Southampton FC Poke Fun at Liverpool, Man United in New Video Game

You have probably already seen it, but in case you didn’t here’s a link to much more on the mobile game that Southampton FC created to launch their new kit for next season this past week.

Modeled in the 8-bit to 16-bit era of video games, a la Nintendo, Sega Genesis or Turbo Grafx 16, it is absolutely glorious and I highly encourage you to check it out. It’s a fun play, but it works on another level, when it comes to the “easter eggs” that the gamer encounters during the experience.

Arsenal FC Team News at Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal go into Sunday’s North London Derby with their Champions League hopes hanging by a thread, but they will be encouraged by the team news. The North London club were only able to pull off a draw against Leicester City and are now eight points behind fifth-placed Manchester United.

There are not many games left in the season, so getting a win against Spurs is extremely crucial. Tottenham go into the game on the back of a disappointing draw at Bournemouth.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Arsenal FC

It’s a north London derby unlike any of that we have seen in quite awhile; but not in a good way. At least we had the mini-feud between Jose Mourinho and one of the Arsenal’s official club social media accounts earlier this week to add intrigue and appeal to this one. Both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal FC have seen their UEFA Champions League dreams for next season all but dashed at this point.

Actually, both sides have quite a bit of work to do to even make it into the Europa League qualification zone. At least with Arsenal, the arrow is starting to point up, as they have played much better recently, but they certainly came out of the restart gates cold.

Manchester City Starting XI Prediction at Brighton & Hove Albion

Today was the day that Manchester City learned their draw in the UEFA Champions League, and that’s definitely the biggest news of the day surrounding the club. That competition is of course not until August though, and the second place side still has some less than meaningful Premier League fixtures to get through.

Up next is a trip to the Amex Stadium, where they’ll take on Brighton and Hove Albion. The host Seagulls will be without Colombian international and midfielder Steven Alzate due to a groin injury, while Jose Izquierdo (knee) remains a very long-term injury absentee.

Despite already clinching the title, Liverpool FC still have something to play for- the season points and title winning margin records. Both benchmarks are still very much in their grasp, if they’re fully interested.

Up next is a return to the fortress that is Anfield, to face a Burnley FC team that doesn’t really have too much to play for during the run-in.

Tottenham Hotspur Must Retain Tanguy Ndombele Past this Season

Tanguy Ndombele could be one of the most intriguing midfielders available in the transfer market ahead of the 2020-21 season. The French playmaker has not been able to settle at Tottenham as many expected, and several EPL predictions have suggested he could leave the club just one year after joining from Olympique Lyon.

FC Barcelona are reportedly keen in making a move for the 23-year-old. However, the Spurs would be making a huge mistake if they end up parting ways with Ndombele after not knowing for sure what they truly have in him.
