Klopp: We won’t get carried away

first_img“What would you think about me now if I said I think we can catch Chelsea?” he asked. “Crazy? Ambitious? Maybe you can believe I am not too interested in that.“Chelsea do not look at the moment as if they are going to struggle, but if they do someone could still catch them. What we must do now is to win as many of our games as possible.”Klopp also lavished praise on forward Sadio Mané after the Senegal international scored two first%u2011half goals.“He could have had more,” Klopp said. “Of course we missed him in January, anyone would, but that’s only part of the truth. We knew we had to show a reaction today, we knew we had to show fight, and we did, right from the start.“Everyone was waiting for a game like this. Sadio was fantastic, but so were Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino, still sprinting after 90 minutes. Now we have shown what we can still do, we have to use the rest of the season well and maximise our position.”Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, however, was at a loss to explain his team’s slow start“We began badly and we had a very good team in front of us,” Pochettino said. “You cannot come to a place like this and only start to play when you are two goals down.“We did have one or two chances at 2-0 but to be honest we didn’t deserve to take too much from the game . We were poor, we lacked aggression. Liverpool deserve all the credit. The truth is they played much better than we did.”Spurs stayed second despite the loss, although Chelsea can go 12 points clear if they win at Burnley on Sunday. “That gap is already huge, it will be difficult for anyone to catch Chelsea,” Pochettino said. “Liverpool are only a point behind us and now they have a fortnight off to prepare for their next game. We must play in the Europa League and the FA Cup before we get back to the league.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp applauds the crowd in a past match.LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Feb 12- Jurgen Klopp refused to get carried away after watching his side beat Tottenham 2-0 on Saturday, saying the Premier League title was still a distant dream.“We finally started 2017 tonight but we should not go nuts immediately,” the Liverpool manager said.last_img read more

Water shortage ominous

first_imgSouthern California water officials are drawing up plans that could force rationing in some cities as early as next year, officials said Wednesday. For now, residents are being asked to voluntarily use less water, but the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California warned that mandatory rationing could become necessary for the first time since 1991. The immediate trigger for concern arose from U.S. District Judge Oliver Wanger’s ruling last week that to protect the delta smelt, a small fish threatened with extinction, water imports from Northern California must be cut by up to 30 percent. Officials said the threat of earthquakes and flooding, saltwater intrusion and aging levees in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta compound the problem. “We have further evidence that the delta is in crisis, if there was any doubt about it,” said Lester Snow, director of the state Department of Water Resources. Officials said Wednesday that they are still trying to sift through Wanger’s ruling to determine how much water they will be able to move through the delta and into Southern California. Wanger did not specify how much less water could be pumped from the delta. Instead, he focused on protecting the smelt by slowing the water that flows into the pumps. Tim Quinn, president of the Association of California Water Agencies, said that in a dry year there could be a 25 percent reduction in the amount of water pumped from the delta. The MWD is preparing an allocation plan that would spell out how much water it might be able to provide the 26 cities and water agencies that it serves in six counties, including Los Angeles and Ventura counties, said Roger Patterson, the district’s assistant general manager. If the district tells its members it has less water to provide them, it would be up to them to decide how to ask residents to cut back. “The question is how soon do we need to go into that kind of decision-making. Do we have to do that in 2008, or do we rely on our reserve account – or (banked water) savings – to not do that in 2008? Those are the policy decisions that will be made.” The district imports about 50 percent of the water used by member agencies. About two-thirds of the water comes from the delta and the rest from the Colorado River. The amount of water the district stands to lose from the court decision amounts to more than 10 percent of all the water its members use in a typical year. In the city of Los Angeles, which relies on the district for nearly 70 percent of its water, officials already are asking residents to use 10 percent less water this year. But it’s a voluntary program. “If we have rationing in Los Angeles, it won’t be the first time that that has happened,” said David Nahai, president of the board of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Commissioners. “If that is what will be needed in order to safeguard our water supplies, well, so be it. But we’ll have to see just what this plan is that Metropolitan Water District will be putting forward.” The MWD plans to present its allocation plan to the board in the fall. But Patterson said officials will hope for plenty of rainfall this winter and voluntary conservation before they seek mandatory cuts. alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Why Pep Guardiola wants ‘one of the top midfielders in Europe’ for Man City

