    That's that from the Premier League, but stay tuned to the BBC Sport website for all the latest on the developments at Elland Road.

    Perhaps enjoy the last half hour of France v England in the opening weekend of the Six Nations and we shall see you all tomorrow.

    Tomorrow's action

    There are two Premier League games tomorrow to enjoy, as West Brom face Liverpool and Arsenal take on Crystal Palace.

    Arsenal will go back to the top of the table with a win, and Liverpool could move nine points clear of Manchester United with victory.

  3. 18:07: 

    In fact, looking at Leeds' fixture list, their next four games are all away from home. That itinerary includes trips to QPR and Middlesbrough. Their next game at Elland Road is not until 8 March.

    Ken in London: Manchester United were unlucky. But does Moyes really rate Cleverley above Fletcher and Januzaj - and is he more deserving of a central role? As for Zaha... A game changer that Moyes couldn't see.

  5. 18:04: 

    Leeds travel to Yeovil next Saturday - who will own the club by then? Who will be in charge?

    Jon: The "Champions" losing a third of their league games already is a disgrace. Moyes not doing well but the players aren't helping him.

    Mark Ebsary: I think David Moyes is out of his depth!

    Tunde Akere: Enough said about Manchester United and Moyes. The resilient and compact football of Stoke to beat Chelsea and United is marvellous.

    Manager reaction- Everton 2-1 Aston Villa

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez: "I think it's without doubt the most satisfying win of the season. You come on the back of a disappointing result [against Liverpool] and in the first half we were too responsible, the players were thinking too much, and were too concerned with the outcome rather than enjoying it.

    "After going behind it was a moment of adversity, but we should be proud of the way we won."

    "Manchester United lost to a Stoke side that has lost five of their last six games. They turned it around against a team with three of the best attacking players you can find.

    "Stoke did the ugly side better. They hung in there and wanted it."

    Manager reaction- Stoke 2-1 Man Utd

    More from Manchester United boss David Moyes who says Jonny Evans came off after suffering a calf strain while fellow centre-back Phil Jones is fine after suffering a head injury in a clash with Jon Walters.

    Moyes told BBC Sport: "Phil Jones had concussion but he is okay thankfully. He has had a head scan and there are no problems.

    "You could see it was fierce clash but completely accidental on both players' behalf. Phil hit the ground with his head and that was probably it - you can tell sometimes when they are not right."

    Manager reaction- Stoke 2-1 Man Utd
    Mark Hughes

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes: "To a man, we were fantastic. We got a little bit of luck with the first goal which we have felt we haven't had in recent months but, throughout the game, every one of my players put heart and soul into what we were trying to do.

    "I was not surprised by Charlie Adam's second goal because, when the ball drops to him anywhere outside the area he has the capacity to do that.

    "In training he hits it clean and true and today it was such a good strike that the keeper was never going to get anywhere near it."

  13. 17:39: 

    Nobody knows how they've lost today do they? Norwich, Fulham, Manchester United...

  14. 17:37: 
    Manager reaction- Fulham 0-3 Southampton
    Fulham

    Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen: "We are in a situation where we seem to have to drag the ball over the line. Artur Boruc made some great saves. It was the same against Swansea. We should have taken the lead but we didn't.

    "The second goal really killed us. We have to work hard and keep lifting ourselves. It (going bottom) was always a possibility. Now we have to stand up for ourselves. At least we have some new faces in and guys who can breathe a bit of confidence into the group."

    Everton match-winner Kevin Mirallas: "Tonight I played as a striker, it's not my best position but I work for the team, it was a nice goal in the last minutes and it was important because it was a bad result against Liverpool."

    Norwich boss Chris Hughton: "I don't think you could fault our efforts. Their goalkeeper had a good day but if we make mistakes like we did we have to be scoring goals at the other end.

    "We dominated but if you are conceding poor goals at the times we did it gives them the lift they needed."

    Manchester United manager David Moyes: "I don't know what we have to do to win.

    "I thought we were extremely unlucky. We played well in difficult conditions but we have lost to one wicked deflection and one worldy.

    "But we should have been out of sight with the amount of opportunities we had today and we only have ourselves to blame."

    That first line may be telling...

