Final Score: Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Cavani fired just wide with his first touch while Marcus Rashford went close late on. And down the other end Chelsea felt they should have had a penalty when Harry Maguire held Cesar Azpilicueta down. But ultimately nobody could argue the goalless draw wasn’t a fair result.

Mancity Vs Liverpool’s clash postponed till next month

Advertisements

Manchester City’s crunch clash with title rivals Liverpool has been moved to Sunday, November 8 after the Premier League announced the next cohort of matches to be broadcast live.


A host of fixtures have been moved around in order to accommodate the broadcasting slots for television, with the league now announcing the run-down of games from match weeks 8 to ten.

City will now welcome Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to the Etihad for a 4.30pm kick-off, following on from the earlier fixture of the day which will see Leicester City take on Wolves, as part of Sky Sports’ ‘Super Sunday’ package.

Revised schedule can be found at the bottom of this article

Other key fixtures to have been shuffled around for TV include Newcastle’s clash with Chelsea – now Saturday November 21 at 12.30pm – and Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United welcoming Arsenal to Elland Road – now 4.30pm on Sunday, November 22.

The Premier League announced the dates and kick-off times via its official website on Friday, though included no mention of whether select games would continue to go ahead on the controversial pay-per-view (PPV) basis.

At present it has been indicated which games will be shown live by either Sky Sports or competitors BT Sports, though further word is expected regarding whether some games will remain accessible only by further payment.

In recent weeks fans across the entire Premier League have express their disdain at the money-spinning move, with many boycotting the PPV matches and instead donating money to other causes.

Last week it was revealed that both Sky and BT had refused to release the sales figures from their first weekend of paid for Premier League matches.

Sportsmail learned that even internal staff are not being briefed on the success or otherwise of the sales figures, although they suspect that is because the numbers are low.

Sky said the information was ‘commercially sensitive’. However, they have previously revealed numbers for sports such as boxing. BT Sport have said that they do not typically release viewing figures for their broadcasts.

Newcastle fans responded by boycotting Sky’s PPV offering of their 4-1 home defeat by Manchester United and have instead raised £19,000 for the city’s West End Foodbank.

Other supporters’ groups, including Leeds, are now encouraging fans to give to charity rather than pay to watch matches.

Likewise, Arsenal supporters are calling for a boycott of their side’s upcoming PPV tie with Leicester, with fan groups urging others to turn their back on the game and instead donate to local north London causes including Islington Cares.

On Thursday Liverpool FC fan group Spirit of Shankly took to social media to state that supporters clubs of all 20 Premier League sides are now united behind the movement referred to as #CharitynotPPV.

Spirit of Shankly wrote: ‘In a time of crisis & struggle for so many, fans should not be asked to pay extortionate fees to watch their team #BoycottPPV.’

Liverpool’s match with Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United takes the headline act on Saturday with the late 8pm slot, though thousands of supporters are expected to go without seeing their team play in refusal to pay the £14.95 viewing fee.

Final score: Arsenal 2-1 Sheffield United

Arsenal scored two quick-fire team goals to extend Sheffield United’s point-less start to the Premier League season – although the Blades did manage their first goal.

Match Report
The Gunners did not really get going until the 60th minute when Bukayo Saka celebrated his first England call-up with a header from Hector Bellerin’s cross.

Three minutes later they doubled their lead with Nicolas Pepe’s good run and finish into the bottom corner – finishing off a move with 19 passes.

They looked completely in control until David McGoldrick curled home the Blades’ first league goal of the season.

But it was not enough to affect the outcome and United have now lost seven consecutive top-flight games for the first time since 1975.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal move onto six points from three games, having lost 2-0 to champions Liverpool last Monday.

Bale to be EPL’s top salary earner

Advertisements

The Welsh striker appears destined for a return to Tottenham Hotspur with his departure set to alleviate the Spanish club’s annual financial outlay.


Following his 2013 101 million euro move to Real Madrid, during his time at the club, Gareth Bale has bagged some key goals for the Spanish side, left behind a legacy overshadowed by injuries and in recent years has fallen foul of the Bernabéu faithful with lacklustre performances. The club paid the player 30 million euro last season in salary and with the striker only featuring for 1.260 minutes, (27.5% of possible playing time) this equated to Bale being paid 23,800 euro per minute of match action.

Bale’s iconic goals in the famous white shirt are undoubtedly his 2014 Copa del Rey effort where he out-sprinted Bartra at Mestalla to bag the winner and his spectacular over-head effort in the Kiev Champions League final where Zidane’s men overcame Liverpool in the 2018 final. The Welsh international was named man of the match upon being interviewed post game, demanded more playing time for the club.

Differences with Zizou
That night in May served to add to tension with French coach Zinedine Zidane with the relationship between both individuals overshadowed with tension which culminated with Bale poised to move to China in the summer of 2019 only for the LaLiga club to make an eleventh hour u-turn. Zidane’s feelings on the Cardiff born striker’s continuity at Real Madrid was epitomised in his famous “better that he leaves today rather than tomorrow” comment at a press conference.

Bale is now set to take a break from his life as a Real Madrid player despite his contract with the Spanish side not expiring until June 2022. In his time in the Spanish capital, the striker has bagged 105 goals in the white shirt, delivering 68 assists in 251 official matches. The Welsh international has secured four Champions League titles, two LaLiga winners medals along with success in one Copa del Rey final. Bale has also lifted three UEFA Super Cups, one Spanish Super Cupo and four FIFA Club World Cups.
