It’s back!! The 2017/18 Premier League season and I can’t wait for the new football season so let’s go!!!

Arsenal 4-3 Leicester City

Olivier Giroud celebrates Arsenal winner

Arsenal end their curse of losing on the first game of the season with thrilling 4-3 win over Leicester City.

Arsenal started really strong as Lacazette gets his first goal for Arsenal with a terrific header. Then Leicester made it 1-1 when Okazaki heads in the net past Cech, then Vardy made it 2-1 and it was good attacking football from Leicester. New signing Kolasinac past to Welbeck to make it 2-2 before half time.

Second half kicked off and Leicester made it 3-2 when again Jamie Vardy puts it past Cech again. Wenger reacted when he subbed Giroud and Ramsey and they made an instant impact. Xhaka crossed the ball to Ramsey who smashed it past Schmeichel in the 83rd minute and then 2 minutes later Xhaka crossed the ball in and Giroud rised up and hits the back of the net and 3 points go to Arsenal.

Watford 3-3 Liverpool

Miguel Britos heads Watford's equaliser over the line

Watford scored a late equaliser in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Liverpool.

Watford took the lead with an header from Okaka past Mignolet and then Liverpool hit back with Sadio Mane with a clinical finish. Watford made it 2-1 with a goal from Doucoure before half time.

Second half kicked off and Liverpool got two goals from Firmino and then new signing Salah made it 3-2 and it wonderful attacking football from Liverpool. Then right at the end when Britos snatched 2 points from Liverpool.

With Coutinho out of the sqaud for the game which is a shock as he wants to leave so what will happen to Coutinho?

Chelsea 2-3 Burnley

Image result for chelsea 2-3 burnley

Chelsea started their defence of the title with an humiliating 3-2 defeat to Burnley.

The game started and Burnley were more lively and Chelsea were down to 10 men with a bad challenge from Cahill. Burnley made it 1-0 from Vokes with 24 minutes gone, then it was made 2-0 when Ward puts the ball past the keeper. Then 3-0 was made when Vokes again volleyed it in and it was a carnival for Burnley and humilting from Chelsea.

Chelsea pulled on pack in the second half with new signing Morata with a nice finish. But it was let down when Chelsea went down to 9 men when Fabregas got a second yellow and a red card. David Luiz made it 3-2 and they were close to gain a point but Burnley defended well and they deserved the 3 points.

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield Town

Mounie scores Huddersfield's second goal

Huddlesfield Town made a dream start to their first season in the Premier League with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

They took the lead when Palace defender Joel Ward puts in in his own net. Then Steve Mounie made it 2-0 with a powerful header, and the confidence in a club playing in the top teir of english football since 1972 is through the roof.

Mounie who is the club’s record signing scored his a second goal to make it 3-0 and it was a canaval for the 3000 huddlesfield fan. This is Frank De Boer first game under Palace and it didn’t get off to a good start for him but I feel they will do well this season.

Everton 1-0 Stoke City

Image result for everton rooney

It was a special moment for a certain Wayne Rooney who gets the only goal for Everton in a 1-0 win over Stoke City.

Everton who have invested in loads of players over the summer with the amount of money coming to the club. They dominated the first half and Stoke keeper Jack Butland was keeping stoke in the game until a header from Wayne Rooney made it 1-0 before half time.

The 31-year-old, who left the club for Manchester United in 2004, headed in his 199th Premier League goal as the Toffees beat Stoke 1-0 at Goodison Park. He is close to Shearer’s record but even if he breaks it he won’t be anywhere near Shearer’s class.

Southampton 0-0 Swansea City

Gabbiadini

There was always one boring game on the opening day and this was one of them which is a 0-0 draw between Southampton and Swansea.

Both teams had chances to make it 1-0 and to be honest strikers on both sides had an off day and the one big chance when Southampton striker Gabbiadini hit the cross bar from a corner from Tadic.

Southampton had chance after chance after chance to make it 1-0 and it should of been 3-0 or 4-0 to the Saints and Swansea were getting destroyed and they got a sneaky point way from home.

West Brom Albion 1-0 AFC Bournemouth

West Brom

A certain new signing for West Brom described his goal a special moment as West Brom won 1-0 against Bournemouth.

Bournemouth had the majority of possession but failed to capitalise, and there was a sense of inevitability as a Baggies free-kick was safely nodded in by the Egyptian defender, for his first goal for the club.

Another Tony Pulis’ summer signing performed well, which is debutant Jay Rodriguez twice coming close and looking sharp. It was a tidy opening day performance for the Baggies.

Brighton & Hove Albion 0-2 Manchester City

Aguero

Brighton fought against the mighty Man City but Man Ciy proved too strong for Brighton with a comfortable 2-0 win.

In the first half Brighton did really well as they were compact, they defended well and frustrated Pep Guardiola’s team and everyone thought they will struggle against Brighton who are playing in the Premier League for the first time in history.

