Sephora News: Paul Scholes sends blunt warning to Man United ahead of Arsenal clash

Paul Scholes has warned Jose Mourinho that his Manchester United team must turn up against Arsenal at The Emirates on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils were 4-2 winners against Watford at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

Manchester United moved eight points clear of fourth-placed Arsenal ahead of the north London side’s home clash against Huddersfield Town on Wednesday night.

The 20-time English champions have only managed to collect four points from their three Premier League fixtures against their direct title rivals in the 2017-18 season so far.

Manchester United drew 0-0 with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side at Anfield before the Red Devils were unconvincing 1-0 winners against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

Mourinho’s men lost 1-0 to defending Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at the weekend following Alvaro Morata’s 55th-minute winner in west London.

Former Manchester United midfielder Scholes warned Mourinho’s side that the Red Devils can’t afford to underestimate Arsenal ahead of their clash at The Emirates this weekend.

“Saturday against Arsenal is a big game and they have to turn up,” Scholes told BT Sport .

“It’s very difficult to criticise when you’re winning games, especially when you’re scoring four goals. But they’ve really got to turn up in these big games and win some of them.”

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season but won the League Cup and the Europa League thanks to victories over Southampton and Ajax.

Sephora News: Antonio Conte sends open message to Chelsea supporters about Victor Moses

Antonio Conte has warned Chelsea fans that it will take some time for Victor Moses to get back to full fitness with the Blues.

The Nigeria international has been sidelined with a hamstring injury in recent weeks but has made himself available for selection again after working hard on his fitness levels behind the scenes at Cobham.

Moses was one of Chelsea’s key players last season as he made the wing-back role his own and helped Conte’s men to win the title in the Italian manager’s first season at the club.

Chelsea will be hoping to have Moses back fit for the Blues as quickly as possible, as the hectic festive period in the Premier League looms large.

However, Conte has insisted that he won’t rush Moses back to action and warned that it will take him some time to rebuild his fitness levels.

Speaking at his news conference before the home clash with Swansea City on Wednesday, Conte said: “I have to make the best decision for the team and every player.

“For sure, Victor is back from a bad injury and he needs a bit of time to find the best physical condition. He is an important player.”

Chelsea now switch their attentions towards their home clash against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as they look to continue their Premier League push.

The west London side booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League last week with a 4-0 win over Qarabag.

Sephora News: Photos: 19-year-old Woman Set To Marry Her Father’s Age Mate

A woman has defied her family to fly many miles from home to be with a 53-year-old man who is the love of her life.

A 19-year-old has revealed how she plans to marry a man 33 years her senior after they fell in love while chatting online.

Michaela Matson, 19, from Omaha in Nebraska, says she’s madly in love with truck driver fiancé William Maldera, 53, after meeting on an ’emotion venting’ app last year.

The photography student says she was initially attracted to his ‘handsome’ photo online and after months of speaking multiple times per week over video chat, they decided to finally meet – and they’ve been together ever since.

But after telling her parents about William, they told her to end the relationship, took her passport away and sent her to a psychologist.

Determined and love-struck Michaela went against their wishes to get her passport reissued and flew 1,500 miles to be with her other half in Alberta, Canada.

Two-months-ago, the pair with a 33-year age gap got engaged but say they are holding off on the nuptials until next year when Michaela’s parents have had time to ‘adapt to the situation’.

Until then the couple who are often affectionate in public ‘laugh it off’ when they are confused for ‘father and daughter’ rather than future husband and wife.

Michaela, a photography student, said: ‘The first time I saw William’s photo, I was thinking ‘Wow, he’s handsome’ and was attracted to him straight away.

‘I liked his nose, it’s cute and crooked – because his mom broke it as a child – then he has the most gorgeous light brown eyes that are completely breath-taking.

‘I didn’t know who he was at first, but he caught my eye and after we started talking more and more, gradually I realised I was falling for this man.

‘We were video calling on Facebook almost daily, if not three to four times a week, dependent on his work and my school schedule.

‘He made the first big move by saying ‘I love you’ and I said it back a month later, he hit all the right areas with me apart from me living in America and him in Canada.

‘My plan was to go and visit him without telling my mom other than leaving a note, but my man wanted me to tell her before I left.

‘Then both my mom and William wanted me to tell my dad, I had a bad feeling about telling him and I have never seen him so upset in my life.

‘He threatened to disown me if I decided to keep dating William
‘Then I was sent to see a psychologist, who agreed with what my parents wanted that I had to ‘end it’ with William.

‘Whenever I was texting him, my dad asked if I was talking to ‘the piece of ****’.

‘Because I had given my mom my passport after telling my parents about, what should have been, my vacation with William, I had to apply for a new one and set aside money for myself to move in with him.

‘But as soon as I saw him at the airport I dropped my luggage and ran, I was so excited and overwhelmed to finally meet face to face.

‘He made me feel like I was at home immediately and it’s been great ever since, a few months ago he asked me to be his wife, I couldn’t ask for a better man as a husband.

‘We are hoping to get married next August or September, I want to wait for my family to come around a little more and adapt.

‘I left the wrong way, but my parents are slowly accepting is and told me ‘It’s my life’, and neither want to lose me.’

Michaela says that since moving to be with her fiancé, she notices people giving her weird looks for dating someone older than her. As well as regularly having to correct unknowing strangers that William is actually her fiancé and not her father.

Michaela said: ‘We don’t expect people to know we are engaged, and not father and daughter because age gap relationships aren’t typical, we try not to let it bother us.

‘I’ve been called his daughter quite a few times, but he proudly tells them she’s my fiancé, other times we laugh it off while they apologise.

‘Normally if I notice anyone giving us a nasty glare I don’t care, I just find it funny how others can judge us so quickly despite not knowing who we are.

‘We don’t hide our relationship at all and we do show affection to one another in public.’

Michaela says friends often quiz her about intimate aspects of their relationship and don’t understand how two people over three decades apart could have ‘anything in common’.

They challenge the misconceptions and say they can’t wait to wed next year. She added: ‘There’s so much we both like and have in common it’s like we are in sync with one another.

‘We have more in common than we don’t have, we both love European food, expensive cars and music, I play the violin and he’s been singing for a long time.

‘It’s hard for some people to understand age-gap relationships, but William and I are really happy, we can’t wait to be married.’

Sephora News: We must protect our citizens from slavery – Saraki

The Nigeria Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has called on the government to do more to protect its citizens.

