Sterling praised for standing up against racism

Metropolitan Police have confirmed they are reviewing footage that allegedly shows a Chelsea fan directing racist abuse at Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling during Saturday's Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.

It was the Frenchman's first goal since the first game of the season and Chelsea's first shot on target.

The star Manchester City winger said: 'Regarding what was said at the Chelsea game as you can see by my reaction I just had to laugh because I don't expect no better'.

Chelsea are fourth in the Premier League after their win, eight points behind leaders Liverpool who took over top spot in the table thanks for City's loss and their own 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Posting a screenshot of two news articles from the same newspaper, Sterling highlighted the different coverage given to two of his young Manchester City team mates when they bought houses.

"Aquaman" Sequel Already In Discussion At Warner Bros
Warner Brothers employed a novel strategy in attempting to buck that trend with Aquaman , and it appears to be paying off. It seems like a lot will ultimately hinge on how this is received and how well it performs at the box office.

"I am happy when I can be on the scoresheet and to have scored my second goal of the season". Sarri told BT Sport.

"We are happy with the win. We played with Hazard as a striker, so if we have to change something there was Giroud", Sarri said.

"It is hard to play in the defensive line when it is not working".

"It is hard for us to find motivation but when we are, we are a very strong team". It was a dominant display by the Blues, but it doesn't quite make them title contenders yet. "It was working well today so it is easier for the centre-backs to play a good match".

Sarri added: "We played very well in the last few minutes of the first half, and the first 20 minutes of the second, and in the end we deserved to win".
