    Plus listen to Monday Club on Radio 5 live at 7pm before kick-off and get involved as Mark Chapman asks: Who should Manchester United build their team around next season? Rooney? Carrick? Herrera? Text 85058 or tweet @5liveSport to get involved.

  2. Manchester United's biggest fan?


    A South African man whose home was a shrine to Manchester United has fulfilled his dream of watching his team play at Old Trafford.

    "I have been saving for this trip for a year so this was worth all the effort," said Jayendran Subramoney, battling tears of joy after Sunday's draw at home to Arsenal.

  3. Can anyone stop them?

  4. Honda tipped to deliver the goods

    Formula 1

    Honda will deliver a winning engine despite the slow start to its Formula 1 return, Mercedes' engine boss says.

    Honda's engine has been F1's least competitive at the start of the company's new relationship with McLaren this year.

    The team are targeting race wins in 2016 and the title with Fernando Alonso, who has a deal until 2017.

    Mercedes' Andy Cowell told BBC Sport: "They are McLaren-Honda. They can win world championships."

  5. West Brom v Chelsea (Mon, 20:00 BST)


    Some more stats ahead of tonight's Premier League game which is live on Radio 5 live and commentary on the BBC Sport website.

    West Brom have lost 17 times so far in all competitions this season (compared to Chelsea's two) - although only five of those defeats have come in the league since Pulis has taken over.

    And Jose Mourinho has been very complimentary about his Baggies counterpart in the build-up to tonight's contest.

    "If I own an English club, I sign Tony Pulis," Mourinho said. "It's as simple as that - he's a guarantee to achieve what the club wants."

    Whether Jose would be that friendly if the title was still at stake is open to debate...

  6. Get involved

    BBC Radio 5 live

    On Radio 5 live tonight at 7pm, Mark Chapman and the Monday Club will be asking;

    There will also be football discussion, sports news and build-up to West Brom v Chelsea.

  7. Holmes takes legal advice over Smith comments


    Sunderland Ladies say defender Abby Holmes is taking legal advice after Arsenal striker Kelly Smith claimed she "intended" to hurt her.

    Smith tore three ankle ligaments when tackled by Holmes during a Women's Super League One match last month.

    The 36-year-old former England international described the challenge as "malicious" - an allegation the Sunderland player "strongly refutes".

    Smith also claimed Holmes was not good enough to play in the top division.

    England's Martin Atkinson will take charge of the Europa League final as defending champion Sevilla plays Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk at the National Stadium in Warsaw on 27 May.

  10. West Brom v Chelsea (Mon, 20:00 BST)


    These teams have history.

    In November 2013, Eden Hazard scored the most controversial of stoppage-time penalties to salvage a 2-2 draw for Chelsea that - at the time - extended Jose Mourinho's run of home Premier League matches without defeat to 66.


    West Brom's Steven Reid - who earlier announced his retirement from football - was adjudged to have fouled Ramires for what appeared to anyone other than a Chelsea fan to be an innocuous coming-together.

    The Baggies will hope to feel a little less aggrieved after tonight's meeting.

    The BBC Sport website will have live commentary of the match from 18:30 BST.

  11. Silver for Sansum


    Britain's Damon Sansum takes silver at World Taekwondo Championships after losing final 16-3 to Iran's Mahdi Khodabakhshi.

  12. West Brom v Chelsea (Mon, 20:00 BST)


    One game tonight in the Premier League. It may be a bit of a dead rubber but here are a few interesting stats.

    Tony Pulis has won only one of his 12 Premier League matches as a manager against Chelsea (D2, L9), when his Crystal Palace team won 1-0 at Selhurst Park in March 2014.

    Chelsea need one more goal to set a new club Premier League record for most away goals in a season. Their current tally of 37 equals 2004-05.

    West Brom have conceded a league-high 20 goals from set pieces this season (including penalties). However, only Arsenal (21) have scored more set-piece goals than the Baggies (20).

