It never rains, but it pours QPR fans. Not only did your side suffer a 90th-minute defeat, but your star striker looks to be injured and there are also

reports that defender Richard Dunne suffered a cruciate ligament injury today.

Defoe for England?

Swansea 1-1 Sunderland

Here's one from left-field. Sunderland manager Gus Poyet is touting Jermain Defoe for England...

"When you pick strikers you pick those in form and scoring goals," Poyet said. "We saw today Harry Kane at Spurs and it's an obvious choice, but Jermain has a chance if Wayne Rooney plays in midfield.

"But that's up to Roy (Hodgson) to decide. I respect the manager of the national team and the only thing the player can do is perform."

Draw specialists

Swansea 1-1 Sunderland

Sunderland have drawn exactly 50% of their Premier League games this season - 12 out of 24. It's working so far though, with Gus Poyet's side 14th in the table after today.

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet: "It was a shame at the end but we were very good in the first half and that can give us the confidence to keep getting results."

On goal-scorer Jermain Defoe: "It's something we were missing, and something he will keep doing because he is Jermain Defoe.

"I am sure that now other teams are going to have to look at us in a different way."

Swansea manager Garry Monk: "We did more than enough to score us the goals and win us the game, but we're disappointed we didn't come away with all three.

On Ki's disallowed goal: "It's not conclusive, I was told his head was offside but I'm not sure how that can be right.

"The linesman's flag was up straight away so we just have to go with it."

DR Congo finish third at Africa Cup of Nations

DR Congo 0-0 Equatorial Guinea (4-3 penalties)

DR Congo

BBC Africa's Nick Cavell at Malabo: "The third-place game at the Malabo stadium passed off without any sign of a repeat of the problems that marred Thursday's semi-final at the same venue.

"Before kick-off there were a lot more police visible around the stadium complex and 30 minutes before kick-off there only around 200 fans in the stadium. The number slowly increased to between 3000 and 4000 during the first-half and they did their best to lift the atmosphere.

"The black and yellow helicopter that tried to intimidate the fans on Thursday was here again but thankfully much higher above the stadium. Those fans who did come were vociferous in their support of an Equatorial Guinea side who seemed calmer and more composed on the pitch and created more chances. And even in losing the crowd didn't show the same anger as on Thursday and instead showed massive appreciation for their heroes who have defied the odds to finish fourth."

Wage calculator: Global footballers v you

Did you know Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli's yearly salary is equivalent to the cost of 64,010 Liverpool replica shirts with 'Balotelli' printed on the back. And Balotelli earns 82 times more than England women's captain Steph Houghton, who is reportedly on £50,000 a year.

Global football stars earn some of the highest wages in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo's contract at Real Madrid earns him around €350,000 (£265,000) each week. But how much do you get paid compared with a top footballer? Use our calculator - part of the BBC's A Richer World season -

QPR caretaker-manager Chris Ramsey: "If I'm honest, I felt we rode our luck a bit in the first half. But the defeat was very difficult to take.

"It gives a lot of hope to the owners and fans to see that the players are trying their best to keep us in the division. We had some good spells of play, but we really need to tighten up on the quality of our passing and our creativity in the final third.

"Myself and Kevin Bond will take the team again at Sunderland on Tuesday."

How's stat?!

Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea

  • Aston Villa scored their first Premier League goal in 659 minutes. It was the fourth worst run without a goal in Premier League history.
  • Jose Mourinho has won his first Premier League game at Villa Park (D3 L2). The only Premier League ground he hasn't won at are the Emirates and St James Park.
  • The Blues have lost just two of their last 16 Premier League away games (W10 D4 L2).
  • Aston Villa have won just one of their last 10 Premier League games at Villa Park (W1 D4 L5).

Fair enough to get your team-mates in for a picture after going seven points

clear at the top of the table, but not sure why Branislav Ivanovic looks so glum? He did score the winner after all...

Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace

I don't want to add to your anxiety Leicester fans, but these stats sum it all up really:

  • The Foxes have won just one of their last nine Premier League home games (W1 D2 L6).
  • Nigel Pearson's side have netted just three goals in their last eight home Premier League games.
  • Leicester City have won none of their last 17 Premier League matches against London clubs (W0 D5 L12).

Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace

Former Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin

Final Score

"Leicester are the only team in the Premier League that have humiliated Manchester United and they are bottom. It just doesn't make sense. But you look at their next game away to Arsenal in midweek and you do think they will get something. They are capable of getting a point if they all play to their potential."

Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace

Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

Final Score

"Leicester have lacked cutting edge all season, with the exception of that freak game against Manchester United, which was a one off. They say the table doesn't lie and I don't think it does because they have been struggling to score goals since that game. United did not take them seriously, which is perhaps why they were so heavily beaten in that early-season match, and then when other teams saw what Leicester did, other teams did start to take them seriously, which has not worked in their favour."

Ronald Koeman

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman, speaking to BBC Sport: "I think we played well. We played good football and we had the best chances in the game.

"We were maybe lucky that Fraser Forster made that great save 10 minutes before the end, but I think the better team won today.

"Sadio Mane was very good, but Eljero Elia was as well. We spoke about exploiting the space behind QPR's defenders, and I think we did that well, and created some good chances before Sadio scored the winner."

Mark Schwarzer

Leicester City goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer: "I thought we were the dominant side, but didn't take our chances.

"We're not missing chances through lack of effort. Maybe it's that extra little bit of confidence and pressure.

"Today showed we still have the fight, we were just missing that bit of luck."

'City blew it'

Final Score

James Milner bends a free kick

"Last week Manchester City did very well against a very good Chelsea side. This week, they blew it. Up until the free-kick from James Milner that snatched a point at the death Hull deserved the victory, and I thought they were going to get all three points. Hull will be devastated but to be fair to City, they got something out of it. However, they are now seven points behind Chelsea."

QPR 0-1 Southampton

Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

Final Score

"John Motson says there is a relegation aura around Loftus Road and he should know because he has been to enough matches. We have all said QPR must win their home games, and they haven't done again today. They are without a permanent manager, and there are a lot of questions that need to be asked. They need to get the answers right."

Alan Pardew

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: "I think the changes at half-time helped us, because Brede Hangeland came on and was a colossus at the back and he was significant for the goal.

"We should have seen the game out more comfortably. Leicester City have good players, their wide players certainly caused us problems.

"Nigel Pearson will be disappointed not get something but it was a good away performance from us."

Final Score

"When you look at the margins at the bottom of the table, you wonder what do Crystal Palace need to stay up? I can tell you it is not 26 points I can assure you of that. It will be closer to 36 points. There is a lot of football still to play, and if I was Burnley or Aston Villa I am thinking I am chasing them."

Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley: "It is massive to beat the teams around us. We knew it would be difficult, it's a big three points.

Nigel Pearson

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson: "It was a game that we had chances in, and to come away with nothing is quite tough for us. I don't think they caused us problems.

"We're not taking chances. They didn't have too much in terms of creativity. It's disappointing because we had plenty of good situations. We are talking about the same things again.

"It's about us unable to turn positive displays into results. It's frustrating we can't turn performances into results."

Paul Lambert

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert, speaking to BBC Sport: "I have mixed emotions because I thought we deserved something from the game, we played really well. In the second half it looked like only one team was going to get a win, but we conceded a really unfortunate goal.

"Even last week we had big chances to score. Carles Gil has been a revelation for us, he has been getting better every game. I have to make a decision about where I think we can hurt teams, Gabby Agbonlahor was excellent and his speed caused Chelsea problems. He was a threat, I knew he could not keep it up all the way afterwards, and that is why I changed things.

"We have top players. Our season will not be defined with what happened against Arsenal and Chelsea, it is about from now on in.

On throwing his coat into his dugout in the first half, and possibly tension with the opposite dugout: "You are probably better asking their assistant to be fair. No problem with Jose, whatsoever."

Everton v Liverpool (17:30 GMT)

Ex-Everton winger Ronny Goodlass, BBC Radio Merseyside

"Liverpool dominate through retaining the ball, so that is something Everton will have to combat. But Liverpool's back three are vulnerable - Skrtl can look awful and Can is a midfield player. So get at that back line and they can be beaten. Everton need to play aggressively in front of this full house - they need to get ball to the likes of Lukaku in order to put pressure on Liverpool."

League Two review

Shrewsbury Town lost top spot but maintained their unbeaten home record as Tyrone Barnett's late strike secured a 1-1 draw against Southend, who had led through Jack Payne's 54th minute goal.

Burton Albion supplanted the Shrews, who slip to third after second-placed Wycombe beat Cambridge 1-0, at the top of the table as goals from Stuart Beavon, Adam McGurk and Phil Edwards secured a 3-1 win over Cheltenham Town - Albion's first away victory under manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Northampton boss Chris Wilder won manager of the month on Friday and his side continued their impressive form with a 2-1 win over Morecombe to move up to 11th place. Joel Byrom's first minute goal for the hosts was cancelled out by Jamie Devitt's strike before Marc Richards secured the points.
