Mourinho wants United to join the Fed Express

Paul Pogba seemed to suggest the plastic pitch was like a return to kind of areas he played on growing up as United prepared for the match without Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Valencia. "We decided not to bring Antonio Valencia - because his knee is not a knee that needs an artificial pitch at all - so we brought Luke Shaw back to ...

Patriots Acquire Josh Gordon For 5th Round Pick

The Browns made it known over the weekend that they were planning to release Gordon if they couldn't trade him. Even with Edelman, the Patriots wide receiver corps was perilously thin. In that sense, the move reminds me of when the Patriots claimed wide receiver Michael Floyd on waivers in December 2016. "I hate to make projections and expectatio...

Chelsea coach Sarri believes Eden Hazard can score 40 goals this season

Giroud is yet to find the net for Chelsea this season, but already has three assists in five Premier League games, with the Blues boasting a 100 per cent league return under new head coach Maurizio Sarri. But I think both are important for us, because we have to play 60 matches. "I talked with Eden [on Friday] and I told him that for me, he c...

Liverpool outclass Spurs to maintain 100% record

Which three players impressed you most for the Reds? Lamela scored a consolation goal with a attractive volley after he found himself unmarked inside the box to give Liverpool a scare in the dying minutes of the game. Manchester City remain firm title favourites (4/6) with the bookies, however, although Liverpool are their closest opposition...

In her first interview since one of the most colossal controversies in recent U.S. Open history, Williams insisted she never received coaching signals during the final against eventual victor Naomi Osaka .

Browns WR Josh Gordon wants to be traded to Cowboys or 49ers

But Gordon, 27, has played just 11 games since then because of numerous suspensions. He caught a game-tying, 17-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter but was mostly used as a decoy. The Browns announced they would release the troubled wide receiver on Monday after another incident which diminished their trust in him. Citing sources Clevela...

Gary Neville Defends Himself Following Jurgen Klopp Criticism

Despite Liverpool sitting top of the Premier League, Klopp said it is not possible for the five-time European Cup winners to put off their Champions League campaign, which begins on Tuesday when Paris Saint-Germain visit Anfield. It is something Klopp disagrees with. He was asked about Neville's view and responded exactly how you'd expect. Kl...

Rafa Benitez signals change in tactics for Newcastle's home game against Arsenal

The Uruguayan has been making substitute appearances, but Emery now looks as if he is ready to start the diminutive midfielder and pair him with Granit Xhaka at the base of Arsenal's midfield. Things like that can happen in every game, and that's why football is so hard. " We know that we have to win and with every game we are closer . This ti...

Boateng: What I Told Mourinho On The Phone

But the United boss will be spared the hard decision of whether to play Rashford over the next few weeks, with the 20-year-old starting a three-game ban against Watford following a red card in the Burnley match. Neville has now opened up on the situation, and has insisted that his former club would move on if the 25-year-old was sold. And as per ...

McCarthy: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to get week to get ready

Rodgers said after the game he would undergo more tests, though he planned to play against Minnesota. The Vikings' offensive line didn't give him all day to throw, but they keep Cousins upright and looking downfield often enough on Sunday to make several crucial throws.

What Serena Williams whispered to Naomi Osaka on podium

Much of the criticism of Williams has centred on how her actions had spoiled a precious moment for Osaka, who was even moved to apologise for beating the home favourite to a NY crowd angrily booing Ramos. At the post-match press-conference, Williams took aim at Ramos and suggested male players would not have been punished in the same way she was du...

Rashford developing quicker than Ronaldo did - Southgate

Rashford is again struggling for game time at Old Trafford this season, but Southgate says his performances for England this week will boost his confidence when he returns to club duty under Jose Mourinho .

Packers: Three takeaways from Week 1 victory over Bears

I was disappointed with the field goal. The Bears led 20-0 at one point and their defense dominated until the second half. Instead, he twisted reality and attempted to form a favorable narrative for a Raiders club that's been roundly dragged through the mud since parting with Mack, a second- and a conditional fifth-rounder in exchange for two fir...

U.S. Open: Novak Djokovic sets up del Potro final in NY

As his opponent limped increasingly heavily between points, Del Potro ruthlessly fired in winners, his backhand proving nearly as potent as his famously magnificent forehand. I said too my box immediately that I felt something on the knee. He is 14-2 against Nishikori, including a victory in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon .

Dolphins Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones grabbed two interceptions, the second one thwarting a deep Titans drive that could have tied the score 24-24. "I wasn't as sharp as I like to be", he said. Lewan sprawled face down on the turf, then suddenly sprang to his feet, and players exchanged words and shoves.

Rodgers returns from injury, leads Packers to 24-23 comeback win

Mack accomplished all that in the second quarter alone. He wasn't putting much weight on his left leg as he left, but walked back onto the field to start the second half. But as he showed against the Packers , it was well worth it. Based on La Canfora's report and what the Raiders have acknowledged publicly through Jon Gruden and Reggie McKenzie...