He said, “As a country, truly, it is a slap on the face of all of us if Nigerians can be treated in this manner. Like somebody said, Ivory Coast that is not as big as us is taking action to see how they can bring their own citizens back. We need to be doing similar things.”

The senators unanimously granted prayers of Garbai’s motion, including to “condemn in totality the current depravity and sheer animalism being exhibited by these Libyans selling fellow Africans as slaves.”

They also urged the Federal Government to urgently investigate how many Nigerians were affected by the slave sales.

The lawmakers also urged the Federal Government to urgently commence the process of repatriation and rehabilitation of Nigerian citizens “caught up in these despicable treatment and human rights abuses.”

The Senate further urged the Federal Government to “take all diplomatic steps, including summoning the Libyan ambassador in Abuja to brief the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to ensure that everyone involved is held accountable to face the full weight of international law and justice.”

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, made an additional prayer to “urge the governments at all levels in Africa to take steps to ameliorate the economic hardships feeding this migration crisis.”

Sephora News: Steven Gerrard makes admission about ‘unbelievable’ Chelsea star

Steven Gerrard has lavished praise on Eden Hazard for his “unbelievable” first-half performance against Liverpool FC for Chelsea on Saturday.

The Belgian playmaker was the star of the show in the first half at Anfield as he looked a threat throughout, despite the score remaining at 0-0 at half-time.

Hazard faded a little bit in the second half as Willian came off the bench to cancel out Mohamed Salah’s opener with a late equaliser on Merseyside.

The 26-year-old attacker seems to be finding his best form for Chelsea again this season after having only recently recovered from a serious ankle injury which kept him out of action at the start of the campaign.

Former Liverpool FC midfielder Gerrard played against Hazard on a number of occasions for the Merseyside outfit, and he is clearly a huge admirer of the Belgian.

Speaking to BT Sport after Saturday’s game, Gerrard said: “He [Hazard] was unbelievable, especially in the first half.

“He fizzled out a little bit in the second half, I think Liverpool coped with him better in the second half. In the first half he was unplayable.

“We said that you’ve got to get someone close to him but that’s easier said than done because he’s so quick and direct.

“His quality is unbelievable. When he’s at it, for me, he’s one of the best in the world.”

Hazard will be expecting to start for Chelsea when the Blues return to Premier League action on Wednesday night with a home clash against Swansea City.

The west London side are currently third in the Premier League table and 11 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City after 13 games of the new campaign.

Craig Bellamy: Why 25-year-old has been ‘immense’ Liverpool FC signing

Mohamed Salah has been an immense signing for Liverpool, Craig Bellamy has claimed.

The Merseyisde outfit signed the Egypt international in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the summer transfer window.

Salah struggled during his stint at Chelsea before he moved to Serie A where he scored lots of goals on loan at Fiorentina and AS Roma.

Salah signed off before the most recent international break with two goals in a 4-1 win at West Ham United before netting twice in a 3-0 victory over Southampton last weekend.

The summer signing broke the deadlock in a 1-1 draw with his former club Chelsea last weekend before Willian’s late equaliser.

The African forward has now scored 10 times in 13 games in the Premier League to beat Robbie Fowler’s record at the Merseyside club.

Former Liverpool striker Bellamy believes Salah has been simply brilliant for the Reds following his summer transfer.

Bellamy told Sky Sports: “This man Salah is incredible. He might be called a wide man but I class him as a forward. His record has been immense.”

Salah has scored 15 goals in 20 games in all competitions following his big-money move in the summer.

Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League last term.

Sephora News: Uhuru Kenyatta approves free Visa to Kenya

President elect of Kenya, Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta said on Tuesday that any African can get a visa on arrival in Kenya, and will be free to settle in the country if they marry a Kenyan, removing restrictions on some nations.

“If you wish and find a willing partner, you can marry and settle in Kenya,” he said during his inauguration address, saying the move was designed to cement African ties.

“This commitment we make again with no requirement for reciprocity.”
Mr. Kenyatta of Kenya was sworn in for a second term on Tuesday.

Mr. Kenyatta won a repeat presidential election on Oct. 26 that was boycotted by Odinga, who said it would not be free and fair.

The Supreme Court nullified the first presidential election, in August, over irregularities.

Mr. Kenyatta’s speech acknowledged that the extended election season has divided Kenya, a Western ally in a volatile region, and blunted growth in East Africa’s richest economy.

“The elections are now firmly behind us … I will devote my time and energy to build bridges,” Kenyatta told the rapturous crowd in a sports stadium in the capital of Nairobi as he formally began his second, five-year term.

He said Kenyans needed to “free ourselves from the baggage of past grievances, and … keep to the rule of law”.

Some supporters of Mr. Kenyatta, who won with 98 per cent of the vote after Mr. Odinga’s boycott, want Mr. Odinga to engage in talks and move on.

Jose Mourinho: I don’t care if Man United signing doesn’t score

Jose Mourinho has insisted that Romelu Lukaku’s recent lack of goals is made up for by his tireless work-rate at Manchester United.

The Belgian striker has been getting used to life at Old Trafford since signing for the Red Devils from Everton in the summer transfer window.

Lukaku initially made a strong start to life for the Red Devils but his goals have dried up in recent weeks, with the Belgian having only scored once in his last 10 appearances in all competitions.

The 24-year-old drew another blank on Saturday as Manchester United laboured to a 1-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford.

But despite Lukaku’s lack of goals in recent weeks, Mourinho insists that he has been delighted by the striker’s application.

Mourinho is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “In the last minute he was fighting and running back like he was in the first minute, so I think it is also a mentality question.

“The way Romelu wins the corner for the goal, the way Romelu ends the game making tackles in the left-back position – that is the mentality I want.

“Unfortunately, not every player is the same. Players are men, men are different. Men are unique cases.

“Some guys are capable to go into the limits of their efforts and some other guys even with a lot of talent, they don’t manage to do that.

“So Romelu, for me, [is] fantastic. Didn’t score, I don’t care.”

Lukaku will be hoping to find the net for the Red Devils when they take on Watford in the Premier League at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

Manchester United are currently in second place in the Premier League table and eight points behind leaders Manchester City as they look to catch Pep Guardiola’s men in the race for the title.

The Red Devils host Manchester City at Old Trafford on 10 December.

