Wenger loses cool as Chelsea win

first_img Wenger refused to take a backwards step in the 20th minute after leaving his technical area following Gary Cahill’s tackle from behind on Alexis Sanchez. Mourinho told the Frenchman to “back off” as their rivalry endured another ugly episode, with the Gunners boss firmly planting two hands on the Portuguese’s chest – risking Football Association disciplinary action – and the pair also eye-balling each other in close quarters. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger shoved Jose Mourinho as their long-running feud turned physical in a 2-0 win which saw Chelsea take a five-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League. The major flashpoint of the match occurred when Cahill slid in recklessly on Sanchez to the left of the Chelsea dugout. Wenger, this week celebrating his 18th anniversary at the Arsenal helm, strode towards the incident, walking across the Chelsea technical area as he made his objections. Mourinho reminded his adversary he was in his territory, telling the Frenchman to retreat to his own designated space, only for the Gunners boss to object and place his hands on Mourinho’s chest. Fourth official Jonathan Moss intervened not once but twice, the second time after the managers had exchanged views almost nose to nose. Moss explained the events to referee Martin Atkinson, who had booked Cahill, and then left the managers in no doubt that their behaviour would not be tolerated. There was further cause for alarm on the touchline when Courtois required attention after his head had been caught as Sanchez chased a Jack Wilshere through ball. The Belgium goalkeeper played on before needing further treatment, with Mourinho encroaching on to the field to alert Atkinson. Cech came on, determined to seize his chance after being relegated to the substitutes’ bench this term following a decade in the first team. It was Cech’s 480th Chelsea appearance, just his second as a replacement. Hazard was the catalyst for the on-field action igniting when he burst past Santi Cazorla and Chambers and into the area. Koscielny stuck out a leg and tripped Hazard, who tucked in the penalty himself. The visitors were fortunate not to have Chambers sent off for two bookable offences before the interval. Chambers had tripped Hazard to earn his yellow card and he then hauled down Andre Schurrle on the edge of the area, but avoided further sanction. Cazorla flashed a shot wide from Sanchez’s pass as Arsenal failed to test Cech early in the second half before Szczesny twice mis-hit clearances and was relieved to see the first bounce to a man in red off Costa. Szczesny’s reflexes saved Arsenal after Hazard beat Chambers and crossed. Flamini turned the ball towards his own goal, with Szczesny palming the ball on to the post. Wilshere’s pleas for a handball against Fabregas were rejected and Chambers blasted over as Arsenal tried to find an equaliser, with Chelsea playing largely on the counter-attack. Costa teed-up Hazard, who clipped the ball over, but the Blues had their second when Fabregas lifted his pass over the Arsenal defence for the Spain striker to run on to it. Costa, playing his third game in nine days despite his fragile hamstrings, won the race for the ball and flicked it over the on-rushing Szczesny to seal victory. There was still time for Danny Welbeck to be booked for a reckless foul on Fabregas and Costa’s blushes to be spared by the offside flag as he missed an open goal in a comfortable Chelsea win. Sanchez had earlier clattered Thibaut Courtois in the head in challenging for the ball, with the goalkeeper playing on for a short time before departing the stadium for precautionary tests. Petr Cech was on the field when Chelsea took the lead through an Eden Hazard penalty awarded after the Belgian slalomed through two challenges before being felled by Laurent Koscielny as the Arsenal defence failed to follow Wenger’s combative example. Calum Chambers might have been sent off for two bookable offences in the first half and Wojciech Szczesny made a fine save to prevent Mathieu Flamini from turning the ball into his own net as Arsenal survived two scares in a feisty contest. Cesc Fabregas might have conceded a penalty for handball before the former Arsenal captain played a beautifully flighted pass to allow Diego Costa to net his ninth Premier League goal of the season. Although Arsenal showed more steel than in March’s 6-0 capitulation in Wenger’s 1,000th match in charge, it means the Frenchman is still to taste victory over a Chelsea side managed by Mourinho after 12 attempts. Mourinho on Friday refused to apologise for in February labelling Wenger “a specialist in failure” and their latest contretemps will have soured the relationship further. The Chelsea boss will barely care as his side took a commanding advantage over second-placed Manchester City into the international break after dropping just two points in the opening seven games. There was a 15-minute delay to the scheduled 1405BST kick-off between the two remaining unbeaten teams in the top flight after a flare was lit on the approach to the visiting end.

