With Leicester in town, this was never likely to be a free-scoring occasion. Leicester, of late, do not really do goals, either way. Still this was a match that had seemed likely to showcase the qualities of English football’s top guns Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy. In the end though, as Leicester moved joint-top of the Premier League with a sweaty, thrillingly tight 1-0 win it seemed fitting the dominant presence should be a 31-year-old rumbling buffalo of a central defender who 10 years ago was playing in League One with Nottingham Forest.
Wes Morgan has enjoyed a late-blooming Premier League second life with Leicester. It has been bumpy at times. This season, though, has been a quiet revelation, Morgan evolving towards his current plateau of muscular close-range excellence in a team that plays to his strengths, condensing around him like infantrymen rallying to their standard.

• Mitrovic not concerned by club’s links with other strikers
Newcastle’s Aleksandar Mitrovic is hoping his performance in the 3-3 draw against Manchester United showed he is taking more responsibility since his £13m move from Anderlecht last summer.
Having set up Georginio Wijnaldum for Newcastle’s opening goal in the first half, the Serbia striker won and scored a penalty to make it 2-2 and then had a hand in Paul Dummett’s late equaliser which denied Louis van Gaal’s side victory.Continue reading...
Former world heavyweight champion is itching to return after 1,282 days away and says his bout against Mark de Mori ‘is the start of something amazing’
The staging of the pre-fight press conference in a cinema is probably as box office as this bout will get. Taking his first steps down an uncertain path he hopes will lead to him regaining the world heavyweight crown, David Haye looked in good shape but mildly embarrassed on Wednesday while sitting in front of Screen 5 of Cineworld as he talked up his comeback at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.
