The Morning Score: Tuesday

Here’s everything you need to know this morning, except for what’s inside Michael Noonan’s briefcase.

1. #PREMIER LEAGUE Clint Dempsey scored the only goal as Fulham pulled off a shock 1-0 win over ten-man Liverpool at Craven Cottage.

Reds midfielder Jay Spearing was sent off for dangerous play on 72 minutes and is likely to face a three-game ban, while striker Luis Suarez could be in trouble with the FA after he was caught making an offensive gesture towards the Fulham fans.

2. #COROFIN GAA Corofin of Galway have said that they intend to appeal the €5,100 fine they were hit with following the Connacht Club Senior Football Final.

Referee Liam Devanney and his umpires had to be escorted from the pitch when they were confronted by a crowd of angry Corofin supporters after the 0-11 to 0-10 defeat against St Brigid’s Roscommon.

3. #RACE TO DUBAI Rory McIlroy will rest up in an attempt to conserve his energy ahead of this weekend’s season finale at the Dubai World Championship.

McIlroy revealed yesterday that he has been in contact with doctors to see if a recent viral infection which was causing him fatigue has cleared up completely.

4. #CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Chelsea are on the brink of Champions League elimination as they prepare for their final group game this evening.

Andre Villas-Boas’s side need either a win or a clean sheet against Valencia in London tonight to guarantee their progress to the last 16.

Arsenal, who already have top spot in Group F wrapped up, travel to Olympiakos for a game which the hosts must win to have any chance of qualifying.

We’ll have all of the action in our Champions League liveblog tonight.

5. #SNOOKER Mark Allen stirred up controversy at the UK Championships yesterday when he called for World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn to be replaced before he destroys the sport.

Allen took exception to the shortened format of the tournament’s opening round, which has been reduced from 17 frames to 11, saying that Hearn was in danger of turning snooker into a rowdy, drink-fuelled spectacle like darts.
