After freeing them, officials

Some of the women were forced
to claim benefits or use their university loans.
A spokesman from the Foreign
Office said: “Given these payments are from public funds, we
have an obligation to recover the
money.
“The [Government’s] forced

for safe houses and non-governmental organisations to ensure
victims of forced marriage can

issues warning

SAJID
Javid
has
pledged
to
reject
asylum appeals from
“fake” refugees crossing the Channel in
dinghies.
The Home Secretary said
the migrants were safe in
France, and they should
stay there.
Mr Javid was speaking yesterday during a visit to the
Port of Dover as Border Force
patrols were stepped up in the
English Channel.
Two new ships have been
added to the UK fleet which
guards the waterway after a
sudden surge in migrants from
northern France. Mr Javid,
who cut short his Christmas
holiday
after
calling the issue a major incident, said if
migrants
truly
feared for their
lives they should
have sought asylum in the first
country they arrived in.
He added: “A question
has to be asked, if you are a
genuine asylum seeker why
have you not sought asylum in
the first safe country that you
arrived in?”
The Home Secretary also
Home Secretary’s
blast at migrants
hinted that the Government
may veto asylum claims from
people who arrive in makeshift
boats to stop copycat sailings.
He said: “If you do somehow
make it to the UK, we will do
everything we can to make
sure that you are often not successful, because we need to
break that link, and to
break that link means
we can save more
lives.”
But his warning
was branded “illegal” by human
rights lawyers.
Colin Yeo, a leading immigration
barrister,
said:
“Sending
genuine
refugees to face persecution in order to dissuade others from seeking to
come here is plainly illegal.”
He added: “The latest asylum
statistics show that around
three-quarters of Iranian asylum claims succeed, so we are
talking here about genuine
refugees.” Mr Javid has also
come under fire in recent days
for calling those arriving at sea
ports “illegal” migrants – even
though it is not against the law
to seek asylum.
Earlier in the week he said:
“Our job here is to make sure
this doesn’t turn into a new
route for ever-increased
illegal migration.”
Paul Hook, from Refugee Action, said:
“These are people
first and foremost
and they deserve
a humanitarian
response.”
TWO people
have
been
arrested in Manchester over the
illegal movement of
migrants across the
English Channel into the United Kingdom.

PAROLE: Adam Johnson
Jailed

‘out in

THE sister of disgraced
former footballer Adam
Johnson has claimed he
will be freed from prison
in 2019.
Faye Johnson posted a
message on Twitter saying:
“I can finally say my
brother is home this year.”
She signed off her tweet
with a pair of grinning
face emojis.
Faye has stuck by her
brother and was behind
two bids to appeal
against his conviction for
sexual activity with a
15-year-old fan.
Johnson, 31, was found
guilty of the offence in
February 2016.
The former England
international admitted
grooming the girl but
denied there was any
further sexual activity.
Johnson was jailed for
six years in 2016 and
remains in prison.
He will be eligible for
automatic parole in the
spring after serving half
his sentence.
The former Sunderland
player hopes to return to
the game.
Teams in China, the Gulf
or Turkey are thought to
be the most likely to sign
him up.

“We had no idea what we were running
towards when we heard the screams on New

“When we saw the man wielding a knife
instinct took over and we were able to, in
company with travel safe officers from Metrolink, successfully detain the male.”
British Transport Police Chief Constable
Paul Crowther praised the bravery of Sgt
Valentine and three of his colleagues who
confronted the attacker with Tasers and
pepper spray.
Mr Crowther said Sgt Valentine was very
lucky. He added: “He’s got a nasty injury but
he could have been much, much worse.
“He very much feels that it was a team
effort and everybody was in this together.”
Sgt Valentine was on patrol at the station –
near the Manchester Arena which was targeted by a suicide bomber in 2017 – when a
knifeman attacked a couple in their 50s.
They suffered multiple stab wounds which
are serious but not life-threatening.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman
said: “The man has made some good progress
and is expected to be released in the next day
or so. His partner is also making progress
but is expected to be in hospital for longer.”
In a statement, the suspect’s family said:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with those
who were seriously injured, their families
and friends.
“We are also eternally grateful for the swift
response from the emergency services.”

GREEDY petrol giants have been

They have been fleecing hard-up
drivers by failing to pass on savings
at the pumps.
In the past three months the
wholesale price of petrol plummeted
by 17p.
Yet prices on the forecourts were
cut by only 9p.
Instead, oil companies pocketed
the rest while Brits struggled to fill
up their tanks.
Many motorists who need their

on the brink.
The Government must take action.
Campaigners want a pump price
watchdog to bring oil firms to heel.

Clunes
breaks
his cop
pledge
MARTIN Clunes has
broken the habit of a
lifetime by playing Milly
Dowler cop Colin Sutton in
the new ITV drama
Manhunt.
The Doc Martin star
revealed he cannot stand
telly detectives.
But he asked producer
Philippa Braithwaite for
the role of the detective
chief inspector in the hunt
for monster Levi Bellfield.
Martin, 57, said: “She
wanted me to play Colin
but didn’t ask me because
she knew my thoughts on
TV detectives – I had to ask
if I could play him.”
The actor, who found
fame in lads’ comedy Men
Behaving Badly, added: “I
had resisted the offers of
detective dramas because
they don’t float my boat.
“I don’t want to play an
officer who wears his best
clothes to work and drive
fast. This was so different.
“It’s not sensationalised
and I was interested in the
chance to play this man.”
Bellfield, 50, was
eventually trapped for the
murders of Milly, 13, and
two other young women in
south-west London.
¬ÊManhunt starts on
Sunday on ITV.

PETROL BOSSES ARE
TAKINGBidUS
FOR
FUELS
to set up forecourts watchdog
CAMPAIGNERS are urging
the Government to stop
big oil companies from
fleecing drivers.
Figures show that between October and December last year, forecourt fees were hugely inflated.

PC Richard Foulkes, 52, has
joined West Mercia Police
– the same force as his
great-great-grandfather
and uses his collar number.
PUMP ACTION: Campaigners want to see costs change
While the wholesale price of petrol
plummeted by 17p, pump prices were
only slashed by 9p.
And oil fat cats managed to rake in
huge profits from drivers of 15p per
litre of petrol and 17p for diesel while
global barrel prices tanked.
A survey of 71,000 road users has
revealed three-quarters of people
were convinced the major oil multinationals work together to inflate the
pump price.
In a bid to end the plunder, the AllParty Parliamentary Group for Fair
Fuel wants an independent group to
® by RUTH McKEE
monitor wild price hikes by the big
petrol companies.
Kirstene Hair, the MP for Angus and
leader of the group, said: “Drivers
need reassurance that they are not
paying way over the odds for fuel.
“In rural communities, where public transport is poor and unreliable,
people need their vehicles.
“It is essential that they pay the fairest price.”
The pressure group is furious that
prices have swung wildly up and down
over the past two years while the rate
per barrel has stayed stable.
Robert Halfon, the vice-chairman of
the APPG and MP for Harlow, Essex,
believes a “PumpWatch” monitor
could protect drivers.
He said: “PumpWatch is the only
way to ensure that motorists are not
taken for a ride by greedy oil companies. It will bring the rocketing fuel
prices back to Earth.”
“Drivers need a fair deal.”
A petition calling for the Government to set up a watchdog has attracted more than 14,000 signatures.
Once it reaches the 100,000 mark, the
Government will be forced to debate
the issue in Parliament.
Howard Cox, who set up the online
appeal, said: “When oil prices change,
UK drivers have absolutely no idea
what they will pay at the pumps.
“It is never ever the same. There is
no consistency, logic or clarity to the
way prices are calculated.
“If gas, electricity, water and telecoms get pricing bodies, why not
motorists too?
“We need PumpWatch.”

including 96 layers of puff

Corinna said the Official

She added: “The app is another

DIETS SLAMMED BY EXPERTS
CARBS AREN’T THE
SLIMMERS’ ENEMY

LOW-carb new year diets
pushed by stars such as
Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim

The super-lean stars are supporters of meals which cut out
potatoes, pasta, rice and bread.
But scientists from the World Health
Organisation say carbohydrates are a
vital part of a healthy diet if you are
trying to slim.
And a survey by Slimming World
revealed that those following the lowcarb fad often feel hungry and bored.
Cutting
Two-thirds of the 2,000 slimmers
who were polled said they had heard
that low-carb diets are better for
weight loss.
And a third said they had heard
that it was impossible to lose weight
without cutting carbohydrates.
The confusion is fuelling the nation’s obesity problem.

“Yet the truth is, carbohydrates
play an important role both in a
healthy diet and in sustainable
weight loss – and the current carb
confusion is fuelling the UK’s obesity
problem.
“A diet to aid weight loss needs to be
healthy and balanced.
“It should give people the freedom
and flexibility to enjoy a healthy

and fat, and importantly it
needs to be sustainable for
the long term.

‘snub’ Corrie bosses sneak
THE mother of a diver who
helped rescue a football
team stuck in a flooded
cave has hit out after he
was snubbed in the New
Year’s Honours.
Tim Acton, 39, helped
save 12 players and their
coach trapped
underground in Thailand
for 17 days.
The expert diver, who is
originally from Wrabness,
Essex, carried oxygen
tanks and stretchers into
the caves as the youngsters
were brought out.
The operation was one of
the most complicated ever
undertaken, with many of
the children unable to
swim.
But while other Brits
involved in the rescue
received MBEs, the
George Medal for bravery
and the Queen’s Gallantry
Medal, Tim missed out
on honours.
His mother Lynne said
she was shocked.
She added: “I think it is
awful.
“I know he didn’t do it
for recognition or reward
but when you see everyone
else get honoured it just
feels wrong.
“We were so proud Tim
became involved.”

