Silva service lifts City“Right now, it’s Bernardo and 10 others,” Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said when asked about Bernardo Silva’s sublime display in the champions’ Community Shield win over Chelsea last weekend.Portugal midfielder Silva didn’t always start last term but he was a blur of energy and efficient passing in City’s engine room against Chelsea and Guardiola rewarded him with a place in Sunday’s 2-0 victory in their Premier League opener at Arsenal.Guardiola’s faith wasn’t misplaced as the 23-year-old once again produced a tireless performance and rarely misplaced a pass.The influential effort was capped in the 64th minute when Silva cleverly peeled away from his Arsenal marker to meet Benjamin Mendy’s cross with a fine finish that flashed past Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech.Still not so UnitedManchester United manager Jose Mourinho shows his frustration © AFP / Oli SCARFFDespite getting off to a winning start against Leicester on Friday, all is still not well at Manchester United between star midfielder Paul Pogba, manager Jose Mourinho and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.Mourinho named Pogba captain and hailed a “monster” performance after he took responsibility to open the scoring from the penalty spot.French World Cup winner Pogba, though, wasn’t so effusive in his praise for his boss, claiming “if you’re not happy, you cannot give your best” and that if he voiced his true feelings he would be fined.Meanwhile, Mourinho again let his frustration at not being backed by Woodward in the transfer market be known.Woodward is adamant Pogba is not for sale despite rumoured interest from Barcelona.But at the moment all three seem locked in an unhappy marriage ahead of a season that Mourinho himself has predicted will be a “difficult” one.Keita’s new kingdomLiverpool’s Naby Keita shone against West Ham © AFP / Oli SCARFFLiverpool have had to wait a year to get Naby Keita after sealing the deal to bring him from RB Leipzig 12 months ago, but on the evidence of a storming display from the Guinean in Sunday’s 4-0 thrashing of West Ham it’ll be worth the wait.Keita started the move for Liverpool’s opener and possessed the pace and skill to consistently drove through the heart of West Ham’s pedestrian midfield.Jurgen Klopp now has new found wealth of midfield options with Fabinho also joining from Monaco, Adam Lallana returning from injury and captain Jordan Henderson getting back to fitness after his exertions at the World Cup with England.Keita, though, could be the real difference maker in turning a 25-point deficit to champions Manchester City last season into a title challenge.Sarri’s Hazard warningChelsea’s Eden Hazard will take time to find his peak form © AFP / Oli SCARFFMaurizio Sarri admits Eden Hazard needs more time to get back to his very best despite an impressive 15-minute cameo as a substitute in Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Huddersfield.Hazard has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and only returned to training with Chelsea a week ago after helping Belgium finish third at the World Cup.The midfielder’s future may not be sorted out until August 31, when the transfer window closes in Spain.But his quality was there for all to see during his brief appearance on Saturday, with a fine run from midfield taking out several Huddersfield players before he slotted in Pedro to score Chelsea’s third goal.“I think that Eden in this moment cannot play for 90 minutes. He has to improve, to have training,” Sarri said.“I think the best thing is for him to play 15-20 minutes when the opponents probably are tired.”Spurs show steelMauricio Pochettino watches Harry Kane in action © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYTottenham may not have spent anything in the transfer market and had to play several of their stars who have just returned from well-earned breaks post the World Cup.But they coped easily enough with Newcastle in their 2-1 win at St James’ Park.Spurs are the only top tier team not to have made a signing since the end of last season and manager Mauricio Pochettino will need a tougher test than this to assess whether fatigue will be a telling factor for his squad this term.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva celebrates © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 12 – The Premier League is back, with the opening weekend producing impressive displays from title contenders Liverpool and champions Manchester City, while Manchester United and Chelsea also made winning starts.Here are five things we learned from the first weekend of the new top-flight campaign:
