As it happened

  1. 1934: 

    Penalties, comebacks, hat-tricks, Cupsets and traffic chaos.

    Just your average Saturday in the footballing world really!

    Hope you all enjoyed it, thanks for your input as ever, including the tactical similarity of West Ham to the World Cup mascot. Genius.

    We'll be back tomorrow where I'll be hiding from Bishop's Stortford v Northampton. See you there...

  2. 1933: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Norwich 3-1 West Ham

    Norwich goalscorer Robert Snodgrass: "At half-time the manager told us that we needed to relax on the ball. We have played well against some top sides and have not got the results.

    "We worked really hard on the training ground this week and it's great to give something back to the fans. Especially those who went to the 7-0 defeat to Manchester City. We are delighted to get the three points.

    "I know people speak about Chris Hughton being under pressure. But it just shows you in a so-called pressure game he plays two strikers up front and we showed our character. We put things right and everything worked on the night."

    Mark Hassall: maybe Delia had the half time team talk after all?

    James Anderson: Might Big Sam's decision not to buy a striker cost him big time? Shouldn't be losing 3-1 after leading 1-0 at Norwich!

    Benjamin Hoare: Clubs should back their manager this season. Its so close from 9th - 18th a couple of results will put a club near the top half

  4. 1926: 
    MOTD RUNNING ORDER

    The running order for tonight's Match of the Day has landed.

    1. Chelsea/West Brom, 2. Liverpool/Fulham, 3. Southampton/Hull, 4. Norwich/WestHam, 5. Villa/Cardiff, 6. Palace/Everton

    You can watch that lot on BBC One at 2250 GMT.

  5. 1925: 
    FULL-TIME STATS- Norwich 3-1 West Ham
    Norwich v West Ham

    West Ham may have ended the day with more possession but Norwich peppered the goal with shots in the second half and were much improved. Hugely improved.

  6. 1923: 

    A big win for Norwich and their manager. Delia Smith and the rest of the board look suitably impressed in the stands, the whole atmosphere is a world away from the gloom and doom at half-time. It just goes to show what confidence and goals can do to a team.

  7. 1923: 
    FULL-TIME- Norwich 3-1 West Ham
  8. 1921: 
    GOAL- Norwich 3-1 West Ham - Leroy Fer (90 mins)

    A third goal has been coming and Norwich duly find it! Leroy Fer nips away from James Tomkins on the edge of the box, slides a low shot past Jussi Jaaskelainen on the stretch, and then runs to the dugouts and flattens Sabastien Bassong in a celebratory pile-on!

  9. 1919: 
    Norwich 2-1 West Ham

    Robert Snodgrass leaves Razvan Rat for dead with a clever twist of the hips and Nathan Redmond ends the move with a shot over the top. Since drawing level Norwich have been a different side altogether.

  10. 1917:

    James Sanders: A prime example of how the awarding of a penalty can completely change the complexion of a game. It's all about confidence.

    Nobra commander: Sums up West Ham. Soft penalty, collapse once the goal is conceded. No killer instinct

  11. 1915: 
    FINAL FIVE- Norwich 2-1 West Ham

    Into the last few minutes then. Norwich bring on Bradley Johnson while Matty Jarvis in on for West Ham...

  12. 1913: 
    CLOSE!- Norwich 2-1 West Ham

    West Ham try a long throw but Carlton Cole is stripped of the ball and Norwich counter smartly, Nathan Redmond carrying the ball downfield and crossing low, it spins out to Robert Snodgrass and he lashes over the top. That really would have sealed it!

  13. 1911: 
    CLOSE!- Norwich 2-1 West Ham

    That would have sealed it! Robert Snodgrass works the ball in fro the right wing, Johan Elmander shoots on the turn but can't wrap his size 11s round the ball enough, shooting high and wide.

    Eight minutes left...

  14. 1909: 
    LAST TEN- Norwich 2-1 West Ham

    Into the final 10 minutes then and no launching it to Carlton Cole just yet for West Ham. Mo Diame has a low skidding effort for them though, testing John Ruddy at his near post. Can Norwich see this out?

  15. 1906: 
    Norwich 2-1 West Ham

    Norwich are flying now, as some confidence returns throughout the side. Leroy Fer is now snapping into tackles in midfield, winning the ball high up the pitch and playing in Gary Hooper to shoot low at Jussi Jaaskelainen. Norwich transformed!

