12/10/2017 06:57 PM Three Stars of the 175th Manchester Derby The Manchester Derby did not disappoint in terms of tackles, entertainment, and drama, with the match in the balance for 90 minutes despite Manchester City’s advantage in play. While Paul Pogba‘s absence was notable on one side, there was no shortage of stars at Old Trafford on Sunday (and a few duds as well, Messrs Delph and Lukaku).

12/09/2017 06:44 PM Gulati denies endorsing or having a preferred candidate in USSF presidential race Sunil Gulati won't be running for re-election as U.S. Soccer president, and on Saturday insisted he has not chosen someone to endorse in the race among a growing field of candidates.

"I haven't endorsed anybody and I haven't said I have a preferred candidate," Gulati said.
12/09/2017 10:26 PM Vonn injured, Gut crashes at St Moritz By Brian Homewood ST MORITZ, Switzerland (Reuters) - American Lindsey Vonn sustained an injury during the World Cup super-G race in St Moritz on Saturday as Switzerland's Lara Gut crashed halfway down the course. Vonn, four-times overall World Cup champion and the finest woman skier of her generation, fell to the ground grimacing as she slowed down after the finishing line and she staggered away with what appeared to be either a hip or back injury. With two months to go before the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, Vonn said on Twitter that she had "an acute facet (spinal joint) dysfunction" but said she might still compete in Sunday's race which is another Super G. "I got compressed on the sixth gate and my back seized up.

12/10/2017 12:39 AM Bradley: “Dream became obsession” in pursuit of MLS Cup 2017 was, to put it lightly and intentionally avoid re-litigating the multitude of failures put forth by the U.S. national team, a turbulent year for Toronto FC and USMNT captain Michael Bradley. The was, of course, the national team’s failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup — we’re acknowledging it, but not delving any deeper right now — which has surely consumed his mind for the majority of the last two months, but before Oct. 10 came 10 full months of remembering and brooding over TFC’s 2016 MLS Cup defeat at the hands of the Seattle Sounders. On Saturday, the Bradley-led Reds avenged last year’s heartbreak in storybook fashion — lifting MLS Cup after beating those same Sounders right back at the scene of last year’s torment, the friendly but raucous confines of BMO Field.

12/09/2017 05:21 PM Harry Kane: Tottenham “on fire” after big win v. Stoke Harry Kane got back on track on Saturday as he scored twice in Tottenham’s emphatic 5-1 home win against Stoke City. Kane took his tally to 19 for the season for Spurs in all competitions and the Englishman also missed a glorious chance in the first half which would’ve seen him score his seventh Tottenham hat trick of 2017. Speaking to the BBC after the game, Kane revealed that Spurs are flying high ahead of a busy festive season which sees them host Brighton on Wednesday and then head to Manchester City.

12/10/2017 08:36 PM Derby win boosts Man City's chances to emulate Arsenal's 'Invincibles' It was at Manchester United that Arsenal's "Invincibles" came closest to suffering the defeat that would have denied them a place in history. Early in the 2003-04 season and long before anybody was even suggesting Arsene Wenger's team could go through the season unbeaten, a 0-0 draw became infamous for what happened at the end of the 90 minutes, with both sets of players clashing in the so-called "Battle of Old Trafford" following Ruud van Nistelrooy's missed penalty in the 90th minute. Had the United striker scored, Arsenal would have lost and the gold Premier League trophy that sits proudly in the boardroom at the Emirates Stadium would never have been made. Perhaps Manchester City will go on to emulate those achievements this season, but we are still waiting for their unbeaten run to be tested as Arsenal's was 14 years ago.
12/10/2017 10:00 AM North Korea Soccer Team Takes On Rivals Despite Sanctions Despite UN Security Council sanctions, North Korea’s soccer team were allowed to travel to Tokyo for matches against Japan, South Korea, and China. The sanctions in place over Pyongyang’s weapons program mean that North Koreans aren’t allowed to travel to Japan, but North Korea’s soccer team was given an exemption. The matches are part of the East Asian Cup, or as it is officially called, the EAFF E-1 Football Championship. It’s not officially part of the FIFA calendar, so European-based players like South Korea’s Son Heung-min and Japan’s Shinji Okazaki aren’t at the tournament. North Korea played Japan in their first match, and had some great chances to win the game, the best falling to Pak

