The Belgian is beginning to demonstrate his qualities with Los Blancos after a tough period following his move from Chelsea. "He will be the answer but not in replacing Ronaldo that is for sure," Wenger told beIN Sports about Hazard. "He will not score 50 goals a year because that's now how they play football. "They need another goal scorer in Real Madrid because Benzema is now 32 and if they had someone younger around him to score the goals, maybe they could do very well. "Eden Hazard is an exceptional player to create chances to sometimes finish when he needs to do in big games. "He's not scared of anybody - I don't think Real have yet to see the real Hazard, he's not a...

How Hee-chan Dribbled Van Dijk To Score Against Liverpool (Video)

Here is the shocking moment RB Salzburg striker Hwang Hee-Chan sent Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk back home shops on Wednesday with a superb piece of skill in the final third. The South Korean forward gave one of the world's best centre-back's a real headache towards the end of the second half, turning him inside out before netting a great goal to make it 1-3. Van Dijk, who went 55 Premier League games in a row without being dribbled past, could only stand and watch as Hee-Chan slotted past Adrian in the Liverpool net. Hee-Chan actually became the first player to score at Anfield in the Champions League since match day one of the 2018/19 season, ending their run of five clean sheets. Liverpool went into the break with a 3-1 lead after goals from Sadio Mane, Andrew Robe...

Mario Balotelli scored his first Serie A goal for 1,468 days but Napoli hung on to claim a narrow victory over Brescia at Stadio San Paolo

Dries Mertens opened the scoring with his fourth league goal of the season before Kostas Manolas headed in the second on the stroke of half-time. Brescia rallied after the break but Sandro Tonali's stunning goal was ruled out by VAR for a foul in the build-up. Balotelli headed home to set up a tense finale, but Napoli held on. The 29-year-old last found the net in Italy's top flight on 22 September 2015 in AC Milan's 3-2 win at Udinese, before spells at Nice and Marseille in France. He returned to Italy to join hometown club Brescia in August on a three-year deal. The result sees Napoli strengthen their grip on fourth place in Serie A, while Brescia remain 14th. Carlo Ancelotti's side resume their Champions League campaign at Genk on Wednesday, 2 October (17:55 BST), befo...

Teams Divock Origi Scores Against All Suffer The Following Season

Football teams beware, Divock Origi has a curse to pass on and it will damage your season. Liverpool striker Origi became somewhat of a hero at Anfield last season. The Belgian scored last minute goals in the Premier League to keep the Reds' dream of winning the title alive and more importantly scored in the Champions League semi final and final. If Barcelona and Spurs thought his goals were a big blow at the time then what they didn't realise is the lasting effect the goals would have on them. The six teams he scored against last season have all had bad starts to the season whilst five teams he scored against in previous seasons have suffered relegations. Since conceding against Origi, Barcelona have lost the Copa del Rey final and started La Liga with just three wins from the...

Sarri blames Juventus ‘naivety and physical condition’ for loss to Tottenham

The coach reflected on a difficult first game in charge of the Turin side as they went down 3-2 to Spurs on Sunday in the International Champions Cup Maurizio Sarri urged Juventus to show less naivety on the ball after Adrian Rabiot's late lapse led to a 3-2 loss to Tottenham in Singapore. The Serie A champions succumbed to defeat in Sarri's first match in charge courtesy of Harry Kane's sublime lob over Wojciech Szczesny from inside the centre circle in the third minute of added time. New signing Rabiot dallied on the ball and invited a tackle from Lucas Moura, from which the ball spilled into Kane's path, allowing him to score what he described as "probably one of the best goals in my career"
