Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp seeking consistency

first_img The Reds’ 1-0 home win on Boxing Day against Leicester was their first in four Barclays Premier League games, and directly followed a 3-0 loss at Watford. Since Klopp took over in October, Liverpool’s record in the league shows four victories – including impressive triumphs at Chelsea and Manchester City – plus three draws and three defeats. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is in no doubt his players have plenty of talent and character but has expressed ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Sunderland his eagerness for them to develop some consistency. And as he looked ahead to the top-flight game against the Black Cats, the German said: “There’s no doubt about the individual quality of the players, there’s no doubt about the character. “What we have to create is a stable level of performance, that’s what we have to work on. “Now the next station is Sunderland and we have to go there and be concentrated from the first second, like we were against Leicester. “(It was) a really good start in that game – I was happy about this – and now we have to do it again. “That’s the thing. If we do this, then we can get results in a row. But it’s no presents, we have to work for it.” Klopp, whose side are 10th in the table, has emphasised the importance of securing three points against Sunderland rather than trying to “show how football should be”. And he is confident his men will take the right mental approach as they face a side currently struggling in second-bottom place. “Now we have to play against Sunderland and we don’t want to go there and show how football should be,” Klopp said. “We’ll go there and want to win – that’s what we have to show. “There’s no reason to doubt the mentality of the team (or worry) that they’ll maybe think ‘it’s only Sunderland’ or anything like that. How I know them, nobody in the team is like this. “We want to improve our situation, we want to develop, and we want to get more points in this very, very important moment in the league, the end of December, January. There are so many points in the end of December and January. “It’s unbelievable and you should take every one you can.” Liverpool are likely to be without striker Divock Origi for Wednesday’s match. Klopp has admitted it would take a ”miracle” for Origi to recover from the hamstring injury he suffered during the Leicester contest and he is expected to join frontman Daniel Sturridge on the sidelines as he works his way back to match fitness from a similar problem. Jordon Ibe has returned to training after illness and a late decision will be taken on his involvement, but fellow midfielder James Milner is still out with a calf injury.

(AP Photo/Brynn Anderson)MIAMI — Dwyane Wade jumped onto a courtside table and thumped himself on the chest three times. He took a victory lap, waving a towel.

Wade caught the rebound with about a second left.Off the glass, for the win.From there, bedlam.The fans erupted in cheers. Some of the Warriors watched the replay on the overhead screens with a look of disbelief, and after a moment Warriors star Stephen Curry came over to offer congratulations after presumably their last head-to-head meeting before Wade retires after this season.“I told Steph, ‘I needed this one on my way out. Y’all get enough,’” Wade said. “But it was cool. I think the one thing cool for me was I’ve got younger teammates that heard about some of the things you do but don’t always get an opportunity to see it.”Wade scored 25 points to help Miami snap a six-game home losing streak.“Sometimes you just need to be lucky,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after giving Wade a long bear-hug in a jubilant postgame locker room. “We’ve had so many of these breaks go against us.”Goran Dragic led the Heat with 27 points. Josh Richardson added 21, and Miami made 18 3-pointers.Klay Thompson scored 36 points for the Warriors. Durant added 29 and Curry scored 24 for the Warriors, whose lead over Denver atop the Western Conference dropped to a half-game.Golden State rallied from 19 down to win 120-118 at home on Feb. 10, and dug its way out of an even bigger hole this time — but couldn’t finish it off.

