Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred showed why he’s being heavily linked with a move to Manchester City, amongst other clubs, by scoring an absolutely outrageous free-kick against Roma.

The Brazilian playmaker has been linked with Pep Guardiola’s side for several months now, and has also been mentioned in the press as a potential target for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.

But if the 24-year-old is being distracted by all of the speculation surrounding his future he definitely isn’t showing it, as the Roma players can vouch for.

Fred was in the Ukrainian side’s starting XI for tonight’s Champions League last-16 tie against the Serie A cracks in Donetsk, and it seems rather fitting that this marvellous strike from Fred ensured a 2-1 win for the home side:

Not too shabby at all, eh?

What do you think of the strike? And where would Fred benefit from playing the most – with City or United?

Lifelong Arsenal supporter Jack Whitehall has been causing mischief tonight at the Brit Awards – by brutally aiming a sly dig at Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Comedian Whitehall was presenting the plush event at London’s o2 Arena this evening and couldn’t resist having a pop at his team’s arch nemesis when Kane was introduced onto the stage to present an award.

The England striker was joined by American singer Camila Cabello but their appearance was slightly overshadowed by Whitehall’s opportunistic jibe – which he couldn’t even finish saying with a straight face:

Whitehall has never hidden his devotion to Arsenal, and we’ve told you previously about his attempts to take on club legend Thierry Henry in a Gunners-themed quiz.

He might’ve been smiling after taking his shot at Kane, but we’re willing to bet that he and his Spurs team-mates will have the last laugh when the season is done and dusted in May.

What do you think of the clip?

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea managed to conjure up an absolutely astonishing save against Sevilla this evening in the last-16 of the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho’s side are in Spain for the first-leg of their tie and started the match in a positive manner, with Romelu Lukaku going close in the opening stages.

The first 40 minutes of the match was a composed and controlled display from the Red Devils, but in the last five minutes of the first-half, everything seemed to tilt towards Sevilla’s favour.

The La Liga cracks could smell blood in the closing stages and swarmed forward in search of the opening goal.

And just before the referee’s half-time whistle, striker Luis Muriel thought he’d given his team a precious lead – only for de Gea to somehow keep the net from bulging:

Regardless of how often he manages to come up with world class stops like this, it doesn’t get any less impressive.

Surely he’s now the undisputed best goalkeeper in the world, eh?

Manchester United played in their first knockout match in the Champions League for four years tonight – but the club’s supporters seemed more interested in trolling rivals Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho’s side are in Seville for their last-16 first-leg against the La Liga cracks, and, remarkably, it’s first time they’ve made it beyond the competition’s group stage since the days of David Moyes’ tenure.

But rather than singing about Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata or Paul Pogba, the travelling Red Devils supporters couldn’t stop chanting about Wigan Athletic striker Will Grigg.

In case you’re not up to speed, Grigg scored the goal which knocked City out of the FA Cup on Monday night, ending the Sky Blues’ hopes of completing an unprecedented quadruple – and the United fans thought it only fair that they paid homage to the Northern Irish forward:

What do you think of the clip? Is it a bit embarrassing for United fans to be chanting about another team’s misfortune?

Liverpool‘s new away kit for next season has been leaked online and we reckon the eccentric design and colour scheme will leave the club’s supporters more than a little bit divided.

As we told you back in October, the ultra reliable kit website Footy Headlines broke the news that manufacturers New Balance had decided to go down the route of a bold pink and violet alternative strip for the 2018/19 season, and now a full-sized image of the shirt has appeared online via Joe.co.uk.

As you can see, the Liverpool crest, New Balance logo and the sponsor are all in electric pink detailing, with the body of the jersey a sort of grey violet colour:

If this image does indeed turn out to be the real deal, how do we think it’ll go down with the Liverpool faithful?

The Reds are no strangers to bold and bright away strips, but is this particular design perhaps a little bit too loud?

What do you think?

Former Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc has claimed he rather enjoyed his relationship with Rangers supporters during his time at Parkhead.

The Poland international, who turned 38 yesterday, spent five trophy-laden years with the Hoops between 2005 and 2010, and went on to become a cult hero to the club’s supporters after winning three SPL titles.

However, his popularity amongst the Celtic fans made him the pantomime villain with Rangers supporters, and he regularly made his feelings towards the Ibrox faithful known by making a number of gestures towards them.

Embed from Getty Images

But despite the animosity involved in the Old Firm match, and the white-hot atmosphere surrounding the fixture, Boruc insists he actually enjoyed his relationship with the Rangers fans, claiming the exchanges made him feel ‘alive’.