first_img1 Ilkay Gundogan is linked with a move to the Premier League Football stats analysts WhoScored.com analyse a rumoured Manchester City target…When Manchester City announced that Pep Guardiola would succeed Manuel Pellegrini as manager in the summer, the gossip columns wildly speculated who the Spaniard would look to bring to the Etihad Stadium. Reports suggested Guardiola had a bottomless transfer war chest with which to strengthen the playing squad and while that may still be a possibility, he’s unlikely to spend every penny in the kitty in one summer.The defence is supposedly one of the key areas Guardiola wants to strengthen, but it’s in the middle of the park where the first signing has supposedly been made. Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan has been strongly linked with a move to City in recent weeks and recent reports suggest a deal is close to completion. A WhoScored.com rating of 7.43 is among the best in the Bundesliga this season and it’s no shock that City top a lengthy list of potential suitors for the 25-year-old.Indeed, the Manchester club are believed to have won the race to secure his services, with Guardiola keen on bringing the Germany international to England as a replacement for Yaya Toure. The powerhouse Ivorian is expected to depart City this summer, with Guardiola touted to cash in on the midfielder for the second time in his short managerial career having sold the 32-year-old to the Citizens back in 2010 while Barcelona manager.Gundogan has clearly been earmarked as his replacement for City, with the 25-year-old providing a similar thrust and driving force from deep to help link the defence and attack. Indeed, only two players have a better success rate than Gundogan (68.4%) of those to attempt 50 or more dribbles in the Bundesliga this season, reinforcing his statistically calculated WhoScored.com strength of ‘dribbling’.Given teams often deploy a 4-2-3-1 formation in England’s top tier, the need for a deep-lying runner from midfield alongside a ball winner is essential and Gundogan has proven how capable a performer he is when he gains a head of steam, charging forward with the ball to help open up the opposition. However, he is not one to unnecessarily bring the ball upfield, with Gundogan knowledgeable enough to know when to pass on possession when it’s needed.Only three players are playing more passes per Bundesliga game than Gundogan (80.9) this season, with the midfielder amassing a commendable success rate of 87.8%. With the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva expected to be operating ahead of him for City, his impressive ball retaining quality will help the team break forward and for Gundogan to supply the ammunition for the club’s impressive array of attacking talent to maximise.Meanwhile, only Arsenal (56.3%) are averaging more possession than City (55.4%) in the Premier League this season and it’s widely expected that Guardiola will implement a similar possession-based game when he takes over the Etihad Stadium reins this summer. Gundogan’s ability to pick out a teammate with consummate ease will help City maintain pressure on the opposition, all the while ensuring opponents can’t forge goalscoring opportunities.After over a year sidelined with a back problem, Gundogan made an impressive return to full fitness for Dortmund and has once again established himself as one of the top midfielders in Europe. If – as expected – City secure Gundogan’s services in the summer transfer window, they’ll have landed themselves the ideal replacement for Toure, whose days are supposedly numbered at the Etihad Stadium.For more stats on Ilkay Gundogan, click here to view his WhoScored.com player pagelast_img read more

