The Weekend’s Sport At A Glance

Take a look at the highlights of this weekend’s action.

  1. Football: League football returns with a bang

Game of the Weekend: Tottenham 3-2 West Ham.

Two very late strikes from Harry Kane saw Tottenham come from behind to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. A 90’+1 penalty proving the difference in a highly dramatic London Derby.

A memorable moment for 20-year-old Harry Winks, scoring on his Premier League debut.

And a moment to forget for this confident West Ham fan:

Elsewhere: Liverpool and Southampton shared the points, meaning Manchester City’s 2-1 win away at Crystal Palace saw them go top following Saturday’s fixtures.

Yaya Toure marked his first start this season with a match-winning performance, getting both the goals.

The winner provided us with the picture of the weekend:

So that left Chelsea needing a win to leapfrog City and finish the weekend in pole position.

Diego Costa’s first-half strike enough to defeat a struggling Middlesbrough side, who sit one point above the relegation zone.

  1. Andy Murray beats Djokovic in London

The World Number One ended the season with another win, this time in the Barclays ATP Finals beating Novak Djokovic in straight sets. Murray is now heavily tipped to be crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

3. The best of the European football action:

Red Bull Leipzig, founded in 2009, are the surprise leaders in Germany following their win (and Bayern Munich’s loss) this weekend.

Beating Bayer Leverkusen 3-2, Leipzig became the first promoted side to go 11 games unbeaten. They’ve now won the last six and sit three points clear.

Bayern lost to Borussia Dortmund as a result of an early Aubameyang strike in ‘Der Klassiker’.

In Turkey, Robin Van Persie scored a brace as Fenerbahce beat Galatasaray 2-0 in Kitalararasi Derbi.

Cristiano Ronaldo stole the show with a match-winning performance.

His hat-trick was the difference as Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid 3-0 and extended their lead at the top of La Liga.

He’s now scored 17 goals in 16 games for club and country this season.

 

4. Cricket: England lose the 2nd Test against India

England were bowled out for 158 giving the hosts a 246-run win in Visakhapatnam.

India are now undefeated at home in the last 16 tests.

The third test begins next Saturday in Mohali.

 

5. Anfield plays host to the Rugby League Four Nations – Australia hammer New Zealand

Over forty thousand watched as the Aussies deservedly beat the All Blacks 34-8 in a confident display.

After twenty minutes, Australia lead 20-0 and the win saw them regain the World number one ranking.
