Mourinho's tally is two Champions League and two Europa Leagues , having also won the latter when it was the Uefa Cup. Jose Mourinho has made history by becoming the first manager to win both major European trophies twice after Manchester United clinched the Europa League .
But following consultation with the authorities, and with the United Kingdom terror threat raised to "critical", it has been determined inappropriate for Chelsea's parade to go ahead. Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis said: "As always, the safety of our supporters and staff is paramount and we are in close contact with security services".
On Wednesday night, United became the fifth team to complete the treble. Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana had a clash with his teammate in an attempt to clear the ball, while leaving an empty net in front of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba , whose shot went off the post.
Arsenal continued their outstanding league form into the FA Cup final and dominated Chelsea for most parts of the game. Chelsea are not out of this by any means, but will have to play better in the second half. Ramsey held himself back as Sanchez ran through to score the opener at Wembley, leaving Chelsea stunned. His movement, hunger and skill caused a nuisance throughout for unusually rattled Chelsea .
Morgan's innings and an unbeaten 77 from Moeen Ali, with the two left-handers sharing a century stand, helped England pile up 339 for six against South Africa . However, England bounced back strong, dismissing both the set batsmen in successive overs. But there's no significant swelling to the knee or anything.
Wenger, who has been under intense pressure in the Gunners hotseat this season, has now won the competition an unmatched seven times, while it is also the club's 13 such triumph - also a record. "I love to make late runs into the box", Ramsey said. However, Willian, on as a substitute, delivered the ball from the right and Costa scored with a scuffed effort keeper Ospina - selected ahead of former Chelsea man Petr Cech - got his hand to but was unable to keep out of the net.
Arsenal sealed their win when Ramsey headed in from 12 yards, before Ospina made a point-blank save to deny Costa late on. Mertesacker was enormous throughout, with the only blot on his display - much to his misfortune - coming when he stuck out his right foot to deflect Diego Costa's shot past his own goalkeeper, David Ospina, for Chelsea's 76th-minute equalizer.
Welbeck also called the win "a great team performance" after Aaron Ramsey found the winning goal three minutes after Diego Costa had equalised for 10-man Chelsea . I'm happy for the manager. Jamie Carragher praised Arsenal's tactical approach in the FA Cup final after Alexis Sanchez scored the victor against Chelsea at Wembley .
John McGraw's Giants won the rematch the following year 4-0 with one tie before Ruth gave the Yankees their first title the following year to cap the first season at Yankee Stadium. have enough firepower to go toe-to-toe with the Warriors, who added superstar Kevin Durant to a team that won 73 games a year ago before its Finals flameout.
Arsenal took the lead through Alexis Sanchez in the fourth minute but Chelsea equalised when Diego Costa poked home from close range in the second half. But the Gunners kept their focus, with Sanchez narrowly missing the target from long range and forcing a goal-line clearance from Gary Cahill minutes later.
Another Wembley triumph arguably vindicates Arsenal's reported decision to offer Wenger, out of contract at the end of this term, a new two-year contract despite a season of criticism. Chelsea struggled to cope with Arsenal's intensity and impose itself, with the Gunners arguably producing their best 45 minutes of the season. Honestly, the goal after three minutes in this way, it [should have been] disallowed because there was a clear handball but our start wasn't good for the first ...
In the NFL, which was then known as the American Professional Football Association, the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions met three straight times from 1952-54. Oddsmakers have made the Warriors a huge favorite in the series at minus-260, meaning a bettor would have to put $260 on Golden State to win $100. "The whole underdog thing is amusing to me, because, yeah, at the end of the day we are defending our title", Love said Saturday, per ESPN's Dave McMenamin.
Antonio Conte's side had won 30 Premier League games this season, and went into the game with a full strength squad against an Arsenal team with several players absent through injury. "We know this team has suffered". Chelsea also started in the #FACup third round where they were drawn at home against League One side Peterborough United.
Yet's Arsenal's enthusiasm and grit were unrecognisable from the capitulations we witnessed in too many Premier League fixtures. A run of eight wins in nine - too little, too late - had left them short of the four Champions League qualifying places, but the Cup presented a chance to paint a rosy glow on the campaign.
It's the seventh cup for manager Arsene Wenger , more than any other manager in history. One of the most thrilling matches, Arsenal conceded two goals in the final three minutes. 26 Arsenal come close again, as Welbeck's effort is scrambled clear by Chelsea captain Gary Cahill . Chelsea were resurgent at the start of the second half, with Kante and Moses both testing Ospina within five minutes of the restart.
Chelsea were expected to pressurise the Gunners backline early on, but it was Arsenal who started brighter and were in front inside four minutes. However, Sanchez did seem to handle the ball when charging down N'Golo Kante's clearance. Arsenal player ratings: Ospina 6, Holding 6, Mertesacker 9, Monreal 8, Bellerin 9, Ramsey 9, Xhaka 6, Oxlade-Chamberlain 6, Ozil 7, Sanchez 10, Welbeck 8.
But just minutes later it was Arsenal ahead again, with Ramsey scoring to make it 2-1. Although Diego Costa equalized in the 76th, bringing down Willian's lofted ball on his chest and striking past David Ospina, Arsenal was back in front inside three minutes.
They fully deserved this win, and it's hard not to think Wenger deserves this happiness after such a hard and distressing season. "They showed strength, unity and played spectacular football today again". Sanchez looked for a second on 14 minutes but his fierce 25-yard effort dipped just over the Chelsea goal. Ozil's corner was headed on to a post by Welbeck and Ramsey also hit the woodwork from three yards out.

