Goals galore and a record-breaking strike. The Premier League delivers again.

We've squeezed every bit of reaction out of today's games but there's still 45 minutes left in the evening kick off. It's half time at the Etihad where Manchester City have somehow failed to score against Tottenham.

Follow the second half over here and I'll be back tomorrow. See you then!

Wayne Rooney: Goals from the Man Utd record-breaker
BBC Sport picks out some great goals from Wayne Rooney's Manchester United career after the striker became the club's all-time leading goalscorer.

'We are in a position we deserve'

West Brom 2-0 Sunderland

West Bromwich Albion

West Brom midfielder Darren Fletcher: "We were in the ascendancy, especially in the first half. We were dominant and were quite comfortable. The second half was quite scrappy. You just have to see game out and we have done that.

"2-0 is a funny score. The game is not over by a long shot. We are better being safe than sorry and we got a clean sheet and the victory.

"Our form was been very good, if you take away the top six. We are in a position that we deserve to be in and we want to keep it going now."

Coleman: 'There's no better feeling'

Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton


Everton's match winner Seamus Coleman was delighted with his late winner: "Obviously it's good to score goals. I'm a full-back and obviously my job is to defend but there's no better feeling than to score.

"The message before the game was to build on last week's win against Manchester City so it was important to come here today and get back-to-back wins."

'We have too many draws'

Stoke 1-1 Man Utd

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, speaking with BBC: "I don't know if I can call it rescuing a point when we dominated for 70 mins and created chance after chance, De Gea doesn't make a save. I don't even know if I am happy because I am not happy. We played well enough to win the match. Sometimes it is important when you miss so many chances.

"I think Rashford and Lingard helped to give the team a different dynamic. I don't know how we missed so many chances. We work a lot but the reality is we are very offensive but don't score enough goals. We have too many draws. It is easy to say we deserve to win these but we need to score.

"It is important for him. It is an incredible achievement for his career to have Manchester United's record and one that belonged to a legend like Bobby Charlton. Now he is the man and he is a legend of Manchester United."

'We have to fight our way out'

West Brom 2-0 Sunderland


Sunderland defender John O’Shea: “We need to give ourselves a chance away from home. We knew second balls and set pieces are something West Brom are very strong at. 

"We could have avoided the goals. They took them well but the creation, we could have done better

“We have to start keeping clean sheets. We had plenty of possession maybe not clear chances but clean sheets will be key for us. If you’re needing three goals to win away from home it will be a big ask.

“It is about us sticking together dig out results. We can defend better as a team but we are not showing it. We have to fight our way out, we have done it in the past.”

'We need to be better at the back'

Bournemouth 2-2 Watford


Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe told BBC Sport: "It's a strange one for us, as we played so well in patches. They showed great character to bounce back. The goals we conceded were soft from our perspective, ours were great but it's frustrating to give cheap ones away.

"We worked so hard for the goals, but we need to be better at the back for sure."

'We are getting the team we want'

Bournemouth 2-2 Watford


Walter Mazzarri told BBC Sport: "I'm disappointed as we deserved to win but made two mistakes and paid the price. But overall, I am happy with the performance. 

"We've been playing with young players and a lot of them are growing. This is positive and we are slowly getting the team we want now.

When asked about Benik Afobe's equaliser, which was scored while Christian Kabasele was down injured, Mazzarri said: "I prefer to not comment on any refereeing decisions today."

"A chat with Manchester United's New all-time leading goal scorer Wayne Rooney for Match of the Day."

Koeman: We are winning beacuse we are 'more aggressive'

Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton


Everton manager Ronald Koeman was happy with Everton's late 1-0 win: "In my opinion it was well deserved, overall we were the better football team and had the best chances in the game.

"Normally if you don't take your chances the opposition might punish you, but we scored one and kept a clean sheet.

"Since our victory against Arsenal in December, we have changed our attitude. We are more aggressive and that is why I think we are winning."

