Thumbs up for Orlando Pirates. Liverpool can just look away.
R1.3 billion for one player? ⚽️
Barkley Responds To The Sun On The Pitch, Chelsea Rubbish Without Alonso, And Liverpool Manage To Not Concede A Set-Piece!
Well, well, well. Has that made things interesting? I mean, considering Jose is putting his eggs pretty much in the basket labelled Europa League, United's win at Old Trafford has to go down as a bit of a shock...
Sunderland Still Need To Win All Their Games To Stay Up As Conte Relishes And Laughs At Tottenham's Pursuit
Each week makes it look more likely that the top six will end in their current shape meaning doom and gloom for Arsene. At the bottom, it feels like Swansea and Hull City will play their own version of pass the parcel with that remaining relegation spot. It is too close to call, as ever.
Tottenham Should Aim For 'The Mentality Not To Throw Away Second Place This Time' As Chelsea Get Back On The Horse
Well, if the reward for international football is a bumper week of Premier League football then I apologise to international football for all the rude things I have called it recently. What a week of action we've had, with some twists and turns, some slap and tickle, and some expert displays of boosting footballers' confidence in public!
Today's theme is people in football who, well, really don't help themselves. Historically, you might consider Joey Barton to head up this list - on one hand, Joey craves being thought of as a football intellect.

Maybe, Just Maybe, International Football Will Get The Thing As England Fail To Realise They Are The Guests At A Work's Leaving Do
Anyway, the real stuff starts again next week and we can look forward to Chelsea grinding out another Premier League title, more tittle-tattle around Arsene and Jose putting all his eggs in a Europa League shaped basket.
Arsene's Plan To Not Defend Set Pieces Fails, Lallana Might Have Cost Liverpool The Champions League, And Alli In Penalty-Winning Shock
Let's start in an unexpected way today. Just imagine how bad Sunderland against Burnley must have been to watch. 0-0 must have been the most guaranteed result of the day. It's nice to see Jermain Defoe back in the England squad though, if only as a reward for putting up with only being passed the ball about 25 times this season.
Lincoln Embarrassed By Losing To Arsenal, Boro Need A New Plan And Kate Is Un-Abel To Finish The Match
It was a funny old weekend of football. Premier League matches alongside some juicy FA Cup Quarter Finals always dilute the attention and I am not sure we are any the wiser as a result. Mind you, it would take more than a game of football to make me wise, that is for sure.
