Tottenham Hotspur continued to get their season back on track with a comfortable win over CSKA Moscow in their final Champions League encounter last night.
Despite the win, it would be safe to say that Spurs’ first Champions League outing in over five years was definitely a disappointment. That being said, they go out with their heads held high and are still in Europe courtesy of the Europa League.
Spurs won 3-1 on the night at Wembley but many might not have noticed the celebratory handshake between Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min when the former scored Spurs’ second goal.
Goofy yet somewhat endearing, it’s a clear indicator of the fact that this side is bonding well both on and off the field. Check out the handshake here:
One of the most celebrated fictional characters in Britain, Alan Partridge is often portrayed as a insensitive and inept TV and radio presenter. Alan featured as a sports presenter early in his career and owing to his supposed lack of football knowledge as well as his character, he left us with some rather fun and memorable lines.
Barring the last 3 results, Newcastle fans have been in buoyant mood for much of this season and one fan went so far as to give some of Newcastle United’s goals this season the Alan Partridge treatment.
The video posted online highlights back to some of United goals with Partridge’s commentary following the sequence of the goals. The result we all know turns out to be rather very hilarious.
Chelsea’s defensive stability has played a big role in their table-topping campaign thus far. Whilst the reinvigorated Diego Costa and Eden Hazard have spearheaded the attack to perfection, their defence has been just as impressive, keeping six clean sheets in eight games and generally being very hard to get past.
Thibaut Courtois has also cut a reinvigorated figure in goal, pulling off some spectacular saves when needed and looking like the world-class player he is. However, if recent footage of Chelsea’s training regime for their ‘keepers is any indication, Antonio Conte is clearly keen they don’t rest on their laurels.
Chelsea’s goalkeepers were subjected to some intense training, using ping pong balls to keep their catching skills and reflexes intact. The method might strike some as unorthodox but it’s clear the players are having the time of their lives whilst partaking in training.

Tottenham finally seem to be firing again, having ended their indifferent run of form with two wins in this week. They thrashed Swansea 5-0 in the weekend, and finally won at Wembley in a hard-fought match against CSKA Moscow last night.
Attacking midfielder Dele Alli was one of their best performers on the night, and seemed happy with his performance, at least until his friend and teammate Eric Dier decided to play around with him.
Eric Dier was caught on camera properly slapping his team-mate on the back of the head as Alli was being interviewed post-match.
Alli seemed surprised, but managed to laugh it off- not before warning Dier. Check it out below!
Number crunchers CIES Football Observatory released their Most Valuable Players list and the Spanish daily AS took it a step further, and put together a line-up from the released list- a team consisting of the players with the highest market value in their respective positions.
The majority of the line-up consists of up-and-coming youngsters, with then Premier League representation coming from Manchester United & Liverpool players. However, the eleven does contain some major shockers, especially with the omission of one of the best footballers of this generation.
The hypothetical line-up can definitely give the best teams in the world a run for their money- check out the surprise below!
It might have come too late, but Tottenham Hotspur finally ended their Wembley hoodoo with a 3-1 win against CSKA Moscow last night. The win secures a third-place finish in their Group, and sees them parachute down into the Europa League.
In an overall decent showing by the team, one of their better players on the night was winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou. The youngster came on for Son Heung-Min with half an hour left to play, and left a mark on the match with his mazy runs and deft touches.
And it seems the Frenchman was quite buoyed with the win and his performance, as evident from his humorous tweet post match. Check it out below!
When Manchester United’s first Adidas kit released last season, there was a mixed reaction from United fans on social media. Many liked the colour schemes used in the shirt; however, there was also criticism from a set of fans who believed the Chevrolet logo was too big and gaudy.
Designer Franco Carbajal recently made a mock-up of what next season’s away jersey might end up looking like and the design made its way online. The bad news for fans is that the Chevrolet logo isn’t getting any smaller.
On the flip side, Adidas have seemingly once again knocked it out of the park as far as the colour schemes go, creating a shirt that aims to appeal not only to younger fans but also many old-timers who will appreciate the classic style of design and shades.
