12:36PM 7 mins Karius has to come off his line to boot a long ball over the top away. West Brom looking to react to that early setback immediately. 12:35PM GOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLL! Ings scores! Boos ring out at the Hawthorns. West Brom 0 - 1 Liverpool (Danny Ings, 4 min) 12:33PM 4 mins Liverpool win a corner. It's cleared, Milner has it wide right and hits a brilliant powerful cross to the corner of the six yard box and it's kept alive. Liverpool are in here! 12:32PM 3 mins Rondon tries to force his way past a defender into the box but the goalkeeper smothers, West Brom instantly fall back into a deep defensive shape behind the halfway line. That's the strategy for the day. Rondon battles with Klavan again, the pair shoving each other as they chase the ball into the channel. Free-kick to Liverpool. 12:30PM KICK OFF west brom vs liverpool kickoff Here we go! Liverpool get the game started. 12:27PM Here come the players! 12:11PM Darren Moore pre-match words "It's been great, we've gotten together as a group and worked hard as a group. there's wonderful belief in each other, everybody's working hard to turn this situation around. we're just working hard, we can't control what's happened in the past. "No (we aren't entertaining thoughts of surviving relegation). It's the next game. The next game is today. There's nothing we can do and we'll put all our efforts into the next game. " 12:10PM Result vs performance One side of the argument says that supporting a club like West Brom means you should accept the players are of a lower quality and to survive in the Premier League they need to play defensive, rigid football and that's that. The other says that even if they lose every game, they'd much prefer the team to have a go, attack and play football. That style is much better to watch but against stronger teams is asking for trouble. Obviously you can have a mix and adapt depending on the opposition, but I know I'd much prefer my team to actually play football. There's a reason Pep Guardiola was able to turn the Barca B team into a machine before he took the big job. There's a reason Ajax were able to win a European cup back in the 90s. There's a reason Alex Ferguson was able to dominate Scottish football with Aberdeen - and even beat Real Madrid. Yeh, sure, it's a different game now, but these things all happened with attacking football. What do you think? 11:52AM A lovely day Credit: PA What a day it is! A fine day for football or sitting in the park listening to music through one of those little bluetooth speakers. I don't want to hear your music! Use headphones! Arrhghgghg. But really, football is the winner today. West Brom aren't relegated (yet) but Liverpool's incredible front three could kill them off today. Will Darren Moore have a cunning plan up his sleeve? I suspect it'll be a 4-5-1 low block looking to deny space in behind and try to hit an unsuspecting, frustrated opposition with a counter-attack or score from a corner. Liverpool might be a little too good for them today. 11:37AM West Brom starting lineup An unchanged XI...#WBALIV#COYB#WBApic.twitter.com/Jtw2IqhuL9— West Bromwich Albion (@WBA) April 21, 2018 11:36AM Liverpool starting lineup Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, with one eye on Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first leg against Roma, has made five changes for the trip to rock-bottom West Brom, including giving a rest to 25-goal forward Roberto Firmino. However, he still fields a strong front line with Mohamed Salah, one of the favourites to be named Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year on Sunday, retaining his place alongside Sadio Mane with Danny Ings replacing Firmino and James Milner in for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in midfield. There are three changes at the back as only Virgil van Dijk keeps his place from last weekend's win over Bournemouth as Ragnar Klavan comes in with Alberto Moreno making his first Premier League start since late November and Joe Gomez back after a month out with an ankle injury.

