Man Utd Hammer Roma 6-2, Arsenal Fall At Villarreal

Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani each scored twice as Manchester United took a huge stride towards the Europa League final by coming from behind to thrash an injury-hit Roma 6-2 at Old Trafford.

Fernandes’s early opener was quickly cancelled out by Lorenzo Pellegrini’s penalty before Edin Dzeko put Roma in front at half-time.

But the Italians lost three players to injury before the break and United took advantage with a dominant second-half performance.

Two predatory finishes from Cavani turned the tie around before Fernandes also fired home from the spot.

Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood rounded off the scoring in a sensational second-half performance.

Only a second leg collapse will prevent them from facing Villarreal or Arsenal in Gdansk on 26 May.

In the other semi-final, Villarreal claimed a narrow advantage against Arsenal with a 2-1 home victory in the first leg, although they will feel frustrated at letting the London club off the hook.

First-half goals by Manu Trigueros and Raul Albiol put the Spanish club in command and it looked bleak for the visitors when Dani Ceballos was sent off just before the hour mark.

But the tie remains delicately balanced ahead of next week’s return in London.

Paris Saint-Germain striker, Neymar has finally committed to a new long-term deal with the French giants.

The French club has confirmed that the Brazilian striker has penned a new deal which will run until summer 2025, a three-year extension.

The news has put rumours of Neymar returning to Barcelona to put to bed.

“I’m really pleased to continue my adventure at Paris Saint-Germain. I’m very happy in Paris, and proud to be part of this squad, to work with these players, a great coach, and to be part of the history of this club,” Neymar told the club’s official website.

“These are things that make me believe even more in this great project. I have grown as a person here, as a human being and as a player, too. So I am very happy to extend my contract and I hope to win many more trophies here,” the Brazilian concluded.

“The core of our ambitious project to grow PSG is the heart, talent and dedication of our players, said Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Chairman and CEO of Paris Saint-Germain.

I am proud that Neymar Jr has reaffirmed his long-term commitment to the PSG family through to 2025, and will continue to delight fans. We are very happy to see him continue as part of our project and to be alongside us for many years to come.”

The 29-year-old Brazilian, who has been at the club since 2017 when he moved from Barcelona in a world-record £220million deal, has made 112 appearances, scored 85 goals, and got 44 assists.

His salary is expected to be around €30m after taxes for three years. He will also receive a ‘huge bonus’ if PSG win the Champions League in the next three years.

Chelsea Delay Man City Premier League Glory

Published

Chelsea postponed Manchester City’s title celebrations by coming from behind to earn a dramatic late victory at the Etihad Stadium.

The victory also moved Chelsea up to third place in the Premier League

Following a slow start, a first-half largely devoid of excitement burst into life just before half-time, when the referee waved play on as Andreas Christensen went down injured, allowing Raheem Sterling to put Man City in front.

There was further frustration when Chelsea was denied the chance to bring on a substitute, finishing the half with 10 men, and then the home side was awarded a penalty in added time.

However, Edouard Mendy was wise to Sergio Aguero’s cheeky effort, saving the spot-kick comfortably, and the Blues fought back strongly when restored to a full 11 players in the second half.

First, Hakim Ziyech powered a low shot into the bottom corner from outside the box to level the scores, following good play on the right from Cesar Azpilicueta and Christian Pulisic.

Then, with frustration growing after three Chelsea goals had been disallowed for offside, two by Timo Werner and one for Callum Hudson-Odoi, Marcos Alonso popped up in the box in second-half injury time to turn in Werner’s cut back and give the Blues all three points.

UEFA has asked the six Premier League teams who tried to join the European Super League, to make a combined €15million (£13m) goodwill contribution to benefit children’s and grassroots football across Europe.

They will also see 5 per cent of UEFA competition revenues withheld for one season.

The six clubs – Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City – have signed a UEFA ‘club commitment declaration’ after backing down in their breakaway bid.

And they each face a €100million (£87m) fine if they ever attempt another coup

AC Milan, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid have also climbed down in committing to existing international and national club competitions.

An official UEFA statement read: “Those nine clubs acknowledge and accept that the Super League project was a mistake and apologise to fans, national associations, national leagues, fellow European clubs and UEFA.

“They have also recognised that the project would not have been authorised under UEFA Statutes and Regulations.”

However, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, have refused to renounce the Super League.

UEFA insists it will take “appropriate action” against the trio.
