    Ainsley Maitland-Niles

  3. Kane is quality - Martial


    Anthony Martial

    Manchester United striker Anthony Martial believes Harry Kane has underlined his talent this season and added that Tottenham Hotspur's firepower is why they are second in the Premier League.

    Spurs front man Kane is the division's top goalscorer with 22 strikes, while Martial has eight in his debut season.

    "Kane is a top player and he's also still only young," Martial told MUTV. "He had a great season last year and he's underlined just how good he is this time around. He's a quality player who is very entertaining to watch."

    Let's face it, walking down the street wearing the full kit of your favourite sports team has never been a good look. Until now.

    Leigh Centurions, leaders of rugby league's Championship, have unveiled this glorious ensemble for their 'Summer Bash' fixture against Bradford Bulls on 28 May.

    The design plays on the Roman connotations of the team's name.

  5. Exit rumours untrue - Mancini


    Roberto Mancini

    Inter head coach Roberto Mancini claims rumours linking him with a move away from the club are not true.

    Reports in England and Italy this week have suggested the 51-year-old is ready to walk away from San Siro before the final year of his contract in order to take up a role elsewhere. 

    "I've had no offers from abroad and everything that's been written and said is untrue," said former Manchester City boss Mancini.

  7. Lukaku perfect for Man Utd


    Romelu Lukaku

    Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha believes Everton striker Romelu Lukaku would fit in well at Old Trafford.

    Lukaku, 22, has scored 25 goals in all competitions this season and recently suggested he could leave Goodison Park in the summer to test himself in the Champions League.

    "It's clear that he's among the players who are capable of going to play with the top clubs -- whether it's at Manchester United, who are definitely looking for a striker, or with a club in Spain," Saha told Belgian broadcaster RTBF.

    Louis van Gaal

    "If Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is a man whose job is under threat, he certainly didn't seem it as he faced the media, saying instead Sunday's opponents Tottenham are the ones under pressure as they they chase Leicester at the top. 

    "The Dutchman won't rush captain Wayne Rooney back into the team, and will instead play for the club's under-21s against Middlesbrough on Monday. 

    "Van Gaal also heaped praised on Spurs for their teamwork, and leaders Leicester's players for the way they have taken responsibility this season - something he would clearly like more of from his team. 

    "The only time he was slightly annoyed was by questions about the possibility of a role as technical director with the Dutch FA, which he swatted away."

  9. Shock at Aintree

    Horse Racing

    The 10-1 shot God's Own won the Melling Chase at Aintree after hot favourite Vautour fell.

  11. Man Utd news conference

    Tottenham v Man Utd (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Louis van Gaal and Mauricio Pochettino

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Mauricio Pochettino deserves credit for making a team out of individual players at Sunday's opponents Tottenham.

    He also praised Leicester's players for the way they take responsibility, but refused to confirm whether he was approached by the Dutch FA about a role as technical director.

    Man Utd

    Manchester United may be more accustomed to fighting for the title than battling for a European place, but Louis van Gaal’s side could still have a major say in the title race. They still have leaders Leicester to face, and this weekend go to second placed Tottenham who could be 10 points behind the Foxes by Sunday’s kick-off. 

    United have performed better against sides in the top half of the table this season - losing only once in nine games against teams in the top seven - and have more points against those top sides than anyone else.

    The question for Louis van Gaal is can they continue that against a Spurs side who can ill afford any more slip ups?
