Can Thiago’s return to Liverpool’s midfield reignite the front three?

If there’s been any positive surrounding Liverpool’s recent Premier League form, it’s been the return of Thiago Alcantara to first-team action. The Spanish international was heralded as the missing piece of the jigsaw for Jurgen Klopp’s side when he signed from Bayern Munich in the summer – a player with ability to unlock stubborn defences, and give Liverpool more of an edge when taking on teams that defend deep. In his early performances for the Reds, you could already see the difference Thiago could make, but an injury suffered in the Merseyside Derby as a result of a horror challenge from Everton’s Richarlison left Thiago out of action for almost three months, and it’s only recently that he has regained full fitness and made his presence felt in Liverpool’s starting eleven once m...

Milan, who are currently top of the Italian table by three points, also have the option to extend Mandzukic's deal by a further year. The move for the former Juventus, Bayern Munich, and Atlético Madrid star has been lauded by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who said he is delighted to partner him in a bid to help secure the Serie A title this season. 'I am very happy,' the veteran Swedish striker told Sky Italia on Monday. 'There will be two o...

Woman accused of stealing laptop from Pelosi’s office during Capitol riot

Riley June Williams was arrested Monday, according to a Justice Department official. It’s not yet known when her initial court appearance will be. The FBI said in an arrest warrant Sunday that Williams hasn’t been charged with theft but only with illegally entering the Capitol and with disorderly conduct.

Lionel Messi sent off as Barcelona lose Spanish Super Cup to Athletic Bilbao

  Lionel Messi was shown the first red card of his Barcelona career as they were beaten 3-2 by Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup final on Sunday. Messi, in his 753rd appearance for Barca, swung at Asier Villalibre in the final seconds of extra time - an incident spotted by the VAR. Barca led twice through Antoine Griezmann but Oscar de Marcos and Villalibre, in the final minute, scored as Athletic replied each time. Inaki Williams scored a fine winner. The game in Seville was set to be remembered as an entertaining encounter - and for Athletic's second trophy since 1985 - until the late drama. Messi lashed out at goalscorer Villalibre off the ball in the 120th minute. The referee missed the clash at the time before viewing it on the VAR screen and dismissing M...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Shows Off Ageless Skills With Amazing Spin And No-Look Pass

  The 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic showed off his ageless skills for AC Milan with a unique first touch, turn and no-look pass against Cagliari. The super Swede had already put his side 1-0 up from the penalty spot when he picked up the ball just outside the opposition area. Nothing looked on - but this is Zlatan. So of course he flicked the ball up into the air, spun and kung-fu kicked it with the outside of his boot. The ball went straight into the path of teammate Diogo Dalot as he ran towards the box. It was an amazing piece of skill and gymnastic dexterity that belied the fact that Zlatan turns 40 years old later this year. This man simply does not age. His work for the night wasn't finished there, either. In the second half, Ibra sped through onto Davide Calabri...

Emile Smith Rowe’s Highlights vs Newcastle Prove He’s The Player Arsenal Have Needed For A Very Long Time

  You know what they say; when one door closes, another one opens. For many Arsenal fans, the departure of Mesut Ozil was a disappointing one. For years, the club have needed a playmaker to link play, create chances and score goals - and at one stage, the German provided that must-needed creative spark. In the 2015/16 campaign, Ozil picked up 19 assists in 35 Premier League matches. On his day, he was one of the best in world football but those days became few and far between towards the end of his time in North London. He struggled to maintain a place in the club's starting line-up and the rest is history. Ozil has now departed for pastures new and in his place, 20-year-old Emile Smith Rowe has come in and taken his opportunity with both hands. Gary Neville compared hi...

Vidal and Barella scores as Inter beat Juventus

  Antonio Conte guided Inter Milan to victory against his former club Juventus as the Nerazzurri moved level on points with AC Milan at the top of Serie A. Arturo Vidal's headed first-half opener was his first top-flight goal in Italy for almost six years, having last scored for Juventus in May 2015. Nicolo Barella, who created the first, made it two with a fine run and finish. Champions Juventus were lacklustre at the San Siro and remain fifth. Andrea Pirlo's side are seven points adrift of the two Milan clubs and AC Milan can edge clear at the summit again if they win at Cagliari on Monday. Conte, who guided Juve to three Serie A titles between 2012 and 2014 to begin the Turin club's run of nine successive scudetti, had failed to beat his former club in two previou...

Will 2021 be the year that Novak Djokovic closes the gap on Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer?

As things currently stand, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are both sitting on a whopping 20 Grand Slam titles. Federer’s absence from the tour through injury last year gave Nadal the chance to level the scores at the top of the men’s game, and he duly delivered, winning his 13th French Open last October. But for Novak Djokovic, who is hot on the heels of Nadal and Federer with 17 Slams, the chance to close the gap even further was somewhat squandered. At the Australian Open last January, where Djokovic has tasted the most success, the Serbian landed his eighth title, taking him to just three major titles behind Federer and Nadal. However, that was his only Grand Slam title of the year, his worst return since 2017, when he failed to win any of tennis’ big four tournaments. Of cour...

However this is not her first big chop; so I bet she it all planned out and unlike what many expected, Brenda Wairimu actually came out looking more like a doll – and boy we love it! With new changes comes two thigh tattoos that Brenda recently added to her list of body art. As seen on her IG page Brenda used this to throw shade at those who think they can hurt her.

