Chelsea and West HamUnited would brace up for the battle of the titans as action ensues at Stamford Bridge. It will be a frenetic encounter as both managers do battle on the pitch from the tactical point of view.

With the match looming between the two sides on Monday, much will be expected from the game, especially as other sides, await the outcome of this match.

And this would see much talking point making the rounds ahead of the clash as Chelsea takes on West Ham United in the Premier League.

Chelsea on the response

It will be a game of quality and character as the Blues would be saddled with the chance to redeem themselves on the occasion.

The visitors would be tough but the home side has got the quality to achieve the feat while they aim to move higher up in the table especially as Leicester City and Manchester United registered impressive wins against Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United at the weekend.

It remains to be seen if the Blues will give a positive response on the pitch ahead of this one.

Measure of Rivalry

The rivalry between these two sides would be interesting to see on the pitch as both sides test might against each other.

London sides are noted for their level of competitiveness in games like this and it wouldn’t be a surprise as we expect to see physical combat in the course of the game while VAR (Video Assistant Referee) would play its part in case controversial circumstances arise.

The Visitors Team Formation

The home side may not be in the best possible form or shape as the match is concerned but the fact that stars like Thiago Silva, Edouard Mendy and Mason Mount are available for this clash gives Chelsea at little a slim edge going into the fixtures.

And this awareness could see West Ham boss David Moyes restructure his side prior to their meeting against Chelsea.

How they line-up could influence their performance as well as the manager’s perception and interest in the game as we look forward to a scintillating night of football at Stamford Bridge.

LaLiga: Why David Luiz did not join Real Madrid after leaving Arsenal

Published

on

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, was keen to bring David Luiz to the club this summer, but the club never tabled an offer for the player, Globo reports.

Ancelotti is believed to have made contact with Luiz, who he worked together with at Chelsea.

The 34-year-old became a free agent this summer, having seen his contract with Arsenal expire at the end of June.

However, he has now returned to his native Brazil to sign with Flamengo, putting pen to paper on a 15-month contract.

It ended Luiz’s 15-year playing career in Europe.

But things would have been different if Madrid presented an offer for the experienced centre back.

The LaLiga giants allowed captain Sergio Ramos leave this summer, while Raphael Varane signed for Manchester United.

David Alaba arrived at the Bernabeu on a free transfer over the summer, but the La Liga giants are said to be determined to bring another centre-back to the club in 2022.

2022 WORLD CUP Salah Among Absentees as African Qualifying Resumes

Africa’s second round of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup is set to kick off with some notable absentees – Mohamed Salah, among them – after the refusal of British clubs to release players for various matches.

Premier League clubs have led the way in refusing permission for players to head to countries on the British government’s Covid red list, which would require 10 days of quarantine upon their return.

With Egypt one of 17 African countries on the red list, Liverpool superstar Salah will miss this week’s home match against Angola in Cairo but could play in Gabon, which is not on the list, next week.

Quarantine conditions meant he could have been one of several internationals to miss multiple games, said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

“As clubs we cannot do that – not only because we play games in that time, but because without being positive (for coronavirus) they lose 10 days of training,” he said.
