Headlines
As Leicester City close in on their impossible title. they will have to play one more match without Jamie Vardy. The FA has charged him with a one match ban after reviewing his behavior after getting sent off for simulation against West Ham. That means that if the Foxes want to lift the trophy after Sunday's tilt at Old Trafford, they will have to do it without Vardy in the lineup. Judging by their performance against Swansea, that might not be as hard as it sounds.

On the other end of the title chase, Dele Alli could face a suspension for this sucker punch to Claudio Yacob. His violent conduct charge could end his season, actually. The FA has suspended players three games for less. Diego Costa got three games for slapping Laurent Koscielny. Bastian Schweinsteiger got three for elbowing Winston Reid. So, it's possible that Tottenham could be without the Young Player of the Year for the rest of their, likely short, remaining title campaign.

Finally, although the Hillsborough disaster took place 27 years ago, there are still legal proceedings pending in the case. Most specifically, a jury is expected to rule today on whether the 96 victims were unlawfully killed in the stampede. If the jury determines that there was gross negligence on the part of match commander Chief Superintendent David Duckenfield, there could be criminal proceedings opened against him.
