  1. Unai Emery has claimed that Arsenal still have much room for improvement despite winning their last nine games in all competitions. Having lost their opening two games of the season under Emery against Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal are now in a fine run of form going into their Monday night clash with Leicester City at The Emirates. But the Spaniard, who took over from Arsene Wenger in the summer, says he would like to see more control in Arsenal's play, and says every team can cause them problems. In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Emery said: "Not a surprise. We
  2. Roma striker Edin Dzeko has left himself open to a Premier League return but admits it might be too late given his age. The ex-Manchester City forward was on the verge of joining Chelsea in a double-deal with Emerson Palmieri in January. However, the deal collapsed late on and the Blues signed Olivier Giroud instead. The 32-year-old scored 72 goals in 189 appearances across five seasons with City, winning two Premier League titles between 2011 and 2015. Dzeko has scored 78 goals in all competitions since joining Roma and he remains "happy" as first-choice up-front, scoring
  3. Jose Mourinho has challenged Paul Pogba to give the "best he has" for Manchester United following his World Cup heroics with France. The 25-year-old played a starring role for Les Bleus in Russia, starting in all but one of the games and scoring in the final as they eased past Croatia with a 4-2 win in Moscow. Mourinho, who demanded more consistency from Pogba last term, believes that the midfielder found form in the summer due to the tournament format rather than style of play. "I don't think it's about us getting the best out of him, it's about him giving the best he has to gi
  4. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he will be under pressure to deliver trophies this season after spending large sums of money in the summer transfer market. The Reds have spent upwards of £170m on high-profile signings Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker. The German has yet to win silverware with the Reds and he acknowledges he is under pressure to end the club's barren spell, having lost three major finals during his time at Anfield. "I cannot give guarantees here but I understand if people think that. I know about the expectations and that is c
  5. Leicester City boss Claude Puel has urged Harry Maguire to remain at the King Power Stadium amid reported interest from Manchester United. The 25-year-old starred for England this summer, helping the Three Lions reach the semi-finals of the competition with a string of impressive performances in central defence. United boss Jose Mourinho is understood to be keen on bolstering his defensive options and has been linked with making a bid for Maguire. Indeed, the former Hull City man told The Sun that, though he is happy at Leicester, he is an ambitious player, and insists that all
  6. Leroy Sane has tipped Chelsea to pose the biggest threat to Manchester City's Premier League title defence next season. The Blues finished fifth last season, outside the Champions League places and 30 points adrift of Pep Guardiola's runaway champions. Chelsea have also had a chaotic summer, with the sacking of manager Antonio Conte not confirmed until after the start of pre-season training. Maurizio Sarri has succeeded Conte, and Sane saw enough from two matches against his Napoli side last season to think he will have a positive impact. "I think Chelsea [will be the bigge
  7. Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has laid into Mesut Ozil following his decision to stop playing for Germany, saying "he's been playing shit for years". The Arsenal midfielder announced on Sunday that he would "no longer be playing for Germany" after accusing German FA officials of racism. Ozil, who was born in Germany but has Turkish heritage, has been the subject of criticism in the nation after posing for a photograph with Turkish president Recep Erdogan before the World Cup. Germany went on to exit the tournament at the group stage, with Ozil being dropped for the second
  8. Jose Mourinho has criticised Manchester United by saying they "are not a team" yet following their 0-0 draw with San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday evening. The Portuguese coach was blase about his side's second consecutive draw on its United States tour, conceding it was "one more training session". With many of his best players missing the trip after World Cup commitments, Mourinho appeared content that the squad was able to get some practice in, if nothing else. "We are not a team. We're a group of players from different teams," he told MUTV after the game. "Some are first-
  9. Former England captain John Terry has denied reports of having retired from football. Reports on Sunday claimed the 37-year-old had decided to hang up his boots after leaving Aston Villa at the end of last season. Terry, who won 78 caps for England, spent one season in the Championship with Villa after spending 19 years as a player at Chelsea. But the former Blues and Three Lions skipper denied that was the case, saying he was "weighing up" his options. He said on Instagram: "Just to confirm I haven't retired. "I'm currently enjoying my holidays with my family and weig
  10. New Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac has stated that Renato Sanches is "top quality" and is "unfreezing" following a bad start to life at the Bundesliga club. Former Bayern assistant coach Paul Clement took Sanches on loan at Swansea last season and said it was clear that the "damaged" Golden Boy winner was struggling for confidence. However, under new boss Kovac, Sanches has appeared to find a new lease of life, his free kick inspiring Bayern Munich's fightback in a 3-1 win against Paris Saint-Germain in Saturday's pre-season friendly. "I'm pleased for Renato who hasn't had an
  11. Joe Hart has stressed that he would like to secure a permanent move away from Manchester City this summer instead of going on loan for a third consecutive season. The England international is back at the Etihad Stadium after loan spells at Torino and West Ham, but finds himself third choice behind Ederson and Claudio Bravo. City boss Pep Guardiola has said he wants to "find a solution" for Hart and the 31-year-old goalkeeper is keen to begin a new chapter in his career. "I need to go somewhere permanent, I think that's obvious," Hart, who missed out on selection for England's Wo
  12. Jurgen Klopp has defended Liverpool's transfer spending after signing goalkeeper Alisson for a world-record £67m. The Alisson deal took Liverpool's summer spending to more than £170m after Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri were also brought in and follows the £75m outlay on Virgil van Dijk in January. Two years ago, when Manchester United paid around £90m for Paul Pogba, the Liverpool manager insisted he would quit football if huge transfer fees became the norm. Speaking before Liverpool's opening International Champions Cup match against Borussia Dortmund in North Carolina o
  13. Naby Keita is convinced that Liverpool can compete with Manchester City for the Premier League title this season. The Guinean completed his move from RB Leipzig on July 1 after a deal was agreed between the clubs in August last year Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson have since joined the Reds and Keita believes his new side now has enough quality to mount a title challenge. Asked if he felt his new club have the quality of squad to compete with City this season, Keita said: "I know we have enough quality. "It's all about having the mindset and desire to want it and fight
  14. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has stressed that Leroy Sane must "move forward" after being left out of Germany's World Cup squad as the omission may "make him stronger". Sane vowed to return stronger following Joachim Low's decision not to take him to Russia, admitting his disappointment at not being included in the 23-man squad, who were eliminated at the group stages. Guardiola has challenged last season's PFA Young Player of the Year to prove his worth for both club and country by eclipsing the heights he reached in the previous campaign. "Leroy has to accept that this d
  15. Wales international goalkeeper Danny Ward has completed his move from Liverpool to Leicester for a reported £12.5m. The 25-year-old leaves Anfield after slipping to fourth choice following the arrival of Alisson for a record £66.8m from Roma. Ward, who has made four appearances for Wales but only managed three for Liverpool, has signed a four-year contract and the Reds have included a 20% sell-on clause in the deal. Speaking to LCFCTV after penning the deal, Ward said: "I'm delighted to be here and I'm really looking forward to the future with this football club. "I've come