    Mohammad in Bolton: Absolute disgraceful performance from Manchester United. Worst thing is there is no hard work, desire and hunger to win. And playing Juan Mata on the right. Stupid

  26. 17:22: 
    Manager reaction- Everton 2-1 Aston Villa

    Steve Bruce

    Hull City boss Steve Bruce: "I thought a draw was a fair result. There was an element of luck with their goal with Danny Rose smashing a shot, but to be fair to Paulinho he finished it well. We had arguably the better chances but we have got off 23 points and we were on that for a long time.

    On goalscorer Shane Long: "He is something we have not had before because of his pace which gets him away from defenders. His goal summed it up, he got the flick on and burst through. He will give us what we have lacking before. I was also delighted for Nikica Jelavic, he could have scored and could have scored against Crystal Palace and he has only been with us 10 days."

  29. 17:18: 
    Top of the table
    Premier League

    It's been a good day for Liverpool, as Manchester United and Spurs both failed to win. A win for Liverpool against West Brom tomorrow would leave United nine points away from the top four.

  30. 17:18: 
    Manager reaction- Hull 1-1 Spurs

    Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood: "I thought we played well today. We had some good opportunities in the second half. We never took the chances and the positive to me is that we ground it out. If we don't win the game we certainly were not going to lose.

    "We thought we should have won the game but you have to give Hull credit, they are fighting for their lives and they dug it out."

  31. 17:16: 

    It certainly is one of the more dramatic afternoons in recent memory! I wonder if Brian McDermott will stay in charge of Leeds for the rest of the season? It may depend on how this takeover pans out.

    Does anybody know? I don't think the club even knows...

    Charlie Adam

    Stoke goalscorer Charlie Adam: "I got a bit of luck, and it went in off Michael Carrick's leg for my first goal. It was lucky, but we will take that.

    "For the second, the ball sat up well and it was a great strike. Hopefully I can get a few more during the rest of the season.

    "Every result went against us today, but we showed our character. It is a massive result against a great team."

  35. 17:11: 
    League Two round-up

    Struggling Torquay shrugged off a lack of sleep to beat Portsmouth 10 at Fratton Park. Billy Bodin's first-half strike was enough for the visitors, who had to leave their hotel at 5am on Saturday morning due to flooding.

    Torquay's win leaves Northampton bottom of the table by six points after the Cobblers draw 1-1 at Cheltenham.

    Leaders Chesterfield cruise to a 3-1 win at struggling Bristol Rovers, while Oxford move into third and the final automatic promotion spot with a 2-1 win at home to Wimbledon. Debutant David Connolly scores after joining on loan from Portsmouth.

  36. 17:10: 
    League One round-up

    Tom Eaves' injury-time leveller earns struggling Shrewsbury a 1-1 draw at home to leaders Brentford, while Wolves move into a second with a 2-0 win at home to Bradford.

    Craig Davies scores on his Preston debut, after joining on loan from Bolton, as the promotion hopefuls beat Notts County 2-0.

    At the bottom, Bristol City move out of the drop zone for the first time under manager Steve Cotterill after substitute Marvin Elliott scores two goals in two minutes to beat fellow strugglers Carlisle 2-1.

    Cardiff v Norwich

    Quite how Norwich are heading back east with nothing from this game remains a mystery. Former Canary David Marshall was outstanding in the Cardiff goal, and there was some poor finishing to boot. Twenty five shots, only six on target...

  42. 17:02: 
    Championship round-up

    Leicester City are 10 points ahead at the top of the Championship after Kevin Phillips' first goal for the club earned them a 1-0 win at Bournemouth and a ninth straight win.

    Leeds beat Huddersfield 5-1, including a Ross McCormack treble, as the hosts reacted brilliantly to the uncertainty surrounding the club's ownership and the sacking of manager Brian McDermott.

    Promotion hopefuls Reading win 3-0 at struggling Millwall to stay in sixth, while Derby are prevented from moving into third by a late Ferderico Macheda, on loan from Manchester United, equaliser in a 3-3 draw at Birmingham.

    Late goals from Marc-Antoine Fortune and Jordi Gomez saw Wigan overturn a 1-0 deficit to beat Charlton 2-1, with the Addicks remaining in the relegation zone.

    Scottish football latest

    Aberdeen are in their first cup final for 14 years thanks to a 4-0 Scottish League Cup semi-final defeat of St Johnstone at Tynecastle Stadium in Edinburgh. Jonny Hayes struck twice, with Peter Pawlett and Adam Rooney adding the others in the heavy rain. In the Scottish Premiership two Kris Boyd goals earned Kilmarnock a draw at home to Ross County, and Partick Thistle and Dundee United drew 1-1 at Firhill.

