Blues go top as Villa hold Arsenal



Chelsea are now a point ahead of Manchester United with a game in hand after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Birmingham at Stamford Bridge.
Florent Malouda headed home from six yards in the fifth minute after Joe Cole's clever cross found him unmarked, and a Frank Lampard brace sealed the victory which ended Blues' 15-match unbeaten run.
Arsenal dropped a place to third, two points behind the leaders, after they twice hit the woodwork in a goalless draw at Villa Park.
Cesc Fabregas struck the post in first-half stoppage time and then Tomas Rosicky crashed a shot against the underside of the bar after the break.
Villa were arguably the better side in a pulsating end-to-end affair but a point only keeps Martin O'Neill's side in seventh.
Elsewhere Landon Donovan netted his first goal for Everton as they inflicted more misery on Sunderland with a 2-0 victory at Goodison Park.
Tim Cahill headed Everton in front in the seventh minute before Donovan, on loan from Los Angeles Galaxy, doubled the advantage 11 minutes later.
The Black Cats have now recorded just one win in 13 league matches.
In the night's other game, Gary Caldwell scored his first goal for Wigan but it was not enough to prevent Blackburn from recording a 2-1 triumph.
Morten Gamst Pedersen took advantage of a mistake from on-loan goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic in the 20th minute to score his third goal in six matches.
But, just 10 minutes into the second half Caldwell equalised on his second appearance since his recent move from Celtic.
However, Nikola Kalinic bagged the winner with 15 minutes to go.

[EPL] Liverpool terus suram, sekadar catat keputusan seri


LONDON - Hasrat Liverpool menukar musim yang suram dalam Liga Perdana England tidak menjadi selepas sekadar mencatat keputusan seri 1-1 dengan Stoke di Stadium Britannia, semalam.

Jaringan pada babak kedua daripada Sotirios Kyrgiakos sedikit melegakan tekanan ke atas Liverpool dan pengurusnya yang semakin panas dengan kritikan, Rafael Benitez.
Namun, kedudukan itu tidak lama, apabila Stoke memperoleh gol penyamaan pada minit ke-90.
Benitez sebelum ini dikritik hebat, malah penyokong Liverpool sendiri mendesak pemilik kelab menyingkirkan pengurus itu selepas membawa The Reds ke musim yang hambar, malah tersingkir daripada Piala FA selepas tewas kepada Reading, beberapa hari lalu.
Kelemahan barisan benteng Liverpool semakin terbukti selepas pemain Stoke, Huth bingkas menyumbat gol penyamaan selepa pelawat gagal mengeluarkan bola daripada tendangan sudut.
Paling mengecewakan penyokong Liverpool ialah beberapa peluang keemasan yang terlepas begitu sahaja terutama tandukan Dirk Kuyt yang menyaksikan bola melepasi palang dalam masa kecederaan.
Keputusan seri itu meletakkan Liverpool pada kedudukan ketujuh liga, empat mata di belakang pasukan tangga keempat, Manchester City yang akan menentang Everton di Goodison Park, selepas ini. - AFP

KUALA LUMPUR -- Jaringan tunggal Hardi Jaafar memastikan Selangor kekal menguasai carta persaingan bola sepak Liga Super musim 2010 setelah mereka menumpaskan KL PLUS 1-0 di Stadium Petaling Jaya, semalam.
Menerima sepakan sudut, pemain tengah itu melepaskan rembatan kencang kaki kanan dari luar kotak penalti yang turut mengenai seorang pemain lawan sebelum menerjah gol pada minit ke-67.
Terengganu pula melonjak ke tangga kedua liga dengan merampasnya daripada Kelantan dengan kemenangan besar 4-0 ke atas Pulau Pinang di Stadium Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah, Kuala Terengganu.
Pesta jaringan menerusi Firdaus Fauzi pada minit ke-57, Ashaari Shamsuddin (61), Joseph Kallang Tie (81) dan Manaf Mamat (92), membolehkan anak buah Irfan Bakti Abu Salim itu mengumpul tujuh mata liga.
Johor FC turut mengekori rapat di tangga ketiga selepas menumbangkan Kedah 1-0 di Stadium Darul Aman, Alor Setar hasil sepakan Mohammad Khairul dari luar kotak penalti pada masa kecederaan babak kedua.
Dua gol Shahrizan Salleh pada minit ke-85 dan 92, pula membolehkan Pahang melonjak ke tangga keempat hasil kemenangan tipis 2-1 ke atas T-Team di Stadium Darul Makmur, Kuantan.
Pelawat bagaimanapun sempat mengejutkan tuan rumah pada minit ke-18 dengan jaringan Hazrul Hazran yang mendapat umpanan lambung Abdul Hadi Yahya.

