Chelsea hammer struggling Stoke City 5-0

first_img0Shares0000Antonio Rudiger opened the scoring with just three minutes on the clock before Danny Drinkwater thundered in a second for his first goal for the club. Photo/COURTESYLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 30 – Chelsea demonstrated the yawning chasm in squad depth that exists in the Premier League with a 5-0 canter past Stoke City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.While both sides rotated their squads after a hectic series of fixtures, Chelsea maintained their quality on the pitch in a scintillating opening half-hour, racing into a 3-0 lead and effectively winning the match through goals from Antonio Rudiger, Danny Drinkwater and Pedro. A late Willian penalty and a fine individual effort from Davide Zappacosta completed the scoring in a game that had long since ceased to be a contest.By contrast, Stoke’s team selection suggested manager Mark Hughes was prioritising Monday’s New Year’s Day game at home to fellow strugglers Newcastle United.Teenage full-backs Tom Edwards and Josh Tymon both started while influential midfielders Joe Allen and Xherdan Shaqiri were named as substitutes.It took just two minutes and 35 seconds for Stoke’s makeshift side to be exposed. Willian sent over a long, looping free-kick to the far post where Rudiger rose to head powerfully home.It was 2-0 after eight minutes.This time Stoke did manage to clear a set piece, a corner on this occasion, only to see the ball drop to Drinkwater just outside the area.A touch to control and a swish of his right boot later and the ball was flying into the top corner, leaving Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland helpless.A third goal seemed inevitable and it arrived after 23 minutes.Willian slipped the ball to Pedro who allowed it to drift across his body, wrongfooting Tymon in the process, before striking it low into the corner of Butland’s net.At this point, it appeared that the record Premier League victory -– Manchester United’s 9-0 win over Ipswich in 1995 -– could possibly be eclipsed.Instead Chelsea’s intensity dropped.This gave Charlie Adam more time in midfield. The Scot used it wisely, floating a delightful ball into the path of Mame Biram Diouf, who used his upper arm to control it before he slotted his shot under the body of Thibaut Courtois. The goal was rightly disallowed.Stoke then fashioned another opportunity in the opening minutes of the second half.However, Saido Berahino’s understandable lack of confidence having not scored since February 2016 saw him shoot tamely at Courtois.Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s thoughts were already turning towards Wednesday’s London derby trip to Arsenal. The Italian removed Victor Moses, N’Golo Kante and Alvaro Morata by the 71st minute.Two minutes later, Chelsea had their fourth goal. Willian, who was clearly bundled over by Geoff Cameron in the area, sent Butland the wrong way with his penalty.With the game nearing its conclusion, Zappacosta chose the moment to score his first Premier League goal, collecting the ball on the right, cutting inside and driving a low shot past Butland.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Michael Jordan Give Me Kobe Bryant Over LeBron James

Michael Jordan said if he had his druthers, he would take Kobe Bryant over LeBron James.During an interview with NBA-TV, Jordan acknowledged James’ current dominance of the NBA. But for Jordan, winning is the ultimate measure of a great player’s greatness, and Bryant’s five rings with the Los Angeles Lakers trump James’ single title earned last June.“Five beats one every time I look at it,” Jordan said. “And not that (James) won’t get five. He may get more than that, but five is bigger than one.”The debate between Bryant and James is a heated one that both sides argue with great passion. Jordan, widely considered the greatest player of all time, said it would not be an easy decision. Clearly, he admires the talent of both perennial all-stars.But Bryant’s body of work in 17 seasons – including an NBA record 16 straight All-Star game appearances – was the determining factor. James, in his 10th season, finally reached the basketball summit with the NBA Finals victory over Oklahoma City.James recently set a record with six straight games of at least 30 points on 60 percent shooting. His team is playing better than any others in the league, and James has never performed better.“It doesn’t matter to me,” James said on Thursday about Jordan’s comments. “If you take Kobe one and I go second, it doesn’t matter. I don’t get too involved in what guys say about me, or if you take Kobe or if you take LeBron. As long as I’m on the floor and I make plays for my teammates, I don’t do what I do for other people’s approval.”Jordan, who turns 50 years old on Sunday, won six championships with the Chicago Bulls, six NBA Finals MVPs and five league MVPs. read more

