6:31 pm
terror attack from metropolitan police shortly. we will go straight to that. in the meantime, let's ci’oss to that. in the meantime, let's cross to sportsday. hello and welcome to sportsday with me tim hague. the headlines this evening... there's no roy of the rovers start for hodgson. his new palace side have now lost their first five premier league games and fail to score again. scoring, not a problem for manchester city though. they go clear at the top, as sergio aguero‘s hatrick helps them to a 6—0 win at watford. and sebastien vettel is sensational in singapore. he takes pole position ahead of tomorrow's grand prix, but championship leader lewis hamilton can only manage fifth. also coming up in the programme: another huge fight night in las vegas approaches. we bring you all the build up to saul alvarez versus gennady golovkin — two of boxing's biggest punchers. we begin with the day's football
6:32 pm
and roy hodgson‘s return to management with crystal palace began in defeat to southampton. if the former england boss didn't know the size of the task facing him, he does know, as palace lost again. —— he does now. that's now five defeats from five, without scoring a goal, the first time that's ever happened in the top flight. adam wild reports. from the terraces to the top job, roy hodgson‘s life now comes full circle. taking charge of crystal palace, the club he supported as a boy. these won't be the circumstances of which he once dreamed. he is inheriting a crisis at crystal palace. if that wasn't obvious before, it was soon crystal clear. southampton took the lead after little more than five minutes.
6:33 pm
steven davis scored. if crystal palace are to arrest that dismal form, they need to start scoring. even with the likes of christian benteke, that is easier said than done. first—half chances limited. clearly frustrating. for the former england boss, these are perhaps familiar feelings. after the break, palace created some chances. but fraser forster in fine form. this was no fresh start at selhurst. they now become the first team in top—flight history to lose their first five games without so much as a goal. hodgson carries little blame for that but it is his job the trend drum. so another defeat for palace. our football reporter john bennettjoins me now. it's already looking like a worrying season for them. you mentioned it at the top. first tea m you mentioned it at the top. first team in top—flight history to lose
6:34 pm
all of the first five games without scoring. it's been a map or three minutes since they last squad. —— it's been a50 minutes. the grains coming upfor it's been a50 minutes. the grains coming up for crystal palace are extremely tough. it want get any better any time since. i want to pick up on southampton. all the talk about crystal palace. the most passes completed, the most cultures of the ball, really good performance from him. everybody will be talking about crystal palace, though. we didn't play well enough as a team or individually to get the result we wanted to do. that's a fact of football life. words don't win you football matches, performances do. today, i'm afraid, we came up against a better team and lost.
6:35 pm
tough task for roy hodgson. calls area tough task for roy hodgson. calls are a problem for crystal palace. so goals a problem for crystal palace, but the same can't be said of manchester city. they made it 15 in a week today, didn't they? 15 goals in the last week. sergio aguero with a hat—trick today. they are outstanding at the moment, manchester city. they are looking phenomenal. after —— gabrieljesus on the scoresheet. watford totally outplayed. it could've been so much more. 28 shots today for manchester city. pep guardiola will be very happy that result. it's complicated, that's the champions league. just three days the next game, i didn't expect to win in this way. i am so happy for the players for their commitment. three more points, especially for
6:36 pm
the way we played. city is strong enough, we made some m ista kes city is strong enough, we made some mistakes in the first goals we conceded but the first goal, everybody said to be, it is offside. the second goal, we made a big mistake. have time, made some reaction but the first and third is offside. it's not a normal game. everybody has been complimenting marco silva's work. there's not a lot that his side could do about city today. what a dual upfront. just the options they got off the bench. bernardo silva. watford were unbeaten going into the skin. no mean feat for manchester city to win 6—0. —— into the game.
6:37 pm
who would bet against them winning the title this season? watford, they drew with liverpool earlier this season. so city have already done the business today, but spurs are currently trying to get make it three wins in a week too — they're currently playing swansea at wembley. harry kane, he has scored four goals in his last few games, fancies his chances again. the night. it's been all stories in the first half. —— it's been all spurs. a positive start for morrissey of budgetary gnome's side. spurs looking like a decent side this season. a different challenge today. morrissey at dortmund came at them midweek. swa nsea dortmund came at them midweek. swansea are sitting back. swansea are managing to keep christian eriksen quite. that is a big problem
6:38 pm
forjobs from —— forethought and in the second half. a bit of a struggle for liverpool at the moment, conceding five last weekend, dropping points in the champions league on wednesday and now more points dropped in the league against burnley. 1-1 1—1 draw. it was equalised. would you believe that liverpool had seven more shots than manchester city today and still only scored one goal. they were very wasteful today. you have to give credit to burnley for defending well. jurgen klopp will be extremely frustrated with the chances that liverpool missed. i'm not happy about the result. i am unhappy about a big part of the performance. you probably saw the away games of burnley, they won the last home game with four shots, 1—0. until the last two corners, i think, one shot on target.
