    Alan Irvine

    West Brom manager Alan Irvine: "It's bitterly disappointing as we started the game pretty well and got ahead.

    "We made a couple of mistakes and people started getting nervous. When the equaliser came, I felt we could deal with that at half time.

    "But, the second goal then made our job even harder.

    "I thought the second half was very, very good and we deserved to get something out of that game."

  4. Manager reaction

    Leicester 1-3 Liverpool

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson: "It's frustrating as I think we played pretty well tonight.

    "I've got no complaints with the way the players conducted themselves, even with 10 men.

    "It becomes increasingly difficult to stay positive, but my job as manager is to continue working at what is a 'work in progress'.

    "Our run has been difficult and we haven't perhaps had the results our performances have merited."

  5. Post update

    How much would Christian Benteke be to buy in January? Not that he is for sale, but if Neil Warnock wanted to by a striker of that class, how much would he need?

  6. Manager reaction

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Aston Villa

    Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock speaking to BBC Sport: "I think if we had Christian Benteke we would have won comfortably and that is what we are looking for in January. We are just missing that quality at the front.

    "We do need that Benteke and they are hard to come by. Hopefully we can get one sooner rather than later.

    "I can't fault the lads and now we have to do it the difficult way and get points at some tough places. We didn't create enough in the box.

    "Sometimes you have to make your own luck and we didn't do that, although we huffed and puffed. We are shooting ourselves in the foot."

  7. No keeper? No worries

    It was an interesting night at Wrexham, where visiting Bristol Rovers played 50 minutes without a recognised goalkeeper in an eventful goalless draw.

    The visitors had five subs on the bench, but none of them were goalies. Therefore, defender Mark McChrystal moved into the visitors' goal after Steve Mildenhall's 42nd-minute exit with a knee injury.

  8. Manager reaction

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche: "I think the positives are the performance again, particularly in the first half.

    "Other than a really poor goal that we gave them, another good performance from us.

    "There's some really good signs in what we're doing and how we're moving forward."

  9. Player reaction

    Swansea 2-0 QPR

    Rob Green

    QPR goalkeeper Rob Green: "It's pleasing to make saves but the over-riding disappointment of defeat is greater than any personal achievements.

    "It's difficult now we are in December (having lost every away game) but every team we have played away from home is in the top half of the table, which shows the size of the task we've had."

    "Sometimes mud sticks and if people are criticising you, it can be hard to shake off.

    "We know he's a great keeper and it's really about his strength of character if he can pull himself through this."

    QPR manager Harry Redknapp speaking to Andy Gilles: "This is the third game running where we've conceded late away from home and it's taken it out of us.

    "Rob Green made a series of great saves and I thought our luck might be in to come away with a point the longer it went on at 0-0.

    "We wanted to keep some momentum after a home win on Saturday. You look at some of the results down the bottom tonight and it's hard.

    "We've got some home games coming up now which are vital to us."

    Christian Benteke

    Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert on the BBC: "We are unbeaten in four and have and won at a difficult place. Coming here was a massive result but I thought it was well deserved.

    "I thought it was a big, big performance. I have played with some world class strikers and Christian Benteke, if he keeps progressing, could be one of the best. The performance was massive for us.

    "We are up to 12th, we have had a lot of players out, so the progress is there. I understand the disappointment because Aston Villa are a huge, huge football club.

    "We were resolute."

  22. Post update

    West Brom 1-2 West Ham

    It was a case of close but no cigar for West Brom tonight. They dominated possession and had 23 shots on goal compared to West Ham's 11. However, only five of those were on target.

    Chris White: Football fans spend their hard earned cash to go to games, if they don't like something they have every right to complain.

  24. Reaction

    Burnley 1-1 Newcastle

    Newcastle manager Alan Pardew: "Absolutely delighted with that - we didn't play in the first half and Burnley had a lot to do with that. We didn't risk enough. We took risks in the second half and were a different class.

    "It's as good a point we've got all season. The pitch was difficult tonight - it was was slippery and slidy."

    Newcastle goalscorer Papiss Cisse:

    "The first half was very, very difficult. Before the second half the gaffer told the players they need to play. Well done for my team trying to play. The changes [substitutions that saw Remy Cabella and Steven Taylor come on] helped the team."

