Chelsea V Man City

London Bridge has fallen as Man City beat Chelsea at home - RESULT: 1 - 3

Manchester City were too good for Chelsea as Pep Guardiola’s Cityzens defeated Frank Lampard and his Blues side 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in a one-sided affair on Sunday night.

 

Manchester City scored the opening goal in the 18th minute with a lovely low drive shot from Ilkay Gundogan just outside the box. Phil Foden, who provided the assist for the first goal then made it 2-0 in the 21st minute. In the 34th minute, Raheem Sterling took the entire Chelsea defense apart before his shot hit the woodwork, and Kevin de Bruyne scored from the rebound. Callum Hudson-Odoi pulled one back for the Blues in the 92nd minute, but it was too late to start a comeback.

 

 

some of the Blues fans are now calling for the sack of manager Franck Lampard, as Chelsea have dropped to 8th on the log with 26 points in 17 games. Manchester City, on the other hand, moved up to 5th on the log, with 2 games in hand.

 

Do you think Chelsea will sack Lampard?

Real Madrid V Celta Vigo

Real Madrid too good for Celta as the Blancos win in style - RESULT: 2 - 0

Real Madrid continue with their impressive run of form, as the defending La Liga champions scored 2 goals in each half to beat Celta Vigo at the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium.

 

Real Madrid scored the opening goal early in the game after Lucas Vazquez headed home a beautiful cross from Marco Asensio in the 6th minute. The Blancos then made it 2-0 in the 53rd minute as Vazquez gave a wonderful assist to Asensio, who blasted the ball past the keeper in the 18-yard box.

 

 

Real Madrid remain second on the log, two points behind leaders, Atletico Madrid, who have played two games less. Celta Vigo, on the other hand, dropped to 8th on the La Liga table with 23 points in 17 matches.

 

Do you think Real Madrid can defend the La Liga title?

Is Lionel Messi finished in Barcelona?

Six-time Ballon d'Or winner, Lionel Messi has endured a poor start in what may be his last season at Barcelona. With his stats this season, My11 looks at the Argentine's stats for the 2020/2021 season. 

 

After enduring a trophyless 2019/2020 campaign, Barcelona have not started the new season well, and some fans are attributing it to Messi's transfer saga.

 

The 33-year-old has featured for the Catalan giants 18 times this season (14 in La Liga), and he has scored 10 goals in all competitions (7 in the league) and 5 of his 10 goals were from the penalty spot.

 

Messi is arguably the greatest Barcelona player of all time, but since the transfer saga last summer, the little magician has dropped his level of performance. While some are saying age has affected his form, others are saying "Messi is finished".

 

Do you think Messi is finished?

Match of the Week

Chelsea V Man City

Chelsea v Manchester City 03/01/2021 17:30
MY11 SAY 1-2

After fears of COVID-19 in the Manchester City camp, Pep Guardiola’s team are now fully ready and they will be traveling to London to face Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

 

In 46 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Chelsea have won 26 games, while Manchester City have won 13 matches, with the other 7 games ending in a draw. Their last 5 encounters have ended in home wins for the hosts.

 

Chelsea will be without Reece James, Hakim Ziyech, and Marco van Ginkel due to injury. Manchester City, on the other hand, will be without Ilkay Gündogan and Eric García due to injury, while Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus will miss out after a positive COVID-19 test.

 

Frank Lampard’s charge are on a poor run of form, with just 1 win in their last 5 matches, and fans are now complaining about their tactics of the gaffer, but the Cityzens look to be hitting their form steadily, with brilliant defensive resilience. This looks like a match Pep Guardiola’s men will edge after 90 minutes.

Match of the Week

Real Madrid V Celta Vigo

Real Madrid v Celta Vigo 02/01/2021 21:00
MY11 SAY 3-1

Real Madrid dropped points for the first time in 6 games following a one-all draw away to Elche but will hope to bounce back as they will be welcoming in form Celta Vigo to the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium on Saturday.

 

In the last La Liga meetings between these two teams, Real Madrid have won 15 games, while Celta Vigo have won just 2 matches, with the other 2 games ending in a draw. The Blancos have scored at least 2 goals in each of their last 8 clashes with Celta.

 

Real Madrid will be without young Brazilian, Rodrygo Goes, who picked up an injury against Granada. Celta Vigo, on the Other hand, will be without David Junca, Kevin Vazquez, and Sergio Alvarez due to injury.

 

Both teams have a similar run of form, having won 6 games and drawn 1 match in their last 7 games in all competitions, but the Real Madrid have better quality, but Celta captain, Iago Aspas, can break through any defense, and he will be a terror for Zidane’s team. The defending champions should do enough to nick this encounter.

 

You can catch the game live on DSTV channel 204, SuperSport La Liga on Saturday, January 2 2021, by 9 pm Naija time.

Saka's goal for Arsenal against Chelsea a fluke?

Nigerian-born forward, Bukayo Saka scored a spectacular goal for Arsenal in their 3-1 win over Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium, but the goal has stirred up debate on social media. 

 

Saka chipped the goalkeeper from the right side of the box, and after the match, the Gunners forward said he saw the keeper off the line and decided to chip him.

 

After the match, Saka tweeted and said "saw him off his line". While some fans agreed with him, many said it was a fluke. 

 

Saka's Three Lions teammate, Jack Grealish disagreed with him, calling him q liar (meaning he believes it was a fluke). The Aston Villa captain said: "ur to funny man! Liar".

 

Do you think it was a fluke or not?

Sevilla V Villarreal

Chukwueze unable to help Villarreal as Sevilla picked up a deserved win - RESULT: 2 - 0

Naija Super Eagles forward, Samuel Chukwueze came on as a second-half substitute, but he could do nothing as Sevilla defeated Villarreal 2-0 at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan on Tuesday night.

 

Sevilla scored the first goal early in the game after Marcos Acuña’s shot was handled in the 18-yard box by Juan Foyth, and Lucas Ocampos scored the resulting penalty in the 8th minute. The Argentine then became a provider, after sending a defense splitting pass to Youssef En-Nesyri, and the Moroccan coolly finished past the keeper. Chukwueze’s late attempt to score for the Yellow Submarine was well saved by Sevilla goalie, Bono.

 

 

Sevilla have now moved above Villarreal into the fourth position on the log with 26 points in 14 games, while the Yellow Submarine dropped to fifth on the La Liga table, with 26 points in 16 matches.
