His appointment to this match was met by bewilderment, particularly from José Mourinho, who suggested it would be "difficult" to referee a match at Anfield when United are the visiting team. No team can better Liverpool's 73 Premier League goals since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp last October, but their swashbuckling attack was kept firmly in check by a United defence superbly screened by Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini.
Chances were nearly non-existent in the first half, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic spurned the best opening of the first hour when he contrived to head Paul Pogba's curling cross away from the Liverpool goal.

And if we were to fast-forward to the end of the season, when Wenger himself may leave, then the prospect of losing Ozil at the same time would be a tough one to take. "I feel all we can do is control ourselves and not really hope that other teams get results on our behalf". "We've been in this situation [contending at the top of the table] before".
He allowed early pressure and sacks to rattle him, he threw high of open receivers and he held onto the ball far too long on the Eagles' last drive when situationally he should have known better. Pederson said nothing to suggest Vaitai's on the job learning would end. "I've got to be better, especially late in the game", Wentz said Sunday.
He was lucky to escape with only a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, though under the new National Football League rules this year, one more of those would also have resulted in an ejection. Guys kind of gravitate toward his energy now and he's bringing it out there. Beckham's teammates, meanwhile, don't seem like they want to hear any of it anymore.
Walcott , who scored twice as 10-man Arsenal scraped a 3-2 win over Swansea City on Saturday, believes the Arsenal's six-game winning run is enough to intimidate their opposition at the Emirates stadium. "The more I say that, the more he is in a stronger position". But for once the team should copy its north London rival, Spurs. The cost of losing the 28-year-old Ozil would be more to Arsenal than the salary-which is said to be £200,000 per week-that he is demanding to stay.
They've thrived. They're a ideal 5-0 in the postseason and they just held the high-powered Blue Jays to one run in 18 innings in Games 1-2. The Indians starter failed to get out of the fifth inning in his only postseason start and is known to allow home runs.
Chelsea will host Manchester United next Sunday, facing their ex-manager Jose Mourinho, who returns to Stamford Bridge in a whole new light. "I'm pleased for him", he said. You see it's a different Leicester. It is important for Chalobah and Aina to understand this. Leicester play Copenhagen in Champions League Group G on Tuesday in a match which could go a long way to securing a place in the knockout stages.
Jones, who has contributed 50 tackles, half a sack and one interception in the six games he's played this season, has been dealing with shoulder soreness for weeks. Losing Jones would be a huge blow to a defense that had its best performance of the season against the Steelers. Jones, a seven-year veteran, was selected to the Pro Bowl for the first time in 2015.
This is your Sunday Night Football Open Thread. The do-it-all performer did his best to lead his team to victory by scoring his first two touchdowns of the season. Previous to this Week 6 game in prime time , four of the Colts' first five games had been decided by 6 points or less. "I would say the interactions that have occurred between Coach O'Brien and myself, or even Coach Godsey and myself for that matter, are nothing out of the norm", Osweiler said.
Tributes are paid to Munster head coach Anthony Foley outside Thomond Park at the Shannon RFC clubhouse gate.

Sebastian Giovinco was in the Toronto starting 11 as he returned from an injury and was a menace to the Montreal defence the entire match. Drogba, whose $2.2m annual salary makes him the 13th highest paid player in the league, has scored 10 goals in 18 starts for the Impact this year.
Then the Falcons hit him back - in his knee. "You know going into it, it's going to be that type of game", Ryan said of the physical play. Bennett and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team's medical staff does not consider the injury major.
The Red Devils snuffed out their Merseyside opponents' attacking threat for much of the encounter, and dealt very well with Jurgen Klopp's vaunted pressing game. United got the point they came for.

Bautista hasn't helped their cause, going 0-for-6 with five strikeouts. Bone, an undecided American voter whose 15 minutes of fame started during a presidential town hall debate, got the edge over deflated baseballs. And it's that strength - which is just the opposite of Cleveland's bullpen-heavy approach - that will keep the Jays in the series, and could even make them the favorites the longer it rolls along.
Mourinho felt that moment should have been enough to seal the win for his side, but suggested that the plaudits aimed at a Liverpool team who were kept at arm's length for much of the match have been exaggerated this season. Philippe Coutinho did produce one moment of magic that took a magical save from De Gea to stop but apart from that it was a rather tiresome affair. You have got to give them credit because most teams that go to Anfield just get undone.
In a device created to fend off allegations that he had been defensive in the game, Mourinho - who declared the stadium to have been "the quietest Anfield I've had" - said: "You like to say they are the last wonder of the world in attacking football but they are also defend and like to think defensive".
So, it's the home opener. Fowler halved the deficit at 8:31 when his wrist shot deflected off Islanders defenseman Thomas Hickey's skate and over Halak's shoulder.

"I'm pleased with the point". Bravo said: "We are thinking about what happened. The key to get a point was the belief and the work rate of the players".
The Spaniard enjoyed a hugely successful five-season spell with the Reds between 2004 and 2009, famously lifting the Champions League in his first season on Merseyside. It cost me a bit to play differently , much like Pirlo. 'The more complete you are, the better you will adapt for the long season. "It's so important for both teams.
Compared to the battle for Mosul, the capture of Dabiq from ISIL control this week might seem like a relatively minor affair. Dabiq is so emblematic for ISIL that it provided the name for its English-language magazine, one of its prime propaganda and recruiting tools.
Trinity Gay , who was 15, died from her injuries just before 5am, according to the Fayette County Coroner. Three men charged in connection with the shooting death of Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay's 15-year-old daughter pleaded not guilty Monday and face an October 25 court date.
But it's not helpful when it's 0-0 and you should have a penalty.

Arsenal play-maker Mesut Ozil is adored by Gooners but what you probably didn't know is that pop-star Justin Bieber is also a fan. Both Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ozil had been to see Bieber perform his "Purpose" show on separate nights. "I don't think they (Ludogorets) will be looking forward to playing us, that's for sure", said the 27-year-old. The very winnable game against Ludogorets on Tuesday appears to be the flawless time to give the 30-year-old a deserved rest - if he does not get one ...
Despite their vastly improved showing in limited-overs cricket in recent years, Bangladesh remain a long shot to take that form into next week's first Test against England at Chittagong .

Gibbons brought closer Roberto Osuna in for the ninth and left him in for the 10th; the manager admitted afterward that he was taking a major gamble that his bats could win the game , since Osuna probably wouldn't have been available for a Game 4.
The group is establishing itself as one of the Big 12's deepest units. The Mountaineers come in with a week of rest after defeating Kansas State 17-16 on October 1. Let's take a look at how each group did. Giving up north of 330 rushing yards on over 7 yards per carry is bad, but far too many of those yards came before anyone contacted the ball carrier.
Looking at Barrett's stat line, without watching the game, you'd swear everything went swimmingly for him and his team. That's the mark of a good staff. Barrett shook it off to direct a 13-play, 47-yard drive capped by his 1-yard TD run that cut the gap to 16-13 with 2:52 left in the third quarter. The most recent was a 59-0 win for Ohio State in the 2014 Big Ten championship game.
While the firebombing could easily have served to further divide Republicans and Democrats in North Carolina, there have been some signs of solidarity in its aftermath.
