Willian is Chelsea's main man ahead of Barca showdown

Marcos Alonso was full of praise for former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique

The forward was unhappy at starting as a "false nine" against Manchester City last Sunday, saying: "For me personally, it's hard to play a good game when you only touch the ball three times".

Conte says his situation contrasted with the present one involving Hazard, whom the Italian has previously told to be more selfish and ruthless in front of goal.

After four losses in the previous five Premier League games, Conte was relieved with a victory which comes ahead of a critical week of the season, with the trip to Barcelona followed by the FA Cup quarter-final at Leicester.

Turkish-backed rebels advance on Kurdish-held Syrian town
Abdel Rahman said that the advance sparked "major concerns" for tens of thousands of civilians in the town of Afrin. The operation, which concluded in March 2017, was meant to clear terrorists from areas of Syria bordering Turkey.

"Our confidence, for sure, when you lose many games in a row it is not simple". "For sure when you have so many chances it is important to be clinical, but we must be pleased with the performance of the team and prepare for Barcelona".

It is one thing for a team such as Newcastle to attempt to keep the score down against top sides in the hope of a favorable goal difference at the end of the season but if the defending champions are now at it the game has obviously gone.

The Parisian outfit's project has always been to win the Champions League title, having largely dominated Ligue 1 since the Qatari takeover in 2011. United are also encouraged by the knowledge defensive tactics have already worn down Tottenham and Chelsea at Old Trafford and Mourinho will doubtless want to see if he can pressure Liverpool into a mistake. And then, in the next game, I didn't play. Maybe I can take different decisions.

Goldman Sachs boss Blankfein 'planning to exit' as early as year-end
Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which received nearly universal praise from Wall St. executives, including Blankfein. Cohn resigned his position at the White House earlier this week and is not expected to return to Goldman.

Conte stressed he will continue to make tactical decisions as he sees fit and will deal with any issues his players may have in private, rather that through the press. Olivier, he played against West Brom from the start, and played against Hull, and then came on in every game, I think.

"It would be very important to get three points tomorrow".

"After training, the club called me". He killed me in a bad way, not in a soft way. "I was on the bench against Piacenza". "Top, cream of the crop, he's unbelievable", United manager Jose Mourinho said after his side's win over Chelsea two weeks ago. "But don't forget you are talking about a team with many players with great experience, many players who won the Champions League in this Juventus team".
