The hellraiser decided on a whim to emulate his music hero Keith Moon by launching the TV out of the eighth ﬂoor of a hotel. He loved every moment of his expensive “booze hound” prank in Prague, Czech Republic, in 2002. But hotel bosses gave him a £41.2k bill alongside guitarist and best pal Zakk Wylde.

DRINK-DRIVE SINCLAIR IN COP RACE JIBE Ace wets himself as arrested ® by JERRY LAWTON MATCH Of The Day pundit Trevor Sinclair was axed by the BBC yesterday after calling a policeman a “white c***”. The ex-England and Manchester City footballer wet himself in a police car after he was caught twice drink-driving. Sinclair – who has worked for Show Racism The Red Card – accused police of racism and asked the ofﬁcer who arrested him: “Is it because I am black?’’ As he was transferred to the back of a police van he became “more confrontational and aggressive” and branded the ofﬁcer a “white c***”, a court heard. The 44-year-old, who also played for West Ham and QPR, admitted drinkdriving and using racially aggravated threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour towards a police ofﬁcer when he appeared at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court. He was given 150 BANNED: Former footballer Sinclair hours’ community service and banned from driving for 20 months. He was also ordered to pay arresting ofﬁcer Pc Gareth Evans £500 in compensation.

District Judge Wendy Lloyd – who was given a breakdown of CCTV of the incident at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court – asked for a report ahead of sentencing on January 17. Judge Lloyd added: “This is a prolonged assault, not just one episode of violence. I need to be reassured this will never be repeated.” ® and criminal damage. District Judge Jeff Brailsford told Sinclair his use of language had been “particularly sad” when the footballer had worked long hours to combat racism. Last night a BBC spokesman said he had been employed on a freelance basis and they had no scheduled plans to use him on Match Of The Day or Final Score. Jim Mowbray, prosecuting, said police found Sinclair’s Tesla X60d car in the middle of the road in Blackpool after he collided with a woman who stepped into his path when she got out of a taxi. Pc Evans said: “I asked Mr Sinclair what had happened. “It appeared to me he was drunk, unsteady on his feet and his eyes were glazed.’’ A roadside breath test showed 72mcg (micrograms) of alcohol in 100ml (millilitres) of breath – the legal limit being 35mcg. As he searched him, Pc Evans discovered Sinclair’s trousers were wet and that he had urinated while sitting in the police car. A van was called for and the footballer called the ofﬁcer a “white c***” as the doors were closed on him. Pc Evans described Sinclair’s behaviour as “awful”, adding: “I’m not a racist. His behaviour was extremely racist.’’ Following the incident the footballer tweeted: “Racist old bill all over the Sinclair residence again tonight. Thank god as a black man ive not fallen asleep again.’’ Nick Freeman, mitigating, said Sinclair, from Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, was “totally appalled at his behaviour”. “He’s embarrassed, genuinely contrite and ﬁrst and foremost would like to apologise to Pc Evans.” firstname.lastname@example.org DAILY STAR, Wednesday, January 3, 2018 7 Spectacular sun & moon – but then...

Forecasters warned there was a “danger to life” as hurricane-force gales sweep in from the Atlantic. People are being urged to “stay indoors” as much as possible amid fears of widespread road and rail chaos, and damage caused by debris. And coastal areas have been warned of the danger of ﬂooding, with “treacherous conditions” along the coast yesterday. Weather experts warned things were going to get worse today, with yellow warnings issued for large areas of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and southern Scotland. Last night, a woman was ﬁghting for life after being swept into the sea. The holidaymaker was hit by a freak wave as she walked on The Lizard in Cornwall on New Year’s Day. Initial reports said she had died, but it was later revealed she is on a life-support machine in hospital in Truro. Meanwhile, forecasters warned that the storm will trigger power cuts, and mobile phone masts could be brought down. The Met Ofﬁce said: “Wednesday daytime sees a very blustery day, with squally gusts accompanying showers in many areas.” They said 80-90mph gusts were possible on exposed Irish Sea coasts, with inland gusts forecast to exceed 60mph, adding: “Power cuts and disruption to other services – mobile phones for example – may also occur, while injuries from ﬂying debris are possible.” ®Ê CALM BEFORE THE STORM: Glasto Tor.

Ms Tudos, who also called herself Julie, was found dead in Finsbury Park, near her north London home, last Wednesday having been missing since December 24. A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the abdomen and a head injury. Ms Tudos, who police said was of Russian and Greek origin, was last seen by friends at around 8pm on Christmas Eve when she headed for a bus home from Camden. She was due to meet them at another friend’s home in Enﬁeld, north London, later that evening before spending Christmas Day there, but never arrived. Police said CCTV footage showed her on the periphery of the park shortly after 8.20pm. Her body was found three days later in a disused building in its grounds. 8 DAILY STAR, Wednesday, January 3, 2018 THE WIFE KILLER Brute faces death in jail A SERIAL killer faces dying in jail after bumping off a third lover, it emerged yesterday. Theodore Johnson, 64, battered mum-of-four Angela Best, 51, with a claw hammer before throttling her to death with a dressing gown cord when she started up a new relationship after they split. He then threw himself under an express train at Cheshunt railway station, Herts, but survived despite suffering horriﬁc injuries. When police went to his home in Islington, north London, they found Angela’s body in the living room with a belt still wrapped around her neck and a bloodstained hammer nearby. A post mortem revealed she had been hit at least six times over the head with the tool. Wheelchair-bound Johnson initially admitted manslaughter by diminished responsibility and denied murder. But he ® by JERRY LAWTON changed his plea to the more serious charge to guilty on the ﬁrst day of his trial at the Old Bailey yesterday. The court heard the garage worker has been previously convicted of the manslaughters of two previous partners. He killed wife Yvonne Johnson in November 1981 when he shoved her off the balcony of their ninth-ﬂoor ﬂat in Wolverhampton after smashing a vase over her head during a row. Twelve years later he was convicted of killing new partner Yvonne Bennett – the mother of his child – due to diminished responsibility because he was suffering depression and a personality disorder. He strangled her with a belt after she had an affair with another man in an attack chillingly similar to the one he was to launch on Angela, 23 years later. Johnson will be sentenced on Friday. firstname.lastname@example.org Hayley Hoff to work...

Saeed Noori, 32, was charged with 18 counts of attempted murder following last month’s incident outside Flinders Street station in Melbourne, which injured 19 people. Detectives in Victoria upgraded one of the charges following the death of an 83-year-old from the city on December 29. The charge was ﬁled at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court yesterday. Noori, a former Afghan refugee who is now an Australian citizen, also faces one charge of conduct endangering life. The defendant, from the Heidelberg West area of Melbourne, has been remanded in custody to appear in court again on May 30. Of those injured in the incident on December 21, nine were foreign nationals. Three people remain in hospital. TENNIS hero Sir Andy Murray sparked fears his glittering career could be over after spilling his heart out on his battle with a hip injury. The two-time Wimbledon champ was ﬂooded with messages of support as he told fans how he is “really hurting inside” after six months out. The 30-year-old said in an emotional message he would give anything to be back out there and misses the game. Alongside the Instagram message he uploaded a snap of him as a schoolboy, right, which he chose because “the little kid inside me just wants to play tennis and compete”. Fans swamped social media in reaction, paying tribute to the British No1, with some fearing he could be forced to retire. One said: “This is brave, open and honest from Andy. “It shows a sportsman hurting because he can’t do what he loves. “I think it’s very worrying but keeping everything crossed.” Another wrote: “Very sad to see Britain’s best ever tennis player succumbing to the nightmare STAR A RARE copy of the 800-yearold Magna Carta has been purchased for £3,400 at auction by Canterbury Cathedral’s archives team and has been returned to the cathedral library.

