|Sports / Manchester United Monitoring Evans Contract Status by GoalooNG1: 8:17am On Nov 30, 2020|
Manchester United are considering making a move to bring Leicester City defender Jonny Evans back to Old Trafford, The Sun on Sunday reports.
Evans, 32, came through the youth ranks at United and won three Premier League titles over the course of almost 200 appearances for the club.
The Northern Ireland international joined Leicester in 2018, following a three-year spell at West Brom, and is one of the most important players in Brendan Rodgers' side.
However, with Evans' contract due to expire at the end of the season, United are monitoring the situation with a view to him filling the need of a left-sided centre-back in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.

A hat trick played by Diogo Jota help Liverpool win over Atalanta in first round of the League. They are so competitive that they get a three-match winning streak in the League.
They are shaken by a three-match losing streak in recent games. And they do not play well in the League, sitting the third place in Group D with 1W-1D-1L.
|Sports / Offensive Battle， This Game Would Be Exciting by GoalooNG1: 9:30am On Nov 25, 2020|
What worries people is that they encounter a challenge that a lot of their key players have to suspend due to injuries. It can be seen that they have drawn with Werder Bremen at 1-1 in last game, which has never happened in the past.
Red Bull Salzburg
It is the first time for them to suffer a defeat in Austrian Bundesliga this season, which is from Sturm Graz in last game. But they do not play well in the League, ranking the last in Group A with 1 point.

They do not play as well as expected in recent games. What’ worse, Daniel Carvajal Ramos has been out injured. They are likely to upgrade for ranking the second in Group B if they keep up the chase.

Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyesi
They do not play steadily this season with less than 50% winning percentage. However, they are facing a great challenge that about 10 players have to suspend due to injuries, which has an impact on their playing.
|Sports / Messi And Dejong Will Miss This Game, Barca Can Win Easily? by GoalooNG1: 10:12am On Nov 24, 2020|
Thanks to a 2-0 victory over FC Inhulets Petrove in last game, Dynamo Kyiv end their two-match losing streak. But it also shows their problem in attacking and tactics, which takes time to be solved. And they have only one win in recent four host games.
Their unbeaten streak has been broken by Atletico Madrid in last game. It seems that their biggest problem in recent games is their defensive, with 5 conceding goals in recent 4 matches. Moreover, they play poorly in recent 4 away games with 4 points in total.

|Sports / Barcelona’s Pique And Roberto Both Suffered Injuries by GoalooNG1: 4:39am On Nov 23, 2020|
Barcelona defenders Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto are facing lengthy spells on the sidelines after tests confirmed they had knee and hamstring injuries respectively.
The two were hurt during the 1-0 league defeat at Atletico Madrid on Saturday.
Examinations carried out on Sunday revealed Pique has a grade three sprain to his internal lateral ligament and a partial anterior cruciate ligament injury to his right knee. Right-back Sergi Roberto has a ruptured hamstring in his right leg.
Barca have not revealed how long Pique will be out of action for although there is speculation the 33-year-old centre-back could be sidelined for at least eight weeks. They did confirm that Sergi Roberto will need approximately two months to recover.
Pique and Sergi Roberto have each made 10 appearances for Barca this season.
Clement Lenglet is the only fit central defender for Tuesday's game at Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League. Samuel Umtiti and Ronald Araujo are unavailable due to other fitness issues.

"I am worried just as any coach would be," Barca boss Ronald Koeman said after Saturday's game when asked about the latest injuries. "There are many injuries because of the calendar we have.
"We have to wait and see how long they'll be out for but clearly I'm worried."
Barca are also without Sergio Busquets, who suffered a knee injury while on international duty with Spain, and Ansu Fati, who recently underwent knee surgery.
|Sports / Leeds United VS Arsenal Preview by GoalooNG1: 4:37am On Nov 22, 2020|
As a newly promoted team, Leeds United performed well at the beginning of the new season, but due to their weak defensive sides, they suffered successive massacres by Leicester City and Crystal Palace. In general, the current state of Leeds United is unsteady. After two consecutive defeats, how will Leeds United adjust themselves?
Arsenal's performances since this season also have ups and downs. They achieved three consecutive victories some time ago, but they lost to Aston Villa with 0:3 in last home game, falling out of the top ten again. In fact, judging from the previous losses to Leicester City, Manchester City and Liverpool, Arsenal has an obvious problem of insufficient ability. Fortunately, only 8 rounds have been scheduled in this Premier League, and they still have time to get points.

