No offer, from Usmanov or elsewhere, can get him to sell as it could be seen as an admission of failure and, more damming, a validation of his detractors that he bought into Arsenal ultimately as a way to profit off its back. United's Josh Harrop, 21, scored the opening goal against Palace on his league debut while 16-year-old substitute Angel Gomes became the youngest player to feature for the Old Trafford club in the Premier League era.

Thousands of pounds have been won in bets on Chelsea captain John Terry being substituted in the 26th minute of his final appearance at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. But his cup record is less impressive, with the Italian Super Cups won in 2012 and 2013 the only managerial medals collected.

The man does not wont for emotion. "This is what I know of myself". Come here, I felt at peace. "Happy to be here and happy to compete, and it's nice to walk away with a trophy". "Overall, it was a pretty good week, but obviously I'm disappointed that I didn't get the win". It was a week that included a 63 and no scores at par or worse.

The Cavs still lead the series, 2-1, with Game 4 Tuesday in Cleveland (8:30 p.m., TNT). I've watched a lot of LeBron James playoff performances, and last night's-which I absolutely saw, from beginning to end; I really can not stress this enough-might have been the worst one.

Forsberg's line produced Nashville's only 5-on-5 goal of the game. Perhaps he'll take another one this spring? "I had no idea it happened", Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm said. It took until the 12:46 mark of the second period for either team to finally break through for a score. "It's hard to describe and it's an awesome feeling to win this, and we're not done", Neal said.

Now here comes Game 4, with James picking up personal fouls at a pace commonly seen by his defenders. We'll have scoring updates in the box score above, as well as updates and analysis in the comments.

Kyrie Irving had not yet heated up, and the lead hovered above double figures but seemed oh-so-close to creeping upwards of 20 points if the Celtics did a better job of making open shots in the first half. 1 pick when draft day rolls around. As Keith mentioned it took the rest of the roster firing on all cylinders and Marcus Smart having an nearly statistically impossible shooting night for the Celtics to scrape by with the win, plus that last shot from Avery Bradley was probably ...

The result ensured the Blues became the first side in a 38-game season to win 30 games. The 36-year-old defender retained his place, making his 717th appearance and last as a Chelsea player at Stamford Bridge. Eden Hazard also found a way in through Chelsea's victory over Sunderland .

But me personally, I didn't have it. The report says that the fan was ushered away from James and there was no further altercation. Trying to figure out why James had rabbit ears or why he was so combative over a reasonable question is as confounding as the way LeBron disappeared at such a crucial moment while being held scoreless in the fourth quarter.

However, Guardiola refused to comment on the future of City's out-of-contract players, including Yaya Toure, Bacary Sagna , Gael Clichy and goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

King will probably be mocked once again a year from now, when the Celtics - again - get Brooklyn's first-round pick.

Take nothing for granted but it was special today". When he has been fit, the 27-year-old has regularly been second-fiddle to Roberto Firmino - though he insists his future on Merseyside is not a topic of debate. "I just think tactically Wenger has lost it. I respect Stan Kroenke a lot", Wenger said. "The club has always considered that pricing for the Europa League would be different from the Champions League so we have reviewed our approach for next season and have applied a discount ...

While it was far from an ideal day for Arsenal , for Chelsea it was one to remember as they lifted the title at Stamford Bridge and farewelled skipper John Terry with a 5-1 win over bottom-placed Sunderland. "It's very sad because for 20 years we were in it", Wenger said. "It is the technical department who is responsible for that". They finished with 75 points, four better than past year when they came second, but managed only two wins from 10 against the top six.

Brad Stevens is a huge part of that, and it was his out-of-bounds play that freed up Bradley for the game-winning dagger. He is the ATO savant after all, and he proved it on the biggest stage of his career with surgical precision. "Same spot, same man". "My adrenaline is still going", he said.

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien disagrees, instead expecting teams to be more aggressive in overtime. The Arizona Cardinals played a full 15-minute overtime against the Seattle Seahawks last season.

Stevens reiterated before Game 4 that Thomas will not play again this season, even if the Celtics push the defending champion Cavaliers beyond five games in the Eastern Conference finals.
