Man United vs Liverpool: Predict The Actual Score Line And Win #20,000

Manchester United were three points clear of Liverpool when the two met in January and retained that lead thanks to a 0-0 draw at what could still be called, for the last time, fortress Anfield. Burnley ended Liverpool’s 68-game unbeaten run four days later before five further consecutive home defeats ended any chance of retaining the title and left their aspirations of Champions League qualification hanging by a thread. That thread has frayed further after draws against Leeds and Newcastle and defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday could see it snap altogether. Should Chelsea beat Fulham, Jurgen Klopp’s side will be seven points off fourth with four left to play. United, meanwhile, are clinging to the faintest of faint title hopes, and defeat for them will hand City the trophy if Pep Gu...

Simy Nwankwo Equals Aiyegbeni’s Decade-old Goalscoring Record

Simy Nwankwo, Super Eagles striker, on Saturday scored his 17th goal of the season to equal Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s 10-year-old goalscoring record — but his team, Crotone, lost 2-1 to Udinese.
