Fifth placed Arsenal have a must win Premier League match at home to Sunderland tonight while fourth placed Manchester City host West Brom.

If the Gunners win and City lose they’ll be level on 72 points each with one game to go.

GAELIC GAMES

Tipperary’s appeal of Jason Forde’s suspension will be heard tonight.

As it stands a one match ban will keep him out of Sunday’s Munster Hurling Championship opener against Cork.

Forde’s punishment is related to his tangle with Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald in the Allianz league semi final.

TENNIS

Roger Federer won’t play in this year’s French Open.

In a statement, the 35-year old says he is skipping the clay court season in its entirety to preserve himself in the long term.

The 18-time Grand Slam winner has returned to form this year, with victory at the Australian Open.

But Federer says an assault on Wimbledon and the US Open are his priorities this year.

Maria Sharapova will find out today if she will be granted a wild card to this year’s French Open.

The Russian only recently returned from a 15-month drugs ban, and reached the semi finals at the Stuttgart Open.

As a result, she hasn’t amassed enough ranking points to compete at Roland-Garros on merit.

But financial pressures on the organisers in Paris may lead to Sharapova gaining entry to at least the qualifying rounds.
