Jurgen Klopp’s men are cruising at the top of the table, while the Toffees are enjoying a resurgence of form under new boss Carlo Ancelotti. Thursday’s 2-0 victory over Sheffield United handed Liverpool the incredible record of going a full calendar year without losing a game in the Premier League. The result leaves the Merseyside club 13 points ahead of closest challengers Leicester City with a game in hand, leading many to believe that the title is already destined for Anfield. However, while Liverpool’s resurgence in the league and in Europe has been remarkable, such success has not replicated itself in the FA Cup during the Klopp era. Since the 2015-16 campaign, Liverpool have not gone beyond the fourth round, exiting the competition at that stage on three occasions and losing to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round last term. Having not won the accolade since 2006, supporters will hope that their team places greater emphasis on going deeper in this competition – starting with a tantalising meeting with their biggest rivals under the lights today. For Everton, it was their last visit to Anfield in December – a 5-2 defeat – that put the nail in the coffin for former manager Marco Silva, who was sacked soon after. Since then, however, the Toffees have discovered a sense of rhythm that seemed to elude Silva and his players from the moment the 2019-20 campaign kicked off. Following a galvanising victory over Chelsea under caretaker boss Darren Ferguson, the club secured the services of Champions League winner Ancelotti in what must be viewed as a masterful piece of recruitment. The Italian has exerted an immediate impact, recording a pair of dominant victories over Burnley and Newcastle United ahead of performing impressively during a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad. Indeed, Ancelotti will point to the organisation and energy of that performance as a blueprint for how Everton must negotiate the trip to Anfield this weekend. Liverpool possible XI: Adrian, Hoever, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Salah, Firmino, Elliot. Everton possible XI: Pickford, Sidibe, Holgate, Keane, Digne, Davies, Sigurdsson, Walcott, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Kean.Tags: Carlo AncelottiFA CupJurgen KloppLiverpool
The country is on lockdown until at least May 7, but government officials have spoken in positive terms about a potential return for football if the virus is under control.– ‘No football for months’ –Germany’s sports ministers have said the Bundesliga could return next month but Dutch football chiefs have called an end to the Eredivisie season and the Belgian campaign is in the balance.French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said football would not return in his country until at least September.In the Premier League, full training is reportedly slated for mid-May, with the plan to be discussed at a meeting of stakeholders on Friday.However, Neville is concerned that the Premier League’s desire to conclude the campaign is being driven by financial motives, with the English top flight facing a huge hit if the 92 remaining fixtures are not played.The former England international said if it were a non-economic decision there would be no football for months but he acknowledged that players at lower levels would want to play because the alternative was “bad”.“(A total of) 1,400 players are out of contract in three months so they’ll need football to resume so their livelihoods can continue,” he said.“There’s huge economic loss. It clouds people’s minds in terms of the risk that they’re willing to take.”Share on: WhatsApp Gary Neville fears Premier League players will be put at risk if matches resumeLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Gary Neville fears Premier League players’ lives will be put at risk if football is rushed back too soon after the coronavirus-enforced lockdown in Britain.Premier League chiefs are aiming for a return to action in June and several clubs opened their training grounds to players this week as they work on “Project Restart”.The English top flight is understood to be aiming to run a huge testing operation to keep footballers safe, with reports of 26,000 tests being lined up for players and staff.But FIFA’s medical chief Michel D’Hooghe said on Tuesday that football should not be played until September and former Manchester United defender Neville is worried that Premier League stars will be put in danger by the rush to return.“The FIFA medical officer said that football should not take place before September. I think if it was a non-economic decision there would be no football for months,” Neville told the Sky Sports Football Show on Wednesday.“People are now assessing risk. How many people have to die playing football in the Premier League before it becomes unpalatable? One? One player? One member of staff goes into intensive care? What risk do we have to take? The discussion is purely economic.”Neville voiced his particular concerns over the risk to players with existing medical conditions.“If health comes first, there is only one outcome at this moment in time. How many players have got asthma? How many players have diabetes?“Have they assessed all of these things and are they willing to put those people at risk?”The UK is among the worst-hit countries in the global COVID-19 pandemic, with more than 21,000 deaths so far.
Palm Beach County School Superintendent Donald Fennoy spoke out Wednesday afternoon about the former Spanish River High School principal who made controversial comments about the Holocaust.Fennoy recommends that William Latson’s district contract not be renewed. That statement came after an email Latson sent to a parent surfaced, in which he reportedly wrote, “I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee.”According to the district, Latson made a “grave error in judgement.”Latson says that his words were misconstrued.Upon being removed from his position on Tuesday, he wrote to school staff members, “I have been reassigned to the district office due to a statement that was not accurately relayed to the newspaper by one of our parents.” In addition, “It is unfortunate that someone can make a false statement and do so anonymously and it holds credibility, but that is the world we live in.”Click here to watch Fennoy’s full video statement.Will Former Boca Principal Lose his Job Today Over Holocaust Controversy?
19 Feb 2014 Golf club research gets underway All golf clubs in the country have been invited to take part in biennial England Golf research which will help to grow the game.The 2014 Golf Club Membership Questionnaire has been sent to all clubs in England and the results will provide a picture of what is happening within the sport, as well as highlighting trends, key themes and examples of best practice.It will help support the forthcoming England Golf Strategic Plan, which sets out to inspire people of all ages to make golf a part of their life and aims to reverse the trend of declining club membership.The research is being carried out by SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC on behalf of England Golf. The biennial questionnaire can be completed online, or returned by post, and all clubs which submit their response by 31 March 2014 will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three Apple iPad minis.A national results booklet, collating all the data, will be produced later in the year, together with individual county breakdowns.Richard Flint, England Golf’s Club Services and Development Director, commented: “The results of this survey will help us support golf clubs in the most effective way and to ensure that any future resources and programmes that are developed focus on creating a healthy and successful sport.”Since the first survey was distributed in 2002 the research has helped England Golf to identify significant changes and challenges facing clubs and to direct finances and resources.For example, the 2012 survey identified golf clubs which had experienced an increase in membership in the previous two years, despite an overall drop nationwide. As a result, England Golf commissioned SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC to research the successful methods adopted by these clubs and to share best practice.The results showed that all the clubs placed emphasis on flexible membership packages, friendliness and low-cost opportunities to get into golf.
