  Trevor Sinclair has said that he fears for Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea as they face Real Madrid in the return fixture of their Champions League semifinal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Former Man City and England winger Sinclair thinks Hazard could prove to be a big problem for Chelsea. “I can’t help but think Eden Hazard is going to...

Jane Fonda, 83, has said she doesn't desire to be in a relationship, but if she does, it will only be with a younger man.

Excerpts What is your take on the uproar trailing the recent increase in price of fuel and electricity tariff?
