  2. Manager reaction

    West Brom 0-3 Tottenham

    Spurs' manager Mauricio Pochettino: "I'm very pleased and very proud, it was a great performance, we played one of our best games since the beginning of the season.

    "This was a challenge, it's always difficult when you've gone to a final in difficult conditions and then be ready to play a tough side like West Brom. The key was to be focused, keep our concentration and our character was excellent."

  3. Manager reaction

    Stoke 2-1 QPR

    Stoke City manager Mark Hughes:

    "We allowed them back in because at 2-0 up we were comfortable. With the wind and the conditions they had a real go in the second half.

    "Jon Walters was the star man and is a key player for us. He gives everything in every game and is a credit to his profession. It was his 200th game today and to get a hat-trick it is special for him.

    Ryan Shawcross was taken off with a back injury

    "Ryan Shawcross has had a back spasm but it was clear he was incapacitated and we had to bring him off."

  4. Transfer deadline looming

    West Brom manager Tony Pulis talking to Match of the Day:

    "We are trying and we need to fill one or two areas, we have to give us a chance in the last 15 games. We need one or two."

  5. Player reaction

    Liverpool 2-0 West Ham

    Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge: "It's an amazing feeling to be back playing and to help the team get three points. That's what matters the most, the team. Philippe Coutinho made my job easy. That's what he is best at, amazing assists and runs. In football players get injuries sometimes, but that's what the game is about. I'm grateful to God to be able to come back and help the team get three points. I'm looking forward to helping the team push on."

    Liverpool 2-0 West Ham

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

    Final Score

    "Raheem Sterling's game is coming along very, very nicely. Before he was put into that central spot I thought his finishing was poor, but he seems to have come to terms with that now and if he gets things right, he can be anything he wants to be."

  9. Manager reaction

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton

    Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew:

    "We had enough possession and enough chances but couldn't find that bit of quality.

    "Going behind so early gave them something to sit on. They defended well, to be fair. You can't keep going behind because it's going to catch up with you and it did so today.

    "I couldn't have asked for more effort in the second half - they provided as much effort and commitment as you could hope for.

    "It's disappointing for our fans but they know and we know that there is a long way to go. We need to react well in the next game."

  10. Post update

    West Brom 0-3 Tottenham

    Danny Murphy

    Match of the Day pundit on 5 live Sport

    Harry Kane

    "Harry Kane and Daniel Sturridge could form an England partnership. Kane is the most in-form England striker in the league by a long way. Today, Tottenham played some really good stuff, Eriksen was good again and Spurs weren't a static side. But credit to the keeper, who made some terrific saves at crucial times. And the difference was a superb free-kick from Eriksen and an excellent finish from Kane."

  11. Manager reaction

    Man Utd 3-1 Leicester

    Louis van Gaal

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "I'm very happy because of the positive result. We lost the last home match so we had to show to our fans that we are coming back again.

    "I liked my team in the first half. In the second half we tried to kill the game because we know what happened at Leicester when we were also 1-3 ahead and we lost the game.

    "But in the second half we played the ball too much backwards, and I do not like that as you always need to keep your eyes open for the pass forward. But we also have to learn to kill the game, we may have done that more than we wanted, but it is a learning process."

  12. Manager reaction

    Man Utd 3-1 Leicester

    Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: "It was a difficult game for us. We are playing against a very good side, to concede three goals in a really short space of time put us up against it.

    "The first goal is offside but I can't complain too much as we were beaten by a very very good side.

    "In the second-half we have at least shown a bit more resilience and managed the ball a bit better. I think that was our problem in the first half.

    On the next game against Crystal Palace: "Those are the games that are going to define our season, not necessarily games against the likes of Manchester United."

  13. Manager reaction

    Sunderland 2-0 Burnley

    Sunderland boss Gus Poyet talking to Match of the Day:

    "It was much needed. We knew Burnley would be hard-working. First and foremost we needed to match that, and we did. Then we needed to impose ourselves with quality.

    "The players on the pitch knew how important it was. We don't need to think we are ok - we need to go to the next level.

    "I knew that Jermain would score sooner or later because his qualities are there. I want this to be a turning point. I hope we will go into the next game with the confidence we were looking for."

  14. Manager reaction

    Sunderland 2-0 Burnley

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche talking to Match of the Day:

    "The first half, the players know and I know that you can't give away chances at this level. Credit to Sunderland, two good goals from their point of view but two soft goals for us.

    "The lads have got total belief in what they do. We're trying to create, but we still need to find that quality at key moments. These are key reminders that you have to do everything right at this level."

    Danny Ings

    On striker Danny Ings: "He's a young man and a lot has happened in the last 48 hours. Speculation builds and people leak stories to the press. I must give Danny credit, he's dealt with it. Next week he'll be back with his team mates and he'll be full of beans again."

