hello there — and welcome along to sportsday this saturday. the premier league is back, after the two week international break. and didn't itjust deliver — some stunning matches, which we'll get to in a moment. but manchester city are still a point clear at the top — after a 2—0 win against burnley at turf moor. it was a comfortable return from the break for pep guardiola's side — kevin de bruyne�*s strike gave them the lead after just five minutes. ilkay gundogan added another twenty minutes later against a struggling burnley side that only registered one shot on target. what they have done in the past does not mean it will happen this time, not mean it will happen this time, no one knows, but it was nice, we had to play with a lot of pressure, because if we lose we are out. as
simple as that. so do whatever you want, but we are not going to win and every game is going to be like this. are games where you want to make 2a points, otherwise, we will not be champions. well before that — liverpool had moved above city — and gone top of the table, after beating watford 2—0 at anfield. it's the first time that's happened since october, with the title race really ramping up now, ahead of a huge clash between city and liverpool in the league next week. before the game it felt like a parade. at anfield the passion always present. beneath the banners, always present. beneath the banners, a belief that this may be an extraordinary year. liverpool's potential quadruple, a stark counterpoint to the worry of watford, the scale of their ambition no greater than avoiding relegation and to have a chance they need to take chances like this. that difference in fortunes laid bare

like this and the early kick—off, it is really tricky, it is tricky. all teams have the same problems, but also after the international break, it was not the best game of the season. it was all fine, very controlled and that is what we wanted. elsewhere, christian eriksen�*s remarkable return to football keeps getting better and better — as brentford caused a huge shock at stamford bridge. he scored his first goalfor the club — as brentford ran out a—i winners. antonio rudiger had given chelsea the lead — before brentford scored three times in ten minutes. eriksen�*s goal coming inbetween two strikes from vitaly janelt. yoane wissa scored brentford's fourth late on to complete a memorable afternoon for thomas frank's side. sometimes you need some key players could lift the other players both by playing good, but alsojust could lift the other players both by playing good, but also just pressing and christian does that. he is a very good player and we are pleased that mac are pleased to have him playing for us. i said that if we could win here it would be the
biggest result of the season and it definitely is. but the character, the mentality in these players, very impressive. in the day's other games — wolves boosted their hopes of playing in europe next season by beating aston villa to move up to seventh. brighton ended a run of six straight league defeats, with a draw to bottom side norwich. and leeds and southampton drew i—all... into the second half, of the late game — manchester united home to leicester... it is currently goalless in that match. five games in the scottish premiership today ahead of tomorrow's old firm derby. motherwell beat st mirren a—2 to put the pressure on the top four. the only other win of the day — came from stjohnstone, who beat livingston. in the championship, leaders fulham have moved another step closer to a return to the premier league. they beat queens park rangers 2—0 to stay 8 points clear at the top. nottingham forest have continued their charge towards to the playoffs. brennanjohnson scored twice to put them 3—0 up against blackpool before half time. before sam surridge added
a fourth late on to seal the win for forest — blackpool did score moments later — but it was too little, too late. in the women's super league manchester city are within touching distance of the champions league places after beating west ham. it finished 2—0 in east london with georgia stanway scoring the opening goal after eight minutes. khadija shaw's header then sealed the three points in the second half. it means city are still in fifth but seperated from fourth—placed manchester united only by goal difference. gareth southgate hopes the final round of premier league fixtures before the start of the world cup in qatar, won't hinder preparations for their opener against iran. the last set of league fixtures takes place the weekend of the 12th and 13th of november which is a little over a week before that first game. he also spoke to the bbc�*s football correspondentjohn murray about human rights issues in qatar and the possibility of playing either wales or scotland in the group stage. those games are unique. the players
