Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez is set to reunite with his former manager Carlo Ancelotti at the Goodison Park, as Everton are expected to complete the signing of the Colombian.

 

Ancelotti signed James for Real Madrid after the midfielder impressed at the 2014 FIFA World Cup for Columbia.

Arsenal v Liverpool

The community shield is here again as the Wembley Stadium will be hosting the battle between Premier League champions Liverpool and FA Cup winners Arsenal on Saturday.

 

In the last 52 meetings between these two teams, Arsenal won 20 games, while Liverpool won 15 and 17 ended in a draw. The Gunners picked up their first victory over the Reds since Jurgen Klopp took over in the 2-1 win last season.

 

Dani Ceballos is not an Arsenal player, for now, Lucas Torreira, Mateo Guendouzi, and Mohamed Elneny have all been linked with summer moves and may not play. Bernd Leno is expected to get the nod after recovering from injury.

 

Trent Alexander-Arnold didn't travel to Austria for Liverpool's pre-season trip and is unlikely to start here. Jordan Henderson is back in full training. Virgil van Dijk suffered a head injury in Liverpool's draw with Salzburg on Tuesday but should be fine.

 

Who do you think will win?

Former Naija Super Eagles striker wants to buy club in England

Former Naija Super Eagles striker, Victor Anichebe reveals his plans on buying a football club in England, in other to change the way blacks are viewed after he was pulled over by Merseyside police.

 

The former Naija striker, who made 11 appearances for the Super Eagles between 2008 and 2011, revealed that he was a victim of racial profiling after he was stopped by police while driving his car last week on Merseyside.

 

In an interview with SkySports, the 32-year-old believes if players can get into administrative positions and become CEOs or sporting directors or even buy clubs, they can change the wan black players are viewed.

 

Anichebe said: “We have to have a seat at the table to really effect change. We can’t try and affect change from the outside and looking in. I have seen a couple of players say they want to become CEOs or sporting directors and I think that is what we need to do.. I don’t see why we can’t all come together [as players] and buy clubs. I do think that is another way to really affect change. Instead of wanting change, we can be the change ourselves.”
