Bit of a strange one, but Robin van Persie has had to take to Twitter this morning to refute claims (largely from jilted Chelsea fans it has to be said) that he celebrated his second goal at Stamford Bridge with a 'nazi salute'...

Just to play Devil's advocate for a second, the thrusting of the arm into the air could be construed as a little bit 'Hitler-y' to the untrained eye, though Van Persie was quick to explain his actions, tweeting thusly:

"It has been brought to my attention of some ridiculous allegations concerning my celebration of one of my goals.

Match highlights were hard to find
They came, they saw... they played their reserve team. The Merseyside circus has packed up its travelling roadshow as Liverpool FC move on to their next North American port of call... likely with a full squad. While Toronto fans may have felt a bit ripped off with the quality of players offered by those Reds, many did manage to have a good time at a fairly entertaining 1-1 draw.