  45. 16:59: 

    So Arsenal signed a player on loan to cover injuries, and he was injured. Ridiculous.

  46. 16:59:  
    David Ornstein, BBC SportKim Kallstrom update

    "New Arsenal signing Kim Kallstom is set for a spell on the sidelines with a back injury that was discovered in the medical before he signed on loan from Spartak Moscow.

    "The 31-year-old Sweden midfielder sustained the problem on Tuesday while playing football on a beach during Spartak's pre-season tour in Abu Dhabi.

    "He informed Arsenal of discomfort upon arriving at the club on Friday but, despite an MRI scan showing no damage, a CT scan found an issue with his back.

    "The Arsenal medical team provided manager Arsene Wenger with the prognosis, but it was decided Kallstrom would still join and undergo his rehabilitation with the Gunners.

    "He is expected to miss at least Arsenal's next six games, in which they face Crystal Palace, Liverpool twice, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Sunderland.

    "Kallstrom did not train with his new team-mates on Friday or Saturday and will briefly return to Sweden and Russia before moving to London and beginning a course of treatment.

    "The former Lyon player, Arsenal's only signing in the January transfer window, joined on loan until the end of the season to provide cover for injured midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, plus the suspended Mathieu Flamini."

  67. 16:46:

    HITS THE WOODWORK- Cardiff 2-1 Norwich

    It's not going to be Norwich's day, is it? Robert Snodgrass goes close again - this time directing a header onto the near post from a corner.

  73. 16:42:  
    Former Scotland winger Pat Nevin at Britannia StadiumStoke 2-1 Man Utd

    GREAT SAVE!- Cardiff 2-1 Norwich

    Cardiff's ex-Norwich goalkeeper David Marshall is having a stormer against his former club today - denying Leroy Fer after the midfielder's six-yard header appeared to be heading for the back of the net.

  75. 16:41: 
    GOAL- Everton 2-1 Aston Villa - Kevin Mirallas (85 mins)

    And there it is! It had been coming and Everton lead for the first time. It's a brave man who takes a free-kick off of Leighton Baines, but Kevin Mirallas pushes the England left-back away before curling home into the top corner from 25 yards. Beauty.

  76. 16:40: 
    CLOSE!- Stoke 2-1 Man Utd

    It's Stoke who look most like scoring the next goal in this match, with a corner almost finding it's way past David De Gea. David Moyes has reacted by sending on Javier Hernandez. He desperately needs to salvage something from this match.

    Ross McCormack

    Ross McCormack completes his hat-trick as troubled Leeds lead Huddersfield 4-1. McCormack has scored 22 goals this season and was the subject of a number of bids from rival clubs on Friday.

    Alex Pearce and Daniel Williams goals put Reading 3-0 up at home to relegation-threatened Millwall, while Championship leaders Leicester are still being held 0-0 at Bournemouth.

    Bristol City substitute Marvin Elliott's scores two goals inside as many minutes to give the League One strugglers a 2-1 lead at home to Carlisle. A win would move the Robins out of the relegation zone. A Joe Garner penalty puts Preston 2-0 up at home to Notts County.

    Stoke 2-1 Man Utd

    Wayne Rooney has resorted to picking the ball up in front of his own defence as he desperately tries to put Manchester United on the front foot. However, the Reds, who are playing in dark blue today, are struggling to break down the well-organised Potters.

  88. 16:32: 
    GOAL- Fulham 0-3 Southampton - Jay Rodriguez (75 mins)

    What a goal! Goodness me this is how to counter attack! Rickie Lambert is midway in his own half when he looks up and sends Jay Rodriguez away down the left, he's the only man in Fulham's half. It's a lost cause, but the England man cuts inside before clipping a delicious finish over the head of Maarten Stekelenburg and into the top corner. Brilliant, brilliant goal.

    Scottish football update

    Aberdeen can surely look forward to the Scottish League Cup final now that Adam Rooney has slammed in their third with no reply against St Johnstone at Tynecastle. Saints have threatened the Dons goal several times but they have simply not taken their chances and their defending has been questionable at two of Aberdeen's goals. As for the Scottish Premiership, Kilmarnock's goal machine Kris Boyd has pulled one back at home to Ross County - they now trail the Staggies 2-1 - and at Firhill Dundee United still lead Partick Thistle 1-0.

