After Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea suffered their latest setback against Bournemouth on Saturday, a new perspective emerged on the internet about how Chelsea to become champions next year.
Instead of commenting the news, let’s just face the theory:
Chelsea will win the league next season 1. Chelsea 2. Derby 3. Nottingham Forest 4. Burnley
— TheSPORTbible (@TSBible) December 5, 2015
Of course it is about the Championship, and it seems that Chelsea actually do everything in order to get engaged in the relegation battle as much as it is possible. Chelsea to become champions in the English second-flyer looks funny know, but if they don’t change something in the coming months, it will become even stickier towards May. They are currently 201.00 (200/1) to relegate at the end of the season at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Though Mourinho was previously confirmed as the Blues manager until the end of the season, gambling news reported that if they would eliminate from the Champions League against Porto on Wednesday, Roman Abramovich would instantly sack his friend. Or let say, “Relieve him from his duties”.
The show started with Manchester City going down 2–0 at the Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent, where the hosts converted their first to shots through Marko Arnautovic. The Austrian winger also hit the post twice in the first half, so the Sky Blues actually lucky to start the second half with only two goals down. They were unable to recover, however.
Later on Saturday afternoon, Leicester City pulled out a confident, 3–0 win away at Swansea, thanks to a hat-trick from Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez. This helped Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester to climb back to the top of the Premier League table, stunning many experts of gambling facts. They are 26.00 (25/1) to win the league according to Bet365 Sportsbook.
Arsenal defeated Sunderland and though it wasn’t a surprise, this meant that two teams have passed City in the weekend, who fell back as down as third on the table. Still, Manuel Pellegrini’s men continue to be favourites to win the Premier League according to gambling news. Bet365 Sportsbook has the best offer for their success with online betting odds of 2.50 (3/2).
Their chances were boosted by Manchester United playing a goalless draw at home against West Ham United. Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils had only one shot on target during the 90 minutes and this stat speaks for itself. Jose Mourinho’s struggling Chelsea, increasingly getting involved in the relegation battle, suffered a 1–0 defeat at home to Bournemouth. Though Mourinho was previously confirmed as Chelsea manager until the end of the season, if it continues like this for them, his position might be reviewed even sooner…
To complete the list of crazy Premier League results, Liverpool suffered a 2–0 away defeat at Newcastle United, second bottom before the weekend. Just after Jürgen Klopp’s Reds were getting considered by more and more punters for the title – they are available for 10.00 (9/1) at Bet365 Sportsbook –, they came out with a performance. that was awful to watch. They might have been unlucky with the refereeing, but a defeat is all whet they deserved for their unimaginative display.
The holiday fixtures will expectedly bring an ever bigger mess, full of crazy Premier League results, and bettors should always consider the underdogs, especially when it’s about Premier League revelations like Leicester City and West Ham United.
There were some huge news stories that broke last week so lets quickly review some of the most important to his the headlines.
A terrorist attack on the luxury Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako, capital of Mali, left at least 19 dead last week. The dead included an American, an Israeli, three Chinese, six Russians, two Belgians and witnesses report numerous members of the hotel’s security staff were killed when the dozen or so attackers struck using a car featuring diplomatic plates. Both Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and al-Murabitoun claimed responsibility for the attack although authorities couldn’t confirm either claim.
Last week Anastasia Lin, the winner of Miss World Canada claimed she had been shut out of the finals of the Miss World contest by the hosts China for her outspoken stance on their record of human rights abuses and her defense of the Falun Gong who are deemed an illegal cult by the Chinese communist party. Without an official letter of invitation, which other finalists received in late October, she is unable to apply for the necessary visa. Miss World Canada said it would not provide a replacement.
A massive manhunt continued across Belgium last week as authorities sought the armed-and-dangerous Salah Abdeslam amidst intelligence reports that indicated an imminent threat of attack. Brussels, the capital, remained under lockdown for several days with residents told to avoid crowds, the city’s metro closed down and soldiers patrolling the streets. Many European capitals remain on a high state of alert following the attacks perpetrated in Paris on Friday the 13th that left 130 dead and hundreds injured.
