heavy bursts mixed into that as well. elsewhere, should be a largely dry night with variable clouds, some clear spells. quite chilly out and maybe some distant fog developing. this is the pressure chart. this weather front draped across the north and west of scotland and northern ireland will produce quite a lot of cloud, some mist and merck and also outbreaks of rain. should eventually clear a way northwards. for much of the country, should be dry into the afternoon with some sunny spells was the best of the sunshine across the midlands into the southeast but consistently, 16 oi’ the southeast but consistently, 16 or 17 degrees and could set off an afternoon and evening shower here as well. bonfire night evening... for most of it will be dry. apart from the showers through central and northern areas. as we head on into tuesday, we look to the west. this next area of low pressure is likely to encourage into oui’ pressure is likely to encourage into our shores for tuesday and certainly
on wednesday, bringing increasingly wet and windy weather —— encroach on oui’ wet and windy weather —— encroach on our shores. quite a lot of cloud. somebody rain could be quite heavy. he further east you are, the better chance of staying dry and better chance of staying dry and better chance of staying dry and better chance of seeing sunshine. it's going to be very mild, southerly airflow. onto wednesday, that weather system pushes its way further eastwards, so you think it could be wet pretty much anywhere across the united kingdom for wednesday but i think the greater chance will be across southern and western parts with the odd heavy bursts mixed in. sunshine will develop on into the afternoon and it will be quite a windy day too. temperature wise, maybe not quite as high as what we started with a week off but still, 11—14 is pretty good for the time of year. for much of the upcoming week, it stood to the match it's a pretty mild. it will turn increasingly unsettled as we had to the week. hello, this is bbc news with shaun ley. the headlines... the businessman, arron banks,

leicester city are back on top of the premier league tonight. the champions dismantled southampton 6—1. an own goal from wesley hoedt put city ahead before sergio aguero made it two inside 12 minutes. his 150th premier league goal. david silva, a raheem sterling double and then one from leroy sane late on, handed city their second six one win of the season. danny ings pulling one back for saints from the spot. city remain unbeaten, two points clear. pep guardiola said afterwards it was not as straight forward as the score line suggested. the game is over, 90 minutes, it wasn't over,
not over because in the premier league, we were lucky to score in the first half. good finishing. the game was not over. during his time in charge at stamford bridge, ranieri was nicknamed the tinker man. their current boss is anything but. consistent selections have been rewarded with consistent results. they were unchanged against crystal palace and hoping to remain unbeaten this season when they were put in front after half an hour.
that failed to bring this encounter to life, though. another 20 minutes before there was another shot on target, this time from a player with his first league goal in 20 games to bring him palace level. it was a wake—up call for chelsea, who brought on eden hazard to get things going. the spaniard scored his and chelsea's second. just five minute later, pedro wrapped things up. i think we were a little bit in trouble. we neeedd some quality, personality. we were lucky today. eden was on the bench. so he was able immediately to change the match. so city on top, two points
clear and with a hugely superior goal difference, chelsea second and liverpool the only other unbeaten side, tottenham making up the top four. huddersfield, fulham and cardiff make up the bottom three — huddersfield and fulham meet tomorrow night which aleady looks like a crucial game for both sides in their fight for survival. leeds united have returned to the top of the championship after a 2—1win at wigan athletic. it was an emotional day at the dw stadium, as the club played their final game under the ownership of dave whelan. his family has sold the club to a far east consortium. it looked like it was going to be a fairytale send—off for the whelan family when reece james put them ahead inside the opening six minutes but leeds were back on level terms barely three minutes later, pablo hernandez finshing a fine move from the visitors. the comeback was complete with the second halfjust
a minute old. kemar roofe capitalising on a defensive mix—up to walk the ball into an empty net. so leeds move above norwich at the top due to their greater goal difference. just four points separate the top six. a late winner saw mid table aberdeen beat kilmarnock 2—1 in the scottish premiership. kilmarnock were looking for theirfirst home win against aberdeen since 2011 and they did take the lead through a kris boyd penalty, that was awarded after a foul by shay logan on chris burke. in the second half, bruce anderson flicked in niall mcginn‘s shot to level the scores before 19 year old lewis ferguson curled in this free—kick to give aberdeen all three points. women's super league leaders, arsenal beat birmingham 3—1
to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season. with seven wins in seven matches. after a goalless first half, jordan nobbs opened the scoring in the 58th minute. but bimingham pulled back level within a minute with this goal from emma follis. arsenal were awarded a penalty and danielle van donk put them back ahead and it was nobbs again late in to injury time who doubled her tally to help seal an seventh league win of the season for arsenal. second placed manchester city women also won, beating liverpool 3—nil — nikita parris with two goals to become the league's new all time leading goal scorer with 37 goals, surpassing eni aluko‘s record. get ready to see wayne rooney in an england shirt again — as the all time record goal—scorer for his country he play a farewell match against the united states later this month in support of his foundation england's all—time record goal—scorer, who now plays his club football in america for dc united, will face the united states at wembley
to earn his 120th international cap. the match will be called the wayne rooney foundation international in support of his charitable interests. in a statement, rooney said, "i am truly humbled and hugely excited to play for england at wembley again. i would like to thank gareth southgate and the fa for inviting me back and helping to support my foundation in the process. playing for england was the greatest honour of my career — so winning my 120th, and final, cap will be a particularly special moment for me. it's fitting that the match will be against the usa and i hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game." to rugby league, where england have won their series with new zealand — tommy makinson with a hat trick of tries at anfield.
it leaves them with two wins out of two, heading into teh final test of two, heading into the final test to come in leeds next sunday. david ornstein reports. anfield is among the most iconic sporting venues, normally a home to one of the biggest teams in club football, today, hosting two giants of international rugby league. a change in the type of action, though not the intensity of competition, as shown by new zealand's physical approach. england into an early lead, but it would not last long, with the opponents quickly crossing to take control, wounded by defeat in the first test last weekend, the kiwis were turning the table. england stood firm and turn defence into attack, resulting in a spectacular reply, as tommy makinson took to the air to level the scores on the verge of half—time. the quality of him as a finisher! after the break, a near carbon copy. anything you can do, we can do just as impressively. the men in black immediately hitting back
and regaining their grip on the contest. there was far less of a grip on the tempers of both teams, and while the disharmony seems to distract new zealand, england were energised. a moment of a finesse, makinson again on hand. back in the chess match. it was all square, all to play for. the final say was going to be from makinson. tommy makinson to finish! england were ecstatic, another sporting occasion for anfield to savour. justin rose has reclaimed golf‘s world number one ranking after victory at the turkish open. he came from three shots behind going into the final round to win in a play—off, both he and china's li haotong finished on 17 under. it's his 19th career win and lifts him back to the top of the rankings for the first
time since september. there was a surprise result in the final of the paris masters where the 22—year—old russian karen khachanov beat the world number one novak djokovic. khachanov, currently ranked number 18 in the world, had already defeated three top ten players on his way to the final. djokovic — a four time winner here — lost in striaght sets — 7—5 6—4. it's the russian‘s first masters 1000 title. djokovic had been on a 22 match winning run. we will have more later.
