LIVERPOOL VS LEICESTER CITYLIVERPOOL (4-3-3)MIGNOLET, CLYNE, SKRTEL, SAKHO, MORENO, HENDERSON, LUCAS, CAN, LALLANA, FIRMINO, COUTINHOLEICESTER (4-4-2)VARDY, OKAZAKI, MAHREZ, KING, KANTE, ALBRIGHTON, DE LAET, FUCHS, MORGAN, SIMPSON, SCHMEICHELLeicester City’s remarkable success story continues amid growing belief that they could actually win the Barclays Premier League title. The 3-2 win at Everton last Saturday extended their unbeaten league run to 10 games, winning eight.The victory at Goodison Park took Leicester five points clear at the top of the Premier League. Though Arsenal reduced that lead to two points following their 2-1 win over Manchester City at the Emirates on Monday, Leicester still go into the Christmas period top of the tree.And past history suggests a happy new year lies ahead for the Foxes; of the past 23 Premier League champions, 11 were top at Christmas, while all but one – Aston Villa in 1999 – finished the season in the top four, suggesting Champions League football beckons for the King Power Stadium.Liverpool, beaten 2-0 by Watford at Vicarage Road last Sunday, have gone three league games without a win, losing two. Leicester have failed to win in their last four league visits to Anfield, drawing last season and losing the previous three. Previously, Leicester had won three in a row at Liverpool.At Goodison, Riyad Mahrez netted two penalties and now has seven goals in nine Premier League appearances in the month of December, including 2015.Liverpool are still missing Joseph Gomez, Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge and give tests to Dejan Lovren, James Milner and Simon Mignloet, who all missed the defeat at Watford. Leicester welcome back Robert Huth after suspension and test Danny Drinkwater and Jamie Vardy.
Donegal hurlers put in a solid display of hurling to make it two wins on the trot after accounting for Tyrone at Healy Park this afternoon.Played in freezing conditions, Ray Durack’s men chipped away at point after point to eventually win 0-9 to 0-14.The visitors went in ahead at the break 0-7 to 0-5 ahead despite Tyrone pressing ahead with two early points. Donegal continued to point through the likes of Lee Henderson and Cullen and went 0-11 to 0-8 ahead.If there was any chance of Tyrone responding then Donegal snuffed it out with a series of scores as they raced towards the final whistle courtesy of Paul Sheridan and Enda McDermott.Ray Durack said after his side’s recent win over Monaghan that they did not fear Tyrone.This afternoon he proved why and the team deserve great credit. It was the home team who started brightest, notching a couple of score within the first two minutes, but once settled, Donegal were back on level terms with scores from Henderson and Cullen.The first half saw the lead change a number of times but Donegal managed to forge a two point lead ending the half 0-07 to 0-05 in front.They re-emerged to a snowy backdrop and despite a strong start by Tyrone, Donegal kept a busy work rate up and never allowed them to settle despite Tyrone taking the lead, 0-08 to 0-07, five minutes into the half.Donegal clawed back level with a Ronan McDermott point and this was followed by three scores from Henderson to put them 0-11 to 0-08 ahead. Tyrone replied with a Damien Casey point.In the dying minutes Donegal went into scoring overdrive with a rapid fire succession of scores from Paul Sheridan, Enda McDermott and Sheridan again to leave the visitors running out victors by a score line of 0-14 to 0-09.
