Man U 1-1 Arsenal: Battle Of Former EPL Giants Ends In Embarrassing, Boring Draw! : Analysis/Photos

Published

Man U Vs Arsenal

Monday night’s clash between Manchester United and Arsenal deserved only one title, one crown, one nametag, and that’s the most boring game of matchweek 7.

A clash that had always been seen as a fight between two European heavyweights and EPL title contenders in the past, is now as a clash between two Europa League constants fighting for 5th to 6th place supremacy in the Epl, with head coaches looking lost in a tunnel and team line-ups looking more like youth teams than premier league standard starting line-up.

Man U coach, Ole Gunnaer Solksjaer, with only 2 EPL wins this season, started wiith a front three of Lingard, Rashford and Daniel James with Martial ruled out through injury, while Arsenal had to make do with Pierre Aubameyang upfront with Lacazette missing through injury.

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka became the youngest Arsenal player to feature against United in the Premier League era while Rob Holding made the bench.

The game started in dour fashion with no love lost between both sides but Arsenal looking the more threatening while Man U waited on the wings to counter in the break. The first 25 minutes was boring and produced no real end products with both sides ready to sit back, study each other and attack any opportunites given.

Pogba, surprisingly back from injury, kept feeding balls to Rashhford who was wateful and played prematurely all evening, oh how much Ole would have regretted letting Lukaku go without signing a capable replacement. De Gea, capped off the first half with a wonderful save, making a great double stop to deny Saka and Guendouzi.

At stoppage time,  James ran down the right end with an overhit cross, suprisingly Rashford kept the ball alive, gave the ball to Pogba, who was too far off, but young scot McTominay lashed into the top corner past an unaware and dazed Leno.

Halftime – Man U 1- 0 Arsenal

The second half, seemed like a moment of reckoning for London club, Arsenal who wanted to attack with the three p’s – Pace, panache and perseverance.

Tuanzebi, who came in as a replacement for Wan Bissaka, and surprisingly took the left-back spot, showed his inexperience when he gave the ball away on the edge of his own box, which Saka pounced on to Aubameyang who chipped over a less than impressed De Gea. The whole stadium feared he was offside, the linesman called him offside, Aubameyang must have even feared he was offside, but upon consultation with VAR, it was a beautiful finish and the Gabonese striker was clearly onside.

The game remained a back and forth affair, with a draw looking like a more permissible result than a win for any of the sides and apart from the last few minutes when Leno made a fine one-handed save to deny Rashford’s free kick, the game was shy of clear-cut chances.

Take away from the game: Arsenal’s defensive line-up will even allow goals from Burnley’s under-10 while Man U needs a striker as much as Boris Johnson needs Brexit.

Coronavirus Can Spread Through Surfaces And Objects Such As Desks And Telephones : WHO

Published

on

The World Health Organization (WHO) has called for the promotion of regular and thorough hand-washing hygiene, adding that the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) can be contracted when someone infected coughs or exhales.

The global health body released a statement on February 27 titled ” Getting your workplace ready for COVID-19″. In the document, WHO warned that people can contract the virus if droplets of infected fluid falls on nearby surfaces and objects such as desks, tables or telephones.

The statement reads in part: “People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth – and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.

“If they are standing within one meter of a person with COVID-19 they can catch it by breathing in droplets coughed out or exhaled by them.

“In other words, COVID-19 spreads in a similar way to flu. Most persons infected with COVID-19 experience mild symptoms and recover. However, some go on to experience more serious illness and may require hospital care.

“Risk of serious illness rises with age: people over 40 seem to be more vulnerable than those under 40. People with weakened immune systems and people with conditions such as diabetes, heart and lung disease are also more vulnerable to serious illness.”

The document went on to list ways to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the workplace.

The document states: “Make sure your workplaces are clean and hygienic, surfaces (e.g. desks and tables) and objects (e.g. telephones, keyboards) need to be wiped with disinfectant regularly.

“Why? Because contamination on surfaces touched by employees and customers is one of the main ways that COVID-19 spreads.

“Promote regular and thorough hand-washing by employees, contractors and customers.

“Put sanitizing hand rub dispensers in prominent places around the workplace. Make sure these dispensers are regularly refilled. Display posters promoting hand-washing, ask your local public health authority for these or look on www.WHO.int.

“Make sure that staff, contractors and customers have access to places where they can wash their hands with soap and water. Why? Because washing kills the virus on your hands and prevents the spread of COVID-19.

“Promote good respiratory hygiene in the workplace. Display posters promoting respiratory hygiene. Combine this with other communication measures such as offering guidance from occupational health and safety officers, briefing at meetings and information on the internet, etc.

“Ensure that face masks and/or paper tissues are available at your workplaces, for those who develop a runny nose or cough at work, along with closed bins for hygienically disposing of them.

“Why? Because good respiratory hygiene prevents the spread of COVID-19. Advise employees and contractors to consult national travel advice before going on business trips.

“Brief your employees, contractors and customers that if COVID-19 starts spreading in your community, anyone with even a mild cough or low-grade fever (37.3 C or more) needs to stay at home.”

WHO further advised that “employers should start doing these things now, even if COVID-19 has not arrived in the communities where they operate.”0

Published

Ghana

A Ghanaian lady who introduced herself as Auntie Kiki in a video attached to this story has sparked a wild debate online after she dropped a controversial statement that has since not gone done well with the slay queens and the lazy ass girls.

Auntie Kiki argued that girls should be responsible and work hard rather than depending solely on men, especially only texting them only when they are in need.

She said: “Auntie Kiki wants to clear a couple of things for you guys okay? I’m not going to be harsh on anybody. I’m just expressing a couple of truths. Young ladies, if you only text a certain guy because you want something from him, look at me I want you to know, you are a thief, big thief.”
