Harry Maguire scores as Manchester United win at Chelsea – but Red Devils captain avoids red card for kick on Michy Batshuayi

Harry Maguire scores as Manchester United win at Chelsea – but Red Devils captain avoids red card for kick on Michy Batshuayi

Sports
Manchester United breathed new life in their quest for Champions League football with a very useful 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Headers from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire secured the win, although the Red Devils captain arguably shouldn’t have been on the pitch to score his goal. AFP or licensors Maguire’s powerful header helped seal the win but should he have been on the pitch to score it? Maguire was fortunate to escape being sent off in the first half for kicking out at Chelsea frontman Michy Batshuyai. Meanwhile, Chelsea had two goals in the second half disallowed following VAR checks on a night where the hosts will feel very aggrieved. The result sees Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men go just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea a...

BUSHEKELI, Rwanda -- It was something, the silence. Nothing but the puff of her breath and the scuff of her slip-on shoes as Madeleine Mukantagara walked through the fields to her first patient of the day.

Health
Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A pacemaker protype the size of an almond designed to make procedures for infants less invasive, less painful and more efficient has been tested on pigs. Dr. Rohan Kumthekar, a cardiology fellow at the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., will show off the device and present his abstract Sunday at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2018 in Chicago. Kumthekar believes the process will lead to shorter surgeries, faster recovery times and reduced medical costs. "Placing a pacemaker in a small child is different than operating on an adult, due to their small chest cavity and narrow blood vessels," Kumthekar said in a press release. "By eliminating the need to cut through the sternu...
