Hinch was pleased with Houston's 14-hit offense. It's just a tough situation for them. "That would have set up the rest of the game for us if we could have gotten that inning pitched".

Rams already interested in extending Cooks

perth_map

Last season Cooks had 65 receptions and 1,082 receiving yards, to go along with seven touchdowns. The Cooks trade also calls into question the status of Rob Gronkowski , Brady's top target in 2017. Cooks will allow for McVay and the Rams offense to stretch the field even more, as Cooks is more north-south speed than Sammy Watkins . For the San Francisco 49ers , arguably the only team in the NFC West capable of contending for a division crown this year, the latest move only serves to ... Read More »

Gary Neville says Antonio Conte won't stay at Chelsea next season

This is the difference for me and it was the same on Sunday. It's such that when you have a season slightly worse than before, you go. "It remains one of the game's most glamorous jobs". "We must be a bit anxious about this". It has not only improved Jonjo Shelvey to the point where there is a case for the midfielder to be on England's World Cup flight to Russian Federation but also transformed the games of Mo Diame, Paul Dummett and Ayoze Perez.

Tottenham won at Chelsea for the first time in 28 years on Sunday to end their Stamford Bridge hoodoo, but this is about more than one game, about more than Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli delivering majestic goals at pivotal moments to suck the life out of their London rivals. Read More »

With Kane out injured for the next few weeks, the golden boot is nearly guaranteed to be heading to Merseyside this summer for the first time since the 2013-14 season when Luis Suarez netted 31 times. Whilst there has been plenty of chopping and changing in Antonio Conte's team selection, especially upfront, Salah's relentlessness in front of goal has dented our chances of participating in next season.

We've got some huge gaps we need to fill.

"We just couldn't get to grips with what has happened in the last week and we couldn't apply ourselves mentally". We are going to have a new coach and a new brand and culture. Read More »

Markram shines with 152 but Australia strike back with late wickets

perth_map

Australia , of course, are 2-1 down in the series. It was South Africa's day from the time Temba Bavuma and De Kock weathered a tricky period against a ball that was nearly new after resuming at 313 for six. Perhaps the only person who wasn't thrilled to see the towering fast bowler take those giant strides out to the middle was the non-striker Bavuma, who was five runs short of three figures.

He's a fantastic player and City will be champions, so he has a trophy. Leroy Sane put City ahead with a sumptuous volley from David Silva's pin-point cross in the fourth minute. There was contact.

"If I have a problem in a family, if I have a problem somewhere, then I stay in the family, stay in the club and sort the problem", said Klopp . Read More »

perth_map

This mouthwatering fixture between two superb attacking sides is definitely one of the biggest games the Anfield club has been involved in since Jurgen Klopp became manager in October 2015. At the very least, a draw would be a fine result to take back to the Etihad Stadium next week. "I think everyone in the dressing room are just normal guys". Read More »

Conte refuses to blame board for Chelsea woes

But it is also only three points. Chelsea's star playmaker Eden Hazard , on the contrary, simply went through the motions, as did many of his teammates, starved of creativity, lacking imagination when on the ball and determination without it - a forlorn shadow of the previous season. Read More »

Masters Tournament: PGA Golf Odds, Pick, Predictions, Dark Horses

It's not just Woods, though. Yet the Spaniard, who needed 74 attempts finally to claim a major, said he would not be trying to replicate last year's off-course routines, nor staying in the same house or eating the same foods. Also, the model says four golfers with odds of 18-1 or longer make a deep run at the Masters title. The victor of this week's Houston Open will be added to the list, if he has not already qualified.

Proteas to focus on cricket in final test

This would give their bowlers a chance to rest up and with nearly three days left to play there was plenty of time for them to bat again and put Australia completely out of this game. De Villiers's rich vein of form continued, with his batting one of the prettier things to come from an ugly series. It's been all South Africa so far in Johannesburg and the Proteas will be sniffing victory heading into day three. Read More »
