Weekend Live! (28-30 March)

  • [yellow-card]ARSENAL 0-1 MAN CITY
    Silly challenge from Silva. The ball bounces up and Arteta is always going to hoof it clear. Silva follows through on him and it's a stone-wall booking.
    3/29/2014 6:16:16 PM
  • [half-time]ARSENAL 0-1 MAN CITY
    The differences between the two sides are physicality and purpose. City have plenty of both. The Gunners are lacking.

  • GARY NEVILLE'S VIEW [garyneville]
    Gary Neville says Arsenal's pretty football isn't achieving enough against the power of Manchester City.
    Arsenal are all too nice. There's no cutting edge.

    3/29/2014 6:19:44 PM
  • As if to prove Gary's point, here are the half-time stats - which show that Arsenal are yet to have a shot on target.

  • [sundaysupplement] UEFA's plans to introduce the new Nations League in international football is yet to convince Martin Lipton:
    I wonder really whether this is all about the marginalisation of international football. I think it would take away some of the buzz away from international football and I don't like it in that respect. I can understand where it comes from but some of the parts of it, like the winners of group four such as possibly Andorra could qualify for the European Championships, I don't agree with.

  • [sundaysupplement] Sam Wallace interviewed Spurs boss Tim Sherwood this week and gives us an idea of his vision for the future:
    He loves it and I think he's still very hopeful that he'll go into next season. He's got plans. He knows what he wants to do in the summer and he believes there are a lot of good young players at Spurs, some at the club and some out on loan. He wants to build something with an identity.

  • [sundaysupplement] Liverpool can move top of the Premier League this afternoon if they beat Tottenham at Anfield and Sam Wallace thinks they have a great chance of lifting the title in May:
    They're playing with remarkable freedom. In some respects, it's been that long since they last won the title, that unless you're Steven Gerrard who's been there for over 15 years, the players that haven't been there too long don't seem to be feeling the pressure.

    3/30/2014 9:26:35 AM
  • [liverpool] Steven Gerrard admits he has had 'title flashes' as Liverpool chase Premier League glory, but knows they have little margin for error ahead of their huge tie against Tottenham:
    Don't get me wrong, winning the title flashes in and out of my mind from time to time but I think with experience I have learned this can be a ruthless league and one bad performance or one bad error could lead to a draw or a defeat. We have to remain focused and just think about the next game. The message is that we have won nothing yet.

  • [goalsonsunday] That's all for this morning's Sunday Supplement but Goals on Sunday is now underway on Sky Sports 1 where Rangers boss Ally McCoist joins Ben Shephard and Chris Kamara in the studio. They'll be looking back at yesterday's action as well as discussing McCoist's career and we'll bring you all the best lines again. You can also get involved, sending any questions or thoughts to @GoalsOnSunday using the #GOS hashtag.

  • [goalsonsunday] Ally McCoist watched his Rangers side, who have already claimed the Scottish League One title, win 2-1 at Arbroath yesterday and he is hopeful of maintaining their unbeaten run: 
    We've probably dipped a little bit in terms of our overall football in the last few games. The boys this season have been really consistent with their league results. It'd be great (to remain unbeaten). All of our games our like cup finals, the opposition raise their games.

    3/30/2014 9:38:59 AM
  • [chriskamara] Chris Kamara was at St Mary's yesterday as Southampton crushed Newcastle with a 4-0 win with goals from England trio Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Jay Rodriguez:
    They've got to go to the World Cup because they've got legs - Lallana and Rodriguez. The thing about Lambert as well is that he's the focal point. They need someone like him who doesn't run around the whole time and can keep his position and hold defenders off.

  • [goalsonsunday] Following Stoke's 1-0 win over Hull City yesterday, Ally McCoist praised the job Mark Hughes has done at the Britannia:
    I like what Mark Hughes has done at Stoke as well as what Steve Bruce has done with Hull. Mark's come in, settled the side down and their performances of late have been very, very good. If you've got goals in your team - stating the obvious - you always have a chance. I think Mark knows they are always capable of getting goals.

    3/30/2014 9:52:14 AM
  • [liverpool] Brendan Rodgers has urged Anfield to roar Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table when Tottenham Hotspur visit on Sunday afternoon:
    Anfield is a real cauldron of an arena and with that army of supporters behind us, it gives us huge motivation to go on and win the game. Hopefully, we get that support again. We've got to take full advantage of that. It was amazing the other night, driving into the stadium and seeing all the flags, the banners and the vocal support.

    3/30/2014 9:57:39 AM
  • [goalsonsunday] Following yesterday's 2-0 win at fellow Premier League hopefuls Burnley, Leicester created a 15-point cushion in the automatic promotion places. Chris Kamara says:
    They've more or less guaranteed promotion and this could have guaranteed them the championship as well. Nigel Pearson won't admit it at this moment in time because you have to wait until it happens.
    While Ally McCoist believes they will need to invest over the summer in order to handle the step up:
    I think any team going up would need to strengthen going into the top-flight.

  • [sundaysupplement] From this morning's Sunday Supplement, the panel discuss Chelsea's need to sign a striker in the summer:

    3/30/2014 10:06:28 AM
  • [goalsonsunday] Ally McCoist reflects upon his time in charge at Rangers so far and the turmoil they have been through:
    It's the dream job, perhaps just not at the right time. I'm the luckiest man alive to manage the club I've supported since I was a boy. It's been a turbulent few years, even prior to the club going into administration. You could see it coming, the signs weren't good around the place. It means so much to so many people. We've got an unbelievably loyal support - 72,000 season tickets in the last two years.