In sport Chelsea took an hour to get the only goal scored in their Premier League fixture with Norwich giving them a much needed win in a week that saw Jose Mourinho claim that reaching the top of the table was “Mission Impossible” and that “Maybe Tom Cruise can do it, but it’s complicated.” Will the diminutive Hollywood star give up his career to manage the London side? You’ll have to read our daily news pages to find out, but in the meantime he’s a look at some of the big stories we covered last week.

Meanwhile an audience member on the long running BBC television show Question Time asked why the media continued to associate mainstream Islam with the militant terrorists in ISIS by calling them Islamic State (given they’re neither Islamic nor a state) saying “If I call myself a zebra do you them refer to me as a zebra?” Many experts encourage the use of the term Daesh instead a pronunciation of the acronym that also sounds uncannily like “a bigot who imposes his views on others” instead.
There was a mass of breaking news stories last week so let’s look back at some of the biggest that made the headlines over the last seven days
The heavy metal band “Goodbye to Gravity” on stage at the popular “Colectiv Club” in Bucharest, Romania, last week used pyrotechnic effects that ignited parts of the club causing a fire that swept through the venue.

Investigations into the cause of the Airbus 321’s crash continue.
The ruling AKP, Justice & Development Party, in Turkey gained back the majority in parliament it had lost back in June when elections were held last week. The AKP of current president Recep Tayyip Erdogan won 316 seats with 49.4% of the vote leaving main opposition party, the CHP, to garner only 25.4%. The HDP, a pro-Kurdish party, and the MHP, a nationalist party, both won enough of the vote to take their seats in the Ankara parliament, but overall the result was a big win for Erdogan’s government.
In sport the position of Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was once more called into question after his side lost against Liverpool 3-1 in the Premier League on Saturday, their sixth league defeat in 11 games. Although it is likely Mourinho will cling on for now just how much time can he have left if he can’t get results?

The book, a collection of short erotic stories by Pilar Quintana had been confused with the classic children’s fairy tale despite containing sexual and violent content. “I’m surprised people are shocked about the sexual content of the book.” Said the bemused author who went on to say he felt it was not inappropriate reading material for young people.

With 59 men, 8 women, 3 boys under ten and a baby girl of no more than two years of age, the group is likely to have traveled from Syria, Afghanistan or Iraq. Investigations by authorities into their deaths led to four arrests, three Bulgarians and an Afghan, in neighboring Hungary where the vehicle was registered.
Mohamed Fahmy, Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed, all employees of the news network Al-Jazeera were each sentenced to three years in jail last week accused by Egypt’s ruling military as having operated without a license, broadcasting false reports and colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood.

In sport Jose Mourinho’s 100th home league game in charge of Chelsea ended in defeat after Crystal Palace put two past the blues. Palace took the lead early in the second half through Sako with Falcao answering a quarter of an hour later but it was Ward who scored two minutes later to seal the win for Palace.

Raheem Sterling might exploit the Blues’ lack of full-backs in the Man City vs Chelsea game on Sunday.
The two teams expected to be involved in a title race will meet on Sunday. The most waited game of the Premier League’s second round will be the Man City vs Chelsea clash. Chelsea news were dominated by Jose Mourinho’s row with team doctor Eva Caneiro. All this secured an opportunity for the Special One to avert the attention from his workshop. Somewhere in a dark room a master plan for the Man City vs Chelsea game was being drafted.
Since Chelsea has only one natural full-back, the Blues’ defence might need some tinkering. The lack of quick, mobile defenders might forecast a big game for the hosts’ attackers like Sergio Aguero or Raheem Sterling. However, fans of live sports results expect Mourinho to cope with the lack of speed in his defence through organization and team effort in the Man City vs Chelsea game. Man City are 2.05 (21/20) favourites according to Bet365. Draw is available at 3.40 (12/5), while Chelsea’s success is priced at 3.50 (5/2).
The Sky Blues’ marquee signing from the summer, Raheem Sterling thinks that the Man City vs Chelsea weekend match will be vital for their campaign. Manuel Pellegrini’s team had a promising start on Monday against West Bromwich Albion. However, they will play arguably their toughest game of the season on Sunday aganist Jose Mourinho’s side.
