Get involved

That's not all, folks

If you think the sporting action is over for today, you are bang wrong. BBC Radio 5 live has live coverage of the heavyweight fight between Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte live from the O2. 

The under card (Kevin Mitchell v Ismael Barroso and Chris Eubank Jr v Spike O’Sullivan) is covered on 5 live sports extra from 20:45 GMT before the main bout at 22:30 GMT.

Mike Costello and Richie Woodall will guide you through the action.

We will also be covering tonight's boxing action via live text commentary, which starts at 20:30 GMT.

But as far as football reaction is concerned that is us out. Bye.

Almost done

I'm almost done with the reaction to today's Premier League games. If you're still here, you might want to bail out now and head over to catch the last 20 minutes of Bournemouth v Manchester United. The home side currently lead 2-1.

You can follow that here.

Manager reaction

Crystal Palace 1-0 Southampton

Saints' boss Ronald Koeman is pleased with his side's spirit and is confident they can get back to winning ways soon.

"I’m disappointed about the final result, but not in the performance of the team. The wind made it very difficult to play our football. 

"Maybe it suited Palace more because they play more direct than we do, but we controlled it for 20 minutes but then they scored. 

"We were ther better team in second half and dominated, and we’re disappointed not score in the last seconds.

"Maybe we lack a bit of confidence, but the boys showed good character. It’s now four or five games where we don’t win, I’m a little bit worried about that but not worried about the spirit. 

"It will come, we will win and we have a nice one next week."

John Hartson

Former Wales striker on Final Score

"Clean sheets win you games. Sam Allarydce will tell you that, Tony Pulis will tell you the same. 

"This solid defensive play is working wonders for Watford."

Man City performance awful - Hart

Manchester City 2-1 Swansea City

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart made a series of superb saves against Swansea this afternoon as the home team struggled and the England stopper accepted his side were extremely lucky to take three points.

"It was a big win considering we were awful," said Hart.

"I thought Swansea played really well considering the difficult circumstances.

"When we play well, I am a bit of a bystander so it was good for me to be involved. 

"It's a good sign to not always play particularly well and be top of the league, qualify as group winners in the Champions League and to be in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

"To a man, we can all improve."

Manager reaction

Manchester City 2-1 Swansea City

Bafetimbi Gomis' late equaliser looked certain to earn Swansea a point at Manchester City and their caretaker boss Alan Curtis was understandably low after Yaya Toure's shot deflected in off Kelechi Iheanacho to give the home team victory.

"We certainly deserved to get something from the game," said Curtis.

"I guess that's the difference between teams at the top of the league and the teams at the bottom.That's the standard we have to set between now and the end of the season.

"Part of the problem of the last 11 or 12 games is we haven't scored enough goals. It was a terrific finish from Bafetimbi - he has come on and shown what he can do. He has to repeat that.

"We have 100% belief that we can get out of trouble. We showed today we are still a good team with very good players."

GOAL - Bournemouth 2-1 Man Utd

Josh King

The Goldsands Stadium goes mad as Bournemouth execute what is clearly a training-ground corner move, which sees Josh King break off his marker to meet a low ball to the penalty spot and fire in first time.

League Two round-up

No doubt about where to start in English football's fourth tier.

Northampton overcame Luton 4-3 in a thrilling seven-goal encounter at Kenilworth Road. That result - combined with Oxford being held to 1-1 draw at home by Carlisle and Plymouth losing 2-1 away to Cambridge - sent the Cobblers two points clear at the top.

Down at the bottom, York replaced Yeovil at the foot of the table as they came a 2-1 cropper away to Bristol Rovers and their relegation rivals secured a 2-2 draw at home to Barnet.

We showed we can fight too - Flores

Sunderland 0-1 Watford

Watford head coach Quique Flores: "We started really well and for the first 25 minutes we did well with the ball and created several chances. 

"Towards the end we had to defend well and we showed everyone that we can fight too.

"It was very satisfying to see - everyone has talked a lot about the strikers but what we do when we don't have the ball is important too."

League One round-up

Burton might want to tell Nigel Clough to stick with his media commitments in Dubai.

The League One leaders won 3-0 at Gillingham to temporarily go four points clear of Coventry, who play tomorrow.

At the other end, Crewe conceded twice in stoppage time to lose 3-2 at Doncaster to slip bottom, replacing Barnsley, who won 3-2 at Colchester.


Bournemouth 1-1 Man Utd

It is half-time in Bournemouth, where Eddie Howe's side are drawing 1-1 with Louis van Gaal's Manchester United. Junior Stanislas opened the scoring straight from a corner before Marouane Fellaini bundled in a leveller. All to play for in the second half.

GOAL - Bournemouth 1-1 Man Utd

Marouane Fellaini

United are level. Memphis Depay chests down a long ball into the box on the run and draws a save from Artur Boruc with a low shot, but Marouane Fellaini follows up, muscles through a challenge and pokes the ball in to the net.

