West Ham create shortlist of players to replace Marko Arnautovic

Arnautovic wants to leave West Ham Chinese outfit Shanghai SIPG are interested in signing West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic. Shanghai SIPG are said to have made a £35m bid for the Hammers forward, although that bid was turned down. However, the Chinese side are reportedly going to come back in for Arnautovic with a bid in the region of £45m. This may well tempt West Ham into agreeing to let the Austrian go as they are believed to value Arnautovic at around £50m. Arnautovic himself has also made...

Juventus reject Chelsea’s loan deal for Gonzalo Higuain

Chelsea’s need for a new number nine At just over the halfway point in the 2018/19 season, it is clear Chelsea need a new striker. Olivier Giroud has scored just one league goal for Chelsea this campaign and is simply not good enough. Alvaro Morata has also struggled for form this season although the Spaniard has scored five league goals compared to Giroud’s one. However, Morata looks to be edging close to a Stamford Bridge exit this January. Sevilla are said to be keen on Morata, while Atletic...

Roy Hodgson gives Vicente Guaita injury update before Liverpool

Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Crystal Palace travel to Liverpool on Saturday for perhaps their toughest test of the season. After losing 2-1 vs Watford this past weekend, Palace have now amassed just 22 points from 22 league games. As a result, the Eagles are now just four points above the drop zone and in danger of being sucked into a relegation battle. It is also unlikely that Palace will come away with anything over than a loss on Saturday as Liverpool are unbeaten at Anfield this season in th...

Arsenal still keen on signing Denis Suarez in January despite transfer restrictions

Arsenal will not make any permanent signings in January With just over half a season gone, the jury is still out on if Unai Emery has improved Arsenal. Arsenal did go on a 22-match unbeaten run earlier in the season across all competitions. Despite this, Arsenal are still only in 5th place in the Premier League and after losing to West Ham on Saturday, are now six points behind 4th place Chelsea. As a result, Emery may have been keen to add some more additions to his squad in the winter window....

Unai Emery gives Mesut Ozil future update after West Ham

West Ham 1 Arsenal 0 Arsenal travelled to West Ham on Saturday as they looked to close the gap on the top four. Arsenal are also in danger of 6th place Manchester United catching up with them, so a win vs West Ham was vital. The big talking point heading into the game with West Ham was the absence of Mesut Ozil from the matchday squad. Ozil’s relationship with Unai Emery does not seem to be the best and the German has been left out several times this season, including vs West Ham. This may have...

Tottenham 0 Manchester United 1 Tottenham hosted Manchester United on Sunday as they looked to put an end to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s unbeaten start as United boss. Solskjaer had won his first five games in charge of Man United, four in the Premier League and one in the FA Cup. But going to Tottenham was by far his biggest test as United gaffer.

United had won their previous four league games under Solskjaer vs Cardiff, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Bournemouth. But going to 3rd place Tottenham would be the real test for a new look United side. United played a lot of counter-attacking football but still went out and attacked Spurs. Man United’s tactics were eventually rewarded in the 44th minute when Paul Pogba ...

Twitter reacts to Andre Schurrle’s stunning strike vs Burnley

Burnley vs Fulham Fulham travelled to Burnley on Saturday as they looked to pick up three key points. Fulham started the day in 19th place on 14 points and could not climb out of the relegation zone, even if they won. Fulham’s biggest issue since winning promotion has been keeping out goals. In 21 league games this campaign, Fulham have let in a staggering 47 goals, the worst record in the league. Granted, Fulham have kept two clean sheets since Claudio Ranieri took over as Fulham boss. However...

Marko Arnautovic drops huge West Ham exit hint vs Arsenal

West Ham 1 Arsenal 0 10th place West Ham took on 5th place Arsenal in Saturday’s first game of the day. A win for West Ham could have seen them move as high as 7th depending on how many they scored. Arsenal would start the game the brighter of the two sides with Alexander Lacazette having the best early chance. West Ham would, however, grow into the game and Declan Rice came very close to giving them the lead just before the break. The 19-year-old would then actually give them the lead in the 4...

Maurizio Sarri slams Bayern’s lack of ‘respect’ over Hudson-Odoi move

Sarri isn’t happy in the slightest Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has criticised Bayern Munich over a lack of professionalism and respect in their pursuit of Callum Hudson-Odoi. The Blues youngster has been in the headlines for a number of weeks now following interest from the German giants. Bayern made their first move for the player at the very end of 2018 with a bid which was rejected.  The Bundesliga side then tabled another bid, said to be £30million, which was also rejected.  Then, this week...

Claudio Ranieri urges Fulham to sign experienced leader in January

Fulham’s poor defensive record After 21 games weeks, Fulham currently sit 19th in the Premier League with just 14 points. Fulham have won just three games this season, drawing five and losing 13 in the league. The main reason Fulham are doing so poorly this campaign is their awful defensive record. Fulham have let in an astonishing 47 goals in 21 games, the worst record in the league. They have also kept just two clean sheets this season vs Newcastle and Huddersfield, the two lowest scoring tea...

Jose Mourinho responds to rumours of Benfica move

Mourinho’s return to Portugal is a non-starter Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has responded to the rumours suggesting he could return to Portugal and manage Benfica. The Portuguese boss was sacked not too long ago following a disappointing season at Manchester United. The atmosphere around the club was truly toxic and after a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, he was given his marching order. He then went somewhat underground as he planned to take time off and see where the next move would c...

Marko Arnautovic wants to leave West Ham for China admits his agent

Massive blow for West Ham West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic wants to leave the club for the Chinese Super League according to his agent after the Hammers received a bid for him. It was revealed on Wednesday evening that a Chinese Super League club had bid £35million for the player. While the club was not named, there was much discussion over whether West Ham would accept it. £35million seems pretty low for a player who is so important to the Hammers. Though, Arnautovic’s brother and agent Danij...

Has the cash dried up at the Emirates? Arsenal boss Unai Emery has admitted today that the club have no money to spend on making permanent signings in the January transfer window.

Atletico Madrid join race for Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata

Morata attracting attention from Spain Since arriving at Chelsea from Real Madrid Alvaro Morata has never really been at his best for the Blues. The Spaniard started the 2017/18 season well for Chelsea bagging six in his first six games. But he would then score just one league goal in the second half of last season. Morata may have hoped a change in manager would help him rediscover his form this campaign. Unfortunately, Maurizio Sarri appears to be equally as frustrated with him. Sarri has eve...
