Liverpool vs Newcastle The late match in the Premier League on Saturday is at Anfield. Because when you have served Liverpool as Rafa has, I don't think you should go across the park and work for Everton . Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for Liverpool just before half-time in their clash with the Magpies at Anfield. "It will be a massive achievement [avoiding relegation] - we have to stay calm and think about the next game". Read More »

Matic is as realistic as his manager when it comes to making up the Premier League deficit given Manchester City's eye-watering advantage, but the midfielder also shares his manger's determination to keep plugging away.

Victor Lindelof 'living the dream' at Manchester United

perth_map

I'm just trying to improve on those things that I'm already good at. Jose Mourinho's men have been in second for much of the Premier League campaign and have advanced in the cup competitions of the FA Cup and Champions League. If United are to enjoy a trophy-filled climax, Lindelof could find himself unexpectedly cast as a key figure in Mourinho's plans - something that looked unthinkable in his early months in Manchester.

NFL Scouting Combine: Baker Mayfield intends to be 'best ever' QB

perth_map

He's ultra-short by NFL QB standards, only 6-foot-5/8 inches. And you just can't point to the height of Brees and Wilson without ignoring their character and dedication. "If they ask me to compete for the starting job I'm gonna compete my butt off". Mayfield said he understands the point of the NFL Scouting Combine, where more than 300 prospects and almost the same number of scouts and NFL team executives converge each year, is to find out "what's wrong with you".

Why Is Everyone Freaking Out Over Josh Allen?

perth_map

I think that's for other people to decide. Knowing that organization has the mindset of winning, that's what they want to do, would be a blessing. I went and did the bench press and competed with everyone else and did 20. He has some flaws, no doubt, but so do all the other top quarterback prospects. Allen and Mayfield started their workouts on a good note, with perfectly acceptable 40-yard dash times of 4.75 and 4.81 seconds, respectively. Read More »

perth_map

The former Chelsea goalkeeper is now 11 Premier League games without a clean sheet since recording his 199th against Newcastle in mid-December. Centre-half Lewis Dunk and striker Glenn Murray seized upon flimsy goalkeeping from Petr Cech to fire Brighton into a two-goal lead, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's strike shortly before half-time failed to spark a revival.

Eagles want Vinny Curry to restructure deal, could trade or release DE

perth_map

Having selected defensive end Derek Barnett with the No. 14 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and his impact as a rookie, Curry's starting spot could be in jeopardy. If both sides can't agree on a contract restructuring, he will likely be cut to clear cap space for the Eagles. With other top options like Ezekiel Ansah and DeMarcus Lawrence unlikely to leave their current teams, the free-agent supply will be light this offseason for a position that is always in high demand.

A win in the semifinals would advance Virginia to the ACC Tournament finals and leave them just one win away from winning both the ACC regular season and tournament titles in the same season.

Saturday night's Battle of the Blues rematch (won by Duke, 74-64) settled the rest of the outstanding seeds for the tournament. Read More »

The case was later dropped when the young woman declined to testify against Bryant in court. The retired basketball player and MVP won the Academy Award for best animated short film Sunday.

Gary Neville podcast - Manchester City 1-0 Chelsea

I really felt that so strongly". For this reason, you must understand this. The manager must have put it in their minds to sit back. And, as much as I love Chelsea , their defeat was exactly what they deserved. In fairness to both Arsenal and Chelsea , this is Manchester City they're playing against. City won a rather boring contest 1-0 courtesy of a Bernardo Silva strike and, in truth, Chelsea didn't really create any serious chances of note, and seemed pretty happy to defend ... Read More »
