Perine averages six yards per carry and has scored 50 touchdowns in his career as a Sooner, even tallying 321 receiving yards over the three years.

This recent outburst after the game against Burnley, even though his side won, further highlights how much of a toll all the aspects of the English game are taking on the Catalan-born manager. That said, I think hat-trick hero Gray could play for another 100 years and not find a backline as abject as the Black Cats and his performance will only ensure the home side pay a little bit of extra attention to him.
The more the 49ers try to change, the more things stay deranged.

Thanks to the Los Angeles Rams finishing with only four wins on the year, the Tennessee Titans have to be pleased for locking up the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. This was the first draft by general manager Mike Maccagnan and head coach Todd Bowles as they looked to build the team in their own image. Earlier this week I outlined how the Jets could end up with the 4th pick in the 2017 National Football League draft.
It took a year for Rousey to regain her composure and confidence to once again enter the octagon, and square off against another foe. If she wanted the rematch I'm going to do the same thing.

After 10-man Manchester City overcame Burnley 2-1 with a hard-fought win, a gruff Guardiola provided a number of freakish interviews regarding the game, suggesting that the pressure is beginning to mount. The Citizens are now placed third in the Premier League table and are seven points behind league leaders Chelsea. So, just who will Guardiola select for the high-pressure match against the Clarets?

Second half strikes from Gael Clichy and Sergio Aguero handed Pep Guardiola's side their 13th win of the campaign in a game which saw Iheanacho replaced at half time by their Argentine marksman. Asked about the Fernandinho incident by the BBC , Guardiola said: "You're the journalist not me".

Lockie Ferguson took three wickets, including that of Mahmudullah, to keep Bangladesh's batsmen in check and Williamson then added further misery with a second consecutive unbeaten score over 50.
I want the biggest draw. But he had a plan to reach the goal of winning a UFC title that he had set the first time he watched an event as a troubled 13-year-old in Ohio.
