bye— bye. hello, this is bbc news, the headlines... the prime minister looks for ways to bring her eu withdrawal agreement back to the commons for a fourth time. the deal which delivers on the referendum is the best way that's a people voted for and lost by the largest ever majority the government was defeated for the government was defeated in parliamentary history, put it back again then again and is now going to apparently try again next week. this is beyond ridiculous. today is the deadline for public sector bodies with more than 250 employees to declare the pay difference between their male and female workers, but thousands haven't yet done so. thousands of palestinians take part in protests on the border between gaza and israel to mark a year since weekly demonstrations began.

we look ahead to tomorrow's old firm — the first for neil lennon on his return to celtic. thanks forjoining us, on what has been an important day in the premier league. more on huddersfield's relegation injust a moment, first, manchester city are back on top. they cruised past struggling fulham who've now lost eight games in a row. pep guardiola's side go a point ahead of liverpool who play tomorrow. adam wild was watching. second from top, second from bottom, the division from the sides could be greater. there position laid out in black and white, for manchester city the surgery at morris although i helped by a flash of silver. putting
the defending championship ahead with the opening minute. last thing they needed was to get their visitors further opportunities, yet here it was. misplaced pass and sergio making them pay the price. the premier league at top score ruthless and showing little sympathy. the manager had anxiety and it was for the afternoon at least, misplaced. such was a comfort and control they had continued without key players. but while the margin of victory could, perhaps should have been greater the gap between the sides, clearer than ever. that relegation a little closer, manchester city top of that table once more. in thisa in this a little bit your pace, the red them in terms of the players who stay here and who are on holiday, and we are a national team in a different way the red and there is another way. but they were there and
this game is tricky, it's 12:30pm on a saturday and it's a sunny day, if the topic situation that's unusual, that's why unsatisfied and delighted that's why unsatisfied and delighted that the guys with what they had done. i think anyone standing in my position playing against them would what i did understand the challenges ahead, and it proved that way, difficult at times against the wild class players and they coached team, so class players and they coached team, so obviously at times i felt we were doing right, iverse please a price of the games you can see the early goal and it can be pretty daunting really. ben has moved to the big screen for us. so scott parker's fulham in trouble, but still up, unlike huddersfield. ben, they're now officially relegated. they have indeed... the writing has been on the wall
for a number of weeks — if not months — now. but huddersfield will play in the championship next season these fans had their eyes on other results today — they didn't go their wayjan siewert‘s side confirened to relegation. because of winds for southampton and burnley and, ultimately their defeat to crystal palace at selhurst park where it finished 2—0 roy hodgson's side taking the lead through a luka milivojevic penalty — and then patrick van aanholt — here's a stat... it means huddersfield equal the record for the earliest premier league relegation. only derby county — in 2008 — have previously been relegated from the premier league in march. i met imet and i met and get the minute, to be fair, this syntex mh energy, especially in the head. and, if you see the season, retrospectively, it was the front and at the back, not enough to stay in the best league. in the wild. but i think we've got
now, that task and a job to end the season as good as he can. i know it personally in life there is failure and success and they belong together, so we as a cloud must learn out of the failure and what we did wrong the season we definitely have to learn and do our best to solve it. and i think performance proved it anyway. and as i sat performance proved it anyway. and as isat in performance proved it anyway. and as i sat in the end, you have to go through all the details which have been defeated and prepared to come back stronger. he wants to figure out what went wrong it's been happening for a while. where did it go wrong for huddersfield this season then? ifi if i had the answer i'd be a good premier league manager. theyjust never really got going... conceded nine goals in theirfirst two premier league games 3—0 at home to chelsea... 6—1 away at manchester city their first win in the premier league didn't come until 5th of november — when they beat fulham david wagner then left as manager injanuary —
