MARTIN SAMUEL AT STAMFORD BRIDGE: It was an afternoon of red cards, blue on blue attacks, a 96th-minute equaliser, brilliant, high energy football and wonderful, high octane chaos. If Todd Boehly did not previously understand the full, narrative pull of the Premier League, he does now. Manchester United's fall from grace and the spectacular arrival of Erling Haaland are fascinating plotlines, but this was the match that kick-started the season in earnest. Bad behaviour, bad blood, yes, but good football and one of those occasions that demands to be watched. Who could turn away from this? Chelsea, the better side, but Tottenham with new resilience under Antonio Conte.

After so long in the shade, Will Zalatoris finally landed his first PGA Tour title on Sunday night by edging a thrilling and turbulent play-off against Sepp Straka at the FedEx St Jude Championship. It is a sign of Zalatoris's talent and an awkward recognition of his near-misses that at the age of 25 there had been a growing unease about how often he had gone close without taking the last step. But having acquired 16 top-10 finishes in the past two seasons, including six in his eight majors, he got the job done in astonishing circumstances in Memphis, with three extra holes and an almighty amount of luck needed to see off the Austrian.

The world MOCKS Man United's stunning new low: Fans, press and pundits from Australia to Vietnam rip into Erik ten Hag's flops after shambolic Brentford defeat left them BOTTOM of Premier League

Erik ten Hag has only been in the role since June but is already facing huge pressure on his position after he became the first Manchester United boss to lose his first two league games since 1921 - though it's the performances of his players that have been seized upon by the club's critics.

'All that hype and pressure getting to him': Kylian Mbappe 'shocking attitude' stuns fans as he seems to STOP RUNNING when nobody passes to him in PSG's 5-2 win over Montpellier
The French giants have started the campaign brightly under new manager Christophe Galtier by winning both their opening two Ligue 1 matches and scoring an impressive 10 goals. Superstar Mbappe opened his account for the season in the second-half of their latest win, despite looking a frustrated figure for most of the match.The 23-year-old had a penalty saved with the scores level at 0-0 and just before half-time, it seemed as though Mbappe threw a strop when PSG had a glorious chance to go 3-0 ahead. Vitinha brought the ball out from the back and had the option of passing to Mbappe on the left or Lionel Messi on the right. PSG's new midfield signing opted to go out wide to Messi, which saw French international Mbappe throw his hands up in the air and slow down. Achraf Hakimi ended up putting his shot wide, but there was clearly space for a winger to dart into on the opposite flank, where Mbappe could have found himself if he had kept running forward on the counter attack.

Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is somehow undervalued? Seven-time Super Bowl champ Tom Brady could struggle in 2022?... Fantasy Football is back, but it's a strange new world for enthusiasts looking for draft sleepers
The NFL is back, and with it, the 2022 fantasy football season. For all the talk about the demise of the running back, most of whom now share snaps in teams' ongoing efforts to reduce injuries, many top fantasy players can still be found at the position. Even fantasy football novices can find the value in Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, who led the NFL with 92 touches in the red zone in 2021, or Carolina Panthers star Christian McCaffrey, who ranks among the best in the game when healthy. Tom Brady is back after a brief retirement, but that doesn't mean fantasy fans can expect the same production. Meanwhile, Aaron Rogers is somehow undervalued despite winning consecutive MVPs and Deebo Samuel will try to replicate his historic fantasy season of 2021.
