stories. hello and welcome to sportsday with karthi gna nasegaram. the headlines this evening: in complete control — england force the follow on as west indies continue to struggle. mourinho hails his team's class, calm and consistency as they score four again. and rodgers tests out his academy graduates as they take on kilmarnock and come away with a win. also coming up in the programme: england start the defence of their eurohockey title — we'll have the action from the netherlands. and ahead of next week's world championships in glasgow, we look at how british badminton are hoping to change some minds following the complete funding cut that followed the rio olympics. there's an awful lot to bring to you,
7:32 pm
including all of the reaction to today's premier legaue games, but we are going to start at edgbaston, where england are in complete control of the first test against west indies. they have forced the tourists to follow on. let's go live tojoe wilson, who can get us up to date with west indies‘ second innings. good evening. almost 25,000 spectators here at edgbaston today, many in fancy dress. west indies 81-4 in many in fancy dress. west indies 81—1; in their second innings. they stopped being a contest a long time ago. not sure how much we have learned about that pink ball, but we have been reminded of the huge gap between these two teens. flags can be waived in celebration oi’ flags can be waived in celebration or raised in distress. hope had gone in the first over today, one of them. anderson got kyle hope as a
7:33 pm
bowler, and then in the next over dismissed powell as a fielder. they run out. next, roston chase gone without score. james anderson, the pink ball wizard. within the first hour, the younger hope brother was out as well. toby roland—jones had struck and then again, lbw no doubt, at least from not from the umpire. it is hard to make the pink ball shine, but england were trying. whose turnout? roland—jones, meet jermaine blackwood. that is the west indies spirit, isn't it? blackwood made 50. kemar roach, but broad was too good. look out blackwood played him. even in test matches, there is a lwa ys him. even in test matches, there is always something new. when cummings was run out, it was 168 all out in the first innings. and, west indies,
7:34 pm
you are batting again. a follow—on. the floodlights were on and cook could not make out that pink ball all the way into his hands. keep in mind, these are second innings wickets falling, and it wasn't even dark. the twilight cricket still loomed. the scorecards will show you in stark terms he differs between the two teens. alastair cook leading the way with a double century, then the west indies in deep trouble in their second innings. remember, they need to get to 346 in the second innings just to make england bat again. they are over way behind that. the difficulty for batting is in the twilight zone we are in now. one further point, we saw in those pictures ben stokes taking the third wicket. he has been quicker and more
7:35 pm
accurate than many of the west indies bowlers, and he is perhaps the fourth bowler for england. manchester united continue to look impressive at the start of this new premier league season. after beating west ham 4—0 last weekend, they repeated that scoreline at swansea today. lukaku and pogba were on the scoresheet again too. patrick gearey has the details. if you believe in the power of patterns and signs in sport, maybe this is manchester united and jose mourinho‘s year. whether he has been in the second season, he has won the league. this division has a way of dismantling master plans. jordan ayew within an inch of creating a hitch. a foul, but the player was told off, not sent. swansea felt he should have been said of, and they failed to do acknowledge his presence. the first league goal, no wonder he held onto the ball. mourinho‘s
7:36 pm
philosophy has been backed with money, buying you the reliability of romelu lukaku. then partner got this one “— romelu lukaku. then partner got this one —— paul pogba got this one. i would say there was happiness in our play. it has happened with me so many times with my teens. you are winning1—0, then you get the second and you don't give the chance to the opponents. you get the feeling you can score more, so there is no reason to close the door. you let the horses run freely. they were magnificent. there were a lot of positive things. it doesn't feel like that because when you get beaten 4—0 at home, it
7:37 pm
is hard. we want to do better than that. i want to make sure the players to let this affect the confidence to match. they are against a team who will compete for the title this season. it is a strong start for them, both this week and last week. we have got to brush ourselves down and concentrate on preparing for the league cup against mk dons. then we are away from home at crystal palace on saturday. liverpool looked like they were going to be frustrated by crystal palace at anfield. after drawing at watford last weekend, a stalemate looked to be on the cards. but as often happens, sadio mane proved the difference forjurgen klopp's side. the senegal international scored midway through the second half to give liverpool their first win of the season. palace have now lost two out of two. especially at 1—0 up, make them work. roberto firmino had