    You can follow all the action on a dedicated Scottish live text.

  91. 16:31: 
    CLOSE!- Hull 1-1 Spurs

    Paulinho's goal has opened this game up as Curtis Davies is called upon to sweep the ball away from the feet of Emmanuel Adebayor on the line, before Nikica Jelavic's goal-bound shot at the other end of the pitch is hacked away by Michael Dawson. Could go either way this.

  92. 16:30: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Cardiff 2-1 Norwich

    It's all Cardiff now, with Craig Noone and Wilfried Zaha running riot down the flanks. The latter slips another ball through to Craig Bellamy and the striker goes tumbling in the area, but his penalty appeals are turned down. Ole's half-time team-talk working wonders so far.

    Plenty of passing and neat triangles still from Everton, but Brad Guzan has not been heavily stretched in the second half. Villa doing a good job to frustrate the home fans - and players too.

    Into the final 20-odd minutes.

  101. 16:24: 
    Stoke 2-1 Man Utd

    Superb, last-ditch tackling by Marc Wilson - the Stoke defender putting his body on the line to block a Danny Welbeck shot. At the other end, Marko Arnautovic curls a shot wide. It's going to be a good final 30 at the Brit.

  102. 16:21:

    Another man who is getting closer and closer to a boarding pass for the flight to Brazil - as Saints captain Adam Lallana smashes home his eighth of the season to leave Fulham in real trouble.

    Rickie Lambert plays him in with a through ball, he takes one touch before finding the bottom corner with his left foot. Steered in.

    GOAL- Hull 1-1 Spurs - Paulinho (61 mins)

    They've not been great today, but Spurs are level after some fine Brazilian finishing at the KC. Danny Rose smashes in a shot from 30 yards, he mishits it somewhat and it falls at the feet of Paulinho, who gathers it in, swivels and lashes the ball high into the roof of the net. Fine strike.

    Stoke goalscorer Charlie Adam

    On Charlie Adam's goal: "You will have to go a long way to see a better goal than that. He caught it perfectly and the wind helped it absolutely fly into the net. What a strike.

    "This might not be the classiest game you have ever seen but it is entertaining. I don't think that will be the last goal we will see today - the conditions are absolutely horrible out there with rain pouring down and the wind swirling round. The players don't mind one bit though."

    Tottenham have been lacklustre today, and this sums up their afternoon. The ball breaks for Roberto Soldado 10 yards out, it's crying out to be hammered but he barely reaches the goal, a real tame effort. Less finesse more thump required there...

    Easy as that! A route one ball is launched forward, it's not dealt with and only half cleared to the feet of Juan Mata. He finds the key pass, picking out Robin van Persie to cushion a lovely steered finish into the far corner.

  125. 16:07: 
    GOAL- Cardiff 2-1 Norwich - Kenwyne Jones (51 mins)

    What a start to the second half for Cardiff! Norwich fail to clear a corner and when Jordan Mutch sends over a cross from the right, Kenwyne Jones hooks in at the second attempt.

    "There has to be somebody to look at that in the cold light of day and say that is certainly not a red card.

    "Now Jones has gone off, Michael Carrick has dropped back into the centre of defence, and Wayne Rooney has dropped back into midfield to play alongside Tom Cleverley, with Welbeck going up front.

    Spurs are having much more of it after that early setback but they are finding it frustrating up against the well-drilled Hull defence. Can they find a spark?

    Alex West: Hull made their signings early, avoiding the madness of deadline day, and it's paying off.

    GREAT SAVE!- Fulham 0-0 Southampton

    Dan Burn went close with a header earlier on and centre-back partner Brede Hangeland now forces Artur Boruc into a blinding save, the Pole gets up to make a one-handed stop from Hangeland's steaming header. Fulham well on top.

  186. 15:22: 
    Stoke 0-0 Man Utd

    Every time the ball is booted into the air, players from both sides resemble England cricket fielders as they try and judge the drop - with varying degrees of success. United have the right idea though - getting the ball down and trying to play.

  187. 15:21: 
    Everton 0-0 Aston Villa

    It's gone a bit scrappy at Goodison Park, where the weather has taken a turn for the worse. Villa are mixing it up looking for the long ball to Christian Benteke - a tactic which bore much fruit against West Brom in midweek.

