This felt inevitable. Marcelo Bielsa is now the latest Premier League manager to be shown the door after a string of awful results with Leeds United. The Whites sit in 16th place, two points above the relegation zone.
Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich has announced his decision to sell the club following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Many have now begun to analyse what the decision portends for the club.
Gameweek 28 is set for one of the biggest derbies in Europe- the Manchester derby. Even more importantly, both teams need to win for their respective reasons. It is fair to expect an end-to-end affair.
