EPL: Saints entertain Spurs

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton EPL: Saints tackle Mourinho’s Spurs Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Southampton vs. Tottenham Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium kick off: 4PMTottenham Hotspur begin the new decade with a trip to St Mary’s as Southampton welcome Spurs to the south coast this afternoon. Jose Mourinho’s side sit sixth in the table and five points off the Champions League spots ahead of their visit to a resurgent Southampton, who eased their relegation concerns during a much-improved December. A lot has changed since these two sides last met in September, when Spurs ground out a 2-1 win with 10 men in what proved to be the final league victory of Mauricio Pochettino’s reign. Most would have had Ralph Hasenhuttl as the more likely man to be out of a job before Pochettino at that stage, but the Austrian remains in charge of the Saints whereas Tottenham are well into the Mourinho era now. Mourinho talked up the kind of character which was on show from Spurs in the reverse fixture following Saturday’s year-ending 2-2 draw at Norwich City, which saw them come from behind twice after shooting themselves in the foot with defensive errors. In the end Tottenham were perhaps fortunate to come away with a point after a contentious VAR offside call which disallowed Teemu Pukki’s goal, but the result saw them slip five points adrift of Chelsea in the final Champions League spot. Defensive lapses have been an unexpected yet defining feature of Mourinho’s time in charge so far, with Spurs having kept just one clean sheet in 10 matches across all competitions, which in turn has prevented them from getting any real momentum going with a good run of wins. That is particularly true away from home, where Tottenham have won just two of their 10 games so far this season, although both of those victories have come in four games under Mourinho whereas they were winless in their last 12 league outings on the road with Pochettino at the helm. Spurs will be glad to see the back of 2019 despite the obvious highlight of reaching a first Champions League final, and the clearest indication of how far they fell throughout the year is that they were 15 points better off last New Year’s Day. Southampton, meanwhile, are seven points better off this time around than they were at the same stage of last season, thanks largely to a much-needed upturn in form towards the end of 2019. The Saints have won four of their last six outings and picked up 13 points in that time, which is more than they had amassed in their previous 18 league games stretching back to the tail end of last season. Should they avoid defeat then it would be their longest unbeaten streak in the league since February while also potentially increasing their four-point cushion over the relegation zone, although there are still plenty of improvements to make. The most obvious one is their home form; only West Ham have picked up fewer points in front of their own fans, with Southampton having accrued six fewer at St Mary’s than they have away, while they have also conceded more goals than any other team on home turf. The latter stat is admittedly skewed by the aberration of a 9-0 home drubbing at the hands of Leicester City, but they will be coming up against one of the division’s best strikers in this match and so it would take an unlikely improvement for them to register a first league clean sheet at St Mary’s since February – a wait which currently stands at 15 games. Southampton possible XI: McCarthy, Cedric, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Redmond, Ings, Adams. Tottenham possible XI: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Ndombele, Sissoko, Lucas, Alli, Eriksen, Kane.Tags: Jose MourinhoMauricio PochettinoSouthamptonTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more

