Hernandez takes United through as Suarez returns

A goal from Javier Hernandez early in the second half was enough to give Manchester United a 1-0 victory over Liverpool last night in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

The Mexico international showed great movement to guide in Wayne Rooney's corner 39 seconds after half-time to take the gloss off Luis Suarez's return from a 10-game ban. The Liverpool forward hit the crossbar with a free-kick in the final 20 minutes but United held on.

"The noise from the fans was amazing," United defender Chris Smalling said. "There was a lot of doubt after the weekend [United losing 4-1 at Manchester City] so we had to go out and get a performance and we did. It felt like it was end to end for pretty much 90 minutes. A real cup tie." MORE

Wallabies facing nightmare future

Australia's problems have increased after Jake White walked out on leading provincial team the Brumbies after missing out on the Wallaby coaching job. The country's recent defeats also raise the growing possibility they could fail to reach the next World Cup's knockout stages. MORE

Game tainted as Lee pays the price

The figures involved in the Stephen Lee match-fixing case amount to as much as £105,000, almost £42,000 finding its way into a bank account in the name of Lee's wife. Even with the potential to earn twice that annually, the lure was too much. MORE

Lawrie baffled at Seve absentees

Paul Lawrie is baffled at the number of big-name absentees from next week's Seve Trophy, with Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Lee Westwood all opting out. "It's important," he said. "You're representing what [Seve] stood for. Most of us are playing because of what he did." MORE
