Wilshere is likely to miss Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Burnley at the Emirates Stadium due to a knee problem and is also a doubt to face Anderlecht in midweek. But France striker Giroud, who fractured his foot against Everton in late August, is on course to rejoin training next month despite having initially been ruled out until the New Year. “He’s eager to play, but that is always the period when the patience of the player is tested. “They feel ready and want to play. Usually they realise only much later they are not completely ready. “I know Theo very well. He’s an intelligent player so he knows as well that he’s not completely there yet.” Arsenal are targeting a third successive victory when they host Burnley with a three-point haul potentially lifting them into the top four. A nine-point gap has opened up on Premier League leaders Chelsea and while Wenger refuses to concede the title race, he knows it will take a sustained assault to make up the ground on Jose Mourinho’s team. “I don’t write us off, let other people do that, but Chelsea are in a strong position at the moment,” Wenger said. “I believe it would not be realistic to just think now that we’ll catch Chelsea very quickly. “We have to get consistent results to have a chance of coming back. “I’m more focused on the quality of our games and on the consistency of our results before we think about coming back on Chelsea.” Burnley have yet to win in nine Premier League starts this season and Wenger is ready for them to adopt defensive tactics at the Emirates Stadium. “It’s absolutely normal that other teams try to stop us from playing our game. I can understand that completely,” Wenger said. “We want to be good enough to get around that and not allow other teams to stop us playing. “We are good enough, but we know the quality of our passing and our decisions must be better.” Press Association Jack Wilshere has been added to Arsenal’s lengthy injury list but Arsene Wenger is hoping to welcome back Olivier Giroud “miles ahead of schedule” in the coming weeks. “Olivier is miles ahead of schedule. He’s doing very well,” Wenger said. “He’s three weeks ahead of schedule and he will join normal training after the international break. Of course it’s a big boost.” Arsenal have lost Giroud, Laurent Koscielny, Mesut Ozil, David Ospina, Yaya Sanogo, Abou Diaby and Mathieu Debuchy to a variety of ailments and now Wilshere has joined their ranks. Wenger insists the problem is minor and has penciled in the England midfielder to return against Swansea on Sunday week. “There is a slight problem with Wilshere. I don’t think he’ll be available against Burnley,” Wenger said. “It’s very, very short term. He got a kick on his knee. I don’t know if Anderlecht on Tuesday will be too early or not. He’s not training at the moment. Certainly Swansea, yes.” England winger Theo Walcott has been sidelined since January with a serious knee problem, but Wenger will not rush him back against Burnley despite having made his comeback in the reserves. “Theo is not ready yet. He’s been out for too long to start the game. If I can give him some competition I’m happy to do it,” Wenger said.

Mendy has played just 27 minutes in a League Cup tie at third-tier Burton Albion since November and Guardiola has previously spoken about reinforcing his left-back options for next season, suggesting the Frenchman’s future at the club is far from assured. Yet, with Fabian Delph also out injured, he could now be thrown back into the action for the most crucial stretch of City’s season with Guardiola admitting “we don’t have many options.” After facing a Brighton side hoping to reach their first FA Cup final for 36 years, City face Tottenham three times in 10 days in their Champions League quarter-final tie and the Premier League with trips to Crystal Palace, Manchester United and Burnley also to come before the end of the month. If Mendy is to play a big part, he will need minutes at Wembley this weekend to get up to match sharpness with Guardiola unconvinced by right-back Danilo’s ability to switch sides as he did for the final hour against Cardiff. “He (Zinchenko) is important for us. He knows the way we want to play,” added Guardiola. “Danilo fought a lot in that position, but it is not his natural one. We will find a solution.” Sergio Aguero is also an injury doubt for Saturday with the Argentine unlikely to be risked ahead of the trip to Tottenham on Tuesday. Brighton is battling for their Premier League survival, but Seagulls boss Chris Hughton insists an upset is possible, even if he admitted it would be “foolish to go toe-to-toe” with Guardiola’s men. “If we were defeatist from the moment we’re walking on the pitch then there’s only one outcome,” said Hughton. “To give us any chance at all, we’ve got to be positive about the way we want to approach the game.” Manchester City won the League Cup in February.Manchester City will take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.Manchester City are facing injury concerns regarding Sergio Aguero. highlights Manchester: Manchester City is strong favorites to take another step towards an unprecedented quadruple of trophies in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Brighton at Wembley. A potential 13 more games lie between Pep Guardiola’s men and a clean sweep of FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League to add to the League Cup they lifted in February. However, with another seven matches to come before the end of April, Guardiola faces a headache in a familiar problem position. Oleksandr Zinchenko suffered a hamstring injury in Wednesday’s routine 2-0 win over Cardiff that restored City to the top of the Premier League. The Ukrainian has deputised ably at left-back, despite being a midfielder by trade prior to Guardiola’s arrival, while USD 68 million World Cup winner Benjamin Mendy has been sidelined for much of the past two seasons due to knee injuries. Guardiola’s patience with Mendy has worn thin and was tested again this week when the defender was filmed in a nightclub at 3.30am last Saturday morning, hours before the English champions traveled to Fulham. Mendy was not in the matchday squad, but was due in training the next day to continue his rehabilitation. “They are old enough to know what they have to do, I’m not his father,” said Guardiola when asked if he was angered by Mendy’s late night. “I would prefer him to go home earlier but I don’t control the players in that situation.” For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

