furious that Nelson
Mandela House is to
be flattened to make
way for yuppie flats.
Harlech Tower,
which depicted the
Trotters’ home, will
be replaced by
upmarket pads.
But one fan
fumed: “It should be

High Street snubbed
over same old deals
® by ANTONY THROWER
BARGAIN hunters are being turned off by January
sales because they have
already bagged offers on
Black Friday and preChristmas deals.
Traditionally, browsers hit the
shops as the new year arrives.
But people on London’s Oxford
Street revealed yesterday they are
snubbing shops as many stores had
the same deals available before Christmas.
Others were left
frustrated as the only
clothes left were in
extreme sizes such as
XS or XXXL.
Shopper Katie Casey
said: “Black Friday
deals were available
almost all of the way
through
December
and they’re the same
now.
“That’s why the
High Streets aren’t as
busy today as they
would have been. There’s nothing
new in the sale we couldn’t get
before Christmas.”
Pal Caroline Samuels, visiting
from Cambridge, said: “They’re
certainly not what they used to be.
“I bought something online in
the sale and later got an email
saying it was out of stock. But
then it appeared in store at its
full price. It’s not on.”
In several stores visited by
the Daily Star yesterday, rails
were full of clothes available in
sizes not likely to fit the average
man or woman.
Despite there being hundreds of

people about, few were holding
shopping bags.
Londoner Noor Bouagal, out with
pals Jeffrey Diaz and Sara Gouz,
added: “I shop online. Most shops
are running out of what I’m after,
just jeans and the like.”
Linda McAlister, who was in
London to take in a West End
show with daughter Sarah, said: “I
just feel that the sales have been on
for so long now and that’s why it’s
not busy.
“You can see it’s different shopping in the January sales than it
once was.”

Meanwhile, the EU has
confirmed “no further

“concluded”.
A spokesman for EU

admitted
speedboat killer Jack Shepherd could be “anywhere” in
the world after they failed to
confiscate his passport.
The 31-year-old fugitive drunkenly
flipped his speedboat on the River
Thames while showing off to date
Charlotte Brown, 24.

He later fled while on bail and has been
on the run for four months after being
® by OLIVER PRITCHARD
jailed for six years in his absence for Charlotte’s manslaughter by gross negligence.
Last night Scotland Yard admitted they
had “no tangible trace” of the web designer, from Paddington, despite him being in
touch with his lawyers.
Met chiefs said it was working with the
National Crime Agency to track the thug
down – and feared he could be abroad.
It emerged that Shepherd had been granted £100,000 of taxpayers’
money to mount an appeal
against
his
conviction
despite being on the run.
The cash has been handed
to Tuckers Solicitors which
has been in contact with
Shepherd but says it does
not know where he is.
The firm will now get even
more legal aid having successfully argued the killer
is entitled to an appeal under the European Convention on Human Rights.
Under client confidentiality rules they do not have to
help police find him.

He sped past the Houses

flipped over.
Despite being rescued the
coward didn’t help Charlotte and she died after being pulled from the water.
Shepherd is also wanted

WILDLIFE expert Chris
Packham has offered
himself help to stop foxes
being torn to pieces.
The Springwatch
presenter suggested he run
through Hampshire’s New
Forest pursued by hunting
hounds rather than them
following a pre-laid scent.
Chris urged his local
hunt, the New Forest
Hounds, to switch to drag
hunting, which involves
dogs tracking either a
human runner or chemical
scent. However, the
250-year-old hunt group
declined his offer.
Labour outlawed hunting
foxes with dogs in 2004.
Chris, 57, visited the
hunt at Linwood, near
Ringwood, Hants, on New
Year’s Day, to appeal for
a change in its rules.
He said: “Fox hunting
is a highly emotive activity
which has no place
in the contemporary
environment.
“Foxes are being torn
to pieces in people’s
front gardens and pets
are being chased.
“We have to make
peaceful, democratic
progress in ending this
practice. There’s no place
for this savagery in 21st
century Britain.”

One law
for us all
SNOBBERY is rampant in our
justice system.
In our book, a criminal is a criminal.
But in courts up and down the
country, it appears some more
well-to-do defendants are getting an
easier ride.
Judge David Hale spared drug
dealer students Luke Rance and
Brandon Kerrison from jail after praising their “grammar and punctuation”
in texts selling dope.
He said he did not want to “fetter the
prospects” of either man.
Hang on a minute.
There can’t be different sets of rules
for different backgrounds.
It shouldn’t matter a jot how well
educated a criminal is.
They’ve been found guilty and the
punishment must fit the crime.
If anything, the pair have fewer
excuses.
They have been given opportunities
in life and are in education.
Many who end up leading a life of
crime are less fortunate.
And everyone deserves to be
treated the same.

fall back on missing

our family and friends or –
worse still – covering the costs
using our credit cards.
The amount you should save will

money planning.

NETFLIX last night urged fans not to take
part in a dangerous online challenge
inspired by its horror film Bird Box.
In the post-apocalyptic movie Sandra Bullock’s
character and her children wear blindfolds to avoid
seeing mysterious creatures who cause people to
kill themselves.
But idiots have taken to social media to take on the
so-called Bird Box Challenge, risking their lives for “likes”
by carrying out day-to-day
tasks blindfolded.
Some are doing mundane
activities such as eating
dinner and combing hair.
But others have filmed
themselves falling down
escalators and stairs.
In extreme videos blindfolded morons are seen
driving cars, running into
traffic and shooting guns.
A POLICE

told they can’t take
a holiday for a month

‘GOOD GRAMMAR’: Dealers Kerrison, left, and Rance
TWO drug dealers were
spared jail after a judge
was impressed by the
“high” standard of spelling in their texts.
Luke Rance, 19, and Brandon
Kerrison, 21, were caught in
possession of weed.
Police found messages on their
phones advertising their drugs
and arranging deals using perfect English.
One message from Kerrison
said: “Mad flavours from 10
tonight – let me know for more
details.”
Judge David Hale said the
“grammar and punctuation” in
their exchanges illustrated a
much higher standard of education than normally seen from
dope sellers.
Kerrison is studying construction and Rance is due to start a
degree later this year, Swansea
Crown Court heard.
Judge Hale said he did not want
to “fetter the prospects” of either
man by sending them to jail.
Instead they were handed community orders with 100 hours of
unpaid work.
Kerrison, who was smoking a
joint when police approached,
® by JACK ANDREWS
fled but returned a short time
later, while Rance stayed put.
Rance was found to have
seven bags of cannabis in a rucksack along with a small quantity
of cocaine.
Kerrison had two bags of cannabis and a mobile phone.
Rance, of Swansea, admitted
possession of cannabis with
intent to supply and possession
of cocaine.
Kerrison, also of Swansea,
admitted possession of cannabis
with intent.
Judge Hale told the pair that at
first “cannabis may be an experiment that you find pleasurable”
but warned it can have serious
consequences.
He also said: “I hope a court
never sees either of you again.”
Judge Hale previously gave
what was seen as a lenient sentence to a woman convicted of
having sex with a boy of 13.
He imposed an 18-month suspended sentence on the woman –
Jordon Lightfoot, 21, of Rhyl,
Denbighshire – with 50 days of

He vowed to clear his

and the manner in which
they were made and I
categorically refute them.
“I fully expect to return
to my coaching role and
have sought legal advice
as to my position.”
It is alleged Bellamy
made anti-English gestures
or remarks to the player,
Alfie Madden, who was
removed from the club
by his parents.
His dad, David Madden,
an ex-Crystal Palace player,
said his son became
“desperately unhappy”

arm themselves with clipboards
and calculators as they prepare to
count the park’s thousands of animals
in its annual stocktake.
The keepers care for more than 600
different species and every one of the
mammals, birds, reptiles and
invertebrates has to be accounted for.
Animal operations manager
Angela Ryan said: “With more
than 19,000 animals to count, our
keepers all have their own ways of
tallying up. It always makes for a busy
start to the year.”

