  • The 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic uses the 911 Turbo’s engine, albeit with reduced output of 543 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque.

Steven Gerrard admits that slip will ‘always hurt’

Chelsea go to Manchester United on Thursday looking to continue what has been a strange end to the season.

The team has an FA Cup final to look forward to in a couple of weeks, although they are out of the Champions League and marooned in third place in the Premier League. As a result, it would be easy for Thomas Tuchel’s team to lose some focus.

The Blues do have a proud recent away record to protect though and United will be wary of that, winning their last eight away fixtures in succession in
