JUVENTUS, LIKELY IVANOVIC’S NEXT DESINATION

Serbia international right back, Branislav Ivanovic might be heading to Juventus with his contract expiring by May.


The 32-year-old has been relegated to the bench following an abysmal run of form plus the emergence of Victor Moses on the right wing-back in the three-man defence at Chelsea.

Ivanovic has thus become a potential transfer target for Juve due to injuries to Dani Alves and Leonardo Bonnuci. Alves suffered a fractured tibia in the defeat to Genoa while Chelsea target, Bonucci has been ruled-out with a hamstring injury – leaving the Old Ladies short at the back. This has prompted Juve to look at relatively cheap targets to cover for the injured pair, with Ivanovic’s name understood to be high on their list.

But it is understood that Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte will be reluctant to let Ivanovic go without first signing a replacement, as the Serb still provides valuable cover at right-back and centre. Conte has 20-year-old Ola Aina in his squad and Cesar Azpilicueta on the right side of the back-line, but, with Chelsea fighting for the Premier League title, the coach will want to be sure of signing at least one new defender before allowing Ivanovic to leave.

KANTE UNDERRATED AT CHELSEA?

N’Golo Kante has been central in the Chelsea setup this term.


The diminutive French midfielder’s stats suggest that he is the reason for Leicester City’s Premier League swoop last season and the man behind Chelsea’s possible title win this campaign.

Kante played more games than the rest of the players whilst with the Foxes last season, only behind goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, captain Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton. He missed just one game last season for Leicester – their 2-2 draw against West Brom in March.

The player’s capabilities, hardwork and the improved confidence married the change in formation at Stamford Bridge to give birth to a dramatic turnaround for Chelsea. The Blues sit atop the league with a six-point margin. Defending champions Leicester place four points above the relegation zone without the powerless defensive machine. Continue reading →

Cesc Fabregas rocked the Premier League

The Spanish midfielder CescFabregas rocked the Premier League during the 1st half of the season but his influence in any team he joins starts to fade away in the final stages of the campaign no matter what club he performs in.

This is something that has affected Fabregas for a long time now as the performances that he made during the last phases of a season were worse in comparison to how he used to perform at the start of the campaign.

When Fabregas made his switch from Barcelona to Chelsea, the Spanish club announced a piece of information involving the midfielder which stated that even during his time playing at Camp Nou, the contributions he made to his team were significantly lower as the season progressed.

The official Barcelona website released a statement after Fabregas left Camp Nou which read: “Despite glowing starts to each campaign, Cesc’s contributions to the cause gradually decreased as each season drew to a close”.

The statistic prove that this curse which is surrounding Fabregas is indeed true as the Spanish midfielder had a passing accuracy of 89% during the first half of the season and it dropped to 82% meanwhile his amounts of shots per game dropped from 0.86 to 0.25. Continue reading →

BARCELONA ARE UNDERDOGS

Barcelona come into the last 16 second leg round against AC Milan trailing 2-0 from the first leg. As a result, they are the underdogs going into the encounter even though the match will be at the Camp Nou. The midfielder Cesc Fabregas is of the opinion that the Spanish club will be able to go through to the quarter-finals. Barcelona come into the encounter with several questions being asked about their form and defence. They kept their first clean sheet for more than 10 matches only during the weekend. The 2-0 victory over Deportivo la Coruna, though, was not the most convincing either. Continue reading →
