Southampton’s Ings returns to sink Burnley

Southampton’s in-form striker Danny Ings grabbed an early goal to secure a 1-0 win at his former club Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.

Ings continued his prolific scoring for the Saints, having now netted 25 of their 54 goals since the start of last season, as he struck in the fifth minute at Turf Moor.nfl cheap jerseys nike

Kyle Walker-Peters played a superb pass through to Che Adams and, with Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope rushing off his line, the forward squared the ball to Ings who turned it home.8

Injury-ravaged Burnley had an appeal for a penalty rejected when Chris Wood went down after Polish defender Jan Bednarek laid his hands on his back and there was more controversy involving the New Zealand international after the break.

Wood got behind the Saints defence to latch on to a long ball but the assistant flagged for offside with the Burnley striker continuing his run and putting the ball in the net.nfl nike jerseys for cheap

VAR rules instruct officials not to flag or whistle until a move is complete, leading to confusion and frustration on the bench with the Burnley staff believing Wood was onside.

England international Ings had the ball in the net again in the final minutes but that too was disallowed for offside.

Leeds United seal win at Sheffield United with late Bamford goal

Patrick Bamford’s 88th-minute header gave Leeds United a 1-0 win at Sheffield United in their Yorkshire Premier League derby on Sunday.

Jack Harrison whipped in a superb cross from the left wing and Bamford rose well to score for the third straight game and leave Chris Wilder’s side without a point or a goal this season.

Leeds’ keeper Illan Meslier produced a superb save on 29 minutes from a close-range effort by John Lundstram after good work from Ben Osborn down the left.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

Marcelo Bielsa’s side threatened before the break, though, and Sheffield United keeper Aaron Ramsdale did well to keep out a lofted shot from Stuart Dallas.7

Meslier was alert again after the break when George Baldock turned sharply on the edge of the box to lose his marker and unleash a powerful drive but the 20-year-old keeper parried well.

Helder Costa then threatened with a stinging volley that was kept out by the diving Ramsdale.

Bamford’s fine header, however, ensured that Leeds move to six points from their first three games on their return to the top flight after a 16-year absence.

“It was a just result,” Bielsa said. “The first half was even. We could’ve scored but also conceded. The second half was a lot better for us. I think we created a small but just difference to create the victory.”nfl cheap jerseys nike

Sheffield United had lost to Aston Villa and Wolves before the Leeds game and manager Wilder said it had been a tough month.

“We’ll be glad to see the back of September. Fresh start in October at Arsenal away. I can’t fault a lot of things the players did in the game. I thought it was really tight, you have got to take the chances in the Premier League.

“We have to be more clinical, the best chances fell to us, we know how Leeds play, high energy and high tempo. We ultimately got punished by a fantastic ball and a great header.”

Diego Valeri stars as Portland Timbers hit six past listless San Jose Earthquakes

Diego Valeri scored twice for the first time since the 2017 season and added an assist to lead the visiting Portland Timbers to a 6-1 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night.

Jeremy Ebobisse, Yimmi Chara, Julio Cascante and Jaroslaw Niezgoda also scored for the Timbers, who drew the Quakes 1-1 in the clubs’ previous meeting, also in San Jose, on Wednesday.

The win marked Portland’s highest scoring performance of the season as well as their second time in the last six matches of scoring four or more goals. They moved up three spots into fifth place in the Western Conference with the win.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

Carlos Fierro scored the lone goal for San Jose, which suffered its second-worst defeat of the season after a 7-1 loss to the Seattle Sounders on Sept. 10. The Earthquakes had managed two draws between those defeats but are now winless in their last seven matches and remain last in the West.8

The Timbers took the lead in the 25th minute after a somewhat unfortunate bounce for the Quakes, when a bouncing ball struck San Jose defender Shea Salinas in the arm for a clear handball.

Referee Rosendo Mendoza pointed to the penalty spot, and Valeri stepped up and drove a low finish into the left corner past Daniel Vega’s dive.

Portland doubled its lead only two minutes later. A San Jose defender cleared away the initial cross from a free kick from the right. The ball cycled to Jorge Villafana on the opposite flank, who drove in a second cross toward the back post, where Ebobisse met it with a powerful header past Vega.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Fierro pulled the Quakes back within one just before halftime. Marcos Lopez dragged a cross from the left back toward the top of the penalty area, and Fierro hit a first-time, left-footed shot past Aljaz Ivacic and inside the right post.

