But despite Spurs struggling for creativity in Christian Eriksen's absence during Sunday's 1-1 draw at Southampton , Pochettino denied a move for the Brazilian is ...

    Sonnen used his wrestling to secure a unanimous decision victory over Jackson in a battle of former UFC stars. Yamauchi was paid $23,000 to show, and would have earned another $23,000 if he'd won. MacDonald brought the fight to the ground quickly in the final frame and worked over Lima with ground and pound.

Moeen had been dropped in a strikingly similar fashion by Hazlewood at the SCG during the fifth Ashes Test but, as in that match and throughout a disappointing tour, he was unable to capitalise and was out dragging a Marsh delivery on to his stumps soon after.