  16. 1906:

    Matt Cooke: Don't know what Houghton said in the dressing room at half time, but it worked wonders

    Paul Thompson: Robert Snodgrass appears to have just saved Chris Hughton's job with an absolute pearler. Could turn their season around!

    Charlie: Hughton under huge pressure, but win this and they go above West Ham. At what stage will Big Sam's job be under threat?

  17. 1903: 
    AS IT STANDS
    Premier League

    Two goals make a huge difference. Carrow Road is swinging now, and the table as it stands now sees the Canaries up above West Ham and out of the bottom three. Chris Hughton's job security suddenly looks much more comfortable...

  18. 1902: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Norwich 2-1 West Ham

    An instant change for Sam Allardyce, as Carlton Cole comes on in place of Jack Collison.

  19. 1900: 
    GOAL- Norwich 2-1 West Ham - Robert Snodgrass (72 mins)

    Wonderful! Norwich manager Chris Hughton needed a big second half and they have got one, as they take the lead. Robert Snodgrass takes a free-kick 25 yards out, gets the whip and dip perfect to defeat the wall and swing a shot right into the top corner. Superb!

  20. 1900: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Norwich 1-1 West Ham

    Change for West Ham as we tick into the final 20 minutes, as Mo Diame comes on in place of Joe Cole.

  21. 1859: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Norwich 1-1 West Ham

    What an effort! Jonny Howson fires in a shot from 25 yards which leaves Jussi Jaaskelainen standing and watching, the ball swerves right at the last second and crashes into the crossbar! Wonderful strike, and so unlucky for Norwich.

  22. 1859: 
    Sir Bobby Robson

    Brilliant shout from Lee in Lowestoft. Here's Sir Bobby Robson with World Cup 90 mascot 'Ciao', the obvious inspiration for Sam Allardyce's tactical tinkering...

  25. 1851: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Southampton 4-1 Hull

    Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino:

    "I want to congratulate all of my players. They put in an amazing performance - all of them.

    "I hope all the players that got called up to their national sides get the chance to play. It would be great for them.

    "I think they all have amazing potential, they just all need to keep on developing their football, they all need to keep progressing as football players and playing for their national sides will give them that confidence and chance to perform at a higher quality."

  26. 1850: 
    Norwich 1-1 West Ham

    Razvan rat and Robert Snodgrass clash on the left-hand side, Snodgrass is shielding the ball and goes down, leaving Rat to run over him. Snodgrass wants some action but the referee leaves it at just a free-kick.

  27. 1849: 
    Norwich 1-1 West Ham

    James Collins looks up and lumps a pass a good 30 yards too long. Wrong club out of the bag there and Norwich have the ball back, they then put together a decent attack and Leroy Fer smacks a shot over the bar.

    Into the last half hour, can Norwich take advantage of their gifted equaliser?

    James Penney: Looked like a soft decision to me but we'll take anything at the moment... #ncfc

  29. 1844: 
    CLOSE!- Norwich 1-1 West Ham

    Sam Allardyce's face on the bench is a picture of anger, but his side go close to an instant response, Michael Turner fluffing his clearance and James Collins shooting wide from 15 yards.

  30. 1843: 
    GOAL- Norwich 1-1 West Ham - Gary Hooper (Pen 54 mins)

    Gary Hooper won the penalty, and he takes it too, smashing it right down the middle for his first Premier League goal.

  31. 1841: 
    PENALTY TO NORWICH- Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    Jussi Jaaskelainen with a gift! The West Ham goalkeeper drops the ball under pressure, falls to his knees and then scrabbles around for the ball like a contestant on the Crystal Maze looking for gold tokens, Instead he can only trip Gary Hooper and that's a penalty...

  32. 1840: 
    GET INVOLVED

    DR: Re: West Ham graphic @ 18:21. So it's the old 2-1-1-5-1 then. No wonder Allerdici wants to manage on the continent!

    He's a maverick...

  33. 1838: 
    YELLOW CARD- Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    Norwich give it up cheaply in midfield, West Ham play the ball up top and Joe Cole takes it on nicely until Michael Turner chops him down. Booking for the former Hull man and a free-kick which Razvan Rat fancies...

    Ravel Morrison takes it though, driving into the top of the wall.

