Chelsea v Manchester United - Predictions

chelsea, manchester, predictions, mourinho, conte, pogba, ibrahimovic, david luiz, cahill, diego costa, hazard,


That's Conte against Mourinho: but this time we are not in Italy, we are in the Premier League.
Chelsea is in a particulare situation: the team is among the most noble of the league with a competitive organic.
Certainly Chelsea still must to do a lot of work.
That's a particular attitude of Antonio Conte: a great motivational coach among the best of the world.
Chelsea lost two important matches: Arsenal and Liverpool.
It's time to cut with the past and move directly to the top of the table.
Probably line-up
Chelsea (3-4-3): Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Matic, Marcos Alonso; Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard

Manchester United 

For United on the other hand there has been a dangerous decline with a real steep fall in terms of results.
After victories in the first three Premier League days came two defeats, one draw and one win,
Pogba, Ibrahimovic and friends are not making the  supposed difference by Mourinho.
Manchester Utd won just one game in their last five league outings, and it is a fact that worries the environment objectively.
The hand of the Special One to date 'it is not seen much, but the performance in the Europa League gave definitely a nice confidence with a top Pogba.
Probably line-up
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Blind; Herrera, Fellaini; Rashford, Pogba, Young, Ibrahimovic


Chelsea v Manchester United it's a tipical triple challenge match.
Chelsea won the last two league games, with Hull City and Leicester but United is remaining the favourite.
These are the 5 reasons for our predictions:
1) Chelsea team does not seem to be united after the situation about Diego Costa and Antonio Conte.
2) It's the first time that Mourinho challenge "his" Chelsea as an opponent and it will leave a mark.
3) Rarely career the Special One does not prepare well tactically and mentally the big match of the English Premier League
4) Mourinho knows EPL better than Conte
5) United seems to be in a better form

Inter Milan consider to sack manager De Boer

According to Sky Sport Italia, Inter Milan owner Erick Thohir said to decide next 6 Inter Milan matches.

It will included both Serie A and Europa League games.

After the last defeat against Cagliari on Sunday, the future of Frank De Boer is really suspended in the air.

Inter Milan and De Boer are considering to part ways following the slow start of the season.

De Boer interview

Inter Milan manager Frank De Boer said to move forward "We must play better, want to win against any opponent. I am building a strong team but we need to have patience".

Coach De Boer is looking for patience and said “Roma and Napoli have their style of football and do not change it. We cannolt change our approach even against Juventus"

Frank de Boer does not feel on fire

Inter Milan coach De Boer on the eve of the Europa League match against Southampton, issued a brief interview through Sky Sports.

"Some people give me up for dead? I'm very much alive, with a lot of energy to improve the situation," the words of the Dutch coach to Sky Sports.

About Marcelo Brozović said: "He will definitely be available for the match tomorrow night. He's fine and has been training positively. He also played with the national team, it is ready . Tomorrow we will see".

The case of Icardi Inter was just one of the problems to solve: the team is going through a difficult period.

Five defeats in league and cup have a route plan sufficient to impeach anyone, including Frank De Boer living a tough week.

Inter v Southampton: De Boer last chance

Today at San Siro back in the Europa League there is an important match against Southampton.

The Nerazzurri must absolutely win after the two k.o. against Hapoel and Sparta Prague.

The Suning Group attaches great importance on the cup, has set important awards and wants to get to the bottom.

"A defeat, with consequent elimination from the cup - said the italian newspapaer Corriere della Sera - did not immediately cost you the place but would push it towards the classic last chance"

Sunday in the championship Inter Milan are waiting in Bergamo for a match against Atalanta.

In four days the Dutch coach will write his next future.

The Dutch coach is now getting to know the pressures of Italian football.

Totti: new record upcoming

totti, roma, record, bandiera, 100 partite internazionali, spalletti,

Spalletti: "Totti will play his international match number 100"

On the eve of the match against Austria Vienna the Roma coach Luciano Spalletti announced the presence in the field of the captain Totti.

Totti: the leader

Francesco Totti is an authentic flag.

He is th only one Italian flag football still in business.

His name is Francis, family name is Totti, is the number ten of Rome and plays with the giallorossi from 24 years.

Totti took the first team in 1993, after three years in the academy.

He made his debut in Serie A on March 28, the game was Brescia-Roma and Roma coach was Vujadin Boškov.

Everyone is aware of that kid that eventually grows under the protective wings of Carletto Mazzone, almost a father on the turf (and not only) for Francesco Totti.

They are the first few years of a long career that showcase all his genius.

The consecration came with the advent of Zeman on the Giallorossi bench.

Five years.

It took five years to make a young Francesco Totti a real flag of Rome.

In 2001 comes the first peak of his career: the Giallorossi back to win a championship (the third in their history) and the absolute protagonist is always him (along with two Montella and Batistuta bomber).

Follow glorious years for the team and its captain, two Italian Cups, one Super Cup and in 2007 Totti has won the Golden Boot, the title that is absolute mile marker of Europe.

The years post-Calciopoli see Roma duel with Inter on all fronts, but they are also the years of the great setbacks in Europe.

Totti is always there, never gives up: no way in front of the great offers of the top clubs of the continent.

Francesco probably, indeed certainly, far from Rome would win a lot, maybe even a Golden Ball, but he is a symbol and he said no to leave.

The giallorossi  jersey is his second skin, even in the darkest moments.

The years pass, the coaches changed, but Totti but is always there.

And then there's the National Team. With the Azzurri jersey wins a second place in the European Championship in 2000 in Belgium. Follow the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004.

In 2006 won the World Cup in  Germany: an extraordinary career but poor of club successes.

Totti genius: the penalty in the World Cup of Germany against Australia at the 93rd, overtime goal scored in 2005 in 'San Siro' against Inter with a lob from distance judged by many as the best goal of his career.

Francesco Totti goal in Serie A has signed a lot of goals and still has a season (and who knows if it's only a) to take the lead again. Totti can not like everyone, but it is undoubtedly the last flag of the Italian football.

Spalletti about Roma v Wien  

The coach wants the win against Austria Vienna in EL and about the captain said, "With me he scored 99 goals and tomorrow will be his 100 match in Europe"

After success on Naples, the Roma coach does not want to see steps backward, especially in terms of mental attitude.

"If you have done a good win you already feel a little 'quiet and satisfied means that you have no character and then everything becomes more difficult," said Spalletti, sending a message to Totti and others.

"Now do not go back. It starts by evidence that we did at the San Paolo. We are now on the right track and we want to go straight. "

"Austria Wienn is a team not easy to deal with, but we have absolutely no need to search for another win. I am convinced that we will make a good performance. My players have seen them with the right eyes."

As for the training choices, Spalletti has anticipated some owner eleven names that will take the field against the Austrian team. Alisson will play with Gerson and Totti in midfield and in attack,

Spalletti said "Francesco with me on the bench has made 99 goals, if he makes another touches share 100 and I want this in a particular way, it would be a huge satisfaction. and then tomorrow is also its 100 / per game in the international arena (including Champions League and Europe League matches).

About the line-up there will be many absences: De Rossi, Vermaelen and Rüdiger not yet ready. Manolas doubtful with an annoyance, Strootman "to evaluate, but hardly ready to play 90 '' as Perotti and Peres.

The choices seem to be obliged: "Gerson will play Totti as well, and will be his hundredth in Europe and I hope he does well the goal with me".
