Quick Reads
Manchester United's Paul Pogba warms up on the pitch ahead of the Premier League match at Elland Road, Leeds. Picture date: Sunday February 20, 2022.

The weekend’s headlines were dominated by the thrilling Premier League match between Tottenham and Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Harry Kane scoring a late winner that re-opened a title race that had seemed closed.
