Chelsea welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge for massive game in Premier League title race

Chelsea face Liverpool in a massive game in the Premier League title race on Sunday.

The Blues have slowed down at the top of the table in recent weeks and are now 11 points behind league leaders Manchester City after the champions returned to beat Arsenal on Saturday. Manager Thomas Tuchel has Covid and injury issues to work out with Reece James, the latest first-team star to be forced to sit on the sidelines. Of greater concern is Romelu Lukaku with the emergence of the striker’s controversial interview this week that cost him his place on the squad.

Jurgen Klopp has his own Covid issues with Alisson, Roberto Firmino and Joel Matip joining the manager himself for missing the game with suspected positive tests. The Reds will be desperate to get back on track after losing to Leicester the last time with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane set to feature for the last time before flying to the Africa Cup of Nations later this week.

At Friday’s press conference, Klopp did not disclose who tested positive but hinted that the cases would affect his opening XI for the Stamford Bridge game between second and third in the Premier League. “It’s not that cool right now,” Klopp said. “I’m not in a position to say who it is, but it will be pretty clear on the roster.”

Klopp’s assistant Pep Lijnders will lead the team in the critical match. Liverpool are one point behind second-placed Chelsea with one game less.

Sean Dyche “very confident” in Burnley’s hopes for survival https://lancsycs.org/sean-dyche-very-confident-in-burnleys-hopes-for-survival/ Fri, 31 Dec 2021 17:18:51 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/sean-dyche-very-confident-in-burnleys-hopes-for-survival/

Sean Dyche’s Burnley is 18th in the Premier League table (Martin Rickett / PA). (PA wire)

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is heading into 2022 feeling “very confident” about his team’s prospects in their attempt to avoid relegation.

After Thursday’s 3-1 loss to Manchester United, the Clarets sit 18th in the Premier League with 11 points and just one win in 16 games.

They are two points behind Watford, 17th, and five behind Leeds, 16th, with one and two games in hand respectively against these teams.

But Dyche, whose team traveled to Leeds on Sunday, said at a press conference when asked how confident he was Burnley could make a difference in the New Year: ” Very confident.

“Performance levels have been generally high. The details are so vital in any game, and the margins. Obviously we need to change that, but the mentality is still just as firm.

“Historically, we have been strong in the second half of the season. I think there is a good belief in what we’re doing and that the players know how close we are to getting it right. So that bodes well, but the most important fact that you will need is to look at this table and your position, and we need to correct that part.

Thursday’s game was Burnley’s first since December 12, after postponing games against Watford, Aston Villa and Everton due to opposition unavailability amid positive coronavirus cases.

Dyche said of the postponement process: “It’s not about whether I’m happy or not, it’s the powers that be making the decisions. The Premier League is the one in control, so it will be on their shoulders regardless of how they make decisions on why games are called off. Their drum is the beat we all dance to.

Dyche believes there could be fewer postponements if players were allowed to work solo on the training grounds while remaining isolated.

He said: “That’s what we put on the Zoom call with the Premier League… how it affects the footballers we know at our club, and I’ve heard from a number of different people in the game, was very, very minimal.

“So we provide the option, if it’s minimal, to bring in these players once they feel good – with the amount of surveillance we have now available, could it be that these players are coming in?

“Because if we keep canceling games, at least players with a lockout period could get into their own cars, their own clothes, they stay away from everyone but at a distance you can still monitor their load from. work, we could still feed from their GPS, from their heart monitors, from how their body is responding.

“Therefore, in theory, when that player is now required, after the seven day period and clear testing is over, then at least they would be ready to come back. As it stands, not be allowed to get in at all, so it’s hard. They have to find a way, usually on a Wattbike or something, to turn the page. It’s not the same as being on the grass and to run.

“Maybe the ripple effect could in theory be that fewer games are called off… maybe that would help more players to be available when they come back.

“But we’ll have to wait and see. These are just views a few of us shared on a Zoom call. The Premier League, the medical side, they have all the information – it’s up to them, and of course guided by the central government. “

Nick Pope, Jay Rodriguez, Josh Brownhill and Kevin Long missed Thursday’s competition following positive Covid-19 tests – Long has resumed training and Burnley is waiting to see if Pope and Rodriguez can, while Brownhill is still unable to do so. Maxwel Cornet could return to action in Sunday’s game after a thigh problem and a positive test.

