MONEY MARKETS-U.S. rate-cut bets slip after Trump shelves tariffs on Mexico

(Updates market action, adds graphic)

NEW YORK, June 10 ( ) – U.S. interest rate futures fell on Monday after U.S. President Donald Trump late Friday suspended a 5% tariff on Mexican tariffs as Mexico agreed to expand a program to stem the flow of illegal Central American migrants.

Still interest-rate traders’ expectations of multiple rate cuts in 2019, starting as early as July, remained high because of elevated trade tensions between Washington and Beijing.

Disappointing economic data last week, in particular a sharp deceleration in domestic jobs growth in May, increased conviction among traders that Fed policymakers will need to lower key lending rates soon to preserve the current economi上海夜生活c expansion, which this summer would be longest on record.

At 10:05 a.m. (1405 GMT), federal funds futures implied traders saw a 19% chance the U.S. central bank would lower key borrowing costs by a quarter point to 2.00%-2.25% at its June 18-19 meeting, down from a 25% probability late on Friday, according to CME Group’s FedWatch program.

Fed funds contracts suggested traders priced in about a 48% chance the Fed would reduce the overnight costs for banks to borrow reserves from each other by 75 basis points at year-end. This compared with a 54% likelihood late Friday, the FedWatch tool showed.

Obama officials work against time to wrap banking rules

WASHINGTON ( ) – U.S. officials are striving to put finishing touches on a slew of banking rules before President Barack Obama leaves office and hands regulatory power to Donald Trump who has vowed to rewrite the existing financial rule book.

President-elect Trump will take over on Jan. 20 and his fellow Republicans will have control of Congress and government agencies, allowing the new administration to block or roll back many of the last-minute changes.

But by completing far-advanced work on some banking standards in the next 10 weeks, Obama officials would raising the chances that some elements of the regulatory framework will survive.

Some rules are meant to flesh out the Dodd Frank Act of 2010 designed to prevent the next global financial crisis. Trump campaigned on a pledge to scrap the law but now he says only some provisions must go to lighten the regulatory burden.

The Federal Reserve is working on rules to govern matters such as executive pay, market stability and what investments Wall Street may hold.

Last month, Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Mary Jo White said her agency would “in the near term” finish a rule on one thorny issue: how mutual funds manage derivatives.

The SEC and ban上海夜网k regulators have also for years struggled to finalize a rule that would tie more banker pay to the long-term health of their firms rather than short-term performance of Wall Street firms.

With only about 40 working days until the handover, it is not clear which, if any, of those standards will get across the finishing line.

“Just look at the calendar,” said Tom Quaadman of the Chamber of Commerce. “These are intricate rules and there’s not much time.”

The executive pay rule exemplifies the challenge.

Six federal agencies have a say on the compensation standard meant as part of Dodd Frank and a final draft has not yet been offered, industry officials told .

It would be nearly impossible to circulate a final rule and get the agencies to endorse it while still satisfying standards for clearing such paperwork, several lobbyists who have opposed the rule said.

Banking regulators declined to comment on when the compensation rule might be completed.

NO TIME TO CHAT

Simple logistics also pose a challenge.

New federal rules come into force once they have been published in the Federal Register and employees there typically need several days to typeset a rule.

That means Obama officials need to lodge paperwork with the Federal Register at the beginning of the inauguration week at the latest.

Some sixteen copy editors are due to forego leave and be on hand in the coming weeks to process final rules expected from dozens of agencies, said an official familiar with the operation, but not authorized to speak to the media.

“These days, people do not spend a lot of time hanging around the coffee maker,” he said.

Some freshly-minted rules also face the prospect of getting erased under a 1996 law known as the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to block a regulation within 60 working days of being drafted.

One such rule allows students who were defrauded by for-profit colleges to seek loan forgiveness. The Department of Education finalized it days before the Nov. 8 election, meaning Republicans who have raised objections to it will have a chance to block it.

President George W. Bush was the first to trigger the Review Act when he block labor regulations that his predecessor Bill Clinton had enacted at the end of his term.

Binance hackers shift stolen bitcoin, identity still unclear: researchers

LONDON ( ) – Hackers who stole bitcoin worth over $40 million from the major Binance cryptocurrency exchange have moved the tainted coins to a number of digital wallets, researchers said on Thursday, potentially throwing up clues to those behind the heist.

