  • FEELING BLUE

    Timo Werner has admitted his guilt over Frank Lampard getting the Chelsea sack.

    Werner, 24, scored once and provided three assists in 19 matches – a miserable return that contributed to Lampard’s sacking last month.

    And he revealed he feels ‘guilty’ over club legend Lampard getting the axe as Chelsea prepare to take on Manchester United today.

    The £47.5million forward said: “When you come here to play as a striker and be the man to score the goals, of course I felt a little bit guilty that I missed so many chances.

    “For the club, for the old manager but also for me because I want to score all the time and as much as I possibly can.

    “Of course, if I’d scored four or five more goals maybe the old manager would still be here because we’d maybe have won two or three games more but you can’t look too much into the past because there are too many games ahead of us. The past was like this and of course I feel a little bit guilty, but in football you have to go on.

  • AW-FUL

    Earlier today, Fulham fluffed a flurry of second-half chances to miss the opportunity to move within a point of Newcastle.

    Scott Parker’s side dominated after the break and went close through Joachim Andersen and Josh Maja in particular.

    But they could not find a way through against old boss Roy Hodgson and had to settle for a draw.

    It did move them a point closer to safety – but to within three of Steve Bruce’s three rather than the one the West Londoners were hoping for.

    Given both sides’ pragmatism, this was never going to be a classic. But the first half was a shocker with only two Andersen headers off target producing anything of any note.

    Parker knew he had to go for it and brought on the more attacking Antonee Robinson for Ola Aina at the break. It sparked a half of dominance full of chances for the visitors – but ultimately none that they could take.

  • HALF-TIME!

    It's virtually all over at Tottenham.

    Burnley have been terrible and Spurs have been clinical.

    Not all doom and gloom in North London after all... if they hold on...

  • GOOOOALLL - MOURA!

    Tottenham 3 - 0 Burnley

    And they've got another one!

    The Clarets are are falling to bits!

    Lovely finish from the Brazilian after a straightforward cross from the left.

  • SPUR-FECT START

    Well that didn't take long.

    Tottenham took just 15 minutes to take a two-goal lead at home to Burnley.

    Gareth Bale got the first one after just two minutes before Harry Kane struck the second after quarter of an hour.

  • SEEING RED

    Jamie Redknapp and Roy Keane went toe-to-toe on Super Sunday ahead of Tottenham's game against Burnley.

    The two got into a heated row about the quality of Spurs' squad - specifically the talent in their back-four.

  • FOR FOX SAKE

    Leicester were nowhere near their best as they were 'out-Leicester'ed' by Mikel Arteta's Arsenal.

  • FULL TIME!

    Leicester 1 - 3 Arsenal

  • WOUNDED PRIDE

    Referee Lee Mason has withdrawn from Sheffield United's game against Liverpool with injury.

    This comes the day after Mason was lambasted for his 'horrendous' decision against Brighton in their defeat to West Brom. Mason was expected to be the fourth official at Bramall Lane but he has been replaced by John Brooks due to a muscle injury.

    The ref changed his mind twice over the Lewis Dunk's equaliser for Brighton before eventually disallowing the effort in a farcical saga. The confusion began when Dunk took a free-kick from 20 yards quickly, catching out goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

    Dunk was convinced that Mason had blown the whistle for the kick to be taken, arguing his case with the official. Mason awarded the goal but West Brom captain Kyle Bartley pleaded his case insisting that the set-piece was taken too quickly.

    VAR eventually intervened, instructing Mason not to give the goal.

    Dunk told Sky Sports: “It’s embarrassing. It’s a horrendous decision, I said to the ref can I take it, he blew his whistle and I took it."

  • READY FOR KICK-OFF!

    Leicester and Arsenal are about to kick-off at the King Power.

  • ROD AND RON TO ADD TO BROOD

    Georgina Rodriguez has admitted she and her partner Cristiano Ronaldo are looking forward to child number five.

    The Spanish beauty has a three-year-old daughter called Alana Martina with the Juventus striker and is the day-to-day mum of his twins Eva and Mateo, four in June, and eldest son Cristianinho, ten.

    She has put out mixed messages about wanting more children over the past three years.

    But the 27-year-old model and influencer made it clear a new addition to the family is just a matter of time in an interview with Spanish magazine InStyle.

    She said: “We would love to be parents again. But let it happen when it happens.

    “Every day with Cris is a gift. We are very happy.”

  • HAART OF THE MATTER

    Man City are well and truly in the race to sign Erling Haaland this summer despite Pep Guardiola's 'toxic' relationship with Mino Raiola, according to reports.

    Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland is the hottest property in Europe and the continent's elite clubs are queuing up to land him.

    But he is represented by Raiola - who fell out with Guardiola over his treatment of Zlatan at Barcelona - which could be a problem.

    However, the Mirror cite a City source as saying: "There have been dealings with Mino Raiola in the past and if he represents a player we are interested in, it won't be an issue.

    “An example of how these things work happened a few years ago when there was an exchange of views between Pep and Yaya Toure's agent (Dimitri Seluk).

    “That didn't prevent Yaya from signing a new contract to stay with the club. Personal issues don't dictate what is best for the club.”

  • TRIED REALLY VARD

    Arsenal travel to Leicester today and Mikel Arteta will be trying to keep Jamie Vardy quiet.

    But it could have been Brendan Rodgers doing the worrying if the striker had moved to Arsenal for £20million in the summer of 2016.

    The Englishman instead decided to stay with the Foxes.

    And here ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger reveals he offered Vardy 'lots of money' to join the North Londoners.

  • TORR BLIMEY

    Fernando Torres could soon be known as the Incredible Hulk rather than El Nino as he continues to dramatically transform his body.

    The former Chelsea and Liverpool forward, 36, called time on his illustrious playing career 18 months ago.

    Known for his lightning pace, the Spaniard won everything in the game at both club and international level.

    However, he may well have eyes on adding more accolades to his incredible collection of honours via bodybuilding.

    And few would not back him to do so if he wishes as he continues his stunning physical evolution from nimble striker to hench hitman.
