Arsenal news: Valencia eye summer deal for Theo Walcott

The attacker has made only seven starts for the Gunners this term, with them all arriving in either the Europa League or EFL Cup. The limited game time means Walcott is now almost certain to make Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup in Russia. The 28-year-old has come off the bench three times in the Premier League but he has struggled to make an impact. Manager Arsene Wenger is expected to lose Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in January with the pair out of contract at the end…

Lights on dwarf planet Ceres may be evidence of alien activity says NASA

Bright spots on the dwarf planet Ceres which were first spotted by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft could be a sign of a subsurface ocean, scientists have said, which in turn could lead to the discovery of life. Experts also state that the glowing features of the small world – which orbits the sun between Mars and Jupiter – is evidence of geological movements beneath the ground, such as moving plate tectonics. Carol Raymond, deputy principal investigator of the Dawn mission at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said: “The mysterious…

Key to ALIEN LIFE could be UNLOCKED by studying THIS incredible area in Antartica

Most of the ongoing search for alien life focuses on Mars, but of equal importance are icy moons like Enceladus and Europa which orbit Saturn and Jupiter and are similar to Antartica. “Extremophile” bacteria can survive in the harshest conditions on Earth and scientists hope they can survive off the planet. Australian microbiologist Belinda Ferrari said: “The big question has been how the microbes can survive when there is little water, the soils are very low in organic carbon and there is very little capacity to produce energy from the…

Arsenal team news: Predicted Arsenal line-up to face Southampton

Shkodran Mustafi looks set to miss Arsenal’s clash with Southampton this weekend with a thigh problem. The German defender almost left the club in January, but his recent strong run of form led to some good results for Arsenal. His absence will open the door for Per Mertesacker or Rob Holding to slot into Arsene Wenger’s increasingly settled starting line-up. The Gunners toppled BATE Borisov 6-0 in the Europa League using mainly fringe players, meaning the first team will be raring to go. Take a look through the gallery above…

Apollon 0 – Everton 3: Young Toffees show their class without Sam Allardyce

Ademola Lookman grabbed his chance to impress as the Toffees earned their first win in dismal Europa League campaign. But the stark reminder of just how bad this season has been so far for them was that even with this victory, their tally of four points is the worst ever recorded by an English team in the competition. Lookman’s double, which included a sublime second involving 26 passes, and Nikola Vlasic’s late strike added to an impressive display from some of Everton’s young stars. Sam Allardyce was not here but…

Arsenal 6 – BATE 0: Gunners storm to Europa League victory as Walcott and Wilshere shine

The Gunners were already tough to the last-32 stage before kick off and Arsene Wenger rested the majority of his first-team stars. And in front of a sparse crowd at the Emirates Arsenal put on a show. Long-forgotten defender Mathieu Debuchy opened the scoring in the 11th minute before Theo Walcott slid home to double Arsenal’s lead. Jack Wilshere then fired in a well-take effort two minutes before half time. BATE defender Dzyanis Palyakow smashed into his own net after the break, and Olivier Giroud made it five when converting…
