EPL: Spurs, Liverpool collide in London

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Tottenham vs. Liverpool Venue: Tottenham Stadium Kick off: 6:30PMHistory beckons for Liverpool this evening as they visit Tottenham Hotspur looking to secure the best-ever start in the 131-year history of English top-flight football. A 20th victory from their 21st game of the campaign would secure that remarkable feat, but they come up against a familiar foe in Jose Mourinho, who has spoiled the Liverpool party on more than one occasion in the past. Who else but Mourinho would be standing in the way of Liverpool and the extraordinary slice of history they could achieve today? Rarely has a manager had such a storied rivalry with one particular club having never been in charge of them himself, from Luis Garcia’s “Ghost Goal” in the 2005 Champions League semi-final to Steven Gerrard’s infamous slip towards the end of one of Liverpool’s previous title challenges in 2013-14. Mourinho versus Liverpool is almost as big an occasion as the team he is in charge of, with the Portuguese having faced the Reds 28 times throughout his career – more than he has faced any other club. Of those 28 games he has lost just seven, while in the Premier League he has lost only three of 17. The three-time Premier League winner has never come up against a Liverpool team like this one, though, with Jurgen Klopp’s side having picked up 58 points from the 60 on offer to build a commanding 13-point lead at the top of the table. Only Manchester City’s centurions of 2017-18 have ever fared as well after 20 games of an English top-flight season, but they drew game number 21. Victory for Liverpool would see them set a new benchmark of 61 points from a possible 63. Should they achieve that then they would have already surpassed their overall points tally from nine of their previous Premier League campaigns, but Klopp has repeatedly insisted that these records mean nothing to him. Instead, his eyes are firmly on the prize which has eluded Liverpool since 1990, and it would take not only an unprecedented collapse but an entire reversal of the club’s form over the past two years to deny them that 19th top-flight title now. Indeed, talk has already turned to the possibility of an Invincible campaign rather than merely a title-winning one, and it is easy to see why considering Liverpool have overcome challenge after challenge this term – most recently winning every game bar the EFL Cup match in which they fielded an Under-23 side during a hectic December, despite a mounting injury list. The Reds have continued that perfection into 2020 so far, utterly dominating Sheffield United in their last Premier League outing before embarrassing Merseyside neighbours Everton with a 1-0 FA Cup win despite again fielding a youthful side. Liverpool have not even conceded a Premier League goal since Everton previously visited Anfield on December 2, keeping five top-flight clean sheets on the bounce having managed only two in their opening 15 games of the season. The numbers behind Liverpool’s run are in danger of becoming normalised through overuse, but they are worth repeating again – 28 wins from their last 29 Premier League games, 37 top-flight matches unbeaten stretching back more than a year and 29 consecutive games in which they have scored. The latter is a streak only two teams in Premier League history can beat and will be particularly concerning for a Spurs side that has only kept one clean sheet from their 12 matches under Mourinho so far. Liverpool’s clean sheet record will also be a worry with Spurs missing Harry Kane through injury for the foreseeable future, but few are better at devising tactical plans to keep a Liverpool side at bay than Mourinho. Mourinho is one of only a handful of managers to have experienced something similar to the run Liverpool are on at the moment, having seen his 2005-06 Chelsea team reach 58 points in 21 games, and Spurs will be hoping that gives him some idea of how to stop the rampant Reds. Spurs do not come into the game in particularly good form, though, winning just one of their last five outings across all competitions including a 1-1 draw at Championship side Middlesbrough in Sunday’s FA Cup clash. Tottenham’s last Premier League game saw them slump to a 1-0 defeat to Southampton – a result made all the more miserable by Kane’s injury – and they subsequently sit six points off the pace in the battle for a Champions League spot. Spurs have not lost back-to-back league games yet this season, though, while their home form is more encouraging – four wins from five under Mourinho, with the only exception being a 2-0 defeat at the hands of former club Chelsea. However, those victories did all come in matches they were expected to win, and now they find themselves in danger of failing to win four games on the bounce across all competitions for the first time since November 2016. For Liverpool this match is one of those which would have been earmarked as one of their toughest remaining tests this season, particularly coming as part of a double-header with Manchester United visiting Anfield next week. The Reds were relentless while playing every three days or so over the festive period, though, while most of the first team will have had nine days to get ready for this match, meaning that they will be raring to go on their trip to North London. Tottenham possible XI: Gazzaniga, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Aurier, Alli, Winks, Eriksen, Sessegnon, Son, Lucas. Liverpool possible XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane.Tags: EPLJose MourinhoJurgen KloppLiverpoolTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more

