Saints stop Spurs in St Mary's stalemate

Tottenham are out to 2-1 with Betfair to finish in the Premier League’s top four after a 1-1 draw away to Southampton.

Davinson Sanchez’s own goal put Saints in front before Harry Kane equalised for a Spurs side who had drifted pre-match to 5-6 from 4-6 once Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen were declared unfit to feature at St Mary’s.

The point was not enough to move 18-placed Saints, 5-1 to be relegated, out of the bottom three.

Watford have sacked Marco Silva following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Leicester and Javi Gracia is expected to fill the Vicarage Road vacancy.

Bookmakers have suspended betting on former Malaga and Rubin coach Gracia, who was swiftly reported as the man to replace Silva.

The decision to sack Silva came as more of a surprise to bookmakers with the former Hull coach still odds-against with layers to be the next Premier League manager to leave his current position when the announcement was made.

Real Madrid v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Real have won just one of their last four Champions League meetings against English opposition
Expert verdict
Real Madrid have lifted the Champions League in three of the past four seasons but they could struggle to retain their crown against a lively Liverpool. Real have been the dominant force in Europe, with last year’s 4-1 thumping of Juventus in the final in Cardiff showcasing their superiority. However, Zinedine Zidane’s men have not bumped into a front three like the Reds’ often - Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have netted 29 of their 40 Champions League goals this season - and they are vulnerable to the counter-attack.
