Antonio Conte ranks Premier League triumph in career

Should Chelsea win this match, they'll have won 42 points away from home in the Premier League this season (the most) and it'll be the highest tally of away points by a side in a PL season since Manchester United won 42 in 2011-12. They recovered with interim boss Guus Hiddink in charge, eventually finishing in tenth place, and their rise has continued this season under Antonio Conte , who has all-but led the club to the title in his first season as manager.

Chelsea not that far ahead, says Liverpool boss Klopp

Speaking to Yellow Sport ahead of Liverpool's visit to the London Stadium, Stephenson said: "I'm sure many Hammers supporters are asking the same question". It makes a difference. Surely the club need to be targeting younger, fresher talent, as opposed to bringing in older players, likely on big wages, who are potentially past their prime? It is not that easy, I would say.

Celtics Clean Up Errors, Use Collective Effort To Win Game 5

The Celtics bigs outplayed the Wizards bigs and though Marcin Gortat still grabbed 11 boards, he was ineffective for much of the game. The home team has won each game in the series.

Top NBA prospect Lonzo Ball reveals signature shoe for the family's brand

Even if money wasn't an object, how much, honestly, is reasonable for a pair of basketball shoes? However, I do understand spending maybe more than you should for something you really want, even if you don't really need it. It costs Nike about $45 to manufacture and ship that shoe. If you're not an athlete where half a grand is nothing to you, you're probably not buying the ZO2s (nor should you). Read More

Foot problems kept Watkins out of eight games last season and compromised his effectiveness when he did return to the lineup in the second half of the 2016 campaign.

Next step for Predators: Getting beyond second round

Next step for Predators: Getting beyond second round

Do the Predators have everybody's attention now? I don't think the Blackhawks necessarily suffered from a lack of effort, but there was definitely a lack of energy that made them mortal. Timeliness also had a significant impact. Younger players like Ryan Hartman , Tanner Kero, Nick Schmaltz and Artemi Panarin didn't find the back of the net against the Predators, but now with that experience, they will hopefully be able to come through when the playoffs roll around next spring.
