City wait on Silva injury news

first_img “I’ve just had a look now because everybody is talking about it. Everybody thinks it is a more serious attack from Cheikhou than it was. It doesn’t look deliberate at all to me.” Allardyce was also asked if he had spoken to Kouyate about the challenge. He said: “No. Why would I talk to him? He has no idea, it has happened from behind him. He doesn’t think he has done anything. You can see that reaction on the video on the laptop when you look at it.” The game itself was routine, aside from the bizarre nature of City’s opener – a freak own goal from James Collins. The Hammers defender managed to lob his own keeper Adrian attempting to intercept a Jesus Navas pass and the ball dropped in off bar and post. Sergio Aguero then made it 2-0 with his 26th goal of the season before half-time after Stewart Downing lost possession to Yaya Toure. Allardyce, whose side have won just once in 11 league outings, said: “The disappointing thing firstly was the goals were gifted to Manchester City and, secondly, the amount of possession we allowed ourselves to lose. “The two mistakes we made for the goals, one was pretty bizarre and the other unexpected from a player as experienced as Stewart Downing. “We had the resilience and determination to try to fight back and in the second half, eventually changing the system got us back playing better going forward. “We created good chances for Kevin Nolan and Enner Valencia but you have got to convert them.” For City the result and the three points were very much welcome after six defeats in the previous eight matches. That poor run culminated in last week’s demoralising derby loss at Manchester United but victory lifted them back within a point of their neighbours. Pellegrini said: “It was not depending on what Manchester United did yesterday – I think it was very important for our team to win. “We came from two defeats in a row and always when one is a derby it is worse. It was important to be a consistent team and we played especially, for the first 65 minutes until the injury of David that was a distraction, as a consistent team. “In other games we have played some minutes but today I think we played the whole game.” Pellegrini offered no comment to remarks from Yaya Toure’s agent referring to him as a “weak manager”. Manager Manuel Pellegrini said: “At this moment he is in hospital and they are checking if he has a broken bone in his cheek. “It looked serious but we must wait (to see) what happens at the hospital.” The club confirmed Silva’s collarbone was also being checked. Kouyate was booked by referee Anthony Taylor for the challenge, which occurred in the 67th minute, meaning the incident cannot be subjected to retrospective action. Pellegrini expressed hope that Kouyate had not acted deliberately. He said: “I always think that a player doesn’t want to damage another player. The referee was so near and he decided he was unintentional. Nothing more happens.” West Ham boss Sam Allardyce leapt to the defence of his Senegalese midfielder, insisting the incident was entirely accidental. Asked for his opinion on the incident, Allardyce said: “Accidental. It was pretty innocuous. I didn’t think it was a foul. Press Association Manchester City playmaker David Silva was taken to hospital after suffering suspected cheekbone and collarbone injuries in his side’s 2-0 victory over West Ham. The Spaniard was carried off on a stretcher after being caught by the elbow of West Ham’s Cheikhou Kouyate and landing awkwardly in the Barclays Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium. The 29-year-old received around eight minutes of treatment on the pitch before being carefully lifted off and taken to hospital for further examination. last_img read more

Baines out after surgery

first_img “It is one of those situations that doesn’t affect you for a period and then you get a knock or a bad movement and it flares up and becomes really painful. “The specialist saw him yesterday and everything was very quick. “The work that has been done gives really good stability to a problem he has had for a long time and at the start of the next campaign I feel we will get the real benefit.” Baines’ absence for Everton’s remaining two matches, plus a broken metatarsal injury to Bryan Oviedo, means youngster Luke Garbutt may get his chance at left-back. The 21-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has yet to agree terms on a new deal despite Martinez insisting they want to keep him. “From our point of view it doesn’t change anything; we have put a lot of effort on Luke Garbutt’s development in the last two years and we want him to stay at the club,” said the Toffees boss. “It is his decision (which) is the most important decision out of the two parties. “But we are very strong in that department. Leighton Baines has been incredible for us in that role, we have Bryan Oviedo who is another full international and Luke Garbutt represents an academy product who is ready to perform.” However, Martinez refused to confirm whether he would play Garbutt in the final two matches of the Barclays Premier League season. He added: “We can use this opportunity to look forward to the future but it is too early to tell at the moment (whether he will play against West Ham and then Tottenham).” The 30-year-old left-back had an operation on Wednesday and will miss the Toffees’ last two matches of the season plus England’s friendly against the Republic of Ireland and the Euro 2016 qualifier in Slovenia next month. Baines was forced off with the problem in the second half of last weekend’s defeat at home to Sunderland and that forced Everton’s medical team to have a proper look at the injury. “Leighton had a little bit of instability in his ankle and in the last two weeks it flared up and against Sunderland the pain he was having was intolerable,” said manager Roberto Martinez. “We got it checked and it needed a little bit of repair work so he had the surgery yesterday. “It was a straightforward operation just to clear the ankle so he will be out now until the start of pre-season but it is exactly what he needed.” Martinez said Baines had been managing the problem for a few years but it had been exacerbated in recent weeks. With nothing to play for in the remainder of the season the club decided to take action to rectify the issue. “He was trying to play through the pain barrier,” added the manager. “It has been a problem since 2012 and the ankle has been showing signs in the last two weeks that it needed some work. “Leading up to the Manchester United game (on April 26) was the first time he had it in an acute state and it was difficult for him to play pain-free. Press Association Everton defender Leighton Baines has had surgery on an established ankle problem in a bid to ensure he is pain-free for the first time in three years. last_img read more

