Morning Update

Soccer

Everton remain stuck in the Premier League drop zone after a 2-nil loss to Leicester City yesterday.

Both goals came in the first half through Jamie Vardy and a John-joe Kenny own-goal, giving Claude Puel victory in his first game as Foxes manager.

They’re now up to 11th, one place ahead of Brighton after their 1-all draw with Southampton.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he still doesn’t know when midfielder Paul Pogba will return from injury.

The club’s record signing has missed the last ten games with a hamstring problem.

It’s understood Pogba is making good progress, with rumors he could be back sooner than expected.

But Mourinho insists he’s not aware of a return date.

Formula 1

Lewis Hamilton has been crowned Formula One world champion for a fourth time despite an opening-lap collision with rival Sebastian Vettel at the Mexican Grand Prix.

The championship rivals both sustained damage in the collision as Hamilton’s Mercedes limped back to the pit lane with a right-rear puncture while Vettel stopped for repairs to his Ferrari’s broken front wing.

And although a determined Vettel fought back through the field to cross the line in fourth place, he fell well short of the victory he required to prevent Hamilton from winning the title with two rounds to spare.
