Bournemouth v Liverpool: Premier League – live!

1 min Blow your whistle! Blow your hoooorn! [embedded content] Out they come. Bournemouth payers are hugging and stuff; in the studio, Graeme Souness is doubtless stroking his thighs as though Gennaro Gattuso has just offered out Joe Jordan. The players are tunnelled; Jordan Henderson is modelling his gameface. So how do you defend Salah? On the ball, by forcing him outside, but what do you do once he’s on the move? Have his full-back follow him? Detail a midfielder to be on the look out? A centre-back? What we’re…

Man City news: Pep Guardiola’s side will break huge Manchester United record – Paul Merson

That is the view of Sky Sports pundit and former Arsenal star Paul Merson. Manchester City are currently 11 points clear of rivals Manchester United and are unbeaten after 17 games. Pep Guardiola’s side have scored 52 times, averaging over three goals a game, with the 7-2 win over Stoke their biggest.

Manchester United news: Jose Mourinho prepared to sell unhappy players for right price

The futures of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Luke Shaw and Marouane Fellaini are all under scrutiny with the January transfer window opening in a fortnight.  Mkhitaryan has been frozen out to the extent that he has not even made the match-day squad for seven of the last eight games; Shaw’s game time has been limited by Ashley Young’s outstanding form at left-back, while Fellaini can leave on a free transfer in the summer after rejecting the offer of a new contract and United might be tempted to cash in on January.  Mourinho…