The star has now pulled out of the Brisbane International played Down Under, seen as a warm-up to the Australian Open.

SEAPLANE ‘STALLED’ ® by ED RILEY AIR crash experts think the seaplane that plunged into a river and wiped out a Brit family may have stalled. Investigators said the aircraft could have banked too steeply before witnesses saw it nosedive into the water near Sydney. VICTIM: Richard It sunk in seconds killing businessman Richard Cousins, 58, his ﬁancée Emma Bowden, her daughter Heather, 11, and his sons Ed, 23, and William, 25. Authorities are also now probing links to a tragedy in Canada two years ago Link to 2nd Brit crash tragedy when another British family were killed when the same model of plane crashed. Kevin Bowe, of the Seaplane Pilots Association of Australia, said the most likely cause of the crash was the single engine DHC-2 Beaver banking too steeply or too slowly. He said: “It is quite hilly in that area and a downdraft may have caught the pilot out. “If you get a situation like this and it nosedives, it goes straight to the bottom.” Operator Sydney Seaplanes grounded all its aircraft as the investigation into the crash, in which the pilot Gareth Morgan also died, was launched.

The collision forced the dad of one to change course and diverted him away when Abedi set off his rucksack bomb at the Manchester Arena. Martin was just 2ft outside the blast zone where 22 people died and the closest person to the bomber to survive. The football agent, from Heath Charnock, Lancs, was told he will never walk again but was allowed home for Christmas. He said: “You either get on with it or you don’t and I’ve never been one to lie around in self-pity. “I’m only 41, I’ve still got a lot to do. I’ve still got the use of my hands thankfully and I can still talk and think.” “We actually bumped into the terrorist. “I brushed shoulders with him so instead of going straight on we went a different way and that’s what probably saved our lives. “We were only 2ft outside the blast zone where everybody died. “I knew straight away it was a bomb. “Everything was blurry. I had ringing in my ears.” Martin continued: “I must have gone unconscious ath s o m e h point and when I woke up I was laid on my side and I couldn’t move. “I was pretty much bleeding to death. “One of the coppers said to me afterward: ‘Never underestimate how serious it was, it’s literally like somebody shooting you 22 times’.” By the time he arrived at hospital he had lost so much blood he was barely alive.

Ant said: “Tom Hardy would be a good shout because I think he’s been through the hardships himself, he’d understand it. “He’s played a soldier in Dunkirk so he would have the military knowledge. “I think if I gave him a script of my life it would probably be one of those four- or ﬁve-hour movies. “I’m only 36 but I’ve always said that if my time’s up then I’ll go having lived a full life because I’ve done so much.” FORMER military veteran Ant Middleton is gunning for Towie, Big Brother, X Factor and Strictly.

He is sick of people on TV crying over breakups, blurting out sob stories and whingeing about their problems. Speaking at the launch of the new series of SAS: Who Dares Wins, hardman Ant said: “I don’t like reality TV. Your Big Brothers and Towie... stuff like that. “I’ve got nothing against the people, good luck to them. But I just don’t want to hear about other people’s problems. Tempting “I’ve got my own problems to deal with, my own life to lead, so why the hell would I want to know about anyone else’s?” And despite a tempting offer, he won’t be doing Strictly either. He said: “I’m not that kind of high-end, glossy character. “I’m in my area, a bit rugged round the edges and willing to strip myself down to my bare bones to succeed and fail. All that glitz, glamour, the sequins, I’ll leave for celebrities to do.” The programme sees 25 “recruits” put through gruelling physical and psychological challenges – like the ones Ant went through in his career – to see if they would be cut out for the SAS. ¬ÊIt launches this Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4. ®ÊÊ R-ANT: Strictly.

And Ant revealed: “They stood toe-to-toe in the ring for a ﬁght and Chris thought it was right to choose his brother as his opponent. “I don’t think I would have chosen my brother, I’d rather see my brother ﬁght someone else.

Sly slackers have revealed the top 50 ways to swerve the daily grind as the nation goes back after the holidays. Scrawling tasks on Post-it notes to trick bosses into thinking workers are busy is a popular tactic. Skivers also revealed that striding quickly through the ofﬁce throws employers off the scent of a sneaky break. And some bone idle workers have even changed their computer settings so that their PCs never go into sleep mode, meaning no-one ever realises they are taking a /lmx ® by RUTH McKEE long break in the kitchen. The slacking study also found that some workers book meeting rooms simply to snooze or gossip. Geoffrey Dennis, chief executive of international animal charity SPANA, which carried out the research, said: “Returning to work after the holiday season can come as a shock to the system – and no doubt some workers will be easing themselves back in slowly this week. “Many people in this country undoubtedly work very hard, but it’s clear from these ﬁndings that ofﬁce workers are ﬁnding creative ways of putting their feet up for a break.” firstname.lastname@example.org Cream Camel Black Expertly designed to offer complete comfort and relaxation.

Tonight a new Channel 4 show lifts the lid on the latest adventures of the Radfords, Britain’s biggest family. And viewers will see parents Sue, 42, and Noel, 47, welcome in yet another new arrival to their bulging brood – their 20th! Noel says: “We’re addicted to having all these kids. We just love it.” The Radfords ﬁrst began letting the cameras in to chart life in their madcap household ﬁve years ago when they had a mere 16 sprogs. Now they have Chris, 28, Sophie, 24, Chloe, 22, Jack, 20, Daniel, 18, Luke, 17, Millie, 16, Katie, 15, James, 14, Ellie, 12, Aimee, 11, Josh, 10, Max, nine, Tillie, seven, Oscar, six, Casper, ﬁve, Hallie, two, and Phoebe, 18 months. And the new outing of the reality show sees the family, from Morecambe, Lancs, YpA8D<JDFFI< joined by 8lb 6oz Archie, who was born last Autumn. Sue and Noel ﬁrst met when they were just seven years old, growing up as neighbours. Eventually they started dating and Sue fell pregnant at just 14, in 1989, giving birth to her ﬁrst child, Chris. Hitched After getting hitched to Noel at 17, the pair just couldn’t get enough of having children. Noel says: “We set out to maybe have three children but enjoyed having the kids around so just carried on.” Noel had a vasectomy after their ninth child – but had it reversed when the couple’s love of little ones meant they changed their minds and set about expanding the clan once more.

But it didn’t deter her from trying again and the Radfords have gone on to have three more. Despite being considered “high risk” by doctors, Sue gave birth to Archie after “just a few pushes” at the Royal Lancaster Inﬁrmary in September. Perhaps surprisingly, given the number of mouths to feed, the Radfords don’t claim beneﬁts – apart from child beneﬁt. They survive by running a pie-making business, with older kids, Chloe and Daniel chipping in to help run the ﬁrm. Sue says: “Not all big families are on beneﬁts. Most work hard for what they’ve got.” Nevertheless running their 10-bedroom home – bought for £240,000 in 2004 – isn’t easy. The weekly shopping bill comes in at around £250 and in that time they get through 130 pints of milk, more than 20 loaves of bread, 14 boxes of cereal and 28 toilet rolls. The family, who get around in a 15-seater minivan, recently posted a video of the festive chaos as the youngsters piled into their sitting room to open their Yuletide gifts. Christmas dinner has to be served, explains Noel, “like a conveyor belt”. Each year they get through a whopping three turkeys, 3.5 kilos of potatoes and 56 Yorkshire puddings! Privacy As well as the drama of Sue’s latest pregnancy with Archie, the new show charts the latest adventures of the Radfords as they toy with moving from their noisy house into an even bigger property – with some of the youngsters craving more privacy. Somehow, amid cooking piles of sausages for all those hungry nippers, the couple even manage to organise a trip with their super-sized family to Florida, as they celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. In fact, despite the pressures on budgets, the family enjoy a foreign holiday annually, spending about £30,000 a year keeping the kids clothed and fed. However, Noel does admit to struggling to remember all his children’s dates of birth. On top of their own offspring, Sue and Noel are now grandparents too. Their second eldest, Sophie, who is married to electrical wholesaler Joe Broadley, has three children. But the Radfords say they are ﬁnally thinking about calling it a day when it comes to having any more children – saying Archie could be their last. Although Noel says he won’t be getting a second vasectomy he admits: “It was going to end at some point.” While Sue says: “You have to stop somewhere.” So how do they cope? She laughs: “You get used to it. To us, it is completely normal everyday life.” ¬Ê20 Kids And Counting is on Channel 4 at 9pm tonight.

