but the premier league is back with a bang, a big win we will be in austin, texas. lewis hamilton could win that this weekend. the premier league is back with a bang this weekend. manchester city, a win too for liveropool, they are level pegging at the top, but the early kick—off saw jose mourinho make another return to stamford bridge. he though he was going to get his first win there with manchester united, they were 2—1 up deep into injury time but ross berkely scored the equaliser for the blues that sees them remain unbeaten this season. mourinho though, reacted to the chelsea celebrations on the touchline and had to be restrained by stewards but he played it down afterwards. jo currie reports. some familiar faces in a warm welcome, a return to stamford bridge for the man who delivered chelsea three premier league trophies.
but times have changed. jose mourinho‘s man united starting today midtable. it didn't take long to see why. a header put the home side front. the guilty party paul pogba, losing his man much to his own dismay. whatever mourinho said at half—time had the desired effect. martial drew the team level. not that his manager was getting carried away. martial, a man on a mission firing into the corner for his second of the game. but chelsea haven't lost this season and they weren't about to let that record slip. first dabbed at luis, then a dig to save for england ross barkley settle things on the page. off of it, jose writing his own headlines. reacting to a member of chelsea back group staff to ensure the match ended in chaos. he was very impolite.
the coach took care of the situation. he apologised immediately and after the game, his assistant also apologised to me. which i accept his apology. for me, the story is over. but don't do what everybody does that says... i don't know his name, i don't even need to know, and i apologise because i also made some mistakes on football matches. so i accept his apology. i think we are the best team. even in the first half, when we were losing and we were not dangerous enough we were in control. i didn't see anything and then i spoke withjose. i understood immediately we were on the wrong side in the wrong way of the situation. sol have spoken with the member of my staff and i have dealt with this immediately.
seven other matches in the premier league. holly has the rest of the headlines from todays prmier legaue matches. thanks. talking about chelsea. two other teams also been so far. both in action today. liverpool and spurs all in action this afternoon. liverpool in the late kick off away to huddersfield. where it ended in a 1—0 victory to the reds mo salah's clinical strike proving the difference there— huddersfield fans might feel agrieved they didn't have at least one goal after one was disallowed... they have't scored at home since last april. let's head over to manchester where city were hosting burnley — all eyes on joe hart... making his first return to the etihad after calling time on his 12—year stay this summer. and what a punishing return it was, conceding five
goals this afternoon — 4 in the second half. not the return he will have been dreaming of, but again there was little he could do — a dominant performance from city this afternoon. and a result that puts them back at the top of the table. for staying on target, it is quite good. at the beginning, it was a little bit tough in the first half because i think... the second half was much better. and after the second and third goal, we scored quicker and it was more easier, but stones playing his natural position because kyle and daniel are out, but he did so well. many good things and the good news of kevin coming back and the performance of all of the guys. over at the london stadium, west ham hosting spurs and a lot of the talk around tottenham in the build—up to this game had
focused on how they've gone slightly under the radar this season so far. however a 1—0 win today makes it four successive league wins for mauricio pocchetino‘s side — erik lamela with the decisive goal there. a result that puts them level on points with chelsea. meanwhile at the cardiff city stadium... it was louder than a stereophonics gig as neil warnock‘s men got their first win of the season. it was a 4—2 victory over fulham. warnock remaining straight faced, but he had plenty to smile about after that performance. as cardiff move off the bottom of the table — above their opponents — and newcastle and huddersfield. elsewhere this afternoon, newcastle slipped to the bottom of the premier league after being beaten 1—0 by brighton. two goals in less than one minute saw watford seal their first win since september and end wolves' six—game unbeaten run and it wasn't exactly a classic on the south coast where it ended 0—0 between bournemouth and southampton.
let's have a look at the top of the table. manchester city moved two points clear at the the top— they remain above liverpool on goal difference... below them chelsea and tottenham — and arsenal in fifth who don't play until monday night. now you're up—to—date. it is good to haveit now you're up—to—date. it is good to have it back. we have missed it. i have it back. we have missed it. i have missed international football but i love my premier league. thank you, holly. in scotland, hearts are still top of the premiership after holding on for a 2—1 win against aberdeen celtic stay second after a 4—2 win over hibs. livingsone beat bottom club dundee 4—0. motherwell lost 1—0 at home to stjohnstone and kilmarnock are third in the table after a 2—1 win away at struggling st mirren. real madrid have lost again in la liga, a 2—1 defeat at the bernabeau to levante they were 2—0 down inside 13 minutes.
