sacked this season. he leaves hull city less than three months into thejob. matt renshaw goes for 184, but australia are dominant. we'll bring you up to date with the third and final test against pakistan. hello and thanks forjoining us, there was a six—goal thriller on the south coast as bournemouth and arsenal played out an enthralling 3—3 draw in the english premier league on tuesday. incredibly the cherries were 3—0 up with 20 minutes to go — when alexis sanchez pulled one back to launch arsenal's revival. lucas perez made it 3—2 a few minutes later. after bournemouth‘s captain simon francis was sent off with seven minutes left, olivier giroud scored in the second minute of stoppage time to earn the gunners a point. before the game, we wanted the three points, but on the other hand, some big teams have dropped points here, and when you are free zero down, you

have to acknowledge the quality of the response of your team to come back to 3—3. not everybody can do that. mixed feelings tonight, but my tea m that. mixed feelings tonight, but my team has shown great mental strength. it is a strange one for us. strength. it is a strange one for us. 3—0 up you think the game is over, but you can't underestimate the quality of arsenal. as soon as they got that first goal, the game changed. we did not see the game out in an effective manner, but you have to praise their resilience. i think the game changed on that moment. so good from a difficult angle and then it is 3-2 good from a difficult angle and then it is 3—2 and we get a man sent off. they conspired against us in several ways. i thought it was a harsh decision. it was about trying to scrap it out and finished the game, but unfortunately equality of their players showed. — —

but unfortunately equality of their players showed. —— quality. swansea city made a winning start in front of their new head coach paul clement on his first day in the job. the former real madrid and bayern munich assistant coach saw his new team win 2—1 at crystal palace where alfie mawson put the visitors in front just before half—time. palace must have thought they'd got a point when wilfried zaha equalised with seven minutes to go, but angel rangel won it for swansea two minutes from time. the result means that palace remain one point above the relegation zone — and swansea are only a point behind them. we were brilliant and started doing what we should be doing at home, giving the crowd a bit of excitement. then we won the goal that should have at least got a set point. but then the downside is the switch of four there were no when virtually everybody was behind the ball and didn't deal with it. massively disappointing tonight. massively disappointing tonight. massively disappointing. but a lot of it was out of our control. because, like i said, the fatigue

levels were obviously there for all to see. one more game in the english premier league on tuesday. stoke city are up to 11th with a comfortable 2—0 win at home to watford. that's a first win in six matches for the potters. ryan shawcross opened the scoring for stoke seconds before the half time whistle. that's a first goal for the stoke captain since new year's day 2015. peter crouch then prodded in a second four minutes after the restart. five games without a win for watford now, but a good day at the office for stoke manager mark hughes we played better, but i think we just needed that win. there was a bit of anxiety in our play initially because of that bad experience losing a two goal lead. but this will settle us down. it is a new year and new start for us. staying in england, mike phelan has been sacked as the head coach of hull city — less than three months after being confirmed

in the position. the former manchester united defender took over on a caretaker basis at the start of the season — following steve bruce's departure. phelan‘s position was made permanent in october — but he's now been sacked with the club at the foot of the table. they've won just 3 of their 20 league games so far this season. in spain, atletico madrid look well placed to reach the quarter—finals of the copa del rey. koke and antoine griezmann scored their goal as they won 2—0 at las palmas in the first leg of their last 16 tie. elsewhere, deportivo la coruna were held to a 2—2 draw by alaves, eibar won 3—0 at osasuna, and valencia's season took another turn for the worse as they lost 4—1 at home to celta vigo. the brazilian club chapecoense returned to action on tuesday — just five weeks after the plane crash that claimed the lives of nearly their whole squad. they lost 2—0 to nova iguasu in the copa sao paulo under—20 tournament in brazil. before kick—off there was a minute's silence for all those who died in the crash in colombia
1:50 am
on the 28th november. in all, 71 people lost their lives — including 22 players from chapocoense, and 25 other members of staff. the minute's silence was then followed by a minute's applause. the game's two goals were both scored in the second half, with nathan turning and firing nova iguacu into the lead after an hour. and it was nathan who scored the second as well, 13 minutes from time. chapecoense — who are trying to re—build after last year's tragedy — nearly pulled one back just before the end, but this effort from luquinhas ended up on top of the goal. on to cricket — and it's lunch on day two of the third and final test between australia and pakistan at the sydney cricket ground. the home side in complete cruise control. the aussies are 454—4. matt renshaw‘s tremendous maiden

test century came to an end on 187 after he played on, but peter hanscomb is yet to be dismissed in test cricket for less than 50 runs. he's unbeaten on 83 in his fourth test match. the baggie greens already have an unassailable 2—0 lead in the three—match series. meanwhile, south africa have taken a stranglehold on the second test against sri lanka in cape town. kagiso rabada and vernon philander each took four wickets as the tourists were bowled out forjust 110 in reply to the home side's first innings total of 392 — which included centuries for dean elgar and quintin de kock. south africa closed the day on 35—0 in their second innings — a lead of 317. the england rugby union coach eddiejones has confirmed that dylan hartley will captain the side in the forthcoming six nations championship — if he's fit. he's currently serving a six—week ban for striking an opponent while playing for his club northampton in a european cup tie. hartley — who led england to the six nations title last year — has been banned for a total of 5a

weeks during his career and missed two world cups in the process, butjones says the hooker will lead england when they begin the defence of their title at home to france on the 11th of february. he is right to be captain. he has come to the camps and worked hard. a pre— requisite to get in the england side is to be very fit, and not playing games, it means he has to undergo an unbelievably stringent fitness programme over the next five 01’ fitness programme over the next five or six weeks. he is doing that, and putting himself in the best position to continue as captain. when will you know your england captain? we will name the squad before the portugal camp, one week before the french game, and then we will name the actual captain when we name the team. is it in mind to that dylan hartley continue? 100%. if
