Ian Wright names ‘super player’ in Chelsea Squad

Arsenal hero, Ian Wright, has identified Chelsea wing-back Reece James as a ‘super player’. Wright said this while praising James for his scintillating performances for Chelsea and England so far this season.

Recall that James set up England’s first goal in their 5-0 win over 5-0 win in Friday’s World Cup qualifier. The 21-year-old has scored four goals and registered four assists in twelve appearances in all competitions for Chelsea so far this season. “He’s keeping someone like Trent Alexander-Arnold out, who is a fantastic player himself.

Neil Warnock names 3 Premier League Managers better than Alex Ferguson

Former Middlesbrough manager, Neil Warnock has named three past and present managers in the Premier League who are better than Manchester United icon Sir Alex Ferguson.

But, Warnock still believes he was the best in the league and thinks three other managers have brought more to the Premier League than he did. “Since the Premier League started if I was picking my top five managers… I would pick Arsene We...

Solskjaer Gives Reason for Man United’s 3-1 Loss Against Leicester City

  Solskjaer said Man United players didn’t have the spark against Leicester at the King Power Stadium. According to him, the Red Devils tried against the Foxes but couldn’t get the right adrenaline boost against the host. Kelechi Iheanacho’s brace and a strike from Youri Tielemans ensured Brendan Rodgers’s men knocked out Man United from the FA Cup. “We did not have the spark tonight, but it is understandable. This team has been fantastic in the last three or four months,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport. “Thursday night in Milan was a big night and took a lot of out of us physically. We did not have the extra zip, authority and confidence today. “We tried to get on the front foot and start well. Sometimes you can get that adrenaline boost and confidence if you get a go...

Ancelotti Compares Thomas Tuchel to Frank Lampard

Everton boss, Carlo Ancelotti, has compared Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea to the Frank Lampard era ahead of both sides clash in the Premier League on Monday night at Stamford Bridge. Ancelotti said Tuchel has the quality, while Lampard did a fantastic job during his time at the Blues. Tuchel has not lost a match in his last ten games as Chelsea manager since he replaced Lampard last January. “Offensively, they [Chelsea] play a little bit different but not too much because the quality of the players is still the same,” Ancelotti said as quoted by football365. “Now they are really consistent because they haven’t lost under Tuchel, and they are solid, but this doesn’t mean Lampard didn’t do a good job.

Hudson-Odoi Not Happy With Thomas Tuchel – Joe Cole

  Former Chelsea star, Joe Cole has said that Callum Hudson-Odoi is not happy with the way he was treated by manager Thomas Tuchel during Saturday’s Premier League clash with Southampton. Cole said the manager took a huge gamble with his treatment of the Ghanaian born England International. During the 1-1 draw with the Saints, Tuchel only subbed on the winger at half-time, only to pull him off again just 31 minutes later. Visibly angry Hudson-Odoi left the field and kicked a water bottle as he walked up the steps to take his place in the stands. After Tuchel told the press that he was not happy with the 20-year-old’s performance, “I was not happy with the attitude and energy…” Cole reacted, saying: “…I just question whether it was unnecessary at the time to upset...

Everton defender Mason Holgate admits captaincy ambitions

Everton defender Mason Holgate admits he has captaincy ambitions. However, Holgate has no intentions of usurping current club skipper Seamus Coleman just yet. “Obviously that would be a massive, massive honour," the Toffees defender said when asked if he hopes to be named captain in the future during a Q&A with fans on the official club website. “It would be great to do that but at the moment we've got Seamus [Coleman] who's a fantastic captain and has helped me massively ever since I've been at the club and done so many things for me. I think the whole changing room has got so much respect for him. “So to learn off him and have him as a captain at the moment is great and I think the whole changing room can say that and vouch for that themselves."
