Rip-off fury as council
bill to house homeless
surges to �n a year
9pIpXeN`cb`ejfe
PUBLIC spending on temporary
accommodation
in
England has surged by more
than 70 per cent in the past
?ve years to nearly �illion,
?gures suggest.
The
�3million
rise,
described by one council
leader as a ?rip-off?, stems
from a growing homeless
population and private providers raising their charges.
The Ministry of Housing,
Communities
and
Local
Government ?gures show
English
councils
spent
�7million on temporary
accommodation in 2017/18.
Five years earlier, they
spent �4million ? 71 per
cent less. And in the past ?ve
years, there has been a
47 per cent rise in the number
of English households in

temporary accommodation.
Comparing the data with
population per council, analysis suggests some councils
are spending up to �0 per
head of their population on
sheltering homeless house-
housing.? Shelter campaign
director Greg Beales said the
�illion bill ?is getting even
higher as landlords charge
desperate councils over the
odds for some of the least
suitable and worst places for
homeless families to live?.
Heather Wheeler, the minister for housing and homelessness, said temporary
accommodation
was
an
?important safety net?, which
ensured the most vulnerable
had a roof over their heads
until longer-term housing
could be found.
She said: ?We?re providing more than �2billion
to tackle all forms of homelessness.
?This includes funding for
programmes which will support more homeless families

SIX people died when a passenger
train was hit by debris from a freight
wagon on a bridge linking Denmark?s
two main islands yesterday.
There were 16 more casualties on the
intercity express carrying 131
passengers towards Copenhagen.
Reports claimed the train was hit by
a trailer or tarpaulin that had come
loose from a passing Carlsberg freight
train. Police said there had been
?considerable damage? to the train but
were unable to con?rm the exact cause.
A passenger said: ?There was a very,
very loud bang and then the train
stopped.? Another witness said
survivors had to step over dead bodies
in order to escape.
The accident happened during a
severe storm that hampered the rescue
operation on the 11-mile Great Belt
Bridge between Zealand and Funen.
Danish prime minister Lars Lokke
Rasmussen said the accident had
?shaken us all?. He tweeted: ?Ordinary
Danes on their way to work or on the
way home from Christmas holidays
have had their lives shattered.?
An investigation showed a trailer had
blown off a freight wagon. The Great
Belt, part of a route that links Denmark
and Sweden to Germany, carries
around 21,000 passengers and 27,000
vehicles daily.
Swedish prime minister Stefan
Lofven blamed the weather for the
?terrible train accident?. He said: ?Our
thoughts are with the injured and with
the families and relatives of the dead.?

Melody?s tea party clip, with help from her pal Romeo
9pD`Z_X\cBefnc\j
A WOMAN known as the
?horse barber? has created
incredible art by clipping the
coats of her equine friends.
Melody Hames set up the
Horse Barber brand ?ve years
ago and now practises her art
all over the world.
She has created incredible
clips, some taking as long as
10 hours to complete.
Her themes include the
First World War and hit TV
series Game Of Thrones.
Melody, 32, said: ?I started
clipping when I was around
nine and it has now become
my full-time job.
?I travel around the
world producing creative clips, as well as
teaching others.
?On average, I
can clip around
?ve horses a day.
?The creative
clips
obviously
take more time
and depend on
how far I can get in
a session.
?The horse?s wellbeing is my priority, so if
they become bored, I pack up
and start again the next day.
?People?s
reactions
are
just amazing when they get
to see the ?nished piece.?
Clipping marvel...business is
grooming for ?horse barber?
Melody, of Bury, Manchester,
also has a ?business partner?
? her horse Romeo, an eightyear-old Welsh Section D cob
and the centrepiece for much
of her creations.
One of her favourite
pieces was her Great
War clip featured
at this year?s
Your Horse Live
event.
There
was
also an Alice In
Wonderland
tea party clip,
which
helped
raise �588 for
Macmillan Cancer
plus dragons, native
American Indians and
unicorns, left.
Melody, who studied graphic
design at Salford University,
said: ?I?m as passionate about
the standard clips as I am
about the creative ones, but
they always stand out.
?The Remembrance Day
clip resonated with people
and went viral quite quickly.
?It took me six weeks to do
my research and I visited the
Imperial War Museum to get
some ideas.?
Melody sometimes has to
tailor designs to each horse,
depending on the coat colour
or hair type.
She has ?big plans? this
year, including returning to
the US to teach the theory of
horse clipping. She also wants
to set up online courses.
?I consider clipping to be an
amazing art form and would
love to get more people
involved,? she said.
?I have such a passion for
it and want to inspire
the younger generation with
my designs.?
Melody?s poignant First World War remembrance art captivated the public and went viral

Wannabe farmer... Spice Girl Geri Horner enjoys country life
SHUNNING life in the big city and
relocating to the countryside will make
you happier, a study revealed yesterday.
A quiet life in a rural area is likely to
leave you less stressed and feeling
safer ? with fresher air to breathe,
according to the research.
A nationwide survey of 2,000 Britons
found that more that 31 per cent of
those living in the countryside
considered themselves to be ?mostly
happy? ? compared to 23 per cent
of city dwellers.
A string of celebrities have invested in
country retreats in recent years,
including actress Sheridan Smith and
Spice Girl Geri Horner.
Horner, 46, lives with husband
9p?XeeX>\`jjc\i?\Xck_I\gfik\i
Christian on a sprawling estate in
Oxfordshire, complete with stables and
a boating lake. She was recently
pictured driving a mini-tractor.
And TV star Smith, 37, is loving her
new life in her very own farm. She said:
?I?ve always wanted to move away and
have my farm and just be surrounded by
animals. I?ve bought four donkeys, two
goats and two pigs.
?It?s just nice to be able to go away to
my animals and be able to come back to
my job, then go back to my animals.?
David Beckham, Jeremy Clarkson and
Kate Moss have all splashed out on
homes among the rolling hills of the
Cotswolds in recent years. One in ?ve of
those surveyed who lived in cities
admitted they were constantly stressed,
compared to just 10 per cent of those in
the countryside.
City residents are also more likely to
be worried about crime and the quality
of schools, and are twice as likely to
worry about air quality, says the study.
Ben Poynter, of estate agent Yopa,
which commissioned the survey, said:
?The countryside seems an appealing
option when living in a big city, faced
with the daily issues of catchment
areas, pollution, crime and general
quality of living.
?It is only natural for Brits to yearn for
a quieter and more peaceful way of life.?

Brexit blitz:
its plans for
Lumley to
host Baftas
night again
JOANNA Lumley will be
hosting the Bafta ?lm awards
for the second time.
The Absolutely Fabulous
actress, 72, took over from
Stephen Fry last year.
Lumley?s debut as host
notched up more than four
million viewers ? up on the
previous year.
She became the ?rst woman
to single-handedly host the
awards for more than 20 years.
Celebrities wore black to
show their support for the
Time?s Up movement.
This year?s event will be held
at London?s Royal Albert Hall
on February 10 and broadcast
on BBC One.
Cirque du Soleil will perform
a piece created for the
ceremony.
Emma Baehr, director of
awards at Bafta, said: ?We?re
At the Bafta helm, Joanna Lumley
delighted to be returning to the
iconic Royal Albert Hall for the
third year and collaborating
again with Cirque du Soleil.
?We?re thrilled that Joanna
has agreed to return as our host
for a second year.
?She was fantastic and we?re
looking forward to the
ceremony with her once again
at the helm.?
Fry, 61, quit after 12 years of
presenting the event.
The EE Rising Star
nominations are announced
today and the main
nominations are on January 9.
Gender link
for tumours
MORE men than women die
from brain tumours because
they have different genetic risk
factors, according to research.
Survival rates could be
improved by tailoring treatment
based on gender, say scientists.
The study identi?ed molecular
signatures of glioblastoma ? the
most aggressive form of the
disease ? that are distinctive
between the sexes. It kills
about half of patients within
14 months of diagnosis ? and is
nearly twice as common in men.
Co-senior author Professor
Joshua Rubin, a neuroscientist
at Washington University,
said: ?This study could have an
immediate impact on the care of
patients with glioblastoma.
?We should be stratifying
male and female glioblastoma
into risk groups and evaluating
the effectiveness of treatment
in a sex-speci?c manner.
?The biology of sex differences
and its application in medicine
is highly relevant, but almost
always ignored as an aspect
personalised treatment.?
<O:CLJ@M<
=IFDG8><FE<
all scenarios,? the Cabinet minister
says. And he adds: ?As 2019 begins,
we will accelerate our no-deal planning further.?
Mr Barclay?s article today is
expected to be seen as a fresh warning to Brussels of the need for further concessions in the row over the
?backstop? border mechanism.
UK negotiators are understood to
have quietly resumed talks with EU
counterparts in recent days, in the
push to win assurances ?with legal
force? that the backstop will not
keep us trapped inde?nitely in a
customs union with Brussels.
Mr Barclay says that, with the
Commons still bitterly divided, the
Government will take further steps
in the coming days to ensure the
country is prepared for failure to
reach a deal with Brussels.
He writes: ?There is obviously division in Parliament over the PM?s
Brexit deal.
?It?s not a perfect deal. But it?s the
only workable deal that delivers on
the democratic choice of the British
people. And it?s the best way to
avoid no deal.
?As we return to Parliament, MPs
must consider the alternative.?
The Exit Secretary says new Government measures to prepare for a
no deal will include:
New information from the Department of Transport, which sets out
its plans for ensuring that ?ights are
not disrupted;
Updated guidance from the Medicines and Healthcare products Reg-
蔇pZfcc\X^l\j`e
GXic`Xd\ekdljkglk
eXk`feXc`ek\i\jk詉jk�
ulatory Agency on guaranteeing
medical standards;
New advice from the Home Of?ce
on the need for UK citizens planning
travel to Europe on checking their
passports are up to date;
A public information campaign to
be launched next week on radio and
social media to raise awareness
about the need to be ready for a nodeal Brexit.
In an appeal to MPs to unite
behind Mrs May?s Brexit plans, Mr
Barclay adds: ?People did not vote
for the disruption and uncertainty of
no deal.
?The pace and intensity of the
work we are doing re?ects the potential scale of this disruption to people
and businesses across the UK.
?No deal will be far more likely if
MPs reject the PM?s Brexit deal later
this month.
?My colleagues in Parliament must
put the national interest ?rst and
vote for this deal so we can get on
with delivering Brexit and building
the UK?s prosperous future as an
outward-looking
global
trading
nation, outside the EU.?
Another Cabinet minister yesterday insisted the Prime Minister
could ??nd a way? to win the ?meaningful vote? on her Brexit plans later
this month.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt
said Eurosceptic Tory MPs could get
?absolutely everything we want? by
backing her deal.
Speaking during a visit to Singa-
N_pn\Xi\gi\gXi`e^]fiXcc
AS a new year begins, it is
customary to take stock of
progress and review our next
steps.
This is particularly true for the
Brexit preparations, which are
stepping up across the UK.
While the holiday break was
welcome, it did not mean the
Government?s work getting ready
for the possibility of a no deal
Brexit could be put on hold.
With the UK leaving the EU on
March 29, departments across
Whitehall have continued to ramp
up their work to prepare for Brexit
and ensure people and
businesses have the information
they need to get themselves ready.
We have agreed a deal with the
EU which allows the UK to leave in
good order and we now want to
see this deal passed by
Parliament.
D\[`Z`e\
But, as a responsible
government, we are preparing for
all scenarios which is why, before
Christmas, the Cabinet agreed to
intensify our no deal preparations.
After that meeting, we set out
further details on some of our
plans, such as the Department of
Health and Social Care expanding
medicine storage, the Home Of?ce
receiving �0million to employ
extra Border Force of?cers and for
law enforcement preparations,
and Defra being allocated
�0million to ensure trade in food
products, ?sh and chemicals
remains uninterrupted.
And, last week, the Department
for Transport set out plans for a
�0million investment in extra
cross-Channel ferry capacity to
JK<G?<E
98I:C8PDG
J<:I<K8IPF=JK8K<
=FI<O@K@E>K?<<L
ease potential delays at Dover in
the event of no deal.
These preparations follow more
than two years of extensive work
to get the UK ready.
Now, as 2019 begins, we will
accelerate our no deal planning
further.
The Home Of?ce will next week
be publicising guidance on new
passport rules for people
travelling to many European
countries. These rules would
mean some people have to renew
their passport earlier than
planned. Advice is already
available online and next week the
Home Of?ce will further publicise
how to renew a passport as easily
as possible.
The Department for Transport is
sharing guidance on how we will
ensure people can continue to
travel to the EU in the event of no
deal, and today the medicines
regulator has updated guidance to
ensure regulatory processes for
medicines, medical devices and
clinical trials are ?t for purpose.
And, on Tuesday, we will start a
new phase in our public
information campaign, using radio
and social media to further raise
awareness about the need to
prepare.
Meanwhile, the European
Commission and Ireland have
recently published details of their
own plans for no deal ? as we have
been encouraging them to do. The

pore, he said: ?We have a clear opportunity to leave the EU on March 29.
?It has the vast majority of things
that people wanted, not absolutely
everything.
?The question is, can we turn this
into something that gives us absolutely everything we wanted, and I
believe we can.
?There will be some tough negotiations to follow in the years ahead
but I think getting this clearer language on the backstop will help to
get it through Parliament.?
Mr Hunt also warned of ?devastating social consequences? if a second
EU referendum was triggered. And
he con?rmed the Government was
continuing its bid to change details
of the backstop within the Withdrawal Agreement.
He said: ?Theresa May has been
very clear this isn?t just about words,
but about text which has legal
force.
?She has also been very straightforward about this ? the EU has
agreed the backstop is temporary
and that?s a word they have agreed.
?So what we?re saying, very simply,
is we?re not asking for anything new
but we are asking you to de?ne what
temporary means so we can have
con?dence we?re not going to be
EU has echoed our commitment to
ensuring ?ights to and from the
EU go on uninterrupted, and to
allowing hauliers to continue
carrying freight between the UK
and member states without having
to apply for new permits.
The Irish Government has also
announced it is committed to
maintaining law enforcement
cooperation with Northern Ireland
in the event of a no deal scenario.
What?s more, the agreement
we?ve reached on the Common
Travel Area means movement
across the Irish border will remain
unaffected after Brexit.
We must also remember this is a
time of uncertainty for EU citizens
living in the UK, and for UK
citizens living in the EU, and we
will continue to do as much as
possible to reassure them.
;`Xcf^l\
We?ve already guaranteed EU
citizens in the UK will be able to
stay in the event of a no deal, and
we will continue our close
dialogue with community
representatives.
And now we?re encouraged to
see EU member states putting in
place similar protections for UK
nationals, such as those
announced last month by France
and Spain.
While we are putting in place
measures to mitigate the most
disruptive and damaging impacts
of no deal for businesses and
citizens, the best way to avoid this
scenario is for my colleagues to
support the deal we have
negotiated with the EU.
There is obviously division in
Parliament over the PM?s Brexit
trapped in the customs union for
ever against the wishes of the British people.?
But Eurosceptic Tory MPs who
vehemently oppose Mrs May?s plans
last night refused to back down.
Leading Brexiteer Jacob ReesMogg, chairman of the Tory backbench European Research Group,
said there was ?no sign at all? that
the tide of opinion in the Commons
was turning.
He said: ?I think it was based on
the false premise that when at home
in our constituencies, people would
tell us to back the deal.
?Instead, as far as I can tell, the
message is, stand ?rm against a bad
deal.?
Fellow Tory MP Sir Bill Cash said:
?My new year?s resolution ? not to
vote for the PM?s Withdrawal Agreement this January.
?Parliament exists to make our
laws. This agreement lets the 27 EU
countries impose laws on the UK as
never before in our history ? behind
closed doors with no transcript and
no UK at the meeting.?

to negotiate a deal with the EU
that goes much further than any
Brussels has agreed with another
country. MPs should recognise
that when they return to the House
and the certainty that this deal
delivers compared to the
alternative.
The British people voted to
leave the EU and this deal
guarantees we will do that in an
orderly way. What?s more, I?m
clear that people did not vote for
the disruption and uncertainty of
no deal.
The pace and intensity of the
work we are doing re?ects the
potential scale of this disruption
to people and businesses across
the UK that a no deal scenario
could bring.
Yet no deal will be far more
likely if MPs reject the
Government?s Brexit deal later this
month.
Moving forward, we need to
focus on building a more outwardlooking global trading nation. That
is best launched by supporting the
Government?s deal, which is the
most effective mitigation for the
concerns that many MPs have
over a no deal scenario. In the
meantime, we continue to prepare
for a no deal outcome.