Women of Troy trounce Wildcats

first_imgThe USC women’s basketball team played a pair of home games over the weekend, jumping out to double-digit leads early in both contests. However, the games would result in completely different outcomes.Strong weekend · Junior forward Cassie Harberts averaged 25 points per game against Arizona State and Arizona over the weekend. – Joseph Chen | Daily TrojanThe Women of Troy blew a 16-point halftime lead to lose 60-53 to Arizona State on Friday but were able to hold on to a 21-point halftime lead to beat Arizona 74-57 on Sunday. The victory ended a three-game Pac-12 losing streak that began Jan. 17 in an overtime loss against Cal.Junior forward Cassie Harberts led USC (8-11, 5-3 Pac-12) with 26 points, six rebounds and three blocks against Arizona(11-8, 3-5 Pac-12).

They would stretch their lead to as many as 23 and entered halftime up 43-22. Much of that had to do with USC’s accuracy from the field:  the Women of Troy shot 50 percent at the half compared to Arizona’s 23 percent. Harberts led all players with 15 points and six rebounds at the half, while Crook added nine points and four assists.Davellyn Whyte and Kama Griffitts led all Arizona scorers with five points at the half. Whyte would finish with 13 points, while Griffitts finished with 10 points and nine rebounds.The Wildcats came out of the locker room more aggressive on defense, but despite forcing more mistakes from the Women of Troy, Arizona was only able to cut the USC lead down to 48-35. USC would go on a 9-2 run to shift momentum back their way and hold on for the win. Their lead got to as many as 24 in the second half, and they would finish shooting 48 percent on the day to Arizona’s 29 percent.On Friday, USC looked like it was ready to roll to an easy win over the Sun Devils (11-9, 3-5 Pac-12) after entering halftime with a 36-20 lead.Unfortunately, the second half was dramatically different from the first.Arizona State outscored the Women of Troy 40-17 in the second half, changing the outlook of the game.The Women of Troy were led by Harberts, who finished with 24 points and 14 rebounds, including 19 points and 10 rebounds in the first half. Harberts was the only player to score in doublefigures. Sophomore forward Alexyz Vaioletama added seven points and six rebounds, while Alofaituli finished with six points, four rebounds and three assists.The Sun Devils were led by Janae Fulcher and Promise Amukamara, who each scored 9 points.USC controlled the boards in the first half against Arizona State, outrebounding the Sun Devils 24-12, and shot 41 percent compared to Arizona State’s 32 percent. The Sun Devils came out more aggressive in the second half, outrebounding the Women of Troy 16-15 and shooting 59 percent from the floor compared to USC’s 24 percent.The Sun Devils took a 54-53 lead with less than one-and-a-half minutes to go in the game off two free throws by Haley Videckis and didn’t give it up.The Women of Troy stay at the Galen Center to play another pair of home games next weekend, taking on the Utah Utes (10-9, 1-7 Pac-12) on Friday at 7 p.m. and the No. 20 Colorado Buffaloes   (15-3, 4-3 Pac-12) on Sunday at 10 a.m.last_img read more

