Xavi admitted that Barcelona players lack motivation
This season, Barcelona has failed in every competition in which it has played. The team was not helped by the arrival of Xavi, nor the winter transfers. All that the Catalans can count on is the second line in the standings of the Spanish championship.
Yesterday, “Barcelona” was defeated by “Rayo Vallecano” (video goal). For this reason the team is under a hail of criticism from fans and experts. The blame was claimed by the Catalans` mentor Xavi, who admitted that he could not motivate the players.
At the moment, Barcelona is in second place in the table of La Liga. But the Catalans are ahead of Sevilla only in the best goal difference between goals scored and conceded.
Lampard criticized the refereeing in the Liverpool vs Everton match
This season, Everton is fighting for survival (not for the European Cup, as planned by the management). At the moment, the team is in the relegation zone due to yesterday’s defeat to Liverpool (video of goals).

The referee did not give a penalty, but most reputable experts believe that there was a violation. That’s also the opinion of Everton coach Lampard, who criticized the refereeing in the match.
✍️ “Everybody saw what happened. It was a clean penalty. If something like that had happened in our penalty box and Salah was in place of Gordon, you know where the referee would have pointed.
Recall that Lampard took charge of Chelsea a few months ago.
