You can also ... He makes the point that on the pitch and off the pitch he's a completely different person. He was a decent footballer but that has not been enough to detract from the other part of his career. The headlines always scream 'the world's dirtiest player',"It was a forgivable preconception. Known as 'The General' and 'The Beast', Bedoya accumulated 45 red cards during a 20-year playing career - which ended in 2015 - with a further two dismissals arriving from the dugout since. And on Friday, manager Pep Guardiola said he was "so confident" of a successful appeal. But in the worst-case scenario, Cas will have found City deliberately cheated the system and the suspension will stand, shredding the club's reputation and keeping them out of European competition until 2022-23. There are plenty of shades of grey in between and the key points will be contained within the explanation for the verdict that will come with Cas' decision. He's not young Andy Carroll anymore, people are looking to him as an example. The more he plays, the more mobile he is and the better he'll get. He epitomises what it means to play for Newcastle. He'll not shirk anything and he leads from the front. If he stays well -- and thankfully with the training regime we've got he looks good -- he'll be great for us. People ask me sometimes 'How about the Premier League?' and I say 'Well actually I'd like to go to Australia'," the 56-year-old Valverde said at the Bilbao International Football Summit on Thursday. A career in football does not last forever and sometimes you think you have to take the opportunity to live in strange places. Sydney-born Milligan made his Australia debut against Liechtenstein in June 2006, having started his club career at Northern Spirit. He had spells at Sydney FC and Newcastle Jets before moving to Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in 2009. Mark Milligan has played 19 times for Southend since joining the club in the summerHe also spent time in Japan, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia as well as playing more than 100 games in two spells at Melbourne Victory between 2012 and 2018. Welcome to the next game in Taiwan. Here NTUPS and Ming Chuanface each other. The host is the favorite. Indirect comparison, they have not lost against today's guest in the last 6 games. They won 4 times. I expect that they will not prevail and they will not lose either. The guest is also in good shape. The bookmakers see a clear advantage for NTUPS but I don't share this opinion. Ming chuan won the last direct duel away at Tainan 1-0 a few weeks ago. At home, NTUPS has only lost twice in the last 26 games - they have never lost to Tainan! So I think this time a tough and tight game will be present. Montpellier extended their unbeaten streak to six games with a 4-2 victory over Amiens. It was an extremely pleasing victory for la Paillade as four different scorers saw them get past the Unicorns. It has carried them up to fourth and they'll be hoping to keep that momentum going as they travel to Dijon. Michel Der Zakarian's men have managed to find the right balance of attack and defence in recent weeks as they have twelve goals scored in their last six games with three clean sheets along the way. When the league took a break, Villarreal were on a poor run, with three straight losses but in the six matches after resumption, they have five wins and a draw. They have also improved massively in defence; in the last six matches, they have kept five clean sheets and go to this game on back to back clean sheets. There are two possible attitudes: keep out of it or use the power you have to improve things. That's what Fifa tried to do. Arteta has a great future'Frenchman Wenger landed the role with Fifa - his first job in football since leaving Arsenal after a near 22-year reign in May 2018 - in November. After he stepped down as Gunners boss, Unai Emery was at the helm for 18 months before being sacked and the club are now searching for a new manager, with Freddie Ljungberg in temporary charge. That has largely been due to a lack of goals, with Palace having the second-worst scoring record in the top flight, after bottom club Norwich. It has not helped that the contributions of both Wilfried Zaha and Serbia midfielder Luka Milivojevic have dropped off significantly this term. Both reached double figures in 2018-19 but have mustered just seven goals between them this time around. To underscore the point, Palace registered 13 efforts against Spurs, but just two were on target. Ryan Kent took it upon himself to do just that in the ninth minute, when he darted down the left and skipped past his marker and into the box before firing a left-footed shot at goal. It would have been a superb opener, if not for Nathan Baxter's strong save to parry it wide. Kent's directness should have galvanised Rangers but instead Gerrard's side were blunt in attack and spent much of the opening period threatening from distance. That took them to eight in the Bundesliga, five places and six points behind their opponents in this match, Borussia Dortmund. Hoffenheim desperately needed that victory as they had been beaten in three of their last four league games. All a bit disappointing considering they had won the previous five. MADRID, Feb 29 (Reuters) - Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has said his side are in a delicate situation as they prepare to host arch-rivals Barcelona in a La Liga title showdown on Sunday amid a downward spiral of results which has left their season in limbo. Zidane's side held a three-point lead over Barca at the top of the table two weeks ago but defeat by the Catalans would leave them five points behind them with 12 games remaining. Match statsCluj require a draw to guarantee