Parlour reveals the one position Emery must strengthen at Arsenal

first_imgArsenal legend Ray Parlour has advised coach Unai Emery to consider a new centre-back in the January transfer windowSince replacing Arsene Wenger in the dugout at Arsenal, Emery has put a difficult start behind him by embarking on a 16-match unbeaten run in all competitions.However, in comparison to the top-four Premier League sides conceding 10 goals or less, Arsenal have already seen the ball go into their net 15 times in 12 games.Reflecting on this, Parlour suggested that Emery still needs to “strengthen” at centre-back.“I don’t know.

Sevilla gets smashed by Barcelona in Leo Messis house

first_imgWith a dominant 6-1 goal-fest, FC Barcelona was able to turn the result around against Sevilla on Lionel Messi’s return to action at Camp Nou.After FC Barcelona lost their first Copa del Rey leg against Sevilla without Lionel Messi on the roster, all the Catalan club’s supporters were eager to watch the Argentine play the return match at Camp Nou and confirm that they really do have him at the top of his game.It’s not only what the little man can do in regards of providing goals or assists, the whole squad functions at a different speed when he is playing on the pitch and today was the clear proof that this Barcelona side is one of the best in the world when Messi is in top form.Sevilla did what they could to prevent a debacle, but Leo was simply too much for them throughout the whole 90 minutes at Camp Nou.When you play against Barcelona in two matches and you get to play the first leg at your own stadium, you better score at least four goals against the Catalan club because Messi will almost always destroy you at his own house.The man started the festival by getting knocked down inside the box and conceding a penalty for his side, but he decided to let Philippe Coutinho take the shot from the spot so he could gain more confidence.FULL TIME: Barça complete the comeback, and then some, at Camp Nou! 👏👏👏Barça 6-1 Sevilla (6-3 agg.) 👉 Post-game stats and analysis: https://t.co/vler6GO4OI 🏆 #CopaBarça pic.twitter.com/qUm3dEu20X— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) January 30, 2019With a 1-0 advantage and still 75 minutes left to play, Barcelona was already on its way to a magical night in front of their crowd.Just a minute past the first half hour, Arthur Melo saw an opening where Ivan Rakitic made the move forward for an assist between the lines and scored the second goal of the evening.With the aggregate already equalized, the Catalan club went to the dressing rooms thinking that they would actually get the next-round ticket with very few problems at their own stadium.Just a few minutes after the second half started, Luis Suarez got involved in the game by assisting Philippe Coutinho with a low cross straight to his head and got Barcelona’s third goal of the evening.Things were turning up quite easy for the Catalan club, but Messi was yet to get involved in the party.The Argentine became part of the celebration with another pass between the lines for Sergi Roberto, the Catalan player was able to finish the play with a well-placed shot for his side’s fourth goal.But this momentary result was a double-edged sword against Barcelona because a goal from Sevilla would get the Andalusian squad back in the game, they got it through Ghilherme Arana after an Ever Banega assist.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.Barça overturn first leg deficit to storm into a NINTH consecutive #CopaDelRey semi-final! 💙🏆❤️@FCBarcelona 6-1 Sevilla FC (agg 6-3) pic.twitter.com/Ydh9bnCIhL— LaLiga (@LaLigaEN) January 30, 2019After Sevilla’s goal the ghosts from past seasons started emerging, the people at Camp Nou were starting to get nervous and a reaction was needed from the club’s biggest stars.Manager Ernesto Valverde was able to give the squad the reaction it needed with the substitutions he made in the last 15 minutes of the match.The boss gave Arturo Vidal a chance to play and took Ivan Rakitic out, he also took Coutinho out in order to give Semedo some minutes, and he finally granted Carles Aleña his chance by taking Arthur out of the game in the final minutes of the match.The wagers paid off, Luis Suarez scored the fifth goal of the evening in a counter-attack after Jordi Alba assisted him.But the cherry on top was destined for Messi, the Argentine finished a gorgeous collective effort in which several Barcelona players participated and the star of the evening was the one who closed the night with his side’s sixth goal.The Catalan club qualifies to the Copa del Rey semifinals in spectacular fashion, any club that meets them there should be very afraid of their impressive level of performance they have reached by this stage of the season.But there is one thing that cannot be denied, Barcelona is one squad with Messi and a completely different one without him.Vidal 👉Suarez 👉Pique 👉 Suarez 👉 Alba 👉 Messi ⚽️ GOLAZOTiki-taka at it’s best from @FCBarcelona! 🔥#CopaDelRey pic.twitter.com/P7Nta5THxi— LaLiga (@LaLigaEN) January 30, 2019What do you think about FC Barcelona’s goal-fest against Sevilla this evening in Copa del Rey?

Younger people more likely to get the H1N1 flu strain

H1N1 is affecting more young people this flu season.The San Diego County Department of Health and Human Services has reported more than 1,700 cases of influenza so far, with H1N1 comprising ten times the number of seasonal H3N2 cases. H1N1 is the same sub-type that was known as the pandemic “swine flu” in 2009.This year, H1N1 is striking again and the largest number of cases is occurring in people who are under the age of 40. Last year, most of the flu cases involved the H3N2 subtype and affected people who were older. Most of the deaths occured in people over the age of 65.However this season, about two-thirds of the people who are contracting the H1N1 virus are young and middle aged adults. Dr. Eric McDonald, the medical director for the County’s Epidemiology program said there are several reasons why younger people are more susceptible to the H1N1 virus.McDonald said people in those age groups have not had as much exposure to the virus as older adults. He said a second reason is that younger people have lower vaccination rates.“I think it’s just an issue of convenience and not thinking about it,” McDonald said, Of the nine deaths reported in San Diego County through December 29, 2018, two people were in their 40’s.One of those deaths was a confirmed case of H1N1. McDonald said it’s not too late to get a flu shot.If a person can’t visit a doctor’s office, he recommended going to a local pharmacy or one of the County’s public health centers.For more information on where to obtain the flu vaccine, you can call 211 or go online to the County’s immunization program website at sdiz.org.
