Mata eyes Premier League success

first_img Press Association The 25-year-old playmaker has won the World Cup and European Championships with Spain and has now added the Europa League to the Champions League Chelsea won in 2012. Following the 2-1 victory over Benfica in Amsterdam, Mata hopes to realise his ambition of winning the Premier League in his third season at Stamford Bridge next term, and he said: “I feel very proud of what I have done, but I want to do more. I want to win more trophies, for example the Premier League. It would be very special for me.” Juan Mata is targeting winning the Barclays Premier League with Chelsea after adding the Europa League to his already impressive haul of silverware.center_img He added: “It’s the first time for a club to win the Champions League one season and the Europa League the following season. It’s very difficult to do it in two consecutive seasons and I think we feel really proud of this team.” Brazil defender or midfielder David Luiz shares Mata’s desire for a Premier League title. “We need to win titles,” Luiz said. “This is a big club. Always you have the opportunity to play big games, play important competitions, so next year Chelsea want more European titles, want the Premier League, want everything. “The team has a lot of quality that’s why we won two big trophies in two years. “The Premier League this season was a little bit bad [but] I think this team has a lot of quality for the Premier League next year.” last_img read more

Pochettino focused on top four

first_img Pochettino takes his sixth-placed Spurs, who are seven points adrift of fourth-placed United, to his former club Southampton for the first time on Saturday, with the battle for European football high on the agenda. If Arsenal beat Aston Villa in the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 30, the seventh-placed team in the Premier League will qualify for the Europa League. “This season realistically it’s very difficult to reach the top four,” Pochettino said. “(But) never is it a problem when you have the possibility to play in Europe. “In football you need to try and take the positive result and always win. “If you achieve the Europa League it might not be the dream of the club or the supporters but you need to play it because it is good for the financial side of the club. “The most important thing is to be ambitious or to understand we need to try and build a strong team for next season to fight for the top four. “It’s very difficult to manage the Europa League with the Premier League and both cups. You spend a lot of energy when you play in the Europa League and it’s not easy, but you never know. Pochettino has bemoaned the impact playing on Thursday nights across Europe has had on his side’s Premier League campaign, while looking ruefully at Manchester United’s top-four march having finished seventh last term. Liverpool reached Europe’s elite competition after finishing second last term when without a continental distraction and this term have struggled to cope with the dual focus. “It’s true the experience last season with Liverpool and now with Manchester United, I think it’s a clear example that maybe you will have the opportunity to stay closer to reaching the top four if you only are focused on the Premier League and the cups.” Pochettino dismissed the prospect of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who could return after missing three matches with a knee injury, seeking a move if Spurs miss out on the top four this term. “Hugo wants to play the Champions League here for Tottenham and I think this is a rumour and nothing true,” added the Spurs boss, whose only definite absentee is Kyle Walker. “Hugo is very happy here and wants to reach the Champions League with Tottenham. This is his dream.” Pochettino is looking forward to returning to St Mary’s with Spurs after leaving Southampton last summer. The Argentine headed a host of departures – including key players and the backroom staff – leaving successor Ronald Koeman to rebuild. “We finished last season eighth in the table,” said Pochettino, recalling his time at Southampton. “We played very well and it was the end the project of five years with Nicola Cortese and Markus Liebherr. “We stabilised the club in the Premier League and top 10 and I’m very happy it was good for Southampton because I love the people of Southampton, the players. “Koeman has continued to develop the project, or a new project, and it’s a fantastic job and he deserves the praise.” Pochettino is uncertain what reception to expect. “I don’t expect nothing special,” he said. “I love the people at the club, the players, because in one-and-a-half years I enjoyed a lot because it was one of the best periods of my life.” Press Association Manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted missing out on European football could aid Tottenham’s bid to qualify for the Champions League next season. last_img read more

