Top four, Thierry Henry’s record & Golden Boot: What’s up for grabs ahead of Project Restart

first_imgKlopp and co. are chasing the title (Picture: Getty)The Reds are also in the frame to surpass City’s record points tally – set two seasons ago. Should Liverpool win all nine of their remaining fixtures they will end the campaign on 109 points – nine clear of City’s 100-point record. Six wins from nine would draw them exactly level. With Liverpool out of the Champions League and FA Cup, they only have the league to play for so they can make a real push to state their claim to be the greatest Premier League team of all time.Champions League spotsWith Manchester City facing a ban from European competition, fifth place could be enough to secure a Champions League spot, however, teams will be determined to clinch a top-four position to guarantee entry. Liverpool and Manchester City look set to finish in the top-two, with Leicester currently closer to City than fourth-placed Chelsea. Then, it’s very tight. Solskjaer and Lampard’s teams are in the mix for top-four (Picture: Getty)Three points separate Chelsea and Manchester United, with ninth-placed Arsenal probably the lowest-placed side with a realistic chance of catching Frank Lampard’s men. Alongside the usual suspects of United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs, Wolves and Sheffield United are also in the mix. Should Sheffield United beat Villa in their first game back, they will leapfrog United into fifth, just two points behind Chelsea.Champions League qualification could also come through the European competitions, with Manchester United and Wolves probably the most realistic bets in the Europa League. Europa League placesThe same bunch will likely be in the hunt for Europa League spots, barring inspired runs from the likes of Everton, Burnley and Crystal Palace. Sixth place will be enough to guarantee European football after City won the EFL Cup, while the FA Cup place could still yet be drafted back into the league. AdvertisementAdvertisementIf City’s ban is upheld and one of the already-qualified teams wins the FA Cup then Europa League qualification could go as low as eighth place so there’s plenty to play for on that front.RelegationThere’s equally plenty to play for at the other end of the table. There are eight points separating the bottom six, with just two points spanning 16th-19th. Should 19th-placed Aston Villa win their game in hand against Sheffield United on Wednesday, they will leapfrog West Ham, Watford and Bournemouth into 16th.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errorsRock-bottom Norwich City aren’t cut adrift yet, but they are four points behind Villa and six points from safety, while 15th-placed Brighton are only two clear of the relegation zone. Southampton and Newcastle look safe, having hit the 34 and 35-point marks respectively – with nine games still to play – so it will likely be between Norwich, Villa, Bournemouth, Watford, West Ham and Brighton to occupy the three relegation spots.Golden Boot There is also a battle to be the league’s top scorer. Leicester’s Jamie Vardy leads the way on 19 goals, with Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang just two goals behind, while Liverpool and Man City attackers Mohamed Salah and Sergio Aguero have already notched 16 league goals. Southampton’s Danny Ings has been the surprise package of the season, scoring 15, he’s one in front of Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford – who is fit again after a back injury.Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Wolves’ Raul Jimenez (all 13 goals) are rank outsiders to top the scoring charts.AdvertisementThierry Henry’s assist recordA less-celebrated battle for supremacy takes place for those at the top of the assists chart. Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne is four clear of Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold (who is four ahead of third-placed Riyad Mahrez) and looks likely to be crowned the league’s assist king – but he also has a long-standing record within his sights.

No ball has been kicked in English football’s top flight since Monday 9 March, when Leicester City hammered Aston Villa 4-0, before the coronavirus pandemic forced the season to be paused. Relegation-threatened Villa will also be the first team back in action this Wednesday, when they face Champions League hopefuls Sheffield United – a match that could have plenty of implications at both ends of the table. With nine full gameweeks to go, there’s an awful lot left to play for in Project Restart – here’s a reminder of what’s still up for grabs. AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTTitle and points recordYes, Liverpool could still technically miss out on a first Premier League title – but it seems virtually impossible. Jurgen Klopp’s men have a commanding 25-point lead over nearest rivals, and defending champions, Manchester City and it would take a phenomenal meltdown for them to fail to lift the trophy come the end of the season.Liverpool need just two wins to secure the title and could possibly do it in their first game back – against bitter local rivals Everton – should Pep Guardiola’s City lose to Arsenal on Wednesday night.

