Southampton v Manchester City: Premier League – live!
Premier League updates from the 5.30pm GMT kick-offLive scores: follow all of Saturday’s goals as they go inAnd feel free to email scott.murray@theguardian.comOf course, Pep Guardiola will have made one or two demands of his team, too. “We know we are going to drop points, to lose games. It is how you are going to react in that moment. When you make 12 victories in a row, people start to think ‘they are invincible’, but this is not true. We are going to drop points. Hopefully not today, but it is going to happen. We are in the middle of January, and nobody will be champions. From our experience it is always tough against Southampton and it will be no different today.”Ralph Hasenhuttl, who has set his team a minimum target of 35 percent possession, explains this to Sky. “City are very used to playing against deep defending teams. They always find solutions. So we do not hide, we try to play brave, this is what we are known for and what we will try to do.” Continue reading...

Darling buds: how best friends keep us healthy and happy
Strong social networks have been shown to improve wellbeing, but what are the extra perks of having a really close friend? And why are women more likely to have one?“We met when we were five. I don’t know how I would have managed without her.” As children, Barbara Kastelein, from Ashford in Kent, and her best friend, nicknamed “Tulip”, both had alcoholic fathers. Their friendship was an escape from unhappy homes.The best friends are now both 55 and their relationship is as solid as ever. Barbara says they are more like sisters – and still there for each other during tough times. When Barbara’s father died, Tulip drove for hours to be at the funeral and to help Barbara empty her father’s flat. “I can’t imagine life without her,” says Barbara. “She is my guardian angel.” Continue reading...

A courageous reissue in the not-so-brave new world of publishing | Rachel Cooke
Kay Dick’s They is a forgotten dystopian novel from 45 years ago, but still contentious in an age of social media bullyingA parcel arrives, inside which is a copy of Kay Dick’s dystopian novel of 1977, They: A Sequence of Unease, and a letter informing me that Faber is to reissue it next month. Crikey, but isn’t this amazing? Dick, who died in 2001, is something of a minority interest at this point. She didn’t write much and what she did is either quite peculiar or quite bad, though I’ll always be fond of Ivy and Stevie, a collection of interviews with Ivy Compton-Burnett and Stevie Smith that wears its eccentricity like some crazy hat (“I realised that she had lovely legs because, quite often, she would delve under her skirt for her handkerchief, which she tucked into her knickers,” Dick writes of the former, on whom she first “called” in 1950.)But if this book’s reappearance is surprising, it’s also ironic. In They, Britain is in the grip of a mercilessly cruel group of philistines: a mob that burns books and paintings, punishing all those who resist. Faber hopes, very laudably, to bring it to a “new generation” of readers and to help it do so, its edition comes with praise from Margaret Atwood and an introduction by Carmen Maria Machado.

The illustrator who takes you places – in pictures
Illustrator and pattern designer Angela Mckay loves to travel, and sketching is her way to encapsulate the new places she visits. “I try to work in situ, because painting outside forces me to be quicker than normal, to capture everything without focusing on small details ” she says. She finds that unusual greenery and architecture are the things that most draw her eye. Mckay is a Thai Australian now based in Brooklyn, New York, but her sketches take you to Portugal, Italy or Morocco. “I would like people who see my work to feel like they are being transported to that place for a moment, like a little mini-holiday for your brain,” she says.See more at ohkiistudio.com Continue reading...

We’re pricing the poor out of food in the UK – that’s why I’m launching my own price index | Jack Monroe
A whole section of society is being cut adrift by the rising cost of supermarket shopping Our ruling class may have been brazenly wheeling suitcases of cheap plonk past the averted gaze of Metropolitan police officers during the last year of lockdowns, but their voters are increasingly finding themselves destitute, hungry, demoralised and priced out of the cheapest bag of apples at the supermarket.It was reported last week that the consumer price index (CPI) measure for inflation rose to 5.4% in December, the highest level for nearly 30 years. The CPI and the retail price index (RPI) are used interchangeably to document the rising price levels of groceries and household goods across the UK. Yet they only tell a fragment of the story of inflation, and grossly underestimate the true cost-of-living crisis. Continue reading...
