first_img BURNLEY 0, ARSENAL 1 The two minutes of injury time had almost elapsed at Turf Moor when Alexis Sanchez received a short corner and sent over a cross that Theo Walcott flicked on. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain appeared to get a touch to the ball, which reared up off the hand of Laurent Koscielny unintentionally and squeezed over the line. The match marked 20 years since Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger officially took charge of Arsenal and a fifth straight league win lifted his team to third place two points behind City. LEICESTER 0, SOUTHAMPTON 0 MANCHESTER, England (AP): Manchester City’s winning start to the English Premier League is over – and the title favourites might just have seen close up their biggest rivals for the trophy. Producing a clinic in high-octane pressing, Tottenham hounded City into submission in a 2-0 victory at White Hart Lane that consigned Pep Guardiola to his first loss in 12 games. Six of those matches had come in the Premier League and had been won at a canter. It was the kind of all-round performance that Spurs produced for large spells of last season under Mauricio Pochettino before collapsing late on in their pursuit of eventual champions Leicester. That was the first time Spurs contended for the league title in a generation and they are proving it wasn’t just a one-off. After seven games, second-placed Tottenham are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League, still haven’t conceded a goal in open play, and are now just one point behind City. In a dominant first-half display, Tottenham went ahead through Aleksandar Kolarov’s own goal in the ninth minute, before Dele Alli added a second as City’s defence was overwhelmed by the home team’s energy and movement. It could have been worse for City: Erik Lamela had a second-half penalty saved for Spurs in the second half. City’s much-lauded attack failed to score for the first time this season and their defence looked suspect, like it did in the 3-3 draw at Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday. There are finally some cracks in City’s teams for their title rivals to cling to. Manchester United couldn’t take advantage, only drawing 1-1 at home to struggling Stoke, but Arsenal scraped a 1-0 win at Burnley, thanks to a scrambled goal with virtually the last touch of the game. It might all be about the Champions League for Leicester this season. This draw means Leicester have won just two of the opening seven games of their Premier League title defence. In their first-ever Champions League campaign, the Foxes have won both of their games the latest coming against two-time European champions Porto on Tuesday. Southampton created the better chances at King Power stadium, with in-form striker Charlie Austin hitting the post early on and wasting a one-on-one chance in the second half. MANCHESTER UNITED 1, STOKE 1 After opening with three straight victories, United have won only one of their last four games in the league and are already playing catchup. Joe Allen earned a point for Stoke, scoring an 82nd-minute equaliser following a rare mistake by David de Gea. The United goalkeeper fumbled a long-range shot. Jon Walters scooped the loose ball against the bar before it bounced down for Allen to smash home from close range. United took the lead in the 69th through Anthony Martial’s curling strike, two minutes after he came on as a substitute. United are sixth with 13 points, five behind City at the top. Stoke are still waiting for a first win of the season, but have ended their 13-game losing streak at Old Trafford, stretching back 36 years.last_img read more

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC):Twenty20 star Carlos Brathwaite has joined reigning champions Sydney Thunder for the remainder of the Big Bash League campaign, replacing West Indies teammate Andre Russell, who has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.The 28-year-old Barbadian, who was vacationing overseas recently, is expected to link up with the franchise shortly, but there was no confirmation on if he would be ready for Sunday’s clash against Hobart Hurricanes at Blundstone Arena.”Carlos is dedicated to learning and advancing his game. With both bat and ball, he’s a very skilled T20 cricketer,” said Thunder coach Paddy Upton.”I’ve had the pleasure of working with him for a season in the IPL and he really is the highest quality individual. “He’s a top-quality cricketer and person, which ticks the two big boxes when it comes to Thunder recruiting players.”Brathwaite came to prominence during the last year’s Twenty20 World Cup in India, when he lashed sixes off the first four deliveries off seamer Ben Stokes in the last over of the final against England to propel West Indies to a dramatic win.He is a hard-hitting lower-order batsman and steady seamer, and completes his all-round game as a sharp fielder.Brathwaite is a member of both the Windies Test and one-day international sides, and also captains their T20 squad.He replaces Russell who, on Wednesday pulled up with an injured hamstring during a game against Melbourne Stars and had to be stretchered off.Thunder announced yesterday that the Jamaican would be out of action for up to six weeks, ruling him out of the remainder of the Big Bash.last_img read more

