Have you known the biggest change of Chelsea in the last 1 year?

The west London team took it a step further in developing a way to control the ball, under coach Frank Lampard.


In fact, Chelsea has never been people who like to embrace the ball from Jose Mourinho until after Antonio Conte left last summer. But the arrival of Maurizio Sarri has brought a new breath in the comprehensive change of the face of the champions of the Europa League.

The first and most typical example is the move to recruit passing king Jorginho from SSC Napoli. The Brazilian-born star, though unable to own any assists for his team-mates last season, has clearly turned them into a very different team than they were in the past.

With 25070 passes, this statistic of Chelsea is only a bit less than that of Man City (leading, with 26581) in the last season, but is far superior to the previous seasons (2017/18 – 21264, ranked 5th; 2016/17 – 20125, ranked 6th; 2015/16 – 19664, ranked 5th; 2014/15 – 20268, ranked 4) …

However, (last season) many people still criticized the very play we call “Sarri-ball”, opposing Sarri and Jorginho because the Blues passed so many in the middle of the field to the point of being boring. But now, Chelsea has changed although the nature of control remains the same with Lampard!

To explain the improvement of Lampard, we will need to mention two things:

First: Chelsea’s defensive quartet has created a clear arc of passes. Almost every match they rotate the ball a lot, although the center is still Jorginho. The best example to prove this point of view should be taken from a match in the Champions League instead of the Premier League.

In fact, up to three-quarters of the people behind Jorginho in terms of passing in the Premier League this season are frontline players. Mateo Kovacic’s appearance was simply that Emerson and Marcos Alonso had to take turns on the left, when unable to maintain their position due to injury.

The same thing happened last season, but Jorginho outperformed. While this season, although he still leads in the ability to pass the ball, the biggest difference is not just passing the ball, the factors that will clearly show Lampard’s keenness to turn the young squad into imposing play prime!

2

Secondly, compared to the previous season, Jorginho played more risky than receiving 4 yellow cards after 8 rounds (last season was only 8 after 37 matches), passing the ball was less accurate (86% compared to 89%) but the chance of having a table with ten goals is more (3 compared to 6), the percentage of successful slots is higher (approximately 1 time compared to 0.7 times).

And yet, nearly every statistics on the defense of Jorginho is also good as breaking the ball, tackling, relief, dispute in the air, … things that not many people appreciate about the former star. Napoli. In fact, he himself described his evolution by saying “I have more freedom”.

Jorginho said (according to Football Planet): “I have more freedom. After four years with the same coach (Sarri), it is clear that a change will bring new ideas. In the past, everything was just to keep a balance for our play.”

The player who was dubbed the “passer-king” also pointed out a bit of a tactical difference under Lampard: “He wants me to move upwards, without making too many short passes. We are using more long ball situations. The players are moving more, and there are fewer short passes. Everything is changing, but the core idea is the same, it’s pressing pressing. and try to control the game”.

From the above statistics and statements, we can partly understand that Chelsea is taking another step in the way of controlling play. It will take more time to confirm whether Lampard will succeed or not (the title), but at the very least, he is making the team more attractive, more passionate on the pitch!

Arsenal draw luck MU in the top 4

The 1-1 draw in the first match in MU was taken in the 7th round of the Premier League, bringing Arsenal back to the top 4 teams in the rankings.


However, the “Gunners of London” still received a lot of public pressure because again encountered unsatisfactory results when marching to Old Trafford.

Scott McTominay opened the scoring for “Reds” with a beautiful free kick in the 45th minute. But in the 58th minute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang punished the mistake of young defender Axel Tuanzebe to help Unai Emery’s army avoid Old Trafford’s defeat at Old Trafford, thanks to the help of VAR (Video Assist Video Technology) determined he was not offside when scoring.

A point of departure from Manchester helped Arsenal have 12 points equal to rival London – West Ham but more than “Sledgehammer” on the sub-index to occupy fourth place in the English Premier League rankings when the round 7 closed. However, the sad historic milestones still fill Arsenal’s name after the difficult match with MU recently.

