Alonso strikes late to secure Chelsea victory against Slavia Prague | Football

This ended up a timely reminder of the resilience, and ruthlessness, Chelsea can still command on this stage. A tie that might have veered away from them, particularly while they laboured to contain Slavia Prague’s urgent intent, was claimed late on by a marauding full-back, breaking late into the box to meet an inviting centre. That, at the very least, was an indication of this team’s underlying ambition. Marcos Alonso has not been himself since the onset of winter so it was reassuring to see him galloping untracked…

Man Utd fans rate Kalidou Koulibaly display for Napoli at Arsenal

Manchester United may not have been in action on Thursday evening but some of their fans were still fixated on Napoli's Europa League clash at Arsenal. Not that they wanted to see Arsenal cruise to a 2-0 victory at the Emirates but because transfer target Kalidou Koulibaly was in action. Koulibaly has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford this summer and many United fans took the opportunity to analyse the defender's performance in the quarter-final first leg. It's safe to say it wasn't the 27-year-old's greatest…

Ramsey sparkles as Arsenal sink Napoli

London (AFP) – Arsenal took a significant step towards the Europa League semi-finals as Aaron Ramsey inspired a 2-0 win over Napoli in the quarter-final first leg on Thursday. Unai Emery’s side seized control of the tie with a dominant first-half performance at the Emirates Stadium. Ramsey opened the scoring with a cool finish to cap a flowing move and the Gunners were further ahead before half-time when Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly deflected Lucas Torreira’s shot into his own net. Arsenal couldn’t add to the lead…

F365 Says: Arsenal find bitter-sweet winning formula

Date published: Thursday 11th April 2019 9:45 So typical of Arsenal it is to follow up one of their worst performances of the season, away at Everton, with one of their most complete displays to outclass Italy’s second-best side. And, classic Arsenal, Unai Emery appears to have found a winning formula just too late to yield the potential rewards. Against Napoli in the tie of the Europa League quarter-finals, the third-favourites opened up a two-goal advantage over the…

The second half was more of the same with the home team dictating play while Maurizio Sarri’s men tried to threaten on the

Paul Watson urges Dundee United to make sure of second place

Paul Watson will never forget Falkirk falling flat on their faces in the 2016 play-off final, so is urging Dundee United not to run out of steam like the Bairns did.

Falkirk had taken a hard-earned 1-0 lead from the home tie into the return leg at Rugby Park only for it to go horribly wrong, with Killie winning 4-0.Watson, 28, has told Robbie

Talking Numbers: A Deeper Dive Into Man United’s Loss To Barcelona

Manchester United lost their first leg match against Barcelona in UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. It was 1-0 for the Spanish side in a match where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could see some positives, although, he could also see why this team is limited when it comes to results across a full season and why spending is necessary this summer in order to mount a real challenge on any of the trophies.

Aaron Ramsey midfield quality shows Arsenal what they will be missing | Ed Aarons | Football

You get what you pay for, as the old saying goes. And on this evidence, Aaron Ramsey is worth every penny of the reported £400,000 a week he will receive as a Juventus player over the next four years. More than a few eyebrows were raised in February when it was announced the Wales international would be moving to Serie A in the summer after running down his contract yet against one of Italy’s most respected sides, Ramsey delivered a performance which underlined just how good he can be. Since the deal was confirmed, he…

Prague (AFP) – Marcos Alonso’s 86th-minute header gave Chelsea the edge over hard-working Slavia Prague with a 1-0 win in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final in the Czech capital on Thursday.

Willian himself came close to scoring on 25 minutes but slammed his right-footed effort onto the crossbar.  Maurizio Sarri made seven changes from Monday’s 2-0 Premier League…
