T’ball: 03 BBC hit by ‘last post’ rap THE BBC has been hit with 113 complaints over its “disrespectful” Remembrance Day two-minute silence. Viewers were outraged when a presenter spoke over the Last Post, just before the traditional two minutes’ silence. The music, usually blasted out on a bugle, was played as a backing track as a BBC One presenter spoke over it to welcome viewers on November 11. Michael Johnson wrote online: “Throughout the Last Post the female commentator talked non-stop.” Simon Everington blasted: “Disrespectful, ungrateful and rude.” Elvis is king of big day ELVIS Presley has taken top spot in a vote for the UK’s best first dance song at weddings. The King’s Can’t Help Falling In Love ballad from the 1961 movie Blue Hawaii was number one in the chart. It beat modern hits including Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud, Adele’s Make You Feel My Love and John Legend’s All of Me. Gordon Harrison, chief audiologist at Specsavers, which commissioned the research, said: “It’s apparent that music plays a huge part in our lives and is something we associate with key moments and memories.” Chef’s £17k for sacking A chef sacked for taking sick leave while recovering from an ectopic pregnancy has won £17,000 for unfair dismissal. Hannah Pawley felt “used and betrayed” after being fired from Hanley’s Restaurant, Driffield, East Yorks, when she took three weeks off to recover. The restaurant, run by head chef Sean Hanley, refused to pay her the statutory sick leave, a tribunal ruled. Leeds Employment Tribunal, which also found that the employer falsified records, awarded Hannah £12,000 for injury to feelings and an additional £5,000. DS1ST Macron fury at Bozo’s French letter MIGRANTS PLAN BLASTED ■■ by JERRY LAWTON Emmanuel Macron slammed Boris “Bozo” Johnson after the PM published a letter outlining a five-point plan to end the migrant crisis. Bozo offered to send Brit security guards to France to stop migrants taking to the water. He also proposed joint maritime patrols, greater intelligence sharing and the use of ground sensors and radar to detect boat passenger movements. In addition he urged Paris to negotiate a “returns agreement” that would allow the UK to send migrants back to France. But Mr Macron dismissed the proposals as “mediocre” and said they “don’t correspond at all” with previous discussions the pair have had. He added: “We don’t communicate between leaders via tweets or published letters. We are not whistle-blowers.’’ After the letter was published Macron banned Home Secretary Priti Patel from a migrant crisis summit. MPs called it “ridiculous”. Meanwhile Mariam Nouri Hamadameen, left, a 21-yearold Kurdish woman from northern Iraq, is the first of the victims of Wednesday’s tragedy in the Channel to be named. jerry.lawton@dailystar.co.uk Italian job aids green-eyed girl ON THE MOVE: Gula A refugee who ■ shot to fame in the National Geographic has been evacuated to Italy just months after the Taliban reclaimed power in Afghanistan. Sharbat Gula, 49, also known as the iconic green-eyed “Afghan girl”, first gripped the world’s attention after she was featured on the front cover of the magazine, left, in 1985. ■Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s office said: “The Presidency of the Council of Ministers has made this possible, organising for her to travel to Italy as part of the evacuation plans.”

The Line of Duty star and Luther actor play assassins Azure and Swarm on the BBC sci-fi show. Sam said show boss Chris Chibnall got the idea for the duo from watching the news. She explained: “Chris Chibnall talked about a couple of real-life villains. “I can’t say who, but they’re quite scary figures in the high-finance world, powerful people who mix with politicians and high society but with an underbelly of corruption.” GUTTED: Chris & Paddy Fred’s let us down TOP Gear’s Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness were left fuming that Freddie Flintoff could not join them in Iceland. The man they dub “The Monster Muncher” could not help the duo as they had to face an eating trial on the BBC One show. Paddy, 48, and Chris, 46, flew out to test cars but the producers sprung a nasty surprise as they were asked to eat dishes of ram testicles and fermented shark. Freddie was stuck in isolation in the UK. Chris said: “We really needed Fred for that. There was nothing that we enjoyed.” Top Gear is on BBC One tomorrow at 8pm. Dan’s odds on to leave DAN Walker is the bookies’ favourite to leave Strictly this weekend. But the TV host has other ideas and claims he has already won – as he can now perform a routine at the BBC Breakfast Christmas party. Dan said: “I now have the confidence to say: ‘Clear the floor. I’m coming through’.” BBC Breakfast presenter Dan admits before signing up for Strictly, he would make every excuse to avoid the dancefloor. But partner Nadiya Bychkova has made him more self-assured. He said: “I have always been one to stand on the fringes. I always said: ‘I will look after the kids’ or: ‘I need to go to the loo’. Dan added: “Nadiya has changed my perspective on all that now.” Laughter signs ★STRICTLY host Claudia Winkelman has been secretly learning sign language – so that she can bitch about the judges with deaf contestant Rose Ayling-Ellis. Rose, 27, left, who plays Frankie Lewis in EastEnders, has wowed viewers with her dance skills on the dancefloor. ★Claudia, 49, said: “We have all done awareness courses, I’m trying to learn as much sign language as possible – not necessarily to do on screen, but for when I’m communicating with her off air. “The first thing I wanted to learn – although I haven’t needed to use it yet – was how to say: ‘The judges are horrid.’ ★ “But it’s really interesting to find out. For example, she finds it difficult to train when it’s really raining because it messes with the vibrations in her chest. “I said: ‘What do they do in schools?

DS1ST for telly tops for telly DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 5 a Funny turn & i was scoff Madeley fine after health scare and a bacon butty ■■ by PETER DYKE Richard Madeley says he was whisked to hospital after a “funny turn” in the I’m A Celebrity castle. The TV presenter was forced to quit the show when he was taken outside the strict Covid bubble for medical checks. But he confirmed he is “fit as a fiddle” after being given the once-over – and scoffing a bacon butty to ease his hunger pangs. Richard, 65, said: “I had just a funny little turn quite sort of late in the morning. “ITV are so good with duty of care. They said: ‘We have to make sure you’re OK.’ So I went to the local hospital. “I was given really thorough checks and I was given a completely clean bill of health, I’m absolutely fine. I’m fit as a fiddle.” Gutted Richard revealed he was so hungry having lived for so many days on rice and beans that the moment he got the all-clear from doctors he went straight to the hospital canteen. He added: “I had a bacon butty. That was my first port of call – for a bacon butty. And a huge cup of tea, it was amazing.” Although he is fine, Richard could not return to the show as all the other campmates are in a Covid bubble. He said: “I had to leave. I am gutted. But it is a Covid situation. If it wasn’t for that I’d still be in the game.” For the first few days, the Good Morning Britain host was forced to stay in The Clink – the show’s “prison”. He and his fellow “inmates” complained of freezing temperatures, lack of food and having to sleep on the cold ground. Richard added: “It was freezing. We were always cold.” The camp saw a farewell video from him yesterday and Frankie Bridge said: “We’re sad and we miss him.” Richard’s exit is a blow to the show. Thursday’s episode had an average of 5.6 million viewers – half the audience it was getting last year. peter.dyke@dailystar.co.uk Boy, I did it Mum! ■DRESS STRESS: Naughty Boy wins the Creepy Closets trial ★NAUGHTY Boy proved a surprise hit going in and out of the closet on the latest Bushtucker Trial. Viewers voted for the flaky music producer – who keeps threatening to leave – for the nasty challenge. It was called Creepy Closets and he had to enter six rooms to look for stars. However in the closets, he was pelted with critters, fish guts and offal and also had to face flapping birds. ★Naughty Boy got all 11 stars and was thrilled with his success. He said: “Full house! Who would have thought it? The boy became a man. “I can’t leave after 11 stars! I hope my mum’s going to watch this and say: ‘That’s my son.’” RECORDED: The lads A show stopper I’M A Celebrity is a victim of Storm Arwen. ITV chiefs pre-recorded much of last night’s show hours before it was due to air amid safety concerns. They feared the brewing storm could hit the Welsh castle and its satellite link and take them off-air. It’s the first time ever the live show has been stopped. Hosts Ant and Dec recorded their banter in advance and it was added into footage of the campers doing tasks and trials. There was no viewer vote for the Bushtucker Trial and instead the camp itself decided who did it. A show spokesman said: “The castle is secure and we have contingencies in place to cover all weather scenarios.” Arwengeddon: P7 Frankie love fail POP beauty Frankie Bridge has revealed that her footballer husband Wayne didn’t say he “loved her” for a long time. In her self-help book Open, the Saturdays singer wrote that in their early years the former England defender struggled with expressing his feelings. Frankie wrote: “Wayne found it really hard to tell me he loved me for a really long time.”

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 7 FURIOUS: Singer Madge: Instaban is sexist MADONNA has slammed Instagram as “sexist” and “ageist” for banning her raunchy pics. The Queen of Pop blasted the social media site after it took down her pics for exposing a nipple. The singer, 63, had raised eyebrows with x-rated pictures in which she is writhing on top of and under a bed in fishnet tights, a cutout bra, a thong and highheeled shoes. Yesterday she stormed: “It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple. As if that is the only part of a woman’s anatomy that could be sexualized. The nipple that nourishes the baby!” She reposted the snaps with heart emojis covering her breasts.

Storm Arwen battered the UK yesterday with 100mph gusts which prompted a rare red “danger to life” warning as it pasted eastern Scotland and northern England. This bleak scene was captured in Portstewart, Co Londonderry. And in Antrim, Northern Ireland, a man was killed by a falling tree. Yellow wind warnings are in ■ place for the rest of the country today, with snow also possible in central and southern England. Power lines and buildings may be damaged, with roads and rail lines closed and festive markets shut. Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said: “People need to be aware of things like flying debris. And we are talking about wave heights that really are exceptional.” ■SEA SWELL: A lifeboat off Dunbar, East Lothian.

TO BUILDLY GO! ■ ■ by Ethan Blackshaw ELON Musk has doubled down on his plans to build permanent bases on the Moon and Mars. The SpaceX boss has vowed to turn the human race into a “multiplanet species”. And the billionaire reassured fans he is still committed to creating civilisations on other worlds. One supporter tweeted the Tesla chief with a quote of his from April, which read: “It’s been now almost half a century since humans were last on the Moon. “That’s too long, we need to get Musk speeds up bases on the Moon and Mars back there and have a permanent base on the Moon. “And then build a city on Mars to become a space-faring civilisation, a multi-planet species.” Musk replied to the message by simply saying: “Absolutely!” It is not the first time he has made big promises about getting humanity to Mars. He previously pledged it would only take another six years for SpaceX to land people on the Red Planet. Musk is developing the Starship, a reusable spacecraft that he hopes will be able to fly customers to both the Moon and Mars. He is in a billionaire’s space race with rivals Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin and Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic firms. Musk also weighed in after Nasa launched a rocket at a harmless asteroid to see if objects hurtling towards Earth can be knocked off course, tweeting: “Avenge the dinosaurs!!” The space agency’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test is aiming to smash into a large space rock known as Dimorphos in a groundbreaking experiment. The mission will take 10 months to reach its target. news@dailystar.co.uk SPACE RACE: Elon

8 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 Says Get it right on variant SIGH... It feels like we’ve been here before. Approaching Christmas all expectant and hopeful before the wind is taken out of our festive sails by this bloody relentless pandemic. The new supposedly vaccinebusting variant certainly sounds scary. And experts and politicians are doing nothing to talk it down. However, things are a bit different this time. It certainly seems as if they are acting more quickly to shut it down by closing the borders to any affected countries. You would also hope our government has seen this coming and prepared contingencies for it. This, after all, is not their first spin around the block. They should have had time to work out how best to keep cases down. Yes, it is still imperative that we keep people safe. But no-one wants to go back into another lockdown. Let’s just hope to high heaven this all goes away so we can avoid any more serious restrictions. Winging it with gulls YOUR Daily Star loves animals. But they cannot be allowed to run amok. And yes, we are talking about those pesky seagulls. The psychotic flying scumbags have had their way far too long. This time they are making people’s lives in Bath a misery. But instead of trying to sort out the problem for residents and despite warnings over public health, Natural England is effectively saying: “Tough”. That’s absurd. Cities are no place for these birds. And the thieving nuisances cannot be afforded so many rights above the needs of humans. It’s time to ruffle some feathers. Use loaf... TELLY chef Jamie Oliver has admitted he can’t make toast and always burns it. That’s a delicacy in our house! SCATTY CATS GIVE CLAWS FOR CONCERN Atomic kittens DOMESTIC furballs of pet bliss or totally savage? That’s been the raging debate over the years about cats – and yesterday we revealed, right, one boffin’s belief all moggies are a bit crazy. Due to their wildcat savage ancestry, Rebecca Evans from the University of Liverpool said: “It’s likely that all cats have an element of psychopathy.” Testing it out to be sure, KIM CARR gets her claws into 20 crazy feline facts… A house cat’s genetic ● make-up is 95.6% tiger, which explains why they mimic big cats in urine marking, prey stalking and pouncing. Like camels and giraffes, cats move both ● their right feet first then both their left. No other animals walk this way. Males are more likely to ● be left pawed while females are right and they have 18 toes. Cats have an extra organ ● which allows them to taste scents in the air. This is why they’ll often stare at humans open mouthed. ● Their rough tongues are so well ridged that they can lick a bone clean of any shred of meat. ● ● Each cat’s nose print is unique, like human fingerprints. Never stare a cat dead in the eyes unless you want to feel how sharp it’s claws are – they find it threatening. ● The effects of nepetalactone, the chemical in catnip, is similar to giving your cat LSD or marijuana. Grapes and raisins give ● cats kidney failure and onions, garlic and chives can cause anaemia. Most cats are lactose intolerant so drinking milk ● will give them gastric pain. They are particular ● about where they do their business so if you own more than one indoor cat they should have personal litter trays. ● Cats are concerned about looking and feeling their best. They spend a third of their waking hours grooming themselves. ● It’s a hard life – no really – so they sleep for 12 to 16 hours a day, are most active at dawn and dusk and, like us, cats dream. ● As fussy as a toddler over food, if a cat is presented with grub it doesn’t like it will literally rather starve than eat what’s in their bowl. Or hunt mice. They have whiskers on the ● back of their front legs as well as their face to help them feel around which spaces they can fit into. When a cat wants to hunt ● it will extend its whiskers forward. Spaying and neutering a ● cat’s bits off can extend their life as it’s been found that neutered males live 62% longer. ● If a cat approaches you with their tail curled like a question mark, it’s asking if you want to play. ● In a cat faceoff they yawn as a way to end confrontation, in the same we would gesture talking to the hand. ● In 2014 a US family in Portland called police on their cat as it went wild when the baby pulled its tail. The puss went berserk leaving them hiding in the bedroom. It was diagnosed with feline hyperesthesia syndrome and rehomed. DS1ST

