Aston Villa vs Everton to retain place ahead of Man Utd and Arsenal as most played league fixture in history – The Sun

ASTON VILLA face Everton tonight at Villa Park in what is the return of English football's most-played league game.

The Toffees have played against the Villans a total of 202 times, with their first fixture against each other coming on September 22, 1888, which the Merseyside club lost 2-1.

Both teams were among the 12 founding members of the Football League which was formed in 1888.

The last meeting between the two sides came on March 1, 2016, with Everton emerging as 3-1 victors.

If Villa failed to achieve promotion to the Premier League last season then they would have been joined at the top of the list by Arsenal vs Manchester United.

Everton vs Liverpool would have also been contested 202 times at the end of the campaign.

Villa against Everton's English record is dwarfed by Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers, with the Glasgow pair playing a whopping 316 times against each other.

Dean Smith's men go into tonight's clash looking to get their first points of the season having lost their opening two games.

A 3-1 defeat against Tottenham was followed by a 2-1 loss against Bournemouth last week, leaving them in 17th spot.

Everton meanwhile have picked up four points out a possible six following their 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace and 1-0 win over Watford.

Left-back Lucas Digne is set to start for the visitors despite a knock, while Villa ace James Chester is ruled out with a thigh problem.

Yankees-Dodgers Is Both a Rarity and a Potential Playoff Preview

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Los Angeles Dodgers franchise has been around, in different forms, since 1884. The Yankees’ roots date to 1903. They are among the most storied and successful teams in the sport’s history, having met in the World Series 11 times.

Yet because interleague play was not introduced in baseball until 1997, the Yankees and the Dodgers have faced each other in only 13 regular-season games in more than a century of coexistence. The most recent time was a three-game series in 2016 when the Dodgers were on their way to another National League West title and the Yankees were headed for a fourth-place finish in the American League East.

The circumstances will be much different in this weekend’s three-game series, which begins Friday in Los Angeles: The Yankees and the Dodgers have the two best records in baseball, and the matchup could be a preview of the World Series. In an everyday sport such as baseball, in which coaches and players preach keeping an even keel to cope with the rigors of the marathon season, this matchup felt deserving of the fanfare.

“It’s something we’ll all look forward to,” Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said this week, before his team was swept by the Oakland Athletics and matched a season high with four consecutive losses.

The Yankees’ and Dodgers’ last postseason meeting was the 1981 World Series, which followed a strike-shortened season. The Dodgers won in six games, thanks to key performances from third baseman Ron Cey, outfielder Pedro Guerrero and catcher Steve Yeager.

Major League Baseball and television executives, who saw ratings slip during last year’s World Series, would salivate over a Dodgers-Yankees reunion this fall.

Some projections and oddsmakers, however, have the Dodgers and the Houston Astros, who aren’t far behind in terms of record, as the teams most likely to meet for the championship. That last happened only two years ago, and the Astros won in seven games. The Dodgers returned to the World Series last year, only to lose to the Boston Red Sox in five games. The Yankees have not played in a World Series since winning their 27th title in 2009.

Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge, a Northern California native, said he grew up hearing about games at Dodger Stadium from his father, and Judge visited once when he was in high school, doing a workout there. The stands were empty.

“I’m excited to see it packed out with the fans going crazy,” he said Thursday. “They’ve got a young good team like we do. I’ve been looking forward to this game for a while. They’re the best in the N.L. and been to the World Series two years in a row and won their division. You want to play the best teams.”

This weekend, the Dodgers hold an edge over the Yankees as a more well-rounded team, the biggest disparity coming on the mound and in the trainer’s room. No team can rival the Yankees’ wounded this season: 28 players have spent time on the injured list, including 16 who remain there today.

Entering Thursday, the Dodgers ranked first in the major leagues in earned run average (3.33) and fourth in runs scored (5.55 per game). The Yankees had a slightly better offense (5.88 runs per game, the best figure in baseball) but an appreciably worse pitching staff (4.52 E.R.A., ranked 16th).

The Dodgers’ best position players are either homegrown talents or ones who have blossomed in their system after being acquired: outfielder Cody Bellinger, who is a leading candidate in the race for the National League’s Most Valuable Player Award; but also infielder Max Muncy, third baseman Justin Turner, outfielder Alex Verdugo and shortstop Corey Seager.

