Jurgen Klopp 'angry' at thought oflosing to West Ham

Broos was hoping to persuade Matip to end his worldwide exile and earlier this week he told told Belgium's Voetbal Magazine: "When I took over as coach I went to see him in Gelsenkirchen and ask him to return to the team". In reality, they will be happy to escape a mauling, especially with title-chasing Liverpool smarting from last weekend's 4-3 loss at Bournemouth. Archant's West Ham correspondent Dave Evans saw them produce a stunning 3-0 win over the Reds on Merseyside last season, ... Read More »

Magnus Carlsen defeats Russian to retain chess title in nail-biting speed final

Karjakin even won one match despite playing on the black pieces, a situation generally regarded as disadvantageous. Carlsen has got many factors going his way in the tiebreaks if things unfold according to strength and logic. The match thus far has mostly been by theory so far, implying that all these moves can be found in many Chess training books. Should there still be a tie at this point, they will play up to four more sets of blitz games. Read More »

Even when Mexico travels to tricky World Cup qualifying encounters in CONCACAF, the type of opposition and pitches it encounters are more focused on stopping El Tri's play than anything else.

Pochettino sees swagger back at Spurs


The former Architect has had a fairly quiet season so far with only nine games under his belt - 6 x Serie A and one World Cup qualifier. "In the Premier League we have showed we can cope".

'Hairspray Live!' Premieres This Week, Live From US

While " Hairspray " is the tamest of Water's films, it even had a PG rating, it still pushed boundaries. The story revolves around plump teenager Tracy Turnblad's dream to dance on "The Corny Collins Show", a local TV program. "It's a poignant number".

MI (10-2) fell out of College Football Playoff contention with a double-overtime loss to Ohio State. Harbaugh said it one more time in a more succinct way.

Striker Fernando Llorente 'happy' at Swansea City


It was put to Pardew that his players lacked leadership on the pitch when it mattered and "wilted" in injury-time, when Fernando Llorente scored twice from close range to capitalise on some woeful defending. The hosts enjoyed a 3-1 advantage before Palace produced an impressive comeback with three unanswered goals for a 4-3 edge. We obviously didn't do that and it was a insane game that produced a result that was hard to take. Read More »

MI and Ohio State meet with eyes on conference and national championships

MI was also fined $10,000 as a result. Ohio State had won the battle the last two years, after U-M had been the victor in five out of the previous six years. In that scenario, they will have beaten the Pac-12 champion as well as the Big Ten champion-be it Wisconsin or Penn State. That balance, which has seemed to come and go each week this season, clearly wasn't there against MI. Read More »

This is Manchester City's dream January midfield including this key target

Dyche, who engineered a deserved win over Liverpool earlier in the season, admitted Burnley's plan had been to make life "as awkward and tough as possible". I'm not a guy who complains so much, believe me. Marney's replacement Scott Arfield teed up Lowton to cross and Sam Vokes' header forced a stop from Bravo in first-half stoppage time. Read More »

Luck returns to full practice work for Indianapolis

Clearance from that doctor is the final step in getting the greenlight to play December 5 against the Jets . For the Colts , quarterback Andrew Luck passed the final stage of the concussion protocol and has been cleared to play.

Kelly Olynyk, Jaylen Brown, and Terry Rozier finished with a combined 18 points and a plus/minus rating of +13.

David Haye Explains How Quickly He Could KO Anthony Joshua


Joshua said, "I have consistently turned to him for advice and guidance so I am really excited to have him in my corner".

MLB Rumors: Chris Sale To Nationals Has 'Legit Chance' Of Happening

The 27-year-old Sale, who has three years and $38 million left on his current deal, is 74-50 with 3.00 ERA in his career. There were indications Monday night it was the White Sox changing course.

The Nationals joined conversations with the White Sox late, but that's no indication of their interest in perennial Cy Young candidate, Chris Sale . Read More »

Ranking reaction: All calm at the top before make-or-break weekend

Here's my opinions on the matter. Saturday marks one of the biggest regular season college football games in several years. Even though MI and Ohio State's rankings each have withstood a loss this season, competition from top teams in other conferences and even their own means the Playoff candidacy of Saturday's losing team likely will end.

Committee picks Alabama, Washington, Ohio State and Clemson

The committee, made up of 12 people with some sort of college athletics or administrative experience, announced the playoff teams along with its final rankings on Sunday.

But if Penn State beat Pitt it would have benefited from playing a hard nonconference schedule. Read More »

The Bulls are now 11-7 and sit in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference behind Cleveland and Toronto. Taj Gibson made his first nine shots and matched his career-high with 26 points and Robin Lopez added 10 points in the post. But on Friday night, who the Bulls were playing did make a difference.

Berry's 2 picks carry Chiefs to 29-28 win over Falcons

The Falcons feature QB Matt Ryan and one of the most prolific groups in the league, among the best in yards gained (third), points (first) and offensive touchdowns (second). While the Kansas City defense will likely have its moments on Sunday, there probably won't be enough of them to derail a high-powered Atlanta offense that is far superior to the one the Chiefs faced in Denver last week.

Virat Kohli climbs to career-best 3rd in ICC Test rankings

England could only delay the inevitable in Mohali , scrambling 236 all out to set India a target of 103 - which they achieved in 20.2 overs to wrap up victory in mid-evening, thanks to a 39-ball 50 from Parthiv Patel (67no).