The dramatic ending comes as part
of a renewed drive by soap bosses to
provide audiences with genuine
surprises.
Many viewers have become increasingly clever over the years at spotting
spoilers.
But weary Cobbles’ bosses fed-up
with their major storylines leaking
out have started to film more endings
and plots behind closed doors.
New executive producer Iain

A Corrie insider said: “For years

Elvis Aron Presley was a twin. His brother
Jesse Garon died at birth at 4am, 35
minutes before Elvis was born. Elvis wanted to
change the spelling of his middle name to
Aaron from 1966.
John Lennon and Paul McCartney both
credited Elvis with inspiring them.
Lennon said: “Nothing really affected me
until Elvis,” while McCartney thought: “It
was Elvis who really got me hooked on beat
music. When I heard Heartbreak Hotel, I
thought: ‘This is it’.”
Not everyone was as impressed. “He
never contributed a damn thing to
music,” fumed crooner Bing
Crosby. Evangelist Billy
Graham said: “I wouldn’t
let my daughter walk
across the street to see
Elvis Presley perform.”
Elvis’s hair was
blondish-brown
– but he dyed it black,
pictured, every four weeks.
On May 28, 1952, Elvis was sacked from
his job as a cinema usher for punching a
colleague who had told the manager, Arthur
Groom, that Elvis was getting free sweets from
the girl on the popcorn stand. Elvis had been
paid $12.75 for a 5-10pm week night shift.
Just after 9.30pm on July 7, 1954, DJ
Dewey Phillips of WHBQ in Memphis
played the first Elvis song on the radio,
That’s All Right (Mama).
Elvis’s first flight was to New York to
audition for Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts

The Yorkshire Regiment serviceman suffered a damaged
lung, facial fractures and possible nerve damage to one leg.
Police said there was “no
evidence” he was targeted because of his military service or
due to a racist motive.
Detectives said a bust-up with
a group of men inside the TBC
nightclub in Batley, West Yorks,
spilled out on to the pavement.
The soldier was then knocked
down by a blue Mercedes at
around 4.40am. The car was
driven off but was later found.
A 27-year-old man, from Dewsbury, was arrested on suspicion
of wounding with intent.
Last night, Joshua’s sister
Emma Adams said he was in a
“bad” state and was “dosed up

On April 23, 1956, Elvis opened in Las

poor reception from the audience. He didn’t

‘Judges in

STRANGLER: Norris faces exclusion zone
EXCLUSIVE
® by ALEXANDER BROWN
BRITAIN’S justice system
is close to meltdown, say
law experts.
Resources
This lack of funding has seen historic court buildings sold off on the
cheap or allowed to fall apart.
Since 2010, 126 court premises have
been sold. As they close, defendants,
lawyers and staff are forced to travel
further to deal with packed court lists.
Theresa Hendrickx, committee
member for the LCCSA, said: “It
means people are travelling long distances, taking time off work or not being in school and often getting the bus
as they can’t afford the Tube.”
She added: “There’s just a lack of
funding, a lack of people and a lack of
resources.”
The cuts have also seen courts falling apart across the country, with no
attempt to keep them fit for use.
Speaking with lawyers across Britain, we heard stories of cells closed
because of floods, disabled court staff
struggling to get in due to lifts not
working and no wi-fi for lawyers.
Ms Hendrikx added: “People say
it’s like doing justice in Syria, it’s
Third World justice, that’s what it
seems like.”
The cuts have also hit legal aid, the
Picture: GETTY
Funding for the Justice Department has plunged 40% in the past
20 years, and it is now facing a
further £600million cut.
Politicians are happy to look the
other way as prisons and courts crumble, claim legal professionals.
A Daily Star investigation found a
system deemed no longer fit for purpose, described by lawyers as “third
world justice”.
Criminal barristers have staged
mass walkouts and refused to take
cases, and vigils have been held outside the Ministry of Justice.
But months on from the protests
there is still no fix in sight.
London Criminal Courts Solicitors’
Association officer Mark Troman said
things were only going to get worse.
He added: “The Home Office budget
and Justice budget are both down, but
if they increase the Home Office
budget before they increase the Justice budget, it’s going to be the perfect
storm.
“The system will be unable to cope,
and it will be a disaster.”
4-town

a killer
CRIMINAL: Our justice system is struggling due to lack of funding
funding given to defendants who
cannot afford to hire help. In the past
five years, the England and Wales
legal aid budget has been cut by more
than £1billion.
Chris Henley QC, chair of the Criminal Bar Association, claimed it had
left the system in “chaos”.
He said people were “having to try
to represent themselves – and nobody can do an adequate job of
representing themselves in any court
or tribunal”. He added: “The whole
thing falls into disrepute – again
nothing seems to be done to tackle
this crisis.
“Judges are in despair about what is
going on in front of them.” The lack
of funding has also seen a crisis erupt
in Britain’s prisons, which are now
overcrowded, with six more than 50%
over capacity.
Jail deaths have surged, with selfharm incidents and assaults on staff
also rocketing.
Liberal Democrat Home Affairs
spokesman Sir Ed Davey accused the
Government of overseeing a “crisis in
our prisons”.
He said: “Overwhelmed staff are
simply unable to cope, leading to riots,
widespread drug use and violence
against staff.”

English Wines Info tweeted a
map showing hot spots where
the finest grapes could be
grown.
It reveals the chalk outcrop
stretches from the French city
of Reims – at the heart of the
Champagne region – through
Lincolnshire to Yorkshire.
However, any British tipples
would have to be called “sparkling wine” as only vineyards
in the Champagne region can
use the moniker.
But TV wine expert Joe Fattorini said: “Ey up, not too long
before we have the Côtes de
Scarborough Sparkling and
Côtes de Filey Fizz.”
Hambledon Vineyard, which
produces sparkling wine in
Waterlooville, Hants, suggested

NV – as a born and bred Yorkshireman I can’t wait.
“White Rose Fizz – better contact the IPO toute suite.”
The Wine Society’s website
says that the UK’s chalky soil is
“more commonly associated
with high quality wine”.
It adds: “It’s valued in viticulture because it is well drained
but the pores in the subsoil
rocks also have high water
storage capacity, and because
its porous, roots can easily penetrate down to this subsoil.”

No yoke...£10k egg hunt’s begun
CHOCOLATE giant Cadbury
has kicked off Easter 16
weeks early!
The firm has hidden 800 white
Creme Eggs in stores, with some
worth up to £10,000.
More white eggs will appear in
adverts for other companies. Anyone
who spots them will be entered into a
draw to bag another 10 grand.

Creme Eggs hidden in stores and
supermarkets will be worth money.
As well as the top prize, others will
earn finders £50, £100 or £1,000.
But only a few dozen eggs will be
available each week.
Customers who spot a white egg in
an advert should take a picture and
send it in to be entered into a draw to
win another £10,000. Spotters will also
get one of more than 30,000 vouchers
for a free Creme Egg.
White eggs will be hidden at Asda,
Morrisons, Tesco, Co-op, Sainsbury’s,
M&S, One Stop and some independent
retailers later this month.
Cadbury advises anyone who finds
one to keep the wrapper so the prize
can be claimed.
The promotion runs until April 21.

NEW Doctor Jodie Whittaker has exterminated
millions of viewers.
The much-hyped New Year’s Day
episode was a ratings flop.
Show bosses were hoping the return
of the Daleks would prove a hit.
But just 5.1million viewers tuned in
– the lowest festive special ever.
It was beaten by Emmerdale in
its time slot and also pulled in fewer
viewers than Coronation Street
and Luther.
The top-rated festive episode was
watched by 12m in 2007 when Kylie
Minogue made a guest appearance.
A series insider said: “Producers
were hoping the episode would be a

ratings hit. This isn’t the figure they
were expecting.”
BBC bosses were hit by criticism
when they announced there would
be no Christmas Day special in 2018,
as in previous years, but one a week
later on January 1 instead.
The move seems to have cost them
millions of fans. When the last series
launched it was hailed a success. The
first episode peaked at 9m viewers as
Jodie made her debut. The decision to
turn the Time Lord into a woman has
divided fans of the long-running
series. But Jodie has insisted it
shouldn’t put viewers off.
She said: “I suppose playing The
Doctor, because it’s an alien and
because The Doctor has two
hearts, it means you don’t need
any qualifications.
“I think we knew that, but it’s
wonderful to be the first person
in a position to really say: ‘See?
We can do it!’.”
The show returns next year.

BACK TO WORK AND FEELING SLUGGISH? HERE’S

“EVERYONE is angry
about this aren’t they?”
Dr Andy laughs.
“Even those who
wanted it. How do you
make this a good,
happy thing? I don’t
have the answer to this,
if I did I’d be in No10
wouldn’t I?
“But don’t let external
influences get in the
way of your happiness.
It’s not Brexit making
us unhappy, it’s how we
are thinking about how
it will affect us.
“Inside-out thinking
means we think the
world is making us feel
rubbish. The trick with
Brexit is to change your
thinking.
“Our vote is done
now. Let’s make the
best of it and unite a bit
so we can make the
best of what’s coming.
Our passion shouldn’t
spill over into anger.
Have acceptance now.
“Either it will happen
or it won’t. We need to
put faith in those who
are in charge now.
“I would rather spend
my time getting
passionate about
things I can control
and change.”

