Ander Herrera is renowned for his tactical awareness on the pitch. The Spain international possesses an impeccable presence of mind, always making the right decision in the heat of the moment.
Herrera has that knack for spotting the space during games to play his beautiful through passes and it seems the midfielder has been delivering through balls behind opponents defence from his early days.
A video of the Manchester United midfielder which has surfaced in social media platforms shows a young Herrera splitting defences for his youth team. The young midfielder can be seen creating two delightful goals. He plays perfectly weighted through passes for his teammates to put the ball in the net.
Look at those exquisite passes from the young Herrera:
Chelsea centre-back David Luiz was captured striking an impressive bicycle kick goal during a training session. Luiz who was snubbed by Brazil head coach Tite for their World Cup qualifier against Bolivia and Chile, was seen participating in a practice session with fellow Chelsea teammates.
The Brazilian centre-half renowned for his ball playing ability showcased his finishing skills in spectacular fashion. Luiz proved he knows his way to the back of the net with a sublime overhead kick.
The former PSG man leapt into the air and struck the ball past the goalkeeper after Marcos Alonso dinked a short cross from the left.
Have a look at David Luiz’s wonderful acrobatic effort –
Nyah Rose Lee seems to have won the hearts of football fans across the globe with her recitation of the Manchester United squad.
The video which has gone viral over every social media platform shows the three-year-old girl perfectly pronouncing the names of the players and sing her own rendition of the Zlatan Ibrahimovic song.
When asked about who is her favourite from the current lot and the past, Nyah proudly responds with Paul Pogba and Eric Cantona, arguably the best French talents to have graced Old Trafford.
This is the kind of true love and passion for which a club and a player craves for. Check out Nyah with her recitation:
A video featuring Sadio Mane kicking an opponent on the pitch seems to have gone viral on Twitter recently. Well not the real Mane again, but a digital version of him in FIFA this time.
The virtual Mane can be seen putting his boot right on the face of an opponent while reaching for a high ball. And it seems fans are not missing the opportunity to troll the Liverpool number 19 as he was associated with a fairly similar incident a few weeks back.
The Senegalese forward had been involved in a freakish accident with Ederson when Liverpool met Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in September. Both the players were contesting for a high ball when Mane landed his boots on Ederson’s face. Quite similar to the video.
Check out the video of Mane kicking his opponent in FIFA 18 below:
Diego Costa is quite the character both on and off the field and his time at Chelsea would be a testament to that.
And perhaps a bizarre end such as his at Stamford Bridge can only be considered befitting for the controversial forward. Costa has now re-signed for Atletico Madrid following a £57 million transfer. Although he would only be donning the Rojiblancos shirt in January after their transfer ban has been uplifted.
However, it seems the forward is still following his former teammates on social media as he was spotted commenting on Michy Batshuyai’s post.
After Batshuyai had posted a photo with a “good night” caption, Diego decided to reply with “Safadinho”. The Spanish word roughly translates to “naughty”. A baffled Michy who couldn’t quite make a sense out of it, replied “que aso” meaning what that?
Aah! What was Diego thinking? Check out the screenshot of Diego commenting on Batshuyai’s post:
A very bizarre video of Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois seems to have gone viral recently. The cameras have caught the former Atletico man performing a strange pre-match ritual before every Belgium game. He is seen touching his chin every time the camera passes him during the national anthem.
Sometimes with his left hand and sometimes with his right, but the Belgium always makes a move for his chiseled jaw.
Well whatever the reason may be for Courtois’s strange activity, it appears to have a magical effect on the Belgium team. The team has an enormous goal difference of 32 goals with 7 wins from 8 matches.
Take a look at Courtois’s pre-match ritual:
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who has been sidelined following a hamstring injury, seems to be enjoying his time away from the field.
The Frenchman has returned to the US to aid his recovery where he was spotted with an unidentified woman.
Pogba had been captured with the same mystery blonde in Los Angeles this July when Manchester United visited the UCLA for their preseason.
Both of them appeared to be enjoying each others presence as they were seen strolling and sharing a laugh in Miami.
There has been no specific date announced for Pogba’s return. Let’s hope he recovers quickly and comes back firing on all cylinders!

It seems Borussia Dortmund star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was a little starstruck when he met Chelsea defender David Luiz recently. The Dortmund forward shared a smiling picture with the Brazilian on his Instagram account on Sunday night.
The caption on the post read: “I’m always a kid when I see a big player like you my friend”
Aubameyang has been in red-hot form in these opening months of the new season, having scored 13 times in 11 games so far.
The post surely will send Chelsea fans into a frenzy as the 29-year-old speed merchant has been constantly linked with a move away from the German club.
Have a look at the snap from Aubameyang’s account:
Every move from Neymar just oozes class! Be it scoring goals, his immaculate free kicks, or his mind-blowing ball control.
The number 10 was at his sparkling best again when PSG met Bordeaux at the weekend. Neymar bagged 2 goals and an assist to his name as PSG thrashed the Bordeaux side 6-2 at Parc des Princes. The Brazilian made several noteworthy contributions to the match as PSG went on to dominate the game.
One such moment that caught the eyes of the spectators was when the former Barcelona man produced an exquisite touch to bring down a high pass. Neymar showcased his flawless touch on the ball as he brilliantly controlled a long ball from Marquinhos who played it from the back.
Well, some might argue it being too flashy, but to execute such a move one needs an aura of self-confidence. Found only in the best players!
Check out the backheel first touch from Neymar below –
Everything that Anthony Martial seems to touch these days turns to gold.
And although the Frenchman was on the bench for the majority of the match against Crystal Palace, he had the crowd on their feet within a few seconds of stepping on the turf as he effortlessly skinned Andros Townsend with a nutmeg.
What made the nutmeg more special was the Palace man’s reaction. Andros Townsend was left humiliated and his reaction felt like the Englishman probably wanted to quit football then and there.
With another brilliant performance from Manchester United at the weekend, the race for the title intensifies as both the clubs from Manchester are drawn on points.
Look at Townsend’s reaction. It says it all:
