TOP STORY

NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND - AUGUST 21: Jasprit Bumrah of India leads his team from the field at stumps on day four of the Specsavers 3rd Test match between England and India at Trent Bridge on August 21, 2018 in Nottingham, England. (Photo by Gareth Copley/Getty Images)

Pace ace Jasprit Bumrah leads India off the field in Nottingham.

England look bound for defeat against India but will leave Trent Bridge with the consolation of Jos Buttler’s maiden Test century.

Buttler’s 106 and a gritty 62 from Ben Stokes defied the tourists in a fifth-wicket stand of 169 which helped to take this match into a final day – albeit with England on 311 for nine and 210 runs shy of their target.

Barring a double-century last-wicket stand between Adil Rashid and James Anderson or relentless resilience, the hosts will head to Southampton for next week’s penultimate Test with only a 2-1 series lead.

TOP STORY

Liverpool made it two wins from two at the start of the Premier League season as a controversial penalty set them on their way to a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace.

James Milner beat Wayne Hennessey from the spot after Mohamed Salah went down late in the first half under minimal contact from Mamadou Sakho and the frustrated hosts’ hopes of a comeback were ended when Sadio Mane scored a second in stoppage time – if not earlier when Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off.

Jurgen Klopp’s second-placed teamed join title rivals Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea on maximum points.

FOOTBALL

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah make up the three-man shortlist for the UEFA Player of the Year award for the 2017/18 season.

Read our view as to why Modric’s exploits should make him a worthy winner for the award.

Elsewhere, Paul Pogba believes Manchester United must stay ‘mad’ to beat Tottenham and atone for Sunday’s Premier League loss at Brighton.

The Red Devils suffered a humiliating 3-2 defeat at Amex Stadium, where Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross struck for the Seagulls.

CRICKET

India captain Virat Kohli’s second century of the series strengthened his side’s iron grip on the third Test against England at Trent Bridge.

Kohli, who fell for 97 in India’s first innings, top-scored with 103 as the tourists, looking to bounce back from 2-0 down in a five-match contest piled up a total of 352 for seven declared.

Good morning!

Niall here with our key sports headlines on Monday.

As ever, get in touch with us via Twitter and Facebook throughout the day.

TOP STORY

Gareth Bale was on target as Real Madrid launched their La Liga campaign with a comfortable win over Getafe.

A Real side shorn of the services of the departed Cristiano Ronaldo and with summer signing Thibaut Courtois sitting on the bench alongside Luka Modric, Raphael Varane and Casemiro cruised to a 2-0 victory at the Bernabeu.

Dani Carvajal headed them into a 20th-minute lead with his first league goal since April 2014 and Bale, who had earlier hit the bar, doubled their advantage six minutes after the restart to hand new manager Julen Lopetegui a win in his first league game at the helm.

FOOTBALL

Jose Mourinho admits his Manchester United players could suffer a crisis of confidence following their humbling 3-2 defeat at Brighton.

United were architects of their own downfall, making mistakes in the build up to the first two goals scored by Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy.

Read our takeaways and manager in focus from the Amex Stadium.

Elsewhere, Sergio Aguero plundered his 13th Manchester City hat-trick as the reigning Premier League champions hit Huddersfield for six.

The Argentina international struck twice before the break and, after firing against a post and passing up a series of other opportunities, completed his ninth top-flight treble with a deft 75th-minute finish in a 6-1 rout.

Check out our takeaways from the Sky Blues win.

CRICKET

On a day that 16 wickets fell in total, with 10 of them falling in a single session, India took complete control of the third Test versus England.

After putting 329 on the board in their first innings, India bowled out the hosts for just 161 runs before adding 124-2 in their second innings. They lead by 292 runs.

Read our takeaways from the second day of play at Trent Bridge.
