Premier League team of the weekend: Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Everton stars included

first_img 11 11 11 Centre-back: Ramiro Funes Mori (Everton) – Coming up against the hardworking Danny Ings and the spritely Daniel Sturridge in only his second Premier League start will have been daunting for the Argentine, who had a shaky full debut against West Brom last week. He came through excellently though, winning six aerial duels and complete four tackles as he helped the Toffees to a 1-1 draw with rivals Liverpool. 11 Left winger: Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – After an ineffectual start to the campaign, the Chilean star has burst into life. His scintillating display against Manchester United was a joy to watch as he nabbed a brace from just three shots on goal. He also made four tackles to help his team keep out the Red Devils. Central midfield: Yohan Cabaye (Crystal Palace) – The classy French playmaker is a superb all-round footballer. Known for his passing, Cabaye’s distribution was excellent once again as he claimed an assist, but it’s now his defensive side that is impressing too. He made four tackles to halt West Brom’s foray’s forward and helped his team claim a clean sheet. 11 Centre-back: Per Mertesacker (Arsenal) – The Big F****** German had a Big F****** Problem on his hands going up against Anthony Martial on Sunday, but he came through with flying colours. The 31-year-old used all his experience to marshal the teen star and finished the game with clean sheet. Easy. Striker: Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) – We don’t really need to say too much here. The Argentine’s five goals in 20 minutes were sheer brilliance. 11 Central midfield: James McCarthy (Everton) – Another player who was superb defensively at the weekend was the Toffees’ Irish star. He broke up play at Goodison Park with considerable ease and with showed he’s not just a destroyer with some fine, and accurate, passing too. Right winger: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – The Premier League has a new baby-faced assassin. The Belgian has got three goals and two assists in his four Premier League appearances so far. His display against Newcastle was marvellous and, while Raheem Sterling struggles to make an impact, proves Manuel Pellegrini does know how to spend big money correctly. Goalkeeper: Heurelho Gomes (Watford) – He might have had his critics in the past but the Brazilian shot-stopper has been in great form for the Hornets this season. The Octopus’ long limbs helped him keep out Glenn Murray’s penalty, while also making five other saves to deny Bournemouth, ensuring Watford claimed a share of the spoils. 11 11 Left-back: Christian Fuchs (Leicester City) – The Austrian star made his first Premier League start of the campaign against Norwich City and put on a good display. His appearance also allowed the talented Jeffrey Schlupp to push forward, resulting in a goal for the Ghanaian. Right-back: Hector Bellerin (Arsenal) – A modern full-back if ever there was one. Able to charge upfield and assist his team-mates when Arsenal are on the attack and impressive defensively too, Bellerin is establishing himself as on of the best right-backs in the Premier League. He was a real threat against Manchester United and completely upstaged their summer signing Matteo Darmian too. 11 11 11 It was another weekend full of goals, excitement, and shocks in the Premier League.We’ve had the first managerial departures of the season with Dick Advocaat and Brendan Rodgers leaving Sunderland and Liverpool respectively.Manchester City are back at the top of the table after an astonishing 6-1 win over Newcastle, while rivals Man United drop down after being beaten comprehensively by Arsenal.But who were the outstanding performers in a thrilling two days of action?Click the right arrow above to find out who makes talkSPORT’s team of the weekend… Attacking midfield: Christian Eriksen (Tottenham) – The deadliest free-kick taker the Premier League has to offer. His double against Swansea saved Spurs from a Europa League hangover. The Dane needed to be on form too with attacking team-mates Nacer Chadli, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane all struggling to make an impact. last_img read more

Liverpool misfit linked with a move to Fiorentina

first_img1 Lazar Markovic Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic is a target for Fiorentina, according to reports in Italy.The Serbian moved to Anfield in the summer of 2014 in a £20m deal from Benfica.But since then the 21-year-old has not hit the heights expected of him and he has spent this season on loan at Fenerbahce, who are keen on securing him on a permanent deal.Now, according to La Nazione, Fiorentina are also interested in signing Markovic this summer.?The Italian club have been scouting the Serbia international after his agent hinted he would be keen to play in Serie A.Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is yet to run his eye over Markovic – but it is thought the Reds would be open to selling him at the right price.last_img read more

