Covering the Premier League, the Championship, LaLiga, and a healthy dose of the Scottish Premiership too.

This Sky Sports interview got pretty awkward.

The audio is not the greatest on this video so here’s the TL;DR version: the Sky Sports interviewer kept dodging Marcelo Bielsa’s question, so when it became clear that the Leeds United manager was not otherwise going to answer his deflective questions, he ended the interview.

Dedication to the cause.

Celtic beat Dundee with a 96th minute Odsonne Edouard goal at the weekend.
We found out there’s no such thing as an easy game.
Unless of course you’re Man City and seem to get all of the easy draws.
Bloody hell, no wonder Man City are in with a sniff of the Quadruple – here are their cup runs so far:
League Cup: Oxford Utd, Fulham, Leicester, Burton Albion, Chelsea
FA Cup: Rotherham, Burnley, Newport County, Swansea, Brighton
Europe: Lyon, Shakhtar, Hoffenheim, Schalke

And who better to finish up with than Lionel Messi.
The Argentine genius completed his hat-trick with this outrageously good finish during Barcelona’s 4-1 win over Real Betis in LaLiga. Good luck next month, United.
| GOAL! |
MESSI HAS HIS HAT-TRICK ?
That finish is ridiculous, superlatives will never do this man justice. pic.twitter.com/oiuUTuESf5
