Brendan Rodgers’ men will now face fierce rivals Manchester United – 3-1 winners against Real Madrid – in the final of the tournament in Miami on Monday night as they prepare for their Barclays Premier League opener against Southampton on August 17. Liverpool continued their good pre-season form with a 2-0 win over AC Milan in the International Champions Cup on Saturday in Charlotte. Manchester City – who could have leapfrogged the Reds to set up a derby with United had results went their way – ended their stay in the States with a penalty shoot-out defeat to Olympiacos following a 2-2 draw. Stevan Jovetic and Aleksandar Kolarov’s penalty had put City in the lead on two different occasions but each time Dimitrios Diamantakos found the net to send the game to spot-kicks. And English trio James Milner, Scott Sinclair and Micah Richards all missed from 12 yards to consign the Premier League champions to defeat. Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela were among the goalscorers as Tottenham thrashed Celtic 6-1 in Helsinki. Spurs raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to efforts from frontmen Harry Kane and Soldado in the fourth and 11th minutes respectively. Jamie Lindsay pulled a goal back for Celtic in the 43rd, but a minute later Lewis Holtby restored the two-goal cushion and Tottenham kept the momentum going after the break. Midfielder Lamela – who, like Soldado, is looking to bounce back after a disappointing first season with the London club – made it 4-1 just before the hour mark. And a Christian Eriksen free-kick and Emmanuel Adebayor penalty wrapped up the rout in the last 10 minutes, while Celtic’s misery was compounded by a red card for Efe Ambrose – his second this week, having been dismissed in Wednesday’s Champions League qualifier against Legia Warsaw.

Sergi Darder opened the scoring in the 25th minute with a long-range strike that went in off the woodwork. Samu Castillejo volleyed in at the far post in the 32nd minute and the same man then netted a deflected effort towards the end of the half before Gabriel Obertan fired in a consolation on the hour. Summer signing Bafetimbi Gomis was on the scoresheet for Swansea as they beat Reading 3-1 at the Madejski Stadium. The France striker provided a cool finish to seal the victory in the second half. Wayne Routledge had earlier – after Wilfried Bony crashed a penalty against the crossbar – scored twice in three minutes to put the Swans in charge, with the hosts replying through a Nick Blackman wonderstrike. Crystal Palace suffered a 3-2 defeat at Championship newcomers Brentford. A flurry of goals early in the second half saw Jonathan Douglas and Andre Gray put the home team 2-0 up and Palace then draw level through Glenn Murray and Marouane Chamakh. Moses Odubajo subsequently notched the winner. A Stoke XI drew 0-0 at Burton and West Brom went down 1-0 at Nottingham Forest courtesy of a Matty Fryatt goal.

Leicester drew 1-1 at Preston, with Liam Moore’s goal cancelled out by a Tom Clarke header. Aston Villa slumped to a 4-1 defeat away against Dutch side Groningen after conceding two goals in the opening eight minutes. Both of those were scored by Tjaronn Chery, and Jarchinio Antonia then made it 3-0 on the half-hour.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The ranks of Americans thrown out of work by the coronavirus ballooned Thursday to more than 20 million in just four weeks, an unprecedented collapse fueling widening protests and propelling President Donald Trump’s push to relax the nation’s social distancing guidelines.Trump planned to announce new recommendations later in the day, despite warnings from business leaders and governors that more testing and protective gear are needed first.The government said 5.2 million more people applied for unemployment benefits last week, bringing the running total to about 22 million out of a U.S. work force of roughly 159 million — easily the worst stretch of U.S. job losses on record.Some economists say the unemployment rate could reach 20% in April, the highest since the Great Depression of the 1930s.While some leaders and citizens have called on government to reopen stores, factories and schools, health authorities and many politicians warned that returning to normal is a distant goal and that easing up on restrictions too soon could allow the virus to come storming back.The decision of when and how to ease up rests with state and local leaders, who imposed the mandatory lockdowns and other restrictions put in place over the past month.The outbreak has infected more than 2 million people worldwide and killed more than 137,000, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University, though the true numbers are believed to be much higher. The death toll in the U.S. reached about 31,000, with over 600,000 confirmed infections.Fallout from the virus spread in ways both predictable and devastating, from police torching an illicit food market in Zimbabwe, to emergency flights carrying foreign farm workers to Britain and Germany, and protests at U.S. state capitols against job losses.In France, Amazon suspended operations after a court ruled it wasn’t doing enough to protect its workers in the country. The online retailer has six warehouses in France.In Britain, a government survey found that a quarter of companies had suspended business. Cargo traffic at Europe’s massive port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands sank 9.3% in the first quarter from the same period a year ago, and its CEO warned of worse to come.The World Health Organization’s European chief said optimism that the spread of the virus is declining in Italy, Spain and France has been tempered by the knowledge that it is rising or remaining at a high level in Britain, Russia and Turkey.“The storm clouds of this pandemic still hang heavily over the European region,” Dr. Hans Kluge said.On Wednesday, the U.S. reported that American industrial output shriveled in March, registering its biggest decline since the nation demobilized in 1946 at the end of World War II. Retail sales fell by an unprecedented 8.7%, with April expected to be far worse.The International Monetary Fund said fallout from what it calls the “Great Lockdown” will be the most devastating since the Depression.That has made leaders all the more anxious to send people back to work and school and to rebuild devastated economies.Italy’s hardest-hit region of Lombardy is pushing to relaunch manufacturing on May 4, the day that the national lockdown is set to lift. Regional officials are considering ordering companies to stagger opening hours to avoid cramming public transportation.But Italy’s deputy economic development minister, Stefan Buffagni, called the plan premature: “Going in a random order risks fueling confusion among citizens and businesses.”In the U.S., thousands came out in Michigan and Oklahoma to protest the lockdowns they say have destroyed livelihoods.In Michigan, some were masked and armed with rifles, but many unmasked people defied stay-at-home orders and jammed nearly shoulder-to-shoulder in front of the Capitol building in Lansing. In Oklahoma, cars plastered with protest signs drove past the Statehouse in Oklahoma City: “All jobs are essential,” read one sign on the back of a pickup truck.“This arbitrary blanket spread of shutting down businesses, about putting all of these workers out of business, is just a disaster. It’s an economic disaster for Michigan,” said protester Meshawn Maddock.In Michigan’s northern Leelanau County, Sheriff Mike Borkovich said enforcing the restrictions is taking a toll.“People are frantic to get back to work. They have been very edgy,” he said.Troubling data indicate the worst may still be to come in many parts of the world.Japan’s prime minister announced he would expand a state of emergency to the entire country, rather than just urban areas, as the virus continued to spread. Japan has the world’s oldest population, and the elderly are especially vulnerable to the coronavirus.The British government was set Thursday to extend a nationwide lockdown for several more weeks, as health officials say the coronavirus outbreak in the country is peaking. Britain awaited its first flight of Romanian farm workers, and more than 30,000 other workers registered for flights to Germany to help plant and harvest.U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged stepped-up efforts to prepare Africa for the virus, warning that the continent “could end up suffering the greatest impacts.”In Zimbabwe, where food was scarce even before the outbreak, police raided a market, torching 3 tons of fresh fruit and vegetables and scattering farmers who had broken travel restrictions to try to sell their crops.
