What the papers say

Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

The Times: "A week on from their 3-0 defeat to Sunderland, their local rivals, Newcastle remain in the bottom three and another game, another inviting opportunity, has elapsed. They are still waiting for the great leap forward at St James’ Park."

Independent: "The plaudits here were for an Englishman. That felt a bit unique, given the rarity of English players involved in games in these parts. There were only three on the field – Glen Johnson, Ryan Shawcross and Jack Butland – but the day belonged to the latter."

Daily Star: "Jack Butland was the hero as Stoke left Newcastle with a hard-earned point as the Magpies once again failed to make the most of their chances."

Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren speaking to BBC Sport: "Four great saves from Jack Butland denied us a win and got Stoke a point. 

"He was unbelievable and the difference between us and three points."

He added: "We are building, growing and progressing - the last five games - we are getting there. 

"There were lost of positives and the only disappointment is not getting the three points."

Stoke manager Mark Hughes speaking to BBC Sport: "We were a bit frustrated in the first half. We had plenty of possession around their area but didn't look like we wanted to shoot.

"Their keeper has made a great save from Jon Walters.

"As the away team you are going to give away a couple of chances and when we did Jack Butland saved.

"He is doing exceptionally well. Jack is a very mature individual and I think that helps him."

Butland has been excellent for #Stoke this season. Quick reactions, doesn't get intimidated, dominates one-on-ones. #MOTD

If Mitrovic does that on a night out in Newcastle he'll be laughed all the way out of the toon.. Embarrassing reaction. #MOTD

Man of the match - Jack Butland

Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

BBC Sport's Mandeep Sanghera picked Stoke keeper Jack Butland as man of the match at St James' Park. The England keeper has been earning plenty of plaudits so far this season and showed why with a string of impressive saves to earn his side a point against the Magpies.

His best came when he tipped a Jamaal Lascelles header over the crossbar.

What the papers say

Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

The Guardian: "Louis van Gaal's Manchester United team continue to sap the morale of onlookers and this was another grinding, uninspired performance."

Daily Mail: "No invention. No guile. No imagination. It was a performance that will only serve to justify assertions, Paul Scholes' included, that this is one of the most humdrum United outfits in recent memory."

Daily Telegraph: "Goalless draws sap a club’s spirit. They kill momentum. They test the patience of fans. And while United remain a top-four side, the travelling support made their feelings apparent. “We’re Man United,” they sang, “we want to attack.”

Rooney needs to be dropped. Hopeless at the moment. Martial would be far better as the main striker. #MOTD

United are such a poor team, Crystal Palace were well worth at least a point today! What's happened to the Red Devils? #CPFC #MUFC #MOTD.

Is this even Rooney's fault he's not scoring? It's not like we're giving him chances #MOTD

Not the result we or you wanted but just want to thank our travelling fans. Win, draw or lose you're always there for us #mufc

A very complicated match, pitty not to add up 3 more points. On Tuesday, a @ChampionsLeague key game!

Manager reaction

Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: "We should have won. It was an excellent performance from us - as good as we have been all year. 

"United - and it doesn't happen very often - were probably fortunate to get a point. It was a shame we didn't win it but with the run we've been on we needed to take something, so the point was important for us. We got back to the real Crystal Palace today."

Manager reaction

Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal: "We did not keep the ball. That's a very important factor and because of that we didn't create too many chances. I have to say I can't complain about the result.

"[Not scoring for a third consecutive game] is a big concern but I already said that after the second match, especially against Middlesbrough, because we created many chances but did not finish. Today we didn't create so many chances so it's more difficult. When you don't keep the ball you can't create chances."

#MOTD

England record aside, Rooney has been poor this season. Should be Martial up top imo #MOTD

Martial should have had two assists today. Let down by his team-mates big time. #MOTD

Why do #MUFC insist on playing Martial as a winger?! £30m+ on a striker, then play out of position 🙈#MOTD

Martial most effective on left?

Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan pondered the selection of Anthony Martial on the left wing, with Wayne Rooney preferred as the lone striker.

"There was no doubt who United were trying to get the ball to in the first half. So it begs the question, why not stick him down the middle? I guess, at least it means United are getting in behind the Palace defence on one flank."

Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan had Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye down as man of the match at Selhurst Park. The Frenchman returned from injury to break up United's midfield, link play well and almost crowned a rugged performance with a second-half goal.

What the papers say

Watford 2-0 West Ham

The Guardian: "West Ham have taken maximum points from their games against Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea, but they also have one of a possible nine against Bournemouth, Norwich and now Watford."

Daily Express: "Andy Carroll’s personal Halloween nightmare at Vicarage Road carried on when he scuffed a shot wide and then fell over his own feet when he had a simple tap-in after sub Enner Valencia’s shot came back off the woodwork."

Daily Telegraph: "Watford have struggled to score this season but they boast one of the league’s meanest defences. Here, their obduracy frustrated Bilic’s side."

Watford manager Quique Flores, speaking to BBC Sport: "I'm really pleased, very happy with the result and the performance. "I think we enjoyed the game a lot. 

"The players played with real confidence on the ball, with high pressure, it was an amazing performance. 

"It's been important to change the mentality when you come in from a lower division, to win gives you the respect of the other teams."

Watford 2-0 West Ham

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, speaking to BBC Sport: "What happens weeks before and all the statistics is interesting but it doesn't mean a thing once the referee blows his whistle. 

"From the start we were basically second best. They were better in every football department and totally deserved to beat us. 

"We didn't have energy. They were quicker, more hungry than us. Today it was just that."

What the papers say

West Brom 2-3 Leicester

The Mirror: "Leicester City came from behind once again to claim all three points at West Brom - but they will have to be satisfied with the win, and no pizza. Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri promised the Italian delicacy for his whole squad after they finally kept a clean sheet last weekend, but will not follow suit after their 3-2 win at the Hawthorns."

Express and Star: "West Brom boss Tony Pulis is going to speak to referees' chief Mike Riley about today's defeat at home to Leicester City. The Baggies had, at least, two strong penalty shouts against Robert Huth waved away during the game by referee Anthony Taylor."

Manager reaction

West Brom 2-3 Leicester

West Brom manager Tony Pulis: "Leicester did really well, it was a good game and in Jamie Vardy they have an exceptional player. His pace frightened us all afternoon.

"But the referee should have given us a penalty and sent their man off. It shouldn't happen at this level - the standard of refereeing should be better.

"[Referees' chief] Mike Riley should be on the phone asking why we weren't given two penalties.

"I've had a go in the tunnel with him and I apologise about that. I should be writing my report but I do hope they look at it."

West Brom 2-3 Leicester

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri: "We fight to the end. We have a very strong character and play good football. 

"I told my players they were playing very well at half-time, to be careful at set-plays, and it was important to move the ball quickly and put them under pressure. We did that well. 

"It's important Jamie Vardy continues to work for the team. The record is good for everybody."
