Harry Maguire: Leicester City boss Claude Puel rules out selling defender

Leicester City manager Claude Puel says England defender Harry Maguire is not for sale despite reported interest from a number of top-six clubs. Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham have all been linked with the 25-year-old summer signing from Hull. But Puel says he wants to "build his team" around the centre-half, who made his England debut against Lithuania in October. "He is a valuable player for us. It is just speculation," said Puel.

Accrington Stanley clinched promotion to League One for the first time in their history as striker Billy Kee's double saw them beat Yeovil Town.

Kee, the top scorer in League Two, headed in Sean McConville's corner to open the scoring and he added a second with a rebound just moments later. John Coleman's side - unbeaten in 14 matches - also extended their lead at the top of the table to four points. Kee almost had a hat-trick late on, but volleyed in to the side-netting. 'Who are they?' How 'minnows' Accrington conquered League Two A minimum of two wins from their remaining four games would guarantee Stanley the League Two title after 12 consecutive seasons in the division. Third-tier football will be the highest level Stanley have played at since their reformation in 1968, having resigned from the English Football League for financial reasons in 1962. After returning in 2006, the Crown Ground club lost League Two play-off semi-finals in 2011 and 2016 - both under Coleman - yet they finished in the bottom half of the table in all their other seasons since returning. However Coleman, who returned for his second spell in charge in 2014, has now overseen arguably the greatest triumph in the Lancashire outfit's history. He has guided them to 16 wins in their past 19 games to leapfrog all their promotion rivals, with three Stanley players included in the PFA League Two Team of the Year. Jubilant fans invaded the pitch at the full-time whistle, after a game the hosts controlled and could have won by more, McConville having a lob that hit the bar midway through the second half. Visitors Yeovil, who were second best amid the party atmosphere, remain nine points clear of the relegation zone, with three matches to play. Accrington boss John Coleman said: "It's been a tough season. We lost one of our apprentices Jordan Moseley, one of our former directors John Demaine died last week and we wouldn't be where we are now without him. "And it's my late dad's 91st birthday and you would like to think he played a part. "You can't help but get emotional but it's all about the players. They were fantastic against Yeovil, it was 2-0 but it could have been 16-0 as we really turned on the style in the second half. "The fans have come out in their numbers and I am delighted for them. The whole team and staff have worked so hard and we have got our rewards. We will give it a good go in League One, it is a massive achievement. It's absolutely fantastic."

Sergio Aguero: Manchester City striker 'to miss a month' after keyhole surgery on knee

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is expected to be out for a month after undergoing keyhole surgery on his knee. The Argentine, 29, has been troubled by the problem for the past five weeks and missed Saturday's 3-1 win at Tottenham. "Recovering from an arthroscopy on my knee. Fully motivated to get back soon to the field," Aguero wrote on Twitter. It is anticipated that Aguero, who has not started a game since City's victory over Chelsea on 4 March, will be fit for Argentina's World Cup campaign. He returned to action as a late substitute in the derby defeat to Manchester United on 7 April, and again appeared as a substitute in the Champions League quarter-final second-leg loss to Liverpool three days later. The knee problem subsequently ruled him out of the victory over Spurs at Wembley. Speaking before that match, City boss Pep Guardiola said he was unsure when Aguero would be fit again. "I don't know if he will be ready for Swansea [on April 22]. Hopefully for the last games, if we need him, and especially for the World Cup."

Sam Allardyce: Everton send survey to fans asking to rate manager

Everton have sent a survey to a group of supporters asking them to rate manager Sam Allardyce's performance on a scale of zero to 10. The survey is part of an exercise with a fan panel designed to discover how connected they feel to the club. Fans are asked to rate the statement: "I have a high level of trust in the current manager and coaching staff... e.g. in making the right decisions to get the best out of the team." Allardyce, 63, took charge in November. He has guided Everton to ninth in the Premier League after taking 27 points from 20 games, but there has been growing discontent among some supporters over what they perceive as a negative playing style. Allardyce suffered abuse from supporters during and after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Swansea City, having been subjected to similar treatment after the defeat at Burnley in early March.

Brighton edged closer to Premier League safety with a hard-earned point against a much-changed Tottenham side.

Harry Kane's 26th league goal of the season, following Gaetan Bong's error, put Spurs in sight of an 11th away win. But Brighton were behind for just two minutes before Pascal Gross levelled with an excellent penalty after Serge Aurier had caught Jose Izquierdo. The Seagulls are without a win in six games but are eight points above the relegation zone with four games left. Spurs almost won it through an own goal when Shane Duffy deflected Christian Eriksen's cross a fraction wide.

Dejan Lovren: Liverpool defender shouted at team-mates to 'wake up' at half-time

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren says he found himself shouting at his team-mates to "wake up" as they trailed Manchester City 1-0 in the Champions League quarter-final second leg. Liverpool responded to win 2-1 at Etihad Stadium and 5-1 on aggregate. But Lovren, who hopes to avoid Real Madrid in the last four, says it fell to him to remind the Reds at half-time there was a semi-final place at stake. "To be honest I was shouting a bit at half-time," said the 28-year-old. "I told the lads to wake up because it was not good enough and I said we were sitting too deep. "I needed to remind the guys that we had 50 minutes to be in the semi-finals of the Champions League and we needed to give more."

Premier League: Tottenham goal at Stoke awarded to Harry Kane

Tottenham's Harry Kane has been awarded Spurs' second goal in Saturday's 2-1 win at Stoke after a successful appeal.

England striker Kane's tally for the season is now 25 - four behind Liverpool's Mohamed Salah. The Premier League said a three-person panel agreed that "the final touch on the ball belonged to Kane".