Ohio State soccer owns OT beats Penn State

The thought of sudden-death overtime in a soccer match would seem an uninviting proposition to some, but not the Ohio State men’s soccer team. OSU claimed its third overtime victory of the season Sunday afternoon after defeating Penn State on Senior Day at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. After 90 minutes of scoreless action, the Buckeyes needed just less than six minutes in overtime to defeat the Nittany Lions, 1-0, and improve their Big Ten record to 3-1-0. “The dream of being Big Ten champions is still alive,” said head coach John Bluem. “We knew what we needed to do, and it was the last opportunity to get a result here at home for the seniors.” Senior forward Parnell Hegngi stole the ball from a Penn State defender and passed it ahead to a sprinting junior midfielder Austin McAnena. “At first I saw (Hegngi) right when he stole it; it was a great steal,” McAnena said. “Then I saw kind of a little lane I could run to so I just go at it full speed. He played me a nice ball.” McAnena took the pass and shot the ball towards PSU goalkeeper, freshman Andrew Wolverton. The freshman misplayed the shot as the ball went through his hands and rolled across the goal line for the Buckeye victory. “I hit it a little off,” McAnena said. “I thought the keeper had it at first so I was kind of a little hesitant. Then all of the sudden I just kept seeing it go and from there I was just really stoked.” The goal came in front of the student section on the south side of the stadium and the players immediately began celebrating the victory with fans. On Sept. 25, the Buckeyes defeated Michigan in front of the newly added student section in overtime. Hegngi said it was a “good vibe” to score in front of the fans. “It was great,” Hegngi said. “It was just like (against) Michigan. It was good to go celebrate with them right away.” Ohio State has played in four overtime contests this season with a record of 3-0-1 in those contests. They defeated Bowling Green on Oct. 5 and tied Valparaiso last Sunday. “We’ve had a couple overtime games and come out with two wins out of them recently,” McAnena said. “I was just glad we could get the victory.” Despite the victory, OSU was outplayed in a couple major categories. Penn State outshot OSU 19-11 for the contest and also held an advantage on corner kicks 10-3. Junior goalkeeper Matt Lampson finished the contest with six saves. “I think we were outplayed through some stretches of the game, but a good counter-attack at the end and a nice goal, so we walk away (with the win),” Bluem said. The team cannot celebrate for long though as a Wednesday road contest against Oakland University awaits it. Two games against conference games will follow as the Buckeyes travel to Wisconsin next Sunday and Indiana on Nov. 5 to finish their regular season. “If we want to make the NCAA tournament, we have to believe that there is an outside chance that we can still get there,” Bluem said. The Buckeyes (8-5-2) will kick-off their game against Oakland at 7 p.m. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball ready to open Big Ten play against No

OSU junior defensive specialist Valeria León (3) prepares to hit the ball during a game against Florida State on Sept. 6 at St. John Arena. OSU won 3-1. Credit: Courtesy of OSUSomething will have to give when the No. 12 Ohio State women’s volleyball team begins Big Ten play on Wednesday.OSU (11-1), currently in a stretch of 11 wins in a row, is set to host No. 21 Minnesota (8-2) at St. John Arena on Wednesday at 7 p.m. After losses to Texas A&M and Stanford to begin the season, Minnesota has won its last eight matches and hasn’t lost a set in its last seven.OSU coach Geoff Carlston said when the Golden Gophers stay in their system, they are one of the best teams in the country, and winning the serving and passing game will be crucial in order for his team to come out on top.“If they’re comfortable, if we’re kind of playing to their strengths in terms of tempo and blocking, they’re going to be good,” Carlston said. “We need to cover the ball because they’re going to get some blocks. We’ve got to get in there and give ourselves second and third chances.”The Golden Gophers have been strong on both sides of the net so far this season, ranking 10th in the country in blocks per set (2.94) and 13th in hitting percentage (.283). They are led by senior outside hitter Daly Santana, who is currently second in the conference with 4.59 kills per set, and junior middle blocker Paige Tapp, a preseason all-Big Ten selection whose 1.32 blocks per set rank fifth in the conference.OSU sophomore outside hitter Luisa Schirmer said the competitive nature of the Big Ten has her excited for conference play to begin.“There’s always a change in the atmosphere once we get into Big Ten play just because we get ranked against each other and we’re kind of out for each other’s heads,” Schirmer said.Although the Buckeyes are in the midst of a lengthy winning streak, senior middle blocker Tyler Richardson said that team is taking things day-by-day and keeping its focus on the future.“That’s in the past, that’s preseason,” Richardson said. “Now it’s Big Ten, it’s time to really focus and get down to business.”Randall returnsFor the first time in nearly a year, junior outside hitter Kylie Randall appeared in a match last weekend, picking up two kills in OSU’s win over Eastern Illinois.Randall hadn’t played since Sept. 28 of last season due to torn ligaments in her left ankle.After a long road to recovery, Randall said she was happy to be back on the court.“I was just really excited to be with the girls,” she said. “I’ve been practicing throughout the summer and beginning of this preseason. Obviously it’s a lot different than last year’s team, and I’m just really excited for the future.”Carlston said it was nice to see Randall be able to “shake off the cobwebs” and that he expects her to play a key role down the stretch for the Buckeyes.“This Big Ten season is pretty long and grueling and so she’ll definitely be a piece of the puzzle moving forward,” Carlston said.Previous matchupsOSU is 34-40 all-time against Minnesota but has fared well at home, going 20-13. The two teams split a pair of five-set matches last season, with each team winning on their home courts.What’s next?Another matchup with a top-20 team awaits the Buckeyes on Sunday, as they’re set to take on No. 16 Wisconsin — which knocked OSU from the NCAA tournament last season — at St. John Arena at 2 p.m. read more

