LIVERPOOL, England - Diego Costas second-half goal earned Chelsea a 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday as the unbeaten leader negotiated another tough test in its relentless challenge for the Premier League title. Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey .Dropped by Spain on Friday to allow him to recover from a string of nagging injuries, Costa started at Anfield and drove home his 10th league goal of the season in the 67th minute after Cesar Azpilicuetas cross was parried out.Chelsea had to come from behind to secure a ninth victory in 11 games after German midfielder Emre Can scored for Liverpool from a deflected shot in the ninth minute.Gary Cahill equalized with a scrappy goal from a corner in the 14th that required confirmation from goal-line technology, and Costa capped the comeback to continue his prolific first season at Stamford Bridge.In the second half, we showed something new, which is to be 1-1 at Anfield and not accept the result as a good result and play to win, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said. I think we were very impressive. We want to play. We want to win. We want the ball. The personality of the team is amazing.Asked if his team could go through the season unbeaten, Mourinho said it would be the impossible job.Chelseas 2-0 win here in April sparked by Steven Gerrards slip for Demba Bas first goal was a key factor in Liverpool losing out on the league title last season, and the two clubs paths have gone in opposite ways ever since.Chelsea hasnt lost in 13 league games since and is the overwhelming favourite to capture the title this season, especially having played four of its toughest fixtures Liverpool, Everton and the two Manchester clubs away. Liverpool, meanwhile, is now 15 points adrift of Chelsea and has only won four of 11 matches this campaign.Getting into the top four is the main aim for us, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said.Rodgers was under pressure to get a result and not just because of his teams huge deficit to Chelsea. He had also prioritized this game by fielding what many perceived as a weakened team against Real Madrid in the Champions League in midweek, a decision that was widely criticized.His regulars, including Gerrard, Raheem Sterling and Mario Balotelli, returned in a lineup showing seven changes from Tuesdays 1-0 loss, but the gamble didnt pay off.Its been a difficult week for us, said Rodgers, who added that he didnt regret any decisions he made this week.It was one of the starters in Madrid who opened the scoring. Can collected the ball 35 metres out, advanced toward the penalty area under no pressure and struck a fierce shot that deflected off Cahills shoulder and spun into the net, past wrong-footed goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.Cahill made amends five minutes later with a scrappy goal from a corner when Liverpools marking was abject. Costas header was flicked on by John Terry and batted out by goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. Cahill side-footed the loose ball straight at Mignolet, who caught it but fell backward and carried the ball over the line.Chelsea stayed on the offensive for the rest of the half and nervousness spread through Anfield and that appeared to transmit to the Liverpool team as passes went astray and clearances were rushed.The second half was more even, but Costa always looked threatening, producing an overhead kick in the 51st that flew over the bar.He made no mistake with his next chance, slamming a right-foot volley low into the net after Azpilicueta had escaped down the left past Sterling.Chelsea survived a strong penalty claim when Cahill appeared to lean into a shot from Gerrard and the ball struck his left arm in the area, but the referee waved play on.It was a clear, clear penalty, Rodgers said.Liverpool has now lost three games in eight days and Balotelli remains without a league goal. The striker was substituted in the 79th minute and didnt come close to scoring. Jameis Winston Jersey . At 11:06 of the first period, Neal struck Marchand with his knee when Marchand was down on the ice. Marchand remained in the game. Neal was assessed a kneeing penalty for his hit on Marchand. William Gholston Jersey . It was a day that saw England slump off a World Cup field once again battered and bruised. This time there was no red card to wonder about, no goalkeeping error or individual mistake. They were thoroughly beaten by something they have nothing of genuine world class ability. http://www.shoptheofficialbuccaneers.com/Elite-Justin-Evans-Buccaneers-Jersey/ . -- Thirty years ago, the Detroit Pistons beat the Denver Nuggets 186-184 in triple overtime, a game that remains the highest scoring in NBA history.GREEN BAY, Wis. -- After nearly a decade in the NFL, Aaron Rodgers doesnt need that many snaps in Packers preseason games. Theres not really much to prove for a quarterback who seems as sharp as ever in practice. But backup play is at a premium, especially following a 2013 season during which Rodgers was sidelined for nearly two months with a collarbone injury. Ten days into training camp, the Packers appear to have two competent candidates for a job that, realistically, few people in Green Bay would like to see either perform on a regular basis. The first test arrives Saturday when coach Mike McCarthys team travels to Tennessee to play the Titans in the preseason opener. "Every time you step on the field, its a huge opportunity, regardless of where you rank or where you are in the depth chart, it does not matter," quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt said Thursday. Well, there is one big exception. "Obviously, Aaron is a little bit different. But after that, guys are going out to compete and compete against the defence, put up their best performance. The chips fall where they may," Van Pelt said. The coaching staff hadnt decided by Thursday morning on how Flynn and Tolzien would split reps Saturday, though there should be plenty to go around. Rodgers doesnt expect a big workload. "I dont want to put anybody out, but I would think its going to be light work, as we usually do," Rodgers said. "The thing about this team, as you can tell, were a pretty deep team. We have a lot of athleticism and talent in different areas. One area especially is quarterback." Last year in training camp, Vince Young, Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman were among the candidates to back up Rodgers. By the first week of September, all three were cut. The Packers signed Seneca Wallace and Tolzien, then added Flynn in November after Rodgers and Wallace got hurt. Flynn went 2-2 in four late-season games in 2013, helping to settle a Packers offence struggling without offence. Wallace is now gone. But the offence appears to have benefited from having a full off-season of Flynn and Tolzien back in the system. Flynn also has the benefit of haviing been somewhat familiar with the Packers already after having been drafted by Green Bay in 2008 before returning as a free agent. Chris Godwin Jersey. Flynn is listed ahead of Tolzien on the unofficial team depth chart, though the order seems to be far from being permanently set. "Ive got to prove that I can still get the job done," Flynn said. "Ive got to prove that I deserve to be on this team." Still, offensive co-ordinator Tom Clements calls the process of getting the offence up to speed this preseason a "much smoother operation" with more experience behind Rodgers at quarterback. The backups, perhaps even more than Rodgers, are tasked with getting younger players with whom they may be playing with on the second and third teams up to speed. Tolzien has showed potential with his arm strength, and he performed admirably in two starts last season for someone thrown relatively quickly into the No. 1 quarterback job with just two months of preparation. According to Van Pelt, things are slowing down for Tolzien, which is a sign of a young player learning to grasp the system. Also Thursday: GOING UPSTAIRS: The depth chart also revealed a tweak in game day operations, with Clements going to the press box and Van Pelt staying on the sideline. Van Pelt moved over from coaching running backs to quarterbacks this year to replace Ben McAdoo, now the New York Giants offensive co-ordinator. With the staff change, McCarthy said he preferred the quarterbacks coach to stay on the field. THUMBS UP: Defensive co-ordinator Dom Capers likes how linebacker Clay Matthews has looked so far in training camp. One of the games top pass rushers when healthy, Matthews missed much of 2013 with a thumb injury that required two surgeries. Saturday would mark the debut of what the Packers hope will be an improved pass rush featuring Matthews and free agent acquisition Julius Peppers. SITTING OUT: Safety Morgan Burnett is among seven Packers -- but the only projected starter -- who will not travel to Tennessee. Burnett is recovering from an oblique injury, a week after missing a couple days with an ankle injury. McCarthy hopes Burnett will return next week.
