CHELSEA EQUAL UNWANTED PREMIER LEAGUE RECORD

CHELSEA EQUAL UNWANTED PREMIER LEAGUE RECORD

Chelsea have matched an unwanted record after they were beaten again away from the Premier League this season. The Blues were on the receiving end of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Southampton despite taking the lead. To this effect, they have now lost at least two of their opening five games for the second time in the Premier League era. They lost three of their opening five games during the 2015/16 season under manager Jose Mourinho as they failed to successfully defend their league title from the previous season.

New signing Raheem Sterling was the star of the show during the Leicester City game at the weekend after he scored a brace to lead 10-man Chelsea to a 2-1 home win in the league. He made it three goals in two games with the opening goal against Southampton midway through the first half. However, the hosts were level within five minutes thanks to the stunning strike from young midfielder Romeo Lavia who was signed from Manchester City this summer.

                 EVERTON IN TALKS TO SIGN MAN UNITED MIDFIELDER JAMES GARNER

According to The Athletic, Premier League club, Everton are in negotiations with Manchester United for young midfielder James Garner. The 21-year-old came through the ranks at Manchester United before making his first team bow under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. However, Garner made just a handful of first-team appearances and was largely consigned to the reserve side.

Garner spent the 2021/22 season on loan at Championship side Nottingham Forest, playing a key role in their promotion to the Premier League. A return to Carrington this summer was much anticipated, but it could prove to be a short-lived one for the young Manchester United midfielder. Erik ten Hag does not appear to have the 21-year-old in his plans for the 2021/22 season. This will prove to be a hindrance to the youngster’s development, and an exit could beckon. There is no shortage of clubs interested, with several teams keeping tabs on the situation.

   TOTTENHAM SET TO OPEN TALKS FOR RUSLAN MALINOVSKYI-SERGIO REGUILON SWAP

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Tottenham are considering swapping Sergio Reguilon with Atalanta for attacking midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi. A deal could suit all parties concerned, with the Serie A side keen on the Spurs left-back. Tottenham could still make a move or two before the transfer deadline, as Antonio Conte is keen on adding options that strengthen the squad. The manager could look for opportunistic signings that could add quality depth.

While Spurs have strengthened significantly during the window, Conte has been looking for an attacking midfielder to complete his squad. With not much time left in the transfer window, the Lilywhites are in need of upping the ante in their search for a player. The Italian manager wanted to bring Nicolo Zaniolo in this window, but AS Roma’s demands have made it difficult for Tottenham to spend huge sums. They even attempted to get him on loan, but no move materialised. Hence, Tottenham are considering Ruslan Malinovskyi as an alternative, with the Ukrainian in the last year of his contract.