Javid questions if boat migrants
crossing Channel are genuine
MIGRANTS crossing the English Channel are not ?genuine
asylum seekers?, Sajid Javid
suggested yesterday.
In a tough response to the
latest border crisis, the Home
Secretary questioned whether
those using small boats to reach
Britain?s shores had any right to
claim refugee status.
Mr Javid said migrants picked
up by UK border patrols faced
having asylum requests denied
as a deterrent to others.
A total of 539 people have
made the perilous sea journey
from France to try to enter the
UK this year, with 80 per cent of
the crossings coming in the past
three months.
During a visit to Dover yesterday, Mr Javid, who cut short
a holiday in South Africa to
tackle the surge in migrant boat
arrivals, said: ?A question has to
be asked: if you are a genuine
asylum seeker why have you not
sought asylum in the ?rst safe
country that you arrived in?
?France is not a country anyone would argue is not safe.?
Earlier this week, Mr Javid
HMC Searcher
arrives in Dover
to join the hunt
for migrants
announced that two Border
Force cutters including HMC
Searcher would join HMC
Vigilant to patrol UK territorial
waters off the South coast.
And last night it was reported
he had asked the Royal Navy for
help in dealing with the crisis.
Uncon?rmed reports claimed
that a navy vessel, HMS Mersey,
will set off from Portsmouth
this morning to be stationed off
the Kent coast. It will provide
cover while two more Border
Force patrol boats return from
the Mediterranean, which could
take as long as a fortnight.
Mr Javid promised to improve
co-operation between French
and British law enforcement
agencies. And he insisted the
Government was doing ?everything we can? to ensure migrants
are returned to France where
possible. But migrants will be
taken to a UK port if they are
picked up in British waters.
Mr Javid?s remarks sparked
criticism from opposition MPs
last night. Labour?s Stella
Creasy said: ?People will continue to die and be at the mercy
of traf?ckers when politicians
play tough for votes rather than
recognise why people ?ee.?
Lib Dem home affairs spokesman Ed Davey said: ?Many of
these people have ?ed war in
Syria or persecution in Iran. For
the Home Secretary to suggest
? on the basis of no evidence ?
they are not ?genuine? asylum
seekers is unacceptable.?
But Charlie Elphicke, MP for
Dover, said: ?Everyone knows
that refugees should claim asylum in the ?rst safe country
they arrive in, not the last.
?The message today was clear
? the French government must
do more to prevent these crossings taking place.?
A National Crime Agency
spokesman said that a 33-yearold Iranian national and a
24-year-old British man have
been arrested in Manchester on
suspicion of arranging the illegal movement of migrants
across the English Channel.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling
Blame greedy rail unions
for inf lation-busting fare
increases, says Grayling
9pDXZ\i?XccGfc`k`ZXc<[`kfi

MILITANT rail unions are to blame
for soaring fare rises, Chris Grayling
said yesterday.
Amid widespread anger at the
in?ation-busting increase imposed
yesterday, the Transport Secretary
said responsibility lay with the RMT,
Aslef and other unions.
He said: ?The reality is the fare
increases are higher than they
should be because the unions
demand ? with threats of national
strikes if they don?t get them ? higher
pay rises than anybody else.
?Typical pay rises are more than
three per cent and that?s what drives
the increases.?
Millions of commuters returned to
work after the Christmas break to
?nd ticket prices rose by an average
of 3.1 per cent, with many season
tickets up by more than �0.
The largest annual fare increase
since 2013 follows a year of timetable chaos, strike disruption,
overcrowding and the worst punctuality for 13 years.
Industry costs have been forced
up by in?ation-busting pay rises
after a string of crippling disputes.
;`j^iXZ\
In 2017, drivers union Aslef had a
massive �,000 pay rise following 18
months of disruption on Southern
Rail, where they can earn up to
�,000 a year for a four-day week.
And the RMT secured a two-year
pay agreement for 25,000 Network
Rail staff to protect them from
future in?ation and compulsory
redundancies and raise their London allowances by 29 per cent.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn yesterday branded this week?s fare
increase ?a disgrace?, saying the rail
network should work in the interests of everybody, not just for ?the
pro?ts of the few?.
But he blamed the Government
for the price hikes, prompting Mr
Grayling to highlight the close links
between the rail unions and Labour.
?These are the same unions that
fund that Labour Party,? Mr Grayling said.
Commuters yesterday expressed
fury at the fare rises.
Natalie Campbell, 23, from Tring,
Herts, said at London Bridge station: ?Considering I?m not on a great
salary, the fare rise is annoying.
?What?s worse is the trains aren?t
reliable ? my train was cancelled this
morning ? and it?s also a struggle to
get a seat most times.
?I don?t want fancier trains, I just
want to get to work on time.? Bruce
Demonstrators voice anger at the fare rise ? and Mr Grayling ? outside King?s Cross station in London yesterday. Other protests were held nationwide
Angry protests at stations across country
ANGRY commuters across the
country joined protests against
rail fare rises yesterday.
Around 50 people gathered
outside London?s King?s Cross
station from 7.30am. Demos were
also held in Manchester, Norwich,
Shef?eld and Walsall.
At King?s Cross, protesters
called for an end to privatisation
and a freeze on fares.

?What we?re saying to passengers

support of the protest and
cheered, before hurrying

Speaking outside Manchester
Victoria station, shadow transport
secretary Andy McDonald
said: ?They [passengers] have
had a terrible year.
?So I think they are rightly
aggrieved that they are seeing rail
fares increasing two-and-a-half
times faster than their wages have
increased since 2010.?
in 2019 is, soon you?re going to be

stripped and ungraded, with more
seats, better power outlets and

?I?m slipping away
but I?m not afraid?
9pDXibA\]]\i`\j
COURAGEOUS Billy Connolly
has ?lmed what could be his last
major TV appearance after saying
of his Parkinson?s battle: ?My life
is slipping away.?
The legendary Scottish funnyman is seen in the second part of
his BBC documentary series,
Made In Scotland, in re?ective
mood tomorrow night.
He declares: ?There is no denying it, I am 75. I have got Parkinson?s and I am at the wrong end of
the telescope of life. I am at the
point where the yesteryears mean
more than the yesterdays.?
Later in the programme as he
re?ects on his mortality, he adds:
?I?m near the end. I?m a damn
sight nearer the end than I am the
beginning. But it doesn?t frighten
me, it?s an adventure and it is
quite interesting to see myself slipping away.
?As bits slip off and leave me,
talents leave and attributes leave.
<e\i^p
?I don?t have the balance I used
to have, I don?t have the energy I
used to have. I can?t hear the way
I used to hear, I can?t see as good
as I used to. I can?t remember the
way I used to remember. And they
all came one at a time and they
just slipped away, thank you.
?It is like somebody is in
charge of you and they are saying: ?Right, I added all these
bits when you were a youth,
now it is time to subtract?.
?I can?t work my left hand
on the banjo. It is as if I am
being prepared for something. Some other adventure,
which is over the hill. I have got all
this stuff to lose ?rst and then I
will be on the shadowy side of the
hill, doing the next episode in
the spirit world.?
Connolly, nicknamed ?The Big
Yin,? was a Glasgow welder who
went on to become a global star
after an appearance on Michael
Parkinson?s BBC talk show in 1975,
which he says ?changed his life?.
Married to psychologist Pamela
Stephenson, he was diagnosed
with Parkinson?s in 2013.
He continued to tour for a few
years afterwards with his High
Horse stand-up show playing into
2017 but he says it got tougher and
Big Yin Billy in his documentary
Made in Scotland...?Yesteryears
mean more than yesterdays?
he could no longer stride around
on stage in his trademark style.
He says: ?I hadn?t stood anywhere since I got Parkinson?s and
I discovered that I got kind of
rooted to the spot and became
afraid to move.
?Instead of going all the way to
the front of the stage and prowling
along the front the way I used to
do, I stood where I was.?
Connolly, who has turned 76
since the show was ?lmed, says he
has cut back all work since his
Parkinson?s got worse.
But he adds: ?The fame remains
and I have never known anything
like it. People saying how nice it is
to see you and how good you are
looking. What is wrong with that??

FURIOUS MPs yesterday demanded
an end to rip-off petrol prices which
cost motorists �illion a day.
An all-party parliamentary group
accused greedy ?rms of ?chronic
opportunistic pro?teering? by plundering drivers? pockets despite a
slump in the cost of oil.
MPs say 37 million drivers have been
stumping up an average of 6p a litre
over the odds to ?ll up their cars since
the beginning of October ? generating
at least �0million extra pro?t.
They are urging the Government to
create a ?PumpWatch? independent
price protection body to halt the ?perpetual ?eecing? of Britain?s motorists.
The MPs have backed a petition
which has won the support of 14,000
people in just 10 days.
Scottish Tory MP Kirstene Hair, who
chairs the fair fuel for motorists and
hauliers parliamentary group, said:
?Drivers need reassurance 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
they pay the fairest price.
?That is where a price-monitoring
system would support them.?
Ex-Tory minister Robert Halfon
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

In the ?rst nine months of 2018, petrol retail pro?ts averaged 8p a litre
and 8.6p for diesel.
But pump prices hit a four-year high
in October and in the last quarter of
2018, petrol pro?ts rocketed to 13.27p
a litre and 11p for diesel.
In 11 weeks between October 3 and
December 21, the wholesale price of
diesel fell by 13 per cent, 16.5p, yet
pump prices dropped only three per
cent ? 4p.
During the same period, wholesale
petrol prices fell 14 per cent, 17p,
but pump prices dropped just seven
per cent ?9.5p.
Meanwhile oil prices plunged 36 per
cent in sterling from � to � per
barrel during that time.
Campaign group FairFuel UK, which
launched the petition, said last year,
in October alone, nearly �0million in
wholesale fuel price falls were held
back at the pumps.
Founder Howard Cox said: ?If gas,
electricity, water and telecoms get
price protection bodies, why shouldn?t
motorists have one too?
?Most of the pro?teering is at wholesale level, not by small independent
retailers, who also fall victims of the
greedy fuel supply chain.
?When oil prices rise and fall, millions of drivers have had absolutely no
idea what, subsequently, they will pay
at the pumps each time they ?ll up
their vehicles.
?There is no consistency, logic or
clarity to the way pump prices are calculated. It remains a closely guarded
secret in the fuel supply chain.?
Mr Cox claimed the Government
did not act because extra pro?ts had
generated a �0million VAT bonanza
for the Treasury.
He said: ?The perpetual ?eecing of
37 million UK drivers goes unchecked

Luke Bosdet of motoring body the

fuel retailers not passing on savings
that consumers could then spend is
something that needs to be investigated and regulated against.
?You have this tale of two cities situation ? big brand names disappearing

themselves by keeping prices arti?cially high. We?ve long said that the

extended to road fuels.
?The only way to get a fairer deal for
motorists is to have a regulator who
can say whether or not fuel prices are

A HERO doorman stabbed to
death as gatecrashers tried to
storm a VIP party took on nine
drunken thugs before he was killed,
it was revealed yesterday.
Tudor Simionov fought to save
his fellow bouncers from the mob
as they tried to invade the private
event at a �.5million property in
London?s exclusive Mayfair.
Mr Simionov was knifed in the
chest in Park Lane at about 5.30am
New Year?s Day.
The 33-year-old Romanian-born
security guard bled to death inside
a minute, according to a witness
who tried to save him.
Two other doormen, aged 29 and
37, and a 29-year-old woman were
also stabbed in the mayhem. Their
injuries are not life-threatening.
Yesterday police arrested a man
aged 26 on suspicion of murder.
Mr Simionov?s death is believed
to be the second murder of 2019 in
Britain. He was killed about an
hour after Charlotte Huggins, 33,
was found with fatal stab injuries
at her home in south London.
Last night Mr Simionov?s heartbroken girlfriend Madalina Anghel
said: ?Right now I can?t think
about him in the past. He was my
future husband and we came to
London from Romania for a better life. I can?t explain in words
how much pain I am in.

how he vainly tried to save Mr
Simionov?s life.
He said: ?There was a ?ght outside and he went to help. The security guards were getting beaten
up. He helped those guys.
?He had only been out there for
30 seconds when he was stabbed
in the middle of the chest.
?I saw him come back inside. I
saw him bleeding and I said, ?Come
here, come here,? and I took him
into the bathroom.
?His suit was covered in blood, it
was coming out of his chest. He
wasn?t wearing a protective vest.
?I grabbed a towel and held the
wound. He never said a word to
me. I think he was in shock. He
only survived for about a minute.
?He died in front of me with his
eyes open, staring at me.
?I then went into the hallway
and everything was smashed.
?They had managed to kick
down the door. There were other
people on the ?oor stabbed. There
was blood all over the ?oor.?
Mr Rose added: ?He is a hero. He
died as he was trying to save his
colleagues. He handled about nine
guys by himself.
?He was a nice guy. The nicest of
all the security guards there.?

By David Pilditch
MICHAEL Schumacher?s wife broke
her silence yesterday to assure fans
around the world that the motor racing legend was being well cared for.
Corinna Schumacher, 49, told how
the seven-times Formula One world
champion?s family are ?doing everything humanly possible? for the star,
who has not been seen in public since
a skiing accident five years ago.
In a rare public message to mark
Schumacher?s 50th birthday today,
Corinna said: ?You can be sure that
he is in the very best of hands and
that we are doing everything humanly
possible to help him.?
Jubilation

Of plans to mark the milestone, she
added on behalf of his family: ?Michael

and so are we.
?We want to remember and celebrate his victories, his records and his
jubilation.?
The family said an official Michael
Schumacher app will be released
today to enable fans to review all his
career victories and be ?a virtual
museum? of his successes.

won five titles, will celebrate his birthday today by launching a special
exhibition at its Maranello headquarters in northern Italy.

She said yesterday: ?Please understand if we are following Michael?s

Trendy ?low-carb? diets
labelled unhealthy...and
you may not lose weight
By Sarah O?Grady
Starting 2019 as she means to go on, J-Lo looks toned
CUTTING the carbs is damaging the nation?s health, diet
experts have claimed.
Confusion over ?bad? foods
such as bread, potatoes and
pasta is putting overweight
people off slimming.
And, as a result, they stay fat
and at risk of diabetes, cancer,
heart disease and other lifethreatening conditions.
New year resolutions to lose
weight with low-carb diets are
also likely to fail because they
are unsustainable.
Research found that the
diets left slimmers feeling hungry, bored and restricted with
options.
The popularity of low-carb
diets ? which include no bread,
rice or pasta ? has been fuelled
by celebrities such as Gwyneth
Paltrow, Kim Kardashian and
Jennifer Aniston.
As many as 81 per cent told
The Big Carb Survey they
were left puzzled over whether
carbohydrates should be the
main source of calories in a balanced diet.
The study found that diets
which drop starchy foods are
difficult to follow.
COMMENT

DR CARL BRANDT
Diabetes specialist
Irresponsible
Dieters blamed enjoying
their carbohydrates too much
(52 per cent), often feeling
hungry (46 per cent), feeling
limited in what they could eat
(40 per cent), and finding the
diet boring (30 per cent).
But two-thirds have heard
that low-carbohydrate diets
are better for weight loss, and
35 per cent believe it is impossible to lose weight without
cutting carbohydrates.
According to the poll, 30 per
cent think ?all carbohydrates
are bad? and 31 per cent have
heard that ?carbohydrates
aren?t essential for a healthy
balanced diet?.
However, there is growing
evidence that foods higher in
protein and carbohydrates
stave off hunger far better than
foods high in fat.
In addition, robust scientific
evidence from the World Health
Organisation, as well as UK
and US guidance, shows that
carbohydrates should be part
of a healthy balanced diet.

Dr Linda Papadopoulos said:
?It?s really important to ensure
that the changes you make fit

Her doctor warned her
that if she did not lose

Mrs Wren, of Chester-leStreet, County Durham, who
stands at 5ft 3in and now
weighs 9st 10lb, said:
?Throughout my adult life I

health but puts a massive
strain on our NHS.
?Advising overweight people
to follow low-carb diets, which
we know are unsustainable
and potentially cut out foods
essential to a healthy balanced
diet, is irresponsible.?
THOSE looking to start
2019 with a health kick
should not completely
write off carbs.
But they should
certainly be looking at
where they are coming
from. People generally
like carbs for their
benefits of quickly
feeling full and the fact
that they are quicker to
digest than protein.
In contrast to protein
which starts in the
stomach, the digestion
of carbs starts in the
mouth.
However, these
short-term wins are
offset against longterm negative effects
of consuming too
many carbs, such as
constipation and
weight gain.
There?s also a
dependency on the
endorphin kick
received when eating
substantial amounts of
?simple? carbs such as
sweets and fizzy
drinks. But complex
carbs with fibres are
found in the likes of
beans, pulses,
vegetables and nuts.
They provide an
improved, slower
digestion, a general
sense of wellbeing and
have also been proven
to reduce cancer risks.
They should make up
a significant portion of
the diet for someone
looking to lose weight
in a sustainable
manner.
If given the choice
between an egg at
breakfast or a glass of
orange squash ? both
of which may contain
the same calories ?
those that eat the egg
will feel fuller for
longer.
A fibre-rich diet is
the holy grail for
dieters, made up of
high protein and a
balance of complex
carbs and fat.

Sajid Javid was absolutely right to

also the case that if we don?t act now to

What would the likes of Stella Creasy

The only way to deal with this
situation is to make it absolutely clear
that anyone who makes their way to

them we would do just that. No doubt
they are also aware of the fact that

there?s no divorce payment. That
should focus the collective EU mind.
As for MPs, they must finally
understand that the Prime Minister
was being serious when she said it was

option would be unpalatable to the
people who voted Leave all those many

Year?s Day, the
embattled Transport Secretary Chris Grayling
tried to deliver an optimistic message about
the rail network: ?I want pass�
enger journeys to be as good as
they can be, punctual, reliable
and fairly priced.? But his words
will have been greeted with a
sarcastic laugh by train users.
For at the very moment that
Grayling extolled his vision of
a brave new world of travel,
brutal rises in fares came into
effect, bringing more misery for
passengers after months of
chaos on the system.
The fare increases average
3.1 per cent, far above the
annual rise in earnings for most
Britons. Although the hike is
the highest since 2013, it is just
the latest instalment in a long
pattern of fleecing the public.
VICTIMS: Passengers face huge hikes in train fares while
According to a study by the
Labour Party, average fares
have gone up by three times
the level of pay packets since
the start of this decade.

distract attention from this ripoff, the Government announced

the failure to curb the

their power to hold the public

exorbitant pay claims and in
defence of their outdated privileges. Their addiction to unjustified strikes belongs to the
grim world of the 1970s, but
they have been allowed to
act with impunity by supine
management and an enfeebled
government. But for all their
militant rhetoric about the
working-class struggle, they
are just as keen as the rail

ACH year, many of us
recycle New Year resolutions. Yes, they stay the
same ? eat and drink less,
exercise more, keep car/sock
drawer/kitchen cupboards
tidy, be nice etc.
But this year, there is a move
actually to having Recycling
Resolutions. In other words, we
have messed up the planet almost
irreversibly (which we already
knew). But while it was easy
to ignore warnings from selfinterested politicians, when Sir
David Attenborough stood up and
said the world has run out of time
to save itself, we listen. We must
try harder.
It was brought home to me how
the millennials ? who are extremely
conscientious about recycling ? will
be drowning in our rubbish in their
future, when I had a young student
to stay before Christmas. After
she left, she phoned to say she had
left her shampoo behind and could
she come and collect it?
I told her the bottle was nearly
empty. ?I know,? she said. ?But I
always refill it.?
Wow! That?s proper recycling.
Things are changing but not
quickly enough and we are not
helped by manufacturers, who are
guilty of excess packaging and
covering everything in plastic film
but aren?t even attempting to do
the basics like removing glittery
wrapping paper and cards from
their shelves. If we are already trying to do our bit, why can?t they?
Now ? or at least, in a few months,
not five or 10 years hence.
I was listening to a radio programme yesterday in which Professor Dilys Williams, a Director of
Sustainable Fashion, revealed that
we are buying four times as many
clothes as we were 10 years ago ?
but only wearing them for half the
time. Eight per cent of greenhouse
gases are caused by the fashion
manufacturing industry. Buy fewer
clothes of better quality, she said
and keep them for longer, adding
?I?m wearing vintage ? even though
I bought it new!?
Apparently, there?s a new movement amongst the young called
?post ownership?, in which instead
of buying, you hire, borrow or
share items ? maybe a special
outfit, fabulous coat, even your
home, or your car. I?m already
practising that ? I leant my friend
Di an Ascot hat and borrowed a
handbag from my granddaughter.
But what can each of us really do,
to help save the planet?

