Now? Jose Mourinho's side are nowhere near. "It was seven massive games and I'm really happy with what the boys made out of it, now we have to hope they come back [from the upcoming global break] healthy and then we go to Huddersfield". The title race isn't a two horse race. Clearly, from the way they set up, neither of them wanted to be beaten, rather than both going looking for the win.
I was dreaming about this club. Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been warned the Blues could have problems if Eden Hazard gets injured this season. That included an assist to Hazard , with the Belgian netting his seventh Premier League goal of the season. Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go.
Jurgen Klopp said he is satisfied with Liverpool's points total after a hard run and described the resumption of the UEFA Nations League as "the most senseless competition" in football.

This is the most points Alabama has allowed in the first half. TV networks will have to make sure their on-field cameras are ready from the second Alabama steps onto the field, because it can score at any moment. "We need to coach them better", Saban said. For a former rival like Tebow, who ended a Crimson Tide national title dream in the SEC Championship Game 2008 and then failed to repeat the feat in 2009, that's a different story.
The Tottenham striker captained England to their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years in Russian Federation this summer. Real Madrid and Wales forward Gareth Bale is among the nominees for this year's men's Ballon d'Or award.

A total of 30 players will make up the shortlist for the award, which was won by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017.
Juan Mata and Anthony Martial also scored in the second half for United, who came back from a two-goal deficit to end a run of four games without a win in all competitions - form that has manager Jose Mourinho under fire . "I'm amazed by that", Mourinho added. The many concerns of those fans who fill Old Trafford every week will not evaporate during the week-long global break, but at least they went home smiling after a super comeback.
Hamilton won in Japan a year ago, while Vettel failed to finish, with Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo claiming second and third. I think it's a long race.

Page said the 26-year-old would be sidelined for "several months", ruling him out of the All Blacks' end-of-season tour, which includes Tests against Australia , Japan , England , Ireland and Italy .

The Red Sox will hand the ball to Nathan Eovaldi in Game 3 of the American League Division Series on Monday night. "Obviously, we're all in with this, so never know what can happen in Game 3", Cora said. So who wins every playoff game? "But a homer is a homer". "I guess he told you guys he slipped or something like that". Isn't Boston vs. NY technically the World Series? Price was yanked off the mound after logging just 1 2/3 innings; per Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston , it ...
Taking on a big challenge. Canelo Alvarez may be without a network, but the unified middleweight champion is not without an opponent, as he will face WBA super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding on December 15th. So while Alvarez plans to fight again this year, it is unclear whether he will do the fight with his longtime broadcast partner HBO, which has had him under contract since 2015.
It's part of football - sometimes you score, sometimes you miss. Gundogan is a doubt for the fixture after picking up a hamstring injury during Man City's win over Hoffenheim in the UEFA Champions League. Liverpool was never able to build up the sort of momentum it had for spells all three of the games it won against City last season. The Citizens remain in pole position, but they are in a three-way tie with the Reds and Chelsea at the Premier League summit going into the global break.
Other results: Watford 0 Bournemouth 4; Crystal Palace 0 Wolverhampton 1; Burnley 1 Huddersfield 1; Leicester 1 Everton 2.

That puts Vettel 67 points behind Hamilton and means the Briton would win the title at the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, in two weeks' time if Mercedes finish one-two for the third successive race.

For the brilliance of Hamilton across the year and the increasingly frequent mistakes made by Vettel, the tactical brains outside of the cars have a couple of times changed the shape of the race.

The Green Bay Packers kicker, who had never missed three field goals in a game despite spending 12 seasons at Lambeau Field, missed four and an extra point in a 31-23 loss to the Detroit Lions.

On Thursday, Ronaldo was left out of Portugal's squad for their forthcoming matches against Poland and Scotland, although his national side offered a statement in support.

City fans may ask why Mahrez , who has now missed five of his last eight top-flight penalties, took the spot kick but while the visitors had the best chances a draw was not an unfitting result for a much-anticipated game that failed to truly sparkle.
Game, set, match and championship point for Hamilton? The 29-year-old denied he was now resigned to playing a supporting role to Hamilton until the championship was decided, however. "But it has happened, it is done and dusted".

Aaron Ramsey scored a goal of the season contender as Arsenal thrashed Fulham to record a ninth straight win for the first time since April 2015.

First, though, McGregor will have to get past the toughest test of his career, Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena against Nurmagomedov.

Roston Chase (53) and Keemo Paul (47) counter-attacked briefly but India took the final four wickets in the first session, with Ravichandran Ashwin claiming 4-37, as Kohli enforced the follow on.

The 18-year-old has caught the eye for the Gunners during their European campaign so far, featuring in both Europa League wins for Emery's side, while scoring his first professional goal in the recent win against Qarabag.

He was not very good. In four starts against the Red Sox this season, he's posted a 7.58 ERA with 16 earned runs and six home runs allowed, which isn't reassuring. By the time Giancarlo Stanton capped the mauling with monstrous drive in his postseason debut, New York Yankees fans already were looking ahead. Over that same span, the Yankees have won just one title, in 2009.
The Premier League's top two sides face off this weekend as leaders Manchester City travel to Liverpool in what is expected to be a high-intensity match. While City are not short of attacking talent, the repertoire of skill and technique available against Liverpool would be bolstered significantly if De Bruyne was passed fit to play.
He said: "It's hard because a lot of players are involved in Europe and it will not be easy for us to bring them here". Goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, and Alexis Sanchez got Manchester United the much-needed three points, and sent the Old Trafford faithful into a state of ecstatic frenzy.

Muto went close to a third for Newcastle with a header which De Gea did well to keep out with a reflex save. United's attack did the defence no favours in the 50th minute, with Pogba denied by Newcastle Martin Dubravka from 25 yards despite a deflection and Matic missing the second chance, on an open net, by sending his attempt over the crossbar.
It left White holding court by himself for a period, but he insisted he wasn't bothered - and acknowledged Nurmagomedov's "counter" to McGregor's mind games. "I have schedule. I have to make weight".

I didn't think it was violent conduct, I thought it was cynical. "Mike Dean doesn't need influencing, he's a top referee", said Warnock. After the Barcelona defeat, it was so tough and hard and you know that you're going to play a team that is so fresh and so aggressive.
When asked if De Bruyne will be fit to face the Reds in the Premier League , Guardiola was concise in his reply : "We will see on Saturday". Liverpool ride into Anfield on the memories of last season's successes against City, and THEY might help to banish the blues of an uncharacteristically limp display against Napoli.
Undoubtedly, that is a trend that needs to stop. With rumours swirling that he is to be sacked irrespective of Manchester United's result against Newcastle United this weekend, Jose Mourinho made the curious decision to arrive at Old Trafford especially early ahead of today's game.
