Lucas Piazon: Chelsea striker has joined Malaga on loan

Piazon has made just three appearances for Chelsea since joining from Sao Paulo in January last year and made his Premier League debut as a substitute in the 8-0 hammering of Aston Villa before Christmas.

The Brazilian has now been allowed out on loan to gain further first-team experience at Malaga, who will face Porto in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League next month.

"We have an agreement with Malaga for Lucas Piazon to go on loan there until the end of the season," said Chelsea's interim manager.

Benitez has ruled out recalling Romelu Lukaku from his successful loan spell at West Brom, where he has scored nine goals in 22 matches since August.

The 19-year-old has expressed a desire to stay at West Brom beyond this season and Benitez feels Lukaku is benefiting from the experience.

"Romelu went there as a young player and he's doing well. He's getting experience in the Premier League," he said.

"You never say never because you might have a problem, but at the moment the idea is that he stays there and gains more experience."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
