Press Association Substitute Nikica Jelavic had three good chances for Everton, but Moyes’ men were beaten in his 518th and last game in charge before his move to Old Trafford. The opener came when Oscar surged through the middle and found Demba Ba, whose shot from the angle on the right was spilled by Tim Howard and Mata followed up for his 20th of the season. Naismith went close before equalising when he capitalised on a mistake from David Luiz. Luiz failed to control a regulation ball and Naismith nipped in, received a return pass from Victor Anichebe and clipped in over the advancing Petr Cech. Darron Gibson went close from a shot which deflected off Nathan Ake, hit the post, Cech’s head, then the post again. Gary Cahill saw a shot saved by Howard and Branislav Ivanovic fired over. Sylvain Distin deflected a Ba shot out for a corner after Phil Jagielka had gifted the striker the ball. Jelavic, on for Naismith, headed straight at Cech before fluffing a glorious chance when Leighton Baines crossed to the far post. Chelsea snatched the winner when Oscar’s cross from the right was met with a cushioned header by substitute Victor Moses and Torres was clinical, his half-volley beating Howard at his near post. Cech made a stunning stop at point-blank range when the striker met a Baines cross as Chelsea held on for victory. Twelve months to the day since Chelsea’s Champions League win in Munich, Juan Mata put the hosts in front, only for Steven Naismith to swiftly equalise for Manchester United-bound Moyes’ visitors. The Europa League winners were on top in the second half and sealed victory through £50million striker Torres’ first league goal since December 23 as Rafael Benitez’s seven-month spell ended with a 28th win from 48 matches. Fernando Torres scored his first Barclays Premier League goal of 2013 as Chelsea sealed third place with a 2-1 victory which ensured David Moyes’ 11-year reign as Everton manager ended in defeat.
Press Association Bournemouth won the Championship last season and Chelsea the Premier League, with the victory showing not just how far the Cherries had come, but how far the Blues have fallen. Diego Costa started as a substitute for a second straight game, but, unlike at Tottenham, the striker was not left to brood for the entire 90 minutes and came on at half-time. Costa’s presence was limited until he fouled Adam Smith, was denied a penalty when his cutback hit Simon Francis on the arm and then was shown a yellow card for a foul on Matt Ritchie in quick succession. Pedro, or Costa, should have scored 15 minutes from time, but neither could get on the end of Branislav Ivanovic’s dangerous cross as Chelsea became increasingly frustrated by referee Mike Jones’ decisions. And Mourinho will be furious when he sees the replays of Murray’s winner, which came when Thibaut Courtois flapped at a corner and the former Crystal Palace striker headed in. Chelsea face further examinations against Porto and Leicester in the next 10 days, while the Cherries next play Manchester United. Eden Hazard received a written report after his Tottenham display as Mourinho wanted to leave no doubt over his delight at the performance. His first-half appraisal, continuing as Chelsea’s “false nine”, is unlikely to have been glowing. Jose Mourinho thought the reigning champions had turned a corner, but Eddie Howe’s visitors inflicted an eighth defeat of the season, the fourth at home. Glenn Murray headed in moments after coming off the substitutes’ bench and, while there may have been a hint of offside, the Cherries deserved their win in front of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, who could yet wield the managerial axe. Chelsea were plunged into crisis once more as Bournemouth claimed the biggest scalp of their Barclays Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge. The Belgian had a chance to end his search for a first goal of the season in his 20th game in the opening moments, but his shot was less than convincing and straight at Artur Boruc, the goalkeeper back from a six-week injury absence. Hazard would have been marked down by Mourinho soon after, too, when he lost the ball to Smith, in for the ill Sylvain Distin, and Junior Stanislas shot. Fortunately for Hazard, Gary Cahill blocked. Courtois was back for the first time in three months after his knee injury and soon showed why he was immediately restored, saving well from Stanislas. Joshua King could not get the rebound away and then fired at Courtois at the near post. The visitors attacked with pace and the Blues were vulnerable, particularly out wide. Costa, who flung his substitutes’ bib at Mourinho at the end of last Sunday’s draw at White Hart Lane, needed help from John Obi Mikel to put on his green bib after 29 minutes before warming up on the touchline. Chelsea were ponderous in possession and appeared to lack a presence up front, with Boruc saving from Hazard, Pedro and Oscar. Mourinho