Three concerns for Arsenal

WELCOME BACK: Dortmund's Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa (above) posing for photos with fans after a training session.

There are three concerns for Arsenal tomorrow morning when they take on Borussia Dortmund.

The first is the lack of protection afforded the fullbacks by Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Oezil ahead of them. It was no surprise that Man City exploited this weakness at the weekend.

The second is the lack of cover at the back, a situation worsened by the loss of Mathieu Debuchy with an ankle injury. 

But Arsenal's third concern will be the effect that Shinji Kagawa will have on Dortmund.

The Japanese playmaker lit up the Bundesliga between 2010 and 2012, 
but he flopped in England and left Manchester United in a cut-price deal last month.

Having failed to score in 30 appearances last season, it took him 41 minutes to put the ball in the net for Dortmund last Saturday.

His strike helped his injury-ravaged club to a 3-1 win over Freiburg and lifted them to fourth place after three games.

United can win EPL title -- or maybe not

I want to win the Premier League title. If it is not this year, then the second or third year. I want to give a championship to the fans. — United manager Louis van Gaal (above).
In terms of character, it seems that United have signed a very solid citizen who should not only fit in well at Old Trafford but also adjust fairly quickly to the Premier League. — Pundit Alan Smith on United’s new signing Daley Blind (above)

Jump on board the bandwagon. Manchester United are trundling away with the Premier League title.

Their slalom around static poles posing as Queens Park Rangers footballers has fuelled frenzied talk of Premier League resurrection. But are they legitimate title contenders?

NEIL HUMPHREYS explains why they really can win the Premier League (and why they almost certainly cannot).

Among the reasons they can win the title is the signing of Angel di Maria and the decision by manager Louis van Gaal to revert to a four-man defence.

But the reasons why they can't win the title is the inconsistency of Robin van Persie and the defence,​ which has not stood the test of sterner opponents.

New Face 2014: Jessica

Jessica Lim likes to watch horror movies. Her favourite is The Conjuring.

She said: "I like to watch scary scenes, but I also try to show my friends I'm not scared."

Her other hobbies are less intense.

The 22-year-old also enjoys cafe-hopping with friends and taking photos.

"We go to different cafes and eat interesting food, and I post pictures of 'food porn' on Instagram."

She had "always dreamt" of modelling but "had trouble believing in that because it's a very competitive industry".

Over the past two years, she has been juggling her studies and her work at events.

What she likes most about her work is meeting people.

"Generally, a stranger's first impression of me is that I'm quite introverted, but in fact I'm not," she said.

"I am actually really chatty!"


On Oct 2, one young woman will be named The New Paper New Face 2014. She wins $10,000 cash and a feature in Her World magazine.

New Face has been instrumental in discovering new faces such as actresses Vanessa Vanderstraaten, Dawn Yeoh and Atikah Suhaime.
