KIDS FACING

CHILDREN are to be
stopped from scoffing
favourite treats under a
government crackdown.
Crackdown on fave snacks
Health bosses have issued
new guidelines warning parents to quit feeding their
youngsters snacks such as
Mars bars and crisps.
They say half the sugar con-
sumed by under-18s comes from
unhealthy snacks and drinks.
And Public Health England is
now telling parents to limit their
children to just two snacks worth
100 calories a day.
A single standard-sized Mars
bar alone contains 230 calories –
more than the daily recommended
limit. Public Health England
warned that on average, children
are consuming at least three unhealthy snacks and drinks a day.
Around a third of those consume four or more.
Dr Alison Tedstone, chief nutritionist for PHE, said: “The
true extent of children’s
snacking habits is greater
than the odd biscuit or
chocolate bar. Children are
having unhealthy snacks
throughout the day and parents have told us they’re
concerned.

The escape was made

Now, the report has been

Mr Mace said: “The detail

being a prisoner of war.
“The most interesting
thing about the report is
the fact there are all these

escape attempts which was
part of the debriefing
following the war and have
never been seen before.”

In Manchester, Blackpool, Aberystwyth,

Hundreds ignored weather warnings

One man ended his night out with a bandage wrapped around his head after a scuffle

Although most people enjoyed the festivities, some violence erupted and there were
several arrests.
Emergency services found themselves
over-run with 999 calls on one of their busiest nights of the year.
London Ambulance Service (LAS)
answered 337 calls in the first hour of
2018 with most being treated for boozerelated injuries and illnesses.
Almost 300 patients were treated by LAS
on New Year’s Eve, with paramedics
working from treatment centres to avoid
clogging up hospital A&E departments.
As some people woke up in cells yesterday

others nursed massive hangovers.

Warnings of
80mph wind
and flooding
® by PAUL DONNELLEY
BRITAIN enjoyed the calm
before the storm yesterday with hurricane-strength
winds set to strike today.
The New Year’s Day quiet will

“Don’t put yourself in unnecessary
danger trying to take storm selfies,”
she warned.
“If you’re travelling, don’t drive
through flood water.”
Bitterly cold winds are likely to strike
the country from the Arctic on Saturday which could also bring frost.
Bookies Coral are giving odds of 6-4
for January to be the coldest on
record.
Coral’s John Hill said: “It has been a
cold start to the New Year and the betting suggests temperatures aren’t
going to increase anytime soon as
the odds have been cut for this
month to end as the coldest January on record in the UK.
“With Storm Dylan continuing to
disrupt the nation, we are offering
just evens for the wind speed to
reach as high as 100mph in mainland
UK this week. And we are not ruling
out snowfall in London.”
Andy Page, the Met Office’s chief
forecaster, said: “The wind will pick
up again later.
“Today and Wednesday are expected
to be very windy across England and
Wales, with gales or severe gales in
places and national severe weather
warnings have been issued for these
strong winds.
“The gales, combined with locally
thundery downpours, may make driving difficult and cause disruption.”
Deputy chief forecaster Dan Harris
added that next weekend could bring a
return of colder conditions with a risk
of frost, ice and wintry conditions,
particularly in the north.
The fresh warnings come just a day

The Met Office has issued two weather warnings – just in time for the start
of the working week.
With torrential downpours set to
bash Britain tomorrow, people are
advised to batten down the hatches.
The rain could flood low-lying areas
and travel is likely to be disrupted as
people head back to work after the
Christmas and New Year break.
The Environment Agency has issued
56 flood alerts across the entire country with a more serious flood warning
in central England.
Carol Holt, of the Environment Agency, said the potential for large waves
combined with high tides could mean
some coastal floodgates being shut.

COMEBACK
KINGS & QUEENS
PLUS ONES
TO WATCH
THE COMEBACKS
IN 2017, we were
treated to new albums
from huge stars such
as Taylor Swift, Katy
Perry, U2, Kasabian and
Ed Sheeran.
Can 2018 match it for major
comebacks? Damn right.
Florence Welch of The
Machine has announced her
first book – poetry collection Useless Magic. It’s due out in July.
Don’t be surprised if La
Machine drops a new album
around the same time – she’s
announced live shows for Australia too. “You can guess what
that means,” a source told me.
Jess Glynne has been quiet
since her stellar debut I Cry
When I Laugh in 2015. But Ed
Sheeran has written two songs
for the follow-up, with hip-hop
producers PartyNextDoor and
Skrillex also in the studio with
the ginger titan.
Is Kylie going country on her
first album since 2014? She’s been
in Nashville, admitting some
songs are inspired by “a little bit
of heartbreak” after splitting
from actor Joshua Sasse. The
new album reunites her with
Girls Aloud hitmakers Xenomania, as well as Taylor Swift
songwriter Nathan Chapman.
FLORENCE
WELCH
After returning with fine single
Trigger Bang, Lily Allen will
continue to swap politics for
pop with a typically personal
fourth album. She says the
album will be called The Fourth
Wall and is about the break-up of
her marriage, drug abuse and
her children.
Having been away for so long
before his 2016 comeback, you
can’t keep Craig David down.
His new album The Time Is Now
ARCTIC
MONKEYS
is out on January 26. Guests
include AJ Tracey and Bastille,
who are also set to release another new album this year.
If Bastille are prolific, you can’t
say the same for Arctic Monkeys. The stunning AM album
was back in 2013, but they’ve
been recording. Typically for the
elusive Arctics, details are scant,
with drummer Matt Helders
only confirming they’ve been
recording in a secret location.
The 1975 singer Matt Healy is
more forthcoming about their
third album Music For Cars.
Healy calls it the final part of a
trilogy about growing up, saying:
“I haven’t really decided where
we are now. It’s sort of difficult to
understand the present.”
Three years after being breakout stars, Years And Years are
set to return, with Pet Shop
Boy Neil Tennant among the
co-writers. Expect euphoric-
sounding pop with lyrical heartbreak. Singer Olly Alexander
says: “All the best pop has a
crying soul at the heart, so that
hasn’t changed too much.”
The Rolling Stones return
with their first album of original
material since 2005’s A Bigger
Bang – expect UK shows too.
Plan B is never easy to
predict. Once he seemed
everywhere, but it’s been
six years since his Ill
Manors film and album.
Out in April, Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose
sees him mix the singing
from his hits with the rap
of his early career.
Major Lazer team up
with The Weeknd and
Travis Scott on their new
album, said to be called
Music Is The Weapon.
Manic Street Preachers release LP Resistance Is
Futile in April, trailed by
single International Blue,
while February sees Franz
Ferdinand’s first LP in five
years. We’ve heard Always
Ascending, and it’s worth the
wait. The Prodigy, The
Vaccines, The Wombats,
Fall Out Boy, Interpol
and Vampire Weekend
also return this year.

“Mixing so many genres together kinda just happened,”

Prince, while the boys played a lot of AC/DC, Led Zeppelin
and Green Day. It’s just a natural clash of genres.” Their shows
won’t get any stranger than playing Radio 1’s One Big Weekend
festival last summer.
“It was our first big show and my boob

I could improve my hearing
without thinking about the cost
John’s on song again with new hearing aids
AFTER years of working
in the steel industry, musicmad builder John Dixon
knew he’d lost some of his
hearing.
However, he didn’t realise how
serious the situation was until he
booked a free hearing test with
experts Amplifon.
Thankfully John, who plays in
a band by night, has now got his life
back on track with state-of-the-art
hearing aids.
Amplifon’s ‘buy now, pay later’ plan
has struck the right note too –
meaning he doesn’t have to start
paying for his life-changing new
hearing aids for 12 months.
John says: “When I put the hearing
aids in it was like I’d been blind and
could see again.”
Like many people, John had delayed
getting help with his hearing for
some time.
Action on Hearing Loss estimates
that 6.7million people in the UK
would benefit from wearing hearing
aids, but on average people wait
10 years before seeking a solution.
John explains: “I’d noticed I had
trouble hearing people in loud
environments, but I hadn’t realised
the extent of my problem.”
When he finally had a hearing test,
it revealed that his ability to hear
some higher frequencies was down
by 70 per cent.
Loss of high frequencies can make
it difficult to hear the voices of
women and children, and to catch
some consonants including F, S an K.
The test, available free at 200
hearing centres across the UK, takes
an hour and 20 minutes.
‘I tell people it’s the
best thing I’ve ever done.’
And as John discovered, it reveals a
detailed picture of someone’s hearing
across all frequencies and the impact
any deficits are having on daily life.
Amplifon’s audiologists then bring
together their expert knowledge and
the latest digital technology from
leading manufacturers to create
an individual solution for every
customer’s needs. For John they
provided a huge benefit.
He says: “The difference has been

excellent. And the buy now, pay later
scheme meant I could improve my
hearing right away, without having to
think about the cost.”
John’s audiologist recommended
devices that balance and boost his
hearing experience and link to his
iPhone, so he can easily alter the
settings to adjust to different
situations and environments.
The volume, treble, bass and features
which filter out background noise,
can all be adjusted with a discreet tap
on his phone.
And John reckons the flexibility
of his new wonder gadgets when
he’s performing with his folk and
Celtic band can’t be beaten.
He says: “If I’m in a noisy pub
I would change it to the party setting,
if I’m playing music, especially on the
stage, I can change it to the music
setting.