[MSL] Kedah tewas, Johor FC ikat Negeri Sembilan



KUALA LUMPUR - Kedah mensia-siakan peluang untuk merampas semula teraju carta persaingan bola sepak Liga Super musim 2010 apabila tersungkur kepada Perlis 0-1 di Stadium Darul Aman, Alor Setar, semalam.
Malah, anak buah Ahmad Yusof itu masih tumpas akibat gol tunggal Azrul Ahmad pada minit ke-17 yang menanduk masuk biarpun pelawat terpaksa bermain dengan 10 orang selama 70 minit.
Ia gara-gara Singa Utara kehilangan Badrul Azam Zamri yang menerima dua kad kuning setelah mengasari sayap kanan Sang Kenari, Baddrol Bakhtiar dan menendang bola keluar sesuka hati.
Juara Piala Malaysia musim lalu, Negeri Sembilan pula hanya terselamat dengan jaringan penyamaan Norizam Salaman untuk mengikat Johor FC 1-1 dan mencuri satu mata dari Stadium JCorp, Pasir Gudang.
Wan Rohaimi Wan Ismail meletakkan tuan rumah menghampiri tiga mata dan peluang menyaingi Selangor di teraju liga dengan gol minit ke-75 setelah menanduk sepakan sudut dari sebelah kiri oleh Khairul Ismail.
Namun, jurulatih pelawat, Wan Jamak Wan Hassan khususnya tetap menarik nafas lega apabila Norizam, bekas pemain Johor yang berhijrah ke Negeri Sembilan musim ini, menyumbat rembatan rendah pada minit ke-83.
Sementara itu, di Stadium Sultan Muhammed IV, Kota Bharu, Kelantan yang diterajui B. Sathianathan kembali mengorak langkah meyakinkan dengan membenam Johor 3-0 sekali gus melonjak ke tangga kedua Liga Super.
Akmal Rizal Ahmad Rakhli membuka pesta kejayaan Wira Merah dengan rembatan masuk minit seawal minit ketiga, diikuti voli Badri Radzi dari luar kotak (47) dan disudahi tandukan ketua pasukan, Indra Putra Mahayuddin (49).

[FA Cup] Reds stunned by Anfield cup exit


Liverpool's disastrous season plunged to new depths on Wednesday as they lost 2-1 to Reading in their FA Cup third-round replay at Anfield.
Liverpool lost Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres to injuries during the first half but those blows were nothing compared to the one inflicted on them by Reading.

