6:33 pm
is a tall order. we had late drama at old trafford, crystal palace beat manchester united for the first time in the premier league. tammy to the rescue at norwich. a double from abraham gives chelsea their first win of the season also coming up in the programme... warrington beat saints at wembley to lift the challenge cup for the first time in 7 years. and manu tuilangi stars as england score eight tries at twickenham, racking up their biggest ever win over ireland. good evening, plenty of drama from the premier league coming up. and we'll bring you the latest from anfield where liverpool are playing arsenal
6:34 pm
in the late kick off. there has been a goal. but we start at headingley, and the third ashes test. after that calamitous first innings when england were bowled out for 67, they have now been set 359 to win. if they lose then australia will retain the ashes. our sports correspondent andy swiss is at headingley. andy, the odds were stacked against england when both openers went cheaply again, but we had a glimmer of hope! ya holly, they have still given themselves a chance just a few hours ago, because australia set this daunting targets, 359. frankly, their hopes seemed over, and they got off to another terrible start. worry burns, the first man to go, he was caught and slipped by david warner for just was caught and slipped by david warner forjust seven. was caught and slipped by david warner for just seven. so was caught and slipped by david warner forjust seven. so england
6:35 pm
off to a bad start, and things soon we nt off to a bad start, and things soon went from bad to worse after that, because next to go was jason roy. went from bad to worse after that, because next to go wasjason roy. he was bowled by absolute beauty from pat cummings. england 15 for two at that point. so at that point, england really seemed to be no way back for them, once jason roy was out. but they have recovered well. joe root and joe danley putting on a good partnership. a century stand, joe root reaching his half—century. that gave the stands here something to cheer about at last because they haven't had a loss over the last 24 hours or so. —— haven't had a lot. england was starting to believe that perhaps they could do something special. they lost a wicket in the la st special. they lost a wicket in the last half— hour special. they lost a wicket in the last half—hour or so. special. they lost a wicket in the last half— hour or so. joe special. they lost a wicket in the last half—hour or so. joe danley special. they lost a wicket in the last half— hour or so. joe danley out for 50. clocked behind off his glove off the polling ofjosh hazelwood. sojoe joe off the polling ofjosh hazelwood. so joe joe danley is outcome off the polling ofjosh hazelwood. sojoe joe danley is outcome of off the polling ofjosh hazelwood. so joe joe danley is outcome of the end of that really impressive stand
6:36 pm
between him and joe root. then stokes has now come into bats, some contesting bowling out there, particularly from the spinner, and a thin line, and from josh hazelwood. but england is hanging on in there. ali here, so a huge not forjoe root. he's just up to 70. whatever happens over the next six sessions and a bit, we know there are some big flaws in the top of that england order, and we can't see jason roy playing test cricket anytime soon, can we? it seems unlikely i would think, ollie. joe burns has showed character so far, he got that terrific century, 50 in the last test, he struggled here. jason roy has really struggled throughout. so successful as england's world cup winning team. but his skills as a impressive as they are, they haven't really sauntered to the test arena. he hasn't shown the patients, the restraint that you need at the top of the order. even trevor bayliss,
6:37 pm
the england coach, admitted he's at number three or the england coach, admitted he's at numberthree or number the england coach, admitted he's at number three or number four, the middle of the bats, but he's not really an opening batter. it's really an opening batter. it's really ha rd really an opening batter. it's really hard to see how england continue with it. he got a really good ball this afternoon from pat cummings, but really six failures out of sick so far in this series. you would think england now have to look elsewhere. in was our correspondent at headingley. 149 for three on day three. many thanks indeed. the drama doesn't stop at the asters. the premier league next, and there was a huge shock at old trafford as one of the longest unbeaten runs was ended. joe lynskey can give us all the details. liverpool and arsenal, we will bring you right up to date to that in a moment. but first of all, this result for manchester united. they we re result for manchester united. they were beaten 2—1 to crystal palace today will remind those supporters more of the dark days they've had since sir alex ferguson left the club, and all those unwanted records for defeats at old trafford.