Derry progress in style

first_imgRory Patterson netted a hat-trick as Derry City won 5-0 at Aberystwyth Town on Thursday to wrap up an emphatic aggregate victory and seal their place in the second qualifying round of the Europa League. Goals from Ingimundur Niels Oskarsson and Kristjan Gauti Emilsson put the visitors firmly in control of the tie in the first half. Glenavon levelled on the night when Kevin Braniff and Eoin Bradley scored a couple of minutes apart around the hour, but nine minutes later Emilsson converted a penalty. Two other Welsh teams were in action and both suffered the same fate as Aberystwyth in being eliminated. Airbus UK lost 2-1 at Norwegian side FK Haugesund of Norway for a 3-2 aggregate defeat, with Michael Pearson equalising Torbjorn Agdestein’s opener early on before the second half saw Maic Sema net for the hosts and Jordan Barrow sent off for the visitors. Bangor City were on the end of an 8-0 aggregate thumping as they were beaten 4-0 at home by Icelanders Stjarnan, the goals being notched by Martin Rauschenberg, Arnar Bjorgvinsson (two) and Atli Johannsson. The League of Ireland Premier Division visitors went into the game already with a handsome advantage over their Welsh Premier League opponents, having triumphed 4-0 in the opening leg of the first qualifying round tie. And they swiftly added to it at Park Avenue, with Michael Duffy putting them 1-0 up on the night in the 11th minute and Barry McNamee doubling that lead just three minutes later. Press Association Northern Ireland forward Patterson scored his first on the hour mark and then netted twice in quick succession (84 and 86) late on – the final effort being a penalty, awarded for a Luke Sherbon foul on Mark Timlim – to complete the 9-0 overall rout. Two other League of Ireland Premier Division outfits also progressed on Thursday in Sligo and Dundalk. Sligo were another to post a comprehensive result, thumping Lithuanians Banga, who they had drawn 0-0 with away, 4-0 at The Showgrounds. Alan Keane put the hosts 1-0 up in first-half stoppage time, and after Karolis Urbaitis was sent off for the away side in the 68th minute, Sligo made the most as Aaron Greene (72), Danny North (83) and David Cawley (89) also got on the scoresheet. Dundalk saw off Luxembourg’s Jeunesse Esch 3-1 at home for a 5-1 aggregate victory, with goals from Brian Gartland, Kurtis Byrne and John Mountney putting the Lilywhites out of sight by the interval before Jonathan Zydko’s second-half consolation. There were mixed fortunes for Danske Bank Premiership teams as Crusaders advanced to the next round but Glenavon crashed out. Crusaders completed a 5-2 aggregate win over FK Ekranas of Lithuania with a 2-1 away triumph, Paul Heatley scoring a second-half brace either side of Lukas Kochanauskas’ reply. Glenavon lost 3-2 at home against FH Hafnarfjordur of Iceland, going down 6-2 overall. last_img read more

Football News Manchester City beat Leicester 3-1 in penalty shootout, progress to semi-final of the English League Cup

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Manchester: On a tumultuous day for beleaguered Manchester United, crosstown rival Manchester City advanced to the English League Cup semifinals to keep in the hunt for trophies on four fronts this season. Man City beat Leicester 3-1 in a penalty shootout on Tuesday to stay on course to retain the title and give Pep Guardiola another piece of silverware, hours after his great managerial rival Jose Mourinho was fired by United. The game finished 1-1 in regulation time, with Kevin De Bruyne marking the first start of his latest comeback from injury with the opening goal from the edge of the area for Man City before Marc Albrighton equalized. City was surprisingly joined in the semifinals by third-tier Burton Albion, which won 1-0 at second-tier Middlesbrough to keep its fairytale run going in the competition. Burton became the first team from the third tier or lower to reach the last four of the League Cup since Sheffield United did so under manager Nigel Clough in 2014-15. Clough now coaches Burton. In Wednesday’s quarterfinal matches, Tottenham hosts north London rival Arsenal and Chelsea is at home to Bournemouth. In a low-quality shootout at the King Power stadium, only four of the eight penalties taken were scored. The decisive one was the best of the lot, converted high into the corner by Man City left back Oleksandr Zinchenko.Read More | Manchester United sack José Mourinho after defeat at LiverpoolIt spared some of the embarrassment of his teammate Raheem Sterling, who attempted a so-called “panenka” down the middle and only succeeded in chipping it over the bar. Leicester failed to score from three of its four attempts, with Man City back-up goalkeeper Arijanet Muric saving two of them.Read More | Lionel Messi hat-trick boosts Barcelona to top of La Liga table”He’s got veins of ice,” De Bruyne said of the 20-year-old Kosovan goalkeeper, who was making only his third appearance for the Premier League champions. Leicester manager Claude Puel made seven changes to his team, despite the League Cup being his best chance to win silverware this season. Guardiola won two trophies last season the League Cup and the Premier League and has the strength in depth in his squad to seriously challenge for every title possible this season, too. City has qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League, where it was given a favorable draw against Schalke, and is second in the Premier League a point behind Liverpool. Guardiola offered his condolences to Mourinho, who arrived in Manchester in the same summer of 2016, but hasn’t enjoyed the same success as Guardiola. “I am always sad for the manager when that happens,” Guardiola said.”We are alone in that situation. I am close to all of the managers. You are sacked when results are not good. “He doesn’t need me, he is so strong. I wish him all the best and he will be back soon.”  last_img read more

We definitely as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated (to the two players). I can definitely say that as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers we definitely don’t align with those views and those are purely individual views.

