Moments after the penalty — contentiously awarded after Wilfried Zaha fell easily under a challenge from Raheem Sterling — came a robust foul on De Bruyne by Jason Puncheon as City launched a counterattack.

City failed in a late bid for Sanchez on the final day of the summer transfer window.His display at West Brom would have impressed Guardiola. The Chile forward looked Arsenal’s most likely route to a goal before he curled in a free kick that deflected off the leg of James McClean, who turned his back in the defensive wall, and ricocheted in after 83 minutes.Arsenal was on course to move within a point of fourth-place Liverpool, only for the controversially awarded penalty that left Wenger furious on the touchline. Rodriguez sidefooted his spot kick down the middle to earn West Brom a point.Wenger said the awarding of the penalty was “difficult to accept,” and complained about the standard of refereeing. He also criticized the scheduling of matches over Christmas that left Arsenal with games against Crystal Palace and West Brom in a span of less than 72 hours. West Brom had two more days’ rest than Arsenal from its last game.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours View comments
Tag: 上海lf验证归来 Sterling Fails To Block Clippers’ Sale
LOS ANGELES — Donald Sterling’s latest effort to block the $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was rejected Aug. 13 by a California appeals court.The 2nd District Court of Appeal issued a brief order saying it couldn’t halt a sale that had been completed.“The evidence before this court indicates the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to Steven Ballmer has closed,” the court wrote. “Thus, there is nothing for this court to stay.”Even if the sale hadn’t closed, the three judges said the former owner failed to show he was harmed enough to get a temporary stay.Ballmer sealed the deal Aug. 12 after a probate judge cleared the way for Sterling’s estranged wife to sell the team. The Los Angeles Superior Court judge said Shelly Sterling could complete the sale she negotiated after removing her husband of 58 years from the family trust that owned the team because of questions about his mental competence.At the time she negotiated the record price for an NBA team the league was threatening to seize the team and auction it after banning Donald Sterling for life for making derogatory remarks about blacks.Sterling’s lawyers, who acknowledged in recent court filings that he isn’t a sympathetic figure, derided the “popular” ruling against the unpopular owner. They said they were deeply disappointed with the appellate order.“He has been deprived from ownership of the Clippers after 33 years without being accorded appellate review of this harsh result,” attorneys Max Blecher and Bobby Samini said in a written statement.Ballmer’s lawyer, Adam Streisand, said they were “supremely confident” that even with further Sterling appeals, Ballmer is the “undisputed owner.”“Clipper nation rejoices,” Streisand said. “He’s got the ability to seek review by the California Supreme Court, where he has a one in 2 billion chance.”Shelly Sterling’s lawyer said she was thrilled to have the court’s blessing. “It is time for Donald to accept that the game is over and he has run out of courts,” attorney Pierce O’Donnell said in a statement.Donald Sterling, 80, a billionaire lawyer who bought the team in 1981 for $12 million, still has lawsuits pending in state and federal court against the NBA. He has vowed to fight the league for the rest of his life.His lawyers said he will be vindicated in the federal case.(BRIAN MELLEY)TweetPinShare0 Shares
