EPL: Wolves boost Europa League bid, Sheffield Utd fall to Everton

first_img “The idea of improvement and the building process makes sense and today we achieved two more points than last season with one game to go,” Nuno said. “Sunday’s game is very difficult but let’s prepare well and compete.” At Bramall Lane, Sheffield United were handed a second successive defeat, ending their bid to cap a superb first season back in the top-flight by earning a European berth. Carlo Ancelotti’s team won it in the 46th minute when Brazil forward Richarlison met Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free-kick with a glancing header for his 15th goal of the season. Chris Wilder’s eighth placed side are five points behind Wolves and four points adrift of Tottenham with one game left. “I’m disappointed for the players today. But what you try and do in a season is get your club to overachieve and we have ridiculously overachieved,” Wilder said. “Top six should never have been in the equation from the minute we set foot into the division. There are a lot of clubs that would swap places with us.” Wolves boost Europa League bid, Sheffield Utd fall to EvertonThe teams who finish fifth and sixth are certain to reach next season’s Europa League.If the FA Cup winners finish in the top six, then seventh place would also qualify for the Europa League.Arsenal, who face third-placed Chelsea in the FA Cup final, are currently 10th, meaning Tottenham are in danger of a first season without Europe competition since 2009-10.– Brighton avoid the drop –At the Amex Stadium, Brighton got the point they needed to be mathematically certain of avoiding relegation.Graham Potter’s side were already virtually certain to stay up before the match because their goal difference is far superior to third-from-bottom Aston Villa – the only team in the relegation zone who could have caught them.Brighton have won just two of their last 17 league games, but ending a run of three successive home defeats moved them seven points clear of the bottom three, with Villa having just two games left.“At this stage of the season we can talk about performances but it’s about getting the points you need,” Potter said.“It’s been a unique season in what we’ve had to deal with.

Borini set for early return

first_img Press Association Liverpool forward Fabio Borini may return from a shoulder operation before the end of the season but it seems likely defender Martin Kelly will be held back until the summer. He added: “At the moment, it’s looking pretty positive for Fabio that he could be back ahead of schedule and maybe make the end of the season.” There are more issues to be taken into consideration with the type of injury Kelly suffered, which usually has about a nine-month lay-off period. And while the 22-year-old has made such good progress the temptation may be to give him a run out before the end of the campaign, Driscoll stressed that may not be in the defender’s best interests. “Martin is doing extremely well; he’s probably at the late stage of his rehab,” he told Liverpoolfc.com. “We’ll probably look to prioritise getting him back for pre-season 110% fit – 10% fitter, stronger and quicker, more powerful and agile than he was previously. “He’ll probably be in a position where it will be tempting to put him into games again this season but it will show class and quality if we make sure that he’s in a very strong position so he can fly next season. “Martin should look at what Steven Gerrard has achieved this season (playing every minute of every Premier League match so far): people would never have considered that he would be available for a full campaign. “He should take great hope from that and know that if he continues to work and continues his professionalism, hopefully the future is bright. We hope to give him every chance.” center_img Borini sustained a dislocation in February but is progressing well, however, Kelly’s comeback from anterior cruciate ligament surgery in September will not be rushed. “Fabio Borini was outside for the first time today so he’s starting that progression – passing balls, running and doing ball work,” said head of performance Glen Driscoll. “He’s due to be probably another six weeks from this point on. The injury he’s had is normally eight to 12 weeks. He’s quite a quick rehabilitator.” last_img read more

Ulster claim vital win

first_imgUlster survived a strong rally from Benetton Treviso to record a vital 24-20 victory in the Guinness PRO12 at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo. Neil Doak’s side were low on confidence having won only one of their last four games but Ulster dominated the first half as they crossed the Treviso try-line three times. Paddy Jackson converted his own sixth-minute try and Ulster continued to pile up the points despite wing Craig Gilroy being shown a yellow card after 10 minutes. Press Associationcenter_img Jackson landed a penalty and Ruan Pienaar soon crossed for his first try of the season which was also converted by the accurate Ulster outside-half. When Tommy Bowe went in for another converted try Ulster had scored 24 points in as many minutes and were seemingly on their way to a convincing bonus point victory. But Treviso soon discovered the spirit which had brought them back-to-back wins over Zebre and had them chasing a third successive victory for the first time since December 2012. Outside-half Sam Christie’s try two minutes before the break gave Treviso hope before replacement Francesco Minto crossed and Jayden Hayward added his second conversion to reduce the deficit to 10 points. Hayward kicked two penalties in the final quarter but Treviso were unable to get the try which would have capped a remarkable comeback. last_img read more

