We take a look at three interesting hot topics in the world of football, from what happens on the pitch and off it
Ronaldo expecting another set of twins
News broke out on Thursday that five time Ballon D’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo is expecting yet another set of twins.
The former Real Madrid man posted on Instagram on Thursday and announced his expectations, many would wonder if that was why he’s been blanking for the millions of managers that have him as their captain in the FPL game.
Manchester United will face Tottenham this weekend in the premier league, will you still be backing Ronaldo to score? One quick question: Should Ronaldo have seen red for his moment of madness involving Curtis Jones in the game against Liverpool? If you ask me I’ll say yes!
Manchester City won’t win Carabao Cup this time
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City were probably trying to make Carabao Cup theirs or what do you expect after winning it four times in a row? But Westham had other ideas this time as they dumped the Cityzens out of the cup on Wednesday.
City couldn’t break the Hammers down and had to settle for penalties with golden boy Phil Foden seeing his effort saved by Alphonso Areola, Westham converted all of theirs and thus booked a place in the quarter finals where they would learn their opponents on Saturday.
Should Areola dethrone Lukas Fabianski as the Hammers’ number one? He has been fantastic every time he’s been called on, should be Polish goalkeeper be worried?
Where is the original La Liga table?
Have you seen the Spanish La Liga table of late? Do you want to quickly check or I should tell you what I think?
Real Madrid are the only familiar figure in the top four, in fact neither of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are in the top five, Diego Simeone’s side failed to beat Levante on Thursday to move up while Los Blancos also settled for a goalless draw on Wednesday against Osasuna.
Real Sociedad are on top of the log after yet another emphatic display over Celta Vigo on Thursday night, can they go all the way till the end? Wondering where Barcelona are? They’re down the ladder but with Xavi Hernandez on his way back to the club, it might be upward and forward from there.
