As cinemas start to, slowly but surely, open their doors again, Netflix is continuing to keep us all sane with the release of Millie Bobby Brown’s Enola Holmes – which has been gaining more and more buzz over the past few months. Honestly, you can’t swing a cane without seeing a poster, trailer or teaser for the thing.

Staff at Confucius Institutes in the UK are having their political views and ethnic backgrounds filtered by Chinese officials, according to researchers. The 30 Chinese institutes across the country were set up to deliver culture and language classes to international students.

Goals tend to come with the territory when Liverpool rock up for an afternoon of Premier League action. Jurgen Klopp is often smiling and who could blame him? He spends so much time celebrating Liverpool goals thanks to the likes of Mohamed Salah , Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, and, of course, club record £85million man Darwin Nunez. But Salah has not always been there to charge relentlessly beyond the defence, nor has Nunez been the man hurling his entire body onto the end of in-swinging crosses like a missile. And while Liverpool supporters may cower at the sight of some of their previous strikers, Daily Star Sport considers eight of Liverpool's worst strikers over the years.
