Everton put their unbeaten start to the new Premier League season on the line when they travel to Aston Villa tonight.

Kick-off at Villa Park is at 8.

GOLF

Rory McIlroy's just one-shot off the lead heading into the second round of the Tour Championship.

He starts the day on 9-under par, and believes he needs three-more rounds in the 60s if he's to win the 15-million dollar top prize on Sunday.

The American trio of Xander Schauffele, Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas head the field in Atlanta on 10-under par.

HOCKEY

A late goal from Anna O'Flanagan saw Ireland beat Belgium 2-1 in their relegation pool game at the Women's EuroHockey Championship in Antwerp.

The win means Ireland need only to draw with Russia on Sunday to preserve their top tier status.