Sephora News: Ex-midfielder reacts to Jesse Lingard’s wonder goal in 4-2 win at Watford

Danny Murphy praised Manchester United midfieler Jesse Lingard for his “fantastic” goal in a 4-2 win over Watford at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils were looking to record a third successive win following victories over Newcastle United and Brighton in their last two outings.

Manchester United broke the deadlock in the first half thanks to Ashley Young’s second goal in successive Premier League games.

The England veteran extended the visitors’ lead with his second of the night to put the Red Devils in control of the top-flight clash.

Manchester United made it 3-0 in the 32nd minute thanks to Anthony Martial’s goal as the Frenchman capitalised on a rare start.

However, Troy Deeney halved the deficit from the spot with 13 minutes to go before Abdoulaye Doucore poked a finish past David De Gea in the 85th minute.

But England midfielder Lingard picked up the ball in the middle of the park and ran the length of the pitch to secure a 4-2 win.

The Red Devils struggled in October following a return of four points from four games but Manchester United have found their form in recent weeks.

And former Liverpool midfielder Murphy heaped praise on Lingard for his wonder goal.

“I talked earlier about Jesse Lingard’s ability to keep making these kind of runs, his unselfishness and his athleticism to keep making these runs in behind. He’s ran from 40 yards here, shown great awareness of space, great close control, and it’s a fantastic finish,” Murphy told BBC Sport .

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season but won the League Cup and the Europa League under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Sephora News: Kaduna State Fires 4,042 Local Government Workers

Efforts are being made by the All Progressives Congress-led administration in Kaduna State to restructure the civil service.

The Kaduna State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Alhaji Jafaru Sani, on Tuesday, confirmed the disengagement of 4,042 local government staff across the 23 local government areas of the state.

Sani told a news conference in Kaduna that the exercise was part of the ongoing restructuring of the local government system for effective service delivery.

He also said that the restructuring was designed to strengthen the local government system to carry out developmental projects and programmes.

He said that 3,159 staff among those disengaged had put in 10 years and were retired while the remaining 893 had their jobs terminated.

He explained that the retired staff would be paid their November salary including three months’ salary in lieu of notice while their pension would be worked out by their pension administrators.

Sani added that those whose appointments were terminated would equally be paid their November salary, one month salary in lieu of notice and gratuity according to the civil service rule.

“It is a known fact that the LGAs were overburdened by redundant and unproductive staff who are contributing nothing to the development of the councils.

“Because of the over-bloated staff, the LGAs are doing nothing other than paying salaries and end up becoming more or less a poverty alleviation centres, where people just go to collect money and go home.

“To ensure development at the local levels, therefore, we have to do what is right by downsizing the redundant staff to free some funds that would be injected in developmental projects.

“With the disengagement, the supporting members of staff at the 23 LGAs are now 6,732, excluding primary school teachers and primary health care workers.

“I am sure, with this development, local government areas will soon start executing capital and development projects to provide social services to the people.

Similarly, the Permanent Secretary, Local Government Commission, Mr Mahmud Zailani, explained that the ongoing local government restructuring was part of Gov. Nasir El-Rufai’s campaign promise to strengthen public service.

“The governor began his public service restructuring at the state level when he reduced the number of the state ministries from over 20 to 13.

“A number of permanent secretaries and other staff had to go during the process as part of efforts to provide quality public service.

“I say here that the disengagement was not forced on the LGAs but was carried out with their full support and each LGA was treated according to its peculiarities,’’ Zailani said.

Rio Ferdinand: Why Chelsea boss Antonio Conte deserves my praise

Rio Ferdinand has singled out Antonio Conte for special praise following his solid substitutions in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool FC on Saturday.

After a goalless first half at Anfield, Liverpool FC took the lead in the 65th minute when former Chelsea star Mohamed Salah poked home from close range.

Conte opted to bring on Cesc Fabregas and Willian shortly after, and both players had a big impact on the game.

Fabregas helped Chelsea to carve some good opportunities on goal, and it was Willian who proved to be the hero for the Blues, as his cross-cum-shot deceived Simon Mignolet and rescued a draw in the 85th minute.

And former Manchester United defender Ferdinand believes that Conte deserves the credit for helping Chelsea to win the game on Saturday.

Speaking to BT Sport , Ferdinand said: “I think Conte has to take some credit today [after the Liverpool FC draw] – I think he got his substitutions bang on.

“We expected Willian or Pedro to start but Cesc Fabregas came on and started to dictate the tempo of the game. And then Willian came on and scored.”

Chelsea will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Wednesday night when they host Swansea City at Stamford Bridge in the top flight.

The draw left the Blues, who won the title in Conte’s first campaign last term, third in the Premier League table and 11 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City after 12 games of the new campaign.

Sephora News: UK lifts ban as homosexuals, sex workers can now donating blood

The UK on Tuesday lifted a ban on commercial sex workers donating blood, an official said.

The Department of Health (DOH) announced new changes to rules on blood donation, saying it will maintain the safety of the blood supply and will enable more people to donate.

The lifting of ban followed recommendations from the Advisory Committee on the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs (SaBTO).

New groups of people now able to donate after three months have passed since the last sexual activity include commercial sex workers and men who have had sex with another man.

People, who have had sex with a partner at high risk of having a sexually transmitted infection, will also be able to donate blood.

Until now commercial sex workers were permanently excluded from blood donation, and the other groups had to wait until 12 months had passed before they could donate.

The rules are now consistent for all groups that are deferred due to sexual behaviours.

A spokesman for the DOH said: The new rules will allow more people to donate blood, without affecting the safety of the blood supply.

Dr Gail Miflin, Medical and Research Director at NHS Blood and Transplant said: “The SaBTO review took into account the latest available medical and scientific evidence.

This included more information about the risk of acquiring infections that can be passed on in blood, more evidence on how well donors comply with our guidelines and also more evidence that supports the reliability of the blood screening tests we use.

“We have one of the safest blood supplies in the world.

“Anyone may require a blood transfusion in the future and so it’s in all our interests to ensure that we work hard to keep blood safe for patients.”

Before every donation, all donors must complete a donor health check and have a private health screening where they may be asked confidential questions.

Sephora News: Arsenal won’t sell Ozil and Sanchez in January, Says Wenger

Arsenal FC manager Arsene Wenger has ruled out selling Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window “unless something unbelievable happens’’.

Both players are out of contract in the summer and have been the subject of repeated speculation that they may leave.

Ozil is a reported target for Manchester United and FC Barcelona, while Sanchez is the subject of a failed bid from Manchester City last summer.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s game with Huddersfield Town, Wenger was asked whether he thought both would still be at the club when the January transfer window closes.