  15. Post update

    Sunderland 2-0 Burnley

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Poyet and Defoe for Sunderland

    Sunderland boss Gus Poyet on 5 live Sport: "I have a mixture of happiness and relief. We needed a performance and a victory like today, so it was very welcome. We knew Burnley and the situation we were in, so we needed to be very good with commitment, desire and a fighting spirit. And we needed to impose our quality, and when we did we created the chances. We kept a clean sheet and the two strikers who started today scored, so it's a perfect result for us."

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers on 5 live Sport: "It's been a really difficult time for Daniel Sturridge but a wonderful touch and finish, and a great goal for him. He's been working so hard. And I thought Sterling, Lallana and Countinho were all excellent today, and my two central defenders were strong. Overall, it was a wonderful team performance and another clean sheet."

    Jonathan Walters of Stoke with the match ball

    Stoke's hat-trick hero Jonathan Walters on 5 live Sport: "I've left my match ball in the changing room. A great result for us today, and it wasn't a pretty game as a whole. The conditions here were very windy and the pitch was boggy. We gave away a sloppy goal and for a while our backs were against the wall, but all over the pitch we were excellent and we competed for every ball. And now we move on up the league.

    "I think I'll get that match ball signed by all the players with a few little messages, and then I'll take it home and it'll probably end up in some cupboard somewhere!"

    Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro's 77th minute strike gave Shrewsbury a 1-0 win at Newport County to keep his side top of the table - ahead of a hard-chasing Burton Albion on goal difference.

    Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's Burton, who have not lost at home this season, bagged a 1-0 win over Bury at the Pirelli Stadium thanks to Phil Edwards' second-half goal. They stay level on points with the Shrews.

    At the bottom, last-placed Hartlepool hung on for a 3-2 win over play-off hopefuls Plymouth Argyle, who are without a win in six games, but still remain seven points off safety.

    League One review

    Devante Cole scored a brace as MK Dons thrashed Crewe Alexandra 5-0 to leapfrog Swindon and become the new league leaders. Dean Bowditch, Devante Cole and Daniel Powell got the other goals.

    Swindon not only lose top spot, but slipped out of the automatic play-off places after going down 2-0 against a Sheffield United side that pushed Premier League Tottenham all the way in their League Cup semi-final in midweek.

    Meanwhile, Crawley Town, who had gone 14 matches without a win, shocked promotion-chasing Preston North End with goals from Lee Fowler and Anthony Wordsworth securing a 2-1 win to move off the foot of the table.

    Some more breaking transfer news as Stoke City boss Mark Hughes confirms that defender Robert Huth is having a medical at Leicester.

    QPR's Harry Redknapp says he's not confident of bringing anyone in at the moment but will continue working until the end of the transfer window - surely there will be some late transfer drama for Harry?

    BBC Radio 5 live's John Murray at Stamford Bridge

    "It really does feel like the stakes are very high indeed here at Stamford Bridge, we've seen a number of mistakes from both sides already. Manchester City have had two clear chances so far, Fernandinho with the best of them when his shot was deflected wide of the Chelsea goal."

    West Brom 0-3 Tottenham

    Hugo Lloris tells the BBC's Alan Green of his hopes for prolific Spurs striker Harry Kane, who grabbed goals number 19 and 20 of the season today.

    "When you're from the academy, you always get support from the fans. He works hard, wants to improve and he has a great mentality. I hope he gets a chance for the national team, he has a great future for Tottenham if he keeps up with his mentality."

    "I think Louis van Gaal will be most pleased with his countrymen. Daley Blind was superb, with two assists. And his forward, Robin van Persie, looked very good. But United are still not the finished article. It's OK, you can see the improvements, but there are more improvements to be made."

    Man Utd 3-1 Leicester

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal on Darren Fletcher's collapsed move to West Ham:

    "I thought Darren was going to sign a contract. But at the end they look for a loan and that was not the agreement.

    "I'm only listening to what is now said by West Ham United.

    "I think so (he will remain a man utd player). He is my third captain so it is not a problem for me. Manchester United just want to help him play more. For him now that is a big pity."

    Daniel Sturridge

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers tells BBC Sport: "Daniel Sturridge is a top class player, he has shown that in his career so far. He worked very hard and the first opportunity that came his way he took. It was a wonderful pass by Philippe Coutinho.

    "We were obviously disappointed in midweek with the result at Chelsea in the Capital One Cup. We knew coming into today it was going be a tough game. West Ham have done great this season, but we had to win the battle and compete, fight and press. My players did that magnificently well. Maybe we could have had more than two goals."

    More from Manchester United's Daley Blind:

    On his assist: "I heard Robin van Persie screaming and I chipped it over and he scored it nice.

    "The runs of the strikers are very important, without that we have less options to give the ball."

    On playing in midfield: "I enjoyed today. I got some space to switch the play and pass forward.

