Jose Mourinho will tonight be desperate for his Tottenham side to provide a swift response to their latest collapse when they travel to Everton. After being held to a frustrating draw by Newcastle following the international break, Spurs led Manchester United 1-0 during last weekend’s eventful Premier League fixture in north London, only for an eventual 3-1 defeat to leave them scrambling badly in the crowded race for a top-four finish. Indeed, the manager later admitted that even finishing in the top six would now be a difficult task for a Tottenham side that seem bereft of confidence and hampered by repeated defensive errors.

Grab Holdings, Southeast Asia's ride-hailing to delivery giant, is considering a secondary listing in its home market of Singapore after completing a Nasdaq listing via a $40 billion SPAC merger, three sources familiar with the matter said. Listing on Singapore Exchange would enable Grab to have an investor base close to where its regional business is based, the people said, potentially offering its customers, drivers and merchant partners easier access to trade its shares.
Chinese carrier drills and stepped-up incursions into Taiwan's air defence zone in recent weeks are meant to send a message to Washington to stand down and back off, security sources in Taipei say. The increased activity - which China, unusually, described as "combat drills" on Wednesday - has raised alarm in both Taipei and Washington, though security officials do not see it as a sign of an imminent attack. Rather, according to an official familiar with Taiwan's security planning, at least some of the exercises are practicing "access denial" manoeuvres to prevent foreign forces from coming to Taipei's defence in a war.
China's economic recovery picked up in the first quarter from last year's deep coronavirus slump, propelled by stronger demand at home and abroad and continued government support for smaller firms. But the brisk expansion, heavily skewed by the plunge in activity a year earlier, is expected to moderate later this year as the government turns its attention to reining in financial risks in overheating parts of the economy. Gross domestic product (GDP) jumped 18.3pc in the first quarter from a year earlier, official data showed on Friday. While that undershot the 19pc forecast by economists in a Reuters poll, it was the fastest growth since quarterly records began in 1992 and up from 6.5pc in the fourth quarter last year. Aided by strict virus containment measures and emergency relief for businesses, the economy has recovered from a steep 6.8pc slump in the first three months of 2020, when an outbreak of Covid-19 in the central city of Wuhan rapidly became a crippling pandemic that has killed about three million worldwide. China's rebound has been led by exports as factories raced to fill overseas orders and more recently a steady pickup in consumption as shoppers returned to restaurants, shopping centres and car dealerships. Retail sales increased 34.2pc year-on-year in March, beating a 28pc gain expected by analysts and stronger than the 33.8pc jump seen in the first two months of the year. Other data, however, showed a moderation in expansion with quarter-on-quarter growth slowing to 0.6pc in January-March from a revised 3.2pc in the previous quarter, missing expectations for a 1.5pc increase. Factory output grew 14.1pc year-on-year in March, slowing from a 35.1pc surge in the January-February period and lagging a forecast 17.2pc rise. National Bureau of Statistics spokeswoman Liu Aihua told a news conference on Friday while the economy started 2021 on a firm footing, the services sector and smaller firms still faced challenges, and consumer inflation was likely to remain moderate. Data last week showed consumer prices rising at only a modest pace in March, even as factory gate inflation hit a near three-year high. "Looking forward, the trend of normalisation may continue for the rest of the year, and domestic consumption is expected to be the major growth driver," said Chaoping Zhu, global market strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management in Shanghai. "In terms of policy response, the central bank and fiscal authorities are returning to a more neutral stance, although some selective measures might be continued in order to support the small and medium-sized enterprises." Li Wei, economist at Standard Chartered in Shanghai, expected second-quarter growth to slow to 7pc. The world's second-largest economy is tipped to grow 8.6pc in 2021, according to a Reuters poll, which would easily beat the government's 2021 annual growth target of above 6pc. China's GDP grew just 2.3pc last year, its weakest expansion in 44 years. It was still the only major economy to avoid contraction as other industrial powers struggled with the pandemic.
Over the past few weeks, Rihanna has convinced everyone they need a leather blazer, sheer trousers, and a fringe. Now it’s time to add high-heeled flip-flops to the list. Rihanna recently stepped out, in Los Angeles, wearing a comfy tracksuit with a bowling bag, trucker hat, and a pair of strappy periwinkle flip-flops. Look close, and you’ll see that these are no ordinary flip-flops, these have a stiletto. It’s comfort in the front, fashion in the back. Not to mention a throwback to the late ’90s/early ’00s. RiRi isn’t the only one jumping on the heeled flip-flops trend for spring. The thong sandals that were once deemed controversial — and even crowned the “most hated sandal trend” — are having a moment. Fancy flip-flops were all over the spring ’21 runway popping up in shows from Stella McCartney, Acne Studios, and Tom Ford. These designers gave the humble flip-flop a much-needed makeover that played with proportions and added details that turned them into a trendy staple. (Again.) Now with Rihanna’s latest endorsement, it’s clear, heeled flip-flops are sticking around — just in time to show off that at-home pedicure. Like what you see?
