The repairs are anticipated for completion by the end of the 2020 construction season.last_img read more

Premier League: Aguero, Klopp break records with awards for January

first_img Loading… Jurgen Klopp and Sergio Aguero have won the Premier League’s monthly awards for January, setting new records in the process. Sergio Aguero has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month for a record seventh time, while Jurgen Klopp takes home the managers’ gong for on an unprecedented fifth occasion in a single season. Manchester City striker Aguero was in lethal form throughout January, scoring six times and registering an assist from just three matches. Aguero also scored a brace in the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace and got the only goal of the game as City beat Sheffield United 1-0. Having previously been tied with Steven Gerrard and Harry Kane on six Player of the Month awards, Aguero is now out in front on his own – the 31-year-old beating out competition from Alisson, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jack Grealish, Jordan Henderson, Ayoze Perez and Jack Stephens.

Michigan primary could make or break Sanders’ campaign

first_imgDETROIT – Bernie Sanders proved his 2016presidential bid was serious with an upset victory in Michigan powered by hisopposition to free trade and appeal among working-class voters.

Michigan and five other states holdpresidential contests on Tuesday at a critical point in the Democratic race. Former Vice President Joe Biden islooking to quash Sanders’ hopes and cement his own front-runner status just a weekafter resurrecting his beleaguered White House bid with a delegate victory onSuper Tuesday.

Martinez hails Barkley after win

first_img Barkley impressed from the start and seized the initiative in the 33rd minute with a driving run finished off by a rocket of a shot into the top corner. Barkley’s shot took a slight deflection on its way past Rob Green, and there was more than a touch of luck about Everton’s second 10 minutes later as Mirallas’ free-kick diverted off Eduardo Vargas’ head and into the far corner. Press Association Mirallas left Goodison Park in a boot and on crutches, and Martinez said: “There’s clear damage in his ankle. “I don’t know if it’s going to be ligament damage or something else. We’re going to scan him in the morning. It doesn’t look too bad. It’s swollen straight away, which is a good sign.” Mutch was booked for the tackle but Martinez held back from criticising the QPR midfielder. “It’s unfortunate more than anything,” said the Spaniard. “I know the referee gave him a yellow card and I haven’t seen the challenge to give my opinion. “It’s just disappointing that it’s really late in the game. It’s been a frustrating season with a couple of injuries that he’s picked up and the last thing you want is to have an accident of that manner.” QPR have yet to pick up a point away from home this season and manager Harry Redknapp was left frustrated with his team’s inability to exploit the nerves and frustration that were evident around Goodison. “They were poor goals, and that was the problem,” said Redknapp. “Until they scored their first goal, I’ve never felt so comfortable. I thought, ‘We’ve got a big chance here tonight’. “The first goal, we gave the ball away cheaply. It’s a great strike from a fantastic young player, but it took a deflection that certainly changed the direction of the ball. “Then the second one we gave a silly free-kick away, another deflection and we’re 2-0 down at half-time. I don’t think we deserved that. “The crowd was edgy, I thought they played edgy. At half-time, I thought if we could come out and score, at 2-1 the pressure would be on them. Even at 3-1 with 10 minutes to go, they weren’t exactly full of confidence.” Steven Naismith exploited poor defending to add a third in the 53rd minute, with Bobby Zamora’s first goal of the season in the 80th minute never threatening to change the result. The victory ended a four-game winless run for Everton, and it was the untested midfield partnership of Barkley and Muhamed Besic that earned Martinez’s praise. The Toffees boss said: “We had to cope with having four central midfielders missing and, in any squad, that’s going to be a real test. “Probably this allowed Ross Barkley and Mo Besic to have a partnership that in training looked very strong. They’re young players but, the way they performed today, the future these two players have is immense. “Ross Barkley, I thought it was a real joy to see him. The way he scored the first goal, he’s the one that started the move, he gets through the line of the QPR midfield and then the way he finishes from outside the box is quite exceptional. “He deserves that outcome because of the work he’s put in in training, the way he shows his personality to get on the ball, to want to create, his performance was very impressive. “It’s a really important victory for us. It’s important to get momentum, it’s important to get confidence, and you can only get that by having good results. I thought it was a well deserved good result.” The sour note came in stoppage time when Jordon Mutch chopped down Mirallas, trapping the Belgian’s ankle. Roberto Martinez hailed the performance of Ross Barkley in Everton’s 3-1 victory over QPR but was left frustrated by a late injury to Kevin Mirallas.last_img read more

Osaka suffers WTA Finals injury heartbreak for second year running

first_imgJAPANESE sensation Naomi Osaka vowed to be fit and firing for her Australian Open title defence after her season was abruptly cut short by injury at the WTA Finals on Tuesday.The two-time Grand Slam winner, who was on a hot streak of 11 matches, withdrew from the season finale with a shoulder problem — the second straight year she has been forced out due to injury.Third-ranked Osaka, who retired during last year’s edition of the lucrative year-ender with a hamstring injury, had been due to play world number one Ashleigh Barty later on Tuesday.Her place in Red Group will be taken by world number 10 Kiki Bertens, who will now face Australia’s Barty in Shenzhen.The 23-year-old Osaka said she was unsure of the severity of the injury to her right shoulder, which she initially hurt during her triumph in Beijing earlier this month.“I felt it immediately (in her first match on Sunday),” she told reporters. “When I woke up the day after it was throbbing.“It’s just a little bit painful. I don’t think it’s something that I would immediately need surgery for,” she added.Osaka had started the $14 million round-robin tournament with a tough three-set victory over Petra Kvitova on Sunday to extend her winning streak, after titles in Beijing and Osaka.She had been determined to make amends for a disappointing WTA Finals debut last year, when her winless campaign ended with a tearful retirement against Bertens.“I thought I was playing well. I definitely wanted to win here,” Osaka said.Once she recovers from the injury, Osaka’s attention will turn towards the Australian Open in January, where she will defend a Grand Slam title for only the second occasion.“I just want to train really hard,” Osaka said. “Last year during the off-season, I trained really hard for Australia. I felt like going into the Slam I was really fit. I just want to try to duplicate that.”Even though it ended prematurely, Osaka was pleased with her back end to the season after a tough stretch where she suffered a stunning first-round exit at Wimbledon followed by a lacklustre US Open title defence.She rated 2019, which started on a high in Melbourne, as a more pleasing season than last year, when she made her Grand Slam breakthrough by beating Serena Williams in a tempestuous final at Flushing Meadows.“(Losing at Wimbledon) was the lowest emotional feeling I’ve ever felt,” she said. “After the US Open, I set goals. I was able to win tournaments. That was definitely the highlight.“I definitely think that this year was somehow better (than last year),” she added. (AFPlast_img read more