The State of Play: Recapping the semester in sports, politics and American society

first_imgSports fans and American society are still different in one fundamental way. In sports, drop a couple of passes or hold your team back and you will find your ass on the bench. Lead your team to a losing record and every fan within a 3,500-mile radius of you will repay you with an all-American “fuck you” and pray for your unemployment.  Many readers (and by many I mean my dad), would call this the end of an era. For 16 weeks, I have put my blood, sweat and tears into “The State of Play.” Unfortunately, all good things in life — and in the case of my column, unfailingly mediocre things — must come to an end, and that is where we are today.  My friends, the end is finally here.  OK, so you accept the reality that sports and politics intersect, but should they? Should Kaepernick take a knee during the national anthem and should LeBron James express his political views? So with that being said, here are my two biggest takeaways from the semester.  I’ve heard enough of this:  For the last time, sports and politics cannot be separated. So, considering that this will likely be my last opportunity to spout off for the umpteenth time about why politics and sports intersect, I’d like to write a recap of sorts. After writing this column, I can confidently say that it’s taught me a lot.  Just think back on Colin Kaepernick, North Korea at the Winter Olympics, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey’s Twitter beef with the People’s Republic of China. Even today, we’re witnessing how a lack of government preparedness and leadership can lead to the cancellation of the sports world as we know it. I got plenty more examples where that came from, but I’ll spare you.  Because this false belief continues to manifest itself in the hearts and minds of sports fans everywhere, I’m going to try to dispel it one last time. Politics and sports intersect, and should intersect, in more ways than I can count.  “Keep your lib-tard sensibilities off of my gameday,” said a hypothetical but incredibly accurate portrait of a generic sports fan that I just created. “Sports and politics mix just as well as Cosmopolitan Magazine mixes with my raised Ford Super Duty.”  Unfortunately, in American politics, the same principles sports fans adhere to do not apply. Commit a crime against American democracy and your buddies in the Senate will sacrifice every shred of their dignity to make sure you make it through a trial scot-free. Tell Americans to inject themselves with disinfectant and … well … it looks like Fox News is still working on cleaning that mess up.  Listen, sports are how we pass on and instill American values. They’re part of how we teach our society about hard work, fairness and respect. I think we can all agree on that, no matter what kind of car you drive or what cable news network you watch.  I’ve heard statements like this countless times. You’ve heard countless statements like this. We’ve all heard countless statements like this, and despite mounting evidence to disprove said statements, people continue to believe that sports and politics do not belong in the same conversation.  For that reason alone, it looks like Americans still have a lot to learn from sports.  This is because, for better or for worse, fans still value success. They still care about winning, and they care about the people in charge of their teams winning. Hire a schmuck to take over any college or professional franchise and they’ll have the guy tarred and feathered over social media before the hiring is even made official.  Perhaps more than anything else, however, it’s taught me that we actually have quite a lot to learn from sports, more than even I realized despite my card-carrying status as a sports fanatic and wannabe political theorist.  For one, it’s taught me that Chicago Bears fans are the biggest snowflakes that NFL fandom has to offer — I’m looking directly at you, Steven — and it’s also taught me that a lot of the higher ups in professional sports are a bunch of feckless bastards, though I’ll admit that I probably already knew that, to an extent.  USC won the Pac-12 Championship in 2017 and I still considered the season a failure. Clay Helton won eight games last year while playing a backup true freshman at quarterback for the majority of the season. When it was announced that Helton would be back for another go-around, I think a part of the Trojan Family died.  Stuart Carson is a junior writing about the intersection of sports, politics and American society. He is also a sports editor at the Daily Trojan. His column, “The State of Play,” typically ran every other Wednesday. What I’m saying is that in sports, unlike in politics, you can’t pull a fast one over your fans. Whether it’s on the field or on the court, failure and incompetence are on display for all to see, and no amount of bullshit will ever cover it up.  The point I’m trying to make here is that you can’t preach integrity and perseverance to your kid’s Little League team if every time an athlete talks about equality, you throw a fit and turn the game off.  Stupidity and failure. No, I’m not talking about the working title of my pending autobiography. I’m talking about the two things sports fans still never tolerate. last_img read more

Man Utd 1-1 Chelsea: De Gea error gifts Chelsea point at Old Trafford

first_imgA mistake by goalkeeper David de Gea gifted Chelsea an equaliser as Manchester United’s hopes of playing in next season’s Champions League were dented at Old Trafford.With United leading through Juan Mata’s goal against his former club, De Gea spilled Antonio Rudiger’s 30-yard attempt for Marcos Alonso to level shortly before the interval.It was a costly error by the Spaniard, whose form has come under scrutiny in recent weeks, although De Gea did come to his side’s rescue deep in stoppage time to deny Gonzalo Higuain a dramatic winner.Up until Chelsea’s equaliser, United had been in control yet they remain sixth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with two games to play, after a third successive league game without a win.In a competitive game, both teams suffered injuries.After Rudiger was forced off in the 64th minute, United defender Eric Bailly, who was making his first league start since 3 February, was helped off six minutes later.–Source: BBC Sportlast_img read more