JUNGLE STAR DJ IAIN
STANDS BY HIS MAN
® by TIM BAKER
A SUICIDAL man who was
saved by Iain Lee live on
radio has revealed he still
wants to take his life.
Known only as Chris, the troubled 50-year-old phoned the I’m A

update on his wellbeing.
Despite Iain helping to save his life,
Chris said he still sees ending his life
Troubled victim still haunted by death
as the way to escape his demons. Iain
advised Chris to get help for his

He said: “Don’t die. Take care

He told the DJ he had taken an
A FOUNDER of the

ASAP Mob has avoided jail
for sexual assault.
ASAP Bari, real name
Jabari Shelton, 27, from
New York, was fined £4,000
and told to pay £2,500 to his
victim after he admitted
assaulting her at The
Curtain Hotel in
Shoreditch, east London.
Sentencing him, Judge
Zoe Smith QC said Shelton
had a “very unpleasant
attitude” towards women
after she was shown
footage of him pulling the
covers from the naked
woman as she lay in bed,
before slapping her bottom
as she told him to stop.
He attacked her in the
early hours of July 10, 2017
after they both attended
the Wireless Festival in
Finsbury Park.
Shelton, who had been
expected to plead not
guilty, admitted one count
of sexual assault against
the woman, who cannot be
named, when he appeared
at the Old Bailey.
He was initially arrested
last year but bailed in June
after he paid £5,000 to allow
him to return to the US.
Shelton was also told to
pay £2,000 costs and he
has been banned from
contacting the woman.

day. Nearly a year after I’d joined
Slimming World and 8st lighter, I
was at the playground with Albert
when, without a second thought, I
raced up a climbing frame. It was
only as I got to the top and looked
down at my little boy, giggling away, I
realised I’d become the mum I wanted my son to have.
My confidence had truly grown in
every aspect of my life.
And, when I told Mum I was applying for a nursing degree at the
University of Wolverhampton, her
exact words were: ‘Finally!’
Now as I look back on the old,
unhappy me, I don’t get upset or sad
– instead I feel grateful that the real
me has made an appearance.
AS TOLD TO MICHELLE
RAWLINS

WELCOME TO MARWEN (12A)
ROBERT Zemeckis has been pushing at the boundaries of cinema
for years.
:ifjjifX[j
]fi[iXdXj
The 66-year-old director is at it again with
Welcome To Marwen, a wildly original
film that marries cutting-edge animation
with live action.
You won’t have seen anything quite like the
bizarre motion-capture sequences in his film
about Mark Hogancamp.
And I doubt you have ever met anyone like
Steve Carell’s version of the artist.
If you’ve seen Jeff Malmberg’s awardwinning 2010 documentary, you’ll
know how Hogancamp was beaten into a coma after confessing
he was a secret cross-dresser.
Hogancamp
turned
his
trauma into a form of art, by
shooting a series of photographs set in a doll-sized
World War Two Belgian town
called Marwencol.
In the pictures, he was represented by an Action Man
called Hogie, five Nazi soldiers represented his attackers and Barbie dolls stood in
for the women who had
helped his recovery.
Here a motion-captured
Carell is reborn as Captain
Hogie, who is protected from
Nazis by a gang of armed
and very scantily-clad dolls
who look and sound like
actresses Janelle Monáe,
Merritt Wever, inset with
Carell, Eiza González, Leslie
Mann and Diane Kruger.
The action is grim but the
dialogue is peppered with
wisecracks and the action
plays like a spoof of a war
movie. We get scenes of
Carell’s live action Mark
fretting about attending the
trial of his attackers.
Plastic Mark gets involved
in all sorts of scrapes, but
the flesh and blood version
is curiously lifeless.
For the film to pack an
emotional punch we have to
be on his side.
But when Mann’s bighearted Nicol knocks on his
door, you want to tell her to
run a mile.

RBG (PG) „„„„
IN February, we’ll hear a lot
more about US Supreme Court
justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
when period drama On The
Basis Of Sex hits the cinemas.
Starring Felicity Jones, it is a
powerful but traditional biopic
about her trail-blazing 1970s
legal cases that helped end sex
discrimination in America.
Here, filmmakers Julie Cohen
and Betsy West keep stylistic
flourishes to a minimum and
let their subject do the talking.
The judge’s current notoriety
comes as a dissenting voice
within the Supreme Court.
“She’s like a cyborg,” says her
personal trainer in one of the
film’s fascinating interviews.

THIS cleverly crafted,
visually inventive
thriller (nearly all
played out on computer
screens, mobile etc)
stars John Cho, right,
as David, a Californian
grieving for the wife
he’s lost to cancer and
determined to stay
strong for their
daughter, 16-year-old
Margot (Michelle La).
David’s wish is a
forlorn one, it seems,
because his fragile
world is turned upside
down for a second
time when Margot
disappears. With hours
passing and the police
appearing to make little
progress, he searches
for clues closer to home
by logging on to
Margot’s laptop. What
he discovers reveals
a whole new side to his
daughter’s life.

(Netflix Original) „„„
HUMOUR is an
international language,
right? In some respects,
certainly. Here’s a
LIFE ITSELF (15) „„
THIS painfully pretentious drama, which subscribers of Sky’s movie package can also suffer at home,
is divided into four “chapters” and tells different
stories that intersect at a car accident.
Antonio Banderas plays the stepfather of a Spanish boy who witnesses the tragedy, Oscar Isaac is a
grieving widower, Annette Bening is his therapist
and Olivia Cooke is the victim’s daughter.
Writer-director Ben Fogleman made his name
penning family films for Disney and Pixar. But he
seems to have come a long way from festive comedy
Fred Clause and dog animation Bolt.
His eureka moment is revealed about halfway
through this meandering, time-jumping drama.
Olivia’s Wilde’s supposedly clever university student is writing an essay on “unreliable narrators”
(think Kevin Spacey in The Usual Suspects) when
she comes across what she thinks is a fresh angle.
“Life itself is the ultimate unreliable narrator!”
she shrieks to her heroically tolerant boyfriend
(Isaac).
Fogelman’s big idea, which every writer who has
ever used this device knows already, is that we all lie
to ourselves as we try to make ourselves the heroes
of our own life stories.
Banderas’s section is by far the best. He is so good
as a troubled Andalusian olive farmer, Fogelman
just lets him get on with it.
The other strands are so over-written you can
almost hear the clickety-clack of his keyboard.
The identity of this film’s narrator is only revealed
at the long-awaited ending. She’s reliably irritating.

