Everton's Richarlison out of West Ham clash with knee issue

FILE PHOTO: Premier League - Everton v Brighton & Hove Albion

(Reuters) - Everton forward Richarlison will miss Saturday's Premier League trip to West Ham United with a minor knee injury, manager Carlo Ancelotti said on Friday.

The 22-year-old Brazil international, who last month signed a contract extension until 2024, has scored eight league goals in 22 games this season including the winner against Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend.

"We'll be without Richarlison for this game," Ancelotti told a news conference.

"He had a little problem yesterday on his knee in training. He had a little twist but nothing special -- a minor problem. I hope he'll be available on Tuesday against Newcastle United.

"We will be without Gylfi Sigurdsson (for West Ham). He has a minor groin issue. We're also recovering Alex Iwobi and I think he can play the next game (against Newcastle)."

Ancelotti said close-season signing Jean-Philippe Gbamin has started training with the team as he steps up his rehabilitation from thigh surgery, while fellow midfielder Andre Gomes is working individually following ankle surgery.

Everton are 11th in the table with 28 points from 22 games after winning three of their four games under Ancelotti.

    Michelle Obama petitioned to run as vice-president to stop Bernie Sanders, report says

    Fearing the selection of Bernie Sanders as the Democrats’ 2020 presidential nominee, a growing number of establishment party officials are reportedly considering Sherrod Brown as a late-entry “white knight” with Michelle Obama as a running mate.Other potential candidates floated by the party include Kamala Harris, who dropped out of the race in December, as well as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to the New York Times‘ interview with 93 party officials, all of whom are superdelegates who could determine the party’s nominee should a candidate emerge without a clear majority of delegate votes.

    Turkey hits 'all known' Syrian govt positions after soldiers killed in Idlib

    The Turkish army retaliated with artillery fire at Syrian government targets in Syria after an airstrike killed at least 33 Turkish soldiers in the northwestern Idlib province, Turkish officials said on Friday.The United Nations on Thursday (New York time, GMT-4) called for urgent action in northwest Syria, warning that, "the risk of greater escalation grows by the hour.""The Secretary-General reiterates his call for an immediate ceasefire and expresses particular concern about the risk to civilians from escalating military actions," spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement."Without urgent action, the risk of even greater escalation grows by the hour."'All known' targetsThe UN statement came as Turkey announced that "all known" Syrian government targets were under fire by Turkish air and land support units, according to state-run Anadolu news agency, quoting Turkey's communications director Fahrettin Altun on Friday. Turkey has decided to "respond in kind" to the attack by the Syrian government, Altun added.This announcement immediately after an air strike by Syrian regime forces against Turkish military in Idlib, as reported by Anadolu.Turkish officials gave a death toll of 33.After the attack, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held an extraordinary meeting on the situation in Idlib at his presidential complex in Ankara, attended by ministers and military officials.Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu spoke to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg by telephone, according to state-run Anadolu news agency. Stoltenberg condemned the strikes, according to a spokesman, describing them as "indiscriminate".The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a local monitor, gave a higher death toll, claiming 34 Turkish soldiers were killed.The deaths are the largest number of fatalities suffered by Turkish forces in a single day since Ankara started sending thousands of troops into Idlib in recent weeks in a bid to halt an advance by Syrian forces and their Russian allies.Russia and Turkey agreed in 2018 to create a demilitarised zone in Idlib in an accord that has since fallen through. Fighting in the northwestern Syrian province has sent hundreds of thousands of displaced people towards the Turkish border. Speaking in Washington, the US ambassador to NATO said Turkey should learn from clashes in Syria who its true friends are and drop its purchase from Russia of a major missile defence system. The Turks should see "who is their reliable partner and who isn't", Kay Bailey Hutchison told reporters."They see what Russia is, they see what they're doing now, and if they are attacking Turkish troops, then that should outweigh everything else that is happening between Turkey and Russia," she added.No-fly zoneUS Senator Lindsey Graham on Thursday called for the establishment of a no-fly zone over Syria's Idlib and called on President Donald Trump to help stop the killing of civilians there by Syrian government forces backed by Russia and Iran. "The world is sitting on its hands and watching the destruction of Idlib by Assad, Iran, and the Russians," Graham, a Republican and an ally of Trump, said in a statement. "I am confident if the world, led by the United States, pushed back against Iran, Russia, and Assad that they would stand down, paving the way for political negotiations to end this war in Syria." Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces have pushed hard in recent months to retake the last large rebel-held region in northwestern Syria after nine years of war that has displaced millions and killed hundreds of thousands.

