Premier League set rules for returning fans, Liverpool linked with Sevilla star and more news


Under the three-tier system currently in place across Britain, football stadiums in tier 1 and tier 2 areas are allowed to host up to 2,000 and 4,000 fans, respectively.

Fans of Premier League clubs allowed to welcome supporters back in stadiums will have to wear masks and avoid hugging each other, per ESPN.

Supports belonging to the same household will be allowed to sit together but all other fans will have to follow the social-distancing seating plan. All of them will be given a code of conduct upon their entry into the stadium before the match starts.

Under the new rules that the British government unveiled for open-door sport venues, clubs in tier-1 and tier-2 areas are allowed to welcome up to 4,000 and 2,000 fans, respectively. Ten Premier League clubs can currently host 2,000 supporters under this system,.

However, for clubs who are present in Britain’s tier 3, which include both Manchester City and Manchester United, they won’t be allowed to welcome fans unless the areas they’re based in move up into one of the two lowest risk tiers.

Despite the youngster’s performance in Sevilla’s thrashing at the hands of Chelsea in the Champions League yesterday, Julian Lopetegui’s side came out of the game with nothing to show for their efforts.

Liverpool are keeping tabs on Sevilla goalkeeper Alfonso Pastor and might make their move for the 20-year-old next summer, per AS.

The Spanish shot-stopper was handed his debut by Julen Lopetegui for his side’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea in the Champions League yesterday. Defeat in the fixture ended the Spanish club’s hopes of topping the Group E and might see them draw a tough opponent in the R-16.

However, despite the underwhelming performances of those ahead of him in the Sevilla defense, Pastor was one of the few bright spots for Sevilla yesterday. The youngster made a string of decent saves and prevented the dismal score line from becoming humiliating.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are reportedly keeping a keen eye on the teenager, but they aren’t the only top outfit who are interested in acquiring his services, with Real Madrid also linked with the 20-year-old as he enters into the final few months of his Sevilla contract.

The former Arsenal manager has been away from management since leaving the Gunners after spending more than two-decades with the North London club.

Former Arsenal and Monaco manager Arsene Wenger has turned down the offer to become the manager of the Serbian national team, per Informer.

The Balkan side, who already have Ljubisa Tumbakovic holding their reins, have endured a dismal few years under the tutelage of their current manager.

Serbia have only recently failed to qualify for delayed EURO 2020 after losing to Scotland on penalties, only two years after the Balkan side featured in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

They were reportedly hopeful that the arrival of Wenger would rejuvenate the side’s fortunes but the former Arsenal boss declined their offer.
