When Arsenal's league campaign closed with a win over Everton, Wenger avoided the lap of honour, staying close to the tunnel, for fear that his presence would divide opinion. "Honestly I think the goal after three minutes, in this way, I think this goal [should have been] disallowed". Linekar said during BBC's coverage of the cup final: "They had them with them and completely forgot and will be wearing them in the second half".

Fortunately for him, Blaise Matuidi's pressure from a PSG corner in the first of two added injury-time minutes and saw Cissokho nudge the ball into his own net at the death, extending Angers' agonising wait for a major trophy. PSG continued to dominate proceedings and Cavani should perhaps have scored the opener with five minutes left, shrugging off Ismael Traore after being sent through by Di Maria, only to then fire a low shot just wide of the target.

Irving's handle is probably better than anyone else in the National Basketball Association and even when his shot isn't going, he can penetrate through the first layer of the defense and get something going for the Cavs. A solid second half would have sent the Celtics back to MA with the series even at 2, and with two of the last three games in Boston, the Celtics had to feel good about their chances of shocking the world.

Not without good reason. On Thursday he was even better, posting a career high in strikeouts and throwing first-pitch strikes to 21 of 27 hitters he faced.

Then Albert Almora Jr. reached over his head for a terrific leaping catch on Belt's drive to centre. Berrios (3-0) allowed three runs on four hits with seven strikeouts over 6-1/3 innings.

Because I feel this club has special values, and we have shown it again today. It was Arsene Wenger's 7th FA Cup win, a record, and after all the bullshit he has been through and the abuse he has taken from his own fans over the past few months, it was his turn to celebrate.

Alexis Sanchez's early opener for Arsenal , allowed to stand despite an apparent handball, was cancelled out by Diego Costa , only for Ramsey to reply immediately with the second FA Cup-winning goal of his career.

It was the fourth win in a row for the Blue Jays (22-26) and the fourth consecutive loss for the Rangers (24-25). One batter before he exited, Griffin allowed a grand slam to Toronto second baseman Devon Travis . "He was painting down and away to lefties especially", Rangers outfielder Jared Hoying said. Granted, having threats in the lineup from 1-9 is a great thing, but Travis' ability to get on base before the likes of Donaldson, Jose Bautista and more hit the plate, is worth ...

A Juve win against Real Madrid in Cardiff on June 3 would see the Italian giants face United in the UEFA Super Cup and Pogba welcomed that potential clash.

Seamer Mark Wood bowled a sensational last over for England to beat top-ranked South Africa by two runs and win their one-day global series on Sunday (NZ time). Faf du Plessis tried to steer off-side runs off Liam Plunkett (three for 64) but managed only to edge behind. Before the over there's a lengthy delay while the umpires examine the ball and have a chat with AB de Villiers , who doesn't seem to be liking what he's hearing, but they eventually play on with the same nugget.

Jordan scored 5,987 in his post-season career in 179 games from 1985-2003. Let's be real, the Cavs will make it to the NBA Finals to face the Golden State Warriors . I know the Warriors are motivated for this series and Draymond said he wants to kill the Cavs after the way past year ended.

The club are conscious, however, that they will need to find a way to honour the Ivorian should an agreement not be reached and Tuesday's game proves to be his last at the Etihad. The 46-year old manager dismissed Arsene Wenger's accusation that his team is on a holiday.

The former Southampton youngster has recovered from a hamstring problem in time to be included in the cup final squad. "Our start wasn't good enough", the Chelsea boss said.

I can't remember the last time both McLarens out-qualified Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes on pace in Formula One, but that's exactly what happened at Monaco . He qualified 14th, an eye-watering 1.9 seconds off the pace, but will be bumped up one spot with Jenson Button serving a 15-place grid penalty on his return to the sport.

South Africa , on the other hand, have little time to put behind the loss and make a comeback to keep the series alive.
