6:33 pm
liverpool put on a fantastic performance. with all the action, here is adam wild. at anfield you're never too far from a reminder of history. if we have learned anything it is that this fixture down the yea rs has often it is that this fixture down the years has often provided goals and drama. with such promise, it is no surprise that there were plenty of early chances. perhaps few expected them to fall almost exclusively the way of liverpool. such was the dominance in the first—half, roberto firmino‘s opener was no more than they deserved. they could and should have had more by
6:34 pm
the time sadio mane expertly guided them to wait a second. as impressive as liverpool were, arsenal at times looked stunned and helpless. no half—time team talk could rein in the red, liverpool out on their own. the third came. those that could perhaps wish they had not. liverpool we re perhaps wish they had not. liverpool were ruthless and rampant and with this daniel sturridge header, 4—0 up. arsenal outplayed and outgunned, liverpool magnificent. not the drama history taught us to expect, still arsenal taught a lesson. adam wild, bbc news. we were really organised. if you give arsenal space and time, they will do what they want to do. also you are lost before the game starts. i don't think that arsenal could do today a lot of times what we wanted. that is all credit to the boys, because they worked really hard. the performance was not what we requested. they took advantage of it. it raises many questions. but i
6:35 pm
still believe that you do not think that these players are not good. they are. it showed that today we we re they are. it showed that today we were not at that level. start with football — the premier league champions chelsea beat everton two—nil today. (oov) it makes it two wins from three matches for antonio conte after their surprise opening day defeat to burnley. spanish striker alvaro morato set up cesc fabregas for chelsea's first goal, and scored the second himself, against a below par everton. i think the only negative aspect could be that we have to be more clinical, tried to score and close the game. definitely. but, we must be pleased because the players performed very well with great concentration and we finished our game with a clean sheet. yes. i think that we saw a lot of positive
6:36 pm
things. dele alli put spurs ahead early in the second half, but chris would who signed for burnley last week scored on his debut two minutes into injury time. i think we have given a good account of ourselves. i have been pleased with the group, how they continued to adapt to the premier league. we want to build on last season. pockets of play showed we could do that but overall it is the result and a fantastic result in the result and a fantastic result in the grand scheme of what they are. it finished one all between west brom and stoke, with albion strikerjay rodriguez scoring on his home debut. it was his first goal since his move from southampton, and west brom looked on course for their third win of the season. but their hopes though ofjoining manchester united at the top of the table were dashed, when a defensive mix up allowed peter crouch to head home. in the scottish premiership, rangers are up to sixth in the table, five points behind leaders aberdeen, as they won 3—1 at ross county.
6:37 pm
they were already a goal up through alfredo morel—los when county's goalkeeper scott fox had a moment to forget — he looked like he was in control of the situation, but allowed morellos to get up and put rangers two—nil ahead. thomas mikkelson did pull one back, but rangers wrapped up the match with two minutes to go through eduardo herrera. an important result for them after two home games without a win. dundee ended a run of five scottish premiership defeats with a one all draw against hibernian — kevin holt put them ahead after less than ten minutes. but steven whittaker, who'd conceded that penalty, made amends by finding anthony stokes, whose shot went in off kerr waddell‘s toe. hibs remain fifth, while dundee are off the bottom of the table. england's cricketers are struggling in their second innings, on day three of the second test against a much—improved west indies. despite two james anderson wickets with the first two balls of the day, england finished a three where they
6:38 pm
started it and why they have been for most of this test match. they have a lead now ofjust two runs. it has been an enthralling game and an enthralling day. unpredictable from the very start. cheap brands at headingley, england had not found any offer on what it's all saturday. they spent a long time waiting and on sunday morning, by one, get free. shai hope on the first ball and then shane dowrich. jimmy anderson just three from 500 in tears. jermaine blackwood nearly threw himself in with the england deal, straight to moeen ali, oh no. england could not afford mistakes not with the west indies gliding away. jason holder held the post and by the time they we re held the post and by the time they were pulled out, his team had a big
6:39 pm
lead. sunday lunchtime, west indies 160 macro runs in front. more pressure on england batting line—up. scrutiny followed mark stoneman to the crease, still feeling his way in test cricket. that requires the sort of concentration which offers little stimulation, but rather that than the alarm call butjilted alastair cook from the crease. in came tom westley, but inadvertently hit the snooze button. mark stoneman made a careful 50, little he could do about this from shannon gabriel, though. england now in big trouble, it would have been worse had dual route had been caught. however you try to build, can fall apart at headingley. england 171—3 at the close. joel root was given out lbw after that and he reviewed it and it was overturned and maccabi a big moment. england's hopes they depend on him and they will be more worries
