LONDON -- Back at the scene of last seasons Premier League title collapse, Tottenham will be picking up the pieces from a fresh disintegration.After spending five years trying to muscle its way back into the Champions League, Tottenham is timidly exiting from the group stage, stalling the progress of an ambitious manager and his relatively young squad.And for the first time since taking charge of Tottenham in 2014, Mauricio Pochettinos decision-making is coming under scrutiny ahead of Saturdays trip across London to Chelsea.Playing in the European Cup for only the third time in its history was the consolation for Tottenham after missing out on a first English title since 1961.Pochettinos side had been pushing Leicester in the title race until a bad-tempered meltdown at Chelsea in May. A two-goal lead was surrendered and a 2-2 draw handed Leicester the trophy. Tottenham never recovered, losing its last two games to tumble to third behind Arsenal.As damaging as the loss was, Tottenham failed to use the experience to strengthen its team significantly in the transfer window.Misfiring striker Vincent Janssen, signed in July from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, has not been an adequate backup to Harry Kane. Moussa Sissoko, a 30 million pound (then about $40 million) signing, has not looked to be much of an improvement on Nacer Chadli, who was sold to West Bromwich Albion.While Tottenham is the only unbeaten team in Englands four professional leagues, the team is fifth in the Premier League while Chelsea leads the way.Tottenhams failure to kill off games has been damaging, drawing half of the 12 league matches so far. But there was a spirited comeback against West Ham. A 3-2 victory, secured through Kanes two late goals, masked the deficiencies earlier in the derby as Tottenham counts the cost of injuries to defender Toby Alderweireld and winger Erik Lamela.Losing at Monaco on Tuesday left Tottenham with only one win from five Champions League games, including two losses at its temporary European home at Wembley Stadium.Leaving defenders Jan Vertonghen and Kyle Walker, and midfielder Christian Eriksen on the bench at Monaco showed that Pochettino was already looking ahead to the Chelsea game with his rotation.Maybe we are not ready to manage Premier League and Champions League campaigns at the same time, but we need to question ourselves about that, said goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, one truly world-class player in the Tottenham team.Chelsea is helped by having a season out of Europe at the start of Antonio Contes reign.They have time to train and develop their philosophy, Pochettino said. They are, not only in England but in Europe, the team most in form today.Here are some things to know about this weekends Premier League matches:--WINLESS IN 5A run of five straight losses has sent Crystal Palace sliding to a point above the relegation zone.Saturdays opposition is faring little better. Bob Bradley is winless in five games since taking charge of Swansea, which has fallen to last place while collecting two points.The players know me by now, Bradley said. I will stand by them and stick up for them, but they also know I expect a lot.---SEASON OF CONTRASTSLeicester is flying high in the Champions League as the only English team at the top of its group. Back in the domestic league, its a different picture.The defending champions are two points above the relegation zone after losing their last two games, only a place and a point above next opponent Middlesbrough.Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater will start a three-game suspension after accepting an English Football Association charge of violent conduct for an elbow on Watford midfielder Valon Behrami in last weekends game. It leaves Andy King and Daniel Amartey as Leicesters only fit senior central midfielders. Wholesale Royals Jerseys . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Ryon Healy was so focused on getting to second base the Athletics rookie didnt realize he had hit a game-ending home run until he looked up and saw third base coach Ron Washington celebrating.After that, the Oakland third baseman slowed up his trot to allow the players in the bullpen to join the fun.Healy homered with two outs in the ninth inning two batters after Jake Smolinski tied it with a two-run homer, and the As rallied past the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Saturday night.It was definitely a special feeling, one I havent had a ton in my life, Healy said. I dont think theres anything more fun than walk-off wins in baseball. The fact weve been able to have so many in my short eight-day career just makes winning that much better.The As have notched three walk-off wins in their last five games to improve to 6-3 since the All-Star break.Oaklands good fortunes happen to coincide with Healys call-up from the minors on July 15.Coincidence or not, manager Bob Melvin couldnt be happier.He has not been afraid of any situation that hes been in, Melvin said. He went up there with fire in his eyes.Both home runs by the As in the ninth came off closer Alex Colome, who had recorded 21 consecutive saves before giving up three runs to the As.Completely uncharacteristic of him because hes been outstanding for us all year, manager Kevin Cash said.

Smyly allowed one run over six innings and left with a one-run lead. It really showed a lot about him to give up the early run and not cave there, Cash said. He kept battling and making some really good pitches.OUCH OSWALDOTampa Bay right fielder Oswaldo Arcia had two hits and an RBI before leaving with a mild strain in his right elbow after striking out swinging in the seventh.