SEX
“IT’S quality not quantity here. You don’t need to
have more sex to be happier,” Andy says. “Just with
the right person.
“Sex and relationships are linked to happiness.
The key to long-term happiness is all about
relationships and people. Loving sex within a
relationship will always be the best kind. Finding
someone who loves you and being loved is the key
to happiness. And sex is a big part of that.”
EXCLUSIVE
■ by JENNIFER DUNKERLEY
MEET the UK’s first
Doctor of Happiness,
who claims he can
help you beat the
January blues.
The nation is heading
back to work feeling sluggish, bloated and skint from
Christmas.
But Dr Andy Cope reckons he
can change all that. And he’s here
to let lucky Daily Star readers into
his secret: “Life is too short – make a
change now.”
So whether it’s money worries, health,
relationships, politics or more keeping
you awake at night – Andy can help.
As the first person to ever study what
makes humans blissfully happy, Andy,
51, from Derbyshire, spent 12 years at
university developing his theory. And
with a PhD under his belt is now the
UK’s official first Dr Happiness.
He explains: “I was studying Psychology at Loughborough University but
there was always something missing
for me.
“I studied the usual disorders and
ailments, but I realised, why are we
constantly studying what’s wrong with
people to try to fix them?
“Why don’t we ever study people who
already feel genuinely amazing and
positive and work out how to bottle that
instead?
“So I decided to flip psychology on its
head and rather than try to look at ill
people to cure them, I realised no-one
had ever studied happy people to find
out why they aren’t?”
But it wasn’t as easy as he first
thought. “Qualifying who is truly happy
was the hard bit,” he reveals. “Everyone has a natural high point and a natural low point, so I was plotting people
on a graph who’d been consistently
happy on a long-term basis.
“There’s only about 2% of the population who are already genuinely happy,
have amazing energy and who you feel
great when you’re around them.
“I spent two years getting the wrong
people. I had a questionnaire where
people had to grade themselves so I
went after those who’d scored eight or
above. But then I found them completely deluded. They weren’t creating
happiness in other people.
“So they needed to be eight or above
as well as making other people happy
and rate yourself happy on the Oxford
Questionnaire, which is a tried-andtested scale.
“Flourishing is when your happiness
creates upward scales of positive emotion in other people and that is the most
important bit to qualify it.” Brits are
some of the biggest miserable
moaners in the world, Andy says.
We even enjoy it! “Moaning is a
national habit,” he says. “But it’s
a learned behaviour because
everyone else is having a bit of
a moan. But then it rubs off on
other people and can cause you
to be depressed.
“Brits, on average, spend
most of our time in the bottom
third of the happiness scale.
“In fact, the international
tables of happiness are hardly
ever shown here in the UK
because we are so low down.
There are a lot of other countries
who are poorer and have worse
weather than us which are happier.
“The top 2% in my research do have a
moan occasionally but not in a way that
negatively impacts on others.
“And they have internal strategies to
rethink how they feel about bad traffic,
awful weather – anything.
“Happiness can only come from your
own thinking. We’re fooled into thinking it comes from new shoes, holidays
or other people. It doesn’t.
“All the time we are looking at advertisements chasing happiness in things
like a pot of emotional goal at the end
of a never-ending rainbow.
“My theory is that happiness is
already here. You just need to spot it.
“It’s all in your head and how you
choose to look at things.
“Here in Britain we’re overworked,
underpaid, angry about Brexit, unhappy about the weather and jealous of
everyone who we think is living a better
life than us.
“But we don’t do anything about it.
“Put simply, we work to pay the bills,
to buy stuff we don’t need and to
impress people we don’t like.
“STOP! Now is the time to change.”

COPING
WELL:
Dr Andy Cope,
who is a doctor
in happiness
MONDAY MORNINGS
“GRATITUDE,” Dr Andy says, is the
secret. “You need to wake up in the
morning and feel really grateful that
you don’t have toothache. When you
do that you have a bit more energy.
“There’s something called
Destination Addiction – on Monday
morning most people just want to get
through the week, to survive until
Friday, or until Christmas, or until
retirement. All the time, we’re kicking
happiness into the long grass. We
need to learn to be happy right now
and not in eight weeks’ time. The
average lifespan is 4,000 weeks. If
you announce that to adults they
can’t believe it’s nearly over. You
need to squeeze the best out of life
that you can and be equally happy
on a Monday as you are on a
Friday afternoon.
“Most people hit the snooze button.
Don’t! Be grateful that you CAN get
out of bed everyday and get out of
bed like you really mean it. Did you
rise and shine or did you rise and
whine? Don’t grumble. Make your
first half-hour of the day as brilliant
as it can be – be happy you don’t
have toothache and that you can
jump out of bed.
“When the kids come down for
breakfast, have the radio on, sing
and send them off to school all
happy too. Make your happiness for
mornings infectious.
“If you woke up every Monday
morning like you did every Friday
morning, wouldn’t it feel better?”

S A MAN TO TURN THOSE FROWNS UPSIDE DOWN
Everyone has an influence on those
around them. They are creating a tsunami
not a ripple effect.
“When I speak to kids in schools I tell
them to only compare themselves to
themselves. Am I better than I was
yesterday?
“Do it better than you have to. All those
‘little bit betters’ add up to superhero
status. Smile more. Be a little bit nicer
than you have to. Work a little bit harder
than you have to.
“Do something good with your life,
because trying to be Kim Kardashian is
never going to happen. Instead it’s about
being the very best version of you.”
FRIENDSHIP
DR Andy recommends the seven-second hug. He
explains: “The average hug is 2.1 seconds. But for the
love to transfer between two people it needs to last
seven seconds. Not strangers, but there will be 12
people in your life – a maximum of 15 – who really mean
something to you and you’re emotionally close enough
to that they should get a seven-second hug.
“You don’t need to say anything, they will know.
Those 12 people are the centre of your universe.
They are all you need.
“So the friends you have on social media, cut them
down by 40% and I promise you will be happier.”
MONEY
FROM unemployment to
inflation – everyone would like
more cash, right?
Dr Andy says: “If you won
the Lottery, you’d be happy
for six months only. Trust
me. Then it depends how
happy you were before.
“You return to your set
point and your baseline.
You graduate down to being
miserable and rich.
“If your happiness is linked
to shopping then you are
happy when you are shopping
and not on a Monday morning
when you jump out of bed.
“But if you buy a new pair of
shoes, you will be happy for around
four hours max. Then you go back
to being miserable again. There’s
less of a link between income and
happiness than you’d imagine.
“There’s a certain household
income around £45k a year
where it doesn’t matter if you’re
earning that or a million pounds
a year.
“In fact, if you want to be
happier you are better off earning
less. We’re living life fast, but are
we living it well? That’s the
question.
“My advice? Spend your
money on experiences rather
than products. You get more
value out of your happiness
pound. Spend your money on
things that force you to spend
time with people and experience
things together.
“Holidays, days out, and little
things are better than buying
a bigger telly or new shoes.”

CELEBRITY
“IF you go back a few hundred years we
all lived in small communities and knew
the people in our area. You only
compared yourself to them. But now
there’s seven billion on the planet to
compare to. They seem like they have
everything, but really they don’t.
“George Michael, was he happy? Robin
Williams? These people are going
through complicated lives too. We’re all
flesh and blood at the end of the day.
“Kim Kardashian has young girls who
follow her but they need to stop trying to
achieve the unachievable.
“Celebrities have so much influence but
they should wield that in a positive way.
“WE’RE more connected to
people than ever but we’re
more disconnected than
ever,” Dr Andy says.
Now is the time to cut
back on Facebook and
uninstall your Instagram.
“Loneliness has gone
through the roof. Social
media is not a meaningful
relationship.
“It’s not real life. Yet we’re
using it more and more as
our measure of happiness.
“It’s all about seeing the
best of the best.
“It’s an airbrushed version
of life which is totally
unachievable.
“One flesh-and-blood
friend that you can actually
meet and go to the pub with
and have a chat to is
probably worth about a
thousand Facebook friends
who you never actually see.
You can’t ignore social
media but my advice is cut
your usage down by 40%
and you will be happier.
“Plough that time into
achieving your real
ambitions.
“On holiday people only
post their top moments.
“They don’t show what
really happened or where
they looked bad or
sunburned!
“Then everyone at home
looks at your posts and
feels bad because their
lives back home don’t look
as good.
“Social media is fuelling
loneliness and loneliness is
the new smoking.
“I believe it’s just as bad
in terms of your mental
health too.”
“SUNLIGHT does make
you happy so it is easier
to be happier in the
summer and there is an
issue of lack of sunlight
in the winter.
“But Scandi countries
are happier than us and
they have less sunlight.
“Lagom is the Swedish
way of contentment
which is about being
happy with what you
have. It’s an appreciation
that you don’t have to
have everything in life.
Appreciate what you
have. Have a Lagom
amount of food on your
plate. Not living to
excess. Just having
enough. The relentless
pursuit of MORE will
make you unhappy. It’s
about knowing when you
have enough.”
One thing you can do?
Buy new underwear.
Andy says: “This
January, upgrade your
knickers – don’t reserve
your special pants for
special times. Clear out
your skanky bad
knickers. Get rid. Wear
your special pants every
day instead.”
NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
“DON’T set yourself
unrealistic challenges,
is my advice. But set a
big goal.”
Dr Andy believes in HUGS.
“Huge Unbelievably Great
Goals is what we say. Make it
a new year’s revolution, not a
resolution. A resolution you
will have broken in a week.
“But with a revolution you
can do something that
excites you and makes you
the best version of yourself
to achieve it. Write a book,
run a marathon, do
something big. My 2% set
Everest goals. Don’t mess
about with small changes
because you will break them.
“Not many people climb
Everest because it’s difficult,
it’s challenging and it’s
exciting. Too many people
set goals too low. I say – go
large in 2019.”