The Reds had gone ahead in first-half stoppage time when Gerrard's shot was deflected home by Ryan Bertrand but Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised from the spot in the 94th minute to send the game into extra time.
Rafa Benitez's side were frankly a shambles in the added 30 minutes and Shane Long's headed winner in the 100th minute was no more than Reading deserved.
Liverpool were boosted ahead of the tie by confirmation of Maxi Rodriguez's signing, but they were soon made aware of the game they were in as Reading put in some uncompromising tackling. Matthew Mills got away with a warning for clattering into Torres, before Jem Karacan was booked for flattening Steven Gerrard in the first four minutes.
And although Liverpool had the majority of the early possession, Diego Cavalieri had to make a fine save from Sigurdsson's free-kick, then a shot on the turn from Simon Church.
Dirk Kuyt needed treatment following a fierce challenge by Bertrand, before Reading should have taken the lead after 22 minutes when Church's cross was allowed to reach the far post - where Grzegorz Rasiak missed the target from three yards.
Liverpool's problems worsened after 29 minutes when Torres went off, replaced by David Ngog. The Spanish international had never rally recovered from that early bodycheck from Mills and headed straight down the tunnel with Liverpool doctor, Mark Waller, for treatment seemingly to a
knee injury.
The home side, at best, were aimless, but did manage to put together a 40th-minute move which almost bore fruit. Philipp Degen's strong angled run to the edge of the box produced a pass for Yossi Benayoun, who curled a shot narrowly wide.
Mills was booked for a foul on Benayoun before Liverpool grabbed a fortunate lead when Gerrard's angled shot clipped Bertrand and deceived Adam Federici at the near post.
Liverpool's troubles worsened when Gerrard failed to appear after the break, Ryan Babel coming on to join Ngog up front. The Liverpool skipper was believed to have suffered a hamstring strain.
With both talismen off the pitch and injured, it was left to Liverpool's supporting cast to get through this tie.
Degen was booked for diving by referee Phil Dowd, having fallen in the box but without a hint of an appeal.
Liverpool's response to their adversity was surprisingly positive, and they pinned Reading back, with the visitors bringing on midfielder Brian Howard for Kalifa Cisse on the hour.
Next on for Reading was Jimmy Kebe for Rasiak five minutes later - and someone they were still ahead after 80 minutes when McAnuff ran 60-yards right through Liverpool's defence before sidefooting wide from 12 yards with only Cavalieri to beat.
Reading continued to press for an equaliser, and Church sent a free-header over the bar from 10 yards with five minutes left.
But Reading got their reward when Benayoun was adjudged to have clipped Long's heels, and Sigurdsson stepped up to fire home the penalty which took the tie into extra-time.
Emiliano Insua's run created a chance for Babel to force Federici into a low save, but it was still Reading looking the more confident.
And they stunned the Kop by taking the lead after 100 minutes. Brynjar Gunnarsson pushed the ball between Insua's legs on the right and crossed for Long to head home from close range.
Liverpool tried to respond, but even when Benayoun was clear, he could only manage a weak shot that Federici saved with his legs.
The second period of extra-time saw Liverpool struggle desperately to save themselves. But their nervous play was riddled with mistakes and terrible passing.
Jamie Carragher, Babel and Ngog all had shots which failed to trouble Federici, and Reading more than deserved their victory.

[EPL] Transfer Gossip.. Again!!



