Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace : Benteke Denies Everton Premier League 2nd Position

Image
Everton FC 1 - 1 Crystal Palace 
Everton started the weekend hosting Crystal Palace at Goodison Park in a bid to get their third win in a row but their expectations were cut short when header by Christian Benteke in the 50th minute with a header which went straight to the far end of the Everton goal, an equalizer to Romelu Lukaku's great 20 yard free kick in the 35th minute which handed them a lead and hope for second place spot in the Premier League Table. Ronald Koeman has had a great time since the start of the season, a controversial free kick which resulted in his team going forward was a bit of some hope but even he knew from what he saw that it won't be an easy take away since the goal came in with 55 minutes still left in the game.

Manchester Utd 1-0 Zorya Luhansk : Zlatan's Head Gives United First Europa Win

Image
United's second Europa League fixture went positive for the Mohrinho side, though not as positive as expected by the Portuguese Coach but positive enough to get the three point available for this group A Europa League Fixture. Manchester United had lost their first game to Feyenoord in their first fixture and where at the bottom of the table,  Even Zorya had a point from their draw and it was a great embarrassment for a big side like United and also for Mohrinho. The Game with Zorya wasn't fun for United as the visitors where prepared mostly for a draw and say 15% percent for a win which was to be achieved through counter attacks,  which was not what they actually did. Zorya arranged their players in a strictly "parking the bus" lineup and it actually did upset Mohrinho since this was done just before the start of the match, Still Manchester United made out with a great squard including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford with the expectations of Leice…

Manchester United Vs Zorya : Manchester United Has No Excuse

Image
F. C Zorya visits Old Trafford today from Luhansk Oblast, Ukraine in the second match in the Europa League Group a fixture having drawn their first game with Fenerbahce,  they are not only optimistic about their chances but are also ready to give their all in other to get a good result. Manchester United Managed by Jose Mohrinho had lost their first game to Fenerbahce during their three loss in a row period, having just recovered though, I think not fully recovered due to lack understanding and having a lot to do in building a good team work or good defense might have one or to chances for the visitors.Zorya actually could capitalize on the underrating capabilities of a big club like Manchester United to get at least a point from this game, judging from interview with Jose Mohrinho , he might as well prepared well for the game since he seem to have been watching their games. “I don’t have more vision about Ukraine,
“We know that it will be a difficult group, but I think that is a good…

Real Madrid Nightmares : Three Straight Draws And Counting

Image
Real Madrid yesterday registered their third draw in a row in the Champions League Group F second fixture against Borussia Dortmund and before then Las Palmas and Villarreal but the Zidane side seem not to understand how to fix this persistent problem. The Madrid had been going through this draw issues since their game against Espanyol and had since a 1-1 draw with Villarreal and 2-2 with Las Palmas and now 2-2 against Dortmund, now to understand the problem we have to go back to their last win. Against Espanyol, Madrid had enjoyed a 2-1 win and a three point taken but something had taken place and no one might thought it very important to note or assume  a possible problem In future.During  the Espanyol game, Casemiro had limped off to injury but this might not have been a problem if they had a replacement, at then their hopes might have all been in one basket with out their consent since they unknowingly sent their replacement for Casemiro ( Marcos Llorente) on loan to Alaves and di…
