PALERMO, Italy - Giorgio Chiellini scored twice for Italy and netted an own goal for Azerbaijan in a 2-1 win in European Championship qualifying Friday as the Azzurri remained perfect under new coach Antonio Conte. Cheap Joel Embiid Jersey .Azerbaijan defended with 10 men and Italy had trouble creating opportunities until Chiellini took advantage of an error by the goalkeeper to give the Azzurri the lead in the 44th minute.Chiellini then scored into his own net in the 76th as he attempted to defend a corner kick but he made up for his error by heading in again in the 82nd.In good and bad I did it all, said Chiellini, the victim of Luis Suarezs bite at the World Cup. But the important thing is we came out on top.Croatia, which won 1-0 at Bulgaria, shares the Group H lead with Italy with six points each.Bulgaria and Norway, which won 3-0 at Malta, are next with three points each while Azerbaijan and Malta trail with zero.The top two finishers from the nine groups qualify automatically. The best third-placed team also qualifies automatically, and the other eight can qualify through a playoff.In Bulgaria, Nikolay Bodurov scored an own goal for Croatia in the 36th.Norway got two goals from Blackburn forward Joshua King, who also set up the opening score from Mats Moller Daehli.Italy beat Norway in its opening qualifier and was also a winner over the Netherlands in a friendly to open Contes tenure.The former Juventus manager has still not called up Mario Balotelli, and while Ciro Immobile and Simone Zaza performed well in the opening two matches, they struggled for stretches this time.I have little to criticize the lads about, Conte said. Azerbaijan came here not to play but to hope for some fortunate dead ball opportunities.At Palermos Renzo Barbera stadium, Italy was in control from the start but appeared paralyzed by the constant defensive pressure surrounding midfield maestro Andrea Pirlo, who made his return to the national team for the first time since the World Cup.At one point, Conte ordered Pirlo to exchange positions with centre back Andrea Ranocchia to shed the choking coverage.But Pirlo still appeared frustrated, as evidenced when he drew a yellow card for a sliding tackle on Rauf Aliyev in the 33rd.Italys best chances early on were on set pieces, such as when Pirlo set up a header for Ranocchia that sailed high in the 37th.Azerbaijan didnt produce a single shot until the 40th when Rufat Dadasov launched an attempt from 40 metres (yards) that flew about 10 metres (yards) over the target.Four minutes later, Kamran Agayev ventured out of his goal and attempted to punch away a corner kick but Chiellini — risking a fist to the face — beat him to the ball and headed in to the empty net.Zaza nearly scored a spectacular goal in the 47th. Attempting a bicycle kick with his back to the goal his effort went just wide.Azerbaijan hardly threatened until a corner kick in the 76th. While attempting to defend Rauf Aliyev near the far post, Chiellini instead redirected the ball into his own net. The ball touched goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon last although it appeared to have already crossed the line at that point.Substitute Sebastian Giovinco set up the winner with a cross from the right that Chiellini headed inside the near post from the edge of the box.Giovinco then nearly made it 3-1 with a long shot that hit the crossbar in the added time.On Monday, Italy makes a short trip to visit Malta, Azerbaijan plays at Croatia and Norway hosts Bulgaria. Markelle Fultz 76ers Jersey .Y. -- The Montreal Canadiens have had few reasons to celebrate this season as they have been mired near the basement of the Eastern Conference. Authentic Markelle Fultz Jersey .The Dallas Cowboys released Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, dropping the rush end as they prepare for several potential reinforcements to return to the defensive line.What is Arsenals Premier League record at Manchester United? How do Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wengers managerial records in England compare? How many dismissals has the Old Trafford fixture produced? Martin knows... Martin Tyler has the answers - plus, hit the video to see his latest tricky teaser.How to send your questions to Martin: Use the comments box at the bottom of this pageTweet @SkyFootball using the hashtag #TylersTeasersMartin Starting StatsBefore we focus on Manchester United v Arsenal, I was at Wembley for both of Englands games this week.All three of the goals against Scotland were headers. Its the first time this century that all the England goals in a game in which they scored three or more were headers.There have been 14 instances of this in the Premier League, most recently Crystal Palace against West Ham in February 2015 when they won 3-1 with two headers from Glenn Murray and one from Scott Dann.Moving on to Tuesday I witnessed only the third ever draw between England and Spain. The others were in May 1955 in Madrid and in the 1982 World Cup in Madrid.So this was the first ever draw in England - as long as you count the Euro 96 quarter-final as an England win.

