Published: 13 Apr 2010 Dwight Yorke…One of Manchester United’s biggest stars ever. Retired T&T footballer Dwight Yorke is among the top six best buys ever in the English Premiership League. Yorke, Frenchman Thierry Henry, Mauro Zarate, Wilson Palacios, Zat Knight and Antonio Valencia were the six players who came from relatively unknowns to Premier League stars. Sport.co.uk took a look at the six trailblazing deals which saw the relatively unknown stars become Premier League hits without breaking the bank. Dwight Yorke The smiling assassin, or as he is better known, Dwight Yorke, remains the biggest footballing export of T&T to date and will probably remain so for some time. In 1989, Aston Villa were on a tour of the West Indies and played a local team for which Dwight featured. Impressed with what he saw, former Villa manager Graham Taylor offered Yorke a trial and subsequently went on to award him a permanent contract. However, it was not until the 1995-1996 season that Yorke swapped to the famed centre forward position that made him a household name. In a career that spanned over 20 years, Dwight made 232 appearances for Aston Villa, scoring 73 goals, before moving to Manchester United…

Terry Frank Lampard scored against Aston Villa. // LONDON (AP): Chelsea can open up a four-point lead over Manchester United in the English Premier League title race by beating Bolton today. United's 0-0 draw at Blackburn on Sunday gave Chelsea more good news after the Blues reached the FA Cup final by beating Aston Villa 3-0 Saturday. The match against Bolton at Stamford Bridge is one of the five remaining league games for Chelsea, who last won the title in 2006. "We are playing well, the confidence is high. We have let the lead in the league slip once and we are determined not to let it slip again," Chelsea captain John Terry said. "It is three years since we won the Premier League and we are really determined to get it back to the Bridge. We have seen the team working hard in the last four or five weeks and that is the key. "The quality has always been there and always will be in the top four or five teams in the Premier League but if we can work hard, win our tackles and do the basics very well then we should be OK." A team meeting after…

Messi MADRID (AP): Victory over another top club has Lionel Messi believing Barcelona are unbeatable in their current form. Barcelona's 2-0 victory over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium last Saturday gave the defending champions control of the Spanish league race and prompted the Argentina international to say Barcelona are making "history". "Once again the team showed today we are superior to anybody else when we want to be," said Messi, who scored his 40th goal. "You always have to prove it on the field and today we did that." Although the Catalans' lead is only three points with seven games to play, Barcelona hold the head-to-head edge should the teams finish on equal points. Psychological blow Barcelona also dealt Madrid a psychological blow by recording back-to-back wins at the Bernabeu for the first time in the club's 111-year history while scoring a record fourth straight win over their closest rival. "We can keep making history," Messi said. "It was a very important triumph, but we have to continue on. I don't mean to say that with only words we win. You have to try to win every game and that's what we try to do, always." The Spanish…

SOUTH BEND, Indiana (CMC) Grenadian teenager Kirani James majestically ran a world-leading 45.79 seconds to win the men's 400 metres at the Meyo Invitational Indoor meet on Saturday. The 17-year-old James, on debut for the University of Alabama, eclipsed the previous 2010 world best of 45.81 by the US Virgin Islands ' Tabarie Henry. The 2009 IAAF World Youth Championship double gold medallist was unchallenged as he strode to a commanding win over Ohio State's Thomas Murdaugh and Iowa's Steven Willey. Murdaugh was a well-beaten second in 46.43 and Willey clocked 47.22 for third behind James, who only last month accepted a full athletics scholarship to the University of Alabama. The promising James is being coached at Alabama by Harvey Glance, a former 100-metre world-record holder. Glance was among the coaches visiting Grenada last year when a flurry of US Colleges sent scouts to lure the young sensation. James ran a scorching 45.45 seconds to erase Usain Bolt's six-year-old CARIFTA Games record of 46.35 in St Lucia last April and IAAF media reps labelled him 'the next Usain Bolt' after the 16-year-old delivered a majestic sprint double success at the IAAF World Youth (Under-18) Championship in Italy last July. He…
