4-1-2-3: Solskjaer will overpower the Seagulls with this strong new lineup

Manchester United will face Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium for the second time in four days tomorrow as they aim to overcome the Seagulls in the Carabao Cup fourth round.

According to the club’s official website, ‘Ole suggested he will make “some changes” for this latest encounter,’ one of which is almost certainly going to be Dean Henderson in goal.

It has been widely reported that Henderson has been promised chances to win the number 1 jersey from David de Gea at Old Trafford and will almost certainly be given the gloves in games such as this.

Another almost certain starter will be Eric Bailly, who Solskjaer implied last week is his preferred partner for Harry Maguire if he can sustain a run without injury. Tomorrow’s match will therefore be another chance to prove his fitness.

Elsewhere there may not be as many changes as is … Read the rest

Thiago’s absence is due to positive coronavirus test; Club issues statement; Midfielder has mild symptoms and in isolation

The reason Thiago played no part in Liverpool’s Monday night win over Arsenal, with the club not explaining what his injury was, is because he has coronavirus.

Our no.6 tested positive and is now in isolation, as per the Premier League rules. As a result, he will not feature on Thursday or at the weekend v Aston Villa.

The club has issued a statement declaring that Thiago has only mild symptoms and is on the mend.

 “It is the choice of each individual whether they reveal publicly the outcome of a COVID-19 test, LFC first-team doctor, Dr Jim Moxon, said. 

“We have followed all the protocols to the letter and Thiago is OK. He will be self-isolating now as per the guidelines and hopefully he’ll be back with us soon.”

This is rubbish news, especially considering Thiago has only just joined the club – and we hope to see him … Read the rest

“Man management is pathetic” – These Chelsea fans lay into Frank Lampard after another disappointing result

It’s going to be fascinating to see how things go for Frank Lampard at Chelsea this season, because any manager trying to fit several new signings into a team needs time for everything to gel.

The problem is that he still needs some positive results to buy him that time, and Chelsea are infamously impatient when it comes to letting managers work things out.

He impressed a lot of people last year but there was no pressure due to the transfer ban, but now some serious money has been spent on the squad and there’s nowhere to hide anymore.

Juventus boost as key Napoli player will miss upcoming match

Juventus has been handed a major boost ahead of their next league game against Napoli as Lorenzo Insigne is set to miss the game.

Insigne is one of Napoli’s most dangerous attacking players, but he was substituted after just 22 minutes in their last league game against Genoa at the weekend with an injury.

His agent has now revealed that he will likely miss their next league game against Juventus on the 4th of October.

Vincenzo Pisacane claimed that it will take 48 hours after examining the injury before the true extent will be known and that if he didn’t suffer any injuries, he will be out for at least the next 20 days, and if he did, he will probably be out for longer.

The attacker is reportedly devastated by the recent development as he looks set to also miss the next set of national team matches, just like … Read the rest

With a 4-0 victory at the Camp Nou, Koeman’s side has started the season on a positive note. Find out more about the tactical aspect of the match in this tactical analysis of Barcelona’s match against Villareal.


La Liga is finally back, and it’s back in full swing. We saw many high-scoring matches, with even Atleti scoring 6 goals against Granada. A very entertaining start to La Liga was capped off by Barcelona’s 4-0 Victory over Villareal. Koeman’s first La Liga game in-charge of Barcelona was a resounding success.

Kurt Busch wins at home track in South Point 400 overtime victory

The NASCAR Cup Series playoffs’ Round of 12 began under the desert sun with the South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. After a fairly clean first two stages, the final laps took the playoff drivers into overtime, where Kurt Busch held off Matt DiBenedetto to win at his home track for the first time and advance to the Round of 8.

Points leader Kevin Harvick started on the pole ahead of Kyle Busch. No cars were sent to the rear for failing pre-race inspection, though a notable starter at the back was Chad Finchum, running his first Cup race of the year after missing the Daytona 500.

Stage #1

Chase Elliott, who started third, pushed Harvick ahead before taking the lead himself. Shortly before the competition caution on lap 25, the MBM Motorsports duo of Finchum and Timmy Hill went to the garage … Read the rest

Liverpool preview: Tierney to return + Just kill VAR

It’s Liverpool tonight as we go to Anfield for the first of two trips in a matter of days. This one, it’s fair to say, is the really important one because Premier League points are at stake.

We’ve beaten Liverpool twice recently, once in the league after lockdown, but that was more down to their mistakes and us hanging on than the quality of our own performance. Then in the Community Shield where I think we were decent value for a penalty shoot-out win. Despite that though, Liverpool at home are a very different proposition. It’s April 2017 since they last lost a game at Anfield, so that very clearly demonstrates how tough it’s going to be take three points – or even one – tonight.

Mikel Arteta was asked about this evening’s opposition, and said:

I don’t see any complacency. You can see that in the 24 or 26

Zhuhai: The Newest Chinese Event On The ATP Tour

The Zhuhai Championships made its ATP Tour debut last year, with four Top 15 players competing in the singles main draw.

The second edition of the event would have been held this week if not for the COVID-19 pandemic.

ATPTour.com looks at five things to know about the event.

Zhuhai Fans Show Their Support
At the inaugural edition of the event last year, the stars of the ATP Tour witnessed the unique support of Zhuhai fans. Not only did supporters cheer for their favourite players on the court, but they also took the time to bring gifts to practice sessions.

One player who collected multiple gifts from his fans was eventual champion Alex de Minaur. Alongside a couple of tea sets, the Sydney native also received a dancing animal-shaped hat. De Minaur took to social media to share his love of the hat, using it to dance along to viral … Read the rest

Here we Go: Fabrizio Romano confirms United have agreed deal for midfielder to leave

Manchester United have reached a full agreement to loan Andreas Pereira to Serie A side Lazio.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano tweeted his famous ‘Here we go!’ catchphrase late this evening to confirm the deal.

The details are as we revealed here earlier today – a season-long loan with option to buy at €27 million (£24.53m).

Pereira’s salary for this season will be shared between the two clubs but an earlier report claimed that if the option to buy is taken up, Pereira will sign a five-year deal worth around £35,000 per week.

The Brazilian will now fly to Rome for a medical during the week ahead of final confirmation of the deal.
