first_img But Peter Crouch levelled three minutes before half-time, and five minutes after the break Stephen Ireland put the hosts ahead. Schurrle quickly equalised with another fine finish and it looked like both sides would have to settle for a point until Assaidi’s brilliant intervention earned victory. Stoke’s last win over Chelsea came in the League Cup in 1995 when Potters manager Mark Hughes was in the Blues side, while their most recent league victory was in 1975. The result ended Chelsea’s three-match winning run and saw them drop below Liverpool into third, while leaders Arsenal now have the chance to open up a seven-point gap on Sunday. Schurrle was one of two changes to the Chelsea side from Wednesday’s win over Sunderland and he was soon into the action, pulling the ball back for Ramires, who shot well over the bar from 10 yards out. The Brazilian should have done much better, but the visitors only had to wait until the 10th minute to take the lead. This time Schurrle did it all himself, picking the ball up in midfield, holding off Ryan Shawcross and Glenn Whelan before shooting across Asmir Begovic and into the bottom corner. It was Schurrle’s second Premier League goal, and Chelsea had plenty of chances to add to their lead. Juan Mata shot straight at Begovic in the 16th minute after a free-kick fell to him on the edge of the box, while the Spain international then failed to pick out Fernando Torres in the centre after Jonathan Walters had given the ball away. Ramires was the man most culpable, the midfielder having three further efforts during the first half but failing to really test Begovic. Stoke had been forced into a change in the 18th minute when Charlie Adam, their main creative force, limped off and was replaced by Ireland. The Potters were showing some decent play in midfield but their final ball was lacking and front man Crouch was isolated. They had their first chance in the 38th minute when Steven N’Zonzi found Marko Arnautovic on the left and his cross picked out Walters at the back post, but the Republic of Ireland man, who last season scored two own goals and missed a penalty in the same fixture, could only nod wide. The equaliser came from a break instigated by Geoff Cameron, who found Walters down the right. His cross was just out of the reach of a diving Ireland but Arnautovic won a corner and his delivery was turned in by Crouch. Chelsea had only themselves to blame, with Mikel leaving Crouch unmarked and Petr Cech opting to come off his line but getting nowhere near the ball. Stoke carried the momentum into the second half and stunned Chelsea by taking the lead in the 50th minute. Walters broke down the right and squared the ball for Ireland, who took one touch to control before curling a precision shot in off the far post. The Britannia roared its approval but Stoke were ahead for just three minutes, and it was Schurrle again. A Mata free-kick was half cleared by Crouch to the German on the edge of the box, who once again produced a clinical finish into the far corner. Schurrle almost completed his hat-trick in the 57th minute but although he beat Begovic again his curling shot bounced off the bar. Both teams were committing men forward, and 10 minutes later it was Stoke’s turn to go close. N’Zonzi crossed for Crouch, who set up Ireland in space eight yards out but this time he could only curl his shot high and wide. Schurrle’s hat-trick hopes were ended as Mourinho sent on Frank Lampard and Samuel Eto’o, and the latter swiftly had a sight of goal but poked his shot just wide. Marc Muniesa gave away a free-kick on the edge of the box for a foul on Demba Ba, but Begovic was safely behind Lampard’s shot, which found its way through a 10-man wall. Walters was booked for shoving John Terry in the chest and was swiftly replaced by Assaidi and his strike handed Mourinho his first ever Premier League defeat in December. Oussama Assaidi stunned Chelsea with a superb 90th-minute winner as Stoke won 3-2 to claim their first league victory over the Blues in 38 years. Press Association The on-loan Liverpool winger came on as a substitute six minutes from time and his first real contribution was to pick the ball up on the left, cut inside and unleash a ferocious shot into the top corner. Jose Mourinho’s first trip to the Britannia Stadium began well as Andre Schurrle gave Chelsea a 10th-minute lead. last_img read more

first_img That tournament has plenty of detractors, though, and May – pointing to the example of current Premier League leaders Liverpool, who have not played in Europe during this campaign – is in no doubt that United’s chances of rebuilding will be improved if they are without that commitment. Asked about the prospect of the Red Devils participating in the Europa League next season, May told Press Association Sport: “Personally, I wouldn’t take it if it were offered to me. “I think United need to concentrate next season on doing well in the Premier League. “You look at Liverpool – they could go on and win the Premier League this year, and they will only have played 43 games. They missed out on playing on Thursday nights, and I think it has benefited them. “If it gives United that extra edge just going in the three