Jesus wept on last day of 2017 as Man City lose winning run – FCNaija

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

It was almost a perfect picture of what happened in the book of John 11:35 in the Christian bible, where Jesus wept, in what is the shortest passage in the Holy Book, as Gabriel Jesus, of Manchester City, wept, as he was replaced after suffering an injury in the goalless draw against Crystal Palace on Sunday, which brought to an end, the club’s Premier League record 18-game winning run.

The Brazilian attacker Jesus was visibly upset on the sidelines and had to be consoled by head coach Pep Guardiola, before Sergio Aguero replaced him in the 23rd minute.

Initial suspicions based on his reaction are it could be a cruciate knee injury, similar to those suffered by team-mates Benjamin Mendy and Ilkay Gundogan, which could mean he would be out for the rest of the season and possibly miss the World Cup.Football Prediktor

Jesus originally went down in pain just 11 minutes into the weekend’s clash, but decided to play on.

It soon became apparent, however, that he was not going to be able to continue, forcing City into the early change.

Meanwhile, another Manchester City player, Kevin De Bruyne, was also taken off injured in the closing minutes of the game after he was clattered by Jason Puncheon as City counterattacked following Luka Milivojevic’s saved penalty and his injury could also see him sidelined for a significant chunk of time.Football Prediktor

Transfer news: Arsenal launch surprise David Luiz move – FCNaija

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

Arsenal have reportedly launched a surprise move for Chelsea defender David Luiz who may have fallen out of favour with Antonio Conte.

The Express say Arsenal who have had concerns about their central defence all season are exploring the prospect bringing Luiz across town in January.

Football Prediktor

The Brazilian was dropped by Antonio Conte at the end of October but then picked up a knee injury which he is now back in training after recovering from.

The Blues believe he will be back to fitness in time for next week’s FA Cup third round tie against Norwich City but he still faces an uncertain future.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea would be willing to sell him to a Premier League rival in which case it could open up a switch to Italian giants Juventus.Football Prediktor

Cavani insists no rift with Neymar – FCNaija

Saturday, December 30th, 2017

While there are insinuations that all is not perfectly right in the relationship between PSG teammates, Edison Cavani and Brazillian superstar, Neymar, the former has claimed otherwise.

The searchlights have been on Cavani’s relationship with Neymar especially after the pair were embroiled in an on-pitch row over penalty-taking duties during PSG’s 2-0 win over Lyon in September, but the Uruguayan said there are no ill feelings between them as the episode has since been put behind.

“We have a great relationship,” Cavani said in an interview with The Telegraph.Football Prediktor

“We are very professional and our goal is teamwork and the club. Everyone was really happy when he [Neymar] signed because he’s such a great player and so it was a good thing for the club, for the team. It was incredibly exciting for all of us.

“The problem is that many people are not given the correct information and there is a lot of misunderstanding.”

Indeed, Cavani is not allowing himself to be distracted by off-the-pitch talks as he presently tops the Ligue 1 goalscoring charts with 19 as PSG enjoy a nine-point lead atop the table during the mid-season break.Football Prediktor