But Valeri’s second goal 12 minutes after halftime, on a one-time strike of Yimmi Chara’s cross, began a cascade of four unanswered goals for the visitors.

Chara’s goal made it 4-1 in the 70th minute, Cascante headed in Valeri’s free kick in the 85th and Niezgoda completed an attack set up by Diego Chara in the 87th.

Colorado Rapids defeat 10-man LA Galaxy

Cole Bassett and Jonathan Lewis scored goals for the Colorado Rapids in their 2-0 victory over the LA Galaxy Saturday night in Carson, Calif.nfl cheap jerseys nike

Lewis’ fourth goal of the season sealed the win for the Rapids, who have lost just once in the past six games. Colorado vaulted into sixth place and a postseason position in the MLS Western Conference.

The Galaxy played with 10 men from the 75th minute on after Julian Araujo was shown a red card. Araujo drew a yellow card for a foul in the 72nd minute, then was given red for his reaction to the call.

Bassett’s 40th-minute goal gave Colorado a 1-0 lead. Bassett scored off a long cross from fullback Sam Vines, who had no one marking him on the left wing as he dribbled and looked for someone in the box.7

The ball found Bassett’s feet, and his shot was too forceful for David Bingham to stop for the Galaxy.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

Joe Corona got an open look from outside the top of the box in the 42nd minute for the Galaxy, but William Yarbrough stopped it for the Rapids. Yarbrough finished with four saves.

The Galaxy chose not to start a pair of stars, forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and midfielder Jonathan dos Santos, but both came on as substitutes in the 54th minute. Just before that, Yarbrough stopped Ethan Zubak’s redirected cross from in front of the net to keep the Galaxy scoreless.

Bingham came up big for the Galaxy in the 65th minute. After a shot from Lewis hit the goal bar, the rebound remained with the Rapids. Andre Shinyashiki had a chance from close range, only to have Bingham turn him away.

Sterling, Manchester City cruise against relegation-threatened Watford

Watford’s hopes of avoiding relegation suffered a double blow on Tuesday when they were thrashed 4-0 at home by Manchester City and then slipped into the Premier League relegation zone after fellow strugglers Aston Villa beat Arsenal in the late game.

City were inspired by Raheem Sterling who struck twice before half-time at Vicarage Road while Phil Foden and Aymeric Laporte scored after the break as the visitors racked up their 13th straight win over Watford in all competitions.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

The previous two meetings between the sides resulted in an 8-0 home league win for Pep Guardiola’s City side in September and a 6-0 victory in last year’s FA Cup final.

Watford’s only consolation was that the scoreline could have been even worse on Tuesday, although with Villa beating visiting Arsenal 1-0, their fate is no longer in their hands.

Watford are level on 34 points with Villa but have dropped below them into the relegation zone on goal difference. Second-bottom Bournemouth have 31 points but could still escape.8

Watford face Arsenal away in their final game on Sunday when Villa, who have the better goal difference by one, visit West Ham United. Bournemouth travel to Everton knowing they must win and hope the other two lose to have a chance of staying up.

Hayden Mullins, in temporary charge of Watford following the sacking of manager Nigel Pearson on Sunday, watched powerless from the touchline as City went through their routines.

“It was always going to be a tough ask, we knew that. They are a great side with a great manager,” Mullins said.

“City do this to most teams. The minute you come out and give space they take advantage of it.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

“Tomorrow we will look at the performance more, put it to bed and start looking at the next game.”

Watford did have an early chance when Will Hughes slashed a shot miles wide, but it was mainly one-way traffic.

Sterling opened the scoring after 30 minutes with a stunning strike. Controlling Kyle Walker’s driven pass instantly, he looked up and smashed a right-foot effort past Ben Foster.

The England forward doubled City’s lead when he fooled Hughes into a trip inside the area and although Foster saved his spot kick, the rebound fell kindly and Sterling touched the ball home for his 19th league goal of the season.

City, beaten by Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday, hunted for more goals after the break and Foster performed heroics to deny Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne.

