We are very much too familiar with the World’s best players that football history would ever come across. And we most times would think they most obviously would be the richest. The shocking truth is that they both are not. Even when Messi and Ronaldo’s wealth are combined together, they aren’t up to this young man.
Who is this young man? Faiq Bolkiah. The 20-year-old Leicester academy midfielder is the most valued player in the world, even though he has yet to make a senior appearance for Leicester city. Otherwise known as the foxes.
The young reserve player is the nephew of the sultan of Brunei with an estimated networth of €15 billion nothing compared to Messi and Ronaldo.

REDS MARCH ON- Liverpool 5 Everton 2: Reds make it club-record 32 unbeaten in league as Marco Silva facing sack this week

Published

THERE was no need for Jurgen Klopp to sprint across the Anfield turf on this occasion.

In fact, he barely broke a sweat as his rampant Liverpool side continued their emphatic march to expectant Premier League glory.

And on this occasion, in their quest for a first title in 30 years, it proved a hugely significant result.

This time last year, Liverpool were nicking a late win against Everton after Jordan Pickford’s howler handed Divock Origi the easiest of winners.

It was a result that clawed them back to within two points of champions-to-be Manchester City – one which saw Klopp surge onto the pitch in typical Klopp-fashion.

Fast forward 12 months and Origi was the Merseyside hero once more with a sublime first-half double worthy of winning titles all on their own.

Xherdan Shaqiri and Sadio Mane also scored before half-time before Gini Wijnaldum bagged as the clock hit 90 to see off their struggling neighbours.

And this time, it was a victory that saw the Reds maintain an 11-point gap on Pep Guardiola’s City.

The hunters are now the hunted. The chasers are now the chased – setting standards that not even Guardiola can match right now.

Forty points from 14 games. Fifteen consecutive home league wins. A club-record 32 league games unbeaten.

If they were to be caught after bridging such an impressive gap, it would surpass any Premier League meltdown since its inception in 1992.

Of course, Klopp’s record-breaking 100th league win in 159 games was not as comfortable as he would have liked, as goals from Michael Keane and Richarlison before the break gave the Toffees hope.

It’s now 13 games in all competitions without a clean sheet for Liverpool, something that will concern Klopp as they head into their global fixture pile-up.

It’s a pile-up that saw Klopp make a surprising five changes to his starting line-up, with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Jordan Henderson dropped to the bench.

But he need not have worried, heading into the 234th Merseyside derby with the biggest points gap between the two sides in 125 years of the fixture.

Everton even began the night in the bottom three.

And it showed – an under-pressure and axe-fearing Marco Silva could do nothing but admire as his struggling Everton side bowed once more to their superior Merseyside rivals.

Liverpool’s attacking threat – spearheaded by a man in Mane who looks to have wrestled the Anfield crown from Salah and Firmino in recent months – was unstoppable from the opening seconds.

And six minutes in, Mane and Origi combined to leave Everton’s defenders helpless and stunned.

With what looked like no angle to pass, Mane created one of his own with an inch-perfect ball that wiped out two defenders, allowing Origi to round Pickford and find an empty net.

And ten minutes later, the contest looked to be over with a quick-fire second, Everton without a win against Liverpool after going behind home or away since the Second World War.

Trent Alexander-Arnold produced a magnificent diagonal ball to unleash Mane, who then cut inside before giving a no-look reverse pass for Shaqiri to finish after beating the offside trap.

For all their dominance up front, there remains an openness to Liverpool currently, one which Everton took advantage of to get back into the game.

A neat corner routine saw Alex Iwobi find Keane at the near post, who manoeuvred several bobbles to fire his effort into the roof of Adrian’s net.

This sparked Everton’s best spell of the game, one which could have seen them awarded a 25th minute penalty had VAR deemed Virgil Van Dijk’s shove on Richarlison a foul.

Alexander-Arnold was then lucky to avoid red after leaving studs on the ankle of Lucas Digne.

But in a flash, Liverpool responded in the only way they know how.

With 31 minutes on the clock, Dejan Lovren went long from the back as Origi evaded Everton’s centre backs before the deftest of touches teed up a delightful lob over the oncoming Pickford.

And 14 minutes later Mane deservedly got on the scoresheet after a supersonic counter attack by Alexander-Arnold gave him the space and time to curl his effort from the edge of the box into the bottom corner.

That’s now 13 goals for the Senegalese sensation – the same amount as Salah and Firmino combined.

 

For their consistency in attack there remained some worrying consistency at the back – Richarlison finding space in the box on the brink of half-time to head past Adrian.

