Mane surpassed Ronaldo in the number of Premier League goals

Sadio Mane plays a hero to help Liverpool win Chelsea in the second round of the Premier League. The Senegal striker was the one who directly caused the opponent to play without people in the second half.

He broke the offside trap and accelerated to face Kepa forcing Christensen to use both hands to stop and receive a red card. After that, Mane scored both goals to help Liverpool win the second consecutive.

This stellar performance made Mane the third Liverpool player to double against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. Before that, only Steve McManaman (December 1995) and Philippe Coutinho (October 2015) did the same thing.

Mane surpassed Ronaldo to score more goals in the Premier League

Sadio Mane overcame Cristiano Ronaldo in Premier League goals by scoring a double for Liverpool against Chelsea.

Mane forced Christensen to foul from behind and received a red card

The double against Chelsea also helped Mane increase his Premier League scoring record to 86, surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo’s achievement at MU in the past. The two made 196 appearances, but Mane scored 2 more goals than the Portuguese senior.

Mane’s current record is on par with two other former Premier League players, Fernando Torres and Eden Hazard. Besides, Mane also leveled Torres’ Liverpool record when they both had 65 goals, ranking sixth in the club’s best strikers list in the Premier League.

Christensen received a red card for a foul

But the Senegal striker still has plenty of opportunities to increase his performance at the age of 28 and can play more years in the Premier League.

When Mane was just a goalkeeper in front of Kepa who went out of the box, the Senegal striker was embraced by Christensen from behind and fell into the field. Of course, Christensen had no chance to get the ball back in this situation. He reluctantly chose to make a foul.

Although referring to the VAR technology, it is not surprising that the Tierney referee draws a red card (instead of the previous yellow card) for the Danish defender for a foul in the situation where the opponent has a chance to score clear.

Liverpool enjoyed the free-kick in a very dangerous position but Trent Alexander-Arnold, who scored in both Premier League matches against Chelsea last season, could not make it difficult for Kepa.

Aubameyang extended his contract with Arsenal

The Gabon striker signed a new contract, with the Emirates team until 2023. Aubameyang has been the mainstay of Arsenal’s attack line in recent seasons.

On the evening of September 15, Arsenal’s home page posted notice of reaching an agreement to extend the contract with striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Gabon striker joined Arsenal in the transfer window in winter 2018. Up to now, he has 111 appearances and scored 72 goals in the colors of the Emirates Stadium. His first season in England, Aubameyang won the Premier League Golden Boot title with 22 goals. He still maintains his form and is the number one striker of “Gunners”.

Last season, Aubameyang had 29 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal. He scored twice against Chelsea in the FA Cup final, contributing to bringing the championship to teachers and coaches Arteta. He was also the owner of the goal against Liverpool before “Gunners” beat “The Kop” in the penalty shootout to win the Community Shield.

In the transfer window this summer, Aubameyang is pursued by many big clubs such as Barca, Real Madrid, Inter Milan … However, the Gabon striker decided to stay at the Emirates Stadium after a long period of negotiations on a new contract. Under Coach Arteta, Arsenal is expected to be revived to regain his status in the Premier League.

Refusing to Barca, captain striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signed a new three-year contract with Arsenal.

Aubameyang signed a three-year contract with Arsenal, until 2023

According to Sportsmail, the new contract of Aubameyang helps him receive a basic salary of 322,000 USD per week. Adding bonus terms based on achievements, Gabon striker can earn 483,000 USD a week. This money will help him become Arsenal’s highest-paid player, surpassing Mesut Ozil. Ozil currently receives $ 450,000 per week.

According to TalkSPORT, Aubameyang could receive $ 77 million in salary and bonus in the next three years of his contract with Arsenal. Arriving at Arsenal in January 2018 from Dortmund for a record 72 million USD, Aubameyang scored 72 goals in 111 games for “Gunners”.

De Bruyne overcame many teammates to win the PFA Player of the Year award

Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne became the first Man City player to be honored by the Professional Footballers Association of England (PFA).

De Bruyne won by overcoming teammate Raheem Sterling and four Liverpool players including Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Sadio Mane. The good news came to De Bruyne a few days after his wife gave birth to her third child.

Previously, De Bruyne also received the award for the best player in the Premier League 2019-2020.