  188.   
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 live at the Britannia StadiumStoke 0-0 Man Utd

    "Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra has been the most creative player in this game so far, sending over a number of crosses.

    Juan Mata and Ashley Young are switching wings a lot and Evra is getting forward a lot down his wing whenever either of those players wander inside."

  189. 15:19: 
    Cardiff 0-1 Norwich

    Norwich remain the better side, looking to have a little bit more class and nous about them than Cardiff. I'm beginning to fear for the Bluebirds...

  190. 15:18: 
    Fulham 0-0 Southampton

    Fulham continue to push on, Lewis Holtby and Steve Sidwell both fluffing shots from 20-odd yards. Very energetic opening 20 minutes for the strugglers.

  191.   
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 live at the Britannia StadiumStoke 0-0 Man Utd

    "The swirling wind is having more and more effect on this game as it goes on. It is proving very difficult for the players to keep the ball under control when they pass or shoot."

  192. 15:17:  
    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks on Final ScoreHull 1-0 Spurs

    Manchester United slowly going through the gears now - Patrice Evra putting the ball on a plate for Wayne Rooney but the striker stabs wide from close-range. He normally gobbles those up.

  197. 15:11: 
    GOAL- Hull 1-0 Spurs - Shane Long (12 mins)

    £7m well spent! Shane Long grabs his first goal for Hull after some classic front-two play. It's route one stuff, Nikica Jelavic makes a nuisance of himself and helps the ball on for Long to chase, he gets clear of the chasing pack and fires past the keeper with his left foot. Classic stuff!

  199. 15:11: 
    CLOSE!- Hull 0-0 Spurs

    Closer for the Tigers! Former Spurs man Tom Huddlestone whips in a dangerous free-kick and Nikica Jelavic gets across his man to connect with the volley, but he mishits it and the ball floats onto the roof of the net.

    Spurs immediately counter down the other end and Emmanuel Adebayor hits a firm drive which Steve Harper turns over the bar.

  200. 15:10: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Stoke 0-0 Man Utd

    An early change for Manchester United and another reshuffle in their defence.

    Cardiff 0-1 Norwich

    Cardiff right-back Fabio, who is on loan from Manchester United, is having a nightmare debut as Norwich load up attacks down that flank. Norwich are dominating, although Cardiff do manage to fashion a good chance from a free-kick which Steven Caulker heads over from six yards out. A glimmer of hope for the Bluebirds.

  204. 15:08: 
    Stoke 0-0 Man Utd

    Manchester United's tricky trio are operating as part of an attacking quartet in the early stages at the Britannia Stadium. Robin van Persie is up top, supported by Ashley Young on the left, Juan Mata on the right and Wayne Rooney in the hole.

    None of them have seen much of the ball so far, although Mata almost got on the end of long punt from Chris Smalling after escaping Ryan Shawcross. United are playing with the strong wind at their backs and any high ball from Stoke is blowing back towards their own goal.

  205. 15:07: 
    CLOSE!- Fulham 0-0 Southampton

    A rare foray forward from Fulham midfielder Scott Parker who tries to chip Artur Boruc in the Saints goal but floats it into the Pole's arms. Darren Bent then flashes a dangerous cross into the middle as Fulham look for an opener. Dan Burn then heads a Lewis Holtby corner onto the roof of the net.

  206. 15:06: 
    Hull 0-0 Spurs

    Decent start from the hosts as Hull create a decent chance, Robbie Brady getting on the end of a flowing move to break clear but he's off balance and skies his shot on the run.

  207. 15:04: 
    GOAL- Cardiff 0-1 Norwich - Robert Snodgrass (5 mins)

    Where's the marking? Easy as you like for Norwich, with Martin Olsson getting in behind the Cardiff defence and pulling the ball back for an unmarked Robert Snodgrass to strike home from eight yards out.

  208. 15:03: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Everton 0-0 Aston Villa

    Kallstrom

    Some worrying news for Arsenal supporters coming out of Sweden, with reports that loan signing Kim Kallstrom has suffered a nightmare start to life in the Premier League after picking up an injury that will keep him out of action for the next two to three months.

    Leading tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet say the Sweden international picked up the knock in his first training session at his new club following his deadline-day move from Spartak Moscow. This has not been confirmed or denied by the Gunners, who next play on Sunday when they host Crystal Palace.

