Match Reports, 21 hours ago Australian pacers leave Pakistan in tatters

Pakistan's opening partnership could not survive through to the dinner break as Starc removed Azhar for 5 thanks to a brilliant diving catch in the slips from Usman Khawaja and the rest of the order followed after the break. Riaz (4-89) and Amir (4-97) picked up most of the Australian wickets. Here's the evidence that would have ended Steve Smith's day. The Australian captain was dropped on 53 by Sarfraz off Azhar's offspin, and on 97 he survived in freaky circumstances when a faint ... Read More

Koeman sends message to Everton fans on Twitter ahead of Arsenal game

Koeman sends message to Everton fans on Twitter ahead of Arsenal game

I am really disappointed because Clattenberg was in a very good position to see that they headed the ball out. Despite going 1-0 down through a Charlie Adam spot kick, Arsenal kicked into gear. "Their weakness is if you go face-to-face and win battles and you run and you go". Until now, they have been able to overcome one or two of those issues in the same game, but this time , they paid the price when all three reared their head. Read More

UFC 206: Max Holloway, 'Fighter To Watch' tonight in Toronto

Whether one buys the premise of an interim featherweight title bout, it's easy to see why Max Holloway is a big favorite against Anthony Pettis in the headline matchup for UFC 206 in Toronto on Saturday. Since that bout he has improved dramatically between each outing, most recently out-striking Ricardo Lamas at UFC 199 to claim a unanimous decision and climb above him in the rankings. Read More

In addition to Ozil, Sanchez , Giroud and Wilshere, Wenger is trying to tie down Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla, Per Mertesacker, Kieran Gibbs, Mathieu Debuchy and Wojciech Szczesny to new deals.
