Lampard bemoans Chelsea’s injury crisis ahead of FA Cup tie against Liverpool

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Lampard: Tomori won’t leave Chelsea Anjorin: I’ll fight for shirt in Chelsea except there’s a tempting loan offer Chelsea’s progress has been severely dented this season due to a number of injury setbacks, manager Frank Lampard said on Monday. Lampard said several senior players would be unavailable for Tuesday’s FA Cup fifth round clash with Liverpool as a result of this. Players such as influential midfielder N’Golo Kante have had a stop-start campaign while others like Antonio Rudiger have either returned from injury recently or been sidelined like winger Christian Pulisic. Lampard told reporters when asked why Chelsea have struggled: “There were a few (injuries) overlapping from last year, which were huge: N’Golo Kante, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Antonio Rudiger. “It’s been an issue and now we have another bulk. “There are no fresh returns from the injury list. “Andreas Christensen has got a small issue, which we are going to give another 24 hours, but probably puts him in out of the game. “Other than that we have no Tammy Abraham, no Pulisic, no Hudson-Odoi and no Kante.” Abraham, who is the club’s leading goal scorer this season with 15 goals in all competitions, suffered an ankle injury, with Lampard having no update on his return to the side. “(Abraham) went to Barcelona to get another set of eyes on it,” Lampard added. “He came back relatively positive. “Unfortunately, he’s a bit unwell at the moment. So, he’s been off for a couple of days with a bit of a bug. There’s no update, no idea when he’ll be back. “Christian has had a big phase out and is desperate to get back. When (they can return) I’m not giving an answer… I can’t see the answer. “I’m hoping they might be fit over the next week or two, I just can’t say it with clarity.” English Premier League leaders Liverpool lost their first league game of the season at Watford over the weekend. Even though Lampard believes it proved they were vulnerable, he said they have still had an “incredible season”. “They’ve become relatively human. But it’s one game,” Lampard said. “They’re a strong team and they’ve been out on their own this season. “We will have to be at our best. I don’t mind playing midweek. The FA Cup is a huge competition. Evening games bring a different atmosphere and playing Liverpool is always big for us.” Reuters/NAN.Tags: Andreas ChristensenAntonio RudigerCallum Hudson-OdoiFrank LampardN’Golo Kantelast_img read more

Officials Charge 57 with Rioting, Looting Felonies at Tampa Protests

first_imgProsecutors in the Tampa area have charged 57 people with rioting and looting that occurred just after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody sparked nationwide protests, officials announced on Friday.Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren said in a statement that charges have been filed against dozens of people for allegedly ransacking stores, causing destruction and fighting with police officers in Tampa. The riots began on the night of May 30, less than a week after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota on Memorial Day.“These 57 people should not be confused with the large number of peaceful protesters in our community,” Warren said. “The defendants we’ve charged took advantage of the pain in our community and tried to turn it into a quick buck or set out to cause chaos. None of us will stand for that.”While most of the alleged offenses occurred more than a month ago, Warren explained that filing charges take time because prosecutors need to fully review all of the evidence for each case.The Hillsborough State Attorney’s Office has declined to prosecute peaceful protesters, although Warren added that the 57 people accused of felony crimes could face anywhere from five years to life in prison.The businesses that were affected include jewelry stores, clothing stores and convenience stores.last_img read more

