Improved Spurs keep up chase for EPL title

first_imgLONDON (AP):Unlike last season’s title race, Tottenham know they are not on the wrong side of a popularity contest in their pursuit of Chelsea.Leicester were the undoubted pick of the neutrals as they fought off Tottenham’s challenge to improbably collect the Premier League trophy last May.Now Tottenham occupy the role of the underdog, sitting four points behind Chelsea after swatting aside Bournemouth 4-0 yesterday.”We expended a lot of energy fighting against Leicester, but against West Brom, against Chelsea, against the media,” Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said, recalling last season’s late costly draws against West Bromwich Albion and Chelsea. “We fought against everyone, but now we are focusing on fighting our opponents when we play.”If Chelsea can be chased down in Spurs’ remaining six games, Tottenham would be crowned champions for the first time since 1961, and etch another new name in the Premier League trophy. A triumph for Chelsea, who are at Manchester United today, would be far less enchanting, given the west London club has won the league four times since 2005.RACKING UP THE WINSAll Tottenham can do is keep racking up the wins – yesterday’s was the seventh in a row – and raising the goal-difference advantage over Chelsea in case it matters. Tottenham have a six-goal edge over Chelsea by that reckoning after another irresistible performance that produced a club-record 12th straight home win.Even substitute Vincent Jansson managed to score his first goal from open play eight months into the misfiring striker’s first Premier League campaign, wrapping up the victory in stoppage time. It was opened by Mousa Dembele scoring his first goal of the season in the 16th minute, ghosting into the penalty area unmarked to meet Christian Eriksen’s corner.Inside three minutes, Son Heung-min put the ball through goalkeeper Artur Boruc’s legs for his 19th goal of the campaign to become the highest-scoring South Korean in a single European season since Cha Bum-kun for Bayer Leverkusen in 1985-86.Yesterday’s other results: Sunderland 2 West Ham 2; Crystal Palace 2 Leicester 2; Everton 3 Burnley 1; Stoke 3 Hull 1; Watford 1 Swansea 0; Southampton 0 Manchester City 3.last_img read more

I’m getting a raw deal

first_img “The people who booed me, those are the haters. You have people in it that them bringing (favour) and they fear me. “I am a danger to them, so if I am out, it may be easier for dem.” He added that some boxers are getting favours from officials. “I don’t have that relationship (like other boxers). Maybe because me is a one away guy.” Jamaica Boxing Board of Control president Stephen ‘Bomber’ Jones declined to get into a debate about whether certain boxers are favoured but spoke about the appeal. “It’s not the JBBC’s decision to have an appeal, it’s never personal” he said. “It’s a matter of having certain rules and everybody abiding by it. ” However, Davis said he will not let the matter rest if it results in a rematch. “If they (Leblond’s team) gonna make a big fuss out of it, we take it to court. Because I know I won the fight. They judged the fight in my favour. I’m not supposed to fight a guy two times. I’m not proving anything. I won the fight!” Local boxer Tsetsi ‘Lights Out’ Davis has said that he feels he has been treated harshly by the Jamaican boxing fraternity, which includes both officials and fans of the sport. Davis is currently waiting to hear if an appeal by Canadian fighter Dave Leblond, whom he beat in his opening round Wray and Nephew Contender Series bout three ways ago, will result in him being forced into a rematch. He told The Gleaner that he feels he is not a very liked fighter, because of what he claims he has been put through in his career over the past year. This includes not only awaiting the appeal, but also having to hand over his match earnings after beating Leblond, as a fine for not making weight, the day before. “I’m getting a raw deal.” Davis said. Davis said that fans at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium on the night of the fight were booing him and cheering for Leblond by shouting “Canada” did this because they felt threatened by him.
