overs after being put into bat. they made a slow start, and when moeen ali was out they were 189—6 in the 39th over. jos buttler and chris woakes repaired the damage. woakes made an unbeaten 50 and buttler reached a century off the last ball of the innings. a few moments ago australia were 158—3 in the 30th over. alexis sanchez is on the verge of joining manchester united from arsenal, after united midfielder henrikh mkhitaryan agreed to be part of a direct swap. the players will both have their medicals today. mkhitaryan‘s paperwork for his transfer was completed yesterday. the length of the armenian‘s contract at arsenal, and his salary, is undisclosed. sanchez missed arsenal's 4—1 win over crystal palace because he was travelling to manchester. the premier league paid
tribute to cyrille regis, with fans across the country taking time to remember the former england striker, who died last week. on the field, there were few surprises with those fighting for a top four finish all winning, as drew savage reports. before the action, time for reflection. football took a minute to celebrate the life of west brom, coventry and and england striker cyrille regis, who died this week at the age of 59. and then, business as usual. manchester city took another step towards the premier league title. record scorer sergio aguero was at it again — his 11th hat—trick for city. last week's defeat at liverpool, a distant memory. newcastle united on the receiving end, beaten 3—1. it is so important because we need goals and we score in the past, in the present and we will score in the future. it was an important finish. so city are still 12 points ahead of manchester united,
who ground out a 1—0 win at burnley. they only had two shots on target, romelo lukaku put in the hard yards... anthony martial put it away. that keeszose mourinho‘s side in second place, three points ahead of chelsea. they'd started 2018 with five draws and struggled for goals. at brighton, that was no longer a problem. commentator: willian. there's a lovely flow about chelsea here. it's absolutely sensational, what a wonderful goal! a great afternoon for eden hazard, as well as playing his part in willian‘s goal, he scored two himself and made this young man's day. arsenal reacted to last week's defeat to bournemouth by destroying crystal palace 4—1. all their goals came in the first 22 minutes, although they are still some way off the champions league places. and stoke city responded to new manager paul lambert with their first win for nearly a month. 2—0 against huddersfield, which means they're out of the relegation zone. elsewhere, leicester are up to seventh after beating watford.
everton versus west brom and west ham versus bournemouth both finished i—i. southampton host spurs at 4pm this afternoon. celtic cruised into the scottish cup fifth round with a 5—0 thrashing of brechin city. the scottish premiership champions have had a three—week winter break, and looked refreshed at celtic park. brendan rodgers fielded a strong team, despite his opponents currently sitting bottom of scottish football's second tier, without a league win all season. saracens are still in with a chance of retaining their champions cup trophy, after beating northampton saints 62—14. the defending champions had to win against saint to have a chance of making the quarter—finals. but, they still need other results to go their way today if they are to make the last eight. scarlets have no such worries. they beat toulon to become the first welsh side to qualify for the quarter finals since 2012.
bath and ospreys are out, though. there will be a new name on the masters trophy this evening with mark allen taking on kyren wilson. neither player has reached this stage before. allen knocked out two—time winner john higgins in his semi—final, having already beaten ronnie o'sullivan. wilson defeated world number three judd trump to make his first masters final. england won their opening match of the netball quad series against new zealand 611—57 at the copper box arena in london last night. the match had to go to extra time after the score was level at 49 points all at the end of regulation time. it's the fourth edition of the round robin format series between england, south africa, new zealand and australia, with all the teams preparing for april's commonwealth games on the gold coast. history was made at ascot yesterday as un de so won the clarence house chase for a record third time.
in testing conditions, jockey paul townend patiently guided the favourite home. it's the 8th grade one win for un de so who's trained in ireland by wille mullins. how's this for impressive driving... a mistake in heat one saw british bobsleigh duo meesha mcneill and montell douglas nearly come out of their sled at the final world cup event, before the winter olympics, but thanks to mcneill‘s quick reactions the pair narrowly escaped crashing. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, the papers. hello and welcome to our look at today's sunday morning papers. as usual a mixed bag of stories in today's editions —
which i will be reviewing with our guests in the studio. politics, celebrity engagements and donald trump so let's take a closer look with my guests. with me are the journalist and author lainy malkanithe, and political commentator james millar. starting off this morning's papers is the times, which says allies of the labour leaderjeremy corbyn are planning to deselect 50 moderate labour mps. the telegraph leads with comments from the foreign secretary boris johnson, arguing the uk should welcome a visit from donald trump. the sunday express says more than a 100 tory mps will demand the prime minister ends free movement and leaves the single market as soon as the uk exits the eu in march next year. the observer says the prime minister is to tackle pension abuse from greedy bosses who attempt to "line their own pockets" while failing to look after worker's pension schemes.
