  2. Vardy seeks repeat

    Leicester v Liverpool (Monday, 20:00 GMT)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Jamie Vardy scores against Liverpool last term

    More on tonight's 5 live commentary from the King Power Stadium and what a goal Jamie Vardy scored in the corresponding fixture last season, when Leicester won 2-0 and remained at the top of the table. That remains Leicester's only victory in their last nine Premier League meetings with Liverpool and they have lost six of those games.

    This term Vardy has scored only five league goals, but his Champions League effort against Sevilla ended a nine-match barren streak. However, the 30-year-old former Fleetwood forward has scored in just one of his last 18 Premier League games.

    Paul Thompson:  After taking a surprise lead we wasted time kicking the ball on to the A1M and letting them fetch it. Only one ball!

    Tim Stubbs:  How about a penalty taken three times, saved twice, then scored. Horrendous mix-up Millwall v Peterboro' 13/4/09. Posh lost 2-0.

  10. British pair claim fourth place

    Pentathlon

    Britain's Jess Varley and Myles Pillage recorded a creditable fourth in the Mixed Relay at World Cup 1 in Los Angeles.

    Plymouth’s Pillage and Fotheringhay’s Varley began with a rapid time of 1:59.60 in the pool, one of just two teams to dip under the two minute barrier.     

    The second quickest laser-run of the day saw them move up three places but they finished 14 seconds off the bronze medal.      

  11. Palace coach covered in graffiti

    Football

    Crystal Palace's team coach was vandalised before Saturday's 1-0 win over Middlesbrough, with the club's name and colours sprayed on to it.

    Contrary to speculation, the coach had not been provided for Boro to use for their visit to Selhurst Park.

    The Eagles used another bus to travel to the Premier League game.

    A club spokesman said: "The team bus was covered in graffiti overnight on Friday ahead of the game on Saturday. Police have been informed."

  12. No refunds for England v Italy

    Frank Keogh

    BBC Sport

    Fans will not be given refunds for their England v Italy Six Nations tickets despite England coach Eddie Jones suggesting they might seek compensation.

    Jones said an unexpected Italy tactic “wasn’t rugby” as they frustrated the Six Nations champions before finally losing 36-15 at Twickenham on Sunday.

     Italy chose not to engage in rucks and led 10-5 at half-time.

     "If you paid for your ticket, ask for your money back,” said Jones.

    However, it is understood refunds will not be issued. The Rugby Football Union declined to say whether there had been any requests along those lines.

  13. Murray beaten by Evans in Dubai doubles

    Tennis

    Andy Murray lost out to fellow Briton Dan Evans in the first round of the Dubai Championships. However, it was not a shock in the singles it was a doubles contest as Murray and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic were beaten 6-1 7-6 (7-2) by Evans and Luxembourg's Gilles Muller in an hour and 12 minutes. 

    World number one Murray's quest for the singles title begins tomorrow against Tunisia's Malek Jaziri, ranked 51, the first time the pair have met in a competitive match.

    SMS Message: Playing in a Sunday cricket match a few years back and the game went down to the last ball. Ball is bowled wide(ish) outside off stump, the non-striker runs but the striking batsman refuses the single as the ball went through to me keeping. I've rolled the ball down the other end to the bowler who has taken the bails off. We find the umpire (old chap, nice fella) has signalled a wide as he enjoyed the game so much that he "thought the match deserved to end as a tie". What he didn't realise was that they needed one to win, not one to tie. As the wide had been given prior to the bails being removed it meant we lost the game; however the result didn't affect league positions (we were rock bottom) and it makes for a good story! from Ryan

  17. Leicester's losing streak

    Leicester v Liverpool (Monday, 20:00 GMT)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Some worrying statistics for Leicester fans ahead of tonight's 5 live commentary match with fifth-placed Liverpool, the most disturbing of which is 21 points from 25 games, which leaves them in the relegation zone.

    The Premier League champions are the only team in the top five European leagues not to have scored a league goal in 2017 and have kept just two clean sheets in their last 22 games in all competitions, with none in their last 10.

  18. Your gamesmanship tales

    #bbcsportsday or text 81111

    Luke:  Under 14s - My team was bottom of the league and we had to play the second place team but the ref didn't turn up so the opposition's manager officiated the game. Miraculously we were 1-0 up through the whole match, so naturally the ref added eight minutes of extra time and blew the whistle when his team equalised

    Anon: In youth indoor cricket when a batman scored 25 he retired and came back in last. We deliberately dropped their last batsman three times to stop the opener coming back in.

  20. 'Successful on Mars or the moon'

    Football

    A straight bat from Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola regarding his star striker's future.

    Ibrahimovic, who has scored 26 goals in his debut season for Manchester United, has the option of a second term at Old Trafford but Railoa told Talksport: "I never speak about contract details with the press - I think that's something between the player, the club and myself.  "I don't disclude anything. Anything can happen and we will see what happens." Asked about the 35-year-old Swede's achievements in his first season in England Raiola adds: "Knowing how he is and what kind of person and man he is on and off the field, he can do it anywhere. He's the only player in the world who can be successful on Mars or the moon."
