  • Premier League Week 29: Spurs, Arsenal draw as Man United, Wolves, Man City all win

    first_img–Source: talkSPORT Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League after edging past Bournemouth.Elsewhere, Manchester United beat Southampton at Old Trafford in a five-goal thriller.Brighton and Wolves also picked up wins at home while Burnley succumbed to a heavy defeat to Crystal Palace.BOURNEMOUTH 0-1 MANCHESTER CITYManchester City returned to the top of the Premier League but lost Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones to injury following a 1-0 success at Bournemouth.Substitute Riyad Mahrez secured City’s fifth successive top-flight win with a low strike early in the second half after coming off the bench to replace the stricken De Bruyne.With title rivals Liverpool not in action until Sunday’s Merseyside derby against Everton, City moved two points clear at the summit, albeit having played a game more.But victory on the south coast, which was wrapped up without the hosts producing a shot at goal, came at a significant cost to Pep Guardiola’s side.Creative midfielder De Bruyne limped off in first-half stoppage time with a suspected hamstring problem, before England defender Stones also exited prematurely minutes after the restart.BRIGHTON 1-0 HUDDERSFIELDBrighton grabbed their first Premier League victory of 2019 at the eighth attempt with a 1-0 win over Huddersfield.The victory halted a slide that had threatened to drag the Seagulls from mid-table at Christmas into the bottom three.Substitute Florin Andone scored the only goal after 79 minutes of a nervy encounter with his fourth league goal of the season to give his side three points that they just about deserved for an improved second-half display.Huddersfield had won for the first time in 15 matches in midweek, but back-to-back victories proved beyond them. They are without an away league goal in 452 minutes since Mathias Jorgensen scored in their 3-1 loss at Manchester United on Boxing Day.BURNLEY 1-3 CRYSTAL PALACECrystal Palace moved eight points clear of the Premier League relegation zone with a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.The teams began the day locked together on 30 points but Palace had much the better of things under grey Lancashire skies, with Michy Batshuayi and Wilfried Zaha adding to an own goal from Phil Bardsley.Ashley Barnes pulled one back late on for Burnley but it was little consolation.MANCHESTER UNITED 3-2 SOUTHAMPTONPaul Pogba missed a stoppage time penalty but it didn’t matter as Manchester United claimed a 3-2 victory against Southampton in a five-goal thriller.Yan Valery’s 25-yard piledriver stunned Old Trafford into silence midway through the first half but Andreas Pereira drew United level seven minutes into the second half with a fine curling effort.Pereira then teed up Romelu Lukaku as United retook the lead on the hour and the Belgian would have the final say – after James Ward-Prowse equalised with a sublime free-kick – with a fantastic finish in the last minute.Paul Pogba saw his injury-time spot-kick saved but United held on.WOLVES 2-0 CARDIFFQuickfire goals from Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez piled the relegation pressure on Cardiff as slick Wolves claimed a routine 2-0 win.The duo struck in the first half to ensure the hosts broke their Premier League points record with the victory.Wolves sit seventh on 43 points as they continue to chase Europe, having lost just four times in their last 19 games in all competitions, reaching the FA Cup quarter finals in the process.Cardiff have now shipped 10 goals in their last three games and also lost Sol Bamba to injury.TOTTENHAM 1-1 ARSENALPierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a stoppage time penalty saved by Hugo Lloris as Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal battled out an eventful draw at Wembley.Harry Kane became the all-time top scorer in north London derbies after equalising from the spot – and his effort was enough to earn Tottenham’s first draw in 33 matches.It was the Englishman’s ninth goal in nine Premier League games against the Gunners, but Lloris’ stop was even more important as it ensured Spurs avoided three successive defeats, which would have left Tottenham’s chances of sealing a place in the top four in serious jeopardy.Both penalty decisions were soft, with Kane appearing offside, while Unai Emery’s side finished with 10 men after Lucas Torreira was sent off in stoppage time for a foul on Danny Rose.last_img read more

