(Watch Highlights) Gareth Bale steals show, scores twice as Tottenham crush Burnley

Gareth Bale scored in either half as Tottenham Hotspur comfortably returned to winning ways with a 4-0 victory over Burnley.

Bale opened the scoring after only 68 seconds when he converted Son Heung-min’s cross.

Jay Rodriguez had a header saved at the other end before Spurs asserted their dominance.

Bale’s sumptuous long pass picked out Harry Kane, who doubled the home side’s lead on 14 minutes.

Lucas Moura added a third just past the half-hour with a low shot from Sergio Reguilon’s cross.

And Bale sealed the win with his second strike in the 55th minute, curling in after another assist from Son.

Spurs move up to eighth with 39 points while a first defeat in five keeps Burnley in 15th on 28 points, five points above the bottom three.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s wife-to-be reveals why she banned superstar from changing lightbulbs in his mansion

Georgina Rodriguez has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo is banned from changing lightbulbs in his mansion in case he gets injured.

The Spanish beauty also left fans guessing whether she and Ronaldo had tied the knot by telling Italian magazine Sportweek she cooked all the meals in the house for her “husband”.

“Cristiano is a super dad and the best husband I could dream of.

“But he doesn’t cook.

“After training all morning, he deserves to find a good plate of hot food prepared with love at the table.

“We have a chef and sometimes I cook.

“And changing a light bulb in our house is impossible, we have such high ceilings.

“If you were Cristiano Ronaldo, would you change a light bulb nearly 20 foot above the ground?

“Better not. Take care of yourself and dedicate yourself to being the best at what you do. I’ll take care of the rest. I make it all work out. I like to take care of my home and my family.”

AC Milan chief reveals plan to make Fikayo Tomori’s move permanent, says club wants to discuss “it with Chelsea’s board”

AC Milan’s technical director Paolo Maldini has revealed he would like to talk to Chelsea about making Fikayo Tomori’s loan move permanent.

The Italian legend has said he is impressed with the defender’s performances so far, but believes the believed £26million transfer fee is a bit steep.

“Tomori is a good talent and we have an buy-option clause,” he told Sky in Italy ahead of their clash at Roma on Sunday.

“The price is very high. AC Milan will decide at the end of this season and we will discuss about it with Chelsea’s board.”

Tomori has appeared five times in Serie A this season.

Man City still in race to sign Erling Haaland despite Guardiola’s row with striker’s agent

Man City are well and truly in the race to sign Erling Haaland this summer despite Pep Guardiola’s ‘toxic’ relationship with Mino Raiola, according to reports.

Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland is the hottest property in Europe and the continent’s elite clubs are queuing up to land him.

But he is represented by Raiola – who fell out with Guardiola over his treatment of Zlatan at Barcelona – which could be a problem.

However, the Mirror cite a City source as saying: “There have been dealings with Mino Raiola in the past and if he represents a player we are interested in, it won’t be an issue.

“An example of how these things work happened a few years ago when there was an exchange of views between Pep and Yaya Toure’s agent (Dimitri Seluk).

“That didn’t prevent Yaya from signing a new contract to stay with the club. Personal issues don’t dictate what is best for the club.”

Timo Werner expresses his “guilt” over Frank Lampard’s sacking

Timo Werner has admitted his guilt over Frank Lampard getting the Chelsea sack.

Werner, 24, scored once and provided three assists in 19 matches – a miserable return that contributed to Lampard’s sacking last month.

And he revealed he feels ‘guilty’ over club legend Lampard getting the axe as Chelsea prepare to take on Manchester United today.

The £47.5million forward said: “When you come here to play as a striker and be the man to score the goals, of course I felt a little bit guilty that I missed so many chances.

“For the club, for the old manager but also for me because I want to score all the time and as much as I possibly can.

“Of course, if I’d scored four or five more goals maybe the old manager would still be here because we’d maybe have won two or three games more but you can’t look too much into the past because there are too many games ahead of us. The past was like this and of course I feel a little bit guilty, but in football you have to go on.

