    The right-back, 32, drove forward in the first of four minutes of added time as the Clarets looked for a dramatic winner.
    But his desperation got the better of him as he chased after the ball following a heavy touch.
    Aston Villa defender Chambers goes for the ball as reckless Lowton comes in at high speed and could have easily done serious damage to his opponent.
    Ref Paul Tierney judged it to be serious foul play and immediately brandished the red card.

permutations from epic Prem title race to relegation fight and Europe
    VAR John Brooks did look at the incident but stuck with the on-field decision.
    However, some fans on Twitter were unconvinced and felt that was too harsh – citing the relatively little contact and Lowton seemingly winning the ball.
    One said: “Reckless, no control of the follow-through. Red for me.”
    Another agreed: “Red card all day long.”

    But a third wrote: “Wins the ball. Single footed. Catches him with momentum. Its a yellow every day of the week.”
    And a final user commented: “Not even sure it should be a foul, frankly. He plays the ball, wins the ball cleanly, and momentum takes him through.
    “He can’t stop dead and he has to try to win the ball. Aren’t many clean tackles out there where a player isn’t hit in the aftermath.”
    Lowton’s sending off came at the end of a 1-1 draw at Villa Park.

    Ashley Barnes’ penalty put Mike Jackson’s side ahead just before half-time but Emi Buendia equalised on 48 minutes.
    The draw was enough to see Burnley leapfrog Leeds out of the bottom three.
    And with Everton winning against Crystal Palace, it is a straight shootout between the Clarets and the Whites to avoid the drop.
    Burnley face Newcastle at home knowing they simply have to match Leeds’ result at Brentford to stay up because their goal difference is 20 better.
    However, they must do it without Lowton who will join fellow defenders Ben Mee and Erik Pieters as well as Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Jay Rodriguez, Ashley Westwood and Matej Vydra on the sideline at Turf Moor on Sunday. More

    Chelsea 1-1 Leicester LIVE RESULT: Marcos Alonso goal not enough for Blues as Foxes earn point – Premier League reaction

    CHELSEA failed to bounce back from Wembley disappointment as they were held by Leicester at Stamford Bridge.James Maddison fired the Foxes ahead early on in West London before Marcos Alonso equalised for the Blues.
    The decisive miss
    Christian Pulisic had the golden opportunity to be the match-winner this evening, but he couldn’t convert from close range.
    It won’t effect the table, but he might not sleep too well tonight.
    Credit: Reuters
    Rodgers full of praise for Maddison
    I’m really proud of the players. You know when you come here, you’ve got to defend well. With a bit more belief, we could have created more opportunities. Chelsea are a top level team, and we defended well.Brendan Rodgers, Leicester City boss
    On the goalscorer, James Maddison:
    His goal was outstanding. He plays with belief. He’s a real talent, an outstanding young player, getting better all the time.Brendan Rodgers, Leicester City boss

    What it means
    The point means Chelsea have as good as secured third place. They would need to lose to Watford, and Tottenham would have to score in excess of 17 goals against Norwich. Stranger things have hap.. actually no, they haven’t. Chelsea are home and dry. Leicester stay in 9th, with Southampton to play on Sunday.

    Full-time – Chelsea 1-1 Leicester
    Stuart Atwell blows his whistle (thank God) and the the points are shared in West London.
    It felt like the second half was destined for goals, but it was quite the opposite. Chelsea should have won it with Pulisic. But the forward fluffed his lines from 5 yards.
    Leicester were bystanders for large periods of the game, with the home side piling on the pressure. But the Foxes defended dilligently against an incredibly wasteful Chelsea.
    Bar a couple of great goals in the first half courtesy of Maddison and Alonso, it was quite dull in truth – even Tuchel looks half-asleep…

    90+4, Azpilicueta is given plemty of room down the right. He cuts it back for Loftus-Cheek who slips in James. The full-back is swarmed and he can’t get his shot away. That should be that.
    Chelsea 1-1 Leicester
    90+3, Ziyech attempts to bundle his way into the box, but Evans gets it clear.
    Chelsea 1-1 Leicester
    90, The board goes up for four added minutes here. Perhaps to a few fans’ relief. The life has been sucked out of the game. Not to sound too dramatic.

