As it happened

    It may be early days but Chelsea have certainly thrown down the gauntlet today. Can Liverpool and Arsenal display their credentials as title contenders when they take to the pitch tomorrow?

    Liverpool travel to Tottenham while Arsenal are at Leicester, who could hand a Premier League debut to Esteban Cambiasso.

    Plenty of reason to join us for more live text commentary tomorrow, so until then, goodbye.

    Sigmund Vestergaard: People are too easily carried away. Only three rounds in; let's see what it looks like after 15 before we jump on a bandwagon.

  3. 20:16: 

    Twenty-four goals scored in six games, which included last-minute equalisers and five goals in 10 minutes.

    The most entertaining league in the world? The Premier League has certainly made a strong claim for that title today.

    Everton 3-6 Chelsea

    Just watching Jose Mourinho speaking in his post-match news conference and he describes how he had his players training for 90 minutes on Wednesday to defend against free-kicks, having conceded from a set-piece today he says he may as well stay at home with his wife and kids next time. Classic Mourinho.

    Manager reaction- Everton 3-6 Chelsea
    Roberto Martrinez

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez, speaking to BBC Sport: "I can imagine it was a great game to watch from a neutral point of view but our point of view was that we started too slow.

    "But even then I felt we showed great character and great belief and I felt we were getting back into it, but every time we did we were dealt a sucker punch. Our defending was not as good as it should be. We need to make sure our good play gets a lot more support from having a more solid defensive display.

    "We should have protected Tim Howard a lot better. But we take responsibility as a team and in the same way promote all the good things we have. We have the experience and the know how. There were positives, Romelu Lukaku lasting along as he did and Samuel Eto'o arriving and having the impact he did."

  7. 19:51: 
    Manager reaction- Everton 3-6 Chelsea

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was wonderful for everyone at the stadium and watching television around the world - but not for me. We cannot make so many defensive mistakes. We want to improve as a team by keeping our defensive strength and quality and improving in other areas. Today we showed we are improving in other areas but not keeping the balance in defence.

    "The team likes to have the ball, that is very important but we need to keep our defensive balance and not commit mistakes. Wednesday afternoon we spent 90 minutes defending corners and free-kicks but today we conceded from a free-kick so I cannot be happy with the ridiculous goal we conceded.

    "There is 35 more games, three is nothing."

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez on Sky Sports: "The way we defended was soft. To concede two goals so quickly could have ruined us but we were magnificent in our response to that. There were one or two situations when we didn't defend as we should do but those are the small margins.

    "There are many positives for us. But we can't carry on conceding the goals we have, it is not natural and we must improve. But the way we kept bouncing back to get into the game will allow us to show our potential."

    Manager reaction- Everton 3-6 Chelsea

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho on Sky Sports: "If the salt and the pepper of football is goals then to have nine goals in a Premier League match is fantastic ingredients.

    "The two teams played fantastically well. I know Everton are a good offensive side and their movement is not easy to control but we concede three goals it is too much. All of them I can clearly identify mistakes and those who are involved but in the end we are killers in attack.

    "We come to this stadium and get three points so we are happy. Obviously my players did well. Diego Costa had three chances and he scored two goals. He is a good finisher and he gives us a lot.

    "Today I told my people that I have no news until the end of the game. We are trying since yesterday to get Loic Remy but I don't know the status. We have a fantastic doctor and I trust him completely. They will identify any problem."

    Player reaction- Everton 3-6 Chelsea

    Chelsea defender John Terry, speaking to Sky Sports: "The way we kept responding was excellent and something we did not have last year so that delights me more than anything.

    "At times we have dropped points against the lesser sides and we have not done well here the last few years so to come here and get the win and the manner of the performance is great for the team.

    "The belief has been there since day one. We have started very well and it is important because the boys go away in the international break and it was important we got the win today and we got it brilliantly. Defensively we might get a bit of a telling off from the manager!

    "I am fighting to stay and remain in this great team. It is down to me to keep fighting and hopefully keep playing well."

    Match of the Day- Running order

    You'll never guess which game is on first tonight...