had seen enough, sending on Costa for Oscar. The muted half-time boos turned to applause just at the sight of the Spain striker going on. Nemanja Matic, wearing a protective mask, should have done better than head over Willian’s cross before Jones ignored Costa’s penalty appeal before booking the striker. Costa stretched to toe-poke Cesc Fabregas’ ball over the top, but Boruc saved. Murray scored eight minutes from time and Bournemouth might have had two more when Ritchie and Harry Arter fired wide on the counter-attack in a memorable win. TWEET OF THE MATCH “I think it was very considerate of Chelsea to swap sides with Leicester this season.” – Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) sums up change of fortunes for both Chelsea and Leicester as the champions suffer another Premier League defeat. PLAYER RATINGS Chelsea Thibaut Courtois: 6 (out of 10) Branislav Ivanovic: 6 Baba Rahman: 5 Kurt Zouma: 6 Gary Cahill: 7 Cesc Fabregas: 4 Nemanja Matic: 6 Willian: 6 Eden Hazard: 5 Oscar: 4 Pedro: 6 Substitutes: Diego Costa (Oscar, HT): 5 Bertrand Traore (Rahman, 83): 5 Loic Remy (Fabregas, 83): 5 Bournemouth Artur Boruc: 8 Charlie Daniels: 7 Simon Francis: 7 Steve Cook: 6 Adam Smith: 7 Harry Arter: 7 Dan Gosling: 6 Andrew Surman: 7 Matt Ritchie: 8 Junior Stanislas: 7 Joshua King: 7 Substitutes Glenn Murray (King, 80): 7 STAR PLAYER Boruc returned from a six-week absence to frustrate Chelsea, saving from Hazard, Oscar, Pedro and Costa. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Murray came off the substitutes’ bench to score Bournemouth’s winner. There was a hint of offside as he nodded in at the post after Chelsea failed to deal with a corner, with Courtois flapping. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Mourinho made one change following the Tottenham draw he regarded as Chelsea’s best performance of the season. But Costa was out of the starting XI for a second straight game. Chelsea were again ponderous in possession and lacked a presence, which barely changed when Costa came on at half-time. Bournemouth were without Sylvain Distin due to illness, so Smith came in and goalkeeper Boruc was back. The Cherries huddled round Howe and assistant Jason Tindall at any lengthy break in play and enacted the game plan perfectly. MOAN OF THE MATCH Fabregas floundering. One ball to Costa aside, the Spain playmaker again struggled to make a meaningful contribution. WHO’S UP NEXT Chelsea v Porto (Champions League, Wednesday, December 9) Bournemouth v Manchester United (Barclays Premier League, Saturday, December 12) Mourinho claimed his side were denied a “clear” penalty, but vowed his team would emerge from their difficult spell. The Portuguese told Sky Sports: “We dominated the game but one refereeing mistake cost us. It was a clear handball, with the result at 0-0, but that’s part of the game. In the first half we were not aggressive enough. We had a couple of shots and chances, but in the second half we were much more aggressive. “We tried in the period where we were stronger but this is the moment when they scored the goal and with five minutes to go with a team that was defending, some people call it intelligent, some people call it lack of play. “You know, time-outs, stop of the play, asking for a medical department to go in to drink for a minute like in basketball. But they did very well.” Asked if Costa’s introduction had made a positive difference, he said: “We were stronger in the second half but it was not because of Diego – it was the attitude, the intensity, the aggressiveness. We started pressing much higher and sooner. “I’m concerned and I was concerned before this game. You can imagine now after this defeat at home.” He added: “Chelsea will never be fighting for relegation – no chance. Chelsea will win matches and come out of that area. That’s not the problem. The problem is that our objective is to finish in the top four.” Howe, in contrast, was understandably delighted. “We’ve believed we’re on the right path. You look at our recent games and we’ve done really well, performed well in several of them but haven’t got the wins we feel we’ve deserved,” he said. “Today was a different kind of performance from us. We’ve had to show a different side to our game but I’m so pleased for the players for all their hard work this season. “First half, it was quite even. We were well in it. Second half we’ve played under pressure and we’ve had to dig in, we’ve had to defend, put our bodies on the line. I thought we were magnificent defensively. Our keeper played a big part in that. There’s been a lot of question marks about our defending this season but we’ve answered a few questions today. “I don’t think we’ve defended too badly this season, just individual mistakes, a few setbacks and disappointments have come our way. The players have always come in every day, working hard and try to improve themselves. Every setback they’ve had, they’ve bounced back.”
