Chelsea End City’s Unbeaten Run, Liverpool Go Top

first_imgDavid Luiz (right) celebrates scoring in the 2-0 win over Manchester City, Saturday Kyle Walker had a free kick well saved by Kepa Arrizabalaga as City looked for a way back into the game after the break but Chelsea sealed the points after 77 minutes when, from an Eden Hazard corner, David Luiz looped a header beyond Ederson.The win saw the Londoners bounce back from their midweek defeat at Wolves and move up to third in the table.Manchester United returned to winning ways as they saw off bottom side Fulham 4-1 at Old Trafford.Diogo Dalot almost set up Romelu Lukaku as United started on the front foot, but they needed only 13 minutes to break through as Marcus Rashford set up Ashley Young to lash home.Young almost grabbed a second after 25 minutes, but United doubled their lead when Lukaku and Rashford linked to set up Juan Mata before Lukaku tapped in Mata’s cross to all but seal the points before the break.Ander Herrera should have made it four before he brought down Kamara in the area and the Fulham player converted from the spot.The Londoners’ brief hopes of getting into the game were snuffed out when Andre Anguissa fouled Rashford to pick up a second booking, and United got a fourth through Rashford after 82 minutes.Mohamed Salah scored a hat trick as Liverpool eased to a 4-0 win at Bournemouth to return to the top of the Premier League ahead of Manchester City’s trip to Chelsea.Salah struck once before half-time and twice after it, with a Steve Cook own goal in between, as Jurgen Klopp’s side recorded the most comfortable of victories.Salah appeared offside when Asmir Begovic could only block Firmino’s effort from the edge of the box but followed up to fire past the keeper from 10 yards and then doubled the lead after a fine individual run.Andy Robertson’s cross cannoned in off the unfortunate Cook to make it 3-0 before Salah had the final word with 13 minutes remaining, running in behind Cook and dancing round Begovic before steering a nonchalant finish away from two defenders on the line.A late goal by Lucas Torreira gave Arsenal a 1-0 win over Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium. The Terriers frustrated Arsenal in the opening stages but the home side sparked into life as the game approached the half-hour and were almost rewarded when Alexandre Lacazette fired over after Matteo Guendouzi had created the chance.Lacazette thought he had opened the scoring shortly before half-time but was flagged offside, and then Jonas Lossl made a stunning save from Torreira as a first half featuring six yellow cards came to an end.Unai Emery opted to make a double change at half-time, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Lacazette making way for Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and was rewarded when Torreira produced an overhead kick from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s cross to seal the points.West Ham continued their excellent form with a dramatic 3-2 win over Crystal Palace at the London Stadium. Palace needed only six minutes to take the lead when James Tomkins guided a free kick into a dangerous area and James McArthur steered home.West Ham almost levelled when a Lucas Perez shot whizzed just wide, but they could have been two down when Luka Milivojevic hit the bar with a free kick after Andros Townsend was fouled.Andy Carroll replaced Perez as the Hammers made a half-time change, and the home side levelled through a superb Robert Snodgrass strike from the edge of the box.They took the lead on the hour when Javier Hernandez reacted fastest to a rebound before Felipe Anderson made it 3-1 — but Jeffrey Schlupp gave the visitors renewed hope when he struck after 76 minutes.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Chelsea scored in each half to beat Manchester City 2-0 at Stamford Bridge yesterday, inflicting the first defeat of the season on the reigning champions and preventing them from going back to the top of the Premier League.Pep Guardiola’s side had the bulk of possession and chances in the opening period, with Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane spurning opportunities, but found themselves a goal down at the break.In the final minute of the half — and with their first attempt on target — Maurizio Sarri’s side took the lead as N’Golo Kante blasted home from Eden Hazard’s pass.last_img read more

