Tottenham vs Chelsea Match Report 2017

Marcos Alonso scored a late goal for Chelsea as Tottenham Hotspur started their home campaign with a disappointing defeat at Wembley. The Blues’s new £60m striker Alvaro Morata missed an easy headed chance in the early minutes before Alonso’s perfectly delivered free-kick gave Antonio Conte’s side the lead after 24 minutes.

Spurs then responded strongly with Harry Kane hitting the post and it looked like they had earned a point when Chelsea substitute Michy Batshuayi headed Christian Eriksen’s free-kick into his own net with eight minutes left.

The Blues had also had their chances, with Willian hitting the upright, and showed their trademark strength of character to secure all three points late in the game. On 88 minutes, Alonso snatched a second half winner, which Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris will feel that he should have saved.

Swansea City vs Manchester United Match Report 2017

Manchester United claimed their second consecutive 4-0 victory as Swansea City suffered a thumping defeat at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday. Eric Bailly put Manchester United in front with his first goal in the first half, during which the home side had defended very well. It was not until the final 10 minutes that the visitors gave the scoreline , with Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial all scoring goals in the space of four minutes.

Swansea City player Gylfi Sigurdsson was sorely missed. Gylfi Sigurdsson who had left Everton on Wednesday in a deal worth a reported £45million following drawn-out negotiations between the two clubs. Jordan Ayew clipped the crossbar early on but that was one of only six attempts by Swansea with one of these being on target.

Romelu Lukaku then poked wide after United embarked on a rapid counter-attack, before Phil Jones headed against the woodwork from a Juan Mata free-kick which he felt should have been done better. Lukaku then opened the floodgates when he found space in the box to direct a considered shot beyond Fabianski in the 80th minute, before Paul Pogba who survived calls for a second yellow card during the first half – lifted a delicate chip over the Poland international. Substitute Anthony Martial then finished the job, cutting inside Mawson to slot home United’s fourth. Continue reading “Swansea City vs Manchester United Match Report 2017”