Medical conditions, smoking and even just being unfit are common
causes of long-term breathlessness. The result: that unpleasant
feeling when you just can’t catch your breath, even when doing
every day tasks and hobbies.
REVITIVE Aerosure is a drug-free respiratory device that uses
scientifically-proven breathing therapies to stimulate the airways
and breathing muscles.
Vibrations created by the device
travel down through the airways to
stimulate the lungs.

by respiratory physiotherapists to help people suffering certain
symptoms caused by COPD (an umbrella term for a collection
of conditions causing lung damage) including chronic
bronchitis and emphysema that block airflow into and out of
the lungs, making it hard to breathe. REVITIVE Aerosure is a

CAPCOM’S seminal
horror masterpiece,
released more than 20
years ago on the
original PlayStation, is
making a welcome
return this month.
But – unlike recent
remasters of games
such as Spyro, Shadow
Of The Colossus or
Crash Bandicoot –
you’d be mistaken to
call this new version
of Resident Evil 2
anything other than
a new game.
And having had an
early preview, StarTech
can confirm what an
ONE of the world’s biggest
technology shows gets
under way this weekend
with CES opening its doors
in Las Vegas.
Some of the greatest
names in tech will be

A luxury ride that’s electrifying
IF you still think electric
cars are as exciting as the

Going battery powered is the
future of motoring and if you want
proof then feast your eyes on Jaguar’s remarkable I-PACE.
This fully electric SUV won a
swathe of awards in 2018 and having
taken delivery of one over the festive
period, StarTech is not surprised.
This futuristic motor not only looks
like it’s come straight from the set of
the next Batman movie, but it packs
more technology than the Starship

drift off the motorway.
There’s even a camera tucked inside the front grille that can jam on
the brakes if it senses an impending
collision and a driver condition monitor keeps watch, giving a warning
when it thinks you need a break.
Even when you arrive, you can keep
fully in touch with the I-PACE via a
dedicated app which displays the status of your vehicle on your phone.
Having driven more than 200 miles
in the I-PACE we’re seriously impressed. You’ll be mesmerised by the
sheer power, with the car racing from
0-60 in just 4.5 seconds.
It’s all pretty incredible but there is
still one big niggle.
Driving around a city is simple as
you’ll find endless places to
charge the battery but head
deep into the Somerset

Charging via a household

BACK IN TIME FOR SCHOOL:
8pm, BBC2
THESE living history series
keep on coming, don’t they?
Off the top of my head, we’ve had
Back In Time For Dinner, Back
In Time For Christmas, Back In
Time For Tea, Back In Time For
A Slap Round The Chops With A
Wet Haddock (disappointingly,
that one never made it past the
pilot stage) and Back In Time For
goodness knows what else.
And now? Now we’ve got BACK
IN TIME FOR SCHOOL (8pm,
BBC2), hosted by Sara Cox, where
each week a bunch of 14 and
15-year-olds will be experiencing
what schoolroom life was like
for previous generations. It kicks
off in 1895, an era when the bulk
of classes were segregated (the
lads learned Latin and how to use
rifles, the girls learned needlework
and how to make beds) and when
geography lessons appeared to
focus quite largely on the dubious
nature of Johnny Foreigner.
ELSEWHERE, there’s yet
another of those shows
aimed at those of us anxious to
shed the festive blubber. FOOD
UNWRAPPED DIET SPECIAL
(8pm, Channel 4) includes a
look at whether we should give
up meat and carbs in favour of
fruit and veg-based options and
whether a month off the booze
■
is the secret to regaining your
youthful complexion.
Also tonight, in episode
two of MORECAMBE AND
WISE IN AMERICA (8pm, Gold),
we hear how comedy legends
Eric and Ernie headed back to
New York in 1964 to make their
second appearance on the
legendary Ed Sullivan Show.
Another British act on the show
that same night consisted of
four lads from Liverpool, wearing
smart dark suits and strumming
guitars. God knows what
happened to them.

CLARK Griswold’s grown-up son Rusty (a
very funny Ed Helms) takes his family on the
same road trip to Walley World he sort of
enjoyed in 1983’s National Lampoon’s
Vacation. Some of the gags miss their targets,
but when they do hit, they slam right into the
funny bone.
CARRIE *** (2013) 5STAR, 10pm Brian

JUST JANE
Boss in bed but
awful manager
JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES
YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY
... AND EVERY DAY
Sick of
being
bullied
Bloke’s
one big
skinflint
I’M nearly 60 and I’m
still being bullied by
my opinionated,
over-bearing mother.
She’s 88 and as fit
as a fiddle. Her new
boyfriend is 50 and
she’s always telling me
I’m the worst daughter
ever born.
She instructs me
what to wear, what to
eat and what to think.
I dread picking up the
phone to her because
she never gives me a
break.
Everything I do, plus
everything I’ve ever
done, is wrong. I can’t
voice an opinion or
make a plan without
being shot down.
My dad died 15 years
ago and still referred
to her as “that
nightmare” until
the very end.
I’ve tried reasoning
with her. I’ve tried
being friendly and
being stand-offish –
and nothing works.
She still treats
me like the biggest
disappointment of her
life. How do I get her
to change?
MY boyfriend is cheap and
mean.
I no longer find his
unwillingness to open his
wallet endearing and I’m
really struggling to respect
him right now.
This Christmas we agreed
not to do presents, which
was fine by me, given the
rubbish he’s insulted me
with in the past.
But now he’s just
announced that he won’t be
getting me anything for my
birthday in March either
because, apparently, there’s
nothing I need. Charming.
His mum is in hospital. We
went to buy her flowers and
just watching him trying to
haggle the price down by
50p was, quite frankly,
excruciating.
We met his disabled aunt
on the ward who asked for
a lift home.
My bloke actually turned
her down because he didn’t
want to drive two miles out
of his way. I thought: “What
on Earth am I doing with
this moron?” Perhaps you
could answer that for me.
Picture posed by models
JANE SAYS: I very much
doubt your mother is
going to change her tune
at the age of 88.
If all she’s ever done is
bully you and push you
around, then that, sadly,
is the nature of your
relationship.
You say you’ve tried all
sorts of approaches and
nothing works – now you
need to think about your
own wellbeing.
What kind of contact,
if any, would make you
happy and finally allow
you to spread your wings
and be yourself?
Maybe you and she are
not destined to spend
much time together in
future?
Don’t feel guilty about
protecting your sanity. If
she can’t appreciate you
for who you are, she will
end up the loser.
MY SEXY
LOVER IS
A USER
I’VE got a nasty feeling
that my married boss is
using me for sex.
We meet up in secret a couple
of nights a week.
She books into a local hotel on
Wednesdays and Thursdays to
avoid her long commute home.
I’m invited to join her in a plush
suite. She orders up room service,
we drink wine and make love like
a pair of demons.
We love bondage, sex toys and
erotic fiction.
Physically we’re very well
matched and love to surprise and
shock each other with different
positions, role-playing games and
jokey punishments.
We do role reversal stuff where
I’m the stern boss and she’s the
subservient lover. It’s a laugh.
Paranoid
In private she’s wonderful; she’s
really sexy, funny and warm. But
back in the office, she treats me
like rubbish.
I think she’s so paranoid about
other people (and especially her
possessive husband) finding out
about us she overcompensates.
She openly criticises my work
and bawls me out in front of other
co-workers. She tells me that I’m
underprepared and stupid in
meetings and it hurts.
One afternoon in the boardroom
she simply wouldn’t get off my
case about a messed-up order that
wasn’t even my fault. She went on
and on, banging the table and
throwing stuff around. In the end
I nearly broke down and cried.
A senior colleague, who has
been with the firm for 20 years,
was furious. He insisted she calm
MIXED MESSAGES: Boss treats him to bedroom tricks but acts like a bully in the boardroom
down or he’d call HR. The whole
thing was mortifying.
Later, she vaguely hissed an
apology at me in the corridor, but
it didn’t sound very sincere.
I know she’s trying to show that
she doesn’t have favourites, but
I’m not made of stone.
Now I’ve just had a text from
her telling me that she’s looking
forward to resuming our old
routine.
In other words, the hotel suite –
and I don’t know how I feel about
that any more.
If I turn her down then will she
look for an excuse to sack me?
JANE SAYS: You have to start this
new year as you mean to go on.
If you no longer wish to have
sordid sex with your married user
of a boss, put your foot down now.
Tell her “no thanks” and don’t
feel guilty or embarrassed about
it. You’re only human and you can
only take so much.
Surely you’ve got to see that this
is crunch time. That incident in the
boardroom was an appalling
display and total abuse of power.
She loves her midweek hotel
specials, but you’re never going to
be a committed couple. I understand that you are frightened

Turn your woman on
about the future, but enough is

Work out what you want from life
and start looking for a new job on

executive needs to be told about
the bullying you have endured.
Ensure you learn from this mess.
Go into your next relationship
with eyes wide open and avoid
married individuals and anyone
you work with like the plague.
It sounds like your lover/boss
has got herself into a state; she
likes being married, but doesn’t
like being faithful. But that’s for
her to sort out.