Liverpool Target Jones and Onuoha
According to The People, Liverpool are weighing up a swap deal that would bring Kenwyne Jones to Merseyside and send Ryan Babel to Sunderland.
Analysis: Getting cash for Babel would be fantastic, but adding another quality striker would do them just as well. Considering that Jones seems to be on the open market and that Sunderland are also looking for some new attacking options of their own, perhaps there could be some legs to this one.
Also according to The People, Rafa Benitez is also targeting a loan move for Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha.
Analysis: Onuoha might have the chance to have more regular first-team opportunities at Liverpool, at least in the short term, than he would at City, but City might not be so willing to nicely assist a rival like that.
Pompey Put £14m Tag On Kaboul
Portsmouth have told would-be suitors Manchester City and Sunderland that they‘ll have to pony up £14m for defender Younes Kaboul. (Daily Mail)
Analysis: Kaboul’s a talent, yes, but wanting that much would appear to be trying to take advantage of City and Sunderland’s (though not at the level City can, of course) willingness to throw cash around to help their troubled financial situation.
Duo In For Rodallega
Stoke and Birmingham could be set to battle it out for Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega, who could be up for sale for £10m. (The Mirror)
Analysis: When you’re barely above the relegation zone, selling your top scorer might appear to be mailing it in. However, the funds would help bring in additions that could help Wigan more than keeping Rodallega would.
Fulham Agree Okaka Deal
Fulham have agreed terms with Roma on a loan deal for striker Stefano Okaka, and the deal will go through once Fulham agrees terms with the 20-year-old. (The Sun)
Analysis: With Bobby Zamora out for an extended spell, bolstering their front line quickly was a must for Fulham, and this also serves as a chance for Okaka to build off of a solid showing in the Europa League and show that he is one to watch for the future.
Sunderland Close On Cabanas Deal
Sunderland could soon tie up a deal for Paraguayan striker Salvador Cabanas. The 29-year-old, who has 10 goals in 44 appearances for his country, would arrive on loan for the remainder of the season with a view to a permanent move in the summer. (The Mirror)
Analysis: Cabanas has been a prolific scorer throughout his career, and as is the case with Humberto Suazo, it’s about time he gets a chance to show his skills in a top European league.
Coyle Targets Weiss
New Bolton boss Owen Coyle has his eyes on a loan swoop fro young Manchester City winger Vladimir Weiss. (The Mirror)
Analysis: Weiss has impressed in three Carling Cup appearances, but he needs regular football so that match fitness won’t be an issue ahead of the World Cup, so if that’s on offer at Bolton, this would be a smart move for him.
Wolves Hopeful On O’Hara
Wolves are after a loan move for Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara, but due to O’Hara having had a loan spell at Portsmouth and his couple of appearances for Tottenham prior to the loan spell, a move to Wolves or another Premier League club would need a green light from the Premier League. (The Mirror)
Analysis: Considering that Portsmouth’s financial difficulties were behind O’Hara not being able to stay at the club longer, there shouldn’t be a problem for him to get approval to move elsewhere this month.

[MSL] Berita Baik!! : Astro bakal siarkan Liga M




PETALING JAYA - Jika dilihat dari segi prinsip, syarikat siaran berbayar, Astro dan Persatuan Bola Sepak Malaysia (FAM) sudah hampir bersetuju untuk menayangkan siaran langsung Liga Malaysia musim ini.
Menurut Setiausaha Agung FAM, Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad, pihaknya sekarang ini hanya menunggu untuk menandatangani perjanjian daripada Astro yang akan dilakukan bila-bila masa sahaja.
"Perbincangan ini sudah dilakukan sejak pertengahan musim lalu dan Astro telah menunjuk minat untuk menyiarkan perlawanan siaran langsung bagi saingan Liga Super dan Liga Perdana," katanya ketika ditemui pemberita di Wisma FAM, semalam.
Jelasnya, walaupun Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) telah menjadi penyiar rasmi bagi saingan Liga Malaysia tetapi siaran langsung yang bakal ditayangkan oleh Astro tidak akan bertembung dengan menyiarkan perlawanan yang sama pada hari yang sama.
"Setakat ini belum ada sebarang bantahan daripada RTM dan kami amat memahami prinsip mereka tetapi untuk kebaikan sukan bola sepak saya rasa perkara ini tidak akan menjadi satu masalah.
"Kami hanya menunggu masa untuk menandatangani perjanjian dengan Astro dan satu sidang akhbar mengenai majlis ini akan diadakan nanti," katanya.
Kata Azzuddin, perlawanan siaran langsung yang bakal ditayangkan oleh Astro diadakan pada Jumaat, ini bermakna salah satu perlawanan Liga Super akan diadakan lebih awal sehari manakala perlawanan Liga Perdana sememangnya berlangsung pada hari Jumaat setiap minggu.
Ditanya mengenai kehadiran penonton yang pasti akan terjejas kerana sudah tahu lebih awal bahawa perlawanan hari Jumaat akan disiarkan secara langsung, Azzuddin berkata, mereka bersedia untuk berdepan dengan risiko.
"Kalau seseorang peminat itu betul-betul meminati bola sepak, mereka akan datang ke stadium untuk memberi sokongan kepada pasukan kesayangan mereka, siaran langsung ini memberi peluang kepada mereka yang tinggal jauh dari stadium," ujarnya.

