Cesc Fabregas scored the first hat-trick of his career as Barcelona moved closer to the Primera Division title with a 5-0 victory over Real Mallorca, but the main story was the return to action of Eric Abidal after a year out following liver surgery.

The home side were also inspired by
head coach Tito Vilanova, who was on the Nou Camp touchline for the
first time since January after undergoing treatment for cancer.

Abidal's appearance brought the crowd
to their feet, with the Frenchman given a standing ovation when he
replaced Gerard Pique in the 70th minute.

The 33-year-old former France
defender, who was passed fit to return to training with his team mates
last month, is a huge favourite with the Barca fans.

In a pitch-side television interview with Spanish broadcaster Canal Plus, Abidal thanked the cousin who provided part of his liver for the procedure.

'It was a very special moment for me after a year out,' said Abidal, wearing a shirt with 'Merci mon cousin' on the front.

'I want to thank my cousin as without him I would not be here today. It is a unique moment,' he added.

Abidal's return is well timed as Barca centre backs Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano and full back Adriano are all out injured at a critical stage of the season.

In the game itself, it was Fabregas who commanded the spotlight. In the injury-enforced absence of Lionel Messi, he scored three and
set up two for Alexis Sanchez as Barcelona romped home.

Mallorca held their own but it was no surprise when Barcelona made the breakthrough with two goals in two minutes.

Fabregas carried the ball from midfield and played a one-two with Alexis before steadying himself and coolly slotting the ball home across goalkeeper Dudu Aouate.

Mallorca's heads went down and in the 22nd minute they found themselves 2-0 adrift. This time Fabregas cut inside on the left of the area before unleashing a shot which Aouate pushed away from goal only for Alexis to follow up and fire home.

In the 37th minute an intricate passing move ended with Fabregas laying a first-time ball off to Alexis on the right of the area which he reciprocated for Fabregas to drill home.

The former Arsenal captain was involved everywhere and a minute later he provided a superb pass over the top for Alexis, who had got between two defenders, controlling the ball with his right before slotting home with his left.

Fabregas wrapped up his hat-trick seconds after the restart when he collected Iniesta's threaded ball and checked inside the defender before slotting home from close range.

Tito Vilanova returned to the Barcelona bench with the minimum of fuss tonight as his side got all of their work done inside the first 30 minutes of the Catalan derby.

Manager Vilanova, back at the helm after a brief spell out for surgery on his parotid gland after contracting cancer for the second time, was given the easiest of nights as his stellar cast of players made life comfortable for him.

They had scored all of their goals by the time the 30th minute ticked by and after that it was procession football, with Pedro twice denied a hat-trick by the offside flag while other chances also passed.

After Xavi had opened the scoring, Pedro then chimed in with his brace before Lionel Messi set off on his pursuit of 100 goals this year with a penalty.

The Argentinian scored a record-breaking 91 times in 2012 and is expected to go even further this time around. His only regret will be that he did not make the most of the leisurely second-half conditions.

The writing was on the wall for Javier Aguirre's side early on, with Xavi's goal setting the template for how Barca would play all night.

Messi slid a pass through to Andres
Iniesta on the left, the cut-back arriving for Xavi to tap in from close
range, and he opened his body slightly to make the finish.

Three minutes later Messi and Cesc
Fabregas combined to release Iniesta but he was denied by Francisco
Casilla, but the keeper could do nothing as Pedro got his first in the
15th minute.

Again it was from a cut-back, this
time from Fabregas, and at first it looked as though it was Messi`s
goal, with replays then showing Pedro got the slightest of touches to
his shot.

It was three with 27 minutes gone,
Pedro racing onto Sergio Busquets' defence-splitting pass and lobbing
Casilla, and the keeper was all at sea again a minute later as he
bundled over Fabregas as he went away from goal.

Messi duly stepped up and converted from the spot, the first goal of what will no doubt be many this year.

The brakes were applied a little after that, with Espanyol defending better and Barca not as incisive. Casilla denied

Fabregas and a flag denied Pedro a 65th-minute hat-trick when Fabregas, crossing after Messi`s pass, was called offside.

The same thing happened again with 17
minutes left as Pedro chipped wide to Alves and then followed in to
score from the cross, while Espanyol`s only real chance ended with
Victor Valdes saving from a clean-through Juan Albin.

Messi then rattled the bar with a
25-yard free-kick, but after such an early rush, there would be no more
goals as Barca restored their 16-point lead over Real Madrid.

Struggle: Bebe hasn't made an impact at Old Trafford

Portuguese side Rio Ave are confident of tying up a loan deal for Manchester United misfit Bebe.

The 22-year-old striker, who joined United for 7.4m, had an unsuccessful spell on loan at Besiktas last season.

Rio Ave president Antonio Silva Campos said: ‘He is one of the players who should be just hours away from joining but there are still some details left to address. His signing could be announced very shortly.’

Rio Ave are fifth but 14 points behind leaders Benfica.

Bebe joined Manchester United from Portuguese side Vit Guimaraes in 2010 and looks set for a return to his homeland.