ROCKER Sir Rod Stewart was so nervous about singing for the Queen he reckons she thought she might have to do the gig for him. Rod, 76, said: “At a charity event at St James’s Palace about seven years ago I had to sing with a small band for Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh, who were sat 10 yards away. “I’ve never been so nervous. I think she thought she was going to have to come on and sing Do Ya Think I’m Sexy? “Instead, I did five songs from The Great American Songbook. Her face lit up.” The Hot Legs star also claims he is pretty useless around the house and doesn’t know how to cook or operate the TV properly. Rod confessed: “I don’t know how to work the remote control. I can turn the TV on and change the channel, but when it comes to getting all the other things like YouTube, I have to ask the kids. “And I can’t cook. I’m embarrassed by it, but not ashamed of it. A boiled egg? It might be a bit hard.” WORD OF GORMANDIZING... to eat greedily or ravenously – like Monty Python’s Mr Creosote or Charlie’s cocker spaniel! THE DAY Bedside vigil for ‘pig’ dog A dog owner kept a bedside vigil for her “dying” pooch – only to discover he was in a “food coma” after secretly munching treats. Cocker spaniel Spud had helped himself to an entire box of dog biscuits. Owner Charlie Oliver, 28, from Northampton, who spent a day fretting, said: “He was just looking at me with sad eyes, so I was really worried. “I was genuinely panicking. Then I found out he’d just been a greedy pig.” catastrophic ■UNIQUE: Tragic Ava was said to be much-loved at her school MUSICIAN’S BOBBI MURDER RAP A rock guitarist has appeared in court charged with the murder of Bobbi-Anne McLeod. The 18-year-old was last seen waiting at a bus stop in Plymouth seven days ago on her way to meet pals. A body believed to be Bobbi-Anne’s was found seven miles away near a beach at Bovisand on Tuesday. Cody James ■ by JERRY LAWTON, Chief Crime Correspondent Ackland, 24, of indie band Rakuda, appeared before Plymouth Magistrates Court yesterday charged with her murder between November 20 and 23. He was remanded in custody and will appear before the city’s crown court on Monday. CHARGED: Ackland arrives at court TRIBUTES: Flowers at scene. Below, message 4 BOYS HELD AFTER DEATH OF ‘ANGEL’, 12 TRAGIC 12-year-old Ava White suffered “catastrophic” injuries when she was attacked with a knife at a Christmas lights switch-on. Children screamed as passers-by and paramedics battled to save her life after the attack in a busy city centre. Ava was taken to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital with critical injuries, but died a short time later. Four boys – one 13, two 14 and the other 15 – were arrested and quizzed last night on suspicion of murder. Floral tributes were left near the scene yesterday, with one bearing the message: “Rest in peace angel.” Merseyside Assistant Chief Constable Jon Roy said Ava’s parents’ world had been “torn apart”. He said of the incident: “We believe Ava and her friends had been involved in a verbal argument which culminated in Ava being assaulted, causing catastrophic injuries.” Ava was attacked at 8.40pm on Thursday, soon after Liverpool’s festive lights were turned on. It is believed a row started between Ava and her by JERRY LAWTON, ■ Chief Crime Correspondent pals and a group of boys. Police found her on the ground with a member of the public giving first aid. Peter Duffy, head teacher at Notre Dame Catholic College in Everton, said she was a “much-loved, valued and unique” pupil. Colin Parry – whose son Tim, 12, died in the IRA bombing in Warrington, Cheshire, in 1993 – tweeted that Ava was given a peace ambassador award by his charity in 2019 and her death was a “tragic loss”. jerry.lawton@dailystar.co.uk

With gas prices the way they are, I’d bite her hand off for that bag now. But don’t panic, despite all the country’s problems, everything can be solved with a trip to an extortionately priced cartoon pig theme park. How times change. In the old days we had a Prime Minister remembered for the quote “We Will Fight Them On The Beaches”. Now we have one that will be forever associated with, “Have You Been To Peppa Pig World?” Bozo said it was his kind of place. Well he is a bit porky and loves telling porkies. After his shambles of a speech to the CBI, a spokesman for 10 Downing Street was forced to insist that Boris was OK and has not lost his grip. Which is true I suppose, you can’t lose what you never had. By the way, I hear that Peppa Pig was caught with her snout in the trough. She has since been invited to join Tory Party. Talking of pig’s ears, Ole “on the Dole” Gunnar Solksjaer was finally sacked last weekend. All the other 19 clubs in the Premier League have put in a protest against the sacking.

DS1ST Kids in school testing SECONDARY schools in England have been told to test pupils on-site after the Christmas break. The Department for Education said it “will help reduce transmission after a period of social mixing”. An email told schools to order sufficient testing kits by Tuesday to ensure each pupil can take a rapid lateral flow test onsite in January. Julie McCulloch of The Association of School and College Leaders said: “We recognise the importance of Covid testing to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus.” But she said the Government “seems to have forgotten that school leaders are educators rather than an ad hoc branch of the NHS”. ANOTHER 160 people have died from Covid and there are 50,091 new cases. 50,875,712 first jabs and 46,255,081 second vaccines have been given.

The Omicron variant has twice as many mutations as Delta. And that could make vaccines at least 40% less effective at protecting us against infection, scientists fear. If the warnings prove right, it would be “like having to go back and start dealing with a totally new pandemic”, the World Health Organisation’s David Nabarro warned. Concern After appearing in southern Africa, Omicron has now been found in Belgium, Israel and Hong Kong. Health Secretary Sajid Javid said it is a “huge international concern”. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has now put South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Eswatini, Zimbabwe and Namibia on the red travel list. The strain – now officially a variant of concern – has sparked fears over Christmas as Mr Shapps said it was “inevitable” it will reach the UK.

Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, Alan Carr and Morgan Freeman were among other top picks. But Donald Trump and Boris Johnson emerged as the two least popular potential bingo callers, in a survey.

The silver metal rings usually found around the legs of live birds can give a lot of knowledge. Following the web address marked on it, I reported it and got info back in an hour. Not only did I know when and where this chap was born but, as someone had reported it before me, also how he died. He was a cormorant, and ringed 40km from where he was discovered. He was found freshly dead a few weeks ago, having tried to eat a fish the size of his body and choking. What a way to go, but for a cormorant probably the way he would want to. Which brings me to today’s topic. I wanted to talk about the greedy cormorant’s smaller cousin, the naughtily named shag. An influx of winter birds means, if you are at the coast, you have a better chance of seeing these skinny gluttons than during the rest of the year. Unless you are in the southwest I’m afraid, sorry about that. Like cormorants, shags belong to a family whose latin name translates to bald sea raven. Shags are referred to by the rest of the world as common shags, which gives me a chuckle. Shags are much smaller and skinnier, with much slimmer beaks. They are very much birds of the coasts and don’t tend to come far inland. They can once in a while be seen at a lake or river, but always alone. The bird is a familiar sight to coastal fishermen, and has a slew of local names including Cole goose, morvran, scarf, Gluttons of our coasts Tip of the week Winter is coming! Don’t forget that garden birds need all the help they can get! Keep those feeders stocked and you might be rewarded with sight of some of our winter visitors! turfed skart, spilgarn and trainygoat. “Shag” is an old word meaning “crest”. In the breeding season the adults grow a quiff of feathers that curve backwards. They also have a more noticeable green iridescence to the feathers. They are unique in that they dive much deeper in the water to catch fish than their brothers, foraging on the seafloor for eels. They have been recorded diving nearly 165ft. Historically they were specialist hunters of sand eel, but rising sea temperatures have led them to adapt and they now have a more diverse diet. Shags are birds of rocky coastal outcrops, so your best chance of a shag is heading out into the rain and bluster. Maybe just stay indoors.

This Morning’s fashion expert took part in the 2016 series and meditated her way through to cope with the creepie-crawlies with the help of wellness guru Deepak Chopra. Lisa says: “I read a lot of Deepak’s books and listened to his apps. “He goes through the alphabet and says A is for abundance, B is for… So I would sometimes have this little chant in my head. “I’d try to remember all the things he said and zone in on that to keep my spirits lifted. “I felt quite lonely in there because it’s a long day. “You miss contact with people you love. “As great as the other campmates they’re not family or close friends. “I’d go into meditation when there were spiders and rats, zone out and tell myself, ‘This isn’t going to kill m e ’.” Former are, ‘It’s super fun – you have to go for it’ EXCLUSIVE ■■ by kim carr model Lisa is backing ex- Saturdays singer turned Loose Woman Frankie Bridge to follow Giovanna Fletcher in becoming the queen of Abergele’s Gwrych Castle. She says: “I am team Frankie all the way because she’s a mate. “I was in the camp with her husband Wayne, so when I heard she was going into the castle I was like, ‘What?!’ “I would much prefer to be in Australia. “No offence to Wales, but this time of the year… “It’s a super fun experience and you have to throw yourself into it and go for it. “I didn’t know Frankie was going in, but I’ve sent Wayne a couple of messages. “She is amazing – down-to-earth, gorgeous, funny and brilliant.” While this year’s celebs teeth chatter in Wales, Lisa has been taking her love for wild swimming to the next level in aid of supporting Talisker whisky and Parley’s One For The Sea programme. They are working together, looking to support the protection and preservation of 100million square metres of sea forest by 2023. During this month’s COP26 conference, 26 swimming professionals and ocean enthusiasts, including Lisa and extreme adventurer Ross Edgley, dipped into the chilly waters off Brighton beach to highlight he issue. “We need to reconnect with nature, see the beauty of the oceans and how fragile they are, and re-educate everybody,” says Lisa. “I love wild swimming so to get behind this One For The Sea campaign was invigorating. “Afterwards, the benefits really kick in because you’re buzzing – it’s so good for relieving stress and boosting immunity.” With that warnings biodiversity in our seas is in great danger – which is bad news for the planet as a whole – protecting sea kelp forests is critical. Lisa adds: “They cover more than 25% of the ocean’s coastlines and do so much for the health of the world. “They help to balance water acidity and absorb carbon dioxide, and they’re home to key species, which they shelter and nourish. “Sea kelp absorbs more CO2 than trees, so it’s crucial we preserve and protect it.” Lisa, who postponed her wedding to fiancé George Smart because of the Covid pandemic, turns 50 in January and is planning a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. “George is taking me to Iceland,” the presenter reveals. “It’s a big one so I’ll celebrate the whole of January.” ● To help protect the sea for future generations and learn more about Talisker whisky and Parley’s One For The Sea campaign, visit OneForTheSea.com and see how each donation will support their direct impact work to help protect and preserve sea forests. ■MAKING A SPLASH: The star in the Jungle and, below, in the sea at Brighton with adventurer Ross Pictures: REX; OLIVER DIXON

32 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 JUST JANE JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY ... AND EVERY DAY DS1ST Kids set to leave country I’m terrified that my children are going to move away and leave me on my own. My daughter often talks about her wish to live in France, while my son has hinted he’d prefer South Africa. I would never have dreamt of abandoning my parents after all they did for me. Of course, my husband and I could go to visit, but I don’t particularly like flying or being away from home for long periods. I just think they’re being utterly selfish, don’t you? Have you ever heard of cruelty or ingratitude like it? JANE SAYS: I can understand your anxiety and pain. But you have to accept that your offspring are no longer babies. They’re preparing to make their own way in the world. If anything, you should be proud of yourself – you’ve obviously raised confident, ambitious, and independent young adults. It’s a new start for them, and you. Try to channel your energy more positively – work out what you’d like to achieve personally. It’s only natural that you’ll miss your kids if they emigrate – but nothing stays the same forever. Enjoy them while they’re still around. myself and went on a crash diet. Now I fail to recognise my own reflection. My clothes fit and my face looks drawn. I’m not eligible for NHS surgery, so I feel hopeless. Why am I such an idiot?

It’s very difficult to have sex with someone without emotion and we do form attachments.

You clearly miss your husband so if you want your relationship to thrive, then it’s vital you talk to him and explain that you hate it when he’s away so much. Maybe he can compromise by working closer to home or changing his job so he doesn’t have to be away so much. I know you felt lonely, but if you really loved your husband then you’d have found another way to fill your time. Terms & conditions: Calls cost £1.54 per minute from landlines.

She needs to stop faking it My girl puts on a terrible posh accent and hideous laugh whenever she’s trying to impress her boss and colleagues. She sounds like a cross between the Queen Mother and a strangled hyena. I know she feels out of depth in her new job but her fakeness is driving me up the wall.

Beg her to calm down because she’s trying too hard, and we can all spot a fake a mile off. The last thing she wants is to lose credibility.

