Guillermo Ochoa to Liverpool Because Goalkeepers

er the summer, Liverpool repeatedly found themselves linked to two free agent goalkeepers, with rumours flying that they would sign either Victor Valdes or Guillermo Ochoa. In the end they signed neither, as Ochoa headed to Malaga and Valdes, still not fully recovered from his knee injury, is now set to join Manchester United.

With Valdes off the table, it was probably always inevitable that Liverpool would find themselves linked to another goalkeeper or three ahead of the January window. What's surprising is that one of the names they're now being linked to is Ochoa. Who signed a three-year deal to replace Willy Caballero at Malaga over the summer and is no longer a free agent.read the rest here

Arsenal injury worries deepen with Kieran Gibbs a doubt for the Burnley game



Kieran Gibbs has deepened Arsenal’s defensive injury crisis.

England left-back Gibbs damaged his hip at Sunderland last Saturday and Arsene Wenger says he is a doubt for the Burnley game tomorrow.

Gunners boss Wenger is already without centre-back Laurent Koscielny and right-back Mathieu Debuchy in defence and if Gibbs misses out too then it would leave the north Londoners desperately short.

Midfielder Jack Wilshere also suffered a knock before his suspension and there have been fears he could also sit out the Clarets' visit, but Wenger is hoping he will make it.the rest of the horror story for Arsenal fans here

Police fear drones could fly overhead during Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium
Police are on red alert at the prospect of drones flying overhead during Sunday’s Manchester derby.
Serbia’s Euro 2016 qualifier against bitter rivals Albania had to be abandoned earlier this month after a mass brawl following the landing of a drone carrying a political-motivated flag landed on the pitch.
But while that is the most high profile case of its kind this season, there has been an instance closer to home.



A man was arrested in a supermarket adjacent to the Etihad after flying a drone over the stadium as City thumped Tottenham 4-1 just a fortnight ago.
The sudden use of the flying devices around sporting arenas presents a fresh problem for Greater Manchester police, who will also have a helicopter on hand this weekend.
GMP are aware of the potentially growing problem and will arrest anyone found to be flying a device and instructed to land it immediately.
In the region of 400 officers are set to be deployed to ensure Manchester United’s trip to City passes without incident. read more here
