Virgil van Dijk warns Manchester City that

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk believes an in-form Mohamed Salah is capable of doing damage even to a dominant Manchester City and could still beat Blues midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to the player of the year award. Premier Reebok Men's P. A. Parenteau White Third Jersey - NHL #15 Toronto Maple LeafsThe hugely-anticipated Champions League quarter-final clash between the Premier League's two top-scoring sides kicks off on Wednesday at Anfield where the emphasis is likely to be on goals. Women's Replica Majestic Jesse Barfield White Home Jersey - #29 MLB Toronto Blue Jays Cool BaseRunaway league leaders City's attacking intent revolves around the De Bruyne-David Silva partnership in midfield providing the ammunition for a pacy forward of Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and either Gabriel Jesus or Sergio Aguero. But in Salah Liverpool have the top-flight's leading scorer, with 29 of his 37 goals in a remarkable debut season with the Reds coming in the league and at such a consistent rate he has equalled the record of Robin van Persie and Cristiano Ronaldo of finding the net in 21 different matches - with six games still remaining. Asked whether the Egypt international could do serious damage to City, having already scored against them in their only Premier League defeat so far at Anfield in January, Van Dijk said: "That's what everyone knows. That's how we feel as Cameron Sutton Jerseywell. "He's that kind of player that you just need to be on your best. When he is 100 per cent and in the zone then he can beat anyone."There are ways to stop him but I'm not going to tell you because I don't want our opponents to think about it!" De Bruyne's form in the first half of the season appeared Butch Goring Jersey to make him a Jim Plunkett Jersey shoo-in for the Professional Footballers' Association Players' Player of the Year award, but Salah's goalscoring exploits are likely to have made it a much closer race. Van Dijk would not disclose whether the Liverpool players would be voting tactically and not supporting De Bruyne to help their team-mate's chances of winning."That's obviously not my decision. We need to look at ourselves," he added."He's having an amazing season but he needs to keep going, the season is still going." Despite being elevated to superstar status over the last year after his heroics in guiding Egypt to the World Cup, Salah remains a humble and hard-working player who shuns the limelight and is reluctant to give media interviews.

Mohammed Shami joins Delhi Daredevils after public feud with Hasin Jahan

Troubled India pacer Mohammad Shami joined Delh Daredevils ahead of the Indian Premier League, starting on April 7. Reebok Ken Dryden Authentic Men's Jersey - NHL Montreal Canadiens #29 Red Third New CD Shami reported for training at Feroz Shah Kotla finally after recovering from the road accident, that he suffered while he was coming back to Delhi from Dehradun. He was training there at the Abhimanyu Cricket Academy (ACA), which is run by Bengal batsman and India A player Abhimanyu Easwaran's father. Elite Men's Jermaine Kearse Green Jersey: NFL Nike New York Jets #10 Rush Vapor UntouchableThe 28-year-old now joins with the Gautam Gambhir-led squad midst family troubles involving his wife Hasin Jahan.Few days back, Hasin Jahan knocked the doors of Delhi Daredevils CEO Hemant Dua, asking him to bar the Indian pacer from playing in IPL. After meeting Dua, Jahan told ANI, "I kept my point in front of Hemant sir to not keep Shami in the IPL team until he resolves his family feud." Before this, Hasin had mentioned Shami's involvement in match-fixing, which forced the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) withhold his central contract. But, after a thorough investigation from BCCI's anti-corruption unit (ACSU) head Neeraj Kumar, he was cleared of any such thing and BCCI offered him a fresh central contract, which it had withheld following his wife's police complaint. Shami and Hasin have been involved Authentic Davante Adams Jersey in a spat for over a month now and Hasin has constantly mentioned the fact that Shami should be arrested, beaten up and prevented from playing in the IPL. It all started in March, when Hasin had accused Shami of extra-marital affairs with several women and following an official complaint, Kolkata Josh Reynolds Womens Jersey Police lodged an FIR against the India pacer and four of his family member. Over the next weeks, both Hasin and Shami took potshots at each other and issued strong statements in the media. Both parties accused the other of lying and Shami questioned Hasin's mental health.Hasin, meanwhile, said Shami was a flirt and periodically released screenshots of his alleged chats Authentic Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey with other women. But, looks like Hasin's requests will not be answered and Shami will play in the Carey Price Jersey IPL until and unless legal proceedings prevent him doing so. Shami was retained by Delhi Daredevils as they used the Right to Match card to bag his services for Rs 3 crore in the IPL auction in January this year.Delhi play their first match of the season on April 8 versus Kings XI Punjab at Feroz Shah Kotla. wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping wholesale jerseys

