The Five Pointer looks ahead to the weekend's action

Welcome to the Five Pointer, Yahoo Sport’s video preview of the weekend’s sporting action.

The Ashes continues with England looking to draw the series 2-2.

Batsman Jos Buttler admitted he was surprised Australia won the toss and decided to bowl yesterday.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has said that Christian Eriksen was never unhappy at Spurs despite being linked with a move away from the club. Spurs play Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Wolves on Saturday, former Blues defender Ashley Cole has praised Mason Mount. The midfielder broke into Frank Lampard’s first team this season and Cole thinks it has a lot to do with Mount’s mentality.

Tyson Fury is back in action this weekend. The heavyweight faces Otto Wallin in Las Vegas.

Wallin has 20 wins from his 20 fights, but Fury is still the clear favourite to win the contest.

Fury is looking to improve his record of 28 wins and one draw. The fight is expected to start at 5am BST.

And finally, we have a viral video of Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk from the International break.

A young Dutch fan was so nervous to meet her idol, she couldn’t even look at him as he signed some autographs and posed for pictures.

She clung to her dad and wouldn’t let go.

Van Dijk will be in action for Liverpool in Saturday’s early game, when Newcastle are the visitors to Anfield.