    1. Everton v Chelsea, 2. Man City v Stoke, 3. Newcastle v Palace, 4. Swansea v WBA, 5. West Ham v Saints, 6. Burnley v Man U, 7. QPR v Sunderland.

  20. 19:26: 
    Everton 3-6 Chelsea

    And with that, Chelsea become the first away team to score six at Goodison Park since Arsenal won 6-1 on the opening day of the 2009-10 season.

    Jose Mourinho's side played some fantastic football at times and what a player Diego Costa looks. Very much displaying his Atletico Madrid form, rather than his Spain form. An old school striker who likes to get stuck in. Great to see.

    HITS THE WOODWORK- Everton 3-5 Chelsea

    This is simply a brilliant game! This time Kevin Mirallas flicks an effort from the middle of the area that Thibaut Courtois looks to get enough of a touch to push the ball on to his post. Breathtaking stuff.

    GOAL- Everton 3-5 Chelsea - Ramires (77 mins)

    Another goal! Chelsea respond with their first attack after Everton's goal as Ramires exchanges passes with Nemanja Matic before poking in at Tim Howard's near post.

    GOAL- Everton 3-4 Chelsea - Samuel Eto'o (76 mins)

    This game is utter madness! Everton are back to within one goal of Chelsea as Samuel Eto'o stoops to head in Leighton Baines's ball to score his first goal for the Toffees with his first touch. What drama!

  40. 19:01: 
    GOAL- Everton 2-4 Chelsea - Nemanja Matic (74 mins)

    Just as the Goodison Park crowd had roared on their side to get an equaliser, the away side have regained their two-goal lead as Nemanja Matic's low drive deflects off the boot of Phil Jagielka and beyond a wrong-footed Tim Howard for his first goal for Chelsea.

    A great time for Everton to make a change as Samuel Eto'o comes on for Aiden McGeady to face his former side. Goodison Park is bouncing now.

  44. 18:56: 
    GOAL- Everton 2-3 Chelsea - Steven Naismith (69 mins)

    A great response by Everton as Aiden McGeady races towards the Chelsea defence and slides a pass to put Steven Naismith clear and he duly despatches the ball into the far corner. Game back on!

    Steven Naismith celebrates scoring Everton's third goal
  45. 18:54: 
    GOAL- Everton 1-3 Chelsea - Seamus Coleman (OG 67 mins)

    Just as Everton seemed to be pressing it is Chelsea who grab a third and possibly put this game to bed. Eden Hazard embarks on a delightful run into the area from the left before his shot is deflected from a tight angle off Seamus Coleman.

  46. 18:53: 
    Everton 1-2 Chelsea

    You definitely get the sense there is another goal in this game as Romelu Lukaku almost gets on to a ball over the top, the offside flag is up but Gary Cahill is nevertheless back superbly to sweep away the danger and prevent the Everton striker from running through.

    Diego Costa

    Ope Alabi: At this rate, Diego Costa's yellow card tally might rival his goal tally at the end of the season.

  48. 18:48: 
    Everton 1-2 Chelsea

    It is then Everton's turn to attack as a free-kick is headed behind for a corner, which Kevin Mirallas swings in but the ball does not beat the first man and Chelsea clear.

  49. 18:47: 
    Everton 1-2 Chelsea

    Diego Costa needs to be careful as he looks to be getting easily riled by some strong challenges. He is still looking dangerous though as he holds the ball up superbly before poking a pass for Branislav Ivanovic to run on to, but his shot hits the side-netting.

  50. 18:43: 
    YELLOW CARD- Everton 1-2 Chelsea

    A coming together of Diego Costa and Seamus Coleman sees the former react angrily and he is subsequently booked.

  51. 18:41: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Everton 1-2 Chelsea

    Big, big save by Tim Howard as Cesc Fabregas unlocks the Everton defence with a stabbed through ball for Diego Costa to chase. The striker tries to bend the ball towards the far post but Howard sticks out a leg to poke behind for a corner, which John Terry then heads straight at the Everton keeper.

