Chelsea captain John Terry has revealed what could turn out to be the Blues’ secret weapon in the Capital One Cup final this weekend against Tottenham Hotspur. Jose Mourinho’s men will be without midfield stalwart Nemanja Matic following his sending off against Burnley, but Terry moved to hail the potential influence of Didier Drogba.
The Stamford Bridge skipper praised his Ivorian teammate, and said that he always performs on the biggest stages when it matters most. Could he be the one to put Spurs to the sword? I guess we’ll have to wait and find out. One thing that could help turn Drogba into a hero is the fact that Diego Costa has admitted he’s looking to get back to his best physical form. The Spain international recently served a suspension for a stamp on Emre Can, and has since struggled to find the net. That could see Drogba given a chance against Tottenham, with Mourinho desperate to secure his first piece of silverware since his second coming in west London.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team has had a lot of issues since the game’s launch, especially in the item transfers sections and coin’s boost. But now, EA Sports has finally done something about it!
“We recently ran into a technical issue that prevented us from properly resolving stuck content (player items or coins) for the FIFA Ultimate Team accounts of a small number of FIFA fans,” said EA Sports on its support site. “We are now able to review these select few accounts, and we will be working to unstick these items for the affected FIFA fans.”
EA Sports has also some apologies gifts for the users affected by those issues, “a one-time package of untradeable packs” to be more precise. The affected users will be contacted via their Origin email address or their EA Sports Football Club News Alerts for confirmation.
“After receiving this update, expect your untradeable packs to arrive within the next few days.” says EA Sports
Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has confirmed that he is officially faster than teammate Theo Walcott after breaking the England international’s speed record over 40 metres last year.
The 19-year-old, who made his Arsenal debut earlier this season, admits it’s nice to be able to say that he is the quickest player in the Gunners’ squad.
Speaking to Arsenal’s official website, Bellerin said: “There are some people who are just born quick and some people that are born slower.
“But I worked a lot on my speed and power with the conditioning coach last year – that’s something which has helped me a lot.
“The work that you don’t see, in the shadows, really shows on the pitch. My time over 40 metres was the fastest. It’s something I didn’t expect – we were just having a test and then they told me I was the fastest at the club. It’s nice to be able to say that I’m the quickest player.”
Bellerin endured a tough debut against Borussia Dortmund in September, but has responded extremely well since then.
The former Spain Under-19 international has made 13 appearances for Arsenal this season, scoring one goal, and could leave summer signing Mathieu Debuchy struggling to break into the Gunners’ starting line-up when he returns from his shoulder injury before the end of the campaign.
SANTI CAZORLA SAYS ‘YES’ TO ATLETICO MADRID TRANSFER
Meanwhile, Spanish radio station Cadena Cope are reporting that Santi Cazorla has made it clear to Atletico Madrid that he fancies a return to Spain this summer.
It’s believed that negotiations are already underway to make a deal happen at the end of the season – but Arsenal fans are likely to be sceptical over these latest reports.
Cazorla is currently in great form for the Gunners and signed a new deal with the club less than 12 months ago.
The Spain international’s contract expires in 2017, according to the BBC, and Arsenal will be keen to keep the happy-go-lucky attacking midfielder at the Emirates Stadium beyond this summer.
ARSENE WENGER FEARS ALEXIS SANCHEZ IS SUFFERING FROM BURNOUT
And finally, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed fresh fearsover the fitness of Alexis Sanchez and believes the Chile international might be suffering from burnout..
Wenger admits Sanchez has “not been himself” over the past couple of weeks – and feels the former Barcelona star’s game has lacked intensity.
The veteran French coach was quoted by the London Evening Standard as saying: “He had not the same intensity in his game as he had until now.
“I’m not sure he was free in his head to sprint as he used to [against Leicester].”
Should Bellerin be Arsenal’s first-choice right-back ahead of Debuchy? Will Cazorla join Atletico Madrid this summer? Have Arsenal’s already seen the best of Sanchez this season?

Neymar says he has no better friend than Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi following the Argentine’s goalscoring rout at home to Levante on Sunday. ( Buy Fifa 15 Coins Service on UTfifa15coins. )
The Brazilian opened the scoring for Luis Enrique’s men midway through the first half, but Messi stole the show by bagging a hat-trick on his 300th Liga appearance before substitute Luis Suarez finished off the 5-0 thrashing with an acrobatic bicycle kick.
Neymar, who has been a Camp Nou player for almost two years now, has explained the extent of his bond with the four-time Ballon d’Or winner and insists his penalty miss in midweek against Villarreal has not affected him at all.