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Respect your elders. But hammer his fastball.The Dodgers found the senior slinging of 45-year-old Bartolo Colon to their liking, pounding him for eight runs on nine hits, including three more home runs, in the first four innings of a 12-5 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.The win was the Dodgers’ eighth in their last 10 games – a stretch during which they have identified their starting pitcher each day like game shows call contestants out of the audience – and 18 of their past 24.“That ‘hitting-is-contagious’ thing is real,” said Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger, who was on base four times including an RBI double in a seven-run fourth inning. “We have a really deep lineup. I wouldn’t want to face us. Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day It is. But no one expected it to play out with Muncy leading the team in home runs. But his second-inning solo launch off Colon was his team-high 13th – despite not joining the major-league club until mid-April and bringing with him a major-league resume’ that included all of five home runs in 215 previous big-league at-bats.“A grinder, a guy who is all in and will do whatever it takes for us to win,” Roberts said of his expectations when Muncy arrived from Triple-A on April 17. “I didn’t expect to see the consistent slug and the ability to barrel baseballs. This guy, he knows where the barrel’s at.“I just didn’t appreciate it. I didn’t know the player. In spring training, obviously it was a small sample. But the more you see him … there’s a lot to like.”Sign 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.There’s a lot to see of Colon, too and he has become the Don Quixote, assaulting the windmills of age – and fitness – in the image of a beer-guzzling fan who somehow found his way onto the field. Tuesday, he was matched against an opposing starting pitcher who was nine months old when Colon made his major-league debut. In the home dugout, the manger was a teammate from another century.Colon has remarkably held back the hands of time, throwing his fastball 80 percent of the time even though it has lost 5 mph since he and Roberts were Cleveland Indians together. But these Dodgers feast on fastballs the way Colon … well, appears to have feasted on a lot of things over the years.They put up three runs in the second inning on a walk to Bellinger, a two-out double just short of clearing the fence by Puig and a two-run home run by Pederson.Related Articles For Pederson, it was one of seven home runs in his last 26 plate appearances after he hit just one home run in his first 151 trips to the plate this season.The Dodgers put the game away with a seven-run fourth inning that included a two-run home run by Puig – who had no home runs in his first 100 at-bats this season but now has eight in his last 77 at-bats. Yasmani Grandal drove in two runs with a single, Bellinger one with his double.The smoke billowing from the Rangers’ team ERA provided cover for Ferguson, who looked at least somewhat more at ease in his second big-league start. Ferguson lasted only 1-2/3 innings in his debut last week. This time, he was only asked to go four and did that ably enough before Roberts let the bullpen coast to the finish.“Caleb was better today,” Roberts said, non-committal when asked if Ferguson will remain in the Dodgers’ needy rotation. “I think with Caleb – he’s still green. He’s still learning the league and learning himself.“It’s in there. Caleb can pitch. He competes really well.” Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ center_img Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury “I think winning is contagious too. We finally got that monkey off our back.”That monkey was sitting comfortably when the Dodgers bottomed out 10 games under .500 (16-26) in mid-May. Since then, they have outhomered their opponents 46-19 and experienced a real June boom. The Dodgers lead all of MLB this month in nearly every offensive category, including runs scored (84 in 10 games) and home runs (29).Joc Pederson, Max Muncy and Yasiel Puig each homered in Tuesday’s win. Pederson (7) and Muncy (6) lead MLB in home runs this month.“It’s hard to explain homers. But, gosh, you see what Joc’s done this month, Max has done essentially all year,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I think obviously they’re elevating the baseball, squaring it up, taking good swings, having good at-bats. I think across the board. Even the ability to use the opposite-field gap, take a walk, hit a line drive – I just think we’re taking a lot of good swings, grinding at-bats.“We’re built sort of on slugging, guys who can take the walk, identify strike from ball and it’s kind of playing out that way right now.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

  • Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus

Ronaldo, along with several other top players in the country, has been accused of tax fraud, with authorities saying the government was defrauded of 14.7 million euros ($17 million) from 2011-14. Unconfirmed media reports last month said Ronaldo had agreed to pay a fine of 18.8 million euros ($22 million).In Italy, a new law caps tax on income generated from abroad at 100,000 euros ($117,000) per year for residents who have paid their taxes in other countries for at least nine of the last 10 years.Other players targeted by Spanish tax authorities in recent years include Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano and Luka Modric. Former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, now at Manchester United, was also investigated.Ronaldo is currently on vacation in Greece following Portugal’s elimination from the World Cup. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli flew out Tuesday to meet the 33-year-old forward.ADVERTISEMENT View comments MOST READ LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Trump assembles a made-for-TV impeachment defense teamcenter_img In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ “Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proven to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the greatest eras in the history of our club and of world soccer,” Real Madrid said in a statement.“In addition to the titles he won, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and determination,” Madrid added. “For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of its greatest symbols and a unique reference for the next generations. Real Madrid will always be his home.”Ronaldo signed a five-year deal with Madrid in 2016, saying he wanted to end his career at the club. But he has also publicly expressed his discontentment about being jeered at times by some Madrid fans at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.Ronaldo was also moved by the Juventus fans for giving him a standing ovation after he scored a spectacular goal against the Italian club at the Allianz Stadium in the Champions League quarterfinals last season.“I gave a lot of thought to this and I know that the time has come for a new era,” Ronaldo said. “I’m leaving, but this jersey, this shield and the Santiago Bernabeu will always feel as something that is mine wherever I go.”The signing broke the Serie A record, which Juventus set two years ago when it paid Napoli 90 million euros (then $99 million) for Gonzalo Higuain.Ronaldo made his debut for Sporting Lisbon when he was 17. His crossover dribble was already famous when Alex Ferguson brought him to Manchester United ahead of the 2003-04 season and gave him the No. 7 shirt of the recently departed David Beckham.He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup.Ronaldo led Portugal to its first major title at the European Championship two years ago in France. He helped the Portuguese team reach the semifinals in his first World Cup in 2006.Portugal was eliminated by Uruguay in the round of 16 of this year’s tournament in Russia. Ronaldo scored four goals to take his tally to 85 for his country and break Ferenc Puskas’ record as Europe’s all-time leading international scorer.
