Ex-Manager Blames Chelsea Duo For Poor Morata Form

Former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit has blamed the duo of Eden Hazard and Willian for the poor form being experienced by Spanish striker Alvaro Morata at the club.

The former Dutch international spoke about Chelsea and Alvaro Morata while he was on BeIN Sport.

According to him, Chelsea forwards Hazard and Willian prefer to cut inside and shoot rather than feed the lone striker (Morata).

Spanish international star Alvaro Morata was in the spotlight again after his anonymous performance in the Blues’ 2-2 draw at home to rivals Manchester United in their Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon.

The former Juventus and Real Madrid featured for 75 minutes before he was replaced by France World Cup winner Olivier Giroud.

He missed a big chance to double the Blues’ advantage in the early stages of the second half.

Chelsea had taken a first half lead through German international centre back Antonio Rudiger who produced a 21st minute bullet header off a cross from Brazilian winger Willian.

The miss from Morata came back to haunt him after the visitors turned the game around in the second half.

French striker Anthony Martial profited from some uncertain defending in the Chelsea box to equalise for Manchester United on 55 minutes before adding a second goal eighteen minutes later off an assist from Marcus Rashford.

Manchester United held on till the final minute of the extra time added at the end of 90 minutes before Chelsea substitute Ross Barkley broke Red Devils’ fans’ hearts and snatched a dramatic late equaliser for his side.

Arsenal legend makes a shocking claim about Ruben Loftus-Cheek

According to the Gunners legend, Ray Parlour in a recent shocking statement, he made it known that Chelsea midfielder and England international, Ruben Loftus-Cheek could leave Stamford Bridge.

The report although shocking has been taken with a pinch of salt from Chelsea fans, this is because Ray Parlour has no past and current link with Blues.

But Ray Parlour went on to say that if Ruben Loftus-Cheek wants to leave Chelsea, the Blues cannot stand in his way.

Parlour said, ” ’m sure the club won’t stand in their way if they say: ‘Look, we need to go and play’.”

The former Arsenal player might only be taking a guess about the Blues midfielder.

With the way Loftus-Cheek is playing for Chelsea at the moment, the tendency of his departure temporarily or permanently is very low.

However, since interest matters a lot in football, the only situation that can make Chelsea consider signing out Ruben Loftus-Cheek to another club will likely be if they get an offer that will be very beneficial to them.

But for now, there is no link between Ruben Loftus-Cheek and any other club and the Blues doesn’t have any in mind.

Bayern Hand Man United Huge Boost In Pursuit Of James Rodriguez

Five-time European giants Manchester United have been handed a huge boost over their long-term transfer target ahead of the upcoming transfer window scheduled to begin as from the 1st of January.

This is as a result of widespread media reports claiming that German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich won’t sign Colombian international playmaker James Rodriguez permanently at the end of his two-year loan deal with the club.

He was recently part of the Colombia squad that didn’t make it past the first knockout stage at this summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

The South Americans were knocked out by England via penalties in the round of 16.

James Rodriguez is currently a Bayern Munich player after he signed for the five-time European champions on a two-year loan deal from European champions Real Madrid.

He had a very good first season and that prompted talks of a permanent deal to the Allianz Arena.

That has however changed in the new season after he fell out with Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac.

The former AS Monaco and FC Porto player has questioned his lack of game time with Bayern Munich since the Croatian tactician took over in the summer.

Liverpool Fans Demand Jadon Sancho Transfer

Liverpool fans have demanded for manager Jurgen Klopp to splash the cash on young Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho ahead of the January transfer window.

According to footballfancast, Liverpool fans were impressed with the 18-year-old after he made his full debut for England in the international friendly victory over the United States of America at the Wembley Stadium on Thursday night.

Jadon Sancho didn’t score but he provided an assist for Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold to score the second goal for the Three Lions.

He was the best player on the pitch by a country mile as England defeated their opponents 3-0 courtesy goals from Manchester United star Jesse Lingard, the aforementioned Alexander-Arnold and Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

Sancho had earlier made his England debut in October during the goalless draw with surprise World Cup finalists Croatia in the UEFA Nations League.

The former Manchester City player recently signed a new contract with Borussia Dortmund but that has not stopped him from being linked with a transfer to several English sides with reports claiming that at least £100m will be required to sign him.

Premier League sides like Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been linked with the young forward.
