Chelsea Will Face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup Final

Yesterday, Chelsea played Tottenham in the second leg of the EFL Cup final. Tottenham had won the first leg 1-0, so it was up to the Blues to turn things around.

Kanté netted the first goal for Chelsea in the 27th minute. Hazard then put the Blues 2-0 up by half time. Sarri’s team were smooth-sailing.

However, a goal from Tottenham’s Llorente in the 50th minute put the scoreline on aggregate to 2-2. Penalties had to decide which team would be progressing to the final round.

After Eric Dier and Lucas Moura both missed a penalty for Spurs, the Blues were sent through to the final, winning the penalty shoot-out 4-2!

The absence of Kane and Dele Alli already seems to be having an impact on the Spurs squad. Their only feasible chance at a trophy this football season now seems to be the FA Cup.

Chelsea will play Manchester City in the EFL Cup final on Sunday 24th February. Without a doubt, it is going to be a very difficult match.


Liverpool: The Title is Not Up For Sale This Boxing Day

Liverpool have extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table after defeating Newcastle 4-0. Man City have failed to keep up with them, and it looks as if another team is looking to join the race in their place.

Liverpool continued their unbeaten run through their strong victory against Newcastle. Lovren netted the first goal in the 11th minute of the match. Then, within the first few minutes of the second half, Salah converted a penalty to double their lead.

Shaqiri made it three with his goal in the 79th minute and Fabinho made the final addition to the scoreline in 85th. Newcastle were out of their depth, this match was their tenth defeat this season.

Liverpool, however, are now on 51 points, six points clear of Tottenham and five points clear of Manchester City, who were shockingly defeated by Leicester City. Bernardo Silva gave City the lead in the 14th minute and, just five minutes later, Leicester equalised! It was in the last ten minutes of the game that Pereira netted the winner.

The defeat not only left Man City far from top spot on the table but it also allowed Tottenham to join the title race. Spurs have now passed City on the PL table after burying Bournemouth 5-0. Eriksen, Son (2), Lucas Moura and Kane were all goal-scorers.

Arsenal failed to get closer to fallen City after drawing 1-1 with Brighton. In fact, they are now two points below fourth-place Chelsea. Thanks to Hazard, the Blues overcame a confident Watford, winning their match 2-1.

Liverpool almost seem comfortable at the top of the table. However, it is clear that Tottenham are trying to go beyond the race for top four to compete for Liverpool’s top spot!

Is Top Four Out of Reach for Manchester Unied

Liverpool defeated Manchester United 3-1 to go to the top of the Premier League table once again. However, this pushed United even further away from a Champions League position.

Mané gave Liverpool the lead in the 24th minute. Lingard managed to equalise for United in the 33rd, but this did not last long.

Klopp’s team overwhelmed Mourinho’s with their intensity and momentum. In the second half, Shaqiri netted two goals to secure a win for the Reds!

United are still eight points below Arsenal, who woefully lost 3-2 against Southampton. Every time Southampton scored, Mkhitaryan scored an equaliser, but he could not do the same for the last goal.

United are also now 11 points below fourth-place Chelsea, who defeated Brighton 2-1 with goals from Hazard and Pedro.

Only a game separates United from 11th place Bournemouth. Right now, they have a greater chance of finishing in the bottom half of the table than finishing in the top four.

Tight at the Top

After a great performance by the top Premier League clubs last weekend, the race for the Premier League title has become even more intense. Although many might still think the race is still only between Manchester City and Liverpool, the table does not present that picture.

Manchester City went up against Liverpool in a tough battle to be top of the PL table. However, the game ended without a goal being scored by either side. As Chelsea defeated Southampton 3-0,with goals from Hazard, Barkley and Morata, they are now joint at the top of the table on 20 points with Manchester City and Liverpool!

Arsenal, who had a rough start to the season, are now just two points below these three teams. This is due to an astonishing 5-1 victory over Fulham, with goals from Lacazette, Ramsey and Aubameyang.

Tottenham are also on the same points as Arsenal, having won their match against Cardiff. Even they stand a chance at top four and are well in reach of the Premier League title.

Manchester United are the only top team that are not in the race at this time. Mourinho has come under a lot of criticism. Luckily, his team managed to come back from being 2-0 down against Newcastle to winning the match 3-2. This sort of turnaround shows that there is still hope for United.

At this stage, it would be best to keep an open-mind. Of course City could go on to win the title again, but their competitors are stronger this season! It will not be an easy ride.

Closer than ever

The race for the Premier League title has become more intensified. Some top teams have been dropping points; while others have been gaining.

Chelsea had to face off against Liverpool, a team who had gone unbeaten in the Premier League up until this match. Hazard was quick to give the Blues the lead in the 25th minute.

