Salah, Ronaldo or Modric? Fifa to announce award winners on Monday

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah

The world’s best male and female footballers will be named at the Best Fifa Football Awards in London on Monday.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah are the finalists for the men’s player award for 2018 – with no place for Lionel Messi.

Ada Hegerberg, Dzsenifer Marozsan and Marta are the nominees for the women’s player award.

Gareth Bale is one of 10 candidates for the Fifa Puskas goal of the year.

The other awards are for the Best Fifa goalkeeper, men’s coach, women’s coach, fan award, fair play award and Fifpro World XI.

British actor Idris Elba and French journalist Anne-Laure Bonnet host the show at the Royal Festival Hall, which starts at 18:30 BST.

This is the third year of the Best Fifa awards after the world governing body’s six-year association with the Ballon d’Or came to an end.

Men’s player

This is the first year since 2006 that Lionel Messi has not been in the final three of Fifa’s top award – then called the Fifa World Player of the Year. It will also be the first time since 2010 that Ronaldo and Messi have not been the top two in either order.

The final three was named on 3 September – with the winners of the men’s and women’s player and coach awards being decided by 25% from national team coaches, 25% from national team captains, 25% from select media representatives and 25% online vote.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid, now Juventus and Portugal)

Media playback is not supported on this device

The 33-year-old – who has won both Best Fifa awards so far – is nominated after a season in which he won his fifth Champions League title. He scored 15 goals to ensure he would be top scorer in the competition for a sixth consecutive season – including a shared one in 2014-15.

He scored 44 goals in as many games in all competitions for Real Madrid – including 18 in his final 10 La Liga games. Ronaldo then scored four times at the World Cup for Portugal to make him the second top scorer in international football history.

A £99.2m move to Juventus followed this summer, where he will bid to win the Champions League with a third different side.

Luka Modric (Real Madrid and Croatia)

Media playback is not supported on this device

Modric, who is 33 like his former team-mate, enjoyed arguably the best year of his career as he too won a third consecutive Champions League trophy – before reaching the World Cup final with Croatia.

In the summer his international team-mate Dejan Lovren said: “Modric would probably be getting more attention if he was German or Spanish. He would maybe even be a Ballon d’Or winner.”

The former Tottenham midfielder won the Golden Ball award for the best player in the World Cup after their final defeat by France. He scored in their opening two matches and also set up one goal.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool and Egypt)

Media playback is not supported on this device

The 26-year-old had the season of his career to take Liverpool to the Champions League final and Egypt to the World Cup – although he ended up without a trophy.

Following a £34m move from Roma in June 2017, he scored 44 goals in 52 games for Liverpool, winning the Premier League Golden Boot on his return to English football after a disappointing spell at Chelsea earlier in his career.

A shoulder injury suffered in the Champions League final meant he was not fully fit in Egypt’s first World Cup since 1990 – but he did still manage two goals in as many games.

Women’s player

Last year’s winner, Lieke Martens of Barcelona and the Netherlands, did not make the final 10 this time. England’s Lucy Bronze made that list but was cut from the final three.

Ada Hegerberg of Norway (left), Germany's Dzsenifer Marozsan (centre) and Brazil forward Marta (right) are the finalists for Best Fifa Women's Player<!–

Ada Hegerberg (Lyon)

The 23-year-old, who is currently on an international break from Norway, scored 53 goals in 32 games last season as Lyon won the Ligue 1 and Champions League double for a third consecutive season.

She scored 15 goals in the Champions League – a record for a single season – and 31 goals in 20 league appearances.

Hegerberg, the 2017 BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year, has three years left on her Lyon deal – a contract length rarely seen in women’s football.

Dzsenifer Marozsan (Lyon and Germany)

The 26-year-old Germany captain also won the Ligue 1 and Champions League double with Lyon last season.

The midfielder led her country to five wins out of six in Women’s World Cup qualifying and was named in the Women’s Champions League squad of the tournament.

In July it was announced she had a pulmonary embolism, which occurs when a blood vessel in the lungs is blocked.

Marta (Orlando Pride and Brazil)

The 32-year-old has made the final three for Fifa’s top award for the 13th time in her career and is looking to win for the sixth time.

She led Brazil to the Copa America in April, as they won all seven matches – although she only scored one of their 31 goals.

Marta scored 13 goals and set up six more as Orlando Pride reached the NWSL play-off semi-finals in the United States – earning herself a place in the league’s team of the year.

Who is Best Fifa Women’s player?

