Hello, footie fans.

0:00:240:00:32

The Premier League

is finally back after

0:00:320:00:33

the international break

and we have

0:00:330:00:35

got some fantastic fixtures to look

forward to, and I'm not just

0:00:350:00:38

talking about the north

London derby, I promise.

0:00:380:00:39

There's plenty of action coming up

on today's show, too.

0:00:390:00:42

Courtesy of this lot.

0:00:420:00:49

John Farnworth talks tricks

and skills with West Ham winger

0:00:490:00:51

Michail Antonio as kickabout bags

an exclusive chat with him.

0:00:510:00:55

Find out who came out

on top between Delle Alli

0:00:550:00:59

and Alexis Sanchez in this

week's top tekkers.

0:00:590:01:01

And we meet some future

stars of the women's game

0:01:010:01:04

at Newcastle United.

0:01:040:01:05

There's plenty more girl power

coming up later in the show, too,

0:01:050:01:07

so keep watching for that.

0:01:070:01:11

And sticking with the women's game,

there's some cracking goal to catch

0:01:110:01:15

up on for the first of this

week's headline hitters.

0:01:150:01:20

Manchester City moved to the top

of the women's super league

0:01:200:01:22

with a 4-0 win over Bristol City

as Chelsea dropped their first

0:01:220:01:27

points of the season

with a draw at Reading.

0:01:270:01:29

Elsewhere, this fantastic lob

from Niamh Charles gave Liverpool

0:01:290:01:33

a win over Birmingham,

and a quality free kick

0:01:330:01:35

from Jordan Knobbs rounded off

a 3-0 win for Arsenal.

0:01:350:01:43

Another top strike now.

0:01:430:01:49

We have not even reached the second

round but it has to be a contender

0:01:490:01:53

for goal of the season already

in the FA Cup from

0:01:530:01:55

Scunthorpe's Hakeeb Adelakun.

0:01:550:01:57

What a stunner to win the game

for his side against Northampton.

0:01:570:02:06

World Cup qualifying has ended

and we now know all 32 teams

0:02:060:02:11

who will compete at next

summer's finals in Russia.

0:02:110:02:13

In the European qualifiers,

four-time champions Italy failed

0:02:130:02:16

to make it for the first time

since 1958 after defeat

0:02:160:02:19

against Sweden.

0:02:190:02:20

Croatia saw off Greece.

0:02:200:02:25

Christian Eriksen's hat-trick gave

an emphatic victory to Denmark over

0:02:250:02:27

the Republic of Ireland,

and it was heartbreak

0:02:270:02:31

for Northern Ireland

as a controversial penalty

0:02:310:02:35

in the first leg proved decisive

as they lost out to Switzerland.

0:02:350:02:38

Huge commiserations

to Northern Ireland.

0:02:380:02:39

What a way to lose out.

0:02:390:02:41

Congrats, though, to all the teams

that made it through to next

0:02:410:02:44

summer's tournament in Russia

and I'm looking

0:02:440:02:45

forward to it already.

0:02:450:02:46

Now, where would you expect to see

a cracking free kick,

0:02:460:02:49

bicycle kick and amazing skills?

0:02:490:02:50

That's all part of

the World Cup, right?

0:02:500:02:52

Wrong.

0:02:520:02:54

All this is from you lot at home.

0:02:540:02:59

Oliver scored a stunning free

kick for Wigan Junior

0:02:590:03:01

Latics under ten Whites.

0:03:010:03:08

So good we have to see that again.

0:03:080:03:15

The keeper stood no chance.

0:03:150:03:16

What a goal.

0:03:160:03:18

Check out Chelsea fan Harry

practising his top bin free kicks.

0:03:180:03:21

Oh!

0:03:210:03:23

John Terry would be proud of that.

0:03:230:03:28

And here's Birmingham fan Barney

scoring a quality bicycle kick.

0:03:280:03:30

Check out that celebration.

