Chelsea boss updates on Reece James injury situation

Lampard confirms James injury concern


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has indicated that the club will make a late decision over the involvement of Reece James against Arsenal following his recent knee injury.

The England youth international sustained the damage during the backend of the league clash at Newcastle United last weekend, where the Blues suffered a shock 1-0 defeat.

Speaking in the press conference ahead of the Arsenal game, Lampard confirmed that James picked up an injury to the back of his knee and a late fitness test may determine his inclusion for the London derby.

“He’s got an injury to the back of his knee area. It’s not as bad as it could have been or we maybe thought so he’s in contention for tomorrow but it’s going to be a tight call,” he told.

Chelsea beat the Gunners with two late goals in the 2-1 triumph at the Emirates Stadium last month. They will be aiming for another victory to enhance their prospects of cementing a top-four spot in the Premier League.

Ibrahimovic set for Everton move?


Newly appointed manager Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that a move for Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be imminent this winter transfer window, as the forward, who is currently available as a free agent, suggests he would like to return to the Premier League.

Ibrahimovic famously had a spell with Manchester United under Jose Mourinho, but later departed England for a move to America with the LA Galaxy. Now he is out of contract, it is understood the Swede wants to return to the Premier League.

In an interview with the press, Ancelotti suggested a move for Ibrahimovic is on the radar:  “Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a good friend of mine. He was my player.

“Fortunately I have trained a lot of good, fantastic players. Ibrahimovic finished his period here at [Manchester] United and I don’t really know his idea.

“I have to call him. I am going to call him. If you want to come to Liverpool, to enjoy, he can come. But not to play!”

Ibrahimovic has hinted that a deal to return to England is more likely than a return to Italy, as he favours the footballing culture in the United Kingdom.

Jamie Carragher sends Arsenal warning to Liverpool boss

Carragher believes Arsenal can compete with Liverpool this weekend
Football Transfer Centre


Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has admitted that he is concerned with the high defensive line from the Reds as they prepare to host Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side are currently top of the table with the perfect tally of six points after the opening two games and this has only been replicated by the Gunners, who are just behind them on goal difference.

The Reds have had the better of the Gunners in the last three meetings at Anfield where they have beaten them 3-1, 4-0 and 5-1 respectively but Carragher anticipates a much challenging contest this time around.

While Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are bound to test the Gunners’ defensive resolve, Carragher is also concerned with the Reds’ high line against the pace and clinicalness of the Gunners’ attack.

Speaking on the Reds’ defensive shape, he told Sky Sports: “I don’t like it and I think they’ve been lucky and fortunate at different times this season to get away with it.”

The former England international added that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe are bound to offer a different challenge to the Reds backline, which has regularly sought to play the offside trap.

Celtic boss Lennon discuss Tierney to Arsenal transfer situation

Tierney to make Arsenal move next week?


Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed that the club are still waiting to hear back from Arsenal regarding a transfer for left-sided defender Kieran Tierney, who has been linked with a move to the North London club for a fee of £24 million. The Scotsman is comfortable playing on the left or centre of defence.

Arsenal have had a busy period in the transfer window, signing Nicolas Pepe for a club record fee and securing a deal for Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid.

Celtic are unhappy that their valuation has yet to have been met, but Arsenal are expected to seal a deal for the defender before the transfer window slams shut.

“Obviously the window in England shuts on Thursday,” said Celtic manager Lennon.

“It can be an unsettling period for any player. We have rejected two bids and the clubs know the valuation that we value Kieran [Tierney] at and it’s not been met.

“He is dealing with it very well. We are living in an age now where it’s coming at you from all angles, especially on social media.

“He is only 22. We have to be mindful of that as well. He is trying to keep his feet on the ground and stay focused on the present.”