Rank the nominees for the Best Fifa Women’s Player award from first to third

Men’s coach

The three nominated coaches are French duo Zinedine Zidane, Didier Deschamps and Croat Zlatko Dalic.

Zidane left Real Madrid after guiding them to a third consecutive Champions League and Deschamps led France to World Cup glory, beating Dalic’s Croatia in the final.

The 2017 award was won by Zidane, with Claudio Ranieri winning in 2016 after taking Leicester to the Premier League title.

Women’s coach

The nominated trio are Reynald Pedros, Asako Takakura and Sarina Wiegman.

Former France men’s midfielder Pedros took Lyon to the Ligue 1-Champions League double in his first season in charge, Takakura led Japan to the Asian Cup title and Wiegman took the Netherlands to the World Cup qualifying play-offs.

Wiegman secured the award last year after the Netherlands won Euro 2017.

Fifa Puskas goal of the year

Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the 10 candidates for goal of the year for their Champions League bicycle kicks for Real Madrid last season. Four nominees were World Cup strikes – Lionel Messi, Benjamin Pavard, Ricardo Quaresma and Denis Cheryshev.

Mohamed Salah’s Premier League goal for Liverpool against Everton in a 1-1 draw in December is shortlisted. Also included are Riley McGree for Australian side Newcastle Jets, Giorgian de Arrascaeta for Cruzeiro of Brazil and Lazaros Christodoulopoulos for AEK Athens against Olympiakos, whom he has since joined.

Goalkeeper

The three nominees for goalkeeper of the year were all in the Premier League last year.

Belgian Thibaut Courtois joined Real Madrid from Chelsea, Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris helped France to win the World Cup and Leicester and Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel is a slightly surprising candidate.

Gianluigi Buffon – then of Juventus and Italy – won the inaugural award last season.

Fifpro World XI

Lacazette & Aubameyang earn Arsenal win over Everton

Alexandre Lacazette scores Arsenal's first goal

Two goals in three second-half minutes gave Arsenal victory over Everton and took them up to sixth in the Premier League table.

Following a tight first half, in which Dominic Calvert-Lewin squandered a fine second-minute opening for Everton, the Gunners asserted control after the break.

Alexandre Lacazette swept a curling shot into the top corner from the edge of the area after Aaron Ramsey’s pass.

Shortly after, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang poked in from close range after Mesut Ozil broke down the right, cut the ball back and Ramsey nudged it into the path of the Gabon international.

Replays suggested that Aubameyang was offside from Ramsey’s touch, though Everton could have few complaints from that point as a third for the hosts was more likely than a comeback from Marco Silva’s side.

More to follow.

Rangers thump St Johnstone to go second

James Tavernier scores a free-kick

Dominant Rangers strolled to victory over St Johnstone to move up to second in the Scottish Premiership.

With league leaders Hearts and Celtic dropping points, Steven Gerrard’s side moved above their rivals and narrowed the gap on top spot to five points.

Goals from James Tavernier, Alfredo Morelos, Scott Arfield and Kyle Lafferty gave the hosts a 4-0 lead.

A Blair Alston penalty pulled one back for St Johnstone, but Daniel Candeias soon made it five.

St Johnstone were left to rue a David Wotherspoon miss from close range with the scores still at 0-0, while Tony Watt and Wotherspoon again passed up a golden chances in the second half.

However, they were very much second best at Ibrox. Tommy Wright’s men welcome Celtic to Perth in Wednesday’s League Cup quarter-final.

Chelsea drop first points of season in draw at West Ham

Eden Hazard

Chelsea dropped their first Premier League points after a frustrating London derby at West Ham.

The visitors enjoyed 71% of possession at London Stadium, but failed to score for the first time this season.

Despite seeing little of the ball, West Ham had the best chance to win it as Robert Snodgrass picked out the unmarked Andriy Yarmolenko on 78 minutes, but the Ukrainian sent his header wide.

Second-half substitute Alvaro Morata almost made an instant impact for Chelsea, but he was unable to steer the ball past Lukasz Fabianski from close range, as Chelsea missed their chance to keep pace with league leaders Liverpool.

Maurizio Sarri’s men remain third after Manchester City won on Saturday, while Manuel Pellegrini’s side stay in 17th.

Celtic beaten by injury-time Kilmarnock strike

Stuart Findlay celebrates scoring

Stuart Findlay’s stoppage-time header earned Kilmarnock a dramatic comeback win over Premiership champions Celtic.

Leigh Griffiths pounced on a miscued Greg Taylor clearance that struck the bar to give Brendan Rodgers’ side the lead at half-time.