Allardyce: 'We just didn't get the break'

Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce speaking to the BBC: "We contained a very good Everton team today, we just didn't get the break. We hit the bar and there goalie made a great save from a free kick. It was frustrating that Schlupp was injured and we couldn't get a sub on and the one player we had contained all day, Coleman, goes and scores. Also it looked suspiciously offside.

"I feel the referee should have blown the whistle. Our player was injured and that's a decision the referee should have made, I don't think it's the responsibility of the players.

"I think we are making improvements. The players are having to play to a different system. It's also a learning curve for me, getting to know each player. I have been here before, I wouldn't say I enjoy it, but with the help of my back room staff, we'll get out of this."

'Valdes one of world's best'

Middlesbrough 1-3 West Ham


Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka: "As a manager I cannot be more proud of my players than I am now.

"They have done every single thing.We win as a team, lose as a team. We have to work on the last 10, 15 minutes."

On whether keeper Victor Valdes was at fault for Andy Carroll's second goal: "Victor Valdes is having an amazing season, helping us a lot.

"He is one of the best keepers in the world and us as a club have to be proud to have plays like him."

'Looking forward to the next game'

Middlesbrough 1-3 West Ham

West Ham United

West Ham striker Andy Carroll, who scored twice before being substituted in the second half: "I didn’t train all week and had a couple of days off, so I didn’t want to risk anything.

"I'm all good, looking forward to the next game. The lads played well and the goal at the end to kill the game was fantastic."

'Carroll loves it'

Middlesbrough 1-3 West Ham

West Ham United

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: “It was a good week for us after Palace, the confidence we played with, and we used that momentum to come here and put out a strong performance and get three massive points.

“Week in, week out he (Andy Carroll) is a brilliant player. Not only goals. He makes an impact with his presence. His work rate is quality and he is unbeatable in the box. It is very hard to stop him.

“He loves it. He gives you everything. Hopefully he is going to stay fit.”

On Mark Noble’s injury: “We have to wait to see the results of a scan, to lose the skipper who is a leader and a mentor in the middle, he keeps the team in shape, it was a blow.

“It’s all about the squad."

Rooney on 'icon' Charlton

Wayne Rooney speaking about Bobby Charlton: "He's such an iconic figure, and has been for so long. When you sign for the club, you realise how important he is. To surpass him in goals is something I never thought I'd do. I have the utmost respect for him.

"He came and congratulated me in the dressing room so I know he's pleased in some way.

"I'm a team player but records are important. When you finish your career you can look back on it and it's something to tell your kids."

'We march on'

West Brom 2-0 Sunderland

West Bromwich Albion

West Brom manager Tony Pulis: "First half we played really well. In the second you have to give credit to Sunderland they had more of the game than they did in the first half.

“We have done very well. The players have really embraced what we are trying to do and the atmosphere was fantastic again.

“Darren Fletcher’s goal was fantastic and Chris (Brunt) has a wand of a left foot.  We are really pleased. We have a clean sheet in a game that was always going to be difficult game for us so we march on.”

On the departure of striker Saido Berahino: “We wish Saido all the best. I hope he does well at Stoke. They have taken a player who is a proven goal scorer.

“He needs to get his act together in respect to being footballer again. For a long time he has had lots in his head which has been difficult to handle.”

Goals conceded 'like a disease'

West Brom 2-0 Sunderland


Sunderland manager David Moyes speaking to BBC Sport: “We played better in the second than the first that is for sure. We are giving poor goals away and we are doing everything we can to eradicate it but it is a disease that we have got at the moment.

“(The first goal) was well executed by Darren Fletcher. We defended the original corner well but the ball was bobbling around and we didn’t clear it.

“We led to our own downfall but credit to the boys and credit to young George Honeyman who was our best player by a long way today. We can take some positives from the game.

“We are missing Lamine Kone at the back. He gives a steadying influence. This was always going to be a difficult period. We are making mistakes and I will take responsibility for that.

“We are not that far away (from safety). We have to keep going and hope our turn for results will come. We have given away two or three poor goals but our play is not particularly bad but goals change games.”