34 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 DS1ST RAVEL Time travel SUMPTUOUS Roe Park Resort by VICKY LISSAMAN London Bridge marks its 50th anniversary in Lake Havasu, Arizona When the Old London Bridge of the nursery rhyme, built in 1209, started falling down a new one took its place in 1831. And by the 1960s that one was slowly sinking into the Thames because of the weight of modern traffic. But instead of being scrapped, the granite block structure was dismantled, bought by an American tycoon in 1968 for $2.4million, shipped to the Arizona desert and rebuilt as a tourist attraction at Lake Havasu City, where it’s now known as “the world’s most expensive souvenir”. This autumn marks the 50th anniversary of the bridge’s reopening in the USA. Today visitors can stroll across the old bridge over the man-made Bridgewater Channel to enjoy a very different view from its London days. The structure is, however, exactly as it was, with each numbered block returned to its original position complete with ornate, metal lamp-posts, forged from melted cannons captured by the British army at the Battle of Waterloo. If you want to see it, North America travel specialist Bon Voyage includes a visit in its tailor-made, self-drive Southern Desert Adventure itinerary. This epic road trip through arid mountains, red rock canyons and cactusfilled desert landscapes takes in the best of the region surrounding Phoenix, Scottsdale and the Valley of the Sun. Starting in the state capital, Phoenix, the journey continues through colourful Tucson, Lake Havasu (for the bridge), spa-filled Sedona and the stunning scenery of the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. It’s an 11-night holiday for £2,125pp, including flights, car rental and room-only accommodation. bon-voyage.co.uk, 0800 316 0194 Riders at Blackpool Pleasure Beach are getting a rear-ly big surprise in 2022. The two back seats – to be named ENSO – on roller coaster ICON will be modified to spin and twist freely during the ride’s high-speed accelerations and twists and turns. blackpool pleasurebeach.com CHALLENGE Famous Castlerock course Jerry Lawton enjoys his golf in Northern Ireland in the footsteps of legends Bathed in sunshine on the 10th tee at Castlerock Golf Club, contemplating a horror shot to a tiny green bordered by bunkers, rough and a railway, it hit me that I was following in the footsteps of giants. Many of golf ’s biggest stars have faced that same challenge. Shane Lowry scored his first hole-in-one on the course, tucked away on Northern Ireland’s north coast. He won The Open just down the road at Royal Portrush – where superstar Rory McIlroy honed his skills. Ryder Cup-winning captain and player Paul McGinley holds the Castlerock course record. Former Open champion Darren Clarke plays there regularly. And yet here I was putting my patchy 18-handicap to the ultimate test. Of course I flopped. The 5th hole is the Railway – that’s where my ball went. I think it caught the 17:11 to Belfast. At the 9th – the Quarry – it disappeared down the vast chasm. No prizes for guessing what ‘‘ Around these parts, time is a vague promise, not a life-defining deadline happened at the Burn. But a truly tragic display did not hamper my enjoyment of one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. I had never contemplated holidaying in Northern Ireland. But as its UK status makes Covid travel easy, I decided on an adventure to the Emerald Isle. My easyJet flight from Manchester to Belfast took 35 minutes – barely time for a Guinness. Ten minutes after touchdown I was driving away in a Vauxhall Insignia from the Enterprise car hire depot. Upon saying I was going to the seaside village of Ballycastle, I was told: “Head to Larne and take the coast road. It’s like Highway One!’’ I responded with a wry grin. My sarcasm was misplaced. The Antrim Coast Road – the A2 – may not have the glitz of the San Francisco to LA trail but the scenery gives it a run for its money and historically it knocks it out of the park. The road snakes along past HOLE IN ONE Shane Lowry TASTY Seafood chowder wcoastal villages, some of the world’s best golf courses, golden beaches and a sea teeming with sharks, seals and dolphins. After stopping to take photos and observe a submarine sneaking through the 12-mile stretch of water separating the Irish mainland and Scotland, I realised I’d struggle to make my tee-off time at Ballycastle Golf Club. I need not have worried. Around these parts, time is a vague promise, not a life-defining deadline. On phoning to say I’d be late I was told: “Take your time. We’ll fit you in.’’ Consequently, when I arrived at Ballycastle’s Marine Hotel, down the road from the course, I was in holiday mode. I’d been ‘Irelanded’. My top floor suite was bathed in light and had a beach view, walk-in shower and cheeky bath in the tee time Jerry bedroom – room 119 for anyone fancying a soak overlooking the sea. At the marina-facing bistro I tucked into the first of several Irish seafood chowders. It was also my first of many tangles with giants. The portion was enormous and topped with local seaweed called dulse – a spicy, salty delight which tastes way better than it looks. When I reached the course it was mid-afternoon and 27C. Rachel in the pro shop suggested a buggy and as I climbed to the top I was thankful. The views are amazing. On a clear day you can see not only Rathlin Island – where a hiding-out Robert the Bruce was famously inspired by the persistence of a web-spinning spider – but the Scottish mainland from the elevated 10th tee. Dating back to 1890, the course is a challenging combination of

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 35 Edited by NIGEL THOMPSON beautiful parkland and links. By the final holes I felt I was playing like Tiger and headed to dinner with that familiarly short-lived feeling I’d cracked this game. But I was in true golfing country – even the village estate agent is called McIlroy – and over chowder and Guinness in O’Connors Bar locals put the fear of God into me about the next day’s challenge at Castlerock. “Take some balls – in every sense,’’ chuckled one. After a hotel breakfast featuring white pudding so good I brought some home, I headed further along the coast, dropping in on Ballintoy harbour which appeared in Game Of Thrones. Next I sought out a real giant. Formed 60 million years ago by volcanic eruption, the Giant’s Causeway features 40,000 On a par with giants interlocking mainly hexagonal basalt columns, the tops of which form stepping stones leading out from the cliff foot. From there I dropped in on another giant – of the whiskey industry. Bushmills is one of the country’s top exports and its distillery is in the coastal village of the same name. I arrived at Castlerock ready for a record round. It was. I’ve never played worse, but that was no fault of an exceptional course that poses a true test even in perfect conditions. Later I tucked into fish and chips on the beach in Portrush itself before rebuilding my game at the Roe Park in Limavady. Voted the country’s best golf resort two years running it’s easy to see why with its generous rooms and fabulous health spa. The broader, forgiving fairways of the parkland course helped me rediscover my form. One fantastic steak in its Coach House Brasserie later and I headed to Derry. Its famous ANCIENT Giant’s Causeway walls were built in the 17th century to keep out the English but luckily STRIKING Peace Bridge across the River Foyle times have changed and it was named the UK’s first city of culture in 2013. The 770ft Peace Bridge – built across the River Foyle 10 years ago to mark Ireland’s new harmony – is spectacularly lit at night. Next morning I visited Gortmore, which offers clear-day views of the Scottish isles of Islay and Jura and an up-close one of a sculpture of local sea god Manannán Mac Lir. On my way home I squeezed in a final nine holes at Templepatrick golf club in the shadow of Belfast airport. The 7,000-yard track is packed with lakes, dykes and hazards. I felt I stepped straight off the course onto the plane, where I swiftly determined one aspect of my Northern Ireland adventure would most definitely NOT be giant – the time gap until my return.

Lopez, 24, faces George Kambosos Jnr in a defence of his WBA, WBO and IBF lightweight titles this weekend in New York in what should be a fun fight. He is the only one who has any real claim to being king of the division at the moment.

Haney, who at 23 has some version of the WBC title, has been more active and will have his second fight of the year next weekend. The same for Davis, 27, but it is hardly something to celebrate.

Sunderland, 4 Bronte Law, 5 Shakur Stevenson. Doyle in six shot ■■ by PETER OAKES IPSWICH have won the race to sign superstar Jason Doyle – and the 2017 speedway world champion has set his sights on winning a sixth league crown. Grand Prix regular Doyle, who has been a title winner with Poole, Somerset and Swindon (three times), said: “Ipswich haven’t won the championship for a while, so that is the main goal.” Doyle’s last league meeting in the UK was in the final match of 2019 when he was unbeaten, as Swindon beat the Witches in the second leg of the Premiership Grand Final. After missing the last two British seasons, the 36-year-old agreed to return to racing in this country, saying: “I decided to come back this year and I had a few offers, so I had to sit down and pick through the pros and cons of each one. “I like the Ipswich track and have ridden well there, so it was a big plus point.” Lee will Ryd this one out Lee Westwood has ruled himself out of the running to be Europe’s next Ryder Cup captain. The English ace was the strong favourite to be handed the task of regaining the trophy in Rome in 2023 after being part of the side which suffered a record 19-9 defeat at Whistling Straits in September. However, the 48-year-old has decided to focus on his playing career and could ■■ by PHIL CASEY yet make a record 12th appearance as a player in the biennial contest. Westwood said: “Of course it is not a decision I’ve taken lightly as it would be a huge honour to captain Europe and it is something I’d love to do one day. “But it’s almost a full-time job nowadays and that is something I can’t commit to while I’m in the top 50 and still competitive. rugby league DS1ST The Ryder Cup is very close to my heart and I would only take on the role if I believe I could give it 100 per cent. “Whoever gets the job for Rome will obviously have my full backing.” With Westwood out of contention the likes of Luke Donald, Henrik Stenson, Robert Karlsson and Graeme McDowell will be in the frame, with all four having experience of being vice-captains. SKIP IT: Westwood ■■ by GARETH WALKER has recently been amended. Silva said: “He didn’t know how to play rugby and had never even watched it, now he’s a complete Wigan fan. “They came up to see me train for the first time and he bought loads of stuff to wear back at home. He’s a proper fan now. “My dad has been my hero during my life. He’s taught me everything I know in terms of the martial arts side and made me who I am. “My mum as well, but from a sports side my dad always helped with everything. Little hints, nutrition, he’s been a great idol for me.” Silva faces a significant challenge to force his way into the first-team picture in a competitive Wigan squad in 2022, but his rapid rise to date suggests he shouldn’t be underestimated. He added: “Since I’ve played, Wigan has been one of the clubs I’ve wanted to go to, the reputation is unbelievable. “I want to play as many games as I can for the first team, develop as much as I can and be a key player, rather than just taking part.” PONTING’S AD-VICE RICKY PONTING believes Australia vice-captain Steve Smith could stop new skipper Pat Cummins being too selfless in the Ashes. The legendary Aussie captain (inset) said: “The only concern I have is if Pat’s the standout fast bowler, is he going to keep bowling himself? “Will he be worried ULTIMATE WARRIOR Scrapper Silva up for Wigan fight RAMON Silva has a story like no other in Super League. Wigan’s recent front-row signing was born in Sao Paulo, moved to London aged just two and until his mid-teens focused his sporting attention on martial arts. Dad Ricardo is a renowned MMA coach who has trained the likes of UFC light-heavyweight Jimi Manuwa and Bellator fighter Nathan Rose. Ramon looked set to follow in his father’s footsteps until a friend invited him to try rugby league – and just four years later he joined the Warriors out of London Broncos’ academy. Silva said: “I didn’t start rugby until I was about 16. I always did martial arts, my dad is a black belt in jiu-jitsu and has travelled all around the world coaching. “In terms of coaching I’ve had the best. I grew up with it and it’s helped with dedication and being sensible when I started rugby. “I did wrestling, jiu-jitsu, MMA and Thai boxing. The wrestling helped here because some of the guys at Wigan are huge, absolutely massive. “It does help me and in the matches as well with my tackling technique, holding people down on the floor.” Dad Ricardo knew nothing of Super League when his son’s career path changed, but that ■ FIGHTING LEGACY: Silva’s dad coached UFC light-heavyweight star Jimi Manuwa (right) ■WHOLE NEW BALL GAME: SiIva didn’t even play rugby until he was 16 years old ■■ by GIDEON BROOKS about what people are going to think if he just keeps himself on? “That’s where the vice-captain’s role is really important.” Former captain Tim Paine was stood down over a historic texting scandal last week and said yesterday that he was taking an indefinite break from all cricket.

Ronnie O’Sullivan reckons snooker’s Holy Trinity will be sorely missed when they’re gone – much like Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic in tennis. ‘The Rocket’ takes on Liverpool’s Robbie Williams today in York as he bids to extend his own event record by winning an eighth UK Championship. O’Sullivan is part of the iconic ‘Class of 92’ along with John Higgins and Mark Williams. The trio are all in their 30th season on tour and between them they have won 13 world crowns and an astonishing 159 tour titles. And the world No.3, also a regular pundit for Eurosport, believes that with longevity comes fan loyalty. O’Sullivan said: “In tennis you look at Federer, Nadal and Djokovic, who are such greats and have dominated the sport for so long, and in the recent ATP Finals you didn’t have two of them. “They are really hard to replace, you almost can’t replace Federer and Nadal, they are one-offs for their sport for what they have achieved. “People follow those players not just for the odd match but for their whole career, you’re on a journey with them and that comes over time. “I can see why people have occasionally made that comparison to snooker and myself, John Higgins and Mark Williams. “People love the longevity and how long you’ve been at it. They come up to you and say, LEAD ROLE: Itoje ■■ by HECTOR NUNNS ■TRIPLE THREAT: The Rocket, (right) Higgins and (below) Williams ‘When I was a student at university I started following you then’. “And though you have never met them, they have been following your career for 30 years. “And maybe, yes, when we stop it could be similar and have some sort of effect on the game, or leave a hole, especially if we all left around the same time.” O’Sullivan, who lost all five of his finals last season, has seen Scot Higgins suffer this term, losing the last three major finals. And The Rocket claims that becoming a little more relaxed and laid-back in the style of Williams might also help Higgins, who admits he is struggling to handle the pressure. O’Sullivan added: “I feel that you almost can’t try that hard. “If John is putting that amount of effort in and it is taking so much out of him, it will be more difficult. “Look at Mark Williams. Same age but such a different mindset. He’d laugh at himself and say, ‘Oh, look at me, I was 8-6 up and I’ve lost 9-8 again, my bottle’s gone!’ “When you’re younger, you want to graft it out always, but at some point, maybe at our age, you have to learn to enjoy it.” ■■ by ALEX SPINK glory in 2014, played every minute of the autumn Tests against Tonga, Australia and South Africa but he has made himself available to start for Saracens at home to Premiership rivals Sale tomorrow.

The two Scots were the stars of the team which won the trophy for the first time in 79 years in 2015. But Andy Murray has made himself unavailable, while Jamie was not picked for the strong five-man squad for the finals, which start in Innsbruck this weekend. World No.12 Cam Norrie and world No.25 Dan Evans will play the singles with Liam Broady in reserve, while US Open doubles champion Joe Salisbury will make his debut alongside Neal Skupski. The last time neither Murray brother played was when in April 2013. Captain Leon Smith said: “Both have been a mainstay in the team for a long time because they’ve been at the top of the game for a very long time. “But the guys we’ve got are all at careerhigh rankings. They deserve to be here.” Britain will face Czech Republic tomorrow and winning Group C would see them meet Serbia in Tuesday’s quarter-final. ■ Emma Raducanu will play her first match in London as US Open champion at the Royal Albert Hall tomorrow. The British No.1 will face Romanian Elena- Gabriela Ruse in an exhibition at the ATP Champions event. Super Maro main man for Sarries SARACENS have wasted no time tapping into the leadership skills of Maro Itoje that Eddie Jones this week called into question. In his new book on leadership, Jones says he does not see Itoje as a future England captain because he is “very inward-looking” and “drives himself rather than anyone else”. Itoje, who skippered England to Junior World Cup people listen to. He just jumps back in there and was very important in our training sessions this week. It’s great to have him back.” Itoje will come up against England team-mates Bevan Rodd, Raffi Quirke and Tom Curry, while the clash also marks a reunion between Sale boss Alex Sanderson and the London club he spent 17 years with. Sanderson is staying over with Saracens attack coach Kevin Sorrell and planned to go out for a beer with his old mates last night. He said: “The one thing you can take from sport, the forever thing that lasts, is the friendship and the memories you make. “If you let the need to win overcome all those principles of friendship, if winning matters that much to you, you’re a shallow person.”