JANE SAYS: You’ve got to
be able to respect the
person you’re sharing
your life with.
Sadly, if you constantly
find yourself looking at
your man with nothing but
contempt and loathing,
then maybe you have to
accept that you’ve come to
the end of your rainbow.
I get the impression that
your guy is not only tight
with money, but he’s mean
spirited too.
A lot of people in this
world are extremely poor
but would do anything for
their fellow man.
If you feel that he sucks
the life out of you and fails
to enrich your existence,
then what point is there in
carrying on?
Watching him deny a
disabled woman a lift home
must have been a defining
moment for you.
You’re clearly only still
with this man out of habit.
Be brave and change that
bad habit.
Greed made
me so nasty
I DEEPLY regret being so horrible to everyone in my old
job. I was so ambitious, greedy and selfish that I rode
roughshod over anyone in my way. I fancied myself as a
female Gordon Gekko in heels.
Now I’ve met a gorgeous guy. His love has forced me to
calm down and stop being nasty. I’m doing loads of charity
work and finally like myself, but can’t stop feeling horribly
guilty about my shameful past.
JANE SAYS: The chances are that most of the people you
used to work with have changed direction and moved on.
I bet the vast majority of ex-colleagues wouldn’t even
remember you if you rocked up now. Why don’t you accept
that was then and this is now? Regrets won’t do you any

you’re finally giving something back.

INSTEAD of daydreaming about how you might
resolve a situation, face up to it. Summon the
courage to take action and work through your problems.
When you encounter setbacks, stay calm. If you have to
use your imagination, use it to find ways to be useful.
AN unusual job offer is on the horizon. Consider opportunities relating to travel, teaching, writing and research. You might be called on to
share your experiences and expertise. This extra
income will allow you to pay off debts.

soon be offered a prominent position. Fortunately, you are

YOU aren’t responsible for other people’s mistakes. A friend regularly goes through financial
problems but they can’t keep expecting you to bail them
out. Don’t pay off their debts or loan them money. You have
a right to use your money for your own benefit.
WHETHER it is spending more time on hobbies or splashing out on something special,
it’s important to make yourself happy. Pamper yourself,
for a change. If you are single, you could meet someone special at a concert or play.

YOUR positive attitude attracts upbeat people.
Friends admire how you look on the bright side.
You are a generous person and most people find your honesty refreshing. A colleague who tries to block your ideas is
envious of your popularity. Respond with a tolerant smile.
SOMEONE is making your life difficult. You
would love to get revenge but this will trap
you in a negative situation. Leave Karma to do its work
without you and focus instead on loving relationships
that make you feel good about yourself.

SPREAD positive energy. Celebrate the
good fortune of your family and friends.
Optimism is good for health and people will know you
are sincere when you say you are happy for them. Seeing people succeed inspires you to be successful too.
THE more help you receive from others, the
easier you will find it to overcome problems. You
aren’t a failure by admitting you are struggling and could do
with help. If you aren’t feeling well, let a loved one pamper
you. You can’t keep doing everything on your own.

Un De Sceaux, who has won
the Clarence House for the
past three seasons, clashed
with Altior in the Tingle
Creek at Sandown last
month.
In torrential rain, the pair
produced one of the races
of the season so far, with
Altior proving too strong on
the run up the hill to win by
four lengths.
Ruth Jefferson could run
Waiting Patiently following
his unfortunate early exit in
the
King
George
at
Kempton.
The Paul Nicholls-trained
Politologue
could
also
drop back in trip after
having
his
stamina
limitations exposed in the
Boxing Day showpiece when
finishing fourth behind
Clan Des Obeaux.

There may
be more to
come from HOLY
HEART (nap). He has
had just three outings but
was a ready winner at
Kempton and the form of
that race has been
boosted. On that
evidence he appears to
be on a favourable mark
for his handicap debut.
Glory Of Paris was
having just his second
start for Mick Appleby
when a comfortable
winner over course and
distance. He is up 8lb but
the yard continue in
decent form and his
chance must be
respected along with
Glenn Coco. He has two
course victories to his
name, the latest over
seven furlongs, off a 2lb
lower mark. He has
winning form at today’s
trip and remains well
treated. Samphire Coast
has five course and
distance victories to his
name but has never won
off a mark this high.
5.55
A competitive
sprint but
GRACIOUS JOHN
(nb) can defy top weight.
He has a good record on
the all-weather and
comes here on the back
of a very good effort at
Wolverhampton when a
close third in a similar
event where he had both
Tropics and Jumira
Bridge behind. A repeat
gives him every chance
but expect both
Teruntum Star and
Verne Castle to run him
close. They finished just
behind the selection
when the three of them
filled the places in a
Lingfield handicap won by
Corinthia Knight. At the
revised weights there is
little to separate them.
6.25
There will be
interest in It’s
All A Joke after his
comfortable Lingfield
success from Becker,
who has a 4lb pull for one
length. Both should make
their presence felt but
SHAMSHON (treble)
may prove the stronger.
He was tad disappointing
on his latest start but the
time before had won very
easily at Wolverhampton
from It’s All A Joke and
at the weights should
confirm the placings.
Joegogo has been out of
sorts but as a
consequence has slipped
to a very attractive mark
and now sits 7lb lower
than when last successful.
That was here over track
and trip, so a return to
form would see him take a
hand in the finish.
Rooneys score
PAUL and Clare Rooney
returned to the winner’s

Cheltenham have yet to
hear from the Rooneys

CRACK French trainer Guillaume Macaire,
noted for his previous successful raids to
these shores, hopes to rekindle those glory
days with Master Dino at Plumpton on
Sunday.
Master Dino, considered the best hurdler in France last year,
will have his second outing over fences in a two mile and three
furlong novice chase at the Sussex track.
The five-year-old looked an exciting recruit to chasing when
romping home effortlessly by 30 lengths at Auteuil in November.
Connections now have their eyes on the JLT Chase at the
Cheltenham in March and success at Plumpton would put the
gelding in line for a £60,000 bonus if he can land both races.
Ladbrokes offer 16-1 about Master Dino for the JLT Chase.
Macaire gained widespread recognition with Jair Du Cochet
who beat triple Cheltenham Gold Cup winner

The former world No.1’s latest comeback ended after two matches as
he lost 7-5 6-2 in only 81 minutes at the Brisbane International.
From missing two break points at 5-5 in the first set, the Scot lost six
consecutive games to the Russian.
It underlined how difficult it will be for Murray to return to the top
of the game at the age of 31.
Murray, who beat James Duckworth on New Year’s Day, won the
title in his last two appearances in Queensland. He said: “I made
too many mistakes. When you play
better players – he is 15 in the world
or so, a top player – they will expose
any errors you make in your game
or any shots you are not hitting
particularly well.
“As you play up the levels and you

are not serving as well or moving as
offer
well, better players exploit that.

THE GREATEST
THROWMAN
TOUCHDOWN
AMERICAN FOOTBALL
with IAN WHITTELL
NICK FOLES’ fairy-tale season
with the Philadelphia Eagles
shows no sign of ending after
he set up the defending
champions’ showdown with the
Chicago Bears.
The 29-year-old back-up
quarterback led Phili to last
season’s Super Bowl after
stepping in for injured first
choice Carson Wentz.
And few would bet against him
doing exactly the same again
this season after he replaced
Wentz at the start of last month
and turned in an incredible
show in last week’s 24-0 win
over the Washington Redskins.
That victory – coupled with
the Minnesota Vikings’ defeat to
the Bears – booked the Eagles
the last wild-card spot in the
NFC and a meeting, coincidentally, with Chicago on Sunday.
Wentz suffered a rib injury
and made way for third-choice
QB Nate Sudfeld before the end
of the game but is expected to
be fit for the
weekend.
Coach
Doug
Pederson
said:
“We’ll
take care
of him
and make
sure he’s
ready for

seems likely the Eagles will let
Foles (above) go this summer
in search of regular first-team
action and build their future
around Wentz.
But before he leaves, Foles
and his team look in the mood
to cause more upsets.
Safety Malcolm Jenkins said:
“We are not sneaking into the
play-offs. We are here to do
some damage.”
In the other wild-card clashes
this weekend, the LA Chargers
will visit the Baltimore Ravens
on Sunday.
And 24 hours earlier, the
Houston Texans host the
Indianapolis Colts, while the
Seattle Seahawks travel to the
Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys are the sleeping
giants of the NFL and are
without a Super Bowl win since
1995, though high-profile owner
Jerry Jones is desperate to put
an end to that drought.
Jones said: “I want it for
everything we stand for. I want

we want it for our fans.”
Mighty Mike: I’m
just too Powerful
MICHAEL VAN GERWEN has
dismissed the possibility of
a ‘greatest of all time’ shootout with Phil Taylor.
After the Dutchman’s third world title
in six years established him as the best
player of his generation there is one
final challenge left for him.
Is he the best ever – or will Phil Taylor’s
feats remain untouchable and set him
apart for eternity?
‘The Power’, who handed in his Tour
card a year ago, revealed last month he
would consider coming out of retirement for a one-off encore, like his payper-view showdown against Andy
Fordham in 2004, if the price was right
and the public wanted it.
On the evidence of the William Hill
PDC World Championship at Alexandra
Palace, there are few showdowns the
fans want to see more than a final
Taylor-MVG face-off.
Taylor’s 16 world titles have not
been forgotten by the crowds, who
chanted his name most nights at a
largely disappointing tournament.
And Van Gerwen, whose £500,000 prize
money after a 7-3 win
against
Michael
Smith in the final