Speaking in the latest issue of Mundial Magazine, the Bournemouth shot-stopper explained: “I didn’t realise before I came to Celtic that there was a religious aspect to the rivalry, I didn’t expect it.

“But I did enjoy the relationship I had with the Rangers fans, to be honest, it kind of makes you feel alive, makes you feel like the things you’re doing makes them go insane. I did enjoy that.

“Those kind of games brought out the best in me. You didn’t have anything to lose in a way.

“You don’t worry about anything, you just try to live in the moment and make the best saves you can, and that’s what was always good about it.”

What do you make of Boruc’s comments? And would any Rangers followers out there admit to enjoying their experiences with the eccentric goalie?

Manchester United are playing one of the biggest matches of their campaign so far tonight – but the club’s supporters are already seriously underwhelmed before a single ball has been kicked.

The Red Devils are in Spain for the first-leg of their last-16 tie against Sevilla in the Champions League and Jose Mourinho will know just how important this competition is to United this season, given they’re way off the pace in the Premier League.

However, the Special One has made several surprise selections for the match, with Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Eric Bailly all starting on the bench.

Youngster Scott McTominay starts in midfield, and the out-of-form Chris Smalling keeps his place in the centre of defence – much to the dismay of supporters looking for a positive result:

What do you think of the line-up? Will Mourinho live to regret his decisions, or has he picked the correct players?

Adidas are set to take a stroll down an unfamiliar path this summer by releasing a range of Marvel superhero football kits, which young kids are sure to fall in love with.

With the world’s top clubs releasing their new kits this summer, and a World Cup being played in Russia, there are more than a few kits that fans all over the world will be desperate to own, and few probably banked on this sort of collection becoming available.

As highlighted by the lads over at the ultra reliable kit website Footy Headlines, Adidas will be releasing three strips in a few months’ time, paying tribute to some of the biggest names in the Marvel universe.

There’s a red and gold kit based on Iron Man,complete with ‘Stark’ on the back…

And there’s also a blue Spiderman-themed uniform, again, with ‘Parker’ on the reverse…

 

And our personal favourite is this green Hulk jersey, which looks like a sort of vintage retro Germany shirt…

We should point out that, for the time being at least, the special kits will only be available in kids sizes, but we reckon that’ll all change if there’s enough demand from adults.

What do you think of the designs? Would you buy them?

Sadio Mane copying his teammate’s goal celebrations is as funny as it sounds.

The Senegalese attacker has fit right in at Liverpool since joining the club from Southampton two years ago, scoring 13 goals in 29 games in his first season before hitting 12 in 28 so far this term.

He’s part of Jurgen Klopp’s ‘Fab Three’, consisting of Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Embed from Getty Images

And with that attacking trio in place, Liverpool have a real good chance of securing Champions League football again next season as well as getting success in the competition this term.

Mane certainly looks like he’s enjoying himself – and his recreation of his teammate’s celebrations shows how that’s true:

We hope Mane makes more of a habit of this going forward.

The attacker will be in action for the club against West Ham in the Premier League at the weekend before facing up against Newcastle a week later.

Both games should give him more opportunities to add to this celebration highlight reel.

Celtic travel to Russia this week to take on Zenit in the second leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.

And they’ll be hoping to do enough to build on their 1-0 victory from the first leg at Celtic Park last week.

Brendan Rodgers’ men put some insipid performances behind them to record that impressive victory, with Callum McGregor’s winner barely what they deserved from the match.

But now it’ll be a totally different challenge out in Russia – and Rodgers will have a big job on setting up his team to get a positive result.

Here, we predict who could start tomorrow night:

Why Kouassi?

Embed from Getty Images

We think Kouassi Eboue did enough in the first leg to justify getting a spot starting in the second leg. Of course, Charly Musonda was huge, setting up the winning goal after replacing the Ivorian midfielder, but the 1-0 advantage should only see Rodgers become more pragmatic with his approach – and Kouassi’s inclusion lends itself to that. He’s in great form and fully deserves to retain his spot.

Why No Sinclair?

Embed from Getty Images

He didn’t even get off the bench at home last week so that should given an indication of how Rodgers is feeling about his star man just now. There’s no doubt that Sinclair is a must-have in a game where Celtic will have the majority of the ball, but tomorrow won’t be that sort of game and Rodgers should prefer someone with more defensive quality. That’s why McGregor will defend off the left then look to move between the lines when in attack. Expect to see Sinclair off the bench though.

The rest of the team picks itself after last week’s great result. That’s something Celtic fans haven’t been able to expect much so far this season, but that consistency should help in a game that should be tight too.
