Today: Newcastle’s 0-0 draw with Leicester wasn’t a classic, but the point secured a top-four finish and long-awaited Champions League return for the Magpies. The Foxes didn’t have a shot on target until stoppage time, but a draw was a good (if not great) result. They have to beat West Ham on Sunday and hope for a favour from Bournemouth to stay in the top flight.

Elsewhere, more shameful incidents of racist abuse towards Vinícius Júnior in Spain this weekend – could this be a watershed moment for change, or is that just wishful thinking?

Plus: Juventus get 10 points re-deducted, the classic quiz show Turnabout, Soccer Saturday chat and your questions answered.