“There’s also an outdoor setting for
when I’m outside and it’s a bit breezy,
which is very handy.”
John’s family has spotted the
improvement, too.
He adds: “I can hear what people are
saying now so they’ve noticed I don’t
have to say, ‘pardon’ all the time.”
But no one can see his hearing aids.
John says: “The hearing aids are
very small, so a lot of people don’t
even realise I’m wearing them.
“I tell people it’s the best thing I’ve
ever done. For what you pay, it’s not
a lot for the improvement that it

A QUICKIE GUIDE TO
MAKING BABIES
Today’s the

shot at tot
■ by ALEXANDER BROWN
TODAY is the most popular day of the year to try
for a baby.
Many young couples will cosy
up after the New Year in the hope
of adding to their family.
And those wanting to know the
best way to woo their partner need
not look any further, with these toys
showing exactly how it’s done.
Dubbed National Baby-Making
Day, research has found most
wannabe parents will get it on at
10.36pm tonight after going back
to work.
Official figures show the UK’s most
common day to be born is September 26, 38 weeks after January 2.
EIGHT million Brits are
suffering a spending
hangover from Christmas.
One in six say they
are likely to get into debt
in January.
That is an increase from
11% last year.
More than half (55%) of
people did not save up
for their Christmas
expenses before December
arrived, a poll for National
Debtline found.
The free advice charity is
urging households to plan
ahead, including working
out a budget and getting
on top of debts.
Chief Joanna Elson said:
“After the celebrations of
the Christmas period,
January is a challenging
time for many households,
with the impact of festive
spending taking its toll on
household budgets.
“We want people to be
financially prepared for
the year ahead.”

Tricks
Fertility experts say couples are
inspired by wanting a baby to be
eldest in the school year.
The study by ChannelMum.com
also revealed couples are so desperate to conceive that 71% have tried
wacky tricks to boost their chances.
They include wearing socks to
keep warm, eating McDonald’s
fries after sex and even wearing
frozen underpants.
A survey of 1,500 mums found the
most recommended advice was to
eat dark chocolate every day,
with 40% trying it.
The site has now made a
video showing dolls demonstrating a variety of sex
positions – though it does not
recommend the bizarre undies
worn by the dolls.
Founder Siobhan Freegard said:
“Falling pregnant isn’t always easy
so couples will attempt anything.
“Our members swear their tips all
helped and we have hundreds of
bouncing new babies to prove it.”

FEAST OF TREATS ON SCREEN FOR THE YEAR AHEAD
PERFECT VISION
DON’T worry about having to stay indoors
★
because of the big freeze that’s forecast
at the start of 2018.
There will be plenty of TV treats to keep you
warm, toasty and glued to the box.
Here’s a round-up of some of the best
entertainment shows and dramas hitting
our screens in the new year and beyond...
★
CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER:
It should be called Celebrity Big Sister as it’s starting
with women only going into the famous house on
launch night. The stunt is to celebrate the fact that
it’s the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote.
Rumoured names include former Tory MP Charlotte
Leslie and C5’s newsreader India Willoughby. Men
will enter the house a week later.
THE VOICE
Will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and new
boy Olly Murs are back for a new series on ITV and
they are hoping to find a star. So far – after six series of
the talent show hosted by Emma Willis – this has
eluded them. Maybe 2018 will be the year they do it?
But does anyone remember the past winners?
DANCING ON ICE
Axed back in 2014 due to falling ratings, the show
is back with Phillip Schofield and
Holly Willoughby hosting and Jayne
Torvill and Christopher Dean sitting
on the judging panel. And Mr Mean
Jason Gardiner is back on board.
Celebrities risking all on the ice
include Love Island’s Kem Cetinay,
Bucks Fizz’s Cheryl Baker and
Corrie’s Brooke Vincent.
BRITAIN’S BEST COOK
Tipped to be the BBC’s “new Bake
Off”, it will be hosted by Strictly’s
Claudia Winkleman. Former Bake
Off star Mary Berry will be one of
the judges. The aim of the show? To
find Britain’s best cook by testing the
expertise of truly great home bakers.
Does this sound familiar?
THE GENERATION GAME
Former Bake Off hosts Mel and Sue
have mighty shoes to fill. They are
reviving the late Sir Bruce Forsyth’s
old Saturday night family game show
complete with the famous conveyor
belt and cuddly toy. It was last seen
on TV in 2002 with Jim Davidson in
charge. The BBC claim this is the
show “that viewers most want back
on their screens”.
ALL TOGETHER NOW
Spice Girl Geri Horner and comic
Rob Beckett front this new BBC
Saturday night singing contest. Each
week singers will perform in front of
“The 100” (a panel of musical experts
and artists). If any of them like what
they hear, they stand up and join in.
The greater the number that stand
up and sing along, the higher the
contestant’s score.
NEXT OF KIN
In this ITV thriller, Good Wife star
Archie Panjabi plays GP Mona Harcourt, whose life is thrown into turmoil when her brother is murdered
while working for a medical charity
abroad. This Life’s Jack Davenport
plays her political lobbyist husband
Guy. The drama centres on a web of
intrigue and betrayal as the tragedy
brings buried secrets to light.

corruption and money laundering.

The title of the show comes
from the “room of torture” in
George Orwell’s novel 1984.
Now host Frank Skinner has
revealed he can get quite shocked
when viewers spill the beans on
what they would love to send into
permanent exile.
It wasn’t the likes of Kate Price,
Kim Kardashian, Boris Johnson,
Gemma Collins or even Donald
Trump they loathe.
They actually hate leaf blowers.
Frank, who has hosted the show
for five years, said: “I get a lot of
people telling me what they’d put
in. That’s what I get the most from
viewers of the show.
“A lot of people mention leaf
blowers. People actually stop
me and talk about them for a
while. But, weirdly, no-one has
ever mentioned leaf blowers on
the show.
“I do get other stuff… all sorts.
But usually it is stuff we have
already put in.”
Room 101 was launched back in
1994 and its previous hosts have
included fellow comic Paul Merton and Nick Hancock.
Frank reckons the public love to
have a whinge.
He added: “It’s a very British
thing, having a moan.
“We’ve picked up on a national
past-time.”
● Room 101 kicks off on January
12 on BBC One.

a contender for the next
James Bond, wowed fans by
baring his bum in The Night
Manager and became a pin-up

But his short-lived romance

his popularity.
When comedian Phil Wang

HOLLY Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are set for an
emotional return to the
show where it all began.
The much-loved duo, known for
their hilarious partnership on
This Morning, first worked
together on ITV’s Dancing On Ice.
The pair fronted the show from 2006
to 2011, when Christine Lampard
replaced Holly, and are now back
together for its telly comeback.
Phil, 55, said: “Dancing On Ice is

Plug Through Night Light
Great quality and fantastic value
When the sun goes down, this night light
comes on, providing light anywhere it is
needed. The stylish unit fits in any 3 pin
socket while the clever design offers a plug
through option so you don't lose that valuable
socket!
For the perfect ambience, choose between
white, blue and green light at the touch of a
button. And because this marvel uses LED
technology, it offers low power consumption,
no heat and up to 30,000 hours of light.

what started it all off. It was the first
time we worked together.
“We had such fun that when the
position became vacant on This
Morning, I said, ‘Holly is the only
person I want. If I can’t have her I’m
not playing’.”
And 36-year-old mum-of-three Holly
is just as excited.
She said: “I can’t wait! There have
been rumours the show was coming
back for a couple of years and I was
asked if I would be interested and
obviously it was that ‘bite-your-handoff’ kind of thing.
“I have found a new appreciation for
this kind of show since having the
kids. It is nice my children are now
old enough to come and watch.”
Having been off air for three years,
the 10th series starts this Sunday
with stars including Love Island
winner Kem Cetinay, 21, and Corrie
beauty Brooke Vincent, 25.

A practical and common sense approach to work
and finances during the first quarter of the year will
help you avoid making careless mistakes. With
money from a bonus, grant or refund in June, you
will be able to afford a special treat. Good news
about a legal matter will reach your ears in the
summer. You will be taking a realistic attitude to
your work in the autumn and money you spend on
a new car, computer or interview suit will boost
your prospects.

If you run your own business, putting money into
advertising will increase profits during the first
quarter of the year. Business meetings and
conferences won’t be a waste of time. You’ll attract
a flock of new clients and get some impressive
contracts. Are you looking for work? Be sure to
emphasise your work ethic in interviews. A partner’s
good fortune will put money in your pocket in the
summer. Your other half could get a terrific pay rise
and this will be cause for celebration.

If you make purchases based on the hope of future
income, you might regret your impulsive behaviour. If
you’re going to improve your financial situation early in
the year, reduce your daily expenses. You can still live
comfortably on a reduced budget. Finances will improve
in July when the eclipse will boost your earning
potential. A new job, promotion or finding a second
source of income will bring financial security. Do
something nice for yourself in the autumn. Buy yourself
a gift or get a spa treatment.

Your positive outlook will attract exciting opportunities
as the year begins. Some envious people will resent
your good luck. True friends will be happy for you.
Career prospects are strong in1the spring. You will be
tempted to express your generous spirit by throwing
parties and splashing out on expensive gifts for your
family. Be sure to think of your own needs too. Start
putting any extra money into a savings account
in the autumn. Look on your savings as an investment
in your own happiness.