CUCKOO
HOLLYWOOD star Andie
MacDowell admits she was
shocked when the BBC
asked her to join their hit
comedy.
The Four Weddings
actress, 60, is replacing
Twilight hunk Taylor
Lautner as “the American
guest” in the show, which
includes Greg Davies
and Tyger Drew-Honey
among its cast.
But Andie joked: “Taylor
was fantastic. Such a smart
choice and intimidating
to follow.
“The world loves young
men and they hired an old
lady! I had to bust my ass!
“I like Cuckoo as there
is nothing else like it
out there.”

tonight on BBC One at
11.25pm and is also online
on BBC Three.

Whovians want Tom

Now the must-have
TV fashion accessory
seems to be Vera’s hat!
Fans are going mad
for Brenda Blethyn’s
headgear that she
wears in the ITV drama
as DCI Vera Stanhope.
There is a market
stall in Newcastle
– where some of the
show’s scenes are
filmed – that sells them.
Brenda said: “I take
my hat off for that!
They told me they do a
roaring trade.”

The hacker and tech whizz – who
has helped his friend DCI John Luther

shot dead by a hitman.
However, on top of fans’ anger over the
murder, it seems Michael wasn’t happy with
the way he bowed out of the show either.
The Irish actor wanted a completely different – and funnier – exit for Benny.
When asked about how he would have wanted to see Benny leave the action, he said: “He

LOVE ISLAND
REMEMBER those naughty Alberti twins who
caused a storm in series one of Love Island
back in 2015?
Italian brothers John and Tony claimed they
didn’t fancy any of the girls.
And they called the lads “desperate”.
Not surprisingly, the TV duo didn’t find love
and didn’t last long on the ITV2 show.
But now they hope to have discovered a recipe
for success with a brand new venture.
The hunks have launched themselves into the
world of cookery.
In addition to having their own show on
YouTube they are releasing a cook book

WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY ****
(2014) BBC2, 10.50pm David Tennant
and Rosamund Pike play bickering parents
who take their kids to the Scottish Highlands to
celebrate what their terminally ill grandad (a
wonderful Billy Connolly) suspects will be his
last birthday. The comedy and the tragedy are
deftly balanced but really impresses is how we
see everything from the children’s perspective.
As we drop down a couple of feet, it’s the adult
world that needs to grow up.
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET *****
(2013) More4, 9pm Leonardo DiCaprio is
magnificent in Martin Scorsese’s shocking but
hilarious true-crime drama about Jordan
Belfort, a pill-popping, sex-obsessed conman
who swindled millions from investors in 1990s
New York. He’s ably served by a hilarious Jonah
Hill, who plays his sleazy sidekick Donnie.

WHEN asked what my
biggest TV wishes were for
2019, there was one that stood out
above the rest. “I wish there were
more opportunities,” I replied,
“for Bobby Davro, Joe Swash,
Cheryl Baker, Stephen Bailey and
Michelle Collins to appear on
the same show at the same time,
ideally a five-part series in which,
for no apparent reason, they all go
camping together in Dorset.”
And guess what? The TV gods
have smiled on me. CELEBRITY
FIVE GO CAMPING starts at
8pm tonight on Channel 5.
Are you as thrilled as I am?
You can’t possibly be.
ALSO tonight we have
the final part of BILLY
CONNOLLY: MADE IN
SCOTLAND (9pm, BBC2),
continuing this look at the life and
career of Britain’s all-time funniest
comedian (yes, he is, don’t argue).
Billy takes particular delight in
reminding us that one of his most
famous routines, about having
had to wear knitted swimming
trunks as a kid, was no mere
figment of his imagination.
OTHER comedy highlights
tonight include the return of
Greg Davies in series five of the
excellent CUCKOO (11.25pm,
BBC1), plus a guest appearance
■
from Romesh Ranganathan in
JAMIE AND JIMMY’S FRIDAY
NIGHT FEAST (8pm, Channel 4),
a key element of the comedy here
being that Romesh is a vegan,
and vegan food isn’t known for
making Jamie and Jimmy cry:
“Ooh, yummy, our favourite…”.
FINALLY, TOP OF THE
POPS: THE STORY OF
1987 (9pm, BBC4) looks at a year
when Maggie Thatcher won a third
General Election and when many
Brits woke one October morning
to find a tree had mysteriously
crashed through their ceiling.