“Gunners of London” has extended 13 games in a row without winning host MU when guests at Old Trafford in the framework of the English Premier League for the past 13 years since they won this great rival 1-0 in September in 2006 (lost 8, drawn 5 matches afterwards).

Arsenal also could not beat MU in the league in 42 years when marching to the “Theater of Dreams” and have received a goal since this North London team won 2-1 here in 1977.

2

The outstanding individuals in the recent heroic battle of the two former British football kings have also made memorable milestones in their careers. Scott McTominay had the first goal at Old Trafford for MU after 25 times the Scottish midfielder played in all the arenas.

With Aubameyang, Gabon became the first person to score 7 goals for Arsenal after the first 7 rounds in a season in the Premier League since the case of Dutch legend Dennis Bergkamp 1997/98 season.

Another Arsenal player, Bukayo Saka – the British 18-year-old winger who became the youngest player in history to start the Premier League match in the confrontation between MU and the “Gunners”.

West Ham vs MU: Lanzini is very dangerous

United as a guest of West Ham in the 6th round of the Premier League and one of the biggest threats from the host is Manuel Lanzini.


Despite spending £45 million to buy Sebastien Haller and 25 million to buy Pablo Fornals, it is Manuel Lanzini’s return that is considered the most important factor that can help West Ham make a difference.

After missing most of last season due to a tendon injury and many other injuries, Lanzini is rediscovering his best form. He created 15 chances for his teammates after 5 games of the new season, only less than De Bruyne (19 chances) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (21).

1

In West Ham’s 4-1-4-1 diagram, Lanzini is one of two people playing the “No. 8” role with Mark Noble. Supported by his teammates, he was able to freely occupy gaps. Not good at tackling but Lanzini played hard, determined, ready to steal the opponent’s ball and launched sharp passes for teammates.

MU must be very wary whenever holding the ball in 1/3 of the field. West Ham this season holds an average of 47.4% of the ball, ready to let the opponent hold the ball more and then sneak the opportunity to exploit the opponent’s mistake. Before MU, Lanzini and Noble will find opportunities to steal the ball, along with Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko on the wings of the counter-attack.

Lanzini tends to have a wide kick near the edge, helping West Ham to create a large number of players near the boundary and thereby make it easier to move the ball upwards instead of being forced to cross the border, slowing the pace up the ball. Not only has a good mind when passing the ball, Lanzini also has the ability to move at high speed, helping him easily exploit the gaps exposed in the opponent’s defense.

Thanks to his ability to pass people in hand-to-hand situations, Lanzini makes the opponent tend to stand a meter away from him to guard instead of approaching. As a result, he has room to make a deadly pass or launch a cross on the bottom third of the opponent’s field. That’s exactly what happened when Lanzini assisted Anderson to score in the match against MU last season.

Another problem MU must be very wary of the threat from Lanzini is the fixed situation, especially the corner kick because the player of The Hammers is capable of dangerous free kick. Quick free kicks from the wings. Of the 15 chances Lanzini has created since the start of the season, nine come from live balls. The remaining 6 chances are created from dangerous free kicks into the local ban.

Van Dijk won the best player in Europe

The Liverpool center-back surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in UEFA’s most prestigious individual title race.


“I am very proud to receive this title. It recognizes the hard work of everyone who helped me. I need to thank my teammates, without them, I cannot achieve the achievements that I have done. I have come a long way and this title is part of that journey”, Van Dijk said during the awards ceremony in Monaco.

Virgil Van Dijk contributed to bring Liverpool to the Champions League last season , finished second in the Premier League and the Dutch team to the Nations League final. 

1

At the end of last season, he therefore acquired a series of titles in England. But this victory takes Van Dijk to a new level when the opponents he overcomes are the two brightest stars of the contemporary football world: Messi and Ronaldo – who have captured four of these five titles in previous seasons.

Messi and Ronaldo are also the other two candidates on this year’s nominees – in a poll conducted by top journalists and coaches. Van Dijk joined Liverpool in January 2018 for $100 million – a record fee for a defender then. In addition to winning the title of best player in Europe, Van Dijk also held the title of best defender in the Champions League last season.

The Champions League Best Goalkeeper Award goes to Alisson. The Brazilian goalkeeper has excelled, contributing greatly to the Liverpool championship.