  34. 1837: 
    Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    This perhaps sums up Norwich at the moment. Leroy Fer is tackled by Mark Noble in midfield, the ball pops out and there is a two second wait while nobody goes to the ball, allowing Ravel Morrison to jog over and pick up the pieces for West Ham. No intensity or desire in that midfield.

  35. 1834: 
    KICK-OFF- Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    Back under way at Carrow Road.

  36. 1832: 
    Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    The Norwich players come back out with Chris Hughton's words ringing in their ears. They quite simply have to do much better after the break.

    NO WAY, JOSE?- Chelsea 2-2 West Brom

    Jose Mourinho's reaction to his side's late, late penalty today got plenty of you talking and if you wish to see the man himself in action the video is now live on our site. It's at the top of the page. Enjoy!

    Shane Lees: It's astonishing how Norwich are this bad at the moment, when you consider the quality they brought in over summer.

  41. 1824: 
    AS IT STANDS
    Premier League

    Norwich remain firmly in the mire as it stands then, while West Ham's lead has seen them rise to 13th in the Premier League table.

  42. 1823:  
    MOTD's John Roder at Carrow RoadHALF-TIME- Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    "Norwich fans were hoping for a reaction from their team after last weekend's heavy defeat to Manchester City but it simply hasn't come. West Ham have dominated proceedings, Ravel Morrison with the only goal. A hugely important team talk coming up."

  43. 1821: 
    THE WEST HAM SHAPE
    West Ham

    How does this 'no strikers' side work for West Ham then? It's all very fluid but as this graphic of average touch positions shows, it's been Kevin Nolan (4) who has been the furthest forward, with Ravel Morrison (15) just behind.

    The most influential attacker in that first half was Razvan Rat though. The left-back (8) caused all manner of problems bombing up and down the wing.

  44. 1818: 
    HALF-TIME- Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    And there are very loud boos from some of the home crowd as the half draws to a close. That was not pretty from the home side. Not pretty at all.

  45. 1817: 
    GET INVOLVED- #bbcfootball

    Benjamin: Pathetic from Norwich. Hughton will get most of the stick but the players are dire. Fans deserve better than this.

  46. 1816: 
    Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    Ravel Morrison floats in a header which John Ruddy punches away, but again the build-up was so easy for Norwich. The half-time reaction from the Norwich fans may not be pretty.

  47. 1813:  
    Former Norwich player Greg Downs on BBC Radio NorfolkNorwich 0-1 West Ham

    "Norwich are either panicking and losing the ball, or being forced into playing 30-yards passes backwards.

    "It has been a very frustrating display for the home fans, thus far."

  48. 1810: 
    Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    Will Martin Jol and Chris Hughton both see out the international break in charge of their current clubs? I wonder. If Fulham play Norwich any time soon I dread to think what the game would be like...

  49. 1810: 

    Opta Sports: Ravel Morrison's goal was West Ham's first in the Premier League outside London since April 27. Patience.

    An early change for Norwich as well as Nathan Redmond replaces the injured Anthony Pilkington.

  52. 1806: 
    Norwich 0-1 West Ham

    There's a lot of standing off by Norwich again as they seem content to let Ravel Morrison run at them. He is enjoying life on the pitch at the moment...

  55. 1804:  
    Former Norwich player Greg Downs on BBC Radio NorfolkNorwich 0-1 West Ham

    "Norwich are just ball-watching there. West Ham have been the more productive team, they have been getting players forward."

  56. 1802: 
    GOAL- Norwich 0-1 West Ham - Ravel Morrison (32 mins)

    And there we go! It's been coming and the method was predictable as Razvan Rat was again left free on the left. His low cross is met by Kevin Nolan, who flicks a shot against the heels of a defender, he then keeps the ball in and pulls it back for Ravel Morrison, who sweeps in from four yards out. Easy.

  57. 1801: 
    Norwich 0-0 West Ham

    Razvan Rat, the rapid Romanian, is West Ham's out ball today. He has the freedom of Norfolk but the problem is every time he gets the ball he has nobody to hit in the middle. It's a familiar tale for West Ham.

  58. 1759: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Crystal Palace 0-0 Everton

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez:

    "We couldn't find that little bit of sharpness in the final third.

    "Overall, we probably allowed ourselves to get a bit frustrated. Every time the ball went out of play it took ages to come back in.

    "It was a stop-start sort of game and we couldn't get in a position to break them down.

    "They were very well organised, worked extremely hard and made it very difficult."

