time for sportsday. hello and welcome to sportsday, with karthi gna nasegaram and gavin ramjaun. the headlines this evening. back with a bang. jose mourinho makes an instant impact at spurs. it is not about me, it is about the players and it is about the club. liverpool survive another var scare — but continue their formidable season with another win. and the pressure piles on unai emery — after a poor arsenal display against southampton. also coming up in the programme. british hopes rest with kyle edmund and dan evans, as britain take on spain in the davis cup semi—finals. and england toil in new zealand, they struggle with the ball as the kiwis turn the screw in the first test.
lots to come on sportsday tonight — we'll be keeping an eye on great britain at the davis cup in madrid, and it's been a really busy day but we start with the premier league, and jose mourinho‘s first game in charge of tottenham. just a couple of weeks ago he was sitting in a television studio watching liverpool beat manchester city, today he was in the dugout at the london stadium watching his new side beat west ham, joe wilson reports. mourinho is world—famous, and much love that spurs, so what is he got?
give it 35 minutes. roberto, west ham's goalkeeper was just a witness. just what tottenham needed, and mourinho had it. tottenham battling for the ball, tearing forwards, mourinho picked lucas for this game and there he was. energy, teamwork, when harry kane headed in the third, that was the game. but spurs tired and conceded two late goals as west ham revived themselves, too late to change the fate of the match but enough to show the spurs manager his challengers. so would he smile? just about. remember, he is humble. challengers. so would he smile? just about. remember, he is humblem challengers. so would he smile? just about. remember, he is humble. it is not about me, it is about the players and the club. very important, too long without a victory. i will hate if somebody
says that mourinho made an impact, i did not make an impact, ijust helped them a little bit to win this match. get the people mourinho really needs to win over or his players so from what we saw, so far so players so from what we saw, so far so good. mourinho off to the best possible start at spurs and there's been drama across all the other games in the premier league today. rhia chohan has reaction from that tottenham game, and the rest of the matches for us. rhia. well, we started the day with these headlines. jose mourinho's reported bid to "fire up dele alli" and we saw the impact that the new spurs boss could potentially have on players like dele, who really stepped up in that number ten role — helping set up the first two goals. and interestingly, he's the same age that frank lampard was when mourinho arrived at chelsea... and we saw how he flourished.
liverpool maintained their eight—point lead at the top of the premier league with a victory over crystal palace. but it wasn't without some var controversy. palace defenderjames tomkins had a goal ruled out in the first half afterjordan ayew was adjudged to have fouled deyan lovren. sadio mane put liverpool in the lead after the break, with this tenth goal of the season. and it looked as if wilfred zaha had rescued a point for palace when he equalised, but roberto firminho clinched a late winner. liverpool's victory means they've now gone 30 games unbeaten in the premier league. so, the pressure remains on manchester city, who played chelsea at the etihad tonight.
nick parrot was watching. to win titles, you need to perform under pressure and with liverpool winning earlier, it was definitely on manchester city. josie came to the every up trying to avenge a defeat from the last visit and extend their league away from home. think them off to the perfect start. having played for city manager frank lampard should having played for city manager frank lampa rd should have having played for city manager frank lampard should have known it was too soon to celebrate. the champions feelings this season have been in defence, not an attack and they soon brought them level. but i would not be enough, this was a must win in city were all in, showing chelsea they had much to work on and defence as well. it could have been three before half—time, fortunate that sergio could only spare his blushes. rahim sterling put the icing on the
ca ke rahim sterling put the icing on the cake into the video assistant referee and ruled it out by the tiniest of margins. on this occasion, did not matter. chelsea still have a way to go before challenging for titles but manchester city are not going anywhere, not just yet. the pressure on arsenal manager unai emery increases — his slide slipped to seventh after a draw against southampton. emery‘s side were booed off at the final whistle. danny ings‘ early goal put southampton in front... they didn't keep that for long, alexandre lacazette turned in a close—range equaliser. arsenal fell behind for a second time in the second half — but not even lacazette's second goal of the day could raise spirits at the emirates. the result leave the gunners nine points worse off than they were at this stage last term. we, asa we, as a team and as a player, we
will try to continue our work and we have to find a solution together and i think we have to stay strong. we know that we have to carry on and yeah, that's it. and we can add marco silva to the list of managers under scrutiny as everton lost to norwich city. norwich moved off the bottom of the premier league and ended a run of seven games without a win at goodison park. the 2—0 defeat sees everton drop to 15th place. marco silva has lost all four of his premier league home games against sides starting the day bottom of the table elsewhere in the premier league today. jamie vardy‘s scoring run continued as leicester got their fifth consecutive premier league win away at brighton — they stay in second for the time being. wolves moved ahead of arsenal into fifth with a 2—1 win over bournemouth. and burnley are just behind wolves now in sixth thanks to a 3—0 win
