6:32 pm
hello and welcome to sportsday — i'm lizzie greenwood—hughes. here's what's coming up on tonight's show: james anderson becomes the first englishman to take 500 test wickets. the premier league is back, but transfer wannabee, philippe coutinho, remains out in the cold at liverpool. and is this the future of football? spurs unveil their new stadium's ground—breaking pitch design. iamat i am at wembley for the launch of the women's news super league season. so, lots coming—up tonight, but we're starting with cricket because it's still all about the bowlers in the deciding test between england and west indies and today that bowler was james anderson, who became the first englishman to take 500 test wickets. england are still playing. there
6:33 pm
have been a few rain delays at lord's. 0ur correspondentjoe wilson has been watching at lord's. a huge cheer for anderson, joe. absolutely. in terms of the great statistical history of cricket and all those records, we will reflect onjames all those records, we will reflect on james anderson's 500 all those records, we will reflect onjames anderson's 500 test wickets. in the context of the match, bronze from ben stokes and stuart broad were important because it continues to be a test match when the bowlers are dominant. here we are in the second day, we could be playing for another 55 minutes. at the start of the day, with the weather i wasn't sure we would even get play after lunch, let alone that wicket as england bowled again. let's stop for a second and i will ta ke let's stop for a second and i will take you to the key events of the day's play. september test match requires
6:34 pm
patience. what begins with rain can end with sunshine. lord needed electricity for the floodlights. there is an alternative source of energy. ben stokes... in terms of all—round cricket talent, he looked like the world leader, in front of the prime minister. west indies could have got rid of ben stokes when he made 24. costly because he was the only player in this match to actually make batting seems straightforward. here comes a strange episode. 160, ben stokes was out. but look at the front foot of the fast bowler, gabriel. no ball. there you go, he's back in. two balls later, he is out again. except, don't worry, yourfront balls later, he is out again. except, don't worry, your front foot was fine. moeen ali was out and then roach had to watch england stretched their lead to 71 with stuart broad
6:35 pm
enjoying himself. great fun if you are his sister, not so enjoyable for the bowler. then it was his turn, just after 5:15pm james anderson reached his everest. if you could choose a way to reach 500 test match wickets, you would select something like this. kraigg brathwaite utterly dismissed and nobody has done more with bat and ball over a careerfor england than anderson. he is not waving goodbye, he has intimated he can play test matches until he is 40. stuart broad has also taken a wicket in the windies‘ second innings. technically, we have three more days of this test match. this is great news for the bowlers, great news forjames anderson, but what does it say about test cricket.
6:36 pm
second day, rain delay and already the windies are into their second innings? these are unusual conditions. september, very strange for lord's to be hosting a test match so late in the season. it has been a busy season trying to pack the test matches in as well as the champion/ v. for much of this match the floodlights have been on and those are the conditions that sued bowlers, especially with the cricket ball be used in england which swings around a lot. there is a pertinent point you raise, by the time we get to the ashes, will this be useful practice question what difference conditions that england will face in australia. after 40 overs and 40 degrees heat in perth, willjames anderson still think test match cricket is so enjoyable? i expect so. cricket is so enjoyable? i expect so. he expects to be back the bowling for england next summer, and so bowling for england next summer, and so doesjoe root. bowling for england next summer, and so does joe root. don't be buying a
6:37 pm
ticket for a fifth day at lord's. right, let's move on to football. the international break is over, the premier league is back and joining me to discuss as much as we can is the former manchester city, everton and england defenderjermaine jensu. welcome to sportsday, thanks forjoining us. plenty to discuss with a full premier league programme this weekend, we'll take a look at the big games including your old club city against liverpool ina minute. but the big news from that game is also football's top story of the moment, jurgen klopp has left philippe coutinho out of the liverpool side. apparently he still has a back injury, dspite playing it comes the same day it's announced premier league clubs voted to change the transfer window to end before the season starts. so the transfer window is over before the season starts. this is what it's all about, isn't this what clu bs a re what it's all about, isn't this what clubs are trying to avoid? they are definitely trying to avoid it. i am not 100% sure coutinho has been
6:38 pm