Daniel Crawford won the BAMMA featherweight title and has been signed with Bellator MMA, making his debut at the fight league's historic '200' event at Wembley on May 25. Why didn't you sign for UFC? “It’s whatever, really. I think people get caught up in the three letters [of UFC]. It’s just about the money to be honest. We’re in this game for a short period of time. Maybe 10 years, if we’re lucky, making money. You’d be an idiot to wait on a promotion rather than take the chance to make a full-time living and the exact same money with another promotion.” How did you get into fight sports? “I was born and bred in Croydon. I started off boxing at 14, did that for four years. I’ve always been a fan of MMA. I always liked watching GSP. It’s kind of funny a boxer watching GSP, but I did. I looked at GSP and thought 'I can do that as well'. There came a point where I was just bored of boxing and decided to take up MMA. I didn’t know how to get into it. I was just at a recreational gym, lifting weights, when I met my wrestling coach Rahim Modarresi. He was a coach at Lions Pride MMA with Jimi Manuwa and that’s where I started.” Daniel Crawford prepares for battle in BAMMA Credit: Telegraph/Telegraph Did you want to make a career of boxing? “Yeah. I was boxing from aged 14 to 18. I always wanted to be a professional fighter, an athlete. I went to uni, tried to do the uni thing and it was not for me. I dropped out, with no money, and decided to go for it. I was studying sports science at St Mary’s in Twickenham. Joshua Buatsi (the British light heavyweight boxer) went there as well. We’d train at the same club together when I was there. I’ve sparred him many times. We were 15, 16 at that age. We had a good few scraps. I got halfway through second year and just thought, 'F this'. I believe in myself, I train the right way and I’ve got the right team around me. I don’t think I’ll go back to studying, but I’ll keep the option open.” Did you box in the amateurs, the ABAs? “I had 24 fights. I was just at the stage where I could have, but I quit. I was still a novice.” Does the boxing background help? “You’re used to punches flying at you. It’s a bit different with four-ounce gloves, but it’s definitely an advantage.” Can you make a name for yourself? “When you dig deep into the sport, you see how much promotion there is and how much money there is to make. This nation is really a fighting nation, I think boxing should be the national sport. That’s what we’re really good at. We’re no good at football, half decent at rugby, but boxing is really where all the superstars are in this country. And are world champions.” Did you have adversity growing up? “Growing up in Croydon, there’s always a bad crowd. When I was much younger I had some problems. Not gang related, but being a bully and stuff. My brother was involved in certain things, you really are surrounded. You have to make a conscious decision whether to be a part of it or not, and I chose not to be. I found boxing early and that’s what I wanted to do my whole life, so I didn’t get involved in anything.” Daniel Crawford relishes Bellator 200 opportunity Credit: Telegraph/Telegraph What did beating Ronnie Mann mean? “I knew that was going to be my coming-out party. I wanted to knock him out and I did knock him out and that’s the statement I wanted to make. I knew that belt was going to be next and I knew it would change my life.” Is your ambition to fight in the USA? “Yeah, my dream is to fight in Las Vegas or something like that, that’s the dream.” Is it a great time to be a featherweight? “It is. I wanted to cement myself as the best in the UK. A lot of those guys haven’t even had five fights. Apart from AJ McKee, they haven’t had five fights yet. I don’t think a fight with Aaron Pico or whoever will happen anytime soon.” Are you in a hurry or prepared to build? “I’m still to see what Bellator has in store for me. I’ve had tough fights my whole career, so it’s nothing new. If they want to build me up, they can build me up. I would like the belt in two years. I’ve seen everyone, I keep my eye on everyone, I know it’s there for the taking. I’m ready to grab it.” What is your motivation for fighting? “I’m exciting. Even when I try not to be, I’m still exciting. My aim in the sport is to build the life I always wanted and be remembered.” Where do you train? “I train in multiple gyms. I train at AEON Brazilian jiu jitsu with Eamonn Madden. I train at Revolution Martial Arts with Steve O’Keefe.” It is a disciplined life to make featherweight? “I guess so. I try to be vegan. I wouldn’t say it’s hard to make weight. I walk around at 74 kilos. So it’s not too hard. I don’t know what other featherweights walk around at, but I’ve got it down to a fine science over the years. A lot of fighters are rushing to fight, but there is a lot to learn. If you look at my career, I mostly fight about twice a year and I think that’s a benefit for a young fighter. To have long gaps between fights so I can improve and be a totally different fighter next time.” What do you do for fun? “Just chilling. I don’t really do much. I kind of just live the life by training. Apart from chilling with my girlfriend and friends, I have a chilled lifestyle.”

