He is undoubtedly one of the most improved players under Klopp and Liverpool fans will be desperate to see him maintain, if not improve, this level. Klopp did not consider dropping the player, however. "He deserved the goal". But Klopp said it was "not the moment" to shower praise on individuals.
Rousey (12-1) is returning to the Octagon after more than a year of layoff following her loss of the women's bantamweight title to Holly Holm. If Rousey got close to her opponent, the chances were they would end up on the ground in an arm bar.
That was when the Packers were 4-6 and basically had nothing to lose. The Lions are now the sixth NFC wild card and host the Packers next week in a battle for the NFC North title.

The exchange aired on The Fight Network in Canada. It seems that a few of Cruz's fans attacked Garbrandt's girlfriend via social media when she tried to stick up for her boyfriend Garbrandt. "You're a room away". But somehow Cruz ended up being paired with rising star and #5 ranked Cody Garbrandt while the #1 ranked Dillashaw ended up being aligned with the #2 ranked bantamweight, John Lineker.
Within three minutes of the restart he was nearly played in by Ibrahimović, though the Swede's low cross was slightly behind the Frenchman with the goal gaping. "To give people this idea that I'm not happy here but that I was happy in London... it's bulls***". They had just won the title by 11 points and I know Sir Alex was a genius but was he that much of one? "I'm not really surprised [by Ibrahimovic's form] because he's a very intelligent guy and he's a very proud man ".
The England global has once again found it hard to establish himself as a first team regular with Arsenal this season. The report states that the England global would cost somewhere between £20-25m, taking into account the reality that he would cost less in the summer, and nothing at all in 18 months' time.
Curry, who bemoaned taking a mere 11 shots in the Christmas game, didn't exactly come out gunning on Wednesday, but did act more as a playmaker. Only three teams have played fewer home games than the Dubs' 14, but that is about to even out real soon, as the Warriors are about to get a real dose of home cooking in the coming weeks.
Goals by Erik Sviatchenko and Stuart Armstrong gave Celtic a win that, coupled with Rangers' draw at St Johnstone, means the champions go to Ibrox on Saturday with a 16 point advantage and a game in hand over their greatest rivals. Ryan Christie was handed a rare start against County - the 21-year-old midfielder earning his seventh appearance of the season. However, he suggested that others were putting pressure on his more established players.
Rousey will face Nunes at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada for UFC 207 on December 30. She has a solid opportunity at becoming the second woman in as many calendar years to defeat Rousey inside the cage. Though many felt UFC 193 was Rousey's fight to win, the unexpected outcome left the world with what seemed a more than suitable replacement for the fallen queen: Holly Holm.
The Indian cricket captain for Test matches Virat Kohli and Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma are probably gotten engaged in Dehradun. The couple was spotted getting clicked with someone. . February 2014: Anushka and Virat were caught on camera walking hand-in-hand in Auckland where India was playing against New Zealand. Needless to say, Anushka's family and close friends are already staying at the decided venue and the preparations have begun for the Big Day away from the glares of media! ...
Austin Rivers scored 22 points with four rebounds, two steals and two triples against the Pelicans on Wednesday. Marreese Speights, who scored 11 points, missed a 3-pointer that would have tied the score in the final seconds. Gentry appeared to be arguing that Paul initiated the contact and then went up for a shot, and that even if there was a foul, there should not have been free throws.
One can only imagine how many dustbins have been kicked and desks banged by Sky Sports' department for hyperbole as they come to terms with not having the rights to show the New Year's Eve game between Liverpool and Manchester City. And his manager Jurgen Klopp praised Sturridge for his contribution against The Potters: "I was more than pleased, it was a flawless goal". "I don't think they need it".
The Football Association of Wales refused to grant Coleman permission to speak to Hull City in the summer and would not want to lose their manager halfway through their qualification campaign for the 2018 World Cup. That's what I've always told my players. The former USA national team and MetroStars coach took over a team that had been struggling and his presence did not make things much better.
A timely turnover could swing the momentum of this game in Ohio State's favor. "They told us yesterday that we've had over 750 Clemson snaps or something like that from the scout team". With eight new starters on each side of the ball this year, a return to the College Football Playoff seemed unlikely; even coach Urban Meyer acknowledged he thought the Buckeyes were at least a season away from competing for a national title again.
Blewitt drilled it right down the middle with plenty of distance to spare, and the Panthers took an early 3-0 lead. TAKE ME OUT TO THE BOWL GAME: George Steinbrenner was known in NY as "The Boss". Jackson added a 40-yard, third-quarter score and finished with 32 carries for 224 yards and three touchdowns. The score was set up on a 57-yard sweep by wide receiver Quadree Henderson on the first play of the 68-yard march.
Alabama certainly isn't going to give Washington any free plays. Those who have focused on the matchup the most may not feel that way, though. Is Washington a contender or pretender? Sometimes things fall through and sometimes things don't go the way we plan.
Hayward finished with 31 points, one short of his season high, while Ingles added 13 off the bench to help the Jazz break a three-game slump and move to 19-13. "I thought we started defending better in the second half, and there was a period where they hit some tough shots", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. "He's just got a knack".
