As it happened

  1. 1938: 

    So we may have ended on a bum note, but there's still plenty to check out on Match of the Day tonight. The action starts at 2230 on BBC One and BBC HD, as well as on this website. Make you sure you catch the goalkeeping clangers at Sunderland and Wigan, and my shout for goal of the day goes to Zoltan Gera.

    Have a good evening and join Mike Henson for tomorrow's feast of live footy. See you later.

  2. 1935: 

    Matt in Hailsham on text via 81111: "So that's another Saturday of football over. Now looking forward to the Chelsea and City game tomorrow to see what Benitez has done!!!"

  3. 1935: 

    Forgive on Twitter: "Two clean sheets in a row. The best defence in the league. The foundations are there for Arsenal to move up the table."

  4. 1934:  
    MOTD's Guy Mowbray at Villa ParkAston Villa 0-0 Arsenal

    "Arsene Wenger cuts a figure of frustration as he makes his way out of the wet. Ian Culverhouse has done a good job as Paul Lambert looked on from high in the stands. It was a brave performance from a young and emerging Villa team."

  5. 1934:  
    MOTD's Alistair Mann at the DW StadiumWigan 3-2 Reading

    "A dramatic end to a game high in drama. Jordi Gomez will get the headlines for his hat-trick but Reading will feel they should have come away with a point after having a strong penalty appeal waved away."

  6. 1934:  
    MOTD's John Motson at the Britannia StadiumStoke 1-0 Fulham

    "The goal from Charlie Adam midway through the first half was decisive. You have got to say Stoke were made to fight hard for the victory in shocking conditions at the Britannia Stadium."

  7. 1933:  
    MOTD's Simon Brotherton at Old TraffordMan Utd 3-1 QPR

    "In the end a not unexpected scoreline but for an hour Manchester United were off-key as QPR made a real go of it. But three goals in eight minutes turned the game around and won the game for Manchester United."

  8. 1933:  
    MOTD's Jonathan Pearce at Goodison ParkEverton 1-1 Norwich

    "Norwich worked very hard for their point - they never gave up and showed great spirit but Everton will be kicking themselves at conceding an equaliser so late after such a bright start - it's groundhog day for David Moyes."

  9. 1932:  
    MOTD's Steve Wilson at the Stadium of LightSunderland 2-4 West Brom

    "It was a long and winding road to victory but they got there in the end - what a victory!"

  10. 1930: 

    So six Premier League games today have given us 18 goals. Here's what happened in them all...

  11. 1928: 

    Allan Abbas on Twitter: "Playing Coquelin leaving Wilshere on the bench, shows Wenger has lost it and wants to justify his team selection."

    Vishak on Twitter: "Pah! Inconsistent as ever. Come Christmas hope Santi Claus has some presents for Arsenal!"

    Hasan on Twitter: "Abramovich wouldn't put up with these results... That's why his club's won nine trophies since Wenger last won one."

  12. 1928: 

    Arsenal remain unbeaten at Villa Park since December 1998 - a run of 14 Premier League matches - but that was deeply uninspiring stuff.

  13. 1925: 

    Sulaiman in London on text via 81111: "Worst game of the day. Arsenal lacked attacking flair, Villa deserved the point."

  14. 1925: 

    So Aston Villa v Arsenal is on last on tonight's Match of the Day. If you are feeling tired at about 2340 and worry you can't stay awake for the highlights, I wouldn't worry too much.

  15. 1924: 

    Match of the Day running order on Twitter: "MOTD tonight at 10.30pm on BBC One: 1. ManUtd/QPR, 2. Sunderland/WBA, 3. Wigan/Reading, 4. Everton/Norwich, 5. Stoke/Fulham, 6. Villa/Arsenal."

  16. 1921: 

    Aston Villa climb out of the relegation zone then with that point from a game which will not live long in the memory. In fact, I've already forgotten it.

  17. 1920: 

    No. No they can't.

  18. 1920: 
    FULL-TIME- Aston Villa 0-0 Arsenal
  19. 1918: 

    Cormac Deady on Twitter: "I smell a late winner for the Gooners, come on Santi!"

  20. 1918: 

    Into stoppage time at Villa Park - can either side find a winner?

  21. 1915: 

    Oliver Render on Twitter: "Arsenal are so inconsistent. Spurs have lost three in a row and could still be above them come Monday."

  22. 1914: 

    It's finished Derby 3-2 Birmingham in the late Championship game. Birmingham are only five points above the drop zone.

  23. 1913: 

    Andrey Arshavin does beat his first man this time. A lovely chip to the back post, Gervinho is waiting for a tap in but Ciaran Clark makes a brilliant interception. Great defending.

  24. 1912: 

    Stoke defender Robert Huth on Twitter after the 1-0 win against Fulham: "Smash and grab today! Love it! Perfect day for football. Wind, rain and awesome support!!!"

  25. 1911: 

    Substitutes Andrey Arshavin and Gervinho have added some width for Arsenal - the problem is neither of them can beat the first man with a cross.

  26. 1908: 

    Into the last 10 minutes we go at Villa Park.

  27. 1906: 

    Will Brookes on Twitter: "Subs are meant to give you a lift! Bringing on Gervinho and Arshavin will give Villa one!!!"

  28. 1906: 

    Arsenal roll the dice again - it's Andrey Arshavin on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

  29. 1905: 

    JP in Birmingham on text via 81111: "Villa's players must be exhausted with the speed at which they are pressing space. As poor as Arsenal are, could that be the deciding factor in the closing stages?"

  30. 1904: 

    Finally, a real effort at Villa Park. Substitute Brett Holman takes a pass from Ashley Westwood, advances and then smashes in a shot from 25 yards which moves in the air, and Wojciech Szczesny turns it against the crossbar. Wonderful effort from Holman, and that goes down as a really top save.

  31. 1903: 

    We may not have had any goals at Villa Park but over at Pride Park they can't stop scoring. Nathan Tyson prods in a cross to put Derby 3-2 up now with six minutes left.

  32. 1903: 

    Elliott Bambrough on Twitter: "Football fans are a fickle lot. Deride a player all day, then sing his name if he scores. Rambo only 21 +had that horror leg break."

  33. 1901: 

    Aaron Ramsey is coming in for some stick from some fans today, but at least he's having a go. He shoots on the stretch here and the ball flies just wide. We are into the last 15 minutes and I can't recall either goalkeeper having to make a good save.

  34. 1859: 

    Conor Sammon has got his second goal of the game to put Derby 2-1 up at home to Birmingham with a scruffy shot, with less than 10 minutes left. But then Peter Lovenkrands instantly finds an equaliser with a header. It's 2-2 at Pride Park.

  35. 1858: 

    Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand after the come-from-behind victory against QPR on Twitter: "Decent result today. Bad first half from us, improved second half. Anderson changed game when he came on, buzzing for Fletch, first goal since comeback."

  36. 1858: 

    Gervinho's first touch sees him beat a man on the left but then run the ball straight out of play. It's been that sort of day.

  37. 1856: 

    Ruridh Allen on Twitter: "Cannot remember Ramsey's last good game for Arsenal. Playing like a sloth today. Wilshere to inject some bulldog determination."

    Adam Agdgdgwngo on Twitter: "I don't understand Ramsey, he wouldn't even get in the Villa team and that's saying something!"

    Ellis Hatch on Twitter: "You know a game is boring when all anyone is talking about is the facial hair, which there are some absolute beauties."

  38. 1855: 

    Lukas Podolski has yet to play a full 90 minutes for Arsenal in the Premier League, and he won't do it today. He is off with 20 minutes left, with Gervinho on in his place.

  39. 1855: 

    Statisticians Opta on Twitter: "77% - Aston Villa have conceded the highest percentage of second half goals of any team in the Premier League. Fatigue."

  40. 1854: 

    Aston Villa are next to hit the target. Substitute Brett Holman runs at Arsenal, who back off him and the Australian plays it to Gabby Agbonlahor on his left shoulder. Agbonlahor shoots hard and low but it's an easy save for Wojciech Szczesny. Just over 20 minutes left now.

  41. 1851: 

    Birmingham have equalised at Derby, where Marlon King's penalty has made the scores 1-1. There are around 17 minutes left at Pride Park.

  42. 1849: 

    Alfie Jones on Twitter: "Number of times I see Arsenal fans on here complaining about how Ramsey slows them down and loses ball is quite incredible."

  43. 1848: 

    Matt Lowton has looked alright since moving into the middle of that Villa defence, and he covers ground well to block Lukas Podolski's shot. A better chance for Arsenal from the corner though as Olivier Giroud wins the header but Aaron Ramsey side-foots over on the bounce. That's as good a chance as we have seen.

  44. 1845: 

    Christian Benteke was a huge thorn in Manchester United's side two weeks ago. He's been quit today but does well here to hold off his man and crack in a shot which takes a deflection and flies over the bar. We are at the hour mark.

  45. 1842: 

    As I say that we have a chance. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has looked as likely as anyone to score today, beats his man on the right and flashes in a low cross which Aaron Ramsey stabs wide of the near post.