1 New Everton defender Brendan Galloway Everton have caused quite a stir in the transfer market this summer by splashing out a club record £28million on Romelu Lukaku, but one move which flew under the radar was the arrival of England Under-19 defender Brendan Galloway.The Toffees snapped up the 18-year-old, who has been likened to Rio Ferdinand, from MK Dons for an undisclosed fee. talkSPORT’s Talent Spotter has the latest on the youngster.Name: Brendan Joel Zibusiso GallowayDate of birth: 17 March, 1996Birthplace: ZimbabwePosition: Defender/midfielderInternational appearances: 3 (England U19)What’s the latest?Everton have moved quickly to land the promising defender from MK Dons for undisclosed fee and he will immediately link up with their Under-21 side. Galloway has signed a five-year deal at Goodison Park and made 17 promising appearances for Karl Robinson’s side last season.Did you know?1) Galloway was born in Zimbabwe and moved to England aged six, before linking up wih the MK Dons academy five years later and progressing through the ranks.2) The teenager became the Buckinghamshire club’s youngest ever first-team player at 15 years old, when he came off the bench to play against Nantwich Town in the FA Cup first round in November 2011.3) Since then Galloway has gone from strength to strength. He made his league debut a few months later and then enjoyed a breakthrough year last season, making 13 appearances and scoring his first goal in a 4-1 FA Cup win over Halifax Town.4) The defender has risen through the international ranks at speed too, and has made three appearances during England’s qualification campaign for the 2014 UEFA Under-19 Championship.5) Galloway upset MK Dons boss Karl Robinson when he handed in a transfer request back in June. The manager said: “Obviously I’m very disappointed in his advisors and I think he has been advised wrongly. I’m absolutely gutted. I feel hurt and let down – I gave him his debut and I stood by him even in the context of him being sent off against Rotherham, but I will continue to be there for Brendan. I’m really disappointed in how this materialised but it’s the way the industry works.”He says:“It means an awful lot to me coming to such a great club. I’m now looking forward to learning off some of the more senior players – the likes of Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka. Long-term, I also want to get in the Everton team and play week in and week out in the Premier League and play in a team that’s doing well, which I know we will do.” Galloway after signing for EvertonThey say:“I do believe Brendan can be as good as he wants to be and I wish him all the luck in the world. He’s going to a fantastic football club in Everton that will only aid his development.” MK Dons boss Karl Robinson on Galloway’s moveEverton fans, what do you make of signing Galloway? Comment below.
0Shares0000The starting team line up before Harambee Stars took on Sudan in an Olympic Qualification match at the Kasarani Stadium on March 26, 2019NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 27 – Harambee Stars Under-23 head coach Francis Kimanzi has asked the Football Kenya Federation to maintain the team even after their exit from the U23 African Cup of Nations qualifiers on Tuesday.The team lost 2-0 on aggregate to Sudan to exit the AFCON qualification process, but Kimanzi believes with the immense potential in the team it should be maintained as a feeder for the senior national team. “We are available if need be and also it depends on the program from the federation. If they have a program or matches they can play we can keep trying to make them better because they need more time together because as you know this is the first time we have such a team,” Kimanzi told Capital Sport.He added; “They need more exposure with more test matches and tournaments they could get. We have important and special players there who we need to keep together.”Harambee Stars Under-23 coach Francis Kimanzi issues instructions during in an Olympic Qualification match against Sudan at the Kasarani Stadium on March 26, 2019. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaKimanzi was handed over the reins in the team last year when they went on a tour of friendly matches in Uzbekistan winning one and drawing the other.Meanwhile, Kimanzi looks back at the team’s exit from the run-in to the AFCON U23 and he admits his players were nervous and failed to keep their calm when it mattered the most.The Emerging Stars needed to win the game by a margin of more than three goals to advance or at worse win 2-0 to force the game to penalties, something they failed to do.“We had a lot of chances to knock in the net, but we have to accept the result. There is no replay and it is over for us. To open up the game you need to score. We had the opportunity to do that in the first half but we missed lots of chances,” a dejected Kimanzi said.Harambee Stars Under-23 players during in an Olympic Qualification match against Sudan at the Kasarani Stadium on March 26, 2019.“You don’t deserve to go through if you can’t open up the game,”We had a group of youngsters playing together and there is the urge to make things work and I thought we were too much in a hurry. For example Shambi (Ibrahim) was our best player but at times in every situation he wanted to hurry things up,”“We were looking for goals but every time you have an opportunity and think it is now but sometimes it is too far,” Kimani further explained.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)
