Forget Man City, Bobby Firmino Should Be Investigated For These Dark Arts

Liverpool marched on to yet another win, scoring late and great to eventually see off last-place Norwich City 1-0 in a match that was much harder than the Reds might have expected on Saturday at Carrow Road.

Liverpool has now taken 76 points from a possible 78, which is just stupid if you think about it. If this happened in any other league in Europe (or the world), detractors would use it as proof to say the rest of the league is no good. But in England, Liverpool is hailed as one of the greatest teams of all time, and it’s hard to argue against that. 

UEFA Shows It’s Got A Spine, Bans Man City From Champions League For 2 Seasons

For once, UEFA has shown it’s got a bit of a spine. After years of failing to truly punish violators of Financial Fair Play, UEFA handed down its biggest penalty yet, banning Manchester City from the Champions League for two seasons on Friday. The English club was also fined $32.5 million. The Man City UCL ban is subject to appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Forsaken And Forgotten By Crystal Palace, Alexander Sørloth Is Now Turkey’s Joint-Top Scorer

Alexander Sørloth looked a man bereft of confidence. Just 12 months after arriving in South London in a $11.75 million deal from Denmark's FC Midtjylland, the Norwegian striker was yet to score a Premier League goal for Crystal Palace in 16 appearances. In all but four of those outings, he had come off the bench. 

Djibril Sidibé Leaves Everton Down A Man After Forgetting To Put On A Second Sock

Everton’s Djibril Sidibé probably wasn’t expecting to enter Saturday’s match in the first half. He probably wasn’t expecting to become the joke of the football world either.

Sidibé left Everton playing Crystal Palace with 10 men for a couple minutes after he failed to realize he only had one sock on as he prepared to enter the match for the injured Theo Walcott. Sidibé only realized his mistake when he bent over to pull up his sock that wasn’t there. He immediately went back to the locker room to put on a second sock.

Bald Mourinho Might Take Some Time To Get Used To

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has enjoyed some success since jumping in with the team in late November. 

The veteran manager has led his squad to seven Premier League victories and four draws out of his first 15 matches.

Early signs showed Mourinho may not have had a lot of answers for the top half of the EPL as he dropped his first three matches against teams in the top 10. However, Mourinho and the Spurs are coming off a dynamic 2-0 win over reigning champion Manchester City. 

What To Watch During Premier League Winter Break

With the introduction of the Premier League winter break, football addicts may worry about not getting their fix of football. 

Matchday 26 of the EPL will be spread out over the course of two weeks, which means a severe lack of football. Thankfully there are two imperative matches being played this weekend in the Bundesliga and Serie A that will fill the empty space left by the winter break.

José Mourinho And Tottenham Have Broken Manchester City

The numbers are ridiculous. Following Tottenham’s remarkable 2-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday, here’s the statistical summary of the Premier League encounters between Spurs and City this campaign. 

The Slow, Depressing Death Of West Ham United

It took until the 67th minute, but it happened. Without fail, it always happens. With Liverpool leading West Ham 2-0 and supporters beginning their ascent up the stairs and out the door at London Stadium on Wednesday evening, the commentators on NBCSN began lamenting about how it all just doesn’t feel right. 

The Best And Worst Sports Network Intro Songs

Jurgen Klopp Couldn’t Care Less About The FA Cup

Shrewsbury Town has created one of the biggest talking points in Liverpool’s seemingly golden season. The Reds were handed a surprise 2-2 draw in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday. Now they will have to partake in a replay, but it seems Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp isn’t too interested in the FA Cup.