English Premier League (EPL) side Manchester United lifted the Europa League trophy with a 2-0 victory over Ajax Amsterdam in the final, also securing an automatic spot in next season's UEFA Champions League group phase. Mourinho, 54, said he was looking forward to taking a break from football , but he will not be able to keep his mind off United matters for long. De Gea has continually been linked with a move to Real Madrid whose pursuit of the United 'keeper fell through prior ...
Although Valtteri Bottas qualified in third place , his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton was out of the top 10. Dutch teenager Max Verstappen was fourth for Red Bull ahead of Hamilton, Ricciardo and the Toro Rosso pairing of the ever-improving Spaniard Carlos Sainz and Russian Daniil Kvyat .
What would have happened to our cricket if a generation failed to become champions in the ICC Trophy and failed to play the World Cup for the first time? I realised that you need to control the aggression with which you need to play.

When the final whistle blew on Arsenal's record 13th FA Cup title, Mertesacker trotted over to Ospina and they shared a warm embrace. "I feel I am in a public job, I accept to be criticised and I accept that people don't agree with me", he added.
The NBA Playoffs are down to just the final two teams, so I figured I would deviate one more time from the Sacramento Kings content and write a bit about the NBA Playoffs . It's the rubber match of their two previous series, which saw Golden State win the championship in 2015 and the Cavs take the rematch last season. And the Celtics, a team that without Thomas relies heavily on ball movement, timely cuts to the basket and the need to knock down open shots, simply failed to once again ...
The latest CBO analysis came after House Republicans made changes to the bill earlier this month to try to ensure that people with pre-existing medical conditions can still get insurance. Kevin Brady , R-Texas, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. The state doesn't have the resources to make up the difference. The bill would not just rollback an Obama-era expansion of Medicaid, which states like OH accepted, but reduce the program further.
Thomas had his front tooth knocked out in Game 1 of the conference semifinals against Washington, but it was a lingering hip injury he aggravated later in the series against the Wizards that would end his season prematurely. Just six other players have made it to at least that many in a row, and they all were part of the Celtics' dynasty, which spanned the 1950s into the 1960s.
However, referee Anthony Taylor over-ruled his assistant, who had flagged for offside, and allowed the goal to stand. His deft cross was perfectly weighted for the onrushing Aaron Ramsey to head beyond Thibaut Courtois. Mertesacker was a rock at the heart of the Arsenal defence all day. The club became Cup holders again for the second time with a late goal by Ted Drake, whose goal gave new life to the match against Sheffield United where spectators were silent throughout it.
However, Arsenal fully deserved the win on Saturday, thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey , and claimed their thirteenth FA Cup , more than any other club. "We have a board meeting on Tuesday, and on Wednesday or Thursday it will all be very clear". Wenger, who has been in charge at Arsenal for 21 years, is yet to reveal whether he will sign an extension to the contract that expires at the end of the season.
Antonio Conte fell short in his bid to emulate Italian countryman Carlo Ancelotti by leading Chelsea to a Premier League and FA Cup Double in his first season as manager. A fourth minute goal from Alexis Sanchez and a pinpoint header from Ramsey in the 78th did not tell the whole story of Arsenal's high tempo 2-1 victory.
I think that this goal (should have been) disallowed because there is a clear handball". "This team has suffered, but they're united and they responded. But Arsenal had other plans, and within a minute the Gunners were back in front. " Next season , for sure, we must pay great attention, great attention to understand that we have to improve and in the number in the squad and also in the quality", he said.
The Cavaliers and Warriors split their two meetings this season, both winning at home. LeBron James and company were unbeaten through 10 games before losing to the Celtics on a last-second 3-pointer in Sunday's Game 3.

