This week’s roundup also has Anna van Vleuten dusting the competition and Neville Southall ticking off Michael Owen
1) The Premiership returns this weekend with Harlequins aiming to defend the title they won in some style a few months ago. An improbable comeback from 28-0 down against Bristol in last season’s semi-final makes for six minutes of some of the best rugby you’ll see … the 40-38 win against Exeter in the final was none too shabby, either.
2) Tottenham face another London derby this weekend after last Saturday’s defeat by Crystal Palace. Unfortunately for them it’s an even tougher game as they host Thomas Tuchel’s Champions League winners. Back in 2012, Chelsea were 5-1 victors in an FA Cup semi-final against Spurs, with a vintage Didier Drogba strike opening the scoring. To cheer up Spurs fans, though, here they are beating the Blues 2-1 in 2010 thanks to goals by Gareth Bale and Jermain Defoe, and here’s another Tottenham win over Chelsea in the Premier League: 3-1 in 2018.