AND EVERY DAY I crave a ﬁlthy liaison Friend’s cooking disaster 2017 was a really boring year for me. Nothing really happened and now I’m determined to let rip. I’ve got to a stage where I crave risk and filthy sex. There’s a guy at my work who is making it abundantly clear that he fancies me. At the Christmas party he was all over me like a scarf. We snogged under the mistletoe and everyone cheered. My long-term partner is nice enough but there’s no getting away from the fact that we’re often more like brother and sister these days. I know that an affair will make me feel vital and vibrant again. Dare I go there? Are there actually any rules anymore in these post-Tinder days? Everyone else is at it as far as I can make out. A FEW months ago my friend offered to do the catering for my husband’s birthday. I was really busy with work and was grateful for the offer. She isn’t a professional caterer but I did pay her for the job. Unfortunately, she didn’t store or cook the chicken properly and several of our guests were violently sick. It was so embarrassing. As I had paid her in advance I thought she should give me the money back. She disagreed and we haven’t spoken since. Now I’m hearing rumours that she’s accusing me of keeping a dirty house – that’s why the guests got sick at the party. The cheek of it! My fridge is spotless. She’s trying to salvage her reputation because I hear she plans to open a café. Apparently she’s even put it on social media about me bullying her. I’m furious. Picture posed by model JANE SAYS: I don’t think you can claim that everyone is “at it”, just because certain people use hook-up apps. An affair with your colleague would cause so much hurt and suffering – and you know it. Your partner would be devastated, your boss wouldn’t be impressed and you’d be left filled with guilt and selfloathing. Why not put the pent-up energy you’re experiencing to better use with your partner? Suggest a romantic weekend away, date nights and early bed times. You and he are clearly in a dip and, I suspect, he’s as frustrated as you are. WORRIES PUT ME ON EDGE I’M like a swan – calm on the outside but I’m paddling frantically beneath the surface of the water. Friends and family think I’m organised and together. They marvel at how I keep so many plates spinning in the air. But the reality is that my life is one, long anxiety trip. Far from being calm, cool and collected I’m one seething mass of worry and insecurity. I fret about everything from my children and my health to bills and the future. I never relax. I never allow myself a day off to have fun. I go to bed at night with the worries of the world on my shoulders. My husband constantly tells me to relax but I physically can’t. Sweating To other people I have a great life. I’m married to a loving man, my children are successful and healthy and money isn’t a worry. But I can’t enjoy any of my blessings because I’m always so anxious. I’m not good in social situations and am always worried about things going wrong. I dread parties – either giving or attending them – and often feign illness and lock myself away in order to avoid people. I’m even on edge with old friends and family. I know that I should pull myself together and make the most of my situation but I just can’t. On a really bad day I can feel physically ill. I experience nausea and excessive sweating. I stutter and generally make a INSECURE: She looks calm and capable on the outside but is torn by a sense of inadequacy complete idiot of myself. Feelings of inadequacy overwhelm me. I want to start this New Year afresh. I want to be a better person. But how? JANE SAYS: It must have taken a huge amount of courage to write this letter and I applaud your honesty. Anxiety is a condition that affects one in 20 people and slightly more women than men. Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) can make it difficult for individuals to perform everyday tasks, because feelings of inade- quacy and fear are overwhelming. Your husband needs to understand how you’re feeling, so that you can get the help and support you need together. So it’s vital you visit your GP for treatment. Causes of GAD can range from your personal situation to a chemical imbalance and your genes. You must be really honest with your GP about any past experiences or traumas which may be affecting you now. He or she should then talk to you about medication and counselling.

WRITE to: JUST JANE, Daily Star, 10 Lower Thames Street, London EC3R 6EN or email jane.o’email@example.com JANE SAYS: You’ve got to sort this out face-to-face. Go round to this estranged friend and point out that posting insults on social media is immature. She may not be prepared to admit liability but you’re still getting over your recent sickness and the last thing you need is any more grief. If you and she really can’t agree who was at fault regarding the food poisoning, then you’ll have to let it go. But if she really is planning to open an establishment of her own, she has to have it pointed out to her that it must be spotlessly clean and immaculate – and follow all food hygiene rules – and that you will speak to the authorities if you have any concerns or worries whatsoever. Misery after one-off sex I HAD sex with a stranger during a Christmas night out and am now terrified that she has given me a sexuallytransmitted infection. I’m all itchy and feel dirty. I can’t bring myself to make love to my girlfriend and hate myself for playing around. I’m never usually a cheat and despise anyone who hunts for cheap sex. I don’t know what came over me that night. JANE SAYS: Get yourself along to your GP’s surgery as soon as possible so that you can be examined, diagnosed and prescribed medication as appropriate. The job of the GP is to listen and treat, not judge. You can always find your nearest sexual health centre by checking out the NHS Choices website. Always use a condom in future. Your girlfriend also needs to hear the truth for the sake of her own sexual health.

Stop worrying what others will think and obey your heart. Slip cash into a struggling relative’s wallet. Leave a gift card for groceries on a colleague’s desk. Send flowers to an ill neighbour. YOU’RE stable, efficient and practical. This attracts people who are longing to get organised. While you enjoy helping those who have difficulty leading orderly lives, you don’t like continually cleaning messes. Stop going above and beyond the call of duty. 0905 789 3803** 0905 789 3804** LEO Don’t be like that March 21 to April 20 YOU’RE a wonderful colleague, willing to go the extra mile.

The discomfort in my legs started during the day and carried on into the night Missing those leisurely country walks with the dog? BY MARK JONES I “ n the past couple of years I’ve noticed my legs are troubling me more and more. It all started when I retired. I used to be active and walk the dogs most days while keeping busy with my gardening and walking to the local shops.” “My legs are getting stiffer by the day” “I started to get leg cramps, aches, and discomfort in my lower legs and this usually started during the day but also carried on into the night which meant my sleep was terrible and I’d wake up the next morning feeling sluggish and lacking energy.” “I stopped being active and getting out and about” “The situation seemed to snowball over the years until I stopped being as active as I once was. I stopped taking the dogs for long walks, the garden became overgrown and my legs caused me all sorts of issues.” “It seemed the less active I became the worse the symptoms were. I was totally fed up and decided I needed to do HURRY - WHILST STOCKS LASTS-FROM £99.99 +p&p Can’t get to the Post Ofﬁce for those weekly essentials? something for myself as other routes didn’t produce any signiﬁcant results for me.” “My legs caused me all sorts of issues” “I read an article on being as active as possible. It explained that if we didn’t keep active or mobile then our health would suffer. I then came across this marvellous exercise device called Legex, which can be used whilst sitting and watching TV or reading your favourite book.

