Liverpool will win the UCL final, here’s why!

first_imgSo we await yet another thrilling UEFA Champions League final by both Tottenham and Liverpool in only the second all-England final in UCL history. The first saw Manchester United face Chelsea in the ‘07-’08 season in what was primarily a lacklustre affair that ended with a Manchester United victory on penalties.But for the 2019 UCL final in Madrid, all eyes are on Liverpool and their trophy-hungry fan base, who are in their second final in two seasons. But Mauricio Pochettino is a proven strategist who goes all out in attack, so I anticipate that Tottenham will put on a good show and exercise their moments of brilliance. But Liverpool have an enviable squad capable of lifting a sixth UCL title. Here are four solid reasons I expect Liverpool to dominate and prevail. 1. THIS IS FAMILIAR TERRITORY Liverpool should not be awed by the occasion in any sense and can go about the business of winning because they have been on this stage before, and only just last season. The opponents back then were a ferocious Real Madrid whose experienced squad made light work of an injured Mo Salah and Klopp’s other boys. Fast-forward to 2019, and Liverpool have already endured the nerves of steel and the most daunting opponents. Tottenham may feel like a cakewalk in comparison.Contrastingly, this Tottenham squad has never been to a major final of any kind, and they are entering their first UEFA Champions League final. Fortune doesn’t often favour the inexperienced. 2. LIVERPOOL HAVE THE BETTER SQUAD Liverpool are superior to Tottenham in all areas of the ballpark, which accounts for why they were 26 points better in the Premier League this season. They have the better keeper in Alisson, the better defenders with Virgil Van Dijk being top of the Premier League, and the better midfield. In attack, the trio of Mane, Salah and Roberto Firmino are potent on any given day. If you think this Liverpool team isn’t dangerous, remember they put away Messi and Barcelona with both Salah and Firmino on the bench. This could be a bloodbath.And Tottenham do have cause for concern. Their brilliance against Ajax aside, this team lost five of their final eight league games this season and lost seven of their 10 games against the top six teams in the premiership. Mora, Kane, and Son may get the job done in attack and were quite effective against a favoured Ajax team in the semi-final, but save for a rare moment of brilliance or a bit of luck, I don’t see Spurs making much of an impact in Madrid. 3. THEY’RE HUNGRY FOR A MAJOR TROPHY Both Liverpool and coach Jurgen Klopp have come, oh so close oh, so often, and still no trophy to date. Both players and coach are eager to taste victory after the familiar sting of second place. Liverpool came within just one point of the Premier League title this season, with the 29-year drought now extended to 30. They’re also 14 seasons away from their last UEFA Champions League win and came oh, so close last year only to crash and burn to Real Madrid. For Klopp, this is his third final, and no UCL title to date. As head coach at Borussia Dortmund, he was runner-up to Bayern Munich in the all-German Final in 2013. Last year, he had to settle for second place as Real Madrid prevailed 3-1. Let’s see if third time’s the charm for Klopp. 4. HISTORY FAVOURS LIVERPOOL While it’s Tottenham’s first time at the rodeo, Liverpool have reached their ninth overall final, an English record. They’ve won on five previous occasions, also an English record. It’s their second final in a row. Liverpool spell Champions League pedigree. In head-to-head stats, Liverpool are pretty much the heavyweights in this bout, with a whopping 81 wins compared to Tottenham’s 48.But football is never played on paper, and so we wait to see what happens this season. Both teams have met twice this season, and Liverpool have won 2-1 on both occasions. That’s the narrowest of victories. Hopefully, tomorrow will delight! One love.last_img read more