rafael varane's handball was to be inside the penalty area after the referee consulted var. roger marti converted the resulting spotkick — that made it 2—0. marcelo‘s pulled one back, but that ended a run of a82 mimnutes wiothout scoring, a club record. their fourth defeat in five games leaves them fifth in la liga with el clasico coming against barcelona next weekend. cricket now and england beat sri lanka by 18 runs in another rain hit one—day international — to give them an unassailable 3—0 lead in the five match series. the game had to be called off, an 18 run victory awarded to england under the duckworth—lewis stern method. every match on tour has been affected by the weather, but then they are touring in monsoon season. david domb reports. early overcast conditions were the backdrop as this rain affected series was a game against the weather and england looked determined to get
the better of the elements, they lead when chris woakes made an early breakthrough. spins were proven an effective strategy and had an impact as
moen alli trapped a lbw. rasheed was dismissed in the same fashion. rasheed dismissed in the same fashion. sri lanka's coaches could only watch on as it was set 274. that was more than achievable with the top an opening stand of 52 with alex hales when he was stumped thanks to some quick thinking. captain owen morgan and joe root kept the scoreboard ticking over, they were unbeaten and the total had already passed 18 runs and the series match was secured. and the series win was secured. it is nice to continue this format to build this form to build partnerships with other guys. and continue to win. it is frustrating we don't play a full game and you don't... today would have been a good run chase.
i also thought we had the best conditions. it was tough upfront for sri lanka for the first 20 overs against our spinners. but it did get better.
let's get more reaction now from henry moeran who's joined by test match special‘s simon mann in kandy. another victory for england in this one. but as you might be able to hear and see around us, another day affected by the weather. we will get onto that in a moment but simon from test match special, first of all, we should reflect on the fact that england for a second time ever, have won an odi series here. they won here 11 years ago, 3—2. they are expected to win. sri lanka are really struggling. they have low confidence and england are the world number one. they still have to do the job and play. they played three different games all affected by the weather. we had the first game were it went first, second, they won it with a shorter game,
21 overs a side in night—time. greasy conditions and today they had to challenge of staying ahead on duckworth—lewis which wasn't easy. england were in control but it was not easy to stay ahead. a different test for them today. an argument to say having the difficult calculations by reduced over matches isn't the worst preparation considering the world cup in england next year in june. you could easily face similar conditions. it is a difficult spectacle for the spectators, you want to watch a full 50 overs. you don't want the game reduced by rain and bad weather or bad light. you want to play the full 50 overs. but you don't know. if england were to get to the semifinals, you might have a game like today, to stay ahead or a game like wednesday. and you have to adapt. that is what the world cup
is all about in england. if you play in somewhere like india, where the weather is constant, no problem at all. but you play in england, you never know what you will get. sun is unlikely. this weather, frustration throughout. the icc and ecb have made a statement about it and why this scheduling has happened now. it is very difficult. it is like putting together a difficultjigsaw puzzle trying to get all the international teams playing at different times in the year. sri lanka have had the asian cup and have got to go to new zealand next and australia. and a test series to play in england in november. ssometimes you just have to take a chance and play it in of the year that is not favourable. when england played here 11 years ago, that was in october
and they managed to play most to the cricket. it could've been much worse. there was a series in the caribbean with 76 overs the first four matches. cricket and the weather goes hand—in—hand. you just have to get on with it. that is what england had done. the england team are heading to colombo this evening and next odi is on tuesday, remains to be seen if we will need our umbrellas for that one as well. i bet they will. england winning that series. we will say a nice warm studio. also coming up in the programme... —— state and a nice warm studio. after a little bit of time out jadejones has her sights set on another olympic gold in tokyo. thing here in england, it is kind of reminded me why i used to win. —— reminding me. rugby union now and danny
