LiveScore Daily is here to deliver all the big talking points from the world of football throughout the day. Keep refreshing this page for the latest stories in bite-sized chunks.

Price rise

Liverpool are raising raise ticket prices for the first time in nine years but have kept increases to 2%.

Junior and local general sale tickets will remain at £9 per ticket, while the majority of general admissions will see a small rise.

But no more than £17 will be added to the price of a season ticket, with the club stating the move is due to rising costs. 

Consultation over the potential impact of the new prices on fans was held with the LFC Supporters Board, who opposed the move. 

Next season will see the opening of the new Anfield Road Stand, boosting capacity by 7,000 to 61,000. 

The revamped stadium will provide an extra 1,000 season tickets, around 3,000 more general admission seats and increase the number of accessible wheelchair bays to 263.

Back in business

Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy is back in full training with Graham Potter's squad. 

Mendy, 31, has not featured for the Blues since before the 2022 World Cup after undergoing finger surgery in early January. 

The Senegal international has made just nine Premier League appearances this season. 

Good enough

Patrick Vieira will not allow Crystal Palace to throw in the towel
Patrick Vieira will not allow Crystal Palace to throw in the towel

Patrick Vieira is convinced Crystal Palace are good enough to save their season — despite a run of one win in 13 Premier League games. 

The Eagles travel to rivals Brighton tomorrow night sitting three points clear of the relegation zone and without so much as a shot on target in their last three defeats. 

Yet better results before the World Cup have kept Palace out of immediate danger and they head to the South Coast 12th in the table. 

A defiant Vieira said: "I am convinced with the way we are working, I am convinced about myself as a manager, I am convinced with the players I am working with every day.

"For me, it is all about improving the squad, trying to find the right combinations to create those chances and to score those goals. We will put our heads down and keep fighting. 

"I'm feeling the pressure like other managers in the table. This is part of the game. The table doesn't lie. 

"We need to win games, play in a better way and score goals. I believe we have the quality to improve our game."

Gunning for next season

Edu has revealed Arsenal are already putting plans in place for this summer's transfer window. 

The Gunners hold a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League after last weekend's 3-0 win at Fulham. 

January recruit Leonardo Trossard, who signed after Chelsea pipped the North Londoners to Ukraine winger Mykhailo Mudryk, set up all three goals to continue his fine start under Mikel Arteta. 

Arsenal's swoop for Trossard, 28, was widely praised and their sporting director insisted being "well prepared" was key. 

He said: "It has already started because you know what is happening in the market, so everybody is working and doing stuff

"You have to plan. When we get to the summer, we are well prepared. 

"With the transfer window, it makes me feel really comfortable in how I prepare myself and how we prepare ourselves as a club to face those challenges. 

"In the Premier League, [there are] a lot of clubs, a lot of good managers. The competition is high but as soon as you prepare well then you feel comfortable. 

"We went into the winter period really well prepared and then we started to make some great decisions and important decisions. 

"So far, it is helping the team to perform well so that's good, that's good for everyone."

Proud to be herself

Manchester United and England Ella Toone star loves the fact she can look however she wants despite her increased profile. 

Some Women's Super League stars, including Aston Villa's Alisha Lehmann, have spoken about how they feel judged more on their appearance than their talent with a ball at their feet.  

But Toone, who admitted she was "gutted" not to be wearing her eyelash extensions when she scored the opener in England's Euro 2022 final win over Germany, is taking the extra attention in her stride. 

The United forward, 23, told BBC Sport: "I like that young girls can now look up to women like us. 

"I love getting my lashes done, my nails done. I always say you feel good, you look good, you play good. 

"I can still go out there and play football. There should be no stigma around the way you look and how you dress.

"Football is always first and I want to be remembered as a good footballer. If people connect with me away from football, that's OK too."

Transfer embargo

Huddersfield have been placed under a transfer embargo by the Football League.

The Terriers, who have declined to comment, are the second Championship club after leaders Burnley to be punished for late submission of their accounts.

It has been reported that the Yorkshire outfit, who have won just one of their last 12 league matches, are the subject of takeover interest from two Dutch groups and an American consortium. 

Veteran boss Neil Warnock returned for a second spell in charge last month following the sacking of Mark Fotheringham. 

Warnock, 74, won his first match back in the Terriers' dugout 2-1 against Birmingham but they have taken only one point from their following four games.

Going into tomorrow's visit from promotion-chasing Norwich, Huddersfield sit 23rd in the table on 32 points.
