RelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Liverpool vs. Everton Venue:Anfield Stadium Kick off: 5:01PMLiverpool will look to replicate their astonishing Premier League form in the FA Cup when they meet local rivals Everton in the third round this afternoon. 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
A small plane that crashed in a Boynton Beach neighborhood last month, killing the pilot, probably left Lantana Airport with almost no fuel, according to a preliminary report.According to the National Transportation Safety Board’s initial report, which was posted Wednesday morning, the single-engine plane’s two fuel tanks, one on each wing, were both ruptured from the impact, but contained “no evidence of residual fuel.” In addition, the crash site had no smell of fuel and no browned grass.Moreover, the valve that switches between tanks “was devoid of fuel,” as was the engine-driven fuel pump.The March 6 crash of the two-seat Grumman American AA-5 killed 67-year-old John Pardillo, of Miami. His aircraft went into a backyard at Dos Lagos, a gated community near Congress Avenue and Miner Road.The National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) interim report states the two-seater was in the air for only 20 minutes.The plane struck a 18-foot-tall palm tree, slicing it at about 5 feet up, before coming to a stop against a fence about 30 feet from the back wall of the home.FAA records show the plane’s registration had expired on Sept. 30 of last year. The report said Pardillo, the pilot, held a valid certificate and had accumulated 350 hours of flying, with about 249 hours of that in single-engine planes.
