Was Man City excluded from the League Cup because of the Covid 19 ?

Man City is in the danger of the Covid 19 where a lot of positive players had to remain in isolation, forcing the match to be postponed on the morning of December 29, and likely postponing the Chelsea and Manchester United games (M.U).

The match is expected to be delayed, and most notably, the Man City match against MU in Old Trafford in the semifinals of the League Cup

Both of these matches are actually facing a very strong likelihood of being delayed, after the key Man City squad is in danger of splitting the game with more stars that may be positive as the Premier League organisers press on to test the remaining number of teams.

Before that, Man City, after a 2-0 win over Newcastle, getting ready to play with Everton at Goodison Park, received news with around five more Covid-19 players after two previous players, Gabriel Jesus and Kyle Walker, got infected.

The source of infection for Man City players was reported from a hotel in London when they arrived at their home against Arsenal (won 4-1) in the League Cup quarter-finals at Emirates Stadium. 

These players, having been positive, are in quarantine for 10 days, but if there are more players sticking to Covid-19, Man City will not be able to play in the next 10 days. 

Not playing in the Premier League, the match will be postponed to another day, regardless of the calendar, but coach Pep Guardiola or Chelsea boss Lampard will have to consider it.

Although in the League Cup, the failure of Man City to play may cause them to be disqualified, as in the case of the Leyton Orient club being excluded in round 3 for the same reason (both Covid-19 team) and give way to Tottenham. 

However, luckily for Man City, since the previous round of the League Cup organisers, there has been a reform in the rule that, from the semi-finals, if there is a disease-related postponement, there will be a “reasonable effort” for Rearrange matches as soon as possible.

However, as the final of this season’s League Cup has already postponed the match date to April 25, Man City also expects to negotiate a rescheduling of the semi-final match with M.U. in case of a delay.

Chelsea is going to be surpassed by MU in the Premier League

A bitter 1-2 loss to Wolverhamton in the final minutes of injury time left Chelsea for the second time in a row in just four days and lost the opportunity to keep up with Tottenham’s top side. 

Coach Frank Lampard pointed out the underlying factor that contributed to the demise of The Blues”

After a 0-1 defeat last weekend, Chelsea managed to disappoint the lead, but let Wolverhampton come upstream and take a 1-2 loss to Molineux. 

With the second consecutive Premier League season, “The Blues” lost a great chance to catch up briefly with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool (25 points) before the two leading teams met at Anfield on the morning of 17 December.

Speaking in the Daily Mail after seeing Chelsea losing Wolves in Molineux, coach Frank Lampard (Chelsea) said: 

“ Since they have several fast attacks, the Wolves’ challenge undoubtedly arises from counter attacks. That’s what my players knew before the match. If you allow a team to play its strengths, you could lose the game.”

Chelsea is reportedly placed 5th in the Premier League standings after round 13 with 22 points. London’s blue shirt team will totally lose this place to West Ham, Paddy or MU (with the same 20 points) if one of the three teams wins this round. 

Everton is going to be a guest in Leicester City at 1:00 a.m. Tomorrow, the 17th of December. After two hours, West Ham is going to meet Crystal Palace. MU will march to the ground of Sheffield United’s bottom team to play at 3:00 a.m. on December 18 in the final match of round 13 of the Premier League. In the next round, Chelsea will head to Stamford Bridge’s home ground to welcome West Ham to the English capital’s derby at 3:00 a.m. to 10:12 p.m.

Neymar scored twice and PSG beat Man United

In the morning of 3-12, Neymar shone with a double goal to help PSG defeat Man United 3-1 in Old Trafford in the fifth game of the Group H Champions League 2020-2021.

This match, Host Man United just needs to draw to win the ticket, while PSG is forced to win to decide its own destiny. The defending runner-up couldn’t get any better off with a goal in the 6th minute.

Outside the box, star Kylian Mbappe fired a very powerful long shot that turned the ball on the defender of Man United, inadvertently turning into a Neymar clearing pass. In the face of goaltender David De Gea, Neymar cleverly finished the cross corner, opening the game.

At the minute 69, after the teammates failed a long shot, the ball hit Abdou Diallo (PSG). The Defender gives a pass to Captain Marquinhos, whom the Unified Man Defense has forgotten. Marquinhos’ possession was a little long, but the Brazilian middleman touched the ball and overcame De Gea’s charge, scoring 2-1 for PSG. 

