Congrats to our latest partner the @Colts on their 20-17 win yesterday. #KCvsIND

🎯 It’s been a shaky PL start in defense for TAA, but in passing he ranks:

πŸ”Ί 1st – passes through the back line (97)
πŸ”Ί 3rd – passes into final third (184)
πŸ”Ί 5th – passes leading to shot (20)
πŸ”Ί 7th – pressured passes

Is Southgate right not to include him for #ENGGER?

#LFC

Overall, the #Packers rank just 18th for yards gained per pass completion, and Rodgers has 4 throw aways. Brady is 8-34 on +10 yard attempts, and 3-11 on +20 yard attempts for #Buccaneers.

Whether it’s Brady’s O-Line, or Rodgers’ receivers; these QBs have trust issues right now.

Tua ➑️ Tyreek

This deep middle 48-yard TD pass brought the #Dolphins within one score of the Ravens in Week 2. It’s currently the 2nd-most improbable completion (20.7% chance) so far in the #NFL.

Another πŸ‘€ at @cheetah’s first TD as a 🐬!

πŸ“Ί: Watch #MIAvsBAL on @NFLonCBS

#MiamiDolphins and #BuffaloBills both currently average 6.7 yards per play, tied (also with the Eagles and Chiefs) for 2nd in the #NFL after Week 2.

Buffalo just edges Miami in 1st downs (46-45) and drive-scoring rate (52.4%-47.4%).

Expect a high-scoring game. ⚑️

Clash of the titans

In any season this is a huge clash but it’s even more significant this season with the two sides split by three points at the top of the table as we approach the midway point of the season. Manchester United head to Anfield top of the table and can open up a six-point gap with a win.


Liverpool form

When Liverpool hammered Crystal Palace 7-0, it looked like they were about to leave the rest in their wake over Christmas with games against West Brom and Newcastle to come.

But they drew both games and then lost to Southampton leaving Jurgen Klopp’s side in the midst of a tricky period. The champions have taken one point from their last nine and have won just two out of their last sixΒ league games.


Anfield record

They have been overtaken in the table by their bitter rivals but their home record is outstanding with seven wins and a draw from eight games this season in the Premier League.

Liverpool have made Anfield a fortress and are unbeaten in 67 matches at home in the Premier League, since losing to Crystal Palace in April 2017.


Matip fitness

Joel Matip is a doubt but Jurgen Klopp has said he is β€˜close’ to a return which would be a big boost for the club, who started midfielder Jordan Henderson at centre-back next to Fabinho.


Manchester United form

Man United are top of the league in January for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired after nine wins in their last 11 league matches. The Red Devils are unbeaten away from home in the Premier League since a loss to Liverpool on the 19th of January last season – a run of 15 away games.


Since Bruno signed & Big Six issues

They have earned more points than any other side since Bruno Fernandes made his debut last February. However, United this season have not yet beaten a Big Six side, with 0-0 draws against Chelsea and Manchester City, and defeats against Tottenham and Arsenal.

In Solskjaer’s first 12 months, United won seven of 13 games against the Big Six, drawing four. But in their last 13 games against the top sides, they have won just three.


Head-to-head

United have not beaten Liverpool in their last four meetings. They have not scored at Anfield in four of their last five visits with Liverpool winning the last two at home.

Two of the three meetings between Klopp and Solskjaer have ended in draws.

Only three of the last 12 matches between the two sides have produced three or more goals. The matches between the Big Six sides have been tight this season with nine of 14 featuring fewer than three goals.
