Jose Mourinho ensured that Manchester United’s 600th Premier League win helped them move up to the 5th spot after beating Middlesbrough 3-1 earlier today.
Maroune Fellaini scored his first PL goal of the season by heading past ex-United keeper Victor Valdes, just before Jesse Lingard added another goal to the scoresheet with a brilliant second-half strike.
Boro did manage to pull one back through substitute Rudy Gestede, but it counted for nothing as Antonio Valencia sealed a win with a tap-in goal late during injury time.
Celtic’s dominant run in the Scottish Premiership has almost assured them of their 48th domestic title, and kit suppliers New Balance have decided to mark this occasion by incorporating their iconic green colour in their new kits for the next season.
Footyheadlines.com revealed that the Hoops’ third kit for 2017-18 will brandish a striking shade of the club’s iconic luminous green colour.
Celtic’s current third kit boasts of a very flashy pink look, while the same was yellow during the previous season.
While other details about the features of this jersey are not yet known, it has been revealed that the new third kit for Celtic will be officially released in July this year.
Check out the green colour that the kit is expected to flash next season –
Knives are out, battle cries are ready, and the message on the wall couldn’t be any more clear: the call for Arsene Wenger’s sacking haven’t been louder before.
After a woeful 10-2 loss to Bayern Munich was followed by another shocking 3-1 thrashing by Liverpool earlier this month, Arsenal’s humiliating run further continued due to yesterday’s 3-1 beating at the hands of West Brom.
The biggest and most dramatic reactions after every loss of Gunners this season have been found on Arsenal Fan TV, but yesterday’s episode revealed a lot more than that.
Mr. DT, a regular on the Arsenal supporters’ YouTube channel, alleged that the club is trying to hide information of a fall-out that Theo Walcott had with Wenger’s right-hand man and coach Boro Primorac two weeks ago.
DT also claimed that a frustrated Alexis Sanchez recently removed himself from all social media groups consisting of Arsenal players.
Check out DT’s rant below, the juicy bit comes after 04.30 mark –
The fact that Celtic’s future is secured by brilliant young talent was affirmed after Scotland beat Montenegro 6-1 in the UEFA Euro U-17 Championship last night.
Firing Scotland in the next round of the Championship were some stunning performances by young players who impressed their respective clubs immensely.
Jack Aitchison opened the game with a beautiful curling strike and added another goal to his name in the second half, while Kerr Mcinroy scored one as well. All three assists came from their Celtic team-mate Daniel Church.
A brace courtesy of Norwich City’s Glenn Middleton, and a goal by Rangers player Zak Rudden and helped Scotland secure a win, while Montenegro could only manage to score one.
Celtic’s youth academy routinely supplies many promising players to Scotland’s U17 squad and Jack Aitchison is one of them. The striker became the youngest footballer to play for Celtic by scoring on his debut at the age of 16 last year.
N’Golo Kante’s routine display of brilliance on football pitches have helped him gain many admirers, but the same when done virtually drew a lot of anger from one of his team-mates recently.
Chelsea players decided to huddle in a hotel room to enjoy a friendly game of FIFA, but it seems that poor Kante forgot the cardinal rule of never messing with Diego Costa.
Costa went absolutely mad and subjected Kante to his wild wrath after the Frenchman beat his team-mate during a game, while other Chelsea players were busy mocking their striker.
Chelsea will need Costa to show the same aggression for their next few crucial fixtures, as the club are currently leading the table with 66 points and are strongly on course to win their sixth league title this season.
Originally captured on David Luiz’s Instagram stories, check out the hilarious video below –
With 66 points in the bag and an eye on the play-off spots, the Peacocks are just about everywhere this season, and one even got Toulouse striker Martin Braithwaite excited recently.
When a peacock decided to be a guest in Braithwaite’s backyard, the Danish forward provoked some exhilarating reactions from Leeds fans by linking the event with the club’s name.
Braithwaite tweeted a video of the bird and impressed Leeds fans with his knowledge of their lesser-know nickname, so much so that they even requested the club’s manager and co-owner to place the player’s signing on priority basis.
The 25 year-old has scored 11 goals from 27 appearances for Toulouse this season, and has been linked with Premier League clubs like West Ham and Sunderland.
Rumours of Gary Monk’s interest in the player have surfaced in the past, and this is certainly going to get the fans a whole lot more excited this time.
Check out Braithwaite’s tweet and the subsequent reaction from the Leeds fans below –
Injury-ridden Liverpool breathed a huge sigh of relief after striker Divock Origi was seen returning back in training today, the first time this week.
Origi joined Roberto Firmino in coming back to the club’s training session, which will be a big boost for Liverpool after players like Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge have already been ruled out.
Liverpool will take on Manchester City on Sunday in a crucial encounter that could help the Reds leapfrog their rivals and even secure a spot above second-placed Tottenham.
Despite a game in hand, the fixture will be even more crucial for City, who will be looking to brush their Champions League exit aside and increase their lead over Liverpool on the table.
Origi has scored 8 goals in his 33 appearances this season, and has been working hard to find his way up to be a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Ever since Antonio Conte took over the helm at Chelsea last year, the Italian has converted the Blues into an unstoppable force, and a lot of credit for this goes to his acumen in handling transfer business.
After bringing back David Luiz and signing players like Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante, who have played huge roles in the club’s resurgence this season, it appears that the manager is planning to wreak havoc in the upcoming transfer window as well.
According to Matt Law of Daily Telegraph, a reliable source for all things Chelsea, the Blues are planning to break the bank and spend about £100 million to secure signings of Everton stars Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley this summer.
