Chelsea also have an easier run-in and Conte said he was sure his players can handle the pressure. I prefer to play for the title instead of not fighting for the title and being calm. Chelsea mustered just one shot in the first half against the Red Devils, their lowest total in a Premier League first half this season. These three points were phenomenal.
I told the coaches at the start of the year if we got in it was going to be (Sunday) in Game 82.

The Hammers were beaten 3-0 at Arsenal on Wednesday in their latest setback and face a critical home fixture against fellow relegation candidates Swansea City on Saturday. This is a very unusual league. "We have a little handicap on the points front". "It's not being negative, it's being realistic. We have to bring that gap where it was five games ago, make it like this or keep it like this, minimum".
Ander Herrera scored one goal, set up another and executed the ideal man-marking job on Eden Hazard to set up Manchester United's 2-0 win over Chelsea that opened up the Premier League title race on Sunday. The two Manchester sides meet at the Etihad Stadium on 27 April. "The satisfaction is for different reasons". "With Liverpool and Manchester City victories, if we don't win then goodbye Premier League", Mourinho said.
Alonso's absence, in particular, unbalanced Chelsea, which put in its worst performance since a 3-0 loss to Arsenal in September that forced manager Antonio Conte into a season-defining switch to a 3-4-3 formation. In all, perhaps as many as seven players could claim this was their best performance for United, and that is a testament to the management of Mourinho, who was animated on the touchline, demonstratively directing his players and cajoling from the technical area, particularly ...
On the best day for Americans in the Boston Marathon's prize-money era, it was a man who took almost six hours to finish who provided the most indelible image of American pride.

At 6-feet, 11-inches tall, he is listed as a shooting guard or small forward.
The chase for 73 wins took its toll. Did fatigue factor in when it mattered most? Warriors coach Steve Kerr keeps saying so. The best-of-seven Western Conference series continues Wednesday night in Houston. As previously mentioned, it was the Blazers' two stars in Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum who truly did the heavy lifting, though. The gap is just too big now.
The manager has faced increasing calls to step down when his contract expires this summer. At the moment especially, it would be inconvenient for me to speak about me. "So if you can get at them you can get into the box and make chances", said Big Sam of Arsenal's full backs who are allowed to push high up the field.
With all that said, it is only fair to point out that Thomas played about as well as he could have, Al Horford had a near triple double, and the team shot 36.8% from 3 and still managed to lose game 1. Thomas deciding to play was the story and him grieving publicly was voyeuristic porn. "Me and Isaiah have known each other since we were kids, since we were 11, 12 years old".
The hosts led from the 11th to the 88th minute on a dramatic evening at the Liberty Stadium . But Dele Alli equalised with his 15th league goal of the season, and then Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen struck in injury time to keep second-placed Spurs within seven points of Chelsea.

The Cleveland Cavaliers look to hold serve at home tonight in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference First Round Series with the Indiana Pacers at Quicken Loans Arena.
The Blackhawks talked before Game 2 about making adjustments, such as crowding Rinne and playing with more of an edge. After their crap first period, they showed up in the second dominating Nashville. Roman Josi is as steady as ever, but both Ryan Ellis and Mattias Ekholm are older, more experienced and ready to take on a much greater role. Chicago saw six players score 20 plus goals, yet no one has stepped up to get that coveted first goal of the series.
Switzer's boyfriend, Thomas Miller, threw a block that knocked Semple out of her way, allowing the 20-year-old runner from Syracuse University to finish the race in 4:20:02 at a time when women were thought to be too fragile for long-distance running.
So I don't know, somebody [is] going to tell me, 'Don't go, ' I don't care, I just go", Ovechkin said . "The players are extraordinarily disappointed and adamantly disagree with the NHL's shortsighted decision to not continue our participation in the Olympics".
Obviously we're getting good performances right now from these guys, but what an experience for these kids. St. Louis leads the best-of-seven series 2-0 heading into games Sunday afternoon and Wednesday night in St. As for the Wild, well, this has to be a frustrating position to be in.

Kohli and Smith - the two premier batsmen in world cricket will be desperate to change the script for their respective teams.
Sanchez has shown signs of huge frustration across a disappointing campaign for the Gunners but Wenger has urged the Chilean to remain professional and see out his contract in north London . Playing football is what makes me happy. While Sanchez wants to win trophies and join a team that has the same hunger and desire as he does, Arsenal will not be willing to sell their best player to a Premier League rival.

This game showed that the Pacers can push the Cavaliers to the brink and if IN makes one or two more plays the Pacers could have been the team up 1-0 IN the series. I thought defensively we were pretty good outside the loose balls they got, the offensive rebounds and putbacks, the 50/50 balls we didn't get to they scored on.
Columbus, with good reason, expects him to be a difference-maker for a lot of years. "We had our chances in overtime", he said. With the Pens trailing 3-2 in the second period, Werenski got in front of Phil Kessel , who fired the puck right under the Blue Jackets defenseman's right eye.
After missing a 5-foot birdie at the 72nd hole, Garcia had to get through one extra hole to finally remove the stigma of being considered the best player never to win one of golf's biggest events.

He finished in top- 10 at Augusta three times (2002, 2004, 2013), now has the most career top-10s in majors all-time, and joins his idols Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal as one of three Spainiards to win the Masters.
This is just another thing that we're going to deal with together. "There's been a lot of hard times before, now we're starting to have some good times". We'll let the draft happen.

I don't think the goal here is just to make the playoffs. The Cleveland Cavaliers' NBA struggles continued as the Boston Celtics took control of the Eastern Conference , while the Golden State Warriors' streak was ended. The Magic , who led by as many as 21 points in the first quarter, allowed the Pistons to surge ahead in the fourth quarter in a game matching two non-playoff teams.

He suffered a leg injury and is done for the playoffs. Yes, he'd like to have the OT victor in Game One back, but by and large, the Leafs have had the benefit of their starter outplaying the opposing goalie-and when the opposing goalie is Braden Holtby , that's no mean feat.

I have a concern because we have to work together and find quickly the right ambition to win this title. Chelsea didn't have a shot on target in a league game for the first time in almost a decade. Much of the pre-match buildup focused on Liverpool's issues in coping with set-pieces - a real strength of West Bromwich under Tony Pulis. Goals by Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera sank Chelsea and, with six games left for the top two, there is little room for any more slip-ups by Antonio ...
