Goodnight

Back tomorrow from 10:00 GMT

And as Jose nears the exit door, we will step away from duty ourselves. It's been a mammoth day of live texts from 09:00 GMT. We're starting at 10:00 GMT on Sunday to take in games featuring Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool. Remi Garde will also make his bow as Aston Villa manager.

Thanks for all your tweets tonight, see you in the morning. Sleep well.

Before we leave you Gary Lineker manages to get a swipe in at Ian Wright's glasses. Wright has gone for the Jack Duckworth look by wearing some spectacles which are clearly broken. (apologies if you've never seen Coronation Street)

One a more serious note, the Sunday papers and they don't make great reading for Jose. The Express claims he's nearly out of the Stamford Bridge door...

That pass was so gorgeous from Deulofeu, it would have been criminal if Lukaku hadn't scored from it #MOTD #EFC

What the papers say

West Ham 1-1 Everton

The Mirror: "Slaven Bilic reckons big No.9s are back in fashion thanks to Andy Carroll and Romelu Lukaku but his was outshone by Everton's. Carroll is better in the air but Lukaku has the better all-round game."

Daily Mail: "Lukaku's unerring finish illustrated why the Toffees will have a battle on their hands to keep him next summer. Europe's top clubs are monitoring the former Chelsea striker; Juventus and Paris Saint Germain among them. Everton will not listen to offers under £45m. More afternoons like this and the price-tag will go north."

The Guardian: "Everton will still harbour some genuine thoughts from here of making a play for that suddenly rather available fourth place. They have a high-class first XI, no midweek European distractions and a manger who bristles with ambition."

"Our concentration levels were very high"

Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "Once we got to grips with the intensity West Ham play with, I thought we were very strong, especially in the second half.

"Our concentration levels were very high once we had conceded, and we worked very hard as a unit defensively.

"We had quality going forward too and it seemed the winning goal would come but we just could not find the final pass."

"We needed that kind of positive reaction"

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: "We are never happy with one point, especially at home, but I was happy with the performance.  

"We needed that kind of positive reaction after what happened last week at Watford.

"Everton deserved a point but in my opinion we were slightly better than them."

"We have to wait for the scan"

Bilic and Payet

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic admits he faces a nervous wait on the fitness of Dimitri Payet after he hobbled off with an injured ankle in the second half against Everton.

Bilic said: "We lost Payet because of a bad tackle. We can only hope that he will be OK and it is not going to be long-term, but we have to wait for the scan."  

To make matters worse, Payet's replacement Enner Valencia was also forced off by an ankle injury soon afterwards.

Payet the creator

West Ham 1-1 Everton

Dimitri Payet was West Ham's most creative player before he went off injured after 50 minutes. The three chances he made against Everton mean no other Premier League player has created more than him in 2015-16.

"I play to win"

West Ham 1-1 Everton

"That is my game, going in behind and trying to be clinical in a one-on-one," Everton striker Romelu Lukaku said when asked about his goal. "It was a great ball from Gerard Deulofeu and the finish was good.

"I am happy but I play to win games and I am disappointed not to win."

Man of the match - Everton's Gerard Deulofeu

BBC Sport's Chris Bevan voted Everton forward Gerard Deulofeu as his man of the match, after his sparkling attacking display.

Bevan wrote: "It was Deulofeu's perfectly-weighted through ball that released Romelu Lukaku to round Adrian and score Everton's equaliser, and the Spaniard's skill and desire to run at defenders lit up the game."

Romelu Lukaku has now scored seven goals in seven games against West Ham for Everton (five in the Premier League, two in the FA Cup).

Lukaku’s goal at Upton Park on Saturday also equalled the most number of goals he has scored against a single opponent in the Premier League; he has also scored five against Newcastle and Liverpool.

'Fighting at the top'

One more point today to keep fighting in the top of the table! Now time to recover & relax to be back stronger! #COYI ⚒

"Imagine what's in Andy Carroll's mind," says Match of the Day commentator Alan Green as a set-piece delivery is waster.

A look at the touch maps of Carroll (left) and Romelu Lukaku (right) is interesting as both men played through the middle. We can see Lukaku's 38 touches are more focused as the Blues keep him central and close to the opposition box.

Carroll only had the ball 21 times in 87 minutes on the field and as you can see, his contribution was more spread.

Get it down the right!

Average positions in West Ham v Everton
BBC Sport

Everton's biggest threat came when they got Gerard Deulofeu (number 19) on the ball but West Ham also focused their attacks down their right, through Victor Moses (20).

Moses was the Hammers' most advanced player and 43% of their attacks went down the right wing compared to 29% down the left.

What's happened to Swansea of late? Used to be a decent side #MOTD

Scruffy win for Norwich against a Swansea side in a horrible run of form. They will be glad it's the international break next week. #motd

What the papers say

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

Daily Mail: "Swansea had 75 per cent of the ball and much of it inside Norwich’s half, but made it count not a jot, with the home side having the best chances."

Telegraph: "This defeat was particularly alarming for Swansea. The defending from Garry Monk’s players was poor, and Bafetimbi Gomis appears to have lost confidence."

Mirror: "Swansea's Jefferson Montero was on fire at the start of the season, taking opposing fullbacks to the cleaners seemingly at will.

"Since then he's gone off the boil big time and his confidence looks in shreds.He needs to get his mojo back quickly if Swansea want to stay in the top flight."

