Man City beats Leicester, shows stomach for EPL title fight

By Steve Douglas, Associated Press If any team has a chance of stopping Liverpool marching to a first English league title in 30 years, it looks to be Manchester City rather than Leicester. City gave a timely reminder of its champion qualities by coming from a goal behind to beat Leicester 3-1 on Saturday in a match between the teams who are closest to runaway leader Liverpool in the standings. Second-place Leicester stayed 10 points behind Liverpool, which wasn’t in Premier League action this weekend because of its involvement in the Club World Cup in Qatar, and is now only one point ahead of City. On this evidence, it’s City which has the quality to pounce if Liverpool does slip up. The defending champions conceded against the run of play - Jamie Vardy scoring, almost inevitably, on the counterattack for a league-leading 17th goal of the season - but played some breathtaking, high-energy football to hand Leicester its first league defeat in 10 games dating to Oct. 5. “Tonight is a good lesson for us of the work we still need to do to get to the level City are at,” said Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers, who described the match as a “humbling” experience. Riyad Mahrez, who was a constant danger to his former club, equalized with a deflected shot before goals by Ilkay Gundogan - from the penalty spot - and Gabriel Jesus. Kevin De Bruyne was the standout player and set up Jesus' goal with a driving run. Doubts about City’s stomach for a fight after four losses in the first 16 games of its title defense have disappeared after scoring three goals in wins over Arsenal and now Leicester over the past week. “When we lose it is a disaster and impossible, when we win it is possible to catch (Liverpool)," City manager Pep Guardiola said. "If we play like we did tonight we can compete with everyone.” Liverpool has a game in hand over both of its nearest rivals and still hasn't lost a league game this season. NEW COACHES Sat in the stands watching their new teams play out an uninspiring 0-0 draw, Carlo Ancelotti and Mikel Arteta must have realized the scale of the task awaiting them at Everton and Arsenal, respectively. Ancelotti was announced as Everton’s latest manager just an hour before kickoff at Goodison Park, while Arteta was officially hired by Arsenal on Friday. Neither coach picked the starting lineups for Saturday’s game that rarely sparked into life, highlighting both teams’ issues in a season where they have struggled. Ancelotti will take the reins of a side that is in 15th place, just four points above the relegation zone. It’s a situation he isn’t used to, having mostly been in charge of elite European clubs in his illustrious coaching career that includes three Champions League titles. Arteta’s new team won’t be high on confidence, either, down in 11th place in the league and having won just once in 13 games in all competitions since the end of October. UNLIKELY TOP-FOUR BIDS The Premier League is nearly half a season old, and Sheffield United and Wolverhampton Wanderers are still managing to keep up their unlikely bids for Champions League qualification. Sheffield United climbed to fifth place with a 1-0 win at Brighton that preserved its unbeaten away record since returning to the top flight this season. It is six draws and three wins from the team’s nine away games, with United not losing away in the league since January — when it was in the League Championship. Oli McBurnie scored the only goal against Brighton after latching onto a long clearance from goalkeeper Dean Henderson. Wolves are a point and a place behind after rallying for a 2-1 victory at Norwich, with Raul Jimenez scoring the 81st-minute winner. Romain Saiss began the comeback in the 60th after Todd Cantwell opened the scoring for Norwich, which stayed in next-to-last place. Both Sheffield United and Wolves can be overtaken by Tottenham and Manchester United, who play separate games Sunday. VILLA DROPS Southampton climbed out of the relegation zone at the expense of Aston Villa by beating its relegation rival 3-1, thanks to two goals by Danny Ings. The teams started the match level on points. Miguel Almiron finally scored for Newcastle in his 27th game for the club in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, in a match between two midtable teams. Burnley scored in the 89th minute to beat Bournemouth 1-0......»»

SEA Games: Gilas and Myanmar prove that indeed, “We Win As One”

