Chelsea boss Conte reveals Guardiola inspiration

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed he is influenced by the coaching methods of Pep Guardiola ahead of Manchester City’s visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Blues are three points behind Guardiola’s side in the Premier League table and will need to be at their best to thwart a team who have scored 21 goals in their six games this season.

Conte has been impressed by City’s start to the season and is happy to admit taking inspiration from Guardiola’s attacking approach.

“I have great respect for Pep and I think he’s the best,” Conte said.

“I like to watch his side’s games. Every coach tries to learn new information and new ideas and then try to elaborate on them with their own thoughts.

“We know very well that Guardiola’s team likes to dominate the game, have a lot of possession, and create many chances to score.

“He tries to create a squad with a lot of technical and creative players to try and deliver his ideas on the pitch.

“Manchester City have improved on last season and brought in a lot of good signings. They have started very well and are in a great moment with lots of confidence.

“We have to pay attention tomorrow, as it won’t be easy against City.”

Guardiola will be without the services of top scorer Sergio Aguero, who suffered a suspected broken rib in a car accident in Amsterdam on Thursday.

At his pre-match news conference, Conte said he had enough faith in his players to not have an issue with one of them being abroad 48 hours before a match.

“I was a player and when you have your day off you must take responsibility to try to make the best decision for you, the team and the club,” he explained.

“I like to give responsibility because the players are not kids. They are men, they have families and children and I think that it is important to give them responsibility.

“I’m sorry for the situation and I hope Sergio is feeling good. I think and I hope that he stays well.”


Simple Things To Do Every Day To Lose Weight Effortlessly

Losing weight doesn’t feel great when you only focus on restricting your diet and exercising like crazy. It doesn’t have to be that hard, though! Incorporating simple changes into your daily life can yield HUGE results. Here are three painless weight-loss strategies you can use to reach your goals.

Add, Don’t Subtract

You probably won’t lose weight pounding piece after piece of pizza and tubs of ice cream, so you’re making a healthy decision by ditching these kinds of foods. A simple mind shift can make all the difference in you being able to stick with limiting those foods and, more importantly, being happy about it. Don’t think of all the foods you can’t or shouldn’t have – discover and rejoice in all the new and healthy foods you can eat.

Think it’s impossible to get psyched about veggies? Learning how to make nutritious meals more exciting will be key to this. Skip the boring bowl of lettuce, cucumber, and carrots and make a kale, white bean, and maple-roasted butternut squash salad instead. Take a cooking class or play around with recipes to find healthier versions of the foods you like. For example, this lasagna is made with tofu, but you’d never know! And while grocery shopping, choose produce that’s in season, because their flavors will inspire you to eat more fruits and veggies.

Stand More Than You Sit

Research shows the effects of sitting all day can be deadlier than smoking, but we also know standing burns more calories than sitting. So get up! Whenever possible, choose to stand while eating breakfast, checking email, having a meeting, waiting at the doctor’s office, or at happy hour. If you have a desk job, invest in a standing desk. Aim to stand more than you sit during your waking hours.

Put It on Display

Putting healthy foods out where you can see them makes you more likely to reach for them when cravings strike. Keep fresh apples, bananas, pears, oranges, and avocados in a bowl on your counter. When you open your cupboard or pantry, have protein bars, nuts, and homemade 100-calorie snack packs staring back at you in one container. When you open the fridge, put healthy foods at eye level right in the front, such as baby carrots, sugar snap peas, hummus, apples, and yoghurt. Or better yet, keep containers of cut-up bell peppers, cucumbers, melon, and washed grapes so they’re quick and easy to nosh on. The goal here is to make healthy foods as easy and accessible as a bag of crisps.

Barcelona Could Join Premier League If Catalonia Gains Independence

Catalan sports minister insists Barca, Espanyol and Girona will have to decide where they want to play after La Liga chief maintains they cannot be part of Spain’s top flight if the region goes it alone.
Barcelona could end up plying their trade in the English Premier League if Catalonia wins independence, according to the region’s sports minister.

The claim was made after La Liga president Javier Tebas insisted that Catalan clubs would not be allowed to play in Spain’s top flight should the region vote to go it alone.

Sunday’s referendum has been declared illegal by the Spanish government and ballot boxes have been seized with prime minister Mariano insisting the referendum “won’t happen”.

There is strong support for independence among Catalonia’s 7.5m population – including from Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola – but parties loyal to Spain are boycotting the vote.

Among the many uncertainties is what will happen to the region’s football clubs, including Barca, if Catalonia becomes a new country.
Gerard Figueras, Catalonia’s minister of sport, said;

“In the case of independence, Catalan teams in La Liga – Barcelona, Espanyol and Girona – will have to decide where they want to play: in the Spanish league or a neighbouring country: Italy, France or the Premier League.

“Now in Spain there teams from other countries who play in national leagues: clubs from Andorra in football and basketball. Monaco plays in France, in England Welsh clubs. I don’t think that UEFA has anything against seeing another club play in a different league from their country.”

Spain have insisted Barcelona will not be allowed to play in La Liga if the illegal vote goes through.

La Liga president Javier Tebas said;

“In sport, it isn’t a la carte and things must be clearly stated. It isn’t easy to have an agreement and study Spanish legislation but if they (Catalan clubs) do get that, then they will not be able to play in Spain’s La Liga, but I hope it doesn’t come to that.”

As expected, Mayweather defeated the debuting McGregor by 10th-round TKO. But all parties involved had nothing to be sad about considering that massive paydays both made in a boxing match between the two biggest stars in combat sports.

Mayweather took that mutual respect a step further by adorning the walls of his recently purchased Beverly Hills mansion with a giant painting of both himself and the UFC lightweight champion. The 50-0 fighter showed off the 8-foot tall portrait on social media.

With Edinson Cavani already at the club, PSG now boast an enviable array of attacking talent – although they have already experienced problems when it comes to harmony within the ranks.

Unai Emery will be hoping to see those issues put to one side against Bayern on Wednesday, but Robben has warned that the Bundesliga champions will head to Paris with no fear regarding the challenge in front of them.

The Netherlands international said: “Paris have certainly given out a few more euros than us, but money doesn’t score goals, quality on the pitch scores goals, good teams score goals.

“The important thing is the performance of the team, not just to focus on particular players.”

“I know our team, they are highly motivated and concentrated for games like this,” he affirmed.

“I am convinced we can get something out of this game.”

Both Bayern and PSG enjoyed comfortable successes in their opening Group B fixtures, with the former seeing off Anderlecht 3-0 while the latter swept past Celtic 5-0 in Glasgow.
