perth_map

Klopp's team selection against Chelsea raised some eyebrows, with Roberto Firmino , Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum all rested despite the importance of the match. "It's important for me to come back now". But he's played down the incident: "I was shouting at him because he was in the centre". The 50-year-old has often been criticized for having too much faith in his players, oftentimes waiting to make changes until very late when results are needed. Read More »

It's nice to do something like that and compete and have a couple little denominations [a bet] we're playing for. Faxon was just the latest golfer to praise Woods' revamped swing, joining Rickie Fowler and Jason Day. He was not concerned about swinging hard and going at it with the driver. "I was impressed with how far [Woods] hit the ball", Faxon wrote in a Golfweek column after the famous foursome's best-ball match. Read More »

perth_map

Lamela, who joined Spurs four years ago for a then club record £30million, has undergone operations on each of his hips and not played since October 25, 2016. Tottenham star Dele Alli reveals the players are fully behind their manager Mauricio Pochettino and praises his impact on his own development. It is surely no coincidence, therefore, that Tottenham have enjoyed most success at home against Dortmund, Real Madrid and Liverpool, all of whom played far more adventurous football and ...

perth_map

The Gunners looked headed for a draw until Aaron Ramsey was pushed down in the area in injury time and Alexis Sanchez netted the victor from the spot. Arsenal are on a great run at home and Huddersfield experienced their own late goal heartbreak against Manchester City on Sunday. Ozil had trained as normal on Saturday and spent the night with the rest of the team at their hotel ahead of the game, but was a surprise absentee from the Arsenal lineup - which was otherwise unchanged from ...

Jimmy Garoppolo finally makes his 49ers debut and throws a touchdown pass

perth_map

For as much talent as the Seattle Seahawks have lost on defense over the last few weeks, they've still got quite a few playmakers left on that side of the ball. The game was close until the third quarter, when the 49ers drove for a field goal to come within 7-6. But Beathard's go-to option has been his running backs on swing passes. Read More »

Jose Mourinho: 'Manchester United fans have been soft'

perth_map

United lost 1-0 at Chelsea at the start of November and only once this month, in a 4-1 home win over Newcastle United , have they exhibited the kind of slick attacking football they showcased earlier in the campaign. Guardiola admits City's scintillating run will end eventually, but he believes the way his team saw off fired-up Huddersfield should serve as a warning to their rivals that they are fully focused on the title.

Mourinho pleased with Lukaku's work-rate, mentality

perth_map

But Lukaku was let off the hook on Monday, meaning he will be free to play in United 's next game against the Hornets. United manager Jose Mourinho will be understandably irritated if Lukaku is banned retrospectively after Duffy escaped, but he should take comfort in the three points because the only goal of the game - Ashley Young's deflected effort - came just after the whistle should have blown for Lukaku's assault.

Moeen disappointed with stumping

perth_map

OUT popped up on the Gabba's Dulux-sponsored big screen and Mo had to go. It was a good pitch to bat on but we haven't made a hundred in the game. So you've just got to move on. That said, Lyon has shown his class in this game - his talk beforehand rather side-tracked from how fine an off-spinner he is and how good he is against left-handers. Read More »

Raiders beat Broncos 21-14 in fight-filled game

perth_map

Raiders guard Gabe Jackson pushed an official as he tried to join in and protect Crabtree and got ejected for his actions. I'm looking for the squad to get him the ball early and often. If the Carr pass to Patterson was incomplete, the Broncos would have got the ball back at about their 40-yard line with 2:15 remaining. Denver would capitalize on the missed field goal, driving the length of the field, and finding the end zone when Siemian connected with Bennie Fowler on a 22-yard score. Read More »

Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, when asked if there was a touch of relief about the win, Mourinho said: "Yes". "I think they played really well and we didn't play well".