  59. 1757: 
    Norwich 0-0 West Ham

    Greg Downs is referring to the 7-0 defeat inflicted on Norwich last weekend by Manchester City there. It's been better so far this afternoon, obviously, but they still lack a threat. Kevin Nolan then goes close again for the visitors, clipping a shot into the arms of John Ruddy from Razvan Rat's pass.

  60. 1757:  
    Former Norwich player Greg Downs on BBC Radio NorfolkNorwich 0-0 West Ham

    "The game has gone flat in the last few minutes. You want the crowd to pick the Norwich players up, but it is very hard after last week."

    Earlier we mentioned Zlatan Ibrahimovic's tweet which said that 'Zlatan is ready to give Nice a warm welcome' - and the big man was true to his word. The PSG man blasted a hat-trick to give PSG a 3-1 win.

  63. 1752: 
    Norwich 0-0 West Ham

    West Ham's 4-6-0 shape is seeing them move the ball around superbly at times, Ravel Morrison is particularly busy. As we've been saying all season though the problem lies with putting the ball into the net.

    MANAGER REACTION- Chelsea 2-2 West Brom
    Jose Mourinho

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho: "It was a penalty. I have watched it two or three times and it was a clear penalty in the same way it should have been a clear free-kick against West Brom when they scored the second goal.

    "So I have reason to be very upset with the referee's work. I believe he is a great referee, one of the best in European football, but he had a very unhappy game today.

    "It was dramatic because the home team was losing and in the last 15 minutes our reaction was very strong. We put everything in the game to try to score and at least not to lose. In the last part -it was even more emotional that technical and tactical.

    "We missed chances and at the end of the game, we had a penalty which is always a difficult situation to accept for the team that is winning, but when they go home they will see on their screens that it was a situation where the referee did not make a mistake. He made many mistakes during the game but that was not a mistake."

    Norwich 0-0 West Ham

    Norwich have been well and truly second best so far but this is promising, Johan Elmander winning the flick-on for Gary Hooper, who arcs his run well to stay onside. His low cross is a tester and James Collins just about stabs it clear.

    West Ham really dialling in the pressure now, as Guy Demel heads the corner against the crossbar! Norwich clinging on...

  71. 1742: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Norwich 0-0 West Ham

    Ravel Morrison runs at the Norwich defence, it's a great run and he slips a pass through to Kevin Nolan. You expect the net to bulge but John Ruddy makes the save with his feet.

  72. 1741: 
    Norwich 0-0 West Ham

    West Ham win a free-kick on the edge of the box after a rash tackle from Michael Turner, and they then could have had a penalty as Joe Cole is cleaned out! But the flag was already up, Cole was offside.

  73. 1739: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Crystal Palace 0-0 Everton

    Crystal Palace caretaker manager Keith Millen: "It's nice to come in here (to this interview) with a smile on my face. I'm proud of the players. Everton had a lot of possession but we created the better chances.

    "If I'm being greedy we should have taken all three points but a draw gives us something to build on.

    "The fans were fantastic and you could see the spirit of the players. I couldn't ask any more of the players apart from finishing the chances we had.

    "I would be more concerned if we weren't creating chances. Tactically we have been in a lot of games this year but key moments have cost us."

  74. 1738: 
    Norwich 0-0 West Ham

    A sharp intake of breath around the office as Norwich left-back Martin Olsson charges down a shot right in the unmentionables. On a cold night, from point-blank range. My word...

    Steve Clarke

    West Brom boss Steve Clarke: "It was no penalty - that's my take. That's five points my team have lost because of late decisions on penalties. It is ridiculous to have to take it because it wasn't a penalty. Instead of being up close to the top six, we are in mid-table.

    "I'm sad and I'm angry but I'm also very proud because we were magnificent today. We deserved the three points and I'm proud of my players."

    "Little old West Brom... Proud of the all the boys today!!"

  78. 1733: 
    Norwich 0-0 West Ham

    Norwich were rank at Manchester City last weekend but have already started at a much better level. Anthony Pilkington breaks into the box after a neat move down the left but his low ball over is well pushed away by Jussi Jaaskelainen in the Hammers goal.

  79. 1731: 

    You're quite right Callum - Southampton and Liverpool were terrific today. Fulham may have been awful but Liverpool still put them away, while Southampton just continue to impress.