Binance, one of the world’s biggest exchanges, said on Wednesday that hackers had stolen around 7,000 bitcoin through phishing and viruses, the latest in a string of cryptocurrency thefts to hit exchanges across the world.

According to London-based blockchain analytics company Coinfirm, the hackers have moved the stolen bitcoin through several digital walle上海夜生活ts, with almost all the coins now sitting in seven digital addresses.

Theft remains a major problem for the emerging cryptocurrency sector, with high profile hacks alarming regulators and raising questions for larger investors over whether digital coins can be safely stored and traded.

Losses of digital coins from hacks and fraud hit $1.2 billion between January and March, around 70 percent of the level for all of 2018.

Although the movement of cryptocurrencies can be traced, the identity and location of the hackers or owners of the wallets holding the stolen coins is unknown, Coinfirm said.

Still, the findings may offer clues to the identity of the hackers.

To convert bitcoin to traditional money, hackers would have to move the stolen coins to a cryptocurrency exchange, which usually require details of account holders’ identities. But such checks are, in reality, far from watertight, said Pawel Alexsander, Coinfirm’s chief information officer.

QUICK RESPONSE

“Exchanges are obliged to have KYC (know-your-customer) processes in place. In practice, many of them do not do this properly,” he said. “People can open fake accounts, and deposit the funds to that account.”

Binance, which is based in Malta but has over 400 workers spread across more than 40 countries, was the highest profile exchange to be hit since hackers stole cryptocurrency worth $530 million dollars from the Tokyo-based Coincheck in January 2018.

A Binance spokeswoman did not immediately respond to calls and messages seeking comment.

Cryptocurrency markets have largely shrugged off the Binance hack, with bitcoin last up 1 percent at around $6,000, its highest since mid-November.

Analysts and traders said that was down to Binance’s relatively quick response to the hack. CEO Changpeng Zhao said in a website post on Wednesday that the company would use a fund to cover users’ losses.

Coinfirm has 130 clients across the world in the cryptocurrency sector and traditional finance, from wallet providers to exchanges, as well as one of Japan’s three megabanks.

SQM receives Chile’s approval for lithium plant expansion

SANTIAGO ( ) – Chilean lithium miner SQM on Thursday received environmental approval to expand its lithium carbonate production plant, the local environmental regulator told , marking a milestone as the company seeks to boost output of the coveted ultralight battery metal.

The $400 million plant expansion, once complete, would allow the Chinese-backed SQM to eventually produce as much as 180,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate a year from its Atacama salt flat operations in Chile.

SQM is the world’s number two producer of lithium, a key component in the batteries that power electric vehicles, cell phones and other consumer goods. China’s Tianqi Lithium Corp bought a stake in the firm last year.

SQM CEO Ricard上海夜生活论坛o Ramos earlier this week said he expected the expansion, if approved, would come online “in the future,” but did not specify a date.

SQM has previously said it hopes to be able to produce 120,000 tonnes annually by 2020, nearly double its current capacity of 70,000 tonnes.

Water has become a key sticking point for the expansion plans of both SQM and top competitor Albemarle, both of which operate in the Atacama desert, the world’s driest. Soaring lithium demand has raised questions about whether the Atacama salt flat can support current and future levels of production.

SQM vice president Alejandro Bucher said in a statement that he believed the plant expansion approved on Thursday would contribute to sustainable development of the region.

“One of the most relevant benefits of this project is the optimization of water use for production,” Bucher said.

Only way is down: strong bid for negative-yielding KfW bond amid rates stasis

* German banks sells 5 bln euros of bonds at -0.267 pct yield

* Euro zone lenders, foreign central banks among buyers

* Deal paves way for other borrowers to do same

By Abhinav Ramnarayan

LONDON, March 15 ( ) – German development bank KfW’s 5 billion euro debt sale, at one of the most deeply negative yields on record for such a deal, is a clear sign investors are resigned to several more years of low interest rates in the euro zone, bankers and analysts said.

Triple-A-rated KfW, whose debt is guaranteed by the German government and often seen as a proxy for German Bunds, sold 5 billion euros of three-year bonds via a syndicate of banks on Tuesday at a yield of minus 0.267 percent.

Negative yields have been a feature of the euro zone bond market since the European Central Bank began stimulus measures to aid the bloc’s recovery from the debt crisis of 2010-2012.