But Chris Burke levelled with a brilliant long-range howitzer.

And as an abrasive contest looked set to finish all-square, Findlay rose to meet Burke’s corner, planting his header into the bottom corner.

The defeat leaves Rodgers’ team with only 10 points from their opening six games, and fifth in the table, six points adrift of league leaders Hearts.

Killie climb above Celtic into fourth, courtesy of their superior goal difference.

Killie triumph in war of attrition

This game was a battle laced with so many compelling storylines.

Against a backdrop of refereeing controversy and vehement complaints from Killie manager Steve Clarke, Dedryck Boyata brought the speeding Jordan Jones to ground as he raced towards the Celtic box.

The Belgian escaped with a booking, perhaps saved by the presence of the back-tracking Kieran Tierney, but the early tumult set the tone for an incident-laden contest.

At 34, Kirk Broadfoot is a vastly experienced defender, yet he looked like an ungainly rookie when defending set-pieces. Slow and cumbersome, he could have conceded a penalty after grappling with Boyata, then let the Celtic centre-back have a free run and header at a corner and was bailed out by a terrific Jamie MacDonald save.

There was Youssouf Mulumbu, making his Celtic debut against the team he helped propel to fifth place last season, rugby-tackling Aaron Tshibola after a naughty challenge. And there was the deadly Griffiths, his speed and litheness in leaping to nod home Taylor’s horrible miss-kick again underlining his credentials to lead Celtic’s line.

This was Killie’s day, though. The longer the impotent champions laboured in their pursuit of a second goal, then a winner, the more belief grew in home ranks. Steve Clarke’s men coped ably with the power-game of Mulumbu and Scott Brown in midfield and flew forward when they could.

Burke was allowed to trot towards the edge of the box before unleashing a vicious low drive to equalise. And in the dying embers, Findlay darted towards the front post and flashed the winning header back across the face of goal. An exhilarating finish to an engrossing contest.

Chris Burke scores for Kilmarnock<!–<!–[if lte IE 8]><![endif]–>

Celtic falter again – analysis

There’s something missing at Celtic. The champions’ swagger is gone. The intensity and verve that characterised Rodgers’ first two years at the helm has dissipated.

Ten points from a possible 18, draws at Kilmarnock and St Mirren and a defeat at Tynecastle are not good enough. Nor is a record of one win in five away matches.

They have only scored six goals in six Premiership games, created only a handful of chances at Rugby Park, and only in their rousing Old Firm derby triumph have they looked near their best.

Celtic will almost certainly rumble their way to an eighth successive title. They might even win another treble. But at the moment, they look worryingly listless, flat, and light years from their top form.

Managerless Liverpool Women win as Brighton remain without a WSL point

Brighton manager Hope Powell

Substitute Rinsola Babajide scored managerless Liverpool’s winner to keep Brighton still awaiting their first Women’s Super League point.

With just five minutes left, Babajide’s 20-yard shot crept in for the Reds, who were playing their first WSL match since Neil Redfearn’s resignation.

Kayleigh Green headed just over as Brighton failed to find an equaliser.

Hope Powell’s side have lost all three games 1-0 in their first season since being accepted into the top tier.

'Incredibly talented' Mahrez helps Man City thrash Cardiff

Sergio Aguero marked his 300th appearance for Manchester City with a goal

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola described Riyad Mahrez as an “incredibly talented” player after he scored his first goals for the club to help them thrash Cardiff City.

Mahrez, who signed for £60m in the summer, tapped in his first goal – and Manchester City’s fourth – after a patient, incisive team move, before whipping in his second late on.

“It’s good to get the first goals,” Guardiola said. “Of course it’s important for him. He came here, he’s an incredibly talented player. He deserves to play more minutes, like Phil Foden.”

The 18-year-old Englishman played for around 25 minutes as a substitute. “It’s a pleasure to watch Phil play football and of course Riyad as well,” Guardiola continued. “But the season is too long and they have to be ready, prepared, because they are going to play a lot of minutes.”

The stylish visitors were already out of sight by half-time, leading 3-0 thanks to Sergio Aguero’s sweeping finish, a clever looping header from Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan’s delightful curling effort.

Cardiff simply could not live with an irresistible City side and, as they are still searching for their first win this season, the Bluebirds now find themselves second from bottom of the table.

Superb City bounce back

Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva both got on the scoresheet<!–

For Manchester City, this was an instant and convincing riposte following Wednesday’s shock defeat at home to Lyon in the Champions League.

That loss was made to look like an aberration by this performance, even if it was against a newly promoted Cardiff side who look ill equipped to cope with the Premier League’s leading teams.

