    TOFFEES TROUNCED

    Katie McCabe led Arsenal’s bounce back from a midweek drubbing in Europe with a glorious strike to help defeat Everton.

    The Republic of Ireland ace’s volley and Frida Maanum’s boomer were among the stunning efforts that sealed a 3-0 Gunners win.  

    The strikes by the duo, watched by Arsenal legend Ian Wright who attended the game, looked worthy contenders for the club's goal of the month competition.

    Boss Jonas Eidevall, whose team play Hoffenheim next, said: “We have quite a few of those players who have good, long-distance shooting (skills).

    “I think that really helps us because we are good at playing in behind.

    “But when teams are dropping off against us, we know that we can create something from those shots. It was nice to see."

    KICKING OFF

    Premier League anti-vax stars have been ­likened to drink-drivers as they were urged to get jabbed.

    The top-flight footballers were told by Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi to help protect the public after concerns about their slow vaccine take-up.

    Former vaccines minister Mr Zahawi said: “I urge all footballers to listen to Jurgen Klopp. He says we all have a duty to protect one another.

    “He compared it to being drunk behind the wheel because of the harm to others. 

    “So get yourself protected. Protect your community, protect people that might come into contact with you.”

    Health Secretary Sajid Javid said of those refusing the jab: “It is disappointing. They are role models in society.”

    SAK ATTACK

    Arsenal star Bukayo Saka shares a common England record with Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney after last night’s goal against Andorra.

    Saka is the youngest player to score in consecutive appearances for the Three Lions men’s team since Rooney in 2004.

    The midfielder hit the back of the net during the 5-0 win over Andorra at the age of 20 years and 34 days old, whereas the national team’s record goalscorer recorded his own milestone at 18 years and 241 days.

    However, Saka broke another record that he shares with no one as he is now the youngest ever Arsenal player to net in consecutive games for England.

    The versatile midfielder, though, wasn’t the only player who made history in Saturday’s World Cup qualifier.

    Chelsea ace Ben Chilwell and Manchester City star Jack Grealish finally scored their first ever England goal.

    FAB CAREER

    Ex-Arsenal keeper Lukasz Fabianski bid an emotional farewell to international football in Poland's 5-0 win against San Marino on Saturday.

    The 36-year-old West Ham man was given a standing ovation as he was substituted just before the hour mark.

    He couldn't hold back the tears and was visibly upset as both Poland and San Marino players gave the shotstopper a guard of honour.

    Fabianski had announced his retirement from international football back in the summer but was given this game as a final swan song.

    He was replaced by Radoslaw Majecki after 58 minutes in what was a pre-planned change.

    As he left the field he was embraced by captain Robert Lewandowski and kissed the Poland badge on his shirt.

    INTER WANT JOVIC & LACAZETTE

    Inter Milan have identified Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic and Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette as key transfer targets.

    According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter want to sign a proven striker to back-up Lautaro Martinez, who is due to sign a new deal at the club.

    The Serie A champions don’t want to take a gamble on an up-and-coming star.

    WHAT ABOU THAT

    Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton are not alone in their bid to sign Olympiacos star Pape Abou Cisse in January.

    Reports emerged on Friday suggesting that the three Premier League sides are keeping tabs on Cisse ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

    It has also been claimed that the Gunners, Reds and Toffees had scouts in Istanbul last week when Olympiacos beat Fenerbahce 3-0 in the Europa League.

    SunSport can confirm those reports but sources suggest that the centre-back's agent has received enquiries from various other clubs as well.

    That means Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton are set for a bidding war if they go ahead with a swoop for the Senegal international.

    STARS AND STRIPES

    Former Arsenal ace Yunus Musah has explained why he switched international allegiance from England to the USA.

    The 18-year-old represented the Young Lions at youth level and has even been described as Paul Pogba-like by his former U17s boss Steve Cooper.

    But after leaving the Gunners for Valencia in Spain last year, he has now opted for a change at international level too.

    And after starring on his latest appearance for the Stars and Stripes last night, Musah has now revealed the reasons behind his decision.

    He told CBS Sports: “It was a mixture of things.

    “I’m really into the project we have of building this team, this new identity and trying to change the view of American soccer in the world.

    “That really inspired me and was one of the things I really wanted to be involved in.”

    PAIN IN THE ARSE

    Arsenal and Tottenham transfer target Lautaro Martinez will sign a new contract at Inter Milan 'within ten days', says club CEO for sport Giuseppe Marotta.

    The highly rated Argentine's contract expires in June 2023 and he's been heavily linked with a £60million move to the Premier League.

    Spurs reportedly launched a summer bid worth £60m, but the forward rejected the switch.

    And now Martinez is set to end the transfer speculation and commit his future to Inter by signing a new contract in the coming weeks.

    Marotta told La Gazetta Dello Sport: "We are going to announce his extension within ten days, he is the future of Inter and we want to keep him at the club."

    SAK THAT

    Bukayo Saka has hailed England team-mate Tammy Abraham for adjusting to life in Italy.

    The forward left Chelsea for Roma in the summer, and his form earned him a recall into Gareth Southgate's squad.

    And he got a goal on his return on Saturday, helping England to a 5-0 victory over Andorra.

    Saka said: "I’m really happy for Tammy.

    “He’s my boy. I’m just really happy he got his goal because he’s been working really hard, he’s been in really good form out in Italy so I’m really happy for him.

    “It is football and different challenges will come up and I feel he’s dealt with this one (moving to Roma) well so far, I just wish him the best and I’m happy he got his goal.”
