On the ManeLiverpool’s Sadio Mane took his tally for the season to four goals in four games at Leicester on Saturday © AFP / Oli SCARFFThe stunning form of Mohamed Salah left Sadio Mane in the shade when praise was dished out for Liverpool’s run to the Champions League final and the top four last season.However, with Salah struggling to match those standards early on in his second season, Mane is showing why he was considered the man Liverpool couldn’t cope without early in Jurgen Klopp’s reign.A 2-1 win at Leicester on Saturday ensured Klopp’s men still haven’t dropped a point and Mane has been the key figure with four goals in as many games.Liverpool were once again not at their free-flowing best with Salah subbed 20 minutes from time, but Mane’s goals have kept their bid for a first league title since 1990 intact while the Egyptian gets back up to speed.Alonso makes Chelsea clickChelsea manager Maurizio Sarri hailed Marcos Alonso as the best left-back in Europe after another fine performance against Bournemouth © AFP / Ian KINGTONChelsea sit alongside Liverpool with a perfect record despite new boss Maurizio Sarri’s fears it would take time to impose a very different style to his predecessor Antonio Conte.A move to a back four should in theory have curbed Marcos Alonso’s rampaging runs forward from left-back, but instead the Spaniard has been Chelsea’s most potent offensive weapon so far this season.Alonso scored the winner in a 3-2 thrillier against Arsenal, won penalties in victories at Huddersfield and Newcastle and now has two assists to his name after playing a part in both goals in a 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.“Alonso, at the moment, this position at left-back is maybe the best in Europe,” said an impressed Sarri.Mourinho out of troubleJose Mourinho was relieved as Manchester United ended their losing run © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYWith the vultures circling over Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho was given a welcome boost by Romelu Lukaku as Manchester United ended their two-game losing streak with a 2-0 win at Burnley.United boss Mourinho was reportedly in danger of losing his job if his spluttering side crashed to a third successive defeat.Already off to their worst start for 26 years amid Mourinho’s feud with United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, over transfer policy, and star midfielder Paul Pogba, over a perceived lack of effort, this was a must-win game for the Portuguese coach.Lukaku’s double was just reward for a solid United performance despite Marcus Rashford’s red card for a headbutt.Arsenal pass test of mettleArsenal’s Aaron Ramsey stood up to Cardiff’s physical test © AFP / Geoff CADDICKWith Cardiff boss Neil Warnock vowing to get his players to “rough up” Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey, Unai Emery’s side knew they were in for a fight in south Wales.Warnock’s aggressive team were as promised, producing a no-holds-barred display in front of a passionate crowd at the Cardiff City Stadium.Twice Cardiff came from behind to draw level in the kind of difficult match that often ended in disaster for Arsenal in the latter stages of the Arsene Wenger era.But, on this occasion at least, the Gunners showed some backbone, winning 3-2 thanks to Alexandre Lacazette’s late goal.It was their first away win of the season and offered encouragement that Emery is capable of fixing Arsenal’s numerous flaws.Is Mitrovic Rafa’s regret?Aleksandar Mitrovic has made a fine start to the season with Fulham © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVAleksandar Mitrovic sits alongside Mane as the Premier League’s top scorer after netting for the fourth time in three games for Fulham in a 2-2 draw at Brighton.The Serbian has now scored more goals on his own than former club Newcastle, who lie in the bottom three after a 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.Much has been made of Magpies owner Mike Ashley’s failure to back Rafa Benitez in the transfer market.But Benitez himself has to carry some of the blame for Newcastle’s lack of firepower as he was happy to send Mitrovic out on loan to Craven Cottage last season before making that deal permanent for a reported £22 million.Mitrovic had already been worth that fee for Fulham in firing them to promotion with 12 goals in 20 games during his loan spell and his goals are making the Londoners look more likely to remain in the top flight than Newcastle at present.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Victory for Manchester United at Burnley eased the pressure on manager Jose MourinhoLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 2 – Liverpool head into the international break on top of the table as Sadio Mane inspired their hard-fought win at Leicester, while Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso has made a fine start to the season for Maurizio Sarri’s team.Here are five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend:
With a last gasp free-kick, Lucas Piazon earned Frankfurt all three points in a narrow 2-1 win against Hamburg.Piazon was loaned to the German club by Chelsea in the summer and his stunning effort is among the Bundesliga goal of the month contenders.He arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2012 and won the FA Youth Cup, while he has also spent time on loan at Malaga and Vitesse Arnhem.Other impressive strikes in the video include a powerful Robert Lewandowski effort for Bayern Munich.
1 Video: Roberto Soldado scores on his Villarreal debut After we all had a laugh at his Villarreal unveiling, Roberto Soldado scored on his debut for the Spanish club.The striker made the move from Tottenham earlier in the transfer window and when meeting his new fans, failed to find any of them when kicking footballs into the stands.But on La Liga’s opening day, Soldado put his side ahead in their 1-1 draw with Real Betis. He spent two seasons at Spurs, but found goals hard to come by and claimed he lost his confidence during his stay.Check out the goal below.
