perth_map

The drama was not over, as Morata failed to convert his third gilt-edged chance of the match. But Eden Hazard converted from the spot to level four minutes later, after the Belgian was fouled by Hector Bellerin . Arsenal's defense was again inconsistent as the second half began, and Cech had to step in and save a couple Chelsea shots. A weak effort aimed straight at Cech was followed by a thunderbolt courtesy of right wing back Zappacosta , who nigh-on dented the crossbar. Read More »

perth_map

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now on a warm-weather training camp in Dubai ahead of their Premier League clash with Stoke at Old Trafford on Monday night.

perth_map

Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis. This is the first playoff game between the two teams since the shootout back in 2009 when the Saints beat the Vikings 28-31 on a game-winning field goal in overtime. They don't need to force any turnovers, and they do not need to score. In a Twitter poll I sent out earlier this week, my followers (ok, so my mom, grandma and my fake burner account) voted by a large margin they'd rather take down the Saints in a 30-point blowout rather than deliver a ...

Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at times". It's the first time in James' career he's been involved in back-to-back losses of 25 points or more and the Cavaliers' defence is being blasted as "embarrassing". Simmons had 15 points, three assists, two rebounds, two steals and two blocks as the 76ers let a 22-point first half lead slip. His play, coupled with an ineffective stint by Channing Frye , could quiet those who blame Thompson's return from a strained left calf as the main reason for the Cavs' ... Read More »
