7:45 pm
the manner in which they lost left even the players bemused. it was embarrassing for me, to be honest. it is unacceptable for this club, the level of players that we have. so it is another nightmare. it prompted crisis talks with club owners, the glazerfamily, and manchester united fans woke up to the news that their manager had gone. finally. finally, ole out. i think it was always going to happen. he started off well. at the start and then obviously the last seven - of games he's only won two. he spent all that money and he's just not good enough so a change is necessary, isn't it? many had wished for him to succeed. as a player he helped the team on the way to winning the treble in 1999, his famous late goal in the champions league final cementing him as a cult hero. and that was acknowledged by the club. they said...
7:46 pm
but in that time, he produced no silverware and for a club with high expectations like manchester united, that was not acceptable. the dream of the super sub with a late reprieve was not to be. jane dougall reporting there. so solskjaer has gone but he won't be forgotten by the manchester united faithful, and he gave an emotional interview earlier today i have given everything for this club. it means everything to me and together we are a good match but unfortunately i couldn't get the result is that we needed and it's time for me to step aside. michael is going to be in charge. i have the utmost respect, i love michael to
7:47 pm
bits. i'm becoming emotional now because it's tough and... they will because it's tough and... they will be fine, i will watch them and support them. well, for united fans, a miserable weekend was perhaps capped off by manchester city's resounding win at the etihad, against everton. pep guardiola's side are now three points off leaders chelsea in second place. drew savage reports. another good day at the office for pep guardiola. and raheem sterling, who has now racked up 300 premier league appearances. everton had kept city fairly quiet but they came up with something special in the 43rd minute. absolutely divine! there were five everton players between raheem sterling and joao cancelo and none of them could do anything to stop sterling getting manchester city the lead, and if that was a lesson in how to kick a football, how about this? everton didn't know what had hit them.
7:48 pm
an absolute rocket from rodri. rafael benitez could only sit and watch. a patient performance from the premier league champions wrapped up with four minutes to go. bernardo silva, 3—0, job done. drew savage, bbc news. impressive as always, city there. tottenham got their first league win under antonio conte this evening — they came from behind to beat leeds, in the late premier league game. joe lynsky reports. this is the man who wants to change spurs�* ways. antonio conte is a hands—on coach. most of football knows he gets results but the hard way. players say his first weeks in charge have been sprints and drills but here leeds united were quickest out of the traps. stuart dallas almost gave them a sensational start and while tottenham looked for marginal gains, it was leeds making the inches. spurs�* first half was drifting
7:49 pm
but the away side found late energy. on tuesday danjames set up the goal that earned wales a draw with belgium. now he was making an italian sad. how would conte rally spurs for the second half? well, the early signs showed promise. harry kane somehow hit the post but the breakthrough was coming. that scruffy equaliser was their first league goal under conte but now he wanted more and with sergio reggio�*s finish, the extra yards were paying off, the spaniard following in the most alert, spurs now 2—1 up. that was enough for the first win of a new era and spurs hope this is the conte effect. three points take them seventh but this club now know they have a man at the helm who makes teams contenders. julian ski, bbc news.
7:50 pm
after the first half, our fans and our supporters, after the first half, our fans and oursupporters, in after the first half, our fans and our supporters, in this type of situation, a lot of the time you go down. confidence goes down and i was a player and i know this. do have this second—half means the players come if they want can we can do better. rangers have started life without steven gerrard with a league cup semifinal defeat to hibernian. martin boyle scored a hat trick for hibs, his first from a corner afterjust 10 minutes. his second camejust 10 minutes later, slotting a fine finish beyond allan mcgregor before getting his third from the penalty spot. rangers pulled one back through scott arfield but it wasn't enough, with the match finishing 3—1 to hibs. they'll now face celtic in the final in december. women's super league leaders arsenal won 2—0 at manchester united in today's early kick off. it was goalless at half—time
7:51 pm
but soon afterwards, netherlands international viviane miedema cut in to score her 13th goal in 16 games and 1—0 became 2—0 after katie mccabe won arsenal a penalty and scored from it. that keeps the gunners unbeaten and top of the table. in the other wsl matches today, it was a five—star showing from chelsea. they won 5—0 against birmingham city, sam kerr with a hat—trick. they'rejust a point behind arsenal at the top. also wins for everton, reading and west ham. lewis hamilton has won the qatar grand prix to move to within eight points of the formula one championship leader, max verstappen. with just two races left this season. verstappen finished in second place in the desert race and took the bonus point for the fastest lap. patrick gearey reports. so much hangs over qatar as a sporting venue. are gestures of diversity and inclusion compatible with its record on human rights? should it be hosting a grand prix, and next year a football world cup? the race began with a crucial penalty and a chance
7:52 pm
