first_imgAlexandre Lacazette would do “very well at Barcelona”, says Claude Puel, with the former Lyon boss seeing similarities between the Arsenal striker and Luis Suarez.A move to Camp Nou has been mooted for the France international.It has been suggested that the 28-year-old is among those being considered by the Liga champions as they seek to bring another No. 9 onto their books. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Lacazette is a proven performer in that position and would be a useful alternative, or successor to Uruguayan frontman Suarez in Catalunya.He has just been named Arsenal’s Player of the Season for 2018-19, recording 19 goals and 13 assists, while previously being a prolific presence in his homeland at Lyon.Puel was the man to give him his senior bow and has told El Pais of a top talent: “Lacazette can be a player like Luis Suarez. “He can go into the midfield a little and ask to get the ball in space. For me, he could do very, very well in Barcelona. “Suarez’s problem is that he has lost some physical condition. He was more powerful and started more. Not now. “He knows how to get away, go deep and ask for the ball, because he is a scorer. But you need something more. “With Guardiola, Barca played 80 per cent of the game in the opposition half of the field. Now they accept playing a low block. When you are so deep, you need a striker to hold the ball when you get it to allow the team to advance. Suarez loses the ball continuously.”Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal 2018-19While suggesting that Lacazette could be the man to improve Barcelona’s forward line, Puel admits that he did not always see him as a team player.He added on his first experiences of a Lyon native: “I went to see him play with the Lyon reserve team. He never ran, he never asked for the ball, he did not move into space, he did not defend. Nothing, nothing, nothing.“He did nothing in 90 minutes. But he scored a goal and he was happy. For him, that amounted to a good game. “He had a great character. It was difficult to make him understand that he needed to work, run, ask for the ball in space. “First, I made him play as a forward because we had many strikers. Then I put him up top so that when he won the ball, he needed time holding it until the others arrived.“He has everything that a scorer needs. He is small, but that is not a problem for him. He has progressed a lot without the ball. Run, work for the team. He has become a complete player.”last_img read more

According to the Las Vegas Sun, University of Nevada, Las Vegas quarterback Armani Rogers is out indefinitely.Rogers reportedly suffered a toe injury in the team’s loss to Arkansas State over the weekend. As a result, head coach Tony Sanchez revealed that Rogers will be out “indefinitely”It’s a tough blow for the Rebels, who sit at 2-2 on the season after Saturday’s loss. Sophomore Max Gilliam will take over as the team’s starter while Rogers is out.Here’s more from the report:The expected timeline for Rogers’ injury — a torn plantar plate — is about six weeks, though UNLV head coach Tony Sanchez didn’t want to put a timeline on Rogers’ return.“Best-case scenario, maybe six weeks,” Sanchez said. “It could be longer or shorter, but right now we’ll put the ‘indefinitely’ on it.”Rogers not only leads the team in passing, but he also is the team’s leading rusher after four games.Gilliam kicked off his college career at Cal before transferring to Saddleback College. At Saddleback last year, he completed 69.7 percent of his passes for 1,185 yards and 10 touchdowns with seven interceptions.[Las Vegas Sun]last_img read more

But before the game, one Notre Dame fan got to experience something amazing (and possibly terrifying) that had nothing to do with the game.During the national anthem at AT&T Stadium, a bald eagle was released into the stadium. But the eagle had to land somewhere, and chose the shoulder of a surprised Notre Dame fan in the crowd.Video footage of the incredible moment quickly flooded the internet.You can see one of the best angles from this video, from Sports Illustrated.You can see the Notre Dame fan trying to avoid touching the eagle, either to keep from getting sliced up by its talons or to avoid injuring the bird.As for the Notre Dame football team, the Fighting Irish started well-enough against the reigning ACC champions.After Clemson scored a field goal early in the first quarter, Brian Kelly’s team answered with a field goal of their own.The teams are tied 3-3 at 4:26 in the first quarter.Stay tuned.last_img read more

first_imgA generic view of a goal line marker.(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)The Alliance of American Football made its debut just over two weeks ago and has been dominating the headlines since. While most of the news has been positive, a new report suggested the AAF had trouble paying its players.According to a report, the AAF failed to pay its players for the first week of competition. The AAF released a statement, calling the non-payment a “glitch” in the system rather than a lack of funds.Regardless, it’s a bad look for the new league as it looks to gain legitimacy as a developmental league for the NFL. Former draft busts and college football stars looking to get back in the good graces of the NFL will have to fight through the new league’s struggles in its inaugural season.One of the biggest names in the AAF is former Alabama star Trent Richardson.The former No. 3 overall pick failed to make it in the NFL and now he’s struggling in the AAF.Richardson is averaging just 2.4 yards per carry this season – though he does have three touchdowns in two games.He’s hardly the only former college star struggling. Former Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg is completing just 50-percent of his passes and hasn’t thrown a touchdown yet this season.It’ll be a tough road back to the NFL for both players.last_img read more