  46. 1842: 

    Mohamed Toorani on Twitter: "OK, who's this cowboy? Oops, sorry, it's Eric Lichaj. Moustache from another country."

    Cynical Gooner on Twitter: "What a moustache on Eric Lichaj, Champions League quality that."

  47. 1841: 

    It's all a bit scrappy at Villa Park. The rain can't be helping, but this is dire stuff at the moment. Jack Wilshere to come on?

  48. 1838: 

    Ron Vlaar has an injury problem for Villa and has to come off, with Eric Lichaj on in his place. That means Matt Lowton moving over from full-back to the middle.

  49. 1838: 

    Norwich boss Chris Hughton after the 1-1 draw at Everton: "We know the things we have to do to get points in the Premier League, and games do not get any tougher than having to come to Everton, who are on a really good run. But we are on a good run ourselves at the moment and where I was delighted today was that, at 1-0 down, we always looked a threat. The game was very scrappy at times but it is always very pleasing when you score that late. It really is a valuable point for us."

  50. 1837: 

    Statisticians Opta on Twitter: "7 - There has been a goal scored in the 87th minute or later in 7 of the last 9 Premier League games between Arsenal & Aston Villa. Patience."

  51. 1837: 

    Remember the other week when Celtic sensationally beat Barcelona? Well they lost at home to Inverness today. That's football.

    But manager Neil Lennon has threatened to quit after he remonstrated with angry supporters behind his technical area and the match ended with a crescendo of boos from many of the frustrated Hoops support.

    Lennon said: "They are frustrated. I disagreed with them, I didn't like what they said about the team.

    "Look, if they are not happy with what I am doing and they want me to go, I will.

    "If the fans make it clear that they are not happy and they want me out then that's okay, I will do the honourable thing.

    "I can't repeat it (what fans said) because it is public arena but there were a lot of expletives and heavy criticism, which I didn't think was justified and (there was) a lack of patience with the team as well."

  52. 1833: 

    Decent opening for Arsenal at the start of the second half, as Santi Cazorla runs at the defence, plays a neat one-two with Olivier Giroud and then smashes in a rising shot which clears the bar. Some of these lay-offs from Giroud are superb...

  53. 1832: 

    Tomo on Twitter: "Watching the rugby during half-time. The difference in the quality of moustaches is unbelievable!"

  54. 1831: 
    KICK-OFF- Aston Villa 0-0 Arsenal

    Game back on at Villa...

  55. 1830: 

    Miracle on Twitter: "Imagine Cesc, Arteta, Cazorla and van Persie, Giroud, Walcott all in the same team."

  56. 1828: 

    Fulham manager Martin Jol after the 1-0 defeat at Stoke: "In the first half, they bully teams and we couldn't get the ball out of our half.

    "It is their style and I admire their style. It's almost a rugby team. I don't want to talk about the referee, I don't want to look for excuses.

    "The second half was better and I think that we deserved a point. Stoke is always difficult for us. They have a lot of size and [our centre-back] Brede Hangeland was not there for us."

  57. 1827: 

    Ah, the table. Aston Villa will be out of the relegation zone if it stays like this, leaping above Reading and on to 10 points. Arsenal, meanwhile, will stay in sixth on 20 points.

  58. 1826: 

    Tottenham winger Gareth Bale on Twitter: "An important game tomorrow at the Lane against West Ham! Need to get back to winning ways and get back up the table."

  59. 1822: 

    Ben on text via 81111: "I'm going to stop watching Arsenal in first halves. There's no point. The players seem to take 45 minutes every game to remember who their team-mates are."

    Goonerdom on text via 81111: "Arsenal play the most elaborate elegant football in the middle of the park. But does it matter when all you need is 3 points before the next game? It's like watching a film full of special effects with no plot."

  60. 1822: 

    This match needs an injection of energy in a big way. There's no Theo Walcott to come off the bench for Arsenal, but there are the likes of Stephen Ireland, Marc Albrighton, Jack Wilshere, Andrey Arshavin and Gervinho waiting to come on.

  61. 1816: 

    Clement Adebayo on Twitter: "Dear Villa, just try to hold on til the 89th minute before you score!! Do not trigger any comeback!!!"

  62. 1816:  
    MOTD's Guy Mowbray at Villa ParkHALF-TIME- Aston Villa 0-0 Arsenal

    "No goals but the ball did find its way into the net once - Andreas Weimann ruled offside. Laurent Koscielny passed up an even better chance when he was onside - the ball went skywards."

  63. 1814: 

    Nick the Gooner in Watford on text via 81111: "It took a season to bed in and learn the league, but now Mertesacker is looking as good a player as he was in Germany."

  64. 1813: 

    ...but this should have been a sixth goal conceded by Villa in the opening half. Olivier Giroud makes ground down the left and cuts it back for Laurent Koscielny, who has galloped forwards from the back, to swing a left boot at it and put it over. Very good chance.

  65. 1812: 

    Goal fans, if not Aston Villa fans, will be pleased to hear that while Villa have only conceded five goals in the first half this season, they've shipped 17 after the break. So hold on...

  66. 1812: 

    Ikenna Onyia on Twitter: "How many matches have Arsenal won with Aaron Ramsey in the starting lineup?"

  67. 1810:  
    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    You can listen to commentary of the second half of Derby's Championship match against Birmingham on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

    Derby lead 1-0 at half-time in that one.

  68. 1808: 

    From the free-kick, Villa have the ball in the net. Barry Bannan rolls it square to Ciaran Clark, who shoots low. The ball cannons into an Arsenal defender, and Andreas Weimann reacts smartly to swivel and bury the loose ball. However his celebrations are halted by a linesman's flag. Again, that looked to be the right call.


    This is interesting. Wojciech Szczesny comes to collect a ball, then as he slides on the slick surface he comes out of his area and lets go of it. But as he tries to get up the ball hits his arm and he is booked for handball. Unlucky but right decision.

  70. 1804: 

    The Gunners come forward down their left but the build-up play is ponderous and breaks down too easily. This is by no means a classic...

  71. 1804: 

    Dan Farebrother from Heysham on text via 81111: "Giroud's hold up play is incredible."

  72. 1800: 

    Per Mertesacker is back after that shoulder problem by the way. The German slots back into the centre of defence.

  73. 1758: 

    The best we've seen of Arsenal. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain runs at his man and crosses low, Matt Lowton is strong to get there ahead of Lukas Podolski and clear but it runs to Aaron Ramsey, who hits it low. The shot takes a nick off a defender and Brad Guzan makes the stop with his feet.

  74. 1757: 

    Sophie Gayter on Twitter: "In the battle of the Movember 'taches I think you'd have to say Owen 1 Agbonlahor 0."

  75. 1756: 

    Arsenal almost work Lukas Podolski into space but the final pass is overhit and Brad Guzan is able to gather. At the other end Per Mertesacker is down in a heap holding his shoulder.

  76. 1755: 

    Conor Sammon has put Derby 1-0 up at home to Birmingham with a header from a rebound.

  77. 1755: 

    Tom Castle on Twitter: "About to find out if it's possible to hold your breath for 90 minutes. Villa need something from this match."

    Akhil Sharma on Twitter: "Villa are going to get hit on the counter attack. Playing a dangerous game here with all the players prodding forward."

  78. 1754: 

    At the 25-minute mark, this game is yet to catch fire. Maybe Arsenal need Villa to go down to 10 men? This certainly looks a long way short of the Arsenal who put five past Spurs last weekend.

  79. 1752: 

    Norwich winger Anthony Pilkington on Twitter after his club's 1-1 draw with Everton: "Great point, always a tough place to come!!! Congrats to Sebastien Bassong on his goal! Grant Holt tried to rob it!"

  80. 1752: 

    We've seen a few bookings for diving today, and here's another one. Karim El Ahmadi hits the deck under a challenge from Santi Cazorla - but he is instead booked for diving.

  81. 1750: 

    Arsenal have been missing for the last 10 minutes, but here's a good attack. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain collects the ball out on the right, he cuts inside on to his left foot and flashes in a low shot which hits the side-netting at the near post. Brad Guzan had that covered in the Villa net, but it's better from the visitors.

  82. 1748: 

    There is a late kick-off in the Championship as well today, with Derby and Birmingham currently locked in a 0-0 draw at Pride Park.

  83. 1747: 

    I would have expected Darren Bent to be given at least a place on the bench though if fit. We will have to see if he is in injured again.

  84. 1747: 

    Jacob Lockey on Twitter: "Bent can't hold the ball up like Benteke can and when we play teams like Arsenal who dominate possession, we need that outlet."

  85. 1745: 

    The crowd are going now as hard work from Aston Villa twice wins the bal back high up the pitch. Karim El Ahmadi wins it back once before Lukas Podolski is hounded into an error by more good pressing. They are putting in a shift now, Villa, while Arsenal look a bit flat.

  86. 1745: 
    BBC Radio 5 live's senior football reporter Ian Dennis on Twitter:

    "Everton manager David Moyes had every right to question free-kick that led to Norwich goal but Norwich deserved draw at Goodison today."

