first_imgRelatedPosts Bale completes Tottenham return from Real Madrid Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Neymar bags two-match ban Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani have been ruled out of Paris St Germain’s opening Champions League group stage match against Real Madrid on Wednesday, the French Ligue 1 champions said. Mbappe picked up a hamstring injury and was forced off against Toulouse last month and has not featured since for PSG, while Cavani is out of action with a hip problem. PSG confirmed on Monday that the two strikers will resume training by the end of the week. Thomas Tuchel’s side will also be without Neymar, with the Brazilian forward serving a three-match Champions League ban for insulting match officials following PSG’s defeat by Manchester United in the round of 16 last season. Mbappe, Neymar and Cavani netted 11 of PSG’s 20 goals in their Champions League campaign last season, and the trio will be crucial again in 2019-20 as the club look to go deep in Europe’s elite competition.Tags: Edinson CavaniKylian MbappeNeymarPSGReal MadridThomas Tuchellast_img read more

EPL: Spurs feast on Burnley

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Son fires four past Southampton EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U Tottenham vs. Burnley Venue: Tottenham Stadium Kick off: 4PMTottenham Hotspur and Burnley will be looking to recover from poor results during the week when the two sides meet in the Premier League this afternoon. Jose Mourinho suffered his first defeat as Spurs boss at former club Manchester United on Wednesday, while Burnley were comfortably beaten by Manchester City the day before. Following three impressive victories under Mourinho, Spurs were brought back down to earth in quite typical fashion at Old Trafford. The injection of the Portuguese has no doubt lifted spirits following a gloomy period under Mauricio Pochettino since the Champions League final, as was seen with the free-flowing nature of how Spurs attacked against West Ham, Olympiacos and then Bournemouth. However, when faced with a relatively equal opponent on a big stage – an occasion requiring more tactical nuance – Spurs seemed to lack ideas going forward and looked overwhelmed by United at points. Despite Dele Alli, a player Mourinho strongly believes in, scoring a wondrous goal, there was a discernible lack of identity and direction about how Spurs attacked on Wednesday, which was a criticism levelled at Mourinho during his time in Manchester. However, it remains very early days in the Mourinho era, and at this stage, the 56-year-old will be less concerned by results and more interested in cementing a particular way of attacking and defending as a unit – his key philosophy – when Spurs meet Burnley on Saturday. While Spurs are undergoing significant changes this season, Burnley seem to be staying remarkably true to type under manager Sean Dyche. Now in their fourth season back in the top flight, the Clarets finds themselves sitting comfortably in 11th place on 18 points, with no punter even considering the possibility of relegation this season. With very limited resources and an unswervingly consistent set of tactical principles, Dyche has created a foundation at Burnley that essentially guarantees the club a minimum of 40 points over 38 games. Playing with a classic 4-4-2 system, with one number nine and a second striker just in behind, Burnley press and attack as a unit, squeezing space in the final third and testing the patience of opponents from set pieces. Against a Spurs side desperate for a victory, Burnley players will know exactly what their plan is heading into this game in North London. Tottenham Hotspur XI: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose; Sissoko, Winks, Dele, Lo Celso, Son, Kane. Burnley possible XI: Pope, Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Drinkwater, Cork, Lennon, Brady, Barnes, Wood.Tags: Burnley FCJose MourinhoManchester CityManchester UnitedMauricio PochettinoTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more