The Yankees have weathered numerous injuries in part because of the shrewd moves to acquire infielder D.J. LeMahieu, outfielder Mike Tauchman, third baseman Gio Urshela and the relief pitchers Zack Britton and Adam Ottavino. They have survived the loss of Luis Severino, who is hoping to make his season debut next month after several injuries, and the struggles of J.A. Happ, C. C. Sabathia and others mostly because the offense and bullpen have carried the team.

The Yankees’ most glaring weakness, though, remains their starting rotation, which was ranked 19th in baseball with a 4.85 E.R.A. entering Thursday’s game at Oakland. James Paxton, Domingo German and Sabathia are in line to start against the Dodgers.

By a sizable margin, the Dodgers (2.94 E.R.A.) have the best rotation in baseball, led by three All-Stars: Hyun-Jin Ryu, whose 1.94 E.R.A. is the lowest in the major leagues; Clayton Kershaw, a three-time Cy Young Award winner; and the 25-year-old right-hander Walker Buehler. The Dodgers’ bullpen, which has a comparable E.R.A. to the Yankees’ relief corps, ranks lower in several advanced metrics, and their closer, Kenley Jansen, has sputtered more than in years past.

7am Chelsea news LIVE: Caballero to Real Madrid, Conte sues Blues again, Batshuayi could start against Norwich – The Sun

FRANK LAMPARD's tough start as Chelsea manager continued on his Stamford Bridge bow against Leicester.

After a 4-0 hammering at Man Utd on the opening day, the Blues legend was desperate for a victory against the Foxes – but Wilfred Ndidi's second half header saw the visitors return up the M1 with a point.

Follow ALL of the latest Blues news, updates and gossip below…

  • KURT ZOUMA has declared that Saturday’s trip to Norwich is a must-win for Chelsea.

    The Blues are yet to win either of their opening two Premier League fixtures under Frank Lampard, losing 4-0 away to Man Utd before drawing 1-1 at home with Leicester.

    Chelsea also suffered a heartbreaking penalty shootout defeat to Liverpool in the European Super Cup final.

    And Zouma believes the club need to make a statement against the Canaries this weekend.

    He said: “We want to win every game. But we must win. We want to win this one, of course.

    “We are Chelsea. We are a big club. We wanted to win against Leicester City on Sunday.

    “Unfortunately we couldn’t and Saturday has to be a win. Every game has to be a win.”

  • CESC FABREGAS and David Luiz have both wished Davide Zappacosta good luck following his move to Roma.

    The right-back has returned to Italy on an initial six-month loan, while also having his contract extended by a year until 2022.

    Fabregas and Luiz both took to social media to wish Zappacosta the best of luck on his new adventure.

    Fabregas left Chelsea in January for a move to French side Monaco.

    While Luiz quit the Bridge on deadline day in a shock switch to rivals Arsenal.

  • FRANK LAMPARD is set to fast-track Reece James into his Chelsea first-team squad.

    The ace is on the verge of returning from an ankle injury.

    And James is now set for a chance to break into Chelsea's starting XI after Davide Zappacosta was shipped out on loan to Roma.

    Lampard is a big fan of the ex-Wigan loanee, who could soon find himself moving ahead of club captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

  • CHELSEA chief Marina Granovskaia has blocked Tiemoue Bakayoko’s return to Monaco on loan.

    The Blues are desperate to get the £40million midfielder off the books.

    They are willing to let him leave again on loan after his spell at AC Milan last term, and he was hoping to land a switch back to his old club.

    However, RMC Sport claim the move has been stopped over fears from Chelsea director Granovskaia that Monaco are not “big enough” for the 25-year-old to showcase his true value.

  • ANTONIO CONTE is taking further legal action against Chelsea despite already being given a £9million payout, according to reports.

    The Times say the bitter row between Italian Conte, who now manages Inter Milan, and the Blues is rumbling on some 13 months after he left the club.

    They say Conte, 50, was the claimant in a preliminary hearing held at the Central London Employment Tribunal last Friday.

    He is believed to have brought a statutory claim at an Employment Tribunal against Chelsea, with a verdict expected next month.

Brooks Koepka: The ‘funny’ story behind sexy snap with Jena Sims

There’s more to the story behind Brooks Koepka’s sexy beach snap with girlfriend Jena Sims.

Speaking with the media on Wednesday, the 29-year-old golfer spoke about a previous vacation with his model gal pal, which included a close encounter of the fan-kind.