domestic competitions then I think it would be best for them to do that. “Playing in the Europa League is not the be all and end all. It is all about playing in the Champions League and returning to that has to be United’s aim next season.” Since the Premier League started in 1992, there has never been a season when United have not competed in Europe. But May, who was a Red Devils player when the club won the 1999 European Cup final, is comfortable with the idea of that being broken if it helps the club ensure it is only a one-year hiatus from the Champions League. United were eliminated from the Champions League on Wednesday and are set to miss out on a route into next term’s competition, with them heading for a Barclays Premier League finish outside of the top four. They are seventh with five games left and securing a spot in the Europa League is the only realistic-looking way they will secure continental football for 2014/15. Press Association Former Manchester United defender David May feels the club will be better off next season if they do not qualify for the Europa League. The 43-year-old, speaking in Manchester in his position as an ambassador for the StreetGames Football Pools Fives, added: “Playing Thursdays and then Sundays doesn’t give you a chance really to build any momentum in the Premier League. “In terms of missing out on Europe for one season, there will be a little bit of a financial loss with that, but I would be happy to stick to the three domestic trophies next term.” The questioning of United boss David Moyes’ suitability for the role has only increased over the course of a hugely disappointing campaign following his appointment as successor to Sir Alex Ferguson last summer. And the Red Devils, beaten six times at home in the league this term, look set for a major overhaul ahead of next season. But May does not think that should include a change of manager. Asked if he felt Moyes has to go this summer, May said: “I don’t think so. “We have had injuries and people have got a year older in the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra. “It is time to bring some young, fresh players in and I’m sure in the summer the manager will do that. “Playing away, I think United have done really well, but the games they have lost at Old Trafford have been really disappointing. “You don’t like getting beaten at all, especially on your own pitch, but when you get done 3-0 by (Manchester) City and 3-0 by Liverpool, that is tough to take. “What is even worse is losing home games against the likes of Newcastle, Everton and West Brom – games you would expect to win. “David Moyes is breaking records for all the wrong reasons. It has been a tough season at home. “But our away form has been fantastic and if things can be turned around so that Old Trafford is a fortress again, then hopefully we can start seeing improvement.” last_img read more

first_img Press Association Vidal has been strongly linked with a move away from Turin this summer with Manchester United and Real Madrid among the top clubs keen to acquire the 27-year-old’s services. “It’s difficult to speak of other teams when you are already at a top club,” Vidal said to Chilean newspaper La Cuarta. “I have won the Serie A title three times and I respect my team-mates. Juventus and Chile star Arturo Vidal insists he will only decide his future once he returns to Italy from his holidays.center_img “I have heard about the interest shown by Real Madrid and (Manchester) United in me but there is someone (Vidal’s agent) who deals with this.” Vidal moved to Juve from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011 and scored 11 goals in 32 league appearances to help the Turin giants win their third straight league title last season. Juve stated earlier this week that they have no intention of selling Vidal unless the midfielder expresses his wish to leave. Vidal, who has three years left on his contract with the Bianconeri, has not ruled out staying at Juve for the long term. “Have I completed a cycle (at Juve)? I don’t feel that way,” he said. “Perhaps I will remain at Juventus all my life. “Once I arrive to Italy I will speak to the coach and see what happens. “Now the only thing on my mind is that I have seven or eight days of holiday left and I want to go away from Chile in order to have a good rest.” The South American, who competed at the World Cup and helped his country reach the last 16 of the tournament, is expected to return to Turin for pre-season training on July 28. Juve unveiled Massimiliano Allegri as their new coach this week following the surprise decision of manager Antonio Conte to step down after three successful seasons in charge. last_img read more

