Arsenal have been forced to postpone their match against Manchester City slated to take place later tonight. This is after receiving word of Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis’ ailment from Covid-19. Marinakis was present when Arsenal played Olympiakos 13 days ago and interacted with players and staff. After consulting with their medical team, Arsenal have decided that those discovered to be in contact with the billionaire place themselves under self-isolation. Arsenal have however also termed this as a purely precautionary measure. This decision was however reached upon after the premier league, Arsenal and Manchester City hierarchy decided that the match should be postponed in line with the UK government guidelines.
When has the match been postponed to?
Considering the match had just been moved forward, it remains unclear when the match will be played next. City and Arsenal have however confirmed that bought tickets will be valid for the next game. The Premier League is reluctant to postpone any other game. However, with a busy schedule ahead, matches will have to be moved around to accommodate Arsenal and Chelsea. Although this match has been postponed, Arsenal’s match against Brighton remains as planned. This is considering Arsenal played Olympiakos 13 days ago and if by Friday the players show no signs of symptoms, they will be cleared to play.
Arsenal sit 9th on the table after a run of draws. They however are 3 points off a champions league after being previously written off. A run largely credited to new recruit – Mikel Arteta. The young coach has managed to pull off a string impressive results with a previously lackluster squad looking rejuvenated under him. So much so that the Gunners would sit an impressive 5th with a game in hand if the league started when he joned Arsenal. A win against City by 3 goals or more would see them go 6th.
Reasons why you should not get back together with an ex
Getting back together with an ex can be tempting even when you know it might not be the best move. Therefore, you should really evaluate before you make the decision to get back together. There’s a reason why you two broke up in the first place, right?
For starters, many people find themselves in a toxic relationship which can take a toll on someone’s mental, emotional and even physical well-being.Here are other reasons why you should not get back together:
Fights and arguments all the time
Healthy relationships don’t lack arguments from time to time. However, if you guys were always fighting or arguing, then it’s time to evaluate whether you really need to rekindle that relationship. There’s no reason why you should be so unhappy in life all the time. Find the courage to walk away with the belief that there’s someone better for you out there, because there is and don’t get back together with an ex.
Adopting bad qualities
If they influenced you to engage in harmful activities that you were avoiding before, then that’s a red flag. It could be drinking, smoking, being lazy all the time, cheating or even stealing. If your positive qualities have reduced and negative ones increased because of being in that relationship, then that’s not progressive development. A good relationship makes people become better versions of themselves.
If you got to the point where you needed to ask for permission to meet friends and relatives or do simple things, then you were in a toxic relationship. Controlling partners act like they are in charge of your life and make all life decisions for you. Controlling partners are insecure and selfish most of the time. They use threats to force you to do what they want. Don’t get back together with your ex if that was the case.
It’s really sad to be in a relationship where there’s no trust between the partners. Trust is a strong foundation of healthy relationships. You have to trust that your partner will be there through thick and thin, they’ll be faithful and many other things. If you completely did not trust your partner and they didn’t trust you, then will you really ever be at peace? Do you want to live that way forever? It will become exhausting and draining after a while.

Although Governor Kibwana’s intentions are out in the open, it is unclear whether he is breaking away from his wiper party or not. It is however clear that Kibwana has impressed a lot of people on social media, whether this translates to votes for the soft spoken leader, only time will tell. But by making his presidential aspirations known, he has shown he believes that he can beat presidential favorites – Raila and Ruto.