    More from Fulham boss Martin Jol: "We've had a difficult schedule and the task here became too big after conceding two early goals. We do everything in training and then we make the same mistakes. It was very frustrating, not only for the fans but for me and the team. But I can't come up with the same excuses, that we played better in the second half, because in the end we did not get a result.

    "If you concede goals here you have to open up a bit, but in the second half we tried to keep the damage down and that was the strategy. It was not enough for me and not enough for the team. I've got ambition and a mentality to win."

  85. 1721: 

    That is tweet of the day right there...

    Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard: "I've got a bit of a niggle so came off early and hopefully I'll be ready for the England games. The manager asked us to bounce back this afternoon and we did that - I thought we were outstanding.

    "When it works and clicks we're emphatic, and it could have been a lot more. Luis Suarez is in the top five players in the world. A lot of people like to judge him for things he's done in the past, but I judge him as a player and he's world class."

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: "Our appetite for the game was outstanding. Luis Suarez is a star talent but his core ingredient is his workrate, which is something we're trying to have throughout the team.

    "He covers and presses and is a good talisman. Our quality was very good. At half-time I said I wanted us to be relentless, to keep pushing. But our intensity was outstanding after the first whistle. We saw today as a very important game, and we made an excellent start. Home games are important, so it was a good victory for us."

    Martin Jol

    Fulham boss Martin Jol: "It was a difficult afternoon. Goals change games but they scored twice from set-pieces. We then had a big hill to climb and they were the better team. After conceding the first two goals it was almost impossible to get back in the game.

    "We were not good off the ball - they played around us and we needed more toughness and aggression, which is what we did in the second half. This is a side in the top three and four, so you try to get these games out of the way and try to get a result.

    "There are a few players who will go off on international duty so that will not help. We couldn't get a good result against a top side. The second half was not enough - you can't start like that and concede goals like that. But we are still up for the fight."

    Danny, a Chelsea fan: I feel for the referee he had a fantastic game but the final decision, a debatable decision in my opinion, will cloud his overall performance. Don't read the newspapers until next Saturday Marriner!

    Tom in Manchester: It's results like these that make me believe Chelsea will win the league. They somehow salvage points from thin air. Albeit highly underserved!

    Steve Huish in Surbiton: Terrible decision by Andre Mariner. To be honest he should be suspended for that decision - shocking.

  95. 1706:

    The support from the Crystal Palace fans remains infectious. That Bundesliga style 'we love you; chant still rings out deep into stoppage time. Dean Moxey has a knock to the head but after some treatment is ok to continue.

    FA CUP ROUND-UP

    Mansfield might have romped to an 8-1 win over Southern League Premier Division side St Albans, but it is Macclesfield who can claim the honours for the FA Cup's performance of the day after thrashing League One Swindon 4-0.

    Conference Premier side Tamworth were also giant killers as Nick Chadwick's strike earned victory over Cheltenham Town, of League Two.

    Conference North Brackley Town were denied taking the scalp of Gillingham by Bradley Dack's 97th-minute equaliser for the League One side.

    And there was ultimately disappointment for Conference Premier outfit Gateshead who had to settle for a replay as Danny Rose's last-minute header helped Oxford recover from 2-0 down to earn a second chance.

    Non-league sides Kidderminster, Stourbridge, Salisbury, Welling and Dover are all definitely through to round two.

    MOTD's Simon Brotherton at St Mary'sHALF-TIME- Southampton 3-0 Hull

    "We've seen all that's good about Southampton. They've played with flair, composure and poise. Lallana's goal was the pick of the three."

  187. 1548:  
    MOTD's Steve Wilson at Villa ParkHALF-TIME- Aston Villa 0-0 Cardiff

    "After 15 minutes you would have banked on it being a thriller at the Villa, but as the first half wore on it looks more like it would be a nil-nil-er. Aston Villa have now clicked on to seven hours without a goal. Karim El Ahmadi has had a couple of chances from distance and Christian Benteke has put himself about. Libor Kozak's header towards his own goal and a defensive mix-up which almost let in Aron Gunnarsson were Cardiff's best opportunities."

    Daniel in Darlington: I reckon Liverpool and Southampton are playing their own little game. Who can score the most goals in the least amount of time?

