It was an exciting day of football at Goodison Park as Roberto Martinez’s Everton took on Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea. Striker Diego Costa did not train much the past week and was on the injured list before the game, but was named to the starting lineup anyway. In spite of the injury concerns, Costa gave Chelsea an early lead after just 36 seconds after kick-off, putting a through-ball from Cesc Fabregas in between the legs of American keeper, Tim Howard. Everton’s hope of winning their first three points seemed to fade away, when after that early goal and with just three minutes gone…

What's going on with Justin Verlander? If you have been checking up on any kind of social media site there is a big chance you already know.

Atlanta's slugger Justin Upton has recently been a key contributor for the Braves as they continue their hunt for a playoff spot.

The Braves are still very alive and Justin Upton has been a main…

  Two frustrated sides, poor technique, tactical fouls, 7 yellow cards, plays down the wings, and more failed crosses into the box than any other approach on goal. This is the breakdown of a terrible 90 minutes of football at the Omnilife Stadium, where Club Deportive Guadalajara faced off against one of their biggest rivals, Cruz Azul in what I personally describe as a glorified match of playground kick ball. There were only three chances on goal in the first half. The first of these was in favor of Chivas and came in the 4th minute from a corner kick.…