at watford who sink back to the bottom of the table... so times aren't not great times for them. back to you guys still to come on sportsday. saracens put their domestic woes behind them, as they turn on the style on a busy day of european rugby. and we'll head to the middle east, where it's fleetwood against rahm in the race to dubai. great britain won the davis cup title in 2015 and they are now one match away from reaching teh finals again after kyle edmund won the first rubber of their semi final against spain. edmund who hasn't had a great year by his standards, was on great form as he beat felicaino lopez in straight sets in madrid. craig templeton reports. as you get to the senior final stage of the tournament, the price comes into sharper focus,
of the tournament, the price comes into sharperfocus, some of the tournament, the price comes into sharper focus, some of the call admin to set all week meaning his opponent, feliciano lopez was late call up opponent, feliciano lopez was late callup and it opponent, feliciano lopez was late call up and it could have affected the rhythm but it didn't. in the opening game, the first service game, admin produced at this, the earliest of breaks. a perfect start. he has been thriving in the bigger location and she could get near him. finishing the subway started it, with an ace. the second set whitmore with an ace. the second set whitmore with serve but still time for the art admin firework. —— edmund. with serve but still time for the art adminfirework. —— edmund. no break point may be at the tie—break. edmund has struggled with them all season, not this week over to dan eva ns. early stages in the second rubber
as the british number one dan evans is taking on the world number one rafael nadal. it's currently on serve in the first set. this new format means british fans were suddenly left wanting tickets to today's semi finals once great britian had won their quarter final yesterday. the lawn tennis association, with a little help from andy and jamie murray, put the word out on social media that they would give away free tickets to anyone that could get to madrid in time for today's semi final. that plan went down well with british tennis fans we knew they were through to the semifinals and we said, let's go. so, within the space of an hour, we had booked flights, we have booked hotels and we, this morning, we were ona hotels and we, this morning, we were on a flight from edinburgh to madrid and here we are. i've been living in madrid for the past four years and my girlfriend is from here and they originally lived in edinburgh and it
this morning, i saw on the bbc app that there was a free giveaway, i sent an e—mail and i am here. that there was a free giveaway, i sent an e-mail and i am here. just arrived yesterday and got an e—mail from my doctor saying that they're giving free tickets away and the day of this cup, seeing the team playing glasco, watch them play birmingham and so, it was like icing on the cake, really. you can listen to the commentary life to see what is happening between the two. it's been a really busy day of european rugby — no fewer than seven ties being played in the champions cup and it provided saracens with some welcome relief from their domestic woes. they are the defending champions, and today they played their first game since deciding not to appeal against a massive premiership points deduction and record fine. they did though take out at least some of their frustration on ospreys, as paul frostick reports. webex services are continuing to
deal one the biggest scandals in clu b deal one the biggest scandals in club rugby history. —— saracens. in defence of the champions cup last week. not surprising, it was a quieter than usual park is a returning england world cup player, jack singleton bundled overfor the first try. another inkling player assisted the second try, elliott daly on his debut for saracens the pair linked to daly on his debut for saracens the pairlinked to begin daly on his debut for saracens the pair linked to begin after the break for their sites fourth try and lay down something of a marker. have a dozen scores by the end and more world cup stars lined up on the bench, problems of the pitch, but on at the figures mightjust add up yet. 44—3 the final score. let's take a look at some of the other hightlights from the european champions cup.. exeter chiefs put some distance between themselves and their rivals at the top of their pool this
afternoon, with a 3a—18 win over glasgow warriors. winger tom o'flaherty scored the pick of the tries to put exeter top of pool 2 after the first two rounds. dan biggar kicked a penalty in the 85th minute to seal a bonus—point victory for northampton against benetton. saints scored 17 second—half points with tries by ollie sleightholme and a second for tom collins. northampton winning by 35 points to 32. northampton are still behind leinster in pooli after the irish side also got their second win of the season. max deegan with the only try leinster the french league leaders lyon, max deegan with the only try of the match for leinster. details of all the other days results on the bbc sport website. let's bring you up to date with the rest of today's football news outside of the premier league, gavin. let's start in scotland, where celtic are now three points ahead of rangers at the top of the premiership. odsonne eduarde and captain scott brown both on the scoresheet, whistjames forrest got 2 in a 4—0 win over livingstone. hibs, kilmarnock and st mirren also won today.