  25. Manager reaction

    Manchester United 2-1 Stoke

    Louis Van Gaal

    Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal: "It was not our best performance. We were not aggressive enough in the first half, we didn't keep our position on the pitch. I was not pleased at half time - and I told them. The second half was better, we created more chances but we need to score more goals.

    "Then Peter Crouch comes on, you know the long balls are coming and it is always difficult. But I'm pleased we held this result. The last few moments were not necessary but it is always like that. We have struggled until the end in the Premier League - it is common.

    "I'm happy with the result - tomorrow we have a Christmas party and it's important we can enjoy that."

    On Wayne Rooney and Angel Di Maria's injuries: "Wayne has a scan tomorrow and then we will know more. I'm pleased Di Maria's injury is not so heavy. We've got more players coming back and we can see a little more light in the tunnel."

  26. 'Burnley's a six-pointer'

    Swansea 2-0 QPR

    Harry Redknapp tells Sky Sports: "Our keeper was in good form and had to be. He's been outstanding for us. They are a good team and I like the way they play but we conceded late goals again and it cost us.

    "We had a good chance just before half-time and the longer it went on you think you might nick it.

    "We have got a massive game at home to Burnley on Saturday which is a real six-pointer. If we can get a win like we did last Saturday it will have been a good week."

    Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers: "It was a great victory, players were magnificent. We had to work very hard but our quality came through in the end.

    "We should have won in Europe. Three good performances. I have big trust in the players. We needed to pick up the standard again.

    "Steven Gerrard was rested last weekend with tonight in mind. When you rest a player people ask why. When you play them you are asked why aren't you resting them. The energy from being rested at the weekend gave him the energy to play tonight."

  34. Pearson's 'spat' with fan

    Leicester 1-3 Liverpool

    Leicester 1-3 Liverpool

    Leicester manager Nigel Pearson, speaking to BT Sport: "We can ill-afford to play any game with anything less than 11 v 11. Their third goal knocked the stuffing out of us. We have quality and commitment. We can't get downbeaten by tonight's result. We have to break the cycle we are in at the moment.

    "I had a spat with a fan towards the end. I don't know what they are looking at at times. If they cannot see the players are having a proper go maybe they need to stay at home. The players are giving everything. I will always look for the positives. It is very easy for people to look at what we are not good at.

    "I don't like the commitment of my players being questioned. If they honestly think they are not committed, they are very wrong. Maybe that is why I stay in the stand."

  35. Manager reaction

    Swansea 2-0 QPR

    Garry Monk told BBC Sport: "We had to stay patient but I thought it was one of our most complete performances of the season.

    "Their keeper had a fantastic game and you do think 'will it be our day?'

    "But I said to the players at half-time to stay patient and keep playing the same way and the chances will come.

    "They did and we killed it off with two good goals. The performance warranted a clean sheet and those two goals."

    Leicester 1-3 Liverpool - Jordan Henderson (83 mins)

    Game over at Leicester? Liverpool seemingly make sure of all three points, and Steven Gerrard is again at the heart of it all. The skipper sends in a dangerous, low cross from the left which takes a deflection off a defender and is parried by Kasper Schmeichel. However, Raheem Sterling latches onto the rebound and brilliantly backheels the ball into the path of Jordan Henderson who slots into an open goal.

    Not a great moment for Schmeichel there.

  94. GOAL

    Swansea 2-0 QPR - Wayne Routledge (83 mins)

    Wayne Routledge

    Fine finish, and that should be that. Wayne Routledge curls home low from 20 yards and that will wrap up the points for Swansea.

    Decent result for Burnley this. As it stands, they will climb out of the bottom three and be replaced in the relegation zone by Hull.

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    You wouldn't know Leicester are down to 10 men, they're giving it a real go as Jamie Vardy's cross is toed clear. Steven Gerrard, basically playing up front now, is then almost in on the counter attack. Could be a late goal either way in this one.