Only one minute after conceding the second goal, Man United was still at a deficit when Fred was disqualified. He got his second yellow card after a poor battle with former teammate Ander Herrera. Earlier, in the 38th minute following a collision with Leandro Paredes, Fred got a yellow card.

Loss of troops, but Man United risked a high rise to find a target

And in that contest, the home team conceded the third goal. From a rather fast counterattack, Mbappe congratulated Rafinha for his escape. Rafinha had a precise cross to end Neymar, fixing a 3-1 win for PSG. 

Despite losing the match, Man United continued to lead Group H, led by PSG and Leipzig, seventh. Man United, PSG and Leipzig both have 9 points, but Man United is at the top due to a better head-to-head record.

In the last match, PSG just had to prevail over Istanbul Basaksehir to make sure it was going forward, regardless of the outcome of the Leipzig match against Man United. Meanwhile, Man United must have at least 1 point on German soil to reach round 16.

Barca declined to recruit Mbappe because of Dembele

In 2017, Barca had the opportunity to own Kylian Mbappe, but the squad gave up to hire Ousmane Dembele from Dortmund. 

Barca was able to hire Kylian Mbappe while he was still with AS Monaco in 2017. Bordas, a former member of Barca’s hierarchy, stated that Blaugrana would certainly have the French striker’s signature if he had paid 90 million. 

The team in Catalonia did not select Mbappe. Instead, they paid 124 million pounds to recruit Ousmane Dembele from Dortmund.

Mbappe preferred Barca because Neymar had just left,” Mr. Bordas quoted Mundo Deportivo.

Bordas also said that Monaco actively approached them because the principality team did not want to sell the pillars to PSG. The reason Barca selected Dembele was that they rated him as a player capable of coordinating with his teammates, while Mbappe was a striker used to work independently. 

After being rejected by Barca, Mbappe moved to PSG for a loan. In the summer of 2018, it was activated by the Paris football team with a purchasing clause of £108 million. 

Mbappe started to play impressively in the PSG jersey. He won the Ligue 1 title, and after 20 years of waiting, he became the mainstay to bring France to the World Cup. Mbappe is evaluated by many data sites, such as Transfermarkt, CIES, as the most valuable player in the world.

While Mbappe has risen to become a class celebrity and be loved by many people, Dembele’s career has not changed much

Dembele has a starting point not less than that of Mbappe. Yet the career of the player has been constantly hampered by injury. This season, former Dortmund stars are lucky enough to keep their feet safe, and coach Ronald Koeman offers them a chance to play very often. He has three goals, one assists in all competitions.

Nadal and the big opportunity to win the Masters of Paris

The inability of Novak Djokovic to play in the tournament, with favorable branch performances, opened up chances for Rafael Nadal to capture the first crown at the Paris Masters.

The odds for Nadal at the Paris Masters 2020 could be wider, since two other Grand Slam champions of the year, Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem, are not present. The fitness of “Rafa” this year is also perceived to be higher than any other year after a long break from the pandemic. The fact that Nadal won Roland Garros without missing a set confirms that. In addition , it is difficult to ignore the emotional enthusiasm that Nadal had after leveling the 20 Grand Slam record of rival Roger Federer.

Nadal is in the perfect spot to win the Paris Masters Cup for the first time

In preparation for the Paris Masters, Nadal spent a few days at the Balearic Golf Championship in his home town of Mallorca, ranking sixth. This is a tournament at which professional golfers are present.

Nadal is not only emotionally and physically strong at the Paris Masters. It also obtained positive branching outcomes. As number one seed, Nadal began playing in the second round against fellow countryman Feliciano Lopez, 39 years old this year. This is the opponent that Nadal dominated nine of the 13 matches. Lopez hasn’t been in decent condition this year, winning six games and losing nine games, slipping to ATP 64.

If he overtakes Lopez, Nadal didn’t have to battle challenging opponents at least in the semi-finals. The owners of 35 Masters titles will be able to face Borna Coric in the third round, 8th seed David Goffin or 9th seed Pablo Carreno-Busta in the quarter-finals. Difficulty comes only from the semi-finals where Nadal will play either Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev or Stan Wawrinka.