west brom remain top of the championship. thanks to a 2—1 win over sheffield wedesday. but leeds are breathing down their necks. they beat luton, thanks to a late own goal, to move into second. stoke's mini revival under new boss michael o'neill continued as they beat wigan. neil harris survived a scare in his first game in charge of cardiff city as they came from 2 goals down, to draw 2 all with charlton athletic. the bluebirds missed a penalty early in the second half but a goal from nathaniel mendez—laing and subsitute lee tomlin's equaliser made the difference. and in spain, we thought there might have been huge upset, when leganes went into half time, with the lead against la liga champions barcelona. but it wasn't to be as barca came back to maintain their place at the top of the table. luis suarez equalised not long into the second half... then this scrappy late winner from arturo vidal sealed the points for barcelona. 2—1 the score,
real madrid can go level with them later, when they take on real sociedad. and don't forget there's live football on the bbc tonight. we've got the final of the copa libatadores on bbc two. brazilian side flamengo face holders river plate from argentina. it's effectively the champions league final for south america, on the bbc sport website, and app — we have a selection of the best goals scored by both in this year's tournament. it's been complicated build up to the final — as adam wild reports. reaching the final can patients, just ask the brazilian side in 1981 it was their last victory. 10,000 strong party making the team wait just a little longer. those opponents, not quite such scenes, this is them leaving buenos ares the reigning champions in the fence they did turn out had seen it all before.
but as both sides remarkable journey nears its end, the final destination has not always been quite so clear. for the second year in a row, the final has travelled. last years clashes between fans of river plate and juniors meant the second leg of the final was played in madrid. this year, political unrest in chile has forced the final itself to make the journey to peru. but now here it is, south america's biggest club game breaking away from tradition and this year, a single one—off match will decide the destination of the trophy. personally, i prefera single final. you will make it is fairer, whoever is the best strategy it is more exciting if it becomes a big event, fans enjoy the moment more. looking for the first victory in the generation with the plate far
more accustomed to such success, still they are fully aware of the task ahead. i believe you're facing a very complicated rifle, theory team that plays well that push us to score like we do and looks to win. this is the kind of match we have to be very focused to stop who makes fewer mistakes will win the game. this is the kind of match that we like and are used to. after the weight, the certainty of the final is nearly here. it is referred to as a unique final and given the circumstances, it is hard to argue. for england with the world cup win, the ashes defeat and they've now got a battle on their hands to stay in the first test against new zealand. england struggled on day three in mount maunganui, as the hosts put on a stellar performance to take the lead. john watson reports.
the test became this, it could've been different, they made just 31 when this happened. yes, look again. that was ben stokes dropping the catch. sadly, it seemed even more significant as the day wore on. because even though they had success, henry nichols for a1, that represented 50% of the wickets england took all day. watling settled down into a rhythm a patient scoring which england tried in vain to disrupt and with him, the big man. the grand home, the partnership amassed over 100 runs. there was not a tactic england employed that brought them any joy. it took some scintillating fielding to get rid of this catch from a man playing in his first match. don's catch deserves a second look, he will have runs to make an england's second inning. because his performance took them into the
league. it troubled england this weekend, but two wickets in one day is not the team they need to be in any circumstance. new zealand's stayed all day logging isa new zealand's stayed all day logging is a terrific response because they we re is a terrific response because they were really under pressure and i think at the end of day two, they we re think at the end of day two, they were well on the driving seat. a new zoom in responded with real character and fight and determination i was led by an excellent score. let's run through some of today's other sports news headlines, and... in one of the most hotly anticipated showdowns in recent memory cyrname got the better of previously unbeaten altior, to win the christy 1965 chase at ascot. the 5—2 second favourite, ridden by harry cobden and trained by paul nicholls, led the two and three quarter mile
race from start to finish. alexander sims lead from pole to the chequered flag in saudi arabia to claim his first victory in formula e. the briton held off bmw team mate maximilian gunther and now leads the drivers‘ championship. the next round is in chile in january. england's women scored 10 tries as they crushed italy 60—3 in bedford to complete a clean sweep of victories from their autumn internationals. world player of the year emily scarratt scored a second half try. england finish the year with 12 wins from 13 games and extend their run of victories at home to 17. tommy fleetwood still has a chance to win his second race to dubai title — but his ryder cup team—matejon rahm has thrown a spanner in the works. there are various ways in which both can be named europe's best golfer at the season—ending tour championship. rahm is currently ahead, but as our golf correspondent iain carter explains, fleetwood is certainly still in contention.