  87. 1743: 

    The closest we've come to a goal, and it's Aston Villa who threaten. Former Crewe man Ashley Westwood has been seeing plenty of the ball in recent minutes, and he floats a lovely pass out to the left channel for Andreas Weimann. The Austrian flashes the ball in to the near post, more of a cross than a shot, but Wojciech Szczesny has to get across and turn it away for a corner. Villa controlling play now.

  88. 1741: 

    Chris Palmer on Twitter: "Darren Bent not starting for Villa when fit? He will sign for Liverpool in January."

  89. 1740: 

    Villa have a little spell of pressure for the first time, and Aaron Ramsey gives away a cheap free-kick. Barry Bannan whips in the cross but it is overhit and floats harmlessly out of play. A low-key opening 10 minutes from both sides.

  90. 1737: 

    Everton manager David Moyes was unhappy with the decision that led to Norwich's equaliser: "I thought Steve Morison mis-kicked the ball in front of us and I don't think it was a free-kick. It was a tough game but we should have seen it out and I am disappointed we didn't. We had the opportunities to make it 2-0 but Norwich were always knocking on the door."

  91. 1736: 

    Okunade Adeniyi on Twitter: "Gibbs is back, let's see if the fluidity will return."

  92. 1735: 

    Aston Villa have barely had a touch in the opening five minutes. We saw them hit Manchester United hard on the break a fortnight ago though, it looks like Paul Lambert's side are adopting a similar approach. Gabby Agbonlahor certainly offers plenty of pace on the counter.

  93. 1734: 

    QPR caretaker boss Mark Bowen on whether they have enough quality to avoid relegation under Harry Redknapp: "I would tell the fans: 'Don't lose faith'. The quality is there but everything is conspiring against us at the moment. It's individual errors which are costing us rather than team errors."

    On his future: "I really don't know. It is a good club and a good club to work for. At the moment no-one has said anything to me, but I'm still employed by the club. I played under Harry earlier in my younger days, but he will have his own ideas."

    On Mark Hughes: "I've spoken to him and he's obviously very disappointed. But that's football and he knows it is a results-driven business."

  94. 1733: 

    Rob Moriarty on Twitter: "Praying we do not go 2-0 up again today, every Villa fan knows we'll lose from that position!"

    Simon Bidwell on Twitter: "Lambert having a ban is a joke. Entirely justified in his criticism. Had it happened to a bigger team a storm would be brewing."

    Toby Moss on Twitter: "Great news for Jenkinson that Wenger feels he can afford to rest Sagna."

  95. 1732: 

    Very slick start from Arsenal, who get Kieran Gibbs in down the left-hand side but Matt Lowton makes a sharp covering tackle. Villa Park is not exactly rocking, as Paul Lambert watches from on high. He's serving a ban today.

  96. 1730:  
    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks on Final Score:

    "It looks a good team on paper from Arsenal but Paul Lambert has got Aston Villa going at last.

    "If they can play like they did against United for the first 60 minutes, they can catch Arsenal on the hop."

  97. 1730: 

    We are under way in Birmingham.

  98. 1726: 

    Aston Villa and Arsenal are out on the pitch. It looks very blustery and wet at Villa Park. Let's see how many gloves we've got out there tonight...

  99. 1725: 

    BBC Sport's Howard Nurse at Old Trafford on Twitter: "Antonio Valencia missed Manchester United's win over QPR because of a sore hip which has been bothering him for a couple of weeks."

  100. 1725:  
    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks on Final Score:

    "Fulham have a lot of injuries, and without those injuries, they will be fine in most games.

    "Martin Jol has performed an excellent transition by bringing in several young players at the expense of some older players like Danny Murphy, but these injuries are costing him. You can just see a bit of anxiety coming in because of them."

  101. 1725: 

    Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson: "We only played for 10 minutes and those 10 minutes were brilliant. I thought Anderson changed the game for us."

    On Darren Fletcher: "The boy has had a long journey back and he has showed he is back to his best."

  102. 1723: 

    Mark G on Twitter: "Will it be Arsenal the lion or Arsenal the kitten we see today? There's no way of knowing."

  103. 1723: 

    Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has praised Jordi Gomez for his hat-trick in Wigan's dramatic 3-2 win over Reading.

    Martinez told BBC Sport: "We all saw today what Jordi Gomez is all about. The crowd were quite vocal with him in the first half and other players would have tried to hide for the rest of the game. This is a game that will be remembered for a long time to come, it was a tremendous game of football to watch.

    "In addition to the goal we scored we had another three clear cut chances. Obviously defensively we're a bit disappointed with the goals we conceded, but we corrected that at the other end of the pitch."

  104. 1719: 

    Statisticians Infostrada Sports on Twitter: "Manchester United's three goals within eight minutes is their fastest run of three goals in the Premier League since a six-minute streak in the 8-2 win v Arsenal in Aug 2011."

  105. 1718: 

    Simon Mignolet must have been dreading tonight's Match of the Day after his clanger against West Brom. Little did he realise that by 1700, Wigan's Ali Al Habsi would make an even bigger error. The goalkeepers' union rally around together.

  106. 1718: 

    Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet after his mistake in the defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Twitter: "I apologise and thank the players, staff and especially all the fans for their reactions afterwards, really appreciated! Next game Tuesday!"

  107. 1717: 

    Anderson looks a new man this season. Or more accurately, he looks half the man this season. A good few stone lighter I reckon.

  108. 1715: 

    Harry Robinson on text via 81111: "Fergie has made TWO of the biggest impact substitutions this season.... Chicarito vs Aston Villa and Anderson today. Injected that little bit of pace needed."

  109. 1712: 

    Aston Villa are in the drop zone as it stands - they really need a result today. Can they see off Arsenal?

    Let me know your thoughts on this game, and all of today's action. Any Crystal Palace fans on the way back from Elland Road? Any Wigan fans singing the praises of Jordi Gomez? And anyone seen two worse goalkeeping cock-ups than today's from Mignolet and Al Habsi?

    Text us on 81111, or Tweet us on #bbcfootball.

  110. 1709: 

    There was certainly a lot more fight about QPR today - for the first hour at least. Manchester United have got, got, to stop conceding the first goal though - don't they? You have to think it will come back to haunt them at some point...

  111. 1709:  
    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks on Final Score:

    "I think Manchester United started very slowly, but once they got the equaliser, there was only one winner.

    "There was a lot for Harry Redknapp to be happy about as QPR played like a real Premier League team today."

  112. 1709: 

    Gillingham's lead at the top of League Two is halved to two points after they concede a second-half penalty and are held to a 1-1 draw at Accrington. Port Vale close the gap after winning 3-1 at Aldershot, who slip into the relegation places. Wycombe climb out of the drop zone and go up four places after beating Burton 3-0.

  113. 1706: 

    Ian Jones on Twitter: "Not sure Villa can afford to be leaving Bent out of the squad - not playing your most expensive player didn't do RDM any good."

  114. 1705: 

    That last-gasp goal for Norwich means that Arsenal can go past Everton and into fifth place with a win today now - Arsene Wenger's lads are warming up in the teeming rain at Villa Park as we speak. They will need plenty of warming up as well, it looks bleak out there.

  115. 1704: 

    Millsotheblue on Twitter: "David Moyes' lack of substitutions cost us this game."

    Wolfy on Twitter: "Watching Man Utd this season is not good for my heart."

  116. 1704: 

    Tranmere extend their lead at the top of League One despite conceding a last-minute equaliser at Stevenage. Second-placed Sheffield United are beaten 2-0 at Brentford, who go into the play-off places.

  117. 1704: 

    In all the excitement, Manchester United have skulked rather sheepishly back to the top of the Premier League table.

    They now have 30 points, two clear of Manchester City and a further two ahead of West Brom - who are in third now.

    At the bottom, QPR remain in last place on four pionts.

  118. 1702: 





  119. 1701: 
    Aston Villa v Arsenal (1730 GMT)

    There is no place in the Aston Villa squad for fit-again Darren Bent, with the only change from last weekend's 5-0 loss at Manchester City being the inclusion of Karim El Ahmadi in midfield ahead of Stephen Ireland.

    Arsenal make three changes from Wednesday's Champions League game against Montpellier as Thomas Vermaelen, Jack Wilshere and Bacary Sagna drop to the bench, replaced by Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey and Carl Jenkinson.

  120. 1700: 

    Paul in Liverpool on text via 81111: "Everton HAD to win today, very tough run of games coming up for them now."

  121. 1700: 
    LINE-UPS- Aston Villa v Arsenal (1730 GMT)

    Aston Villa: Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Stevens, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Weimann, Bannan, Agbonlahor, Benteke. Subs: Given, Ireland, Albrighton, Holman, Delph, Bowery, Lichaj.

    Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Podolski, Giroud. Subs: Mannone, Sagna, Vermaelen, Wilshere, Coquelin, Arshavin, Gervinho.

    Referee: Lee Mason (Lancashire)

  122. 1659: 

    Jordi Gomez is the first Wigan player to score a hat-trick in the Premier League since Marcus Bent in December 2007. He is also only the second Spaniard to score a Premier League hat trick after Fernando Torres. But you knew that, right?