“Some things come easy to Barca and we just put in one of our best performances,” the 23-year-old told Canal Plus.
“I’m very happy with the result. The other day I missed a penalty but these things happen. For me it is an honour to play alongside Messi, Luis Suarez and Pedro. Messi is the best friend I have, both at Barca and away from the football pitch.”
Barcelona are back in action next Saturday at home to Malaga before they take a trip to Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
Gerard Pique has admitted that he would like to see Chelsea win the Champions League this season if his own Barcelona side fail to do so. (Buy Fifa 15 Coins PC, XBOX 360, XBOX ONE, PS3, PS4, Android, IOS Service on UTfifa15coins.)
The centre-back has had a glittering career at the Nou Camp, winning Europe’s biggest prize twice amongst a host of other honours. Pique is keen to complete the hat-trick this season, but readily admits he is hoping Chelsea can come up with the goods if Barcelona can’t.
He told Cadena Cope: “If Barca don’t win the Champions League, then I hope Chelsea win. Cesc Fabregas plays there and he’s my friend.”
A CLOSE FRIENDSHIP
Pique and Fabregas grew up together through Barcelona’s La Masia system but were separated when the midfielder moved to Arsenal. Pique joined Manchester United but both were eventually reunited in La Liga.
While Pique has been a key player for Barcelona since his return, Fabregas failed to convince fans of his ability and was frequently jeered by the Nou Camp faithful last season. He was sold to Chelsea this summer and has since proved to be a worthwhile addition.
COULD CHELSEA WIN IT AGAIN?
Whether Fabregas could inspire Chelsea to a Champions League triumph is another thing altogether though. The are favourites to advance past Paris Saint-Germain and into the quarter-finals by the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid will be a different challenge.
Chelsea have already showed signs of straining from a Premier League title fight and will have to keep up the pace if they are to fend off Manchester City. As the season wears on, Jose Mourinho will need a lot of luck to advance to the latter stages.
They famously won the trophy in 2012 but the campaign took its toll on their Premier League form. While they took home the European Cup, they finished way down in sixth place in the Premier League.
However, Mourinho is probably the best manager if you want to win the Champions League. He has already won it with two different clubs and would like nothing more than to bring it to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are currently fourth favourites with most bookies placing their chances at 7/1.

Arsenal flop Lukas Podolski is set to make a surprise return to Arsene Wenger’s fold this summer, as Inter Milan aren’t keen on turning his loan-spell into a permanent move. (Buy Fifa 15 Coins PC, XBOX 360, XBOX ONE, PS3, PS4, Android, IOS Service on UTfifa15coins.)
That’s according to the Daily Express, who cite Italian sources when they claim that Roberto Mancini is focused on an alternative target in Paris Saint-Germain’s Ezequiel Lavezzi, and so has little use for Podolski.
The German international moved to the San Siro only last month, having fallen down the pecking order in north London and become desperate to get more on-pitch opportunities. However he’s found little solace in Serie A, with Bayern Munich’s Xherdan Shaqiri – who is also a new addition to the club – and hot-shot Mauro Icardi providing stern competition for a first-team place.
In fact Podolski has been an unused substitute in both of Inter’s last two matches, and it could transpire that he finds it just as difficult to force his way into the manager’s plans there as he did at Arsenal.
LAVEZZI OVER PODOLSKI
The rumour in question states that Mancini is instead looking to France to find the man he sees capable of helping restore Inter’s former glory. PSG’s Lavezzi has been reportedly unsettled for some time, and if Fredy Guarin is wafted under Laurent Blanc’s nose as part of the deal, Mancini is of the opinion that the Frenchman will do business.
That outcome would all but confirm Podolski’s return to Arsenal, and it makes sense to assume he’d be offered little reprieve. His criticisms of Wenger since leaving north London – albeit made in frustration – were likely offered with the assumption that the Gunners would cease to be his club from the end of the season onwards. It’s now looking like he’ll be with them until he can find someone else to take him on.
NO HOPE AT ARSENAL
Currently Alexis Sanchez is dominating headlines for his classy performances for Wenger, and with Theo Walcott’s return from injury having gone smoothly and Mesut Ozil looking somewhat back to his best, the wide areas are all covered.
Couple that with the fact that Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud are both fighting for the place in the centre of the front-line, and Podolski’s position with Arsenal looks untenable indeed.
Perhaps a move back to the Bundesliga is best, with the player himself having admitted in the past to having plans of an eventual Cologne return. Though Bayern Munich’s iron grip on the division would virtually rule out any hope of securing major domestic silverware, it could be the right place for him to rebuild his reputation before age begins to take a toll on his abilities.
