Arsenal football club of England really have themselves to blame as they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Man United at the Emirates stadium on Saturday night despite Paul Pogba receiving a red card for a careless tackle and Arsenal possessing 75% of the ball.
United went ahead early on at the Emirates through Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard, with the latter scoring again in the second half after a Lacazette consolation goal to seal the win.
Arsenal dominated in the match but were poor with their finishing unlike Man U who were deadly on the break and used counter attack mechanics to great effect.
De Gea stopped all of Arsenal’s opportunities to equalise and reached a record – goalkeeper with the highest saves-14 in an EPL match , the highest number of saves made by a goalkeeper in a single match since the 2003 season when Opta started keeping records in the Premier league .
Paul Pogba after his red card, left Jose Mourinho red-faced and the manager had to at times play a 7 man defensive line up to counter Arsenal’s 7 man attacking players during the contest.
De Gea was so good that Wenger could be pictured mentally cursing at the Spaniard with each massive save.
The whole Emirates stadium erupted when DeGea made two massive saves in the space of 3 seconds, first Lacazette sent a low, shot towards the near post that De Gea did unbelievably well to push out, and then De Gea miraculously somehow managed to get up again to block Alexis Sanchez’s follow up shot with his feet.
Mourinho will be happy to have gotten 3 points at Arsenal’s backyard, as he faces table topping Manchester city next, but without his star midfielder- Paul Pogba.
As for Arsene Wenger, this match was proof that having good attackers without having good defenders is like a car with no brakes, you can’t control it!!!
Tunisia: former President Ben Ali confirmed dead
All time, former Tunisia’s President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali has died in exile aged 83, his family says.
Ben Ali led the country for 30years and was credited with delivering stability and some economic prosperity.
But he received widespread criticism for suppressing political freedoms and for widespread corruption.
In 2011, he was forced from office following mass street protests. This triggered a wave of similar uprisings across the Arab world.
At least half a dozen countries in the region saw their president fall or conflicts break out in the wake of the former Tunisian leader’s downfall, in what became known as the Arab Spring.
Gantz refuse’s Netanyahu offer on unity government
After a vote tally showing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tied with his main rival.
Israel’s weakened Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saw his offer on Thursday for a coalition with his strongest political rival, Gantz, swiftly rebuffed after failing to secure a governing majority in a tight election.
Netanyahu’s surprise move was an abrupt change of strategy for the right-wing leader. Its rejection could spell weeks of wrangling after Tuesday’s election, which followed an inconclusive national ballot in April.
Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party emerged from the second round of voting this year slightly ahead of Netanyahu’s Likud, but also short of enough supporters in the 120-member parliament for a ruling bloc.
Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving leader, said in a video clip in which he urged Gantz, the country’s former military chief, to meet him “as soon as today”, that he had pledged during the election campaign to form a right-wing, Likud-led government.