Superlatives from Syracuse’s 73-53 win over Miami

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 24, 2019 at 9:58 pm Contact Charlie: [email protected] | @charliedisturcocenter_img Since Syracuse’s upset of then-No. 1 Duke, a once-stagnant offense has broken out. The Orange’s hot shooting continued on Thursday night, as the team shot 49.1 percent from the field and 46.7 percent from beyond the arc. Elijah Hughes’ 22 points and six 3s led the way for Syracuse (14-5, 5-1 Atlantic Coast), which blew out Miami (9-9, 1-5) inside the Carrier Dome, 73-53. The Orange have won three straight and remain tied atop the conference standings.Here are the superlatives from the dominating victory.Big Moment: Paschal Chukwu’s block and Jim Larrañaga’s technicalWith just under 12 minutes remaining in the game, Ebuka Izundu went up with a layup. The ball was swatted away by Paschal Chukwu. UM players pleaded for a goaltending call but didn’t get one. Seconds later, Hurricanes head coach Jim Larrañaga, made his way to the court, screaming and throwing his arms in the air.He was quickly charged with a technical foul by the referee, and Tyus Battle made both free throws on the opposite end. The Orange, already on an 8-2 run, used the technical free throws to push the lead to double digits and pull away.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textStud: Elijah HughesA Miami player corralled a Marek Dolezaj missed shot and threw a lead pass to Zach Johnson running up the court. He caught the ball and rose up against Elijah Hughes, who met him at the rim and blocked the ball. The following possession, — after Hughes nabbed the defensive rebound — Dolezaj found Hughes on the left wing. He nailed it as the Carrier Dome crowd erupted. Head coach Jim Boeheim gave him a slap on the butt.Hughes could not miss on Thursday night, dropping 22 points with six 3s on 66.7 percent shooting from deep. Hughes was extremely active on the defensive end, too, adding three blocks and three steals.Dud: Oshae BrissettOnce again, Oshae Brissett struggled creating offense inside the paint. Drives that gave him open looks came up short. Jumpers rimmed out. Outside of his and-1 finish midway through the first half, Brissett struggled mightily. The sophomore forward finished with just seven points on 25 percent shooting. On a day where Syracuse’s offense had been on fire, Brissett was anything but.Highlight: Tyus Battle’s passingFresh off his third ACC Player of the Week award, Tyus Battle did not score a single point in the first half. While he missed all three shots in that frame, the junior tied a career-high with six assists. He even found Buddy Boeheim for 3 multiple times while manning the point as Frank Howard sat.While Battle found offensive success in the second half — scoring 10 points — his passing stood out and helped create offense for a hot-shooting Syracuse squad. He finished with nine assists. The highest single-game total by any player this season came in just more than 21 minutes.Lowlight: ReboundingIt was expected that Syracuse, the nation’s tallest team, would have no trouble out-rebounding Miami on Thursday. The Hurricanes are the 238th tallest team and have notoriously struggled on the boards. Yet, Miami doubled the Orange in first-half rebounds, grabbing eight on the offensive glass in the process. The Hurricanes finished the game with 39 rebounds to the Orange’s 28. Paschal Chukwu registered double-digit rebounds in back-to-back games but ended with just four rebounds on Thursday night.Early in the first half, Elijah Hughes and Oshae Brissett both blocked a pair of Miami shots into the stands. A long 3 before the shot clock expired came up short, but the Hurricanes grabbed the offensive rebound and scored a 3 seconds later. Second-chance points kept Miami close the entire game, as the Hurricanes outscored the Orange in that department, 19-6.last_img read more

Germany to play Netherlands despite Paris attacks

first_imgGermany’s friendly against the Netherlands on Tuesday will go ahead as planned, despite the German team still being shaken by the deadly attacks in Paris, the world champions said on Sunday.Germany were playing France in Paris on Friday as a wave of attacks was unleashed across the city, killing 129 people.”The message is clear. We will not be intimidated by terror,” said interim German FA chief Reinhard Rauball in a statement, following a meeting to decide whether the game in Hanover would go ahead.”For the team to play against the Dutch only a few days after the terrible experiences in Paris is a necessary signal.”The Germany players and staff had spent Friday night holed up inside the stadium before leaving straight for the airport on Saturday morning.”The entire team, players coaches and staff are still shocked,” team manager Oliver Bierhoff said in the statement. “But we all know how important it is to send a signal as a national team in favour of our values and culture.” Lower Saxony minister for sport Boris Pistorius said every precaution would be taken by security staff to ensure it was a peaceful event where families, who bought tickets weeks ago, could feel comfortable.”I welcome the decision by the DFB to play the game after discussions with Lower Saxony security officials. There are no reasons that would force us to cancel the game,” Pistorius said in a statement.”We also want to send a signal that these cowardly terrorists cannot run our lives.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
