The property, which is at 117 Osbourne Drive, has been well maintained and backs on to a nature reserve. Owner Lyn Patterson said the home was close to everything while still being in a quiet neighbourhood that would never be built out.“We’ve got the wildlife reserve at the back so we get the kookaburras on the property and plenty of other birds,” she said. The home has four bedrooms with built in wardrobes and there is an ensuite to the main bedroom.

first_img Press Association Angry Gunners fans chanted for the manager to sign a striker at the end of their 1-1 draw at Leicester on Sunday. Olivier Giroud is out until January with a broken tibia and Wenger was linked with Loic Remy before he joined Chelsea on Sunday. Boss Arsene Wenger has urged Arsenal fans to trust him in the transfer market and insisted they must stop dreaming of an instant solution. They never pursued a deal for the QPR man, though, despite reports of an inquiry. Rookie Yaya Sanogo started up front at the King Power Stadium but it was Alexis Sanchez who netted the opener, which was immediately cancelled out by Leonardo Ulloa. And Wenger wants supporters to remain patient despite Monday’s looming transfer deadline. “As long as the transfer market is open it makes everyone dream by thinking the solution is always somewhere but it’s not necessarily obvious,” he said. “The solution every time you don’t win is to buy someone. We are out there and we’ll try our best and you have to trust us. “You can’t think every time you don’t win a game there’s a miracle man who can win you the game. “Why did Manchester City not win against Stoke? They have plenty of strikers, football is a team sport and we cannot sell it too much as an individual sport.” And Wenger, who lost Laurent Koscielny to a head injury, insisted the Gunners will keep looking before the window closes but refused to give assurances on new arrivals. “I have been in England long enough to know I don’t want to promise when I’m not 100 per cent,” said Wenger, who also admitted Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered a minor calf injury. “It is not unlimited money because that’s not the way we manage the club. We will try to make the right decision but we have the resources if we think it’s the right player.” Ulloa levelled just two minutes after Sanchez’s 20th minute opener to claim a deserved point for Leicester. It was the striker’s second goal of the season, although he missed a fine chance in the second half to win the game. But boss Nigel Pearson believes his side, who have drawn two and lost one in their opening three Barclays Premier League games since promotion, are improving. “I think when you have a group of players, and a lot haven’t experience the Premier League before in this intensity, the three games we have had have been pretty tough,” he said. “They can reflect on the game and know we can get better and improve but they have given as good as they got. “That should give them confidence. “There isn’t really a great deal of pressure on the players because no-one expected us to beat them. The pressure is on when people make assumptions you should win games. We have to make sure how we judge our players is based on the standards we set ourselves. “I am pragmatic on how I look at fixtures and reflect on performances.” last_img read more

first_img There were holes aplenty in the visiting defence, but Chelsea’s rearguard was porous too. The Baggies breached and exposed when Pedro gave the ball away to Fletcher, who was influential for the visitors. Fletcher prodded it to Gardner, who did the rest, shooting into the bottom corner from 25 yards. Costa ballooned an effort over and Salomon Rondon shot just wide as both sides had chances to take an interval lead. Pedro made his debut at The Hawthorns and inspired Chelsea to a first win of the season, but his star has faded since. The subdued Spain winger was withdrawn for Kenedy at half-time and the Brazilian gave Chelsea much-needed pace and penetration in an increasingly disjointed contest. Costa had no complaints when he was booked for a poor lunge on Gardner after losing control of the ball. Kenedy next powered down the left and Costa looked to join the attack, only to tumble in front of Yacob. The Baggies midfielder avoided punishment, prompting Chelsea complaints led by captain John Terry. Yacob did go off, substituted for Saido Berahino. Chelsea continued to press, with a deflected Costa effort going into the side-netting. McClean was then booked for squaring up to Thibaut Courtois as the contest became more niggly still. Chelsea took the lead for a second time when Willian’s cross deflected in off McAuley, who was under pressure from Kenedy. Costa was denied and Kenedy shot wide before McClean equalised from the edge of the area after Chelsea twice failed to clear. TWEET OF THE MATCH “Why do we pay these chelsea players they r useless.” – Former darts player Eric Bristow vents as Chelsea drop more points at home. PLAYER RATINGS CHELSEA Thibaut Courtois: 6 Branislav Ivanovic: 7 