Messi stood out on the day Ronaldo was gone, and Barca comfortably won Juventus

In the second match of the Group E UEFA Champions League 2020/21, despite being played at home, Juventus proved to be totally behind Barca. Without Ronaldo, Messi was naturally the lead character of the summit. Even as Dembele helped open the game, the M10 scored directly at the end of the match.

Despite having dominated Italian football for almost a decade (9 straight Scudetto), Juventus was unable to carry home the third C1 / Champion League title in history. At this point, the greatest accomplishment of “Old Lady” is only the last two times (losing … Barca in 2015 and losing to Real Madrid in 2017). 

From Massimiliano Allegri to Maurizio Sarri, no one can help the squad to quench their hunger for titles in the most prestigious club-level arena on the continent. And now the team leaders have agreed to bet on coach Andrea Pirlo.

At the Barca summit tonight, Cristiano Ronaldo will already be in the crowd because he wasn’t out of Covid-19, but in Pirlo ‘s possession is Alvaro Morata, who won Barca in the 2014/15 Champions League final (unfortunately, Juventus lost 1-3 in the end) or Paulo Dybala, the striker who scored twice against the Catalunya giants in the 2016/17 Champions League quarter-finals. 0 after two matches)

Also, don’t forget that Juve had reached the Champions League Final twice before CR7 arrived. Since Ronaldo joined Juventus in 2018, it seems that “Old Lady” has more or less a disease depending on the Portuguese star, not a strong party, not relying on any person, like when Allegri was in the lead.

Anyway, Barca already has a total win, and Juventus has struggled to “live without Ronaldo” again

One day CR7 could not play, Juventus was absolutely deadlocked before Barca in the reconstruction process , despite using “tricks”.

Barcelona was sued by Messi and his teammates to arbitration, the club could be sold

Barcelona is in dire straits as players are taken to court over voluntary cuts in pay and at the same time face the unimaginable danger of being sold to private owners.

Barcelona may be off to a strong start to the season, but the backstage is a mess. The club ‘s leadership faces a vote of no confidence and, if that happens, President Josep Bartomeu and his colleagues will be fired because the club is poor in terms of results and financial difficulties. Over the years, the awful shortfall created by the Covid-19 outbreak has been combined with unreasonable spending.

Recently, however, the question of arbitration was discussed at the Nou Camp. According to the Spanish press, Barcelona is having a dispute with workers, including players, after they have planned to cut 30% of the salaries of all employees. Sources say that the plan is being finalized to be enforced in three weeks ‘ time, although it seems that Barca did so willingly without the approval of the other party.

Barca’s leadership declared a pay reduction a week ago, because it was important to rapidly solve the financial shortfall faced by the club. The release of the announcement without agreement with the employees ‘representatives and the players’ representatives has caused dissatisfaction, and the players are now requiring management to account directly with them.

Messi and the Barca players employ attorneys to sue Barca in court if their salaries are slashed

Previously, there was evidence that Barca players could willingly cancel their contracts if Barca had arbitrarily broken the terms of the deal, contributing to an unprecedented likelihood that Lionel Messi would still be allowed to resign. The squad has gone to Man City without being sued. However, in the event that the players win the lawsuit and compel Barca to comply with the deal, this would lead to an unimaginable event.

Tottenham is getting worried to match with MU round 4: Will Bale and Son Heung Min play?

Coach Jose5-007 recently had reports on Tottenham ‘s workforce condition in the run-up to the Great War with MU this weekend. After the launch of the Premier League 2020-2021, feelings of the match are becoming hotter. Spectators in the world are looking forward to seeing their performances through practicing hard for a long time. It’s time for them to demonstrate competency and playing techniques.

In a press conference before the final Europa League play-off against Maccabi Haifa,5-007 had valuable details about the physical position of Tottenham’s foundations, partially in the run-up to the great fight the Premier League in the fourth round. MU at Old Trafford this weekend.

In the case of rookie Gareth Bale, you reported that this player will not play against the MU on the weekend despite also having to begin the physical rehabilitation process. Moreover, they also did not need coach Ryan Giggs to summon Bale to Wales for the forthcoming international matches, including a friendly match with England. 

