"My only concentration is Leicester" - Brendan Rodgers addresses Arsenal speculation


The former Liverpool boss was asked about the reported clause following his side's dramatic victory over Everton, which saw them close the gap on Liverpool at the top of the Premier League. The responsibility is to move the club forward and I am very happy trying to do that.

"Most manager's contracts will have something in but my focus is here".

"I've been very fortunate in my career to work with some brilliant clubs and some great institutions and coming to here, this was an ambition to come here to help the club arrive in the top six. With the Arsenal job there is probably about 10 names".

Things came together perfectly for Everton midway through the first period, though, when Richarlison started a move by finding Calvert-Lewin who moved the ball on to Iwobi and his perfectly-weighted ball for Sidibé down the right allowed the Frenchman to swing in a teasing ball that the Brazilian powered home.

The Foxes initially struggled to recover until they levelled with 22 minutes left. "So my concentration is very much with Leicester".

This was the first time the former Manchester City player had given off any indication that he has the necessary credentials to make an impact, and he did so when he and his team needed it the most, much to the delight of the Foxes supporters, plenty of whom took to social media to acknowledge his performance.

Business jet crashes in South Dakota, killing at least 9
A plane crash in South Dakota has left nine people dead, including a pilot and two children, officials say. Brule County States Attorney announced Saturday evening that nine of the plane's 12 passengers died.

It left Everton 17th and boss Silva insisted his future was out of his hands. "Tomorrow will be another day for me to prepare another training session".

Everton now go into Wednesday's Merseyside derby sitting just two points above the relegation zone and Silva's position as manager still up in the air despite a promisingly spirited display from his charges.

Silva said: "I never had doubts about that".

"I know he's distanced himself [from the Arsenal job], but it wouldn't surprise me if he's had a little phone call....and you know what Brendan's like, if he fancies it", McAteer said on LFC TV following Liverpool's win over Brighton.

"It was a moment for us to show a reaction and we did that. It was hard in the first half, they sat in but we tried to stay positive and play our offensive game", he said.
