Back To Back Wins For The Arsenal

Odegaard Arsenal

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has gone back to the 90’s as the Arsenal win their second consecutive game 1-0. In the 90’s Arsenal were famous for their 1-0 victories, and it looks like Arteta is rebuilding the Gunners with that blueprint of a strong defence and opportunistic scoring.

Against Burnley, Martin Odegaard’s first-half free-kick gave Arsenal their first away win of the season after Ashley Westwood had clipped Bukayo Saka on the edge of the area.

It was Odegaard’s first goal since joining the Gunners on a permanent basis from Real Madrid in a £30m deal last month.

Mane Stars As Liverpool Go Top

Liverpool remains unbeaten in the Premier League this season after Sadio Mane scored his 100th goal for the club in a victory against Crystal Palace.

Jurgen Klopp’s side created numerous chances against a resilient Palace before Mane pounced on a rebound at the back post in the first half.

Mohamed Salah doubled their lead with just over 10 minutes remaining when he smashed home a flick-on from a corner, before Naby Keita’s late curling strike made it 3-0.

Liverpool were wasteful in the first half as Diogo Jota fired over the bar from a few yards out in a glorious position, while Thiago and Jordan Henderson were also denied by keeper Vicente Guaita.

The best club competition in the world returned last week as the new Champions League season got underway with some high-profile matches.

The top teams like Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Manchester City all showed that they are true contenders to win the Champions League this season. Meanwhile, other potential contenders like Manchester United, Barcelona and PSG failed to live up to expectations on matchday 1.

Player of the round was undoubtedly Ajax striker Sebastien Haller who scored four goals in Ajax’s 5-1 hammering of Sporting Lisbon.

Ole Puts Blame On Players After Another Champions League Defeat

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Per usual, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blamed the players for other disappointing Champions League performance.

Solskjaer, who has managed to lose 7 of the 11 Champions League matches he has managed in, said that the players must learn from their mistakes in Europe if they to avoid another early Champions League exit.

Tuesday night’s shock defeat in Bern echoed a 2-1 loss to Basaksehir in Istanbul last November that was the beginning of the end of United’s group campaign as they dropped into the Europa League.

Arsenal Ease Pressure Of Arteta With First Win

Arteta Arsenal

Arsenal lifted the pressure on manager Mikel Arteta as they secured their first points of the Premier League season with victory over Norwich City at Emirates Stadium.

Arteta was under mounting scrutiny after a miserable start to the campaign with three defeats that left the Gunners at the foot of the table, so a win that was workmanlike rather than spectacular will be gratefully received.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was back on target to set Arsenal on their way after 66 minutes, with a finish from almost on the goal-line after Canaries’ keeper Tim Krul turned Nicolas Pepe’s shot on to the post and the same player then struck the woodwork again.

Ronaldo Delivers As Manchester United Go Top Of Premier League

Ronaldo MUFC

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice on his return as Manchester United cruised to victory against Newcastle United and delighted a packed and loud Old Trafford.

United fans have been buzzing for over a week now about the return of Ronaldo and he was cheered from the moment he left the team coach on its arrival at the ground, throughout the warm-up and then once the game had started.

Being the showman that he is, Ronaldo repaid the adoration of the United fans in the best possible manner when he broke the deadlock in first-half added time when he tapped in after visiting keeper Freddie Woodman spilled Mason Greenwood’s shot.

United have agreed to pay £12.8m for the 36-year-old, with the deal subject to personal terms, a visa and a medical.

Ronaldo seemed destined to join rivals Manchester City, but calls from io Ferdinand and Sir Alex Ferguson persuaded the United legend return to Old Trafford where he spent six years and won three Premier League titles, one Champions League, two League Cups and one FA Cup – as well as the Fifa Club World Cup and Community Shield –

The Reds got their 2021-22 campaign off to the best possible start with goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah at Carrow Road.

Bruno and Pogba Help United Thrash Leeds

Bruno and Paul Pogba

Bruno Fernandes scored an opening-day hat-trick as Manchester United swept Leeds aside with a devastating second-half display.

The Portugal midfielder opened the scoring on the half-hour mark at a packed Old Trafford, but Luke Ayling’s thunderous strike drew Leeds level early in the second half.

Mason Greenwood restored the hosts’ lead with a crisp finish less than two minutes later, before Fernandes’ low shot was ruled to have crossed the line by referee Paul Tierney after a check of goalline technology.

The 26-year-old quickly completed his hat-trick with a thumping finish from Victor Lindelof’s pass, before Fred added United’s fourth goal in 14 minutes from Paul Pogba’s cross – the Frenchman’s fourth assist of the afternoon.
