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.

Panic stations

Jamie Carragher believes Nottingham Forest and Leeds fans should be worried after Everton and Leicester played out a pulsating 2-2 draw last night.

The 19th-placed Toffees still sit one point behind their three Premier League relegation rivals with four games remaining but put in a spirited display at the King Power Stadium.

Jordan Pickford saved a James Maddison penalty in first-half stoppage time before Alex Iwobi's equaliser earned Sean Dyche's side a point that ex-Liverpool defender Carragher felt they richly deserved.

He explained: "It feels like a better point for Everton. They were by far the better team. 

"I actually think Everton's performance will worry Leeds and Nottingham Forest. If Everton can continue performing like that, they will get out of trouble.

"I think if you were watching that as a Forest or Leeds player or supporter, you'd be worried.

"The big thing for Everton is they've got two more away games out of the next three and they’ve won one away game all season. That's a huge problem. And the home game is against Man City. 

"But I've never felt Everton would go down at any stage really. I just look at the form that Leeds are in."

The Whites, who have shipped 18 goals during their current five-game winless run, are on the verge of axing boss Javi Gracia according to various reports.

Pep talk

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has warned his in-form squad against complacency when West Ham visit the Etihad tomorrow night.

City made it eight straight Premier League wins against Fulham last weekend and have emphatically wrestled back control of the title race from long-time favourites Arsenal.

However, Guardiola is not taking anything for granted against a Hammers side who have underperformed versus expectations this term.

The Spaniard told reporters at his pre-match press conference: "West Ham maybe didn't do in the Premier League this season like they have for the past two seasons.

"But David Moyes has been exceptional and that doesn't mean the quality isn't there. At set-pieces they are maybe one of the best, they scored three goals against Crystal Palace like that. 

"I don't have doubts that in one game anything can happen. That's why we have to be absolutely ready."

Tough test

Sarina Wiegman will face her home country in the first Women's Nations League

England have been drawn alongside the Netherlands, Belgium and neighbours Scotland in League A1 of the inaugural Women's Nations League.

The competition — which has been a success in the men's international sphere — kicks off in September, with the four Group A winners then facing off in the finals next February.

It means Lionesses boss Sarina Wiegman faces a reunion with her home nation and a first meeting with the Scots since the 2019 World Cup, when England prevailed 2-1.

Wales are in League A3 alongside Germany, Denmark and Iceland, while the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are together in League B1 with Hungary and Albania.

Jill to win

Wolfsburg midfielder Jill Roord is convinced she and her team-mates can conquer Barcelona to become queens of Europe next month.

The German champions booked their place in the Women's Champions League final after overcoming Arsenal 3-2 after extra time at the Emirates last night — netting a winner with less than two minutes remaining.

Dutch ace Roord, 26, bagged against her former club early in the contest and was quick to issue a rallying call at full-time ahead of a mouth-watering showdown with the Spanish giants.

Roord said: "It's going to be a tough challenge, but also it's just one game. It's not like the semi-finals with two games.

"It'll be one game, 90 minutes hopefully! And anything can happen. We have to be brave, we have nothing to lose and we just need to go for it."

This year's final will take at the Phillips Stadium in Eindhoven on June 3, one week prior to the men's showpiece.
