AFC Bournemouth vs Liverpool

Bournemouth’s shaky home record will be put to the test by Liverpool on Sunday as the Reds look to put recent disappointments behind them and climb back into the top four of the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have drawn their last two Premier League outings and missed out on crucial points against West Bromwich Albion and Merseyside rivals Everton, leaving them fifth heading into Week 18.

Meanwhile, the Cherries have failed to win either of their last two home matchups, and only Swansea City (seven) have recorded fewer points than Bournemouth’s haul of eight from eight games at the Vitality Stadium.

Eddie Howe’s men are without a win in their last five and can rejuvenate their campaign with victory over Sunday’s visitors, although the Reds will also be eager to get back to winning ways on the south coast.

Read on for a preview of Sunday’s Premier League encounter, complete with live-stream information and all the latest team news.

Liverpool’s injury list prior to the Bournemouth trip is a rather lengthy one, and defenders Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Matip and Alberto Moreno are three who look sure to miss the away visit.

Emre Can will be suspended for the Cherries collision after picking up his fifth yellow card of the campaign against West Brom. Injury analyst Ben Dinnery provided words from Klopp, who hinted at Daniel Sturridge’s potential return from a hamstring strain in time for Sunday’s duel.

The big absence for Bournemouth remains defender Tyrone Mings, who has been coping with a back injury and is back in training, although a recent Twitter post suggests a return is still premature:

Heart of Midlothian vs Celtic

However, Hearts have not beaten the reigning champions, who are five points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership, in their last 18 league games but Levein thinks one team will have to end their impressive record soon.

“All of us are trying to do it,” Levein said. “We will have to rely on a few things, us being very good on the day and Celtic not being quite at their best.

“A couple of teams have come close recently, but hopefully we can be the ones that stop this run.”

Hibernian were the latest team to hold Celtic to a 2-2 draw with an impressive fightback to share the spoils at Easter Road.

However, Celtic’s Champions League form tells a different story, as they have lost all three of their group matches to Paris Saint-Germain, Anderlecht and Bayern Munich leaving them joint bottom of Group B.

When asked if Celtic look invincible, Levein said: “I don’t think so, I think they have just got very good players. It is a great achievement of course and they have to be commended for the way they have managed to keep their focus for so many matches.”

West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester United

Fresh from a determined win over Bournemouth in midweek, Manchester United will hope to keep their slim title chances alive on Sunday when they travel to West Bromwich Albion.

Having lost the Manchester derby, Jose Mourinho would’ve been delighted to see his players take three points against the Cherries, even if their overall display left a lot to be desired.

If they’re to chalk up another win this weekend you sense the Red Devils will need to improve. While West Brom have yet to click into gear going forward under new manager Alan Pardew, there were positive signs from the Baggies defensively on Wednesday when they held Liverpool to a 0-0 draw.

Team News

West Brom: Pardew will hope to have Nacer Chadli and Matt Phillips available to provide some spark in the final third, although both wingers are doubts for the contest. Additionally, Gareth Barry, Craig Dawson and James Morrison are all missing.

Likely XI: Ben Foster; Allan Nyom, Ahmed Hegazi, Jonny Evans, Kieran Gibbs; Jake Livermore, Claudio Yacob, Grzegorz Krychowiak; Jay Rodriguez, Salomon Rondon, James McClean

Manchester United: Eric Bailly and Michael Carrick are both long-term absentees for Mourinho, whereas Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini are fighting to be fit. Paul Pogba will serve the final match of his three-game suspension here.

Likely XI: David De Gea; Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Ashley Young; Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic; Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial; Romelu Lukaku

Lawler vs Dos Anjos

Lawler vs Dos Anjos Live Stream Online,UFC Fight Night is getting set to land at the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Canada, this weekend and it will feature fights between some heavy hitters on the main card. Robbie Lawler, Rafael dos Anjos, Ricardo Lamas and Josh Emmett highlight a fight card that may not be putting titles on the line, but promises to have some good — and important — fights nonetheless.

Lawler vs Dos Anjos

Nearly 17 years after his professional debut, Robbie Lawler is trying to hold off the end yet again. In a career that has spanned the near-death and ensuing explosion of MMA, Lawler has authored more than one of his own resurrections after brief periods of doubt about his future. The latest came in July, when, coming off his first-round knockout loss to Tyron Woodley, he rebounded with a unanimous decision over Donald Cerrone.

At Saturday’s UFC on FOX 26, Lawler, who is somehow still just 35 years years old, faces Rafael dos Anjos in a bid for a rematch with Woodley.

