The Blues will also be hoping to add another 3 points to the points they already have as they take on Bournemouth this afternoon at Stamford Bridge.

Should the Blues defeat Bournemouth, they will move higher on the EPL table and close the gap between them and other EPL trophy contenders like Man City and Liverpool.

Despite all the games Chelsea have played so far, ex Napoli coach, Sarri Maurizio have been quite lucky as he doesn’t have many players injured.

The only two Chelsea players on injury are Cesc Fabregas and Marco van Ginkel.

Recent report have disclosed that Fabregas will resume back to Stamford Bridge after the international holiday on September 15 after suffering a leg injury.

The Spaniard midfield had played for the Blues in the preseason.

Super Eagles

About three European clubs expressed their delight in seeing the Super Eagles thrash Libya by 4-0 in the 2019 African Nations Cup Qualifiers on Saturday.

Former Watford striker Odion Ighalo had extended his goalscoring form in the Chinese League to the national team with his sweet performance as he saw the back of the net three times, making it the first hattrick of his career.

The game was a delight to clubs including Arsenal, Chelsea and Bordeaux who all monitored the game that was played at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo and they took to their social media platforms to hail their players and the win.

For the Stamford Bridge, they were glad Ola Aina made it from the bench to contribute to the big win by the Nigerian side.

Also, Arsenal could not hold it from celebrating the Naija boy who had his club side form extended to the Gernot Rohr team by giving an assist in the game.

Arsenal on their twitter handle stated that Iwobi set up Odion Ighalo for his second goal with an inch-perfect through pass.

It was same for Bordeaux who monitored Samuel Kanu’s performance and had it on record.

However, the clubs expect to see another good performance when the team converge to face same Libya in the return leg this week.

UEFA Nations League: Southgate makes case for clubs, players

Published

Southgate

The UEFA Nations League has been ongoing since the commencement of the international break and it has not been an easy one for players who have got just a little time to rest.

England national team coach Gareth Southgate is one of those who will hit out on the Premier League for rushing to begin the league without giving necessary conditions to players who were at the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Southgate who spoke ahead of his side’s Nations League game against Spain noted that clubs are placed in an impossible situation where they have to field players who have not rested to achieve results.

According to the England boss it was wrong for the Premier League to have started on August 10; just 27 days after his side were eliminated by Belgium in the World Cup.

Citing Tottenham as an example, Southgate said many of their players reached the semi-finals of the World Cup and had no rest until the league started, pointing it as the reason why they have failed to give their best performance.

The situation becomes more difficult for players as they have to return back to their various countries for the UEFA competition without enough rest for them to have.

Southgate is the second after Liverpool manager to have made such a claim, with the German manager arguing that the Nations League should be scrapped to allow players to refresh before they return back to their various clubs.

Cristiano Biraghi

The Uefa Nations League between Italy and Poland took place last night with the Italian national squad been quite wasteful in terms of scoring goals despite their top performance.

Italy had two strikes in the first half that hit the bar, one of the strikes was from Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, who played the ball from the box area.

However, Italy managed to have their first win since the commencement of the Uefa Nations League and also their first win since Roberto Mancini became the coach of the National team in May.

Cristiano Biraghi gave the Italian squad a late win by scoring a goal in last few minutes to the end of the match.

This latest development has seen Poland relegated from the Uefa Nations League.

Poland, Ukraine, and Italy are in the same group with Portugal, who are the leader of the group and are tipped to move to the semi-finals.

Portugal have six points from two matches while Italy has 4 points from three matches.

Robert Mancini, who is on a mission to rebuild the Italian national squad following failure to make it to the 2018 world cup in Russia said, Italy dominated the match and ”should have scored earlier and it would have been very unfair if the game had finished 0-0.”

UEFA Nations League: How Spain Plan England’s Fall

spain vs england

England will be travelling to Spain today (Monday) with the majority of their Premier League players for the return leg of the UEFA Nations League.

Luis Enrique will hope to keep his pride by not losing at home hence, he is expected to field his strongest team against their English visitors.

Familiar to English Team, David de Gea favours a start ahead of new Chelsea recruit Kepa Arrizabalaga in the goal post.

Also, Chelsea duo, Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta should get the nod in the full-back positions. The latter will take the place in the absence of Dani Carvajal who is injured.

This remains an advantage to the Spanish team knowing the two fullbacks are familiar with the English attack.

Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata would have been a good pick for Enrique but the player’s bad form will keep him on the bench at the beginning of the game while former Liverpool flop Lago Aspas who was interesting to watch in the first leg at Wenbley favours a start instead.

In the midfield, Thiago, Saul Niguez and Rodrigo are expected to start as Spain could have a similar look to the one at Wembley.

The Spanish national team now top the group with 5 points above England and Croatia.
