Rodgers’s Premier League return starts with Watford defeat

first_img0Shares0000Brendan Rodgers’s return to the Premier League with Leicester began with defeat at Watford © AFP / OLLY GREENWOODLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 3 – Brendan Rodgers’s first match as Leicester boss ended in a dramatic defeat as Andre Gray scored in stoppage time to give Watford a 2-1 win at Vicarage Road.Rodgers left Scottish champions Celtic to take charge of the Foxes on Tuesday after winning seven domestic trophies north of the border. But the former Liverpool boss was given a tough welcome back to the Premier League when substitute Gray pounced on Troy Deeney’s fine through ball.“It will take time to impose a lot of the ideas we want,” insisted Rodgers.“There were a lot of good signs. I was pleased despite not getting the result,” he added.The Hornets had taken an early lead when Deeney flicked home Gerard Deulofeu’s free-kick and looked set for all three points as Leicester laboured despite dominating possession.“Based on possession and keeping the ball Leicester deserve it, but we were more potent especially in the first half,” said Deeney.One incisive Youri Tielemans pass, though, undid the Watford defence and Jamie Vardy prodded home his 10th goal of the season 15 minutes from time.“It looked like only one team would win the game,” Rodgers said.“When we had an opportunity it was a great pass from Youri and Jamie does what he does.“You felt Watford were getting deeper and the opportunities were coming for us. We started to get into really good areas and the goal at the end is a case of managing the game,” he added.Leicester even had a chance to take all three points when captain Wes Morgan headed wide.Instead, they were hit by a sucker punch when Gray brilliantly controlled Deeney’s lofted pass and kept his cool to fire low past Kasper Schmeichel to spark contrasting reactions in the dugouts.A delighted Javi Gracia saw his side move level on points with Wolves in seventh for what could be a Europa League place depending on who wins the FA Cup.Leicester by contrast remain 11th, eight points further back, and with plenty of work to do if they are to match Rodgers’s ambition of a European place.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘Zouma can keep red-hot Kane quiet at Wembley’ – People’s Pundit Talking Point

first_imgDo you fancy becoming a football pundit? Take a listen to the clip above and give it your best shot here.Chelsea’s key to Capital One Cup final success is keeping red-hot Tottenham striker Harry Kane quiet, and young centre-back Kurt Zouma is the perfect man for the job.That’s the view of former Chelsea and England defender Frank Sinclair, who spoke to talkSPORT ahead of Sunday’s Wembley clash:“Does Mourinho go with Gary Cahill or Kurt Zouma alongside John Terry for the final? That’s the big question,” he said.“That’s the obvious decision the manager has to make and I fancy Zouma to start.“Gaz [Cahill] didn’t have the greatest of games [in Chelsea’s 5-3 Premier League defeat to Spurs at White Hart Lane] and Harry Kane caused him problems.“Kane is on fire at the moment and if you give him time in the box it looks like everything he’s hitting is going in the back of the net.“But Zouma may well come in to counter that, he’s got the pace to recover and that will be needed today to make that crucial tackle against Kane, who can get that half a yard in the box.”What do you think of Frank’s verdict? Do you think you could be as entertaining on the airwaves?This is your chance to prove how good a football pundit you could be!talkSPORT has teamed up with The Carlsberg Fan Squad on a mission to find Probably The Best Pundit in the World… with probably the best prize too!The winner will become part of the on air talkSPORT team, live from a Premier League ground on the final day of the season!Get recording your entries now and also keep an eye out for the People’s Pundit van, which is now on tour to catch all of your punditry skills outside UK football grounds!It’s a fantastic opportunity!

Proof of life in October? It begins now

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Beneath the surface is a substantial difference that’s not reassuring to Angels who might dare to think ahead to October. And Cabrera, who came from Boston to Anaheim over the winter, knows about the psychological difference between the World Series champion and the club it swept in the first round of the 2004 playoffs. It adds up to this as this playoff review-preview opens with the Angels’ Bartolo Colon facing the Red Sox’s Tim Wakefield this evening: “I don’t think we’re going to prove anything to them in this series,” Cabrera said. “But we have to prove to ourselves that we can play at that level.” To the Red Sox, Cabrera said, “I don’t think it means anything.” ANAHEIM – Now that the Angels are looking like a playoff team again, they ought to start looking like a playoff threat for the first time this season. They’ll get the chance the next four nights and days. The biggest of baseball’s big boys will be at Angel Stadium starting this evening. The Boston Red Sox come to town carrying heavy bats and a tall measuring stick. To the Angels, it means an opportunity to repair the self-confidence that might have been cracked by the loss of an 8-game lead, by a bunch of little injuries and by a rash of blown saves. “It’s a good test for us,” Cabrera said of the Red Sox series, “because the bullpen has struggled a little bit, and this (Boston) is a team that can hit a lot late in games.” Top the Red Sox in this four-game series, and the Angels can start to reverse a worrisome trend. Since mid-May, in their past eight series against teams that would be in the playoffs if the season ended right now and teams that are within a game or two of a division lead or wild card the Angels have only two series wins (over the Braves and Yankees) to go with six series losses (to the White Sox, Red Sox, Nationals, Yankees and A’s twice). Overall this year, against teams they could end up facing in the playoffs and World Series, the Angels’ won-lost record is 18-20. Within that are some head-scratching numbers 3-12 in one-run decisions, 4-12 in bullpen decisions, 9-7 in games where the bullpen had save opportunities. All those close games allow Angels manager Mike Scioscia to shrug off the mediocre record against good teams. So does the fact the Angels were missing Vladimir Guerrero and Francisco Rodriguez during the May-June stretch when they went 3-6 against Chicago and Boston. “There is not one team that we don’t match up well against, to where we wouldn’t feel confident about playing them,” Scioscia said before the Angels’ 4-1 loss Wednesday night to the Toronto Blue Jays kept their division lead at two games over Oakland. Still, I ask you: Which team would go into the playoffs feeling better about itself? The Angels, currently two games under .500 against potential playoff teams? Or the Red Sox, currently seven games over .500 (22-15) in that category? The Red Sox don’t have Pedro Martinez, who beat the Angels in Game 2 of the American League Division Series last October. They don’t have Curt Schilling, who won Game 1 of that series, in the starting rotation, but he’s in the bullpen keeping the closer’s chair warm for Keith Foulke. They don’t have Cabrera at shortstop. But for the most part, they’re the same Idiots who broke the curse. “The goals they had to reach at that moment were better than the Angels’,” Cabrera said, trying to explain why their 2004 playoff series was so one-sided. This time, if it comes down to the Angels and Red Sox in the first round and based on this morning’s standings, it would the series likely would turn on a more basic question: Who can beat the rest of the best? “I don’t think anybody’s thinking about the playoffs,” Cabrera said, referring to the fact that there are 42 games left in the regular season. “But don’t get me wrong. This is an exciting series because we’re playing the world champions. Every time you play teams like Oakland, (Boston), the Yankees, you want to beat them. “Right now, we need to prove to ourselves we can do it.” Kevin Modesti’s column appears in the Daily News three days a week.