Latest Austin speculation and Chelsea reportedly snub Alderweireld deal

first_imgFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook A round-up of the latest transfer speculation involving Chelsea and QPR…The Telegraph believes Tottenham are edging closer to capturing Toby Alderweireld after Chelsea snubbed a potential chance to sign him from Atletico Madrid.Atletico offered Alderweireld, who was on loan at Southampton last season, to the Blues as part of a bid to re-sign Filipe Luis, who has been linked with a return to the Spanish club.AdChoices广告The Telegraph say Chelsea were not keen and Spurs are looking to tie up a deal to sign the defender.West Ham have launched a bid to sign Mohamed Salah from Chelsea, according to the Daily Mirror.There has been much speculation about Salah’s future since the end of last season, which he ended on loan at Fiorentina, who are keen to keep him.Several other clubs have been linked with the Egyptian, including Tottenham, Inter Milan and Juventus.And the Mirror reports that West Ham want to take Salah, 23, on loan with a view to a permanent move.There continues to be speculation about Salah’s long-term futureFollowing reports in the Italian media, the Daily Mail say Chelsea have discussed a £10.7m bid for Augsburg’s Ghana left-back Baba Rahman, who is said to be a target for Juventus.Oscar continues to be linked with a possible move to Juve.The Mirror say he could offloaded by Chelsea in exchange for Paul Pogba, who has been consistently linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.And the Daily Star say Atletico Madrid will  snub a cash plus-player-offer from the Blues for Antoine Griezmann.Chelsea, it is claimed, are willing to give Atletico either Salah or Filipe Luis for the forward, who is apparently rated at £43m.Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Tuesday that Chelsea could offer Salah as part of a swap deal for Griezmann.Meanwhile, Charlie Austin has reservations about joining Newcastle, the Mail claim.Austin is keen to secure a move following QPR’s relegationQPR want £15m for striker Austin and have had no offers or approaches despite numerous reports of them receiving both strong interest and bids from several clubs, including the Magpies, Chelsea, Southampton, West Ham, Liverpool and Crystal Palace.Newcastle were tipped to sign him, others were reported to be keen, and there is now speculation about why no move has yet materialised.The Mail suggest Austin, 25, has misgivings about signing for Newcastle and has other options, while the Telegraph say he is concerned he could be priced out of a move and will plead with QPR to lower the asking price.last_img read more

Losing streak front of mind for Mississippi State

first_img Mississippi State at Oregon State Today, 3 p.m., Pac-12 NetworkGill Coliseum, Corvallis, Oregon STARKVILLE – Craig Sword and Fred Thomas don’t like thinking about the program’s road losing streak.But it’s difficult to ignore when third-year coach Rick Ray brings up the 18-straight true road losses for Mississippi State.“After we lost (to Tulane), our coach harped on it a little bit,” Thomas said. “Then it came back to mind. We really have to get it. This is a big game for us, this next one.”The next one is Oregon State today at 3 p.m. It’s the fourth consecutive game away from Humphrey Coliseum for the Bulldogs. MSU is in the midst of a one-month span where it will play one home game. So far, Mississippi State is 1-1 at neutral sites and lost its only road game. Overall, the Bulldogs have lost 18 consecutive road games dating to Ray’s first season in 2013.“I try not to think about it. I try to move on to the next game,” Sword said.MSU’s recent road loss came by four points at Tulane. The score only tells part of the defeat. Mississippi State tied the game with 2:36 remaining. It didn’t score again.It’s an outcome that occurred in Years 1 and 2 under Ray when Thomas and Sword were freshmen and sophomores.This year is expected to be different.“When it’s that close going down the stretch, I expect us to win that game,” Sword said.Battling flu-like symptoms, Sword played two minutes against Tulane. The illness is gone but Sword’s recovery from back surgery is ongoing. MSU’s leading scorer from last season hasn’t played more than 11 minutes in a game this season. He’s yet to score in the three games.“It’s real hard to sit there and watch. But they’ve been doing a pretty good job,” Sword said.Sword wasn’t on the floor in the final three minutes against Tulane. Thomas pointed to a lack of communication and rebounding.“I feel like that’s how we lost that game,” Thomas said.MSU had a week to fix those problems heading in to Oregon State. The Beavers are 5-2 and undefeated at home. Their two losses this season came to Power 5 opponents (Oklahoma State and Auburn).last_img read more

