Hello, Kickabout fans.

0:00:260:00:28

Ben here with your Saturday morning

fix of footy action.

0:00:280:00:33

And we've got to start by talking

about the January transfer

0:00:330:00:36

window, which finally

closed on Wednesday.

0:00:360:00:42

Premier League clubs spent a record

£150 million on deadline day,

0:00:420:00:44

taking the total for the months

to a whopping £430 million.

0:00:440:00:49

This week saw some massive deals

for Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and

0:00:490:00:51

Swansea, with Aubameyang

transmit joining the

0:00:510:00:54

Gunners from Borussia Dortmund,

Tottenham signing Lucas Moura,

0:00:540:01:00

Olivier Giroud joining

the Blues, and Andre Ayew

0:01:000:01:04

making his way back to his old club.

0:01:040:01:09

As well as transfer

deals there's midweek Premier

0:01:090:01:11

League action to catch up on.

0:01:110:01:12

The draw for the next

round of the FA

0:01:120:01:15

Cup, plus all of this

coming up on today's show.

0:01:150:01:17

We chat exclusively to

Leicester City superstars Christian

0:01:170:01:19

Fuchs and Kelechi Iheanacho.

0:01:190:01:23

Ahead of one of the biggest sporting

events in the world, the Super Bowl,

0:01:230:01:26

we challenge these top American

footballers to take

0:01:260:01:34

on the Hat-trick Challenge.

0:01:340:01:40

And Huddersfield's Danish defender

Zanka answers your questions.

0:01:400:01:42

Three Premier League

footballers, two NFL

0:01:420:01:43

superstars, that is one cracking

show we have lined up.

0:01:430:01:45

Let's start by looking

at the big stories in the

0:01:450:01:49

footy world this week.

0:01:490:01:51

The draw for the next

round of the FA Cup took

0:01:510:01:54

place on Monday, and there are some

great ties to look forward to.

0:01:540:02:01

Premier League leaders

City visit League 1

0:02:050:02:13

table toppers Wigan, in a repeat

of the 2013 FA Cup final,

0:02:140:02:17

which Wigan won 1-0.

0:02:170:02:18

Pep's men beat Cardiff

in the last round to make it

0:02:180:02:24

through, while the Latics

pulled off a giant-killing

0:02:240:02:26

by defeating my boys,

Premier League West Ham United.

0:02:260:02:29

Elsewhere, after beating Yeovil,

Man United will travel to either

0:02:290:02:32

Huddersfield or Birmingham, while

Chelsea host Hull after putting

0:02:320:02:34

three past Newcastle.

0:02:340:02:35

The lowest ranked team

left is leaked to

0:02:350:02:37

Newport County, who earned a replay

against Spurs at Wembley after the

0:02:370:02:40

fantastic 1-1 draw.

0:02:400:02:41

This week saw a full

round of Premier League

0:02:410:02:43

fixtures, with Manchester City

moving 15 points clear at the top,

0:02:430:02:46

with victory over West Brom.

0:02:460:02:47

Local rivals United

slipped up, as Spurs

0:02:470:02:48

beat them 2-0 with a goal

after just 11 seconds,

0:02:480:02:51

while Liverpool moved up to third,

with victory against

0:02:510:02:53

Huddersfield.

0:02:530:02:56

Elsewhere, Bournemouth and Swansea

both pulled off shock wins

0:02:560:03:03

with the Swans beating Arsenal

and the Cherries putting

0:03:030:03:06

three past defending

champions Chelsea.

0:03:060:03:07

What a result that

was for Bournemouth.

0:03:070:03:08

There is no slowing down for any

of the Premier League

0:03:080:03:11

teams this weekend with more games

coming thick and fast.

0:03:110:03:14

The late kick-off sees

Walcott return to

0:03:140:03:16

his old club, when Everton face

the Gunners at the Emirates.

0:03:160:03:22

But can Theo bag against

his old team-mates?

0:03:220:03:24

There is a massive game

at Anfield on Sunday,

0:03:240:03:27

as Liverpool welcome Spurs,

and the match was the subject

0:03:270:03:34

of this week's Top Tekkers vote.

0:03:340:03:35

Keep watching to find out who won

between super strikers mean Kelechi

0:03:350:03:38

Keep watching to find out

who won between super

0:03:500:03:52

strikers Mane and Kane.

