Tweet @SkyFootball using the hashtag #TylersTeasersMartin’s Starting StatsBranislav Ivanovic has now scored three goals in his last five games in all competitions and his goal against PSG was his seventh in the competition since 2009, more than any other defender.Chelsea’s opener was the fourth Champions League goal this season to be both scored and assisted by a defender and the second for an English side (Kieran Gibbs’ goal for Arsenal v Anderlecht was assisted by Calum Chambers).Eden Hazard was fouled nine times in this match; the most by a player in a Champions League game this season.PSG have only lost one of their last nine Champions League knockout games (W4 D4), but that was against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in April 2014. They are unbeaten in their last 33 home games in European competition (W22 D11), the longest ever run for a French club.Jose Mourinho has only lost one of his 16 Champions League games against French clubs (W11 D4) – and remember you can see the second leg of this Champions League match live on Sky Sports.Bouncing back Crystal Palace have earned 15 points from losing positions this season. I went to Crystal Palace’s game with Newcastle last night and it occurred to me we always seem to go behind, but often come back and get points. Has any other team got more points from losing positions than we do this season? (Richard, London)MARTIN SAYS: Crystal Palace’s second-half equaliser in their 1-1 draw against Newcastle at Selhurst Park on Wednesday was the 15th point they have earned from a losing position so far this campaign.The other games Palace rescued points from after trailing in games this season were in the corresponding fixture with Newcastle (a 3-3 draw), the 3-2 win at Everton (a), the 3-1 win over Liverpool (h), the 1-1 draw with Swansea (a), the 2-1 win over Tottenham (h) and the 3-2 win at Burnley (a).No other Premier League team has earned more points from losing positions this season. However, Tottenham have ALSO earned 15 points from losing positions. Those came in the 2-1 win over Aston Villa (a), the 2-1 win at Hull (a), the 2-1 win over Everton (h), the famous 5-3 success over Chelsea (h) and of course the 2-1 north London derby win over Arsenal (h).Champions Manchester City have managed to recover 11 points from losing situations. Meanwhile, both Chelsea and Newcastle have accumulated 10 points after being behind in the Premier League in 2014/15.I will never forget Palace’s 3-3 draw with Liverpool at the end of last season; one of the greatest comebacks we’ve ever seen on Sky Sports. The spirit of that famous night has carried over to this season.Heads I win Alan Shearer has scored the most headed goals in the Premier League. Has anyone scored more Premier League headers than Peter Crouch? #TylersTeasers (Minimillso)MARTIN SAYS: According to our friends at Opta, only one player has score more Premier League headers than Peter Crouch. Alan Shearer actually tops the charts at present with 46 headed goals in his Premier League career.Crouch’s header against Man City last week took him to 45 headed goals, level with former Coventry and Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin. That means Crouch needs just one more Premier League header to match the record and two to break it.Completing the top 10 are six more forwards and a midfielder: Les Ferdinand (40), Dwight Yorke (38), Duncan Ferguson (36), Teddy Sheringham (36), Tim Cahill (31), Robbie Fowler (28) and Andrew Cole (27).I recall that before our live game on New Year’s Day, Crouch was interviewed by Geoff Shreeves and spoke of his desire to get 100 Premier League goals. He is on 94 and is clearly ticking them off in his head – in fact his next non-header will be his 50th without his head, which shows he is not a one-dimensional player. I do the introductions for the Sky Sports show The 100 Club – and I’m looking forward to getting the words ready for our programme on Peter’s century!Rock bottom Nigel Pearsons Leicester have been bottom of the Premier League since November 29. Leicester have been bottom of the league since the last week of November, but has a team ever been bottom for a longer run and still avoided the drop come the end of the season? (Sam, Leicester)MARTIN SAYS: Nigel Pearson’s side fell to the foot of the Premier League standings on November 29 and regardless of upcoming results (and the fact they do not play on the weekend of February 28/March 1), Leicester will still hold that position on March 4.That will be 95 consecutive days on the bottom of the Premier League. They could move off the bottom on March 4 if they pick up results away at Everton and Manchester City and other results go their way.Ominously for Leicester, however, no side has ever spent 100 consecutive days bottom of the Premier League and survived.However, there is hope for all you Leicester fans out there – and it comes from the West Bromwich Albion side of 2004/05.That team slipped to the bottom of the Premier League on 27 November 2004. However by March 6 2005, some 99 days later, manager Bryan Robson - who had replaced Gary Megson in the Hawthorns dugout the previous November - had managed to steer the club away from the bottom of the table.And West Brom went on to finish the season in 17th place after beating Portsmouth 2-0 in their final match to avoid relegation by one point.It was all yellow… QPR