Hello, Kickabout fans,

the weekend is here,

0:00:260:00:28

and with it comes plenty of footy

action to look forward to.

0:00:280:00:31

The FA Cup is back,

plus there are some exciting

0:00:310:00:34

European games to catch up

on from earlier this week.

0:00:340:00:42

And we've got all this lot

coming up on today's show.

0:00:450:00:48

I reveal my top tips

on how Manchester City

0:00:480:00:50

superstar Kevin De Bruyne can

improve your game.

0:00:500:00:52

Find out which FA Cup

legend you chose for this

0:00:520:00:55

week's Top Tekkers vote.

0:00:550:00:57

And Alex Scott takes on the

Kickabout Hat-trick Challenge.

0:00:570:01:01

Can Alex take the top spot

from Tekkers Kid on our leaderboard?

0:01:010:01:03

Keep watching to find out.

0:01:030:01:07

Let's kick things off by checking

out the big stories making

0:01:070:01:09

the headlines this week.

0:01:090:01:14

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos

missed this absolute sitter last

0:01:140:01:16

weekend in their game against Ayr

United.

0:01:160:01:20

Talk about a howler!

0:01:200:01:22

Luckily for Alfredo,

he then went on to score

0:01:220:01:24

twice to lead his team

to an eventual 6-1 victory.

0:01:240:01:32

This week saw some fantastic goals

over within the women's

0:01:320:01:36

Super League, including this stunner

from Ji So Yun in Chelsea's 2-0 win

0:01:360:01:39

over Birmingham City.

0:01:390:01:47

Victory wasn't enough to take them

top of the table, though,

0:01:490:01:51

as a Nikita Parris double helped

Manchester City thrash Liverpool 4-0

0:01:510:01:54

to stay two points clear at the top.

0:01:540:01:56

Whilst in-form Arsenal moved up to

third with victory over Yeovil town.

0:01:560:01:59

The Gunners were on winning form

in the Europa League

0:01:590:02:01

as well, as they won 3-0.

0:02:010:02:06

And Celtic earned a deserved victory

against Zenit Saint Petersburg.

0:02:060:02:11

In the Champions League,

Mane scored a hat-trick to help

0:02:110:02:14

Liverpool thrash Porto 5-0

in their last 16 first leg tie,

0:02:140:02:16

whilst Real Madrid came

from behind to beat PSG 3-1.

0:02:160:02:24

Spurs produced a brilliant comeback

to draw 2-2 at Juventus

0:02:300:02:32

after going down 2-0

inside ten minutes.

0:02:320:02:34

Harry Kane started the fight back

before Eriksen added the equaliser.

0:02:340:02:36

And finally, Pp's men took a huge

step towards the quarterfinals

0:02:360:02:39

with a 4-0 victory over Basel.

0:02:390:02:41

And finally, Pep's men took a huge

step towards the quarterfinals

0:02:410:02:43

with a 4-0 victory over Basel.

0:02:430:02:46

The goals just keep on coming

from Manchester city.

0:02:460:02:48

It has been an amazing

season so far.

0:02:480:02:52

The goals just keep on coming

from Manchester City.

0:02:520:02:54

It has been an amazing

season so far.

0:02:540:02:56

They lead the Premier League by 16

points, are on course for the next

0:02:560:02:59

round of the Champions League,

remain in the FA Cup

0:02:590:03:01

and could win their first silverware

of the season if they beat Arsenal

0:03:010:03:05

in the EFL Cup Final next weekend.

0:03:050:03:06

And while the whole team

is in fantastic form,

0:03:060:03:08

there is one player from me who has

got it all.

0:03:080:03:11

And it is this guy.

0:03:110:03:12

Kevin De Bruyne.

0:03:120:03:13

De Bruyne.

0:03:130:03:14

Only one get to it...

0:03:140:03:16

But it is back with Kevin De Bruyne!

0:03:160:03:17

Manchester City's magical midfield

maestro is one of the best players

0:03:170:03:20

in the world at the moment.

0:03:200:03:22

This man would have stood

out for anybody today.

0:03:220:03:24

He was absolutely superb.

0:03:240:03:25

And De Bruyne still might get on it.

0:03:250:03:28

De Bruyne can do it all

on a football pitch.

