coach sergio conceicao eventually substituted him and later called what happened to his player outrageous. in italy, it's a three horse race for the title as lazio came from behind to move above inter into second place. it all started well for inter who went ahead through ashley young's first half goal, his first in serie a since signing from manchester united but a stefan de vrij foul on ciro immobile allowed the league's top scorer to slot in his 26th goal in 2a games. five minutes after the break and lazio got their winner amidst a scramble in the box. sergej milinkovic—savic slotting home 20 minutes from time as inter fell to only their second defeat all season. lazio are nowjust a point behind the leadersjuventus who beat brescia 2—0. cristiano ronaldo was rested but paulo dybala was an able deputy as he gavejuve the lead. juan cuadrado made it two in the second half after a well—worked move.

by celta vigo to move them a point clear of barcelona at the top of la liga. having gone behind early on, toni kroos swept home from 16 yards to put real leveljust after half time before a sergio ramos penalty put the home side in front on 65 minutes. but five minutes from the end, santi mina scored a late equaliser to give celta vigo a point. in sunday's other games, osasuna beat athletic bilbao 1—0, a late suso goal earnt a point for sevilla as they drew 2—2 with espanyol. eibar against real sociedad was postponed because a landfill site collapsed near eibar‘s stadium causing fires and poor air quality. tottenham are within a point of the champions league places after a last gasp win at aston villa in the english premier league. jose mourinho's side left it late as they won 3—2 to go fifth in the table behind chelsea, with son heung—min scoring in the 94th minute.
i don't think they deserved to win but they did not deserve to lose. i think they were good and they gave us think they were good and they gave usa think they were good and they gave us a real football match, a think they were good and they gave us a realfootball match, a real fight. they play to win and they play to get a point in the last ten oi’ play to get a point in the last ten or 15 minutes but their attitude was to win the game and that is fantastic. that is the reason why the game was so, so good. the manner of it in making that mistake in the last seconds of the game, you know, we were tired in the la st game, you know, we were tired in the last ten minutes and gave them a little too much ball. we showed a lot of personality today and that is why —— lot of personality today and that is why — — what lot of personality today and that is why —— what i asked for from the players. the break had us good and the performance showed that we certainly did not deserve to lose again. arsenal moved up to 10th and are six points behind their north london rivals tottenham after a 4—0 win over newcastle. pierre—emerick aubameyang and alexandre lacazette
were amongst the goalscorers for the home side we talked about putting drawers into a win and the margins we could improve to translate into more points and it was going to be very important after the break, the first game at home, to gain confidence like we did today so i am very pleased with that. england's cricketers pulled off the fourth highet chase of all time in international t20 cricket, as they beat south africa in their third and final match in centurion to win a thrilling series 2—1. heinrich klaasen had top scored for the hosts with 66 as they reached 222 for 6 from their twenty overs. but chasing a daunting target of 223 to win — half centuries from jos buttler and jonny bairstow and a blistering 57 from 22 balls from eoin morgan — which included seven sixes — got thejob done with 5 balls to spare.
an amazing game of cricket and another one in a fantastic series. we have had unbelievably high school cricket throughout the three games that we have played but today, in particular, the series decider, tension was up in the game, particularly when the host side posted a substantial score. it is a batting friendly ground and i gave myself some time and just the fact i was able to do that was due to the success was able to do that was due to the success of the top order. so then andi success of the top order. so then and i got something going on we targeted the far side and i am really ha p py targeted the far side and i am really happy with my form. adam scott has won his first pga tour event in four years at the genesis invitational. world number one rory mcilroy was the joint—leader at the start of the day, but fell away finishing in a tie for fifth. scott ended up carding a one under par round of 70 to win by two shots. it is the 14th victory of scott's career but his first since the wgc cadillac championship in 2016.

four people were suspended and subsequently fired for using electronics to work out what pitch would be delivered during 2017 and 2018. manfred admits he thought about stripping the astros of their 2017 world series title. 0nce once you have a situation in which the 2017 world series will always be looked at as something different, whether or not you put an asterisk 01’ whether or not you put an asterisk orans whether or not you put an asterisk oran sforthe whether or not you put an asterisk or an s for the trophy back, i don't think it makes that much difference. i think we did what we should do. we found the facts and were transparent. 0nce found the facts and were transparent. once you go down that road of changing what happens on the field, ijust don't know how you decide where you stop. at the skijumping world cup, home favourite, stefan kraft won the men's flying hill individual event to hold onto his overall lead in the standings on sunday.
really impressive stuff from kraft who glides through the air for 9 seconds, before landing in front of a full home crowd cheering his name. there was a dramatic finish to the women's world cup slalom event in slovenia. petra vilhova won in style, but it could have been so different if sweden's anna sven larsson who held a huge lead of over a second, hadn't caught an edge and skidded down the slope face first, just before the finish line, leaving her with her head in her hand. that fall gave the victory to vilhova who's now won her third straight women's world cup slalom race. she now leads the slalom standings by 20 points ahead of mikaela shiffrin. you can get all the latest sports news at our website — that's bbc.com/sport. but from me chetan pathak and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye.
hello there. the very heavy rain that storm dennis brought us, over a months worth across the hills of southern wales, well, that's left some very nasty flooding conditions. we still have four severe flood warnings in force along stretches of the river teme between ludlow, in shropshire, and eardiston, in worcestershire. it was only thanks to this temporary flood defences, put up by the environment agency, that these properties in bewdley stayed away from the floodwaters. the river severn just about being held back. and talking of flood warnings, we have over 300 flood warnings still in force across the uk. and for some communities, the flooding will get worse before it gets better, as all of those flood waters slowly work down the river catchments. and talking of rain, well, we've got more of that to come over the next few hours, particularly so in scotland, as storm dennis passes quite close to the north. it is also going to become very windy for a time. mind you, it's not the only place that will see
strong winds — around the irish sea coast and the coast of southern england, we could get gusts of 60 or 70 miles an hourfora time. so a blowy, blustery start to the day on monday. a day of sunshine and showers. the showers always most frequent across north—western areas. as well, they'll come along with hail and thunder. but it's a day where no—one is immune from seeing an odd heavy downpour. temperatures 8—11, feeling colder than that, giving the strength of the wind. now, for the rest of the week, areas of low pressure will be pinged across the atlantic so we we'll get cool days, and then the weather turns a bit milder, then a bit cooler, then a bit milder. all the while, it's gonig to stay quite windy, and pretty unsettled as well. now, here's tuesday's weather forecast. we've got a trough, this line of rain, pushing eastwards across the country. that will mean that we'll have some pretty heavy downpours with the risk of thunder. and as that clears, colder air follows. so for scotland, northern ireland and northern england, it's going to start to get colder — temperatures around 6 or 7 degrees. and over the hills of scotland,
we'll see some of the showers following turn to snow. now, the winds finally calm down for a time tuesday night, as this ridge of high pressure builds in. that is ahead of this next weather system that's coming through for wednesday. wednesday then, starting off on a quiet note, with bright or sunny spells, particularly across eastern areas. it then clouds over in the west, with more rain on the way. the rain getting into northern ireland, western parts of scotland and england, wales as well. temperatures, they should be rising through the day and probably rising through the night across western areas, by a few degrees, as that milder air continues to push in. that's wednesday's forecast. the rest of the week — thursday further showers, turning a bit cooler. friday, more outbreaks of rain are on the way and it will get windier with gales 01’ even severe gales. but for the next day or two flooding is our major concern.
