Arsenal pile pressure on struggling Everton with big win at Goodison

Read fully:
The pressure on Everton manager Ronald Koeman increased as his side dropped into the relegation zone after a 5-2 defeat to Arsenal at Goodison Park.

Arsenal made by far the brighter start against opponents whose lack of confidence was soon apparent, and the visitors were almost ahead after only four minutes.

The chance came when Alexis Sanchez found Mesut Ozil, who freed Aaron Ramsey for a strike that was well stopped by home keeper Jordan Pickford.

Seconds later, Pickford dashed out to close down Sanchez as the Chile international found space near the byline, and Arsenal fashioned a third opportunity after only 11 minutes when Hector Bellerin crossed for Alexandre Lacazette to force Pickford into further action.

But the visitors' early dominance was to prove in vain when, a minute later, Everton took the lead through a superb goal from Wayne Rooney.

Granit Xhaka was closed down quickly inside his own half by Idrissa Gueye, and Rooney picked up possession to curl a great fin…

Kaduna Govt declares ASUU strike unlawful

Gov. Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State on Friday declared as unlawful the strike embarked on by the Kaduna State University (KASU) branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Who do you think will between Olamide, Wizkid, Mayokun and Davido

A hit track without any award or nomination is nothing but punishment of talent and chastisement of the artiste. The year 2017 has been a hit-packed year so far in the Nigeria’s music scene.

Considering the waves these songs have created, the possibility that these songs will make it into Best Pop Single of the year is very high. Now, let’s be sincere, if “Wo” by Olamide, “IF” by Davido, “Come Closer” by wizkid and “Mama” by Mayorkun are nominated for best Pop Song of the year award, who do you think will win? Dr…