He is due to defend his Premier

He added: “A decade of

PREMIER LEAGUE
HARRY NEW
YEAR
Fired-up Kane
■ by DAVE ARMITAGE
HARRY KANE wants to make 2019
a year to remember for Spurs.
The England skipper celebrated the New Year
with an MBE but says his big wish for the next 12
months is to stick a trophy in the cabinet at the
club’s new stadium after an 11-year drought.
Tottenham sit second in the Premier League table, next Tuesday face the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea and tomorrow
start out on the FA Cup trail against Tranmere.
Spurs’ last silverware was the League Cup in
2008 and Kane says he would be happy to put
personal glory aside and see Mauricio Pochettino’s men give the fans something to celebrate.
The striker said: “Wishes for 2019? Same as
last year – to win a team trophy.
“It didn’t quite happen but that’s the goal and
that’s what I’m aiming for personally. Hopefully
we can achieve that.”
Winning
Spurs trail leaders Liverpool by six points after
just coming up short in the last three campaigns,
with a second and two third-place finishes.
Kane added: “It’s not in our control. We can only
do what we can do and try to win our games.
“Over the past few years we’ve been in this position with Leicester and then Chelsea the year
after. We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves.”
He admits he’ll be rooting for Manchester City
to put one over Liverpool tonight and rein in the
title favourites.
Kane said: “Winning games is all we can do and
we’ll see what happens with Liverpool and City
but we can’t think too much about other teams.
“We’ve been there before and from this stage on
we’ve done really well. We won a lot of games
and I think in previous years the teams above us
have just won their games as well.
“We can’t take anything for granted, just do what
we can. Liverpool are out in front at the moment
and deservedly so because they are in top form.
“We’d probably prefer City to win to make it a
little bit closer but that’s not in our control.”
The 25-year-old hitman says Saturday’s 3-1 defeat by Wolves was a major blow, although Spurs
bounced back at Cardiff on Tuesday, winning 3-0.
He added: “Wolves was just one of those things
– a kind of kick up the bum for us.
“We were playing well, winning games, then
that happened. We were 1-0 up and all of a
sudden we were 3-1 down.
“It just shows that in the Premier League you
can’t rest on your laurels.
“You have to keep working hard and a lot of
energy is needed. I was proud of the boys for the
way we bounced back against Cardiff.”

management at Sheffield
Wednesday – even though
he faces a frustrating
month-long wait before he

Just three months after
being axed by Aston Villa,
Bruce was named as the
Owls’ new boss.
But Bruce, 58, can’t begin
his new job at the Championship club until February

A source close to Bruce
said: “Steve wanted a quick
return to the game, and
he’s absolutely delighted to
get the opportunity with a
big club like Wednesday.”
Bruce’s first game in
charge will be at Ipswich
on February 2 and in the

They will work alongside
caretaker Lee Bullen, who
has been in control since

PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE SHOWDOWN
THUNDER AND
FRIGHTENING
Klopp says Liverpool have to
weather City storm
■
REIGN MAN:
Jurgen Klopp’s
ready for a whirlwind
at the Etihad tonight
■ by CHRIS McKENNA
JURGEN KLOPP expects
another “thunderstorm”
at the Etihad tonight.
The Liverpool manager is NOT
talking about the weather but a
repeat of a whirlwind start from
Manchester City.
In April, when the Reds last visited
the Etihad, Kop boss Klopp was
wary of it raining goals, with City
needing to score four to turn around
a 3-0 deficit in the Champions
League quarter-finals.
Gabriel Jesus scored early for Pep
Guardiola’s side as they stormed in
front.
But Liverpool weathered the early
onslaught and came from behind to
win 2-1 on the night and book their
place in the semi-finals.
Now the Merseysiders face a City
side desperate to stay in the
Premier League title race but who
trail the league leaders by seven
points going into tonight’s titanic
tussle.
Klopp won’t admit it, but if his
side win tonight the defending
champions face an almost impossible
task of closing a 10-point gap.
Onslaught
City’s backs are against the wall
and Klopp is ready for another
onslaught from a side he still
considers the best in the world
despite a December dip that saw
them slip from top to third.
Asked if he expected an onslaught,
Klopp said: “I think we should.
“I don’t respond in a geographic
way, but it will be a very intense
game. That is how it is.
“It was a thunderstorm (last
season). They said before the game
they could do it from 3-0 down, and
everyone knew they could.
“It’s a normal game away against
Manchester City, a very difficult
one, one of the most difficult ones
you can play.
“We have to be prepared as good
as possible, we have to be brave,
full of desire, angry, all that stuff,
like in all the other games.
“But the opponent, for me, is still
the best team in the world. And I
don’t say that to say it, I said it
weeks ago.
“Ruthless, full of desire, greedy.
Everything you need to be really
successful. December was not their
month but now it is January.”
Liverpool were hammered 5-0 by
City at the Etihad early in last
season’s league campaign, which
Klopp said was a key moment as they
also lost Sadio Mane to a straight red
card and a three-game ban.
But while they did not challenge
the Manchester club for the title,
they did go all the way to the
■
GIFT OF THE GAB:
Jesus celebrates
his second-minute goal
at the Etihad last April
Champions League Final before
losing to Real Madrid in Kiev.
And Klopp believes the current
squad reaching such a big stage
helped ease the burden of the club’s
illustrious history and allowed them
to make more strides this season.
He likened the weight to a backpack as he continues to dismiss
talk of the title and ending their
29-year wait for an English
league crown.
“I think we finally got rid
of the backpack when we
reached
the
Champions
League Final,” Klopp added.
“So that was the moment when
we did something really special.
Yes, we didn’t win it, but the
ride there was unbelievable,
the journey was unbelievable.
Since then it feels different.
“Long ago we were running
around with this kind of backpack.
Sometimes they give it to you for a
game and then they take it away.
“During the last season, with the
very special excitement that the
boys delivered with this very
special run to the Champions
League final.
“I think that was ‘only’ this
team. It wasn’t because of 2005.
“We have no problems with
comparisons. But at some
point you have to be
yourself and not to try to
be like someone else.
Last season we
were ourselves.”
If
reaching
the Champions League
Final removed the
heavy backpack, then
winning the Premier
League title will have
them walking on air – and
they can take a big leap
towards that tonight.
Pep: It is game on

know. That is the point. What do I
think? Yes, we are ready. I don’t have
doubts but honestly I don’t know.
“It’s the same as when we had a 10 or
11-point lead. If you asked me if we
would maintain that distance for a long
time, I don’t know.
“I have a game in my mind, I know
what we want to do. I will speak with the
players. That is what I feel, but I am not
good enough to anticipate what is
going to happen.”
Guardiola, who is expected to have
Kevin De Bruyne (left) fit again following
a muscle strain, has no intention of
feeling the pressure himself. He said: “It
is an incredible pleasure. I’m a manager
to play these kind of games, to see what
we can do on the big stage with a lot of
people supporting us in our stadium.
It’s a dream to play these kind of
games.”
And City captain Vincent Kompany
claims the crunch clash is not the
title-defining game many people believe.
He said: “I am not interested in the
outcome just yet. I’ve been in the game
long enough to know how important
this game is but at the same time know
this is not the all-defining game.
“So many things can happen. Who
would have thought we would have
three difficult games in December?”

PREMIER LEAGUE ACTION
ASH BANG
WALLOPED
Two off as Clarets sink Terriers
ASHLEY Barnes fired Burnley
to a first Premier League win
on the road in January to lift
the Clarets clear of the
relegation zone.
But they needed the help of a
Huddersfield red card to land the spoils
in a scrappy and at times bad-tempered
battle of the Roses in which Robbie
Brady also received his marching orders
on 90 minutes.
Unfortunately for the Terriers, Brady’s
red came too late to rescue a point – the
Clarets midfielder receiving a straight
red for hacking down Isaac Mbenza as he
charged in towards goal.
Strikes by Chris Wood and Barnes,
with a calm finish on 74 minutes,
cancelled out a first goal of the season
for any Huddersfield forward, Steve
Mounie breaking a drought which
stretched back to May.
Spirit
And Sean Dyche’s side’s two vital goals
sandwiched the pivotal moment in the
match when Chris Schindler received a
second caution for pulling back Dwight
McNeil.
Victory lifted Burnley two points away
from the relegation places. But defeat
left Huddersfield rock-bottom and
having lost for the fourth home game in
a run for the first time since 1934-35 –
another unwanted club record.
The problem for the Terriers has not
been a lack of spirit or fight but a lack of
goals with just four at home all season
and a dozen in all.
Last night’s focal point, Mounie, even
held the dubious distinction of
having more attempts on goal (32) and

2
shots on target (15) without scoring than
any other top-flight player this season.
But all that was forgotten in an instant
last night.
On 33 minutes Mounie finally ended
his drought, rising between Ben Mee and
Charlie Taylor to glance home a cross
from Isaac Mbenza – the first goal for a
Terriers striker in eight months.
Huddersfield’s lead lasted just seven
minutes however, Burnley levelling
through Wood – his seventh goal against
the Terriers – after McNeil capitalised
on indecision from Florent Hadergjonaj
and squared for the striker to slot home
from six yards out.
Huddersfield’s night took an almost
immediate turn for the worse just
one minute later when Schindler
received his second yellow card of the
night swiftly followed by a first red.
The centre-half had been booked for a
foul on Wood on the half-hour mark and
could have no complaints after hauling
down McNeil on the edge of the box.
It proved the pivotal moment in the
match – and the visitors made their man
advantage tell 16 minutes from time
when Barnes dispatched Westwood’s
through-ball to clinch victory.
Huddersfield boss David Wagner said:
“We know no team has stayed up with 10
points after 21 games, but we have beaten
statistics before. This is exactly what

King after his goal

and to be the first to do something

Not surprisingly, Wagner’s Clarets
counterpart, Sean Dyche, was in upbeat
mood declaring: “The belief is growing
again in what we do. We scored a really
good goal and then the sending-off
changes the feel of the game.
“It is game of patience and believing
we will break them down and we did.”