He made another save from Sterling in the 63rd minute only for the ball to fall to Foden who tapped it home.

When Laporte headed in a free kick shortly afterwards Watford were reeling, but they avoided any further punishment and had a stroke of luck, that could yet prove crucial, when Gabriel Jesus’s late header was ruled out for offside.

Arsenal shocked as Aston Villa leapfrog into safety zone

Arsenal’s hopes for European competition took a hit in a 1-0 loss as Aston Villa jumped back in the safety zone of the Premier League standings.

Egyptian midfielder Trezeguet’s first-half goal was enough to give Villa the win.

“It was unbelievable, I think it was deserved we were outstanding today,” Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, who was superb throughout, told Sky Sports.

“It’s been a tense day, all we can do is focus on ourselves. It’s up to us what we do on the last day. It feels massive to be out of the relegation zone,” he added.

Mike Arteta made six changes to Arsenal’s lineup that had beat City in Saturday’s FA Cup semifinal.new nike nfl jerseys cheap

“Emotionally and physically it’s been a very demanding week but I saw a team whio wanted to fight until the end. I’m not disappointed about the attitude — I know where we are in certain areas and where we need to improve more. We will get that,” Arteta said.

Tuesday’s loss also seemingly ensures 10th place Arsenal can only reach the Europa League next season by winning the FA Cup final against Chelsea on Aug. 1 (stream the FA Cup final in the U.S. on ESPN+).7

Arsenal, who can no longer finish than eighth, are also guaranteed to have their worst Premier League finish since 1995.

“It tells you the gap doesn’t lie. We have to make that smaller and smaller,” Arteta added.

Trezeguet was one of many signings Villa made after their promotion last season, and the £8.75 million he cost might prove to be the club’s most important investment.

He scored both goals when Villa beat Crystal Palace in their last home game and delivered again.

When Conor Hourihane swung over a corner in the 27th minute the ball came out to the Egyptian stationed on the edge of the area and he set himself before hammering a shot past Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

It was a nervy night at an empty Villa Park with Keinan Davis wasting a glorious chance to make it 2-0 and minutes later Arsenal’s Edward Nketiah headed against the inside of the post.

Grealish went close before halftime and while Arsenal had plenty of possession after the break they looked flat.

Davis could have settled Villa’s nerves when Grealish played him through but his left-foot shot slid wide.

That miss almost came back to bite Villa when Nketiah’s glancing header struck the inside of the post and rebounded back into the hands of Pepe Reina who kissed the ball.

“It’s a big boost, that’s for sure. We knew we had to win to catch Watford up. Now we’ve got the season in our own hands and that’s all you can ask for,” Villa manager Dean Smith said.

Villa, now in 17th place with 34 points, are ahead of Watford on goal difference going into Sunday’s final round of matches. Second-bottom side AFC Bournemouth, who next play Everton, have 31 points and also remain alive.

Aston Villa survival hopes hit by late Walcott header in Everton draw

A late equaliser from Everton substitute Theo Walcott denied Aston Villa three points in their fight to avoid relegation from the Premier League in a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Thursday.

After a cagey first half, Villa scored with the game’s first attempt on target as centre back Ezri Konsa latched on to a Conor Hourihane free kick in the 72nd minute.

Everton struggled to create goal-scoring opportunities until Andre Gomes’ cross found the diminutive, Walcott who headed home three minutes from time.nfl cheap nike jerseys

“The lads are devastated in the dressing room because we deserved more out of the game,” Villa manager Dean Smith said.

“I thought in the last eight minutes we got a bit sloppy on the ball and didn’t take as much pressure off ourselves as we needed to.”8

Smith was unimpressed by Villa’s lack of composure in the closing stages, with forward Anwar El Ghazi smashing the ball over the crossbar from close range.

“It was one that probably should’ve gone into the back of the net, but it doesn’t and unfortunately they went up the other end and score,” Smith said.

“I think Theo’s trying to head it back across goal which makes it even more disappointing.”cheap nike jerseys nfl

The result left Villa 19th in the table, three points adrift of the safety zone, having played a game more than 17th-placed Watford.

They face Arsenal at Villa Park on Tuesday before finishing the season against fellow strugglers West Ham United.