Second half started and Man City was putting pressure on Brighton all half and it paid of with their man Sergio Aguero who was top scorer for City last season, opens his account for the season. then it was made 2-0 five minutes later with an own goal by Lewis Dunk.

Wasn’t convincing from Man City as they need to step up to show that they are title contenders for this season.

Newcastle United 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham

Tottenham made a winning start to the 2017-18 Premier League season as 10-man Newcastle endured a difficult return to the top flight.

First half was all Spurs the half as Kane, Alli, Eriksen etc having shots at goal and Newcastle were terrible as they couldn’t get out of their half. All the talk about what’s happening at Newcastle as their manager Benitez as he might resign because of Mick Ashley and they are not going after players.

Second half kicked off and it went from bad to worse as Jonjo Shelvey got a straight red card for stamping on Dele Alli due to frustration. It was stupid from Shelvey and he deserves a ban for that. Speaking of Dele Alli, he gived Spurs the deserved lead and I feel Shelvey will get the blame. It was made 2-0 when Ben Davies scored from an Eriksen assist.

Spurs started off strong and hope they will be title conteders again whereas Newcastle they need to sort themselves out before Rafa Benitez walks away.

Manchester United 4-0 West Ham United

Romelu Lukaku scores Manchester United's opening goal

United started with a dominate 4-0 win over West Ham United.

Lukaku gived United the lead for his first goal at Old Trafford for Manchester United from a pass from Rashford. Lukaku seems to be a good signing for United as with his experience in the Premier League

Then second half kicked off and it was made 2-0 when Romelu Lukaku again when he heads the ball from a free kick from Mkhitaryan. It was 3-0 when substitute Martial opens his account for the season with a nice finish then Pogba scored from 20 yards out to make it 4-0.

One player stood out and it was Matic who controlled the game, won the ball back and he can be key to United winning trophies this season. It was a dominate game from Mourinho and I feel they are title contenders this season.

Summer Transfers #1

It’s back one again! Summer Transfer Window is here and I’ve got some signings that interested me. Let’s go!!!

 

Romelu Lukaku – Everton to Manchester United for £75m

Image result for lukaku to man utd

Manchester United have signed striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton for an initial £75m on a five-year contract. Mourinho said: “Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United. He is a big personality and a big player,” and he also said “He will be a great addition to the group. I am really looking forward to working with him again.”

Opinion: This is the player we have all be talking about because which club will this striker go to and Manchester United have got him. He’s got everything like he can shoot and pass with both feet, he’s strong, good in the air and he knows the Premier League instead of Morata which United will have to spend more on.

Alexandre Lacazette – Lyon to Arsenal for £46.5m

Image result for lacazette arsenal

Arsenal have completed the signing of France striker Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon for a club record £46.5m fee on a five-year deal. The fee – up to £52.6m with add-ons – will surpass the £42.4m Arsenal paid Real Madrid for Mesut Ozil in 2013.

Opinion: I think this is a really good signing for Arsenal because they have been looking for a top quality striker for a long time. This will leave strikers like Giroud, Welbeck and Lucas Perez to fight for their place. Also what will be the future of Alexis Sanchez if he goes.

Michael Keane – Burnley to Everton for £30m

Everton have signed Michael Keane from Burnley for a fee that could rise to a club record-equalling £30m.

Opinion: This is an interesting signing because with Everton investing in loads of money from the new owner. This has sparkle upon all football fans and Michael Keane is a very good defender as he had a good few seasons at Burnley and he’s an international player in which he is representing England.

Mohammad Salah – Roma to Liverpool for £34m

Image result for mohamed salah liverpool

Liverpool have completed the £34m pounds signing of Roma’s former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian whose 25, has signed a five-year deal and has been a prime target for manager Jurgen Klopp.

Opinion: This is interesting because they have somebody in the position he plays which is Mane but maybe he can play on the right, Mane on the left and Firmino up front with Coutinho just behind which will look nice.

EFL Cup Final Review| Manchester Utd 3-2 Southampton

What a final we have witness at Wembley as Manchester United won 3-2 against Southampton.

Manchester United have won the League Cup for a fifth time

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a dramatic 87th-minute winner as Manchester United edged Southampton to win the EFL Cup in a pulsating Wembley final.

I want to say commiserations Southampton because they did their fans proud who travelled a long way to Wembley to see their team play some good football. The first goal came when United won a free kick in the 18th minute, and who to step up to take it is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He stepped up and he buried it in the back of the net and Forster had no chance to stop that. United made it 2-0 with a lovely calm finish by Lingard and they was in cruise control. Southampton got a goal back by Gabbiadini to give them hope.

Second half started and Southampton looked alive that they can get a second goal and it paid of with a lovely turn and shot by Gabbiadini and it’s 2-2 and it’s game on at Wembley. Both sides were at each other to see who can get the winner and it came when Ander Herrera crossed in a beautiful ball into the man with no introduction. Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Who scored a beautiful header and I don’t know why there was no defender for Southampton who’s marking him and again Forster didn’t have a chance.

