Liverpool waongeza uongozi wao kileleni baada ya kuinyuka Wolves

Bao la dakika za lala salama la Roberto Firminho liliwasaidi Liverpool kuwalaza Wolves mabao 2-1 na kuongeza uongozi wao kileleni mwa jedwali kwa alama 16.

Nahodha wa the Reds Jordan Henderson alianza kufunga kutoka kwa kona ya Trent Alexander-Arnold baada ya dakika nane lakini Wolves wakasawazisha dakika sita baada ya mapumziko wakati Raul Jimenez alipofunga.

Inter Milan wamemsajili wing’a wa Chelsea Victor Moses kwa mkopo kwa muda wa msimu uliosalia huku kukiwa na uwezekano wa mkataba wa kudumu. Raia huyo wa Nigeria alianza tajriba yake Crystal Palace na kuhamia Wigan kabla ya kujiunga na Chelsea mwaka 2012. Ameshinda ligi ya Uropa, Primia na kombe la FA na kuchezea Liverpool, Stoke na West Ham kwa mkopo.

Moses alijiunga na Fenerbahce kwa mkopo Januari mwaka 2019, akiwa hajachezea Chelsea tangu Oktoba 2018. Inter pia walimsajili Ashley Young kutoka Manchester United mapema mwezi huu.

Manchester United na Sporting Lisbon bado hawajakubaliana kuhusu uhamisho wa Bruno Fernandes. Zikiwa zimesalia siku nane kwa dirisha la uhamisho kufungwa, mkataba huo umekwama huku kukiwa hakuna majadiliano mapya yamepangwa.

Wiki iliyopita, United walikua wana matumaini ya kukubaliana mkataba kumnunua kiungo huyo wa kati wa umri wa miaka 25. Inadaiwa kuwa mkataba wa Fernandes unajumuisha kipengee kuhus ajenti wake ambacho ndio kinatatanisha.

Chelsea imetoa ofa ya kumsajili mshambuliaji wa Paris St-Germain na Uruguay Edinson Cavani, kwa mkopo, hadi mwisho wa msimu huu. Babake Cavani amesema nyota huyo atajiunga na Atletico Madrid ikiwa klabu hiyo ya Uhispania itaafikiana na PSG. Kwingineko Tottenham wanamlenga mshambuliaji wa Real Sociedad, Mbrazil Willian Jose na kiungo huyo wa miaka 28 anatarajiwa kusafiri London kwa mazungumzo.

Barcelona wamemuulizia Christian Eriksen kwa lengo la kumsajili kutoka Tottenham katika dirisha la uhamisho mwezi huu. Eriksen alikutana na mwenyekiti wa Tottenham Daniel Levy jumanne na kusisitiza kua anataka kujiunga na Inter Milan mwezi huu. Inter wanamng’ang’ania lakini sasa inaonekana kuwa Barcelona wameingia katika kinyang’anyiro cha saini yake.

Hata hivyo bado hakuna mktaba kati ya Tottenham na Inter kuhusu ada ya Eriksen.

Jukwaa liko tayari kwa tuzo za mwaka huu za SOYA zinazoandaliwa mjini Mombasa. Mshambulizi wa Harambee Stars Michael Olunga analenga kutwaa tuzo la mwanaspoti wa mwaka atakapokutana na Timothy Cheruiyot, Conseslus Kipruto, Geoffrey Kamworor na bingwa wa dunia wa Marathon Eliud Kipchoge.

Wakati huo huo Evelyne Okinyi anawania kujinyakulia tuzo la kinadada na atapambana na Hellen Obiri, Ruth Chepng’etich, Beatrice Chepkoech na Brigid Kosgei.

 

Nuno Espirito Santo apigiwa upato kuwa meneja wa Arsenal

Mourinho: Mashabiki wa Arsenal, Chelsea na United watoa hisia zao

Manchester City imeanzisha mazungumzo na mshambulizi Raheem Sterling kuhusu kandarasi mpya. Sterling alitia sahihi mkataba mwezi Novemba mwaka 2018 ambao unafaa kukamilika mwaka 2023, haja ya City ikiwa ni mustakabali wake.

Endapo kandarasi hiyo itatekelezwa, Raheem atakuwa miongoni mwa wachezaji wanaolipwa kitita kikubwa cha fedha kwenye ligi kuu ya uingereza.

Meneja wa Liverpool Jurgen Klopp hana wasiwasi wowote kuhusu hali ya Mohamed Salah ila itabidi Liverpool kuwa na subira kabla ya kuamua iwapo mshambulizi huyo atacheza dhidi ya Napoli.

