The Merseysiders sit three points ahead of United and a win for them would see Liverpool go level on points with City and Arsenal with 19 points. Or why do they think Sam Allardyce (the former England manager) did it, or why Gareth Southgate (the interim England boss) did it? Chelsea had a Champions League semi-final to play and we wanted to play Liverpool on the Saturday because the Champions League was on the Tuesday.
Djokovic played a point with the shirt hanging loose then walked over to change shirts, incurring a time violation warning from chair umpire Bernardes, which elicited sarcastic applause from the 12-time Grand Slam champion.

The lefty struck out Corey Seager and Yasiel Puig before Gonzalez lined a 102 miles per hour fastball back up the middle. CHICAGO (AP ) - After making all the right moves in the NL Division Series, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts' decision to leave in Joe Blanton quickly backfired in the Championship Series opener.
Roberts was praised for his aggressive pitching moves in the Division Series clincher at Washington, where closer Kenley Jansen was summoned in the seventh and ace starter Clayton Kershaw earned a save. It wasn't a hook in the traditional sense, as Maddon lifted Lester for pinch-hitter Jorge Soler in an attempt to add an insurance run in the home half of the sixth.

Verstappen celebrates with team post-race. His remarks are a reference to the fact Mercedes tied up a third consecutive constructors' championship title in Japan, following Nico Rosberg's win and Hamilton's third place. It appears Hamilton did not support the protest himself despite being in a position to profit from any penalty for Verstappen, originally tweeting: "There is no protest from either myself or Mercedes".

The Cubs will have Jake Arrieta , the world's greatest pitcher for a good stretch last season and a pretty good one this year. Of course, because this is an historic Cubs season, this was the first time since 1924 that a relief pitcher hit a home run in a post-season game.
But, to bastardize the Giants' mantra of "BeliEVEN", which we can now retire, the result is fairly "believeinevitable", or something. "Resources will be expended as necessary to get us there". Romo had settled the closer spot for the Giants over the latter part of September. It began slowly when Giants reliever Derek Law entered the game and Kris Bryant singled.
Tennessee is somewhat of an enigma at the half-way point of the 2016 College Football season.