such lovely colours that I bulkbought for everyone on my list.
Some could barely hide their disappointment when they unwrapped

announced ?They?re bamboo! Not
plastic!? they were forced to show
solidarity with the cause.
Most of us are trying to do our bit
but I was depressed by the report
that over a billion Bags for Life are
sold each year. Still? Keep the bags
in the car! You need never buy
another bag! What am I saying? I?m
as guilty as anyone. Still, at least
now we all feel guilty, which is
progress and we apologise to the
checkout server. Perhaps what we
need is an alarm going off and a
neon arrow dropping down over
the checkout, every time someone
buys a bag. That would work. Or

'recycling incompatibility' is about
to become one of the major
grounds for divorce.
My husband is rubbish at recycling. He just about manages to put
newspapers in the blue bin and
twigs and leaves in the brown one
but that?s pretty much where his
sorting skills end. Show him an
empty food container, or a light
bulb and there is barely a pause
before it is lobbed into landfill ?
or the grey bin, as it is known
around here.
Collection day will often find me
upended, in the flip top, under the
sink, like a woman possessed. I?m
flinging items up in the air. ?This is
tin foil, you screw it up, tennis ball
size! Like this ? and put it in the
blue bin!? I yell. He rolls his eyes
and says ?Don?t get so wound up!?
and proceeds to scrape eggshells
into the very bin I?ve just cleared
and I?m headfirst into the flip
top again.
I seriously consider putting him
into landfill.
?The Great Pacific Garbage
Patch, 1000 miles off the coast of
California, is hundreds of miles
long,? I tell him.
?I?ve never, knowingly, thrown
anything into the Pacific!? he
insists.
You see what I?m up against? But
I plough on.
?Lots of stuff can be recycled
and we can do our bit and even
though it seems insignificant and
unimportant...?
I show him a leaflet. It?s called
Getting Your Recycling Right. ?So
which bin does that go in?? he says.
But I?ve gone a bit quiet because
what I?m reading is quite scary.
Why putting the wrong thing in
your recycling bin can: spoil a
whole lorry load of recycling; be
dangerous and unpleasant for
the people who sort it; waste
taxpayers money.
I like our bin men. They?re cheerful, helpful and they are nice to
dogs. I don?t want to be responsible
for something nasty in the bins,
that might hurt them. I must try
harder. And more importantly, so
must my husband.
I make him read the leaflet.
?You?ve been talking garbage,? he
says. ?You can?t put polystyrene
food packaging in the blue bin.?
I snatch it back. Crikey, he?s
right. I thought I knew it all but
turns out I wouldn?t even get
O level Recycling.
I phoned my recycling centre for
advice and spoke to a very helpful
lady, who says I?m not alone and
her husband ?leaves stuff on the
side for me to sort?.
She explains, also, that you can?t
recycle the clear, plastic film on the
top of food packaging.
New info includes ?wash, squash
and put the top back on? plastic
bottles ? and no items smaller than
four centimetres, including bottle
tops ? but you can put shredded
paper in the brown bin.
?The main problem is that
people don?t think they need to
wash and dry items before they
put them in recycling,? she says.
?They may not know that, while
a conveyor belt picks up metal
items with a magnet and sets aside
large paper sheets, the rest is
sorted by hand. But don?t forget,
you can take lots of things to your
recycling centre.?
R
IGHT! Old printers, a
microwave, broken garden
chairs, unwanted wooden
shelves and a vacuum cleaner
that won?t suck? A few days
after Christmas, we were off to
the Household Waste Recycling
Centre. It is a wonderful feeling to
empty the car of stuff you don?t
want ? and know that over 70 per
cent of it will be recycled.
And even my husband is beginning to enjoy putting things in the
right bins.
As he staggered out, with an armful of flattened cardboard, I said,
?So what do you think of it so far??
And guess what he answered?

T?S THAT special time of the year again, when you unwrap
a little box to find a jewel-coloured trinket lurking inside ?
yes, it?s time to open the new year diary. Apparently the use
of actual paper diaries is falling, due to digital versions on
phones and laptops, but seriously, there is nothing to beat
the traditional variety. And call me a Luddite, but unlike a
computerised models, a real one won?t break down.
It?s a joy opening a brand new diary: all those empty pages to
be filled with life events yet to be lived. Equally, closing the old
and full one can cause a pang: another year gone, another of
life?s books filled. I?m not talking about the full-on emotionfilled account of a life,
mind you, the sort that
people in public life
keep in order to publish
one day as their pension plan.
I?m talking about the

forthcoming dates and
events, everything from
a hairdresser appointment to a big family
wedding, to which you
can also add in the

sorry, hopeful romantics, met on a dating app, chatted for a bit, met for

It?s been getting worse and

no one wants to listen to in a

nadir. With multiple stabbings

almost entirely to discussing

A YOUNG student plunged 500ft
to her death on Ben Nevis ? the
second victim of a fatal tragedy
on Britain?s highest peak in the
space of a fortnight.
The 22-year-old lost her footing
and fell from around 1,000ft below
the summit on a climb with three
others on New Year?s Day.
John Stevenson, leader of the
Lochaber
Mountain
Rescue
Team, said that conditions at
the time had been ?very cold and
very icy?.
He added: ?Where she slipped,
there was an almost vertical
drop of 500ft.
?It is hard to say but she would
have stood little or no chance.
?It is a very rocky drop too. She
would have gone straight down.
?It would have been a horrific
fall to happen where it did. The
conditions are very icy and very
cold at the moment.?

Shocked
The Bristol University student
was with her friends when
they became stuck on the 4,411fthigh mountain?s ?ridge route? on
Carn Dearg.
It is understood the party had
reached the summit and were on
their way down.
Mr Stevenson said: ?The other
three ? I think two men and a
woman ? were stuck on the route
and were clearly very shocked.?
A coastguard search and
rescue helicopter stationed at
Inverness flew members of the
mountain rescue team to recover
the woman?s body and airlift her
friends to safety.
Mr Stevenson paid tribute to
the pilot who was faced with icy
conditions and snow flurries.
?The helicopter did a magnificent job,? he said.
?The cloud cleared enough to
allow it to get in ? but it was a
difficult job.? The tragedy comes
just over two weeks after Patrick
Boothroyd, 21, died on the mountain on December 16.
He
and
his
friend
Leo
Grabowski, 28, were scaling the
peak when a ledge of snow collapsed.
Mr Boothroyd, a Cardiff University student, suffered a fatal
head injury in the fall.
Disoriented and suffering from
broken bones, Mr Grabowski
managed to dial 999 and did
his best to save his friend. He
covered him with a survival bag
and huddled next to him, shielding him from the snow and wind.
They were rescued after an
hour but Mr Boothroyd could not
be saved.
Ben Nevis, seven miles away
from Fort William, attracts thousands of climbers and walkers to
its summit every year.
Fellow climber Heather Nicoll
believes she shared a hot drink
with the young woman and her
friends in a summit shelter shortly
before the tragedy. ?My heart
goes out to all involved and to
the family of the young lady who
has lost her life,? Ms Nicoll wrote
on Facebook.
A Bristol University spokeswoman said: ?It is with great
sadness that we can confirm that
on 1 January 2019 one of our
students died in an accident
whilst on a hiking trip to Ben
Nevis in Scotland.
?The student was part of a
larger group of students who had
organised this new year trip to
the Highlands.?
New Year?s Eve birthday teen killed in Ibiza car horror
The road to Portinatx in Ibiza where the 14-year-old boy was run over
A BRITISH 14-year-old has died in
Ibiza after being run over by a car.
Sources said the dead boy, named
locally as Dylan Hunt, was from
Wales and had just returned to Ibiza,
where he lives, following a family
Christmas break in the UK.
The teenager is believed to have
only celebrated his 14th birthday on
New Year?s Eve.
He had been picked up at the
airport and driven back to the spot
where his family had parked their car
near a relative?s house.
It is believed the boy was hit as he
helped transfer suitcases between
the two vehicles.
A source said several relatives
From Gerard Couzens in Madrid
including the youngster?s mum had
been with him at the time.
He is understood to have lived with
his family in the popular resort of
San Antonio.
The source added: ?They had just
returned from the UK and were
on their way to San Antonio where
they live.
?The lad that was killed was helping put suitcases in the car they?d
left parked near the spot where he
was hit.?
The tragedy happened around
10.30pm on Tuesday night.
The Spanish driver of the Ford
Fiesta which hit Dylan was travelling
with his family from Ibiza Town
towards Portinatx at the time and
after the crash tested negative for
alcohol and drugs.
Police sources said the youngster,
who has not officially been named,
was in the middle of the road when
he was hit and was not wearing a
reflective jacket.
A Civil Guard source said: ?He died
at the scene. The driver of the car
that hit him passed drink and drugs
tests.
?A full investigation will be carried
out but there is nothing at this stage
to indicate the driver was at fault in
any way.?

A
By Richard Barber
S Karen Marsden in ITV hit
Cold Feet, she is all too familiar with the ups and downs of
romance and relationships.
But for actress Hermione
Norris, who returns in a
new series of the show later this
month, a stable love life has been
easier to maintain than for her onscreen alter ego.
?There are people you have mad
passionate affairs with and people
who you marry,? she says. ?Marriage
is finding somebody who you can
raise a family with, grow old with and
who you want to come home to. It
sounds a bit of a passion killer, but it?s
true! It?s hard raising a family so you
need someone who you can trust to
do it with.?
The real-life Mr Norris is Simon
Wheeler, the son of General Sir Roger
Wheeler, a former Chief of the General
Staff, who was one of the writers on
crime drama Wire In The Blood (20022008), in which Hermione starred
with Robson Green.
Success
STYLISH: Hermione favours suits
She didn?t meet her husband until
she was in her thirties. ?I wasn?t yearning for marriage or motherhood ? I
loved my work,? she tells me. ?But
very soon after meeting Simon I knew
he was the one.?
As one of four children, Hermione
had always wanted a big family but
as she was 35 when she met Simon
that was never going to be an option.
They had their son Wilf, now 14, in
2004, and by the time she had her
daughter Hero, 11, three years later
she was 40. By then, she confesses,
?I was knackered?.
Of her children, she says: ?They are
my life?s greatest gift. Their childhood
is quite different from mine in terms
of material comforts. But certain
values hold good no matter your
upbringing. I think Cinderella?s

50-year career...Judy Turner
Katie Flynn
author Judy
Turner dies
AUTHOR Judy Turner, who
wrote under the pseudonyms
of Katie Flynn and Judith
Saxton, has died aged 82.
The best-selling author of
historical and romantic
fiction penned more than 90
books, selling more than
eight million copies.
Caroline Sheldon, her
literary agent, said: ?Writing
was her life and through her
talent to tell stories she
forged a remarkable career
spanning nearly 50 years.
?She will be much missed
by all who knew her.?
Her first novel writing as
Katie Flynn, A Liverpool
Lass, was published in 1993
and her novels under that
name have gone on to sell
5.5 million copies.
Born in Norwich in 1936,
Turner was encouraged to
write after she had a poem
published in Enid Blyton?s
Sunny Stories aged eight.
She continued to write
after she was diagnosed
with ME in 1996 and her
daughter Holly worked as
her assistant for 10 years.
For her latest two Katie
Flynn books published by
Century, Christmas at
Tuppenny Corner and A
Mother?s Love, Holly joined
her mother in the writing.

mother probably said it best: ?Have
courage and be kind?.?
The new series of Cold Feet begins
on Tuesday and Hermione couldn?t
be more pleased with the end result.
So how does she explain the sustained success of a comedy drama
that first aired in 1998?
?For some reason that none of us
will ever quite understand,? she
says, ?Cold Feet had an alchemy
from the word go that resonated
with the public.
?I have this theory that the show
is more about our audience than it
is about us. I think viewers watch it
and remember where they were at
that time in their life. And because
all the characters are spectacularly
flawed individuals, people watching at home can identify with at
least one of us. In a way, I think they
find it quite comforting.?
She?s 51 now and a very different
person from the woman who had
only just hit 30 when the first series
hit our TV screens.
?When I turned 50, it was a time
for reflection, and within that there
was huge gratitude and grief,? she
tells the latest issue of Good Housekeeping. ?You realise there are
things that are no longer available
to you. Doors have closed and you
don?t realise that until you?re there.
There is also a sense of real liberation and freedom.
?The maps are laid down and
there is a sense of satisfaction and
joy. I appreciate the sense of security as a woman.
It?s more of an
internal
journey and I find
the peace of
that hugely liberating. It?s a
fantastic time
moving beyond
50. It?s where it?s at, for me.
I have looked forward and grown
into myself.?
And that means she has very
decided views on the clothes she
looks best in. ?I?m not really a dress
person. I would rather wear a really
slick trouser suit. I think women?s
suits look really sexy. There?s something feminine about it. I like men?s
clothes really. Ellen DeGeneres
always has beautiful clothes. Whenever I go shopping I go to the men?s
department and think, ?I want
that,? ? beautiful suits. I think you
need more confidence to wear a
dress. I often feel silly in a dress.?
Before the four-and-a-half months
it took to film the new series of Cold
Feet, Norris was in front of the
cameras for four episodes of Luther,
which returned
to
our
TV
screens on New
Year?s Day.
?It was a real
joy to work with
Idris Elba ?
such a generous actor ? and
the hugely talented Ruth Wilson,?
she says.
?They say, of course, that he might
be the first black James Bond.
That?s certainly something I?d like
to see.?
Hermione has been plying her
trade for a quarter of a century now.
As a good-looking woman in a
notoriously fickle business, has she
ever had any problems with preda-
?Whenever I now go
shopping, I go to the
men?s department?
tory men? ?I haven?t, no,? she says,
firmly. ?But looking at how women
have been treated globally down the
years, I think the MeToo movement is one of the most important
and significant campaigns in my
lifetime.
?Mercifully, it?s never happened to
me but I know of women who have
suffered in that way and they have
my absolute support.
?I?m the mother of an 11-year-old
daughter. So I?m keenly aware of
understanding and appreciating
female vulnerability in young
women.?
Norris?s own biggest problem
growing up was her name. ?I spent
my childhood having to repeat my
Christian name and then having to
spell it,? she recalls. ?My mother?s
called Helen and, in the Greek myth,
she had a daughter called Hermione
so my father thought it would be a
good idea to give me that name.
Not for me, it wasn?t.
?Thank God for JK Rowling. People continued to take the mickey
until Harry Potter [and his sidekick
Hermione Granger] came along.?

Cuba?s national circus.
Artists danced and performed
acrobatic tricks during the Pope?s
weekly audience in the Paolo VI
Hall at the Vatican yesterday.
The Pope thanked the group for
lifting the audience?s spirits.
He said: ?With their show they
bring beauty.
?It is a beauty that takes so
much effort and training.
?Beauty always raises the heart,
makes us more good to all, leads
us to goodness, leads us to God.?

Circuba ? whose members are
aged between 19 and 30 ? are
performing in Rome this month.
Pope Francis, 82, used his
New Year message to highlight
the importance of a mother?s love.
Urging people to turn to the
Virgin Mary in times of difficulty,
he praised mothers for the
?heroism? they demonstrate
?in self-giving, strength
in compassion, wisdom
in meekness?.
He added: ?A world in which
maternal tenderness is dismissed
as mere sentiment may be rich
materially, but poor where the
future is concerned.?

DEAN Ford, the lead singer of
pop band Marmalade, has died at
the age of 72.
The Eye In The Sky hitmaker
passed away on New Year?s Day,
his daughter Tracey McAleeseGorman confirmed.
She said: ?He was an amazing
man, a gentle soul, extremely
talented musician and a great
father and pop pop to his only
grandchild Connor.
?His music was his life and will
now be his legacy for ever.?
Marmalade had a number of
top 10 hits in the 1960s and 1970s.
The band, from Glasgow, were
best known for reaching number
one in 1969 with their cover
version of The Beatles Ob-La-Di,
Ob-La-Da.
They had another 10 singles,
including Reflections of My Life
and Rainbow ? both of which
Ford wrote with bandmate Junior
Campbell.
Reflections of My Life also
earned them a top 10 hit in the
United States, with over two million copies sold across the world.
After his initial success Ford
tried his hand at going solo after
the band split in the 1970s.
When his solo album failed to
Dean Ford,
centre, with
fellow stars
from hit group
Marmalade
chart, Ford was subsequently
released by his record label.
He went on to battle alcohol
addiction and moved to Los
Angeles in 1979 in a doomed
attempt to revitalise his career.
He turned to music again by
appearing in small clubs and
open-mic venues.
Ford admitted at the time that
his royalties kept him financially
afloat.
He eventually turned to limou-
sine driving in LA where he ferried stars around including
Michael Jackson and Bob Dylan.
Last November, Ford returned
to music and released solo album
This Scottish Heart.
Following his death, fans rushed
online to pay tribute to the
musician. One wrote: ?Dean Ford
sleep peacefully darling man.?
Another added: ?Ob-La-Di, ObLa-Da goodbye to Dean Ford of
Marmalade.?