Your hard-working efforts will win favour with authority.
Keep up the good work and you will be offered a
promotion, plum assignment or high-profile job.
Persistence is key in 2018. Whenever you feel restless, keep reminding yourself of your goals. Prove to
yourself and others that you have the determination to
make your dreams come true. If you get a cash bonus
in the summer use it to go on a glamorous trip with
your partner or best friend. A new source of income
becomes available in November.

financial decision in March for when it comes to
business and financial dealings, you can’t be too
careful. You might start to feel the effects of overwork

IF you’re a lover of truly great
television, there’s only one
programme you’ll be wanting to
watch at 8pm tonight. Yes, that’s
right, it’s the episode of BBC2’s
INSIDE THE FACTORY in which
Gregg Wallace visits a Grimsby
fish finger plant.
Mind you, it does have a bit of
competition – the programme, not
the fish place – because ITV also
has something tasty in that 8pm
slot. Namely, THE GREATEST
TV MOMENTS OF ALL TIME, a
two-hour special hosted by Paddy
McGuinness. Stretching back to
the 60s, and featuring everything
from the tear-jerking to the titter-
inducing to the terrifying, it’ll first
decide the top moment from each
decade, then put these up against
each other to determine the
greatest of the lot. (I’m not entirely
sure why, but hey, it’s something
to do, right?). Celebs arguing
the case for their own favourites
include Holly Willoughby and
Corrie’s Bill Roache.
Head-to-head at 9pm with
the CELEBRITY BIG
BROTHER: YEAR OF THE
WOMAN (Channel 5), there’s a
show about dinosaurs. Or, to be
inaccurate, a show about one
particular dinosaur who it’s seems
has had a rather bad press. No, it’s
■
not a profile of Jeremy Clarkson
but THE REAL T. REX WITH
CHRIS PACKHAM (BBC2),
where the wildlife bloke looks
for the facts behind the fiction,
Tyrannosaurus-wise. What did
this creature really look like,
for example? How fast could it
gallop? How ferocious was it?
And did it like fish fingers?
That’s followed by the return
of INSIDE NO 9 (10pm, BBC2),
featuring six new brilliantly twisted
comic tales from Steve Pemberton
and Reece Shearsmith.

Insure your city break for less
even if you aren’t in the best health
R
omantic city breaks abroad are becoming
increasingly more popular thanks to low cost
flights being offered. If you are travelling with a
pre-existing medical condition, there may be some
anxiety, especially if medical care could be required
and the insurance policy might prove to be as
expensive as the trip itself.
Star reader Alice was planning a trip to Barcelona
with her husband but she had some health concerns
and wanted to be sure that the correct information was
included.
“I visited the PayingTooMuch.com website but I
wasn’t sure about one of my conditions and didn’t want
to make any mistakes filling when setting up the policy.
I received a call back from Sasha who helped me go
through the process which was really helpful and put
me at ease.”

Wild party girls
wrecked my life
JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES
YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY
... AND EVERY DAY
So dull
without
a drink
Fiancé
wants
‘break’
WHEN he’s sober, my
boyfriend is upright
and boring. But once
he gets a drink inside
him, he’s a scream.
So I only fancy
making love to
him when he’s
sozzled – and that
hurts his feelings.
We first met at a
mutual mate’s
wedding. We were on
the singles/naughty
table at the back of
the reception and
drank everything in
sight. We had a
brilliant night of
snogging on the
dancefloor and sex in
my hotel room.
Our dates were all
booze-based, but now
we’ve been together
a while, I find him
Dullsville USA.
He has no
conversation and
takes himself very
seriously. He’s only
attractive when he’s
half-cut. How do I
deal with this?
MY fiancé wants a
pre-wedding break. He
thinks it would be a good
idea to have three months
off from each other.
He’s suggesting
March-June ahead of our
September wedding.
That way we can both
sow any wilds oats we
still have left and settle
down to marriage without
ever looking at another
person again.
He’s told me that he
wants me to date other
men while he goes on
crazy holidays with his
mad mates.
But if he really loved me,
then why would he want
to spend a single second
away from my arms?
Besides, I’m not
interested in other men
– I only want him.
His argument is that his
brother and his wife did a
similar thing and claim it
was the best thing ever.
But I find them very
strange at the best of
times. What do I say?
Picture posed by model
JANE SAYS: You need
to decide what this guy
means to you. Is he a
proper boyfriend or is
he a crazy drink buddy?
I worry that if you
and he can’t get on
in normal, sober
circumstances, then
you’re not suited to
each other at all.
If the thought of
spending normal time
with him fills you with
dread, you need to
start being honest
with him about your
true feelings.
Perhaps you need to
agree to conduct this
relationship on a purely
“as and when” basis.
If you’re both up for a
laugh then arrange to
meet. Would he be
happy with that
arrangement, or do you
need to call it a day?
I just don’t see how a
relationship founded on
alcohol can (healthily)
go the distance.
NOW I’M
JOBLESS
& ALONE
I’M so ashamed of the
way I’ve allowed my life
to spiral out of control.
Not so long ago I was flying
high. I had a lovely boyfriend,
good friends and a decent job.
But then I got in with a couple
of women at work who were, basically, a bad influence.
They got me into drinking too
much and taking party drugs.
Nights out with them were wild
– lots of sex and drugs and rock
and roll – and my boyfriend soon
grew rather sick of me staggering in drunk.
He dumped me after he discovered love bites all over my
boobs. I screamed that he did not
own me and I could do what I
liked. But he walked.
My friends soon followed after I
accused one of stealing from me.
Trust
When redundancies came round
last March, my name was right at
the top of the list because my boss
said he could not trust me to turn
up on time.
Now I’m facing the loneliest
year ever – and I’ve only got myself to blame.
My mum says I’m a disgrace
and is flying out to Goa with
her girlfriends.
My dad is out in Ibiza and even
my sister says that I bore her – the
biggest put-down of all.
I used to be the life and soul of
every party, but now I can’t even
get someone to go out for a drink
with me.
I’m friendless, broke and alone.
Even my grandma, who’s always
been my greatest ally, has told
me that she’s not prepared to loan
BITTER REGRETS: She lived for booze, drugs and sex but everyone has abandonned her
me any more money from now on.
In fact, she is insisting that I
start paying back the £3,000 which
I already owe her.
If I don’t, then she’s going to
write me out of her will. How do I
turn this around?
JANE SAYS: When we hit the
bottom, we have no choice but to
rise up.
At the moment your life is rotten.
You’re hugely in debt, your parents and friends are disgusted
with you and you’re feeling very
sorry for yourself.
Stop looking for excuses and
work out how you’re going to start
building bridges. This is a new
year and new beginning.
Count your blessings – because
you do have some – and make a
list of everyone you have upset.
Then go and see people individually and apologise for being a
brat. Own up to your failings and
ask for forgiveness.
Some people will, inevitably, tell
you to get stuffed, but you’ll just
have to take that on the chin.
Obviously your family are the
most important people.
You must hold your hands up
and offer to go and see them in

turning things around.
In short, you must swallow your

You owe it to yourself to make

JANE SAYS: Your fiancé
needs to be reminded that
he is not his brother. You
and he are individuals
and what worked for his
bro and his wife isn’t
necessarily right for you.
Tell him right now
that his three-month
dea stinks.
You’re not interested in
dating other men and you
really aren’t impressed by
the idea of him going on a
series of crazy holidays
with his lively pals.
Explain that this is not
how you imagined things
would be. How does he
now think his suggestion
makes you feel? Is he
actually serious about
getting married at all?
A wedding isn’t just
about the day itself. It
signals the start of an
adult vow and life-long
commitment.
I worry that a September
date is too soon. Should
you postpone things in
order to talk and think
some more?
Left belittled
by oldest pal
DURING a party at my house, my best mate was her usual
outrageous self.
My new work colleagues hated her on sight and have
pointed out that she constantly belittles, humiliates and
puts me down.
I hadn’t really thought about it, but they’re right. She
does bully me. Now the scales have fallen from my eyes.
But she’s says I’m a snowflake for even listening to them.
JANE SAYS: Perhaps the two of you have been in each
other’s pockets for too long and now it’s time for you to
spread your wings and be your own people?
It could be that familiarity has bred contempt. No-one has
the right to call you names or bring you down.
Now that your eyes have been opened, you cannot allow
yourself to be blinkered again. Dump her today.

SIGNING a lease or closing on a house sale
will give you an abiding sense of security. If you
want to relocate, you’ll find the perfect abode. There’s a
good chance your future home will be close to a beautiful
body of water.
PASSING a test or finishing a course is
cause for celebration. Enjoy a meal or host a
party for your fellow students. You’ll make lifelong
friendships with a few of your peers. Some of these will
be unlike any you’ve previously enjoyed.

Upgrading a computer or investing in a handsome interview suit are possibilities. If you’re looking for a job,
you could be contacted by an employment agency.
THE spotlight is firmly trained on you. Take this
opportunity to draw attention to your favourite
cause. Raising money for charity, getting an interview with
a potential new employer or promoting a volunteer organisation will be highly successful.

YOU have a rare opportunity to enjoy some
private time. Instead of fearing an impending
change, you’ll welcome it with open arms. Embarking on a
passionate relationship, leaving a restrictive job or starting
a business are among the possibilities.
PUTTING the finishing touches to a creative
project fills you with pride. You’ll attract a big
fan base. If someone offers to manage or represent
you, accept. This will allow you to focus on your craft
while your representative finds opportunities for you.

