    Victor Moses reveals how Antonio Conte picked him out immediately

    Chelsea ace Victor Moses has revealed how Antonio Conte immediately picked him out as a future star.

    The Nigeria international had spent three seasons with the Blues before the Italian’s arrival, failing to make an impact and spending two of them out on loan.

    However, he has gone from strength to strength this time round, making the right wing-back position his own since the Blues’ switch to a 3-4-3 system.

    ‘Every manager is different. He came in and he saw something, he knew […]

    Premier League triumph went to Leicester’s heads, admits Ranieri

    Claudio Ranieri concedes that Leicester City’s stunning 2015-16 Premier League triumph has had an adverse effect on their current campaign.

    Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri believes the Foxes’ remarkable Premier League success last season has gone to his players’ heads.

    Ranieri’s side defied all the odds during a scarcely believable 2015-16 campaign which saw them romp to the title 10 points clear of runners-up Arsenal.

    But 2016-17 has been an altogether different story, Leicester languishing just two points above the relegation zone with […]

    Iheanacho boosted by encouragement from suspended Aguero

    Sergio Aguero’s words of encouragement are ringing in Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho’s ears as the 20-year-old prepares to fill the massive boots of the suspended Argentina international.

    Aguero was shown a straight red card in the stoppage time of City’s 3-1 Premier League defeat by Chelsea on Saturday.

    The expulsion was for a two-footed lunge on David Luiz and was later handed a four-batch domestic ban for violent conduct.

    “I have a responsibility to be the striker for the team, replacing Sergio […]

    Arsenal are willing to listen to offers for Mesut Ozil next summer, if he does not lower his huge wage demands, reports say.

    The Gunners are facing a nightmare scenario as Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will both have one year left on their contracts at the end of the season.

    Both players are demanding major wage increases, with figures as big as £20million-a-year being mentioned.

    Ferdinand: No Ozil and Sanchez, no silverware

    Rio Ferdinand has urged Arsenal to tie Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil down to new contracts if they have any ambitions of winning serious silverware in the future.

    The pair only have 18 months on their contracts at the Emirates Stadium and there is little sign of any imminent agreement between the club and players.

    Reports from over the last week have suggested that all the parties are too far apart in their valuations at the moment and the Gunners would have […]