The Everton boss has racked up 1,162 games as a manager in Spain, England, Italy and China. Brentford boss Frank (inset) admits he still has plenty to learn. The Dane said: “Anyone who has had more than 1,000 games is a great manager. “But on top of that, when you have done it in several different countries and only top clubs across the world, that speaks for itself. “Rafa is a brilliant manager and it is important to be inspired. Every day I am still learning as a coach. “If you want to be at this high performance level, you need to do things perfectly every day, to be consistent and innovative.” premier league DS1ST DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 43 tomorrow, 2pm SKY sports ME REF: Darren England rafa’s jan plan ■GOOD JOB: Rafa Benitez says he wants to be at Everton for the long haul Boss says fresh blood will lift Toffees RAFA BENITEZ is confident he has the support of Everton owner Farhad Moshiri. And he revealed he has already held talks with club chairman Bill Kenwright about January signings. The Toffees boss is under pressure after a run of six games without a win, with a trip to Brentford up tomorrow. But with Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea to come in three of their next five games, it could get a lot worse. Benitez said: “Mr Moshiri is quite clever and we can’t complain because he has spent a lot of money. “He wants to do well but he knows, from when we had conversations in the beginning, they have to support me and support the structure in general so that we can improve. “All the conversations with him have been really positive. We talk about this all the time but we have to be realistic. “I don’t want to be here for three years, I want to be here for even more. v ■■ by Chris McKenna I want to be here for the new stadium and try to be successful there also. “Mr Moshiri, he knows. We are bringing in some players who are doing well but we are also improving some players.” Benitez will blame injuries to key stars for their slump. Dominic Calvert- Lewin hasn’t played since August, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Yerry Mina have been missing for more than a month, while the only money spent in the summer was the £1.7m on winger Demarai Gray (inset). Kenwright visited Finch Farm on Wednesday and held talks with Benitez, who added: “We were talking about what we can do in January and what is going on. “Everybody is a little disappointed with the situation at the moment but at the same time we are confident we will do well and change things around, especially if we can in the January window.’’ Only £1.16 per can!

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Burnley, Conte said: “We want to grow and compete with other great English clubs but today there is a gap between the investments made by the owners and the sporting results. We have to fill it. “We need players with the right mentality and with the quality, players that deserve to play for Tottenham and aspire to be competitive, to fight for this shirt, to win something. “I’m making my evaluations and then I’ll speak with the club.” New boss Conte made nine changes, only to replace four of those fringe players – Matt Doherty, Bryan Gil, Dele Alli and Joe Rodon – nine minutes into the second half. Davinson Sanchez, at fault for both goals, and struggling record signing Tanguy Ndombele also appear to be on borrowed time. Over the past five windows Spurs have signed 18 first-team players permanently or on loan. Yet their most important players pre-date all of them – Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Hugo Lloris. Sergio Reguilon, Eric Dier, Ben Davies, Lucas Moura, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and academy players Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp have all impressed Conte, while Ryan Sessegnon, despite being sent off against Mura, is likely to get more chances. But most if not all the others are playing for their futures. Conte said: “The chairman has shown me that he wants me at all costs. In his words and in the investments made, I saw a vision – the desire to excel. “If we combine this ability off the pitch with what I can give on the pitch, we can really set up a serious and profound job. “Challenges have never scared me, I just need to have a one per cent chance of winning them to start my battle. “I have never taken teams that had won the year before, mine are always paths of reconstruction. “Juventus reached first place from eighth, Chelsea from 10th, Inter from fourth. I know it will take some patience this time. “In Milan I left a finished job. Here I have to start all over again and beginning once the season has started is never easy.” ■EURO TRASH: Antonio Conte and (below) Dele Alli, Ben Davies and Harry Kane look stunned as Spurs lose to minnows Mura PERFECT MOMENT: Dyche Clarets have time on their side Burnley boss Sean Dyche hopes Antonio Conte does take a little more time to settle into his new role as Tottenham manager. Conte made a winning start against Leeds last week but Spurs slipped to an embarrassing defeat on Thursday to Slovenian minnows NS Mura. The former Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan manager admitted afterwards that “the level at Tottenham is not so high” and Dyche is keen to cash in on any uncertainty. He said: “It will be helpful if it ■■ by darren witcoop does take time because we play them very quickly. “There’s no two ways about the manager knowing his stuff and, to be honest, the players know their stuff. “It’s just sometimes you need the connection between what you’re trying to achieve tactically, a change of culture, change of manager, and getting the best out of the players. “The manager needs to get the best out of them, that’s his job, and his record suggests he will over time. I really hope he doesn’t this weekend, that would be helpful, but they don’t lack talent, that’s for sure.” The Clarets have lost only one of their last seven league games but remain in the bottom three. But Dyche added: “We’re going to have to be well aware of the strengths they’ve got. “But equally, we’re on a nice little run. Our performances – I’ve said most of the season actually, but certainly recently – we look a threat, we can score goals at the moment.”

seriously football ■■ by JAMES NURSEY STEVEN GERRARD will relish going head to head with Patrick Vieira again today – but admits their “warrior” midfield style has become obsolete in the Premier League. Former Liverpool midfield general Gerrard (inset) will be up against an old rival on the touchline with ex-Arsenal star Vieira in charge of Crystal Palace. And Gerrard, who retired in 2016, says the evolution of football and VAR in particular means he is not expecting too many crunching challenges. The new Aston Villa boss said: “The game has changed and evolved in a way where maybe you can’t be as aggressive or you don’t get away with what you could 10 to 15 years ago when we played. “You don’t get away with being that tough-tackler style, real warrior-type midfielder... especially with VAR and the way refereeing has gone. “But the Premier League is littered with top midfielders. “Players I competed against were really self-driven players who had top standards, consistency and they were all different challenges in different ways. “But when I watch the Premier League now, there is a lot of quality, a lot of high-level midfielders. “Some like to sit in that six position and dominate games, like Fabinho and Rodri, but you also have real eights who like to run into the box like Conor Gallagher, who we come up against at the weekend and is a top player.” As well as reaching the top as players, Gerrard and Vieira also worked diligently as young coaches to become Premier League managers. Gerrard served his apprenticeship coaching Liverpool’s kids before taking over at Rangers, where he won the title. Vieira learned the ropes at Manchester City before spells in charge of New York City FC and Nice until he landed the Palace job this summer. Gerrard added: “I really admire him as a guy and as a player and a coach. “I admire when he finished as a player he went back to start at the beginning.” Villa go into the game on a high after Gerrard won his first game in charge with a 2-0 win over Brighton thanks to late Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings goals. But despite his wild celebrations when Watkins curled in an 84th-minute screamer in front of the Holte End, Gerrard was quick to stress post-match the importance of today’s game. He added: “The message at the end was, ‘Let’s get recovered, enjoy your day off and then get back to work to prepare in the best way we can for Palace’. “I must say the players have applied themselves really well.” premier league DS1ST VAR VAR away DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 45 today, 3pm REFEREE: Michael Salisbury v STAR WARS ARE OVER Gerro and Vieira from a galaxy ■MAN’S GAME: Gerrard gets stuck in against Vieira in the days before tackling went out of fashion Pat won’t get shirty ■■ by IAN WINROW PATRICK Vieira insists there will be no hangover from his full-blooded midfield battles with Steven Gerrard when they meet as Premier League managers for the first time today. No quarter was asked or given when Vieira’s Arsenal clashed with Gerrard’s Liverpool over the years. But the Frenchman insists their confrontations were underpinned by a mutual respect – highlighted by the fact both men count the other’s shirts among their most treasured possessions from their playing days. The duo come face to face on the Selhurst Park touchline, as Vieira’s Crystal Palace face Gerrard’s Aston Villa. Vieira said: “Every game we played against Liverpool was a tough challenge because of Steven Gerrard. “He was a real leader, a real captain and one of the best players in that position. “We had massive respect for each other. He is one of those who changed the role of the holding midfielder – one of the few players capable of scoring goals, making assists and getting in the box. “He was like a No.10 playing as a holding midfielder.” ■ WINTER SUNDERLAND: Sarina Wiegman leads training at the Stadium of Light yesterday Wiegman Lionesses face toughest test SARINA WIEGMAN faces the toughest examination of her time as England manager today as they face Austria in a Women’s World Cup qualifier. And with it both sides can take lessons for what could be in store at the European Championships next year. England have made a brilliant start to their campaign, winning all four matches and scoring 32 goals without conceding. ENGLAND v AUSTRIA KICK-OFF: 12.30pm, live on ITV ■■ by RICHARD LEWIS But at the Stadium of Light they meet the only other team unbeaten in their group. Austria are second with three wins and a draw. Wiegman has been manager since September and she said: “I expect a tougher game than any other we have played so far. “We will just try to improve our style of play again. Make sure we are prepared for Austria, know how they play, what we want to do, how we get our game to the next level – and hopefully that brings us another win. “They have a pretty experienced team. They have been growing, have a very clear style of play and are well organised. “They have good players, a lot of them play in Germany, so we expect a good competitive match, although I do think – and hope – that we will have more possession than them.” The teams will meet again next July 6 at Old Trafford in the first match of the Women’s European Championships. Wiegman added: “It is a test for us both. We are only focusing on the game tomorrow, getting a good performance and winning, then after that we will see. “This is comparable because you are playing the same team. The difference is that at the Euros, it is the opening game in a sold-out stadium and that will be a very exciting moment.’’

46 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 DS1ST PAUL MERSON OUR TOP COLUMNIST SHOOTS FROM THE LIP INTERVIEW ■■ by paul brown MANCHESTER United needing an interim manager is a shambles – and Cristiano Ronaldo might decide to walk away in the summer. He won’t be hanging around if they don’t finish in the top four because he will want to end his career in the Champions League. And that doesn’t look terribly likely right now because United are a mess and will probably get thrashed by Chelsea tomorrow. It might actually suit all parties if he leaves anyway because if they appoint Mauricio Pochettino and he wants to press from the front, you’re not doing that with Ronaldo. But what I really don’t get is why the biggest club in the world needs an INTERIM manager. It’s like they are writing this season off – like you’re admitting no one good enough to be considered long term will take the job. That says it all. This is Manchester United. That should not be happening. This job should be one of the most wanted jobs in football. I find it extraordinary that a club like this should need an interim manager. For a massive club like this, it’s so off the cuff. They need to be appointing a permanent manager NOW. Waiting until the summer just means none of the problems there get fixed. Whoever they want to give it to long term needs time to work out who to get rid of. If United want Pochettino, go and get him now. You’re supposed to be the biggest club in the world. Prove it. The trouble is, how much has Pochettino actually won in his career? Is he really the right man for the job? He didn’t even win the league with PSG last year and he doesn’t look like winning the Champions League with them this year either. That’s despite having Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar in his team. And let’s face it, if Pochettino does somehow win the Champions ■ TOP PICK: Brendan Rodgers Delay and he’ll be Ron his way League, why would PSG let him go? They’ve been trying to find someone to get them over that hump for years. Are you telling me that after finally doing it, they’d James is achieving his goals REECE JAMES is becoming a superstar and he is already Chelsea’s top scorer this season. But if he’s top scorer by the end of the season, they are not winning the league – they need a striker to be firing in the goals. I think Chelsea have been brilliant this season and the manager has been outstanding because he’s getting contributions from everyone. Top managers know how to keep all their players happy. He’s got everyone playing on top of their game. I said ages ago that James could become England’s best right-back. I still think he’s more of a wing-back but what a player he is now. He keeps his game so simple. He’s a strong lad, so fit, and he scores goals. It’s no fluke his finishing is so good because he used to be a centre-forward. He’s just got to stay consistent. But it’s Romelu Lukaku they need to score the goals. Title-winning teams need a striker scoring 20 goals a season. If Lukaku doesn’t do that, he’s been a major flop. UNITED’S INTERIM PLAN fraught with danger let him simply walk away? No chance. I’m surprised Brendan Rodgers doesn’t get more of a mention but maybe he’s not flavour of the month any more because Leicester are only mid-table. I think Rodgers would be perfect ■REAL DEAL: James is up there with the best ■CAPTION: dhghd jhgd hsdgsd gsdfgs for United.

We’re heading towards United going a decade without STEVEN GERRARD will be rooting out anyone at Aston Villa who isn’t up to it. He was a brave player and he will be looking for that from his Villa stars. He’ll use the next few months to work out who he can rely on and who’s hiding. But it’s going to take time.

I don’t think they would have beaten Brighton without Gerrard (inset) being there. The fans stayed with them longer than they would have for Dean Smith. It would have been a winning the title. If they’re not careful they’re going to end up with a drought like Liverpool’s. I think Ronaldo would stay if they manage to qualify for the Champions League. But I said when they signed him that signing him means they are further away from winning the league than ever – and they are. He’s been a problem because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a plan before they signed him and had to rip it all up to try to get him in the team, and it hasn’t worked. Where United go from here is anybody’s guess, but a club like that should not be having to get an interim manager. It’s embarrassing. like-minded stars for gerro different atmosphere and I don’t think the players would have been able to handle it. Brighton were comfortable but Villa hung on and won the game and that will do their confidence the world of good. Now they need to build on it.

