That was more like a battle than a football game. Why did that happen? You know very well.”That’s why it’s compulsory to behave professionally. We translate a lot of emotion to the people.

The first time I watched Virgil and Kieran play, I thought, ‘Are you lucky, or are you brilliant at reading the game?’.“I’d love to see some analysis on how many times he intercepts or clears the ball in the box.“He thinks like a forward, so he understands what they’re going to do.“You could have six attackers and just him, and Kieran could still sniff the danger and get the ball.“So he’ll certainly help Arsenal get to the top four.“He’s more than just a good player — he has incredible spirit, strength, ability, and versatility, he’s perfect for Arsenal.“He mostly played at left-back or wing-back for Celtic.“But he can also play just as well at left centre-back or on the left of a three, which is how Unai Emery has got them playing just now.” last_img read more

Sarri reveals Chelsea’s January transfer plans

first_imgMaurizio Sarri has played down links with Gonzalo Higuain after insisting that he is not looking to sign a striker in the January transfer window.The Blues boss did, however, hint that he could move for a winger as he looks to provide further competition for the likes of Willian, Pedro and Eden Hazard.Goal understands that Chelsea had been exploring the possibility of signing Argentine forward Higuain, potentially in a swap deal with Alvaro Morata, although the move is complicated by the fact that the 31-year-old is currently on loan at Milan from Juventus. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? And despite Olivier Giroud – who is now facing a month on the sidelines due to an ankle injury – and Morata’s struggles in front of goal, Sarri says that he won’t ask for Michy Batshuayi or Tammy Abraham to return from loan spells with Valencia and Aston Villa respectively.”No [I don’t need another striker], because I have the option with Hazard in this position,” he said. “We have Morata and Hazard can play very well in this position as we have seen in the last two, three matches. So I think that in this moment I don’t need another striker.  “Maybe another winger, because now we are in trouble with the injuries of Pedro, of [Callum] Hudson-Odoi and [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek. So I have the option for the striker [Hazard] but at the moment I have no option for the wingers.”Batshuayi has scored just three times in his first six months on loan at Valencia, and Goal understands the Blues are looking at the possibility of cutting short his spell in Spain and sending him on a temporary move elsewhere.Aston Villa have had a far better return from Abraham, meanwhile, with the 21-year-old having scored 16 goals in 20 games for the Championship side.Chelsea’s struggles in front of goal have seen Sarri deploy Hazard in a No.9 position recently, with the Belgian having grabbed 10 goals and nine assists so far this season.Sarri’s side currently sit fourth in the table at the start of 2019 having claimed two wins from their last two games after a shock defeat at home to Leicester City on December 22.Next up for the Blues is a meeting with Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Wednesdaylast_img read more

I just laughed out loud.— Matt Leinart (@MattLeinartQB) November 10, 2016Finebaum’s logic was that if Washington had to play Clemson in the non-conference like Auburn did, the Huskies would have lost. And so then you’re comparing a one-loss SEC champion Auburn team that beat Alabama with an undefeated Washington team, and he thinks it’s advantage Tigers in that situation.It’s certainly a stretch, and something that most people will not agree with.The next College Football Playoff rankings come out on Tuesday night.last_img read more

Because he appeared in fewer than five games, a new NCAA rule allows him to take a redshirt for the season and he will have four years of eligibility remaining. He made his college debut in Michigan State’s Nov. 10 loss to Ohio State.“He’s a guy that was fourth in line there and I thought he did an outstanding job for us, a tremendous job, sort of being put on stage in the Ohio State game to start with,” Dantonio said.Nebraska dealt with some special teams issues throughout Scott Frost’s first season in Lincoln, so getting some help at the punting position is big moving forward.The Huskers are entering the 2019 season with some serious optimism.Nebraska is coming off a 4-8 season, but most preseason top 25 polls are including the Huskers.last_img read more

ESPN Tells Ohio State Fans What To Expect In Ryan Day’s First Season

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Despite losing Meyer, ESPN expects Ohio State to contend for a national title.It is always going to be a high-upside, high-stress job, and in following in Urban Meyer’s footsteps, Day takes the job at maybe its highest stress and highest upside. Only two or three teams can match the top-to-bottom talent level in Columbus, and if blue-chip transfer Justin Fields is ready to play like the QB he’s supposed to be — and if he stays healthy — the sky remains the limit.While there is immense pressure on Day to find success, he’s already proven to be elite at his job.