  52. 18:39: 
    Everton 1-2 Chelsea

    Sylvain Distin strays offside as an Everton free-kick is pinged into the area. His header was off target though.

  53. 18:38: 
    Everton 1-2 Chelsea

    A big smile on the face of Samuel Eto'o as he warms up on the edge of the pitch, chatting with a couple of his former team-mates at Chelsea as they jog past.

    Meanwhile, Everton have started this half very brightly with plenty of possession, although they are yet to really test the Chelsea defence.

  54. 18:37: 
    Everton 1-2 Chelsea
    Fernando Torres

    Safe to say Chelsea are not missing this man. Fernando Torres arrived in Milan earlier for his medical as he prepares for life in Serie A.

    Diego Costa has hit the ground running with three goals from his first three games as a Chelsea player. It took Torres 14 games to get his first for the Blues.

    Everton 1-2 Chelsea

    Everton fans can feel optimistic of a fight back in the second half - their side are far from being dominated in this game. In fact, they have had more of the ball and more shots than Chelsea.

    Should make for an interesting 45 minutes ahead.

  61. 18:23:  
    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at Goodison ParkEverton 1-2 Chelsea

    "That Kevin Mirallas goal means Everton go in with renewed hope at half-time but their fans are still unhappy with the part the officials played in both Chelsea's goals judging by the abuse directed at referee Jon Moss and his assistants as they left the pitch.

    "All to play for in the second half, though, especially if both teams continue in the same vein: Everton are throwing lots of men forward while Chelsea look very dangerous on the break."

    Poor from Phil Jagielka as he is robbed of possession by Nemanja Matic, who quickly sends Diego Costa clear but the linesman's flag is straight up as the Spain striker was just offside.

  67. 18:08: 
    Everton 0-2 Chelsea
    Romelu Lukaku

    Speaking of Romelu Lukaku, bar the one header against the crossbar, the big striker has barely been in this game as he finds himself well-marshalled by the Chelsea defence. The Blues have conceded just nine league goals in 2014, and it is easy to see why. Disciplined display.

    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at Goodison ParkEverton 0-2 Chelsea

    "The Everton fans are in better voice now after their side's improvement but the Chelsea supporters are still making a lot of noise, and seem to be enjoying dishing out some stick to their former striker Romelu Lukaku.

    "They started with a rather predictable chant of 'Chelsea reject' but then followed that up with the more cutting 'Fernando Torres, he's better than you.' That's got to hurt."

  69. 18:05: 
    Everton 0-2 Chelsea

    Willian gives the ball away to allow Everton to break and they do so at pace. Steven Naismith knocks the ball into the path of Kevin Mirrallas just outside the area and he attempts to curls the ball into the far corner but Thibaut Courtois is wise to it, quickly getting behind the ball to make the ultimately comfortable save.

  70. 18:00: 
    Everton 0-2 Chelsea

    Good work from Sylvain Distin prevents a Cesc Fabregas shot from possibly creeping in. The Chelsea midfielder pounces on a loose ball, runs across the edge of the area and sidefoots a low effort towards the far post, but Distin's boot deflects it wide.

  71. 17:58: 
    Everton 0-2 Chelsea
    Action picture from Everton v Chelsea

    A good spell again from Everton as they pass the ball around nicely before Aiden McGeady shoots low from outside the area and into a crowd of players. Chelsea defender Branisalv Ivanovic sticks out a boot to send the ball over his own bar, but it could have gone anywhere.

  72. 17:55: 
    Everton 0-2 Chelsea

    Chelsea win a free-kick when Diego Costa's pass is short for Willian, who is fouled by Gareth Barry as they both dive in for the 50-50. Cesc Fabregas takes the set-piece, sending it towards the far post but Tim Howard claims confidently.

  73. 17:50:

    Gareth Barry's lofted ball into the area is headed away before Steven Naismith's low drive is blocked by Gary Cahill. Chelsea need to be careful of slipping into complacency because Everton look dangerous at the moment.

    Manager reaction- Newcastle 3-3 Crystal Palace

    Newcastle boss Alan Pardew: "We're very lucky to get Rolando Aarons through the system and I'm sure he'll get games because he's forced his way into my thinking. I've been here four years and were starting to see one or two coming though.

