Lacazette doubles up in Arsenal’s comfortable win at Sheffield United
This was never going to be the night that will define Arsenal’s season and the level of pressure Mikel Arteta will face in the months ahead: that is in five days’ time in Prague. But with that in mind, a performance and a result to set up a match which will dictate whether the Gunners’ best avenue into Europe next season remains open was certainly welcome for Arteta.Granted, if they could have handpicked a side to face ahead of their return leg against Slavia Prague on Thursday, it would have been Sheffield United. Painfully lacking in quality once again here, their relegation from the Premier League could be confirmed as soon as next weekend after another meek display against a side themselves somewhat shorn of confidence following recent displays.

Climate Change: Ade on the Frontline review – an intensifying crisis
Ade Adepitan travels to the Pacific to see how the climate emergency is shrinking the land and killing the future – and to ask what, if anything can be done to halt the destructionAde Adepitan addresses what he calls “the elephant in the room” fairly early on in his new three-part series, Climate Change: Ade on the Frontline (BBC Two). For the purposes of this show, Adepitan travels first to the Solomon Islands, then to Australia, ending this first stage of his trip in Tasmania. He is, he says, aware that flying to these places is not ideal, but he believes it is important to “see and meet the people being impacted by climate change every day”.One of the most successful points made by the series is that the people being severely impacted by climate change are rarely the people who have contributed much to its increasingly rapid and destructive march. In the Solomon Islands, he meets a woman who would hop across the water to visit the small island where her grandparents had a home. It used to be dense forest. She shows Adepitan a photograph from 10 years ago, and it looks like paradise. She takes him out to its location on a boat, where dead or dying branches of trees now poke out of the water where paradise once stood. The island is gone. Others nearby are becoming smaller by the year. Continue reading...
