That’s why it’s imperative we get Aouar from Lyon.‘He’s someone that can get on the ball and get the forwards going. you saw the chances that Ceballos made when he came on. that’s what Arsenal need.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

If they can’t get that player this is what will happen. We can beat the likes of Fulham but when it’s that type of calibre of team you’ll see Arsenal struggle.’center_img Comment Houssem Aouar is a target for Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes his former club will experience more defeats like their loss to Liverpool if they fail to sign Lyon playmaker Houssem Aouar before the transfer window closes. The Gunners were beaten 3-1 by the Premier League champions at Anfield, despite taking the lead through Alexandre Lacazette in the first half.Arteta selected Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Willian and Lacazette in attack but the Gunners were pinned back for much of the game and the latter failed to take the side’s biggest chance of the game in the second half.The Gunners’ display improved significantly following the introduction of Dani Ceballos from the bench as Arsenal had a more attack-minded central midfielder to play through, as opposed to Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny.ADVERTISEMENT Advertisementlast_img read more

Pollard criticised after no-ball denies Evin Lewis chance of century

first_imgKIERON Pollard has been criticised on social media after bowling a no-ball which denied opposition batsman Evin Lewis the chance of a century in a Caribbean Premier League (CPL).Pollard bowled a big no-ball when Lewis was on 97 off 32 balls, with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots needing one run to beat Barbados Tridents in the Twenty20 competition.The no-ball gave 25-year-old Lewis’ side the win but saw him miss out on the chance of a ton after he and captain Chris Gayle reached 129-0.Cricket statistician and journalist Mazher Arshad said: “So Kieron Pollard bowls a no-ball to deny Evin Lewis a hundred in CPL. Suraj Randiv was suspended for a match when he did that to (Virender) Sehwag in 2010.”Cricket supporter Mainraj Paudel called Pollard’s actions a “shameless act” on Twitter, while another spectator, Abhishek Chaturvedi, accused Pollard of showing “zero sportsmanship”.Lewis, however, was more diplomatic.In a televised post-match interview, he said: “It hurts (missing out on the hundred), but hitting 97 not out off 33 balls? I’ll take that any day.“I’ve been hitting the ball long and hard in the nets. I’m confident now and looking forward to the play-offs.”If Lewis had completed his century in 33 balls, it would have been the second fastest of all-time – just behind Chris Gayle’s 30-ball IPL knock in 2013.(BBC Sport)last_img read more