cipriani rounded off a bad week by getting sent off during gloucester‘s champions cup defeat against munster at thomond park. he was left out of the england squad a couple of days ago, and his high tackle meant his teamates had to play for over half the match with 14 men. with all the details and some of the days other results in europe, here's clare thornton. despite the warm irish hospitality, thomond park has proven to be one of the least welcoming grinds for positing sides in europe. true to form, it was a munster who opened the scoring. my kelly try coming as the scoring. my kelly try coming as the host capitalise on tom savic time in the sin—bin. danny cipriani capped gloucester within reach but little did he know that tom savic was merely keeping the bench warrant for him. no sooner had the second rover returned windass charged that the cipriani dismissal. your shoulders directly on the face. i have no option. with the man
advantage, munster blasted their way toa advantage, munster blasted their way to a try bonus point, secured by sammy arnold and 56 minute. a spark ignited an gloucester, two tries in six minutes was followed by this by ben martin. but with just a minute left, the coveted fourth try eluded them. munster marched onto the top of full two and gloucester leave with nothing to show but their fighting spirit. it was a much tighter affair at the ricoh arena where one of england's newest recruits for the scoring under way. jo cox managed to grind the ball and get back off of the mark against ross. bath's 14 point lead was cut dramatically after the break, at the sides traded points, with thomas young converting to try and eventually sealing the 35 all draw. in scotland, edinburgh thrashed toulon by a0 points to ia. running
infour toulon by a0 points to ia. running in four tries to get three—time european champions. christine intercepted for their fourth as edinburgh moved to the top of full five with the other group between newcastle and montpelier to be played on sunday. running that some of the other actions. —— from the government had action. two—time winners saracens claimed their second pool win with a bonus point victory over lyon. alex lewington going over the line in the 77th minute to keep sarries above cardiff who play glasgow tomorrow. elsewhere in the champions cup, exeter struggled yet again — beaten 29—25 by ia—man castres. meanwhile, over in paris, racing 92 beat ulster aa—12. in the challenge cup — worcester beat ospreys 27 points to 21. sale won comfortably at home to connacht. but the english clubs didn't have it all their own way bristol narrowly lost to italians zebre. formula one now. nick parrott‘s here — what a weekend it could be for lewis hamilton...
on the verge of winning his fifth formula one world title and he'll do it, if things go his way at the us grand prix in texas. nick you've been following the build up to race, and everything is pointing towards another title nick. it certainly is. i don't think hamilton could have possibly find a better place for his first chance to win the title. he absolutely loves this track. he has won the last four races here and been on pole for the last two. final practise under way right now, here is decided he really doesn't want to see tomorrow. stuck behind his title rival sebastian vettel. that is an unlikely scenario because the ferrari driver has been handed a three place grid penalty after speeding during a red flag in first practise. the highest vettel can first practise. the highest vettel ca n start first practise. the highest vettel can start the race is fourth place and to deny hamilton the title he
needs to finish within eight points of him. we think about it if he does do it, it is very likely, you have to think woman looked back of the season, how will we view with chris mckee hasn't really been challenged. —— when we have a look back. mckee hasn't really been challenged. -- when we have a look back. let's have a look at the standings. as you can see it's then a two horse race with wayne hamilton and vettel. bob costas went off and third and a mercedes boss described him., ten assist this is been one of his greatest seasons but you could argue that for robbery and vettel have thrown it away. eight weeks ago that had the fastest car and is even fell to pieces. in italy he crashed into hamilton and ended forth. in singapore has for robbery time messed up the strategy and finished third. last time the japan, desperately trying to move out, compete crash. they lost a lot of points. hamilton has shown that he is the best driver so far. but he is
not having to level of competition he had when he was up against nico rosberg. it is not over to that is over. thank you, nic. qualifying is ten o'clock this evening in austin. double olympic taekwando champion jadejones says she may continue beyond the next games — tokyo 2020. after struggling with motivation in recent years, she now says she's been reenergised by mentoring other young athletes. tomorrow, she'll take part in the world taekwondo grand prix in mancheste but she's just got back from argentina, where she has been giving advice to those competing at the youth olympics — an event she won back in 2010. bbc sport's nick hope spoke to her in buenos aires. jadejones, back where it all began, at a youth olympics. an event which eight years ago marked the start of a journey to the summit of her sport. just walking around, you do get those feelings back. i remember standing on the podium in singapore with the flag going up for the first time.
