'The important thing is to build the project'

Chelsea v Tottenham (20:00 BST)

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "We can feel a little bit disappointed because the gap behind Leicester is big, but realistically we have a very good, young squad.

"If it is not possible to win the title this season, we need to try next season. The potential of the club and the squad we have is massive, and the important thing is to build the project and philosophy and to settle the basis.

"The basis is now very solid and only the future can be brilliant."

Selby restores three-frame advantage

World Championship final

It's looking good for Leicester's Mark Selby in the World Championship final. He leads Ding Junhui 14-11 after a closely fought afternoon session.

Selby pinched the last frame to leave himself just four frames from victory heading into the evening session.

Play resumes at 19:00 BST - we will have live TV and text coverage.

'Spurs are clinging on'

Chelsea v Tottenham (20:00 BST)

John Murray

BBC Radio 5 live commentator

"So it appears that all of us who predicted in August that Chelsea would have the final say in the destination of this season's Premier League title may, after all, be proved correct!

"Tottenham are now clinging on. Leicester are almost over the line. And Chelsea have made no attempt to hide the fact they would take pleasure in denying their London rivals, while at the same time making it possible for their former manager Claudio Ranieri to enjoy his finest hour."

Burnley's promotion party on hold

Burnley 0-0 QPR

The champagne remains very much on ice at Turf Moor. It's 0-0 at the break after what one might kindly describe as an attritional first half between Burnley and QPR.

Remember, a win will take Sean Dyche's side back to the Premier League.

You can follow the action in our live text here.

'It will be very tough for Spurs'

Chelsea v Tottenham (20:00 BST)

Alan Shearer

Ex-England captain and Match of the Day pundit

"The point that Leicester earned at Old Trafford means Tottenham now have to win all three of their remaining games to finish champions, starting at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

"Chelsea have nothing to play for in terms of league position but, as some of their players have already said, they do not want Spurs to go there and win, and would love it if their London rivals miss out on the title.

"So it will be a very tough game for Mauricio Pochettino's side. Leicester have done their bit, now it is over to Tottenham and we will find out if they can respond."

Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman is finally hoping to put his injury nightmare behind him when he makes his first start in 463 days against Genoa in Serie A this evening.

The Netherlands international hasn't been in starting XI since a 1-1 draw with Fiorentina on 25 January last year.

Strootman has suffered a series of knee ligament problems over the last two years, requiring three operations.

Alli out and Dier doubtful for Spurs

Chelsea v Tottenham (20:00 BST)

Chelsea defenders John Terry and Gary Cahill are expected to be available to face Tottenham on Monday.

Terry has missed 10 of the past 12 matches with hamstring and Achilles problems, while illness ruled Cahill out of last week's win at Bournemouth.

Spurs midfielder Eric Dier is a doubt after suffering concussion against West Brom last week.

Dele Alli begins a three-match ban for violent conduct. It will be the first league game he's missed since November's goalless draw with Chelsea.

With 50 minutes to go in today's Sportsday, we're going to start turning our attention to tonight's crucial Premier League match between Chelsea and Tottenham...

Man City women thump Belles


Manchester City women have opened up a six-point lead at the top of the Women's Super League One with a 6-0 thrashing of Doncaster Belles.

The hosts led 5-0 at the break as Lucy Bronze, Jill Scott, Jane Ross, Jen Beattie and Kosovare Asllani scored. England striker Toni Duggan added a sixth from close range late on.

Nick Cushing's side have won each of their first five league games of 2016 without conceding. He could teach Manuel Pellegrini a thing or two.

NBA star Kristaps Porzingis is taking the summer off. Sorry, Latvia.

The New York Knicks power forward missed the final seven games of his rookie season with a shoulder strain.

Knicks coach Kurt Rambis had previously said he'd prefer that Porzingis didn't represent his national side at the Rio Olympics.

Selby preserves slender lead

World Championship final

Over at the Crucible, it's still advantage Mark Selby in snooker's World Championship final.