The 22-year-old has found it hard to get a look in this season with Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck and new-signing Robin van Persie all ahead of him in the pecking order.

Van Persie scored his 16th goal in 23 appearances when he grabbed a dramatic late winner against Manchester City to send United six points clear at the top of the Premier League.

And he credited his success to the likes of Javier Hernandez, 24, and Danny Welbeck, 22 keeping him fresh.

'It goes both ways – I can learn from them as well,' Van Persie told MUTV.

'For example, I love Chicharito's (Hernandez's) enthusiasm, I love how he plays and trains and does his work off the pitch after training.

'When you have four strikers being so professional, it sets the tone for the others.

Manchester United have been hit and miss from the penalty spot this season but it seems there is more to the
Premier League leaders struggles from 12 yards than just bad luck.

Sir Alex Ferguson may be the most
experienced manager at the top of the game right now but his penalty
taking training sessions could do with a bit of tinkering judging by
this video of David De Gea and Javier Hernandez practicing spot-kicks.

The duo took six back heel penalties between them and failed to score any, which is a record only slightly worse than the Red Devils this season.

In all seriousness the footage, that emerged back in July, is typical of a scene at any Premier League club during pre-season as players return from their summer break.

Watch the video…

And in fairness to Hernandez, he is very unlucky not to score all three of his strikes with all three efforts coming back off the post – two of them leaving De Gea helpless.

As for the Spanish goalkeeper, his first 'little pea' roller was so poor that Chicharito nearly dived past it trying to save it. But unlike the Mexican at least the goalkeeper managed to hit the target every time – Wayne Rooney take note.

Chris Hughton praises Norwich character after Everton draw

Bassong's last-gasp equaliser is 'tough to take' says Moyes

Norwich boss Chris Hughton praised the character of his players after coming from behind to snatch another valuable Barclays Premier League point at Everton.

The Canaries conceded an early goal to Steven Naismith but fought to the end in a tight encounter and claimed a last-gasp equaliser through Sebastien Bassong.

The result came after an impressive
win over Manchester United last weekend and extended their unbeaten run
in all competitions to seven games.

When asked if his side deserved the
point, Hughton said: 'I thought we did. Over the 90 minutes we had a
long time to get back in the game.

'From our standards of late, we conceded a very soft goal and in that first half we didn't keep the ball well enough.

'Everton were the better team over that first 45 minutes.

'But when you are 1-0 down, you have to chase it and ask a little bit more of the players. I think we got that.

'I thought we responded really well.
We showed great character. I don't think there was masses in it. It was
quite a tight affair.'

On the downside for the visitors,
goalkeeper John Ruddy – who overcame a knee problem to feature – was
forced off eight minutes from time with an unrelated thigh injury.

Hughton said the player would need to be assessed but was hopeful it would not be serious.

He said: 'We won't know until
tomorrow. Hopefully he came off at the right time. I certainly had to
make sure I brought him off.'

Everton manager David Moyes bemoaned his side's inability to kill off the opposition.

The Toffees continue to ride high in
the table but have won just one of their last seven games, a sequence
which includes five draws.

Moyes said: 'That was pretty hard to

the nature of the Premier League.

'I thought we played well for 25-30 minutes. We started well and controlled the game.

'Norwich grew into the game, give them credit, they had one or two opportunities.

'I thought we had got through the
spell and we probably looked more likely to make it 2-0 than for them to
equalise. But they did and that was it. We came away with a point.'

Moyes was also unimpressed with the sequence of events which led to Norwich's equaliser.

He first had an issue with the award
of a free-kick against Leighton Baines and then felt John Heitinga and
Tim Howard should have done better as Javier Garrido swung in a cross
Bassong.

Howard might also have stopped the decisive header.

When asked which player was to blame,
Moyes said: 'A little bit of both. I think the ball was in the air long
enough and also I don't think it was a free-kick.'

Everton were without Marouane
Fellaini, Phil Neville and Seamus Coleman while Darron Gibson and Kevin
Mirallas failed to prove their fitness as hoped.

Moyes said: 'Today was always going to be a tough game. Norwich have played well and have had some good results.

'With what we had available to us it
was always going to make it quite hard. It was going to be tight – I
couldn't see us winning it that comfortably.

'We were chasing it and we didn't have an awful lot to chase it with. They are the facts.'

One positive was the lively
performance of Naismith, although the Scot squandered a good opportunity
when he failed to find Nikica Jelavic with a pass.

Moyes said: 'I hoped he would come here and get six, eight goals. That would be a decent contribution.

'He's now beginning to get a few goals, so good on him.'

Naismith arrived in the summer after the demise of Rangers, and Moyes claimed not to know the finer details of the deal.

He said: 'There's been no fee at the moment and I don't know the answer. I don't know what 'co' it is – Tesco!'

Sebastien Bassong headed a last-gasp equaliser as Norwich snatched a point from a bruising Barclays Premier League encounter at Goodison Park.

Everton had started superbly and deservedly led when Steven Naismith swept in from close range after 12 minutes.

