Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0 Sri Lankan Social Media Reaction

Manchester United 4 Chelsea 0

Manchester United beat Chelsea 4-0. Here’s how the Sri Lankan social media fans reacted during the match. It was the opening game of the season and both sets of fans were looking forward to it with wishful thinking. Few years back #MUNCHE was the top game of the season. Now both are fighting to get back into top 4. What a game to have as your first one of the season. #MUFC— Sameera (@sameera79) August 11, 2019 So who are the favorites before the game? On paper #MUFC has the better defense while #CHE has the better midfield. Devils has the better forward line mainly because of the Chelsea striker is an unknown quantity. #MUNCHE— Sameera (@sameera79) August 11, 2019

Copa America Qualification Scenarios

Copa america qualification scenarios

Group A Brazil and Peru are currently atop Group A with four points apiece and will meet in the final group game. Meanwhile, Venezuela are third on two points while Bolivia are dead-last with no points. The formula is simple for both Brazil and Peru: whoever wins in their match-up tops the group. In the event of a draw, Brazil will win the group due to a superior goal difference (+3 to +2). And if one team loses, there’s still a good chance they still finish as one of the top-two third-placed teams with four points already in the bag. Meanwhile, Venezuela — the current top third-placed team — would finish second if they beat Bolivia and either Peru or Brazil win. And if they beat

PSG’s five year 49-game winning run in domestic cup matches comes to an end

PSG eliminated guingamp

Paris Saint-Germain lost a domestic cup game for the first time in five years when they went down 2-1 to top-flight's bottom side Guingamp in the Coupe de la Ligue on Wednesday night. Neymar netted for PSG in the 63rd minute, who have won the trophy in the last five seasons. Having missed one earlier, Marcus Thuram - son of France legend Lilian - scored an injury-time penalty, adding to Yeni N'Gbakoto's 83rd minute spot-kick for a 2-1 comeback win. Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Marco Veratti were all booked in the dying seconds as the PSG players protested at not being awarded their own penalty when Veratti went down in the box. Guingamp's win was the shock result of

The controversial Harry Kane VAR penalty decision

sarri kane var penalty

Maurizio Sarri is convinced Harry Kane's VAR-approved winner in Tottenham's Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg victory over Chelsea should have been ruled out for offside - and believes he has the evidence to prove it. Kane was flagged offside as he ran onto a through ball in the first half before being upended by Chelsea 'keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. However, after consulting VAR - which judged Kane to be onside - referee Michael Oliver awarded a penalty to Spurs, which Kane converted. The image used by the referees to rule that as onside Sarri later claimed that Chelsea’s own images suggested the Tottenham striker was offside. “Kane was clearly offside. I watched the video from our camera,” the Chelsea manager

FPL GAMEWEEK 19 PICKS 2018/19

Fantasy Premier League Picks

Fantasy Premier League managers had a pretty weird time in Gameweek 18. There is no time to dwell on it though with the next deadline in a couple of day’s time. Let’s look ahead to the Boxing Day Fixtures. There are 3 standout fixtures this week. Tottenham vs Bournemouth is one that should excite FPL managers the most. Spurs thrashed Everton 6-2 away from home on Sunday and will be expected to win at home this week. Even though Bournemouth won on Saturday their recent form has been dismal. One would expect a comfortable win for Spurs. Harry Kane should be one of the strongest contenders for the armband this week.  Son Heung-min had a blinder at Goodison and is always a goal threat. He could be an excellent
