There is interest in the striker from his homeland France in a loan deal until the end of the season, but a recent upturn in form may see him stay at Selhurst Park. Mateta has two goals in his last four games across all competitions and was turned to by manager Patrick Vieira ahead of Burnley target Christian Benteke during the 1-1 draw with Brighton, playing a role in Conor Gallagher's fine goal.
Chelsea’s title race is run. In truth it did not take a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City to confirm that – but after witnessing this one-sided contest at the Etihad, it begs the question of whether they were ever realistic challengers to Pep Guardiola’s Premier League dominance. It took a moment of brilliance from Kevin de Bruyne to separate the sides on the day, but that does not tell the whole story.
Kyrgios was a doubt for the tournament, but eased into round two.
Arsenal’s statement confirming the postponement of yesterday's north London derby described the club as "disappointed" to relay the news to fans. Given they requested the delay and lobbied the Premier League to make it happen, "relieved" or "delighted" might have been more believable emotions to express at a decision which has provoked widespread consternation.

Philippe Coutinho came off the bench to inspire Aston Villa to a thrilling comeback as they earned a 2-2 draw against Man United at Villa Park. Bruno Fernandes scored in both halves as United went two goals up and looked to be on course for a comfortable win and one of their best performances under Ralf Rangnick.
