  • Guus Hiddink targets European spot for Chelsea after controversial Costa goal secures win at Norwich

    Guus Hiddink challenged his revived Chelsea side to qualify for Europe through the Premier League afteSwedish striker joined the Blues as a 16 year-old from Malmo and spent five years with the giants before moving onto Brescia.Explaining the Italy switch, he recalled to Fotbollskanalen: "When Villas-Boas came, all the youths left for other leagues. "r the Blues climbed into the top half of the table for the first time in his second reign with a . Chelsea were a point off the drop zone when the magical Dutchman took over in December. But the fastest Premier League goal of the season from and a controversial second from at Carrow Road saw them move up to eighth - and only five points off an unlikely European place. It was ’s first hat-trick of wins in the league this troubled season as for an hour normal servcontent_imgice had appeared to be restored before Norwich’s brundo Deportivo says Rashford is on a four-man Barcelona transfer wishlist in their bid to replace Luiz Suarez.The Catalans have identified Rashford, Tottenham's England captain Harry Kane, along with Liverpool ace Roberto Firmino and 'top target' Kylave late fightback. While Norwich slipped into the bottom three, Hiddink’s side are now unbeaten in 11 Premier League games. With their crisp attacking play in the first half and resolute defending after the break, it was like watching the old Chelsea grind out a result. “We’re happy,” said the Dutchman. “It’s not Chelsea standard to be happy to be out of the relegation zone, and sit back and relax a bit. "We have to set new targets now with the ambition of Chelsea in the direction of Europe. "We have a tight schedule – Stoke, PSG, Everton – and the squad is not very, very broad, so we hope everyone is on board. "If everyone is available, we’d like to go as high as possible towards the European spots.” Chelsea, celebrating the first anniversary of their Capital One Cup victory last season, took the lead after only 39 seconds. Alex Neil was later furious at his five-man defence as the Brazilian was allowed to cut in from the flank fire past the pink-clad John Ruddy. Late in the first half the home fans were incensed by Thibaut Courtois picking up a Gary Cahill backpass which brushed brush off Cameron Jerome. The simmering anger in the stadium exploded in injury time when debutant Bertrand Traore fed Costa standing a yard offside behind Ryan Bennett but assistant referee Michael McDonough allowed the Spaniard was allowed to run on and score. Mason was surrounded by furious players at the break. “I made them aware that he’d got it wrong at half-time,” said Neil. “The guy’s made an honest call and got it wrong. It happens.” The home side channelled their frustration into going forward after the break. Jerome missed a golden chance when he volleyed against the top of the crossbar from six yards out after 53 minutes before equalised 15 minutes later. Norwich’s spirit was shown in this blood-and-guts Premier League encounter when which left the former West Ham midfielder with a two-inch gash in his head. But Neil said: “I’m not going to sit here saying ‘Poor us, luck’s not on our side’. I think it’s probably been the story of our last few games.

  • Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger facing his last stand in the Champions League after 182 matches