Sterling said, “I’m hoping this one will go our way and it’s vital that it does. We’re on our own ground and with it being our first home game of the season, we want to get off on the right foot. I’ve done alright against them in the past and results-wise, I think it’s been pretty even overall so far in the matches I’ve played in. Chelsea are very strong in every department from their defence and midfield to their attack, but it should be a good game and I’m really looking forward to playing in this match.”
The former Liverpool forward, who cost GBP 49 million, as it was all over in the sports scores news this summer, expects a close battle. Sterling doubts that any team could be able this term to wrap up the league as quickly as Chelsea did last season. He argued, “It’s going to be a really tough season. Everyone has strengthened their squads and the Premier League is always hard to second guess.”
Sterling admitted in the build-up to the Man City vs Chelsea match that he has set some targets for himself ahead of the campaign. However, he doesn’t want to make them public to avoid extra pressure. He said, “The only promise I will make is that I will try my best at all times – I will aim to create and score as many goals as I can for the team and work really hard every week.”
He added, “I’ve set myself targets for goals and assists and I know where I want to be but I don’t really want to reveal what they are because I’ll put myself under massive pressure – but I’ve got personal goals that I want to reach this season for City and hopefully I can meet them.” Sterling is 3.50 (5/2) to score anytime in the Man City vs Chelsea match at Bet365. An unlikely but fabulous Sterling brace is available at 19.00 (18/1).
Apart from the suspended Thibaut Courtois, Jose Mourinho has a full squad before the Man City vs Chelsea clash, gambling news report. However, his squad is relatively short on defenders. To cope with the lightning-quick attackers of the Sky Bluese, the Portuguese might have to shuffle his cards a bit. Having only one true full-back, he might need to deploy Kurt Zouma in that position at some stage of the match.
Mourinho is without a natural left back after Brazilian Filipe Luis returned to Atletico Madrid. Hence his first choice number three is Cesar Azpilicueta, originally a right back. On the right side of the defense plays Branislav Ivanovic. The Serb is a natural central defender, but excelled at full-back in the past. However, he might have problems against an extremely rapid forward like Sterling. Therefore experts of gambling facts suggest a possible shake-up in the Blues’ backline before the Man City vs Chelsea match.
Zouma is originally a centre-back. However Mourinho used the Frenchman at right-back and at midfield as well already. In the Community Shield, he appeared as a left-back after replacing Azpilicueta. According to a possible scenario, Mourinho might field the more agile Spaniard on the right to deal with Sterling. So that Zouma could take his place on the left in the weekend’s Man City vs Chelsea game.
Zouma commented the speculations revealing, he doesn’t have a problem with the left back position. He said, “Because I’m right-footed I have never played at left-back. It was different for me positionally so I had to learn quickly and adapt to it. It’s really not a problem because the boss needed me in that position and I have to give everything for the team. We all have to think about the team first of all so I always do that.”
He added, “They were good experiences for me because I played the games and I always want to be on the pitch enjoying myself and helping the team. I’m feeling very well. I had some opportunities to play in preseason and play in some good games. Now the Premier League has started we are just focused on the next game. We are looking forward to it.”
He concluded, “It’s a chance early in the season to show why we are champions. We want to defend our title. The season after a very good season is always hard but we have to show we are ready to try and do it.” Sergio Aguero scoring two-goals against the makeshift, but capable Blues defense in the Man City vs Chelsea clash is available with odds of 6.5 (11/2) at Bet365. A clean sheet from the visitors is priced at 4.00 (3/1).
Jose Mourinho was heavily criticized after the Portuguese manager threatened Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro with loosing her matchday job.
The controversy erupted after the Chelsea medical staff entered the field to treat Eden Hazard in the last minutes of Chelsea’s season opener against Swansea. Hazard had to leave the pitch due to the treatment. Since Thibaut Courtois was sent off earlier, Chelsea was left with eight outfield players temporarily. Mourinho argued that Hazard wasn’t injured, just needed a rest. He also mentioned that the medical staff have to understand football. The Special One planned to expel the Chelsea doctor from the bench for matches.
However, he was heavily attacked by other sport physicians. They insisted that Chelsea doctor Carneiro displayed a proper approach, since the medics were called from the pitch. The match ended 2-2. After the disappointing result gambling blogs speculated that it was nothing more than Mourinho’s frustration erupted. Maybe he also wanted to use the controversy to avoid his team’s display to be criticized. Gambling news reported that Chelsea’s odds to retain the Premier League title fell back slightly. Now they are top underdogs according to Bet365, available at 3.00 (2/1).
