TSN. Carolina Hurricanes Pro Shop .ca presents its latest weekly power rankings for the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season. Rankings were weighted evenly between separate lists made by TSN.cas soccer editors. 1. Chelsea (Last Week-1) For 51 minutes Chelsea searched for a breakthrough against Fulham. Enter Andre Schurrle who would hit in the 52nd, 65th and 68th minutes to capture a 3-1 victory to expand Chelseas lead at the top of the table. 2. Liverpool (LW-3) Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling and Steven Gerrard were all on target as Liverpool rolled to a convincing 3-0 victory over Southampton. Despite the dominance, keeper Simon Mignolet was forced to make a few big stops to keep his clean sheet. 3. Manchester City (LW-2) Did not play this week due to participation in the Capital One Cup. 4. Arsenal (LW-4) Arsenals title challenge took a step backwards as they fell 1-0 to Stoke City at Britannia Stadium. The difference was a penalty awarded when Laurent Koscielny was penalized for playing the ball with his arm in the defensive area. 5. Tottenham (LW-5) Roberto Soldado scored in the first half and Tottenham rode that marker to a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City at White Hart Lane. Hugo Lloris picked up the clean sheet in the victory. 6.

Manchester United (LW-6) Game rescheduled due to opponents participation in Capital One Cup. 8. Newcastle United (LW-8) A 4-1 victory for Newcastle over Hull has been overshadowed by the actions of manager Alan Pardew. After Hull midfielder David Meyler pushed him aside to get a ball that had gone out of bounds, Pardew confronted and then head butted Meyler. The Newcastle boss was sent off for the incident, immediately fined by the team and charged with violent conduct by the FA in the aftermath. 9. Southampton (LW-9) Southampton got all they could handle and more in a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Liverpool. The Saints saw time on the ball but were not able to generate any offence, though they had chances. 10.

Stoke City (LW-15) Jonathan Walters converted a 76th minute penalty to provide Stoke with their margin of victory in a 1-0 triumph over Arsenal. The penalty was given thanks to a Laurent Koscielny handball in the box. 12. West Ham United (LW-10) West Ham looked like they were on their way to a solid road point when they conceded the winning marker, 10 minutes from time in a 1-0 loss to Everton. 13. Swansea City (LW- 12) It looked like Jonathan De Guzmans first half marker was going to be enough to lead the Swans to victory before Crystal Palace was awarded a penalty in the 82nd minute which they converted in a 1-1 draw. 14. Hull City (LW-11) In a game that will be remembered for a contentious incident between Hull City midfielder David Meyler and Newcastle head coach Alan Pardew, the Tigers were thrashed 4-1 at home. 15. Norwich City (LW-13) After a third minute Wesley Hoolahan goal gave Norwich a lead over Aston Villa, they crumbled to a 4-1 defeat.

Cardiff City (LW-20) Ole Gunnar Solskjaers side slumped to another defeat as they continue to battle relegation, falling this time 1-0 at the hands of Tottenham. The loss leaves the Welsh side three points from 17th place and with the second worst differential in the league. Hurricanes Jerseys 2021 .Y. - OK, it is done. Fake Hurricanes Jerseys . And, just for good measure, lets say the lottery team finishes the game short-handed because two starters come down with the very same injury.PORTLAND - DeMar DeRozan validated his newly minted All-Star title, spearheading the Raptors comeback on Saturday but theres one play hed like to have back. With just under five seconds remaining - the Raptors having clawed back from a 19-point deficit and pulled within one - DeRozan took the handoff from Chuck Hayes. As he tried to create space, turning the corner with Blazers guard Wesley Matthews draped all over him, the first-time All-Star fumbled the ball off his calf. His reaction was instant and said it all. He knew he, quite literally, dropped the ball. "I lost the ball, I put that one on me," DeRozan said, owning up to the miscue. "Ive got to keep the ball in my hands and not turn it over, at least give us a chance to get a shot off." Fact is the Raptors had that opportunity, a shot to steal a game they had no business hanging around in, because of DeRozans heroics. DeRozan, like the rest of his teammates, came out flat in the first half. Coming off a win in Denver the night before, Toronto shot 35 per cent from the field in the opening 24 minutes, misfiring on all eight attempts from three-point range. As a team they couldnt execute, missed makeable shots and left their defensive effort in the Mile High City. It was ugly. "The first half, we came out with a typical back-to-back approach," said coach Dwane Casey, who was critical of his team after they let up in the fourth quarter of Fridays double digit victory over the Nuggets. "It wasnt us." DeRozan, playing in his second game after missing two with an ankle injury, had just six points, shooting 2-of-8. Whatever was said at the break seemed to wake up the fifth-year guard. DeRozan could do no wrong in the second half, where he scored 30 of his game-high 36 points and recorded 10 of his career-best 12 assists. "I mean, hes an All-Star. Yall see it," said Kyle Lowry, who should be joining DeRozan in New Orleans later this month. "Hes an All-Star for a reason. He did an unbelievable job of making shots, getting to the line and just getting it going. We know. Weve seen it before so its no surprise to us." Lowry, like his backcourt comrade, was also much better in the second half - he had 23 points and eight assists on the night - as were subs Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes, who came in andd helped the Raptors find themselves defensively. Hurricanes Jerseys 2020. . The resilient Raptors dug deep once again - something weve become accustomed to seeing after slow starts this season - and when it came down to one final possession, there was never a doubt who the play was being drawn up for. "[DeRozan] wanted the ball and when your best player, your All-Star wants to the ball you give him the ball," Lowry said. "They did a good job defensively and [Matthews] is strong enough to do that but Im still getting the ball to [DeRozan] every single time in that position." Within seconds of losing the ball, DeRozan walked off with both hands on his head in disappointment. He tapped his chest as if to say, "my bad" and lifted the jersey over his head. "We put ourselves in that position," Casey said, stressing the poor start. "[DeRozan] wanted the ball, we gave it to him, but I give him props for getting us to that point." "I commend DeMar for carrying us. He put us on his shoulders and took us down the stretch and put us in a position to win. Thats all you ask." The loss - Torontos sixth straight in Portland - said a lot about how far the Raptors have come, how far DeRozan has come. If there was ever any doubt about DeRozans All-Star candidacy or his growth as a leader, Saturdays game served as a silencer. He had his full arsenal on display, demanded the ball with the game in the balance and when it was all said and done he took responsibility for his blunder. No excuses, he pointed the finger at himself. Meanwhile, his team fought the good fight, something they failed to do when they last visited Portland. A year ago, the Raptors experienced the absolutely lowest point of an already low season, dropping an embarrassing 92-74 contest to the Blazers on Dec. 10, 2012, the finale of a winless five-game road trip. They lost Lowry and Andrea Bargnani to long-term injuries in the game, while Amir Johnson was ejected for uncharacteristically tossing his mouth-guard at an official. Their skid in Portland continues, they havent won in The City of Roses in seven years, but theyre not the same team that left the city in turmoil 13 months ago. "We put ourselves in a position to win the game even after all that," Casey said. "So thats what you have to ask for." ' ' '
