Talking points in the Premier League include Ronaldo vs. Solskjaer, Liverpool’s triumph, and Foden’s maturation.
Matthew Dunn, an Express Sport correspondent, examines the latest Premier League news.
On a weekend when the Premier League’s two top footballing teams put on their best performances, it became evident that the Premier League will be won by a person. Certainly if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Cristiano Ronaldo continue to cross wires under Sir Alex Ferguson’s watchful eye. But Mike Dean still gets a mention on a Saturday when he wasn’t even a referee, according to Express reporter Matthew Dunn.
As Liverpool and Manchester City demonstrated on Sunday – and, to be fair, City and Chelsea before them – the Premier League has some excellent teams this season.
And when it comes to razor-thin margins, it’ll all boil down to who has the most unique individual.
Mo Salah has evolved from a 30-goal-per-season goalscorer to a player with an eye for an assist and the ability to track back into an auxiliary right-back role when necessary.
His magnificent goal demonstrated that he may be unbeatable at times.
Salah, more than Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, or even Romelu Lukaku, has been the standout player of the season so far.
It will be difficult to keep him from receiving a Premier League winner’s medal.
Diego Maradona’s performance in El Clasico, at the age of 22 and a half, was so good that Real Madrid fans applauded him off the field.
Pele helped Santos to become the first Brazilian team to win the Copa Libertadores on Argentine soil when they were the same age.
Cristiano Ronaldo was on his way to achieving a one-of-a-kind clean sweep of the PFA and FWA player and young player of the year honors, while Lionel Messi won the Ballon D’Or for the first time by the largest voting margin in the competition’s history.
At the World Cup finals in Qatar, Phil Foden celebrates his 22nd birthday.
He stood out with Salah in the football exhibition at Anfield on Sunday, indicating that, injury permitting, he will be ready to help England win the tournament.
IS CRISTIANO RONALDO come to support or undercut Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?
Currently, the entire club feels like a puppet show, with Sir Alex Ferguson controlling far too many of the strings.
Every move Solskjaer makes in regards to Ronaldo is scrutinized. “Brinkwire Summary News” in its entirety.