The Heat had no timeouts, no way to set up a play, and there was no way anyone could have drawn up what happened.Wade brought the ball up, drove into the lane, stutter-stepped and lost the ball for a brief moment. He gathered it and shoveled it to Dion Waiters, who was double-teamed and couldn’t get off a shot. Waiters tossed it back to Wade, who shot-faked Durant in the air and then had his first try blocked by Jordan Bell.ADVERTISEMENT “Dwyane just hit an unbelievable shot,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “It was going in as soon as it left his hand.”Dragic had 25 points by halftime, getting 20 of those in the second quarter alone — setting Heat single-quarter and any-half records for a reserve. He had 11 points in a span of 69 seconds in the second quarter, and a pair of free throws with 2:59 left in the half put Miami up 69-45.Against most teams, even in the first half, a 24-point lead might have been enough.The Warriors, of course, are not most teams.Back-to-back 3-pointers by Durant and Thompson helped Golden State get the lead down to 74-59 by halftime. The Warriors cut the lead to seven on two separate occasions in the third quarter, and kept whittling away in the fourth — getting within six when Draymond Green rattled in a 3-pointer from the right corner with 8:20 left, then 106-103 when Curry connected from deep on the next possession.The Warriors led for all of 1:14 in the second half. Wade didn’t let them leave with the lead.“There is something special about him making a play like that, this his last year in this building,” Curry said. “I’d much rather see him jumping on the scorer’s table when we’re not on the court. Deep down, it was cool to see even though we lost.”TIP-INSWarriors: DeMarcus Cousins (load management and Achilles recovery) got the night off, and the Warriors said he will play in Orlando on Thursday. … Wednesday was the sixth anniversary of Curry’s career-high 54-point game at Madison Square Garden, and the third anniversary of his game-winner from about 40 feet to win at Oklahoma City.Heat: Wade, who has exchanged jerseys with an opponent after almost every game this season, kept this one as a keepsake. … Miami was without Hassan Whiteside (hip strain) and James Johnson (shoulder sprain). Justise Winslow (knee) and Derrick Jones Jr. (flu) … The 74 first-half points tied the second-most in Heat history. Miami scored 75 against the Los Angeles Clippers on Nov. 19, 1997, and 74 against Dallas on Nov. 11, 1999. … Udonis Haslem checked in during the third quarter, playing at home for the second time this season.

He was reportedly under the influence of alcohol.Thomas however, based on previous threats, refused to give him access and it was then he carried out the gruesome attack. He first dealt two blows to Thomas and then proceeded to chop his wife who was in the guard hut.His wife reportedly ran out in an attempt to escape but due to her injuries she collapsed a short distance away. The man went after her and continued to chop the woman until she died.After committing the act, he turned up at the Mahaica Police Station where he confessed to the murder and handed over the weapon.At the home of the dead woman, her mother, Yvonne Andrews was inconsolable while flanked by family.She recalled that her son-in-law was consuming alcohol in the village all day Wednesday and was heard telling people he did not want his wife to work as a guard.The woman started to work with Home Safe Security Firm six weeks ago.“He nah wuk… he ah drink the rum… she get a lil wuk, she want money to maintain she self”. The mother recalled that on the faithfull night, her daughter was visiting.Soon after, there was a power failure and she heard the suspect calling for his wife but she instructed her not to answer. After sometime, and he did not get a response, he left.After meh know he gone, meh call she cousin who does wuk with she to come collect she but the cousin de done left to go to the school”. Nevertheless, Pitt’s father, who had just arrived home, accompanied her to the school where she met Thomas.Upon her husband’s return home, Andrews noted that he was confronted by the suspect who claimed that he was going to his brother’s place. At that time, the aggrieved mother saw the cutlass in his hands but did not know his intentions.“Meh daughter and she cousin went in the guard house and bin ah put up cardboard because de rain de falling… He chop Brenda fuss – one on she belly, one on she back and one on she finger. Then Brenda run way and then he attack Cindy… He chop she then he turnover she and finish she off, dah ah wah meh hear”.In tears the woman stated that she received a call from Thomas’ daughter informing her that her daughter was dead. She immediately ran to the school where she saw her daughter’s bloodied body lying in a pool of water and mud.As she attempted to lift her daughter, she realised that her head was almost severed and her body bore several wounds. She noted that her daughter did not deserve such a horrific death.As she continued, the devastated mother told Guyana Times that the man would normally threaten her daughter but she always passed it off as a joke and never reported it.At the home of Thomas, her son Joel told Guyana Times he was asleep when he heard his mother calling for help. In a panic, he rushed out to check on his mother but the front door would not open, forcing him to jump from the veranda. As he looked as his mother, she was bleeding from her abdomen and immediately summoned a taxi and took her to the Mahaicony Hospital but she was subsequently transferred.On their way to the hospital she told him what had transpired. In shock, he noted that he was not surprised at the man’s action, claiming that he had previously threatened his mother.He was relieved to disclose that his mother is in a stable condition.Meanwhile, at the scene, several of the woman’s colleagues expressed sadness upon hearing the devastating news. The now dead woman was described as an easy-going person with a lot of potential.One woman, Millicent Craig, told Guyana Times that the man would frequently visit the woman’s workplace with a cutlass and would carry out threats. The now dead woman was urged to make an official complaint to the police but she never did.Pitt leaves to mourn her parents and two siblings.Her murderer, her husband of 13 years, is expected to be charged shortly.
