London: There were too many saves for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea to even remember. Everyone else was certainly counting: Eleven. The most by any goalkeeper in a Premier League match this season. And they were all in the second half to thwart a Tottenham comeback. The Spaniard’s virtuoso goalkeeping performance protected a 1-0 victory in the Premier League on Sunday after Marcus Rashford’s first-half strike, giving United a sixth successive victory in all competitions since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho. “I said to David at halftime, ‘You might have to make a save here, you have to keep your concentration,'” Solskjaer said. “He didn’t have to keep his concentration because he was never allowed to relax. He is a fantastic goalkeeper. I think he’s the best in the world.” Few would dispute that on Sunday as De Gea was masterful with his hands and feet, particularly frustrating efforts by Harry Kane and Dele Alli to equalize. “I don’t even remember some of them,” De Gea said, when asked for his favorite save. Rashford helped out his teammate. “The near-post save from the corner was the best one,” the striker said, alongside De Gea.

And sometimes with less opportunities you score, but there’s no complaints.” The only goal came in the 44th minute at Wembley Stadium after Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier gave the ball away. Paul Pogba sent a long, high diagonal pass to Rashford who controlled the ball with one touch and then sent it low beyond goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. By passing his first significant test, Solskjaer strengthened his bid to keep the manager’s job into next season. In particular, he got the better of Pochettino, who has been considered the favorite to be hired as Mourinho’s permanent successor. Although still third in the standings, Tottenham has now lost back-to-back league home games and top-scorer Harry Kane limped off at the end. United is yet to rise from sixth under Solskjaer but the record 20-time English champion is now only behind Arsenal on goal difference and six points adrift of Chelsea in the fourth and final Champions League place. And the mood has been transformed at United since Mourinho was fired and former fans’ favorite Solskjaer was brought in on loan from Norwegian side Molde. “The manager brought some happiness, the players are playing well and the team is very strong now,” De Gea said. “This is the real Manchester United.” For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
Bill Bryce, who has spent over 40 years at the highest levels of golf administration, has received England Golf’s Gerald Micklem Award for his outstanding contribution to the game. He was presented with the award by England Golf’s outgoing President, Nigel Evans, at the organisation’s annual meeting today. “I feel honoured and delighted to receive this award and to join such a distinguished list of former recipients,” said Bill. “Golf has been a huge part of my life and it has given me so much. A great deal of that is due to my involvement with the English Golf Union and England Golf, for which I am very grateful.” Bill is a Scot who has been one of the most prominent figures in England golfing life, having been President of the former English Golf Union and, most recently, chairing the England Golf Partnership for ten years until his retirement last year. But his contribution to the game extends far beyond England, for he has been a member of the R&A since 1974, chairing three of its committees, and has also represented England on the European Golf Association council and been a member of its championship committee. As a referee he has officiated at 10 Open Championships, three US Masters, one Ryder Cup and two Walker Cups as well as the St Andrews and Jacques Leglise Trophies. He has also visited the United States and Japan on many occasions representing the R&A. Bill began playing golf in Glasgow, where he was born. He was reserve for the Scottish Boys’ team v England Boys in 1951 and later captained the Glasgow University team, receiving a “Blue” and going on to play for Scottish Universities. Bill qualified as a Scottish solicitor in 1957 and after two years in practice in Glasgow joined the Distillers Company in London as a legal adviser. When Distillers was taken over by Guinness in 1986 Bill continued with that company until his retirement in 1994. Bill joined Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club in 1960 and was club champion in 1963 and 1974, the year in which he became the youngest-ever Captain, apart from H R H The Prince of Wales who was Captain in 1926. He still holds that distinction. He was President of the club from 2003 to 2013 and on his retirement was elected a Life Member Bill played for Surrey during the 1970s and was county captain for three years, going on to be County President from 1986 to 1988. He represented Surrey on the EGU Council and was Chairman of the Championship and National Coaching committees. Bill was elected a Vice-President of the Artisan Golfers’ Association in December 1992. He was elected President in November 2003 following the death of the previous incumbent Sir Anthony Hollis, a month or two earlier. He is still President of the AGA. Bill no longer plays competitive golf but still enjoys a few holes with friends at Royal Mid-Surrey and Walton Heath, of which he is an Honorary Member. He tries to get to the other clubs of which he is a member at least once a year: Prestwick in Scotland, The R&A in St Andrews and Merion in the United States.

FLAVIEN PRAT, WILD AT HEART, WINNER: “I had a good trip. She didn’t break very well but I got a good trip.“The pace was fast but that’s the way it set up today. She won pretty easy though, she was much better today than last time out.“I worked her before her last race and I felt she was much better today. I was pretty confident going into today.” NOTES: The winning owner is Ramona Bass of Fort Worth, TX. TRAINER QUOTES RICHARD MANDELLA, WILD AT HEART, WINNER: “After the scratches, the race got a bit easier. We were anxious to see what she could do on the turf, but I’ll take what happened here today.“She impressed me today. She’s always tries to be a good mare but just wasn’t quite breaking through.“This seems to be a good distance for her. She’s quick enough to sprint if you try that and she’s able to go little further as well. We just really needed to win a stake so I feel good about this.“You know I’m partial to Flavien. To me, he looked great when he was 18 years old. I think he does make a difference. I think he’s one of the best that we’ve seen in a long time.” JOCKEY QUOTES

Man Utd hero Ince warns Ole after Woodward commentsby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United hero Paul Ince says club chief Ed Woodward giving manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a vote of confidence is “the worst thing you can get as a manager”.Woodward this week gave Solskjaer his public backing, suggesting the pressure is off the Norwegian for the time being.”You hear chairmen come out and say that and then next minute the manager is gone,” Ince told Mirror Football. “You hate it, it is the worst thing you can get as a manager a vote of confidence.”Woodward gave Ole the contract, so he has to say that, but I’m not seeing progression like I am at Chelsea under Frank Lampard.”So unless that changes then it will change the way people think – it will change the way fans think. Obviously Man United fans love him, he scored the winner in 99′, but fans can turn and once they do it’s a tough one.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

When Dortmund switched back to 4-2-3-1 after the break, we adjusted again and took control.“We had prepared to press them in certain areas of the pitch and they changed their system, so that was no longer valid. The most important thing I told the lads was not to lose possession in central areas, as that is where they push forward on the counter.“Roberto Gagliardini, Nicolò Barella and Marcelo Brozovic did a great job both in defending and attacking. I often tell Brozo off for attacking too much, but he had a great game tonight with both phases.“Barella is so generous and passionate, but he does give me anxiety attacks when he gets booked after 10-15 minutes…”