with the cloud bottom of the league. jan siewert came in... no instant bounce though... he didn't get his first league win till the end of february and these numbers here say it all. three winds, only five draws and you can't win if you don't score. they've only scored 18 in 32 premier league games. let's go back to the other end of the table. and ole gunar solksjear marked his permanent role with a win — albeit a lucky one against watford. how does that song go? ole's at the wheel then. how good does it feel? he's got that three year contract in hand... all smiles and, united returning to winning ways at old trafford this afternoon, following defeats at arsenal and wolves before the international break. they were made to work by watford though, far from their fluent best luke shaw combined well with marcus rashford for the opening goal. anthony martial doubling their lead in the second half watford scored a late goal
to give it a nervy end. but it finsihed 2—1 ole gunnar solskjaer up and running as the permanent manchester united boss — with three points. he's been talking to elidh barber. what do you think was lacking today? zip, urgency, 100% fitness because we did have the players out there that are still away from being hundred percent fit but this helped us hundred percent fit but this helped usa hundred percent fit but this helped us a lot. it put you back in the top bar, it's the goal and aim at the end of the season to finish so it's a good start. yes, definitely setting games left in the season we have to make sure we get 15 points would be enough. can't believe i didn't get her to sing the song. so, let's take a closer look at some of the other premier league results today. we've heard burnley and southampton won... burnley beating wolves, 2—0. conor coady‘s third own goal of the season — and dwight mcneil — earning them three points. southampton winning
by one goal at brighton. the other result to mention. wes morgan and jamie vardy on target as leicester beat bournemouth. this evening's game is at the london stadium... west ham xxxx everton. we'll keep you updated on that one... for now, that's the premier league. back to you lizzie, for the rest of today's football... there is a tie going on right now. leeds united have closed the gap on norwich at the top of the championship after coming from behind twice against millwall. two goals from pablo hernandez as they won 3—2. norwich are currettly in action against middlesbourgh. goal at the moment. the pick of the other results were aston villa's win over blackburn which gifts them a play off position and derby are also top six after a huge win over third from bottom rotherham. sheffield united stay third despite losing to bristol city and at the foot of the table — an important win for bolton away at qpr and bottom of the table ipswich lost at home to hull, they're now eight points adrift at the bottom.
in the scottish premiership. hearts are back—up to fifth after a second—half comeback against aberdeen. craig levein's men are just two points and one place behind the dons now. st mirren also came from a goal down against fellow strugglers dundee to move off the bottom of the table. they were winds as well for kilmarnock and motherwell... meanwhile, neil lennon takes charge of his first old firm derby since returning to celtic tomorrow. they could open up a 13 point gap on second—placed rangers with victory. their manager — steven gerrard — wants his rangers team to embrace the hostile atmosphere at celtic park, asjonathan sutherland reports. wonderful, brian. rangers victory in the last four derby, that that was the last four derby, that that was the end of december, looks like will you would get a real title race in scotland, victory on their side through them level of the celtic at the top apprenticeship table. three
months on, it's all very different. celtic by ten points clear of rangers, as they go into sunday's third from darby of the season, how big would a wind be. honourable, but you know, talking hypothetically. big would a wind be. honourable, but you know, talking hypotheticallym would be a hammer blow they do when 13 points with setting games to go that's a huge margin. yeah we take that. i went here on sunday would be significant for celtic on a number of levels and their quest for a title is in a row, and also the quest for an historic trouble trouble, it's also hugely important for a near line trouble, it's also hugely important fora nearline and trouble, it's also hugely important for a near line and he trouble, it's also hugely important fora near line and he is trouble, it's also hugely important for a near line and he is a celtic manager until the summer after that, it's up in the as and success for hand and imperative, but what about his counterpart? steven gerrard. the former liverpool captain under no illusions, gerard saying...
