Pulisic’s GQ Shoot Was Steamy, But Lampard’s Hot Seat Is Now En Fuego

Definitely Maybe: Forecasting Breakout Teams For 2021

Few things in sports are as difficult as predicting results of future games. According to Chris Anderson and David Sally, authors of The Numbers Game, soccer is 50 percent luck and 50 percent skill.

Jamie Carragher Believes It’s Time To Break Up Liverpool’s Front Three

Roberto Firmino may lose his place in Liverpool's attacking trio with Jürgen Klopp's side struggling for goals in recent weeks, former defender Jamie Carragher said.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Firmino scored a combined 183 Premier League goals over the last four campaigns and helped the Merseyside club to their first title in 30 years last season.

Alisson Denies Manchester United At Anfield With Two Huge Saves

A tense, shouty and ultimately intriguing but largely uneventful meeting between Liverpool and Manchester United ended in a 0-0 stalemate at Anfield on Sunday to keep the Red Devils on top of the Premier League after 18 matches while Liverpool fell to third.

Chelsea’s Fran Kirby Brings Manchester United Back Down To Earth

Manchester United’s surprise run at the top of the FA WSL was halted by Chelsea on Sunday with the Blues handing the Red Devils their first defeat of the season and taking their spot at the summit in the process.

The rise of United and legitimacy of its title challenge was highlighted this week by Tobin Heath’s decision to decline a call-up for the USWNT’s January camp in order to stay in Manchester for a couple crucial games, including today’s top-of-the-table clash.  

James Maddison’s Socially Distanced Celebration The Best Highlight Of The Day

When football first returned after the Covid-19 pandemic had shut down all sports, players were told to stay away from their teammates during celebrations. For a short while, footballers heeded those warnings

Unfortunately, much like most Americans have slowly begun to ignore all Covid-19 precautions as deaths surge at alarming rates, footballers soon decided they could celebrate however they like without punishment.

American Antonee Robinson Sees Red In Battle Against Pulisic’s Chelsea

What could have been a showcase battle between two Americans on Saturday turned into a horror show for one of them as Chelsea defeated 10-man Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage. Neither American had a particularly good day at the park, but the Antonee Robinson red card vs Chelsea proved killer for Fulham.

Manchester City Is Going All-In On USWNT Stars With Yet Another American Signing

Manchester City’s transfer policy it quite transparent, but honestly it might be the smartest thing any club has ever done.

There is little doubt the two-time defending world champion USWNT is the best soccer team in the world, so it makes sense for Manchester City to throw all its money at World Cup-winning players. The Citizens signed their third American of the season on Saturday, making Abby Dahlkemper’s move official.