  189. 1545: 
    GOAL- Chelsea 1-0 West Brom - Samuel Eto'o (45 mins)

    Eden Hazard may have lost his passport in midweek but he finds the route to goal for Chelsea here, jinking in from the left to fire in a low shot which Boaz Myhill palms away. Liam Ridgewell then has a nightmare, delaying his clearance for no reason and Samuel Eto'o is sharp as a tack to nip in and stab the ball home. You don't have that sort of time with Eto'o about.

  190. 1544: 
    Chelsea 0-0 West Brom

    Chelsea's first-half display is encapsulated in a Samuel Eto'o pass, which perfectly dissects Frank Lampard and Willian and runs out for a throw-in. Meanwhile, there are signs that Shane Long's constant badgering is getting to John Terry, as the Blues skipper has a right old moan to the linesman about the Baggies' centre-forward.

  191. 1543: 
    Liverpool 3-0 Fulham

    I have to say Fulham are in absolutely dire straits at the moment. I thought they were bad at Southampton, but this a whole new level. Nobody is making any sort of a challenge as the defence and midfield just retreat to the 18-yard line every time Liverpool have the ball.

    Brendan Rodgers could bring Mike Myers on at half-time - in character - and he'd have an easy game at this rate...

  193. 1541: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Crystal Palace 0-0 Everton

    Everton go close. A Kevin Mirallas shot is destined for the bottom corner but Palace keeper Julian Speroni just about palms the effort wide. The away side look positive as Palace hang on in there.

  194. 1540: 
    CHAMPIONSHIP UPDATE

    Against the run of play a Simon Cox effort gives Nottingham Forest the lead at Leicester. A Robert Grant cross and a Stephen Dobbie header and it's 1-0 to Blackpool at home to Ipswich. And at the Riverside, Rhys Williams back-heels to Albert Adomah and he smashes past Manuel Almunia at the near post to give Middlesbrough the advantage versus Watford, only for Troy Deeney to level things at a goal apiece.

  195. 1540:  
    John Hartson, former Wales striker at Anfield for 5 live SportLiverpool 3-0 Fulham

    "That was a 15-pass move and a lovely pass from Jordan Henderson, playing through Luis Suarez who finished brilliantly. How can Sir Alex Ferguson say Henderson is not a player fit to play for Liverpool? This is embarrassing from Fulham."

  197. 1537: 
    GOAL- Southampton 3-0 Hull - Adam Lallana (37 mins)

    Yes. Yes. Yes - Oh yes! Superb individual goal from England man Adam Lallana! Goodness me, what a run this is! He picks the ball up from Rickie Lambert 30 yards from goal, goes on a mazy run down the left which sees him bamboozle two defenders, he cuts inside Ahmed Elmohamady and plants a shot across the keeper and into the corner! The watching Roy Hodgson must have enjoyed that one...

  198. 1535: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 3-0 Fulham - Luis Suarez (36 mins)

    Steven Gerrard is again given all sorts of time in midfield, he switches the ball out to Jordan Henderson who flicks it through to Luis Suarez, and he makes no mistake.

    Finally after half an hour of uninspiring football, Chelsea come close to an opening goal at Stamford Bridge as Oscar's free-kick from the edge of the area is tipped over the bar by West Brom keeper Boaz Myhill.

  205. 1529: 
    GOAL- Southampton 2-0 Hull - Rickie Lambert (Pen 30 mins)

    You just don't save those. Rickie Lambert smashes the spot-kick into the roof of the net. Could be a long afternoon for Steve Bruce's boys.

  206. 1529:  
    BBC Sport's Ben Smith at AnfieldLiverpool 2-0 Fulham

    "The atmosphere inside Anfield has changed completely in the space of those three minutes and Martin Jol, on the bench down in front of me, looks a very worried man. The first goal was all about the quality of Steven Gerrard's free-kick and the second was just a thumping header by Martin Skrtel. Mike Myers is so into this game, that he has even taken his overcoat off. He is running on the warmth of Anfield right now."

    John Hartson, former Wales striker at Anfield for 5 live SportLiverpool 2-0 Fulham

    "Steven Gerrard has such ability to whip a ball in. He curled it away from the keeper and Luis Suarez attacked the ball really well. He's such a strong header of the ball, even if it has been credited as an own-goal. This is fantastic play from Liverpool, and Suarez is just running rings round the Fulham defence."

It's controversial though, as a Millwall player was down at the time. At the John Smith's Stadium, Nikola Zigic has struggling Birmingham ahead against Huddersfield - the Serb buries a right-footed shot past keeper Alex Smithies.