their place in the knockout stages; they have never previously progressed from the group stage of a Champions League or Europa League campaign. This is the fourth meeting between Cluj and Celtic in all competitions this season. Celtic won the reverse Europa League fixture 2-0, while Cluj won 4-3 away after a 1-1 home draw in Champions League qualifying back in August. Leipzig will be confident going into the opening fixture of the second half of the season this Saturday. They will be hopeful of securing a comfortable three points from this game as they set their sights back on a Bundesliga title charge. In contrast, Peter Schmeichel won 11 major honours, including five league titles and a Champions League, during his eight years at United from 1991-99, when he made 398 appearances. In an interview for the club's matchday programme, United Review, Schmeichel says he would "hate to think what the league tables might have looked like" if De Gea had failed to reach the levels he did. De Gea's recent mistake against Tottenham drew stinging criticism from former United skipper Roy Keane. Speaking to television channel Sportmediaset, the Italian added: "We will try to get to the end of this championship [Serie A] because it is fairer and more correct after the many investments and sacrifices of our clubs. Coronavirus: How the virus has impacted sporting events around the worldCoronavirus: Wayne Rooney says footballers treated as "guinea pigs"Uefa has invited representatives of its 55 member associations to Tuesday's video conference meeting, with Euro 2020 due to take place from 12 June-12 July at venues across Europe. With the top-four door ajar, Spurs made a purposeful start as Son Heung-min saw an attempt stopped by Rui Patricio, but it did not take long for their early enthusiasm to pay off as Moura's fast feet and emphatic finish stunned Wolves. A second goal always appeared crucial for Mourinho's side, who had conceded at least two goals in five of their six games under the Portuguese prior to kick-off, as the energetic hosts dominated in possession and territory. Los Rojillos went behind 20 minutes in to a Marc Roja penalty, but overran Periquitos in the second half as Ruben Garcia, Avila and Moncayola all struck, before Roberto Torres put the gloss on the three points via the penalty spot in injury time. Defensively, Almeria's strength can be questioned, but there is no debate over which side is the best attacking unit in the division. Scorers of 39 goals in 22 matches, Almeria are easily Segunda's highest scorers, while they're also the top scorers at home, where they've notched a pleasing 19 times in ten matches. Odds of this season finishing: 0%. There's always next year, Liverpool. Empty Stadium Bingo The lack of sporting events has left us with some time on our hands.

Cesar Azpilicueta celebrated his 100th start as Chelsea captain with a 10th-minute strike and the visitors held on to that lead until the 84th minute, with Iranian Jahanbakhsh coming off the bench to spectacularly earn his side a point, firing home an incredible overhead kick. When I saw the ball, I just tried to hit it as hard as I could and the bicycle kick was the only option," he said. But the most important is the regularity in every match to make a difference. You have to analyse how you win every match. Middlesbrough manager Jonathan Woodgate:"Leeds are a really, really good team - the best in the Championship, without a doubt. But credit to my players. They kept going until the very end. PSG missed out on the Coupe de France title last season for the first time since 2014 and they'll be keen to return to the podium this year. They will most likely play a slightly weaker team than usual due to the opponents but with Herrera, Kehrer, Cavani and talented youngsters like Adil Aouchiche falling into this bracket, they will still be a force to contend with. However, due to Paris' defensive mishaps on the road and Lorient's current home form, we're backing the hosts to get on the scoresheet. Nevertheless, we are still expecting PSG to stroll this game 3-1. Lorient are probably a better team at defending than Monaco are, les Merlus have conceded 16 goals in 20 league games this season, and with the cup fever in the air and home crowd behind them they should be able to put up a fight but ultimately we see the capital club progressing to the next round. We’re confident that both teams will score this weekend and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1. Both teams head into the match in good form and Utrecht have been very strong at home while their guests have been impressive on the road, and we believe the pair will cancel each other out on Saturday. In the betting, 'Coventry to Win & Over 1.5 Goals' catches the eye. Having scored twice and outplayed their hosts in the reverse fixture, the hosts are backed to thrive at St. Andrew's. Bristol Rovers are making a habit of giving plenty away, conceding two more in three of their last four matches, while they're really struggling when it comes to being outshot and out-attacked in general, as we saw when the pair met at Memorial Stadium less than two weeks ago. He also told the Daily Mirror that top-flight sides like Manchester City should help out EFL clubs by providing loans that could be paid back over the next five to 10 years. I’m disappointed that something like that has not happened but there are talks between the Premier League, EFL and PFA so I hope something can be sorted - but it should be,” he said. Cue a last-gasp scramble for a striker. Manchester United were linked with a host of strikers in the January transfer window including, from left to right, Erling Braut Haaland, Edinson Cavani and Josh KingBy the final week of the January window, and with United