Hello, footie fans.

0:00:250:00:26

December is here, the festive period

is fast approaching,

0:00:260:00:28

and that means a packed calendar

of footie to look forward to.

0:00:280:00:31

Yes, the games are

coming thick and fast.

0:00:310:00:35

Luckily, there is plenty to enjoy

on this week's Kickabout.

0:00:350:00:41

Here is what's coming up:

Ahead of today's big name

0:00:410:00:45

between Arsenal and Man Utd,

we look at one of the key players,

0:00:450:00:48

Mesut Ozil, and give you some top

tips on how his skills can

0:00:480:00:51

improve your game.

0:00:510:00:55

There's loads of fantastic videos

and pictures from you lot at home.

0:00:550:00:58

And, check out our top five ones

to watch when it comes to footie

0:00:580:01:02

superstars of the future.

0:01:020:01:07

So, plenty of action to come,

and let's kick things off

0:01:070:01:10

by checking out this

week's headline hitters.

0:01:100:01:13

England women scored

four goals in 12 minutes

0:01:160:01:19

as they thrashed Kazakhstan 5-0

to maintain their perfect start

0:01:190:01:23

to World Cup qualifying.

0:01:230:01:26

Nikita Parris scored twice,

including this corker,

0:01:260:01:28

to leave England second in Group 1,

one point behind Wales who beat

0:01:280:01:33

Bosnia 1-0 on Tuesday,

and have one more game.

0:01:330:01:37

Elsewhere, Northern Ireland

gained their first point

0:01:370:01:40

of the qualifying campaign

after beating Slovakia 3-1.

0:01:400:01:47

And, two former Premier League

managers return to action this week.

0:01:470:01:51

Everton confirmed Sam Allardyce

as their new manager

0:01:510:01:53

after a five-week search

for a successor, and West Brom

0:01:530:01:57

appointed former Newcastle

and Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew.

0:01:570:02:00

Can we expect moves like this

if they start to pick up form?

0:02:000:02:04

I hope not for everyone's sake!

0:02:040:02:10

Dad dancing at its worst.

0:02:100:02:13

Alan Pardew faces a tough test

for his first game in charge

0:02:130:02:17

as he welcomes his first club

Crystal Palace.

0:02:170:02:20

What an atmosphere

that promises to be.

0:02:200:02:23

Elsewhere, today's early kick-off

sees Chelsea welcome

0:02:230:02:26

Newcastle to Stamford Bridge,

and tomorrow there is

0:02:260:02:31

the south coast derby

between Bournemouth and Southampton.

0:02:310:02:33

Plus, City take on West Ham.

0:02:330:02:37

The big game of the weekend

is the late kick-off

0:02:370:02:40

at the Emirates today

between Arsenal and Man United.

0:02:400:02:43

For us, this man could be a game

changer for the Gunners.

0:02:430:02:46

If he is in top form,

Mesut Ozil is a proven matchwinner.

0:02:460:02:51

He was superb on Wednesday,

scoring and providing two assists

0:02:510:02:54

to help Arsenal make it seven wins

from seven Premier League

0:02:540:02:58

home games this season.

0:02:580:03:01

What skills does it take to pull off

moments of Mesut Ozil magic?

0:03:010:03:07

Very aware. Brilliant from Mesut

Ozil!

Brilliant, measured pass.

0:03:170:03:24

Mesut Ozil is the king of assists.

In fact, since arriving in England

0:03:240:03:29

four years ago, he has created more

chances than any other Premier

0:03:290:03:35

League player, and more assists.

There is so much we can learn from

0:03:350:03:38

him. Follow these steps and you will

be creating chances galore for your

0:03:380:03:42

team-mates every week. Perfect your

technique. Technique is all about

0:03:420:03:51

how you pick and control the ball.