    Arsene Wenger is still haunted by the biggest regret of his career. That was their battling defeat in the 2006 final and, even though he would never admit it, the 11 years since have seen his Gunners fall further behind Europe’s elite. They have gone from being beaten finalists to first knockout phase also-rans. is now the elder statesman of the competition, potentially facing his last stand in Europe because of lingering doubts about his future with his contract due to expire this summer. But the 65-year-old genuinely believes his current squad - including world class talents Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez - is capable of competing on the big stage as he desperately chases the big piece of silverwareaway from Manchester City.Kicker says City boss Pep Guardiola is now prepared to see the contract rebel sold as he seeks a new left-sided winger to be added this summer.Watching developments are Bayern and they're prepared to bid for Sane.Sane manage missing from his CV. Wenger has managed an incredible 182 games in the Champions League, only bettered by Sir Alex Ferguson who took charge of 190. Wednesday night's opposite number Carlo Ancelotti is next on the list with 147. But the truth is that Ferguson won the European Cup mbele will not leave the club this summer.Manchester United are reportedly interested in the 23-year-old striker, who scored 23 goals last season."Moussa Dembele will not leave. The team was made for him. We recruited according to him," Aulas said actwice and Ancelotti has done so three times (with two different clubs). Wenger’s nearest miss remains that day in 2006, when the 10-man Gunners lost 2-1 in Paris to two late Barcelona goals. Arsenal have not even got past the last 16 stage in the last six years, and the reality is that they are no longer regarded as serious contenders. Another failure this year may leave Wenger facing the painful truth they are as far away as ever and that maybe it is time for change. But that would change, of course, if they can overcome Bayern Munich in the first leg here and the return in London on March 7. “Thank you for reminding me of the bad history, but let’s focus on the future,” said Wenger when asked about Arsenal’s recent failings in the Champions League. Wenger also shrugged off questions about his future. “This is not a topic or an issue today,” he said. “The topic is the match tomorrow.” It feels like Wenger’s back is against the wall, under massive pressure to beat Bayern — if they crash out at the last 16 stage again then his future will become even more of an issue. But former Chelsea boss Ancelotti - who has described the Frenchman as a “legend” - also painted a different picture of his Arsenal counterpart, for whom he has the utmost respect. Ancelotti said: “Wenger has the experience to know that in our job it’s normal to be criticised, so I think that for this reason he has no problem. He built a strong identity in this club, a really good style of football, so I have a lot of respect for his job at Arsenal. “To win the Champions League, you need to have courage, personality, experience, luck and … all this, the courage is important. Usually, the team wins that plays better than others.” Wenger described Chelsea’s Champions League success here in 2012 as “lucky” — in the way you need good fortune to get through in any cup competition. Arsenal need their own luck this time. They were dealt a bad hand when they won their group and still got Bayern in the last 16 after the Germans finished only as runners-up to Atletico Madrid, but Wenger approaches even this ultimate test with his usual sense of idealism as he would never dream of playing defensively. He said: “Look, it is Bayern. They won the triple a few years ago. They had the team who was top in Europe. "We want to play attractive and efficient football and I don’t think that is a bad target, personally. “We have gone through the group stage and not lost a game yet. Let’s focus on what we did until now in the Champions League and focus on our next performance.” Wenger is fighting against the negativity surrounding Arsenal’s build-up to this first leg, and his captain Laurent Koscielny insists that the squad believe they can upset the odds and reach the lcontent_imgast eight. Defender Koscielny said: “I think we know we are capable of winning here. We did it in the past [ but going out on away goals]. We [at the Emirates] last season, and we can do it here. “The first game is here and that is really important because we have the second at home. It will be important at home if we have a good result tomorrow. We know frorm the past that the first game is important. “We stay focused on our job and stay united. "I think it is most important that the dressing room lives well together. During the season we have some good and bad moments and in the bad moments you see if you have a good squad or not. “We responded well after the two defeats against Watford and at Chelsea. "During the Hull game [on Saturday] we didn’t play well but for the confidence, it was very important for the players to come away with a win and I hope we do it again tomorrow.” PROBABLE TEAMS Neuer, Lahm, Hummels, Martinez, Alaba, Thiago, Alonso, Vidal, Lewandowski, Muller, Robben.

The plane will fly over while fans hold up banners Newly formed fan group Everton Board OUT held a first meeting last week prior to the start of the season and it was agreed that they would display their anger at the board at the earliest opportunity. Everton Board OUT, in coalition with fan group The Blue Union and independent Everton fan website School of Science, clubbed together as they plan to voice their concern. Since Kenwright formed the consortium, True Blue Holdings, back in 1999, Everton have spent an average of less than £3m net a season on player acquisitions, a total net figure of just £63m, a trend which appears to be set to continue, according to the fan groups.

  • Dario Gradi has “nothing further to say” as former Crewe Alexandra boss is quizzed over sex abuse scandal

    Dario Gradi insisted an apology for Crewe Alexandra's role in the abuse scandal that has rocked football has "already been made", adding he had "nothing further to say." Driving away from Sky News reporters as they quizzed him for more information about crimes perpetrated by youth coach Barry Bennell, who worked with the club during the 1980s and 90s, Gradi once again failed to apologise to the victims.

"I would like to express sympathy to the victims of Barry Bennell not only at Crewe Alexandra, but at other clubs in the north west. "The first I knew of Barry Bennell's crimes was when he was arrested in the United States in 1994. I knew nothing of his crimes before this time when he was employed by us. No one at the football club knew of Bennell's crimes until his arrest in 1994 and his subsequent prosecution in the United Kingdom."