Conditions should suit and he absolutely loves Chepstow.” Rock The Kasbah, the 9-1 second favourite behind 7-1 market leader Beware The Bear, has won all of his three races over fences at Chepstow. The rescheduling of the marathon, postponed due to a waterlogged track, has worked in Johnson’s favour. Prevented The champion jockey took a heavy fall, the day before the race was originally scheduled to take place, and would have been prevented from riding due to concussion. After passing the mandatory concussion test, Johnson resumes riding at Ludlow today. Despite the heavy rain ravaging the country, a spokesman for Chepstow racecourse said: “We remain positive for racing to go ahead.” The race, which was first run in 1895, has a history of postponements – since 2010 the race has been rescheduled three times. The testing conditions are welcomed by Michael Scudamore who runs 9-1 chance Mysteree. “He’s ■ by CHRIS GOULDING certainly got plenty of stamina and seems to handle this ground, so he’s got the right sort of profile for the race,” said Scudamore, who was successful with Monbeg Dude in 2012. “By the looks of things he’s going to take on Chase The Spud again but on slightly better terms for us this time. “The form looks very strong, so hopefully he can turn the tide again.” Simon Clare, the PR Director for the race sponsor, is upbeat about the meeting’s new date. “The switch to a prime time slot on a Saturday afternoon will see even more money bet on the Coral Welsh Grand National than had it been run on December 27,” said Clare. “When the 2015 Welsh Grand National was moved to the first Saturday in January it proved to be the 14th biggest betting race of 2016, with the 2016 renewal of the race in December of that year being the 23rd biggest betting race of the year. “We are thrilled that the quality and the quantity of the entries are as strong second time around and it will once again be a terrific betting contest.” Nicky Henderson, the trainer of Beware The Bear, looks to be the man to follow on Saturday. He runs Apple’s Shakira, the worthy favourite for the Triumph Hurdle, at Chepstow. At Sandown he has an outstanding chance of taking the Tolworth Hurdle with Claimantakinforgan, an impressive winner at Ascot on his latest start. ■ ON SONG: Rock The Kasbah is entered for the Coral Welsh Grand National on Saturday ALPHA BET INDEX TO TODAY’S FOUR MEETINGS L - Ludlow M - Musselburgh S - Southwell W - Wolverhampton Aaron Lad....................L 1.50 Acrux ..........................

HANDICAP BLOT KING KEVIN (6.40, Wolverhampton) won very easily over course and distance last time and can defy 6lb penalty. ONE TO SWERVE PREROGATIVE (1.10, Southwell) is consistent and shown ability but no wins from 19 outings says it all and one to avoid.

Service provider: Spoke, 0333 202 3390. Today’s top Wolverhampton tips from Starform 5.10 A competitive heat but TAVENER (treble) looks the answer. It was a return to form for him last time over this course and distance when mugged on the line and beaten a short head. He is up a pound but is still a pound lower than when last successful on grass. Arnarson is yet to score after 14 attempts but has posted some solid efforts in defeat and the return to this trip should suit. The market may reflect the claims of Compass Hill, who makes his debut for a new yard after showing ability in Ireland. Arlecchino’s Leap has rather lost his way but does boast three course victories – two at this distance – and has slipped to a mark 9lb lower than when scoring here in 2016. He could cause a surprise if back to his best. KING KEVIN TO RULE THE ROOST has been on the back of Jack Of Diamonds for his last two wins and he is just 2lb higher for his Chelmsford success last month. There may be more to come from Bayston Hill who broke his Hill, all-weather duck at Lingfield comfortably. likely to go up more when reassessed. Rab Havlin, pictured, has been on board for those last four outings and is back on top again. Over the last 14 days Saeed Bin Suroor has a 100% strike rate with both his runners successful. He sends out Valley Of Light here, who starts handicap life on what appears a fair mark. He was beaten half-a-length by a 73-rated rival at Newcastle and has been given 67 today. Rossa Ryan 6.40 It wasn’t until his ninth outing that KING KEVIN (nap) finally broke his duck but he has made up for lost time and has now won three of his last four starts. His latest was a very easy success over course and distance for which he carries a penalty but is 7.10 Another competitive heat to finish the card but a good case can be made for SUNSHINEANDBUBBLES (nb). First of all he comes here on the back of a smooth victory at Southwell where he was partnered by the very capable Rossa Ryan, who reatins the ride. Sooqaan ended a long losing run when scoring over a furlong shorter but remains of interest off his present rating. Sheer Intensity is yet to score on the all-weather but has strung together a couple of decent performances. Ravenhoe has been out of sorts since winning at Pontefract in May but has slipped down the weights and is starting to look very well treated.

GIVE ’EM NOTHING Trapping in NLH is one thing, but giving away free cards in Pot-Limit Omaha is a dangerous game that’s best avoided. What seems like an unbeatable hand can become a loser on the very next deal. Suppose you hold Nine-Eight of Hearts-Seven of Clubs-Seven of Spades. You feel as happy as a well-watered dog in a hub cap factory when the ﬂop comes out SevenSix-Six giving you a full house…. CRAP TRAP …But if you get trappy and check back, giving free looks at the turn, an overcard could be dealt out giving any opponent holding a matching overpair a bigger full house than you. The result? Instead of trapping your opponent into giving you more chips, you end up trapping yourself into giving away a bigger load of chips. And then, as your Aussie mates like to say, you’ll be about as happy as a b*stard on Father’s Day!

And the England skipper reckons victory in Sydney in the fifth and final Test of this series would be the perfect foundation. “It’s really important to me and this squad to get a win off this tour and build on that for four years’ time,” said Root, whose side lost the first three Tests before drawing in Melbourne to avoid a whitewash. “The next time we come here we can’t look at it in a daunted way, or feel like there’s a massive gap between the two sides. “If we do things in the right way we’ve got a really good chance. “It’s going to be really important that we look at performing out here well from now and not too far later down the line, two years or a year in advance. “The planning for it has to start now.” Much of the build up to this trip Down Under was dominated by Ben Stokes’ absence, due to his arrest for his alleged involvement in a brawl outside a Bristol night- ■ from RODNEY WHITE in Sydney club. Then there was the fall-out from Jonny Bairstow’s headbutt on Aussie opener Cameron Bancroft in a Perth bar, followed by the revelation Ben Duckett had poured a drink over England team-mate Jimmy Anderson. Asked what England should have done differently, Root replied: “Make sure no-one is head-butting anyone and people were more sensible off the field on the back of what happened in the summer.” Tough But Root believes there has not been much wrong with England’s approach on the pitch. He said: “The way we’ve wanted to break down Australia and win over here has not necessarily been wrong. “We’ve just been out-skilled in these conditions and that’s tough to take. “That extra bit of pace could be very important next time round. It’s hard to plan for that. “That’s something that’s got to come quite naturally from some- where. It’s also been proved how big the spin department can be over here. “As a batting group, you’ve just got to be prepared to bat for long, long periods of time. “The characters currently in our squad have that desire and ability. “But it’s now making sure that leading up to that next Ashes series, which is a long long way off, there’s plenty of opportunities for guys to gain experience and come back really ready for it.” Mitchell Starc declared himself fit after a run out in the nets yesterday, following a fortnight resting his bruised heel. That was not good news for England’s hopes of signing off with a win. Root said no decision had been made on Mason Crane’s possible call-up but it seems likely that if he does come in, it will be at the expense of Tom Curran rather than Moeen Ali.