Europa League: Man United beat Partizan Belgrade to end winless away run

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer says his Manchester United side need to “try to build momentum” after Anthony Martial’s penalty secured their first away win since March at Partizan Belgrade.It ensured United moved top of their Europa League group and will qualify for the knockout stages if they beat Partizan in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford on 7 November.“We need to win away from home in the league, but another clean sheet and that gives you a platform to win games from,” said Solskjaer, whose team last won a Premier League away game in February at Crystal Palace.Martial, making his first start since August, sent Vladimir Stojkovic the wrong way from 12 yards after United’s 19-year-old defender Brandon Williams won the spot-kick.Williams’ burst forward to draw a foul from Nemanja Miletic was one of the the few bright spots in an otherwise uninspiring United display.It helped Solskjaer’s team to their first win away from home in 11 attempts with their only shot on target.Williams and 18-year-old midfielder James Garner were among seven changes made by United’s Norwegian boss from the side that started in the Premier League against Liverpool on Sunday.And initially at least, United controlled possession, with Scott McTominay wastefully heading Juan Mata’s free-kick wide and Jesse Lingard’s curling effort striking the right-hand post.However, the hosts carved out chances of their own with on-loan Roma forward Umar Sadiq bending a 20-yard strike against the post.United keeper Sergio Romero superbly preserved the visitors’ lead by parrying Seydouba Soumah’s drive after the midfielder cut past Harry Maguire, as Solskjaer’s side hung on to record their first win on their travels since their Champions League victory over Paris St-Germain.

Lakers considering Kyle Kuzma for possible sixth man role

first_imgDALLAS — It worked for Manu Ginobili and Jamal Crawford. It works for Lou Williams.Could Kyle Kuzma make his presence felt as a high-scoring sixth man?It’s something the Lakers are looking at as Kuzma ramps his minutes back up. On Friday night for his return from injury, the Lakers were most concerned about getting him adjusted and keeping him under 20 minutes. But long-term, as they figure out rotations, coming off the bench could become Kuzma’s regular role.Coach Frank Vogel didn’t want to lock himself into that idea, however. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs The biggest barrier Kuzma might face is his learning curve on defense.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions “Well the first thing is cohesiveness with his teammates, and obviously executing the scheme that we put in defensively with pick-and-roll coverages, with pindown coverages, the way we wanna switch, how we’re bringing help to the post,” Vogel said. “All those types of things are Basketball 101, you have to use your instincts, but each coach has a slightly different slant to all those elements of your defense. So all those things you have to learn, and with new teammates, that’s something he’s gonna have to learn, too.”DAVIS PUSHING THROUGH SHOULDER SORENESSThe Lakers faced at least a little uncertainty on Tuesday night that the soreness in Anthony Davis’ right shoulder might have kept him sidelined for that game. Friday night had no such drama, with Davis cleared to play long before tip-off, but the Lakers still took steps to keep him feeling good.Davis did not participate in the live session in Thursday’s practice in El Segundo, a precaution to help him recover. He told the media Friday afternoon at shootaround that the pain was lingering, but he wasn’t too worried.“It’s still a little sore, but I’m fine. Obviously it’s going to be like four or five days rest to let it all the way heal, just like any injury. But I want to play, so as long as I keep playing it’s going to always be a little soreness there.”center_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“Sometimes it makes sense to have a guy coming off the bench filling that role, and sometimes it doesn’t,” he said. “Sometimes it makes more sense to put him in the starting lineup. I don’t know the answer to that. It depends on each group. I have to see everybody play with each other, but there’s definitely value to that.”The thing Vogel likes, and something the Lakers have struggled with as they stagger All-Stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, is keeping an elite scorer in the game midway through each half.As Kuzma gets gradually worked into the rotation, Vogel won’t change his strategy with Davis and James: Davis generally plays the whole first quarter, and James generally checks in at the start of the second after three to four minutes of rest (with the pattern repeating each half).“Hopefully as Kyle gets comfortable and we get Rajon (Rondo) back, we can see some lineups where both of those guys are being rested together and we can see them playing together, which is a positive too. One of the negatives of staggering (James and Davis) is they have less minutes together.”The Lakers also got some looks with James, Davis and Kuzma in the same lineup, something all of them have suggested could be more frequent as the season goes on.last_img read more