7:38 pm
situations. we were lucky in one of two moments. we could have closed the game earlier, but we didn't. again, an all inclusive package. i saw isawa i saw a team that want to fight for every metre. in the end, it could have been a draw, a win for liverpool, but could also turn the other way. we had two chances, which was quite big. we played a little but more deep in our own half and waited for the chances we could get. there were a lot of times they were frustrated because we played very organised. there was a thrilling match at st mary's where a stoppage time penalty from charlie austin saw southampton beat west ham 3—2. the saints looked to be cruising after a goal from gabbiadini and a tadic penalty put them two up while west ham had marco arnautovic sent off. but hammers new signing javier hernandez pulled one back just before half time,
7:39 pm
before equalising midway through the second. it stayed like that until the dying seconds when pablo zabaleta was deemed to have pushed maya yoshida in the box, and austin calmly scored from the spot. we were in trouble at some moments. 0k, we played a team with quality in this type of action. but we got three points, we had to keep going. we had to learn from this game. it is the second game. we started the game well and we had chances to take the lead or equalise. we didn't. we conceded a cheap goal, the first one from the counterattack. but we reacted well and i'm proud of the team. in the last humanist, stoke have
7:40 pm
beaten arsenal in the evening game. but he's's side got all three points. so early in the season, a time to renew old rivalries. and makes a new introductions. sa arrived in the uk only this week. it took only three minutes what do make themselves known. more familiar the side of arsenal surging forward. they doubt that this deserved a penalty, but the referee thought otherwise. a first half of few chances, but no few regrets. aaron ramsey's were clear. this was a day to enjoy the welcome, and no better way than this was not a first goal for stoke, it is what he came to do. he would be substituted, but those stoke fans are now had a cause for optimism. many arsenal hopes alive with a new start. for a moment,
7:41 pm
many arsenal hopes alive with a new start. fora moment, it looked like he had saved them. but it was only a moment. nervous times for some, but they needn't have worried. the equaliser wasn't coming. a victory for stoke and quite the introduction for stoke and quite the introduction for their new player. so here are all the results. second half goals from richarlison and capoue gave watford a 2—0 win at bournemouth. hal robson kanu had an eventful game for west brom — scoring their winner against burnley, before being sent off. shinji 0kazaki scored his second goal of the season for leicester as they beat brighton 2—0. harry maguire got the other — his first for the club. chelsea will play tottenham tomorrow. it'll be spurs first premier league game to be played at wembley, while their new stadium is being completed. mauricio pochttino's side struggled at wembley last season, after moving their champions league home games there, but he admits the team only has themselves to blame, not the stadium, if they perform badly this season.
7:42 pm
wembley was a big dream. now i have the possibility to play every two weeks, or maybe every week or three games in one week, and it is at wembley. come on, i love wembley. i am honest with you, it is not a problem with wembley, we are a problem with wembley, we are a problem if we don't win. also tomorrow — two of the three promoted teams play each other as huddersfield take on newcastle. huddersfield are back in the top flight for the first time since 1972. they thrashed crystal palace 3—0 in their opening match. the bbc‘s mark clemmit asked manager david wagner the secret to their success, and maybe regretted it. is it true you sent everybody, the
7:43 pm
players, the staff out for a game with a job on the back of the neck? maybe this is my match day routine, to give my energy to the players. should i show you? that hurts as well! very good. following their emphatic win in their champions league play off this week, celtic rang the changes for their trip to kilmarnock in the scottish premiership. it didn't make much difference though. the champions produced another dominant display, winning 2—0 to make it three wins out of three so far this season. tim hague reports. celtic have eaten up all before them for the last year. did kill manukau of the appetite to stop them today?
