Demnach sind 68 Prozent aller Premier-League-Profis doppelt gegen Corona geimpft, 81 Prozent haben zumindest schon eine Dosis erhalten. Weitere Details nannte die Liga nicht. 

Man werde “weiterhin mit den Klubs zusammenarbeiten, um Spieler und Klubangestellte zu einer Impfung zu ermutigen”, heißt es in der Mitteilung.

Die Impfquote hat sich in den vergangenen Wochen offenbar deutlich erhöht. Laut BBC war Ende September nur in sieben Premier-League-Klubs mehr als die Hälfte der Spieler doppelt geimpft.

Ein geheimes Treffen der Premier-League-Klubs endete am Montagabend mit der Anpassung einer Regel, die sich vor allem gegen Newcastle United richtet.

Die Premier League hatte zum Entsetzen vieler ihrer Mitglieder die saudische Übernahme von Newcastle United genehmigt, jetzt scheint die Konkurrenz zu versuchen, dem neuen “Big Player” zumindest das Leben so schwer wie möglich zu machen.

Bei einem geheimen Meeting aller 20 Klubs am Montag votierte dem “Guardian” zufolge die klare Mehrheit für eine vorübergehende Änderung der Regularien. Demnach ist es Klubs ab sofort verboten, Sponsoringverträge mit Unternehmen abzuschließen, die in Verbindung zu ihren eigenen Besitzern stehen.

Damit soll praktisch verhindert werden, dass Newcastle seine neuen saudischen Verbindungen auch dazu nutzt, Sponsoring-Einnahmen zu generieren und sich so beim Financial Fairplay einen Vorteil zu verschaffen. Ähnliches war in der Vergangenheit schon Manchester City vorgeworfen worden, dessen Hauptsponsor die Fluglinie von Abu Dhabi ist, dem Emirat, unter dessen Einfluss der amtierende Meister steht.

ManCity war laut dem Bericht neben Newcastle der einzige Klub, der nicht für die neue Regel stimmte, die vorerst für einen Monat in Kraft tritt und in dieser Zeit von einer Arbeitsgruppe mit Blick auf eine dauerhafte Änderung geprüft werden soll. Newcastle soll sie für wettbewerbs- und gesetzeswidrig halten.

Ogbonna header guides West Ham to victory over Everton

West Ham move into the top six of the Premier League table as Angelo Ogbonna’s header gives the Hammers a hard-fought 1-0 win over Everton.

It looked like neither side would break each other down in a war of attrition at Goodison Park, but Ogbonna rose highest to nod in a corner in the 74th minute to hand West Ham an important three points to bolster their hopes of a top six finish this season.

The result means West Ham leapfrog four clubs into sixth place. Everton, meanwhile, drop down into seventh also on 14 points.

West Ham had over 80 per cent possession in a sleepy opening to the game, but it was Everton who would have the best chance to take the lead just before the half-hour mark when Alex Iwobi failed to turn home Demarai Gray’s low cross from point-blank range. He completely missed the ball and it rolled through his legs.

The visitors grew into the game as the half progressed and thought they took the lead five minutes later. Tomas Soucek tapped in a rebound from a driven strike by Jarrod Bowen, which was tipped into the Czech Republic international’s path by Jordan Pickford, but he was standing in an offside position and it was subsequently ruled out.

Aside from Salomon Rondon narrowly flicking a header past the post in the 52nd minute, the second half was similarly slow to get going, but West Ham did eventually break the deadlock late on thanks to Ogbonna.

The Italian rose ahead of Godfrey and nodded into the far corner beyond Pickford for his first Premier League goal of the season.

Everton failed to really test Fabianski as they looked for an equaliser and it was West Ham who almost extended their lead two minutes from time through Jarrod Bowen, but his curled strike looking for the top corner was parried over the bar by Pickford.

Demba Ba estuvo encerrado en un maletero

El traslado de Demba Ba hasta el estadio del West Ham para cerrar su fichaje se salió de lo normal. El exjugador ha explicado a The Athletic que, para que no se descubriera su fichaje por el West Ham, tuvo que meterse en el maletero de un coche y que un amigo lo llevara al club. “Dijeron que no querían que los periodistas se enteraran, así que obedecí”, ha explicado el senegalés.

El incómodo viaje fue en 2011, cuando dejó el Hoffenheim y fichó por el equipo inglés, en un momento en el que el club estaba peleando por evitar el descenso. “Fue como ‘boom boom’, me estoy golpeando la cabeza en cada esquina”, ha detallado Demba Ba. Allí marcó siete goles en 12 partidos, aunque no sirvieron para evitar que el club descendiera. “Era un buen vestuario, pero al final no teníamos la calidad necesario”, ha admitido.

