Keep calm and Liverpool can carry on into next season’s Champions League

Joel Pereira - the U23s goalkeeper drafted in for Manchester United's final Premier League game of the season - wants to repay Jose Mourinho for the call-up.

Exeter are winning the scrum battle and bettering Saracens in most collisions. Can they keep it going to land an upset? Wonderful resilience from Exeter to get back to 6-6. Joel Pereira has said he is ready to make his full Manchester United debut and start living up to manager Jose Mourinho's expectations.