China's Ding Junhui had a golden opportunity to draw level for the first time at 11-11, but it was Selby who won the frame to move 12-10 ahead.

Leicester native is hoping to complete a memorable sporting double for the city, with Leicester City potentially able to clinch the Premier League title this evening.

Batsmen Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal (pictured) will play no part in Pakistan's tour of England after they were dropped from the squad for disciplinary reasons.

Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq, who named 35 players in the provisional party, said: "We have to be strict on discipline and for that we have to take some serious steps."

Fast bowler Mohammad Amir, who was banned for five years for spot-fixing on Pakistan's 2010 tour of England, is among those in the squad.

Seagulls nab late leveller

Brighton 1-1 Derby

Scenes at the Amex! Brighton have one last corner in the 94th minute, keeper David Stockdale is up there making a nuisance of himself, the ball drops to James Wilson and he fires it into the net.

It means the Seagulls rise to second in the Championship table and can go up if they beat Middlesbrough on the final day. Burnley will go up with a win against QPR - that one kicks off in 15 minutes.

Earlier, Brighton had Lewis Dunk sent off - he'll miss the game against Boro, and potentially the first match in the play-offs.

Fifa told to consider Gibraltar


Recognised by Uefa since 2013, Gibraltar are yet to get the nod from world football's governing body that they can compete for a place at the 2018 World Cup.

However, the Court of Arbitration for Sport has today ordered Fifa to consider Gibraltar's application for membership.

The part-timers finished bottom of Group D in Euro 2016 qualifying without collecting a single point. The draw for 2018 World Cup qualifying has already been made, but the verdict raises the possibility that Uefa could be forced to add Gibraltar to one of its groups.

Derby take the lead

Brighton 0-1 Derby

Is that the goal that takes Burnley a step closer to the Premier League?

Third-placed Brighton trail Derby 1-0 in the Championship - Andreas Weimann has just scored with almost his first touch as a sub.

If Brighton don't win, Burnley can go up tonight if they beat QPR. Speaking of which...

Yarmolenko and Stepanenko in happier times...

News reaches Sportsday that all is not rosy in the Ukraine camp ahead of Euro 2016. 

International colleagues Andriy Yarmolenko and Taras Stepanenko had to be separated after coming to blows during a domestic match between Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kiev at the weekend.

Stepanenko was kicked by Yarmolenko on Sunday for kissing his club's badge and staging a provocative goal celebration. Defender Stepanenko then raised the stakes by telling Shakhtar's website: "I would like the whole country to know my friendship with Yarmolenko has ended." Burn.

National coach Mykhaylo Fomenko said: "We have to sort this out so it does not affect our mission." Go ahead and book that team bonding weekend, Mykhaylo.

There's no business like...

Rugby union

Rugby player, chicken farmer, musical star?

Wasps hooker Edd Shervington is to seek a new career in show business when he retires at the end of the season.

At the age of 31, the Welsh chicken farmer, who runs a successful family free range egg business in Gwent, is serious about fulfilling a genuine ambition to tread the boards.

"I'm sure people will think my West End ambitions are a wind-up," he said.

'Watch the barnet'


Remember when Peter Crouch hitched a ride on the back of the dreadlocks of Trinidad and Tobago's Brent Sancho to score for England in the 2006 World Cup? 

Violent conduct apparently. Three-game ban if found guilty.

Leicester's Robert Huth will be nervously checking his inbox on Tuesday to see if the FA consider his follicle-focused challenge on Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini worthy of a charge.

Fellaini, for his apparent elbow in retaliation, will be doing the same.

Championship update

Brighton 0-0 Derby

Heading towards half-time at Brighton and it remains goalless, meaning if it stays the same a home win for Burnley against QPR later would see Sean Dyche's side return to the Premier League.

That's a big 'if' of course, but Middlesbrough and Brighton play each other on the final day of the season and therefore can’t both overtake Burnley.

