I got a feeling that they wouldn't score and it would be our year. "I thought we played really well in the second half and deserved at least a goal", said Elmohamady.

The Villa Park outfit stepped up in the second half when Jack Grealish had their best chance of the game just moments after the restart and could not head the ball cleanly enough.
I'm sorry for everyone - from the team, from the whole club - that the mistakes cost dearly. Liverpool can not compete for a title with the 24-year-old in goal and so they are reportedly looking at AS Roma's goalkeeper Alisson Becker for a "record free".
Golden State also trailed by 17 at the end of the first quarter and by 10 at the half in Game 6 before rallying for a 115-86 win . The Warriors will face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the fourth consecutive time in the NBA Finals which begin on Friday.

The street circuit is notoriously hard to overtake at and the Australian benefited greatly from this fact, the victory all but confirmed with three laps remaining when a hasty virtual safety auto restart allowed him to pull away. Hamilton stopped as early as lap 12 and had to manage a set of ultrasofts for the remaining 66 laps. In that moment Ricciardo believed his race was over, but a series of setting changes helped keep the power unit operational - albeit roughly 160bhp down on power.
Turner Broadcasting System's TNT hold the exclusive rights to broadcast the Warriors vs. Rockets Game 7 showdown nationally.

Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said "anything is possible" but that Salah is doubtful for the World Cup. "Despite the odds, I am sure I will be in Russian Federation so that you are all proud".

The Reds were hoping to win their sixth Champions League crown while Los Blancos were aiming to make history by winning the club competition for a third consecutive year - and 13th time overall.
The 59-year-old left Napoli earlier in the month - Carlo Ancelotti was named his successor last week - and Sarri is already reportedly preparing for his move to west London.

All in all, this was this team's first postseason run together, and having the NBA's best player on the ropes no matter his supporting cast is an impressive feat.

After a somewhat disappointing season, Premier League giants Chelsea are ready to replace their current coach Antonio Conte and bring in Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri to challenge for the League title next season.

The record was previously held by the Los Angeles Lakers, who, coincidentally, outscored the Warriors by 37 points (73-36) in Game 3 of the 1973 Western Conference Finals . "All our doctors are with us", D'Antoni said, explaining why Paul traveled for Game 6 after he had been ruled out.

Scans revealed that the 25-year-old, who will carry Egypt's hopes at next month's World Cup in Russian Federation, will need three weeks of treatment to recover from his shoulder injury and will be available for the World Cup.

Karius' attempted throw deflected into the net off Karim Benzema to break the deadlock and he was also at fault for Gareth Bale's goal which made it 3-1, as he fumbled a seemingly straightforward shot into his own goal.

Mobility is absolutely key for Arsenal as Granit Xhaka, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey all lack that thrust out of possession and the ability to regularly break up play, push forward and join attacks. " Arsenal are working on a deal to sign Switzerland right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer when the 34-year-old's Juventus contract expires this summer", wrote Ornstein.
For either Aston Villa or Fulham , a place in the Premier League and the riches that come along with it await. Steve Bruce , ashen-faced afterwards and clearly ready for a break after a traumatic six months, will nearly certainly have to rebuild in their third and final year of parachute payments.
Thompson said the Warriors would be ready. "I think Pat's comfortable with it". "I probably sounded more vocal than I am". It was a sense of deja vu for Thompson and the Dubs as it's not the first time he's produced heroics in a Game 6 where they were facing elimination.
Gareth Bale has had a hard season at Real Madrid , regularly left out by Zinedine Zidane he has struggled for game time and there has been plenty of speculation linking him with a move away. I feel sorry for my team. "Who's disappointed? Perhaps they need to change the name of the Champions League to the CR7 Champions League . These goals cost us the title basically".
But to his credit, Harden had a hand in two big defensive stops down the stretch that enabled the Rockets to hold on to the win for a 3-2 lead going to Game Six on Sunday. They had been in one close playoff game since Kevin Durant arrived - dating back to Game 1 of the 2017 Western Conference Finals vs the Spurs. The Warriors simply never slipped into a rhythm and were far less reliant on their trademark movement and crisp passing game.
If this postseason hasn't proven it enough, winning a playoff game on the road in TD Garden is tough. "Tremendous. I thought the second was wasn't quite as contested maybe as the first one". Love, who has a history with concussions, raised his left arm as if to signal he needed help. Because of this, James will be asked to carry the load once again for the Cavaliers.
It is a team game but when you are a substitute, it is a game of more than 11 players. "It's just an awesome impact and an incredible goal but, like I say, it's what he's capable of".

Ricciardo's pole was his second in three years in the principality, the second of his career and also Red Bull's second of the V6 turbo hybrid era that started in 2014.

The German keeper had earlier handed Real a 51st minute lead when he threw the ball straight at striker Karim Benzema and the ball rolled into the unguarded net off the Frenchman's leg.
