BIRMINGHAM, England -- Arsenal scored two goals in the space of 59 seconds on its way
#1
BIRMINGHAM, England -- Arsenal scored two goals in the space of 59 seconds on its way to a 2-1 win over Aston Villa that put the visitors back on top of the Premier League on Monday. Cheap New York Giants Jerseys China . Jack Wilsheres 34th-minute opener was quickly followed by a well-taken goal by Olivier Giroud, which proved to be enough to lift Arsenal back above Manchester City and Chelsea after their victories at the weekend. Belgium striker Christian Benteke scored his first goal since mid-September to give Villa hope in the 76th minute but the home side couldnt find an equalizer despite late pressure. "The first half was more about playing, and the second half was more about fighting," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. With its fourth straight league win, Arsenal restored its one-point lead over City after 21 matches. To cap another disappointing result at Villa Park for the mid-table hosts, Villa defender Nathan Baker was carried off on a stretcher in the 21st minute after briefly losing consciousness when he was hit straight in the face by a shot from Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry. Baker required oxygen and a neck brace after being treated on the field for seven minutes. He was later diagnosed with mild concussion, according to broadcaster Sky Sports. The pressure was on Arsenal after seeing the rest of the top seven all pick up victories by two-goal margins over the weekend. However, save for a worrying last 15 minutes when Villa rallied gamely, the Gunners passed the ball much better and always looked the likely winners. Wilsheres goal came when he ran onto a cut-back from left back Nacho Monreal, took a touch and shot low in to the bottom corner to the left of goalkeeper Brad Guzan. Just seventeen seconds after the restart, the ball hit the back of the net again. This time Wilshere was the provider, the England midfielder collecting a loose ball and playing a sublime pass through to Giroud, who brought the ball down well and fired across Guzan into the corner. It was the France strikers ninth league goal of the season on his return to the first team after a spell out through injury and illness. Villa had only scored seven goals in its previous 10 home games this season so a comeback was unlikely, even if memories were relatively fresh of a surprise win at Arsenal on the first day of the season. However, when Benteke stooped to head in Matthew Lowtons fine cross at full stretch after Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla sloppily gave possession away, it was all to play for with 14 minutes left. Bentekes downward header, saved comfortably by Wojciech Szczesny, was the closest Villa came to earning a point. "Its a massive three points, especially because we dropped a bit in the second half," Wilshere said. "We have done that a few times, letting teams come on to us, but we dealt well with it."

Gasquet next plays third-seeded Jerzy Janowicz of Poland, who won had 18 aces in a 6-2, 6-4 win against seventh-seeded Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France. Authentic New York Giants Jerseys . Thats 14 consecutive losses to the two-time defending champs, and most of them were over before they even began. Result notwithstanding, Sundays game had a very different feel to it. http://www.cheapgiantsjerseyselite.com/ .com) - Bradley Beal deposited a season-high 33 points and John Wall posted another double-double as the Washington Wizards went on the road and beat the Houston Rockets, 104-103.MINNEAPOLIS -- The Los Angeles Angels have been winning lately with contributions from different players each game. On Sunday, everyone took a turn. Mike Trout, Howie Kendrick and C.J. Cron all homered, C.J. Wilson earned his 11th win, and the major league-leading Angels routed Minnesota 14-4 to complete a season sweep of the last-place Twins. Almost every Angels starter had a hit, and six drove in runs. Kendrick led the way with three hits and four RBIs. Trout, Cron and Chris Iannetta each drove in a pair of runs, and the AL West leaders had a season-high 19 hits to complete their fifth four-game sweep this season, extending a franchise record. "Weve been winning ballgames. I think thats kind of the key thing whether we get a lot of hits or a couple of hits, all it comes down to is winning the game," Kendrick said. The Angels finished the season 7-0 against Minnesota. With the outcome virtually assured in the eighth, the game resembled a spring training matchup with each team trotting out seldom-used youngsters. Shawn OMalley got a hit in his first major league at-bat in the ninth off Minnesota reliever Caleb Thielbar. "They kept swinging, the ball kept flying," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Just one of those days." Wilson (11-9) overcame some early struggles to limit Minnesota to four hits while striking out six in 6 1-3 innings. He walked three straight batters to start the second. All three came around to score, giving Minnesota a 3-1 lead, but Wilson retired 13 of his next 14 hitters. "After the first two innings, you look up and I think he had over 50 pitches, wasnt out of the second yet," manager Mike Scioscia said. "And then he ends up going though, almost finishing the seventh. That says a lot." Trouts two-run homer in the third off rookie Logan Darnell (0-2) tied it. "Especially after we scored, we got those runs back, I felt like, OK, were going to score runs today," Wilson said. And did they ever. Kendrick had a two-run triple in the fifth, and Cron launched a two-run shot off reliever A.J. Achter in a six-run sixth..dddddddddddd Chris Iannettas two-run single made it 12-3. The Angels added a pair of runs off reliever Ryan Pressly in the seventh on RBI singles by OMalley and Kendrick. Kennys Vargas hit a 451-foot homer in the eighth off Los Angeles reliever Vinnie Pestano to make it 14-4. Wade LeBlanc pitched a scoreless ninth for the Angels. "We hung in there the first three days and had chances. Today they just dominated us," Gardenhire said. GOING CYCLING? Kendrick went 10 for 18 with two doubles, two triples, a home run, three runs and eight RBIs in the series. He needed a double on Sunday to hit for the cycle; on Saturday night, he needed a homer. "Itd have been cool to do it, but at the same time its part of the game," Kendrick said. "I knew once we went up by quite a few runs, Mike was going to make a couple changes. That was part of the game." TRAINERS ROOM Angels: LF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) was a late scratch and missed his third straight game since leaving Thursday nights game. Hamilton was supposed to bat cleanup, but was pulled about an hour before the first pitch, forcing Scioscia to reshuffle his lineup. "He felt good the first round of BP and then it started to stiffen up a little bit," the manager said, adding the team will re-evaluate Hamilton on Monday. Twins: CF Jordan Schafer (bruised ribs) felt better after taking some practice swings and was available off the bench. Minnesota closer Glen Perkins (neck) and SS Danny Santana (back) are still day to day. Gardenhire said the team doesnt expect Santana to miss too many games after straining his lower back while throwing home on Saturday night. Perkins will likely play catch on Tuesday. UP NEXT The Angels make a quick detour to Cleveland for a makeup game Monday before heading to Texas for a three-game series. Angels RHP Jered Weaver (15-8) is 8-2 with a 3.44 ERA in his last 15 starts. Hell face RHP Danny Salazar (6-6). The Twins have Monday off before heading to Cleveland for a three-game series. RHP Trevor May (1-4) faces Indians righty Trevor Bauer (5-7).