DTH van der Merwe’s debut double helps Scarlets to victory

first_img As well as debutant Van der Merwe, Aled Davies, Aled Thomas and Steven Shingler came into the Scarlets’ back division while hooker Kirby Myhill took over from the injured Emyr Phillips from the 20-8 win at Zebre. Leinster coach Leo Cullen made five changes from the side which defeated the Newport Gwent Dragons including a first start for fly-half Ross Byrne. Scarlets adopted an expansive approach and led 15-0 after largely dominating the first half. It was all Scarlets early on as a fourth-minute penalty from Shingler was followed five minutes later by a try for flanker Davies, who was put over down the left by captain John Barclay. Leinster pounced on a few errors from the home side to create some of their own pressure but Fergus McFadden was short with a 15th-minute penalty and then wing Hadleigh Parkes produced a fine tackle to stop Nacewa going in at the left corner. It was more Leinster pressure which actually produced a runaway try, with Van der Merwe picking off possession in his own 22 and running in unopposed from 75 metres. Shingler converted to give the home side a 15-0 advantage. Matters did not get much better for the Irishmen after the interval, with centre Noel Reid handed a yellow card in the 43rd minute for a cynical ruck offence. And against 14 men Scarlets scored their third try, Van der Merwe’s second, to see them lead 22-0 on 53 minutes. Press Association Shingler kicked a penalty on the hour when the Scarlets might have thought of instead going for the bonus-point try, and the chance of that ebbed away as Leinster ended the match much the better. First Nacewa went over after some good inter-passing in the backline, a try converted by McFadden. That seemed to instill some self-belief in the visitors though McFadden butchered a chance down the right, dropping the ball with the line at his mercy. But Leinster did grab a second a minute from time when Tracy went over from short range, a try converted by McFadden. Van der Merwe, who scored a try in each of Canada’s four World Cup pool games, celebrated a score in each half after flanker James Davies opened the try scoring, but the Scarlets would have been disappointed not to have got a bonus point. For Leinster the try scorers in the second half were full-back Isa Nacewa and replacement James Tracy. Canada’s World Cup star DTH van der Merwe crossed twice as Guinness Pro12 leaders Scarlets stretched their unbeaten start to four games with a 25-14 victory over Leinster at Parc y Scarlets.last_img read more

Future Still with QPR?

first_imgExplaining why Osayi-Samuel’s contract was extended, QPR’s Director of Football Les Ferdinand said to the club’s official website: “Exercising the option to extend the deals of Bright is recognition of how well they have done for us over the past three years.“He has worked incredibly hard to become important members of Mark Warburton’s squad, and as such is valuable assets to QPR.“When you are signing young players the contracts need to be long enough to protect the club while not too long that they can potentially take away their incentive to progress.“The extra one-year option which we have triggered gives us that ability to do both. We will be continuing discussions with Bright as we look to extend the deals further.”The 22-year-old Osayi-Samuel joined Queens Park Rangers in August 2017 from Blackpool.Osayi-Samuel was watched over by a number of Premier League clubs during the winter transfer window, with Southampton in the forefront to sign the exciting winger.The Queens Park Rangers winger has been in exciting form this season, putting in several strong performances. And a number of sides have taken notice of his strong form.He attracted genuine interest from Manchester United during his time with Blackpool, before Queens Park Rangers convinced him to join the club in September 2017.When asked about the likelihood of signing a longer contract with QPR, Osayi-Samuel said: “I don’t know. Obviously I would love to stay but I’m just focused on playing games. I let the contracts and stuff like that be solved with my agent and the club. I just want to keep playing and see what happens.”“I think one of the reasons is I’m wearing studs now,” he added.“Ever since I’ve been wearing studs I’ve been playing well.“But I also have to praise the gaffer after training sessions, he pulls me for 10-20 minutes to improve on my weaknesses when I get into dangerous areas, picking out players and I feel like now it’s paying off.“For me, I believe that I get into dangerous areas probably every game.“But the main thing is that end product to find someone or to create and I feel like now the manager knows that as well.“When I get into dangerous areas or I’m on the byline there’s that composure.“I feel like before when I used to get there I didn’t really have that composure, I was rushing things and now I feel more calm and relaxed.“I think that also comes with me playing regularly and I feel like those are the reasons I’m doing well.”Meanwhile, Osayi-Samuel believes he has added more composure to his game after netting his fifth league goal of the season in the 4-2 win over Stoke City.The R’s came back from two goals down to end their five-game winless game run, with Osayi-Samuel scoring from a tight angle for his side’s third of the game.And the winger is happy to see his hard work paying off as the R’s got back to winning ways.“I know I’m a player that creates chances so I feel like in previous games or earlier in the season when I get to those positions I get a bit too agitated so I feel like I needed more composure,” he said.“That’s happened with a lot of training as well and I feel like now when I do get to those positions I’m more composed.“I’m looking around and I’m seeing if I have time to control the ball and see where the keeper is.“I feel like after I did that run and chopped back there was literally no one in the box apart from Ilias (Chair) and I couldn’t find him so I thought let me just slot it and it paid off.” The 22-year-old has improved on his goal tally from last season when he only managed to score twice in the league, while he has also notched five Championship assists this season.But the former Blackpool man was disappointed that he was unable to further add to his tally in the game having missed a glorious chance from just a couple of yards out after scoring.He added: “I had a few chances after and the Angel (Rangel) one, I literally saw it late and I thought let me just try and get contact with it but it hit my heel and it went backwards.“The one with Ebz (Eze) when he gave it to me, I tried to hit it across goal but I think I hit it too much and it went a bit high and the keeper saved it.“But like I said I want to be in those positions because the more I get in them the more chances I have of scoring.“It was a very good performance, we showed great character. “We didn’t start off well and conceded two very early but we kept on going.“For us to score four is a great achievement and we’re confident we can try and take it into the next game.”Osayi-Samuel was born in Benin, Nigeria, then moved with his family to Spain before emigrating to England when he was 10 years old, settling in Woolwich London.He made his professional debut for Blackpool in March 2015.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram After successfully warding off suitors for Bright Osayi-Samuel during the January transfer window, as a way of holding on to one of their prized players, Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers has triggered an extension clause in the Nigerian-born winger’s contractThe Nigerian-born winger now has a contract with the London club until the end of the 2020-2021 season.Bright Osayi-Samuel has appeared in 80 official matches for QPR, scoring 10 goals and has produced six assists.last_img read more

