Lukaku tells Ibrahimovic to ‘bow down’ after Inter Milan win Serie A title

  Romelu Lukaku has taken a dig at Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after Inter Milan were crowned Serie A champions on Sunday. Inter were confirmed champions with four games left, after Atalanta and Sassuolo played out a 1-1 draw. Antonio Conte’s side overhauled Ibrahimovic’s AC Milan earlier this season, before going 13 points clear. Lukaku and the Swedish striker, who were former Manchester United team-mates, clashed in the Coppa Italia quarter-final back in February, trading insults and confronting each other before both men received one-match bans. Inter won that game 2-1 and Lukaku believes he’s had the last laugh over Ibrahimovic. Lukaku wrote on Twitter: “The real god has crowned the king!” “Now bow down. King of Milano,” the striker added, with a winking face and ...

Relegation Looms for West Brom after Wolves Draw

West Brom came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at home to rivals Wolves but the solitary point edges them closer to the drop. Mbaye Diagne's second-half header cancelled out Fabio Silva's fortunate goal in first-half stoppage time but the draw means Sam Allardyce's side are 10 points from safety with four games to go. Wolves had more of the ball throughout but their own frailties were evident as Nuno Espirito Santo's out-of-form team failed to withstand West Brom pressure after the interval. As rain swept across the ground, it took both teams some time to settle into any kind of rhythm but it was Wolves who had the first chance when Romain Saiss headed straight at Sam Johnstone. The away side dominated possession for much of the first half, Nelson Semedo forcing a far better...

Real Madrid vs Chelsea: Tuchel explains why he substituted Azpilicueta, Pulic, Werner

Madrid looked an ageing side up against the bright and bubbly Chelsea attack but managed to fire their way back into the game when Karim Benzema latched onto a couple of knockdowns in the Chelsea area to level the scores in thumping fashion (29).

Leeds' best chance fell to Helder Costas in the second half, but his deflected effort flashed over the bar. The result means Man Utd are 10 points behind their rivals City in second place.