JUST JANE
I’m haunted by
wicked parents
JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES
YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY
... AND EVERY DAY
It’s too
late for
a date
Debt is
tearing
us apart
A GUY at work has
been flirting with me
for over a year.
I’ve never taken him
seriously – always
thought he was a bit
of a joke.
But now I’ve heard
that he’s leaving our
firm and I’ve suddenly
woken up. He’s lovely!
He’s good looking,
kind and funny. I’ve
allowed him to slip
through my fingers.
What kind of blind
idiot am I?
Once we were on a
training weekend with
our bosses and he
asked if I’d like to go
for a walk with him in
the grounds.
I’m so ashamed to
say that I was very
rude to him. I told him
he was being boring
and that I preferred to
stay at the bar getting
smashed.
I now realise that he
was probably going to
tell me that he liked
me and ask me out.
Now I’ve heard
through the grapevine
that he’s (possibly)
moving to Scotland in
March or April and
I’m heartbroken.
How could I have
been so blind?
A COUPLE of years ago my
partner came to me in
floods of tears.
She had allowed her
shopping habit to spiral out
of control and secretly run
up enormous loans, plus
credit and store card debts.
We sold our house and
downsized. We managed to
clear most of our debts.
Today we’re more settled,
although our margins are
very tight. My partner is
working full-time and we’re
both on a budget, but she
continues to be angry and
defensive regarding money.
I believe we need to be
able to work together and
talk about our problems.
I have never blamed her,
yet she continues to act as
if she’s the victim in all of
this mess.
There is, sometimes, so
much resentment between
us we can barely function.
I suggested a period
apart, but she won’t
co-operate. I do love her
and do accept that she lost
her way for a while, but
I don’t know how much
longer I can go on like this.
Picture posed by models
JANE SAYS: Rumours
are not good enough,
you have to get this guy
on his own and find
out if he’s definitely
leaving – and why.
If the reality is that he
IS in love with you but is
bailing out because he
feels rejected, then you
have to come clean
about your true feelings.
Ask him if he fancies
going for a drink or
coffee. You may be able
to change his mind.
If you and he were
never meant to be, then
you’ll just have to learn
from any mistakes and
look out for the signs
an admirer might be
putting out a lot more
keenly in future.
JUNKIES
RUINED
MY LIFE
I CAN’T get over my horrible childhood and it’s
ruining my adult life.
When my husband talks
about Christmas and birthdays he enjoyed as a child
and teenager, he remembers
gifts, parties, cakes and, above
all, lots of love.
All my sister and I ever got was
fear and cold. We were terrified
of our parents who drank, took
drugs and only ever cared about
themselves.
I only have to shut my eyes and I
am immediately transported back
to the grotty flats I used to call
home. We moved around all the
time to escape the landlords and
debt collectors that our father
always owed money to.
Cruel
I can distinctly remember my
seventh birthday because a kindly neighbour gave me a couple of
Jaffa Cakes and a can of Coke.
The food was like nectar to me
and I couldn’t believe that anyone
could be so generous and so kind.
Frequently we did not have
enough to eat. My sister suffered
from asthma and eczema and I
was highly nervous.
Occasionally, we were farmed
out to our dad’s mother, but she
wasn’t much better. She was as
disapproving, cold and cruel as
my mum and dad were negligent
and selfish.
I left home as soon as I could
and lived with a school friend’s
family until I was 21. Then I
moved in with a partner who was
abusive and violent.
Finally, I found a decent job, met
my lovely husband and the rest,
CHILDHOOD HORRORS: She just can’t appreciate what she’s got after a cruel upbringing
as they say, is history. Today I
have a beautiful home, great
friends and every creature comfort imaginable, only I can’t turn
my brain off. I’m looking for closure and peace, but I can’t find it.
How do I stop my mind from
whirling so fast that I can finally
calm down, appreciate what I
have and live in the moment?
My head is always in the past. I
know this upsets my husband.
Why can’t I be grateful for today?
JANE SAYS: Stop suffering in
silence and make an appointment
to see your GP. You need to de-
scribe what you’re going through,
so that you can be directed to the
appropriate medical professional.
It’s tragic and very regrettable
that your early life was so blighted, but you can’t allow your past
to determine your future.
You have so many good years in
front of you, so much still to see
and achieve.
There is no shame in admitting
that you need extra help – and
seeking it.
Have your selfish parents ever
given you any answers as to
why they thought that acting like
a pair of idiots was appropriate?

JANE SAYS: This is so
tough, but it’s important to
stay calm and keep talking
to your partner.
Remind her you are
a team and that all
relationships go through
difficult times. There is no
shame in sharing worries.
Not all of us are good with
money and bills, and if
you’re happy to take on the
full responsibility of sorting
out the paperwork from
now on, then there’s no
loss of pride on her part.
Tell her you admire her
work ethic and love her as
a person, but she’s not
perfect and you don’t
expect her to be.
You can visit Relate on
your own, you don’t have
to have your partner with
you and you may find
talking to a trained third
party helps put everything
into perspective.

Holiday love
ignores plea
ON the last night of my holiday in September I met an
amazing guy. We drank and danced and had the most
fantastic night of sex – the best of my life.
He lives miles away but I still think we could be lovers.
Yet whenever I text he takes days to respond and any time
I suggest getting together he always has an excuse. What
more can I do?
JANE SAYS: The reality is that you and he were together for
one, special night, four months ago. If you’ve not seen him
since, then you have to conclude that he has his own life
to live – one that doesn’t include you.
Let this go, because I worry that you’re in danger of
becoming a nuisance. I understand that you simply want
to be together, but if he starts to accuse you of harassment,
then your life will be ruined.

A WELL-paid career opportunity is on the way.
Do research. What kind of people will you be
working with and in what type of environment? If the extra
work might take you away from your desired industry,
remember that money isn’t all that matters.
YOUR boss might seek your opinion about
a difficult job. They may not say it in so many
words but they value your knowledge. If it becomes
obvious they are relying on your advice, don’t be afraid
to ask for a higher salary based on your true worth.

if they don’t understand, put some space between you.

CAR OF THE YEAR
Kia e-Niro
WHEN it goes on sale here on April 1
lucky buyers of the Kia e-Niro will be
anything but April Fools.
It’s a well made, good looking, hugely
equipped and quick electric car with a
mileage range that catapults it into the
real, rather than the imaginary, world.
Here’s what I said: “The startling shock
as it silently bullets from 0-62mph in
7.7s is, well, electric. Step inside its
luxury feel interior and you can’t fail to
be impressed.”
Runner-up the Renault Zoe Dynamique
doesn’t have the same speed or luxury
as the e-Niro but it comes near to
matching it in terms of range and is
almost half the price.
WINNER: Kia e-Niro, top speed 104mph,

Kia Stinger
GT-S
SHORT-listed for last year’s
European Car of the Year, I
was amazed the stunning
Kia Stinger finished fourth
behind the Seat Ibiza,
BMW 5 Series
and winner the
Volvo XC40.
I’m not saying
the judges
never actually
got round to
driving it, but
I did say this:
“Sorry, but I
just don’t
get it. It’s
incredibly
luxurious,
has got
pretty
much every
gadget that’s ever
been invented, yet image
obsessed snobs are
spending twice as much
because they think they
look better in car parks.
No wonder I call them
badge berks.”
Runner-up the mighty
Lexus LC 500 is a
spectacular V8 in every
way. You only have to
look at it to see that it’s a
classic footballer’s car.
WINNER: Kia Stinger
GT-S, 168mph, 4.9s.
£40,535.
RUNNER-UP: Lexus LC
500, 168mph, 4.4s. £76,595.

CARS YEAR
OF
THE
FAST AND FUN
EVERY year
■
Christmas plays its
magic all over the world
and every year I follow
that with some sorcery
of my own... my annual
MAGIC awards, which
this year stands for
Make A Great
International Car.
This year’s winner
is exactly that. It’s
a car that should
kickstart the global
clean-up that the planet
so desperately needs,
it’s the absolutely eyeopening Kia e-Niro.
Say goodbye to
never ending
noise and breathing
polluted air and
hello to silence
and clean living,
because the e-Niro
does exactly that.
It’s a breath of fresh
air, literally.
Runner-up, the
Renault Zoe, is
another car that is
setting standards,
with a driving range
that makes it a car
that’s just as good
for long journeys as
it is practical for
short trips. Even so,
it’s a massive well done
to both companies.
Ford Fiesta ST-3
NAILED on to be Car of the Year, until I
was woken up to a new world by the
Kia e-Niro, the 2018 Fiesta ST brings a
different meaning to the word fun. It is
simply astonishing.
After a week spent driving around
with a huge grin on my face I wrote:
“It’s so good, so well equipped, so
fast, so well priced and so fuel
efficient that it could well end up
being 2018’s Car of the Year.”
Trouble is, times move on. Picking
a car powered by fossil fuel is nigh
on impossible these days.
Runner-up the Toyota Yaris
GRMN (Gazoo Racing Meisters of
Nurburgring) is, if anything,
slightly more fun, but as
European production was limited
to 400, with the UK getting 100,
it’s as rare as rocking horse poo
so can’t be named the winner.
WINNER: Ford Fiesta ST-3 3dr,
144mph, 6.5s. £21,495.
RUNNER-UP: Toyota Yaris
GRMN, 143mph (ltd), 6.4s.
£26,295.
COMMENDED: Suzuki Swift
Sport 1.4, 130mph, 8.1s. £17,999.