MOVING MEMOIRS REVEALED

My father, the reluctant war hero
Pictures: BNPS
By John Fitzpatrick
THE gripping memoirs of a Battle
of Britain and D-Day hero whose
family spent months believing he
was dead have come to light after
74 years.
Group Captain Bob Allen was
shot down over northern France in
July 1944 and captured at gunpoint
by the Germans.
His commanding officer wrote
in the decorated airman?s RAF
logbook ?killed while on operations? and a letter of condolence
was even sent to his wife Alice.
In fact Gp Capt Allen was taken
to ?Great Escape? camp Stalag
Luft III. But it was not until three
months later he was able to send a
postcard to his wife with the words
?fit and well darling?. He refused to
talk about his war-time experiences
for decades afterwards.
He wrote down his memoirs in
the third person as a way of
distancing himself from the horrors
he encountered. He also changed
the names and locations of battles
for the same reason.
Following his death 11 years ago,
his daughter Suzanne CampbellJones, a documentary maker
from Bath, set about working on
the memoirs.
Clockwise from

The moving contents have now
been published for the first time in
a new book, No Ordinary Pilot.
Mrs Campbell-Jones, 76, said:
?My father presented us with a
copy of his memoir, but he would
not talk about it.
?When we read his memoir we
realised that he had changed all the
names and places and invented
new ones for them.
?He also changed his own name
and wrote the whole account in
the third person, so maybe it had
the effect of distancing himself
from the action.
?My father was not someone
renowned for derring-do, he was a
regular guy who during war time
was pitched into some rather
extraordinary experiences. I hope
his great grandchildren will be able
to read his story and understand
what he went through.?
Gp Capt Allen, from Medway,
Kent, was 19 when he left his
reserved occupation as a chemist
to sign up for service in 1940.
Within six months of joining up
he was part of No 1 Squadron, flying Hurricanes in dogfights with
the Luftwaffe during the Battle of
Britain. He then spent two years
in west Africa fighting Germany?s
Vichy French allies and earned a
Distinguished Flying Cross for
his efforts flying unarmed photoreconnaissance missions to protect
southern Atlantic shipping lines.
Returning home at Christmas
1942, he retrained as a fighterbomber pilot flying Typhoons and
was one of the first over the
Normandy beaches on D-Day.
But on July 25, 1944, Gp Capt
Allen was shot down over enemy
lines near Thury-Harcourt in
Normandy.
He baled out his aircraft and
landed barefoot in a cornfield in
an area swarming with enemy
soldiers. He wrote of the episode in
the third person: ?At 5,000ft he was
about to start firing his cannon
before releasing his rockets when
there was a loud thump from the
tail. His plane began to yaw out of
control. He had been hit. He struggled to pull his aircraft up but it
continued to plunge.
?A slipstream rushed through the
cockpit from side to side, pinning
him hard back against the seat, so
he could hardly reach the control
column. All hope of saving the aircraft was lost. He released the pin
of his safety harness so he could get
free of the aircraft.
?The buffeting slipstream sucked
him out. His aircraft went on crashing downwards. He felt for the
ripcord on his parachute. Fast
approaching the fields of enemy-
held Normandy, Bob looked for
somewhere to hide.
?Landing with some force in a
cornfield that had just been cut,
the breath knocked out of him. And
now there was the sound of gunfire.
?Running across the field came a
number of German soldiers firing
at him. He reluctantly decided he
would have to surrender.?
Gp Capt Allen carried on serving
in the RAF after the war, then
worked for the Ministry of Agriculture. He died aged 88 in 2008.
His daughter added: ?Like so
many people from his generation
he did not see himself as a hero but
someone doing his duty.?

I fished up a live WW2 bomb
Pictures: GLENN GALLAGHER/SWNS
By Sarah Ward
By John Fitzpatrick
A FISHERMAN netted a Second World
War depth charge which nearly capsized
his boat ? and was still packed with live
explosives.
Glenn Gallagher, 44, was fishing off the
coast of Largs, North Ayrshire, days
before Christmas when he felt an unusually heavy object tugging at the nets.
Initially mistaking it for a boiler, the
dad-of-four noticed a ?horrific? smell of
explosives, as he landed what turned out
to be a Mark VII depth charge on the
deck of his boat, The Two Boys.
Glenn said: ?When we pulled it out,
the weight nearly tipped us over.
?The bottom of the boat went right
over, we nearly capsized.
ROLLS-ROYCE has
announced plans to
develop the world?s
fastest electric plane at
its factory in Bristol.
A team of engineers,
designers and data
specialists will make
a new zero-emission
plane which they hope
will reach speeds of
more than 300mph,
making it the fastest
electric plane in
the world.
The project is part of
Rolls Royce?s ACCEL
initiative, partly funded
by the government,
which aims to support
the electrification of
the aviation industry.
The plane is
scheduled to make its
first flight in 2020.
Matheu Parr, ACCEL
project manager for
Rolls-Royce, said: ?This
plane will be powered
by a state-of-the-art
electrical system and
the most powerful
battery ever built
for flight.
?In the year ahead,
we?re going to
demonstrate its abilities
in demanding test
environments.
?Then we will be going
for gold in 2020 from a
landing strip on the
Welsh coastline.?
Glenn,

says the

capsized
his boat,

Emergency
?I thought it was some sort of boiler at
first and we got a big large boulder which
hit the deck along with the depth
charge.
?I am just glad it never went off.?
The depth bomb was picked up on
December 20, sparking a huge emergency response from the Ministry of
Defence explosives unit.
A 700-metre exclusion zone was placed
around Glenn?s vessel and the depth
charge was taken a mile from the coast
and placed in 27 metres of water.
It was safely detonated the next
morning.
Glenn said: ?It was a weird smell
but when you smell it you know it?s
Electric
plane bid
by Rolls
explosives. It?s like a mixture of paint
and bleach ? it?s ghastly.?
Glenn, who was on board with crewman Ross Dunn, said: ?We have had a
few like this during my 29 years at sea.
?Most places we get stuff like that are
around the Clyde as there was an ammunition dump south of Cumbrae.?
A Royal Navy spokesman said: ?We
can confirm that Royal Navy clearance
divers from Northern Diving Group,
based at HM Naval Base Clyde, were
called to assist.
?The team examined the item and it
was found to be a Mark VII World War
Two depth charge.
?The team took the item back to sea
and carried out a controlled explosion.?

SURGEON WHO OPERATED
FROM 20 MILES AWAY
EXCLUSIVE
By James Murray
S
URGEON Tejas Patel has
just performed an amazing
Christmas feat in the field
of heart surgery. Some say
that by rights he should
now be as well known as
the transplant pioneer Christiaan
Barnard or this country?s greatest
heart and lung transplant surgeon
Sir Magdi Yacoub.
But because Dr Patel works in
India, his groundbreaking achievement has been largely overlooked,
by a Western-focused medical
profession.
Last month he operated on Hema
Thakar, a 52-year-old heart attack
victim, while he was 20 miles away
in a Hindu temple using the very
latest in robot medical technology.
The fact that he was not present
in the operating theatre while
remotely guiding a wire inside
Hema?s body is a global medical
first, which has gone largely unreported outside India.
Now, however, Dr Patel, 55, has
given his first detailed account of
the breakthrough which could signal a revolution in long-distance
operations in the coming decades.
In
November
schoolteacher
Hema was felled by a heart attack
in Gujarat, a region north of Mumbai which borders Pakistan.
She was assessed conventionally
and it was decided that the mother
of two grown-up children urgently
needed a stent ? a tiny expandable
coil made of metal mesh designed
to improve blood flow.
In the normal way an angioplasty
was arranged, a wire was inserted
into her wrist and moved up to
her heart where the blockage
which had caused the heart attack
was stented.
It was noted that she also had a
?critical? block in her main artery.
Dr Patel and his team decided to
carry out that procedure from long
distance following intensive testing
of the most up-to-date technology
in the world.
Indian doctor Tejas Patel pulled off a world ?rst
last month when he used a remote-controlled
robotic arm to insert a stent into a patient
Dr Tejas Patel,
inset right,
performing the
operation
remotely
H
O
N December 5 Hema ? who
had given special consent
to the surgery after discussions with Dr Patel and his team ?
went along to the Apex Heart Institute at Ahmedabad while he took
up his operating position in the
conference room of the Akshardham Temple, Gandhinagar, some
20 miles away.
Dr Patel could easily have gone
to the institute to operate on the
woman using a robotic arm but
he wanted to put into practice
his determination to pioneer longdistance heart surgery and make
medical history.
As in the previous operation a
small incision was made in the
woman?s wrist and the wire containing the stent was inserted into
one of her arteries by one of
Dr Patel?s senior cardiologists,
Dr Sanjay Shah.
He remained at Hema?s side
throughout the procedure but had
no need to intervene at any point.
At the temple Dr Patel sat down
in front of two computer screens
and gently guided the wire coming
from the robotic arm to the affected area of the heart using hand
and everyone else for making sure
it all went as they planned.?
She adds: ?We are really happy
for her. She would now like to go
trekking in Ladakh [a mountainous region in northern India
renowned for its natural beauty].
?I hope she will fit the criteria
soon and Dr Tejas Patel will give
her permission to fulfil her desire
for adventure.?
Dr Patel says many valuable lessons had been learned from Hema?s
procedure, which will help lead to
improved technology in the future.
Speaking from his institute, he
says: ?Eventually, they want to
reduce the size of the controls and
the screen so that doctors can have
everything in a suitcase.
?Eventually this means surgeons
can be mobile and operate from
anywhere as long as there are the
right internet connections to the
operating theatre.
?This will have tremendous
advantages, particularly in Third
World countries where there are
fewer specialists.
?I?m experienced enough to take
up this technology, develop it
and put it in perspective for
the use and benefit of people at large.
?I want to leave my
footprints.
People
should
remember
me and my partner
Dr Sanjay for doing
something
good
for humanity.
?That is the reason we took up
this challenge.
?I think it will be
used a lot more in
three to five years
time.?
The sheer vastness of
India means that often
heart patients who are unwell,
and at risk of heart attacks, have to
travel hundreds of miles to treatment centres or doctors have to
travel long distances to see them.
Dr Patel hopes the success of the
surgical experiment will lead to
major changes in heart treatment
in India and around the world.
Patient Hema Thakar
and, right, the operating
team applauding the
successful outcome
controls. Special efforts were made
to get a fast and reliable internet
connection in order to eliminate
the risk of a break in the link.
Even though he had Hindu
religious leaders and political
dignitaries watching over his shoulder, along with a platoon of Indian
journalists, Dr Patel was unfazed
during the operation.
?If things go wrong, things can
really go nasty,? he said. ?So I had
pressure. But once I sat in the chair
I felt I was sitting in the lap of God
and I was relieved.
?It went very smoothly. It took
maybe five or seven minutes, everything went well. I?m overwhelmed,
speechless. The patient is perfect,
no problems. The patient?s heart
beat is fine, blood pressure is fine?
hale and hearty.?
Hema was released from the
heart hospital the following day,
feeling on top of the world and is
now back at home with her husband Bharat, 58.
Her daughter Dayna Patel, 31,
said yesterday: ?She is back to normal. We had been so worried about
her. When Dr Patel explained he
would be 32 kilometres away we
were worried at first.
?We wanted to know what would
happen if the computer link went
down but he reassured us it would
be all right because the cardiologist would take over if there was a
problem with the internet. I am
very proud of my mother for going
through with the procedure. She
kept very calm, the model patient.
Although she was very worried she
felt she was in very good hands.
?The change in my mother is fantastic. She has no pain and she can
walk far without getting tired.
?She has to go for another check
up, but she is very happy with her
health so I think that will be fine.
?My mother was the first but
there will be many more operations
like this in the future I?m sure
because my mother has proved it is
possible to do this type of medical
procedure from a long way away.
?She is very grateful to Dr Patel
E sees no reason for surgeons not to operate on
patients from 1,000 miles
away as long as there is a cardiologist in theatre to step in if there is
an internet failure.
?We have just started on this,?
says Dr Patel.
?The technology comes from the
United States but we are showing
how it can be used.
?I am so proud that this was done
for the first time in India. I?m humbled to be part of this progression.
?My hope is that hundreds, if not
thousands of people, will benefit in
the years ahead from the work that
we have done.
?I can see it being particularly
helpful in Third World countries
but it should also be used in developed countries.?
And he has not ruled out the
possibility that one day he or a
member of his team could do long
distance heart surgery on someone
in the UK from a control centre
in India.
?We are a long way from that but
I would think that will be possible
at some time,? he says.
?The future for heart patients is
very good, very hopeful.?

would plug gap in finances
Fine patients

NHS is sunk
Hunt?s empty promises on
doctors gives us the needle
Card-sharp approach will
get rid of time wasters
EVERYONE should have to give a
debit card to their GP on
registering. This could then be
charged if they didn?t turn up.

Missing trucker fees take
their toll on UK?s economy
I WAS amazed to read foreign
truckers have accrued toll fees of
�illion. I?d have thought they
would be expected to pay at the
crossing point like everyone else
and not, as it appears, to have a
credit facility as I inferred from
the article (?Fury over the foreign
truckers who dodged � in
crossing tolls?, January 1).
A way to cure this scandal would
be to prevent operators of these
trucks setting foot on UK soil until
the debt has been resolved or seize
vehicles to prevent them returning
home until the debt is paid.
In the aviation industry, the
airport authorities seize aircraft in
similar circumstances if landing
fees/ground handling fees go unpaid
and won?t release the aircraft until
overdue fees are settled. Simple.
Peter Wood,
Basingstoke, Hants
Soft-touch British drivers
stump up for non-payers
WHEN they replaced manned toll
positions with the automated
system, the fares were increased.
It only took me a few seconds to
realise why. It was obvious that
quite a few foreign trucks/cars
would probably not bother to pay.
And it further occurred to me it
would prove far too costly and
time-consuming for operators to
chase offenders all over Europe.
In effect, the British motorists
and truckers are paying for
non-payers via increased tolls. Yet
TODAY: Thursday
January 3, 2019
On this day
Letter of the day
WE can help the NHS by charging
patients who cost the system.
Those people who fail to keep GP
or hospital appointments should be
fined, say �. That would have two
benefits. Millions of pounds for the
NHS and those patients would be
less likely to ?reoffend?.
Then there are those who need
treatment because of their own
behaviour or lifestyle; smokers,
drug takers, drunks and the obese.
Of course they must receive
treatment but should be required
to pay towards the cost rather like
people who claim on an insurance
policy have to pay an excess.
John Longworth,
Ware, Herts
IT takes about seven years to
become a doctor and today there is
a need for an additional 6,000.
When Jeremy Hunt became
Health Secretary in 2010 he boasted
for years of training enough doctors
for the NHS?s needs.
Whatever happened to that
training programme he installed or
was it just hot air?
He has been promoted to Foreign
Secretary and he is now promising
a Brexit on a par with Singapore, a
low-tax progressive country.
Beware his promises.

SCANDAL: No excuse for patients not turning up to see GP
another case where our own are
being ripped off. Are we honestly
expected to believe no one thought
this would happen?
Michael Elby,
Colchester, Essex
We?re such fuels for not
copying American system
ANYONE who has rented a car in
the US will know one has to pay up
front for fuel before you can start
filling your tank (?How 99% of fuel
thieves can get away scot-free?,
December 28).
You have to go to the cash desk
and put money or credit/debit card
in the hands of the attendant, who
will then set the pump to deliver
the exact amount of fuel paid for.
If you are unsure how much you
need to pay to fill up the tank, you
are required to overpay and get the
excess back on completion.
There does not seem to be any
problem with this method and
nobody gets away without paying.
Peter Smith,

Rise in internet buying
delivers another problem
Your article on the demise of the
high street is thought-provoking
(?We must rally round to save the
UK?s high streets?, January 2).
Councils who are creating clean
air zones by banning cars from the
IT is nothing short of scandalous that there
were 15 million ?no shows? for GP and hospital
appointments last year (?15m patients fail
to turn up for their GP?, January 2).
There is absolutely no excuse for not calling
to cancel a scheduled appointment and
those who fail to do so should be fined ?
and not a paltry �as has been suggested ?
but �.
And they should not be given a new
appointment until that penalty has been paid.
The NHS is severely strapped for cash
and a fine of � for each of those missed
appointments would bring in a much-needed
�5million.
Additionally, the amount we pay in national
insurance towards our health care is way too
little and it is time to bring in a flat � fee
for every GP or hospital appointment.

is eastenders right to bring in trendy new gay bar?
Well done to
Kate Oates for
heralding in a
new era in soapland with
the introduction of a gay
bar on Albert Square
(?EastEnders gets gay
bar as it ?champions
diversity??, January 2).
She mentions that the
new bar will be a hip
place for both straight
and gay people and it?s
about time EastEnders
Yes
and other soaps for that
matter, moved into the
21st century.
Gay bars are part and
parcel of everyday life
and feature throughout
our society, so it?s good
this diverse element
should be extended to
our TV shows. Here?s
hoping some decent
plots are forthcoming.

As a

can?t help but wonder if
such programmes should

and spare us all the nods

When I watch
EastEnders or
Coronation Street, I just
want to see an ordinary
boozer where ?ordinary?
people in the show go for
a quiet pint after work,
just like in real life.
Soaps are supposed to
be inhabited by average
working men and women
doing average stuff so
why not just stick with a
traditional, old-fashioned
pub so everyone knows
where they stand.

We?re trying

not fix world,
Cheryl tells
her critics
Pictures: bbc
By Paul Rodger
ATTACKS on staff at a
school where teachers
walked out in protest
have almost doubled in
the past year, it has been
revealed.
Eleven teachers
refused to work at
Kaimes school in
Edinburgh after being
subjected to 97 incidents
of violent abuse.
Four of the attacks
resulted in hospital
treatment and police
were called out seven
times to deal with
attacks.
The NASUWT union
members refused to
teach eight pupils in
October but returned
after 17 days.
Figures obtained by a
freedom of information
request show that the
number of attacks on
staff at the school has
risen sharply.
In 2017 staff faced 53
violent incidents with
three people requiring
hospital treatment.
Teachers were hurt
30 times in 2016.
NASUWT general
secretary Chris Keates
said: ?Teachers are
entitled to a safe
workplace and pupils are
entitled to learn in an
environment free from
violence and disruption.?
By Craig Simpson
CHERYL has urged viewers of
her new TV talent show to cut
the criticism and enjoy the
entertainment instead.
The former Girls Aloud singer
said performers who left
themselves open to criticism
from the public or TV judges
were trying to entertain, not
change the world.
Speaking ahead of her new
BBC One talent show, The
Greatest Dancer, Cheryl said
she does not care about the
?noise? surrounding top talent,
and focuses on the performers?
passion for
entertaining
the audience.
Cheryl, 35,
who has endured criticism for
recent TV appearances, said: ?It
makes me sad that we really put
a lot of focus on to criticism.
Just enjoy.
?It?s entertainment, we?re not
trying to revolutionise the
world. People are just trying to
entertain you for an hour with
their talent, with their skill, with
their passion.
?I?m just looking forward to
watching people shine for an
hour. I don?t care what noise
is happening.?
Cheryl is a dance captain on
the show, alongside Strictly
Come Dancing?s Oti Mabuse
and Broadway star Matthew
Morrison. The hosts are Jordan
Banjo and Alesha Dixon.
Cheryl has a mentoring role
but will not vote ? the audience
alone decides which acts stay.
Episode one of the show will
see various acts audition,
including a solo dancer, Ellie.
The TV talent show is the first
partnership between Simon
Cowell?s Syco company and
the BBC.
The first episode of The
Greatest Dancer is on Saturday
at 8pm.

Marine biologist Ms James
added: ?We showed seagrass
beds were extremely effective
at holding sediment in place.
?Especially so in combination
with calcifying algae that
create their own sand.
?A foreshore with healthy
seagrass appears a sustainable
way of combating erosion.?
However, global losses of the
plant ? due to development,
pollution and invasive species
? have been estimated at seven
per cent each year since 1990.
The findings were confirmed
in tests along Mexico?s Yucatan
Peninsula, reports BioScience.

