All of which makes subsequent events even more freaky. Making only his third appearance of the season, Arsenal's £19.2m summer signing from Bayer Leverkusen made a string of key saves against Troy Deeney and Andre Gray before the Gunners finally wrapped up the game.
Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas left Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals with what looked like a serious leg injury, and he may have let his team know how he feels on his way off the field. Depends on who you ask. The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Thomas suffered a clean, lower leg break but no ligament damage and no displacement.
He has late-life to his fastball". Bryce Harper didn't quite get there, but the slugger is today playing in his 159th game of the season, a new career high. While Los Angeles did their part in a rout of the Giants, the Rockies held suit against the Washington Nationals . All four teams are already assured playoff spots, either as a division champ or wild card.
Their 17.5-10.5 winning margin was the highest by either side since Europe won at The K Club in 2006, and the fourth highest overall since the switch to a European side in 1979. An extremely noisy, partisan crowd is one problem to overcome. "This golf course is intimidating". "I played incredible golf today". And we were involved and we thought that the teams came out of our four-man squad, [Reed, Spieth, Woods and Thomas].
ET. The loser of the tiebreaker game hosts the loser of the NL West tiebreaker in the Wild Card contest. The Brewers won their seventh in a row, and Chicago beat St. "You look at especially the last couple of months where we've had some rain, and all that the '30-in-30′ days and stuff like that. For us to be where we're at right now, we definitely like where we're at".
Jose Mourinho's men were visiting the London Stadium after last weekend's draw with Wolverhampton and the midweek League Cup exit against Derby , not to mention the civil unrest between the United manager and Paul Pogba , and this was yet another low.
Don't expect it to be the last time these two players face each other in a Ryder Cup match. En route to Europe's 17 ½-10 ½ dismantling of the U.S. "For Jon to go out in his first Ryder Cup singles and beat Tiger Woods , you know, that's a pretty cool thing that you'll have for the rest of your life", said Bjorn, "and that's something that he will carry in his career, knowing that on the biggest stage, against the best player that's ever played, I can stand up and do great things".
Andy Murray has made a decision to sit out next week's China Open due to a slight ankle injury, ending his season. The one-way traffic continued into the second set as Murray raced 2-0 ahead, continuing to do considerable damage with his first serve.
After three goals in three games for Castilla, however, it appears Lopetegui has been convinced of Vinicius' quality, turning to the youngster towards the end of a tense 0-0 draw against Madrid's city rivals. Julen Lopetegui 's side also began the second half brighter despite being forced to take off Bale at the break, and they had a chance to open the scoring less than two minutes after the restart when the ball broke kindly for Casemiro , who blazed his effort well over from the edge ...
Bell hasn't been traded yet, so we don't know his value. Furthermore, the Steelers would receive a future compensatory third-round pick if they let Bell walk away as a free agent, so their asking price is unlikely to come down much. While any team that acquired Bell could not sign him to a contract extension until after the season, he could engage in at least some degree of contract talks with his new team, according to National Football League and NFLPA sources, without the sides entering ...
Louis Cardinals; and Washington Nationals. The Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs are both going to the postseason, but with matching 94-67 records entering Sunday's final day of the regular season the NL Central title has not been settled.
With the first tee time of the three-day event set for 2:10 am ET on Friday "morning", it might be hard to picture much of a desire to view live golf in America but, well, the Ryder Cup is different. It was a fitting end for someone who was both lousy all week and who has the most losses in Ryder Cup history. Rahm was a part of the first group in Friday's morning fourballs session, but he entered Sunday's play as one of just two Europeans without a point after also dropping a match on ...
Xander Bogaerts hit his 23rd home run of the season in the second as the Sox held a 7-0 lead going into the third. Additionally, Torres' home run came from the ninth spot in the order which as a result gave the Yankees at least 20 home runs from every spot in the batting order, a new record.
He was also asked about Paul Pogba , who started and was a peripheral figure in the loss after losing his vice captaincy and being left out of the squad in a home League Cup loss to Derby County. He also complained about a foul in the build up to West Ham's third, which was scored by Marco Arnautovic. When asked by BT Sport whether he had a message for Mourinho, the Austria global replied: "No, nothing to say".
But we had a very special week here. Just as Hazeltine's generous landing areas accommodated the Americans' bomb-and-gouge style in 2016, this was a track that perfectly highlighted the Europeans' strength: Six of their players ranked inside the top 82 in driving accuracy on the PGA Tour, while a whopping eight Americans landed in the bottom 82.