“Yeah, I’ve had people. I think — where were we last time? I think we were in the BVIs [British Virgin Islands], and we were walking through some rocks, and some fans walked up and tried to take a picture,” Koepka said, according to Golf Digest. “I think that’s when, I don’t know, Jena was trying to make some Instagram photo. I don’t know. It was pretty funny. She’s laughing at it now. If you only knew what was going on.”

In the photo, which was posted in April, a topless Sims is seen straddling Koepka in the sand. She captioned the image, “I lava you.”

Though Koepka’s focus this week has been on the Tour Championship, he did take a social media break Wednesday to promote his spread in ESPN’s upcoming Body Issue.

“September 4th go get a copy of the @ESPN Body Issue! #ESPNBody,” Koepka wrote alongside an apparent nude photo.

It didn’t take long for Sims to reply, “We are getting good at these wardrobe malfunctions.”

Rowing: Para-rower dies after boat capsizes at world championships

LAUSANNE (AP) – The governing body of rowing says para-rower Dzmitry Ryshkevich died after his boat capsized during training at the world championships in Austria.

World Rowing cites a police statement that the flotation device on the 33-year-old Belarus athlete’s boat had broken.

Although Ryshkevich freed himself from the safety belts in the boat, he sank into the water near the Danube in Linz-Ottensheim on Wednesday (Aug 21) as rescuers approached.

Police say his body was recovered from the murky, 2.4-metre deep water more than two hours later.

Police say reasons for the broken equipment “are yet unknown and are currently under investigation”.

Ryshkevich was competing at his third world championships. The races are qualifying events for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

International Paralympic Committee president Andrew Parsons called the incident a “terrible tragedy”.

Tattooed Larry Bird mural in Indiana has NBA legend crying foul

Fox News Flash top headlines for August 21

Fox News Flash top headlines for August 21 are here. Check out what’s clicking on

Basketball Hall of Famer Larry Bird is a legend in the state of Indiana and a mural painted on the side of a multi-family residence has the three-time NBA champion crying foul.

The mural, created by artist Jules Mack, is a replica of Bird’s appearance on a 1977 Sports Illustrated cover. He is in his Indiana State jersey, where he played college basketball. While Bird appreciates the mural, he was not a fan of the tattoos the artist painted on his body.

Bird “needs to protect” his brand and “doesn’t want to be seen as a tattooed guy,” said Gary Sallee, the former Indiana Pacers executive’s attorney.

Mack said he was trying to be funny. She said she will remove most of the tattoos, which include two rabbits mating on his right arm and the Ball State Cardinals logo on his face.

She told the Indianapolis Star the “Indiana” tattoo across his left arm will stay.

Bird was born in Indiana and was known through his career as the “Hick from French Lick.” He played with the Boston Celtics for 13 seasons and was an All-Star in 12 of those seasons.

Bird’s attorney, Gary Sallee, says the former Indiana Pacers executive "needs to protect" his brand and "doesn’t want to be seen as a tattooed guy." Artist Jules Muck says she was just trying to be funny. The mural is a replica of Bird’s appearance on a 1977 Sports Illustrated cover when he played college ball for Indiana State.

He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1998.

J.D. Davis is the Mets’ hero in wild win over Indians

J.D. Davis’ swing sent Citi Field into hysteria again, and the Mets’ magic continued Wednesday night.

Davis worked a nine-pitch at-bat against Brad Hand and delivered a walk-off single to complete a 4-3 win over the Indians in 10 innings.

On a night Marcus Stroman made an early exit with a hamstring injury, the Mets sent the roaring crowd home happy with their fourth straight win while clinching another series victory — their 10th in 12 series since the All-Star break.

The Indians broke the 2-2 tie in the top of the 10th when Carlos Santana hit a two-out, two-strike home run off Luis Avilan, but the Mets answered right back in the bottom of the inning.

Surging shortstop Amed Rosario led off the bottom of the 10th with a double to right-center field and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Joe Panik. The Indians intentionally walked Pete Alonso to get a lefty-on-lefty matchup between closer Brad Hand and Michael Conforto.

Conforto hit a grounder to first base and Santana threw to second to start a potential game-ending double play. But nobody covered first base for the return throw that never happened, allowing Rosario to score to retie the game, 3-3.

Wilson Ramos then hit a dribbler down the third-base line and beat it out for the infield single, extending the inning for Davis. The left fielder’s line drive one-hopped the wall in left field, scoring Conforto from third and setting off a celebration.