Perfect 10 for Rob’s high Riders ROB PATERNOSTRO is delighted with his side’s recent form as Leicester Riders head into the New Year off the back of a 10-game winning streak. The Riders, who achieved a memorable treble last season, went through November and December unbeaten to open up a lead at the top of the BBL Championship. Facing a busy schedule in the final month of 2017, Paternostro’s side won all seven matches. Those victories included back-toback wins over their closest rivals, ■ by BRADLEY GAINS Newcastle Eagles and Glasgow Rocks. “It’s been a fantastic job from our guys,” said Paternostro. “Going through November and December undefeated is a tremendous effort. “It shows the ability to stay focused and win games in different ways. “Some we controlled from start to finish, but others we had to battle back and show character.” Leicester have a 12-1 league record and are also in the quarter-finals of the BBL Trophy with another league clash at Newcastle this month. “We’ve got to just keep doing what we’ve been doing – there’s a long way to go,” Paternostro added. “Our players are learning a lot and that’s important.” Surrey Scorchers opened 2018 with an 82-80 win over London Lions to end a run of four straight defeats. DAILY STAR, Wednesday, January 3, 2018 41 WORLD DARTS TROPHY: Taylor Perfect Match for Phil ■ by RICHARD LEWIS PHIL TAYLOR is having the World Matchplay trophy named after him as reward for the extraordinary impact he has had on darts. The Power, 57, beaten by Rob Cross 7-2 in Monday night’s World Championship final, has retired after almost three decades in the sport. Last summer he won the BetVictor World Matchplay for the 16th time – now his name will always be associated with the tournament in Blackpool. PDC chairman Barry Hearn said: “It was a great decision. We owe Phil Taylor a huge amount within the sport of darts. Respect “He had a special affinity with Blackpool, as it showed last year when he came back and won it, and we thought what better way than to change the name of that trophy to ‘The Phil Taylor Trophy’ so that we always remember what we owe Phil Taylor. “It’s a mark of respect and is thoroughly deserved. I will always have a special part in me that remembers his contribution to where we are now globally. “Everything about darts is going vertically upwards, it’s looking fantastic.” The 2018 World Matchplay will be staged between July 21-29 at the Winter Gardens. ACE ROB HAS A BALL Rugby injury put king Cross on road to glory NEW world champion Rob Cross has revealed how he swapped tries for bullseyes after damaging his tackle. Cross, 27, was taking in his success yesterday after an amazing 7-2 victory over Phil Taylor in the William Hill World Championship final as The Power headed into retirement. But it could have been so different as Cross sustained a rather delicate testicle injury playing rugby when he was 17. He said: “I was okay at it, I enjoyed it. I was No.8, back of the scrum but I took an unfortunate injury. “It was enough to put me off. Use your imagination. I walked like John Wayne for a month!” Sensational Rugby’s loss has become darts’ gain. Cross will now be a major name in the Premier League when he makes his debut next month and departing Taylor believes that the new champion can create a rivalry with world No.1 Michael van Gerwen. Cross added: “I believe I can dominate going forward. I still have loads to learn but winning this will help me greatly as I now know I can win and play well.” The former electrician has been sensational since joining the PDC Tour in February, his £400,000 cheque for becoming world champion on his tournament debut taking his prize money beyond £600,000. Such is his dedication that he even missed the birth of his third child in April. He was playing in Barnsley when He’s best ‘B team’ by Farr for Merc ■ RUGBY UNION ENGLAND playmaker Owen Farrell has been voted the game’s best player by Rugby World magazine. Farrell is joined in the top 10 by international colleague Maro Itoje with Courtney Lawes the next highest-placed member of Eddie Jones’ squad at 17th. New Zealand fly-half Beauden Barrett, the reigning world player of the year, came second and Fiji lock Leone Nakarawa third. ■ FORMULA ONE WORLD champion Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes team could copy Ferrari and run a second outfit. Sauber will be badged as Alfa-Romeo Sauber next season with sponsors Ferrari supplying power units, technical support and Academy driver Charles Leclerc. Mercedes have links with Aston Martin and team boss Toto Wolff said the move was “visionary”, adding: “It’s something we are considering.” ■ by RICHARD LEWIS daughter Maddison arrived. “I missed the birth through darts,” said Cross, who comes from Hastings. “The dedication side of it at that time, that early in the year, I had to play everything because I wanted to qualify for the World Matchplay. “The missus pushed me to do it. I said I would make the birth and she said, ‘No, you can’t, get to the Matchplay and try to kick on’. “I am very fortunate that my other half, Georgia, is with me and will push me to do that.” Cross, who also has a six-year-old son, Leyton, and a three-year-old daughter, revealed how his life has changed for the better thanks to darts. The new world champion, who used to wake up at 4.30am for work, said: “I am not very good at maths. “But to make £400,000, I would probably have to work roughly about 10 years, £40,000 a year with a bit of overtime. I would have to graft. “If I didn’t get up in the morning I never got paid. That is tough then but I have been fortunate because Georgia used to work. “My wife looked after children with disabilities. She is brilliant at it. I admire her because I could not do it. It would be heart-wrenching. “It takes a real sort of person to do that and not get attached because I would. “I get time at home now with the kids, three days, sometimes one day. It is what you do with your time when you get it and make the best of it.” Cool Konta fights back ■ TENNIS JOHANNA KONTA recovered after losing the first set to wild card Ajla Tomljanovic to reach the quarter-finals of the Brisbane International. Konta (left) was broken four times in the first set but recovered to beat the local hope 4-6 6-1 6-4. World No.9 Konta is running into form in time for the Australian Open. She said: “There wasn’t a lot in it so I’m glad I stayed tough to come through that.” Fellow Brit Kyle Edmund also came from a set down to beat Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov 6-7 7-6 6-4 to reach the last 16. ■ HE’S GOT THE POWER: World champion Rob Cross with trophy TEXT Village idiot: has your lap ❑ top had a malfunction coz in 2017 ebbsfleet won play-off to get into national league and I ain’t missed a game home/ away this season. so how was that a poor season for my great little club in Kent? there ain’t many of us but we are genuine fans that go to games. why don’t you go to a game in 2018? ebb army. ebb Paul Great text john, nearly every club at some point in there history has survived through handouts off rich fans or rich benefactors.

