Anthony Martial reaches Manchester United milestone with Fulham goal

first_imgAnthony Martial reaches Manchester United milestone with Fulham goal Advertisement Advertisement Anthony Martial was in blistering form for Manchester United in the first half against Fulham (Getty Images)Manchester United raced into a 2-0 lead within the opening 23 minutes of their game with Fulham at Craven Cottage with Anthony Martial heavily involved in both goals.The 23-year-old was restored to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting line-up after coming off the bench against Leicester City last weekend and wasted little time in making an important contribution, sliding a through ball into Paul Pogba to score United’s first after 14 minutes.Better was to come just seven minutes later, when Martial received a pass on the halfway line from Phil Jones before blitzing his way past Denis Odoi and Maxime Le Marchand en route to burying a calm finish beyond Sergio Rico into the far corner.AdvertisementAdvertisementIt was a wonderful individual effort from the Frenchman and a strike reminiscent of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, not to mention Martial’s first ever goal for United against Liverpool back in September 2015.ADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityMartial has some way to emulating Henry’s 175 Premier League goals, but he did reach a significant personal milestone with his assist and goal against Fulham as they took him to 50 direct goal contributions in the competition.From his 106 Premier League appearances, Martial has scored 33 goals and registered 17 assists, more than any other United player has managed since he made his debut in that game against Liverpool three and a half years ago.Not only that, Martial’s strike also means he has matched his best-ever goalscoring season in the Premier League with nine goals with 12 games of the current campaign still to go. Pogba’s strike, meanwhile, means he has reached double figures for league goals in a season for the first time in his career.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errorscenter_img Metro Sport ReporterSaturday 9 Feb 2019 1:18 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link3.2kShares Commentlast_img read more

There’s no better way to sell a property. “Auctions will deliver to an owner exactly where the market is so they can make an informed decision on whether to sell or not.”This is a snapshot of the auction results across the city in the past week. 61A and 61B Kewarra St, Kewarra Beach 13 Bellevue Crescent, Edge Hill Kim Ryan and Nadine Edwards – LJ Hooker Cairns Edge Hill – PASSED IN 15 Darkin Close, Smithfield Ray White Cairns Beaches principal Paul Stirling hosts an auction via livestream.

Pic: iStock.AUCTION activity across Cairns has been heating up with the past week one of the city’s busiest in recent months. As sellers look to extract the most value out of their homes during a time of high property demand and low stock, auctions are again slowly becoming a desirable method of sale, after lockdowns had led to a point where the Far North went without one for weeks at a time. In recent weeks, Cairns agents had been urging vendors to consider auctioning their property following competitive market conditions.Agents were reporting they were conducting silent auctions anyway — with multiple offers on listed properties outbidding each other and buyers missing out on homes due to the competition.

ICC World Cup Eoin Morgan’s 140 off 71 balls gave England thumping win over Afghanistan

first_img New Delhi : Eoin Morgan’s 148 off 71 deliveries at Old Trafford in Manchester turned out to be too much for Afghanistan team as they looked all over the place against the number one ranked side in the World. England started off the game with a decent partnership up front, with James Vince and Jonny Bairstow being able to hammer the ball all around the ground. Once the former departed, Bairstow took the charge and scored yet another half-century in the tournament. The collective effort from the team helped England to post a mammoth total on the board. In response, Afghanistan played their heart out but fell short by a huge margin of 150 runs. Before the start of the game, if there were any doubts that the English skipper, Eoin Morgan may not be fully fit for the game against Afghanistan, he gave the most emphatic answer as he smashed the fourth fastest World Cup century – off just 57 balls to give his side a total of 397/6 against a hapless Afghanistan side on Tuesday.England had been provided a solid start thanks to James Vince and Jonny Bairstow. Vince had replaced the injured Jason Roy for this game, and although not as destructive, he strung together well with Bairstow to take England to 44 before falling to Dawlat Zadran. Root and Bairstow started off cautiously but slowly grew more confident as they spent more time in the middle to register a hundred-plus run partnership. Afghanistan’s spinners struggled to get any control over the batsmen, with their premier spinners – Rashid and Nabi – failing to put a lid on the scoring. England’s middle-order showed their class and eventually helped the side to be in a very strong position. Moeen Ali provided some more power hitting late into the innings, with 31 off 9 balls as England narrowly missed out on 400. In response, Afghanistan lost Noor Ali Zadran for a duck with England’s lethal speedster Jofra Archer providing the first blood. Gulbadin Naib and Rahmat Shah strung a 48-run partnership, with Gulbandin Naib being the aggressor. However, just when the duo was starting to look good, Mark Wood, who produced the fastest delivery of World Cup 2019, sent the opener back into the hut. Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi ticked ones and twos and a boundary on a few occasions to let the Afghanistan scoreboard ticking, but chasing a big target, the team required some aerial shots which team lacked by some margin. Once Shah departed, Asghar Afghan and Hashmatullah Shahidi registered the highest ever partnership for Afghanistan in World Cups. However, the required run rate went over 10, and pressure started to loom over both the batsmen. Eventually, the wickets started to tumble, and the Afghanistan team never recovered and suffered an embarrassing loss.  England registered their fourth win the tournament. Afghanistan has now suffered five losses in World Cup 2019. Afghanistan will play their next game against India on June 22.  highlightscenter_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Folt announces expanded financial aid offerings

first_img“If you take the house out of that equation, it means that students can get more aid,” Folt said. “It produces a burden on families because we understand that your house is something that they fight hard to get and so we wanted that to be an important aspect of our plan.” According to the news release, USC’s undergraduate students currently receive more than $640 million in aid funds from all sources for tuition and expenses. The University’s need-based grant funding has been expanded by more than 60% since 2010. Currently, more than 21% of undergraduates are from low-income families and two-thirds of students receive financial aid. According to a news release from Folt’s office, the new policy will increase undergraduate aid by more than $30 million annually and will take effect for students of the Class of 2024 and later. It is expected to impact more than 4,000 students once implemented. For current students, financial aid  is determined on a case-by-case basis. Homeownership was counted as an asset and used as a factor for determining financial aid for each student. The policy change will ensure that housing is not a factor when making aid determinations. Removing house ownership as a factor means that a standardized process will be used in determining aid, Folt said.  President Carol Folt announced Thursday that USC will make tuition free for students with a family income of $80,000 or less. This change, along with the decision to not consider homeownership when determining a student’s financial need, is expected to benefit low- and middle-income families, according to USC. Provost Charles Zukoski, Vice President for Admissions and Planning Katharine Harrington, the Office of Financial Aid and academic deans also worked toward the new policy, according to the news release.  “When it’s fully implemented, $30 million a year or more … should translate directly into students’ pockets and into their families,” Folt said. “I believe that their loan debt will go down, and I think it will really encourage and make some students who would really like to come here able to come here.” “I’m very determined and committed to making sure that we are able to educate students, independent of their background or ability to pay, and this is an important step to continue in that direction,” she said.  The University will not consider homeownership or the value of parents’ residences as a factor in the calculation of first-year students’ financial aid. The move is intended to increase affordability, President Carol Folt said. (Vincent Leo | Daily Trojan) Folt said one of her priorities is to increase affordability and accessibility at USC, which is a goal she hopes to achieve with the implementation of the financial aid plan.  Folt said the University will continue its need-blind policy when admitting students to USC alongside the changes to the financial aid policy.last_img read more
