  1. Post update

    Brendan Rodgers

    Right, it is time for us to say goodbye. So whether you're heading to the pub, staying on the sofa with a bowl of nachos, picking the kids up from a party, whatever, make sure you keep glued to our Spanish-flavoured dish tonight.

    We will be back tomorrow when our Sunday service resumes. First on the menu is Liverpool's trip to QPR (13:30 BST) where Raheem Sterling will be the centre of attention on his return to the club where he started out as a kid. Then, Stoke and Swansea see the weekend home in the later game (16:00 BST). Make sure you're up and ready for our kick-off about 11:30 BST.

  2. MOTD running order

    Match of the Day

    It must have been a tough choice, but it looks like Southampton have beaten Manchester City into second place on the MOTD running order. But, then again, it's not every day you score eight, is it?

  3. A big win for Fulham

    Kit Symons

    Caretaker manager Kit Symons hailed the battling qualities displayed by his Fulham side after a 1-0 victory over high-flying Norwich brought them to within one point of climbing out of the Championship relegation zone.

    "They were not top of the table for no reason," Symons said. "At times we rode our luck. It was a display full of character which I was delighted with.

    "All the time I'm in situ in this position I'll just keep doing what I do. That's working as hard as I can on the training pitch and trying to win games for this great football club.

    "I'm pretty sure three points as often as possible is not going to hurt my chances. I'll just keep plugging away."

  4. Martin in the goals again

    Derby's Chris Martin scored another two goals in his side's 3-0 victory over Reading at the Madejski Stadium this afternoon, and manager Steve McClaren says the striker can fire his side all the way to the Premier League.

    The Rams are currently second in the Championship, and McClaren said: "With the talent that Chris has got around him, they'll create for him. He's just got to finish, which he's done.

    "He could have scored a hat-trick, he should be walking home with the ball. He got a lot of goals last season and there's always a question mark as to if he can continue that. But he's doing that. He's really developed over the last year in terms of his professionalism and belief."

  5. Watford go top

    Slavisa Jokanovic

    New Watford boss Slavisa Jokanovic believes his side are good enough to stay at the top of the Championship table following their comfortable 3-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

    Jokanovic said: "I am very happy. It is definitely a great day for us but this league is very tough so we have to try to improve and control games as well as we have today.

    "We can stay top of the league but it will be tough. It was important for us to have good offensive players today, but everyone defended brilliantly.

    "We played with three strikers today and they understood what we wanted, finding the gaps and playing very well. I am very happy and the team must be very happy."

  6. Post update

    Arsenal 2-2 Hull

    Former Leicester midfielder Robbie Savage on 606 for BBC Radio 5 live

    "When I speak to a few Arsenal fans, some say if they hadn't won the FA Cup last season would Arsene Wenger still be there? Everybody knows defensively Arsenal are lacking, so why on earth hasn't he brought anyone in? We, the fans, can see it. Add a centre-half and a defensive midfielder and they could be challenging for the lead.

    "The big question now is, can Arsenal get in the top four this year? Looking at who Manchester United have signed, have Arsenal been squeezed out of it? Arsenal certainly have no chance of winning the title."

    Martyn Seabourne: Obertan the miracle man! Is he what Newcastle fans call a goal machine now?

    Seany Ekon: Another Arsenal game lost at the expense of no defensive central midfielder. To have Flamini starting is criminal. Spurs, City, Hull at home, he has cost us.

    Jamie Smith: People were writing off the Saints before the season, but they've been outstanding so far. Definitely, top six is on the cards.

  8. Post update

    Arsenal 2-2 Hull

    Former Everton winger Kevin Kilbane

    Final Score

    "For a team with a so-called lesser squad Hull gave it a right good go against Arsenal today. Alexis Sanchez played well for Arsenal but overall they did not defend well enough, which has been typical of them over the past two or three seasons."

  9. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Chelsea

    MOTD's Guy Mowbray at Selhurst Park

    Final Score

    "The scoreline does suggest it was close, but Crystal Palace's consolation goal came out of nothing and too late to really give us an exciting finish. Chelsea were passing it around beautifully, and the second goal, by Cesc Fabregas, really is something to see. Jose Mourinho described it as a scandal of a goal; that is how good it was."

  10. Post update

    Talking of Barcelona that leads me into a seamless link back to Premier League reaction. How? Because ex-Barca players Alexis Sanchez and Cesc Fabregas, who both left the Nou Camp this summer, have been impressing our BBC Sport pundits....

