Manchester City 1-4 Liverpool: Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho run riot at the Etihad

first_img Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho celebrating Liverpool’s third goal Liverpool humbled Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium as Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino ran riot on Saturday evening.The first goal came after only seven minutes through an own goal by Eliaquim Mangala before Coutinho doubled the lead 13 minutes later.The Reds were 3-0 up after 30 minutes as Firmino scored before Sergio Aguero scored a stunner before half time.Martin Skrtel powered in the final goal with 10 minutes remaining on an evening where Liverpool could conceivably have scored eight or nine.The win leaves Liverpool six points adrift of the Champions League places, while Manchester City drop down to third.Liverpool broke the deadlock after only seven minutes when Coutinho robbed Bacary Sagna of the ball on City’s right before Firmino sent in a low cross which was clumsily turned past Joe Hart by Mangala as he tried to sort out his feet.Manchester City’s defensive frailties in the absence of Vincent Kompany were highlighted again for the second goal as Firmino took advantage of Mangala’s indecision to run into the box before delivering a low pass across goal for Coutinho to stroke home.Jurgen Klopp’s high intensity pressing tactic when playing away from home had City like rabbits in a headlight as Coutinho skilfully chipped the ball over the dreadful Mangala and linked with Firmino who volleyed just wide of Hart’s far post.  For as bad as Mangala had been, Liverpool’s Brazilian attacking duo of Coutinho and Firmino had been every bit as brilliant as they combined again for Liverpool’s third.Emre Can produced a lovely backheel to set Coutinho free in the box, before the Brazilian squared to his fellow countryman Firmino to knock the ball into an empty net.Liverpool looked like they would score with every attack but Sergio Aguero, so often the hero for City, gave Manuel Pellegrini’s side a lifeline on the stroke of half time as he ran at the Reds defence before curling in a beautiful right-footed shot past Simon Mignolet from 25 yards.Manchester City replaced Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas with Fernandinho and Fabian Delph at the break and were far more competitive with energy levels similar to those exhibited by Liverpool in the first half.In a scrappy second half, it took a moment of genius from Adam Lallana to carve out the first clear-cut chance as the Englishman cleverly dummied Coutinho’s pass but Hart saved well at Firmino’s feet.City’s best chance came through Raheem Sterling who latched on to a poor backpass from James Milner but the former Red took the ball too wide before setting up Aguero who saw his shot stopped by fantastically Mignolet.Liverpool’s fourth goal was a thunderbolt of a volley by Skrtel after confusion from the corner, six years to the day the defender scored his first for the Reds, also against Manchester City.The result was proof of the hard work put in by Klopp and the players on the training ground as their high intensity pressing could easily have led to another four goals being scored by the Reds. 1last_img read more

Lewis probed in Cunningham case

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsThe investigation into Lewis was first reported Thursday by the Los Angeles Times. “Neither I nor any of my staff has been contacted by the Department of Justice with regard to an investigation into my congressional service,” Lewis said in a statement. “I am angered and frustrated by anonymous sources, either inside or out of the Justice Department, who would imply to journalists that an investigation has been launched when no suggestion has been made that an investigation is needed,” Lewis said. The lobbyist involved is Lewis’ longtime friend Bill Lowery, a former congressman from San Diego who served on the Appropriations Committee with Lewis before leaving Congress in 1993. Copley News Service has reported that Lewis has approved hundreds of millions of dollars in federal projects for Lowery’s clients. WASHINGTON – The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles has opened an investigation into House Appropriations Committee Chairman Jerry Lewis and his dealings with a lobbyist with connections to disgraced former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, a person familiar with the situation said Thursday. Lewis, R-Calif., denied any wrongdoing. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the investigation, said subpoenas had been issued, but could not say to whom. The investigation is related to the ongoing probe stemming from the scandal involving Cunningham, the source said. The former Republican congressman from San Diego County pleaded guilty in November to taking $2.4 million in homes, yachts and other bribes from defense contractors and others. He is serving a prison term of eight years, four months. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Volleyball Clipped By An Opportune SIU, 3-2

first_imgBox Score CARBONDALE, Ill. – The Drake University volleyball team wasn’t able to hold off Southern Illinois Saturday afternoon as the Bulldogs lost, 3-2, in Carbondale, Ill., in the Bulldogs’ next-to-last road match of the season.Drake (23-7, 12-4 MVC) dropped just its fourth Missouri Valley Conference match of the season by set scores of 25-11, 25-27, 25-11, 16-25, 13-15.The Bulldogs were led by junior Cathryn Cheek (Coppell, Texas) who had one of her best career performances putting up career-high 24 digs while matching her career-high with 21 kills. Senior Kyla Inderski (Urbandale, Iowa) added 20 kills and 17 digs for her 18th double-double of the season. Also recording a double-double was sophomore Paige Aspinwall (Dayton, Minn.) who set up 43 assists and 10 digs. Her sets allowed Inderski to hit .395 and Gillian Gergen (Janesville, Iowa) .368 while the Bulldogs hit .234 as a team.”Obviously this was a disappointing outcome,” said Drake head coach Darrin McBroom. “We played a couple of good sets, but credit to SIU. They played their best volleyball when they needed to win three sets. Overall in most of the stats, we dominated most categories, but SIU managed to perform well at the right times to get the win. Timing was the key tonight and we’re still learning what it’s like to be the favored team and the pressure that comes with that.”Despite holding Southern Illinois (6-20, 5-10 MVC) to only a .188 hitting percentage, the Salukis’ timing and resiliency forced a five-set comeback victory. Drake hit .420 in the sets it won and just .122 in the sets it lost.Both teams traded points to open the match before an 8-3 Drake run gave the Bulldogs a lead they never relinquished in the first set. The Salukis answered in the second set scoring four straight opening points. The Bulldog offense struggled to get things going as Southern Illinois took a 10-4 lead before Drake was able to close in for its first lead of the set, 13-12. In a set that featured six ties and three lead changes Southern Illinois hung on for the 27-25 victory.The Bulldogs stormed back in the fourth set, holding Southern Illinois to just a .054 hitting percentage. Drake took control early in the fifth set building to an 11-8 lead before Southern Illinois closed out the game with a 7-2 run for a 15-13 victory to take the decisive fifth set and the match, 3-2.The Bulldogs travel to face conference leader Missouri State, who remains undefeated in Valley play. The matchup is scheduled for Sunday at 2 p.m. Following the contest, Drake returns home for their final regular season game against in-state foe UNI, Saturday, Nov. 18 at 5 p.m. in the Knapp Center.Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Fishing the North Coast: High hopes for Saturday’s salmon opener

first_imgThe recreational salmon season is set to reopen this Saturday, and all the signs up and down the coast look extremely promising. The entrance, and Humboldt Bay itself, are still teeming with both sardines and anchovies. The coastline — both north and south and 2 to 3 miles in length — is also stuffed with bait. The water out front of Trinidad is holding the brown, cool water that salmon crave, and the birds are working over the big schools of bait.Salmon have also been seen swimming on the …last_img
