Lacazette’s double helps Arsenal return to top half Sheffield0:3Arsenal

AFRICA, Arsenal, EAST AFRICA, EUROPEAN UNION, Football, FUFA, HUMAN INTEREST STORIES, INTERNATIONAL, Sheffield United, UGANDA, UK, WORLD
Striker's brace and Gabriel Martinelli finish gives the Gunners a 3-0 win over Sheff Utd Alexandre Lacazette's brace either side of a Gabriel Martinelli strike gave Arsenal a 3-0 victory over Sheffield United which lifts the Gunners into the top half of the Premier League table. Arsenal had the better of the first-half chances, Martinelli finding the side-netting and later forcing goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale into a smart save. And they took the lead when Bukayo Saka and Dani Ceballos exchanged passes before the latter produced an exquisite flick for Lacazette to round off a fine team move on 33 minutes. Ramsdale then parried Nicolas Pepe's shot into Martinelli's path for a tap-in before Lacazette completed the scoring late on when played through on goal.  ...

Cavani helps Man Utd to comeback win at Spurs TOT1:MAN U3

Late goals by Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood earned Manchester United a 3-1 comeback win at Tottenham Hotspur that reduces the gap to leaders Manchester City. Cavani thought he had given the visitors a first-half lead but the goal was overturned by referee Chris Kavanagh, following a Video Assistant Referee review, for a Scott McTominay foul on Son Heung-min in the build-up.  Son opened the scoring after 40 minutes, converting Lucas Moura's squared pass for his 14th league goal of the season. Fred then reacted quickest to a Hugo Lloris parry to fire in a 57th-minute equaliser from close range. Spurs went close to retaking the lead as Son and Harry Kane forced saves from the legs of Dean Henderson but Cavani headed in a superb Greenwood cross with 11 minute...

Kai Havertz put Chelsea ahead in the ninth minute, firing in his second Premier League goal. The German turned provider two minutes later, playing in Pulisic, who finished into the roof of the net. Kurt Zouma headed in a third on the half-hour to take his season's tally to five goals, making him the highest-scoring defender. It was almost 4-0 on 34 minutes, but Antonio Rudiger's header was cleared off the line by Patrick van Aanholt. Christian Benteke pulled a goal back on 63 minutes, but any hopes of a Palace fightback were dashed by Pulisic's se...

Stuart Dallas's stoppage-time winner earned 10-man Leeds United a shock 2-1 victory at leaders Manchester City. City dominated early possession, with Raheem Sterling missing the best chance when he shot wide. Against the run of play, Leeds led on 42 minutes through Dallas's low shot. But they were reduced to 10 men just 280 seconds later, as Liam Cooper was shown a red card after a VAR review for a reckless challenge on Gabriel Jesus. City bossed the second half, with Leeds having just 22 per cent possession, and Ferran Torres equalised with 14 minutes remaining. But in the first minute of stoppage time, Ezgjan Alioski's through-ball found Dallas, who slotted past Ederson. Leeds rise to ninth, with 45 points. City's fourth defeat of the season leaves them on ...

WaterAid Uganda’s media report  The impact of climate change on people’s water supplies is being overlooked – threatening to put progress on bringing clean water to all back decades unless urgent action is taken to help the world’s poorest communities adjust to changing weather patterns. WaterAid’s latest report: “Turn the Tide: The state of the world’s water 2021” shows how people are losing access to clean water as longer droughts dry up springs, seawater infiltrates groundwater supplies and landslides take out water pumps. The international development organisation shows that investing in water systems that provide a reliable supply whatever the weather, is a frontline defence against the impact of climate change. In the crucial battle to reduce current and future glob...