Star man Maxwel Cornet determined to build on ‘dream start’ at Burnley https://lancsycs.org/star-man-maxwel-cornet-determined-to-build-on-dream-start-at-burnley/ Thu, 30 Dec 2021 06:33:03 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/star-man-maxwel-cornet-determined-to-build-on-dream-start-at-burnley/
Burnley’s Maxwel Cornet celebrates after scoring his team’s opening goal in the Premier League match between Southampton and Burnley at St Mary’s Stadium on 23 October 2021 in Southampton, England.

The 25-year-old didn’t take long to find his feet in the Premier League after leaving Lyon at the end of August.

The Ivorian hasn’t looked back since his home introduction to Arsenal when he replaced Johann Berg Gudmundsson in the second half.

“I am very happy to be here,” he said. “It’s really a dream start for me. It’s amazing to be a key part of the team from the start.

Burnley’s Maxwel Cornet celebrates with his teammates after scoring their team’s second goal during the Premier League match between Leicester City and Burnley at the King Power Stadium on September 25th 2021 in Leicester, England.

“I have to do all I can to keep it this way.

“I love the atmosphere and the welcome the crowd gave me when I arrived and I’m very grateful for that. That’s why I try to give my all in every game.”

Only Liverpool’s Mo Salah (all 112.9) has a better return in minutes per goal than Cornet (113.8) in the top flight this season when you consider players who have made five or more starts.

The forward, whose transfer was confirmed ahead of the Clarets’ home game against Leeds United, marked his first start with his first goal in English football.

The club’s joint record purchase, which had been pursued by Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin, marked the first game against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium with a wonderful first time.

He would score four more times in his next five league games. Cornet said: “It was an incredible moment; to score in the Premier League was incredible.

“It was a Vydra ball on the right, I hit it the first time without thinking and it was awesome.

“I try to prepare as best as possible for the game every weekend so that I can do my best every game. I’m very happy.”

The Ivorian international admits he is enjoying the freedom he has been granted since leaving Ligue 1.

Cornet, who received a red card in his last appearance in France, had played a much more defensive role under Rudi Garcia.

However, he left with 51 goals in 232 matches in all competitions for the seven-time champion of France.

“It’s completely different because in Lyon they played me left-back,” said Cornet. “Here I’m a forward, which is a position I’ve known for a long time. It’s easier for me to get into attacking positions and score a lot more goals.

“The coach [Sean Dyche] really puts me at ease, he gives me the freedom to express myself at the top, while working hard for the team.

“Even though everything is not perfect yet, I’m working on it. I try to understand the movement of my teammates, something that they enjoy, so that I can put them in the best possible positions and they can do the same for me.

“It’s a good sign for the future, so we stay humble and keep working hard.”

Gary Neville shares Burnley fears as expert delivers verdict at Newcastle United and Leeds United https://lancsycs.org/gary-neville-shares-burnley-fears-as-expert-delivers-verdict-at-newcastle-united-and-leeds-united/ Tue, 28 Dec 2021 11:28:53 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/gary-neville-shares-burnley-fears-as-expert-delivers-verdict-at-newcastle-united-and-leeds-united/

Gary Neville admits he fears for Burnley’s chances of survival in the Premier League, but still believes the Clarets could pull off an act of survival.

Sean Dyche’s side are in the last three ahead of Thursday’s game at Manchester United, but after seeing their last three games canceled due to Covid outbreaks in opposition camps, the Clarets have games in hand on all sides.

Burnley managed only one win in his first 15 games, but produced a decent performance and Neville says he “trusts” Dyche’s men in the fight to beat gout.

But his concern for the Clarets comes from the division’s high level overall and the improvements made by teams around Burnley in the table.

“He’s the most worried I’ve ever been about Burnley,” said Neville, speaking on Monday Night Football.

“Not because Burnley has regressed, it’s just that I think the quality of the league is so good.

“If Newcastle and Leeds play to the level that I think they can do, I think Burnley could be in serious trouble.

“The reason I said I think Burnley will survive is because I trust them more in terms of consistency than others.

“Leeds and Newcastle both worry me. Leeds are flaky, they’re fluffy and I know they have injuries but they’re a little flaky. If they get (Patrick) Bamford, Kalvin Phillips and the rest of them, they should be fine.

“Newcastle continue to point to the January transfer window as if this is going to be a magical moment – they are still going to have a lot to do.

“Burnley, I said (I’ll stay standing) just because I trust them and they already have. But I’m more worried about Burnley than I ever have been because the quality of the league is the best I have ever seen. “

Leeds United return dates, training plan and Burnley fight after efforts to save Aston Villa game https://lancsycs.org/leeds-united-return-dates-training-plan-and-burnley-fight-after-efforts-to-save-aston-villa-game/ Sun, 26 Dec 2021 16:16:01 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/leeds-united-return-dates-training-plan-and-burnley-fight-after-efforts-to-save-aston-villa-game/

Leeds United’s postponements of consecutive games have not dampened hopes that 2022 will start at the first opportunity on the pitch for Whites.

