Aguero treble gets City back on track as United eye Sanchez

first_imgBut their return to winning ways here had manager Pep Guardiola proclaiming his side needed 10 more victories to be crowned champions.Their advantage at the top of the table had been cut to single figures, for a few hours at least, when second-placed Manchester United beat Burnley 1-0 earlier on Saturday.Normal service resumed in the day’s late kick-off, though, with Aguero glancing in Kevin De Bruyne’s cross in the 34th minute to open the scoring at the Etihad.The Argentina striker then converted a 63rd-minute penalty awarded after Raheem Sterling tumbled in the box following a tug by Javier Manquillo.But struggling Newcastle scored against the run of play four minutes later when a rare lapse saw Jacob Murphy sprint through and finish in composed fashion.Arsenal’s defender Nacho Monreal (R) celebrates after scoring with midfielder Granit Xhaka during the English Premier League football match against Crystal Palace January 20, 2018 © AFP / Ben STANSALLAguero, however, put the result beyond doubt when City’s all-time leading goalscorer completed his 11th hat-trick for the club seven minutes from time following a superb run and pass from Leroy Sane.“We needed it (this win) after last week,” Aguero told BT Sport. “It’s a long season though and we’ve not won anything yet.”– ‘Didn’t panic’ –Guardiola added: “We need 10 more wins to be champions…It was important how we reacted at 2-1, we didn’t panic.”Meanwhile, Arsenal showed there was plenty of life after Alexis Sanchez as they beat Crystal Palace 4-1 without the United-bound Chilean forward.With Sanchez inching towards a £35 million transfer to United rather than City, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger left him out of his matchday squad.Manchester United’s striker Anthony Martial (R) vies with Burnley’s defender Phil Bardsley (L) during the English Premier League football match January 20, 2018 © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYAny fears Arsenal might falter up front without him proved groundless as they surged into a 4-0 lead inside 22 minutes at the Emirates Stadium thanks to goals from Nacho Monreal, Alex Iwobi, Laurent Koscielny, Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette before Luka Milivojevic pulled one back for Palace late on.Arsenal remain outside the top four but heartened manager Wenger said: “We played our real game in the first half, real pace and real combination.”– United ‘so close’ to Sanchez –At Turf Moor, United striker Anthony Martial scored a 54th-minute winner with his third league goal in as many matches.Jose Mourinho left midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the proposed makeweight in the Sanchez deal, out of his matchday squad and afterwards the United manager indicated the transfer saga was nearing an end.“Expect soon or never,” he said. “So close, so close, so close…I know my people are doing absolutely everything they can.”But Wenger warned: “Sanchez will only happen if Mkhitaryan comes here, that will be decided in the next 48 hours.”Chelsea won 4-0 away to Brighton as the reigning English champions leapfrogged Liverpool, who play Swansea on Monday, into third place.The Blues’ first win of 2018 saw Eden Hazard score twice with a goal in each half, while Willian and Victor Moses were also on target.Chelsea’s midfielder Eden Hazard celebrates after scoring their third goal during the English Premier League football match against Brighton and Hove Albion January 20, 2018 © AFP / Glyn KIRKOn a day when all Premier League fixtures were preceded by a minute’s applause honouring former West Bromwich Albion and England forward Cyrille Regis, a trailblazer for black players who died aged 59 last week, the Baggies drew 1-1 with Everton.Jay Rodriguez gave West Brom an early lead before Theo Walcott, on his Everton debut following a midweek move from Arsenal, laid on an equaliser for Oumar Niasse in the 70th minute.But the sight of Toffees midfielder James McCarthy going off with a broken leg cast a shadow over Everton boss Sam Allardyce’s 1,000th game as a manager.New Stoke manager Paul Lambert won his first game in charge of the Potters as they beat Huddersfield 2-0 with second-half goals from Joe Allen and Mame Biram Diouf to climb out of the relegation zone.Leicester beat Watford 2-0 while West Ham and Bournemouth drew 1-1.Tottenham Hotspur continue their quest for a Champions League place on Sunday against Southampton.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s striker Sergio Aguero celebrates after scoring the opening goal of the English Premier League football match between against Newcastle United January 20, 2018 © AFP / PAUL ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 20 – Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick as Manchester City restored their 12-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 win at home to Newcastle United on Saturday.City’s 30-match unbeaten run in the league, which spanned two seasons, came to a dramatic end with a 4-3 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield last week.last_img read more

