Portsmouth have long been a very strong team at Fratton Park, but they continue to be a much lesser side away from home. Kenny Jackett's men possess League 1's third-best home record this term, but they rank as just the 17th best team on the road. They've claimed just nine travelling points this term.
Liverpool need just two more victories to guarantee a first top-flight title triumph since 1990. But when is the earliest that Jurgen Klopp's side can be crowned Premier League champions for the first time?Sunday 21 JuneEverton v Liverpool (19:00 BST) Liverpool will definitely not win the title on this day. Manchester City's 3-0 victory over Arsenal on Wednesday meant Pep Guardiola's side held on to the trophy for a few more days and Everton breathed a sigh of relief as they avoided the possibility of seeing city rivals Liverpool winning the title at Goodison Park.
So what if they were the only players allowed to take a penalty? The glory, the surprise, the wild celebrations. Next goal winsIt didn't matter if you had been playing for six hours and the other team were 45-3 up; the \"next goal wins\" rule meant there was hope, drama and motivation until the very end. You threw the kitchen sink at it - there was nothing to lose. If you scored the next goal, the win was yours.
England manager Gareth Southgate believes his team will be seen as a threat to win Euro 2020 next summer. After a surprise run to the World Cup semi-finals in Russia last year, England are joint bookmakers favourites along with France to win the tournament. The Three Lions will play all three group games at Wembley, which will also host the semi-finals and final. We've gained some respect and people would view us as a threat, which certainly wasn't the case ahead of Russia,\" Southgate told BBC Sport.
I have that 100% - the fans have to believe what I'm saying. We are putting a strong plan together to do as much as we can in a short period and the league table doesn't lie. The top teams in certain areas are better than us. We know the challenge, it's really big and we're excited for what we have ahead of us. Midfielder Granit Xhaka, who came on as a half-time substitute, blamed his side's attitude for the defeat, which saw the Gunners fail to have a shot on target.
AaB and AGF will be meeting today and this game we have given this two teams to score an under of 4.5 total goals as looking at the last game this two teams have meet together they are not used of an over of 4.5 total goals and so this makes us to be very sure with this prediction
Relive Manchester United's goalless draw with WolvesA solid debut for FernandesWhile it could not be described as an explosive debut, Fernandes did enough to indicate he will improve United as an offensive threat. The former Sporting Lisbon man was eager to get on the ball, took the initiative at set-pieces and was not afraid to shoot. His first effort drifted wide as he shot from the angle. His second, from a central position, turned out to be the hosts' only first-half shot on target, which went straight at Patricio.
What are the new spending rules? Figures come from published 2017-18 accounts of each club company or group structure. New P&S rules introduced by the EFL from the 2016-17 season allow the majority of clubs £39m in losses over three seasons. If a team has recently been relegated from the Premier League, its limits will be larger - and there are other caveats that allow some clubs to spend beyond the £39m limit.
Real had lost three of their four games before the interruption and, although their overall play has generally been more convincing than Barcelona's, their lack of penalty-box precision could cost a title that should be there for the taking. One potentially significant factor is Real's temporary move away from the Bernabeu, which is undergoing reconstruction work. Instead, Zidane's men will host games at the 6,000 capacity Alfredo di Stefano Stadium, located within the club's training complex and normally used by the reserve team.
I'm very proud of what I achieved last year with Liverpool and Holland, and hopefully we can do that again this year. But that will be tough with those guys around here still. I never thought that I would be up for a Ballon d'Or until I was actually nominated. It shows a lot about how my career has been.
Even allowing for the enforced break because of the coronavirus pandemic it has been a campaign where Leeds have never really looked like repeating mistakes of previous seasons and they have not been outside the top two since November. They had seemed set to win promotion last season only for back-to-back defeats by Wigan and Brentford to leave them third behind Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United, before a dramatic 4-3 play-off semi-final defeat by Derby.
Dimitar Berbatov was named Bulgaria's footballer of the year a record seven timesAnd the wheels are already in motion to help realise those ambitions.

Those braving the 'Correct Score' market can try a 2-2 draw. Quite frankly, both teams are fancied to get going offensively. United have scored multiple goals on a regular basis at home, scoring exactly twice in two of their last four, though they're without a clean sheet during that time. City have had defensive problems on the road, but have scored regular goals, scoring exactly twice in two of their last four.
Blackpool get defeated at home in last round but still they are one of the best teams in the league at home and also they are much much better team then the Accrington so I expect from them tomorrow to bounce back with a victory and it should be much easier than the odds are saying because Blackpool is great in offense at home and in recent games they average 2 goals scored per game and on the other side,Accrington offense on the road is not good at all and it is very possible they Will not going to score tomorrow
I gave a simple pass to the striker. No-one had seen him so I just gave it to him between the defenders and he went and scored. That was the only game I played. For Roland Janssen, a Genk scout at the tournament, that one game was enough. Impressed with the teenager's work rate he invited Ndidi for a trial with the Belgian side. When I came to Belgium the coach was Alex McLeish and he was putting me at right-back and left-back,\" Ndidi continues.
UEFA had just one day before agreed with member associations to find ways of extending the season beyond the official June 30 finish. UEFA, the European Club Association and the European Leagues umbrella group sent a joint letter to members on Thursday saying it was of \"paramount importance\" that competitions, including domestic leagues, were decided on the field.
Up first though for Valencia is a trip to Benito Villamarin this weekend – a venue at which they have tasted success in each of the last two seasons including when drubbing Betis 3-6 in a thriller two years ago.
Any footballer really hates that nickname for him as he was such a class player and it slightly degrades how good he was. Crouch: “He had a huge influence on so many footballers so to call him Fat Ronaldo doesn’t do him justice. It’s like saying the Fat Attenborough. You have to have respect, I don’t care if you’re talking footballers or acting or nature programmes. Have some respect. This is one of the best players who has ever graced the game and we shouldn't disrespect him with that nickname just because there’s another Ronaldo [Cristiano] who is on another planet as well.
Morecambe will host Plymouth Argyle for this fixture of the league. I believe, the visitors are favorites in this match. Plymouth are more ambitious team in this season. Plymouth are currently on the 3rd place with 68 points. They probably want to stay in the race for higher range. Also, they have two consecutive victories. On the other hand Morecambe is one of the main outsiders in the league. They are currently on the 22th place with 32 points. Also, they are not convincing team lately. In previous game Morecambe lost 1-0 against Newport. I think, the visitors will try to pick up the victory on the opposite stadium.
