Transfer news LIVE: Latest Premier League and European club signings

It will be Leverkusen´s first game without influential players Kai Havertz and Kevin Volland after their departures for Chelsea and Monaco, respectively, though Peter Bosz´s team has Patrik Schick, who played on loan for Leipzig last season.

And at Palace it all seems to make sense. From that previous loan spell not much has changed from Roy Hodgson still being manager to Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Zaha still occupying positions in an attack which Batshuayi fitted in so well.

The Old Trafford legend told Sky Sports: ‚The idea that Dean Henderson would come into Manchester United and replace David de Gea as No 1 goalkeeper straight away… it won’t happen, I can guarantee it won’t happen.

Tax implications: Even though you’re avoiding the 10% early distribution penalty, you will still be subjected to income taxes on that money. Remember: money deposited into a traditional IRA is taxed when it’s withdrawn — not when it’s contributed. So, however much money you withdraw will be added to your annual income, and you’ll be taxed on that accordingly. That could put you in a different tax bracket and link dramatically change how much you owe in taxes.

Last season Palace’s biggest weakness was the number of goals they scored. Only Norwich, who finished bottom, scored fewer (26) than Palace’s 31.
A 14th-placed finish was largely down to Palace’s strong defensive record.

‚The period between Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar we had Ricardo, Fabien Barthez, Mark Bosnich, Roy Carroll, Tim Howard, Massimo Taibi, many goalkeepers over a five to six-year period and there was inconsistency that certainly didn’t help.‘

Frank Lampard gave him chances last season and Batshuayi delivered six goals but with only two of them coming in the top flight and Champions League he’s never been fully trusted to feature on a regular basis.

Immediate proof that Bielsa – a coach so obsessed with the technical detail that he ones drew on a player’s boot the place he wanted the ball despatched from – can transcend the lunatic economics of football where players are dropped at a whim and prove that coaching counts. The boys in the old Liverpool Bootroom would certainly have appreciated that.

Schalke was due to host Bavarian side Schweinfurt, but the game was called off on Friday following a complaint from Türkgücü Munich.
Türkgücü contends it should be playing Schalke as it was the local regional league leader ahead of Schweinfurt when the division resumed after its pandemic-induced break. Bavarian soccer authorities had already promoted Türkgücü to the third division for the new season, making second-placed Schweinfurt the best Bavarian amateur side at the time of registration for the cup.

It is worth assessing how it has got to this point where the Belgium striker, who continues to flourish for his country as seen on Tuesday night when he scored twice in the 5-1 win over Iceland, has fallen so out of favour at Stamford Bridge.

A season at Palace is a chance for Batshuayi not only to show he can regularly perform in the Premier League but also to cement a spot in Belgium’s squad for next summer’s delayed European Championship.

There were weaknesses of course. The way the Leeds artillery advanced, flooding the Liverpool penalty area with players, left Phillips terribly stranded and overrun at times. For periods, there was not really a Leeds midfield to speak of.
