Jurgen Klopp has deployed Divock Origi in an attempt to replace the injured Sadio Mane and the young forward will have to be at his best, if he is to contribute in a similar way to the former Southampton man. A Simon Francis corner fell to an unmarked Marc Pugh at the back post and his volley looked all over a goal but somehow went the wrong side of the post.
Chelsea's lead was cut to seven points after they lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace at the weekend, but they preserved their advantage over Tottenham Hotspur by seeing off City. Conte's team were back in front after 35 minutes when Fernandinho conceded a penalty with a foul on Pedro. A loose kick by home goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois - another Belgium worldwide - enabled Sergio Aguero to level for City in the 26th minute.

He was fouled on a basket and made the free throw. And I used to say that I hoped that it was over with before I retired. Are Monday's NCAA basketball champions headed to the White House? The junior's relief was personal just as much as it was team-wide.
Watch the fourth and final Test between India and Australia live from 3.50am on Saturday on Sky Sports 2. Kohli, who batted in the nets on Friday, said the full extent of an injury could only be known in match conditions and that he would strictly follow the advice of the physiotherapist.
Thompson's playing partner Suzann Pettersen said she knew there was a problem right away when the rules officials came out and praised Thompson for keeping her cool. "Handled that with grace and fight" on Twitter. The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) were quick to defend their actions and released a statement after they made a decision to hand her the penalty.
Bartolo Colon just has that effect on people. He liked the result, too. The Braves look for their first series win in 2017 at 7:10 p.m. (ET). The Braves got to Rafael Montero in the 12th inning, as Matt Kemp hit his third double of the game to give the Braves a 3-1 lead.
The Spurs are 29-7 at home, and the contest against the Warriors begins a stretch during which four of five games are at the AT&T Center. The Warriors continued to impress as they faced off against James Harden and the Rockets. The Warriors shouldn't let one more loss to them bring them down because the Spurs, surely, won't get too high off a win. Warriors vs Spurs: Could team face again in playoffs? That would put Durant's return on Saturday, April 8 against the Pelicans.
West Ham United were superb in the first half as they made lots of attempts at goal and Arsenal would have their goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez to thank for his numerous saves as he denied Andy Caroll and Andre Ayew. Arsenal huffed and puffed against West Ham in the opening 45 minutes, having a penalty appeal turned down after Theo Walcott was tackled by Arthur Masuaku.
Ironically, his final beard-less game had also come against Sevilla, where the first signs of stubble can be seen on the maestro's face as he led Barca to Copa del Rey glory in May 2016. The game was as good as over in the 33rd minute when Messi scored his second of the evening and 43rd of the campaign. The last act of the game summed up Sevilla's frustrations as Vitolo received a second yellow card for a petulant kick out at Neymar as Barca saw out a comfortable success.
He better live up to all the hype and then some if he wants to ask the team about un-retiring numbers. Waldman: "No, he wanted number seven ." . Co-host Joe Benigno asked, "Did he even know who Mickey Mantle was?" "I didn't ask him", Waldman replied.
And in a moment that Hollywood writers wish they could conjure up, Bella answered yes with a big kiss and a large round of applause. The matchup seemed all but inevitable. After a year and a half, you asked me all the time. Bella added: "I was shocked and I couldn't have said "yes" quick enough". Nikki's twin sister Brie Bella - who missed WrestleMania because she is heavily pregnant with her and Daniel Bryan's first child - quickly rushed to Twitter to congratulate the couple.
They could declare for the draft, or they could remain with North Carolina. The Tar Heels were able to pin their opponent in the end, 71-65, winning the school's sixth national title. "We got good shots and had the ball where we wanted". Jackson had 16 but went 0 for 9 from 3. The country's best defensive team wasn't just cutting off the Tar Heels' fast break and forcing them into bad shots, they were also grabbing more rebounds than one of the best rebounding teams in the country.
In the end, North Carolina erased a seven-point first-half deficit and led by three thanks to a jumper by Isaiah Hicks with 26 seconds. Berry was named the outstanding player of the Final Four . Whistles broke up any semblance of a rhythm that either team may have had and made shooting from the field and any offensive flow seem impossible for both sides.
Point spread taken Sunday from the consensus odds at VegasInsider.com. This group, this uncommon group of veteran players in an era of one-and-dones and transfers, took its place in not only North Carolina history but basketball history, losing the title game one year - in the most heartbreaking fashion imaginable - only to come back a year later and finish the job.
Yet will the WWE give fans the predictable ending? The match between them for the Universal Championship is supposed to be the main event of the night. Many hoped he would supplant Roman Reigns as RAW's top "face", especially as Balor's ascension to the top coincided with Reigns coming off a 30 day suspension for violating the WWE's Wellness Policy.
The International Olympic Committee , having refused to give in to National Hockey League demands on issues such as covering players' injury insurance, said it "feels very sorry for the athletes". The NHL is making a bad decision, based on money. Hockey fans Global News spoke with in Edmonton also said they were disappointed NHL players would not be participating.
It's a hard jump to make, going from playing to color commentary in a matter of months, but it's one Romo is willing to attempt. The 36-year-old veteran quarterback will no longer be calling plays for the Dallas Cowboys, but rather CBS Sports.