    West Brom 1-2 West Ham

    Andy Carroll's evening is over, the big man being replaced by the returning Enner Valencia up front. Carroll's duel with Joleon Lescott has been like something you'd see at Plough Lane in the early nineties. Two big, tough men scrapping it out.

    Peter Crouch

    "Stoke will probably go a lot more direct in this last 10 minutes, looking for Peter Crouch with high balls.

    "United will have to be strong here defensively as Marko Arnautovic comes on as well to offer them another option."

    Burnley 1-1 Newcastle

    A scare for Burnley as Danny Ings gets in behind the left-back and flicks the ball into the box, but there's nobody on hand to convert and Daryl Janmaat puts the ball out for a corner. That also comes to nothing.

  103. GOAL

    Swansea 1-0 QPR - Ki Sung-yueng (78 mins)

    Ki Sung-yueng

    Rob Green's resistance is finally ended by a fine Swansea goal! Wilfried Bony spins the pass out wide left to Ki Sung-yueng, he beats his man and flashes in a wicked cross-shot which thumps against the base of the post before bouncing into the net.

    Was it a cross? I can't decide. Swansea won't really care.


    Manchester United 2-1 Stoke

    Both sides make a change up front. Peter Crouch is on for Stoke, while Radamel Falcao replaces James Wilson for Manchester United. Standing ovation for Wilson's efforts.

    Steven Gerrard and Kasper Schmeichel are deep in conversation during a stoppage in play. Safe to say they don't agree on that penalty shout...

    West Brom 1-2 West Ham

    Andy Carroll is putting himself about a bit, showing no signs of the ankle problem that troubled him for the first three months of the season. He gets stuck into a tangle with West Brom centre-back Joleon Lescott a little too keenly, though, and receives a talking to from referee Mike Jones.

    Steven Gerrard is through again! One on one with Kasper Schmeichel, he tries to go round the Dane, there's contact - but no penalty given. Schmeichel gives Gerrard a dirty look. Was that a pen?

    Liverpool replace Adam Lallana with Joe Allen as sent-off Wes Morgan is finally turfed out of the dugout. He then tries to go and sit in the stands. Has he never been sent-off before? He doesn't know the protocol.

    "Shows great pace there James Wilson. Van Persie was screaming out for him to square the ball to him, but he kept his head down and got a shot away.

    "He showed a great bit of confidence on the ball for the first time."

    Manchester United 2-1 Stoke

    James Wilson

    The best moment yet from United teenager James Wilson as he skips away from two defenders, opens up on the goal but slams his shot into the side-netting. Lovely run, showing a real burst of pace. Into the last 20 minutes.

    It looks like being a long, hard road back into the game from here for Leicester. They reorganise at the back as Liam Moore replaces Jeff Schlupp.

    Wes Morgan is sitting on the bench. That's not allowed is it? He should be back in the dressing room. Kevin Phillips then aborts the sub after all - Moore is sent back!

  127. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Aston Villa

    Better from Palace as Fraizer Campbell beats five men to slalom into the box. Play is eventually spread wide to Yannick Bolasie, who swings in a cross and Marouane Chamakh heads wide.

    "Wes Morgan was found caught out in a rare moment when Rickie Lambert was given the ball with an opportunity to run.

    "No hesitation from referee Lee Mason who produced the card moments after the foul."


    Burnley 1-1 Newcastle

    Bad news for Burnley as Stephen Ward is stretchered off with a painful-looking injury to his lower leg. Ben Mee will be his replacement.

  131. RED CARD

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool - Wes Morgan

    Wes Morgan

    Wes Morgan has had an absolute nightmare. He teed up Steven Gerrard for his goal, and is now sent off for hauling down Rickie Lambert just inside his own half. He lost out to Lambert on the sideline, the striker toes it away and goes down as Morgan puts a hand on him. He was a long way from goal, but a clear foul.

    I feel bad now for saying that Morgan may get the winner [18:49].

    Manchester United 2-1 Stoke - Juan Mata (59 mins)

    Terrible defending. Stoke have been done by two big balls into the box, Mark Hughes and Ryan Shawcross will be furious. Juan Mata takes the free-kick from wide on the right, inswinging, Marcos Rojo goes up for the header but doesn't get a touch and the ball drifts into the net.
