Arsenal have been fined £20,000 for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion against Manchester City.

Leeds United have warned that parents of children who run onto the pitch on matchdays will receive a one-year ban from attending matches at Elland Road. This is after a plague of begging brats running onto the pitch to ask for shirts from the players, a step on from the pathetic placards begging for a shirt you often see in the crowd.

Tottenham Hotspur have hit out at their fans after homophobic chanting was heard during the team's defeat to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. Spurs have urged supporters not to use the offending chant in future.

Middlesbrough defender Marc Bola has been given a warning over a tweet he made in 2012 which referenced sexual orientation. The player was just 14 at the time.

A Crawley statement read: "Despite working with Sussex County Police, Sutton United Football Club and after reviewing substantial CCTV records and witness statements, the club have been unable to identify the alleged abuse and are therefore cannot progress with this matter further. Crawley Town Football Club would like to reiterate its commitment to stamping out any type of discriminatory abuse at The People's Pension Stadium and within the wider footballing world."


Pandemic Problems

Both Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola and Burnley's manager Sean Dyche have tested positive for CV ahead of their team's FA Cup third round ties. City assistant Juanma Lillo is also positive and the team will be led by Rodolfo Borrell against League Two club Swindon Town.

Gabon and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has also tested positive with just 4 days before they open their African Cup of Nations campaign in Cameroon. Also missing will be OGC Nice's former Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina, who also tested positive.

Inter Milan's trip to Bologna was postponed after the local health authority placed the entire Bologna team into isolation. Unfortunately for Inter, they still had to turn up and train before the game as normal as Serie A refuses to cancel games due to the pandemic. Officials even went to the extent of checking the pitch was playable and testing the goal-line technology was working despite the absence of Bologna! There are three more games in jeopardy as Salernitana, Udinese and Torino have all also been forced into quarantine by their local health authorities.


Ighalo Missing For Nigeria

There have been more problems for Nigeria ahead of the AFCON after losing out on a call up for Watford forward Emmanuel Dennis after notifying the Hornets too late of his late addition to the squad. Now they have lost out on Idion Ighalo as Saudi Arabian club Al Shabab have refused to release the former Manchester United striker due to not receiving notification of his inclusion in the squad in time. Nigeria are suffering after changing their head coach at the last minute and his decision to call up a number of players that were not included in their initial squad.