and the mail on sunday leads with an investigation carried out by channel 4 into three former conservative cabinet ministers, in what the paper calls a "cash for brexit" controversy. that is the papers in brief but let's talk about them in a lot more detail. lainy, let's start with the sunday telegraph. they have boris johnson saying, stop moaning about donald trump coming to britain on a visit, let's get him over here, we should welcome a visit from donald trump. i'm under the impression, u nless trump. i'm under the impression, unless i'm wrong, i thought there was a planned visit happening and then donald trump then said, i don't wa nt to then donald trump then said, i don't want to come. so it's not as the cancelled? yes, i think that's the case. the us embassy which has been moved to south london, was pretty dismissive about that move to south
london and said he won't come to cut the ribbon. so i'm not sure. boris johnson seems to want to continue really remind us of the special relationship, perhaps that is what is behind this, a reminder there is a so—called special relationship between the us and uk wants to remind us of that fact. but i wasn't under any impression an invitation was rescinded. i suppose he's having agoat was rescinded. i suppose he's having a go at the people that are saying they would protest against a trump visit, making him feel unwelcome. he says jeremy corbyn for example is guilty of anti—americanism and quotes and ignorant interest in the economic of this country. it is up to people if they want to protest, it's up to the individual. i do think this is about cementing the idea of the special relationship. he says this is the single most
important economic relationship there is. i wonder about those other countries in the world, the nations of the commonwealth for example, that britain was supposed to be making new trade relationships within the light of brexit. that seems to have been put on the back burner now. james, should we be more positive in rolling out the red carpet for donald trump and stop all these ideas of the protest if he comes customer i don't know about stopping the idea of a protest but there's a lot to say about a visit from donald trump, it would unite the nation. not boris johnson. i suspect is trying to remind people about borisjohnson... suspect is trying to remind people about boris johnson... he suspect is trying to remind people about borisjohnson... he came out in the week with his bridge to france idea, that presumably didn't get him enough attention so he's come outwith, how can i get attention? everyone pays attention when you talk about donald trump so i will talk about donald trump.
when you talk about donald trump so i will talk about donald trumpm it that simple? he's the foreign secretary, surely he's allowed to talk about relations with the united states. he is allowed to but why now? perhaps there was a re—shuffle in which it was trying to make sure there was no obvious successor to herand there was no obvious successor to her and safer position and in the la st her and safer position and in the last week boris has come out with a bridge defrance, which is a bit nuts, let's be honest, it's not going to happen. and now being controversial and saying we should welcome trump. in the wake of brexit, surely we do need trade deals with other countries, whatever you think of brexit, the reality is we will need new trade relationships and the united states is hugely important, so therefore it's a pretty good reason to roll out the red carpet for donald trump. but he is not banned from coming to the uk, so is not banned from coming to the uk, so he can come. if the suggestion is, is to make all those that wanted to protest about him and this uniting force you spoke about,
protests on the streets, then that is the democratic right of the people of this country. but it is his right to say, make an welcome, stop talking about protests. of course, exactly, but... he can come. no one is stopping him. there's a weird bit where it says the people that voted for trump are not bad people, they are on the whole good and kindly people. i get that, you cannot demonise the millions that voted for trump but people are going to protest, or who want to protest are also good and kindly people with erin point of view. everyone is good and kindly! including new two, of course. let's stick with america for a moment. the observer on their front pages, the latest on the dysfunctionality, i suppose, front pages, the latest on the dysfunctionality, isuppose, of washington and the fact that everything can just shut down because there's this deadlock on capitol hill and government services just shut down because they can't get a vote on the money, on
government spending money. yeah, i'm not sure it is dysfunction, at the risk of being controversial. it's the way the american system works, everyone has to work together to get through a deal. but that is not happening. that's not happening, thatis happening. that's not happening, that is the problem. the bizarre thing is we have a republican president and republicans controlling congress and the senate and still they can't agree to get a deal through, in terms of funding for various programmes that they need to agree on. it's a very weird system. we have had these shutdowns before in the united states but i don't think we have ever had it where it is the same party in control of the white house and congress. i was surprised to hear the last time there was a shutdown was 2013. it doesn't seem that long ago. i was watching interviews on tv yesterday, comments from people in the us that are likely to suffer as a result of this shutdown, in other words they won't be being paid, they
