We have to be consistent in the way we play, and after that the results are going to come.”Luiz praised Eden Hazard, who has been playing as a false nine recently. “He’s a fantastic player, an intelligent player,” he said. “He is playing a different position but intelligent players can play anywhere. He is doing well and he deserves it.”

Sophomore guard Walter Offutt is leaving the Ohio State men’s basketball team to transfer to another university, coach Thad Matta announced Tuesday.Offutt will finish fall quarter at OSU before determining where he will relocate.The Indianapolis native has appeared in 23 career games for the Buckeyes, averaging 1.3 points per game.
The Ohio State-Michigan football game is more than a week away, but the bitter rivalry between both schools will be in action this weekend on the ice. The No. 14 OSU men’s hockey team (8-3-1, 5-2-1) will face No. 7 Michigan (7-3-2, 3-3-2), in a two-game series starting Friday night in Ann Arbor, Mich. The Buckeyes, ranked for the first time this season, are currently on a five-game winning streak and unbeaten in their last seven games. OSU head coach Mark Osiecki is looking forward to the test facing Michigan on the road will pose for his team. “We know what to expect playing against Michigan,” he said. “We expect a well-coached team, and a team that plays at a high level and competes.” Playing at Michigan is always fun for senior forward Danny Dries, a Michigan native. “Being from around there, it’s always fun to have family and friends around and play in front of them,” he said. “It’s a pretty fun environment. Youcan’t let it intimidate you.” Senior goalie Cal Heeter said that playing Michigan is special because of the historic rivalry between the two schools, but that the real importance of the games are the conference points that could be gained. “We have to realize and respect the rivalry for both schools. On top of that, the CCHA points are important for this team,” he said. OSU is currently tied for second in the CCHA with 17 points. Michigan has 12 points and stands alone in sixth place. Osiecki attributes the recent success to players gelling and coming together as one. “Whether they’ve had a lot of playing time or a little, they’ve done well,” he said. One of the things OSU has done well is play disciplined. OSU has had a season-low four penalties in each of their past four games. When the Buckeyes have had to play a man down during the five-game winning streak, they’ve been perfect, killing all 19 of their opponents’ power plays. “We have done some things in practice to make our guys move their feet and keep their sticks down,” Osiecki said. “I think that has been a big factor in us being smart and knowing we can play hard and stay out of the penalty box.” The Buckeyes have been no slouch on the offensive end either, outscoring their opponents, 27-6, during the seven-game unbeaten streak. OSU leads the CCHA with 3.38 goals per game in conference play. Heeter said he enjoys having a potent offense play in front of him, but that it can be tough to get into the flow of the game when he doesn’t have to make a ton of saves. “It’s different, it’s tough for sure,” he said. “It’s just a different element, something you have to get used to.” Michigan is second in the CCHA with 3.25 goals per game, and posted a season-high 10 goals in a game against St. Lawrence in October. OSU and Michigan are set to take the ice at 7:35 p.m. Friday and play again Saturday night.
Everton forward Theo Walcott believes that there is never a good time to face Manchester United, regardless of their current strugglesThe Red Devils head into Sunday’s fixture at Old Trafford in 10th-place in the Premier League with just four wins from nine games.Their troubles only deepened on Tuesday, where they suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Juventus in the Champions League with manager Jose Mourinho admitting afterwards they were outclassed by the Italians.On the other hand, Everton have won their last three league games and sit in eighth place in the standings and a point ahead of United.But Walcott knows better than to take the 20-time English champions lightly.“I don’t think it’s the best time playing Man United at any time, I really don’t,” Walcott told ESPN.“But we are in good spirits, we are in good form, we’re enjoying ourselves.“It’s obviously well documented [United’s struggles] but the players they have, it’s not going to be an easy game.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“But we know our strengths, we know what to do to obviously keep the fans quiet, that’s the most important thing.“We need to focus on ourselves really, not them. We need to do the stuff that the manager drills into us every day in training and if we do that and if everyone works to the ability we know we can, we have a very good chance.”The former Arsenal player is wary of a response from United, after their defeat to Juventus, this weekend.“If you think that a team is not playing with confidence that’s probably when they are at their best,” added Walcott.“You may be going into the game a bit more relaxed and you don’t need that, not in these sorts of games.“Everyone needs to be fully focused because Man United is a massive game and this will see where we are at with them as well.”Walcott has contributed towards four goals in nine Premier League starts for Everton this season.