6:40 pm
about the form of tom westley but england will be pleased that mark stoneman made 50. it was brave because he had an injured finger. another concern came from the icc who gave ben stokes demerit point because he was caught swearing on a stump microphone yesterday. if he does it again, he will get banned and that is a concern for england but the ashes, not because they cannot afford to lose a player of his standard. if they know this punishment is hanging over them, you feel that australia will try and wind him up to try and get him banned. thank you for that update. lewis hamilton has trimmed sebastien vettel‘s championship lead to seven points after victory in the belgian grand prix. having equalled michael schumacher‘s record of pole positions to start from the front of the grid, he went on to finish ahead of his title rival. tom clarkson has been following the action in belgium. the bank holiday weekend. this was no time to relax. lewis hamilton and sebastien vettel started first and
6:41 pm
second and that continued for much of the race. they kept it clean but others could not, the force india car somehow avoided a major shunt on the opening lap as hamilton and sebastien vettel were in a class of their own, the pair behind fancied round two, sergio perez forced este ba n round two, sergio perez forced esteban against the wall. prayer is punctured, the safety car closed everything back up. at the restart, sebastien vettel had his best opportunity to pass his rival, he had the best towers and the slipstream, he had not quite enough power to make it stick. this was hamilton's 200th race and he knows how to win them by now. he closes the gap to sebastien vettel at the top of the standings to seven points and with the races now coming thick and with the races now coming thick and fast, little chance to relax from here on end. andrea dovizioso now leads the moto gp championship after winning the british moto gp at silverstone. (00v) marc marquez lost his place at the top of the standings when his honda broke down with seven laps to go.
6:42 pm
dovizioso took the lead from fellow italian valentino rossi with just three laps left and held on to take the chequered flag ahead of maverick vinales and rossi. britain's cal crutchlow was fourth, while scott reading was in eighth place. after weeks of big talk, one of the richest fights in the world is over. american boxing champion floyd mayweather beat irish martial arts champion conor mcgregor in the tenth round — making it a perfect career record of 50 fights for the a0 year old. more from our sports news correspondent richard conway. 50 wins, no defeats. floyd mayweather confirmed his position as one of the all—time greats in a fight that surpassed expectations. there is only one conor mcgregor!l sense of hope, anticipation and excitement had built throughout the day with irish fans turning the desert city green. he has got the punchers chance and if he can land
6:43 pm
one of his left hand shots, he could do it. floyd mayweather was not without support either. 49 try and 49 fail, it will be 50 tonight. put your money where your mouth is. when the bell rang for the first round, mcgregor was all guns blazing, catchy of powerful shots but in his first professional boxing contest, the pace and skills of mayweather ground him down and he visibly tired. by the ninth round, mcgregor's legs began to wobble, clinging to his opponent and robes for survival. the next round saw the
6:44 pm
end ofa for survival. the next round saw the end of a fight that had intrigued and repulsed in equal measure. with all its controversies and the amount of money involved, some had believed this fight would be a fast but in the end it was far from it. the controversies remain, deeper unease about the fight that was put on primarily for the a am very it was a very enjoyable experience and a great learning experience. very enjoyable experience and a great learning experiencelj very enjoyable experience and a great learning experience. i am very atan end, great learning experience. i am very at an end, the circus has now left two of sports greatest showman, delivered entertainment, but with the cheques cashed and the hype at an end, the circus has now left there's been a gold for great britain after liam heath finished a canoe sprint at the world championships (tx 00v) heath won the k1200 event in the czech republic and now holds the olympic, world and european titles. the olympic champion crossed the line in under 34 seconds with his nearest rival over a third of a second behind. and finally, we'll finish with at the euro hockey championships where england's men beat germany 4—2 to secure a bronze medal (tx 00v) england came back from a goal down to claim their first major medal since 2011. phil roper scored the decisive goal when england countered from their own half while germany were searching for an equaliser. england also secured third place in the women's competition with a 2—nil victory over germany on saturday. richard conway, bbc news, las. there will be more on that the news channel throughout the that is all
