Morning all. A very quick Sunday round-up for you.
We played a behind closed doors friendly with Aston Villa yesterday and lost 3-2. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored both of our goals, one from the penalty spot. Douglas Luiz (a player I think I remember us being linked to in the last few months) got one for the visitors, and Jacob Ramsey, a 19 year old midfielder, scored twice for Villa. Beyond that, we know very little, but there were some things we can definitely look at this morning.
Dani Ceballos played. It had been thought that because he was coming from Spain, a country not on the travel corridor exemption lane highway thingy, he’d have to quarantine for 14 days. Turns out because he’s been part of an ‘Elite Sports Organisation’ (Real Madrid), this doesn’t apply to him. This is also why players who go away on international duty can come back without the same restriction – but obviously there’s testing and stuff because the so-called ‘international bubbles’ aren’t any kind of protection.
Anyway, the upshot of that is that he’ll be available for selection for the first weekend of the Premier League season when we take on Fulham, which is obviously…
