12 Out: Marko Arnautovic (Stoke) – £6.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – In contrast, Stoke are a team who are currently on a far less impressive streak. The Potters have lost their last three matches 3-0 and main man Marko Arnautovic is still yet to score in 2016. In: Michail Antonio (West Ham) – £5.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Following his sensational volley against Liverpool in the FA Cup this week, nobody can deny that Antonio is currently on very good form. Perhaps you should strike while the IRON is hot and pick up this cheap midfielder immediately. In: Jesse Lingard (Manchester United) – £4.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Jesse Lingard is a bargain of a midfielder who is currently forcing his way into Louis van Gaals first team. With a price tag of just £4.3m, and two goals in two games, Lingard should be forcing his way on to your fantasy teams radar too. 12 Out: Odion Ighalo (Watford) – £6.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – After being kept at bay by the defences of both Chelsea and Tottenham, Ighalo has now gone two games without a goal. Watford dont have the most straightforward upcoming set of fixtures either, so this might be the ideal time for you to free up one of your striker spots. Out: Bacary Sagna (Manchester City) – £5.7m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Citys first choice right-back Pablo Zabaleta returned from injury and took back his place in the starting XI last week. Unless the Argentinian suffers a recurrence, Bacary Sagna wont be a guaranteed starter for City again this season. In: Benik Afobe (Bournemouth) – £6.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – It would be a risk, but if you were to replace Ighalo with Afobe this week, you could be heavily rewarded. Afobe has scored in three of his last four for the Cherries and will be looking to build on that record in his next few fixtures against Stoke, Watford and Southampton. 12 12 In: Virgil van Dijk (Southampton) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – With FIVE consecutive clean sheets, Southampton defenders are hot property right now. The Saints face Swansea, Chelsea and Bournemouth in their next three fixtures and so have a good opportunity to continue their impressive streak. 12 Out: Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) – £9.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Its now been four games without a goal for Arsenals Olivier Giroud. With the amount of prolific strikers currently scoring goals from left right and centre across the Premier League you simply cannot justify having this £9m Frenchman in your front line! Sorry Arsenal fans! 12 Out: David Silva (Manchester City) – £9.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – It is currently 50/50 as to whether David Silva will start against Tottenham on Sunday and, seeing as City dont have a match in the next gameweek anyway, this may be a gamble that isnt worth taking. 12 Out: Kurt Zouma (Chelsea) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Zouma will be out for the season after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Manchester United last Sunday. Its time to get him out of your teams. 12 12 12 After smashing Manchester City in their own back yard last weekend, Leicester City are now favourites to win the Premier League title.So, we can either dwell on this for eight hours and talk about how ‘we never thought we’d be saying these words’ or we can just accept this ridiculous new reality and get on with adjusting our Fantasy Premier League teams accordingly.As you’d expect Robert Huth’s heading heroics have earned him a mention this week, while Jamie Vardy also gets a recommendation despite getting just two points last week.Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might need to make this week by clicking the right arrow above… In: Jamie Vardy (Leicester) – £7.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Ludicrously, Jamie Vardy didnt manage to get in on any of the goalscoring action at the Etihad last week. You still wouldnt bet against him to net at the Emirates on Sunday though, would you? In: Robert Huth (Leicester) – £4.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The newly crowned King of the Etihad is a must pick for your fantasy teams this week. Costing only £4.5m, Huth is a bargain and has some convenient home fixtures against Norwich and Villa coming up after this weeks trip to the Emirates. 12 12
