Seven Liverpool players who Jurgen Klopp could still decide to chop

It is a rebuilding process at Anfield this season for Jurgen Klopp, who was appointed three months ago, and Adam Lallana knows that the players must perform to the highest levels to ensure their futures are secure. While the likes of Alberto Moreno, James Milner, Philippe Coutinho and, recently, Roberto Firmino have been impressive under the German's leadership, others have failed to meet the standards Klopp will require to get Liverpool back into the Champions League.

It's now or never for Arsenal to bring the Premier League back to north London

The Premier League is widely renowned as one of the most competitive leagues in world football, but even by the standards set in England, clubs have been taken by surprise just how unpredictable the league is this year. Leicester City finished six points clear of the relegation zone last season in their first campaign back in the Premier League, yet find themselves top of the table on 38 points after 17 games this time around.

Nico Rosberg blames 'gust of wind' for title-defining error at US Grand Prix

Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg has blamed a gust of wind for allowing team-mate Lewis Hamilton to overtake him and win the Drivers' World Championship last weekend. It seemed Rosberg was going to halt Hamilton's march towards victory when he led the US Grand Prix with ten laps to go until a wide line allowed the Englishman to take the lead and secure his third F1 title, while the German missed out for a second consecutive season. "It was a gust of wind - a big one," Rosberg told reporters,

Sebastian Vettel hoping to upset Mercedes' dominance with second-placed finish

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel aims to beat Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg to second in the Drivers' Championship, after Lewis Hamilton secured the Formula One title at last week's race in Austin. The German is the only driver, other than the dominance of Mercedes' Hamilton and Rosberg, to win a Grand Prix this season and now hopes to pip his countryman to second, after the 30-year-old lost the title to his teammate last weekend.

Lleyton Hewitt will help troublesome Nick Kyrgios to success

Since breaking onto the scene as the teenager who sensationally knocked the world number one  at the time Rafael Nadal out of Wimbledon, Australian Nick Kyrgios has faced a number of on-court issues which have hindered his progress on the way to the peak of world tennis. However, fellow Australian and one-time Wimbledon winner Lleyton Hewitt has vowed to help the 20-year-old, having been appointed Australia captain for next year's Davis Cup which begins in March. Kyrgios was replaced by Bernar

This goalkeeper is statistically the best in the Premier League; one club will be fuming

It was an issue Arsenal struggled to solve for quite some time: when would they find a goalkeeper worthy of replacing David Seaman? Thankfully for the Gunners, Chelsea's decision to let Petr Cech go this summer has provided the answer. While the Blues are languishing 15th in the league, Arsenal are level on points with league leaders Manchester City in second. Much of that is down to the prowess of their Czech Republic international, who is statistically the best goalkeeper in England.

Sergio Perez looking forward to Mexican Grand Prix

In-form Force India driver Sergio Perez is looking forward to this weekend's Mexican Grand Prix which sees him race in front of his own fans for the first time. The 25-year-old has been worth his money this season and currently sits ninth in the Drivers' championship, ahead of teenage sensation Max Verstappen, McLaren's star duo Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button, plus 26 points ahead of teammate Nico Hulkenberg. Just a week on from his fifth-place finish in Austin at the US Grand Prix, Perez i

Lewis Hamilton not phased by Nico Rosberg's post-race reaction

World Champion Lewis Hamilton says talks are not required with Nico Rosberg after clashing with his Mercedes teammate at the start of the US Grand Prix in Austin. The 30-year-old secured his second consecutive world title at the weekend, partly thanks to Rosberg's error in lap 48 which gifted Hamilton the lead. And following the race, the German was spotted throwing his second place cap back at his teammate (watch below). Had the Brit failed to win, the race for the Championship would have bee

Carlo Ancelotti would face greater challenge than before should he become Chelsea manager

With Jose Mourinho's job on the line at Stamford Bridge, following Chelsea's abysmal run of form this season, Carlo Ancelotti has repeatedly been linked with a return to his former employers. Reports as per the Mirror suggest the 56-year-old is interested in a return to England and would consider an offer from the Blues, so long as it's a permanent deal. It was suggested the west London side would offer the Italian an interim role until the summer, however, his friends have said he would only

Spanish manager is Chelsea's ONLY post-Mourinho option

While Jose Mourinho ponders how to get Chelsea back to their title-challenging best, Roman Abramovich may be considering a managerial change, and Bayern Munich's Pep Guardiola is their only option. For the first time in the Portuguese boss's glamorous managerial career, Mourinho is struggling to find the answer to why the Blues' bid to retain the title has flopped, embarrassingly. Losing four of their nine league matches to date doesn't sound drastic, but to say Chelsea are ten points off leag

Africans in Europe: #1 Karim Bellarabi - Africa Football Shop

An important contribution from Bellarabi away to Copenhagen in the Champions League qualification round gave the German side an away advantage, before progressing to the UEFA Champions League group stages following a 4-0 home win. Germany youth player Bellarabi was born to a Ghanaian father and Moroccan mother in the capital of Berlin and is yet to decide which nation he will commit his international career to.

Cameroon: A Review

Cameroon have qualified for the World Cup more times than any other African nation, they have made the tournament on seven occasions. Their latest qualification came following a 4-1 play-off victory over Tunisia in November of last year. Their chances of doing the unthinkable in Brazil remain a distant dream, and escaping a group containing the hosts, Mexico and Croatia will be a major challenge in itself. The closest the Indomitable Lions have come to World Cup glory was back at Italia ‘90 whe
