  5. Garth's Team of the Week

    Garth Crooks

    Former Tottenham Hotspur striker

    Manchester City's pursuit of a third Premier League title in four seasons continued with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace, while a Gareth Bale hat-trick helped Tottenham to a 4-0 win over Sheffield United.

    Of course the biggest news was the match that didn't take place as Manchester United's fixture with Liverpool was postponed. The game was called off after about 200 fans broke into Old Trafford to protest against the Glazer family's ownership of the club.

    Then on Monday, top-four chasers West Ham came from behind to win 2-1 at Burnley, while West Brom look certain to go down after they were held to a 1-1 draw by local rivals Wolves.

  6. Countries allowed to select 26-player squads for Euro 2020

    Teams will be allowed to select a 26-player squad instead of the usual 23 at this summer's European Championship.

    The change has been implemented to lessen the load on players after a club season compressed because of the coronavirus pandemic. It will also help managers adapt if outbreaks occur during the tournament.

    The decision, taken by Uefa's national teams committee in April, was approved by Uefa's executive committee on Tuesday. In a statement, it said the rules were approved "in order to guarantee the smooth running and continuity of the competition in light of the Covid-19 pandemic".

    A rule allowing each team to make up to five substitutes per game had already been confirmed. However, 23 players will remain the maximum number permitted on team sheets for matches.

    Boss Mauricio Pochettino has urged Paris St-Germain to be more clinical in their Champions League semi-final second leg with Manchester City.

    PSG are looking to reach the final for the second year running, having lost to Bayern Munich in Lisbon last season.

    "We will try to give trust and confidence to the players," said Pochettino.

    "The intention is to deprive them of the possession but it is a challenge. They have played five years under the same philosophy with Pep [Guardiola].

    "We are trying to get more balance. We need to be ready to suffer in some moments of the game. We need to be clinical and aggressive."

    Paris St-Germain have said they need to assess Kylian Mbappe to see if he will be fit to face Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final second leg. The striker, 22, missed Saturday's win over Lens with a calf injury.

    PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Monday that his top scorer will be monitored in training before a decision is made on his availability for the game in Manchester.

    "Today he is going to start an individual training session and see if he can be with the team," said the former Tottenham boss. "There is still one day and we will see and decide if he is going to be available."

    "We arrive in a good moment and I said to the guys, 'Don't think too much to win the game'," he said. "It is the same message of the last six months."

    Guardiola won the competition twice with Barcelona but this is the furthest he has got in five attempts with City.

    "We approach this game like another game," Guardiola added. "We start with a small advantage but we have to play to win the game. This is all we are going to do."