Just 18 months ago, the two opponents were simultaneously champions in different divisions — Lawler at welterweight and dos Anjos at lightweight. That’s hardly the only similarity between the two. They are both southpaws. They both favor pressure styles. They both average around 3.5 significant strikes landed per minute, per FightMetric. They both have wins over their one common opponent, Cerrone.

Their paths to the top wildly diverged, however. While Lawler was anointed from the beginning as a future champion, dos Anjos clawed his way into prominence one win at a time.

The two meet in Winnipeg on Saturday with the same personal stakes. Lawler (ranked No. 2) and dos Anjos (ranked No. 4) seek to keep their names in the championship conversation in a division that recently grinded to a standstill.

From an action standpoint, this is the kind of fight to help the division break out of its funk. Let me lay a stunning statistic on you: Lawler has fought 30 times for major organizations (including the UFC, PRIDE, EliteXC and Strikeforce). That action spans 5 hours, 26 minutes and 36 seconds. In all that time, Lawler has never attempted a single submission.

I bring you this statistic as evidence that Lawler’s first, second and last plans involve bludgeoning his opponents until they can no longer stand. In all that time, is it possible that it’s never crossed his mind to throw up his legs for an armbar from the bottom or wrap up a rear naked choke when an opponent gives up his back? It’s just more evidence that Lawler’s “Ruthless” moniker fits him perfectly.

In the most current part of his career, Lawler (28-11, 1 NC) has adopted a philosophy of setting that kind of expectation from the opening bell.

In his most recent match with Cerrone, for instance, he swarmed right out of the gate with a barrage of kicks and punches, both from the clinch and from outside. He walked Cerrone down repeatedly, forcing him to fight off his back foot while Lawler loaded up with straights and hooks. It was an encapsulation of Lawler at his best, all pressure and power.

It’s a tack he’s taken no matter the stakes or his opponent’s strengths; he came out much the same way in his championship-winning performance against Johny Hendricks in December 2014, with a blistering first round.

Lawler is at his best when he’s pushing forward, bouncing and gliding on his feet, changing the level of his targets. Yet he doesn’t always do that. Against Cerrone, he targeted a respectable 25.6 percent of his significant strikes at areas below the head, according to FightMetric. In doing so, he gave Cerrone plenty to consider and adjust to.

But other times, he becomes a head-hunter. Against Rory MacDonald, for instance, 95.5 percent of his significant strike attempts were to the head. It eventually paid off as Lawler finished with a fifth-round TKO, but the late finish saved his reign; he trailed on all three judges’ scorecards heading into the final frame.

In dos Anjos (27-9), Lawler has found an opponent that will be more than willing to meet his aggression. At 155, dos Anjos was a champion but thus far at welterweight, he’s had two fights, defeating both Tarec Saffiedine and Neil Magny.

As previously mentioned, dos Anjos has a similar approach to fighting as Lawler does; however, his method of attack is quite different from Lawler. While Lawler is mostly a kickboxer, with a heavy emphasis on boxer, dos Anjos features much more variety. A fight that is instructive of his diversity was his stunning destruction of Anthony Pettis in capturing the UFC lightweight championship in March 2015.

In that fight, dos Anjos checked all the boxes. He had volume, throwing 233 strikes over the course of the fight. He featured variety, with 44 landed strikes to the head, 27 to the body and 19 to the legs. He changed the plane of the fight, taking Pettis down nine times. It was a tour de force of game planning, adjustments and execution.

At his best, dos Anjos is that kind of fighter, both unpredictable and unrelenting. In some ways, he has to be because he is not gifted with natural fight-ending power. Through his career, he has only five knockouts, but three of them have come since the start of 2014. He’s worked around that by valuing the compilation of strikes and their compounding effects.

Dos Anjos does like to walk opponents down and crowd them, and he’s just as comfortable working from close distance or going all the way into the clinch. But those two spots are his comfort zone. He likes to be inside or all-the-way inside. That is in perfect contrast to Lawler, who doesn’t mind firing off uppercuts and elbows from the clinch, but prefers to back his opponent up to the cage before unloading fire from striking distance.

There are a couple of techniques to look out for in this fight. For dos Anjos, it’s his wrestling entries. It’s unlikely that he plans to stand with Lawler for 25 minutes. At best, he takes the fight down—a tall order since Hendricks only took Lawler down on seven of 27 tries over two fights. At worst, dos Anjos will hope that forcing Lawler to expend energy defending these attempts slows him down late, which could well happen.

For Lawler, it’s the hook and kick to the body. When he defeated Hendricks—the only southpaw he’s fought in the last seven years—It was probably his most valuable tool. While he specifically decided to break Hendricks down from the base as a response to the then-champ’s longstanding weight-cutting issues, Lawler could use the same tactic here to slow dos Anjos’ advances while capitalizing on his own size advantage.