But the Spanish giants will have to offer in excess of £130m for the Reds to consider letting their star man leave Anfield. The Kop ace is a doubt for Friday’s FA Cup third round clash with Everton after sitting out their New Year’s Day win over Burnley with a thigh injury. But he may never wear the No. 10 shirt for the Reds again if he gets his way. Softened Liverpool’s summer stance that Coutinho was not for sale at any price appears to have significantly softened in recent weeks and that is why the player thinks he may get his move. The club, and manager Jurgen Klopp, have stopped short of saying he will definitely be at Anfield on February 1 when the window closes. That is in stark contrast to the approach in the summer when Fenway Sports Group, the club’s owners, made it clear he would not be sold at any price even after the player put in a transfer request. Coutinho’s advisors have been trying to convince the Reds’ hierarchy to sanction a move to Spain since the summer window. Although Liverpool have not named a price, it is understood it ■ WANTAWAY: Philippe Coutinho has had his hopes of Barca move increased would take an offer way in excess of the third £118m bid that was rejected in the summer, for any negotiations to start. That deal included £36m in the way of clauses, such as the Brazilian winning the Ballon d’Or, and Liverpool were not interested in the way that package was put together. Reports in Spain suggest Barca are ready to make a fourth bid of around £133m but as of last night no new offer had been received. Barcelona have not stopped some of their star players talking about Coutinho while their kit makers Nike blundered by advertising shirts bearing his name this week. Coutinho, although injured, fears if he plays again this month, it could scupper his dream move. He missed the start of the season with a back problem when Barcelona were in pursuit. The Brazilian, who Liverpool bought from Inter Milan for £8.3m in 2013, signed a five-year deal 12 months ago with no release clause. But he is increasingly confident he could finally be heading to the Nou Camp. Jesse makes the jump JESSE LINGARD is making the jump needed to be a top player for Manchester United. Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho hailed the England attacking midfielder after he scored his 10th goal of the season (left) in United’s 2-0 win over Everton on New Year’s Day. Lingard is ahead of Kevin De Bruyne and Chelsea ace Eden Hazard in the scoring charts this season as he continues to improve. “These boys – they either ■ by CHRIS McKENNA jump or they don’t jump,” Mourinho said. “It’s one thing to be a young talent, and another thing is to be a very good player. “Some players are not capable to do that jump. “They go from great potential young players to normal players. I think Jesse is making that jump. “He is being more consistent, he is adaptable, he understands better the game, he understands the different spaces and positions. I think he is going in a good direction.” Lingard is certainly on the right path and has bagged seven goals in his last nine appearances for United. Asked what his goals target is for the season, he replied: “It’s secret but I’m working towards it and I’ll keep working hard to help the team. “I’m pushing myself and trying to get as many goals as possible this season.” DAILY STAR, Wednesday, January 3, 2018 SERIOUSLY football INJURY: Jamie Vardy Vardy’s reunion in doubt ■ by RALPH ELLIS CLAUDE PUEL has warned Jamie Vardy he won’t risk his long-term fitness for some FA Cup romance. The striker is battling to make Saturday’s thirdround tie at Fleetwood, the club that launched his rags-to-riches tale. He missed Monday’s 3-0 win over Huddersfield after injuring his groin at Liverpool two days earlier and Puel said: “Jamie really wants to play in the cup because the game means so much to him. “It is not a serious injury and we hope that he will be ready to play. “But we cannot take any risks with him if he is not 100 per cent because we cannot allow him to be out for a longer time.” Portugal midfielder Adrien Silva is set to make his full debut after playing the final five minutes against Huddersfield. Silva had to wait four months for clearance because Leicester missed the August transfer deadline by 14 seconds. Winger Marc Albrighton said: “His technical ability is second to none. “It’s been tough for him having to wait so long but he’s a great character, he’s come into training smiling every day. “We made sure he was involved when we have had social events and he seems now that he can be settled both on and off the field.” Murray’s no worry ■ by IAN WINROW GLENN MURRAY insists he will welcome a new striker to Brighton even though it would threaten his starting spot. Albion boss Chris Hughton is keen to boost his side’s firepower in this month’s transfer window. Murray, 34, and Israel star Tomer Hemed have been the Seagulls’ only fit forwards this season. The team’s struggles in front of goal have underlined the need for another option and Murray is keen to see a new face come in. He said: “It is the nature of the beast, whatever club you are at. Look at Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Man Utd, when they bought Romelu Lukaku for a lot of money. “It is a revolving door but goals are the way forward and everyone is looking for a better centre-forward. “If clubs want to progress and win things, that’s just the nature of the game. “If someone comes in at the club and scores a lot of goals to keep us in the division, then great.” 43 PREMIER LEAGUE Refs stuck in the Dark Ages NEW ATTACK BY WENGER ■ by DAVID WOODS ARSENE WENGER is on a collision course with the FA after he stepped up his war with referee Mike Dean yesterday. The Frenchman first blasted Dean saying, “He saw what he wanted to see” when he awarded West Brom a late penalty for handball on Sunday. Wenger then continued his assault on the 49-yearold official, claiming his style of refereeing was like something from the “Dark Ages”. His amazing attacks came before he was charged by the FA for comments made to Dean and match officials in their room after the 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns. He has until Friday to respond. The FA confirmed last night that they will be reviewing the outbursts from Wenger which came as he gave his media briefings ahead of tonight’s visit by Chelsea. In a further twist, the referee at the Emirates is Anthony Taylor, who Wenger abused and shoved when he was fourth official at Burnley last January, earning a four-game touchline ban. MORATA TO SCORE FIRST 4/1 Assault The commission will take Wenger’s previous offences into account – as they were within a year of the new charge – when they meet, probably by the end of next week. This suggests the 68-year-old is likely to be hit with a lengthy ban. It is also understood the FA are ready to publish exact details of Wenger’s verbal assault on Dean. In his fresh attack on Dean, who ruled Calum Chambers had deliberately handled against West Brom, Wenger said of refs: “They have not to be the star. “We want them to respect the game and make the right decision and the ego should not interfere in that. “It’s not appropriate in 2018 that the guy calls a player, speaks half a minute, or a minute to him, to say, ‘Look, you have to behave properly’. “That is gone. That is not the rhythm of a modern society. “People want crisp, sharp action, and the referee has to make sure that happens. “They want to see, ‘Come on, let’s get on with it and play’. That’s our responsibility.” Jay Rodriguez converted the penalty on Sunday and continuing his blast Wenger said: “This one is a bit of a farce, seriously. “You do not give a penalty like that in the last minute of a game. When you see how Dean shows his arm it is nothing to do with what happened. So he sees what he wants to see.” Wenger confirmed Dean had told him to “keep quiet” when he confronted him after the final whistle. Of Taylor, who was fourth official when ref Jon Moss awarded Burnley a late-spot-kick, Wenger said: “I don’t want to make a story out of Anthony Taylor to put pressure on him. WORLD CUP “But what happened at the time, I FEARS: Luiz stood up and I’m experienced enough could leave Chelsea to look after myself.” ■ POINT MADE: Arsene Wenger confronts ref Mike Dean at the final whistle LUIZ FACES EXIT IF HE SULKS ■ ANTONIO CONTE has opened the door for David Luiz to quit Chelsea this month if he moans about a lack of action. The Brazil defender fears he may not get back into the first team when he returns from injury, putting his World Cup place at risk. And Conte admitted he does not want unhappy players at the club spoiling his side’s unity. The Chelsea boss said: “I was a player. I will understand if someone is worried for the World Cup. “I prefer to have players very happy to stay here because when you are unhappy you transfer this to the other players, to me and to my staff, and I don’t like this. I like to avoid this situation.” Luiz is back in training after a knee injury but will not be allowed to leave the club ■ by PAUL BROWN unless the Blues can sign a replacement. Prior to his recent injury lay-off, the defender was dropped for Chelsea’s clash with Manchester United amid reports he and Conte had a furious row in the build-up to the game. Feelings The 30-year-old will miss tonight’s clash with Arsenal but could return against Norwich in the FA Cup on Saturday. Michy Batshuayi is another player who could soon be making his feelings known to Conte. The Belgium striker has started just three league games since he joined from Marseille in a £33m deal in July 2016 and his World Cup hopes are also under threat. He is after a loan move but Conte said: “If you compare, Batshuayi plays much more this season than last season. “My task is to try to improve every single player. “When there is the right moment and the club ask me something about the transfer market, I give my opinion. “My expectation is for all the players in the squad to stay here and try to continue to work. “It is impossible to sell one player or send one on loan unless we take another player.” Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger yesterday denied any interest in signing Luiz, who has not been missed since Dane Andreas Christensen replaced him in the team, but Juventus are thought to be keeping tabs on his situation. West Ham have twice tried to sign Batshuayi and could come in for him again if Chelsea make him available. 44 DAILY STAR, Wednesday, January 3, 2018 INFORMATION STATION FOOTBALL Premier League Man City (2) ...............3 Watford (0) ............... 1 Sterling 1 Kabasele 13og Aguero 63 Gray 82 Att: 53,556 Southampton (1) .......1 Crystal Palace (0) .... 2 Long 17 Att: 28,411 McArthur 69 Milivojevic 80 Swansea (0) ...............0 Tottenham (1)........... 2 Att: 20,615 Llorente 12 Alli 89 West Ham (0) .............2 West Brom (1) .......... 1 Carroll 59, 90 McClean 30 Att: 56,888 Sky Bet Championship Fulham (0) .................4 Ipswich (1) ................ 1 R Sessegnon 69, 74 Kamara 72, 76 Garner 45 Sent off: Spence 54 Att: 17,415 Reading (0) ................0 Birmingham (1) ........ 2 Att: 14,491 Maghoma 24 Gallagher 64 Wolves (0)..................3 Brentford (0)............. 0 Neves 57 Douglas 59 Jota 80 Att: 28,475 P W D L F A Pts Wolves ............... 26 19 4 3 50 20 61 Derby ................. 26 14 7 5 41 23 49 Cardiff ................ 26 14 5 7 36 25 47 Bristol City ........ 26 13 8 5 40 31 47 Aston Villa ......... 26 12 8 6 38 24 44 Leeds ................. 26 13 4 9 37 28 43 Sheff Utd............ 26 13 3 10 40 31 42 Middlesbrough .. 26 12 5 9 35 26 41 Preston .............. 26 10 10 6 30 26 40 Fulham ............... 26 10 9 7 39 34 39 Brentford ........... 26 9 10 7 39 35 37 Ipswich .............. 26 11 3 12 39 39 36 Norwich ............. 26 9 7 10 26 31 34 Nottm Forest ..... 26 10 2 14 33 42 32 Millwall ............... 26 7 9 10 28 29 30 Sheff Wed .......... 26 7 9 10 30 34 30 QPR .................... 26 7 9 10 28 36 30 Reading ............. 26 7 7 12 30 35 28 Barnsley ............ 26 6 8 12 27 37 26 Bolton ................ 26 6 7 13 25 43 25 Hull ..................... 26 5 9 12 39 44 24 Burton ................ 26 6 6 14 20 43 24 Birmingham....... 26 6 5 15 15 35 23 Sunderland ........ 26 4 10 12 29 43 22 Ladbrokes Scottish Championship: Dundee Utd 4 Brechin 1, Dunfermline 2 Falkirk 0, Inverness CT 1 Livingston 1, Morton 1 St Mirren 1, Queen of South 0 Dumbarton 0.

