U.S. women's national team to appeal pay claims after working conditions settlement

Judge R. Gary Klausner of the United States District Court for the Central District of California last year threw out the players' claims that they were underpaid compared with the men's national team and weeks later...

Premier League Talking Points
Premier League Talking Points

Back in 2011-12, Manchester United held an eight-point advantage over second-placed Manchester City with six games to go, but with Sergio Aguero's 94th-minute intervention in the final game of the season, City completed a dramatic title turnaround. City's shock 2-1 defeat to Leeds United on Saturday, coupled with Manchester United's 3-1 success at Tottenham Hotspur, means that should United win their game in hand, it will be roles reversed from 2011-12, but with an eight point gap, six to play. Hopes of an equally dramatic turnaround are slim, however.

Saturday's 'Clasico' certainly lived up to its billing as Real Madrid edged Barcelona 2-1 in torrential rain with a potent mix of quality and good fortune which bodes well for their chances of finishing first in a remarkably tight title race. Real were missing key players and lost another in Lucas Vazquez during the game but went ahead with a sublime goal by Karim Benzema before doubling their advantage with a scrappy, deflected free kick from Toni Kroos. They rode their luck too as Barca hit the woodwork twice and had two penalty appeals turned down, but Real were still worthy winners and are only one point behind leaders Atletico Madrid and one ahead of third-placed Barca with eight...
