7:33 pm
liverpool have ended manchester city's 30 match unbeaten run in the top flight, with an entertaining 4—3 win. the reds scored three goals in eight minutes in the second—half, which handed city theirfirst league defeat of the season... but they're still 15 points clear of second—paced manchester united at the top of the table. joe lynskey watched the match. this is the era of the super fixture, the games that define the best of the big six. stopping manchester city seems to take divine powers. liverpool had to do it without their superstar defender. but to pave the cracks in the back, the reds got on the front foot, oxlade—chamberlain got the breakthrough moment. the eighth minute would never settle this match. city rarely go behind, when they do, they respond. liverpool would return from the break with a more ruthless streak. they went back in front through roberto firmino, and when sadio mane increased the lead, this felt like their moment. they came unbeaten, but now city were unravelling.
7:34 pm
salah's precision put it beyond them. from invincible to vulnerable, but pep guardiola's side had a flourish, two goals in ten minutes made it a frantic finish. 30 without defeat, but this was one game too far. the blues will surely win the league still, but with such dominance, one defeat feels historic. in this thrilling season of top six meetings, this match was most extraordinary. wow! what a game, two teams, full throttle. it is possible that yesterday was a historic game, we will talk about that in 20 years when we watch it back. because it looks like they will not lose another one. big respect for their performance and for what we did today.
7:35 pm
liverpool always demand a lot, you make a mistake and they punish you. with salah, oxlade—chamberlain, it is a team of quality, to run and to make fast counterattacks. but, hopefully we can learn from that of the future. it's been another disappointing day for arsenal, who are now five points adrift of fifth—placed tottenahm in the premier league, after losing 2—1 at bournemouth this afternoon. and in his post—match press conference, the arsenal manager arsene wenger confirmed that their star player alexi sanchez could leave the club in the next 48 hours. nick parrott has more... there is as much drama off the pitch as on it for the gunners. their manager is still serving a touchline ban and he left alexis sanchez on the bench with the chilean forward trying to secure a move away from the club.
7:36 pm
they beat bournemouth 3—0 in september with sanchez only involved as a late substitute. they could not claim going behi% but after the interval they came to put things right. after six minutes they got in front. that might have made arsenal feel more comfortable, given they have never lost to bournemouth. if they were complacent it proved costly as callum wilson continued his run of scoring every time he has faced arsenal. less than five minutes later, they were blown away. ayew with the first goal for bournemouth to lead them away from the relegation zone and pile yet more pressure on their manager. we make mistakes, that we cannot afford at that level. overall, from upstairs, we did not create enough chances. no alexis sanchez.
7:37 pm
i presume he was available? in the transfer period anything can happen at any minute. that is why i decided i wanted to focus on just the game. does it mean you think his situation will be resolved quickly? yes. do you know where he will end up? no. i don't know. the top two women's teams in the country manchester city and chelsea played out a tight contest in the semi—finals of the conti cup... and it's the holders city who edged the win 1—0 — new signing nadia nadim with the winning goal. they'll play arsneal women in the final in march after they beat reading 3—2. the announcement of england women's new manager could be drawing closer. former manchester united and england full—back phil neville, is a leading contenderfor the role. following the sacking of mark sampson in september, the fa had hoped to appoint someone by the end of 2017 — but several potential candidates

dropped out of the running. leaving a chelsea or manchester city for england is not the change of it once was. clubs are investing a lot, andi once was. clubs are investing a lot, and i think some of us younger managers, the thought of playing quite a relevant qualifying games, no disrespect, where it is a shoo—in for england to qualify, isn't necessarily the greatest challenge freight carriage. some good news for england cricket fans. they've beaten australia in the opening one day international, with jason roy hitting 180. that's the highest one—day international score by an england player. and after the test side's recent thrashing in the ashes series, it was an impressive and much—needed five wicket victory by the tourists, as adam wild reports. for english cricket, a time to rebuild, recover, restore some respect and some reputations. a fresh start, then,

and it soon became a rather good one for england. early wickets falling. but this is australia and, after dominating all winter, they weren't about to go easy on their old rivals. a century from aaron finch helping them towards a total of 304. in days gone by, such targets were imposing. now, for this england one—day side, it was merely inviting. jason roy taking up the challenge with the kind of relish missed by england in recent months. brilliantly belligerent, he bludgeoned his way to a magnificent 100. taking the game away from australia, the highest ever one—day innings by an englishman. 180 for roy, and the damage was done. joe root, for once, the support act. 91 from him. the win, when it came, comfortable and, for english cricket, could scarcely have been more welcome. adam wild, bbc news. billy vunipola is set to miss england's six nations campaign
