FA Cup: City survive Port Vale scare

first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Manchester City survived an early scare to see off Port Vale 4-1 in the FA Cup third round tie at the Etihad Stadium. Much of the pre-match build-up was dominated by Tom Pope’s Twitter jibe at John Stones as the pair came head-to-head, with Stones handed a rare start in place of Nicolas Otamendi. Pep Guardiola named a strong line-up, including David Silva and Sergio Aguero, in his starting XI, while Phil Foden was handed another chance to impress. But it was the League Two side who almost silenced the Etihad Stadium inside 15 seconds when Pope crossed back for Scott Burgess and his well-struck effort was deflected wide. That early chance seemed to give Man City a wake-up call they needed as they began to push back the visitors and found their way through after 19 minutes. Oleksandr Zinchenko decided to strike one from 25 yards out and his low powerful strike took a nick off Leon Legge before nestling in the corner. The FA Cup holders began to dominate proceedings with Foden going close before Silva somehow struck the bar from three yards out. Having spent long spells of the half defending inside their own area, Port Vale hit back with an equaliser – and in some style too. David Amoo raced down the right flank and floated in a superb delivery, and there was Pope to beat Harwood-Bellis to the ball and head past Bravo. But the loud chants from the away end didn’t last for long. City restored their lead just seven minutes later when Foden’s volleyed cross was bundled home by Aguero and after a VAR check for offside, the goal was allowed to stand. Guardiola must have said something at the break because his side came racing out of the blocks with Aguero and Foden both missing golden chances to make it 3-1. VAR played a part once again as Stones fired home from Angelino’s header across the six-yard box, investigating a possible offside. But the replay showed that Taylor Harwood-Bellis, the 17-year-old defender, was onside as he diverted the ball home from a yard out. City were simply going through the motions as they searched for a fourth. And they made it count with a quarter of an hour left when the excellent Foden slotted home from Angelino’s cross to seal a comfortable win for the holders.Tags: FA CupManchester CityNicolas OtamendiPort ValeSergio Aguerolast_img read more

Lambert fined over Chelsea comments

first_imgAston Villa boss Paul Lambert has been fined £8,000 by the Football Association for comments he made in the wake of Aston Villa’s 2-1 Barclays Premier League defeat at Chelsea last month. “The misconduct charge, which Lambert admitted, was that the comments implied the match referee was motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute, in contravention of FA Rule E3 (1).” Lambert clashed with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho in the technical area following the incident and told the media afterwards: “We’ve been done by two decisions that were wrong. “Decisions like that, I don’t think you can miss them, I really don’t. They’re big game-changers. My team never deserved that.” Lambert was furious after Branislav Ivanovic was only booked by referee Kevin Friend for a foul on Christian Benteke – then went on to head home Chelsea’s late winner – and also insisted his side should have had a penalty for an apparent handball by John Terry. The FA said in a statement: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has been fined £8,000 in relation to post-match media comments he made after his side’s game against Chelsea on 21 August 2013. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Trojans hope it all adds up in Minnesota

first_imgAfter two weeks, the jury is still out and the question remains:Which USC team will show up Saturday in Minnesota?Podcast: The Daily Trojan’s sports editors discuss Saturday’s game versus the Golden Gophers.Armed · Sophomore qurterback Matt Barkley has seven touchdown passes through two games this season, almost half of the total he threw in 2009. He leads the Trojans against Minnesota on Saturday looking to go undefeated in non-conference games. – Dieuwertje Kast | Daily TrojanAfter two uneven performances on both sides of the ball, the No. 18 Trojans (2-0) hope to see the explosive offense they showcased against Hawai’i and the stingy defense seen last week against Virginia in the 12:30 p.m. game.The Golden Gophers (1-1) have some questions to answer themselves, coming off a 41-38 loss to FCS opponent South Dakota. Minnesota coach Tim Brewster emphasized his team needed to move on and focus on the visiting Trojans.“It’s a big, physical, athletic football team,” Brewster said on Minnesota’s website. “They’ve got five-star football players across the board on their football team. A great deal of talent.”The Golden Gophers are led by the nation’s sixth-leading rusher in running back Duane Bennett, who has racked up 291 yards and two touchdowns on 48 carries.Minnesota quarterback Adam Weber, in his fourth year starting under center, has completed almost 65 percent of his passes and thrown three touchdowns.“They’re playing really well on offense,” USC coach Lane Kiffin said. “They’re running the ball extremely well, the tailback’s got a ton of yards [and] the quarterback’s rating is great.”Minnesota does not have as much going on defense (see the 41 points let up by South Dakota). Its defense returns only two starters from last year’s 6-7 squad.That could open the door for USC’s offense to have a more Hawai’i-type performance. If so, it will start with the running game. Redshirt junior running back Marc Tyler still leads the Pac-10 in rushing with 221 yards and is looking to bounce back after only 67 yards last week.More action is also expected from freshman running back Dillon Baxter, who made his debut against Virginia, carrying the ball nine times for 49 yards. It will be Baxter’s first road game after missing the Hawai’i game for violating team rules.“It should be a challenge,” Baxter said. “I guess people have been saying away games are pretty loud so we’ll see what happens.”USC’s offense also will need more stellar play from sophomore quarterback Matt Barkley.Despite throwing five touchdowns against Hawai’i, last week might have been Barkley’s more impressive performance considering how often he was forced to elude Virginia’s rush and throw on the run.The one unquestioned constant from USC’s first two games has been penalties. The Trojans lead the nation in the category, with 24 penalties for 240 yards.Kiffin said he would not discuss the issue with the media this week in hopes of taking pressure off his players.Injuries, especially on defense, will also be a concern as the Trojans struggle to stay fresh late into the game.Redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Nick Perry and junior defensive lineman Armond Armstead were limited in practice this week, and it will be a game-time decision as to whether the two play Saturday.Although the trip to Minnesota marks the Trojans’ second road trip of the year, this weekend marks the last one of this length.“This is two long trips in a row,” Kiffin said. “It’s good that we’ve done it before and it’s good that we’ve knocked the two long ones out right away.”The Trojans departed for Minneapolis Thursday after practice. USC has not faced Minnesota since 1980 but has won its last 10 straight contests against Big Ten opponents.last_img read more