first_imgSamsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10+: Punch hole display, smaller chin and all the rumours so farWhile Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Samsung Galaxy S10 are expected to come with a single front camera, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ is said to come with a dual front-facing camera setup.advertisement Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiJanuary 5, 2019UPDATED: January 11, 2019 09:48 IST HIGHLIGHTSSamsung Galaxy S10 will come with a reverse wireless charging feature that will charge other compatible devices.Galaxy S10 will feature Infinity-O punch hole display with a circular cutout on the top right corner.Galaxy S10 will get a 3,500mAh battery, while Galaxy S10+ will house a large 4,000mAh battery.The Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy S10+ are just a few weeks away from going official. According to a majority of reports doing the rounds, Samsung will announce the phones on February 20, ahead of MWC 2019. In fact, rumours, leaks and reports on the Galaxy S10 trio have been pouring in everyday, which can make it difficult for consumers to keep a track of. To help you out, we have decided to do a roundup of everything that is known about the Galaxy S10-series and we will update this page when a new report comes in.Update January 10: Samsung has confirmed its Unpacked event for February 20 where it will launch the rumoured Galaxy S10, S10 Lite and S10+. The company may also use the Unpacked stage to unveil its foldable Galaxy Fold smartphone.Update January 9: The Galaxy S10 Lite was spotted on Geekbench running a Snapdragon 855 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM. The phone should get additional memory variants as well. The listing also mentioned the phone running Android 9 Pie.On Thursday, tipster Evan Blass posted a live image of the regular Galaxy S10, codenamed Beyond 1. The image reveals the phone’s Infinity-O punch hole display with a circular cutout on the top right corner for the selfie camera. It also reveals that the chin bezel will be slightly thicker than the top bezel. In the same thread where Blass leaked the latest live image, he adds that the Galaxy S10 will come with a reverse wireless charging feature that will charge other compatible devices and watches, similar to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.advertisementA few hours later, another tipster who goes by Ice Universe posted an image showing transparent back covers of the Galaxy S10, S10 Lite and S10+ along their screen sizes and battery capacity. The Lite model will house a 3,100mAh battery, while the regular Galaxy S10 will get a 3,500mAh capacity and the Plus-sized version will house a large 4,000mAh battery like last year’s Galaxy Note 9.What we know so farThe Galaxy S10 will be the middle model and is expected to sport a 6.1-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display. The Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy S10+ are said to come with 5.8-inch and 6.4-inch AMOLED Infinity-O displays, respectively. Moreover, the Lite model will also be the only one among the three to get a flat AMOLED display. The other two models will get typical dual curved edges.Additionally, while the Galaxy S10 Lite and the regular S10 are expected to come with a single front camera, the Plus model is said to come with dual front-facing cameras, so we expect to see a pill-shaped cutout on the display to accommodate two sensors. A render (as shown above) by concept designer Ben Geskin shows how the display hole on the S10+ will look different to the other two variants. The Galaxy S10, S10 Lite and S10 Plus should get the latest Exynos 9820 or Snapdragon 855 chipset depending on the market. They are all rumoured to come with One UI based on Android Pie out-of-the-box and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. The Galaxy S10 Lite will also be the only phone among the three to offer a side fingerprint sensor rather than an ultrasonic in-display one.Apart from the size of the displays, the Galaxy S10 trio are also expected to differ with regards to the number of cameras. The Galaxy S10 Lite is rumoured to come with dual rear cameras and a single front-facing camera. The regular Galaxy S10 is said to come with triple rear cameras and a single selfie cameras. Lastly, the Galaxy S10+ may get a quad camera system on the back and dual front-facing cameras.Samsung may not be going with gradient colours for the Galaxy S10 phones like it did with the Galaxy A9 (2018). Instead, tipster Ice Universe claims the phones will have “gorgeous and lustrous” solid colours, hinting that one of them could be an Emerald Green colour.Samsung Galaxy S10 expected priceAs of a report in December, the tentative pricing of the Galaxy S10 Lite is said to be 699 pounds (approx Rs 63,000). Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 with 128GB of internal storage will cost 799 pounds while the 512GB model will be priced at 999 pounds (approx Rs 90,000). Lastly, we have the Galaxy S10+ which is said to start at 899 pounds (approx Rs 81,000) for the 128GB variant. The phone is also expected to come in 512GB and a whopping 1TB storage variant priced at 1,099 pounds (approx Rs 99,000) and 1,399 pounds (approx Rs 1,26,000), respectively.advertisementALSO READ: | Samsung Galaxy S10 live image reveals punch hole camera and thinner bezelsALSO READ: | Samsung foldable phone may come with triple cameras like the Galaxy A7 (2018)ALSO READ: | Samsung Galaxy S10 base variant rumoured to come with flat OLED display, colour variants leak outGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