IT’S time to indulge your sensual side. Take this

yourself for a change. If your romantic partner gives you a
lavish gift, accept it with gratitude.
TAKE this opportunity to show your appreciation to others. You tend to keep your feelings under wraps. This can be alienating for your

TRAINER Alan King
confessed his New
Year’s resolution is to
stop swearing and he
had
no
need
for
expletives
after
Yanworth
bounced
back to his best at
Cheltenham.
Sent off the 15-8 joint-favourite, he turned the tables on
Willoughby Court, who had
beaten him at Newbury, in
impressive style thanks to a
much improved round of
jumping.
“He’s going to be the death of
me!” said King who was
recording his 1,550th winner.
“His jumping was good. Barry
(Geraghty the winning rider)
was impressed.
“Full credit to Wayne (Hutchinson) and Yogi Breisner, who
have done a lot of work with
him.
“They’ve had two good
sessions to get him to shorten
his stride into his fences and
that was very evident as he
was very good at it.
“He’s gone and winged the
last and I thought he was going
to go and win by two or three
lengths and then he’s
suddenly pricked his ears.
Luckily, when the other
horse came to him he
went again.
“It’s not straightforward but he was
much better. That
was a big step in the
right direction.”
Yanworth was cut
to 8-1 from 12-1 by
Betfair and Paddy
Power for the RSA
Chase and is 9-1 with the
former for the JLT
Novices’ Chase.
King added: “I think he will
have entries in the JLT and the
RSA at Cheltenham in March,
but he wants another run.
“I would imagine we will look
at
something
like
the
Reynoldstown (Ascot, February
17) and there is the Scilly Isles
(Sandown, February 3).”
Unlike Yanworth, Willoughby
Court’s jumping let him down.
A howling error at the fourthlast fence was the final blow.

■
CLASS ACT:
Yanworth on his
way to success at
Cheltenham, trained
Alan King, inset
Trainer King swears
by his stable star
“Nothing will
change and he’ll
go straight to the
JLT. I didn’t feel he was ever
quite as fluent as he had been
at Newbury.”
Local trainer Nigel Twiston
started the New Year with a
double.
Ballyhill set the ball rolling
when taking the BetBright
Handicap Chase in the hands
of Jamie Bargary.
“It was a long way out when
he fell at Aintree last time, but
we thought he was going well
there and that’s proved that he
was,” said Twiston-Davies.
“We will look at a race here
on Trials Day and then we
will work out what we go for
at the Festival after that.”
The double was completed
when Wholestone bounced
back to form in the Relkeel
Hurdle under a confident ride
from Daryl Jacob.
Rich Ricci, the owner of
Faugheen who was pulled up at
Leopardstown
on
Friday,
believes he can regain his
crown in the Champion Hurdle

“Barring anything popping up
of a more serious nature this
week I think we’ll crack on,”
said Ricci about his 2015
Champion Hurdle winner.
“Whether he goes to the Irish
Champion
Hurdle
at
Leopardstown in the first week
of February, or whether he’ll
go straight to Cheltenham, I
don’t know, but our intention
at the moment is to crack on.
“He was fine after the race.
We’ve gotten him home. He’s
normal. Everything’s fine.”

Today’s top Newcastle tips from Starform
3.35
A hood is applied to
CROWNED EAGLE (nb),
who made a promising start for new
connections at Wolverhampton. He races
off the same mark and, if building on that
effort, is sure to give a good account.
Paddyplex has won both his Flat
outings and, though upped in grade and
trip, may have more to offer. He is up 4lb
for his success here over two furlongs
shorter but is bred to appreciate this
distance. The ground was probably
against Lawless Secret in France but
she has strong claims on her previous
start at Doncaster. She had no answer to
Reshoun but finished nicely clear of the
rest and that level of form gives her every
chance in this company.
4.40
PUNTERS CAN
BANK ON JOHN
Approval, who is well treated on a pick
of last year’s efforts. Certificate gave
little encouragement on his debut for new
connections but is well handicapped on
his very best form and could easily
spring a surprise.
5.10
HEAVEN’S GUEST
(treble) has not won since
2015 but makes plenty of appeal if able
to reproduce his last run. That was an
excellent half-a-length second to Charles
Molson over course and distance. He is
able to race off the same mark and is
well treated on his very best form. Twin
Appeal is upped in class after his
Wolverhampton success but remains on
a mark 3lb lower than when scoring on
turf. Blinkers replace a visor on Swift
A competitive renewal but the
in-form GRACIOUS JOHN
(nap) is at the top of his game and Fran
Berry has a 100% record on him – two
from two. The latest was a narrow victory
at Wolverhampton which was gained
despite a tardy start where he reared
when the stalls opened. He is value for
more than the short head margin and
can complete the hat-trick. Caspian
Prince carries a Group Two penalty and
Final Venture has an extra 3lb for his
Listed success. Both will do well to
overcome having to concede
weight but do have a touch of
class about them.
6.10
A tight handicap but
the drop to this grade
should pay dividends for
SHAMSHON. This is his first time
at this level and he ran Gracious
John (runs 5.10) to less than two
lengths at Lingfield last month. A
repeat of that should be good
enough here. Fast Track has
slipped to a mark 2lb lower than
when last successful and has a
good record when competing at this
level. He looks the main threat from a
yard in cracking form.

Putting the “Yee-haw!” into early January, the
‘Merit Poker Western Tournament’ kicks off in
a couple of days’ time in Kyrenia in Northern
Cyprus (4th-15th January). If the idea of
wearing spurs and a ten-gallon hat to play
poker isn’t enough to have you jumping in the

thought of the million buckaroos guaranteed
across the festival will! See MeritPoker.com
SMALL PAIRS…
Beyond the halfway stage of a tournament, the
value of small pocket pairs starts to increase.
For example, they can be used to re-raise
pre-flop under the following combination of
circumstances:
1. You are facing yet another later position raise
from a player who has been raising pre-flop
way too many times.
2. Both you and your opponent have deep
stacks.
3. You haven’t been doing much pre-flop
raising or three-betting (re-raising) so you have
a tightish table image you can exploit.
…EMPOWERED
(Cont.) Three-betting here should win you the
pot. Some opponents will stubbornly refuse to
yield an Ace-x hand to your re-raise and will
call. If the flop is raggy and non-threatening,
a continuation bet should seal the deal in your
favour. If the flop comes with
high cards, with straight
or flush potential, you can
always check and look to
take a free card.

ON THE
BALL:
Mason Crane
impresses in
a practice
session for
England
■ by RODNEY WHITE in Sydney
ENGLAND coach Trevor Bayliss is sure Mason Crane has
“got the goods” to make it in
Test cricket.
Crane could replace the underperforming Moeen Ali in the final Ashes Test in
Sydney, which starts tomorrow night.
Spinner Moeen’s confidence with the
ball looks at rock bottom, with just three
wickets at 135 apiece.
And while Bayliss and England’s team
management are wary about wielding the
axe, they also believe Sydney could
be the perfect place to blood Crane.

“It will be a tricky decision and to become the first overseas player
we will have to have a bit of a chat since Imran Khan in the mid 80s to
about it this week, but with Mason, play Sheffield Shield cricket for

the New South
all-rounder might
continue to struggle with the ball, he
remains a potential match-winner
with the bat, although he is averaging
just 19.42 in the four Tests to date.
Bayliss said: “Like any player, you
go through highs and lows and at
the moment the number of runs and
wickets makes it one of his lows.
“But just a couple of months
ago we were singing his praises
as one of the best all-rounders in
the world.
“Conditions are a bit different

he would have liked to feel comfortable. Mo is a free spirit and one or

URIAH HALL has vowed to be
in the right mental shape
when he tackles Vitor Belfort.
The pair meet in a middleweight clash at UFC Fight
Night 124 in St Louis on
January 14.
And Hall wants to avoid a
repeat of the anguish he went
through in his last fight against
Krzysztof Jotko in September.
“I was ready to quit in that
fight,” said the 33-year-old
New Yorker, who won with a
second-round knockout.
“I was thinking, ‘I’m done
with this s**t. What the f**k am
THE ULTIMATE
INSIDER

were going through my head.
I was thinking that I could
have a better job than this.”
In order to prepare himself
to face Belfort, Hall has been
visualising his best moments
in the octagon.
He said: “Because of doing
that, I think I know what to do
now. I think of the good
experiences and I can control
what happens.”
While retirement is not
on the horizon for Hall,
it is for Belfort, 40,
who says this will
be his last UFC
fight after a
21-year career.
His final bout
is the co-main

WORLD DARTS FINAL
■
POWER PLAY: Rob
Cross lifts his first
world title as Phil Taylor
(above) struggles in his
final professional match
YOUR PROPERTY
KING CROSS
■ by RICHARD LEWIS
ROB CROSS became
William Hill world champion last night – as he
turned off ‘The Power’
for good.
On an emotional evening at the
Ally Pally, Cross, a former electrician, brought to an end the
incredible career of Phil Taylor.
As he lifted the Sid Waddell Trophy after an amazing 7-2 triumph
in the final, winning on a checkout of 140, Cross handed it over to
16-time world champion Taylor to
raise it for the last occasion.
Cross, 27, from Hastings,
said: “I feel great but it is about
Phil departing and that is why
I let him lift the trophy.
“I was born in 1990 when he
won his first world title. I hope he
has a happy retirement, he is
absolutely brilliant. It was a
dream to play Phil. I always wanted
to play him, you will not see
another sportsman like him.”
Cross used to be a sparky by day
and a darts player by night, but
now he is the shining new light of
**
Voltage lifts first crown as
he pulls plug on legend Power
the sport, winning the £400,000 first
prize after taking Taylor apart.
The Power is dead, long live the
man known as ‘Voltage’.
Taylor, who banked £170,000,
said: “Rob is a lot like myself –
dedicated. He has listened and he
has learned. The top players have
a problem because he wants to
win and I don’t think it is about
the money. The sport has an animal on its hands.
“I was at the end of my career
and it was an old man against
a young man. I tried my best. I
got my backside smacked.”
Whatever fuelled him in this
championship, the new champ
never once got his wires crossed
when all the build-up had been
about Taylor, 57, bowing out from
the professional side of the sport
by writing one final chapter.
But it was hot Cross fun for the
man from Sussex as he hit finishes of 167 and 153 to move 3-0 up.
Crowd
It was first blood to the debutant
as he landed double 18 in the
opening leg on his way to taking
the first set.
Cross won the second set 3-1
with the most stunning 167 checkout – treble 20, treble 19 and bull
– and took the third 3-0.
Of course Taylor had his moments, such as his stunning 151
finish to move 1-0 ahead in the
fourth set and then double 10 saw
him finally win a set. As he left
the stage, he flipped his middle
finger towards his entourage in
the crowd as if to signal it was
one set to him.
And in the first leg of the next
set, it was almost disbelieving
as Taylor set himself up for a
nine-darter but, agonisingly,
he missed the double 12.
But he did not even win the leg
as Cross secured it on double 16
and won the set 3-0 on double
eight before moving 5-1 up.
Double 18 took him to 6-1 but
then Taylor came back with double 16 to win his second set.
But within minutes Cross became champion of the world with
a glorious double 16 on 140.

