They had come close to a second before substitute Johann Berg Gudmundsson set up Ashley Barnes for an 83rd-minute winner. They showed that from the start, with Barnes and Wood - who had scored six goals between them in the previous three games - proving a handful for the Spurs defence. His pass set Charlie Taylor away down the left and the full-back's cross was eventually scrambled behind for a corner.

Three cabinet ministers who signalled they could vote to delay Britain’s withdrawal from the EU should resign, a Tory Brexiter MP has said. Amber Rudd, Greg Clark and David Gauke should step down, said Andrew Bridgen, a member of the hard-Brexit European Research Group (ERG). But the Conservative former minister Nick Boles, who is backing moves to delay Brexit if there is no deal, welcomed the intervention of the three cabinet ministers.

Downing Street said the prime minister had spoken to 26 of the EU’s 27 leaders in the past fortnight, as she tries to convince them to make changes she can sell to MPs.

For these women, the consequences of living in a world built around male data can be deadly. The reason this has been allowed to happen is very simple: cars have been designed using car crash-test dummies based on the “average” male. The seatbelt test, one of the frontal-collision tests, and both lateral-collision tests all specify that a 50th-percentile male dummy should be used. There is one EU regulatory test that requires what is called a 5th-percentile female dummy, which is meant to represent the female population. And secondly, this female dummy is not really female.

It often seems, in the heat of Brexit rage, that ardent leavers and remainers have forgotten how normal it is for nations to be divided. We need to raise our eyes from Brexit and consider not just the Britain, not just the Europe, but the kind of world we are aiming for. In the wake of the Brexit vote a number of EU citizens living in Britain have had horrible experiences with the immigration authorities. Facebook Twitter Pinterest Applications for Irish passports jumped by 50% after the Brexit vote.

Liverpool sold Coutinho for £142million to Barcelona and used the cash to invest in midfield duo Naby Keita and Fabinho as well as goalkeeper Alisson. Keita made the move for £48million after starring in the Bundesliga for RB Leipzig but he has failed to impress at Anfield. And while Fabinho has been a handy addition - has filled in admirably at the back in Liverpool's defensive injury crisis - he is hardly the man to unpick a defence. Ahead of the meeting between Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, Merson said: "United's midfield has more guile and goals in it than Liverpool's. They miss Philippe Coutinho, someone who has that X factor and can produce something out of nothing."

But if the UK leaves without a deal, all changes and drivers will be expected to carry a green card when in mainland Europe and Ireland.

The government is expected next week to spell out its plan to mitigate a potential £9bn food-price shock from a no-deal Brexit, as analysts predict the cost of staples such as beef, cheddar cheese and tomatoes could soar. The relationship with the EU is key to the price of food because nearly one third of the food eaten in the UK comes from the bloc. On that basis the UK’s 2017 EU food imports would come with a hefty £9.3bn tariff bill on top, according to Retail Economics’s analysis. A country can set a quota, enabling a certain volume of a product to flow in before a higher tariff rate kicks in. But the direction of travel for prices looks clear, as demonstrated by Britain’s favourite cheese: cheddar.