midfielder Joey Barton was booked for the seventh straight game at Sunderland. Joey Barton was booked for the seventh straight game. Is that a record (Ken, Manchester)MARTIN SAYS: Barton’s yellow card at Sunderland last week, his seventh in a row for Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League, was indeed a new - and rather unwanted - record. According to Opta, no other player has been booked in seven consecutive Premier League appearances before.Two other players have been booked in SIX straight games. Those players are Newcastle’s Cheick Tiote (across two seasons 2010/11 – 2011/12) and Aston Villa’s Ciaran Clark (2010/11).Villa flat up front Aston Villa hold the record for the fewest number of goals after 25 matches of a Premier League season. After Villa’s latest failure to score at Hull I see they have now managed just 12 goals in their 25 league games this season – is that a record for this stage of a campaign? (Burt, Surrey)MARTIN SAYS:  We are revisiting this run because we get a lot of questions about Aston Villa’s poor form – and I apologise to fans for returning to the subject. Commiserations to Paul Lambert, who could not have tried harder to sort the problem out, and good luck to Tim Sherwood in his quest for improvement.But yes Villa do now hold the record for the fewest number of goals after 25 matches of a Premier League season, one less than Derby had at the same stage seven years ago.Other low-scoring teams after 25 games of a Premier League campaign are Watford, who managed just 14 goals in 2006/07, and the likes of Sunderland, Bradford and Manchester City, who all netted only 16 times in 2002/03, 2000/01 and 1995/96 respectively.And finally both Portsmouth - in the 2005/06 campaign - and Leicester – in the 2001/02 season - had scored a measly 17 goals after 25 fixtures. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Reflective Italia . 17.A string of English Premier League teams, most in the lower end of the standings, has been linked to the 32-year-old forward but most have seemingly balked at the cost given his wages and transfer fee. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra Italia . Ribery, who won UEFAs best player in Europe award for the 2012-13 season, helped Bayern Munich win the Champions League and Bundesliga and German Cup titles. Messi, winner of the last four Ballon dOr awards in voting by coaches, team captains and media, was injured late in the season and could not prevent Barcelona from being beaten by Bayern in the Champions League semifinals.As 2013 winds to a close, looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. TSN.cas writing staff reflects on the best baseball moments from the past 12 months including the Jays highs and lows, Ichiros moment in the sun, Todd Heltons farewell and more! Torontos Opening Day optimism vanishes in a hurry By: Barry Riz A winter unlike most in Blue Jays history had passed with some of the most dramatic player upgrades the franchise had ever seen. Jose Reyes, Melky Cabrera, R.A. Dickey, Mark Buehrle, and Josh Johnson were each star additions and made the Blue Jays a revitalized force in the AL East. Many prognosticators saw Toronto as a 95-win team, and Las Vegas sportsbooks had the Jays as World Series favourites. Opening Day is usually sold out in Toronto - but tickets to this one against Cleveland were tough to come by two months in advance. There was a buzz in the stadium, an expectation that had been building all winter. The road back to the postseason was going to start - and start in style - with defending NL Cy Young winner Dickey on the hill for the Blue Jays. Well for those who believe in signs, there were plenty to go around. Catcher J.P. Arencibia allowed three passed balls from the knuckleballer which led in part to Clevelands first two runs. Torontos newly potent offence was held to just four hits, with their sole run coming on a double play groundout. The Indians cruised to a 4-1 win. After months of winter build-up the aura of invincibility for Blue Jay fans was gone in a hurry. Ichiro joins baseballs elite By: Shane McNeil Baseball has had a pretty brutal couple decades from the 1994 players strike through to the Biogenesis bombshell of 2013, but Ichiro is the type of classic baseball player that performs at the most basic technical level in hugely entertaining fashion. I dont care that he has hit one home run for every 83 major league plate appearance, because theres no one else in the game Id rather see run as fast as they can from home to first. So when Ichiro joined Pete Rose and Ty Cobb as the only professional ball players to reach the 4,000 hit plateau on Aug. 21, it gave baseball fans a chance to respect a man who has excelled at the game on its most basic of levels. Some put an asterisk on the achievement due to his time in Japan, but there are many reasons why those people are wrong. Ichiro has played baseball in a beautiful and dignified way for the last 13 years in North America while countless other superstars have chosen not to. If we cant allow the man his one moment in the sun in what is likely the twilight of his MLB career, were doing something wrong. A quiet goodbye for a Hall-of-Famer By: Mike Beauvais The 2013 MLB season had some great storylines and it was one of the more compelling campaigns in recent memory including legendary New York Yankees reliever Mariano Riveras farewell