Hot Seat - Who Is Stealing The Headlines In Europe?

The Fan Park crew has launched a new feature for every Monday, where we will look at the winners, the biggest losers, the biggest topic of discussions, as well as the ‘who said what’ from this weekend’s fixtures in Europe.

Winners – Manchester United

In terms of what was at stake, United’s win was the biggest of the weekend as Louis Van Gaal’s men will take great confidence heading into their tricky run of fixtures. Another reason why we picked their 3-0 win over Tottenham as our best, is because of what it means to Red Devil fans, especially after their FA Cup exit where they lost to Arsenal.

Losers – Manchester City                                                

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are our biggest loser, as they threw ridiculous points away to Burnley, a team 16 places below them. Although Chelsea never fully capitalized on their loss, City are now six points behind the league leaders, while Jose Mourinho’s side still has a game in hand. If City had won, there would only be three points separating the sides.

Topic Of Discussion – Cristiano Ronaldo Doesn’t Celebrate Bale’s Brace

The weekend saw Real Madrid’s world-record signing, Gareth Bale, break his goalless run by scoring a brace as Real beat Levante 2-0. The Portuguese forward was visibly frustrated during the game, not looking overly-pleased by Bale’s goals, although he played a hand in both goals. Was Cristiano Ronaldo annoyed with Bale stepping in to his limelight, or is the 30-year-old jealous of him?

Who Said What? – Zlatan Ibrahimovic

After Paris Saint-Germain lost 3-2 to Bordeaux in the French Ligue 1, Zlatan Ibrahimovic fumed after he thought the match official had made some horrible calls, even slamming the country for it!

Zlatan said: "In 15 years, I have never seen a referee like that. In this s****y country. This country doesn't deserve PSG.”

Player Who Needs Improving – Cesc Fabregas

The Spanish midfielder, who joined the Blues at the start of the season, began the campaign like a house on fire, but has recently faded in Chelsea’s title bid. The 27-year-old has only made one assist in his last eight games for Mourinho’s side, while he hasn’t scored in his last eleven. Although he is at the top of the assist charts in the league with 15, he’ll need to find his form to help Chelsea lift the title and do the double.
