    Willian brace = FA delight0

    On a weekend when big names tumbled and FA Cup surprises seemed more frequent than predictable outcomes, Sheffield Wednesday succumbed to Chelsea’s superiority in a game where the biggest talking point was VAR. The remote replay checking system was in operation at Stamford Bridge for the Owls’ visit, although the curious lottery of some matches

  • It’s clicking for Ross0

    Everything’s clicking for Ross Barkley, a player transformed from the injury-prone ‘maybe man’ released by Everton in January this year for what now looks like a bargain £15million.

    It was a rollercoaster ride at the Emirates for the eagerly awaited post-New Year Arsenal v Chelsea clash, with the balance of the game twisting and turning right into stoppage time. In the end, a 2-2 draw was probably about right, although Arsenal just shaded it in terms of attacking chances in a match which