    Aerial pictures reveal the damage caused by flooding in the city of Worcester and the surrounding county of Worcestershire - with public spaces, sports grounds and residential areas submerged in water.The River Severn burst its banks after reaching its highest ever level of 5.77m (19ft) on Thursday after several nights of heavy rain - with more downfalls forecast across ‘ten days of difficulty’.New pictures show Worcestershire Country Cricket ground and several rugby and football pitches flooded, as well as a branch of McDonald’s turned into an island by surrounding flood water.The Herefordshire and Worcestershire Environment Agency said 500 tonnes of water – the equivalent to six HGVs – was flowing through the city every second.Meanwhile in Ironbridge a severe danger to life notification remains in place after dozens of residents were evacuated when flood barriers buckled under the force of the water.Several bridges and barriers are also due to be inspected by Shropshire Council over fears the floods have eroded them, as Storm Gorge - the third named storm of 2020 - approaches this weekend.

    Coronavirus outbreak 'getting bigger', WHO says

    GENEVA/BEIJING (Reuters) - The rapid rise in coronavirus raised fears of a pandemic on Friday, with six countries reporting their first cases, the World Health Organization warning it could spread worldwide and Switzerland cancelling the giant Geneva car show. World share markets crashed again, winding up their worst week since the 2008 global financial crisis and bringing the global wipeout to $6 trillion. Hopes that the epidemic that started in China late last year would be over in months, and that economic activity would quickly return to normal, have been shattered as the number of international cases has spiralled.

    Arsenal out of Europa League as Olympiacos snatch dramatic extra-time winner

    Arsenal crashed out of the Europa League as Youssef El Arabi's goal in the last second of extra-time ensured Olympiacos advanced into the round of 16 after a dramatic victory at the Emirates Stadium.The Gunners were lacklustre and deserved nothing more than to be humbled, although the manner of the 2-1 defeat will linger long in the memory.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang thought he had provided the heroics having equalised in the second period of extra-time after Pape Abou Cisse's header had taken the tie into the additional 30 minutes.But, after Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno fluffed his lines and cost his side a corner, Olympiacos recycled possession and El Arabi was on hand to steer Giorgos Masouras' cross past the Germany international.Mikel Arteta's men had won their last three games and shown signs they were progressing following his December appointment but they were not at the races here as last season's beaten finalists nearly exited early on.It took Arsenal a while to find their rhythm but when they did the Olympiacos defence panicked, Ousseynou Ba booked for tripping Nicolas Pepe on the edge of the box after the winger had been slipped in by Alexandre Lacazette.Club-record signing Pepe dusted himself off to take the resulting free-kick but it was too high to trouble Jose Sa in the visitors' goal.There would be no continued pressure from Arsenal and it was Olympiacos who missed the next decent chance as Mohamed Camara could only fire wide after charging into the box.Arsenal thought they were ahead soon after as Bukayo Saka crossed for Lacazette to turn home but – unlike the goal from the same combination in Greece a week earlier – this one was ruled out for offside against the full-back.After a first half with hardly any chances, it was Olympiacos who would stun north London as they look the lead.Mathieu Valbuena put a corner into the middle of the Arsenal box and picked out a completely unmarked Cisse, who guided his header past Leno.Instead of igniting a response from Arteta's side, Olympiacos took confidence from their goal and Leno had to push a Kostas Tsimikas effort behind moments later as Arsenal rocked.Granit Xhaka dragged an effort wide just before the hour-mark but the Gunners failed to force a shot on target until the 77th minute, Pepe drawing a smart stop out of Sa, with Lacazette then spurning a fine headed chance as the rebound was worked into him.With the Olympiacos defence retreating towards their own goal, substitute Lucas Torreira was next to test Sa with a low effort from the edge of the box.A fine Tsimikas challenge prevented Mesut Ozil getting a shot away as the game went into extra-time, with Shkodran Mustafi limping off injured at the start of the additional 30 minutes to be replaced by Sokratis Papastathopoulos.But it was Olympiacos substitute Masouras who would clip the top of Leno's crossbar as the second half of extra-time got under way. WHAT DRAMA! 🤯 El Arabi = Olympiacos hero ⚽️UELpic.twitter.com/YLGtK1qOvs \- UEFA Europa League (@EuropaLeague) February 27, 2020Arsenal were still largely second-best but it would be their talisman, the man who has sparked so much debate in the last week, who looked to have salvaged their European hopes.Ozil crossed into the middle where Gabriel Martinelli contested a header and the loose ball dropped out of the sky for Aubameyang to finish with an acrobatic bicycle kick.But, despite just six minutes remaining, it would not be the end of the drama as El Arabi swept home in the final moments to send the away fans into raptures and close a door on the chance of silverware and a path to the Champions League for Arteta and Arsenal.
