Fit-again all-rounder Kedar Jadhav also returned to the squad after missing the Sri Lanka series with a hamstring injury. Also finding place in the team is Mumbai pacer Shardul Thakur . KL Rahul, R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja continue to miss out as the selectors preferred that Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel needed to be given an extended run following their recent good performances.
A powerful Roberto Firmino strike rescued a draw for Jurgen Klopp's team, but the German manager will surely return to Merseyside frustrated after watching his side throw away their commanding lead. In particular, focus has been placed on Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. "I think when you're in position like that, at this level you've got to see the game out".
Pittsburgh and New England enter Sunday's action with a conference-best 11-3 mark, with the Jacksonville Jaguars (10-4) lurking one game back. However, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Steelers are optimistic about Brown's calf injury.
Fisher said he didn't regret any of his choices with Goff, who is a Pro Bowl first alternate this season. Fisher is 12th in National Football League history with 173 coaching wins and, as he pointed out in the interview, coached the Titans and Rams when both teams relocated.
It's been known for days that Stephen Curry won't play in the Warriors' anticipated Christmas matchup against the Cavaliers , but now coach Steve Kerr spelled out why Curry will be on the sidelines. "So if we weren't playing Cleveland on Christmas and I told you Steph hasn't played in a three-on-three game, hasn't had any contact at all and the game is 48 hours from now, you'd say, 'oh, Steph's not going to play'".
In the end, a 3-3 draw was about right for the two clubs fighting for Top 4 Champions League spots. It seems it's either blow out or blow up for Liverpool , who alternate between beating teams by three, four, or even seven goals and then losing the plot and allowing under-performing teams to nick a point away from them.
Former Arsenal striker Wright believes Firmino is the best "nine and a half" in the Premier League . "I just have to make it clear to the players what I want, and they've done that over the last couple of days". Alberto Moreno (ankle) and Nathanial Clyne (back) remain on the sidelines. Britton is a modern-day Swansea great with more than 500 appearances to his name, and guided the club to a 1-1 draw in his first match against Crystal Palace .
Not the dream but a fantastic situation. "In a very hard league, performance-wise we are really consistent so far". "[It's] not too cool but I heard nobody else [is injured], a few knocks as it always is, but they should be OK again". Alberto Moreno (ankle) and Nathanial Clyne (back) remain on the sidelines. Meanwhile, Liverpool FC will aim to get back to winning ways in the Premier League on Boxing Day when they host Swansea City at Anfield.
The Bulldogs also knocked off defending Mountain West champ San Diego State (27-3) on October 21. Catalon has led the Cougars in rushing in each of the past two seasons. The Cougars fell out of the national spotlight a bit this season in the first year under coach Major Applewhite , but they still had a solid year that included an upset of South Florida .
It was their 17th straight win in the league and Pep Guardiola's men now have 55 points. A long ball forward caught out the United defence and, after Riyad Mahrez had been held up on the edge of the box by Chris Smalling , the Algerian rolled the ball into the path of Vardy to finish clinically past David de Gea on 27 minutes.
While Smith and the home side's fast bowlers have been the main protagonists in this series, Warner's has been an intriguing subplot, as he has dealt with England's efforts to restrict his ability to score runs with damaging speed. "The wicket was nice and flat and I love batting in Perth", Warner said. "He was just confused how it got there". Our depth is fantastic, we know what Australian cricket has to offer.
The Seahawks (8-6 ) playoff hopes are barely alive after two consecutive losses, the latest a shocking 42-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams that likely ended their hopes of winning the NFC West. But when Seattle kicks me to the curb, please, the Cowboys, come get me. I still want to be here. That's the only place I would rather be if I get kicked to the curb.
Brian Hoyer (six starts) had 1,245 yards for San Francisco , rookie C.J. Beathard (five starts) has 1,430 while Garoppolo (four starts) has 1,268 yards.

Garoppolo completed 21-of-30 throws for 242 yards, two TDs and an interception, completing passes to nine different receivers.
Serena Williams will return to tennis in Abu Dhabi this week, nearly four months after giving birth. Williams and Ostapenko will be the first women to participate in the 10th edition of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, which has long marked the beginning of the men's global tennis season.
He had scrambled to sack Tyrod Taylor for a 15-yard loss on the Bills' first play back on offense and subsequently stuffed Mike Tolbert for no gain to set up a third-and-25 not even the Patriots could relinquish. It is the longest active streak in North America's four major professional sports and the longest in the National Football League since the 1970 merger.
Speaking at a press conference, Britton said he had no interest in taking on the role full-time. Former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs applied for a vacancy at Swansea past year, losing out to Bob Bradley the predecessor to Clement.
The Panthers (11-4) trailed most of the second half, but Newton drove the Panthers 59 yards completing 4 of 7 passes for 52 yards in the final 3 minutes before scoring on a what could have been a disastrous play. Then they did what bad teams do and beat themselves. A year ago, Ron Rivera's team was a disappointing 6-10 but now owns a 10-4 record this year.
He remained standing on the sideline as the Chargers tried to run out the clock. He missed open receivers and repeatedly flexed his right hand, which he banged up early in the game. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Allen is the first offensive player with an interception since Week 13 of 2015. Right tackle Brandon Shell suffered a head injury at the end of the first half making a tackle on an interception and was replaced by Brent Qvale .
Another week, another National Football League officiating controversy over an overturned catch call. The reasoning for this touchdown being overruled was that Benjamin's left foot hit the ground before he gained possession of the ball. "Nothing more irritating to an official than to make a great call and then someone in a suit in an office in NY incorrectly reverses it", Pereira said on Twitter .
That was a momentum-changing play, as the Saints quickly scored a long touchdown following the butt interception. As the Saints have rolled out to a 13-0 halftime lead over the Atlanta Falcons , Lattimore made one of the crazier plays of the National Football League season so far.
On the women's side, Serena Williams' return for the Melbourne Grand Slam remains in doubt, Victoria Azarenka pulled out of Auckland and US Open champion Sloane Stephens is out of Brisbane. Portuguese journalist Jose Morgado quoted Sousa as saying Nadal "still isn't ready" to practice. Morgado also revealed that Nadal travelled to Barcelona on Monday for another check-up on his troublesome knee.
Wenger also singled out Jack Wilshere for praise after the game and hinted that a contract extension for the midfielder could be completed in the coming weeks. The Gunners trudged off to a chorus of boos at halftime and were no better at the start of the second half as Salah was allowed to maraud forward unopposed.
It's tougher to throw with a lower body injury than it is with an upper body injury. "Paxton's working through those challenges". Osweiler is known for throwing the ball to the other team, and he very well could put the Broncos in the pit of misery once again Sunday in Washington , D.C.
But since Paul returned to the lineup, those concerns have been replaced with widespread awe at the way the Rockets have played. In those 167 minutes, the Rockets have outscored their opponents by a staggering 107 points, as Paul has been devastating in leading Houston's attack against the opposition's bench.
Southampton striker Charlie Austin has been charged by the Football Association with violent conduct after kicking out at the head of Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossl during Saturday's 1-1 draw at St Mary's. "I was very happy that Jonas was so calm, or maybe he was so surprised and had so much pain that he couldn't react how me might otherwise". Pellegrino's opposite number David Wagner was not impressed by Austin's actions and labelled it a "nasty challenge" that "should ...