Government rules say people must isolate for 10 days after a positive test or when symptoms started. Toon assistant boss Jason Tindall said yesterday Howe was “surprised” to be positive during a routine pre-game test last Friday “because he has no symptoms”. But Newcastle declared their new boss clear to come back to work after he returned a negative test yesterday morning. Howe’s infection was caught by a pre-match test on November 19. The club’s surprise announcement yesterday means that his symptoms must have started around Tuesday November 16. However, Toon players will be relieved Howe can take charge for today’s testing trip to Arsenal after a week in which his staff relayed his tactical instructions to the training field. Tindall said: “You want the leader, you want your manager here with you. We have missed him. “He sees training back every day and we video it from multiple angles. ‘‘We review it back, analyse the detail and then have feedback.” Newcastle insist all protocols have been followed and that Tindall was unaware that his close mate had symptoms earlier. GO EXCLUSIVE ■■ by JOHN CROSS GUNNERS legend Lauren believes Arsenal should be under pressure to finish in the top four this season. And the title-winning member of the ‘Invincibles’ team believes that pressure should come from within to raise the expectation levels under Mikel Arteta. Arsenal have not reached the Champions League since 2017 and Lauren (inset) firmly believes there is a place up for grabs this season. The former full-back, now working for FIFA as a technical expert for talent development, said: “We have to put pressure on ourselves always, both individually and collectively, to get to the Champions League places. “You must always set high targets. They have to try to get back into the Champions League next season, then build on that for the following years, because it makes such a difference. “There’s Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City and then maybe there’s one place open. The reality says that you cannot ■ NO FEARS: Arsenal boss Arteta four Lauren says Champions League return’s a must fight for the league but Arsenal have shown with some of the displays before the Liverpool defeat that this team can get to the Champions League places. “If they hadn’t started so slowly, they might have been able to win the league but I believe this team is capable of getting into the top four. To win the league is not impossible but it’s really difficult.” Lauren was part of the 2002 title-winning team and Arsene Wenger converted him from midfielder to right-back as part of the unbeaten defence in 2003-04. The ex-Cameroon international now admires Arsenal’s Japan right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu, who has been such a hit in their new-look defence since arriving in the summer with keeper Aaron Ramsdale. Lauren said: “Tomiyasu is a very good player. He’s settled well. He looks comfortable and looks as if he has played there for years. “They have a good, settled defence. Gabriel, Ramsdale, what a fantastic game the keeper had at Leicester. I haven’t seen a performance like that for years. He is absolutely outstanding.” Lauren, who lives in Seville and works part-time as a TV pundit, is now trying to improve the all-round structure of African football. Despite all the African superstars and promise in major tournaments, the continent has yet to win a World IT Cup and FIFA’s idea is to improve the overall level in domestic leagues. Lauren has been working with former England boss Steve McClaren and ex-France defender Mikael Silvestre on brainstorming sessions and will make visits to countries to try to improve facilities and coaching. He said: “I’ve got so much to offer and I’ve waited for this opportunity for so long. When you can help others reach their goals, it’s so satisfying. “There’s many people working on this. I’m a small piece of the cake but we need to look at four things. Structural change, long-term methodology, monitoring and application. These are the key issues we went through in the brainstorming session. “We need a technical director, we need the right people, coaches with qualifications, many points we need to improve the game in Africa. “You have to identify the right people to implement this, to get people who love what they are doing. “You need 23 strong players in a squad at a World Cup and we need to raise the level.” Toon riches don’t scare Arteta MIKEL ARTETA insists Newcastle can ■■ by john cross best players, the best facilities and that “raise the level” of the Premier League club will be there.

48 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 premier league seriously today, 3pm REFEREE: Andre Marriner AVENGERS football Klopp says his stars will answer rough stuff with their skill JURGEN KLOPP has told teams who target Liverpool with underhand tactics: “We’ll pay you back with our football.” The Reds boss has been increasingly frustrated in recent weeks when his stars – in particular Sadio Mane and Mo Salah – have been singled out for rough stuff. The Senegalese forward has also found opponents trying to wind him up to provoke a reaction. Three times over the past year or so, Klopp has taken him off to avoid that. But the German says the only answer from his high-flying team is to rise above it, get revenge by defeating opponents with their classy football and he even suggested the newspaper headline. “The headline is: ‘We pay back with football’. So whatever we do, we pay them back with football,” he said. “It has been going on a long time, even when it was not obvious to the outside.” Mane seems to be targeted by opponents, and against his old club Southampton it is likely there will be special plans for a special player. Klopp is confident that the forward is experienced enough to handle anything thrown at him, but has spoken to Mane in a bid to ensure one of his star men remains on the pitch. “You can see it in games, they go for him because they want to wind him up,” said Klopp. “It is two different things. Sometimes opponents will be really aggressive in games.

Fouling him and telling him to get up, these kinds of things.” Mane won’t fall for it, though, Klopp believes. “Sadio is now of an age where he is much better at that. Not that emotional any more,” he added. “We all need emotions, and sometimes we control them better and sometimes less than you can do.” Klopp more or less has a full squad to choose from, with only Harvey Elliott on the long-term injury list, and Roberto Firmino and Joe Gomez close to a return.

The Hammers are on a high thanks to great results in the Premier League and in Europe and will go level on points with Manchester City if they beat them at the Etihad tomorrow. Europa League football has been secured beyond Christmas and fans are delighted that a new owner is now on the horizon. Daniel Kretinsky, fresh from securing a 27 per cent stake, has negotiated an option to buy the club from David Sullivan and David Gold. Just two years ago the Hammers were battling to avoid relegation but Moyes insisted that rapid turnaround was not down to cash. He said: “I don’t think there is a quick fix in building a football club. “You have to take it through the stages of trying to get a better team, get consistency and edge your players on as you go along. If you try to do it too quick, then, it fails. “You look at Manchester City and the funds they’ve got, they have taken things on greatly but even that took time – and they are still trying to win the Champions League. “There are things in football you just cannot buy and I’m thrilled it is that way because I would hate to think it was just money that got me success. “I hope the results are down to good recruitment, good coaching and doing things correctly.” premier league DS1ST toMORROW, 2pm REFEREE: Michael Oliver RAH HOO HE’S BACK ■HAVING A BAWL: Sterling has worked hard to find form Pep’s praise as Sterling reignites his goal form RAHEEM STERLING went “back to basics” to rediscover his goalscoring touch and best form for Manchester City. He has scored in his last three games for City, having done so in just two of his previous 30 outings stretching back to February. City boss Pep Guardiola praised the way England winger Sterling has come through his dry spell, and said: “I’m so glad for him, he’s helped us for sure. He will fight to be better. “It’s important for strikers and wingers to score and give assists. ‘‘Scoring goals can give confidence for these type of guys but he has to do better, be more aggressive, go one against one, arrive in the final third.

Two or three weeks later they come back, then it’s the Community Shield, then Tottenham. “You can’t imagine how difficult it is, especially for talented players. Every three days they have to be creative. When one player doesn’t play good, I don’t doubt them. “I’m not going to tell Raheem he doesn’t have the quality he had in the last six years. He’s the same guy, come back to basics and step by step he’ll come back.” Sterling’s goalscoring heroics saw him lauded as one of the world’s best attackers and had the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid on alert. He plundered 20-plus goals in three successive seasons, culminating in a career-best haul of 31 in the 2019-20 campaign. Guardiola is wary of setting Sterling a goal target this season and said the best way forward is to play without that additional pressure. “He doesn’t put pressure on him with numbers,” said Guardiola. “Just try to play good in the next game, score goals, make an assist and help his mates win. “At the end of the season see how many goals you’ve scored. “I’ve always told players to make demands of yourself, but don’t put a lot of pressure on your shoulders. You cannot always be 10 out of 10. “You have highs and lows. The important thing is not to get that low.” Kevin De Bruyne is still isolating after a positive coronavirus test and is not available to face West Ham tomorrow. Jack Greaslish and Phil Foden are back training but unlikely to be risked.

50 DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 seriously football ■MIKE DROP: Carrick is unsure if he will remain a part of Rangnick’s plans LEEDS star Kalvin Phillips will snub a move to Manchester United. The Old Trafford club are desperate to sign a holding midfielder and were plotting a £60m move for Phillips (below). But he has made it clear to those close to him he has no intention of leaving Elland Road for United next summer. The news will leave the door open for Liverpool to make their own bid for the 25-year-old. It is understood Phillips, who is a cult figure at Leeds, has huge concerns about the possible ramifications for his family should he walk out on his hometown club for United. Phillips’ mum Lindsay and some of his siblings still live in the city and he is worried they would be DS1ST STAMFORD BRIDGE SUNDAY SHOWDOWN GLORY MAN Carrick calls on a red letter day to batter blues ■■ by JEREMY CROSS MICHAEL Carrick is on a mission to take down Chelsea in what will be his second and last game as caretaker boss of Manchester United. The former central midfielder has taken temporary charge of the fallen giants following last weekend’s sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He led United to a Champions League win at Villarreal on Tuesday but faces a much sterner challenge against Thomas Tuchel’s Premier League leaders tomorrow. Carrick will head to Stamford Bridge knowing Ralf Rangnick is poised to replace him as United’s interim boss until the end of the season. But he insists he is determined to make the most of his brief stint in charge and despite knowing how strong his opponents are, is confident United can beat Tuchel’s European champions. Carrick, who will be without suspended captain Harry Maguire (inset left), said: “You’ve got to be hugely impressed by the way Chelsea go about things. “They’re super intense, well organised, have really good movement across their backline and frontline, very good at connecting with the midfield, really aggressive and playing really high. “They test your backline and stretch you across the pitch. They have a really good balance and they’re on a high. I’m well aware of the challenges. “It is a big test but we believe we can get a result there, no doubt.” Carrick, meanwhile, has refused to confirm if he will remain at United to be a part of Rangnick’s coaching team. “I think, as you can appreciate, this week’s been a busy one already and I haven’t really had time to think,” he said. “I haven’t given it much thought. I’m preparing the team the best I can and I’ve given everything I can. “Anything after Sunday is not in my thoughts at the moment.” Kalvin snub over fears ■■ EXCLUSIVE by JEREMY CROSS targeted for horrendous abuse from Leeds supporters if he joined his club’s most hated rivals.

Leeds are desperate to keep Phillips and are still locked in talks over a new and improved contract.

DS1ST toMORROW, 4.30pm SKY sports REF: Anthony Taylor DAILY STAR, Saturday, November 27, 2021 51 v GLORY looNITED THOMAS TUCHEL has claimed tactical guru Ralf Rangnick has shown “it’s not necessary to follow people to the toilet in football games”. And the Chelsea head coach insisted his German mentor is a leader who could now get Manchester United back in the chase for the title this season. Tuchel’s success in winning the Champions League after taking over in January encouraged United to appoint the ‘Godfather of the Gegenpress’ in mid-season. But the Stamford Bridge boss, 48, insisted Rangnick, 63, is the coach who sets the trends. Tuchel started his coaching career with the youth team at VfB Stuttgart under Rangnick in 2000 after a knee injury forced him to retire from playing at 24. “He helped me a lot because he was my coach,” he said. “And then he was one of the main figures to convince me to try coaching. So a huge influence on all of us at this time, because he showed us that it’s not necessary to follow people to the toilet in football games. “There was the belief then that the defenders follow their strikers wherever they go. He was very early a leader in bringing zonal marking and pressing and the line of a back four into German football and still being aggressive. ‘‘He was one of the pioneers to introduce a 4-4-2 and high pressing. So tactically he’s an elite manager with Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte.” Tuchel inherited a Chelsea side ■FRIENDLY RIVALS: Rangnick and Klopp Tuchel tips Ralf to start a lav affair at Old Trafford ■■ by NEIL McLEMAN from Frank Lampard in ninth place last season and finished fourth. Rangnick replaces Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with United – who bought Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho in the summer – down in eighth before tomorrow’s visit to Stamford Bridge. Asked if he had expected United to challenge for the title this season, the Blues boss said: ‘‘Yeah, I was and maybe I still am. First of all, it is a very experienced and top level group of players. ‘‘Part of the job for us is to not let them perform because once we let them perform, you can see within seconds the full potential and the talent of these players.” Rangnick agreed to join AC Milan last year before the Italians did a U-turn, and he spoke to Chelsea in January before Tuchel’s appointment. But he has never had a top European job. Tuchel added: “So far he focused on having a certain amount of freedom to be in charge with Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig. “In these environments he was the decisive person and he found a managing role far more than only the coach. Maybe this was the key stopping him from stepping From Back Page sporting director on a £3.8m-a-year deal, is expected to double his wages at Old Trafford and will cost United nothing in compensation. He will be involved in the process of identifying and appointing a full-time boss ahead of the start of the next campaign. Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers are two of the leading targets, while Rangnick is a huge admirer of Ajax boss Erik ten Hag. His arrival in Manchester from Russia has been delayed by visa problems and it is doubtful he will be in charge ahead of Thursday’s into every offer that he got.” So another German with a big personality and sense of humour will be running a top English club in their own style. Klopp called his style of football “heavy metal”, while Tuchel revealed he preferred Abba. “When I told you I listened to Abba because I was in love with the singer,” the Chelsea boss laughed. “The blonde one.” Meanwhile, Tuchel hopes Ben Chilwell will be back in the New Year but says striker Romelu Lukaku is not ready to face United tomorrow. England left-back Chilwell (left) suffered a knee injury in the midweek win over Juventus. Tuchel said: “Ben has a partial injury of his ACL and we will treat it conservatively. “The next six weeks will tell us if he will be fully available then, or if he will need surgery after that. “Romelu is in training, and if you ask the player I am sure that he will say, ‘Yes I can start for sure’. “But there is a bit of difference between ready for training and ready for games.” game with Arsenal at Old Trafford. He will take up the senior advisor role on a two-year deal in June with a remit to refine the footballing structure at United, with lucrative bonuses for winning a trophy or getting into the top four.

The two have been close for many years, with the Liverpool boss even ringing Rangnick before he took his first management role at Mainz.

But he said: “I found myself it’s not easy when you come in the middle of the season. That’s a massive challenge because the things you want to change on the pitch, we don’t have time for that. “There’s no chance of that. It will be interesting.” Klopp added: “When I was a really young coach at Mainz he called me and asked plenty of questions.

We have to earn the right to get to that final and we will give everything with our supporters to make sure that happens.” Scotland manager Clarke said: “I don’t think it matters who we were going to get, it was always going to be tough. “We will go away and do our homework on Ukraine and try to come up with a winning formula.” ​Russia or Poland will host Sweden or Czech Republic in the other pathway to Qatar.

In February 2017, just nine months after their 5,000-1 title miracle, the fairy tale unravelled in a brutal sacking that left a bitter aftertaste. Now fate has dealt the great ‘Tinkerman’ a deserved curtain call. And when the Italian returns to the King Power for the first time as a visiting manager tomorrow, he is guaranteed a thunderous ovation. “Of course I was sad that I never said goodbye,” said Ranieri. “But we know that’s how it works in football sometimes – and now is the moment to say hello to all my people in Leicester again.” The Watford head coach, 70, has only made one excursion into his old empire since he was axed – for the tearful tribute to tragic former chairman Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha three years ago. An impressive cast of Leicester legends, including Ranieri and his predecessor Nigel Pearson, turned out for the 0-0 draw against Burnley which served as an extended memorial after the helicopter crash claimed the Foxes owner and four other lives. Ranieri said: “You can imagine how it felt – Khun Vichai was a fantastic man, a fantastic chairman, always happy, always smiling.” But Ranieri’s enduring images of Leicester are all enshrined in that magic carpet ride to the title.

