i'm tolsen tollet, and this is sport today, live from the bbc sport centre. coming up on this programme: manchester city stage a fight—back to beat arsenal at the etihad. a blaster from costa sends bayern back to the top of the bundesliga. and parrott has all the moves, as he wins the big air on copper mountain. i wish i had moves like that. hello, and welcome to the programme, where we start with the english premier league, where manchester city came from behind to beat arsenal 2—1 on sunday. that win means they leapfrog their opponents and liverpool to go second, seven points behind leaders chelsea. but there was some controversy surrounding their winner which was scored by raheem sterling. earlier, theo walcott opened the scoring for the visitors five minutes into a first half they dominated. leroy sane equalised for city just after the break. arsenal stay third but have lost their last two league games, 2—1, despite taking the lead in both matches. they were lucky in the first half.
it was a premier league game. it was a good game for everybody. of course, it was quite similar to chelsea. with chelsea, we didn't win, and today we did. we dominated. we created chances. we have players that are not there for long time. so, soi that are not there for long time. so, so i am happy. we conceded two offside goals. that is very difficult to accept in a game like that. i believe there is a lot going on the moment that is not serious at the pgmo. it is unbelievable, but every time the decisions go against you, and only unilaterally. danny rose scored the winner as tottenham hotspur also came from behind to beat burnley 2—1. spurs stay in fifth, one point behind arsenal and liverpool but had to dig deep, with dele alli, equalising after ashley barnes had given the visitors a surprise early lead. mauricio pochettino's side have
won their last four games at white hart lane. in the early kick—off, jay rodriguez scored twice as southampton came from behind to beat bournemouth 3—1. ryan bertrand scored the visitors other goal as claude puel‘s side registered their first win away from home in the premier league since the 25th of september. the victory takes them up to seventh, while bournemouth, who had taken an early lead through nathan ake, stay in 11th. the second half, i think when we started the second half, there was a good spirit and a good attitude. we dominated this team. and i think this is quite a good thing for us just before three days off. i will repeat that to the players because i think they can take a good time and
momentum with the family. in italy's serie a, napoli have moved to within a point of second placed roma after an action packed 5—3 win over torino. dries mertens scored four goals including a first half hat—trick. inter picked up maximum points at sassuolo, while in the late kick—offs, lazio moved fourth after victory at home over fiorentina, while there were also wins for inter and palermo who came from 3—1 down to win 4—3 at genoa move off the bottom of the table. in spain, barcelona have moved within three points of primera division leaders real madrid beating local rivals espanyol 4—1 in the catalan derby at camp nou. luis suarez and lionel messie both scored twice for luis enrique‘s side. in germany, douglas costa's long—range shot helped bayern munich to a 1—0 victory over bottom side darmstadt. that win takes them back to the top of the league, although the champions are ahead of leipzig on goal difference only. the two sides meet at the allianz arena on wednesday before the bundesliga winter break. in the dutch eredivisie,
a goal—less first half between ajax and champions. psv eindhoven. exploded into life shortly after the interval. ajax captain, davy klaassen, unleashed a thunderous strike that flew into the top corner for his ninth goal in 16 league matches. well worth having another look at for its sheer brilliance on the big stage. but that was before the man who used to captain ajax, siem dejong, now on loan at psv from newcastle united, levelled the scores, meaning ajax are now five points behind leaders feyenoord, with third—placed eindhoven three points further back. atletico de kolkata were crowned indian super league champions for the second time in three years beating kerala blasters on penalties. both sides scored one goal each. mohammed rafi getting the opener. henriqee sereno scoring the equaliser for kolkata, and they were still level after extra time. jewel raja slotted home the winning penalty for kolkata. for the second time in three
seasons, real madrid have won the club world cup after a 4—2 extra time victory overjapan's kashima antlers. cristiano ronaldo with a hat—trick for the european champions who had a real scare and were briefly on the verge of what would have been the biggest shock in the tournament's history. adam wild has more. the idea that real madrid's bridge to a fifth world cup was a procession gained a pace when this shot was too much for the keeper to deal with. karim benzema literally just had to get a boot on the rebound. but the barrage of goals never came. by the end of the half, they were back with an equaliser. within seven minutes of a restart, the unthinkable. they had the leader of the world's most hated for ball side. again it was that man. ——
fated. he knows how long that lead would have started if the ball not the man was caught. then came the cristiano ronaldo show. the ground footballer of the year slotted home a penalty. once it went to extra time, he was as good as his title. he finished the year with his fourth and fifth hat—trick for club and country. it was no surprise to see this at the end of the day. adam wild, bbc news. translation: the truth is that this was an unforgettable year, both on a tea m was an unforgettable year, both on a team and individual level. we won the champions league, we won the super cup. and now the club world cup. and sundays ago i got the ballon d'or. a perfect way to and the year. —— and some days ago.