Paulo Dybala to Man United latest from Italy: Fear of figures…

first_imgIf you had told Manchester United fans there was a concrete chance they would start next season with Paulo Dybala in their squad, laughter would probably have been their response. Yet, here we are, a week away from the end of the Premier League transfer window, and some see the possibility as edging towards reality.Returning early from his holidays to sort out his situation, Dybala should come to a decision about his future sooner rather than later, especially now that ‘he knows he is more wanted by the Old Trafford club than his current employers’, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.As has been widely reported over the past 48 hours, Thursday is the day the Argentine will sit down with both Fabio Paratici and Maurizio Sarri, but that talk seems more out of desperation than anything else.It’s stated that, after all, everyone already knows everything, and ‘Juventus aren’t a team who easily change their mind when it comes to their transfer strategy’.Gazzetta almost see the chat as futile, believing that all Dybala will learn is the reasons why he’s being pushed aside for Romelu Lukaku, to which he will reply moving to the Premier League isn’t a ‘priority’ for him, preferring to continue in Turin.It’s said that even Sarri, who actually quite likes the Argentine, will find it ‘difficult’ to ‘turn the situation around’ as he ‘cannot ignore the arrival of a great striker’.Embed from Getty ImagesThe ball is firmly in Dybala’s court, and Gazzetta explain the ’simplest solution is the one that already seems written’: to accept United’s offer at the right conditions, say goodbye to Juventus and to start a new life without his number 10, without the black and white shirt and without Champions League.It’s believed the forward will ‘at least take a couple of days to think about it and see if there are alternatives’, like Paris Saint-Germain, a ‘more appreciated yet improbable option’.Gazzetta write that ‘at this moment, it’s as difficult to see an offer arrive from France for Dybala as it is to think of a different solution to Manchester’.Seeing as both parties value their players similarly, there shouldn’t be too much problem in settling matters at club level.As for the players, Lukaku will earn €9m/year net bonuses included, while Dybala has asked Manchester United for €10m/net (£175k/week after tax)However, and it’s a huge one, things are very, and we mean *very*, different over at Corriere dello Sport.For them, Dybala is clear: he does not want to go to Manchester United, having said no to the move.It’s also stated the Premier League club ‘seemed frightened’ by some of the figures demanded by the player’s entourage.Then, they throw the biggest curveball we’ve encountered so far, claiming that Inter have entered the mix, interested in a swap deal involving Mauro Icardi and Paulo Dybala.The idea is to tug on Sarri’s heartstrings, as he loves the former Sampdoria striker, which would also prevent Juventus from getting Lukaku (Conte’s favoured option).This whole thing is very much presented as a ‘revenge’ option for Dybala, allowing him to stick two fingers up at Juventus for trying to force him out of the club all the while giving Inter the chance of getting rid of Icardi and putting a spanner in the Serie A champions’ attempts to sign the Belgian in one swift move.Could this really happen? It seems extremely far fetched, but it’s a situation that could end up pleasing everyone except Manchester United.Oh, and Romelu Lukaku.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoMisterStocksUnbelievable and Funny Photos Taken At The SubwayMisterStocksUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Fantasy Updates: DeSean Jackson, Jerick McKinnon injury news; Dare Ogunbowale a PPR sleeper?