Jesse Lingard celebrates scoring for England’s U21s 1 Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard has been called into the England squad ahead of Tuesday’s game against France.The 22-year-old will join up with the squad on Sunday to help bolster Roy Hodgson’s ranks after two players were forced out through injury.Lingard’s Old Trafford team-mate Michael Carrick was carried off in the last minute of England’s 2-0 defeat to Spain on Friday.Carrick has returned to his club and will not be available for England’s final game of the year.Meanwhile Jamie Vardy, who sat out the game in Alicante with a knock sustained in Leicester’s Barclays Premier League encounter with Watford last weekend, will also miss Tuesday’s match with the French.England returned from Spain on Saturday and, following the tragic events in Paris on Friday night, it was decided that the meeting with France would go ahead.As planned, Hodgson’s squad dispersed for 24 hours shortly after landing on home soil and will regroup at their Hertfordshire base on Sunday evening.It will be Lingard’s first time with the senior squad, though the former Birmingham and Brighton loanee has made 11 appearances for the under-21s.He made his debut at under-21 level as a substitute against Scotland when Hodgson took charge of the team in August 2013.

WEST COVINA – SWAT team member Pete Gallardo took cover behind stacked boxes.He didn’t send a dog or a robot out to check if someone was lurking around the corner.Instead, the West Covina officer bent the end of his weapon and a monitor showed him the masked man by the wall. A laser also helped pinpoint where his shot would be.“There is no other device in the market that allows you to look around the corner from a position of safety,” Gallardo said.He thought it was a great tool for the police.The West Covina Police Department is testing a new weapon that shoots around corners and was developed by former members of the Israeli forces. Called Corner Shot, a pistol is attached to a unit which comes equipped with a video camera, a monitor, a flashlight and a laser. It costs $6,500. The front section bends 63 degrees to the left or right.The department has the device until next week. However, on Monday Chief Frank Wills said he decided not to buy it.To include everything they want plus taxes would mean paying about $8,000, he said.“It’s a good weapon. It tested well but in light of the cost, not just prudent,” Wills said. “There are other, higher priority items like our automatic weapons. They’re about 15 years old. And on a more basic level, our detectives are driving cars barely running.”Corner Shot has two versions in production, according to Stefan Von Bjorn, vice president of United Armourers Inc., which is one of the weapon’s distributors.He said there’s a Corner Shot for pistols and there’s the Corner Shot 40 that lobs a grenade up to 385 yards.The Israeli police, British Army, British Special Air Service and Santa Ana police have Corner Shot, Von Bjorn said. firstname.lastname@example.org(626)962-8811,Ext. 2718

Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Walled gardens are already under attack because of the ease of sending content like messages and photos from one website to another. Sites that don’t let content flow in and out freely, when that’s what users want, are fighting against the powerful tide of the internet.Now a new proposal aims to take things to the next level and send a payload of item-type specific action options along with every piece of content that gets shot across the internet. A loose body of innovators from some of the biggest social networking companies online have begun discussing an addition to the Activity Streams standard format called an Action Stream. That could blow the world of social networking wide open, allowing users to try out other competing social networks without losing their ability to interact with friends on Facebook, for example. Earlier this month social software designer Adrian Chan offered up a proposal for what he called Action Streams. Tags:#Features#news#NYT#social networks#web Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification marshall kirkpatrick Related Posts A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Action streams would not only share status/activity update meta-data but also permit updates to function as actions. For example, an invitation update posted in twitter could be accepted in Buzz. The vision for action streams thus involves a distributed and decentralized ecosystem of coupled action posts, rendered by third party stream clients and within participating social networks.This idea was added tonight to the Activity Streams wiki where it will be discussed by the community building the Activity Streams format. The standard types of actions that can be taken in regard to content items of the same categories on Amazon and Facebook were listed as prior art. The discussion has just begun, and data interoperability isn’t something that everyone at big social networks agrees is in their best short-term interests. These idea are exciting and are supported by a substantial number of people, though. The Activity Streams discussion is participated in by engineers from companies like Google, Facebook, Nokia, Yahoo and others. Chris Messina, who joined Google in January, is one of the key voices, and semantic web builder Monica Keller, who left MySpace for Facebook last month, appears to be taking an even more active role in the effort than she had before.If Activity Streams with Actions can be implemented effectively, that would mean not only that you could participate in any social network you choose and still read messages from outside that network – you could also interact with them from those other networks as well. RSVP to Facebook event invites, tag yourself in photos, etc. without visiting Facebook, but from within whichever social network won your heart through its superior features or design.You could interact with your friends on Google Buzz from inside Facebook, or from a social network that doesn’t even exist yet. More and better social networks would spring into existence because the ability to see and interact with friends would no longer be a scarce resource hoarded by the biggest social networks.If you think social networking is a world-changing phenomenon today, imagine what it might be like if interoperable social networks sprung up like wildflowers. It’s one thing to make content available in a standard format – but making some basic actions transmittable and standardized would make the prospect of communication across networks all the more real and powerful. That could mean an environment ripe for innovation and a better experience every day for users. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos
