Cahill enjoying life under Mourinho

first_img Press Association One of the reasons for Mata’s omission is the new demands Mourinho is making of the World Cup-winning Spain playmaker. He wants all of his players to defend and is deploying a higher line at the back. Cahill added: “He really expects you to defend and know where to be. Not just the back four, but everybody when we lose the ball. “I don’t mind playing higher. It’s difficult to play high against people with real, real pace. “(But) I’m quite comfortable with playing high and I think the lads are.” One player who will not be in the Chelsea line-up is Marco van Ginkel. The Holland midfielder has made just two appearances following his £8million move from Vitesse Arnhem and now faces six months of rehabilitation on a knee injury. The 20-year-old underwent surgery on Thursday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. If events on the touchline provide intrigue, so too will the team sheet submitted by Mourinho, who rather disingenuously suggested Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup encounter at Swindon was a chance for fringe players to win a first-team place. Mourinho has admitted he is uncertain of his best team, but whether Juan Mata has done enough to earn a place in the starting XI at White Hart Lane remains to be seen. It is likely the Portuguese will field what he considers to be his best side against a Spurs squad he believes are one of five teams who could challenge the Blues for the Barclays Premier League title. Fernando Torres, who scored one and made another at the County Ground to set up a fourth-round tie at Arsenal, could continue at striker, ahead of Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba. Gary Cahill is likely to remain at the heart of the defence, a position he has played in seven of Chelsea’s eight matches this term; the only one he did not start was the loss at Everton. Following successive losses at Goodison Park and to Basle in the Champions League, Cahill believes Chelsea have bounced back strongly. “It was a tough week, especially when we lost back to back,” Cahill told Chelsea TV. “But we’ve responded really well. Two wins, two clean sheets. Happy days at the minute.” In a master-versus-apprentice contest, Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea take on Andre Villas-Boas’ Tottenham in Saturday’s London derby. Much of the attention will be on Mourinho and his opposite number as Villas-Boas is not only a former Chelsea manager, but also worked with his fellow Portuguese at Porto, Stamford Bridge and Inter Milan. It will be the first time the pair have encountered each other in opposing dugouts after their relationship broke down in 2009. last_img read more

(AP Photo/Craig Mitchelldyer)ExpandPORTLAND – Any streak that last 16 games takes on a bit of a supernatural feel. The Lakers misfortunes in the Moda Center weren’t simply a pattern — they were a curse.So it made sense that the breakthrough, four-and-a-half years in the making, took unlikely form.It was the Lakers reserves, not the starters, who took on the heart of the rally on the road in a 114-110 victory, combining for 51 points and nearly doubling the scoring output of the Trail Blazers bench on Saturday night, offering rare moments of quiet in front of a hostile crowd.LeBron James had a team-high 28 points and helped close the game with a pair of free throws with 10 seconds left. But just as pivotal was the steady leadership of Rajon Rondo, who had 17 points and 10 rebounds in steadying a shaky early effort. So too was the effort of Josh Hart, who made all three of his shots while finishing with 11 points and added two blocks — and narrowly avoided a critical turnover on a slide in the final minute. As the Lakers shoot to break out of one of their darkest eras this season, exorcising their demons against the Trail Blazers felt like a needed step.“It’s tough to get a win in Portland when they don’t have a good team,” coach Luke Walton said. “When they got the team that they have right now, it’s even more challenging. So, you don’t just come up here and get hot and beat Portland.” Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersSome of the less heralded efforts helped add up in the victory for the Lakers (4-5).“I think we learned from the last game as a group,” said Rondo, referencing another close call against Dallas on Wednesday. “We have to come out, whether the starters are up or down, as a second unit we got to come in and dominate the second unit every night and every game we are in.”The last time the Lakers won in Portland was March 3, 2014, with a starting lineup of Pau Gasol, Kent Bazemore, Jodie Meeks, Wesley Johnson and Kendall Marshall. It would go on to be the first Lakers team to miss the playoffs in years, and would serve as the first of five years out of the postseason.Related Articles Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers The game also strung back-to-back wins together after some drama late in the week, after reports leaked of a tense meeting between team president Magic Johnson and Walton which suggested rocky early going for the team and possible precarious job security for the Lakers coach.Earlier in the day, James suggested that he wasn’t paying attention to any of the rumors around the team — only that he was focused on the bottom line. Afterward, James lent some of the credit for the win to Walton and his staff.“Listen, coaching staff put us in a position to win and it’s up to us to go up and execute,” he said. “Luke can care less about what’s going on outside, we could as well. I’m the last person to ask about scrutiny or anything of that nature. So none of that stuff matters to me, the only thing that matters to me is what goes on inside this locker room both home and away. “Again, the Lakers made it hard on themselves. The bench helped spark a 16-2 run to close the third quarter as the Blazers were dreadfully off-target, and in the fourth, they led by as much as 20 points.The one-two punch of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum stormed back, as they often have before against the Lakers. Combining for 60 points, the duo brought the game to within single digits as the minutes ticked down. It was the second straight game that the Lakers surrendered a big, late lead, but this time, four was the closest Portland would get.It helped that the Lakers finally edged an opponent in free throw attempts (25 to Portland’s 22). They made three of their final four attempts to ice the game.JaVale McGee, who had 12 points, 9 rebounds and six blocked shots, said closing out has been a focus for a team that has lost five games by single digits.“We’re just tired of letting people give up the lead and then coming back and winning,” he said. “We really harping on that like, we’re working this hard, why give it up in the end. So we’ve really been focusing on that fourth-quarter push.”A sluggish beginning seemed to offer yet another ill omen for the Lakers in Portland: In the first seven minutes, the starters seemed out of sync, throwing away five turnovers in the first seven minutes.In the middle of the first quarter, the Blazers went on a 17-2 run, leaving the Lakers looking spun out early, down by 10.It was surprising bench stints that pulled the Lakers out of the funk. Rondo helped bring stability in the first half, and Ivica Zubac, who had been cut out of the rotation entirely headed into Saturday night, performed admirably as a backup to JaVale McGee. By early in the second quarter, the Lakers had built a 10-point lead.The game is the first of back-to-back nights on the court for the Lakers, who face Kawhi Leonard’s Toronto Raptors on Sunday evening (though perhaps not Leonard himself). But now with back-to-back wins to their names, the Lakers feel like the momentum is starting to shift their way after a difficult week.“It’s early, it’s still early,” Rondo said. “My expectations are really high for this team and the young guys are going to continue to get better each night. Myself, LeBron and Coach and the other veterans on the team, our jobs as leaders is to continue to groom these guys and get them ready.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
