WhoScored: Liverpool scoring woes solved?

Tactics And Analysis

The Ox not inhibited by stunning Sanchez

Uber-confident Real have designs on greatness

A warm morning greeted Real Madrid in Marrakech, for their first training session since qualifying for the FIFA Club World Cup final.

Cristiano Ronaldo's attempt to score against Cruz Azul at the Club World Cup with a rabona caused a bit of a stir in Mexico. Fox Sports commentator Raul Orvananos described the Real Madrid forward as a "clown" and although he issued an apology later (to Real fans, if not the player) he refused to alter his appraisal and went on to say that Ronaldo's trickery was tantamount to making fun of the Mexican side, who were 3-0 down at the time.

It's an opinion that Orvananos is not alone in holding:...

New Sterling role could spell end to Liverpool's attacking issues

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers hails Raheem Sterling's performance against Bournemouth

In the absence of the persistently injured Daniel Sturridge and the departed Luis Suarez, this season has been a struggle for Liverpool as manager Brendan Rodgers chops and changes from week to week in an effort to find a way of coping without last season's two best players. And while there is a pressing need to replace the goals they scored, his defence, too, are providing even greater cause for concern.

It hasn't really been clear at any stage of the season what kind of tactic or philosophy...

Spurs starting to build momentum at key point of season

Qatar Sports Investments are reportedly interested in acquiring a Premier League club.

Spurs have produced some good performances this season, but they've so far failed to string those displays together.

Having won two games on the bounce and with Burnley to come on Saturday, Tottenham have the chance to start putting a run of form together. If it happens, then the season could start to look very different.

Thanks to the fact that other sides have also been bumbling around, Mauricio Pochettino's team are still very much in the mix for a Champions League spot. With a Wembley appearance...

Alexis Sanchez may get the plaudits, but The Ox deserves the spotlight too

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has enjoyed a fine season at Arsenal while all the focus has been on Alexis Sanchez's impact.

In a season in which the most eye-catching performer has been Alexis Sanchez, only one Arsenal player has played in every league game so far: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

With 11 starts and five substitute appearances, the England man is the only ever present, although Alexis, Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker have all played just one game fewer. The record is in doubt ahead of Sunday's game at Liverpool, however, with Arsene Wenger reporting that Oxlade-Chamberlain faces a fitness test before a final...

Fantasy Preview: Week 17

Arsenal's Santi Cazorla, left, and Alexis Sanchez, right, could have a fantasy field day as the Gunners face a leaky Liverpool defence.

Manchester City (11-3-2) vs. Crystal Palace (3-6-7)

City's attack is further weakened with Edin Dzeko (6.8) out injured. Yaya Toure (10.0) and David Silva (8.1) are good fantasy picks.

Beyond Mile Jedinak (7.1), Palace have no fantasy players worth mentioning.

Aston Villa (5-4-7) vs. Manchester United (9-4-3)

Villa have Kieran Richardson (4.5) and Alan Hutton (5.8) suspended. Christian Benteke (7.2) is their offensive hope.

Manchester United, on a six-game winning streak,...

Indian Super League countdown: Atletico de Kolkata vs. Kerala Blasters

Kerala Blasters drew and beat Atletico de Kolkata in their two matches during the group stage, with the pair facing one final showdown to determine the ISL winner.

After 10 weeks, 60 matches and record crowds, India's experiment with organised, top level football comes to a close on Saturday when Atletico de Kolkata face Kerala Blasters in the final of the Indian Super League.

The tournament has already been heralded a success, increasing optimism that football will be able to spread its tentacles across this vast country of 1.2 billion people, which claims cricket as the genuine national sport. The football on display has been much better than anticipated,...