    See if Messi can break that record tonight (and if he doesn't then it will fall in the next few weeks) by saying 'Hola' to our European live text commentary. The match - a real David v Goliath clash - has just kicked off at the Nou Camp.

  12. Magical Messi

    Barcelona genius Lionel Messi has surpassed so many milestones that he could have an entire programme of 'Record Breakers' dedicated to his achievements. Someone give Cheryl Baker a call to see if she's free.

    And tonight the Argentine could break another. He will become the all-time La Liga leading goalscorer if he nets a hat-trick against minnows Eibar tonight. Sound like an outside chance? Don't bet against it...

    Burnley 1-3 West Ham

    Former Leicester midfielder Robbie Savage on 606 for BBC Radio 5 live

    Burnley 1-3 West Ham

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

    Final Score

    "Sam Allardyce should have a hell of a party tonight. He has brought in flair players, Stewart Downing has a new lease of life, and his team is playing the attacking football that the West Ham fans have been wanting to see."

  16. Birthday cheer for Big Sam

    Sam Allardyce

    Earlier we told you that Sam Allardyce was having a big 60th birthday bash somewhere in the north-west tonight - and those pie and peas will taste even sweeter for the West Ham boss. His side continued their fine start to the season with a fairly straight-forward 3-1 win at Burnley.

  17. League One update

    Sheffield United lead at Bradford in League One's Yorkshire derby. Bob Harris's strike separates the two sides - with Bradford down to 10 men after Stephen Darby was dismissed for a second bookable offence. Follow the closing stages here.

  18. Player reaction on Twitter

    West Ham goalkeeper Adrian: Well done boys. Excellent three points away! Amazing support of 3000 great West Ham fans!See you Saturday at Upton Park.

    Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone: Tough game today. So close to hanging on for three points but a point at a team fighting for top four is a great result nonetheless.

    Hull defender Curtis Davies: Incredible effort from the lads today! Very disappointed to concede so late but it's always a good point at the Emirates!

  19. "I hope Warnock gets what is coming to him"

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Chelsea

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

    Final Score

    Neil Warnock

    "I don't think Neil Warnock or any manager has the right to tell his players whether or not to shake the referee's hand. For a manager to go on the pitch and do that is disgusting.

    "I hope Warnock gets what is coming to him, which is a disrepute charge. The manager should be taking the lead on behaviour of his players."

  20. Player reaction on Twitter

    Everton midfielder Ross Barkley: No better feeling than getting back out there today.

    Hull goalkeeper Stephen Harper: Gutted to come off today but proud of all the lads for a fantastic performance. Tough place to go and we very nearly hung on for all three pts!

    Chelsea defender Filipe Luis: Three more points to keep us on top of the table! Now focus on the Champions League!

    Newcastle 1-0 Leicester

    As if you're not pleased enough by clinching your first Premier League win of the season, the appearance of your larger-than-life chairman in the dressing room can only make things even better. And a post-match visit from Mike Ashley is exactly what the Newcastle players got.

    "He's happy. I know both Mike and myself take a lot of criticism but we love it. He loves the club and was desperate to win. He wanted to express that to the players and I thank him for that," said Magpies boss Alan Pardew.

    Wonder if Ashley handed over a £50 Sports Direct voucher apiece for their efforts?

  27. Lennon's red card

    Neil Lennon

    New Bolton manager Neil Lennon was sent to the stands during his side's 1-0 victory over Birmingham, after trying to change his penalty taker for a spot-kick which was subsequently missed.

    Lennon, speaking to The Bolton News, claims he wanted Jay Spearing to take the penalty, rather than Craig Davies who eventually stepped up and missed.

    "I got sent off because she (fourth official Amy Fern) said I was consistently leaving my technical area," Lennon said. "What I wanted to do was get the message on to Jay Spearing to take the penalty.

    "By all accounts Craig has scored the last three but I wanted a technical player to go up and take it, put his foot through it and put the game beyond doubt.

    "In the end he's blasted it over the bar against an outfield goalkeeper. That tells me our game management needs to be a lot better."

    Southampton 8-0 Sunderland

    Matthew Coles: Man City lost 8-1 at Middlesbrough. A couple of seasons later they won the Premier League. Now, I'm not saying anything, but as a Sunderland fan, this result has got me excited.

    Dan Atkinson: I don't want to discredit Southampton's performance, but their man of the match was the entire Sunderland team. At least Five goals were self-inflicted. Got to laugh really.

    Jamie Warriar: Emphatic. Would love to see Southampton finish top four or even top six! Brilliant entertainment since they arrived back in the Premier League. And people said they'd be relegated with all the players they sold. Good luck to them.