“Yes, of course,’’ he said. “I rule it out. I don’t think every day about that.

“As long as they are here, they give their best for the club. In my head, they stay until the end of the season, unless something unbelievable happens. I don’t see that changing.’’

If neither player signs a contract extension, each could begin negotiating with other clubs in January ahead of a summer move.

When asked whether he thought the pair would remain at the club long term, Wenger said: “I am not the only one to decide that. They have to decide that as well.’’

Wenger also spoke about the future of Jack Wilshere, who has also been linked with a move after failing to nail down a regular first team place this season.

“I always considered his interests, because he has been an Arsenal player since a kid,’’ said Wenger. “My first priority is what is best for him.

“I have to consider the interests of Jack Wilshere and Arsenal. If I think it’s in his best interest to stay here, I will fight 100 percent for that.’’

Sephora News: Fayose to Maina: Name thieves in Buhari’s govt; “EFCC has become Falana’s meal ticket”

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has challenged the former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Mr. Abdullahi Maina, to go ahead and tell Nigerians those thieves he alleged were surrounding President Muhammadu Buhari in his government. He also said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has become a meal ticket of the human rights activist, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN).

Fayose also urged Maina to answer the corruption allegations against him as well as his fraudulent reinstatement.

Governor Fayose described the Maina’s interview shown on Channels Television yesterday, as explosive, saying he was sure that President Buhari will look the other way just as he did on the allegation of award of $25 billion contracts without following due process made by the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu against the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC); Dr. Maikanti Baru.

In a statement on Tuesday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said he had again been vindicated on his position that the kind of corruption being perpetrated in President Buhari’s government was unprecedented and mind-boggling.

He said; “The Maina’s challenge is another opportunity for President Buhari to prove to Nigerians that he is actually fighting corruption. But I am sure that since it, again, bothers on his closest men, he won’t do anything.”

Governor Fayose said it was important for Maina to wash himself clean of the N2.1 Billion pension fraud that made him escape from the country and earned him dismissal from the civil service.

The governor, who challenged Maina to “name those in Buhari’s government that are thieves,” also noted that “There is no need waiting for the President to conduct public inquiry on the pension scam.

Maina should just go ahead and tell Nigerians who the thieves among Buhari’s men are.

“Even after naming them, Maina should not expect any action from the President. Rather, he should be contented with satisfying his conscience and putting those Buhari’s men that he said are pretending to be saints in the court of public opinion.”

While maintaining his position on the self-appointed human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), over the allegation by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), linking the lawyer to a N1 billion property on Gana Street, Maitama, Abuja, Governor Fayose said it was sad that Falana and his collaborators have turned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to their source of huge income.

“EFCC has become Falana’s daily meal. Falana and his collaborators live on EFCC. They have turned themselves to brokers of bail and suppliers of lawyers to accused persons while at the same time buying seized properties at ridiculous amounts.

“Even the likes of Madaki, who have retired from service, have been brought back into the system so that he can continue to help them to perpetrate fraud,” he said.

Sephoea News: Jonathan fires back at Sagay

Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has dismissed claims by Chairman of Presidential Committee on Anti-corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay, SAN, that Nigerians would have been crossing the Sahara to Libya had he (Jonathan) stayed in office for another three years.

Jonathan, who reacted through one of his aides, Reno Omokri, said facts on ground suggested otherwise, stressing that the nation’s economy was better under his tenure than the present administration.

He said: ‘’The World Bank says our economy was better under Jonathan than it is now. Transparency International says corruption is worse today than under Jonathan. The Global Hunger Index says Nigerians are more hungry today than under Jonathan.

‘’Nigeria moved from 4th most terrorized nation in the world in 2015 to 3rd most terrorized nation in the Global Terrorism Index for 2017.

‘’Furthermore, under President Muhammadu Buhari, the United Nations reveals that there has been a massive increase in the number of Nigerians fleeing Nigeria via the desert with 602,000 leaving annually and 27,000 dying every year either in the Sahara Desert or the Mediterranean Sea.

So by what parameter is Sagay using to make his jaundiced judgment?
‘’Furthermore, under former President Jonathan, Nigeria was the first nation in the world to evacuate her citizens from Libya during the Arab Spring.

‘’Dr. Jonathan would never keep quiet if Nigerians are being sold as slaves in Libya. If President Buhari can call Nigerians “criminals” to the Telegraph of U.K, why should Nigerians be surprised when he does not act to free us from slavery in Libya?

‘’Professor Sagay spends too much time poking his nose into other people’s affairs and too little focus on his own business, that is why under his watch as chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption, PACAC, Maina got recalled, reinstated, double promoted and still received salary (according to his lawyer).

‘’That is why the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Maikanti Baru, was able to award $25 billion worth of contracts without due process.

‘’That is why $40 million was found in an Ikoyi apartment and Nigerians still do not know who the money belongs to.

‘’That is why there has been unbridled looting around President Buhari to the extent that the Presidential Clinic at Aso Rock does not have ordinary Panadol, despite the billions allocated to it under President Buhari.

‘’My advise to Professor Itse Sagay is that while he may be unjustifiably pointing one finger at former President Jonathan, four of his own fingers are justifiably pointing back to him and his master.’’

Sephora News: Paul Merson states honest prediction for Watford v Man United

Paul Merson has admitted that he doesn’t envisage Manchester United beating Watford in their Premier League clash at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils limped over the line in a 1-0 win against promoted side Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday thanks to Ashley Young’s deflected winner in the second half.

Manchester United lost 1-0 to Swiss outfit Basel in their penultimate Champions League fixture last week following Michael Lang’s last-ditch winner for the home side in Switzerland.

The 20-time English champions appeared to have turned a corner when Paul Pogba returned to the Manchester United side and inspired the Red Devils to a 4-1 win against Newcastle United.

Jose Mourinho’s side are eight points behind current leaders Manchester City after 13 games to leave the Red Devils with a lot of ground to make up in the title race.

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson is tipping Manchester United to be held to a 1-1 draw with Watford in the English capital on Tuesday night.

“I watched Man United against Brighton, they were very fortunate and I do not see them winning this, I really do not,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“Watford, to me, are in a different league to Brighton, so I am going for a 1-1 draw here and a draw would be a shocking result for United as they need to win all their games. But I just do not see it, so I am going to go 1-1, and this will be a difficult game (for United).”

