Mourinho demands killer instinct

first_img “This is the easy direction to go: to build a team, to close the team, to make it compact, to wait for a goal, waiting for a counter-attack. “This is not what we want to do and because it’s not what we want to do, the way to kill opponents is to score goals.” Arsenal lost 6-3 at Manchester City, who are demonstrating a clinical cutting edge, particularly at home. But asked if Chelsea should be more like City, Mourinho said: “Man City is one point behind us, so they need to be more like us.” Chelsea beat City in October, when Fernando Torres scored his most recent Premier League goal prior to his opening strike against Palace. But Mourinho is eager Chelsea show the ruthlessness of a team like City, who also netted six against another title rival, Tottenham. “When you don’t kill opponents playing well, when in the game you have bad moments – because you always have bad moments in the game – you are in trouble,” Mourinho added. “You put yourself into trouble and you panic a little bit. When you lose possession of the ball or when they get a free-kick or when they get a corner or when they put a long ball in the box, you shake. And because you shake, you make mistakes.” Chelsea are within sight of Christmas Day at the Barclays Premier League summit after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat of Crystal Palace saw Mourinho’s men move two points behind their next league opponents Arsenal. “The base of our game is to kill opponents by scoring goals, because we don’t want to go in the direction of being a more defensive team,” Mourinho said. Jose Mourinho is demanding Chelsea develop a ruthless streak in front of goal to avoid the feeling of panic which can set in when a side is struggling to kill off opponents.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

ICC World Cup Alex Hales withdrawn from England squad for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

first_imghighlights Alex Hales has been withdrawn from all England squads.Hales had failed a recreational drug Test.England begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa. For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.center_img New Delhi: Alex Hales, one of the key members of the England cricket team, has been withdrawn from the preliminary squad for the upcoming five-match series against Pakistan and also for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 beginning on May 30. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed in a statement that Hales was withdrawn from the squad. “The decision has been taken by the ECB managing director of England men’s cricket and the England national cricket selectors, having considered what is in the best interests of the England team. Consideration was given to creating the right environment within the team and ensuring that there are no unnecessary distractions and that the team is in the best position to succeed going into this crucial period,” the England and Wales Cricket Board said in a statement.Hales had raised a few eyebrows when he announced that he was taking a break from cricket during the Royal London Cup. However, it has now emerged that Hales is serving a 21-day suspension for a failed drugs test. In a report in The Guardian, Hales has been suspended for 21 days for failing a drug test. The right-hander was found to be at variance with England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) recreational drugs policy for the second time in his career. The opener is understood to have tested positive for a recreational drug in recent weeks and his selection into the provisional squad means the English selectors were not aware of transgression.RELATEDHales was suspended and fined by England last year after he and Ben Stokes were involved in a street fight outside a Bristol nightclub in September 2017. Hales drugs violation was detected after he underwent a routine hair follicle test, which all professional cricketers in England are required to undergo at the start and end of every season. The test can detect substances in the system for up to three months. This has put Hales’ World Cup place in jeopardy and this has already mounted England’s woes in their build-up to the World Cup which will involve a five-match series against Pakistan.According to the rules of the England and Wales Cricket Board, players that fail a recreational drug test for the first time are not named, with the matter dealt with internally by the ECB and the Professional Cricketers’s Association who in turn offer rehabilitative support. Once a test is failed for a second time, an automatic three-week ban comes into effect from the date the player is informed of the results, along with a fine of five per-cent of their annual salary. A third failed test and a player could have his domestic and international contract terminated immediately.England begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa on May 30 at The Oval and the hosts will be aiming to break their World Cup jinx, with England hosting the World Cup for the fifth time and the first since 1999.last_img read more
