Cesc Fabregas game Impresses many Ex-Footballer

Cesc Fabregas is earning a lot of accolades from the ex-Footballers for the beauty of a show that he put on at the Merseyside the other day in the very little time that he spent on the field.

Conte went into the game with two playmakers and Fabregas was not one of them as has been the case so often this season. The Spaniard was amongst the benchers and didn’t get a look in for the first 81 minutes of the game.

But when he eventually got a look in after that, he absolutely ruled the field and made sure that everybody’s eyes remained on him till the end as he helped the Blues stretch their lead to three-nil with one of the gorgeous crosses one can ever hope to see.

Phil Neville, the former member of the England national squad, reckons what makes Fabregas a fantastic playmaker is his imagination. He foresees players getting into certain positions and plans his passes accordingly. He also seems to have a 360 degree vision as he is always aware of who is around him and at what distance.

N’Golo Kante Ready to Repeat Heroics of Last Season

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante says that he is very keen on winning the league title this season, and he is prepared to dive into the experiences of last campaign in order to repeat the success.

The French midfielder came to the Premier league only last season, but he managed to become the unsung hero in Leicester City’s incredible triumph of the league title. This persuaded Chelsea to pay an incredible £30 million, which now looks like a bargain, for the midfielder in the summer. Despite possessing defensive midfielders like Nemanja Matic, the club felt the urge to sign the Frenchman.

He has once again been an integral part in the success of the Chelsea’s campaign, especially in Antonio Conte’s first season in England. He has helped the club to top the table with four matches left. Chelsea are looking odds-on favourite to win the league title, but there have been signs of slipping down from the great heights.

Manchester United admittedly has not been as impressive but they have a reason to cheer up as the year ends.

Of recent, Jose Mourinho’s men have started playing attacking football that is interesting to watch. Watching game at Old Trafford is a delight after a few bumps on the way.

With expensive additions like former Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria flopping at Old Trafford and ex La Liga and Ligue 1 star Radamel Falcao not getting the goals, additions by the Portuguese manager have been decent. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been getting the goals, Paul Pogba has been decent, Armenian forward Henrikl Mkhitaryan seem to be finding his rhythm and Eric Baily has been trying for the team.

Marounane Felliani was the top choice over veteran Michael Carrick but Carrick seem to combine well now with Pogba. Ander Herrara has been impressive thus far. The Spain international started the first game but had to wait six games before getting called into action again. His display have been satisfying by many standards under Mourinho.


Bournemouth are very intent on stopping Zlatan Ibrahimovic

It appears that Premier League outfit Bournemouth are very intent on stopping Zlatan Ibrahimovic more than world record signing Paul Pogba.

Ibrahimovic has come to Manchester United on a free transfer from Paris St Germain, whilePogba has just been the most sensational news of 2016 after joining the Red Devils for a world record fee of £ 89 million. However, Ibrahimovic has been grabbing equal attention in recent weeks following his debut goal against Leicester City in the Community Shield. Known as a fierce goalscorer wherever he has been, Ibrahimovic is looking to win a league title in his fifth major country.

Eddie Howe received a lot of praise for the way he managed to keep Bournemouth in the Premier League against all the odds. Even though the club had very little transfer money, they managed to remain without any relegation fears throughout the 2015-16 campaign. The second season in the Premier league is always tough for newly promoted teams. If this holds true, Bournemouth need to start picking up points from the first weekend in order to avoid relegation. Howe has challenged his players to keep Ibrahimovic quiet since he sees this as a first step towards success against Manchester United this weekend.

Gotze may return to Dortmund

German club Borussia Dortmund is currently working on a bid to bring Mario Gotze back from Bayern Munich.

The player who joined Bayern Munich in 2013 has failed to make an impact at his current club and might be favorable to a return to Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund will be leaving for China for their pre-season preparation but are still active on the transfer market. The manager is keen to strengthen the team so as to be able to compete in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted that there are talks in progress between the two clubs, but they have yet to finalize a deal. The player currently has one year contract remaining with Bayern Munich, but he may be available for the right fee.

Hans-Joachim Watzke said that no agreement has been achieved so far and that they still have to talk with Bayern Munich’s representative as well as the player himself. He stated that it would be a great thing for Mario Gotze to return to Borussia Dortmund but at the moment there is nothing concrete.

Jurgen Klopp secured a credible 0-0 draw against Tottenham in his first match incharge

Jurgen Klopp secured a credible 0-0 draw against Tottenham in his first match incharge of Liverpool. There was plenty of his familiar touches during the game including the intense pressing in order to recover the ball. As the players get used to his way of training, the results are expected to get much better. He was the first choice to replace Brendan Rodgers after the Northern Irishman was sacked just before the last international break. SinceKlopp’s tactics are more or less similar to that of Rodgers and this is believed to have played a huge role in his appointment.

The arrival of Klopp has also made midfielder EmreCan extremely happy. Can knows Klopp reasonably well from his time in German football. The duo may share the same nationality but this is unlikely to help the players in terms of getting appearances on the pitch. He will have to earn his way into the first-team. After being signed by Rodgers last summer, Can has become an important member of the team. He did start the game against Tottenham and is likely to hold his place in the future games as well. Can says that the manager is someone who will certainly fit Liverpool in all forms.