12/10/2017 12:00 PM Soccer Stadiums Are the New Football Stadiums Officials from Cincinnati, Detroit, Nashville, and Sacramento appeared in New York on Wednesday to place their bids with Major League Soccer (MLS) for an expansion team. Slots for two teams are now up for grabs in the league’s plans to expand, so cities are lining up to lob promises of tax incentives for stadium construction at the MLS. Cincinnati, for example, has secured $200 million in private funds to build a stadium for FC Cincinnati, and the city has pledged up to $75 million in public money to pay for the infrastructure associated with a stadium. Nashville promises $25 million in tax dollars toward build-out costs for a $275 million Nashville Soccer Club stadium, which would be paid for
12/11/2017 10:56 AM Africa's shocking shortage of talent at Europe's elite clubs in focus Africa provides a steady stream of footballers to the European game, but a shocking statistic reveals that only a handful are competing at the very highest level on the continent. At the top 10 clubs in Europe, according to the current UEFA co-efficient rankings, there is a total of only eight players from the African continent in their first-team squads this season. Beyond that, only a few are playing with any regularity, a statistic that may well need to change if African nations are ever to hope to truly compete on the international stage. In this feature, KweséESPN breaks down who those eight players among Europe's top teams are: 10. CHELSEA (ENGLAND) African players (2): Victor Moses (Nigeria),
12/09/2017 05:41 PM What's wrong with Conte and Chelsea? LONDON, England -- Chelsea's title race is already over, according to Antonio Conte after Chelsea's surprise 1-0 defeat to West Ham United on Saturday afternoon. In fact, he continued, it never really started. "This is the fourth defeat this season in 16 games," said Conte. "When you have this start, it's impossible to think you are in the title race. From experience, if you want to stay in the title race, in the first part of the season you can lose only once or twice." It was an understandable concession. Chelsea are 11 points behind Manchester City ahead of tomorrow's Manchester derby, and more to the point, they're not playing well enough to suggest they might overturn that deficit. But in
12/09/2017 07:03 PM Bayern Munich's Jupp Heynckes hails Arturo Vidal after Frankfurt win FRANKFURT -- Jupp Heynckes paid tribute to a revitalised Arturo Vidal's match-winning performance as Bayern Munich moved eight points clear at the top of the Bundesliga with a scrappy 1-0 victory at Eintracht Frankfurt. Vidal has scored in four successive Bundesliga games since Heynckes criticised his fitness levels last month. The Chile international headed in the only goal of the game on Saturday after 20 minutes -- nodding home an exquisite Joshua Kimmich cross at the far post. "It's to Arturo's credit," Heynckes said at a postmatch news conference. "He has played many outstanding games for Bayern in the last few years, but has been a little out of sorts recently. The player has to make the
12/09/2017 02:54 PM Arsenal's Shkodran Mustafi out of Southampton clash with injury Shkodran Mustafi will miss Arsenal's trip to Southampton on Sunday as the defender has not recovered from a thigh injury, Press Association Sport reports. The Germany international was forced off early on in last weekend's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United and will sit out the game at St Mary's. Mustafi, who made a mistake to allow Jesse Lingard to put United 2-0 ahead inside the opening 11 minutes at the Emirates Stadium, had been enjoying arguably his strongest spell in the Arsenal side since joining from Valencia in the summer of 2016. The 25-year-old has looked more secure in the three-man defence Arsene Wenger has largely fielded since towards the end of last season "It is a possibility,''

12/11/2017 08:00 AM Is Lukaku justifying £75m price tag at Man Utd? Premier League legend Shearer suggests not Romelu Lukaku is “not doing enough” at Manchester United and failing to justify his £75 million price tag, says Alan Shearer. The Belgian appeared to be money well spent for the Red Devils when he burst out of the blocks with 11 goals in his opening 10 games. Lukaku has, however, managed just two efforts in his last 14 outings and endured a nightmare showing in the derby with Manchester City on Sunday as he made two costly errors defensively and spurned a glorious opportunity to snatch a point for Jose Mourinho’s men.

The Belgium international goalkeeper remains secured to the Blues until 2019 but is yet to agree to fresh terms at Stamford Bridge. Speculation regarding his future has been sparked as a result, with Courtois doing little to curb the rumours with updates on discussions and an admission that he intends to return to Spain at some stage.
12/10/2017 10:30 PM Tired Chelsea switching focus to top-four Premier League finish, says Conte There are six top teams and there are only four places for the Champions League and two places for the Europa League," Conte said after the 1-0 defeat. "You have targets, Also, if Manchester City has many points over you, you have an important target to try to get into the top four and play in the Champions League. "Don’t forget, two years ago Chelsea missed this target, last season we didn’t play European games. Our priority is to play the league.