he has a lot of work to do. 71 today, one under par, so four shots off the lead here and he really needs to win becausejon rahm has gotten needs to win becausejon rahm has gotte n into needs to win becausejon rahm has gotten into the share with michael lorenzo, 15 under par that means thatjon rahm is the favourite to win the season in the race to dubai, but fleetwood is in the mix, just four shots behind, fourth place in the s to overcome rory mcilroy. lorenzo, the biggest threat undoubtedly is jon rahm, lorenzo, the biggest threat undoubtedly isjon rahm, his team—mate. he cannot win the race to dubai because he did not play again till you make enough counting events and everything points to, he bounced back after his second round and 7a with a really superb 65 today, it is
taking him into third placejust a couple of shots off the lead, so rory mcilroy is a big threat, michael lorenzo and in the share of the lead withjon rahm, it is going to build up to a very exciting climax for the european tour season. i think it isjust an extra challenge, that is all. so far, i feel i get done a greatjob of it and i've been lucky enough they been doing this for three years in a row now, come to this event i don't like to keep the tracker to —— and i would like to keep record going. it's a big night for british fighter callum smith, as he defends his wba super middleweight title in front of his home crowd in liverpool. he's the heavy favourite to beat londonerjohn ryder, and to warm up for the fight — he took on our 12 second challenge. hello, this is the super heavyweight
from the report, and this is my 12 second challenge. one punch bag, how many times can you hit it? and none of this tiptop stuff, let your hands go properly. it's tiring, that is. just looking ata time it's tiring, that is. just looking at a time you out. and rafael nadal is doing very well in the semifinals against great britain, taken the first set from dan evans, 6—4, before that he took the first winning that match against lopez, so
if rafael nadal wins this, he could go all the way down to doubles again. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more sport throughout the evening. hello, more rain today in places they really did not needed. this is where it has been falling in the past few hours. i have ran across england and wales will start to pewter out and starts to turn heavier the customer england and scotland and we keep the warnings as we go through the overnight period and also to ease the way from england and into an eastern scotland it will become dry overnight with the legacy of low cloud, patchy fog and parts of east anglia in southeast england, dense
patches of fog from 48 celsius, the overnight low, tomorrow, brief and wea k overnight low, tomorrow, brief and weak rich this computing strive for the next area of low pressure which is pushing in from the southwest and we get to a grey, murky start with mixing health fog and maybe a few bright and sunny spells for eastern and southern counties but generally it isa and southern counties but generally it is a drier powder your day and it started in the nine to 12 celsius maybe a touch higher if you get some sunny spells across eastern and southern counties, through tomorrow evening or next area of low pressure of rain into southwest england and wales, the winds will be strengthened as well gusting to 30 or a0 mph in texas we northeast ridge between wales as a going to monday, so it may start dry in northern england and scotland but the real structure rights to the day and driving to
northern ireland as well. the ring heaviest across england and wales the big patcher costs, to northern ireland and may be dried to the far north of scotland and again for most, it is a fairly mild day ten to 13 celsius in one area of low pressure moving into the north sea and the next one arrives as a go to to stay, this is the remnants of what was tropical storm sebastian and it will strengthen the winds as well, so really quite a wet and windy day across southwest england and wales and making slow progress northeast words and the timing of this may well change. but at the stage on tuesday, many different northern ireland and scotland, save for a few showers down the eastern coast but turning progressively wet and windy on the southwest. in former showers and eventually things will start to turn drier to the end of next week but also quite cold again. that is all for me, goodbye.
this is bbc news, i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 8pm: the health secretary says he'll block any attempts by gps to have home visits removed from their contracts. it isn't going to wash, it isn't going to happen. they say they want to negotiate to end home visits, but of course gps need to do home visits. the conservaitves and lib dems attackjeremy corbyn, for saying he'll stay ‘neutral‘ in any future brexit referendum. but the labour leader says it's the right thing to do. i think being an honest broker and listening to everyone is actually a sign of strength and a sign of maturity. the authorities in hong kong threaten to suspend voting in tomorrow's local elections — in case of serious disruption at polling stations. back on track — the model display destroyed