  29. Post update

    Southampton 8-0 Sunderland

    Former Leicester midfielder Robbie Savage on 606 for BBC Radio 5 live

    "I'm one of many people who, at the start of the season, thought Southampton would struggle. I hold my hands up now. Well done to Ronald Koeman, who of course just received Manager of the Month."

  30. Post update

    Southampton 8-0 Sunderland

    Former Leicester midfielder Robbie Savage on 606 for BBC Radio 5 live

    "If I was captain of that Sunderland team, on the way home I'd been saying to the squad I want a significant part of the players' wages from today to be paid back to the travelling fans who made that 700 mile round trip. An 8-0 defeat? Unacceptable.

    "That's the worrying thing, the effort of the Sunderland players. You can accept defeats as a fan as long as you can see their effort. If there was none, that's a worry.

    "A big defeat, such as one I once experienced at Derby, can make you not want to play. It's vital Sunderland make sure this is a one-off, because you do not want to gain a losing momentum."

    Leicester boss Nigel Pearson says the hour's delay to kick-off did not have a negative effect on his players.

    Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: "You could look at the game and say their best opportunities came from our set plays or on the counter attack, so you could say we were unlucky in some ways but we had enough chances ourselves and our qualities let us down really.

    "It's not a case of making excuses, we had enough opportunities today against a side who have been under pressure themselves but we didn't find a way through.

    "I suppose one of the things we take from any game is to say that we are capable of competing, we have good players, but our game management could be better."

  35. Player reaction

    Newcastle 1-0 Leicester

    Leicester skipper Wes Morgan: "Is defeat hard to take? Absolutely. The first half was pretty even and in the second half we were starting to turn the screw and pile on the pressure. So to concede from our attack is hard to take.

    "We had the corner, had the second phase as well but they won back the ball and, credit to them, they took the most of it. But it's hard to take."

    Harry from Leicester: If that's how they'll play all season, Newcastle are going down. Pitiful.

    Ian: So Southampton sell around £100m of talent, buy cheap, yet continue to impress while playing good football... but some people (Richard at 1732) still won't let them be praised and have to bring administration up? Petty and pathetic.

    "Newcastle have escaped with a 1-0 win, but there's still an awful lot of work to be done. Defensively they still weren't great, but for Newcastle fans the most important thing was the three points. They get you closer to the teams above you that are yet to play.

    "It's not the greatest of performances but the goal was a decent hit, having hit Leicester on the counter-attack. A good goal. Newcastle needed that win with some tough games coming up, against the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool."

    "We had a real focus and intensity to defend well. Overall, we worked extremely hard to keep Villa quiet in front of goal. It was a very clever performance and an important one. It's a special feeling after the way we lost at Manchester United.

    "Today was a really strong team performance, which is pleasing when you come back from the international break.

    "We had to be patient with Ross Barkley. I didn't expect him to last as long as he did, but he got the tempo of the match very quickly. It's good to see him back."

    Ooooh, there's still time for a hearts in mouth moment as Leicester's Anthony Knockaert sees a shot blocked. But that's the last action as referee Martin Atkinson blows his whistle! Relief all around St James' Park, not least on the face of under-fire boss Alan Pardew.

    "At the start we played very well. We conceded an own goal whish is unique. We paid the price for everything that went wrong today because it was a difficult day.

    "The only thing we knew is we needed to not throw the game away as 3-0 was enough. I learned a lot about the players today - the bad side as some gave up and I know who they are for the future.

    "I cannot watch it again because it's not a lot to analyse. We were a difficult team to play before today but it was totally the opposite. As a group we didn't show the character to be on the pitch. We were really poor and unacceptable in the second half."

    Alex Wood: I have been a Saints fan my whole life and I think this is our best ever league win.

    Firstly, with respect to Sunderland, they not only forgot to turn up but they didn't even get out of bed this morning. Secondly, the drive of Mr Koeman to keep pushing when already 4-0 up sums up the difference between this season and last season.

    Lastly, the ins have outweighed the outs. Despite the doom and gloom predictions, the board's intent was sealed when appointing Koeman. If you want to sell why would you hire a manager of his calibre? His cloth was cut as a player at Barcelona and in Holland. He's had success at Feyenoord as a manager and it's clearly rubbed off on the players.

    "Look at the shots on goal; how many times did they come into our half? They defended well and we made it difficult for ourselves by giving them a second goal. Sometimes the team that takes the initiative doesn't win. We tried our best and we can only look at ourselves.

    "We have conceded too many goals and we have to look at ourselves defensively. Some other teams have bought many defenders and concede goals as well. I think it's a matter of concentration.