Jezki has Fly in sights again

first_img “We got nearer than we’ve ever got to Hurricane Fly (at Leopardstown) over Christmas. We were only half a length behind him. We’ll make a race of it and it will be a great spectacle for everybody that comes racing. “There was never going to be any easy races for him this season. He was always going to be taking on Hurricane Fly and he is a formidable opponent.” While Harrington is delighted with her stable star’s condition, she believes he will not hit his peak until defending his crown at Cheltenham in March. “He’s pretty close to 100 per cent but is always a better horse in the spring. He comes to life then, and better ground certainly helps. March is the day we really want him,” said the trainer. Fiscal Focus is a fascinating participant for trainer Des McDonogh, carrying the colours of leading Flat handler Jim Bolger. The four-year-old struck twice on the level when in Bolger’s care last year and made a most impressive start to his career over jumps for McDonogh when winning a Grade Two juvenile race at Leopardstown over Christmas. He is thrown in at the deep end on his second appearance over hurdles, with Mikey Fogarty keeping the ride. “It’s great to be riding in a race like this. I’m really looking forward to it. You’d have to be impressed with his last run for his first run over hurdles and we’ll see what happens on Sunday,” said Fogarty. “Hurricane Fly is a remarkable horse. He’s a legend and he still looks the best around at the minute.” Last season’s Triumph Hurdle winner Tiger Roll represents Gordon Elliott, Bryan Cooper and Gigginstown House Stud, but was well beaten in the Ryanair Hurdle at the track last month. Aidan O’Brien’s Plinth completes the six-strong field. The prospect of better ground gives Jessica Harrington hope that Jezki can turn the tables on Hurricane Fly in the BHP Insurances Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown on Sunday. Last season’s Champion Hurdle winner has had to play second fiddle to Willie Mullins’ evergreen record-breaker on both his outings this campaign. “He did a nice bit of work on Tuesday and is in good form. It would be great to get nice ground and no rain. I see Willie is looking for rain, so we all want different things! They will have some new ground, which is great,” said Harrington. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Coleman improves after disappointing in season opener

first_imgDaJuan Coleman is placing most of his focus on two particular elements of his game: catching the ball deep in the paint and keeping it high once he has it.On Tuesday, he showed improvement in both areas. After finishing with a mere two points and four rebounds against Cornell, Coleman posted a double-double in No. 9 Syracuse’s (2-0) 89-74 win over Fordham (1-1) at the Carrier Dome in front of 22,667.“DaJuan played his game,” freshman forward B.J. Johnson said. “Came up big with some rebounds. He played very well.”Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said Coleman is a force down low and does a good job corralling rebounds. He had 10 against Fordham, seven of which came on the offensive glass.“He gets in the middle,” Boeheim said. “He gets his hands on balls.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLate in the first half, Coleman snatched a C.J. Fair miss. He missed a layup, but after the ball deflected off Jerami Grant’s chest, Coleman grabbed it and elevated to shoot.The shot swirled around the rim and fell. Coleman was fouled and his free throw extended SU’s lead to 42-19.There were times when Coleman was inefficient, though.On one play in the second half, he started with the ball 3 feet outside the paint and thumped his way inside and forced a shot.Assistant coach Mike Hopkins, who works with Coleman in practice, stood up and swung his fist. Hopkins seemed to be half excited about the move and half frustrated with the shot selection and that Coleman didn’t finish.Coleman said he’s working on positioning himself deeper inside so he can rise up to the basket and not have to make an unnecessarily complicated move to get toward the rim.“The further I get it the easier it’s going to be to score,” Coleman said.Coleman finished 3-of-6 on Tuesday, and all of his field goals came in the paint.“That’s the way it should be,” Boeheim said. “If anything, he worked too much away from the paint.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 13, 2013 at 12:58 am Contact Trevor: tbhass@syr.edu | @TrevorHasslast_img read more

