Lukaku hat-trick helps Everton crush Young Boys

LONDON (Reuters) – Romelu Lukaku looked like the dynamic target man Everton fans have been hoping to see all season, grabbing a hat-trick in a 4-1 win over Young Boys as the knockout stage of the Europa League got underway on Thursday.

Napoli were among the other last-32 first leg winners, beating Trabzonspor 4-0 away, and were considerably happier than Serie A rivals AS Roma whose status among the favourites looked questionable after a disappointing 1-1 home draw with Feyenoord.

Toure absence leaves City title hopes in the balance

LONDON (Reuters) – When Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini carries out his post-season analysis, he will quickly be able to pinpoint that the wheels came off their campaign when Yaya Toure left for the African Nations Cup.

City are without a victory since Toure departed at the start of January and their 1-1 draw at home to Hull City on Saturday was their fourth consecutive winless Premier League game, leaving them seven points adrift of Chelsea at the top.

Chelsea power seven points clear as City are held

LONDON (Reuters) – Chelsea landed a potentially decisive blow in the title race with a 2-1 win at Aston Villa on Saturday that put them seven points clear of Manchester City who hit the self-destruct button in a 1-1 draw at home to Hull City.

It briefly looked like both the top two may drop points when Villa ended a near 11-hour goal drought to level the scores at Villa Park but a thunderous finish from Branislav Ivanovic maximised the embarrassment for Chelsea’s main title rivals.

Able Kane a true hero at the Lane

LONDON (Reuters) – Bent double with his fists clenched in celebration, it was clear how much it meant to Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane to score two goals and win the north London derby against Arsenal on Saturday.

In an era when the local-boy-made-good is becoming an increasingly rare tale, Kane is, as the Tottenham fans proudly exclaim, one of their own — and his goals in the 2-1 victory at White Hart Lane will only cement him further in their affections.
