On Eden Hazard. Perhaps he has outgrown Chelsea. Perhaps they have shrunk.

Or he has two feet on the same leg, one coming out of his knee and the other by his ankle.

He has the shortest legs in football and a normal-sized body. No wonder he confounds defenders.

Higuaín has only scored three goals this season against top-eight teams: Atalanta (6th in Italy), Olympiakos (2nd in Greece) & Dudelange (1st in Luxembourg). No goals v current top-half teams since October.

Marco Silva needed this. Maurizio Sarri didn't. On Everton's first win against the top six since 2017, another Chelsea away loss and a game of two halves:

Fulham have still conceded 2+ goals in every game in 2019. Including the one against Oldham.

Thanks a lot, that's very kind. As John can testify, I can also be uninteresting in a variety of ways.

On Maguire, sent off, Morgan, sent on and a scorer, and Maddison, who struck with a superb free kick. Burnley 1-2 Leicester Observer report:

Didn't want to boast but I have joined the selection panel. Though they ignored my suggestions Spain should pick Shane Long and Oumar Niasse.

I do indeed approve. When you need someone to run quickly in a straight line, cross the ball to the opposition and not score, Navas is your man.

So no English club will go out of Europe between August 30 and April 16, at the earliest.

Olivier Giroud is now the top scorer in this season's Europa League. The last player from a London club to top score in the Europa League / Uefa Cup was Gary Bannister for QPR.

Paul Scholes' first-team career at Manchester United lasted 6815 days. He could fit 219 31-day reigns as Oldham manager into that. And still have 26 days left.
