LEWIS HAMILTON was made to work far harder than expected for victory in the British Grand Prix.

The two Mercedes drivers appeared to be cruising to a one-two before Bottas suffered a puncture with two laps left.

And then Hamilton himself had to bring his Mercedes home following a puncture, as he ended up edging out Max Verstappen by just five seconds.

Red Bull may rue what might have been after pitting Verstappen with a lap left to save his tyres when victory may have been in sight.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Donny van de Beek will get more chances at Manchester United

ole gunnar solskjaer insists donny van de beek will get more chances at manchester united

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has promised that £40million signing Donny van de Beek is an important member of his squad after he caught the eye in their 3-0 win over Brighton in the Carabao Cup.

The Dutchman started just his second game in all competitions against the Seagulls but he has struggled to find his way into the line-up in the Premier League since joining from Ajax last month.

He scored on his club debut against Crystal Palace in the season opener as he came off the bench during the 3-1 defeat, and was sent on in stoppage time in their 3-2 win over Brighton on Saturday.

His lack of game time prompted comments from his agent, who said he ‘didn’t like it at all’, but now Solskjaer has lavished praise on the 23-year-old after his display – which saw him start as an attacking midfielder before moving to left wing – and believes he is ‘vital’ to the team. 

‘He’s got very high footballing intelligence and tactically he’s gone through the Ajax system. Dutch football is tactical, he knows football, he’s got his head screwed on.’ 

‘He’s a different type of left-sided player compared to Dan James and Marcus Rashford but coming inside and finding good pockets why not, he can play loads of different positions, which sometimes is a strength for a player.’

Solskjaer admitted he was pleased with van de Beek versatility and said he would get more opportunities to shine in the near future. 

‘I remember myself sometimes, right-wing, left-wing centre forward, No. 10,’ he added. ‘Donny is one the coach will always look to have in a squad.’ 

‘We know how many games we’re going to play and he’s going to be vital. 

‘He’s proved in every game he’s been a part of that he’s got high quality, he’s such a clever mover, he plays the game simply but effectively, with high quality. He’s knocking on the door.’

In United’s second game against Brighton in the space of a few days, the Red Devils secured back-to-back victories after a dramatic 3-2 win on Saturday assisted by VAR after the final whistle. 

On Wednesday it was more comfortable for Solskjaer’s men as Scott McTominay opened the scoring before Juan Mata and Paul Pogba wrapped up a routine win.

The team face a huge game against Tottenham at Old Trafford this Sunday which should set the tone for the early race for the Champions League spots.

Newport County 1-1 Newcastle (4-5 on pens): Toon through to last eight after penalty shootout

Steve Bruce says he does not send out his Newcastle United team to play badly, and of course he doesn’t.

But there is little evidence of what they are trying to achieve after another fortuitous night in which the head coach was again forced to defend his tactics.

The problem is, supporters and observes are scratching their head as to what those tactics are right now.

Bottom of the Expected Goals (XG) table for over a year, they continue to give it large in the XL department. Expected Luck, that is.

To progress past League Two opposition here they needed a late equaliser from Jonjo Shelvey to force penalties and a spot-kick so wild from Newport defender Brandon Cooper that it may well have landed in Cardiff.

Indeed, passage to the last eight was the only positive from an otherwise desperate display. It’s a results business, they say, and Bruce’s aren’t terrible, far from it.

But performances are, and that is the concern among a fanbase who see little identity or progression about their team. Bruce disagrees.

‘I’m manager of Newcastle United and, if you don’t win or perform, you get criticised,’ he said. ‘I agree we didn’t play well enough, but now all of a sudden it’s questioning tactics. I find the whole thing disappointing. We don’t go out there not wanting to play well.’

The outcome was harsh on Mike Flynn’s supposed underdogs, who led from the fifth minute when Tristan Abrahams shot through the floppy palms of Mark Gillespie. The goalkeeper’s error was symptomatic of a weak and witless Newcastle performance during the first half.

On the eve of the game Bruce had spoken forcefully of the need to start positively, well at least he told the media as much. His players clearly weren’t listening.

Given his team’s apparent indifference to their task, he probably should have made his first substitution long before the hour mark, when he turned to his £60million front pairing of Callum Wilson and Joelinton, who later missed in the shootout.

Off came Andy Carroll, whose presence to that point had seemingly been the sole focus of Newcastle’s game-plan. Namely, a hopeful punt in the striker’s direction.

That they were still within one goal of a shootout owed much to Newport’s profligacy. In the three minutes before half-time both midfielder Scott Bennett and forward Padraig Amond leathered narrowly wide from positions of promise inside the area.

Newcastle’s only moment of genuine threat was a Jacob Murphy drive from range that was repelled by goalkeeper Nick Townsend.

The final half hour offered much more by way of attacking territory – and so it should – but Townsend’s most taxing duty was taking goal-kicks, and that said much for Newcastle’s finishing before Shelvey’s late intervention, a fine curling effort into the top corner.

It then took a pair of goal-line clearances from Newport defenders to ensure penalties, and a stoppage-time victory for Newcastle would have been unjust.

Bruce disagreed. ‘In my opinion we deserved to go through after a difficult first half, in particular,’ he said.

‘But you have to credit Newport. You can understand why they’ve beaten Watford, Swansea, Middlesbrough, Leeds and Leicester. They’re a decent footballing side. We knew that after watching them against Bolton on Saturday. But we are through and I thought we played very well in the last half hour.’

A fourth-tier team who troubled Bolton, however, should not be causing the same problems for a Premier League side.

But again Bruce and his players found a way to survive, and that is to their credit. He has brought good luck if not a good look to Newcastle, and while that remains so will he.

Manchester United ‘have loan bid REJECTED for Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa’

manchester united have loan bid rejected for fiorentina winger federico chiesa

Manchester United have had a loan enquiry rejected for Italian winger Federico Chiesa, after the Red Devils failed to make any progress in landing Borussia Dortmund‘s Jadon Sancho, according to The Telegraph.

The Old Trafford club still harbour hopes of finalising a deal for Sancho before the transfer window slams shut, however Dortmund have remained steadfast in their valuation of £108million for the England star. 

With just five days of the transfer window remaining, United are looking at alternative options on loan.

Serie A side Fiorentina are not interested in loaning out Chiesa – the 22-year-old is wanted by Juventus who are willing to pay around £45m to secure his services permanently.

Watford’s Senegalese winger Ismaila Sarr is also only available for a permanent deal with the Hornets having no interest in loaning him out. 

Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer’s side retain an interest in taking Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele on a season’s loan, however manager Ronald Koeman wants the Frenchman to remain at the Nou Camp.  

Manchester United cruised into the Carabao Cup quarter finals with a comfortable 3-0 win at Brighton on Wednesday night.

The draw for the next round will take place on October 1, following the conclusion of Liverpool’s game against Arsenal. 

Goals from Scott McTominay, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba ensured the encounter was far more comfortable than the Premier League game between the two sides on Saturday.

Brighton hit the woodwork a record five times and United had to rely on a last-gasp penalty from Bruno Fernandes to claim the points at the Amex.