The Capitals were cruising towards a 167-run target but they lost their last seven wickets for eight runs to slump to their second defeat in as many games.Delhi Capitals, on Thursday, will face another stern test as they host Sunrises Hyderabad at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Sunrisers have landed in Delhi on the back of a two-match winning streak, which includes a 118-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore on March 31.Sunrisers Hyderabad will be hoping to make it three wins in as many matches and they will gain confidence from their excellent record at the Capitals’ home ground Feroz Shah Kotla.In seven matches, the Sunrisers have won five at the iconic venue. In fact, their win percentage at Kotla is 71.42, which is better than their record at home (66.66). Sunrisers have a positive head-to-head record of 8-4 against the Delhi Capitals in IPL.The Sunrisers completed a double over Delhi Capitals (then Delhi Daredevils) in IPL 2018, clinching big wins on both occasions. At the Kotla, Rishabh Pant’s dazzling hundred had helped the Daredevils post 187 on the board but a 176-run unbeaten stand between Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson saw the Sunrisers gun down the target with seven balls to spare.Will in-form Warner, Bairstow continue fine form?The Delhi Capitals need a solid bowling performance on Thursday if they are to stop the Sunrisers Hyderabad juggernaut. In fact, David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, the two SRH openers, have stitched 100-plus stands in all the three matches they have played so far in IPL 2019.advertisementNotably, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have not lost a wicket in the powerplay overs in all their three matches and they are the only team to have done so.However, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be concerned about their bowling unit, especially pace leader Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s form. The India pacer is yet to open his account in IPL 2019 and has conceded aplenty. In fact, he didn’t even complete his quota of four overs in their big win over Royal Challengers Bangalore.On the other hand, Delhi Capitals’ veteran leg-spinner Amit Mishra is eyeing a major landmark as he will become only the second bowler after Lasith Malinga to pick up 150 wickets in IPL cricket if he adds one more to his tally. Mishra was rested for the Kings XI Punjab tie on April 1 but expect the leg-spinner to be back in the playing XI when Delhi play their fifth match of the season on Thursday.Also Read | Jos Buttler reacts to R Ashwin Mankading incident: The wrong decision was madeAlso Read | There are some chinks in Virat Kohli’s batting against spinners: VVS LaxmanAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

The legendary Australian leg-spinner has inspired quite a few young cricketers across the globe and Mumbai Indians’ teenage leggie Rahul Chahar is no exception.Rahul Chahar did not think twice before saying “Shane Warne” when he was asked who his role model was during a post-match press conference in Chennai on Friday.”I think Shane Warne (my idol). When I was young, my coach and uncle used to bring his DVDs and show his highlights to me. I started watching and learning from him when I was eight years old,” Rahul Chahar said after Mumbai Indians’ 46-run win over Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.Rahul Chahar put the brakes on Chennai Super Kings’ scoring rate in Mumbai Indians’ defence of 155 on a slow turner in Chennai. Despite not picking up a wicket, the 19-year-old leg-spinner just conceded 21 runs in his four-over quota.It’s no surprise that Rahul Chahar has impressed his captain Rohit Sharma. The leg-spinner has been one of the breakout performers of IPL 2019. After getting a chance earlier in the season when first-choice MI spinner Mayank Markande was sidelined with an injury, Rahul Chahar stepped up and made the most of the opportunities that has come his way.With 9 wickets from 8 matches, the young leg-spinner has sealed his spot in the star-studded Mumbai Indians playing XI. More importantly, Rahul has conceded at a miserly economy rate of 6.43.advertisementRahul, who made his IPL debut for Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017, is much like the modern-day leg-spinner who prefers to bowl with some pace.Ellaborating on his preference for being slightly quicker in the air, Rahul Chahar said: “Since childhood I was also told that the times are changing and bowling slower won’t be as effective as it was in the past. Since childhood, I was told that I should focus on getting turn while bowling faster.”Rahul Chahar also credited the Mumbai Indians support staff for being there whenever he has needed them. The 19-year-old pointed out the backing he has been receiving from Shane Bond and Zaheer Khan in IPL 2019.”I was with Mumbai Indians last season as well and I got the opportunity to learn a lot through my coaches such as Shane Bone. Zaheer Khan has also helped me a lot,” Rahul added.”Slowly I am starting to gain confidence as I am bowling well in the ongoing season. Shane Bond and Zaheer Khan have backed me well. During net sessions, they guide me. Whenever I need them, they are there.”Also Read | Rahul Chahar a smart guy, love his attitude, says RohitAlso Read | MS Dhoni’s absence quite a big void: Stephen Fleming after MI crush CSKAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