This information will be used to update nautical charts, which will improve the safety of navigation and help the island meet its international obligations to the Safety of Life at Sea Convention and sections of the III Code.“More accurate charts can enable larger ships to call, improving efficiency for cargo ships importing and exporting goods and attracting cruise ships – which should have a significant impact on the Jamaican economy,” UKHO said.Jamaica’s need for modern seabed mappingThe survey, which continues until mid-December, follows a Hydrographic Technical Assessment Visit conducted in January 2017, where local stakeholders such as the Maritime Administration, Port Authority and National Land Agency identified a range of activities in Jamaica that were impacted by its need for modern seabed mapping.This work forms part of the CME Program, a program delivered on behalf of the UK Government by the UKHO, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC).The program aims to support the sustainable growth of Commonwealth Small Island Developing States (SIDS) by making the most of their natural economic and environmental resources.The UKHO  says in the future, it hopes to secure funding to help Jamaica build its seabed mapping capabilities, to enable ongoing support to efficiency of trade, cruise tourism and a range of infrastructure developments, as well as improving safety for both human and environmental concerns.For more on Jamaica, click the link: IDB and Jamaica sign multi-million dollar loanlast_img read more

Dodgers complete sweep of Nationals, come home with four-game winning streak

first_imgSign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.When the Dodgers skipped town a week ago, they might have been trailed by angry villagers wielding pikes and torches. They had just been swept in a four-game series by the Cincinnati Reds and were in the throes of a six-game losing streak that would continue in Miami.They return on a four-game winning streak, matching their season-high, having swept a Nationals team that won 13 of 15 games before the Dodgers came to town.“A little bit of success kind of breeds confidence and takes that monkey off your back,” said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, who returned from his wrist injury at the start of this trip. “Get on a roll here, keep the momentum going. I think the confidence is back that they’re going to take a good at-bat every time. Bullpen did another outstanding job, covering a lot of innings this weekend.“I just think that little bit of swag, I guess, is back.”You want swag? Sunday’s starting pitcher Alex Wood even stole a base for the first time in his professional career. Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg was slow to the plate, no one was holding him at first base in the seventh inning so Wood told first-base coach George Lombard he was going. Lombard was “non-committal,” Wood said, probably trying to maintain plausible deniability.“I didn’t know he had the green light,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I was as surprised as anyone. He just went on his own.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error PreviousWashington Nationals’ Juan Soto looks from the dugout during a baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Sunday, May 20, 2018, in Washington.

The Dodgers won 5-4. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)ExpandWASHINGTON, D.C. – The Dodgers returned home from their road trip Sunday night. You might not recognize them.They’re hitting home runs again. Moving runners and hitting with runners on base occasionally. The bullpen has even done its job.And – they’re winning again.Kike’ Hernandez and Yasiel Puig hit two-run home runs Sunday, lifting the Dodgers to a 7-2 victory and completing a three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals.center_img Wood was safe at second but his left hamstring cramped up as he was warming up to pitch the bottom of the seventh and Roberts opted to pull him from the game. It’s probably a good reminder to the rest of the Dodgers not to get too far ahead of themselves with this four-game revival.“Any time you started the way we have it’s nice to come and play a quality team and get a sweep, especially the way we have with the doubleheader – three games in 48 hours,” said Wood, who held the Nationals to three hits in six innings. “It was a big series for us. You know you look for that marquee win or wins in a series against a team like the Nats, a playoff contender. Now you hope you go back home and hopefully turn the corner. I guess we’ll find out this week.”Hernandez was looking to turn a corner of his own. After striking out in his first at-bat against Strasburg Sunday, Hernandez was 5 for 37 (.135) with 14 strikeouts in May.“I think I’ve been the team’s worst hitter this month,” said Hernandez, who has been “working really hard in the cage” to make some changes in his approach that will simplify his swing.He kept it simple in his next at-bat, jumping on a first-pitch fastball from Strasburg in the fifth inning and driving it into the visitors’ bullpen for a two-run home run.“I was just trying to get a hit with a runner on base,” Hernandez said. “I feel like it’s been three months and I haven’t got one since spring training. I was trying to get a hit and used a very strong man’s bat and it went out.”Hernandez identified that very strong man as “my dad” – Chase Utley, who picked the bat for him Sunday.Strong as Puig is, he went without a home run in his first 108 plate appearances this season. His two-run shot in the eighth inning was his fourth homer in his next 25 plate appearances and it gave some breathing room to a bullpen that pitched 15 innings in about 28 hours at Nationals Park. The relief corps that had been a stack of Jenga blocks waiting to collapse on a nightly basis put up zeroes in 14 of those 15 innings.last_img read more