Manchester United will take on Premier League leaders Manchester City in the derby on 12 December.

The Red Devils signed Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic in the summer transfer window.

Sephora News: Arsene Wenger makes honest admission to Arsenal fans about Jack Wilshere

Arsene Wenger has revealed that he has been delighted by Jack Wilshere’s recent form when called upon by Arsenal this season.

The England midfielder has struggled to hold down a starting spot at The Emirates over the last few seasons and he was shipped out on loan to Bournemouth for the 2016-17 campaign.

Wilshere has struggled with a string of serious injuries over the years but the midfielder will now be hoping to stay fully fit as he bids to break back into the Arsenal team ahead of the World Cup next summer.

The 25-year-old is yet to start a game in the Premier League for Arsenal this season, but has started four of the Gunners’ five games in the Europa League.

He came on as a second-half substitute and played the final 23 minutes of Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

And Wenger has been thrilled by the gradual improvements Wilshere has shown as the midfielder looks to earn his first Premier League start of the new campaign.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Sunday, Wenger said: “I feel he did alright when he came on because he had that little burst to be dangerous.

“I think he is focused, determined and that’s what we want from him. We play so many games that he is getting up and stronger in every game.”

Arsenal’s win lifted them up into fourth place in the Premier League table ahead of their home clash against Huddersfield on Wednesday night.

Sephora News: Arsene Wenger replies when asked if Mesut Ozil is leaving Arsenal for Barcelona

Arsene Wenger has insisted that he knows nothing about the reports linking Mesut Ozil with a transfer from Arsenal to Barcelona next year.

The 29-year-old’s future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks after both he and Alexis Sanchez entered into the final 12 months of their contracts at The Emirates.

As things stand, Arsenal could opt to sell Ozil for a fee in January or risk losing him on a free transfer in the summer window.

There have been reports in recent days suggesting that Ozil could be a transfer target for Spanish giants Barcelona.

However, Arsenal manager Wenger has moved to insist that he knows nothing about those claims and branded talk of a move to Camp Nou for Ozil as pure media speculation.

Asked if Ozil had already agreed terms with the Catalan club, Wenger is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “No.

“What kind of control can I have over that [speculation]? All these people have agents who can talk to anybody. That doesn’t disturb people, that happens all through their career.”

Arsenal return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when they host newly-promoted Huddersfield Town at The Emirates.

The Gunners are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title this season after having finished in fifth place in the table last term.

Arsenal have not won the Premier League since their famous unbeaten triumph back in the 2003-04 campaign.

Sephora News: Why I End My Boxing Career To Become An Actor – Mr. Ibu Reveals

Veteran Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, better known as Mr. Ibu, has revealed why he ended his boxing career to become an actor.

In an interview with the Punch, the Nollywood star disclosed he was once a boxer. He said he quit boxing when a Delta boy battered his face in a championship fight.

He said, ‘’I would have been a boxer. I used to be a boxer. I was doing well until I went for a championship in Delta State.

‘’The boy I fought with was an idiot; he gave me a beating I would never forget. That boy changed my face and made me hate anything that had to do with gloves.

‘’After the fight, I looked in the mirror and I could not even recognise myself. I could see with only one eye for sometime due to the punches he dealt me. That was the incident that made me quit boxing.’’

Sephora News: FG urges ECOWAS to dismiss Nnamdi Kanu’s case

The Community Court of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) sitting in Abuja has been urged by the Federal Government to dismiss a fundamental human rights enforcement suit filed by the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

It stated that Kanu having been granted bail and allegedly escaped from his ongoing trial before the Federal High Court in Abuja, the judgment of the ECOWAS Court on the suit would serve no purpose.

Kanu had filed the suit on March 3, 2016 demanding $800m as compensation from the Federal Government for his alleged unlawful arrest in 2015 and continued detention.

But the lawyer representing the Federal Government, Mrs. Maimuna Shiru, stated in an objection to the suit that Kanu having been granted bail by the Federal High Court in Abuja where he is being tried alongside others on charges of treasonable felony, on April 25, 2017, it was unnecessary for the ECOWAS Court to adjudicate on the IPOB leader’s suit.

She also noted that Kanu having allegedly jumped the bail granted him by the Federal High Court, Abuja, event had overtaken the suit.

The three grounds of the application stated, “Having regards to Article 88(2) of the Rules of the Community Court of Justice, ECOWAS, this suit has become devoid of purpose and unnecessary to adjudicate upon.

“The result of a judicial decision in this suit will serve no purpose. There are no live issues in controversy between the parties for the court to determine.”

Mr. Thomas Etah, who deposed to an affidavit filed in support of the Federal Government’s motion, stated that Kanu filed his notice of registration before the ECOWAS Court on March 3, 2016, while the plaintiff was granted bail by the Federal High Court on April 25.

He added, “That the plaintiff/respondent has now jumped bail and his whereabouts are unknown.

“That further to paragraph 8 above, it is public knowledge that the Federal High Court of Nigeria has ordered Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe and two other sureties to produce the plaintiff/respondent or forfeit their bail bonds.

“That the plaintiff/respondent and the group he represents, the Indigenous People of Biafra have been proscribed as a terrorist organisation by the defendant/applicant (Federal Government).

“That this suit before this honourable court has been overtaken by events and has become devoid of purpose.”

Kanu’s lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told the ECOWAS Court on November 21 that he needed to respond to the application by the Federal Government.

He alleged that the Federal Government deliberately delayed the filing of the motion in order to frustrate the hearing of the case.

But the Federal Government’s lawyer denied the allegation insisting that the motion was filed early enough.

The presiding judge of the ECOWAS Court panel, Justice Hameye Mahalmadane, also noted that the court paper filed by the Federal Government had to be interpreted to the panel members who were all French-speaking.

The court adjourned until February 7 for hearing.

Sephora News: Good Samaritan settles bill of detained mother and new born baby

A Good Samaritan has settled the bill of a 21-year-old woman, Blessing Agbo, and her newborn baby boy, who were detained in a Lagos hospital for four months over a medical bill.

It was learnt that the man, who wanted to be anonymous, also gave Agbo N50,000 for baby food and clothes.

This is just as the management of the hospital, God Cures Hospital, appealed to Nigerians to stop calling at the facility to pay for the bill.

It was earlier reported that Agbo went into labour sometime in June while her live-in lover, Chibugo Duru, a truck driver, travelled to Calabar, Cross River State, on a business trip.

