Hazard, Sanchez Set to Start as Chelsea Host Arsenal in London…

first_imgDespite winning the FA Cup in May, the heat is already being turned up on Wenger after the Gunners suffered two straight league defeats on the road against Liverpool and Stoke. The last time they lost their opening three league away games was in 1954.Chelsea – the Premier League champions – have been ticking over nicely since their opening weekend defeat at home to Burnley. Victories against Tottenham, Everton and Leicester followed which have put Antonio Conte’s men in a strong position going into this intriguing clash.Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater is expected to be out until the October international break. Drinkwater was an unused substitute against his former club Leicester last Saturday and missed the midweek Champions League win over Qarabag with a calf problem which means he could be out for four weeks.Chelsea are likely to rotate their options after making changes for the Qarabag contest, with playmaker Eden Hazard in contention to start for the Blues for the first time this season.Arsenal are likely to recall a host of first-team regulars for the short trip. Wenger made nine alterations for the Europa League win over Cologne but the likes of Petr Cech, Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette will all return to the squad at Stamford Bridge.Alexis Sanchez will feature after playing the whole game on Thursday night, where Theo Walcott (calf) hobbled off. Francis Coquelin (hamstring) and Santi Cazorla (ankle) are definitely out.After winning just four of the previous 16, Chelsea have won their last five home Premier League games against Arsenal, since a 3-5 defeat in October 2011. The Gunners haven’t kept a Premier League clean sheet at Stamford Bridge in their last 12 visits there, shipping at least twice in each of the eight.Arsenal have lost their last five away Premier League games versus Chelsea, their joint-longest away losing run in the competition against a single opponent (also 5 in a row vs Man Utd between 2009-2013).Chelsea have scored in 23 successive Premier League games at Stamford Bridge with over half of these (12) seeing them score three or more goals.Arsenal last won a Premier League away game against a side that finished in the top six last season, back in January 2015 (2-0 at Man City) – they’ve since lost eight and drawn five of their 13 matches on the road against these clubs.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Chelsea host Arsenal in the first part of Super Sunday today knowing a victory will heap more pressure on Arsene Wenger’s shoulders. Arsenal have not won any of the last 13 Premier League away games against last season’s top-six teams and have suffered defeats on seven of their last eight visits to Stamford Bridge.Wenger last tasted victory on the road against one of the big boys nearly 1000 days ago when they saw off Manchester City 2-0 in 2015.last_img read more

STUNNING BOOK ON 100 YEARS OF KILMACRENNAN SOCCER SET TO MAKE DEBUT

first_imgA book chronicling the history of soccer in the Kilmacrennan area over the last century will be launched on Friday next, August 31st, in the Anglers Haven at 8pm.‘Kilmacrennan FC – an illustrated history’ is a 344 page hard-back publication that has been compiled by Kilmacrennan Celtic FC’s Trevor Gorman and is the culmination of 18 months of research.Speaking about the book – it’s in full colour and contains 556 photos – Trevor explained that the club received 75 per cent funding from the Donegal Local Development Company for the project. “I got a great deal of help from a number of people – Tony Gorman, Hugo McDaid, Paddy McMenamin, James Doherty, Mairead Shields, Oran Doherty and Gavin Gorman all made vital contributions. 500 books have been printed and at this stage we are all looking forward to the launch,” Trevor commented.“The stories told in the book by the people of Kilmacrennan help recreate the special moments of a club which has some of the most devoted and proud people in football. Each section reflects the triumphs and disasters in the long history of football in our village. Some recall thumping victories, where individual players rose gloriously to the occasion and others remind us of the brittle fragility of junior football. Matches are memorable for goals, major incident, end to end free flowing football, or sometimes simply a special occasion like the 1953 youth cup final in Swilly Park,” he added.Describing the book a unique collection of memorable and evocative photographs, Trevor said its primary aim is to bring to life the memories of the history of one of Donegal’s most cherished football clubs.“Much has happened in the last century –  too much to record fully in the book. To give our story meaning we must seek out land marks, find moments to explain much in a short space of time. Players such as Murray, Strain, Burke and Grant, the famous 1996 Downtown cup final, the pursuit of our first Donegal Premier League title and the white hot excitement as the women toured the country in search of national cup silverware are all treasured memories of the ‘Kilmac’ faithful. ” Trevor continued: “The stories surrounding these games have been compiled through research from old newspapers, from talking to older supporters and former players and delving into the few other books written about the club and its history. It has been a privilege to bring together the special memories of a football club so rich in tradition.“In recent years I have my own recollections as a coach, a player and a supporter which go back to the early 90’s. However, organised football in Kilmacrennan dates back to 1922 when Johnnie Gorman, the great grandfather of the club we know today, and his original pioneers , organised a ‘footballers ball’ to fund the running of a cup competition in Kilmacrennan and also to enter a team to compete in other local summer cups at a time when there was no league football and cup was king.”He added: “I hope all Kilmac fans and football lovers in general will enjoy reading of the elation, despair, celebration and heartbreak in the fortunes of all our teams over the years, have a greater understanding of the history of this great club, and what makes it tick.”STUNNING BOOK ON 100 YEARS OF KILMACRENNAN SOCCER SET TO MAKE DEBUT was last modified: August 23rd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:STUNNING BOOK ON 100 YEARS OF KILMACRENNAN SOCCER SET TO MAKE DEBUTlast_img read more
