Chelsea Outclass Spurs to take First-leg lead

Chelsea took a big step towards Wembley as they beat Tottenham 2-0 in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final.

Man United Close to Signing Dortmund’s Sancho – Jones

  Manchester United are close to signing Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho, this summer. This claim was made by respected football expert, Dean Jones. According to Jones, Man United is very “confident” that Sancho, 21, is arriving sooner rather than later with a deal set at around £80 million maximum. “The [Jadon] Sancho vibe is still good from [Manchester] United’s angle,” Jones told The Football Terrace Podcast. “It is hard to get a proper grasp of where we are at in terms of a fee. But I am still told £80 million is really the ceiling for United, they are very keen not to be seen to be going over that. “And however this settles, they would like it to be reported as an £80 million transfer and no more than that. “That is what I have been told and that i...

Europa League final: Why I Didn’t Sub De Gea Before Penalties – Solskjaer

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer , has admitted that he thought about subbing on penalty specialist Dean Henderson, as spot kicks loomed in their Europa League final on Wednesday night. However, Solskjaer insists he was “confident” in David de Gea, who played he entire game.

De Gea faced 11 penalties and saved none, before missing the decisive penalty himself. Since 2016, De Gea has saved none of the 25 penalties he has faced in all competitions, while Henderson has kept out 47% of the 17 penalties over the same period.

Leicester 2-4 Tottenham: Foxes miss out on Champions League again as Spurs secure European football

Leicester missed out on the Champions League for a second successive season after a 4-2 defeat to Tottenham on the final day saw them finish in fifth, while Spurs secured their European place.

It began well for them too as Leicester were awarded a penalty inside 15 minutes. Toby Alderweireld caught Jamie Vardy around the ankles, and the striker fired home from the spot (18). But just before half-time, Harry Kane (41) finished superbly to secure his third Premier League Golden Boot - the joint-highest number of wins in history with Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer - in possibly his last game for Tottenham. The second half f...

I Was Written Off but never Gave up – Iheanacho

Leicester City’s in-form striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, says he never lost faith in himself while going through a rough patch in his career, adding that he was confident that he would return to form.

However, the former Manchester City striker has returned to form for The Foxes and was named March’s Premier League Player of The Month and is on course for a double award for April.