Lawler, at 5-foot-11 and with a 74-inch reach, has a three-inch height and four-inch advantage. That plays well with his favored strategies. dos Anjos will want to crowd him and obstruct his power. Whoever wins that fight within the fight has the upper hand.

There’s still plenty more to consider. Who can better carry the pace through five rounds? Who will be more comfortable in the rare southpaw vs. southpaw matchup? Can dos Anjos take the fight to the ground? Will Lawler finally try a submission?!

OK, the last one of those we probably know the answer to. Lawler won’t be brought to the ground, and that be a main cause of dos Anjos’ struggle. Lawler has the fight-changing power, and a few tastes of it will further make dos Anjos reluctant to get inside. That damage adds up and Lawler walks away with a unanimous decision.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi 2017

Star Wars: The Last Jedi 2017 has been certified fresh, according to Rotten Tomatoes, and met universal acclaim as per Metacritic. Our own review of the movie also praised it, and described it as a “brave episode”. Now that the film is out in theatres, I’m happy to report that it’s not just the critics who like the movie, but fans too will have a lot of fun with this film. It’s fun, it has plenty of lighthearted moments, a lot of tension, dramatic reversals, and good old-fashioned over the top space battles. In short, everything I was hoping for from a Star Wars movie.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi 2017 Full Movie Online

Initial release: December 13, 2017 (Sweden)
Director: Rian Johnson
Music composed by: John Williams
Screenplay: Rian Johnson
Producers: Kathleen Kennedy, Ram Bergman, Lawrence Kasdan, Simon Kinberg
Star Wars: The Last Jedi 2017

Fan theorists were certain that Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi would be to The Empire Strikes Back what JJ Abrams’ The Force Awakens was to the original Star Wars, a movie full of Jedi training sessions on remote planets, rebel backs against the wall and darkling, curveball plot twists. In the end that was only part of the story, for this was a movie that gave us, in the words of Luke Skywalker in one of its earliest trailers, “so much more”. New Force powers, abundant alien creatures like nothing we’ve seen before, and a complex, yet satisfying return for the galaxy’s greatest hero.

So what did you think of this latest episode in the long-running space saga? Was Luke’s triumphant and poignant last hurrah your personal highlight? Did Snoke deserve to be written out so ruthlessly, a mere pawn for Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren to access his full dark side inner rage? And what was going on with Leia’s space walk? Here’s a chance to give your verdict on the movie’s key talking points.

Inner rage ... Adam Driver as Kylo Ren.

Rian Johnson is not known for sparky one-liners (though 2008’s The Brothers Bloom had its moments). Of the American director’s best-known films, Brick was slick and sharp as a vintage sheath knife in its high-school noir stylings, if not exactly funny, while Looper was brooding and serious from the opening credits. And so it comes as something of a shock that The Last Jedi is packed with comedy thunderbolts designed to provide sweet relief from the horrors of space war, while occasionally papering over the cracks of a creaking, multi-stranded plot (just like Marvel then – well, Lucasfilm and the comic book studio are both owned by Disney).

Johnson even resorts to barely concealed tomfoolery to avoid having to deal with the six million dangling threads left to him by The Force Awakens’ JJ Abrams. What will Luke Skywalker do with the lightsaber – once his dear old dead Sith Lord dad’s – that has been returned to him from another world, we all wondered for two years. And why did the Jedi Knight’s laser sword “call” to Daisy Ridley’s Rey last time out at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana? We’ll never know now, because Skywalker used his first 10 seconds of screen time to chuck the weapon over a cliff, as if dismissing the enigma for another day.

Let the past be the past

Star Wars’ traditional penchant for major twists and Abrams’ refusal to give much away in The Force Awakens has encouraged a billion fan theories and YouTube channels dedicated to dreaming up back stories for Rey, Snoke, Poe Dameron et al. But the only tale Johnson seemed interesting in telling in The Last Jedi was about Kylo Ren’s teenage battles with Skywalker after the latter discovered that his student had been turned to the dark side. We didn’t even get to meet the other Knights of Ren – though we can perhaps assume these were the fellow Jedi padawan who Skywalker said had left with Ben Solo after their spat on Ahch-To.

Ren suggested during the scene in Snoke’s throne room that Rey’s parents were nobodies, and the one-time Jakku scavenger looked as if she believed him. Did you buy this anti-climactic epiphany? Or is the big reveal still being saved for part three?

