(Video) Inch-perfect slide tackle from Liverpool’s Joe Gomez during his brilliant performance v Brazil

As much as England owed their 0-0 draw with Brazil to a resolute all round team performance, it is impossible to ignore the standout performance of young Joe Gomez.

The Liverpool defender who has been making waves at club football this season, marked his first international start with a very impressive performance against the offense-heavy Brazilians.

Gomez was outstanding at the back tirelessly putting in the work and the tackles to ensure another clean sheet for the Three Lions.

Gomez also provided what was one of the more exciting moments of the match when he executed an inch-perfect sliding tackle on Paulinho that just about epitomised his unreal passion and desire for the game. Check it out below –

(Video) A West Ham fan spotted having an episode after Ox’ goal during 4-1 Liverpool win

It is often said in football that you’re at your most vulnerable right after you score. The age-old football adage once more came true to cruelly haunt the Hammers and their fans in their home fixture against Liverpool last week.

Granted West Ham weren’t particularly dominating when they halved the deficit to 2-1, yet the capitulation of the Hammers defense right after the goal from Manuel Lanzini perfectly summed up how quickly things can change in football both on and off the pitch.

A video taken by a West Ham fan captured the entire episode of the Hammers faithful rising in ascendancy following the Lanzini goal and the pure utter despair following the Liverpool goal after just 60 seconds.

The lighting quick goal from Liverpool which effectively ended the contest had the West Ham fans in the video swearing, headbanging and just about completely losing it all.

Pic: Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani with some much needed perspective on social media

After a promising start to the season, Leeds United seems to have completely lost their plot as the Whites suffered yet another defeat, a 2-1 loss against Derby County at Elland Road last night.

Having lost 5 of their last 6 games, the Leeds fanatics were desperately hoping for a positive result from their side, but yet another defeat has resulted in added distress for the fans as dark clouds have started gathering over newly appointed manager Thomas Christiansen’s future.

However, owner Andrea Radrizzani seemed positive about his team’s performance despite the annoying result, as he took to Twitter after the match to address the Leeds fans.

Radrizzani asked the fans to get behind the team and support them in these difficult moments assuring that the good times are bound to make a return in the near future.

(Video) Class Liverpool supporters singing their hearts out despite being 4-0 down during City game

Liverpool were handed an incredibly damaging result at the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City blew them away 5-0 on Saturday. The traveling supporters would have been forgiven for being quiet on witnessing such a catastrophic performance, yet they found a second gear to support their team during a tough time on the pitch.

The away fans dished out one of the most passionate renditions of ‘You Will Never Walk Alone’ to encourage their players. Seeing their team 4-0 down, the Reds supporters refused to bog down and instead spurred their team forward.

Although it proved to be a vain effort in the end, it was a display of spirit from the Liverpool fans. Check out the video below –

Mo Salah’s first run as a Liverpool player is a scary prospect for PL defenders next season (Video)

Premier League giants Liverpool got their pre-season commitments off to a whimper as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Championship side Wigan Athletic. However, their latest acquisition Mohamed Salah, who made his unofficial debut in the match, produced a moment of magic which is enough for the fans to be optimistic ahead of the new season.

In a video clip that emerged online, the Egyptian could be seen picking up the ball (for the first time as a Liverpool player) near the half way line and slaloming past a pair of white and blue shirts to invade the final third. Although the finishing lacked the cutting edge as he racked it up high up in the stands, but the aplomb with which he made the run was surely a moment to behold.

The diminutive midfielder joined the red half of Merseyside on a £34.3 million transfer from Italian side AS Roma, where he spent two highly successful seasons. Salah comes in as a vital addition as Liverpool shore up their arsenal ahead of another Premier League assault and also the added Champions League challenge.

The going is getting tough, and looks like Salah is here to the rescue. The 25-year old was also on target in the game as he leveled the scores with his strike, but it was that run in the game that has espied a couple of eyes.

So Salah can dribble, and dribble well. And the Premier League defenders are warned!

