BPL PREVIEWS

first_imgASTON VILLAVS WATFORDAston Villa have five points; no team with five, or fewer, in the division at this stage of the season has avoided relegation. Villa lost 4-0 at Everton last time out, their 12th game without a win and their 10th defeat of the 2015-16 campaign – the most in the Premier League.CRYSTAL PALACEVS NEWCASTLENewcastle have scored just 13 goals in 13 games in the Premier League this season, but six of those came in one match, the 6-2 victory over Norwich City. They have failed to find the net in three of their last four league outings, and sit just one point clear of the relegation zone.SUNDERLANDVS STOKE CITYGoals may not be in abundance. In the 13 Barclays Premier League games involving Stoke City, there have been just 23, the fewest of any club in the top division in England. They travel to Sunderland, who have won just once in six PL games at the Stadium of Light.LIVERPOOL VS SWANSEA CITYLiverpool return to Anfield after their remarkable 4-1 win at Manchester City last weekend. Indeed, the Reds have scored as many goals in their last two away games (seven) as they managed in their previous 11 away outings in the Barclays Premier League. But the Reds have scored just seven goals in six league games at Anfield this season.WEST HAMVS WEST BROMGiven the history of this fixture, a draw is on the cards. In six Premier League clashes between these teams at the Boleyn Ground, five have ended in draws. The other game was won by the Hammers, while Albion last won there in November 2003, in the second tier. And a goalless draw is possible; in Albion’s six away games there have been just seven goals (three for Albion, four for the opposition), the fewest of any team in the Premier League.last_img read more

Australia’s Zampa set to make his mark

first_imgNEW YORK, CMC :Exciting leg-spin prospect Adam Zampa says he is keen on making his mark in the upcoming Tri-Nation Series against hosts West Indies and South Africa, which bowls off in Guyana on Friday.With just two one-day internationals to his name, the 24-year-old from New South Wales said one of his major objectives for the Caribbean tour was making himself a fixture in the squad.”The conditions are going to suit spin bowling, that’s for sure, and I see it as another opportunity to try and cement my spot,” he said as the squad assembled here Sunday en route to the Caribbean.”I know there’s a lot of one-day cricket coming up in the next 12 months, so I’ll be trying to cement that spot. It’s going to be tough, obviously. There are some tough opponents coming up but I’m looking forward to bowling to some good players. Zampa has undergone a steep learning curve in the last few months. He made his international debut during the one-day series against New Zealand away and followed up with positive performances in the Twenty20 World Cup in India.EVENTUAL CHAMPIONHe then turned out for Rising Pune Supergiants in the Indian Premier League, taking 12 wickets in five games, including a haul of six for 19 against eventual champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in Visakhapatnam.More important, he said playing alongside the experienced former India Test and ODI captain, MS Dhoni, and national skipper Steve Smith, was a boost for his cricket.”It’s been a whirlwind couple of months for sure, particularly with the IPL. Not too many overseas spinners get that opportunity, so for me to have that opportunity straight off the back of the World Cup has been amazing,” said Zampa.”I think Melbourne Stars was good for me, playing under [David] Hussey in particular as a captain. I got to work with Trent Woodhill, my mentor, so ever since I made that decision, it’s kind of turned me around a little bit.”Australia open their campaign against West Indies at the National Stadium at Providence next Sunday.last_img read more

Wolves 2-1 Derby: George Saville double sinks resurgent Rams

first_imgWolves midfielder George Saville’s first two goals for the club halted a three-match losing run and condemned promotion-chasing Derby to a 2-1 defeat.Saville gave Wolves a 14th-minute lead in the Sky Bet Championship clash before Chris Martin equalised on the stroke of half-time.But Saville’s 86th-minute header gave Wolves their first win in eight games to deal a blow to Derby’s hopes of climbing into the Barclays Premier League.Derby had arrived at Wolves after back-to-back wins but were unable to capitalise on their dominance of the ball.Jacob Butterfield, who scored Derby’s winner in Wednesday’s 1-0 victory against Blackburn, tried to inject some life into a low-key opening when he tested Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme in the fifth minute.After being picked out by Chris Martin, Butterfield curled in a low drive from the edge of the area but Ikeme was more than equal to the task as he collected the shot just inside his near post.Derby had looked the side most likely to break the deadlock but they were stunned when Saville, making just his 16th appearance following his arrival from Chelsea in August 2014, struck with a neat finish.Winger Nathan Byrne cut in from the right wing and rolled a pass into the path of Saville, who rolled a low left-footed shot beyond the outstretched right hand of goalkeeper Scott Carson from just inside the penalty area.Saville’s day then turned briefly sour when he had a hand in Derby’s equaliser.Saville was adjudged by referee Graham Scott to have fouled Bradley Johnson just outside the penalty area.Martin, who had found chances hard to come by until this point in proceedings, skilfully lifted the ball over the Wolves wall and saw his shot leave Ikeme flat-footed.Wolves looked to mount a swift response but Bjorn Sigurdarson’s drive in stoppage time flew just over Carson’s crossbar.Derby’s interim manager Darren Wassall tried to add some more potency to his side 10 minutes into the second half when he sent on striker Andreas Weimann and winger Tom Ince to replace Johnny Russell and George Thorne.The move almost paid instant dividends on the hour when Ince latched on to Bradley Johnson’s pass and saw his curling shot drop just the wrong side of the post.Ince then repaid the compliment by teeing up Johnson in the 67th minute, only for Ikeme to comfortably save a weak shot.Wolves had struggled to test Carson in the second period, but in a rare moment of attacking intent they were denied by the width of the post.Sigurdarson found himself unmarked just outside the penalty area in the 82nd minute and saw his low bobbling shot beat Carson only to bounce to safety off the goal frame.Derby should have heeded that warning but failed to do so and were stunned when Matt Doherty’s left-wing cross picked out Saville whose towering header flew past Carson for the winner.