Sergio Garcia was overcome with emotion. And the man whose stellar play over three days helped trigger the celebration remained the calm at the heart of the mayhem. "Would have been killed had he not picked either, but he's played with them in Ryder Cups ". He wasn't alone. Tiger Woods went 0-4, the first time in his eight Ryder Cups that he failed to contribute a single point.
But, he said, "You never really know how it's going to go from week to week". Fitzpatrick threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans , cutting the lead to 30-27. He was disappointing in the first half Monday, by his own account, but after throwing three interceptions and helping Pittsburgh take a 30-10 halftime lead, Fitzpatrick settled down and almost led the Bucs to a comeback.
If anything the match against the Hammers was the culmination of everything that's gone wrong for United so far this campaign. Former England and United captain Ferdinand added that it was difficult to say whether the club were approaching the "end game", in terms of either Mourinho's tenure or the future of under-performing players, but said the club's hierarchy now had to make hard decisions.
And he could have easily played with Woods or Mickelson, both of whom long ago figured to play no a few times per day but are sitting here at a combined 0-4. The Italian became the first European player to finish with a 5-0 record, having won four matches alongside Tommy Fleetwood . Furyk is counting on the 48-year-old Mickelson to give the Americans a boost at the back end of the singles draw.
The Americans have never made up that much ground away from home, though they were the first to win after trailing 10-6 at Brookline in 1999, when they frontloaded the Sunday lineup with their biggest stars. "We've got some work to do tomorrow", said Woods. "[I'm] just pretty pissed off [with] the fact that I lost three matches and didn't feel like I played poorly, " Woods said.
His effort was parried away but Dybala acrobatically volleyed it in for his first goal of the season. The Bianconeri took the lead in somewhat fortuitous circumstances when a ball over the top came off Dybala's back and fell to Matuidi.
Manchester City´s Sergio Aguero celebrates scoring their second goal. The sideshow split between player and manager has hogged the headlines of late, but the issues facing Mourinho clearly don't start and end with the French midfielder, and on the evidence of the 3-1 loss at the London Stadium very few of the United squad are playing for their boss right now.
But a gadget play to backup quarterback Tommy Stevens lost 13 yards on the next snap, and so the Nittany Lions (4-1, 2-1 Big Ten) settled for a 34-yard Jake Pinegar field goal. The Nittany Lions squandered a 12-point, fourth-quarter lead to suffer their first loss of the season. Ohio State players in a stadium underbelly had the glow of those who escape.
The 24-year-old, a £52 million signing from Monaco last July, is sidelined with a metatarsal injury and unavailable for Saturday's Premier League clash with Brighton at the Etihad. Meanwhile, Brighton sits in the crowded bottom half of the standings and has just one win on the season, earning just two points over its last four matches.
In the first half, the Blues were all over the Reds and used the wings well to create chances all around. "They need the guy up front whether it's [Olivier] Giroud or [Alvaro] Morata - for me both of them are not really on form - to nick that goal to give the other guys that momentum to get into the game so it doesn't all depend on Hazard ".
The early second-half touchdown gave IL a stunning 28-24 lead on the No. 10 Nittany Lions. The Buckeyes outblocked Russ Rose's squad 24-18 in front of a crowd of more than 3,000. "We felt like we were going to win the game", Corbin said. IL led 24-21 after bridging the first and second halves with a 17-0 run, but Penn State responded with six touchdowns over the final quarter and a half to pull away.
Emery indicated that he has no plans of dropping the Wales worldwide, though, and said he isn't anxious that his performances could suffer. "But still, in the first half we had a good chance through Alexandre Lacazette, and I said to him the most important thing is to be creating these chances, and then we will score goals ".
However, Arsenal scored against the run of play when Cathcart side-footed the ball into his own goal while preventing a shot from Lacazette in the 81st minute. But Emery also appeared to suggest he understood every player had to maximise his earning potential during what is a short career. Arsenal lost against the Hornets at Vicarage Road last season, which prompted striker Troy Deeney to publicly criticise Arsene Wenger's side after the game, suggesting they lacked "cojones".
To capitalize on what it hopes will be a broader audience for the sport thanks to the Ryder Cup , the French federation has been building small urban courses, where players can quickly get through a few holes for a few euros. Plus, there's this, from Phil Mickelson on Woods at the Tour Championship: "This is the best I think I've ever seen him swing the club, even going back to 2000, when I thought he was at his best".
And just glad that, you know, we've done our job for the team", said Englishman Fleetwood. It got particularly ugly on the third hole, a 558-yard par-5, when Mickelson tried to play conservatively off the tee with an iron - and yanked his shot into the water anyway.