6:39 pm
the game could have been lost in these situations. 0verall, overall, we deserved it in a different way. similar to last week. but different. they make it tough. they made seven changes, freshness. a light has been made of set piece, maybe they are not as good with a real stuff. we exaggerated our game plan today. we exaggerated today. it was effective overall. jurgen klopp not too happy with that result. rafael benitez must have been unhappy career in the season. they lost their first two league games. they lost to monitor them —— nottingham forest. kieran wins in a i’ow 110w. nottingham forest. kieran wins in a row now. we've got two winners in a i’ow
6:40 pm
row now. we've got two winners in a row for the defender. he is the captain becoming quite the humour. newcastle had delayed. to give a got the equaliser. first—time stalk have lost since the opening day. disappointment for mark hughes. for benitez, after all of the doom and gloom before the deadline, a silver lining. these players worked very hard. sometimes there are problems but after the reaction of the team, we know they are doing all they can to give us the points. i won't say they will then all the time, this is impossible, but at least we will compete and be capable of winning games. we've played better than that in recent weeks, we were a bit loose in terms of accuracy. in saying that, newcastle looked to put pressure on
6:41 pm
and hit us on the break, we had to be vigilant at these moments. towards the end of the game, we made a mistake on the set play and they got into the lead for the second time. that was disappointing after working hard to get back on level terms. a disappointing result. . let's have a look at all of today's founa—blake —— premier league games. what about huddersfield against leicester — that one was 1—1. leicester needing some points, jamie vardy scoring a penalty for them. jamie vardy equalised with a penalty. it's worth watching match of the day, a contravention move. —— a controversial. 0nly of the day, a contravention move. —— a controversial. only two shots on target, notable for gareth barry, first player to start 600 premier league games for westbourne today.
6:42 pm
equalling 632nd premier league appearances, equalling ryan giggs. important result for west ham. here is the table. the thing i noticed about this, the two manchester clubs are at the top, but look at that goal difference. five games, an average of almost three a game. newcastle united opted for. it's days, only five games, great for newcastle fantasies and. liverpool had a disappointing draw. gee-whiz ina row had a disappointing draw. gee-whiz in a row for newcastle united. thank you for now. we will see you at our past seven. —— three wins in a row. let's stick with football though, and head down into the championship as barnsley are currently hosting aston villa in the late kick—off. both of these sides down towards the relegation places
6:43 pm
and it's villa who lead 1—0 after this goal from albert adomah. a penalty just before a penaltyjust before half—time. a foul from barnsley. 2—0 a penaltyjust before half—time. a foulfrom barnsley. 2—0 now. both the sides in the relegation zone. elsewhere in the championship leeds' unbeaten run came to an end as they were lost 1—0 at millwall. leeds, wolves and cardiff all have 17 points at the top of the table, wolves beat nottingham forest 2—1. sol bamba's late equaliser earned cardiff a point against sheffield wednesday, he scored in the 9ath minute. there were also wins for in form preston, bristol city, burton, middlesbrough and norwich. hull and sunderland drew 1—1. disappointment for keeping rangers. it was the biggest match in the core's yesterday but the peterborough —based side were beaten a-2 peterborough —based side were beaten a—2 by kidderminster. in the scottish premiership,
6:44 pm
aberdeen drew 1—1 with kilmarnock, it means they now sit two points behind champions celtic who eased past ross county a—0. dundee recorded their first win of the season with stjohnstone suffering their first defeat — 3—2 the score at dens park. hearts won away at hamilton 2—1 and louie moult scored twice as motherwell came from behind to earn a point at hibernian. sebastien vettel will start on pole ahead of tomorrow's singapore grand prix. lewis hamilton will begin from fifth. which means the ferrari driver will feel confident about surpassing his rival in the drivers standings come race day. tom clarkson is in singapore for us. with formula 1 being a mechanised sport, it's sometimes difficult to work out whether it's the car or the driver making the difference. during qualifying for the singapore grand prix we were left in no doubt about the talents of one man.
6:45 pm
wo0h00! no wonder sebastian vettel was happy. after losing his championship lead to lewis hamilton last time in italy, pole was vital. for much of qualifying, it looked as though max verstappen would take that. seven of the nine... his red bull team dominated practice and he clocked the quickest time in the first two sessions. but sebastian vettel had been keeping his powder dry. hamilton and bottas ended up fifth and sixth. it suited ferrari perfectly. verstappen couldn't match vettel‘s times. despite clipping a wall, the four—time world champion went even quicker. with three cars and more than half a second between him and hamilton, the german will expect to regain his championship lead. very, very happy. the car was amazing. it's an amazing track if you feel that the car is coming alive
6:46 pm
and you can do what you want to. i knew we had it in us. it was a bit of a struggle to get there. now i'm just happy. just a shame you couldn't get on pole, the final lap was not great but we were quite close. i'm happy with that. it will be difficult to pass on during the race. i'm still confident about victory. we've got a great package. he turned it on in qualifying but i'm positive. sebastian vettel understandably happy with his pole position. lewis hamilton is starting in fifth. he said he needs to perform a miracle if he is to get anywhere near sebastian vettel. the ramifications of what happened in this grand prix should could be huge. there arejust
6:47 pm
three points between hamilton and sebastian vettel. all to play for. rugby union now and leicester tigers won their first game of the season, by beating gloucester 2a—10 at welford road the tigers had lost their first two league games, but ran in three tries inside the opening 20 minutes, two from ben youngs and this one from australia winger nick malouf. the other premiership game of the day between newcastle and saracens kicks off at 10pm tonight in philadelphia in the united states. meanwhile munster maintained their unbeaten start to the pro1a season after a 21—16 win over 0spreys at the liberty stadium. the hosts took an early lead, but two first half tries gave the irish side an eight point advantage. and while several second half penalties put 0spreys back into contention... that late penalty from tyler bleyendaal sealed the victory. at southern kings 31—10.
6:48 pm
