What's trending: Liverpool knocked out by West Ham, ticket price row goes on
Here are the top stories from Wednesday:
LIVERPOOL: Jurgen Klopp said the door had been "wide open" for Liverpool and hailed his young players' bravery after they exited the FA Cup as Angelo Ogbonna's 121st-minute goal sent West Ham through 2-1 victors.
- When the dust settles on the result, Jurgen Klopp will see plenty to be positive about after his much-changed lineup performed very well against West Ham's strongest side, writes David Usher.
- Liverpool owner Fenway Sports Group has apologised "for the distress caused by our ticket pricing plan for the 2016-17 season" and announced general admission ticket prices at Anfield will be frozen for next season.
- Liverpool will be glad to finally see the back of West Ham. The Hammers have bagged three wins and a draw vs. the Reds this season, writes Peter Thorne.
CHELSEA: Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri says there is "nothing'' to reports linking him with Chelsea. Speaking at a youth tournament on Tuesday, he told Sky Italia: "There's nothing to it. I cannot either confirm or deny something that doesn't exist."
ARSENAL: Gary Lineker believes Arsenal "nicked the wrong scout" in taking Ben Wrigglesworth from Leicester City to become their new first-team video scout. "Steve Walsh is the guy who found these players and bought them in. I know when he found Mahrez he was sent to watch someone else and came back with Mahrez. He's done a brilliant job and that's been the large key to Leicester's success."
TOTTENHAM: Harry Kane believes Tottenham's improvement this season is because the club is rid of its "bad eggs." Mauricio Pochettino remodelled his squad, who are currently second in the table, into a leaner, fitter and younger group.
- If offered, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino should pick football over finance and reject the Manchester United job, writes Dan Kilpatrick.
PREMIER LEAGUE: Football Supporters' Federation chairman Malcolm Clarke believes stadiums will be filled with "foreign tourists with half-and-half scarves taking selfies of being in an English ground" if ticket prices are allowed to rise even further.
NEWCASTLE: Newcastle have announced a price freeze on adult season tickets next season with those for under-18s being reduced. Newcastle say there is a risk "generations of supporters" could be lost if the cost of attending matches rises too high.
BUNDESLIGA: Borussia Dortmund fans protested high ticket prices by throwing tennis balls on the pitch during their side's 3-1 win at Stuttgart in the DFB Pokal on Tuesday. Many of Dortmund's travelling supporters stayed away from the stand for the first 20 minutes in response to a €70 ticket price set by the hosts.
PSG: The commuter who was racially abused and blocked by Chelsea supporters from boarding a Paris Metro train has accepted an invitation from Paris Saint-Germain to watch the London club's Champions League last-16 first leg at Parc des Princes next week.
- Things are not all rosy in Paris for PSG, who are riddled with issues ahead of their Champions League last 16 tie vs. Chelsea, writes Julien Laurens.