[EPL] Hatrik Tevez Benam Blackburn Rovers


Jaringan hatrik Carlos Tevez membantu melonjakkan Manchester City di tangga keempat Liga Perdana England apabila menundukkan Blackburn Rovers 4-1 di Eastlands di sini semalam.


Keputusan tersebut membolehkan City mengekalkan rekod empat kemenangan berturut-turut di bawah pengurus Roberto Mancini dari Itali walaupun mereka melepaskan gol pertama di bawah bekas pengurus Inter Milan itu apabila Morten Gamst Pedersen menjaringkan gol untuk Rovers menjadikan kedudukan 3-1.


Bagaimana pun perlawanan tersebut menjadi milik Tevez dari Argentina yang bermain cemerlang untuk meledakkan 11 gol dalam sembilan perlawanan.


Bekas pemain Manchester United itu membuka jaringan pada minit ketujuh dan selepas jaringan cantik Micah Richards untuk gol kedua, Tevez meledakkan dua gol termasuk satu jaringan pada saat akhir perlawanan untuk kemenangan City.


City kini hanya ketinggalan tujuh mata berbanding pendahulu liga Chelsea dan kelab yang membuat perbelanjaan besar hasil sokongan jutawan Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mansour itu kini semakin bermegah untuk menjuarai liga musim ini.


Team Line-up:

City: Given; Garrido, Kompany, Richards, Zabaleta; Bellamy (Robinho 69), Barry, De Jong, Petrov (Boyata 87); Tevez, Mwaruwari (Santa Cruz 81)

Blackburn: Robinson; Givet, Nelson, Samba, Jacobsen; Pedersen, Nzonzi, Andrews (Hoilett 45), Emerton; Dunn (Olsson 66); Di Santo (Kalinic 45)

[EPL] Benitez sedia lelong barisan bintang Liverpool



LONDON - Pengurus Rafael Benitez mengakui, beliau mungkin tidak berdaya untuk menghalang daripada menjual pemain-pemain bintang Liverpool.
Buat kali pertama, Benitez mendedahkan, Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard (gambar),  Javier Mascherano dan Pepe Reina mungkin terpaksa 'dikorbankan' jika The Reds gagal menjamin tangga keempat Liga Perdana England musim ini.
Pengurus dari Sepanyol itu memberitahu, beliau tidak mampu menolak tawaran lumayan ke atas mana-mana pemain bintangnya tanpa persetujuan pemilik kelab, Tom Hicks dan George Gillett.
"Masa depan Liverpool kini bergantung sama ada kami mampu memenangi slot kelayakan Liga Juara-Juara musim depan atau tidak," kata Beni- tez.
"Namun, jika ada kelab yang datang dan membuat tawaran lumayan ke atas seseorang pemain, maka semua tindakan selepas ini akan di- buat demi kebaikan Liverpool.
"Saya tidak mahu jual pemain bintang kami. Kami telah berusaha menyambung kontrak mereka kerana kami mahu kekalkan dan perkuatkan skuad ini.
"Apa yang saya boleh katakan ialah saya mahu mengekalkan pemain terbaik kami."
Torres dan Gerrard adalah antara dua pemain termahal dunia dan Manchester City sanggup berbelanja lebih £100 juta (RM541 juta) untuk membawa mereka ke Eastlands. - Agensi

