Rio Ferdinand predicts three clubs that will be relegated this season

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has predicted that Burnley, Watford and Norwich City will be relegated from the Premier League this season.

The Clarets are four points from safety, with Watford and Newcastle United currently occupying the other two relegation spots. Norwich have sat bottom for most of the season, but two successive victories have seen Dean Smith’s team climb to 17th. “I think the bottom-five are cut adrift. I’m going with Burnley, Watford and I think Norwich will get dragged back into it too. “If this break hadn’t happened I ...

Chelsea Star Told To Leave Club Immediately

Former Aston Villa attacker, Gabriel Agbonlahor, has urged Chelsea loanee, Billy Gilmour, he risks wasting another six months of his career unless he calls a premature end to his loan spell at Norwich City. Norwich signed Gilmour on loan from Chelsea in the summer as the Scottish international searched for regular first-team football.

EPL: Iheanacho Reacts to Disallowed Goal in Leicester’s 1-0 Defeat to Norwich

Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, has insisted the ball did not touch his hand, after he saw a goal ruled out during their 1-0 defeat to Norwich City on Friday night. The decision proved to be a turning point in the game, as Jamal Lewis’ spectacular finish in the 70th minute gave the Canaries maximum points. But Iheanacho thought he had given the Foxes the lead four minutes after break, only to see VAR cancel the goal. “Obviously I was concentrating on the ball, I haven’t watched the replay yet but I feel it hit his shoulder and it (the ball) didn’t touch my hand. “As I said I haven’t watched the replay. If that’s the rule, then that’s the rule. I didn’t feel it touched my hand. Obviously if that’s the rule then you do nothing about it,” Iheanacho told Premier Leag...

Solskjaer Believes Both Of Man Utd’s Penalties Should Have Been Retaken

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes both of Manchester United's penalties should have been retaken in their 3-1 win at Norwich City. Rashford and Martial both scored fine goals from open play following their profligacy from 12 yards yet Solskjaer felt VAR should have intervened again and penalised Krul because he was off his line. "I thought the reaction to his miss was excellent," Solskjaer said of Rashford. "Ran back, chased, won the ball back, scored a great goal,but both penalties should have been retaken. "He's off his line by a yard, the 'keeper, so even though I didn't think the first one should've been a penalty, they could have gone back and given him another chance. "It's like the six-second rule with the goalkeeper in his hands, that was used for a couple of months and...

Man City Set Premier League Record In 18-minutes 5-0 Mauling of Watford

Pep Guardiola’s side raced into a stunning 5-0 lead after just 18 minutes as the Hornets had their wings well and truly clipped. Manchester City tore sorry Watford to shred in a stunning opening 18 minutes, going 5-0 up David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Nicolas Otamendi were the players to fire past poor Ben Foster in the away goal. Only three teams have EVER been five goals to the good up at half time. These were Sheffield Wednesday 5-0 up at home to Bolton in 1997, with Man City 6-1 up against Burnley in 2010 and Liverpool up by the same score against Stoke in 2015. It was the perfect Premier League response after the champions slumped to a shock 3-2 defeat at Norwich last weekend. It meant Liverpool moved FIVE points clear at the top of t...

Tottenham 0-1 Newcastle United: Joelinton gives Bruce first win

Joelinton's first-half strike proved decisive at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as Newcastle clung on for Steve Bruce's first win. Steve Bruce claimed his first win as Newcastle United boss as Joelinton's maiden Premier League goal earned a 1-0 triumph at Tottenham. Bruce had seen his side slip to a 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal and a tame 3-1 loss to Norwich City in his opening two matches since taking charge. Those setbacks only served to deepen the gloom that followed Rafael Benitez's departure, but Newcastle produced a superb away performance as Spurs suffered an early slip up in the 2019-20 season.

Tammy Abraham breaks two-decade record with Chelsea double

The 21-year-old becomes the third-youngest Blues player to get a Premier League double after Mark Nicholls and Eddie Newton Tammy Abraham’s double against Norwich City in Chelsea's 3-2 victory on Saturday means he becomes the Blues' third-youngest player to score a Premier League brace, and the youngest to score twice in the top flight since 1998. The attacker struck a delicious first-time volley past Tim Krul after three minutes, and then added the winner in the second half after Norwich had twice equalised. At just 21 years and 326 days old, the wonderkid takes his place in the Chelsea history books alongside Eddie Newton, who achieved the feat at 20 years and 358 days, and Mark Nicholls, who holds the record after netting at 20 years, 225 days in 1998.
