Arsenal 1 – 0 Watford

Emile Smith Rowe scored for the third Premier League game in a row as in-form Arsenal marked Mikel Arteta’s 100th game in charge with a 1-0 win over Watford at the Emirates. The Gunners, now unbeaten in 10 games across all competitions, had been by far the better team in the first half without reward. Bukayo Saka had an early strike overturned by VAR for offside and, after Danny Rose’s blatant foul on Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty was superbly stopped by the impressive Ben Foster 10 minutes before the…

Flooring Porter, last season’s Stayers’ Hurdle hero, had made the running and still looked to be going within himself, despite being challenged by Grand Roi, when he came down. Thankfully both Gavin Crowmell’s six-year-old and rider Danny Mullins were quickly to their feet. That left Darasso (4-1), who had made ground from last place in the five-runner field, to pick up the pieces. The eight-year-old, trained by Joseph O’Brien,…

A few people protested in front of the hotel where the President was staying. Unlike in 2010 and 2012 where they managed to bring people in thousands and attracted British media attention, this time around they have failed miserably. Talking…