Metal concert facing obstacles

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventBut Ricardo Bobdillia, manager of Rome Fine Dining, said festival organizers approached the club about the event, but no written deal was struck. Besides, the club can legally hold a maximum of 750 people, he added. “I don’t know what he \ is thinking,” Bobdillia said. “We only have a 750 capacity. The Fire Department would shut us down so quick. What would we do with all those people on the streets?” Formerly called Ibizas, Rome Fine Dining lost its permit to sell alcohol last fall, after city officials cited violations of the former nightclub’s operating license and complaints about late-night fights in the club’s parking lot. “We already have problems,” Bobdillia said. “We’re not crazy.” Assistant City Manager Nancy Mendez said the concert might not be allowable under city codes, and officials at City Hall are now researching the matter. WHITTIER – Tickets are selling briskly for a two-day heavy metal festival at Rome Fine Dining in Uptown Whittier, featuring more than 40 bands and expected to draw up to 2,000 fans per day. There’s just one problem: The club’s owners say they never contracted the event. The First Annual California Metal Fest is scheduled for May 13 and May 14, with a warm-up day May 12, said promoter Ashley Avildsen of E.E. Booking. “It’s definitely happening,” Avildsen said. “We’re looking at whether or not it’s allowable,” Mendez said. “\ is currently operating as a restaurant. The advertising is made up to look as if it’s concert only. “They’re allowed to have live entertainment in connection with a restaurant,” she added. “They’re not permitted to have a concert venue.” But word of the heavy metal concert is already spreading among metal fans through the popular online network, where tickets for the event are being sold at $25 apiece. Avildsen said one of the last remaining details is to secure the Uptown venue. “It’s just a matter of not giving them the deposit yet and only because we couldn’t get down there,” he said. The concert had been originally scheduled at the National Orange Show Events Center, but the venue was changed to Rome Fine Dining due to bad publicity surrounding riots that occurred at the center during a British punk rock festival last month. “That was a punk rock festival, not to be confused with heavy metal,” Avildsen said. “People often lump them all into one when they are completely different – just because they may wear black jeans and T-shirts. “This is a smaller event and will feature some local metal bands, some Christian bands as well as some top bands that have played at the Ozzfest, like Darkest Hour.” He added that security personnel and metal detectors will be on site to ensure no problems arise. “It’s a great opportunity for local bands because in Friday’s battle of the bands, the winner will get to open for the main stage on Saturday,” he said. “At the end of the day, yes, they’re all heavy metal and hard core, but parents can be confident that their kids will be safe.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

South Africa beat Pakistan 4-1 in ODIs

first_img12 November 2013 South Africa wrapped up a 4-1 one-day international series victory over Pakistan with an emphatic 117-run win in in Sharjah on Monday. There were encouraging signs during the series that the Proteas have put their sub-standard one-day form of earlier this year behind them. Refreshingly, the series was played on wickets that offered the bowlers something, unlike so much of the limited overs fare nowadays that heavily favours batsmen and results in slog fests. There were no totals during the series that challenged the 300-run mark, but good batting was rewarded, and AB de Villiers’ unbeaten 115 in the fifth ODI was a wonderful example of this. De Villiers’ knock took him past 6 000 runs in ODIs, the fastest South African to achieve the mark and the third fastest to the milestone of all time, behind only Sir Viv Richards and Sourav Ganguly.Needed application His innings demonstrated the application needed in the 50 overs a side game. It was neatly split into two halves, with De Villiers circumspect and cautious in the first half of his innings, followed by a stunning array of shots and innovation in the second half, once he had played himself in. De Villiers was one of only two batsmen to score centuries in the series. Quinton de Kock scored the other, an impressive knock of 112 at the top of the order in South Africa’s 28-run victory in the fourth ODI. It also made him, at the age of 20 years and 326 days, the youngest South African to score an ODI century. Some concerns still remain about the consistency of the South African batting, but the team’s totals were consistent and between 259 and 268 in the last three ODIs on challenging surfaces.Outstanding bowling While the Proteas displayed some batting frailties, the bowlers adjusted admirably to the pitches in the United Arab Emirates and were outstanding. This is best underlined by the fact that they bowled Pakistan out in all five matches. What the bowlers also proved is that the transition from world class test bowler to world class ODI bowler is not a big jump. World class remains world class, no matter the format. Dale Steyn played in only two of the five matches, but he played a decisive role in both. In the third ODI, despite taking only 1 for 31 in his eight overs, he wrested the initiative away from Pakistan, slowing down their scoring and putting the batsmen under pressure, which ultimately led to a convincing 68-run victory. In the next match, a 28-run win, he delivered a career-best return of 5 for 25 as Pakistan fell from 228 for 5 to 238 all out.Vernon Philander Vernon Philander, a man considered as a test bowler only by the selectors for so long, came into the team for the fifth and final ODI and asked tough questions of the Pakistanis. He removed two of the top three batsmen in order, caught the other, and finished with figures of 2 for 23 in eight overs. While the recognised test stars showed their worth to the team, all-rounder Ryan McLaren continued to enhance his status in the limited overs side. He played a number of useful innings lower down the batting order and removed nine batsmen with his bowling to match Imran Tahir as the top wicket-taker in the South African line-up. Leg-spinner Tahir, with his return to form, reminded South African supporters of the fantastic weapon he can be with his varied bowling in limited overs matches. He was superb in the 2011 Cricket World Cup in India and in similar conditions he was again very good. South Africa showed a huge improvement over their performances in Sri Lanka in July, when they went down to the hosts by four matches to one and were, frankly, poor, suffering some big losses. Top test players The Pakistan series also made clear the importance of the Proteas’ top test performers as one-day players. Without some of the team’s leading players, they flopped in the ICC Champions Trophy in England in June and followed that up with the tepid showing in Sri Lanka. On that subject, Jacques Kallis, who has made himself available for the 2015 Cricket World Cup, needs to see more action. For the first time in a very long time, he looked out of sorts in the Pakistan test series, and he did not play in the ODI series. The great man needs to play himself back into form because Kallis in form is a weapon that is hard to match. For the Proteas to excel in the 2015 Cricket World Cup and to win it for the first time, there is going to have to be greater use made of the team’s top test players, like Kallis and Steyn, in the ODI game. They’re match winners and they produce the kind of performances that make the difference in the 50-over game.last_img read more

