Barca's Alba to Messi, City's Sane to Sterling among the most unstoppable combos in world football

Harry Winks scored with the final kick of the game to lead Tottenham past Fulham after losing Dele Alli to injury late on.
Lionel Messi and Jordi Alba combined once again vs. Leganes, showing again their unique understanding of one another.
Lionel Messi and Jordi Alba combined again vs. Leganes, once more showing their unique understanding of one another.

Do you ever get a sense of deja vu when watching football?

Not just when your side throws away a lead in stoppage time yet again, or loses another derby, or concedes to an ex-player for the third consecutive game.

But more literal deja vu -- when you watch a side scoring a goal they've scored again and again. Whether it's through a deliberate strategy, or because two players' natural characteristics fit together neatly, some teams have a very familiar type of goal. Here are four examples from...

Man United's win streak can't distract fans from Liverpool, Man City successes

It was 7 a.m. on the morning of Manchester United's home game against Arsenal in December when I was rudely awoken by my 7-year-old Manchester City-supporting nephew, Charlie. To my dismay, he's got a season ticket and goes to games with his father. My sister has failed in her duty to indoctrinate or convert him, like the rest of the family, to being a United fan.

"Uncle Andy," he said, waking me up. "If United lose tonight, you'll be 19 points behind City. Which is the same as last season,...

Paul Pogba's card game on a train with Man United teammates goes viral

Paul Pogba ended up shocking a soccer fan halfway around the world after taking a photo with the fan's parents.

What if your parents ended up spending a train journey with mega-famous soccer stars but had no idea who they were? Well, what follows is a beguiling yarn spun on Twitter by Nate Patrick, a FIFA 19 and E-sports commentator whose mother and father had the pleasure of bumping into a train full of Manchester United players.

To set the scene a little, Nate was obsessed with football while growing up in Australia but it's fair to suggest that his immediate family don't share his passion for the game....

Arsenal defeat exposes issues for Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea. PLUS: Real get revenge, Spurs' injury crisis

We gravitate towards simple explanations, so the reason Chelsea lost 2-0 away to Arsenal at the Emirates is simple: Maurizio Sarri played his two best players (N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard) out of position. Easy, right?

Wrong. For a start, Chelsea had no divine right to win at the Emirates, not when they were one place ahead of them in the table. Not when they'd actually beaten them just once in their seven previous encounters, and not when they hadn't played particularly well since long before...

Liverpool's James Milner sent off by his former teacher, now referee, Jon Moss

Mohamed Salah scored twice, including his 50th Premier League goal, to help Liverpool hold off Crystal Palace in a back-and-forth match at Anfield.

Little did we know when referee Jon Moss issued James Milner with a red card during Liverpool's win over Crystal Palace that the pair had a history that extended far back beyond their Premier League days.

It came to light after the incident that Moss and Milner have known each other for a long, long time as the former was actually the latter's PE teacher at junior school.

Sure enough, a photo soon emerged on social media showing Moss (left) in his role as coach of the Westbrook Lane Primary School...

Jose Mourinho shows why he's out of touch and out of a job at Man United

Jose Mourinho offered some interesting observations during his two-game stint as a pundit on BeIN Sports, but his advice to Arsenal manager Unai Emery that Mesut Ozil "needs a little bit of care and a little bit of love" to perform at his best was the one which would have had everyone at Manchester United rolling their eyes.

Self-awareness has never been one of Mourinho's strong points, but telling a rival manager that he needs be more aware of a player's feelings appears to be a classic case of...
