LONDON---Arsenal began its FA
Cup defense with a 3-1 comeback
victory against Sunderland and
was joined in the fourth round
by Manchester United and Man-
chester City yesterday.
United laboured past Sheffield
United 1-0 at Old Trafford, and
Manchester City emphatically
defeated Norwich 3-0.
Also, Premier League side Aston
Villa was held to 1-1 at fourth-tier
Wycombe, while fifth-tier East-
leigh drew 1-1 with second-division
It looked as if there could be a
shock at Emirates Stadium, where
the Premier League leader fell
behind to a Jermaine Lens strike
after 17 minutes for Sunderland,
which was second-to-last in the
But Joel Campbell equalised,
then two goals in three second-
half minutes from substitute Aaron
Ramsey and Olivier Giroud ensured
Arsenal moved on to the next
"In the second half we took
over," Arsenal manager Arsene
Wenger said. "We played in their
half, scored great goals, and created
United overcame Sheffield with
a penalty from Wayne Rooney with
time virtually up, but its perform-
ance against third-tier opposition
was another display lacking attack-
When substitute Memphis
Depay tried his luck with a low
shot which went comfortably wide
in the 66th minute, it was United s
first attempt at goal, and was
greeted with sarcastic cheers by
supporters. Depay was felled in
the box in the third minute of
injury time by Dean Hammond,
and Rooney scored from the spot.
United manager Louis van Gaal
regarded the result as more impor-
tant than the performance.
"You have to play more quickly
than we did in the first half," Van
"They are defending with 10, 11
players behind the ball. It s more
easy to defend than attack."
City had no problems at Nor-
wich. Sergio Aguero beat four play-
ers before converting for the open-
er, and assisted on the second
scored by Kelechi Iheanacho.
Kevin De Bruyne added the
third, shooting though the legs of
goalkeeper John Ruddy.
Eastleigh went 1-0 up over
Bolton in the second half of its
match at its Silverlake Stadium
with an own goal by Bolton
defender Dorian Dervite, but Dar-
ren Pratley saved humiliation by
leveling moments from the end.
Villa became the second Premier
League side to fail to beat fourth-
Villa captain Micah Richards
gave his side the lead in the first
half but Joe Jacobson leveled for
the Chairboys with a penalty.
Villa was also last in the Premier
League, and the draw stretched its
winless run to 16 matches. After
the game, Richards was on the
pitch having an animated discus-
sion with unhappy Villa supporters,
and manager Remi Garde accepted
"I can understand the fans,"
Garde said. "They travel a long
way...and this is what we deserve."
Liverpool was the first Premier
League side held by fourth-division
opponents on Friday, when it drew
with Exeter 2-2.
Its local rival Everton avoided a
similar fate against opponents from
the same division, as it beat Dagen-
ham 2-0 at Goodison Park with
goals from Aruna Kone and Kevin
West Brom needed a last-
minute goal from James Morrison
to draw with second tier Bristol
City 2-2 and earn a replay, while
Bournemouth came from a goal
behind to beat Birmingham 2-1.
Of other Premier League teams,
Southampton lost 2-1 against
Crystal Palace, Watford beat New-
castle 1-0, West Ham edged
Wolverhampton 1-0, and Stoke
beat Doncaster 2-1.
Real Madrid wins in
Zidane's debut as coach
MADRID---Zinedine Zidane s
head-coaching career got off to a
winning start as Real Madrid
defeated Deportivo La Coruna 5-
0 in the Spanish league yesterday.
Gareth Bale had a hat trick and
Karim Benzema scored twice,
including with a back-heel flick.
Zidane received a warm wel-
come at Santiago Bernabeu Sta-
dium, with fans loudly cheering
the France great before and after
the game in a stark contrast to
when Rafa Benitez was in charge.
The result moved Real Madrid
to within two points of Barcelona,
which earlier defeated Granada 4-
0 with a hat trick by Lionel Messi
and a goal by Neymar.
Messi nets hat trick,
Spanish league lead
MADRID---Lionel Messi s first hat
trick of the season helped
Barcelona beat Granada 4-0 and
take a provisional lead of the Span-
ish league yesterday.
Messi scored twice within the
first 15 minutes at the Camp Nou,
and added his third in the second
half as Barcelona cruised to victory.
Neymar closed the scoring late.
The victory lifted Barcelona one
point above Atletico Madrid, which
plays at fifth-place Celta Vigo
Barcelona will have a game in
hand after the 19th round this
Third-place Real Madrid was
five points behind Barcelona. It
hosted Deportivo La Coruna late
Saturday in the debut of new coach
Zinedine Zidane, who replaced the
fired Rafa Benitez this week.
Barcelona had drawn four of its
last six matches but was coming
off a 4-1 win over city rival
Espanyol in the first leg of the
round of 16 of the Copa del Rey.
It had been held by Espanyol to a
scoreless draw in the previous
Barcelona dominated Granada,
which was only 17th in the 20-
Messi and Neymar got the goals
but Luis Suarez also played well
and had chances to score.
If Dale Steyn is fit, he will play and
that's all there is to it. He is guaranteed his
place in the South African Test XI on
reputation and rightly so.
He is 15 wickets away from overtaking
Shaun Pollock as the country's highest
wicket-taker, has an average a shave over
Allan Donald's and strikes fear into
batsmen. Add to that his ability to swing
the ball, his pace and his accuracy and he
should be part of the side every time it
takes the field unless---and it seems
wrong to even contemplate it---the
situation demands something else.
Steyn's recent injury record (nine times
in the last two-and-a-half years since the
2013 Champions Trophy) has seen him
miss four of the last six Tests. South
Africa have had to find a way to function
without him. In India, after Steyn strained
a groin strain in the first Test, they gave
him until the first morning of each
subsequent Test to prove his fitness. It
spoke volumes about their optimism that
he might play.
During those seven weeks, team
management must have known of Steyn's
strain and the slim chances that gave him
of playing at all. When that became clear,
they should have ruled out of the series,
as they did Vernon Philander, and sent him
home to recover but he was kept. Perhaps
it was so India remained wary that he
could become a factor. Perhaps they are
doing the same thing now---only this time
they don't have to.
Without Steyn, South Africa have
sufficient options, especially as they
packed their squad with five other fast