0:03:280:03:31

He can play in any midfield

or attacking positions,

0:03:310:03:34

making him one of the best technical

players that the Premier

0:03:340:03:37

League has ever seen.

0:03:370:03:38

So if you want to improve your game

on the pitch, then Kevin De Bruyne

0:03:380:03:42

is the perfect player

to model your game on.

0:03:420:03:45

Kevin De Bruyne!

0:03:450:03:49

First chance of the game

that he has had!

0:03:490:03:54

De Bruyne can play as a number ten

on the left or right of a front

0:03:540:03:58

three and can also operate

in a deeper midfield role.

0:03:580:04:01

This allows him to see

where the the pockets of space

0:04:010:04:04

are to run into and also

where to deliver the

0:04:040:04:06

ball when he gets it.

0:04:060:04:12

He knows when to be disciplined,

when to run with the ball

0:04:120:04:15

and when to control the game

with his passing.

0:04:150:04:17

When you are in midfield and have

possession of the ball,

0:04:170:04:20

your main objective is to find

the space, but more importantly,

0:04:200:04:22

know how to use it effectively.

0:04:220:04:30

Get into the habit of looking right,

looking left and looking behind

0:04:340:04:37

you before you receive the ball.

0:04:370:04:38

You're already one step ahead

in knowing what to do next.

0:04:380:04:41

Remember, awareness on the football

pitch means intelligence

0:04:410:04:43

on the football pitch.

0:04:430:04:44

Manchester City fans rise

to their feet to applaud

0:04:440:04:46

their brilliant Belgian.

0:04:460:04:47

De Bruyne has unbelievable technique

and has complete mastery of the ball

0:04:470:04:50

when it is at his feet.

0:04:500:04:52

His first touch always

allows him options.

0:04:520:04:53

He can control using any

and every part of his body,

0:04:530:04:56

being equally comfortable

on his left foot as

0:04:560:04:58

he is on his right.

0:04:580:04:59

To become a technical

player like De Bruyne,

0:04:590:05:01

you need to try and work

on perfecting your ball control.

0:05:010:05:04

You can do this by, number one,

practising to control the ball

0:05:040:05:06

from height with both feet.

0:05:060:05:14

Number two, using a wall to practise

controlling the ball.

0:05:180:05:20

Number three, work on developing

your trickery and tekkers,

0:05:200:05:23

so you've always got a skill to use

in the game when you need it.

0:05:230:05:26

And always remember,

if you practise your technique

0:05:260:05:28

on both feet, you'll become

a better all-round player.

0:05:280:05:30

His final ball is tremendous.

0:05:300:05:31

His set plays, they're

always on the money.

0:05:310:05:33

De Bruyne will go down in history

as one of the best modern-day

0:05:330:05:37

passers of the ball.

0:05:370:05:37

And from De Bruyne!

0:05:370:05:39

His execution, to see a pass

and then execute it,

0:05:390:05:41

it's on another level.

0:05:410:05:43

De Bruyne, what a ball that is.

0:05:430:05:47

When you're practising your passing,

concentrate on getting

0:05:470:05:49

a good body posture,

so you're not leaning back.

0:05:490:05:57

See with your eyes where you want

to play the pass and then

0:05:580:06:01

concentrate on getting a good strike

in connection with the ball.

0:06:010:06:04

Once you find your technique,

focus on trying to hit

0:06:040:06:06

a target over and over again

to improve your accuracy.

0:06:060:06:11

De Bruyne has had more assists

than any other player

0:06:110:06:13

in the Premier League this season.

0:06:130:06:15

And a key reason for this

is that he is an expert when it

0:06:150:06:18

comes to set pieces.

0:06:180:06:19

He will leave the free

kick to the Belgian.

0:06:190:06:21

What a free kick!

0:06:210:06:22

That was all in the delivery,

which was delicious.

0:06:220:06:28

Corners and free kicks?

0:06:280:06:29

He can do it all.

0:06:290:06:30

Here comes the Belgian.

0:06:300:06:31

Simple as that.

0:06:310:06:40

When taking corners,

focus on delivering the ball

0:06:400:06:42

into this area, which is known

as the second six-yard box.

0:06:420:06:45

The area between the

goalkeeper and defence.

0:06:450:06:47

It's a great header!