  123. 1658: 

    Cardiff are the new leaders in the Championship, holding on with 10 men to win 2-1 at Barnsley as Crystal Palace slip to their first defeat since August with a 2-1 defeat at Leeds. At the bottom Bristol City move out of the relegation zone on goal difference after a 3-1 win at Middlesbrough.

  124. 1657: 

    Shohidur Rahman on Twitter: "Everton are just not ruthless enough and that's why they will not finish top four and probably not even top six."

  125. 1657: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Aston Villa v Arsenal (1730 GMT)

    There is no place in the Aston Villa squad for fit-again Darren Bent, while Jack Wilshere and Thomas Vermaelen drop to the bench for Arsenal.

  126. 1656: 

    Tom on text via 81111: "Supporting Everton is truly painful!"

    DaveyBilo on text via 81111: "Worst refereeing I've ever seen by Mike Jones at Goodison. Just bafflingly bad in decision making and extremely weak. Topped off by Norwich's goal coming via a free kick where the player fell over after missing his kick. Atrocious."

  127. 1655: 

    Well, well well. Manchester United come back from behind to win yet again, Everton throw away a strong start yet again, and Reading play well but lose. The only surprise we've had there is that Fulham haven't scored.

  128. 1655: 
    FULL-TIME- Man Utd 3-1 QPR
  129. 1654: 

    Jordan King on Twitter: "Anyone got Jordi Gomez in their fantasy team?"

  130. 1654: 

    Grant from Weymouth on text via 81111: "Poor from Everton. Really really poor. Don't deserve to win after this awful second half. Our season is officially ruined."

  131. 1654:  
    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks on Final Score:

    "That was an absolutely well deserved winner for Wigan. Kone has been terrific on the left, and Gomez gets the hat-trick.

    "Al Habsi, with his form this season, did not deserve to cost his side a win."

    FULL-TIME- Wigan 3-2 Reading
  134. 1653: 
    FULL-TIME- Everton 1-1 Norwich
  135. 1653: 

    Accrington equalise against leaders Gillingham through that man James Beattie. It means that their lead over second-place Port Vale could be cut to two points because Vale are now 3-1 up at Aldershot. Bad news for bottom-of the-table Barnet - Jeff Goulding fires Cheltenham in front against the Bees. Fellow strugglers Wycombe lead Burton Albion 3-0 and look set to climb from 23rd to 19th.

  136. 1651: 
    GOAL- Wigan 3-2 Reading - Jordi Gomez (90 mins)

    Hat-trick time for Jordi Gomez, and he has really dug out his team-mate Ali Al Habsi for that howler of an error. Gomez sends Arouna Kone away down the left no the break, and Kone has the presence of mind to pick out Gomez with a return pass, and the Spaniard slams his shot into the roof of the net.

  137. 1651: 

    JB on text via 81111: "Shock of the year. Kieron Dyer plays 90 minutes!!!"

  138. 1648: 

    Kenwyne Jones thinks he has sealed the win for Stoke as he pokes in at the near post, but the flag is up against him. Very late flag, but a correct flag.

  139. 1648: 
    GOAL- Everton 1-1 Norwich - Sebastien Bassong (90 mins)

    Norwich pull a point out of the fire. A terrific deep free-kick is put in to the back post, Norwich's big lads are queuing up and Sebastien Bassong thumps a header against the underside of the crossbar and in. Grant Holt pokes the ball in as it comes down but I think the ball had already crossed the line. More frustration for Everton.

  140. 1647: 

    Harry Redknapp has seen enough - he's left Old Trafford.

  141. 1646: 

    Ferg Milligan on Twitter: "The thing is, Al Habsi has actually been Wigan's best player this season. Mistakes like that overlook it."

  142. 1646: 

    Everton have a free-kick in Leighton Baines territory - but the England man hooks it over the top.

  143. 1646: 

    Good news for Bury fans - your side are back in front against Bournemouth thanks to David Worrall's strike from the edge of the area. With three of the other teams around them losing and one drawing, it could be a superb day for Kevin Blackwell's side. And how crucial could this be at the top... Jake Cassidy heads leaders Tranmere in front at Stevenage. With Sheffield United 2-0 down at Brentford, Rovers are on course to go five point clear.

  144. 1643:  
    Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker on Twitter:

    "One of the most appalling goalkeeping errors you're ever likely to see from Al Habsi makes it 2-2. Al Habs-one."

  145. 1643: 

    Maxwell Finch on Twitter: "That's why Anderson should play more. Offers a way more direct, attacking cutting edge to United's midfield."

    Marc Sepetowski on Twitter: "Everton need to take another one of these chances... Otherwise we will once again drop points."

    Michael Behan on Twitter: "Three goals in five minutes shows the ruthlessness required to be champions & turn a game around."

  146. 1642: 

    We are heading into the final five minutes now. Can Wigan or Reading grab a winner? Can Fulham and Norwich find a leveller?

  147. 1641: 

    Norwich are forced into a late change, with goalkeeper John Ruddy picking up an injury against his former club. Former Northampton man Mark Bunn is on his place for the final few minutes.

  148. 1641:  
    BBC Sport pundit Steve Claridge on Final Score:

    "Robson-Kanu has hit a deflected shot, and he has just stood there and seen Al-Habsi pat the ball onto the crossbar and then it hit him on the head. He got himself in such a muddle, he really could have done pretty much anything else other than that, he had so much time."

  149. 1641: 

    Sam in Stoke on text via 81111: "Defensive masterclass from Shawcross and Huth so far, Berba hasn't had a kick."

  150. 1641: 

    Is the 14-game unbeaten run of Championship leaders Crystal Palace about to end? It certainly looks like it. Paul Green puts Leeds 2-0 up and if the hosts can hold firm it will be their first league win since early October. Cardiff are 2-1 up at Barnsley and as things stand, the Welsh club are heading to the summit. Middlesbrough and Hull appear set to slip up, which would play into the hands of Leicester, as they lead at Sheffield Wednesday.

  151. 1637: 
    GOAL- Wigan 2-2 Reading - Ali Al Habsi OG (80 mins)

    Oh my word. Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. Goalkeeping clanger number two of the day - and the worst yet.

    Jason Roberts ploughs through two tackles into the penalty area and finds Hal Robson-Kanu in space. The winger gets his shot away but it takes a huge deflection up into the air and is coming down at a snail's pace. You would back Monty Panesar to make this catch with ease, but somehow Ali Al Habsi gets it all wrong, it slips from his grasp and trickles into the net. What a horrific mistake.

  152. 1637: 

    QPR are shell-shocked by that burst from Manchester United.

  153. 1637: 

    The battle for top spot in League Two continues, with Gillingham leading at Accrington and Port Vale back in front at Aldershot. But the story of the day could be at the other end of the table, where second-bottom Wycombe are 3-0 up at home to Burton Albion. Fellow strugglers Bristol City were 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 ahead against Bradford, but the Bantams have equalised for a third time through James Hanson's header.

  154. 1635:  
    BBC Sport pundit Steve Claridge on Final Score:

    "Two corners today have cost QPR big time. Welbeck was unmarked for the first, and then Fletcher comes in between two centre-backs who do not pick him up.

    "QPR have struggled all season with dead balls and that problem has been critical today.

    "Hernandez has now made the game safe as he has come on and been able, in usual fashion, to take advantage of the space towards the end of a game."

  155. 1634: 

    Fulham finally look some sort of threat, as Dimitar Berbatov plays a one-two on the right of the box and shoots, but Asmir Begovic gets down to keep it out. With just over 10 minutes left, home side Stoke are being made to work hard now.

  156. 1634: 

    Jack Davenport on Twitter: "Anderson is man of the match after being on for United for about 10 minutes."

  157. 1633: 

    Everton have been hanging on, with Robert Snodgrass having a shot cleared off the line, but the home side almost double their lead after a great solo run from Leighton Baines but John Ruddy turns it away.

  158. 1632: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 3-1 QPR - Javier Hernandez (72 mins)

    Manchester United are steamrollering QPR now as they grab a third in quick succession. Two substitutes combine, as Anderson runs at the defence and plays in Javier Hernandez, who was never, ever going to miss. He steers it casually into the corner.

  159. 1631: 

    At Stoke, winger Matther Etherington curls in a corner and Fulham defender Chris Baird almost scores an own goal but his blushes are spared when keeper Mark Schwarzer tips his header over the bar.

  160. 1631: 

    Sam Bull on Twitter: "I don't see why teams score against Man Utd... It just makes them angry."

  161. 1630: 





  162. 1629: 

    Not the best day for the teams at the top of League One - Tranmere are goalless at Stevenage and Sheffield United trail 2-0 at Brentford. A potentially good day, then, for MK Dons - 4-1 to the good against Colchester in Milton Keynes - and Doncaster, who are thrashing second-bottom Scunthorpe. Things were looking good for fellow strugglers Bury, but Lewis Grabban has equalised for visitors Bournemouth.