0:03:300:03:32

We love that.

0:03:320:03:38

And finally, here's Thomas showing

how to nail a bin shot.

0:03:380:03:40

Top stuff.

0:03:400:03:45

Brilliant.

0:03:450:03:46

Thanks, guys.

0:03:460:03:49

Let's hope we see plenty of skills

like that this weekend

0:03:490:03:52

in the Premier League.

0:03:520:03:53

There's a full round of fixtures

to look forward to, including

0:03:530:03:55

the big North London derby

between Arsenal and Tottenham.

0:03:550:03:58

The Gunners haven't won any

of their last six Premier League

0:03:580:04:01

meetings against Spurs,

so they'll be hoping

0:04:010:04:02

their winless run ends today.

0:04:020:04:03

You can expect goals, too, as this

is one of the highest scoring

0:04:030:04:07

fixtures in the Premier League

with 141 goals being scored so far.

0:04:070:04:10

And could we see one of these

two on the scoresheet?

0:04:100:04:14

They were of course

the focus of this week's top

0:04:140:04:17

tekkers vote as we asked

you to choose your favourite.

0:04:170:04:19

Let's find out who came out on top.

0:04:190:04:25

Dele Alli!

0:04:250:04:29

Dele Alli sweeps the ball home.

0:04:290:04:31

Dele Alli.

0:04:310:04:37

Brilliant from him.

0:04:370:04:44

Dele Alli can wrap it

here, he's through.

0:04:440:04:49

Past Shay Given.

0:04:490:04:51

It's Dele Alli.

0:04:510:04:52

Eriksen, gives him the ball.

0:04:520:04:54

Headed by Dele Alli.

0:04:540:04:55

Over to Dele Alli.

0:04:550:04:56

Dele Alli, what a goal.

0:04:560:04:57

Sensational control by Dele Alli.

0:04:570:04:58

Chance for Spurs.

0:04:580:04:59

Dele Alli's onto it.

0:04:590:05:00

Goal for Spurs.

0:05:000:05:06

Spurs 2-0 Manchester City.

0:05:060:05:07

There's nothing he

can't do, this lad.

0:05:070:05:08

He's athletic, he scores goals.

0:05:080:05:10

To Dele Alli.

0:05:100:05:11

He's confident.

0:05:110:05:12

He just playing with a freedom.

0:05:120:05:13

Over to Dele Alli, what a finish.

0:05:130:05:15

Back to Dele Alli.

0:05:150:05:16

What a shot.

0:05:160:05:17

That's a delightful ball,

what a great goal,

0:05:170:05:19

Dele Alli scores it.

0:05:190:05:20

Now it's for Dele Alli.

0:05:200:05:22

Oh, what a goal.

0:05:220:05:24

What a player.

0:05:240:05:25

Yes, it was super close

this week, but Dele Alli

0:05:250:05:27

just took it in the end.

0:05:270:05:31

Although I'm gunning for Arsenal,

I'm sure all you Spurs fans will be

0:05:310:05:35

hoping to see more quality goals

like that from him tomorrow.

0:05:350:05:42

If you head online to the Kickabout

website, there's a quiz

0:05:420:05:45

to test your knowledge

on the North London derby.

0:05:450:05:48

And a new top tekkers vote, too,

for next week's show.

0:05:480:05:54

With the big game between Liverpool

and Chelsea at Anfield next

0:05:540:05:57

Saturday, we are asking

you to choose between these two

0:05:570:06:00

midfield maestros, the Reds' growing

Brazilian Phillipe Coutinho...

0:06:000:06:02

Oh, what a magnificent

strike from the Brazilian.

0:06:020:06:04

Or Chelsea trickster Eden Hazard.

0:06:040:06:08

It is a glorious goal

from Eden Hazard.

0:06:080:06:10

So, who's your favourite?

0:06:100:06:11

There can only be one winner.

