Manchester City Women advance in Women's Champions League

Zvezda 2005 0-4 Manchester City Women (0-6 on aggregate)

It is a job well done from Manchester City Women, who have moved into the last 16 of the Women's Champions League.

They secured a convincing 4-0 away victory over Russian side Zvezda 2005 to seal a 6-0 win on aggregate.

It also meant that Nick Cushing's side, who won the Women's Super League last month, managed to keep a 19th clean sheet of the season in their 24th match in all competitions so far.

Goals from Lucy Bronze, Jen Beattie (two) and Izzy Christiansen secured the win in Russia today.

Chelsea Ladies need large away win

Wolfsburg Ladies v Chelsea Ladies (17:00 BST)

Chelsea Ladies' hopes of staying in the Women's Champions League are slim as they trail German side Wolfsburg 3-0 before this evening's last-32 second leg.

Two-time champions Wolfsburg, who reached last season's final after a 4-1 aggregate win over Chelsea in the last 16, host the second leg from 17:00 BST.

Visitors Chelsea, who are second in the English top flight, are playing in Europe for only the second season.

England winger Gemma Davison and South Korea's Ji So-Yun could both return. Davison and Ji both came off the substitutes bench in last Wednesday's first leg, after versatile midfielder Ana Borges was withdrawn because of a head injury.

Player suspended for betting on matches within his team's league


1860 Munich forward Ivica Olic has been suspended for two games and fined £18,000 for gambling on matches, including in the league he plays in.

The German Football Association (DFB) said there was "no evidence of betting manipulation" and the 37-year-old had not bet on his own side's matches.

But its rules do not allow players to gamble, or use a third party to do so.

The DFB said the bets, made between 26 August and 11 September, included nine on games in the German second division.

A power cut interrupted the World Cup qualifying match between Venezuela and Brazil in the Venezuelan city of Merida on Tuesday night. 

Brazil were leading 2-0 when the floodlights suddenly went dark in the 74th minute of play.

The match had to be stopped for 22 minutes until some of the lighting went back on. 

During the blackout, some Venezuelan fans chanted anti-government slogans and called for a recall referendum.

I want to finish what I started - McClaren

Steve McClaren returns to Derby

Some quotes from ex-England boss Steve McClaren, who has returned to take charge of Derby, the club who sacked him 17 months ago.

"I am excited to be back at Derby County as the club’s manager and I have a great affiliation with the club, having been here on three previous occasions," McClaren told Derby's official website.

"I'm really delighted at the prospect of finishing what we started back in September 2013. I regret how my time at Derby ended back in 2015 and am very motivated to put things right for the club and our supporters.

“My ultimate aspiration remains exactly what it was before, to take Derby County back to the Premier League."

Steve McClaren
As well as spells as the club's manager and assistant, Steve McClaren also played for Derby from 1985 to 1988.

England interim boss Gareth Southgate says he is satisfied with four World Cup qualification points from his opening two games in charge.

Nick will be disappointed - Murray


Nick Kyrgios

Andy Murray has had his say over Nick Kyrgios' behaviour after his match earlier where he lost 6-3 6-1 to Mischa Zverev. 

In case you missed it, the 21-year-old Australian patted the ball over the net several times when serving, argued with a fan and received a code violation for swearing.

Murray went one step from defending the hysterics by saying, "Nick will be disappointed he played badly. He has just had a great week winning in Japan and it isn't easy to back it up in a following city then you're feeling tired"

Murray did however go on to say, "You have to give our best effort, that's your job as a professional - accepting when you're not feeling good but you've just got to try and push through if you go out and don't give your best, it's tough to take".

'Anfield expansion not smart investment'


Anfield's Main Stand

The cost of redeveloping the Anfield Road end of Liverpool's stadium "is not a smart investment", says chief executive Ian Ayre.

Liverpool opened the redeveloped Main Stand last month, raising capacity to 54,074, and have planning permission to extend Anfield Road by a further 4,800.

But Ayre said: "A stand behind a goal doesn't have the benefit of hospitality that would go a long way to meet the redevelopment costs."

The upgrade would cost about £60-70m.

Fancy watching El Clasico in December?

Well you can't. 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. 

The first El Clasico of the 2016-17 season, aka Real Madrid v Barcelona, is being played at 15:15 GMT on Saturday, 3 December.

However, because of British TV's football embargo between certain hours on a Saturday, the match will not be shown anywhere on UK television - not even in the pub.

La Liga president Javier Tebas said "We had three windows we had considered, at 13:00, 16:15 and 18:30. We analysed those with our audiovisual team and to play at 18:00 is too late in Asia while to play at 13:00 is too early for the American market."

Spain's Jonathan Castroviejo was third.

It was Martin's second gold of the week in Doha, following victory in the men's team time trial in his last race for Etixx-Quick Step.

Murray and Johnson in the second set now...

Andy Murray

Both men easily take their first service games. 

Steve Johnson's next one however, is a little more eventful. The American receives a warning from the chair umpire for hitting a ball into the sky in frustration as he goes 40-0 down. 

It sort of helps him get out some of his anger though as he brings it back to 40-30. 

The third break point however is Murray's and he is 2-1 up. 

"Concentrate" he says to himself as he starts his second service game of the set.

Shanghai Masters: Johnson 2-5 Murray

Murray earned himself a break point in the fourth game but Johnson wasn't going to let the Wimbledon champion take an early advantage. 

At 2-2, Murray had to succumb to some unbelievable returning from the American but managed to hang on to take the game. 

A series of unforced errors from Johnson seemed to put Murray in the driving seat and with one more long ball, the score is 4-2 to the Scot. 

Within half an hour, Murray is cruising and quickly takes it to 5-2.
