LEICESTER CITY VS EVERTON

first_imgLEICESTER (4-4-1-1)SCHMEICHEL,SIMPSON, MORGAN, WASILEWSKI, FUCHS,MAHREZ, KING, KANTE, ALBRIGHTON,OKAZAKI,VARDYEVERTON (4-2-3-1)NIASSE,CLEVERLEY, BARKLEY, LENNON,BARRY, McCARTHY,BAINES, PENNINGTON, STONES, BESIC,HOWARDThe party has started. On Monday, Spurs’ 2-2 draw at Chelsea meant that Leicester City are the new – and most unexpected – Barclays Premier League champions.It is the Foxes’ first top-flight title in their 132-year history and a remarkable achievement given that they began the season with odds of 5,000-1 to win the Premier League.They can also boast the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Player of the Year in Riyad Mahrez and the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year in Jamie Vardy.They will receive the Premier League trophy after what is their final home game of the season and will be determined to extend their unbeaten run to 11 matches having lost just three all season.Everton, meanwhile, ended a seven-game run without a league win with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth last weekend with defender Leighton Baines stealing the winner.Everton have won just 10 games and need to win two of their remaining three – they finish the season away to Sunderland and at home to Norwich – to avoid their fewest home successes since they won only nine (in 2003-04 and 1997-98).When these teams met in December, Leicester won 3-2, thanks to two penalties from Riyad Mahrez, to confirm their place at the top of the Premier League at Christmas.This fixture has a habit of throwing up draws. No fewer than six of the nine games at Leicester against Everton have finished all square including the last five. Last season Chris Wood stole a late equaliser for Leicester in a 2-2 draw.Leicester are without Danny Drinkwater after the England midfielder was sent-off in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United. And Robert Huth is also banned after receiving a three-game suspension for pulling the hair of Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini. But Vardy, who has missed the last two through suspension, returns to the attack.Everton miss the banned Funes Mori so Matt Pennington should continue at the back. Brendan Galloway and Gerard Deulofeu are still missing while there are tests for Gareth Barry and Seamus Coleman.last_img read more

Brothers get life terms in murder

first_imgA second jury convicted the Robinsons of murder and robbery in October 2002. Two were sentenced to life in prison without parole two months later. An appellate panel from the 2nd District Court of Appeal reversed the murder convictions in October 2004, saying a Pasadena Superior Court judge erred in excluding evidence that someone else could have been responsible for Hussain’s death. Avila said jurors were allowed to hear the omitted evidence in the third trial, which took less than two weeks to complete. “It took some time, but I think the victim’s family finally found justice,” Avila said Friday after the hearing.No family members testified at the sentencing. Hussain, 51, was shot twice about 12:25 a.m. Nov. 23, 1998, in the 7-Eleven store at 1802 Huntington Drive in Duarte. molly.okeon@sgvn.com LOS ANGELES – Two brothers were sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of a Duarte 7-Eleven store clerk during a 1998 robbery. On March 9, a jury found Cory Robinson, 26, and his 27-year-old brother, Brandale Robinson, guilty of first-degree murder in the Nov. 23, 1998, shooting death of Syed Hussain, a father of five. Jurors also convicted the brothers of second-degree robbery and determined that Cory Robinson fired the handgun that killed Hussain. Both men had an additional three years tacked onto their sentence for the robbery. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Curtis B. Rappe also added another 25 years to life to Cory Robinson’s prison sentence for discharging the weapon. Rappe denied a motion for a new trial for the brothers. Attorneys for both have already filed papers to have the convictions appealed. This was the third trial for the Robinsons. The first trial ended in a hung jury, with nine of the 12 jurors voting guilty, said L.A. County Deputy District Attorney Victor Avila.

Struck gas line causes leak at 117 Avenue and 100 Street

first_imgThe Fort St. John Fire Department was dispatched after the contractor contacted Pacific Northern Gas.“We responded and quarantined off the area until PNG was able to dig up both sides of the gas line, crimp it off, and make it safe for everybody,” says Fort St. John firefighter Sean Murphy.While nobody was injured as result of the accident, Murphy says firefighters remained on-scene to mitigate the risk it posed – such as a vehicle igniting a spark.- Advertisement -“There’s always an explosive risk and fire risk when there’s natural gas involved,” Murphy goes on to explain. “When there’s the initial release, we want to make sure that we find out which way the wind is going, and make sure that nobody goes into the area…driving a vehicle.”PNG managed to secure the leak at 9:44 a.m. – approximately an hour after receiving the call.last_img read more

Arsenal suffer Maitland-Niles blow

first_imgIt is a blow both to the player and the club as big things had been expected of him at first team level this season in manager Unai Emery’s first campaign in charge.“Ainsley has sustained a small fracture to his left fibula and will be out for six to eight weeks,” Arsenal said on the club’s official website.Better news for Emery if that he could be in a position to consider selecting left-back Nacho Monreal and Danny Welbeck for the daunting trip to London rivals Chelsea on Saturday as both are back in full training.The longer-term injured defensive duo of Bosnian international Sead Kolasinac and club captain French veteran Laurent Koscielny are improving too.The former is likely to return to training from his knee problem in October, while Koscielny is continuing his recovery from Achilles surgery which cost him his place in the World Cup finals squad and ultimately a winners medal.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s England Under-20 World Cup winning midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles will be out for up to two months with a fractured left leg © AFP / Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 16 – Arsenal’s highly-regarded midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles could be out for as long as two months after suffering a “small fracture” to his left leg, the club said Thursday.The 20-year-old — a member of the England side that won the U20 World Cup last year — suffered the injury in a challenge with Kuyle Walker during Arsenal’s opening Premier League clash against champions Manchester City, a 2-0 defeat last Sunday.last_img read more