first_imgThere were boos and cheers at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium on Wednesday night, as Tsetsi Davis, one of the favourites to win the 2017 version of the Wray and Nephew Contender title, was only able to gain a split-decision victory over underdog Canadian David Leblond. Judges Keith Brown 49-46 and Clifford Brown 48-47, voted for Davis, while the other judge, Canadian Benoit Roussel, voted 48-47 for Leblond. Davis has had a rocky passage in the series since its inception and has been to the finals twice and lost. He has declared 2017 to be his year, but it too has a rocky start. His troubles started at the weigh-in on Tuesday afternoon, when he failed to make the weight limit of 154 pounds, even after being allowed two hours to do so. The extra 2 1/2 pounds cost him his purse money for the fight. Contractually, it was agreed that failure to make the weight meant a US$500 payment to the opponent, and Leblond insisted on this clause being adhered to. Davis was stoic before the fight. “It was my fault and I had to pay. This is even more incentive now for me to win the $2-million first prize,” he said. Leblond was very confident before the fight and from the first bell he took the fight to Davis, who boasted a 16-5 record, and it was non-stop action until the final bell. The announcement of the decision brought cheers from the Davis camp and boos from spectators who supported the underdog. It was indeed a close fight and actually came down to the scores in round three. Judge Keith Brown, with a 49-46 scorecard, was off the mark, but judges Clifford Brown and Roussel had identical scores in rounds 1, 2, 4 and 5. In round three, Brown voted for Davis, while Roussel voted for Leblond, and that made the difference in the outcome of the fight, as Davis won 2-1. Both men told The Gleaner that they believed that they had won, and Leblond, who only speaks French, said through his trainer Patrice Trudeau that although he was disappointed, he will move on. Trudeau said he was pleased with how Leblond had performed. “Now you see why he cannot get fights in Canada. However, he has a fight in June, and tonight will do him a world of good. I would like him to fight Davis again, though. It would be another great match.” NON-STOP ACTIONlast_img read more

Position: Pakistan trail by 140 runs with seven first innings wickets intact. Toss: West Indies. Umpires: Richard Kettleborough, Bruce Oxenford; TV – Richard Illingworth. BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC): Three wickets in the final session helped the West Indies claw their way back after three earlier blemishes had put Pakistan firmly in control of the second Test at Kensington Oval yesterday. Replying to West Indies’ first innings of 312 all out, Pakistan finished the second day of the pivotal contest on 172 for three 140 runs adrift of the lead. Prolific opener Azhar Ali was already in sight of triple figures unbeaten on 81 and was partnered by captain Misbah-ul-Haq on seven. Right-handed opener Ahmed Shehzad lived a charmed life for his 70, benefitting from three chances before becoming one of two wickets to fall to leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo who finished with two for 53. The Caribbean side had earlier squandered the opportunity to build a sizeable first innings lead when they lost their last four wickets for 26 runs to be dismissed for 312, 65 minutes before lunch. Disappointingly, neither overnight batsmen – century-maker Roston Chase nor captain Jason Holder – managed to add to their scores, falling within the first nine balls of the morning. In the 14 overs available before lunch, West Indies muffed their only chance to get an early breakthrough as Pakistan worked their way to 36 without loss at the break. Shehzad had made three with the score on five when he chipped fast bowler Shannon Gabriel loosely to mid-on where Vishual Singh was slow off the mark and grassed the low offering in the third over. West Indies also had only themselves to blame in the following session as Shehzad was twice let-off through no-balls as he and Azhar put on 155 for the first wicket. Pakistan reached tea safely on 106 without loss and they batted through the next hour without alarm to further frustrate West Indies. Azhar, who completed his 26th Test half-century in the fourth over before tea when he swept Bishoo to the square boundary, has so far faced 193 deliveries in a shade over five hours at the crease and counted seven fours. Shehzad, unbeaten at tea on 40, reached his fourth Test half-century 20 minutes after the resumption and had faced 191 balls in just over four hours and struck eight fours, when his luck finally ran out. An hour from the close, he prodded forward to one from Bishoo which spun, took the edge and carried low to slip where Shai Hope grasped the offering. His dismissal triggered a slide for Pakistan where three wickets tumbled in the space of 23 runs. In the following over, Babar Azam got a leading edge back to Gabriel to fall without scoring at 156 for two and 20 balls later, veteran outstanding right-hander Younis Khan also fell for nought, pulling a long hop from Bishoo to Gabriel at short mid-wicket.last_img read more

He was named the league’s MVP in 2011 while with the Bulls. Rose sat out the entire 2012-13 season following knee surgery.Because the Cavaliers are so far over the salary cap, they could only offer Rose a one-year deal.
