Hazard scored with six minutes remaining to clinch a 1-0 victory for the Blues.”The way we were playing, you could see we had the belief that a goal was going to come,” the Chelsea midfielder told Sky Sports.”When Eden got that goal, he can produce magic moments like that. Credit to him and the team who got stuck in.”He’s playing really well. He’s up there with the best in the world. He can produce goals like that out of nothing and to play with a player like that is fantastic.”He’s relaxed, but once he’s on the training pitch he’s magical. He plays with enjoyment. He scores goals and creates goals. He’s laid-back, but on game day he’s ready to make things happen.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

It was just another experience, take it in your stride and get used to it.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

In the Dutch national team with Van Persie, Robben and Sneijder.”But in many ways, Gerrard has remained the most special player for me.”He had everything. He could pass over 40 metres, tackle, score, 50 metres back, it was sometimes not normal.”Kuyt also spoke of a story about Gerrard that every young footballer should know.”Every player at our club should look at his winning mentality,” he added.”I remember when I was at Liverpool, towards the end Steven’s career, there was a match when he didn’t even make the 16-man squad.”In the Netherlands, when that happens, it’s always someone else’s fault. Their first reaction is to blame someone.”Do you know what Steven did? He said nothing, he went home and trained harder than I’ve ever seen someone train the next day. That’s what he is all about.” last_img read more

We were coming off a performance in the Champions League that left a bitter taste in the mouth and perhaps that fired us up even more to go into the derby in the right way.“It’s a deserved victory, I am happy for our fans, because the derby is always the derby.”Lukaku scored his third goal in four Serie A games and praised Conte in his post-match interview, but the Coach expects more.“He can give much more, certainly. I told him that too. He is 26 years old and arrived here thanks to his potential. If we work with him properly, he can become extremely important.“Lautaro Martinez is only 22 years old, so we need to help mould and improve these players with daily work. That’s my job and the important thing is that they are ready to work with me to improve themselves, which they are.“I am happy with our Serie A start, less so in the Champions League, but I do also believe that setback can help bring us back on to the right path.” last_img read more

I always had a great relationship with the people of Liverpool – whether they were red or blue – and this time it was no different.“They’re proper people. Good, honest people. And football is just part of the culture in Liverpool. “From a very young age people are exposed to football in the city and they’re forced to pick a side. Or in most cases it’s picked for them!“I think the fact that it’s a two-club city plays a big part. And then you’ve got the history. There have been so many great sides down the years, for both Everton and Liverpool, and so many great players.“Obviously people talk a lot about the here and now, the current teams, but they talk about days gone by a lot as well.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

He had an excellent combine and impressed numerous franchises during individual workouts. Dorsett was a serious deep threat with the Hurricanes, averaging 24.2 yards per catch, with 10 of his 36 catches going for touchdowns. According to NFL.com, Dorsett’s closest comparison is John Brown. Here’s more: He can challenge teams vertically inside or outside and he has home-run potential after the catch as a slot receiver. With smaller wide receivers like T.Y. Hilton and Antonio Brown proving that small and fast can win in the NFL, Dorsett should be coveted by more than one team and has the potential to turn into a star in the NFL.The Green Bay Packers are now on the clock.last_img read more

Sarri fears Chelsea injury crisis

Posted in myekaaeu on October 27th, 2019

first_imgMaurizio Sarri says Chelsea “are in trouble” after Olivier Giroud became the latest Blues player to suffer an injury.The France international limped off during the second half of Sunday’s 1-0 win against Crystal Palace and had to be replaced by Alvaro Morata.Sarri confirmed after the game that Giroud had picked up an ankle problem but doesn’t yet know how long the striker will be out for.

I don’t know the severity,” said Sarri. “We have to wait for tomorrow. I think that, later in the evening, I will see the doctor for the first results, but I think the real result will only be known tomorrow.”Sarri was already without a number of players for the game at Selhurst Park, including Pedro, who suffered a hamstring injury against Watford on Boxing Day and will be sidelined for two weeks.Cesc Fabregas, Danny Drinkwater, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi were also missing for the trip to south London, leaving Chelsea short on numbers at a critical time of the season.After playing nine games in December Chelsea face a further seven games next month, with a two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final against Tottenham and FA Cup third round tie with Nottingham Forest adding to their workload in the Premier League.That number will rise to eight should they overcome Forest and reach the FA Cup fourth round, scheduled for the final weekend of January.That has left Sarri concerned about how his side will be able to manage such a heavy workload.He added: “In the last few days we were a bit unlucky. Yesterday in 10 minutes we had three injuries – Fabregas, Loftus and Drinkwater – then Giroud today, and we were already without Pedro and Odoi.“We are in trouble because, in January, we have to play every three days.“Fabregas is a neck problem. The injury was in the last five minutes of training, so I’m not sure whether he has to rest for two or 10 days. I will have a meeting with the doctor this evening.”N’Golo Kante scored the only goal at Selhurst Palace to move Chelsea five points clear in fourth place.Next up for the Blues is a home game against Southampton on Wednesday.last_img read more

Emery stands by Lacazette substitution after boos

Posted in yemiwbag on October 27th, 2019

first_imgArsenal manager Unai Emery has defended his decision to substitute Alexandre Lacazette late on against Fulham, which was met with boos from the home crowd.The Gunners secured a 4-1 win over the Cottagers at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday afternoon, thanks to goals from Granit Xhaka, Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.The French striker was lively throughout and managed to add to his goal tally for the season with a cool finish on 55 minutes, after a typically flowing move. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Emery replaced Lacazette with Ramsey with 15 minutes to go and the switch ultimately paid dividends, as Arsenal added two more goals to add gloss to the final scoreline.The Spanish boss was berated by fans after initially making the substitution and while he acknowledged that the supporters have every right to voice their opinion, he felt that his decision was in the best interests of the team.”I understand the supporters,” Emery said post-match. “I need to do my work. Tactically we thought at that moment we needed to change for more balance”Above all we knew that [Jean Michael] Seri was coming on and we needed a player close to him, not to let him play easily with the ball. Ramsey can do that and also help us in the attack, and he scored”In my career, I have different moments when I made similar decisions. We need to decide with a cold mind what is the best decision.”Arsenal remain fifth in the Premier League after their latest victory, two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea having played a game more.December proved to be a difficult month for the Gunners, as they only managed to pick up three wins from seven top-flight matches, which has left them facing a tough task to qualify for next year’s Champions League.An FA Cup third round clash against Blackpool now awaits Emery’s side on Saturday, before a return to Premier League action the following weekend against West Ham.last_img read more
