Ex-Premier League Manager Berates Chelsea For This Reason

Former Premier League manager Harry Redknapp has slammed Chelsea for the tactics they employed during their London Derby win over Crystal Palace in their Premier League clash on Sunday.

The Blues hosted Crystal Palace at the Stamford Bridge and had to dig deep in the second half to secure a 3-1 win over their opponents.

Speaking after the game, former Bournemouth and Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp berated the Blues for using dark arts especially in the second Chelsea goal scored by Alvaro Morata.

Redknapp gave his post-match reaction while he was a pundit on popular English TV channel Sky Sports.

According to him, Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso employed dark arts in the buildup to the goal scored by Alvaro Morata with the game delicately poised at 1-1.

Harry Redknapp, who managed clubs like Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, revealed that the Spanish international left-back intentionally blocked the path of Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho as substitute Eden Hazard’s freekick found its way to Morata for him to score his second goal of the game on 65 minutes.

Morata’s first half opener had earlier been cancelled by a 53rd minute strike from Andros Townsend.

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.

He will reunite with Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge having managed him at Italian Serie A side Napoli for one season (2015/16).

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.

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.
