In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Chris Smalling might have put United in front after nine minutes, but Kepa Arrizabalaga saved the weak header before Chelsea’s best stretch of the game.United’s Sergio Romero then made two saves in quick succession, punching David Luiz’s free kick to Pedro, whose volley was gathered by the goalkeeper.Eden Hazard later curled wide before Gonzalo Higuain headed narrowly off target from a cross by Cesar Azpilicueta.Pogba, deployed on the left of United’s midfield, set up the opening goal when he crossed from the left to Herrera, who headed in unnoticed at the back post.A second goal followed as Pogba won the ball in midfield, fed Marcus Rashford down the right wing and was then found by Rashford’s pinpoint cross.Hazard tried to spark Chelsea in the second half by cutting in from the right, but his shot was blocked by Victor Lindelof.Chelsea fans then started to grow restless, greeting Sarri’s predictable substitution of Willian for Pedro with sarcastic applause and doing so again when Mateo Kovacic was replaced by Ross Barkley.“You don’t know what you’re doing” was followed by a chant of “you’re getting sacked in the morning,” and more boos followed when Davide Zappacosta replaced Azpilicueta.United will face Wolverhampton in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup, which will take place March 15-17.

Sarri, who replaced Antonio Conte in the summer, went unbeaten over his first 18 games in all competitions but has won just six of 12 games since Jan. 1.“I can understand the situation and our fans, because the result wasn’t really good,” Sarri said. “We are out of the FA Cup, so I can understand. But I am worried about our results.“We were unlucky. In the first half, we played better than the opponent and, at the end of the first half, it was 2-0 to them, so we played confused football in the second half. But, in the first half, we played well. We need, of course, more aggression, more determination.”A change of manager has had the desired effect for United, which appointed Solskjaer after firing Jose Mourinho on Dec. 18.Sarri selected a predictable lineup and Chelsea began well, but United grew into the game and always looked dangerous.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California collegelast_img read more

DONEGAL LIVE REGISTER DROPS BY ALMOST 19%

first_imgThe national Live Register has fallen for the 34th consecutive month and that in Donegal.Donegal’s unemployment figures are continuing to fall.The numbers of people signing on has dropped by 18.98% since the launch of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs in 2012.Deputy Dinny McGinley says the figures are a move in the right direction. And he says the recovery is as a direct result of the sacrifice of the Irish public.“Yet again the CSO figures bring positive news for Donegal where we can see that the Live Register has fallen by 18.98% since the launch of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs in February 2012. The task is not yet completed and, as we heard in the Government’s Spring Economic Statement, the plan is to ensure that all 300,000 jobs lost during the crisis are restored by 2018. To do this we are going to add 40,000 new jobs to the economy this year alone.“Thanks to the sacrifices of the Irish people and the sensible sustainable policies pursued by this Government, the economic recovery is continuing and we must make sure that everyone in Donegal will feel the benefit. However the recovery is still fragile and we can take nothing for granted. We cannot risk slipping backwards into economic risk through political instability.“Under this Government we have a proven plan for the remainder of this decade to secure and strengthen the recovery. We are never going back to the days of boom and bust.” DONEGAL LIVE REGISTER DROPS BY ALMOST 19% was last modified: May 1st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
