Rooney sees red but United cling on

first_img Rooney became the third-highest scorer in Premier League history when he opened the scoring for United with a deft volley and Robin van Persie doubled the lead with his 50th goal for the club. Rooney then put his team’s chances in jeopardy by kicking out at Stewart Downing, but despite Diafra Sakho’s header making it awkward, Louis van Gaal’s side held on for a 2-1 win. The expert execution of the volley across the West Ham goalkeeper was befitting of a striker whose Premier League scoring record is only bettered by Andy Cole and Alan Shearer. United’s creaky defence almost cost them the lead within one minute of Rooney’s goal. Daley Blind’s miscued clearance landed straight into the stride of Enner Valencia, but he blasted into the Stretford End. It was a let-off for the hosts, who quickly sought to settle the nervy home crowd with a second goal. Rooney found Van Persie at the back post with a delightful cross, but the Dutchman headed wide. Angel di Maria shot high and wide from inside the West Ham box and Rooney then fluffed a shot inside the area. Van Persie had no such trouble in the 23rd minute when he put United 2-0 up. Adrian put Alex Song under pressure with a poor clearance and United took full advantage. Ander Herrera nicked the ball off the Barcelona loanee and Van Persie angled his shot past the West Ham goalkeeper after a clever pass from Falcao. For all their attacking brilliance, at the back United still looked suspect. Song slipped Sakho in behind, but Marcos Rojo raced across to put in a vital tackle. Sakho found the net a few minutes later though, due to a rare error from David de Gea. Song hit the bar with a header after the Spaniard flapped at a corner and the ball fell to Sakho, who headed into an empty net. Sakho put McNair under pressure as United desperately tried to hold on to their lead before the break. After the break, West Ham continued to press. Aside from a shot by Falcao, United offered little on the attack. Slack marking from debutant Luke Shaw allowed Sakho to sting De Gea’s palms with a fierce volley. United looked shaky in the face of West Ham’s attacking play, and their task was made much harder when Rooney was sent off just before the hour. The United captain, unable to catch Downing, kicked the midfielder from behind while he was at full pace. Referee Lee Mason blew his whistle and then, to the shock of the home fans and players, showed Rooney his first red card for United in five-and-a-half years. Van Gaal looked to shore up his team by bringing Darren Fletcher on for Falcao. West Ham sent Carlton Cole on and looked to press home their numerical advantage. Sakho rippled the side-netting and Valencia’s deflected shot flew inches wide as West Ham piled on pressure. Herrera hobbled off with a back injury before McNair made a goal-saving header deep inside the home box. Kevin Nolan turned in Carl Jenkinson’s cross in the 89th minute, but linesman Andrew Garratt flagged for offside and United held on to record the second win of Van Gaal’s tenure. Wayne Rooney’s reckless dismissal did not stop Manchester United from returning to winning ways as they edged past West Ham on a nervy afternoon at Old Trafford. Just like in last week’s shock defeat to Leicester, United looked very impressive at times going forward. The attacking trio of Rooney, Van Persie and Radamel Falcao combined well up front, until the United captain was sent off in the 59th minute for the foul, which occurred deep inside his own half. At the back, United looked vulnerable once again, although in fairness to Van Gaal, his injury troubles were so bad that he had to give 19-year-old centre-back Paddy McNair a debut. Of more concern to Van Gaal will be Rooney’s absence, which will last three matches if the dismissal is deemed to be violent conduct by the Football Association. That would rule the United skipper out of the forthcoming games against Everton, West Brom and Chelsea – three games United will want to win to put themselves firmly back in the hunt for the Champions League places. The desire to put last week’s capitulation to bed was clear from the first whistle. United hit West Ham with attack after attack, and it took less than five minutes for the hosts to break the deadlock. Rafael sprinted down the right flank after dinking the ball over Aaron Cresswell. The Brazilian paused and crossed for Rooney, who volleyed past Adrian after one bounce. Press Associationlast_img read more

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — At their best, the Lakers are good enough to put the NBA’s top team on the ropes.Just not for 48 minutes.There were moments of high drama between the Lakers (30-32) and the Bucks (48-14) on Friday night at Staples Center, as the home team clawed for playoff positioning against the No. 1 team in the East. But despite 31 points from Brandon Ingram and 31 from LeBron James, the Lakers simply wore down in a 131-120 loss – after frittering away opportunities in the fourth quarter, a heavy minutes rotation took its toll on the starters.In a game that was tied six times over the final seven minutes, the Lakers were up 118-116 with 3:11 remaining, when Rajon Rondo bounced a pass just ahead of James for a turnover. From there, the Bucks went on a game-ending 15-2 run, punctuated by 3-pointers by Malcolm Brogdon (21 points) and Eric Bledsoe (31 points, nine rebounds, five assists). Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Rondo played 40 minutes, while James and Ingram each played 39. No Bucks player logged more than 32 minutes, and Giannis Antetokounmpo had 16 points and 15 rebounds as he continued to display his MVP candidacy.While the Lakers were able to limit him to 7 for 14 from the field, they were less happy about how they contained his supporting cast: Seven Bucks finished in double figures, and a tightened Lakers bench rotation was again outscored (34-21).When they ran back on offense, the Lakers had to counter a Milwaukee press late in the game. The Lakers had two more turnovers, one on a James offensive foul, then another as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope threw an awkward inbounds pass to Ersan Ilyasova – the Bucks scored off of both.On the ill-fated inbounds pass that gave Milwaukee a six-point lead, Lakers coach Luke Walton claimed responsibility.“I wanted to get something with LeBron coming downhill,” he said. “We took for granted to get the ball inbounds.”Ingram took a frustrated shot as time expired, and the Lakers lost for the 11th time in their last 16 games. With only 20 games left, they still trail the eighth-place San Antonio Spurs by 3½ games in the Western Conference standings.No player had a more robust start than Ingram, who hit his first nine shots. His evening wasn’t just efficient: Two of the most vibrant plays of his career came against the Bucks, as he twirled past Nikola Mirotic for a reverse jam in the first half, then slammed over a helpless Brook Lopez in the second.But it was hard for the Lakers to stay afloat without James or Ingram on the floor. The duo played the whole of the third quarter, as Antetokounmpo sat for the last five minutes of the period. In the fourth quarter, as the Greek Freak and Bledsoe started bullying their way to the rim, the fatigue began to show for L.A.Walton acknowledged that big minutes for starters will be the case more often, at least as long as Lonzo Ball remains injured (which is expected to be at least three more games).“We’re gonna shorten down the rotation a little bit, but we’re going to give guys chances out there to see if someone’s having a night,” he said. “That’s going to change from game-to-game.”At one point, the Lakers looked to be in control, leading by 12 points midway through the third quarter. But Bledsoe, with a freshly inked contract extension, took control and helped the Bucks battle their way back to a one-point lead.Even those who had less satisfactory beginnings found moments to shine. The Staples Center crowd groaned in the first quarter as Rondo missed his first five 3-point attempts. But he went on to nail some others, including back-to-back lead-taking shots in the first half, and another game-tying shot in the second.Related Articleslast_img read more
