The Daily Mail says McCabe has been told he will not be welcome at Bramall Lane if he fights the High Court ruling which awards full control of the club to his co-owner Prince Abdullah.

McCabe, who has been on the board for more than 25 years, with many served as chairman, was left devastated by the judgement handed down on Monday.

Others with the Blades close to their hearts were also shaken, including legend Tony Currie, who was in tears as he confirmed he would step down from the board with immediate effect and voiced his fears about the new leadership.

"It is a sad day," said Currie. "Over the past 25 years Kevin McCabe has transformed the club. We are in the Premier League with a brilliant manager and an academy that is producing players for England and one of the best stadiums in the country.

"All of that is down to Kevin. I'm sad for him and sad for myself and I'm sad for the Sheffield United supporters."

Coleman has warned Everton must get back to winning ways against Sheffield United this weekend.

The Blues return to Goodison Park following defeat on the south coast to Bournemouth.

Coleman told evertontv: We have to make sure we retain our confidence from our home form and try to make amends [following Bournemouth] against Sheffield United and go on from there.

When you put on the Everton shirt whether you are old or young you have to take responsibility, to be brave and look for the ball at all times and help your teammates.

Not many of us could hold our heads high coming off the pitch [on Sunday] and that's the truth.

Our home form is good but away from home at the minute it is disappointing and something we need to put right very fast if we want to be better this season.

We have to go into the Sheffield United game and hopefully get three points and move forward and try to put it right."

Norwich City's 3-2 win against the champions Manchester City was extraordinary and richly deserved; Daniel Farke's side were outstanding on and off the ball.

Elsewhere Tottenham rediscovered their verve on home turf, Watford took advantage of another confusing tactical setup from Arsenal, and Chelsea hit five in a new 3-4-2-1 formation. Here are three tactical things we learnt from the weekend action:



1) Norwich's perfect tactics assisted by Guardiola's focus on width

Farke's team were outstanding on Saturday, improving dramatically on previous Premier League outings by sitting deep and in a narrow 4-2-3-1. They have clearly learnt from their earlier openness, showing defensive resilience and discipline here in a midfield W-shape that meant the wingers cut off passing lines to David Silva and Ilkay Gundogan and their number ten Marco Stiepermann could mark Rodri.

Norwich left Man City's back four alone, refusing to press, which meant mostly aimless possession for Pep Guardiola's side; it was unexpectedly patient, for which Farke and his side deserve a lot of credit. On the ball, their calm short-passing out from the back successfully evaded the visitors' press and forced Man City to drop a bit deeper. They are not used to doing this, which explains their passive resistance in their own half for the first two Norwich goals.

The hosts were assisted by Guardiola's tactical mistakes. Leaving Kevin de Bruyne on the bench, they struggled to build from deep (Rodri and Gundogan were completely disconnected and David Silva sat too high up the pitch), while their best players Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva were harmlessly hugging the touchline. Man City were most dangerous on the rare occasions Sterling picked up the ball in the central column and yet Guardiola's double substitution on the hour mark doubled down on width.

He told De Bruyne to move to the right wing and constantly swing crosses towards Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero. Despite Norwich's aerial superiority and high number of bodies behind the ball Man City attempted 47 crosses double their season average.



2) Deulofeu & Doucoure shine as Flores exposes Arsenal's narrowness

Gerard Deulofeu had an incredible 93 touches of the ball in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal, putting in his best performance of the season largely thanks to the visitors' use of a narrow diamond 4-4-2 formation. It was the second time this season Unai Emery has deployed the formation and the second time his midfielders had no idea what to do, leaving astonishingly large patches of grass out wide.

Considering Ainsley Maitland-Niles needs more help than most, it was a suicidal tactic; Deulofeu had the beating of him all match, and Watford were able to consistently feed the Spaniard because Abdoulaye Doucoure controlled central midfield. Mesut Ozil didn't press from the tip of the diamond, plus Dani Ceballos was unable to defend successfully and Granit Xhaka constantly drifted away from his base position.

Quique Sanchez Flores deserves praise for his in-game tactical decisions as the pattern unfolded. He brought Daryl Janmaat off the bench to make overlapping runs down the right, helping to earn the penalty for Watford's equaliser and set up a final 10 minutes in which Watford pummeled the visitors down that flank.



3) Aurier & Alderweireld breathe new life into Spurs

Tottenham's poor home form against deep-lying opposition has been a serious cause for concern over the last few weeks; the 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle United follows an inability to break down the likes of Brighton, Crystal Palace, and West Ham towards the end of last season. But Mauricio Pochettino's side emphatically ended these stagnant attacking performances on Saturday with Serge Aurier and Toby Alderweireld shining.

Aurier's directness from right-back and excellent fizzing crosses earning two assists were a reminder that Spurs need energetic full-backs for their tactics to work. Pochettino's emphasis on narrow attacking lines has always demanded a player like Kyle Walker to provide the width, and so Aurier's performance this weekend was timely. He must feature more regularly this season, especially against bottom-half clubs.

Alderweireld played 15 long passes, his first few of the afternoon pinpoint balls over the top for Son Heung-Min to force the Crystal Palace defence to backpedal and fall out of their shell. This assertiveness and verticality from the outset gave Spurs an urgency they have so often lacked in these sort of fixtures, inspiring the crowd to lift the mood inside Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Spurs have finally woken up.