Pritchard's three-pointer pulled OR to within one, 87-86, with 12.9 seconds left. Brooks and the Ducks took advantage of the mismatch against senior guard Bryce Alford on the perimeter, nailing 7-of-14 from beyond the arc despite averaging just 6.5 a game.
But a loss to Denver and a Kansas City win at San Diego hands the Chiefs the division and bumps Oakland down to the No. 5. The Patriots are always a popular bet, and, despite Miami winning nine of their last ten games and being a playoff team this year, there is not a lot of national love for the South Florida franchise.
Anthony's night ended with 3:08 left in the second quarter and Atlanta leading 43-38. Therefore, tonight's game featuring the Knicks playing the under.500 and yet still somehow the #5 seed in the Eastern Conference Atlanta Hawks, is huge.
Lopez dunked to tie the game with 12.5 seconds left, but there was plenty of time for Butler to win it. With the Bulls down seven, Nikola Mirotic took an very bad off-balance jumper (theme of the night) that clanked off the rim. Butler turned his ankle early in the fourth quarter but returned shortly thereafter, after seeing the Nets were not just playing because the game was on the schedule.
She did cede to a couple of UFC promotional requests though, Embedded being one of them. "I think that when she feels the power of Amanda, not just in her hands, but in her hips when she does try to take her down - because Amanda has a strong base - she is gonna get a little frustrated and is gonna show more of her mistakes, and that's when Amanda will be able to capitalize".
Had to dump it on air but when @JimWhite asked Bob how he feels right now, he responded: "I'm pissed off". Whether Wales would let him go is another matter, but Swansea are bound to be interested in a man who has done so much for Welsh football in recent years, and he's just 6/1 for the Swansea job this evening.
Some games, like last week's loss to Carolina, the offense was sluggish. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he has no idea how the Giants will play this game as far as who starts, who finishes and who sits it out entirely. We've played really well at times and not played well at times. "We have 53 on the roster, we're going to activate 46". Nevertheless, the starters expect to play against the Washington Redskins.
A few factors for the strong viewership numbers for Ravens-Steelers. "I want to make sure I'm healthy, and get in there and make a run". He, obviously, puts me in great situations being the player that he is, taking all the right checks, trusting me being his second-best or his second-most reliable pass catcher that he depends on throughout the year.
The 25-year-old native of Korkino, Russia was a revelation in his rookie season with the 'Hawks, scoring 30 goals and adding 47 assists on the way to claiming the 2016 Calder Trophy. To accommodate Panarin long-term, the Blackhawks now have two years to figure out which other highly-paid players they can move on from. "We want to bring him back and keep him in Chicago".
Estudiantes are paying Veron the lowest wage in their squad, while the player is donating all of his wages back into the club to help develop the academy that he came through over two decades ago. Veron could make his return in the Florida Cup against Bayer Leverkusen on January 8. "He will play from January for the tournament [league] and Copa [Libertadores in 2017]".
White then went on to reveal that he hasn't spoken to Lesnar about a return. Lesnar ended up winning the fight with a dominant unanimous decision verdict, but the results were later overturned when he failed two drug tests for the fight.
The amusing thing is that most of the pundits who rip Bradley for his performance also say that no one could have done the job at Swansea. When Bradley took over the Swans, his mandate was clear: He needed to bring organization and defensive solidity to a club that conceded goals like they were going out of style.
The Raiders have their own issues at quarterback, where backup Matt McGloin is starting after Derek Carr broke his right leg last weekend. With the loss - which wasn't all Siemian's fault - the Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs for the first time since 2010, ending their AFC West dynasty.
Artemi Panarin continues to shine with a seven-game point streak during which he has collected five goals and eight assists, while Patrick Kane is three points away from 700 for his career. Chicago's Corey Crawford blocked 31 shots in his second start since returning from an appendectomy that cost him 10 games. He has five goals and 14 points during the run.
The No. 5 Nittany Lions will now have to take on No. 9 USC on January 2 without a regular starter on both sides of the ball. Saeed Blacknall caught two touchdowns for Penn State in the Big Ten title game. With Bowen's suspension, the Nittany Lions will have three eligible players from the area for the game. Redshirt sophomore Koa Farmer likely will replace Bowen; Farmer practiced with the starters Wednesday.
In control long before Pedro put them ahead with a superb individual strike in the 24th minute, they effectively killed off Bournemouth's hopes with Eden Hazard's 49th-minute penalty before Pedro's deflected second wrapped up the win. "I think that was probably where we fell short". "When you have him and Pedro and Willian counter-attacking on you at such pace it's hard. We take game after game and try to win every game", Hazard added.
On the next possession for Pitt, however, it was the big play that got the Panthers back into the game, with Peterman hitting Jester Weah on a beautifully-thrown 69-yard touchdown pass just 17 seconds after the Wildcats' second score. By air or by land, Pitt (8-4) hadn't been almost as successful on offense until Peterman connected with Weah. On the flip side of the coin, Northwestern should be able to use its credible passing attack led by sophomore Clayton Thorson against Pittsburgh's ...
Kyle Whittingham is finishing his 12th full season as the Utes' head coach, and his 9-1 record in bowl games (including a win in the Fiesta Bowl following the 2004 season when he and departing Urban Meyer were officially co-head coaches) suggests he knows how to prepare his team for postseason games.