A FALSE fire alarm in the East Stand delayed
kick-off at the Vitality Stadium last night
before this one caught fire on the pitch.
Bournemouth and Watford shared six
first-half goals – with four in seven crazy
minutes – to warm up the chilly night.
Recalled Hornets captain Troy Deeney
scored twice and terrorised the home
defence all evening.
But Eddie Howe celebrated the 10th
anniversary of his taking the Bournemouth
job by seeing his injury-hit side battle to stay
in the match and record a first draw since
October after nine defeats in 11 games.
And only the brilliance of Ben Foster after
the break denied the Cherries the win.
The point moves Watford up a place to
eighth in search of their highest-ever
Premier League finish – and they were
denied an injury-time penalty by referee
David Coote when sub Tom Cleverley’s shot
hit the hand of Nathan Ake in the box.
Bournemouth began brightly with David
Brooks and Jefferson Lema shooting wide.
But Watford took the lead with a fine team
goal after 14 minutes. After working the ball
across the pitch, Abdoulaye Doucoure
released Ken Sema down the right and the
Swede’s cross was headed home by Deeney.
The striker doubled the lead – and netted
his fifth of the season – 13 minutes later.
Dan Gosling gave the ball away in midfield
and Gerard Deulofeu raced towards goal.
The retreating Steve Cook slid in with a

tackle but the loose ball fell for Deeney to
ram home. It looked like it was not going to
be Bournemouth’s night when Doucoure
escaped with only a yellow card for a
shocking knee-high tackle on Ryan Fraser.
But the Cherries were soon level during a
chaotic end to the opening period.
Fraser floated a 34th-minute free-kick to the
back post to allow Cook to head back across
goal and Ben Foster saved Gosling’s header
but Nathan Ake nodded home.
Three minutes later another deadball from
the Scotland star saw England striker Callum
Wilson head into the top corner.
But Watford reclaimed the lead barely a
minute later when Sema volleyed home his
first goal for the club after Deeney caused
more chaos in the Bournemouth rearguard.
To cap a crazy seven minutes, emergency
right-back Junior Stanislas crossed and both
strikers dummied to allow the unmarked
Fraser to sweep home at the back post.
The first half saw nine shots on target –
and six goals – and inevitably the pace
dropped after the break.
After 64 minutes, Wilson met another
Fraser free-kick only for Foster to claw away
his header. And 11 minutes later he raced
out of his goal to block King’s fierce shot
and then claim the rebound.

Supersubs spark Marko
MANUEL PELLEGRINI produced a
double sub masterstroke to inspire
a stunning West Ham comeback.
The Hammers were heading for a third
successive defeat to a Brighton team on course to
assume bogey-side status after scoring twice
here in two second-half minutes.
But Pellegrini chucked on Mark Noble and
Michail Antonio and they combined to help
rescue a point against the Seagulls.
Pellegrini said: “We know Brighton score most
of their goals from set pieces and mostly
corners so to concede two goals knowing their
characteristics was disappointing.
“But we never gave up, and the two subs
changed the face of the game.”
Noble set up Marko Arnautovic’s first goal with
one of his first passes and was also involved
before Antonio teed up the Austrian’s equaliser.
They were Arnautovic’s first goals since
November and his return from injury after

missing most of December with a hamstring
problem as he resumed his talisman’s role.
Andy Carroll’s name leapt out off the team
sheet as he was handed his first Hammers
start for exactly a year, when he scored a
match-winning brace against West Brom.
And so too did that of Samir Nasri, with the
Frenchman starting on the bench following his
arrival on a free transfer after the completion of
his 18-month doping ban.
After an uneventful first 20 minutes Felipe
Anderson had a chance to liven things up but
scuffed his chance when Martin Montoya’s
clearance fell his way. Arnautovic tested David
Button from the edge of the box and then had his
tame penalty appeals – after he tumbled under
contact from Lewis Dunk – waved away.
Carroll was replaced by Lucas Perez at halftime. The striker had earlier taken a hefty whack
to the head from Dunk that required treatment.
Anderson was inches away from driving West
Ham into the lead in the 53rd minute.
Fortunate
But against the run of play it was Brighton
who took the lead.
They won a fortunate corner when the ball
bounced behind off Issa Diop, keeper Lukasz
Fabianski failed to deal with the resulting
corner and his pat down was only a perfect
assist for Dale Stephens to volley in his first
goal in almost a year.
Two minutes later Brighton looked on course
for a third straight win over West Ham when
Shane Duffy managed to volley it in as he fell.
■
OFF THE
MARKO:
Arnautovic
scores his first
Pellegrini’s response was to chuck on Noble and
Antonio in the 63rd minute – and they sparked
the comeback almost immediately.
Noble’s ball over the top led to the first which
Arnautovic forced in after holding off Duffy.
And two minutes later, Noble combined with
Antonio down the right, who bamboozled and
bullied Bernardo before crossing for Arnautovic
to stab in the equaliser.
After that the momentum was all West Ham’s
and Brighton boss Chris Hughton said: “It’s
hugely disappointing. I’m realistic enough to
know the level of team we are, away points are
going to be more difficult to get than home ones.”

Drive
Chelsea not only need to finish in the top
four to give Eden Hazard a reason to stay
committed, they also need a top-four spot to
attract that superior quality.
Chelsea’s biggest chances came from
Hazard’s boot. After 33 minutes Antonio
Rudiger’s ball over the top found the winger
in space and Angus Gunn – making his
Premier League debut – took one in the face
for his troubles.
In the 57th minute Gunn stood up to
Hazard again, this time parrying a drive
from just outside the box. Two minutes
after that a ball over the top from David
Luiz almost released Hazard again.
Where was Alvaro Morata all this
time? Largely anonymous. It says much
about his contribution that his
team-mates repeatedly looked for
Hazard instead.
When he did eventually get the ball into
the net, in the 70th minute, he was flagged
offside. A decision that TV pictures
suggested was an incorrect one.
Ralph Hasenhuttl and his men were even
able to survive an injury-time penalty
shout when Shane Long bundled over
Marcos Alonso in the box. It should have
been given. But then victory would have
flattered Chelsea. Massively.
Hasenhuttl said: “The guys were brave.
It was an amazing fight. Gunn made some
good saves and I’m happy with him.”

Blues in
to Pul off
big deal
■ by PAUL BROWN
CHELSEA kicked off what
could be a big-spending
transfer window yesterday
when they splashed £57.6m
on Christian Pulisic.
The 20-year-old Borussia
Dortmund and USA winger
has signed a five-and-halfyear deal at Stamford
Bridge but was loaned back
to the German club for the
rest of the season.
His arrival sparked fears
about the future of
academy youngster Callum
Hudson-Odoi, whose
contract is up in 18 months.
But Chelsea have rejected
a £20m offer from Bayern
Munich for the 18-year-old
and insist he is going
nowhere.
Pulisic, who has scored
three goals and has four
assists this season, was
also wanted by Liverpool
and it’s understood their
interest pushed up the price.
Dortmund said the deal is
“extremely lucrative… given
the low contract maturity”
because Pulisic was due to
become a free agent at the
end of next season.
CHELSEA proved last night
just how much they need new
blood.
They completed the £57.6m signing of
Christian Pulisic yesterday but the whole
squad looks like it needs major surgery.
New stars are needed with the old stagers,
and many of the squad that lifted the title
under Antonio Conte, looking to have lost
their sparkle.
No wonder some home fans booed at the
final whistle. Chelsea are going backwards.
It is a long time since Stamford Bridge has
been as quiet as it was for large periods of
the first half. The Chelsea faithful had so
little to shout about you could hear the
players on the pitch.
Following his arrival last summer,
Maurizio Sarri initially banished the
disillusionment that the club had been
plunged into under Conte.
An 18-match unbeaten run in all
competitions,
between
August
and
November, generated real belief that Chelsea
could even launch a surprise title challenge.
Those heady days are long gone.
Sarri said: “I think we played a good match.
We created opportunities. But it’s not easy in
this kind of match because they were very
compact. Very low. We need to solve the
problem of the last 15 or 20 metres because
in this moment it is not easy to score the first
goal. But the performance is good.”
BRIDGE BOUND: Pulisic
■
BLANK EXPRESSION:
Eden Hazard shows
his frustration as a chance
goes begging last night
His arrival will not be the
end of the comings and
goings, with Cesc Fabregas
set to play his last game for
the Blues this weekend.
The 31-year-old is on the
verge of joining Thierry
Henry at Monaco, where he
will earn a signing-on
bonus of more than £9m.
Veteran defender Gary
Cahill is also close to a
loan switch to Fulham,
which will effectively end
Chelsea career as he is out
of contract in the summer.
Misfit midfielder Danny
Drinkwater has also been
made available, while the
club are putting pressure
on playmaker Eden Hazard
to decide his future.
Real Madrid have yet to
make a serious move for
Hazard, who is one of three
other players, along with
Pedro, 31, and Willian, 30,
who will be out of contract
in 2020.
But boss Maurizio Sarri
wants to know whether
they can plan for the future
with the Belgium star.
Pulisic, who has been a
long-term target, is the first
stage of that process and is
unlikely to be the only
signing this month.
He said: “It’s a privilege to
have signed for such a
legendary club.
“I look forward to being a
contributor to their team of
world-class players.”

