Sarri said that within two weeks the Belgian will be starting games and the questions about his future and the dubious prospect of a bid from Real Madrid seem to have faded away. I want to play and have the ball at my feet.
Hazard, Courtois, Luiz and Willian – 76ers meet Chelsea players
We have players who can do something magic. He is a great manager, like we had before. I know we need to improve things. I know we need to push the players to work, but for me, many positive things in the first match against Manchester City. As the Chelsea striker did all this, Mustafi was nominally in attendance but the German defender did not affect the outcome.

Chelsea had cut through Arsenal earlier for the first goal. It was a blistering move that went from Willian to their new midfielder Jorginho, who passed straight down the left channel to Alonso. His cutback was across the goal and taken first time by Pedro. Finally on 37 minutes Willian was hustled off the ball after Barkley, under pressure from Aubameyang, had given him a difficult pass. Iwobi was released down the left and this time Mkhitaryan met the cross sweetly. Before half-time the goalscorer crossed for Iwobi for the equaliser and in the final few minutes of the half Chelsea were in bits.

But as well as teams looking for ultimate glory, there are those for whom just being there is triumph in itself. Lebanon have qualified for their first ever Asian Cup, as have Yemen.

Palestine are about to play their second Asian Cup having exited at the group stage four years ago. Lumped in a group with Syria and Australia they could find it tough to make it to the second round.
Of the favorites South Korea will be buoyed by the brilliant form of Son Heung-min for Tottenham, and Australia, Iran and Japan will all fancy their chances. South Korea to win whole thing. Saudi Arabia to make the semis.
AFP Just one look at the second-round match-ups is enough to thrill anyone with a passing interest in football. Bayern Munich, Ajax vs. Real Madrid just three of eight mouth-watering ties.
The past three years have seen Real lift the trophy. What was significant about two of those titles was that Real were far from impressive domestically — the Champions League has become a competition more suited to Cup sides rather than those dominant over a season.
That may not bode well for Liverpool who are unbeaten in the Premier League and look in dominant form.
The Reds only just scraped into the last 16 and may find that their focus on capturing their first English top-flight title since gets in the way of European glory. Barcelona are looking good in La Liga but their brittle defense will put paid to any chances of a sixth European Cup.
This is as open a Champions League as we can remember. There are at least nine sides that have a reasonable chance of ultimate glory.
We cannot wait for it all to kick off. Juventus to claim a third title with the last four consisting of Manchester City, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund. Reigning champions Australia will believe they can put a terrible behind them and take a fifth world title on the home turf of their nemesis England, while South Africa will be hoping to claim a maiden World Cup victory.