BLACKSBURG, Va. — The Virginia Tech fanbase, clad in Hokies maroon and burnt orange, packed into the bleachers of a sold-out Cassell Coliseum, where they’re now 11-0 this season. They rallied around the Hokies with every basket. Every forced turnover. Every forced shot clock violation. They looked for any reason to cheer, growing louder as the game wore on, and the Hokies lead extended further and further out of Syracuse’s reach.A collective gasp followed every near-takeaway. The Hokies’ high-pressure man-to-man defense forced four shot-clock violations. Guard Justin Robinson freed himself up to go 9-for-13 from deep — shattering a program record for single-game made 3-pointers. They carved into the 2-3 zone with a mix of lights-out 3-point shooting, inside-out ball movement and a bevy of cuts to the rim.The Orange entered Saturday night winners of three-straight, but they played maybe their worst basketball against one of the conference’s best teams. The 10th-ranked Hokies (16-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) handled Syracuse (14-6, 5-2), 78-56, by moving the ball with ease and creating chaos on the SU perimeter. It’s the Orange’s worst defeat since they lost to St. John’s at the Carrier Dome in 2016.“Their defense was really, really good,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “We did a very poor job of finding Robinson. Our offensive struggles bled over into our defense, and we don’t do a very good job of locating him. They passed it out more than most teams, and we didn’t react to it.”The loss slows a surging SU team that came to Blacksburg in pursuit of a second top-10 road win in a 12-day span. Syracuse had altered the trajectory of its season. The Orange hobbled to four nonconference losses, then lost by 14 at home to one of the ACC’s weakest teams in Georgia Tech. Road games at Duke and Virginia Tech loomed. Yet SU put up 95 points in an overtime victory over the then-No. 1 Blue Devils on national TV, and all of a sudden every game on the schedule became winnable.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThen came Virginia Tech. On numerous possessions, the Hokies left Syracuse with no room. They doubled pick-and-rolls. They were all over SU junior shooting guard Tyus Battle when he touched the ball, largely cutting off any room for him to run. He finished with just 10 points on 10 shot attempts. With the perimeter in gridlock, Syracuse didn’t find much offensive rhythm.Ideally, when a team doubles the ball handler in high-screen situations, the big bumps toward the basket. A dump-off pass is the desired outcome, Boeheim said, but that puts the onus on senior center Paschal Chukwu, who finished with two points and didn’t alter shots defensively.“Some nights, he has nothing,” Boeheim said. “Tonight, he had nothing.”The 43-24 halftime deficit seemed to jolt the Orange. For as much as Virginia Tech pressured the ball on the perimeter, gaps opened inside. The backdoor was there. The high post, mainly sophomore forward Oshae Brissett’s territory, had points written all over it. He finished with a team-high 16 points. The Orange exploded out of the half to an 11-0 run. The arena went quiet, and Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams called a timeout.The Hokies shot back with a 14-1 run: In time, a Virginia Tech 3-pointer pushed the SU deficit to 15. Assistant coach Allen Griffin leaned back in his chair. After Brissett missed a layup near the left block, the Hokies marched back and connected on an alley-oop to push the lead to 18. Rapid ball movement inside and out left an open Ty Outlaw on the perimeter. His shot swished. SU senior point guard Frank Howard stood still. The arena got loud, and the Hokies never looked back, pushing the lead to as much as 25.When Robinson drilled 3 after 3, the Orange could not respond. When the Hokies stripped the ball loose and pushed the ball up court for a transition score, they could not respond then either.“We knew that we had to get the ball to the high post and let the high-post guy operate,” said Robinson, who also broke the program’s career assists record. “We made great decisions in the high post, and everything just opened up. In a zone like that, they converge in the middle. So, who are you going to guard on the outside?”The options VT had on the perimeter — always at least three shooters on the floor at once — haunted SU. Boeheim said he didn’t elect to counter their 3-point approach by inserting freshman sharpshooter Buddy Boeheim because VT’s defense was perimeter oriented. Boeheim also said it didn’t help that the Orange had only one day to prepare for the Hokies, while the Hokies had four days. Their preparation time allowed them to develop a plan against the SU 2-3 zone, he said. Generally, Boeheim wants at least two days to prepare for an opponent.Over the past week, the Orange handled Pittsburgh and Miami with ease. With a second top-10 road win, Syracuse had a chance to propel itself near the top of arguably college basketball’s top conference. But the Orange ran into a wall of a Hokies defense that combined with a relentless offensive attack to keep SU at bay.“They made it tough,” said Battle, who added two rebounds and a pair of assists. “They were swarming the pick-and-rolls, clogging passing and driving lanes.”At the under-eight timeout, Syracuse trailed by 15. At the under-four timeout, the VT lead had swelled to 25. “Let’s go Hokies” boomed through the arena as dozens of Syracuse fans filed for the exits. When the final buzzer sounded Saturday night, the Orange filed into the locker room, their minds trying to make sense of the program’s worst loss in two-plus years.

