ROME yeezy boost 350 v2 uk sale , Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- Virna Lisi, a famed Italian actress and winner of numerous awards, died on Thursday in Rome at age of 78 yeezy boost 350 v2 uk , local media said.

During her career which started as a teenager in 1953, Lisi played memorable roles in European and Hollywood films receiving many awards including a career Golden Globe in 2004 and two David di Donatello Career Awards in 1996 and 2009.

Lisi in 1994 won the Prix D'interpretation Feminine prize at the Cannes Film Festival with her performance as the maleficent queen Caterina de' Medici in "La Reine Margot" by French director Patrice Cereau.

Lisi, who initially started her career also thanks to her stunning looks adidas pure boost x uk , played increasingly important parts in Italian films, co-starring with famous actors such as Alain Delon and Marcello Mastroianni.

In 1965, the blue-eyed adidas ultra boost uncaged black uk , blonde actress debuted in Hollywood, popping out of a wedding cake in 1965 comedy classic "How To Murder Your Wife" by American actor and film director Richard Quine.

But in the late 1960s she broke her seven-year contract with Paramount and was back to Europe, where she struggled to find roles suitable to her. More recently adidas ultra boost uncaged uk , her career mostly involved Italian TV series.

Born in Ancona, a city in central Italy, Lisi had been diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer one month ago.

Chelsea's next two games will define their season. They play Manchester United on Saturday evening and then second-placed Arsenal the following -weekend. The Blues are currently the favorites for the title adidas ultra boost 3.0 uk , as they have been since the season started, but they are stumbling rather than swaggering over the line.

So strong was the Stamford Bridge side's start to season that before they fell to Newcastle in December the media were talking about this Chelsea side in the same hushed tones as Arsenal's famous Invincibles. The unbeaten run may have ended but there has only been a January defeat to Spurs added to the loss column.

Being hard to beat is a Mourinho trademark and his current team have won four and drawn two of the last six. It's not been easy, though. The Blues have ground out wins and none has come by more than a solitary goal. Draws at home to Burnley and Southampton were expected to be wins and they were lucky to edge Stoke City at Stamford Bridge. In their most recent game adidas nmd city sock uk , against QPR, the Blues did not register a shot on target until the last few minutes but that matters little when it results in a goal.

Chelsea have lost momentum over the course of the season. Summer signings Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa hit the ground running but have struggled with form and injury since the clocks went forward. Tellingly, the usually unflappable Mourinho has lost some of his joie de vive on the bench. This season is the first where he has begun to look both tired and old.

Tactical battle

United visit Stamford Bridge on the back of six consecutive wins. These have included triumphs over Spurs adidas nmd xr1 mens white uk , Liverpool and Manchester City. In doing so United have climbed to third in the table, just a point behind Arsenal. To say no one expected this run of form would be to underestimate the ego of Louis van Gaal. The Dutchman has made the press eat their words in his first season in England and has genuine aspirations for the title. They will receive a boost if he can outwit his former protégé and lead his United side to victory.

It won't be easy. Mourinho is a master tactician willing to use athletes to displease aesthetes in his quest for three points. He has an unbeaten record against United in his two spells at Chelsea. He knows that a draw is good enough to end United's unlikely title dream so probably won't play for the win.

Van Gaal is equally shrewd and as willing to displease the soccer gods if needs must. Thankfully he has abandoned the turgid three at the back that was the trademark of his dour Holland side at the World Cup. United are playing good soccer and all of his earlier talk of a "philosophy" looks justified but he will prepare his side specifically for Chelsea.

Three-horse race

Wayne Rooney revealed that United targeted City's unwilling defensive runners in the derby. That's not a tactic that will work against the disciplined Blues. Nor can United afford to stifle the creativity of the home side, as much of their recent opposition has done. The visitors have to win if the Dutchman wants to finish his first season in England lifting the Premier League trophy and serving a few slices of humble pie. To do that they will have to let their hosts play and concentrate on the quick transitions that Van Gaal loves.

A United victory would really open Chelsea up to the possibility that they might not win the league. They would still have a five-point lead and a game in hand but they would also go into the Arsenal game in dire need of a win to silence the doubters.

Arsenal are the other form team in the Premier League. They have also won six on the trot and will surely watch this weekend's game at Stamford Bridge with hopes of a United triumph. The Gunners could then close the gap to four points when they host Chelsea the following week adidas nmd xr1 uk sale , if Wenger can finally overcome his inability to beat Mourinho.

Despite Chelsea and City going toe-to-toe at the top of the table for most of the season, we now have a three-horse race for the title. Chelsea face two games they can't afford to lose against teams who have to win.

Whatever happens it is unlikely to be enjoyed by the purist. As Mourinho said to his team prior to their FA Cup Final victory over United in 2007, "Do you want to enjoy the game? Or do you want to enjoy after the game?" They chose to enjoy after the game. Don't bet against them making the same choice for these next two "cup finals."
