Nadal will potentially meet Dimitrov in the semi-finals, and the third seed will prove a hard challenge, particularly if can produce in clutch moments as he did Sunday.

Guardiola, though, has no intention of trying to sign another out-and-out striker, saying Raheem Sterling can move in from the wing if needed, as he did when City won 2-1 at Manchester United in December. "I think him and Marcus [Rashford] have both played on that left side and both have chipped in with goals and assists, and it's great for us that we have such great attacking flair".
Minnesota was outshot 26-24 for the game but had a 7-4 shot advantage in the final period. Even with the momentum of a ranked win on their side, the Huskers have a tough test ahead against the Buckeyes.

The win sends the Eagles to Super Bowl LII to face off against the New England Patriots , the team who bested them last time they reached the big dance in 2004. The turnover sparked the Eagles as they took a 21-7 lead when Jeffery caught a 53-yard touchdown pass from Foles to cap a seven-play, 76-yard drive.
Foles was helped greatly by the Eagles' domination on defense and a spectacular weaving 50-yard interception return TD by Patrick Robinson .

And remember, the Eagles did this without the guy who likely would have been the NFL's Most Valuable Player, quarterback Carson Wentz , if he hadn't suffered a season-ending knee injury. Halapoulivaati Vaitai has struggled at times while filling in for Peters, but the second-year player from TCU kept Minnesota's sack leader at bay. Of course, it helped that the Vikings picked the absolutely worst game to reveal every wart and deficiency they had.
It counts after fixture 38. The Catalan is still preaching caution, especially after Liverpool inflicted City's first league defeat of the season just last week.

That is according to Italian reporter Tancredi Palmeri. Palmieri would add to boss Antonio Conte's left-back and left-wing back options, as Spaniard Marcos Alonso now has very little competition in those positions at the club.

The most hotly anticipated match of the men's tournament so far lived up to its billing, and Dimitrov won three tie-breaks to clinch a 7-6 (7/3) 7-6 (7/4) 4-6 7-6 (7/4) victory. "I started later than usually (knee soreness pre-season), one match like this probably helps because that's confidence for myself, knowing that I can resist nearly four hours on the court, playing at the good intensity, so quarterfinals already, that's great news, I'm very happy for that".

One game in Houston and wins in the season series doesn't make the Rockets the new league favorite - despite what some will lead you to believe in the coming days. They'll never admit to it, but when you're dispatching challengers with the ease Golden State was, it's hard to not let that get to your head. The Rockets opened strong, as Harden drained three threes in the first two minutes (in just his second game back from injury) and Paul dictated play effectively and had his three-ball ...

They first played each other in 2005. That's why the players get frustrated with the whole grand slam situation because we don't have a seat at the table. The injury was a fresh concern for the 12-time Grand Slam champion, whose ranking has slipped to 14 after an inactive second half of 2017.

Nacho Monreal , Alex Iwobi , Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette all found the net inside the opening 22 minutes in the side's Premier League clash with Palace at the Emirates.