WINNER
WINNER
IF you really don’t care about
planet Earth and just want to
look and feel good, nothing
does it better than a
Mercedes Benz AMG G 63.
Its Jeep-style wagon looks
attract attention like nothing
else while its colossal
585hp 4.0-litre twin
turbo V8 turns it into
a giant rocket.
Here’s what I
said: “Floor the
throttle and it
sounds like a
nuclear explosion.

smooth and pampering it’s

RUNNER-UP
QUIET, petrol sipping and
startlingly fuel efficient the
little Nissan Micra is a
modern miracle.
Here’s what I said after
taking a 450-mile drive from
Essex to Macclesfield
and back: “I may as
well have taken a
limo for all the
difference it
made in comfort,
noise and ride
quality.
“Its 900cc
engine is certainly
not stressed. The ride
is never upset and the seats
are astonishingly comfy.”
Runner-up The VW Up is
more fun than I ever
imagined. I said: “Its 115hp
engine with 200Nm (147lb)
of torque catapults it from
being Mum’s gentle
shopping trolley into a
classic pocket rocket.
WINNER: Nissan Micra
Tekna, 109mph, 12.1s.

CARS YEAR
OF
THE
SPACE RACE
WINNER
SsangYong Turismo 2.2 ELX auto
IF you’re in the market for loads of space
it means that you’ve probably got lots of
kids, so money is likely to be high up in
your list of priorities.
That’s why the SsangYong Turismo
walks away with this title.
You get so much car for the money it’s
fantastic value.
Here’s what I said: “With seven seats,
stacks of interior space and loads of kit
as standard it’s more like a luxury
caravan than a car. I loved it.”
Runner-up the vast Citroën
SpaceTourer lives up to its name. It
actually has eight seats, all big enough
for adults.
WINNER: SsangYong Turismo 2.2 ELX
auto, 116mph, 14.0s. £27,745.
RUNNER-UP: Citroën SpaceTourer Rip
Curl 150. 114mph, 11.0s. £38,730.
COMMENDED: Lexus RX450h L
Premier, 112mph, 8.0s. £61,995.
RUNNER-UP
SUV CLASS ACTS
LIKE the Turismo, the Dacia Duster is an
easy choice for this title thanks to being
not just good, but astonishing value.
Here’s what I said: “Put me down as
being more than impressed. It’s
absolutely brilliant.
“There’s nothing cheap about this
cheap car. No wonder Dacia call it
shockingly affordable.”
Runner-up the Skoda Karoq is
beautifully built, has a variable space
boot and is remarkably fuel efficient.
WINNER: Dacia Duster Comfort SCe
115, 107mph, 10.7s. £13,195.
RUNNER-UP: Skoda Karoq SE L,
116mph, 10.6s. £23,170.

2.20
Wetherby – CLARENDON
STREET (treble) ran a race
full of promise on his hurdling debut when
runner-up to stable companion Birchdale at
Warwick. The third Johnbb has come out
and won since and the form looks solid.
Although Kingofthecotswolds and Redzor
have decent form, they will struggle to topple
Nicky Henderson’s six-year-old.
3.50
Kempton – UNFORGIVING
MINUTE (nb) won a claimer
on his stable debut for Paul D’Arcy and
escapes a penalty. Once rated in the 100s,
BEST EACH WAY
SIX STRINGS (2.45 Kempton) is
better than the bare form suggests
and could run into a place at a
decent price.

Kempton – On ratings, DEEP
INTRIGUE (nap) has quite a
bit to find with Charming Kid – 13lb in fact.
But Mark Johnston’s colt looks a big
improver judged on his victory at Chelmsford
in December. Sunsprite will go close if he
takes to the surface while You Never can
Tell and No Nonsense also have claims.

SAVOUR
Young rider hurt
in Southwell fall
TWO leading Grand National hopes will
try to get their seasons back on track
later this month.
Lucinda Russell’s 2017 Aintree hero, One For Arthur,
and Sue Smith’s Vintage Clouds could clash in the Peter
Marsh Chase on January 19.
One For Arthur only got as far as the third fence in the
Many Clouds Chase over the Mildmay course last month
after being sidelined through injury since his National
triumph.
He is also entered in the Classic Chase at Warwick a
week tomorrow but Russell says that marathon contest,
which he also won in 2017, may come too quickly.
Should that three-mile five-furlong handicap come too
soon, the 10-year-old could head to Haydock.
She said: “He cantered a couple of times on Wednesday.
We kept him going over Christmas and new year. We’re
getting a little bit tight for the Warwick race now.
“I don’t know whether he’ll go there or whether he might
now go to Haydock instead. We’re just going to get him
back as best we can.”

dual Classic-winning trainer Bill
Elsey who has died aged 97.
The Yorkshire handler trained Pia
to win the Oaks in 1967 and Peleid
to win the St Leger in 1973.
They were the highlights of a
career which started when he took over the
licence from his father Charles at Highfield
Stables in Malton in 1961.
LEWIS EDMUNDS was
taken to hospital for
precautionary checks and
X-rays on his left
collarbone following a fall
from the fatally-injured
Razin’ Hell at Southwell.
The apprentice (below),
who recently lost his
claim, was unshipped
when Razin’ Hell, trained
by his grandfather John
Balding, came down over
a furlong out in the
Betway Sprint Handicap
over five furlongs.
“Lewis has gone
to hospital with
a suspected
broken
collarbone.
He’s gone to
Bassetlaw to
get it
checked out,”
said Balding.
The
Doncaster-based
handler said he had
never lost a horse in
action before.
“It’s racing but it’s the
first horse I’ve lost in my
life,” he said.
“In all my years riding,
working for my dad
(Arthur) and training, I’ve
never gone home without
my horse. You don’t know
what it feels like.
“I’m gutted but as long
as the kid is all right.”
Razin’ Hell won eight of
his 50 races and earned
£48,000 in prize money.

Meanwhile, Next
Destination, a 10-1 fancy
for the RSA Chase, has
been ruled out for the
season by trainer Willie
Mullins.
A dual Grade One
winner as a novice
hurdler last season, the
Malcolm Denmark-owned
six-year-old has yet to
run over fences.
Mullins said: “Next
Destination has had
a setback and
while it isn’t a
serious
problem
we’ve
decided to
treat him
and leave
him alone
until next
season when
he will go
chasing.”
The son of Dubai
Destination won the
Grade One Lawlor’s of
Naas Novice Hurdle over
2m4f a year ago and the
Grade One Irish Daily
Mirror Novice Hurdle
over 3m at the
Punchestown Festival in
April.
He suffered his only
defeat when finishing
third behind Samcro
in the Ballymore
Novices’ Hurdle at the
Cheltenham Festival.

