Pranksters have edited Google Maps to ensure the location of Anfield comes up when 'gobs***es' it type into its search engine. No Everton fan has come forward to take responsibility for the edit but the blue half of Liverpool will no doubt be revelling in the news. Liverpool are derogatorily referred to as 'gobs***es' by fans of their Merseyside rivals. Google Maps, created in 2005, uses a crowdsourcing feature to improve its accuracy and the edit seems to have been made using it.
Wayne Rooney was painting benches in Macclesfield as part of his community service on Thursday morning - just 12 hours after playing 81 minutes in Everton's 2-1 defeat by Chelsea in London. It has been a topsy-turvy week for Rooney, who could not celebrate his 32nd birthday on Tuesday as he had to travel to London with the Everton squad for the Carabao Cup match, boarding a train at 3.05pm at Runcorn and only arriving back home in the early hours of Thursday morning.
A police probe has been launched after Tottenham fan filmed himself urinating into a cup and hurling towards West Ham supporters inside Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