But the KfW deal is one of very few benchmark-sized transactions to price at such a deeply negative level.

“Nobody really expects rising rates, given the statements by the ECB and (U.S. Federal Reserve) and given the economic data we currently get,” said Petra Wehlert, head of capital markets at KfW. “Investors live with what they get, and they feel comfortable enough to buy into negative rates at the short end (of the yield curve).

“Investors have to manage their cash, and if there is no change in environment, the risk is limited. KfW bonds are a Bund surrogate, and portfolio managers need to buy liquid securities,” she added, while acknowledging that demand had exceeded KfW’s expectations.

Comparable examples such as the European Investment Bank’s 5 billion euro three-year deal in January 2016 came at the height of the ECB’s now-terminated asset purchase scheme — and yet the yield on that deal was much higher, at minus 0.147 percent.

The fact that KfW was able to price at such a deeply negative yield even after new asset purchases ceased seems to confirm that investors expect the euro zone economy to flat-line for years to come, and that the ECB will be unable to hike rates meaningfully for the foreseeable future.

FEW ALTERNATIVES

Mark Byrne, a syndicate official at TD Securities, which managed the deal alongside BNP Paribas and JP Morgan, said the ECB’s deposit rate of minus 0.40 percent was a clear incentive for banks to invest in such a bond.

But it was not the only reason for the demand, he said: “Not all investors have access to this (deposit facility) — central banks, asset managers and some non-euro zone banks for example. So you must look at their alternative investments.”

He cited the example of three-year German Bunds, trading around minus 0.53 percent, and three-year French government bonds — with a lower credit rating than KfW — trading at minus 0.376 percent.

“So it makes sense (to buy KfW’s bond) if you are a global central bank that needs to hold euros as part of your portfolio,” Byrne said.

As a result, the two biggest types of investor in KfW’s deal were banks, who took 38 percent of the 5 billion euros sold, and central banks, who took 35 percent.

For banks, the deposit rate is a powerful incentive — paying 26 basis points to hold KfW’s 上海夜网debt could be seen as an improvement on paying 40 bps to hold cash at the ECB. Both count towards the regulatory requirement that lenders hold a proportion of assets in liquid and highly rated instruments.

“The high demand from the banks as a sector overall often has to do with regulatory demand,” said Commerzbank rates strategist Rainer Guntermann. “Most investors also suspect the ECB will take some of the supply in the coming weeks.”

U.S. firm FIS buys Worldpay for $35 billion in payments deal bonanza

( ) – Fidelity National Information Services Inc (FIS) said on Monday it has agreed to buy Worldpay for about $35 billion, with the U.S. financial services provider striking the biggest deal to date in the fast-growing electronic payments industry.

The financial technology sector is consolidating fast, with global payments set to reach $3 trillion a year in revenue by 2023 as more people switch from cash to digital payments for online and high street sales, consulting firm McKinsey predicts.

“Scale matters in our rapidly changing industry,” said FIS Chief Executive Gary Norcross, who will lead the combined powerhouse in banking a上海夜网nd payments infrastructure.

Growth in payment systems has kept deals rolling even as merger moves in other sectors have stalled on concerns about trade tensions and a global economic slowdown.

The FIS deal, valuing Worldpay at about $43 billion including debt, comes a little more than a year after U.S. firm Vantiv paid $10.63 billion for the payments firm, which was set up in Britain and spun off from Royal Bank of Scotland in 2010.

And in January, U.S.-based Fiserv Inc bought payment processor First Data Corp for $22 billion, while Italy’s Nexi plans to list in what could be one of Europe’s biggest initial public offerings (IPOs) this year.

FIS and Worldpay combined will have annual revenue of about $12 billion and adjusted core earnings of about $5 billion.

“Vantiv had yet to realize all the synergies from the Worldpay merger but FIS’s offer was too good to be refused,” a source close to the deal said.

Shares in Worldpay, which has provided payment processing services for more than 40 years, closed 9.9 percent higher and Fidelity’s edged down 0.7 percent.

“Parking the two companies together gives the enlarged business a very strong position by which to play the structural growth in digital payments. They will be able to provide clients a wider portfolio of services,” Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, said.

Related CoverageShares in European payments companies rise on Worldpay takeover

Worldpay is a major player in card payments, particularly in Britain, while FIS, produces software for banks and asset managers as well as its financial services outsourcing business.