We are still waiting for a decision to be made,” Kohli said.Pandya and KL Rahul’s suspension was lifted on January 2019 by the Committee of Administrators pending a probe.

first_imgKENYA’s Olympic marathon champion Jemima Sumgong has been suspended for four years for doping.The 32-year-old was found to have taken banned blood booster EPO in an out-of-competition test in her home country.Sumgong, who also tested positive for a banned substance in 2012, won the London Marathon in 2016 before claiming gold in Rio, becoming the first Kenyan woman to take the title.Her ban runs from 3 April, when she was provisionally suspended.EPO, also known as erythropoietin, is a hormone that can increase endurance and, in athletics, is used mainly by long distance-runners.Between 2011 and 2016, more than 40 Kenyan track-and-field athletes failed doping tests.Among those sanctioned was Sumgong’s former training partner Rita Jeptoo, 36, who was banned for four years following a positive test for EPO in 2014.Earlier this year, Sumgong was one of a number of Kenyan athletes who welcomed a new initiative to eradicate doping, agreeing to be monitored by doctors appointed by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and Athletics Kenya.“It will be easy for us now to communicate with these doctors before we take any medicine when the need arises,” she said at the time.(BBC Sport)last_img read more

Did Vikings’ dud in divisional round expose deeper problems? They aren’t in the mood to discuss

0 Comments

More difficult for Minnesota to speak on? Finishing with 147 total yards and struggling to connect all afternoon after hearing sharp criticism of its offense throughout the campaign.The Vikings now enter the offseason needing to sort out why they’ve yet to progress from their 2017 run to the NFC championship game despite a stable of talented skill position players on either side of the ball.”They took it to us,” Thielen said. “They punched us in the mouth, and we didn’t help ourselves when the plays where there to be made.”MORE: Takeaways from 49ers’ win over VikingsEarlier this season, the Vikings managed to control play with their run game, led by Dalvin Cook. That identity evaporated down the stretch — Cook didn’t surpass 4 yards per carry in a contest after Oct. 24. Cook managed 18 yards on nine attempts Saturday.So, coach Mike Zimmer tried the screen game. The 49ers, already creeping forward with their front seven, had no problem stopping short tosses to Cook. The Florida State product turned six catches into only 8 yards.As for deep balls? Not an issue for San Francisco outside of a 41-yard Stefon Diggs score in the first quarter, which led to the benching of defensive back Ahkello Witherspoon. Cousins did not crack 100 passing yards until the fourth quarter. Often when he sat in the pocket waiting for downfield routes to develop, he ended up on the ground. The 49ers recorded six sacks.Without a reliable way to move the ball, Minnesota could not afford to make critical mistakes if it wanted to keep the game close. The Sherman interception and a muffed punt late by Marcus Sherels allowed San Francisco to pull away.IYER: Niners will continue to roll no matter who they face in title game”When you don’t get in rhythm and you don’t get the running game going and get things going,” Cook said, “they can just sit back and fly around and make plays.”Zimmer attributed most of Minnesota’s shortcomings Saturday to San Francisco’s talent level. The 49ers’ defense, after all, ended the regular season ranked second in yardage allowed. Zimmer avoided taking a big-picture look at what went wrong with the offense during a stretch of three losses in five games to close the season. He said there would be more time to reflect in the coming months — about the offense overall and how the organization approaches its quarterback situation in the long term (though he did confirm his comfort with Cousins).Players were not in the mood to consider topics beyond the season-ending loss, either. When Diggs was asked whether Saturday’s dud offered any indication of how far Minnesota stands from genuine Super Bowl contention moving forward, the receiver waited to speak for several seconds, laughed and said, “I don’t know.”When Cousins was asked a similar question, he also chose not to engage.”Today, they were the better team,” Cousins said. “That’s really what you take from it.” SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Vikings receiver Adam Thielen didn’t see the pass from Kirk Cousins until cornerback Richard Sherman secured it and raced the other direction.Thielen shouldered blame afterward for not extending his route in front of Sherman or making a stronger attempt at the ball, failures that contributed to Sherman’s pivotal third-quarter interception in the Vikings’ 27-10 loss to the 49ers on Saturday. Thielen’s isolated mistake was easy to frame and assess responsibility. read more
