FA Cup: Chelsea Beat Spurs in Thriller to Reach Final

first_imgSpurs seemed to have the momentum after Dele Alli converted Christian Eriksen’s brilliant pass seven minutes after half-time – before Hazard was introduced as Chelsea’s trump card, along with Costa, on the hour.Hazard drove powerfully past Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris after 75 minutes and Nemanja Matic set up an appearance alongside Arsenal or Manchester City in the FA Cup final with a spectacular drive five minutes later.Conte raised eyebrows with a team selection that saw Belgian outcast Michy Batshuayi given a rare outing on this huge occasion. It led to suggestions Conte was prioritising the Premier League title race with Spurs after last weekend’s jaded performance in the 2-0 defeat at Manchester United.The winner takes the spoils, though, and Conte has every right to accept the plaudits as Chelsea won a magnificent game of football to reach the FA Cup final. Conte used Hazard and Costa at a crucial juncture – on the hour, with Spurs building up a head of attacking steam and looking the more assertive side – after Alli had equalised for the second time.Hazard, a scourge of Spurs having scored the goal that effectively ended their title chances last season, was involved in what turned out to be the defining moment 15 minutes after coming on, hitting a low drive that gave Chelsea a lead they would not surrender.It was also an illustration that the strength of Chelsea’s squad runs deeper than Tottenham’s as they were able not only to bring on Hazard and Costa but also Cesc Fabregas to change the face of the game.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Eden Hazard came off the bench to make the decisive contribution as Chelsea won an FA Cup semi-final classic against Tottenham at Wembley yesterday. Hazard had been rested, along with Diego Costa, as Chelsea manager Antonio Conte shuffled his pack against a Spurs side high on confidence after closing to within four points of their London rivals in the Premier League title race. But the Belgian emerged as substitute to help settle an enthralling encounter.Willian, in for Hazard, gave Chelsea the lead with a fine free-kick after five minutes but Harry Kane levelled for Spurs with an instinctive stooping header before the Brazilian put Conte’s side back in front from the penalty spot just before the break – Son Heung-min penalised for a foul on Victor Moses.last_img read more

Purple & Bold: Kostas Antetokounmpo prepares for a Milwaukee reunion with his MVP brother

first_imgOne of his favorite high school haunts was a nearby location of Blaze Pizza – whose most famous investor is LeBron James. Kostas now calls it a “crazy” coincidence.“It was right by my high school,” he said. “So I know LeBron now, so I might ask him for a gift card or something – no, no, just kidding.”Kostas is in a strange position between the two teams who have paced their respective conferences so far. If the playoffs started today, the Lakers and Bucks might be favored to meet in the NBA Finals. He also has competing interests in the MVP race: Between the two teams, there are three likely candidates.Being up close to James and Davis is different from being around his brother. As abnormal as Giannis’ workout routine might seem, it’s normal to Kostas, who works out with all of his brothers in the offseason. Watching James and Davis work has given him an appreciation for what it takes for others to reach a higher level.It might seem tempting for teammates to hit Kostas up for Giannis intel, but he said that so far, it hasn’t been the case.“Not yet at least,” he said. “At least not really. I wouldn’t really know. I know the way (Giannis) works, but I wouldn’t even know what he does with the team.”That’s not to say they don’t talk: Kostas estimated that he talks with his brothers usually about once a day. The Antetokounmpos are famously tight-knit. Giannis sat his brothers alongside him for the post-game press conference of the All-Star Game last February, and both attended the NBA Awards in Santa Monica this summer when Giannis received his first MVP award.It might seem daunting for a younger brother of such an accomplished star to try to make his own way. But Danny Green, who has a younger brother playing at Indiana, said the league is largely indifferent to those kinds of challenges.“Everybody has brothers,” he said. “There’s four Holidays out there. There’s a lot of Plumlees, a couple Zellers. Nobody feels bad for any of the brothers that’s not as good as the other. They all made great careers for themselves.”While the odds run against the Antetokounmpo family producing a second MVP-winning brother, there are indications that Kostas could make it in the league. He’s averaging 13.1 points and 7.1 rebounds for the South Bay Lakers. His field goal percentage has improved from 52.5 percent last year to 62.1 percent this year. While his dimensions help him play defense, he said his goal is to become a stronger offensive player.Even Green, who has no ingrained sympathy for a brother trying to rise out of a towering shadow, sees the positive signs.“Kostas, I think, is still on his way,” he said. “He’s still young and learning. He has a lot of potential. I think he’s going to be big for us at some point and big for this league at some point.”Kostas hopes that’s sooner rather than later, of course, even though Giannis took some time to emerge as an All-Star-caliber threat. In every Lakers game, he hopes the score starts to slant so he can get an opportunity for NBA minutes. In Indiana, even with Anthony Davis out, the Lakers sat their two-way players – Coach Frank Vogel called them “insurance.”Maybe in time, that will change, Kostas thinks. Maybe he’ll end up earning a little more time with the Lakers. And while Western Conference and Eastern Conference teams only play each other twice per season, maybe there will be more opportunities down the road if the Lakers and Bucks make it far enough along in the postseason.For now, the Brothers Antetokounmpo aren’t making any summer plans.“That’s our plan: both being busy in June, playing against each other hopefully,” he said. “We don’t need to talk about offseason plans yet.”— Kyle GoonEditor’s note: Thanks for reading the Purple & Bold newsletter.

When you get there, not even a locker is assured.But Antetokounmpo was more than happy to make the trip for one reason in particular: At the end of this five-game road swing is Milwaukee, where his family lives and where his name carries the ring of local royalty. Kostas can’t wait to be on the same floor as his brother, Giannis, who you have probably heard of – and who definitely has two cubbies.When the Lakers take on the Bucks on Thursday night, he’ll have a lot of reasons to be racked with excitement.“Two best teams in the NBA right now going head-to-head,” Kostas said Sunday. “So like, as a fan I want to watch that game. As a player, I want to be playing in that game. It would be amazing to be on that trip.”Greece was the first home he truly loved, but Milwaukee was the second. Kostas spent three years at Dominican High School, north of the city in Whitefish Bay, as his brother was developing into a mold-breaking forward for the Bucks. The younger Antetokounmpo can claim something that Giannis can’t: He won high school state championships with the Knights in 2015 and 2016.center_img Editor’s note: This is the Wednesday, Dec. 18 edition of the Purple & Bold newsletter.

The 6-foot-10 forward sat on a folding chair in a narrow corridor between the lockers and the showers, eating chicken and broccoli while watching game film on an iPad. A few feet above his head, his nametag was pasted on the wall to mark his tiny patch of unremarkable territory.last_img read more
