Ashen emails: “United didn’t really wear their third shirt, green ones, after the World Cup, ip until today that is.
“Does anybody know why? I just feel it’s kinda weird. Aren’t big clubs suckers for merchandise sales?”
Good old capitalism.

Liverpool 0-1 Aston Villa: A VAR check after Mings’ very high challenge on Gakpo but they decide against handing out a red card.

Simon Burnton was at Tottenham v Brentford. Here is his report …
Liverpool 0-1 Aston Villa: Luiz pings a ball to the back post, Ramsey collects and forces Alisson into a fine save.
Wolves 1-0 Everton: Sometimes football tactics are quite simple. Lopetegui has moved Adama Traore to the left to just run at Michael Keane. It might just work.
Wolves 1-0 Everton: After a fine start to the match, Everton are really struggling to compete with the hosts at the moment.
They sure would.

Fine work by Eze in midfield, which results in him slip a pass through for Edouard and he whacks the ball in.

Traore goes on an incredible run and whacks a shot across Pickford, who can only palm the ball straight into the path of Hwang to open the scoring. Everton are in HUGE TROUBLE.

Who comes in, Jeff?

The midfielder pops up at the back post to volley Villa into the lead. If things stay like this Manchester United and Newcastle will guarantee a top-four spot today.
