Arsene Wenger believes that German international Mesut Ozil is starting to develop the attribute of captaincy in his game.
Ozil arrived from Real Madrid for a club record £ 42 million. After struggling in his first full year at the club, he is starting to dominate games. Ozil is on course to creating a new record in terms of assists over a league campaign. The German already has a whopping 16 assists in the league with the season just past Christmas. If he continues on the same vein of form, Thierry Henry’s record of just over 20 assists in a league season will be broken quite comfortably.
Chelsea have been going through one of the disastrous periods in recent memory after having lost five league games already.
This record sees them near the bottom of the table and nowhere near enough to retain the league title that the team won last season. One of the reasons put forward has been the lack of form amongst key players like Diego Costa. At this stage last season, Costa was on course to becoming the league’s top scorer. This time around, he has scored less than five league goals. It puts a lot of pressure on the backup forwards Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy.
Louis Saha has warned Everton about the threat of the Sunderland strikers. Everton travel to the Stadium of Light this evening looking to extend a run of form that has seen them take 29 points from a possible 33 against their hosts.
And Louis Saha admits Everton must keep the pair in check tonight as they aim to bounce back from a seven-match unbeaten run being ended by last week’s defeat to Arsenal.
“Their strikers are dangerous and Gyan and Welbeck – who I know very well – are good players,” said Saha.
Monaco are ready to swap Dieumerci Mbokani for Everton’s Louis Saha, who they are interested in. There have been rumours in France that Monaco are keen to offload the flop for around a month, and after beating the Toffees to the striker in the summer it seems that Mbokani could end up on Merseyside in any case.
With Louis Saha badly struggling for form too, it is believed that a capture of the international is possible, especially as the Congo striker would likely be his direct replacement.
Louis Saha has said that the match against Wigan athletic could kick start Everton’s season. After an impressive pre-season and a recall to the France squad, the Frenchman’s progress has been hampered by injury.
He broke his duck for Everton in the Carling Cup victory over Huddersfield Town but was soon banished to the treatment room by a calf problem sustained while on international duty against Slovenia.
Former player of Manchester United Louis Saha, recommended the Premier League club in signing AlexandreLacazette from Lyon as the retired player believes that Lacazette has everything Manchester United needs in order to win the Premier League title which they haven’t won since since 2013.
AlexandreLacazette is a 24 year old attacker who just finished going through a phenomenal season as he scored 27 goals in 33 games as he earned the Golden Boot award from the Ligue 1. He was the top goal-scorer of the French League and Louis Saha is certain that Lacazette can bring something new to Old Trafford.
Former French international Louis Saha says that he expects Manchester United to win the title in the near future. After the appointment of Louis van Gaal in the summer, results have been highly inconsistent.
It is only in the last few months that Manchester United have been able to go on a run of victories that is reminiscent of the older form. Saha won several league titles with United before injuries prevented him from making a huge impact. The former striker left the club for Everton just a few years after arriving from Fulham.
Thierry Henry might be seen on the Football pitch once again as the France bosses are thinking about giving him a recall for a farewell match.
Henry has recently quit Football at all level to take the job of a television analyst in United Kingdom.
He played his last competitive game on the American turf and many of his fans were not able to see that.
There have been demands that he should be made to play once more in front of the home crowd.
Some former French players have also been supporting these demands of the fans.
Didier Deschamps, the France head coach, while talking to a news channel the previous night, dropped hints that he might be inviting Henry to serve the Les Blues for one final time.
Robin Van Persie disclosed yesterday that after going down 3-5 against Leicester City, the whole Red Devils’ squad sat together and had a bit of a confrontation. In that meeting, there were talks about certain areas where the team has been faltering.
According to Van Persie, defence has certainly been an issue for his team, but, the central forward also believes that there are errors being committed in other areas as well.
In that Leicester game, United was looking like getting home when they were 3-1 up, but, in the last half an hour, the hosts turned the table in style, smashing 4 goals, one after the other, to leave the visiting supporters shell shocked.
Paul Pogba is hailed to be as one of the most promising young players in the world of soccer as the Frenchman is a consistent performer for Juventus and even at his 21 years of age he has performed at the grandest stage of them all in the World Cup representing France along with recognized and veteran figures such as: Karim Benzema, Hugo Lloris and Patrice Evra.
Manchester United managed to sign Pogba back when he was only 16 years old as the Frenchman joined the youth team of the English club until he eventually was promoted to the senior team but could only make 2 league appearances as he was eventually released to the Italian side Juventus.