Ranieri said: “I think the Leicester story opened the minds of all the ‘little’ teams. “It was a great story: Never, never give up. If you people together. But you know, there are very few times when I think about my past. “Of course the images which always remain are of the chairman and at the end with Bocelli and all the crowd around us, crazy with happiness. “I’m a shy man, and I don’t want to show my emotion too much, but if I am surprised, sometimes little tears happen. “It’s true, this will be a very emotional game for me, and I’m very proud to have played my part in Leicester’s fairy tale and their place in football history. “I know it will be emotional before and after the match, but for 90 minutes I am their opponent and I will try to do my best.” So how did the dream fade so rapidly? Ranieri was sacrificed on the back of a torrid run yielding just five points from a possible 30. He said: “I think it’s normal, when a team achieves Champions League football for the first time, all their mental energy goes into Europe. “I was very sad, and I think the fans were also sad.” Return of the king believe, if you are strong in the bad moments, you can go over (expectations).” Another of Ranieri’s abiding memories is striker Jamie Vardy’s 25 goals firing the Foxes to glory. Ranieri said: “Three years before I arrived, he was working in a factory – he became one of the best strikers in the Premier League.”

Bielsa feels indebted to Leeds and the supporters because of the backing they have given him during his four successful seasons at Elland Road. Leeds are just one place above the drop zone ahead of this evening’s clash with Brighton and Bielsa said: “I have to fight to deserve what Leeds have done for me. “Because of what they pay me, because of the affection I receive and because of the construction of the project here, whether that be the investment in the facilities or Fighter Bielsa owes it to fans BRIGHTON v LEEDS KO: 5.30pm, Sky Sports Ref: Craig Pawson the footballers. The least I can is be grateful and fight against the adversity as a minimal response to what I have received. “In a club that’s bought Rodrigo Moreno, James, Raphinha, Llorente, Firpo, Koch – many signings. The capital invested means I have been given the resources. “I need to put the point of correction to where I think it should be. “To summarise, I think the club have put enough resources at my disposal for the results to be different.” Leeds have won just two Premier League games and Bielsa refuses to blame their lengthy injury list for their poor start. He insists the buck stops with him and says the club and the fans deserve better than to be languishing 17th in the table. “I can’t attribute the position in the table to the injuries, nor to an insufficient amount of players,” said Bielsa. “What’s left is the management of the players that I have and that’s where the focus of attention is. “The injuries are not one of the reasons why we’re there and, of course, it worries me the position we occupy in the table. “I’m in charge of a group of footballers who warrant and deserve to be in a higher position and the club has trusted in me. “One of the aspects which shows this confidence is what they pay me to do this job and, of course, these results are not what’s expected.” The Amex Stadium will be a tough place for Bielsa to try to halt Leeds’ slide and Brighton did the double over them last season. Bielsa admires Graham Potter’s side and said: “They are a team that’s flexible in the way they line up and they play players in different positions. They do this very naturally and efficiently.” ■PLENTY TO SHOUT ABOUT: Bielsa tries to fire up his Leeds side Shane Duffy may have hit rock bottom in 2020-21. But Brighton manager Graham Potter says the Irishman is in the best form he has seen as he prepares to face Leeds.

He recently earned big praise from Republic of Ireland boss Stephen Kenny, who said he had never seen the 29-year- old pass the ball so well during the 0-0 draw with Portugal when he won his 50th cap. It is a view that has not gone unnoticed by Potter, who said: “I would say Shane is in the best moment I’ve seen him during my time here. “I’ve been really impressed and I’d echo Stephen’s comments in terms of how impressive he’s been as a human being through a really tough period in his life. “Sometimes you have to hit the bottom and then you go back up again. “And probably if you speak to Shane he would suggest that’s what happened for him.”

Lage’s (inset) vision of turning Wolves into more of a passing and possession-based side is taking shape. The Portuguese coach deploys an attacking 3-4-3 system which requires their attacking players to work back when the side are out of possession.

This is important. “That is why I want everyone involved to work as a team.” Lage only has a small squad at his disposal and will be without Willy Boly today through injury. The Wolves coach knows his resources will be stretched with eight games in the next five weeks.

Smith thrust him straight back in the starting line-up for last week’s 2-1 win over Southampton – his first match in charge – but then took him off at half-time. Billy Gilmour, another player ignored by Farke, went on to star in a super second-half show that Cantwell had to watch from the sidelines. But new boss Smith backed Cantwell to reclaim the form that made him an England Under-21 star. He said: “He has all the attributes to be a top Premier League player. “He was disappointed to come off but he was in the dressing NORWICH v WOLVES Kick-off: 3pm Referee: Simon Hooper room afterwards congratulating everyone on the win. “There is a talented footballer there – we want to work with him and will continue to work with him. It won’t take a lot to get him back on it and back close to the levels that we need in the Premier League.” The Saints win gave Smith a dream start and lifted the Canaries off the bottom of the table. Now they are gunning for three wins in a row by beating Wolves at home today. Smith added: “There’s a lot of points to play for and a lot of teams within reach.” Midfielder Kieran Dowell is back in contention following illness but defenders Christoph Zimmermann and Sam Byram are still out. Long-term absentee Byram will top up his fitness levels with an hour or so for the Under-23s on Monday. The fixtures computer did Farke no favours by pairing Norwich with Liverpool and then Manchester City at the start of the season. But it has also given Smith two home games to start his spell and a big chance to cement a lasting relationship with the fans. He said: “You want to win your home games and put in good performances. “In this league the togetherness you can create with the supporters at your own stadium can be an advantage and we have to make every advantage count.” Smith has also been boosted by confirmation that sporting director Stuart Webber has decided to stay on via a rolling 12-month contract.

Lions defender Jake Cooper is back after a ban, but Conor Mahoney will be absent for at least a couple of weeks after re-injuring his hamstring. Luton v Cardiff Luton hope to have goalkeeper Simon Sluga back after self-isolation, but James Shea will continue to deputise if he is not available. Kieffer Moore is expected to continue up front for Cardiff after dispelling any concerns over his fitness against Hull in midweek. PETERBOROUGH v BARNSLEY POSH could have midfielder Joel Randall (thigh, left) back in contention, but striker Jack Marriott (hamstring) will still be sidelined.

Blackburn will check on defender Daniel Ayala (ankle), while Dutchman Jan Paul van Hecke is available again following suspension. Swansea v Reading SWANS manager Russell Martin has a full squad to select from, but he could make changes. Reading boss Veljko Paunovic appears to have no fresh selection concerns. Croatian forward Alen Halilovic is pushing for inclusion, while Andy Carroll awaits his first start for the Royals. SHEFF UNITED v BRISTOL CITY TOMORROW NEW Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom is likely to be without midfielder John Fleck, who collapsed during the midweek win over Reading. City will be without Joe Williams (hamstring), but Nathan Baker (head) should be okay to play. Missing Mitro no Ful stop SILVA KNOWS THE SCORE FULHAM boss Marco Silva insists he is not panicking at the prospect of being without scoring sensation Aleksandar Mitrovic. The Serbian striker has hit 21 goals this season to top the scoring charts across all four divisions, with his team now a point clear at the top. And he is on course to smash the goalscoring record for the division (31) set by Brentford’s Ivan Toney last year. But Mitrovic, along with five other Fulham players, missed Wednesday’s disappointing goalless draw against Derby and is doubtful for today’s clash with Preston at Deepdale after a sickness bug swept Silva’s squad. Young Brazilian Rodrigo Muniz, who has three goals in ■■ by TONY BANKS eight games this season, is set to step in again, but Silva (inset) insists there are enough goals in his team without Mitrovic. The Cottagers boss said: “Of course Mitro’s numbers are fantastic, but we are spreading the goals as well as we can. I want more but we will get more. “If you see the numbers of Neeskens Kebano, who has four goals, and you look at his story at this club, I am sure that at the end of this season he will score more than in these past years. “Harry Wilson? I know that when we finish the season his goals and assists for a winger will be very good. I have no doubt about it. Fabio DOM-INANT POSITION Bournemouth goal machine Dominic Solanke insists there is no need to panic over their mini-slump. The Cherries have won just one of their last four games and face another tough task at home to fifth-placed Coventry today. But Solanke, who has scored 16 goals in 20 games, said: “We have still got a good margin between us and third place but we are disappointed when we don’t get the three points. There is ■ONE OF MANY: The Serbian star strikes against Peterborough ■■ by ALEX CROOK no panic. We’re not even at the halfway point yet and we’re in a really good position. “We knew that the whole season wouldn’t go smoothly, we’re having a bit of a dip right now. “But the most important thing is that we try to get back to winning ways as soon as possible. “We have got such quality in the team and very versatile players, so I am confident we will do that.” ■NET BUSTER: Aleksandar Mitrovic will leave big goalscoring shoes to fill Carvalho has already scored four, at 19 years old, from only nine games. “The goals are there. We are scoring. Of course I want more, I want more from set- pieces, but we are creating chances.” Silva added: “Rodrigo is working very hard every single day. He is Lee gets physical LEE BOWYER has urged his Birmingham grafters to play to their strengths and not to shy away from being physical. Bowyer kept the Blues up in 18th place last term after taking charge in March. But they have not won for three games after having a man sent off in each of their last two outings. Ahead of today’s visit by Blackpool, boss Bowyer said: “Our strength is the physicality. When I arrived last season, that is why we stayed up. We learning. Everything is different from Brazil, but he is openminded and trying to get everything right. “Being the second option can be good for him, because it gives him more time to keep improving. “If the other striker is scoring, that is good for the team. He knows that, but he is ready when we need him.” ■■ by JAMES NURSEY outfought teams. When players play for me, I expect a certain amount of effort and fight. That is the basics of the game. You have to compete. “I am disappointed with the way some of the decisions are going against us. But we can’t change, because if we can’t compete, then we will lose every week. “That is a strength of ours – sometimes we overpower teams.”

DS1ST Saturday, November 27, 2021 The NO.1 pullout that scores EVERY time 7 Bottom line Win or bust for Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom has vowed to bring the good times back to Sheffield United following the shock sacking of Slavisa Jokanovic. Blades fans are unhappy about the appointment of Heckingbottom to replace Jokanovic (inset) as Bramall Lane boss. But the former Barnsley, Leeds and Hibernian manager is convinced he can win them over. And United’s board are so certain that he will make a success of his new job that they have handed him a contract until 2027. Heckingbottom, 44, has stepped up from managing the Under-23s and takes charge for the first time when the Blades, 16th in the table, host Bristol City today. He said: “It’s always a battle to get the fans behind you when you are in charge, that’s for sure, and the only way to do it is by winning football matches. “Managers will be judged on results, and that goes for me, so I know what I’m letting myself in for. “There has been too much disappointment here so far this season and maybe that’s because there is still a hangover from relegation last season. “I want to put the smile back on Carlisle v Walsall Carlisle are hoping to have Joe Riley and Jack Armer available, with both progressing well in their recovery from injuries, but Lewis Alessandra remains out. Walsall winger Brendan Kiernan, a goalscorer in midweek, is a doubt with a foot injury. Crawley v Mansfield Will Ferry (knock) is a doubt for Crawley, while 10 first-team players have been unable to take part in full training due to injuries in the camp. Rhys Oates is a doubt for Mansfield, while Kellan Gordon could also be assessed ahead of the clash. Forest Green v Bristol Rovers Forest Green are waiting on the fitness of Kane Wilson (ankle). Boss Rob Edwards has confirmed he has no new injury concerns. Bristol Rovers will be without Alfie Kilgour (knee), but keeper James Belshaw (head) may be assessed. Northampton v Leyton Orient Northampton boss Jon Brady is expected to name an unchanged side. Leyton Orient’s Callum Reilly is predicted to miss out again with a troublesome groin problem, while Craig Clay is also doubtful. Port Vale v Hartlepool Port Vale will be without Tom Conlon (ban), while James Wilson is absent with a broken foot. Gavan Holohan could return to Hartlepool’s line-up after making an appearance in midweek. Jamie Sterry serves the second of a three-match suspension. Rochdale v Exeter ■■ by bill cooper Jimmy Keohane (foot) is a doubt for Rochdale, while Aaron Morley (knock) will be assessed. Kyle Taylor will be back in the Exeter squad after returning from injury. Boss Matt Taylor is hopeful Pierce Sweeney will be fit to play. people’s faces and I’ll only do that if we are successful on the pitch. “That means winning games of football and getting promotion – and I am confident of doing both. “If I get it right, it will help this club for many years to come, but, short and long term, it’s all about results. “I’ve got my way of managing and that’s not going to change. I’ve also got total belief in the players here. There is real quality in that dressing-room and I know what they are capable of. “Putting things in place to outperform every other football club in the Championship, that’s the priority this season. That is the focus and that’s what the fans want to see.” Despite their lowly position in the league, alongside a run of just two wins in seven games, the Blades are still only eight points adrift of the play-off places. Heckingbottom added: “The fans will be here in their thousands to watch their team against Bristol City and they want a win. “But the Championship is unforgiving and we have to be on it from the word go. We have to make sure we can deliver three points.” Salford v Oldham Scunthorpe v Bradford Sutton v Barrow POINT TO PROVE: ■ Paul Heckingbottom is out to get the Blades back to winning ways Swindon v Harrogate Tranmere v Stevenage TEAM TALK Suspended duo Matty Willock and Ash Hunter will miss out for Salford, while midfielder Matty Lund returns to the side after serving a one-match ban.

Scunthorpe are uncertain about the fitness of Mason O’Malley (groin), but Tom Pugh misses out through suspension. Bradford are set to assess the trio of Lee Angol, Caolan Lavery and Charles Vernam (all knocks). Sutton defender Joe Kizzi could return after shaking off a knock, but Tobi Sho-Silva, Enzio Boldewijn and Harry Beautyman all remain sidelined. An illness means Barrow manager Mark Cooper could be struggling for numbers. Swindon will hope defender Romoney Crichlow recovers from an ankle injury in time to feature. Harrogate captain Josh Falkingham faces a late test on a groin injury after hobbling off at Carlisle, while Warren Burrell is also battling a calf issue. Jay Spearing (ban) could return to the fold for Tranmere after making a brief outing against Bradford, but will be competing with Nicky Maynard. Stevenage caretaker boss Robbie O’Keefe is waiting for an update on Luke Prosser’s (illness) availability. Boro to go Wild ■■ by SIMON BIRD JONNY Howson has ordered Middlesbrough to get a win under new boss Chris Wilder. The Teessiders conceded twice late on against Preston in midweek to lose at home, having drawn Wilder’s first game. It is third time lucky against Huddersfield today after Wilder accused the squad of playing like individuals. Boro midfielder Howson said: “Wilder? He expects work-rate and attitude. “That won’t be a problem. That is his main message. “With regards to technically being good enough, sometimes it can go for you or against you. “We want a win under the new manager as quick as possible and to build.” OXFORD v ROTHERHAM TEAM TALK AFC Wimbledon v Fleetwood Ayoub Assal is unavailable for Wimbledon due to suspension. Henry Lawrence may come back in. Fleetwood interim boss Stephen Crainey will take charge of the game following the departure of Simon Grayson and he will have Anthony Pilkington back.