Getting nearly £70m for Fernando Llorente and Gylfi Sigurdsson might have looked a good deal at the time but they have now both scored against the club they left. And the Welsh outfit are buried at the bottom of the table – having scored only 13 times themselves all season. Llorente had waited until last night for his full debut as Harry Kane has banged in goals left, right and centre, but he didn’t waste time when it finally came. With the England striker on the bench because he was still getting over a virus, Spaniard Llorente took just 12 minutes to get his first Premier League goal for Spurs. He was lucky as he was a yard offside as he moved to the near post to head home Christian Eriksen’s free-kick. But assistant Marc Perry’s flag stayed down, giving ref Robert Madley one more to add his own Christmas catalogue of blunders. And it proved critical on a wild, wet and windy night in South Wales, as Tottenham hung on to that lead and then wrapped up the result in the final minutes through Dele Alli. It was the worst possible start for Llorente returns to punish Swans by RALPH ELLIS SWANSEA TOTTENHAM 0 2 new Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal, blowing away the optimism from winning at Watford in his first game in charge. “I have just come to the Premier League and I will not start talking about the referees,” he said. “The linesman apologised at the end of the game to me and I understand it was a mistake. I make mistakes myself, so that’s okay.” Clever Carvalhal was less happy that Madley chose not to show Spurs’ Davinson Sanchez a second yellow card when he clattered into Martin Olsson, having already booked him for a foul on the same player. Mauricio Pochettino immediately subbed Sanchez and Carvalhal said: “He is a clever manager and I think we all know why.” The Spurs boss himself admitted: “I think we all worried about a second yellow card. We tried to avoid a problem.” Llorente didn’t celebrate his goal out of deference to his former club but must have been delighted to get it. “It has not been easy for Fernando so I think it was important for him to score,” said Pochettino. “It is important for a player to feel involved. He has shown a fantastic motivation to work and keep going.” Llorente said: “I am very happy. We knew it would be a difficult game because Swansea needed to win.” Spurs lived dangerously at times, and first Luciano Narsingh then Jordan Ayew should really have equalised in the second half. But in the end it was Kane who made the difference, holding off Federico Fernandez before picking out Alli. “They are two players who have a connection,” said Eriksen. “When one runs the other knows where to go.” ■ DELE DELIGHT: Alli celebrates making the points safe with the second goal SWANSEA (5-3-2): Fabianski; Rangel (Narsingh 53), Van der Hoorn, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson; Sanches, Clucas, Carroll (Routledge 78); Dyer (McBurnie 71), Ayew.

The big Geordie pounced deep in injury time when Marko Arnautovic swung in an inviting cross and Carroll was at the far post to fire home a fierce right foot shot. It was a bitter blow for Baggies boss Alan Pardew who looked set to take a point from his old club. Carroll had earlier levelled the scores with a powerful header after James McClean had put West Brom in front with his first league goal since September 2016 – against the Hammers. Both sides knew how big this game was and there were plenty of nerves in the air as the game got under way. Grabbed Only two teams had scored fewer goals away from home this season than the Baggies going into this one. But they almost drew first blood when Salomon Rondon turned Angelo Ogbonna and Winston Reid failed to close but his chip sailed over. West Ham had turned to Carroll for a spark up front and he helped set up Manuel Lanzini for a shot at the other end Ben Foster did well to stop. But the Hammers shot themselves in the foot in the 30th minute when the visitors grabbed a shock lead. Jonny Evans won the ball from Pedro Obiang deep in his own half and Cheikhou Kouyate could not catch McClean as he raced away. Reid then looked like he was treading water as he allowed McClean to cut inside and get his shot away but it was the wicked deflection off Obiang which left Adrian with no chance. That got the ** by PAUL BROWN WEST HAM WEST BROM 2 1 Baggies fans singing but Foster did well again to save another fine effort from Lanzini as the Hammers rallied. It could have been two just before the break though. McClean swung in a dangerous free kick and Evans had a free shot from the edge of the six-yard box but he scuffed it and watched Adrian easily gather. There were boos from the home fans at half time but their side should have equalised just after the break. Arnautovic fired the cross and Carroll slid in six yards from goal but just failed to keep his shot down. There were glimmers of hope for the Hammers but they looked a side struggling for confidence. That was until Carroll levelled on the hour-mark, getting above Evans and Kieran Gibbs to head home a peach of a cross from Aaron Cresswell. You could hardly have said it had been coming but it was a priceless first goal of the season for Carroll – and he didn’t have long to wait for his second and his winner will have put a WEST HAM (3-4-3): Adrian; Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell (Rice 77); Zabaleta, Kouyate, Obiang (Noble 46), Masuaku (Chicharito 72); Lanzini, Carroll, Arnautovic.

Record £15.8m signing Neves scored an unstoppable free-kick on 57 minutes to open the scoring and Scottish wing-back Douglas added their second two minutes later. And Jota rounded off the scoring after 80 minutes with a closerange finish after a goalmouth scramble. The runaway leaders are also set to boost their squad with the £1.5m signing of striker Rafa Mir from Valencia. They should have claimed the lead in the second minute when by STEVE MADELEY WOLVES BRENTFORD 3 0 winger Helder Costa charged down the right and crossed for Leo Bonatini, who hit the post. Nico Yennaris came to Brentford’s rescue on 12 minutes when his crucial headed clearance on the goal-line kept out Jota’s towering header from a Barry Douglas corner. The Bees should have led 11 minutes before half-time when Ollie Watkins delivered a free-kick from the right and Yoann Barbet’s header was deflected a couple of inches wide. But Wolves went close again before half-time as Jota collected a Douglas pull-back and saw his shot palmed away by a diving Daniel Bentley. But Wolves took charge of the game with two goals in three minutes before the hour-mark. On 57 minutes Jota was fouled by Ryan Woods on the edge of the box and Neves bent a brilliant free-kick into the top corner. Then after 59 minutes substitute Ivan Cavaleiro raced down the right flank and crossed for Douglas, who hammered home a shot from inside the area. And Jota’s late strike sealed all three points.