for lewis hamilton. he was on pole, leading driver max verstappen trying to redeem his demotion to seventh. with hamilton safely clear, the first question was, how close could verstappen get to him? well, within five laps he was second. a swerve even he'd admire. this would be a battle of wits and pits. valtteri bottas left his tyres on too long, a blazing trail team—mate hamilton safely avoided. in wearing his rainbow helmet, he has made a point about this grand prix. hamilton on top in qatar! in winning it, he has earned 25 of them in the drivers�* standings. verstappen, though, was second and took the fastest lap. the gap between them is eight points with two grands prix left. the race is on. patrick gearey, bbc news. it was pretty straightforward. it's pretty lonely at the front, of course i enjoy those races where you're battling through but we needed those points today so i think a solid job from the team. our starting position
7:53 pm
was compromised but we had a really good start and i was quite quickly back into second so to get that fast lap was very nice and of course i know it will be difficult to the end but that's nice, it keeps it exciting. it certainly is exciting. ireland have finished off their autumn internationals with a dominant 53—7 win over argentina in dublin. the irish ran in seven tries in all, each coming from the forward line, dan sheenan getting this one over in a game where argentina were reduced to 14 men after tomas lavanini was sent off for a high tackle. england's women made it 18 test wins a row after thrashing usa 89—0. they ran in 15 tries from 12 different players to cap off a successful autumn campaign. england's focus will now be on attempting to win a third women's six nations title in a row in april. we have moved things on in the course of the last month, we have moved things on in terms of notjust our game
7:54 pm
but in the women's game and showing if you resource the players properly and back them, what they can deliver and if you think you had five or six teams who were delivering at that level, you would have a great world game so i'm really pleased because of that. meanwhile, wales women lost to a resurgent canada who came from 7—nil down to win 2a points to 7. britain's joe salisbury and partner rajeev ram were beaten in the atp doubles final in turin. the pair lost the first set and took the second to a tie break but struggled to pull things back as france's pierre—hugues herbert and nicolas mahut claimed the title with a 6—4, 7—6 victory. and in the singles, alexander zverev beat the defending singles champion, daniil medvedev. it's the second time zverev has won the atp finals title and finishes off a successful year for the german — winning six titles including the olympic gold medal. let's get a check on the day's other sports stories now. britain's bryony page won gold at the trampoline
7:55 pm
and tumbling world championships in baku. page won in the women's trampoline final with this routine. she's already won two olympic medals, including a bronze in tokyo this summer, frenchman sebastian ogier claimed his eighth world rally championship in nine years in italy earlier today. ogier ended his world rally championship career in style with victory at monza after a thrilling duel with britain's elfyn evans, who finished second in both the race and season standings. and jin young ko has the lead coming to the close of the lpga's season ending tour championship in florida. the world number two had a share of the lead coming into the final day, but her stellar showing so far, has put her 22 under two shots clear of japan's nasa hataoka. finally to a frustrating day for rory mcilroy — who held the lead with four holes to go at the world tour championship in dubai. it could have been a third victory in the european tour's season—ending event. but the honour went
7:56 pm
to america's collin morikawa after a phenomenal final day — earning him a slice of history. as our golf correspondent iain carter explains. yes, absolutely. i think it was very special, a 66, coming home in 31 and the backdrop to it is important to remember. yesterday his final 12 holes, he created a number of birdie opportunities, he could not take any of them and finished his round with 12 straight pars. he opened up today with six straight pars and it looked like it might be another frustrating day and there was pressure from matt fitzpatrick and then suddenly he managed to birdie the seventh and then embarked on a real tear on the back nine, and the timing was impeccable, coming home in 31, 66 and proved a comfortable winner. how disappointed will rory mcilroy be with his performance in not seeing this through, he was also going for a landmark in dubai? he didn't say anything to us afterwards but i think
7:57 pm
he is disappointed and the evidence of him ripping his shirt in anger tells us all we need to know about his mood. he was unlucky when his approach to the 15th hit the flag and bounced back into the bunker but he couldn't get up and down the previous hole, he failed to get up and down for a birdie and then there were three putts on the 16th so there was some wasteful play on the way in which opened the door for collin morikawa and rory mcilroy will feel this is one that got away and will feel painful as a result. let's see if he can bounce back. that's all from sportsday. we will see you again next time. as the picture suggests, sunday has been a bright,
7:58 pm
fresh day across many parts of the british isles, certainly a cooler feel than we've had of late, and that's the feature that you'll notice going through the next few days as well. in the short term, some isolated showers for some areas. they will tend to fade away as we get on through the next few hours or so. and overnight willjust be left with a few across this far southeastern quarter. cold weather fronts just pushing in across the far north of scotland, keeping the temperatures up with an associated cloud here. but further south, with the skies clearing quite markedly, i think we'll end up with quite a widespread frost in many inland areas. so it's a bright, fresh start to the new day on monday for southern scotland, much of england and wales, northern ireland, till the clouds up here and always that bit cloudy northern ireland, though it clouds up here and always that bit cloudy across the north of scotland with bits and pieces of rain coming through on what is not going to be more of a westerly breeze. so maybe notjust feeling as cold as it did do through the course of sunday,
7:59 pm
but still a high of only ten.