Anthony Scully, Liam Bridcutt and Tom Hopper will miss out. Accrington striker Colby Bishop returns from a ban. Matt Butcher and Joe Pritchard are absent.

The horse was on the verge of becoming a disappointment but, fitted with a tongue tie for the first time, he travelled sweetly under Sean Bowen. Betfair cut the winner to 16-1 from 40-1 for the Stayers’ Hurdle in March. Murphy said: “I have always said he is a good horse and while I felt ‘he has always let me down’ is probably too strong, I just thought I would stick a tongue tie on him and he has seen his race out really strong. “We’ll look at something like Ascot [Long Walk Hurdle] over Christmas. I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be a Stayers’ Hurdle horse.” Paisley Park, the 2019 Stayers’ Hurdle hero who was wearing cheekpieces for the first time, did not hit his usual flat spot and was travelling well until landing awkwardly three out. Thomas Darby challenged after the penultimate obstacle and Paisley Park had no answer, dropping back to third with On The Blind Side taking second. Paisley Park’s trainer Emma Lavelle said: “He travelled well and he jumped great, but he just hasn’t quickened.” Jonbon established himself as a serious horse for the future when powering to a six-length success under Aidan Coleman in the Play Ladbrokes 5-A-Side On Football National Hunt Maiden Hurdle earlier on the card. So impressed were Paddy Power by Nicky Henderson’s brother to Douvan that they slashed him to 3-1 favourite for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle. Henderson said: “He can get on his toes but doesn’t do anything wrong. He got a bit warm coming here, but it was great that it was Newbury as it wasn’t too far to travel. But he will travel – he’ll have to.” ■ DARBY RACER: Thomas Darby wins the Ladbrokes Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury yesterday

STARFORM: BRAVO TEAM DANGER: Santonito WELFARE FIRST: Shishkin Nicky Henderson has defended his decision not to run Shishkin in next weekend’s Betfair Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown. The Grade One had been the nominated starting point for last season’s impressive Arkle winner, but Henderson announced on Wednesday that he was not entirely happy with his stable star. Shishkin’s rivals at Sandown would have included Willie Mullins’ star two-miler Chacun Pour Soi, HENDERSON HITS BACK ■■ BY JASON HEAVEY while Energumene and Allaho are also in contention for the Irish trainer. Henderson’s decision not to run has attracted plenty of debate but he insists Shishkin’s best interests are uppermost in his mind. He said: “He is fit, but I would not say his gallop on Saturday was brilliant. I just haven’t been that happy. “His tracheal wash on Monday was iffy but not wrong. I just know he could be better than he is at the moment. It is not fitness – I’m just not happy with him. That’s our job. “People can think what they like. I am just doing my job and making sure he remains a very good horse. If I ran him next week, I’d probably ruin him for life. “I want to run in it but the horse comes first, surely. Anyone with any common sense, who has ever known anything about a racehorse, will tell you that.”

KEY TO THE CARDS: our racecards are designed to give you a better, easier to understand guide to the runners. Brackets after the racecard number indicate the draw in Flat races. In the form figures, an ‘L’ indicates the horse finished in last place and a # indicates Bumper form. Figures in brackets after each horse’s name indicate the number of days since the horse last ran. (C) indicates a course winner, (D) indicates a winner over the same distance as today’s race. (B) or (V) indicates that the horse wears blinkers or a visor. (T) indicates that the horse wears a tongue strap. * indicates if wearing blinkers or visor for first time. (P) indicates that the horse is wearing a Cheek Piece. (BF) stands for beaten favourite. (F) is winner on firm going, (G) on good going, (S) on soft going and (A) on the all weather. The figures in the last column after the jockey’s name is an exclusive Clockform rating giving a guide to the horse’s chance. The highest figure denotes the top rated, which is also pinpointed by a ★.

STARFORM: Summergrounds Danger: Knowwhentoholdem Aidan is up for the Cup AIDAN O’BRIEN is double handed in the Japan Cup at Tokyo racecourse tomorrow as he tries to break his duck in one of the world’s biggest races. The Ballydoyle genius (right) saddles Broome with Ryan Moore taking the ride. And Yutaka Take – the country’s most successful jockey – gets the leg-up on the appropriately named Japan. Both horses contested the Breeders’ Cup Turf at Del Mar with Broome finishing second and getting ■■ by JASON HEAVEY within half a length of Yibir while Japan was fourth after meeting trouble in running. It will be Broome’s 11th outing of the year, after he started his season back in March when winning a Listed race at Naas. O’Brien said: “The Japan Cup is a very difficult race to win and always extremely competitive, so the two horses will be up against it.” Saturday, November 27, 2021 in association with HONEYSUCKLE TO BLOSSOM AGAIN AT FAIRYHOUSE Hurdling heroine HONEYSUCKLE (2.40) can continue to bloom in the Grade One Baroneracing. com Hatton’s Grace at Fairyhouse. Twice a winner of this race already, the performances have contributed to her 12-race unbeaten haul. Narrowly in front a year ago, she pulled out enough to thwart Ronald Pump and triumph number three is surely forthcoming. Stormy Ireland should ensure this is a good test, which will put more emphasis on the Champion Hurdle heroine’s stamina. She gets 7lb from Saldier, a rival she is rated 3lb superior to, as she bids to match Solerina and Apple’s Jade in this race’s roll of honour. Fellow mare IMPERVIOUS (1.05) is fancied to continue her winning streak in the Baroneracing.com Royal Bond Novice Hurdle. Strong at the finish when racing five lengths clear in a Grade Three at Down Royal, she is worthy of this jump in class. She gets 7lb from ■SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS: Rachael Blackmore celebrates winning last season’s Champion Hurdle on Honeysuckle SUNDAY SERVICE Melissa Jones batters the bookies power-packed rival My Mate Mozzie, who has impressed many but is not a flawless jumper. JP McManus’ famed colours were carried to victory aboard Cheltenham Festival favourite Jonbon yesterday and GLENS OF ANTRIM (3.10) is tipped to follow his lead in the Baroneracing.com Handicap Hurdle. The six-year-old has untapped potential in the contest worth €48,000 to the winner. She finished a respectable sixth at the 2021 Cheltenham Festival and then fourth in a Fairyhouse Grade One. Given a mark of 128 for her debut in this sphere, that looks workable if she is a little more settled now. At Leicester, DORISA QUEEN (3.30) should defy a 7lb weights rise in the Next Meeting Thursday 2nd December Mares’ Handicap Hurdle. 9

StarForm GYMSTAR ELUSIVE (12.09) is taken to edge out Warzone Tom in what should be a thrilling Ladbrokes Gold Collar Final at Crayford’s matinee meeting today. Two £10,000-to-thewinner deciders feature among four finals on the live-on- SportyStuff TV/RPGTV programme from the Kent track, with John Mullins’ runner just fancied to again grab gold in one of the sport’s traditional Classics, hosted for many years at Catford. Gymstar Elusive has always been well regarded with his high-profile owners – Mark Bates of Farloe Verdict fame, Kieren Hickey (Farloe Tango, Fear Zafonic) and former legendary trainer Charlie Lister. He could get first run on the Liz McNair-trained Warzone Tom, who has been brilliant thus far, overcoming unpromising positions before powering through. Owned by Brendan Keogh and the KSS Syndicate, he is good enough if close at halfway. The Ladbrokes Cesarewitch Final also graces the card and the start could be crucial with Blueberry Bullet and Alaskan Dawn both impressive in the heats off the front – and either will take some stopping over this 874m trip. Preference though is ■ HARD TO CATCH: Gymstar Elusive Gymstar poised for gold medal by JONATHAN HOBBS narrowly for Heather Dimmock’s Alaskan Dawn (12.39, below), although a smart exit will be needed to clear in-form Salacres Pippy next door. The two other finals on the card are the Ladbrokes.com Kent National Hurdle and Kent Rose Bowl where the votes go to Ricky Holloway’s Nomansland Flyer (11.39) and John Mullins’ RussiaN Blake (1.09). Crayford shares the RPGTV stage with Limerick tonight where the major event is the Matchbook Exchange St Leger Final. Pat Buckley’s Deerjet Sydney, the 2020 English Derby champion, eyes another title, although Part Blake (9.24) could be tough to hold for Graham Holland if finding those trapping boots again after a missed break in the semis. ■ BIG-RACE winners Signet Ace, Forest Gold and Bubbly Apache clash in a fascinating Arena Racing Eclipse Final at Nottingham on Monday, while Crossfield Dusty is favourite for tomorrow’s Gain Greyhound Nutrition Sovereign Stakes Final at Towcester. ■ THE 2021 Greyhound of the Year Awards will take place on Sunday, February 13.

12 Saturday, November 27, 2021 DS1ST StarBets BRITAIN’S NUMBER ONE BETTING GUIDE IT’S REECE DINGO DELIGHT: Dingo Dollar can strike Time to cash in with Dollar Five winners of last weekend’s Scoop6 go for the £215,904 bonus in the Ladbrokes Trophy, which also forms part of today’s competition. The opening leg at Newbury can go the way of course and distance winner Kalooki. He only just failed to beat Espoir De Teillee over a shorter trip here on his handicap debut and runs off the same mark today. Calva D’Auge is the pick in leg two. He notched up a four-timer over hurdles on his recent reappearance and can strike again while the iron is hot. Newcastle’s Ant and Dec have hosted the return of I’m A Celebrity this week, and Dingo Dollar can land leg three in their native North East. His trainer and jockey won this race with Yorkhill last year, so a bold bid is expected with the tongue tie back on. The Ladbrokes Trophy is typically tricky looking but sticking with the Irish raiders could be the way to go, and Willie Mullins’ by LUKE PARKINSON Ontheropes fits the profile for this race as a previous Munster National winner. The unbeaten Monmiral is worth siding with to take the Fighting Fifth back at Newcastle. He has youth rather than experience on his side, but after his impressive win at Aintree last season, hopes are high for this term. The Scoop6 finale is back at Newbury and can go the way of Grey Diamond, who was a decent third at Ascot on his return and can improve with his yard in good form. Tips Newbury 1.15 Kalooki Newbury 1.50 Calva D’Auge Newcastle 2.05 Dingo Dollar Newbury 3.00 Ontheropes Newcastle 3.15 Monmiral Newbury 3.35 Grey Diamond LIGHTNING In-form James can add to United’s woes ■ ELECTRIC BLUE: Reece James has been in scintillating form for Chelsea. Inset, fit-again Romelu Lukaku PREMIER League leaders Chelsea look set to add to Manchester United’s woes tomorrow. The Old Trafford side, having now axed manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, have amassed just three wins from their last nine games in all competitions. And although stand-in boss Michael Carrick helped guide them to victory over Villarreal in midweek, Thomas Tuchel’s Blues are a different proposition. They have won five of their last six Premier League games and have conceded only four goals in the top flight this term. They too won impressively in midweek, thumping Juventus 4-0. United have the better recent record by far in this fixture – they are unbeaten in their last seven league games against Chelsea and have kept a clean sheet in their last four Premier League meetings. But I reckon that will change tomorrow and I have a hunch defender Reece James could be the man to help do the damage. He’s been in blistering form in recent weeks and netted against Juventus in midweek. Over his last seven starts for club and country, he’s scored four and added three assists – making him the Blues’ top scorer. James is an enhanced 5-1 with Sky Bet to score at any time and that seems by STEVE ANDERSON like a decent wager. He’s also 10-1 to net the opener, but I like the 9-4 on offer that he assists at least one goal. Midfielder Hakim Ziyech is another to watch on the assist front – he’s also 9-4 to provide at least one goal assist and he’s done just that in three of his last five games. Chelsea are big favourites to win the game at 4-7 with Sky Bet while United are a massive 5-1 with Betfred and the draw 3-1. I just can’t see anything other than a home win. United have been shipping goals at a worrying rate and prior to the Villarreal clash they had conceded an incredible 21 in seven games – an average of three a game. That’s why I fancy a 3-1 victory for Tuchel’s side at odds of 11-1. Sky Bet offer an enhanced 16-1 for Romelu Lukaku to grab the first goal and the Blues to win 2-1 or 3-1, which is certainly tempting. After missing six games through injury, he was back on the bench in midweek and will be champing at the bit if he starts tomorrow. The odds-on for a home win won’t make you rich but I’d take the 13-8 on the handicap for a Blues win giving United a one-goal start – or even the 3-1 for Chelsea to win and four goals or more to be scored in the match. City to edge Moyes’men in Sunday showdown TOMORROW’S first round of Manchester v London is at the Etihad as Man City play host to West Ham. City, who sit second in the Premier League table, have certainly had the better of fourth-placed West Ham in recent years. In fact, since the Hammers last beat them in September 2015, City have won nine of the 11 meetings, with two draws. That said, one of by MARK PEARSON those stalemates came last season at the London Stadium, while City were narrow 2-1 winners in their home fixture. David Moyes’ (right) men have already dumped City out of the EFL Cup on penalties last month and will be buoyed by their recent beating of Liverpool. Last week’s loss to Wolves was their only defeat in nine games, while City’s only loss in their last 10 was at home to Crystal Palace. With both sides full of confidence and in winning form in Europe in midweek, this is unlikely to be a one-sided affair, especially as the hosts look set to be without Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish again. PEARSON’S TOP PICK FIDDLERONTHEROOF Newbury 3.00 City are 2-7 for the win with West Ham a generous 9-1. The draw is 5-1. Both teams to score at 10-11 looks overpriced, while the score draw at 6-1 also makes some appeal. However, City came from behind against PSG in midweek while missing some key players and can get over the line here. The 7-4 they win and both teams score looks the play. Tomorrow’s early Premier League offering sees two teams who can’t buy a win take each other on. Brentford and Everton have both been leaking goals for fun, but I can see a low-scoring draw here and the 11-4 about a 0-0 or 1-1 score line appeals most.

