TUESDAY FEBRUARY 5 2019 SPORT 27 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Ham United today. Arsenal dropped to sixth after Manchester Uniteds 1-0 win at Leicester City in yesterdays other game, which moved the Red Devils up to fifth. Having scored after 24 seconds in Tuesdays 2-1 loss at Newcastle United, Aguero had to wait a little bit longer against Arsenal. But only 48 seconds more as he put City in front. Just like at Newcastle, City threw away the lead when Laurent Koscielny equalised. This time the lead was restored as Raheem Sterling set up Aguero before the duo AS HAT-TRICKS go, Sergio Agueros 14th for Manchester City was strangely perfect. It involved three different methods of scoring against Arsenal: a header, a right-footed tap-in and, finally, a nudge with the left arm. I honestly thought it was my chest, Aguero said after Citys 3-1 Premier League victory yesterday. But now I have seen it on the TV, it was handball. The win moved City back to second over Tottenham Hostpur and within two points of Liverpool, who play at West WHAT A HANDY TRICK combined again for the Argentines 10th hat-trick in the Premier League alone one behind Alan Shearers record. In the first season, people said I didnt like him but al ways I was delighted... Pep Guardiola, who took charge of City in 2016, said of Aguero. Today (Aguero) fought and did everything for the team. I judge the intention. The intention from Sergio was always perfect since weve been together. United have been resurgent under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, recording a seventh win in eight Premier League games. When Jose Mourinho was fired in December, United trailed fourth-placed Chelsea by 11 points. Now they are only two points behind the Blues and a Champions League place. After struggling under Mourinho, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba have scored 12 goals between them since the Portugueses exit. They combined for the only goal at Leicester, with Rashford slamming home in the ninth minute of his 100th appearance for United. Our attitude was spot on, Solskjaer, a six-time Premier League title winner at United as a player, said. They know they can do better ... but a clean sheet is always a foundation to build on. Now I have seen it on the TV, it was handball S E R G I O A G U E R O Sala plane wreckage found in Channel WRECKAGE from the plane carrying the missing Cardiff City footballer Emiliano Sala has been found. Marine scientist David Mearns, who directed a privately funded search operation north of Guernsey on behalf of the Sala family, said the wreckage of the plane was located (yesterday). The Piper Malibu N264DB carrying 28-year-old Argentine Sala and pilot David Ibbotson, 59, disappeared over the English Channel on January 21 after leaving Nantes in France for Cardiff. Two vessels, including one commissioned by the AAIB, using sonar had been taking part in a fresh search covering an area of around four square nautical miles. Mr Mearns, the director of Blue Water Recoveries, led a team on the search vessel FPV Morven while the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) also sent a team aboard the Geo Ocean III. Wreckage of the plane carrying Emiliano Sala and piloted by David Ibbotson was located early this morning by the FPV MORVEN. As agreed with the AAIB, they moved the GEO OCEAN III over the position we provided them to visually identify the plane by ROV, Mr Mearns tweeted. The families of Emiliano Sala and David Ibbotson have been notified by Police. The AAIB will be making a statement tomorrow. Tonight our sole thoughts are with the families and friends of Emiliano and David. The privately funded operation on behalf of the Sala family was made possible after a campaign raised more than $470,000 to fund it. This is about the best result we could have hoped for the families, Mearns said. But tonight they have heard devastating news and in respect of the families I wont comment any further about what has happened. Cardiff had signed the footballer for a club record 15 million ($27 million) and he was due to start training last month. The club paid tribute to Sala since, and won an emotionally charged Premier League clash with Bournemouth 2-0 on Saturday the first game at home since the incident. Arsenal had no answer to Manchester Citys Sergio Aguero, who scored all three of his teams goals in their win Picture: AP Larkham sacked by Cheika STEPHEN Larkham has been axed as Wallabies assistant coach by Michael Cheika, eight months out from the Rugby World Cup. The World Cup-winning Wallabies five-eighth says he and coach Cheika could not agree on key attacking strategy and game philosophy. The axing follows the Wallabies dismal year in which they slipped to a record-low seventh in the world rankings. Rugby Australia said the decision was Cheikas and Larkham would shift to a new role as national high performance coach adviser immediately. The Wallabies endured their worst season in 60 years in 2018 with a 4-9 win-loss record. It sparked a review by RA, who subsequently signed Scott Johnson in the new position of director of rugby in a bid to breathe new life into the Wallabies World Cup campaign. Razzle hammered by in-form Hill A MONSTER 47-point haul by import Austin Hill, including 10 three-pointers, carried Ansett to an upset 95-85 win over top team Razzle in Darwin mens league basketball. Hill was given solid support from fellow import Rob Skinner, who chipped in with an effective 21 points. Departing Razzle forward Jerron Jamerson was the Razzles standout with another powerhouse effort, hitting 43 points. Amazingly Jamerson got 17 of his points from the free throw line. Razzles loss cost them outright leadership after Essington grabbed equal top by defeating the Anthony Golden-led Eagles in a tight 91-85 win. Golden hit 35 points in his teams loss. Essington welcomed back junior Lachlan Shipway, who has returned from college in the US, and he showed the benefits of his time away with a valuable 20 points which also included five three-pointers. Livewire guard Tito Kwajakwan top-scored for Essington with 24 points. In the other mens league games, Tracy Village pushed Palmerston all the way before Will Shackleford and Ben Streeter carried Palmerston clear 81-72, while Rebels downed Lightning 115-70. In the womens league, ladder leader Tracy Village had too much depth for thirdplaced Ansett, winning 64-52. Lightning has held on to second place on the premiership table with a narrow 68-64 win against Rebels and Razzle was unrelenting in their 74-19 win against an undermanned Eagles.