  163. 1629: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 2-1 QPR - Darren Fletcher (68 mins)

    Speaking of comebacks, Manchester United hit the front. It's another set-piece which does the damage, Wayne Rooney putting in another dangerous corner which Darren Fletcher heads down into the net. Simple, simple goal. Harry Redknapp will not be pleased.

  164. 1627: 
    GOAL- Wigan 2-1 Reading - Jordi Gomez (68 mins)

    Wigan complete the turnaround. Again the goal comes down their left, this time it's Jean Beausejour who whips it in, and Jordi Gomez arrives to connect with a stooping header into the bottom corner. The hosts have been superb since the break, what can Reading find in response?

  165. 1625: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 1-1 QPR - Jonny Evans (64 mins)

    United are level. Wayne Rooney's corner is headed down by Danny Welbeck and Jonny Evans arrives to head in from a yard out.

  166. 1623:  
    Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker on Twitter:

    "Awful decision by Howard Webb. No not at Old Trafford, but at Wigan where he failed to give a blatant penalty to Reading."

  167. 1623: 

    It is end to end stuff at the DW Stadium now and Reading have had a penalty appeal turned down by Howard Webb after Maynor Figueroa had brought down Jay Tabb. Moments later, Wigan keeper Ali Al Habsi makes a stunning save to deny Adam le Fondre. This game is not over yet.


    Huge noise at Elland Road as Leeds, winless in seven Championship games, open the scoring against leaders Crystal Palace through Luciano Becchio. What a big result that could be with Cardiff still leading at Barnsley. Down at the Amex, Bruno Saltor puts Brighton 1-0 up against Bolton with a goal that has infuriated Trotters boss Dougie Freedman. With Middlesbrough trailing against Bristol City after Stephen Pearson's strike at a foggy Riverside and Hull losing to Burnley, Gus Poyet's Brighton could be in the play-off spots by the close of play. Elsewhere, Leicester lead at Sheffield Wednesday, Kevin Phillips hauls Blackpool back into contention at home to Watford and Nottingham Forest are 2-1 up at Wolves. In the basement battle at Portman Road, a DJ Campbell penalty levels for Ipswich against Peterborough.

  169. 1622: 

    Ajit Singh in Uxbridge on text via 81111: "What the hell are United doing?! A great chance to go top of the league ahead of Chelsea vs City tomorrow and it seems like we are not hungry for three points! Stop playing old players, it won't keep working and that's clearly showing. We keep conceding and that is a massive concern!"

  170. 1621: 

    Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has listened to you lot tweeting in as he makes a double change - Javier Hernandez and Anderson are on in place of Ashley Young and Paul Scholes. Will Chicharito do it again?

  171. 1620: 

    QPR go close to a second at Old Trafford, as Kieron Dyer again threatens on the break, smashing in a low cross-shot from the right towards that man Jamie Mackie. A warning sign.

  172. 1620: 

    Matt in Hailsham on text via 81111: "Can't help but think good old Harry has had a word with his new team, the spirit and fight makes them look like a different team!"

  173. 1620: 

    Norwich's best effort of the second half sees Anthony Pilkington curl a wicked free-kick over the Everton wall, forcing Tim Howard to scramble across his line to stop it from squeezing into the top corner. Grant Holt then gets in behind the defence but Howard manages to get it away. Norwich having a good spell here.

  174. 1619: 

    Trevor D. Forde on Twitter: "Harry Potter, I mean Harry Redknapp is working his magic from the stands."

  175. 1617: 
    GOAL- Wigan 1-1 Reading - Jordi Gomez (58 mins)

    Franco Di Santo has made a big difference to Wigan since coming on and he makes the equaliser with a cross from the left. Jordi Gomez - back in the team today - arrives on it and while Adam Federici stops his shot, he can only tip it back in to his path for Gomez to lash in the rebound. Game on.

  176. 1616: 

    Before we all get carried away, let's not forget that Manchester United have made a habit from coming back this season...

  177. 1616: 

    Gareth Soye on Twitter: "Have these QPR players suddenly become good in a week or were they simply not trying before?"

  178. 1616:  
    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks on Final Score:

    "It was absolutely deserved. What was really telling is that six QPR players were in the box.

    "That was their intent, that was the difference from last weekend."

  179. 1613: 

    Raj Kotecha on Twitter: "The way they've played makes you wonder whether QPR took an approach to Hughes that was similar to what Chelsea did to AVB."

  180. 1613: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 0-1 QPR - Jamie Mackie (52 mins)

    He scored a dramatic goal in Manchester last May, and Jamie Mackie has done it again. Manchester United fall behind for the ninth time in 13 Premier League games this season as a short corner is worked in to Kieron Dyer who puts a cross-shot in from the left. Anders Lindegaard can only palm it out and Mackie has a tap in.

  181. 1612: 

    QPR construct a nice counter-attack after Paul Scholes is denied by a great tackle, but Djibril Cisse runs out of steam at the end of it and can't get his shot away.

  182. 1609: 

    We've found QPR's most skilful player - it's goalkeeper Julio Cesar. The Brazilian gets a backpass under control, Wayne Rooney sprints at hi to close him down, and Cesar skips away from the England man with a lovely little drop of the hips. Samba keeping.

  183. 1609: 

    Declan in Exeter on text via 81111: "Great half from Stoke, just need Owen fit. We're missing far too many golden chances to score. Come on you mighty Potters."

  184. 1608: 

    Norwich win a free-kick in a decent position as they search for an early leveller at Everton, but the ball in is poor and easily dealt with.

  185. 1607:  
    BBC Sport pundit Steve Claridge on Final Score:

    "When you consider how QPR played last weekend against Southampton, it has been a completely different performance.

    "They've gone back to the old guard, and now have a bit of fight, spirit and gumption about them."

  186. 1607: 

    Onai in Redhill on text via 81111: "Seems the talents of Anderson and Cleverley are saved for Europe while the Prem gets the old legs of Scholes & the equally slow Carrick, badly missing Kagawa!"

  187. 1606: 

    Stoke almost double their lead. Again Fulham do not deal with a cross too well, it falls to Jon Walters to tee up Glenn Whelan, but the midfielder side-foots his shot from 20 yards narrowly over. Fulham are really missing Brede Hangeland this afternoon.

  188. 1606: 
    KICK-OFF- Man Utd 0-0 QPR

    Back under way at Old Trafford.

  189. 1605: 

    Wigan make a change at the break, with Argentine striker Franco Di Santo on for Shaun Maloney. And he goes close with his very first touch, sending Adam Federici flying to his left to keep out his shot. Better,

  190. 1605: 

    Myles Weston finds the top-left corner shortly before half-time to put leaders Gillingham in front at Accrington, while second-placed Port Vale have seen their early lead cancelled out at Aldershot. The Shots could drop into the relegation zone if things stay as they are because Wycombe, a point below them, are 1-0 up against Burton Albion through Matt McClure. Meanwhile, Bristol Rovers are on course to upset Bradford and overtake AFC Wimbledon - they lead 2-1 and the Dons are 2-0 down at Morecambe.

  191. 1604: 

    We are back under way at Wigan, Everton and Stoke. It is hammering down with rain at every game...

  192. 1603: 

    Chris in Leicester on text via 81111: "Don't understand all the Stoke-bashing that goes on every week. Yeah it might not be pretty, but they're doing better than some other clubs who spend more money, change their manager regularly. They're in the Premier League and give anyone a good game every week. I say fair play!"

    BBC Final Score

    You can now hear Mark Chapman, Garth Crooks and Steve Claridge talking you through the Premier League and Football League action on BBC Two, as well as the BBC Sport website and BBC HD Channel.


    Sheffield United's chances of overtaking Tranmere at the League One summit look slim - they trail Brentford 2-0 at the break. United's day could get a whole lot worse with MK Dons and Doncaster both winning. Alan Judge has delivered his verdict for Notts County - they lead Swindon 1-0 and could replace Paolo Di Canio's men in the play-off spots if they win that one. Bottom-placed Hartlepool are ahead at Walsall through Evan Horwood's penalty and fellow strugglers Bury, looking to continue their recent revival, lead Bournemouth.

  195. 1600: 

    CJ on Twitter: "That Fergie statue has more go then this United team."

    Carl Millar on Twitter: "United's lack of a midfield gets more worrying every week. Last quality CM we bought? Owen Hargreaves in 2007."






  197. 1558: 

    Half-time in the Championship and Cardiff lead 1-0 at Barnsley through Ben Nugent's first senior goal. As things stand, Crystal Palace and Cardiff are level on points at the top. Third-place Middlesbrough conceded a shock opener against second-bottom Bristol City, but they're back on level terms thanks to Ishmael Miller's close-range equaliser. Elsewhere, Leicester and Sheffield Wednesday's contrasting fortunes continue as the Foxes reach the break 1-0 up at Hillsborough, while Lee Tomlin's second goal in as many games gives Peterborough what could prove a crucial lead at Ipswich.

  198. 1557: 

    So no goal fest on the cards in the 1500 kick-offs. The early game at Sunderland proved that the second half can change everything though, so we may have plenty of action yet...