MANILA — It’s already on the official theme song, “We Win As One” in these 2019 Southeast Asian Games here. After Gilas Pilipinas issued a 69-point beating to an obviously overmatched Myanmar side Saturday, the two national teams got together post-game and took a photo together. There will be winners and losers in the SEA Games but coming together and displaying proper sportsmanship takes priority. It’s not just about beating the other team up. Against Myanmar, Gilas certainly didn’t want to embarrass an opposing country that’s clearly just starting to find its way in the sport. By virtue of a 136-67 win, Gilas coach Tim Cone feels like the Philippines achieved that delicate balance of playing to win but at the same time, giving the opponents the respect they deserve. “We were trying to find a balance between playing the game hard and respecting the game and yet not trying to run up the score. We didn't want to run up the score and embarrass anybody,” Cone said. “Obviously, there's a big gap in talent between the two teams. But, you know, the SEA Games are all about competition and friendship. You compete through friendship. You try to gain friendships,” he added. Just as the official theme song of these SEA Games suggest, “yes we compete but the greatest feat is when we win as one.” It might look tough to look at the scoreboard now but Myanmar having multiple shots at Gilas Pilipinas can only help improve their own basketball program. It's just the same as when the Philippines plays far superior teams at the world level. “You're not trying to create enemies in the SEA Games. That's why we all come together and that's something we want to try to represent tonight. We want Myanmar to keep coming back and keep wanting to play and keep wanting to improve their basketball program,” coach Tim said. “We don't want to discourage them, and no one likes to be embarrassed. No one likes to be humiliated, so we just tried to be respectful and try to continue to play the game hard, create good habits going to the next game,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP Season 82 Finals: We worked. We worked hard -- Baldwin

Ateneo de Manila University head coach Tab Baldwin is a firm believer that what you do and how you prepare during a long layoff will dictate how you will perform during the game. For him ‘being rusty’ is a choice not an effect of a long break from action. The Blue Eagles took a 16-day break from playing actual games after sweeping the elimination round but during that lull from action, Baldwin made sure that there will be no time wasted as they prepare for their grand slam bid in the UAAP Season 82 men’s basketball Finals. “I said at the time, I always thought the big break was an advantage, not a disadvantage,” he said. “I’m a big believer in preparation. I think if you give me as a coach more preparation time, that’s gonna be an advantage for our basketball team.” He stressed that long layoffs should never be an excuse to drop one’s momentum.   “We never bought into the stuff about a long lay-off makes you rusty and things like that,” he said. “Not working makes you rusty. Working makes you not rusty. And we worked. We worked hard.” And what they did gave them the edge to mow down University of Sto. Tomas, 91-77, on Saturday in Game 1 of the best-of-three championship series at the Big Dome. While waiting for their Finals opponent and the league was busy in the stepladder semifinals, Baldwin focused of the conditioning of his wards. They knew that the team that they will face in championship round will be an exhausted squad but will also be a battle-hardened one.   The Blue Eagles had to be fit. “Our preparation was tough. I told the team, after we finished the elimination round, that I didn’t think we were fit enough,” he recalled. Against UST, a running and relentless team led by season Most Valuable Player Soulemane Chabi Yo and energizer Mark Nonoy, Ateneo needed that extra pump. “As it turns out when you play UST, your fitness is gonna be challenged that’s for sure,” said Baldwin. “We might surprise a lot of people. We did a lot of running, a lot of sprints. A lot of work on our fitness.” “We needed it tonight, even though we have a deep bench, even though we have confidence up and down the bench. They pumped those legs, man,” he added. But Baldwin doesn’t want his team to relax at this point. After all, the Blue Eagles still have to win one more game to complete a historic 16-match tournament sweep. “We're not prepared to say that it has won us anything yet because all it’s done is get us to the next game,” he said. Game 2 is on Wednesday at the MOA Arena.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Leicester ties biggest EPL win with 9-0 rout of Southampton

SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) — Leicester scored five first-half goals and another four after the break to destroy 10-man Southampton 9-0 on Friday and tie the biggest win in Premier League history. Manchester United beat Ipswich by the same score in 1995, three years after the English top tier was rebranded. Brendan Rodgers' Leicester moved second in the league as Ayoze Perez and Jamie Vardy both scored hat tricks at a wet St. Mary's stadium. "We actually found out at 6-0 when Jonny Evans came sprinting over and said if we carry on doing what we're doing we can get the record," Vardy told Sky Sports. "We've gone all the way to the end and managed to do it." Southampton's Ryan Bertrand became the first Premier League player to receive a red card after a VAR review for an incident in the buildup to Leicester's first goal in the 10th minute. Leicester trails Liverpool by five points, and is ahead of third-place Manchester City by one point. Man City hosts Aston Villa on Saturday, and Liverpool hosts Tottenham in the 10th round's standout game on Sunday. Ben Chilwell scored the opener for the Foxes when he side-footed home after Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn could only parry Harvey Barnes' initial effort. Southampton quickly received another blow when Bertrand was ejected on review for stretching over the top of the ball with his studs making contact with Perez's shin before the goal. It got worse for the hosts when Leicester broke down the left to make it 2-0 in the 17th after Youri Tielemans fired in a low effort from the center of the box following good work by Barnes down the left wing. Tielemans then set up Perez who made it 3-0 inside 20 minutes with his first goal for the club. Chilwell's cross picked out Perez, whose impressive strike put the visitors 4-0 ahead in the 39th, and Vardy had time to add a fifth before the break with Southampton jeered off the field. Perez got his hat trick in the 57th. Barnes chipped the ball into the box, where Perez brought it down on his chest and slotted beyond Gunn. Vardy triggered an exodus of Saints fans with his second goal a minute later for 7-0, rising to head in Chilwell's cross. With the rain continuing to pour and St Mary's rapidly emptying, Maddison added his name to the scoresheet in the 85th. His curling free kick from just outside the box made it 8-0 — the scoreline by which Manchester City beat Watford earlier in the season. Vardy scored from the penalty spot right at the end for his hat trick as Leicester equaled the Premier League's record winning margin in stoppage time, after Vardy had been brought down by Jan Bednarek. Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhuttl said: "I take 100% responsibility for this result. This cannot happen like this. For me, I've never had such an experience in my entire managing career." As well as matching Man United's 9-0 win against Ipswich, Friday's rout sets a new marker for EPL away victories, exceeding United's 8-1 win at Nottingham Forest in 1999. Southampton, which had named an unchanged lineup for the game like Leicester, dropped into the relegation zone behind 17th-place Newcastle on goal difference. The Saints haven't won at home since April. Southampton included a tribute to the late Leicester chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha on the front of the match program, two days before the first anniversary of the helicopter crash which killed him and four other people. "The main thing that Khun Vichai ever wanted from us was to fight and win and I think you can see tonight that we've done that in amounts beyond what we've ever seen playing-wise," said Vardy. "Credit to the boys and hopefully the boss is looking down on us.".....»»

Juan GDL takes fight out of La Salle for UP s fourth win in a row in UAAP 82

The University of the Philippines kept fighting and fighting, Wednesday at MOA Arena and ultimately forced its way to a 72-71 come-from-behind victory versus very game De La Salle University. Juan Gomez de Liano's triple with 7.8 ticks to go on the clock proved to be the difference as the Fighting Maroons battled back from a deficit of 13 points to book their fourth consecutive victory heading into a highly anticipated rematch of last year's Finals with Ateneo de Manila University now in the UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament. "My team is just like leading a chariot with wild stallions - one goes to the right, one goes to the left, one goes to the middle," head coach Bo Perasol said post-game. "Come winning time, however, they get their acts together. State U was still staring at a four-point deficit following Aljun Melecio's triple and Justine Baltazar's split from the stripe inside the last two minutes. At the other end, Kobe Paras fished a foul and converted his couple of charities to pull the maroon and white within two. Jamie Malanzo wasn't able to do so at the other end and not long after, a mad scramble ensued with the ball ending up with Juan GDL. The third-year star wasted no time rising up and launching the long-range missile that would eventually end up as UP's fifth win in six games. "The biggest shot came from Juan. Juan is a winner, always a winner," head coach Bo Perasol said of his prized playmaker who wound up with a season-best 10 points to go along with five rebounds. Paras topped the scoring column for his side with 21 points while reigning and defending MVP Bright Akhuetie also added a 17-marker, 14-rebound double-double on top of three assists, two blocks, and two steals. For the Green Archers, Melecio and Andrei Caracut each scored 16 points while Baltazar pounded in 13 markers and nine rebounds. Unable to finish what they started, they fell to a share of fifth at 2-4.

ONE Championship: After disappointing night in Manila, it’s back to the drawing board again for Team Lakay