ESPN Computer’s Prediction For Penn State-Maryland

As a result, the Terrapins have just a 29.1% to win. While ESPN loves the Nittany Lions in this one, could Saturday’s game be closer than expected?Maryland will be playing in front of its home crowd — it’s expected to be a raucous environment.

(Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images)The Big Ten is full of pivotal games this Saturday. Ohio State-Nebraska may be the prime-time matchup. But No. 12 Penn State faces Maryland in a game which carries heavy connotations.The Terrapins are improving each and every season as of late. They outscored their first two opponents by a combined score of 142-20. But then suffered a disappointing 20-17 loss to Temple on Sep. 14. The Owls dominated on the defensive side of the ball and shut down the MD offense.Maryland has had an extra week of preparation for Penn State though due to a bye. Could that extra preparation make a difference?The Nittany Lions have looked tremendous at times, but underwhelming in other various moments. Nonetheless, Penn State is 3-0 and looking for a win in its first Big Ten game of the season.last_img read more

India’s only concern in ODI series vs Australia is 3rd seamer: Sunil Gavaskar

first_img India Today Web Desk New DelhiJanuary 16, 2019UPDATED: January 16, 2019 23:28 IST Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been in good form with 6 wickets in 2 ODIs vs Australia (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSThe three-match ODI series between India and Australia is currently locked at 1-1The series decider will be played in Melbourne on Friday”India may play only two seamers and three spinners in Melbourne,” Gavaskar saidFormer India skipper Sunil Gavaskar has raised concerns over India’s third pace bowling option in the ongoing three-match one day international series in Australia. The series is currently locked at 1-1 after India rode on captain Virat Kohli’s magnificent 39th century and MS Dhoni’s unbeaten fifty to beat Australia in the second ODI in Adelaide on Tuesday. Kohli struck 104 off 112 balls while Dhoni remained unbeaten on 55 off 54 deliveries to help India chase down a challenging 299-run target at the Adelaide Oval. Australia had won the first ODI by 34 runs in Sydney.India have missed the services of Jasprit Bumrah, who has been rested for the ODI series in Australia. In his absence, India included Khaleel Ahmed in the first ODI while Mohammed Siraj played as the third pacer in the second.Khaleel, who made his ODI debut at the Asia Cup last year, conceded 55 runs from his 8 overs. Khaleel was dropped in the 2nd ODI and was replaced by Siraj. But he too proved costly.Siraj, who became India’s 225th ODI player, had a horror debut. Siraj went wicketless in his full quota of 10 overs and conceded 76 runs in the process, which is the second-worst debut for an Indian bowler. He was subjected to numerous trolls on social media after his performance with the ball.Gavaskar said India may opt to play only two fast bowlers in the series-deciding Melbourne ODI.”The only problem in the bowling department in this series is India’s third pacer. In the first ODI, Khaleel Ahmed was expensive and in the second ODI Mohammed Siraj gave away too many runs. That is the only area of concern,” Gavaskar told Sports Tak.advertisement”India’s batting is good, fielding is also good. Melbourne is a big ground, India may play only two seamers and three spinners. Yuzvendra Chahal can be given a chance in Melbourne,” he added.Gavaskar also lauded Dhoni for his match-winning knock.”When a senior player is not in good form then everyone is concerned. But the way MS Dhoni batted he showed that he still has it in him. Maybe not what he used to be with the bat but he proved he was no less efficient,” Gavaskar said.Gavaskar said the victory in Adelaide will boost India’s confidence ahead of the third ODI.”A victory is a victory whether it is 3-0 or 2-1. Winning a series is more important. The way India bounced back in the Test series after losing in Perth in the same way India bounced back in Adelaide after losing the first ODI in Sydney. This victory will give India more confidence going into the Melbourne ODI for the series decider,” he said.After the tour of Australia, India travel to New Zealand for a limited-overs series in New Zealand where the two sides play 5 ODIs and three Twenty20 Internationals from January 23.Also Read | Rishabh Pant for World Cup 2019?

Velocity ended up losing the match against Supernovas by 12 runs.”In the previous game, we made a lapse by losing a heap of wickets because we were in a rush to close out the chase,” Krishnamurthy told reporters in Jaipur.”So our initial aim on Thursday was to qualify for the final because we had a certain target 117 to get. So, we were asked to play accordingly. And when we got close to that target is actually when we tried to go for our shots,” she added.Chasing a score of 143 against Harmanpreet Kaur’s led-Supernovas, Velocity was clearly seen chasing the spot in the finals.