    87, Barnes is nearly set free in behind, but Mendy is quick off his line to make it his.

    85, Big chance for Havertz!
    Ziyech spots the German on the move and slides the ball into him. Havertz turns to shoot first time, but it’s a swing and a miss and the chance is gone.
    Chelsea have not had their shooting boots on this evening.

    84, Fofana then looks to be going down a blind alley, but draws a foul from Jorginho in a good area.
    Maddison and Dewsbury-Hall are behind it… Chelsea clear.
    Chelsea 1-1 Leicester
    83, Havertz is a little over-enthusiastic on Fofana, bundling him to the floor. The Leicester defender then punches the air in front of the away end, receiving a big roar. You sense Leicester would be happy with a draw now.

    80, Ziyech shakes off his man and slips in Azpilicueta who has men in the middle, but he can’t find any of them. They are doing everything but score at the moment.

    77, It’s the end of Lukaku’s night. Havertz is on in his place.

    75, Ziyech shrugs off his man before finding a yard for a cross. But it’s straight at Schmeichel.

    72, Tuchel decides it’s time to switch things up. Pulisic and Kante make way for Azpilicueta and Loftus-Cheek.
    Still no sign of Mason Mount.

    Alonso’s ball in bounces out to Rudiger who turns and strikes one at Schmeichel who parries it away.

    James has the chance from the free kick.

    62, Pulisic with a shocking miss!
    James slides through Lukaku who puts it on a plate for Pulisic. The American fluffs his line to the nth degree, scuffing his effort wide from 5 yards. That was the definition of a sitter. Looks even worse on the replays.

    Is Norwich vs Tottenham on TV? Channel, live stream, kick-off time, team news for HUGE Premier League game

    TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR can clinch Champions League qualification at Norwich City in their final game of the season.Victory or even a draw will be enough – regardless of Arsenal’s result at home to Everton.
    Follow live updates during the game below…

    Spurs only need a point against Norwich courtesy of Arsenal’s loss to NewcastleCredit: Getty
    Spurs’ top four dreams seemed to have slipped away from them when Arsenal were four points ahead with only three games to go.
    However, the 3-0 pummelling over their bitter North London rivals, followed by a marginal win against Burnley launched Tottenham into fourth spot.
    And the Gunners’ humiliating loss to Newcastle on Monday has meant that Antonio Conte’s men are in need of just ONE point to secure Champions League football for next season.
    However, it’s not a done deal as Tottenham failed to get into the top four from this exact position in 2006.
    What time does Norwich vs Tottenham kick off?

    Norwich City host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, May 22 – the final day of the season.
    It is scheduled to kick off at 4pm UK time.
    Carrow Road in Norwich is the assigned venue for this crucial match which can hold around 27,000 spectators.
    Spurs steamrolled the Canaries when the sides met earlier on in the Premier League campaign.

    What TV channel is Norwich vs Tottenham on and can I live stream it?

    Sky Sports have not announced Norwich vs Tottenham as one of their allocated fixtures.
    Man City vs Aston Villa, Liverpool vs Wolves and Brentford vs Leeds are the games they have chosen.

    Team news
    Canaries boss Dean Smith has another two injury concerns to deal with following the 1-1 tie with Wolves.
    Mathias Normann and Billy Gilmour both sustained ankle injuries and the pair had to be dragged off early which makes them a doubt for the final game of the season.
    Which doesn’t bode well for Smith as he already has to cope without: Andrew Ombamidele, Adam Idah, Kenny McLean, Josh Sargent, Christoph Zimmerman and loanee Ozan Kabak.
    Elsewhere, Antonio Conte should have no fresh injury concerns going into this crucial match against Norwich.
    However, the usual suspects of Oliver Skipp, Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga will remain side-lined.
    Whilst Cristian Romero and Sergio Reguilon have been casted as huge doubts.

    After seeing Andersen push away the former Spurs man, the female supporter – who previously told him to “f**k off” – leaned over the stand and lashed out the Eagles star.
    And she did it in plain sight of a pitchside policeman!
    Footy fans were left stuffed by the bizarre incident, with one saying: “Some middle-aged woman with an Everton shirt just smacked Joachim Andersen’s butt, this game really has been pure chaos.”

