MANCHESTER, England - Criticized for picking a perceived weakened lineup against Real Madrid in midweek, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers can justify that controversial selection if his regulars return to hand Chelsea a first Premier League loss of the season on Saturday. Chris Bosh Jersey .Rodgers was accused by some of betraying Liverpools rich European pedigree by dropping his star names for Tuesdays Champions League match in Spain, appearing to show he valued the Chelsea match higher. Liverpool lost 1-0.If the gamble pays off and the likes of rested quartet Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling, Jordan Henderson and Mario Balotelli return to inspire Liverpool to victory at Anfield, some of Rodgers critics may fall silent.Chelsea, though, is unbeaten in all competitions, leads the league by four points and has returned from the northwest with draws at Manchester City and Manchester United already this campaign.Liverpool is in seventh place — 12 points behind Chelsea — and showing none of the form that took the team to a second-place finish last season.Here are some other things to watch out for in the Premier League this weekend;___MISERABLE MOURINHOChelsea is undefeated in 14 games this season, top of both its domestic and Champions League standings and has no apparent weaknesses in its squad.You would not know it listening to its manager over the past week.After the 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers last weekend, a sullen Jose Mourinho said he was not happy with his team and complained about the lack of atmosphere inside Stamford Bridge. Playing here is like playing in an empty stadium, he said.Then after a 1-1 draw with Maribor in the Champions League on Wednesday, Mourinho criticized his players for lacking focus and underestimating opponents.A win at Anfield should cheer up Mourinho, though. After Saturday, Chelsea will have played arguably its three toughest away games at Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool and is sure to be in first place.___CITY CRISISMemories of a Premier League-League Cup double last season are fading fast at Man City.City manager Manuel Pellegrini said Wednesday his team was going through a crisis of confidence after a 2-1 loss to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League left the English champions bottom of the group and unlikely to qualify for the knockout stage.City has also stuttered in the Premier League and is six points behind Chelsea going into Saturdays match at Queens Park Rangers.We must find out why (there is a crisis) by talking to the players every day, Pellegrini said. These players are important players so I dont understand why they cannot play in the Champions League.A 1-0 derby win over United on Sunday is the only bright point in a dreadful two weeks that has seen City lose to West Ham in the league, Newcastle in the League Cup and then CSKA in Europe.___DEFENSIVE ISSUESManchester United also has a crisis — in central defence — which is hampering its hopes of bouncing back from its worst 10-game start to a Premier League season with a win at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.United manager Louis van Gaal is without the injured Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones, the suspended Chris Smalling and also likely Jonny Evans, who hasnt played since Sept. 21 because of injury.United ended the derby with a centre-back combination of central midfielder Michael Carrick and 19-year-old Paddy McNair and could persist with that pairing, although youngster Tyler Blackett could also come into consideration.With 13 points from 10 games, 10th-place United hasnt made such a poor start to a league season since 1986 — when Ron Atkinson was fired and replaced by Alex Ferguson.The 20-time champions will be big favourites against Palace, which has not won in four games.___SUBLIME SANCHEZAfter a slow start, Alexis Sanchez is showing just why Arsenal spent 35 million pounds ($60 million) to buy him from Barcelona this summer.The Chile forward has scored five goals in his last three games, and 11 overall in his debut season at Emirates Stadium.Hes a good leader and something that we havent had in the Arsenal team before, Arsenal winger Theo Walcott said. Hes a dream to play with.With Walcott back after 10 months out with knee-ligament damage and Danny Welbeck settling in quickly after his deadline-day move from Man United, Arsenal is looking a potent attacking force once again, scoring at least two goals in its last five matches.Defensively, the team is suspect, though. Arsenal threw away a 3-0 lead after 60 minutes to draw 3-3 with Anderlecht in the Champions League on Tuesday and is hoping centre back Laurent Koscielny will be fit again for the trip to Swansea on Saturday.Arsenal is fourth in the standings.___ELSEWHERESecond-place Southampton continues to confound the doubters and will go for a fifth straight win in all competitions when it hosts Leicester on Saturday.Also Saturday, fifth-place West Ham is at home to Aston Villa, which has lost six games in a row, and last-place Burnley seeks its first win of the season at home against Hull.On Sunday, its: Sunderland vs. Everton; Tottenham vs. Stoke; and West Bromwich vs. Newcastle. Hassan Whiteside Jersey . Terry came from Boston along with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce but has appeared in just 35 games after a knee injury, averaging 4.5 points on 36 per cent shooting. Evans was a favourite of fans but not coach Jason Kidd, who used him in just 30 of their 51 games. Tyler Johnson Jersey . Every. Single. Game. Thats 1,230 in total to cover the regular season. The man is Corey Sznajder, a soft-spoken 23-year-old Salisbury University grad who lives in Annapolis, Maryland and has been charting zone entries and zone exits throughout the NHL. I love big projects, he said. No kidding. At the 2013 Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, I met Eric Tulsky, who presented research on the value of controlled zone entries (short answer: about twice as valuable to enter with control of the puck rather than dumping it in) and Sznajder had charted a couple hundred games that were included in that study. http://www.authenticbasketballshopheat.info/edrice-adebayo-heat-jersey/ . Pikul Khueanpet scored early in the second half and Kanjana Sungngoen made it 2-0 in the 65th minute of the playoff. Tuyet Dong narrowed the margin with goal four minutes from time. The win gave Thailand fifth place at the Asian Cup and the last of the continents qualifying spots for the 2015 Womens World Cup in Canada.The European Tour and Ladies European Tour have combined to make history as they both stage events at the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam this week in Morocco. The men will tee off on the Red Course in the Trophee Hassan II - live on Sky Sports 4 HD from 11.30am on Thursday - while over on the Blue Course, the women will be competing in the Lalla Meryem Cup.For the first time, the two organisations are running concurrent events in a bid to encourage participation and attract fans to the sport and organisers have said this will not be a one-off. With less than 100 days to go until golf returns to the Olympics for the first time in 112 years, the two Tour chief executives are hopeful this can act as a show-piece for Rio. Past European Solheim Cup team members Laura Davies (left) and Melissa Reid will be heading up the female field in Morocco Its terrific to be here alongside the LET to stage the mens and womens tournaments just three months prior to the Olympics, Keith Pelley, the European Tour chief executive, said.There are many Olympic hopefuls competing in both tournaments, so its a great opportunity to showcase the strength of the mens and the womens games. Ladies European Tour CEO Ivan Khodabakhsh looks ahead to the Lalla Meryem Cup where women and men from the European Tour are playing at the same time on di I hope its the start of an increased collaboration to come between the two Tours. We can grow and get stronger together.The inclusion of golf in the Olympics has been met with varying degrees of support and while the men and women will play in different weeks in Brazil, there is a positivity abouut having events that run at the same time. Rodney McGruder Jersey. #160;Hopefully in the future we will have more events like this one, and maybe one day we might have a mixed event because it would be fun, Alexander Levy, a two-time winner on the European Tour, told the organisation. I think its pretty special to have both events in the same week at the same club, and Im really grateful to the people who had this amazing idea. Gwladys Nocera, defending champion The tours are hopeful that the innovation will allow golf to follow other successful concurrent male and female tours such as tennis. We need to look beyond the borders of golf and in other sports we can see the best practices, Ivan Khodabakhsh, of the Ladies European Tour, said. We can see in tennis and in other sports, actually having both genders side by side in a great event competing gives so much more colour, provides so much more for the fans and hopefully we can gain new fans coming to the sport.Another event has been confirmed to combine the two tours when the inaugural European Championships are held at Gleneagles in 2018. May is National Golf Month.
