Chelsea FC lead the Premier League after the Xmas fixtures and ahead of
Monday night's first matches
in 2021, after 5 wins and 1 draw and looking favourites for the Premier
Wayne Rooney has been in sensational form for the Blues with 31 goals
in 24 games, adding Antoine
Griezmann to their squad increases their firepower and attacking threat.
RSC Anderlecht continue to surprise everyone in 2nd place and chasing
Chelsea, with only 1 defear in
6 matches and playing some good football. David Neres has 21
goals in 25 games leading the team
Lucas Biglia has been a revelation in midfield, with his passing, 11
assists and 11 key tackles.
Real Madrid have moved into 3rd and after some impressive 10 goal wins
and scoring goals for fun,
Luka Modric continues to pull the strings with his passing and assist,
in attack Edin Hazard, Lihadji,
and Vente have been scoring the goals and now they have signed Harry
Kane for more firepower.
Ajax FC have moved into 4th place with some impressive performances,
and a run of 5 consecutive
wins. Ajax boss Stevie has marshalled his team well, the
performances of Dusan Tadic in midfield
have been key and his 11 goals, along with Haaland in attack with 11
goals they have sold their star
Jeremy Doku to Manchester United so can they continue their great form?
At the bottom, Nottingham Forest really struggling with 8 successive
defeats and change in players
has not had the immediate effect the manager was hoping. Sanchez,
Tevez, Rashford and Suarez
have all joined the club will be hoping to change the club's fortunes.
Zenit St Petersburg also struggling with 4 defeats in 6 games and 2pts
from 18 pts not great form,
Dyzuba has weighed in with 13 goals and but defense has been their
problem and an absent
manager. Rangers have also slipped into the bottom three with 5
defeats in 6 matches and taking
just 1 pt from possible 18 points and in real trouble. Signing
strikers Ciro Immobile and Teemu
Pukki should help the Scottish side with scoring goals.
The Chamnpions League draw for the Quarter Finals has been made, and
the ties line up as follows:-
Atletico Madrid v Manchester City
Royal Antwerp v RSC Anderlecht
Zenit St Petersburg v Galatasaray
Manchester United v Juventus
