Why Jamie Carragher believes Chelsea are the new Arsenal

Arsenal move above Chelsea One of the amazing byproducts of Man City’s six 6-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday was that Arsenal moved up the table. In the Sunday Times, before the match at the Etihad Stadium, Graeme Souness wrote off Arsenal’s top four chance. Souness argued that the final Champions League berth was a fight between Man United and Chelsea. But after shipping six goals against City, Chelsea slipped behind Arsenal in the league on goal difference. Man United are fourth with 51 points. ...

Mohamed Salah’s social media update after Man City & Chelsea lost

Man City & Chelsea lose Liverpool were huge winners on Saturday in the Premier League after Manchester City and Chelsea both lost. Chelsea’s title hopes were already in the balance after defeats to Tottenham and Wolves. However any residual hopes Chelsea may be able to force themselves back into contention seemed snuffed out in a 1-0 defeat at home to Leicester. A Jamie Vardy goal sunk the Blues in the 51st minute. However the shock of the day came as Crystal Palace beat Man City 3-2 at the Eti...

Tottenham told how they can catch Man City next season

Money Most Premier League teams would admit that Manchester City have run away with the league this season, and come next term, they’re going to be heavy favourites to do the same once again. That’s not only because they’ve got a top side as it is, but because they will spend heavily in the summer to add to anything their manager, Pep Guardiola, thinks could do with improving – meaning other sides will have to do double to keep up. That’s the view according to Ian Wright, who noted that Spurs c...

Everyone noticed how angry Eden Hazard was for Chelsea vs Man City

Not happy Chelsea fans were surprised when they once again played Eden Hazard as a false nine against Manchester City – and the player himself looked unimpressed. He made it very clear that he wanted more of the ball, and asking him to head things when he’s half the size of Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud just seemed to annoy him more – and it was a feature of the first half against City. Chelsea were woeful, but with two strikers on the bench it was surprising to see Hazard deployed in that po...
