The clubs are meeting in the FA Cup’s tie of the round after sobering defeats last weekThe fast-moving world of football has managed to overtake what promised to be an FA Cup treat at Stamford Bridge on Monday night. When the draw was made, Chelsea’s pairing with Manchester United was the obvious fifth-round highlight, but that was before both clubs suffered chastening setbacks.Chelsea suffered their heaviest defeat of the Premier League era at the hands of Manchester City last Sunday, a 6-0 thrashing that left Maurizio Sarri in a state of shock. It is highly unlikely that Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s United will be quite so ruthless and relentless, though with a Carabao Cup final against City due at the end of the month one could readily understand Sarri and his players feeling apprehensi

And just what persuaded Cardiff to give contracts to Willie McKay’s twins?By now, I expect you might have seen that old video clip of the time Harry Redknapp was hosting a question-and‑answer session at West Ham and taking a bit of heat from someone in the audience who seemed to suspect they might have taken their reputation as a family club a little too far.The irate fan didn’t seem to care when Redknapp said the 18‑year‑old sitting to his right was destined for the “very, very top”.

Adama Traoré: ‘I am self-critical, I need to do better in the final third’

Football News
Wolves’ Spanish winger tells Paul Wilson about leaving Barcelona as a teenager and why he slowed down to improve his game“A massive difference,” Adama Traoré says when invited to compare the tactics of Nuno Espírito Santo with those of Tony Pulis. “At Wolves we play more offensively, at Middlesbrough it was more counterattack, waiting for the opportunity when the opponents lose the ball. Here is more movement.“I spend a lot of time talking to the coach about where is the best position for me to be able to explode, because at Middlesbrough the wingers played open.
