Everyone makes the same comment about Romelu Lukaku vs Sevilla

Sports
Missed chance Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku comes in for a huge amount of stick at times, and many people can’t wait but to get on his case when he misses a chance, and the comment he’s only decent against the bottom sides in the Premier League keeps being said. Against Sevilla, he had a brilliant chance to make it 1-0 and get a key away goal, but he failed to do so and couldn’t keep the ball down, skying it and being compared to a rugby player by some people. There are of course another 45 minutes for United to get a goal or at least provide something for their fans to cheer about, but at the minute, they’ve been lacking, and even with Paul Pogba coming on, they’ve not been good enough, and it seems that David De Gea once again had to keep them in t...

Antonio Conte is answering his critics as Blues form improves - originally posted on Sportslens.com 2018 started horribly for Antonio Conte. An indifferent start saw the likelihood of the Italian dropping through the Stamford Bridge trapdoor. However, to the surprise of many, the former Italy manager is still firmly sat in the Stamford Bridge hot seat. Demoralising defeats only weeks ago against Bournemouth and Watford put Conte under immense pressure. The Italian had reached the crossroads. Very much a ‘do or die’ situation as they faced West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge only nine days ago. The Baggies are having a terrible season themselves, but a huge performance was needed from The Blues to wipe away the cobwebs and put their season back on track. A 3-0 victory ensue...

Alexandre Lacazette told he has no future at Arsenal

No future Alexandre Lacazette needs to leave Arsenal according to Steve Nicol, who thinks the player has no future at the club as long as Arsene Wenger is manager. After being overlooked in the biggest of games since his arrival at the club and now seeing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang join the club, Lacazette is in even more danger of spending time on the bench, and that’s not good enough for someone of his calibre. “I think this is a no-brainer,” the Liverpool legend told ESPN FC. “If you’re Lacazette, do you want to stay at Arsenal? “You’ve never been given a chance, they bring in another player in Aubameyang, which pretty much tells you you have no future at Arsenal, absolutely. “Wenger never gave him a chance, he never started him in the big games at the start of the season.
