US Open champion Osaka withdraws from French Open with injury

Naomi Osaka, who captured her third Grand Slam title at the US Open on September 12, pulled out of the upcoming French Open with a hamstring injury on Thursday. "Unfortunately I won't be able to play the French Open this year," Osaka said in posts on Instagram and Twitter. "My hamstring is still sore so I won't have enough time to prepare for the clay - these two tournaments came too close to each other for me this year." The French Open is due to start on 27 September at Roland Garros, rescheduled from earlier in the year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

‘Tottenham should sell Kane while he’s at his peak’ – Spurs urged to cash in on prized asset

Jamie O'Hara does not think the club should stand in the way of their star striker if he wishes to leave this summer Tottenham would be wise to cash in on Harry Kane, according to Jamie O'Hara, who believes the striker is "at his peak now in terms of his market value.” Kane was enjoying another superb individual season at Spurs before his progress was halted by a hamstring injury, netting 17 goals in 25 appearances across all competitions. Unfortunately, the England centre-forward was ruled out of action for four months after undergoing surgery to repair a ruptured tendon, leaving head coach Jose Mourinho with few alternative options up front.

Arteta Reveals Best Arsenal Player in 4-0 win Over Newcastle

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has named Dani Ceballos as the best player on the pitch in their 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle on Sunday. Ceballos was a surprise inclusion in Arsenal starting line-up for the game. The last time he started a game for the Gunners was in early November, the 1-1 draw with Vitoria in the Europa League. The Spaniard picked up a hamstring injury, which sidelined him for almost two months. “He was injured and when he started to train I didn’t think he was fit enough,” Arteta told the BBC. “He completely changed his behaviour and trained like an animal. I thought he was the best player on the pitch. “Dani was ideal for this game in that game position today. The way he’s been training he completely deserves a chance. “I’m so glad with his perfor...

Iwobi Suffers Injury In His First Game Against Former Club, Arsenal

Alex Iwobi's first appearance against Arsenal since leaving the club lasted only 10 minutes before he had to be taken off due to an apparent hamstring injury. Recall that the Super Eagles star joined Everton under Marco Silva this campaign for a club record fee. After ten minutes into the game against his former club, Iwobi was pictured holding his hamstring and was later forced off. He was replaced by Tosun, who goes up front alongside Calvert-Lewin, meaning Richarlison goes out wide. But later in the game, Iwobi's early replacement Cenk Tosun was substituted by Ferguson for Moise Kean, who suffered the same fate last weekend when he was hauled off at Old Trafford after playing just 19 minutes. The game ended in a goalless draw in the early kick off.

Blow for Arsenal as injury rules Ceballos out of Leicester clash

Arsenal have been dealt a blow ahead of Saturday's crunch meeting with Leicester City after midfielder Dani Ceballos was ruled out with a hamstring injury. The Spain international limped off during the second half of Wednesday's draw with Vitoria in the Europa League. And the Gunners have now confirmed that, while the full extent of his injury is not yet known, the Real Madrid loanee will not be part of the squad for the trip to the King Power Stadium. Ceballos has become a fan favourite at the Emirates Stadium since his arrival on a season-long deal from Santiago Bernabeu over the summer despite his 17 appearances for the club only yielding one goal and two assists thus far. Reports suggest Madrid are keen to keep hold of him when his loan deal expires given some of his more i...

Vincent Kompany’s testimonial end in a 2-2 draw

Over 51,000 fans turned up at the Etihad to watch Kompany's testimonial end in a 2-2 draw, but the Belgium defender was ruled out with a hamstring injury. The Belgian defender poked fun at himself in his press conference ahead of kick-off. "You might have noticed, I'm not playing - I just had to be injured for my own testimonial," he said. Martin Petrov opened the scoring for City in the opening minute after a comical mix-up between Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville. The All-Stars hit back thanks to goals from Robbie Keane and Robin van Persie. Benjani scored in the dying stages to make it 2-2 on an entertaining evening at the Etihad. "I'm the proudest man in the world," said Kompany. "It's been a special day. It's been a perfect evening even though I didn't play. I couldn...

Hazard suffers injury blow to delay Real Madrid debut

Eden Hazard has picked up an untimely hamstring injury, with the Belgian set to see his competitive debut for Real Madrid delayed. The Blancos are set to open their 2019-20 La Liga campaign away at Celta Vigo on Saturday. Hazard, fresh from a €100 million (£88m/$112m) transfer to Santiago Bernabeu from Chelsea, would have been hoping to figure prominently in that fixture. He is, however, set to be restricted to a spectator role after suffering an unfortunate knock. Real have confirmed that the 28-year-old is facing up to a spell on the sidelines. A statement on the club’s official website read: “After the tests carried out after training today by the Real Madrid Medical Services, our player Eden Hazard has been diagnosed with a lesion in the anterior rectus of the left thigh...

AFCON: Abdullahi May Miss Rest Of Nigeria Campaign With Hamstring Injury

Shehu Abdullahi could miss the remainder of Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations outing with a hamstring injury. The Bursaspor defender was stretchered out in the first half, and was replaced by Chidozie Awaziem in the Super Eagles 1-0 triumph over Burundi. Although Nigeria medics did not place a time frame on his full recovery, media officer Toyin Ibitoye told Goal that the right-back would be sidelined for Wednesday’s showdown with Guinea in Alexandria. “Shehu is fine but may need just a few days to be back to 100%.” While Rohr remained vague as to the extent of the injury, Goal understands the problem is not a severe one, but Nigeria will not risk exacerbating the injury with other options available for selection. Therefore, the Super Eagles No.12 may not feature agai...
