Leicester may have Premier League title advantage, admits Manuel Pellegrini

first_img Press Association The Chilean recognises City’s quest for the quadruple will see the games pile up. City eased into the FA Cup fifth round with Saturday’s 4-0 win at Aston Villa, having already reached the League Cup final and Champions League knock-out stages. Leicester have only 15 league games left and City will play 27 matches if they go all the way in every competition – more with FA Cup replays – a nd Pellegrini conceded Claudio Ranieri’s leaders, who they welcome to the Etihad on Saturday, may have the edge. “If you ask me if I want to be still in all four competitions, then the answer is yes, but if you are saying if it is easier when you play less games then maybe,” he said, ahead of Tuesday’s game at Sunderland, with City three points behind Leicester. “It’s a view about Leicester but I’m focusing more on my team. “(In the last six weeks) we’ve got to the final of one cup and we have progressed in the other. We could be top of the table after the next two games depending on how we play. So if we win the next two games it’s probably impossible to have been better.” Kelechi Iheanacho scored a hat-trick in Saturday’s victory and he is set to be included in Pellegrini’s Champions League squad ahead of Tuesday’s registration deadline. But the 19-year-old is likely to be dropped in favour of Sergio Aguero for City’s trip to the Stadium of Light, with David Silva also set to return. “Well, both of them are fit so probably (they will start). We have to decide,” added Pellegrini. Iheanacho, though, insisted he will be ready when called on. Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has hinted Leicester have an advantage in the title race. He added: “I need to build confidence now in order to play and that’s what I’m working on. There’s no need for me to fear anything because I’m a professional footballer, but I need to build my confidence to play.” Saturday’s defeat, rounded off by Raheem Sterling’s goal, left bottom club Villa to focus on their survival bid. Boss Remi Garde is yet to make a signing ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline and a move for Hajduk Split goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic collapsed after an appeal over his work permit was rejected. But Garde remains hopeful they can revive the deal in the summer. “Hopefully, yes,” he said. “It’s a disappointment because we thought that we could sign him. I have not too many details on that. I’ve got some details but it’s not for me to reveal it to tell you.” last_img read more

Clippers can’t beat depleted Heat, have nine-game home winning streak snapped

first_img“We just got our (butt) kicked,” Williams said. “We didn’t play hard for four quarters.”To add insult to the situation, Rivers was called for a pair of technical fouls within 15 seconds in the fourth quarter and was ejected. He seemed shocked by the second technical and left the floor with a shrug and 7:17 on the clock. Assistant Coach Rex Kalamian took over on the sideline.“I can’t explain them,” Rivers said. “I was saying (the call) was awful. I didn’t know you get a (technical) foul when the official is on the other side of the floor.“But listen,” he added, “we played poorly.”The Heat shot 43.5 percent from the floor and finished 13 for 39 from 3-point range. The Clippers made only 37.1 percent of their shots and went 7 for 29 from deep.“This is a bad loss for us,” said Tobias Harris, who led the Clippers with 20 points on 8-19 shooting. “They stumped us with the zone and we were unable to make shots or get stops.”Harris also picked up his second technical foul in as many games, this time for signaling for a replay following a Bam Adebayo tip-in.“We’ve got to keep our composure,” he said. “It was rough, three (technical) fouls. We were frustrated and they blew the whistles.”The Heat controlled the first half, building a lead as large as 13 by shooting 9 for 22 from deep (four of those 3s belonged to Wade) and 22 of 24 from the free-throw line.The Clippers, meanwhile, made only four of their 17 3-point attempts in the first half, though they did convert 18 of their 20 free-throw looks.Not everything fell in Miami’s favor early. Already without Josh Richardson — who was a game-time scratch due to right shoulder impingement — as well as Hassan Whiteside, Goran Dragic, Wayne Ellington and Dion Waiters, the Heat lost Johnson with about five minutes left in the first quarter.Johnson suffered a left hip contusion, the team said. Although X-rays were negative, he did not return, leaving Miami with eight active players. Johnson had eight points in his first start this season before he went out.The Clippers got back in it with a 25-15 run to close the second quarter, including Harris hammering home an authoritative dunk — and drawing a foul — off a quick pass from Beverley off an inbound play with 1:37 to go. Harris celebrated with Montrezl Harrell-esque emotion, hollering and clenching his fists before making the free throw to draw the Clippers to to 58-55.A Williams lay-in and free throw followed by an Avery Bradley layup and the Clippers were up 60-58, which represented their first lead since they were up 6-5.A couple more 3-pointers by Wade (and a free throw by Derrick Jones Jr.) gave the visitors the halftime advantage, 65-62.The Clippers pulled even again in the third quarter on a Harris jumper that tied it 85-85. A 3-pointer from Mike Scott made it 88-85, but Miami recovered and took a 91-90 lead into the final quarter.“Usually we bring intensity, energy, defense and we didn’t bring these three things tonight,” said forward Danilo Gallinari, who finished 12 points and 10 rebounds. “These three things are our DNA; if we don’t bring it every night, we can lose every game.” PreviousLos Angeles Clippers forward Tobias Harris, left, dunks as Miami Heat forward Kelly Olynyk defends during the first half of an NBA basketball game, Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018, in Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — It figured to be a game of attrition. The home team with one of the NBA’s best benches would, eventually, have the upper hand on the team with only nine — actually, after the Miami Heat’s Tyler Johnson first-quarter hip injury — eight players available.But with chants of “Let’s Go Heat” emanating from the Staples Center crowd, Miami wouldn’t go away and, confounded by a zone defense, the Clippers failed to find a rhythm and floundered.Against an Eastern Conference foe on the second game of a back-to-back, the Clippers missed 3-pointers, gave up 3s, got out-hustled, outrebounded and then unraveled all the way in the fourth quarter.And they lost — 121-98 — falling for the third time in four games and for just the second time at home this season, snapping a nine-game Staples Center winning streak. “There were so many fundamental breakdowns tonight that will never allow you to win the game,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said. “If we don’t come and play with great intensity and play hard, we’re not like some of the other teams. They can still win, (but) we’re just not one of those teams. For us, our energy and how we play is part of what we have to do to win. And we just didn’t do that tonight.”Dwyane Wade delivered for his vocal contingent of fans in his final visit to play the Clippers before he retires (the Lakers host the Heat on Monday, Wade’s last scheduled stop in L.A.)He became the 15th active player to play 1,000 regular-season games, and commemorated the occasion by scoring a game-high 25 points, shooting 5 for 10 from deep.“He’s still Dwyane Wade,” said Lou Williams, the Clippers reserve guard who had 18 points on 6-of-16 shooting. “Kobe (Bryant) had 60 in his last game. These guys have super powers, bro. You like to see it on TV, but they’re gonna get you sometimes.”The Clippers (16-9) appeared flat and out of sync for most of the game, especially in the final quarter, when the Heat (11-14) outscored them, 30-8 — after going on a 21-2 run to start the quarter.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
