    Bizarre Manchester City goal angers Arsenal while Manchester United need reinforcements to maintain title challenge

    The decision of the referee, Abigail Byrne, to allow play to continue after the ball deflected off her in the buildup to Manchester City’s goal in their 1-1 WSL draw with Arsenal was strange. Arsenal’s Jordan Nobbs looked poised to intercept a crossfield pass until it was diverted to the feet of Demi Stokes. Stokes then set Lauren Hemp away on a marauding run before delivering a cross for Khadija “Bunny” Shaw to give City the lead after 65 minutes. City had dominated but Arsenal were right to feel hard done by as the rules seem pretty clear: if the ball hits a match official, remains on the field of play and a team start a promising attack, then play must be restarted with a dropped ball. “The referees should be professional,” said the Arsenal manager, Jonas Eidevall. “They should be given all the resources that they need to prepare and practice and work on fitness and that’s where we need to focus. Let’s raise the standard around refereeing and give them the help they need.” In the end Arsenal snatched an important point in the title race through Tobin Heath’s injury-time strike. SW

  • Sat, 22 Jan 2022 17:09:04 +0000: Everton fan arrested as club vow to ban bottle throwers after Aston Villa defeat - Aston Villa | The Guardian
    • Digne and Cash struck by drinks bottle after goal
    • Several hundred fans stage sit-in protest at full-time

    Everton have vowed to ban any fan found to have thrown objects on to the pitch at Goodison Park after several Aston Villa players were struck by a plastic bottle during their side’s 1-0 win over Duncan Ferguson’s team.

    The former Everton player Lucas Digne and his Villa teammate Matty Cash were both struck on the head by what appeared to be a full bottle of Lucozade as they celebrated Emiliano Buendía’s decisive goal in front of the home section of the Bullens Road Stand. A supporter was arrested at Goodison Park. Several objects were thrown at the Villa players in first-half stoppage time and Everton insist everyone responsible for the disgraceful scenes will be banned.

  • Sat, 22 Jan 2022 14:56:45 +0000: Everton 0-1 Aston Villa: Premier League – as it happened - Aston Villa | The Guardian

    Emi Buendia’s header in first-half stoppage time was enough to decide a hotly contested match at Goodison

    2 min: Mings took a little knock on the shin amid the penalty-box mayhem, but he’s good to go. Villa launch it up the other end. Watkins nearly gets on the end of it, but Pickford gathers on the edge of his area ... then slides out of it, and he’s forced to drop the ball from his hands and hack clear with his feet instead. An early sign that Pickford’s in one of his occasional I’ve-had-17-cups-of-coffee-this-morning moods?

    1 min: Richarlison signals Everton’s Ferguson-approved up-and-at-’em approach by immediately racing down the left. McGinn barges him over. Gomes swings the free kick into the mixer, and Martinez claims. A fast start by the hosts.

  • Sat, 22 Jan 2022 14:55:25 +0000: Buendía downs Everton but bottle incident mars Aston Villa victory - Aston Villa | The Guardian

    Objects thrown at Aston Villa players, prolonged protests against the board after the final whistle and the sight of Steven Gerrard thoroughly enjoying himself at Goodison Park once again. If Everton believed the presence of a popular figure in the dugout and an open letter from Farhad Moshiri could airbrush over fundamental problems at the club, events on and off the pitch told them otherwise.

    Duncan Ferguson re-energised Everton as expected and received the fiercely committed display he had demanded. His connection with the fanbase even extended to putting money behind the bars of the Winslow hotel and the Brick, two Evertonian boozers near Goodison Park, to buy regulars a drink before kick-off. But the caretaker-manager was unable to deliver what he and the crowd craved most of all. A fifth home defeat of the season left Everton with 19 points from 20 games, their lowest tally at this stage of a season since 1997-98 when the club avoided relegation on the final day under Howard Kendall.

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Aston Villa are now looking to strengthen their squad for the up coming season with a large number of new players touted to be on the clubs radar in the closed season. The club has been boosted lately by the resigning of goalkeeper Brad Guzan who left the club at the end of last season. The American keeper has now penned a new lucrative three year deal which will keep him at Villa park until the end of the 2015 season.

Another huge target for the club this season is Blackburns Steven N`Zonzi who is also a top target for Sunderland, Tottenham and Stoke City with the midfielder stating that he has no intention of playing football in the championship. The Frenchman is thought to be available for a fee of around five million pounds and would welcome the chance to play in the English top flight again.

Blackpool winger Matt Phillips is also believed to be on the clubs radar as the championship side looked doomed to lose their influential winger as a host of top flight clubs are now vying for his signature. The twenty one year old has had a brilliant season for his club and now looks set to move to the premier league with clubs such as Everton, Wigan, Reading and Sunderland all in for the winger.

Sheffield United defender Matt Lowton is another target for the Villa Park outfit as Paul Lambert looks to strengthen his back line for the new season and the player is thought to be his top target for his defence. Lowton is now regarded as one of the hottest prospects in English football but Villa will need to fight off stern interest from additional clubs such as feyenoord and Bersiktas.