  199. 1556: 

    Aman Sheth on Twitter: "The hairdryer must be out at every half time these days. Poor first half again."

  200. 1554:  
    MOTD's Guy Mowbray at Villa ParkAston Villa v Arsenal (1730 GMT)

    "It's the final leg of a fearful three in a row for Villa, with nothing to show from their last two games against the Manchester giants. Arsene Wenger has lost just three of 32 games against Villa as Arsenal boss, and I'd be surprised if there's a fourth defeat this weekend. A point would surely be a bonus one for Villa before key games against Reading, QPR and Stoke."

  201. 1554: 

    There is still a late game to come of course in the Premier League - here's what lies in store at Villa Park...

  202. 1554:  
    BBC Sport pundit Steve Claridge on Final Score:

    "You can understand why the old players, who have put in a shift today against Manchester United, have got annoyed with the new players that have arrived at QPR and have not put that level of effort in."

    Kevin Gallacher at Old Trafford on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Ashley Young is carrying a reputation as a diver, but Clint Hill was on his back. It's a penalty - no doubt about it. Clint Hill has got too close to him, too quickly, and has denied Ashley Young an opportunity."

  204. 1553: 

    Conor in York on text via 81111: "Don't understand the fact that Cleverly and Anderson are not playing. Against Galatasaray they were excellent. Time for a generation change Fergie..."

    Narek at Old Trafford on text via 81111: "United pathetic again! Scholes and Fletch slow... Rooney not dropping back... Bring on Anderson!"

  205. 1552: 

    So another fruitless first 45 minutes for Manchester United then. We saw them roar back into contention at Aston Villa the other week, but they were off the pace at Norwich last weekend and have looked slow again today. Time for Fergie to get the hairdryer out.

  206. 1551:  
    MOTD's Simon Brotherton at Old TraffordHALF-TIME- Man Utd 0-0 QPR

    "It has been a very satisfactory half for Harry Redknapp who has watched his new side from the Old Trafford stands. They have restricted Manchester United and have come very close to taking the lead themselves with Jamie Mackie's headed goal disallowed for offside. There's a low-key atmosphere with United yet to go through the gears - but there is plenty for QPR to work with."

  207. 1550: 

    Statisticians Opta on Twitter: "0 - Wigan Athletic are the only team yet to claim a point from a losing position in the Premier League this season. Deflated."

  208. 1549: 

    Still playing at Old Trafford, where we kicked off late don't forget.

  209. 1548:  
    MOTD's John Motson at the Britannia StadiumHALF-TIME- Stoke 1-0 Fulham

    "Stoke have the second best defensive record behind Manchester City so there is plenty of work to do for Fulham."

  210. 1548: 

    Joe Blackmore on Twitter: "Man Utd play poorly week in week out yet still win. Liverpool dominate games week in week out and rarely win, funny game football."

  211. 1548:  
    MOTD's Alistair Mann at the DW StadiumHALF-TIME- Wigan 0-1 Reading

    "Wigan have created plenty of chances but have been unable to put the ball in the net, Sean Morrison's header giving Reading the advantage at half time in what is a lively game."

  212. 1547:  
    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks on Final Score:

    "I saw Clint Hill give Ashley Young an absolute mouthful. I did not think Young was pushed by the defender, and I think he went down far too easily."

    MOTD's Jonathan Pearce at Goodison ParkHALF-TIME- Everton 1-0 Norwich

    "Everton were well worth their one-goal lead from the way they dominated the opening exchanges, but Norwich have dug in since and had one or two opportunities at the other end themselves."

  214. 1546: 

    Adam Jones on Twitter: "This is all too familiar for Everton, we need to score before it's too late."

    Henry Walmsley on Twitter: "Players like Dimitar Berbatov should not be on the same pitch as players like Huth and Shawcross."

    J Grant on Twitter: "As long as Stoke keep being the team everyone hates to lose to, we will stay in the Premier League. Come on Stoke!"

  215. 1546: 

    It's kicking off at Old Trafford. Ashley Young has upset Ryan Nelsen, Clint Hill and Shaun Derry after going down in the area. I would not want to cross those three.

    Young hits the deck after a cross from the left and Hill is instantly in his face telling him to get up. The situation is well diffused in the end by the referee.

  216. 1543: 

    A half chance for Norwich as Sebastien Bassong gets on the end of a corner but mistimes his leap and makes contact with his shoulder. Had he met that properly, he may have scored. Everton are still on top but Norwich look a threat.

  217. 1543:  
    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks on Final Score:

    "There have been a couple of flailing arms, not elbows, from Fulham. It was a lot of fuss about nothing and I am a little bit surprised that Stoke, who have so many physical players, are getting hot under the collar about them."

  218. 1543: 

    Nathan, at Old Trafford, on text via 81111: "Fletch and Scholes in the middle lacks urge and push. QPR have too many back for space to develop and Scholes/Fletch to pick off that space. We'll lose this!"

  219. 1541: 

    Just before that Jamie Mackie header, United had finally shown signs of waking up from their early slumber - forcing previously untested QPR keeper Julio Cesar into three routine saves. First, the Brazilian collects a tame low shot from Patrice Evra at his near post before stopping Wayne Rooney twice in quick succession.

    I've just seen a replay of that disallowed goal - and the linesman was spot on.

  220. 1541: 

    Anthony Mogire on Twitter: "Tired of hearing this, 'Man Utd didn't play well but still grinding on points', when will they play well?"

  221. 1540: 

    Harry Redknapp must have been on his feet as Jamie Mackie heads QPR ahead at Old Trafford - but the flag is quickly up to deny Rangers. United almost behind yet again!

  222. 1539: 

    Wigan waste another good chance against Reading, as this time Jordi Gomez does al the hard work, dribbling between two tackles beautifully. but then smashes over the top. Wasteful Wigan.

  223. 1539: 

    Port Vale's hopes of closing the four-point gap to League Two leaders Gillingham was looking good when Ben Williamson opened the scoring, but they've been pegged back by a Daniel Lopez header. Bristol Rovers are trying to pull away from the relegation zone and they lead fifth-place Bradford 2-1, while second-bottom Wycombe are a goal to the good at home to Burton Albion - Matt McClure the scorer.

  224. 1538: 

    Stoke centre-back Ryan Shawcross appears to push a defender on the way to getting his head to a cross before Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer only for his effort to come crashing back off the crossbar. Stoke are piling on the pressure now.

  225. 1538:  
    BBC Sport pundit Steve Claridge on Final Score:

    "Wigan have had three or four fantastic chances which they have not done well with. Reading's goal was against the run of play as Wigan should be ahead."

    Catch all the updates from the Premier League and Football league action on Final Score, which is live now on the BBC Sport website and BBC HD channel.

  226. 1538: 

    Brentford have the chance to climb into the League One play-off spots today and Clayton Donaldson gives them a third-minute lead at home to second-place Sheffield United. Notts County could also move into the top six and Alan Judge - nicknamed the "Irish Messi" - puts them ahead against Swindon with a superb right-foot finish from 25 yards. At the other end of the table, Oldham lead fellow strugglers Shrewsbury through Jonathan Grounds and third-bottom Bury - much improved under Kevin Blackwell - are 1-0 up against Bournemouth thanks to Troy Hewitt's low effort.

  227. 1537: 

    Theo Kabala on Twitter: "Another slow ponderous start by United, one of these days they'll make it out of the dressing room for the first half."

    Joe Thomson on Twitter: "Foul in the build up for Stoke's goal from Walters... I suppose it should be expected from that team of cloggers."

  228. 1535: 
    GOAL- Wigan 0-1 Reading - Sean Morrison (35 mins)

    Reading lead after a lively opening, and this is a great header. Nicky Shorey sends in a deep free-kick from the left and Sean Morrison leaps like a proverbial salmon to thump a header into the top corner. What a way for the former Swindon man to open his Premier League account.

  229. 1534: 

    Lovely touch from Nikica Jelavic on the edge of the area plays in Everton's goalscorer Steven Naismith, but Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy is off his line at super speed to whip it away from his toes. Ruddy was on Everton's books for a while without getting a chance.

  230. 1533:  
    Kevin Gallacher at Old Trafford on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Manchester United realise they have got the pace to cope with QPR on the counter attack. Now they have got to go forward and test Julio Cesar. At the moment QPR will be happy they are keeping Manchester United at bay."

    You can hear commentary of the game on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra now.

  231. 1532: 

    QPR are doing alright at Old Trafford on the whole. They are keeping their shape well and looking to hit United on the break.

  232. 1531:  
    BBC Sport pundit Steve Claridge on Final Score:

    "We were talking about the importance of Charlie Adam getting in contact with Peter Crouch against West Ham, and there was another example of Stoke at their best.

    "It was an archetypal goal from a Stoke perspective. With the way they are playing with Adam at the front of an attacking central three midfield players, he has to get near Crouch or he will be incredibly isolated."

    Catch all the updates from the Premier League and Football league action on Final Score, which is live now on the BBC Sport website and BBC HD channel.

