Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin (right) described a Merseyside derby without fans as “bizarre”London, United Kingdom | AFP | THE INDEPENDENT | Liverpool’s march towards the Premier League title was delayed as the leaders returned to action with a goalless draw against Merseyside rivals Everton, while Chelsea fought back for a 2-1 win at Aston Villa on Sunday.Jurgen Klopp’s side picked up following the top-flight resumption on Wednesday needing two wins to secure their first English title for 30 years.But Liverpool looked rusty in their first game in 106 days following the coronavirus lockdown.Despite their underwhelming display behind closed doors at Goodison Park, Liverpool are now 23 points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.If City drop points at home to Burnley on Monday, then Liverpool can clinch the title against Crystal Palace at Anfield on Wednesday.A City victory would delay Liverpool’s coronation until at least their clash with Pep Guardiola’s side at the Etihad Stadium on July 2.Liverpool have won just two of their last seven games in all competitions.“It was a real fight. Both teams showed they understood it was a derby,” Klopp said.“Most of the time we were dominant but they had the biggest chance. We were not smart enough to use the space.“That is normal when you start to play again. Football looks slightly different (since the coronavirus) but I take that.”Reds star Mohamed Salah was left on the bench due to fitness concerns, while Andrew Robertson was also sidelined and they were not at their best as a result.Liverpool improved after the break and Naby Keita fired just wide before Virgil van Dijk’s header was saved by Jordan Pickford.But it was Everton who came closest to a winner on the break when Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s effort was saved by Alisson Becker and Tom Davies fired the rebound against the post.Frank Lampard believes Christian Pulisic can be Chelsea’s trump card in the race to qualify for the Champions League after his decisive cameo at Villa Park.Lampard’s side were rocked when Kortney Hause put Villa ahead against the run of play in the first half. But Pulisic came off the bench to equalise after the break before Olivier Giroud bagged his fourth club goal of the season two minutes later.Chelsea’s quick-fire blitz moved the fourth-placed west Londoners five points clear of Manchester United in fifth as they fight to qualify for next season’s Champions League.– Welcome boost –A first away league win of 2020 was the ideal way for Chelsea to return to action in their first match since the Premier League was suspended in March due to the coronavirus.It was Pulisic’s first appearance since January after an abductor muscle injury and Lampard feels the United States winger is ready to make an impact again.“He will start games for us, of course, and I think he’s going to be a big player for us, not just in this run-in but going forward,” Lampard said.“The ability he’s got to arrive in the box, it’s a big thing, I’ve spoken about it with him all season.”Steve Bruce hopes Joelinton is finally ready to deliver after the Brazilian ended a Premier League goal drought stretching back to August in Newcastle’s 3-0 win over 10-man Sheffield United.Joelinton’s close-range finish in the 78th minute completed the scoring after goals from Allan Saint-Maximin and Matt Ritchie.It was a welcome boost for Joelinton, who has struggled since his move from Hoffenheim last year and missed a glorious opportunity in the first half at St James’ Park.Joelinton was also at the centre of the game’s significant moment when he raced away from John Egan in the second half and was hauled back, triggering a red card for the Blades defender that sparked the visitors’ collapse.“He personally has suffered in the lockdown more than anybody. He’s had no family here, no friends, holed up in an apartment somewhere,” Bruce said.“He’s a really genuinely good lad and he gives his all for the team. We’re just delighted that he’s managed to score a goal. He can only get better.”Share on: WhatsApp

Building activity subdued The slowdown in house price growth runs parallel with the weakening SA economy. GDP growth slowed to 1.3% in the second quarter of 2011, down from 4.5% in the first quarter. The report said that building activity remained subdued, with house price growth likely to follow suit. The value of residential buildings completed (in real terms) for the period January to July 2011 fell by 7.4%, from the corresponding period in 2010. Residential contractors, as surveyed by the Bureau of Economic Research, suffered a fall in business confidence, to 20 index points in quarter three, from 24 index points in the second quarter. Household disposable income Standard Bank’s median house price posted a growth rate of 0.6% in September as compared to the same period last year, down from 1.6% in August. Growth in real terms remains negative. House price growth slowed to a crawl in September according to a report by Standard Bank. This slowdown was mirrored by real household consumption expenditure growth decelerating to 3.8% in the second quarter, down from a robust 5.2% in the first quarter. Growth in total credit extension to households eased to 5.2% in August, from 6.6% in July. Growth in mortgage advances mirrored this decline, registering 1.6% in August, from 3% in July.

