Published

on

West Ham have sacked Manuel Pellegrini following their home defeat to Leicester.

Co-owner and chairman David Sullivan said: “It is with great disappointment that we’ve had to make this decision. Manuel is a gentleman and it has been a real pleasure to work with someone of his calibre.

“However, it has become clear that that a change is required to get the club back on track in line with our ambitions this season. We felt it was necessary to act now in order to give the new manager as much time as possible to try and achieve that goal.”

Crystal Palace Hit Back To Deny Man City After Late Aguero Double

Published

on

A late own goal by Fernandinho denied Manchester City a comeback win over Crystal Palace after a 2-2 draw at The Etihad.

Cenk Tosun marked his full debut with a goal as Palace took a shock lead with their first attempt on goal in the 39th minute.

City saw a penalty decision rightly overturned by VAR after an accidental handball by Jairo Riedewald, but the home side drew level with eight minutes to go when Gabriel Jesus’ cross was well tucked away by Sergio Aguero.

And the match was turned on its head five minutes later when Bernard Mendy’s superb centre was met by a fine header from Aguero.

The drama was not over there though and Palace grabbed a leveller in the 90th minute when Wilfried Zaha powered past John Stones and his cross was turned into his own net by Fernandinho.

VAR: EPL Referees To Start Using Pitch-Side Monitors

Published

on

Premier League referees have been told to start using pitch side monitors for red card decisions where it is felt they should have the final say.

The Professional Game Match Officials Limited, the body that manages elite referees, has issued the guidance.

The only time the monitors have been used this season is by Michael Oliver in an FA Cup third-round tie between Crystal Palace and Derby County.

As a result, he upgraded a yellow card for Palace’s Luka Milivojevic to a red.

This is the sort of incident where they are now set to be used in top-flight games.

The move was welcomed by Premier League managers.

Speaking yesterday Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said “It is a positive move. The referee will be taking responsibility himself. I like that.”

One case that could potentially be handled differently in future was that of Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s sending off against Crystal Palace on January 11.

Aubameyang, 30, was initially given a yellow card by referee Paul Tierney for a tackle on midfielder Max Meyer, but the decision was changed to a red by the video assistant referee.

It is felt by the Premier League that Tierney should probably have made the final call to confirm his authority and make the decision more likely to be accepted by both players and fans inside the stadium.

The Gunners appealed against the decision but that was rejected on Wednesday, meaning Gabon international Aubameyang will miss Premier League games against Sheffield United and Chelsea, and the FA Cup fourth-round tie at Bournemouth.

BREAKING: Man Utd Captain Ashley Young Joins Inter

Published

on

Ashley Young has completed his move from Manchester United to Inter Milan on a six-month deal with an option to extend for a further year.

Ashley Young is officially an Inter player. The 34-year-old English defender arrives from Manchester United and has signed a contract lasting until 30 June 2020 with an option to extend for a further season.

No transfer fee has been revealed but according to several sources in Italy, Inter have paid Manchester United €1.5 million to secure the services of the former Aston Villa man, a fee that will increase every time Young plays for the Nerazzurri.

Ashley Young’s contract with Manchester United was due to expire at the end of June 2020 but the Nerazzurri wanted to add him to the fold for the second half of the season and so they negotiated this deal with the Red Devils.

Ashley Young joined Manchester United from Aston Villa ahead of the 2011/2012 season for a reported fee between £15-20 million and has since then featured 261 times across all competitions scoring 19 goals in the process.
