Additional minute Struggling teams LONDON (AP): In an English Premier League campaign about restoring pride at Chelsea, the fallen champions still ensure their games cannot be ignored. It’s not just fascination with watching a wealthy team in decline. Yesterday, a dreary opening 45 minutes against Everton made way for a thrilling second half that started with John Terry’s own goal and ended with the captain scoring in the right net in the eighth minute of stoppage time to clinch a 3-3 draw. Even Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink – unbeaten since replacing the fired Jose Mourinho last month – accepted Terry was offside when he flicked the ball past goalkeeper Tim Howard in stoppage time. Everton manager Roberto Martinez was aggrieved that the referee played an additional minute of injury time when seven had been indicated on the fourth official’s board just after Ramiro Funes Mori made it 3-2 in the 90th minute. Everton led through Terry’s own goal and Kevin Mirallas’ strike on the turn before Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas scored for Chelsea. “There is an understandable feeling of disappointment in having to drop two points in a game that we had to play seven minutes of injury time with the last action happening in seven minutes and 51 seconds,” Martinez said. The surprise leaders once again were Leicester, the team that was battling relegation a year ago. And yet yesterday represented a missed opportunity for the team led by former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri. By drawing 1-1 with bottom-place Aston Villa after Shinji Okazaki’s opener was cancelled out by Rudy Gestede, Leicester are only on top by a point. Arsenal can reclaim top spot by just drawing at Stoke today. Between Leicester and Arsenal are ever-present Manchester City. Sergio Aguero, twice, and Fabian Delph and David Sivla scored to power City to a 4-0 rout of Crystal Palace. There was a pair of significant wins, however, for struggling teams. Bournemouth halted a four-match winless run with a 3-0 victory over Norwich that was completed by $17 million record signing Benik Afobe, a recent recruit for the newcomers, after goals from Dan Gosling and Charlie Daniels. The win lifted Bournemouth a place above Norwich into 15th – only a point behind Chelsea. Newcastle climbed out of the relegation zone to move two points behind Norwich by beating West Ham 2-1 through first-half goals from Ayoze Perez and Georginio Wijnaldum. With fifth-place West Ham losing, it was an even better day for Tottenham, which moved four points ahead of its London rival by coming from behind to beat Sunderland 4-1. James Ward-Prowse scored twice and Dusan Tadic as Southampton beat West Bromwich Albion 3-0.
ATLANTA, Georgia: The last time Jamaica tackled the United States at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, they appeared primed for the battle, reeling off some good first round performances, including a 1-0 victory over Honduras at New York Red Bulls Stadium that was hailed as the country’s best display in decades. In the Honduras game there were seven changes to the Jamaica line-up, as the team had already qualified for the knockout stage and players were rested for various reasons. For the next match against the United States, in the quarter-finals, the same seven changes were made to the Jamaica team. They lost 2-0. On Wednesday, both countries will meet in the semi-finals of the Gold Cup and Je-Vaughn ‘Hacker’ Watson, one of the players who provided some star quality in a wonderful offensive display that night in New Jersey is very much at the heart of Jamaica’s team again and believes the time is ripe for a win “There’s no better chance to beat them than right now. We’ve a very good bunch of guys who are playing well both sides of the ball in attack and defence. We’ve to go out there and believe in ourselves and beat this team,” he said, after training on Tuesday at Emery University. “The US are a hard fighting team, they’re going to put their best foot forward, no matter what, they’re not going to give up, whether they’re down 2-0, 3-0, we’ve to be disciplined and make sure we come out victorious,” Watson explained. “Now I think the guys are more determined. We’ve a lot to prove as Jamaican players right now. You can see the difference, we’re not conceding goals like before. In the tournament we’ve played four games and we’ve only conceded two goals,” he pointed out. Both teams are unbeaten, with three wins and one draw in four contests. Jamaica have a losing record against the US, 13 losses, one win and eight draws. However, they have played strong in this tournament, registering five goals and conceding two, while the US have also been hot, pumping in 10 while letting in two. Clint Dempsey has been their talisman, netting six of the goals, including his first hat-trick for his country in Saturday’s 6-0 quarter-final hammering of Cuba. Watson says they will have to put a lid on Dempsey and Michael Bradley, the US’s other top player. “They’re top quality players, Bradley and Dempsey. Dempsey is a good goalscorer, if he gets a half chance he’ll put it in; Dempsey is a guy who dictates the pace of the game, he’s always on the ball, so we’ll have to go out there and try to lock those players down,” Watson said. The midfielder, who has won man of the match awards in two matches, missed the last game against El Salvador with yellow cards, as well as striker Darren Mattocks, who picked up a red in the same match. “Coming back in the team I want to give a strong performance,” Watson said. “In the back of everybody’s mind we want to win the tournament and to win the tournament we’ve to get past the US. “The team vibe is good, I think anybody who goes out there is ready to die on the field. We’ve never beaten the US on US soil and everybody wants to make history and win the game. There’s no better chance than right now.”
