3 Players

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal):

With Manchester United hosting Liverpool this weekend, there’s some risk going with those clubs’ attacking players. Not so with Arsenal and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Long-Term Loanees And First Team Phonies: Nine Forgotten Players Still On The Books At EPL Clubs

A Premier League transfer caught my eye over the weekend, not because of the notoriety of the player, but actually for the exact opposite reason. Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker joined Stoke City on a permanent deal following 17 years with the Blues.

Not familiar with the name? Don't feel too bad. Baker made just two first-team appearances during his time in London — FA Cup cameos during the 13-14 and 21-22 seasons. Instead, the 26-year-old had eight loan spells in four countries after being promoted to the Chelsea senior squad in 2014.

Premier League Title Race All But Doomed Courtesy Of Spectacular Kevin De Bruyne Strike

Barring a Manchester City disaster, the 2021-22 Premier League title race appears all but sorted as City defeated second-place Chelsea 1-0 on Saturday. The victory was City’s 12th straight in the league as the defending champions look set to win a fourth Premier League title in the last five seasons.

Despite the close score Manchester City looked the clear favorite throughout the 90 minutes. I apologize to my fellow Americans, but the attack force of Christian Pulisic, Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech was as dangerous as a dandelion.

Who Is This Baby Boy Who Scored That Worldie For Man City Today?

I’ll be honest, I tuned into Manchester City’s third-round FA Cup match against fourth-tier Swindon Town mostly to see how American Zack Steffen performed in goal. I came away impressed with 19-year-old Cole Palmer, who scored a banger of a goal to go with an assist in City’s 4-1 win on Friday.

2021’s Most Successful Coach Snubbed From FIFA Best Finalists; We’re Not At All Surprised

There was but one major global international soccer tournament in 2021. For some reason, the coach who inspired an underdog victory in that competition wasn’t deemed worthy by FIFA to even be a finalist for the organization’s FIFA Best Coach of 2021 award. Not that we’re the least bit surprised; we’ve long learned to expect the worst from FIFA.

Boxing Day Begins With Nine-Goal Thriller Between Manchester City And Leicester

Manchester City and Leicester delivered a Premier League classic on Sunday by exchanging nine goals, including a four-goal salvo in the match's opening 25 minutes from Pep Guardiola's team that the Foxes reduced to a one-goal advantage over the space of 10 ridiculous second-half minutes.

Last Wednesday, Leicester had suffered crushing disappointment in a League Cup quarterfinal defeat to Liverpool. Brendan Rodgers' side had led by margins of 2-0 and 3-1 but was still eliminated in a penalty shootout. 

João Cancelo's Wonder Strike Helps Manchester City Stay Top

NEWCASTLE, England - Manchester City's João Cancelo scored one goal and made another as they overwhelmed struggling Newcastle United 4-0 on Sunday to ensure they will spend Christmas Day top of the Premier League, a position Liverpool occupied in the last three seasons.

The visitors were gifted the opening goal in the fifth minute when Cancelo acrobatically crossed for Rúben Dias to head into an empty net after a mix-up between Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka and defender Ciaran Clark.

Day After Blaming Covid For Shock Champions League Exit, Chelsea’s Match vs. West Ham Postponed

LONDON — Chelsea said its Women's Super League game against West Ham United on Sunday has been postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in its squad, and Manchester City's game against Reading has also been called off.

Chelsea crashed out of the Women's Champions League following a 4-0 defeat by VfL Wolfsburg on Thursday, and more cases were identified when the team arrived home, leading to the cancellation of the West Ham fixture.

Barcelona and Argentina striker Sergio Aguero broke down in tears as he announced his retirement from football on Wednesday due to a heart condition, bringing the curtain down on an 18-year career during which he scored more than 400 goals.

No Estoy Llorando, Tú Estás Llorando: El Emotivo Adiós Al Fútbol Del Kun Agüero

Pasó lo que todos sospechaban que pasaría. Arropado por su familia, sus compañeros en el Barcelona e incluso Pep Guardiola, su ex técnico en Manchester City, Sergio Agüero anunció oficialmente su retiro del fútbol.

"Es un momento muy duro, pero estoy feliz igual por la decisión que tomé, porque lo primero es mi salud. Los médicos han hecho lo mejor y me aconsejaron dejar de jugar", afirmó el Kun entre sollozos y lágrimas.
