It wouldn’t have locked the door to the Champions League, but a Chelsea victory over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday morning certainly would have pulled it to.

Instead Manchester United won 2-0 and, as a result, the door has now been completely blown off its hinges.

Eight teams are now separated by just seven points, with even Arsenal and Burnley in 10th and 11th respectively still in with a – albeit slim – chance of sitting at Europe’s top table.

The European fate of Manchester City, who will almost certainly finish in the top four, is still unresolved, but if their ban is upheld then it is eight teams battling for the two spots alongside Liverpool and Leicester in next season’s Champions League.

There were 87 minutes on the clock at Villa Park when Sadio Mane shifted the ball onto his weaker foot, spotted Andrew Robertson’s run towards the far post, and lifted a pinpoint cross directly into his path.

The left-back met it with an emphatic header, cancelling out Aston Villa’s opener, and three minutes later another moment of inspiration from Mane completed the turnaround. This time, he scored the goal himself, deftly flicking home Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner to spark wild celebrations.

Lionel Messi has confirmed Barcelona players are taking a 70 per cent pay cut during the coronavirus pandemic.

Additional funds will be directed to club staff throughout the crisis with a statement made on Monday following reports that players were in dispute with the club over how big a cut they would take.

Negotiations were reported as ongoing between the squad and board over the exact nature of the reduction, with claims the players were only willing to accept a 50 per cent cut, but a breakthrough has now been made.

As well as taking a 70 per cut pay cut, stars will make contributions to ensure ordinary staff receive their salary in full during the suspension of football.