Paul Pogba’s Individual Highlights vs Burnley Prove He’s Officially Back To His Best

  Paul Pogba gave one of his best performances in a Manchester United shirt on Tuesday night as his side went three points clear in the Premier League title race. The French midfielder has struggled to really impose himself on the club's season in recent months, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opting for the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay in midfield, but last night's performance against Burnley was nothing short of outstanding. Pogba often found himself further forward against Sean Dyche's side and as a result, he was able to showcase his ability to make a difference in the final third, spraying passes to wide areas while drilling through balls to Anthony Martial. As you can see below, it was a sublime performance from the 27-year-old midfielder, who topped off a great outin...

Patriots coach Belichick refuses Medal of Freedom from Trump

  New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday he would not accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Donald Trump as planned this week after the "tragic" riot at the US Capitol last Wednesday. Belichick, who has guided the Patriots to six Super Bowl titles, said in a written statement that he was "flattered" to be considered for the highest civilian honor in the United States but had decided against accepting. "Recently, I was offered the opportunity to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which I was flattered by out of respect for what the honor represents and admiration for prior recipients," Belichick said in the statement. "Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award." R...

Melania Trump breaks silence on Congress invasion

First Lady Melania Trump broke her silence on Monday regarding last week's invasion of Congress by her husband's supporters, complaining that she has been unfairly treated. The first lady's absence has drawn attention in the wake of the national crisis that erupted on Wednesday when President Donald Trump encouraged a large crowd of angry followers to march on Congress. The mob broke into the Capitol, ransacking offices and fighting with police. Melania Trump's first comments on the ugly scenes arrived in a typo-strewn statement on the White House website where she described herself as "disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week." But her disappointment apparently was as much to do with her own treatment as over the unprecedented assault on the home of US democr...

Tanasha Donna speaks of empty life before converting to Islam

Tanasha Donna is slowly leaving back her old life. I mean so far she has cut off a number of friends from her former circle; and lately she seems more of a private person unlike before. The party lifestyle has also been reduced to nothing; and judging from her IG stories, I bet Miss Donna now prefers to stay indoors with her young man than jump from one city to another in the name of fun. She however owes all this to Diamond Platnumz; the man that changed her life and career overnight. As we all know, Tanasha Donna’s fame grew after getting into a relationship with Bongo singer, Diamond Platnumz. As much as some of her friends would disagree; truth is, Tanasha was famous before Diamond – but this same man is the reason her name spread like wild fire in Africa. Right? Anyway de...

Armstrong Oko-Flex Nearly Makes Celtic Debut With AirPods In His Ears

    Celtic youngster Armstrong Oko-Flex nearly made his professional debut for the club with AirPods in his ears. The Hoops were taking on Hibernian on Monday evening and wanted to inject something fresh up front. Oko-Flex was called from the bench and was ready to make his Scottish Premiership debut. But the 18-year-old still had his AirPods in while putting his shirt on and he was seconds away from taking to the pitch with them still in. It's likely he was using them to communicate with members of the Celtic coaching staff who weren't in attendance at the game. Manager Neil Lennon and 14 Celtic players were forced to self-isolate after Christopher Jullien tested positive for Covid-19. Regardless of the reason, fans were still in shock at seeing Oko-Flex ...

‘Amad Diallo Can Be Manchester United’s New Cristiano Ronaldo’

    Rio Ferdinand has branded Amad Diallo as a potential "world-beater" and likened his transfer to that of Cristiano Ronaldo when he signed for Manchester United. The Red Devils announced the signing of Diallo, 18, from Atalanta after striking a deal before the transfer window closed in October. The 18-year-old joins the Old Trafford club in a move worth up to £37.2 million. And former United defender Ferdinand believes Diallo's transfer bares resemblance to Ronaldo's switch to the club from Sporting CP back in 2003. Speaking on FIVE YouTube channel, he said: "We've just bought a kid in from Atalanta and hopefully he does something. "If you see his clips and speak to people at the club who are involved in buying him, potentially this kid could be a world-bea...

‘It takes real courage to hear the worst about you & still walk with your head held high’ – Kelly Khumalo

South African singer, Kelly Khumalo has spoken about how her tenacious spirit gets her past the negativity thrown at her. The singer took to Instagram this week to share a snap of herself looking radiant. In a caption she wrote that she was a “god that was downgraded to a queen”. “It takes real courage to hear the worst things about you and still walk with your head held high, After all, I am a god that was downgraded to a queen,” she wrote. The reality TV star opened up in August last year about the hate she got after the death of her daughter's father, former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa. Senzo was gunned down at Kelly's family home in Vosloorus during an alleged house robbery in 2014. In an interview on MassivMetro, DJ Sbu asked Kelly what she would say to Se...

The trials and tribulations of riverboat casinos

Before the construction of buildings that were dedicated to gambling, which we now know as casinos, fans of table top gaming had to find new ways to facilitate the pastime. And, with online casino in the UK households quickly becoming the most popular way to pass the time, it’s interesting to see how far the act of gambling has come over the years, long before we were able to play the classic games from the comfort of our homes! A great way to get around those pesky guidelines was to host casino games onboard a riverboat – an idea that dominated the scene in 19th century America. These boats were already being used as a means of commuting and trading, and wealthy merchants would often indulge in a couple of card games to pass the time on their journey. The idea of gambling on riv...

Court grants Sowore N20m bail

A magistrate court sitting in Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, has granted bail to Omoyele Sowore, convener of the Revolution Now Movement, in the sum of N20 million. Sowore, Peter Williams, Sanyaolu Juwon, Emmanuel Bulus and Damilare Adenola were arrested on New Year’s eve during a procession organised and led by Sowore. The police had arraigned the five persons last Monday on a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy, unlawful assembly, and incitement. Mabel Segun-Bello, the magistrate, had ordered that they be remanded at the Kuje correctional centre. But last Tuesday, they were transferred to the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID) after Sowore reported that they were denied access to healthcare, food, and water. Marshal Abubakar, counsel to the defen...
