Sweden are still in the running for the 2018 World Cup. They will have to win a playoff against another UEFA team but have been playing well as of late. Sweden's current squad would be a fun addition to the World Cup, but do you know what would be more fun?
Close your eyes for a minute and picture legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson being hit in the face by a pizza. Keep picturing this until you start giggling uncontrollably, then open your eyes, and rejoice, because this is a thing that actually happened.

It is Zlatan Ibrahimovic's birthday today. Today, October 3, 2017, Zlatan turns 36 in people years. I say in people years because we all know Zlatan is actually ageless. A descendant of the stars.

CSKA Moscow and their old men on defense didn’t have much of a chance against the Belgian on Wednesday. Lukaku scored a brace in Manchester United’s 4-1 romp in the Champions League.
Before we get into our Fantasy Premier League picks, can we all say a quick prayer for Crystal Palace? The poor eagles have yet to score this season, they just lost 5-0 to Manchester City and now they must travel to the theatre of dreams to play Manchester United. God speed, Crystal Palace.
With that said…. First up to have on your fantasy team is:
