Who knew when Mo Salah joined Liverpool last summer that the Egyptian would go on to become one of the most deadliest forwards in the world but what was even more unexpected was his elite bromance with defender Dejan Lovren.
Liverpool fans online have been sharing evidence of the cute friendship developing between the two players and there are no signs of stopping.
Besides the 5-0 thrashing of FC Porto in the Champions League last week, the social media activity from the two has been one of the major talking points of the Reds fanbase in the last few days.
Check out the pictures of the unexpected bromance between the duo below –
Liverpool and Spurs shared the spoils after a thrilling 2-2 draw at Anfield last night.
Victor Wanyama struck one of the goals of the season as he collected a loose ball outside of the box and absolutely thraikered it in to get Spurs on levels terms after Mo Salah had put Liverpool ahead early in the first half.
The 80th minute blistering strike from the substitute not only rejuvenated the Spurs players on the pitch but it also brought forth one amazing piece of commentary.
It seems the French commentators on SFR Sport enjoyed the goal as much as any other Tottenham Hotspur supporter out there, check out the brilliant commentary below –
Charismatic Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp just couldn’t help but swear live on television after their thrilling 4-3 win against leaders Manchester City earlier today.
Liverpool scored 3 goals in less than 9 minutes in the second half to take a 4-1 lead but also allowed City to comeback by conceding 2 late goals.
Nobody was as tense as the Reds manager and it showed in his interview after the game.
Kloppo probably still used to the German media, check out the hilarious moment from the post-match interview below –
Absolutely no holds barred destruction from Jamie Carragher on Instagram earlier today.
The Liverpool legend was at his brutal best while replying to an innocent looking comment from fellow Englishman Phil Neville.
The former Everton and Manchester United defender was probably not ready for such treatment when he decided to comment on Carra’s Instagram post about his interview with Liverpool new boy Virgil Van Dijk at Anfield.
Absolutely no regards for Phil Neville’s life, check out the banter from Carra below –
An absolute dream debut for new Liverpool signing Virgil van Dijk as the Dutchman pulled off a towering header to send the Reds into the next round of the FA Cup.
Anfield took it up a notch as well as the cameras captured the goosebumps-inducing atmosphere inside the ground after Van Dijk’s match-winner.
A fantastic Gylfi Sigurdsson goal had got Everton back on level terms after a James Milner penalty had seen the Reds go ahead before the new boy made it all about himself in the most glorious manner.
Check out the scenes at Anfield after VVD’s goal below –
It looks like Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero was involved in a car accident in Amsterdam last night.
The Argentine was in a cab when the the accident took place and was apparently only saved because he chose to wear his seat belt.
Rumors suggests that the diminutive forward might have suffered a fractured rib and will be out of action for 2 months.
Scary news for the fans and hopefully the striker recovers well after this. Via @r0eland, alleged pictures from the crash site can be seen below –
Leeds’ United’s 16/17 season was beset with inconsistencies. From being 4th in the Championship table in the 1st week of April, they choked their way down to 7th towards the end, thereby missing on a promotion playoff spot.
However, the fans saw the season in a positive manner, with their 7th place finish their highest in recent years. The core of the squad with manager Garry Monk and star players like Chris Wood, Pontus Jansson and Rob Green reeked of greater things and Leeds United fans finally felt an air of solidity after years of turmoil.
However, all that changed when Garry Monk resigned from the club. If that was not humiliating enough, the subsequent joining of Middlesborough has drawn the ire of the Leeds fans like nothing else.
The Board, fans, players would all love to get one back at Monk, and preparations are on full earnest at Elland Road to find an able replacement.
However, it seems like club chairman Andrea Radrizzani is looking for solutions from within. Radrizzani’s recent Twitter activity indicates that the management maybe thinking of promoting assistant manager, Pep Clotet to the driver’s seat.
A move Leeds fan certainly won’t oppose to. See the tweet Radrizzani like below:
The anticipated opening of the transfer window is still a few days away, however, most try to sign their targeted players early lest they face competition from other clubs later on.
One club that has been conducting its transfer business quite smartly this season is Manchester City, who had a rather disappointing 16/17 season going by their high aspirations and ostentatious spendings. Pep Guardiola would definitely like to prove his philosophy is not a farce and reaffirm his status as the world’s numero uno manager.
City have already bought Ederson and Bernardo Silva, two players that subscribe to Guardiola’s fast moving and passing style and they are now linked with a host of world class superstars ranging from Alexis Sanchez to Virgil Van Djik.
Another player that has apparently attracted the attention of the Citizens is Tottenham’s Kyle Walker. The fullback was rumored to have a fall out with Mauricio Pochettino as the Spurs boss had doubts over Walker’s fitness and the performances in training. If minutes are indicative of a player’s likeliness to stay, then Walker looks likely to be out of the door.
However, Spurs fans still love the right back, as an old clip of Walker where he is seen pledging allegiance to his club, has started doing the rounds again. During an Instagram live session by one of the Spurs players back in February this year, Walker was caught on cam saying “Tottenham Till I Die”.
Maybe Spurs fans should send an image of the 16/17 league table to Walker, while highlighting Tottenham’s and City’s positions. That should help, shouldn’t it?

Age old wisdom says that defenders defend, midfielders pass, wingers dribble and strikers score goals. However, we live in different times where a player is expected to take a variety of roles on the pitch and be a jack-of-all-trades.
With forwards exhibiting their range of trickery on a regular basis, can the defenders stay away from long?
In a recent clip going viral online amongst the Manchester United fans, shows new boy Victor Lindelof leaving a Portugal player chasing the dust during an outing with Sweden.
Manchester United fans are already pleased with the signing who cost the club a little over €35 million. 52 interceptions, 7 blocks and an impressive 119 clearances prove why Jose Mourinho has been trying to get his hands on the Swede since January.
Lindelof’s ball playing skills add to his already impressive CV. Manchester United seem to have found an able partner for Eric Bailly in defence as the club looks to fight for silverware on all four frontiers.
Check out Lindelof’s ridiculous turn below:
The dawn of a new season brings new kits and although most clubs haven’t officially released the images of their new attire, the digital age doesn’t permit things to remain clandestine for long, and pictures of the kits are leaked well before their official announcement.
The latest club to have clicks of their home kit leaked is the Stratford based club, West Ham. Reports seem to suggest that the shirt has already gone on sale in Thailand.
As with the previous two campaign with Umbro, it’s a mainly claret number with sky blue sleeves which are accompanied by the brand’s classic diamond pattern. However unlike the previous season where the sleeve was purely sky blue, this time they have a coating of claret as well.
It’s the Hammers’ third season working alongside Umbro, who signed a five-year deal with the club in April 2015. Umbro has played it safe with West Ham’s kit design this time around. Check out the shirt design being sold in Thailand below –