Cricket News 134 runs, 8/15 in a Twenty20 – Krishnappa Gowtham becomes one-man demolition army in Karnataka Premier League T20

first_imghighlights New Delhi: The M Chinnaswamy stadium witnessed one of the dream all-round performances in a Twenty20 match in recent times. In a Karnataka Premier League Twenty20 game between Bellary Tuskers and Shimoga Lions, Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham blasted an unbeaten 134* and contributed 66 percent of Bellary’s total of 203/3. Gowtham came back and decimated the Shimoga batting line-up to take 8/15 in four overs to help Bellary Tuskers beat Shimoga Lions by 70 runs courtesy the VJD method. Gowtham’s all-round show was simply sensational and it broke plenty of world records. In a match reduced to 17 overs due to rain, Bellary Tuskers chose to bat but they lost CM Gautam cheaply for 13. However, Gowtham started with a bang by blasting two sixes off HS Sarath. Abhishek Reddy struck some big blows and raced to 34 off 16 before he was stumped by Manjunath. That set the stage for Gowtham to explode. Gowtham blasted two sixes and a four off Prithviraj Shekhawat and he notched up his fifty off 24 balls by launching Manjunath for yet another six. After reaching his fifty, Gowtham tore into the spinner by launching him for four consecutive sixes in the 12th over. Gowtham did not spare Abhimanyu Mithun by launching him for a six and a four and he notched up his century off just 39 balls as he blasted a six and a four off Sharath. Gowtham regularly found the boundary in the death overs and his knock of 134* ended with seven fours and 13 sixes as Bellary Tuskers reached 203/3 in 17 overs. In response, Akshay Ballal and Pavan Deshpande, who was picked in the Royal Challengers Bangalore side, stitched a 99-run stand for the third wicket. However, Gowtham, who had taken the wicke of Arjun Hoysala in the beginning, came back and took 8/15 as Shimoga lost seven wickets for 25 runs to lose by 70 runs. The exploits of Gowtham made him a big trend on social media, with former Australian batsman Dean Jones hailing his all-round exploits. Gowtham’s brilliance has put him in several records books and it will be tough for any player to replicate this feat in Twenty20s in the near future.  Krishnappa Gowtham slammed 66 percent of the team’s runs.Gowtham blasted a century off just 39 balls. Gowtham took 8/15 as Bellary Tuskers won by 70 runs via VJD method.center_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Cricket News Shreyas Iyer Claims Hitting Three Sixes In One Over Changed India’s Momentum Vs Bangladesh

first_imgNew Delhi: India had started poorly in the third and final Twenty20 International against Bangladesh at the VACA stadium in Nagpur. They had lost skipper Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan cheaply but they were revived by a superb partnership between KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. However, Bangladesh did not help themselves when they dropped Iyer on 1 and the duo went on to establish a solid stand. Rahul notched up his sixth fifty but he fell for 52. Bangladesh were pulling things back in the death overs but in the 15th over bowled by Afif Hossain, Iyer blasted three consecutive sixes and reached his maiden fifty.Iyer’s knock ensured India had momentum in the death overs to end on 174/5. The Mumbai right-hander believes that the three sixes in Afif’s over was vital as India could have finished with just 150 or 155 without the onslaught. “The over in which I got three sixes shifted the momentum in our favour otherwise we would have finished with 150 of 155. It would have been a really tough to defend that total on this wicket where there was a lot of dew and pitch was getting better for batting. I would really give myself credit and also KL Rahul for the way he gave us the start,” Iyer said. Bangladesh, in response, made a spirited start and were led by Mohammad Naim’s 81. The left-hander’s knock became the highest individual score by a Bangladesh player in T20Is vs India.Iyer admitted that India were under pressure when Naim was batting well and had shared a good partnership with Mohammad Mithun. “We were going a little bit lethargic I would say at the start and once they got going Rohit recalled all the players inside the circle and gave us a pep talk, which was really motivating and after that we were really determined to win the game,” Iyer admitted.Iyer has been performing consistently in the domestic circuit for the last couple of seasons now as India look to zero in on their number four batsmen. The No.4 spot was the achillees heel for India in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup but Iyer says he got to know that he would be batting at the No.4 spot after the team management told him about it. Also Read | Deepak Chahar Reveals Secret Behind World Record Haul, Hat-Trick In T20I Vs Bangladesh”It has been a really important last few series for me to set the benchmark at the No. 4 position, which all of us are competing for at the moment. Even if Kohli and Rohit get out, we need someone to finish the game and bat till the end.’ That is a No. 4’s role. That’s what I was trying to replicate today and it worked out really well for me. I am really open-minded and can bat at any number. So I just like to back myself in tough situations and today’s innings showed that I can bat under pressure as well. The support staff have given me the freedom — not just me but all the batsmen — that you need to have that intent when you go in there. And you should feel very positive when you’re batting. If the ball pitches in my area, I am not going to control myself. I’ll bat according to my instincts,” Iyer said.

