Reece James’ Champions League, Euro 2020 Medals Stolen

Published

on

Champions League and Euro 2020 medals belonging to Chelsea defender, Reece James, were stolen from his house on Tuesday evening.

The robbery took place during their Champions League group game against Zenit St Petersburg.

James featured prominently as the Blues were crowned champions of Europe last season, before helping England reach the Euro 2020 final, where they lost to Italy.

The 21-year-old confirmed the burglary on Instagram and posted CCTV footage of the burglary.

“I never keep any jewellery of mine in my house so all that was contained in the safe were my Champions League winners medal and Super Cup winners medal and the runners up medal for the Euro 2020,” he wrote.

James added that “the police, my advisers and Chelsea FC (and many others) are all behind me as we have firm leads on who the perpetrators are. We are closing in on them.”

Atletico Madrid, Liverpool Battle For Champions League Top Spot

Published

on

The top spot in the UEFA Champions League Group B will be up for grabs when Atletico Madrid welcome Liverpool to the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday.

Atletico Madrid have made a slightly slow start to their Champions League campaign, having been held to a draw by FC Porto in their opening fixture before leaving it late to beat AC Milan 2-1 last time out.

In La Liga, Los Rojiblancos have not been in full flow but remain among the top teams so far this term, although they did not play this past weekend after having their fixture postponed.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have been imperious in the Champions League to date, winning each of their two opening fixtures.

The Reds, in fact, remain the only unbeaten English team across all competitions and maintained such a start to 2021/22 this past weekend, cruising to a 5-0 win over Watford in the Premier League.

Atletico Madrid have happy memories of their last meetings with Liverpool, as they grabbed an aggregate 4-2 win in the Round of 16, back in the 2019/20 season.

Atletico Madrid
Probable Lineup (3-5-2): Oblak; Savic, Gimenez, Hermoso; Trippier, De Paul, Koke, Lemar, Carrasco; Griezmann, Suarez

Liverpool
Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Chelsea Manager Tuchel Risks FA Charge

Published

on

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is in risk of being charged by the FA over his comments after the win over Brentford on Saturday.

Tuchel was informed about a supporter-led petition demanding Taylor be removed from future Chelsea games following the 0-0 draw with Liverpool in August that saw Reece James sent off.

Asked about the petition, Tuchel said on Friday: “I trust in the referees and I trust in Anthony Taylor that he will try to have the best performance.

“Do we need a top referee? Yes. Do we need good decisions from VAR or maybe no decisions from VAR? Yes. Do we need a little bit of luck? Yes. And, hopefully, we can turn things around with Anthony Taylor.”

FA rules state that managers are not permitted to discuss officials before games.

However, given Tuchel’s impeccable record since joining Chelsea in January, the Evening Standard says it is more likely he will receive a warning rather than a more severe punishment.

Man City Place £67m Price Tag On Sterling Amid Barca Interest

Published

on

Premier League champions Manchester City have reportedly placed an £67million price tag on Raheem Sterling amid interest from Barcelona.

The LaLiga giants are desperate to improve their forward line either in the January window or next summer and have placed Sterling on their shortlist of potential targets.

As reported by Sportsmail last week, Sterling wants to remain at Man City but will consider his future at the Premier League champions if he continues to struggle for consistent games.

No player has ever appeared in more matches managed by Pep Guardiola at Man City, yet the 26-year-old has started only two league games since the opening weekend of the season after the £100m summer signing of Jack Grealish.

“I’m not a person that’s going to complain, I’ve not tried to make it a bigger deal than it actually is,” Sterling said earlier this month.

“I get on with my work, do what I need to do. And I’m just raring to go: playing football matches regularly, scoring goals regularly.

“At the end of the day, if football for me is not at a certain standard I’m not really at my happiest. If I want my happiness at a certain level I need to be playing football. I need to be scoring goals and enjoying myself.”

Sterling has 18 months remaining on his current contract at Man City but has opted against opening discussions over an extension until his short-term future is resolved.

Now, according to Spanish newspaper Marca, City have told any club interested in signing Sterling that they will have to pay £67m to get a deal done.

Barcelona’s need for a new winger is exacerbated by Ousmane Dembele’s contract situation – his deal is set to expire at the end of the season. The club could look to move him on in January for a cut price to avoid losing their £135million signing on a free transfer.

Recent reports in Spain have linked Barcelona with an initial loan move for Sterling because their financial woes mean they could not afford to pay a huge fee for the former Liverpool star at present.

The club are in financial ruin due to their debt, which stands at more than £1billion, which contributed to LaLiga slashing their wage bill to a maximum of £90m – equivalent to that of Watford – last month.