This guy is a machine 35 years old and hes score 26 goals in all competitions and that is incredible from him and he’s become a legend at Man United already with the goals he scored for club and country and he’s a leader on that pitch and he has the strength required for English football.

Overall I think the right team won on the day and we have to give credit to Southampton who were like the underdogs when they knocked out Liverpool and Arsenal to get to the final so well done to Manchester United.

The Football Recap #1

Image result for Football

Hi guys Milan here and welcome to The Football Recap where we will talk about the Premier League and The Championship unfortunately.

Manchester United 1-1 Arsenal

Olivier Giroud scores against Man Utd

Olivier Giroud’s 89th-minute equaliser earned Arsenal a point and denied Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United a victory they deserved at Old Trafford.

Juan Mata looked to have put United on course for three points with a sweeping left-foot finish from Ander Herrera’s cut-back after 68 minutes. It was a good finish from Juan Mata who is looking a top player under Mourinho. 

United had controlled a game that was ordinary for long periods, with Arsenal keeper Petr Cech making important saves and Mourinho left furious that they were denied a first-half penalty by referee Andre Marriner when Nacho Monreal hauled down Antonio Valencia. It was a penalty in my eyes but the Referee made a massive mistake in that game.

The Arsenal got very lucky when Oxlade-Chamberlain crossed in the perfect ball and Giroud who was unmarked in the box and made it 1-1 with a brilliant header. Mourinho was complaining saying Manchester United are the “Unluckiest Team in the league”. May I say United beat Swansea 3-1, Lost to Fernebache in the Europa League, then got destroyed by Chelsea 4-0 and a 0-0 draw against Burnley. They are not unlucky they are just poor. Enough said.

Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 West Ham United

Harry Kane

Another team who bottled it this weekend is West Ham who were 2-1 up and then lost 3-2 to their rivals Spurs.

West Ham took the lead when Antonio scored a header then Spurs youngster Harry Winks (Who was Man Of The Match) equalised to make it 1-1. West Ham then made it 2-1 when Lanzini converted from the penalty spot, and they had a chance to make it 3-1 when Zaza was on a counter attack along with Payet but he didn’t pass it to quickly and then they lost possession of the ball.

Harry Kane who returned from injury continues his form after the North London Derby against Arsenal. He made it 2-2 with a nice tidy finish and then it was 3-2 when Spurs had a penalty and Harry Kane went on to win the game.

West Ham are still in trouble as they are 1 point above relegation. Without Europe they need to focus on finishing in the top 10 otherwise it will be the end for Slaven Bilic. Will West Ham get relegated this season? Let me know on Twitter or the comments below.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Manchester City

Image result for crystal palace 1-2 man city

The return of Yaya Toure who he went on to score a brace to continue the misery for Alan Pardew.

He made it 1-0 with a smashing finish into the top corner when Nolito supplied the pass towards Yaya Toure. He’s one of the contenders for African footballer of the year 2016. Palace made it 1-1 with a good counter attack when Zaha played in a pass towards Connor Wickham with a nice finish passed Bravo.

But Toure, who has not figured at all for City for almost three months, had the final word when he turned home Kevin de Bruyne’s corner from close range. The win moves City second in the table, level on points with leaders Liverpool and with an identical goal difference.

Palace are in big trouble as they are the worse team of 2016 as they are even worse then two teams who got relegated from Football League 2. I think Pardew will get sacked soon if his run continues, but all I can say is thank you for Mile Jedinak who have been our best midfielder.

Brighton 1-1 Aston Villa

Glenn Murray

Glenn Murray scored his 10th goal this season as Brighton resisted a second-half Aston Villa onslaught to extend their unbeaten league run to 11 games. Also Villa are 6 games unbeaten as well.

We took the lead when Nathan Baker met an Albert Adomah free-kick with a fine flicked header to put Villa in front after 20 minutes. Well done Baker and I don’t know if Elphick will be in the team because Baker and Chester have be so solid since Steve Bruce has come in.

Murray responded by fizzing a low shot past goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini just before the break. Jonathan Kodjia hit the bar and David Stockdale made two crucial saves as Villa pressed for a second-half winner.

The game ends in a draw and we will extend our run and beat Cardiff City this weekend and climb the table. Steve Bruce has really organised with Chester being a good captain, Jedinak being our leader in the midfield and Kodija is on fire and your defence is terrified.  UTV!!!

Pogba returns to Man Utd!!!!


Hi guys Milan here and the world has gone crazy as Paul Pogba joins Manchester United from Juventus for world record fee of £89m. This is massive money from Manchester United but this is why they are one of the biggest clubs in the world.

They have no option but to challenge for the title as they have won the Charity Shield which is always good to start the new season. He returns to Old Trafford and O think this time he will get more game time and he will show what United have been missing over the years.

He’s got the strength for the Premier League, a lethal shot, good passing and and brilliant athlete when heading the ball and tackling for the ball and he’s only 23.

Is he worth £89m or not let me know by twitter @NoTeamworkNoWin or the comments below
