With that latest Robbie Savage bombshell I bid you good night.

Follow the second half of the Stoke v Chelsea game here, and I shall see you tomorrow.

'My Leicester team was better than this one'

Leicester 2-1 Watford

"We had Guppy, Impey, Heskey, Lennon in my Leicester side. We finished seventh in the Premier League and won a trophy. 

"I think the Premier League was stronger in my day, and my Leicester team was slightly better than the current one. But let's see where these finish at the end of the season."  

HALF-TIME

Stoke 0-0 Chelsea

Goalless at the break at the Britannia. Plenty of needle on the pitch.

Jamie Vardy undoubtedly deserves a game through the middle for England but Roy Hodgson basically said that he should count himself lucky to even be in the squad this week. 

'Vardy should start as a centre-forward for his country'

Leicester 2-1 Watford

Robbie Savage

Former Leicester and Wales midfielder on 606, BBC Radio 5 live

"Considering where Leicester now find themselves, they could quite easily be in the top six by the end of the season. The way they attack, with 25 goals already this campaign, means they have a real opportunity. 

"And Jamie Vardy should be asking Roy Hodgson to play down the middle for England. He should start as a centre-forward for his country."

Stoke 0-0 Chelsea

Another fine save from @JackButland_One - this time with his legs from Diego Costa. Chelsea playing really well.

'I'd be very worried if was a Bournemouth supporter'

Bournemouth 0-1 Newcastle

Alan Shearer

Former Newcastle and England captain on 5 live Sport

"As a Newcastle fan I don't really care how we managed to win that! After the run they have been on it was just about getting the three points. Actually, they were pretty poor but the goalkeeper was just outstanding. 

"They have had a few good games recently, they didn't perform today but they won and that's football. 

"I'd be very worried if was a Bournemouth supporter. They had so much possession and created so many chances, but they just did not look like scoring the goal. That would worry me."

'I told Jesse to take a touch'

Man Utd 2-0 West Brom

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal speaks to BBC Sport about goalscorer Jesse Lingard: "How Jesse finished was remarkable. In a training session this week he had two chances like this and he shoots at once and I told him he needs to take a touch before the shot, which he did today

"I give every player a chance – always. When you are in my squad I will give you a chance. He grabbed it with both hands."

'He should let it hit him on the forehead'

Man Utd 2-0 West Brom

West Brom boss Tony Pulis tells BBC Sport: "After half-time the game opened up and we got more into it but the first goal is poor from us. It’s a great finish. After that I thought we got into the game and the chance (for Saido Berahino) - if there's a guy you want it to drop then it's Saido. He seems to duck his head but he should just let it hit him on the forehead. If it has to come off your nose it has to come off your nose.

"I thought today in the last 20 mins he could play a part. Unfortunately he missed the chance we needed. I’m disappointed for the players - most my sides don’t lack effort and commitment - we've just switched off and been punished. Gareth McAuley (for the red card and penalty) should have stayed on his feet and if the kid scores the kid scores."

I wouldn't tell Slaven Bilic bad news to his face either...

'I'm told McCarthy should have seen red'

West Ham 1-1 Everton

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: "I didn't see the tackle [by James McCarthy on Dimitri Payet], but people told me it should have been a red card. I will have to look at it again. But our player has been injured. I don't know how bad it is, but it was bad enough that he couldn't finish the game.

"Then Enner Valencia came on and was injured too. Until we get the scan, we don't know how bad it's going to be. We hope that both players will be OK for the Spurs game after the international break.

"But many times, I've been told it's going to be OK, and then I get a call late at night, I speak to the physio and I learn it's going to be six to eight weeks. So we will see."

'We had to get something today'

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

Norwich goalscorer Jonny Howson speaking to Match of the Day: "I haven't scored many headers in my career! It was more just a reaction from me, being in the right place at the right time.