  214. 1522: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 1-0 Fulham - Fernando Amorebieta (OG 23 mins)

    Liverpool do get the breakthrough! Steven Gerrard whips in a free-kick from the right, bodies everywhere in the box and as Luis Suarez just fails to get a touch the ball deflects in off the side of Fulham centre-half Fernando Amorebieta. Is that the signal for the opening of the floodgates?

  215. 1523:  
    BBC Sport's Ben Smith at AnfieldLiverpool 0-0 Fulham

    "With Mike Myers watching on from the second row of the directors' box, Liverpool flew out of the traps and produced some incisive football in the early exchanges. But for all their possession and domination, they have yet to carve out a really clear opportunity. Fulham have looked dangerous on the fleeting occasions that they have broken forward but almost all of their focus is on not conceding at this stage. Dimitar Berbatov is, as you would, expect ambling around the field with all the urgency of snail but has still shown some wonderful touches."

  216. 1521: 
    CLOSE!- Crystal Palace 0-0 Everton

    Bright start from Everton at Selhurst Park, with Gareth Barry finding Leon Osman breaking forwards into the area, the midfielder takes a good touch to steady himself but then pulls a shot wide from 15 yards. Nice move through the midfield.

    Kidderminster and Sutton United are locked a 1-1, as are Stourbridge and Biggleswade.

    But it could be a long afternoon for Alan Wright's Southport who are already 2-0 down at League One leaders Leyton Orient. Shaun Batt and David Mooney were on target for the O's inside the first 10 minutes.

  218. 1520:

I love the people here and I really do think it's my home.

    "I did not sleep last night - I cannot believe it. I'm so jazzed to be here. I can't even talk, I can't look at the soccer players in the face. I'm even starstruck by Anfield, the pitch. I didn't even want to look at it - I was a little afraid.

    "I think Liverpool have every chance of getting into that top four this year. When Sturridge and Suarez get the ball you just don't know what's going to happen. It's old-school Liverpool, getting the ball and distributing it upfield.

    Former Wales international John Hartson at AnfieldLiverpool v Fulham (1500 GMT)

    "I am fed up of Martin Jol talking about players like Dimitar Berbatov. He has not turned up all season.

    "If they do not start well against Liverpool, they will get turned over."

    Southampton v Hull (1500 GMT)

    Opta Sports: "29 - Southampton have allowed only 29 shots on target in 13-14. In the top 5 leagues in Europe only Roma (27) & Atletico (28) have allowed fewer. Unit."

    David Christian: I'm afraid Palace are already down in my book, Championship squad unable to compete week in week out at the top level.

    WOMEN'S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

    Goals from Steph Houghton and Danielle Carter give Arsenal a 2-0 half-time lead in their Champions League last 16 first leg meeting at home to Glasgow.

    Defender Houghton headed home Rachel Yankey's corner on 14 minutes, before striker Carter converted Houghton's cross two minutes before half-time. Arsenal, the 2007 champions are bidding for a 12th successive Champions League quarter-final while Glasgow have never progressed beyond this stage.

    CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW

    Leicester will be looking to extend their eight match winning streak at the King Power Stadium this afternoon, but will face a stiff test from opponents and rivals Nottingham Forest. Play-off contenders Forest may have lost their last two games but will strive to maintain their promotion push with a win in the Midlands derby.

    Table-toppers Burnley host Bournemouth - Clarets striker Danny Ings, who has hit eight so far this term, will face his former club. At the other end of the table, South Yorkshire clash Barnsley v Doncaster sees two sides struggling to pull clear of the drop zone, while Bolton journey to Millwall with the Trotters looking to extend their unbeaten run to seven.

  281. 1341: 
    MARTIN O'NEILL PRESS CONFERENCE

    New Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill on his sacking from Sunderland in March: "I was very disappointed. With my record I thought we would have accrued the five points needed from seven matches [to avoid relegation last season]. The owner [Ellis Short] thought otherwise and appointed a manager for 13 games. [Di Canio] He pretty much criticised everything beforehand and is not at work at the moment."

    What do you reckon Sunderland fans? Wish you'd kept hold of MON?

    Mark Case: I once watched Ilfracombe Town v Paulton Rovers in the preliminary round whilst on holiday in Devon. 0-1 for anyone that cares.

