first_imgAdvertisement Comment Mikel Arteta has been active in the transfer market already this summer (Picture: Getty)Mikel Arteta has been impressed with the way new signings Gabriel Magalhaes and Willian have adapted ahead of their possible Arsenal debuts against Fulham on Saturday.The Gunners will begin their new Premier League campaign at Craven Cottage against Scott Parker’s newly promoted side amid something of a defensive injury crisis. Five of Arsenal’s senior central defenders have been ruled out of the London derby, which could force Arteta to select his £27million recruit from Lille at the earliest possible opportunity. Arsenal enjoyed success during last season’s run-in operating with a 3-4-3 formation, but with Gabriel, fellow new boy William Saliba and Rob Holding the only three fit recognised central defenders available, the Arsenal manager could be forced into switching systems. AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTAt the other end of the pitch, Gabriel’s compatriot Willian is likely to make his first competitive Arsenal appearance since his summer switch from Chelsea and Arteta believes both will prove to be hugely influential throughout the course of the new season. Advertisement Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba could make their Arsenal debuts against Fulham (Picture: Getty)‘They have been training really well,’ said Arteta when asked if Gabriel and Willian were in line to feature at Fulham. ‘They have adapted quickly. ‘They are really excited to be here with us, really good energy from both of them. Big talent, both in very different phases of their career. ‘One is already very established in the Premier League with incredible quality. And another one that has to adapt to this league but has huge potential to become a key player for us in the future.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

That’s something normal that we have to try to adapt to. ‘We’ve been trying with the players that we have fit at the moment. It’s not an ideal to start the season with some key players out but again, we have enough really good players and tomorrow we will have the best possible plan to try and win our first game.’MORE: Arsenal bad boy Matteo Guendouzi has rejected three offers to leaveMORE: Barcelona ready to include player in cash-plus-swap deal for Arsenal star Hector BellerinFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.

first_imgArsenal have won their last two matches against Alisson’s Liverpool side (Picture: Getty)Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson admits the Premier League champions failed to maintain their usual high standards towards the end of last season, but last week’s win at Chelsea has helped restore confidence and build momentum ahead of Monday’s heavyweight showdown against Arsenal.Jurgen Klopp’s side cantered to the title last season but displayed signs of vulnerability during the run-in and began the current campaign by losing to the Gunners on penalties in the Community Shield and conceded three times in an opening day seven-goal thriller against Leeds at Anfield. Liverpool returned to their ruthless best at Stamford Bridge last weekend, recording their first clean sheet in nine matches in the process, and will put their 100% start to the season on the line on against rapidly improving Arsenal.AdvertisementAdvertisementThe signings of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota have given an added boost to the feelgood factor around Anfield and, after a slight wobble, Alisson is confident Liverpool are returning to their best form. ADVERTISEMENTHe said: ‘We know that we dropped a little bit, we don’t know why,” he said. “It wasn’t something we wanted to do but we knew we had to go back to our path if we want to be competitive this season for the title, because I believe this season the level is higher.

first_imgGovernor Wolf Announces Pennsylvania Capitol Tribute to Tree of Life Shooting Victims SHARE Email Facebook Twitter National Issues,  Press Release,  Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced a tribute at the Pennsylvania State Capitol building in Harrisburg for the 11 congregants killed in the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. The capitol lights on Third Street will be darkened except for a single blue light.“All of Pennsylvania stands in solidarity with the victims, their families, all those mourning in Pittsburgh and Jewish Americans across the commonwealth,” Governor Wolf said. “This horrifying atrocity was the product of a dark and warped bigotry. We must shine a light on this hatred and anti-Semitism and expel it from our society.“While I remain deeply saddened by the loss of life, I found hope in the police officers that ran into harms way, the Jewish community in Pittsburgh that did not shy from who they are, and the Pittsburghers that came together to support one another. From this darkness, we must emerge with even greater energy to combat this vile hatred and to act to protect our citizens from these atrocities.”On Saturday, Governor Wolf also ordered all commonwealth flags at half-staff statewide in honor of the victims.center_img October 29, 2018last_img read more

He reported back with glowing references of two agents and the rest were horribly poor,” he said in his Property View from the Outer newsletter.“One agent in particular did not take the buyers’ details, did not know anything about the apartment, did not engage in conversation at all, locked up early and did not follow up the buyer on the Saturday afternoon or the following Monday. It baffles me.”He said the proof was in how they conducted themselves with potential buyers.“If you are currently on the market, send a friend through your own open house. If you are thinking about selling, go through a few open homes yourself. Forget about everything else.