BOXING
JAMES DeGALE says
his super-middleweight
clash with Chris Eubank
Jnr is a retirement fight
for the loser.
The British rivals meet in a
non-title contest at London’s O2
Arena on February 23.
Eubank Jnr, 29, has previously
fallen short against Billy Joe
Saunders and George Groves.
He has recruited a trainer for
the first time in his 29-fight
professional career in Nate
Vazquez, who works alongside
Floyd Mayweather.
But DeGale, 32, feels careers are
on the line next month, saying:
“After he has lost to me I’m not
sure where he is going to go.
“Call this a retirement fight.
Whoever loses can knock it on the
head. Whoever loses, game over.
“A lot of people think I am in
decline but they are in for a
shock. And he’s deluded because
he thinks he beat Groves and
Edmund’s

■ TENNIS
KYLE EDMUND has
vowed to win his fight to
be fit for the Australian
Open.
The British No.1 is
struggling with a knee
injury and is battling to
make the opening Grand
Slam of the year, which
starts in Melbourne on
January 14.
Edmund said: “I need
to focus on my preparations for the Australian
Open and do everything
I can to be fit.”

DeGale plans to send Chris

Saunders, and me in sparring. I
have sparred him, I know what
he is like and I have watched
him lose. He is all talk.
“He is too arrogant and ignorant to change or listen to anyone
but himself. Have you seen him
in the corner between rounds
with his dad and his trainer
Ronnie Davies?
“It’s pathetic and bizarre and
a new coach will make no
difference.”

2017 but won it back in an rematch four months later with
Caleb Truax.
He gave up his world title after
deciding to vacate rather than
defend his IBF super-middleweight belt against mandatory
challenger Jose Uzcategui.
Cashing
DeGale insists he did so only on
the promise that he will challenge for world honours again
before he retires – and is not chasing a final payday here.
He added: “Everyone thinks
this is my last fight and that I
3

am just cashing out. It’s annoying me.
“I gave up my title because my
adviser, Al Haymon, told me who
I was fighting and how much I
was getting and it was annoying.
“Then, two days later, he came
back and said, ‘I have someone
better for you, I have Eubank’.
“It’s for much more money
and I had to give up my title
but I said yes. And he has promised me another title shot
before the end of my career.
“It’s a difficult one, knowing
what to do after boxing, but I’m
going to f*** Eubank up first and
then I’m probably going to beat
George Groves and call it a day.
That would be perfect.
“Or I could beat Eubank and
then have another shot at a world
title and then knock it on the
head.”

Chelsea........ 2
Nottm Forest . 0
THIS COULD have been one of the ties
of the round had it been played at the
City Ground.
But despite Forest’s impressive win
over Championship leaders Leeds on
New Year’s Day, it will be Chelsea in the
hat for round four.
And the way their luck goes with the
draw, no doubt they will come out of the
hat first again.
2
Derby .......... 2
Southampton . 1
A GAME between a club wanting to go
up and one that just wants to stay up.
I’m taking the Championship side to
edge this one because they are likely to
ring the changes a little less drastically
than their Premier League opponents.
Promotion may be the Rams’ priority
but with FA Cup specialist Frank
Lampard in charge, don’t rule out a
decent run in the competition to help
boost confidence.
3
Everton ....... 3
Lincoln......... 0
THIS is another one which would have
been much tastier had the underdogs
been on home soil.
Everton have been so bad lately that
a few will still see this as a potential
shock, with Lincoln top of League Two.
Not me though. There’s far too much
talent in Everton’s ranks and Marco
Silva could use the game as a chance
to give a few of his first-teamers the
chance to regain some form.
4
Aston Villa ... 3
Swansea ...... 1
VILLA score goals, concede goals, win
impressively, lose tamely.
In other words, they are the perfect
cup side.
They may lack consistency to win
promotion this season but Dean Smith’s
side love to attack and could be a dark
horse this year.
And against a Swansea outfit who
never keep clean sheets, this looks a
home banker.
5
Gillingham .... 1
Cardiff ......... 0
NOW here’s one which could produce
a shock result.
Neil Warnock is certain to pick a side
virtually unrecognisable from the one
which has been on Premier League duty
over the festive period.
He will be desperate to give his
front-line stars a rest and won’t care a
jot if Cardiff are bundled out of the
competition by a side who are League
One also-rans this season.

celebrating their
National League
play-off final win
at Wembley
We’d have been in a bit of bother if we
didn’t get promoted.
“It was getting tougher to attract
players to get out of the league
because every year we didn’t get
promoted other teams were picking
off our best players.
“We were getting smaller as a
business every year we weren’t in the
Football League and we were losing
players and staff.
“I was aware that would have had to
happen again if we didn’t win, but we
don’t have to think about that now.”

MICKY MELLON reckons it
is party time at Tranmere
tonight.
The Rovers boss wants to celebrate
the resurrection of a League Two
club that was in danger of going out
of business by knocking Tottenham
out of the FA Cup.
“Friday night is party night in
Birkenhead and now it has a football
game in the middle of it to add to
the spice,” said Mellon, ahead of the
third-round clash.
Respect
Excited
“We have absolutely nothing to lose.
I think it’s the first time since we played
Liverpool that the ground will be full.
It will be fantastic to be involved.
“We are excited and I don’t want
to contain that excitement. We are
playing Tottenham and if you can’t be
excited about that, why are we doing
what we are doing?”
There have been tough times at
Tranmere, with the very real prospect
of the club slipping off the football
map altogether, so Mellon is relishing
both the £1m windfall and the
spotlight the visit of a Premier League
giant will bring. “It’s about the club
showing the whole football world
Tranmere is still here,” he said.
“We disappeared off the Football
League radar for a while and when
you have three years out of the
league, you can lose generations of
fans. You can stop being a big
football club.”
Mellon is not exaggerating when he
says Rovers could have fallen into

Now the Gillingham boss

He was still a Gills player

He added: “All I have done

oblivion and he chuckles when he
thinks about last season’s National
League play-off final against Boreham Wood, when Tranmere had Liam
Ridehalgh sent off in the first minute
but still went on to win 2-1.
“After 48 seconds of a play-off final
when you go down to 10 men, that’s
pressure,” he said.
“Your football life flashes before

Title-chasing Spurs boss Mauricio
Pochettino is not putting too much
emphasis on a big cup run.
He said: “If my ambition in Spurs
is only win the Carabao Cup or FA
Cup, with all the respect for that,
my ambition does not match the
ambition of a club like Tottenham.
“Sometimes people take it wrong,
my words. ‘Oh the manager doesn’t
want to win the FA Cup or disrespects
the competition the Carabao Cup or
FA Cup.’ No, no, no, no, no.
“It is the opposite. I respect a lot. But
my ambition is to win the Champions
League one day or the Premier League
with Tottenham.”

