With the January transfer window well under way one of the best deals of the window so far may not come to fruition until the summer. FC Schalke’s prized asset Lewis Holtby has agreed a £67,000 a week deal with Tottenham Hotspur and will move to the North London side on a free transfer at the start of the summer transfer window after failing to sign a new contract with the German club.

In yesterday’s FA Cup third round match between non-league Mansfield and Liverpool, Liverpool were leading 0-1 when midway in the second half, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez was running through on goal and had a shot. The Mansfield goalkeeper came rushing out and got his body in the way of the shot. The ball ricocheted upwards, hit Suarez’s hand and went towards goal.
You can see for yourself here, pay special attention to the second gif, which shows the incident at full speed. Watch where Suarez’s arm ends up, behind his body. If he deliberately trying to push the ball forwards, his arm would have ended up in front of him.

Brighton v Newcastle
I can really see an odds upset here. Brighton have had longer to prepare for this and are off the back of a 3-0 win at Ipswich, whereas Newcastle may have hard time against Everton on Wednesday and have had a lot of injuries. A brave shout to open with I know, but: 2-0 Brighton.
Aldershot v Rotherham
An all League 2 clash. With promotion far from in the bag for the Millers (that’s Rotherham by the way), they’ll have their league form at the forefront of their minds, whereas Aldershot are at home and are far enough from relegation to afford a run in the cup. 1-0 the Shots.

If you had to offer me a prediction now, as to who will win the title this season, I would be more than inclined to say Manchester United. They’ve got a seven point lead, they’ve beaten City on their own turf and are notoriously good at doing the business in the back-end of the season.
Having said that, I don’t think they’ll win the title with total ease. Man City will still have a big gain in terms of not playing matches in Europe in midweek, they’ve got a more solid defence and the spending power to invest in January. Here are some reasons why United may struggle to finish the job in the second half of the season.

Mancini and Balotelli had to be pulled apart in training. Apparently, Mancini got furious after a ferocious tackle by Balotelli on Scott Sinclair. Surely he’s out of Man City now?
