Bottas' recent bright form - pole position in Bahrain and victory at Sochi - has confirmed him as a worthy successor to retired 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg at Mercedes where, temporarily, he has managed to put three-time world champion Hamilton in the shade.
I think we managed in the second half to keep playing our game and waiting and being patient until the opportunity comes. "Every game we try to give ourselves a chance", the experienced goalkeeper told BBC Sport following a 2-0 victory at St Mary's on Wednesday.
They believe Trubisky has a chance to develop into a solid starter, but it will take time and patience. Houston used the pick acquired from the Browns on quarterback Deshaun Watson. The Arlington Martin alum sported a Cleveland Indians jersey with his name stitched across the back as all three of the Browns' first-round draft picks threw out the ceremonial pitch prior to the Indians' game against Seattle on Friday night.
He played in six games for San Francisco last season, throwing five touchdown passes and six interceptions. Gabbert joins a depth chart that includes 10-year National Football League veteran Drew Stanton, Zac Dysert, and recent undrafted free agent acquisition Trevor Knight.
The goals left Atletico only one away from sending the match into extra time , but Diego Simeone's team was not able to keep pressuring as it did in the first minutes of the game. "I'm now the coach of Real Madrid, the club of my life, and it'll be a special final", Zidane was quoted as saying by club's official website. The furthest an English side progressed in the Champions League this season was Leicester, who reached the quarter-finals.
Conte has naturally dismissed the speculation and insists he will see out the remaining two years of his contract in the Premier League. We must focus and prepare well for this game. Following Monday's win, Chelsea have 84 points from 35 matches and are seven points ahead of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur and can win the league on Friday with an away victory over West Bromwich Albion, reports Efe.
We are excited but this is football, you have to concentrate until the last minute and we will see. "On Friday, we have an opportunity to win and to take a title". "After the Tottenham result (against West Ham), naturally spirits were high in training and everybody was buzzing". "There are three games to go but always the most important is the next one".
However, going into Houston's Toyota Center and trying to win with a hobbled Leonard is much different than doing it in San Antonio's own AT&T Center. The series returns to Houston on Thursday, where the Rockets fight for the opportunity to extend this series to its deciding game. "We will play big and we will play small as we have in all our games", Popovich said.
Those three players are the club's backbone that won Champions League finals in both Lisbon and Milan and now will attempt to defeat Juventus in the final at Cardiff.

They now await the victor of the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs series that is tied at two games apiece. Yet, in Game 4, Green and Thompson showed up and produced the numbers expected of them. Curry, who led the way with 30 points and 7 assists, feels his team is peaking at the right time. The same defensive versatility also gave fits to Joe Ingles, Rodney Hood and Derrick Favors, all of whom scored well below their season averages.
Mourinho said that he considers Thursday's match "the most important match of our history". Do you think Manchester United is pretty much set for the final, or do you think Celta will come back? Asked if he thinks this could be his final chance to reach a big final with United , Rooney said: "My focus is on trying to help us win this final and that's my sole focus".
Jay Beagle, eyes wet, could not bear to think too hard about a future without some of his Capitals teammates. I would say the answer to that is yes. The Washington Capitals - despite needing multiple overtimes to eliminate an eighth-seeded Maple Leafs squad in round one - should have been unstoppable.
While the market expects the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates unchanged, investors will be keen to analyze the central bank reaction to the recent patch in the economy. The rate-setting committee also is still waiting to see to what extent Trump administration policies on tax, spending and regulation will be able to get through Congress.
It will be the ninth time Juventus, runners-up to Barcelona in 2015, contest the final of Europe's elite club competition. "To play in another final of such a massive competition is great for everybody". For Monaco, the loss of Nabil Dirar to injury in the warm-up meant a hasty return for Benjamin Mendy as coach Leonardo Jardim opted to match Juve's 3-5-2 set-up.
However, the Red Devils have two games in hand, so anything but a win, would be catastrophic for the visiting side this Saturday . While many of Everton's players flattered to deceive, there was a big positive in the form of young defender Jonjoe Kenny.
Economists had widely expected the number of new jobs created in April to rebound following a disappointing figure in March that was due primarily to inclement weather. The job gains were broad-based, with hefty increases in leisure and hospitality, health care and social assistance as well as business and professional services.
Everton will finish seventh in the Premier League his season, a decent return from Koeman's first season in charge, and the Dutchman is likely already planning for the next campaign. "We all know it will be hard". One is sign. If he doesn't, we need to sell the player. "I don't know it's up to the player and he needs to make a decision".
It's just a matter of hitting the Ping-Pong jackpot in the draft lottery Tuesday to select those players. But they serve as a good introduction for the team to the prospects. Here are some of the players attending the Combine who the Pistons might consider in the draft (Note: Some players the Pistons might be considering, like Frank Ntilikina of France and Lauri Markkanen of Arizona, aren't attending the Combine).
Conte made a point of saluting Boro's travelling fans after the game. Chelsea's Diego Costa scores their first goal against Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge, May 8, 2017. He added: "Now there is the pressure, but now it's a good pressure, a pressure that this pressure must bring in our heart excitement". "I am enjoying it more now than I was a week or two ago when it was really tight, we were winning and they [Tottenham] were winning, and the pressure was on".
The Sun reports that Riyad Mahrez has decided he wants to leave Leicester City this summer, with Arsenal and Tottenham the front runners for his signature. Mauricio Pochettino wants to add more width and flair to his wings and while a deal for Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha remains his top choice, a swoop for the 2016 Player of the Year could prove less complicated.
The Wizards would have to win at a venue where they've been unsuccessful since 2014 to advance to the conference finals.