Page, 46, pleaded
guilty at Bristol

that after pulling

he ?cuffed? her about
the head when she was
hysterical and dragged
her by her clothes to get
her home.
He received a

the drama and she had

How to make and KEEP
new year resolutions
I
t?s the beginning of
January. But instead of
leaping out of bed, ready
to face the new year,
you?re lying under the
covers feeling exhausted,
hungover and bloated after a
month of festive parties.
It?s a familiar scene up and
down the country. So it?s no
surprise that two-thirds of us
decide to make new year
resolutions in a bid to change
our ways.
However, despite our
determination to do everything
from lose weight and cut back
on booze to go vegan or take up
exercise, research has shown
almost 80 per cent of us fail to
stick to our resolutions.
But why is this? And more
importantly, how can you make
these changes last?
Determined to turn over a new leaf and not go back to old
habits soon after? You?re not alone. MICHELE O?CONNOR
asks the experts how to make those changes last
Picture: GETTY
FOOD FOR
THOUGHT:
It helps to
have a good
reason to
make life
changes
4 MAKE SMALL CHANGES
Aiming to become a sugarfree, teetotal vegan overnight
would be daunting for anyone.
So be realistic about what you
can achieve. Focusing on too
many different areas at the same
time can mean you don?t have
the energy or dedication to
make lasting changes.
?Small changes are more
achievable than drastic
resolutions and take between
three and six weeks to become a
habit,? says Dr Patricia MacNair,
co-author of Change Your Life
One Day At A Time (Modern
Books, �.99).
For instance, switch from a
sugary breakfast cereal to
porridge or drink water instead
of fizzy drinks during the week.
1FIND A GOOD REASON
?We often decide what we
want to achieve without
considering why. And if we do,
it?s often for the wrong reason,?
says life coach Angela Cox.
?You might decide your goal is
to lose weight because you feel
frumpy or want to wear a size 12.
These are logical reasons but
they aren?t strong enough to get
you out of bed on a cold Monday
morning to do a workout.
?Find a reason that puts fire in
your belly. If you want to run a
marathon, engage with a charity
that tugs on your heart strings.
If you want to lose weight, do it
to be a more active parent.?
5 KEEP A RECORD
Keeping a note of your
progress will help you stay on
track. So if you?re trying to lose
weight, write down a food diary.
If your aim is to reduce your
overdraft, keep a note of your
finances. Or if you want to get
fit, draw up a timetable of when
you plan to exercise.
Professor Wiseman also
suggests writing down a list of
reasons why life will be better
once your goals are achieved
and giving yourself small
rewards to keep up motivation
levels.
2 BE SPECIFIC
Goals that don?t give you
anything specific to work
towards usually fail, say experts.
For instance, it?s much easier to
follow a plan that says ?give up
sugar for eight weeks? rather
than ?lose some weight?.
Be as specific as you can, for
example committing to go for a
30-minute run on Tuesdays and
Thursdays or drinking 1.5 litres
of water daily for the next four
weeks.
3
old habits creep back in, treat
slips as a temporary setback
rather than a reason to give up
altogether.
?If you raid the biscuit tin,
don?t think ?that?s it? and give
up. Start again the next day.?
6 SHARE YOUR GOALS
Support from friends and
family can help you stick to your
goals and if you can persuade
them to join in, that?s even
better.
A report from fitness social
network Strava found exercising
with friends could increase
your chances of being active
by 22 per cent while joining
a sports club could make you
46 per cent more likely to
remain active.
DON?T GIVE UP
Psychologist Professor
Richard Wiseman, from the
University of Hertfordshire,
carried out research into
keeping resolutions. The
study of 5,000 people found
those with a ?fatalistic attitude?
were less likely to succeed. The
key, says Professor Wiseman, is
persistence. He advises that if
7 RECOGNISE TRIGGERS
It?s vital to be aware of what
encourages your bad habits. ?It
could be as simple as not having
biscuits in the house so you?re
not tempted, or understanding
the stress triggers that make
you reach for a cigarette,? says
Professor Wiseman.
Instead, create new triggers
that prompt healthier habits.
For instance, when the evening
news starts, it?s time to set off
for a 30-minute walk.
8 DO WHAT YOU LOVE
A recent report in the
scientific journal Personality
And Social Psychology Bulletin
found that no matter what your
resolution, the enjoyment factor
was what mattered most.
When the participants in the
study got immediate rewards
from their new habits, they were
more likely to stick to them.
So if you want to exercise but
hate the gym, find an alternative
you do enjoy.
It might be a team sport, an
outdoor boot camp or sweating
in your front room to an online
fitness video.
FORGET ABOUT
9 ?SHOULDS?
Think about your motivation for
why you are making each
resolution. ?Are your resolutions
something you actually want to
achieve? Or did you set them
because you felt you had to??
asks mindfulness and NLP
coach Julie Provino.
?If your heart?s not in it, you?re
not going to be committed
enough to see it through.?
10 MAKE A PLAN
?You wouldn?t set off on a
journey without checking your
route first,? says Angela. ?It?s
the same with resolutions.
?Let?s say you want to do a
triathlon.
?Taking the time to ask
yourself some key questions will
give you confidence and ensure
you don?t fall at the first hurdle.
?For example, why do you
want to achieve this goal? How
much time will you need to
commit each week?
?How will you fit it into your
schedule? Who can help you?
How will you motivate yourself
when the going gets tough?
?Having some clarity over how
you will make it happen from
the outset will make the whole
thing easier.?

In 1980, scientists were able to prove that
snails have a unique protein (that is found
abundantly in these animals) that allows
them to regenerate, rebuild and heal
damage to their shells or cuts instantly!
Many inhabitants of Crete consume
snails as part of their daily diet and it is
widely believed that this had contributed
to a statistically low incidence of Arthritis.

Most spa facials include massage
as it can help smooth lines and
restore a natural glow.
Like a gentle workout for the
face, it will also ease muscle
tension, soothe eye strain and
banish puffiness.
Try this simple facial massage.
Apply a few drops of facial oil
and massage gently in small
circular movements around the
eyes, 10 circles clockwise, then 10
anti-clockwise. This will help
banish puffiness and under-eye
bags. Next, massage the brow
bone by pinching with one finger

glowing.
olive oils, while lemon juice or apple
cider vinegar is good for oily skin.
l For all skin types: This simple mask
soothes and softens skin. Mix
oatmeal, yogurt and honey in
equal quantities. Yogurt
contains exfoliating lactic
acid, oatmeal has antiinflammatory properties and
honey is antibacterial and
rich in antioxidants.
SKIN SMOOTHER
Most spa days involve
exfoliation, which is a must for
smooth, glowing skin. Yet
there?s no need to buy
expensive products.
Instead, it?s easy to make
your own exfoliator using
ingredients from your kitchen.
Facial scrub: Blend an avocado,
which is rich in moisturising
fatty acids and nourishing
vitamins, with a couple of
teaspoons of yogurt, a natural
exfoliator. Apply a thick layer over
your face, avoiding the eyes. Leave
for at least 30 minutes, then gently
massage off using a damp cloth.
Body scrub: Mix half a cup of sea salt
with 3tbsp almond, olive or grape
seed oil and massage over skin in
circular motions.
Rinse off in the shower and follow
with your favourite body lotion.
MAKE A MASK
A homemade face mask can do
wonders for the skin, boosting
radiance and hydration as well as
l For dry skin: Mix a mashed
avocado with 2tbsp plain
yogurt, 1tbsp olive oil and
1tbsp honey and apply to skin.

avocado and olive oil moisturise

softening fine lines and minimising
pores. They?re fun to make, cheap
and can be as effective as shopbought masks. Don?t worry too
much about proportions, just avoid
any ingredients you are sensitive to.
All masks should be left on for
10 minutes, then rinsed off.
Normal skin types benefit from egg
white or dairy ingredients such as
milk or yogurt. Dry complexions
will soak up coconut, avocado and
Time to pamper
Those little extra touches that
make all the difference...
l Before you start your treatments,
unwind with a cup of herbal tea.
Lemon and ginger is ideal if you?ve
been feeling under the weather.
Sit for half an hour, without your
phone, so you can relax.
l For oily skin: Mix unsweetened
natural yogurt with a stiffly beaten
egg white to form a smooth paste.
Add 1tsp fresh lemon juice and
apply to skin. The tightening
properties of albumen in egg white
soften and firms the skin while the
lemon reduces oil production.
l Pop your robe and towels in
the dryer for 10 minutes so they
are warm and fluffy.
l For the eyes: Make some green tea
and chill in the fridge. When cold,
soak a couple of cotton pads in the
tea and place over your eyes. The
caffeine shrinks blood vessels,
reducing puffiness, and the
antioxidants tackle inflammation.
l The right background music will
help create a calming atmosphere
so choose something you find
relaxing.
l Jazz up a jug of water with
slices of fruit and chill in the
fridge to sip throughout the day.

consult your GP. For more of

M
ENTION
Shakespeare?s
Macbeth and I?m
immediately
transported back
to my school
days. Not because it had a
considerable impact on me but
because a hardback copy had a
considerable impact on the head
of Gary West, who sat in front of me
in English lessons.
I can even remember our
teacher?s words as, beetroot-faced
with rage, he stormed up to Gary?s
desk, raised the tome aloft and
brought it down on my hapless
classmate?s cranium with an
almighty thwack.
?You asinine fool!? he shrieked.
?You?ve been asking for that for
FIVE YEARS!!!?
Ah, yes, school in the 1970s.
Mike Ward
previews
tonight?s TV
Happy, innocent days?
However we?re getting somewhat
ahead of ourselves here, because
the new living history series I want
to tell you about, BACK IN TIME
FOR SCHOOL (BBC2, 8pm), in
which modern-day students sample
the school life of previous
generations, begins by recreating
the classroom experiences of 1895.
Experiences, that is, such as
having your left hand strapped to
your chair if the teacher catches
you trying to write with it. Yes,
really. Left-handedness implied you
were aligned with the devil.
Back In Time For School, hosted
by Sara Cox (right) and historian
Polly Russell, is made by the same
team who brought us Back In Time
for various other things (Dinner,
Christmas, The Factory etc).
Yet while it seems to have
abandoned any attempt to
replicate the clever twofold
meaning of the original show?s title
(Back In Time For Dinner made
sense on two levels and was rather
inspired, Back In Time For The
Factory was gibberish), it?s lost
none of its knack for making history
entertainingly palatable.
This latest series, however, has
obviously faced additional
challenges. There are limits, after
PICKS OF THE DAY
Comedy: Wallace & Gromit:
The Wrong Trousers, BBC1, 7pm
The transmission date of television
programmes is often cited to show
how quickly time passes. We find it
truly staggering, though, that Wallace
And Gromit first came into possession
of the wrong trousers 25 years ago.
Groundbreaking upon its arrival on
Boxing Day in 1993, the feature-length
offering is still as brilliant today as it
was back then. Nick Park?s Oscarwinning animation features a bumbling
inventor (Wallace) and his faithful dog
(Gromit), whose lives are turned
upside down after foolishly offering
board and lodgings to villainous
penguin Feathers McGraw. Even if
you have not seen this in a while,
memories of the train set and the
rubber glove will soon rush back.
Comedy: Island Of Dreams,
BBC2, 10pm
You may not realise who
the picture on the left is
but look again and you
might be able to work it
out. It is, in fact, Harry
Enfield, who stars in this
one-off comedy. Necker
Island has white sands,
turquoise sea and girls in
bikinis serving drinks.
What it also has is Sir
Richard Branson helping
to solve the problems of
celebrity guests, from JK
Rowling and Adele to
Daniel Radcliffe and
Daniel Craig, while they
enjoy some well-deserved
luxury of their own.
If you think Christmas has been expensive for your
family, spare a thought for the Radfords (above). The
cameras catch up with them as they get ready for the
birth of their 10th daughter. As the family prepares for
the new arrival, Sue and Noel, from Morecambe in
Lancashire, decide to head off on a super-sized
package holiday to Benidorm, with 20 kids in tow,
hoping to spend some quality time with their children.
DID YOU KNOW? Actor and comedian Harry En?eld started
writing comedy while studying politics at York University. He
then moved to Hackney, squatting in a ?at while working as a
milkman and met Paul Whitehouse over a pint in a local pub.

above) and Keegan decides to tip his mother off

startled by some of this stuff but
overall, late Victorian school life
doesn?t seem to faze them. Indeed,
they?re surprisingly keen on some
aspects. Even the food.
The tapioca may be a tad too
frogspawny for some but for one lad
it?s a revelation. ?It?s lovely!? he
declares. ?It?s loads better than
paying �60 for a really little panini
that?s just dry and doesn?t have
much filling in it.?
As for the segregation,
where it?s only the girls who
have to learn, for example,
how to make a bed, one
girl describes this as ?a
brilliant idea?.
?I?d do this over
Pythagoras? theorem
any day,? she declares.
?I?m not going to need
that in my life.?
all, to how accurately it can
recreate some of the schoolroom
practices of that era without
seriously overstepping the mark.
The teacher that is dealing with
that left-handed lad, for example,
has to break out of character and
stress her discomfort with the
punishment she?s having to impose.
?It does feel really wrong,? she
protests.
A colleague conducting a
geography lesson can barely
contain her horror at the
19th-century text book from
which she has to quote.
?I?m horrified,? she says,
referring in particular to
a line describing
aborigines as ?savages?.
Needless to say, the

year-olds) are also
A police forensic

Instead of daydreaming about how
to 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.

RUPERT?S ODD PARTY No 30
?I can?t prove anything, but I think I
know who caused such an odd party!
When I make sure I?ll tell you.? Rupert is
so tired that there is no argument when
bedtime comes. ?I can?t help thinking
that the Chinese doll was behind my
party,? he murmurs. ?I wonder where he
went to.? He hears a slight noise and
peers between the curtains. Seeing
nothing he prepares to get into bed.
Then he gives a start, for there in front
of him, perched on his eiderdown, is the
Chinese doll. ?You had good party, did
?What was that noise?? Up in his room, you?? it squeaks.
Then as he turns towards his bed,

others, the easier you will find it to overcome
stubborn problems. You aren?t a failure by
admitting you are struggling. If you aren?t
feeling well, let a loved one pamper you.
You can?t do it all on your own.

Growth fears despite
factories stockpiling
By David Shand
MANUFACTURING activity hit a sixmonth high in December as firms stockpiled goods at near-record rates to guarantee supplies amid concerns over
potential Brexit disruption.
But the boost is likely to be short-lived,
as business leaders warned that heightened uncertainty over Britain?s European Union exit and economic pressures
are denting growth and confidence.
The latest snapshot survey from IHS
Markit and the Chartered Institute of
Procurement and Supply of the sector ?
which generates 10 per cent of UK output ? showed order books at their fullest
for 10 months as demand increased at
home and abroad from markets such as
the US, China, India and Brazil.
The Purchasing Managers? Index rose
from 53.6 in November to 54.2 (a reading
above 50 denotes growth) with input
inventories rising at the fourth-fastest
rate in the survey?s 27-year history.
But this could not prevent manufacturing performing its weakest quarter
since the EU referendum in June 2016.
IHS Markit director Rob Dobson said:
?Companies stepped up their preparations for a potentially disruptive Brexit,
but any positive impact on the PMI is
likely to be short-lived, as any gains in
the near-term are reversed later in 2019
when safety stocks are eroded or become
obsolete. Uncertainties regarding Brexit
Steel pipe welding at the SAW Pipe Mills in Hartlepool as factories gear up for Brexit
disruption on supply chains and the
exchange rate are also weighing on business confidence.?
Pressures building on businesses from
rising costs and labour shortages are
highlighted today by the British Chambers of Commerce, whose survey of 6,000
firms found the economy ending 2018
?stuck in a weak holding pattern? with
?stagnating? levels of growth and business confidence. Its research showed the
percentage of firms in the services sector
reporting an increase in domestic sales
and orders going down to its lowest level
in two years, while 81 per cent of manufacturers that had tried to recruit
reported difficulties in finding the right
staff.
Director general Adam Marshall said:
?The economy is in stasis. Companies
are, understandably, holding back on
spending and big decisions.?
Stocks shock at braking China
Faroe fuels takeover hostility
GLOBAL stock markets
wobbled and the price of
gold hit its highest for over
six months after weak data
from China signalled a
slowdown in the world?s
second-biggest economy.
The FTSE 100 fell nearly 2
per cent after heavy losses
across Asia, before
FAROE PETROLEUM has
stepped up its attack on Norwegian suitor DNO by
claiming its �8million hostile takeover bid undervalues
the business by up to 48 per
cent.
UK and Norway-focused
Faroe said an independent
report on its assets by oil and
recovering to close six points
higher at 6734. European
markets also fought back.
Manufacturing activity in
China has contracted for the
first time in 19 months.
City Index analyst Fiona
Cincotta said: ?These
numbers will be making
investors nervous.?
gas industry expert Gaffney,
Cline & Associates implied a
valuation of 186p to 225p per
share, ?clearly highlighting
the inadequacy of DNO?s
offer of 152p in cash?.
DNO, with nearly 30 per
cent of shares, said the report
is ?an historic view using an
inflated commodity price?.

at Ayr yesterday with Glittering Love ? little over 24 hours after
they instructed their trainers not to enter any of their horses at
Cheltenham.
The Rooneys have enjoyed big-race success over jumps and on
the Flat in recent years, recording winners at the Cheltenham
Festival and Royal Ascot, but are understood to be boycotting
the home of National Hunt racing due to safety concerns.

