Soccer – Ivanovic keen to impress Conte

Branislav Ivanovic hopes that his recent displays for Serbia can help to propel him back into Antonio Conte’s first-team plans at Chelsea. The 32-year-old has not started a Premier League match since September but impressed in both of his country’s games this month – against Wales and Ukraine. Chelsea have won their last five league matches, keeping clean sheets in all of them, but Ivanovic thinks he still has a role to play at Stamford Bridge.

Soccer – Fit-again Gomes set to face Foxes

Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes has made a good recovery from a knee injury and is set to start against Leicester City on Saturday. The 35-year-old former Tottenham shot-stopper sustained the injury in the 6-1 defeat at Liverpool at Anfield a fortnight ago and had to be replaced by Costel Pantilimon. However, Hornets head coach Walter Mazzarri said: “Gomes should be back and we are happy about this.” Christian Kabasele will not be fit enough to play against last season’s Premier League champions though after he picked up a thigh problem while on international duty with Belgium.

Soccer – Alderweireld still not ready to return

Formula 1 – Red Bulls to pressurise Rosberg

Nico Rosberg has been warned that Red Bull duo Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo will not allow him an easy ride in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Rosberg holds a 12-point lead over Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton heading into the final race of the season, with the German knowing that a top-three finish at Yas Marina will be enough to be crowned Formula 1 world champion. However, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has warned Rosberg that he will face a massive challenge from both Verstappen and Ricciardo – who have pushed the standings leaders all the way for second place in each of the last three races

Soccer – Guardiola switches to league focus

Head coach Pep Guardiola wants to see his Manchester City side focus on their Premier League title challenge after making sure of a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League. A 1-1 draw in Germany against Borussia Monchengladbach was enough to ensure that the Citizens finish in second place in Group C, although Barcelona made sure of top spot with a 2-0 win at Celtic. However, Guardiola, whose side are 15/8 with bet365 to be crowned champions of England this season, was not too concerned by that situation, instead looking to the positive that qualification had been secured with a game to spare.

Soccer – Wenger waits on Sanchez verdict

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has his fingers crossed that star striker Alexis Sanchez has not sustained too serious a hamstring injury. The 27-year-old was forced to miss the World Cup qualifier against Colombia, but Chile are still holding out hope that Sanchez will recover in time to feature against Uruguay on Tuesday. However, Wenger does not want to see any risks taken with his player, as he fears Sanchez could then face a significant period of time out of action.
