on home soil for the first time at a sold out wembley stadium? another medal for great britain on day three of the world para—athletics championships in dubai. also coming up in the programme: the
kiwis inflict a third tour defeat on the great britain rugby league lions in christchurch. and saracens silence the gloucester fans with victory at kingsholm and move second in the premiership. good evening, welcome to tonight's programme. we start with the premier league where chelsea's 2—0 win over crystal palace has moved them above manchester city and into second in the table. it was their sixth league win in a row, the first time they've done that since they won the title.
they move within five points of leaders liverpool who play city tomorrow. paul frostick was watching. five premier league wins in a row for chelsea left them in good shape heading into this fixture with crystal palace. and after an incredible
midweek champions league comeback, they were full of confidence. despite a first half full of attacking threat, it would prove to be a goalless one. chelsea began the second half on a front foot again and they got their breakthrough. the palace defence finally unlocked tammy abraham finishing the move. with only a single goal between the sides, crystal palace upped their efforts and started to trouble the chelsea backline. but as the game approached the final stages, christian pulisic got the second. to see them leapfrog manchester city in the table. we certainly deserved to win
the game and the first half, if it was frustrating it was because we had chances but not enough clear ones. we let the tempo dropped slightly through the half. as soon as we picked it up in the second half then i thought we got our deserve to win with a clean sheet. it was one of those strange games where you are disappointed after every defeat, it doesn't matter if you're playing the top teams or a team in another division, every defeat is a real blow to you but there are times when you have to ask what more could i have have expected the team to do and what could ask have expected the team to do and what could they have done differently. here to wrap up the rest of today's premier league action is austin halewood. and tottenham's run without a premier league win continues? that's right tottenham continuing to struggle this season. a big result in europe in midweek but once again they couldn't back it up next time out, they were held to a 1—1 draw at home to sheffield united.
before the game, tottenham were five places below the visitors and they looked every bit of it in the first half. sheffield united the much better team. lyss moussett with their best chance of a number of them. but with the quality tottenham have, if you don't take your chances. they can make you pay and son heung—min did just that. his 3rd goal in 4 days gave spurs the lead. however, sheffield united hit straight back. david mcgoldrick with the tap in, at the back post, until, after a three minute check, it was ruled out for offside by var. literally, half a toe over the line, in the build up, denied sheffield united the goal. you'll have to see it back on match of the day later to believe how close it was. but luckily for the blood pressure of plenty of sheffield fans, they got a goal back through george baldock.
and they deserved a point whereas tottenham, they were lucky to get that. they're without a win since september now in the league, but what a job this man is doing for them. manager chris wilder and his team still undefeated on the road in the premier league. still undefeated on the road understand, if it is off: offside. i understand, if it is offside it is offside. my point is the reset on it. of course, it is a spectator sport and a fast free—flowing game and when incidents like this happen it isa and when incidents like this happen it is a disappointment. now to saint mary's where there was a huge game at the bottom of the table between southampton and everton. and a huge game for these two. lots of pressure on both managers, well it was everton who came out on top with a vital win on the road for them. it was southampton‘s first game back at st mary's since that nine goal horror show against leicester and the fans were ready
to back their team, with scarves on every seat but they were terrible in the fist half. no shots and a goal behind after tom davies scored for everton. well sofian boufal came on at the break and changed the game for southampton he set up an equaliser for danny ings to score and bring his team level but they couldn't hold on. richarlasson with the winner in the second half for everton. and those scarfs i showed you a moment ago. well hundreds of them were tossed onto the pitch at full time. so a first win on the road this season for everton and marco silva. but another hugley disappointing result for southampton and boss ralph hassenhutl. you have to think he's not got long to turn things around now. the players try and fight and try to win games. but in a moment we didn't
do enough. it has clearly taken its toll on the fans but do you feel that you have the strength and the stamina to turn it around?” that you have the strength and the stamina to turn it around? i have two, it is myjob and i think to be strong at the moment is why i am here and i try to invest everything and this is all we can do. try to work hard and try to get better and i think we can play. newcastle weathered the storm of some touch early fixtures and they contiued their good run with a 2—1 win over bournemouth at saint james's park when harry wilson scored the opener for the visitors early on and captainjamal laceslles went off for newcastle, it looked like it might not be their day, but they turned it on from that point. deandre yedlin with the equaliser before ciaran clarke got the winner for newcastle. so back—to—back wins for the first time in the league this season for newcastle. that's 3 wins from
their last 5 as well. after a touch start to life at st james's park, could the manager be starting to win the fans over? we know how crucial back—to—back wins are in the premier league so it was vitally important, especially in the first 20 minutes when bournemouth caused all sorts of problems and they got off to a great set piece. we are disappointed but sometimes you have to think about where that came from, the retaining ground obviously. overall, the longer on it went i thought there was only going to be one winner. and finally a big turn—around of form for burnley today. after threee straight defeats they thrashed west ham 3—0 at turf moore. ashley barnes scored the first before chris wood made it 2. just moments before socring that, he'd actually had a goal ruled out by var, of course. so he decided to make some fun of the process with his celebration.