Syracuse defense prepares for daunting test in high-octane Albany offense

first_imgIt will only be Syracuse’s second game of the season, but Sunday’s matchup might present the toughest offense it’ll face all year.The young Orange defense will be pitted against a familiar foe in Albany, who hung 16 goals on Syracuse a year ago and finished last season as the No. 1 attack in the nation.“We’re playing probably the best attack in the country, besides our team,” SU defender Sean Young said. “It’s definitely going to be a tough game, so everyone has to be on the same page.”Syracuse certainly remembers what the Great Danes did to it last season. The three-headed monster of brothers Lyle and Miles Thompson and their cousin Ty accounted for 10 of Albany’s 16 goals, including the game-winner in double overtime that shocked the Orange on its home field. The rematch is Sunday at 4 p.m., and No. 2 Syracuse’s (1-0) defense has the daunting task of stopping No. 11 Albany’s (0-0) high-octane offense to protect the Carrier Dome turf.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“They really look for one another very well,” SU head coach John Desko said. “Lyle’s a great feeder. Miles has become better at carrying the ball. Even though some people think of (Lyle) as the third attackman, we can’t think of him that way.”Although Syracuse’s defense allowed just seven goals to Siena on Monday, it wasn’t as sharp as it could’ve been.For the goal that put the Saints on the board, a screen was set for ball carrier Richie Hurley behind the net. Brandon Mullins couldn’t get through the pick and Matt Harris reverted back to the crease, giving Hurley plenty of space to curl to his right toward the doorstep. Young was late to get over, and an uncontested Hurley scored on Dominic Lamolinara. In transition four and a half minutes later, Siena’s Nate Barry split a double team at the 20-yard line. Mullins stepped up to pick up Barry, but Hurley was left unguarded at the crease on Lamolinara’s right. Barry flipped a pass ahead to Hurley, who jumped, corralled the pass and flicked it in with one motion for the second of his four goals.“We watched film, we know what we did wrong and we know how to correct it,” Mullins said. Those “uncharacteristic” mistakes, as Young called them, were against a team that averaged 11.29 goals per game last year. Albany led the country with 15.94 scores a contest, more than a full goal per game better than the nations’ second-leading team.Mullins is Syracuse’s only defensive carryover from that season-opening game last year, as the three starters from the Orange’s defense graduated last May. SU will start Sunday’s game playing man-to-man defense, Desko said, but will be open to utilizing some zone defense as a change-up to throw at the Great Danes, who will be opening their season.When the Thompson trio burned the Orange’s defense a year ago, it wasn’t in fast-break opportunities that Siena took advantage of three times Monday. The Great Danes proved their ability to move the ball quickly in their offensive sets and capitalize from point-blank range.“Everyone knows they have a great attack,” Mullins said. “They’re very freelance, so they’re kind of hard to scout. They’re really creative.”The accolades speak for themselves. Lyle Thompson, who dished out six assists against SU, was a first-team All-American last year and a finalist for the Tewaaraton Award. Miles Thompson was an honorable mention All-American and scored in each of the 12 games he played. Ty Thompson netted five goals against the Orange, finished fourth in the country in points per game, and topped Albany in goals for the year.And they certainly proved they can play together. One Thompson fed another for a score six times the night they beat Syracuse.To clinch the double-overtime victory over the No. 12 Orange, Lyle Thompson dodged along the goal line from the left corner, reached the crease and hit a wide-open Miles with a cross-crease pass, and gave the Great Danes their first win over the Orange in 11 tries.“We’d be so focused on the player with the ball, slide early to him and leave someone open on the crease,” SU goalie Bobby Wardwell said. “I think we’re going to be much better prepared for them when they come here this year. “There won’t be any surprises.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 15, 2014 at 4:11 pm Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbblast_img read more