tour. There was another significant retirement in 2013, but it certainly didnt receive the coverage that Riveras did. On Sept. 17, Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton announced that the 2013 season would be his last in the MLB. Only 11 days later, he would play his final game at Coors Field. There was a modest ceremony prior to the game and Helton would go on to close out his career in Denver with a home run and three RBI. Maybe Heltons retirement didnt merit the fanfare that came with Riveras, but Heltons played out much like the majority of his 17 seasons with the Rockies did â€" quietly and under the mainstream radar. If youre a casual baseball fan, you just might be taken aback by Heltons career numbers: .316 career batting average, top-10 all-time in OBP (.430,), only player in MLB history to have 10-consecutive seasons of 35 or more doubles as well as countless Rockies career records. Helton was never the sexy name that Derek Jeter was and never starred in the spotlight of the Bronx like Jeter and Rivera did, but Todd Helton was the Colorado Rockies talisman and worthy of Cooperstown consideration. In his final at bat on that cool, September night in Denver, Helton went out as unassumingly as you would think a pplayer like Helton would: he struck out swinging before politely soaking in the standing ovation from the Coors Field crowd. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Peanut Butter. "It goes by really quick," Helton said after the game of his career. "You blink and here you are." Brian McCann stands up for his principles By: Daan De Kerpel In a two week span in September, Brian McCann had confrontations with Miami Marlins rookie Jose Fernandez followed by Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez after they each admired a home run a little too long. On Sept. 11, Fernandez was making his last start of the season in Miami. In the sixth inning, he hit a home run and watched it a little too slowly for the Braves liking. As he rounded third, Fernandez made some gestures to the Braves bench, which didnt sit well with McCann, who immediately started talking to the 20-year-old. After the game, Fernandez told the media that he apologized to both McCann and Mike Minor, the pitcher who hit the home run off of. McCanns response: "Hey, man, youre a kid but youre in the big leagues. You need to do what big leaguers do." Perhaps taking a page out of Johnsons playbook, McCann was much more animated two weeks later when Gomez took Paul Maholm deep, watched the ball sail into the seats before running. After trading barbs with Braves players as he ran the bases, McCann stood in front of home plate and wouldnt let the Gomez pass. That led to the benches clearing and even punches being thrown. While no one is expecting McCann to display this type of fire all the time in the regular season, the fact that he can get that wound up in games against non-playoff teams in September, makes me wonder what hell be like in a rivalry game against the Red Sox. The infectious joy that is Munenori Kawasaki By: Sarah Zintel The Toronto Blue Jays 2013 season may not have met their fans expectations but they certainly got lucky with the hilarious distraction that was Munenori Kawasaki. He stormed onto the Jays infield leaving everyone in stiches. The shortstop quickly became best known for his unorthodox stretching, unique dance moves, original handshakes with teammates, and most importantly his interview skills. The Japan natives most infamous interview was after his walk-off double for the win at home against the Orioles where he stole the show with his preplanned notes and poor English. The interview quickly went viral and most recently earned him the MLBs GIBBY Award for "Cut 4 Topic of the Year". Kawasakis positive and joyous attitude helped motivate not only the fans but also his teammates to come together and celebrate the Blue Jays, despite the team finishing last in the AL East. The team declined Kawasakis option for next season and the fans will surely miss his spirit. But one thing that will never be forgotten is: "My name is Munenori Kawasaki. I come from Japan. Im Japanese!" MLB strikes unlikely gold in Game 162 By: Shane McNeil So, were now two years into Major League Baseballs expanded playoff format and while nothing could replicate the insanity of the final day of the 2011 season, the extra playoff spot has at least provided meaningful games on the seasons final day with regularity. This season was no different, as the Tampa Bay Rays, Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians entered the final game vying for wild card spots. All three teams won their final game, setting up a one-game playoff between the Rangers and Rays to earn a spot in another one-game playoff with the Indians. But the highlight of the day would come not from the wild card chase but a meaningless game in Miami. Marlins hurler Henderson Alvarez no-hit the Detroit Tigers for nine innings, but his teammates were unable to get him a run through eight. The Marlins caught some fortuitous bounces in the ninth, including the wild pitch that would plate Giancarlo Stanton for the winning run. Immediately after Stanton crossed, the Marlins mobbed Alvarez â€" who was standing in the on-deck circle - to celebrate the achievement. When was the last time you saw a pitcher relish a no-no with a batters helmet on? ' ' '
