David Moyes must defy the odds if Sunderland are to turn it around

The FC panel look at the congested relegation fight in the Prem and if anyone has a hope of making a resurgence. Sunderland will attempt to steer their Premier League survival campaign back on course at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday after a bitterly disappointing run of six games they never showed signs of winning. The hope inspired by a sequence of four wins in seven games, ending with a 1-0 home victory over Watford on Dec. 17, has all but vanished. Weakened by injuries and an alarming lack of depth, as well as absences at the African Nations Cup, Sunderland are back in dire trouble, relegation looking...

Quiz! How many of Belgium?s 2013 squad can you name?

With Yannick Carrasco in the news on Thursday morning, TEAMtalk thought we’d test your knowledge on Belgian football.

The Atletico Madrid star has been linked with an £86million move to Chelsea, and while his buy-out clause is a little extreme, it does emphasise just how good Belgian football has become in recent years.

TEAMtalk has linked up with Sporcle to bring you the quiz, which will test your knowledge to the limit.

Although 2013 was before Carrasco’s Belgium breakthrough, we’re asking you to name the 23 players who did make up their squad in 2013.

It’s certainly far harder than it sounds – especially when you’re up against the clock.

Use the story comment facility box, below, to let us know how you fare.

Paper Talk: Man Utd want 70m man to supply Griezmann; Carrisco link

Manchester United will spend £70million on a supply line for Antoine Griezmann, while Chelsea are hot on the trail of Yannick Carrasco, all in today’s papers.

 

UNITED LINE UP SILVA TO SUPPLY GRIEZMANN 

Manchester United are planning to make a £70million move for Monaco midfielder Bernardo Silva this summer, according to a report.

The 22-year-old is the man that Jose Mourinho wants to load the bullets for Antoine Griezmann, who is another summer target, report The Sun in an exclusive.

Real Madrid are also keen on the attacking midfielder and United face a battle to sign Silva, who is managed by the agent of Mourinho, Jorge Mendes.

“United already plan to land Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann at the end of the season in an £85m deal,” says the tabloid and they will also spend big on Silva.

He joined Monaco from Benfica for £14million deal after a loan-spell in the Principality. He can play across the midfield and has 4 goals and 4 assists this season.

The Portugal international joined Monaco from Benfica in January 2015 for £14million after a loan-spell in the Principality and is under contract until June 2020.

The playmaker can play across the midfield and has scored four goals and created four assists this season.

United were reportedly keeping an eye on Silva back in May 2016, according to Spanish title Super Deporte.

CHELSEA TARGET CARRASCO

 

Chelsea are among a number of clubs keen on Atletico Madrid star Yannick Carrasco, according to the Daily Star. 

The report claims Chelsea are interested the 23-year-old winger as are both Manchester giants, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

The forward only penned a new new Atletico deal in October though and is under contract with the club until 2022, but if fellow stars Antoine Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro move on then Belgium star Carrasco may also decide to depart.

Carrasco is believed to have an £86million buyout clause in his current contract.

Defoe ?still a target? for West Ham despite Hogan breakthrough

West Ham United could be set to make another approach for Jermain Defoe, providing he asks to leave Sunderland.

This is according to a report from the Daily Mail, who claim Defoe is still a top target for the East Londoners.

However, in order for the Hammers to go back with an improved bid, he would have to hand in a transfer request.

Recent rumours suggest that West Ham had turned their attention to Brentford’s Scott Hogan, with the Mail also claiming that there had been a breakthrough in talks.

The deal to bring Hogan to the London Stadium is edging nearer as the two teams are getting closer to a agreeing a fee.

The report also claims that West Ham have enquired about Southampton’s Shane Long and seen a bid for Hull winger Robert Snodgrass rejected.
