Bournemouth 2 Arsenal 1: Wenger’s worries worsen without Sanchez Iain Strachan Last updated 1 year ago 23:22 1/14/18 Getty Images The absence of Alexis Sanchez was keenly felt by Arsenal as they lost away to Bournemouth in the Premier League. Arsenal experienced an uncomfortable taste of life without Alexis Sanchez on Sunday, as they gave up the lead to lose 2-1 away to struggling Bournemouth. The visitors were missing two key players on the south coast, where a knee injury kept Mesut Ozil out of the team and Sanchez was omitted as he continues to be linked with a move to Manchester City or Manchester United.The absence of the Gunners’ chief creator and most potent attacking threat told as they struggled to break down the home team prior to Hector Bellerin’s 52nd-minute opener.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Callum Wilson’s equaliser with 20 minutes to go was quickly followed by Jordon Ibe’s first Premier League goal for Bournemouth and those strikes proved enough to register a famous victory for Eddie Howe’s team, who are now unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions. Arsenal meanwhile remain sixth, but have not won in five and are struggling to keep pace with the Champions League qualification challengers ahead of them in the table. If, as expected, Sanchez completes an imminent move to the Etihad Stadium or Old Trafford, Arsene Wenger must find new attacking solutions ahead of a London derby at home to a resurgent Crystal Palace next weekend.69 mins: Bournemouth 0-1 Arsenal74 mins Bournemouth 2-1 ArsenalWhat a turnaround for @afcbournemouth! pic.twitter.com/gExysVdP7q— Premier League (@premierleague) January 14, 2018Bournemouth enjoyed an early sight of goal when Adam Smith fired wide from outside the area, but it was Arsenal who had the better of the opening exchanges.Ainsley Maitland-Niles hit the bar after collecting a cross from Alexandre Lacazette at the back post and a deflected Alex Iwobi strike forced Asmir Begovic to parry behind and concede a corner.The Gunners then had to wait until the 35th minute to threaten again, Begovic using his feet to deny Danny Welbeck one-on-one. Howe’s side finished the half strongly, though, Ryan Fraser drawing an important block from Calum Chambers and then testing Petr Cech, while Arsenal were perhaps fortunate not to concede a penalty for handball against Iwobi from a corner.The away team capitalised on that good fortune by taking the lead early in the second half, when Iwobi’s well-weighted throughball released Bellerin in behind the Bournemouth defence down the right. The Spaniard raced into the area and was able to squeeze a low finish under Begovic, who got a touch but could only succeed in making the ball loop up and bounce over the line.No player has scored more @premierleague goals than @HectorBellerin in 2018 #AFCBvAFC pic.twitter.com/aweUbAIY1c— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) January 14, 2018Undeterred, Bournemouth levelled in the 70th minute, a brilliant Fraser pass to the edge of the penalty area allowing Wilson to steer a sharp, first-time finish past Cech, who had charged off his line.Four minutes later it was 2-1, Ibe running onto Wilson’s lay-off and firing home a fierce strike to open his league account for the club.Wenger introduced Theo Walcott, another player who has been linked with a move away from north London, in an attempt to salvage something from the game.But the visitors proved unable to apply significant pressure in the closing stages, Bournemouth remaining resolute to record a victory that could prove crucial to their survival hopes.WHAT A WIN! #BOUARS | #afcb pic.twitter.com/J11BQzyS9U— AFC Bournemouth (@afcbournemouth) January 14, 2018Key Opta Stats:- Bournemouth have recorded their first win against a side from the ‘big six’ in the Premier League since December 2016 (4-3 v Liverpool), ending runs of 14 winless games (D3 L11) and nine successive losses.- Arsenal have picked up just 13 points after 12 Premier League away games (W3 D4 L5) – their worst record at this stage of a season since 2005-06 (12 from 12).- The Cherries have won their first ever game against Arsenal in all competitions (D1 L5).- Arsenal have lost the last three Premier League games that Alexis Sanchez has not played any part in – 0-1 at Stoke, 1-2 at Watford and this game.- At average age of 25 years and 56 days old, Arsene Wenger named his youngest Arsenal starting line-up in the Premier League since November 2012 v Aston Villa (25y 11d).- Callum Wilson has scored three goals in three Premier League games against the Gunners, and also recorded his first ever top-flight assist when setting up Jordon Ibe for the winning goal. read more
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has condemned racial slur made at Scott Sinclair during the Scottish League Cup final.McInnes has slammed the Aberdeen fan who racially abused the Celtic player, but he insists it was a situation regarding an individual rather than a widespread problem for the Pittodrie club.Sinclair revealed his disappointments regarding the situation on social media after seeing a video of the racial slur aimed at him as he had a penalty saved during his club’s 1-0 win at Hampden.Aberdeen defender Shay Logan, who was himself a victim of racial slurs that saw Celtic winger Aleksandar Tonev banned for seven games in 2014, also called the Sinclair incident an utter disgrace.“If using the skin colour of somebody is what you have to do to try to offend a fellow human being you are losing in life,” said Logan, according to the Scotsman.Derek McInnes insists there isn’t a Premiership title race yet Henry Ikenna Ugwu – January 12, 2019 Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes believes there is no title race despite his side being one of the favourites to lift the Ladbrokes Premiership trophy…“BLACK WHITE ASIAN we are all the same.”McInnes also shares the views of his players as Aberdeen the fan will be punished duly once identifiedHe said: “Any racial abuse, in this day and age, is shocking. It’s embarrassing for the individual. It’s not a club issue for me. It’s the individual.”“That type of comment was maybe normal practice in the Sixties and Seventies, and it was appalling then and shocking then, and even more so now. It’s shocking that Scott Sinclair and any other player is still subjected to that.”