6:38 pm
this is the first time crystal palace have beaten manchester united in the premier league era — their first win at old trafford in 30 years. it started with jordan ayew's goal to open the scoring in the first half. united really trying to reinvent their defence this season but they let ayew run completely clear on david de gea's goalto make it1—0. now there were so many talking points in this game, not least the fact that just like monday night at wolves, united were awarded a penalty. paul pogba was racially abused after missing that spot kick at molineux, this time marcus rashford had no hesitation picking it up, but he struck the post. saw the ball ricochet, and crystal palace got safety there. so it stayed 1—0. now rashford might've thought that miss might not make the headlines after all when dan james equalised
6:39 pm
with a curling effort in the 89th minute, but in stoppage time patrick van aanholt saw his shot squirm through david de gea and into the back of the net for 2—1. so despite united spending £130 million on defenders in the summer they still have the same problems, and while this is a brilliant result for palace, for the home fans at old trafford it's the first sign this season of how much work they need to do. you —— we felt the same earlier in the week, today we created enough to win the game. but then you, you are playing against a team, you've got to defend as well, and we defended poorly three times today, and it cost us two goals. i think that to come to terms with the fact that teams in the lower half of the league are going to come here, think they are organised, and
6:40 pm
put upa here, think they are organised, and put up a fight that we put up today, they are going to be hard to break down, and if they are lucky like we are, they will have players on the field that can hurt them on the counter attack, and that's what i think they will have to prepare for here at old trafford for the long pa rt here at old trafford for the long part of the season. so that the big story from the 3 o'clock kick offs, but we have another match this evening that stands out as well. liverpool and arsenal the two premier league sides with two winds out of two. they playing right now. at half—time, liverpool are in front. joel matip, the central defender rising highest at the corner. to show you the pictures of them going off at half—time. he rose highest for liverpool in front of the first half to make it 1—0. the type of goal liverpool can score from with the heights they have at the back. that made it 1—0. arsenal though have had their chances, nicolas pepe, their 72 million pound summer signing missing three chances. but at half—time 1—0, jurgen klopp's unbeaten he scored a penalty did make it 2—0 for liverpool. so the late game in the primarily, the first one on
6:41 pm
saturday it was the first win for frank lanford, as chelsea manager. 3- frank lanford, as chelsea manager. 3— to victory at norwich city was harder, and against this newly promoted side. a frantic first half full of goals before the decisive moment came through this man's winning goal. this is tammy abraham, what a moment for him, because he was racially abused on social media when he missed a penalty in chelsea super cut final defeat to liverpool. with the story of this match, here is... after an impressive win against newcastle, carol road was in a party mood once again. but today was frank lampard's chance to take his first win as chelsea manager. tammy abraham got the nod over olivia shrewd, and he repaid that faith. the oa support had barely sat down before an unselfish cross from pookie met todd ca ntwell, unselfish cross from pookie met todd cantwell, the unselfish cross from pookie met todd ca ntwell, the local unselfish cross from pookie met todd cantwell, the local boy's first premier league goalfor cantwell, the local boy's first premier league goal for the canaries. inside 17 minutes, mason
6:42 pm
mount scored in derby last season, he helped himself to another. as a manager, different shirt. excellent reflexes from tim. but when pookie got gold side of the defence, there could only be one outcome. his faith of the season, and another twist in the part. chelsea's second—half domination came through though as abraham doubled up. it would be the last goal to make the score sheet though, as the ar overturned kurt tumours effort declaring a foul on kroll. norwich showed where they belong to in this league, but it was lampard belong to in this league, but it was lampa rd today. took belong to in this league, but it was lampard today. took his first chelsea win with their youngest premier league side in 25 years. it feels good, because this is a tough place to come. the performances at times they've given us performances at times they've given us what we might've deserved in the first few games, but today we got what we deserved. we could've won by more, we dominated big parts of the game, created a lot of chances against a very strong side, so i'm very happy with them. there's a first defeat of the season for newly promoted
6:43 pm
sheffield united in the top flight. they went down 2—1 to leicester city, and those blades weren't happy at all with leicester's opening goal scorer. jamie vardy is a sheffield boy but a huge fan of their city rivals wednesday as a boy, came through their youth system. he made sure the united fans knew about it with his celebration too. the home side did equalise in the second half with a first premier league goal for their summer signing oli mcburnie, but then harvey barnes scored with one of the cleanest strikes you'll see all weekend to make it 2—1. but it was a performance from sheffield united that their manager says they can't tolerate again. i've said to the players afterwards, clapping them off after they've put a shift in, for me that is a given.
