Solutions

1:C - Solskjær was on the wrong side of a 6-3 defeat against Liverpool in 2014 when he was in charge of Cardiff City. Solskjær’s team took the lead twice in the game but Liverpool fought back to win thanks to a hat-trick from Suárez, a brace from Martin Skrtel and a goal from Daniel Sturridge., 2:A - Liverpool have scored a record 160 penalties since the Premier League began in 1992., 3:A - United's women’s team are doing every bit as well as the men’s side. They are still unbeaten in the Women’s Super League this season., 4:C - Murray was a beaten finalist in Melbourne in 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016., 5:B - Two appearances in the League Cup and one in the Premier League. Funnily enough, his record in a Chelsea shirt is exceptional. Piazon played in a 6-0 win against Wolves, a game in which Chelsea knocked Manchester United out of the League Cup, and an 8-0 hammering of Aston Villa., 6:B - Fulham have drawn their last five matches: 1-1, 1-1, 0-0, 0-0 and 1-1. Despite going unbeaten for so long, they are still in the relegation zone., 7:D - Eberechi Eze, who now plays for Crystal Palace, was pictured at his former club's match with no mask on and without observing social distancing rules., 8:B - Bahrain will host the first race of the Formula One season this year., 9:B - Bolton had a very strange season in 1902-03. After going without a win for 22 games, they won eight of their next 11 games (although they still finished bottom of the table)., 10:D - England manager Shaun Wane says he wants to bring various English athletes into the set-up to help his team at their home World Cup. Speaking of Terry, he said: “I’ve been having lots of Zoom calls with people like John. He’s going to come up to training at some point. He’s really keen, he’s really smart and he loves our way of thinking in rugby league. He’s got a real understanding about rugby league and he loves the game. I ask him regular questions and vice versa. We learn from each other. He’s a very proud Englishman, as is Lee.”
