beIN SPORTS pundit Andy Gray has urged Chelsea manager to drop midfielder Jorginho, according to a report on the Mirror. The former Napoli man has become the new pass master in the Premier League but his inability to provide goals or assists has been noticed by many fans and pundits. Jorginho plays as the deepest midfielder in the Chelsea team and his job is to simply link the play between the defence and midfield. However, Gray believes that Chelsea need to try something different to get the desired results and wants Sarri to sacrifice his favourite player.

Mikel is a free agent but has a number of Premier League suitors so any deal could prove tricky for the London outfit. [...]

In this week's e-Crystal Palace Podcast, I review the game against Watford by giving you my match report, player ratings as well as my Man of the Match. Palace fell to only their second defeat in their last seven matches. After a scramble and some penalty box pinball, Roy Hodgson's men took the lead after the ball ricocheted in off Craig Cathcart. Unfortunately, they couldn't hold onto the lead with Cathcart netting from a corner – at the right end that time – with Tom Cleverley scoring after a fine volley to complete the comeback.