WEEK 17 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWe’ll also be keeping an eye on Nelson Agholor’s health this week. With Greg Ward Jr. proving to be very talented, he’s a strong PPR sleeper this week as long as Agholor (knee) remains out. You could also count on Russell Gage as a PPR sleeper against the Buccaneers this week. As the week goes on, we’ll also be monitoring teams that plan on resting players due to their end-of-season results being locked in, either in the playoffs at the top end or with nothing to play for at the bottom end of the standings. If things need to be changed to account for that, especially in regard’s to Baltimore’s pass-catchers, we’ll have those changes below as they present themselves.WEEK 17 PPR RANKINGS:Running back | Tight endAnother fun thing to keep an eye on is Michael Thomas’ reception total. He’s already passed Marvin Harrison’s single-season receptions record, but maybe the Saints just send a ton of targets his way in hopes of expanding that record into untouchable territory.MORE: Which players are sitting out Week 17? PPR fantasy football owners will need to keep an eye on news about Julian Edelman’s knee injury throughout Week 17. It could swing fantasy football championships if the Patriots decide to take it easy on Edelman and roll out some rookie wideouts like N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers against the Dolphins. Meyers, in particular, could play a prominent role in our PPR WR rankings if it turns out Edelman is hurting, but if not, it’s of course Edelmanwill have a big PPR day against Miami.There aren’t too many wide receiver injuries to be concerned with in Week 17. The two big ones are Chris Godwin (who we’d expect to miss out and isn’t ranked right now) and D.J. Moore, who was concussed in Week 16 and remains in our rankings for the time being. Godwin’s continued absence would bode well for Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson, while with Will Grier at QB a Moore absence doesn’t really help Curtis Samuel that much. Reminder: Check back for updates during the week.WEEK 17 DFS:DK Cash | DK GPP | Y!

Barcelona interest: “They did not contact me, but I know that my representative spoke with them. It is nice to know that people loved me in Barcelona.”The hardness of its beginnings: “At Empalme Graneros I was hungry, sad, happy, I learned to walk, to kick the ball. Every time I take a breath, I reflect and remember it.” Sharing costumes with Messi: “In the national team or at Barça? Where God forbid. But if I grab the captain’s armband, it’s going to be screwed up for me to take it off (laughs).”Soccer in your area: “It has happened to me many times to be shooting penalties and at four in the morning to start running because two started shooting themselves. He who forgets where he comes from, does not know where he is going.”Chimy Ávila, a soccer worker: “I collected cardboard, I worked in a demolition plant, I cut the grass of the neighbors … I did everything before dedicating myself to soccer.”Recovery support: “Ramos encouraged me, his brother called my agent to get interested. It will be because of the hosts that he hit me and I never complained. Felipe, from Atlético, also kicked me, I got up and said ‘what’s wrong, you’re Crazy? ‘But nothing happens, I’m used to shooting penalties to a goalkeeper with a gun to my waist. “ Enjoy your passion: “If I have been through so many risks in the neighborhood, why shouldn’t I be happy here? I don’t feel pressure. There is pressure from those who have to feed their children, get up at night to work on a farm. Soccer it’s not pressure for me. “
Several teams from St Catherine have made bright starts to the 2016 ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup, catching the eye of St Catherine Football Association president Peter Reid. Jonathan Grant, St Catherine High and St Jago High have all won their first two games, and Reid is encouraging them to keep going. He expressed the hope that the St Catherine teams would stay in contention. “I’d say it’s early days,” he cautioned, “but put your head in front and people will have to catch you.” So far in the Manning Cup Group G, St Jago have beaten Calabar and Campion College. Meanwhile, Jonathan Grant High and St Catherine High have each won twice in Group D. He also noted that several of the players on these teams have emerged from age group competition staged by the association. “Congratulations to the management and staff of the St Catherine teams,” he said while watching a Manning Cup game this week at the Prison Oval in Spanish Town, “but we have been doing our part in that.” “We have our Under-15, our Under-17,” he related, “and the boys would matriculate into the Manning Cup.” Speaking about the St Jago team that edged Calabar 1-0 in the match he was watching, he said: “I see about six boys who came through a programme and that would spread all throughout the different schools.”
