Unai Emery takes positives from Arsenal's second-half display
I think in the majority of games he'll go with 4-2-3-1 but against the top sides like City he may opt for an extra body in the middle of the park and go 4-3-3.

Trump pushed Harley-Davidson to keep its production "100% in America", but also criticized the company and warned it would take a "big hit" for the move and cited his base's support for the company.

After Trump announced steep tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum earlier this year, the European Union's decision to implement retaliatory tariffs on motorcycles prompted the company to move some of its production overseas. A really bad move! Great! Most other companies are coming in our direction, including Harley competitors. "USA will soon have a level playing field, or better".

Trump sent the tweet from his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., where he hosted members of "Bikers for Trump" on Saturday afternoon.

Motorcycle companies based outside the United States include Japan's Honda and Yamaha, Europe's BMW and Ducati as well as India's Hero and Bajaj Auto, among others.

According to Fortune, Harley-Davidson CEO Matt Levatich described the president's recent attacks on the company as "unfortunate attention", stressing that Harley-Davidson will remain "apolitical".
