Manchester City won 3 – 1 over Everton and close the gap on Liverpool

Manchester City secured the reigning champions and won over Everton after a hard-fought match thanks to two-goal salvo in the second half. Now they are just within five points of Liverpool.

Gabriel Jesus to leap forward and nod beyond Jordan Pickford after Kevin de Bruyne collected possession on the edge of the penalty area and lifted in a first-time cross. The Belgian midfielder had supplied a sumptuous assist which led to the opening goal of the match.

But ten minutes later Everton hit back. Dominic Calvert-Lewin ensured the home side’s leveller by delivering the decisive touch on the goalline. Seamus Coleman lobbed a deft effort over the head of City stopper Ederson while Substitute Alex Iwobi squeezed a pass out wide and showed his quick feet.

Bearing down on goal, Sterling could only place his effort wide of the post although Riyad Mahrez had slotted a defence-splitting pass through the England star. Raheem Sterling squandered a golden opportunity from close range. The players of Man City proved that they could restore their lead on the hour mark.

Mahrez tried his best to dribble down the right. Aguero received the ball near the byline and he crossed. Pickford kicked the ball away, but six yards out and Sterling nearly missed, the ball is leaned back and blootered off bythe underside of the post. But luckily it bounces down and go over the line.

And that’s end of the game! City is just behind the leading Liverpool with five points, but it means they had to work hard to win the next match. Everton ranks fifteen, above the bottom three with two points. But their display against City is much-improved and Marco Silva surely gets goodwill and a little time.

Liverpool set a new record after the victory over Newcastle

Liverpool set a new Premier League record after winning 3 – 1 against Newcastle in the fifth round.

The win against Newcastle also helped Liverpool set a new record in the history of the Premier League when it became the first team to have 14 consecutive wins and score at least 2 goals per game. Liverpool have scored a total of 40 goals, conceding only 11 goals and keeping clean sheets 5 times in this series.

Newcastle drew and lost at Anfield in the Premier League, since the 2-0 win in April 1994. But four points were won from the last two rounds, including the 1-0 victory at the big Tottenham team in the third round, more or less confident when Steve Bruce’s teachers and students entered the match early in the fifth round.

That belief was reinforced with the opening goal in the seventh minute in a quick counterattack. Liverpool reacted somewhat slowly after the goal. Klopp’s pupils often kept the ball above 75%, but they did not have enough sharp coordination to be dangerous. Newcastle kicked 5-4-1 and defended very solidly with the midfield playing deep.

It was not until the middle of the first half that Liverpool was pushed back, with the speed ball on the wings of Alexander-Arnold – Robertson. And the one that gave them a 1-1 goal.

Removing the psychological burden, Liverpool constantly caused waves towards the opponent. The pain of Origi, having to take a break to make room for Firmino – the striker was kept by Klopp for the Champions League midweek – from the 37th minute made the hosts more dangerous. Just three minutes after entering the field, the Brazilian striker immediately made a mark, with a dispute of stealing the ball from near the center of the field, and then poking Mane. The goalkeeper Dubravka rushed out, but could not break the ball and the Senegalese striker easily put the ball into the empty net.

After Wijnaldum, Arrnold, Firmino, Robertson and Van Dijk took turns kicking out, denied by the goalkeeper and Newcastle defender, Liverpool also succeeded in widening the gap.

Liverpool have three more points to stay at the top of the table. They also extended the winning streak in the Premier League to 14 games, the unbeaten circuit at home in the Premier League to 42 games. The 3-1 victory over Newcastle is also the 22nd consecutive unbeaten match of Jurgen Klopp. These are meaningful spiritual stepping stones for Liverpool before they start the campaign to protect the throne in the Champions League with a trip on Napoli at Wednesday September 18.

MU Great Chelsea battle right in the opening round of the Premier League

Manchester United will face Chelsea in the opening game of the English Premier League in the 2019/2020 season, while Manchester City and Liverpool only have to meet their opponents.

The Premier League schedule for the 2019/2020 season has just been officially announced. Notably, the opening day of the new season in the mist will see the confrontation between the two greatest teams in England: Manchester United and Chelsea.

Specifically, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team will encounter Chelsea at 22:30 on Sunday 11 August. This is the most remarkable match in the first round. At the first full season with MU, Solskjaer had to face a very difficult challenge even though his opponent Chelsea no longer had Eden Hazard and could not sign any new player in this summer.

Currently, the transfer of MU still makes fans worried. There are no truly outstanding faces who landed Old Trafford to join the Red Devils to carry out the revolution of human resources.

Meanwhile, the opening match will take place between Liverpool and rookie Norwich City on 2:00 am on Saturday 10 August. Both Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester City promise a smooth start when they encounter opponents who are easy to breathe.

However, the joy of Champions League side Tottenham is only stopped in the first round. The first 4 matches, Tottenham will have to face both Man City and Arsenal – very heavy opponents.

Meanwhile, Man City has a relatively favorable schedule. The first 6 rounds, Pep Guardiola’s team only have to meet West Ham, Tottenham, AFC Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion, Norwich City and Watford. The difficulty came only in November when Man City had to meet Chelsea and MU in a row.

Chelsea, the third team last season, will fight without Hazard in the squad. After a trip to Manchester United in the first round, Chelsea will host Leicester City on home soil before meeting two rookies Norwich and Sheffield United.

