The Gunners started their Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon in fourth place and 12 points behind leaders Chelsea. More than half of his twenty year stint in the Arsenal dug-out has been spent laying the groundwork for future success: nurturing young talent instead of buying ready-made stars, selling his best players to finance the club's new stadium.
Also, her face. In preparation for her fight against Amanda Nunes Friday, she is staying strong and silent. Rousey is a favourite, but only a slight one: around 7-5, which translates to only about a 58 percent chance of winning. "I'm stopping everybody like that". When I asked for this fight, I knew everything. I prepared my body and spirit for this moment. Rousey is one of the UFC's biggest draws and her comeback has been highly anticipated despite not really featuring in media coverage ...
Ryan's production wasn't bad in his near two full seasons in Western New York as he finished 8-8 in 2015 and 7-8 this time around. The loss not only officially eliminated the team from the playoffs, but also rid them of finishing with a winning record.

Allowing the Packers to pile up nearly 300 yards by halftime and put the game on cruise control to close out the win in the second half had a lot of players and coaches scratching their heads. I don't feel the Packers have to pile up points to win a shootout because Minnesota has trouble scoring (25th). During the off-season he set high goals, challenging his teammates to make have a Super Bowl 51 or bust season, and challenging himself to rush for 2,500 yards, crushing the National ...
The latest episode in the seemingly never to be concluded saga is the not all all Christmasy message the MMA star had for Mayweather on Instagram .

Moussa Sissoko believes the strength of Tottenham's squad will be key to securing a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.
Popovich's remarks are better watched than written about, but he joked about bringing carrot cake to Duncan's hotel room for 20 years and remembered deciding with San Antonio general manager R.C. I don't know if he was right, or if I latched onto a random mid-January game and anxious too much. Able to dominate while being both a fiery and humble competitor, the modest, mild-mannered Duncan, Brown feels, sets an example worth following.
Free safety George Iloka intercepted the pass and returned 21 yards to the Browns' 26. The Bengals now have their first winning streak of the season, courtesy of the Eagles and Browns. He didn't have surgery but missed the next 11 games. But, the Browns just weren't good enough actually get back in it. Boyd had picked up 10 across the middle on the previous snap facing a second-and-19 courtesy of a sack by linebacker Cam Johnson running past Winston.
Mkhitaryan, however, says United are not willing to divert their focus away from the top flight in favour of their campaigns in the Europa League, the EFL Cup and the FA Cup.

Franklin attended last year's Big Ten championship game as a commentator for Fox Sports and "took a bunch of notes " that he hoped would help him for situations just like this weekend, Penn State's first trip to the title contest. Offensively, Penn State started slow, but it is moving the ball well now. And while Penn State hasn't changed its approach of one-game-at-a-time mentality, some Nittany Lions have shared their expectations for the matchup.
Standing in their way will be a resolute and gritty Burnley side. Silva levelled just before the interval but the second half proved a disjointed affair after Lars Stindl for the hosts and Fernandinho for City were both sent off for second bookable offences.
Ahead of the result being announced, Farage said without UKIP there would have been no referendum in June when 52 per cent of Britons voted to leave the EU. Earlier, Farage said it had been a "difficult" summer for the party. But more imminently, he was this week "going off to the United States of America - but you will understand, purely as a tourist".
Both Thunder big men corralled several key rebounds late in the fourth quarter of Oklahoma City's 112-103 win over the Knicks, snuffing out any chance of a rally from NY.

Elephants don't beef with ants. "If you're saying he's the Floyd Mayweather of the MMA, I'm trying to find out: Has he ever made $300 million in one night?" Instead it goes to the UFC, which keeps the whole machinery going so more people like McGregor can come up and make their millions.
Baldwin and Wilson recognized New England's defense: cover zero, meaning man-to-man coverage and no lurking help from safeties deep. Despite that fact, it was a poor decision. Seattle hosts Philadelphia next Sunday, while patriots travel to San Francisco. James White has done a more than satisfactory job of filling in in his absence, but Lewis just brings something else to the table that the Patriots haven't seen yet.
He made five of 12 shots for 10 points while hauling in 14 rebounds. "We definitely need to make the most of being at home and protect home court as much as we can, " said Magic point guard Elfrid Payton , who has been a bright spot of late with his aggressive play.
