Greg Clarke was pushing for a Premier League 2 but was actually rebuffed by Liverpool.

Yet he was recently trying to claim that the PL could end up being a closed league. Sounds like he was covering his own arse rather than reflecting reality.
Good old Liverpool, looking out for the little guy.

The spin coming out since this was exposed is incredible.

6am kickoff is a very good time for a midweek game IMO.
Rubbish fixturing though.

We are the Monday night game in the UK after a 2 week int. break.

Then we are the Friday night game against Villa.

Then don't play again until the Monday night game again a week and a half later.

Stick a 4 day break in there for no reason against a side with no European competition, surrounded by huge breaks between games.

We also play something like 7 night games out of the first 9 rounds.

May be a dumb question, but I’ve seen at least 3 players using this celebration of late. Any idea what it means?

Grealish, Barkley, Dele and Chilwell did it recently to honour Chelsea and England fan Andrew Wood who passed away.

Jimenez did it for his daughter Arya that was born this week.

Not sure how to verify it but I wonder if 3 deflected goals in one game is a PL record. I cant remember another game with one team scoring from 3 deflections. A record to be proud of!
It could, first time I've seen that many.