London: Ace Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will be playing for Yorkshire for the major part of the 2020 County season.Ashwin, who will play for Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League 2020, is set to take up the reins as the Club’s front-line ‘overseas spinner’ following Keshav Maharaj’s successful stint in 2019. The 33-year-old is scheduled to feature in a minimum of eight County Championship fixtures for Yorkshire next season, after the conclusion of his IPL commitments and following a short period of rest at the BCCI’s request.“I love playing first-class cricket and have enjoyed my two previous spells with Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire,” Ashwin said in a statement.Ashwin has played nine Championship matches for Worcestershire and Notts in 2017 and 2019, taking 54 wickets with four five-fors and two six-fors.“I’m thrilled to be joining Yorkshire, a club with a wonderful history and a fantastic fan base,” said the Indian off-spinner. “My role will be to score runs and take wickets but it will be a collective effort if we are to win the title.“I know a lot about Yorkshire and to follow in the footsteps of Sachin, who played for the county many years ago, is a wonderful feeling for me.”The Chennai-born bowling all-rounder has taken 362 wickets in 70 Tests, 254 of those in 43 home Tests and recently claimed his 27th five-wicket haul in Test cricket.Widely regarded as one of the best spinners India has ever produced, he is his country’s fourth highest wicket-taker and claimed the most international wickets across all three formats last decade (564).

Still coming out for their piece of the cake – West Coast Berbice (District 5)WHEN West Coast Berbice (District 5) come out at the National Schools’ Cycling, Swimming and Track & Field Championships (Nationals), which will begin next week at varying locations, they know that they will be at a disadvantage, given the team’s small size. However, the District still look to leave their mark.Though the District has a full capacity track and field team, like many of the other 14 Districts that will be competing at the Championships, the Berbice team are struggling with their swimming and cycling teams, and so realistically concede that going after the overall title of the multi-sport event just isn’t feasible.But that’s not to say that West Coast Berbice by any means do not have a goal, nor will they be looking to leave Nationals empty-handed.“We know that we cannot eat the whole cake so we are going there to at least get part of that cake. We’re not looking at the overall Championships, we’re going there to bring back some medals and show them what we can do,” declared the District head, Michelle Archibald.“For me we are not looking at positions in terms of winning the Championships because we have weaknesses; we are not going with a full team. But our eyes are on records, and bringing back some medals. That is our aim, my athletes know that.”After also facing a severely limited team last year, the Region Five team finished thirteenth overall, after the competition was won by the Upper Demerara/Kwakwani (District 10).Archibald knows that the District cannot stand a chance against powerhouses like Upper Demerara/Kwakwani (District 10) and North Georgetown (District 11), the two most successful Districts at the Championships, known to always be at full capacity.There are several longstanding woes that have plagued the Berbice District over the years, and while they have made improvements in the track and field division, the struggle continues in the other areas.The challenges range from lack of facilities to lack of equipment.“Up here in Region Five the focus is more on track and field than on cycling or swimming. Where swimming is concerned there is no pool that is close. For cycling we don’t have much persons equipped with their own cycles. We also won’t be participating in the high jump, because we lack that equipment,” Archibald explained.There are just 8 swimmers and 6 cyclists, while on the more optimistic side, they have a team of 12 participants for the teachers’ competition, but even there they have challenges.She further described that over the years a few efforts have been made by the Regional Democratic Council to address some of the team’s issues, but the remedies did not pan out well.“Where the cycling is concerned our region in previous years purchased two cycles; but after the Nationals the cycles were back at the region, and when we were ready to use them again, we had to service them and so after a time they deteriorated.“So they said that it’s a personal sport and the athletes, if they are interested, have to get their own cycles. But just a few children can afford a racing bike,” Archibald noted.However, in the case of procuring other equipment, like those for the high jump, Archibald says she has been appealing to the RDC, who promised to address the issue.“The Region is the one that the children are going to represent and if we are going to represent you then you have to ensure we have these things.“Every year when we come back to the region we write a report and do our recommendations and say to them: look this is where we fall short, this is what we would like you to do for us.“But then it just go under the carpet, and when it’s Nationals again it comes back to the same old story again,” she pointed out.
