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.

Angeliño Becomes Latest Former Player To Hit Out At Guardiola

Angeliño, RB Leipzig's 24-year-old left back, has enjoyed the strongest season of his career so far. While his attacking talent has always been a strength, he has taken things up a notch this campaign with eight goals and 11 assists in 31 games. 

The Spaniard, who had been on loan in the Bundesliga since January 2020, made his move to Leipzig permanent this month on a $23 million deal that will become official in the summer.

Manchester City’s 19th Straight Win Says It All, Really

Manchester City reached the preposterous milestone of 19 straight wins across all competitions following Wednesday’s 2-0 Champions League Round of 16 “away” victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach. Goals either half from Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus turned it into a training exercise at Puskás Aréna in Budapest as Gladbach only landed one shot on target. 

Women’s Champions League Last 16 Draw Looks Tastier Than Ever

Seven-time champion and holder Olympique Lyonnais will play Brøndby in the last 16 of the Women's Champions League, while Chelsea will face Atlético Madrid following Tuesday's draw.

Manchester City will meet Fiorentina, Barcelona entertains Fortuna Hjorring and Paris Saint-Germain has been drawn against Sparta Prague.

Last season's finalist Wolfsburg faces Norwegian side LSK Kvinner, while Bayern Munich faces Kazakhstan's BIIK Kazygurt.

The two-legged last-16 ties will be played on March 3-4 and 10-11.

Everyone Wanted To See An Ederson PK Attempt; Instead We Got An Even Better Ederson Assist

When the VAR awarded Manchester City a penalty in the first half against Tottenham on Saturday, soccer Twitter erupted. The Citizens have had a woeful record from the spot, missing nine since the start of last season. But there was one player who had yet to attempt a penalty kick, and social media demanded he be allowed to take it.

Twitter wanted Ederson to score a penalty, but Pep Guardiola left them sorely disappointed when Rodri calmly converted to send City on its way to a 3-0 demolition of Jose Mourinho’s Spurs. But Ederson still found a way to contribute offensively.

Caroline Weir’s Humiliating Chip Dashes Man Utd’s Title Hopes

Manchester United has arguably been the biggest surprise in women’s football this season. Casey Stoney’s side, with new signings Tobin Heath and Christen Press, surged to the top of the table in just its second season in the Women’s Super League. It looked like the Red Devils could actually challenge the established elites — Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal — for the league crown.

Those hopes were dashed on Friday as Man City humbled United 3-0 in a one-sided Manchester Derby, capped off by a stunning chip shot from Caroline Weir.

The Numbers Don't Lie When It Comes To Ranking Premier League Goalkeepers

Life as a goalkeeper is difficult. A keeper can have fantastic game, but if one ball gets past them, they receive all of the blame.

Stats like goals against or save percentage have been used haphazardly to evaluate goalkeepers for years, but they fail to paint the whole picture.

For instance, if a goalkeeper plays behind a good defense they will be expected to allow fewer goals. Conversely, if opposing teams keep hitting top-corner screamers, the keeper allows goals that they can do little to prevent.

Zack Steffen, Jordan Morris And Paul Arriola All Feature In Man City Vs. Swansea

An FA Cup last-16 tie between Premier League leaders Manchester City and Championship promotion hopefuls Swansea took on significant importance stateside on Wednesday as USMNT No. 1 Zack Steffen started in goal for City while Seattle Sounders loanee Jordan Morris got his first Swansea start and D.C. United loanee Paul Arriola made his debut off the bench.

Footballers Born In The Wrong Generation

With soccer tactics constantly changing, certain types of players are not always accommodated.

Roles like the libero, trequartista, striker partnerships and burly center backs have become, or are quickly becoming, outdated in modern football. Other roles like ball-playing goalkeepers, false nines and wingers that cut inside onto their stronger foot have become very trendy.

This often leaves current players wishing they had played in a previous decade and former players wishing their career had started a little later. Ah, what could have been.

Alisson Goes Full Loris Karius To Effectively End Liverpool’s Title Defense

After 73 minutes of tense, tactical equality between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday, Alisson suffered a goalkeeping meltdown unseen since Loris Karius’ infamous night in Kyiv to transform a 1-1 stalemate to a 3-1 City lead inside three minutes of total madness.
