Man City defense implodes with Liverpool on title charge

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City’s title defense is imploding in a way Pep Guardiola has never experienced before. Losing 2-1 to Manchester United left City with 32 points in the Premier League — Guardiola’s lowest haul after 16 matches in 11 years in top-flight management. Any fading prospect of a hat trick of titles looks to have been extinguished by City’s fiercest foe in a game marred by United players being targeted with racist abuse and objects thrown by home fans. The derby defeat left City 14 points behind Liverpool after the leaders won 3-0 at Bournemouth to nudge toward ending a 30-year championship drought. “It is not realistic to think about catching up,” Guardiola said. Second-place Leicester is now the team to catch for City, but the 2016 champions can move six points ahead with a victory at Aston Villa on Sunday. Chelsea’s grip on fourth place weakened with a 3-1 loss at struggling Everton as Duncan Ferguson started his caretaker command with a signature success. But the goal of the day came at Tottenham where Son Heung-min ran scored a dazzling solo goal after running from one of the field to the other in a 5-0 victory over Burnley for Jose Mourinho’s sixth-place team. UNITED TURNAROUND Chelsea’s collapse helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cap a transformative week with United up to fifth place and only five points from the Champions League spots. Being held at home by Aston Villa last Sunday raised further doubts about Solskjaer’s job prospects, especially with Mauricio Pochettino on the market after being fired by Tottenham. But since then Solskjaer has masterminded victories over two of the biggest names in management: Mourinho — Pochettino’s successor at Tottenham — and Guardiola. "There's more hard times for the doubters out there,” Solskjaer said, “because we'll keep on working the way we're doing and we believe in what we're doing.” United tore apart City in the first half at the Etihad Stadium. Marcus Rashford put United ahead from the penalty spot in the 23rd minute after being bundled over by Bernardo Silva. The second goal inside six minutes was created by a slick exchange of passes between Daniel James and Anthony Martial, who applied the final touch past goalkeeper Ederson. City didn’t even manage a shot on target until the 34th when United goalkeeper David de Gea denied David Silva. Although Nicolas Otamendi’s header reduced the deficit in the 85th, City couldn’t prevent United from claiming only a second away win of the season. City’s priority after the game was working with police to identity the fans who racially abused United duo Fred and Jesse Lingard and hurled objects at them as a corner was able to be taken during the second half. “Thank God I have a lot of friends here in the locker room who hugged me, like Lingard,” Fred told ESPN. "I don't want to think about it. I just want to move on.” LIVERPOOL ON MARCH Liverpool’s goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Mohamed Salah came in a devastating 19-minute spell either side of halftime to make it 33 league games unbeaten for Juergen Klopp’s side stretching back into last season. “The team performance was just really mature and professional,” Klopp said. “Just what we needed." ‘SONALDO’ Son’s mazy run before scoring Tottenham’s third goal against Burnley reminded Mourinho of a goal scored by Brazil great Ronaldo. "Even before this goal my son calls him ‘Sonaldo,’ and today he was Sonaldo Nazario," Mourinho said. “The only thing that came to my mind was a goal where I had the honor to be sat next to Sir Bobby Robson, in 1996, and Ronaldo Nazario scored a goal against Compostela from behind the halfway line and scored a very similar goal." Harry Kane also scored twice and Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko were on target as Tottenham recovered from losing to United on Wednesday. FERGUSON’S EMOTIONS Ferguson, a former Everton striker, already has the team out of the relegation zone after Marco Silva’s firing. Ferguson was charging down the touchline at Goodison Park celebrating with ball boys after Richarlison's header after five minutes against Frank Lampard’s Chelsea. "It was just relief, excitement,” Ferguson said. “But you still know there is a long way to go in the game so you're not getting too carried away, although it didn't feel like that at the time. I'd have hugged the linesman if he was there. It is just emotion. Dominic Calvert-Lewin extended Everton’s lead four minutes into the second half but Mateo Kovacic's first Premier League goal reduced the deficit. Those early wild celebrations by Ferguson were replicated in the 84th when Calvert-Lewin found the target again. WATFORD HALTS SLUMP New manager Nigel Pearson watched from the stands as Watford halted a three-game losing run by drawing 0-0 with Crystal Palace. Watford has won only once in the league this season and sits at the bottom of the standings, while Palace is in eighth place......»»