De Bruyne missed most of the 2018-2019 season due to injury. But he came back strong. The Belgian international has caught up to the record 20 assists in the Premier League that Thierry Henry set 17 years ago. However, in the sublimation season De Bruyne, Man City only won the League Cup. They lost to Liverpool in the Premier League and were suddenly eliminated by Lyon in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

De Bruyne threatens Thierry Henry’s record

Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne wants to break the assist record in a season that Thierry Henry has set in the Premier League.

Henry’s record, the legendary Arsenal striker, was 20 assists in the 2002-2003 season. De Bruyne’s best, meanwhile, is 18 times the 2016-2017 season, equal to the achievements of Cesc Fabregas in the 2014-2015 season and Frank Lampard’s performance in the 2004-2005 season. Mesut Ozil interspersed with 19 passes in the 2015-2016 season.

De Bruyne is the expert in bringing the ball to a favorable position for his teammates to score.

This season, before the Premier League postponed due to Covid-19, De Bruyne had already owned 16 goals – three more than Henry’s record, while the season had nine rounds left.

In the situation that the Man City midfielder mentioned, the ball from his foot hit another player to change direction, before Raheem Sterling scored. That is why it does not count as an assist to De Bruyne – who won the King of assists in a Bundesliga season while at Wolfsburg.

De Bruyne has never won the Player of the Season award in England. When Man City won the Premier League the last three times, the players who won the individual titles all came from Liverpool: Luis Suarez, Mohamed Salah, and Virgil Van Dijk.

The weakness of Mercedes at the Grand Prix celebrating 70 years of F1 (Part 3)

Pirelli increases the minimum tire pressure to protect the tires from damaging external forces such as at the British Grand Prix. But when inflated, the tires get a little more bulky, reducing the contact area of ​​the tire. This change is difficult to see with the naked eye but has serious consequences for a sensitive machine like the F1 car.

The consequences were even greater when it happened on the W11 – a superior car. It was capable of reaching high speeds in the corners thanks to the power of the engine and the great amount of compression. This put the tires under the load far more than the competition.

The tire overheating is something Mercedes has also predicted before the race. But they predict that the problem will be mainly with the front tires, as at the British Grand Prix. So Mercedes tried to preserve the front tires by changing the set-ups. However, the reality on the track is completely different. This caused the German team to fire by asking the drivers to slow down to keep the rear tires.

So why is the same condition, the same situation impacts Mercedes more than Red Bull?

The decision to let Bottas have a second tire change right after Verstappen also seems like a bizarre one. This caused the Finnish racer to quickly fall behind. Bottas criticized the home team after the race. However, in general, Mercedes’ choice at that time was not to compete with Verstappen but to find a way to escape the pressure from Charles Leclerc, a Ferrari driver emerging as a threat thanks to 1-pit tactics.

Moreover, the most important factor that caused Bottas to be called into the pit earlier than Hamilton was that the directors were concerned about the vibration from the rear tires of the W11. Hamilton was not subjected to the same vibrations, allowing the British driver to extend his second set of tires. In fact, despite the prolonged use of the second set of tires, even using the 1-pit tactic, Mercedes is unlikely to beat Verstappen.

The weakness of Mercedes at the Grand Prix celebrating 70 years of F1 (Part 2)

At the British Grand Prix, both Mercedes cars had problems with the left front tire due to the physical wear of the tires, and over the weekend, the tires of the two W11s were overheated.

Blistering tires are hard to make Mercedes give up like at the British Grand Prix, but it makes the W11 unable to fully exert its inherent strength. There are three reasons why Mercedes has problems that are completely different from the incidents that took place at the British Grand Prix.

First, Pirelli brought the F1 70’s Grand Prix to three types of tires one level softer than the British Grand Prix. In the previous race, drivers used soft-grade C1-C2-C3 tires, and over the weekend Pirelli provided tires C2-C3-C4.

The second reason is higher tire pressure. To avoid a mass tire explosion like last week, at Silverstone over the weekend, Pirelli adjusted a minimum tire pressure level of 27 psi with the front tire, 22 psi with the rear tire. At the British Grand Prix, the minimum pressure level is only 25 psi with the front tire, 21 psi with the rear tire.

Finally, the track temperature at the Grand Prix is ​​70 years higher. Race temperatures at Silverstone averaged 38 degrees Celsius, but over the weekend it was 43 degrees Celsius.

The harshness of the Silverstone track

Because of the harshness of the Silverstone track, Pirelli uses a one-level softer tire to steer the cars towards a 2-pit strategy, creating appeal and avoiding loss of safety. Pirelli’s plan has worked flawlessly. However, the use of softer tires makes them more susceptible to overheating.

