Premier League: Man City held to frustrating draw by Southampton despite VAR reprieve | Football News – Times of India

MANCHESTER: Manchester City were held to a frustrating goalless draw at home by Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday, despite being handed a reprieve when a VAR review led to a penalty and a red card for Kyle Walker both being overturned. After an uneventful first half where City were well below par, Southampton thought they had been handed a golden chance to edge in front early in the second period as they were awarded a penalty for a foul on Adam Armstrong. To make matters worse for City, Walker was sent off for the foul, only for referee Jon Moss, following a VAR intervention, to overturn both the red card and the awarding of the spot kick. Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden were both summoned from the bench as City pressed for a winner, which they thought they had grabbed at th...

Sadio Mane: Ton-up for Sadio Mane as Liverpool down Crystal Palace 3-0 | Football News – Times of India

LIVERPOOL: Liverpool forward Sadio Mane scored his 100th goal for the club to help secure a 3-0 victory over lively Crystal Palace in the Premier League at Anfield on Saturday. Mane turned the ball in from close range just before halftime as he claimed a Premier League record for the most consecutive goals against one club - his ninth in a row versus Palace. He has 10 in all competitions against the London club. Mo Salah and Naby Keita, with a superb volley, added late strikes to give the scoreline an emphatic look after the home fans had earlier been left aghast over forward Diogo Jota's early contender for miss of the season. Liverpool provisionally move top of the table with 13 points from their opening five matches, though they have played a game more than most of their title rivals...

burnley: Odegaard curler gives Arsenal win at Burnley in Premier League | Football News – Times of India

BURNLEY (England): Martin Odegaard's 30th-minute free kick earned Arsenal their second win of the Premier League season with a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday. The Norwegian midfielder curled the ball beautifully into the top corner of Nick Pope's goal, helping take Mikel Arteta's side on to six points. The Gunners had lost their opening three games of the season but broke that poor run with a win over Norwich City last week and they will now head into next week's North London derby with Tottenham with some confidence. Thomas Partey made his first start of the season for Arsenal and the Ghanaian's presence, behind Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe, resulted in a more balanced look to Arteta's midfield. Nicolas Pepe had the first chance of the game after good work from Kier...

We have nothing to lose: David Hussey | Cricket News – Times of India

KOLKATA: The path ahead for Kolkata Knight Riders is not easy as they languish at the seventh position on the points table before the resumption of IPL phase II in UAE on Sunday. In spite of finding them in a position where they need to win almost all their remaining seven matches, KKR chief mentor David Hussey is still hopeful of putting up a challenge. "Our goal remains the same and that is to qualify for the final," he was quoted as saying in a pre-tournament interaction with the franchise media team on Saturday. However, he too accepted that it will require much work to achieve that. "We have to start winning and there’s nothing to lose," he stated. The Australian is looking to take confidence from history when in 2014, the team went on to win nine matches in a row to claim the titl...

Tokyo Olympics vindicates FIH’s special treatment of Indian hockey

In 2013, after the sport narrowly dodged an Olympic-sized snub, a desperate International Hockey Federation (FIH) immediately turned towards India for help – and to help. Eight years later, both are smiling – for India, the performances of the men’s and women’s teams at the Tokyo Olympics could be the springboard for future success; for the FIH, it could potentially be a turning point financially, or so they hope. And hockey, which almost got dropped from the Tokyo Olympics, may well have secured its spot in future Games. “There is far more attention on hockey now in India. And that is good for international hockey, good for the FIH,” the world body’s chief executive Thierry Weil says. Back in 2013, the mood in India and the world wasn’t so optimistic.

La Liga: Atletico held at home by Bilbao, Falcao nets in Rayo Vallecano debut

Ten-man Atlético Madrid was held to a second straight scoreless draw at home on Saturday after its talented attack was again stymied by Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish league. With Antoine Griezmann joining Luis Suárez, Ángel Correa, Yannick Carrasco and João Félix, coach Diego Simeone has his deepest well of attacking talent to draw on since taking over the team a decade ago. But the defensive-minded Argentine has so far failed to get his attack to click. Atlético was also held to 0-0 by Porto at home in their Champions League opener on Wednesday, and Atlético has not scored more than two goals in any of its six games across all competitions this season. Midfielder Marcos Llorente went closest for Atlético when his 75th-minute shot from outside the area hit the post. Simeone’s thoughts...

Pakistan battling isolation as cricket host after New Zealand pull out | Cricket News – Times of India

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan cricket began confronting its worst fear Saturday, with the national side staring at another era of isolation from hosting international matches after New Zealand abandoned its tour, citing a security threat. The Blackcaps called off their first Pakistan series in 18 years with Wellington's backing on Friday just before the first one-day international was due to start in Rawalpindi. The decision has left cricket-crazy Pakistan reeling, with the nation still recovering from the 2009 militant attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore that wounded six players. Already struggling to convince foreign teams to tour, Pakistan were forced to play home matches at neutral venues -- primarily in the UAE -- following the assault. The decision left a generation of cricket fans grow...