ROUND-UP
AFC WIMBLEDON.2
SOUTHEND .........0
BRISTOL R ..........2
PORTSMOUTH ..... 1
LIAM TROTTER and Tom
Soares scored rare goals as
AFC Wimbledon moved to
within a point of safety.
The midfield duo each scored
their first goal for the club
either side of half-time.
Trotter collected Lyle Taylor’s
knockdown and fired past
Southend goalkeeper Mark
Oxley, before Soares diverted in
Deji Oshilaja’s header, as
Southend suffered a fifth defeat
in six league fixtures.
LIAM SERCOMBE capped a
late Bristol Rovers fightback
to stun Portsmouth.
Oliver Hawkins’ opener
was cancelled out by Stuart
Sinclair, before Sercombe
struck in the last minute of
normal time.
Hawkins headed Adam
May’s cross to put the
visitors on course for a third
straight win, but Sinclair
pounced, before Sercombe’s
stunning 25-yard winner.
CHARLTON.......... 1
GILLINGHAM .......2
FLEETWOOD ....... 1
BRADFORD .........2
GILLINGHAM’S Josh
Parker and Tom Eaves piled
more misery on Charlton.
The hosts saw their
winless league run reach
eight matches, while the
Gills moved four points
clear of the relegation zone.
Eaves did well to set up
Parker, who fired in the
opener, and scored the
second himself just after
the half-hour mark, with
Joe Aribo netting in reply.
ALEX GILLIEAD and Shay
McCartan scored as
Bradford came from behind
to win at Fleetwood.
Former Bradford man
Jordy Hiwula set up Jack
Sowerby to give the hosts a
first-half lead. But Newcastle
loanee Gilliead equalised
after half-time for the Fleet.
McCartan made it 2-1,
before Conor McAleny
missed a late chance to level
as Bradford held on.
NORTHAMPTON ...0
WIGAN ............... 1
OXFORD .............3
MK DONS ............ 1
NICK POWELL’S goal kept
Wigan at the top of the table
after a convincing display
The former Manchester
United man scored after just
five minutes to keep the Latics
clear of Shrewsbury at the
summit and leave
Northampton in the drop zone.
Gavin Massey’s cross was
met by the onrushing Powell
who planted his header out of
the reach of Matt Ingram and
Wigan could have scored more.
WES THOMAS, Gino van
Kessel and Jon Obika were
all on target as Oxford
cruised to victory.
Thomas opened the scoring
after 15 minutes, and while
Alex Gilbey levelled things,
Van Kessel had the home
side ahead in first-half
stoppage time. Obika scored
just before the hour mark,
before Ricardinho was sent
off for the home side to
slightly sour their victory.
PETERBOROUGH .... 1
DONCASTER........ 1
PLYMOUTH ......... 1
WALSALL............0
BEN WHITEMAN grabbed a
dramatic 93rd-minute
equaliser to snatch a point
for Doncaster.
Danny Lloyd had put
Peterborough ahead with
his 10th goal of the season,
but Doncaster applied all
the late pressure and
Whiteman had the final say
from close range in the
dying seconds after a
blocked shot fell perfectly
into his path.
RYAN TAYLOR’S thumping
strike handed Plymouth
victory and maintained their
impressive recent run.
Argyle are unbeaten in six
and Taylor’s left-footed effort
in the 67th minute after Ruben
Lameiras’ mazy run handed
them all three points and
moved them further from the
relegation zone. Amadou
Bakayoko missed a golden
opportunity for Walsall,
ROCHDALE.......... 1
BLACKPOOL........2
ROTHERHAM ....... 1
BLACKBURN........1
BLACKPOOL increased the
threat of relegation facing
Rochdale with victory.
The visitors took the lead
after the 54th minute when
Nathan Delfueneso drifted
wide of goalkeeper Josh Lillis,
before side-footing home.
Their second came after 67
minutes when Jay Spearing’s
corner was headed in by
Kelvin Mellor, leaving Mark
Kitching’s late reply a mere
consolation for the home side.
DAVID BALL continued his
hot run of form to earn
Rotherham against Blackburn.
Rovers looked to be heading
for maximum points when
Bradley Dack put them ahead
after 66 minutes, but Ball
struck his sixth goal in eight
games, as the Millers extended
their unbeaten sequence to six.
That is minuscule in
comparison to Blackburn’s
14-game undefeated run, but
they lost ground on the top two.
SCUNTHORPE...... 1
BURY..................0
SHREWSBURY ..... 1
OLDHAM .............0
CHARLIE GOODE smashed
home a late winner as
promotion-chasing
Scunthorpe edged out Bury.
The goal came four
minutes from time, on the
back of a goalmouth
scramble, which ended the
Shakers’ resistance.
A point would have done
little to help the visitors’
survival hopes, but they
were unlucky not to hold on
for a morale-boosting draw
having frustrated their
hosts for long spells.
SHAUN WHALLEY’S first-half
strike kept Shrewsbury flying
high after beating Oldham.
The home side started
brightly, with top scorer Stefan
Payne testing goalkeeper
Johnny Placide from 25 yards,
before their early pressure was
rewarded with a 16th-minute
breakthrough.
Winger Whalley followed up
to convert the rebound from
close range for his ninth goal
in all competitions after
Placide was unable to hold
Arthur Gnahoua’s shot.

TIGHT TUSSLE:
Forest’s Kieran
Dowell challenges
Leeds’ Luke Ayling
Forest’s ready
to grow again
CARETAKER boss Gary Brazil
reckons Nottingham Forest’s
grit and determination can
soon have them climbing the
table under a new manager.
Brazil stepped in for Mark Warburton,
who was sacked on New Year’s Eve after
just nine months in charge and a run of
only one win in seven games.
But Brazil is sure that if Forest’s players
can replicate the manner in which they
stood up to Leeds, then the Warburton’s replacement will have plenty to work with.
He said: “It’s a performance that shows
this group of players want to do really
well for the football club.
“To a man, the application and attitude
of the players was top drawer. We could
have been a little bit better in possession
at times but the work-rate was exemplary.
“It’s not easy and it’s not a nice industry at times but we have to be professional. We spoke to the players and
made it clear that, whatever had gone
on, we had to be professional.”
Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen
claimed his side’s performance merited a
victory, despite only forcing goalkeeper
Jordan Smith into one difficult save when
Pablo Hernandez’s shot was blocked six
minutes from time.
“I believe that we deserved to take the

three points,” said Christiansen. “We created very big opportunities, but if you
don’t score, then you don’t get the win.
“We did almost everything perfect, but
that’s football.”
Leeds picked up seven points from a possible 12 over the Christmas period, with
defeat at bottom-placed Birmingham on
December 30 the only low spot.
Christiansen added: “The players
responded in a good way from the
Birmingham match, I liked our performance. But it was still not enough.
“I would always like to take points from
all our games but in general, knowing the
programme we’ve had and that all teams
have the same, I think we have done well.
“We could have picked up more but
maybe we could have not got all three
points against Hull (a 1-0 win). This is the
difficulty this league has – you can lose
against the last and win against the first.”
It was hard to make a case for either
side to win. In the first half Leeds
striker Kemar Roofe came closest as he
hooked over from inside the six-yard
box after Liam Cooper’s header had
been parried by Smith.
The visitors’ main threat in the opening
45 minutes came through the enterprising
play of Barrie McKay, Matthew Cash and
Ben Brereton, but none of them could
fashion a clear opportunity.
Roofe had a chance for the hosts 10 minutes into the second half, Samuel Saiz
setting him up superbly, however the exOxford star blazed against the bar.
Forest had a spell of pressure midway
through the second half which forced
Leeds keeper Felix Wiedwald into action
but the German was always comfortable.
Hernandez could have snatched it, having been fed by the impressive Saiz, but
saw his shot blocked by Smith.
Pinn drops on poor Cats
HEAD BOY: Pinnock
ETHAN PINNOCK struck his second
goal in three days to earn Barnsley
their first win in two months.
The centre-half, who joined the
Tykes from Forest Green last
summer, opened his account with a
last-gasp equaliser against
Reading on Saturday.
And Pinnock was his side’s hero
again, losing Adam Matthews in the
47th minute to meet Zeki Fryer’s

Robbin Ruiter. It ended a 10-match

winless run for Barnsley, while for
Sunderland, a seventh home defeat
this season sends them back into

Black Cats boss Chris Coleman
knows he must pull a rabbit out of
the hat in the transfer market.
He said: “Again, we looked
nervous at home. With all our
injuries, we need to fatten the
squad up in terms of numbers and
add to the quality. It’s a critical
month and if we can do that, we
have a good chance.”
Both sides had hit the woodwork
in a first half in which Sunderland
lost midfielder Darron Gibson, who
faces a lengthy spell out with a
recurrence of a groin injury.
“I’m pleased with the result but
we still have to do better,” said
Tykes boss Paul Heckingbottom.
“We were wasteful and made it
hard for ourselves.”

