Stoke-on-Trent, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Manchester United will open the new year with a difficult fixture as the Red Devils will travel to the Britannia to take on Stoke City on Thursday. United claimed a point from a hard-fought 0-0 draw at Tottenham on Sunday, but it was not a costly result as Manchester City and Chelsea also were held to ties from their respective contests, leaving Louis van Gaals men in third place where they sit 10 points back of Jose Mourinhos side. The Red Devils dominated the opening period at White Hart Lane but failed to convert any of its gilt-edge chances. There was a feeling that United would concede a goal against the run of play to come away empty-handed, but Tottenham also failed to find the back of the net despite having the better of play in the second half. According to Van Gaal, Uniteds struggles in the second period were a result of naming an unchanged side while playing two games in the span of three days. And while the United boss now has the luxury of an extra day of rest and a few players returning from injury, Stoke will be out to disrupt visiting United by any means necessary. The Potters were made to grind out a 1-0 victory at Everton on Boxing Day before running out to a 2-0 home win over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, a result that lifted the club to 11th place in the Premier League with 25 points. Despite manager Mark Hughes plans to develop a more attractive style of play at the Britannia, the Potters have been getting results by way of a continued physical presence, something that is sure to frustrate Manchester United in its quest for a 10th straight league match without a loss. Uniteds unbeaten run can only be matched by Manchester City, which has not tasted defeat in 10 league outings. The Citizens will attempt to prolong that streak on Thursday when they welcome Sunderland to the Etihad. The Citizens are only three points back of first-place Chelsea, and with the Blues set to kick off in Thursdays final fixture, they will looking to match Citys result in order to maintain - or possibly extend - their lead at the summit. West Ham United appears to be coming out of the festive period worse for the wear. The Hammers suffered successive defeats to Chelsea and Arsenal to slip out of fourth place, but they will hope to rebound with a more forgiving fixture against a struggling West Brom side at Upton Park. Arsenal moved into a tie with Southampton by improving to 33 points, and the two sides will battle for sole possession of fourth place on Thursday when they meet at St. Marys. Liverpool appears to have found some form after a 4-1 defeat of Swansea City on Monday granted the club a second successive victory. The Reds enter the new year in eighth place in the table and will seek a third win on the trot when they host lowly Leicester City on Thursday. Evertons descent down the Premier League table continued with a third straight loss on Sunday, but the Toffees will attempt to get back to winning ways with maximum points at Hull City on Thursday. Elsewhere in Englands top flight, Newcastle will look to continue its upward trend with a positive result against Burnley, Crystal Palace will attempt to climb out of the drop zone with some much-needed points at Aston Villa and Swansea will hope to rebound from a disappointing defeat when it travels to Loftus Road on short rest to take on QPR.

The Reds will host the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight in the opener of a four-game series at Great American Ball Park, and the debut matchup will feature a pair of pitchers whose recent resumes have included a fair number of bases-clearing hits. Cheap Basketball Shoes .com) - Tony Parker scored 17 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a comfortable 99-85 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday.The surprising Columbus Blue Jackets will try to grab their first lead of the Eastern Conference first round series when they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins for tonights Game 5 at CONSOL Energy Center. The Blue Jackets entered this series against the Metropolitan Division champions as heavy underdogs, but they sit tied with the Penguins at two wins apiece. Columbus has arrived at this point with a pair of overtime victories, including a 4-3 triumph in Wednesdays Game 4 clash at Nationwide Arena that gave the franchise its first home playoff win. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, hopes to rebound after coughing up an early 3-0 lead in Wednesdays game. Holding leads has been an issue for both clubs in this postseason encounter. According to Elias Sports Bureau, this series is the first in league history in which four consecutive games have been won by a team which has trailed by at least two goals. Marc-Andre Fleury made 42 saves in Game 4, but the Penguins goaltender is aiming for a bounce-back performance on Saturday. The veteran backstop made a stickhandling blunder to allow Columbus to tie the game in the final minute of regulation before yielding a weak goal to Nick Foligno in overtime. "He was our best player in the (Game 4) last night. Unfortunately a mistake, the bouncing puck behind the net, cost us in the last 30 seconds of the game," Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said of Fleury. "He was our best player in the game. He has to rebound now from that, as does our team." Although he helped Pittsburgh win a Stanley Cup title in 2009, Fleurys postseason struggles for the Pens over the last few seasons have been well- documented. Last spring, he was benched in the middle of Pittsburghs first- round series win over the New York Islanders and replaced by Tomas Vokoun as the starter for the rest of the playoffs. Vokoun is still with the Pittsburgh organization, but hasnt played an NHL game since last spring due to ongoing issues with a blood clot. Fleurys current backup Jeff Zatkoff has never played in the postseason. Fleury isnt Pittsburghs only problem in this series, as the club is still waiting for superstar forwards Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to record their first goals of the 2014 playoffs. Both players have four assists through four games. "(Crosby and Malkin) are our best players," Bylsma said. "We need more from our whole team. We need more from them." Foligno, who sat out the first two games of this series due to injury, tallied the game-winner 2:49 into OT on Wednesday. He carried the pucck up the left wing through the neutral zone in a 1-on-1 with Pens defenseman Matt Niskanen, then released a long-distance shot from above the left circle.dddddddddddd The puck fluttered toward Fleury and dipped below his glove hand before hitting the net and ending the game. "I didnt think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so Im thanking my lucky stars tonight," Foligno said. Fleury also was responsible for a miscue leading to the Blue Jackets tying goal with less than 24 seconds remaining in regulation. He headed behind his net to play a Jack Johnson dump-in, but the puck hopped over his stick and found Ryan Johansen, who dished into the slot for a successful shot by Brandon Dubinsky. In a performance that was the polar opposite of Fleury, Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky started the game slowly and finished strong. Last seasons Vezina Trophy winner clocked in with 22 stops after giving up the games first three scores in a span of just over five minutes in the first period. Johansen and Boone Jenner notched the other goals for the Blue Jackets, who had gone 0-3 in Ohios capital in the postseason before Wednesdays triumph. Craig Adams, Chris Kunitz and James Neal tallied for the Penguins, who will try to bounce back with a better effort tonight on home ice to regain a lead in this best-of-seven battle. "The work, compete and battle level has been the most troubling thing from our team," Bylsma said. "Thats been the thing throughout this series thats been the most troubling. Thats got to be raised up to a level that is necessary at this time of year, this type of hockey, playoff hockey. We have ourselves in a series now. Its 2-2, best-of-three. We have to have that in our game and in our team if we are going to win this series." Prior to Game 4, the Blue Jackets scratched defenseman Ryan Murray with a right foot injury suffered when he took a shot to the skate in practice. Murray is questionable for Game 5, as is fellow defenseman Fedor Tyutin, who could be back in the lineup Saturday after missing the past two outings with an upper-body issue. Pittsburgh was 28-9-4 in the Steel City during the regular season, while the Blue Jackets were 21-17-3 as the visiting team. Columbus road win in Game 2, a 4-3 double-overtime victory, marked just the third time the Jackets won in Pittsburgh over 11 all-time meetings. Game 6 of this series is scheduled for Monday in Columbus. If needed, a decisive seventh game is set for Wednesday at CONSOL Energy Center.