Everton extended their winless run to four league matches to stay 11th in the table, having failed to mount a challenge for European qualification spots since the league resumed last month.

Arsenal great Ray Parlour says FA Cup could salvage lost season

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour says an FA Cup title could offer some needed joy for the Gunners after a trying season in the Premier League.

Despite Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Liverpool, Arsenal find themselves 9th in the Premier League and will miss out on UEFA Champions League football next season.

Their last chance for silverware this season comes in the FA Cup, where they face Manchester City in Saturday’s semifinal match.

The Gunners have a good history in the competition having claimed a record 13 titles, and Parlour — who won four FA Cups — says the nature of the knockout tournament means his former club stand a chance.nike nfl cheap jerseys

“It’s a one-off game — 90 minutes,” he said on The John Dykes Show. “We know Man City will be going for it because Pep Guardiola has got a great record in it as well.7

“Man City in the cup — it’s going to be difficult but this is such a massive game for Arsenal and they’ve done it before.”

The Gunners have had to overcome many hurdles this season, including the dismissal of former manager Unai Emery in November after they went seven games without a victory.nfl cheap nike jerseys

Parlour says Mikel Arteta has improved the situation — although it remains to be seen if the Gunners will spend during the transfer window and whether they will have the drawing power without top-level continental football next season.

“We do need better players,” added Parlour, who won three Premier League titles with Arsenal. “We need players to come in and we know that everybody wants to play in the Champions League. If Arsenal are not there, it’s going to be a little bit more difficult.

But according to Parlour Arsenal’s appeal lies in its history, location and the chance to redeem a struggling side.

“Also, it’s an opportunity for a player to come in and really turn it around for the club,” Parlour said. “If you get two really good players in and really start building the team around certain players, then I can see them getting back into the top four.”

Ings double seals Southampton victory over struggling Watford

Watford were dealt a major blow in their bid to avoid relegation as a Danny Ings double and James Ward-Prowse’s stunning late free kick condemned them to a 3-1 defeat at home to Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

Saints started strongly and took a well-deserved lead in the 16th minute when Ings glided past the challenge of two Watford defenders before curling a low effort into the far corner.8

The striker added a second goal in the 70th minute after intercepting a wayward throw from goalkeeper Ben Foster before Jan Bednarek’s own goal handed the Hornets a lifeline.

But Ward-Prowse’s free kick in the 82nd minute sealed the victory for Southampton, who rose to 13th place with 40 points, while Watford remain in 16th with 28 points, one point ahead of third-bottom Bournemouth, who have a game in hand.cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

Solskjaer: Angel Gomes likely to leave Manchester United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he is expecting midfielder Angel Gomes to leave the club.

The United boss had been hopeful Gomes would sign a new contract but with no update on the situation and the 19-year-old’s deal due to expire on Tuesday, he now looks set to leave Old Trafford.

“I’ve got no news, nothing, so it doesn’t look like [he will stay],” Solskjaer told a news conference on Monday.

“I’ve not heard from them last night or this morning. It seems like they haven’t managed to agree so the answer is probably short and yes [he will leave].cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

United travel to Brighton on Tuesday looking to extend their unbeaten run to 15 games and put more pressure on the top four places.7

With seven games remaining, Solskjaer’s team are sixth in the table, five points behind fourth-place Chelsea.

“I think there are many teams in that battle for third and fourth — Leicester, Chelsea, us, Wolves are doing really well, ” Solskjaer said.

“Tottenham, Arsenal and Sheffield United want to put a run together and put a challenge in there. It’s exciting for fans

“The players are working really hard and want to do as well as they can.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

“For me as a team we’re trying to implement our ideas. When you go into the next game knowing you’ve won the previous game it’s a good place to be in.”

Brighton are still in relegation trouble but have been in good form since the restart with a win over Arsenal and a draw at Leicester.

United have lost on both of their last two visits to the Amex Stadium and Solskjaer is expecting a tough game even without Brighton fans in the stadium.

“They’re a good footballing side, play football and make it hard for you,” he added.

“I’ve not been down there myself and fans, of course they matter and have an impact on games and football.

“We have to deal with the situation as it is and as an away team, sometimes it helps you but then again when you’re at the bottom pressure of fans can get to you and give an extra edge.”