dropped. i think it is the right decision byjuergen klopp. he has been playing for brazil. he hasn't been playing for brazil. he hasn't been with the team for a number of weeks due to his so—called back injury, he had in the period when he was getting sought after by barcelona. this new rule being brought in by the premier league, some managers agree with it, some don't. either way, it some managers agree with it, some don't. eitherway, it is some managers agree with it, some don't. either way, it is going ahead. but i don't think it plays into the premier league club and is. it will be a disadvantage to the clu bs it will be a disadvantage to the clubs in europe. coutinho played for brazil and scored for them in the international break. they say he has a back injury, but it does look good when you play for your country and you haven't played for your club, then when you come back from playing for your country, you are still injured and everybody knows you want to leave? coutinho was desperate to go to barcelona. liverpool held back on the bed and fought back. and the
6:39 pm
back injury, i am guessing it is obviously false back injury because he has gone to brazil and performed in both of those games. they have some rebuilding to do, but coutinho, iam sure some rebuilding to do, but coutinho, i am sure will go back to liverpool eventually in terms of in his mind, get back on the training pitch and perform how he usually does. that will be something different daily—macro the fans will forget. will be something different daily-macro the fans will forget. we havejuergen klopp daily-macro the fans will forget. we have juergen klopp here. he came yesterday, and accepted 100%, the situation. it isjust the situation. now, i really think we should all use the situation. we have a wonderful player in our squad who wants to get fit and play for this club. we don't know how long he will play for the club. sometimes we wa nt will play for the club. sometimes we want to send players away and players think about the future also,
6:40 pm
it isa players think about the future also, it is a normal situation. that is no problem. i it is a normal situation. that is no problem. lam it is a normal situation. that is no problem. i am completely fine with this situation. this is something the clubs are trying to avoid soap they want to move the transfer window before the season starts. and diego costa, and we have news of an apache wants to sign him on loan when we all know he wa nts to sign him on loan when we all know he wants to go to atletico madrid? that is something that would have helped chelsea. nobody knows how will that be, having diego costa around the dressing room, around the players and the club. he doesn't strike me asa and the club. he doesn't strike me as a player who will change his life. look at coutinho, ifeel like he will get back on it, get his mind backin he will get back on it, get his mind back in the game and be good for the team. diego costa, had his heart going to madrid. i think it will have a negative affect on it would have a negative affect on it would have been better for the club to let him go. have you ever been in the
6:41 pm
situation where you have been somewhere and then wanted to go somewhere and then wanted to go somewhere else? at newcastle, there was a stage i felt my career was stalling and i wanted to go and play for spurs at the time. i played the first game of the season for newcastle against arsenal and ended up newcastle against arsenal and ended up getting sent off. whether that was a factor or not, my mind wasn't on it, i am was a factor or not, my mind wasn't on it, iam not was a factor or not, my mind wasn't on it, i am not sure. it is unsettling as a player, knowing the window is still continuing and you have an opportunity to leave whilst the premier league is continuing. i understand this new initiative, but if it has to be brought in, it has to be collectively brought in across europe. 0therwise to be collectively brought in across europe. otherwise the european clubs will come in and start poaching players from premier league teams. presumably that is why a number of the premier league clubs voted against it. pep guardiola said he was in favour of it and he hoped the european clubs caught up. but manchester united, obviously they're
6:42 pm
big rivals, their manager is in line with his club and he definitely didn't want this to happen. i expect my club to be strong enough and powerful enough for when the market closed for us. we can also close our doors. but for other english clubs, that'll be a risk. i hope it goes to the perfect situation and the perfect situation is too close for every championship and notjust is too close for every championship and not just the is too close for every championship and notjust the premier league. we will have to see what happens. let's move on to manchester city and liverpool. lunchtime kick—off tomorrow. both clubs are on the same number of points, but liverpool have had the more impressive start? yes, i would say so, but you cannot underestimate manchester city. the game against everton was phenomenal,
6:43 pm
