Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool: Reds denied Champions League spot

first_img Branislav Ivanovic gave away a silly free kick and Steven Gerrard found some space to nod in at the back post. The midfielder, who is leaving England at the end of the season, had been given plenty of abuse by Chelsea fans, but they applauded him off when he was substituted. Premier League champions Chelsea drew with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, meaning it is virtually impossible for the Reds to qualify for the Champions League.  10/05/2015 The Blues didn’t push on from there – perhaps an after affect of winning the title and taking a few days off – and Liverpool were level just before the break. Upd. at 19:35 Sport EN CEST They are six points behind Manchester United, who are fourth, with two games to go and a vastly inferior goal difference.  Gerrard could have signed for Chelsea nearly a decade ago, but eventually stayed at Liverpool – a decision that cost him the chance to win a Premier League title – as the Blues fans reminded him. Chelsea opened the scoring when Cesc Fabregas curled in a corner that John Terry nodded home. It was his 39th Premier League goal, more than any other defender in the history of the competition.last_img read more

Corriere: Juventus to go all out for Real Madrid’s Isco

first_img Sport EN Juve thought they stood a chance in January, too.

The Spanish striker’s buy-back clause is just over 30 million euros.last_img read more

There are linguistic problems too; but this is a normal acclimatisation period. He is a very open person who is extremely reflective when not everything is going right. CET “But we need to acknowledge that he is not used to playing every three days and carrying absolute responsibility for the game. “For that reason he’ll continue to get full support.” Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel defended Marc Bartra against claims he is in bad form. 21/12/2016last_img read more
