Conte did not humiliate United

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has stated that he did not humiliate Manchester United.


It is believed that Jose Mourinho had told the Chelsea boss after the match that his action has embarrassed his team and that he was not pleased with this behavior.

Antonio Conte said that this was not his intention and he only wanted to get the fans behind the team. He said that as a former player he knows how players feel on nights like these and that he will never do anything to humiliate an opposing team. He stated that he always respects opponents and that he is only a competitor on the field.

Chelsea beat Manchester United 4-0 in a match that saw Jose Mourinho returned to Chelsea after the club sacked him. Unfortunately, it does not work out for the Portuguese manager as his side concede a goal in the first minute of the game. Manchester United will not recover from going behind and will fail to take control of the match. Instead, they will concede another goal from Gary Cahill.

FABREGAS DEBUNKS EXIT RUMOUR

Spain international Cesc Fabregas has denied rumours making the rounds from even renowned sport news outlets that he was set to leave Stamford Bridge, Sky Sports say.


The reports claim that the Chelsea player was surplus to coach Antonio Conte’s requirements this term. Fabregas denied the story, claiming his immediate future is assured at Chelsea.

The former Barcelona play maker featured for his club when they played Bristol Rovers in the Football League Cup, but he has only played a game in the Premier League this season. In the game he played, he came on as a substitute against Watford. In the 3-0 comfortable victory over Burnley over the weekend, Conte didn’t seem it fit to add him to the squad when he needed to seal the victory as the opponents were threatening despite being two goals down. Fabregas remained an unused substitute, with Conte sending Pedro, Batshuayi, and Victor Moses to get the third goal.

After the Saturday win, the media was rife with reports that Fabregas had grown frustrated with his lack of playing time, and Conte had told him he could leave if he wanted. The reports were so believable that Fabregas had to take to popular social media platform Twitter to deny the allegations.
“Contrary to what has been written, the manager and I have a good relationship, and he has NEVER told me that I can leave,” Fabregas started in a series of tweets responding directly to the allegations.

CHELSEA ANNOUNCE SIGNING OF BATSHUAYI

English Premier League giant Chelsea FC have announced the signing of Michy Batshuayi from French club Marseille.

He got more chances in the next season and scored more goals.

CHELSEA BOSS SAYS BEING AT THE TOP IS CAUSING NERVES TO SPURS’ PLAYERS

Head coach at the Stamford Bridge, Guus Hiddink, says being at the zenith of the English Premier League for the first time is causing nerves to Tottenham players.

Spurs head to Stamford Bridge on Monday with their title hopes hanging by a thread, following a disappointing draw at home to less fancied West Brom this past week.


Leicester City remain ahead with eight points but Tottenham have three games to go. The Foxes dropped points during the recent the draw against Manchester United but Hiddink believes Spurs might not have the bottle to make up the ground.

“They are now experiencing being at the top. I’m not much into statistics, but it’s the first time in their history they’re now in the end competing for the Premier League title.

“In some players it might cause nerves. They might under-perform a bit. Leicester are fearless but some Spurs players might be affected by being on top and think ‘what now?’ Hiddink told reporters.

Willian says the Chelsea players don’t want Tottenham to win the league. Aside Willian, many others have said they preferred The Foxes to lift the EPL trophy after their stunning and consistent performance this season.

Chelsea wins at Aston Villa to keep European dreams alive

After a poor start to the season, Chelsea continued their recovery under GuusHiddink by thrashing Aston Villa 4-0 to maintain their hopes of clinching a European place alive.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek opens the scoring in the first half thanks to a deflected shot. Cesar Azpilicueta was gifted too much space by the Aston Villa to find  Loftus-Cheek whose shot deflected past JoleonLescott into the back of the net. Without too much effort, Chelsea found themselves leading.

Soon it was the debutant Alexandre Pato time to mark his first match in style by scoring on a penalty. Aly Cissokho made contact with Pato inside the box, and the referee awarded a penalty which the Brazilian converted with precision.

Chelsea lead 2-0 at halftime, and there was no sign of improvement from Aston Villa after the break. In fact, it was Chelsea who scored another goal after some sublime passing moves. After a quick break on the left, the ball arrived at the feet of Pedro, who buried it past the helpless Guzan.

It was all Chelsea after that with Aston Villa failing to take control of the game. Pato continued his impressive debut with a great shot on target only for Guzan to parry it. Pedro was the first one on the loose ball and did not miss the target even from a tight angle.