    "But I'm disappointed today because we should have had three points. Perhaps we got wrapped up in the crowd trying to get a fourth and it's frustrating to concede. We feel we should have won by now because we've played some good stuff but we weren't as tight defensively today as we have been and Palace caused up problems in wide areas."

    Out wander the Everton and Chelsea teams, with all 22 players wearing black armbands in memory of Chelsea vice-president Lord Attenborough, who died last week. Chelsea are out in their all-yellow away kits.

    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at Goodison ParkEverton v Chelsea (17:30 BST)

    "New Everton striker Samuel Eto'o had a quick chat with his old Chelsea team-mate Petr Cech during the warm-up and he has made a lot of new friends at Goodison Park already judging by the reception he got when his name was read out by the stadium announcer.

    "This ground is nothing new to him, though. Eto'o actually made his Chelsea debut here in September last year and he will be hoping for a similar outcome as he prepares to make his Everton bow - the Toffees won that game 1-0."

    Sam Allardyce

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "We weren't good enough. Southampton taught us a lesson, we weren't sharp enough and didn't retain the ball as well as they did, close down as well as they did and gifted them two goals. As much as they were in control and on top of the game we've lost two very stupid goals from set-pieces.

    "The big problem I had with the corner [for the second goal] was that it was a goal-kick of course. I've had a look at it on the laptop and can the referee see it? Was he blocked and why didn't he make the right decision? Having looked at it from Mike Dean's position he's got it horribly wrong when we don't need it to go against us."

    Plenty of reaction rolling in from this afternoon's results so far...

    Gus Poyet

    Sunderland boss Gus Poyet: "Overall I was quite happy with the performance. We had a clear chance to put the ball in the net. But there was practically nothing between the teams and for much of the game we were in control. There were two or three situations where we didn't make the right decision. It was the cutting edge in the latter third.

    "Corners and set-plays can make the difference. It is not a nice way to lose the game but hopefully we will learn. We are working to bring players in but until it is concrete I prefer not to comment."

    "Samuel Eto'o is ready. The emotional state could help him today, he will be full of adrenaline. He is not ready to play 90 minutes but he is a joy to have around the place. "

    Ronald Koeman

    Southampton manager Ronald Koeman: "After they went 1-0 up it was difficult with the second ball because they played the long ball and long throw ins. We knew that but we didn't dominate it and luckily it was 1-1 near half-time and that gave us belief to play and play to win. That's what I liked in the second half - we played with pressing, deserved to win and scored some great goals.

    "Morgan Schneiderlin is a great player and it's normal that we like to keep that kind of player in our squad. He was wonderful in midfield. He has great quality and I enjoyed it.

    "We said that from the beginning [that Schneiderlin will not be leaving] and we'll keep that until the end [of the transfer window]."

    But will it be a former Chelsea player who grabs the headlines today? Romelu Lukaku starting and Samuel Eto'o on the bench, both most likely keen to prove a point against their old side.

    Meanwhile, summer signing Danny Hylton scored a brace as Oxford United claimed their first point of the season with a 3-3 draw against Dagenham at the Kassam Stadium.

    Manager reaction- QPR 1-0 Sunderland

    QPR boss Harry Redknapp: "When you're sitting there with no points after two games you need to get a win and I'm delighted with the way we played. We started way behind everyone else. We brought players in very late and they didn't have time to settle and that showed. Even today I was worried. But I thought we came on an awful lot today.

    "It is not about systems, it is about players. And we worked hard today and if you do that you can win football matches.

    (On Loic Remy) "I didn't see it coming, maybe I'm naive. I was hoping he would be here because he is important to us. He didn't refuse to play. We picked the team and he was in it but I had to change it at the last minute. To be fair to him his head would not be right and I needed 11 whose heads would be right."

    (On transfers) "We are looking around. We have bought some good players but we have some more irons in the fire. Lassana (Diarra) has signed and I'm delighted to have him. I had him at Portsmouth and he is a terrific player."

