Man City’s assistant manager and former Arsenal player Mikel Arteta has recently admitted to Marca that Anfield was the toughest stadium he ever played at during his 17 year professional career.

This just shows how powerful the Anfield faithful are as Arteta has played against the likes of Spanish giants Barcelona at the Camp Nou and also Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Spaniard who has played a massive role in City’s back to back Premier League titles wins told Marca, via Football 365:

“I had the feeling of being stuck. It happened with Arsenal. You say: I don’t know what’s going on, stop the game, please.”

A great and recent example of this would be Liverpool’s 4-0 Champions League semi-final win against Spanish Champions Barcelona as the Catalan club could not handle the irresistible Reds on the night. It was another of those magical nights at Anfield for the Reds as they overcame a 3-0 first leg deficit.

Arteta has lost three of his four meetings at Anfield as Guardiola’s assistant manager with the worst being City’s 3-0 quarter-finals first leg Champions League defeat to the Reds on the 4th April 2018.

Derby owner Morris admits a move to Chelsea for Lampard is inevitable.
Since Maurizio Sarri left Chelsea for Juventus, the main rumoured replacement is Derby County’s Frank Lampard, and now, following talks between officials from both sides, it is looking as though a return to Stamford Bridge for Lampard is likely. According to reports on the Evening Standard, Derby owner Mel Morris has said that Lampard joining Chelsea is inevitable at some point. Lampard was very successful in his first season as a manager and the owners at Derby have been very impressed with him, which is probably why they think a return to Stamford Bridge is on the cards for the ex-Blues midfielder.
