Olivier Giroud magic earns Europa League win for Arsenal over Red Star Belgrade1h 16m Updated Olivier Giroud magic earns Europa League win for Arsenal over Red Star Belgrade
It takes something unusual to create a moment of silence at Red Star Belgrade’s boisterous Marakana. Five minutes from the end of a Europa League encounter that scored higher on atmosphere than intrigue, Arsenal produced the game’s defining moment and for a few seconds the sound cut completely as the home crowd took in the blow. What a blow it was. The move of the night was carved out by Jack Wilshere, who changed gear to burst into dangerous space and exchanged passes with Theo Walcott, who picked out Olivier Giroud. It had been one of those nights where Arsenal’s hulking frontman looked a bit tortured, nothing going for him, touches astray, movement on the leaden side. But in that moment he adjusted his body to send an overhead kick arcing into the net. Giroud’s status as a great goalscorer has been a source of debate over the years but he sure is capable of scoring a great goal. The finish was glossed with spectacular flourish.

Lewis Hamilton may decide against kneeling for the US anthem in Austin but his interest in political issues is a welcome change in the world of F1Lewis Hamilton is the most fascinating character in Formula One and thankfully so. It is a sport whose participants have become so stage-managed as to have hidden their personalities behind a slick corporate veneer. Hamilton has been steadfast in remaining true to himself. At the US Grand Prix this weekend, he may do so again but with potentially huge and also perhaps unexpected repercussions. If the British driver chooses to kneel during the US national anthem on Sunday, it would put him at the heart of one of the most divisive conflicts between politics and sport in recent history.

It is a sport whose participants have become so stage-managed as to have hidden their personalities behind a slick corporate veneer. Hamilton has been steadfast in remaining true to himself. At this weekend’s US Grand Prix, he may do so again but with potentially huge and also perhaps unexpected repercussions. If the British driver chooses to kneel during the US national anthem on Sunday, as he has said he is considering, it will put him at the heart of one of the most divisive conflicts between politics and sport in recent history.

Anyone who does should have been at Stamford Bridge on an evening when the early scent of smoke in the air preceded a firecracker of a match between teams who sit fifth in their respective top flights. Six goals and enough passages of enthralling play to leave everyone in attendance giddy on the spectacle of it all. Or perhaps not, if Antonio Conte’s reaction to the final whistle was anything to go by. While the majority caught their breath, the Italian grimaced, politely shook hands with his counterpart, Eusebio Di Francesco, and headed down the tunnel. The simmering fury was clear, the sense that this match had been something to endure rather than enjoy, obvious to see.

Eden Hazard strikes twice to earn Chelsea draw after Edin Dzeko double for Roma26h Eden Hazard strikes twice to earn Chelsea draw after Edin Dzeko double for Roma
Chelsea halted a losing run here but, even in the knowledge that their leadership of this group is maintained, Antonio Conte will not be hoodwinked by this result. There had been moments when his side gasped at the ferocity of Roma’s muscular approach, and periods when the home team were left flailing desperately in pursuit of the ball. Their head coach will shudder at the memory of another opponent, this time crammed with former Manchester City players rather than Pep Guardiola’s current crop, dominating the play so confidently. Yet there was also character and belief from players who appear increasingly stretched by a remorseless schedule. There were 15 minutes to play when Eden Hazard found space in Roma’s box to guide home Pedro’s centre and ensure the hosts at least salvaged a point. Their earlier two-goal lead had always felt deceptive, and the Italians will be licking their lips at the prospect of confronting Conte’s side at the Stadio Olimpico on 31 October. But, for now, Chelsea have at least stopped the rot.

Celtic are becoming ominously accustomed to Champions League mismatches. The margin of defeat in the Allianz Arena may not have been as harrowing as those delivered by Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain in the last 13 months but the tale of a gulf in class was familiar. Bayern – this recently rejuvenated Bayern – further demonstrated the gulf in chasm between Europe’s elite and the rest; and did so with consummate ease. Nonetheless, it would be remiss to ignore the failure of Celtic to do themselves justice. Whereas Brendan Rodgers had spoken before the game in wholly positive terms, his sentiment was undermined by failings everywhere .
