Tottenham and Manchester United were joined by Chelsea recently as the Blues crashed out of the Champions League post their miserable 3-0 defeat at the hands of Barcelona. On the whole, it was a pretty one-sided affair, as Lionel Messi put Barcelona on the scoreboard in around 2 minutes from the start of the game Continue reading
Paris Saint-Germain have a mountain to climb when they take on Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash on Tuesday night at Parc des Princes.
Unai Emery’s side trail 3-1 from the first leg at the Bernabeu and will be without superstar forward Neymar Jr, who fractured his foot in their recent win over Marseille and is set for an extended period on the sidelines.
The Spanish gaffer rested several first team players for PSG’s weekend Ligue 1 clash against Troyes, with the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Marco Verratti given a break in order to keep them at 100% for the all important clash against Real. Paris eventually won 2-0 against ESTAC, with Angel di Maria and Christopher Nkunku netting for the visitors. The legendary George Weah’s son, Timothy, also made his debut for the Parisians as a second half substitute for Giovani lo Celso. Continue reading

The young defender finished with a 100% pass completion rate (96/96) and also had 5 clearances, 4 aerials won, 4 blocks, 2 shots and 1 interception. He also scored two of Man City’s four goals (the other two scored by their Argentine-Brazilian combination of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus) and had no fouls to his name!.
Stones also had a good game against Liverpool over the weekend (Man City won that game 5-0) and Pep Guardiola will certainly be pleased with the youngster’s progress. Tougher tests await him in the future, but he’s definitely showing signs that he can live up to his enormous potential Continue reading
