The lengthy break in Liverpool’s schedule has allowed Jurgen Klopp to utilise it as a “mini pre-season”. Klopp and his team are undergoing a training camp in the Spanish seaside strip of La Manga before their next match on 27th February. The warm weather training camp is the perfect opportunity to refresh the players and restore confidence in the team.
With the impressive victory against Spurs, Liverpool halted their downward spiral after an impressive first half of the season. A player whose importance can not be stated enough in this campaign is new signing Sadio Mane.
The Senegalese is the frontrunner for Liverpool’s ‘Player of the Year’ in his first season and seems to be enjoying every bit of it.
Maybe even too much as Mane tried to sneak into the winning team’s photoshoot after a friendly inter-squad match at La Manga. James Milner and the rest of his 5-a-side were having none of it though.
Watch the hilarious moment below!
Manchester United almost booked their tickets for UEFA Europa League’s last-16 following a resounding 3-0 thumping of Saint Etienne at Old Trafford on Thursday.
With all three goals coming from Manchester United’s legendary striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, there looks to be a bleak chance for Etienne to make a come back from this in the returning leg next week.
While the game was replete with some brilliant individual performances, the win was particularly important for Paul Pogba as the Frenchman had a point to prove to his elder brother Florentin Pogba playing opposite him.
Although Mrs. Porba was supporting both her sons by wearing each of their shirts in the game’s two halves, it was the younger brother who clearly stole the show.
Pogba came excruciatingly close to scoring what could have been a sensational goal involving an exquisite turn with a breathtaking shot that missed the goal by just inches.

Manchester United’s 3-0 win over St. Etienne in the Europa League round of 32 game was nothing less than the Zlatan Ibrahimovic Show. The Swede international scored his first hat-trick in United red and all but ensured their passage into the next round, giving United fans some midweek cheer.
The fact that their side so easily outclassed the French team was enough to ensure that United fans were in a celebratory mood throughout the game, chanting and singing away on various occasions. Amusingly, one such instance of fan chanting that occurred was purely for banter, at the expense of St. Etienne’s medic.
The medic, surprisingly dressed in chinos and a black jacket, got a bit of stick from United fans, who loudly chanted “Chinos” at his direction.

Tottenham’s resounding form that they had been fairly consistent in maintaining has come to abrupt standstills on multiple occasions, but it seems there are just no full stops when it comes to leaks of the club’s new kits for the next season.
There have already been three leaks of 2017-18’s potential home and away kits before, two of which depicted diagonal stripes with small changes in the club crest and sponsor logo.
The third leak by footyheadlines.com had predicted a new modification to the club’s crest, which involved a reminiscence of the 1950s take on the Spurs logo, back when the crest was encircled with a shield around it.
A newer leak by the same source has now predicted that apart from the Nike Swoosh and the shield crest, the iconic white shirt will feature navy applications around the collar and sleeve cuffs.

In the world of British football journalism, there has always been a long history of fans clashing with daily tabloids for their controversial reportage.
The Sun, for example, has previously been subject of massive criticism by Liverpool fans who have also called or its boycott as well.
And if their recent article calling for Arsenal squad’s cull is given deeper scrutiny, The Sun is now going to draw the wrath of Gooners too.
The newspaper recently came up with a full page feature titled “Gunners: A Team in Crisis” suggesting which players should leave Arsenal and which ones should stay following the club’s dismal loss to Bayern Munich.
Comparing players’ statistics, the tabloid suggested 14 Gunners who need to be booted out of the club, a ridiculous list that included integral players like Ox, Ozil, Monreal and new boy Granit Xhaka.

After a consistent winning momentum of many Premier League games came to an abrupt end, Tottenham’s 2-0 loss at Anfield last week was a big disappointment for fans.
But if social media reactions of Tottenham fans are given a more serious scrutiny, mere disappointment would be an understatement to describe their predicament.
@PaddyPower has taken pains to compile ridiculous reactions of Spurs fans following their team’s defeat at the hands of Liverpool, and their outrage couldn’t be any more hilarious.
From abusing Scousers for mocking Mane’s mauling of Spurs, to references of fans’ mental instability, and personal jibes towards each others’ education, these reactions of fans had almost everything you could imagine.
Check out this hilarious video of Spurs fans’ outrage with dramatic narration below!
Despite being in sublime goal-scoring form for Chelsea, the biggest narrative around Diego Costa is the fact that he’s supposedly discontent with life in London and looking for a big money move to China. The situation was bad enough to warrant him getting a telling off from Antonio Conte.
Whilst the winter transfer window arrived and went, there is still speculation that a deal could be reached in the summer. The fact that he was given a speaking to by his manager and his subsequent but temporary dropping meant he did at least find himself distracted by the offer.
However, to claim the striker is unhappy is a bit of a stretch, especially considering the recent evidence made available. Chelsea’s official Twitter account recently posted a video of the squad in training. Costa was front and centre of the video, dancing around like the lovable goofball that he can be.