Fears
“Unfortunately that goal affected
the whole game and I apologise for
that.”
Newcastle fans have united to send
an open letter to owner Mike Ashley
pleading with him to back Benitez in
this month’s transfer window.
With hopes of an imminent takeover fading, Ashley is unlikely to have
his wish for a £300m sell-off granted
any time soon.
That has raised fears that he will
keep the chequebook firmly closed,
despite Newcastle being the Premier
League’s lowest net spenders over the
past three seasons.
Benitez is desperate for reinforcements, claiming it would take “a
miracle” for the Magpies to survive.
His side are just two points above the
drop zone with a nightmare schedule
ahead of them.
And fans are alarmed at a potential
double whammy of relegation and
Benitez walking away when his
contract runs out at the end of the
season.
They have called off protests –
inside and outside St James’ Park –
while there is the possibility of a
takeover. Now they’ve written to
Ashley telling him the ongoing
takeover “cannot be used as an excuse
not to spend money”.
In the letter, they claim failing
to do so would be “reckless and
foolish given the damage you know
relegation would do”.
The fans’ groups, which include the
Mag fanzine, The Magpie Group,
Newcastle United Supporters’ Trust
and True Faith fanzine, confirm there
will be no anti-Ashley protests while
hopes of a takeover remain.
And they close the letter telling him:
“We hope it happens but if it does not,
you have to protect your own longterm interests and we ask you to do
what is right for the supporters too.
“We want Benitez to stay and we
want to stay in the Premier League.
You have the power to make that
happen.”

CHELSEA will reject

But Sarri does not

But the midfielder said:
“To be honest, I don’t

“When I saw we were

decided, ‘Don’t think
about it, go game by
game’. That’s what we did.
“At least that’s what I
did and things are going
well so I don’t want to
change.
“If we continue
this run, we will
be closer to the
top four but it’s
not something
that kills my
mind right now.”
United’s win at
St James’ Park was
only their third clean
sheet this season.
And no-one was more
delighted than goalkeeper
David De Gea.
“We wanted to make
David happy because he

Fighting City have Klopp on canvas
■
LEVEL BEST:
Roberto Firmino
enjoys his equaliser
IT’S THAT long since Liverpool
last won the league title that
Mike Tyson was heavyweight
champion of the world.
That was until that fateful night three
decades ago next month when he lost to
Buster Douglas in one of the biggest upsets
in boxing history.
Tyson just never saw the sledgehammer
coming – and it left the American legend
out for the count and seeing stars.
When Jurgen Klopp’s men wake up this
morning they will know how Tyson felt.
For Douglas read Leroy Sane, who
delivered the knockout punch here to
leave the Reds on the canvas after
tasting their first defeat of the season.
It was Sane’s seventh goal of the season.
And to think, he wasn’t even deemed good
enough to make a German World Cup
squad that came home humiliated after the
group stages in Russia last summer.
Sane’s diagonal drive on 72 minutes was
like a dagger through the heart of a Reds
side that had battled back to draw level and
looked capable of going on to win.
Ripped
Had this happened, then Klopp’s side
would have been 10 points ahead and have
one hand on a trophy that has never taken
pride of place in the famous Anfield trophy
room.
Tyson never recovered from being floored
against the odds and the question now is
how will the league leaders react to this
setback in the weeks to come as the finishing line appears on the horizon?
The title isn’t won in January, of course,
but it can be lost and would have been
ripped from Manchester City’s grasp had
Pep Guardiola’s men succumbed to defeat
on a frantic and fascinating night at the
Etihad.
For once, neutrals owe a huge debt of
gratitude to the richest club in the world
for making the title race interesting
again.
Klopp will be hoping this result is nothing
more serious than a flesh wound.
But there is no escaping the fact that a
club of Liverpool’s undoubted stature have
CROSSY’S
BIG-MATCH
VERDICT
not carried the scars of domestic failure
well since 1990. The weight of history has
weighed heavy on them – and now it is
threatening to repeat itself.
The pain of 2014 remains raw. On April 20
that season, the Reds were nine points clear
under Brendan Rodgers.
Then came that slip from Steven Gerrard
against Chelsea. Three weeks later, City
lifted the Premier League trophy.
Those memories of failure will feel even
fresher now as the wagons begin to circle
around a team with little or no experience
of getting over the line first.
The Reds began 2019 with a seven-point
lead at the top – and no team has ever
failed to go on and win the title after
heading into the new year so far ahead.
There is no need for Klopp to panic. His
side were good value for long spells of this
game and, with more luck, might have won.
The secret will be found in not letting the
burdens of the past shape their immediate
future.
It remains to be seen if Klopp has the
talents to achieve this and time will give us
the answer.
But what we do know is that City have
the well-earned luxury of title-winning
experience in spades.
They used it to dig themselves out of a
deep hole here and maintain their hopes of
becoming the first side since Manchester
United in 2009 to defend their crown.
This was Guardiola’s 100th win in charge
of the champions – and none will have
tasted sweeter.
At this rate he might have to lift his ban
on fizzy drinks, because it will take a brave
man to bet against them opening the
champagne come May.

so we will have a look.
“For my kind of football,
for my philosophy, I need
more speed and more
running quality.”
Hasenhuttl also confirmed
midfielder Steven Davis is
closing in on an emotional
return to old club Rangers.
He said: “He has made a
good contribution to this
club. Hopefully it is a win-win
situation for both sides.”
Striker Charlie Austin was
yesterday charged with
making an abusive gesture
after giving Manchester City
fans a two-fingered salute
during Sunday’s 3-1 defeat.

PEP GUARDIOLA had asked
whether Liverpool had the
bottle to win the club’s
first title for 29 years.
Now we will find out, after his
Manchester City side inflicted a first
league defeat of the season on Jurgen
Klopp’s rampant Reds to blow the title
race wide open.
City’s stunning win has closed the
gap on Liverpool to just four points,
with Klopp and his players now able
to feel the breath of the champions on
their necks.
On a pulsating night at the Etihad
Stadium, City reminded the football
world just why they are champions,
despite their recent blips, and showed
Liverpool just why this absorbing
title race is far from over.
A win here would have seen Klopp’s
side open up a seemingly unassailable
nine-point lead at the top of the table

had inflicted more defeats on him
than any other manager.
The Liverpool boss had lost just
one of their past eight meetings,
while holding a 7-5 lead over his
rival in their head-to-head going
into their latest encounter.
Rebound
and a 10-point advantage over City.
Now, after a first league defeat of a
remarkable campaign, comes the real
test for Liverpool.
Can they recover from this setback
or will the weight of history and
expectation prove too much for them?
The answers will come in the
weeks and months ahead, but one
thing is certain – City are not giving up their status as champions
without a fight to the finish.
In what effectively amounted to a
must-win game for City, Guardiola
will not have needed reminding Klopp
The game exploded into life in the
18th minute after a sublime move
from the visitors ended with Sadio
Mane’s shot coming back off a post –
before the real slapstick began.
John Stones was first to the loose
ball and cleared it, only for his effort
to rebound off City keeper Ederson
and send it spinning back towards
his own goal.
Stones somehow managed to
scramble back and clear the ball at
the second attempt, before it crossed
the line, with the goal-decision
technology confirming the call by the