After Seth Lugo threw a pair of scoreless frames and left the go-ahead run at third base in the top of the ninth, Avilan got the 10th. Manager Mickey Callaway chose the lefty Avilan, not Edwin Diaz, to face the top of the Indians order, which featured three straight switch hitters. Avilan got Francisco Lindor to ground out and Greg Allen to strike out before Santana homered with Diaz warming up in the bullpen.

Stroman left the game after four innings of one-run baseball because of left hamstring tightness. The last out he recorded was a groundout on which he had to run to cover first base, though he did not outwardly show any signs of injury. Jeurys Familia replaced him to start the fifth inning. An MRI showed nothing more than tightness and the Mets said they were not concerned.

Stroman’s Mets career has gotten off to an inconsistent start since he came over from the Blue Jays in a July 28 trade. Wednesday marked his fourth start with the Mets, across which he has thrown 19 ²/₃ innings and allowed 10 earned runs. He has provided a jolt of energy, if not clean outings. Wednesday, he gave up five hits and a walk but stranded four runners.

The bottom of the Mets’ order gave them life after Indians starter Adam Plutko had been in control early. With one out in the fifth inning, Todd Frazier singled then took off on a hit-and-run as Juan Lagares crushed a double to right-center field. Frazier came all the way around to score to tie the game 1-1.

Luis Guillorme, pinch hitting in the pitcher’s spot, followed by ripping a double of his own to center field to score Lagares for the 2-1 lead.

But it didn’t last long. Brad Brach relieved Familia in the sixth and walked the first batter he faced on four pitches. One out later, Jose Ramirez slapped a triple into the left-field corner to tie it 2-2. Brach stranded Ramirez at third, though, getting a pop-up and strikeout to end the inning.

The Indians had made hard contact on Stroman early and finally got something to show for it in the third inning. After Lindor singled and Carlos Santana doubled, Yasiel Puig hit a ground ball to third base. Frazier handled the in-between hop but chose to get the sure out at first instead of trying for Lindor at home as the Indians took a 1-0 lead.

Brandon Copeland suspension adds one more concern for Jets’ defense

It had been a pretty tranquil training camp for the Jets until adversity decided to visit Florham Park. Suddenly, with the regular-season opener a little more than two weeks away, the Jets defense has hit the type of turbulence that could impact its launch into the 2019 season.

The announcement late Wednesday that backup outside linebacker Brandon Copeland has been suspended for the first four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances added to the questions surrounding a now vulnerable defense.

Copeland, who is entering his seventh season, played in all 16 games last year, starting 10 and recording 35 tackles and five sacks. His suspension comes the same week the Jets learned they’ll be without starting inside linebacker Avery Williamson for the season after he tore his ACL playing with the second team in the Jets’ preseason game at Atlanta on Saturday.

That isn’t the Jets’ only concern on defense. Cornerback Trumaine Johnson remains sidelined with a pulled hamstring with no indication if he’ll be ready for the Sept. 8 opener against Buffalo. Meanwhile, safety Marcus Maye only returned to full duty this week, having been out since November with a shoulder injury.

At a time when defensive coordinator Gregg Williams should be fine-tuning his personnel heading into the third preseason game against the Saints on Saturday at MetLife, the Jets defense is trying to find pieces.

Copeland’s suspension perhaps explains the Tuesday signing of linebacker Stephone Anthony, a former 2015 first-round pick of the Saints. Anthony spent the past two seasons in Miami playing for Adam Gase, appearing in 24 games.

“He fits into our locker room well,” Gase said. “He knows a little bit of our defense. It’s different than what he’s been in, but at the same time there’s similarity to what he did when he was younger. He’s got a couple of weeks to see where he fits in.”

Neville Hewitt figures to replace Williamson, who posted a career-high 120 combined tackles last year after signing a three-year $22.5 million deal as a free agent. Hewitt, undrafted in 2015, played three seasons with the Dolphins.

The Jets will also take a hard look at Harvey Lang, a former Patriot, who spent most of last season on the Jets practice squad, and rookies Jachai Polite and Jamey Mosley. Polite is the third-round draft choice after collecting 11 sacks at Florida.

None of the candidates figures to offer the type of production expected from Williamson and, to a lesser extent, Copeland. But Williams is already molding the Jets to believe in the “next-man-up” mentality by teaching concepts rather than exclusive positions.

“It’s mandatory that everybody has a second position they have to learn and some guys have pushed on to a third position,” Williams said recently. “That’s how you battle injuries because it’s next man up.”