    An 83rd-minute equaliser from forward Stephen Dobbie preserved Fleetwood's unbeaten record in the league this season as Graham Alexander's side snatched a 1-1 draw at home to Leyton Orient. However, a point was not enough to preserve top spot in League One as Peterborough took full advantage of their slip, grabbing a 3-1 win at Colchester to claim pole position.

    Championship update

    Fulham moved off the foot of the Championship as Felix Magath's side followed up a midweek League Cup win with a 1-1 draw at home to Cardiff to earn their first point of the season. Blackpool replaced them at the bottom after slipping to their fifth straight defeat - losing 2-1 to a Millwall side led by their former manager Ian Holloway.

    Meanwhile, Leeds, who sacked head coach Dave Hockaday this week, started life under caretaker manager Neil Redfearn with a 1-0 win against Bolton, thanks to Stephen Warnock's 17th-minute strike.

    At the top, second-place Watford were twice pegged back by Huddersfield before goals from Keith Andrews and a second from Almen Abdi secured a 4-2 win for the 10 men, who keep the pressure on league-leaders Nottingham Forest.

    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at Goodison ParkEverton v Chelsea (17:30 BST)

    "It looks like the battle of the blues will be held under grey skies at an overcast Goodison Park, where an Everton side who have drawn their first two games of the season meet a Chelsea side who have won both of theirs.

    "Today's focus will be on the strikers: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be up against two of the four frontmen he has discarded this summer - Romelu Lukaku starts for the Toffees, and Samuel Eto'o is on the bench - while one of those he bought in - Diego Costa - has recovered from a hamstring injury to lead the visitors' attack."

    He has it all to do, but gets away from Aleksander Kolarov, is too strong for Vincent Kompany and then slips a low shot between the legs of Joe Hart.

    Jason Roberts on Crystal Palace: "Jason Puncheon has been one of their best players if you look at his form. It's not a surprise for him to score a goal today. Fabricio Coloccini has the chance to get tighter though. A good goal, but defensively Newcastle will be disappointed."

    It's a good day for the struggling clubs in the Championship. Leeds sacked Dave Hockaday this week but have started life under caretaker manager Neil Redfearn well, with Stephen Warnock firing his side into a 1-0 lead against Bolton. Tim Hoogland's first-half goal has put struggling Fulham on course for their first league win of the season - they lead Cardiff 1-0 at Craven Cottage.

    At the top, second-place Watford lead Huddersfield 1-0, thanks to Troy Deeney's effort, as they look to keep the pressure on leaders Nottingham Forest, who beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 earlier in the day.

    Transfer speculation ahoy!

    Radamel Falcao was dropped at the last minute from Monaco's matchday squad for this aftenoon's Ligue 1 clash with Lille amid mounting speculation that the Colombian is on his way out.

    Falcao started and scored the winning goal against Nantes last weekend and had been expected to start for Leonardo Jardim's team at the Stade Louis II. He was named in the squad, but took no part in the warm-up and was not even included among the substitutes.

    The former Atletico Madrid striker has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid on a season-long loan, but the reigning European champions will have to move quickly with the transfer window closing on Monday.

    Wayne Routledge is in fine fettle this afternoon and he is a whisker away from adding a third when a free-kick is kneed away by Craig Dawson, but only as far as Routledge unmarked inside the area but he smashes an effort just wide.

  206. 15:45: 
    GOAL- West Ham 1-1 Southampton - Morgan Schneiderlin (45 mins)

    The man who wanted away earlier in the summer levels things up! Lovely finish too from Morgan Schneiderlin. Big Sam will do his nut about the defending though as a Dusan Tadic free-kick is allowed to clear everyone in the goalmouth and reach the Frenchman at the back post. His first effort is well blocked but he curls the second effort brilliantly into the top corner.

    QPR are showing flashes of ingenuity around the Sunderland box as they probe for their first goal of the season. Junior Hoilett turns his marker and then fires a shot on goal but Vito Mannone is well-placed to save.

