I close the door and I escape the world.”

For James, one of the most appealing aspects of maximalism is its DIY quality – her living room includes fake cheese plant leaves bought for less than £2 from Ikea and spray-painted neon orange and pink, as well as a customised Mothercare clock from when her children were young.

Luka Jovic reminds Eintracht Frankfurt of his quality and potential

Saturday 10:50 GMT

Eintracht Frankfurt scored seven goals against Fortuna Düsseldorf in matchday eight's opener in the Bundesliga, but the game was less about the scoreline and more about the man who scored five of the seven.
