Celtic braced for Manchester City raiders

first_imgCeltic manager Brendan Rodgers has a goalkeeping dilemma to resolve before Manchester City turn up for their Group C Champions League match in Glasgow on Wednesday.The Scottish champions shipped seven goals at Barcelona in their opening group game and Rodgers needs the safest pair of hands he can find to keep out some of the most lethal finishers in English soccer.City have scored more than anyone in the Premier League this season, leading by four points and winning 10 out of 10 games in all competitions under new manager Pep Guardiola.Their latest victims were Swansea City, rolled aside 3-1 on Saturday with Argentina striker Sergio Aguero scoring twice.The first goals Aguero scored in English soccer were against Swansea, in 2011, when Rodgers was in charge and the manager needs no reminding of the Argentine’s talents.He may, however, have to put his faith in a man whose confidence was described only last week by former Celtic striker Chris Sutton as “shot to pieces”.Unconvincing Dutch goalkeeper Dorus De Vries was substituted at halftime due to injury in Celtic’s 6-1 Scottish Premier League win over Kilmarnock on Saturday, with Scotland international Craig Gordon the replacement.“Dorus strained his chest when he landed. He could have played on but we had Craig there fit and capable and I didn’t want to take any risk with it so we will see how Dorus is over the next couple of days,” Rodgers told reporters.The Northern Irishman said he would have no qualms about fielding Gordon against City, who beat Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 in their opening group game thanks to an Aguero hat-trick.“He’s more than capable. He’s a brilliant shot stopper, he’s improving his game with his feet all the time,” he added of a player who drew Sutton’s criticism after a high challenge in a Scottish League Cup quarter-final against Alloa.City will be a very different class of opponent to Kilmarnock, but Celtic will still feel buoyed by Saturday’s win.“It’s a great game for us. Games at home here at Celtic Park in the Champions League are really special nights,” Rodgers said.City will feel the likely loss of Belgian midfielder Kevin de Bruyne, to a hamstring injury, but they have plenty of other options with Raheem Sterling ready to relish the reunion with his former Liverpool boss.One more win would also allow Guardiola to equal his predecessor Manuel Pellegrini’s club record of 11 consecutive wins, achieved last season.Wednesday’s game is the first between the two sides in European competition, but Celtic have several ex-City players in their squad including defender Kolo Toure, Scott Sinclair and on-loan winger Patrick Roberts.“People are saying that Celtic are the weakest team of the group but, believe me, we know it’s going to be really hard because they’re a really strong team when they play at home,” City defender Pablo Zabaleta told the Mirror newspaper.“We won’t be thinking about what happened to Celtic against Barcelona.” (last_img read more

Hazard plays down incident with Malmo fan

first_imgEden Hazard downplayed the disturbing scene which saw him hugged by a pitch-invading fan at the final whistle of Chelsea’s 2-1 win at Malmo.The culprit’s grip was released only when the Belgium forward handed over his shirt and UEFA are likely to investigate.The fan, one of at least four from the home stands who encroached onto the playing surface, was escorted off by stewards, holding the shirt.Hazard appeared unnerved, but later brushed off the moment.“It’s not an incident. He just asked for my shirt,” said Hazard, who came on as a second-half substitute in Thursday night’s Europa League last-32 first leg in Sweden.Chelsea responded from their embarrassing 6-0 mauling at Manchester City, but were less than convincing and received a stark warning from head coach Maurizio Sarri afterwards.Chelsea appeared to be coasting at 2-0, through goals from Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud, but Anders Christiansen’s strike 10 minutes from time means the Blues’ progression to the last-16 is no formality.Sarri’s future remains in doubt ahead of a crucial week: Monday’s FA Cup tie with Manchester United, next Thursday’s second leg with Malmo and the February 24 Carabao Cup final with City. The Wembley date is followed by the Premier League clash with Tottenham.The 60-year-old Italian said: “If we concede a goal like this to a team like Manchester City or United or Tottenham, then you risk conceding three goals in 10 minutes. So we have to do better, I think.“We need to have continuity and consistency, I think, in the mental condition to be able to approach every match with the same level of application, determination and attention.“You know very well that, if you are in bad mental condition in England, in 10 days you can lose three or four very important matches.“So we need consistency. We have to approach every match in the same way. It’s not easy, but we have to try.”Sarri was content with the performance, which saw Chelsea’s first away goals in 2019 after losses to Arsenal, Bournemouth and at the Etihad Stadium.“I am happy because we played with a very good level of confidence,” Sarri added.“It wasn’t really very easy after the last match. But, today, we were confident because we moved the ball also inside our box.“We need to think we have to gain qualification in the next match at Stamford Bridge. We have to play because they are really very compact, very solid.”As well as the small pitch invasion, UEFA is likely to scrutinise Malmo supporters’ use of flares and the throwing of drinks over the partition between home and away fans.Malmo were playing for the first time since beating Besiktas to reach the knockout stages due to the domestic off-season during the harsh Swedish winter.Boss Uwe Rosler was pleased with his side’s performance.“We’ve not shown any respect to Chelsea, especially in the beginning of the game,” Rosler said.“Chelsea didn’t have a single chance before they scored.“I’m pleased with the way we approached the game, tactically and mentally. They showed us respect. They brought (N’Golo) Kante and Hazard on. There’s a reason for that.”The late goal has given Malmo a chance of an upset.Rosler added: “The odds were against us in the beginning, and are again now. But we rewarded ourselves for the way we played.”last_img read more

