After helping Cardiff City secure promotion last season, Liverpool FC’s Marko Grujic had gotten off to a good start to his career at Hertha Berlin before suffering an unfortunate knock to his ankle in September.
The 22-year-old was signed from Red Star Belgrade in 2016 and is clearly held in high regard at Anfield with the club offering him a new long term contract before sanctioning his new loan stint.
But as the youngster continues on his recovery, a tabloid in his native Serbia has published a story featuring some shocking pictures of the midfielder in certain compromising situations.
Smoking hookahs and partying out at night is exactly the sort of thing clubs want their younger players to stay away from but it seems Liverpool’s young Serb couldn’t keep himself disciplined, at least according to these photos.
While the authenticity of the story is yet unproven, it’s safe to say that if these photos end up being legitimate, the Serb will definitely have to answer some serious questions over his attitude when he returns to Anfield.
Check out the pictures below –
Following his big money arrival from Roma, much was expected from Alisson Becker and based on his showing for the Reds so far, it’s pretty safe to say the Brazilian number 1 has not disappointed.
The stopper has played a vital part in Liverpool being breached just five times this season and has further vindicated his reputation as one of the best distributors of the ball from the back with some solid performances in England.
The 26-year-old has also quickly turned into a fans favorite since his arrival and should see his stock with the Reds support rise even further after he was seen teasing City stopper Ederson during international duty.
Ederson is currently Alisson’s understudy at the Seleção and the Reds stopper wasn’t shy to have a laugh at his expense when he messed up a shot during a session and Filipe Luis was on scene to film an elated Alisson burst out with laughter.
Brazil’s Number 1 and England’s best Brazilian keeper! Check out Alisson having a good laugh at the City stopper below :
Chelsea supporters are rather divided on their opinion of Willian’s performances for the club.
While some fans continue to back the raw ability possessed by the attacking midfielder, others point towards his lack of consistency and a failure to find the end product.
The Brazilian certainly seems to enjoy the backing of manager Maurizio Sarri, who’s started him in all 12 league matches this season, but a few Stamford Bridge faithful are yet to be convinced and are clamoring for the 30-year-old to be dropped.
In a bid to put his point across, one Twitter user put up some stats that show Willian lagging far behind in terms of career goal contribution in Europe’s top five leagues.
In fact, the Blues star comes in last in the list of players and if these stats are anything close to being true, they just can’t be ignored. Check them out for yourself:
In news that is sure to excite Arsenal fans, their young midfielder Matteo Guendouzi has been spotted hanging out with Dayot Upamecano, who’s widely acknowledged as one of the best young defenders in the game today and has previously been linked with a move to the Emirates club.
With the Gunners’ defence still not looking as efficient as their attack this season so far, their supporters would love to see the 20-year-old moving to London and would be hoping agent Guendouzi is doing his bit by whispering sweet nothings about the club to his international teammate.
The talented duo is currently training together after being called up for France’s U21 squad.
Check out the picture of them spending time together:
Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard, who scored a stunning goal during England’s 3-0 victory over USA last night, was involved in a brilliant social media exchange with his former Old Trafford teammate Wayne Rooney.
The match itself was quite an emotional affair for fans and the English team alike as it was the last outing for the United legend in national colors.
The 33-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in place of Lingard and came close to scoring a couple of times on his last hurrah.
The pair was then involved in a to and fro on Instagram after the conclusion of the match, from which it is amply clear the kind of impact Wazza had on the youngster during a glittering career for both club and country.
Man United fans will just love the conversation that took place between the two. Check it out:
Izzy Brown is yet to play a game for Leeds United after joining them on loan from Chelsea this summer as he had been recuperating from surgery on a cruciate ligament injury he suffered while on loan at Brighton last year.
Back to full fitness now, the 21-year-old featured in an under-23 match between Leeds and Birmingham, and managed to make a good impression with some slick passes during the 45 minutes he was involved on the field.
Although it’ll be a difficult task to break into Marcelo Bielsa’s starting XI after their impressive start to the season, the filthy footwork on display by the youngster during the warm-up before the game today would have surely made a good impression on the Elland Road faithful.
Check it the neat piece of skill from Brown below:
Eden Hazard left everyone drooling with his scintillating display last night during Belgium’s 2-0 win over Iceland.
It was quite thrilling to watch the Chelsea star absolutely dismantle the otherwise solid defence of their opponents with the help of his impeccable vision and nimble footwork that enabled him to quickly change directions.
While he was majorly involved in setting up both the goals for his team, there were numerous moments in the match when the 27-year-old quite simply appeared to be playing at another level.
Amongst a host of spectacular passes he pulled off—which deserve their own highlight reel—the rabona cross that Hazard came up with after just managing to keep the ball in play is worth watching over and over again.
So do check it out below:
Ever since it was announced that Arsenal have agreed a £300 million kit sponsorship contract with Adidas starting from the 2019-20 season, their fans have been obsessed with the idea of a return for the iconic yellow zigzag strip.
The German sportswear giants designed the bruised banana jersey for the Gunners during a highly successful period in the early 90s, and it’s no surprise to see that fans have been busy creating concept kits reminiscent of those the players donned more than two decades ago.
However, one of the concepts has now been printed by a Twitter user and we’ve got to say, it does look quite spectacular.
Check out the real life version of the bruised banana design yourself:
Eden Hazard seems to be enjoying himself both on and off the pitch during the ongoing international break.
Along with putting in a clinical performance in midfield as Belgium beat Iceland 2-0 in a UEFA Nations League encounter, the 27-year-old also ensured he made the most of his time away from the rigors of club football.
A picture doing the rounds on Twitter shows the Chelsea superstar looking quite relaxed and hanging out with a beautiful mystery woman before the start of the encounter.
Probably just posing with a fan so let’s hope the 27-year-old doesn’t get in trouble with his wife.
Check out the aforementioned snap:
Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been out of action for a long time after suffering a knee injury against Roma in last year’s Champions League semi-finals.
While the horror injury was not deemed career threatening, the 25-year-old is not expected to take any part for the Reds until the start of next season.
Anfield fans though would be pleased to know that the midfielder’s rehabilitation seems to be going well after he was spotted killing it on a gym bike in a clip doing the rounds on Twitter.
