Emre Can, Liverpool's roving German midfield destroyer, is more than meets the eye, like a transformer. On the surface, he's a big, athletic, crunching central midfielder. When you look a little closer, though, he can do this:
Pedro's left-footed goal against Everton today was so good it almost (almost) made me forget that, as a Tottenham fan, I'm supposed to hate Chelsea – especially at the moment as the Spurs sit four points behind in the race for the Premier League title.

It’s tragic to think about the gross output of the cast of characters in the Manchester derby when bridled with the vast sums of money spent on assembling them.

Every club that’s had an extended run in the Premier League is a perfect example for the transitive property (If a=b and b=c, then a=c) that affects modern football:
Rebecca Lowe nearly hacked up a lung at halftime of the Chelsea-Southampton match Tuesday. The NBC studio host was coughing so hard she had to leave the set while Kyle Martino took over her spot. This all happened live, on air.

Less than a week after suffering a torn ACL and possible damage to his PCL, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is scheduled to visit Dr. Freddie Fu at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Dr. Fu is well known for pioneering the double bundle technique to repair ACL tears, the method that most effectively restores natural knee movement patterns.
According to media reports, the NFL has contributed $12.8 million toward Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium.
The initial payment will likely go towards custom-tailoring the 61,000-seat stadium for hosting NFL games. Tottenham had agreed to a 10-year deal that allows the NFL to host a minimum of two games per season at the stadium, which is not expected to open until the start of the 2018-19 season.
