Danny Ward aims to oust Kasper Schmeichel as Leicester keeper
Danny Ward aims to oust Kasper Schmeichel as Leicester keeper
[Obrázek: skysports-kasper-schmeichel_4383059.jpg?20180807165244]

sbobet168 Leicester goalkeeper Danny Ward insists he is ready to challenge Kasper Schmeichel for the number one jersey. The 25-year-old, who joined from Liverpool for around £12.5m in the summer, saved three spot-kicks as the Foxes beat Wolves 3-1 on penalties in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

Schmeichel has been the Foxes' number one for the last six years, winning the Premier League in 2016, but Ward will not be happy warming the bench. "No, every footballer will say the same. No one is content with sitting on the bench, but that's the way it is," he said.

"It's a challenge (to oust Schmeichel), you have to aspire to play. Kasper has been brilliant for a number of years and being recognised with his nomination for FIFA Best the other day. "It's a great task for me to try to move him, but it's one I'm definitely relishing."

Ward has been restricted to two League Cup appearances, making sbobet168 his debut in the 4-0 win over Fleetwood in the second round. But, despite his lack of early season action, Ward, who started his career at Bolton, is relaxed with his price tag.

"It doesn't bother me at all, whether it was the money they paid or it was a free transfer," he said. "I'm a young goalkeeper who wants to play football and I thought I'd have more opportunity to play at this great football club than I would have at Liverpool."

Ward also continued to prove his penalty pedigree with saves from Romain Saiss, Diogo Jota and Adama Traore at Molineux following a 0-0 draw. sbobet168 In 2017, he saved two penalties in Huddersfield's Championship play-off semi-final shootout win over Sheffield Wednesday and then one in the final from Jordan Obita as the Terriers beat Reading on penalties.
Despite the presence of Ronaldo, Napoli will fancy their chances against Juventus
[Obrázek: 04fbe-15381951005231-800.jpg]
บอล ส เต็ ป There promises to be fireworks at the Allianz Arena this weekend as Juventus hosts Napoli in the marquee fixture of matchday 7 in Serie A. It is a top of the table clash, as just three points separate Juventus in first from Napoli in second. The match would carry extra significance, after the exciting crescendo of last season where Napoli took Juventus all the way to the finish line in an enthralling Serie A title race. In the end, Napoli finished with 91 points (the record points tally for a team that didn't win the league), just four points behind Juventus.

Both teams are set to slug it out once more for the title this season, as they have already set the pace for others to follow, with Juventus top of the pile on 18 points following their perfect start to the campaign, บอล ส เต็ ป winning six out of six. Napoli are not too far behind, lying three points behind on 15 with their only bump thus far coming in a shock 3-0 loss to Sassuolo on matchday 3.

The Bianconerri are undoubtedly the favourite of the pair, as they are so significantly ahead of everyone else in Serie A that they have won the league title in each of the last seven seasons, including the last four doubles of league and cup. The addition of Ronaldo to their ranks has significantly increased their strength, and Juve would expect the Portuguese record goalscorer to lift them to even higher heights, with his proven track record of delivering when it really matters. Despite all these, the Partenopei would fancy their chances of causing an upset at the home of their rivals, as on their day, Napoli can hurt any team in Europe.

They also have very recent history to draw inspiration from, as last season, with only five matches of the season left and sat four points behind Juve, Napoli went to the Juventus stadium and completed a shock win. Kalidou Koulibaly headed home in the 90th minute to give the Naples team their first victory at the stadium in over a decade and reduce the deficit to just one point.

The record Italian champions have forged a reputation of having one of the tightest defenses in the world, บอล ส เต็ ป a strong knit unit drilled in the art of defending and synergy, having mostly played together for almost a decade. However, Napoli are no slouches themselves when it comes to attacking, and in 2017 scored a whopping 94 goals, which is the record highest in Serie A's 120 year history.
Is time up for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United? The Sunday Supplement panel discuss

[Obrázek: skysports-jose-mourinho-manchester-united_4437439.jpg]
รับ พนัน บอล Defeat at West Ham on Saturday lunchtime condemned Manchester United to their worst start to a league season for 29 years and intensified the pressure on Jose Mourinho. In addition to the 3-1 reverse at the London Stadium, United have lost to Brighton and Tottenham and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Derby on penalties.

Matt Dunn - Daily Express
A very tepid performance [at West Ham] from a team that just looked ordinary. It wasn't Manchester United, even when they scored the goal, there was no sense of 'oh, they're going to turn it around now' because, first of all, it has to be said, West Ham played very well but United just had nothing about them.

They didn't look dangerous, they were going at half speed, รับ พนัน บอล no one seemed to be getting stuck in, no second balls were being won, they weren't turning the screw at all. That is just totally un-Man Utd. Unfortunately, there is one person steering that ship at the moment and that is Jose Mourinho and he's got a lot of questions to answer now.

Rob Draper - Mail on Sunday
Manchester United have been in an identity crisis ever since Sir Alex Ferguson left, obviously, but it felt like an existential crisis. What is the point of Manchester United if you're going to West Ham and seemingly starting on the back foot and inviting them on to you?

I know people caricature Mourinho as a defensive coach but, at his peak, he was much more than that. He was a much more interesting, innovative coach than the caricature and this doesn't look like a Jose Mourinho side. It looks he's having an identity crisis, the club are having an identity crisis; it feels like they're in a complete cul-de-sac and the only way out is to change leadership.

Dominic Fifield - The Guardian
[Mourinho's end at Chelsea] was dire, I think that was probably worse but I think the one parallel to be drawn now is that spell in the autumn of 2015, Chelsea occasionally flickered into life, they had a good win against Arsenal in that run, they had a few results in the Champions League as well.

Every time that happened you thought, 'oh, they're turning a corner and get back to what they were last season' which was a title-winning side. United won those three away games รับ พนัน บอล and we sort of clung to that as evidence that he can still turn it around, that it's not gone too far yet.