    Koulibaly speaks on Napoli future
    Man United transfer target Kalidou Koulibaly has opened up on his Napoli future.
    Koulibaly told Onze Mondial: “I would not cause an argument to leave the club. If I ever did leave Napoli, I would do it on my terms.
    “There would be no argument and I would speak to the president. He tries to listen to the fans who don’t want me go and every time has asked for a fee that was too high.”
    Newcastle and Man City have also been linked with the defender.
    Nunez ‘snubs’ Man United
    Darwin Nunez has reportedly rejected an approach from Manchester United to sign him from Benfica.
    Arsenal and Newcastle have both been linked along with the Red Devils in making a move.
    And French giants Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on Nunez.
    Now RMC Sport have offered an update on his situation, claiming that United have informed the star’s camp that they would be willing to pay £67.8million for him.
    However, it states that Nunez has refused United’s approach.
    He wants to sign for a club that will be competing in the Champions League next season – with United only able to qualify for the Europa League at best.
    Pogba made City U-turn
    Paul Pogba agreed a controversial transfer to Manchester City but made a dramatic U-turn amid fears of fan backlash, according to reports.
    Pogba had even agreed personal terms with Manchester City ahead of a potential move, according to The Times.
    But the Frenchman is said to have then turned down a move across town from Old Trafford to the Etihad.
    Pogba is claimed to have been concerned by the potential backlash he would inevitably have faced from the United faithful.
    The Times go on to report Pogba reckoned life in Manchester would have become “unbearable” if he made the high-profile switch to United’s bitter rivals.
    Ten Hag spotted
    Erik ten Hag has been spotted leaving the Man United’s London office ahead of taking charge.
    He arrived in London on a private jet on Wednesday alongside assistant Mitchell van der Gaag.
    The duo had previously been working for the Red Devils remotely, so as not to distract from Ralf Rangnick’s preparations for United’s final game of the season against Crystal Palace.
    But the soon-to-be manager did visit United’s southern office in the West End to meet up with his new bosses.
    A photo showed Ten Hag, dressed in a light suit with a blue shirt, in the back seat of a motor departing the premises alongside his agent Kees Vos.
    Now he could be set to attend United’s final game of the season.

    Man United scrap awards
    Man United have reportedly CANCELLED their end of season awards ceremony after a request from the players.
    The Red Devils will post their worst-ever Premier League points tally regardless of Sunday’s result at Crystal Palace.
    And their shocking season meant United stars were too embarrassed for the awards night to go ahead, according to the Mirror.
    Each year the club host a glitzy end-of-season do to recognise the best performers over the course of the season from both the first-team and the academy.
    The black-tie event held at Old Trafford has occupied a regular spot on the calendar during the final two weeks of the season for the last 10 years.
    But despite Covid-19 cancelling the last two editions, the players were not keen on the night going ahead this year.
    Matic: We’re doing our best
    Nemanja Matic has told Man United fans that the players are doing their best despite going through a rough patch.
    Matic said whilst pleading for fans the carry on supporting the club: “I know that we have had a couple of difficult seasons but I just want the fans to know that, at the training ground, we’re doing our best, and United will come back, for sure.”
    But the midfielder who is leaving United this summer insisted United will be back on top one day.
    He added: “It’s going to take some time but United will be back. Keep supporting the team. Stay together.”
    Beckham speaks on Real Madrid number
    David Beckham has revealed he became Real Madrid No 23 shirt to honour Michael Jordan – as he knew he couldn’t have Raul’s No7 top.
    The midfielder had to ditch the No7 he’d worn so iconically for the Red Devils and continued to don as England skipper in earning 115 caps.
    But he was delighted to instead pay homage to his ‘inspiration Jordan.
    He told a Complex store video: “The Number 7 was worn by Raul, the captain, the God of Real Madrid, so I was never going to get the No7.
    “So they said, ‘OK, these numbers are available’. I said, ‘well, 23, it has to be 23’. 
    “I’ve always been a fan of Jordan, but I think there are so many cultures that have been inspired by him, his game. 
    “And as you see it now – the world is inspired by him.”
    Elanga on United atmposhere
    Anthony Elanga has declared that everyone at Man United pushes each other to do better.
    In an interview with the club, he said: ““Competition is healthy, especially in the environment I am in.
    “I feel like everyone is pushing each other to become the best version of themselves [and] it shows, even in training.
    “Competition is something you need in a big team like Manchester United. If you want to become the best, you’ve got to compete with the best.”
    Matic praises United youngster
    Nemanja Matic has heaped praise on Man United youngster Hannibal Mejbri.
    Matic said to United’s website: “I have to say that Hannibal is a fantastic player and a great character.
    “The talent he has, he needs to use that. I really want to see him in the future and how he will grow.
    “I hope to see him get more minutes. I think that every time I see him in training, he surprises me with his quality, he’s still young, but I’m very excited.”
    Robbie Savage expresses joy
    Robbie Savage is delighted that his son Charlie was given a new long-term deal with Man United.
    Robbie said after his 19-year-son was handed the extension: “”So proud, thank you to everyone involved.
    “Huge thank you to Chris and Jake at new era.”
    Man United close in on Timber
    Man United appear to be on the verge of closing in on the signing of Ajax defender Jurrien Timber.
    Incoming Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag has been linked with bringing one of his current top stars with him to Old Trafford.
    Now the Netherlands centre-half looks set to complete the move to the Premier League.
    The 20-year-old star is represented by Forza Sports Group.
    And the company has sparked speculation a transfer is imminent by seemingly dropping a big hint online.
    They posted a clip on social media of an airport and captioned it with: “Deal closing time…”