to have a player sent off against a tea m to have a player sent off against a team of their quality, everton, to come back and get a point out of that. when you win in dramatic circumstances as they did against bournemouth, that was a special moment. but liverpool, the performance they put in against arsenal, it was special. there will be goals, there are always gold again. take a look at this... it is not often we get so excited about the table so early in the season. but just look about the table so early in the season. butjust look where arsenal are. 16. that is what you want from an arsenal perspective, what is your ta ke an arsenal perspective, what is your take about what is going on? an arsenal perspective, what is your take about what is going 0mm an arsenal perspective, what is your take about what is going on? it is a terrible start, they have had a terrible start, they have had a terrible window. the way their
6:44 pm
window went, uncertainty in the club, not getting the signings they wanted, players wanting to leave, losing players at the last minute. it has filtered down from the top, all the way onto the pitch and that is exactly what happens. best thing that happened to arsenal, the international break came, the window has closed and they can say, this is what we have got, and our season sta rts what we have got, and our season starts now. and what about delhi alley, he is in hot water. after the gesture during england's last game, he is going to have a fifa disciplinary investigation, what is your take on that? it is a shame. maybe not the best of timings to do that, but it was an internaljoke. do you think it was? absolutely, it was something between him and kyle walker. he is firing, i am sure if
6:45 pm
he did mean it at the rest, he would have directed it at the rest and he would have had to deal with the consequences them. hopefully, a fifa will seize on common sense and give him a slap on the wrist. all this talk of six—game bands, i don't want to see that and i don't think anybody who wants their best players at the world cup, want to see that either. you mightjust want at the world cup, want to see that either. you might just want to watch this next thing. tottenham have released pictures of the pitch design at their new stadium, the world's first dividing retractable football pitch. with the venue also hosting two nfl games each season, an artificial surface for american football will sit below a turf pitch for spurs matches, which will slide out in three sections. they say it'll take about 25 minutes to switch from one to the other. women's football has been hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons lately after england manager mark sampson was accused of bullying and using racist language, but today that was put to one side
6:46 pm
as the captains from every women's super league team came together at wembley for the launch of the new season. it has been just over one it has beenjust over one month since the lionesses crashed out of euro 2017 in the semifinals. in that time, an lot has happened, not least the allegations surrounding the manager, mark sampson. but forthe players, they have had to put that disappointment behind them because in two weeks, it is the start of the women's super league and the steph houghton, she says that has been easier said than done. it has been quite tough. the first few days when you get back from the tournament, it is quite hard to know what you are supposed to be doing. the first few days are really hard to take. think about it logically, i am really proud about what we achieved. to reach a semifinalfor the
6:47 pm
proud about what we achieved. to reach a semifinal for the second tournament in a row, we did everything we possibly could to be the best england team we could be and everybody worked so hard to get to the final. but on the night, it was meant to be. manchester city, wsl one champions. in the second tier, there will be new faces after totte n ha m tier, there will be new faces after tottenham hotspur were promoted. as their captain told me, their men's tea m their captain told me, their men's team is right behind them. there is a massive buzz around the whole club. because of them, we are where we are and they have supported us. we are training at the training ground three times a week, which is amazing. it is like another world. the facilities are the best we have ever had. so they're backing has helped us and part of the reason why we are where we are today. the women's super league in this country has never been so strong. there are more teams than before and a large amount of the players are training full—time. but they are hoping the
6:48 pm
fa ns full—time. but they are hoping the fans will follow them into the stadium is to watch their team play. the us open is getting to the business end with the men's semi finals this evening. can world number one rafael nadal win his third title there? 0ur tennis correspondent russell fuller is following the action at flushing meadows for us and just about managed to talk to us via skype. martin del potro beat roger federer and has a very good record against rafael nadal. he has won more matches on hard courts. they played in the semifinals at the olympic games in rio which del potro weren't ina third games in rio which del potro weren't in a third set tie—break. that is the obvious attraction on this men's semifinals day. but there is a lot of interest in the first semifinal because it is one we didn't expect to see. kevin anderson, the man with
6:49 pm