0:03:520:03:55

Elsewhere, Huddersfield

face a big test at Old

0:03:550:03:57

Trafford.

0:03:570:03:58

They are just one point

above the relegation zone, but if

0:03:580:04:01

there is one player in the team

with the attitude to turn that

0:04:010:04:04

around, we're pretty sure it

would be the

0:04:040:04:07

around, we're pretty sure it

would be this guy,

0:04:070:04:10

defender Mathias Jorgensen,

known as Zanka, hit the headlines

0:04:100:04:12

back in December for his upbeat

antics off the pitch, as he offered

0:04:120:04:20

to buy every Huddersfield

fan travelling to

0:04:200:04:21

Southampton a Christmas

0:04:210:04:23

drink as thanks for

the amazing support.

0:04:230:04:27

No wonder he the

nickname Zanka Claus.

0:04:270:04:29

We caught up with the Danish

defender recently with

0:04:290:04:31

questions from you lot.

0:04:310:04:36

My name is Ollie, and I'm a massive

Huddersfield Town fan.

0:04:360:04:38

You're my favourite

player, I have your name

0:04:380:04:44

on my shirt, and and I have your

shirt from when you beat Man United.

0:04:440:04:48

Who's the best player you have

ever played against?

0:04:480:04:50

The best player I have ever

played against the Lionel

0:04:500:04:52

Messi at Barcelona, when I played

him in the Champions League.

0:04:520:04:55

Hi, Zanka.

0:04:550:04:58

My name is Jamie.

0:05:010:05:02

I'm a huge Huddersfield Town fan.

0:05:020:05:03

This is my question for you.

0:05:030:05:06

At what age did you realise

you wanted to be a

0:05:060:05:08

footballer and what top tip would

you give to anybody who wants to get

0:05:080:05:12

into the game?

0:05:120:05:13

Hi, Jamie.

0:05:130:05:14

I think I've always

wanted to be a football

0:05:140:05:16

player.

0:05:160:05:17

Maybe around 15 years of age,

I realised it was a goal that I

0:05:170:05:20

could actually reach.

0:05:200:05:21

Good advice from me would be

just always do your

0:05:210:05:24

best, and there will be times

which feel really hard,

0:05:240:05:26

but you've just got to stick to it.

0:05:260:05:28

I sing at the match from the stands.

0:05:280:05:30

Does the singing make

you play better?

0:05:300:05:32

Ollie, the singing definitely

makes me play better.

0:05:320:05:40

It just makes you feel

better, makes you feel

0:05:410:05:43

stronger, being able to run fast

and all these things.

0:05:430:05:51

Now, the Premier League

Schools Tournament is back

0:05:530:05:55

this year, offering the chance

for hundreds of youngsters

0:05:550:05:57

to experience life as a top-flight

footballer, and

0:05:570:05:59

every club is represented, with more

than 1400 schools and 11,000 players

0:05:590:06:02

battling it out to play

in the finals, which this year take

0:06:020:06:05

place at the King Power Stadium.

0:06:050:06:06

John was therefore

kickabout last week to

0:06:060:06:08

beat Leicester superstars Christian

Fuchs and Kelechi Iheanacho as they

0:06:080:06:10

did the draw for this

year's tournament.

0:06:100:06:12

Welcome to the King Power

Stadium, home of the 2016

0:06:120:06:14

Premier League champions

Leicester City,

0:06:140:06:22

Kickabout are here for

the

0:06:240:06:31

Premier League Primary Stars

football tournament draw.

0:06:310:06:35

The Premier League Primary Stars

football tournament will take place

0:06:350:06:38

at the King Power Stadium

on the 23rd of May, and will see

0:06:380:06:41

all of Premier League clubs

represented by

0:06:410:06:49

an under 11s mixed

and under 11s girls team.

0:06:580:07:01

Inside at the moment

are all the players from

0:07:010:07:03

three local schools who will be

competing in the tournament heats up

0:07:030:07:06

Leicester City.

0:07:060:07:10

A chance to represent the Foxes

at the finals in May.

0:07:100:07:13

What they don't know

is there going to be joined by two

0:07:130:07:15

Leicester City superstars.

0:07:150:07:16

Here come Leicester again!

0:07:160:07:18

2-0!

