West Brom v Southampton, Brighton v Coventry and more – live!

West Brom’s marking here looks to be utterly atrocious. Southampton FC (@SouthamptonFC) Smart finish, @wesleyhoedt! 😎 #saintsfc pic.twitter.com/0eeikEIp7E February 17, 2018 OFF THE BAR! Nearly a dream debut for Locadia at Brighton as he got on the end of a knock down but he could only smash the ball against the crossbar. Better luck next time. If Pardew wanted to embarrass any of his taxi-stealing stars, he might consider subbing him off for his own amusement. Not that it would really help him today seeing as they are already losing.…

Manchester United news: Real Madrid favourites to sign Marcus Rashford

The arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal has raised doubts about Rashford’s future at Old Trafford while Anthony Martial’s return to form has further limited his opportunities.

A move away from Old Trafford seems unthinkable but BetStars are offering odds of 6/1 that Real Madrid snap up Rashford.  BetStars director of trading Ian Marmion said: “For the last few months…
