Arsenal's Arsene Wenger blames Newcastle defeat on fatigue from Moscow trip
Calum Chambers somehow managed to stick the ball wide after Mustafi headed Granit Xhaka's pass across goal following a free-kick. It's a damning verdict for a player who is by far the most expensive defender Arsenal have ever bought.

The shutdown was called by Pratyeka Hoda Sadhana Samithi (The people's forum to fight for special status) and was being backed by the YSR Congress party, the Left parties, Congress and Jana Sena. On the other hand, the Left parties staged a protest on National Highway 18, which connects Kolkata and Chennai. Slamming the chief minister for maintaining "double standards", YSRC political affairs committee member Ambati Rambabu told news agency PTI, "When Naidu was the opposition leader, he had called for bandhs on many occasions, but as a chief minister he is now opposing them (bandhs), saying they hinder development".

Asserting that he contested from Dhone against the families of stalwarts such as former Chief Minister K. Vijayabhaskar Reddy and Deputy Chief Minister K.E. Krishnamurthy on the advice of TDP founder N.T. Rama Rao and won as MLA for three terms, he said Mr. Naidu owed an explanation for insulting him.

Rambabu also alleged that the Naidu government has been issuing notices to those supporting the bandh, saying cases would be booked against them.

"Instead of extending support to get SCS, Naidu has shown his true intent by using force and official machinery to foil the bandh held by various parties and organisations seeking SCS for the State", he added. Subsequently, TDP withdrew 2 ministers from the union cabinet and pulled out from the NDA coalition altogether.
