Good morning football fans

Liverpool beat West Ham 1-0 at Anfield thanks to Darwin Nunez’s winner on 22 minutes.

Newcastle also defeated Everton 1-0 at St James’ Park after Miguel Almiron’s goal in the 31st minute.

Southampton picked up a 1-0 victory at Bournemouth with Che Adams’ winner in the ninth minute whereas Chelsea remained goalless with Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Manchester United beat Tottenham 2-0 in a crucial Premier League encounter at Old Trafford with Fred and Bruno Fernandes’ goals.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich have made Spurs superstar Harry Kane a “serious contender” as a top transfer target should he decide not to renew his contract, which runs out in 2024.

According to Sky Germany, Bayern are ready and waiting to swoop in if no new deal is signed.

The star striker could be interested to achieve his ambition of winning silverware.

The England captain, who is yet to decide on an extension, was asked ahead of last week’s Champions League match with Eintracht Frankfurt about the Bayern speculation.

Kane said: “I’m focusing on Tottenham Hotspur and trying to do our best. For sure Bayern are a top, top club but all my concentration is on Tottenham.”

And PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo has teased a Premier League move after revealing he held talks with United this summer.

The Red Devils explored the possibility of signing Gakpo when a deal for Antony proved difficult, although they eventually got it over the line.

Southampton were also keen on the winger and rumours had suggested they agreed a £34million fee with the Eredivisie outfit.

Leeds chief Victor Orta travelled to the Netherlands to try to negotiate the transfer, but the forward turned them down after he allegedly refused to board a plane to England to finalise the deal.

Gakpo told The Times: “I was close to leaving, I spoke to Erik ten Hag a few times at Manchester United.

“In the end the deal didn’t go through, which was a shame, for me and my development, and because Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world, but also for PSV, because to transfer a player to Manchester United is a good thing for the club.

“It ended about a week before the end of the transfer window and in that week I had to decide if I would go to Leeds or Southampton. In the end I stayed, but it was a stressful period.”

Finally, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been charged by the FA after being sent off for a furious outburst at the linesman in the 1-0 win over City.

Klopp was fuming at assistant Gary Beswick when he missed a foul on Mohamed Salah by Bernardo Silva.

The German tactician shouted in the linesman’s face, leaving referee Anthony Taylor no choice but to show him a red card.

The 55-year-old head coach has until Friday to respond to the FA’s charge of improper conduct.