Major sports physicians defended Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro. Their support came after Jose Mourinho revealed that he intended to drop her from the matchday staff. Carneiro learned on Tuesday that she won’t be on the Chelsea bench at games anymore. The sanctioning came after he and team physio Jon Fearn entered the pitch to treat Eden Hazard in the last minutes of Chelsea’s weekend draw against Swansea.
Mourinho said after the final whistle, “I was unhappy with my medical staff. They were impulsive and naive. Whether you are a kit man, doctor or secretary on the bench, you have to understand the game.” However, there is video evidence that the referee called the Chelsea doctors after the Belgian player went down, seemingly injured.
Recognized sports physician Peter Brukner was disappointed with Mourinho’s actions, online mobile news report. He said, “I thought it was appalling behaviour by the manager. He has a player who has gone down, who has remained down and the referee obviously considered it serious enough to summon on the doctor and the physio.”
He added, “They went on as they must do when they are summoned on and the player is down and, as a result, the player had to come off the ground. What do you expect the doctor to do? Just ignore the referee beckoning them on? The medical staff deserve a public apology and I’m very disappointed that the club hasn’t come out and done something to support them; they were just doing their job.”
Jose Mourinho criticized the Chelsea doctor for her actions in the title-holders’ draw against Swansea. That was followed by Eva Carneiro thanking the support of the public in a Facebook post. She wrote, “I would like to thank the general public for their overwhelming support. Really very much appreciated.”
According to Chelsea players however, this post was the real reason behind Mourinho banning the Chelsea doctor from the bench, sports scores news report. The Premier League Doctors’ Group reacted in a statement when learning about the sanctions towards Caneiro. They are concerned that results are more important in football than the players’ health.
The statement said, “The Premier League Doctor’s Group considers that removing Dr Eva Carneiro from the Chelsea team bench for their next match is unjust in the extreme. In the publicised incident in last Saturday’s game against Swansea, the Chelsea medical staff were clearly summoned on to the field of play by the match referee to attend to a player. A refusal to run onto the pitch would have breached the duty of care required of the medical team to their patient.”
It went on, “It is a huge concern that Dr Carneiro has been subjected to unprecedented media scrutiny and a change in her professional role, merely because she adhered to her code of professional conduct and did her job properly. Dr Carneiro has universal and total support from her medical colleagues at the Premier League Doctors Group. It is also of great concern that at a time when the both the Premier League and the Premier League Doctors group are intensifying efforts to safeguard player welfare, the precedent set by this incident demonstrates that the medical care of players appears to be secondary to the result of the game.”
The Wenger vs Mourinho feud is not letting up.
The Community Shield is hardly more than a well-covered friendly. Many of those preparing for the game were the most excited about the meeting of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho next to the sideline. Rather than the game itself.. Well, the two of them behaved well during the game this time. However, after the ceremony the Frenchman just avoided the Portuguese instead of shaking hands with him.
The Wenger vs Mourinho conflict is something that can add more spice to the Premier League title run. Especially if Arsenal, through performances like this one on Sunday, can produce a campaign that will see them fighting for the title.
FA Cup winners Arsenal won the Community Shield against Premier League champions Chelsea, gambling news report. The beautiful goal of Alex Oxlade-Champerlain was the difference between the two sides on Sunday. It was the first time ever that the Wenger vs Mourinho duel was won by the Frenchman.
Arsenal started the way they were playing in recent weeks. They looked sharp at the beginning, as many of those who follow latest gambling news expected. However, as Chelsea, fighting for the equalizer, raised the pace of the game, they had to defend. The Gunners performed attractive attacking play that seems to work even against sides with the quality of the Blues.
Oxlade-Chamberlain had a convincing day, winning his overall battle against his marker, Cesar Azpilicueta. The whole Arsenal team was well-organized in defense, protecting the lead effectively. If they can do this against their biggest rivals in the league season, they might have a shot at the title.
