There’s a lot of news regarding Chelsea striker Diego Costa today. The mercurial, polarizing Premier League leading scorer (tied with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez) received a ridiculously lucrative offer from China, and that caused a row with Manager Antonio Conte and the coaching staff.

Thus resulting in Costa being forced to train alone, and away from his teammates. However, it appears now that the Spaniard will resume working out with the rest of his mates this week, and could feature in the next fixture against Hull City.

UPDATE: Reports from multiple media outlets all across the United Kingdom claim that Diego Costa trained on his own, and not with his team on Monday.

Howard Webb: Rooney Deserved Yellow, United Equalizer Offsides

howard webb

Overall, the Manchester United 1-1 draw with Liverpool wasn’t the best officiated match by referee Michael Oliver and his crew. You had this extremely aggressive challenge by Paul Pogba on Jordan Henderson that escaped booking.

So that’s a major blown call, but you had some other very questionable calls. Some felt that Wayne Rooney got away with some stuff while others believed Antonio Valencia was offsides on United’s lone goal, a scoring strike by Zlatan Ibrahimovic which tied him Chelsea’s Diego Costa and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez for the Premier League.

paul-pogback

When you’re the most expensive player in global football history, and you’re not performing anywhere close to the expectations that accompany such a designation, you’re going to be mocked.

Antagonized, trolled, ripped, criticized etc. whatever you want to call it. Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is having one of the worst games of his life (or at least he just completed a terrible half) having conceded an obvious hand ball penalty, which led to Liverpool converting the penalty kick and going up 1-0.

Jimmy Butler Dictates Bulls Fortunes; Rajon Rondo Called It

As Jimmy Butler goes, so do the Chicago Bulls, and Rajon Rondo called it back in July. While making his famous, or now perhaps infamous, “three alphas” comment Rondo followed up by saying “it’s Jimmy’s team.”

Rondo has accomplished a lot, and Dwyane Wade has accomplished more than the rest of the Bulls roster combined, but Butler is the true alpha dog of this team. Jimmy Butler scored 28 points in 39 minutes today to lead Chicago over the very lowly New Orleans Pelicans, as the team became revitalized.