Juror in murder case speaks

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonCaballero will return to Norwalk Superior Court on Jan. 11 for sentencing and a decision on whether he will be re-tried. “We could not convict him because we were unable to ask Albert Martinez any questions,” said Vernardine Martinez, 61, of Whittier, who was juror No. 6 and is no relation to the witness. “He was mysteriously unavailable,” she said. The testimony of Albert Martinez from the preliminary hearing was read into evidence when district attorney’s officials were unable to locate him for trial. He had testified he had seen Caballero three times in Garcia’s home on the day of the slaying. “It was Albert who was the pivotal witness,” Vernardine Martinez said. “With his testimony we would probably have been able to convict.” His DNA was found on Garcia’s tennis shoe, leading jurors to question who killed her, Martinez said. “We don’t know which one did it,” she said. Sheriff’s deputies did not arrest Albert Martinez and the district attorney has not filed charges against him. He is not considered a suspect in the case, officials said. Vernardine Martinez also questioned why no fingerprints were found in the home in the 15000 block of Stanbroook Drive in La Mirada. “We found it amazing there were no footprints, no fingerprints, not even from the people who live there,” she said. “With the amount of blood, I couldn’t believe they couldn’t find one fingerprint or DNA evidence,” she said. Dominguez said no prints were found. “It’s a myth that you can get prints off of everything,” she said. Vernardine Martinez also said there was no contradiction in the jury’s verdicts. The jury found Caballero guilty of elder abuse and burglary while 11 voted to acquit him of murder and robbery. “We convicted him of elder abuse because the minute he said, `Let’s go to my aunt’s house’ they put her in jeopardy of her life, not because of whatever happened. “He said, `Let’s go there with these crazy meth heads,”‘ she said. She was referring to Eugene Silos’ testimony that Caballero suggested that Albert Martinez drive them in his Chevrolet Astro van to Garcia’s home. Vernardine Martinez said the jury convicted Caballero of burglary because of Silos’ testimony that he had gone into the Garcia home, but they couldn’t convict him of robbery because of the same concerns the jury had over the murder charge. The jury also convicted Caballero of grand theft of a firearm because witnesses testified that they saw him with the guns, she said.

You’re all set! NORWALK – The absence of a key witness and fingerprint evidence apparently caused most members of a jury to vote to acquit a 23-year-old La Mirada man on the charge of murdering his 86-year-old great-aunt, a juror has told the Whittier Daily News. The jury in early December deadlocked 11-1 in favor of acquitting Eric Steve Caballero, who was accused of the March 4, 2005, murder of Adeline Garcia of La Mirada. Caballero was convicted of burglary, elder abuse leading to death and the grand theft of a firearm, but was acquitted of charges of robbery and the grand theft of an automobile. Garcia was beaten with a toilet paper holder, a bench, a bar stool, a broomstick and a hammer, Deputy District Attorney Shelley Dominguez said during final arguments. last_img

Heat wave didn’t help chill crime

first_img“Officers weren’t (just) sitting in their cars with the air conditioning on,” Moore said. “But we still have challenges. Persistence is helping us in identifying these criminals, but we just need to continue to do that on a broader scale.” This week, police could get some help thanks to the burners suddenly cooling. Insufferably hot commutes have turned to cool misty drives under a dank marine layer that has hugged the hills each morning. The Valley forecast this week is for low clouds and fog in the morning with cooler-than-normal highs in the 70s to mid-80s. “We’re finally getting our beloved June gloom – Southern California’s natural air conditioner – the first week of August,” said Bill Patzert, a climatologist and research oceanographer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Ca¤ada Flintridge. “And I’m lovin’ it. “(But) my advice to Angelenos: Enjoy it now, because we’ve still got the Santa Anas of August and September to look forward to.” susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Last month’s record-breaking heat wave finally fizzled, but criminal activity sizzled in the San Fernando Valley during that time, contributing to an increase in violent crime, officials said Monday. “Would (criminals) just head for cover and stand down? Unfortunately, even with the impact of the heat, we saw an increase in violent crime,” said LAPD Deputy Chief Michel Moore, the Valley’s commanding officer. The month of July was one of the hottest months on record, and almost as humid, weather forecasters said. From July 6 to July 26, the Valley sustained 100-plus-degree temperatures, including an all-time Los Angeles County record of 119 in Woodland Hills. At the same time, humidity ranged from 40 percent to 70 percent, with unseasonal tropical moisture drawn from the Gulf of Mexico.

The LAPD’s Valley bureaus reported 174 instances of violent crimes for the week ending July 22 compared with 130 the week before. Violent crime includes homicides, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults. Street robberies, which increased by 9 percent citywide from June 24 to July 22, dropped in the Valley, but contributed to the bulk of overall violent crimes. There were 52 street robberies the week ending July 22, compared with 87 the week before. But some divisions saw success, Moore said.
