    Chelsea went down 2-1 at home to Liverpool on Friday after a screamer from Jordan Henderson won the game for the Reds.The visitors were by far the better team in the first half and were deservedly ahead on 17 minutes. Philippe Coutinho whipped an excellent cross into an unmarked Dejan Lovren and the Liverpool defender volleyed the ball home from close range.It was then 2-0 on 36 minutes when Reds skipper Henderson collected a poor clearance from Gary Cahill and sent the ball into the top corner of the net with a rasping drive from 25 yards.Antonio Contes side came out in the second half with purpose but struggled to create any immediate chances. However, they did grab one back just after the hour mark when Diego Costa slotted the ball home from close range to make it 2-1.Costa then had the chance to level the score minutes later, but he could only send his shot from point-blank range straight at keeper Simon Mignolet.Substitute Divock Origi nearly made it 3-1 to Liverpool soon after, but Thibaut Courtois pulled off a great save to stop the strikers header.Cesc Fabregas had one last chance to make it 2-2 with a late free-kick for the home side, but his tame effort went straight into the wall.The result takes Jurgen Klopps side level on points with Chelsea, who slip down to third.

In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves.NEW YORK -- His day done, Zoilo Almonte stood in a corner of the Yankees clubhouse and pulled out a cellphone. As his teammates showered up, got dressed and left, the rookie lingered in his dirt-smudged uniform, talking away. There was plenty for him to talk about. Almonte provided much-needed pop in his first major league start, homering and adding two singles Friday night that led New York over the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2. "It was a sign that things are starting to be where they should be," Almonte said through a translator. Almonte started in place of slumping left fielder Vernon Wells and quickly delivered, a day after getting a pinch single for his first hit. The 24-year-old was promoted from Triple-A this week, joining an injury-ravaged team thats had trouble scoring. "Im still a little nervous. Its not easy for me," he said. Almonte also showed off a strong arm in helping the Yankees win for the third time in 10 games. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he admired Almontes "pretty swing" a couple of years ago in spring training. Almonte pressed in camp this season, did well in the minors -- hitting .297 with six home runs and 36 RBIs -- and earned this opportunity. "Hes been on our radar for a while," Girardi said, later adding, "the time has arrived." David Phelps (5-4) beat Roberto Hernandez (4-8) and the Rays for the second time in a month. Tampa Bay was trying for its first three-game winning streak in June. Phelps gave up two runs in 5 2-3 innings. The Yankees used four relievers to finish it, with Mariano Rivera closing in a non-save situation. Before Almontes solo homer in the sixth inning made it 5-2, the Yankees played a lot of small ball. Robinson Cano hit a sacrifice fly in the first and Ichiro Suzuki got an RBI with a soft comebacker in the third. The next inning, Jayson Nix grounded into a bases-loaded double play for a 3-2 lead and David Adams followed with an infield hit for another run. "We werentt awful tonight," Rays manager Joe Maddon said.dddddddddddd "We just had some bad baseball luck on our side." The switch-hitting Almonte went 3 for 4, making him 4 for 6 in the majors. His home run sailed over the right-centre wall and was caught on the fly in the Yankees bullpen by coach Mike Harkey. Almonte said he would have his teammates sign the ball, then present it to his mother. Asked if hed ever had a better day, he said: "Today and when my son was born." Almonte got a hug from Cano, his fellow Dominican, when he reached the dugout. Cheered by festive fans on a pleasant first night of summer, Almonte emerged for a brief curtain call. Lyle Overbay singled home a run with two outs in the Yankees eighth. That gave Almonte one more at-bat, but he struck out. Ben Zobrist hit an RBI single in the Tampa Bay third. Luke Scott hit a single that made it 2-all in the fourth and the Rays went on to load the bases with one out. Matt Joyce hit a fly ball that Almonte caught on the run at medium depth, and his swift throw forced Scott to hold at third base. Desmond Jennings flied out to end the threat.