TENNIS: AUSTRALIAN OPEN COUNTDOWN
By Neil McLeman
ANDY MURRAY says
his lack of competitive
tennis
was
brutally
exposed in defeat by
world
No16
Daniil
Medvedev yesterday.
The former world No1?s
latest comeback ended after
two matches as he lost 7-5, 6-2
in 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 22-year-old
Russian to show how difficult
it will be to return to the top of
the game at the age of 31.
Murray had won the title in
his past two appearances in
Queensland.
But he said: ?I made too
many mistakes. When you play
better players ? he is a top
player ? they will expose any
errors you make in your game
or any shots you?re not hitting
particularly well. He did just
that.
?As you play up the levels,
whether it is issues with
your game, whether you
are not serving as well or
moving as well, the better
players exploit that.
?I need to try and find a
way of working out how to
get around with some of
the things I?m struggling
with now and I?ll try and do
that.?
Murray will travel to
Melbourne to prepare for
the Australian Open, which
starts on January 14.
He is world No240 and has
won back-to-back matches
in only two of the seven
tournaments he has played
since
limping
out
of
Wimbledon in 2017.
He underwent hip surgery
last January.
Asked about his hip, he
said: ?It is OK, not perfect.
Better than how I was
competing a few months ago
when I was playing and
competing back-to-back days.
?Playing the best of five sets
is obviously physically more
demanding but sometimes you
get more than 48 hours to
recover from matches at the
Slams.?
Rafa Nadal, who has played
only one exhibition match
since the US Open semi-final,
yesterday pulled out of the
Brisbane event with a left
thigh strain.
?It?s a risk to damage my
body for one month if I play
here,? he said.
?I had an MRI and it shows a
small strain on my left thigh. I
tried to play, I wanted to play,
but recommendations from
the doctors...?

by world No185 Yasutaka
Uchiyama of Japan.
Edmund had chances in the
fifth game of the first set but
Uchiyama saved two break
points and the remainder of
the set also followed serve.
Edmund broke twice during
the tie-break but failed to
convert two set points and
Uchiyama won four points in a
row to take the set in just
under an hour. The Japanese
wrapped up the second set in

said
the
European
Tour
is
only
a
?stepping stone? as he
focuses on life abroad.
McIlroy is in Hawaii
for the Tournament of
Champions this week
and he said: ?My life is
here.
?I have an American
wife. I live in America.
Honestly, I enjoy it here
more. The way of life
is easier. The weather.
The convenience.
?You go to Europe
and get paid a nice
amount of money to
start the year. I?ve done
that for a decade now. I
want to switch it up.
I?ve done it for 11 years,
so I may as well do
something different.?
In recent seasons
McIlroy has begun his
playing year during the
European Tour?s series
of tournaments in the
Middle East.
But he announced in
November he would be
focusing on the PGA
Tour until the end of
August. The Northern
Irishman, who has now
set up home in Florida,
has so far committed
to playing only two
European Tour events
in 2019.
He must play four
outside the Majors and
World Championship
competitions to retain
his European Tour
membership.
Ahead of the Hawaii
tournament
McIlroy,
speaking on pgatour.
com, said: ?I want to
play against the best in
the world. I get a buzz
from that. I?d rather
go down the stretch
against Justin Thomas
or Dustin Johnson. I?m
not putting anyone
down in Europe, but
the depths of the field
and everything is just
that bit better here.
?That?s why the
likes of Francesco
Molinari are here
this week too. It?s
where it?s heading.
?The ultimate
goal is here. The

is a stepping

truth.?

FOOTBALL: PREMIER LEAGUE
By Phil Blanche
and Dave Armitage
SON HEUNG-MIN is ?sad?
and ?sorry? to be leaving
Tottenham?s trophy chase to
play at the Asian Cup ? but
hopes to come back full of
confidence.
The South Korea striker has been
in tremendous form and scored his
eighth goal in nine games as
Spurs reclaimed second spot in the
Premier League with a 3-0 win at
Cardiff on New Year?s Day.
Tottenham are chasing their first
trophy for 11 years on four fronts.
Tomorrow night they visit League
Two Tranmere in the FA Cup third
round and on Tuesday meet Chelsea
at Wembley in the first leg of their
Carabao Cup semi-final.
They are also in the last 16 of the
Champions League and host the first
leg against Borussia Dortmund on
February 13.
Son will head for international duty
after the Premier League game
against Manchester United on
Sunday week and could miss up to
five
matches
because
of
the
tournament in the United Arab
Emirates.
?Of course I feel very sorry because
I was already missing in September,?
said Son, referring to his involvement
for South Korea at the Asian Games
earlier this season.
?I feel sorry for my team-mates, the
fans and the coaching staff. It?s
difficult. Sometimes you think it?s a
bit sad, but it is also important for my
country. I hope I can keep my form
Sad Son
will stay
strong
for the national team and when I
come back here again as well.?
South Korea are favourites to win
the Asian Cup and the final takes
place in Abu Dhabi on February 1.
Tottenham will also be concerned
that Son?s displays were initially
sluggish after he returned from the
Asian Games, a tournament which
South Korea won
and had the
added benefit
of exempting Son from national
service in the South Korean military.
It was only after Son had a break
from international duty in November
that he found the form which has
made him one of the hottest
properties in the Premier League.
?I was tired after the Asian Games
because in that tournament it was
playing every two or three
days,? he said.
?It is very

important to be right mentally at the
Asian Cup and to come back with a
strong mind and be strong physically.
?I?m going there not just to enjoy it,
I am going there to win something
and come back with confidence.?
Son scored the third goal to secure
victory against Cardiff after Harry
Kane had set Spurs on their way with
the opener, and the England captain
wants 2019 to be the year he wins a
trophy for the club.
Spurs? last silverware came in 2008,
when they beat Chelsea 2-1 in the
League Cup final at Wembley.
?Wishes for 2019? Same as last
year ? to win a team trophy,? said
Kane. ?It didn?t quite happen [last
year] but that?s the goal and that?s
what I?m aiming for personally.
?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
[as title rivals] and then Chelsea the
year after, so we?ve just got to
concentrate on ourselves.?
And he said Saturday?s surprise
3-1 defeat by Wolves was a real jolt,
adding: ?It was just one of those
things ? a kind of kick up the backside
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.?

GARY ROWETT is
facing the sack at
Stoke with David Moyes
and Sam Allardyce in the
running to succeed him.
The Potters? owners are
rapidly running out of
patience with Rowett after
a dismal festive period.
Rowett was hired in May
to lead Stoke straight back
into the Premier League
but they are languishing in
14th place, eight points
outside the play-off places.

BRUCE: Former Blade
SHEFFIELD
Wednesday have
appointed Steve
Bruce as their new
manager.
The 58-year-old,
who started his
managerial career at
city rivals Sheffield
United in 1998, is to
take charge of the
Owls on February 1.
His long-time
coaching associates
Steve Agnew and
Stephen Clemence
will be in control in
the meantime.
Bruce succeeds
Dutchman Jos
Luhukay, who was
sacked last month
after less than a
year in charge of
the Championship
side.
?Bruce brings a
first-class CV to
Hillsborough, with
an outstanding
success rate of
Championship
promotions ? four to
date,? the club said
in a statement.
Bruce has won
promotion to the
Premier League with
Birmingham and
Hull twice each. He
was in the hot seat
when the Tigers
defeated Wednesday
in the 2016 play-off
final at Wembley.
Bruce has also had
managerial stints at
Huddersfield, Wigan
(twice), Crystal
Palace, Sunderland
and Aston Villa.
The former
Manchester United
and Norwich central
defender took Villa
to the play-off final
last season but they
lost to Fulham and
he was sacked in
October.
?
JACK GREALISH is
seeking a further scan
on his shin in a bid to boost
Aston Villa?s promotion bid.
The 23-year-old, below, has
missed the past five games
and is not expected back
until February at the earliest.
Grealish
is out of a
protective boot
and has been
doing gym
work.
Villa have
won only once
since Grealish
was injured. The player has
requested another scan
because he feels he might
be further on in his recovery
than advised.

HIT FOR SIX: Ryan Fraser celebrates the final goal
Troy stings
Hornets
back to life
A FALSE fire alarm
delayed kick-off at the
Vitality Stadium before
this cracker caught fire
on the pitch.
Bournemouth and
Watford shared six
first-half goals ? with
four in seven hectic
minutes ? to warm up
the chilly Dorset night.
Recalled Hornets
captain Troy Deeney
scored twice and
terrorised the home
defence all evening.
But Eddie Howe
celebrated his 10th
anniversary of taking
the Bournemouth job
by seeing his injury-hit
side record their first
draw since October
after nine defeats in
11 games. And only the
brilliance of Ben Foster
after the break denied
the Cherries victory.
Howe said: ?We went
2-0 down and it looked
like a big ask but fair
play to the players. It
was the ability to never
give up and we should
have won the game in
the end.
?We had chances and
they didn?t have many,
but they took them. It
was a frustrating
second half because we
should have won. We
went all out to win but
it?s another point
closer to where we
want to be.?
The draw moved
Watford up to eighth in
search of their highest
Premier League finish
? and they were denied
an injury-time penalty
when substitute Tom
Cleverley?s shot hit the
hand of Nathan Ake.
Watford manager
Javi Gracia said: ?I?m a
little disappointed
because after scoring
three goals we have
lost a good chance to
win. It?s not easy to
score three goals away
from home.
?We had to defend
better. We competed
well and we were
looking for victory until
the end. Maybe if it
could have worked
differently but we kept
working.?
Watford took the
lead with a fine team
goal after 14 minutes,

as Deeney headed in
Ken Sema?s cross. The
striker then doubled
his account 13 minutes
later when he pounced
on a loose ball.
But the Cherries
were soon level after a
chaotic end to the
opening period.
In the 34th minute
Fraser floated a
free-kick to the back
post and, after Foster
saved, Ake eventually
nodded home. Three
minutes later another
set-piece from the
Scotland star saw
England striker Callum
Wilson head into the
top corner.
The Hornets
reclaimed the lead
barely a minute later
when Sema volleyed
home his first goal for
the club after Deeney
had caused more chaos
in the hosts? rearguard.
And to cap off a wild
seven minutes, Junior
Stanislas crossed and
both strikers dummied
to allow the unmarked
Fraser to sweep home
on the back post
All told the first half
saw nine shots on
target ? and produced
six goals.
Inevitably the pace
dropped off after the
break as Foster denied
both Bournemouth
strikers. Wilson soon
met another Fraser
free-kick only for
Foster to claw away his
header, before the
keeper blocked Joshua
King?s fierce shot to
preserve a point.
BURNLEY
capitalised
on Town defender Chris
Schindler?s memory loss
as this cross-Pennines
battle finished with two
red cards and three
points for the Clarets.
Schindler walked for a second
bookable offence in the first half
of a high-octane but poorquality match after appearing
not to realise he had earlier
received a first yellow.
It proved the pivotal moment
of the contest after a second
card for pulling down Dwight
McNeil.
Against 10 men, a patient
Burnley took a slow but firm
grip, with Ashley Barnes?s calm
second-half finish eventually
separating the two sides.
Even a late red for Burnley?s
Robbie Brady after a reckless
challenge on Isaac Mbenza
came too late to avoid a fourth
straight home defeat for Town,
the first time since 1934-35.
It was an eight defeat in a row
which left Huddersfield manager
David Wagner accepting his side

now face a huge battle to stay in
the Premier League.
?We know statistically no
team has stayed up with 10
points after 21 games but we
have beaten statistics before,?
said Wagner.
?This is exactly what makes it
so exciting to beat the statistics
? to be the first to do something
nobody else has done before.
?We have lost eight games in a
row. But the commitment the
players show is absolutely there.
I don?t have the feeling that I
have to convince anybody. But if
you see how narrow everything
is [in the table], every game you
can change it.?
Victory gave Burnley some
breathing space after a dismal
run ? lifting them two points
away from the relegation places.
Burnley had emerged from a
miserable festive period with
some much -needed momentum
after taking three vital points
from a tense encounter against
West Ham at Turf Moor on
Sunday.
There had been no such
lightening of the gloom in this
part of West Yorkshire -match
tailspin which stretches back to
November.
It was no surprise then that
there was little composure or
quality in the opening exchanges
given what was at stake for both
sides but neither appeared to
have the ball under any sort of
control, the only shot on target
from Mounie barely reaching
Tom Heaton let alone troubling
him.
As the opening period wore
on both carved out a few
openings and it was Huddersfield
who got their noses in front just
after the half-hour mark.
Mounie has not scored since
May but rose well between Ben
Mee and Charlie Taylor to
glance home a cross from

AGAIN:

gets the equaliser

lasted just seven minutes,
Burnley levelling through Wood
? his seventh against the Terriers
? after McNeil capitalised on
some indecision from Florent
Hadergjonaj and squared for
the striker to calmly slot home
from six yards.
One minute later Schindler
got his second yellow of the
night. Not that he knew it,
arguing with referee Mike Dean
who could clearly be seen telling
him: ?I?ve booked you already!?
The dismissal left the home
side reshaping but it took
Burnley some time to break
them down.
As time wore on Burnley
started to make better use of
the
extra
manpower
as
Huddersfield became stretched.
Sean Dyche decision to switch
the tiring McNeil with Robbie
Brady brought dividends on an
already stretched left side of the
pitch.
Pressure had been building
and was eventually rewarded
when
Wood
and
Ashley
Westwood combined to put
Barnes clear on goal after 74
minutes, the striker making no
mistake from 13 yards out.
Brady?s reckless challenge
on Mbenza on 90 minutes rules
him out for three matches which
is a blow but a second victory
and a climb out of the
bottom three will do much to
soothe it.

TOO LATE Christian
Pulisic, there?s no way
to turn back now.
To be fair to Chelsea, they
have signed the �million
man from Dortmund to
freshen up a squad that ?
regardless of what happens
this season ? looks to have
reached the end of its cycle.
No wonder some home
fans booed at the final
whistle. Chelsea are going
backwards.
If Pulisic was following
this in Germany, he would
have probably turned over
to watch the local version of
The Apprentice instead.
Chelsea manager Maurizio
Sarri said: ?We had four or
five goal opportunities but
sometimes if you want to
have a lot of opportunities
you have to score the first
goal.
?We did not move the ball
very well and we need to
improve. We were playing
without important players
like Pedro, Willian after 30
minutes, Callum HudsonOdoi was out. On the bench I
only had one offensive player
(Ruben) Loftus-Cheek and
he is not very well at the
moment with back trouble.?
It is a long time since
Stamford Bridge has been
so quiet. The Chelsea faithful
had so little to shout about
you could, at times, hear the
players on the pitch.
Following his arrival in the
summer,
Sarri
initially
banished
the
misery
the club had been plunged
into under Antonio Conte.
An 18-match undefeated
run in all competitions,
between
August
and
November,
generated
genuine belief that Chelsea
could even launch a surprise
title challenge. Those heady
days are long gone.
This month they surely
have to bite the bullet and
bring in a new striker. Eden
Hazard is their top scorer in
the Premier League with 10
goals this season. No other
Chelsea player features in
the top 20. Remarkable.
Hazard?s shoulders must
be aching from carrying the
team.
Chelsea?s
biggest
chances here came from his
boot. After 33 minutes

in a Sarri state
Antonio Rudiger?s ball over
the top found the winger in
space and Angus Gunn ?
making his league debut ?
took one in the face.
In the 57th minute, Gunn
stood up to Hazard again,
this time parrying a drive
from outside the box. Two
minutes later a ball over the
top from David Luiz almost
released the Belgian again.
Where was Alvaro Morata
all this time, I hear you ask?
Largely anonymous, would
be the reply. To be fair,
Morata did have a couple of
efforts on goal. When he did
eventually get the ball in the
net, in the 70th minute,
he
was
controversially
flagged offside.
This was all too easy for a
fragile Southampton team
who were there for the
taking. Instead the visitors
started to fancy their own
chances with Danny Ings
heading over, and livewire
Stuart Armstrong forcing
Kepa Arrizabalaga into a
save after half-time. With the
clock running down, the
Matthew
Harding
end
implored the home side to
find
something
from
somewhere. Chelsea simply
could not respond and
Southampton were able to
keep their first clean sheet in
11 games.
Ralph Hasenhuttl and his
men had to survive an injurytime penalty shout when
Marcos Alonso went over in
the box. It should have been
given. But, in truth, victory
would have flattered Chelsea.
Manager Hasenhuttl said:
?It was very hard work. But
we deserved a point.?

ago. Pulisic, who joined
Dortmund as a youth
player in 2015 and
has made more than
100 appearances for
the club, could arrive
at Stamford Bridge as a
title winner, with his
team now leading the
Bundesliga by six points.
Dortmund described
the deal as ?extremely
lucrative ? given the low
contract maturity?. The
youngster was due to
become a free agent at
the end of next season.
Pulisic said of his
move: ?It?s a privilege to
have signed for such a
legendary club.?
His arrival will not be
the end of the comings
and goings, with Cesc
Fabregas expected to
play his last game for
Chelsea against
Nottingham Forest in
the FA Cup on Saturday
before joining Thierry
Henry at Monaco.
Gary Cahill is close to
a switch to Fulham while
Danny Drinkwater has
been made available.
The club are also
putting pressure on
top scorer Eden Hazard
to decide his future,
with Real Madrid
believed to be waiting
in the wings.