Canaries keep it simple

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

It was a match short on cutting edge but when Norwich eventually broke the deadlock, it could hardly have come in more simple fashion.

The corner was swung in from the right, Dieumerci Mbokani knocked it down and Jonny Howson rifled in from close range.

"It was one of those where it was a good corner, they worked it well," says Ian Wright on Match of the Day.

Bafetimbi baffled

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

The goals have dried up for Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis. He scored four in four in August but hasn't found the net since, and this graphic may help to explain why.

Despite playing as a lone striker, Gomis was forced to operate predominantly in deep-lying areas, retreating towards the centre of the pitch in search of possession and only rarely managing to get into the penalty box.

Gomis had five shots but they were almost all from long range and hence none of them found the target.

'One error cost us dear'

Swansea City manager Garry Monk: "It's very frustrating. We had total control up until the goal, but unfortunately one lapse of concentration has cost us dearly again and it's been the story of the last couple of weeks.

"It was a difficult game, but our intention was right. We knew we might only get one or two chances. But we got caught with a sucker punch against the run of play. We totally dominated Norwich with the ball and didn't allow them anything other than the goal.

"We have work to do now. We have to look and assess where we are."

'We changed our style'

Norwich 1-0 Swansea

Alex Neil

Norwich City manager Alex Neil: "It certainly wasn't one of our best performances of the season, but we created the best chances in the game and kept it tight at the back.

"We changed our style, which I felt was necessary because we haven't been keeping enough clean sheets. I thought the lads responded well to that, though conceding possession at home is not something we are used to.

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

I'm sorry to interrupt the Norwich game briefly but with a headline like 'Lionel Jessie', it felt worthwhile. 

The Daiy Star Sunday leads on a warning from England manager Roy Hodgson to Danny Welbeck and Daniel Sturridge.

BBC Sport's James Gheerbrant chose Norwich's Jonny Howson as man of the match in his report after the midfielder scored the only goal of the game.

Howson also set up a number of good chances with his wicked delivery from set pieces.

Norwich City recorded just 32.8% possession in their win over Swansea. That is their lowest in any home game this season by some margin.

Swansea boss Garry Monk has plenty of things to worry about. Not only is the much-vaunted attacking trio of Jefferson Montero, Andre Ayew and Bafetimbi Gomis struggling, but the Swansea defence is leaking too.

The Swans have now conceded 11 goals in their last six matches - with not a shutout in any of them.

To their credit Sunderland did put up a good fight today. But there's still some lax attitudes Big Sam needs to get sorted. #MOTD

What the papers say

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

Daily Mirror: "There was precious little in Sunderland's attacking play today to suggest they can mount a decent fightback up the table.

"Boss Sam Allardyce needs to put out a side who will at least have a go – while capitalising on his undoubted organisational abilily. Another great escape is needed."

Guardian: "It is a long time, and several managers, since Sunderland fans have derived any sustained pleasure from observing their team in action and sure enough, watching Allardyce’s charges was once again, a somewhat gruelling experience."

Don't blame it on me...

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

Yann M'Vila
Opta

Yann M'Vila's needless foul blotted what was otherwise a very good display. He broke up play well and played more passes than anyone else in a red and white shirt. As the game went on though, he became less accurate and ended up with a pass-completion rate of 69%. 

M'Vila gained possession 12 times. That's more than anyone else on the pitch.

Manager reaction

Ronald Koeman
BBC

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman: "I think if we reach European football, it would be like we had won the title. Of course it's possible. We have the experience from last year. But we have potential, we have qualities, in my opinion, we have a squad now to fight for that. Top four? It's maybe too difficult. Qualifying for Europe means maybe seventh place - like last season." 

Penalty?

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

Now then. Was this handball? Maya Yoshida turns his back and a header strikes the back of his arm - his tricep. Sam Allardyce thought so.

A difference maker?

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

Virgil van Dijk
Opta

Virgil van Dijk signed for Southampton from Celtic for £11.5m in September. The central defender has two league goals and his impact seems telling.

Today, the 24-year-old had 19 duels, winning 73% of them. His display alongside Jose Fonte helped the Saints earn back-to-back clean sheets for the second time this season.

Crazy, crazy tackle...

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

You'll see some mental challenges this season. Yann M'Vila will probably make the top five with that effort. Lunacy.

Man of the match

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

Jordy Clasie

I covered this game earlier and felt at around this stage Southampton were shaping for a knockout blow. However, despite the quality they have going forward, Jordy Clasie stood out for me as man of the match.

He started many of Southampton's attacks, touching the ball more than any of his team-mates and playing more passes - completing 88%.

Black Cats tighten up

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

Sunderland defensively
Opta

Sunderland opted for a 4-4-2 system today over the back three they operated in their 6-2 loss at Everton last week. You can see from today's average positions (left) that things look more compact and organised compared to last week (right).

Yann M'Vila (21) offered a good shield to the defence until his error cost the home side the game. The question now is, how does Sam Allardyce take this tight setup and still give it some attacking threat?

LINE-UPS

Sunderland 0-1 Southampton

Sunderland made four changes from their 6-2 loss at Everton. Lee Cattermole remains sidelined with injury, while there was a full debut for Duncan Watmore.

Southampton just made two changes to the side which beat Bournemouth 2-0. James Ward-Prowse and Maya Yoshida come in.