She was said to have undergone a caesarean section and was delivered of a baby boy after Duru agreed to pay N245,000 for the operation.

He was, however, said to have fled the hospital after paying N30,000.

Duru, who told PUNCH Metro that he was preparing to pay Agbo’s bride price in December 2017, said he stopped going to the hospital over threats of arrest by the hospital management.

He claimed that the hospital turned down his offer to amortise the bill.

But the hospital denied the allegations, saying the 27-year-old abandoned his lover and baby despite signing an undertaking.

It claimed that Duru once assaulted the new mother during an altercation over the bill.

Our correspondent gathered that after the report, a Good Samaritan contacted the hospital and paid the bill through an aide.

A top official of God Cures Hospital, who asked not to be named, said the man paid into the hospital’s account.

He said, “The man called through his aide. I was told he is a politician based in Abuja. We also had to give him some discounts. After paying the bill, he gave the woman and her baby the sum of N50,000.

He said he wanted to be anonymous. But since then, we have had some other people coming to the hospital and offering to settle the bill.

I think it is important you help us tell people to stop offering to pay the bill. I have personally received up to three calls on this case already.”

Her lover, Duru, said, “She was discharged on Friday morning. We are in the house together now; both mother and child are fine. Thank you for the assistance.”

A Law student identified as only ‘Vita’, has been crowned the winner of Cambridge University ‘s ‘Best Bum’ competition, a victory she said she’s proud of than winning her place in the college.

Vita scooped 24.32% of the votes, in the annual competition held by The Tab student newspaper after a picture of her unclad and leaning against an oak tree at Homerton College surface in the competition.

“I don’t have the most athletic figure and I have quite a considerable bottom and thighs.It says a lot about how far the world has come in body acceptance.

I have worked hard to accept my body. I wanted to prove that to myself by doing something I wouldn’t usually do.
I didn’t even expect the photo would be in the Top 10 – let alone be the winner.

I’ve never been so proud of something like that. I’m probably more proud of that than getting into Cambridge” she said.

For the competition, Tab called for the submission of bum of “every type of tush – all shapes and sizes”;

Sephora News: My months in Libya were hell, says returnee father of 5

A Libya returnee and father of five, Mr. Sylvester Agho, has described his five months experience in the North African country as hellish and harrowing, just as he promised to join in the fight against illegal migration.

He made the disclosure while fielding questions from newsmen in Benin, Edo State capital, weekend, shortly after their deportation from Libya.

Agho, who said he was glad to have been back to the country, said the moment one leaves his country, he loses his freedom, pointing that there is no other country that can be likened to Nigeria.

He said: “I am happy because there is no place like home. When you are in Nigeria, you have the freedom to move about without molestation, but the moment you step out of the shores of Nigeria, you have lost your freedom.

“There is a great discrimination over there. But in Nigeria, there is nothing like such. You can work freely unlike over there.”

Mr. Agho, who is among the 531 Edo indigenes deported from Libya to the state, said he will advise those still thinking of leaving the country to have a rethink and look for something meaningful to do to earn a better livelihood rather than endangering their lives in a foreign land.

His words: “I left this country on June 15 this year and I am back today, which means that I spent five months and some week there. But throughout that period, I was in hell.

“There was nothing good over there.

There is nothing on earth that will make me to say that I want to travel by land to Europe. But for those going back, I will advise them to stay in Nigeria and find something else to do.”

‘They don’t respect human’
Another returnee, Mr. Destiny Gabriel, said he was overwhelmed with joy to have being deported back to Nigeria.

“When I came to Nigeria last night, I was happy. I had joy and freedom because we lived in a place where there was no freedom. They do not have respect for human beings.

“On coming home, we are expecting to get something to start up our lives again because a lot of us spent our last money, sold our property to leave this country to get a better life.”

Destiny appealed to the Federal and state governments to provide a means of livelihood for the returnees to prevent them from taking into crime.

He said: “Governments should do something. They should not allow the youths to enter the streets. They should do something that will encourage us to know that our governments are really there for us.

“I appreciate the governor, who said we should stay in this hotel for three days. But after three days, what then happens to us? Where do we go from here? These are the questions I am asking.”

Sephora News: 2019: Igbo in Abuja begin campaigns for Buhari

The Igbo community in Abuja has begun a campaign for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, urging a former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu to desist from speaking in a manner that suggests that the president is not interested in the 2019 project.

Speaking on Sunday at the inauguration of the Abuja chapter of the pro-Buhari group, Ndigbo for Buhari 2019, leader of the group, and an All Progressives Congress APC chieftain, Prince Paul Ikonne advised the Igbo to work with the mindset that the president is standing for a re-election and must be supported.

“As a leader of APC in Abia State and a staunch supporter of Mr. President, I feel compelled to advise Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu to desist from acts and utterances capable of discrediting Mr. President and our great party APC.

The APC is not PPA and as such, the state chairman of APC in Abia State should give Orji Kalu the APC Constitution to read, because I can see he joined APC with PPA Constitution in his mind”, he said.

Reacting to Kalu’s comment that President Buhari is not interested in a second term automatic ticket, the group asked the former governor to keep quiet as “he is not the spokesperson to the president.”

“It is unfortunate that Orji Kalu is speaking this way. Just few days back, the same Kalu was calling on the Abia state governor to join APC and get automatic ticket.

Today he is now saying that Mr. President is not interested in an automatic ticket; if you are calling on someone who is not a member of APC to come and get an automatic ticket and you are saying a founding father of the party is not interested in automatic ticket, then where is the justification?

Is it because my leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said it that is why Kalu is saying the same thing?

“On the 2nd of June 2017, former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, used his social media account to publish a document titled ‘My Contract with Nigeria’. The document essentially detailed his manifesto as an aspiring presidential candidate of APC.

Some weeks back, the streets of Abuja, Abia, Lagos, Imo and others were defaced with 2019 campaign posters of Orji Uzor Kalu which he confirmed seeing ‘on his way to the airport’ and later disclaimed as the handiwork of his phantom political opponents.

But few days ago, he enumerated the benefits and how the posters has made him more popular, saying, ‘by their mischief, PDP was only making me popular and eager to produce an Igbo President’.

So it is obvious that Kalu, in his usual way and manner, printed and circulated the posters as a way of testing political waters, which is typical of the Kalu that we know.

