cambridge. now on bbc news, sportsday. hello and welcome to sportsday with me, katherine downes. the headlines this evening: heartbreak for huddersfield — an 8ath minute goal means they are beaten by manchester city, who are once again eight points clear at the top. no surprise in the scottish league cup — celtic beat motherwell for their fourth successive domestic season. trouble brewing for england's cricketers — defeat looms in the first ashes test, while there may have been more bad behaviour off the pitch. for a while it looked like manchester city would slip up for only the second time this season, but a raheem stirling goal in the 8ath minute meant
7:36 pm
they took all three points against huddersfield and are once again eight points clear at the top of the premier league. alex gulrajani reports. yorkshire versus lancashire is always a battle worth watching, especially in huddersfield this season. david wagner has already masterminded one win over a manchester side. the league leaders had no intention of falling here. from the start they flooded forward, as chances came and went. the finishing touch was just lacking. and when they did find it, came at the wrong end. nicolas otamendi casually gifted huddersfield the lead. pep guardiola's mood would drastically improve after the break. raheem sterling bundled over in the box, penalty to manchester city. sergio aguero continuing the casual goal—scoring theme. from there, they did not stop in their search for all three points,
7:37 pm
eventually finding their way through again. sterling in the right place atjust about the right time to seal yet another win for manchester city. we had to work really, really hard. they had 11 man behind the ball, the striker was right behind our holding midfielder. it was a real fight for us midfielder. it was a real fight for us but the new plea came out strong in the second half we could do it, and that is what they did. we got the three points i think we deserved. we got the three points i think we deserved. there has been another heavy defeat for everton under caretaker manager david unsworth — they lost a—i to southampton this afternoon. saints striker charlie austin scored two second—half headers on his first league start of the season, before steven davis beat jordan pickford from the edge of the box to wrap up the victory. everton have won just once in seven games under unsworth. we are not performing and confidence is, you know,
7:38 pm
probably lower than it ever has been. this is a team that has been underperforming for the majority of the season and we have had a lot of tough games, a lot of away games, and i think we need to get back tojust some basics. we need to stop conceding goals. the goals we are conceding are killing us. we need a few home comforts. we need to get back to goodison, and we have that this week. we need to put some points on the board and fairly quickly because this performance was not acceptable. one more result to bring you from the premier league this afternoon and arsenal are up to fourth, above tottenham now, after they beat burnely, thanks to a controversial injury—time penalty. i—0 it finished. afterwards, the burnley manager sean dyche was asked if he was raging. there is a lot of me inside that is raging, a lot. but it's ok, i will still look like this. my view is that it is highly unlikely that anything other than a penalty
7:39 pm
was going to get given. in scotland, celtic have won the scottish league cup, the first major trophy of the season. they beat motherwell 2—0 at hampden park. our scottish football reporter chris mclaughlin was there. the first piece of silverware of the season goes to the side sweeping aside all in their path. motherwell were hopeful — they are a side in fine form at the moment. they wanted a battle and the first half was more intriguing than entertaining. richard tait with the best chance. shortly after the interval the breakthrough, and what a finish from james forrest. the scotland international‘s eighth of the season. motherwell were looking immediately to level, but what about this from craig gordon? an incredible reaction stop. then a controversial penalty. kipre bringing down sinclair. the referee said penalty and sent the frenchman off. dembele converted and it was 2—0 to celtic.
7:40 pm

7:41 pm
but, after an age, he was out. england's tail once again didn't hang around. australia left with a target ofjust 170. and, led by david warner, they ruthlessly set about the run chase. by the close, england demoralised and all but defeated. very disappointed. i thought the first three days we played well and we were in the game. today, we let ourselves down. with the bat especially, we got in and never really got that big score we needed. but, hours later, there was another problem. claims jonny bairstow was involved in an incident in perth four weeks ago while in the same bar as australia's opener cameron bancroft, also playing in this match. it's understood — quote — their heads met at one point, although they both left amicably. in a statement, the england and wales cricket board said there was no report of an incident from the venue, security or police and there was no injury reported. but with the ongoing controversy
7:42 pm

7:43 pm
of the pack is the wolf. this was apparently brits try, but exeter chiefs are one of the few teams in england to know how to beat saracens. they did it on bush to the title last season and ian whitten lead them back into this. eight minutes remaining as saracens tried to hold them up somewhere in there low went lower. wait for the whistle. try. and the conversion was simple. this to win it, and almost effortless enter our relentless match. in the other premiership match today, wasps came from behind to beat london irish i7—i3. in the three games in the pro ia today there were wins for glasgow, france have won their 10th davis cup by beating belgium. world number 18 lucas pouille beat belgium's steve darcis in a deciding final match in front of a electric crowd in lille. it is france's first title since 2001. valtteri bottas held off team—mate
