Kfm Sunday Sport Morning Round-Up: Kildare Footballers & Hurlers Gear-Up For Action.

It's Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas day at The Curragh

GAELIC GAMES

Following victories in their opening league games, the Kildare hurlers and footballers are both back in action this afternoon.

David Herity's side comprehensively defeated Donegal in St Conleth's Park in Division 2B of the Allianz NHL last time out.

This weekend, they take on Derry in Manguard Plus Hawkfield, with a throw-in time of 4pm.

Kfm will have live coverage of the match with Seamus Dillon.

 

Before that, at 2pm, the footballers are up against Clare in St Conleth's Park.

The Lillies impressively defeated Cork in their first game of the season last weekend and will be looking for victory in their first home game.

Kfm will have full, live commentary with Ger McNally, Peter McConnon and Johnny Doyle, in association with Hanlon Concrete, Robertstown.


Elsewhere, it's all eyes on Semple Stadium this afternoon as Dublin and Kerry meet in Division One South of the Allianz National Football League.

There's a quarter-to-2 throw-in for the game that is 20 years on from the infamous 'trip to Tipp.'

Kerry are unchanged from their win over Roscommon last weekend while Evan Comerford is set to start in goals for the Dubs with Jonny Cooper replacing Seán MacMahon in the full-back line.

At 2-o'clock Galway welcome Connacht neighbours Roscommon to Pearse Stadium as they both go in search of their first wins of the campaign.

Waterford entertaining Limerick is the pick of this afternoon's games in Division One of the Allianz National Hurling League.

The Group A game at Walsh Park is a repeat of last year's All-Ireland final and throw-in is at a quarter-to-4.

Before that, Cork host Westmeath at Páirc Uí Chaoimh from 3-o'clock.

And at the same time Clare make the trip to MW Hire O'Moore Park to face Laois in Group B.

SOCCER

The 2020/21 Premier League season wraps up today.

Chelsea, Leicester City and Liverpool could all still finish in the last two Champions League places.

Respective wins for Chelsea and Liverpool over Aston Villa and Crystal Palace would be enough for them to secure top four finishes.

The Foxes meanwhile will be hoping either of the other two slip up when they host Tottenham.

Manager Brendan Rogers says their only focus now can be on securing all three points today

All of those games kick-off at 4-o'clock.

At the same time Arsenal host Brighton, Fulham entertain Newcastle before going back down to the EFL Championship,

Leeds will look to end their impressive return to the top flight with a win over relegated West Brom,

Champions Manchester City welcome Everton to the Etihad,

Bottom side Sheffield United take on Burnley at Bramall Lane,

While it's West Ham versus Southampton at the London Stadium,

And Wolves take on Manchester United at Molineux (pron: Mol-in-you) in what will be Nuno Espirito Santo's last game with the club.

FORMULA ONE

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc (pron: Sharl Le-clerr) will start from pole position at the Monaco F1 Grand Prix today.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen was second-fastest yesterday in qualifying, ahead of Valtteri Bottas in his Mercedes.

World champion Lewis Hamilton could only finish seventh-quickest.


RACING

It's Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas day at The Curragh today.

The Joseph O'Brien trained 'Pretty Gorgeous' is expected to go off the favourite when that goes to post at a-quarter-past-3.

That's one of eight races on the card, with the first off at half-past-1.