Rob Gronkowski despite friction with Bill Belichick he'll return

As New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski weighs his future, sources close to him say he has recently expressed that he is Authentic Jeremy Maclin Jersey more likely to continue his football career than retire at 28 years old. Nike Sean Weatherspoon Youth White Limited Jersey: #56 NFL Road Atlanta FalconsSources say Gronkowski still hasn't made a decision. But despite serious considerations since the end of the season of retiring because of physical and mental fatigue, sources say Gronkowski is "pretty certain" he'll come back as long as Tom Brady remains with the team. Men's Adidas Memphis Grizzlies #12 Ben McLemore Authentic Light Blue Alternate NBA JerseyHowever, this dose of good news for Patriots fans comes with some dilution: Lingering frustrations remain between Gronkowski and head coach Bill Belichick, along others in the Patriots organization, according to sources close to each side. Whether those frustrations on either side will impact Gronkowski's return to the team remains the final piece to this unfinished puzzle. For Gronkowski, the physical anguish of the 2017 season, which led him late in the regular season to tell people he was likely to retire, was paired with some mental fatigue from the high-strung culture within the Patriots organization, sources said. Nothing has occurred since the end of the season to convince him that is going to change -- and Gronkowski knows he'll need to be ready for a similar toll on his mind and body if he returns in 2018. For Belichick, since the season's end, Marvin Jones Jr Jersey sources say he has expressed Zach Zenner Jersey frustration with those close to him about Gronkowski, specifically questioning whether he remains "all-in," a critical aspect of Belichick's blueprint for success. Examples of Belichick's frustrations are as nuanced as his discontent with Gronkowski's message in a recent Instagram post regarding former Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola, who left New England to sign a contract with the Miami Dolphins. Beneath a video of him hugging Amendola that Gronkowski posted on March 14, he wrote, in part, "Be FREE, Be HAPPY." Should the offseason continue to create a sense within Gronkowski that he is fully committed to football, many close to Gronkowski and Belichick say they believe the friction between the two will ease. Although the discord should not be discounted, as one source explained, it should not be viewed as irreconcilable. For now, the situation surrounding Gronkowski continues to percolate behind the scenes while all sides remain generally vague in public forums. With the NFL draft still more than three weeks away, there is time for the situation to rectify itself. Should the silence linger deeper into April, however, all possibilities remain Marian Gaborik Jersey on the table. wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys from china cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseyscheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys

Warner wrath of Indian public: Ian Chappell

Former Australia captain Ian Chappell feels the BCCI move to impose IPL bans on Steve Smith and David Warner for ball tampering may have spared them the "wrath" of the Indian public. Men's Adidas Memphis Grizzlies #34 Brandan Wright Swingman Light Blue Alternate NBA Jersey"... While this is a severe hit to their bank balance, it may also be sparing them the wrath of the Indian public, coming as it would have done so close on the heels of the ball-tampering scandal. It's also a welcome occurrence if it's a sign that the BCCI is cracking down on bad behaviour under its jurisdiction," Chappell wrote in 'ESPNcricinfo'. Smith and Warner were each hit with 12-month bans by the national body for their roles in ball-tampering scandal during the Cape Town Test against South Africa last month. Soon after the BCCI banned the duo from the upcoming Indian Premier League. Cameron Bancroft was also hit with a nine-month suspension. Chappell added, "Its (BCCI) governance in recent years has been less than inspiring, and if this latest move represents a shift in attitude among cricket administrators, then the Cape Town calamity won't have been a complete black hole." The batting great said Cricket Australia and the ICC must cop some of the blame. "CA and the ICC have to accept some of the blame for the fact that cricketing behaviour worldwide has plummeted to these depths. They have consistently failed to halt the slide in on-field behaviour that has increasingly undermined the Bobby Clarke Youth jersey game's image. "This is typical cricket administration - it takes a calamitous occurrence to make them react." The disgraced trio returned home in shame for their roles in the ball-tampering scandal, apologising to the nation in tearful press conferences. Chappell further said, "Cricket has been heading down a slippery slope for a while, to the point where the credibility Marqueston Huff Youth jerseyof the game has been severely shaken." He said "strong leadership" is the need of the hour to correct this image but but none has been forthcoming."As always it's the administrators who either stuff up or are slow to react, and eventually the players suffer the consequences. "In this case the remorseful players, Smith, Warner and Bancroft, have suffered an immediate backlash, but it will be the embarrassment that follows the stigma of cheating like an ever-present shadow that will cause the lingering pain. "Let's hope that this instance of incredibly poor judgement proves to be a wake-up call for cricket overall and not just the three Australian players.

San Miguel pulls away in fourth for 2-1

A sizzling run to open the fourth quarter was all that San Miguel Beer needed to pull away from Magnolia and eventually take a 2-1 lead the 2017-18 PBA Philippine Cup finals.The Beermen took control in the payoff period en route to a 111-87 victory in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series on Easter Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum. Women's Nike Minnesota Vikings #19 Adam Thielen Game Purple Team Color NFL JerseyThe three-time defending All-Filipino champions unleashed a 17-3 run at the start of the final frame, which turned a 75-68 lead into a more comfortable 92-71 advantage with 6:18 left to play. More impressive than the run was how SMB did it: most of the grunt work was done by their reserves, as Brian Heruela, Gabby Espinas, and Matt Ganuelas-Rosser teamed up with Arwind Santos and Marcio Lassiter to shut down the Hotshots. Lassiter and Santos still did the bulk of the scoring, but their reserves had their shining moments as well. Ganuelas-Rosser scored off a nifty give-and-go play with Espinas, Heruela broke loose for a lay-up, and Espinas made the Magnolia defense pay with a baseline jumper. "The key here is we're able to match their energy," said San Miguel head coach Leo Austria. "Lampas-lampas pa nga, and that is because of our second unit." "The second unit, at the start of the fourth quarter, sila ang nag-trabaho. That's why I opted to let them stay until the last few minutes," he added. "I think, if they keep on stepping up every game, I'm confident na every game, puwede kami manalo." Lassiter led San Miguel with 24 points, 10 of which came in the final quarter. June Mar Fajardo finished with 21 points and 17 rebounds, and sat out the entirety of the fourth frame. Chris Ross and Santos finished with 14 points, and Heruela had 11 markers. San Miguel outscored Magnolia, 36-19, in the final period to finally break the game open. Before their run at the start of the payoff period, it was a tight ball game as the Beermen struggled to pull away. They led by as much as 11 points, 66-55, in the third period, thanks to Fajardo's inside presence, but the Hotshots were ready to rally every time. Magnolia managed to get to within three points, 64-67, off two charities by Rome dela Rosa. They were still within four points, 66-70, after two charities knocked down by Paul Lee, but Lassiter uncorked a deep three-pointer with 20.9 seconds to go in the third frame that gave the momentum back to San Miguel. The Beermen did not let go of that momentum, as they locked down on the Hotshots in the final period behind a smaller line-up that appeared to catch Magnolia Womens Michael Frolik Jersey off-guard. Making matters worse for Magnolia was that Lee appeared to hurt his right hand with nine minutes left to play. The high-scoring guard was eventually subbed out of the game with 8:28 left and did Womens Curtis Samuel Jersey not return. San Miguel shot 50.5% from the field, and held Magnolia to only 37.3% shooting."We're not yet done," warned Austria after the game. "We need two more wins to get the championship."