  213. 15:37: 
    GOAL- Newcastle 1-1 Crystal Palace - Daryl Janmaat (37 mins)

    Scrappy stuff but Newcastle won't care as they are level shortly before the break. A bit of pinball inside the Crystal Palace area as the away side can't clear and Daryl Janmaat fires in from the centre of the box.

    Fraser Forster was the hero a few moments ago but he's undone from range this time. Morgan Schneiderlin is robbed of the ball midway inside his own half, Mark Noble picks up the pieces and hammers in a shot which is deflected past the former Celtic keeper.

    Could Foster have done better there? Possibly.

Angola international Igor Vetokele has given fifth-placed Charlton the advantage away at Brighton.

    Newcastle still huffing and puffing without ever looking like blowing Palace's house down at St James' Park. Alan Pardew's side are enjoying plenty of possession but are struggling to cleave open a well-organised visiting defence.

  227. 15:23: 
    GOAL- Swansea City 2-0 West Bromwich Albion - Wayne Routledge (24 mins)

    A beautiful, beautiful goal as Swansea double the lead. Craig Dawson's clearing header is straight to Wayne Routledge on the edge of the area and he hits a fine volley into the back of the net. Tough now for the Baggies.

  230. 15:19: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Man City 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke want a penalty - and it's a decent shout too! Mame Biram Diouf gets past Aleksander Kolarov once, and then goes for a second turn and goes to ground. Was there much contact there? Tough to say.

  231. 15:19:

    Newcastle are enjoying plenty of possession as they look to respond to Dwight Gayle's early opener but are falling short in the final third. Fabricio Coloccini finds Siem de Jong inside the box, but he can't get his shot off in time and instead the ball is put behind for a corner, which comes to nothing.

  239. 15:12:

    City playing some lovely stuff here, really popping the ball around at high pace and using the width well too. Yaya Toure gets on the end of a flowing move but can't generate enough power in his header.

    Swansea City 1-0 West Bromwich Albion

    Swansea are well on top at the moment and Wilfried Bony almost capitalises on a fortuitous deflection off a defender as he picks up the ball just outside the area, shrugs off a West Brom player but lifts his shot over the bar.

    Louis van Gaal stays in his seat as the full-time whistle goes. Another failure to pick up three points for United, a fine result for Burnley.

    Danny Welbeck wants a corner - and gets a goal kick. That sums up United's day.

    Jimmy Armfield, BBC Radio 5 live at Turf MoorBurnley 0-0 Manchester United

    "United have had a lot of possession in the last 20 minutes, but have not done anything with it. Van Gaal will have noted all this down, there's not been enough happening with it."

    INJURY TIME- Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    We have FOUR MINUTES added on, United get the ball out wide to Antonio Valencia but his delivery is poor again.

    INJURY TIME- Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    Can Burnley now nick this? Jason Shackell finds space at the other end and flicks a header back across goal - and there's nobody there to turn it home! Drama at both ends.

    Jimmy Armfield, BBC Radio 5 live at Turf MoorBurnley 0-0 Manchester United

    "I thought at first it definitely caught him but he turned sideways on and it struck him under the elbow. He put his elbow up, but all the United fans behind that goal were screaming for the penalty."

    PENALTY APPEAL- Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    BIG penalty shout!

    Ashley Young has a shot charged down by Burnley sub Ashley Barnes, he turns his back on the shot and it hits his outstretched arm - that's two decent claims Young has had waved away by referee Chris Foy today...

    Andy R, Northolt: Sounds like an intriguing early season relegation battle at Turf Moor...

    SUBSTITUTION- Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    Manchester United could do without any more injuries - but it looks like they have one as Juan Mata hobbles off to be replaced by Adnan Januzaj.

    FINAL FIVE- Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    The last five minutes then. Manchester United haven't had a shot on target for 27 minutes. They need one if they are going to pinch this...

    Ben - Cobham: To be fair to Kluivert he would have been mad to follow LVG to United. Ross County currently have much more potential.

  287. 14:25: 
    Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    Manchester United may be on the brink of not winning any of their first three league matches of the season for the first time since 2007, but it's worth remembering that they ended up winning the Premier League and the Champions League that season...

    Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    One mistake, one lapse of concentration could make the difference in the final stages. There's not the wave of pressure you may expect from Manchester United but a gentle rise, as Ashley Young beats his man around the outside, it's played back to Juan Mata and he shovels a shot over the crossbar.

    Jimmy Armfield, BBC Radio 5 live at Turf MoorBurnley 0-0 Manchester United

    "Burnley have to learn to make this step up, and it's harder for the forward players. Premier League defences are much harder to break down."

    Vinny Person: 0-0 would be a blinding result for United.

    Mike Ash: Looks like United should have signed Agger for cheap, at least he provides some solidity at the back! Woeful back three!

  292. 14:19: 
    CLOSE!- Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    That is a chance! Wayne Rooney finds space at the far post to meet an inswinging corner but he can't steer his header on target. Just over 10 minutes remain.

    Di Maria

    Tackling is not his game.

    The £60m man Angel Di Maria had a decent - if unspectacular - debut.

    Team News- Newcastle United v Crystal Palace (15:00 BST)

    Alan Pardew makes four changes to the Newcastle side that won 1-0 at Gillingham in the Capital One Cup. Mike Williamson, Remy Cabella, England new boy Jack Colback and Yoan Gouffran are restored in place of Steven Taylor, Gabriel Obertan, Mehdi Abeid and Ronaldo Aarons.

    The first XI of Neil Warnock's second stint in charge of Crystal Palace contains just three of the players who earned a 3-0 win at Walsall in midweek. Dwight Gayle is retained after his hat trick, while Adrian Mariappa and Damien Delaney also keep their places.

    Wilfried Zaha is on the bench after returning to Selhurst Park on loan from Manchester United but Jason Puncheon is included despite being fined £15,000 by the FA for comments on Twitter after taking exception to criticism from Warnock about a penalty miss against Tottenham.

    Newcastle XI Krul, Janmaat, Coloccini, Williamson, Haidara, Colback, Sissoko, Cabella, De Jong, Gouffran, Riviere.

    Crystal Palace XI Speroni, Mariappa, Dann, Delaney, Kelly, Puncheon, Jedinak, Ward, Bolasie, Chamakh, Gayle

    Team news- Swansea City v West Bromwich Albion (15:00 BST)

    After making changes for the Capital One Cup win over Rotherham, Swansea manager Garry Monk reverts to the side which beat Burnley 1-0 last Saturday. Argentina defender Federico Fernandez and on-loan Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Carroll must wait to make their Premier League debuts off the bench. There are two changes to the West Brom side which drew against Sunderland a week ago, with Jason Davidson replacing Sebastien Pocognoli and Brown Ideye making his first league start, replacing Victor Anichebe.

    Swansea XI: Fabianski, Rangel, Amat, Williams, Taylor, Ki, Shelvey, Dyer, Sigurdsson, Routledge, Bony.

    West Brom XI: Foster, Wisdom, Dawson, Olsson, Davidson, Gardner, Mulumbu, Berahino, Dorrans, Brunt, Ideye.

    Kluivert for Ross County?
    Patrick Kluivert

    BBC Scotland's Liam McLeod breaks the news that former Barcelona striker Patrick Kluivert is a contender for the Ross County managerial job.

    Sensational news.

    Kluivert, 38, was assistant to Louis van Gaal at the 2014 World Cup as the Netherlands finished third.

    And he is not the only former Barcelona candidate for the job, as ex-youth coach Sergio Lobera is also in the running.

  297. 14:14: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Burnley 0-0 Manchester United

    Robin van Persie is off - and Danny Welbeck is on in his place. Is this another man on his way out of Old Trafford?

    Paul Gourley: Oh we are bound to win now Anderson is coming on - Dear oh dear!

    Jeff Kraus: Anderson is the answer? Ryan Giggs would provide a better impact on this game.

    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Turf MoorBurnley 0-0 Manchester United

    "Manchester United's fans behind the goal were vocal in their demands for the introduction of Adnan Januzaj - they have got Anderson instead. Looked like the Argentine Di Maria had a touch of cramp."