'Rooney record won't be surpassed'

Stoke 1-1 Man Utd

Stoke City

Stoke boss Mark Hughes, speaking to BBC Sport: "I didn't feel there was five minutes added on but that gave them enough time to get something out of the game. We are disappointed but we need to pick ourselves up. We were within seconds of beating a very good Manchester United team.

"My only criticism to the guys is that we didn't keep the ball long enough. We are good enough to do that but we needed more care to get up the other end of the pitch. But fair play to Man Utd they put on attacking players and made it hard for us to get out. Overall, the game well ebb and flow. In the end we tried to protect what we had and I can't criticise what we did for the free kick."

On Wayne Rooney's record: "It is an outstanding record and won't be surpassed. It has taken 40-odd years for Sir Bobby's record to be broken which shows how high a mark it was."

'A great servant to Man Utd'

Stoke 1-1 Manchester United

Sir Alex Ferguson told "I would like to say huge congratulations to Wayne on reaching this milestone. 

"It is no mean feat to score so many goals and he breaks a record that has stood for over 40 years. Wayne thoroughly deserves his place in the history books of this great club and I am sure that he will go on to score many more goals. 

"Well done Wayne, I am absolutely delighted for you, you have been a great servant to this club and long may it continue."  

'A true great for club and country'

Stoke 1-1 Manchester United


Sir Bobby Charlton has been speaking to Manchester United's official website about Wayne Rooney breaking his scoring record. Here's what he had to say:

"It’s over 40 years since I scored the last of my 249 goals for Manchester United, so I must admit that I have become used to the honour of being the club’s all-time top goalscorer!

"We have had some incredible strikers here at Old Trafford and they have scored a lot of goals, but it has been fairly obvious for a while now that Wayne Rooney was going to be the one likeliest to break my record, and now that day has come, I would be lying to say that I’m not disappointed to have lost the record. However, I can honestly say that I’m delighted for Wayne. He deserves his place in the history books.

"He is a true great for club and country, and it is fitting that he is now the highest goalscorer for both United and England. It has been great to watch him every week since his arrival at Old Trafford in 2004; he set the tone with a wonderful hat-trick on his debut and he has thrilled us all in the years since, going on to enjoy a hugely successful career.

"I was 35 when I retired. Wayne is only 31 and still going strong, so I don’t think he’s done by a long stretch yet. He continues to show that he can contribute goals, assists and performances whenever called upon, he will raise the bar even further before he calls it a day. Now he’s the man to beat, and I can’t see anybody doing that for a long, long time."

'Wayne Rooney becomes a legend'

Stoke 1-1 Manchester United

Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho speking with Sky Sports: "It was a big game with two teams in the beginning trying to win. But after 25 minutes one team tried to win and the other tried to defend, which they did amazingly well. They showed great work-rate and did everything to try and stop us. We did everything well expect in front of our target. 

"We missed unbelievable chances. We hit the post, the keeper saves, we miss chances and we have another draw. We have too many draws for the attacking play we produce. Opposition goalkeeper are always amazing against us.

"The record is the record. It is the record of the biggest club in England and one of the biggest in the world. Before him the record belonged to a legend of English football. Now Wayne becomes a legend of Manchester United."

Top of the Premier League


Here's how it looks at the top of the table ahead of Manchester City versus Tottenham.

'It's a great honour'

Stoke 1-1 Man Utd

Manchester United

Manchester United striker and now all-time record goalscorer Wayne Rooney: "It means a hell of a lot. It is a great honour and I am very proud. It is difficult at the minute to be over-pleased because of the result but in the grand scheme it is huge honour. It is not something I expected when I joined. As I said before, I am proud and I hope there is more to come. 

"The players who have played for this club have been world class. I am proud to play for this club. To be all-time goalscorer is a huge honour."

On the draw with Stoke: "It could be vital come the end of the season. It is no nice to lose and it looked like being the case. But we got a point that could be vital. There is a long way to go. A lot can happen. We have to keep picking up points."

Bournemouth 2-2 Watford

Bournemouth and Watford have never beaten each other in the Premier League.

Their previous three meetings have ended 0-0, 1-1 and 2-2, so it's a shame from a number geek's point of view that it wasn't 3-3 today.