    Newcastle have leaked 14 goals in seven Premier League matches so far - and it is easy to see why. Their back four are all over the place as they are caught out by a long ball from the Leicester midfield. Dave Nugent clips in a cross from the right but it is an inch or two behind Jamie Vardy. He can't flick goalwards and the home side survive.

    Now we have a game on our hands folks. Leicester press forward in search of an equaliser, which leaves Newcastle able to pick them off on the break.

    "It'll been fascinating to see what Newcastle do now. Do they sit on this lead, or do they go for a second one?"

    Newcastle 1-0 Leicester - Gabriel Obertan

    Gabriel Obertan celebrates

    And here is the magic that we craved! Gabriel Obertan skips in from the left flank, hurdling three lazy Leicester challenges, before drilling low into the bottom corner. That is only the Frenchman's second Premier League goal for the Magpies - and it is great timing for Alan Pardew.

    "It's the same old same old from Newcastle. There's a total lack of creativity in the middle of the park. Not one player can see the bigger picture, or what movement there is in front of him."

    Newcastle 0-0 Leicester

    Obertan is lurking again, this time swapping roles with Cisse, who tries to find his team-mate on the right wing. Luckily for Leicester, Paul Konchesky is alert to cut out the bother. Little over 20 minutes left for someone to provide the bit of attacking magic that this game has seen disappear in a puff of smoke.

    Gabriel Obertan. Now there's a man who I thought had failed to live up to his Football Manager billing and sloped back to the depths of France's Ligue 1. Not so.

    Here he is, back in the Newcastle side, driving them forward as they look for their first Premier League win of the season. But the Frenchman is crowded out as he tries to pick out Papiss Cisse and Leicester win back possession.

    "I wouldn't say Arsenal defended woefully but there are big questions to be asked. Why is a team of Arsenal's' quality so deficient defensively? People will continue to ask. Arsene Wenger has a transfer window coming up to put it right, and it will be interesting to see if he does address it."

    Burnley 1-3 West Ham

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche: "We were dominant first half and created enough chances to go ahead. We went in at half-time feeling good, but the whole feeling is different afterwards and we didn't get going in the second half.

    "Goals change games and we saw that. From their point of view they are two quality goals with great crosses from out wide. The third one we conceded was a set-piece and that was disappointing.

    "The margins are tight and if keep working away and tidy a few things up around the edges we'll get that first win."


    Newcastle 0-0 Leicester

    Now it's Alan Pardew's turn to fling the tactical dice. He brings on young Spanish striker Ayoze Perez for Dutch midfielder Vurnon Anita. Not heard of Perez? Not many have other than Tenerife and Newcastle fans. A first Magpies goal would go down a treat any time in the next 30 minutes or so...

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho: "My team had a fantastic performance. From minute one we did what we wanted to do, have the ball, use the ball and control the game. After that comes the red cards. And 10 against 10 with the qualities we have was even easier for us.

    "The second goal was a scandal. It is unbelievably good! Against Burnley we scored a goal (Andre Schurrle) which I thought would be our goal of the season but this is just as good.

    "Against Palace it is never finished until the last seconds. They scored and the situation becomes dangerous for us.

    "I have no complaints for the red card. It was very far from me and my focus was not on if it was a red, it was on how to reorganise my team."

    "If Papiss Cisse tried to roll that in he'd have scored. Instead, he tried to hit it quickly. What was Leicester defender Paul Konchesky doing? It was an awful backpass that gave his keeper no chance, and it just illustrates the negativity Leicester have shown thus afternoon."

    Alan Pardew must have ran over a black cat on his way to the ground. The Newcastle boss watches Papiss Cisse round Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel but then sees him shank his effort - from a tight angle if I'm being generous - into the side netting. Not quite Ronny Rosenthal - but still....

    "Sometimes football is strange. I am disappointed for Gus Poyet because they played well at the beginning and had some good chances. It was an unlucky own goal and maybe at 2-0 they should have had a penalty but after that we deserved to win.

    "I am proud of the ambition of the team. They are always fighting for more and we need that. I am proud of everyone, even those on the bench because we have such a long season.

    "The clean sheet is important. We have a strong defence and a superb goalkeeper and you have to look at the attackers when we don't have the ball because it is superb organisation."

    Newcastle haven't had much luck recently and see another potential break evade them. Moussa Sissoko's shot from distance loops off a Leicester body to leave keeper Kasper Schmeichel scrambling as St James' Park collectively waits for the ball to drop into the net. But it doesn't. Instead they watch with open mouths as it lands on the wrong side of the post.
