The Sport Matrix: Monday 5 May 2014

Bridge stalemate pleases neither side

Chelsea were frustrated by Norwich City in a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge yesterday, a result which did neither side any favours. The hosts remained one point off the top of the table, whereas Norwich were left with a very minimal chance of avoiding relegation.

Mayweather works to maintain record

Floyd Mayweather was given a workout by Marcos Maidana before retaining his unbeaten record on points and taking the WBA welterweight title. Amir Khan earlier impressed in his welterweight debut, flooring  Luis Collazo three times.

Giroud gives fans happy send-off

Olivier Giroud’s early goal was enough for Arsenal to see off West Bromwich Albion 1-0 at the Emirates as the club celebrated securing another season of Champions League football. The forward headed home Santi Cazorla’s corner after 14 minutes to settle the encounter.

Evans shines to keep Quins in hunt

Tom Guest scored a late try to keep Harlequins’ play-off hopes alive as they won 30-29 at Exeter in the Premiership yesterday. Quins overcame a 16-5 interval deficit with Nick Evans contributing 15 points, including one of the visitors’ four tries.

Rodgers retains title hopes for Reds

Brendan Rodgers maintains Liverpool can win the Premier League, claiming Manchester City may struggle to complete a winning run. “City need to win all their games,” he said. “They will have won five in a row and have only done that once this season. It is certainly not over.”

Murray open to McEnroe as coach

Andy Murray has refused to rule out taking on John McEnroe as coach, claiming the American has “a lot to offer”. “When someone like that shows an interest, you have to take that into consideration,” the Scot said. “It is interesting.”

Opinion: Sam Wallace

Former England midfielder Joe Cole has made some bad decisions about the clubs he has joined since Chelsea but there must be a manager somewhere with the imagination to find a place for him.

Arsenal recover to make semi-final

Arsenal Ladies reached the FA Cup semi-finals after coming from behind to beat Birmingham 2-1 yesterday. Remi Allen’s opener was levelled by Kelly Smith and Freda Ayisi hit the winner. Elsewhere, Manchester City beat Everton 1-0 in the Continental Cup.

Fabulous Froome retains Tour title

Chris Froome successfully defended his Tour de Romandie title after winning the final stage in Switzerland. Victory in the 11.5-mile time trial gave him overall victory ahead of Simon Spilak for Team Sky’s third consecutive win in the race.