Thankfully for Klopp, the second half was a more controlled affair after a six-goal thriller of a first half.

Mane had chances to make it even more comfortable but could not find the net.

Eventually, Liverpool saw out and passed yet another test of their title credentials when Wijnaldum found the back of the net following good work from sub Firmino down the left.

But unlike last season, Klopp did not need to end this Merseyside derby with a pitch invasion.

He will save that for May, with what should be a Premier League medal around his neck.

JOHN YOU GO- Chelsea 2 Aston Villa 1: John Terry’s homecoming ruined as Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount goals seal win for Blues

Published

THEY rolled out the red carpet for John Terry but there was no old pals’ act for the Chelsea legend’s first return to Stamford Bridge.

The last time the most successful captain in the club’s history was here, he was carried off shoulder high by his team-mates.

This time he had to settle for a place in the visitors’ dug-out as part of Villa’s coaching team.

But the Chelsea faithful still regard him very much as one of their own and gave him the kind of welcome reserved for Blues royalty.

First they rolled out a massive ‘Terry 26’ banner depicting all his trophies across the Matthew Harding End then serenaded their former defender with the old ‘John Terry has won the double’ song.

What a pity his former team-mates were not quite so accommodating.

And how unfortunate that Tammy Abraham was not quite so generous to his former club.

Chelsea’s young England striker scored 26 goals for Aston Villa on loan with Dean Smith’s team last season to help win promotion to the Premier League.

Yet when his chance came to bury the club who helped to set him on the road to stardom, he did not hesitate to stick the knife in.

He might not have celebrated his 23rd minute goal which set Chelsea on their way to their first win in four games, but he did just about everything else to make Smith’s life a misery.

Back after missing Saturday’s shock defeat by West Ham with a hip injury, Abraham was clearly keen to show the travelling Villa fans just what they are missing.

No wonder he was applauded off by both sets of supporters when he limped out of the action ten minutes from the end.

Villa, beaten in their last eight Premier League visits to London, arrived at the Bridge just three points away from the relegation zone.

And they were on the back foot straight away when they were opened up on the counter by Christian Pulisic before Willian’s ferocious shot was beaten away by Tom Heaton.

Mason Mount sent a tame header straight at the Villa keeper and then blazed yards over the bar when he was presented with another scoring opportunity just seconds later.

And when Pulisic was just beaten to the punch by Ahmed El Mohamady as they competed for Willian’s inviting cross, you could sense the tension starting to kick in among the home supporters.

They need not have worried. Villa’s defence were starting to creak under the pressure and after 23 minutes they were blown wide apart.

Reece James’ chip in from the right picked out Abraham drifting in behind the dozing Ezri Konsa and Chelsea’s leading scorer made no mistake with his unchallenged header.

He did not celebrate his 12th goal of the season out of respect for the Villa fans behind the goal but he was clearly relishing his battle of the giants with international pal Tyrone Mings.

Ten minutes after opening the scoring, he was clearing a Villa corner at one end and then leading the counter attack which required a last-ditch intervention by Mings.

But just when it seemed that Chelsea were ready to turn the screw, they were undone once again by their defensive shortcomings.

El Mohamady was given far too much time out wide to deliver a 42nd minute cross which was missed by both Wesley and Andreas Christensen but bundled in by Trezeguet.

Chelsea were desperately hoping that VAR might back up their appeals for handball by Villa’s Egyptian international.

But the TV replays merely confirmed that Trezeguet had inadvertently nudged the ball over the line after somehow heading straight down onto his own boot.

It means Chelsea have now managed just four clean sheets in 23 games in all competitions this season.

No team with serious title ambitions can afford to be so generous at the back but at least they have the firepower at the other end of the pitch to give them a fighting chance.

That much was evident three minutes into the second-half when they regained the lead which they had so carelessly surrendered just before the break.

Not for the first time Villa’s defence stood off Willian to allow the opportunity to cross from the right for Abraham to lay off to Mount with his chest.

The young midfielder’s finishing might have been unconvincing earlier in the game, but there was nothing wrong with his connection this time as he sent a superb right-foot volley into the top corner.

Abraham could have made life more comfortable for Frank Lamaprd but flicked a 73rd minute shot just the wrong side of the far post.

Willian’s late free-kick was brilliantly tipped against the post by the flying Heaton and Villa sub Douglas Luiz almost snatched a last-gasp equaliser with a firm header which Kepa did well to shovel around for a corner.

But there were to be no late heroics for Terry who departed with one last hug for Lampard and a wave to the fans who will never forget his contribution to their glory years.