  233. 1530: 

    Ashley Young goes close to putting Manchester United ahead, but it comes after a wonderful touch from Paul Scholes. He feints to hit a crunching volley but adjusts his foot at the last second to instead flick a pass out to Young on his right, but the England winger shoots wide. Pure class from Scholes.

  234. 1529: 

    Everton may be ahead, but they are missing Marouane Fellaini. Steven Pienaar is playing through the middle instead of his usual role out wide on the left, and the Toffees have lost their way a bit in the last few minutes.

  235. 1528: 

    Mark on text via 81111: "I have a bet with a mate that Everton will make Champions League this year. This match will prove it!"

  236. 1528: 

    Nicky Shorey comes to Reading's rescue with a clearance off the line to deny Arouna Kone after the Wigan striker had rounded keeper Adam Federici. Still goalless at the DW Stadium, but for how much longer?

  237. 1527: 

    Pete Park on Twitter: "Briefly I think a lot of people saw a goal there. With RVP involved, you'd have thought so."

  238. 1525: 
    GOAL- Stoke 1-0 Fulham - Charlie Adam (26 mins)

    Vintage Peter Crouch. Classic Crouch. The big man hangs in the air to knock down a Ryan Shotton cross into the path of Charlie Adam, and the former Liverpool midfielder has time to spin and drive left-footed through the legs of Mark Schwarzer. The home side just about deserve that lead.

  239. 1525: 

    In the Championship basement battle at Portman Road, hosts Ipswich fall behind against Peterborough as Lee Tomlin fires into the bottom left corner for his second goal in as many games. Unfortunately for those two teams, lowly Bristol City take a shock lead at third-place Middlesbrough through Albert Adomah's close-range strike. Elsewhere, Watford are 2-0 up at Blackpool and it's 1-1 between Wolves and Nottingham Forest.

  240. 1524: 

    The best we've seen of Norwich - and it's captain Grant Holt. He muscles his way right through three challenges befoer chancing his arm from 25 yards but his left-footed shot is screwed wide.

  241. 1523: 

    Robin van Persie has been in lethal form early on in his Manchester United career - and you would expect him to net this chance. Danny Welbeck gets to the byeline on the left of the area before cutting the ball back perfectly in to the Dutchman's path, but Van Persie can only find the side-netting. Should have scored.

  242. 1522: 

    N13K on Twitter: "Everton to dominate first half but lose 2-1 like last week I hope."

  243. 1522: 

    Adam Le Fondre hurt Everton with two goals last week, but the Reading striker has just let Wigan off the hook with a tame close range header which should have found the net. Lively start at the DW Stadium.

  244. 1520: 





  245. 1519: 

    This is better from Manchester United. Robin van Persie wriggles away on the edge of the box, he can't quite get a shot away but the ball pops into the path of Paul Scholes making a trademark late arrive. The midfielder looks set to poke in another goal, but Shaun Derry somehow makes a fine saving challenge. That was top class.

  246. 1518: 

    First chance for Stoke, and would you believe it it's come from a corner. Robert Huth wins a header at the near post but he can't steer it in.

  247. 1518: 

    Manchester United still continue to toil against a compact QPR side. We've seen little signs of inspiration from Wayne Rooney & Co as yet. Harry Redknapp will be pleased with what he has seen so far.

  248. 1517: 

    Jamie Frost on Twitter: "Good start for Norwich there. Always important to concede early so you have plenty of time for a comeback..."

  249. 1516: 

    Everton are almost 2-0 up. Leighton Baines surges in to the area on the overlap and whacks in a low shot which John Ruddy just about keeps out, Leon Osman is first to the rebound but is on the stretch and can only hook his colley on to the roof of the net. Everton looking good.

  250. 1516: 

    West Brom manager Steve Clarke must be high as a kite after seeing his side go third in the top flight. He said: "I thought we passed the ball brilliantly and managed to pick them off. To score four goals against any team is a great performance.

    "The players deserve all the credit, they've worked really hard, people have had to sit up and take notice and the Albion fans can enjoy this spell.

    "To talk about European football at this stage would be folly, there are a lot of games to go, so we'll keep our feet on the ground."

  251. 1515: 

    What a miss by Wigan striker Arouna Kone. The Ivory Coast striker heads wide while unmarked six yards out after a cross by Jean Beausejour. Reading fortunate not to be behind.

  252. 1514: 

    At the Britannia, it's been a sloppy start from both sides, with play not being made easy by some heavy rain.

  253. 1511: 
    GOAL- Everton 1-0 Norwich - Steven Naismith (12 mins)

    Bryan Oviedo makes an immediate impression on his first league start for Everton. He controls a cross-field ball on his chest, surges past Steven Whittaker before picking out Steven Naismith with a cut back which the Scot rams into the roof of the net. Fine goal.

  254. 1511: 

    Jamie Atkins on Twitter: "Who has played more minutes in the last five years? Owen or Dyer?"

  255. 1510: 

    Almost a clanger at Old Trafford now, as Rio Ferdinand slips over as he goes to play a backpass, Jamie Mackie is almost in as a result but the former England captain manages to get a toe to the ball and put it clear. A tad too relaxed there, Rio.

  256. 1508: 

    It's been as expected at Old Trafford. United are having all the ball, it's patient possession as QPR line 10 men behind the ball. They haven't been hard to beat so far this season. They will need to be today.

  257. 1507: 

    Jordan Spooner on Twitter: "Glad to see Chicharito and Giggs not in the line up. Yes good players, but not from the start."

  258. 1507: 

    Are we in for a day of goalkeeping howlers? Sunderland's Simon Mignolet got the ball rolling, or rather dropping, with a clanger of the highest order in the early game and Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is next at it. He air-kicks a clearance and almost concedes and own goal as a result, but the vigilant Robert Huth is able to clear.

  259. 1505: 

    It's a slow start at Wigan, with Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici cutting out one early cross into the area. That's been about it at the DW.

  260. 1505:  
    BBC Final Score

    Mark Chapman is joined by Garth Crooks and Steve Claridge for Final Score to bring you their expert analysis and all the updates from the Premier League and Football League games kicking off at 1500 GMT.

    The show is live now on the BBC Sport website and BBC HD Channel, before it starts on BBC Two at the earlier time than usual of 1600.

  261. 1504: 
    KICK-OFF- Man Utd v QPR (1500 GMT)

    Manchester United eventually get us under way...

  262. 1504: 

    James on Twitter: "Kieron Dyer injury sweepstake anyone? 13 minutes."

  263. 1503: 

    Fulham also go close form range in the opening exchanges. Greek midfielder Giorgos Karagounis shoots wide from 25 yards.

  264. 1503:  
    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks on Final Score:

    "Reading had a great win last week, but can they keep their momentum up? If Wigan win, it could be big for them as they could get some space between themselves and the relegation zone."

    Catch all the updates from the Premier League and Football league action on Final Score, which is live now on the BBC Sport website and BBC HD channel.

  265. 1502: 

    And we have an instant chance at Goodison, with Everton going close. Sylvain Distin pumps the ball forward, Steven Naismith lets it run across him before finding new England cap Leon Osman on the edge of the area, he curls a left-footed effort on goal and it flies just wide. Strong start.

  266. 1500: 

    We are away in our other three games then while QPR's keeper holds us up in Manchester...

  267. 1459: 

    The first casualty at Loftus Road under Harry Redknapp may be the kit man - we've got a delay at Old Trafford as goalkeeper Julio Cesar has got the wrong colour tape on his socks. Everyone has to wait now as he goes and gets sorted...

  268. 1458: 

    Julian Tsang on Twitter: "This may be the case of how many goals Man Utd can get in against QPR."

    Ryan Hanson on Twitter: "Before match, everyone thinks Man U will thrash the team at the bottom of the table at home. Reminds me of Blackburn last year."

  269. 1457: 

    So kick-off is moments away then. Harry Redknapp is signing autographs at Old Trafford - can he inspire a result for QPR from afar?

  270. 1456:  
    BBC Sport pundit Steve Claridge on Final Score praising West Brom's Claudio Yacob:

    "There are a few teams, including the top sides, who would like Claudio Yacob in their team.

    "He performs the 'Makelele role' well in front of the defence, and there are many teams in the Premier League who are not very good at winning the ball back."

  271. 1456: 

    Robbie, a Man United fan, on text via 81111: "I'm not sure which would give me the warmer fuzzy feeling: West Brom finishing the season in a Champions League place or Liverpool finishing the season outside the top 10?! Congratulations Baggies!!!"

  272. 1454: 

    There are plenty of players up and down the country supporting charity by sporting some wild facial hair at the moment. As we reach the end of the designated month there are bound to be some crackers - and some howlers.

    If you spot any particularly fine/woeful efforts, let us know on text and Twitter. We'll name and shame...

  273. 1453: 

    Meanwhile, no matter what David Moyes said earlier on - Everton will miss Marouane Fellaini hugely today. the big-haired big man has been nigh-on unplayable so far this season but is suspended this afternoon. Norwich are on a roll as well.

