After doubling Leicester’s lead from the penalty spot in the 74th minute, Jamie Vardy cupped his ears to the empty stand behind the West Brom goal

Aina’s signing follows the capture of midfielder Harrison Reed, goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, right back Kenny Tete and midfielder Mario Lemina and left back Antonee Robinson while winger Anthony Knockaert’s loan move was made permanent.

For someone who has become one of Chelsea’s forgotten men in recent years it’s perhaps important to note it was the Belgium striker who came on against West Brom when the score was 0-0 with the Premier League title still to be clinched.

Last season’s Golden Boot winner had just extended his 100 per cent scoring record at The Hawthorns to five games and – cheeky as always – he could not resist a dig at the absent Albion supporters who were doubtless berating him in front of their televisions.

Schalke was due to host Bavarian side Schweinfurt, but the game was called off on Friday following a complaint from Türkgücü Munich.

Türkgücü contends it should be playing Schalke as it was the local regional league leader ahead of Schweinfurt when the division resumed after its pandemic-induced break. Bavarian soccer authorities had already promoted Türkgücü to the third division for the new season, making second-placed Schweinfurt the best Bavarian amateur side at the time of registration for the cup.

It will be Leverkusen´s first game without influential players Kai Havertz and Kevin Volland after their departures for Chelsea and Monaco, respectively, though Peter Bosz´s team has Patrik Schick, who played on loan for Leipzig last season.

Benrahma closes in on Palace move

Crystal Palace are in pole position to sign £20m-rated Brentford star Said Benrahma this summer. The winger was also absent during the Bees’ 1-0 defeat at St Andrew’s.

Last season Palace’s biggest weakness was the number of goals they scored. Only Norwich, who finished bottom, scored fewer (26) than Palace’s 31.

A 14th-placed finish was largely down to Palace’s strong defensive record.

It is worth assessing how it has got to this point where the Belgium striker, who continues to flourish for his country as seen on Tuesday night when he scored twice in the 5-1 win over Iceland, has fallen so out of favour at Stamford Bridge.