The pair have exchanged a bit of banter about the record and De Bruyne seems incredibly motivated to surpass the French World Cup winner.Golden GloveThis year’s Golden Glove – the award handed to the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets – is a very tight affair. Burnley’s Nick Pope leads the way after 11 shutouts so far, but Dean Henderson will draw level with him if Sheffield United keep Aston Villa at bay on Wednesday. Advertisementlast_img read more

Mike Tyson still capable of knocking out any heavyweight – De La Hoya

first_imgBy Charles BrunMIKE Tyson is still capable of knocking out any heavyweight in the division at age 53, according to ‘Golden Boy’ Oscar De La Hoya. After watching a clip of the former heavyweight champion Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs) working out on the mitts, Dela Hoya predicted that he’d KO anyone in the division if he trains for 12 rounds.The video clip, by the way, went viral and is being talked abount by the entire boxing world. The speed, punching power, and the technique that Tyson showed during the brief clip went unrivaled by any of the current top heavyweights in boxing.Jeff Fenech, the old trainer for Mike Tyson, believes that he would knockout former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in the first round if he worked hard and went through six weeks of training camp.Further, many people want to see Tyson make a comeback for at least one fight against Wilder. The fans believe that Tyson will knock Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) out in the first two rounds.“I’m sure that if he trains for 12 rounds, right now, he’ll knock out any heavyweight,” said Dela Hoya about Mike Tyson to The Sun.It would be interesting to see how Tyson would do against one of the best heavyweights in the division if he went through a full training camp. Of course, it could prove challenging to get one of the top guys like Wilder, Fury, or Joshua to agree to take on the 53-year-old Tyson.There would be a tremendous backlash for one of them if they were to lose to the former heavyweight champion. It would be a lose-lose situation for any of those current top heavyweights to take on Tyson at this point because they won’t gain anything in facing him other than money.If they beat Tyson, then boxing fans will downplay their victory by saying, ‘You beat an old man.’ If they lose to Tyson, then it’s career over. The fans would never let Fury, Wilder, or Joshua forget that they lost to the 53-year-old Tyson.Unfortunately for Tyson, he’s in the same position ‘Big’ George Foreman was in when he launched a comeback in the late 1980s at the age of 40-years-old.

‘Matagigantes’ Mirandés – AS.com

first_imgCalleja introduced a change in the break. He entered Peña through an unfortunate Chakla, placing Gaspar as central. The Castellón sought the tie since the resumption with their best weapon. Ontiveros left for Gonzalez’s speed, but Chukwueze shot at the hands of Lemons. The warning came true shortly after. Odei committed an innocent penalty that Cazorla did not miss to set the match (2-2). It was quickly fixed by the Basque center that turned the stadium upside down when it finished off at the bottom of the net a foul thrown by Merquelanz (3-2). The visiting coach pulled the international Paco Alcácer to try to solve the ballot and that Villarreal missed the semifinals. The set of Iraola was not satisfied and continued to seek the rival goal. Antonio Sánchez was able to sentence the tie in a manual against Peña. The Balearic half fired wide.The referee forgave the second card to Iborra when Guridi commanded the exit. The effort of the reds was titanic before a block that found no gaps in the rear. Anduva enjoyed and like his players believed in the pass that was consumed in the addition. Merquelanz gave Antonio Sanchez so much that he put the finishing touch to another dream tie that puts Mirandés for the second time in its history in the semifinals. The reds jumped without complexes to the grass. From the start they wanted to take the initiative to a more refrained Castellón cadre. Merquelanz had the first occasion. The irundarra end received Antonio’s measured pass and, after breaking Anguissa, finished off by centimeters. So much was the pitcher to the source that in the end it broke. Matheus anticipated Mario Gaspar to take the head ball and enter the area. Chakla got in the way, but the Brazilian cut the Moroccan center to beat Andrés Fernández with a tight shot and turn Anduva upside down (1-0).The goal knocked out Villarreal who suffered from the constant local attacks. The state of grace of Iraola’s men was that the side Gonzalez tried his luck with a distant throw that almost surprised the yellow goal. The possible 2-0 went to the draw in the blink of an eye. Ontiveros masterfully executed a foul that completely deceived Limones (1-1). Far from falling apart, the Mirandés followed his own. Iborra played the direct red by stopping Rey’s advance, but the referee only showed the yellow against the protests of the respectable. In the addition of the first act, De Burgos Bengoetxea reviewed an action in the VAR to finally point out a penalty by the defender Quintillà. Merquelanz’s pulse did not tremble to put the small fish in the lead again (2-1).

His team had done it again. The Mirandés qualified for the semifinals of a competition that honors no one. Villarreal was charged, who barely had any chances despite scoring two goals in a stationary ball (4-2). The fans and a whole city are still dreaming and in a big way with shouts of ‘A for the Cup, oe, oe’.last_img read more
