first_img 11 Theo Walcott – 5 – His pace should have caused Chelsea problems. Instead his game was littered with heavy touches and was barely seen. 11 Gabriel – 3 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – Foolishly walked into Diego Costa’s trap and got sent off before half-time. 11 Santi Cazorla – 5 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – Two bookings saw the diminutive Spaniard sent off with 11 minutes to go. Alexis Sanchez – 5 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – Nowhere near his best again. Fluffed chances and seems off the pace, as he did in the Champions League on Wednesday. 11 11 Arsenal’s week went from bad to worse on Saturday as they were beaten 2-0 by London rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.The Gunners had Gabriel and Santi Cazorla sent off in a fiery clash but even with all 11 on the field looked ponderous and wasteful.Defeat leaves Arsene Wenger’s men just three points ahead of the Blues, who have been struggling this season.So how did the Frenchman’s starting XI do against Chelsea? talkSPORT takes a look. Nacho Monreal – 4 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – The Spain star was poor at Stamford Bridge. 11 Francis Coquelin – 6 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – Lasted just 45 minutes after an injury curtailed his afternoon. Had looked decent. 11 11 Petr Cech – 6 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – Some good saves but possibly could have done better with Kurt Zouma’s header. 11 Aaron Ramsey – 4 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – Another poor showing from the Welshman who, in truth, offered barely anything. Laurent Koscielny – 5 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – Handled Diego Costa OK, and did well to keep his cool in tough circumstances. Hector Bellerin – 5 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – His attacking forays were limited, especially after Gabriel’s red card – did OK defensively. 11 11 Mesut Ozil – 6 – Click the right arrow for more ratings – Showed he does possess a good work ethic as he tracked back well, couldn’t do much in the attacking third, though. last_img read more

He was six years older than the victim.He was convicted by a jury however of 31 of the charges by a majority 10-2 verdict of the jury after three hours and 36 minutes of deliberation but was acquitted of four of the counts by unanimous decision. The abuser cannot be named to protect the identity of his victim.Mr Justice Paul Carney ordered the man to be put on the sex offenders’ register and remanded him in custody until June 24 next for sentencing.He thanked the jury of five women and seven men before excusing them from further service for life.The now 57-year-old victim earlier told Caroline Biggs SC, prosecuting, that he remembered that it was the accused that taught him the facts of life.He said the then teenager forced him to perform certain acts and told the court there was always the threat of violence if he did not comply.He said a similar pattern of activity continued over a number of years.The victim said his abuser would lie in between himself and his brother in bed. He said that the teenager had a domineering personality and was taller than him.He described him as being “top dog”, “higher up in the pecking order” and would give him a punch here, a shove there and twist his arm behind his back.“I didn’t have the capacity to fight back,” the victim told the court.He was asked if he had consented to the incidents.“I thought it was blindingly obvious that I didn’t consent to the activity. I never consented from the age of seven to 15 or 16 years old, to either the physical or sexual abuse visited upon me by this man, never,” said the victim.PERVERT PREYED ON NEPHEW OF WOMAN WHO FOSTERED HIM was last modified: May 12th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:PREVERT PREYED ON NEPHEW OF WOMAN WHO FOSTERED HIMlast_img read more
