Diego Simeone's side went ahead on the hour mark through Brazilian leftback Renan Lodi but lost their lead soon after when Granada's German Sanchez outjumped his marker Hector Herrera and sent a header crashing into the net. Simeone brought on record signing Joao Felix in search of a winner but his side barely managed to test Granada's keeper Rui Silva in the closing stages, although they were denied a penalty appeal when substitute Dario Poveda was felled in added time.
The African Player of the Year looks lean and mean and the one player who could carry the Merseyside club through these next few title-securing games that are clearly weighing heavily on their minds.

There were 16 British players in the starting XI for this match, the most in a Premier League game since February 2019 (Burnley vs Southampton, also 16). Since August 2016 when Chris Wilder took charge of the club, Sharp has scored 68 league goals for Sheffield United - 39 more than any other player in this time. What's next?Sheffield United are scheduled to only play one more match this month and that comes on Saturday, 22 February, again at Bramall Lane, with Brighton the visitors (15:00 GMT).
It has been a season to forget so far for Scunthorpe United as, following their relegation last season, they would not doubt have been looking to start strong and bounce back to League 1 as soon as possible. However, a slow start to the campaign has prevented that from occurring and that is highlighted even further by the fact that they have managed just five points away from home so far this term, a return which is the lowest in the division.
Solskjaer has come under increased pressure after back-to-back Premier League defeats by Liverpool and Burnley left them six points behind Chelsea, who occupy the fourth Champions League qualification spot.

And one more abiding memory - the fantastic sportsmanship of Bayern's fans after losing the final in their own home. Germany hammered hosts Brazil to reach the World Cup final in 2014Brazil 1-7 Germany - World Cup semi-final, Estadio Minerao, 8 July 2014When I am asked about the game and occasion I would attend again if given the chance, this would be my pick. Brazil's 2014 World Cup was about redemption, cleansing their sporting soul from the wounds of the defeat inflicted on them by Uruguay in the final in their own iconic Maracana Stadium 64 years earlier.
We’ve made a big mistake for their first goal and we are getting punished massively for that at the moment. It was a tough last 15 minutes. Villa are only two points from safety with a game in hand, but they still have to play Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolves and Sheffield United. You wouldn’t fancy them to get much from those, especially on this evidence.
Andrea Orlandi, the former Barcelona, Swansea and Brighton midfielder who is now a pundit for La Liga TV, believes the main question facing manager Ernesto Valverde is not where De Jong should fit in, but how to accommodate others around him. There is no doubt he'll start El Clasico. It's Messi and De Jong, plus nine others,\" Orlandi told BBC Sport. He's done even better than I expected and looks like he was born to play for Barcelona.
I feel good. I turn up for the games expecting to play, even when I am not on the sheet, because it is a positive mental attitude. It is something I have worked on for years. I want to pass it on. If I meet a bunch of under-12s, I would be asking me about when I saved a Messi penalty or what it's like playing for England. All they care about now is how do you deal with a mistake? How do deal with someone taunting you from behind the goal?That is not what your mindset should be as a kid.
My bet is mostly based on the fact that Greuther Furth with 38 points won so far this season is already 8 points above the bottom 3 places in the league so should feel quite safe of avoiding relegation and they have also not won that too many games lately mostly playing for the draw as every point counts for them. But for the hosts who are bottom in the league but with two games less played than the rest of the pack only the win counts for them to avoid relegation.
We think that St Mirren double chance is a good shout here, as the hosts have only lost once at home this season to Rangers, avoiding defeat in the other 5 games, drawing twice with Hamilton and Hearts as well as defeating Aberdeen, St Johnstone and Ross County. Hibs have already amassed 6 draws this season, 3 of which were on their travels and the other 2 ended 1-1. The Hibees have also conceded 1.6 times in their away trips since being thrashed by Rangers 6-1, which is why we're also going for a final score of 1-1.
Former England keeper Rob Green, speaking to BBC Sport, said Klopp's decision not to field his senior players and stay away was \"clever mind games\". Coming from Germany, he thinks we're crazy playing all these games, so it's a really interesting quandary and one where you're thinking he's got the upper ground here,\" added Green.

Incheon have managed to avoid relegation last season and their main goal this season will be the same to stay in K League. They will not have an easy job at start of the season because they will host Daegu one of the good teams. However home side will to their best in order to stay unbeaten
Probably it will be a lot of goals in this match from Tajikistan elite league and that is pretty real to expect, but we will see what will happen. In any case, I must said for a start, that home team is in last official duel against this rival played match in who was 3-0, and also, current form of this rivals is said that this will be efficient duel. In last three matches, Marw is played 1-2, 0-4 and 3-1, so it is pretty natural and real to expect similar story and this time. Of course, I will try.

What they are doing is where United want to be. Arsenal v West HamI was imperative West Ham beat Southampton last week, and they did. That has given them something to build on. I fancy the Hammers to get something this time too. I know Hammers boss David Moyes has never won a league game at Arsenal in 15 attempts, but I am taking him out of the equation. Their tails will be up, there will be a decent atmosphere because it is a London derby, and, if they go for it a bit, this might just be their time now where they can pick up some positive results.