The unranked Wolfpack surrendered a goal in the 77th-minute to fall to North Florida, 3-2 on Sunday. The contest is the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams.If Syracuse wins, it’ll be the first year it won its first five games since 1984, when SU started 7-0. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Friday’s game.All-time series: Syracuse leads 3-2-1Last time they played: The Orange played the Wolfpack twice last year in a two-week span. On Oct. 23 at SU Soccer Stadium, a Louis Cross front-post header with less than five minutes left gave No.15 Syracuse the 2-1 win. In the first round of the ACC tournament on Nov. 4, the Orange shut out NC State 2-0 en route to its first ACC championship and College Cup appearance.The North Carolina State report: The Wolfpack is off to a somewhat slow start, coming off two losses to unranked nonconference opponents. Only three different Wolfpack players have scored a goal this year, whereas six SU players have already scored. But NC State has a strong team, Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre said. The Wolfpack went 2-3-3 last year vs. Top 25 teams. Two of those three losses came to Syracuse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHow Syracuse beats North Carolina State: Continue to spread the wealth and maintain possession.

Taiwo, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound redshirt sophomore, has overcome two ACL tears to become one of the conference’s best offensive players thus far this year. The 2012 North Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year scored two goals last year. He’s already surpassed that total in three games.“I think what you’re seeing now is what he’s capable of,” Wolfpack head coach Kelly Findley said.

Babers on head coach openings: ‘I only talk about the job I have’

first_img Published on November 1, 2017 at 12:45 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 UPDATED: Nov. 1, 2017 at 4:40 p.m.In thrusting Syracuse into the national spotlight with a win over Clemson and nearly upsetting No. 9 Miami on the road, Dino Babers vaulted himself into head coaching rumors. Babers is a potential head coach candidate for Florida, the Orlando Sentinel reported.After dropping its third-straight game and falling to 3-4, Florida and coach Jim McElwain parted ways Sunday. The highly competitive position in Gainesville puts several coaches as potential UF job candidates.On Wednesday, Syracuse’s second-year head coach reiterated comments he made Monday, saying he does not talk about contracts mid-season.“I only talk about the job I have,” Babers said. “I have one job. And contracts, I don’t talk about that during season.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLast fall, Babers was a preliminary candidate for Houston’s job opening, the Houston Chronicle reported. When asked about the opening after SU’s season-ending loss to Pittsburgh, Babers said: “The job I have is at Syracuse University, and it’s a heck of a job. And I’m totally, 100 percent locked in on Syracuse.”When later asked if he would be at Syracuse in 2017 no matter what, Babers said, “I already answered the question, I’m locked in on Syracuse. That’s my job.”According to Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel, Babers could use his success this year to negotiate a new deal with SU because his buyout in Year 2 is likely too large to go elsewhere in the Power 5. Syracuse has not lost by more than 11 points this season, including competitive losses at Top 25 opponents in LSU, North Carolina State and Miami on the road. SU is two wins away from ensuring its first bowl eligibility in four years.Over his coaching career since 1984, Babers has made 15 school changes.“I don’t even talk about stuff like that during the season,” Babers said Monday. “I think that Mr. (Director of Athletics John) Wildhack has been unbelievable. I love him as a boss, and he’s a very honest guy which is refreshing. But I don’t talk that kind of stuff during the season. Our whole goal is based off what happens on Saturday and staying focused and being 1-0 this week.”Syracuse (4-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) kicks off against unranked Florida State (2-5, 2-4), the No. 3 team in the Preseason Top 25, on Saturday at 12:20 p.m. in Tallahassee.Additional notes from Babers’ and FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher teleconferences:Babers on the early signing period, which is next month: “I think all the guys committed to us that are in good academic standing will be signing.”Fisher on Syracuse in 2017: “I see them playing with much more confidence. Guys are playing much more faster. You can say that when they play. That to me is the ultimate thing you want to have.”CORRECTION: In a previous version of this post, the length of time Dino Babers has spent as coach at a program was misstated. Babers has spent more than three years as coach at a program. The Daily Orange regrets this error. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