0:07:180:07:19

Kelechi Iheanacho!

0:07:190:07:20

And Christian Fuchs

gets across, puts

0:07:200:07:21

his body on the line

and makes the blog.

0:07:210:07:24

Now to find out which teams will be

facing each other in this

0:07:240:07:26

year's tournament.

0:07:260:07:27

It's Brighton & Hove Albion,

first team to go.

0:07:270:07:30

CHEERING

0:07:300:07:31

Don't let us down!

0:07:310:07:32

Group B is led by...

0:07:320:07:33

Manchester City.

0:07:330:07:34

So, a successful

draw for this year's

0:07:340:07:36

Premier League Primary Stars

football tournament.

0:07:360:07:42

Guys, how do you feel

about the draw today?

0:07:420:07:49

Exciting.

0:07:490:07:52

I mean, I think Leicester is a group

that can definitely beat

0:07:520:08:00

the teams there,

and go for the trophy.

0:08:010:08:03

What is it like playing

in a stadium like this?

0:08:030:08:05

Some of them may have

that experience.

0:08:050:08:07

It's amazing.

0:08:070:08:08

With our fans especially.

0:08:080:08:13

It's amazing to play

in all the stadiums in the

0:08:130:08:16

Premier League.

0:08:160:08:17

Week in, week out, great

atmosphere, and I'm happy for

0:08:170:08:19

the kids that they can

show their talent,

0:08:190:08:24

especially showing the

0:08:240:08:25

talent on that stage

and that stadium.

0:08:250:08:33

Is there one piece of advice you can

give to the children that may

0:08:400:08:43

go on to play in the final?

0:08:430:08:45

I would just say, keep

working hard, keep

0:08:450:08:47

dreaming.

0:08:470:08:48

Keep doing what you're doing,

enjoying it, keep working

0:08:480:08:50

hard for your dream,

and eventually it comes true.

0:08:500:08:52

It's not only going to that,

but that is a base.

0:08:520:08:55

How would it feel to

you playing out there?

0:08:550:08:57

It will be incredible.

0:08:570:08:58

If I went there,

I wouldn't even be able

0:08:580:09:01

to blink because I would just

want to take it all in.

0:09:010:09:04

It is a team effort to get

to represent Leicester, but

0:09:040:09:07

we have to make one step at a time.

0:09:070:09:11

If we win, it would just be

the best day of my life

0:09:110:09:14

because playing on there,

where all the players have played,

0:09:140:09:16

that would just be amazing.

0:09:160:09:18

What a day we have had

here at the King Power Stadium.

0:09:180:09:20

The children are excited,

but I cannot wait for this

0:09:200:09:23

tournament to start in May.

0:09:230:09:24

Imagine this, the winner gets

to play it on this pitch.

0:09:240:09:29

Imagine this, the winner gets

to play out on this pitch.

0:09:290:09:32

What an opportunity.

0:09:320:09:34

And if previous years

are anything to go by,

0:09:340:09:36

it is going to be awesome.

0:09:360:09:43

The finals take place in May,

and as usual Kickabout will be

0:09:430:09:46

there with a special show to cover

all the action, so keep an eye out

0:09:460:09:50

for that later in the year.

0:09:500:09:53

There's sure to be some

sensational skills on show,

0:09:530:10:00

just like here on

Kickabout each week.

0:10:000:10:02

You never fail to impress

but the videos you send in.

0:10:020:10:05

Just take a look at this lot.

0:10:050:10:09

First up...

0:10:090:10:10

A thunderbolt of a free

kick, right into the top

0:10:100:10:13

corner.

0:10:130:10:14

What a goal!

0:10:140:10:15

And another cracking free kick here.

0:10:150:10:20

Bending over the wall like Ronaldo.

0:10:200:10:21

No way!

0:10:210:10:26

On the right foot and smashed

into the top corner.

0:10:260:10:28

What a goal.

0:10:280:10:29

Finally...

0:10:290:10:30

Training in the back garden.

0:10:300:10:38

Showing us how to nail

the outside of the boot corner

0:10:390:10:41

challenge.

0:10:410:10:42

Yes!

0:10:420:10:43

No wonder you're happy with that!

0:10:430:10:45

Please keep your footy

skills and photos coming.

0:10:450:10:53

To find out how, head

to the Kickabout website.

