Theyve scored more goals than any other team in the opening month of the A-League but Sydney FC still arent firing on all cylinders.Thats the belief of Sky Blues coach Graham Arnold, who isnt afraid to call out one of the few criticisms of his ladder-leading outfits perfect start to their 2016-17 campaign.The glamour club were irresistible early but failed to put Newcastle to the sword in their 2-0 win over the Jets on Saturday, doing just enough to collect their fourth straight win.It means his men have tallied a maximum 12 points from their first four rounds but Arnold is refusing to get carried away.Its round four. Its nothing. For me theres so much more potential in this team, he said.Theyre starting to believe more and more of the quality of this team and what it can do. I think well evolve as the season goes on.The third-year Sydney FC coach is delighted with his sides unblemished defensive record - theyre yet to concede a goal this season - but their attack is far from the final product.Of particular concern to Arnold is the ability of his midfielders to link with sole striker Bobo, despite the 31-year-old Brazilians leading eight shots on goal. He has two of the Sky Blues league-high 11 goals so far.With the ball, its about timing of movement, timing of runs, weight of pass, Arnold said.Still disappointing for me a little bit is were not finding Bobo when hes ready. Bobos making fantastic runs in the box or in behind and we dont see him.The crosses are too late or we take one touch more than we need before we deliver. As a striker, once that happens, then youre left standing still.Once the combination and timing gets better and better between the boys, I think well end up in a real good place.

Adidas Julius Nattinen Jersey . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. LA VILLA, Italy -- Marcel Hirscher was more pleased at finally beating his French rivals than with the fact that he had matched Alberto Tomba with a record fourth giant slalom win in Alta Badia on Sunday.The overall World Cup leader from Austria increased his first-leg lead and finished 0.71 seconds ahead of Mathieu Faivre of France on the steep and dark Gran Risa course. Florian Eisath of Italy was third, 1.10 behind.Hirscher had finished second behind Frenchmen -- Alexis Pinturault twice and Faivre once -- in each of the previous three giant slalom races. Thomas Fanara and Victor Muffat-Jeandet, two more French skiers, have also been highly competitive.Im super happy to get my first GS win of the season, Hirscher said. The French team is the benchmark at moment. All four guys showed in France how strong they are.Pinturault, who won on home snow in Val dIsere last weekend, fell early in his second run, spun around and crashed into the safety netting at high speed. He was charging hard after placing seventh in the opening run.Pinturault was slow getting up but skied down under his own power. He said later that he was not injured but had only sore legs.Olympic champion Ted Ligety slid off course shortly into his first run. The American, a two-time winner on the Gran Risa, has been unable to train properly lately due to severe back pain.I just have stabbing pain all the way down my leg, nerve pain, so I havent been able to ski much, Ligety said. Ive been getting injections and trying to get it sorted out but it hasnt really turned the corner yet.Italian great Tomba captured his wins on the Gran Risa course in 1987, `90, `91 and `94.Hirscher has now won this race four straight years. He also took a slalom in Badia in 2011.Im not thinking about breaking records, Hirscher said. I dont know how long I will ski.Attempting to become the first skier to win six consecutive overall titles, Hirscher increased his lead in the standings to 2218 points ahead of Kjetil Jansrud, who didnt qualify for a second run.ddddddddddddThe most challenging section of the Gran Risa course is usually the steep and dark upper area but many skiers had trouble with an artificial jump on the flatter bottom part this year.Hirscher was slightly out of control going over the jump in his first run but he was perfect in his second trip down.Artificial, built-in jumps are a rarity in giant slalom.Its good to have some parts of a ski race where spectators are screaming and shouting and nervous watching in TV, Hirscher said. I was also watching in the start when one of the guys jumped far away into the flat and it was fun to see.Eisath had just taken the lead and the crowd was going wild when Faivre began his second run.I was listening to music but fortunately I took my headphones out early enough to hear the crowd cheering for Eisath, so I knew I had to really attack to take the lead and I did, Faivre said. But then Hirscher was really perfect in the second run and on a higher level today.It was the first podium result for Eisath in his 100th World Cup race.Its been a really long journey with lots of ups and downs and lots of fighting, said Eisath, who is from the nearby Val dEga and had his entire family and fan club in attendance.Zan Kranjec of Slovenia finished fourth to match his best career result from the season opener in Soelden, Austria.The tCHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs, who face the Miami Marlins Tuesday, not only bolstered their relief corps with a Monday trade with the Los Angeles Angels, they added a completely different look.The Cubs added right-hander Joe Smith, who has a sidearm delivery that contrasts sharply with the Cubs mostly hard-throwing relievers.Hes a sidearm, ground ball guy. We dont have that look or that ability right now in our bullpen,said Jed Hoyer, the Cubs general manager. Its great to have hard-throwing guys with great breaking balls, but its nice to add a different look. Hes also a guy that Joe (manager Joe Maddon) can use to get a big double play in the right spot.The deal for the 32-year-old reliever came as the Cubs wrapped up a busy pre-deadline stretch that also saw arrivals of left-handed relievers Aroldis Chapman and Mike Montgomery.You definitely assess your bullpen over the first half of the season and if there are areas you want to improve, you look to do that, Hoyer said. When we looked at this team that was an area that we thought we could make some changes -- adding two left-handers and adding a guy like Smith, who can be a right-handed specialist. We felt that would improve the mix of our bullpen.The Smith deal reportedly closed just before Mondays 3 p.m. Central time trading