Given the global reach of the Premier League, it isn’t surprising to hear many big-name celebrities come out and declare their support for an English club in the top flight.
However, amongst the crowd in Anfield to witness the game between Liverpool and Swansea was actor Will Ferrell, someone who has previously professed his support for Liverpool’s main title rivals Chelsea.
According to the grapevine, the Anchorman star was invited to watch game by Liverpool chairman Tom Werner, who is apparently a good friend of the actor.
And it looks like the actor wasn’t very thrilled with the football on display from the home side yesterday. Check out the picture below:
Apart from the much maligned dearth of trophies, one of the more well known aspects of Arsene Wenger’s long reign at Arsenal has been the Frenchman’s outstanding work with identifying young prospects and moulding them into world beaters.
That said though, not every youngster turns out to be a success story with young right back Carl Jenkinson the latest in a long list of youngsters failing to make the grade at Arsenal.
Despite being a lifelong Gooner, a lack of game time under Wenger saw the lifelong Gooner linked with a move away from the Emirates. Crystal Palace came calling but with a move all but agreed the transfer broke down at the last minute owing to personal terms.
The whole episode of having to leave his dream club only to see the proposed move scuppered at the very end no doubt had a telling impact on Jenkinson as he was snapped looking very visibly upset in training amidst his other happier teammates.

Back in October of last year, when a triumphant Chelsea announced its record breaking kit deal with Nike, there obviously arose a huge clamour and speculation as to the purported design of Chelsea’s new kits for the 2017-18 season.
The fervour surrounding the new Nike kit doesn’t seem to have subsided just yet as another concept kit made the rounds on social media.
The conceptual designs feature a modern touch on all three kits with the Nike logo clearly inscribed near the torso. The collar-less shirt also features single coloured strips around the neck in all the three designs.
While the classic all blue home kit will look familiar, what’s peculiar is the other two kits which have striking resemblance to the all white Swansea kit and the Hull City home kit.
Check out three kits below:
League strugglers Swansea unexpectedly salvaged a hard-earned 3-2 victory at Anfield and shocked every Liverpool fan. Despite the dismal result, though, not everything was gloomy for Reds striker Roberto Firmino.
Apart from scoring two stunning goals and almost deciding the game in Liverpool’s favour, the Brazilian can find some solace in the fact that his sensational performance earned him another admirer: none other than Atletico Madrid’s class striker Antoine Griezmann.
Griezmann was clearly keeping a keep eye at the happenings of the thrilling roller roaster ride that the game was, and just couldn’t stop himself from grabbing his phone and tweeting in praise of Firmino, calling him a “TOP player”.
In fact, this is just one incident from a history of previous instances when the Frenchman has praised Liverpool players, and Daniel Sturridge appears to be an old favourite of his!

Man United’s official Twitter feed announced before kick-off against Stoke City that boss Jose Mourinho had confirmed about Marcos Rojo’s inability to feature in today’s game through illness.
The Argentine International has been an integral part of the Red Devil’s defence this season and also been in a rich vein of form recently.
And doing his reputation no harm, Rojo was snapped in with away fans at the bet365 Stadium. Checkout the picture of Rojo watching the match amongst the away fans below!
Earlier, Wayne Rooney rescued a point for Man Utd with a brilliant free-kick after the hosts took the lead through an own goal.
The fact that Alexis Sanchez is a world class player is quite well known. It’s the main reason Arsenal fans are so jittery that he is yet to sign a new contract extension, despite having only a year and a half left on his existing deal. The man also has a psyche that is unique in modern football.
In the footballing world where fitness and fatigue training is constantly gaining importance, Sanchez seemingly takes pride in pushing his body to the limit at all times. How beneficial this may be in the long run is up for debate, but it’s the way the Chilean international operates.
This mentality is something confirmed by Ian Lynam, a sports lawyer based in London. Taking to Twitter, the man shared an amusing story about how Alexis enjoys his training. It is a story that once again highlights just how committed to his craft the forward is.

Liverpool have the distinction of being one of the most cohesive sides in the Premier League. They amount of miles they clock whilst on the field is testament to that.
Adam Lallana signifies this approach perhaps better than anyone. The English international has been a revelation as an advanced midfielder; not only has he scored and assisted on a regular basis, he’s done a lot of running around this season.
Amazingly, a graphic flashed before the Liverpool-Swansea game showed that whilst Lallana doesn’t have the record of most distance covered in a league game this season, he occupies every other position in the top 5. The person who ruined his near-perfect is Bournemouth’s Dan Gosling.
