‘I accept the pressure’: Ten Hag wary than Man United spending must bring results

Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag said he is aware that his club’s excessive spending in the close season transfer window means there is pressure to secure a top-four finish this term. United spent more than 200 million pounds ($240.92 million) to bring in Brazilian duo Antony and Casemiro from Ajax Amsterdam and Real Madrid respectively, Argentine World Cup winner Lisandro Martinez and Dutch full back Tyrell Malacia ahead of the current campaign. Ten Hag, who took over as coach from Ralf Rangnick in April, has revamped a squad looking to turn things around after their worst-ever Premier League points haul last term. United are fifth in the current standings, three points off the top four. “I accept how it is, I accept that pressure,” Ten Hag told a news conference. “But also for the...

Last-gasp Haaland penalty earns 10-man Man City dramatic win over Fulham

A stoppage-time penalty from substitute Erling Haaland earned 10-man Manchester City a dramatic 2-1 win over Fulham on Saturday, a victory that sent the champions back to the top of the Premier League. With leading goalscorer Haaland deemed fit enough only for the bench after missing the previous two City games through injury, Argentinean forward Julian Alvarez fired the home side into a 17th-minute lead. The champions thought they had quickly doubled their lead through John Stones but Rodri was offside in the build-up, and Fulham capitalised on that reprieve, going straight down the other end and winning a 26th-minute penalty.

Rashford header enough to earn Manchester United battling win over West Ham

A first-half header from Marcus Rashford, his 100th goal for Manchester United in all competitions, was enough to earn his side a 1-0 victory over West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday. After making a slow start to the match, United burst into life in the 38th minute when Rashford powered a bullet header into the net on the end of Christian Eriksen’s sublime cross to give the home side the lead. Veteran forward Cristiano Ronaldo, making just his third league start of the season, wasted a golden chance to double United’s lead early in the second half, firing wide from a good position, before West Ham upped the ante. The visitors piled on the pressure as the match wore on, but found United goalkeeper David de Gea in inspired form, twice called into action to deny West Ham substi...

Pep Guardiola says Liverpool fans threw coins at him

Pep Guardiola says coins were thrown at him during Manchester City’s 1-0 defeat at Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday. The City manager remonstrated angrily with a section of the Anfield crowd after Phil Foden saw a goal ruled out when VAR invited referee Anthony Taylor to review the pitchside monitor. Guardiola repeatedly gesticulated at fans in the immediate aftermath and later said coins were thrown in his direction. “Next time they will do it better,” he said in the post-match news conference. “They didn’t get me. They try it again next year. “All these coins, they tried, but didn’t get it. They got the coach years ago.” Guardiola was referring to an incident when Liverpool fans attacked City’s team bus ahead of a Champions League match in 2018. Asked if he had enticed a reac...

Newcastle frustrate Man Utd and misfiring Ronaldo

Manchester United and an unusually goal-shy Cristiano Ronaldo were unable to find a way past Newcastle United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday in a 0-0 draw that kept both teams in the top six. Showing a passion and solidity sometimes lacking from their hosts, Eddie Howe’s Newcastle had the best chance of the game with an extraordinary double header from Joelinton in the first half that came first off the crossbar then off the post. Newcastle’s Callum Wilson also had a strong penalty shout denied. Feted before the game for reaching 700 club goals in his career, Ronaldo twice had the ball in the back of the net. But he was offside for the first, while the second was disallowed when he cheekily nicked the ball off Newcastle to stroke the ball into the net after claiming a f...

Harry Kane on target as high-flying Tottenham beat Everton 2-0

Harry Kane’s second-half penalty on his 400th appearance for Tottenham Hotspur helped them to a 2-0 win over Everton to cement their place in the Premier League top four on Saturday. Everton had defended resolutely and wasted a couple of gilt-edged chances but when their goalkeeper Jordan Pickford brought down England team mate Kane just before the hour mark the striker made no mistake from the spot. Tottenham dominated after the break and Kane was then involved in a flowing move that ended with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg wrapping up the points in the 86th minute.

EPL: Ivan Toney strikes twice to give Brentford 2-0 win over Brighton | Football News – Times of India

LONDON: Brentford striker Ivan Toney scored with a deft backheel finish in the first half and added a penalty in the second to give his side a 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in their Friday night Premier League clash at the Gtech Community Stadium. The 26-year-old gave his hopes of being included in England's World Cup squad a considerable boost with a superb all-round display, capped off by two goals that took his tally to 55 in 100 games in all competitions for Brentford. The Brighton players warmed up in t-shirts dedicated to Zambian team mate Enock Mwepu, whose career came to an abrupt end this week after he was diagnosed with a hereditary heart condition. The visitors came close to taking the lead through Moises Caicedo in the 20th minute but goalkeeper David Raya tipped h...

Transfer Deadline day: Premier League clubs not finished after $2 billion outlay

A wild summer transfer window is coming to an end on Thursday with English Premier League clubs still very active in the market despite already spending more than $2 billion on new players. Already on deadline day, Brazil Winger Antony has joined Manchester United from Ajax for $95 million to take the club’s own spending in this window to nearly $240 million. Manchester City has bolstered its defensive options by bringing in Switzerland center back Manuel Akanji from Borussia Dortmund for $17.5 million. By the time the window shuts at 11 p.m. local time (2200 GMT), Chelsea and Liverpool are likely to have made last-day purchases to plug gaps in their squads while Nottingham Forest might even make it to a remarkable 20 signings since returning to the league.

‘Nightmare Start’: Man United loses 2-1 to Brighton in Ten Hag’s 1st Premier League game

New manager, same old problems for Manchester United. United slumped to a 2-1 loss against Brighton at Old Trafford on Sunday in Erik ten Hag’s first Premier League game in charge, dispelling any notion that the Dutch coach could provide an instant fix to the many issues that plagued the team last season. United looked vulnerable in defense — with Pascal Gross scoring twice in the first half to put Brighton in control — and toothless in attack until Cristiano Ronaldo came on early in the second half. And the questions about Ronaldo’s future at the club remain. Ten Hag decided to leave Ronaldo out of his starting lineup after the Portugal star only played 45 minutes in preseason amid reports he wants to leave for a Champions League club. But it’s clear why Ten Hag wants to keep the 37-y...

Jurgen Klopp calls on Liverpool to draw motivation from Premier League

Manager Jurgen Klopp urged his Liverpool side to use the disappointment of missing out on the Premier League and Champions League last season as motivation to challenge for both trophies in the new campaign. Liverpool won the League Cup and FA Cup last season, but were beaten 1-0 by Real Madrid in the Champions League final in May and lost the league title to Manchester City by one point. “Both teams (Liverpool and City) play an incredibly high level and one thing makes the difference, like one goal in the Champions League final for instance,” Klopp told reporters ahead of Liverpool’s Community Shield game against Manchester City. “That is part of the deal. That can happen at the end of the season with the points tally. It didn’t turn me crazy and it didn’t turn the players crazy either...