0:06:110:06:12

Go to the kickabout

website to cast your vote.

0:06:120:06:14

You've got until 9am on Wednesday

the 22nd of November

0:06:140:06:17

and we will reveal the winner

as usual on next week's show.

0:06:170:06:25

Right, back to this weekend's

fixtures now and the other big game

0:06:250:06:29

we've got a mention in the time

between West Ham and Watford.

0:06:290:06:33

It's David Moyes' first game

in charge of the Hammers

0:06:330:06:36

and the new manager is already

having a positive impact

0:06:360:06:39

on the squad, according to winger

Michail Antonio.

0:06:390:06:49

John Farnworth recently had

an exclusive chat with him ahead

0:06:500:06:54

of the PlayStation Schools Cup.

0:06:540:06:56

I'm going to show you quite a few

skills just to show you what I do

0:06:560:07:00

and then we can have a little chat,

is that all right?

0:07:000:07:03

Have you got any freestyle moves?

0:07:030:07:04

I can roll it on my chest and I can

do around the world.

0:07:040:07:08

Yeah.

0:07:080:07:09

Just one.

0:07:090:07:10

Not as many as you're doing.

0:07:100:07:11

That is tasty.

0:07:110:07:12

Thank you much.

0:07:120:07:15

What's the best trick

you've done in the Prem?

0:07:150:07:17

The best trick I've

done in the Prem?

0:07:170:07:19

I've megged people what I've got

a go to trick where I drag

0:07:190:07:22

the ball over and stop it,

and go the other way.

0:07:220:07:25

I do all the time.

0:07:250:07:26

Antonio.

0:07:260:07:27

That's a nice bit of skill.

0:07:270:07:28

My best trick I've done in a game

was in an under 23 game

0:07:280:07:36

where I flicked a backheel

over someone's head.

0:07:360:07:38

I've always watched Payet.

0:07:380:07:40

He's pretty skilful.

0:07:400:07:41

You played with him.

0:07:410:07:43

What was he like?

0:07:430:07:44

He was quality.

0:07:440:07:45

He wasn't quick but he was agile.

0:07:450:07:46

He knew how to beat a man.

0:07:460:07:48

He was technically unbelievable.

0:07:480:07:49

He was quality.

0:07:490:07:50

It's being able to do it

on the training ground but it's

0:07:500:07:53

another thing doing it in games.

0:07:530:07:55

Actually bringing into

the Premier League.

0:07:550:07:56

You've played a lot of top players

but is there one that has really

0:07:560:07:59

inspired you or you thought,

wow, I can learn from him?

0:07:590:08:02

One player I've always

liked was Adam Lallana.

0:08:020:08:04

I've played with Southampton

and still to this day, I couldn't

0:08:040:08:07

tell you what foot he uses.

0:08:070:08:08

I would ask.

0:08:080:08:09

He would say both.

0:08:090:08:10

He literally would not tell you.

0:08:100:08:12

It's one of things where I always

wanted to be both footed

0:08:120:08:14

and that's what I practised.

0:08:140:08:16

What a goal, Michail Antonio.

0:08:160:08:17

This weekend, Watford away,

how important is it?

0:08:170:08:19

Very, very important.

0:08:190:08:20

The last couple of weeks,

we've got the few points so Watford

0:08:200:08:28

-- The last couple of weeks, we've

dropped a few points so Watford

0:08:280:08:31

are doing well but I believe every

team can go to, we can

0:08:310:08:34

get three points.

0:08:340:08:35

It is belief, isn't it?

0:08:350:08:37

It is belief.

0:08:370:08:38

Valencia rippling through.

0:08:380:08:39

It's in from Antonio.

0:08:390:08:40

Brilliantly finished.

0:08:400:08:41

You won Player of

the Year last season.

0:08:410:08:43

Tell me about that.

0:08:430:08:44

That must be amazing.

0:08:440:08:45

It's unbelievable.