Salah hakuruhusiwa uwanjani licha ya kuwa mchezaji wa akiba wakati Liverpool iliilima Crystal Palace mabao mawili kwa moja Jumamosi iliyopita, baada ya Klopp kudokeza kuwa jeraha la goti la mshambulizi huyo lilikuwa halijapona.

West Ham wanaangalia uwezekano wa kumchukua meneja wa Sheffield United Chris Wilder kama meneja wao, ikiwa wataamua kumfuta kazi meneja wao sasa Manuel Pellegrini.

Wolves maul Arsenal as Man City roar at Old Trafford

Manchester City yesterday moved back to the top of the English Premier League with a two nil win over City rivals Manchester United and remain in firm contention of the league title.

A defeat would have meant City are no longer in control of their destiny with Liverpool leading at the top. However after a slow first half, City came back after the break all fired up and scored two quick goals through Bernado Silva and Leroy Sane to condemn United to their second defeat in the league in less than a week.

City are now a point ahead of Liverpool with three games to go against Burnley, Leicester and Brighton. On the other hand, Liverpool will face Huddersfield, Newcastle and Wolves.

Elsewhere Arsenal’s poor form continued as they were trashed 3-1 by Wolves to further jeopardize their chances of finishing in top four.

The latest round of Champions League hot potato left Arsenal nursing severe scorch marks and Unai Emery surely wondering if his players actually want to finish in the top four.

After a weekend when Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal all missed opportunities to seize the initiative, Emery’s team were at it again at Molineux. They lost for a second time in four days and this time in truly chastening style.

Arsenal displayed some of their worst traits to prompt concern for the run-in, but Wolves deserve huge credit for once more leaving a big club bloodied and bruised.

Diogo Jota put the result beyond doubt by adding Wolves' third goal of the night against Arsenal at the end of the first half

Manchester United failed to move to third in the Premier League following a 2-1 loss to Wolves.

United took the lead via Scott McTominay’s 12th minute strike, but the hosts replied through Diogo Jota’s 24th minute effort.  United were reduced to 10 men after Ashley Young’s sending off, before Chris Smalling’s own goal gifted wolves victory.

United remain fifth on the table with 61 points same as Tottenham, and two behind third placed Arsenal. Meanwhile, Fulham were relegated after a 4-1 loss  away to Watford, they follow Huddersfield to the championship.

For the second time in 18 days, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer trudged down the touchline at Molineux and offered his congratulations to Nuno Espirito Santo. Same score line, same problems on another miserable night here for the Manchester United manager.

He had described the FA Cup defeat to Wolves last month as the worst performance under him, and there wasn’t a big enough improvement on Tuesday night to change the outcome.

Yes, United started well and created enough chances to win. They were also handicapped by the deserved sending-off of captain Ashley Young just before the hour mark.

But they conceded two calamitous goals and were in disarray by the end as Wolves threatened to overrun them again.

This was Solskjaer’s third defeat in four games, and the solitary victory in that sequence was a rather fortuitous one at home to Watford at the weekend.

Suddenly the problems that engulfed his predecessor Jose Mourinho have returned with a vengeance.

FA Cup: Liverpool dumped by Wolves As Arsenal set to host Man United in fourth round

Liverpool have been knocked out of the FA cup after losing 2-1 to Wolves in the third round.

Raul Jimenez opened the scoring for the Wolves in 38th minute before Divock Origi restored parity, six minutes after the break. However, Wolves had the final say thanks to Reuben Neves strike in 55th minute.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s will face Arsenal away in the FA Cup fourth round, with the boss aiming to win the competition for a third time.

Solskjaer was in the starting line-up for United’s semi-final victories over the Gunners in 1999 and 2004.

He went on to lift the trophy with the Old Trafford club on both occasions.

Monday night’s draw confirmed Arsenal as the home team.

It again recreates the classic match-up in the final 40 years ago which Arsenal won 3-2 thanks to Alan Sunderland’s late goal.

Other notable ties include two all-Premier League clashes — Crystal Palace against Tottenham and Manchester City versus Burnley.

Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea, who won the FA Cup under Antonio Conte last season, host either Championship Sheffield Wednesday or League One Luton Town.

Non-League Barnet, the lowest- ranked club left in the competition, were handed a home tie with Brentford.

Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham will face AFC Wimbledon, the League One side they beat 3-1 in the Carabao Cup third round in August.

That saw Pellegrini secure his first win as Hammers boss.

The winner of the replay between Newcastle and Blackburn takes on Watford at home.

Everton face a trip to London to play Millwall.
