WASHINGTON -- Even with a recovering Frank Lampard, Chelsea

Par jokergreen0220, Aujourd'hui, 8:33 (0 commentaire)
WASHINGTON -- Even with a recovering Frank Lampard, Chelsea FC looks potent heading into the English Premier League season. Henry Ellenson Jersey . Romelu Lukaku scored in the 89th minute after Lampard scored a tying goal to help Chelsea to a 2-1 victory over AS Roma in its final tuneup before its Aug. 18 opener at Hull City. Lampard, who entered at halftime and has been rehabbing an Achilles injury, struck in the 61st minute to tie it after Eric Lamelas opportunistic 21st-minute strike for Roma, which was also in the final match of a three-game North American preseason tour. "I find it hard to put a percentage on it," Lampard, the clubs all-time leading goal scorer, said of his fitness. "I feel good. Weve had a good, strong preseason now, lots of games, lots of training. . I think were ready. Well be ready next week." Eden Hazard and Demba Ba helped set up both Chelsea goals. Saturdays match capped a four-game American preseason tour for Chelsea, which won all three of its matches against Italian opposition. The Blues defeated Inter Milan and AC Milan earlier this month, both 2-0, before falling 3-1 to Real Madrid on Wednesday. "Its difficult to compare" the four opponents, said Lampard, who sat out the first two matches before playing the first half against Real Madrid. "In preseason, you cant compare. I think theyre all very good teams. Theyve got quality." Chelsea created more chances throughout Saturdays match and was rewarded in the matchs closing moments when Hazard rounded the Roma defence on the left and drove a shot into goalkeeper Morgan de Sanctis body. The rebound fell to Ba, who played a neat pass for Lukaku to finish into the net from about 6 yards. It was a deserved win, with the caveat that Chelsea used 10 substitutes and perhaps wore out Roma, which played seven starters for the full 90 minutes. Roma and United States national team midfielder Michael Bradley said fitness shouldnt be an excuse. "Were disappointed not to win, even thought it was a preseason game," said Bradley. "Its important to develop this winning mentality -- this idea that every time you step on the field you have this confidence in the team that youre going to win." After a string of Chelsea pressure earlier in the half, Lampard tied it after another swift attack that began when Hazards pass from the left found Ba. Ba played a quick touch to Lampard, who took a couple of steps and then fired a 22-yard effort inside the left post and beyond the dive of de Sanctis, sending a crowd of 25,615 at RFK Stadium that mostly wore Chelsea blue into delight. That goal tied it after Lamelas strike that came after a nightmarish mistake from Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer. With Roma pressuring the ball, Ryan Bertrand played a pass back to Schwarzer, who fumbled his trap attempt. Schwarzer chased the ball, but it smacked off the left post, past the goalkeeper and back in front of the goal, where Lamela sent it into an empty net. After Lampards goal, Roma nearly went ahead again two minutes later when Pablo Osvaldo attempted to head Francesco Tottis cross over goalkeeper Jamal Blackman, who jumped to tip the ball over for a corner kick. The Italian side missed another chance in the 78th minute, with Osvaldo this time shooting over the crossbar on an open chance from the left. Chelsea, meanwhile, was reduced to twice appealing for penalty kicks from American referee Armando Villarreal before finding a bit of late magic. Chelsea opens its English Premier League after it finished third last season, and last won the league title in the 2009-10 season. The Blues also won the Europa League last season and the UEFA Champions League the season before that. Roma, who finished sixth last year in the Serie A, Italys top league, defeated the Major League Soccer All-Stars 3-1 on July 31 and MLS club Toronto FC 4-1 on Wednesday night. The club opens its Serie A season at Livorno on Aug. 25. Roma has played 12 seasons without winning a league title, finishing runners-up six times in that stretch. Dennis Rodman Jersey . Its other five picks were all six foot or better, with three at 6-1 or above. Third-round pick Brett Lernout stands six foot four and weighs 206 pounds. Langston Galloway Jersey . “The fact that he was willing to do the deal the way we wanted it to be done showed that he wanted me to be a part of something great," Lowry said, noting that Ujiri willingness to sign off on the proposal that both Lowry and his agent presented to the GM was the final straw that convinced him to return. . Pierre