Fernando Llorente's goal, bundled in from a corner and confirmed by VAR 17 minutes from time, gave Mauricio Pochettino's side victory on away goals on a night of tension, attacking quality and defensive frailty that ended City and Pep Guardiola's quest for a historic quadruple of Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup.

Gasol glad to be part of Raptors’ playoff run

Liverpool show resilience and sense of purpose in putting out Porto

Today 18:11 GMT

Then Liverpool resisted, which they often do, and they defended which they do too, a team with a resilience and a powerful sense of purpose.

Today 18:11 GMT

Remarkably Porto had looked capable of capitalising on a sluggish Liverpool start until Mane's goal swung the momentum of the second leg back in the visitors' favour.

Mane, Salah and Firmino were all scorers when Liverpool thrashed Porto 5-0 in their last-16 tie at this venue in February 2018. And like in that game, the Reds' attacking triumvirate were again on the mark in another emphatic win that was underpinned by the clinical nature of their finishing.

Burn This review – Adam Driver ignites patchy Broadway revival

Today 12:40 GMT

Set alight by a beautiful, unpredictable performance from Adam Driver (you’d call it a star-maker, but Driver is already a star), the play is a mishmash of absurdities, contrivances and what-did-he-just-says?

A standout performance from the brooding actor is the main selling point of an 80s-set comedy drama that fails to match him. A small play about big words – sex, death, fate, love – Lanford Wilson’s Burn This has barged in on Broadway again.
