Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea preview here on the channel tonight and I honestly believe that Thomas Tuchel needs to change the way we are playing if we are to get a result against Diego Simeone's side - one of the most organised in Europe.   For me, the 3-4-3 formation doesn't work and if anything, takes away one of the real strengths of our squad - natural width with our wingers in Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech. Playing in a 4-2-3-1 formation (against their three-man defence and one holdi...

Lethal Messi leads Barca to thumping Alaves win ahead of PSG test

Madrid (AFP) – Barcelona might not be able to catch Atletico Madrid but they may fancy their chances against Paris Saint-Germain after Lionel Messi scored twice in a 5-1 thrashing of Alaves on Saturday.  Messi fired in two sensational long-range efforts and would have had a hat-trick at Camp Nou had a dubious VAR decision in the first half not ruled Antoine Griezmann offside.  He did tee up a second of the night for the 21-year-old Francisco Trincao and was instrumental in Junior Firpo adding a...
