    KYLLING TIME

    Kylian Mbappe claims it would be 'stupid' for him to make a decision over his future based on Paris Saint-Germain's win over Barcelona.

    He said: "The PSG shirt is one that I cherish and carry in my heart.

    “My future? It would be stupid to decide my future based on just one game.

    "It’s something to reflect on for the long term.

    "I’ve always said that I’m happy here and games like that make you very happy."

    ALL TIME HIGH

    Marcus Rashford will grace the front cover of Time magazine's March edition after being named among the 'Next 100 Most Influential People'.

    Lewis Hamilton penned the intro, writing: “In 2020, Marcus Rashford took his many talents beyond the football field – where he is a star player for Man Utd and England’s national team – to respond to a national crisis: child hunger.

    “‘I know what it feels like to be hungry,' he wrote last June as part of a campaign that succeeded in pushing the government to provide meals for students in need during summer vacation.

    "By standing up for the most vulnerable in our society, and using his platform and influence to create positive change, Marcus inspired countless others to join him on this mission and cemented his status as a role model.

    "In a year that showed us the power of working together toward a common goal, he was a galvanising force behind uniting people across the UK in the effort to ensure that no child goes hungry.

    "His determination, resilience and persistence have been truly inspiring. I cannot wait to see how he continues this important work."

    TEAM NEWS

    Charlie Taylor is back in the Burnley side for tonight's 6pm Premier League clash with Fulham.

    The Clarets are 16th in the table and sit eight points ahead of Scott Parker's men.

    A win for Burnley would be huge, putting considerable daylight between themselves and the drop zone.

    But 18th-place Fulham have named an unchanged side from the 2-0 win at Everton on Sunday, with new striker Josh Maja looking to add to his Goodison Park brace.

    "If he had responsibility in one or another goal we conceded recently, he's still the same goalkeeper.

    “He's my No1 choice and he has all my trust and my confidence.”

    BLUE BLOW

    Chelsea missed the chance to sign Kylian Mbappe when he was 13 over worries about his DEFENDING.

    Former scout Serge Boga revealed: "He was very skilful, but in England they want to see the player track back and be a hard worker.

    "At the time, he wasn't a hard worker, defensively he wasn't there yet.

    "When he got the ball, he was unbelievable, but without the ball, he didn't work a lot.

    "Chelsea wanted to see him again to see how he could improve on this – I think that's why they asked him back.

    "He did skilful things and dribbled well, so maybe the things they wanted to see in the second trial was improved work on the defensive side."

    STRIKE OUT

    Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called on his strikers to up their game.

    Solskjaer said: “We are the top scorers in the league, but our forwards have not scored as much as we would have liked.

    “In a way that’s a big positive because as we go into the final stretch of the season because if we can get them firing again it will give us another edge in our game.

    “We have not been at our best for the last four or five games and we are waiting for them to show what they are showing in training.

    “They are working hard. Maybe the form is not the best but that will come, that is the positive thing.”

    He told BT Sport: "I think other teams who are looking at them won't be too carried away with the way Liverpool played today because they've still going to get chances.

    WAITING NEYM

    Neymar is facing a two-game ban for slamming the penalty decision given to Barcelona on Tuesday night.

    The injured Brazilian star could be made to explain his tweets during the 4-1 win for his PSG side.

    Neymar tweeted: “Joke that penalty,” accompanied by laughing emojis after Frenkie de Jong was awarded a spot-kick.

    The tweet was quickly spotted by fans, who shared it on social media – but it wasn’t live for long, with Neymar deleting it.

    And Uefa could act with a ban of up to two games for the 29-year-old.

    The UEFA disciplinary code stops players from 'insults or other conduct that violates the basic rules of conduct'.

    Neymar was given a three-game ban in March 2019 for insulting match officials, but it was reduced to two by CAS.

    CARM-AGE

    Sticking with United and they reportedly face a transfer battle with Real Madrid for Braga’s £36m-rated defender David Carmo as the Spanish giants look for a Sergio Ramos replacement.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have been tracking the 21-year-old star this season, having watched his excellent performances in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.

    Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof were heavily criticised for their performance in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at strugglers West Brom, with pundits once again claiming Solskjaer needs reinforcements at centre back.

    But now Real are heading to the front of the queue for Carmo, with the La Liga side’s president Florentino Perez friends with his Braga counterpart, Antonio Salvador, according to AS.

    AL ABOARD

    Chelsea's secret transfer weapon is at it again – with Blues defender Antonio Rudiger admitting he is trying to lure Bayern Munich’s David Alaba to Stamford Bridge.

    He was branded ‘agent Rudiger’ by fans after admitting he chatted to Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to help secure their moves in the summer – with Alaba his latest target.

    The Bayern star has confirmed he is leaving the Allianz Arena after 11 years this summer with Real Madrid favourites to secure his signature.

    Alaba wants an eye-watering £400,000-a-week at his new club after growing frustrated with the German champions’ low-ball offers to stay with Real Madrid favourites to sign the free agent.

    But Rudiger told Bild he has already been in contact with the Austrian as he plots his next move, while also revealing he is ready to chat to Jerome Boateng and Niklas Sule if moves for them materialise.

    JUDGE & JURY

    Bit more breaking news…

    Referee Darren Drysdale has apologised for his 'unprofessional manner' after he SQUARED UP to Ipswich Town star Alan Judge.

    We shared earlier the shocking incident after Judge was booked for diving inside the area on 90 minutes in his team's clash against Northampton.

    Now in a statement released by the PGMOL, who represent the referees, Drysdale has issued a grovelling apology.

    The 49-year-old said: "I fully understand that it is important to maintain our composure throughout the game and always engage with players in a professional manner.

    "I'm sorry that I did not do that last night and I can only apologise to Alan and Ipswich Town."

    The FA have also confirmed they are investigating the incident.

    DIM VIEW

    Dimitar Berbatov believes Manchester United are OUT of the title race – and fears they could even miss out on the top four.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are seven points behind league leaders Manchester City – who have a game in hand.

    The former Old Trafford star told Betfair: "You see what happens when you don't win games against the smaller teams?

    "Sheffield United and West Brom were two matches that United were expected to take all the points from, but they weren't concentrated enough and now there is no point talking about their title chances.

    "Sometimes people talk about records against the top four teams, but it is equally as important to beat the teams in the bottom four.

    "City are seven points ahead with a game in hand, and with the performances that thy have shown recently I think it will be impossible for them to lose it, and at this moment the title is theirs.

    "It just goes to show that it really pays when you are inconsistent."

    'FEEL PERSONALLY LET DOWN'

    Gerrard continued: "We'll certainly move forward from it. I think we're at a real critical stage in terms of the games coming up and where we are as a club.

    "It won't affect us as a group. I've been absolutely delighted with the group in terms of their application.

    "I feel personally let down by recent events, but I'm trying to move forward and focus on the important things which is to prepare the team for a huge game against Antwerp.
