Arsenal in 'pole-position' to sign Premier League victor

Arsenal in 'pole-position' to sign Premier League victor

Chelsea have lost further ground to teams above them in the Premier League and are just clinging on to a top four place at the moment with Tottenham snapping at their heels in fifth.

Despite having restored domestic dominance in some style during Antonio Conte's first season at the helm, the decision was taken to tinker with a star-studded squad.

Manchester United, whose leading players include: Paul Pogba and David de Gea, are now second in the 20-club English Premier League.

Last season, Manchester United won the English League Cup, as well as Europe's second-tier Europa League competition, securing a slot in the cash-rich Champions League for the current season.

He has been influential in two Premier League title triumphs during his time in SW6, and we hope that this is not the closing stages of the Chelsea chapter of Hazard's career, despite continuous links to Real Madrid.

Rooney said: "I think Chelsea are a great team".

"This was a game we couldn't afford to lose". Previous year we didn't have the Champions League.

"Football is not about switching off for three games and then switching it on for one game".

Chelsea will look to return to winning ways when they host West Brom in the Premier League on Monday night.

There is heavy speculation surrounding the future of Antonio Conte, with many reports expecting him to be sacked before the end of the season after a hard season in charge, with the latest humiliation being the 4-1 defeat against Watford on Monday night. "You never know what's going to happen, especially in England".
