That's all folks

That is all from us for today's football, folks. We'll back for tomorrow's action. Thank you and goodnight.

Tomorrow's action

Manchester City v Chelsea

MOTD's Guy Mowbray:  "Last season's corresponding fixture came too soon to be a blockbuster, and this being even earlier feels something of a waste.

"On last weekend's displays, City are favourites. Their performance at West Brom was magnificent and Vincent Kompany's goal celebrationsand post-match words outlined a point to prove to those who've written them out of title contention. Some will have already changed their minds!

"Overshadowed by 'medicgate', Chelsea were a level down from their best against Swansea. They'll have to be better to get the point Jose Mourinho would gladly take here. If they don't, he might need a doctor."

Tomorrow's action

Crystal Palace v Arsenal

MOTD's Jonathan Pearce:  "Arsenal haven't lost their opening two league games since the first ever Premier League season 23 years ago. They bounced back to win the FA Cup and League Cup that season.

"But a defeat at Selhurst where they're unbeaten in 12 visits would rock the club to its core. They could almost kiss goodbye to any title dream.

"Palace have pace in wide areas to hurt an Arsenal side which was below par against West Ham, although they had no fortune.

"They always seem to have their share in this game though, and if the real Arsenal turn up they should have too much for Palace. If they go there half-baked, they could lose again."

Tomorrow's action

There are two Premier League games tomorrow and they promise to be pretty damn good. First up is Crystal Palace v Arsenal at 13:30 BST, followed by Manchester City v Chelsea at 16:00. See. I told you.

Tottenham 2-2 Stoke

Lawro's predictions

So, how did Lawro do in his predictions this week? He went for wins for Sunderland, Tottenham and West Brom and Swansea to draw with Newcastle. OK, not so great then. But he did back Leicester to win at West Ham.

Championship latest

QPR 1-0 Cardiff

It is half-time at Loftus Road and QPR lead 1-0 against Cardiff. They have Clint Hill's header from a corner to thank for that. Good old Clint Hill, where would the Super Hoops be if they couldn't wheel him out every other season for a Championship campaign after all their big-money signings have left post-relegation?

Premier League recap

So, to recap (so you know what you're getting on MOTD tonight), Norwich claimed their first Premier League win under Alex Neil with a 3-1 victory at Sunderland, whose fans will be worried. Very worried. Ditto their local rivals Newcastle, who were beaten 2-0 at Swansea after having a man sent off. 

Tottenham chucked away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with a spirited Stoke and West Brom nullified Watford to claim a goalless draw at Vicarage Road.

Everton thumped Southampton 3-0 and Leicester made it two wins out of two to beat West Ham and go top of the table. Yep, it is the second week of the Premier League and Leicester are top. All hail the Tinkerman!

No go Gayle

#BristolCity boss Steve Cotterill tells @bbcbristolsport Dwight Gayle will not be joining the club. "We have to move on". Has other targets.

Championship transfer update

Speaking of the Championship, we have some breaking news on the transfer front...

Championship update

QPR 1-0 Cardiff

There is no late Premier League game this evening but there is one in the Championship, featuring two teams who have recently played in the top flight. At Loftus Road, QPR have just taken the lead against Cardiff through Clint Hill's header from a corner.

Manager reaction

Tottenham 2-2 Stoke

Mark Hughes to BBC Sport: “After the break we understood what we needed to do better, talked about it in the break and came out with more resolve. Our hard yards were good and we started to affect the game. 

"The substitutions helped us, we just started to retain the ball in the final third and started to create chances. If the game had gone a little bit longer who knows we might have been greedy and claimed two more points.

" Stephen Ireland’s a very good player. I know the quality that he has. Since he’s come to Stoke he probably hasn’t had the opportunity he think he deserves but he knows the respect I have for him. We’re strong this year, we’ll be ok. 

"We just need to manage games better than we did in the first half and if we do that we’ll do well. The spirit has been great. The key is that we’re bringing good players in and good guys as well.”

Southampton 0-3 Everton

Clear defeat today! Performance 1half wasn't good! Learning about mistakes we did today! #WeMarchOn

Manager reaction

West Ham 1-2 Leicester

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic speaking to BBC Sport: "It is a bad result of course after a good start. We didn't play good enough in the first half. We started well but after that we were second best. 

"We lost the game in the first half. Two-nil down is very difficult to come back from. We are very disappointed.

On substituting Reece Oxford at half-time:  "It was not that he played worse than the rest of the team. He played well but our passing was really slow in the first half and with Pedro we were much quicker in tempo.

"We scored a gaol early enough to play our normal game but with more aggression. We had a great chance for the equaliser through Diafra Sakho, I was expecting us to score a second, but we didn't.

On Adrian's sending off:  "Initially I thought it was not a red card but then I saw the replay and it is dangerous play. It was obvious Adrian didn't mean to cause harm. I am more than sure it was not deliberate. He was just following the ball and was unlucky."

Manager reaction

Watford 0-0 West Brom

Watford manager Quique Flores to BBC Sport: "I am happy with the performance of the team. We planned for the match and it was difficult to play against West Brom. We tried to find space to attack and created chances. West Brom are solid at the back. We were close to getting a good result. 

"Most important is that the fans are happy. We are working like a club, like a family.

"The players feel good and are full of confidence. They are competitive in the matches."

Manager reaction

Swansea City 2-0 Newcastle United

Newcastle manager Steve McClaren: "We didn't learn a lot apart from it is difficult to win with 10 men. 

"A little bit of naivety has cost us, 10 men and your backs are against the wall. We have to dust ourselves down and concentrate on the Manchester United game next week.