last November, only to watch St. Pierre leave the UFC octagon with his welterweight title belt and a split-decision victory.Uniondale, NY ( - Kyle Okposo notched his first career hat trick, including the game-winner in the third period, and totaled four goals as the New York Islanders rallied for a 6-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Ryan Strome and Michael Grabner had the other goals, while Josh Bailey and John Tavares each posted three assists for the Islanders, who have won four straight games. Jaroslav Halak turned away 21 shots in the win. Sidney Crosby had two goals and an assist, while David Perron also scored for the Penguins, who had a two-game winning streak snapped. Marc-Andre Fleury was tagged for five goals on 34 shots. Final Score: Vancouver 3, Carolina 0 Raleigh, NC ( - Ryan Miller made 28 saves to record his fifth shutout of the season and second in as many nights as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 3-0 on Friday. It was the first time in franchise history the Canucks recorded back-to-back shutouts on the road in consecutive days. Derek Dorsett, Shawn Matthias and Alexandre Burrows all scored in the second period and Kevin Bieksa supplied two assists for the Canucks, who beat Philadelphia 4-0 on Thursday. Cam Ward allowed all three goals on 13 shots over the first 40 minutes and Anton Khudobin turned aside all four shots fired his way in the third. Vancouver has won its last four games against the Hurricanes. Final Score: NY Rangers 2, Columbus 1 Columbus, OH ( - Henrik Lundqvists 35 saves got the New York Rangers back on track with a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena. After being shut out by the Islanders and Boston over their previous two games, the Rangers received second-period goals from Marc Staal and Chris Kreider to support Lundqvists sharp effort. Derek Stepan assisted on both markers. Scott Hartnell produced Columbus lone goal and Sergei Bobrovsky finished with 24 saves in the loss, the Blue Jackets fourth straight. Final Score: Nashville 4, Washington 3 Nashville, TN ( - Barry Trotz received a warm welcome back from the Bridgestone Arena crowd in his return to Nashville. His former team didnt quite return the generosity, however. James Neal scored his second goal of the night with 1:40 remaining, capping a furious late comeback froom the Predators that produced a 4-3 triumph over Trotzs Washington Capitals. Custom Detroit Pistons Jerseys. Nashville overcame a 3-2 deficit by scoring twice in the final 4 1/2 minutes, with Mattias Ekholm netting the equalizer on a power play to help the Predators to their first five-game win streak in three years. Trotz was behind the bench for that run, as well as many others while serving as the Predators head coach for the franchises first 15 seasons of existence. That tenure came to an end when he was fired at the conclusion of the 2013-14 campaign, shortly before taking over in Washington. Seth Jones added a goal and an assist for Nashville, while Carter Hutton came up with 31 saves in his first start since the Predators announced standout goaltender Pekka Rinne would miss 3-to-5 weeks with a sprained knee. Alex Ovechkin notched a pair of goals in the loss, which halted a stretch of 10 straight games of recording at least one point for the Caps. Braden Holtby finished with 26 saves. Final Score: Winnipeg 4, Chicago 2 Chicago, IL ( - Chris Thorburn and Bryan Little scored 28 seconds apart in the third period to lead the Winnipeg Jets to a 4-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday. Andrew Ladd and Zach Bogosian each posted a goal and an assist, while Michael Hutchinson stopped 31 shots for the Jets, who have won three straight. Brandon Saad and Teuvo Teravainen each notched a marker for the Blackhawks, who have dropped two of their last three. Corey Crawford allowed three goals on 34 shots. Final Score: Anaheim 5, New Jersey 1 Anaheim, CA ( - Jakob Silfverberg scored twice as the Anaheim Ducks closed out an eight-game homestand with a 5-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Friday. Patrick Maroon and Hampus Lindholm each tallied a goal and an assist, Corey Perry also lit the lamp and Ilya Bryzgalov made 14 saves in his third start of the season for the Ducks, who went 6-2-0 over their residency. Martin Havlat scored the lone goal for the Devils, who have dropped three of their last four games. Keith Kinkaid allowed four goals on 25 shots in relief of starter Cory Schneider, who appeared to suffer an upper-body injury after stopping a Matt Beleskey shot during the first period. Schneider turned aside 14 shots over the first 20 minutes.

