FA Cup: Arsenal defeats Manchester City to face Chelsea in Final
Former Arsenal midfielder, Emmanuel Petit has said that “Arsenal players need to be told to stop acting “like babies,”

Arsene Wenger’s men have lost two of their opening three Premier League games, including a 4-0 defeat at Liverpool before the international break.

The nature of the defeat at Anfield, where Arsenal did not have a shot on target and had goalkeeper Petr Cech to thank for the scoreline not being even worse, led Wenger to call the performance “disastrous’.’

Former World Cup winner Petit, who helped Arsenal to the double in 1998, believes the players need a major wake-up call if the club are to achieve success this season.

“When I see them play they seem to play without motivation,” Petit told the Sunday Mirror. “The blame is put on Arsene, but I cannot see that it is all down to him. Why should it be?

“Why should a player need motivating to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world, in one of the best stadiums in the world? Some of them do not seem to know what it means to wear that Arsenal shirt.

“They get good money to play for a club like Arsenal. Yet, so few of them look happy and motivated. How can that be?

“Someone should sit them down and tell them not to act like babies and kids. They should be proud of wearing that Arsenal shirt.

“Many of those players do not seem to realise how lucky they are to be at the club. I just want to shake the tree and tell them how fortunate they are to play at a club of Arsenal’s standing.

“If Arsenal are to achieve anything this season, then the motivation must come back into the team. And the players have to be responsible for that.”

Chelsea intensifies Andy Carroll Chase

Chelsea intensifies Andy Carroll Chase

Reports making the rounds today reveals that Chelsea are hugely interested in signing Andy Carroll from West Ham this month.

The Premier League champions has suffered a third successive goalless draw, for the first time in their history, against Leicester City on Saturday seems to have lost faith in Álvaro Morata.

The Spaniard has scored only twice in the top flight since mid-November and has gone five games without a goal.

Antonio Conte has now turned to Carroll for rescue as the Italian man continues to be reluctant to play Michy Batshuayi who will possibly be going on loan to Sevilla if a replacement can be secured.

Andy Carroll signed for West Ham from Liverpool in 2013 for £15m, and has seen his impact limited by injury in the years since.

Verge24 understands that the move for Chelsea signing Carroll may be a short-term solution before a summer recruitment drive, and West Ham would take some persuasion to part with Carroll on a six‑month loan deal.

David Moyes suggested last week that he would not want to see any of his forwards depart. Yet that may not dissuade Chelsea from exploring the option, reflecting the need to pep up the forward line amid a cluttered schedule.

Kelechi Iheanacho Going Nowhere – Claude Puel

Leicester City coach Claude Puel has dismissed speculation of his £25 million striker Kelechi Iheanacho leaving due to lack of playing time this January.

Puel refused to write off the former Manchester City forward, who has found the back of the net just once for the club this season.

Kelechi Iheanacho signed for Leicester in the summer from Manchester City but has made just two Premier League starts for the foxes.

The Nigerian Super Eagles attacking forward is expected to be on his way out of the club for a possible playing time in a quest to guarantee his place in the team to represent Nigeria in Russia later this year.

Last week, Nigeria national team handler Gernot Rohr said that he expects Iheanacho and his teammate Ahmed Musa to leave the King Power Stadium because of their lack of playing time, Puel has however dismissed any exit talk. According to him;

“We don’t know about what the national trainer said. We will see. We have discussions with different players. For example Iheanacho is a young player, arrived this season, and he will stay with us.

“I cannot talk about details about players. It is important to have a good balance in the team and have a good game time for the players.

“Iheanacho is a young player, he signed this season with us and we have to develop him. I hope he can have more game time in the second half of the season.”

He is a young player who arrives in a good team where there is competition and he needs to keep working and improve.”

Leicester will visit Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League with Jamie Vardy fit after a groin injury.