    Chelsea are unbeaten in 16 league matches (W11, D5) - the longest run in the division this season.

    Rugby Union

    Taqele Naiyaravoro

    Glasgow Warriors have signed Fijian winger Taqele Naiyaravoro from Super Rugby champions New South Wales Waratahs on a three-year deal.

    The 23-year-old can play on the wing or at centre and will join the Warriors at the end of the current Super Rugby season, subject to obtaining a visa and passing a medical.

  15. Ings "upset" by social media abuse


    Burnley's Danny Ings says he has been upset by abuse he has received on Twitter.

    Boss Sean Dyche said he expects the striker to leave the club in the summer when his contract ends.

    "I got a small minority of people sending abusive tweets," said Ings. "That [the abuse] did upset me a little bit because of everything this club means to me and what we've been through together."

  16. Stop the clocks


    A stopwatch used to time Roger Bannister's first four-minute mile has sold for £20,000 at auction.

    Sir Roger, now 86, made his run at Oxford's Iffley Road track on 6 May 1954, when he was 25.

    Roger Bannister about to cross the tape at the end of his record breaking mile run at Iffley Road, Oxford

    Used by timekeeper WJ Burfitt, the watch was expected to attract bids between £5,000 and £8,000.

    A collection of autographs and pictures from four-minute mile athletes, also including Chris Brasher and Chris Chataway, were sold for £420.

  17. Bournemouth will not increase capacity


    Premier League-bound Bournemouth have confirmed they will not be expanding the Goldsands Stadium for their first season in the top flight.


    The Cherries had looked into increasing their 11,700 capacity for next term, which will be the smallest ground in the top flight.

    However, with other requirements needed to improve the stadium, the club have decided against increasing capacity.

  18. Gloucestershire make steady start


    BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Bob Hunt at Bristol:

    Gloucestershire 87-2 v Kent

    "With 67 overs to be bowled after a late start and Gloucestershire, on the back of two successive away wins, have made a steady if unspectacular start.

    "They are without Will Tavare who is ill, but Iain Cockbain was pulled out of a second XI match to take his place and is still there, unbeaten on 20 at tea.

    "Chris Dent and Gareth Roderick are out, falling to Calum Haggett and Darren Stevens respectively."

  19. Uefa to rethink rules


    This is likely to frustrate Man City fans. The financial fair play rules that saw the Blues handed a huge fine by Uefa last season are set to be relaxed.

    Uefa president Michel Platini

    In an interview with French radio station RTL, Uefa president Michel Platini said FFP was "working well" but would be "eased" this summer.

    This followed a report in Le Parisien newspaper on Sunday that said "significant changes" are on the table.

    Manchester City and Paris St Germain were fined last year for breaching FFP.

  20. Glamorgan look to rebuild


    BBC Essex's Nick Gledhill at Cardiff:

    Glamorgan 85-3 v Essex

    "Glamorgan made steady progress on a bright and blustery afternoon after play began at 1.40 with James Foster, captain of injury-hit Essex, inviting the home side to bat.

    "Jamie Porter removed James Kettleborough for one, in-form Will Bragg was adjudged lbw to Graham Napier for 17 and Colin Ingram was caught behind off Ryan Ten Doeschate for 26.

    "Jacques Rudolph will resume unbeaten on 32 with the day evenly poised."

  21. Koeman approach impresses McMenemy


    Former Southampton boss Lawrie McMenemy believes last summer's appointment of Ronald Koeman as manager was a "masterstroke" by the club.

    Saints are currently seventh in the table, but could finish as high as fifth - which would be the club's highest Premier League finish.

    The money was there and he used it very wisely and brought in players he obviously knew," McMenemy, 78, told BBC South Today. "It's all to do with the management in the end, and he got them in and got the best out of them, and we can look forward with hope that we can do even better."

    McMenemy was manager of Saints in the 1980s. Here's how Ronald looked back then...