(Martin, Manchester) Manchester United versus Arsenal fixtures have produced only eight red cards in the history of the Premier League MARTIN SAYS: Its certainly an incident-packed fixture when Manchester United take on Arsenal, with the two rivals once again meeting on Saturday lunchtime in a game you can see live on Sky Sports 1.However, in terms of games which have produced the most red cards in Premier League history, it is way down the list with 23 matches having seen more.There have been only eight dismissals in 48 Premier League clashes between the two sides, compared to the 21 in the 48 encounters played between Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton, which is the most in Premier League history.Heres the top five… Most red cards in a Premier League fixture - Top 5 Liverpool Everton 21 red cards 48 matches Liverpool Manchester United 16 red cards 49 matches Everton Newcastle 15 red cards 44 matches Liverpool Newcastle 14 red cards 44 matches Chlesea Everton 13 red cards 49 matches Aston Villa Newcastle 13 red cards 44 matches The best of enemiesWhat is Jose Mourinhos managerial record like against Arsene Wenger? (Cathy, Aberdeen) Jose Mourinho (right) and Arsene Wenger will go head to head once again on Saturday MARTIN SAYS:  Arsene Wenger has never tasted victory in the Premier League with Jose Mourinho in the opposition dugout.The pair have met on 11 occasions with Mourinho manager of Chelsea for all of those games, and the Portuguese boss had five wins and six draws.In fact, Wengers only victory against Mourinho was in the Community Shield in August 2015.Unsurprisingly, Sir Alex Ferguson (15) has the most Premier League wins against Wenger.Mourinho, meanwhile, is not even second on the list, with Mark Hughes picking up six wins against the Frenchman. Mourinho could equal that tally on Saturday.Rafael Benitez, Sam Allardyce, Harry Redknapp, David Moyes and Gerard Houllier have all enjoyed four wins over Wenger.Ref justiceI see Andre Marriner will take charge of Manchester United against Arsenal, how many red and yellow cards has he issued so far this season? (Barney, Southampton) Andre Marriner will be in charge of Man Utd against Arsenal, live on Sky Sports MARTIN SAYS: Marriner has refereed eight games so far this season, handing out 29 cautions and a single red card, which works out as 3.9 yellow cards per game. The one red card was Ahmed Elmohamady for Hull against Liverpool. He also showed nine yellow cards and three reds in a Europa League game between Panathinaikos and Ajax.Marriner has also awarded 163 fouls - 5.3 per match - and four penalties so far this season.In the Premier League this season, Bobby Madley has shown the most yellow cards, with 42 in eight matches, but he is yet to pull out a red card.

Arsenal have collected on average just 0.63 points per game at Old Trafford in the Premier League era What is Arsenals Premier League record like at Old Trafford? (Jack, Reading)MARTIN SAYS: Since the Premier League began in 1992/93, Arsenal have won only three times in 24 matches; an average of just 0.63 points per game, the joint-fewest at any stadium along with Sheffield Wednesdays Hillsborough (with a minimum of five games played).However, two of those victories were memorable ones, with a 1-0 triumph in March 1998 proving to be the catalyst for Arsene Wengers first-ever Premier League title, while their win by the same scoreline in May 2002 handed the Frenchman his second championship win. The other was also a 1-0 win in 2006, which was their last Premier League win there.

(John, Portsmouth) Since Mourinhos arrival in the Premier League in 2004, the Portuguese has won 65 per cent of his league matches MARTIN SAYS: Both have excellent points-per-game records in that time. Wenger has managed over double the amount of Premier League games since 2004 and has taken 1.94 points-per-game to Joses 2.16.Mourinhos first season in England in 2004/05 saw him take the title off Wengers Arsenal, and since then, the Frenchman has failed to taste Premier League success.Mourinho has won three Premier League titles since, with a win rate of 65 per cent, while Wengers stands at 56.7 per cent.Wenger has seen his side score more goals, at 1.90 per game to Mourinhos 1.76, but the latter has conceded far less; 0.73 per game to Wengers 0.99.
