Manchester City Wins Premier League; What Happen To The Other Big Teams?

Liverpool finished third with 69 points, just five points behind Manchester United. With a season full of injuries, it seemed like very difficult for the Reds to finish top 4 this season. But Jurgen Klopp is considered one of the best football managers in the world, and this is why he is one of the best.

Chelsea finished fourth in the league, two points behind Liverpool. Even though they lost their final match against Aston Villa, they have been gifted the fourth position by Leicester City who bottled their Champions League hope this year again. Leicester City’s League finish was totally similar to their last year. They bottled it, in the same manner, this year.

West Ham United was one of the ultimate underdogs of this year who finished sixth. The other two big teams were Tottenham Hotspurs and Arsenal, who finished 7th and 8th respectively. Arsenal was the only team besides Liverpool Who won all their last five league matches. It looks like Arsenal is getting their Glory days back slowly.

Another underdog of the season has to be Leeds United who finished ninth and played extremely well in this campaign. Everton and Aston Villa started the campaign very well, but had to remain happy with 10th and 11th positions only.

Kieran Tripper Completes £21.7million Move To Atletico Madrid

Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid have agreed a £21.7million deal for Kieran Trippier.

28 year old, England right back, Kieran Trippier has moved to the Spanish capital to join Atletico Madrid. He has signed a 3 year contract, keeping him at the club until 2021.

Atletico Madrid signing the English defender makes him their first English signing in 95 years. He joined the squad immediately after the announcement. The players gave him a guard of honour at training. He is likely to make his debut on 20th of July against Numancia in the Club friendlies.

Trippier had starred for the national team in World Cup 2018, Russia. He left the World Cup with an injury after England’s semifinal exit from the tournament. However, he struggled in regaining his scintillating form back for the club.

The right back spent 4 years at Tottenham making over 100 appearances for them. He joined the North London side from Burnley in 2015. Trippier played his last game for Spurs in their Champions League loss to Liverpool in his new home stadium Wanda Metropolitano.

Trippier had not travelled with the squad for the Asian Premier League. Pochettino has also left their left back, Danny Rose at home indicating his exit from the club soon. With 21 year old Argentine Juan Foyth, showing good trust to play for Argentina in the Copa America, Pochettino may depend on him for the next season at the right back position.

Tottenham have also shown interests in Fulham’s teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon, and a deal may take action, since Fulham’s relegation to the Championship.

Atletico have reinforced their falling side after making some important signings. They’ve lost very important players from the side this summer, namely; Antoine Griezmann, Rodri, Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin and Juanfran. In a quest to revamp their squad they’ve made quite afew signings .

They have signed 19 year old Portuguese sensation Joao Felix for a €126 million deal from SL Benfica. 24 year old defensive midfielder, Marcos Llorente was transferred in a deal worth €30 million from Real Madrid C.F.

F.C Porto centre back Felipe and midfielder Hector Herrera have joined the Spanish side in a €20 million and a free deal, respectively. They also signed Left back Renan Lodi from Brazilian club Athletico PR for €20 million. And lastly, Kieran Trippier joining from Spurs.

Messi scores twice to lead Barcelona over Tottenham 4-2

London, Oct 4: Lionel Messi had a brace in Barcelona’s 4-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on match-day 2 of the 2018-2019 Champions League.

The 90,000 people who packed into London’s Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night were treated to a master class by the Argentine international, though Spurs supporters could be forgiven for wishing that Messi had saved his heroics for another opponent.

Barça, without a win in their last three La Liga matches, jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the 2nd minute after Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris came off his line in a failed attempt to intercept a Messi pass to Jordi Alba, who slipped the ball to Philippe Coutinho for the easy goal, reports Efe news.

Spurs seemed unable to react and found themselves trailing by two before the half-hour mark and once again, the goal began with Messi.

The Barça captain dropped a pass into the box that Luis Suarez controlled with his chest and left at the feet of Coutinho. The Brazilian kept the ball in play for an onrushing Ivan Rakitic, who went airborne to deliver a thunderous kick for 20 yards that beat Lloris.

Harry Kane clawed back a goal for Spurs seven minutes into the second half, evading defender Nelson Semedo to tuck the ball inside the far post, far out of the reach of Barcelona keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Messi, who hit the post twice before Kane scored, restored the two-goal margin in the 56th minute with an assist from Alba.

But Tottenham fought back and Erik Lamela’s goal in the 66th minute reduced the deficit to 3-2.

Lucas Moura had two chances to equalize for the hosts and Barcelona girded for a late surge, but Messi would have the last word, getting his second of the night in stoppage time.

Barcelona lead Group B by virtue of a better goal difference than Inter Milan, who are tied on points with the Catalan club after beating PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday.

Spurs and PSV are both without a point.

UEFA Champions League: Red-Hot Barcelona Blow Away Tottenham Hotspur At Wembley .

