Ivanovic: Pressure is on City

first_imgBranislav Ivanovic believes Chelsea are ready and capable of stopping the Manchester City juggernaut as they prepare to travel to the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League and FA Cup. Oscar’s delightful free-kick earned a 1-0 win over Stoke on Sunday to set up an FA Cup fifth-round tie with City, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho’s favourites for the Premier League title. Mourinho thinks City, who are in contention for an unprecedented quadruple, have it all to lose after their investments in recent seasons. But his Chelsea side are in a position to pressurise City, who put their 100 per cent Premier League home record on the line against Chelsea on February 3, after a seventh straight win saw them advance in the FA Cup. Ivanovic agrees with his manager that City, and not Chelsea, are the ones under pressure. “Manchester City are playing great football, especially at home,” Ivanovic said. “They must feel pressure. When you know a big game is coming up and you know you’re playing at home and must win, it’s a different kind of feeling and preparation for the game. We must use that (against them). “It’s going to be a big challenge for us, but we know what we have to do to stop them. It’s important we play as a team, to be on top of our game and show more than we do normally to be successful. “We stay in touch. We know how hard these games will be and how important they will be psychologically. We must be ready for that. “These are the games for big guys, big players.” Right-back Ivanovic is one of Chelsea’s leading performers and Nemanja Matic showed enough on his full debut after re-signing from Benfica to demonstrate he has the potential to be a key cog in Mourinho’s team for years to come. Asked about fellow Serb Matic, Ivanovic said: “He can be a very important player for us. “He has signed a five-year deal so his future is here, step by step, he will be one of the most important (players). “He has improved massively from the last time he was here. It’s great. “He is the one who is leading the game, he asks for the ball and looks to go forward. Defensively he has improved a lot too. “He was my best mate the last time he was here, he is like my brother. We do a lot of things together. It’s nice to have him here and it’s much easier for me as well.” Ivanovic bade farewell to another friend last week when Juan Mata left for Manchester United. “It was very sad and emotional for us because he was one of the loveliest guys in the squad,” Ivanovic said. “(But) this was the best thing for all sides. We will see in the future how important it was for us. “I think Chelsea did a great deal and let a player who is not playing at the moment leave for another club. Manchester United is important for him as a player.” Stoke’s attentions now turn to the Premier League, where they face Sunderland on Wednesday. The Potters are four points clear of the relegation zone entering the midweek fixtures following a five-match winless run in the Premier League which goalkeeper Asmir Begovic hopes will come to an end at the Stadium of Light. Begovic told Stoke Player: “We’re disappointed we’re out of the FA Cup. We’re going to shake it off pretty quickly. “I believe in the quality of the team. As long as we stick together and keep believing in what we’re trying to do, I think we’ll be fine.” Begovic made a number of fine saves against Chelsea on his return from a broken finger. He added: “The finger’s great. It doesn’t cause me any problems whatsoever. It was great to be back in action.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Syracuse men’s soccer drops 2nd straight in loss at Louisville

first_imgAll Louisville needed was Thiaw’s 23rd minute goal to seal the win. Thiaw scored by rolling Kamal Miller, drawing Syracuse goalkeeper Hendrik Hilpert out and driving the ball by him in the goal. It was the only blemish in a stout defense effort by Louis Cross, Kamal Miller and Mo Adams, McIntyre said.“(Thiaw) had that one opportunity, he took it and tonight that was the difference in the game,” McIntyre said.It’s the 6-foot-2, 170-pound junior’s ninth goal of the year, putting him just one behind Notre Dame’s Jon Gallagher (10) for the ACC lead.McIntyre said sophomore defender Miles Robinson, who has missed Syracuse’s last two games since getting called to the United States Under-20 National Team, returns to campus next week. He played all 90 minutes Friday in the national team’s 5-3 loss to Holland and has one more game this weekend with the team.Syracuse, which has four regular season games left, returns home next Friday for a match vs. No. 18 Virginia Tech at 7 p.m. Comments Published on October 7, 2016 at 11:39 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+center_img An early Louisville goal from the foot of one of the country’s top goal scorers, Mohamed Thiaw, further buried Syracuse in its midseason slide. The goal proved to be the difference in the No. 8 Cardinals’ (9-1-2, 4-0-1 Atlantic Coast) 1-0 win over No. 3 Syracuse (8-3-1, 2-2-1) before 2,594 fans Friday night at Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium.After jumping out to a historic 8-0 start to its season, Syracuse has gone winless in its last four games for the first time since October 2011.The Orange has lost to top-10 opponents twice in the last two weeks. Mix into SU’s recent funk an upset loss to Albany on Tuesday night and a scoreless tie to North Carolina last Friday night.Louisville entered Friday’s match on a tear. The Cardinals had scored six goals in two of their previous three matches, including a 6-1 pounding over then-No. 16 Virginia. They have not lost at home yet but Cardinals head coach Ken Lolla thought his team was a little flat against Syracuse’s pressure.“I don’t think we played particularly well tonight,” Lolla told the Louisville Cardinal, a local newspaper. “And that’s why I thought this was a gritty effort for us … I think we would have preferred a lot more possession.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAt the 84-minute mark, Cardinals goalkeeper Stefan Cleveland made a diving save to keep UofL’s lead. Ten minutes earlier, Chris Nanco missed high on a shot to tie it. Early in the second half, Sergio Camargo missed high on a shot, too. Cleveland had six saves.Eighteen minutes in, Camargo missed just wide on a chance from within the 6-yard box. Nanco and Camargo have not created for the SU offense, which has stalled since the Cornell game two and a half weeks ago. Camargo has yet to score all year and Nanco has not scored since Sept. 9, a seven-game span.Courtesy of Dalton Ray | The Louisville CardinalSyracuse put “dangerous” crosses on the box but couldn’t capitalize, head coach Ian McIntyre said. The Orange outshot UofL 11-6 and tripled the Cardinals’ two shots on goal, with six. SU outshot UofL 8-3 in the second half despite the loss.“I think we responded very well from a disappointing result and disappointing display on Tuesday,” McIntyre said.last_img read more