Axed boss is ‘confident’ he WOULD have avoided drop with Newcastle

first_img1 Former England boss Steve McClaren was sacked by the Premier League strugglers on Friday Steve McClaren has expressed his disappointment after being relieved of his duties at Newcastle United.The former England boss was sacked by the Premier League strugglers on Friday, with the Magpies 19th and one point from safety.McClaren’s last game in charge was a home defeat to Bournemouth, with the writing on the wall in the aftermath of the loss.The 54-year-old took training on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before he was replaced by Rafa Benitez on Friday.His position became untenable with his 28 league games bringing just six wins and 24 points despite an investment in the playing staff in excess of £82million.However, he remained insistent that he would have kept the club up given the opportunity.In a statement released through the League Managers’ Association, McClaren said: “I am obviously very disappointed with the decision.“I appreciate any frustrations relating to the team’s results and the club subsequently finding itself in a battle to avoid relegation. I remain confident, however, that we would have stayed in the Premier League with a view to building for next season.“Whilst there has been a lot of intense speculation surrounding my position over recent days, my sole priority has been to maintain my professionalism and carry on with my work to best prepare the team.“I would like to place on record what a privilege it has been to manage Newcastle United Football Club. It is a great a club – the embodiment of the city, with incredible supporters.“For every supporter of Newcastle United, I genuinely hope the club can produce the results I believe they are capable of, between now and the end of the season, to maintain their Premier League status.“Newcastle United is a club that must build for the long term to deliver what the supporters deserve – success and silverware.”Charnley paid tribute to McClaren’s dignity for the way he had handled a difficult situation.He said: “I would like to thank Steve personally for his services to Newcastle United. He is a man of integrity and class and he has conducted himself with great dignity during this difficult time.”READ: Joey Barton warns ‘top level’ manager Rafa Benitez: ‘If people don’t start putting the effort in, Newcastle United are in big trouble’last_img read more

United fans, time to ease off LVG? Four things the Dutchman deserves credit for

first_img 4. Keeping Manchester United afloat this season – read all about it, then click the arrow above to see three more things Van Gaal deserves credit for – The pressure on Van Gaal this term has been intense. For weeks, reports persistently claimed United were prepared to ditch the Dutchman and bring in sacked Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. There’s no question this will have been a difficult time, personally, for United’s manager. While some cracks have shown, however, he hasn’t melted under the heat. Instead, the Red Devils have stayed within touching distance of the top four and now, after victory over rivals City, they are just one point off the Premier League’s elite bracket. For now, they could also win silverware, in the shape of the FA Cup, which is more than can be said for Chelsea or Arsenal. 4 4 4 3. Luring major names to Old Trafford, even if they haven’t been successful – Angel Di Maria, Victor Valdes and Radamel Falcao didn’t deliver at Old Trafford, but there is absolutely no guarantee players from overseas will adapt to life in England. Brushing their influence – or rather, lack thereof – aside, what’s most important is Van Gaal hasn’t struggled to lure such distinguished names to Manchester. Despite their failure, the former Netherlands manager, a year later, signed Bastian Schweinsteiger and Anthony Martial. Van Gaal is clearly respected across Europe and hasn’t deterred players from joining his squad. 4 2. Keeping hold of De Gea – United may be a little fortunate given his move to Real Madrid fell through due to paperwork issues, but this shouldn’t overshadow the role that Van Gaal will have had in seeing the goalkeeper commit his future to the club. Such is his temperament, many may have been expecting the Spaniard to be frozen out at Old Trafford; yet the former Netherlands manager handled the situation well, bringing the stopper back into the side only once his future had been decided. And again, De Gea has been one of the Red Devils’ most consistent performers. 1. His commitment to the academy – While many criticise Van Gaal for falling behind in the Premier League and struggling in Europe, if there’s one thing he really deserves credit for, it’s his desire to nurture young blood at the club. Rather than play senior players out of position when others have suffered injured, the Dutchman has trusted those from his academy to make the step up. Marcus Rashford is currently stealing the headlines having followed up his brace against Arsenal by scoring the winner at the Etihad. The striker, however, isn’t alone in making the breakthrough. Jesse Lingard, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Donald Love are just a few to have been handed their debut by Van Gaal. Would Mourinho have been so trusting? Probably not. Louis van Gaal has come under fire this season.The Manchester United manager has been the subject of intense frustration from the Old Trafford with, at various stages in the campaign, many calling for his head.As April closes in, though, the Dutchman firmly remains in charge of the Premier League giants and it’s looking increasingly likely that he’ll see out the remaining year of his contract.So, the last eight months may not have been too enjoyable for the club’s supporters, but is it time to lay off Van Gaal?Taking this question into consideration, here are four things the 64-year-old deserves credit for – take a look by viewing the slideshow above.last_img read more

