2. Mourinho Tale.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has refused to commit his long-term future at Old Trafford, saying he is focused on improving the team and winning the Premier League title before the end of his three-year contract.
The 54-year-old Portuguese is nearing the halfway point of his deal and guided United to the League Cup and Europa League titles in his first season.

3. Return of Benteke.
Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke is fit after recovering from a knee injury, but midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be assessed before Saturday’s game against Everton due to a back problem, manager Roy Hodgson said on Thursday.
RH: We're assessing Ruben, that's the main thing. He didn't train today. But it's a back spasm – so there's a hope that will get better. Christian Benteke trained in the week. We've not seen PvA, Mutch or Lee back out.#CPFC 🦅 #CRYEVE pic.twitter.com/t5nkKWEY2P

10. Oh ! Italy.
Italy were so sure of qualifying for World Cup 2018 that they had even booked hotel stay in Russia, the host country. However, Italy shockingly did not qualify for the World Cup for the first time in sixty years.
The Italian FA confirmed the accommodation prior to their 1-0 loss to Sweden in the play-off. With preferred residences already taken by major countries, the Denmark FA plan to step in and make use of Italy’s pre-booked accommodation in Russia.