otherwise engaged in their pursuit of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes, it appeared their options may run dry as Paris St-Germain's Edinson Cavani was rumoured to be heading elsewhere. In Portugal, Fernandes was the stand-out player for the last two seasons, winning the player of the year on each occasion, as well as the Portuguese Cup and the Portuguese League Cup twice with Sporting. He scored 39 goals and provided 28 assists - no player had more goal involvements - and his 239 chances created was 25 clear of the next best, Alex Telles of Porto. Fernandes has an altercation with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola on the last game before the league was stoppedSince the start of February until the season was stopped, United had won six games and drawn three, scored 22 goals and conceded just twice while keeping seven clean sheets. I think West Ham could upset the leaders. The Hammers are just outside of the relegation zone and this is very important match. There are no space for another defeat. I think West Ham play better since David Moyes took the team. However, the main reason for my pick is Liverpool. Manager Jurgen Klopp will be missing the key player Sadio Mane. The Senegal winger suffered a muscle injury against the Wolves. His absence is a huge handicap for the guests. Salah are out of form at the moment. I think the good results of Liverpool are mainly because of Mane. And another reason for my pick is the poor result in the FA Cup. As you probably know, Liverpool failed to beat Shrewsbury on Sunday. The key players were benched, but anyway. Poor result is a poor result. Sangju Sangmu will host Gwangju for this fixture of the league. Both teams are not very good teams in this league. Also, I think, both teams will have a very difficult task in this season. Of course, the hosts will try to capitalize advantage on their pitch. I think, this will not be an easy task for the hosts. Also, we have Gwangju who's is poor team at the start of the new campaign. They have two consecutive losses. In any case, the visitors have the motivation to break the poor series. I think, Gwangju will try to get a positive result on the opposite stadium. My pick - draw. The visitors score an average of 1.8 goals per away game and their hosts score an average of 1 goal per home game, which provides even more reason to back a 2-1 win for Woking this weekend. Woking have outperformed their hosts so far this season and have played much better on the road than they have in their own backyard, but having drawn three of their last six matches we had to go with a double chance bet instead of backing the visitors to win outright. In Spain, Elche and Girona are expected to meet for a La liga 2 match which will be held at Estadio Martinez Valero stadium, Elche city. In the table, Girona takes position 5 with 49 points after playing 33 matches while Elche takes position 8 with 47 points after playing 33 matches. There is a point difference of only 2 points. It was looking like it was going to be a disappointing festive period for QPR, though the boys from Loftus Road turned their gloom into cheer by beating Cardiff on New Year's Day, scoring no less than six goals in the process. If they can tighten up at the back and regain some sort of consistency, then there's no reason as to why the R's cannot surge up the table. We have to judge the situation. I would say after the international break, 100%. Whatever we can get before that we will see. Alisson, who has played 28 times for Liverpool this season, picked up the injury in training before Tuesday's 2-0 FA Cup fifth-round defeat at Chelsea. The Brazil international - the world's most expensive goalkeeper when he joined Liverpool from Roma in 2018 in a deal worth up to £66. Bologna grabbed only 1 point out of the last 3 league games before the league was postponed and at home they have struggled all season with only a 4-5-4 record so far. They also have a poor recent record against Juventus with all of the last 8 meetings ending in a defeat. In what should have been a calming yoga session, things became heated when Kamara reportedly would not stay quiet, prompting Mitrovic to step in. It proved to be the final straw for Kamara as he was shipped out on loan soon after. Ricardo Fuller and Andy Griffin clashed while at Stoke in 2008Fuller v Griffin, 2008Not quite a full on bust-up but a clash nonetheless, and a bit of an odd one too. It came during a game between Stoke and West Ham back in 2008. Utrecht vs RKC predictions for Sunday's match in the Eredivisie. High-flying Utrecht will be expecting a win on Sunday when they play host to bottom of the table RKC and it's hard to see the newly-promoted club adding to their one away point on Sunday.

Chelsea vs Leeds United LIVE – Joseph scores brace after 30 minutes ago — Live from Stamford Bridge as Chelsea look to put Sunday's Carabao Cup final disappointment at Wembley behind them as they host Leeds United ... More Emirates joy for PotterBrighton boss Graham Potter was making his first return to Arsenal since his Ostersunds team beat the Gunners in the Europa League in February 2018. Asked before the game whether he would be a Premier League manager if Ostersunds had not had a good run in Europe, Potter said: "Probably not. We all get to a certain point by doing something and everyone's path is different. Home side did not have enough power and luck to maintain two leading moments, against Jong AZ, and they have made point with 3:3 at the finish of the game. Team is now facing another tough rival, and should be able to make it as favorite on their home. Almere is not weaker than their rival, and even if new coach is not making big progress, squad is strong enough to make the spread at their home.
