There are two new managers at these two famous old clubs, and two new ways of playing and yet in the end of one of the season’s early classics, the decisive influence was the magnificent Eden Hazard, coming off the bench and as good as ever. Chelsea’s No 10 played only the last 30 minutes of this game, brought on after Arsenal had fought their way back from two goals down and with the game delicately poised it was the best player in either squad who delivered the great moment of quality. The third Chelsea goal, scored by Marcos Alonso and enough for Maurizio Sarri’s team’s second win in two, was made by the twinkling feet of Hazard. There was much for Unai Emery to be encouraged by in this Arsenal performance, having seen his team fall two behind in 20 minutes, they responded well with goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi and another afternoon that suggested Matteo Guendouzi will be a fine player. The 19-year-old passed the ball forward relentlessly and … [Read more...] about Eden Hazard proves the difference as Chelsea overcome Arsenal resurgence in five-goal thriller

Allan McGregor - 9 Made a brilliant stop from an outrageous Dervisevic free kick in the 36th minute and an incredible, point-blank save with his leg from Maribor dangerman Tavares as the game wore on. Topped it all off with a stunning last minute penalty save. A calming presence in front of the defence that could turn out to be Steven Gerrard 's most important signing. Outstanding. James Tavernier - 7 Was unfortunate that his delicious 33rd minute cross for Morelos found the striker in a narrowly offside positon. Defended with discipline and on the rare occason he was able to break forward, did so with his usual gusto. Andy Halliday - 7 Was targeted early on but stood up to the pressure and showed the trademark Halliday passion and determination. Was rarely exposed and looked comfortable. Safe to say that with Barisic and Flanagan soon to return he's not going to spend a lot of time at left-back but can be delighted with his nights work. Connor Goldson - 7 The big stopper has … [Read more...] about Rangers players rated as Nikola Katic proves his worth against Maribor

Scoring starts 6:30pm on Wednesday >> England vs India, first T20: live scoreboard Swaggering batting and mystery spin delivered the Old Trafford crowd what most of them craved: an emphatic India win to start their two-month tour of England with such style that it invited the question of what glories may lie ahead. How India will hope for days to come as delightful as this, a gentle cruise in the radiant sunshine. They were so imperious they scarcely even had need for Virat Kohli to bat - though he still had time to seal this crushing victory with a six. Instead, this drubbing was authored by two stars of the last Indian Premier League. First, Kuldeep Yadav, the seventh-highest wicket-taker of the 2018 season, flummoxed England with beguiling left-arm wrist spin; they could no more decipher his googly than Russian code. In India’s reply, Shikhar Dhawan … [Read more...] about England’s winning white-ball run brought a juddering halt at Old Trafford as India storm to victory
Ryan Sessesgnon’s coming of age has been a sight to behold – for both Fulham fans and neutrals alike. After making the headlines in his first year as a senior at the Cottage, this season has been confirmation of the youngster’s ever-growing talents: 46 appearances, 16 goals, seven assists and an average of 1.6 chances per game to his name. ‘Up-and-coming’ no more, Sessegnon has announced himself in style and now stands as one of the hottest prospects in English football.

When recently asked what makes the youngster so special, captain Tom Cairney replied immediately: “It’s his mentality. It’s a one-off.” This attitude is reflected in his style of play. Driven, tenacious and selfless, … [Read more...] about Ryan Sessegnon scout report: Fulham youngster shows why he should snub Tottenham and Liverpool interest