don't know if they can go into their jobs on monday, what will they do instead ? jobs on monday, what will they do instead? it was almost a very natural approach to this has happened before. if it was me, i'd be wondering how am i going to pay my mortgage question how will i afford to fill up the car with petrol, do you know what i mean? it seemed to be like a natural progress on, that this has happened before, only into thousands ten and will happen again. yet it's quite shocking to read principal services that many honest, law—abiding people go and work in and will not be able to go to theirjobs or be paid. 0k. let's come back to domestic events. the observer from page let's come back to domestic events. the observerfrom page has let's come back to domestic events. the observer from page has theresa may saying she will find greedy bosses who betray their workers, in terms of pension schemes especially, in the wake of the carillion disaster and bhs. a lot of examples where pensioners have suddenly seen
their pension schemes apparently in jeopardy. it is interesting. this is a new look observer, tabloid observer and they have got the prime minister to write something for them which is topical and will concern a lot of people. a lot of us don't know if we will retire or what we will get when we retire, very different to the baby boomers who had their guaranteed pension. it is an issue that ticks a lot of boxes. the only problem is theresa may has spoken about stuff like this before, putting workers on boards, working for the many and not the few, if you like and all this stuff. she spoken about it before and it hasn't happened yet. i just about it before and it hasn't happened yet. ijust wonder... about it before and it hasn't happened yet. i just wonder... you are holding your breath. a lot of talk about a white paper and points being discovered for a white paper. you feel may be potential owners feel betrayed by these big companies? it feels a bit like a
white paper or a new policy after the problem has happened. for a lot of people who have pensions and are coming up to receiving their pensions, it's a bit late in the day to say there are going to be tougher laws or sanctions or whatever, or that they will be keeping much more than i on this. why aren't... there isa than i on this. why aren't... there is a pensions regulator at the moment. in which case, is what has the pensions regulator been doing up until this point question mark that isa until this point question mark that is a big question. we will have another layer of legislation or another layer of legislation or another layer of keeping an eye on it but for many people that has come too late. the idea that government is getting involved in the private aspects of the way in which we are governed, perhaps we need to go and look at that again and look at the issue of private partnerships. the sunday times, a continuing story of the labour party, really, and what they see as the drift to the left.
jeremy corbyn allies looking to oust 50 labour mps. this is momentum really, isn't it? funny old story this one. first few paragraphs are exactly that. about what is going on it in westminster 's, rumours and it has been claimed that with momentum winning seats in the nec, they will use winning seats in the nec, they will use that to put pressure on mps they think are not quite on board with the left—wing agenda. then there is a sort of gear changing to the story of haringey, this north london borough where it looks like the candidate will probably win control in may. it is a really interesting story because it might turn out to be like in the 80s, one of these nutty councils that does all these properly left—wing things. but it might not, it might work out well. it was keeping an eye on. for example, worried about putting it as
a splash of labour because it looks london centric. do you think labour is lifting to the left, lainy, or momentum driving out moderates?” thought labour was on the left rather than drifting into the left. drifting to the hard left.” rather than drifting into the left. drifting to the hard left. i think the way this is written is quite sinister. there's this hit list that exists. but calling hilary benn of all people on a hit list... i don't wa nt to all people on a hit list... i don't want to pigeonhole people into being ha rd left want to pigeonhole people into being hard left but he doesn't strike me as the troublemakers of the labour party kind of things to buy a quick look at another story on the front page of the sunday times, a slightly lighter story. michael gove having a go at clock watching civil servants, doesn't think they are working hard enough it seems. again, back to that re—shuffle on people trying to get some attention for the michael gove has a story on the front page. he
reckons civil servants, not that they don't work hard enough, well he does think that, but they do their hours that is it. that apparently is wrong in michael gove's world. that seems entirely sensible. there is a brilliant exchange round the cabinet table apparently, when michael gove we nt table apparently, when michael gove went ona table apparently, when michael gove went on a brand and complained about it the pm riley replied, it's called flexible working, michael, and we as a government support it. i think for a government support it. i think for a lot of people who do flexible working more might want to use flexible working in the future pleased to see the pm is on board with that. lainy, an interesting story in the sunday telegraph about lipstick knives which are being advertised for sale on instagram among other places.” advertised for sale on instagram among other places. i found this... given the level of knife crime that we are experiencing in particular, i don't want to say throughout the country but in london and in other cities, that... the called lipstick