  22. Rain prevents play at Northampton


    There will be no play today in the County Championship Division Two game between Northants and Surrey.

    Jones and Iranian Kimia Zenoorin were level at 9-9 in the -57kg division when the 22-year-old from Flint struck with a reverse to the chest with seconds to go.

    Zenoorin countered as the scoring froze and, by the time it came back online, only the Iranian had been awarded a point and Jones went out 10-9.

    "The scoring system crashed and when it returned, I didn't have the points. I couldn't understand why. I still can't," Jones told the GB Taekwondo website.

  30. Morrison holds nerve


    It has got a bit lost amid Rory McIlroy's heroics on the other side of the Atlantic, but England's James Morrisonwon the Spanish Open by four strokes on Sunday to claim a second European Tour title.

    The 30-year-old from Guildford had shared the lead heading into the final day with compatriot David Howell, who finished in a four-way tie for second.


    Morrison, who won the Madeira Islands Open in 2010, shot a 69 for a 10-under-par 278 at Real Club de Golf El Prat.

    "I stuck to my process all day long and executed," said Morrison after three birdies and no dropped shots in his final round.

  31. Lofty ambitions


    Coach Luis Enrique says Barcelona are already focusing on completing the treble after sealing the Spanish title.


    The Catalans beat Atletico Madrid 1-0 to ensure rivals Real Madrid cannot catch them at the top of La Liga.

    "We have two more titles to win but we have picked up the one for consistency," said Enrique, 45.

    Jenny Meadows, 34, came fifth in the 800m in two minutes 1.37 seconds.

  36. On the comeback trail

  38. West Brom v Chelsea (Mon, 20:00 BST)


    Chelsea have won the title, West Brom are safe... so tonight's meeting won't perhaps be the biggest nail-biter in the world.

    Still, we know you're interested (possibly), so here's some team news ahead of the game.


    West Brom's only absentee is goalkeeper Ben Foster. James Morrison has recovered from the back problem which meant he was only named as a substitute last week.

  40. County cricket prospects improve


    Following a morning washout, things are starting to brighten up around the grounds for today's County Championship fixtures.

    Play has begun in Glamorgan's Division two game against Essex in Cardiff, and will get under way between Gloucestershire and Kent at 14:00 BST.

    There will be an inspection at Wantage Road at 14:30 BST with Northants set to start a game against Surrey, and at the same time at Grace Road, where Leicestershire and Lancashire are waiting to begin day two of their match.

  41. Only Novak is better


    And while we're in tennis mode...

    Andy Murray is playing the best tennis of his career and ranks behind only Novak Djokovic in the race to win the French Open, according to former British number one Annabel Croft.

    "I think Murray's tennis is at a level now where it's almost as high if not higher than when he won Wimbledon and the US Open," Croft said.

    "Beating Nadal in Madrid recently was a really big win mentally for him because he's always looked up to Nadal - but he also knows Nadal is well, well beneath his best.

    "Now he can always say he beat Nadal on clay and in my mind he's the second favourite going into the French Open."

    To celebrate this story, we've dug out the earliest picture of Murray and Djokovic that we could find. It's from 2006. Contrary to appearances, Andy is not, we repeat, not, wearing a wild animal on his head.

  42. Eye-opener


    Andy Murray says he was "amazed" by the level of criticism his appointment of Amelie Mauresmo as coach attracted.

    Andy Murray and Amelie Mauresmo

    The Briton, 28, became the first leading male player to employ a female coach when he hired the Frenchwoman.

    "I knew it would be a big story at the beginning but I thought it would die down quicker than it has," Murray said. "I was very surprised at the amount of criticism she received for each loss I had. I couldn't believe the negativity towards her personally."

    Murray told Red Bulletin magazine some of the negative comments he had heard were "an eye-opening experience for me".

  43. United to respect relegation battle - Mata


    Juan Mata says Manchester United won't ease off in their last game of the season against relegation-threatened Hull City.