first_img It came just seven months after he penned a four-and-a-half year deal at Villa and he was mercilessly taunted by the home crowd, who also hissed at him after dubbing him a snake for leaving in July. Delph has only just returned from a hamstring injury and admitted his comeback at Villa was an eye-opener. “It was great, the fans gave me great support and had my back. It was always going to be interesting coming back,” he said, after the point kept City top of the Barclays Premier League on goal difference. “Obviously we never picked up the three points but we never lost the game. We got a point and have to concentrate on the next run of games. “It’s been really difficult (being out), I had a lot of injury problems when I was younger but I seemed to have overcome them. This is the first time in about four years I have picked up a niggle. It’s been frustrating but I’m back now and back fit. I’m ready to push on now.” Delph will now link up with the England squad ahead of their friendlies with Spain and France after he initially suffered his hamstring injury in the first minute of the Three Lions’ Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland in September. His substitute appearance at Villa Park was his first league game back and he is now eyeing England duty as a chance to get fully fit before City host Liverpool when he returns. “I’m not 100 per cent, I have been coming on in the last couple of games but hopefully during the international break I’ll get a couple of games there and be firing and ready to go,” he told the club’s official site. “I always look forward to international duty, it’s something I really love. They are two big games and hopefully I can play a bit longer than I did in the last game.” Press Association The midfielder ran the Villa Park gauntlet in Sunday’s 0-0 draw as he faced his former club following his controversial summer move. Delph initially rejected the chance to join City before producing a dramatic U-turn and signing for £8million. center_img Fabian Delph believes Manchester City fans protected him after his first return to Aston Villa. last_img read more

first_imgCLEMSON, S.C. — Out of the 11 first downs Clemson earned in the second half, seven came via the ground game. Conservatively, the Tigers amped up their rushing attack in the last 30 minutes to work the clock and chip away at Syracuse’s sturdy defense. Ultimately, No. 21 Clemson (6-2, 5-1 Atlantic Coast) owned the clock in the second half and effectively put the finishing touches on its 16-6 victory over the Orange (3-5, 1-3) on Saturday night. CU running back Wayne Gallman had just 17 rushing yards at the half, but eclipsed 100 by the time the faithful of Death Valley engulfed the Memorial Stadium field after the final horn.“I thought, stopping the run, we did a good job up until the end,” SU defensive end Robert Welsh said.The Orange jogged into the locker room with a 6-3 lead, countering the Tigers’ staunch defensive effort with one of its own. Clemson had 61 yards on the ground by halftime and 96 in the air. SU had logged 52 and 66, respectively.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAt the break, SU led Clemson in time of possession 16:21 to 13:39.The defensive stalemate extended five minutes into the second half before Clemson’s offense found its groove. Gallman shot up the left side for a 21-yard pickup into SU territory and quarterback Cole Stoudt scrambled to convert a third-and-4.But SU’s defense made a goal-line stand to hold the Tigers to a game-tying field goal.Later in the third, Gallman took a carry 16 yards down to SU’s 30, leading to a Tigers field goal and a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.“They run that hurry-up offense,” SU linebacker Cam Lynch said. “Stopping them (was) a little bit harder but other than that, we fought hard.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 27, 2014 at 12:13 am Contact Phil: | @PhilDAbblast_img read more

first_imgGiwa said that she has been able to engage with the campus community more directly since working full-time in her position. “What I’m most excited about is helping the University be able to move forward with starting these conversations,” Giwa said. “I’m very excited for students to have some avenues to bring their perspective forward.” Ethics and Compliance Vice President Stacy Giwa said she will be working with the Barrett Values Centre to create a survey for the campus community to share their principles. (Photo courtesy of USC Photo Gus Ruelas) In addition to serving as vice president of the Office, Giwa is also a supporting member of the President’s Culture Commission. Interim President Wanda Austin announced the commission members last November and said it “will oversee [USC’s] efforts to improve campus culture.” According to USC News, Giwa trained as a lawyer and began her career in labor and employment litigation. One of her first tasks at USC is updating the Code of Ethics, which was last updated in 2014. Part of the redrafting process will involve a survey from the Barrett Values Centre, which helps measure the culture of workplace environments. “We will … undertake a process where we engage with [students, faculty and staff] … to open a dialogue to revisit University values,” Giwa said. “It’s been nice for me to have the additional time here at the University with the different stakeholder groups,” Giwa said. center_img Giwa stressed the importance of her office incorporating the values of University stakeholders. She said her role will provide structure for students, faculty and staff to have discussions about USC’s values and ethics. Giwa joined the office in November, but said that she began her full-time position at the beginning of January. According