Check out the first run from Salah below –

Pic: Liverpool’s rumored away kit for 2017/18 season has leaked online and it’s a thing of beauty as well

After going so long without any news on when their new kits would be unveiled, Liverpool fans were no doubt pleasantly surprised to see what the next season’s home kit would look like today.

The design paid tribute to a retro look but still came across as a modern-day shirt, which is a hard line to balance.

However, there was no news of their away and third kits… until now, of course.

A reliable source on Twitter, in the form of @FumlerRawk, has leaked the design for Liverpool’s possible away kit for next season.

And just like the home kit, the away one is yet another superb effort by New Balance. The design used is also something of a throwback, as it takes directly from a previous year (1995) away kit.

Check it out for yourself below along with the 1995 kit:

Must See: Jose Mourinho launches an epic ‘no holds barred’ defence of Paul Pogba in his presser pre Man Utd v Rostov

When Paul Pogba’s move to Manchester United was completed in the summer, Manchester United fans were sent into a tizzy. The prodigious Frenchman had left the club under acrimonious circumstances and made himself one of the best in the world. Therefore, the excitement was understandable.

Things didn’t quite work out to plan, however; at least not at first. Despite costing the club a pretty penny, his initial performances left a lot to be desired. And whilst he has found his feet of late, he is yet to have that defining performance in a big game that is the hallmark of greats. As a result, he has come in for a lot of criticism from pundits and fans alike.

Jose Mourinho, who is understandably tired of hearing this criticism, put up quite the defence for the young man during his pre-Rostov presser. Claiming that a lot of the hate for Pogba stems from jealousy, he then went on to state that both he and the club are happy with how Pogba has done so far.

Check out Mourinho defending his star man below:

Antonio Conte had a laugh at the expense of Arsenal during Chelsea presser pre Swansea City

It would be safe to say that if things keep moving ahead as they are now, Chelsea are clearly on course to win the Premier League title this season.

Since Antonio Conte’s arrival at the club, it seems that Chelsea have completely reinvented themselves into a footballing machine that can adapt to any given situation.

Minus a few glitches along the way, Chelsea have firmly established themselves on the top now, and on the opposite end of their winning momentum have been London derby rivals Arsenal.

Wenger’s men began the season on promising terms, but their prospects have only grown bleak with a big Champions League first-leg defeat to Bayern and their chances at having a legitimate shot at the PL title appearing gloomy.

It is perhaps this situation that coincidently resulted into a funny moment for manager Conte during his media interaction before Chelsea’s game against Swansea City tomorrow.

Celtic Are Everywhere!

After consistently flaunting their name on the top spot of the SPL table for the past many weeks, Celtic fans were in for a delightful surprise to see their team flag make an appearance on a new Amazon Prime series.

In episode 7 of the new hit show Sneaky Pete, a scene shot in a bar belonging to gangster Irish Moe (played by Edwin H Bravo) briefly flashes a Celtic flag adorned on the wall in the background.

The flag shows the club crest, emblazoned with 1888 as the date of the club’s inception, placed atop the iconic green and white stripes of Celtic FC.

(Video) Tottenham Loanee Nabil Bentaleb Bagged A Lovely Through Ball Assist In The Bundesliga

It came as a surprise to many of the Tottenham fans when Mauricio Pochettino put highly rated academy graduate Nabil Bentaleb on the loan list. There were many suitors for the 21-year-old, but he eventually chose to join Bundesliga club FC Schalke in hope of playing more first team football.

The youngster has shown good form with his midfield display, having also been bestowed upon the #10 jersey of the club. His latest moment of brilliance came in last night’s 3-1 defeat against the in-form Cologne.

The Tottenham loanee received the ball outside the box after a scuffed clearance, then took the Koln defenders out of the game with a slide-rule through ball into the box for the veteran forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. The Hunter, true to his name, finished clinically, scoring their only goal of the match. Although the young Algerian played well, he was unable to prevent his team from sliding to defeat.