“FIS should accelerate its revenue growth, significantly expand its position in the merchant acquiring space and generate many synergies,” Worldpay shareholder Michael Schaefer, portfolio manager at Union Investment, said.

“DIVERSIFICATION PLAY”

Worldpay shareholders will receive 0.9287 FIS shares and $11 in cash for each share held, valuing the company at $112.12 per share, a premium of about 14 percent on its Friday close.

FIS shareholders will own about 53 percent in the combined firm and Worldpay’s about 47 percent, with Worldpay Chief Executive Charles Drucker becoming executive vice-chairman.

“This is a fast-changing industry and FIS was under pressure after Fiserv bought First Data in January,” another source close to the matter said, adding that Worldpay’s Drucker, who had come from Vantiv, was the driving force behind the deal.

“For FIS buying Worldpay means expanding beyond the world of financial outsourcing and tapping into payment processing and e-commerce, the source said, adding that it was a “diversification play” giving FIS access to the high-growth payments sector.

The companies said the deal would result in an organic revenue growth outlook of 6 to 9 percent through 2021, and $700 million of total core earnings savings over three years. They expect $500 million of revenue savings and are aiming to deliver nearly $4.5 billion of free cash flow in three years.

“The deal will lead to modest EPS accretion by 2020”, Norcross said in a conference call with analysts.

FIS, which has grown through acquisitions in the past 15 years, offers software and outsourcing services to banks, asset managers and insurers and in 2015 completed its buy of financial software company SunGard for $9.1 billion.

It had bought Metavante, which provides payment processing services to financial firms, for about $2.9 billion in 2009.

“FIS’ experience and expertise in getting cost to revenue synergies should give (the) market confidence that the targets announced around this deal are very doable,” Stephen’s analyst Brett Huff said in a note, adding that FIS could see increased revenue as companies step up outsourcing.

Centerview Partners and Goldman Sachs were financial advisers to FIS, while Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP served as legal advisers to FIS on the deal. Credit Suisse and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP served as financial and legal advisers respectively to Worldpay.

U.S. investor jailed by Russia tells Washington to keep distance: prison monitor

MOSCOW ( ) – A prominent U.S. investor being held in Russia on embezzlement charges has asked U.S. diplomats not to defend him because he is worried about his case becoming politicized, a prison monitor who visited him in custody said on Tuesday.

The detention last month of Michael Calvey, founder of the Baring Vostok private equity group, has strained U.S.-Russia ties and stoked talk of a possible U.S. boycott of an annual economic forum in June attended by President Vladimir Putin.

Calvey was detained along with three other executives from Baring Vostok上海夜生活网 after investigators accused them of stealing 2.5 billion roubles ($38.09 million), a charge he denies.

Ivan Melnikov, a member of a public body that monitors prisons, visited Calvey in custody on Monday and said the investor told him a U.S. diplomat had visited him and that Calvey had asked them not to play up his case publicly.

“He has asked (the U.S. diplomat) not to get actively involved in his defense because he is worried about the case becoming politicized,” Melnikov said.

Ties between Russia and the United States are at post-Cold War lows, strained by issues such as Moscow’s annexation of Crimea, the war in Syria, and espionage cases.

Calvey’s arrest has rattled some foreign investors who are worried about the business climate and some prominent Russian businessmen have called for him to be released from pre-trial detention on bail, saying his treatment has been too harsh.

The Kremlin has said Vladimir Putin does not plan to intervene in the case and that investigators should be allowed to do their job.

Melnikov said the U.S. investor was having problems receiving correspondence, but was in satisfactory condition.

“Calvey said he plans to continue with his projects in Russia when he gets out of pre-trial detention,” Melnikov said.

“He hopes they’ll get to the bottom of this case soon.”

Arch-eurosceptic Farage leads march over Brexit betrayal

SUNDERLAND, England ( ) – Nigel Farage, the politician who probably did more than anyone else to force Britain’s referendum on membership of the European Union, joined protesters at the start of a 270-mile march over what they call a betrayal of the Brexit vote.

The march comes after another tumultuous week for Prime Minister Theresa May in which parliament overwhelmingly rejected her divorce deal for a second time and lawmakers voted to seek a delay in Britain’s exit from the EU.

In the pouring rain in Sunderland, northeast England, which was the first place in Britain to declare a vote to leave the EU, Farage, wearing a flat cap and carrying an umbrella, said Brexit was now in danger of being scuttled by the establishment.