TURNED IT AROUND:
Rangers debutant
Paul Smyth celebrates his
winner at Loftus Road
Bluebirds boss is left
raging at ref’s ruling
NEIL WARNOCK blamed
referee Tim Robinson’s ‘scandalous’
decision for denying Cardiff a first
point in four games.
QPR were leading with 10
minutes to go thanks to a debut goal by Paul Smyth when Cardiff’s Junior Hoilett thought he
had levelled against his old club.
But Robinson disallowed the
goal for offside, even though
Warnock claims the referee
admitted he didn’t know who had
touched the ball last.
“That’s three or four games
where we’ve had crucial decisions
against us,” said the Cardiff boss.
Praise
“It’s scandalous at the moment.
I’ve never known it as poor with
officials. We’ve lost four on the
trot and three of them I don’t
know how.
“We work all week to get
things right and I wonder what
they’ll feel when they watch it
and know they’re wrong.”
Four defeats on the spin have
knocked the Bluebirds’ promotion hopes, but Warnock insists
they are still on course and plans
to add two players this month.
QPR boss Ian Holloway preferred to praise Smyth, 20, who
arrived in August from Linfield.

constantly running at experienced Cardiff defender Sol
Bamba.
“It was probably one of the
biggest risks I’ve ever taken,”
said Holloway. “But if people
are missing, someone else
deserves a chance.
“He was a breath of fresh air. I
thought their defenders might
struggle with him.”
The visitors went ahead after 54
minutes when Jake Bidwell needlessly pushed Callum Paterson in
the area as Joe Ralls’ cross came
over from the left.
Midfielder Ralls then stepped
up and rolled the penalty past
Rangers keeper Alex Smithies.
QPR were level eight minutes
later when Matt Smith nodded in
Jack Robinson’s long throw.
And after 72 minutes Smyth
charged past Bruno Ecuele Manga and cut in from the left with
his shot deflecting in off Bamba.
“He handled it brilliantly and
caused them problems,” added
Holloway.
“He made that luck and that’s
just what we need.”
Leon’s still leading the way
RED HOT: Clarke
LEON CLARKE’S second-half
header earned Sheffield United a

Derby had led through Matej
Vydra’s first-half penalty following
George Baldock’s handball.

immense amount of pride.
“For us to come back from a goal
down is great. We took the game to
them and we deserved something
out of the game.” Vydra opened the
scoring in the 24th minute from 12
yards. Baldock was forced into a
desperate handball by Johnny
Russell’s pressure and the referee
pointed to the spot.
However, the Blades levelled in
the 57th minute when Donaldson’s
cross from the left allowed hotshot

perspective but overall they were
better than us.”

SWINDON............2
ACCRINGTON’S New Year’s
Day clash with Morecambe
was abandoned at half-time
following persistent rainfall,
with the hosts leading 1-0.
Prolific striker Billy Kee had
scored, what he thought, was
his 15th goal of the season after
27 minutes when he bundled
home Kayden Jackson’s cross.
But the continued rain made
tough and led to referee
Graham Salisbury calling off
the game at the break.
BARNET remain one point
from safety after slipping up
against away-day specialists
Swindon.
Ellis Iandolo put the
visitors ahead with a
stunning 35-yard free-kick.
The lead didn’t last long,
though, as John Akinde
headed in from Jamal
Campbell-Ryce’s cross to
level, but Matt Preston’s
close-range finish saw
Swindon claim the victory.

COLCHESTER played out
their second successive
goalless draw.
Cambridge went close
early on through Uche
Ikpeazu, before Drey Wright

netting for Colchester.
The hosts had a penalty
claim turned down just
before the hour after Kane
Vincent-Young tumbled
under substitute Medy

MARC McNULTY’S matchwinning goal helped
Coventry climb into the
automatic promotion places.
McNulty hit the winner
after he curled past Jake
Eastwood, before the

McNulty’s goal came in a
half of few chances, before
Joe Rowley smacked a post
for the visitors with a cross
seconds after the restart.

CHRIS PORTER and Brad

First-half strikes from Porter

cushion between themselves
and the bottom two, with their
second win in three games.
Porter converted Zoumana
Bakayogo’s cross in the 12th
minute, before Walker doubled
their advantage with a volley.
MARK COOPER and his son
Charlie were both sent off
as Forest Green’s problems
mounted.
Boss Cooper was outraged
when Charlie was sent off
following a touchline clash
and he, too, was dismissed
to the stands. Already 1-0
down to Matt Bloomfield’s
goal, Rovers saw Craig
Mackail-Smith double
Wycombe’s lead, with Jack
Fitzwater netting in reply.

Matt Green volleyed in for
the Imps, Harry Anderson
was sent off. James Justin
fired Luton level, before
Danny Hylton and Harry
Cornick sealed the victory.
KANE HEMMINGS scored
twice as Mansfield stormed
into the play-off places.
Hemmings’s brace was
sandwiched by a Rhys Bennett
effort to continue the Stags’
fine form which has seen them
lose only once in 18 games.
Carlisle had pulled a goal
back through Jamie Devitt’s
penalty, after keeper Conrad
Logan fouled Richie Bennett,
but they missed the chance to
close the gap on the top seven.

PADRAIG AMOND and Robbie
Willmott were on the

Newport were ahead after

post by Joss Labadie, before
Amond’s glancing header
opened the scoring.
Jayden Stockley equalised,
but it was Newport who came
out on top as Willmott fired
home from 25 yards.
JON STEAD scored a late
penalty for promotionchasing Notts County as
they edged past Port Vale.
Stead converted from the
spot with four minutes
remaining of the encounter.
It was enough to break the
resistance of goalkeeper
Ryan Boot, who had kept
Vale from conceding in the
first half, with two fine saves
to deny Jonathan Forte and
Ryan Yates respectively.
STEVENAGE ........4

YEOVIL ............... 1

TOM PETT bagged a brace
as Stevenage began 2018

The away side scored after

Mohamed Eisa netted, but
Stevenage equalised halfway
through the first half
through Matt Godden.
The Boro went ahead when
Pett rolled into an empty
net in the 35th minute. The
hosts cruised to the win
when Danny Newton netted
and Pett got his second.
THOMAS VERHEYDT scored
the winner as Crawley came
from behind to beat nine-man
Yeovil in a game which was
halted by a drone.
The hosts took the lead
through Sam Surridge, but
went down to 10 men when
Connor Smith was sent off.
Mark Randall levelled things
up for Crawley, before Omar
Sowunmi was given a straight
red for the home side.
After a 10-minute delay in the
second half, Verheydt scored
an 87th-minute winner.

Ederson’s
spot-kick save
“He didn’t have to say anything,”
said the Wales stopper before today’s
trip to Southampton.
“We all know it was a fantastic save
and we have seen him put the ball in
the back of the net so many times.
“We keep up his spirits and I am
sure he will be fine at Southampton.
“It was a good penalty, straight down
the middle. But he is a fantastic goalkeeper – that’s why he plays for City.”
Despite a goalless draw, Hennessey
said boss Roy Hodgson didn’t set out
to just defend against the Premier
League leaders, having picked a team
featuring Wilfried Zaha, Christian
Benteke and Andros Townsend.
“We wanted to punish them as much
as we possibly could,” said Hennessey.
“Our front three at the moment are
on fire and I would like to think we
caused them problems as well.
“We definitely didn’t want to be
that sort of team just to get everyone
behind the ball, stay in our own half
and just defend for our lives.
“We weren’t all about that. We
wanted to attack as well and offer a
threat and we did that.
“We kept it simple. We were
hurting them. We have stopped
them and not many teams have
done that this season.
“It has stopped their winning run as
well, so hopefully we can go on now.
“Everyone else will go into the
Southampton game on a high.”

Top scorer Scott Wilson
added his 11th goal of
the season as the
leaders stretched their
unbeaten run to 10
games with a 4-1 win at
Halifax to stay six points
clear of the pack.
Scott Rendell scored
twice against former club
Woking in a 2-1 win for
second-place Aldershot.
Kane Ferdinand
cancelled out Rendell’s
early opener but the
ex-Cards man lashed in
his sixth of the season a

“It’s always special
scoring a last-minute
winner against your local

The game was then
halted for seven minutes
due to a disturbance in
Woking’s season’s best

SON-SHINE BOY:
Heung-Min is set
to star for Tottenham
tonight and (inset)
their new ground
takes shape
Jan: City’s title
WATFORD defender Daryl
Janmaat has no doubts that
Manchester City will be
champions this season.
The Hornets hope to put a
dismal end to 2017 behind them
at the Etihad Stadium tonight.
But Janmaat reckons leaders
City are good enough to stay
unbeaten for the entire season.
“If there’s a team who can do
it, it’s them, because they show
every week they are too strong
for every team,” he said.
“I think they have the best
players in the league, almost in
every position.
“They have a really good
Spurs finished runners-up last
season but face Swansea tonight a
whopping 22 points behind Premier
League leaders Manchester City.
Pochettino insists his side won’t
be a serious force until they leave
Wembley and are settled into the
new White Hart Lane next season.
The Spurs boss (above) said:
“First of all we need to move to the
new stadium. It is so important for
the team, club and fans for everyone
to settle into the new stadium.
“The moment you are in the
new stadium, and you start to
feel that it is your home, then
you can be more strong.
“That will change completely the
atmosphere, and the vision from
the players will be different.
“Of course, for me, it is the
moment to say we are a real
contender. We are a contender now,
yes, and for the last two seasons we
were a contender, of course.
“With a solid structure we are
going to be real contenders – and
we must be real contenders.”
With top scorer Harry Kane
struggling with flu, Heung-Min Son
is set to lead the line tonight.
Son has scored nine goals this
season but Pochettino says he does
not get the credit he deserves
because playing with Kane is like
playing with Lionel Messi.
Pochettino said: “Us, the
coaching staff, give him the
credit that he deserves. Last
season he was very important.
“It’s like a player next to Messi
or Cristiano Ronaldo that
deserves a lot of credit.
“When you are next to Harry
Kane – who scores and scores,
and all that he achieves – it is
normal that the focus is more on
Harry Kane or on Messi or
Ronaldo than Son.
“Do the players appreciate him?
Yes, all the team love him. Not only
because of his performances but
because of how he is as a man.”
Son is idolised in his native South
Korea and has been called the
‘Asian David Beckham’.
Pochettino added: “That is what
we think. When we talk about David
Beckham, he is a massive icon in
the world.
‘‘Maybe Son is like this but here
he is so humble and such a normal
guy – and that makes him bigger.”

