Dias Masterclass, Foden Brilliance as Pep’s men Reach final

Even on the one occasion Ruben Dias went to ground a little early, it did not matter. John Stones and Oleksandr Zinchenko were there to back him up, hurling their bodies in the way of Neymar's shot then embracing as if they were celebrating a goal. It was a moment to sum up Manchester City's performance on the night they finally claimed their place in a Champions League final. Bravery. Steeliness. Defiance. It was all there as Pep Guardiola's side put themselves on the brink of history. So too was the attacking brilliance, of course. The two goals, both converted by Riyad Mahrez, were superbly constructed and ruthlessly dispatched. A 4-1 aggregate scoreline against a side that reached last season's final and knocked out Bayern Munich and Barcelona this year shows th...

Borussia Dortmund sporting director, Michael Zorc, has revealed the club has a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Jadon Sancho, that he can leave if certain criteria is met. However, Zorc has made it clear no such agreement applies to striker Erling Haaland.

Rodgers: Why Iheanacho, Ndidi, Leicester Teammates Struggled

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers believes a hectic fixture list may have caught up Super Eagles duo Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi and their teammates following their 1-1 draw against 10-man Southampton on Friday night. Leicester played against 10 men for 80 minutes of the game after Jannik Vestergaard was sent off for denying Jamie Vardy a goalscoring opportunity. But despite that, it was Southampton who took the lead through James Ward-Prowse’s penalty. Jonny Evans headed home an equaliser from a brilliant cross from Iheanacho. Rodgers’ men however failed to find a winner and therefore dropped points in the race to finish in the top four. And while not offering it as an excuse, Rodgers said their schedule could have contributed to their stalemate at St Mary’s. “W...

Brighton Surge Towards Safety with Leeds Win

Brighton eased any fears of relegation with a convincing 2-0 win over Leeds that took them 10 points clear of Fulham in the drop zone. With only two wins from their past 20 home Premier League matches, Brighton needed a fast start to settle the nerves and got it when Welbeck was fouled inside the area by Ezgjan Alioski. The penalty was coolly converted by Gross. Leeds, without Kalvin Phillips to injury, lacked the attacking spark to seriously trouble the hosts and Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay both wasted huge opportunities to take the game away from Marcelo Bielsa's men. Brighton's failure to convert those chances didn't cost them though as Welbeck popped up with the second goal, skilfully making a chance for himself before firing into the bottom corner.