"I'm not too sure whether it was a second booking but we knew he would be a danger and unfortunately we fell into the trap."

Sunderland 1-3 Norwich

Huge 3 points perfect away performance today lads were different class!!! #ncfc #greatawaysupport

Player reaction

Tottenham 2-2 Stoke

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen to BBC Sport: “We probably saw ourselves winning but in the end we didn’t. We showed a lot of confidence the first half. We played really well the first 30 minutes, but slowed down. Everyone was disappointed and don’t get how you can be 2-0 up and end up with a draw.”

Player reaction

Sunderland 1-3 Norwich

Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole on BBC Sport:  "We are conceding goals out of nothing and it is very disappointing. Things have to change quick and we have a lot of hard work ahead. It is up to the players, manager and staff to kick on and fight. We have to look to improve."

Final Score

There is something wrong at Sunderland football club. You go back to former managers Steve Bruce, Roy Keane, Martin O'Neill, Paolo Di Canio...

Player reaction

West Ham 1-2 Leicester

West Ham defender Carl Jenkinson, speaking to BBC Sport: "In the first 10 minutes we started well but after that it was an uphill battle. I didn't think they really took control of the game, they were decisive with their finishing but I would not say they outplayed us. It is frustrating, we got one back and I thought we would get another but it didn't land for us.

"I thought the red card was a bit harsh, it was a high foot but I am sure it was accidental. I ended up in goal but fortunately I didn't have too much to do."

Player reaction

Watford 0-0 West Brom

West Brom defender Jonas Olsson on Sky Sports: "Everyone who watched the game saw that there was not much in it. Both teams wanted a result. We were solid and stuck to our game plan and had a few chances in the second half. In the end, it is a good point for us."

Swansea 2-0 Newcastle

Garth Crooks

Final Score

Former Newcastle manager Alan Pardew had them playing the best they could play. Maybe we need to give new boss Steve McClaren more time. He wants to bring in English players, but it will cost him.

Manager reaction

Tottenham 2-2 Stoke

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino to BBC Sport: “In football it’s never closed until the final whistle. It’s disappointing. The team played very well for 70 minutes and the penalty changed the game a little bit. 

"We need to be optimistic, look forward and keep working. From my position it was difficult to see what happened, I don’t know if it was a penalty or not, but until this moment we played really well and created chances.”

Manager reaction

Tottenham 2-2 Stoke

Stoke boss Mark Hughes to Sky Sports: “First half it wasn’t what we were looking for, we allowed Spurs a little bit too much time, too much space, and played into their hands. I’m disappointed with both goals, really. 

"At 2-0 it was a big task for us but we understood what we needed to do, disrupt their rhythm, and do the hard yards. I think the substitutions helped, we got more craft on later in the game and that opened things up. We got our reward and we were by far the better team in the second half. 

"I’ve got a lot of good players who are disappointed when I don’t pick them. We were able to bring good quality on that affect the game. I’m delighted with the second-half performance, it wasn’t a complete 90-minute performance, but delighted to take the point.”    

Manager reaction

Sunderland 1-3 Norwich

Norwich boss Alex Neill on BBC Sport: "I thought it was very good, similar to last week in that we dominated the game. 

"We had the cutting edge this time though. "The first goal is crucial and we got it and didn't look back. I have a great group, they work hard and work as a team."

Swansea 2-0 Newcastle

Garth Crooks

Final Score

They produce players all the time. Garry Monk's selection of players is spot on. If he continues like this then if Everton boss Roberto Martinez struggles then he's the perfect choice.

Manager reaction

Sunderland 1-3 Norwich

Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat on BBC Sport: "Two games two defeats we did not expect. With all respect to Norwich, we must get the result but they were the better side in everything. 

"We have to discuss with the players how we go on. It was the same in pre-season and you hoped it would change but it is not changing. Myself as well, I am responsible for that, no doubt. "

Together we have to find out if we can find the solution. Expectation we high, we have to find the reason otherwise we have no chance. There were many good players, Yann showed he is a good player. We have to find out the reason, they can talk and I can talk."

Manager reaction

Swansea City 2-0 Newcastle United

Swansea manager Garry Monk: "We dominated the whole game from start to finish. When the red card does come it impacts on the dynamic of the other team more and they sat back after that.

"We were very professional in the second half and made sure we won the game with a clean sheet. 

"We started well, got a fantastic goal. We were very professional after the sending off and we could have had more goals."

Manager reaction

Watford 0-0 West Brom

West Brom manager Tony Pulis:  "We talked about Watford starting at a high pace and we looked like it was surprise. But we restricted them to few chances. The changes made a bit of a difference. This is there cup final in a lot of respects. It was a wonderful atmosphere."

On Saido Berahino's late miss: "It was a good chance and he will be disappointed. But he is a good player."

On transfers: "We are hoping to do a lot of business in the next few weeks, with people coming in and going. It is a period of transition and hopefully it will gel properly and we can move forward."

Martin Keown

Final Score

Stoke were dead and buried at half-time, but when Mark Hughes is in charge of a team he never gives up. Stoke got what they deserved - they really battled.

Manager reaction

West Ham 1-2 Leicester

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri, speaking to BBC Sport: "All the match was good for us. We are playing well. All the players play like a team, they play with the ball on the ground and it is important to increase our stamina and fitness, and also our mentality.

"We are working very hard with the defensive line. I have very good players in front, very fast but it is important we all stay together.

"I didn't want to defend too deep but when you see your players go deep it is better to help them with their mentality."