Former USC football players begin NFL careers

first_imgChuma Edoga was a full-time starter for two years at USC and appeared in 34 games throughout his college career. Now a Jet, he will reunite with former USC quarterback Sam Darnold in New York. This preseason, Edoga has seen increased action with Darnold and the starting unit due to an injury to starting right tackle Brandon Shell. Edoga’s chemistry with Darnold should help him learn the Jets’ blocking schemes quickly and allow him to communicate effectively throughout his rookie year. Edoga is projected to be a backup offensive tackle and has a chance to see the field this year if the Jets’ offensive line should suffer any injuries. However, he will need to improve his pass protection before becoming a full-time starter in the NFL.  Throughout its history, the Trojans’ storied football program has sent more players to the NFL than all but one other school in the nation. This year, USC has continued to establish itself as a breeding ground for NFL-bound talent, as four Trojans were drafted into the league and one signed as an undrafted free agent. OT Chuma Edoga The leading tackler for USC’s defense in 2018, Cameron Smith was drafted by the Vikings in the fifth round, joining star linebackers Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks in Minnesota. Smith is a high-IQ player adept at diagnosing offensive calls and seeking out the ball carrier. His highest tackle total for USC (112) came in 2017, when he played in all 14 games. In his three other seasons as a Trojan, he averaged just over 80 tackles a season. Smith is still battling to make the Vikings’ 53-man roster this year, and it wouldn’t be a shock if he does, but he is unlikely to see significant game action this season.  Round 3, Pick 92 Overall  LB Porter Gustin Former USC cornerback Iman Marshall, who was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens, makes a tackle against Washington State last season. (Tal Volk/Daily Trojan) CB Iman Marshall At USC, Marvell Tell III proved to be a playmaking free safety whose speed could help him make an impact at any level. In his junior year, Tell made 85 tackles and had three interceptions, returning one for a touchdown. Indianapolis drafted Tell intending to use him as a safety, but teams were wary about taking him due to his smaller stature, believing him unable to be a consistent tackler. Tell earned a spot in Pro Football Focus’ “Team of the Week” after allowing no receptions on two targets and breaking up one pass in the Colts’ preseason opener. He will continue to be a promising prospect that Indianapolis will hope to develop into a contributing corner in the near future. Iman Marshall was a four-year starter at the cornerback position for USC. As a Trojan, the 6-foot-1 207-pounder was known as a big hitter and never shied away from contact with smaller Pac-12 receivers. In the NFL, he may struggle guarding faster, more disciplined wideouts one-on-one. The Ravens have considered transitioning him to safety, where his physical style and experience as a cornerback should certainly benefit him. Marshall is not projected to have a starting role in Week 1 but will be on the team’s radar throughout the year. Marshall has been sidelined due to injury.  Indianapolis Colts New York Jetscenter_img Minnesota Vikings LB Cameron Smith  CB Marvell Tell III  Round 5, Pick 162 Overall  Round 6, Pick 144 Overall  Undrafted Free Agent Round 4, Pick 127 Overall Baltimore Ravens  New Orleans Saints At USC, Gustin was a dominant outside linebacker with a knack for getting to the quarterback. However, his injury history and a positive test for Adderall (considered a performance-enhancing drug) at the 2019 NFL combine caused his once-promising draft stock to plummet, and Gustin was not selected. The Saints picked him up hoping to convert him from outside linebacker to defensive lineman. Gustin played defensive end in 2016 for the Trojans and picked up 68 total tackles, 5.5 sacks and four deflected passes. He may have to bulk up for the position change; while his 6’4” stature is average for NFL defensive ends, his weight of 260 lbs would put him at a disadvantage against massive offensive linemen. Gustin has seen valuable action throughout the preseason and tallied a sack and tackle in the Saints’ matchup against the Jets. Gustin is unlikely to see much regular season game action this year.last_img read more