we heard them from the first game he wasn't too happy with that in the first one particularly, they came on the second half and perform better. you live for that, going into a game where the team is outstanding. as a lwa ys where the team is outstanding. as always in this fixture, nothing is guaranteed. looking forward to that one. to rugby union... scottish hopes in the champions cup have ended, after both edinburgh and glasgow were knocked out at the quarter final stage. edinburgh were beaten by munster at murrayfield in the days first game — while glasgow were dispatched by saracans. the bbc‘s rugby correspondent chris jones is at allianz park. this is another vintage performance, because of 2016 and 2017 when they won the champions cap, the glass got 56 points for 27 to set up a last
for a meeting with monster, more from that man a moment but let's find out how they reached that stage by battling past edinburgh coming as a story of the game. scott had a lively disappointing six nations cloud rugby in better shape, two sides in the quarterfinals for the first time. edinburgh threw themselves at my stiffer quarter of an hour but to no avail that by getting away and needless penalty. keith was the first to respond and he breezed through uncontested. munster have one of the best defence in europe, but picked it attached to it failed as christine dived over, first expressed top and in a 10—7 edinburgh advantage penalties exchanged as the host of to keep the momentum. i member a exchanged as the host of to keep the momentum. i membera price to charging, but the two timeliness defence held firm and there was ten minutes to go which they broke through and ea rl‘s minutes to go which they broke through and earl's registered second scrub the afternoon, it was
converted getting irish aside for point buffer all her napping for edinburgh, but they ran that esteem. munster move into the semifinals once again. it was only a few months ago where they needed, but not repeated today they needed, but not repeated today they blocked out with a drive, but that was as good as a guide for the visitors ruthless powerful precise data from saracens, they scored a seven times in all, leaving millions continued his grandson winning form with a couple while england was in top form, he scored one of the tries and was named nine of the match. they had to reshuffle the back lined owen farrell next again as he awaited the birth of his first child, but alex stepped into my half and kicked at 21 points as saracens didn't missa and kicked at 21 points as saracens didn't miss a trick. munster it is beenin didn't miss a trick. munster it is been in coventry, but on this
evidence, i hard to imagine that final new cancel next month without their man. there are two more quarter finals to play — the all french affair between racing and toulouse is tomorrow and there is an all irish game going on at the momen, with champions leinster hosting ulster. it was ulster who took an early lead when leinster fly—half ross bryne's kick was charged down, all kieran treadwell gathered the loose ball to slide over. but byrne made amends just five minutes later, feigning a pass outside before ediving over to score himself. he missed the conversion both sides have two penalties each time i lead at the break with 13—11. still to come on sportsday... callum's commonwealtcolla pse comeback... hawkins hopes to prove a point at the london marathon — his first since missing out on a medal in australia... ferrari have put their disappointing opening race of the season in australia behind them by locking out the front row of the grid
to get a medal for to get a medalfor a major championship. ferrari have put their disappointing opening race of the season in australia behind them by locking out the front row of the grid for tomorrow's bahrain grand prix. and if sebastian vettel thought his biggest rival this season would be world champion lewis hamilton, he might be wrong. nick parrott reports... monica lake claire has come of age, two years ago he was racing and formula to her now at 21 years and 166 days, he is the second youngest driver to claim pull in formula 1. he impressed during the first season with earning the move to ferrari, he pushed the full—time champion and end opening race in australia, and now he put his team—mate in the clarity topped the time sheets throughout qualifying and on the first run in the final session he equalled his track record, and the gemini one attempt to beat it but
failed. to rub salt in the wounds, he batted it to claim the record as his own. he's learning as quickly as his own. he's learning as quickly as his driving. the last race i was not very happy with my qualifying mistakes, i really worked hard to try and not make the same mistakes here, and yeah, seems we did quite a good job front lookout. and yeah extremely happy. with the battle behind them, lewis hamilton is that on the grid. he did such an incredible job congratulations to him it was close between me and sebastian, the last lap sometimes left behind of the whole thing is that, tomorrow is more important, and will be interesting to see how we do will have a good fight. he'll hope they are too busy battling to stop and claiming that there is —— at first win. let's check some of today's other main sports stories... in formula one's feeder series —
