Report: Burnley 1 Newcastle 0

first_imgBurnley 1 Newcastle United 0: Hendrick strikes as Dyche’s stock continues to rise Dom Farrell Last updated 2 years ago 05:56 10/31/17 JeffHendrick - cropped Getty Images Burnley moved up to seventh place in the Premier League after Jeff Hendrick scored the only goal to sink Newcastle, who drop to ninth. Jeff Hendrick hit a 74th-minute winner to ensure Sean Dyche celebrated five years in charge at Burnley with a 1-0 win over Newcastle United at Turf Moor.Dyche continues to be linked with the managerial vacancy at Everton and he again did his rising stock no harm as his side displayed the greater industry after half time to force a breakthrough in a game low on chances and quality.Hendrick enjoyed an early opening entirely out of keeping with what was to follow, while Ayoze Perez was unable to find the net on a rare occasion when his partnership in attack with Joselu functioned.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player After Hendrick’s strike, Newcastle substitute Isaac Hayden and Javier Manquillo went close as the away team belatedly rallied in stoppage time but Burnley held out to ensure their manager’s future will remain a hot topic.Burnley’s fourth win of the season moves them up to seventh in the table, with Newcastle dropping to ninth after having an unbeaten sequence of three matches broken.2 – Jeff Hendrick has scored two goals in his last four Premier League games, as many as he managed in his previous 35 games. Opener.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 30, 2017Hendrick’s first sight of goal arrived inside the first minute but dragged across the face after Ashley Barnes flicked on a free-kick pumped forward by goalkeeper Nick Pope.Newcastle were pinned back by their hosts during the opening exchanges before a menacing run from Christian Atsu won a 10th-minute corner. Burnley failed to clear and the Ghana winger prodded over.Rob Elliot was backpedalling and held on when Robbie Brady looked to catch him out from the left channel as the half-hour mark approached, while the Newcastle keeper was pleased to see Barnes’ header flash wide when a cross deflected up invitingly off DeAndre Yedlin.Atsu continued to look the most likely of Rafael Benitez’s attackers to find the breakthrough and darted forward to have a shot blocked by Matt Lowton five minutes before half time.Pope was the first goalkeeper to be genuinely extended after 50 minutes when Perez latched on to Joselu’s clever lay-off and drew a fine stop away to the Burnley man’s left.The game settled into a pattern of Burnley forcing the issue and Newcastle looking to harness pace on the break by the time the final 20 minutes arrived and Dyche’s men were rewarded for diligently probing their resolute opponents.Jack Cork orchestrated a sweeping attack through midfield, only to be denied sharply by Elliot. Johann Gudmundsson was alive to the possibilities from the loose ball and whipped a brilliant cross to the far post, where Hendrick took a touch and slammed home.Joselu arrowed a drive through James Tarkowski’s legs and wide at the other end, with the Clarets enduring further tense moments in stoppage time when Pope made a fine save to keep out Hayden’s drive and Manquillo glanced over from the subsequent set-piece.Barnes almost made it two before those close shaves as the hosts secured a valuable victory, although the Burnley faithful will once again cast anxious glances towards events at Goodison Park when their celebrations have died down.Key Opta Stats:- Burnley have won four of their last five home league matches against Newcastle (D1).- Newcastle have now lost their last 12 away league matches played on a Monday, a run that stretches back to December 2012.- Hendrick’s two Premier League goals this season have earned the Clarets four points – only Raheem Sterling’s goals (for Manchester City) have earned more points in the Premier League this season (five).- Newcastle have conceded fewer first-half goals than any other Premier League side this season (one) and have only conceded one first-half goal in their last 13 Premier League games.- The Magpies have not won any of their last 20 Premier League matches when they have conceded first (D5 L15). read morelast_img read more

BoC rate hike means higher costs for variablerate loans but better returns

first_imgTORONTO – The Bank of Canada’s latest interest rate hike means higher borrowing costs for consumers with variable-rate mortgages, loans or lines of credit, but it is also good news for savers and future homeowners.The decision to increase its benchmark interest rate to 1.5 per cent on Wednesday prompted all of Canada’s Big Six banks to raise their prime rates, thereby passing the rate increase along to their customers.Those with variable-rate mortgages will now face higher interest payments, a concern for many Canadian households that are already saddled with hefty debt loads, said Samantha Brookes, chief executive officer of brokerage Mortgages of Canada.“Increasing rates just really limit how much they have available to them on a monthly basis,” she said.The prime lending rate is the rate that banks use to set interest rates for variable-rate mortgages and other loans. Wednesday’s rate hike was the central bank’s first interest rate move in six months and lifted the trend-setting rate to 1.5 per cent, up from 1.25 per cent. It also marked the bank’s fourth increase over the last 12 months and the first time the rate has been this high since December 2008.The central bank’s move was driven by the strength of Canada’s economy, which it expects will remain resilient despite headwinds from trade tensions with the U.S.After the central bank’s announcement, Royal Bank of Canada, TD Canada Trust, Bank of Montreal, Bank of Nova Scotia, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and National Bank all said they will increase their prime rate by a quarter of a percentage point to 3.70 per cent, effective Thursday.The rates had previously been set at 3.45 per cent.The increase raises the cost of borrowing for customers with variable-rate loans, but people with money socked away in savings accounts and guaranteed investment certificates will benefit, said Scott Hannah, the president and chief executive of the Credit Counselling Society.“It helps seniors who depend on interest income to help fund their retirement expenses,” he said. “And the rate hikes are keeping Canadians focused on the need to curb their appetite for debt and pay down the debt they have.”Higher interest rates, along with stricter mortgage rules, have also helped to cool down the country’s real estate markets, helping future homeowners, Hannah said. It’s unwelcome news, however, for those looking to renew their mortgages this year, he added.Overall, the impact of the latest rate hike will be modest for consumers, said Meny Grauman, an analyst with Cormark Securities Inc. The rate hike is in reaction to a healthy Canadian economy, which is beneficial, he added.Rates are slowly on the way up, but remain relatively low historically, Grauman added.“On balance, it’s still probably a positive for the average household, for the average business.”last_img read more

NITI Aayog VCs remarks against Congs NYAY violated poll code EC

first_imgNew Delhi: The Election Commission Friday expressed “displeasure” over NITI Aayog vice chairman Rajiv Kumar’s remarks against the Congress’ proposed minimum income scheme ‘NYAY’ and said the comments violated the model code of conduct norms. In a communication sent to Kumar, the EC asked him to be cautious in future while making statements. The EC asserted that the public servants should not only be impartial in their conduct but also in their public utterances, “which was found wanting in the instant case”. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ On March 27, the poll panel had sought Kumar’s response on his remarks in which he had attacked the Congress over its minimum income guarantee promise. The EC had felt that since Kumar is a bureaucrat, his remarks were prima facie violative of the model code. Kumar is learnt to have told the Election Commission that he spoke against Congress’s Nyuntam Aay Yojna (Nyay) scheme as an economist and not as part of the policy body. The commission, in its letter, said that it considered his reply and has not found it to be satisfactory. At a press conference here on March 25, Congress president Rahul Gandhi announced that 20 per cent families belonging to the poorest category will be given Rs 72,000 each annually as minimum income if his party comes to power.last_img read more
