Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netUST had the misfortune of facing the top two teams in the league, Ateneo and La Salle, in the same week and this led to its record plummeting to a sorry 0-6.Bright spots are hard to come by in the Growling Tigers season but wingman Jordan Sta. Ana tries to change that.Sta. Ana is not a shooter, and he knows it, with practically all of his points coming from drives and free throws and he averaged 17.5 points this week while putting his body on the line against the Blue Eagles and Green Archers’ frontlines.

He, then, followed it up with a decent 12-point outing against FEU.Honorable mentionsChibueze Ikeh (Ateneo Blue Eagles)Chi Ikeh.

Giroud and Arnautovic are better finishers than Kane, says talkSPORT caller

first_img“You’ve got Arnautovic and if you have Giroud on a good day he’s better, I’m not even going to talk about Sergio Aguero or Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino Sadio Mane or Jamie Vardy, there are so many players above Kane at the moment.“He CAN be the best. He isn’t at the moment but he can be.”Kane has 114 Premier League goals in 165 appearances for Spurs.And although Arnautovic has been in good goalscoring form since joining West Ham, he only has 38 goals in 160 appearances in English football. 2 Kane scored the winning goal during England’s Nations League win over Croatia on Sunday 2 Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? 😡 “Harry Kane isn’t even in the top 10 finishers in the Premier League.”🎯 “Arnautović and Giroud are better. Tottenham is not the place to be.”This call from Ash the Arsenal fan left @SamMatterface in disbelief 😳😳 pic.twitter.com/MiYui2ueF9— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) November 19, 2018It’s not all a one-sided view from Arsenal supporters, though, with Gunners legend telling talkSPORT Kane is likely to eventually surpass Wayne Rooney as England’s greatest goal getter.Rooney finished his international career with 53 goals in 120 games, while Kane has already scored 20 in 35 matches, including six in the 2018 World Cup to take home the Golden Boot. It all started when Matterface put forward the question to listeners on whether Kane was the best finisher in the world following his heroics during England’s Nations League win over Croatia on Sunday.And Ash certainly had plenty to say for himself when he made his appearance on national radio.He said: “There are at least about five players better than him [Kane] at finishing; I’m not even going to talk about the trophies he HASN’T won yet.“He’s not even in the top ten finishers in the Premier League at the moment.