Seis meses después fichó por el Newcastle, aunque es más conocido su paso por el Chelsea donde estuvo un año y medio. Anunció su retirada hace un mes tras una última etapa en el Lugano suizo.

Tottenham see off Leicester to maintain perfect start in Women's Super League

Tottenham joined north London rivals Arsenal at the top of the Women’s Super League courtesy of a 2-0 win at Leicester.

Arsenal extended their perfect start to the campaign the previous day, and Spurs joined them on four wins from as many games courtesy of goals from Rachel Williams and Angela Addison.

Leicester held their own for most of the first half, but Williams pounced on defensive hesitancy from the Foxes at a corner to fire Spurs ahead on 38 minutes.

Spurs sealed the win on 88 minutes, as Addison capped a flowing passing move to secure the three points.

A header from Dagny Brynjarsdottir and injury-time goal from Yui Hasegawa earned West Ham a 2-0 win at Manchester City.

The defeat leaves City in ninth place, with three defeats on their record from four games.

Everton ran out 3-0 winners at Reading, leaving the home side bottom of the table with zero points to their name.

Anna Anvegard showed great strength to win the ball in the box and rifle a shot into the top corner to open the scoring inside two minutes.

A curling finish from Claire Emslie doubled the advantage, with a deft free-kick from Danielle Turner securing the win.

'I wish I could score every week' – Rice on West Ham's perfect Europa League start

Declan Rice paid tribute to midfield partner Mark Noble after continuing his fine Europa League goalscoring form.

Rice’s first-half finish helped West Ham to a second win in succession in Group H, with Said Benrahma’s late second putting the game against Rapid Vienna beyond doubt.

Despite trouble in the stands at the London Stadium as the two sets of supporters clashed, David Moyes’ side again looked composed and largely untroubled by Rapid Vienna, even after making a number of changes to their first-choice side.

After continuing a perfect start to their continental campaign, Rice revealed he had been released by the club captain’s presence alongside him in midfield and tipped himself to score before the game.

“It was funny – when I knew I was playing with [Mark Noble] tonight, I said to him I’m going to try and bomb on a little bit tonight, and I told him I’d score!” Rice told the West Ham website.

“When the opportunity came I saw there was a bit of space to run into as the play built up. If you don’t make the runs you’re not getting to get a chance and to score again is a really nice feeling. I wish it could be every week!

“[Noble] is special, I’ve managed to spend six seasons with him, the first two as a little kid and four playing with the first team. I’ve learned so much playing next to him, seeing what he’s like as a person and a man.

There’s nobody better to learn from, and I’m going to cherish every chance I get to play with him because it’s his last season.

Noble is in his final season at West Ham after more than 20 years at his boyhood club. The midfielder has made more than 500 appearances in claret and blue.

The win over Rapid Vienna continued a good start to the season for Moyes’ side, who are looking to again challenge for European places, with striker and joint Premier League top scorer Michail Antonio again influential, assisting Rice for his goal.

The England midfielder said that topping their Europa League group is now a major target as the only Group H side to have recorded two wins from two.

“It was amazing,” Rice said at full-time. “We knew as players how big it was and we had to put on a performance. We had to win as well, of course, as all we want to do is top this group.

“We’re taking it a game at a time and, after getting the win in Zagreb, winning again tonight is great for the players and the fans.”

Rice scores winner as West Ham beat Rapid Vienna in Europa League

A much-changed West Ham side made it two wins from two in Group H of the Europa League with a 1-0 win at home to Rapid Vienna on Thursday night.

David Moyes made seven changes to the XI who beat Leeds at the weekend as his West Ham squad continue to juggle the demands of European and domestic football.

However, Rapid Vienna manager, Dietmar Kuhbauer also rested a few players himself, including star man Marco Grull, with the team sitting second-bottom of the Austrian Bundesliga ahead of their must-win game against fellow strugglers WSG Tirol on Sunday.

The Hammers dominated the opening half in their first-ever home Europa League group-stage match and Declan Rice finally made the breakthrough just under half an hour into the game after both he and Craig Dawson had already hit the post twice.

Andriy Yarmolenko lofted a ball over the top of the Rapid defence, Michail Antonio chested it down and squared it to Rice, who tapped it in and celebrated emphatically in front of the riled up opposition fans.

Jessica Naz’s late goal fired Tottenham to a 1-0 win over Reading. Spurs moved top of the table on the back of the victory.

Emily Gielnik‘s breakaway goal was enough to secure a 1-0 win for Aston Villa at previously unbeaten Brighton, while West Ham beat Leicester 4-0.