Manchester United’s hopes of signing Marco Reus this summer have suffered a serious setback after the German playmaker penned a new four-and-a-half year contract with Borussia Dortmund. The Bundesliga giants confirmed on Tuesday morning that the 25-year-old midfielder has committed his future until 2019, and crucially the £20m release clause inserted in his previous deal has been removed. Louis van Gaal was eager to bring Reus to Old Trafford at the end of the season, but the Red Devils could now be forced to pay upwards of £50m to make the move possible. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Arsenal have all been mooted as admirers of Reus as well, and will be similarly disappointed to hear about the latest show of loyalty that has become increasingly rare in the modern football era. Dortmund have endured a disastrous season with Jurgen Klopp’s side languishing near the bottom of the table, but that hasn’t deterred Reus from renewing terms.

It’s hard to believe, but EA Sports’ legendary FIFA series is now 22-years-old, having survived and adapted to repeated new console generations, and even new business models. We get a brand new game each year like clockwork, but while we love them all, there’s no denying some are more influential or memorable than others. （Buy Cheap Fifa 15 Coins Online, We are the Top-rated sellers for cheap Fut coins!）
Maybe it’s the first one you ever played, a particular soundtrack, the first FIFA game you actually managed to score a bicycle kick in, or just the first edition that you discovered Ultimate Team mode in, but we all have our favourites. So what’s yours? Below, we’ve come up with a list of the 10 most significant installments of FIFA ever, with a quick refresher on why.
1. FIFA International Soccer (1993)
The game that started it all debuted late in 1993. Its isometric gameplay looks dated now, but was a breath of fresh air for Sega Mega Drive players at the time.
2. FIFA 96 (1995)
The first game in the series to make the jump to full 3D and offer real player names.
3. FIFA: Road to World Cup 98 (1997)
While fans were sorry to see 97′s fun indoor mode ditched, the excellent World Cup tournament mode more than made up for its absence, while the licensed soundtrack (Blur, Song 2) cranked-up the production values, setting the bar for future games.
4. FIFA 2001 (2000)
We take online play with FIFA for granted these days, but it wasn’t until the start of the new millenium that the mode was added to the series, and even then only on PC.
5. FIFA Football 2003 (2002)
With revamped graphics and the new ‘Freestyle Control’ method for flicking the ball to team-mates, FIFA 03 was a much more sophisticated game than its predecessors. It also marked the first time a FIFA game was released on mobiles, years before the smartphone app explosion.
6. FIFA 06 (2005)
After three years, EA gave FIFA another big graphical overhaul with FIFA 06, just in time for the series’ debut on Xbox 360. As an added bonus, the original FIFA 94 was playable inside the game’s retro section.
7. FIFA 09 (2008)
The first edition to introduce the legendary Ultimate Team mode. EA would have no idea howcrucial the option would become to the series at the time.
8. FIFA 10 (2009)
While FIFA had jumped to 3D 15-years earlier, it wasn’t until FIFA 10 that player movement was updated in a big way, finally giving your players full 360 degree movement, instead of the typical 8-way directions they could manage previously.
9. FIFA 11 (2010)
Come on. The first game in the series to let you play a match as the goalkeeper. How was this not going to be on the list?
10. FIFA 14 (2013)
The first FIFA on PS4 and Xbox One, marking the debut of the stunning new Ignite engine.

SINGAPORE – Singapore defender Safuwan Baharudin now features in popular football video game Fifa 15, after his loan move to A-League side Melbourne City. He is a player we rate highly from what we have seen and we think he can still make big steps. So you can buy FIFA Coins at fifacoinsfut.org to get him in FUT, His Performance will not let you be disappointed!
Following an update earlier this week, the 23-year-old appears on the bench of the Australian side bearing the name “Baharudin”, which appears on the back of his jersey in the game as well. He is believed to be the only Singaporean player in Fifa 15.
With a rating of 56, he is the fourth-best centre-back in the squad, and can also play at right-back and as a defensive midfielder. His best attributes in the game are sprint speed, stamina and balance.
Safuwan made his highly anticipated A-League debut on Saturday, coming in to the Melbourne City starting line-up as a replacement for injured defensive midfielder Erik Paartalu. However, he was unable to prevent Melbourne City crashing to a 0-3 loss against city rivals Melbourne Victory, having been substituted after an hour.
On Safuwan’s performance, his coach John van’t Schip said: “Looking at him today… he was not afraid to challenge, he was not afraid to coach (provide directions to teammates), he wanted to have the ball; he was strong in the air defensively but also when we go forward.
