Anorthosis and Omonia take centre stage in Cyprus

first_imgRound 23 in the Cyprus football championship continues on Wednesday with three more fixtures, with the clash at the Antonis Papadopoulos between third-placed Anorthosis and sixth-placed Omonia taking centre stage.In the other games, second-placed Apollon travel to Nicosia to face Doxa Katokopias at the Makarion stadium while the final game will be played at the Tsirion stadium between AEL and Ermis Aradippou.Both teams will be looking for the three points at the Antonis Papadopoulos though for slightly different reasons.Anorthosis are seven points off the top with a game in hand over leaders Apoel and they need to stay within striking distance of the champions if they are to maintain their championship hopes.On the other hand Omonia, who have dropped just three points since Ivaylo Petev took over, have to climb up to fourth if they are to compete in Europe next year via the championship. Currently they are nine points adrift of Wednesday’s opponents.For the same reason AEL, just a point above Omonia, will be gunning for the win against Ermis Aradippou while Apollon should prove too strong for Doxa, who sit comfortably in a mid-table position 10 points from the danger zone.Tuesday results:Apoel 7-1 Ethnikos AchnasNea Salamina 2-0 OlympiakosAris 0-6 Pafos FCAEK 2-1 Alkilast_img read more

Pochettino hails Harry Kane as the Premier League’s best striker

first_img1 Harry Kane Mauricio Pochettino believes Harry Kane is the best striker in the Premier League following his two-goal haul against Bournemouth on Sunday.Kane’s double takes his league tally to 21 goals this season and moves him two ahead of Jamie Vardy and three up on Romelu Lukaku in the hunt for the Golden Boot.The 22-year-old is also only the fifth Englishman to hit 20 goals in consecutive Premier League campaigns, joining Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Robbie Fowler and Andy Cole in achieving the feat.“Is he the best striker in the Premier League? For me, yes. Maybe it’s difficult to say he’s the best, but he’s one of the best,” Pochettino said.“He’s one of the best strikers of a ball and his performance was fantastic today. It was a really good game for him.”After the international break, Tottenham face a challenging run of games, with trips to Liverpool and Stoke coming either side of a home fixture against Manchester United.It could give an opportunity to Leicester to extend their advantage in the title race while Arsenal and Manchester City are 11 and 15 points behind respectively, both with a game in hand.“The gap Leicester have with us, Arsenal and City, we need to reduce,” Pochettino said.“It’s true they have a good advantage but we need to fight and believe. We need to believe.”last_img read more