Darren Lehmann worried about Smith, Warner and Bancroft

Cricket Australia on Tuesday cleared Lehmann of any involvement in the controversy after announcing severe punishments on captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and Cameron Bancroft the following day. Women's Randy Jones Authentic Navy Blue Majestic Jersey: MLB San Diego Padres #35 Alternate Cool Base"I worry about the three guys immensely. We love all of our players and they are going through a really tough time. I'm not going to resign. We need to change how we play. Previously we butted heads but that's not the way to play going forward. I need to change," Lehmann said at a press conference on Wednesday. Lehmann also said the way New Zealand play is a model for how to approach the game and even apologised to the Australian fans. "The players have made a grave mistake but they are not bad people. There is a human side to this. I hope people will give them a second chance. I want apologise to the Australian public . We know we have let so many people down. We are truly sorry," he added. Lehmann however, avoided a question over whether he was responsible, as many pundits have suggested, for the 'in-your-face' style of the Australian team.The coach reiterated that the first he knew of the ball-tampering incident was when he saw it on the big screen at Newlands, and said he was confident it was a one-off incident and had not been part of the team's playing culture in the past. "The first Patrick Wiercioch Jersey I saw of it was on that screen, got straight on the walky-talky and said something. There were a couple of expletives in there. Then I spoke to the players at tea time and said we would deal with it at the end of play, which happened through the process. "I am confident it is an isolated issue and a grave mistake. It's never happened before in speaking to those guys," Lehmann said.Contrary to various media reports, Lehmann said the trio of players Alex Anzalone Authentic Jersey had the backing of the entire team, despite their actions. "When you lose three men in your team, who obviously made a mistake, that hurts all of us. Saying goodbye to them is difficult."The whole group is upset and we understand the enormity of it and the public perception. We have to try and win the fans back over and play the best cricket we can. "If we take a leaf out of someone like New Zealand... we push the boundaries on the Authentic Michael Wilhoite Jersey ground, so we need to make sure we are respecting the game and its traditions."Lehmann also backed Smith to resume his international career when he had served his 12-month suspension. "He is going to come back a better person, there is no doubt about that. To see the hurt in him over the last three or four days, you just feel for him."Smith and Warner were banned for a year each while Bancroft was banished for nine months. Lehmann on the other hand, was given a clean chit to continue his role as head coach of the Australian cricket team. wholesale jerseys from china cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys

Jurgen Klopp's agent opens up on Bayern Munich's

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is being linked with the imminent vacancy at Bayern Munich once again and his agent has given his views on a story that could gather momentum in the coming weeks.With veteran tactician Jupp Heynckes set to step down as Bayern boss at the end of this season, Klopp is believed to be one of the prime targets for the Bavarian giants. Men's Adidas Philadelphia 76ers #13 Wilt Chamberlain Swingman Blue/Red No. Throwback NBA JerseyKlopp's strong relationship with Bayern president Uli Hoeness has fuelled Authentic Jimmy Paredes Jersey rumours that he could be tempted to make a move to Bayern, with his agent Marc Kosicke offering these comments. Duncan Keith Youth Nike Black 2014 Premier Olympic Hockey Jersey - Third Team Canada #2 Jerseys "He is under contract until 2022 and I don't think his work is finished (at Liverpool) yet," Kosicke told Sport1. "But you have to bear in mind many factors. When you move to England, you cannot underestimate the lack of a winter break. This reduces your lifetime." Klopp's frustration with the hectic fixture list in English football appears to have been building in recent weeks and he has highlighted his his annoyance at games being moved by television companies in recent press conferences, yet there are no suggestions he would consider a move away from Liverpool this summer. The former Borussia Dortmund boss would be a leading candidate for Bayern if he showed any interest in the position, with Kosicke refusing to rule out the prospect."Coaching one of the big clubs in Europe isn't something that is unattractive, but everything has to suit," he added. "Yes, Bayern are looking for a coach in the Howie Morenz Youth jersey summer, but Womens Matt Belisle Jersey Jurgen has a long contract. At the moment, Jurgen isn't thinking about coaching another club than the Reds. "No coach in the world is bigger than any club. Generally, the club is always bigger. Jurgen isn't too big for Bayern Munich and Bayern Munich isn't too big for him. He definitely could do a very good job there. "Bayern and Klopp would be a good fit, but it isn't something that is Jakub Zboril Womens Jersey an option at the moment." wholesale nfl jerseys from china wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from chinawholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys

2018 NFL Mock Draft 3.0: Mel Kiper's picks for 1-32

That means team needs are much clearer, and we know which teams Phil McConkey Jersey have gaping holes in their rosters. That's where the NFL draft comes in.Among the holes (mostly) filled in free agency: wide receiver in Chicago, cornerback in L.A. (Rams), left tackle in New York (Giants) and quarterback in Minnesota. Men's Toronto Maple Leafs #43 Nazem Kadri Reebok Royal Blue New Third Authentic NHL JerseySo we're on to Mock Draft 3.0 -- click the links for 2.0 and 1.0 -- with several changes on the board based on how free agency impacted the first round. Let's go 1-32. (My new Big Board and Authentic Martin Jones Jersey position rankings can be found here.) Nike NFL Hunter Henry Navy Blue Jersey Men's Limited: #86 Los Angeles Chargers Home Vapor Untouchable No change here from my first two mock drafts. Womens Paul Thompson Jersey The Browns are zeroing in on a quarterback with the first overall pick, and Allen has crushed the pre-draft process. The addition of Tyrod Taylor allows Allen, who is Antti Niemi Jersey the most raw of the top quarterback prospects in this class, to sit on the sideline and adjust to the speed of the NFL. Cleveland doesn't have to play Allen immediately, which really hurt DeShone Kizer in 2017. A data- and research-filled presentation from the NFL's medical staff on Tuesday prompted owners to demand a new and potentially far-reaching rule to ban players from lowering their heads to initiate contact with their helmets. Competition committee chairman Rich McKay scrambled to incorporate an intended point of emphasis into the rule book within hours, with plenty of details left to be determined.As owners disperse Wednesday, let's review what we know about that rule and the other prominent on-field changes that were approved, tabled and rejected this week in Orlando. The requirement to "survive the ground" has been eliminated a change designed specifically to avoid future instances of counterintuitive rulings that spurred debate about plays involving Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson in 2010, Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant in 2014 and Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Jesse James in 2017. Now, a receiver must control the ball, establish himself in bounds and perform a football move such as a third step or a lunge -- to make a legal catch. This definition applies to players who remain standing or are going to the ground. It will remain eligible for replay review. McKay believes this change makes the rule objective, but others -- including former officiating chief Dean Blandino -- think it will simply swap one set of debates out for another.

