Why I need more games at United, Rashford



marcus rushford

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is seeking for more games as he believes it is key to improving his form.

Rashford is not satisfied with the playing time at Manchester United despite his current form and that has been the worry for the young lad.

Citing Liverpool defender Trent Alexander Arnold who has been a consistent starter at the Anfield as an example, the English player noted that if given same opportunity, he would be able to prove his worth.

Rashford believes he has got the talent but cannot be showcased without consistent playing.

The young lad has not been on the top list of manager Jose Mourinho who is not convinced to land Rashford a starting role at his struggling side.

United have continued to struggle with its strikers, Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez failing to deliver goals as expected but the Portuguese manager has decided to keep faith him them.

The Jose Mourinho team were relieved by the 3-2 win against Newcastle and are now billed to face Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge when the international break is over.

Should United fail to deliver once again, there could be fresh calls for the former Chelsea manager’s sack.

Suarez will replace Fabregas at Chelsea?



Denis Suarez

Stamford Bridge-based premier league giants Chelsea have been told that they can sign highly-rated Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez for a small transfer fee when the transfer window reopens in three weeks time.

According to The Daily Mirror, they report that the Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona have indicated their willingness to sell the Spanish international midfielder to Chelsea and other interested parties for just £15m
Other European sides like Arsenal, Valencia, and Napoli are also keen on a move for the 24-year-old.

Before now, reports have claimed that the player favours a move to the Gunners ahead of clubs like Valencia and Napoli who have been long-term admirers of the player.

He was very close to signing for Napoli twice while Maurizio Sarri was still the manager.

The Chelsea manager still retains an interest in him and he could be a direct replacement for compatriot Cesc Fabregas who could leave Chelsea when the January transfer market reopens.

Cesc Fabregas has been attracting strong interest from seven-time European champions AC Milan who are in desperate need of midfield reinforcements.

The former Arsenal man has just six months left on his present Chelsea contract but the Italians are not ready to wait till the summer.

They have also been credited with an interest in Denis Suarez but Cesc Fabregas represents a cheaper option for the Rossoneri.

Napoli Star Talks Up Sarri Reunion At Chelsea



Dries Mertens

Napoli forward Dries Mertens has revealed his desire to reunite with new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri at the end of his contract with the Italian Serie A giants.

Mertens is contracted to Napoli until the end of the 2019/20 season.

He spoke in glowing terms about Italian tactician Sarri in a chat with popular English media outlet The Times.

Dries Mertens went on to say that the idea of reuniting with the new Blues’ boss at the end of his Napoli contract is not a bad idea.

Maurizio Sarri became the Chelsea manager in the summer after putting pen to paper on a three-year contract.

The 59-year-old replaced compatriot Antonio Conte who lost his job after an underwhelming season which saw the Blues finish in a disappointing fifth place at the end of the Premier League campaign.

Maurizio Sarri has lifted the largely dull Chelsea spirits this season with the introduction of his possession-based style known as ‘Sarriball’ but he has had to suffer for a lack of consistent goalscoring strikers in the team.

Dries Mertens could be a very good option for Sarri and Chelsea.

The Belgian star has already scored 10 goals in addition to four assists for Napoli in all competitions this season.

From Roma’s reject to Liverpool’s legend, the story behind Alisson’s rise to stardom



Alisson Becker

Liverpool are through to the knockout stage of this season’s Champions League competition, thanks to Alisson Becker’s heroic displays against Napoli last night.

Prior to the encounter, the Reds needed a 1-0 victory over the Serie A giants to progress out of the group.

After many missed chances, the Merseyside outfits scored a very important goal via Mohammed Salah who had already missed a glorious opportunity to put the home side ahead in the first half of the encounter.

All of Liverpool’s efforts to double their lead were unproductive, instead, it was Napoli who came close to grabbing an all-important equalizer.

Arkadiusz Milik almost found the back of the net from close range, but Alisson Becker’s mighty hands were enough to prevent the former Ajax striker from sailing through to the bottom corner.

Alisson’s Journey to greatness

The 26-year-old goalie started his career in 2002 at the age of 10 when he joined Inter Milan’s academy.

The Brazilian progressed through the ranks until he made his first-team debut when he was 21 years old.

At first, he was a backup to Muriel but he began to feature more constantly with the Serie A giants as time goes on.

Alisson had 100 appearances for the Ammazurris in all competitions before he joined Roma.

Roma reject Alisson in 2015

Despite Juventus interest in his signature, the Brazilian international decided to join Roma in 2015 but the Serie A side rejected Alisson’s ‘come and get me’ plea.

Walter Sabatini who was Roma manager in 2015 failed to complete Roma’s move for the goalkeeper due to some crises related to EU qualification.

After one season, Alisson’s longtime dream eventually come true as he was signed by Roma in 2016. He went on to appear in just 37 matches after two seasons.

Liverpool opened the door of greatness to the goaltender

With just 37 matches, the goalie was able to capture Klopp’s attention with some important match-winning saves.

The Reds were in talks with Roma for his services but the Serie A side were reluctant to let go of their inspirational, first-choice goaltender

It took the Reds to break the world record before they could force Roma into sanctioning his move to Anfield. The Reds paid €72m for his signature during the summer transfer window.

Allison become Anfield’s newfound hero

The goalie’s rise to stardom happened within a short period of time, though, he passed through some career-threatening challenges and rejection.

His switch to the Anfield stadium was marred by the huge amount received by Roma on his signature.

However, the Reds are presently enjoying the services they are getting from the netminder. He has been wonderful at the back of the park since the start of this campaign.

At 26, Liverpool are yet to reap half of their reward for spending big on the Brazilian star, who has become a mainstay in Klopp’s starting lineup and even in the League.

It won’t be surprising if Alisson become the first Brazilian goalkeeper to win PFA goalkeeper of the season

Chelsea Defender On Arsenal Radar



gary cahill

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is said to be on the radar of North London giants Arsenal alongside Manchester United defender Eric Bailly ahead of the winter transfer window scheduled to start in 20 days time.

Cahill and Bailly have both seen their first team opportunities reduce at Chelsea and Manchester United respectively thereby prompting transfer rumours about their futures.

Gary Cahill was a regular in the Chelsea team under former manager Antonio Conte only for him to be relegated to the bench with the advent of new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.

For Eric Bailly, he has had to battle with injury woes at Manchester United in addition to various media reports which claimed that he has fallen out of favour with Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho.

Arsenal could be a good option for both players with the Gunners on the search for a defensive replacement for Rob Holding.

The young English defender suffered a serious knee injury against Manchester United on Wednesday and he has been ruled out of action for the next six to nine months as a result.

Recently retired England international Gary Cahill had earlier been linked with clubs like Aston Villa and Manchester United, while Ivorian centre-back Bailly has been the subject of transfer rumours for clubs like Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan.
