This group also has Cincinnati and Columbus Crew which are considered the weaker sides in the pool. It thus means the Atlanta – NY Red Bulls match is a very important one for the sides, as far as topping the group is concerned. In their last competitive match, back in March, Atlanta United were 3-0 losers in the Champions League at the hands of Mexican side, América but they had opened their MLS campaign on a high, with two straight wins.
The Blues are reluctant to let Barkley leave on loan, insisting that the England international is still \"an important part of their first-team plans\".

However, this is not exactly the case. The Baggies are on a bizarre run of six league games without a win. They have tasted victory twice since the run began, both of those wins coming in FA Cup fixtures. These occasions have been respites from their league drama and reminders to fans (and players) that they can win.
Schubert made good saves from Goretzka and Lewandowski but could do nothing in the 45th minute when Goretzka headed the ball into the path of Mueller to add the second. It quickly got worse for the Royal Blues. Five minutes into the second half, Goretzka's header hit a defender, rebounded straight back and he reacted brilliantly to hook the ball in on the volley.
David Moyes returning to Everton after Marco Silva's sacking might be the \"step back that is required\" for the club, says ex-captain Leon Osman. Moyes, who spent 11 years at Everton before joining Manchester United, is among the favourites to replace Silva. Silva, 42, was sacked with Everton sitting 18th in the Premier League after three successive losses. People say David Moyes is a step back - I'd argue a step back is good for Everton at the moment,\" Osman said.

But, despite the physical realities of the surgery and rehabilitation that she has had to go through, it is the mental struggles that have been the biggest barrier to Welsh's recovery. She added: \"The physical side of the rehab is easy, it's the mental side which is the hard part and I don't think I'm totally over it – I don't have full confidence in going into challenges.
Can they really beat Klopp's Liverpool? Chelsea were beaten by Corinthians in the 2012 Club World Cup finalLatin American sides have previously come unstuck against less fancied opposition in the Club World Cup. For example, Ronaldinho's Atletico Mineiro going out to Raja Casablanca 3-1 in the 2013 semis. Having said that, an upset is not a ridiculous idea at all. In the Intercontinental Cup days, Liverpool were outclassed by Flamengo in 1981 and lost to Argentina's Independiente in 1984.
It was poor defending from City full back Benjamin Mendy that handed Wolves the equaliser with less than ten minutes remaining. The Frenchman in trying to usher the ball out for a goal kick was robbed by Traore, who zipped a low pass across the goal to Raul Jimenez, who slotted home.

They are fourth in the table, two places above Villarreal but their opponents can go ahead of them with a win this weekend.

They are in the final Champions League qualification position but 13 points behind league leaders Real Madrid.
Same old story for BournemouthWhile Mourinho or Alli will deservedly take the acclaim, this all had a touch of deja vu for Bournemouth, who arrived in London seeking to avoid their third straight defeat. Despite their attractive football, they once again struggled against one of the Premier League's established top-six teams. The Cherries have managed just two away victories in 26 games against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, both Manchester clubs and Tottenham - a miserable run that could have been made all the worse by a hammering here.
Arsenal have a potent striker in Aubameyang and there is a tempo and focus about their play that certainly has Arteta's stamp - he will still feel the pain of those lost points so late on. Satisfaction for RodgersLeicester may have slipped a place after occupying the top three for most of this season, but manager Brendan Rodgers will feel a measure of satisfaction after his side fought back to earn a point.
Sunday, no,\" Solskjaer told reporters when asked about Pogba's return. Spurs? I can't say now, because I've not been home and seen him, let's see where he's at when he comes back and starts training with us.

The Blades remain in the hunt for an unlikely Champions League place and hold a game in hand over their rivals. That means that despite being eighth in the table, Sheffield United can leapfrog the likes of two-points-ahead Man United and ultimately control their own destiny. A long way to go yet though.
