    Will Carling

    "Part of the pressure is to deal with it and to stay calm, stay controlled and realise they have got four pool games, there is plenty of time and to start well," added Carling.

    "I think there is huge pressure on England being the home World Cup for them and also being in the hardest pool the World Cup has ever seen.

    "It’s important they start in a controlled composed way which will give them a lot of confidence.”

    West Ham Utd v Newcastle Utd (20:00 BST)

    Andy Carroll

    Andy Carroll is in contention for West Ham after recovering from a knee injury, but Alex Song, who has rejoined on loan, is out with an ankle problem. The Hammers' trio of new signings, Victor Moses, Michail Antonio and Nikica Jelavic, are all available.

    Newcastle will be without striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, who is serving a three-match suspension. Defender Paul Dummett is also out after suffering a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury.

  17. Commentator's notes

    West Ham Utd v Newcastle Utd (20:00 BST)

    Jonathan Pearce

    BBC football commentator

    Upton Park has been blanketed with sentimentality as it enters the final season. The players have looked stifled by it all, starting with defeats by Bournemouth and Leicester like shuffling sleepwalkers.

    Slaven Bilic

    But the old ground really wakes up under floodlights. Now West Ham's home form might match their away successes.

    With just one goal in eight away league games, Newcastle lack potency. They've averaged just over 30% of possession in their last three games.

    If West Ham start well, the visitors might not see enough of the ball to get back into it.

  19. Change of mood

    Manchester City v Juventus (Tues, 19:45 BST)

    Ian Cheeseman

    BBC Radio Manchester's City commentator

    Sergio Aguero

    How quickly things change in football. A week ago, Manchester City had Sergio Aguero fully fit with Wilfried Bony and Kelechi Iheanacho in reserve, but going into their first Champions League game against Juventus, Aguero is injured and Iheanacho, the hero at Crystal Palace, was not registered in the European squad.

    On the other hand, the return of David Silva and Raheem Sterling is a huge boost and, although Manuel Pellegrini would not confirm that Kevin De Bruyne will start against the Italians, it looks likely that he will.

  20. What the manager says - Slaven Bilic

    West Ham Utd v Newcastle Utd (20:00 BST)

    "We have to start picking up points at home, and I'm very confident because our reactions in the second halves of both games were good, and if we can do it from the start and cut out the silly mistakes, we will be alright."

  21. Lawro's prediction

    West Ham Utd v Newcastle Utd (20:00 BST)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Liverpool defender

    Nobody is doubting the ability of Newcastle boss Steve McClaren - but now it is a case of him finding his best team and knitting it together. West Ham are proving very difficult to predict at the moment, winning away at Arsenal and Liverpool but losing both games at home, so I am probably best off going for a draw.

    The British Horseracing Authority hearing had been earmarked for Thursday, but has been put back to tie in with the availability of lawyers.

    Sussex 162-5 v Somerset - tea, day one

    BBC Somerset's Anthony Gibson at Hove: "The wicket of Ed Joyce, caught down the leg side off Jamie Overton off the last ball before tea for a well-made 83, turned what had been an evenly-balanced session very definitely Somerset's way. 

    "In between the showers, their seamers had plugged away, picking up the wickets of Chris Nash and Luke Wright, but it was the extra pace of Overton that first unsettled the Sussex captain and then removed him."

    BBC Radio Manchester's Scott Read at Old Trafford:

    "Jimmy Anderson bowling to Kumar Sangakkara one highlight of what's been an engrossing day's play so far at Old Trafford. 

    "The England bowler was brought straight back into the attack when the Sri Lankan batsman came out to the middle and he was tempted into a driving Anderson who found the outside edge. The game feels about level at tea."

    The Rugby World Cup will be a golden opportunity to take the game to new audiences in England. But with 20 of England's 31-man squad at least partly educated in the fee-paying sector - compared to only 11 in 2003, when England won the Webb Ellis Cup - the BBC investigates whether rugby union in England is becoming more exclusive

    The 29-year-old paceman was suspended from all forms of cricket on Sunday as police investigate allegations he "tortured and abused" the maid who is undergoing treatment in hospital.

    Football

    Is being manager of non-league New Mills the hardest job in football?

    We're not even sure Sir Alex Ferguson could cope at the Derbyshire club after they appointed their fourth manager in three months.

    The latest to go was Andy Fearn, who resigned as manager after a 7-1 home defeat to Prescot Cables that left his side bottom of the table, having lost all eight matches this season and conceding 30 goals.

    New Mills had got through two managers before the season had started with Roy Soule leaving in June and his replacement Keith Briggs also departing to to take up a coaching job at Sheffield United.