But the Toffees' top-four hopes were again undermined as they switched off at a late free-kick and Bassong headed past Howard at the far post in the final minute.

The latest Premier League results, fixtures and tables

It was a fifth draw in seven games for
David Moyes' side but another encouraging result for Norwich after last
week's defeat of Manchester United.

After their frustrating recent results, Everton had appeared to mean business from the outset.

Just two minutes had gone when
Naismith played in Leon Osman and the recently-capped England midfielder
curled an effort narrowly wide of former Everton goalkeeper John
Ruddy's post.

Phil Jagielka, captain in the absence
of Phil Neville and playing right-back with Seamus Coleman also out,
flicked in an excellent cross but Nikica Jelavic could not direct a
header on target.

Everton's early superiority was rewarded when Naismith emphatically finished off a slick move.

Bryan Oviedo burst down the left after
being picked out by a fine ball from Thomas Hitzlsperger and Naismith
crashed his low ball into the roof of the net from six yards.

Everton could have doubled their lead
as Steven Pienaar, apparently on the right but roving across the field,
linked well with Hitzlsperger and Leighton Baines.

Baines powered into the box and tested
Ruddy with a fierce shot which he could only parry into Osman's path,
but the follow-up attempt went over.

Everton appealed for a penalty when Alexander Tettey slid in on Naismith but referee Mike Jones showed little interest.

Norwich looked to inspirational
forward Grant Holt to drag them back into the game and the Canaries
captain was caught offside a couple of times as they attempted to play
him through.

That might have served as a warning
and the Toffees had a let-off when Holt powered through challenges from
central defenders John Heitinga and Sylvain Distin, only to slice his
shot wide.

Everton responded as Osman clipped an
effort straight at Ruddy and the keeper also did well to smother the
ball as Naismith threatened again.

Another chance opened up for Osman as the first half drew to a close but again could only shoot at Ruddy.

Norwich ended the half much better
than they started it and had another chance when Bassong won a header at
a corner but his effort was well wide.

The second half took some while to get
going and it was a good 10 minutes before Everton produced a move of
note, and then Naismith strayed offside.

Norwich got an opportunity from a

effort over the wall but Howard saved comfortably enough.

Distin, still forward after a
free-kick, had a chance for Everton as Hitzlsperger delivered a deep
ball into the box but his header did not trouble Ruddy.

Everton were annoyed when Jelavic's shot from a corner appeared to be deflected behind but Jones awarded Norwich a goalkick.

Norwich went close to an equaliser as
Wes Hoolahan put Robert Snodgrass through on goal but his shot beyond
Howard was hooked off the line by the backtracking Heitinga.

Ruddy saved well to deny Baines a
second Everton goal after the Toffees left-back had charged into the
area and let fly with a fierce shot.

Naismith then slipped in Osman but he
got caught in two minds between crossing and shooting and dragged the
ball across goal and wide.

Norwich then suffered a blow eight
minutes from time as Ruddy was forced off with an injury and manager
Chris Hughton needed to turn to substitute keeper Mark Bunn.

Dead-ball specialist Baines may have
fancied his chances of killing Norwich off as he lined up a free-kick on
the right with three minutes remaining.

Tettey blocked but was booked for encroaching and Baines fired a second attempt narrowly over.

Everton paid for their missed chances
as the Canaries snatched an equaliser just as the fourth official held
up his board to indicate four minutes of stoppage time.

Javier Garrido curled in a free-kick
from the right which dipped over several heads before landing perfectly
for Bassong to power a header on target.

Howard, who might also have done better for the cross, failed to get his body in the way and Norwich held on to claim a point.

Martin Murray to fight Jorge Navarro for vacant WBA interim middleweight title

UPDATED:

20:18 GMT, 7 November 2012

Martin Murray will fight for the vacant WBA interim middleweight title against unbeaten Venezuelan Jorge Navarro on the undercard of Ricky Hatton's comeback at the Manchester Arena on November 24.

The 30-year-old from St Helens has endured a frustrating year after drawing with then world champion Felix Sturm last December.

Murray has had only one fight since then, a points win over Frenchman Karim Achour in June, but hopes to get back on track with victory over Navarro.

Dangerous fight: Murray

Dangerous fight: Murray

'This is a dangerous fight,' he said. 'It has been tough getting an opponent, but Navarro is the only fighter ranked in the top 10 willing to fight me.'

Murray held the British title until recently and was ordered to face Commonwealth champion Billy Joe Saunders but that clash failed to materialise.

Subsequently, Murray was stripped of his title and Saunders will instead face Nick Blackwell for the vacant strap at the Excel Arena in London on December 15.

Since drawing with Murray last year, Sturm lost his WBA Super title to Australian Daniel Geale but he is set to be stripped of his newly-acquired honour after opting not to fight regular champion Gennadiy Golovkin.

Murray is ranked third by the WBA, four places above his younger opponent, and will hope that victory later this month will propel him into contention for title challenges.

Navarro has been a professional for six years but has fought just 12 times, stopping 10 of his opponents early with his last victory coming against Javier Gonzalez in August.