Transfer head-to-head: Arsenal targets Morata and Higuain compared

first_img 6 6 6 Goals – click the arrow, right, to see how else Morata and Higuain compare… – Morata only managed seven Serie A goals in 34 games last season for Juventus but did score the winner in the Coppa Italia final to help the club complete the double. His goal scoring record has never been great for the Old Lady as he only managed eight goals the season before. Higuain on the other hand scored 36 goals to break a 66-year Serie A goal scoring record, while no one else managed more than 20 goals. Since moving to Napoli in 2013, Higuain has 71 goals in 104 league appearances. Style of play – Morata scored three goals in Euro 2016 while playing in Spain’s possession-focused formation, similar to the style employed by Arsenal. He would therefore likely take less time to adapt to Wenger’s tactics and settle into the Premier League. Higuain is more of a forward that plays on the last man and uses his strength well, which would be an asset given the physicality of the Premier League. So, which player should Arsenal sign? – Arsenal have been linked with Higuain for a number of transfer windows and there must be something preventing Wenger for formally bidding for him. However, he is in his prime and would offer instant success rather than be another signing for the future, which Wenger has a tendency to lean towards. The Gunners must weigh up whether they are prioritising short-term success or building a team. If it is the former then Higuain is your man, if not, it’s Morata. Price – Both players will cost Arsenal a large chunk of their transfer budget for the summer, with proven goal scorers coming at a very high premium. Morata re-joined Real Madrid after Euro 2016 for £25.6m as part of a buy-back deal set when the Spaniard first moved to Juventus. However, Madrid are looking to cash in immediately and have made him available for between £57m-£64m. Higuain is being priced at around £75m by Napoli after the club’s president said he hoped the player wouldn’t betray the team by leaving. However, it is reported that Napoli would accept a fee in the region of £47m if Olivier Giroud moved in the opposite direction. Age and experience – At only 23, Morata is at the start of his career, having only made his first-team debut in 2010 and made 100 league appearances since. He has played in two Champions League finals and scored in one but he is not yet the finished article and would likely improve over time. At 28, Higuain is older than his former Real Madrid team-mate and very much in his prime. He has played in World Cup and Copa America finals and has a great deal more experience. Furthermore, he is rumoured to be following Lionel Messi into international retirement, which would improve his club football hugely, considering the travel involved in playing in South America. 6 Likelihood of transfer – Napoli are adamant they do not want to sell Higuain and this stubbornness to do business will only drive the Argentine’s price up. Higuain has also just enjoyed the season of his life and there is no guarantee he would want to leave Italy and join Arsenal. However, Morata is up for sale and the Premier League looks set to be his destination. Madrid are keen to sell which works in Arsenal’s favour, as does the fact they will guarantee him first-team football, something Chelsea cannot as long as Diego Costa is there. 6 Arsenal have already made one big name signing this summer by bringing in Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach for £34m, but they are keen to make more.Arsenal have missed a 20-goal-a-season man since Robin van Persie left the Emirates in 2013 and that is an area they are looking to strengthen this transfer window.The two main candidates to fill that void are Alvaro Morata and Gonzalo Higuain.Morata has just rejoined Real Madrid after they activated their buy-back clause in his Juventus contract, but he is available for transfer, while Higuain is fresh from completing the best goalscoring season of his career with 36 goals in 35 league games.But who should Arsenal and Arsene Wenger sign? talkSPORT puts the two star strikers head-to-head.Click the arrow above, right, to see how the pair compare!  6last_img read more

The hugely popular Letterkenny Credit Union ‘seasonal loan’ is back

first_imgLetterkenny Credit Union is urging local people to plan and avoid ‘financial indigestion’ during and after the Christmas spending season.With the build up to Christmas already well underway, Letterkenny Credit Union is inviting local people to consider their budgets now and plan ahead to avoid ‘financial indigestion’ this Christmas.Research carried out by the Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) showed that in 2015, a consumer in the Republic of Ireland would take on average eight and a half weeks to financially recover after overspending at Christmas. The 2015 research showed that 9% of people approached or considered approaching a moneylender to borrow for Christmas expenses with nearly half of all consumers expecting to borrow money to get through the Christmas season, borrowing on average €388.In 2015, Irish consumers expected to spend on average €563 on Christmas with middle aged and mature adults likely to spend the most amount of money.Letterkenny Credit Union is urging the public to avoid borrowing beyond their means and to particularly avoid using moneylenders. Knowing your limits in terms of your finances and avoiding unnecessary debt this Christmas is hugely important.Gordon Randles, CEO of Letterkenny Credit Union said: “We are all familiar with that bloated feeling after overdoing it at the Christmas dinner table. We want to ensure our members do not experience ‘financial indigestion’ well into 2018 by helping them to carefully plan their spending this Christmas. Our advice is to begin making Christmas preparations a little bit earlier this year. Setting a Christmas spending budget is more important now than ever, as is writing a list. This will allow people to keep tight control on the Christmas shopping costs.” He added “Using high interest rate sources of credit, such as moneylenders or credit cards, can result in people repaying the costs of Christmas long after the Christmas spirit has worn off. Some carefully planning now, be it via a savings plan or a low cost credit union loan, can help people to cope with the significant costs associated with the festive period, and ensure that they can get quickly get back on track”.For further information please contact Letterkenny Credit Union on (074) 9124166 or email [email protected] hugely popular Letterkenny Credit Union ‘seasonal loan’ is back was last modified: September 25th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Letterkenny Credit UnionSeasonal Loanlast_img read more