“We are here in the very week when parliament is doing its utmost to betray the Brexit result,” Farage said. “It is beginning to look like it doesn’t want to leave and the message from this march is if you think you can walk all over us we will march straight back to you.”

The march, which began with about 100 people, is due to end at parliament on March 29, the day the United Kingdom was supposed to leave the EU.

Britain’s crisis over EU membership is approaching its finale as May continues to fight to build support for her divorce deal, which is expected to be put before lawmakers for a third time next week. Many Brexit supporters in her own party oppose the deal, saying it ties Britain too closely to the EU.

May has given those critics an ultimatum – ratify her deal by Wednesday or face a delay to Brexit way beyond June 30 that would open up the possibility that the entire departure from the EU could ultimately be thwarted.

As leader of the eurosceptic United Kingdom Independence Party, Farage pressured former prime minister David Cameron to call the Brexit referendum and then helped lead the campaign to leave the EU. But he quit as the party’s leader in the days after the referen上海夜生活论坛dum.

In what pro-EU supporters said was a metaphor for his decision to walk away from the fallout of Brexit, Farage said he wouldn’t be completing the full two-week walk to London but would instead join campaigners for about a third of it.

Farage defended that decision and said as a member of the European Parliament he may have to take part in a vote on whether to approve the Brexit deal.

“I am quite a busy chap. I have a role in the European Parliament,” Farage said. “Don’t forgot the final vote is in the European Parliament. I think I ought to be there for that one.”

Koke unhappy with Atletico’s mistakes

Koke, the Atletico Madrid pl上海夜生活网aymaker, spoke about his side’s performance against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey as they were eliminated by Sevilla after a 5-2 loss on aggregate at the quarterfinal stage.

Atletico are out of the Copa del Rey now and Koke admitted that their opponent, Sevilla, were the better team in these two matches and they deserved to go through into to semifinals. The Copa’s final is going to be played at Atletico’s new stadium and the player admitted that it was a special motivation for him but it just wasn’t enough to make it through…

The key midfielder of the Spanish side spoke about this performance as he said, according to ESPN: “It is a hard blow. We really wanted to do well in this Copa, especially with the final in our new stadium. We did not play a good tie, they were the better team, and we must congratulate them. They were better in the decisive moments, we made two mistakes in the first leg, and then at the start today.”Kieran Trippier talks about his decision to leave Tottenham Nedim Maric – The English right-back changed the environment this summer, moving from rainy London to sunny Spain.Trippier is having a good start at Atletico Madrid. After rigorous…

He also insisted that the season has been good so far despite that: “We had been on a good run, although in these last three games we have not been good. But we will have to pick ourselves up, and this team always does that. We have to look at all the mistakes we made and improve as we are still up there in La Liga and the Europa League has given us a lot [before].”

In the end, Diego Simeone insisted that he is willing to take the full responsibility: “The responsibility of this exit, and the Champions League, is fully mine. And the responsibility to keep working the same as always. Now we must improve as there are still four months of the season left. I know this group, which keeps me relaxed. We will keep competing as we always have.”

Ince adamant United need more signings

The former Red Devil believes that Mourinho still has to reinforce some parts of his squad.

Manchester United will likely be in the market for around four players, according to Paul Ince.

The Red Devils completed a swap deal, adding Alexis Sanchez to their ranks, but letting Henrikh Mkhitaryan go in the process. And while they brought in some big names such as Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Neman上海夜生活ja Matić in recent years, Ince remains positive that Mourinho’s squad still need some new additions.

Speaking to Manchester Evening News, the former Red Devil insisted there is a busy summer ahead of the club from Old Trafford:Opinion: Solskjaer needs patience from Manchester United Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – As we enter into one of the most complicated moments for Solskjaer, we believe Manchester United needs to be patient with him.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer…

– There’s a seriously big summer coming for Manchester United. When you’re a club like that, you’re always trying to improve. And sometimes, that means current players lose out, but that’s just how it goes.

– Come summer, I’m expecting around three or four more players to come to Old Trafford. There are still issues to address, and it’s all José Mourinho forming his team.

– He came out the other day and said he thought Luke Shaw was world class. I can see what he’s getting at, but he’s gone from slating him and refusing to playing him to saying he’s one of the best in the world. I know what he’s trying to do, give him a boost, but I’m not sure it’s right to go calling him world class.

