Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi failed to score on a day Liverpool edged closer to their first league title in 30 years but were frustrated by an obdurate Everton in a 0-0 derby draw at Goodison Park. Jurgen Klopp left Mohamed Salah unused on the bench and his team need four more points to become champions, although that equation will change if Manchester City fail to beat Burnley on Monday. An early error from Fabinho let Richarlison loose to flash a shot across the face of Alisson’s goal. Takumi Minamino dispossessed Andre Gomes in the 34th minute, allowing Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane to tee up Roberto Firmino, with Brazil forward pulling wastefully wide. They still came closest to breaking the deadlock 10 minutes from time, though, as Tom Davies hit the post after Alisson had kept out Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s clever flick. The Toffees are now winless in 19 Premier League matches against their local rivals, although that statistic did not appear to weigh upon Carlo Ancelotti’s approach as his side offered scant attacking threat. Loading… Everton centre-back Michael Keane, booked for an earlier foul on Mane, produced a vital block to thwart Minamino before half-time, by which point Liverpool had lost James Milner to a hamstring injury and sent on Joe Gomez. Firmino’s clever chested lay-off saw Naby Keita volley wide in the 51st minute, with Everton attacks having more or less disappeared from view. It made Richarlison’s shank into the Gwladys Street End with Virgil van Dijk breathing down his neck all the more frustrating. Trent Alexander-Arnold had a 63rd-minute free-kick deflected over before Joel Matip joined Milner on the injury list. In the context of a dour contest, Everton launched a stirring late rally, Davies agonisingly close to snatching glory and Alisson frustrating his compatriot Richarlison once more after Calvert-Lewin sent a diving header wide. Not that they will mind at all, but Liverpool could still end next week without being crowned Premier League champions. When they are, their success should be remembered in the context of what came before the coronavirus pandemic. This soulless encounter was very much at odds with the finest moments Klopp has crafted on Merseyside. It might only be one win in 15 attempts now, but Seamus Coleman is still an Everton player who knows what it feels like to beat Liverpool. The experienced captain led by example at right-back, with two inch-perfect challenges on Gomez and Mane early in the second half crucial when it came to preserving parity. read also:Boastful Iwobi insists Everton capable of defeating Liverpool Klopp said the extended training period before the Premier League restart had been useful for January recruit Minamino. A surprise inclusion ahead of Salah, who is still short of match fitness, the former Salzburg forward showed some nice touches and enjoyed a couple of half-chances, but the opportunity to make a statement passed him by. A stunning title triumph may still be completed when Liverpool host Crystal Palace on Wednesday, with Everton on the road at the bottom club Norwich City. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享

People with criminal convictions sometimes have problems in securing a visa for the United States. Tiote was given a seven-month jail sentence suspended for 18 months and 180 hours community service in October 2013 after admitting possession of a fake driving licence. Then Newcastle players Joey Barton and Nile Ranger, who both had criminal convictions, were refused entry during the summer of 2011, as was Yohan Cabaye, although the Frenchman’s issue was an unpaid dentist’s bill. Meanwhile, McClaren has also confirmed that fellow midfielder Sylvain Marveaux will miss the start of the new season after undergoing surgery to repair a hernia. He said: “He is in for a hernia operation, if not he’s had it already. It’s four to six weeks, I think.” New signing Georginio Wijnaldum is due to join his team-mates on the other side of the Atlantic on Wednesday after completing his move to St James’ Park from PSV Eindhoven on Saturday. The Ivory Coast international was not among the party which jetted out to America at the weekend and head coach Steve McClaren has since confirmed he did not travel because of an administrative issue. McClaren told the Chronicle: “He has had visa complications and trying to get him over the visa issue has been difficult, but it wasn’t successful. He is training back home.” Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tiote is training back on Tyneside after being refused a visa to join the rest of the squad in the United States. Press Association
Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 21, 2011 at 12:00 pm CLEVELAND — After Syracuse’s disappointing early exit from the NCAA Tournament following a 66-62 loss to Marquette, both junior point guard Scoop Jardine and forward Kris Joseph hinted at returns for their respective senior seasons.Joseph popped up as a possible first-round pick during the season. He led the Orange in scoring at 14.3 points per game. But in the locker room after SU’s crushing loss in the third round of the NCAA Tournament, Joseph said he was already looking toward next season.‘Work hard, be a senior leader,’ Joseph said when asked what he needed to do during the offseason moving forward to his final season at Syracuse. ‘Lead these guys, just like Rick (Jackson) did. … I’m looking forward to next year’s season already.’And amid questions concerning his crucial mistakes at the end of Sunday’s contest, Jardine perked up when asked about next season.‘We should be good next year,’ he said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAssuming they do stick around, Jardine and Joseph will be joined by a loaded supporting cast bolstered by the addition of a heralded freshman class. Sophomore center DaShonte Riley will also return after missing the season and redshirting with an injury similar to a stress fracture in his right foot.At the end of last season, SU lost arguably its three top players in Wes Johnson, Arinze Onuaku and Andy Rautins. This season, the Orange looks to only lose its lone senior in Jackson.Something Jardine also expects to be key is the development of a strong 2010-11 freshman class made up of Dion Waiters, C.J. Fair, Fab Melo and Baye Moussa Keita. After Waiters’ 18-point performance Sunday against Marquette, that’s something his cousin thinks could happen on a regular basis.