Ole Gunnar Solskjaer critical of Jesse Lingard’s miss at Watford

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has acknowledged that Jesse Lingard chose the wrong option when he was clear on goal against Watford in the Premier League.

Frank Lampard says Sterling can be the perfect role model for Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that Callum Hudson-Odoi has the potential to be the complete player and he should learn from the progress of Raheem Sterling. The England international made his long-awaited comeback against Grimsby Town in the League Cup third round and he has since earned some Premier League minutes off the bench against Brighton & Hove Albion.

He was able to leave a mark in both games with a goal and an assist respectively and Lampard has no doubt that the club graduate can become a top performer, should he follow the right path, he told reporters: "I know Callum's talent and he's got huge talent, hence why the club was so keen to get him signed up and we're all delighted with that. But there is a lot of work to do.

Gareth Southgate Pleased with Maturity Shown by Sterling

England boss Gareth Southgate is very happy that former Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has been able to become a much more matured player in the last 24 months. Sterling made the switch to Manchester City in 2015 when he was just getting beyond his teens. He had made his reputation at Liverpool for his immense space. The initial few years at Manchester City were not exactly rosy for the winger – especially after the arrival of Pep Guardiola. However, the former Barcelona boss seems to have groomed the England international in such a way that he is now much more effective than ever before.

Sterling has been able to make 49 appearances for England since his debut in 2012. Even though he has scored only eight goals in all of these matches, it is incredible to think that six of these goals have come in the last two years. There is a lot of maturity surrounding the 24-year-old, who scored only two goals for England in his first five years with the national team. Sterling has not been getting statistically better just for England, as he has been able to put in a lot of high-profile performances even for City. Sterling came up with 23 goals last season and he is on course to getting 20+ goals for a second consecutive campaign.

Maurizio Sarri Claims Loftus-Cheek andHudson-Odoi are Ready

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri claims that Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi are ready to become stars of this Chelsea first-team. So far, the youngsters have not been given a proper run out in the first-team as they have been largely used as substitutes. The impact that both players have had for Chelsea have been very limited in the 2018-19 campaign, but that has not prevented from both players making an impact at international level. This is especially true in the case ofHudson-Odoi, who went on to make his first senior appearance for England even before making a start in the Premier League.

This situation seems to have woken up Sarri, whose Chelsea team is also badly in need of new ideas, after the Italian finally admitted that the youngsters will be getting opportunities in the last few games of the campaign. Hudson-Odoi has been featuring more prominently in the Europa League, but it is expected that he will be starting more games in the last five matches of the Premier League campaign. Loftus-Cheek has had injury problems so far this season, but Sarri confirmed that the midfielder is finally beyond his back troubles and that they can both make an impact. Since both players are fresh at this moment, they will be able to provide a new impetus.