Man United legend slams Thomas Tuchel over comments after goalless draw encounter at Stamford Bridge

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has said Thomas Tuchel must have been ‘watching a different game’ after the Chelsea boss claimed the 0-0 bore draw with the Red Devils had “high quality” moments.

It was a game of few chances, with the biggest incident being a penalty shout for United after a handball by Callum Hudson-Odoi.

And Scholes wasn’t impressed.

“I actually think Tuchel was watching a different game on his iPad when he said it was a game full of high quality,” Scholes told Premier League Productions.

“I didn’t see one bit of quality throughout the game. The number of times players got in good positions but failed with easy passes. Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes…

“There was quality on the pitch, don’t get me wrong, but did any of them show it? I don’t think they did.”

(Watch Video) AC Milan boss and fans heap praise on Chelsea loanee Fikayo Tomori after another impressive display in away victory over Roma

AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli and fans have hailed Fikayo Tomori after the Chelsea loanee posted another stunning performance in the Serie A club’s defence in the win over over AS Roma by 2-1.

Pioli was, however, not surprised by Fikayo Tomori’s performance in the win over Roma, relishing ‘a game with high tempo and intensity, the kind we like to play.’

The Rossoneri had gone into this game as underdogs following recent poor results and against the only side that was still unbeaten at home in Serie A this season.

The coach made a surprise decision for this huge game, leaving captain Alessio Romagnoli on the bench in favour of Fikayo Tomori.

“I expected this performance, because Tomori played a derby a couple of days after joining us, so he’s been at this level from the start. I still believe it’s the collective that allows the individual to perform and all together we won a very important match.”

The club’s fans also took to Twitter to expressed their impressoion about Tomori:

Thomas Tuchel reveals how he tried to sign Man United star Bruno Fernandes for PSG

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed he tried to sign Bruno Fernandes when he was manager of PSG.

Tuchel will be facing off against the Portuguese playmaker as the Blues host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

But Fernandes could have been playing for the French champions if the German manager had had his way.

“With my first sporting director in Paris, Antero Henrique, a Portuguese sporting director, and he knew [Fernandes] very well,” Tuchel revealed.

“We fought hard to have a connection to him and to bring him to our team. I got made aware of him more in detail, so we watched more and more games about him and followed him and tried to be in touch with him to make it happen.

“Obviously, he decided [to sign for Man Utd] and I was never personally in touch with him, but we tried and he went another way. [It is] bad for us that we have to play against him.”

(PIX) Former Chelsea striker Fernando Torres shows off stunning “Incredible Hulk” muscular frame

Fernando Torres could soon be known as the Incredible Hulk rather than El Nino as he continues to dramatically transform his body.

The former Chelsea and Liverpool forward, 36, called time on his illustrious playing career 18 months ago.

Known for his lightning pace, the Spaniard won everything in the game at both club and international level.

However, he may well have eyes on adding more accolades to his incredible collection of honours via bodybuilding.

And few would not back him to do so if he wishes as he continues his stunning physical evolution from nimble striker to hitman.

Borussia Dortmund explain why they want to sell Chelsea target Erling Haaland

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has encouraged clubs chasing star duo Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho.

The BVB chief has refused to rule out big-name departures from the club this summer, in light of the financial impact of the coronavirus.

Watzke said: “In the midst of a pandemic, I am now ruling nothing out.

“But it is not necessarily the aim. The most important thing is the financial balance: that we have a strong team on the field and at the same time are economically stable.

“If we play the whole of next season without spectators, we must certainly think about giving up a player.

“Asking banks for credit lines just to not sell a player is not going to be our way.

“We are still unable to make a forecast for the year as a whole. As long as the situation persists, we will not be in the black. Our liabilities are currently at €26.7m [£23.15m].

“This shows that BVB has great economic strength and is very stable.”
