Sterling rises off five-month low vs euro after April pay data

LONDON ( ) – Sterling pulled away from five-month lows versus the euro on Tuesday after British wages in the three months to April rose faster than expected.

The pound has been on the backfoot in recent weeks as investors sit on the sidelines while the contest to succeed Theresa May as leader of the Conservative party and country heats up.

Worse than expected data on Monday showing the British economy shrank 0.4% in April added to the pound’s worries.

But sterling found relief after wage growth in the three months to April came in at 3.1%, exceeding a forecast by a poll of economists for 3%. Employment growth slowed but the jobless rate held at its lowest since 1975, the official figures showed.

Wage growth is outstripping inflation and the Bank of England has said it will need to raise interest rates – probably faster than the market expects – to keep inflation close to its 2% target.

The pound recovered from five-month lows against the euro of 89.325 pence hit earlier in the session and rose 0.3% to 88.93 pence.

Versus the dollar the British currency rose 0.3% to $1.2728 from around $1.2694 before the data.

British Gilt yields rose around a basis point across the curve after the labour market data, moving away from 2-1/2 year lows hit last week. The exporter-heavy FTSE 100 trimmed gains after sterling rallied.

“The British labour market remains rather resilient and provides little cause for concern, as the unemployment rate continues to be unchanged at a very low level,” said Marc-André Fongern, a strategist at MAF Global Forex in Frankfurt.

“Given that average earnings have improved steadily, we expect a slightly optimistic BoE in the near future.”

Investors have largely ignored economic data releases in Britain recently, believing the BoE is unlikely to act until Britain decides how, when and even if it will leave the European Union. The United Kingdom 上海夜生活论坛is scheduled to exit the bloc on Oct. 31.

David Cheetham, an analyst at online broker XTB, said the UK economy looked to be far from thriving but given the “dual headwinds of ongoing political uncertainty and a slowing global economy”, current levels of activity were about as good as could be expected.

Analysts at Danske Bank said softer UK data in recent weeks, including Monday’s GDP numbers, suggested “the economy is likely to see a minor deterioration in fundamentals, which is set to weigh on GBP”.

Investors are concerned the next British prime minister could put the country on course for a no-deal Brexit after May failed to get her withdrawal agreement through parliament. Eurosceptic Boris Johnson is the bookmakers’ favourite to win the contest.

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.

EU to remove UK, Dutch overseas territories from tax haven blacklist

BRUSSELS ( ) – European Union finance ministers are set to remove this week the British overseas te上海夜网rritory of Bermuda, the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba and Barbados from the bloc’s blacklist of tax havens, an EU official said on Monday.

The three islands were added to the list in March because the EU found shortfalls in their tax rules that could favor tax evasion in other states.

The decision, which is due to be formalized by EU finance ministers in a meeting on Friday, will remove from the list the only EU territories that are currently on it.

EU countries are not even screened as they are deemed compliant, although the EU Parliament has accused seven of them of acting as tax havens. They are Luxembourg, Cyprus, Ireland, Malta, Hungary, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Listing decisions are made by the 28 EU governments. Each one of them has the power to veto any decision on the matter.

Jurisdictions are removed from the blacklist when they address their main shortfalls and commit to further reforms to increase tax transparency.

With this week’s removal of the three islands, the blacklist will shrink to twelve jurisdictions. It will still include the United Arab Emirates, Oman and the three U.S. territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Other jurisdictions on the list are Belize, Fiji, the Marshall Islands, Vanuatu, Dominica, Samoa and Trinidad and Tobago.

Blacklisted states face reputational damage and stricter controls on transactions with the EU.

The EU set up the blacklist in December 2017 after revelations of widespread tax avoidance schemes used by corporations and wealthy individuals to lower their tax bills.

The list initially comprised 17 jurisdictions, but it is subject to regular reviews. Countries with legal shortfalls are added if they do not amend their rules by set deadlines.

Schumer, McConnell elected top leaders in Senate

WASHINGTON ( ) – Democratic U.S. senators elected Chuck Schumer of New York as minority leader on Wednesday, and he tapped former presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders to help Democrats woo blue-collar workers, many of whom voted for President-elect Donald Trump.

Senate Republicans also met and voted to keep Mitch McConnell of Kentucky as the majority leader.

Schumer, 65, replaces the retiring Harry Reid of Nevada as the top Democrat in the Senate as the party prepares to deal with Republican Trump and Republican majorities in both the Senate and House of Representatives.

Schumer said Democrats had learned from the Nov. 8 election that they needed “a sharper, bolder economic message about returning the economic system which so many feel is rigged against them to one that works for the people.”

