Player rankings for Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal: Ayew 7, Johnstone 3, Rice 8, Havertz 5.

Following Takehiro Tomiyasu’s dismissal for two yellow cards in their Premier League match at Selhurst Park on Monday, Crystal Palace finished the game with 10 men. Martin Odegaard, the captain of Arsenal, converted a penalty to give Arsenal a 1-0 victory.

The greatest opportunity of the first half hour belonged to Eddie Nketiah of Arsenal, who struck the post in the 29th minute after some strong midfield pushing led to the Gunners winning the ball high up the field.

In the 36th minute, after Declan Rice had played Nketiah in behind the defense, he fluffed a chip attempt that harmlessly crossed the crossbar.

Early in the second half, when the striker raced on to a fast free kick by Gabriel Martinelli, he was brought down in the box by goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

Odegaard sent Johnstone the wrong way by sliding the ball in at the base of the keeper’s right-hand post after referee David Coote signaled to the spot.

Arsenal appeared to be cruising to win, but Tomiyasu was sent off in the 67th minute after picking up two bookings for a tackle on Jordan Ayew and time-wasting at a throw-in on the hour mark.

The only time the home team came close to scoring an equalizer was a stoppage-time snap effort by fullback Tyrick Mitchell that sailed wide. Arteta promptly made a number of defensive alterations that caused problems for Palace.

With the victory, Arsenal moved up to third place, six points behind Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion on goal differential. From their first two games, Palace has three points.

President of World Athletics Coe is re-elected.

Sebastian Coe, president of World Athletics since 2015, was on Thursday re-elected as head of track and field’s governing body on a third and final four-year mandate.

The 66-year-old, a two-time Olympic 1500m champion for Britain in 1980 and 1984, stood unopposed in the vote of the World Athletics Congress in Budapest, two days ahead of the start of the world championships in the Hungarian capital.

According to World Athletics rules, Coe will be unable to stand for a fourth mandate.

In the wake of the Lamine Diack corruption scandal, Coe, a former Conservative politician who oversaw the local organizing committee for the 2012 London Olympics, became leadership of the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF).

The Athletics Integrity Unit, an independent organization in charge of anti-doping, was established in 2017 under Coe’s first two terms in office. Additionally, World Athletics’ position on Russia was strengthened when it was initially suspended due to institutional doping and then again in 2022 due to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

“During the first four years of my term, I focused on preventing the ship from capsize. We were in a dire situation, according to Coe.

He continued that the following four years would be spent addressing concerns like Russia, defending the female category, and promoting one-day events.

“The next four years will be focused on what is the product that will future-proof the sport for the next 30 years,” he added, adding that competition decisions would be made using data rather than presidential whim.
