Football News Premier League Player Ratings: Manchester United 2-1 Leicester City

first_imgNew Delhi: Manchester United defeated Leicester City by 2-1 at the Old Trafford in the first game of the Premier League 2018-19 season. Jose Mourinho’s men opened the scoresheet as French superstar Paul Pogba calmly converted a penalty in the 2nd minute of the first half. Luke Shaw doubled up the tally, before Leicester City got one back through their prolific striker Jamie Vardy.ALSO READ: England vs India 2nd Test: Scorecard at stumps as Indian batsmen get humiliated by seam and swingUnited bagged the three points and this will give Mourinho a bit of relief after a topsy-turvy pre-season and his issue with the transfer window and club’s transfer policy.ALSO READ: India U20 football team returns home, welcomed by emphatic fansManchester United Player ratings vs Leicester City:David De Gea – 8The Spaniard pulled off some superb saves, especially the one from James Maddison in the first half.Matteo Darmian – 5A lackluster performance by the Italian as he made numerous errors defensively and didn’t offer anything attacking wise.Eric Bailly – 9The best defender on the pitch. The Ivorian was like a wall for United as he made some vital interceptions and was a leader from the back.Victor Lindelof – 7The Swedish definitely brought his World Cup form to his club and was alert throughout the match. He complimented Bailly perfectly and the duo could make a solid partnership for United.Luke Shaw – 8He looked like the old-inform left back from his Southampton days. Looked like he was waiting for this opportunity to prove his doubters wrong and wrapped up his performance with a good goal.Andreas Pereira – 7The youngster had a good match and provided some crucial passes going forward. He kept it neat and didn’t tinker much to show off his skills unnecessary.Paul Pogba – 7Converted a calm penalty early in the first half and was a commanding figure in the heart of the midfield. Although he became a little complacent as the game went on, overall a brilliant way to start off a season.Fred – 6The Brazilian had a decent debut for United as he kept his passes simple. However, he made some reckless tackles as the game went on, but a good debut for him.Juan Mata – 6Apart from that wasted chance to put United 2-0 in that situation, the Spaniard look tidy and was behind Shaw’s goal.Alexis Sanchez – 5Won the penalty for United and also created a superb chance for Lukaku, but he still lacks the X-factor which he had for Arsenal.Marcus Rashford – 4Looked cautious as the number 9, and lost possession quite a few times and didn’t offer much.SUBSTITUTIONSLukaku – 3Missed an open chance from a ball by Sanchez after coming on in the second half. Still not 100 per cent match fit.McTominay – 5Showed why he is rated so highly, was calm and precise with his passes after replacing Fred.Fellaini – N/ADid not offer much after coming late in the second half.

Colby Covington believes Dana White ‘absolutely’ wants him to lose UFC 245 title fight

first_imgLike @POTUS @realDonaldTrump always says: Promises made. Promises kept. Pleasure to finally meet you Mr. President. Thank you for always putting America first! #maga #GreatAmericanWinningMachine 🇺🇸— Colby Covington (@ColbyCovMMA) August 2, 2018But then the wheels came off the tracks in Covington’s mind. He says the UFC wanted to book him vs. then-170 pound champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 228 in September 2018 to determine an undisputed champion. Covington couldn’t take the fight due to having to have nasal surgery, and subsequently, the organization removed him as the interim titleholder. Then White said Covington turned fights with Usman and Woodley, which Covington has denied.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearLeading into his quest for the gold, which culminates at Saturday’s UFC 245 when he battles current titlist Kamaru Usman, the 31-year-old feels it’s been one lie after another from White that has him fed up to the point he’s lost respect for his boss and that he doesn’t want Covington to leave the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as the welterweight champion.”Absolutely, he doesn’t want me to win the belt,” Covington told Sporting News. “And l love it. That’s what drives me to be great and to keep the UFC great. “He’s treated me like s— so I’m going to treat him like s—. He’s also the same guy that stripped me of America’s title, the people’s title, for no reason. I went to the UFC doctors to get nose surgery. They wanted me to turn around from a five-round fight with Rafael dos Nachos (Anjos) with six weeks notice. I still get an assurance from him that I would fight the winner of Tyron Woodley-Darren Till. And after that fight, I get passed up again. He lies to me again. And that was when Marty Fake Usman got to fight Woodley. He comes up to me at that fight and tells me that I’ll fight the winner. I promise you that. But then I have to go through Robbie Lawler. They (the UFC) come up to me and tell me that I have no choice, and I have to fight Robbie Lawler or I’ll never get a title shot again and lock you into a contract.”I’m so sick of getting treated like this. I get all these unfulfilled promises and disrespect. I’m not going to respect people who disrespect me.”The UFC 245 main event is as personal as it gets. The words exchanged between Covington and Usman have been harsh, including an incident when they almost came to blows in a buffet line the day after Usman beat Woodley to capture the title at UFC 235. “As a person, I don’t like how fake he is,” Covington said. “He’s always lying to the media. He’s trying to say he’s from Nigeria. He was born in Dallas and went to college in Nebraska. Also, he’s trying to say he’s more American than me. Who is more American than me? My family served in the military. What’s his family served besides being in federal prison?” Covington enters UFC 245 as the underdog. It’s a role he doesn’t mind because he feels in his heart there’s no way Usman can beat him. And when ring announcer Bruce Buffer announces him as the new UFC welterweight champion, it’s not White that Covington wants to put the belt around his waist. It’s political activist Candace Owens.”Chaos” proceeds to send White a message if he refuses Covington’s request.”Dana White is not allowed to put that title around my waist, and he knows that,” Covington emphatically said. “After UFC 244 and the fight for the Bernie Sanders participation trophy, they had The Rock put the title around the waist of the Street Judas, Jorge Masvidal. If they do that, then I want Candace Owens to wrap the belt around my waist as she will be front row in attendance. If she doesn’t wrap the belt around my waist, then I feel bad for Dana White.” Things appeared to be right in the world between Colby Covington and UFC president Dana White in August 2018. Covington was coming off a dominant performance over Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225 to become the interim welterweight champion. He’s the type of guy White seems to like because he’s an excellent talker who can then back it up inside the Octagon.When you combine those factors, more than often not, it’s a license to print money. Covington looked to be well on his way to becoming one of the next big stars for the organization when he became the first UFC fighter to appear at the White House, meeting with President Donald Trump. last_img read more