    3/30/2014 10:09:45 AM
  • [everton] Everton will wait until the summer before addressing the issue of loan star Romelu Lukaku's future. The striker is set to return to Chelsea following his season-long spell at Goodison but Roberto Martinez is hopeful of extending his deal:
    If next season is only domestic competitions then that is one approach, if it is Europe it is a completely different approach and it will depend a lot on the three parties' conversation. The parent club has a big say and the player will have a big say. All I'm concentrating on is that the loan has been a big success. That is down to the eight games (remaining) to fulfill the promise.

    3/30/2014 10:18:25 AM
  • [goalsonsunday] Ally McCoist believes that it takes a certain kind of player to perform for Rangers due to the huge expectations:
    The lads coming from the likes of Motherwell and Hearts - they've all played in the top-flight but they've not played for Rangers and it is completely different. I firmly believe it's easier playing against Rangers than it is playing for Rangers because of the different levels of pressure.

  • FULHAM 1-2 EVERTON [save]
    Little more than five minutes for Fulham to find an equaliser most wouldn't begrudge but they need Stockdale to make another excellent save here from Naismith. It looks ominous for the hosts when Lukaku rolls into his path but the keeper darts off his line and makes himself big.
    3/30/2014 2:12:46 PM
  • GOAL! FULHAM 1-3 EVERTON (Naismith 87) [goal]
    And that's that. Fulham should deal with a loose ball a lot better but credit to the tenacity of Baines, who prods into the path of Naismith. Simple finish.
    3/30/2014 2:13:40 PM
  • FULHAM 1-3 EVERTON [post]
    Fulham's legs have gone and Naismith almost has a second, striking the base of a post with his low drive. Into added time.
    3/30/2014 2:19:48 PM
  • FULHAM 1-3 EVERTON [full-time]
    It's all over - and is that the case for Fulham's survival bid? Felix Magath wears a world-weary look. His side are five points from safety - effectively six, given their goal difference - with just six games to go. Everton, who were galvanised by Steven Naismith, are now four points behind Arsenal with a game in hand. Those two meet meet Sunday...

  • 3/30/2014 2:30:01 PM
    Tottenham desperately need inspiration from somewhere if they are get back into this. On cue, Bentaleb has a dig from 30 yards but Mignolet is right behind it.
    3/30/2014 3:39:34 PM
    Better from Tottenham. They make inroads down the left and Soldado's curling shot from the angle forces Mignolet to punch to safety
    3/30/2014 3:40:59 PM
  • LIVERPOOL 2-0 TOTTENHAM [missed-chance]
    More lax defending from Tottenham. Kaboul gifts the ball to Sterling. His floated cross picks out an unmarked Suarez but Lloris pushes his point-blank header onto the bar.
    3/30/2014 3:44:27 PM
  • LIVERPOOL 2-0 TOTTENHAM [half-time]
    One-way traffic at Anfield. Liverpool well on top against a pedestrian Tottenham thanks to Kaboul's own goal and Suarez's 29th in the league. Join us again for the second period.
    3/30/2014 3:47:49 PM

  • 3/30/2014 3:51:12 PM
  • [betting]SKY BET ODDS
    Can Tim Sherwood inspire his side to a second-half comeback like last weekend? Tottenham are 22/1 to win from here and 10/1 to salvage a point. Bet on Liverpool v Tottenham here.
    3/30/2014 4:02:14 PM
  • LIVERPOOL 2-0 TOTTENHAM [whistle]
    So what have Tottenham got in their locker? Despite their first-half travails, it would just take one goal to create a very different atmosphere here.
    3/30/2014 4:04:07 PM
  • LIVERPOOL 2-0 TOTTENHAM [yellow-card]
    Within 30 seconds, Sigurdsson's in the book for pulling back Coutinho on halfway
    3/30/2014 4:06:01 PM
    Soldado outmuscles Agger down the right but he has no support in the box and the chance is gone. Tottenham's reluctance to commit men forward for fear of being caught on the break is evident.
    3/30/2014 4:13:22 PM
  • GOAL! LIVERPOOL 3-0 TOTTENHAM [goal {Coutinho)]
    Coutinho picks up the ball in midfield, sets off towards goal and arrows a shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards.
    3/30/2014 4:14:22 PM
  • LIVERPOOL 3-0 TOTTENHAM [substition] 
    Lennon and Bentaleb off. Townsend and Dembele on.

    3/30/2014 4:18:43 PM

  • 3/30/2014 4:40:18 PM
    Flannagan slides in - fairly - on Soldado and leaves the Tottenham man in a heap. He needs some treatment but he's okay 
    3/30/2014 4:41:23 PM
  • LIVERPOOL 4-0 TOTTENHAM [substition] 
    Moses comes on as Sterling departs. Game meandering towards a conclusion - and Liverpool marching to the top of the league. 
    3/30/2014 4:42:44 PM
  • LIVERPOOL 4-0 TOTTENHAM [added-minutes]
    Three added minutes here - as the battered Soldado departs on a stretcher to complete a miserable afternoon for Tottenham.
