Aymeric Laporte Brought City To The Top Of The League And Nearly Killed Himself In The Process

Just like David Silva’s hair transplant, Manchester City is growing and on top and oh god this metaphor. But City returned to the summit of the Premier League with the sort of balls to the wall 2-0 win that Liverpool is suddenly incapable of.

Liverpool fans — taking a break from crucifying Naby Keita for the 970 minutes of PL football he’s played — immediately turned their attention to crucifying Everton fans for potentially wanting to lose to City today to thwart their rival’s title aspirations.  

Manuel Pellegrini Calls Out Jurgen Klopp After Missed Offside Calls

It’s fair to say that Liverpool did not enjoy Monday night's match against West Ham.

Going 1-0 up after 22 minutes through Sadio Mané, Liverpool struggled to clinch an important victory in the Premier League title race. Michail Antonio scored just six minutes later, and Liverpool could not respond.

West Ham on the other hand, should be happy the performance against Liverpool was a lot better than in recent matches and against the league leaders no less. West Ham’s manager, Manuel Pellegrini, was less than impressed with Liverpool’s goal and with Jurgen Klopp.

Which Professional Sports Leagues Draw The Biggest Crowds? Here’s The Breakdown

Fresh off the MLS Cup drawing a larger crowd than the Super Bowl at the same stadium, it’s the perfect time to dive into the largest sports attendance records around the planet. So, what is the most attended sport in the world? 

Manchester United Has To Be Sharper To Upset PSG

Yesterday, Manchester United traveled to Leicester in the hopes of bouncing back from a shock 2-2 draw against Burnley at Old Trafford. The good news for United is they left King Power Stadium with three points. The bad news: United is trying to shake off a lack of sharpness.

Marcus Rashford Reaches 100 PL Games In Style

Marcus Rashford has had anything but a quiet start to his Premier League career. The 21-year-old notched his 100th career appearance in the EPL on Sunday and did not miss a beat. 

The Manchester United striker wasted no time when scoring in the ninth minute, which proved too much for Leicester City to answer. 

This Magical Goal-Line Clearance Handed PSG Its First League Defeat Of The Season

With the Super Bowl chalking up its lowest-scoring game in history, it’s only fitting that Sunday’s European football action was dominated by some equally adept defensive displays (apart from Manchester City’s dominant, 19-shot performance vs. Arsenal). 

Humanity Is Getting Dumber, But Man City Remains Too Damn Clever

I recently read that humanity is getting dumber. Whether that’s because of unhealthy diets, garbage media, substandard schooling or the general inclination to never read anything, our habitation of a “stupidity-inducing environment” is causing the IQ of modern generations to plummet. But there’s hope, because here you are reading and here I am trying to not be garbage media man.

Everton’s Best Player Today Was A Black Cat

Everton hosted Wolverhampton in what could be described as a mid-table six-pointer if anyone cared about positioning in mid table (no one does). Wolves cruised to a 3-1 win as Raúl Jiménez scored his ninth goal of the season. Meanwhile the best player for the Toffees was an evasive Everton cat. 

Rúben Neves converted a seventh-minute penalty, Jiménez headed home just before halftime and Leander Dendoncker finished the match with a follow-up volley in the 66th minute as Wolves moved comfortably into seventh place, five points ahead of Everton. 

With One Brilliant Stroke Of His Right Foot, Higuain Showed He’s Got What It Takes At Chelsea

Gonzalo Higuain received his first Chelsea start on Wednesday, a bystander as the Blues were stomped by mid-table Bournemouth. Given another chance against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, the Argentine showed he may actually be the man Maurizio Sarri needs to turn Chelsea’s season around.

What On Earth Is Going On At Chelsea?

If you’ve paid any attention to Chelsea’s current Premier League season in comparison to last season, or the season before that, things seem odd. At this point in time last season, Chelsea was fourth in the Premier League table. Now, after Chelsea’s most recent loss to Bournemouth, the Blues have dropped to fifth.