The Wenger vs Mourinho conflict continued on Sunday in the Community Shield match. This kind of hostile rivalry between title contenders is something that was missing from the English top-tier recently. Watching the game on Sunday suggest that the two will provide this, and Arsenal might have the potential to go for the title this year.
Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho just cannot stand each other it seems. When facing the other, they tend to behave childishly. That is a feature that appeared only in the last couple of years, though they met 14 times already. Yet this was the first occasion when the Frenchman was able to beat Mourinho’s Chelsea, as keen followers of live sports results probably know.
Arsenal now produced a performance that was similar to those that earned them a 2-0 away victory against then title-defenders Manchester City in February. That match indicated that the Gunners might become serious title challengers; however they weren’t able to maintain their form in the spring.
In the latest episode of the Wenger vs Mourinho soap opera, the Frenchman refused to shake his rival’s hand at the end of the Community Shield game. Arsenal won 1-0against Chelsea, but after the match, winning manager Arsene Wenger ignored Jose Mourinho, and the Portuguese did not forget to mention that to online mobile news reporters.
The Special One congratulated all the Arsenal players after the ceremony, however Wenger just avoided Mourinho. The Chelsea manager said, “You only miss me if you want to miss me and every Arsenal player came in my direction, which was the easiest thing to do because I was just there.”
He added, “If other people didn’t come in my direction, that is not a problem, not a story and not the end of the world. I did my job, the job that my club deserves me to do and the status as a manager when I lose any trophy.”
Radamel Falcao has an awful campaign behind him at Manchester United. That gig was the first for the Colombian after his serious injury that caused him to sit out the World Cup last summer. Many argue that he is no longer a world class striker, but some say that at least he deserves a chance at a team where he leads the attack and the others are there to supply him with chances. He failed to come up with a good performance in the first game of the Cafeteros at the Copa America, though it seems that this doesn’t bothers Mourinho. However, the fact that Chelsea preferred a loan deal to a permanent one is telling.
As Raheem Sterling is very likely to leave Liverpool this summer with his agent stating that the 20-year-old will not consider any contract offers from his current employer, another Premier League forward is about to start the new season at a rival team, according to online mobile news.
After a poor season at Old Trafford, Radamel Falcao is going to move to Stamford Bridge. AS Monaco loaned him to Manchester United for the last season with an option to buy him permanently, however after the Colombian striker totaled only four league goals in 26 outings for the Red Devils, Louis van Gaal opted not to retain his services.
A former Van Gaal protégé, Jose Mourinho however is ready to give him a chance at Chelsea, especially after Diego Costa is reportedly on the way out. Though Monaco wanted to sell the striker for good, Mourinho would prefer another loan deal.
Some might argue that to bring Radamel Falcao to Stamford Bridge is no better than playing online lottery gambling by Jose Mourinho. The Colombian spent a terrible 10-month-long loan spell at Old Trafford. Before that, he was rated as a world class striker and now he would not make for a decent one according to many of those who follow sports scores.
However, it is expected that he will come back way stronger at Chelsea, as Louis van Gaal’s United was never really set up in order to supply Falcao. The Colombian was basically a squad player at United, however he can function at his standards when he can act as the number one forward of the team.
Not to mention the second part of the season, when Van Gaal opted for a far more pragmatic approach and deployed Marouane Fellaini to help the attackers with his strength and height. Falcao was virtually redundant then, but Jose Mourinho is certainly the manager, who is able to bring out the best of his players. And at Chelsea, Falcao would play in front of Cesc Fabregas, which means that world class service is guaranteed.
With his future being in the balance, Radamel Falcao started the Copa America with a very modest performance. Colombia obviously had the quality to approach their opening game at the tournament as favorites, but Venezuela, stunning many followers of live sports results, managed to beat the Cafeteros through work and discipline.
Venezuela caused an upset in their last Copa opener as well, denying Brazil from scoring. That side reached the semis, and with most of the players still being in the squad, they have the potential to surprise fans around the world again. In the meantime, Colombia coach Jose Pekerman has a huge problem, as it seems that Falcao, his former superstar is ceased to be a world class striker.
Jose Mourinho stated that he will find the world class in Falcao next season, however, Pekerman should either find it sooner or get rid of him and use Jackson Martinez instead, who was Colombia’s only promising footballer against Venezuela in the first match, despite playing only a few minutes.