Li announced he was moving on from Re/code in February. In this case, the media shuffle comes full circle, as Li’s replacement at Re/code, Dan Frommer, joined the site from Quartz, where he was technology editor. “Over the past few months we have been strategically restructuring the company in order to adapt to the changes in the market and to insure IBT Media has a strong path to continued growth,” wrote CEO Etienne Uzac and CCO Johnathan Davis in a staff memo addressing the layoffs. “In these ever shifting and challenging times within our industry, we are responsible for sustaining and reinventing our company as best we can.” “As Kira Bindrim heads to Quartz, we are thrilled to welcome Ken into the Newsweek family and eager to have his sharp news sense and digital savvy guiding our operations,” said Newsweek editor-in-chief, Jim Impoco, in a statement. “Ken’s background includes a great mix of writing, editing and strong newsroom leadership that are critical for the managing editor role.” Newsweek wasted little time naming Bindrim’s replacement. Li had been with Re/code since its inception as a relaunch of the now-defunct AllThingsD.com in early 2014 and served in prior editorial roles at Thompson Reuters, Financial Times, and The Industry Standard, beginning his career as a tech reporter for the New York Daily News in 1996. Moviegoers can thank Li for allegedly inspiring “The Fast and the Furious” film franchise with an article in the May, 1998 issue of Vibe about street racing in New York City. Kira Bindrim Newsweek’s managing editor, Kira Bindrim, revealed today that she is leaving the magazine to join Atlantic Media as editor of Quartz’s newly formed Talent Lab, a global network aimed at discovering and developing new reporters. It’s been an interesting few months at IBT Media, which debuted redesigned websites for both Newsweek and International Business Times in December. Rumors of financial issues, missed payments, and disgruntled employees soon followed, culminating in the dismissal of at least 15 staffers last month. As part of the Ken Li announcement, Newsweek revealed a series of other staff changes. Kevin Dolak was promoted from executive editor, digital to national editor, overseeing 2016 election coverage. Social media director, Margarita Noriega, will step into Dolak’s previous role, while Iva Dixit will take over as social media editor. It’s true! After a 100 time at NW, I’m heading to @qz as editor of the nascent Talent Lab. SO excited to welcome @kenli729 as ME of @Newsweek! — Kira Bindrim (@KiraBind) April 25, 2016 Ken Li, founding editor-in-chief of Re/code, will take over as managing editor of Newsweek, overseeing day-to-day operations for the website and weekly magazine, according to an announcement this morning. Bindrim had served as Newsweek’s managing editor since 2013, around the time the brand was acquired by IBT Media, and helped oversee its return to print media the following year. Prior to Newsweek, Bindrim held roles at Thompson Reuters and Crain’s New York.
While praising the Air Force’s stationing process for new units and missions, the House Armed Services Committee lists the factors it believes the service should consider when making basing decisions for remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) units, according to language in the committee report accompanying the fiscal 2017 defense authorization bill.The Air Force should assess:the ability of a military installation and its associated or adjacent training areas to support the unit or mission;the capacity of a military installation to accommodate the unit or mission;the costs associated with the stationing, basing or laydown action; andencroachment and environmental considerations.“Further, the committee is supportive of basing criteria that leverage available Air Force infrastructure and existing quality of life and base support facilities, and pairs RPA units with related missions,” the committee states.More generally, the committee said it was supportive of the Air Force’s strategic basing process as it “provides a thorough, consistent and transparent process for basing decisions.”The committee approved the annual defense policy bill April 28.

Fusing together some of the finest works from well established artists, the art exhibition at All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society aims to serve the audience a visual bonanza. Titled Genesis-18, the art show will be held from June 1-7. Genesis-18 is an exposition by 34 artists in a manner that traces a timeline of developments in style, themes and schools of what has emerged today as Indian contemporary art.The striking feature of the works of the participating artists is the manner in which they straddle diverse cultures whilst still voicing the present context of Indian social, cultural and political life. The canvases provide an introspective and sometimes uneasy glimpse into modern India, yet are collectively global in their presentation. This exhibition is a recognition of and respect for the influential antecedents of this genre of art. Clearly, the map has changed as these works demonstrate figurative and abstract, impatient yet unhurried, ancient spirituality fused with modern culture.It is amazing to discern the similarity in the direction of thoughts of all artists, coming from diverse milieus and diverse backgrounds.