6:44 pm
you know? you should have had a little bit of a moment, because we kept giving the ball away cheaply, and we didn't play as well as i know we can do. so you know, a cheerfor a bit of effort, don't really take a box for me. we'll quickly round up the two other three o'clock games but they were both where summer signings showed perhaps exactly what they'll be worth to west ham and southampton. the hammers were 2—1winners at watford thanks to two goals from their record £45 million summer signing sebastian haller — they bought him from eintracht frankfurt of the bundesliga — big powerful front man who scored 17 goals in germany last season. will have to leave you for sports daily and handy back to our collea g u es daily and handy back to our colleagues at bbc news. thank you for watching. we are just going to break away from sports day, because as you can see here, we are in the south of france at the g7
6:45 pm
summit. and this is the formal welcomes. a manual their welcoming first stop this evening, donald tusk. they have actually met each other already today. they had a meeting on the sidelines as they have seen each other, but for the next few minutes, this is their formal ceremony. the formal welcoming. so macron arrives just a few minutes ago. he was first to arrive, obviously as the host, and now this is the beginning of the procession of formal welcomes, formal photographs they are, that macron will be undertaking for the next few minutes. the location is in the south of france, the sun has been shining there all day, the weather is very pleasant. but the specific location is the esplanade lighthouse, chosen, obviously partly because of its picturesque, picturesque location. you can see they are being pointed out now, as
6:46 pm
i'm sure he will go through the various monuments in the area, the sea various monuments in the area, the sea and the skyline. but after this, the photo opportunities, then of course the tricky business of trying to get together and pull some international cooperation, some international cooperation, some international unity from the various leaders who are there. donald tusk representing the european union, the seven nations, the uk, us, canada, japan, france, germany, and italy, all together for the meeting, which formally starts this evening with a formally starts this evening with a formal meal after these photo opportunities. when it comes to donald tusk, what we have already heard from him today. he made a fairly interesting intervention this morning. he held a press conference. and he said a number of things, he's at first of all, and relating to brexit, that he was happy and open
6:47 pm
to listening to prime minister boris johnson and trying to work on a workable, realistic solution to brexit. but, he then coined a phrase, i think we will hear lots of from now on, he said he hoped that borisjohnson from now on, he said he hoped that boris johnson wouldn't go from now on, he said he hoped that borisjohnson wouldn't go down in history as" mr no—deal". he said he hoped history wouldn't remember borisjohnson hoped history wouldn't remember boris johnson as" hoped history wouldn't remember borisjohnson as" mr no—deal" over brexit, hoping therefore there is some kind of arrangement that the uk doesn't withdraw from the european union with some kind of deal. and he goes on to say that he will play no part, and would not co—operate or facilitate the exiting of the uk from the european union without a deal. so he is still hopeful, and pointing towards the british prime minister, signalling that a deal must be done for the uk to withdraw from the european union. so it donald tusk‘s intervention this morning at a press conference, he
6:48 pm
has been going on with meetings on the sidelines throughout the day, and donald tusk has now been formally welcomed by macron, and now we are having the next arrival. you can see emanuel macron and his wife. and at the same ritual we are seeing right now with the italian prime minister. we will see this repeated now a minister. we will see this repeated nowafaira minister. we will see this repeated now a fair a few times, emmanuel macron will do the hand kissing, the sightseeing, the handshaking, when they have arrived, the rest of the procession will get under way, and the real proceedings will get under way. but for now though, let's handy back to holly into ollie on sports day. many thanks indeed. what have you missed, another liverpool goal, now leading arsenal three nail in the
6:49 pm
premier league at anfield. about midway through the second half, but plenty of other sports news to bring you today. yes, we will go to wembley next, in the showpiece of the by rugby league season is of course the challenge cup final. for the second yearin challenge cup final. for the second year ina challenge cup final. for the second year in a row, warrington were involved in an upset. beat themselves by the catalan dragons last year, this time around, they came on top against the runner league super league, adam wilde was there for us. i conditions here wembley, with a cup final with it the intensity to match, warrington putting behind the disappointment from last season, winning18—4 over at a very good scene tell inside. with me to talk to some of the action, robbie hunt, a man who knows what it's like to get his hands on that famous trophy. was it warrington good today, or st. helens not at their best? look, i think it was a mixture of both. i think it was a mixture of both. i think ultimately, with warrington being at their best. warrington played a really good disciplined game plan. very similarto