    McClaren will be a good coach
    Steve McClaren will be a good coach at Man United although he wasn’t a great manager, Paul Parker claims.
    Parker told indiabetting.co.in: “Steve McClaren is a very good coach. As a manager, he wasn’t successful.
    “There are people who can coach and people who can manage. And there are only a few managers that we can talk about doing both, and who have done that and have been deemed as great managers.
    “Steve McClaren worked at United for a number of years so he’s got a basic idea of what may be needed.
    “Manchester United have to move on as a club from top to bottom from what they are doing and it can’t be the same things that made them into the club they are, they have to move a little bit with the times.
    “At the moment, Manchester United haven’t been adapting, they’ve been living in this world like the way it used to be.”
    How Ten Hag should treat players
    Erik ten Hag needs to treat all Man United players the same, Paul Parker claims.
    He told indiabetting.co.in: “I think someone who comes in and just talks and doesn’t stutter and does not make eye contact. I would imagine, he knows all that stuff, it’s all the part of management. Hopefully, he is going to be a manager and not just a head coach.”
    “Not someone who’s gonna walk in and start looking around and going “well, he’s earned that much money, he’s earned that much money,” and you think: Oh, I can’t have a go at him because he sells so many shirts and he’s got so many followers on Instagram.”
    “Go in there, everyone is in exactly the same boat and you treat all of them the same, nothing different, and that’s the bit that I would be looking for.”
    What Ten Hag needs to do
    Erik ten Hag needs to stamp his authority at Man United immediately, according to Paul Parker.
    Parker told indiabetting.co.in: “I think it’s the same thing for any job really, establishing authority. You know, you walk in your first day into any job, I mean, it’s gonna be difficult.
    “The first thing; your first team talk, your first group talk, your squad talk, that’s your most important one. It is the one that makes you or breaks you. It Is the one where anybody who will have a bad attitude will be looking for an excuse to dig into him. He’s got to let everyone know, that he’s not gonna suffer any problems.
    “It’s as simple as that. He’s come across there. His reputation is at stake as well. You know he’s a well-known man in his own country. He’s managed a very successful club, a big club, a renowned club and he surely hasn’t gone to Manchester United to ruin all that.”
    “He’s in a position now, where it’s gonna make him or break him. That’s what Manchester United has done to the previous four or five managers, I’ve lost count now. So, he’s got to go in there and do something different to all of them.
    “If he hasn’t been given the license to do it, just grab it. Just grab it now and just say I’m gonna take it and if you don’t like it get rid of me. He can’t have people messing him about. He can’t have people who are not going to give him a hundred per cent.”
    Juventus plan Prem raid
    Juventus chief Federico Cherubini has reportedly arrived in London as he looks to secure a deal for Chelsea’s Jorginho.
    The Italian giants appear to have won the race to sign Manchester United’s Paul Pogba on a free transfer when the Frenchman’s contract expires next month.
    And the 29-year-old could be lining-up alongside Jorginho when he returns to Turin next term.
    Todd Boehly’s consortium hope to complete their takeover of Chelsea by the end of the month, which will finally allow them to get back in the game transfer wise.
    However, a big-name departure could be the first topic of conversation, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
     They state that Juventus have made Italy international midfielder Jorginho, 30, one of their top targets and have now begun their attempt to get him.
    Charlie Savage signs long-term deal
    Charlie Savage has signed a long-term contract with Man United.
    Robbie Savage’s son said on Instagram after penning the deal: “Great way to end an amazing season. Delighted to sign a long-term contract with this special club.
    “Thank you to my family for their support, without them this would never have been possible.
    “Also, a big shoutout to the @neweraglobalsports team for help making this happen, especially to Jake, Chris and Rio.
    “Time for a short break before going again and giving everything to keep pushing forward.”
    Wan-Bissaka allowed to leave Man Utd, say reports
    Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be allowed to leave permanently or on loan, report Sky Sports.
    Wan-Bissaka, 24, has endured a difficult campaign at Old Trafford.
    The full-back has started only 25 games with Diogo Dalot being preferred of late.
    SunSport exclusively revealed last week that ex-United manager Jose Mourinho is keen on Wan-Bissaka for Roma.
    Crystal Palace, who sold Wan-Bissaka to United for £50million in 2019, would be open to re-signing him.
    The full-back is also drawing admiring glances from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.
    Dean Henderson in Newcastle to discuss move
    Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is “closing in on a move” to Newcastle United.
    The Manchester Evening News claim that Henderson, 25, was in Newcastle for talks on Wednesday.
    Discussions have been held over a loan deal but a permanent move has “not been ruled out”.
    Van der Gaag and McClaren to be part of coaching staff, say reports
    Erik ten Hag is claimed to want Mitchell Van der Gaag as his assistant at Old Trafford.
    Van Der Gaag is likely to be the man tasked with helping Ten Hag salvage the sinking ship at Manchester United as his No2.
    And reports say that Steve McClaren will also be re-joining the club.
    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren will be part of new Man Utd coaching staff, confirmed.
    “Full agreement at final stages and set to be signed with both of them.
    “#MUFC Official statement for McClaren to join United could be next week, as @MrStephenHowson reports.”
    United’s transfer struggles
    Former Man United star Teddy Sheringham reckons the Red Devils have fallen down the pecking order as a destination for big players.
    Sheringham made the claims whilst discussing United’s interest in Harry Kane.
    The former England striker told Genting Casino: “Manchester United are falling down the pecking order for big players, but having said that, they are still a massive club, they’re still a massive draw.
    “If they do come calling, it’ll be hard to turn them down. Even if they’re not in any European competitions next season, it would still be a very tough thing to say no to Manchester United.”
    United should sell Henderson, says Paul Parker
    Ex-England international Paul Parker said that Dean Henderson will refuse to sit on the bench again all season.

