Arsenal Stars Are Sick Of SANCHEZ.

Wilshere confronted him, players want him gone and they don't celebrate his goals... 

Alexis Sanchez's face was a picture as several of his team-mates declined to join him in celebrating Arsenal's second goal on Thursday night. In truth, he shouldn't have been so surprised. If he didn't know about their feelings towards him before, he would have got the gist during a dressing-room inquest after Arsenal scraped a 1-1 draw at Southampton earlier this month. Sanchez wasn't at his best at St Mary's — a common theme so far this season. After the final whistle, a group of players made their feelings clear.

Game Of Thrones Stars' Salaries Are Unveiled

A new report from Hollywood trade magazine Variety has revealed that Game Of Thrones' British stars Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington and Lena Headey are each earning an eye-watering $500,000 for each episode of HBO's ratings juggernaut.

Interestingly, the big unveiling - which also shows co-stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage picking up the same hefty wage - also reveals that there's no gender pay gap between the stars, standing in contrast to the BBC's recent scandal.

The five actors, who have been a part of the popular fantasy drama since it first aired in 2011, sit at the top of the pile of the show's big earners.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for TV network HBO for comment.

Game Of Thrones, whose seventh season finale is set to air on Sunday, currently shows Kit's Jon Snow joining forces with Emilia's Mother of Dragons Daenerys to take on Lena's sinister and ruthless Cersei as their battle for the throne comes to a head.

Apple Faces Lawsuits After Saying It Slows Down Aging iPhones

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc defrauded iPhone users by slowing devices without warning to compensate for poor battery performance, according to eight lawsuits filed in various federal courts in the week since the company opened up about the year-old software change.

The tweak may have led iPhone owners to misguided attempts to resolve issues over the last year, the lawsuits contend.

All the lawsuits - filed in U.S. District Courts in California, New York and Illinois - seek class-action to represent potentially millions of iPhone owners nationwide.

A similar case was lodged in an Israeli court on Monday, the newspaper Haaretz reported.

Apple did not respond to an email seeking comment on the filings.

The company acknowledged last week for the first time in detail that operating system updates released since "last year" for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE and iPhone 7 included a feature "to smooth out" power supply from batteries that are cold, old or low on charge.

Juan Mata has revealed how Zlatan Ibrahimovic made quite the first impression on Manchester United's staff when he first arrived at the club.

Ibrahimovic joined United on a free transfer in the summer of 2016, and the famously charismatic Swede introduced himself - tongue in cheek - as 'God'.

Mata revealed how the striker had the kit men 'shaking' with his typically bold demeanour and sense of humour after his move from Paris St Germain.

Mata told FourFourTwo: 'The day he arrived, we were away on pre-season, so he was on his own with the kit men at the training ground.

'They had never met him before and he's the sort of guy that garners instant respect because of the way he carries himself. Zlatan apparently looked the kit men up and down and said: "I hope you know God has arrived."

Won in 65 seconds

Lukaku and Rashford turn United's fortunes around to seal top spot in group after they had trailed CSKA

For Manchester United, a return to the high plain of Champions League knockout football and, in the process, some sign of the indomitability they used to display on this ground. Their unbeaten run here extends to 40 games. 

Not since the Matt Busby days of the mid-1960s have they been able to say that. It wasn’t a tour de force. There was profligacy in the first half and punishment for it when they trailed against the run of play at half-time. 

Winning Group A also brings no guarantees, as any one of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus or Porto — all second-place finishers — could lie ahead in Monday’s draw. However the turnaround — two goals in 65 seconds just beyond the hour — was quite beautiful in its execution and it was the impact on preparations for Manchester City, four days away, which consumed every United mind.

A top Chinese general hanged himself after coming under investigation for corruption charges, China's state-run news agency Xinhua reported Tuesday.

General Zhang Yang, the former head of the Chinese military's political work department, was found dead at his home on November 23, the news agency said.
Military investigators had launched an investigation into Zhang's ties to two former Central Military Commission vice chairmen -- Guo Boxiong and Xu Caihou -- who fell prey to President Xi Jinping's massive anti-corruption campaign.

Xinhua said investigators found Zhang had seriously violated party discipline and broke the law by allegedly giving and accepting bribes as well as possessing a huge amount of money, the sources of which he could not account for.
He was allowed to stay at home during the early stages of the investigation, the report said.

Zhang was a member of the Central Military Commission, which runs the two-million strong People's Liberation Army.

More than 1.4 million people have been punished under Xi's anti-corruption campaign since 2012, according to state media, including around 300 senior officials.
