Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:

https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto%3A4…CRoboto+Slab&ver=4.7.4

https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,700
Avoid landing page redirects

Your page has 2 redirects. Redirects introduce additional delays before the page can be loaded.
Avoid landing page redirects for the following chain of redirected URLs.
http://thesun.co.uk/
https://thesun.co.uk/
https://www.thesun.co.uk/
Prioritize visible content

Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.
The entire HTML response was not sufficient to render the above-the-fold content. This usually indicates that additional resources, loaded after HTML parsing, were required to render above-the-fold content. Prioritize visible content that is needed for rendering above-the-fold by including it directly in the HTML response.
Only about 46% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response.
Enable compression

Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.
Enable compression for the following resources to reduce their transfer size by 203.6KiB (74% reduction).
Compressing https://prod-betsense-sunbets.s3-eu-west-1.amazona…static/widgets.min.css could save 138.7KiB (79% reduction).
Compressing https://prod-sunbets-widgets.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaw…sense.min.js?ver=4.7.4 could save 59.7KiB (66% reduction).
Compressing https://prod-betsense-sunbets.s3-eu-west-1.amazona…-static/widgets.min.js could save 5.2KiB (68% reduction).
Optimize images

Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.
Optimize the following images to reduce their size by 143.7KiB (61% reduction).
Compressing https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/pagead/imgad?id=…LnNRABGAEyCNzw3wkSEOeh could save 89.6KiB (60% reduction).
Compressing https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/simgad/1631778786528562370 could save 31.9KiB (60% reduction).
Compressing https://secure-assets.rubiconproject.com/static/psa/casala_clk/15.png could save 22.2KiB (74% reduction).
Leverage browser caching

Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
Leverage browser caching for the following cacheable resources:
https://ir.tags.newscgp.com/prod/ncg/ncg.js (expiration not specified)
https://prod-betsense-sunbets.s3-eu-west-1.amazona…-static/widgets.min.js (expiration not specified)