f2 — mick schumacher picked up points on debut... mick — the sun of seven time f1 champion michael — made a final lap pass to put him up to eighth in bahrain. that means he'll start tomorrow's sprint race on pole. next week, he'll drive an f1 car for the first time as he tests for ferrari. adam yates remains second in the tour of catalunya. he finished in the main bunch on the penultimate stage as australian michael matthews took a narrow sprint victory on the line. racing's flat season is officially underway, and auxerre won the first big race — the lincoln handicap at doncaster. ridden by james doyle the 5—2 favourite looks a star of the future. and hellen obiri has become the first woman to win outdoors, indoors, and cross—country world individual titles at a senior level. the kenyan won the women's race at the world cross country championships in denmark. joshua cheptegei became the first ugandan to win the senior men's title. the final of the women's miami open is currently ongoing and it looks
like an upset is on the cards. former world number one karolina pliskova is a set down and trailing in the second. her opponent, 22—year—old australian ashleigh barty, broke back against pliskova and went on to take the first set in a tie break, winning that in dominant fashion. the world number 11 is currently 5—3 up in the second set and pliskova is serving to stay in the match. roger federer will face john isner in the men's final in miami. federer thrashed 18—year—old dennis shapov—olov in straight sets, to tee up the final, which federer is looking forward too. well i know what to expect, that he will not miss 90 serves. he's got an amazing serve, one of the best in the game forever, so it's really ha rd to the game forever, so it's really hard to play against him. match point last time i played against and was tough, and i'm a big fan of his, he's got i really enjoy watching a
plan of some guys don't. you really enjoy watching them play?|j plan of some guys don't. you really enjoy watching them play? i love it, i love watching big servers that they're going to ace every second and third, it's exciting because if i penalty shoot out in soccer, it's just the same attendance i do enjoy it, for me i'll be the goalie, and some by sunday i try my best and try to get as many balls back as possible and hope we have a good match i'm very excited to play him because he had a tough match against felix today and i was awesome performance by him. we can now speak to tennis journalist stephanie myles. thank you for joining us, i was thinking quite an old school final relay, hannah gets better, both of them, is no serving, could you trip him that you think? he could come i what would be interesting is that fedor was rambling on and the interview of how he loves the service, but it's a lot
of nonsense he was saying that, but he has not played is near and three and a half years and i look to see when the last time wise he played the other giant server, and he has a great record on night and i had been four years ago, so he might like watching big service, be he hasn't had recent experience playing against them, so it'll be interesting to see of course, is there is the defending champion he knows what there is to have that championship, it's hard to see what's going to happen, if you could predict this, we went to be working as high for a living that's for sure. you said that federer is rambling on, he really is the ultimate tennis politician, why is he still doing this what drives him, he still doing this what drives him, he does need to earn more money up with anything any more like you still playing? you know, in the case of someone like him who came from comparable circumstances, it was neverin comparable circumstances, it was never in attendance was never really about how much money could he make,
he was obviously brilliant idea, and competitive, he is a thing about impressed and i look at the lease playing, especially 37, physically he's a marble, he looks healthy and fast and all of those things, but the other thing is he's a competitor, so the match against last night was a proof of that he almost gets double on debt to play the young guys, especially. and more often than not, with rare exceptions he beats them, so he likes challenges and he can afford to fly around the world in a private jet bring his kids, his wife is fully on board and so why not keep doing it, la salle board and so why not keep doing it, lasalle salle to just sit around and ta ke lasalle salle to just sit around and take the kids to school and do some charity? that isn't going to be anything in his life that's going to be as rewarding as adrenaline seeking to find which is what he's doing right now. i thank you, stephanie. we shall see who winds the miami open. rory mcilroy has been beaten to a place in the world matchplay quarterfinals by tiger woods. this was the first time they'd
played each other in matchplay. woods kept his nerve in the deteriorating conditions in austin texas to win by 2&1 after 17 holes. he'll play lucas bjerregaard later today. the round of 16 wasn't kind to the british players left. world number twojustin rose was beaten two up by kevin na. the american will face open champion francesco molinari. the italian took out britain's paul casey by 5&1; earlier today. here's one for you, if you're currently in training for the london marathon injust under a month's time. you did it? last year. among the elite runners will be great britain's callum hawkins? who'll be running his first marathon since he collapsed in exhaustion at last year's commonwealth games. he's been training at altitude in america — and our olympic sports reporter david mcdaid has been to meet him.