    He was only signed on loan as cover for injuries - so his stay could be very, very fruitless...

    Ey up Frimmers...- Sheff Weds v Barnsley (15:00 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Joe Townsend at Hillsborough: "'It's grim up north' I'm sure they told him, but I do not think Emmanuel Frimpong will be put off by the prospect of rain at Hillsborough this afternoon. He has been handed his Barnsley debut in today's South Yorkshire derby with Sheffield Wednesday. If you saw the slightly bemused-looking former Arsenal midfielder holding his shirt to the cameras yesterday, you can be sure he has quickly come round to the idea of wading into the Championship relegation scrap with his new team-mates. The way he has been flying around in the warm up does not bode well for the Wednesday players - I give it 90 seconds before someone gets unceremoniously 'Frimponged'. Interestingly, he will come against fellow Gunners academy graduate Benik Afobe, who makes his first Owls start up front."

    Andy Carroll's off - and I'm not quite sure why. The big striker goes up for a physical, aerial challenge with Chico Flores and, in the motion of coming down and untangling himself from the Swansea defender, he unintentionally clips his opponent on the back of the head. And I mean clips. Very harsh.

    "Ki Sung-Yueng has been outstanding today for Sunderland. He has great feet, has worked hard, made his tackles and passed superbly."

    Listen to commentary of Newcastle v Sunderland on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  270. 13:59: 
    West Ham 2-0 Swansea

    Swansea midfielder Jonathan de Guzman has a shot deflected narrowly wide as the visitors appear to have belatedly woken up.

  271. 13:59: 
    Newcastle 0-2 Sunderland

    But Adam Johnson remains a threat at the other end as he curls a 25-yard free-kick over the bar.

  272. 13:57: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Newcastle 0-2 Sunderland

    Newcastle have been much better in the second half, and they have a strong penalty appeal turned down when Shola Ameobi goes down in the area under Liam Bridcutt's tackle. Play on, says the referee.

    Samuel Davies: Swansea looking like the 19th century team today.

  274. 13:55: 
    Championship update- QPR 3-3 Burnley

    Modibo Maiga scores a debut goal for QPR after coming off the bench as Harry Redknapp's men level against Burnley.

    The West Ham loanee taps home from close range after Junior Hoilett's run and cross from the right. Is there a winner in this game with 10 minutes left?

  275. 13:55: 
    Newcastle 0-2 Sunderland

    Luuk de Jong wants to be an instant hero, taking aim from 30 yards out but firing a low shot straight into the grateful arms of Vito Mannone.

  276. 13:54: 
    Newcastle 0-2 Sunderland

    Think positive Craig, although all 13 of Luuk de Jong's Bundesliga appearances this season were from the bench and he failed to score once.

    Craig in Harrogate: A chance for De Jong to become an instant hero?

  278. 13:51: 
    West Ham 2-0 Swansea

    West Ham continue where they left off, with Matt Jarvis nipping the ball around goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel and pulling the ball back across the six-yard box but Ben Davies is back in the nick of time to clear from in front of an unguarded net.

  279. 13:48: 
    KICK-OFF
    Adam Johnson was on the scoresheet for Sunderland

    And we're back under way in both of our early kick-offs. Swansea and Newcastle need a big 45 minutes.

  280. 13:48: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Newcastle 0-2 Sunderland

    Alan Pardew's seen enough. The Ameobi brothers experiment is over - Sammy being hooked off and replaced by Luuk de Jong.

  281.   
    MOTD presenter Gary LinekerNewcastle 0-2 Sunderland

    "Sunderland have come such a long way in a relatively short space of time under Gus Poyet. He's doing an extraordinary job."

    Wesley Cheung: I'm surprised no one has mentioned the significance of Newcastle v Sunderland being played a day after the Year of the Horse beginning with the Chinese New Year.

    Alan Kirkpatrick: Poor performance from Newcastle - changes need for the second half.

    Cletus U: Sunderland's Jozy Altidore is such a handful. He gallops more like a rugby player than a footballer.

  284. 13:38: 
    Championship update- QPR 2-3 Burnley

    Loftus Road is stunned as Sam Vokes scores his second of the game to put Burnley ahead and on course for second spot in the Championship.

    Danny Ings catches Benoit Assou-Ekotto in possession on the bye-line and his pull back is easily tapped home by Vokes.