    "For me it doesn't matter where I play, I can play in both positions. I prefer a little bit in midfield but if the trainer needs me to play on defence then I can do that."

  37. Player reaction

    Man Utd 3-1 Leicester

    Manchester United's Daley Blind: "We are pleased with the result. We tried to keep possession and create chances from that. We were the better team, keeping possession and scoring goals. Once you score the first goal the other team has to do something.

    "We played a good game with a lot of patience and ball possession. The first-half was very good, in the second-half maybe we had too much patience. But we tried to kill the game with possession and create chances from that.

    "We come closer every week to the way Louis van Gaal wants us to play. We are on the right track and we are happy.

    "Of course you want a clean sheet but 3-1 at home, we played a good game and it is a good result."

    Championship review

    Title-chasing Derby move level on points with league leaders Bournemouth as an own goal from Scott Malone and a strike from leading-scorer Chris Martin gave Steve McClaren's side a comfortable 2-0 win against a Cardiff team that are slipping towards the drop zone.

    At the foot of the table, Blackpool, who were rolled over 7-2 at Watford last weekend, secured a valuable 1-0 win over a Brighton side that gave Arsenal a scare in the FA Cup last weekend, thanks to Jamie O'Hara's left-footed strike. Lee Clark's side are still nine points off safety.

    Ricardo Fuller's late strike gave fellow strugglers Millwall a 1-0 win against a Nottingham Forest side that have lost six of their last seven games in all competitions. Ian Holloway's side need two more points to move out of the relegation zone.

    "The performance was just what was needed. It's a great feeling for the players. I hope that today can be a real kick-start in our season.

    "We created the best chances of the game. I thought we defended extremely well, it wasn't a fortunate win.

    Is Steve Bruce another manager under pressure? They've failed to score in ten of their last fourteen games and gave John Carver his first win as Newcastle manager today.

    It's always difficult to be honest when you've had a long break. But I've had a mini-pre-season and I'm getting sharper and sharper.

    Flying stop from Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni to keep out Aiden McGeady's left-footed shot from the right. Everton close to only a second clean sheet on the road in the league this season.

  73. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom 0-3 Tottenham

    There will be no hat-trick for Harry Kane as the Tottenham striker is replaced by Roberto Soldado for the final few minutes. "Harry Kane, he is one of ours" is the chant that rings out from the away end. They absolutely love him.

  74. GREAT SAVE!

    Stoke 2-1 QPR

    Stoke surprisingly opt to not to make a wall for a QPR free-kick 25 yards out. Leroy Fer steps up and smashes the ball towards goal but goalkeeper Asmir Begovic does well to fling himself to his left and turn the ball wide.

    This game has opened up after that Leicester goal as Marc Albrighton sends a dipping effort just over the bar for the visitors before Angel Di Maria brings a high ball under control and, with just Mark Schwarzer to beat, hooks his shot well over the goal. You get the feeling there is at least one more goal in this.

    "I think Brendan Rodgers deserves a real pat on the back.

  85. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Stoke 2-1 QPR

    Almost a leveller for QPR and what a goal it would have been. Joey Barton stands over a free-kick 20 yards out, but his brilliant effort rebounds off the woodwork. It looks like Asmir Begovic got a very important fingertip to the ball.

    Man Utd 3-0 Leicester - Wes Morgan OG (44 mins)

    Wes Morgan scores an own goal

    Surely game over at Old Trafford as Manchester United add a third. This time, Daley Blind heads on a corner and Leicester's Wes Morgan can do little as it hits him on the head and deflects into the back of the net. It is all too easy and United are going up to third as things stand.

    League Two

    Promotion-chasing Luton Town haven't lost at home in the league since early September and look like maintaining that record with Andrew Drury firing them into a 1-0 lead against Cambridge - who held Manchester United to a 0-0 draw in the FA Cup.

    Play-off hopefuls Plymouth Argyle are without a win in six games and fell behind on their 700-mile round trip to struggling Hartlepool, but Ryan Brunt has cancelled out Jonathan Franks' opening strike to make it 1-1.

    Leaders Wycombe are being held 0-0 at home by Portsmouth.

    Blow for Stoke as central defender Ryan Shawcross limps off to be replaced by Marc Muniesa. QPR might fancy their chances at getting at Stoke.

    Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown

    Final Score

    "QPR have got a goal back and you could say they are back in this but Stoke have been controlling things and QPR were quite fortunate with the goal really in the way it fell to Niko Kranjcar. Harry Redknapp is struggling to find a system that works at QPR and Kranjcar is just playing off the strikers."

    Liverpool 0-0 West Ham

    Liverpool continue to press but can't find the final touch. Raheem Sterling races down the left, cuts inside, but his shot is blocked by Adam Lallana. West Ham keeper kicks out at Philippe Coutinho but, fortunately for him, doesn't make contact.