About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Danilo D’Ambrosio pleased to prove Inter Milan matchwinnerby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveDanilo D’Ambrosio was pleased to prove Inter Milan’s matchwinner against Lazio last night.His header separated the two teams on the night.D’Ambrosio later remarked: “What counts are the three points, this is always the case. I missed from close range against Milan but luckily my mistake didn’t matter in the end.“In the first half, we didn’t produce what the Coach had asked from us, but then we played in a more relaxed manner and deserved the win. We could have scored a second after the restart to put the result beyond doubt, but in the end we got the three points. This is the most important thing.“I feel comfortable in any kind of role, playing as part of a five or three doesn’t make any difference for me. When you have a coach like Conte, there are memorised playing patterns and you need to give 100% in every match, irrespective of the position you play in. Lazio are an experienced side and have quality in all positions. If we’d lost or drawn today, the Derby result would have meant nothing.”
Clemson Football Coach Dabo Swinney Also Believes Notre Dame Should Be In A Conference To Be Playoff Eligible
Dabo Swinney WhipAs we make it through college football media days and the various ESPN “car washes” that follow, Notre Dame’s independent status has become a hot topic of conversation once again. Last week, Missouri’s Gary Pinkel argued that the Fighting Irish should be forced into joining a league within a year. Clemson’s Dabo Swinney agrees: either Notre Dame should join a league with a conference championship, or adopt a 13 game schedule.Dabo Swinney agrees w/Gary Pinkel: “Absolutely Notre Dame needs to be in conference or play 13 games to be in @CFBPlayoff“— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) July 27, 2015Swinney’s not the only high-profile ACC coach to think this.Paul Johnson: “Notre Dame should be in the ACC. It’s another brand program to strengthen the conference.”— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) July 27, 2015The ACC obviously has a lot to gain from Notre Dame, if it ever committed fully to joining a conference. With the current scheduling arrangement between the Fighting Irish and the league, the ACC is currently the most logical landing spot for Notre Dame football. Adding Notre Dame would be a big boost to the ACC football brand, which lags behind the other power conferences when it comes to perceived strength.

The setting must have looked familiar to Justin Trudeau as he returned to a gleaming state guesthouse in Beijing for talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, his second visit in 15 months.This time, however, the prime minister found himself sitting across from a far more dominant ruler of the Asian superpower.Xi’s progression since his last meeting with Trudeau has meaningful implications for Canada, experts argue — particularly as Ottawa navigates the risks of closer ties with Xi’s increasingly assertive China.In recent months, the ambitious Xi has significantly tightened his grip on the leadership to become China’s most powerful figure in decades.Xi solidified his position during the ruling Communist Party’s congress in October when his name and policies were formally enshrined into the party’s constitution. The change has elevated him to a status shared only by China’s core Communist leaders, Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin.Ahead of the congress, The Economist magazine had already dubbed Xi “the world’s most powerful man.”Enter Trudeau, who met with Xi in China for the first time since September 2016. Since then, their governments have been engaged in exploratory talks on a free-trade agreement.On the one hand, Canada sees vast opportunity in forging a deeper business relationship with China, the world’s second-largest economy.On the flip side, Trudeau is constantly under pressure to transmit Canadian concerns to Chinese leaders over the country’s record on human rights and its rule of law. Before Tuesday’s meeting, Trudeau insisted he wouldn’t hesitate to raise Canada’s unease about China directly with Xi.This time, however, experts believe Trudeau’s words have likely had a tougher time getting through.“I do think that Mr. Trudeau is probably meeting a different Xi — a Xi who is much more confident and who is much more dismissive of accommodating the concerns of the West,” said Charles Burton, a political science professor at Brock University and a former Canadian diplomat.Indeed, Burton said he believes Trudeau’s visit this week has already shown signs of China’s self-assured shift.Earlier this week, the two sides announced they were not ready to move beyond the current phase of exploratory trade talks — despite China’s growing impatience to launch formal negotiations with Canada.Trudeau has been pushing for a progressive trade deal with China that would address issues such as gender equality, the environment and labour rights.It’s not yet clear just how unwelcome Canada’s proposed progressive chapters were in Beijing, but experts called it unlikely Xi’s group would consider entertaining them.Hongying Wang, a political science professor from University of Waterloo, said Xi has already left his mark on China’s governance structure, leading it away from the collective approach of the country’s past towards a more autocratic, top-down style.“It’s a matter of principle, I think, for the Canadian government to state its position — I guess the challenge is how do you state your position without completely cutting off any hopes of a good trade relationship? It’s a very hard balance,” Wang said.“I really don’t think he’s someone anyone can press into something he doesn’t want to do.”Diana Fu, an expert in Asian politics from the University of Toronto, said Xi’s emergence means Trudeau will have to continue approaching the Chinese president “carefully and tactfully” because he’s shown he won’t bow to foreign powers.“Any negotiations with the Xi administration will have to consider how to deal with not a rising China, but a risen one — this makes it more difficult than perhaps any other … talks previously,” Fu wrote in an email.“How do you convince the Canadian public that potential economic benefits of free trade offsets concern over diametrically opposing values?”Canada, however, continues to be of interest to Xi’s China.While the two countries have yet to become major trading partners, Canada offers many possibilities, particularly when it comes to agriculture, clean technology and education.“I think Canada is a very desirable partner and certainly a very important ally of the U.S. that China would like to win some support from, because China has always seen the U.S. as this potential rival,” Wang said.“Maybe China doesn’t see Canada as very important yet, (but) the potential is definitely there.”Canada is clearly trying to woo China as well: John McCallum, Canada’s ambassador to China, said he met Xi within 24 hours of presenting his credentials earlier this year.Expecting to meet a “scary” leader, McCallum instead came away with a much different impression, saying he was “taken aback in a positive way” by Xi.Make no mistake, however: on the world stage, Xi is overseeing an expanding Chinese presence, hoping to step into the global void created by a retreating United States under Donald Trump.Xi has also pushed a more aggressive military presence in the South China Sea with the construction of artificial islands over the objections from nearby neighbouring countries. He’s built up China’s navy and has opened the country’s first foreign military base in Djibouti.His most ambitious project is the massive “One Belt, One Road” initiative that will involve spending hundreds of billions of dollars for infrastructure along a corridor spanning more than 60 countries. The injection of Chinese capital along the route will allow China to buy influence in those countries, numerous analysts have said.