“Special guy” expressed his conviction that his England colleague Gareth Southgate will use Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Harry Winks fairly after Tottenham ‘s recent heavy playing time.

Bale will be able to play the first game for Tottenham in this revival when the Mossad plays West Ham at home in round 5 of the Premier League on October 17th.

In another development, Mourinho did not exclude Son Heung Min from the list to play against MU. The Korean star sustained a hamstring injury in the draw against Newcastle last weekend. Earlier, Mourinho said that Son Heung Min could only come back after the international series.

Son Heung Min  has five goals following five games played in all competitions

It also showed trust that Tottenham will have an extra striker to share the responsibility of scoring with Harry Kane before the summer transfer window closes early next week.

Bayern – Sevilla: Combat of the undefeated

Today’s European Super Cup 2020 teams have an unbeatable strip which lasted until Covid-19.

In official and unbattled matches, Bavaria has faced Seville twice

Bayern Munich is more or less nervous with the move over the summer transition period 2020. They still have a big contract named Leroy Sane from Man City, but three players with a lot of achievements have left: Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Perisic and Thiago Alcantara. Hansi Flick’s teachers and students are also asked about inspiration, something that can fade away after the 2019-2020 season.

But if you look closer, Coach Flick currently has three more players, Benjamin Pavard, Niklas Sule and Lucas Hernandez. Last season, this trio endured long-term injuries and did not make a major contribution to the road to the throne in Europe. Thanks to this old yet fresh notion, Bayern was stunned by its enemies.

Eight goals on Schalke ‘s net were a fine score, but Flick’s out-of-border approach made the crowd goosebump. Even as he saw the student continuing to make love with his opponent’s sin, the German teacher nevertheless shook his head with remorse, any time a delicious moment was lost. The drive is what Bayern now wants to reach the European Super Cup contest, before thinking about rebuilding Barca’s 16th season 2008-2009.

As many other super cup tournaments, the European Super Cup is also a venue for teams to test strategy and staff. In tournaments like these, the team with more focus will win. That’s why, in the 1990s and 2000s, the teams that won the Super Cup were always the side that won the UEFA Cup (the precursor to the Europa League). Sevilla, too, beat the mighty Barca in 2006 to lift the crown for the first time. However, this pattern has changed in recent years. The Champions League Title Team has won seven times in the last 10 super cup matches.

Launch of the Premier League 2020-2021

Never after 1.5 months of the last season has a new season been opened. No summer training trips, teams will practically race and line up and the Premier League 2020-2021 will be the most competitive and demanding season due to the packed scheduling (no winter break). When each year is supposed to be round 4, the end must be early (planned on 23-5) to make room for the Euro Final.

However, it’s going to be a very thrilling season. Never before was the title chase so open. Liverpool and Man City are both the top three, but will no longer be a two-horse race. Convinced of the success of the new 4-season team, billionaire Abramovich agreed to revive Chelsea. The Blues had the most thrilling trade season as they spent up to 210 million pounds taking in 7 rookies: Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva, Mbuyamba, Kai Havertz and soon goaltender Mendy. (The one from Rennes). In which the German Leverkusen mediator Kai Havertz for a sum of £ 90 million is the most lucrative deal in the history of the club and the Premier League (Paul Pogba’s previous record was £89 million). 

Coach Paddy did not hesitate to announce Chelsea’s target to be a championship

At the end of last season, with Fernandes, M.U of Solskjaer became the third proud man. This season, after the middleman Van de Beek from Ajax, is likely to come “blockbuster” Sancho, a winger from Dortmund and Brazilian defender Telles from Porto. 

Under Coach Arteta ‘s leadership, Arsenal is no longer frail but strong, stubborn, particularly in major games, such as beating Chelsea and Man City to take the throne in the FA Cup, and beating the champion twice in a row. Liverpool in the Premier League and the British Super Cup. This season, the Gunners have added Willian from Chelsea and Magalhaes from Lille. It’s also difficult to disregard Tottenham in the first season that coach Paddy began to plan from the outset. 

However, the “Big Six” above was also split last season by Leicester, Wolves and also Sheffield. Also this season, the rookie Leeds United was headed by “mad man” (El Loco) Bielsa, promising to be a “disruptor.”