  283. 1340:  
    MOTD's Simon Brotherton at St Mary'sSouthampton v Hull (1500 GMT)

    "Southampton's morale will be sky high ahead of this game following the inclusion of Jay Rodriguez, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert in the England squad.

    "It's further reward for a team who've really impressed this season and lie sixth in the table after the second-best start to a top-flight campaign in the club's history."

  284. 1339:  
    MOTD's Jonathan Pearce at AnfieldLiverpool v Fulham (1500 GMT)

    "Fulham boss Martin Jol doesn't fear the sack. He may not be frightened of getting the boot, but he must be aware that his chances of staying in the job are rapidly diminishing, and this is the worst possible time for Fulham to go to Liverpool.

    "The home side will be desperate to bounce back from defeat at Arsenal, and they've won five of six games this season against bottom-half teams."

  285. 1336: 
    GOAL- Reading 1-0 QPR - Garath McCleary (62 mins)

    Deadlock broken at the Madejski, and it's a cracker too! Former Nottingham Forest man Garath McCleary drifts away from Joey Barton in midfield, takes aim and thumps a drive in off the base of the post. A skidder from 25 yards.

  286. 1335:  
    MOTD's John Motson at Selhurst ParkCrystal Palace v Everton (1500 GMT)

    "Crystal Palace are getting close to the last-chance saloon already. Seven defeats in a row is not an attractive prospect to any potential new manager, but they need to get the situation sorted quickly otherwise it's going to be too late.

    "In the predicament they are in, Roberto Martinez's Everton are one of the worst sides to face."

  287. 1334:  
    MOTD's Guy Mowbray at Stamford BridgeChelsea v West Brom (1500 GMT)

    "Jose Mourinho welcomes Steve Clarke - the man he called "my brother" this week - back to Stamford Bridge. A nice touch, but there'll be no cosiness during the game.

    "After losing at Newcastle, Mourinho won't tolerate another slip-up from his team."

  288. 1333:  
    MOTD's Steve Wilson at Villa ParkAston Villa v Cardiff (1500 GMT)

    "Back in 1998, Paul Lambert and Malky Mackay were team-mates at Celtic for a few months - the pair will no doubt put aside a few minutes for a private chat over old times and new challenges, whatever the result may be.

    "I'm sure that a discussion of the relative merits of their clubs' owners would be an interesting one; Randy Lerner and Vincent Tan sound like very different people."

  290. 1329:  
    BBC Radio 5 live's Conor McNamaraMARTIN O'NEILL PRESS CONFERENCE

    "Martin O'Neill is playing this very well. Cool, confident, cracking jokes...

    "He says Roy Keane 'will be brilliant for Ireland.'

    "O'Neill said that Keane took four seconds to accept the role, but jokes that it would take 10 minutes for the roles to be reversed between the manager and his assistant.

    "This is all a breath of fresh air for Irish journalists after years of barely comprehendible press conferences under Giovanni Trapattoni."

  291. 1327: 
    MARTIN O'NEILL PRESS CONFERENCE

    Asked about whether assistant Roy Keane is his "natural successor", Martin O'Neill says: "I'll defer that to FAI chief John Delaney sitting next to me (cue laughter among gathered press)."

  292. 1326: 
    GAYLE FORCE
    Marcus Gayle

    You can follow all the FA Cup action via our live scores service.

    There's bound to be a shock somewhere but will it come at Griffin Park where Marcus Gayle, who had two spells with Brentford as a player, returns to face the League One club as manager of Conference South side Staines Town?

    The first round always throws up stories of postmen, builders and factory workers becoming footballing heroes for the day.

    But Biggleswade Town have a burger van vendor and a cardboard box salesman to thank for having former QPR striker-turned-rapper Shabazz Baidoo in their ranks for their tie at Southern League Premier Division rivals Stourbridge.

    MARTIN O'NEILL PRESS CONFERENCE
    O'Neill presser

    New Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill: "I'd like to speak to [former manager Giovanni] Trapattoni about how he felt about managing the team. With his experience at international and club level, I'd like to talk to him.

    "My job here is to try to help the side qualify for the Euros in 2016, but that is not to say I will not play a greater role in the development of Irish football."

  295. 1320: 
    KICK-OFF- Reading 0-0 QPR

    Back under way at the Madejski, while our first FA Cup game is up and running. Grimsby 0-0 Scunthorpe as it stands...
