It would be so typical of Liverpool for this to happen…
With the coronavirus edging ever closer towards Britain, I think the only sensible solution is to close all Premier League stadia (too many potential disease-spreaders in one place), cancel the remaining fixtures and declare the 2019-20 season abandoned, null and void.

Anyone else hope Odion Ighalo is a raging success this season?
Odion Ighalo: "The T-shirt is for my late sister. I lost my sister in December, and she is very dear to me, she is a good #mufc fan too. We hoped for this moment, but now I am in United she is not here to see what is going on. So it is a bit emotional for me." #mulive [mutv]

They don’t make footballers names like that anymore.
Fred is the first Fred to score twice in a game for Manchester United since Fred Kennedy got two in a 4-2 win over Leyton Orient in 1925. Orient's scorers were Clatworthy Rennox and Herbert Bliss.

Moise Kean hasn’t even been in England for a year and look what’s happened to him.
Let them fight!
Sharp as a tack is Arsene Wenger.