Seeking a second straight win to start a nine-game trip, Snitker will go with right-hander Mike Foltynewicz , who enjoyed his last visit to San Francisco . Cain ran down Belt's deflected throw, but his relay to Hundley was too late to get a sliding Swanson, who scored from first base on the play to make it 2-0.
Even after beating Chelsea 2-1 in the final on Saturday, Wenger indicated he has to stew until Tuesday's board meeting before discovering whether his 21-year reign will be extended by the record 13-time FA Cup winners. "I think that my players were distracted", he added. But Arsenal had the last laugh when Chelsea's defence went AWOL again, allowing Ramsey the freedom of the box to head substitute Olivier Giroud's astute cut-back past Courtois.
Interestingly, this is sixth time in eight Finals appearances that a LeBron James led team has entered as an underdog. For the youngsters who may not be aware - Laimbeer's "Bad Boy" Pistons battled Jordan's Bulls for years in the postseason and they had no problem putting Jordan on his back any chance they got.
They have now won it a record 13 times while manager Arsene Wenger, who is yet to say whether he will be extending his 21-year reign, is now the most successful manager in the history of the competition with seven wins. I said last week this team will be in the championship with one or two good buys. "To play a handsome final like this and lose is a little bitter, but that's football".
Although the Celtics won the next game without him, Cleveland went on to win the series in five games. It spurred the most intensest frenzy surrounding an National Basketball Association free agent decision since James announced in 2014 that he would return to the Cavaliers after spending four seasons with the Miami Heat .
Just don't try to tell them that. Myers said Kerr has been at practices and in coaches' meetings but still has not been able to coach. "I think what it has to do with, it has to do with the fact he's got a nice, long, fat contract with the Cavs and he realizes that he can finally afford to pay me the money that he owes me for the shooting game back in 2000 or whenever it was", Brown said with a grin.
The club headed to Stockholm under a cloud of tragedy but manager José Mourinho rallied his troops with the message to "do it for the city" , and they certainly delivered as Herrera put in a man of the match performance in what was a comfortable victory for the Red Devils .

Bertens has again hit top form on the clay and will look to match her Roland Garros run from 12 months ago, when she was a surprise semi-finalist. Underlining her credentials for a second grand slam crown, 33-year-old Stosur held her nerve in a rollercoaster encounter to secure her ninth career title and second in Strasbourg after also hoisting the trophy as a wildcard in 2015.
Worth keeping an eye on some of the up-and-coming younger guys in Paris , such as Alexander Zverev , Dominic Thiem and Nick Kyrgios. That quintet has won 46 of the last 48 Grand Slam titles, a dozen-year stretch of dominance.

After the break Victor Moses left Chelsea down to ten men following a second booking, while Aaron Ramsey's instant reply to Diego Costa's leveller eventually won the showpiece. Costa then equalized for Chelsea with 14 minutes to go, seemingly putting the Premier League champions into the driver's seat, but Ramsey popped up shortly after to deflate their counterparts and Arsenal held on to lift the trophy.
Pakistan have never won the Champions Trophy but they reached the semi-finals in 2004 and 2009. After losing out to the West Indies in the Twenty20 World Cup, you look at the team now and they have some exciting players.

Sarfraz Ahmed has led the Pakistani side on only four occasions before coming into the tournament and has been successful in winning ...
LeBron James was whistled for his fourth foul with almost seven minutes left in the first half Tuesday, sending him to the bench early in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. Golden State led the league with a 67-15 record this season and is 27-1 in their last 28 games, including the playoffs. The win sets up a third consecutive match-up with Western Conference champion Golden State, the team it beat in the finals last season to claim the franchise's first championship.
After Sanchez used his arm to block N'Golo Kante's attempted clearance, the ball ricocheted towards Ramsey, who was in an offside position. However, after conferring with his assistant, referee Anthony Taylor elected to allow the goal to give Arsenal a surprising early lead in the cup final.
That won't change. I'm not saying we're going to look forward to that. True to James' word, on the night he passed Jordan as the most prolific scorer in postseason history, he also tallied eight rebounds and eight assists in three quarters.
And now we have a new supercoach on the tour, stepping into the shoes vacated by Boris Becker at the end of previous year. Djokovic , who has wrestled with injuries and lack of confidence since winning the French Open last June, had looked his old dominant self when he beat Dominic Thiem in Saturday's semi-final but was unable to recapture that form on Sunday.
The current holder of the Stanley Cup "Pittsburgh" in the first leg of the Eastern conference finals " Ottawa - Senators " did not pay attention to his status as outsiders, and just went out on the ice and scored an away win.
