Eight of the last 11 Upton Park meetings between West Ham and Aston Villa have ended in draws and Simon Hopper thinks we could be in for another this season – see his preview and all the best odds here.

Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie has been formally charged with tax evasion.

Storrie has been accused of concealing a signing-on fee for Amdy Faye by paying it into the midfielder’s bank account.

Storrie will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on November 16, a spokesman for HM Revenue and Customs Prosecution Office (RCPO) said.

The charge relates to the transfer of midfielder Faye from Auxerre to Portsmouth for £1.5 million in August 2003. It was alleged that Faye was paid a £250,000 signing-on fee on which tax and national insurance was not paid.

The charge alleges Storrie cheated the “public revenue” between July 1 2003, and August 12 2005. It claimed the money was paid into the account of agent Willie McKay, who has also been questioned by police.

Storrie vowed to clear his name two weeks ago when he issued a statement insisting he will defend himself in the “strongest possible terms”.

Storrie was one of nine football executives questioned by City of London Police and HM Revenue and Customs.
