LNTUP 5 Hot Topics of The Day By the date 25th Oct 2017
The 5 hot topics of the day are as follows:
1.3-0 win for Barcelona in Copa Del Rey.
Gerard Deulofeu manufactured the opening goal and then scored with an outstanding solo effort as Barcelona beat third-division Murcia 3-0 in the Copa del Rey on Tuesday. Jose Arnaiz, a 22-year-old reserve team player, marked his Barcelona debut by scoring the third goal for the cup holders in the first leg match of the round-of-32.
2. Dortmund jumped back in the German Cup.
Defending champion Borussia Dortmund used the German Cup to bounce back from a recent dip in form by racking up a 5-0 win at third-division Magdeburg in the second round on Tuesday.
Dortmund, which hadn’t won in three games across all competitions, attacked from the start with Maximilian Philipp striking the post and Alexander Isak drawing a good save from Alexander Brunst on the rebound
3. Jones will come back.
Manchester United centre half Phil Jones has recovered from a leg injury and will be fit to play in Saturday’s Premier League clash against Tottenham
“I think Jones will be (back) because, today, he was on the bench and he told me he will be ready in case I need him,” Mourinho said after Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Swansea City.
4. Bravo saved Manchester City.
Bravo, now the second-choice goalkeeper at City after an underwhelming first season at the club, made crucial saves in normal time and in the penalty shootout as Manchester City ousted Wolverhampton Wanderers in a grueling last-16 match.
City won the shootout 4-1 – with Sergio Aguero deftly chipping the clinching penalty high into the net – after Bravo made flying saves from Wolves’ second and third kicks.
5. Arsenal saved by a teenager.
Nketiah, an 18-year-old striker making only his second appearance for Arsenal, entered as a substitute against Norwich and scored the equalizer within 15 seconds. His first touch of the ball took the game against another second-tier team to extra time, where Nketiah then grabbed a 96th-minute winner as Arsenal edged through 2-1 at home.