0:10:540:10:56

And while you're there,

don't forget to get involved with

0:10:560:11:04

our Top Tekkers vote, too.

0:11:070:11:10

With Liverpool and Spurs facing each

other tomorrow, this week we asked

0:11:100:11:13

you to choose between

Sadio Mane and Harry Kane.

0:11:130:11:15

Let's find out who

you wanted to see.

0:11:150:11:17

Dangerous!

0:11:170:11:18

A predatory finish from

Tottenham's goalkick.

0:11:180:11:21

Harry Kane seals it once

and for all for Spurs.

0:11:210:11:23

Dropped to Harry Kane.

0:11:230:11:29

Great strength.

0:11:290:11:30

That makes it three.

0:11:300:11:32

A goal!

0:11:320:11:38

Harry Kane, great turn,

brilliant goal by Harry Kane!

0:11:380:11:43

It is Kane...

0:11:430:11:45

And it is 1-0 Tottenham.

0:11:450:11:48

Towards Kane.

0:11:480:11:52

Oh, yes, he does it again!

0:11:520:11:54

Swansea are in trouble here.

0:11:540:11:56

Kane puts it away.

0:11:560:11:59

Harry Kane!

0:11:590:12:00

1-0!

0:12:000:12:04

Kane is onside, Harry Kane

for Tottenham Hotspur.

0:12:040:12:09

Let's take a look at

next week's choice.

0:12:090:12:15

This time it is league leaders

City, against former

0:12:150:12:17

champions Leicester.

0:12:170:12:18

The two take each other

on next weekend, so we

0:12:180:12:20

want you to choose

between these players.

0:12:200:12:22

Raheem Sterling...

0:12:220:12:23

or Riyad Mahrez.

0:12:230:12:30

Head to the Kickabout

website to cast your vote.

0:12:300:12:33

You've got until 9am on Wednesday

the 7th of February, and we will

0:12:330:12:36

reveal the winner next Saturday.

0:12:360:12:44

That's nearly it for this

week, but we couldn't

0:12:440:12:46

leave without talking

0:12:460:12:47

about one of the biggest sporting

events in the world, taking place

0:12:470:12:50

tomorrow.

0:12:500:12:51

The Super Bowl.

0:12:510:12:53

The New England Patriots face

the Philadelphia Eagles, so,

0:12:530:12:55

in honour of the big event

we thought we would

0:12:550:12:57

test the footy skills of some

American footballers.

0:12:570:12:59

Check out how Denver

Broncos wide receiver

0:12:590:13:02

Emmanuelle Sanders and Washington

Redskins defensive back

0:13:020:13:10

Josh Norman got on attempting

the Hat-trick Challenge.

0:13:100:13:12

I am an American footballer

and I am here to

0:13:120:13:19

try the Kickabout

Hat-trick Challenge.

0:13:190:13:20

Let's see, man.

0:13:200:13:21

That hurt.

0:13:210:13:22

Close.

0:13:220:13:25

A little bit more to the right.

0:13:250:13:28

Got that one!

0:13:280:13:31

Goal!

0:13:310:13:37

Almost.

0:13:370:13:39

Close.

0:13:390:13:45

One.

0:13:450:13:47

You got one in there.

0:13:470:13:54

I'm Josh Norman, American football,

and this is the Kickabout

0:13:540:14:02

Hat-trick Challenge I'm

about to attempt.

0:14:030:14:05

Don't kick it so hard.

0:14:050:14:12

I should start using my other foot!

0:14:240:14:29

I should have just

kept short like that.

0:14:290:14:36

Check out our brand-new

Hat-trick Challenge leaderboard with

0:14:360:14:38

all the scores so far.

0:14:380:14:46

Those efforts place

Emmanuel here, with one,

0:14:470:14:49

very nice, but unfortunately for

Josh, I'm afraid you go down here.

0:14:490:14:55

We are back next Saturday

with another name to add to the

0:14:550:15:02

leaderboard plus superstar

interviews and plenty

0:15:020:15:06

We chat exclusively to Leicester City superstars Christian Fuchs and Kelechi Iheanacho ahead of the Premier League Schools Tournament, which will be held at the King Power stadium later this year. Also, Huddersfield's Danish defender Zanka answers your questions, and ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl we challenge two top American footballers to take on the Hat Trick Challenge!
