    Sarri is heading into Chelsea danger zone, Martial is showing up Mourinho’s poor judgment and is Mee ready for England?

    Maurizio Sarri is heading into the shark-infested waters that did for Luiz Felipe Scolari and André Villas-Boas, who were sacked midway through their first seasons in charge of Chelsea. They were removed by Roman Abramovich once his team’s place in the following season’s Champions League was endangered and this weekend ended with Manchester United in fourth spot. Villas-Boas lost his job on 4 March 2012 while Scolari departed on 9 February 2009. At least Sarri has now lasted longer than the Brazilian, but ‘Sarriball’ has lately looked as poor a fit for Chelsea as his laissez-faire attitude and Villas-Boas’s overly methodical stratagems. Sarri’s displacement of N’Golo Kanté to play everything through Jorginho and the cold shoulders given to youngsters such as Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek may end up being his deepest Chelsea legacies.

    • Two men filmed making plane gestures during Cardiff game
    • Fan behaviour back in spotlight after four arrests at Watford

    Police have detained two Southampton fans who appeared to mock the death of the Cardiff striker Emiliano Sala, on a day when unrelated incidents put fan disorder back in the spotlight.

    At St Mary’s, two men were filmed apparently making plane gestures during Southampton’s defeat to Cardiff in reference to the crash which killed Sala and left the light aircraft’s pilot, David Ibbotson, missing.

  • Sat, 09 Feb 2019 17:07:11 +0000: Cardiff’s Kenneth Zohore scores late to end Southampton’s unbeaten run - Southampton | The Guardian

    At the end of an emotionally sapping week Cardiff City showed enormous heart to snatch a stoppage-time victory, moments after Southampton had seemingly rescued a point. It was not pretty but this was about as precious a win as it gets. It was a result that hoists Cardiff above Saints in the table and left Ralph Hasenhüttl questioning whether his squad are capable of staying in the Premier League after they again activated self-destruct, collapsing after pulling level in the first of five added second-half minutes through Jack Stephens.

    But Kenneth Zohore’s winner from close range earned consecutive top-flight wins for the first time since 1962, helping Cardiff, who led through Sol Bamba, clamber a point above the relegation zone. Burnley’s win at Brighton in the evening game means Southampton are in the bottom three.

    This will be another difficult day for Cardiff and their supporters, after Thursday’s confirmation that Emiliano Sala was killed in a plane crash. Cardiff have, to their immense credit, maintained their on-field focus as the tragedy has unfolded around them. Victory over Southampton would see Cardiff climb above their hosts and out of the bottom three, even if the result may still feel secondary to Neil Warnock and his players. Like their visitors, Southampton must try to put emotions aside against a relegation rival on what could be a pivotal weekend in the battle for safety. Niall McVeigh

    Sean Dyche cannot wait for VAR, Higuaín and Hazard lift Sarri and the Pogba-Rashford combo looks good for United

    Sergio Agüero’s hat-trick, scored from a collective distance of 10 yards, was not achieved by accident but thanks to his instincts and endurance. At times City looked sloppy against Arsenal but Agüero made the difference, repeatedly finding himself in the crucial position to jab the ball home with any available limb. All of City’s attacking midfielders know where the Argentinian wants to be once they break into the area and Agüero’s improved fitness under Pep Guardiola helps him get there. Superior fitness was one of the things that made the difference as Arsenal wilted while Agüero and City thrived. The striker is definitely working harder under the Catalan than his predecessors and his increased stamina is bringing rewards. He will need every last ounce of energy for the rest of the season as he is still irreplaceable. Will Unwin

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has been a busy man in the transfer market this summer as he looks to reinforce his squad for the start of next season after a great run which saw them promoted to the English top flight via the play offs. Adkins is now desperate to bring in new names to the club so that he can secure their position in the top flight for another season at least.

The first signing of the summer sees promising young full back Nathaniel Clyne arrive at St Mary`s from Crystal Palace after the promise of the clubs plans to attempt to quality for Europe this season were very enticing for the player. Southampton though will need to pay a large compensation fee to his current club if the deal goes through as due to the players age his former club feel they are due some type of payment from the saints after he signed a new four year deal last week.

Another player who has just be signed by the club is talented striker Jay Rodriguez after he recently arrived from Burnley for a fee which is believed to be around the six and a half million pounds mark. Adkins has long been an admirer of the player and is extremely happy with the signing which he sees as just perfect to bolster his attacking line for next season.

A shocking bit of news right now for Southampton is the fact that their attempts to bring defender Alexander Buttner to St Mary`s may be in tatters after his current club Vitesse Arnham have halted the move after another club have come into the frame for the players signature. Southampton may now find themselves in a bidding war for the player who they see as a perfect addition to their squad so as of now all dealings over the player have hit a premature halt.