but there was no doubt about that one. before an own goal from keeper roberto jiminez sealed the three points for burnley. as for west ham they're without a win in six league games now. the late game between leicester and arsenal into the second half at the king power. that is still 0—0. in the top half it's burnely who are the big movers into ninth... but it's the bottom today that makes interesting reading... spurs down in 12th. level on points with everton. west ham nowjust 5 clear of the bottom three. and oouthampton still just 8 points in 19th. you feel somethings got to change quickly at saint mary's, or their could be a shake—up on the way.
i can't help but think that those fa ns i can't help but think that those fans might regret throwing their scarves away, it is freezing out there. next to the championship. michael o'neill made the perfect start to life as stoke city manager as they moved off the bottom of the championship with a 4—2 victory over barnsley. meanwhile nottingham forest are up to fourth after beating local rivals derby i—o. lewis grabban pouncing on a mistake to get the only goal in a fiery game at the city ground. elsewhere in the championship leaders west brom were 1—0 winners at hull, second place preston beat huddersfield 3—1, there were also wins for leeds and fulham whilst swansea scored a 94th minute equaliser in a 2 all draw at sheffield wednesday. in the scottish premiership managerless hearts claimed their first home win in seven months beating st mirren 5—2. hamilton academical held on for over an hour with 10 men to claim a point at kilmarnock. a three one win at ross county takes aberdeen upto 3rd in the table. and hibs, who are also managerless, hammered stjohnston 4—1.
christian doidge with a hat—trick. celtic and rangers both play tomorrow. it's fa cup first round weekend and you can follow all the action on the bbc. there was drama between walsall and darlington this afternoon. four goals and two red cards as the away side equalised with the last kick of the game. this is the 97th minute of play, a free—kick from far out but waiting in the box was jarrett rivers who put the ball in the net, causing wild celebrations as some fans ran on to the pitch. that was after walsall had gone 2—1 ahead in the 89th minute. both sides had a player sent off. highlights and goals from all ties will be shown on the bbc sport website and app and there is live text commentary on the bbc sport website. it's a 90,000 sell out at wembley tonight where england's women are taking on germany in a friendly. the two time world champions dominated the opening play, which led to an unmarked alexandra popp putting the germans ahead afterjust 9 minutes.
england's first proper chance came 30 minutes later with a penalty from nikita paris. the german keeper denying her an equaliserjust before half time the equaliser finally came, ellen white doing what she does best. these are live pictures from wembley, a very wet night at the minute, you can watch this live on bbc two. this could make history for a couple of reasons. england have never beaten germany on home soil. you can watch for yourself on bbc two and on bbc sport website. let's have a quick look at some of the other stories around today. england's tyrell hatton shot a seven—under—par 65 to move into contention for tomorrow's final
round of the turkish open. hatton‘s in a group on 15 under that trail austria's outright leader matthias schwab by three shots. the harry cobden—ridden give me a copper, the 5—1 co—favourite,held off soupy soups to win the big race of the day which was the badger beers trophy at wincanton. he's part—owned by former manchester united manager sir alex ferguson. youtube stars k—s—i and logan paul go head to head in their boxing re—match in la tonight. the pair have an online audience of a0 million who follow them. in their first amateur fight in manchester last year, it's thought k.s.i. earned more than 100 million us dollars. it's day three of the world pa ra—athletics championships in dubai where there's been another medalfor great britain with olivia breen taking bronze in the t38 long jump. the 23—year—old from wales, who won the title in london two years ago, recorded a bestjump of 4.93 metres.