now to cricket. and kl rahul fell one short of a double 100 for india on day three of the fifth and final test against england in chennai. the opener was caught on 199 as he tried to reach the landmark. his score helped the hosts to 391 for four which leaves them 86 runs behind england's first innings score with two days remaining. karun nair will resume on 71 alongside murali vijay and henry moran sent this report. they had to work pretty hard to make any breakthroughs today on the third day that once again followed the pattern we have seen over the course of the test match. run—scoring, pretty straightforward. opportunity scarce for the bowling side. and rahul fell one scarce for the bowling side. and rahulfell one short scarce for the bowling side. and rahul fell one short of the double 100. he took his time and calculated his runs very well and took the risks when he needed to. it was pretty good bowling. a slow and white wine. i think no one would
leave that one alone. —— wide one. credit to him for thinking of that and that was a great catch from the field is. what can we expect for the final two days of this test match? india will want to eclipse the first innings of england. they can put some pressure and open up some mental scars through the top order of england and may be set up a victory for them, maybe a 4—0 win in the series. england wants to remove the series. england wants to remove the wickets of india quickly and give themselves a first—innings lead. so far that has been no deterioration, but england hope they can make some breakthroughs early on the fourth day. and staying with cricket news. pakistan are still in with a chance of an unlikely win in their opening test against australia. they need another 108 runs but have just two wickets left going into the final day in brisbane. chasing a world record 490 to win, they are 382 for eight. asad shafiq will resume 100 not out alongside yasir shah. the first—ever us grand prix snowboard big air at copper mountain in colorado was held on the weekend
with temperatures as low as —25 degrees celsius. this was the first time in more than eight years that a slope rather than scaffolding was used. and in the men's event, it was a canadian 1—2 with max parrot taking his first gold medal of the season with 188.75 points edging out compatriot, sebastien toutant. while in the women's olympic gold—medallist, jamie anderson took the win, her seventh world cup victory with the next event taking place in moscow next month. in the nfl, jacksonville jaguars have sacked head coach gus bradley. it follows a 21—20 loss at houston on sunday, a game in which the jaguars let slip a nine—point lead in the fourth quarter. it was also the teams ninth defeat in a row this season with bradley finishing with 8111 and 48 record over his four seasons in florida. sadly that is all we have time for.

some fog and we will see some fog in the higher ground of northern england. the fog not as much of an issue in scotland and northern ireland. maybe even north—east england. but here the sunshine will start the way and western scotland cloud. patch and drizzle affecting northern ireland. not a huge amount of wet weather. we will finish the day with some brightness. elsewhere, though, remains cloudy and misty in some western areas and later on in eastern england, patches of light rain or drizzle. temperatures to finish monday where they should be for the time of the year but feeling cool where the mist lingers. heavy rain developing in the south in monday night. patchy rain in england and wales. misty over the hills. but clear england and wales skies. scotland and northern ireland, and here, coldest night of the week, with frost in places, and for northern ireland, could be a foggy start to tuesday morning. still fog an issue for one or two of you for tuesday. probably worse in northern ireland and in the hills andier bursts in the south.
through central and eastern england, brighter afternoons in store than we've been used to for a while. but, at last, the arrival of some sunshine. some sunshine for eastern parts of scotland, but in the west, we start to see some rain. a cooler day by and large, but let's focus on that rain. western scotland and northern ireland, not just rain but strong winds. the strong winds are back. gale force across many areas into tuesday evenings rush hour. severe gales, if not storm force, across the north, thanks to this weather front bringing rain across the country and increasing winds as we go through the night and into wednesday. and that links into weather systems waiting in the wings being fired up by the jet stream i mentioned. so it is that big challenge to start the week. fog could be an issue. strong winds and heavy rain later on. we'll of course keep you updated and take you through it each day step—by—step. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. i'm lebo diseko. our top stories: the evacuation of eastern aleppo resumes — but conditions for people trapped in the syrian city are getting worse by the hour. translation: i've been coming