We are back in the pressure pot - Allardyce

Sunderland 0-1 Watford

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce: "It was just the beginning of the game that was the poor bit but, because of that, we lost a game we shouldn't have done. Some of the chances we created and missed in the second half were a big problem for us. 

"I look at the chances in the last 15 or 20 minutes and I am a little bit dumbfounded why we haven't at least got one point on the board. 

"If we had won it would have made such a huge difference but now we are back in the pressure pot which is really disappointing with the games we have coming up."

The Black Cats stay 19th in the table and face Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool in their next three games.

Manager reaction

Manchester City 2-1 Swansea City

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini wasn't satisfied by his team's performance but believes the result was all that matters after Yaya Toure's shot deflected off Kelechi Iheanacho for a stoppage-time winner.

"I think the three points were very important, more than the way we played," he said.

"I knew it would be difficult because we had three or four players who couldn't recover from the last game.

"Swansea played very well and it's not the way we want to win. Now we have a week to recover - we have played too many games with 13 or 14 players."

'Back off, that's my goal'

Man City 2-1 Swansea

Kelechi Iheanacho

Not that this will matter one way or another to Manchester City and their fans, but their winning goal - originally awarded to Yaya Toure - has now been given to Kelechi Iheanacho, or more accurately Kelechi Iheanacho's back.

England draw Wales

'Man Utd's stealthy title challenge'

Bournemouth v Man Utd (17:30 GMT)

Mark Lawrenson

Former Liverpool defender on Football Focus

"Yes Manchester United are boring to watch but they have stopped conceding goals and are up there in the table. They could win the league by stealth, I think they have a relaly good chance.

"I don't think Louis van Gaal will stay until the end of his contract though - which runs out at the end of next season.

"Once the press really starts to have a go, he'll be off to Portugal - that's where he's always said he's going to go once he finishes this job."

'Van Gaal has left Man Utd short'

Bournemouth v Man Utd (17:30 GMT)

John Hartson

Former Arsenal striker on BBC Radio 5 live

"Man Utd have always bought the best players and that’s what the supporters want. They want big, big players. The likes of Anthony Martial need top players to supply them - you can’t expect too much from him. 

"He’s young, he’s only got one goal in 10 games and he should be brought out of the team, but they've got no-one else. They've left themselves very short and that has to boil down to the manager."

Jason Roberts

Former West Brom striker on BBC Radio 5 live

"From England’s perspective, I don’t think any of the Home Nations is a good draw. It’s always going to be difficult. I think it’s a lose-lose situation. You come up against the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland, that’s going to be a tough, tough game."

Manager reaction - Koeman

Crystal Palace 1-0 Southampton

Managers often talk about not getting too excited after a victory and not too despondent after a defeat. And Southampton manager Ronald Koeman is evidence of that today. The Dutchman manages a rueful grin as he dissects his side's fourth defeat in five games.

"Of course I'm disappointed about the final result, but I'm not disappointed about the performance of the team," says Koeman.

"The start was difficult and the wind was difficult to play our football. Maybe Palace had an advantage because they, in my opinion, play more direct than us. The second half we were the better team and had the better chances.

"If Shane Long had scored at the end that was 1-1 and that would have been deserved result today. If we weren't creating chances then I'd be very worried."

'LVG just wants to win'

Bournemouth v Man Utd (17:30 GMT)

Jason Roberts

Former West Brom striker on BBC Radio 5 live

"Where Manchester United were before with free-flowing football, Louis van Gaal's job isn’t to replicate that – it’s to win. 

"If they get back to winning ways I don’t think he’ll lose any sleep over fans shouting ‘attack, attack, attack’ or what ex-players have to say. 

"They’re still in the pack - Chelsea look out of the title race, Manchester City are dropping points – Leicester seem to be the only club running with it. He’ll be thinking there’s no reason we can’t win this.

"The Champions League thing is a disaster but it’s the manner in which they’re playing football. If they were in the same position but playing free-flowing football there wouldn’t be all this talk. The manager knows how to win and build a club."

Man Utd

Will Red Devils' week get worse?

Bournemouth v Man Utd (17:30 GMT)

Simon Brotherton

MOTD commentator at Vitality Stadium

"A bad week for Manchester United has the potential to get a little bit worse as they limp to the south coast on the back of their Champions League exit.

"The team sheet will be interesting as United are without nine first-team players through injury or suspension.

"Bournemouth were spirited in coming back to draw their last home match 3-3 against Everton, before stunning Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last week.

"Manager Eddie Howe described it as the biggest win in their history and they're now aiming to claim back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time."

Manager reaction - Hughes

West Ham 0-0 Stoke

Mark Hughes gives little emotion away - unless he's really angry. But we reckon the Stoke manager is reasonably happy with a point at West Ham.

"We had chances to win it - on reflection it was a game we could of won but we had to defend as well," says the Welshman, who will be scooting off to catch the Euro 2016 draw no doubt.