Dortmund – German team changed English football

Dortmund will make a trip to Tottenham’s stadium in a round of 1/8 Champions League. But for many people this is like a home game of the German team.

In the UK, coaches who have worked in Dortmund are making a lot of buzz. Juergen Klopp is flying with Liverpool and competing fiercely with the City. Daniel Farke, former U23 coach Dortmund, is helping Norwich to be second in the Championship.

Quite a few English clubs want to copy Dortmund’s recruitment system. Arsenal even invited the head of the Ruhr team, Sven Mislintat, to talk about the short time between the parties.

British fans always wanted to be the center of the club like in Germany. And Dortmund, with 80,000 fans filling their home matches with low ticket prices and the level of participation in high club management, is the target they aim for.

In addition, there is a British star shining brightly in Dortmund. It’s Jadon Sancho. He is a pioneer for a new generation of British talents who are willing to go abroad for a young age.

In the summer of 2017, Dortmund’s spending of £ 8m to bring Sancho back from City was considered a farce. Now his value has increased to £ 105 million according to CIES football research agency.

Man City under Pep Guardiola is currently the second ranked team from the bottom up for players from the academy to play in the Premier League this season. The most competitive teams for players from the academy are Man United, Tottenham and Arsenal. In total, Foden only had 427 minutes to play in the Premier League and Champions League in his entire career compared to Sancho’s 2.212 minutes in Dortmund.

“The biggest benefit is that they have the opportunity to play,” said Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc. Because of budget differences, perhaps the German teams are forced to give some young players a chance to play.

Liverpool and the most memorable Champions League season in history

The final match between Liverpool and Tottenham cannot change the truth when the 2018/19 Champions League is the most attractive in the history flow of this prestigious tournament.

After 10 years, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are no longer taking over the Champions League. Liverpool is a game changer with Juergen Klopp’s unrelenting boom. However, that is not the only imprint of the UEFA Champions League 2018/19.

It is impossible to talk about the Champions League in 2018/19 but ignore the incredible comeback. This is the season that deserves to go down in history with many memorable emotions. Choking scenarios take place continuously, directly pushing the world into a real roller coaster in the knockout round.

On March 6, 2019, no one imagined Ole Solskjaer’s Manchester United could turn against PSG after losing 0-2 at the eighth round in the table to determine Marcus’s 90 and 3 minute score. Rashford. What is the most dramatic thing here?

The answer is that Rashford has never scored 11m before in a professional career. So the number 10 of MU dare to perform and defeat goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. Stress, daring, arguing and risking the match at the Parc des Princes became the undeniable highlight of the Champions League 2018/19.

Nearly a week after the wonderful night at the Parc des Princes, the whole European stage moved to Juventus’ Allianz Stadium, where Cristiano Ronaldo showed himself to be the king of Europe’s most prestigious arena with a hat-trick to help Juventus going upstream, thereby knocking Atletico Madrid 3-0 to continue after losing 0-2 in the first leg.

The semi-finals continue to be climbing climbers not for the faint of heart. Liverpool was destroyed at the Camp Nou after Leo Messi’s perfect night with a score of 3-0. Leave it at Anfield, where defender Andrew Robertson wrote on They Player’s Tribune that he “felt sorry for those who had to go there”, Liverpool crushed Barca 4-0 to advance to the final.

Spurs need 45 minutes of the second half of the second leg in the Netherlands to turn every effort and advantage of Ajax’s three goals into a cup. A hat-trick with Moura’s goal in the final minute of the second half brought Tottenham into the first Champions League final in history.

Lionel Messi’s middle son cheers for Real Madrid to annoy his brother



Lionel Messi has confessed that his three-year-old son Mateo cheers for Real Madrid to annoy his brother Tiago. When it comes to his football allegiance, he chooses to take a contrarian position.

Messi said that sometimes the television was on and his son Mateo cheered Madrid’s goals to make his brother Tiago get annoyed.

Maeo enjoys winding up several of his family members, not only his brother Tiago. Messi’s middle son has even made fun of him over recent collapse of Barcelona against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League. He also said with a laugh that when he was playing at home and was going for a kick-about with Mateo, his son said to him that “You’re Barca and I’m Liverpool, because I’ll beat you’. He’s got a lot to learn,” .

Messi has played down his country’s chances of winning the tournament and is getting ready to represent Argentina at the Copa America in Brazil.

The 31-year-old football star has twice reached the final of the competition, in 2015 and in 2016, however, they were beaten by Chile on penalties on both occasions.

 Having contested four of the past five finals, however, Argentina have lost all of them and their last continental triumph came back in 1993 in Ecuador. And Messi is not convinced that they will be challenging in 2019 because  he believes that the squad is undergoing a transition. He said that Argentina was going through a process of change, but they went with the same excitement as always.

Messi admits he is still feeling the frustration with Barcelona’s treble dreams having dashed in the closing weeks of the campaign.

Despite their victory at La Liga, a shock 4-0 defeat to Liverpool in the UEFa Champions League semi-final’s second leg saw them crash out of Europe, while they were beaten by Valencia in the Copa del Rey final.

In spite of those disappointments, Messi has felt good in the Argentina camp with Nicaragua on Saturday.