    In a chat with indiabetting.co.in, the former United defender was asked whether Man Utd should sell Dean Henderson to rivals Newcastle.
    Parker said: “I personally do.
    “Give him the opportunity and go and prove it. You can prove it at Newcastle with the pressure on him from their fans.
    “If he’s got an opportunity to play regular football, he’s gonna want it.
    “He’s not gonna be sitting down, his ego is not allowing him.”
    Pogba to re-join Juve, say reports
    Juventus have reportedly offered Paul Pogba £120,000-a-week wages to re-join them this summer, writes Anthony Chapman.
    But the Manchester United exile could scupper a free transfer as he seeks a higher salary from his former side.
    Goal claims Juventus have a three-year contract on the table for Pogba, 29 – despite the Italians claiming they have a “gentleman’s agreement” to talk with United first.

    The midfielder spent four years in Turin between 2012 and 2016, winning four titles and two Italian Cups.
    And fallen giants Juve, guaranteed to finish fourth on Saturday, want Pogba 2.0 to resurrect their Serie A ambitions next term.
    However, issues remain over the Frenchman’s wage demands.
    Ronaldo still has key role at Man Utd, says Winterburn
    Cristiano Ronaldo will still offer huge value to Manchester United next season, claims Nigel Winterburn.
    The Arsenal legend would be stunned to see Ronaldo leave the Red Devils after just one year back at Old Trafford, writes Etienne Fermie.
    Ronaldo, 37, has been linked with a summer exit amid uncertainty over his role under incoming boss Erik ten Hag.

