Goodnight!

Sir Alex Ferguson
PA

So, that's a wrap from us. We leave you with Manchester United on top of the pile for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired!

We'll all be back tomorrow afternoon, but before then be sure to tune into MOTD 2 Extra. That's on BBC Two at 12:15 BST. Will Perry will be joined by guests Trevor Sinclair, Ollie Holt and Guy Mowbray.

Until then, goodnight!

'Walters is relentless'

Stoke 2-1 Bournemouth

Danny Murphy

Former England midfielder

"Jonathan Walters doesn't give defenders a breather at all. Mark Hughes knows he can rely on him. Those little goals can b e crucial. It maybe wasn't his best game but the Stoke fans appreciate his efforts"

Manager reaction - 'Wilson loss a huge blow'

Stoke 2-1 Bournemouth

Manager Eddie Howe on Callum Wilson's injury: "It doesn't look good. He's in a brace, he's on crutches and he's in a lot of pain.

"He took a whack to the knee, thought he was OK to carry on but then collapsed."

On the game, Howe said: "I was disappointed with the first half, we didn't react well to Callum's departure but thought we were dominant with the ball in the second half and at 1-1 there was only going to be one winner, so it's disappointing to have lost from there. We could have defended that situation better."

Stoke 2-1 Bournemouth

Stoke boss Mark Hughes: "It was an important win - we probably played better in other games and got beaten. This was about getting the three points.

"We played with a bit of apprehension in the second half which allowed them back into the game, but showed good courage after that as it would have been very easy for Bournemouth to gain momentum after their equaliser. Great ball by Glen Johnson for the goal, great finish by Mame Diouf."

Walters busy

Stoke 2-1 Bournemouth

Jonathan Walters scored his third goal in as many matches for Stoke but his general play was also good. 

The Ireland striker helped bring his team-mates into the game and dropped into a deeper role when Mame Biram Diouf was introduced to lead the Potters' attack.

Rotten luck for Callum Wilson. He's been doing so well in the Premier League. #MOTD

#MOTD not nice seeing a player stretchered off 😟

Bad injury for Callum Wilson, hope he recovers soon 😦 #MOTD

Stoke's saviour

Stoke 2-1 Bournemouth

Jack Butland made some key saves at key times to keep Bournemouth at bay, saving 83% of the shots he faced. Future England number one?

great to finally get that win, hopefully now we can kick on! wishing Callum Wilson a speedy recovery, thinking of you mate! 👊🏼

Man of the match - Marko Arnautovic

Stoke 2-1 Bournemouth

BBC Sport's James McMath chose Marko Arnautovic as man of the match in his report after the Austrian set up Jon Walters's opener for Stoke.

Arnautovic, 26, did brilliantly to create the chance and almost added a goal just before half time. He was quieter in the second half as Stoke dropped deep to defend their lead but still showed signs of his quality.

Delighted to see VVD get his first goal for @SouthamptonFC in the BPL today. #MOTD

Southampton v Swansea very much the hipster's choice of Premier League fixtures this weekend. #MOTD

Manager reaction

Southampton 3-1 Swansea

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman: "It was not a very good performance today. The way we played is not the level we expect. But we were much more clinical today than normally. That was the difference between Swansea and Southampton.

"You need good communication in the team but we had some problems - they were allowed four or five good shots from outside the area."

Swansea manager Garry Monk: "We have not been up to scratch in the last two away games. We were not focused enough and possibly made too many mistakes today.

"They punished us and we never recovered from that. All three goals were disappointing. It was poor decision-making and individual errors. It's not good enough for the standard we have set here at the club."

Patience leads to Mane goal

Southampton 3-1 Swansea

Sadio Mane's goal started with confident build-up from the back. There were 11 passes before Graziano Pelle's initial shot was blocked by Ashley Williams.

Virgil van Dijk had a near-perfect afternoon for Southampton. He scored, won all nine of his duels with the opposition and made eight clearances. The boy done good.

