NHS criticised for junk food

first_imgThe NHS has been criticised for fuelling obesity levels after an investigation revealed hospitals house dozens of fast food restaurants and coffee shops.The investigation found 92 branches of Costa Coffee existed among the 160 NHS Trust sites, along with other chains such as Subway and Greggs.A leading cardiologist said that allowing such companies to operate from NHS premises was damaging the health of staff, patients and visitors.Simon Stevens, head of NHS England, urged that they would take ‘hard-nosed action’ to end the sale of junk food in hospitals and help reduce obesity levels.Costa Coffee has recently come under fire from the media for selling drinks that contain four times the recommended sugar limits. The brand is the most abundant in NHS premises by far, totalling 92 branches, the next common being WH Smith, with 32 sites.Dr Aseem Malhotra, a cardiologist and science director of Action on Sugar, told The Telegraph: “What is going on is really obscene. The NHS needs to get its house in order, because this sends out entirely the wrong message. Hospitals should be a place of healing, but instead they are selling sickness.”A spokesman for Costa Coffee said: “In order for customers to make an informed choice about what they eat and drink, Costa always labels packaged products clearly and all nutritional information on these and on other products are readily available for the customer either online or in-store.”last_img read more

The stats that highlight just how poor Manchester United vs Arsenal really was

first_img Comment Andreas Pereira was particularly sloppy in his passing (Via Whoscored )Across the campaign they rank seventh for successful passes, below their traditional top-six rivals, as well as, wait for it, 17th placed Norwich City on an underwhelming 82.1%.They performed fractionally below par against Arsenal, completing 80% of their passes, while Arsenal’s 83.8 per cent average was well down to 77%.Of United’s 439 attempted passes just 353 were successful, while Arsenal succeeded with 273 of their 350. Pretty passing was certainly not on show at Old Trafford.Cancelling each other outHistorically, this has been a fixture with plenty of goals with an average of 2.4 per game across 54 encounters in the Premier League prior to Monday’s match-up.While a return of an only slightly below average two goals doesn’t give away too much, there was very little chance of that tally being added to such was the paucity of premium chances.27 – There have been no shots in the opening 27 minutes of #MUNARS, the longest wait for a first attempt in a single @premierleague game this season.

Battles between the two clubs in the late 1990s and early 2000s defined English football at the time.That has all changed now, though. Whereas United and Arsenal were once in direct competition for the title, they are now scrapping it out just to try and gatecrash the top-four.Much has been made of the declining fortunes of both clubs in recent seasons, but Monday night’s drab 1-1 draw at Old Trafford emphasised how far the mighty really have fallen.Aside from an excellent strike from Scott McTominay for the game’s opening goal and a typically cute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finish, it was an encounter remarkably low on quality.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTThis isn’t one you can expect to see replayed by Sky Sports in years to come.Anyone with a functioning pair of eyes would have been able to report that this was no vintage United vs Arsenal fixture but the statistics really do hammer home that point…Sloppy passingIt will come as a surprise to literally nobody that Pep Guardiola’s playmaker-packed Manchester City side are well out in front when it comes to pass accuracy statistics this season.The reigning champions have completed 89.3% of their passes from their opening seven Premier League games of the season with ten members of their squad averaging over 90%.Regularly finding someone wearing the same colour shirt as yours with an attempted pass is a pretty useful skill but it is one that United’s players seem to have struggled with this season. The stats that highlight just how poor Manchester United vs Arsenal really was Advertisementcenter_img Marcus Rashford has scored just once from open play in ten matches for club and country (Picture: Getty)Since the 4-0 drubbing of Chelsea on the opening day, United have failed to score more than once in a game in all eight of their games and a look at their attacking players’ record over the past few months emphasises their issues going forward.Rashford has scored just twice from open play in his previous 20 matches for club and country. Jesse Lingard has managed one goal in 2019 against Arsenal in January, 21 appearances ago. Andreas Pereira, deployed on the right-wing against Arsenal, has two goals to show from 42 appearances for United.Daniel James – the other starter in United’s front four – has enjoyed a promising start with three goals so far, but even he has tailed off recently, failing to score in his last four matches.Nicolas Pepe’s struggles continueIt is far, far too early to write Arsenal’s club-record signing off at this stage, considering his number of appearances for the club is yet to reach double figures.AdvertisementPatience with Pepe is required and it is worth remembering that it took Thierry Henry until his ninth match for the Gunners to get off the mark. Pepe has already bettered that record with one goal from his opening eight games, albeit from the penalty spot.Nevertheless, it is in these games that Pepe has been signed for. Arsenal’s record against the best of the rest is generally excellent but they have struggled against top-six rivals recently, particularly away from home. Indeed, in a game that both sides would have fancied winning beforehand, they appeared to set up in a ‘must not lose’ manner instead, evidenced by a hesitant opening half an hour.It took until the 29th minute for a shot on goal to officially be registered as Andreas Pereira’s low effort from distance was well fielded by Bernd Leno.Both of these teams were there for the taking but neither seemed to want to take the initiative.United’s firepower lacking a sparkOf the 20 top-scoring players in the Premier League, seven of them have, at one stage in their careers played for Manchester United (yes Michael Owen didn’t exactly set the world alight at Old Trafford but they all count).AdvertisementAdvertisementThroughout the past three decades, United have always relied upon, at the very least, one consistent goalscorer to put the ball in the back of the net of their opponents. Wayne Rooney, Andy Cole, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Eric Cantona etc etc. The list goes on and on.At the moment, though, it is very difficult to see where United’s goals are going to come from. Last season their top-scorer was a central midfielder, Paul Pogba with 13. Marcus Rashford was the most prolific forward still at the club with only ten league goals. Nicolas Pepe lost possession 17 times in total (Picture: Getty)Trying to correct that form is why Arsenal spent so much on Pepe but he struggled to get into his groove under the lights at Old Trafford. According to various sources, Pepe lost possession – through inaccurate passes and crosses as well as unsuccessful dribbles – 17 times overall.Problematically for Pepe, his work was very much overshadowed by 18-year-old newcomer Bukayo Saka on the opposite flank and it was rather telling that it was he who was withdrawn first rather than the England U19 international.Pepe could well go on to become the star that everyone anticipated he would be when Arsenal parted with £72m to sign him in August but it is slightly concerning that his form has dipped since that promising first start against Liverpool.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityThey have the same combined points as LiverpoolIt seems slightly unfair to compare either of these sides to the European champions given just how far ahead Jurgen Klopp’s side are at present, but really it shouldn’t be. Manchester United have outspent Liverpool in recent years while Arsenal are not too far behind them.AdvertisementThe current league leaders required a big helping hand from Dean Henderson on Saturday but a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Brammall Lane on Saturday extended Liverpool’s winning run to 16 games in the Premier League, seven of which have come this season.Those seven wins are more than United (two) and Arsenal (three) have managed between them. A demonstration of just how far Liverpool are ahead of these two teams at present is that their points tally is equal to United’s and Arsenal’s combined.The gap is big and it is widening.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errors Advertisementlast_img read more