Wijnaldum described van Dijk as “a leader”

Georginio Wijnaldum, the Liverpool 上海夜生活midfielder, spoke about his future teammate, Virgil van Dijk, as he had a chance to play with him in the national team of his country – and he described him to be a “natural leader”.

The former Southampton defender joined the Reds for a record fee and he has become the world’s most expensive defender of history – but Wijnaldum believes that Liverpool won’t regret this decision. The Dutchman is certain that van Dijk will be a great addition to his team’s squad and he thinks that he will start showing that immediately.

The former Newcastle player spoke about his future colleague as he said, according to Sky Sports: “I was really happy when I spoke with him on the phone, I told him I was happy he was going to come and join us. And now there will be a little bit of Dutch support in the changing room. I think outside of the pitch he is a normal person, he’s easy going and relaxed and I think everyone in the club will like him.”Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He also insisted that he is a leader on the pitch: “On the pitch, from what I saw in the national team he is a leader, trying to help everyone, help with the defensive line, so I think he will help us in the team.”

In the end, Jürgen Klopp described why they have decided to bring him for such a crazy fee and also discussed a potential problem: “Quality. That’s why we got him, that’s why we were interested in him. It’s quite difficult at the moment because technically he’s still a Southampton player We only talk about the player and what he can bring in; the quality, the mentality, the character. That is why we are really happy about it.”

Carvahal not sure about winter transfers

Carlos Carvahal, the new Swansea coach, insisted that he hasn’t discussed his team’s transfer budget yet and he will give a chance to his players to prove themselves before he will decide anything regarding transfers.

The Portuguese arrived at the Liberty Stadium just a couple of days after he was sacked by Sheffield Wednesday, the Championship side, and he has signed a contract until the end of this season. The position of Leon Britton, the temporary coach, will be discussed in the upcoming days and the new coach rejected to speak about possible new arrivals as he insisted that he has to get to known with the squad at first.

The former Sheffield coach spoke about the question of money as he said, according to Sky Sports: “I did not talk money with the chairman, usually I don’t deal with the money, it is my romantic side talking. I deal with footballers, then if we need – try to say which players we need. I will try and choose them but the money is not what I want to talk about, I am allergic to money.”Opinion: Martin Odegaar上海夜生活d is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He added that he has to analyse the team first: “I will see what players we have in mind, who we need and who the scouts of Swansea have seen. I must analyse the team. You have surprises, sometimes negative, sometimes positive. First, we want to give opportunities to these players to show they are better, individually and as a collective than what they did so far.”

In the end, Carlos Carvahal insisted that the short-term deal is perfect for him: “I prefer to stay one year, check if the chairman, fans, players are happy with me, and after seeing the next step. I don’t want to stay in a club that the people is not happy with me. I don’t have a problem with my future. It is not a contract that puts someone at a club. It’s the day by day, you prove to the fans, the media.”

Kompany: “Our strikers are hungry form more”

Vincent Kompany, the Manchester City captain, insisted that all the attacking options that his side have increased Sergio Agüreo’s hunger for goals as he netted twice against Bournemouth in Manchester’s last 4-0 win.

Sergi Agüero has been very frustrated lately with the lack of playing time he has been given by Pep Guardiola as Gabriel Jesus has become the City’s number one striker – the Argentinian was given a chance to start against Bournemouth and he was so hungry for goals that he managed to find the net twice and helped his side to a huge 4-0 win away from home to secure their first place in the Premier League.

The Belgian defender spoke about his team’s striker situation as he said, according to ESPN: “These guys are just hungry for more. ‘Kun’ [Sergio Aguero] has always been inclined that way but I think everybody else now up front has a feeling of scoring goals, what it means to be the main man. It is something that doesn’t go away.”Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…

He also added that he has to praise everyone 上海夜网for working really hard to achieve their common goals: “Everyone is working hard in training, you can tell, to improve whatever they can to score more goals. That helps the team ultimately. We are in a good position with a lot of guys that want to do well.”

In the end, Vincent Kompany insisted that it was a big result to win like that against Bournemouth: “It’s a tremendous result, 4-0, but they had enough of an attacking force to make it difficult for us. Even in the second half, when they went two up front, we really had to be careful with the possession of the ball. But 17 wins a row, it’s something we want to continue – fight against ourselves really if we have to, to make sure we are always improving.”

