* An own goal by Craig Dawson gave United a 1-0 home win over fifth-placed West Ham United after Leicester City had thrashed visiting bottom club Sheffield United 5-0 to briefly go second.
* Tottenham had the chance to go fifth but lost 2-1 at Arsenal despite a stunning Erik Lamela goal. In the day's early kickoff, Brighton & Hove Albion secured a valuable 2-1 win at Southampton to move three points above third-bottom Fulham in the battle to avoid relegation.
* United's win put them back into second place with 57 points from 29 games, one more than Leicester and crucially nine ahead of West Ham. Manchester City are 14 points clear at the top after their 3-0 defeat of Fulham on Saturday.
* Sevilla beat Real Betis 1-0 at home in La Liga on Sunday to grab a first victory in five games in all competitions and cement their bid to finish in the top four. The victory tightened Sevilla’s hold on fourth place in the standings as they moved on to 51 points, six clear of fifth-placed Real Sociedad and nine ahead of Betis, who were left in sixth.
* AC Milan suffered a major blow to their Serie A title hopes as Matteo Politano's second-half strike earned Napoli a 1-0 win on Sunday to leave the hosts nine points behind leaders Inter Milan in second place. Stefano Pioli's side remain second on 56 points, but are now at risk of being dragged into the battle for a top four finish as Juventus are one point behind them in third and Napoli in fifth have 50 points and a game in hand.
* Striker Sam Kerr scored a hat-trick as Chelsea thrashed Bristol City 6-0 to win the Continental Cup on Sunday, recording the biggest margin of victory in the Women’s League Cup final.
* Cristiano Ronaldo scored a perfect hat-trick inside 32 minutes as Juventus bounced back from their midweek Champions League exit by beating Cagliari 3-1 away in Serie A on Sunday. The 36-year-old striker found the net with a header, a right-footed penalty and a left-foot shot and celebrated by pointing to his ear in an apparent response to recent criticism.
* Frenchman Antoine Rozner holed a remarkable 60-foot putt on the final hole for a closing birdie as he claimed his second European Tour title at the Qatar Masters on Sunday. India’s Gaganjeet Bhullar and South African Darren Fichardt finished second along with Migliozzi one shot off the lead, two clear of England’s Richard McEvoy and Welshman Jamie Donaldson.
* Second-placed RB Leipzig lost ground in the Bundesliga title race when they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday. The draw ended Leipzig’s six-match winning run in the league, and Julian Nagelsmann’s side are now on 54 points after 25 games, four points behind leaders Bayern Munich.
* Earlier, sixth-placed Bayer Leverkusen failed to overtake Dortmund after they lost 2-1 at home to lowly Arminia Bielefeld.
* Relegation battling Parma stunned AS Roma by beating the Champions League hopefuls 2-0 at the Stadio Ennio Tardini on Sunday to end a 17-match winless run in Serie A. Valentin Mihaila fired the hosts to an early lead before Hernani's second-half penalty sealed a deserved win for Roberto D'Aversa's side, their first victory since Nov 30.
* Mathieu van der Poel emptied his tank to take a solo win in the fifth stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico on Sunday as Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar extended his overall lead in impressive style. Monday’s sixth stage is a 169km ride from Castelraimondo to Lido di Fermo.
* Mexican Sergio Perez was fastest for Red Bull on the final morning of Formula One’s pre-season testing in Bahrain on Sunday. Perez, who will hand over to Dutch team mate Max Verstappen for the afternoon stint, lapped the Sakhir circuit with a best time of one minute 30.187 seconds and did 47 laps as Red Bull again looked strong.
* Manchester United forwards Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial are likely to return for Thursday’s Europa League last-16 second leg game against AC Milan, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said. United were without the duo for Sunday’s Premier League match against West Ham United, which they won 1-0 thanks to a second-half own goal by Craig Dawson.
* Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min is set for a spell on the sidelines after limping off in the first half of Sunday’s 2-1 Premier League defeat at Arsenal and manager Jose Mourinho said the injury is a result of playing too many games. The 28-year-old pulled up with what looked to be a hamstring issue after chasing a pass and was replaced by Erik Lamela, who netted the opener for Spurs after 33 minutes.