    The Tigers need to beat United to have any chance of staying in the Premier League and send one of Newcastle or Sunderland down, depending on their results.

    "We must finish the season in the best possible way, " wrote the Spaniard in his weekly blog. "We owe it to this badge. Besides, we must respect the fight against relegation between Hull City, Newcastle and, maybe, Sunderland, so we will try to win, as always."

  44. Sousa beats Souza


    This is Portugal's Joao Sousa, ranked 50th in the world.

    The 54-year-old had given the right boot to the Bayern Munich museum but has now demanded it back, reports The Guardian.

    Matthaus made more than 300 league appearances for Bayern but has had numerous run-ins with the club since his retirement, including filing a 500,000 euro lawsuit against the club over money he claimed he was owed from his 2001 testimonial.

  65. Webster unsure about Wildcats future

    Rugby League

    Wakefield Trinity Wildcats coach James Webster has suggested his time at the club could be coming to an end after their Challenge Cup defeat by Leigh.

  91. Sharapova prevails


    Russian third seed Maria Sharapova came from a set down to beat Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 4-6 7-5 6-1 and win her third Italian Open title.

    Maria Sharapova

    Her best chance came at 5-5 in the second set but Sharapova finished the set with eight straight points.

    The Russian capitalised on her opponent's weakness in the third set as she swept to a 35th career crown.

    Simon Jones

    The Ashes series begins at Cardiff's Swalec Stadium on 8 July and Jones has described the current England set-up as "shambolic."

    "Where we are at the moment is not a good place - it's a mess," he said. "We have a lot of talent but if you haven't got guidance then you've got nothing."

  94. Nice gesture


    Blackpool's Premier League promotion-winning team have shown their caring side by donating £5,500 to former coach Gary Parkinson.

    Parkinson, who played right-back for Middlesbrough and Preston during a lengthy career, suffered a stroke at the age of 42 during Blackpool's Premier League season, which left him paralysed from the neck down.

    At a dinner to celebrate five years since Pool's promotion to the top flight - and to try and raise £10,000 for Parkinson - an auction in the room raised almost £4,500.


    That prompted Charlie Adam - now at Stoke, but captain of Blackpool when the club went up - to take the stage and announce the players in the room would contribute the missing £5,500.

    Full story in the Blackpool Gazette.

  105. How to hurt your hooter


    Despite his prowess at tennis, turns our Novak Djokovic isn't quite as adept at opening a bottle of champagne.

    Celebrating on-court after beating Federer, here's how Novak did it. Pointing straight up at his face. Schoolboy error


    At which point, the cork shot off and smacked him on the nose. Ouch.


    Still, given Djokovic had just made it 22 consecutive wins - which means he will go into the French Open, which starts next Monday, in ultra-confident mood - I don't think he'll be too perturbed.

  106. Marching on


    World number one Novak Djokoviccontinued his domination of men's tennis with a 6-4 6-3 win over Roger Federer to win the Italian Open final.


    The pair went toe-to-toe in the opening set but Serbia's Djokovic broke in the 10th game to seal it.

    Full of confidence, he broke Federer early in the second set and the Swiss player never recovered from that.

    Djokovic soon set up two match points and sealed his fourth Rome title when a Federer forehand went wide.

  107. On this day


    Fred Perry

    In 1909, Fred Perry was born. He won three consecutive Wimbledon titles from 1934-36 and he was the first man to win the singles titles at all four grand slam events. He died in 1995.

  108. Bouncing back


    And while we're talking Barca, may we gently shove you in the direction of this piece by BBC Sport's Spanish football writer Andy West.

    He lists 10 reasons why Barcelona - who failed to win a single trophy in 2014 - have bounced back in such style.


    These include the impact of Luis Suarez. "His relentless work rate and excellent, intelligent movement provide a constant challenge to opposing defenders, who regularly find themselves stretched and dragged out of position by the Uruguayan's perceptive running," writes West.

