French national team manager Didier Deschamps has fuelled transfer rumours linking Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to Juventus by claiming that Old Lady fans have the right to dream about re-signing the 25-year-old.

Deschamps spoke about Paul Pogba and a potential return to Juventus in an interview with Italian news outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport adding that the Italian Serie A champions have the capacity to sign Pogba if they can pull off a sensational move for Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo during the last transfer window in the summer.

Ronaldo swapped Real Madrid for Juventus after the latter agreed to pay a whopping fee of €100m for his services and Deschamps is of the opinion that his former club will have to pay more to sign Pogba.

Didier Deschamps won the Champions League with Juventus in 1996 before returning to manage the Old Lady between 2006 and 2007.

Deschamps and Pogba played a huge role as France won a second World Cup title in Russia this summer by beating Croatia 4-2 in the final.

Pogba was one of the goalscorers for the French team.

His return to Manchester United has been dominated by his feud with manager Jose Mourinho and that has prompted talks of a move away from Old Trafford with clubs like Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Barcelona and Juventus.

There are suggestions that Chelsea out-of-favour midfielder Danny Drinkwater will be leaving the Stamford Bridge this winter transfer window on a loan move.

This is after the former Leicester City star got missing in the Jurgen Klopp’s team without playing time.

It was earlier suggested that the former Premier League champion will be leaving the West London side alongside Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas who is now with the French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco.

Danny Drinkwater who helped the Foxes win the English Premier League title in 2016 immediately joined the West London side only to become a bench player and he is reported to be keen on leaving the club to secure a playing time elsewhere.

Indications are that the Blues are not willing to part ways with the star player which is the reason why they may be forced to give him out on loan with a number of Premier League sides already indicating interest.

Fulham are reported to be in the lead for the recruitment of Danny Drinkwater on a loan deal as they hope to add more strength to their squad through to the end of the season.

In order to make the deal work through, Fulham are reportedly ready to send Timothy Fosu-Mensah back to his parent club Manchester United to create the space for Danny Drinkwater.

Why we lost to Arsenal, Sarri

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has given a hint on why his side suffered a humiliating 2-0 defeat in the hands of the North London outfit Arsenal on Saturday evening

The West London side were not only defeated but were outplayed by Arsenal which is the reason why the Italian boss lashes out on the players as he puts the blame on them.

It has been an inconsistent performance by the West London side since their defeat to Tottenham which ended their 18 games unbeaten run and that has to be corrected by the former Napoli manager.

However, he stated that he lost because some of the players in his team seem difficult to motivate as he noted that he had made efforts to do that after their defeat to the other North London side Tottenham but that has not worked yet with the defeat.

Meanwhile, the Blues boss is ready to take a part of the blame because his side failed to show up completely against the Gunners team.

However, the game between both sides have been reduced to three points which leave the race for a top-four finish very open and more competitive especially with United coming from behind.

Arsenal 2 : 0 Chelsea – Three talking points from the game

arsenal

The Gunners returned to winning ways as they thrashed Chelsea 2-0 to the Emirates stadium in one of Saturday’s Premier League game.

The Blues had defeated Arsenal in Emery’s first game of the season, Maurizio Sarri’s side narrowly overcame the Gunners’ challenge 2-1 at Stamford Bridge last year.

However, yesterday’s game was totally different from the previous fixture in August 2018 as the North London club dominated the Blues for the most part of the game.

Emery’s men deservedly took the lead in the 14th minute when Lacazette powered a beautiful shot past Kepa Arrizabalaga who was busy all through the clash.

The home side doubled their lead after 25 minutes when Laurent Koscielny scored with his shoulder.

The Blues were made to chase the game before half time and they couldn’t find the back of the net throughout the mouthwatering and entertaining game.

Here are the top three talking points from the game.

There’s more to Ozil’s omission than Emery’s ‘tactical reason’

It has been long I saw Ozil play a full match. It’s either he was subbed out or he was subbed in by Emery.

In fact, it’s been a while he featured in Arsenal kit and Emery keeps providing ‘tactical reasons’ for the player’s regular omission.

In a game that’s as classic as Saturday’s fixture, every Arsenal fans would expect the German star to be in the starting lineup so as to create more chances with his creativity.

But the former Real Madrid playmaker was surprisingly left out of the starting XI which further suggested that there are off-field crises between the player and the Spanish tactician.

Arsenal vs Chelsea – Three talking points

Published

Alexander Lacazette

The Blues were defeated by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, thanks to goals from Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny.

However, here are the concluding part of the top three talking points that emerged during the encounter.

Morata’s switch to Madrid is imminent after another omission

Alvaro Morata’s move away from Stamford Bridge dominated transfer podcasts during the week as it is believed he could be heading back to La Liga later in the month.

Many rumour mongers revealed Maurizio Sarri has reached an agreement with AC Milan for Gonzalo Higuain who will serve as Morata’s short-term replacement for the rest of the campaign.

Despite being in top and perfect condition prior to Saturday’s fixture, Sarri decided to leave the striker out of his travelling squad which means the Spaniard is partially out of Stamford Bridge.

Next week will decide whether the 26-year-old is set for Atletico Madrid’s move or not.

Unai Emery’s substitutions must improve

Emery’s substitution has left so much to be desired since the start of the season and Saturday wasn’t exempted.

The Spanish manager surprisingly subbed out lively Alexandre Lacazette for Alex Iwobi in the 67th minute, a decision that didn’t go well with the Gunners fans who voiced their displeasure against the ex-Sevilla manager.

Lacazette scored the first goal of the night and he troubled the Blues defence throughout the day, he deserves to full-time action.

Saturday wasn’t Aubameyang’s day as he was quiet all through the night. The Gabonese ought to have been taken off for Iwobi, not Lacazette.

Irrespective of the Result, Arsenal remain in the fifth position with 44 points but they are now three points behind Chelsea in the race for Champions League spot next season