Lionel Messi mesmerised Wembley once again as Barcelona dented Tottenham Hotspur’s UEFA Champions League hopes by thrashing them 4-2 on Wednesday.

Playing at the Wembley for the first time since inspiring Barcelona to the Champions League title against Manchester United in 2011, Messi scored twice, hit the post twice and had big roles in others goals, helping the La Liga champions inflict back-to-back defeat on Tottenham in Group B.

Barcelona made a perfect start to the night. Philippe Coutinho set the tone for his side after scoring inside two minutes. The Brazil international, however, should thank Hugo Lloris for the howler that led to the goal.

Messi should have put the game to the bed but hit the same post twice in three minutes. Harry Kane’s goal seven minutes after the restart revived the home side’s slim hopes. However, Messi quickly restored the two-goal lead (56). There was, however, no end to the drama as Erik Lamela (66) set up a thrilling finish. But in the end, Messi deservedly scored the goal to bring an end to a classic game.

Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks proved no match for Barcelona’s midfielders. Messi started the move for the first goal when he  bent a pass behind Kieran Trippier for Jordi Alba. Lloris then scampered from his line for the ball despite having no chance and paid a big process.

Alba slid the ball to Coutinho who opened the scoring by firing home into an unguarded net.

Barcelona then doubled their lead 5 minutes from the half-time. Messi once again started the game. The Argentine, who opened his Champions League campaign with a hat-trick, curled a ball over the top that Coutinho somehow managed to keep in play. The former Liverpool man then flicked the ball which found Rakitic before the Croatia star slotted home a sensational volley.

After the break, Messi took command of the midfield. The five-time Ballon D’Or winner terrorised the home side with his dribbling and control. He soon created two chances for himself but ended up hitting the left post on both the occasions. But just when it looked Spurs are well out of the game, Kane scored one. However, 4 minutes later Messi restored Barcelona’s two-goal lead.

Unfazed by Barcelona’s attack, Spurs continued to press and soon got the second goal when Lamela found the back of the net. The home side continued to trouble Barcelona but were denied by some last-ditch Barca defending.  And just when stadium was sensing a dramatic equaliser, Messi stamped his authority by scoring the fourth and final goal of the game.

I am So Calm Because I Know Football – Mauricio Pochettino not Panicked after Defeat

Despite leading almost until the end of the match against Inter Milan to losing it 2-1, Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino says he is calm and not feeling any pressure.

Pochettinno’s men suffered a heartbreaking defeat against Inter Milan.

Later, Mauro Icardi pulled one back, but it was Matias Vecino, the hero for Inter Milan who scored the match-winning goal in the stoppage time and stunned the English side. However, Pochettino is not panicked after the defeat and said he is ready to take on the upcoming challenges.

“I am so relaxed; I am so calm because I know football, In the same time when you win you get a lot of praise that sometimes you don’t deserve. When you lose you must keep the balance and accept the criticism and that people are going to think differently and of course try to find the reason why we lose. That is how I understand football, and I accept that situation. That is why the balance is so important.”

 

The manager further added,

“When you win, you need to keep the balance and when you lose you need to accept the criticism and keep the balance too. That for me is the most important. The group is ok. The group is, of course, a little bit anxious about winning games because it’s normal when you don’t win.  Sometimes it’s good to feel the pain, the defeat, not only the one, two but three. It’s so important to be clever and be strong. Football is like life; it’s impossible to keep 70 years of happiness.”

Pochettino will be hoping his side has overcome the heartbreak defeat like him and put up a good show in their upcoming Premier League game against Brighton on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris Banned and Fined for Drink-Driving

Hugo Lloris, who was found guilty of drink and driving a couple of weeks ago has been fined £50,000 and banned for 20 months from driving.

Hugo Lloris has suffered a massive punishment for drink-driving.

On August 24, Lloris was stopped by police and found guilty. He attended a hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday. And the court said the France captain provided a sample containing 80 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. It is more than twice the legal limit in England and Wales.

The police claimed the player went through a red light before being stopped, as he drove his Porsche Panamera. Then the police officer suspected of being drunk and he was right in the end.

The police officer named Henry Fitch also revealed that Lloris was driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone and veering towards parked cars before correcting himself. The player also vomited in the car.

However, David Sonn defended the goalkeeper and said he had been dining in a restaurant where he received drinks from fellow diners.

“On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet [after France’s World Cup triumph]. Just 40 days later, he was arrested. He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight. The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr Lloris.”

Meanwhile, Lloris released a statement apologising to everyone for his misdeeds.

“I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters. Drink driving is completely unacceptable. I take full responsibility for my actions, and it is not the example I wish to set.”

Earlier this week, Lloris also told RMC he wants to learn from his mistake and become a better person.

“Like everyone, I have my private life. I made a mistake. You have to accept responsibility for it. I have to stay focused on the most important things to me, the pitch, my friends, my family. I always want to go out onto the field to have fun and keep improving myself.”