The charred remains of a third victim was recovered from the wreckage at 6:10 p.m., said Kelly Yagerlener, a county Coroner investigator. None of the victims have been identified. Firefighters could find more bodies as they explored the charred tunnel Saturday afternoon, said Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Ron Haralson. The pileup in the southbound truck tunnel of Interstate 5 began about 11 p.m. Friday when two big rigs collided on the rain-slicked highway about 30 miles north of downtown Los Angeles. As crashes continued throughout the tunnel, which is about an eighth of a mile long, five tractor-trailers burst into flames and the fire quickly spread. The California Highway Patrol said at an afternoon news conference about a half dozen trucks and several passenger cars were involved — firefighters earlier estimated at least 15 big rigs were part of the pile up. Authorities said they were working to reopen the I-5’s southbound lanes Tuesday morning. The charred skeletons of at least a half-dozen big rigs were peeking out of the tunnel’s south end. At least one of them was carrying produce, and a smoldering load of cabbage was scattered across the pavement. A pile of scorched truck debris was protruding from a tunnel wall. Haralson said state transportation workers had brought in heavy equipment and were helping firefighters haul away the blackened, twisted debris. As the fire spread Friday night, flames shot out of both ends of the tunnel, rising as high as 100 feet into the air, according to firefighters on the scene. The intense heat caused concrete to crack and melt, sending chucks falling onto a road below throughout the night. Firefighters worried that the damage could cause parts of the tunnel to collapse, particularly if cars were allowed back onto the road that runs above it. By Saturday afternoon, all of the flames appeared to have been extinguished as firefighters went inside. The canyon surrounding the tunnel remained filled with thick, acrid smoke, however, and until they examined the wreckage, firefighters said, they wouldn’t be able to tell if any of the trucks had been hauling toxic chemicals. Shortly after the crash, 20 people managed to escape the fiery tunnel on foot, including the 10 injured. Eight were reported to have minor injuries and two had moderate injuries. All were taken to hospitals where they were treated, mainly for burns and neck and back injuries. Although the tunnel is designed to carry truck traffic through a mountain pass area, fire Inspector Jason Hurd said passenger cars may also use it, raising concerns that some may have been trapped inside. “We’re going to have to do a very methodical search,” said Deputy Chief John Tripp said. “There could be unfortunately more people that were not able to escape.” Hurd couldn’t say when authorities might be able to reopen the section of freeway. “It could be another day, it could be days, it could be weeks,” he told The Associated Press. Interstate 5 is a key West Coast route running from Mexico to Canada, as well as a major commuter link connecting Los Angeles to its northern suburbs. There are likely to be massive traffic jams in the area if it is still closed when people return to work on Monday. The section of freeway was shut down twice before, by earthquakes in 1971 and 1994, when large overpasses over canyons collapsed. The worst of the temblors, the Northridge quake of 1994, also damaged another nearby highway, snarling traffic throughout the area. — CHP and other officials recommend the following driving alternates: HEADING NORTH: — Take the Golden State Freeway (5) north and exit Roxford St. Turn left at the dead end and then turn right on Sierra Highway. It takes you to the Old Road and go north to Calgrove Boulevard. — Drive the Antelope Valley (14) Freeway north to California Highway 126 to Lyons Avenue. HEADING SOUTH FROM BAKERSFIELD: — Take the 5 Freeway to Highway 126 west to the 23 (Grimes Canyon Road) south to the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway. This route can be done in reverse to go north. HEADING NORTH OR SOUTH: — use the Ventura Freeway (101) — Sierra Highway HEADING NORTH OUT OF SANTA CLARITA: — Use the 14 Freeway out to Highway 58 to the Tehachapi Pass. TRAINS: — Commuters can also take the Antelope Valley line of the Metrolink, which has three stops in Santa Clarita.

