EPL Table: Premier League standings after 27 matches

Tom Doyle

Manchester United passed up the chance to leapfrog Arsenal and Liverpool in the race for the Premier League top four as they drew 1-1 at home with Bournemouth.

Marcos Rojo gave United an early lead at Old Trafford, but United academy graduate Josh King equalised from the penalty spot.

Controversy reigned as Tyrone Mings and Zlatan Ibrahimovic both avoided red cards just before the interval - the former for a stamp on the striker; the latter for elbowing the defender in retaliation - as Bournemouth midfielder Andrew Surman then received a second bookable offence for pushing over Ibrahimovic.

The Swedish striker was lucky to be on the pitch, but then missed a second-half penalty as Jose Mourinho's side failed to break down Eddie Howe's Cherries.

    Ronald Koeman spent big on his squad this summer to raise expectations, but the Toffees sit 16th in the table heading into the weekend's action and without a win in four games - losing a bad-tempered Europa League home clash to Lyon on Thursday. The Everton manager arguably needs a result against Arsenal to avoid being sacked, while Arsene Wenger is also under pressure to deliver at Goodison.

    World Health Organisation rescinds Robert Mugabe ambassador appointment after outcry

    The World Health Organisation has reversed its decision to make Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe a goodwill ambassador. The appointment was described as "laughable" and an "insult" as critics claimed Mr Mugabe's policies and alleged human rights abuses have run Zimbabwe's health system into the ground. WHO director-general Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he had "listened carefully" to the criticism, consulted with the Zimbabwean government and concluded that Mr Mugabe's removal "is in the best interests" of WHO.

The remote town of Oranjemund, which lies in a diamond-mining area called the Sperrgebiet, or "prohibited area" in German, held celebrations this month to declare an end to its isolation from the rest of the country. The Namibia Press Agency said a new road has opened between the Namibian town of Rosh Pinah and Oranjemund, ending a decades-long system whereby travelers had to get security clearance before entering the Sperrgebiet.

    Paloma Faith says she's raising her child as gender neutral

    Paloma Faith has stated she'll be raising her child as gender neutral. Speaking to the Mirror at the Q Awards, she explained her approach to gender neutral parenting involves, for example, not dressing her child in stereotypical "boy/girl" colours such as pink and blue, to avoid implicit pressure on the child's own gender identification. Faith announced the birth on Instagram, in which she wrote a passionate thank you to the NHS following a "difficult labour" that resulted in an "emergency caesarian".