7:44 pm
neither side seemed package in the first half. scott brown went close as for the away side but as is so often the case, celtic found a way asjamie often the case, celtic found a way as jamie forrest found the net before half—time. 0n the plastic pitch, he was almost at it again. could they get that crucial second? calvin miller almost did. a promising performance from the 19—year—old throughout, but not capped with a goal. although kill manukau coming, they did not score. —— although kill marnoch kept coming. 52 matches now unbeaten for celtic. their dominance enough to put any opponent of their food. aberdeen have also kept up their 100% start to the season, after beating dundee at pittoderie, stevie may was the hero for the home side, scoring twice. elsewhere stjohnstone
7:45 pm
have also taken maxiumum points from the season. it's the first time in their history that they've won their first three league games of the season. michael 0'halloran got the only goal of the game against partick thistle. hamilton won at hibs while motherwell beat ross county. rangers drew 0—0 with hearts. so after three matches, here's the table. no surprise to see celtic at the top, ahead on goal difference from stjohnstone and aberdeen. dundee, partick and kilmarnock have all yet to take their first points of the season. 0nto the championship, and there was a good win for leeds over sunderland. chris wood withdrew from the side for leeds. he scored 27 goals last season, but is close to £50 million move to burnley. leeds managed
7:46 pm
without him, though. stuart dallas make sure of the victory. it is their first make sure of the victory. it is theirfirst win at make sure of the victory. it is their first win at the stadium of light since 2004. ipswich and cardiff each have four straight wins so far this season. ipswich beat brentford while cardiff won impressively at wolves. derby beat bolton, while there were first wins of the season for sheffield wednesday at fulham, and aston villa over norwich. nottingham forests good start to the season continued with victory over middlesbrough, preston beat reading while qpr came from behind to beat hull. it might be august but we have already had one round of fa cup qualifying games and today he bbc cameras were at south shields in the prelimary qualifyoing roudn as they beat bridlington town 3—1. former south african international midfielder matty pattinson scored the pick of the goals in the second half. the fa cup dream is still alive for the team from the north east — only 11 matches now to the final at wembley! all today's results
7:47 pm
are on the bbc sport website. europe's women still face an uphill battle to win back the solheim cup from the usa in iowa. the hosts lead by three points — 7.5 to 4.5 at the moment. in today's morning foursomes, the us extended their overnight lead initially. both their opening pairs winning easily, 5 and 3. but european rookie georgia hall continued her great form. shots like this giving her and partner anna nordqvist a win. and then late replacement catriona matthew secured her 21st solheim cup point when she and karine icher secured a 2 and 1 victory. the four balls are now under way. england have started their eurohockey title defence with a 4—1win over ireland in amsterdam. england led early on thanks to laura unsworth
7:48 pm
and doubled the lead through an ellie watton deflected shot. after england had gone 3—1 ahead, some quick thinking from alex danson from close range made the game safe. next up for england in pool b tomorrow is germany. the most exciting thing about it is it is five games, a quick tournament and every match matters. it matters for points, goals. we are delighted with today but now it is about going onto tomorrow, which will be another tough outing. and it was the germans who earlier in the day beat scotland 4—1 in their pool b match. scotland are joint bottom of their pool with ireland who are their opponents tomorrow. england are level on three points with germany. tennis, and britain'sjoanna konta's run at the cincinnati 0pen has been brought to an end by the world number two, simona halep. konta, who is the seventh seed, got the better of halep in their past three meetings, including a quarterfinal match at wimbledon, but that run was put in danger when konta lost
7:49 pm

couple of times at least to get it right. it's not like i'm going to run 2:04 straight. i think it will ta ke run 2:04 straight. i think it will take a while. a year ago today, gb badminton players chris langridge and marcus ellis were celebrating their historic 0lympic bronze medal — it was the sport's first success since 2004. just months later though they were left devastated as uk sport axed all their funding support through to the next 0lympics. next week langridge and ellis as well as britain's other leading players will compete in the world championships in glasgow, knowing they need results to try and restore some funding support. bbc 0lympic reporter nick hope has more. british badminton players knew they we re british badminton players knew they were under pressure going into the rio 0lympics because they had been so much success elsewhere, they needed that medal. that is why they celebrated with such passion when they won the olympic bronze medal. they thought they had saved their sport. the reality was a less than four months later, uk sport axed their entire funding support, believing they did not represent a edible chance for the 2020 games.