However, they were unable to hold on to it. Sturridge eventually equalised for Liverpool in the 89th minute! Although Liverpool did not lose the match, they dropped points for the first time.

They allowed Manchester City to catch up to them on the table. Manchester City joined Liverpool on 19 points after defeating Brighton 2-0, with goals from Sterling and Agüero.

Arsenal also managed to defeat Watford 2-0, after being given the lead through an own goal. They are now only four points off the top of the table.

Even Tottenham is in the top four after Kane netted two goals against Huddersfield. The only top team not in the race at the moment is Manchester United.

Manchester United have 10 points and are sitting at 10th place on the Premier League table after losing 3-1 to West Ham! It has been a terrible start to the season for Mourinho’s team.

This Premier League season will clearly not be easy. For this reason, the race for the title will be very exciting and very rewarding.

Football League Triumphs for the London Clubs

Both Arsenal and Chelsea won their English Football League match. Chelsea’s win proved even more triumphant as they had to face off against Liverpool.

Arsenal destroyed Brentford 3-1 in the third round of the Carabao cup. The first goal was scored by Welbeck in the 5th minute. He also went on to score the second.

Judge managed to claim a goal back for the oppostion. However, this was overshadowed by Arsenal’s final goal, which Lacazette netted in extra time.

Sturridge expectedly gave Liverpool the lead in the 58th minute. However, this did not phase Chelsea, who made a stunning comeback.

Emerson netted the equaliser for the Blues in the 79th minute and Hazard scored the late winner in the 89th. This was a shocking turnaround, which every Blues’ fan would rejoice over.

Arsenal and Chelsea are now into the fourth round of the EFL Cup. Although, the Blues should not take a breath yet; they have to face Liverpool again in the Premier League this weekend.

The Race Has Begun

Both Liverpool and Chelsea are on 12 points after playing four Premier League matches. The race for the title is well and truly under way.

Liverpool defeated Leicester City 1-2 away from home to claim top spot on the Premier League table. Leicester had more possession and more shots at goal. However, it was the Reds that claimed all three points at the end of the match. How brutal!

The Blues also won their match, defeating Bournemouth 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. The Chelsea fans were overjoyed, having been forced to wait until late in the second half for Pedro and Hazard to net in goals for the team.

The only thing that separates Liverpool and Chelsea is their goal difference; Liverpool have a goal difference of 8, while Chelsea have a goal difference of 7! It is very tight at the top of the table. The competition is heating up!

Hanging By a Thread

There’s no denying the fact that Mourinho is in a shaky position after his continuous defeats in the Premier League. His Chelsea squad have now gone on to be shamed in the League Cup, by Stoke. Plus, it can’t be great knowing that their next game will be without Diego Costa, who is now out with injury.

In the 52nd minute, Walters gave Stoke the lead! The Blues had begun to gulp at the feeling of more misfortune until Remy changed it all. Remy equalised for his team in the 90th minute, taking the match through added time and into penalties!

 The penalty shootout was very intense as every ball was finding itself at the back of the net. That was until it came up to the fifth Chelsea kick. Hazard, who had previously fallen out with Mourinho, delivered quite a soft penalty that was caught by the Stoke goalkeeper! Chelsea were out! Misery was upon them once more.

No one knows when Chelsea’s woes will come to an end. Perhaps, if they lose to Liverpool on the weekend and Mourinho gets the sack, things will change. But have the Chelsea players stopped playing for their manager? Mourinho’s job could be in the hands of his players.

Title Thrills

Chelsea have been top of the table for as long as anyone can remember. But the Premier League trophy was never officially theirs. Their game against Crystal Palace changed that.

Chelsea have many brilliant players on their squad. A powerful team it is indeed. However, one man has stood out the most and he made his name known once again.


The goal that won the match and the goal that won the title came from no other than Eden Hazard! He has taken many chances this season and in this match he took the golden opportunity to please all of Stamford Bridge!

The season is not over yet, but the result for one special club is already known. Mourinho has led Chelsea to Premier League victory with three games left to spare!

Blue wonders

Chelsea have beaten team after team to get closer to the Premier League cup. They have now done it against Manchester United and their confidence has rocketed as high as their chances!

 There was only one crucial goal in the game. Hazard was the one to score it in the 38th minute.


Chelsea have finally played their game in hand and they’ve taken all they can from it! They’re 10 points clear at the top of the table and it’so very hard to see a team catching up to them.

 Manchester United, however, remain in third position. They might not win the title this year, but they have definately made a substantial improvement from last season.

There are only six games left for the team’s this season. Who succeeds and who fails…we are yet to know.