“Most recently, Orji Kalu made utterances bordering on giving an automatic ticket to Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu if he joins the APC. Kalu had said, ‘the ruling party will give an automatic ticket to the current Governor of the state, Okezie Ikpeazu if he chooses to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party PDP’.

For us, this is not only an exhibition of ignorance of party rules, but it is disturbing, distractive and against the party’s Constitution.

“We call on well meaning Abians, the supporters of Mr. President, APC in Abia State and south –east in general to ignore Orji Kalu and his mindset as we continue to support Mr. President for his second term”, said Ikonne.

Sephora News: Atiku meets North-East PDP, says Buhari dividing Nigeria along ethnic, religious lines

FORMER Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration over what he alleged as his dismal performance in office and for dividing the country along ethnic and religious lines.

The assertions were made in his resignation letter from the All Progressives Congress, APC.

This came as the former vice-president, ahead of his imminent return to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over the weekend, won the endorsement of the North-East caucus of the party to return to the party.

Meanwhile, contrary to the statement of the APC that it was unaware of the resignation of Atiku from the party, Vanguard gathered that Atiku resigned from the party more than a month ago.

The resignation letter, dated October 18, 2017, was channelled through his ward chairman in Jada 1 Ward, in Jada Local Government Area of Adamawa Sate.

In the letter, Atiku said his decision to quit the ruling party was not about him but about the future of the country as a democratic entity.

Atiku’s resignation letter
He said: “I wish to inform you of my decision to resign my membership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in this ward with effect from the date of this letter.

“I am resigning from a party we formed and worked so hard, with fellow compatriots across the country, to place in government.

“I had hope that the APC government will make improvements to the lives of our people and the continued existence and development of Nigeria as one indivisible nation. This hope has now been dashed.

“I am unable to reconcile myself with the dismal performance of the party in government, especially in relation to the continued polarization of our people along ethnic and religious lines, which is threatening our unity more than any other time in the recent past and the unbeatable hardship that our people are currently undergoing.

“As I said in 2006, it is the struggle for democracy, constitutionalism and service to my country and my people that are driving my choice.

Let me emphasize again that this is not about me. We have to have a country before people can aspire to lead it.

“While wishing you well, let me express the hope that in the near future, a substantial number of you will join forces with us to once again defeat impunity and restore vision and purpose to the politics of our great country.

“Please accept the assurances of my highest regard. ”

Atiku meets North-East PDP
Meanwhile, Atiku has continued to consolidate his grounds in the North-East sequel to what promises to be a tough presidential primary in the party, with some of the presidential aspirants in the PDP that have declared or are yet to declare their aspirations.

On his arrival in Yola, Adamawa State, last Friday, the former vice-president met with the state executive and some local government chairmen of the PDP, during which he intimated them of his resignation from the APC.

A source privy to the meeting told Vanguard that he won the support and encouragement of the PDP chieftains who noted his leading role in bringing the party to the state.

Atiku at the onset of the Fourth Republic, won the governorship election in Adamawa State in 1999 but side-stepped the office to run with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on PDP ticket.

Following his meeting with the Adamawa State exco, the former vice-president on Saturday met with all six state chairmen of the PDP in Yola.

Also present at the meeting was the PDP national vice-chairman, North-East, Ambassador Emmanuel Njwah, during which they were said to have also encouraged him on his imminent return.

The former vice-president, according to sources, is following a script that would lead to his registration in the PDP in his ward preparatory to his presence at the party’s national convention on December 9.

Rio Ferdinand: Liverpool FC need to make this signing

Rio Ferdinand has told Jurgen Klopp to go out and make a Liverpool defensive signing with a big personality to organise his back four.

The Reds squandered a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 with Sevilla in the Champions League in Spain on Tuesday night to miss out on the chance to qualify for the round of 16 with a game to spare.

Liverpool conceded one goal in four games in comfortable victories over Huddersfield Town, Maribor, West Ham and Southampton before their setback in Sevilla.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s men have conceded 17 times in 12 games, which is poor defensive record in comparison to their title rivals about them in the table.

Liverpool were heavily linked with a move to sign Southampton club captain Virgil van Dijk in the summer transfer window but the Reds couldn’t get a deal over the line.

The Merseyside outfit were unable to sign the Netherlands international despite the centre-half handing in a transfer request in the final month of the transfer window.

Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand offered Klopp some advice in terms of what kind of centre-half Liverpool need to sign.

“I don’t care who you go and get.

They’ve got to get someone with personality,” Ferdinand told BT Sport .

“They’re lacking a leader within that back four. Someone in there who at half-time would tell people where to be.

“They need someone in there who is going to say: ‘I am the man here’.

They have too many followers. They’re looking to the manager rather than someone on the pitch.”

Sephora News: Jose Mourinho names Man United’s most improved player this season

Jose Mourinho has admitted that he has been delighted by Anthony Martial’s improvement in form for Manchester United this season.

The French striker has been in good form for the Red Devils this term and has been more of a regular fixture in the first team for Mourinho’s men.

Martial scored five goals and made two assists in his first 11 Premier League outings for Manchester United this season and looks as if he is steadily improving under the Portuguese coach.

Manchester United fans will be hoping to see Martial step his game up even more in the coming weeks as the hectic festive period in the Premier League looms large.

And Mourinho has singled Martial out for special praise following his impressive upturn in form for the Red Devils so far this term.

Speaking at a news conference before Manchester United’s clash with Brighton on Saturday, Mourinho said:

“I cannot complain about the dedication or the motivation. They all try to give their best.

“I think we had an improvement with Martial. He’s scoring more goals than last season. That’s why he is playing more. He has more minutes on the pitch.

“The other players are what they are. They have different kinds of qualities. Sometimes they produce a lot, and we have lots of chances and we don’t score enough.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Tuesday night when they travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford.

Mourinho is aiming for his team to keep challenging for the title and keep pace with Manchester City ahead of the crunch clash between the two teams at Old Trafford on 10 December.

Sephora News: Huddersfield v Man City

Manchester City will be looking for an 11th straight Premier League win when they travel to Huddersfield on Nissan Super Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side have been in fantastic form this season and are yet to lose a game, only dropping points in the league against Everton on August 21.

They start the weekend with an eight-point lead over Manchester United but were held to a goalless draw by Huddersfield in the FA Cup last season.

"We realised how complicated it is to play there," said City boss Guardiola.

"At home, they have had good results. When they decide to make high pressing, they are so well-organised."

Newly-promoted Huddersfield were beaten 4-0 at Bournemouth last weekend, but have won two of their last four matches to stay clear of the relegation zone.

Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass
And manager David Wagner is looking forward to facing City and then Arsenal on Wednesday.

"Our next two games sounds like Champions League instead of Premier League but these are the games that we look forward to. We are very excited, he said.

"We know everything about Man City; there will be no surprises. Now we have to handle and manage their strengths. Hopefully, we can put our idea onto the grass on Sunday."

Team news

Christopher Schindler returns from suspension for Huddersfield while Jonathan Hogg is back after missing the last match due to the birth of his son.

Kasey Palmer (hamstring) is back in full training, but Philip Billing (ankle), Michael Hefele (Achilles) and Jon Gorenc Stankovic (knee) remain out.

Man City have no new injury concerns, with captain Vincent Kompany available for selection again. John Stones and Benjamin Mendy are the only absentees.

Huddersfield held Pep Guardiola's Man City to a goalless draw in an FA Cup fifth-round tie at the John Smith's Stadium last season, before losing the replay 1-5.

Manchester City won the last top-flight meeting between these sides, earning a 1-0 win at Maine Road in February 1972 thanks to a Tommy Booth goal.

The last time these sides met in league competition was in the 1999-00 second tier, with the Terriers remaining unbeaten against Joe Royle's Man City (W1 D1).

Manchester City beat Huddersfield 10-1 in a league match in November 1987 - to date, it's the last time a club has scored 10+ goals in an English league match.

Danny Higginbotham discusses why he thinks teams outside the top six have a better chance of ending Manchester City’s unbeaten run

Merson's prediction

Huddersfield play a certain way; they squeeze and play a high tempo, but they can't do that against Man City.

City will ping it around them and make chances with every attack.

I like David Wagner, I really do. But now watch him, he will have had eight days after a bit of a hiding against Bournemouth. He has had the time to work with his team and set up completely differently to how they would any other day.

That sort of flexibility, I think, really separates great managers. What will he try to do to stifle this Man City team? Don't go and squeeze them, because City will do what Spurs did, when Huddersfield didn't know what day it was.

Sephora News: Man Utd extend perfect home run

Manchester United were indebted to a heavily fortunate winning goal - credited as a Lewis Dunk own goal - as they scraped past Brighton 1-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The slice of luck came on 66 minutes when Ashley Young's strike from the edge of the box spun off Dunk's boot, which wrong-footed Mathew Ryan and looped into the top corner.

United may have taken maximum points but it was a pretty uninspiring showing against a spirited Brighton outfit, who were tough to break down.

The victory maintains their 100 per cent home record in the Premier League this season and moves them to within five points of Manchester City at the top. City travel to play Huddersfield on Super Sunday.

Player Ratings

Man Utd: De Gea (7), Valencia (7), Lindelof (7), Smalling (7), Young (7), Matic (7), Pogba (7), Mata (6), Martial (6), Rashford (7), Lukaku (6)
Subs: Fellaini (6), Ibrahimovic (7), Mkhitaryan (6)
Brighton: Ryan (7), Bruno (7), Bong (7), Dunk (7), Duffy (7), Stephens (6), Knockaert (7), Gross, (7) Propper, (6) Murray (6), March (6)
Subs: Hemed (6), Izquierdo (6), Brown (6)
Man of the match: Ashley Young

Brighton arrived at Old Trafford unbeaten in their previous five league games and they started in confident mood, with Anthony Knockaert showing flashes of magic down the right without finding the killer final ball.

United's build-up play lacked tempo as Romelu Lukaku was made to feed off scraps played into the box.

Romelu Lukaku in action during the Premier League match between Man Utd and Brighton

He did get on the end of a piece of quality from Marcus Rashford just before the break, but the Belgian and Paul Pogba were denied by a fantastic double save from Ryan.

The second half continued in the same theme, with Brighton holding firm and restricting United to pot shots from range.

Team news

Jose Mourinho kept the same Man Utd team that steamrolled Newcastle last weekend, meaning Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku all started. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was on the bench.

Meanwhile, Chris Hughton made just one change from Brighton's clash with Stoke, with Solly March replacing Jose Izquierdo.

Jose Mourinho called for Zlatan Ibrahimovic midway through the half and the extra body up front started to pin the visitors back.

The goal came four minutes after the striker's introduction - but it was more by luck than judgement.

A corner, which was controversially awarded to United, was cleared out to Young, who struck an effort with his left-foot that was heading off target before taking a wicked deflection off Dunk and flying into the opposite corner. Ryan had no chance.

United have only conceded once at home in the Premier League this season and they rarely looked in danger of relinquishing their lead once in front.

Shane Duffy headed a half-chance wide late on for Brighton, while Ibrahimovic came close to opening his account for the season after good link-up with Lukaku.

Man of the match: Ashley Young

A tough choice with no real standout performers, but Young's attacking play on the left troubled Brighton throughout.

Clearly in confident mood, the full-back's decision to take the shot on inevitably lead to United's opening goal. Surely he and Dunk will be pushing for Young to be credited with the goal, which would be his first since May 2016.

Pundit reaction: Paul Merson

"United did find a way, and fair play to them. Brighton players getting back on that coach will be thinking 'how did we not get something from this?' They were just unlucky.

So many times the ball just fizzed across the box and nobody was there to get on the end of it. They took the game to United.

"Ibrahimovic comes on and United are a different team. Brighton players just showed him a bit more respect.

If United want to win the Premier League, they need seven points from the three big games coming up [away to Watford and Arsenal, and home to Man City].

From what I have seen today, I would be surprised if United won any, even against Watford."

What's next?

Both teams are back in action on Tuesday when United visit Watford, while Brighton take on rivals Crystal Palace in what will be the first-ever Premier League meeting between the two.

You talk a good game in public but in real life all you are is desperate almost 50 year old woman who is emotionally like a 22 year old young a*s woman.

Instead of getting your stomach in order, you need to get your mind in order and see a psychologist! Your dad taught you about hustling, but CLEARLY he left out the part about self -worth, and how a man should treat you in his teachings.

You almost act like you were a fatherless child. Looking for love in the biggest man-hood- no matter the cost to your spirt and soul. Is a good climax really worth sharing a man-hood with 3 different women??? Do you think your dad would approve of Kelvin?

A man who keeps breaking your heart, stepping on it and shit. your dumber than Yvette. At least she was the main— you’re not even that.” He’s NEVER going to let Nadia go! Even while he’s with you now, they are still following each other .
