Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas destroys a trash talking Man Utd fan on Instagram after Spurs triumph

Chelsea’s 4-2 victory in the semi-finals of the FA Cup was a welcome sign for the Stamford Bridge faithful, who got quite the result despite not dominating throughout the 90 minutes. The fact that they chose to keep game-changers like Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas on the bench had something to do with that.

Nevertheless, the three players eventually came on in the second half and all had impacts; Fabregas shored up the midfield a bit more, whilst Costa provided the kind of movement Batshuayi hadn’t for most of the game. And it was Hazard’s superb goal and assist that won the game for the Blues.

Amusingly, it was Cesc Fabregas who was destroying fools off the field. Posting on Instagram to celebrate the win, the Spaniard wrote: “Another Final. Now time to focus on the league. Thanks for the amazing support yesterday!” and was asked a particularly stupid question by a Manchester United fan.

Fabregas then proceeded to shut him down with an epic reply that probably had the fan reaching for water to apply on the burned area.

Rangers Martyn Waghorn went on the most embarrassing run during the 2-0 loss to Celtic

Despite having a new manager at the helm to reignite winning form, Rangers still haven’t been able to do one thing they would have wanted to do the most: beat Celtic FC.

Celtic took a step closer to a domestic treble after managing to pull off a comfortable 2-0 win over Rangers in the semi-final round of the Scottish Cup today.

The comfortable victory for Brendan Rodgers was secured with a Callum McGregor strike and a Scott Sinclair penalty.

The Ibrox side were outclassed for most parts of the game and threatened only in its dying moments, which too wasn’t enough to manage even a consolation goal.

And as a testament to everything that went wrong for Rangers, watch Martyn Waghorn’s embarrassing failure of a run along the flank during a moment in the game –




Leeds fans still don’t know what went wrong with the goal that was disallowed against Burton Albion yesterday (Tweets)

Having dropped out of the top six, Leeds United saw their promotion hopes all but fade away as they fell to a shock 2-1 defeat away at Burton Albion on Saturday.

The result saw Burton all but secure Championship status for another season while inflicting another severe blow on an under par Leeds United who have now lost four in their last six games.

The match could have been an altogether different story had Chris Wood’s header in the 10th minute stood for goal. Yet in what came as a bizarre referring decision, referee Darren Bond disallowed the goal for no apparent reason prompting some furious reactions from the Leeds players and fans alike.

One look at the goal below and the frustrations of the Leeds faithful are more than justified with the header being a perfectly valid goal. Check out the reactions from the Leeds fans here –

James Collins showed he’s a Hammer for life with this gesture towards the fans post West Ham 0-0 Everton (Video)

The Premier League encounter between West Ham United and Everton ended 0-0 and the match was pretty much about as dull as it sounds. The first shot of the game came from the Hammers in the 30th minute; meanwhile, Everton’s first shot of the game came in the 70th minute.

Ronald Koeman’s men have been enduring something of a barren spell away from home, winning only two out of their last thirteen away games. Still, this result was undoubtedly a better one for the Hammers, who are now inching closer to Premier League safety for at least another season.

Even then, the game wouldn’t have been easy for Hammers fans to watch. However, James Collins made sure to go over and thank the fans in a way only he can – by taking off his shirt, climbing into the crowd and then handing it to a lucky fan before posing with them for some photos.

Nathan Ake channeled his inner Carvalho with an inch perfect tackle on Dele Alli for Chelsea yesterday (Video)

Chelsea’s win over Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final proved that there is still some fight left in Antonio Conte’s men. The Blues had been on a bit of a downward slump of form, losing two games out of four but showed just why they’re favourites to win the league this season.

However, the win wasn’t a dominating one, at least from a possession and chances created perspective. Spurs dominated in both fronts, meaning Chelsea were on the back foot for long stretches of the match. This required them to remain focused at all times and do some good defending.

One such instance was when Nathan Ake had to take on Dele Alli. The young Dutchman was handed a surprise start due to the absence of Gary Cahill and showed just why the manager rates him so highly, launching into a tackle from behind on Alli inside the penalty area yet pulling it off to absolute perfection.

See the perfectly executed Ricardo Carvalho-esque tackle from Ake here:




(Video) Mad man Eric Bailly with some next level defending during Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Burnley

Everything went right for Manchester United when they took the trip to Turf Moor to beat Burnley 2-0 today.

Injury concerns of star striker Zlatan Ibrahimović were cast aside and overshadowed by goals from Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney.

Rooney got his first start in a long time and did not fail to impress with his 39th minute goal, before Martial put United ahead just after the 20th minute mark.

Desperate to make a push for a top-four finish, Jose Mourinho’s men appeared very disciplined and exuberated great fighting spirit right since the first minute.

And as evidence of United’s determination to fight for every chance, watch defender Eric Bailly put up an incredible display of defending in a moment during the game –




Cesc Fabregas’ hilarious Snapchat with fellow Spaniards in the Chelsea dressing room post Spurs win (Video)

Chelsea had a lot to celebrate last night – they pulled off a great 4-2 victory over Tottenham to reach the final of FA Cup while also perhaps gaining a psychological edge over their closest rivals in the league as they attempt to preserve their 4 point lead at the top in the lead up to the season’s climax.

There was always going to be more than just a berth in the May showpiece on the line and ultimately Chelsea’s ability to close a game proved superior to Spurs’ dynamic game.

Cesc Fabregas took to Snapchat to celebrate his side’s win with an uber-cool filter as his fellow Spaniards Pedro and Marcos Alonso also joined in. The trio looked to be enjoying the moment, and the Chelsea faithful will be hoping for similar scenes soon enough – with the addition of two shiny trophies to the scene to look forward to.

Liverpool sponsors New Balance produce a goosebumps inducing advert featuring Jurgen Klopp (Video)

Being a football manager is an enormous task. Attempting to strike a balance within a squad, catering to demands of board members as well as fans and all while trying to deal with injuries, bad form and a whole gamut of factors which will upset even the most meticulous planning – all while trying to achieve some measure of success, of course.

It is, however, still a postion of privilege and honour – which is exactly what Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reflects on in the latest advertisement from sponsor New Balance.

In the form of a letter to his future self, Klopp addresses the journey that he has undertaken in all his years to reach the stature he currently possess – all the moments of euphoria tempered by the pain of defeat. He speaks of having to deal with critics, trials and tribulations in perservering, while also paying tribute to all those who have fought alongside him and supported his cause.

The brilliantly conceived video also touches on the spirit of football as it transforms “strangers into a team. A team into a band of brothers”. It is an absolutely majestic piece which comes straight from the heart and will resonate with football fans across club divisions and casual viewers alike. New Balance have got it absolutely spot on with this latest promo – it is goosebump inducing.
