¿Penal o se deja caer? Raúl Jiménez protagoniza polémica en nueva derrota de Wolverhampton

Raúl Jiménez fue titular en la visita de Wolverhampton ante Newcastle y en su mente había una misión clara: acabar con su sequía de un año sin convertir goles en la Premier League. Lamentablemente para el Lobo, la misión estuvo lejos de ser un éxito, ya que su equipo perdió y el delantero mexicano añadió un partido más sin poder encontrar las redes rivales.

We created an EPL table of results since the World Cup — here were the biggest surprises

Having the World Cup in the middle of the English Premier League season has split the campaign into two chapters. Heading into Matchday 26, The18 created an EPL table that only consists of results since the World Cup break.

The updated table shows how in form some teams are and accurately depicts how poor other teams have performed.

Here’s the table and some of the biggest surprises.

Loris Karius makes 8 saves in EFL Cup final but it's still not enough

Loris Karius' one-day Redemption Tour is at an end. Playing his first competitive match in nearly two years and his first representing an English club since that infamous night in Kyiv, Karius could not prevent Newcastle's defeat in the EFL Cup final on Sunday as Manchester United scored two goals in a six-minute first-half span to claim the season's first major piece of silverware.

The year's best story? Karius out for redemption in EFL Cup final on his Newcastle debut

Sunday's EFL Cup final is a tale of two clubs desperate to herald the beginning of a new era with silverware. For Manchester United, ending a six-year wait for a major trophy would affirm Erik ten Hag's revolution. For Newcastle United, a 68-year drought would be remedied by the wealth of the Saudi PIF and the tinkerings of Eddie Howe. 

Someone forgot to tell Nick Pope that goalkeepers can’t use their hands wherever they want

NEWCASTLE — Liverpool ended Newcastle United's long unbeaten run in the Premier League through early goals by Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo that gave them a 2-0 victory at St. James' Park on Saturday.

Jürgen Klopp's side caught Newcastle cold with a scintillating start, and the stunned hosts were reduced to 10 men in the 22nd minute when goalkeeper Nick Pope was red-carded.

Ghana international Christian Atsu among those missing in Turkey after earthquake

The combined death toll in Turkey and Syria has risen to at least 2,600 from two earthquakes that struck the countries within the space of 12 hours. That number is expected to increase rapidly with many people still missing and trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings.

One of those still unaccounted for is former Newcastle winger and Ghana international Christian Atsu after the collapse of an apartment building in Hatay, Turkey.

Santi Muñoz is moving away from Newcastle; sadly, he's not going to Real Madrid

People were excited when Mexico-American striker Santiago Muñoz signed a contract with Newcastle. Sure, it was a great move for the youngster to show off his talents, but much of the buzz was more related to the similarities between his story and the story of Santiago Muñez, the main character in the Goal!-movie franchise. 

People imagined he would succeed playing at St. James Park and one day move to Real Madrid to achieve the ultimate glory.

Is Santi Muñoz still at Newcastle?

However, 18 months later, Muñoz's dream has taken a heavy hit.

Bizarre scenes: Mitrović PK disallowed after striker manages the impossible

The two surprise packages of the Premier League season met at St James' Park on Sunday with Newcastle United and Fulham both challenging for the European places.

Newcastle was looking to improve on scoreless draws against Leeds United and Arsenal, but they ran into Tim Ream and couldn't craft a clear opening in the first half. Then, against the run of play, Fulham earned a penalty with just over 20 minutes remaining in the match.

Newcastle flop Joselu is suddenly one of the world's best strikers and we love it

Ask any Newcastle United supporter to identify a player synonymous with the penny-pinching reign of Mike Ashley and there's a good chance you'll hear "Joselu" as the reply.

Fresh off winning the Championship and promotion, secure in the services of beloved manager Rafael Benítez and dreaming of a splashy return to the 2017-18 top flight, Toon supporters were left frustrated by a summer transfer window in which Joselu's $6 million purchase represented the biggest upgrade to the attack.