Ayew gives
Hodgson a
table place
ROY HODGSON is
now even more
convinced his Palace
side are in a false
position in the table.
Palace staged a late,
late show to upset a
Wolves side who have
been the talk of the
town just lately.
Wins over Tottenham
and Chelsea had seen
the newly-promoted
side up on the verge of
the top six but Jordan
Ayew took the wind
out of their sails with
an 83rd-minute goal
and Palace sealed the
points with a Luka
Milivojevic penalty
right on the whistle.
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 I think we?ve
proved that with this
result.
?Wolves are in
excellent form so to
come here and win
against a team with
that confidence is very

in Ayew for Jeff
Schlupp and saw it
give him a bumper
pay-off. Ayew was on
the spot to ram the
ball home from eight
yards as Palace finally
made the
breakthrough.
As the game seemed
to be fading to a
goalless stalemate,
Ayew stepped up and
put a whole new look
on it.
Zaha ? who else ?
was involved and that?s
just as well because he
is 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 will point to an
invaluable assist in the
lead-up to Ayew?s
decisive late strike.
Zaha had already
sparked a game of
AYEW BEAUTY: Jordan Ayew slots the opening goal
pleasing.? Palace
certainly do need goals
? but they will not be
coming from
Liverpool?s Dominic
Solanke, who has seen
a proposed loan deal
fall through. A muscle
problem appears to be
the stumbling block.
Hodgson confirmed
the club had decided
not to proceed with a
move for the striker,
saying there were
?complications.?
But on the pitch,
there was reason to
celebrate. Star man
Wilfried Zaha might
have forgotten how to
score, but Palace will
not be worrying about
that too much.
Ayew, himself
without a goal this
season, celebrated his
recall to the Palace
side by breaking the
deadlock.
Then Palace added a
second with the very
last kick ? a Milivojevic
penalty after Zaha had
been sent tumbling by
Ryan Bennett.
Hodgson only made
one change ? bringing

ping-pong in the
Wolves box.
But when the ball
came back out to him,
he played it to Patrick
Van Aanholt, who sent
the ball towards the
edge of the six-yard
box where Ayew was
lurking.
He was calmness
personified, steering a
shot into the net with
his left foot.
Then, with the
referee set to blow the
final whistle, Zaha was
sent tumbling in the
box by Bennett for a
spot-kick. Milivojevic
stepped up and made
no mistake.

condemned
Newcastle
to
another
nervy
relegation
battle.
The Red Devils now have
Arsenal, and the top four, in
their sights.
And soon the debate will
start over whether Solskjaer
deserves to stay in charge
beyond this season.
Fresh from scoring 12 in their
previous three games after
Mourinho?s
departure,

visitors were shackled until the
64th minute, but cut loose.
Lukaku smashed home his
eighth of the season, reacting
quickest to a fumble by
Newcastle goalkeeper Martin
Dubravka.
The breakthrough was hard
won, as United toiled against
mass defensive ranks and little
space.
But it was Solskjaer?s 63rdminute substitutions which
shook the game out of its
stalemate with Lukaku coming
on with Sanchez.
Rashford lined up a free-kick
from 30 yards and drove it
down the middle of the goal.
Dubravka failed to hold the
palm-stinger, spilling the ball
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.
Newcastle manager Rafa
Benitez tries to grind out
points against sides with
vastly
superior
playing
resources to his own current
squad, but it rarely works.
This was one of those nights,
as Newcastle banked up behind
the ball, allowing Manchester
possession for long periods ?
and firing off the occasional
warning on the counter-attack.
It
is
doubtful
whether
Mourinho?s lacklustre version
of United would have broken
Newcastle down. But Solskjaer?s
version has a freshness and a
zest which won through.
Benitez did not have the
tools to add to his four wins
against Manchester United
with three different English
clubs ? two when he was at
Liverpool, one at Chelsea and
Newcastle?s win in this fixture
last season.
This was not the rampant,
fizzing Manchester United of
the first three games of
Solskjaer?s
interim
reign.
However, they were in charge
but for the odd Magpies
counter-attack.
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 Manchester
United defence three times,
forcing saves from David
De Gea to lift the home side.
There were signs of the
sloppiness Manchester United
thought they had eliminated
from
their
game
since
Mourinho?s departure, when
Phil Jones?s clumsy touch
played in Salomon Rondon.
The defender mopped up with
an excellent covering tackle.

neat exchanges and Paul Pogba
went close from 18 yards.
Newcastle were clinging to
parity
with
spirit
and
aggression.
But half-time came and
then Solskjaer?s substitutions
changed the game.
Rashford was a bright spark,
worrying the home side with
his pace. His cut-back ended in
a shot over the bar as United

Benitez: We deserved more
FROM BACK PAGE
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
games need to be won.
?The performance
was really
professional, really
solid. To come here
with the fans they
have got, it was
really excellent.?
The result keeps
alive Manchester United?s
slim hopes of a top-four finish
after they looked all over under
predecessor Jose Mourinho.
Victory earns Solskjaer a
place in the record books
alongside Busby to bridge a
72-year gap.
Newcastle are crashing
towards 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 still
remaining.
And they will require a
dramatic upturn to avoid
displacing the 2012-13 squad,
who lost nine times on home
soil. A clanger by goalkeeper
Martin Dubravka gift-wrapped
Manchester United?s opener,
scored by 63rd-minute
substitute Lukaku.
?It?s a pity after all that effort
the team put in we concede a
goal like that,? said Toon
manager Rafa Benitez, left.
?We have to be disappointed
in the way we lost.
?If the other team is doing
much better, fair enough but we
made a mistake to concede a
goal and then conceded another
in a counter-attack. For
85 minutes of the game,
we deserved something.?
Benitez insists the poor home
form is an overriding concern,
adding: ?We made a mistake
and paid a price for that.?

WEST HAM needed an
injection of life and
Manuel Pellegrini had
new signing Samir
Nasri available after his
doping ban and on the
bench.
But 2-0 down and
with a frantic Premier
League game to chase
was not the gentle
reintroduction to
English football
Pellegrini had in mind
for the Frenchman.
So instead he turned
to Mark Noble and
Michail Antonio, who
combined with Marko
Arnautovic to revive
the Hammers.
Pellegrini?s men were
trailing to two goals in
two minutes from
corners, scored by Dale
Stephens and then
Shane Duffy.
But just when
Brighton were thinking
about celebrating a
fourth straight win
against West Ham and
just a fifth on the road
since their top-flight
return, Noble, Antonio
and Arnautovic
intervened. Pellegrini

energy,? Pellegrini said.
Andy Carroll was
handed his first start
for a year but was
brought off at half-time
in a pre-planned
substitution, despite
him also taking a
whack to the head
from Lewis Dunk that
left him needing
stitches above his eye.
And the game
exploded into life in
Carroll?s absence.
Brighton took a 56thminute lead when
Lukasz Fabianski could
only palm a corner
down straight to
Stephens, who volleyed
home.
Two minutes later
Brighton got a second
when Pascal Gross?s
corner drifted to the
far post and Duffy
turned it in as he fell.
Pellegrini?s response
was to chuck on Noble
and Antonio in the
HAMMER DRILL: Marko Arnautovic fires in his first
said: ?We know that
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, continued fighting
and the subs changed
the face of the game.
?Nasri can play 15, 20
minutes and my
intention was to use
him but the way the
game was it was a risk
but I?m sure he will be
a decisive player.
?I?m very
disappointed about the
result but very happy
with the spirit.?
The return to the
scoresheet of
Arnautovic was
another reminder of his
talismanic qualities
and another plus for
Pellegrini.
The Austrian?s goals
were his first since
November 3 and his
return from missing
most of last month
with a hamstring
injury. ?He has been
injured so he is full of
63rd minute and their
impact was almost
instant.
Noble?s ball over the
top led to the first
which Arnautovic
forced in after holding
off Duffy.
Two minutes later,
Noble combined with
Antonio down the right
and he bamboozled
and bullied Bernardo
before crossing for
Arnautovic to stab in
the equaliser.
Brighton boss Chris
Hughton said: ?It?s
hugely disappointing
because, the level of
team that we are, away
points are going to be
more difficult to get
than home points.?

KEY BATTLES AT THE ETIHAD
VAN DIJK v AGUERO
IN WITH A
SHOUT:
Van Dijk will be
aiming to shut
down Aguero,
right, with the
striker boasting
an impressive
record against
Liverpool at
the Etihad
Getting the Liverpool defender out of his comfort zone will not
be easy but Aguero has to try to give him a working over even if
it means just a 60-minute shift. Aguero has never got the better
of the ex-Southampton man in six meetings but has scored
against Liverpool in each of his six league games at the Etihad.
ALISSON v EDERSON
The Brazilian sweeper keepers, below, go head-to-head but it
is with hands and heads they need to be on song. Alisson has
12 clean sheets to Ederson?s eight yet both have made two
errors leading to goals in the current campaign. City?s keeper
must resist the tendency to dive at feet, having conceded two
penalties this season.
SALAH v DANILO
Benjamin Mendy?s continuing injury troubles and
Fabian Delph?s suspension for a red card on Boxing
Day mean that Pep Guardiola could go with Danilo at
left-back as Oleksandr Zinchenko has failed to
impress in his defensive duties. The other option for
the City manager is to go with a three-man back line
with Aymeric Laporte ?lling in. Regardless, Mo Salah
will be rubbing his hands at the prospect.

MIDFIELD BATTLE ZONE
City have been able to ?eld their ?rst-choice mid?eld of
Fernandinho, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne, above, just
once this season [a 3-0 win away to Shakhtar Donetsk] but
the trio look set to play against Liverpool, which could see
the battle swing City?s way in the middle third.

of

framed
as
the
gunslingers? final shoot-out
arriving halfway through
the blockbuster, but Pep
Guardiola promises there
will be plenty of twists in
the plot still to come after
tonight?s showdown.
The Manchester City manager
assembled his players before
training yesterday and told them,
whatever happens at the Etihad
tonight, they must keep applying
pressure to title rivals Liverpool in
the belief the Reds will crack at
some stage from now to May.
It was a conclusion, he
conceded, that drew on a degree
of optimism but it is also one

?There

this

because there are a lot

?Everyone is going to play
the last third of the season with
all the big targets and every game
will be more tough.
?After 29 years not winning the
Premier League, to be there to win
it, I understand [the pressure]. I
can feel what they feel, the
Liverpool players. And I said to the
players, that?s difficult to handle.
?That is why in this season it is
important to maintain that for as
far as possible.?
Guardiola is well aware of
the size of City?s task, both in
the table, where they trail by
seven points after three
losses in their past five topflight matches, and against
a rival in Jurgen Klopp
whose style seems close
to Kryptonite.

TENNIS: AUSTRALIAN OPEN COUNTDOWN
By Neil McLeman
ANDY MURRAY says
his lack of competitive
tennis
was
brutally
exposed in defeat by
world
No16
Daniil
Medvedev yesterday.
The former world No1?s
latest comeback ended after
two matches as he lost 7-5, 6-2
in 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 22-year-old
Russian to show how difficult
it will be to return to the top of
the game at the age of 31.
Murray had won the title in
his past two appearances in
Queensland.
But he said: ?I made too
many mistakes. When you play
better players ? he is a top
player ? they will expose any
errors you make in your game
or any shots you?re not hitting
particularly well. He did just
that.
?As you play up the levels,
whether it is issues with
your game, whether you
are not serving as well or
moving as well, the better
players exploit that.
?I need to try and find a
way of working out how to
get around with some of
the things I?m struggling
with now and I?ll try and do
that.?
Murray will travel to
Melbourne to prepare for
the Australian Open, which
starts on January 14.
He is world No240 and has
won back-to-back matches
in only two of the seven
tournaments he has played
since
limping
out
of
Wimbledon in 2017.
He underwent hip surgery
last January.
Asked about his hip, he
said: ?It is OK, not perfect.
Better than how I was
competing a few months ago
when I was playing and
competing back-to-back days.
?Playing the best of five sets
is obviously physically more
demanding but sometimes you
get more than 48 hours to
recover from matches at the
Slams.?
Rafa Nadal, who has played
only one exhibition match
since the US Open semi-final,
yesterday pulled out of the
Brisbane event with a left
thigh strain.
?It?s a risk to damage my
body for one month if I play
here,? he said.
?I had an MRI and it shows a
small strain on my left thigh. I
tried to play, I wanted to play,
but recommendations from
the doctors...?

British player to go out in
Brisbane. No1 Kyle Edmund,

who reached the Australian

suffered a shock 7-6, 6-4 defeat
by world No185 Yasutaka
Uchiyama of Japan.
Edmund had chances in the
fifth game of the first set but
Uchiyama saved two break
points and the remainder of
the set also followed serve.
Edmund broke twice during
the tie-break but failed to
convert two set points and
Uchiyama won four points in a
row to take the set in just
under an hour. The Japanese
wrapped up the second set in
36 minutes for victory.
British

Johanna Konta is also out

4-0 down ? having got over the
shock of that losing streak ? to
force a tie-break.

RORY McILROY has
said
the
European
Tour
is
only
a
?stepping stone? as he
focuses on life abroad.
McIlroy is in Hawaii
for the Tournament of
Champions this week
and he said: ?My life is
here.
?I have an American
wife. I live in America.
Honestly, I enjoy it here
more. The way of life
is easier. The weather.
The convenience.
?You go to Europe
and get paid a nice
amount of money to
start the year. I?ve done
that for a decade now. I
want to switch it up.
I?ve done it for 11 years,
so I may as well do
something different.?
In recent seasons
McIlroy has begun his
playing year during the
European Tour?s series
of tournaments in the
Middle East.
But he announced in
November he would be
focusing on the PGA
Tour until the end of
August. The Northern
Irishman, who has now
set up home in Florida,
has so far committed
to playing only two
European Tour events
in 2019.
He must play four
outside the Majors and
World Championship
competitions to retain
his European Tour
membership.
Ahead of the Hawaii
tournament
McIlroy,
speaking on pgatour.
com, said: ?I want to
play against the best in
the world. I get a buzz
from that. I?d rather
go down the stretch
against Justin Thomas
or Dustin Johnson. I?m
not putting anyone
down in Europe, but
the depths of the field
and everything is just
that bit better here.
?That?s why the
likes of Francesco
Molinari are here
this week too. It?s
where it?s heading.
?The ultimate
goal is here. The
European Tour
is a stepping
stone. That?s the
truth.?

FOOTBALL: PREMIER LEAGUE
By Phil Blanche
and Dave Armitage
SON HEUNG-MIN is ?sad?
and ?sorry? to be leaving
Tottenham?s trophy chase to
play at the Asian Cup ? but
hopes to come back full of
confidence.
The South Korea striker has been
in tremendous form and scored his
eighth goal in nine games as
Spurs reclaimed second spot in the
Premier League with a 3-0 win at
Cardiff on New Year?s Day.
Tottenham are chasing their first
trophy for 11 years on four fronts.
Tomorrow night they visit League
Two Tranmere in the FA Cup third
round and on Tuesday meet Chelsea
at Wembley in the first leg of their
Carabao Cup semi-final.
They are also in the last 16 of the
Champions League and host the first
leg against Borussia Dortmund on
February 13.
Son will head for international duty
after the Premier League game
against Manchester United on
Sunday week and could miss up to
five
matches
because
of
the
tournament in the United Arab
Emirates.
?Of course I feel very sorry because
I was already missing in September,?
said Son, referring to his involvement
for South Korea at the Asian Games
earlier this season.
?I feel sorry for my team-mates, the
fans and the coaching staff. It?s
difficult. Sometimes you think it?s a
bit sad, but it is also important for my
country. I hope I can keep my form
Sad Son
will stay
strong
for the national team and when I
come back here again as well.?
South Korea are favourites to win
the Asian Cup and the final takes
place in Abu Dhabi on February 1.
Tottenham will also be concerned
that Son?s displays were initially
sluggish after he returned from the
Asian Games, a tournament which
South Korea won
and had the
added benefit
of exempting Son from national
service in the South Korean military.
It was only after Son had a break
from international duty in November
that he found the form which has
made him one of the hottest
properties in the Premier League.
?I was tired after the Asian Games
because in that tournament it was
playing every two or three
days,? he said.
?It is very

important to be right mentally at the
Asian Cup and to come back with a
strong mind and be strong physically.
?I?m going there not just to enjoy it,
I am going there to win something
and come back with confidence.?
Son scored the third goal to secure
victory against Cardiff after Harry
Kane had set Spurs on their way with
the opener, and the England captain
wants 2019 to be the year he wins a
trophy for the club.
Spurs? last silverware came in 2008,
when they beat Chelsea 2-1 in the
League Cup final at Wembley.
?Wishes for 2019? Same as last
year ? to win a team trophy,? said
Kane. ?It didn?t quite happen [last
year] but that?s the goal and that?s
what I?m aiming for personally.
?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
[as title rivals] and then Chelsea the
year after, so we?ve just got to
concentrate on ourselves.?
And he said Saturday?s surprise
3-1 defeat by Wolves was a real jolt,
adding: ?It was just one of those
things ? a kind of kick up the backside
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.?

GARY ROWETT is
facing the sack at
Stoke with David Moyes
and Sam Allardyce in the
running to succeed him.
The Potters? owners are
rapidly running out of
patience with Rowett after
a dismal festive period.
Rowett was hired in May
to lead Stoke straight back
into the Premier League
but they are languishing in
14th place, eight points
outside the play-off places.
The Stoke hierarchy have
met to discuss Rowett?s
future and feel Moyes or
Allardyce could come in
and mount a promotion
push in the second half of
the campaign.

BRUCE: Former Blade
SHEFFIELD
Wednesday have
appointed Steve
Bruce as their new
manager.
The 58-year-old,
who started his
managerial career at
city rivals Sheffield
United in 1998, is to
take charge of the
Owls on February 1.
His long-time
coaching associates
Steve Agnew and
Stephen Clemence
will be in control in
the meantime.
Bruce succeeds
Dutchman Jos
Luhukay, who was
sacked last month
after less than a
year in charge of
the Championship
side.
?Bruce brings a
first-class CV to
Hillsborough, with
an outstanding
success rate of
Championship
promotions ? four to
date,? the club said
in a statement.
Bruce has won
promotion to the
Premier League with
Birmingham and
Hull twice each. He
was in the hot seat
when the Tigers
defeated Wednesday
in the 2016 play-off
final at Wembley.
Bruce has also had
managerial stints at
Huddersfield, Wigan
(twice), Crystal
Palace, Sunderland
and Aston Villa.
The former
Manchester United
and Norwich central
defender took Villa
to the play-off final
last season but they
lost to Fulham and
he was sacked in
October.
?
JACK GREALISH is
seeking a further scan
on his shin in a bid to boost
Aston Villa?s promotion bid.
The 23-year-old, below, has
missed the past five games
and is not expected back
until February at the earliest.
Grealish
is out of a
protective boot
and has been
doing gym
work.
Villa have
won only once
since Grealish
was injured. The player has
requested another scan
because he feels he might
be further on in his recovery
than advised.

