Anthony Martial scored the winner as Manchester United beat Everton 1-0 at Old Trafford to keep their top four hopes alive. Chris Baker Jersey . The striker netted Uniteds 1,000th home Premier League goal in the second half to lift his side up to fifth in the table - just a point behind rivals Manchester City in fourth.It means Louis van Gaals side are left with a real opportunity to qualify for next seasons Champions League, with seven games left to play. Juan Mata of Manchester United in action with Gerard Deulofeu of Everton Everton, however, are left languishing in 12th in the Premier League after suffering their 10th defeat of a hugely frustrating campaign.The atmosphere was electric at Old Trafford following an emotional pre-match tribute to Sir Bobby Charlton - the club renaming the south stand in his honour - and the home fans were nearly given even more to shout about after 17 minutes when Martial worked his way into the box before drilling a shot just wide of the far post.Everton, who have done most of their good work this season on the road, were also showing plenty of attacking intent themselves in the early stages. Gerard Deulofeu, starting as one of two changes made by Roberto Martinez, was causing plenty of problems down the right, while United goalkeeper David de Gea had to be alert on 26 minutes to rush out of his area and clear the ball away from Romelu Lukaku - who had got in behind following a slip by Chris Smalling. Deulofeu is blocked by Marcos Rojo of Manchester United Martinez also recalled John Stones to the starting line-up, and after 37 minutes the England defender brilliantly intervened to prevent Martial from having a clear sight of goal, perfectly timing a sliding tackle just inside the area to take the ball away from the United striker. Van Gaal had named an unchanged line-up from the side that won the Manchester derby a fortnight ago, but he was forced into a change at half-time when Marcos Rojo picked up a knock, the Dutch boss putting on Timothy Fosu-Mensah in his place. Anthony Martial netted Manchester Uniteds 1000th home Premier League goal in their 1-0 win over Everton And Everton nearly took advantage of Uniteds defensive reshuffle after 49 minutes, but Daley Blind eventually did superbly to get a block on Lukakus close-range effort and steer it just wide.Fosu-Mensah would, however, make the difference at the other end for Uniteds opener after 54 minutes. On the charge the youngster picked up Marcus Rashfords flicked backheel, got into the box and played the ball across for Martial to finish at the far post. Manchester United fans show their appreciation as Sir Bobby Charlton is honoured at Old Trafford Everton nearly levelled immediately as Phil Jagielka crashed a header from a corner onto the crossbar, before Jesse Lingard went close to doubling Uniteds lead, but couldnt quite get a toe onto Juan Matas low cross as he slid in.Martinez replaced Deulofeu with Kevin Mirallas with just under half an hour to go, but it took until the 83rd minute for Everton to test De Gea for the first time. Jagielka again was causing problems from a corner as he forced Uniteds goalkeeper into a point-blank save, before the impressive Fosu-Mensah intervened to keep Seamus Colemans low cross from reaching Mirallas, who would have had a simple tap-in in the six-yard box to steal a point.Player ratingsManchester United: De Gea (7), Rojo (5), Smalling (6), Blind (7), Darmian (6), Carrick (6), Schneiderlin (6), Lingard (6), Mata (6), Martial (7), Rashford (6)Subs: Fosu-Mensah (7), Herrera (5), Valencia (n/a)Everton: Robles (4), Coleman (6), Jagielka (6), Stones (6), Baines (6), McCarthy (6), Cleverley (6), Lennon (5), Barkley (6), Deulofeu (6), Lukaku (6)Subs: Mirallas (5), Niasse (n/a)Man of the match: Anthony Martial Andrew Billings Bengals Jersey . - Jayden Hart scored once and set up two more as the Prince Albert Raiders downed the host Red Deer Rebels 5-3 on Tuesday to clinch the final Western Hockey League playoff berth.

