The Premier League Rule Change

Research shows the percentage of changes made in the 90th minute and beyond rising – from 21.3% in 2011/12 to 24.3% since 2017/18 – and now the International FA Board (IFAB) are considering adjusting the rules in a bid to prevent stop time-wasting.

According to the Times, some members of IFAB believe that almost every injury time substitute is a time-wasting tactic, with suggestions any player who is substitute has to leave the field via the nearest touchline, rather than the one where the dugout is situated.

The report states the proposals will be discussed at next month in preparation for IFAB’s annual meeting in March.

“Looking at ways to cut down on time-wasting, speed up the game and increase playing time is one of our priorities,” one member of the IFAB board said.

“A rule to say there should be no substitutions during added-on time is an interesting one and could work well. Referees add on 30 seconds for a substitution but in practice it can eat up a lot more time than that. There would, however, need to be trials to see if there are any unforeseen ramifications.

“Would it be fair, for example, if a player suffered a broken leg in injury time and couldn’t be replaced? But you already have the case where they couldn’t be replaced anyway if the three substitutes had already been used.”

Two further rule changes also being looked into is allowing goal kicks to be passed to players in their own penalty area to allow quicker play, and for referees not pull play back if a ball is not still for a free kick.

Signed, sealed and delivered!!! Chelsea striker moves back to Spain

If recent reports coming out of Spain are anything to go by, Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is on the verge of joining Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid.

According to Spanish media outlet, Cadena Cope, they claim that the former Real Madrid and Juventus star has already signed a contract with Atletico Madrid and that an official announcement is expected soon.

The Spaniard Spanish has been deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge following the imminent arrival of Gonzalo Higuain.

The Argentine striker Higuain has agreed to join Chelsea on loan from Italian champions Juventus for the remainder of this season with the option to make his transfer permanent at the end of the season.

The former Napoli man has terminated his loan contract at AC Milan following his desire to link up with Sarri at Chelsea.

He joined seven-time European champions AC Milan on a season-long deal from rivals Juventus at the start of the season but the player has decided to cut short his loan spell at the San Siro at the halfway stage.

Gonzalo Higuain scored eight goals for the Rossoneri including six goal in his first seven games for AC Milan.

Chelsea join race to sign Manchester United target

According to reports from teamtalk, they have revealed that Manchester United and Chelsea are both interested in signing Bristol City starlet, Antoine Semenyo during this January window.

The youngster has been impressing out on loan at Newport County this season and his displays have seen scouts queuing to watch him in action.

With six goals in the kitty this season for the Exiles, the 19 year old is thought to be valued at £2m with the Premier League giants plotting their moves.

Raised in London, 19-year-old Antoine Semenyo moved to Bristol in order to attend SGS, a college based in Filton.

Loans manager Brian Tinnion and head of recruitment Damien Butt were impressed by the then-17-year old, and after a brief trial period with the Robins, he put pen to paper in September of last year, signing a two-year deal.

In his first appearance for City, Semenyo bagged two goals as they ran out 7-2 victors in an under-18s fixture against Hull City.

Why Barcelona are making move for Chelsea ill-performing player

The Spanish side, Barcelona have reportedly made moves to sign Chelsea ill-performing striker, Olivier Giroud.

A report has made it known that the world cup winner wants to leave Chelsea FC as he battles with limited playing chances in the Blues squad.

Lately, Maurizio Sarri has resolved to start Eden Hazard as a false nine in recent matches while Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are left to watch from the dugout.

It is bizarre to however see that the Catalans are interested in signing Giroud, who is out of place at Stamford Bridge.

But it seems to be a rather wise move from the coach, Ernesto Valverde, who will be keen to bolster his attacking options following the departure of Paco Alcacer.

Also, Olivier Giroud is a cheaper option for the Catalans as compared to Neymar Jr, who Barcelona wanted to resign from Paris Saint Germain.

It is however unsure if Chelsea will allow the France international leave in January considering the fact that they have agreed on a loan deal for Alvaro Morata to leave for Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona will have to wait till the summer to be able to pull the move.
