Guardiola admits it is difficult to keep unhappy players in the long term Pep Guardiola has hinted at a squad overhaul at Manchester City this summer. City clinched the Premier League title for the third time under the Spaniard, and could cap a memorable season with Champions League glory.

It’s impossible. “In that position, we have to change. We’ll see at the end of the season. We...

premier league, Sports
Said Benrahma cancelled out Danny Welbeck's strike to salvage a point for West Ham United as their hopes of finishing in the top four suffered a major setback at Brighton & Hove Albion.  West Ham looked the likelier scorers in the first half as two Pablo Fornals strikes were blocked and Tomas Soucek worked Robert Sanchez in the Brighton goal.  At the other end Alireza Jahanbakhsh was denied by the legs of Lukasz Fabianski and when he did beat the West Ham goalkeeper on 55 minutes his angled attempt went wide.  With six minutes remaining Welbeck latched on to Percy Tau's through-ball and dinked the ball over the advancing Fabianski to break the deadlock with his 50th Premier League goal. Substitute Benrahma responded with a curling strike in off the post on 8...

INTERNATIONAL, London, premier league
Arsenal went ahead on five minutes when the Gabonese striker mishit his shot and the ball fell invitingly for Mohamed Elneny, who fired in his first PL goal.

premier league, Sports
Leicester City's hopes of strengthening their grip on third spot were frustrated by a resilient display from 10-man Southampton in a 1-1 draw at St Mary's Stadium. Southampton played 80 minutes at a numerical disadvantage following Jannik Vestergaard's 10th-minute red card for denying Jamie Vardy a goalscoring opportunity. James Maddison curled the resulting free-kick narrowly wide as Leicester looked to capitalise. Southampton, however, frustrated the Foxes and restricted them to long-range efforts from Maddison and Youri Tielemans in a goalless opening half. James Ward-Prowse fired Saints 1-0 ahead with a 61st-minute penalty after Kelechi Iheanacho had handled.
