We want to finish as high as we can. We know it’s going to be a tough game.

Leno hopes Arsenal can win more away matches

first_imgThe Gunners goalkeeper knows that the only way their team will do great things is if they can also win while visiting others.In the 2018-2019 English Premier League season so far, Arsenal has only won four of 12 away matches.This is a big contrast on what has happened at Emirates Stadium, where the Gunners have gotten a victory in 10 of 13 games.And for goalkeeper Bernd Leno, the only way Arsenal can aim high, is if it starts winning away matches.“I think the game started very badly, with a goal. And it ended with a goal for Man City and I think in the first half we played very good and we conceded two easy goals,” he told the club’s official website.“In the second half, we didn’t have the power to play against them because they had the ball all the time and we were running.”“We fought until the end but today, Manchester City did a very good job,” he added.“Yes, of course. It was very hard. But the reaction of the team was brilliant.”“We scored the goal from a corner and I think it was the worst time to concede the second goal, just before half-time,” he commented.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“Yes, of course. We need wins like today, to go back to the top four but I think we are still in a good position to go to the top four.”“We still have big games and I think we need more away wins because at home we play very good,” he explained.“We win many games at home, but I think to go into the top four again we need more away wins.”German keeper Leno is in his first season with the Gunners after being transferred to the English Premier League from the German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen.He was an important piece of the U17, U18, U19, and U21 Nationalmannschaft but has had a difficult time to play first-team football in the senior squad.Here come the teams! 🙌🔵 🆚 🔴#MCIARS pic.twitter.com/tYcX8jef6U— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 3, 2019last_img read more

This video of Rohit Sharma doting on his daughter before IPL Final

first_imgRohit Sharma became a father to Samaira last yearRohit Sharma TwitterRohit Sharma is one of the best batsmen in limited-overs cricket and the captain of Mumbai Indians. But apart from this, the Mumbai cricketer also happens to be a doting father who is not hesitant to show his love for his newly-born daughter Samaira.With a day to go for the IPL Final, Rohit Sharma again took time off to play with his daughter. The official Twitter handle of his team Mumbai Indians, put out a video where the young father is showering his affection on Samaira. Daddy Ro reporting on duty ✅?#OneFamily #CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #MIvCSK @ImRo45 @ritssajdeh pic.twitter.com/0NWvqLtAha— Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) May 11, 2019Rohit Sharma playing with his daughterTwitter/Mumbai IndiansThis is not the first time that the India opener has been seen on Twitter in this role. Earlier in the season also, he posted a video of himself giving Spanish lessons to his daughter. After his team had won the first qualifier of the ongoing season of IPL, he had posted a picture of himself and his wife sitting on the Wankhede outfield with their daughter. The text accompanying the photograph said: “At the end, this is what matters the most.”Rohit, who is 32 years old, got married in December 2015 to Ritika Sajdeh and the couple became parents in December last year. His wife has been seen often at stadiums supporting her husband while the whole family has been together during most of the season.It has become common among Indian cricketers of current generation to have their families with them and their spouses and partners present at the stadium. It is a sea change from earlier generations of cricketers who were rather discreet about showing their emotions in public.Both Sharma and India captain Virat Kohli have acknowledged their wives on field as well after getting to landmarks. While that may draw a mixed response from people used to watching the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid maintain stoicism about their personal feelings, the pictures and videos of Rohit Sharma with his cute daughter are bound to melt the heart of most sensitive people.last_img read more