0:08:450:08:46

The names that are out there.

0:08:460:08:47

The history of West Ham,

I'm now in the history of it.

0:08:470:08:50

It's amazing.

0:08:500:08:51

I'm hoping I can pick up my season.

0:08:510:08:53

Hopefully be in contention

again this year.

0:08:530:08:55

Talking about history,

you were first to discover West Ham

0:08:550:08:57

at the Olympic Stadium.

0:08:570:08:58

That's right, isn't it?

0:08:580:08:59

That's right, yeah.

0:08:590:09:00

That must rank in

the top of your goals.

0:09:000:09:02

It was my mission, I'm not

going to lie to you.

0:09:020:09:05

I scored in our last game

of the season and all the boys

0:09:050:09:08

were like, new stadium,

someone will have to score first.

0:09:080:09:11

Cheikhou scored in

Europe Europa League.

0:09:110:09:12

I was like, I've got

to get the Prem.

0:09:120:09:14

Got to get the Prem.

0:09:140:09:15

That was my goal.

0:09:150:09:17

I put my name in history,

a nice tick there.

0:09:170:09:19

Yeah.

0:09:190:09:20

Sweeping in a dangerous cross.

0:09:200:09:21

Put away by Antonio.

0:09:210:09:22

West Ham's first Premier League

goal in their new home.

0:09:220:09:25

You are playing in,

I feel the best league

0:09:250:09:30

in the world in the Premier League,

but it's not straightforward,

0:09:300:09:33

has it, getting there?

0:09:330:09:34

Has it been quite tough?

0:09:340:09:35

Yeah, it has been quite tough.

0:09:350:09:36

Getting from non league

to the Premier League is a milestone

0:09:360:09:39

for people in League 2,

League 1.

0:09:390:09:41

Getting the move from the

Championship to the Premier League

0:09:410:09:43

is probably one of the hardest

things, though, because most clubs

0:09:430:09:46

would rather buy abroad.

0:09:460:09:47

Lately, you are starting

to see it more people

0:09:470:09:52

progress and move on like me,

Aaron Cresswell, Andre Gray,

0:09:520:09:55

Chris Woods is now at Burnley.

0:09:550:09:56

People are progressing as well.

0:09:560:09:57

You're here, playing for West Ham.

0:09:570:09:59

What's the best bit

about being a footballer?

0:09:590:10:01

The best bit about being

a footballer is literally

0:10:010:10:03

getting up every morning,

going to training and playing

0:10:030:10:05

football for my job.

0:10:050:10:06

I get paid to play football.

0:10:060:10:08

There are times

I still pinch myself.

0:10:080:10:09

My boyhood dream.

0:10:090:10:10

I'm living.

0:10:100:10:11

Michail Antonio scores.

0:10:110:10:12

West Ham are in front.

0:10:120:10:21

Living the boyhood

dream indeed, Antonio.

0:10:210:10:23

Thanks, guys, top stuff.

0:10:230:10:30

This next lot of players have

certainly been dreaming big as

0:10:300:10:33

well as comes the achievements

on the greedy pitch.

0:10:330:10:42

Maxim won man of the match on Sunday

0:10:420:10:49

after scoring a hat-trick.

0:10:490:10:50

No wonder his brother George looks

so proud next to him.

0:10:500:11:00

Here's Adam in the Wessex warriors

with former star Tyrone Mings.

0:11:000:11:05

Adam suffers from Duchenne

muscular dystrophy but loves

0:11:050:11:06

playing first team in

the PowerEdge football league.

0:11:060:11:13

James, Lester, Chai,

Lucas, Rocco and Jamie

0:11:130:11:18

are the under sevens

0:11:180:11:19

and they won their first seven

0:11:190:11:21

league games in a row,

scoring over 100 goals

0:11:210:11:23

along the way.

0:11:230:11:27

This is match trophy

that he won playing

0:11:270:11:29

for his local in Woodley.