Stakes raised for Mourinho-Conte feud in Cup final showdown

first_imgIf it is, nothing will give Conte more joy than bowing out by winning a cup competition for the first time as a coach by beating the man with whom he has clashed most regularly and bitterly since arriving in England.Conte labelled Mourinho a “little man” and “fake” at the peak of their spat in December.Days earlier, Mourinho had appeared to allude to a suspension given to Conte for allegedly failing to report match-fixing when coaching at Siena. Conte later won an appeal, clearing him of any wrongdoing in the case.The root of their feud comes from Conte’s success in his first campaign at Chelsea, just a season after Mourinho’s second spell at Stamford Bridge ended in the Portuguese being sacked having won just four of Chelsea’s first 16 league games, in December 2015.On his first return as a visiting manager, Mourinho protested at what he perceived as Conte’s “humiliating” celebrations in a 4-0 victory for the Blues over United.Conte then warned his players at the start of this season not to let their standards slip to the levels of “the last season with Mourinho”.– Chelsea slip –The winner takes it all: Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte are seeking FA Cup success to mask other disappointments this season © AFP / Ian KINGTON, Oli SCARFFIn hindsight, the Italian was right to warn against complacency as Chelsea have fallen well short of the form they showed in storming to the title last season.A fifth-placed finish in the Premier League was confirmed when they capitulated 3-0 to Newcastle on the final day of the season on Sunday.“To finish fifth is a big disappointment. How damaging is it not to be in the Champions League? You’ll have to ask the club about that,” Conte said, only intensifying speculation about his future.“If we play like this in the FA Cup final, we don’t have a chance. We have six days to change our approach, our desire, our will to fight because we can do much better.”Mourinho has at least ensured Champions League qualification for next season via a second-place finish in the Premier League.However, a record 19-point gap to champions Manchester City and a deeply disappointing Champions League last-16 exit to Sevilla means the Portuguese is also left hanging on until the final game of the season to deliver a trophy that would silence some of the critics of United’s often turgid performances, lacking in the invention and flair displayed by rivals City and Champions League finalists Liverpool.“Because I almost do that all the time (win a trophy), when I don’t do it, you (the media) kill me,” said Mourinho on the prospect of going without a trophy in his second season at Old Trafford. “Which is what you are all ready to do.”To do so, Mourinho must shake United out of their own end-of-season slumber — the Red Devils have scored just once in their past three games.Whether Mourinho can close the gap on City next season will depend on his ability to finally get the best out of his attacking talent, particularly marquee signings Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.Starting that process with a trophy on Saturday would be a strong statement of intent from United, and give Mourinho the extra satisfaction of showing Conte how short-lived life as Chelsea manager under ruthless Russian owner Roman Abramovich can be.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho and Chelsea’s Antonio Conte have repeatedly clashed © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, May 16 – Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte renew hostilities with the stakes heightened when Manchester United and Chelsea face off in Saturday’s FA Cup final needing silverware to mask this season’s flaws.Conte’s need is the greater. Having missed out on Champions League football for next season, many expect the Wembley showpiece to be the Italian’s final match in charge at Stamford Bridge, regardless of the outcome.last_img read more

