Liverpool miss penalty in scoreless draw with Southampton


Manager Jurgen Klopp complained a dry Anfield pitch made things hard for their playing style in Sunday's goalless Premier League draw , but Milner was in no doubt where the blame lay and, as senior professional, shouldered the burden.

"I don't know if he went early or not but he is a big lad and he has seen me take a lot of penalties when we have been taking them with England at the Euros". Read More »

Cubs head to Colorado after falling in record-setting marathon against Yankees


Severino would've been the story of the game... if not for an abysmal ninth inning from closer Aroldis Chapman . The 48 combined strikeouts by both teams is also a new single-game major-league record. Tyler Clippard came on in relief of Chapman, and was followed by Adam Warren, Holder and Shreve. Perhaps the most impressive part of this team is that they are seemingly never out of any ballgame, no matter the situation or the deficit. Read More »

Hayward averaged 23.7 points in the seven-game victory over the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, shooting 47.7 from the field.

Antonio Conte sends message to Chelsea fans about the Champions League

It is a question of when, rather than if the ebullient, effervescent Conte claims the title in his first season in England - and Chelsea will be fully deserved champions.