|Sports / Meet The Weak Team At Home, Man Utd Have No Reason To Lose Points by GoalooNG1: 10:06am On Nov 21, 2020|
As a top team in the League, what they play this season disappoints their fans. They are the fourteenth in the table with a record of 3W-1D-3L. Although they are full of excellent players such as Donny van de Beek, Mason Greenwood and so on, they do not play well. Obviously their defensive tactics is not available to the League game.
It seems that they do not adapt to the League as the newly-promoted this season. They have no win this season, being in the degrade zone. It is because they have few signings this season so that they are not enough quality. What’s worse, they are facing the challenge of replacing coach because of their poor records.
|Sports / Top Fight At English Premier League by GoalooNG1: 4:56am On Nov 21, 2020|
They play steadily as expected. Although they are sitting the third place in the table of the League, there is only one point separating them from the first. Their greatest strength is their offensive, with 2.25 scoring goals in average.
It is a pity that they have not been in top four in last season. So they are full of ambitions and long for a better record. It is tough for them in the beginning but now they have a six-match winning streak and rank the first in the table of the League.
|Sports / Tottenham Hotspur Or Manchester City ? by GoalooNG1: 4:28am On Nov 21, 2020|
They are the second in the table of the League with the help of their excellent player, Son Heung Min and Harry Kane. And they suffer only one defeat from Royal Antwerp in UEFA Europa League recently.
They are sitting the tenth place in the table of the League with 12 points. There are 6 points separating them from the first. And they draw with Liverpool at 1-1 in last game by a goal scored by Gabriel Fernando de Jesus.
|Sports / Kimmich Would Be Absence， Could Bayern Munchen Win Easily? by GoalooNG1: 10:35am On Nov 19, 2020|
They have a ten-match winning streak in recent games. It is lucky for them to win over Borussia Dortmund in last game though they do not take the upped hand. Because most of their key players play for their national teams, they are weak in physical strength now, which we can see from last game.
They have been winless for four matches. It is unconvincing that they have taken only one point from FC Koln. What’s more, many key players have been on on international duty so that Werder Bremen have to replace them with substitutes, resulting in a 2-4 defeat in last game against St. Pauli.
|Sports / Need Points To Go To The Top, Real Madied Desired To Win by GoalooNG1: 7:32am On Nov 19, 2020|
What they do this season surprises people. They are almost unbeaten except a 0-4 defeat to FC Barcelona in 9 rounds, ranking the second in the table of the League with 18 points. They are very competitive especially when as host, getting a six-match winning streak in home game.
They are 2 points behind Villarreal in the table of the League with a game in hand. It means that if they take three points from Villarreal in the upcoming game, they will rank higher. But they are not in form, which score an own goal and give three penalty away in last game.
|Sports / Man Utd To Present New Jadon Sancho Bid As Twist Forces Dortmund’s Hand by GoalooNG1: 3:08am On Nov 19, 2020|
Manchester United remain hopeful of signing Jadon Sancho next summer after reports in Spain claimed a major factor had swung events in their favour.England attacker Jadon Sancho was United’s top summer transfer target, but they failed to get anywhere near signing the 20-year-old.
It’s understood the Bundesliga side were open to selling Sancho at the start of the summer, on their own terms.
United chief Ed Woodward though failed to match the Germans’ demands and once the deadline passed their chances of signing Sancho evaporated.
Ultimately, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s claim that United were one of the most “financially well-off” clubs did not sit well with BVB chiefs.
However, Spanish outlet Todofijaches is adamant that all is not lost for United.
They state that Sancho, while happy at Dortmund, has told the Bundesliga club he ultimately wants to play for United.
As such, that will reportedly force the Bundesliga giants back round the negotiation table with United.
And while Dortmund are unlikely to relent on their €120m asking price, they do, its claimed, now accept that Sancho will move on.
Indeed, Todofijaches are confident that a deal to take Sancho to United could be completed before the European Championships. They even suggest that, with talks due to resume early in 2021, a deal could be announced before the end of the January window.
That arrangement would see the clubs confirm the deal, but for Sancho to see out the season at the Westfalonstadion.
Norwegian pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft is also adamant both Sancho and Erling Haaland could still be lured away.
He says Dortmund status as a nearly club could ultimately lead to them opting to move on. And only winning a major trophy this season could indeed persuade them to stay.
|Sports / Both Have Best State, Who Will Win This Game? by GoalooNG1: 8:41am On Nov 17, 2020|
They have defeated England at 2-0 as host in last game, leading to a three-match winning streak. But due to their key player Eden Hazard’s absence for injury, they do not play well. Fortunately they are the first in Group A, League B, they will upgrade as long as they get more one point.
