Julián Álvarez earns special praise from Guardiola after wondergoal sends City top

LONDON - Erling Haaland put yet more notches in an incredible first season with Manchester City but Julián Álvarez also received special praise from manager Pep Guardiola after Sunday's 2-1 win at Fulham which put City back on top of the table.

City were dealt a blow with Kevin de Bruyne ruled out with an injury, but even without their Belgian playmaker the combination of Haaland and Álvarez ensured victory.

Haaland lets his freak flag fly, sets record for most goals in a 38-game EPL season

After watching Manchester City's 4-1 beatdown of Arsenal on Wednesday, you might be tempted to say the only difference between the two sides is Kevin De Bruyne (two goals, one assist) and Erling Haaland (one goal, two assists), but when you consider the ludicrous amount of quality those two possess then the three-goal margin sounds about right.

Former NYCFC forward Taty Castellanos scores FOUR against Real Madrid

It’s been a day the small mountain town in northern Catalonia will never forget. Girona FC welcomed the mighty Real Madrid to its humble home, the Estadi Montilivi, for a late-season duel. The newly promoted side has attracted attention after several entertaining performances this season, but none will stay as long in the minds and souls of fans as Tuesday's 4-1 battering of the World Champions. 

Chicharito scores his first goal of 2023 and ends LA Galaxy's hellish run

Chicharito Hernández bagged his first goal of 2023 on Saturday and ended the miserable, winless hell the LA Galaxy were experiencing in MLS.

With four losses and three draws, the mood around the team was far from giddy and the absence of the Mexican striker was a big reason for the stinky start. Hernández had been struggling with muscular injuries and missed the first five matches of the campaign. Although he returned to play some minutes against the Houston Dynamo and provided an assist against LAFC, both games ended in defeat. 

Lionel Messi is still cooking in Ligue 1 and provides ridiculous assist for Kylian Mbappé

The massive spotlight on Paris Saint-Germain from earlier this season has flickered and remains on a dim setting. PSG are out of the Champions League, eliminated from the French Cup, lost Neymar for the rest of the season and have a relatively comfortable lead in Ligue 1.

There aren’t any big matches left on the schedule for the Paris club with just a handful of league matches against midtable or lower Ligue 1 sides. A sobering end to a season with so many expectations.

On Friday PSG defeated bottom of the table Angers 2-1 courtesy of a Kylian Mbappé brace. 

Erling Haaland proves he’s human after smashing a penalty over the bar into the stands

Erling Haaland AKA the Norwegian goal-machine stunned fans during Manchester City’s 1-1 draw vs. Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. Haaland did what no one thought was possible and he missed a penalty kick.

City entered the second leg of the UCL quarterfinal with a comfortable 3-0 aggregate lead. Haaland had the opportunity to extend the lead to four goals in the 37th minute at the penalty spot after a handball was called on Dayot Upamecano.

Is this the cheekiest penalty of all time?

Looking at the Ligue 1 standings, it's safe to say that bottom-of-the-table Angers are destined for relegation.

On Sunday, the club travelled to mid-table Clermont Foot in one of the most unremarkable matches across France this weekend, meaning it was up to the supporters to largely entertain themselves at Clermont's modest Stade Gabriel Montpied.

The traveling Angers fans — hoping to witness just a fourth victory in 31 attempts — had a little corner to themselves and could be seen wearing black for the first 20 minutes.

An Erling Haaland bicycle kick goal vs. Southampton during Manchester City’s 4-1 victory on Saturday silenced his haters who claim he doesn’t score any quality goals.

Every player has their fair share of haters, it’s natural. However, Haaland’s haters are a particularly interesting group of people. They despise Haaland, a striker whose sole purpose is to score goals, for scoring goals.

Son’s 100th EPL goal was a must-watch beauty as Spurs defeat Brighton 2-1

LONDON — Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane struck a late winner in a fiery 2-1 home victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday to boost his side's hopes of a top-four finish.

Son Heung-min's 100th Premier League goal, a superb curler in the 10th minute, had given Spurs the lead against the run of play.

Ricardo Pepi reaches double figures in the Eredivisie with another impressive goal

With just seven matches remaining in the Eredivisie season, Groningen slipped closer to relegation following a 3-1 away defeat to Fortuna Sittard on Sunday. They're seven points from safety and looking destined for the Eerste Divisie.

The lone bright spot for Groningen has been 20-year-old American striker Ricardo Pepi, who's on a year-long loan from FC Augsburg. Pepi scored Groningen's lone goal of the match and now has 10 this season to go with three assists. 

The club has only managed 26 goals in 27 games, but Pepi has now been involved in 50% of them.
