Arsenal 0 Aston Villa 3

Ollie Watkins said it was “unbelievable” to score against the team he supports as his double helped Aston Villa claim an impressive victory at Arsenal to move up to sixth in the Premier League. The visitors took the lead midway through the first half when Bukayo Saka turned Matt Targett’s cross into his own net. Watkins, who scored a hat-trick in a 7-2 win against champions Liverpool earlier this season, made it 2-0 with a header towards the end of the second half and scored his second soon after, slotting the ball under Bernd Leno after a quick break. The 24-year-old, who has now scored six goals this season, added: “I think I have another level.

The Gunners had gone into this game looking to build on their impressive 1-0 win against Manchester United last time out, but despite dominating possession they created very little, with Alexandre Lacazette going closest when he headed over Kieran Tierney’s cross. Instead, it was Villa who always looked the most likely to score and they could have won by an even bigger margin. The visitors had a goal ruled out inside the first minute when John McGinn thumped home Jack Grealish’s cross. However, after a lengthy check by the video assistant referee, it was ruled out as Ross Barkley, who was in an offside position, was adjudged to have been in goalkeeper Leno’s way.

Egypt midfielder Trezeguet forced a good save from Leno early in the second half before the Arsenal keeper denied Grealish at the near post with a strong hand, while the Aston Villa captain also had an effort cleared off the line. Defeat leaves an inconsistent Arsenal 11th in the table while the win maintained Villa’s 100% away record so far this season. This defeat will prove particularly concerning for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who appeared to have rectified issues with a defence that conceded goals far too easily last season. Going into the match they boasted the Premier League’s best defence, having conceded just seven goals in seven games, and it was the Gunners’ struggles at the other end of the pitch that Arteta would have been hoping to see an improvement in. But once again the hosts lacked creativity and managed just two shots on target all game, neither of which posed any real danger to their former goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

RIP Alex Trebek

Alex Trebek, the genial¬†“Jeopardy!”¬†host with all the answers and a reassuring presence in the TV game-show landscape for five decades, has died. He was 80 years old. “Jeopardy! is saddened to share that Alex Trebek passed away peacefully at home early this morning, surrounded by family and friends,” said¬†a statement shared on the show’s Twitter account¬†Sunday. “Thank you, Alex.”The cause of death was not immediately announced. Trebek revealed in March 2019¬†he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, triggering an outpouring of support and well wishes at the time.

Over 37 seasons, Trebek hosted more than 8,200 episodes of “Jeopardy!,” the most by a presenter of any single TV game show, according to a statement from Sony Pictures.But despite the 35 years he spent on “Jeopardy!,” the syndicated quiz show where answers are presented in the form of a question, Trebek wasn’t exactly an overnight success. Born in Sudbury, Canada, he studied philosophy before becoming a journalist, working as a reporter for the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

In 1966, while still in his mid-20s, he switched from journalism to hosting game shows, starting with a quiz show titled “Reach for the Top,” and followed a few years later by another, “Jackpot.” It wasn’t until 1984 that Trebek landed what turned out to be his big break, when producer-host Merv Griffin chose him to emcee a revival of “Jeopardy!,” which was paired with another hit game show, “Wheel of Fortune.” His longevity was reflected in a personal milestone, when he passed “The Price is Right’s” Bob Barker in the Guinness Book of Records as the person who had hosted the most game-show episodes.

Trebek had multiple guest appearances on other television shows, ranging from Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2008 and 2011 to the The Colbert Report series-finale. In August 1995 in a return to his broadcast-news roots, Trebek filled in for Charles Gibson for a week on Good Morning America. Trebek was a guest star in season 3 of The X-Files, playing one of two “Men in Black” (human agents charged with the supervision of extraterrestrial lifeforms on Earth, hiding their existence from other humans) opposite Jesse Ventura, in the episode “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space”, which first aired on April 12, 1996. Trebek also appeared in multiple television commercials.

Trebek married broadcaster Elaine Callei in 1974. The couple had no children and divorced in 1981, although Trebek adopted Callei’s daughter Nicky. In 1990, he married Jean Currivan, a real estate project manager from New York. They had two children, Matthew and Emily.