“We’re ready to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Republicans, working with soon-to-be-President Trump on issues where we agree, but we will go toe-to-toe against the president-elect whenever our values or the progress we’ve made is under assault,” Schumer, who has been in the Senate since 1999, told reporters after the Democrats’ closed-door election.

In a move recognizing the influence of Sanders with many working-class voters, Schumer asked the independent senator from Vermont to be caucus head of outreach. Sanders, who lost the presidential primary to former senator and secretary of state Hillary Clinton, said his job was to reach out to “grassroots America.”

Another liberal, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was given the role of vice chair of the conference while yet another progressive voice, Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, was made conference secretary.

Senator Joe Manchin, a more conservative Democrat from West Virginia, was named vice chairman of the Democratic policy and communications committee.

Schumer said he knew there would be differences of opinion on the new team, but that together the gro上海夜生活up could “speak to the blue-collar worker in West Virginia, and Michigan, as well as the people who live along the coast.”

Trump’s economic populism helped him flip some once-reliably Democratic areas in blue-collar states while Democrats did better in large urban centers and coastal states.

Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois remained minority whip, the No. 2 spot, while Senator Patty Murray of Washington was chosen as assistant Democratic leader.

In the House, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi announced she was running for minority leader again and said she already has the support of more than two-thirds of her caucus.

Pelosi, who may face a challenger, agreed this week to delay leadership elections until Nov. 30 after her fellow Democrats called for more time to reassess why they fell short of their goals in the Nov. 8 election.

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. 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.”

Stoichkov believes that Guardiola has been successful because of money

Hristo Stoichkov, the former Barcelona striker, insisted that he believes that Pep Guardiola’s success at Manchester City goes mostly down to the amount of money he has been given as he can buy almost any上海夜生活网 player in the world.

Pep Guardiola has been incredibly successful in his career as he managed to win domestic league and cup with both Bayern Munich and Barcelona – to be added, he also won the Champions League with the Catalonian side. Now, he is about to win the Premier League with his new club but the former player of Barcelona believes that the money has been really important there…

The former Bulgaria international spoke about the former Barca coach as he said, according to Goal: “He was a born leader. Everyone was connected to him on the pitch due to his position in the midfield. Each play started through him. Ronald Koeman got the ball to Guardiola and he did the rest. He became the leader of the play at such a young age for that position. He had a long career with Spain, too.”Top 5 Real Madrid players who are succeeding on a loan Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – We need to talk about the Top 5 Real Madrid players who are currently succeeding away from the club and are currently on a…

He continued by adding that he has been impressed by Mourinho’s career as well: “Mourinho was always a coach, but few knew about it. Mourinho had a special position. He was writing down what each player did, or could not do in the training. Then he was telling Robson about it all. That’s why he is one of the greatest managers in the world. He was always one step ahead.”

In the end, Hristo Stoichkov claimed that Lionel Messi is the greatest player to him: “Messi cannot be compared to anyone. He is the greatest. I want him to win the World Cup, so people will stop comparing to the others. Nobody can do what he does at Barcelona.”

Mbapp\u00e9 admitted that Ronaldo was his idol

Kylian Mbappé, the PSG wonder kid, insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo was his childhood idol and he has a possibility to become his teammate but he believes that his current team can be better than Real Madrid.

The former Monaco player admitted that he spoke with Real Madrid about his potential transfer to the Spain capital but in the end, he decided to join PSG – and he insisted that he made this decision with his heart as PSG is a team from his home city and it was just a natural thing to make such a choice.

The French youngster spoke about his possible transfer to Real as he said, according to ESPN: “There were a lot of transfer rumours, it’s true that we spoke, but I think that is now in the past for me and for Real Madrid. Now I play at PSG and I’m going to defend these colours 100 percent. I chose PSG because it’s the team of my city, it’s like if a madrileno [Madrid born] boy of [Real] Madrid has the opportunity to play for his team and goes elsewhere, to another country.

He also added that he believes that PSG can become even better than Real Madrid: “Real have dominated football in recent years but it’s not just them now. There are other big teams, like [Manchester] City, Juventus, Bayern [Munich] and we are also there. But I believe the team that wins our tie will be clear favourites to win the Champions League. If we are capable of eliminating Real then the other teams will fear us.”

In the end, Mbappé insisted that he hopes that his side can prove themselves in the knockout stage: “We’ve had a very good group stage and we have the opportunity to prove to the world that we can eliminate the team that successfully defended the Champions League. There is no pressure, not at all, the pressure doesn’t fall on us.”

Wilshere impressed by summer signings

The Gunners midfielder praise highly the impact of Lacazette and Kolašinac.

Jack Wilshere believes that adding Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolašinac to Arsenal’s ranks was a great deal. The Gunners went through yet another relatively quiet summer, with the main topic around the club being the possible departure of Alexis Sanchez.

However, the club from north London landed former Monaco striker Lacazette who took no time to settle in at his new home. Speaking to Arsenal Player about the Frenchman, Wilshere stated: “Lacazette, of course [has impressed].

“I think he’s gone a little bit under the radar with Morata [doing so well], but to come in from the French league to a big club in England and score four goals in his first seven or eight games [is very good].

“He’s doing well and he’s only going to get better.

“Sead’s turned into a real fans’ favourite because he’s no-nonsense, even in training.” Wilshere added regarding the defender.

“He’s a natural-born winner. He’s a monster physically and you’d hate to play against him.

“You look at when the winger receives the ball, he’s onto him, not giving him an inch. He wins the ball back a lot for the team, so he’s doing well.”

‘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…

“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.

Rashford feels that the winning mentality is back

Marcus Rashford is happy with the current form of his side and he said that everybody can feel that “the winning mentality is back” but there is still a long way to go to match the days when there was the glorious Sir Alex Ferguson’s squad.

Rashford has had a perfect introduction to the United first team, going from the academy to winning four trophies in the senior side within just 21 months. The England forward won the 2016 FA Cup under Louis van Gaal before claiming Europa League, EFL Cup and Community Shield winners’ medals under current boss Jose Mourinho, according to Sky Sports.

The England international spoke about his feelings about winning more trophies and the success of the current squad: “There are so many different incidents that can easily pass you by and you forget about. As soon as you win a trophy, in my mind straight away, you’re thinking about winning the next trophy. That’s when you can miss the moment of enjoying winning that trophy, it’s difficult.”Top 5 Premier League players in September’s last weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – A fresh Premier League fixture just ended, which means we can talk about the Top 5 best players of September’s last weekend.After a fresh…

Marcus Rashford also added: “We went through that second year and won three trophies in the year, so we were winning things and winning things and it became normal for us. That’s what United has always been about, so it is important for us to try and get that feeling back to Old Trafford of winning.”

But he believes that the current team has got everything required to write their own history: “It’s definitely coming back, but where they were to where we are now, we’ve still got a long way to go because they were consecutively winning. Consecutively winning is different to winning one thing or winning two things. It’s more difficult be上海夜生活网cause everybody wants to beat you. We want to make it (Old Trafford) the fortress that it was before. I think we’re on a path back to doing that. We’ve got the right manager, we have the right staff, so it’s just about producing now on the field.”

Preview: Atletico Madrid – AS Roma

Atletico Madrid are playing one of their last chances to qualify from Group C tonight, as they host leaders AS Roma.

Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Atletico are remarkably still without a win in Group C in the Champions League (CL), but still have a slim chance to progress if they can beat AS Roma in this game.

If they are to win, they need to do something which they currently struggle to do – score goals. Furthermore, they might need to score more than 1 as Roma have yet to draw a blank when playing away this season. And this might pose a problem for Atletico, who’ve failed to score 2+ goals in the last 5 matches (all competitions)!

In fact, Diego Simeone’s men have only managed to score more than 1 goal on 4 occasions this season (17 matches, all competitions). Although still hard to beat (1 defeat), their lack of goals going forward have resulted in a surprisingly high number of draws this season (10) – 7 draws in the last 10 games!

Domestically, Atletico have scored 16 goals in 12 matches, their worst tally since 2005.

Contrast this with high-flying Roma, who are fresh from a 2-1 Derby della Capitale win against Lazio, their 6th win on the bounce. This run also includes the 3-0 thumping of Chelsea in the CL. In the CL, Edin Dzeko alone (3 goals) has scored more than Atletico (2).Joao Felix keeps making history with Atletico Madrid Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – After yet another stellar performance with Atletico Madrid, Joao Felix made history after scoring his first goal vs Lokomotiv.Atletico Madrid had a complicated visit…

The Italians know that a point in Madrid will lock 上海夜生活网up qualification to the next round of the CL. However, to be certain of keeping Antonio Conte’s Chelsea behind them and gain the important seeding that winning the group will provide, they might need the win here.

Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco spoke highly of the team’s effort and future prospects to the clubs website after the derby this weekend, stating that “at Roma, the most difficult thing is to get in the player’s heads, and now we’ve got to that stage.” He also had some special words for midfield fighter Radja Nainggolan, who recently recovered from injury in record time: “We call him “Ninja”, but I’d say he’s a superhero.”

A matter of margins? Although winless in the CL in 4 matches so far, Atletico have been equal to or better than their opponents in some underlying statistics; in the 0-0 draw with Roma in the group’s opening game, they were 9-1 in shots on goal. In total, Atletico have fired 26 shots on goal, while allowing only 9. And still their goal difference is 2-3!

Missing players

Atletico Madrid: S. Savic (suspension), S. Vrsaljko (injury)

AS Roma: A. Florenzi (knee injury), R. Karsdorp (knee injury), P. Schick (injury).