[EPL] Vermaelen: Arsenal must tighten up


Thomas Vermaelen believes Arsenal must stop giving away stupid goals if they are to maintain their Premier League title challenge.
The Gunners missed the chance to close right up on leaders Chelsea, whose match was postponed, when they were held to a 2-2 draw by an impressive Everton side at a snowy Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
But for a stoppage-time equaliser from substitute Tomas Rosicky, it would have been the visitors who were celebrating three hard-earned points.
Arsenal were exposed at the back when Leon Osman made the most of a free run in the six-yard box to head home Landon Donovan's corner, while the hosts were then caught on the break with eight minutes left by Steven Pienaar.
Vermaelen feels such lapses in concentration could ultimately prove costly for Arsene Wenger's men, now three points off the pace, but having played the same number of games.
"We are still there [in the title race]," he told BBC Sport.
"We remain in the top three and we have to be confident in our next few games."
Vermaelen added: "The [bad weather] is not to blame because the pitch was very good.
"We are disappointed because we were controlling and dictating the second half.
"Okay, we were not so good in the first half, we could not play our game and we conceded two stupid goals."
Arsenal are waiting on news of Denilson's injury, after the midfielder - just returned from a back problem - fell to the ground during the closing stages and had to be carried off.
Wenger described the situation as "mysterious", but the 21-year-old was walking freely after the match and remained hopeful of being fit in time to face Bolton on Sunday.
Captain Cesc Fabregas is expected to be available again following a hamstring problem for the visit to the Reebok Stadium, which will be the first match in charge for new Bolton manager Owen Coyle.
With Alex Song away at the African Nations Cup, some of the younger Arsenal players have a chance to stake their claim.
Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey was below his recent impressive form against Everton, while Spain youth international Fran Merida was a late replacement for Denilson.

Namum begitu, gosip perpindahan tidak dapat lari apabila musim perpindahan kembali di buka.. Berikut adalah gosip perpindahan pasukan2 di dalam EPL :






Arsenal:
-Sol Campbell(in - free)
-Philleppe Senderos(out)


Liverpool
- Maxi Rodriguez (in - Atl. Madrid)

[MSL] Kemenangan bakar semangat Kedah


ALOR SETAR - Meskipun masih terlalu awal untuk mengukur kekuatan pasukan bola sepak Kedah pada musim ini, namun kemenangan 3-0 ke atas Johor, kelmarin memberi amaran bahawa cabaran Sang Kenari tidak harus dipandang mudah.
Kemenangan bergaya dalam aksi sulung Liga Super itu menghadirkan keyakinan kepada penyokong Hijau Kuning bahawa sentuhan ketua jurulatih yang baru, Ahmad Yusof mungkin mampu mengembalikan kejayaan bagi pasukan yang pernah bergelar juara treble berganda itu.
Kehadiran penyerang Mohd. Azlan Ismail turut dilihat berupaya memperkemaskan bahagian depan skuad Sang Kenari yang pada musim lalu sering kali dihantui dengan masalah ketumpulan jentera serangan.
Ahmad bagaimanapun enggan pasukannya hanyut dibuai kemenangan sulung berkenaan kerana menyedari saingan Liga Malaysia 2010 baru bermula dan perjalanan Hijau Kuning untuk mengulangi kejayaan seperti yang dikecapi pada musim 2007 dan 2008 masih panjang.
Sambil mengakui pembukaan musim 2010 bagi Kedah berjalan seperti yang diharapkan, ketua jurulatih berusia 49 tahun itu melihat masih ada ruang yang perlu diperbaiki oleh anak buahnya jika mahu mencabar sebarang kejuaraan musim ini.
"Kita mempunyai sasaran sendiri dan menyedari saingan liga pasti lebih getir pada musim ini. Apa yang Kedah mahu lakukan ialah mengambil satu perlawanan ke satu perlawanan," katanya ketika dihubungi Utusan Malaysia, semalam.
Pada perlawanan di Stadium Larkin, kelmarin Mohd. Azlan muncul wira Kedah apabila menjaringkan hatrik pada minit ke-32, 80 dan 86 untuk meletakkan pasukannya sebagai pendahulu dalam perlawanan pembukaan musim baru.
Mengulas mengenai perlawanan itu, Ahmad berpuas hati kerana anak buahnya berjaya memanfaatkan peluang gol untuk membenam pendatang baru Liga Super tersebut.
"Saya melihat perlawanan itu adalah seimbang. Cuma apabila kita mendapat peluang, kita berjaya menjaringkan gol.
"Kem Kedah perlu bersyukur dengan kemenangan ini kerana permulaan yang kita rancang dan harap menjadi kenyataan," katanya.
Sang Kenari akan menentang naib juara Liga Super musim lalu, Perlis di Stadium Darul Aman, Rabu ini.
