Juventus vs Chelsea: Tuchel confirms injury doubt ahead of Champions League clash

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said he is unsure if Mason Mount will be fit for their Champions League clash against Juventus on Wednesday. Tuchel noted that it will be a “matter of hours” to decide if Mount makes the trip or not. The England midfielder missed Saturday’s loss to Manchester City due to a “minor knock”. Mount has not recovered sufficiently enough for Tuchel to rely on his presence against the Serie A giants. “I absolutely don’t know, we have to see. “In the end it will be a matter of hours as to whether he makes it or not,” Tuchel told Chelsea’s website. The Blues defeated Zenit 1-0 in their opening group game on Match Day 1.

My career has been in shambles at Chelsea – Drinkwater cries out

England midfielder, Danny Drinkwater has admitted that his stay at Chelsea has been nothing but a ‘shambles.’ The former Leicester City man said he is now looking at reviving his career at Reading, where he is currently on a season long loan. Drinkwater, now 31, joined Chelsea from Leicester City in September 2017 for a huge £35m fee, but has failed to find his feet in west London, playing just 23 games for the Blues. The Englishman has spent time on loan at Burnley, Aston Villa, Turkish side Kasimpasa before joining Reading this summer. “Can I paint a picture? No. It’s been a shambles,” Drinkwater told talkSPORT of his Chelsea career. “It’s football, it’s never straight forward, it’s never simple. I’m just excited for the new challenges. “I need to [kick-...

Manchester City Complete Record €117m Signing of Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has completed a £100million (€117m) move from Aston Villa to Manchester City. The England midfielder has put pen to paper on a six-year deal at the Etihad. Still just 25, Grealish had amassed 213 Villa appearances, chipping in with 32 goals and 43 assists. He's comfortably become the most expensive purchase in big-spending City's history, and the deal is the priciest completed by a Premier League club, trumping the €105m Manchester United forked out for Paul Pogba in 2016. Grealish will wear the no.10 at City. "I am incredibly happy to have joined Manchester City,” the former Republic of Ireland U21 player of the year said. “City are the best team in the country with a manager considered to be the best in the world – it’s a dream come true to be part of ...

England vs Denmark: Ex-Chelsea defender, Ashley Cole apologises to Phillips after 2-1 win

Former Chelsea left-back, Ashley Cole, has revealed that he issued a personal apology to England midfielder, Kalvin Phillips after the Three Lions defeated Denmark 2-1 in Wednesday’s Euro 2020 semi-final tie.

Liverpool, which won the competition in 2019, face Real Madrid in the quarter-finals, while Chelsea has been drawn against FC Porto. “Everyone would have wanted Porto,” Cole told BT Sport after the draw was made. “They beat a really poor Juventus side on the night. “Porto were okay, they showed that togetherness.

Southampton vs Chelsea: Zouma Blamed for 1-1 Draw

  Former England midfielder, Joe Cole, has accused Kurt Zouma of “switching off” following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Southampton on Saturday.

The Saints opened scoring in the 33rd minute after Nathan Redmond split Chelsea’s defence with an incisive throw ball and Liverpool loanee Takumi Minamino kept his cool with a sublime finish to break the deadlock. Mason Mount equalised from the penalty spot and the points were shared as the match finished all square. Reflecting on Minamino’s goal, Cole told BT Sport: “It was a lovely one-two from Redmond and as the ball gets played in, now you’re talking about margins in football. “Azpili...

Dele Alli Can Be England’s Zinedine Zidane – Houllier

Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier believes Tottenham and England midfielder Dele Alli can develop into a player the quality of France great Zinedine Zidane. The 21-year-old only moved to White Hart Lane in 2015 from Milton Keynes Dons, but has proved outstanding in his first two years in the Premier League, notching 32 goals in all competitions. Zidane was instrumental in Les Blues’ 1998 World Cup success on home soil and almost led them to triumph again in 2006. Having been a part of the building of France’s Clairefontaine training base in 1988 before the national side won that World Cup and then the Euro 2000 championship, Houllier believes England’s own training centre, St George’s Park, can hone the talent of the likes of Alli. “To me, St George’s Park is a great achiev...
