    ALFRE-GO MORELOS

    Alfredo Morelos has revealed he had a heart-to-heart meeting with Steven Gerrard after his hopes of a big money move died.

    The in-demand striker said: “There were many difficulties with Rangers about my departure because proposals came in and the club asked for more money.

    “Then the transfer market closed and I spoke with the manager and said that I was going to focus on the team. The situation got back to normal and I started to raise the level of my game.

    “There are opportunities now for me because I have won the league in Scotland and we are still in the Europa League. If we get through to the next round, we will have the opportunity to play against some very big teams and they will be watching me.

    “One of my big dreams is to play in the English Premier League. It is one of the best leagues in the world and there are a lot of important players and important teams.

    “So if the opportunity presents itself in my career, I am going to take it. It’s a style of football very similar to Scottish football and I would enjoy it.”

    RAM-NO

    Aaron Ramsey will miss Wales’ upcoming World Cup qualifiers with a thigh injury.

    The 30-year-old, who played in Juventus’ Champions League defeat to Porto in midweek, was unavailable for tonight’s Serie A clash with Cagliari.

    Discussing Ramsey in his pre-match press conference, Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo said: “He has physical problems and is unable to get continuity to his performances because he has to stop every two or three games.

    “In the past, he has had major problems that have kept him away from the pitch for months.

    “He is precious because he knows how to make the team play well and he plays well.

    “He has only this physical weakness that forces him to stay out every now and then.”

    FULL-TIME!

    Arsenal 2 – 1 Tottenham

    The Gunners came from behind to claim victory in the North London derby.

    Erik Lamela's world class rabona goal put Spurs ahead before Martin Odegaard equalised just before half time.

    On the hour mark Davinson Sanchez fouled Lacazette in the box and the Frenchman got straight up and slotted the penalty in the bottom right corner.

    Before Lamela went from hero to villain with two quickfire yellow cards to get himself sent off.

    The first was a slide tackle on Thomas Partey and the second was for palming Kieran Tierney in the face.

    Harry Kane hit the post with a free-kick at the death but Arsenal held firm.

    RED CARD!!!

    Erik Lamela is sent-off!

    Arsenal 2 – 1 Tottenham

    Lamela who had just been booked for a slide tackle on Thomas Partey extends his arm to fend off Kieran Tierney and catches him in the face.

    Michael Oliver wasted no time in getting the second yellow out as it looked deliberate and forced and Spurs are down to ten.

    GOOOOOAAAAALLLL – LACAZETTEEEEE!

    Arsenal 2 – 1 Tottenham

    62. Davinson Sanchez slides in on the Frenchman as he scuffs his shot and wipes him out.

    The ref points to the spot and Lacazette gets up to roll it into the bottom right corner.

    Lovely pen.

    MACKEMS BREAK 48-YEAR JINX

    Sunderland 1 – 0 Tranmere

    Sunderland finally broke their Wembley jinx as Lynden Gooch's second-half strike saw them win at the national stadium for the first time since 1973.

    Gooch converted from the edge of the box just before the hour mark and his team held on to lift the 2021 Papa John's EFL Trophy – beating Tranmere 1-0.

    The Mackems had not won at the national stadium since beating Leeds in the 1973 FA Cup final. And although – as boss Lee Johnson put it – 'it's not the biggest trophy' Sunderland fans will be gutted they couldn't be there to see them shake off the Wembley voodoo.

    Prior to match Rovers fans were simply asking the North East side not to batter them considering they're chasing promotion in the league above. But in reality, the League Two side did themselves proud.

    Their five shots on target dwarfed Sunderland's one but Gooch's right-foot effort was the only one that went in and therefore the only one that really mattered.

    There was little to separate the teams in an entertaining contest – but a moment of quality proved decisive in the 57th minute when Aiden McGeady split the Tranmere defence with a through-ball and United States international Gooch finished off the chance.

    HOLY MEL!

    I know people say things like this all the time and people are bored of this phrase.

    But I honestly could watch this Erik Lamela goal over and over and over again.

    Unbelievable.

    HALF-TIME!

    And it's all square at the break in the North London derby.

    Arsenal 1 – 1 Tottenham

    Erik Lamela opened the scoring with an absolutely sumptuous effort before Marin Odegaard level on the stroke of half-time.

    Jamie Redknapp labelled Lamella's rabone effort one of the best goals the Premier League has ever seen.