in the snow covered hills of arizona, he's clocking up the miles. it's a very different scene from a year ago, it's a very different scene from a yearago, and it's a very different scene from a year ago, and the sweltering heat and australia. this is a guy in real distress, he's on the side of the road and i hope that they can get someone road and i hope that they can get someone to him quickly. little more than a someone to him quickly. little more thana mile someone to him quickly. little more than a mile from becoming champion, he succumbed it to the extreme conditions. it's like going in a car that's been sitting in the heat all day itjust hit me in the last thing irememberwas day itjust hit me in the last thing i remember was putting every ounce of effort to get back on my feet, and just not being able to it was like i was drunk. can you reflect, what did you think about it?|j like i was drunk. can you reflect, what did you think about it? i was just guided, i felt like i missed one of the best opportunities that i would ever get to get a metal, for a major championship. he has not taken another marathon since that racing gold coast, but he hopes by training here at 7000 feet above sea level he
can geta here at 7000 feet above sea level he can get a better himself when he makes us come in london. how's your body now and how are you running?” had a session at a high altitude at the day, it's a pretty good. 2000 of the day, it's a pretty good. 2000 of the sea level, you do feel so much better. when you look at the london marathon is a comeback how do you think you feel when you're in at the starting line? i have a lot to prove to myself that it's still there and it hasn't been any damage, i don't wa nt it hasn't been any damage, i don't want to be known for the boy who fell ever, i want to be known as the guy who won the metals and runs a quick time. so london is a chance to reset and make new memories, and perhaps banish old ones. good luck to him, quicker than our times. quick update, delete game this evening, i was ten hope to ever attend are still trailing by two goals. about 20 minutes left of the game. we will have that result
coming up and another round up of the sports just —— we will see you then. hello, changing the field at the weather this weekend, still largely dry and sunny, buy it a field called avenue behind the web and find, that: there is already established across scotland and northern ireland, wintry showers eating in here, but despite having reached 19 degrees in the south, early this afternoon, but whether frank will bring cold air as well. you see the front with the dividing line between the one and chilly air, also getting a few splashes of rain and drizzle continuing for the rest of the day, a contrast temperature because despite french on filing, the only see about eight or 9 degrees compared with 18 and 18 and 19 and asi compared with 18 and 18 and 19 and as i say early this afternoon across southern half of the uk, the process
of change will continue as we go through the night. what will change however is the amount of breeze and wintry showers in the north, brisk breeze and lower levels across tom price shetland, will tend to ease away. but when it tends to easily through the night while * what frank continues to sink its way slowly stopped, we hope that will be enough cloud in the sack to prevent too many frost issues here, but for many of us much colder tonight and notably self and northern ireland and northern england and scotland, widespread frost tomorrow morning and having lost iran bad because clocks are going forward, and of course it's mother's day as well so much to a mothering sunday. but as i said earlier, still high ruling the roost is still dry. still very usable weather for getting out and about it's just that it could be just a little on the dark side on the south, if you showers this evening but still some drizzle on the system first thing in the morning, but granted battle tend to let the cloud and it's dry and
reasonably bright, but that's about the sunshine for the north, fairweather cloud later wintry day, he wish i was feeling pleasant well in the south as well as my client, cooler air, quite a brisk wind to contend lead which will accentuate the chill, temperature is only 11 for most and could respecting a 1k and the price out. and following that for tomorrow night, at undersized guys it'll be much colder, cold enough for widespread frost and we keep temperatures below paras frost and we keep temperatures below par as we start the new work week, we begin april with april showers as average as more on the website including the whining. —— warnings.