You have to make a conscious decision whether to be a part of it or not, and I chose not to be. I found boxing early and that’s what I wanted to do my whole life, so I didn’t get involved in anything.” Daniel Crawford relishes Bellator 200 opportunity Credit: Telegraph/Telegraph What did beating Ronnie Mann mean? “I knew that was going to be my coming-out party. I wanted to knock him out and I did knock him out and that’s the statement I wanted to make. I knew that belt was going to be next and I knew it would change my life.” Is your ambition to fight in the USA? “Yeah, my dream is to fight in Las Vegas or something like that, that’s the dream.” Is it a great time to be a featherweight? “It is. I wanted to cement myself as the best in the UK. A lot of those guys haven’t even had five fights. Apart from AJ McKee, they haven’t had five fights yet. I don’t think a fight with Aaron Pico or whoever will happen anytime soon.” Are you in a hurry or prepared to build? “I’m still to see what Bellator has in store for me. I’ve had tough fights my whole career, so it’s nothing new. If they want to build me up, they can build me up. I would like the belt in two years. I’ve seen everyone, I keep my eye on everyone, I know it’s there for the taking. I’m ready to grab it.” What is your motivation for fighting? “I’m exciting. Even when I try not to be, I’m still exciting. My aim in the sport is to build the life I always wanted and be remembered.” Where do you train? “I train in multiple gyms. I train at AEON Brazilian jiu jitsu with Eamonn Madden. I train at Revolution Martial Arts with Steve O’Keefe.” It is a disciplined life to make featherweight? “I guess so. I try to be vegan. I wouldn’t say it’s hard to make weight. I walk around at 74 kilos. So it’s not too hard. I don’t know what other featherweights walk around at, but I’ve got it down to a fine science over the years. A lot of fighters are rushing to fight, but there is a lot to learn. If you look at my career, I mostly fight about twice a year and I think that’s a benefit for a young fighter. To have long gaps between fights so I can improve and be a totally different fighter next time.” What do you do for fun? “Just chilling. I don’t really do much. I kind of just live the life by training. Apart from chilling with my girlfriend and friends, I have a chilled lifestyle.”

Arsene Wenger's decision to leave Arsenal has seen Patrick Vieira named as a possible replacement, but the coach claims he is happy in MLS.
What is it? Ordinarily, it would just be any other Premier League match, albeit a London derby. But this game has taken on new significance as it is the first match since Friday's shock announcement that Arsene Wenger is leaving Arsenal at the end of the season. Before Wenger's plan to leave, it was expected that The Emirates would be half empty - a sign of protest against Wenger by disenchanted supporters. That won't be the case any more... expect the stadium to be heaving! When is it? Tomorrow! Sunday, April 22. What time is kick-off? 1.30pm. What TV channel is it on? All the live action is on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League from 12.30pm. Or you can watch highlights on Match of the Day on BBC 2 at 10.30pm.

The midfielder missed last weekend's defeat at Newcastle with an ankle injury that could again leave him on the sidelines against David Moyes' men, but Aaron Ramsey is available after suffering a deep gash to his calf against CSKA Moscow on April 12. Manager Arsene Wenger has promised to name a strong side despite the upcoming Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid, but Henrikh Mkhitaryan (knee) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) remain out. Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Holding, Mustafi, Chambers, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Nelson, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Xhaka, Willock, Wilshere, Ramsey, Ozil, Iwobi, Welbeck, Lacazette, Nketiah, Aubameyang.

Former striker Ian Wright has claimed in The Sun that Arsene Wenger was sacked and does not believe it is in his character to walk away: "Arsene Wenger is a man of principle, honesty and integrity - that is why I am convinced he has been sacked and not resigned. "For all the vitriol and abuse thrown at him, Arsene has never been a man to walk out before the end of a contract. "It is a sad situation that it's come to this and I don't suppose we will ever find out who is responsible, because they will hide behind each other. "One day he is doing a press conference with no hint of this, the next he's gone. It doesn't add up. "But Arsene can go with his head high. That's why, whatever the results, it is imperative he gets the send-off a true Arsenal and football legend deserves. We all owe him so much." ----- David Moyes believes whoever steps in to replace Arsene Wenger will have a tough job on his hands: "It's never easy when you follow great managers at great clubs. It'll be tough for whoever takes the (Arsenal) job. "He's been a great competitor, a terrific manager. One of the best managers that the Premier League has seen. "Real football people appreciate what he's done. He's dedicated to his job, he's been dedicated to his sport and he's a real proper football man."