    Suarez has also scored 24 goals and, perhaps even more impressively, kept his teeth to himself.

  109. Brilliant Barca


    It must be tough being a Barcelona fan. It's not a question of if you win, it's by how many and which trophies you'll lift.

    Well, they've just secured league, Lionel Messi's strike giving the club its 23rd Spanish title as they beat Atletico Madrid to regain the La Liga crown.


    Messi's 41st league goal of the season ensured that Real Madrid will finish second - despite Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Espanyol.

    With one game left Barca hold an insurmountable four-point lead over rivals Real.

  110. The morning after the night before


    It's not a great morning for Stuart Broad.

    The England all-rounder has apologised for missing a sponsor's event after an alleged drinking session with former England wicketkeeper Matt Prior.


    According to reports, Broad returned to his hotel at 07:00 BST on Thursday and was unable to attend the 09:30 event.

    The 28-year-old said: "I woke up with a migraine. I wasn't on England duty for the ECB. But I did apologise for putting them in that position. It was probably not as bad as it was portrayed."

    Not ideal preparation for the two-Test series against New Zealand, which starts on Thursday.

  111. Riots after cup tie


    Police fired 30 rounds of tear gas to disperse rioting fans and arrested 25 after the FA Cup semi-final in Malaysia.

    Following a game between Terengganu and Singapore's Lions XII, fans allegedly torched an ambulance and broke stadium doors.


    The trouble began when a Terengganu goal that would have taken them through to the final was ruled out late in the match.

    "We fired 30 rounds of tear gas because the protesters were stubborn and refused the disperse after the game," the local police chief said.

  113. 'I've learned to finish things off'


    Needless to say Rory McIlroy was rather pleased after his storming four days in America.

    "Everything is firing on all cylinders for me," he said. "I feel like I'm a more controlled player these days. I've learned how to finish things off."


    He added: "I felt if I made six birdies there was no chance of anybody catching me.

    "I did what I wanted the last few weeks, got a couple of wins, got myself up the Fedex Cup standings and solidified my positions in the rankings."

  114. Masterful Mac


    Rory McIlroy is a man who can do little wrong at the moment.

    The Northern Irish world number one, 26, finished on 21 under par with a final round 69 in North Carolina to earn his second win at Quail Hollow.

    America's Patrick Rodgers and Webb Simpson tied for second on 14 under.

  115. Depay jets in


    David Ornstein

    BBC Sport

    "Memphis Depay flew to Manchester on Sunday night and will undergo a medical at Carrington on Monday ahead of his move from PSV Eindhoven to Manchester United.


    "There is then paperwork to be completed before the 21-year-old's signing can be be finalised and he must wait until the transfer window opens to be registered. United will pay €34m (£25m), with €9m (£6.5m) in bonuses to follow subject to clauses being met."

    Depay made his final appearance for PSV on Sunday, playing 83 minutes of their 3-2 victory at Den Haag.

  116. 'It's difficult for him'


    Louis Van Gaal has been pretty blunt with his comments about the De Gea situation.


    "De Gea is Spanish, he is a Spanish international. Now a Spanish club is coming. His girlfriend is Spanish and his father and mother come over every week or two weeks to watch him - it is difficult for him," said the United boss.

    "I don't think I can persuade him because he knows everything that he has at Manchester United at this moment."

    Sounds pretty cut and dried to us, which means United will be in market for a keeper this summer and De Gea needs a one-way airline ticket for Madrid.

  117. David to depart?


    So then, to the big story overnight and Man United boss Louis van Gaal's comments that keeper David De Gea could leave Old Trafford in the summer and head to Real Madrid.


    De Gea went off with a hamstring injury during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford, which makes him a doubt for United's last match of the season at Hull City next weekend - and means he may have played his final game for the club.

    Real have earmarked the 24-year-old Spain international as the successor to veteran keeper Iker Casillas, and he is sure to be tempted by the possibility rejoining his family and girlfriend in his homeland, according to Van Gaal.
