Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi claimed a record sixth Ballon d’Or in Paris on Monday night ahead of Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.
Lionel Messi becomes the first player in footballing history to win the Ballon d’Or 6 times (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2019).
The Argentine moved one clear of Ronaldo after the pair had been locked on five awards each as he reclaimed the title he last won in 2015, with the Portuguese claiming the two subsequent gongs and Luka Modric surprisingly picking up the accolade last year to end the 10-year dominance of the two footballing icons.
This year’s victor finished astonishingly fifth in last term’s rankings and has come back with a vengeance this time around, producing a typically outstanding year in front of goal for Barca, hitting 40 strikes this calendar year and registering a further 17 assists to boot.
The forward did so in just 3516 minutes on the field, putting his club tally at slightly better than a goal or assist every 61.7 minutes.
He also claimed a tenth La Liga trophy and a Supercopa de Espana but was denied in the final of the Copa del Rey and was on the wrong end of a 4-0 battering at Anfield that saw Liverpool eventually go on to claim the Champions League title.
Messi did finish as the top scorer in both the Champions League and La Liga and has already picked up another individual prize in the form of FIFA’s ‘The Best’ Men’s award.
Chelsea Draw With West Brom After Conceding 3 Goals In First Half
Chelsea produced an impressive second half performance to avoid defeat against West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Blues came back from three goals down to draw 3-3 away from home.
In a poor first half, Chelsea conceded three goals to the newly-promoted side. One of the goals conceded was as a result of a Thiago Silva mistake.
The Brazilian, who joined Chelsea from PSG this season, was making his debut Premier League appearance.
However, academy graduates, Mason Mount, Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham scored in the second half to rescue a point for Chelsea.
They have recorded a win, a draw and a loss in their first three league games this season.
Andre Ayew scores first goal of the season for Swansea City
Ghana Blackstars Captain, Dede Ayew has scored his first goal of the season for Swansea City in their game against Wycombe Wanderers F.C.
Ayew inked the opener for his team in the 13th minute with a cool finish in their Championship match-week four fixtures at the Adams Park.
Ayew has become an important part of the team with his consistency in netting balls since his return from a loan spell at Turkish Super Lig club Fenerbahce during the 2018/19 season.
Last season, he scored 18goals in all competitions.
There are rife reports that top teams such as Paris Saint Germain, Leeds United and Everton are willing to sign him over as his contract with Swansea comes to an end in 2021.
Watch the goal below:
It's a teasing cross from Jake Bidwell and Andre Ayew is there to poke it in for Swansea to make it 1-0!
