Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel did not ask the club to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder, Saul Niguez for him, according to Cadena SER.

 

 

Niguez was brought, in what many people saw as a surprise season-long loan from Atletico Madrid on the final day of the summer transfer window.

 

However, the Spain International has not been able to meet expectations at Stamford Bridge, making just five appearances for the west Londoners this season.

 

Spanish outlet, Cadena SER says that the Blues’ boss had not planned to sign Saul in the summer window and the move was done as a “favour” for the player’s representatives.

 

 

According to the report, Saul’s parent club, Atletico Madrid already knows that Thomas Tuchel’s side do not want to take up their option of making the loan deal permanent for £34 million next summer.

 

However, Saul still has the opportunity to convince Chelsea boss Tuchel that he is good enough to secure a regular role in the club.

 

But he faces even more competition in the Chelsea midfield following the impressive recent performances from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley.

 

The Spaniard only completed his first 90 minutes since moving to Stamford Bridge in the win over Southampton in the Carabao Cup last month.

  7. Thanks for the update Climaxtrend Former Manchester United striker, Michael Owen has predicted some of this weekend’s English Premier League, EPL, games.

    Chelsea will face Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at the King Power Stadium.

    Watford will host Manchester United in an away Premier League tie on Saturday.

    Liverpool will tackle Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening, while Man City will face Everton on Sunday at Etihad.

    Providing his predictions, Owen told BetVictor: “Thomas Tuchel was furious to drop points at home to Burnley last time out. The Blues were leading and cruising, but you are always vulnerable if you don’t get that crucial second goal. It is a big week for the club with games at home to Juventus and Man United to follow, so I am expecting a good performance here.

    “There is not much to separate these two, but I think Chelsea will narrowly edge it. I am going for 2-1 Chelsea.

    Commenting on the Watford vs Manchester United game, Owen said, “Watford have scored in just one of their four games under Ranieri and that 5-2 win against Everton is looking more and more like an anomaly. They are firmly in a tough run of fixtures, and I don’t see things getting any better.

    “I thought Man United were disappointing against City in the derby. There was no desire, no drive in the team and it was all so easy for City. United were far too cagey and looked way behind their rivals.

    “This is an ideal game for them, though. Watford are in poor form and are struggling to score. I can see a comfortable 2-0 United win.”

    Speaking on the Liverpool vs Arsenal match, Owen said, “This fixture has produced some classics down the years, could we see another here? The Reds followed up that draw against Brighton with a defeat against West Ham and Jurgen Klopp was understandably not happy. They’ve had some defensive issues in recent weeks and that will need sorting.

    “That is now three wins in a row for Arsenal and just one goal conceded in that time. This will be a major test of where they are, though.

    “I fancy Liverpool to get back to winning ways here. I can see Arsenal scoring, but I don’t trust their defence, 3-1 Liverpool.”

    Commenting on the Manchester City vs Everton, “City were very impressive in the derby win against Man United. They controlled the ball and the game, particularly in the last half an hour. I thought Kyle Walker was immense at the back, I don’t think there’s a better full-back pairing in the world than Cancelo and Walker currently.

    “Everton’s 0-0 draw against Spurs was uneventful. They had lost their last three, so it stops that run, at least. They have not won in the league since September, though and the pressure is beginning to build on Benitez.

    “It won’t get any better for them here. City are hitting their best form and I can’t see anything but a straightforward 3-0 win for the Citizens.”

  8. Former Manchester City defender, Micah Richards has said that Chile international Alexis Sanchez became a laughing stock at Manchester United.
    He said that Sanchez move from Arsenal to Manchester United made him ended up as a ‘laughing stock.’
    Sanchez moved to Arsenal from Barcelona in 2014 for a fee of around £35m and became a key player under Arsene Wenger.
    He scored 60 goals in 122 Premier League appearances, and also helped the Gunners win the FA Cup in 2015 and 2017 – scoring in both finals.
    However, expectations were high when he moved United in 2018 but he managed just three league goals in 32 appearances as his career nosedived.
    “He became a laughing stock at Manchester United,” former Manchester City defender Richards said on the BBC’s Top 10 podcast.
    “At Arsenal he was quality and he worked hard. He had skill and creativity. He was a go-to man.
    “It was sad when he went to United because I thought it was going to be a great move for him.”
