Liverpool Thrash Jordan Ayew’s Crystal Palace FC By Seven-Goal

Published

Liverpool FC

Inform defending Premier League champion; Liverpool laid down a marker to the Premier League’s chasing pack with a thumping 7-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

It’s the first time in the club’s history that Liverpool has won by seven goals away from home in the English top-flight, adding yet another record to this side’s illustrious catalogue of accolades.

Liverpool’s victory puts the team six points clear at the top of the Premier League, but more importantly, it signals that Jurgen Klopp’s side may well be back to its very best.

The Reds have struggled at times to replicate the scintillating form that saw them win the title at a canter last season, in particular looking shaky in defense.

However, despite the absence of two of its main defenders in Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez — the former likely out for the rest of the season — Liverpool has navigated the recent congested fixture list expertly.

Though the wins and the points have flowed, the football on the pitch has been far from perfect. Saturday’s win, however, is an ominous sign to those hoping to dethrone Liverpool that Klopp has once again got this team to click.

West Ham cruised to the knockout stages of the Europa Cup and are fourth on the English Premier League table, thanks to the guidance of former Manchester United manager David Moyes.

Although Ayew struggled to establish himself in London, he was a big fan of the Scottish trainer.

“They are doing really well and that is proof that last season wasn’t just a fluke,” he told LondonWorld.com.

“The thing about David Moyes and his coaching team is that he knows how to put the team into a good structure and that is clearly showing and they are winning games.

“I know what it means to the fans to have the team competing with the big boys and playing in Europe.

“But I urge them to continue winning because the Premier League is the best league in the world and the moment you stop winning you get into trouble.

Ghanaian Striker, Raphael Dwamena Set To Retire From Active Football Following His Heart Condition

Ghana striker who plays for BW Linz, Raphael Dwamena will be considering retirement from football after his team terminated his contract, GhanaCNN.com can exclusively report.

The 26-year-old and the Austrian club agreed to mutually part ways following his heart problems, which has affected his career.

Sporting Director of BW Linz, Tino Wawra explained the club can’t afford to risk it anymore and the ex-Levante striker should consider retirement.

“There was an appointment this week when we told him and his management that it was no longer an option for us that he was playing the field for us. The risk is too great for us,” Wawra told LAOLA1.

Waora continued: “We are very sorry for him. Apart from Salzburg, you will not find a player with the quality of healthy Rafael Dwamena in all of Austria. It is a shame that he probably has to consider final retirement now. He is a great man, with a fine personality. That is why the decision has become more difficult for us.”

Dwamena went down in the OFB Cup game against Hartberg after he had a shock from the implanted chip aiding him to play.

He was rushed to the hospital but after subsequent examinations, the two parties came to an agreement to part ways.
