Paul Scholes overlooks Chelsea, names favourites for title

Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has snubbed Chelsea and named Liverpool and Manchester City as the two favourite teams to win the Premier League title this season. Chelsea are currently on top of the Premier League table with 22 points from nine games. Thomas Tuchel’s side are one point ahead of second-place Liverpool and two points ahead of third-place Manchester City. “Seeing Liverpool go to Old Trafford and win so convincingly, I think it will make City worry,” Scholes was quoted by Metro UK as saying. “Chelsea… I’m not sure, they have been great and I think they are better than I actually give them credit for, but I think [the Premier League title] it’s between Liverpool and Manchester City. “I think City watching that today, in the Champions League or the Prem...

Arsenal’s Smith Rowe is more clinical than Ronaldo – Gary Neville

Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has claimed that Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe, is ‘more clinical’ than Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo when the Portugal captain was at his age. Smith Rowe, who joined Arsenal’s academy at the age of 10, has scored two Premier League goals so far this season for the Gunners. The 21-year-old has established himself as a key player under Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta. The England youngster alos inherited the No.10 shirt at Arsenal earlier this year following Mesut Ozil’s departure. “Ronaldo now for 10, 15 years and Mo Salah for five, six years, and beyond.

Reason Pogba may leave Man Utd after 5-0 defeat to Liverpool revealed

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, will leave Old Trafford if the Red Devils continue to lose matches. This claim was made by Chelsea hero, Frank Leboeuf. Leboeuf said this while reacting to Man United’s 5-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday. Pogba was sent off in the second half of the match following a reckless tackle on Naby Keita. But Leboeuf believes Pogba’s red card came as a result of his ‘frustration’ at being left on the bench. “I don’t know what’s going on there,” Leboeuf told ESPN. “Seeing that he didn’t start today for the most important game of the season for Manchester United, it made me think that it could be the end for Paul Pogba. “He must be very upset, he was frustrated, which is why he was red carded.

Klopp delivers verdict on Ronaldo red card claim as Liverpool humbles Man Utd

Liverpool head coach, Jurgen Klopp, believed Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, should have been sent off during his side’s Premier League 5-0 win against the Red Devils on Sunday.

Cornet double earns Burnley point at Saints

Two of the Premier League's lowest-scoring sides played out a four-goal thriller as Maxwel Cornet's double earned Burnley a 2-2 draw at Southampton. Cornet nodded the visitors ahead with 13 minutes gone from Matt Lowton's pinpoint cross, but Tino Livramento equalised four minutes before half-time by powering home Nathan Redmond's corner. Southampton took the lead for the first time in the game when Ibrahima Diallo intercepted James Tarkowski's poor ball forward and released Armando Broja, who raced through before finding the bottom corner with his second goal in as many games. Cornet would have the last laugh though, as he pulled Burnley level out of nowhere with a first-time effort from outside the box after an Ashley Westwood flick. Burnley remain winless an...

Speculation regarding a move away from the Etihad Stadium for Sterling is starting to build heading towards the winter transfer window, with starting berths under Pep Guardiola proving hard to come by. The England international has admitted that, amid talk of interest from Barcelona, he may be tempted to take on a new challenge outside of the Premier League, but De Bruyne is hoping to see the 26-year-old stay put.

Redknapp names team that is ‘one of the favourites for relegation’

Sky Sports pundit, Jamie Redknapp, has said Newcastle is one of the favourites for relegation this season. According to him, only a big effort in the January transfer window can save the Magpies from the drop. Newcastle went ahead within five minutes against Tottenham on Sunday, but eventually lost 3-2 at St James’ Park. They have now failed to win in their first eight Premier League fixtures and remain in 19th place. “This (Newcastle) squad right now is one of the favourites for relegation – you can see it in the mistakes they make every single week. A new manager might change it but it’s hard. “The bubble was burst. If Saint-Maximin doesn’t get the ball, it’s hard to see where the quality is coming from. The first goal was excellent but after that, the patterns of play w...

Man Utd players question Sancho’s £73m move

Some players in the Manchester United squad are privately concerned about £73m summer signing Jadon Sancho. According to the UK Times, they are questioning whether the club made a mistake by signing him from Borussia Dortmund. Sancho scored 50 times and made 67 assists for the Bundesliga side after joining from Manchester City in 2017. However, since the 21-year-old arrived at Old Trafford, he has neither scored nor assisted in 10 appearances in all competitions. It is now understood there are growing concerns within Manchester United that Sancho is struggling to adapt to the demands of the Premier League. It is claimed players and coaches at Old Trafford have also been unimpressed by both Sancho’s contributions and attitude in training, leading to “major question marks” o...

Harry Kane nets first PL goal of season as Spurs spoil Newcastle party

Harry Kane scored his first Premier League goal of the season as Tottenham condemned Newcastle to a 3-2 defeat in their first game under new ownership. There was a festival atmosphere ahead of kick-off as the Newcastle fans welcomed their new owners into the directors' box. It began well on the field too as Callum Wilson nodded home inside two minutes to send the stands into raptures. However, things soon unravelled as Tottenham quickly took the lead. Tanguy Ndombele (17) curled home a wonderful equaliser, before Kane (22) opened his Premier League account for the season. His strike had initially been ruled out for offside, but a VAR review overturned the decision and the goal stood. But an incident in the stands towards the end of the first half saw play suspended for 24 minute...

Man United must fix ‘mentality and tactics’, says Pogba

Paul Pogba delivered a withering assessment of the state of Manchester United’s form after a 4-2 defeat to Leicester left the Red Devils already five points adrift in the Premier League title race. United have not won an English top-flight title since 2013, but were expected to challenge this season after splashing out to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane in the transfer window. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have taken just one point from a possible nine against Aston Villa, Everton and Leicester in their last three league games. United also crashed out of the League Cup last month and are under pressure for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Atalanta after losing their opening group game to Swiss side Young Boys. “If we want to win the title,...

Ogbonna header secures West Ham win at Everton

West Ham leapfrogged Everton in the Premier League as Angelo Ogbonna's 74th-minute header was enough to secure a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Goodison Park on Super Sunday. In a game low on quality in the final third, Ogbonna rose to meet Jarrod Bowen's set-piece as Everton suffered their first home defeat of the season after three consecutive victories. Alex Iwobi and Salomon Rondon both missed good chances either side of half-time to put the hosts in front but West Ham recorded successive league wins at Goodison Park for the first time since 1930 on David Moyes' return to his former club. The result moves West Ham up to sixth in the table as Everton slip to seventh and miss out on the chance to move into the top four.