He is about to complete his 10th full year as a pro, and it's been a reasonable ride. But he's gone through quite a bit since he tied for seventh at the Masters. For all his greatness, McIlroy didn't even break par at The Players until his fourth appearance. While he has missed the last two cuts at this event, I chalk that up to poor ball-striking form at the time.
Iconic batsman Younis was given a guard of honour before opening what should be his penultimate Test innings, but he was happy to play a backing role and let Azhar lead the way. He and Masood looked at ease against new-ball bowlers Shannon Gabriel and Alzarri Joseph and West Indies turned to spin from as early as the ninth over, with the move paying dividends.
Infantino, addressing his second congress as president, invoked the rhetoric favoured by U.S. President Donald Trump as he defended his record. There are a lot of fake news and alternative facts as well circulating about Federation Internationale de Football Association.

The football team's multiyear score of 971 is tied for sixth in the Pac-12. The news was welcomed by athletic director Edward Scott, who replaced Floyd Kerr on November 7. Women's soccer , which is second among C-USA teams in that sport , had a score of 997, 11 points above the national average of 986.

Very good technique in a short space, he scores important goals. He has invention in his head. "He is creative and not phased by anything, and surprised everybody in the stadium tonight with his goal", Wenger said. A strong performance today. We came to a hard ground today and we go to another on Saturday. We shot ourselves in the foot against Tottenham and we are aware we need to win all the remaining games to be in the race.
Juventus won the reverse fixture 2-1 in Turin to progress into their second final in three seasons 4-1 on aggregate. We are very happy with this semi-final and very proud of the players. But once the visitors had soaked up the early pressure they began to assert their experience and organisation with veteran Dani Alves increasingly influential.
On the prospect of fighting Fury, Joshua said "it feels that we're heading in that direction". Nigerian-born British Anthony Joshua will reportedly be touring Nigeria soon following his WBA Heavyweight championship victory over Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday, April 29.
It's going to be close between both of the Ferraris and both of the Mercedes drivers this year, so it will be exciting - but unfortunately a lot of times it will depend on what happens on the first lap. Raikkonen dropped from second to third at the start and said there was no way back after that. For all of Hamilton's problems, his poor show must take nothing away from Bottas who registered the first victory of his career at attempt number 81.
Joshua, meanwhile, now boasts a ideal 19-0 record following his win over Klitschko , with all of the 27-year-old's victories coming inside the distance. "Anthony was better today than I. It's really sad that I didn't make it tonight". During the fight, the new champ sent Klitschko to the canvas three times, but the heavyweight legend kept coming.
Saul Niguez, who had a poor outing at the Santiago Bernabeu, scored a great header in the 12th minute from a Koke corner to get the hosts up and running in the tie. "Danilo is a mediocre player and I don't know if they will be able to get Dani Carvajal back in time for the Final. We are happy to be in the Final again", Zidane told Mediaset Premium.
Leonard still played 38 minutes on the night, and actually stayed in the game after the injury until the fourth quarter. What wasn't status quo was the last six or seven minutes of game action, where we saw the high-octane Houston offense completely shut down and the Spurs won the game with Kawhi Leonard on the bench.
The victory gives Chelsea 84 points from 35 matches, seven points ahead of second-placed Tottenham , heading into Friday's potential title-clincher at West Brom.