On the back of tipping Alex Noren to win the Scottish Open l

On the back of tipping Alex Noren to win the Scottish Open last week, Ben Coley has five selections for The 145th Open at Royal Troon. Connor McDavid Jersey ... Get a Sky Sports Pass Dont miss The Open. Watch live on NOW TV for £10.99. No contract. Royal Troon returns as host for The Open Championship, 12 years on from the shock success of unheralded American Todd Hamilton.Hamilton was close to the worlds top 50 at the time but arrived out of sorts and without any links form, yet somehow managed to overcome Ernie Els in a four-hole play-off for the Claret Jug. One thing which shouldnt have surprised anyone was the nationality of the winner, as there have now been six American wins in a row at Troon dating back over half a century. With that in mind, it might pay to side with another this week.Top of the list is Jordan Spieth, who so nearly won last years Open only to just miss out on a play-off won by friend and compatriot Zach Johnson. James Haddock takes you through all the key groupings for the first round of The Open Spieth was looking for his third straight major win at the time so arrives with a little less pressure on his shoulders one year on, especially as its Dustin Johnson and Jason Day whove taken over at the top of world golf.On what is a classical in-and-out links, one which doesnt lend much of an advantage to power, Spieths ability to manufacture a score even when hes not at his best sets him apart as the strongest candidate from the top of the market. Here are all the ways to watch The Open with Sky Sports Last time out he finished third on a long course to set himself up perfectly for this altogether more subtle challenge and its significant that this years schedule enabled him to land in Scotland last Saturday and get plenty of homework done.Pick of the European challenge comes from Martin Kaymer, who has been seventh and 12th in previous Opens and arrives in great form. Martin Kaymer has posted three top-10s in his past five starts With two majors already in the locker, there is no doubt the German has what it takes to win a Claret Jug and his links form includes wins in the KLM Open and the Dunhill Links.He played well in Scotland last week, continuing the fine form hes shown on European soil throughout the spring, and looks primed to challenge with his long game under control and the putter working nicely.Those hoping for a winner even closer to home should consider Russell Knox and Sunday qualifier Richie Ramsay, but Englands Chris Wood has even better credentials and looks good each-way value. Chris Wood claimed a two-shot win in Austria last summer Woods career has really taken off this year, with his second European Tour title coming via the flagship event at Wentworth, and hes continued to play good golf, including at the US Open where he finished inside the top 25.Having twice hit the frame in The Open when still wet behind the ears, he has every reason to be confident heading to the type of golf course on which he thrives thanks to a piercing ball-flight and great imagination. Wood played a lot of golf with Danny Willett as a youngster and has clearly taken inspiration from the exploits of his compatriot, so it would be no surprise were he to quickly follow him into the major winners circle.With previous form in the biggest and best events always a good guide - two of last years play-off trio had won majors while the other had contended for them - Im finishing off with a pair of tough-as-teak grinders whove got the job done before.First is Graeme McDowell, who rediscovered something like his best form last time out and has won in windy conditions on the PGA Tour this season. Graeme McDowell finished inside the top-10 in Inverness last week McDowell has two top-10 finishes in his last four Open starts and Troon looks an ideal fit for his game.The same goes for Padraig Harrington, who was tied for fifth behind Justin Leonard here in 1997. Padraig Harrington is a three-time major champion Harrington has been inside the top 30 in each of his last three starts including when tuning up for this at Castle Stuart, and at three-figure prices always looks value on an old-fashioned links like this one.Watch the Open throughout the week live on Sky Sports - your new home of the Open - or for £10.99 with NOW TV Also See: Ways to watch the Open First round tee times The Open latest news Golf live on Sky Sports Paul Coffey Jersey . The Padres made the moves before Fridays game at Washington. They promoted infielder Jace Peterson from Double-A San Antonio and right-hander Kevin Quackenbush from Triple-A El Paso. Ty Rattie Jersey . -- All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham and the New Orleans Saints met Tuesday for arbitration on his contract. . Amid a rain of confetti, Shabazz Napier basked in the celebration on the court after being named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four following the 60-54 win over Kentucky. BALTIMORE -- These Oakland Athletics, they wont back down. Not when confronted by an angry opponent, not when theyre dodging inside fastballs and definitely not when trailing late in the game. Pinch-hitter Stephen Vogt singled in the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning, and the Athletics got home runs from Josh Donaldson and Derek Norris in a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night. It was the sixth win in seven games for the Athletics, who own the best record in the AL (38-23) and the best road record in the majors (21-11). In the third inning, Donaldson tagged Manny Machado in the chest near third base for the third out, causing Machado to lose his balance and topple backward. Machado quickly stood up and yelled close-up at Donaldson, apparently questioning the force of the tag, and players from both sides crowded around the duo before Orioles manager Buck Showalter pulled Machado away. "I just tried to tag the guy. I was walking over there to go pick his helmet up for him, then he jumps up and starts yelling at me," Donaldson said. "I dont know what happened on his end, but Im just trying to do my job and play the game of baseball." Machado said: "Right play, he made the right play, but I just didnt agree on the tag that he made on me and I just had to get up and confront him. You get in the heat of the moment and things start flying." That appeared to be the end of it, but with two outs and nobody on in the sixth inning, Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen threw an inside pitch near Donaldsons chin. After retreating from the batters box, Donaldson smiled knowingly. But he expressed anger minutes later, when Chen hit him with another inside fastball. "I understand them pitching in. Thats fine," Donaldson said. "It was just on my hand. (Baltimores) Nellie Cruz took one on the hand just the other day, and he doesnt seem too fond of that either." In the eighth, though, the As trailed 3-2. Pinch-hitter Coco Crisp drew a walk from Darren ODay, stole second and scored on a two-out single by Yoenis Cespedes. That led to Oaklands eighth win this season when trailing after seven innings. "We dont give up untiil that last out is made," Oakland starter Tommy Milone said. Darnell Nurse Jersey. "You see if in the last few games, it seems like were always in every game, and we find ways to win." John Jaso led off the 11th with a pinch-hit double off Evan Meek (0-2). With one out, Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy botched a grounder, his fourth error in two games. Meek went to third on the play and scored when Vogt hit a liner to left. Fernando Abad (1-2) worked the 10th and Sean Doolittle got three outs for his eighth save. The Orioles missed a chance to win it in the 10th when Nick Markakis was thrown out at the plate by Moss on Adam Jones one-out single to right. Cruz was then cut down trying to steal home. "Saw it, felt it, went for it, didnt work out," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. Prior to that, Chen retired 10 straight batters. Chen gave up two runs -- both on homers -- in 6 1-3 innings. Milone allowed three runs and eight hits in six innings. Donaldson put the As up 1-0 in the first with his 17th home run, and Norris connected leading off the second. Baltimore used three straight two-out singles, the last by rookie Jonathan Schoop, to get a run back in the bottom of the second. Chris Davis tied it in the fourth with an opposite-field drive to left, and Machado homered in the fifth for a 3-2 lead. NOTES: The Orioles put RHP Miguel Gonzalez (strained right oblique) on the 15-day DL, recalled RHP Tim Berry from Double-A Bowie, purchased the contract of Meek from Triple-A Norfolk and optioned RHP Preston Guilmet to the same club. ... Kevin Gausman replaced Gonzalez as Baltimores starter vs. Oakland on Saturday. The As will call upon right-hander Sonny Gray (6-1, 2.45 ERA). ... Former Orioles closer Jim Johnson returned to Baltimore for the first time since being traded during the off-season. "A lot of memories. Its obviously different going into a different clubhouse. Its cool," Johnson said. ... Oakland has homered in 14 straight games. ... LHP Johan Santana, who hoped to make a comeback with the Orioles, tore his Achilles tendon in extended spring training and is lost for the year.

PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns and point guard Eric Bledsoe hav

PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns and point guard Eric Bledsoe have reached agreement on a five-year, $70 million contract, capping a long, sometimes-tense negotiation to keep him in the desert. Thaddeus Young Jersey . The deal Wednesday is considerably more than the four-year, $48 million the Suns initially offered but well below the five-year, $80 million-plus maximum contract Bledsoes agent, Rich Paul, sought for the restricted free agent. The sides didnt budge in the negotiations until talks finally progressed in the last few days. "All summer, I knew that I really would be most comfortable coming back to Phoenix because of the great fans, my Suns teammates and our coaches," Bledsoe said in a statement released by the team. "I am very happy it was able to work out this way." Bledsoe faced an Oct. 1 deadline to sign a $3.7 million qualifying offer to play for the Suns this season, then become an unrestricted free agent. "I learned long ago that it doesnt matter how stormy the sea is as long as the ship comes in, and today we are thrilled that the ship has come in and Eric will remain a Sun for a long time," Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said in a statement. "He will be an integral part not only of our basketball team, but our Phoenix community." The Suns see Bledsoe as a critical part of their double point-guard system. He missed much of last season after undergoing his second surgery to repair a meniscus in his right knee. When Bledsoe teamed with fellow point guard Goran Dragic last year, the Suns won two-thirds of their games. But injuries kept the duo apart, most significantly the knee surgery. While the Suns coveted Bledsoes skills -- particularly his drives to the basket and defence -- as well as his obvious upside, they balked at giving the 24-year-old guard a max contract but felt highly enough of him to give a rich deal. "We are thrilled Eric Bledsoe will be in a Phoenix Suns uniform for years to come," general manager Ryan McDonough said. "Eric is one the most exciting and dynamic two-way players in the league. He played very well for us on both ends of the floor last season and we feel he is well on his way to establishing himself as one of the elite players in the NBA." Despite Bledsoes knee injury, the Suns won a surprising 48 games and just missed the playoffs. Bledsoe was the backup to Chris Paul with the Los Angeles Clippers before the Suns acquired him and Caron Butler in a three-team trade that sent journeyman forward Jared Dudley to the Clippers and a second-round draft pick to Milwaukee. Bledsoe had knee surgery in October of 2011, then again last January. Injuries limited him to 43 games last season, 40 as a starter. He averaged 17.7 points and 5.5 assists. "Lon, Ryan and the Suns have shown confidence in me, and I am looking to take that responsibility and help our team get better from last year and position ourselves to win an NBA championship," Bledsoe said. "Its why I came back to Phoenix. Dragic, carrying a bigger load when Bledsoe was out, had a breakout season, averaging 20.3 points and 5.9 assists, shooting 50.5 per cent from the field, 41 per cent from 3-point range. The Suns added a third point guard to the mix in the off-season, signing high-scoring free-agent Isaiah Thomas. Reggie Miller Jersey . Not to be outdone, Atletico Madrid bettered its title rivals by demolishing 10-man Getafe 7-0 with Diego Costa returning from injury to score with a brilliant bicycle kick. "It was an almost perfect night," Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. Joe Young Jersey . The Wizards gave up two seldom-used players — forward Jan Vesely and point guard Eric Maynor. Vesely goes to the Nuggets, while Maynor gets shipped to the 76ers. Philadelphia receives two second-round draft picks, one from the Wizards in 2015 and one from the Nuggets in 2016. . - Jesse Shynkaruk scored a hat trick as the Moose Jaw Warriors snapped a seven-game losing streak with an 8-2 win over the Prince Albert Raiders in Western Hockey League action on Saturday.Nashville, TN ( - The Tennessee Titans have placed tight end Brett Brackett on injured reserve because of a knee injury and replaced him with tight end Matthew Mulligan. Brackett appeared in seven games for the Titans this season, starting four contests, after being promoted from the practice squad in October. Mulligan has 67 games of NFL experience over five seasons with four teams and has 16 career receptioons for 160 yards with two touchdowns. Custom Indiana Pacers Jerseys. He played in two games for Chicago earlier this season after spending the 2013 campaign with New England. He also played for St. Louis in 2012 and the New York Jets from 2009-11. The Titans, who placed quarterback Jake Locker on injured reserve Monday and added Jordan Palmer to the active roster, signed quarterback Alex Tanney to the practice squad Tuesday.
