Jürgen Klopp eases Liverpool’s pressing game in the search for solidity

Monday 16:24 GMT

That restricted United’s capacity to break, something about which Klopp was clearly delighted: he kept stressing after the game how United are “one of the best counterattacking sides in the world”, yet they threatened only once, on the one occasion when Henrikh Mkhitaryan had an impact, opening up the game for Romelu Lukaku’s one-two with Anthony Martial that led to United’s only shot on target.

Whether Klopp was right, given Mourinho’s set-up, to remain so cautious is a matter of interpretation – as is the issue of whether Mourinho was right to sit so deep, given Liverpool’s recent form – but it was further evidence of a general shift in Liverpool’s play this season.

Brighton & Hove Albion 1-1 Everton

Monday 14:34 GMT

Wayne Rooney's 90th-minute penalty earned Everton a point against Brighton, but manager Ronald Koeman remains under pressure after his Toffees struggled again.

Brighton looked set to secure their third successive home league win when Anthony Knockaert slotted home in the 82nd minute after Jose Izquierdo's shot was blocked by Michael Keane. But with the clock ticking down, defender Bruno, whose good work led to the Seagulls' goal, elbowed Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the area as a free-kick was floated in.

What we learned from the Lakers' preseason: The team is a work in progress

Monday 15:29 GMT

If Caruso remains on a two-way contract now, he can’t be with the Lakers for more than 45 days during the season, and if the Lakers want him longer, they’ll have to make room for him somehow.

While the Lakers did add Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who is a very strong on-ball defender, one person alone can’t turn around what’s become a cultural problem for the Lakers.

The decline of Holland: how Dutch are doomed by total obsession with past

Monday 13:37 GMT

The 24-year-old, who played for Dutch youth teams up to the under-21s and was the outstanding Dutch midfielder of his generation, was injured on his first call-up in May 2015 and could not play, but then seemed to be overlooked.

Spain have recovered while the Dutch have regressed because that is where the insidiousness of nostalgia can lead – to regression, in the assumption that to achieve glory in the future we need to “go back” and recreate a past that has long been lost.

Russell Westbrook, Nick Collison go White Men Can’t Jump for Halloween

Monday 13:37 GMT

Westbrook and Thunder teammate Nick Collison dressed up as  Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) and Billy Hoyle (Woody Harelson) from “White Men Can’t Jump” and they were in the zone.

This gets into the central question about the Thunder, the one that will define just how good they are this season — are Westbrook, George, and Anthony really willing to make the sacrifices to their games needed to push for a title?

UCLA gets run over by Khalil Tate and Arizona 47-30

Monday 08:06 GMT

Arizona had been the salve for everything that troubled UCLA during Bruins coach Jim Mora’s first five seasons in Westwood.

McKinley kept his thoughts to himself after the Bruins missed three tackles on the same play in the third quarter, Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate slipping through the defense for a 71-yard touchdown run. It was certainly hard to tell that UCLA (3-3 overall, 1-2 Pac-12 Conference) had made tackling and containing the quarterback a focus in practices during its bye week.

Ray Rice: I Was Trying to Be 'the Man,' Not 'a Man'

Monday 08:06 GMT

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice defines “champion” differently two years after video was released of what he calls “the worst decision of my life." “Winning is big,” he said.

“It was the worst decision of my life, and I'm going to pay that consequence for the rest of my life,” Rice told News4 for the domestic violence awareness project "Safe at Home." “I have two kids, who I now have to raise my son to grow up to be a man but I also have to protect my daughter from myself, a guy that could potentially be like me in my worst moments.”

Backlash grows after NFL star shown pulling down woman's shirt

Monday 08:06 GMT

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is facing backlash after video posted online Monday purportedly shows the star player pulling down a woman's top and exposing one of her breasts at a St. Patrick's Day parade.

While the Cowboys and the NFL have not addressed Saturday's incident in Dallas, domestic violence awareness groups are demanding a response — and quickly — in light of the league's previous pledge to act forcefully in cases of sexual or physical abuse.

The Long, Winding Road of Deflategate: A Timeline

Monday 08:06 GMT

It has been 15 months since the New England Patriots were accused of deflating footballs in the AFC Championship game win that sent them to Super Bowl XLIX in 2015, and the scandal known as "Deflategate" still is not settled.

Jan. 18, 2015: The New England Patriots, led by star quarterback Tom Brady, beat the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship, 45-7, in the rain. After the game, the Colts complain that some of the game balls were underinflated, which would make them easier to catch and throw, particularly during bad weather.

Study Finds Evidence of Brain Injury in Living NFL Veterans

Monday 08:06 GMT

More than 40 percent of retired NFL players tested with advanced scanning technology showed signs of traumatic brain injury, a much higher rate than in the general population, according to a new study of the long-term risks of playing American football.

The research, to be presented at an American Academy of Neurology meeting in Vancouver later this week, is one of the first to provide "objective evidence" of traumatic brain injury in a large sample of National Football League veterans while they are living, said Dr. Francis Conidi, one of the study's authors. Conidi, a neurologist at the Florida Center for Headache and Sports Neurology and a faculty member at the Florida State University College of Medicine, said traumatic brain injury was often a "precursor" to CTE, a degenerative brain disease.

Tom Terrific Brady Goes Free, But Reputation Sacked

Monday 08:06 GMT

Among the reasons, he said, are the relative triviality of the alleged offense — “If Tom Brady had gone out and held up a bank, that’s one thing” — and the reserved, professional way Brady conducts himself in public.

The new poll was taken Aug. 28-30 — before a federal judge invalidated Commissioner Roger Goodell’s four-game suspension of Brady, finding “significant legal deficiencies” with the punishment.

Maddon 'couldn't disagree more' with overturned call at home

Monday 05:10 GMT

Maddon was tossed for arguing an overturned call at home plate in the Chicago Cubs' 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers during the NL Championship Series opener, then let loose on baseball's rule governing potential collisions with catchers.

Maddon said the home plate collision rule "gets interpreted kind of like tantamount to the soda tax in Chicago, for me."
