Baggies hand Blues rude awakening ahead of UCL tie against Porto

Football is one very unpredictable game that many folks should be aware of by now, and stop underrating teams. Thomas Tuchel's winning run at Chelsea was halted by the unlikeliest of teams in the Premier League on Saturday and no one saw it coming. A good one for the bookies indeed! Chelsea were hammered 5:2 by Sam Allardyce's West Brom at Stamford Bridge in the early kickoff game on Saturday and it was a big shocker. The Blues have been stingy in letting in the goals under Tuchel, but when they did, it was against 19th placed West Brom.

Allardyce – Sane must have done something to offend Guardiola

Sam Allardyce has expressed shock over Leroy Sane's supposed fall down the pecking order at Manchester City under Pep Guardiola this season. The 22-year-old Germany international was voted as the PFA Young Player of the Year last season after an impressive campaign in which he bagged 14 goals and 19 assists for Manchester City. Regardless, the youngster was left out of Germany's Russia 2018 World Cup squad. He has hardly played for the Citizens this season as he was not included in the squad for their last Premier League game against Newcastle United. Reports suggested that Sane's mentality was questioned by Germany team-mate Toni Kroos and this coincides with reports that he was dropped by Guardiola due to his poor attitude in training.
