'The best is yet to come!': Reiss Nelson making his mark in the Bundesliga

Today 18:09 GMT

While Jadon Sancho has made the headlines with Borussia Dortmund, Reiss Nelson's development at Hoffenheim has been no less impressive.

"Reiss Nelson the match-winner," headlined local paper Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung. "Nelson ends Nagelsmann's losing run," added tabloid BILD after three straight defeats to RB Leipzig, Manchester City and Eintracht Frankfurt. It was good of Nelson to repay to the favor; after all, 31-year-old Julian Nagelsmann was one of the main reasons the 18-year-old Londoner decided to come on loan to Hoffenheim in the first place.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin sparks Everton’s late demolition of Crystal Palace

Today 18:10 GMT

Everton left it late, very late, to record their third consecutive Premier League win under Marco Silva and leave Crystal Palace with an all-too-familiar sense of regret.

The substitutes Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun struck twice in the final three minutes at Goodison Park to punish Roy Hodgson’s profligate side. Only Huddersfield Town have scored fewer goals than Palace in the Premier League this season and it was not difficult to locate the root of their problems on Hodgson’s return to Merseyside.

Sri Lanka v England: Tourists seal series with win in rain-hit fourth ODI

Saturday 13:35 GMT

The weather and a limited Sri Lanka side have ensured this series has not offered the world number one ODI side many tests to their status as favourites to win the World Cup on home soil next year.

Sri Lanka have not won a home one-day series since beating West Indies in 2015 and never looked like breaking that streak against a superior England outfit. Dinesh Chandimal's side did post a total that could have proved challenging though, with Dickwella - who smashed 36 from 20 balls in the rain-shortened third ODI - adapting a more circumspect approach in overcast conditions.

In retirement Scholes has become a devastatingly good misery-pundit on BT Sport, a brilliantly salty and astringent presence, as English as winter rain, with special responsibility for the struggles of Manchester United.

Northern Irish women still facing difficult choice over abortion

Saturday 05:09 GMT

Women in Northern Ireland who want an abortion are caught between the costs, stigma and complexities of travelling to Great Britain and the risk of prosecution if they access pills online to take at home, according to new research.

A policy change by the UK government last year allowed women from Northern Ireland to have a free abortion in England on the NHS, but it has not solved the problems they face, says a study based on a series of interviews published in a medical journal.
