Gerrard spot on to seal Liverpool win

Chico earns draw for Swansea City

Stoke and Swansea played out a 1-1 draw at Britannia Stadium. Peter Crouch’s right-footed strike put Stoke ahead in the 17th minute, before Swansea earned a crucial point when Chico Flores headed home Pablo Hernandez’s cross seven minutes after the interval. MORE

Adebayor double inspires Spurs

Emmanuel Adebayor struck twice as Spurs beat Newcastle 4-0 at St James’ Park. The visitors took the lead through Adebayor’s early effort and, after Paulinho added a second, the Togolese forward struck again before Nacer Chadli completed the scoring. MORE

KP fetches bargain price at IPL auction

Kevin Pietersen’s debut as a freelance Twenty20 player will be for Delhi Daredevils after yesterday’s IPL auction, although the former England batsman’s final price of $1.5m (£880,000) was well down on what was predicted. MORE

‘Tight’ World Cup pick for Lancaster

England head coach Stuart Lancaster admits he will face a selection headache for the World Cup, with players such as Manu Tuilagi still to return from injury. “The reality is that we’ll be making some very tight decisions,” he said. MORE

Maze and Gisin share gold

The women’s downhill skiing gold was shared in Sochi after Slovenia’s Tina Maze and Dominique Gisin of Switzerland finished in a dead heat.  Britain’s Chemmy Alcott finished 19th. MORE

Stephen Brenkley