Brandon Monebrake, May 22

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We got six inches of rain and then it dried up and the ground got as hard as concrete in some places. Then we got four-tenths one night and everything we thought we were going to replant started coming up. That rain saved a lot of corn.We ended up getting six to eight-tenths last week. It was just enough. The dirt has been working up great. It was just dry enough and just wet enough last week. We got a tenth last night. Our replant goes down everyday because more of the crops keep coming up. Last week there were about 10 acres of the 300 we planted before the wet and cold weather that we thought needed to be replanted. Every day more has been coming up and surprising us more.We think if you feel like you need to rotary hoe something you should just go replant it. We don’t have one and don’t like doing it. There have been a lot of people around us turning the seed off on their planters and running them right down the row.There was some really yellow corn down the road and it is as green as can be now. It looks good and all of our corn looks great. We had some beans planted early and they came up and look great too. We had about 120 acres of beans coming up yesterday. We are very happy with the way things are looking right now. We have 80 acres of corn left to plant and we are hoping to finish tonight. We have 900 acres or of beans so to go and we’ll hit them hard and hopefully have them done in a week or so.Saturday night we had the Matt Calland Memorial Pull and we drove through rain all the way home from Champaign County. We got first place.last_img read more

Tejashwi Yadav breaks silence: ‘I am very much here’

first_imgLeader of the Opposition in Bihar Assembly Tejashwi Yadav on Saturday ended speculation over his “prolonged absence” from the State with a tweet that said he was undergoing long-delayed treatment for a “ligament and ACL injury”.He said he was “very much here” and would continue to fight with “renewed commitment on everyday life issues of the poor”.His absence from State politics after the crushing defeat of the Rashtriya Janata Dal in the recently held Lok Sabha poll had invited jibes from ruling NDA leaders over the past several days.Earlier, BJP MLA Nitin Navin said, “Such a tragedy took place in the State when over 150 children died in Muzaffarpur district and the Leader of the Opposition was absent from the scene. He was not present even when the monsoon session of the State Assembly began on Friday.”Leaders of the BJP’s alliance partner JD(U) also took potshots at Mr. Yadav’s “sudden disappearance”.Rabri retortsOn Friday, when journalists asked his mother and former Chief Minister Rabri Devi about Mr. Yadav’s whereabouts, she said: “Aapke ghar mein hain (He is in your home).” She later explained that her son was not “hiding” from anyone. “He is doing the work that is expected of him,” she said.On Saturday, Mr. Yadav tweeted: “Friends! For last few weeks I was busy undergoing treatment for my long delayed ligament & ACL injury. However, I’m amused to see political opponents as well as a section of media cooking up spicy stories.”“We are accountable to people who look for a socialist-secular and social justice alternative in us and wish to assure that we are very much here and the fight is on… recent developments helped me study, scrutinize, analyze and appraise the things in a different way,” he wrote in another tweet.“Constantly following up the untimely loss of hundreds of poor kids due to AES… asked party workers, leaders to visit affected families without getting into Photo-OP and MPs to raise it in Parliament & that’s why PM responded. My Dear Bihar! I am very much here (sic),” said a third tweet.last_img read more

10 months agoSouthampton boss Hasenhuttl won’t write off Forster

first_imgSouthampton boss Hasenhuttl won’t write off Forsterby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl hasn’t yet wrote off Fraser Forster.The Mirror says Hasenhuttl is weighing up bringing goalkeeper Forster in from the cold as he bids to assess all the players he has inherited at third-bottom Saints.Forster joined Southampton in 2014 for £10million from Celtic weeks after being selected in England’s World Cup squad and nailed down the No.1 spot. But he hasn’t played since December 2017, when Mauricio Pellegrino was manager, after losing his place following a dip in form.The 6ft 7in, six-cap former Newcastle trainee was replaced as first choice by Alex McCarthy, who retained the role throughout Mark Hughes’ nine-month reign and then for the first five games under Hasenhuttl.The Austrian then used Southampton’s last two games, against Chelsea and Derby, to run the rule over England Under-21 stopper Angus Gunn.
