Arsenal want Patrick Vieira as next manager?

Vieira a leading candidate for the Arsenal job?


Arsenal have reportedly earmarked former captain Patrick Vieira as the leading candidate to succeed Unai Emery as the permanent manager.

The Gunners have lined up as many as 12 candidates for the head coach role and Mikel Arteta, Brendan Rodgers and Carlo Ancelotti are some of the leading names.

However, according to Nice-Matin, the north London giants are seriously looking at the prospect of recruiting Vieira, who has been managing Nice over the past 18 months.

Vieira has experienced mixed fortunes with the French outfit but the Gunners’ hierarchy believe that he has the leadership qualities and his presence could lift the team and fans alike.

Meanwhile, reports elsewhere suggest that Ancelotti could emerge as the leading candidate to replace Emery and the Gunners could land him without a compensation fee.

Ancelotti has endured a tough period with Napoli, who are lying seventh in the Serie A and reports have emerged that he could be sacked, if the club fail to beat Udinese on Saturday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer names one Manchester United star who is undroppable

Solskjaer praises McTominay’s display vs Spurs


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has heaped praise on midfielder Scott McTominay, who produced a dominant performance against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League last night.

The Scotland international made his comeback from an ankle injury to face Spurs and he produced a solid display in the centre of the park where he controlled the proceedings alongside Fred.

Speaking after the 2-1 win over Spurs, Solskjaer said that McTominay is almost undroppable at the moment and lauded the midfielder’s physical presence and leadership qualities.

“You can almost say he (McTominay) is undroppable at the moment. I wasn’t gonna try to push him through for this game. The physical presence he gives us, the leadership he gives us in midfield also releases Fred,” he told via Goal.com.

McTominay has featured in all but two Premier League games for the Red Devils this season and he has been regarded by many as the standout performer in the club’s midfield.

United have lacked the presence of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic through injuries in recent months but the midfield duo are likely to return to action in the next couple of weeks.

Lampard provides injury update on Tammy Abraham


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided a fresh update on the fitness of Tammy Abraham following the Blues’ 2-1 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League.

The England international missed the West Ham United game with a hip problem but he was able to make his comeback against the Villains on Wednesday night where he bagged the opening goal.

However, he was unable to complete the 90 minutes as he was substituted with a possible knee concern but Lampard has dismissed suggestions that he could miss the forthcoming league clash against Everton.

In a press conference covered by Football.London, he said: “It doesn’t seem too bad. Tammy at the moment is Tammy. A striker near the top, showing his all round game. A personality in the dressing room.”

Abraham has been the stand out performer for the Blues in the attack with 12 goals and four assists and he will be hoping to continue the good form on the trip to Merseyside this weekend.

Chelsea are reportedly confident that they can beat the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in the pursuit of Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.

The England international has been a consistent performer for the Bundesliga side over the past two years and he has already bagged seven goals and nine goals for the club this term.

Despite this, there has been a sense of uncertainty regarding the attacker’s future a the club with manager Lucien Favre recently criticising him in public for his attitude.

According to Goal.com, the Blues are eyeing a swoop for the former Manchester City graduate and they are prepared to break their transfer record with a £100m plus bid.

It is added that Sancho shares a close relationship with fellow compatriots Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi from the England youth ranks and the Blues are aiming to lure the teenager with the influence of the duo.

Chelsea have already served nearly half of their year-long transfer ban but they are increasingly positive of winning their appeal to sign new players next month.

Meanwhile, Dortmund have made the decision to keep hold of Sancho until the summer at the least and it remains to be seen whether their stance changes during the forthcoming transfer window.
