Should Kieran Trippier also be included in the conversation for the best right back in the Premier League? The England full-back registered another assist in this season's league, setting up Gordon's goal in Newcastle's 1-0 win over Manchester United on Saturday night.
The so-called best referee in the world looked at that handball and decided it was a penalty. It’s a travesty for Newcastle at Paris that played well and deserved to win against PSG but the point is VAR or no VAR, that's human error!
Newcastle fans do believe it: an amazing bet on the outcome of a historic run in the Champions League!
An amazing statistic emerges from an English bookmaker, in which Newcastle fans are presented as optimistic. Perhaps even over-optimistic. They are betting on their team winning the Champions League. They believe it. Imagine if two consecutive losses didn't count…
Six penalties. More than any other team in the Premier League. Four different penalty takers. Everyone likes to perform with the left foot. Isn't that why Jorginho’s 41/49 career penalty taker is not enough to include him among the players taking responsibility from the penalty spot for Arsenal?
Both Manchester United and Nice in the next Champions League? Sir Jim Ratcliffe do not need to worry!
Sir Jim Ratcliffe "joins" Manchester United, he also owns Nice: "Can they both play in the next Champions League?" This is the constant question of the fans of the "red devils". But they need not to worry. Leipzig and Salzburg have proven it six years ago, UEFA article "5" is clear!
A big moment took place for Kostas Tsimikas in Liverpool's 3-0 win over Brentford, with the Greek left back recording an assist for the first time in his league career in November. He did it with the "red" jersey and the eight-year wait is over! What a reaction from the Greek Scouser a few nights after his poor game in France against Toulouse.
So let’s be honest all of us and not hide behind our finger looking at the tree but missing the whole forest! If VAR goes, we will miss it. True, there’s been mistakes and bad calls, but it’s only fair to say it has helped in making more good decisions than the mistakes it has made. Like it or not VAR is here to stay so let’s get on with it all of us!
He is one of the most exciting forwards in Europe but the statistic that emerged from Darwin Núñez latest shot hitting the crossbar in Liverpool’s clash with Luton really catches the eye: the Uruguayan's four such occasions topping 50% of Premier League teams so far!
It doesn't matter what state Manchester United are in. It's United. They are "wounded". They are coming off a poor performance and defeat to City in the derby, in a game at Old Trafford. Everyone expected a reaction. And here comes Newcastle to prove that at the moment, they are superior. Qualification is big and the Magpies have every right to believe that their first title since 1969 is just around the corner. As long as they don't follow Arsenal's example 45 years ago in the League Cup. .
He is the absolute star of the derby between Barcelona and Real Madrid. He won it with two goals of his own, made history in the 21st century and became only the 4th Englishman of Carlo’s Ancelotti’s team to find the net in such a match after 18 years!
