    MATEO KOVACIC is winning his race to be fit for Saturday's FA Cup Final in a major boost for Chelsea. The Croatian was taken off by stretcher following a brutal tackle by Leeds’ Dan James on Wednesday. 1James' tackle on Kovacic on during the 3-0 loss on WednesdayCredit: Reuters Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel later claimed his key midfielder "needs a miracle" to face Liverpool at Wembley. But the club is now hopeful that Kovacic has escaped serious injury even though James was given a straight red card by referee Anthony Taylor for the lunge at his ankle. It is welcome news as Tuchel’s midfield has been ravaged by injury lately with N’Golo Kante and Jorginho both missing games in recent weeks. Tuchel is hopeful that Kante at least may also be fit but might not be ready to start the game which represents Chelsea’s last chance to win a domestic trophy this season.

    IGLS, Austria (AP) — China won. So did Britain. So did Germany. And with that, the World Cup skeleton circuit had a race unlike any other in its history. Geng Wenqiang gave China its first World Cup skeleton win on Friday — part of a historic three-way tie for the top spot. Geng, Britain’s Matt Weston and Germany’s Christopher Grotheer all finished two runs in 1 minute, 46.04 seconds. There had never been a three-way tie for the win in any World Cup skeleton race since the sport was added to the circuit in 1986. “It’s the best feeling,” Weston said. Weston was Britain’s first World Cup men’s skeleton race winner since Kristian Bromley in January 2008. Grotheer is the two-time defending world champion, though this was only the second World Cup race win of his career. And Geng’s first win came in his 20th career World Cup start, plus ensured that he’ll be considered a medal favorite at the Beijing Olympics in February. The Chinese have never been a major player in the sliding sports, which have traditionally been...
    ARSENAL have been dealt a big injury blow ahead of their crucial Premier League clash against Liverpool. Midfield regular Thomas Partey will not be involved for Ghana against South Africa on Sunday as he's still receiving some treatment at his club. 1Partey has played a key role in Arsenal's surge up the Prem tableCredit: GETTY IMAGES Partey missed the Gunners' 1-0 win over newly promoted Watford last weekend with a thigh strain, and it has potentially thrown an appearance against title hopefuls Liverpool next weekend into doubt. But according to Goal reporter Charles Watts, Arsenal do have some hope he could make the trip to Anfield with their impressive ten-game unbeaten run on the line. Should he miss the game, Ainsley Maitland-Niles could be handed another start in the middle of the park. Mikel Arteta's men will have some hope of getting one over on the Reds though. Liverpool's 25-game unbeaten streak came to an end at the hands of West Ham last time out. David Moyes' high-flying Hammers beat the former Prem and European champions 3-2 at...
    WOLVES winger Francisco Trincao has tested positive for Covid-19 and is in danger of missing his side's trip to Aston Villa on Saturday week. The 21-year-old summer signing from Barcelona is self-isolating after he tested positive, ahead of Portugal's double-header against Qatar and Luxembourg. 1Francisco Trincao has tested positive for Covid-19 and is a doubt for WolvesCredit: Getty Trincao was a late call-up to the Portuguese squad after Benfica's Rafa Silva pulled out.

    Getty Lionel Messi is facing a race against time to be fit for Sunday’s Spanish Super Cup final between Barcelona and Athletic in Seville. The captain was forced to miss Wednesday’s semi-final against Real Sociedad due to injury which Barca won 3-2 on penalties after the game finished level at 1-1 after extra-time.