    AUBA AND OUT

    The North London derby is just underway but the big news is Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is on the bench after being dropped.

    The Gunners captain, 31, has been left on the bench against Tottenham for 'disciplinary reasons' by boss Mikel Arteta.

    Arteta refused to go into any detail about the nature of the disciplinary issue before the game.

    When asked why Aubameyang had been left out, Arteta gave a very short answer.

    He said: "Aubameyang was going to start the game. We had a disciplinary issue.

    "We have drawn the line, we move on, and he is on the bench.

    "We have a process for every game that we have to respect."

    KARANKA GONE

    According to reports, Aitor Karanka is no longer in charge at Birmingham City.

    It is unclear whether he has been sacked or decided to walk away from the Championship strugglers.

    Birmingham are currently fourth bottom in the Championship and two of the sides below them have games in hand.

    The Blues were beaten 3-0 at home to Bristol City yesterday and face a huge battle to avoid relegation.

    FULL TIME: LEICESTER 5-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

    A totally one-sided game comes to an end as Leicester climb up to second after thrashing doomed Sheffield United.

    Kelechi Iheanacho scored a hat-trick for the Foxes with Ayoze Perez also on target.

    The final effort was an own goal by Ethan Ampadu to complete a miserable day for interim boss Paul Heckingbottom.

    I wonder what Chris Wilder is thinking after his former club's capitulation.

    LEICESTER 5-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

    This is turning very ugly for the visitors as Leicester add two more goals.

    First Kelechi Iheanacho fires home again to complete his hat-trick.

    And the Blades barely had time to restart before Jamie Vardy's effort is turned into his own net by Ethan Ampadu.

    This game cannot end soon enough for Sheffield United. Mind you, their fans will probably saying the same thing about the entire season.

    LEICESTER 2-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

    That is surely that as Leicester extend their lead with a superb breakaway goal.

    The ball is played to Ayoze Perez and he drills a low shot into the bottom corner of the net.

    The Foxes are heading up to second while it is more misery for the Blades at the bottom.

    GUNNER GET YA

    We are not too far away from the North London Derby getting underway and Tottenham will be feeling confident about their chances.

    After all, Harry Kane and Gareth Bale boast a superb record against Arsenal.

    Kane has a stunning record of 11 goals against Arsenal in 12 matches.

    And Bale has also enjoyed plenty of success with five goals in ten North London derbies.

    Surely Jose Mourinho will unleash Bale in this afternoon's game as Spurs look to boost their top-four hopes?

    LEICESTER 1-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

    It's taken almost 40 minutes but the breakthrough has come as Leicester take the lead against Sheffield United.

    The Blades had looked relatively comfortable but Jamie Vardy broke clear and played a ball across for Kelechi Iheanacho to tap in from close range.

    What have Sheffield United got in response? They have only scored 16 goals so the odds don't look great for their chances.

    POINT THE FINGER

    Alexandre Lacazette was spotted wearing Mesut Ozil branded merchandise during Gunners training ahead of the North London Derby and has left fans divided.

    Mikel Arteta's side host bitter rivals Tottenham this afternoon in a key clash for both sides.

    But it is Lacazette's attire ahead of the game which has caught the eye of Arsenal fans after he wore an Ozil-branded bandage on his finger.

    Ozil departed the Emirates for Fenerbahce in the January window following a turbulent last 12 months at the club.

    And it is Ozil's tumultuous relationship with the Gunners faithful that has led many of them to question the striker's decision to wear the bandage during training.

    LEICESTER v SHEFFIELD UNITED

    Next up Leicester will bid to strengthen their top-four claims against bottom side Sheffield United.

    The Blades are under new management with Paul Heckingbottom taking over on an interim basis after the departure of Chris Wilder.

    Sheffield United are heading for relegation and not even a shock win this afternoon will be enough.

    But can the visitors dent Brendan Rodgers' side's Champions League hopes?

    FULL TIME: SOUTHAMPTON 1-2 BRIGHTON

    A BIG win for Brighton as they claim their first league win in six matches.

    Graham Potter's side have moved three points clear of the bottom three and jumped above Newcastle in the battle to avoid the drop.

    Brighton opened the scoring through Lewis Dunk's thumping header but Che Adams' strike levelled the match.

    But the Seagulls found another gear and claimed the winner in the 56th minute when Leandro Trossard fired home.

    The Saints could not find an equaliser and it is a huge result for Brighton as they claim a sixth win of the season.