So, on the same track, on August 2, two Mercedes riders can accelerate, chase and take turns to set up the fastest-lap, and on August 9, they have to limit the speed to bring the car to a safe destination.

The phenomenon of tire blistering appeared on August 2, but on a smaller scale and mainly occurs in the front tire. But the three reasons mentioned above appear at the same time that makes W11’s weaknesses manifest on a high-speed track and hot climate.

The weakness of Mercedes at the Grand Prix celebrating 70 years of F1 (Part 1)

The past two races at Silverstone show that F1 cars are extremely sensitive machines.

The same car with a racer on the same Silverstone race for two completely different results. Mercedes finished first in comfort at the British Grand Prix on August 2. But the following week, they struggled again with Max Verstappen, even though the RB16 was completely inferior to the W11 at Silverstone the week before.

Has Verstappen accidentally pointed out the inherent weakness of the W11?

The capacity of the F1 car lies in two key factors: engine power and aerodynamic compression. However, while mastering both of these elements, teams must have a good understanding of how the tires work, in order to convert their potential power into a track result.

Without mastering the tires, no matter how strong the car is, it will not be able to perform well. As a result, teams spend a lot of time and money on field testing, carefully understanding how the tires work on the track to optimize the vehicle’s performance.

Basically, the two Red Bull and Mercedes cars have not changed in engine power – aerodynamics between the last two races at Silverstone. The ratings show that the distance between the W11 and the RB16 is about one second per lap.

This parameter was predicted early and demonstrated in previous races. But during the race at Silverstone on Aug. 9, a clear weakness was evident on the W11 as Mercedes was unable to translate its performance advantage into actual results on the track.

The longer the tire use time, the more the W11 tires will blister and quickly deteriorate. This has a significant impact on performance, so after just a few laps, Mercedes ordered both Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton to slow down to keep the tires.

But the tire problem at the F1 70 Grand Prix differs in essence from the breakdown at the British Grand Prix.

How did Liverpool receive the Cup amidst the COVID-19 pandemic?

Because of Covid-19, Liverpool had to follow the unprecedented rules of the Premier League after the match against Chelsea.

Without fans coming to celebrate at Anfield, Liverpool will hold a sound and light show on the occasion of returning to the English football throne after 30 years of waiting.

They have set up the stage in the stands and the players will stand scattered in this area during the ceremony. The rest of the yard will be turned off, followed by a light show, on the soundtrack of the song A Sky Full of Stars by Cold Play.

The pressure of Man Utd to win over Southampton in Premier League

With Manchester City attending the European Cup, Man Utd will have to win all four rounds to secure the top 4, from today’s match against Southampton.

If you have to choose the team that is most affected by the penalty of banning Man City from attending the European Cup, the name that appears first and only sure is Man Utd.

The reason is not only the “Red Devils” ranked fifth in most of the 2019-2020 season, meaning that you can automatically attend the Champions League if the opponent is penalized, but also by the completely opposite style of Ole’s teachers and students. Gunnar Solskjaer before and after the incident.

The situations

Before February 14, the time UEFA issued a notice to punish Man City. Meanwhile, Man Utd was in a series of bad matches. In the League Cup, they were knocked out of the semi-finals by Man City himself. In the English Premier League, “Reds” fans were severely eroded by a three-match winning streak. This included two embarrassing defeats with the same score 0-2 against Liverpool and Burnley.

Rio Ferdinand, after losing to Burnley, complained that the old team had nothing to justify poor performance. Paul Scholes even hinted that fans should forget this season, then wait for new recruits in the summer of 2020.

But then the penalty of Man City appeared. Three days later, Man Utd responded positively on the pitch. Despite controlling the ball 39% and finishing with half of Chelsea, Solskjaer’s teachers and opponents defeated 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Three full points helped Man Utd climb to seventh place, closing the gap with Chelsea ranked fourth to three points. Hope to participate in the Champions League in Old Trafford, because if the penalty of Man City upheld, ranked fifth “Reds” also return to Europe’s number one playground.

That belief was extended by Man Utd with a series of positive results after that. Along with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes and the return of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, the 20-time Premier League club is the best team in the fog after Covid-19. From the top 4 points six points before the penalty of Man City, they stand the opportunity to jump to third, the team ranked fourth by two points, if they beat Southampton.

Because Chelsea still has to meet the new Liverpool king. Leicester also has to face Tottenham and Man Utd in the remaining three rounds.