Mens Hockey No 6 Ohio State hoping to use home ice to

Ohio State sophomore forward Tanner Laczynski controlls the puck during a 4-0 loss to Penn State on Dec. 2. Credit: Nick Hudak | For the LanternThe No. 6 Ohio State men’s hockey team made it a goal to earn home ice throughout the Big Ten tournament and reach the championship game for the first time since 2014.With a different format than in the past, this year’s tournament allows the higher seeds to host their games at respective home arenas, which gave the Buckeyes a vision of playoff hockey at the Schottenstein Center early in the campaign.“We’ve talked about it all year starting in August when the team got here that we are playing for home ice this year in the playoffs,” junior forward Brendon Kearney said. “The different format was a big deal for us just to be able to stay in Columbus.”The second-seeded Buckeyes will open the Big Ten tournament at home with a best-of-three series against seventh-seeded Michigan State in the first round. The Buckeyes will not take the Spartans lightly given the result of the teams’ most recent meeting, a 6-3 Michigan State win. Michigan State, the lowest seed in the tournament, used a heavy forecheck to pin the Buckeyes in their own zone. The strategy forced turnovers and pucks piled into the back of their net. Ohio State head coach Steve Rohlik said multiple areas need improvement to ensure a different outcome.“Puck management, number one. I talk about that a lot. We turned the puck over a lot. If they are going to play that style and come down, we just got to make plays,” Rohlik said. “We got to take care of the puck, we got to support the puck. I think that’s the key against this team, and that’s the approach we are taking.”Michigan State has one of the conference’s most talented top lines, which has even earned a nickname of the “KHL line.” Sophomore forwards Patrick Khodorenko and Taro Hirose and freshman forward Mitchell Lewandowski accounted for 42 of the Spartans’ 86 goals this season.Rohlik said Ohio State will not abandon the defensive style that is allowing just the third-fewest goals-against per game in the country (2.06 goals) in order to shut down the Spartans.  “We just got to take care of ourselves. Five-man defense, whoever’s out there, it doesn’t change. We got to stay connected,” Rohlik said. “I talk about this all year, it’s not just our goaltender or defense. We got to play solid five-man defense.”Ohio State could face some daunting opponents in the ensuing rounds if it gets past Michigan State. No team would be more daunting than Notre Dame in a potential Big Ten championship game, but the preceding rounds will not be easy, given the depth of the conference. Five Big Ten teams appeared in the regular season’s final USCHO top-20 poll. “It’s that time of year, and our league speaks for itself,” Rohlik said. “I think anybody could beat anybody on any given night.”With back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time in 15 years, there is a sense of confidence that Ohio State has emerged as one of the conference’s top programs and will compete for a Big Ten championship beyond just this year.“It’s about our culture. You go out there and expect to win every night you play. It’s not going to happen. We understand that, but I think that’s the attitude that our guys have,” Rohlik said. “Credit to the 27 guys in the locker room, it’s great for the program, but certainly we’ve got a long way to go. We’re not satisfied with where we are at.”Ohio State’s opening game of the tournament against Michigan State will begin at 7 p.m. Friday and the second game will start at 7 p.m. Saturday. If necessary, the third game of the series would commence at 7 p.m. Sunday. All games will be at the Schottenstein Center. read more