HIT FOR SIX: Ryan Fraser celebrates the final goal
Troy stings
Hornets
back to life
A FALSE fire alarm
delayed kick-off at the
Vitality Stadium before
this cracker caught fire
on the pitch.
Bournemouth and
Watford shared six
first-half goals ? with
four in seven hectic
minutes ? to warm up
the chilly Dorset night.
Recalled Hornets
captain Troy Deeney
scored twice and
terrorised the home
defence all evening.
But Eddie Howe
celebrated his 10th
anniversary of taking
the Bournemouth job
by seeing his injury-hit
side record their first
draw since October
after nine defeats in
11 games. And only the
brilliance of Ben Foster
after the break denied
the Cherries victory.
Howe said: ?We went
2-0 down and it looked
like a big ask but fair
play to the players. It
was the ability to never
give up and we should
have won the game in
the end.
?We had chances and
they didn?t have many,
but they took them. It
was a frustrating
second half because we
should have won. We
went all out to win but
it?s another point
closer to where we
want to be.?
The draw moved
Watford up to eighth in
search of their highest
Premier League finish
? and they were denied
an injury-time penalty
when substitute Tom
Cleverley?s shot hit the
hand of Nathan Ake.
Watford manager
Javi Gracia said: ?I?m a
little disappointed
because after scoring
three goals we have
lost a good chance to
win. It?s not easy to
score three goals away
from home.
?We had to defend
better. We competed
well and we were
looking for victory until
the end. Maybe if it
could have worked
differently but we kept
working.?
Watford took the
lead with a fine team
goal after 14 minutes,

as Deeney headed in
Ken Sema?s cross. The
striker then doubled
his account 13 minutes
later when he pounced
on a loose ball.
But the Cherries
were soon level after a
chaotic end to the
opening period.
In the 34th minute
Fraser floated a
free-kick to the back
post and, after Foster
saved, Ake eventually
nodded home. Three
minutes later another
set-piece from the
Scotland star saw
England striker Callum
Wilson head into the
top corner.
The Hornets
reclaimed the lead
barely a minute later
when Sema volleyed
home his first goal for
the club after Deeney
had caused more chaos
in the hosts? rearguard.
And to cap off a wild
seven minutes, Junior
Stanislas crossed and
both strikers dummied
to allow the unmarked
Fraser to sweep home
on the back post
All told the first half
saw nine shots on
target ? and produced
six goals.
Inevitably the pace
dropped off after the
break as Foster denied
both Bournemouth
strikers. Wilson soon
met another Fraser
free-kick only for
Foster to claw away his
header, before the
keeper blocked Joshua
King?s fierce shot to
preserve a point.
BURNLEY
capitalised
on Town defender Chris
Schindler?s memory loss
as this cross-Pennines
battle finished with two
red cards and three
points for the Clarets.
Schindler walked for a second
bookable offence in the first half
of a high-octane but poorquality match after appearing
not to realise he had earlier
received a first yellow.
It proved the pivotal moment
of the contest after a second
card for pulling down Dwight
McNeil.
Against 10 men, a patient
Burnley took a slow but firm
grip, with Ashley Barnes?s calm
second-half finish eventually
separating the two sides.
Even a late red for Burnley?s
Robbie Brady after a reckless
challenge on Isaac Mbenza
came too late to avoid a fourth
straight home defeat for Town,
the first time since 1934-35.
It was an eight defeat in a row
which left Huddersfield manager
David Wagner accepting his side

now face a huge battle to stay in
the Premier League.
?We know statistically no
team has stayed up with 10
points after 21 games but we
have beaten statistics before,?
said Wagner.
?This is exactly what makes it
so exciting to beat the statistics
? to be the first to do something
nobody else has done before.
?We have lost eight games in a
row. But the commitment the
players show is absolutely there.
I don?t have the feeling that I
have to convince anybody. But if
you see how narrow everything
is [in the table], every game you
can change it.?
Victory gave Burnley some
breathing space after a dismal
run ? lifting them two points
away from the relegation places.
Burnley had emerged from a
miserable festive period with
some much -needed momentum
after taking three vital points
from a tense encounter against
West Ham at Turf Moor on
Sunday.
There had been no such
lightening of the gloom in this
part of West Yorkshire -match
tailspin which stretches back to
November.
It was no surprise then that
there was little composure or
quality in the opening exchanges
given what was at stake for both
sides but neither appeared to
have the ball under any sort of
control, the only shot on target
from Mounie barely reaching
Tom Heaton let alone troubling
him.
As the opening period wore
on both carved out a few
openings and it was Huddersfield
who got their noses in front just
after the half-hour mark.
Mounie has not scored since
May but rose well between Ben
Mee and Charlie Taylor to
glance home a cross from

AGAIN:
Wood, far right,
gets the equaliser

lasted just seven minutes,
Burnley levelling through Wood
? his seventh against the Terriers
? after McNeil capitalised on
some indecision from Florent
Hadergjonaj and squared for
the striker to calmly slot home
from six yards.
One minute later Schindler
got his second yellow of the
night. Not that he knew it,
arguing with referee Mike Dean
who could clearly be seen telling
him: ?I?ve booked you already!?
The dismissal left the home
side reshaping but it took
Burnley some time to break
them down.
As time wore on Burnley
started to make better use of
the
extra
manpower
as
Huddersfield became stretched.
Sean Dyche decision to switch
the tiring McNeil with Robbie
Brady brought dividends on an
already stretched left side of the
pitch.
Pressure had been building
and was eventually rewarded
when
Wood
and
Ashley
Westwood combined to put
Barnes clear on goal after 74
minutes, the striker making no
mistake from 13 yards out.
Brady?s reckless challenge
on Mbenza on 90 minutes rules
him out for three matches which
is a blow but a second victory
and a climb out of the
bottom three will do much to
soothe it.

TOO LATE Christian
Pulisic, there?s no way
to turn back now.
To be fair to Chelsea, they
have signed the �million
man from Dortmund to
freshen up a squad that ?
regardless of what happens
this season ? looks to have
reached the end of its cycle.
No wonder some home
fans booed at the final
whistle. Chelsea are going
backwards.
If Pulisic was following
this in Germany, he would
have probably turned over
to watch the local version of
The Apprentice instead.
Chelsea manager Maurizio
Sarri said: ?We had four or
five goal opportunities but
sometimes if you want to
have a lot of opportunities
you have to score the first
goal.
?We did not move the ball
very well and we need to
improve. We were playing
without important players
like Pedro, Willian after 30
minutes, Callum HudsonOdoi was out. On the bench I
only had one offensive player
(Ruben) Loftus-Cheek and
he is not very well at the
moment with back trouble.?
It is a long time since
Stamford Bridge has been
so quiet. The Chelsea faithful
had so little to shout about
you could, at times, hear the
players on the pitch.
Following his arrival in the
summer,
Sarri
initially
banished
the
misery
the club had been plunged
into under Antonio Conte.
An 18-match undefeated
run in all competitions,
between
August
and
November,
generated
genuine belief that Chelsea
could even launch a surprise
title challenge. Those heady
days are long gone.
This month they surely
have to bite the bullet and
bring in a new striker. Eden
Hazard is their top scorer in
the Premier League with 10
goals this season. No other
Chelsea player features in
the top 20. Remarkable.
Hazard?s shoulders must
be aching from carrying the
team.
Chelsea?s
biggest
chances here came from his
boot. After 33 minutes

in a Sarri state
Antonio Rudiger?s ball over
the top found the winger in
space and Angus Gunn ?
making his league debut ?
took one in the face.
In the 57th minute, Gunn
stood up to Hazard again,
this time parrying a drive
from outside the box. Two
minutes later a ball over the
top from David Luiz almost
released the Belgian again.
Where was Alvaro Morata
all this time, I hear you ask?
Largely anonymous, would
be the reply. To be fair,
Morata did have a couple of
efforts on goal. When he did
eventually get the ball in the
net, in the 70th minute,
he
was
controversially
flagged offside.
This was all too easy for a
fragile Southampton team
who were there for the
taking. Instead the visitors
started to fancy their own
chances with Danny Ings
heading over, and livewire
Stuart Armstrong forcing
Kepa Arrizabalaga into a
save after half-time. With the
clock running down, the
Matthew
Harding
end
implored the home side to
find
something
from
somewhere. Chelsea simply
could not respond and
Southampton were able to
keep their first clean sheet in
11 games.
Ralph Hasenhuttl and his
men had to survive an injurytime penalty shout when
Marcos Alonso went over in
the box. It should have been
given. But, in truth, victory
would have flattered Chelsea.
Manager Hasenhuttl said:
?It was very hard work. But
we deserved a point.?

ago. Pulisic, who joined
Dortmund as a youth
player in 2015 and
has made more than
100 appearances for
the club, could arrive
at Stamford Bridge as a
title winner, with his
team now leading the
Bundesliga by six points.
Dortmund described
the deal as ?extremely
lucrative ? given the low
contract maturity?. The
youngster was due to
become a free agent at
the end of next season.
Pulisic said of his
move: ?It?s a privilege to
have signed for such a
legendary club.?
His arrival will not be
the end of the comings
and goings, with Cesc
Fabregas expected to
play his last game for
Chelsea against
Nottingham Forest in
the FA Cup on Saturday
before joining Thierry
Henry at Monaco.
Gary Cahill is close to
a switch to Fulham while
Danny Drinkwater has
been made available.
The club are also
putting pressure on
top scorer Eden Hazard
to decide his future,
with Real Madrid
believed to be waiting
in the wings.

Ayew gives
Hodgson a
table place
ROY HODGSON is
now even more
convinced his Palace
side are in a false
position in the table.
Palace staged a late,
late show to upset a
Wolves side who have
been the talk of the
town just lately.
Wins over Tottenham
and Chelsea had seen
the newly-promoted
side up on the verge of
the top six but Jordan
Ayew took the wind
out of their sails with
an 83rd-minute goal
and Palace sealed the
points with a Luka
Milivojevic penalty
right on the whistle.
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 I think we?ve
proved that with this
result.

excellent form so to

in Ayew for Jeff
Schlupp and saw it
give him a bumper
pay-off. Ayew was on
the spot to ram the
ball home from eight
yards as Palace finally
made the
breakthrough.
As the game seemed
to be fading to a
goalless stalemate,
Ayew stepped up and
put a whole new look
on it.
Zaha ? who else ?
was involved and that?s
just as well because he
is 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 will point to an
invaluable assist in the
lead-up to Ayew?s
decisive late strike.
Zaha had already
sparked a game of
AYEW BEAUTY: Jordan Ayew slots the opening goal
pleasing.? Palace
certainly do need goals
? but they will not be
coming from
Liverpool?s Dominic
Solanke, who has seen
a proposed loan deal
fall through. A muscle
problem appears to be
the stumbling block.
Hodgson confirmed
the club had decided
not to proceed with a
move for the striker,
saying there were
?complications.?
But on the pitch,
there was reason to
celebrate. Star man
Wilfried Zaha might
have forgotten how to
score, but Palace will
not be worrying about
that too much.
Ayew, himself
without a goal this
season, celebrated his
recall to the Palace
side by breaking the
deadlock.
Then Palace added a
second with the very
last kick ? a Milivojevic
penalty after Zaha had
been sent tumbling by
Ryan Bennett.
Hodgson only made
one change ? bringing

ping-pong in the
Wolves box.
But when the ball
came back out to him,
he played it to Patrick
Van Aanholt, who sent
the ball towards the
edge of the six-yard
box where Ayew was
lurking.
He was calmness
personified, steering a
shot into the net with
his left foot.
Then, with the
referee set to blow the
final whistle, Zaha was
sent tumbling in the
box by Bennett for a
spot-kick. Milivojevic
stepped up and made
no mistake.

Four cheers
OLE Gunnar Solskjaer
racked up his fourth
consecutive win as boss
and matched United
legend Sir Matt Busby.
Busby was the only manager
to win his first four games
in charge ? 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, who was teed up by
another sub, Alexis Sanchez,
clinched
the
points
and
condemned
Newcastle
to
another
nervy
relegation
battle.
The Red Devils now have
Arsenal, and the top four, in
their sights.
And soon the debate will
start over whether Solskjaer
deserves to stay in charge
beyond this season.

previous three games after

visitors were shackled until the
64th minute, but cut loose.
Lukaku smashed home his
eighth of the season, reacting
quickest to a fumble by
Newcastle goalkeeper Martin
Dubravka.
The breakthrough was hard
won, as United toiled against
mass defensive ranks and little
space.
But it was Solskjaer?s 63rdminute substitutions which
shook the game out of its
stalemate with Lukaku coming
on with Sanchez.
Rashford lined up a free-kick
from 30 yards and drove it
down the middle of the goal.
Dubravka failed to hold the
palm-stinger, spilling the ball
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.
Newcastle manager Rafa
Benitez tries to grind out
points against sides with
vastly
superior
playing
resources to his own current
squad, but it rarely works.
This was one of those nights,
as Newcastle banked up behind
the ball, allowing Manchester
possession for long periods ?
and firing off the occasional
warning on the counter-attack.
It
is
doubtful
whether
Mourinho?s lacklustre version
of United would have broken
Newcastle down. But Solskjaer?s
version has a freshness and a
zest which won through.
Benitez did not have the
tools to add to his four wins
against Manchester United
with three different English
clubs ? two when he was at
Liverpool, one at Chelsea and
Newcastle?s win in this fixture
last season.
This was not the rampant,
fizzing Manchester United of
the first three games of
Solskjaer?s
interim
reign.
However, they were in charge
but for the odd Magpies
counter-attack.
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 Manchester
United defence three times,
forcing saves from David
De Gea to lift the home side.
There were signs of the
sloppiness Manchester United
thought they had eliminated
from
their
game
since
Mourinho?s departure, when
Phil Jones?s clumsy touch
played in Salomon Rondon.
The defender mopped up with
an excellent covering tackle.

But the visitors probed with
neat exchanges and Paul Pogba
went close from 18 yards.
Newcastle were clinging to
parity
with
spirit
and
aggression.
But half-time came and
then Solskjaer?s substitutions
changed the game.
Rashford was a bright spark,
worrying the home side with
his pace. His cut-back ended in
a shot over the bar as United
struggled to create clear-cut
chances. But Lukaku nipped
in, Rashford?s moment would
come, and United finished as
comfortable winners.

Benitez: We deserved more
FROM BACK PAGE
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
games need to be won.
?The performance
was really
professional, really
solid. To come here
with the fans they
have got, it was
really excellent.?
The result keeps
alive Manchester United?s
slim hopes of a top-four finish
after they looked all over under
predecessor Jose Mourinho.
Victory earns Solskjaer a
place in the record books
alongside Busby to bridge a
72-year gap.
Newcastle are crashing
towards 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 still
remaining.
And they will require a
dramatic upturn to avoid
displacing the 2012-13 squad,
who lost nine times on home
soil. A clanger by goalkeeper
Martin Dubravka gift-wrapped
Manchester United?s opener,
scored by 63rd-minute
substitute Lukaku.
?It?s a pity after all that effort
the team put in we concede a
goal like that,? said Toon
manager Rafa Benitez, left.
?We have to be disappointed
in the way we lost.
?If the other team is doing
much better, fair enough but we
made a mistake to concede a
goal and then conceded another
in a counter-attack. For
85 minutes of the game,
we deserved something.?
Benitez insists the poor home
form is an overriding concern,
adding: ?We made a mistake
and paid a price for that.?

WEST HAM needed an
injection of life and
Manuel Pellegrini had
new signing Samir
Nasri available after his
doping ban and on the
bench.
But 2-0 down and
with a frantic Premier
League game to chase
was not the gentle
reintroduction to
English football
Pellegrini had in mind
for the Frenchman.
So instead he turned
to Mark Noble and
Michail Antonio, who
combined with Marko
Arnautovic to revive
the Hammers.
Pellegrini?s men were
trailing to two goals in
two minutes from
corners, scored by Dale
Stephens and then
Shane Duffy.
But just when
Brighton were thinking
about celebrating a
fourth straight win
against West Ham and
just a fifth on the road
since their top-flight
return, Noble, Antonio
and Arnautovic
intervened. Pellegrini

Andy Carroll was
handed his first start
for a year but was
brought off at half-time
in a pre-planned
substitution, despite
him also taking a
whack to the head
from Lewis Dunk that
left him needing
stitches above his eye.
And the game
exploded into life in
Carroll?s absence.
Brighton took a 56thminute lead when
Lukasz Fabianski could
only palm a corner
down straight to
Stephens, who volleyed
home.
Two minutes later
Brighton got a second
when Pascal Gross?s
corner drifted to the
far post and Duffy
turned it in as he fell.
Pellegrini?s response
was to chuck on Noble

said: ?We know that
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, continued fighting
and the subs changed
the face of the game.
?Nasri can play 15, 20
minutes and my
intention was to use
him but the way the
game was it was a risk
but I?m sure he will be
a decisive player.
?I?m very
disappointed about the
result but very happy
with the spirit.?
The return to the
scoresheet of
Arnautovic was
another reminder of his
talismanic qualities
and another plus for
Pellegrini.
The Austrian?s goals
were his first since
November 3 and his
return from missing
most of last month
with a hamstring
injury. ?He has been
injured so he is full of
63rd minute and their
impact was almost
instant.
Noble?s ball over the
top led to the first
which Arnautovic
forced in after holding
off Duffy.
Two minutes later,
Noble combined with
Antonio down the right
and he bamboozled
and bullied Bernardo
before crossing for
Arnautovic to stab in
the equaliser.
Brighton boss Chris
Hughton said: ?It?s
hugely disappointing
because, the level of
team that we are, away
points are going to be
more difficult to get
than home points.?

KEY BATTLES AT THE ETIHAD
VAN DIJK v AGUERO
IN WITH A
SHOUT:
Van Dijk will be
aiming to shut
down Aguero,
right, with the
striker boasting
an impressive
record against
Liverpool at
the Etihad
Getting the Liverpool defender out of his comfort zone will not
be easy but Aguero has to try to give him a working over even if
it means just a 60-minute shift. Aguero has never got the better
of the ex-Southampton man in six meetings but has scored
against Liverpool in each of his six league games at the Etihad.
ALISSON v EDERSON
The Brazilian sweeper keepers, below, go head-to-head but it
is with hands and heads they need to be on song. Alisson has
12 clean sheets to Ederson?s eight yet both have made two
errors leading to goals in the current campaign. City?s keeper
must resist the tendency to dive at feet, having conceded two
penalties this season.
SALAH v DANILO
Benjamin Mendy?s continuing injury troubles and
Fabian Delph?s suspension for a red card on Boxing
Day mean that Pep Guardiola could go with Danilo at
left-back as Oleksandr Zinchenko has failed to
impress in his defensive duties. The other option for
the City manager is to go with a three-man back line
with Aymeric Laporte ?lling in. Regardless, Mo Salah
will be rubbing his hands at the prospect.

MIDFIELD BATTLE ZONE
City have been able to ?eld their ?rst-choice mid?eld of
Fernandinho, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne, above, just
once this season [a 3-0 win away to Shakhtar Donetsk] but
the trio look set to play against Liverpool, which could see
the battle swing City?s way in the middle third.

danger
of
being
framed
as
the
gunslingers? final shoot-out
arriving halfway through
the blockbuster, but Pep
Guardiola promises there
will be plenty of twists in
the plot still to come after
tonight?s showdown.
The Manchester City manager
assembled his players before
training yesterday and told them,
whatever happens at the Etihad
tonight, they must keep applying
pressure to title rivals Liverpool in
the belief the Reds will crack at
some stage from now to May.
It was a conclusion, he
conceded, that drew on a degree
of optimism but it is also one

?There

this
season,
even
Liverpool,
because there are a lot
of competitions,? he said.
?Everyone is going to play
the last third of the season with
all the big targets and every game
will be more tough.
?After 29 years not winning the
Premier League, to be there to win
it, I understand [the pressure]. I
can feel what they feel, the
Liverpool players. And I said to the
players, that?s difficult to handle.
?That is why in this season it is
important to maintain that for as
far as possible.?
Guardiola is well aware of
the size of City?s task, both in
the table, where they trail by
seven points after three
losses in their past five topflight matches, and against
a rival in Jurgen Klopp
whose style seems close
to Kryptonite.

?Liverpool can punish any