Just look at this, he is completely

0:03:510:03:57

comfortable with the ball and makes

it look so easy. But remember,

0:03:570:04:03

practice and dedication gotten

there. Why not work harder to make

0:04:030:04:09

your technique good? And if it is

good, work even harder to make it

0:04:090:04:13

great. That is what Mesut Ozil did

as a kid growing up in Germany. Know

0:04:130:04:19

what is around you. When you watch

him, it is like he has got 360

0:04:190:04:26

degrees vision, almost like he has

eyes in the back of his head. Look

0:04:260:04:30

at this against Leicester,

absolutely ridiculous. The key to

0:04:300:04:33

this skill is to be constantly aware

of what is around you when you have

0:04:330:04:36

not got the ball. If you know where

your team-mates and opponents are,

0:04:360:04:39

when you get the ball, you are one

step ahead. It is your time to shine

0:04:390:04:44

and you know what to do with it.

Split the defence. Mesut Ozil

0:04:440:04:52

creates so many chances for his

team-mates because he is always

0:04:520:04:54

looking for the killer ball, he is

world class at finding space and

0:04:540:05:01

executing a perfectly weighted pass,

whether it is rolling the ball

0:05:010:05:04

through on the ground, or hitting it

over the top. Look at this assist

0:05:040:05:08

with Theo Walcott. Absolutely

perfect. Look for a team-mate to

0:05:080:05:14

make a run into space, and then hit

the ball through to them. Remember,

0:05:140:05:19

don't pass it to their feet, it it

into the space they are running

0:05:190:05:22

into. This is what Mesut Ozil does

so well and defenders just can't

0:05:220:05:26

handle it. Make runs. Some fans with

size him for being lazy, but that is

0:05:260:05:35

not true. Look at this. Mesut Ozil

realises he can't split the defence

0:05:350:05:39

himself because they are too deep so

he knocks the ball to a team-mate

0:05:390:05:45

and makes an amazing run into the

box. Look around the pitch, if you

0:05:450:05:51

find some space, sprint into it and

this will make you such a better

0:05:510:05:55

player and your team-mates will love

you. Be creative. Mesut Ozil is one

0:05:550:06:03

of the most creative players on the

planet, that is why he has played

0:06:030:06:07

for teams like Real Madrid and won

so much silverware. Doing something

0:06:070:06:12

different, or doing something

special, is what can lift your game

0:06:120:06:15

to a new level. Just like Mesut

Ozil, never be afraid to do

0:06:150:06:20

something out of the ordinary. It

might be a nightmare, a twist, a

0:06:200:06:24

term, something to get you away from

the man, or an amazing flick that

0:06:240:06:29

sets up a goal. It won't always

work, but when it does, the fans

0:06:290:06:33

will be cheering you on. The key is

confidence. Stay confident, have

0:06:330:06:40

faith in your ability and you never

know what might happen, you might

0:06:400:06:43

even win the World Cup!

Everything

he touches seems to turn to gold!

0:06:430:06:51

Great advice, thank you. All you

Arsenal fans will have hope to see

0:06:560:07:03

this skills like that today. We had

strike!

He is warming up for a

European title.

And that is a header from Pogba just

when it mattered.

It is Pogba, it is

0:07:370:07:46

2-0 to Manchester United.

Well hit

0:07:460:08:02

0:08:020:08:06

It comes Lindgaard, he was trying to

0:08:180:08:27

What a player. And the big games

keep coming for Pogba and his United

0:08:270:08:33

team-mate as next weekend is the

City travel to Old Trafford for the

0:08:330:08:37

big Manchester derby. That is one of

three local clashes to look forward

0:08:370:08:40

to. Their results of the London and

Liverpool Derbys, talk about a

0:08:400:08:45

mouthwatering weekend of football

action. It is the last of those we

0:08:450:08:48

derby at Anfield. We want you to

0:08:480:08:54

vote for your favourite between

these two. Adam Lallana.

Wayne

0:08:540:09:00

Rooney. Unbelievable! Remember the

name, Wayne Rooney!

favourite player, sending us a photo

on all sharing us your skills, just

0:09:380:09:43

like this lot have done.

0:09:430:09:46

This is Southampton fan Cameron.

Waltzing through the opposition

0:09:490:09:56

before a very smart finish, and that

is one of 25 goals this season. What

0:09:560:10:05

about that? Lovely goal after a

cracking tackle. The Arsenal fans

0:10:050:10:09

really showing us how it is done.

Now Lucas with a lovely chip into

0:10:090:10:13

that net. Lucas has nailed it. Here

is thinly with a rainbow flick into

0:10:130:10:22

the washing up basket. You don't get

cleaner than that!

