Arteta Reveals Best Arsenal Player in 4-0 win Over Newcastle

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has named Dani Ceballos as the best player on the pitch in their 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle on Sunday. Ceballos was a surprise inclusion in Arsenal starting line-up for the game. The last time he started a game for the Gunners was in early November, the 1-1 draw with Vitoria in the Europa League. The Spaniard picked up a hamstring injury, which sidelined him for almost two months. “He was injured and when he started to train I didn’t think he was fit enough,” Arteta told the BBC. “He completely changed his behaviour and trained like an animal. I thought he was the best player on the pitch. “Dani was ideal for this game in that game position today. The way he’s been training he completely deserves a chance. “I’m so glad with his perfor...

Spain vs England A ‘Slap Of Reality’ By Ruthless England

Luis Enrique had said he was ready for the criticism and it fired from all angles after Spain were beaten by England on Monday for their first competitive defeat at home in 15 years. Enrique Three wins out of three and 12 goals scored had launched Spain into a new era of optimism after their miserable World Cup last summer. But La Roja were dealt a reality check, losing 3-2, as England ran riot during a whirlwind first half in Seville. Paco Alcacer’s header, and a Sergio Ramos goal with the last touch of the game, reduced the glare of the score but there was no doubting England were deserving winners. Raheem Sterling’s double and a smart finish from Marcus Rashford made sure of that. “Suddenly the Spain that seemed to be afloat again in this muddled League of Nations collapsed...

The Big Data Of Atletico Madrid Vs Real Madrid

Here, we take a look at some of the most interesting stats. Waiting on Griezmann and Ronaldo Some of the most interesting numbers are the goalscoring tallies of Antoine Griezmann and Cristiano Ronaldo, especially because they are so low. The former has just two LaLiga strikes to his name and the latter has one, while the Frenchman hasn't scored in the league in 647 minutes and the Portuguese hasn't done so in 275. However, Ronaldo usually does well against Atleti and his 21 goals in this fixture make them his second favourite victim. How do they score and concede? Atletico Madrid have conceded 10 goals so far and seven of those were headers. However, Los Rojiblancos rarely concede more than one, a scenario only Girona and Chelsea have been able to inflict on them so far this cam...

Ronaldo Is The Soul Of Real Madrid And The World’s Best, Says Ceballos

Dani Ceballos described Cristiano Ronaldo as "the soul of the team" after he made a decisive return to action in Real Madrid's Champions League win over APOEL.

Seven Real Madrid Players Await Their Champions League Debuts

Dani Ceballos, Theo Hernandez, Jesus Vallejo, Marcos Llorente, Achraf Hakimi, Luca Zidane and Borja Mayoral have never featured in the competition and are waiting to make their debuts - sooner, they hope, rather than later. For all of them, everything that they went through at Valdebebas on Tuesday was a new experience, from playing with the ball adorned with the famous stars to the new logo on the jersey to the increased media presence. It was a special morning as they prepare for their Champions League opener against APOEL, although they are aware that few of them will make their tournament debut on Wednesday. Theo and Mayoral have the biggest opportunity to potentially feature, as the former Atletico Madrid man has played more than any other summer signing so far, while injury to Kar...

Real Ready To Go Without Ronaldo Against United In Super Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo has finally returned to training with Real Madrid but the defending European champions are set to be without the Portuguese superstar in Tuesday’s UEFA Super Cup clash with Manchester United in Skopje. Ronaldo’s summer has been overshadowed by accusations of tax evasion in Spain, which led to him being charged in a court near Madrid last week, while he was handed an extended summer break by his club after playing for Portugal at the Confederations Cup. He only returned to training at the weekend, meaning it would be a major surprise if coach Zinedine Zidane were to include the 32-year-old against his former club in the match at the Philip II Arena in the Macedonian capital. “He needed to rest. He has had his holidays and that was important,” said Zidane of the ma...
