Europa League: Solskjaer Blames Stadium Seats, Red Belts for Man Utd’s Poor Home Form

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has suggested the red wrap on the seats at Old Trafford, could have contributed to their inconsistent home form. According to him, the players were unable to pick each other out during games. United have won 27 points at Old Trafford this season, losing four times and drawing three. However, on the road, they have picked up 36 points and are unbeaten in 23 Premier League games.

Liverpool vs Real Madrid: Thomas Tuchel picks who Chelsea Prefer to Face in Semi-finals

  Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel has said that he would prefer a Champions League semi-final clash with Real Madrid instead of Liverpool.

Chelsea will now wait for the winner between Liverpool and Real Madrid with the Spanish side leading the Premier League outfit 3-1 on aggregate. And Tuchel said he typically prefers to avoid teams from the same league in European knockout games. “I don...

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss said he had some quick words with the players which was majorly to calm them down and prepare them for more to come. Being their first loss in 14 games, the manager said he made the player understand that they have to accept and find a away to deal with it. Since taken over from Frank Lampard towards the end of January, Thomas Tuchel’s Blues kept over 7 clean sheets and had 14 matches unbeaten run in all competitions. The German gaffer also said that he will digest the game later once they are less ‘emotional’. Chelsea took at Stamford Bridge through Christian Pulisic but the game flippe...

De Gea Set to leave Man United

  Manchester United goalkeeper, David de Gea, is set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season with a big pay-off to cut his contract at the club early as Dean Henderson officially becomes manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-choice keeper. According to the Mirror, De Gea and three other senior keepers, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant and Joel Pereira, are expected to be let go at the end of the season. Man United are ready to part ways with De Gea and want to get his eye-watering £350,000-a-week wages off their books. But with two years left to run on De Gea’s contract, any move by Man United to move the 30-year-old on will likely involve a substantial pay-out to cut his time at the Red Devils short. De Gea’s form has come under significant scrutiny over the past fe...

Chelsea vs West Brom: Why I substituted Christian Pulisic during EPL defeat – Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has explained why he substituted winger, Christian Pulisic, during his side’s Premier League 5-2 defeat against West Brom on Saturday. Tuchel substituted Pulisic, who scored a goal against West Brom, before the start of the second half at Stamford Bridge. The American international was replaced by Mason Mount as goals from Matheus Pereira (2), Callum Robinson (2) and Mbaye Diagne gave West Brom all three points against Chelsea. But Tuchel is now saying that he substituted Pulisic during Chelsea’s defeat against West Brom because the 22-year-old complained about a hamstring problem. “Christian [Pulisic] did a sprint when he came back out for the second half and said that he felt his hamstring would not survive the game if he continued,” Tuchel sa...

Arsenal vs Liverpool: Arteta ‘not Suspicious’ of Aubameyang After New Contract

  Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has insisted he is “not suspicious” that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s poor form this season is connected to the new long-term contract he signed in September. Aubameyang had been prolific for the Gunners since he joined from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018. The Gabon striker won the Premier League golden boot in his first full season and finished as the second highest scorer in 2019/2020. But Aubameyang has found things tougher this campaign, scoring just 14 goals in 31 appearances so far. When asked about any link between Aubameyang’s form and his new deal, Arteta said: “It is easy to connect things like that, but I am not suspicious of that. “I have seen, and we have had many conversations, about what he wanted to do from last ...

I Have Great Option of Two Top Goalkeepers – Solskjaer on Man Utd’s First-choice Goalkeeper

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has spoken about his first-choice goalkeeper, with David de Gea’s return. The Red Devils welcome Brighton on Sunday in the Premier League. Dean Henderson had featured in United’s last six features, after De Gea was given permission to fly to Spain for the birth of his child. Despite a number of high-profile mistakes by De Gea this season, Solskjaer has remained loyal to the Spaniard for United’s biggest games. With both goalkeepers now available, Solskjaer has said he will use both Henderson and De Gea in the coming weeks, rather than install either as his first choice. “I have the great option of two top goalkeepers and it’s a pleasure to have them here. “We’ve got nine games, plus five in the Europa League h...