    Winterburn, 58, told Paddy Power: “Manchester United won’t just bring Cristiano Ronaldo in for one season and ship him out so quickly, it just won’t happen.
    “He still offers huge value to Manchester United, and we’ve seen that in his goalscoring record. His age is but a number.
    “He has huge experience, and he could play an important role if United opt to go down the younger route in setting an example of how to train and play, as well as what it means to win and lose.
    “He can help those younger players around the training ground and if he can accept that, he might be used in a slightly different way and have less game time.
    “It doesn’t surprise me that he’s still there. If you have someone of his quality, you have to use them and use them in the right system.
    “I believe there’s a role for him to play next season at United, he’s a superstar.”
    Man Utd transfer target Antony sends message to Ten Hag
    Manchester United transfer target Antony promised to “always stand” with his Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.
    The Dutch manager has taken charge of his final match with the Amsterdam giants.
    as revealed by SunSport, winger Antony could be top of the Man Utd wishlist.

    In a farewell video message for the departing boss, Antony – who is reportedly keen to test himself in England – said: “I want to wish you all the best at your new club.
    “I also want to thank you for everything you taught me.
    “I am thankful all the opportunities and learning every day.
    “Know that I will always stand with you if you need me.”
    Ten Hag brought Antony to Ajax in 2020 and the forward, 22, has racked up 22 goals and 20 assists in his 79 appearances as well as two Eredivisie titles.
    Man Utd fan campaign to ‘Boycott Adidas’
    Manchester United fans have ramped up their anti-Glazer tactics by starting a “#BoycottAdidas” trend on Twitter.
    Some United supporters threatened not to wear Adidas products until the Glazers sell the club.
    Adidas are the club’s official kit manufacturers.

    Fan group The 1958 revealed on Wednesday night that they would be targeting a different stakeholder each week.
    They wrote on Twitter: “Calling all reds! Tonight we launch our worldwide cyber campaign against the Glazer stakeholders.
    “Each week we’ll be focusing on one Stakeholder at a time and posting two easy tasks every few days that week.
    “This week we start with: Adidas.
    “Do your bit, save your club.”

    What can be decided on the Premier League final day?
    Man City will win the Premier League title with victory at home to Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa.
    But they will be pipped by Liverpool if they fail to win and the Reds are victorious at home to Wolves.
    Tottenham will earn a return to the Champions League if they secure a draw at basement club Norwich.
    However, should they lose, Arsenal will qualify for the Champions League with victory at home to Everton.

    Manchester United are currently set for Europa League football next season.
    But if they fail to win at Crystal Palace and West Ham win at Brighton, new boss Erik ten Hag will suffer the ignominy of starting in the Europa Conference League.
    Burnley are level on points with Leeds but have a far superior goal difference.
    That means they will avoid relegation if they either beat Newcastle or secure the same result as Leeds manage to secure at Brentford.
    Which Premier League games are TV on the final day?
    The following Premier League games are being shown on Sky Sports on the final day:

    Man City vs Aston Villa – Sky Sports Main Event

    New Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag urged to stick by Marcus Rashford despite striker’s poor form

    Ten Hag, who was pictured with agent Kees Vos leaving the club’s London HQ last night, has been discussing recruitment plans and wants a new striker to complement Cristiano Ronaldo.
    But staff at the club are convinced that Rashford still has a bright future, despite his disappointing season.
    Interim manager Ralf Rangnick has been at pains to emphasise how good Rashford is in training — but remains at a loss as to why he cannot transfer that form to match days.
    This season has seen his worst scoring return since breaking into the first team back in 2015-16.

Dest ‘wants £24m Man Utd transfer’, Wan Bissaka told he can leave
    Rashford has just five goals after netting 22 and 21 in the previous two seasons.
    He is worried about his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup in Qatar in November.
    His current deal runs until 2023 —  with United having an option to extend by a further year.
    Local lad Rashford had never wanted a move away from Old Trafford but did start considering it this season over a lack of starts.
