Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Tuchel makes Sergio Ramos prediction ahead of UCL semi-final

  Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has predicted that Sergio Ramos will be recalled by Zinedine Zidane for Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The first leg ended 1-1 in Spain last week. Chelsea’s impressive defensive record under Tuchel will be put to the test in the return leg. But their hopes of breaking down Real’s defence could even be tougher, should Ramos return for the first time since March 13. The 35-year-old suffered a calf injury playing for Spain and is working his way back to match fitness. Tuchel however expects Ramos to start for the first time in nearly six weeks for his club. He said: “Does Ramos play or not? This is a tough question because I simply don’t know it. We will see after the trainin...

Man Utd Losing Battle for Cavani

  Manchester United are losing the battle to keep striker Edinson Cavani at the club next season, the UK Mirror reports. United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, already confirmed he has held talks with the 34-year-old about triggering a one-year extension. Cavani is yet to respond to the Premier League club’s £200,000-a-week offer. Solskjaer is aware the Uruguayan striker is keen to return to South America this summer.

Solskjaer hopes Cavani can still be convinced by a successful end to the season, with United fighting to finish in the top four and win the Europa League.

Blades Punish Wasteful Brighton to Seal Rare Win

Rock-bottom Sheffield United secured only their fifth Premier League win of the season as David McGoldrick's first-half strike was enough to clinch a 1-0 victory over Brighton at Bramall Lane on Saturday Night Football. The Blades' fate was sealed last weekend when they were narrowly beaten by Wolves, but the hallmarks of their successful first season back in the top-flight were back on display during a resolute performance that ultimately came too late in their quest to beat the drop. McGoldrick's winning strike (19) was far from a thing of beauty as a series of attempted clearances and ricochets allowed the striker to shoot on the turn and wrong-foot goalkeeper Robert Sanchez. Brighton, who remain in 16th place, were denied an equaliser upon VAR review when Jakub Moder found t...

Lampard was not Ready for Chelsea Job – Jorginho Slams Former boss

  Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, has said former manager Frank Lampard “wasn’t ready” for the managerial job, because he “skipped a few steps”. Jorginho stated this in an interview with ESPN Brasil. Lampard replaced Maurizio Sarri in 2019, leading the Blues to a top-four finish and an FA Cup final during his debut campaign. It was viewed as a successful season, especially after Chelsea had lost Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and could not sign players due to a FIFA transfer ban. Chelsea splashed out £220 million last summer but Lampard failed to get the best out of new boys Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, which resulted in his dismissal in January. Jorginho only played 90 minutes on four occasions under Lampard this season and feels the former England midfielder needed m...
