Putting prime Barcelona to shame, Chelsea fans as well as neutrals were left in amazement as the Blues put together an impressive passage of play before their 2nd goal against Brighton & Hove Albion earlier today.
Telepathic communication between the Chelsea players as Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi and Willian put together a string of passes as Antonio Conte’s side bombed forward with pure intent, purpose and menace.
New signing Alvaro Morata is bound to have a hard time getting back into the lineup if the front three continue their superb display.
Definitely a contender for one of the best team goals of the season, check out the full movement & the goal below –
Perhaps the most exciting moment for Arsenal fans during the drab affair last night. The Gunners welcomed Serbian outfit Red Star Belgrade at the Emirates for their Europa League encounter and it would be safe to say that the home fans would have rather spent their evening doing something else.
A 0-0 draw with the likes of Walcott and Coquelin producing one of their worst displays but Arsenal fans did enjoy this brilliant save from goalkeeper Matt Macey on the night.
His height (6’5″) was a big factor, but the 23-year-old readjusted his body in time to pull off the save. Check it out below –
French international Georges-Kevin N’Koudou joined Spurs last season from Marseille. And it would be safe to say that the 22-year-old hasn’t exactly had the best of times at Tottenham after struggling for game time under Pochettino.
The young winger expressed his opinion on Tottenham’s Champions League draw by tweeting about the apparent ‘Group of Death’ Spurs have been placed in.
The tone of his tweet was encouraging, reflecting that he was ready to take up the tough challenge his team was about to face. But, to his surprise, the tweet got criticised by Spurs fans on Twitter. So much that he was later forced to delete the tweet.
It is unclear as to why N’Koudou’s remarks were taken negatively by the fans, but an incident that took place early this year could have been one of the reasons why he faced the condemnation.
We’re approaching the end of the transfer window, and there still seems to be no end to all the speculation related to Virgil van Dijk’s future. The Southampton centre-back has been linked to Liverpool since the beginning of the transfer window, and despite a lot of twists and turns in the the saga, the Reds still look like the strongest potential suitors for him.
Instagram user @Philipuby, a good friend of Van Dijk, has become a very popular name in the Liverpool camp lately, mainly due to the cryptic messages he keeps posting about his pal on social media.
His posts somehow always leave the hint that the Dutch international’s next destination will be Anfield, teasing all Liverpool fans in the process.
The friend was back at it again on Instagram with his arcane messages during Liverpool’s Champions League play-off win against Hoffenheim. He was spotted putting up three photos on his Instagram story, all of which were related to Liverpool.
One of the photos even had an airplane emoji, suggesting that a move may be imminent. But the posts were then deleted soon.
It wasn’t really a debut to remember for Chris Wood in Burnley’s Carabao Cup second round match against Blackburn Rovers. Following a switch from Leeds United to Burnley just a few days ago, he started on the bench but was called into action early as fellow summer signing Jonathan Walters suffered an injury.
The former Leeds man must be feeling happy to start his Burnley career on a winning note as his side won 2-0, but he’ll be expecting to put up better performances in the future.
The New Zealand international missed numerous chances in the game, but one particular chance that he couldn’t convert surely made him the butt of some jokes amongst Leeds fans.
Leeds fans’ love for Chris Wood quickly turned into hate after the striker refused to play against Sunderland before his move to Burnley.
And the same fans would have thoroughly enjoyed how their former man is faring out in Burnley colours, with £15m they received for him being the icing on the cake.
After a 5-0 victory against Astana at Celtic park in the first leg of the Champions League playoff, the Hoops must’ve thought that the return leg in Kazakhstan will be trouble-free.
But contrary to Celtic’s expectations, the Kazakhstan Premier League champions actually put up a very brave show at Astana park.
It was 1-1 at half time and an inspired Astana went on to score 3 more goals in quick succession in the second half. They needed to score 3 more goals in 20 minutes without a reply to pull off the impossible.
It was all going according to the plan for the Kazakh side until Celtic’s new signing Olivier Ntcham struck home on the 80th minute to spoil the party.
Everyone in the Celtic camp took a sigh of relief, but it looked like assistant manager Chris Davies, who was seated right beside Rodgers, got a bit too carried away as he could be seen jumping from his seat and punching the air whilst shouting on top of his voice after Ntcham scored the all-important goal.
Check out the reactions from the Celtic bench below –
