Fallen powers Manchester United, Chelsea slip further in English Premier League

first_img United had dictated the pace of the game, showcasing a newly discovered vigour and passing precision, but only scored in the 61st minute. It was a passage of play that demonstrated the potential in Louis van Gaal’s side. The build-up involved interplay between Juan Mata and Anthony Martial. Then Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s cross was teed up by Wayne Rooney for Jesse Lingard to volley on the turn into the net. “We continued with our good, attacking football,” said Van Gaal, whose side held Chelsea 0-0 at home in December. “We have created a lot of chances here at Chelsea. It’s a nasty away game, I think, and one that’s not so easy. “The last few years Manchester United haven’t won here, so it’s not an easy match and we took the lead with a fantastic goal. A fantastic cross also. Then you can control the game, but in the last quarter we gave it away.” On the south coast, though, Arsenal emerged from their January slump. Arsenal had failed to win in four league games and not scored in three of them until travelling to Bournemouth. Mesut Ozil scored his first goal since December’s reverse fixture against Bournemouth and within 90 seconds Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ended a 17-month league goal drought. “We had four games without a win when you play at the top that’s a long period, so your confidence drops a little bit,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. Arsenal moved behind second-place north London rivals Tottenham on goal difference. Coming up for Arsenal next Sunday is a home match against Leicester, the surprise leaders which sent Manchester City tumbling to fourth by winning their encounter 3-1 on Saturday. “Leicester running away and us playing them next week, (makes) the game interesting,” Wenger said. “It was very important for us to win today.” FRESH VIGOUR LONDON (AP): A second stalemate of the season between Chelsea and Manchester United saw the fallen powers slip further from relevance in this unusual Premier League season. The 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge did little to help either team yesterday, which began with Arsenal beating Bournemouth 2-0 to rise to third. United remain lodged in fifth and the gap to the fourth Champions League place has grown to six points. Chelsea remain in the lower reaches of the standings – 13th – closer to the relegation zone than their usual place among the top four elite. The one positive for Chelsea is that the ailing champions remain unbeaten since Guus Hiddink was brought in as manager until the end of the season in December to replace the fired Jose Mourinho. The Blues left it late to rescue a point against United. The game had entered stoppage time when Cesc Fabregas threaded a pass beyond a slipping Daley Blind to Diego Costa, who rounded goalkeeper David De Gea before netting the equaliser.last_img read more

Prosecutors argued that Rademaker used aliases, among them Paul, to lure women for sexual liaisons. His ruse turned deadly when Pandelios, a newlywed and the mother of a 13-month-old son, refused Rademaker’s advances after she met him near the Monte Cristo Campground, about 15 miles north of La Caada Flintridge. After she was raped, Pandelios begged for her life, promising Rademaker she wouldn’t report him if he let her go. He bragged years later that he then drowned her in a creek, according to trial testimony of an ex-girlfriend. A registered sex offender was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole Tuesday for the 1992 kidnapping and murder of an aspiring Northridge model. David Rademaker, 42, of Burbank lured Kimberly Pandelios into the Angeles National Forest on the premise of a photo shoot, only to rape her and drown her in a shallow creek, prosecutors argued during a monthlong trial. The jury of eight men and four women decided Rademaker didn’t deserve the death penalty. He was eligible for death because he was charged with the special circumstance of kidnapping. “We’re absolutely thrilled,” said defense attorney Chad Calabria. “We think it was absolutely the right verdict. We are disappointed they found him guilty in the first place. But certainly they came to the right conclusion here.” last_img read more