USC set to compete in separate meets

first_imgLooking to build on a strong showing at the Trojan Invitational last week, the No. 8 USC men’s and No. 23 women’s track and field teams will compete in two meets: the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif., and the Cal-Nevada championships in La Jolla, Calif.USC distance athletes will compete in the Stanford Invitational, and another set of runners and throwers will show their mettle in the Cal-Nevada championships. Both meets will commence today and continue through Saturday.The Trojans enter these meets coming off a 10-event win, as well as wins in the men’s and women’s hammer throw, at Cromwell Field last weekend. As the season reaches its midpoint, the men’s and women’s teams are taking advantage of every opportunity to set high marks and produce strong performances going into the rest of the season.“This is the time where we are trying to race and compete; run, jump and throw,” USC Director of Track and Field Ron Allice said. “This is the time to get good marks and standards, and progress towards the best we can be in April, May and June.”Five of USC’s middistance athletes will join more than 3,300 athletes and 100 collegiate teams at Cobb Track & Angell Field for the 29th annual Stanford Invitational.On the men’s side, sophomore Myles Andrews will race the 800m and senior Eric Battles will compete in the 1500m. Freshman Katerina Berdousi will run the 3000m and senior Shelby Buckley and sophomore Erica Capellino will represent the women’s team in the 800m and 1500m.While the distance athletes are competing in the north, the men’s and women’s sprinters and throwers will be taking on 29 schools at Triton Track and Field Stadium. The Trojans will compete against 27 other California schools as well as UNLV and Nevada. The event will begin on Friday at noon with the men’s hammer, and continue through mid-afternoon on Saturday.In addition to the two weekend meets, the team jump-started the week with several athletes competing in the decathlon at the 17th annual Cal Multi-Events Meet in Berkeley, Calif. The event included solid performances by junior Viktor Fajoyomi and sophomore Jemal Williams on the men’s team, and sophomore Kiana Henry on the women’s team. Several of the competitors did not have previous decathlon experience, including Fajoyomi.“Fajoyomi is our high jump, triple jumper,” Allice said. “[We’re] converting him to see if he can do a decathlon. This is kind of an experiment.”After completing their races this weekend, the teams have their sights set on a plethora of critical, and greatly anticipated, relays and meets.“After this weekend, we will come back and get ready for the big push,” Allice said.The team will strive to continue its momentum with the Florida Relays next week, as well as a two-day invitational at CSU Long Beach. Both competitions will help the team prepare for the Mt. San Antonio College Relays and the annual highly coveted USC-UCLA dual meet, where the USC and UCLA teams go head-to-head.“The UCLA dual meet is one of the most watched and interesting meets of the year,” Allice said.The team has a long road of racing, jumping and throwing ahead, but Allice is confident that each meet will prove valuable in helping his athletes get in optimal condition going into the bigger competitions and NCAA championships.“At this time, we are trying to improve on fitness levels and performance levels,” Allice said.last_img read more
