EPL: Arsenal tipped to finish in top four this season

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has said Arsenal are the outsiders to watch in the race for the Premier League’s top four this season.

EPL: Alan Shearer disagrees with Solskjaer after Man Utd’s Defeat

Newcastle United legend, Alan Shearer, has disagreed with Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, following his comment after the Red Devils’ 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa in the Premier League over the weekend. Aston Villa defeated Man United in the Premier League, thanks to Kortney Hause’s late strike.

Shame that Kanu, Okocha didn’t get 100 caps with Super Eagles – Enyeama

Former Nigeria goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has said it is a shame that former players like Austin Okocha, Peter Rufai, and Nwankwo Kanu, didn’t play at least 100 matches for the national team.

No Artiste can reign forever – Ruggedman

Nigerian rapper Ruggedman, in a new interview, has said that no artiste can reign forever.
