Manchester City take the plaudits after emphatic win.

Chelsea scratch their heads after draw against West Ham.

Transfer window ticks towards conclusion.

Durant beats James in NBA MVP battle.

We start with Manchester City, and their emphatic 5-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

Whilst the Citizens were in scintillating form, a controversial red card to Danny Rose with the score at 1-0 proved to be a pivotal moment, and manager Manuel Pellegrini was in no doubt that the referee made the right decision.

Chelsea could have used one of their title rivals’ goals last night, as Jose Mourinho’s side failed to break down the West Ham door at Stamford Bridge.

‘The Special One’ was hugely critical of the defensive Hammers post-match, comparing Sam Allardyce’s side to a team from the 19th century.

With the final hours starting to tick down in the January transfer window, a couple of names continue to be linked with a move to the Premier League.

Arsenal face a race against time to sign Julian Draxler from Schalke, whilst Ukrainian winger Yevhen Konoplyanka has been linked with both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in recent days.

And finally, a trip across to the pond and a look at the world of NBA, as superstars Kevin Durant and LeBron James went head-to-head last night in Florida.

The pair are battling it out for basketball’s MVP Award this season, and it was Durant’s Oklahoma City Thunder who got the better of James’ Miami Heat in a 112-95 win at the American Airlines Arena.