  285.   
    MOTD's Simon Brotherton at Britannia StadiumStoke v Man Utd (15:00 GMT)

    "The arrival of Juan Mata has really given Manchester United a lift, but just as significant for David Moyes is the return to fitness of both Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

    "The last time I was at the Britannia Stadium, Stoke beat Chelsea 3-2, but they've managed only one more league win in eight since that early December afternoon and Mark Hughes' team sit just three points above the relegation zone with a tricky month ahead."

  286.   
    MOTD's John Roder at Craven CottageFulham v Southampton (15:00 GMT)

    "Fulham will desperately be hoping that history is on their side this weekend. The home side in this fixture usually doesn't lose, and Fulham desperately need points to move away from the relegation zone.

    "The last time the Cottagers kept a clean sheet in the league was way back in early December, with a 2-0 home win over Aston Villa. But Saints have stuttered of late, with only a couple of victories in their last 12 Premier League fixtures, and a host of off-field distractions."

  287.   
    MOTD's Jonathan Pearce at Goodison ParkEverton v Aston Villa (1500 GMT)

    "It's been a stunning week for both clubs. Just as Everton looked set to challenge for a top-five place, Liverpool thrash them 4-0. Just as Villa start to look fearful of the drop again with one win in 10, they beat West Brom 4-3 in a belter. Most people are going for Everton to bounce back. I think they're missing too many key men and back Villa for a draw."

  288.   
    Martin Fisher, Match of the Day commentator at KC StadiumHull v Tottenham (1500 GMT)

    "Tottenham's hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League took an almighty battering with Wednesday night's 5-1 drubbing at home to Manchester City. Despite their midweek humiliation, Spurs should make the trip north in confident mood as they look to make it six wins in a row on the road.

    "Hull City appear vulnerable and are currently enduring their worst spell of the campaign. They haven't scored or picked up a point in their first four games of 2014. Even a point from this one would represent a step in the right direction."

  289.   
    MOTD's Alistair Mann at Cardiff City stadiumCardiff v Norwich (15:00 GMT)

    "The hosts have yet to win a point since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge. And having recently been away at Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal, a home game with a fellow struggler takes on vital importance.

    "This clash is also the first of three home games for the Bluebirds in February and is the week before they take on Swansea in the fierce South Wales derby.

    "Six points ahead of Cardiff, a win for Norwich will give them genuine breathing space from the relegation mire."

  290. 13:36: 

    Sunderland fans in dreamland, Newcastle fans heartbroken, West Ham fans blowing bubbles, Swansea fans feeling deflated. At either of the games? Let us know your thoughts. Here's the musings of the Match of the Day commentators who are covering our 3pm kick-offs...

    Elliot Fulton: Talk about SAS, Carroll and Nolan's understanding of each other is unbelievable.

  292. 13:33:  
    MOTD's Guy Mowbray at St James' ParkHALF-TIME- Newcastle 0-2 Sunderland

    "You can hear the displeasure amongst the home fans. Sunderland are winning derby day hands down. Borini's penalty after Anita's clumsy challenge, then Johnson's sixth goal in three and a half Premier League games have given the Black Cats a 2-0 lead."

  293. 13:33:  
    MOTD's Steve Wilson at Upton ParkHALF-TIME- West Ham 2-0 Swansea

    "West Ham deservedly lead. Andy Carroll has made two for West Ham and Kevin Nolan has scored two. Swansea have not been at the races."

  294. 13:32: 
    GOAL- West Ham 2-0 Swansea - Kevin Nolan (45 mins)
    Kevin Nolan (right) celebrates scoring for West Ham

    Here's one from Big Sam's 19th century tactics book. A corner to the far post, Andy Carroll flicks it back across and Kevin Nolan heads home from six yards out. Top work, Hammers.

  295. 13:30: 
    Championship update- QPR 2-2 Burnley

    Burnley have been second best at the start of the second half but Sam Vokes volleys them level against the run of play.

    Michael Kightly's brilliant cross from the left is met at the near post as Vokes flicks home his fourth goal in five games.

  296. 13:30: 
    Newcastle 0-2 Sunderland

    Alan Pardew looks incredibly stressed on the touchline - probably because he realises his side have not won their last 72 league matches when they have been behind at half-time. Now would be a good time to change that, lads.