SANTA CLARITA — Firefighters today began hauling the mangled, blackened debris of at least a half-dozen big-rig trucks out of a freeway tunnel where at least three people were killed and 10 injured in a fiery, pileup that shut down the major interstate highway north of Los Angeles. The crash late Friday night involved an estimated 15 big rigs, possibly one or more passenger cars and sent people fleeing for their lives from the flaming tunnel. At least five of the trucks burst into flames, and the fire spread to the others. “It looked like a bomb went off,” said Los Angeles County firefighter Scott Clark, one of about 300 firefighters who battled the blaze throughout the night. The bodies of two crash victims were found in the tunnel Saturday, said California Highway Patrol Officer David Porter. He couldn’t immediately say if one of them was a trucker listed as missing.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Eli Manning passed for 303 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Giants to their fourth straight win, 31-10, over the hapless Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. The Giants (4-2) took control after a wild first quarter in which the teams combined for 24 points. New York scored the final 24 points to send the Michael Vick-less Falcons tumbling to their fifth loss in six games. “I felt good throwing the ball,” said Manning, who completed 12 straight at one point in the first half. “I was getting opportunities in a timely fashion. I was spreading the ball around.” The Giants have bounced back after starting the season with losses to Dallas and Green Bay, but they must be mindful of the collapse that knocked them out of the playoffs a year ago. A five-game winning streak had the Giants at 6-2 midway through the 2006 season, but they managed just two more wins the rest of the way. Maybe that’s why Coach Tom Coughlin didn’t sound all that enthused. “I thought sometimes we did play well offensively, and then sometimes we did not,” he said. “There were some issues.” Manning threw two touchdown passes and set up another New York TD with three straight completions, which lessened the damage of two interceptions and losing a fumble when John Abraham knocked the ball loose just before the quarterback’s arm went forward. It also helped to be playing the Falcons, who are averaging just 13.2 points a game. “They are a good defensive football team,” Coughlin said. “They have some problems, obviously, on the offensive side of the ball.” Manning was 27-for-39 passing and put up his highest total since a 312-yard performance against the Cowboys in Week 1. He hooked up with Amani Toomer on a 5-yard scoring pass in the back-and-forth opening period. Before the half was done, Manning went deep for a 43-yard touchdown to Plaxico Burress that gave the Giants a 21-10 lead. Playing behind a patched-up line, Joey Harrington was sacked four times, had several passes deflected at the line and did plenty of scrambling to avoid New York’s fearsome pass rush, which had tied a league record with 12 sacks of Philadelphia’s Donovan McNabb two weeks earlier. The Falcons, who were starting two new tackles because of injuries, actually did a better-than-expected job keeping Osi Umenyiora, Michael Strahan & Co. away from Harrington. That was largely because Harrington went with quick drops and short passes, not leaving much time to open up the passing game. “Eventually, they started to dominate the line of scrimmage,” Petrino said. “We couldn’t sustain the run and execute the passing game.” After yanking Harrington the previous week in favor of Byron Leftwich, the Falcons didn’t have a backup plan against the Giants. Leftwich, who signed with Atlanta after Week 2, was designated as the third quarterback because of a sore ankle, and backup Chris Redman has not played in a game since 2003. “We decided to stick with Joey and see what he could do,” Petrino said. Not much was the answer. Harrington was 18-for-39 passing for 209 yards, putting him in danger of losing another starting job after he was already deposed in Detroit and Miami.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

1 The draw presents Jurgen Klopp with a romantic reunion with his old club Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he is happy to be drawn against former club and Europa League favourites Borussia Dortmund – less than 24 hours after saying he would be “silly” to want them in the quarter-final draw.The two sides were pitted together in the biggest tie of the round which presents the German with a romantic reunion with the side he left last summer.“I am really happy with the draw,” Klopp told the club’s official website.“Yesterday I said why should I wish [to get] the strongest team in the tournament, but obviously if you want to win the Europa League, and when you are in the quarter-final, then you have to beat the strongest teams.“It is better to play against them in two games than in only one game.“I am really happy to introduce my new team to Dortmund. I am really happy to show the boys this wonderful stadium and a great city. It’s a story only football can write.”The draw, which will see Liverpool travel to the Westfalenstadion on April 7 with the return leg a week later, sent social media into meltdown and the focus will only increase as the match approaches.It is one of the ties of the tournament so far and Klopp, whose side dispatched arch-rivals Manchester United in another mouth-watering encounter in the last 16, believes it proves the strength of the competition.However, he is determined to try to prevent his return to Dortmund overshadowing preparations.“Two of the biggest clubs in the world meet each other in the Europa League, so everybody who thought a few months ago maybe it’s not that interesting a tournament, hopefully they’ve switched their minds in the last few weeks,” he said.“It’s football at its best and how it should be.“I still have three season tickets but my son uses them and is very often in the stadium – when he’s not in Liverpool, of course – so, I am looking forward to going there.“I loved this place, a few of the best things in my life happened there, so of course I am looking forward to it.“But on the other side, I hate the hype around my person in these matches.“I know about the business and all the circumstances but I don’t like it to be honest.“I will do what I have to do (in terms of pre-match media duties) and then we will see.“During the game all the focus [should be] on these guys and then if somebody wants to talk to me after the game I am available then.”
