Psyche is a fragile thing in football; all it takes is a few things to go wrong for the ship to sink completely. This was the case for Jose Mourinhos Chelsea last season, as the Portuguese manager watched his side sink as far down the table as 16th before getting sacked in December.Fast forward, and Antonio Contes boys are aiming to make it four wins from four on Sunday when they travel to Liberty Stadium to battle Swansea City.The Blues (3-0-0), close to unchanged from the side that finished 10th last season aside from nabbing NGolo Kante away from Champions Leicester City, have responded to a new voice in the dressing room and more resemble the team that won the league title in 2014-15.After a pair of 2-1 wins to open the season, Contes club added some style in a 3-0 destruction of Burnley prior to the international break. Eden Hazard, who managed only four goals last season in league play, opened the scoring after nine minutes while Willian and Victor Moses also contributed goals.Conte was happy with his sides ability to keep a clean sheet and maintain some defencive consistency.Im pleased to score the goals, its always important to score one more goal than your opponent, but to keep a clean sheet is also important for the confidence of the whole team, the Italian manager said. When you keep a clean sheet, the whole team works very well, not only the defenders. When we concede a goal, all of the team concedes a goal.If I am able to choose our way to defend it is to go forward and not behind. When you stay too much behind, there is the long ball and anything can happen. We are improving this aspect.After opening the campaign with an impressive 1-0 victory over Burnley away from home, Swansea City (1-0-2) are aiming to find their way back to the winning track after two straight setbacks.The Swans performed admirably at Leicester prior to the break, but found themselves behind by a pair of strikes after 52 minutes as Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan fired the hosts in front. New signing Leroy Fer pulled one back for the Swans with 10 minutes to play, but an equalizer proved elusive.Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin told his club it is time to deliver the goods opposite Chelsea.I think we have a good team, Guidolin declared. I am happy with my players and I think its important to look to the future with optimism. But its time to do well on the pitch, because I was disappointed with the last game at Leicester.We prepared another game before Leicester, but they played very well in the first half and they deserved to win. We have to change this because the Premier League is very hard, but with my players I am confident.Guidolin has been pleased with his teams training ahead of this fixture.In the last two weeks we have worked hard to prepare for the game against Chelsea, he said. We have not had a lot of players (because of the international break), but I think we have worked well.Swansea beat and an undermanned Chelsea club the last time they met in April, but in order to begin ascending up the table, defender Angel Rangel believes they need to play better at home.I think now more than ever the Liberty has to be a fortress for us, Rangel said. We didnt win our first home game so that means the second is more important.Its against one of the big clubs, but we did beat Chelsea last season. I know it is not the same Chelsea now, but we are at home and we have to rely on our home form. We need to show the fans and the Premier League that the Liberty is a difficult place to come. We have lost that a bit but I am sure we will show that again. Yeezy Femme Adidas . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. Adidas Superstar 80s f / Noir . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010.

Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1. Adidas Nmd Xr1 Bleu .

Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. MINNEAPOLIS -- Joe Mauer raced home with the winning run when Max Keplers comebacker ricocheted off pitcher Joe Colons glove in the 11th inning to give the Minnesota Twins a rain-delayed 5-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.Colon (0-1) reached behind his back to try to glove the bouncer and knocked it down. His throw home beat Mauer, but catcher Yan Gomes couldnt handle it and was charged with an error on the play.Brian Dozier drove in two runs for the Twins, and Trevor May (1-2) pitched the 11th to earn the win.Carlos Santana had three hits to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games and drove in two runs for the Indians.The game was delayed by rain in the top of the 11th for 2 hours, 5 minutes.Santanas error at first base in the seventh inning allowed one run to score, and Minnesota tied it on a single up the middle by Dozier.In his second career appearance, Colon walked Mauer, gave up a long double to Miguel Sano and then intentionally walked Dozier before Keplers comebacker ended a long night.Trevor Bauer gave up four runs -- three earned -- and seven hits with six strikeouts and three walks in six innings for Cleveland.Tyler Duffey allowed four runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings with three walks and two strikeouts for the Twins.Minnesota had struggled with runners in scoring position all night, twice failing to score with runners on second and third and nobody out.The rain started to fall in the ninth inning and really picked up in the 11th, so crew chief Larry Vanover called for the tarp with two outs in the top of the inning.SCARY MOMENTThe game stopped for several minutes in the seventh when a young boy sitting just to the right of the Indians dugout was hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of Mike Napoli.The ball caromed high in the air a full section over and ballpark personnel rushed to the boys side. Napoli and the rest of the players on the field looked on with concern, but the boy appeared to be in decent shape as the man he was with carried him up the aisle and to the concourse.The boy grabbed his haat and put it back on his head and appeared to be alert and looking around as they exited the seating area.ddddddddddddEXORCISING THE DEMONSGomes has gone hitless in his last eight games and is in a 1-for-33 slump. After going 0 for 4 on Friday night, the Indians conducted an exorcism in the clubhouse, complete with the sacrificing of a store-bought chicken in an effort to get him back on track.The Baseball Gods and Jobu have been very unkind to one of our own, Jason Kipnis wrote on Instagram before posting three videos of the ceremony. So we offer up this ceremony and these sacrifices as peace offerings and gifts! May the hits be plenty!! Roll Tribe!!!Gomes did not start on Saturday, but went 0 for 2 after being inserted as a pinch-hitter in the ninth.Manager Terry Francona laughed out loud when asked about it before the game.I thought that was probably clubhouse humor to the nth degree, Francona said. Its probably stuff that you dont do in the normal workplace, but I thought it was good. It showed Gomer how much they care about him, which is good.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: After playing on Friday night in his rehab assignment, OF Michael Brantley was given the day off on Saturday. Francona said Brantley wanted to play as he works his way back from a right shoulder injury, but the training staff didnt want to push it too early. He is expected to play again on Sunday. ... RHP Zach McAllister, on the DL since July 7 with right hip discomfort, will start a rehab assignment on Monday.Twins: CF Byron Buxton was in the lineup for a second straight day and manager Paul Molitor said the knee injury that occurred when Buxton crashed into the wall three games before the All-Star break is behind him now.UP NEXTTwins RHP Kyle Gibson (2-5, 5.02 ERA) will face Indians RHP Josh Tomlin (9-2, 3.51) in the series finale.
