Follow all the latest updates from Goodison Park as Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa takes on Duncan Ferguson’s Everton
Chief among them is Arsenal’s pursuit of Dusan Vlahovic. Fiorentina are willing to sell the striker this month but reports today suggest the Gunners’ hopes may well be dwindling, while they are also struggling to get a loan move for Juventus’ Arthur Melo over the line as their midfield crisis deepens. Meanwhile, Antonio Conte is still waiting to make his first signing as Tottenham boss but reports suggest it might not be far away, with Spurs closing on a deal to sign Adama Traore from Wolves.
Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has warned Cristiano Ronaldo his reaction to being substituted in Wednesday’s win over Brentford was “too emotional”. Ronaldo was taken off on 71 minutes with United leading 2-0 and on their way to an eventual 3-1 victory, but was visibly frustrated at his withdrawal. “I don’t blame him for that but obviously any manager would wish it shouldn’t be too emotional and also in front of the TV cameras I don’t think this will be for the benefit of anyone: not to his benefit or teammates,” Rangnick said.
