All to play for at Bristol

England hold a 1-0 lead after two matches of the five-game ODI series against Pakistan, but they can take little for granted against such a dangerous opponent. The first match of the series was lost to rain, while the second was won by a mere 12 runs by the hosts, despite a nine-six blitz by […]

Capital hopes to be tested

Arsenal and Chelsea hope to be able to set up an all-Premier League Europa League final, but both teams face very tricky semi-final opponents. The Gunners play host to Valencia, who for those with long memories, beat them on penalties in the final of the European Cup Winners Cup final back in 1980. The two […]

Clarets in form to trouble Chelsea

Chelsea are likely to be tested to the full on Monday evening when they host a Burnley side who have won three Premier League games in a row to move clear of the relegation zone. The Blues head into the game at Stamford Bridge boosted by having reached the semi-finals of the Europa League, although […]

Gunners need to sting Hornets

Arsenal head to Vicarage Road to take on Watford on Monday evening knowing that they need a win to avoid losing ground in their push for a top-four finish. The Gunners fell to a 1-0 defeat at Everton last time out and they cannot afford another slip-up against the Hornets, who will no doubt be […]

Home form favours the Magpies

Saturday has just three Premier League games on the schedule, with the meeting of Newcastle United and Crystal Palace at St James’ Park perhaps the pick of the bunch. Both teams have surely done enough to escape the threat of relegation and one more win for either side would make almost certain of their survival. […]

Wolves can take the final step

Manchester City may be the favourites to win the FA Cup but, after knocking Liverpool and Manchester United out of the competition, Wolves will be confident of lifting the trophy for the first time since 1960. Nuno Espirito Santo’s team have been outstanding this season following last term’s promotion and are in contention to finish […]

City ready to seal Schalke success

Two late away goals have given Manchester City the platform needed to ensure they eliminate Schalke to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals. Trailing 2-1 with five minutes to play in the first leg in Gelsenkirchen the Citizens were in a slight spot of bother, only for Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling to find the […]

Tough one to call at Basseterre

England went into the first T20 of the three-match series against the West Indies as the slight outsiders, but eventually came out on top in St Lucia. Now they have an opportunity to seal a series victory in St Kitts on Friday although there is seemingly little to choose between the two sides. West Indies […]

England have last chance for success

Having failed to come out on top in either the Test or one-day international series, England have a final chance for some glory in three T20s in the West Indies. However, the omens do not look good for the tourists, who have lost six of their last ten Twenty20 internationals and six of their last […]

Pivotal ODI showdown in Grenada

It’s still all to play for between the West Indies and England in the fourth ODI, with the winner of the match on Wednesday able to ensure they cannot lose the series. The five-match programme is currently tied at 1-1, with the third ODI in Grenada on Monday washed out without a ball being bowled. […]
