The Brazilian winger played for his boyhood team from the age of 10 until he departed in 2007 for Shakhtar. Rumoured Liverpool target Raphina is another to have been linked with a Barcelona move, and while a swoop for the Leeds United winger seems far more realistic than moves for Salah, Haaland or Lewandowski, there is still work that needs to be done to put the club in a position to even be active participants in the summer window. You could put these names in a hat. I always suspected that Everton’s strong defence in Martinez’s first season was down to the memory of Moyes, not the new manager undergoing an epiphany. Yes there are issues around Everton’s defence but the fact is the goal was offside and Martinez has every right to be angry. A similar thing happened at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger inherited George Graham’s defence. Arsene Wenger. The Emirates ingrates will be at it from day one if Arsenal do not beat Leicester City on Friday night. Pep Guardiola. Comes with the territory of being the world’s most-iconic manager with one of the world’ biggest budgets.
That was down to the manager. Instead, the January transfer window has offered a swifter resolution and the player the chance to end his nightmare, albeit as another big name to have left Arsenal without much of a farewell. Made in Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo (left) was among several stars attending the Grand National today to watch the action, wearing a pink coat dress and carrying a small maroon handbag. Nemanja Matic (Chelsea to Manchester United, £40m). The plan collapsed last night when Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man United, Arsenal and Spurs all pulled out. Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool. Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City. Diego Costa doing the Chelsea analysis on MNF. My fear for Chelsea is that without Diego Costa, without more significant signings and with Conte grumbling, it could fall apart again. Some signings shape the future of football, define your club’s very history; some cause fans to bang their heads against the wall in sheer misery. Arsenal fans whining about Arsene Wenger. Arsene Wenger putting on his red shoes to dance the blues. However, the Belgian’s performances this season could not have been more different and his monumental personal slump correlated with the Blues team’s fall from grace.
City, however, equalized barely a minute later, was soon ahead, and wound up cruising to the title. 10:55 p.m. Karim Benzema has scored the opening goal of the Champions League final in the 51st minute. Following Liverpool’s long-running pursuit of the 26-year-old Netherlands centre back, Southampton announced on Wednesday that it accepted the record fee ahead of the January transfer window opening. Gatland played Owen Farrell at fly-half, whereas Jones prefers him at centre with more creativity at 10. After the defeat, Farrell was switched to centre and in came Johnny Sexton. News of the sudden change-of-heart came as hundreds of Chelsea fans tonight rallied against the club’s involvement in the breakaway plans in a rowdy protest outside Stamford Bridge. Chelsea were brilliant last year -but to a certain extent the board got away with it. Didn’t think he got enough credit. It’s been boring enough to stomach for the last few years, so give it a rest and get behind your club and your manager, you pampered, spoiled muppets. David Wagner has enough about him to make a fight of this. But with success harder to come by today than in the Sir Alex Ferguson years, many fans blame a relentless focus on signing new sponsorship deals and exploring new markets to make profit.
To say the relationship between Rovers fans. Where did I say the goal should have stood? Those teams, with the possible exception of Chelsea, don’t have the depth of talent at the back that Everton have. Finally, the Premier League is back. Wolves’ win at Goodison Park saw them equal their highest tally of 11 victories in a Premier League season, dating back to the 2010-2011 campaign. Call us bottle jobs, but you can’t compare apples and oranges, so we’ve picked the Premier League GOAT for both clubs respectively and it’s two midfield maestros that occupy the throne in our eyes. One-year-old Wilfred attended the wedding, as did two official witnesses. City will be notable (again) for being behind by half-time away from home in league games and their chances popping like a burst balloon. I’m looking forward to being on the pitch. Chelsea. If City and United set the pace domestically, it’s easy to see a situation where the Champions League becomes Chelsea’s main target. Manchester City. I think it will be very close between City and United. Huddersfield, Newcastle, Southampton. Think the curse of Ashley will strike Newcastle again. Traditionally I always think Watford will go down, but they never do.
