we became a little bit nervous. so it was a bad day. so we were not in oui’ it was a bad day. so we were not in our best. and teamwork, when you consider the contact is so fast, could have been better. and we tried. in the key moment we have the chance to score. in general, the game was not in the way we wanted to play. it was a bad day. teams in the premier league have those. so we lost the game. city's neighbours, manchester united, also had an afternoon to forget. teenager matty longstaff, with the winner for newcastle. the defeat leaves ole gunnar solskjaer‘s side two points above the relegation zone — and with just two wins this season. last season, when i was very disappointed in the attitude. attitude is a very good, it's
spot—on. and they're working hard. of course, when you lack six of the starting 11 from the first leg game of course that will effect. that will take an impact on our performances. we willjust work hard to get them fit and back. the boys who are here now, they are still working hard. so an uphill task. very disappointed. an opportunity lost today, i felt. in the day's other games, arsenal moved up to third, just a point behind manchester city, after winning 1—0 against bournemouth. david luiz with his first goalfor the club. and chelsea are up to fifth — they hammered southampton 4—1. tammy abraham, mason mount, ngolo kante and michy batshuayi with the goals. the world athletics championships in doho have come to a close, with the usa topping the medal table. —— doha. there've been standout performances from the event over the last week — names to look out for at next year's olympics — and some controversial talking points. our reporter ade adedoyin
has more now from doha, starting with the men's isoom. timothy cheruiyot has had to play second fiddle to his training partner elijah manangoi over the last few years, but he finally wins his first global title. manangoi isn't here because he has an ankle injury. he beat him in london and the commonwealth games. he told me he came here hoping to win the gold medal that would springboard him to more success in tokyo. mission accomplished. the same thing forjoshua cheptegei, who got a silver medal behind mo farah in london. he upgraded it to a gold here. a lot of pressure going into the home straight from the ethiopian trained by alberto salazar but he accelerated away to claim his first global outdoor title. a great story in the woman's hurdles, nia ali gave birth to a child injune, returning this year. she has said that being a mother is no barrier to success and it spurred her on and she produced a bit of an upset in beating the world record holder, keni harrison, who settled for second place.
the women struggling in the marathon last weekend. over a third of them had to pull out. the issue regarding alberto salazar who has been banned. what the iaaf is to celebrate is the youngsters. and in the women's event, you have got the world record breaker and now has a rivalry with the rising star in the sport. we hope this will continuously go into they big year. on that point of view this port is healthy. this is to be learned over what has happened over the past two weeks. well, the president of athletics governing body, lord coe, has defended the hosting of the championships in qatar. there's been criticism of poor attendances in doha, alongside questions of country's
human rights record. but coe said it's important that events like this are held in different parts of the world. it is really important that this sport moves around the world, that it cannot forge its relationships based on political structures or transitory political systems. we would not have sporting relationships if we predicated them on that. and that's why sport will continue to work and sweat as hard as it does to make social change. kevin na has one in las vegas. he claimed his fourth pga tour title. jon rahm has become the first player to successfully defend the open de espana title for 66 years. it's his fifth european tour title. the spaniard shot a final round of 66 to finish on 22—under par — five shots ahead
of compatriot rafa cabrera bello. samuel del val finished third to make it a spanish one, two, three. the win takes rahm above open champion shane lowry on the european tour's race to dubai. there are seven tournaments remaining in the season. i woke iwoke up i woke up this morning with those nerves. and they didn't know what to do with that. figured it was a good thing. it is that child in that i'd still have some of that innocence of just being excited to perform. and it helped out. they started playing such good goal. you know the password dropping in, but still i've played so solidly on the first ten holes —— putts. eye came in and it was a great defence. i could not think of any way better to do it, just to walk the last few holes knowing that i have one and enjoying every second of a —— eye came in. naomi osaka has won the china open after coming back from a set down, to beat world number one ashleigh barty. it's osaka's second title in asia
after clinching the pan pacific open in japan last month. she's yet to lose a match since her fourth—round exit at the us open, extending her run to ten victories. dominic thiem is the men's champion after coming from a set down to beat stefanos tsitsipas. it's thiem's fourth title of the year, after victories at indian wells, barcelona and austria. world number one novak djokovic has won the japan open, beating john millman in straight sets, winning his fourth title of the year. it was the serbs first tournament since he withdrew from the us open in september with a shoulder injury. djokovic needed just 70 minutes to beat the australian 6—3, 6—2 in the final in tokyo. in motogp, marc marquez has won his sixth world title, following victory in thailand — despite a crash two days ago which put him in hospital. he recovered to secure the title with four races to spare. the spaniard had to win at least two points more than closest rival andrea dovizioso — and did so as the italian finished fourth.
you can get all the latest sports news at our website. that's bbc.com/sport. but from me, gavin ramjaun, and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. hello. it's been another very wet to 2a hours for some. western scotland, overnight into sunday, had nearly 60 millimetres of rain in places. in east anglia, we had 40—50 millimetres of rain through the course of sunday, which has resulted in flooding. and, in fact, there are a number of flood warnings in force across the rivers in scotland and england. and with more rain to come in the next 2a hours that's not good news. the grounds saturated as well. but more rain is what we have. this next dominant area of low pressure is advancing in. so we're looking at severe gale force winds through the course of the day across parts of northern and western scotland and gales in other areas in the north
and west as well. combined with yet more rain it will be particularly unpleasant as we go through the rush hour. we could see some mist and some fog under the clearer skies further east. but a very windy day across northern and western areas, very wet through the rush hour as well. we're not as expecting as much rain as we've had in the past 2a hours, but nevertheless the ground is saturated so it will go straight onto the roads and into the rivers. there'll be lots of spray and standing water for those travelling. and, of course, the strong and gusty winds, which will eventually blow the rain away from scotland and northern ireland, allow some brighter skies, but heavy showers to follow. and it could take much of the day for that rain to get into southern and eastern areas, once the fog has cleared away. it doesn't look as wet for east anglia as it was during the day on sunday. but nevertheless more rain is not good news. now, it does meander its way into the near continent as we head into tuesday morning. it's very close by, so it drags its heels a little bit. and then that low pressure is moving a little closer
to the north—west of scotland. so still windy in northern and western areas. but windier, potentially, across england and wales on tuesday, which will blow the showers in. so it's more of a showery day. but the showers will tend to merge at times to give longer spells of rain. strong and gusty winds will blow them right the way east across england and across scotland, northern ireland, and wales as well. and they will be heavy. there will be torrential downpours with hail and with lightning and therefore thunder. but temperatures are doing quite well. no real frost worries this week. temperatures by day a little above average or around average. another very showery picture, as you can seem on wednesday, perhaps clumping together in places to give longer spells of rain. and perhaps fewer reaching eastern areas, but we're clutching at straws for the detail. the devil is in the detail this week. but it does look very showery for most of us. of course there will be some sunshine, but it will often be quite windy with that low pressure sat close by. no sooner does that one start to move away, by the end of the week we have another area of low pressure coming in and yet more weather fronts with those. so as ever you can stay up—to—date on the website.