The best midfielder was given to Frenkie de Jong. The 22-year-old with Ajax made a surprise when passing Real and Juventus to the semi-finals, before losing to Tottenham. This season, De Jong will attend the Champions League with Barca after joining Catalonia.

The best striker belongs to Lionel Messi. The sixth Barca star  won the Champions League scorer  last season with a record of 12 goals, more than four goals compared to the second (Robert Lewandowski). In addition, Messi won the European Golden Shoe.

In the women’s category, Lucy Bronze won the European Footballer of the Year award. She was the first English female player to do this. Bronze could not attend the awards ceremony on August 29 because he was playing for England to play a friendly against Belgium in Leuven. Bronze is playing for the French club Lyon. Earlier this year, she shone at the women’s soccer World Cup and received the Silver Ball title as well as the second highest scorer in the tournament.

MU: Where is David Moyes’s first squad now?

Coach David Moyes has accepted an impossible task to replace Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester. Since then, MU has undergone three coaches and has yet to win the Premier League championship.


The departure of Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the saddest days in United’s history, although he has informed the club of his successor, coach David Moyes. At that time, David Moyes was considered the perfect choice for United’s manager. In contrast, MU has also put all his faith in him when deciding to sign a contract for 6 years.

Coach David Moyes opened his term at the Old Trafford Stadium by winning the Community Shield in 2013. However, MU’s results have gradually worsened over the length of the season. Finally, coach David Moyes was dismissed by MU after only 10 months of appointment.

Below is the fate of the first MU squad under Coach David Moyes.

David de Gea

The Spanish goalkeeper kept a clean sheet in the debut match of manager David Moyes, when United won 2-0 against Wigan in the 2013 Super Cup. Since then, David de Gea has played a role as the pillar and has over 300 appearances for MU.

1

Rafael

Joining MU in 2008, Rafael is considered the first choice at the right-back position before he dies. He signed a new 4-year contract in 2012 and was awarded the iconic No. 2 shirt. However, he was sold to Lyon by MU in 2015 for an undisclosed fee. Currently he is still in Lyon shirt and has a total of 120 appearances, scoring 2 goals and 11 assists.

2

Phil Jones

The British defender is still playing for MU. Although considered the future of MU defense, Phil Jones has failed to win the official position because of injury and deterioration.

3

Nemanja Vidic

David Moyes’s first season was also the last season of Nemanja Vidic with United. After winning 300 appearances for MU, the Serbian midfielder moved to Inter and competed in two years. Now he has retired and wants to take a coaching career. After retiring, Nemanja Vidic wants to become a coach.

4

Patrice Evra

Patrice Evra will be remembered as one of MU’s best left backs after joining Monaco in 2006. Like Nemanja Vidic, David Moyes’s first season is also Patrice Evra’s last season with MU. He then joined Juventus and returned to the Premier League to wear West Ham in 2018. In July 2019, he announced retirement.

Mourinho broke the crowd, Pogba disillusioned to Real?

Pogba’s desire to land at Real Madrid was suddenly shocked because the name was no stranger to French player Jose Mourinho.


Pogba’s departure from the beginning of the transfer spent a lot of paper on the press until now, the future of the French player has not been determined. However, a new turning point has appeared and this turning point is likely to bring the final answer to the story of Pogba – MU – Real Madrid.

Real is in a lack of persuasion during the past time, Zidane’s second term could not bring joy to Real Madrid’s host club in the past. And that is exactly why this French coach can fly his chair right before Christmas, even earlier.

1

It is worth mentioning that the name chosen to replace Zidane is an unfamiliar name for Pogba himself, Jose Mourinho. Before the prospect of the Real Madrid ship sinking, this team needs a personal coach who can bring it back on track, and according to the leaked rumors, the former Manchester United coach, who has been indirectly kicked by Pogba was aimed to sit in the position that Zidane left. This is not a piece of happy news for the Manchester Utd payroll midfielder.

The relationship between Pogba and Mourinho is no stranger, the Portuguese teacher publicly imprisoned the French star on the bench at the time of his leadership, while Pogba, he did not just hold the head of the dressing room, indirectly impacting the decision to sack Mourinho of Manchester United. With the above collisions, these two names probably never want to touch, let alone work together one more time.