The Serbian missed a dramatic stoppage-time penalty in Palace’s 0-0 draw at home to Manchester City on Sunday. But he made amends with a stunning 25-yard curler 10 minutes from time as Roy Hodgson’s men came from behind to win at St Mary’s. The strike capped a fine turnaround for Palace, who had trailed to Shane Long’s first-half effort before James McArthur stabbed in an equaliser. But there was bad news for the Eagles last night with Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon both ruled out for the remainder of the season through injury. Serious Boss Hodgson said: “Dann and Puncheon are both cruciate ligament injuries. “They’ll see a specialist and likely undergo surgery once the swelling goes. “We won’t see them play again this season and they may not be ready for the start of next. They’re very serious injuries.” On the turnaround in fortunes for Milivojevic, Hodgson said: “Anyone can miss a penalty but it is about how you respond so we are all delighted for Luka. “I was pleased with the determination and quality of our play in the second half. “It is amazing how many blows on the chin you can take. “There was a point when we looked on the canvas but things are looking brighter now.” Palace appeared to be heading for just their second defeat in 11 games when Long ended an 11-month goal drought. The Irishman had not scored for club or country since February – a run stretching a massive 35 games. But he kept his cool to sweep in Jeremy Pied’s low cross from 12 yards in the 17th minute after by ALEX CROOK SOUTHAMPTON 1 CRYSTAL PALACE 2 Palace failed to deal with Ryan Bertrand’s initial centre. Saints dominated for an hour but the game changed in the 69th minute when Palace levelled through McArthur. Andros Townsend clipped the ball into the box and when Christian Benteke won the flick on the Scotland midfielder was on hand to rifle the ball home. The goal was met by a chorus of boos from the Saints faithful, who have seen their side win at home only three times since April. The mood become toxic 11 minutes later when Milivojevic bent a crisp right-foot shot into the top corner after being given too much space on the edge of the box. Saints are now only out of the relegation zone on goal difference after going nine matches without a victory. Manager Mauricio Pellegrino was given the dreaded vote of confidence by chairman Ralph Krueger earlier in the day. And the Argentine said: “We are in a difficult moment but we did everything to win the game in the first half. “Suddenly we changed and gave them the opportunity. “The manager is responsible for a big a part of this but I am a part of one context. “Hopefully in this market we can improve the squad. We have good players to bounce back.” SOUTHAMPTON (4-2-3-1): McCarthy; Pied, Stephens, Yoshida, Bertrand; Romeu, Hojbjerg (Gabbiadini 75); Ward-Prowse (Davis 79), Tadic (Redmond 70), Boufal; Long.

But Pep Guardiola reckons his side’s title assault will come at a price. He again claimed Premier League bosses do not care about the health of its stars and said the packed calendar could “kill players”. It took 41 seconds for Sterling to fire Guardiola’s men ahead with his 18th goal of the season – and the fastest of the Premier League campaign so far. Rampant ■ CALLING CARD: Sterling copies goal celebration of crocked Gabriel Jesus When Christian Kabasele diverted Kevin De Bruyne’s cross into his own goal, the contest was over within 15 minutes. Sergio Aguero added a third for good measure after the break, but it was never a contest because City were rampant from start to finish and should have won by many more. Andre Gray notched a consolation for the visitors eight minutes from time but it meant nothing. The difference in class was so vast that the hosts were showboating by JEREMY CROSS MAN CITY WATFORD 3 1 with almost 30 minutes remaining, passing in neat triangles between themselves as if on the training ground. It might have been arrogant, but City have a swagger about them. They remain unbeaten this season, have dropped just four points and are now 15 clear of nearest rivals Manchester United at the top of the table. Guardiola, who confirmed Gabriel Jesus could be out for up to six weeks with damaged knee ligaments, was delighted to take three more points. But he slammed Premier League bosses for such a hectic festive schedule. He said: “The tradition is the tradition, but just think about the players a little bit more please because the players are why we are all here. “We made five changes from the last game ** ** DAILY STAR, Wednesday, January 3, 2018 ACTION IN ASSOCIATION WITH ■ EARLY SCORES: Sterling beats Gomes in the first minute 47 Jor feels Mac fury by IVAN SPECK FULHAM IPSWICH 4 1 IPSWICH boss Mick McCarthy was fuming after seeing his side concede four goals in seven crazy second-half minutes at Craven Cottage. Teenager Ryan Sessegnon and Aboubakar Kamara scored two goals apiece as Fulham ran riot. McCarthy was already angry over the 54th-minute sending-off of full-back Jordan Spence with his side leading 1-0. Spence flattened Kamara after a foul on Freddie Sears had gone unpunished. McCarthy said: “Jordan said sorry in the dressing room but a moment of madness has cost us.” Joe Garner had put Ipswich in front with a 44th-minute header from a Martyn Waghorn free-kick. But they capitulated following Sessegnon’s equaliser after 68 minutes. Kamara slammed home a loose ball to put Fulham ahead. Then Fulham skipper Tom Cairney produced a delicious piece of skill to slip in 17-yearold Sessegnon for his second goal before Kamara poked home the fourth. Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic said: “Ryan is the most talented player in this country at his age. “It will be very strange if he doesn’t play for the England national team at some stage.” FAST SHOW but it’s not our fault. I know in England the show must go on, but that’s not normal guys. The big bosses should reflect that. “We’re going to kill the players. The federations don’t think about the players but they have to. “They play 11 months in a row. They have to protect them and play with quality and not quantity. We have to think about the artists. But I know it won’t happen.” While Guardiola’s men cruise towards the title, the Hornets are hurtling at full speed towards a relegation scrap. Smoke Marco Silva must be wishing he had got the Everton job, because his side have won one of their last nine league games and lost six of the last seven. The writing was on the wall before hundreds of fans had taken their seats inside the Etihad. It took less than a minute for Silva’s bestlaid plans to go up in smoke when the unmarked Sterling met Leroy Sane’s cross at the back post for a simple finish. Things went from bad to worse after 15 minutes when David Silva played in De Bruyne and there was little Kabasele could do but stick out a leg and steer the Belgian’s cross into his own net. How the score remained 2-0 until Aguero pounced after 62 minutes is a mystery. De Bruyne had made a miracle recovery to be passed fit and was a revelation once again, but City’s finishing failed to match his excellence. Aguero, Sane, Sterling and the returning John Stones all missed golden chances to rub the Hornets’ noses in it until Aguero made it 3-0 just after the hour. Gray converted Andre Carrillo’s cross to claw back a little respect for the visitors but Silva knows he needs to arrest the slide as soon as possible. He said: “We knew it would be difficult, but we have to find a way to stop this bad run of results.” MAN CITY (4-1-4-1): Ederson; Walker, Stones (Danilo 67), Otamendi, Delph; Fernandinho (Toure 70); Sterling, De Bruyne (B Silva 79), D Silva, Sane; Aguero.

Sterling seconds best ■ WAT A BLOW: Kabasele puts the ball into own net Jumping Jacques by IAN BAKER READING BIRMINGHAM 0 2 JACQUES MAGHOMA netted for the second game running as Birmingham finally won away from home this season. The livewire winger followed up his winner at Leeds with the opener at the Madejski before Sam Gallagher sealed the deal. It is the first time Birmingham have scored more than once in a game since August as they at last showed signs of fight. They are now just a point from safety after climbing off the bottom to 23rd. Reading were punished after Modou Barrow and Sone Aluko failed to take early chances. Maghoma blasted home his fourth of the season after Craig Gardner’s 24th-minute free-kick was not properly cleared. And the Royals were undone again on 64 minutes as Gallagher scored after being teed up by Jeremie Boga. Reading offered no response after that and a 12th loss of the campaign puts boss Jaap Stam under renewed pressure. When asked about his future, the Dutchman said: “I’m not getting into that. “We are in a difficult position. We are very close to the relegation zone. “Sometimes you get into a certain position and it is difficult to get out of.” 48 DAILY STAR, Wednesday, January 3, 2018 9770957 623430 DAILY STAR 3 JAN 2018.