the big serve. if he can serve as well as he has done, it might be difficult. still lots coming—up on sportsday, including one of sprinting's most exciting talents, we speak live to britain's gold medal—relay hero, nethaneel mitchel—bla ke. and britain's chris froome is on course for more history making — in the vuelta a espana. andrew parsons has been elected as the new president of the international paralympic committee. the brazilian takes over from sir philip craven, who's been in charge for 16 years. so what can we expect from parsons? i asked britain's most successful female pa ralympian, dame sarah storey, exactly that. andrew parsons has been a vice
6:50 pm
president with philip craven now for a number of years. he is aware of the legacy philip is leaving behind. by the legacy philip is leaving behind. by habib builds on that and continues to push the movement forward. he has already said he has some new things he wants to work on. 0nce some new things he wants to work on. once the work on his relationship with the ioc so he will be looking to work closely with the ioc president. he will be looking to make classification more professional, looking at the challenges within that area. but i also hope he focuses on the publicity of the games and making sure all sports has equal publicity. because things like rowing, equestrian, road cycling didn't get any live tv coverage at all. classification is something we are expecting him to take a look at. could there be any danger you could be reclassified in cycling? they are looking at the whole classification system. there will be a root of every classification to see if they
6:51 pm
need to tweak what they are doing. all athletes could be open to reclassification. if they look at the lesser impaired athletes, they may need to look at whether everybody is eligible. there is a new classification code, a new professional process. mainly with classification it is looking to tighten it up. it will not be possible to misrepresent yourself in a classification test. you will be competing against people who are of the same level of impairment as you are, or as close to as possible. i think it will be a very positive step to make sure everyone, the watching public and the athletes have complete faith in the system. you are having your second baby, you are britain's most decorated paralympian, are britain's most decorated pa ralympian, what is are britain's most decorated paralympian, what is the future?|j will paralympian, what is the future?” will be getting into full training for competition as soon as the baby is born and my body is ready. looking forward to being back on the
6:52 pm
world stage next year to qualify the tokyo paralympic games which will be games number eight and try to add to my medal haul. i was faster in rio than i was in london, so i am still progressing. hopefully build on those performances and find the best version of me, as it were. turned into an athletics stadium as some of the sport's biggest names will be taking part in the great north city games. amongst those competing will be britain's long jumper greg rutherford, paralympic sprinterjonnie peacock and one of the world's most exciting young sprinters nethaneel mitchel—bla ke, who joins me live from our newcastle studio. thank you forjoining us. have you come down after the wonderful success in the relay at the world championships? most certainly. i have had a couple of races since and iam have had a couple of races since and i am enjoying it at the moment. nethaneel, the sprinters kind of
6:53 pm
rescued, what was, apart from sir mo farah, an otherwise disappointing world championships, what is the state of british sprinting? you must be feeling buoyant and confident? most certainly, i think british sprinting is reaching its pinnacle. we have some young talent which should see throughout the next couple of cycles. what are your ambitions? i want individual success as well as more relay medal. we have as well as more relay medal. we have a great group of guys and we are all young. each of us part about quartet and other athletes believe we can achieve individual success. how quick can you run? i don't set myself any limits. i want to train ha rd every myself any limits. i want to train hard every year and get better every year and see how fast i can go. this is the first time you have done the great north city games, how excited

6:55 pm
finish in madrid. the tour of britain is also coming to a conclusion, with australia's caleb ewan winning stage six, his third in the race so far as he sprinted to the line in aldeburgh. dutchman lars boom continues to head the overall standings. we're only into the second round of fixtures in rugby union's premiership but the big matches keep coming. this evening sale sharks take on newcastle, but tomorrow there'll be plenty of attention on the game at the rec, where bath take on saracens. and there's a big derby at franklin's gardens, where northampton saints take on leicester tigers. both teams are hoping to learn lessons from their opening game defeats. for the rest of the season, that has got the drivers. so that doesn't happen again and we perform every single weeks. i have got no doubt this week, the boys will be putting ina this week, the boys will be putting in a performance that we deserve as a group and the sport deserves. lapse in mental concentration,