Best of the Week - Chelsea's 3-4-2-1 shows promise for the future

Frank Lampard used a Conte-esque 3-4-2-1 formation on Saturday in order to counteract Wolves' 3-5-2, a formation that provides a numerical advantage in defence, midfield, and attack against a 4-3-3. However, following an assured performance Lampard may decide to stick with this system for the time being.

Having a third centre-back eliminated some of their defensive concerns; Fikayo Timori could step out to meet countering Wolves midfielders, helping close the gaps in midfield that have plagued Chelsea this season (they seem incapable of transitioning from attack to defence). Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso (or Emerson) are vulnerable defensively, too, meaning they clearly benefit from the extra defensive cover in a 3-4-2-1.

Further up the pitch Mason Mount and Willian combined well in the inside forward positions to provide Tammy Abraham with close support, while N'Golo Kante when he returns from injury will prefer playing in a two-man central midfield.



Worst of the Week - Leicester aren't tactically brave enough to trouble Man Utd

Leicester City were punished on Saturday for failing to pick their most attacking line-up as Brendan Rodgers continued his use of two defensive midfielders in tough away games. Manchester United were there for the taking, but Leicester could not build momentum. Hamza Choudhury isn't assertive in possession and James Maddison, drifting in from the left flank, had no left-wing option to pass to only an under-performing Youri Tielemans.

The lack of options was disappointing to say the least. United were able to float pretty aimlessly through a match that never really got going, winning via a penalty conceded by Caglar Soyuncu - who is struggling to adapt to English football. Leicester missed the chance to lay down a marker at Old Trafford. If they want to finish top four then Rodgers needs to approach matches with the mentality of a top-four team by trusting his attacking players.

Djenepo, who also joined in the summer, bagged his second goal of the campaign to give Saints a win over Sheffield United.

Having already produced two match-winning strikes, Adams is backing the 14m winger to be a success on the south coast.

Adams explained: He does it in training all the time. We know what he can bring and that's why the manager brought him into a more attacking role.

From when he stepped in the door, you could see he has the ability and that's why the club signed him.

It's important if you're an attacking player, you need to be able to cause opposing teams problems and he's shown that.

I think he will be a massive player for us, he's an attacking threat, and that's what we need. He will help us in the league."

McCabe has been ordered to sell his shareholding in the Premier League club's parent company to the Saudi royal.

In a statement, issued by public relations firm Tavistock Communications, a spokesperson said: "It will not surprise readers of the judgment to learn that the McCabes do not agree with every aspect of the judge's decision.

"However they are nevertheless grateful to the judge for the time and care he has taken over the judgment and they wish to make clear that in disagreeing with some of the conclusions they mean no disrespect to the judge.

"Serious consideration is now being given, with the advisors to Sheffield United Limited, to an appeal against the judgment."

The Sunday People says the likes of Sheffield United, Everton, Bournemouth and Southampton are believed to be keeping tabs on the youngster.

United showed through their summer recruitment that they're eager to hand youthful players, and indeed those from lower leagues, an opportunity to develop at Bramall Lane, and the Steelmen's star fits the bill in that respect.

Scott's team mate, David Turnbull, who was tipped to be a summer target of Sheffield Wednesday, is also still in high demand, after his proposed move to Celtic collapsed after he suffered a serious knee injury back in June.

The Spaniard has committed to a long term deal that could see him stay at the club until 2023.

It would see De Gea complete more than 10 years at United, a club he was always expected to leave in his prime.

But the Daily Express believes that De Gea renewing means that Dean Henderson and Sergio Romero may see their futures elsewhere.

Romero is currently De Gea's backup, while Henderson is on loan at Sheffield United.

The latter is certain to want a chance to start at United, or he may see his career best served at another club.

It means McCabe's association with his boyhood club is over and it also ends a bitter feud between the two co-owners that began in 2017.

The Sun says both men took 50-50 ownership in 2013 when the club were in League One.

McCabe sold a 50 per cent stake of the Yorkshire side for just 1 on the basis that the Saudi prince would provide significant investment in the squad in a bid to get them back to the promised land.

But their partnership reached boiling point two years ago when both men launched bids to gain full control of the club.

An agreement couldn't be reached and it has led to a two-year court battle which eventually reached its conclusion today.

The Blades trailing to a Moussa Djenepo wonder strike felt they should have had a spot-kick in the 75th minute when James Ward-Prowse appeared to handle a cross with an outstretched arm in the area.

Referee Lee Mason checked with Stockley Park but instead gave a corner to the home side. And Wilder became the latest manager to feel wronged.

"It's a penalty," he said.

"If you look, there's two or three of our boys waiting to tap it in. I don't think they can get it wrong. The hand was out there."

Last week referees' chief Mike Riley told a Premier League meeting that the replay system, introduced this season, had already made four incorrect decisions.

"Maybe in four weeks' time someone will come out and say it's a mistake," Wilder said. "You expect with all the talk and the debate it's a pretty easy one to pick up. I don't know why they had that meeting then, eh?"

Saints summer signing Moussa Djenepo scored the deciding goal as he brilliantly weaved through the Blades defence before firing home midway through the second half.

But prior to falling behind, the hosts saw a goal ruled out for offside by the video assistant referee when Oliver McBurnie thought he had put them in front shortly after the break.

Wilder said: "I was unhappy with the first half performance because it wasn't us, was not us but that is our performance today.

"It's risk and reward, the goal we conceded is nothing to do with shape or tactics, it is a ball given away in the middle of the park.

"We are an open side, that's why we created 17 chances and should have scored, no doubt about it."
