Arsenal, Liverpool through to League Cup quarter-finals

first_img Late scare LONDON (AP): Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge and Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both scored twice as the experienced players secured passage for their youthful teams into the quarter-finals of the League Cup yesterday. Sturridge, who has failed to score in seven Premier League matches this season, has only found joy in front of goal in England’s second-tier knockout competition when top-flight typically deploy weaker teams. Sturridge’s double eliminated Tottenham with a 2-1 victory at Anfield, his first Liverpool goals since also netting twice in the League Cup in August. After firing into the roof of the net from Marko Grujic’s cross in the ninth minute, the England striker tucked the ball under Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm in the second half. Vincent Janssen pulled one back from the penalty spot but Tottenham couldn’t force extra time against its Premier League title rival.It was a smoother night for Arsenal against Reading, despite only beating the second-tier League Championship club 2-0. Oxlade-Chamberlain poked the ball through defender Tyler Blackett’s legs into the corner of the net to put Arsenal ahead in the 33rd minute. A deflected shot from the England international doubled Arsenal’s lead in the 78th. Premier League side Hull survived a late scare against Bristol City of the League Championship to win 2-1. Harry Maguire and Michael Dawson scored either side of half-time but City forward Lee Tomlin grabbed a goal in the third of seven minutes of stoppage time. The biggest win of the night saw second-tier leaders Newcastle, relegated from the Premier League last season, rout 10-man Preston 6-0. Leeds-Norwich went to extra-time after a 1-1 draw. The fourth round will be completed today with three all-Premier League matches, headlined by Manchester United hosting Manchester City in the season’s second Manchester derby clash between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola. There’s also a London derby between West Ham and Chelsea, while Southampton take on Sunderland.last_img read more

Michael O’Neill urges Northern Ireland to play ‘with loads of emotion’ v Wales

first_imgMichael O’Neill claims Northern Ireland and Wales will serve up a “good old-fashioned British game” in the French capital and he wants his players to feed off the hype surrounding the last-16 tie.The two British countries, who are both debutants in the tournament, meet for a place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 at the Parc des Princes in a game which will be officiated by England’s Martin Atkinson.Coleman’s team have already faced a home nation in France in the shape of England and he has urged his players not to get caught up in the emotional aspect of another fixture against near neighbours.Yet O’Neill refuted the notion he would do the same, insisting instead that such an atmosphere must act as a catalyst.“I want my team to play with loads of emotion; I want them to fully understand the significance of the game,” he said.“When you look at our performances, especially in the latter two games, you couldn’t question the effort of the team from the first minute to the last minute.“I don’t think you can play without emotion. I don’t expect my team to and I think it will be a big factor in the game tomorrow night.“It will be like a cup tie, but whether it’s like a Premier League team going to a Championship team…that’s irrelevant.“The main importance is that we make it a cup tie. We were bottom of the simulation rankings and we’re proud of that. We have an English referee and we want everything that is good about the British game in it.“We want to do our best within the rules and we expect a good old-fashioned British game tomorrow night.”A ‘battle of Britain’ certainly emerged 12 years ago in front of 63,500 fans at the Millennium Stadium when three men were sent off inside 22 minutes before the Welsh fought back to claim a 2-2 draw.O’Neill was neither playing or managing in that contest, and his relatable derby experiences come from a comparatively smaller stage.“When I was manager at Brechin, the Brechin-Montrose derby atmosphere was electric with those 500 people,” he joked.“My (derby) record is not something I give a lot of thought to.“We played Scotland recently in a derby game. The games have an edge to them but this would not be different against any other European nation because of the pride at stake.“If me and Chris had been told we would face each other for a place in the quarter final I think both of us would have readily accepted that.”For both managers and many of the players, Saturday’s game will be the biggest of their careers.Asked what he would tell his team prior to kick-off, O’Neill responded: “The message for the team is simple – play the game of your life. We don’t want this to end, we want to be going forward to Lille in the next round.“We have wrung every drop we can out of this experience and we want more.” Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill 1last_img read more
