    LONDON - Just three months into the season, it is hard to see how Chelsea can be stopped in its remorseless charge to the English Premier League title. Rayshawn Jenkins Youth Jersey .For many, the biggest question now is whether it can go through the season unbeaten.Chelsea got past another major obstacle on its way to the league title by winning 2-1 at Liverpool on Saturday. Defending champion Manchester City, probably Chelseas biggest rival, is eight points behind in third after 11 games following a 2-2 draw at Queens Park Rangers.Bayern Munich won to also open up a big lead in Germany while Real Madrid stayed at the top of the Spanish league with a rout of Rayo Vallecano, and Luis Suarez led Barcelona to victory over Almeria with two assists.Heres a look at the action from the top European leagues:___ENGLANDChelsea came from behind to beat Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League, with Diego Costa scoring the winner in the 67th minute.Emre Can put Liverpool ahead in the ninth minute with a long-range strike that deflected off Gary Cahill, before Cahill reacted quickest in a goalmouth scramble to equalize with a 14th-minute goal that needed confirming through goal-line technology.Asked if his team could go through the season unbeaten, Mourinho said it would be the impossible job. Yet Chelsea has played four of its hardest away matches this season — the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool and Everton — and is even harder to beat at home.Southampton stayed four points behind in second place thanks to Shane Longs double in a 2-0 win over Leicester but Man City dropped two more points by drawing at QPR, with Sergio Aguero scoring two equalizers to take his league-high haul to 12 goals.Manchester United won 1-0 against Crystal Palace thanks to a goal from Juan Mata. Burnley won for first time this season, 1-0 against Hull, and West Ham drew 0-0 with Aston Villa.___SPAINSuarez set up two late goals to help give Barcelona a 2-1 comeback victory at Almeria in the Spanish league.With Barcelona trailing 1-0 and facing a third straight loss in the competition, Suarez came on at halftime and orchestrated the visitors fightback in his fourth appearance for his new team since completing a four-month biting ban.The Uruguay forward used a burst of speed to shed his marker before crossing for fellow substitute Neymar to equalize in the 73rd minute. He then picked out Jordi Alba to grab the winner in the 82nd.Almeria forward Bifouma Thievy had put the hosts ahead in the 22nd on a counterattack after Lionel Messi lost the ball.Barcelona went top of the table for a couple of hours, and then provisionally went into second place after Real Madrid routed Rayo Vallecano 5-1 to retake first place in La Liga. Cristiano Ronaldo polished off the lopsided win with his league-leading 18th goal and 23rd in all competitions this season.Valencia and Atletico Madrid can also overtake Barcelona with wins on Sunday.___GERMANYThomas Mueller scored a hat trick as Bayern Munich won 4-0 at Eintracht Frankfurt to increase its overnight lead in the Bundesliga to seven points on Saturday.Franck Ribery set up Muellers first two, crossing for the World Cup winner to open the scoring in the 22nd minute and then again to finish a counterattack in the 64th. Mueller completed his hat trick three minutes later and Xherdan Shaqiri completed the scoring in the 86th.Bayern is unbeaten, with eight wins from 11 games, 27 goals scored and just three conceded.The defending champions closest rivals, Wolfsburg and Borussia Moenchengladbach, were both playing their 11th-round games on Sunday.Elsewhere Saturday, Schalke disappointed in a 2-0 defeat at Freiburg, Bayer Leverkusen was held to a frustrating 0-0 draw by visiting Mainz, Augsburg beat promoted Paderborn 3-0 and Cologne won 4-3 at Hoffenheim. Werder Bremen defeated fellow struggler Stuttgart 2-0.___ITALYAC Milans winless streak stretched to four matches following a 2-2 draw at third-place Sampdoria in Serie A on Saturday, although the Rossoneri could at least celebrate promising young forward Stephan El Shaarawy breaking his scoring drought.El Shaarawy put Milan ahead in the 10th minute with his first goal in two seasons. Stefano Okaka scored for Sampdoria just before halftime and Brazilian forward Eder put the hosts ahead in the 51st. Jeremy Menez equalized for Milan with a penalty in the 65th.Earlier, Sassuolo stretched its unbeaten streak to five matches by drawing 0-0 with visiting Atalanta in a matchup of two squads in the lower half of the table.