0:06:470:06:48

Swing it into that specific area

and you'll be taking corners

0:06:480:06:50

like KDB in no time.

0:06:500:06:52

When it comes to free kicks,

it's the same principle.

0:06:520:06:55

Practise over and over again

with the same technique,

0:06:550:06:56

but from different positions

on the pitch.

0:06:560:06:58

Find your connection and use

the Kevin De Bruyne technique.

0:06:580:07:06

Great ball.

0:07:060:07:07

Kevin De Bruyne!

0:07:070:07:08

Kevin De Bruyne is not just

a world-class player,

0:07:080:07:10

because he can assist goals,

he can also score any type of goal

0:07:100:07:13

from anywhere on pitch.

0:07:130:07:14

Super goal scored

by Kevin De Bruyne!

0:07:140:07:17

He predominately uses a side foot

technique as well as striking

0:07:170:07:19

the ball with his laces,

which enables him to get

0:07:190:07:22

pinpoint accuracy, but also

lots of power as well.

0:07:220:07:24

When it comes to finishing,

try to strike the ball

0:07:240:07:26

into the areas of the goal

which are difficult

0:07:260:07:29

for the goalkeeper to reach.

0:07:290:07:34

Practise taking touches out

of your feet and use

0:07:340:07:36

the De Bruyne side foot technique

to find the corners.

0:07:360:07:39

Then once you have started

to get your aim, do the same thing,

0:07:390:07:42

but go back about 20 yards,

to make the distance greater.

0:07:420:07:45

This means, when you through

on or receive the ball

0:07:450:07:47

on the edge of the box,

you will naturally know what to do

0:07:470:07:50

next, just like De Bruyne.

0:07:500:07:51

It's a brilliant ball.

0:07:510:07:52

De Bruyne 1-0 Manchester City.

0:07:520:07:57

I hope that has inspired you to

bring some of Kevin De Bruyne's

0:07:570:08:00

skills into your own performances

on the pitch.

0:08:000:08:02

I would love to see them!

0:08:020:08:10

So if you do pull off any moves

that the Belgian midfield

0:08:120:08:14

maestro would be proud of,

get in touch and send us a video.

0:08:140:08:18

Just like this bunch have done.

0:08:180:08:19

Here's Preston nailing a free kick

right in the top corner!

0:08:190:08:22

He's a big Villa fan

and loves playing football

0:08:220:08:24

morning, noon and night!

0:08:240:08:31

Man City fan Arthur showing off

some cheeky moves here,

0:08:310:08:33

and finishing up with a nice

little back heel!

0:08:330:08:36

Your favourite player

John Stones would love

0:08:360:08:38

those skills, I'm sure,

Arthur!

0:08:380:08:41

What a free kick from Jack from

Red House Farm Kestrels Under 9s!

0:08:410:08:44

He's a big Newcastle

fan and was very happy

0:08:440:08:46

with their victory over

Man United last weekend.

0:08:460:08:51

And another free kick

here from Alexander

0:08:510:08:53

for Westwood Juniors Under 9s -

what a strike!

0:08:530:08:55

And what a celebration!

0:08:550:09:01

Oscar here setting up Charlie

on goal, and he nails

0:09:010:09:04

it top right corner!

0:09:040:09:05

Great team work, you two!

0:09:050:09:08

And finally Dylan, with a fantastic

flick over the defenders head,

0:09:080:09:11

and bang straight into the goal!

0:09:110:09:16

No wonder he's off celebrating!

0:09:160:09:17

What a solo effort there!

0:09:170:09:23

With skills like that, Dylan,

I'm pretty sure you'd be higher

0:09:230:09:26

than me on the Hat-trick Challenge

leaderboard right now

0:09:260:09:28

if you were to give it a go.

0:09:280:09:31

Tekkers Kid is currently sitting

pretty at the top, but this week,

0:09:310:09:34

we have challenged Kickabout's very

own Alex Scott to take on the bins.

0:09:340:09:37

Let's see how she got on.

0:09:370:09:41

Hi, I'm Alex Scott,

Match Of The Day Kickabout

0:09:410:09:47

presenter and I'm about to do

the Hat-trick Challenge,

0:09:470:09:49

and I'm slightly nervous,

more so than when I played

0:09:490:09:52

in the World Cup.