first_imgDOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2019 Fantasy Cheat SheetWill DeSean Jackson play Week 1?Jackson broke his left ring finger in Eagles practice on Tuesday. Ian Rapoport reported that Philadelphia isn’t concerned about Jackson’s status for Week 1, though. The Eagles take on a vulnerable Washington defense to open the season in 11 days.Early reports out of training camp were that Jackson was enjoying his return to Philadelphia, as he and Carson Wentz had formed a good deep-ball rapport. Jackson qualifies as one of fantasy football’s most volatile receivers, but he’s still a worthwhile FLEX option each week because of his single-game upside.2019 STANDARD RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker | Top 200Jerick McKinnon injury updateMcKinnon hadn’t practiced in nearly three weeks because of a knee injury, and there was speculation that he could open the season on IR. McKinnon returned to practice Tuesday, though, making that seem unlikely. He was a high-profile signing by San Francisco a year ago but has yet to play regular-season snaps for the 49ers. McKinnon’s absence allowed Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida to strengthen their grip on San Fran’s top-two RB spots, so it’s unclear how he’ll fit back int he mix early in the season. McKinnon would have the potential to be a PPR weapon if he could ever get healthy, but he’s probably not much of a redraft target in standard leagues at this point.2019 PPR RANKINGS:Running back  | Wide receiver  | Tight end  | Top 200 The last thing any fantasy football owner wants as Week 1 approaches is new injury news, and that’s what came Tuesday when it was reported that DeSean Jackson broke a finger. It sounds like he’ll be OK, though, and Eagles’ fans and fantasy owners both breathed sighs of relief. There was also positive news on the health front for oft-injured 49ers’ running back Jerick McKinnon. In Tampa Bay, there are reports of an unexpected sleeper as the favorite for the third-down job: Dare Ogunbowale. With one final week for fantasy players to draft and prepare for the start of the season, be sure to make note of these latest happenings in your rankings and cheat sheets.For more updates and the latest fantasy news, follow us on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.  Who is Dare Ogunbowale?Ogunbowale could open the season as Tampa Bay’s third-down back, according to Pewter Report. The 2017 undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin has spent two seasons as an NFL journeyman but has impressed in the preseason, rushing 30 times for 90 yards and two TDs and adding five catches for 73 yards. DRAFT STRATEGY AND RANKINGS TIERS: Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/STDare Ogunbowale has gotten a lot of buzz this preseason. He just ran for a TD. Remember the name. #TBvsPIT #Buccaneers #NFL #Steelers pic.twitter.com/keUXSELUly— Billy Heyen (@Wheyen3) August 10, 2019A passing-down role in Bruce Arians’ offense could reap big rewards for Ogunbowale. In David Johnson’s two 16-start seasons with Arians, he averaged 98 targets per season. Ogunbowale isn’t as talented as Johnson, but some things in fantasy (especially PPR leagues) come down to opportunity, and he might have some. He’s also the brother of former Notre Dame women’s basketball star Arike Ogunbowale, who hit two buzzer-beaters to win the national semifinal and title game in 2018, so that’s gotta count for something.last_img read more

Miller saves Proteas from yet another choke

first_imgDavid Miller will probably now want a wicketkeeping gig more often after he starred in that role – as well with the bat – in the Proteas’ nervy Super Over victory over Sri Lanka in the first T20 at Newlands on Tuesday night.South Africa had managed to throw away what seemed a comfortable victory, self-destructing from 118/3 to 134/8 to merely manage a tie.But Miller stepped up his game, hitting 13 of the 14 runs the Proteas scored in their six-ball shootout before the wily Imran Tahir only conceded five.It was hard on the Sri Lankans, who fought every step of the way, but it also really shouldn’t have come down to that.Nonetheless, Miller enjoyed an outstanding evening.The 29-year-old was handed the gloves for the game despite Quinton de Kock’s presence in a move designed to test his credentials as the potential backup keeper at this year’s World Cup.He certainly did those no harm.Miller was in the thick of things as early as the second ball of the match when he held a regulation catch from a Niroshan Dickwella drive off Dale Steyn.Later on, he read an Imran Tahir googly perfectly to have Kamindu Mendis, who was the islanders’ batting mainstay with 41 off 29, stumped.It proved to be a crucial moment as South Africa struck twice in five balls to cripple Sri Lanka’s batting effort.Andile Phehlukwayo the pick of the bowlers with excellent figures of 3/25.In fact, that haul would’ve looked even better had he not been hit for two fours off his last two deliveries.Miller’s biggest contribution though was with the bat.Coming in at 52/3, he showed his intent by dispatching leggie Jeffrey Vandersay for four off the first delivery he faced.Yet it was the sublime 20 runs he took off Isuru Udana’s second over that put South Africa in the driving seat.He also combined well with the composed Rassie van der Dussen (34 off 30) in a record fourth-wicket stand of 66.Miller’s run out though did spark the Proteas’ implosion, who were far too overeager to finish the game quickly.Lasith Malinga’s brilliant spell of 2/11 had strangled the lower order and the islanders could’ve won had Dickwella not missed three open stumps when Dale Steyn ran the bye that ensured a tie.For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more