DeMarcus Cousins injures left quadriceps early in Game 2

(AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)OAKLAND, California — Starting Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins’ postseason could be in jeopardy after he injured his left quadriceps muscle in the first quarter of Monday night’s 135-131 Game 2 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the playoffs.“There’s a pretty significant quad injury,” coach Steve Kerr said. “We’ll get an MRI tomorrow. But he’s going to be out for, I’ll just say a while because I think it’s not clear right now how long he’ll be out. It’s significant.”ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Tim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’ Last summer, Cousins came to the Warriors seeking a chance, even though he was working back from the season-ending surgery after injuring the Achilles while with New Orleans. Cousins joined the two-time defending champions for $5.3 million, a low-risk move for Golden State general manager Bob Myers that worked out well for everyone.“We’ll miss his low-post dominance, of course. We’ll miss his screen-setting, his energy out there,” Thompson said. “I’m hoping for a speedy recovery because we really need him if we want to make this run.”Kevon Looney filled in and scored a career-high 19 points making all six of his shots. Looney will be called upon to fill the void along with recently signed center Andrew Bogut, who rejoined the Warriors for another run and to provide depth down low for this exact scenario.The Warriors locker room was more subdued than usual.“It’s tough for sure, you feel for him considering all he’s been in this last year,” Stephen Curry said of Cousins. “This is a big stage, the playoffs. He’s been looking forward to this. I don’t know the extent of the injury at this point but hope he gets back sooner than later. But just man to man in terms of him and what he’s been through, it’s tough. There’s no sugarcoating it.

RB couple ordered to muzzle dogs, get insurance

first_imgIt labeled both dogs – Jack, described as part-pit bull, part-shepherd; and Cher, a Labrador-border collie mix – “potentially dangerous,” and spelled out 10 conditions for the couple to keep them. The city of Redondo Beach held a hearing Monday in response to complaints that one or both dogs had killed at least three pet cats along Avenue D. Former City Attorney Jerry Goddard, representing Redondo Beach as a consultant, presented Widman with documents dating to April 2004, when animal control authorities first reported that a dog at the Haueters’ address had attacked a cat. Resident Raoul Rodriquez described watching both animals tear apart his 12-year-old feline, Toes, after they got loose in June. “It kind of puts (Haueter) on notice that he can’t just let his dogs out anymore,” Rodriquez said. By Kristin S. Agostoni STAFF WRITER A hearing officer umpiring a dispute over two Redondo Beach dogs has decided both canines pose a significant public safety threat, and that their owners must purchase liability insurance, pay special fees and muzzle the animals during walks. Lance Widman, a Hermosa Beach school trustee who runs a South Bay dispute resolution service, issued his four-page ruling Thursday concerning the animals owned by Chris and Melissa Haueter. At the hearing in City Council chambers, Chris Haueter was apologetic and didn’t dispute the fact that his pit bull-shepherd mix had killed other animals, including backyard possums and squirrels. Although both of his dogs were subject to the hearing and Widman’s subsequent ruling, Jack was blamed for most of the incidents. Haueter told Widman the canine’s hunting instinct had taken over, but that he would never harm humans. “We will do our best to comply with the recommendations,” he said Thursday, adding that he didn’t want to give up either animal. “Anyone is welcome to come meet my dogs,” he said. But Melissa Haueter questioned how the couple would be able to live up to the order, which mandates that they secure $100,000 in liability insurance, plus pay the city $500 per year per dog in “dangerous animal” fees. “It doesn’t look promising that we’re going to be able to be insured with any animal that’s labeled as potentially dangerous,” she said. “I don’t know what we’re going to do.” And even though she admitted Jack had a hunting instinct, she questioned why their female Labrador-border collie mix – described as one-tenth pit bull – was also subject to the order. “How do they say that Cher applies?” she asked. “What did Cher do?” In weighing the testimony this week, Widman said he was convinced that both animals engaged in previous acts that posed a public safety threat in the community. The ruling also forces the couple to “securely contain” the animals on their property, whether it be by building a fence or kennel or leaving them inside a garage, Widman said. The dogs must wear muzzles when walked on leashes. Assistant City Attorney Cheryl Park, who advised Widman throughout the administrative hearing, said the Haueters have the option of appealing the decision in Los Angeles Superior Court. The ordeal in Redondo Beach follows two other recent dog scares in the South Bay. Early last week, a pit bull mauled a Torrance mail carrier, and last Friday a pair of others terrorized two Gardena children who were out walking their Jack Russell terriers. The children escaped injury, although a neighbor broke her leg while running from the dogs and a police car crashed en route to the scene. kristin.agostoni@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