They go on a run now with a five-match winning streak. But they are not good at offensive. In last game against Iceland, they score 2 goals by awarding two penalty. If they get three more points, they will upgrade. But it seems to be impossible for them when they meet Belgium.
|Sports / Is Cameroon Still The Top Team In Africa? by GoalooNG1: 8:20am On Nov 16, 2020|
The Indomitable Lions impressed in their third group game, with Porto attacker Aboubakar scoring a brace. Dynamo Moscow forward Clinton N’Jie, who scored as a substitute in the 4-1 win over Mozambique, is pushing for a start.
Os Mambas aim to retain their spot in top two, and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Monday’s football match. However, we do not believe that the hosts are capable of grabbing something from the game as they were totally outplayed by Cameroon at Stade de la Reunification four days ago. Taking everything into account, Cameroon are more of a team than Mozambique, and we are tempted to put our money on the Group F leaders.
|Sports / Should Ramos Shoot Penalty Again? by GoalooNG1: 7:25am On Nov 16, 2020|
They draw with Swiss in last game because their key player Sergio Ramos miss two penalty. Now they are the second in Group D, League A with 8 points. There are two points separating them from the third, Ukraine, which means that they have to take one point from Germany or they will not qualify.
They have been unbeaten in the League with a record of 2W-3D, ranking the first in Group D, League A. They will certainly qualify even if they lose to Spain in the upcoming game. Both young players and experienced players are involved, which helps Germany a lot.
|Sports / Denmark VS Iceland Preview by GoalooNG1: 10:10am On Nov 15, 2020|
Denmark is currently ranked 16th in the world. In recent matches, Denmark’s performance is also very stable. After defeating Sweden in a friendly match, the team has won a wave of 4 consecutive victories in all competitions, scoring 10 goals during the period and lost no goal. The performance on offense and defense is perfect.
Iceland has performed very badly in the recent period. The first four games of this UEFA Europa League have been defeated. This has a great blow to the morale of the team. From various data, it can be seen that Iceland's current strength has been Not as good as before.
|Sports / Italy VS Poland Preview by GoalooNG1: 9:31am On Nov 15, 2020|
They play steadily in recent games. Vincenzo Grifo who scored twice in last game against Estonia helps Italy get a 4-0 victory. Italy have been unbeaten for 20 matches with more than 75% winning percentage.
They are in form in recent games with a record of 4W-1D. And they play well this season, ranking the first in Group A, League A with 7 points, leaving Italy as well as Netherlands behind.
|Sports / England Do Not Afraid The World No.1 by GoalooNG1: 8:17am On Nov 15, 2020|
As the world’s No. 1 team in football, Belgium’s combat effectiveness is naturally beyond doubt, and in order to prepare for the next UEFA Nations League matches, the Belgium squad recruited stars including Lukaku, Carrasco and others. They have not only remained unbeaten in the last 10 home games, but also have a winning rate of 80%. At the same time, their offensive firepower with 3 goals per game is terrifying.
England is currently ranked 4th in the world, and the team's recent strength status is also good. They easily defeated Ireland 3-0 in a friendly game a few days ago. As England currently has 3 wins and 1 loss in the UEFA Nations League, if they want to win the group's first place, this match must take all three points, fighting spirit is high.
|Sports / Against His Idol Again, Mbappé Should Prove Himself! by GoalooNG1: 10:10am On Nov 12, 2020|
Portugal has won 3 wins and 1 draw after four rounds of the UEFA Nations League to remain undefeated. Currently, they leads the standings with 10 points and has 4 goal difference ahead of France. Portugal's lineup ushered in the return of Ronaldo, especially the recent outstanding performance in Liverpool Joto has also been selected.
France also scored 3 wins and 1 draw in the group, and the state and morale are very good. However, the team's defense has been slightly slack recently. 3 goals have been conceded in all competitions in the past 4 games. The most recent friendly game was 0-2 loss to Finland at home and morale was greatly affected. However, they have many stars and have the ability to influence the game.
|Sports / Nigeria VS Sierra Leone Preview by GoalooNG1: 7:28am On Nov 12, 2020|
Nigeria started their AFCON qualification with a 2-1 win over Benin and followed it up with a 4-2 win over Lesotho. No side in the group have scored as many as Nigeria, who have now extended their unbeaten run in AFCON qualifiers to seven matches winning six and drawing one. Six of those seven have produced over 2.5 goals with four returning over 3.5 goals, so action is guaranteed in Nigeria’s matches. The record is more or less the same at home as Nigeria have won their last three AFCON qualifiers played at home each time scoring at least two goals. However, they are in poor form, as Nigeria were only able to draw with Tunisia at 1-1 International Friendly after losing to Algeria at 1-0.
