It's quite easy to predict Manchester United's approach when they go to the Emirates, the vital three points to book their place in the Champions League will be the priority for Jose's men. "Sergio played one match in the Premier League and David played two in the Europa League against Fenerbahce and Feyenoord".

It was still dark when Kipchoge - along with Zersenay Tadese, the half-marathon world-record holder, and Lelisa Desisa, a double Boston Marathon victor - stepped on to the track shortly before 5.45am local time on Saturday morning. Kipchoge's near miss at two hours may change the way runners view the time and pace - much like Bannister did with the mythical four-minute mile.
Game 5 is Monday at the Air Canada Centre. The Bucks' motto is "Fear the Deer ", and the hard-charging Bucks, with a young starting lineup that includes two rookies and a 22-year-old star in Antetokounmpo, had the Raptors running scared from the opening tip-off.

Tate's story is a colorful one. Although he played into the 2016 season, he failed to advance beyond high-A ball, producing a.226/.331/.321 batting line with ten home runs and 62 steals in six seasons. Two other freshmen, K'hari Lane and Rhett Rodriguez (coach Rich Rodriguez's son), will also enter the fold.