our reporter kate grey is there. great britain have won their third medal of these championships thanks to olivia breen taking bronze in the teeth 38 long jump. she was the defending champion coming into this event but her competition proved to... olivia did itjust short of her personal best and in true style she was in good spirits after the event. i am really happy full stop obviously i am over the moon, i have come home with a medal, i couldn't ask for any more. there were no other medals for great britain this evening but there have been an outstanding performance from a world perspective with seven world records being broken across track and field events. lisa adam broke the world
record and won the shot put. she is interesting because she encouraged —— her sister encouraged her to get into the sport and has since been her coach, clearly and very experienced hands and lisa has come to this event, broke in the world record, smashed her competition and will certainly be one to watch in tokyo next year. a lovely story to see unfold here and her sister valerie has been here supporting her as well. with regards to tomorrow, on day for great britain have lots of athletes in action with a world champion going in the shot put and a british head—to—head in the t34100 metres. it will certainly be one to watch. still to come on sportsday:
we meet the seven—year—old golfer who's already being nicknamed "tiger". on to rugby league and great britain's miserable tour continued this morning after losing 23—8 in their second test against new zealand in christchurch. that makes it three defeats in a row, a disappointing result for the lions' on their return after a 12 year absence. adam wild reports. for great britain's rugby league lions, the writing was on the wall. the task ahead now loud, clear and yelled out in black and white. with two defeats from two on this tour, there were some reputations to restore, but here, once again, struggling to get to grips with new zealand. britain under pressure from the start, the kiwis rarely looked troubled. shaunjohnson going over with barely a finger laid on him. britain bruised, bloodied and battered and they
had not yet reached half—time. after 12 years away, so much more had been expected from this british side but it was new zealand taking their chances. in the case of ken maumalo, doing so quite brilliantly. josh hodgson did eventually find a way through for great britain but the damage had been done. yet another defeat. this team, this tour, looking ever more troubled. i will start was a right and then a few early errors. the kiwis played well, they put a lot of pressure on us well, they put a lot of pressure on us and we saw the stats at half—time and it was a pretty tough one. we we re and it was a pretty tough one. we were sapped of energy but to us, we came out in the second half and there was plenty of fight in us but nonetheless, gutted mate.
there was plenty of fight in us but nonetheless, gutted matem there was plenty of fight in us but nonetheless, gutted mate. it is fair to say it has been a pretty disappointing tour so far. with more here's our rugby league correspondent dave woods who was watching in christchurch. they were beaten fairly easily and they failed to create too many chances. what did you make of that performance? i thought there were too many unforced errors. i think the disappointing part of that for me was that we didn't create too many chances and set the light on fire in the opposition half and with all of those things it wasn't a great kicking game. i thought we took a step backwards was from what we showed last week. should we pay tribute to the kiwis because they have a lot of great players? those three guys were exceptional and they had some great defence. as brian has alluded to, i don't think the
british halves... credit to the kiwis, they defended exceptionally well, they built some pressure and they kept it up in the second half. everybody got excited when the great britain concept came around, has that been a success? i think it dampened it when it came so don't think we should throw the baby out with the bath water. we need to think about it clearly and concisely and making a decision with that but i think it is still a concept to go with. papa new guinea next week will be an adventure. we watch them before tonight text match and there except good against fiji. they will grow as they play at home so i'm really looking forward to it. the lights have gone out here in christchurch and they have gone out for great britain as well.
a better result for england women's rugby league side who have won the first test of their tour to papua new guinea. emily rudge scored an england women's record four tries to help her side to a 2k points to 10 win in goroka. the sides meet again for a 2nd and final test in port moresby next saturday. in rugby union, saracen's ended a dramatic week with a 21—12 win at gloucester to move up to second in the english premiership. the champions, who were handed a 35 point deduction and 5 million pound fine for salary cap breaches in the week, overcame the boos of the home supporters to get a comfortable win. patrick geary was watching. saracens could handle the saturday booze but tuesday that will linger longer. found guilty of breaching the salary cap, they are paying with points, pounds and endless taunting. until the appeal, they have rugby to distract them. going back to what
they know, smashing glass the's door ajar, tomkins scored. tom marshall opted for a bit of football, followed by its diving, a try. saracens also know the value of the route. it was kicked by manu vunipola. using a collective spirit, they call the wolf pack which looks more like a herd of wildebeest when it is doing this. ben got the ball down. then they locked the door. la to gloucester try proved purely academic. for some, to gloucester try proved purely academic. forsome, saracens is to gloucester try proved purely academic. for some, saracens is a cheat and this might be the week that everything changes except for one thing, the results. elsewhere bath beat top of the table northampton 22 points to 13. and harlequins were beaten at home by worcester 19—14. in the pro14 glasgow warriors claimed a second straight bonus—point win, beating zebre by 31 ponts to 7.
