Ahead of #CPFC 's game against Chelsea at Selhurst Park tonight, there's a Q&A discussion here (👇) which I'll be overseeing pre-, during and post-match. Please get involved! Right. Off to the Colosseum...

Andy Lonergan was without a club a year ago Now, 12 months and no games on, he has two winner's medals with Jurgen Klopp backing him to receive a third An interview with #LFC 's fourth-choice keeper on a dream year and the role he plays at the champions

He's definitely on a list. Has been for a while. He might be pricey, though.

Not quite sure how #CPFC  failed to equalise in stoppage time, there, after Dann hit the post and Zouma conjured a fine challenge to deny Benteke. Great game. Post-match discussion 👇

This is such bad news for competition. The elite clubs with bigger squads will be rubbing their hands with glee... IFAB set to extend the rule allowing teams to make five substitutions in games across all of next season, by @mjshrimper .

#CPFC  's Roy Hodgson when asked about this idea by @TheAthleticUK  : "It tips the balance to clubs with bigger stronger squads. I was in favour in this period to avoid injuries but looking ahead, 5 subs is not going to be the same advantage for us as the top 6 teams in the country. "

To Tottenham Hotspur the bragging rights and a sense of satisfaction at victory over Arsenal. But, surely, the north London derby should be more than a mid-table squabble over who might stand a slightly better chance of securing a Europa League place.


Raheem Sterling is covering the costs of ex #cpfc  elite development player Damary Dawkins' funeral. The 13-year-old passed away in March from Leukaemia. “Damary was a special young man whotoucheda lotoflives. Positive untiltheveryend,he wasan example to us all.”

Told deal worth initial £20m agreed in principle by #cpfc  and #lfc  for Mamadou Sakho.Could rise to original asking price (£30m) with add-ons

Still no agreement reached between Crystal Palace and Manchester United after further talks over Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Negotiations will continue, I'd imagine, but fee that would be guaranteed to #cpfc  hasn't risen to a level they would consider acceptable as yet.

John Terry confirms post-match he is not having his contract renewed by #CFC . End of an era...

On that evidence, it sort of feels as if Emerson Palmieri has been under-used by #CFC  this season...

Jose Mourinho and Diego Costa screaming at each other as teams retired at break, the manager complaining at forward's lack of anticipation.
