second minute, and the better side of the first 20 minutes, then of course, city are always going to dominate possession, and they began to dominate. aguero with the first call, who else? because that was his tenth goal against a villa in the six starts, then just ten minutes later, city doubled their lead, some poor defending from a corner, for aston villa, and it was a contentious issue, because dean smith from aston villa's manager believe the ball had gone on for a goal kick, replay show that he was probably right, but va are, even though we have that here, doesn't check that kind of thing, so they we re check that kind of thing, so they were 2—0 up. just before half—time, they pulled himself back in with excellent diving headers, and almost equalised at the death, and it was claudia bravo with a fantastic save, just a tip onto the post from bjorn so just a tip onto the post from bjorn so they could of equalised incentive to extra time, but in truth, city looked the better side in the second half. a little testy, but i think they were good for the win in the
end. but you know, villa fans here can leave with their heads held high, they really did take the game to manchester city. in the premier league, everton's manager carlo ancelotti was sent off as his side drew 1—1 with manchester united at goodison park. he wasn't happy after var disallowed a 91st minute harry maguire own goal, which would have won the match for everton. ancelotti confronted the officials at full time. whatever he said, the referee was not impressed and he was shown a red card. everton had taken the lead afterjust 3 minutes when united keeper david de gea's clearance rebounded off dominic calvert—lewin and went straight into the goal. bruno fernandez did equalise for united, who stay in 5th, three points behind chelsea. i asked for an explanation, they send me off, i had a conversation with him, i think i want to keep this conversation privates, and the fa ct this conversation privates, and the fact that they are going to take issue with it, but when you have to ta ke issue with it, but when you have to take it, sometimes you can be right, sometimes it can be run, any
complaint, ijust sometimes it can be run, any complaint, i just fight for them, and they gave us more confidence that we can compete with these teams. jose mourinho‘s tottenham are seventh and five points off the top four after being beaten at home by wolves, who move above spurs in the table with that win. rauljimenez scored the winner as they twice came from behind to win 3—2 in north london and move level on points with manchester united in fifth. you have to be ruthless against teams like them that play fa nta stically teams like them that play fantastically well in contact. i think we deserve much more than these results. in germany, rb leipzig are three points behind the leaders bayern after a 1—1 draw at home to bayer leverkusen. leon bailey gave leverkusen the lead. their advantage lasted only three minutes, though, with patrik shick heading

so far in this world cup. so nat sciver helped england to win, not bad on a slow wicket. the west indies innings got off to a difficult start after they lost taylor to an injury. she had to be stretchered off with what looked to be a groin problem, but to be fair the west indies but is didn't put up much resistance as england bowled them all out for 97 to get themselves through to the semifinals. what we do know, the 2016 champions are now out, the 2018 runners—up are through, largely thanks to a nat sciver innings. i felt pretty good. world number two rafa nadal won his third mexican open title with a straight sets win over 22—year—old taylor fritz. the spaniard — at the bottom of the screen — didn't drop a set all week in acapulco and took the first 6—3 against the unseeded american. and he sealed his first title of the season by taking the next 6—2. it's the 85th singles

hello. with rivers running high and many fields still underwater, we could do with a little bit of better weather news. and to a certain degree, we will get that this week. no, it's not going to be completely dry, but certainly compared with recent weeks, it won't be anywhere near as wet or as windy. the jet stream is taking a more southerly track but what that does mean is we are into slightly cooler air. it will certainly be chillier, particularly by night, with frost more likely. and that is how we start the monday morning commute, with more in the way of frost and even some ice around where showers continue in the north and west through the night. not quite as frosty toward southern counties of england. outbreaks of rain here and a bit of sleet and wet snow first thing in the morning, clearing away from east anglia and the southeast quite smartly but then brightening up. showers in the west. a mixture of rain, hail, sleet and snow.
few in number to begin with, becoming a bit more abundant during the afternoon, but not as many as we saw through the weekend. more of you on monday will spend the day completely dry, with just one or two showers passing your way. temperatures around 7—10 degrees at their highest. winds will overall be lighter. not going to feel quite as cold during the afternoon as it has done, but the breeze will be picking up across the northwest later. we could see gales for a time during monday night into tuesday. more in the way of showers starting to develop through the night and they will push their way eastwards. snow across parts of scotland, even in the hills of northern ireland and northern england later on. now, temperatures will still be close to freezing in many areas. frost and ice, the greatest risk. coldest of the weather first thing on tuesday morning towards the east. this is the set up for tuesday. that weather front taking showers eastwards initially. more rain bearing weatherfronts diverted down towards france and iberia thanks to that southern track in jet stream, but they could be close enough to produce some rain across southern most counties of england and more especially the channel islands. more showers around, by and large, to start tuesday morning. a wintry mix. those will clear away. then it's back to sunshine
and showers for many into the afternoon. showers mainly across some western areas. temperatures similar to those on monday. then, as we head into the middle part of the week, it looks like many will still stay largely dry. still some showers around here and there. chance of some rain close to the south coast on wednesday but overall, we continue with that largely dry story. it changes a little bit towards the end of the week. thursday night into friday, we'll see a weather front push its way eastwards, bringing us all a spell of rain briefly. showers follow in its wake. and then the chance of some more wet and windy weather towards the end of the week and into next weekend. but by and large, still the rivers responding to the rain we saw for the last few days. and with some rain forecasted towards the end of the week, never to stay too far away from our flood warnings. they're there for you online.