  274. 1452:

    There are reporters at 13 grounds around England and Scotland who will be bringing you all the latest updates from the 1500 GMT kick-offs on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

    When England's rugby international finishes against South Africa at approximately 1600, the football will return on BBC Radio 5 live.

  275. 1452:  
    Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker on Twitter:

    "Baggies bag all 3 points. 6 goals and an early contender for first game on MOTD."

    You can see which fixture opens the show when Match of the Day starts at 2230 GMT on BBC One.

  276. 1451: 

    Harry Redknapp is among the interested spectators at Old Trafford as QPR seek a first, and extremely overdue, win of the season against Manchester United. I'm not surprised he agreed to take the reins after today's game. He has had no say in the team selection...

  277. 1449: 
    Wigan v Reading (1500 GMT)

    Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is wary of a Reading side which earned their first league win last week. The Spaniard says: "Their work ethic is incredible and although last week was their first win of the campaign, believe me when I say that they've come very close to three points long before that game. Their performances have been better than the results they have had."

    While one Russian owner has wielded the axe this week, Reading boss Brian McDermott is enjoying working with Royals supremo Anton Zingarevich. McDermott says: "If you have a situation where you have an owner and there is a 'him and us' - I don't think that works. Anton is very much part of what we are trying to do here, he is one of us."

  278. 1449: 
    LINE-UPS- Man Utd v QPR (1500 GMT)

    Man Utd: Lindegaard, Da Silva, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra, Young, Fletcher, Scholes, Rooney, Welbeck, van Persie. Subs: De Gea, Jones, Anderson, Smalling, Hernandez, Cleverley, Powell.

    QPR: Julio Cesar, Hill, Nelsen, Mbia, Traore, Derry, Faurlin, Mackie, Taarabt, Dyer, Cisse. Subs: Green, Diakite, Ferdinand, Wright-Phillips, Granero, Ephraim, Hoilett.

    Referee: Lee Probert (Wiltshire)

  279. 1447: 

    Afternoon everyone - that turned into a bit of a cracker didn't it?...

  280. 1444: 

    So, that win means West Brom are up to third - above Chelsea - and just two points off the top of the Premier League table. Whichever way you look at it, Steve Clarke continues to do a brilliant job. Time for me to hand over to Tom Rostance now for the rest of today's action. See you all soon.

    Man Utd v QPR (1500 GMT)

    Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson names an attacking line-up, making five changes from last weekend's shock defeat at Norwich. Wayne Rooney, who missed the Carrow Road clash with tonsillitis, and Danny Welbeck start alongside Robin Van Persie, while Darren Fletcher makes his first Premier League appearance in over a year following bowel illness. Centre-half Jonny Evans and veteran midfielder Paul Scholes also start.

    QPR, led by Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki following Mark Hughes' sacking, also make five changes. The pair look to be attempting to add some much-needed steel to the Premier League's bottom side, with Clint Hill and Shaun Derry handed rare starts. Stephane Mbia returns from suspension, while injury-prone winger Kieron Dyer makes his first Premier League start since the Hoops' opening game of last season. Forward Jamie Mackie also gets the nod.


    Ben Mitchell on Twitter: "I'm not one to advocate rash sacking of managers, but if any manager should be under pressure now it'd be Martin O'Neill."

    BBC Radio 5 live's Danny Mills at the Stadium of Light

    "This second half has been fantastic. We have had goals, we have had action, and on the balance of play West Brom thoroughly deserved their win."

  284. 1440:  
    MOTD's Steve Wilson at the Stadium of LightFULL-TIME- Sunderland 2-4 West Brom

    "It was a long and winding road to victory but they got there in the end - what a victory!"

  285. 1439: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 2-4 West Brom - Marc-Antoine Fortune

    This WILL seal it. Romelu Lukaku runs down the right before turning to feed Marc-Antoine Fortune, who eludes a tired and desperate challenge before firing past Simon Mignolet.

  286. 1438: 

    It's end to end stuff, with just seconds left. Romelu Lukaku cuts in from the left to smash a shot against the Sunderland woodwork. That definitely would have sealed it.

  287. 1437: 

    Sunderland have got about five men up front at the moment. One of them, Carlos Cuellar brings a diving save out of Boaz Myhill with a looping header. This is going to go to the wire.

  288. 1436: 
    SUBSTITUTION- West Brom's Gabriel Tamas for James Morrison

    The Baggies are bringing on another defender to try and see this one out. Gabriel Tamas replaces James Morrison.

  289. 1435: 

    There will be four minutes of injury time at the Stadium of Light. Still time for Sunderland then...

    LINE-UPS- Wigan v Reading (1500 GMT)

    Wigan: Al Habsi, Boyce, Ramis, Figueroa, Stam, McCarthy, Jones, Beausejour, Gomez, Kone, Maloney. Subs: Pollitt, Di Santo, McManaman, McArthur, Boselli, Fyvie, Lopez.

    Reading: Federici, Gunter, Morrison, Gorkss, Shorey, Robson-Kanu, Leigertwood, Tabb, McAnuff, Le Fondre, Roberts. Subs: Taylor, Mariappa, Pogrebnyak, Hunt, McCleary, Harte, Cummings.

    Referee: Howard Webb (S Yorkshire)

  291. 1434: 
    YELLOW CARD- West Brom's Liam Ridgewell

    West Brom look a bit more anxious now. Liam Ridgewell dives in on Stephane Sessegnon and that is another booking, the Baggies' third of the game.

    Wigan v Reading (1500 GMT)

    Wigan make three changes as they look to avoid a third straight league defeat. Midfielder Ben Watson (fractured leg) and captain Gary Caldwell (hamstring) are ruled out. Ronnie Stam returns to the defence while David Jones makes a rare start in midfield. Jordi Gomez also returns as striker Franco Di Santo drops to the substitutes bench. Ivan Ramis captains the team in Caldwell's absence. Reading, unsurprisingly, name the same side that came from behind to defeat Everton last week.

    Stoke v Fulham (1500 GMT)

    Just the one change for Stoke from the draw with West Ham. Right-back Andy Wilkinson came off in that game with a back problem and has not recovered. Ryan Shotton replaces him.

    Fulham boss Martin Jol brings in centre-back Philippe Senderos for the suspended Brede Hangeland. The Cottagers also start with defender Chris Baird as well as forwards Mladen Petric and Ashkan Dejagah as they replace Damien Duff, who is on the bench, Alex Kacaniklic and Bryan Ruiz.

    BBC Radio 5 live's Danny Mills at the Stadium of Light

    "The initial save from Myhill was absolutely magnificent but Sessegnon was there at the right place at the right time to smash it into the roof of the net. There is three minutes, plus injury time, to go, and you never know.

    "You always do wonder why people leave 10 or 15 minutes before the end of the game. You see so many goals scored in the final minutes."

  295. 1431: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 2-3 West Brom - Stephane Sessegnon (87 mins)

    Maybe this one isn't all over just yet, though. Boaz Myhill does brilliantly to keep out Steven Fletcher's header from a corner but Stephane Sessegnon is in the right place to gobble up the rebound and give Martin O'Neill's side renewed hope of nicking something here.

    Those Black Cats fans who left when West Brom went 3-1 up might be regretting it now...

  296. 1429: 

    Sunderland are leaving huge gaps at the back now as they throw more and more men forward and Romelu Lukaku almost capitalises, running clear to send an angled shot past Simon Mignolet but also beyond his far post.

    By the way, Final Score is about to appear at the top of your screens (and on the BBC HD Channel). It begins on BBC Two at 1600 GMT today.

    LINE-UPS- Everton v Norwich (1500 GMT)

    Everton: Howard, Jagielka, Heitinga, Distin, Baines, Pienaar, Naismith, Hitzlsperger, Oviedo, Osman, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Hibbert, Gueye, Barkley, Vellios, Kennedy, Duffy.

    Norwich: Ruddy, Whittaker, Bassong, Ryan Bennett, Garrido, Johnson, Tettey, Snodgrass, Hoolahan, Pilkington, Holt. Subs: Bunn, Howson, Jackson, Morison, Elliott Bennett, Barnett, Tierney.

    Referee: Mike Jones (Cheshire)

    BBC Radio 5 live's Danny Mills at the Stadium of Light

    "Ridgewell just waited for the challenge to come. It was a forward's challenge.

    "It was awkward and Ridgewell went down rather slowly. Gera was very, very brave and tried to stand up to Lukaku and take the penalty but he quickly realised there was rather a large size difference between the pair and the Belgian took it.

    "It was then a very calm finish from a player who has only had two or three touches."

    You can hear live commentary of the Baggies' game against Sunderland on BBC Radio 5 live now.


    Tim Hagstrom on Twitter: "Liam Ridgewell with "Dive of the week"?"

  300. 1425: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 1-3 West Brom - Romelu Lukaku (81 mins)

    The more I look at that penalty decision, the less it looks like a penalty. Liam Ridgewell saw Adam Johnson coming and went to ground very easily. That doesn't change the fact it was given, though, and Romelu Lukaku steps up to coolly send Simon Mignolet the wrong way from the spot and give his side breathing space again.
