It took the 35-year-old's goals tally to 28 for the campaign and led the brash striker to liken himself to Brad Pitt's title character from the film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, who ages in reverse. We gave away a poor goal and I thought we needed to get a lot closer.

In midweek, we were reliably informed by some bloke on Twitter that a discussion between Antonio Conte and some of his staff during the dying minutes of Chelsea's win over Manchester City was all about Tottenham. They left us in a position of "yes" or "no".

Marcus Rashford scores Manchester United's third goal against Sunderland during their EPL match at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland yesterday.

Sunderland are to appeal the red card shown to Sebastian Larsson during Sunday's defeat to Manchester United, according to Sky sources.

The decision is likely to be seen as a snub by the Russians, who on Friday were said to still be preparing for the visit. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson insisted, however, that defeating ISIL in Syria remained Washington's top priority.

Robles made amends for his error with a superb diving save, three minutes from the end, to keep out a fine header from Leicester sub Leonardo Ulloa. We controlled the game well.

"The Europa League is the competition we can still win, so when Sergio plays in the Europa League and when we are giving him this confidence to play, it's because we know that his answer is positive and today he looked like he was really comfortable". "Myself and Ross (Barkley) have played together many times".

He has created five more chances than Lukaku and produced seven more key passes than the Belgium global, which equates to 1.43 key passes for game for Belotti, and just 1.06 for Lukaku.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the Assad regime must be brought into line after last week's chemical gas attack. Haley said "getting Assad out is not the only priority" and that countering Iran's influence in Syria was another.
