Sport in brief: May 13, 2022

MEN’S FOOTBALL: Mark Noble admits there will be tears at his final home match for West Ham, but he insists that, with what is at stake, there will be no room for sentiment.

The Hammers’ club captain will bring the curtain down on his 18-year, one-club career at the end of the season.

Noble hopes to make one more appearance, probably from the bench, in front of home fans at the London Stadium against Manchester City on Sunday.

MEN’S FOOTBALL: Everton boss Frank Lampard is calling for one last push from his players to help them get over the line and secure Premier League football for next season.

Seven points from three games has lifted the Toffees two points clear of the bottom three with three games remaining. Victory against Brentford tomorrow would be enough to keep them in the top division if Leeds lose to Brighton.

MEN’S FOOTBALL: Leeds head coach Jesse Marsch has not ruled out a return to action for Patrick Bamford tomorrow’s home game against Brighton.

Bamford, plagued by successive injuries this season, has been sidelined since March due to a foot injury, but he is hoping to give Leeds’ survival bid a major boost.

Luke Ayling and Dan James are both suspended, but Raphinha and Jack Harrison are available after both were withdrawn due to knocks in the midweek defeat to Chelsea.

MEN’S FOOTBALL: Tottenham striker Harry Kane hailed the 3-0 win over Arsenal as the best night at the club’s new stadium, but he knows it will count for nothing unless they beat Burnley tomorrow.

Spurs now have a chance to climb into fourth place if they can get three points against the Clarets, but that will not be an easy task as they play at noon, leaving them the shortest possible turnaround.