ONE of Guyana’s most famous boxers, Terrence Alli, was over the weekend named as an inductee of the New York State Boxing Hall of Fame.Alli, 58, made his debut in 1979 against Winston Goodridge, winning on points, and it was the perfect start for the man many felt had placed Guyana on the world stage long before Andrew ‘Six Heads’ Lewis won the country’s first World Title in 2001.The seventh annual New York State Boxing Hall of Fame (NYSBHOF) induction dinner will be held on April 29, at Russo’s On the Bay in Howard Beach, New York.“This day is for all these inductees who worked so hard for our enjoyment,” NYSBHOF president Bob Duffy said, “and for what they did for New York State boxing.”Each attending inductee (or direct descendant of Alli) will receive a custom-designed belt signifying his or her induction into the NYSBHOF.The life and career of Terrence Alli embodies both the glory and the tragedy that often lurk not far from one another in the world of boxing.He was an exciting, eccentric and socially-conscious fighter who became the world’s top Super Lightweight contender.Alli finished his career with 52 wins (25 by knockout), 15 losses and two draws but will be forever be remembered as one of the best fighters Guyana has ever produced but who has never won a world title.Alli’s first shot at a world title was in 1985 against Harry Arroyo for the IBF World Lightweight Title but, the Guyanese was knocked out by the American.Eight years later, Alli found himself against Mexican Julio Cesar Chavez for the WBC World Super Lightweight Title.Guyanese at home and abroad were glued to their television screens to witness the classic showdown, hoping that Alli could take down the man who at the time had defended his title against the likes of Hector Camacho, Angel Hernandez and Meldrick Taylor.However, luck was not on Alli’s side, since he was beaten by the Mexican.The Guyanese entered the ring seven times and lost them all; including losses to ‘Six Heads’ Lewis for the vacant Guyanese Welterweight Title and his WBC International Super Welterweight Title against Quirino Garcia (Unanimous Decision)To his credit, Alli was the USBA Lightweight Champion and NABF Super Lightweight Title-holder.Perhaps sadder still, by all accounts he feels he has been forsaken by the country that he always proudly represented with such patriotic vigour, even when he had to go abroad to advance his career.
BEN CLASSON/Herald photoAfter a short home stand, the ninth-ranked Wisconsin volleyball team will hit the road again this weekend for matches against Minnesota and Iowa.On Friday, the Badgers face the 11th-ranked Gophers, who are third in the Big Ten with a 12-4 overall record and 5-1 in the conference. Minnesota’s only conference loss came against Big Ten leader Penn State Oct. 6.The game will be the 10th this year the Badgers have played on the road, compared to five at home. The experience they have had during road games has helped them prepare for the hostile environment at the Minnesota Sports Pavilion, where the Gophers play their home games.”We know we are packing our bags and getting ready to hit the road [Friday,] and it feels comfortable,” head coach Pete Waite said. “It feels fine, and the players are very good at getting on any opponent’s floor and going after the other team, rather than worrying about the environment.” The match has significance in both the Big Ten standings and with the senior class. The UW seniors have never won a match at Minnesota, which gives the team an added incentive to win.”There is an extra motivation for the seniors because we haven’t won at Minnesota yet,” co-captain Jocelyn Wack said. “That’s something that’s really exciting, just to take care of our side and go in there and play well. It’s something we haven’t done in the last three years.” The Gophers have already had a lot of success this year and have moved up to 11th in the CSTV/AVCA polls. Other than their loss to Penn State, their only other losses have come against powerhouses Stanford and California.The Gophers have several players who present a challenge to the Badgers. Middle blocker Jesse Jones, who missed the last match with an ankle injury, is listed as questionable according to the Minnesota volleyball website, but Waite believes that Minnesota will play her this weekend because of the importance of the match. Jones ranks second in the Big Ten in blocks, averaging 1.73 per game.The Hakweyes, who are last place in the Big Ten, could prove to be a sleeper team. They have already defeated Michigan, who is ranked No. 15 in the nation and is fourth in the Big Ten.”It’s big because we know it’s not just about one match going up to Minnesota and playing, but it’s about the Big Ten race in both matches,” Waite said. Juniors Emily Hiza and Laura Kremer are the players to watch for Iowa. Hiza ranks sixth in the Big Ten in digs, averaging 4.35 per game, while Kremer is sixth in the Big Ten in blocks with 1.35 per game. “They’re scrappy. They always have been,” Wack said. “Especially it being the match after Minnesota, you don’t want to play down to anybody’s level. You don’t want to take anyone for granted.”In practice this week, the Badgers have not changed much of their game plan. Waite said they went through some video to see what the tendencies of each teams were. Other than that, the team made sure they had the basics down for the matches this weekend.”You know, we don’t want to change too much of what we are doing because I think we are doing things well,” Waite said. “We just really need to attack with our serve and pass well, and stay composed throughout match and really be hungry to win. That’s going to be the important part.”One thing the Badgers are not doing is looking ahead to next week, when Penn State comes to the Field House. If Wisconsin comes away with a sweep this weekend, it will make next weekend’s match one of the most anticipated of the season. But the volleyball team knows they need to take it one game at a time. “I don’t think the team is looking forward at all to the Penn State match,” Waite said. “I know there is talk about their friends coming and a big crowd. There will be a lot of students coming out, and it’s high school team day, but that’s [not] what they are thinking about. They are thinking about Minnesota [and] Iowa right now. Once that’s over, they can think about them next weekend.”