0:09:520:09:55

Let's give this a try.

0:09:550:09:56

Right, first up, first one...

0:09:560:10:00

Oh.

0:10:000:10:02

SHE LAUGHS.

0:10:020:10:03

It's the pressure,

it's the pressure.

0:10:030:10:05

Oh, jeez.

0:10:050:10:09

Like, take your time,

compose yourself.

0:10:090:10:11

That didn't work.

0:10:110:10:14

I don't know which one to go for.

0:10:140:10:17

How about that one?

0:10:170:10:18

We'll go for that one.

0:10:180:10:20

OK.

0:10:200:10:21

Deep breath.

0:10:210:10:26

Two out of three, not

bad, I'll take that.

0:10:260:10:28

See you later.

0:10:280:10:33

No wonder you'll take that, Alex!

0:10:330:10:35

Those two bins put you joint top

of the leaderboard with Tekkers Kid.

0:10:350:10:39

Nice one.

0:10:390:10:43

Moving on now to this weekend,

and the FA Cup action returns.

0:10:430:10:46

There are six games to look

forward to after last

0:10:460:10:48

night saw Leicester,

Sheffield United, Chelsea

0:10:480:10:50

and Hull all in action.

0:10:500:10:52

In the late kick-off,

Huddersfield take on Man United

0:10:520:10:56

with the Terriers hoping to reach

the quarterfinals for the first

0:10:560:10:58

time in over 40 years.

0:10:580:10:59

Whilst Rochdale will be hoping

to pull off a shock victory

0:10:590:11:02

in their match against Spurs.

0:11:020:11:07

The Monday night game sees City

travel to Wigan and whilst many

0:11:070:11:10

will fancy the League One team

as underdogs, don't

0:11:100:11:13

write them off just now.

0:11:130:11:16

The Latics have won their last six

FA Cup games at home,

0:11:160:11:19

with three of those

against Premier league sides.

0:11:190:11:23

with three of those

against Premier League sides.

0:11:230:11:25

And let's stick with League One

for the first of this week's footy

0:11:250:11:33

footy photos you sent in.

0:11:330:11:34

Check out Northampton Town fan Hari.

0:11:340:11:35

He plays as a striker

for the under-8s multi-disability

0:11:350:11:37

team and he is pictured

here with one of his favourite

0:11:370:11:40

first-team players, Sam Foley.

0:11:400:11:41

George plays for Wallsend

under sevens and trains

0:11:410:11:43

at Middlesbrough Academy,

where he does the famous Shearer

0:11:430:11:45

celebration after every goal.

0:11:450:11:46

And when his class were asked

to dress as their favourite

0:11:460:11:49

superhero, footy-obsessed George

chose the Geordie legend.

0:11:490:11:57

Emilia and Teddy both play

for Berkhamsted Raiders and love

0:11:570:11:59

watching Kickabout every week.

0:11:590:12:03

And get this, last weekend,

they were both named Player

0:12:030:12:05

of the Match in their games.

0:12:050:12:06

Well done, you two.

0:12:060:12:10

Chelsea fan Harrison

won Man of the Match

0:12:100:12:12

in his under-7s game last Saturday.

0:12:120:12:13

Proof, he says, that hard work

and practice pay off.

0:12:130:12:16

I agree with that one.

0:12:160:12:24

And finally, it's smiles

all round for Stotfold Junior

0:12:240:12:26

under-11 girls ahead of their first

tournament final against

0:12:260:12:28

Luton All Stars under-11s.

0:12:280:12:29

Their team started out as a handful

of friends three years ago

0:12:290:12:32

and they have gone from strength

to strength ever since.

0:12:320:12:38

And the girls tell us their team

ethos is, "We play for each other".

0:12:380:12:41

I love that!

0:12:410:12:42

We are focusing on the big

game next Sunday between

0:13:000:13:03

Man United and Chelsea.

0:13:030:13:07

And specifically, these two former

Gunners, who have made moves

0:13:070:13:09

towards Trafford and Stamford Bridge

in last month's transfer window.

0:13:090:13:12

Alexis Sanchez...

0:13:120:13:13

Sanchez!

0:13:130:13:14

Sanchez has scored!

0:13:140:13:20

Or Olivier Giroud.
