'It's necessary that justice is achieved'

Paris St Germain v Chelsea (19:45 GMT)

The man who was racially abused on the Paris Metro last year by Chelsea fans will attend tonight's game as a guest of Paris St Germain. Souleymane Sylle has thanked the French club for their support but still remains disappointed in communication from Chelsea.

'Absolutely zero chance'

New Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson says it will soon be "impossible" for lower-league clubs to reach the Premier League because of parachute payments.

Clubs relegated from the Premier League will receive at least £64m over three years from next season.

Teams who spend only one season in the top tier will be given about £51m.

"Looking at a League One team now, if they don't get into the Premier League within the next five years there'll be absolutely zero chance," said Johnson.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea will be using Champions League tales of past to inspire a push for glory this year according to the London Evening Standard. 

John Obi Mikel says winning the competition in 2012 can help Chelsea in their bid for Europe's most coveted prize.

Meanwhile Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger wants to use Arsenal's 2011 win over Barcelona as inspiration for their knockout game next week. 

Head to Head

Paris St Germain v Chelsea (19:45 GMT)

This is the fourth Champions League tie between the two sides, their third in a row. They met in the group stages in 2004, the quarter-finals in 2014 and the round of 16 last year. Chelsea hold a slender advantage...

Father's cancer fears over 3G pitches


A former NHS boss wants the government to review the use of 3G pitches after claiming rubber pellets on the surface contributed to his son's cancer.

Nigel Maguire says son Lewis, 18, has Hodgkin lymphoma after being exposed to the 'crumb rubber' on the surface which gives it more bounce.

Pellets, often made from used car tyres, can contain toxic chemicals.

The Football Association says there are 500 3G pitches in England and added it was "aware of concerns".

For PSG there is positives all round as top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the man who won this tie for them last year, Thiago Silva, before return. 

However, the French champions are without Ivory Coast right-back Serge Aurier, who has been suspended by the club for making homophobic remarks about manager Laurent Blanc.

Derby ask United to foot repair bill

Derby are in discussions with Manchester United about the cost of repairs after a large number of seats were damaged by visiting supporters during the FA Cup clash between the two clubs last month.

The Guardian reports that the Rams have informed United about up to 300 seats which were vandalised and will request that the relevant repairs, which will run into thousands of pounds, are paid for.

The Premier League giants brought 5,460 fans to Derby for the fourth round tie on 29 January 29, with the damage discovered the next day.

Untouchable O'Sullivan

If you wanted to watch Ronnie O'Sullivan in action today I am afraid you are out of luck.

The Rocket, as previously advertised, has absolutely trounced China's Tian Pengfei, winning 4-0 in an unbelievably rapid 38 minutes.

O'Sullivan had breaks of 110, 90, 112 and 102. Pengfei only had one chance at the table and looked absolutely shell-shocked at the end.

Reckon Ronnie was wound up by the criticism he got over the 147 that wasn't? Very possibly. Immense performance from one of the best players the game has ever seen.

Home and away

Paris St Germain v Chelsea (19:45 GMT)

Away goals have determined the winner in the last two years between these clubs

They always say home advantage is crucial, writes BBC Sport's Mike Minay, but not in this fixture. Chelsea won courtesy Eden Hazard's penalty in the Parc des Princes back in 2014 - they lost the game 3-1, but a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge was enough to see them through. 

And then last year, the sides drew 1-1 in Paris, but back at Stamford Bridge Thaigo Silva's extra time equaliser for 2-2 in the 114th minute saw the French side progress. 

Big night ahead

Champions League

Right then, you might not have noticed but there's a rather big match kicking-off in a few hours time.

It is the return of the Champions League and it's the exciting bit - the knockout stages.

There are two games on ... Benfica hosting Zenit St Petersburg and - the one we're really interested in - Guus Hiddink's Chelsea travelling to French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

Serena Williams has withdrawn from her second consecutive tournament, after announcing she will miss next week's Qatar Open because of the flu.

Ronnie on fire

Ronnie O'Sullivan is in action at the Welsh Open - and he's started with a bang.

The Rocket has lodged a 110 break to take the opening frame against China's Tian Pengfei.

He looks in superb, aggressive form, perhaps a result of the flak he's got since deliberately not going for a 147 break in the opening round because the £10,000 prize money for a maximum wasn't good enough.

Although there are plenty of Premier League clubs involved in the FA Cup fifth round this weekend, those not involved have opted for training grounds elsewhere. Stoke and Sunderland are off to Dubai, although the Stoke Sentinel report manager Mark Hughes says it's "no jolly". Norwich are only down the road in Abu Dhabi and Newcastle are off to La Manga. Liverpool go to Augsburg- but that's for their Europa League match on Thursday. And Aston Villa, Leicester, Southampton and Swansea will remain in the UK.