John Terry: 6 Kurt Zouma: 6 Cesar Azpilicueta: 7 Jon Obi Mikel: 7 Willian: 7 Cesc Fabregas: 6 Pedro: 5 Oscar: 6 Diego Costa: 6 Subs Kenedy: 7 Nemanja Matic: 6 WEST BROM Boaz Myhill: 6 Craig Dawson: 6 Jonas Olsson: 6 Gareth McAuley: 6 Jonny Evans: 7 Chris Brunt: 7 Claudio Yacob: 6 Darren Fletcher: 7 James McClean: 7 James Morrison: 5 Salomon Rondon: 6 Subs Craig Gardner: 7 Saido Berahino: 6 Stephane Sessegnon: 6 STAR MAN Craig Gardner: On as an early substitute after Morrison went down injured, Gardner crashed in a superb equaliser and also had a hand in the second. Epitomised the determination of West Brom to take something from a niggly game. MOMENT OF THE MATCH The move for Chelsea’s first goal, started with a long ball from Fabregas to Costa, who fed Willian, with the Brazilian sending Ivanovic sprinting down the wing to ping in a cross for his fellow full-back Azpilicueta at the far post. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Chelsea lined up with their familiar system with their full-backs given license to get forward, not least when both combined for the opening goal. West Brom were forced into an early change with Morrison’s injury, but Gardner slotted into his ‘number 10’ role seamlessly. MOAN OF THE MATCH Diego Costa. A familiar gripe but the Spaniard, who has returned to goalscoring form recently, was back at his antagonistic worst against the Baggies. After fluffing an early chance he decided to spend the rest of the match picking fights all over the pitch – even after the final whistle. WHO’S UP NEXT? Chelsea v Everton (Barclays Premier League, January 16) Southampton v West Brom (Barclays Premier League, January 16) Chelsea felt aggrieved and Diego Costa made his frustrations known at the final whistle by arguing with Baggies players. Costa felt Claudio Yacob, already booked for a first-half foul, should have received a second yellow card for an off-the-ball trip on him early in the second half. The midfielder was promptly substituted and referee Anthony Taylor was barracked by Chelsea players and supporters thereafter. The Blues are unbeaten in six games since the departure of Jose Mourinho, but Guus Hiddink’s hopes of a top-four finish receded further in front of owner Roman Abramovich and ahead of Saturday’s clash with Everton. Chelsea began well. Costa glided by Jonny Evans but shot wide and Willian fired off target either side of McClean heading off target from Darren Fletcher’s cross. James Morrison departed with an apparent hamstring problem before Azpilicueta blocked a Fletcher effort and then scored at the other end. Azpilicueta is less than prolific, but likes scoring against West Brom. The full-back, who netted at The Hawthorns in August, claimed his first goal at Stamford Bridge when he prodded in Branislav Ivanovic’s cross at the back post. Chelsea’s search for successive Barclays Premier League wins this season goes on after James McClean’s late strike earned West Brom a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge. Cesar Azpilicueta’s goal was cancelled out by substitute Craig Gardner before Gareth McAuley deflected Willian’s cross into his own goal. The Baggies came from behind for a second time when McClean struck four minutes from time as the visitors earned a deserved point. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgLeicester manager Brendan Rodgers has “no doubt” his team can secure a return to the Champions League.The Foxes, who won the Premier League in 2016, have made a slow start to the resumption of the campaign, drawing twice and losing at Everton.But a 3-0 home win over Crystal Palace on Saturday leaves them in third place. “We have to stay in this period and focus on the next game,” Rodgers said. “Hopefully by the end of the season we achieve the objective and the dream.”Leicester are a point ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea, with in-form Manchester United two points further back, having won three successive league games.The Foxes, who finished ninth last term, last played in the Champions League in 2017 when they reached the quarter-finals, after their Premier League title win under Claudio Ranieri.Rodgers, who took charge in February 2019,says his team has the capability to return to Europe’s elite competition. “There’s no doubt, we have shown over 33 games our talent,” he said. “OK, we’re maybe missing some players but as a squad we’re very focused on achieving it and we’ll fight to the final whistle.“What the players have done has been remarkable. I’m pretty clear on that and getting the perspective of it all.”Leicester host Manchester United on the final day of the season but next travel to Arsenal on Tuesday, with Mikel Arteta’s seventh-placed side looking to extend a run of three successive league wins.“They are very well organised, look to play how Arsenal supporters want them to play and he has made some really good steps,” Rodgers said. “They’re on the back of three good results and we’ll look forward to the challenge.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