6:50 pm
played a really good disciplined game plan. very similar to the way they played the semi final game against four or five weeks ago. they've completed their set at a very low error counter. great kicking game. world—class kicking game, putting the opposition under a lot of pressure. great line speed. really muscled up in the middle of the pack, and st. helens has really got some advantage over the course of the season. they are blowing through the super league. what they did today, with the warring tens did today, they bent fire with fire, they are big squat in the middle of they are big squat in the middle of the pack, they are muscled up, they took it to st. helens. once they got on top of st. helens, st. helens found it really hard to chase them down. warrington are an experienced team, they have won it before, they know how to win. and basically, once the wolves sunk their teeth in, they we re never the wolves sunk their teeth in, they were never going to let go. almost from the start, there were things to talk about, where there? a big called by the referee, the saints could have been ahead. that's right. a rubber kick was put through. in replay, in slow motion,
6:51 pm
you can see the ball was clearly placed down in what would've been try if the referee had referred to the video. but he didn't. one of the great things about robert hicks as a referee, he likes to keep the game flowing. in his minds eye, whether it was a hit or a line or something, he got the call wrong. he sought in life play. ithank he got the call wrong. he sought in life play. i thank you thought that the ball was bounced and not placed with downward control, and he made up with downward control, and he made up his mind on the spot and got the game flowing once again. everyone just cracked on. we can say it it could've had a detrimental effect, it may or may not have. it has a butterfly effect. we don't know exactly vent which direction it would have gone. ultimately though, warrington ahead in the gameplay, and they stuck to it. and like i said, once they got the game by the scruff of the net, i think st. helens struggled with coming up with the creativity to break them down. warrington, you know what, they left it all out there on the pitch, they
6:52 pm
have not played well in the super league over the last four weeks, this is probably why. they have had one eye on this game, they have invested everything into it. they are coming away with one of the major trophies of the season. robbie thank you so much forjoining us on bbc news. so there you have it, warrington putting behind them the disappointment of losing here in the disappointment of losing here in the final last year. of course more to come, st. helens code, and perhaps should, be crowned super league champions. a long way to go before that, for now, from wembley, it's warrington wolves who are the challenge cup winners. adam wilde there for us, the challenge cup final. we have had a couple more warm—up games we've had a couple more warm up games for the rugby world cup that starts next month. england look in pretty good shape, came on top against the runner league super league, adam wilde was 57—15 their biggesat win against ireland. they ran in eight tries at twickenham. that's a big blow to irelan'ds praparations, they could have gone ican i can tell you he is enjoying this pa rt i can tell you he is enjoying this part too much. this is a huge blow to ireland's's
6:53 pm
preparations, they could have gone top of the world rankings. at murrayfield, scotland avenged last weeks defaet to the french with a narrow 17—14 win. david domb reports. twickenham's final send off to england ahead of the world cup, ireland were the visitors, on top of the world rankings with a win. having shipped in early try, the remainder of the half was the show. he has run the perfect decoy, gaps created for slick quick passing. joe was steaming into the corner. driving into ireland again. this time the ball making its way over to elliott daily for the same outcome. his reward came right before half—time. england shifting the ball with ease. ireland does too slow to react. the leicester man crossing the line himself. and after the restart, it was more of the same. five second half tries, george cruz graham grabbing one, and shortly after, tom curry added a sixth. racing through the gears, driving right through the heart of the ireland defence.
6:54 pm
luke collin dickey adding the last. a statement of intent does intent from eddie jones side, and one more to come at stjames' park. 14 different players in the scotland line—up from this site, hammered by fran a week ago. the rematch at murray field had a near identical start. peter horn's lose pass straight into the arms of damien, already a try conceded in the opening minutes. munro added a second after a penalty to open up an 11 point lead, but suddenly, greg found a new level, and they had to be patient to get their first try of the afternoon. finn russel finding sean maitland to get over the line. the unlikely comeback was complete midway through the second half. chris harris burst through to put the hosts ahead. the skip all three of his kicks through the post, and scotland claimed their first win in five. it's a double—header with them to come before they travel to japan. david domb, bbc news. lets take a look at some
