EPL: why Arsenal coach refused to sign Mohammed Salah

Arsenal manager Unai Emery believes Mohamed Salah is now among the world's top five players, despite failing to sign him when he was in charge of Paris Saint-Germain.

The Gunners boss will be in opposition to the Liverpool forward when his Arsenal side face the unbeaten Premier League leaders at Anfield on Saturday.

Egypt international Salah, 26, has scored 59 goals in 78 matches since arriving at Anfield from Italian club Roma before the start of the 2017/18 season.

Emery was coach of Ligue 1 champions PSG at the time and on Friday he admitted to being uncertain as to how Salah would cope with the pressure of playing for a major club.

EPL: Sarri speaks on Hazard contract renewal

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says the time has come for star playmaker Eden Hazard to make up his mind as to whether he will sign a new contract.
The 27-year-old Belgian -- who has been at Chelsea since 2012 -- is a target for Spain's European champions Real Madrid but said on Thursday he wanted to put off any decision on his future till the end of the season.
Chelsea, though, have offered Hazard -- who reached a landmark century of goals for the club with a brace in the 2-1 win over Watford on Wednesday -- a new contract reported to be worth well over £300 000 a week.
Sarri, though, said at his press conference on Friday he wants everything cleared up as soon as possible.

EPL: Chamberlain set for February return – Klopp

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a serious knee injury and could be back in full training around February time.

Oxlade-Chamberlain underwent knee surgery after sustaining multiple ligament damage during Liverpool's Champions League semifinal in April.

Liverpool had thought it was possible Oxlade-Chamberlain would spend the entire 2018-19 season recovering from the injury, but last week saw the midfielder take a milestone in his recovery as he ran outside for the first time in eight months.

"Best news, best news. He started going on the pitch and from the first step he looked completely normal," Klopp told a news conference on Friday.

"Sometimes when players are coming back from an injury and they start running but is not the picture you have in your mind. But with Ox, from the first step it looked like Ox and it was really nice.