Iheanacho vows to work harder

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Foxes attack Burnley Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Kelechi Iheanacho is determined to make the most of opportunities that come his way in the Leicester City starting 11. The former Manchester City striker has had to play second fiddle, perhaps unsurprisingly, to Jamie Vardy, who has shone since Brendan Rodgers replaced Claude Puel last season. Vardy has 17 goals in 24 appearances in all competitions this season and leads the Premier League scoring charts, but Iheanacho’s record isn’t all that bad, either. Iheanacho has six goals in 10 appearances in all competitions and has featured regularly under Rodgers since the back end of the year. “It’s been a good season, to be fair,” Iheanacho told Leicester’s club website. “Pre-season and getting the work done in pre-season (and) getting into the season, it’s not been easy, but I need to keep working hard and I’ll get my chance. “It’s a good group of boys, they’re like family, with everyone together and the staff as well. Everyone is happy doing well. (When) the chance comes, you have to take it.” The 23-year-old scored in the 2-1 win over the Hammers at the London Stadium on December 28. Since then David Moyes has replaced Manuel Pellegrini. “In the Premier League, when there is a change of manager, you will see a difference from the previous one,” said Iheanacho. “It’s always going to be a difficult one. No game is easy in the Premier League, so every game is hard. It’s going to be a tough one because they have become stronger, there’s something that has sparked them at the moment because of the way they are playing now.”— Tags: Kelechi IheanachoLeicester CityManchester Citylast_img read more

NPFL: Akwa United star first to reach double figures in battle for Eunisell Boot

first_imgRelatedPosts NPFL: Coach Dogo leaves Sunshine Stars NFF sanctions NPFL 2019/2020 final table Ex-Eagles’ keeper joins Kwara United Akwa United utility man, Ndifreke Effiong, has become the first player to score 10 goals in the race to win this season’s Eunisell Boot Award. Effiong, who plays in various positions from the defence to midfield and attack, netted his 10th goal of the 2019/20 season in the Nigeria Professional Football League on Sunday when his team played host to Warri Wolves at the Nest of Champions in Uyo. However, Effiong’s goal in added time of the second half could only save the blushes of the Promise Keepers from defeat at home as they played out a 1-1 draw with Warri Wolves. The breakdown of the 10 goals scored by the Akwa United man shows that only two have been from the penalty spot, while the others have come from open play. The former Abia Warriors attacking midfielder now sets the pace in the race for the Eunisell Boot Award, but will have to look over his shoulders with a very formidable field of chasing pack breathing down his neck. Effiong is now a goal better than Enyimba forward, Victor Mbaoma, who fired blanks in his team’s 2-0 defeat at Nasarawa United on Sunday. Mbaoma is currently on nine goals. The trio of Tasiu Lawal of Katsina United, Plateau United’s Ibrahim Mustapha and Rangers striker Israel Abia are on eight goals each. The Eunisell Boot Award, created by Eunisell, West Africa’s largest independent chemicals and engineering solutions group, aims to help increase the standard of the NPFL by rewarding the season’s top scorer with N200,000 for each goal scored.Tags: Akwa UnitedEunisell BootNdifreke Effiongnpfllast_img read more

Miss is head girl for Winters

first_imgTrainer Mick Winters claimed back-to-back runnings of the Guinness Galway Hurdle as dual-purpose mare Missunited struck gold in the hands of Robbie Power. Press Association Power said: “The race worked out 100%. It’s not often things work out in a 20-runner handicap. I jumped off and I got a lovely position. When I gave her smack after the last she quickened up and put her head down. “Mick was very confident, very bullish, and said the ground wouldn’t be an issue. To win the race two years in a row with two different horses is unbelievable.” Winters said: “The mare is Flat-bred and the owner was anxious about letting her take her chance here. I’ve just been terribly lucky to have herself and Rebel Fitz. This one stays and I was confident enough when she hit the front. “It’s super to win it back to back. Last year I had to muck out the next morning but this year I’m prepared and I have a few on to work. “Jason Maguire was asked to ride but he couldn’t do the weight. Martin Ferris did a good job schooling her but the owners wanted someone that was there before. “I had this race mapped out for her for 12 months and now I’d love to see her coming up the hill in Cheltenham. The only mare that I’d be afraid of in the country is Annie Power. “The mare will now go for a Listed race in the Curragh over a mile and three-quarters in two weeks’ time.” center_img The genial County Cork handler landed a gamble 12 months ago with stable star Rebel Fitz, successful over fences earlier on the card, and this year’s challenger was a leading contender at 7-1. Never too far off the pace, the six-year-old scooted clear from the home turn and safely negotiated the final flight to secure victory by three and three-quarter lengths. Flaxen Flare filled the runner-up spot ahead of Make Your Mark and Drive Time, who finished third and fourth respectively. last_img read more
