The Philadelphia Union are one win shy of posting the best season in franchise history. White Sox Jerseys China . Theyll look to set that record Saturday when they head to Portland, Ore., to take on the Timbers.With a month left in the regular season, Philadelphia (11-10-8) is in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings with 41 points. A 12th win would set a franchise record.But the Union face a difficult three-game road trip, starting with Saturdays tilt with playoff-minded Portland.Its going to be difficult, Philadelphia coach Jim Curtin told the teams website. Weve had a good eye on those three games going on the road, we knew it would be a challenge. At the same time, weve proven we can win on the road, we can get points on the road.You can see now in this league when some of the teams at the bottom are desperate and theyre fighting for points there are no easy games home or away in this league, so we know we have a challenge ahead of us, Curtin added. We want to go into those final two home games being in the playoffs and then go from there and try and work our way up in terms of seeding.Philadelphia is 3-7-4 on the road this season and can expect a motivated effort from Portland.The Timbers (10-11-8) are clinging to the sixth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with 38 points, four ahead of the Vancouver Whitecaps. Portland has won its last three home games, is 10-3-2 at home and has scored more goals at home (32) than any other team this season.The Timber blanked Salt Lake 1-0 on Sept. 10 in their last MLS game. They dropped a 4-2 decision to Saprissa in CONCACAF Champions League play.Forward Fanendo Adi leads the Timbers with 14 goals, three behind MLS leader Bradley Wright-Phillips of the New York City Red Bulls.

Chicago White Sox Pro Shop . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. Cheap White Sox Jerseys . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. https://www.cheapwhitesox.com/ . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. MANCHESTER, England -- Every goal and stand-out performance by Chelsea winger Eden Hazard in the Premier League makes his insipid form of last season even more of a mystery.The Belgium international took his tally for the season to five goals with the sixth-minute strike in a 2-0 victory at Southampton on Sunday. Hes scored in three straight league games and is back to being one of the most feared attackers in English soccer.Its hard to fathom that this is the same player who last season -- as the reigning Player of the Year in England -- didnt score in the Premier League until April 23, the 34th game of Chelseas woeful title defense. After 10 games this season, hes already netted more times than last season (4).Hazard was one of the players whose form dipped sharply as Chelsea unraveled under then-coach Jose Mourinho. He was even dropped at times, perhaps lacking motivation and the appetite for being a hard-working winger in Mourinhos rigid system.He is rejuvenated under new Chelsea coach Antonio Conte, benefiting from being given a more central and attacking role which lessens the need for him to track back and defend.Hazard had something of a swagger at St. Marys Stadium as he tormented Southampton, which is coached by Claude Puel -- the man who gave the winger his professional debut in football at French club Lille in 2007.Diego Costa scored the other goal as Chelsea won a fourth straight game to stay just a point behind a trio of teams atop the Premier League. Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool all won on Saturday.In the other game Sunday, another Belgian stood out. Romelu Lukaku scored one goal and set up the other in Everttons 2-0 win at home to West Ham. Custom Chicago White Sox Jerseys. ---SOUTHAMPTON 0, CHELSEA 2It was a fourth straight clean sheet for Chelsea since Conte switched to a three-man defense, but the Italian has the team rolling at both ends of the field.Hazard got in behind Steven Davis, reached the byline, cut inside the Southampton midfielder and slammed a fierce shot between Fraser Fosters goals to put Chelsea ahead. It was another early goal by Chelsea after its opener inside a minute in the 4-0 win over Manchester United last weekend.Costa added the second goal in the 55th by curling home a fine finish from 25 meters after picking up a lay-off from Hazard.Costa has eight goals this season, making him the top scorer in the Premier League.It was a first loss in six games for Southampton.---EVERTON 2, WEST HAM 0Lukaku must wish he could play West Ham every week.The striker scored a close-range header in the 50th to set his team on its way to a 2-0 win over West Ham and a first Premier League victory in five games. It was Lukakus ninth game against West Ham for Everton -- and he has scored in every one of them.Lukaku also was the provider for Evertons second goal, sending a cross over for Ross Barkley to prod home at the back post in the 76th minute.Everton stayed five points off the leaders.---LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIPBirmingham and Aston Villa drew 1-1 in the game known in English soccer as the Second City Derby.Steve Bruce was back at St. Andrews as the recently hired Villa manager, nine years after resigning as coach of Birmingham.
