CHRIS SUTTON: Liverpool and Manchester City deserve credit for raising their hands to participate in this mouthguard process … but let’s hope it’s a quick process – we need answers NOW

Well done to Liverpool and Manchester City for starting this test.

I’m amazed that clubs now have staffers measuring your sleep, heart rate and sprints, yet they don’t measure what could be the most dangerous part of the game – what heading the ball can do to your brain.

This study, which uses a mouthguard, is expected to help us solve that.

In Norwich I may practice on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

It would be nice to know what that did to my brain. Since your upper jaw is attached to your skull, we are told this is how this mouthguard measures trauma.

I just hope this is a quick process. The FA says they have been advised to limit how often players are exposed to headlines.

Let’s get this study started and get it done sooner rather than later.
