England coach Eddie Jones must change his attitude if the Red Rose are to rise to the heights previously ascended under the Australian, says Austin Healy.

FOOTBALL

Chelsea are much more used to sitting at Europe’s top table as opposed to dining with the likes of PAOK – and they looked as if they didn’t really have an appetite in Greece as they laboured to an opening 1-0 Europa League victory.

Los Angeles Rams jump to number one in NFL power rankings heading into Week 3

With Week 2 of the new NFL season in the books, our USA sports expert Jay Asser is starting to get a clearer look at the league.

After holding the top spot last week, the New England Patriots were knocked off their perch by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game.
