Phil Foden misses as West Ham end Manchester City’s Carabao Cup reign
After five years of utter dominance, Manchester City’s hold on the Carabao Cup is over. Their reign ended after a night of absorbing entertainment at the London Stadium and Pep Guardiola’s side could have no complaints after being ground down by West Ham, who defended with astonishing organisation before holding their nerve in a tense penalty shootout.West Ham were genuinely outstanding as they reached the last-eight. David Moyes’s side battled to contain the holders, who were in trouble when Phil Foden screwed his penalty wide, and they would not be denied. Mark Noble, Jarrod Bowen, Craig Dawson and Aaron Cresswell scored confidently from 12 yards and the roar was deafening when Saïd Benrahma coolly sealed a 5-3 win. Continue reading...

Universe review – Brian Cox’s trip to the stars is sheer cosmic cowardice
As the professor guides us through the solar system via excessive CGI and poetic chat, you can’t help but think his latest quest would be more effective if it wasn’t so dumbed downI don’t know how you make an hour-long programme that takes you slowly through 14bn years of history, but the BBC and Prof Brian Cox have done it with the first episode of Universe. Possibly it is a space-time paradox that only the good professor himself could solve. (Please do not write in if I deployed the phrase “space-time paradox” incorrectly. I am an arts graduate who begins this series not entirely sure whether solar systems are bigger than galaxies, and needs this programme very much, even if I cannot honestly say I enjoy it.)The four-part BBC Two series, as you have probably guessed from the title, will eventually deal with just about everything astrophysical. But the opener is all about stars – especially our big yin, the sun. It is pegged to Nasa’s Parker solar probe’s mission, though mentions of this are brief bookends. In between, Cox does his thing.