As 2021 ends in a 4-1 loss to Arsenal, Burnley’s planned trip to Elland Road will hopefully prove to be the starting point of the footballing year for Leeds.

After an injury crisis unprecedented in Marcelo Bielsa’s time earlier this month, a Covid outbreak has claimed enough players to satisfy the Premier League that they cannot field a competitive roster.

With Liverpool’s postponement confirmed, there was little hope for the Aston Villa clash planned for Elland Road two days later.

However, with a week now to prepare and periods of isolation over, Burnley’s visit to West Yorkshire looks upbeat.

In the three days between the postponement announcements, there have been no new cases of Covid among gamers, but three new positive tests among backstage staff, it’s understood.

It is understood that Thorp Arch reopened this afternoon for players who are fit to train, which at least puts the groundwork in place for the team to start preparing properly for the Clarets.

Existing players with Covid will complete their isolation periods in good time ahead of Burnley’s game, further emboldening hopes that Leeds will meet the demands of the day’s squad.

There had even been efforts to move the game forward with Villa, with a special dispensation for some players to train safely in Thorp Arch over the past few days, but it turned out to be too big an order to get. enough of the list fit and ready.

Premier League: Burnley-Everton Boxing Day match postponed https://lancsycs.org/premier-league-burnley-everton-boxing-day-match-postponed/ Fri, 24 Dec 2021 15:45:57 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/premier-league-burnley-everton-boxing-day-match-postponed/

London, December 24 (IANS): Everton’s Boxing Day match at Burnley has been postponed due to Covid-19 cases and injuries at the club, the Premier League announced on Friday. Everton had made an initial request to postpone the game but this was turned down despite head coach Rafael Benitez claiming he only had nine fit players for the game.

Everton confirmed the development on Friday, saying: “Our Premier League game at Burnley on Boxing Day has been postponed due to the number of Covid-19 cases and injuries in our squad.”

The Premier League said they took the “regrettable” decision to postpone the game following a board meeting on Friday.

“The board today considered the club’s request to postpone the game following further injuries to their team,” the Premier League said in a statement.

“The club will not be able to complete their game this weekend due to an insufficient number of players available to play due to cases of Covid-19 and injuries.”

Benitez said on Thursday he was “surprised” the game went ahead, after two matches – Liverpool against Leeds and Wolves against Watford – were postponed due to Covid cases.

Liverpool’s clash with Leeds and Watford’s trip to Wolves, also scheduled for Sunday, had already been postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak.

A total of 13 games have now been called off in the past two weeks as Britain battles a record number of positive Covid cases due to the Omicron variant of the virus.

‘Yet another wasted Christmas’ – Burnley restaurant owner says lack of clarity is killing hospitality industry https://lancsycs.org/yet-another-wasted-christmas-burnley-restaurant-owner-says-lack-of-clarity-is-killing-hospitality-industry/ Wed, 22 Dec 2021 18:10:33 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/yet-another-wasted-christmas-burnley-restaurant-owner-says-lack-of-clarity-is-killing-hospitality-industry/

Ibby Ali, who runs the Indian restaurant Usha in Rossendale Road, was hoping for a well-deserved Christmas boost but now faces yet another festive disaster with fears over the Omicron surge compounded by what he believes to be a devastating lack of leadership on the part of the government.

“Two weeks ago, we were pretty happy, everything was fine,” he told the Express. “When we got a phone call it was either a take out or a reservation, now it’s for a cancellation. All the big holidays around Christmas, the working holidays; they all canceled. And now a third of Christmas Day reservations are gone.

Usha Indian Restaurant, Burnley.

“The hype around Christmas has completely died down. Boris promised us a Christmas last year, and yes he may have delivered one to us this year but it is a second-hand Christmas.

“Even today is Wednesday; it’s one of our busiest days even when it’s not Christmas, because of the deals we have. And today we have about 20 people reserved, which is nothing compared to even a normal Wednesday. ”

Ibby expects further cancellations on Christmas Day and has said he tries not to worry too much about the restrictions he says will be announced in a few days.

“We know something is going to happen after Christmas Day. Everyone knows it, they know it. But we have to go on as usual. We still have to order the food, the alcohol, sort the staff turnover. If we only have 50 people eating with us on Christmas Day, instead of 300, it costs us the same.

