daniel-sturridgeLuis who? A lot of the talk this summer has been how Liverpool can replace the 30+ goals that Luis Suarez scored last season. What has been lost in the conversation is that the other half of the SaS partnership, Daniel Sturridge is still a Liverpool player.

On Sunday Sturridge shouldered the responsibility as Liverpool’s new main man up front with a late winner in a 2-1 defeat of Southampton at Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers has spent most of preseason working on improving Liverpool’s shaky back-four, but that unit showed that they are not yet a fully formed defensive unit when goalkeeper Simon Mignolet got in a tangle with Graziano Pelle at Southampton’s first corner, almost presenting the visitors with an easy chance.

Fast forward 12 months United unveil another new manager and once again Swansea were his first opponents as Swansea travelled to Old Trafford for Louis van Gaal’s first competitive game in charge.

Manuel-PellegriniManchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has defended his decision to have no English or UK players in his starting line-up for the Community Shield defeat by Arsenal.

Four English players made the City bench at Wembley on Sunday but an all-foreign starting XI reflected Pellegrini’s recent transfer deals.

The only British signing that Pellegrini made this summer was Frank Lampard but the Man City boss seemed to indicate that he doesn’t see nationality saying:

“We’ve had a lot of problems with Financial Fair Play, but we bought some very important players.

suarez-teethThe Court of Arbitration for Sport have upheld Luis Suarez’s four-month ban for biting Italy‘s Giorgio Chiellini during this summer’s World Cup. Suarez’s lawyers argued that Fifa’s decision to suspend him from all “football-related activity” for biting Chiellini was excessive.

While the Cas did not reduce Suarez’s ban, they have ruled that the Uruguay striker can now train and play in friendly matches, including for new club Barcelona on Monday against Mexico‘s Club Leon.

Suarez will also be available for Uruguay’s upcoming friendlies against Japan and South Korea in September and Saudi Arabia the following month.

Javier-HernandezMexico national team manager Miguel Herrera says he is in favor of Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez leaving Manchester United this summer.

Hernandez made 24 league appearances for United last season, but just six of those were starts, and reportedly he has been told by new United manager Louis Van Gaal to look for another club.

Herrera is of the belief that a change of scenery in needed and thinks Hernandez’s rumored move to Juventus would serve the player well.

In a move that really smells of desperation, Barcelona have paid a reported £15 million for Arsenal defender, and signed the 28-year-old to a five-year contract.

This was followed on Sunday by a statement on Barcelona’s website.

“Thomas Vermaelen is now officially an FC Barcelona player. A few minutes past 11:15am, the player signed a contract with the Catalan club. It is an agreement that binds him with the club for the next five seasons, until 2018/19.”

The defender passed a medical on Saturday and was presented to fans and media at the Nou Camp on Sunday after finalising the deal.

arsenal-community-shieldArsenal took apart a poor and uninterested Manchester City side 3-0 in the FA Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday. Arsene Wenger’s side dominated the first half where they got goals from Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey before substitute Olivier Giroud added a glorious long-range third.

With £30m new signing Alexis Sanchez impressing on a sunny afternoon in London, Arsenal’s fans will hope it proves the precursor to a sustained title challenge. Victory in the traditional season curtain-raiser suggests Arsenal are in fine form ahead of their opening league fixture at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