NFL coaching carousel started spinning early this year

By Arnie Stapleton, Associated Press Judging by the jump start, it looks like we're headed for a ninth consecutive season with at least a half-dozen NFL head coaches getting canned. The coaching carousel began whirling earlier than usual this season with Jay Gruden getting fired by the Washington Redskins in October after an 0-5 start and Ron Rivera getting dumped this week by the Carolina Panthers (5-7) in the midst of a four-game skid. They could be joined soon by Jason Garrett in Dallas (6-7), Dan Quinn in Atlanta (3-9), Doug Marrone in Jacksonville (4-8) and Pat Shurmur, whose New York Giants are 2-10, and maybe even by rookie head coach Freddie Kitchens in Cleveland (5-7) and second-year coach Matt Patricia in Detroit (3-8-1). Rivera was 76-63-1, the most successful of the four head coaches in the Panthers' franchise history. Like John Fox, he guided the Panthers to a Super Bowl only to come up short. Gruden's six-year run in Washington was the longest for any coach in Daniel Snyder's two decades of ownership, but that run produced a 35-49-1 record, two winning seasons and one playoff appearance. "Welcome to the club, bro," remarked Raiders coach Jon Gruden, who was fired by the Buccaneers in 2008. The club will soon be accepting more members. Some strong possibilities: JASON GARRETT, Dallas Cowboys, 83-66 (.557) in 10th season. The Cowboys have lost seven of 10 since a 3-0 start but still lead the middling NFC East by a half game over Philadelphia, which hosts the last-place Giants on Monday night. "I don't know how it is, we're still in the lead for our division," QB Dak Prescott said after the Cowboys' 31-24 loss at Chicago on Thursday night. "Got to be thankful for that, but we can't hang our hat on that. We have to figure out our issues now, fix them and get better." Asked Friday on his weekly radio show on 103.The Fan in Dallas if he's embarrassed by how his team is playing, owner Jerry Jones retorted, "Hey, get your damn act together, yourself. Now, we're going to have a good visit this morning, but settle down just a little bit. ... I've been traveling all night and I don't have the patience to jack with you today." A good many Cowboys fans don't want to wait for Garret's contract to expire after the season for Jones to make a coaching change. DAN QUINN, Atlanta Falcons, 39-37 (.513) in fifth season. Last year's 7-9 collapse was blamed on injuries, but this year's 3-9 stumble could cost Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff their jobs because of all those empty seats at glittering Mercedes-Benz Stadium. After taking the Falcons to Super Bowl 51, where they blew a 28-3 lead over New England, Atlanta has gone 21-25. The Falcons' 26-18 loss to New Orleans on Thanksgiving eliminated them, so December could be all about getting looks at young players, although Quinn said, "It’s always about playing our best to go win. That's the first priority." DOUG MARRONE, Jacksonville Jaguars, 20-26 (.435) in fourth season. The Jaguars have been blown out in four straight games, lopsided losses that crushed the team's playoff hopes and turned December into a debate about the futures of Marrone, personnel chief Tom Coughlin, general manager Dave Caldwell and quarterback Nick Foles. It's back to rookie Gardner Minshew at QB for the final month. Foles, who signed a four-year, $88 million contract last offseason, said he was going to "keep my head held high." Things aren't looking up for Marrone. PAT SHURMUR, New York Giants, 7-21 (.250) in second season. Expectations in East Rutherford, New Jersey, weren't high, but a return to respectability and a .500 record was a realistic goal for the Giants. Instead, the team might fail to even match last year's five-win total, and that puts Shurmur and general manager Dave Gettleman on notice. A loss at Philadelphia next Monday night would be the Giants' ninth straight, tying the franchise record for longest skid, set in 1976. Co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch haven't spoken publicly about the team since training camp, but back in August, Mara said, "I want to feel when I’m walking off the field after the last game of the season, whenever that is, that this franchise is headed in the right direction." FREDDIE KITCHENS, 5-7 (.333) in first season. Kitchens created a stir when he wore a shirt Friday night at the request of his daughters that read, "Pittsburgh started it" before the rematch with the Steelers, which they lost 20-13. "The T-shirt didn't cause us to give up 40-yard passes," Kitchens said. "We were ready to play. That's the only thing people need to be concerned about." Baker Mayfield wore a black cap after his last game that read "Miracle," which is what it probably will take for the Browns to salvage a season that began with high hopes and maybe even save Kitchens' job. MATT PATRICIA, 9-18-1 (.321), second season. The Lions have lost eight of nine since their 2-0-1 start and they've dropped five in a row. "It’s one of the toughest teams I’ve probably ever been around,” said Patricia, a former Patriots assistant coach. “This team fights like probably no other team I’ve ever seen. We’ve got to find a way to win.” Patricia is the seventh former assistant of Bill Belichick to get a head coaching job and all of them have losing records except for the Houston Texans' Bill O'Brien (50-42)......»»
