Man Utd have to play again in the FA Cup

He missed many opportunities, Man Utd drew host Wolverhampton 0-0 in the third round of the FA Cup on 4/1.

Once the ball hit the crossbar and a penalty was denied, Ole Solskjaer teachers and students probably are not happy to have to play with Wolves again in the next 10 days. Man Utd’s schedule will be even thicker, as they have to strain on three domestic arenas. Their competitive density maintained about three days a game.

The two teams proved to be in balance, with dangerous opportunities dividing the two ends of the field. Wolves hosts only four positions and tries to impose the game. 13 minutes, from a corner, Dendoncker headed into the head of the far post. Matt Doherty was waiting to pad the ball into the net, but goalkeeper Romero reflected quickly and pushed the ball into the corner with his hand.

Wolves 0-0 Man Utd

The most remarkable situation of the first half came in the 31st minute, when Dendoncker controlled the error and was banned from Williams by the ball. Attempt to save the Belgian central defender Williams fell down. Referee Paul Tierney did not cut the whistle, then VAR also confirmed no fault of Dendoncker. The Molineux spectators cheered after the home team was not penalized, then shouted slogans against VAR.

The visitors were more sorry with 70 minutes, when the Wolves player broke the yard. The visitors quickly gave Greenwood, leaving the 18-year-old striker to make a clearance for Rashford to face the keeper. Rashford takes the ball long and his kick hits the defender’s opponent, then bounces off the crossbar.

Wolves quickly responded. 76 minutes, Jonny cross ball for Doherty headed into the net Romero hit the net. But the goal was disallowed because the ball touched Doherty’s hand before it went into the net. Five minutes later, Raul Jimenez wisely pressed to eliminate Maguire, then broke into the narrow right corner. Without a support partner, Jimenez went over the bar and went over the bar.

The two teams will play again at Old Trafford on January 14 or January 15. Between these two matches, Man Utd will play two matches at home, against Man City in the semi-final first leg of the League Cup and Norwich in the Premier League.

Chelsea won Tottenham in the 18th round

Winning the hosts Tottenham 2-0 in the 18th round of Premier League on December 22, Chelsea preserved the position in the top four.

Goalscoring

Willian at the 12th minute and 45th minute

Willian is the focus of the match, not just with the brace. The Brazilian midfielder miserable the Tottenham defense with wise situations on the left. He failed to concede Tottenham in the previous 11 matches, but shone just in time to bring back three valuable points for Chelsea.

After the match, coach Frank Lampard ran to the Chelsea audience and jumped incessantly. He shouted and inspired the fans. This was Jose Mourinho’s first defeat when he met his former team. This victory has a special meaning for Lampard – the old game of Mourinho.

Lampard showed that he was taller than Mourinho when using the three-center-back scheme, instead of the two center-backs as usual. This is not the first time the English coach has used this scheme.

Chelsea used the same scheme in the 5-2 win over Wolverhampton on September 14. At that time, Wolves also used the three-center-back scheme and Lampard found a way to exploit the weakness from this diagram.

Tottenham also used three center-backs, and Lampard reverted to the tactic that thrashed Wolves. Willian, Mount and Abraham constantly tormented the Tottenham defense from the start. After the first 10 minutes, Chelsea had three shots. By the 12th minute, Willian went the ball from the left wing into the middle and pleaded to the far corner to open the score.

Tottenham held the ball a lot but did not create a dangerous opportunity, while Chelsea stalked the ability to counterattack unexpectedly. At the end of the first half, from Chelsea’s counterattack, Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga – missed the ball and accidentally made a mistake with Marcos Alonso.

Referee Anthony Taylor did not initially blow the penalty. After VAR intervened, he caught Chelsea’s penalty. On the 11-meter mark, Willian deceived the keeper to set a 2-0 victory. This is the first time the Brazilian midfielder made a brace for Chelsea in three years.

The second half is less beautiful. The highlight is the direct red card of Son Heung-min and the reaction of the Tottenham audience.

Is Carlo Ancelotti a suitable choice for Arsenal now?

You don’t know what will happen to Arsenal, it’s a certainty, when its players don’t even know what they’re fighting for, because of the salary they get, for not wanting to be criticized like Fools or simply go out and finish your game any way you want.

Similar things have been happening at the Emirates Stadium, Mesut Oezil has always been the most boring, Dani Ceballos disappears in a hurry, Pepe does not show that he deserves to be the most expensive player in the club history, Aubameyang doesn’t feel like sticking around any longer, and young talents play football without clear direction.

One can only bow to the victories that Carlo Ancelotti has achieved across the former continent, admiring the wisdom and football ideas that have changed the world’s perception of the sport.

Ancelotti is calm, calm, a friend to the players, knows how to handle complicated relationships with famously difficult presidents like Abramovic or Florentino Perez. He has every reason to succeed at Arsenal, but there are many other reasons to fail at the Emirates Stadium.

The current people at Arsenal need something else, a ferocity from the coach, who can take a walking stick on the training ground and force them to follow the rules. Carlo Ancelotti is too soft, he is not the type of coach to issue steel orders, does not require the players to practice hard, do not like to shout at them and force everyone to obey absolutely.

If so, then it will be a repeat of the Arsene Wenger era, a more benevolent father than a coach shouting out fire. Arsenal don’t need that.

And with all due respect, in the treasure trove of his experience, Carlo Ancelotti has never shown him capable of creating something from the rubble. He is not a strategist for long distance races, even having incredible squads at AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid.

He is very strong when he owns a stable team, owns the throne of big star, and number one in the European arena. But it is not good to take over the turbulent and chaotic clubs.

What happened at Napoli was the latest warning, he lost his influence on the players and could not create a revolution for the club, failed to create a team with enough competitive stability through. Every year. And for the average Arsenal player now, Ljungberg is the best for this situation, just like Lampard with Chelsea.