FEATURES ExpEdition with StEvE BackShall Sunday, 8pm, Dave Action man Steve braves the planet’s wild places The adventurer is off round the world seeking out thrills and wilderness Kayaks at the ready for the ultimate white-water challenge Never one to shy away from a challenge, Steve Backshall is leaving the Berkshire home he shares with his Olympian wife Helen Glover and their three kids and going in search of adventure and world firsts. His first mission takes him to Kamchatka to join a team of world-class kayakers on white water so extreme its descent has never been attempted. During the six-part series the 48-year-old explorer and naturalist will also navigate the Arabian Desert and an uncharted volcanic underworld, and go in search of the elusive snow leopard in the remote region of Kyrgyzstan. He tells us more… Hi, Steve. What are you looking forward to most in this series? I’m excited about it because it’s going to be different, taking us to the planet’s wildest places, exploring them, finding out new things but, crucially, finding ways to protect those places. All our expeditions are attempting world firsts, from making the first ascent of a mountain never climbed before to paddling a river that no one has ever run. But more than that, we’re thinking about conservation, about the ways that we can protect these places before it’s too late. Expedition is about the unknown. Not just unknown places but unknown occurrences – that we have no idea what’s going to happen next. Every single thing that happens on these expeditions is down to chance and because of that it has a fresh element of surprise. Expedition is also about the dark, wild, unexplored parts of our planet. In every single one of these expeditions, there is a surprise – and not always a good one. How did you decide on the locations for series two? It was very much about diversity, about making sure that we cover every possible habitat. So that could be under the sea, it could be the high mountains or deserts, rainforests and the wild volcanic landscapes in Kamchatka. I think we’ve managed to show some of the most exciting, challenging, rugged and remote landscapes that are left on planet Earth. What’s your favourite location from this series? It’s pretty much impossible to choose He finds nature in the raw my favourite location. Every single one has had so much to offer. The one that took me most by surprise was Saudi Arabia. It has so much more exoticism, so much more aesthetic beauty than I ever expected. There is something very special about a desert night with the sky so clear. It feels like you could reach out and pluck the stars. Which of the world firsts you achieved was the most thrilling to shoot? Our expedition into the Moukalaba- Doudau National Park in Gabon, which is on the west coast of Central Africa. It was a place that enjoys very little protection. We were really hoping that our expedition would be able to afford it World Heritage Site status. We found species of primates and also paddled down a stretch of river that was so wild and so challenging that it pretty much took my team to their limits. What was the most dangerous moment you faced? I think when we were making the first descent of a white-water river in Kamchatka. At one point I got swept past the rest of the team and pinballed down this white-water river, bouncing off the rocks and the boulders. Retrospectively, it was probably a class five white-water river – totally unrun. We knew nothing about it. If it had just plunged over a waterfall, then that would have been it for me. Certainly at the end, when the team ‘It’s vitally important to protect these places before it’s too late’ finally managed to chase me down and catch up with me, I was really shaken up. Why is this series more important than ever for the natural world? I think, you know, it feels like our planet is shrinking. We have so many people, they make such huge demands on our planet’s resources, and the few places we have left that are untouched and are pristine are more valuable now than they have ever been before. So exploring them with the lightest of touches and finding out the ways that we can better conserve them for the future is more important than it has ever been. What was the most important lesson you learnt about yourself while filming this series? That I am definitely too old for this… Oh, God! Also, that it is more and more important for me now to protect these places so that my children can see them in the future. 4 HOT TV

FEATURES The hoT Zone: AnThrAx Wednesday, 9pm, National Geographic Channel D LETTER DREAD LETTER DAY Horror hit America a second time in 2001 when letters containing deadly anthrax were sent out in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. As a result, five people died and the entire country was left in a state of panic over the unseen microscopic enemy that could strike anywhere. This new six- part drama about the anthrax Tony Goldwyn as Bruce Ivins A drama tells of how the US found itself under attack yet again shortly after 9/11 strikes, which started just a week after 9/11, reveals how after initially being misdirected by a set of false leads, scientists and the FBI closed in on the culprit. An earlier series of The Hot Zone, set in 1989 and starring Julianna Margulies, documented the Ebola crisis and was a huge hit for National Geographic. In this follow-up, we join FBI agent Matthew Ryker, played by Daniel Dae Kim, three weeks after 9/11. When a man dies in mysterious circumstances, Matthew has to convince his bosses that the country could be in danger – again. Meanwhile, microbiologist Dr Bruce Ivins (Tony Goldwyn) has his own theories about who is responsible, but his paranoia begins to affect the investigation. As the incidents continue and the pressure mounts, Ryker and Ivins find themselves on different paths. “I remember the anthrax attacks, and coming so soon after 9/11 it felt like there was a string of attacks going on against America,” says Daniel, who played Jin-Soo Kwon in Lost. “I remember everyone feeling very confused and vulnerable. When I read the script, these were the feelings that came back to me and that was very compelling.” Also known to Hawaii Five-0 fans as Detective Daniel Dae Kim plays Matthew Ryker Dr Jean Malecki (Michelle Giroux) with Agent Ryker Chin Ho Kelly, Daniel found a new challenge playing a driven FBI agent – especially in a story where fact really was stranger than fiction. “There are certain elements to this that sound unbelievable – as are the lengths some of the agents went to,” he says. “There’s a real needle-inthe-haystack part of the probe that Ryker is involved with. I don’t think I could go to the lengths he goes to. “The investigation takes many paths before it reaches the end and it taught me a few lessons, especially on the assumptions we make about people, and who we regard as criminals. Sometimes, it’s the one you least expect.” PhoToS: GETTy hoT Tv 5

Kirstie’s roping in her TV co-host Phil Spencer, who will attempt to impress with his giftwrapping skills. Meanwhile, Kirstie’s florist sister Sofie will create some spectacular floral arrangements. In the kitchen, we’ll sample Christmas Mauritian-style as MasterChef winner Shelina Permalloo cooks up a luxurious seafood showstopper. And the drinks are on Coinneach MacLeod – aka the Hebridean Baker. Model and reality star Christine McGuinness – wife of presenter Paddy – had always wondered if there was a genetic reason why all three of her children have autism. And as she filmed this documentary to learn more about the condition – which affects how people interact with the world – she began to recognise something in herself, leading to her own diagnosis of autism. In this show, we follow Paddy and Christine as she makes that discovery. The couple also reveal their journey with their own children – twins Leo and Penelope, eight, and Felicity, five – and speak to other parents of autistic children, as well as experts on the condition. Christine gave birth to the twins in 2013 and, as they grew older, she and Paddy didn’t see the signs that their kids weren’t developing as they should. When her mum pointed out the twins weren’t talking or eating as they should be at their age, Christine had to admit that developmental milestones were being missed. The consequent autism diagnosis gave the couple the opportunity to better understand their children, but it did bring its own challenges. While Christine threw herself into finding everything she could to support them, Paddy found it difficult to even talk about. He now hopes the show will make him confront issues he’s been avoiding. We see the pair take an AQ test to help identify autism – and Christine and Paddy with Christine’s Felicity, Leo and Penelope results shine more light on the matter. Further investigation then led to her formal diagnosis. Through this moving one-off documentary we see Paddy and Christine get closer as they learn more about what autism means for their family.

A killer, or maybe more than one, stalks Camp Pleasant where campers play crazy games for cash – and clues to the slayer’s identity. One camper is farcically “killed” while the murderer who keeps their identity hidden is the winner. Host Bobby Mair tells us more… Hi Bobby, are you pleased to be back at Camp Pleasant? It’s so exciting to get the chance to play Bobby again. It’s like a sequel to a horror movie. There are more murders, more episodes, more contestants and you’ll have to wait and see about how many killers. What can we expect? If you’re a fan of the show you can expect more fun murders, a lot of drama between the campers and some antics. It’s a murder mystery injected into a horror movie. It’s such an epic series and even if I wasn’t in it, I’d watch it. It’s an Camp Counsellor Bobby Mair exciting show where you’re trying to figure out who the killer is all the time and along the way there’s romances, bromances and betrayal. It is a great ride. We saw some pretty gruesome deaths in series one. What can we expect this time around? Some hilarious, disgusting deaths. There is a shower death that is one of the grossest things I’ve ever seen – but in a great way! Are there any surprising twists? There are definitely lots of new twists in store – but if I told you, I’d have to kill you! What’s best about Camp Pleasant? My favourite thing about Camp Pleasant is that Camp Counsellor Bobby has never left. It’s his home and he loves it. The best thing is probably the lake. If you swim deep enough you can find a body. Personally, I like the campers’ dorm cabin. This season you’ll see a lot of tension and fighting in that dorm. HOT TV 7

There’s nothing she wants less than to have everyone looking forward to Christmas, laughing and joking. She feels incredibly isolated and she’s shutting everyone out. How does she come to look at her scars? Leyla is worried about her and although she doesn’t want to force her, she knows that Priya, in her mind, will be building this up. Priya thinks she’s deformed and that’s it for the rest of her life. Leyla’s trying to help her find an outfit, which is difficult with the bandages and everything. They have a big chat and then Priya says to Leila, “I’ve got to face this, haven’t I?” How was filming this scene? It’s a really sad moment. It took two hours in make-up to do the scars, but I didn’t look at them before I went on set as I wanted to get the reaction. For Priya – and me, actually – it’s incredibly hard and heartbreaking as what she sees is just not her body. She doesn’t know who she is any more. Does she manage to get herself dressed up for the party? She does. More than anything, she does it for Amba. She’s spent weeks in hospital gowns and jogging bottoms, so she wants her daughter to see her looking the way she remembers her. She puts on some make-up on and tries to feel a bit like herself again. I don’t think she does. But she is able to put on a bit of a show for her daughter. What’s happened brings back Priya’s issues with food, too… Well, it’s all very much intertwined with the emotions of what she’s going through. She’s not able to do much exercise, yet she is still having to eat more because her body needs to heal. I think before she knows it those issues are taking over. It all sounds very tough for her – and for you. How do you switch off when you go home? This has been the most challenging story for me since doing the eating disorder the first time. You feel a responsibility as an actor. It’s been a very hard schedule. You’ve been crying all day then you go home and set as I wanted to get the reaction. For have more scripts to learn, so it is hard to leave it at work. It is draining, but I’m an actress just conveying, not actually Emotional Priya finally sees her scars Rishi advises Priya to seek help going through it. SOAPS HOT TV 9

Ryan begs his friend to go to the police, only for Alya to walk in during their row. Ryan tells Alya what Zeedan’s been up to and Zee’s horrified later as Alya confronts Hashim. Then, after the van goes missing, Hashim makes a terrifying threat to Zeedan. Soon, the restaurant is engulfed in flames. But is Zeedan to blame? Daniel is jealous when his teasing leads Daisy to flirt with one of James’s teammates. Later, he’s gutted to be dumped for a footballer – while Summer tries to attract Daniel’s attention with a makeover. But when he wishes Daisy luck, it’s her turn to feel unlucky in love. Curtis says his and Emma’s wedding will be small as he doesn’t get on with family and all his friends are abroad. He says they need the cash for his treatment – but Emma plans to invite his family as a surprise. Curtis makes Emma wait outside during an appointment with his specialist. He’s thrown when a man named Neville arrives on the Street and tells Emma he’s Curtis’s dad. Gary and Maria offer Kelly a job at the barber’s, while Kelly worries about Stu’s health. Grace is in trouble after meeting Bernie for a drink and leaving baby Glory home alone. But she then shocks Aggie with an incredible offer. iNTERViEw Zeedan returned to the Street last month with his marriage over and now his bitter father-in-law is bribing him to launder money. Actor QAsim AkHtAR tells all… Does Zeedan feel relieved when he finally confesses all to Ryan? There is certainly something in the saying, “A problem shared is a problem halved.” I think he just tells him because he needs some advice. How does he feel when Ryan tells Alya everything? He realises he has shot himself in the foot. Far from helping him, Ryan has dropped him right in it with his sister. He knew she would want to try to help him – and that Hashim suggests an insurance job is exactly what she does. And this terrifies him because he wants to protect his sister. He feels he has let them both down and brought real danger to their door. Hashim suggests burning down the restaurant for the insurance money. How does Zeedan react? He can’t believe what he is hearing, but quite quickly he starts to realise that this might be a perfect solution. If it goes to plan and he gets away with it, his problems will all be solved. He is in such a hole that this may be the only option open to him. But someone’s inside the restaurant – how does he react? His dad died in a fire, so it is his worst nightmare. He doesn’t have time to think about anything other than trying to save them. Are you enjoying being back? I am loving being back and the storylines I have been given are exactly what I wanted – they have drama and grit. I am over the moon. Can you hint at what is to come? Well, the fire is certainly not the end of it. Zeedan’s ex-wife Marrium arrives in Weatherfield and we will see a different side to him. 10 HOT TV

HOROSCOPES Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19 Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20 RUSSELL GRANT Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 The offer of promotion or a new job is worth considering, but think carefully about what you are letting yourself in for. Avoid unnecessary risks. Changing your diet and using relaxation techniques could be the start of a healthier lifestyle. A friend has made an error over plans or events at the end of the week. Somebody with a strong personality will disagree with your plans, so prepare to defend your interests. If there’s something you want to do, don’t let anyone put you off. You are focused on a long-term goal and hope to win the support of a partner or relative. The possibility of a new source of income will arise – but don’t be too hasty to accept. 0905 789 3651 0905 789 3652 0905 789 3641 0905 789 3642 Gemini May 22 – June 22 Cancer June 23 – July 23 Leo July 24 – Aug 23 Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23 Not content to join in the usual round of activities, you are longing to get away from dull routine and escape into unknown territory and adventure. You want to please everyone but you won’t be able to do so if you’re working yourself to exhaustion. Have more patience. You can’t achieve all your goals immediately. Restoring peace will boost morale and people will be appreciative. Fretting about why you can’t get into the swing of your routines is turning you into your own worst enemy. It’s no time to act on impulse. A workmate will need your support after taking on too much, despite your warnings. Be careful you don’t end up overworked. 0905 789 3643 0905 789 3644 0905 789 3645 0905 789 3646 Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23 Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 22 Sagittarius Nov 23 – Dec 21 Capricorn Dec 22 – Jan 20 While you want to know what people are up to, you get annoyed when someone shows interest in your own affairs. Conversations will be interesting but you can’t ask all the questions. You may get drawn in to a neighbour’s problems, but don’t lose track of time – you have responsibilities. Career-wise, things are going your way – but it won’t all be easy. Travelling to escape familiar places is a strong temptation. You may not just be dreaming of it either. There’s a strong chance you’ll persuade a partner to book a long break. You won’t feel like venturing too far right now as you’d rather stay close to home. There’s someone you need to talk to and if it can’t be done in person, by phone will have to do. 0905 789 3647 0905 789 3648 0905 789 3649 0905 789 3650 **Calls cost 80p per minute plus your telephone company’s network access charge – maximum of five minutes duration.
