Liverpool's pursuit of Chelsea frustrated; Man City and United win

ROB HARRIS, AP Global Soccer Writer br /> LONDON (AP) — Liverpool's pursuit of English Premier League leader Chelsea stalled on Monday as Juergen Klopp's four-match winning run ended at Sunderland. Liverpool's 2-2 draw against a relegation-threatened Sunderland side gives Chelsea the platform to open up an eight-point lead by beating Tottenham on Wednesday. Twice Liverpool led in northeast England — through Daniel Sturridge and Sadio Mane — but on both occasions Jermain Defoe scored penalties to draw Sunderland level. Mane's hand-ball was responsible for conceding the second spotkick. 'I must be honest, it doesn't feel good and it's not because of the point, it's because two penalties in a game,' Klopp said. 'Usually what you have to do to get a penalty, to get two, that was harsh, very hard to accept. 'But obviously I have to accept it, so I will do it.' ___ MAN CITY 2, BURNLEY 1 A victory for City but Pep Guardiola was still tetchy after the game, even suggesting he might not have long left in management. Halfway through his first season at City, the 45-year-old former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach said: 'It might be one of my last teams.' English football is proving far tougher for Guardiola than Spanish or German. After losing at Liverpool on Saturday, City started badly against Burnley when captain Fernandinho was sent off in the 32nd minute for a two-footed lunge on Johann Gudmundsson. City held off Burnley with 10 men and seized the lead in the second half through Gael Clichy. Sergio Aguero came off the bench to score a second, ensuring Ben Mee's goal for Burnley would only be a consolation. City regained third place ahead of Arsenal, which is at Bournemouth on Tuesday, and Tottenham. ___ WEST HAM 0, MAN UNITED 2 United reeled off a sixth successive league victory in a match that turned on Sofiane Feghouli being harshly sent off for a late challenge on Phil Jones in the 15th minute. Even with a man advantage, United took until the 63rd to score when substitutes Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata combined. Mata turned Rashford's pullback past goalkeeper Darren Randolph before Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his 17th goal in his first season with United. ___ EVERTON 3, SOUTHAMPTON 0 Everton scored three times in the last 17 minutes to ensure manager Ronald Koeman emerged victorious against the club he left in the offseason. Enner Valencia was the game-changer, coming off the bench to score the opener in the 73rd minute and then winning the penalty that Leighton Baines converted. Romelu Lukaku contributed the third as 10th-place Southampton lost a third match inside a week. Everton is seventh. ___ WEST BROM 3, HULL 1 Hull is now without a win in nine games and three points from safety after throwing away the lead at West Bromwich Albion. Robert Snodgrass' opener was canceled out by Chris Brunt before Gareth McAuley and James Morrison put the hosts in front. ___ MIDDLESBROUGH 0, LEICESTER 0 With Islam Slimani and Danny Drinkwater out injured and Jamie Vardy suspended, Leicester was satisfied with a point and a second successive clean sheet. It's all about avoiding a relegation dogfight for struggling champion Leicester, which is six points from danger. 'Middlesbrough pushed a lot but we were so solid and I am pleased with the spirit we showed,' Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri said. .....»»

Local Westbrook?

Scottie Thompson never ceases to amaze even the great Tim Cone. On Friday, the sophomore guard was at it again for Ginebra, flashing his usual brilliance that made the greatest PBA coach of all time once again mention him like he's already one of the greats. 'He's a few runs below Sonny Jaworski but I think rebounding they're at par,' Cone said, putting the great Scottie in the same sentence with the Living Legend himself. Cone already once mentioned Thompson in the same sentence as Johnny Abbarientos, another all-time PBA great he had the chance to coach back when he was winning a Grand Slam with the Alaska Aces. With Thompson finishing the Ginebra victory over Blackwater with what has been a usual 13 points, 15 rebounds, and seven assists, Cone took his praise to the next level, implying that his prized catch from the 2015 Draft might be the local counterpart of a certain triple-double machine from Oklahoma City. 'I haven't seen a rebounding guard like hime even in the NBA [except maybe] the kid from Oklahoma City, [Russell] Westbrook,' Cone said. While averaging a triple-double at this stage of his career and with a loaded Ginebra lineup might be a stretch for now even for Scottie, Cone believes his young guard might be on the way. It's just a matter of him finding his inner aggressive self to take over the floor more on the offensive side of the ball. 'I don't want to put pressure on Scottie but I think eventually he could end up putting up Westbrook numbers once he learns how to score and he can score,' the 19-time PBA champion mentor said. 'I think that will open up the gate for him [being aggressive],' he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Williams shoots Lakers over Pacers

LOS ANGELES (AP) Lou Williams scored 27 points, Nick Young hit five 3-pointers and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped their five-game losing streak with a 108-96 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. Julius Randle scored 16 points while Young and rookie Brandon Ingram added 15 apiece as the Lakers made a prolonged second-half surge to win for just the sixth time in 27 games since November. The Lakers even did it without D'Angelo Russell, who left after slipping on their second possession of the game, mildly spraining a ligament in his right knee and straining his right calf. Paul George scored 21 points and Al Jefferson added 20 for the Pacers, who had a dismal second half in just their second loss in nine games. The Lakers improbably thrived without their point guard, showing off excellent ball movement and balanced scoring in their best effort in two weeks. Williams hit four 3-pointers in another prolific outside shooting performance, and Young put on his usual theatrics while peppering the Pacers with big buckets. Young also went to the locker room after hyperextending his left knee late in the first half, but he returned for the second half with a remarkable performance. The Lakers played without veteran forward Luol Deng, who has a sprained right wrist. .....»»
