Arsenal 2-2 Hull City – Welbeck’s Late Equalizer Secures A Point For Arsenal

Arsenal had to rely on a stoppage time goal from Danny Welbeck to deny Hull a victory at the Emirates Stadium. The season is getting from bad to worse for Arsenal as the London club barely escaped an embarrassing home defeat at the hands of Hull City. A goal from Danny Welbeck in the injury time helped Arsenal secure a point from the game, leaving them 11 points behind league leaders Chelsea. Arsenal were off to a good start as the Gunners were the dominant force in the first 20 minutes of the game. Hull City were laidback in their approach as they allowed Arsenal to create number of chances early in the game. Keeper Steve Harper was forced to make two saves early in the game, when the veteran kept out a Welbeck attempt and tipped over a curling shot from Santi Cazorla. Arsenal were successful in beating the Hull City defence when a low shot from Alexis Sanchez […] Read more »

Sergio Aguero Becomes Manchester City’s All-Time Premier League Top Scorer After Four-Star Show

Sergio Aguero struck FOUR goals for Mancehster City against Tottenham on Saturday as the hosts cruised to a 4-1 victory Tottenham manager Maurico Pochettino made the comparison between Aguero and Mozart in the build up to this match, attempting to convey something of the Argentine’s special talent. Perhaps he might wish to temper his praise in future, for Aguero played like a man inspired by the compliment. He was sublime and Pochettino, if not quite weeping by the end, would at least have been overwhelmed with emotion: frustration, mainly. In a game of four penalties – only two of them awarded correctly – Aguero scored four goals, might have had seven were it not for Hugo Lloris and dominated a game in which City chose to rest key men for their crucial Champions League clash in Moscow on Tuesday ‘It was amusing game for the fans,’ said Manuel Pellegrini ,in his usual tone. ‘It was 4-1 but it could have […] Read more »

Liverpool Striker Daniel Sturridge Faces Another Month Out With A Calf Injury

Liverpool have been dealt a major blow after Daniel Sturridge suffered a new injury setback. The Reds striker could be out for one more month after scans confirmed that he pulled his calf during training on Thursday. The 25-year-old was scheduled to make his comeback against QPR this Sunday but now faces another frustrating spell on the treatment table. He will definitely miss Wednesday’s blockbuster clash with Real Madrid in the Champions League. “Daniel has pulled his calf,” Rodgers told the ECHO. “He’s looking at being out for another two to four weeks.” “It’s a big blow as we were looking forward to welcoming Daniel back. He has worked tirelessly.” “But we have other players training hard and working hard and we will turn to them. It’s why we bulked up the squad in the summer.” Mario Balotelli has so far struggled to settle in his new club but Rodgers believes the Italian will deliver as Liverpool enter a crucial […] Read more »

Chelsea FC: Jose Mourinho ‘Flattered’ By Comparison To Brian Clough

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has paid tribute to the late Brian Clough and insists there is no comparison between him and the legendary former Nottingham Forest manager. Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock compared Mourinho to Brian Clough, and the Blues boss was happy to receive the compliment.”I obviously feel very flattered with his comments but I don’t think there is a comparison.Mr Clough is a legend in English football; what he did, especially at Nottingham Forest, will be remembered forever.It was a big loss for English football when he went so early but I’m nobody compared with him. If Neil said that, it makes me very proud, but the legacy of Mr Clough has no comparison.” “Neil’s a great motivator; I was behind his dugout when he played the play-off final against Watford (in 2013), and I saw the way he feels the game, communicates, interacts with players. If he does that during 90 minutes and in training he brings […] Read more »

Chelsea’s Title Challenge: Adaptability Key to Success

Jose Mourinho was understandably pleased following his side’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal that gave the Blues clear daylight at the top of the Barclays Premier League. “In this moment, our team can adapt to everything”, enthused the Portuguese manager in a post-match interview. “We are not this kind of fundamentalist team who only play one way, think one thing. We can play different ways, adapt to different situations.” Whilst the statement might be perceived as the latest attack on Wenger and Arsenal in a war of words that seems to have no end in sight, it underlines the most salient reason behind Chelsea’s success thus far this season – their adaptability. Particularly over the past month, the Stamford Bridge outfit have shown that they are a side capable of winning games by adapting their own style of football to the opposition. This isn’t to say that Chelsea are the only team that can do this. Crucially however, they can do […] Read more »
