Evening Standard (UK) Gianluca Scamacca takes the lead as West Ham’s supporting cast rises to the occasion against Viborg. Given that West Ham had gone well over 1,000 days without signing a centre-forward, it’s no surprise that Gianluca Scamacca has received the most attention of the club’s six new arrivals this summer. The £30.5million forward scored the opening goal in David Moyes’s side’s 3-1 win over Viborg in the first leg of their Europa Conference League Playoff, a header won and put away with such dominance and ease that it seemed almost unfair. It was a promising start, but Moyes is too old to expect a 23-year-old import with no Premier League experience to carry the scoring burden alone. Evening Standard (UK) Jurgen Klopp blasts Gabby Agbonlahor for her ‘unbelievable’ performance. ‘He wasn’t a mentality monster,’ says Man United critic. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has defended struggling rivals Manchester United and manager Erik ten Hag, issuing a stinging rebuke to Gabriel Agbonlahor in the process. Former Aston Villa stalwart Agbonlahor now works as a talkSPORT radio pundit and, like many others, did not hold back in his criticism of United after their humiliating 4-0 loss to Brentford last Saturday, having also been beaten at home by Brighton on opening weekend. Evening Standard (UK) Live streaming of Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace: How can I watch a Premier League game live on TV in the United Kingdom today? Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace visit Anfield tonight to conclude week two of the Premier League schedule. Jurgen Klopp’s team has already been held to a draw in a game that many expected them to win at newly-promoted Fulham, and he has a number of injury concerns heading into the Palace match. Last season, Vieira led his team to a famous away win at Manchester City, so Palace have experience picking up big wins on the road. Evening Standard (UK) Sir Jim Ratcliffe is interested in purchasing a stake in Manchester United for “long-term ownership.” Sir Jim Ratcliffe wishes to purchase a stake in Manchester United with the intention of eventually taking over the club. Following a dismal start to the new Premier League season and a confused transfer approach, fan anger at the Glazer family, who have been in full control at Old Trafford since 2005, has only grown, with further protests and calls for a sale. According to Bloomberg, the Glazers are considering selling a minority stake in one of the world’s largest sporting institutions and have even held preliminary talks about bringing in a new investor, but they are not willing to give up control.