How about Snoke? Will we ever know who he was now that the giant alien freak has been rudely cut in half by his student in the dark arts? Some may turn to Star Wars novels and comic books to find out more, but (on the big screen at least) Andy Serkis’ tortoise-faced First Order big bad turned out to be pretty small fry.

Star Wars surely needs to keep evolving if it is to last another 40 years. But the introduction of what we’ll call Force “projection” in The Last Jedi throws up all manner of potential problems. If Luke was able to project himself across the galaxy to Crait while never actually leaving Ahch-To, then what abilities might even more powerful Jedi have been able to master? Perhaps Obi-Wan Kenobi never fought Vader in 1977’s Star Wars, but simply “projected” himself all the way from his cave on Tatooine. He might still be there, enjoying his retirement and doing Taco Thursday each week with the local Jawas for all we know.

Likewise, we can now see that powerful Jedi are able to link psychically across vast distances of space. This, of course, was hinted at in the original trilogy, where Luke and Leia were able to connect. That Rey and Ren appear to have upgraded the process from a nebulous nagging feeling to ultra-HD video comms suggests either that the original trilogies’ heroes were not doing it right or that the next generation is somehow far more powerful than any of its predecessors.

We’ll never get to find out what other abilities Leia might have picked up since the original trilogy, but it was exciting to see that she’s capable of using the Force to transfer herself across dead space and come out the other side just about alive. Fisher played the role of the Resistance’s leader with rare charm and considerable humility. It seems likely the princess turned general will now get an off-screen death in Episode IX, which is certainly preferable to the mo-cap ghosted alternative.

NHL 100 Classic 2017 Live Stream Online,The Ottawa Senators can’t be distracted by the spectacle of playing in the NHL 100 Classic on Saturday evening. Having won only two of 14 games, the team can’t afford to get lost in the experience of playing outdoors, especially facing the Montreal Canadiens, an Atlantic divisional rival.

NHL 100 Classic 2017

The NHL’s centennial celebration continues Saturday with the NHL 100 Classic, an outdoor matchup between the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa. The action begins at 7 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally in the United States on NBCSN.

The first outdoor game of the 2017-18 season also helps celebrate the history of the sport. The league chose Senators-Canadiens as the matchup in honor of one of the first two games in NHL history on Dec. 19, 1917. On that day, the original Senators faced the Canadiens, while the Montreal Wanderers faced the Toronto Arenas.

“To launch our next 100 years, we believe it is only right to bring the Canadiens and the Senators back together,” commissioner Gary Bettman said when the NHL 100 Classic was first announced in March.

The history will definitely be the main selling point of a game that’s otherwise between two middling Eastern Conference foes.

The Senators have just two wins in their past 14 games dating back to mid-November. That brutal stretch has coincided with a slump from superstar defenseman Erik Karlsson, who has two points and a minus-18 rating over the past 14 games. Amid that stretch, Karlsson also publicly discussed his 2019 free agency, which led the Senators to request his no-trade list.

The Canadiens have been having a better time of late with a 6-2-1 record over their past nine games. Carey Price has returned to form after an ugly start to the season, and the offense has shown signs of life other than a rough recent stretch against Western Conference opponents.

If anything, the most interesting aspect of the game itself may be the outdoor factor. The predicted temperature at puck drop on Saturday is three degrees Fahrenheit, or minus-16 degrees Celsius. That’s going to be brutal, and The Athletic’s Pierre LeBrun says there are no plans to postpone the game despite that forecast.

NHL and NHLPA officials will meet before the game to determine if playing conditions are acceptable. It’s worth remembering the 2011 Heritage Classic, where the Flames and Canadiens played in an estimated temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit, which then-Calgary forward Curtis Glencross called “brutal.”

So things could get weird Saturday evening if the forecast is right and the temperature is near zero degrees Fahrenheit at puck drop, which would likely mean even colder temperatures as the game goes on. If you’re planning to attend, make sure to bundle up.

Middle Tennessee vs Arkansas State

The college football bowl season is upon us. With 39 games spread out over the next two and a half weeks there is plenty of opportunity to add a little bonus to your holiday gift pile. Our bowl picks series will let you know who we think will come out on top against the spread. All lines and totals courtesy of Sportsline. Find all our picks here. All lines are as of the date of publication.

Spread: The Blue Raiders got off to a solid start to the season with a win over Syracuse, but then things trailed off after QB Brent Stockstill got hurt. The Blue Raiders with Stockstill starting were 4-2. Without him, they were 2-4 this season. It also didn’t help that expected top WR Richie James broke his collarbone early in the season and has missed the last seven games. The offense as a whole has averaged a shade under 25 points per game, and both of their top running backs (Brad Anderson and Tavares Thomas) are questionable for this game. That doesn’t bode well, though the defense has been picking up the slack for much of the season holding opponents to just 24 points and 350 yards per game. The offense has been better with Stockstill running the show, averaging 30 points in games he starts.