Danni Wyatt century brings record T20 victory

Wyatt is only the second woman to score two T20 international hundreds and got England to their target of 199 with eight deliveries to spare.India had earlier posted 198-4, the highest score made against England. Reebok Rene Robert Authentic Women's Jersey - NHL Colorado Avalanche #14 White Away England top the table with two wins from two after also beating Australia.They play Australia again on Wednesday, by which time their place in the final could be assured, if the Southern Stars beat India Monday. Youth Melvin Gordon Limited White Nike Jersey: NFL Los Angeles Chargers #28 Road Vapor UntouchableIf England's eight-wicket victory Bobby Hart Jersey over Australia on Friday was a complete performance, this win was made by the brilliance of Wyatt, who has now hit two centuries in three T20 innings. She told BBC Sport: "I made a fifty and a hundred in the Ashes to show the world what I can do. I had the belief that I could do the same again in this country. When it was in my Authentic Devin Hester Jersey area, I whacked it. was confident and positive the whole innings. It's amazing. "Having the belief from the coaches really helps. I've faced the best bowlers in the world and hit them all over the park. I know I can do it, so hopefully there is more to come."The Brabourne Stadium was once again ideal for run-scoring, with a flat pitch and rapid outfield, and India bounced along after being asked to bat first. England, below the standard the set with the ball against Australia, were often too short and Smriti Mandhana cashed in.The left-handed opener made 76 from 40 balls, Anthony Sherman Jersey hitting to long-off and mid-wicket, in a stand of 129 with Mithali New York Yankees Youth jersey Raj (53). After Mandhana was well held by Tammy Beaumont at point off Nat Sciver, Raj holed out to long-on where Jenny Gunn, becoming the first player - woman or man - to win 100 T20 international caps, took the catch. England checked India's scoring - only 36 runs came between overs 13 and 18 - but 32 were added in the final two to leave the prospect of the record pursuit.Wyatt crashed three fours from Jhulan Goswami's first over of the innings to begin a wonderful display of clean striking. Hitting down the ground and through the off side, she combated the lack of pace from India's slower bowlers with deft movement down the pitch to thrash 15 fours and five sixes. Wyatt added 61 for the first wicket with Bryony Smith (15), her 24-ball half-century beating the 29 deliveries taken by Charlotte Edwards against South Africa in 2007 to set a new record for the fastest fifty by an England woman. A further 96 was shared with Beaumont (35), Wyatt reaching three figures by hitting off-spinner Deepti Sharma for a straight boundary. The 52 balls she took made it the second-fastest women's T20 international century of all time. She fell for 124, caught at long-on off Sharma two runs short of the highest score in women's T20 internationals, leaving Sciver and captain Heather Knight to complete a huge chase with the minimum of fuss. wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys from china cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys from china wholesale jerseyscheap jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping

Don't see Steve Smith continuing as Australia captain, says Ganguly

The Dallas Cowboys attempted to make a big splash early in free by going after Sammy Watkins, but the receiver opted for the Kansas City Chiefs instead. Nike Men's Robert Woods Elite White Road Jersey - Los Angeles Rams NFL #17The Cowboys added receiver Deonte Thompson on a one-year deal Thursday worth a max of $2.5 million. On Friday, Allen Hurns told ESPN's Josina Anderson he was signing with the Cowboys, and a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the receiver will get a two-year contract. Reebok NHL Men's Alex Ovechkin Black Ice Premier Jersey - #8 Washington CapitalsIt all points to Dez Bryant's future with Cowboys, and it doesn't look good.Had the Cowboys been able to land Watkins, Bryant would no longer have been a Cowboy. With Byron Maxwell Jersey Thompson and Hurns, Bryant's future looks dicey at best. The Cowboys have said they need to address Bryant's contract in some manner but have yet to have discussions about a pay cut. Bryant is set to make $12.5 million in 2017 and count $16.5 million against the cap. If the Cowboys cut Bryant -- the franchise leader in touchdown catches -- they could save $8.5 million or $12.5 million, depending on designation. The Cowboys re-signed Terrance Williams to a four-year deal last year with his $3.5 million base salary guaranteed this season. They also have Cole Beasley, Ryan Switzer and Noah Brown under contract -- all wide receivers who caught passes last year. Brice Butler is a free agent who is likely looking for a new home with Thompson coming to the Cowboys. Thompson and Hurns do not Will Compton Jerseyhave Bryant's pedigree. Thompson has fewer yards receiving in Womens Wayne Gallman Jersey his career than Bryant has had in three seasons. Hurns' best season came in 2015 when he had 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns. Bryant has topped that three times in his career. The Cowboys' free-agency focus has been on receiver. They wanted Watkins, have added Thompson and will add Hurns. The Cowboys have a keen interest in some of the top receivers in the upcoming draft. Bryant's numbers have fallen since he signed a five-year, $70 million contract after the 2014 season when he led the NFL in touchdown catches with 16. Not all of it is his fault. Injuries have hurt him, as did poor quarterback play in 2015 with Tony Romo starting and finishing just two games. He had a good eight-game run with Dak Prescott to close 2016, but they were never in sync in James Neal Womens Jersey 2017.