ONE Championship’s third trip to Manila for 2019, ONE: Dawn of Heroes which was held last August 2nd at the Mall of Asia Arena, was tagged as the biggest martial arts event in Philippine history.    With fans packing the stadium, it was the perfect platform for La Trinidad-based mixed martial arts stable Team Lakay to showcase their talents in front of what could possibly be the biggest ONE crowd in Manila.    Unfortunately for Team Lakay, ONE: Dawn of Heroes would prove to be an unfavorable night for the most part.    “1 and 4,” said Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao during the post-event press conference. “One win and four losses, but again, it’s not the first time that we’ve experienced a case like this. We’ve gone 0-5, and again, we learned a lot of lessons from tonight, and we’ll be back to the drawing board. We’ll go back to the hotel and discuss what happened.”   The preliminary card was nothing short of a disaster for Team Lakay, as former champions Geje Eustaquio and Honorio Banario, and featherweight contender Edward Kelly all absorbed painful losses.    Kelly, who was the first on deck, fell victim to unintentional illegal blows to the back of the head at the hands of Chinese contender Xie Bin, rendering him unable to continue. With the bout already past the halfway point when the infraction occurred, a technical decision needed to be made, and it went in favor of Xie, who had been dominating Kelly all throughout the first one-and-a-half rounds.    Hoping to right the ship and get himself back on track as well was former ONE Featherweight World Champion Banario, who took on a short-notice replacement in South Korean Dae Sung Park. Banario was originally slated to face Russian Timofey Nastyukhin, but instead went to the prelims after Nastyukhin needed to pull out due to an injury.    Banario found himself in trouble early on after getting rocked with a left high kick and an elbow, but was able to survive and make things competitive for the rest of the bout. Banario had his moments, but it was Park who was in control for the better part of the three-round bout, leading to a unanimous decision win.    “Siguro the lesson I learned in this fight is I need to train more,” a dejected Banario said during the post-fight presser. “I gave everything in the fight, but it wasn’t my night, so I think the next time, I need to train more and improve my game.”    With the loss, Banario is now riding a two-fight losing streak, and while he admitted that the short-notice opponent change may have thrown him off his game for a bit, “The Rock” offered up no excuses for the defeat.    “Just a little bit, because my opponent changed to a southpaw, I tried to adapt for three weeks, but there’s no excuses. I lost the fight and [I need] to go back to the drawing board,” he said.    Hoping to be able to end the slump was former ONE Flyweight World Champion Eustaquio, who was coming off a bounce-back win back in Singapore. Against a heavy-handed Japanese striker in Yuya Wakamatsu, Eustaquio was hoping to get a win and throw himself back into title contention. Instead, Wakamatsu had other plans, as he landed a stiff right straight that knocked Eustaquio out in the first round.   It was Eustaquio’s first loss via knockout.    “Things happen, you know? In this level of competition, it’s either you get knocked out or you will knock him out. It’s just that tonight was not my night. I hope, and I believe that this is going to be a big stepping stone for me to become a better athlete,” he said.    In what was Team Lakay’s main event for the night, former two-time ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang faced arguably his toughest challenge yet in former UFC and Bellator Lightweight World Champion Eddie Alvarez in a ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix semifinal bout.    Folayang appeared to be within moments of victory after chopping Alvarez down with a vicious leg kick and pouncing on the grounded American.    Over-aggression led to a bit of carelessness for Folayang as he found himself getting reversed as he was looking to finish Alvarez off.    With the American star now in dominant position, it was only a matter of moments before he managed to impose his superior grappling and submitted the Filipino hero with a Rear Naked Choke just a little over two minutes into the opening round.   “I think, for Eduard in this fight, the major lesson that we learned is that ‘Don’t rush. We’re winning.’ I thought we won already, but because of small details, we’re in the [world-class] calibre, so small details will finish everything and lose the fight, so next time, we’ll be cautious,” Sangiao said of Folayang’s loss.    The lone bright spot for the team was their youngest Lakay in Danny Kingad, who rallied back to defeat Reece McLaren in their ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix semifinal bout. With the win, Kingad advances to the Finals to face American MMA icon and former long-time UFC Flyweight king Demetrious Johnson, who was also victorious that night against Japanese contender Tatsumitsu Wada.    Kingad and Johnson are set to square off at ONE: Century in Tokyo, Japan this October.    As Coach Mark said, this isn’t the first time that Team Lakay has felt disappointment in Manila. In fact, they have gone worse.    Back in 2013, Team Lakay went 0-5, with Folayang, Eustaquio, and Banario and Kevin Belingon all suffering losses that night in Manila.    But following the downs are usually ups, and Team Lakay has had their share of ups as well since then. They have gotten quite a few clean sweeps and even ended 2018 with four world championships, which means that all is not lost for the Igorot warriors, and Sangiao is confident that his team will regain their glory in the future.    “As I’ve said, this isn’t the first time that we’ve experienced cases like this. Before, we experienced going 0-5, and now we will be back again, and I know that they will be back stronger and better.”   .....»»
