Welcome to The OTB Brief; everything you need to know about sport, every morning - we have all the big sporting news for you this morning.

GAA

Crowds of up to 400 will be permitted at GAA club games in Ulster, but it only applies to the six counties under the jurisdiction of the Northern Ireland executive.

Ulster GAA have advised patrons to wear face masks at games and bring their own hand sanitiser.

Only 200 members are currently allowed at fixtures south of the border.

SOCCER

League of Ireland players will take a knee to support the Black Lives Matter campaign when the season resumes next Friday.

PFAI members will do so before matches for all eight rounds of the season until the end of September.

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has come out in support of his Manchester United counterpart David De Gea ahead of Sunday's Premier League showdown between the teams.

Champions League qualification is at stake this weekend, with United leading the Foxes by just a point in the table.

De Gea made 2 mistakes in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea.

Schmeichel says there's more scrutiny on De Gea because of the position he's in.

otb brief Liverpool midfielder Fabinho had his house burgled as the Reds celebrated a first Premier League win on Wednesday night.

Items of jewellery and an Audi car were stolen by thieves in the raid.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta thinks his team's position is a true reflection of the level they are at.

The Londoners sit 10th in the Premier League heading into the final round of fixtures on Sunday.

Arteta says they need to make the right decisions this summer to restore the Gunners to their former levels.