CRYSTAL CHEER:

JOR DROPPER
WILFRIED ZAHA might have
forgotten how to score, but
Palace won’t be worrying
about that too much.
Jordan Ayew celebrated his recall to
the side with a crucial 83rd-minute
deadlock-breaker to stun Wolves.
Palace added a second with the very
last kick – a Luka Milivojevic penalty
after Zaha had been sent tumbling by
Ryan Bennett.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson only made
one change – bringing in Ayew for Jeff
Schlupp – and saw it give him a bumper
pay-off.
Ayew was right on the spot to ram the
ball home from eight yards as Palace
finally made the breakthrough.
Up to that point it had been pretty
uneventful with neither side taking
things by the scruff of the neck.
As it seemed to be fading to an
unmemorable stalemate, Ayew stepped
up and put a whole new look on it.
Zaha was involved and that’s just as
well really because he’s not having the
best of times in front of goal. This was
**

the 14th game on the spin that Palace’s
main man has failed to find the net.
But he’ll point to an invaluable assist
in the lead up to Ayew’s decisive late
strike.
Zaha had already sparked a game of
ping pong in the Wolves box which saw
about four players having shots blocked.
But when the ball came back to him on
the left, he played it out to Patrick van
Aanholt, who sent it to the edge of the
six-yard box where Ayew was lurking.
He made no mistake, killing it dead
with his right before steering a shot into
the net with his left.
Wolves were stunned and had shown
little to suggest that they might claw it
back, though they gave Palace a real
scare when sub Ruben Neves lashed in
a 25-yarder which forced the keeper
into a good save.
Both managers would have fancied
nabbing all three points after the shadow
boxing of the first half.
Serious
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo can’t
have been happy at his side’s failure to
make any serious inroads on the Palace
goal before the break.
When they did, they got it horribly
wrong – Willy Boly messing up a great
chance from an Ivan Cavaleiro corner a
few minutes before the interval. The big
defender found himself with time and an
obscene amount of space eight yards out
but he failed to get any sort of proper
contact
Palace boss Hodgson said: “We need to
score goals, we’re well aware of that and
we’ve not been scoring enough.
“But I think our position is a little bit
false and we proved that with this result.
“Wolves are in excellent form so to
come here and win against a team with
that confidence is very pleasing.”

racked up his fourth win in a
row as boss – and matched
United legend Sir Matt Busby.
Busby was the only boss to win his first
four games in charge back in 1946, until the
Norwegian’s remarkable revival of Jose
Mourinho’s side continued at St James’
Park.
Late strikes from substitute Romelu
Lukaku and Marcus Rashford – teed up
by Alexis Sanchez, also off the bench –
clinched the points and condemned Newcastle to another nervy relegation battle.
Soon the debate will start asking whether
Solskjaer deserves to stay in charge beyond
this season.
Fresh from scoring 12 in their previous
three games after Mourinho’s departure,
the visitors were shackled for the first hour.
But it was Solskjaer’s 63rd-minute substitution which shook the game out of its stalemate – Lukaku coming on with Sanchez.
Crafted
Just a minute later, the Belgian smashed
home his eighth goal of the season, reacting
quickest to a fumble by Newcastle keeper
Martin Dubravka.
Rashford lined up a free-kick from 30 yards
and drove it down the middle of the goal.
Dubravka made his Premier League debut
against United last February and was man
of the match as the Geordies won 1-0.
But he failed to hold Rashford’s palmstinger, spilling into the danger area and letting razor-sharp Lukaku slot home.
The second was well crafted on the
break, with Rashford and Lukaku tearing up the right, freeing Sanchez.
He played a defence-splitting pass to Rashford, who slotted home to finish the contest.
Toon boss Rafa Benitez tries to grind out
points against sides with vastly superior
playing resources, but it rarely works.
This was one of those nights, as Newcastle
banked up behind the ball.
It is doubtful whether Mourinho’s lacklustre version of United would have broken
Newcastle down but Solskjaer’s version has
a zest which won through. For the Toon,

there will be more games like this in a
month full of peril – including games
against Chelsea, Man City and Spurs plus
relegation rivals Cardiff.
This wasn’t the rampant, fizzing United of
the first three games of Solskjaer’s interim
reign but they were largely in control.
Rashford tested Dubravka with a free-kick
and Anthony Martial burst into the box in
an early warning.
Benitez had spotted a chink in the Old
Trafford system and his side sprung Christian Atsu in behind the United defence three
times from the left channel, forcing saves
from David De Gea to lift the home side.
There were signs of sloppiness when
Phil Jones’ clumsy touch played in Salomon Rondon but the defender mopped up
with an excellent covering tackle.
DeAndre Yedlin broke well to allow Rondon to nod over for Newcastle’s best chance
before half-time.
And there was a brief flashpoint when
Jonjo Shelvey raked his studs down the back
of Paul Pogba’s leg.
Rashford was a bright spark, worrying the
home side with his pace. His cut-back from
the byline ended in a shot over the bar as
United struggled to create clear chances.
But his moment would come, and United
were comfortable winners in the end.

Juve so hot
on Ramsey
■ by DARREN WITCOOP
JUVENTUS have confirmed their
interest in signing Arsenal star
Aaron Ramsey this summer.
The midfielder, 28, is free to speak
to foreign clubs and sign a pre-contract agreement with just six months
left on his contract at the Emirates.
Ramsey, also interesting Paris
St-Germain and Bayern Munich, is
available on a Bosman free transfer.
Italian giants Juve are ready to
offer the Welshman a four-year
contract worth £140,000 a week with
a £12m signing-on fee.
Juve’s sporting director Fabio
Paratici said: “Ramsey’s a very good
player who has been playing at a
high level for many years.
“We always pay great attention to
the situations offered by the transfer
market because it is our duty. So we
also pay attention to Ramsey.”

come here with the fans
they have got, it was
really excellent.”
Victory also earned
Solskjaer (above) a
place in the record
books, having matched
Sir Matt Busby’s run of
four straight wins since
taking charge.
Lukaku, who came off
the bench to fire United
ahead, was quick to hail
the impact of the
Norwegian since he
replaced Jose Mourinho
last month.
He said: “It’s totally
different with the new
manager. We are all
learning from him and
so far, so good.”
Newcastle are on the
way to their worst home
record in a season after
slumping to an eighth
defeat in 11 games.
That already equals
their second-worst
losing haul at St James’
Park with four months
of the campaign to go.
Magpies boss Rafa
Benitez said: “We have
to be disappointed in
the way we lost.
“For 85 minutes of the
game we deserved
something.”
Benitez insisted their
poor home form is an
overriding concern,
adding: “We are close.
We made a mistake and
paid a price for that.”
TIM REAM has urged Fulham’s
dressing room to unite again after
Aboubakar Kamara apologised for
his penalty-taking cock-up.
The French striker was left on the
bench for the 4-1 defeat to Arsenal
on New Year’s Day.
Just days earlier Kamara had
insisted on taking a spot-kick ahead
of Aleksandar Mitrovic –
only to miss against Huddersfield.
His blushes were spared by
Mitrovic’s late winner and he later
apologised to boss Claudio Ranieri
and his team-mates.
Defender Ream said: “We are all
trying to pull in the same direction.
“Abou apologised. The next day we
put it all behind us. We have drawn
a line under it and moved on.”
Zouma tips

KURT ZOUMA insists Everton can
turn their horror form around.
The Toffees have won just one of
their last eight games and are on 27
points – the same as they were at
this stage last season despite boss
Marco Silva shelling out close to
£100m on revamping his team.
But on-loan Chelsea defender
Zouma is confident they can turn
their fortunes around after the
abject showing in the New Year’s
Day defeat at home to Leicester.
The 24-year-old French ace said:
“We need to grow as a team and
when you don’t win, you learn.
“We have to be back at it again
next week. Of course we have the
quality in the team to do it.”

JUMP FOR JOY:
Marcus Rashford
after making it 2-0
Ole simply
four-some
■ by IAN MURTAGH
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER
masterminded Manchester
United’s fourth successive win
last night.
And the caretaker boss is now
setting his sights on a top-four
finish.
Romelu Lukaku and Marcus
Rashford lifted United to six
points behind fourth-placed
Chelsea, as Solskjaer’s dream
start continued at Newcastle.
The Norwegian was more
delighted not to concede a goal
and said: “We have had clean
sheets from open play in
previous games but not from
set-plays.
“Walking away with one of
those doughnuts is great.
“It was a great hit by Marcus
and Romelu did his job by
following up on the rebound.
“We have played teams in the
lower half of the table but these

Guardiola (left) doesn’t know if
his men can cope with the pressure
of being hunters rather than the
hunted, but insisted: “We are ready.
“If it is different pressure, then
we have to live with it. We have to
handle it.
“Maybe people expected we would
always be top but we are Manchester City, we are not Liverpool or
Manchester United.
“In that situation, it is quite usual
in the history. That is why it is nice,
after what we have achieved in the
last decade, to still be up there.”
City cruised to the title last season
and losing tonight is not an option
for the champions.
Asked if his men can handle the
pressure, he said: “Honestly, I don’t
