Cavani wears no 7 shirt in first Man Utd match to send clear message to Ronaldo

Edinson Cavani made his first appearance for Manchester United in the 2021/2022 season, in their 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday. The Uruguay striker was given an extended vacation by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer. However, he was called up from the bench, as United tried to find a way past a resilient Wolves side at the Molineux. Cavani came on wearing the no 7 shirt, which has become hot topic in football circles, because of the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the club. Ronaldo is one of the United legends associated with the shirt, along with David Beckham and Eric Cantona. However, Cavani wearing the shirt on Sunday, all but ends the speculation over if he will hand it over to Ronaldo. Ronaldo missed the game, as he is yet to finalize his mo...

Perfect Spurs go top as Son winner sees off Watford

Tottenham go into the international break top of the Premier League after Heung-min Son's goal handed them a 1-0 home win over Watford. There were early chances for both sides, but the game was in threat of becoming deadlocked before Son came to the rescue on his 200th Premier League appearance, curling in a wicked free-kick cross that bamboozled the Watford defence and goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann (42), finding the far corner. But Spurs were never completely comfortable as both Juraj Kucka and Ismaila Sarr missed opportunities for Watford, though Dele Alli swept a fine chance wide at the other end in the second half and Harry Kane missed two late openings on his first Premier League appearance of the season. It was a third straight 1-0 win for Nuno Espirito Santo's side as they...

Chelsea defender, Zouma, seals move to London rivals after 1-1 draw with Liverpool

Chelsea have sold Kurt Zouma to West Ham in a deal reported to be worth £25million. Zouma will sign a four-year deal with the Blues’ London rivals. The 26-year-old’s exit was confirmed after Thomas Tuchel’s men drew 1-1 with Liverpool in a Premier League game. Zouma made 36 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions last season, helping the team win the Champions League title and finished fourth in the Premier League. His departure will speed up Chelsea’s move for Sevilla’s Jules Kounde. Kounde, 22, is keen on a move to Stamford Bridge, but the Spanish club wants most of any transfer fee paid up front. The exact fee and the structure of payments are yet to be formally agreed, but the two clubs are nearing an agreement. “I just felt like he [Moyes] really wanted me t...

Arsenal to Pay €1million after Losing 2-0 to Brentford

Arsenal paid €1million to Flamengo after Pablo Mari played in their 2-0 defeat to Brentford in the Premier League on Friday, Globo Esporte reports.

Why PSG may not win Champions League despite Messi’s arrival

For the first time in over 20 years, Lionel Messi will not be wearing a Barcelona shirt. The 34-year-old will be playing for Paris Saint-Germain in the 2021/2022 season. Possibly the greatest player to ever represent Barca, he scored 672 times in 778 games. Messi leaves as both the club’s record appearance maker and top goal scorer. In his final press conference on Sunday, Messi vowed he will “fight to win everything” for his next club. He made clear his intention to win a fifth Champions League title.

Tokyo 2020: Serbia beat China to make women’s Olympic basketball semis

Towering forward Jelena Brooks drilled 18 points as Serbia swept past China Wednesday and into an Olympic women’s basketball semi-final against either the United States or Australia.

Van Dijk return doesn’t mean Liverpool will ‘automatically win the league again’, warns Carragher

The former Anfield favourite is wary about the Netherlands international being rushed back too soon after a lengthy spell on the sidelines Jamie Carragher has warned that Virgil van Dijk's return doesn't mean Liverpool will "automatically win the league again".Van Dijk made his first appearance for Liverpool in nine months in their friendly clash with Hertha Berlin last week, having missed the majority of the 2020-21 campaign due to a serious knee injury. The 30-year-old is still working his way back to full fitness after surgery and Carragher doesn't want to see him rushed back onto a competitive stage too early, with the Reds set to open their latest Premier League campaign away at Norwich City on August 14.
