Soccer-Toothless Leicester desperately need a fox in the box

(Adds details in para three) By Justin Palmer LONDON, Nov 26 (Reuters) – What Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson would give for a Tony Cottee, Steve Claridge or Emile Heskey right now — the club’s strikers of Premier League yore with a predatory eye for goal. When Leicester put five goals past a startled Manchester United on a heady Sunday in late September, mounting a barnstorming comeback from 3-1 down for an unlikely 5-3 home triumph, the Foxes looked like they belonged back in the elite. But their first season back in England’s top flight since demotion in 2004 has since turned sour. …

Totti laments CSKA’s ‘punch from Tyson’

AS Roma's Italian forward Francesco Totti reacts during the UEFA Champions League match between CSKA Moscow and AS Roma at the Khimki Arena in Khimki, outside Moscow on November 25, 2014Stunned Roma captain Francesco Totti admitted a 1-1 draw with CSKA that has left the Serie A club's Champions League last 16 chances hanging by a thread felt like a "punch from Tyson". A Roma win coupled with a Bayern Munich victory at Manchester City would have secured the Italian side's qualification for the knockout phase alongside the Bundesliga giants for the first time since 2011. Instead, CSKA's late leveller in the earlier Moscow fixture provided the inspiration for City ahead of a stunning 3-2 win over Bayern thanks to a Sergio Aguero treble, including an injury-time winner, at Etihad Stadium. Totti, who had become the competition's oldest scorer when he levelled for Roma away to City in September, said the goal was like taking a wallop from former heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson.

Fabregas hits back at Ramos in Spain commitment row

Spain's defender Sergio Ramos celebrates a goal during the FIFA 2014 World Cup qualifier match against Finland at the Molinon stadium in Gijon on March 22, 2013Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said he was offended by Spanish international teammate Sergio Ramos questioning his commitment to La Roja after pulling out of games against Belarus and Germany earlier this month through injury. Fabregas was allowed to return to London by Spain's medical team despite scans failing to prove a significant injury just two days after completing the 90 minutes in Chelsea's 2-1 win at Liverpool. Ramos, who missed Spain's previous two Euro 2016 qualifiers due to a calf injury, then sent a thinly veiled barb at Fabregas and club teammate Diego Costa, who also pulled out of the squad to an ongoing hamstring problem.

Aguero up with Messi, Ronaldo – Lampard

Manchester City's Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero celebrates scoring a goal from a penalty kick during the UEFA Champions League match against Bayern Munich at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on November 25, 2014Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard believes that his team-mate Sergio Aguero stands comparison with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo following his stunning Champions League hat-trick against Bayern Munich. Having opened the scoring in the 21st minute of Tuesday's game at the Etihad Stadium, Aguero struck again in the 85th and 91st minutes as City roared back from behind to win 3-2 and keep their hopes of a last-16 place flickering. City will go through if they win away to Roma in their last Group E game on December 10 and CSKA Moscow fail to win away to Bayern, while a draw could also be enough if the Russian champions lose in Munich.

A Jan Kirchhoff own goal in the 44th minute made it 3-0 and second-half goals from substitutes Didier Drogba and Ramires allowed Chelsea to extend their unbeaten start to the season to 19 games in all competitions. …
