Red car-d! UAE football match halted after driver invades pitch

LONDON: A UAE football game came to an abrupt halt this week thanks to a pitch invasion — by someone in a car.
The under-18s UAE league match between Al-Jazeera and Shabab Al-Ahly was suspended after the driver invaded the pitch for approximately 16 seconds, circling the players before speeding off.
The scene was captured by Sharjah Sports TV and widely shared on social media.
Some social media users who tweeted the video found it funny whilst others deemed the fan’s behaviour as reckless and dangerous. They include Twitter user @YalaGoal1 who commented that the fan’s actions could have “led to a disaster” at the match.
Mukalla9962 wrote on Sharjah Sports TV’s Instagram page that “We are in the UAE, a state where there is order and laws. This person should be prosecuted so that this doesn’t happen again.”

Chelsea moves into top 4 after draw with Burnley

  • Chelsea moves into the final Champions League qualifying spot

LONDON: Chelsea moved into the Premier League’s top four on Monday with a frustrating 2-2 draw with Burnley.
Goals two minutes apart from N’Golo Kante and Gonzalo Higuain put Chelsea on top at Stamford Bridge after Jeff Hendrick had given Burnley an early lead.
But Ashley Barnes pulled the visitors even in the 24th minute and Chelsea was unable to get the winner despite dominating possession and finishing with 22 shots.
Chelsea moves into the final Champions League qualifying spot, one point above Arsenal and three ahead of Manchester United, but has played one game more.
Burnley, meanwhile, all but guaranteed its Premier League status for another season.
The Clarets are nine points above Cardiff in the final relegation place with three games left and have a far superior goal difference.