    Daniel Sturridge will be itching to get involved on the substitutes' bench.

    Sunderland 2-0 Burnley

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks, Final Score

    "I don't think Burley have the financial resources to replace Danny Ings if he leaves. But if Burnley do go down, the manager will keep his job. At that club it's all about managing the finances."

  164. HITS THE WOODWORK

    West Brom 0-2 Tottenham

    West Brom have suddenly come to life and go closest to pulling a goal back when Craig Dawson rises to meet a James Morrison free-kick, but plants his header on the top of the crossbar. A goal for the Baggies before the break and things could get very interesting.

  165. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton

    Jason Puncheon with a fierce drive from 25 yards that Joel Robles turns around the post. Palace continue to dominate after falling behind in the second minute.

    Sunderland 2-0 Burnley

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks, Final Score

    "Defoe's going to score goals in this league, there's no doubt about it. And Gus Poyet's new signing has delivered - he has every reason to be delighted on the touchline."

  167. GOAL

    Stoke 2-1 QPR - Niko Kranjcar

    Niko Kranjcar scores

    QPR are back in it. Joey Barton does well on the right and squares to Charlie Austin in front of goal. The striker scuffs his shot but Niko Kranjcar is in the right place to tap home. Game on.

  168. CLOSE!

    Liverpool 0-0 West Ham

    Andy Carroll has already had an eventful return to Anfield after being at the centre of a couple of controversial challenges. The West Ham striker goes close to breaking the deadlock with a close range header that forces a save from Simon Mignolet.

    Stoke 2-0 QPR - Jonathan Walters

    Walters scores his second

    Where is QPR's defence? Jonathan Walters plays a one-two with Stephen Ireland, before slotting in his second goal of the game from the edge of the penalty area. Stoke are having a field day.

    Wayne Rooney congratulates Falcao

    "Radamel Falcao is claiming he had the last touch, although there may have been a deflection onto him from the Leicester defenders trying to clear it. Manchester United were in too easily there - there is just not enough pace in the Leicester back four. Leicester are going to have to come out and really play to get back into this. But they have done it before against United..."

    Liverpool 0-0 West Ham

    Andy Carroll is certainly making Liverpool aware he is around. This time Lazar Markovic goes down holding his face under the aerial challenge of the striker. Didn't look to be much in that.

  173. GOAL

    Man Utd 2-0 Leicester - Radamel Falcao (32 mins)

    Radamel Falcao celebrates

    Manchester United have burst into life and Radamel Falcao adds a second with the simplest of tap-ins. Robin van Persie charges at the Leicester defence before slipping the ball to Angel Di Maria, whose drive is swatted away by Mark Schwarzer, but Falcao is there to stab in.

    West Brom 0-2 Tottenham

    Signs of life at last from the hosts, with James Morrison's curling shot from just outside the box bringing a fine one-handed save out of Hugo Lloris, who then makes an even better stop low to his right to deny a close-range stab from Claudio Yacub.

    Robin van Persie celebrates

    "Robin van Persie was not offside, I don't think. All of Leicester's defenders stood stock still. Lovely play from Daley Blind in the build-up, who stole the ball before playing Van Persie in. And a great finish."

    League One

    Devante Cole's 12th minute strike has put MK Dons top of the league for the time being as they lead Crewe 1-0 at Gresty Road and Swindon are being held 0-0 at Sheffield United.

    Last-placed Crawley Town, who have gone 14 matches without a win, have taken the lead against promotion-chasing Preston North End thanks to Anthony Wordsworth's right-footed strike. they would move off the foot of the table as it stands.

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Just seconds after I suggested Manchester United weren't creating anything at all they go and score. But there are some looks of daggers being thrown by the Leicester defenders towards the assistant referee, and on the replay Robin van Persie looks well offside. Leicester were taking a chance with a high line and were caught, but I think it is offside."

  178. GOAL

    Man Utd 1-0 Leicester - Robin van Persie (27 mins)

    Robin van Persie scores

    This game had 0-0 at half-time written all over it until a lapse of concentration from Andrej Kramaric and a brilliant finish by Robin van Persie. Kramaric dithers in possession, Daley Blind steals the ball and clips a pass for Van Persie, who peels away from the defence and drives in.

  179. OUCH!

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton

    Chamakh receives treatment

    A delay in play at Selhurst Park as Marouane Chamakh is stretchered off after a clash of heads with Seamus Coleman leaves the Palace striker with a bloody nose.

    Bad luck for Chamakh, who was making his first league appearance for six weeks, as he can't continue and new signing Jordon Mutch comes on to make his debut.

  180. CLOSE!

    Stoke 1-0 QPR

    Almost a stunner from Victor Moses for Stoke. He bends a 25-yard free-kick towards goal but it just goes the wrong side off the post. QPR aren't in this.