that lived up to its billing.
Sadio Mane hit the post and
City defender John Stones
cleared off his own line –
with the goal-line system
denying Liverpool the lead
by just 11 millimetres.
Klopp added: “We were
unlucky in our finishing
moments. Unluckier than
City I would say.
“But I have so much faith
in my players you cannot
imagine. In the end we lost
and we have to take it. It is
not the first game we lost in
our lives.”
Kompany insisted City
played with pure emotion to
breathe life into the race.
He said: “We went toe to
toe with a very aggressive
team and we matched
them.
“It’s still in Liverpool’s
hands. It came from our
guts, a desire you can’t
describe.
“We are a better team
when
we
play
with
emotions.”
City chief Pep Guardiola
saluted the heart shown by
his players and admitted
his side’s title hopes had
been on the line.
He said: “The gap is still
four points, which is enough
points to be calm, but I have
to say congratulations to
these incredible players.
“They showed their heart
to everyone in Europe.
“We knew that it was a
final today – if we lose it is
almost over.
“All credit to these incredible players. That is how we
have to play in the Champions League. We were not
scared, we had no fear and
we had a lot of pressure.
“They are leaders, it is
four points, but we have
reduced the gap. We knew
that if we won, we would be
in contention to fight for the
Premier League. If we lose,
it is over.”
HOW
THEY
RATED
MAN CITY (4-3-3)
EDERSON ................................ 5
Bad early panic almost cost a goal –
and panic on his part later too.
DANILO ................................... 7
Strong in the tackle on the right and
big influence in subduing Mane.
JOHN STONES ........................ 8
Brilliant clearance off the line and
showed his quality on a tough night.
VINCENT KOMPANY ................ 6
Lucky not to be sent off for wild
challenge on Salah but led well.
AYMERIC LAPORTE ................. 6
Out of position on the left but fought
hard to not look out of place.
FERNANDINHO ........................ 8
Man of the match. Brings so much to
City’s midfield and a huge influence
on the team.
RAHEEM STERLING ................. 6
Seemed quiet against his old club
and struggled to get into the game.
BERNARDO SILVA ................... 7
Incredible work-rate to cover so
much ground. Played important role.
DAVID SILVA ........................... 6
City did not get the Spaniard into
game enough but, still, he showed
some lovely touches.
LEROY SANE ........................... 8
His pace was a key weapon and he
used it well to carve holes up front.
SERGIO AGUERO ..................... 7
The striker started well and
caused Liverpool problems – then he
produced a stunning goal.
SUBS:
Ilkay Gundogan (for D Silva, 65); Kyle
Walker (for Laporte, 86); Kompany
(Otamendi, 88).
Unused: Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad
Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Arijanet
Muric.
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3)
ALISSON ................................. 6
Will be disappointed to be beaten at
his near post but not to blame.
TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD . 6
Struggled a bit early on but got into
game more when Fabinho came on.
DEJAN LOVREN....................... 6
Booked. Not his best night and
slightly at fault for the first-half goal.
VIRGIL VAN DIJK .................... 8
Colossal again in leading his team. A
powerful display.
ANDY ROBERTSON.................. 7
Another who struggled early on but
when the Reds changed formation
he came into it.
GEORGINIO WIJNALDUM ........ 6
most slender of margins. City received
another slice of fortune on the half
hour when Vincent Kompany took out
Mo Salah with a two-footed lunge in
trying to retrieve a pass from Stones.
The City skipper was cautioned, but
replays confirmed he was lucky not to
be shown a straight red.
The hosts’ breakthrough came just
five minutes before half-time, Sergio
Aguero getting to Bernardo Silva’s
cross ahead of Dejan Lovren and taking a touch before arrowing the ball
high into the net from a tight angle.
Liverpool got back on level terms
in the 64th minute after Danilo
missed the ball, allowing Andy
Robertson to turn it back across the
City goal for Roberto Firmino to
score with a diving header.
But the Blues restored their lead
eight minutes later as Raheem Sterling
surged forward before finding Leroy
Sane, who drilled an unstoppable shot
past Alisson and in off his far post.
Sane’s goal proved the decisive
moment, with Liverpool unable to
find a way back for a second time,
reigniting a thrilling title race.
Crossy’s verdict: Pages 44-45
Booked. Actually looked a little tired
in early exchanges but came into it
well.
■
KOP RECOVERY:
Roberto Firmino
dives in to head the
Liverpool equaliser
JORDAN HENDERSON ............. 7
Big display at heart of midfield and
kept side in it when they struggled.
JAMES MILNER ....................... 6
Not an easy night in the face of
ferocious pace but ran his heart out.
MO SALAH............................... 6
Not a night for the Egyptian’s silky
skills but you could tell that City
feared him.
ROBERTO FIRMINO ................. 7
His movement was outstanding and
deserved his goal for work-rate.
SADIO MANE ........................... 7
Not his best, seemed to get too
caught up in the frenzy of it all.
SUBS:
Fabinho (for Milner, 57); Xherdan
Shaqiri (for Mane, 77); Daniel
Sturridge (Wijnaldum, 86).
Unused: Naby Keita, Alberto
Moreno, Adam Lallana, Simon
Mignolet.
REFEREE: Anthony Taylor – 6.

LEROY SANE blew the title
race wide open last night.
Sane’s 72nd-minute winner ended Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the season and
fired Manchester City back into contention.
But Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was fuming
that City captain Vincent Kompany avoided a red card for an ugly first-half lunge
on Mo Salah as he saw his side’s lead cut to
four points.
Kompany was booked by ref Anthony
Taylor in a key moment in the top-of-thetable clash but Klopp said: “I really like

has proved he is good
enough to land the
Manchester United job,
according to former
team-mate John O’Shea.
The Norwegian
caretaker boss equalled
the record of Old
Trafford legend Sir Matt
Busby on Wednesday
after notching up his
fourth win from his first
four games in charge.
Asked after beating
Newcastle 2-0 if he
would be leaving in May
as planned, Solskjaer
said: “I don’t want to.”
And O’Shea reckons
the former striker is
making a strong case to
be given the job on a
permanent basis.
He said: “Why can’t he
be the next permanent
manager?
“Especially if he keeps
that sort of run going,
and gets success in the
Premier League and
Champions League.
“If he keeps it up, he
will be putting himself
as a front-runner for the
job. He will want to carry
on that momentum, and
will definitely be under
consideration.
“He has equalled a
United record, four wins
from the first four starts
– he’s not had a bad
beginning, has he?
“It has been incredible.
It is a hell of an
impression, to get the

Vincent Kompany, but how on earth is that
not a red card?
“He’s last man and he goes in. If he
hits Mo more he is out for the season.
It’s not easy for the ref and he may not
see it how I see it.”
Sergio Aguero’s ferocious opener was
cancelled out by Roberto Firmino’s second-half header before Sane’s moment of
magic settled a pulsating game.
But it could have been different as the
champions rode their luck in a feisty clash