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.

Missing players

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).

Ince doesn’t understand Lukaku’s critics

Paul Ince simply can’t understand the critics of Romelu Lukaku – the Belgian has failed to score for six matches in a row now and after his great start, he fails to meet the expectations of the fans and pundits.

José Mourinho, the Manchester United manager, was a bit upset about the criticism of Lukaku and he is not the only one – Paul Ince fully agrees with the Portuguese coach and backed him. There is no reason for criticizing the 24-year old striker as he is just at the beginning of his career at Old Trafford.

The former Red Devils star spoke about the current situation as he claimed, according to Goal: “Jose Mourinho was absolutely right to criticise the Man United fans after the Tottenham game. When Romelu L上海夜生活网ukaku came to Manchester United, and he was bagging goals for fun, no one was saying a thing. Not one United fan was moaning.”Wijnaldum looking to repeat Champions League success Nedim Maric – Liverpool are the reigning winners of the Champions League. However, this isn’t stopping them for aiming to get the glory once again.After a perfect…

He wants the haters to give him a proper reason for the criticism: “We’re talking about someone who has scored 11 goals for United already, and we’re only at the start of November. Let’s get it right. So, when I see that Mourinho has had a dig at the fans for booing, I literally couldn’t agree with him anymore for doing that. Those fans needed telling. When I was playing, even when things were going badly wrong, fans would support their team. They’re called supporters for a reason. And I think there’s a huge difference between ‘fans’ and ‘supporters’ nowadays.”

Paul Ince also made a comment about the United fans: “When you look at Huddersfield fans, they are what you would call a traditional supporter. They stick by their team whether things are going right or wrong. I was at Anfield for the game last week, and they didn’t stop singing, even when they were three goals down.”

Bonucci expecting a Milan victory in Serie A derby

The Italian is grateful for his time with the Nerazzurri, but hopes to come out as a victor after the clash between Inter and AC Milan.

Leonardo Bonucci has looked back on his spell with Inter Milan ahead of the Serie A derby on Sunday. The Italy international completed a shocking move during the summer as he swapped the Nerezzurri with the Rossoneri in a record €40m deal.

Even though Bonucci is thankful for his great time at Inter, he is expecting a win for his new club AC Milan despite a rather shaky start of the season.

“I arrived when I was 17 years old and had two splendid years in their youth academy, where I really improved a lot,” Bonucci told Tencent Sports.

“They are a good side with some great individual talents and chose an important coach in Luciano Spalletti.

“We’ll have to be very wary and give our best. I would take Antonio Candreva and Eder off the Inter squad, as they are my Italy team-mates and they’re two really great guys.Milan lose but should stay positive Taimoor Khan – After leading the game against Torino, Milan went on to lose 2-1 in heartbreaking fashion but the players showed a lot of promise.

“I predict a Milan victory, but I won’t tell you [by] how much.”

The Italian also shared a few words regarding his choice to join the Rossoneri, stating that the new challenge at San Siro is what brought him to AC Milan.

“This stadium is the history of football, the most important arena in Italy. Stepping into San Siro always has an effect on you,

“The Rossoneri project is what pushed me to choose this great challenge. I knew there would be difficulties, but I accepted it because I wanted to challenge myself again.

“The objective is to set no limitations in Serie A or the Europa League. Qualification 上海夜生活论坛for the Champions League must be the minimum target, as Milan have to play in that tournament every year.”

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 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.”

Perez: “I think Ronaldo will stay”

Real Madrid’s president has again spoken about the future of Cristiano Ronaldo on Santiago Bernabeu.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. June 28, 2017.

In the studio of a radio show in Spain, Florentino P上海夜生活erez expressed his certitude that Ronaldo will continue with Real Madrid.

“I know he is angry, but I think he will stay”, Perez was quoted by the Spanish press.

“I haven’t spoken with him. The only thing that we can do is to wait and to speak after the Confederations Cup. I talked with Mendes about him. There is no need to be more worried than it is the case.”

“I am not thinking about him leaving. He is the best player we have, he is the best in the world and he has a contract. There are people who think he does this to get a wage increase, but in the eight years he has been here, he has never done that. He is not the type of person to come and ask for more money. You cannot sign a new contract every year.”

“He is a man of integrity and he fully respects his obligations. There are many people that want to hurt him regarding these taxes and other things, and he feels that”, Perez added in the defense of his player.

Real’s president also wanted to specify that he did not ask the press not to publish pictures with Cristiano Ronaldo in a Real Madrid shirt when the subject of tax fraud is discussed: “These are small problems for us. It’s not at all true that I have called someone. There is a lot of distraction, but we cannot stay all day long to infirm news. The fans know perfectly how every journalist is, and people trust us.”