Liverpool fans having been waiting patiently to hear an official update from the club on the health of Sadio Mane following his knee injury suffered against Everton last weekend, but when Jurgen Klopp faced the press on Tuesday to give an update his comments weren't very satisfying.
Bodog puts The Undertaker's odds at 13/4 compared to Reigns' 2/11. No, seriously. This all started during the promotion of WWE 2K17, for which Lesnar was the cover athlete and Goldberg was a pre-registration bonus character; after Goldberg appeared on ESPN SportsCenter's "Off the Top Rope" in October, plans for a match at Survivor Series came together quickly.
He was hit by a pitch, struck in the elbow while running to second and then drilled in the earflap of his helmet on a play at home. Good news on that front: he passed. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said he would be evaluated for a concussion later Tuesday night and on Wednesday. Thursday marks his first time on a big league mound in game action since a Game 2 loss against these same Cubs in the 2015 NLDS.
I don't think they will be shaken [by the Palace result]. Their teams control a lot of aspects. They're so young, just 20, 21 years old and what they're doing already now is unbelievable. That's why we are not where we would like to be. "Our performance was 1,000 miles better than the Arsenal game". "I think it was right because in the second half we didn't risk".
The ball meets the helmet of Stephen Piscotty . When Kolten Wong hit a dribbler past Arrieta for an infield hit, Piscotty kept coming from second and scored. After getting hit on the right elbow by Arrieta, he was hit on the left elbow by Contreras as he was stealing second base. "I think everybody is really happy with the vibe that we had going on this locker room.
The Cardinals might be the only team able to challenge Chicago in the division, boasting a starting rotation that includes Carlos Martinez , Michael Wacha, Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn . Piscotty (head) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs. After a couple minutes, Piscotty got up and then walked off the field under his own power, although he was removed before the top of the sixth by Matheny.
Victory for Arsenal means they climb back above Manchester United to fifth in the table but for the unhappy Hammers, five defeats on the bounce leaves them only four points above the drop zone and leaves Slaven Bilic in an uncomfortable position that his opposite number will be well accustomed to.
Dustin Johnson, the world No 1 and favourite to win this 81st Masters, is a big doubt to play in Thursday's first round after injuring his back falling down the stairs in his rental home on Wednesday afternoon. Two of those titles were World Golf Championships, and his undefeated week at the Match Play made him the first player to capture all four of the WGCs.
Mrs. Day has recovered and will be in Augusta for the first time this weekend. That cushion was decreased after he shot back-to-back bogeys at the 10th and 11th holes, but it was the elusive Amen Corner, Augusta's 12th hole, the devilish region known commonly as Golden Bell, that ultimately cost Spieth the tournament and his second consecutive green jacket.
Following his heart-stopping win yesterday in Miami over Tomas Berdych in which he saved two match points, Roger Federer said he doesn't mind it when it gets loud. "(My thought process is) don't mess up, hit a few aces, stay aggressive on the return, all those silly things that never work but they seem to be working now".
He was more interested in talking about the grass that he just put on the greens. McIlroy was in great shape a year ago when he went into the weekend one shot behind Spieth, a star pairing in the final group on Saturday. Perhaps only Johnson can drive the ball as long and accurately as McIlroy, whose chances often hinge on the quality of his wedge game and putter. But those that capture a victory here amongst the Georgia pines can expect that payout to be much more through the years-and ...
The Cowboys: When Romo tweeted a photo of himself wearing a jacket with the CBS logo, it was clear that this was a move that was in the works for weeks. The Texans don't need a standout QB to carry their team. Colin Kaepernick might have been considered here, but because his skill set does not fit that of a traditional dropback passer, any team that was interested in Romo would be more likely to kick the tires on Cutler.
Mickelson, 46, says no golf tournament should be decided in such a manner, believing the decision should be reversed and Thompson declared the victor. When asked about the situation again later, Mickelson wanted to make clear he wasn't speaking about Thompson directly. He was much more vague with his response.
Taylor would have gotten the victor if he had controlled Bale's brilliant pass through the defense, while Shane Long had Ireland's best opportunity when he didn't make contact from a corner. I have not seen it again. 'Seamus has great determination and sometimes things works very well in your favour in terms of recovery. Asked if the former Tottenham man's challenge had been late, the 35-year-old, who will now miss Tuesday night's friendly against Iceland, said: "Maybe, but thankfully I'm ...
He tweeted it was "disappointing for all the players that can't be part of the most special adventure in sports". It put American hockey on the map even more. "It's disappointing - I think that's easy to say", Connor McDavid said in a video posted to Oilers TV on Tuesday . "Everybody wants to go there".
Giovinazzi, 23, stood in for Wehrlein at the season opening Australian Grand Prix, after the German declared himself unfit to race on Friday evening, months after a crash at the Race of Champions event in Miami that saw Wehrlein miss the first week of winter testing - again leaving Giovinazzi to step into the vehicle alongside Marcus Ericsson .
The ball snuck past Mignolet and the Reds were undone by their set piece defending yet again. The Cherries had few opportunities and Klavan had to do better than allow King to turn into a shooting position inside the area. Coutinho had to leave the field and after being replaced by Matip he headed straight down the tunnel. "We did that and that will further enhance us in further games".
