Daily Telegraph - Thu Nov 15 6:01 PM Given that Eddie Jones is using Saturday's match against Japan as a trial for England's pool schedule for next year's World Cup, it is no surprise that he has made 11 changes to his starting line-up, including a debut for Joe Cokanasiga, who received and more »
Daily Telegraph - Thu Nov 15 4:25 PM Given the amount of column inches devoted to the Football Association's decision to allow Wayne Rooney to return to the England fold for one last time, it seems amazing that there has been no confirmation of when England's record goalscorer will be and more »

Given that a significant amount of Arsenal’s second-year scholars are still featuring frequently for the U18s this season it has been difficult for some of the first-years to force their way into the side in the early stages of the campaign. Gradually, though, the process is starting to occur and...

If Salomón Rondón can stay fit Newcastle United will surely stay up. Given the No 9’s chequered medical history that admittedly remains quite a big if, but on this compellingly persuasive evidence, Rondón’s highly disruptive penalty-area presence is capable of camouflaging all manner of deficienc...

Winger Stubbed His Toe But Penalty Given Last night’s 6-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk was marred slightly by the rather dubious penalty awarded top Manchester City .

I don't want to go off on a Top Red rant but we've shown a really strong ability to come back from being a goal down over recent games. Given what happened tonight, which is fecking brilliant obviously, I'm started to wonder if Mourinho and the team deserve more praise? They've clearly got it in...

Given the excellent recent form, I think it’s fair to say City’s business in the transfer market in 2018 has been really rather impressive.

KIERAN GILL: Given the choice between Aston Villa or Monaco, Thierry Henry figured it was a no-brainer. A month later, it has been more Va Va Gloom than Va Va Voom for this French footballing legend.

Daily Telegraph - Sun Nov 4 1:55 AM It should have been taken a sign of how things had changed, and not for the better: the House of Commons to which I was first elected in 2001 was the first since a short period in 1945 that did not include a former prime minister. Both Ted Heath and

Daily Telegraph - Tue Oct 30 7:19 PM Given that London is Europe's most visited city, with around 20 million international visitors, what proportion of the city's GDP do you think comes from tourism? The answer, to me at least, came as a surprise. According to a new report from the World and more »