on that podium i genuinely believed i could do this for real. since that day, that's all i wanted to do. she would go on to claim olympic titles at london 2012 and rio 2016. but has often swapped taekwondo for tv over the last two years. lots of people disagree and have different views on it, but i'd been training since i was a kid and haven't had the childhood or a normal teenage years. it's hard being an athlete. it's definitely important for me to switch off and have a break. judging by results at this year's youth olympics, the current crop of taekwondo talent isn't quite at the level of jade jones yet, as they failed to win any medals. but the fighter insists she's been inspired by being around the olympic environment here in buenos aires and says she is more motivated than ever to become the sport's first three—time champion. it's reminded me of why i used to win. that grit and hunger to become the best.
do you think about after tokyo? some good questions! i can't imagine wanting to retire in a year and a half, but who knows what the future holds? now it's two years to tokyo again, so switch back in, ready to get that third gold medal. jade jones competes tomorrow, earlier this afternoon two—time world champion bianca walkden guaranteed at least a bronze medal in manchester, you can watch her semi final and potentional final live on the red button or the bbc sport website this evening — coverage is already under way. kyle edmund has the chance to win his first tour title. he's into the final of the european open. britain's number one, who is the top seed in antwerp, beat richard gasquet in straight sets. he'll meet gael monfils
in tomororw‘s finale in belgium. edmund lost his only previous final appearance which was in morocco earlier this year. it's the last day of competition at the 2018 world para table tennis championships in slovenia where britain's ross wilson has won the men's singles class eight, beating china's zhao shuai 3—2. the commonwealth champion saved three match points to claim his first title in celje. elsewhere, semi final defeats for fliss pickard and tom matthews meant they had to settle for bronze. ben croucher reports. welcome to this hall in celje. home of the para table tennis championships and what a four days of competition we've had. athletes of all different levels of impairment competing, from those in wheelchairs and those standing and you really have a sense of the excitement going into day before play even got under way today.
a light show greeted our competitors and the man who enjoys centrestage more than most was ross wilson. the commonwealth champion competing in his first world based three match points against the double paralympic champion zhao shuai. he saved it and when his moment arrived in the fifth and final set, made it count. all the more special to him after nearly having quit the sport four years ago to injury. it is a crazy feeling. it is the world championship final. against a player i lost to the semifinal in london. it is incredible. he's an amazing player as well. to beat him in the final is something amazing. britain were already assured further metals but the question was the colour. fliss pickard stunned everybody to reach her world semifinal but lost out in sets. then tom matthews who broke his neck in a mountain biking accident when he was 16, had to settle for class one bronze. three medals does fall within the targets set for uk sport it could have been even better for great britain and the likes of paralympic champions will bailey
and rob davis and six other brits all lost on friday, nonetheless with three new medallist and one new world champion, the championships have proved that great britain's drive for metals at major championships is still delivering. it's champions day at ascot, and cracksman has won the champion stakes again— a son of the great frankel, and the six fifths on favourite, was racing in blinkers for the first time but frankie dettori brought him home six lengths clear of crystal ocean. cracksman also won this race last year. that was a part of a treble for trainerjohn gosden. before we go — a reminder of our top story. chelsea score in stoppage time to drew with manchester united, while manchester city beat burnley five nil at home. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more throughout the evening. goodbye.
hello. for much of england and wales is been a day of sunshine. barely a cloud in the sky behind me. we've had temperatures quite widely, 17 or 18 celsius and a different story across the western side. miss hilton fog patch patchy and drizzle and drizzle and the ads, and then the contrast to the east of scotland. a good deal of sunshine there. the high temperature today, for celsius. through this evening and overnight clearer skies and much of england and much of england's and wales the england's wealth but the eastern side, notice how the cloud will build. western fringes of wales and west of scotland and more persistent rain arriving. but mild here, 11 to 13 celsius, further south a little