Sierra Leone started their qualification campaign with a 1-1 draw against Lesotho but were soon defeated 1-0 by Benin. This is in line with their form in AFCON qualifiers, as Sierra Leone have won just one of their last 12 matches drawing four and losing seven. Worryingly enough, Sierra Leone have failed to score in six of those 12, although two of those were in goalless draws. Away from home, the Sierra Leone side is yet to win an AFCON qualification game, drawing five and losing ten of their 15 matches so far. The only preparation that Sierra Leone had was a friendly against Mauritania that saw them lose 2-1. Undoubtedly Nigeria will win.
|Sports / Man Utd Should Sell 'undisciplined' Star, Says Carragher by GoalooNG1: 4:09am On Nov 11, 2020|
Pogba can't compare to Gerrard, Lampard or Yaya and Man Utd should sell 'undisciplined' star, says Carragher
The former Liverpool defender has said he doesn't believe the World Cup winner is a great player
Paul Pogba can't compare to past midfield greats like Steven Gerrard, Yaya Toure or Frank Lampard, according to Jamie Carragher, who thinks that Manchester United should sell the French international.
The 27-year-old has struggled for consistent first-team minutes in recent months, as he has battled injury problems as well as a Covid-19 diagnosis.
Pogba has started from the bench in United's past two matches, a loss at Istanbul Basaksehir and a win at Everton.
|Sports / Phil Neville Blasts Paul Pogba's ‘absolutely Disgraceful’ Role At Man Utd by GoalooNG1: 10:32am On Nov 09, 2020|
Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville believes it’s ‘absolutely disgraceful’ that Paul Pogba isn’t starting for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. The Frenchman was named on the bench for United’s 3-1 victory against Everton on Saturday and he only appeared as a late substitute at Goodison Park. The 27-year-old has been in and out of the side all season but he was dropped after giving away a sloppy penalty in a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal last Sunday. Pogba was bought a club record £89million but the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay have been keeping him out of the starting XI in recent weeks.
United’s win on Merseyside kept the pressure from boiling over for Solskjaer but Neville believes Pogba must be selected in the future if the Norwegian is to stand any chance of winning silverware.
‘I still think it’s absolutely disgraceful that Pogba can’t get in that team,’ Neville told Premier League Productions. ‘For United to win a league, for United to be successful, for United to play the style of football that Ole wants them to play then Pogba has to play. ‘You can play one of them [Nemanja] Matic, Fred or [Scott] McTominay and then you play Pogba with [Bruno] Fernandes. Asked whether Pogba can show enough discipline in a deeper role, Neville said: ‘Probably not no but I’d rather go out there and score goals, go out there and go for the win playing the Manchester United way with Pogba in the team. ‘I know I’ve said about him wanting to leave, not wanting to be there and his inconsistencies but I still think he’s one of the best midfielders around. That’s why I’m thinking: Why is Paul Pogba not in that team?’
|Sports / Argentine Division Already Started by GoalooNG1: 7:30am On Nov 09, 2020|
They win over Newells Old Boys at 3-1 in last game, which have set a good beginning of this new season. It has been a long time they have not play for a game. Undoubtedly they have well-prepared for the League.
They have played for Copa Sudamericana of Conmebol as traveller in last week, which makes a difference on their playing in the upcoming game. They lose to Boca Juniors as host in last game of the League. A two-match losing steak cause them in poor form and low morale.
|Sports / Man Utd Desired A Victory To Boost Morale, But Is Not Easy by GoalooNG1: 7:54am On Nov 07, 2020|
They have gone a run with a seven-match winning streak in the begging of the League. But they have been getting worse when their key players such as James Rodríguez suspend for injuries. They are sitting the fourth in the table of the League. It seems that they will not back to their great form until James Rodríguez recover.
They do not play steadily in recent games. It is out of expectation that they lose to Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyesi in UEFA Champions League. It has little effect on their points but great influence on their morale. They are the fifteenth in the table. If they do not struggle hard, they will possibly fight for relegation.