2

Moreover, Mourinho has a very close relationship with President Florentino Perez. This information will greatly affect Pogba’s decision to move to Real, plus salary demands, the dream of wearing the Spanish Royal team more and more obscure with the French star.

Of course, this is just one of the theories because Zidane is still given the opportunity to continue to prove. But even if it is a rumor, just think of reuniting Mourinho, Pogba would have to really consider it.

NRL is not involved in the sale but the player is warned

Detectives investigating allegations of settling the results of the NRL match Rugby in Australia has discovered some cases that could be considered a criminal violation, but these are not related to NRL Football League.


Violations including drug supply and money laundering lead to warnings of players from different teams. After a two-year investigation, New South Wales Police Organized Crime Extermination Team, with Inspector Steve Cook, said there were stories that NRL or Football League followed Australian Formula, very eager to know.

“That investigation has been completed and there will be no prosecution after this investigation, there are a number of issues raised in the investigation, related to other Organizational Crime Exclusion missions, for further investigation”.

1

There were four matches in the season from 2015 to 2016 that were investigated and the police said they were satisfied when there was no match for the matches. NRL President Todd Greenberg said it was a positive result. “What I am very interested in has been hundreds of hours of investigation, interview and follow-up, and there has been no prosecution at all”.

The tactical force, called Nuralda, has looked at 46,000 pages of paper plus 300 pages of federal government financial executives’ data, monitoring Australian people’s transfers, referred to as Austrac. There were 161 invited witnesses, and 59 search cases along with 13 people, considered characters that seemed to be involved in the case.

2

Detective Cook said the investigation was successful. “It was absolutely a victory because firstly, NRL felt confident that this was carefully considered, and secondly, it highlighted some fundamental issues for the safety of bridges. their status, status as well as the status of the NRL, which we have mentioned”.

Police said they did not suspect that some players had spread information related to four matches and were investigated. They also said that the profiles of these players remain confidential, so their details will not be disclosed to the NRL’s ethics department. But the issue of NRL players involved in organized crime is a real thing.

Chile vs Peru: The champion decides or the Black Horse will step forward?

Chile will face Peru in the semifinals of the Copa America 2019, the defending champions will have to decode the the opponent if they want to have a third consecutive tournament to the Copa America 2019.


Chile is showing a respectable stubbornness on the road to the semi-finals of the Copa America 2019. Meanwhile Peru is not just a hand when the tournament’s black horse has also pocketed the heavyweight candidate – Uruguay. The confrontation between Chile and Peru promises to be dramatic and unpredictable.

Chile – Difficult to stop the king

Chile’s squad came to the 2019 Copa making not many people believe that they will go far in this year’s tournament. Despite being the defending champion, the responsibility is still on the shoulders of those who have had two previous titles and are no longer fit.

Arturo Vidal, Alexis Sanchez, Vargas and even Medel have been Chile’s frameworks in recent years. They may not be anything at the club but when they return to the national team, they show a different face. A Vidal is perfect in both attack and defense, a Sanchez is the focal point of the ball and a strange Vargas with goals.

1

Chile is no longer young, but even so they still do not lack the spirit and desire. Looking at the way Vidal fought with Colombia’s stardom, no one thought he was 32 years old. Alexis Sanchez’s aggressive moves are unlike what they see on Man United.

What does Chile now own? It is not the speed of play or too rich in fighting, it is not the attack. Looking back and forth, Chile does not stand out but carries in the remarkable bravery. That is the character of the champions, which will probably bring them to the Copa America final for the third time in a row.

Peru – Black Horse doesn’t want to stop

Peru is not the name that experts or fans mentioned before the Copa America took place. But remember the last 2 times they all finish in 3rd place. They are only considered black horse when nobody thinks they will go far but if they look at their interests, Peru came to Copa America season this year not just to win the 3rd prize.

2

Looking at the heavy defeat of 0-5 in front of Brazil, Peru seems fragile but they are not really fragile. If there is no bad luck, they are not easy to lose to Brazil.

