Sunday Morning Sports Update

SOCCER

Chelsea can join Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table this afternoon.

Maurizio Sarri’s side will be hoping to make it six weeks from six games, after a perfect start to life under the Italian.


Eden Hazard is expected to return for Chelsea having sat out the Europa League win against Paok (Pow-k).

Meanwhile West Ham are sweating on the fitness of winger Marko Arnautovic, who injured his knee in last week’s win against Everton.

That was their first win of the season, ending a run of four defeats in a row.

That game starts at half one, while at four o clock Arsenal host Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

Like Chelsea, the Gunners come into the game of the back of a European win, their fourth in a row in all competitions.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Mick-eh-tar-yan) and Lucas Torrieira are injury doubts for Arsenal, while Everton could hand a debut to their Colombian summer signing Yerry Mina.

The defender joined from Barcelona at the end of the transfer window.

In Scotland, Celtic are away to Kilmarnock in the early kickoff at 12.30.

The 7 in a row champions will move within three points of leaders Hearts with a win.

Their Old Firm rivals Rangers are also in action, hosting St Johnstone at three.

GOLF

Tiger Woods leads Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose by three shots heading into the final round of the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

The 14 time major winner tees off alongside McIlroy in the final pairing, just after seven o’clock Irish time.

Woods leads the way on 12 under, with McIlroy and Rose within touching distance on minus 9.

On the European Tour, Shane Lowry tees off shortly in his final round of the Portugal Masters.

He’s 12 under par, but 7 back from leader Lucas Herbert.

Paul Dunne is currently 8 under after 6.

RACING

There’s an eight-race card today at Navan with the first going to post at 2.05pm.