Copeland took to Instagram to explain his positive test for PED, saying, he was “taking a supplement AFTER multiple verifications that it was safe for me to use.” He said the supplement was “contaminated with a banned substance — NOT on its label.”

The Jets should feel fortunate quarterback Drew Brees and the high-powered Saints offense are only here for a meaningless preseason game. Had this been a real game, Williamson’s injury and Copeland’s suspension would have been devastating. Now the Jets have a little more than two weeks to get their unit healed and ready.

“Once we get into the regular season, it’s about playing the guys we have,” Williams said. “I’ve been doing it for 40 years, so that’s how it is.”

Next Man Up sounds great in theory, but the Jets can’t keep losing defensive players at this rate and expect to be ready for the Bills.

Kelowna Chiefs, KIJHL to honour legacy of Grant Sheridan this season

When the Kelowna Chiefs step on the ice this season, they’ll be without the heart and soul of the franchise.

The recent death of team president and general manager Grant Sheridan has left the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League team in mourning.

“Unfortunately, when we were in the third round of the playoffs in Revelstoke, he contracted bacterial menengitis and never fully recovered from it,” said team spokesperson Alex Draper.

“You don’t fill those shoes . . . you can’t. You just honour him every time you step on the ice.”

The Chiefs plan on doing exactly that at their home opener, Friday, Sept. 20 at Rutland Arena.

“I know there is not going to be a dry eye in the house,” Draper said.

The KIJHL will also celebrate Sheridan’s legacy by having every player place a sticker, with the initials GS, on their helmets.

The Chiefs will also offer GS stickers for sale to the public, with the proceeds going Braintrust, Sheridan’s favourite charity.

Last season, the Chiefs’ league-leading record was an incredible 44 wins and 3 losses — a record that will be hard to improve upon this season.

“We are going to be a little bit younger this year and missing some key pieces in Brody Dale and Devon Sutton,” said Chiefs coach Ken Law.

But so far, Law has liked what he has seen at training camp.

In particular, 16-year-old Prince George blueliner Ethan Porter.

“He is a real gritty kid who likes to compete,” Law said.

This season, if the Chiefs can manage the proper paperwork, the squad may feature a European flavour.

“From Finland,” Chiefs prospect Leo Harju said in regards to where he hails from.

The 17-year-old Finnish flash is in Canada to study.

Harju speaks little English, but is fluent in hockey and his skating sets him apart from most Chiefs prospects.

Harju came to camp a walk-on. However, if Hockey Canada approves a transfer, chances are he’ll earn a roster spot.

But regardless of who takes to the ice this season, the team has one goal.

“Do our best to win the Cyclone Taylor Cup for Grant,” Draper said.

Fulham 4-0 Millwall: On-loan Ivan Cavaleiro scores twice as Cottagers thrash Lions

Ivan Cavaleiro scored twice and Aleksandar Mitrovic netted his third goal in as many games as free-flowing Fulham demolished Millwall to register a third successive Championship victory.

Cavaleiro lashed a fine opener into the top corner for Fulham – who enjoyed a remarkable 84.5% possession – and later latched on to Tom Cairney’s pass to round Bartosz Bialkowski for their fourth goal.

In between, the Wolves winger crossed for fellow loanee Anthony Knockaert, on loan from Brighton, to open his Fulham account with a stooping header.

Mitrovic scored Fulham’s third from the penalty spot after being brought down by Bialkowski as the Cottagers brought Millwall’s unbeaten start to the season to a resounding halt.

  • Relive Wednesday’s Championship action

The scoreline did not flatter Scott Parker’s side, who outmatched Millwall in every department and produced a real statement performance as they seek an immediate return to the Premier League.

Before Cavaleiro opened the scoring, Mitrovic saw a header well saved by Bialkowski but after that Fulham were truly clinical with their finishing.

The Portugal winger, who scored Fulham’s winner at Huddersfield on Friday, cut inside and past two men to fire home a brilliant opening goal and then set up the hosts’ second on a plate for Knockaert.

Millwall, who had won two and drawn one of their opening three games, had their best spell early in the second half but former Fulham striker Matt Smith poked a weak effort straight at Marcus Bettinelli.

From there, Steven Sessegnon saw a cross deflected on to the bar before Mitrovic’s spot-kick, won by his alertness in the box, and Cavaleiro rounded off the rout.

Fulham had lost their past 10 London league derbies – all in the top-flight last season – but put that miserable run to an end against the Lions who, ironically, were the last side they beat in a capital clash in April 2018.
