• Liverpool pricked by Rose thorn in Tottenham draw

    Left-back Danny Rose's 72nd-minute equaliser earned Tottenham Hotspur a 1-1 draw with Liverpool in a hard-fought Premier League encounter at White Hart Lane on Saturday. James Milner gave Liverpool a deserved lead with a penalty shortly before half-time, but Spurs got their reward for a spell of sustained second-half pressure when Rose drilled home the equaliser. The England full-back's strike means he has already matched his tally from last season and it preserved Spurs' unbeaten record following their draw at Everton and victory over Crystal Palace.

  • Rosberg beats Verstappen to Belgian pole

    Nico Rosberg boosted his hopes of regaining control of the world championship on Saturday when he claimed pole position for Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix. Taking full advantage of his championship-leading Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton's multiple grid penalties, that have consigned him to the back of the grid, the 31-year-old German delivered a well-judged performance to complete a hat-trick of poles. It was Rosberg's fifth pole this season and the 28th of his career – and gives him a great chance to reduce, or even overhaul, Hamilton's 19-point lead in the drivers' title race.