0:10:220:10:29

Top stuff, and sticking with super

skilled youngsters, with the

0:10:290:10:33

December fixture list looking

heavier than ever, could this be the

0:10:330:10:36

month that we see some talented

teenagers breaking through? Busy

0:10:360:10:39

times mean busy teams, and to put

into perspective just how busy we

0:10:390:10:44

are talking, it took 87 days to

complete the first 11 Premier League

0:10:440:10:48

game weeks of the season. The next

11 are crammed into just 47. If

0:10:480:10:53

managers want to keep their squad

fresh it could be all about bringing

0:10:530:10:56

young players through. We are

predicting these lies as top talent

0:10:560:11:01

to look out for in the football

world very soon. Let's start with

0:11:010:11:05

greased Nelson. -- Reiss. He is well

on the way to making the Premier

0:11:050:11:17

League. He has helped Arsenal win

the Community Shield and has since

0:11:170:11:22

featured in the Europa League. He

has amazing attacking talent,

0:11:220:11:30

Nelson. He is making Arsene Wenger a

happy man. Manchester United angel

0:11:300:11:36

Gomez has captained England at youth

level and he has got a bright future

0:11:360:11:40

at Old Trafford, even replacing

Wayne Rooney last season.

What a

0:11:400:11:51

moment for Gomes at just 16 years.

Angel has been compared to Ryan

0:11:510:11:56

Giggs and recently won Player of the

Month in the under 23 division. He

0:11:560:12:02

is knocking on the first team squad

door. Full flyer Ryan has made 50

0:12:020:12:11

starts. Spurs want to buy him, and I

am not surprised. Check out this

0:12:110:12:16

goal in last season's FA Cup.

Brilliantly taken again.

Ryan can

0:12:160:12:26

score and take goals. Look at this

stunning assist at the World Cup

0:12:260:12:32

against Spain for England's under

17s. Liverpool's Ryan Brewster was

0:12:320:12:38

on the end of that and he is a

natural goal-scorer. He took a

0:12:380:12:45

starring role in England's World Cup

win recently.

Ryan Brewster, England

0:12:450:12:53

back in front. He now has six for

the tournament.

He finished up with

0:12:530:12:58

a whopping eight goals, what a

performance! Midfield magician Phil

0:12:580:13:09

Foden is called the Manchester

Messi. Look at the size difference

0:13:090:13:16

between he and block above. He was

player of the tournament when he

0:13:160:13:24

inspired the under 17 to World Cup

glory in October.

From two down,

0:13:240:13:29

they now lead 3-2.

Silky feed Phil

Foden also made his Champions League

0:13:290:13:34

debutante recently. He has potential

to become world class.

0:13:340:13:40

What a bunch of players. While we

are talking wants to watch, look at

0:13:400:13:44

these fantastic achievements from

you all at home. Liverpool fan then

0:13:440:13:49

played his first game for Chippenham

town youth under nines recently and

0:13:490:13:54

they won 4-3, with Ben doing some

cracking work in defence. And here

0:13:540:13:59

come the girls. Eva and her

team-mates have had a great start in

0:13:590:14:05

their league. Keep it up! This is

Manchester United fan Jack, and here

0:14:050:14:15

he is at Old Trafford before a

Legends match. And, these brothers

0:14:150:14:19

were over the moon to meet the

Bournemouth star. Both boys play at

0:14:190:14:31

youth level. A little birdie tells

us it was your birthday yesterday,

0:14:310:14:37

so many happy returns. Add to the

Kickabout website for all the

0:14:370:14:42

details on how to get involved. That

is nearly it for today, but let's

0:14:420:14:47

congratulate Celtic on another

fantastic trophy win. They beat

0:14:470:14:50

Motherwell to retain the Scottish

League Cup last weekend, making

0:14:500:14:54

Brendan Rodgers the first Celtic box

thing-macro boss since 1969 to win

0:14:540:15:01

for domestic trophies in a row. He

is a look at why they have been so

0:15:010:15:04

unstoppable. CU!

0:15:040:15:06

A great strike from Stuart

Armstrong! What a finish!

0:15:230:15:32