Kanchelskis: Manchester derby important for United

Former Manchester United winger Andrei Kanchelskis believes the Red Devils have a “good chance” of winning the Premier League title once they defeat their local rivals

Manchester United will host rivals and league leaders Manchester City on Sunday, and the Devils must beat Guardiola’s side if they are still aiming at the title, according to Andrei Kanche上海夜生活论坛lskis. The two club giants will face each other in a very prestigious pre-Christmas derby of the English top-flight at Old Trafford.

Guardiola’s men have been unstoppable in the league so far, as the Citizens are the leaders, with Jose Mourinho’s side being second-placed with an 8-point deficit. If City manages to win, United will find themselves in trouble.

Kanchelskis played for both clubs during his career, and he says Mourinho’s men simply need a win, as they have been searching for a title since 2013.

“If Manchester United wins this derby game against Manchester City, they’ve a good chance to win the title,” the former United attacker told Omnisport.Solskjaer “very pleased” after another failure to win George Patchias – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was “very pleased,” even though United failed to win yet again.It is now ten games on the road since…

“It’s a must-win game. They [United] need the three points. It’s a difficult few months over Christmas time, through December and January. There are too many games.”

“There is the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup, League Cup and possibly national team duties as well. That’s too many, but we will see what happens,” the former Russia international explained.

The ex-winger suggested this game could decide who wins the Premier League title: “It [the derby] is important for both teams. If City drop points, there’s a good chance for United in this race to be crowned champions. If they don’t, it’s difficult for United to win the title.”

“Manchester City are playing good football. They are more attacking and have a lot of goal scorers. But we will see in December who is best – Mourinho or Guardiola,” Kanchelskis added.

‘Job done’ says delighted Harry Kane

The Three lions sealed an important win and secured their spot in the 2018 W上海夜生活orld Cup.

England have qualified for the upcoming World Cup in Russia after they clinched a late victory against Slovenia on Thursday. Harry Kane, who has been named the captain of England, was the one to secure the three points and prove he deserves to wear the armband.

The Spurs striker highlighted it did not matter how his team played if they got the result they came out for.

“[Qualification] is all that matters,” Kane told ITV. “It was frustrating at times and we had to be patient.Opinion: Harry Kane should continue his career elsewhere Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – After another embarrassing defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich, it’s about time for Harry Kane to continue his career elsewhere.The unfortunate phenomenon that is…

“In the last 10 minutes, they were getting tired and we created a few opportunities – I was happy to finally put one in the back of the net at the end.

“It’s amazing to get there. It’s no easy feat these days [to qualify]. There’s a lot of top countries around the world struggling to qualify. We’re all delighted.

“That’s job done for us. We have another game on Sunday [against Lithuania] and we need to keep doing what we’re doing and working hard.”

The final game of England is against Lithuania on Sunday, but they are already qualified as first seat with 6 points ahead of Scotland.

Wilshere needs more game time

England manager Gareth Southgate explained why he decided to not include Jack Wilshere in his squad against Germany and Brazil

According to GOAL, England boss Gareth Southgate says Jack Wilshere cannot expect to get back into the national squad without playing regularly for Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger stood beside Jack Wilshere, saying his midfielder deserves a recall after impressing performances in Europa League matches this season.

However, the 25-year-old has been left out of England’s squad for friendlies against world champions Germany and Brazil.

Southgate says he will speak to Wenger about Wilshere’s chances of returning in 2018 but in上海夜生活论坛sists he has to be playing more often, GOAL continues.

Jack Wilshere has only made one appearance in the Premier League this season, that one being a second-half substitute.

Gareth Southgate was asked about why Wilshere won’t get a chance in England’s national XI, and the coach said the midfielder first needs to play in Arsenal.Wijnaldum looking to repeat Champions League success Nedim Maric – Liverpool are the reigning winners of the Champions League.

“I don’t know how you get in an England squad without getting in the Arsenal team,” the manager told a news conference.

Southgate said he doesn’t question Wilshere’s abilities, but he needs to see the midfielder play before he can make the decision to call him in.

“There is no question about his ability, his football brain or personality, we just need to see him playing before he comes back in because unfortunately there has been a history of injuries.”

“I’ll be having discussions with Arsene about him, we think he is a top player so for him it’s about game time,” Southgate added.