"We've been thinking our performances haven't been too bad, but we knew the bottom line today was that, even playing ugly, we had to get something today. And keeping a clean sheet gives us a platform to build from, especially at home."

'You need patience'

Man Utd 2-0 West Brom

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal tells BBC Sport: "Everybody knows who has played football that the most difficult way to score is against a very defensive team. The space is only at the wings and we have tried to do that.

"The only way you can play against such a defensive, organised team is the way we do it, you need patience. In the second half West Brom are more tired and the chances come. The goal changed the game, we had more space. Then you can see the qualities of Anthony Martial, and we score the second goal out of his actions."

Stoke 0-0 Chelsea

The first 15 minutes have seen Stoke left-back Erik Pieters have his nose re-arranged by Pedro in an accidental clash, Diego Costa have a ruck with Ryan Shawcross and Costa then go close to converting a cross at the back post.

Standard.

'We want to attack'

Man Utd 2-0 West Brom

Manchester United goalscorer Juan Mata tells BBC Sport: "I think we played good football in the first half – in the second half we had problems. But it’s the perfect result going into the international break. We knew they would come and defend and then look for Salomon Rondon on the counter. We were patient enough. Obviously we want to attack – sometimes you can’t because of the opponent."

'What a run Vardy's on'

Leicester 2-1 Watford

Alan Shearer

Former Newcastle and England captain on 5 live Sport

"It's not every game when you score your ninth in a row. Boy, did Jamie Vardy smash that penalty and put it away well! It was a very, very good penalty. What a run he's on - magnificent, isn't it?"

'We're playing with fear'

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

Sam Allardyce

We are playing with fear and we need to get rid of that. In the end we have gifted it to Southampton. We need to pass the ball better. Our passing in possession was poor and I think it's the fear of the position we are in. It could have been a point, it could have been a point at West Brom. That's two points. We have to do better and cut out the silly mistakes. At the moment we are not good enough."

Sam AllardyceSunderland manager

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

I don't think Garry Monk and Alex Neil will agree about the game today...

'We were the most threatening team'

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

Norwich manager Alex Neil
PA

Norwich manager Alex Neil talking to BBC Sport: "We created the best chances in the game and kept it tight at the back. It certainly wasn’t one of our best performances of the season, but it was up there in terms of defensive organisation. 

"I thought we were the most threatening team in the game, no question - we could have scored more. 

"I’m delighted for the win and really delighted for the players. Our confidence has never been in question, but we needed to ensure we got points on the board. 

"Next week no-one will talk about the nature of the performance, just that we won the game."

Stirring stuff as a silent Britannia Stadium observes a rendition of the last post. Almost go time. 

'We have work to do now'

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

Garry Monk at Carrow Road

Swansea boss Garry Monk speaking to Match of the Day in the tunnel at Carrow Road: "We had total control up until the goal. It's frustrating, very frustrating at the moment. One lapse of concentration has cost us dearly again and it’s been the story of the last couple of weeks, which is very frustrating for everyone. 

"We got caught with a sucker punch against the run of play. There are not many teams who will come to Carrow Road and have almost total control of the game, doing just what we wanted, 

"We have work to do now. We have to look and assess where we are over the break, and come back with the right approach and start to pick things up."

'Big baby'

Stoke v Chelsea (17:30 GMT)

BBC Radio 5 Live

Jose Mourinho has to take responsibility. I have always been a fan of Mourinho's up until this season. He has been charismatic, he has been charming and he has been brilliant for the Premier League. But he has behaved like a petulant big baby."

Alan Shearer

"As a Newcastle fan I don't really care how we managed to win that!

"I'd be very worried if was a Bournemouth supporter. They had so much possession and created so many chances, but they just did not look like scoring the goal. That would worry me."

'We kept West Ham very, very quiet'

West Ham 1-1 Everton

Everton manager Roberto Martinez, speaking to BBC Sport: "We allowed West Ham too much space for the first goal, but I was delighted with the way we responded. We kept West Ham very, very quiet in the second half.