knives because they fit in your handbag, in stereotypical pink colours, there is a cat knife out there that you can slip into your handbag and it is very much geared towards a female market. i find handbag and it is very much geared towards a female market. ifind it quite disturbing, this piece, that these are being advertised on instagram and banned in the uk but being advertised on instagram. instagram and banned in the uk but being advertised on instagramm the idea they are for self defence? is that why they are being advertised? not even the self defence, they are not going to be used at all. they are kind of like mementos of things you mightjust put on your windowsill. somebody actually bought one for his wife, went to america and bought one for his wife and just thought, she just liked colourful things that sparkled. but i find it, as i said given the fact that there is knife crime, this level of knife crime and that these pocket knives are being advertised, which are illegal in this country, you can't buy it here,
you can buy it on the internet and thatis you can buy it on the internet and that is a worrying thing. james comey worried by that?” that is a worrying thing. james comey worried by that? i think this is because a bunch of the stories. they have pictures of the knives and they do look like lipsticks and you wonder why anybody would or need to have one, really. they are described as the mermaid, the fans of all rainbow, the rainbow blade and being pictured on instagram with hashtags like girl powerand pictured on instagram with hashtags like girl power and like a girl. there is no goal power of carrying a knife. there is nothing nicer glamorous about it. but one of my concerns is the way it is covered. because it's the papers, they focus on instagram. i think the story stands up on its own about the knives but papers like to have a dig at social media because they are rivals. let's end off with a nice story about ed sheeran, who is going to marry his schoolboy crush according to the sunday times. this
isa according to the sunday times. this is a story in a lot of the papers today. ed sheeran getting married to a girl he knew at school. very cute. never dated her at school as i understand. they got together later on. he had an accident and she looked after him for a whole year. he talked about... what's the name, cherry seaborn, having looked after him every single day whilst he took time to recuperate. love has blossomed. he is 26, she is 25, far too young to be getting married in my opinion but what do i know! what is the ideal age? these are young people. if they were my kids would i be saying, yet, get married. wait a few years. james, are you happy? he isa few years. james, are you happy? he is a divisive figure, ed sheeran. i think he can write a decent song, fair play to him. he's a modern pop star, marrying an accountant. pop stars used to marry... there's
nothing wrong with that! a cocaine fuelled supermodel... he's marrying an accountant, living up to his boring image. good luck to him. i hope is not listening to those cruel comments. paul for ed sheeran. and the cats are happy for them as well! that is it from the papers for today. thank you both. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thanks again to my guest and we will see you soon. bye—bye. we are going to have some fun with the weather today, that's for sure. snow already falling across some parts of the country. some ice
around as well, so is take it steady on the roads. we had some huge contrast and the temperature. it was the coldest night of the winter so far in scotland, dipping down to minus 13. at the same time, it was 11 degrees in penzance. when we get this huge temperature contrast, that means there is a weather front moving across the uk. that weather front is encountering the cold air across the north and east and so a period of snow in the forecast. this is what it looks like around 3pm. snow across the highlands and there could be a fresh covering of 10—15 centimetres across the upland areas. snow falling throughout yorkshire. at this stage, i think snow will have moved across parts of the midlands towards the east. just because you can see rain doesn't necessarily mean it will be rain, it might be sleet or snow lying on the ground. different story across the south. here it will be mostly rain. we think the possibility of encountering some sleet or maybe a bit of snow is just about as far
south as the m4. through this evening, the atlantic winds will start pushing in the much milder air. there will be a lot of low grey cloud, hill fog. some of that snow will still lie round, time for it to thaw but those temperatures will be climbing through the course of the night into this evening. as we go through the night itself, you can see there is still some rain around in the south. these are the temperatures we will have first thing on monday morning, around 9 degrees in the south. above freezing generally in the north. tomorrow itself, monday, is entirely different. you will see no snow in the forecast. there will be some sunshine around with a bit of cloud as well. seven in newcastle, eight across northern england and in the south double digit temperatures. as far as the week ahead is concerned, huge low—pressure across the atlantic, meaning it will push in milderair in our atlantic, meaning it will push in milder air in our direction. a bit of cold air in the atlantic always
sitting ready to come our way but i think it will be mostly the milder air that will be affecting us, at least for the first half of the week. with that comes from wind and rain. that is it from me, bye—bye. this is bbc news. i'm ben brown. the headlines at ten: afghan security forces regain control of a hotel in kabul after it was seized by gunman — six civilians died and 160 others were rescued. the ukip leader henry bolton fights to keep his job as the party holds an emergency meeting to discuss his future. critics say it's time for him to go. on monday, if hendry is still the leader of this party we will lose members, activists, and donors, and this jeopardises the very existence our party. a new organisation to protect consumer safety — the government is setting up