Manchester United’s defender Ashley Young however, has been named as one of the 25 players in England’s squad after not playing for his nation’s team for 4 years.

Southgate believes Young will provide a good option as a wing-back, since the defender had shown very good performances this season.

“Young’s performances warrant a recall. We want to play with wing-backs — I think it’s a role he can perform, left or right, very well. He’s played very well for Manchester United.”

Preview: Lyon – Everton

Lyon are currently second in Group E, with five points after three matches, while their visitors today are last, having earned only one point.

Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Everton have now conceded 2+ goals in 3 consecutive European games, which has not happened since 2005-06 – a whole 39 European games ago.

Lyon approach this match unbeaten in 6 European home games. Their record unbeaten home run is 14, spanning matches between September 2004 and Novem上海夜生活ber 2007.

No miracles should be expected from Everton’s front line. The last time Everton won away in Europe by a margin of 4+ goals was in September ’79.

Lyon’s complete record against English opposition is W3, D5, L6. Only one of the 3 wins was by 2+ goals, in a 5-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday in 1961-62.Five things we learned from the Premier League at the weekend Taimoor Khan – With just Arsenal and Manchester United left to lock horns, we look at the few things the recent Premier League weekend showed us. The…

Only one Everton player has ever scored a hat-trick in a European away game and that was the now departed Romelu Lukaku (Man Utd), who did so against BSC Young Boys in February 2015.

The last time a Lyon match against English opposition produced over 4.5 goals was way back in December 1967.

Scoring first will give Everton a major boost and it could be important, as Everton have won just 8 out of the 23 European away games in which they have conceded first.

Lyon: C. Grenier (doubtful)

Everton: R. Barkley (groin injury), Y. Bolasie (injury), M. Keane (leg injury), R. Funes-Mori (knee injury), S. Coleman (doubtful), J. McCarthy (doubtful), N. Vlasic (doubtful).

Wenger calls upon Sanchez

The Frenchman has asked the Chilean to respect his contract.

Alexis Sanchez has been called upon at Arsenal as he delayed his return with an illness. The player has been a subject of heavy speculation with Bayern Munich, PSG and Manchester City interested in his services. However, Arsène Wenger has made it clear the Chile international will not be leaving Emirates this summer. T上海夜生活he player’s return has been postponed until Tuesday as he has been asked by his manager to respect his duties with the Gunners.

“He has flu. I had him on text yesterday saying he would come back as soon as possible.Arsenal urged to sign Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly Andrew Smyth – Emmanuel Frimpong has urged Arsenal to target Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly in order to finally solve their defensive woes.

“We’re in touch with him and his doctor.

“There’s no problem except he won’t come back tomorrow, he’ll be back on Tuesday. There’s no development. It’s always the same. He’s staying, of course. I think the players who want a new contract have to respect their contract.” – the manager added.

“For a manager it’s a bit different, it concerns. What is the future of the club, what’s going on, what’s happening, it has great uncertainty. For the player it’s different.

“I can’t reveal to you what he says, I cannot reveal what is a secret conversation. We speak in English. He’s flying back as soon as he’s in a position to fly back – he has the flu. That’s normally four or five days.”

Rudiger admits he ‘dreamt’ of Chelsea move

The Germany international cannot wait to play in the Premier League.

Antonio Rudiger is more than happy to finally be a part of the Premier League champions. The player joined Chelsea in a £34 million move from Roma, after being linked with the Blues a number of times in the past.

The full-back now admits he has been waiting for ‘years’ to finally join Chelsea and experience the Premier League. Speaking to ChelseaFC.com, Rudiger said:

“I wanted to play in the Premier League and it is now years that my name was linked to Chelsea.

“Now I am here and I am very happy. I want to thank all of the people who made this come true.”Chelsea need owner Abramovich back at the Bridge George Patchias – Chelsea football club apparently is missing their owner Roman Abramovich, and hi上海夜生活论坛s return is key to the team’s success.That the theory from former Chelsea…

The 24-year-old knows he is diving into the unknown since the English Premier League is much different from Serie A and its competitiveness is much higher.

“I cannot say much about the Premier League because I did not experience it yet.

“But the Italian league is more tactical. You don’t have open games but here in England it is different, both teams are attacking the whole time so that is the main big difference, and of course the physical aspect in England.

“I think the whole league is a big challenge so I need to be prepared for each game.”
