Premier League Manchester City still just on course for Champions League

The club has failed to win the league since the 2012/13 season while Liverpool's winless stretch in the top flight is even worse. While there has been no surprises with the teams chosen, it is the ranking that could raise same eyebrow.

Who won the London Marathon 2017? Results, prize money and more

However, the Ethiopian did make some ground up as the Kenyan slowed, but just as she had Keitany in her sights, Dibaba started to feel her stomach and came to a halt briefly. That was the best that I've felt in a London Marathon . Robert Hiscocks (above) will run the marathon after hearing about the millions of people that the poverty charity Turn2us supports each year, and has raised more than £1,500 so far. Read More

Mercedes: Hamilton v Bottas yet to run hot

The triple world champion's vehicle finally cooled down in the closing stages, though he crossed the line a distant fourth, a whopping 36s down on race-winner Bottas. I thought they (the Mercedes drivers) were in the opposite positions. I was asking - I was not sure because it was a bit confusing for me after the pitstops. Read More

But while the pick of Garrett was expected, the Browns caused some head scratching by passing on a chance to select Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson at No. The Browns finished 31st defensively in 2016, 30th in points allowed and 29th in sacks per pass play.

José Mourinho Needs To Win The Europa League He Once Disdained

Arsene has just refused to accept Mourinho's suggestion that on Sunday Manchester United could be weakened versus Arsenal by simply prioritizing their Europa League semi-final with the Spanish team Celta Vigo. "I'm backing Arsenal for a big 3-0 win and before Manchester United fans go ballistic I'm only backing that result because of my theory". "It's very important because it's a trophy that United haven't won and it's another route into the next Champions League". Read More

LeBron passes Abdul-Jabbar for No. 2 on playoff scoring list

That's the crappiest part about it. "It's frustrating. Now I have to wait to Friday night to redeem myself". "They played well, we shake their hand". "Yes, that would have been helpful", DeRozan said. But if they plan on stealing one back home, they ought to start warming up before the Warriors bust out the broom and dust pan. Of bigger concern might be the status of guard Kyle Lowry, who sprained his left ankle in the third quarter. Read More

Wizards steal the show to go up 3-2

Washington committed slightly more turnovers, but the difference was only two. Lowry had 12 for Toronto, which led 57-48 at halftime. They emerged victorious, 111-101. Taurean Prince has played well in the starting lineup this postseason, and he does not look like a rookie out on the court. Instead of rolling over and allowing the Hawks to continue their streak, Washington's core stepped up and showed their worth, especially in the second half. Read More

Clippers' Blake Griffin has surgery on right big toe

Can they get in a game? I'm also a little anxious about rust when it comes to Golden State, as missing over a week can lead to sluggish play. After Gobert picked up his second foul just three minutes into the game, Favors took the floor as the key to Utah's playoff hopes-and he responded with one of his strongest games of the season.

LeBron scores 39, Cavaliers rout Raptors 125-103 in Game 2

Irving was a mess in Game 3 previous year, going 3-of-19 in a 15-point defeat. James was at his dominant best all night - whipping the ball around the court to trigger the Cavs slick ball movement. "No, we can't", Casey said. "All I know is I can prepare my guys, I can prepare myself". "At the end of the day, we're all human". It's not like he's not working to do it. Read More