‘He’s got so many things offensively that you just can’t teach,’ Jardine said. ‘He’s great off the dribble. … He’s going to definitely be great with another year in him to get stronger, to get better and to get mentally better.’Big East left with only two teams in TournamentPerplexed, Buzz Williams searched for a reason why only two of a record 11 Big East teams remain after the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. To him, every one of those teams was deserving of a Tournament bid.‘We’ve won four of our last five, and on Monday we still won’t be ranked,’ Williams said Sunday after his Marquette team defeated Syracuse. ‘I think that it does speak to the depth of our league.’Further confirming the league’s depth is the fact that the two teams that do remain from the Big East finished ninth (Connecticut) and 10th (Marquette), respectively, in the regular-season standings.But Sunday, when No. 3-seeded Syracuse and No. 2-seeded Notre Dame each fell to lower seeds, much like Pittsburgh and Louisville did in the days previous, questions about the league’s strength were legitimized.Though the league has underachieved in the tournament, six Big East teams finished the regular season ranked inside the Top 25. In the league’s postseason tournament, not even the two top seeds made it to the championship game.‘I mean,’ Williams said, ‘in sticking up for our league, I think that it’s suggestive. If we were the last team in — which I think is hard to argue that we weren’t — for us to be one of the three still remaining, it speaks to the depth of our league and the talent depth of our league.’Even after this weekend’s upsets, some outside the league were still refuting the fact that the Big East was overrated or that it shouldn’t have had 11 teams in the field.To Williams, it doesn’t matter that just two Big East teams remain when evaluating the strength of the league. To him, the only thing that matters is what those 11 teams did during the entire season.‘I think over a period of time is how you can tell how good teams are,’ Williams said. ‘And I think the resume of those 11 institutions speak for themselves over the course of from Christmas to Spring Break.’email@example.com@syr.edu
Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 17, 2011 at 12:00 pm Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor sent out the following letter regarding the allegations against men’s basketball associate head coach Bernie Fine just before 6:30 a.m. on Friday: Dear Students, Faculty & Staff, Last night, we were contacted by an ESPN television reporter regarding allegations dating back to the 1980’s and 1990’s that Associate Head Men’s Basketball Coach Bernie Fine had engaged in inappropriate behavior with a minor, now 39. Following the terrible news that came out of Penn State in the last several weeks, this is clearly distressing to all of us in the Syracuse University community. The news is already being covered widely by the media. I want to tell you what we know and what we are doing about it. First, as has been announced, Bernie Fine has been placed on administrative leave pending a new investigation by the Syracuse Police Department. He has vehemently denied the allegations and should be accorded a fair opportunity to defend himself against these accusations.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text As we have communicated publicly in response to media inquiries, in 2005, Syracuse University was contacted by an adult male who asserted that he had reported allegations in 2005 of abuse in the 1980’s and 1990’s to the police. That same individual told us that the Syracuse City Police had declined to pursue the matter because the statute of limitations had expired. On hearing of the allegations, the University immediately launched its own comprehensive investigation through its legal counsel. The nearly four-month-long investigation included a number of interviews with people the individual said would support his claims. All of those identified by him denied any knowledge of wrongful conduct by the associate coach. At the end of the investigation, as we were unable to find any corroboration of the allegations, the case was closed. Had any evidence or corroboration of earlier allegations surfaced — even if the Police had declined to pursue the matter — we would have acted. As of last night, we became aware that the Syracuse Police have determined to open an investigation, and we will cooperate to the fullest extent with their review of the matter. Let me be clear. We know that many question whether or not a university in today’s world can shine a harsh light on its athletics programs. We are aware that many wonder if university administrations are willing to turn a blind eye to wrongdoing that may disrupt a successful sports program. I can assure you I am not, and my fellow administrators are not. We hold everyone in our community to high standards and we don’t tolerate illegal, abusive or unethical behavior — no matter who you are. As you know, this week, I affirmed Syracuse University’s steadfast belief that all of us have the responsibility, individually and collectively, to ensure that Syracuse University remains a safe place for every campus community member and everyone with whom we interact on a daily basis on campus or in the community as part of our learning, scholarship, or work. We do not tolerate abuse. The dilemma in any situation like this, of course, is that—without corroborating facts, witnesses or confessions — one must avoid an unfair rush to judgment. We have all seen terrible injustices done to the innocent accused of heinous crimes. And we’ve all seen situations where the guilty avoid justice. At this time, all we really know is that a terrible tragedy is unfolding for both the accuser and the accused. I want you to know that we will do everything in our power to find the truth, and — if and when we do find it — to let you know what we have found. Sincerely, Nancy Cantor