___FRANCEBordeaux beat struggling Lens 2-1 to go level on points with second-place Paris Saint-Germain in the French league on Saturday.Bordeaux midfielder Wahbi Khazri finished off a counterattack to open the scoring in the 24th minute. Mali striker Cheick Diabate doubled the lead by dribbling past goalkeeper Valentin Belon in the 41st for his fifth league goal this season.After scoring, Diabate rushed toward the touchline to hug Bordeaux coach Willy Sagnol, who could not hold back tears later on the bench. Sagnol apologized Thursday for making disparaging comments about African players this week.Before kickoff, Sagnol shook hands with Lens coach Antoine Kombouare, who was born in New Caledonia and said Thursday he felt humiliated and hurt when he heard those comments.Lens striker Yoann Touzghar scored a consolation goal with a penalty in the 74th. Forrest Lamp Womens Jersey .Y. - OK, it is done. Mike Williams Youth Jersey .J. - Several people have collapsed in an overcrowded New Jersey train station while waiting in long lines to get to the Super Bowl.BALTIMORE – The Blue Jays won the game, 11-3, and the series, two out of three, at Camden Yards but it came at a price. Maicer Izturis, whod begun to morph into the Blue Jays starting second baseman thanks to a hot start offensively, sprained his left knee in a freak accident in the first inning. It happened as he was descending the dugout steps to the bat rack. Izturis has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. It was a freak accident and while the early diagnosis is a sprain, when Izturis explains it, hes expecting the worst. "Its in the knee, I felt it pop twice," said Izturis. "Now I feel pain. Its sore right now and Im worried about that." Izturis, off to a .286/.324/.314 start, will have an MRI on Monday in Minneapolis. Infielder Munenori Kawasaki has been called up from Buffalo. Meanwhile, Colby Rasmus left the game after scoring a run in the sixth inning. He says he tweaked his left hamstring while making a running catch on a Nick Markakis fly ball in the fifth. Rasmus doesnt believe its serious. "Just to make sure its nothing big and weve got an off day (Monday) and we were up in the game, so I decided to come out just to make sure everythings good," said Rasmus. If Rasmus is forced to miss games, the timing isnt good. Hes heating up at the plate with home runs in back-to-back games and a three-hit, three-RBI afternoon on Sunday. Rasmus home run in the first inning on Sunday left the park, literally, landing on Eutaw Street in front of the famous warehouse building in right field. It was the 78th home run to land on Eutaw Street in the history of Oriolee Park at Camden Yards, which is in its 23rd season. Forrest Lamp Chargers Jersey. Encarnacion feels relief Edwin Encarnacion broke out on Sunday with a three-hit game, which included his first two RBIs of the season. Did Edwin feel any relief? "Big time," said Encarnacion. Manager John Gibbons dropped Encarnacion to the fifth spot in the order, moving Adam Lind up to clean-up. "Just timing," said Encarnacion of his early season issues. "Hitting is about timing. When you have the timing, you can hit. I feel a lot better the last couple of games so I hope I continue to do that." Through 12 games, Encarnacion had been hitting only .174/.240/.261. Hes still looking for his first home run. Happ to join Jays in Minneapolis Left-hander J.A. Happ, who started the season on the disabled list with inflammation in his back, will rejoin the ballclub in time for the three-game series against the Twins. To make room for Happ on the active roster, catcher Erik Kratz was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. Reyes and Janssen go to Florida While their teammates travel to chilly Minneapolis, Jose Reyes (hamstring) and Casey Janssen (abdominal strain) are headed to Dunedin to continue their respective rehabilitations. Reyes will play in an extended spring training game on Monday, which will allow him to lead off each inning. Hell then play for Single-A Dunedin on Tuesday. Janssen is expected to make an in-game appearance no later than Tuesday. The Blue Jays hope to have Reyes back for next weekends series in Cleveland. The timetable for Janssens return is less clear at the moment. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
