London, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Liverpool will go in search of a rebound performance on Sunday when Brendan Rodgers men face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Reds have been exceptional this season, leaning heavily on the attacking prowess of Luis Suarez, who leads the Premiership with 19 goals scored, and Daniel Sturridge, who has nine tallies. But the holiday period of fixtures was always sure to test the clubs top four credentials as they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Boxing Day. The Reds outplayed City for large portions of Thursdays match and opened the scoring when Philippe Coutinho found the back of the net from a tight angle in the 24th minute. City responded with an equalizer seven minutes later when Vincent Kompany outmuscled Martin Skrtel on a corner kick and nodded the ball down into the bottom right corner, past the outstretched arm of Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. The winner came for City in first-half stoppage time when Alvaro Negredo slipped through on goal and hit one with the outside of his boot that Mignolet misplayed and it rolled into the net. Despite the loss, Rodgers praised his teams effort as they gave City their toughest test on home soil this season. "I was very proud of the players, I thought they were absolutely outstanding," Rodgers said. "They really took the game to a team that is a top, top side full of top European players. "Were disappointed not to have won the game, never mind losing the game. We showed great confidence and belief, scored a wonderful goal and could have had a few more. We have things to learn from the goals we conceded, which were disappointing. "I am very proud of the team. I was here at the Bayern Munich game when Bayern were outstanding, but apart from that every other team Manchester City have played here - really good sides as well - theyve scored a hatful of goals against. "Everybody walking away from the stadium would feel we at least deserved a point from tonight - and were disappointed we havent won." Chelsea is coming a 1-0 Boxing Day victory over Swansea City as an Eden Hazard goal in the 28th minute was enough to allow the Blues to extend their unbeaten streak in league play to three matches. Jose Mourinhos strike force of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, Willian and Samuel Etoo have struggled to score consistently, something that is beginning to wear on the Portuguese manager. "They kill me," Mourinho said. "Every game Im tired in the end. "At halftime we all should be relaxed with a comfortable result and we werent and the first thing that happens in the second half was probably the biggest chance of the game. "You dont score, you finish feeling you are going to concede. But the boys, they worked hard defensively and in the last part they looked comfortable in their control of the game." Also in the Premiership on Sunday, Everton will shoot for a bounce-back effort against Southampton at Goodison Park after suffering a shock 1-0 defeat to Sunderland on Thursday, while Newcastle United hopes to build on their best performance of the season -- a 5-1 destruction of nine-man Stoke City -- when they host Arsenal at St. James Park. In Sundays final fixture, Tottenham goes for a second win under manager Tim Sherwood when the club hosts Stoke City at White Hart Lane. On Saturday, West Ham United welcomes West Bromwich Albion to Upton Park following a 3-1 loss to Arsenal, while Aston Villa battles Swansea City at Villa Park.

With the NHL Draft coming up on June 27 and free agency opening on July 1, discussions between NHL general managers will be heating up over the month of June. Each day this month, TSN.ca will provide the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Good as gone? According to Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest, defenceman Dan Boyle is highly unlikely to sign with the New York Islanders. Strickland reports that Boyle, 37, is looking to sign with a contender. The Islanders traded a conditional 2015 fifth-round draft pick for the rights to the unrestricted free agent last week. If Boyle were to sign with the Islanders, the pick returning to the San Jose Sharks would improve to a fourth-round selection. Update: Arthur Staple of Newsday reports Boyle will let the Islanders know by the end of this week whether he is interested in contract negotiations with the team. Staying in Beantown? Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com reports the Boston Bruinns have started contract negotiations with veteran forward Jarome Iginla.dddddddddddd Iginla finished the regular season tied for the Bruins lead in goals and led the Bruins in playoff goals with five. According to Haggerty, the Bruins are pushing to re-sign to the 36-year-old to a contract very similar to his one-year 2013-2014 deal, which paid him $1.8 million. Price too high? David Staples of the Edmonton Journal considers the possibility of the Oilers acquiring either Nazem Kadri or Jake Gardiner from the Toronto Maple Leafs. Staples reports that the Oilers could have interest in both players to improve the team and mentions that both played under Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins with the Toronto Marlies. However, Staples believes the price for either player will be too high for the Oilers unless the team decides to make a "major effort" by offering Nail Yakupov, David Perron or their first round draft pick. cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys ' ' '