obviously know each other so well, they have played against each other all the time, so there is a familiarity that takes any fear away from whoever the opposition is and of course the expectation is high for england and the desire to beat england is, frankly, high for anyone who ever plays us. that is something that i think some of our players had not experienced before last summer, they will all be aware of that, and it is definitely a complicated fixture. ~ . , it is definitely a complicated fixture. ~ ., , ,. ., fixture. what is the schedule going to be and also. _ fixture. what is the schedule going to be and also, i— fixture. what is the schedule going to be and also, i think, _ fixture. what is the schedule going to be and also, i think, can the - to be and also, i think, can the premier league do anything to help you prepare? irate premier league do anything to help you prepare?— you prepare? we believe the final su uad will you prepare? we believe the final squad will have _ you prepare? we believe the final squad will have to _ you prepare? we believe the final squad will have to go _ you prepare? we believe the final squad will have to go in _ you prepare? we believe the final squad will have to go in on - you prepare? we believe the final squad will have to go in on the . squad will have to go in on the monday after the end of the premier league season and that is a little bit more challenging, because there could be any number of medical situations that happen on the
sunday. it would be helpful if we did not have a big six clash with a higher risk of emotion and injuries and whatever else, but that is not our gift. we have had some discussions with the premier league and they understand the situation and they understand the situation and of course they want a successful england team as well, because the impact of that is huge for english football and for the attraction of the premier league as well. ﬁn football and for the attraction of the premier league as well. on the wider issue — the premier league as well. on the wider issue of— the premier league as well. on the wider issue of being _ the premier league as well. on the wider issue of being in _ the premier league as well. on the wider issue of being in qatar- the premier league as well. on the wider issue of being in qatar and i wider issue of being in qatar and the political issues, the human rights issues,... it the political issues, the human rights issues, . . ._ rights issues,... it is clear that as in any _ rights issues,... it is clear that as in any country _ rights issues,... it is clear that as in any country there - rights issues,... it is clear that as in any country there are - rights issues, . .. it is clear that i as in any country there are things that are going on that you would like to see changed, but labour conditions, health and safety, harassment or things that happen in our country, so we have to be really careful on how we pitch those ideas,
because it is easy to jump on what is happening here and forget that a lot of those things happen in our country as well and whenever we talk about these things, we end up in some sort of conflict with our hosts, because my quotes get thrown back at them and understandably they can react to quotes taken out of context. ~ ., , ., �* , ., ., ., context. what you're trying to do on the itch context. what you're trying to do on the pitch is — context. what you're trying to do on the pitch is when _ context. what you're trying to do on the pitch is when the _ context. what you're trying to do on the pitch is when the world - context. what you're trying to do on the pitch is when the world cup? is| the pitch is when the world cup? is it realistic? you have to have that vision, did i believe it was possible going into russia? well, you can dream, but the evidence of results and where we were, we were outside the top ten in our rankings and the evidence of that was not realistic, now of course, we have been to a final, so it is not so hard to visualise one more step and we know that is possible, we have been two to two terms and played seven matches and we know what it feels like. so, we have that belief
and the key is now how do you turn that into reality and find the form of the time when it is critical. gareth southgate. the second round of the women's six nations got under way with two games today. reigning champions england take on italy tomorrow. (00v)there was a record attendance for a women's rugby match in wales with more than four thousand watching in cardiff. ffion lewis scored the winning try as wales beat scotland by 2a points to 19 to win back to back opening six nations matches for the first time since 2015. france followed up their opening victory against italy with a a0 points to 5 win over ireland. the most impressive of their six tries was the opening one scored by melissande llorens. it took almost an hour for ireland to get on the scoresheet and it was fitting that eve higgins crossed the line after having a try disallowed early in the first half. england's women have the chance to make history, in the cricket world cup in the early hours of the morning when they aim to become the first senior english side to successfully defend a world cup. they take on a formidable

in an unassuming garage in the netherlands, there is an electric car with a secret. no, it is not its ultralight, ultra—strong carbon fibre frame, although that is important to the story. and it is not the aerodynamic design that makes it look like a future car from the 1950s, although that is important, too. no, look closer at that shiny finish. and you'll see it's not paint. the entire thing is covered in solar panels. solar panels on the bonnet, solar panels on the roof, solar panels instead of a back window. yes, this is a solar powered car and they call it light year one. the first production model will be going on sale this summer. its five square metres of solar panels
