With Arsenal, Liverpool, and Tottenham having their problems, the door is open for some unexpected sides to challenge for a top-four spot in the Premier League. After three straight wins, Newcastle United suddenly finds itself in fourth place, and fans are wondering if the club could be in for a good season under boss Rafa Benitez. While Newcastle didn’t impress in the transfer market, Benitez does have some good young players to work with.
There are several big games in the Premier League this weekend including undefeated sides Watford and Manchester City clashing on Saturday, and a London derby on Sunday between Chelsea and struggling Arsenal. Sunday’s final match, though, is something special, as Wayne Rooney returns to Old Trafford to face his old club when Everton visits Manchester United. Looking at how these two teams are doing, it’s hard to believe that Everton outscored United last season.
Manchester City hosts Liverpool on Saturday in the Premier League’s feature match this weekend. Both teams are expected to challenge for the title, and sit just two points back of current leaders Manchester United. Liverpool in particular has been attracting attention for the team’s stylish play. The Reds have depth in midfield, and plenty of pace in attack, while charismatic manager Jurgen Klopp has both fans and pundits believing this could be Liverpool’s year.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