to Giwa, the Office has three primary responsibilities: overseeing the University for overall compliance, ensuring ethical decision-making and implementing overarching culture initiatives. About a month into her full-time position as vice president of USC’s Office of Ethics and Compliance, Stacy Giwa said she is on a long-term journey to uphold the values of the USC community. Giwa said that before the survey is sent out, USC officials will sit down with the Barrett Values Centre to form an “engagement plan” to prepare for responses from the USC Community. “The survey is just a tool to enable further discussions and engagement [about the University’s values],” Giwa said. “When we do ask people to engage in a survey, we can also commit to them that we have an engagement plan to follow up on what we hear … and get more feedback on the survey results themselves.” last_img read more

first_imgThere were two plays on Saturday that ended with a very animated Steve Ishmael in back-right corner of the far Carrier Dome end zone.The first came on the first drive of the game. The Orange had gone from its own 19 to the Pittsburgh 33 in just four plays. On fourth and one, after drawing the defense offsides, quarterback Eric Dungey lofted a pass to Ishamel who reeled it in. He got up and started celebrating on the sideline only to look at the referee in disbelief shortly after. The call was offensive pass interference and the touchdown was negated.The Orange offense didn’t bounce back from that for nearly the entire quarter. There was a stretch of four three-and-outs in five possessions. SU’s first possession went for 73 yards. The next six combined for 74. Running back Dontae Strickland only had four carries in the first half.Slow first halves have plagued Syracuse in each of the past two weeks, both losses at Louisiana State and North Carolina State. Head coach Dino Babers stressed both times that it’s something the Orange would need to correct, trying to do things differently to prevent a repeat performance.“We really changed up practice, we tried to do some different things,” Babers said. “We tried to lead with the pass, not with the run, to see if we could loosen it up and it still took us a little time to get going.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse (3-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) didn’t really correct that trend. It was sitting on three points for nearly the entire first half. But a late, 93-yard touchdown drive before the half ended gave SU its first sign of life, and it carried that into the second half in an eventual 27-24 win over Pittsburgh (2-4, 0-2).Both the Syracuse fans and players seemed lifeless in a first half that featured miserable first half performances. On one Pitt third down midway through the second quarter, the normally rowdy Syracuse sideline stood mostly motionless while a crowd that’s normally raucous on those downs struggled to get excited.Just like the last two weeks, though, things changed in the second half. Dungey started finding more running room, picking up yards himself. Ravian Pierce, who was barely involved in the first half, climbed his way up to the top of the Orange’s receptions and receiving yards list for the game. Strickland got 21 second-half carries, wearing out and gaining yardage against the Pitt defense, helping make other downs more manageable.Colin Davy | Staff Photographer“We always feel like we have it,” wide receiver Ervin Philips said. “We just feel like we’ve got to get going … we’ve got to start fast.”There was an injury timeout with 13:01 left in the fourth quarter. While trainers were on the field and play was stopped, a “Let’s Go Orange” chant broke out that was arguably the loudest the Carrier Dome had been all season. Orange players who had just been milling about beforehand started eagerly pumping up the crowd.Ishmael’s second catch in the back-right corner of the far end zone came later in that same drive. This time he was matched up Panthers cornerback Phillipie Motley. And this time, the pass interference was called was against the defense.But that didn’t matter to Ishmael. He turned his body toward the ball and got in front of Motley, catching it right outside the end zone and then falling back in for a touchdown. He high-stepped, pumped his hands and let out a few roars of delight. It was the score that would put SU up for good.“I felt like I really wanted to signal it to the ref as well,” Ishmael said. “I scored the touchdown, you can’t take away this one.”It wasn’t the most impressive performance of the season for SU. Dungey finished 33-for-49 with 365 yards and two passing touchdowns, and added 48 yards and a score on the ground. He said that the team should have made it easier for itself and put the game away sooner.Syracuse will need to rectify those mistakes if it wants to compete with defending national champion, No. 2 Clemson, next week in the Carrier Dome. The Orange knows the level it has to play at to compete with the best teams, it just needs to make sure it can reach it.“Once we got going,” Babers said, “we were a sight to see.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 7, 2017 at 4:15 pm Contact Tomer: | @tomer_langerlast_img read more
