'One of Fabregas' best games'

Bournemouth 1-4 Chelsea

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink: "We're very pleased with the performance, especially in the second half. It was a very open, entertaining game, Bournemouth have a very good build up and create good chances. We made some changes at half-time and after that we were very dominant. It was good discipline and good to see some players who have been absent recently, scoring goals."

On Cesc Fabregas:"He is one of the few players who has this vision, he knows he can execute what he's creating and he's very effective. I think this was one of his best games for us. But there has to be a good balance of players around him in the team."

Manager reaction

Bournemouth 1-4 Chelsea

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "It was an even game, certainly for the first half I thought we were terrific - the difference between the sides was how they finished their goals. We created a number of chances but didn't have their clinical edge. Second half, they were better and I thought their attitude to the game was spot on, that's why it ended up being such a high quality game. They counter attack very well and caused us problems. We looked dangerous, but the speed of the counter attacking and the quality they showed was very high.

"The beauty of our run-in, which is so tough on paper, is that we're learning all the time. We're still finding our feet at this level, they've been harsh lessons for us but hopefully we'll come out of it a better team."

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle: Liverpool denied 'clear penalty' - Klopp
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Daniel Sturridge was denied a clear penalty during their 2-2 draw against Newcastle.

League Two results

York City have been relegated from League Two. They lost 3-0 at Accrington meaning they can no longer catch Newport.

At the other end of the table, the battle to join Northampton in gaining promotion remains tight. Accrington are second, one point ahead of Oxford United - who beat Hartlepool 2-0. In fourth and just one point behind Oxford are Bristol Rovers, who beat Exeter 3-1.

Manager reaction

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

Aston Villa caretaker-manager Eric Black, speaking to BBC Sport: “We created more chances. We had two or three chances, and if we’d taken them, we might have got something. But if we have to score five goals at home to win a game, then we’re going to be in for a tough challenge. We did get a response under difficult circumstances, but it wasn’t enough to win the game.

“We conceded poor goals that put us on the back foot. There was a response, and credit for that, but on the day it wasn’t enough.

“The fans are entitled to vent their displeasure. It’s not an ideal atmosphere, but it’s understandable, given the circumstances. We have to continue to be professional."

League One results

Wigan are on the verge of making an immediate return to the Championship after beating Southend 4-1. They are nine points clear of Walsall, who are joint third and, mathematically, could catch them with three games remaining. The Latics have a +12 goal difference on Walsall, however.

Meanwhile, Colchester were relegated after losing 3-0 at home to Burton.

Manager reaction

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman, speaking to BBC Sport: "Scoring four goals away from home is good but we conceded two and that is not like Southampton. We gave Villa the belief that they could get a better result. In the end, we were by far the better team. It was a good result finally, and we’re on to the next game.

"Scoring goals was not a problem today, but in general we have been missing too many opportunities away from home. That is why we are a little way behind the fifth and sixth positions in the table.

"It was difficult because it was a strange atmosphere - but even more so for the home team. It’s a shame that Aston Villa have been relegated because it is a great club and stadium. I hope they are back before too long."

Manager reaction

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez, speaking to Match of the Day: "My relationship with the [Liverpool] fans and club and city is good. It was very emotional at the beginning. Hopefully Liverpool can win the Europa League. Jurgen [Klopp] is doing a great job."

Championship full time

MK Dons' one-season stay in the Championship is over. They were relegated today after losing 4-1 at home to Brentford.

That means the relegation places are decided in that division with Charlton and Bolton also going down.

All the excitement is at the top of the division. Brighton beating Charlton 3-1 and Middlesbrough 0-0 draw with Ipswich means the Seagulls, Boro and Burnley are all level at the top on 87 points.

For all the results head here.

Manager reaction

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez, speaking to Sky Sports: "I'm really pleased because of the passion and fight they showed. We changed two or three little things but we were still working hard and believed we could do it. A draw is fine for us at the moment. 

"When you are bottom of the table and can still see this spirit and fight you have to be pleased. It's a bigger step for us because we can keep believing. every game now for us is massive. I have the Geordies and the Scousers on my side."   

Manager reaction

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking to Match of the Day: "It was a clear penalty on Daniel Sturridge. i don't know why the referee didn't use the whistle.

"There is nothing to criticise about attitude. Even when it was a draw I only saw chances on one side. Usually we should win a game in this situation but have to accept it. 

"Nobody understands why they [Newcastle] are in the relegation zone."

On defender Mamadou Sakho being investigated by Uefa after failing a drugs test: "We have made a statement and that's all we can say at this moment and want to say."


Here's how the bottom of the table looks at the moment. It could prove to be a big point for Newcastle come the end of the season.

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic: “I think it doesn’t matter who scores goals and who provides assists; it matters that we won the game.

“Villa were pushing for a second goal, but it was a nice goal from Shane and it really killed them off.

“It’s nice to have Jay Rodriguez back. He’s a nice guy and a good player.”

Manager reaction

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking to Sky Sports: "No, I'm not angry. It doesn't feel like we won a point. It feels like we have lost it. It's not our best day.

"It was an intensive game. Newcastle had two shots and two goals. We had a few more shots and could have scored more goals but didn't and have to take what we can get."

Player reaction

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

Southampton forward Shane Long: “I thought it was a good performance. We could have scored a lot more. We’re happy with our performance.

“I thought we dominated the game for a long time in the first half but then they put us under pressure. We had the quality to score a few more and we did.

“We’re going for nine points out of our last three games, and we hope other results go our way and we get into Europe.”

Player reaction

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana, speaking to Match of the Day : "We were playing with confidence, maybe a bit too confident. [Scoring] means nothing when you don't get three points. We've been in good form lately and we see this as a minor blip."

Player reaction

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

Jack Colback applauds

Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback to Sky Sports: "It's a good point for us. Each one counts. At half-time we said we had to keep going and keep believing. We've been in positions like that this season where we've gone on and lost. But the belief is there and everyone working hard to for one another."

Remember Morecambe losing 7-0 in midweek at Cambridge? They've shipped in another three today and currently trail Stevenage 3-1 in the closing stages.

Biggest surprise of the day? Dagenham & Redbridge, relegated to the National League, leading promotion-chasing Plymouth 3-2.

Think Liverpool are getting confused with Rafa there. 2-0 up at HT & letting Newcastle make an Istanbul style comeback.

Andy Tullock, London

Why didnt Coutinho start? He's been clinical and scored goals in the last few games, personally think hes a key player for Liverpool to get goals and win


Liverpool are so inconsistent, we're inconsistent at being inconsistent. If that makes any sense.

Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

The hosts have a corner now, though. Three minutes left...

Bournemouth 1-3 Chelsea

Chelsea want more goals. It's attack after attack with Diego Costa twice being given the chance to add to the scoreline with passes from Eden Hazard, but both his efforts are off target.
