Chelsea Manager,Frank Lampard has challenged Michy Batshuayi to step up and show some consistency with Tammy Abraham seemingly facing a spell on the sidelines.

FA Cup: Manchester United 1 – 0 Wolverhampton

It had appeared last season that Juan Mata was on his way out of Manchester United and that this campaign he was becoming little more than a bit part player but he re-emerged to score the vital goal which earned them a FA Cup Third Round replay victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Mata has given the impression of reaching veteran status, despite being just 31, and when he collected Anthony Martial’s clever pass there was an awful lot of the Old Trafford pitch to cover. But the midfielder did just that and showed a surprising turn of pace as he held off defenders before deftly lifting the ball over Wolves goalkeeper John Ruddy who clattered into him. It lifted the atmosphere also around Old Trafford, far from full once more for a cup game and despite there being 3,000 Wolves f...

Mr Buhari and his party had explored all available means at its disposal to ensure Mr Lawan succeeded the immediate past President of the 8th Senate, Bukola Saraki, Although the top l...

Chelsea Ordered to Pay Conte £9million

Chelsea have been ordered to pay former manager Antonio Conte £9million in compensation, the UK Mirror reports. Conte, who won the Premier League and FA Cup during his two years in west London, has been embroiled in a bitter divorce from the club. The Italian was sacked last summer and engaged in a legal fight with the Blues, citing unfair dismissal. The former Juventus boss, who has held off taking another job during the past 12 months, wanted the final year of his contract paid in full. Now, a three-person Premier League managers’ Arbitration Tribunal, has ruled in favour of Conte. However, if Chelsea refuse to accept the Tribunal’s ruling, then the judgment can be challenged in the High Court.

Relief for PSG as UEFA Drops Financial Probe

Paris Saint-Germain has won a major victory following Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling backing the club against UEFA over allegations of financial wrongdoing. PSG had appealed to the CAS in October last year after a UEFA panel decided in September to reopen the probe into the club’s compliance with Financial Fair Play regulations. UEFA had originally cleared PSG of wrongdoing in June following a probe triggered after PSG splashed out €400 million to buy Brazilian superstar Neymar and French phenomenon Kylian Mbappe. “The appeal filed at the CAS on 3 October 2018 by Paris Saint-Germain against the decision issued on 19 September 2018 by the Adjudicatory Chamber of the UEFA (to reopen the case) is upheld and the challenged decision is set aside,” CAS said in a statement yes...
