Chelsea away. Injuries all over the shop. Porous defence. Lack of confidence. Fans less than enthusiastic.

Renato Sanches' prolonged career malaise continued with another anonymous performance in Swansea's 1-0 loss to Chelsea on Wednesday night.

However, in a slight change of pace for the stagnant Portuguese midfielder, he did make his way onto the post-match highlight reel courtesy of a truly woeful misplaced pass.

Bangkok (AFP) – The English Football League apologised on Saturday after error-riddled graphics appeared on their online broadcast of the first round draw for the Carabao Cup, including inaccurately announcing an extra Charlton Athletic match.

Glitches in the draw, which took place in Bangkok on Friday night, caused confusion and much merriment among fans but is a major publicity gaff for the EFL and the cup’s new sponsor, Thai energy drinks firm Carabao.
