A record 170 countries had the window open last month, with a total of 4,108 international transfers being completed. Although clubs from the 'Big Five' accounted for only 14. Clubs in England spent $298. Germany ($206. Italy ($126. The top flight leagues were responsible for 93. Some of the high profile moves included Bruno Fernandes' move from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United for an initial fee of 55 million euros ($60.
The result lifts Fiorentina up to 12th place on 24 points, level with Napoli but above them on head-to-head record, while continuing Gattuso’s wretched start since replacing Carlo Ancelotti as coach last month. The home crowd loudly booed their team off at fulltime as Napoli fell to a third consecutive league defeat for the first time since April 2012.
Dinamo Minsk will try their best to get a win when they visit newcomer Smolevichy. Minsk could not qualify for Europa league place last time out and it was for the first time since 2012. They suffered consecutive defeats in first two matches, then bagged a couple of home wins. They are currently sitting on 12th place. This is only the second season in top division for the hosts. They are yet to salvage a win and managed 3 points from 3 draws, they also drew against Shakhtyor Soligorsk. They are sitting on 15th in the table, and a win here can take them to 6th spot and they might get it.
His early shot was saved by Krul in an open start to the game, while his second-half cross almost led to an own goal by Grant Hanley, who was thankful to Krul's low stop. But the hosts struggled to match the kind of intricate play which has become Norwich's trademark. Instead they relied on power at both ends of the pitch, with their defence holding firm and Joelinton providing some aerial threat, shown when his header was stopped by Krul with Almiron somehow heading wide from the rebound.
But when you change a manager during a mediocre, but not horrendous, period you expect more from the new regime. Only one of Mourinho’s 14 games in charge (the 5-0 scalping of Burnley) have delivered 'more'. The other 13 games were no better or worse than the sad end to Mauricio Pochettino’s reign, save for that explosive first period at West Ham back in November.

They should look at the teams with Graeme Souness, Jan Molby and John Barnes. The chance of a treble doesn't take anything away from trying to remain unbeaten. All they can do is play who's in front of them rather than thinking about how tired they will be. If they want to be successful, they'll have to play a lot of games because they'll have to play in a lot of competitions.

Stephen Kenny is to succeed Mick McCarthy as Republic of Ireland manager with immediate effect, the Football Association of Ireland has announced. Kenny, 48, was already set to replace McCarthy, 61, after Euro 2020 but the postponement of the play-offs and the tournament itself until 2021 because of Covid-19 has accelerated the FAI plan. McCarthy was appointed for a second spell in charge in November 2018.
Despite being actually 2nd in the table of this League, this won't be an easy game for Torpedo Zhodino in my opinion: they have scored no goal in 3 out of the last 4 away games, winning once by 5-2 vs FC Minsk but also losing by 2-0 vs Dinamo Minsk, so scoring here seems to be hard for them. Neman is inside the relegation zone at the moment, however they have been very convincing at home, because they have collected 7 out of their 8 points here, winning twice to nil and also beating a very good team like Energetyk. In my opinion Neman Grodno can take advantage of playing here to win this match.
Arsenal may have better players but Sheffield United have been a better team over the course of the season. We expect them to recover from their recent wobble for their first home match since the restart. Back Sheffield United to be victorious.
Hammers sign Issa Diop, Lucasz Fabianski, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson amongst others. Since the end of last season, West Ham smashed their club record by signing striker Sebastian Haller in a deal that could cost them £45m. The former Eintracht Frankfurt forward has scored six times in 22 Premier League games. The board made a decision at the beginning of 2018 to embark on an investment programme that would involve bringing in a world class manager, investing in better players and making significant investment in the club's infrastructure,\" said Sullivan.
Of course the more sure bet is taking the over 2.5 goals in this one as for example 2nd placed Marseille has 5 wins in a row at home at this moment problem for them being they conceded one goal in each of those wins as they won 3 times with 2-1 and their last two home games with 3-1 in the end, this while last season while hosting same Angers side they drew the game 2-2 in the end, and Angers is in good form right now.
GremioGetty Images FULL STORY 19:10 - Liverpool reverse furlough decision Liverpool have listened to the cacophanous volume of pelters being aimed their way since they said they were going to take state cash to furlough their workers, and announced they will front up the whole wedge instead. FULL STORY 18:20 - Italian referee sceptical of VAR during coronavirus \"In some cases for the video assistants today, we use narrow spaces, such as vans, where the referees work in a space of two square metres, without a safe distance between them and other workers,\" Marcello Nicci - the head of Italy's referees' association (AIA) - told RAI television.
I think over goals are very good option for this game because Sassuolo is in very bad shape at home recently but still they are scoring a lot in front of home fans with 19 scored goals on 9 games which is two goals per game and I surely expect from them to score one or two tonight and on the other hand, torino is in good form and surely they are coming for the win tonight and for something like that they Will need to score at least two goals so over 2.5 goals looks like a great bet on this one
However, former England international defender Micah Richards believes the Leicester midfielder is not yet experienced enough. Richards cited the red card he picked up playing for England Under-21s against France at Euro 2019 in June. I don't think he starts regularly enough,\" said Richards of a player who has been a substitute in 10 of his 18 appearances for the Foxes this season. I agree he does a defensive role - I think he picked up a red card last year as well but you don't mind that because he's a young player and can learn from that.
Moura lacks consistency, not application, but that’s what happens when you’re shunted from winger, then to substitute, then to lone striker. Not on merit, just on who else is available. It’s left him on the verge of burning out, abandoned in attack and only Giovani Lo Celso looking like creating anything for him.
Keita's drive was tipped over the crossbar by Krul, while efforts from Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were comfortable for the Dutch goalkeeper to deal with. When the marauding Trent Alexander-Arnold dragged a shot wide from the edge of the box after just 13 seconds, a routine win looked to be on the cards, but the Reds had to battle hard once more to go a mammoth 25 points clear of champions Manchester City.
The Partenopei have won twice in their last 14 games across all competitions. They are coming into this match with only two clean sheets across their last 15 matches in all competitions, despite improving their defence in the summer. With Gattuso expected to ring the changes before a weekend meeting with Fiorentina, Napoli’s backline could be exposed once again here.
He did well. I don't want to judge individual performances. He tried to do his best - sometimes it was good and sometimes he could do better, but this is the life of the goalkeeper,\" said the Italian. De Gea was sharp for the rest of the game and kept out a Gylfi Sigurdsson effort just before the controversial disallowed Everton effort in stoppage time.
