  2. 'The importance of fans speaking with one voice'

    Football

    Some reaction from the news we brought you earlier that Premier League tickets for away fans will cost no more than £30.

    Kevin Miles, chief executive of the Football Supporters’ Federation, said: "The FSF is delighted with the announcement of a £30 cap - the FSF has campaigned around the issue of ticket prices along with supporter groups around the country and we're very pleased the voice of fans has been listened to.

    "A maximum price of £30 for away tickets will save a lot of fans a lot of money, and for many will make the difference between attending away games or not.

    "We hope many clubs will also follow the example of Arsenal and reduce away ticket prices for their fans even further. The unanimous support of all top-flight clubs is welcome and shows the importance of fans speaking with one voice."

  3. Dortmund star to Man City?

    Football

    Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel admits he is unsure whether midfielder Ilkay Gundogan will stay at the club following reports linking him with Manchester City. 

    Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf has published a picture of Gundogan's uncle and agent, Ilhan Gundogan, apparently meeting with Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain in Amsterdam. 

    Tuchel, speaking at a press conference to preview his side's Europa League clash with Tottenham, said: "Am I convinced that he will stay? I don't really know. I can only say that once he has actually signed. I know what we can offer him and if that's enough for him to stay then so be it."

  4. 'Hamilton should chance stance on halo

    Formula 1

    Lewis Hamilton has been urged to change his stance on the new 'halo' head protection device by former world champion John Surtees.

    Hamilton described the change as "too drastic" and the "worst-looking" modification in Formula 1 history.

    John Surtees' son Henry died during a Formula Two race in 2009 after being struck on the head by a stray tyre.

    "I suffered the tragedy of losing Henry which certainly could've been prevented by a development like this," he said.

  6. Champions League pain will help United

    Football

    Manchester United defender Chris Smalling says the pain of missing out on Champions League qualification will spur the team on in their Europa League tie against Liverpool. 

    “It was felt personally by us all the first time we didn't qualify for the Champions League,” he said.

    “We’ve still got a lot of games to play in the league, and we have another route in the Europa League to make sure that doesn’t happen again. We’re all striving forward and looking forward to make sure that doesn’t happen for a second time.”

    Snooker

    Former world champion Mark Williams has lost the opening round of the World Grand Prix in Llandudno on home soil to defending champion Judd Trump.

  10. Weather halts Paris-Nice race

    Road Cycling

    Stage three of cycling’s Paris-Nice race was called off due to snowy conditions 97km into the 168km stage between Cusset and Mont-Brouilly.  

    The French rider Alexis Vuillermoz, of the AG2R-Mondiale team, had crashed out of the race at 80km but race organisers had hoped to restart the stage further on, in Villié-Morgon, but that also proved impossible.

    ASO cycling director Christian Prudhomme said "The road was extremely slippery and the safety was no longer guaranteed. We are sorry. That's Paris-Nice. We promise we'll come back to Mont-Brouilly. It's a pity but the riders will start again tomorrow from Julienas."

  11. Jurgen Klopp news conference

    Liverpool v Manchester United (Thursday, 20:05 GMT)

    Now it is Jurgen Klopp's turn to face a question. He says: "Manchester United have won the last four but it means nothing. It would mean more if they had much more quality than us.

    "It's enough of a target to want to go through to the next round without thinking about the final.

    "I don't have a problem with Louis van Gaal but the last thing I want in this game is that he wins.

    "Games like this are the mother of all football games and that's what you want when you are young."

    "Since I've been here I've not won against Manchester United and this is a good chance to put it right. You don't have to be local to realise the significance of this match. In the build-up to the match, you feel the importance."