0:11:290:11:30

Finn recently lent to watch Everton

take on Watford at Goodison Park.

0:11:300:11:33

He is a huge pity than

and was getting to as many

0:11:330:11:36

live games as possible.

0:11:360:11:37

Finally, Chloe was awarded Player

of the Year after scoring 16 goals

0:11:370:11:40

last season for the Westbridge that

Colts and she now plays

0:11:400:11:43

for Nottingham Forest ladies.

0:11:430:11:44

Wow, Chloe, a future star

of the women's game there I'm sure.

0:11:440:11:47

You heard it here first.

0:11:470:11:48

I love how many girls are getting

involved with football up and down

0:11:480:11:51

the UK and Lauren saw that first

and recently when she

0:11:510:11:54

visited Newcastle United.

0:11:540:11:55

I'm the training ground

for Premier League

0:11:550:11:56

club Newcastle United.

0:11:560:11:57

Here, the Newcastle United

foundation are running training

0:11:570:11:59

sessions of female footballers

of various ages and they're hoping

0:11:590:12:02

to lead the way in women's football

through their women and girls play.

0:12:020:12:05

Who is Newcastle United's

all-time record goal-scorer?

0:12:050:12:06

Alan Shearer.

0:12:060:12:08

Yeah, OK, Alan Shearer,

you got it right.

0:12:080:12:09

I'm on the side.

0:12:090:12:19

There's actually some really,

really talented young players here,

0:12:200:12:22

which I came in thinking,

wow, some of them are very,

0:12:220:12:24

very good, so it's important

for young people to enjoy sport

0:12:240:12:27

and to have ambitions.

0:12:270:12:29

Obviously if some of them

want to play football when they're

0:12:290:12:31

older, that's fantastic.

0:12:310:12:34

The more people we can get involved

in football, whether it's girls

0:12:340:12:37

or boys, it's important.

0:12:370:12:43

What's it like meeting Isaac Hayden?

0:12:430:12:44

Good.

0:12:440:12:49

Good?

0:12:490:12:50

Yeah.

0:12:500:12:53

What do you think of him?

0:12:530:12:56

He's tall.

0:12:560:12:57

Great ball.

0:12:570:13:00

Unlucky.

0:13:000:13:04

I think it will be brilliant.

0:13:040:13:11

You have a female only thing

and girls only courses

0:13:110:13:15

and it'll be a home

for Newcastle United women as well.

0:13:150:13:18

How important is it that these

things exist the girls in this area?

0:13:180:13:21

Absolutely massive.

0:13:210:13:24

It brings out of their shells and

you've got some children probably

0:13:240:13:27

don't excel well within core

subjects in school but put them

0:13:270:13:30

on a football pitch and they're

probably your loudest,

0:13:300:13:32

biggest, best players ever seen.

0:13:320:13:33

I think it's going for them.

0:13:330:13:34

Newcastle is a hotbed for football

as most people know.

0:13:340:13:37

The fact that they got so many

girls engaged now, female

0:13:370:13:42

only programmes, it's fantastic.

0:13:420:13:43

What advice would you give any young

people watching that might

0:13:430:13:46

want to get into football?

0:13:460:13:48

Just enjoy it.

0:13:480:13:50

Play with a smile on your face.

0:13:500:13:53

If you make mistakes,

they make mistakes and I keep

0:13:530:13:55

going and get on with it.

0:13:550:13:56

Enjoy yourself while you're playing.

0:13:560:13:58

It is exciting to know that women

and girls of all ages

0:13:580:14:00

are being cursed to play football

and it's clear to see that the work

0:14:000:14:04

of the Newcastle United foundation

in providing opportunities

0:14:040:14:06

and a clear pathway to the top

is a ground-breaking step

0:14:060:14:08

in the future of the sport.

0:14:080:14:10

0:14:100:14:11
