LONDON (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.
The 85-year-old woman who was injured in the crash-landing of a Fly Jamaica flight at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) succumbed to her injuries on Friday afternoon.Guyana Times understands that Rookhia Kalloo died while receiving treatment at a private medical facility.Kalloo was among the 118 adults, two infants and eight crew members on flight OJ256, destined for Toronto, Canada. The aircraft took off from CJIA at about 02:10h on November 9, 2018, but after some time, encountered hydraulic problems, and as such returned to Timehri where it crash-landed.Meanwhile, following last week’s incident, investigators will finally be able to fully assess what exactly went wrong as the Fly Data Recorder (Black Box) and Cockpit Voice Recorder (Pink Box) have been sent to the United States to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).NTSB is an independent US Government agency that overlooks investigations into air transportation accidents. The flight, OJ256, left Guyana for Toronto, Canada, at about 02:10h on Friday last, but after reportedly encountering hydraulic issues, the pilot acted quickly and returned to the CJIA where it crash-landed at about 02:53h.On Saturday last, the NTSB investigator arrived in Guyana and worked with GCAA and other stakeholders at the crash site on Monday and Tuesday as the investigation was carried out.Although the Guyana Fire Service (GFS) was the first responder to the crash site, several fire fighters caused embarrassment to themselves and the GFS for their alleged acts of theft. At least 14 of the fire fighters who were implicated in removing several devices belonging to the crew and passengers were believed to have taken the items as they had exclusive access to the crashed plane.One of the firemen had reportedly returned some of the stolen items while some were found at the Timehri Fire Service. The airline had opened their call centres around the clock and was contacting passengers with flight reservations through November 14, 2018. Arrangements were made with Caribbean Airlines to have the passengers transported to their destinations.
