Frank Lampard Still Can’t Believe Harry Maguire Got Away With A Headlock

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said he was frustrated and confused that his team were denied a penalty in Saturday's 0-0 Premier League draw at Manchester United.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta was grabbed by his United counterpart Harry Maguire when challenging for a header in the first half but the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) dismissed the London club's penalty claims after reviewing the incident.

Masterful Defending — And Baffling VAR — On Display Between Chelsea, Man Utd

MANCHESTER, England — Manchester United remains winless at Old Trafford in the Premier League this season after it was held to a 0-0 draw by Chelsea on Saturday.

United, which had lost its opening two home games of the season, has seven points from five games and is in 15th place, while Chelsea is in sixth on nine points from six games.

What The Hell Is The Point Of VAR When It Ignores This Shit

Harry Maguire is one lucky boy. And the VAR has some explaining to do.

Manchester United’s center back made a clear and obvious foul on Chelsea’s César Azpilicueta in the first half of their match on Saturday at Old Trafford. The referee missed it, so the video assistant referee should have chimed in to award a penalty to Chelsea.

Instead, no VAR intervened when the ball was played out of bounds moments later. No penalty was awarded. 

Petr Cech Comes Out Of Retirement To Join Chelsea's 25-Man Premier League Squad

It is not uncommon for a goalkeeper coach to be named to a team roster, especially for a lower-league club during an injury crisis.

Burton Albion's Kevin Poole was 50 years old in 2013 when several injuries forced him don the No. 13 shirt and sit on the bench for the Brewers' League Two match against Wycombe Wanderers. A month later, the Burton goalkeeper coach also dressed as a backup for three matches after first-choice keeper Jordan Pickford was recalled by parent club Sunderland.

Timo Werner Is Now Wanted For Double Murder After Two Merciless Strikes

Timo Werner is a one-man wrecking crew right now. Southampton fans are probably wondering if he can be tried for murder after he destroyed the Saints defense with two rampaging goals in the first half on Saturday.

It was only a matter of time before Timo Werner went off in the Premier League. Thus far frustrated in four EPL matches, the Germany international finally broke through with two of the most spectacular goals we’ve seen this season.

José Mourinho Thinks He Knows Why Arsène Wenger Didn’t Mention Him In New Autobiography

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho believes there could be only one reason why long-term rival Arsene Wenger missed out on mentioning him in his new book.

"Because he never beat me," Mourinho told reporters on Friday.

Wenger's autobiography — "My Life in Red and White" — looks back over his 22 years in charge of Arsenal between 1996-2018 but there was no mention of his touchline duels with Mourinho, whose Chelsea side dethroned the Frenchman's Invincibles in 2004-05.

Captain America Is Back: Watch Zouma’s Hilarious Reaction To Pulisic’s Sizzling Shots In Training

Christian Pulisic’s return to full health is nearly complete. The Chelsea and USMNT forward has been rehabbing a hamstring injury for several months and missed the first five games of the season. He made a brief seven-minute appearance in the final moments of Saturday's match against Crystal Palace.

Chelsea’s latest tweet shows the Pennsylvania-native hasn’t missed a beat during his healing hiatus. The dude is still hitting bangers and putting fellow teammate Kurt Zouma in danger.

Here's The Origin And Meaning Behind Players Celebrating By Forming Fingers Into An 'A'

I’ve been scratching my head all week wondering why various players form their fingers into a letter “A” after scoring a goal. This past weekend Ben Chilwell, Ross Barkley and Jack Grealish all formed the letter “A” after scoring. So what is this letter A goal celebration anyway?