Holders Germany dumped out of World Cup

first_img0Shares0000Germany players react after a missed chance during their last Group F match against South Korea. PHOTO/FIFAKazan, Russia, Jun 27-  Germany crashed out of the World Cup on Wednesday after a stoppage-time VAR-assisted goal from Younggwon Kim and a late second by Son Heungmin earned South Korea a famous 2-0 win.The Germans needed to beat Korea by two clear goals in their final group F match at Kazan stadium to advance to the last 16. But Joachim Loew’s men wasted a series of chances in a tense match that saw a pale version of the world champions become the fourth holders of the title this century to be sent packing at the first hurdle.Germany’s team of superstars could only look on in shock in the final minutes of the match as US referee Mark Geiger called for the video assistant referee to intervene after the unmarked Kim had bundled his shot past Germany ‘keeper Manuel Neuer from a corner early in stoppage time.The goal was awarded because Toni Kroos’ touch had played him onside, and minutes later Germany were 2-0 down after Neuer ran up the pitch in a desperate attempt to get a goal.A long punt upfield saw Tottenham forward Son chase a clearance to fire into an empty net.-First timeIt means Germany, the four-time champions who had competed in the past 16 editions of the World Cup, fail to make it past the first hurdle of the tournament since 1938.Germany coach Joachim Loew caused a surprise by leaving midfield attacking stalwart Thomas Mueller on the bench for the first time since 2012 after his underwhelming displays against Mexico and Sweden.But by the end of a frustrating opening half, Loew was left desperately studying his options.Germany suffered the first of several scares after South Korea won a free kick on the quarter hour when Sami Khedira’s boot connected with the head of Jung Wooyoung.From 30 yards out, it should have been fodder for World Cup-winning goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, but after fumbling Jung’s dipping drive Neuer scrambled desperately to clear as Son raced to pounce.Germany spurned a series of chances soon afterwards.Marco Reus, who hit a crucial leveller in the 2-1 win over Sweden, saw his drive deflected and Mesut Ozil saw his effort deflected off a Korean boot and out for a corner, after which goalkeeper Hyeonwoo Jo smothered desperately when Goretzka’s header found Hummels trying to pounce on the loose ball.-Mario Gomez inGermany resumed with more urgency after the interval, but despite edging closer when Loew introduced Mario Gomez just before the hour the big Stuttgart striker headed straight at Jo from Kimmich’s cross.Striker Timo Werner then met another Kimmich ball from the left byeline with a right-foot volley that skewed agonisingly wide of Jo’s upright.Germany urgency was not matched by their normal efficiency and soon legs started to tire.Loew played his final card when he introduced Mueller for Leon Goretzka.But the late changes failed to spark Germany into life as Korea hung on for a famous win that, unfortunately for the impressive Asians, saw them bow out after Sweden beat Mexico 3-0.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DONEGAL PRIEST SAID HE WAS SHOCKED BY GIRL’S ALLEGATIONS

first_imgA Donegal priest said he was “horrified” and “shocked” after he accused of indecently assaulting a teenage girl.Fr Eugene Boland denies five charges of indecently assaulting a 14-year-old girl between June 28, 1990 and June 30, 1992.The offences are alleged to have occurred while the teenager volunteered at a Parochial House in the Galliagh area of Derry. She alleges that the 66-year-old hugged her, kissed her on the lips and rubbed her back underneath her clothing.During the fourth day of the trial at Derry Crown Court, the jury of eight women and four men heard police interviews that were conducted with the priest in July 2010 at Omagh Police Station.Boland confirmed the alleged injured party would have been a regular visitor to the parochial house and she helped out there.He admitted he would have kissed her on the cheek and hugged her, but denied ever kissing the girl on the lips.The priest told officers he was a “open, friendly and bubbly” person and remembered saying something to the girl about fancying her if he was 20 years younger and she was 10 years older.However, said it was “meant as a compliment. It wasn’t suggestive”. The priest claimed the girl “obviously misinterpreted it”.The priest also told officers he received a phone call from her about this and he explained what he mean and apologised for any embarrassment it might have caused her.He said he had” no recollection” of telling the girl he only saw good looking women in Derry, after moving from Moville.When the specific allegations were put to the priest by police he said he had “no recollection of that happening”.DONEGAL PRIEST SAID HE WAS SHOCKED BY GIRL’S ALLEGATIONS was last modified: June 22nd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Fr Eugene Bolandlast_img read more
