Chelsea red cards could cost the title

first_imgChelsea Chelsea will gift title to Man Utd or City if they don’t clean up their act Nizaar Kinsella Click here to see more stories from this author Chelsea correspondent Last updated 2 years ago 16:00 18/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(2) Antonio Conte Chelsea Getty Images Chelsea Premier League Antonio Conte David Luiz Opinion Ill-discipline is creeping into the champions’ game, and the Blues must learn to curb it if they are to retain their title this season David Luiz became the latest in a long line of red cards for Chelsea when he was sent off in Sunday’s scoreless draw with Arsenal. The Brazil international was deemed to have gone in dangerously on Sead Kolasinac during the second half of the encounter, continuing a run of bleak discipline for the champions that threatens to undermine their title defence before it has ever truly got started.Indeed, Antonio Conte’s side have had four players dismissed in the opening six domestic matches of the season – as many as in their previous 73 outings. Pedro saw red during the Community Shield while both Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas were given their marching orders against Burnley before David Luiz at the weekend.

Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing A Chelsea sending off, it seems, has become more regular than a Crystal Palace goal.In fact, you could even look back a game further to the FA Cup final, when Victor Moses earned two yellow cards, which ultimately gave Arsenal the edge at Wembley Stadium.David Luiz GFXChelsea are winners and they are motivated by a passionate manager, but their inability to keep 11 players on the field is concerning, all the more so given the electric start both Manchester clubs have made this season.Conte looked to deflect concerns by saying Chelsea needed to be “luckier” with refereeing decisions after the disappointment of dropping two more points at the weekend.”Do you think we are becoming bad?” Conte said at Stamford Bridge. “For sure, it’s strange. But in normal situations, we have to improve, in tactical situations, physical situations.”Also, we have to be luckier in the future. This type of period can happen when you are not so lucky and receive red cards. But, as I said before, I think we have to try to improve in all situations.”Chelsea red card GFXConte, however, was less forgiving of his players when they received two red cards against Burnley on the opening day of the season.”You can see that in the last three official games, we twice finished with 10 men against Arsenal and today with nine men,” the Italian said in August. “I have had to study a new formation with 10 players on the field because when it happens with this regularity you must be worried.” Luiz’s red card will only rekindle these concerns.Manchester United and Manchester City have set the pace in the Premier League, but Chelsea are every bit as good as their most serious competitors. Conte got more out of his team than any other manager last season and he will now need to look into his man-management abilities to control a temporarily overcommitted side.Against Tottenham at Wembley, the Blues showed that they can manage a depleted squad in a one-off situation. Fabregas and Cahill were suspended for that match, Eden Hazard not fit after his ankle break and the club was in the grip of a recruitment crisis as it wrestled with the demands of the summer window. Victory under those circumstances highlighted Conte’s aptitude to win in tough conditions, but it is not a viable long-term strategy for success in the league.It is, therefore, important that Chelsea’s players rediscover the disciplinary line that should not be crossed. Playing close to it can be the difference between winning and losing, but repeatedly crossing it is currently costing the Blues.68 – Chelsea have committed m Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

US senators want proof Canada protecting whales but scientist questions move

first_imgHALIFAX – A call by a group of Democratic senators who argue a U.S. agency should audit the job Canada is doing to protect endangered whales is drawing a cool reaction from an American scientist who promotes their conservation.The 11 senators, led by Sen. Edward Markey of Massachusetts, cite the dire status of North Atlantic right whales as a reason to put some pressure on Canada.There are only about 450 of the right whales left and through the past year they suffered 17 deaths, with 12 of those in Canadian waters.The senators said in an April 25 letter to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that the agency should conduct a review of Canada’s right whale conservation standards, and consider prohibitions on some Canadian seafood imports if they are too weak.However, Regina Asmutis-Silvia, a biologist with Plymouth, Massachusetts-based marine mammal advocacy group Whale and Dolphin Conservation, said cracking down on Canada is diverting attention from her own nation’s responsibilities.She said it makes more sense to focus on greater protections along her country’s coast, and said that little has been done over the past year to upgrade and increase enforcement of American standards to protect the whales.Preservation of the right whale ignited conservation groups and marine scientists in the past year because of all the deaths, coupled with low fertility.Both American and Canadian scientists have warned the species could be extinct in less than 25 years if it continues on its current course.The other senators involved in Markey’s effort are Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sens. Cory Booker and Robert Menendez of New Jersey, Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Sens. Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire and Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware.Kate Brogan, a spokeswoman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said the agency is looking into the senators’ request for a review.— With files from The Associated Press.last_img read more