Meeting Uruguay with the Cavani and Suarez couples but the certainty made the opponent frustrated and helped Peru continue on the spot. The confrontation between the two most annoying teams will create an unpredictable confrontation in the Copa America semi-final. Peru certainly does not want to stop as the past two Copa America finals are their goal.

Juventus: With Sarri, Ronaldo is the scariest back?

New Italian media then mentioned the possibility of Maurizio Sarri turning Cristiano Ronaldo from CR7 to CR9 from next season. The goal here is to optimize Ronaldo’s ability to hunt goals.


Juventus bought Ronaldo back to Ronaldo to serve their goal of conquering their major titles, especially the Champions League (of course). But different from other stars, Ronaldo is the “Special One” in the star world, though the cult of the philosophy of “collective is first” and “the team is the biggest star”, Juve must also serve expectations of Ronaldo in the literal sense of this concept.

1

The reason is very simple. Ronaldo is not only a goalscoring machine, not only a striker can guarantee Juve a few dozen goals in Serie A each season, can score Juve goals in the Champions League. Ronaldo also brought Juve other “surplus values” equally as professional. He helped Juve up the brand.

He helps Juve to broaden coverage worldwide. He helps Juve increase ticket sales, advertising sales … In other words, he helps Juve increase the ability to make money. A player who has made a major contribution, has just made a big commercial contribution to the club, of course Juve cannot be as equal as other stars but must accept to turn Ronaldo into exception.

What does it mean to serve Ronaldo here? Juve must choose the game to create maximum conditions for Ronaldo to score, score and score. The desire to shine, the ambition and motivation of Ronaldo how we all are clear. With Ronaldo, happiness on the football field means goals are scored and trophies are conquered. Establishing a competitive system that allows Ronaldo to score the most can certainly make Ronaldo happy.

2

Which makes Ronaldo happy also means serving the goals of Juve because Ronaldo is satisfied, he can maintain the inspiration to play and stick with the Italian team for a long time. And that’s what Juve needs, is also what Juve wants because if you invest 112 million euros on Ronaldo and have not conquered the Champions League, you have to sell Ronaldo, then Juve failed in terms of sports (though it can be big about trade). 28 goals/42 matches in the league (21 goals in Serie A) Ronaldo scored for Juve in the first season is obviously a very good start to any star but with Ronaldo it is clearly a step backwards compared to the time. Real jacket. So he is not really happy. He has sometimes shown it last season and Max Allegri has to go away partly because he has not optimized Ronaldo’s performance.

How to optimize Ronaldo?

Italian media said that Sarri is expected to turn Ronaldo into a “virtual 9” from next season and he was quoted as saying “will help Ronaldo score at least 40 goals per season”. The first season in Juventus, Ronaldo kicked the left wing in a 3-man attack. But Ronaldo scored poorly compared to his time at Real not because he kicked the left wing at Juve while in Real he was in the middle.

In fact, Ronaldo is a good soccer player, also effective whether left wing, right wing or midfield. Simply, he has the ability to play extremely good ball, very sensitive in sniffing the opportunity, occupying space and choosing the position, so where Ronaldo kicked on Juve attack next season is absolutely not The effective determinant of his goals.

3

The problem here is not to place Ronaldo where the other players support him. Although playing independently well, Ronaldo still needs to be served, especially anyway he is 34 years old.

Exactly he needs and wants to receive as much ball as possible in dynamic situations. You need to be able to create many free kick chances if you’re dead. Last season, Ronaldo ‘s demand was not really good at Juventus because Juve lacked excellent footers and because of Max Allegri’ s rather cautious tactics.

But Sarri chose to attack football so Juve will play football that allows Ronaldo to have the opportunity to optimize his goalscoring. Juve actually had good factors for Sarri’s attacking play such as Bernardeschi, Bonucci, Alex Sandro… They recruited Aaron Ramsey (good at the ball) to optimize Ronaldo. They decided to buy De Ligt also to optimize Ronaldo. And of course, they chose Sarri instead of Max Allegri to also optimize Ronaldo.

Juve is doing everything to make Ronaldo happy, which also means making themselves happy when the above-mentioned relationship is two-dimensional.