"The performance was terrific in terms of having a winning mentality. I was just disappointed at the end that we couldn't find that bit of magic to get the three points."

Stoke v Chelsea (17:30 GMT)

Whose name is being sung loudly inside the Britannia right now?

Here's a clue: Jose Mourinhoooo!

Everyone crying about United's lack of attacking intent. Completely ignoring how excellent their defence has been, bar Arsenal #bbcfootball

Really disappointed in Everton. I expect a lot better than "foul the best West Ham Players." #WHUEVE #bbcfootball

National League side Altrincham pulled off the biggest upset of the day in the first round of the FA Cup as they earned a 1-0 victory over Barnsley, who sit 45 places above Lee Sinnott's team in the football pyramid.

Forest Green Rovers were 2-1 winners at League Two Wimbledon, while fellow National League club Eastleigh beat 10-man League One strugglers Crewe 1-0.

'Mourinho in a dark place'

I just feel Jose Mourinho is in a dark place. He thinks the world is against him. His paranoia is always going to get the better of him. I think he is is aggressive and I think the way he conducts himself off the pitch does cause an embarrassment for Chelsea."

John CrossDaily Mirror chief football reporter

'Massive result'

Stoke v Chelsea (17:30 GMT)

Mark Lawrenson

Former Liverpool defender

"Chelsea's Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday was a massive result. Not just because of the victory, but because they got it after being pegged back to 1-1 late in the game.  

"I think it could turn out to be a turning point in Chelsea's season, because it was a completely different reaction to the one we saw from their players when they conceded an equaliser just before half-time of their defeat by Liverpool last weekend.

"Stoke will be ready for them, but I am backing Chelsea to win this time."

Happy travellers

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

This is a well deserved result. The penalty was well taken and that brings three points, a second clean sheet in a row and we're still unbeaten away from home. I think that's fantastic."

'After a few defeats, these wins count'

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

Norwich celebrate
PA

Norwich goalscorer Jonny Howson, speaking to Sky Sports: "We've had a few bad results over the past few weeks, but our performances haven’t been too bad. We said before this match that we needed something from the game. 

"Swansea are very good in possession and you have to respect your opposition at this level. 

"The goal gave us all a lift and over the past few games we've conceded first, which at this level is hard to come back from. So the goal gave us a platform from which to hold on. 

"After a few defeats, these wins count. We kept a clean sheet, having conceded a few sloppy goals this season from set pieces. So this result is very pleasing."

Subterranean Stoke

Stoke v Chelsea (17:30 GMT)

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer

"Lots of wisecracks about Mourinho savouring the warmth of his room at Chelsea's hotel rather than the traditional freeze-in at Stoke.

"Let it be said that the weather is positively mild and the environment of The Britannia Stadium is one of the most enjoyable and atmospheric in the Premier League."

The limelight has been on Vardy & rightfully so but Ranieri deserves more credit. They've been absolutely brilliant under him #bbcfootball

If #LVG had made the same pizza promise as #Ranieri @ManUtd wld be the fattest team in the #PremierLeague #bbcfootball

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has previously promised to buy his players pizza in return for clean sheets.

Championship

Thirty one goals in 11 Championship games, seven coming at bottom club Rotherham where the hosts, five points from safety, were thumped 5-2 in front of their own fans. At the top, Hull City and Brighton both won and both have 34 points, the Tigers at the summit thanks to a superior goal difference.

Struggling Charlton defeated Sheffield Wednesday to ease their worries near the bottom while Birmingham scored five at Fulham. 

The matches at Wolves,QPR and Bolton ended goalless.

The problem with Mourinho for me is that he puts himself and his ego before and above the rest of his team!! #ItsAboutTheTeam #bbcfootball

As always, when Chelsea struggle on the pitch u can rely on their toddler to spit his dummy out & try to deflect attention away #bbcfootball