“I would rather they shut down and support us financially. At least then we would know what was going on. The management was horrible. They did the same damage to our industry, but without using the word ‘foreclosure’, so that they don’t have to support us properly. They do say to keep your doors open, but no one is going.

“People are worried, they are suspicious of what’s going to happen, and I understand that. In this country, people are very rule-abiding people, that’s how they are. is said by the government, or government officials, we tend to follow. At the end of the day we put them there to guide us. So, now they told people to “be careful” and c ‘is what people do. Problem is, it hits restaurants hard on us. “

What he cannot understand is why he has spent so much time, effort and money securing his premises against Covid, only for the government to treat restaurants, bars and nightclubs this way.

“It always seems like the first places to be attacked – I don’t know what other word to use – are hospitality and recreation. It feels like they’re targeting certain industries, where people are going to have fun. . People need our businesses, and we need people. This is our livelihood that we are talking about.

“These support packages – the one now at £ 6,000 – that aren’t going to do anything. We’re going to lose a lot more than that because of the way they’ve done it. Nothing stops for us. Our daily costs, our VAT returns; everything continues. “

Ibby is expected to look forward to Usha’s 20th birthday in February, but is now afraid of what the future holds.

“That scares me. How long can this last? It’s not just my restaurant. It’s all restaurants and bars and nightclubs. We just want normality, or the process properly run; that’s whatever we ask. “

Leeds United’s troubles give Burnley hope in Premier League fight for survival https://lancsycs.org/leeds-uniteds-troubles-give-burnley-hope-in-premier-league-fight-for-survival/ Sun, 19 Dec 2021 15:24:30 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/leeds-uniteds-troubles-give-burnley-hope-in-premier-league-fight-for-survival/

Burnley may have been out in the last two Premier League games but they haven’t lost ground to their relegation rivals heading into Christmas.

Sean Dyche’s side were due to face Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon until the game was postponed after a Covid-19 outbreak at Bodymoor Heath meant Steven Gerrard’s outfit was unable to fill the game.

This is the second consecutive contest the Clarets have seen postponed after their meeting with Watford on Wednesday was called off hours before kick-off due to a number of positive Covid-19 cases in their squad.

At this point in the campaign you would much prefer to have points on the board, but the postponement of matches against Watford and Villa means Burnley has matches in hand on all the teams around them in the standings.

Leeds United, who are five points ahead of the Clarets, have now made three more appearances and are in miserable form heading into Christmas season.

The Whites were largely beaten by Arsenal at Elland Road on Saturday night as a brace from Gabriel Martinelli and goals from England duo Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe doomed Marcelo Bielsa’s side to a third consecutive league loss.

This means Leeds have conceded 14 goals in their last three games following their 7-0 midweek loss to Manchester City and the pressure is mounting on their Chilean manager.

Cries for Bielsa to be more tactically pragmatic have escalated as Leeds heal an alarming injury crisis with a dozen first-team players out of action. Leeds could make a stroke of luck when it comes to players returning from injury – their bench against Arsenal was made up entirely of members of their Under-23 and Under-18 teams, including Archie Gray, 15 – while the january window could be crucial given the need to add depth to the squad.

But with their injury crisis showing little sign of abating so far, it gives Burnley an opportunity to cut the points deficit and bring them back – if the games can continue through the holiday season, of course.

The Clarets face Leeds in their first game of the New Year and that could be a crucial part of the Premier League’s relegation landscape.

If their injury issues continue to plague them, Burnley has an opportunity to gain ground over those above them.

Burnley Library closed for ‘green’ upgrades https://lancsycs.org/burnley-library-closed-for-green-upgrades/ Fri, 17 Dec 2021 18:00:00 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/burnley-library-closed-for-green-upgrades/ BURNLEY Coal Clough Library closed until spring for green upgrades and essential maintenance.

The work will include installing measures to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings and repairing roofs.

These measures include converting traditional lighting to LED, installing aerothermal heat pumps to replace current heating systems and installing solar panels on the roof.

The upgrades will reduce CO2 emissions at Coal Clough Library by 6.3 tonnes per year.

It will remain closed until the upgrades are completed in the spring of next year.

Books can be returned to any other Lancashire library, renewed in person, by phone or online during this time.

Burnley Central Library is the closest alternative library for Coal Clough customers.

Cllr Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council Cultural Services Cabinet Member, said: ‘We apologize for any inconvenience these temporary closures may cause.

“It is crucial to maintain the roofs of these buildings and make them more environmentally friendly.

“A lot of work needs to be done on the improvements and it would be too risky for safety to leave them open to the public while they are being done.

“We have increased borrowing limits and removed fines from these libraries while they are closed.”
