Tottenham eye surprise move for Liverpool star: This could benefit Jurgen Klopp

The Mirror reports Sturridge is unhappy with his current situation and fellow English clubs - with West Ham and Stoke mentioned - have been made aware of his situation on Merseyside. On a person level though this doesn't suffice, but he's far too good to move to either West Ham or Stoke. The 27-year-old finds himself down the pecking order at Liverpool this season and there are rumours that he could be offloaded by Jurgen Klopp , either in January or in the summer. Read More

Egypt 2 Ghana 0: Salah, Saied put Black Stars in trouble

The Panathinaikos star tested El-Hadary again in the 18th minute, but the shot-stopper did well to parry the curling shot from a free-kick.

Arizona escapes with win on Catanzaro's field goal

ET. The 49ers (1-8) lost their eighth in a row despite a strong game by Colin Kaepernick , who tied it at 20 with a 4-yard TD run with 1:55 to play. So the answer is: no, they can't keep it close. A couple of these penalties came in key situations for San Francisco. On the very next play, however, Palmer chose to throw on first down and Gerald Hodges stepped in front of it for the interception, giving the 49ers a chance to tie things up and perhaps even go for the win with a two-point ...

Bradley Beal (hamstring) out, Marcus Thornton starting for Wizards

The Bulls won back-to-back games for the first time since a 3-0 start, but forward Doug McDermott exited with a concussion early in the fourth quarter.

Coach Scott Brooks said that could change after the Wizards play Philadelphia and NY on Wednesday and Thursday. Read More

More to come from Mercedes, says Hamilton

The German is one step away from securing his first championship, which he will do if he wins at Interlagos regardless of where Mercedes team mate, triple champion and title rival Lewis Hamilton finishes. Behind the leading quartet came Red Bull duo Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo, who had hoped the drop in temperatures would help their cause, but they were 0.337s and 0.547s off the pace ultimately.

Browns Take Another Loss, This 1 of Historic Proportions

That left the Browns at 0-10, their worst start to a season since they joined the National Football League in 1950. It was a familiar scene for the Browns, who watched another opponent breeze past them in the second half. A two-point conversion on a slant to Kyle Juszczyk boosted the margin to 21-7 with 2:05 left in the third quarter. He was playing with a broken collarbone, but after the bad taunting call on Terrelle Pryor , McCown threw the ball up for grabs, resulting in a game-ending ... Read More

Carroll tells Rex to coach his own team, Rex fires back

Wood made his 59th consecutive start Monday night, a streak that dates back to 2012. Some, including the NFL's head of officiating, said Sherman should have been penalized for unnecessary roughness.

Colin Kaepernick plays best game of season in 49ers loss

Olesen seven shots clear in Turkey

Olesen seven shots clear in Turkey

The Englishman began the day seven shots in the wake of Olesen, but his front nine dismantled the Dane's advantage in supreme style as he blitzed the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort. And when Horsey three-putted the 16th after leaving himself with a severely-breaking birdie putt, Olesen could afford to drop a shot at the same hole on his way to a hard-fought fourth European Tour title.

But defender Leighton Baines and midfielder James McCarthy remain unavailable due to hamstring problems. However, they're still statistically the second best defence in the Premier League. Think you can do better than Lawro? His successor, Roberto Di Matteo (W4-D3-L3), had more pragmatic aims and did not even try to salvage a lost Premier League campaign, instead focusing on the Champions League and FA Cup. Read More

Giroud not a plan B, insists Wenger

Henry feels it's going to be a hard task to keep a healthy squad morale, if certain players who are used to being regulars, suddenly become impact players - but admitted it's the way of title winners. If it goes to extra-time or penalties, you play at home. "So we think it's important". Victory would also mark a welcome start to a series of matches in November which, after regularly losing momentum previously at this stage of the season, will provide a clear indication of Arsenal's likely ...