City asserted their dominance from the first minute and, once Aguero had opened the scoring in his 300th appearance for the club after half an hour, this match became a procession.

Guardiola’s players passed and moved with grace and speed, leaving their opponents bewildered.

Cardiff, a physically imposing side, will have been disappointed to allow one of the shortest players on the pitch, Bernardo Silva, to score the second with his head – but it was still a goal to marvel at, as the Portuguese arced his neck to generate the dip required to loop the ball backwards over goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

There was even more to admire in the third goal, as Gundogan neatly exchanged passes with Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling before stroking the ball into the top corner.

Gundogan then turned provider for the fourth – and arguably the best – goal of the afternoon, with a sustained period of City possession freeing the Germany midfielder to square the ball for Mahrez to convert from close range.

The win has moved Manchester City up to second in the Premier League table.

Cardiff outclassed again

Tempers had flared when these two sides met here in the FA Cup in January, when Cardiff’s Joe Bennett was sent off.

City thoroughly outclassed their opponents – then in the Championship – to win 2-0 on that occasion, and the gulf in quality appeared even greater this time.

Cardiff initially battled as enthusiastically as one would expect from a team managed by Neil Warnock. But as soon as they conceded the opening goal, a thrashing seemed inevitable.

While the Bluebirds may not have expected much from a fixture against the reigning champions, it will concern Warnock that his side have now conceded 12 goals in their past three games.

After matches against City, Chelsea and Arsenal, Cardiff will be relieved to welcome Burnley to south Wales next weekend.

Man of the match – Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City)

There were several City players who impressed but perhaps none more than Germany midfielder Ilkay Gundogan (left), who was intricate with his passing and lively with his movement, capping his display with an excellent goal.<!–

A ‘long afternoon’ – what they said

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock: “It was a long afternoon. I thought we started well. The first 30 minutes, we had shape and knew what we were doing but the goals killed us. I’ve not seen our heads go down like that.

“The first goal came from a corner which shouldn’t happen, but the top teams – that’s what they do. They find a weakness and one lapse and Aguero is in. The second goal I thought was a fluke. It came almost straight away and knocked the stuffing out of us really.

“It’s a disappointment. Like I said before, it’s not going to define our season but it will knock our chin on the floor a bit. The lads have got to get over the weekend and get on with next week.”

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola [On his return from a touchline ban]: “I don’t play. The managers, we are there to be there when they have little doubts, to support them.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen with that guys. It’s the same group, they keep reacting, an exceptional group. They know how, when the situation is not good in terms of results, the closer I am to them.

“They deserve all my respect. They made me happy the last, more than one year, two seasons, and that’s why – always I will be with them.”

City show their dominance – the stats

  • Cardiff lost a home league game by a five-goal margin for the first time since April 1994 (2-7 v Cambridge in the third tier).
  • Since Pep Guardiola took over before the 2016-17 season, Manchester City have scored 5+ goals in 10 Premier League fixtures.
  • Sergio Aguero made his 300th appearance for Manchester City in all competitions, and scored his 205th goal for the club.
  • Manchester City striker Aguero has now scored 13 and assisted two more in his last 13 Premier League games against newly promoted sides.
  • Bernardo Silva scored and assisted in the same game for the first time ever for Manchester City in his 61 appearances for the club in all competitions.
  • Silva’s goal for Manchester City was his first headed goal for the club in any competition.
  • Since the start of last season, Raheem Sterling has registered 12 Premier League assists, more than any other English player, and a tally only Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane can better overall (16 each).
  • Riyad Mahrez scored his first goals for Manchester City and his first double in the Premier League since netting twice for Leicester against Everton in December 2015.

Superb Moutinho goal earns Wolves point at Man Utd

Moutinho

Joao Moutinho’s superb strike earned Wolves a draw at Manchester United as the newly promoted visitors continued their strong start to life in the Premier League.

The Portugal midfielder whipped in from the edge of the area as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side matched that of his former manager Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Wolves were lively in the first half and unlucky to go behind as Fred netted his first goal for United – the Brazilian firing in from just inside the box after Paul Pogba’s excellent touch.

United, with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson watching on during his first visit to Old Trafford since having emergency brain surgery in May, were looking for a third straight league win.

The hosts were on top after the break, but Raul Jimenez’s clever lay-off set up Moutinho for what was a deserved equaliser for the visitors.

The draw keeps Wolves one point behind Manchester United in 10th, as Mourinho’s side climb to fifth.

More to follow.
