LNTUP 5 Hot Topics of The Day By the date 21st Oct2017
1. 70% lesser than the last season.
Chelsea has lost to Manchester City and then bottom club Crystal Palace in the last two league games, as well as losing a two-goal lead in Wednesday’s 3-3 Champions League draw at home to Roma in the recent past. When the manager is asked about their recent lower grades, he said, “I don’t know about that,” Conte told a news conference. “I have my methods the same as last season when we won the league.” And added “But we are working maybe 70 percent less this season because we play every three days, to play every game with the same players is a big problem. It’s impossible for them to work, except for the games.”

3. Danny Rose is uncertain against Liverpool.
England international Rose, out since January with a knee injury that required surgery, came on as a late substitute in the Champions League clash at the Bernabeu on Tuesday.
With Ben Davies has missed Tottenham’s last two games through illness, Rose’s return to fitness is timely but Pochettino will not rush the 27-year-old back.
“Danny is still not ready to start, he needs to build up his fitness,” Pochettino told reporters on Friday and added, “But we are so happy because he is doing very well and for him to be on the bench on Tuesday was good for the team.”
Looks like Danny Rose has just been Googling and eating McDonalds during his time out on the sidelines 😂 pic.twitter.com/9ylkpthlM4

5. German FA hit with tax escape punishment.
The German Football Association must pay 19.2 million euros ($22.61 million) in back taxes related to a controversial payment for the 2006 World Cup but it will challenge the Frankfurt tax office’s decision, it said on Friday.
The tax office said the payment of 6.7 million euros from the DFB to world soccer’s governing body FIFA in 2005 had not been declared properly and the association now owed 19.2 million.
“The tax authority is questioning the tax deductibility of the payment and the non-profit character of the DFB for the year 2006,” the DFB said in a statement.