george horne scored two of his sides tries as warriors comprehensively won in italy. they had already scored four times before zebre had a man sent off for a high challenge. the italian side remain bottom of the table, with only two points from their first six fixtures. elsewhere ospreys lost at home to southern kings. two games are under way — cardiff blues cheetahs is currently 30—17 and ulster munster is 22—16scarletts play bennetton treviso at 7:35. england's women began their autumn internationals with an impressive win over france, their first victory on french soil for seven years. they had to come from behind, but eventually found their form. sarah hunter crashing over for the second time to give the roses the lead going into the second half. world player of the year emily scarratt confirmed the victory with a penalty kick now, he only started competing in golf tournaments just over a year
ago but simthandile tshabalala has already won over 20 trophies. oh and he's just 7 years old. the youngster from johannesburg has been flying the flag for south africa as he acquired the global ranking 01:14 in his age category and earned himself the nickname "sim tiger." our colleagues at bbc africa have been to meet him. my my name is simthandile tshabalala, i am seven years old. i play golf and i want to become the best in the world. so, i have played 12 times andi world. so, i have played 12 times and i have won eight times. champion, champion, champion, champion... when i am about to pay i feel very excited but you don't want to get too excited so then you will miss out. i am excited to play and
then when i get onto the course i have to focus. get my game right and have to focus. get my game right and have fun. you have to practice, practice, practice because you have to be different from the others. that is how you win tournaments. you have to practice in the morning and the afternoon. this is one i won in england and i am very proud of this one. i came in the top five in 2019. so, my dad tried me on different sports, tennis, swimming, cricket, soccer and then there was golf so i decided that with golf i had more talent. i like golf because it gives you opportunities to go around the world and learn new tricks and to learn how to swing the club. i also like golf because my dad goes beside me and i'm very happy that he teaches me. this is my favourite
trophy. this is because i won in an australian open top five. when i'm not playing golf i relax and i like playing with my friends and i like to play games. it will be cool one day if i have my own game made about me. i would day if i have my own game made about me. iwould really day if i have my own game made about me. i would really appreciate and like that. i want to be very successful and i want to win the masters, the pga tours, the majors and the british opens and all those. i would like to inspire other kids and then they can do what i do playing golf and enjoy the game and have fun. i love how far ahead he is thinking that he is already planning his own computer game, let alone the trophies. just before we leave you, we thought you might want to have a look at this.
and just before we leave you, we might think that all footballers are pampered these days, but here is sunderland goalkeeper jon mclaughlin having to double up as the ball boy against gillingham in the fa cup as he had to retrieve the ball from an empty stand behind the goal. just think of all the fitness he'll get running up and down those stairs. i'm not sure that he wasn'tjust trying to run away, he had an absolute howler in that game i think he was just trying to run away. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more at half past seven. turning cold and frosty again tonight over northern england and scotla nd tonight over northern england and scotland and mainly clear skies, northern ireland as well when that raincoat away. it has been so very wet but this is where the wet weather is sticking around into the night across the southern half of england into wales. intensity of the
rain easing but still some hill snow mixing in that. with the areas cloud associated with that some fog patches too. temperature is not going down as far as they will be further north. let's have a look at how remembrance sunday is shaping up. they could be some cloud and patchy rain is early on but then could be turning brighter and drier. chance of a shower around eastern england and scotland but most places will have a dry day tomorrow. a good deal of sunshine around clouding overin deal of sunshine around clouding over in northern ireland ahead of this next weather system which will turn things wetter into the evening was not still technically on the chilly side but when you are exchanging today's rain or snow then it will feel a bit warmer.