No Euro plans for Andros


Andros Townsend's superb free-kick edged Newcastle out of the Premier League drop zone on Saturday, but the winger isn't thinking about making Roy Hodgson's England squad this summer.

"The manager knows my game inside-out and he knows what I can do. If he feels that I can offer something, if he wants a player like myself in the squad, he'll pick me, like he's shown before," he told the club website.

 "I'm not thinking about it. My main focus is helping Newcastle stay in the Premier League. If anything happens on the back of that, then great; if not, then I'll go away and prepare for next season."

Fed out of Madrid Open


Spectators at the Madrid Open won't get the chance to see former world number one Roger Federer in action this week.

The Swiss travelled to the Spanish capital, but has pulled out of the tournament with a back injury.

However, the 17-time grand slam champion intends to be back for the Rome Masters next week, adding: "I don't want to take any more chances. I'd rather play it safe."

Tat's the problem for Josef

IPC European Championships

Paralympic champion Josef Craig has been disqualified from a race at the IPC European Championships in Madeira for failing to cover up his tattoo of the Olympic rings. 

The British teenager made it through Sunday's first heat of the men's S8 100 metres freestyle but was prevented from competing in the final because the tattoo - on the left side of his chest - breached regulations related to advertising.

An IPC spokesman said: "Body advertising is not allowed in any way whatsoever and that includes the Olympic rings. The athlete did not wear a cover and was therefore disqualified."

Perfect start for Ding

World Championship

Over at the Crucible....

Ding needed a good start and that is just what he gets after some sloppy play from Selby that costs him the first frame of the session. 

A break of 89 for Ding and it is quickly 10-8. He looked on course for the 84th century of the tournament, but went in-off when pocketing the pink.

'Over to you, Tottenham'

Chelsea v Tottenham (20:00 BST)

Match of the Day's Alan Shearer says Leicester have done their bit and it's now over to Tottenham.

Shearer reserved special praise for Foxes keeper Kasper Schmeichel, who - despite watching dad Peter play their many times - was making his first appearance at Old Trafford.

"It will be a very tough game for Mauricio Pochettino's side," added the former England striker.

As you were in League One

Walsall 3-1 Fleetwood

Remember our League One 'ups and downs' earlier? Well, after Fleetwood's loss at Walsall it's as you were...

The hosts' win means Burton Albion are not yet promoted, while Blackpool and Doncaster are hanging on to the League One status.

It does mean Walsall are still in the hunt for automatic promotion, with Tom Bradshaw, Paul Downing and Romaine Sawyers goals doing the job.

Yorkshire's 'passion and pride'

Tour de Yorkshire

Did you make it to Scarborough on Sunday to witness Thomas Voeckler win the Tour de Yorkshire? 

More than two million spectators watched the weekend's event and Frenchman Voeckler said the crowd "makes me want to come back next year".

Christian Prudhomme also enjoyed the reception, adding "the people of Yorkshire have passion and pride".

World Championship final resumes


Ding Junhui and Mark Selby are back on the baize (not literally, of course, that would be frowned upon). 

Selby leads 10-7 at the Crucible, but there's a long way to go yet - it's a best-of-35 affair.

Bayern Munich centre-back Mehdi Benatia has threatened to leave the German club if they sign Mats Hummels from Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich.

"Bayern are negotiating with Hummels. If I should go, then I'll go," a miffed Benatia told Sky Italia.

Hummels, 27, has told Dortmund he wants to leave with a year left on his contract and Bayern have confirmed they are negotiating to bring the Germany star to Munich.  

FA to investigate alleged Millwall fan punch


The FA will investigate reports a Millwall fan punched Oldham Athletic defender Anthony Gerrard on Saturday.

Millwall won 3-0 to secure a League One play-off place, but Gerrard later said on Twitter he was given "a dig" by one of the home supporters.

These Millwall fans are comedy gold! They're very brave in the stands and on here. Behave yourselves