For Arkansas State, QB Justice Hansen has been the star, averaging over 330 yards passing per game while throwing 34 TD passes to just 15 interceptions. He has the Red Wolves offense ranked in the top 15 in points per game averaging 38.5 per outing. He’s also the team’s second-leading rusher (380 yards, 3.3 YPC) behind Warren Wand (660 yards 5.3 YPC). The Red Wolves use a varied rushing attack so, while Wand is the leader, two other backs have 40 or more carries. The defense has been fairly effective, allowing just under 25 points and 382 yards per game.

In terms of ATS records and trends, Arkansas State went 7-4 against the spread but failed to cover in three of their last four games. Middle Tennessee State covered in five of their 12 games but those were spread fairly evenly throughout the schedule. The biggest trend in favor of the Red Wolves is that Middle Tennesse was just 1-4 ATS as an underdog, while Arkansas State was 5-2 as a favorite. Expect that trend to continue here. Arkansas State -3.5

Total: Neither team has been good about hitting the over in their games this season as Middle Tennessee hit the over just twice and Arkansas State hit four times. Three of those four times have come when the Red Wolves were favored though. The number here is fairly high, but if both teams hit their averages, they could go over. Not sure that will happen though. Under 62.5

Marshall vs Colorado State

Redemption awaits either the Marshall Thundering Herd or the Colorado State Rams in Saturday’s 2017 New Mexico Bowl.

Granted, both teams boast seven wins and one of these teams is undefeated in bowl games dating back to 2009. But the familiar thread between the two programs going into the showdown is an unfortunate one—both face-planted near the end of October and haven’t recovered.

The good news? One last shot at finishing a season strong should have both teams motivated for what could devolve into an offensive-minded affair between two talented quarterbacks with plenty of complementary weapons.

Before things get underway, let’s look at the critical info surrounding the contest.

WR Michael Gallup, Colorado State: One of the nation’s most dangerous receivers, Gallup followed up a 14-touchdown junior season by catching 94 passes for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns. He’s a big, physical target who’s devastating when he gets into a rhythm, ripping up Idaho in the Rams’ bowl game last season with three scores in the shootout loss. He’ll get the ball at least 10 times.

QB Nick Stevens, Colorado State: The veteran overcame his early interception issues — he finished with 10 on the season — and closed out roaring hot, throwing for close to 3,479 yards and 27 touchdowns. While he’s mobile, the 6-3, 215-pound pure passer threw for 445 yards and five scores in last year’s bowl game, and now he’ll turn it loose again.

QB Chase Litton, Marshall: He throws too many interceptions and doesn’t run, but the 6-6, 235-pound, three-year starter isn’t afraid to throw deep. Strangely, Marshall lost the three times this year he cranked out 300 yards or more. Now he has to limit his mistakes after throwing nine interceptions in the last five games.

LB Chase Hancock, Marshall: He became the leader of an improved defense that dominated throughout the Conference USA season. He had 31 tackles over the first three games and closed it out with 18 stops against Southern Mississippi.

Boise State vs Oregon

Oregon and Boise State have met only twice in their history despite their proximity to one another, and you may be surprised to know that Boise State has won both the previous matchups. The most recent meeting came in 2009 during Chip Kelly’s coaching debut with the Ducks, and Chris Petersen’s Broncos won that meeting 19-8. Of course, the most memorable part of that game took place after the game had ended.

Might be stirring things up here, but I studied the handshake between Oregon football coach Mario Cristobal and Boise State coach Bryan Harsin and think there may be some bad blood brewing between the Ducks and Broncos. After all, these two coaches coveted the same job a week or so ago. And only one got it.

First, know that the rest of the final news conference for the 26th Las Vegas Bowl turned into a two-team nap at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Friday. Sorry, but when you stage a rivalry best known for a LeGarrette Blount punch in the city that gave us McGregor v. Mayweather, I’m showing up.

But Friday’s scene was a snooze. Harsin and his star players opened the news conference. They said almost nothing of interest in 16 minutes of lip flapping. Then, Oregon’s Mario Cristobal talked along with his players. They also pretty much said nothing. The moderator tried, I suppose. He called the visitors, “Bronco State,” once. Maybe just to see if anyone was awake. My eyes went immediately to Harsin, the seven-point underdog coach, who sipped water, and sat there like he was waiting for a bus in the middle of the Mojave.