at the moment. They’re the best
team in the league and they will

Watford have lost six of their
last eight matches, while City’s
18-match winning run ended at
Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Asked how Watford will stop
them, Dutchman Janmaat said:
“It’s a good question.
“There’s always a way to find
a result – maybe they get a bad
day. You better stay at home if
you don’t go there for

Aston Villa 5 Bristol C 0
STEVE BRUCE claims
Jack The Lad has become
Jack The Man after Villa
hammered Bristol City.
One-time England
hopeful Jack Grealish, 22,
was involved in two goals
and hit the post as Villa
clinched their biggest win
since a 6-1 thrashing of
Sunderland in April 2013.
It was the best Grealish
has looked since missing
the first four months of the
season after damaging a
kidney during a pre-season
friendly.
Bruce said: “The injury
scared him and all of a
sudden he looks a man and
he’s just 22.
“The strength and
conditioning coach (Ollie
Stevenson) has done a
marvellous job in the gym
and he’s worked tirelessly
with him for five or six
months on his running
ability and his strength.
Angered
“We all know what a
good footballer he is but
he gave a really top
performance – certainly
his best under me.”
Villa moved up to fifth
and five points off the
automatic promotion slots
after making it back-toback wins.
It was 2-0 at half-time
after Scott Hogan headed
in ex-Robins winger Albert
Adomah’s cross, then
Robert Snodgrass hooked
in after Luke Steele tipped
away Hogan’s header.
Snodgrass curled in his
second after a 50-yard run
by Grealish to make it
three, substitute Birkir
Bjarnason scored with his
first contribution, then
Conor Hourihane drilled in
the fifth.
City boss Lee Johnson
admitted their last-gasp
defeat to leaders Wolves
48 hours earlier had taken
too much out of his squad.
Johnson was also angered
after Bruce controlled a
ball that flew into touch.
“It’s interesting Villa fans
mocking us and Steve
Bruce flicking balls up all
over the gaffe,” he said.

and celebrates (below)
STOKE manager Mark
Hughes’ selection gamble backfired as he
watched Newcastle help
themselves to a huge win.
Hughes brought his big names back
for this game but ended up with nothing
to show for it.
Ayoze Perez’s 73rd-minute goal was
enough to give the Geordies three vital
points as they registered only their
second win in 13 games.
Hughes was forced to take the agonising walk back to the tunnel with a
significant section of the home crowd
calling for his head.

And those fans will be playing on
chairman Peter Coates’ mind
as he ponders whether to
give Hughes more time
despite Stoke’s plunge
down the table.

side. But it is this defeat that will sting
even more and Hughes won’t need telling
he might have lost the lot with his highrisk strategy.
Newcastle keeper Karl Darlow made a
couple of great stops to really twist the
knife, but there’s no arguing the Toon
were worth their victory.
They have been on the slide, with only
10 points from the previous 48
available, and Stoke clearly saw
them as one of the weaker sides
they could exploit.

Middlesbrough boss Pulis said:
“It’s a great result for two reasons.

their fourth defeat in five matches.

Burton struck either side of

Dyer doubled their lead with a cool
finish five minutes after the break.
Though Wednesday, who have lost
two on the spin, pressed for a route
back into the contest, the Brewers
finished off their victory in style as
Naylor grabbed another at the death.
The Owls’ caretaker boss Lee

side’s performance as “embarrassing

Mahrez is
so magical
Puel hails ace Riyad
by RALPH ELLIS
THE good news for Claude
Puel is he can finally pick
midfielder Adrien Silva.
The bad is that he has 30 more days
to sweat on keeping Riyad Mahrez.
Portuguese ace Silva, ironically
wearing the number 14, made his debut
for the Foxes four months after his
£22m move from Sporting Lisbon was
completed 14 seconds too late.
But it was Mahrez, who has never
formally withdrawn a summer transfer
request, who was the star of the show.
The Algerian scored one brilliant
volley, made another goal for Islam
Slimani and was involved in everything
that Leicester did well.
Better
After a sensational two months since
Puel took over, in which he has been
involved in 10 of the club’s 22 goals,
Mahrez is back in the shop window.
“There is speculation about Riyad
but I want to keep my best players,”
said Puel. “It was a complete game
for him, with and without the ball.
“Why is he so much better since I’ve
been here? Because I speak French!
‘‘We have tried to find ways to win
matches and Riyad and other players
are enjoying the games. We are getting
the ball to him more and he can make a
bigger difference.”
Last summer Leicester rejected £32m
from Roma for Mahrez. They demanded
£50m and will want far more now.
After a dismal first-half he lit the
game up, adjusting superbly to meet
Marc Albrighton’s floated cross in the

53rd minute after Huddersfield had
failed to clear a corner. Then he played
a killer ball for Shinji Okazaki, only for
the Japanese ace to be pulled up for a
foul before he stuck the ball in the net.
But there was no stopping Mahrez
and he served the ball up on a plate
for Slimani – the club’s £30m record
buy but a flop until now – to lift it
over the advancing Jonas Lossl for
his first league goal since April.
Mahrez had been subbed to a standing
ovation by the time Albrighton turned
home Demarai Gray’s cross.
Huddersfield’s best chance came early
on when Danny Williams ran on to
Aaron Mooy’s pass, but he landed in a
heap after a Harry Maguire challenge.
Town boss David Wagner said: “I
think Danny looked to slow down and
get the foul when he could have
accelerated and tried to score.
“We gave away the first goal and then
you must give credit to Leicester.”

James spares Farke flak
JAMES MADDISON hit the winner to
spare boss Daniel Farke even more flak.
Farke enraged Norwich fans by resting
six key players at Burton, which ended
goalless, to save them for this showdown.
But with Millwall leading at the break, it
needed Maddison and fellow midfielder
Tom Trybull to get their boss off the hook.
Farke said: “It was hard at half-time but
thank God we found the right words and
the second half was brilliant. It was like a
little final for us but now we can relax.”
Former Norwich striker Steve Morison
had silenced the jeers of the Carrow Road
crowd with a sensational half-volley strike
on the turn just seconds before the break.
That made it two goals in two games for

Morison, who scored the winner against
QPR on Friday, after going goalless in his
previous 24 appearances this season.
But Trybull scored with a terrific diving
header from a 52nd-minute free-kick
before Maddison clinched the points with
his seventh goal of the season from Alex
Pritchard’s 77th-minute reverse pass.
The Lions are still without an away win
all season and manager Neil Harris said:
“I’m raging with my players because our
second-half performance was a disgrace.
“We didn’t get near the ball or press
them and their first goal was abysmal. It
was unacceptable and we must do better.”

Gary’s Bolt out

GARY MADINE’S 25-yard
thunderbolt lifted Bolton
out of the bottom three.
The Trotters striker only
volunteered for free-kicks
this week but curled home
his ninth goal of the
season on 20 minutes to
give his side their first
back-to-back wins in the
Championship since 2014.
And Bolton boss Phil
Parkinson said: “He came
to us and said he wanted
to take free-kicks, I wish
he’d let us know sooner.
“I didn’t realise how
good he actually was.”
Sunderland are keeping
track of the 27-year-old,
who recently went teetotal
in an effort to mend his
bad-boy image.
Madine was arrested

season and spent time in

career. But Parkinson
believes the former
Sheffield Wednesday man
has benefited from
turning over a new leaf.
He added: “This is a
player who’s finally starting
to fulfil his potential.”
Nigel Adkins has
managed just one win in
six since taking over from
Leonid Slutsky and
watched as Jarrod Bowen
came closest when he
struck the post.
The Tigers boss said: “I
have belief we are going
to pick up some victories.”

Liverpool defender Ragnar
Klavan scored a injury-time

and character. You need to
win your average games,
win with attitude when you
are not 100 per cent.
“We need wins on the not

moment when we scored. I
was never in doubt about the
character of my boys.”
Burnley boss Sean Dyche
was left frustrated, saying: “I
thought we had done
enough to earn another
point. So I am frustrated
with a soft goal right at the
end but impressed with the
mentality overall.”

LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp
expected a war against Burnley
and his loyal foot soldiers rose
to the challenge to battle to
victory at Turf Moor.
The free-flowing, exciting football to which
Kopites have become accustomed was
replaced by Liverpool gritting their teeth and
scrapping for every ball.
Sadio Mane scored a brilliant opener only
for Liverpool to be pegged back by Johann
Berg Gudmundsson’s diving header.
But Liverpool consolidated their place in
the Premier League’s top four with a dramatic
added-time winner from Ragnar Klavan.
Snapped
It was just reward for a battling defensive
display as the Reds rolled their sleeves up.
Liverpool had scored 30 goals in eight away
games before this clash, but Burnley proved
to be stubborn opposition.
The Clarets put high balls into the box,
chased lost causes and snapped at the
heels of the visitors.
Sean Dyche’s men may have conceded three
goals in their last home against Tottenham
as Harry Kane ran riot.
But they showed the kind of dogged
determination which had seen them concede
the same number in their previous nine home
games combined. Liverpool were without
■
NOD’S GIFT:
Klavan heads the
winner for Liverpool
in-form Philippe Coutinho. He was officially
unavailable to face the Clarets because of a
thigh injury – although rumours linking the
Brazilian star with a £130m switch to
Barcelona continue to bubble.
Deprived of two of their ‘Fab Four’ in
Coutinho and Mohamed Salah, who was out
with a groin problem, Liverpool were like
The Beatles without Lennon and McCartney.
Liverpool sorely missed Coutinho pulling
the strings in midfield and Salah’s pace to get
in behind Burnley’s two banks of four.
This was a game when Liverpool needed
Mane to step up and recapture his scintillating
form of last season, and while he largely
struggled he provided a key moment of
quality just after the hour.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain intelligently
found Trent Alexander-Arnold on the right
flank and the full-back’s deflected cross found
Mane in the middle of the box.
The Senegal star controlled the ball with
his back to goal, turned and struck an
unstoppable shot past Burnley keeper Nick
Pope and into the roof of the net.
Not long after a brilliant save from Pope
kept out a thumping shot from AlexanderArnold which had looked destined to end
up in the top-right corner of the net.
Burnley equalised three minutes from time
when Charlie Taylor’s cross from the left was
flicked on by substitute Sam Vokes, and the
stooping Gudmundsson headed past recalled
keeper Simon Mignolet.
But Liverpool hit back in added time when
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s free-kick was headed
back across goal by Dejan Lovren – to leave
centre-back partner Klavan to score with a
simple header from a few yards out.

HOWE MAD
WAS THAT?
Cherries do it
ugly to grab
late point
by IAN WINROW
BRIGHTON

BOURNEMOUTH 2
EDDIE HOWE served up an
early contender for understatement of the year when
he admitted Bournemouth’s
late equaliser “wasn’t one
for the purists”.
There won’t be many crazier scrambles in the top flight this season after
the pinball exchange that led to
Callum Wilson’s 79th-minute strike.
And Brighton had only themselves
to blame for letting two points slip
after a game that produced 42 efforts
on target – more than any other
Premier League game this season.
Chris Hughton’s side led twice –
first through Anthony Knockaert’s
fifth-minute effort, and again when
Glenn Murray struck early in the
second half after Steve Cook had
equalised in the 33rd minute.
But the Seagulls undid their good
work when they made four awful
attempts to clear a corner before
Shane Duffy blasted the ball against
the Cherries’ Adam Smith and Wilson
stuck out a leg to turn it in.
Gutted
Howe said: “It wasn’t one for the
purists, was it? But we’ll take that.
“It was a mass of bodies and hacked
clearances and Callum claiming the
goal. As all great strikers do, he was in
the right place at the right time.”
Hughton was gutted his side let their
lead slip for a second time – although
he was more concerned with the way
Cook was allowed to head home from a
first-half corner.
He said: “The second one can happen.
You can’t apportion any blame.
“The timing wasn’t the best but I
would have been more disappointed
with the first goal rather than the
second.
“It’s an area we have tried to work
on and we’ve conceded too many goals
from corners.”
Knockaert gave the home side the
perfect start when he turned home
Jose Izquierdo’s cross.
But Bournemouth worked their way
back into the game when Cook rose to
head the leveller.
Izquierdo should have restored
Brighton’s lead just before the break.
But he again turned provider when he
set up Murray for the second.
The Colombian then wasted a chance

foul-up
■ by DAVID WOODS
PEP GUARDIOLA has
branded the Premier
League’s festive fixtures
a “disaster” for players.
Runaway league leaders
Manchester City face
Watford at home today
having seen Crystal
Palace end their 18-match
winning run with a
goalless draw on Sunday.
Guardiola lost Brazilian
striker Gabriel Jesus for
up to two months with a
serious knee injury.
Guardiola believes the
busy festive schedule is
putting players at risk.
“If you tell me that
technically, physically it’s
good for the players – no,
it’s a disaster,” said the
Spaniard.
“But the league is the
league. They decide at
Christmas times to do
that, and of course we are
going to adapt.
“Sometimes you have
three days’ recovery,
sometimes four, sometimes two, everybody is
the same.

“I can give my opinion,

Fellow bosses Jose

West Brom boss Alan

The Baggies have
complained and Pardew
said: “It’s terrible. We all

“That is the bigger issue
than anything today. We
have got two days of
Premier League football,

LICK THAT: Lingard
is delighted after
his stunning second
goal for United
Second-half strikes from Anthony
Martial and Jesse Lingard ended a
run of three straight draws as United
handed Sam Allardyce his second
defeat in charge of Everton.
But it was the second-half class
from captain Paul Pogba that really
inspired United to get 2018 off to a
bright start after a dark end to last
year.
Not only have they watched rivals
City gallop clear in the Premier
League title race after their results
over Christmas, but they have also
been dragged into the top-four battle.
It looked like it would be another
dour draw for Mourinho’s men after
an opening 45 minutes to forget, but
they eventually got the three points
that lifted them back up to second.
Rival fans of these two joked that
this was the battle of the buses,
owing to both managers’ tendency
to park that vehicle in big games.
For those who love to over-analyse
football, the tactical nuances of how
Allardyce’s men were controlling the
pace of the game in the first-half and
not allowing United to get going was
something they could enjoy.
But for those who prefer attractive,
attacking football that is easy on the

eye it was a painful watch.Both sides
waited to counter, neither wanted
to move away from their defensive
positions.
There were some chances. Nikola
Vlasic dipped a shot just over the bar
for Everton before Marcos Rojo gave
Toffees keeper Jordan Pickford an
easy save with a tame header from a
Pogba cross at the other end.
Special
Pogba would go close himself before
the break, but it wasn’t until after the
restart that United really got going as
Mourinho released them from their
shackles to allow them to attack.
There was a clear improvement
from the visitors and, in particular,
that man Pogba – who ran the game in
the second half.
But it was Juan Mata who forced
Pickford into a decent stop from
distance and then cracked the post.
It still needed something special to
break the deadlock and that came in
the 57th minute.
Former United captain Wayne
Rooney was Everton’s best player, but
he was the one who gave the ball away
that allowed Ander Herrera to start
the counter-attack.
Mata found Pogba, who teed-up
Martial – and the France forward
took one touch before curling home
from the edge of the area.
Pogba then went close with a longrange strike before a header spun off
his dyed hair as he tried to nod into an
empty goal.
Oumar Niasse fluffed a chance to
pull
Everton
level
after
the
introduction of James McCarthy for
Rooney. Even though the change was
booed by the home crowd, it gave the
home side a spell of pressure.
Lingard then ensured the win with
nine minutes to go with a sweet strike
to grab his seventh goal in his last
nine appearances.
All the talk beforehand was whether
Martial could play through the middle
in the absence of the injured Romelu
Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
But it is Lingard’s goals that have
kept United going during Lukaku’s
dry run and, after the impressive
Pogba assisted, he beat Michael
Keane before curling home.
How Everton could do with an
attacking midfielder chipping in with
some goals as they wait to see if Cenk
Tosun’s £25m move from Besiktas will
get done to add some much needed
firepower up front.
It was another defeat for Allardyce
after his side lost at Bournemouth on
Saturday.
They failed to register a single shot

draws. Mourinho even
suggested Scholes (below)
was jealous because Pogba
earns over £200,000-a-week
– and told the ex-England
star to try to be “25 per cent”
as successful a manager as
him.
He said: “Paul
(Pogba) tries to do
his best all the
time. Sometimes
he plays very
well, sometimes
he plays well,
sometimes he
doesn’t play so
well.
“It’s not Paul’s
fault that he made
much more money than
Paul Scholes. It’s just the
way football is.
“If Paul (Scholes) one day
decides to be a manager,
I wish that he can be 25 per
cent as successful as
myself. If he’s 25 per cent,
he’ll be quite happy.” Lingard
also hit out at the team’s
critics, tweeting: “Don’t even
talk too much” after he had
celebrated his goal by
pressing his finger against
his lips.
Romelu Lukaku missed
last night’s game at his
old club through
concussion
protocols after he
injured his head
in the clash with
the Saints but
could face
Derby in the FA
Cup on Friday.
Everton’s bid to
replace Lukaku hit
a snag last night as
Besiktas demanded £27m
for striker Cenk Tosun, with
the Toffees believing £25m
was enough for a deal.
Boss Sam Allardyce said:
“Our deal is in and it is up to
them whether they accept
our deal or not.”

DEFIANT Mark Hughes hit back at angry

Owner and chairman Peter Coates
watched from the stands as fans turned
on Hughes at full time after Ayoze Perez’s
72nd-minute winner for Newcastle.
Potters boss Hughes stormed out of an
awkward media conference, where he
was forced to defend his record.
Earlier he said: “It’s difficult. We have to
take it on the chin, stick our shoulders
out, puff our chests out. It’s not going to

“Things are going against us and it’s

“The noise is to be expected. That

bother me. We need to do something
about it but the reason people are
disappointed is because of the high

standards we have set here. Those
standards were set by me and my staff.”
Hughes was furious that his decision to
rest six players for the 5-0 weekend
mauling by Chelsea was questioned after
yesterday’s defeat.

but I don’t see why my decision at the
weekend is being questioned more than
