we'll have spurs and newcastle in a minute. but first, here's ben croucher with the story of the late kick—off, where united beat west ham 4—0 to go top of the table. when it comes to buying strikers from everton, manchester united have a bit of previous. wayne rooney turned out all right — what could romelu lukaku offer in his home debut against west ham? for £75 million, he gives you this. just over half an hour to open his account. rooney scored a hat—trick on his debut. the belgian got two thirds of the way there. the spearhead for united's title tilt. west ham's new signing marco arnautovic hit the woodwork. marcus rashford was inches away for united. his replacement, anthony martial, given the freedom of the west ham penalty area. goal number three.
paul pogba didn't need to be that close. a strike to send united top of the table. could this be the season they finish there? it was a good performance with confidence level is very high, with the team coming into the second half winning and playing to score more goals and playing to win in a more comparable way. —— comfortable. i think it was a very positive performance with a good reflection of the confidence level we have. performance with a good reflection of the confidence level we havem was a great finish from lukaku for the first goal? yes, direct. good movement by lukaku. he can give us this, aerial threat in the box. very hard to play when you are too down against them because they are good on counterattacks. 0n
down against them because they are good on counterattacks. on top of that we concede to really late goals. it is a disaster zone for us. —— a disaster result. in the earlier kick—off, newcastle's latest premier league comeback started in defeat, beaten 2—0 by tottenham after captainjonjo shelvey was sent off. joe lynsky watched this one for us. in these football heartlands, hope comes with expectation. after a season away, newcastle now seek premier league progress. but in this division, one wrong move can turn the tide. the man leading them out was jonjo shelvey. a midfielder set on the unexpected. this stamp on dele alli was in front of the referee. now they knew what was coming. the home side had looked comfortable, but gaps were opening. when harry kane went close, tottenham sensed a breakthrough. alli was back on his feet and stamping his authority. no new additions have come to spurs this summer, but they can count on his quality. last season's runners—up were approaching their best. ben davies found himself in the box.
three points sealed. for newcastle and shelvey, the lessons are in black and white. progress in this division never comes easy. they tried to play deeper and play counterattack. it was not easy to find the space to create chances. with all the counter that we had, i think we need to be a little bit more urgency. the conditions were difficult. i think in the end it is massive, the three points. still i think we have to improve. today everything was so difficult. in the end we lost a game that was difficult to win against a very good team. but we had our chances and we missed these chances to do what we had to do. more sport in a moment. now the

tea rs by bosworth, a great british hope, in tears by the side of the track. it happens to the best of them. it is so common and so difficult for the marshals to spot. his mistake was to get roared on by the crowd, watching for a free, and surge to the front. but he felt in doing that. updates through the evening. so much going on. the relays is where they could be british medals. thank you. i have just been watching robbie grabarz. he has failed 229 for the second time. he has one more attempt to make that to get into the next round. england won their second straight 10 try victory in the women's rugby world cup. the defending champions beat italy 56 points to 13 in dublin, as maz farooki reports. the shirt is the same but the line—up is very different.