deadline. The Cubs gave up Class-A Eugene right-handed pitcher Jesus Castillo, 2/3 with a 3.27 ERA in seven minor league starts.Smith is a veteran of three teams and 10 big league seasons. He is 1-4 with a 3.82 ERA , 25 strikeouts and four saves in 38 appearances this season. Smith has a career 40-27 record with 2.94 ERA and 461 strikeouts in 623 games.He has reached 70 relief outings in each of the last five seasons, showing versatility by both closing and working set-up over the last three years.On July 25, Chicago acquired Chapman -- the left-handed closer recently clocked with a 105-miles per hour fastball -- from the New York Yankees.Five days earlier they landed Montgomery, 27, in a four-player trade with the Seattle Mariners for first base prospect Dan Vogelbach and pitcher Paul Blackburn while receiving minor-league pitcher Jordan Pries.Hoyer said it wasnt just the Cubs looking at bullpen help this time of year.I dont want to say that almost all contenders improve their bullpen, Hoyer said, but Ill bet if you look around the league the majority of teams in contention did something to address their bullpen.The Miami Marlins made one trade prior to the deadline as they shed injured right-hander Colin Rea.But the NL East contenders -- currently 4 1/2 games in back of first-place Washington -- otherwise stood pat as the trading deadline passed and a final eight-week chase commenced.They sent Rea back to the San Diego Padres in exchange for minor league pitcher Luis Castillo. Miami had acquired Rea and pitcher Andrew Cashner in a seven-player deal but reportedly determined Rea was already hurting when he arrived.Most attention this week around the Marlins is on outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, who is just two hits away from becoming the 30th major-league hitter to reach 3,000 career hits.He would be the third to reach 3,000 against Chicago, following Stan Musial (May 13, 1958 at Wrigley Field) and Lou Brock (Aug. 13, 1979 at St. Louis).The Mariners send one of the leagues top strikeout artists against the Cubs in Tuesdays middle game. Right-hander Jose Fernandez (12-5, 2.79 ERA) has 184 strikeouts for the season, good for second in the league.Tuesdays start will be the second of his career against Chicago.The Cubs will counter with right-hander Jason Hammel (10-5, 3.23 ERA) in his 21st start of the season. He is 2-5 with a 3.97 ERA in 11 games (nine starts) against Miami. He has allowed three or fewer runs in 17 starts this year and is 3-0 with a 2.00 ERA in three starts since the All-Star break.

Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. Faf du Plessis has admitted he would not be opposed to becoming South Africas permanent Test captain. Du Plessis is standing in for AB de Villiers, a long-time friend who is expected to return from an elbow injury for the Sri Lanka series in the home summer, and has racked up results that will make it difficult for his influence to be ignored.Under du Plessis, South Africa beat New Zealand in a Test series at home - their first since the disappointing summer of 2016-17 - and inflicted a first-ever 5-nil ODI series whitewash on Australia. They have also now won a third successive Test series in Australia, prompting calls for du Plessis to continue as captain.I would. Ive always said it. I love captaining. Its something I really enjoy doing, du Plessis said. Its important to make sure that with all the stuff we talk about our culture, as a captain you live that and lead from the front. I am enjoying it at the moment. However long it continues, I will always do it.Du Plessis has also received support from Ian Chappell. The captaincy has been terrific. South Africa would be well advised to keep Faf du Plessis on as captain because hes a guy that is buoyed by that responsibility, Chappell said.Since taking over, du Plessis has scored 217 runs at 43.40, only marginally more than his overall average of 41.28, but has looked a more confident batsmen. Du Plessis was dropped for the last Test of the 2015-16 summer against England after a run of poor form but returned in de Villiers place for the New Zealand series, and immediately showed the kind of determination and technique that he displayed in Australia four years ago. At the same time, Chappell also thinks du Plessis being retained in the role will free de Villiers up.Im not convinced AB de Villiers wants that responnsibility I think he might be happy to see Faf keep the job.dddddddddddd AB seems to put himself out in the field - mid-on, mid-off and those sort of positions - put him back in the slips because hes an unbelievable slip fielder. Not only do you retain a very good captain in Faf, you bring back a terrific batsman who doesnt have that responsibility on his shoulders and you get one of the best fielders in cricket in the slips. Win-win all round, he said.De Villiers does, in fact, have a strong desire to lead. He made public his disappointment when Hashim Amla was appointed ahead of him in 2014 and accepted the job temporarily when Amla stepped down in January this year. After two Tests as a stand-in captain, de Villiers was appointed full-time in February but has not had a chance to lead in a Test since then.He has given no indication of an intention to pass on the armband although he acknowledged du Plessis leadership skills during the first Test. Top captaincy by @faf1307, de Villiers tweeted. Once again, not much to say when a team performs like that! Pure class. #ProteaFire at its best!!! Enjoy the celebrations guys- Umlilooooooo.Although ruled out for the entire Australia tour, de Villiers told FIVE AA radio that he hoped to make himself available for the day-night Test in Adelaide. At the time, he was considering flying to Hobart to prepare during the second Test. De Villiers has not travelled to Australia and Russell Domingo, South Africas coach, confirmed he did not think de Villiers would play in the third Test. That will delay a decision South Africa will have to make about how to make room for de Villiers in their line-up. ' ' 'op American finishers were Tommy Ford in 13th and Ryan Cochran-Siegle in 20th with the No. 50 bib.In the opening run, Philipp Schoerghofer was faster than his teammate Hirscher before he lost control and skied through one of the final gates. Erik Read of Canada also crashed into the safety netting.A parallel giant slalom is scheduled for Monday night on the Gran Risa.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf ' ' '