Bring on Freddy Garcia. The well-travelled 36-year-old right-hander earned his second NL victory since 2007, and his first since he joined the Atlanta Braves last month, pitching six innings to help beat Miami 6-1 Thursday.It’s hard – if not impossible – to get a read on a team after just two games, but the Nashville Predators have looked impressively different in their debut games under new coach Peter Laviolette. Laviolette’s promised to bring more offense to a Nashville organization that’s seen their goal-scoring dry up over the years, but early signs suggest that the team’s just going to be more aggressive in every phase of the game – not just in terms of getting pucks on net. This, of course, gets into the many different ways a team can improve on their Corsi%. One example I like to give is the stark contrast between that of Los Angeles and Chicago; two virtually equal teams at dominating control of play at five-on-five, but two teams that go about their business in entirely different manners. Los Angeles is a dump-and-chase heavy team – they prefer to sacrifice a bit of lethality when attacking in exchange for being able to set-up with more structure when defending the neutral zone. Chicago’s a polar opposite – nearly every possession through the neutral zone sees the Blackhawks carrying in with control, and it’s reflected in their ability to pile up the shot-attempts and goals year after year. The first two games Nashville’s played are interesting in the sense that they seem to have really dialed up the force and frequency in which they harass puck-carriers coming through the neutral zone. In years past, I’ve felt as though Nashville played a more passive game, which let super-talented teams dictate the run of play. Nashville’s first ‘real’ test came against a Dallas team that seems to be something of a lock to reach the post-season. The Stars attack in waves through the neutral zone, and their top-nine -- much like Chicago – seem to want to be in control of the puck as they attack the opposition. Sometimes, this is easier said than done. The Predators put on a masterful performance against Dallas. Move away from the 4-1 score line and consider the following: Dallas, a team that averaged 24 even-strength shots per game last year, had just 15 against Nashville. A large part of this was Dallas’ inability to generate basically anything away from the Seguin line, which produced seven of those fifteen shots. Nashville made a concerted effort to squeeze out passing lanes and attack puck-carriers as they traversed through the neutral zone. Their work against Dallas’ vaunted second line – Jason Spezza, Ales Hemsky, and Erik Cole – was particularly magnificent. Consider the below table, which shows the performance of the Jason Spezza line as they came through the neutral zone against Nashville, which shows just how rare it was for the Stars second line to enter the Nashville zone under control with the puck. Stars Stopped in Neutral Zone NZ Dump/Chase NZ Controlled Entry NZ Failure/Turnover Spezza Line On-Ice 17.9% (5/28) 17. Andrew Billings Jersey. 9% (5/28) 64.2% (18/28) NZ = Neutral Zone Knowing what we know about the importance of entering the zone with control of the puck as it pertains to shot-attempt generation through the seminal work of Eric Tulsky, and knowing what we know about the stylistic play of guys like Ales Hemsky, Jason Spezza, and Erik Cole, their success will directly correlate with their ability to enter the offensive zone with control. In games they aren’t able to do this – like Saturday night’s game against Nashville – they’ll struggle to have an impact. Saturday’s poor neutral zone performance predictably manifested in their ability to generate shot-attempts. Here are the CorsiFor rates (per 60) for each of the players, with a three-year comparable to show how decisive the run of play really was. Stars Shot Down Per 60 CorsiFor vs. Nashville Per 60 CorsiFor 2011-14 Jason Spezza 21.65 63.64 Ales Hemsky 18.57 53.64 Erik Cole 17.08 54.92 Now, this sort of volatility is going to happen when isolating for single games (or even a series of games) with any player or group of players around the league, but it does speak to how strong Nashville was at bottling up Dallas’ second line – a second line that spent most of the night either defending the Nashville rush, or futilely trying to gain the opposition’s zone with possession of the puck. In terms of accreditation for slowing down the Dallas trio, the forward group seemed to do it by committee. Defensively, it was primarily the Seth Jones and Anton Volchenkov pairing, which saw almost 60% of their shifts against the Spezza group. A job well done. Going forward, the key for Dallas will not be to abandon its strategy, but to really dig into what makes the attacking styles of Chicago (and, San Jose for that matter) so effective. Part of that is the forward group doesn’t have to do so much of the leg-work – there are many able bodies on the back-end that can spring forwards as they move north, and it makes defending the controlled rush just exponentially harder. In Dallas, there are questions about the blueline, and how far they can take Lindy Ruff’s team. I think figuring out the three best puck-moving combinations could be vital going forward. Unfortunately, it’ll take time – there are a lot of young bodies back there. As an aside, I don’t think Dallas is going to have much trouble maneuvering through the regular season. The questions are about improvement, not about whether or not they’re a legitimate contender. On the other side – well, something to watch for Nashville going forward, certainly. I think reasonable assessments can be made about newly-coached teams after twenty games or so. We’ll revisit then, and see if Nashville is sustaining their success.