Man of the match - Graziano Pelle

BBC Sport's Saj Chowdhury picked out Southampton forward Graziano Pelle as the man of the match in his report.

'West Ham struggle to dictate'

West Ham 2-2 Norwich

Ruud Gullit

MOTD pundit

"It looks very good for West Ham in the table, they have won all their games against the top teams at home. When they have to dictate a game at home they struggle a bit. But Norwich gave them a good game."

When you concede with a minute to go, it is always disappointing but we will take encouragement from how well we played. We went for the winner and Nathan popped up but unfortunately we concede and it is not nice. I thought Nathan could have an impact on the game and we dominated the middle. The two teams both went at it and tried to win the game and did well. I am pleased with the run but we had three points in our hands today. We have to do enough to get the points on the board.

I am happy that we showed the character at the end and we deserved it. A draw is a fair result and they are probably gutted because of the timing of the last goal. All the teams we have played at home, apart from Newcastle, are all very energetic teams. They enjoy defending. If you match them in the awareness and the basics, then we are better than them on the pitch. If you drop yourselves, five or 10 percent, they use it and play well. We know what Andy Carroll brings us. He needs a few games to get to his best and was out for a long time. He is useful. It is not hard, but almost impossible to defend against him sometimes.

Excellent pigeon updates from the West Ham media team today...

55: Sad news. A pigeon looks to be in a bit of trouble in midfield. Howson picks up the bird and takes it to the safety of the East Stand

74: If anyone is sitting in the East Stand and has a condition check on the stricken pigeon, it would be appreciated [1-1] #WHUFC #WHUNOR

PIGEON: Sadly we do not have any update on the pigeon who was injured in midfield this afternoon. We hope he/she is flying again #WHUFC

Man of the match

West Ham 2-2 Norwich

BBC Sport's Shamoon Hafez picked out Norwich winger Robbie Brady as his man of the match in his report.

Republic of Ireland international Brady took his goal well and almost scored another with a free-kick. His control in possession put Norwich on the front foot on numerous occasions in the game

Danny Murphy

Former England midfielder

"This is a real test. Their next three fixtures (Arsenal, Everton and Man City) are good games and we'll see what United are made of. They're not playing that well but they're top of the league, so you have to be in awe of them really."

#MOTD Sunderland have been the worst team in the league for years. Just relegate them already! #Safc

I really do worry for Sunderland this season, their defence is awful and they're not scoring goals either! #MUFC #SAFC #MOTD.

I feel sorry for #SAFC, really I do. Not really Advocaat's fault they're struggling. Been badly run as a club for a long time. #MOTD

Mackems don't attack 'em

Man Utd 3-0 Sunderland

The MOTD pundits reckon Sunderland's players invited Manchester United's pressure and didn't really attack at Old Trafford. Looking at the average positions of their players, it's hard to argue otherwise.

Are Manchester United too slow in their tempo? Ruud Gullit certainly thinks so.

"You don't need 42 or 43 passes to score. You can do it in two," he says.

Haha i was sat at the opposite end to the Rooney goal so didn't know how he'd scored it but he was superb 2nd half #mufc #MOTD

Rooney is 15 behind Charlton...I'm excited for him #MOTD

United top of the league, United United top of the league! #motd

Sunday's headlines

Most of tomorrow's back pages lead on the rugby, but the Express focuses on Manchester United's return to the top of the Premier League for the first time in more than two years.

Manager reaction - 'We have to change things'

Man Utd 3-0 Sunderland

Dick Advocaat, Sunderland

Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat: "The first half we did well, organisation wise, but the problem was they scored one minute before half-time and one minute after half-time. 

 "United were the better side but they didn't create a lot of chances. It's a shame we gave that goal away in the first half because it made things different in the second half. 

"We have a lot of games to go but we have to think about how we change things in the squad, as players."
