    QPR 0-1 Southampton

    BBC Radio 5 live's John Southall: Charlie Austin on crutches, looks like a foot injury. Tim Sherwood a done deal should be in next week.

  3. Defoe for England?

    Swansea 1-1 Sunderland

    Here's one from left-field. Sunderland manager Gus Poyet is touting Jermain Defoe for England...

    "When you pick strikers you pick those in form and scoring goals," Poyet said. "We saw today Harry Kane at Spurs and it's an obvious choice, but Jermain has a chance if Wayne Rooney plays in midfield.

    "But that's up to Roy (Hodgson) to decide. I respect the manager of the national team and the only thing the player can do is perform."

  5. Draw specialists

    Swansea 1-1 Sunderland

    Sunderland have drawn exactly 50% of their Premier League games this season - 12 out of 24. It's working so far though, with Gus Poyet's side 14th in the table after today.

  6. Manager reaction

    Swansea 1-1 Sunderland

    Gus Poyet

    Sunderland manager Gus Poyet: "It was a shame at the end but we were very good in the first half and that can give us the confidence to keep getting results."

    On goal-scorer Jermain Defoe: "It's something we were missing, and something he will keep doing because he is Jermain Defoe.

    "I am sure that now other teams are going to have to look at us in a different way."

  7. Manager reaction

    Swansea 1-1 Sunderland

    Garry Monk

    Swansea manager Garry Monk: "We did more than enough to score us the goals and win us the game, but we're disappointed we didn't come away with all three.

    On Ki's disallowed goal: "It's not conclusive, I was told his head was offside but I'm not sure how that can be right.

    "The linesman's flag was up straight away so we just have to go with it."

  8. DR Congo finish third at Africa Cup of Nations

    DR Congo 0-0 Equatorial Guinea (4-3 penalties)

    DR Congo

    BBC Africa's Nick Cavell at Malabo: "The third-place game at the Malabo stadium passed off without any sign of a repeat of the problems that marred Thursday's semi-final at the same venue.

    "Before kick-off there were a lot more police visible around the stadium complex and 30 minutes before kick-off there only around 200 fans in the stadium. The number slowly increased to between 3000 and 4000 during the first-half and they did their best to lift the atmosphere.

    "The black and yellow helicopter that tried to intimidate the fans on Thursday was here again but thankfully much higher above the stadium. Those fans who did come were vociferous in their support of an Equatorial Guinea side who seemed calmer and more composed on the pitch and created more chances. And even in losing the crowd didn't show the same anger as on Thursday and instead showed massive appreciation for their heroes who have defied the odds to finish fourth."

  10. Wage calculator: Global footballers v you

    Did you know Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli's yearly salary is equivalent to the cost of 64,010 Liverpool replica shirts with 'Balotelli' printed on the back. And Balotelli earns 82 times more than England women's captain Steph Houghton, who is reportedly on £50,000 a year.

    Global football stars earn some of the highest wages in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo's contract at Real Madrid earns him around €350,000 (£265,000) each week. But how much do you get paid compared with a top footballer? Use our calculator - part of the BBC's A Richer World season - to find out here.

    QPR caretaker-manager Chris Ramsey: "If I'm honest, I felt we rode our luck a bit in the first half. But the defeat was very difficult to take.

    "It gives a lot of hope to the owners and fans to see that the players are trying their best to keep us in the division. We had some good spells of play, but we really need to tighten up on the quality of our passing and our creativity in the final third.

  15. How's stat?!

    Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea

    And here are some key stats from today's game at Villa Park:

    • Aston Villa scored their first Premier League goal in 659 minutes. It was the fourth worst run without a goal in Premier League history.
    • Jose Mourinho has won his first Premier League game at Villa Park (D3 L2). The only Premier League ground he hasn't won at are the Emirates and St James Park.
    • The Blues have lost just two of their last 16 Premier League away games (W10 D4 L2).
    • Aston Villa have won just one of their last 10 Premier League games at Villa Park (W1 D4 L5).

    Fair enough to get your team-mates in for a picture after going seven points clear at the top of the table, but not sure why Branislav Ivanovic looks so glum? He did score the winner after all...

  17. Post update

    Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace

    I don't want to add to your anxiety Leicester fans, but these stats sum it all up really:

    • The Foxes have won just one of their last nine Premier League home games (W1 D2 L6).
    • Nigel Pearson's side have netted just three goals in their last eight home Premier League games.
    • Leicester City have won none of their last 17 Premier League matches against London clubs (W0 D5 L12).

    Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace

    Former Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin

    Final Score

    "Leicester are the only team in the Premier League that have humiliated Manchester United and they are bottom. It just doesn't make sense. But you look at their next game away to Arsenal in midweek and you do think they will get something. They are capable of getting a point if they all play to their potential."

  19. Post update

    Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

    Final Score

    "Leicester have lacked cutting edge all season, with the exception of that freak game against Manchester United, which was a one off. They say the table doesn't lie and I don't think it does because they have been struggling to score goals since that game. United did not take them seriously, which is perhaps why they were so heavily beaten in that early-season match, and then when other teams saw what Leicester did, other teams did start to take them seriously, which has not worked in their favour."

  20. Manager reaction

    QPR 0-1 Southampton

    Ronald Koeman

    Southampton manager Ronald Koeman, speaking to BBC Sport: "I think we played well. We played good football and we had the best chances in the game.

    "We were maybe lucky that Fraser Forster made that great save 10 minutes before the end, but I think the better team won today.

    "Sadio Mane was very good, but Eljero Elia was as well. We spoke about exploiting the space behind QPR's defenders, and I think we did that well, and created some good chances before Sadio scored the winner."

    Leicester City goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer: "I thought we were the dominant side, but didn't take our chances.

    "We're not missing chances through lack of effort. Maybe it's that extra little bit of confidence and pressure.

    "Today showed we still have the fight, we were just missing that bit of luck."

    Final Score

    James Milner bends a free kick

    "Last week Manchester City did very well against a very good Chelsea side. This week, they blew it. Up until the free-kick from James Milner that snatched a point at the death Hull deserved the victory, and I thought they were going to get all three points. Hull will be devastated but to be fair to City, they got something out of it. However, they are now seven points behind Chelsea."

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

    Final Score

    "John Motson says there is a relegation aura around Loftus Road and he should know because he has been to enough matches. We have all said QPR must win their home games, and they haven't done again today. They are without a permanent manager, and there are a lot of questions that need to be asked. They need to get the answers right."

  27. Manager reaction

    Alan Pardew

    Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: "I think the changes at half-time helped us, because Brede Hangeland came on and was a colossus at the back and he was significant for the goal.

    "We should have seen the game out more comfortably. Leicester City have good players, their wide players certainly caused us problems.

    "Nigel Pearson will be disappointed not get something but it was a good away performance from us."

  29. Post update

    Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

    Final Score

    "When you look at the margins at the bottom of the table, you wonder what do Crystal Palace need to stay up? I can tell you it is not 26 points I can assure you of that. It will be closer to 36 points. There is a lot of football still to play, and if I was Burnley or Aston Villa I am thinking I am chasing them."

  30. Player reaction

    Leicester 0-1 Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley: "It is massive to beat the teams around us. We knew it would be difficult, it's a big three points.

    "Away from home we've been pretty good and we need to keep it going. There's a great team spirit in the camp."

  31. Manager reaction

    Nigel Pearson

    Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson: "It was a game that we had chances in, and to come away with nothing is quite tough for us. I don't think they caused us problems.

    "We're not taking chances. They didn't have too much in terms of creativity. It's disappointing because we had plenty of good situations. We are talking about the same things again.

    "It's about us unable to turn positive displays into results. It's frustrating we can't turn performances into results."

    Paul Lambert

    Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert, speaking to BBC Sport: "I have mixed emotions because I thought we deserved something from the game, we played really well. In the second half it looked like only one team was going to get a win, but we conceded a really unfortunate goal.

    "Even last week we had big chances to score. Carles Gil has been a revelation for us, he has been getting better every game. I have to make a decision about where I think we can hurt teams, Gabby Agbonlahor was excellent and his speed caused Chelsea problems. He was a threat, I knew he could not keep it up all the way afterwards, and that is why I changed things.

    "We have top players. Our season will not be defined with what happened against Arsenal and Chelsea, it is about from now on in.

    On throwing his coat into his dugout in the first half, and possibly tension with the opposite dugout: "You are probably better asking their assistant to be fair. No problem with Jose, whatsoever."

    Ex-Everton winger Ronny Goodlass, BBC Radio Merseyside

    "Liverpool dominate through retaining the ball, so that is something Everton will have to combat. But Liverpool's back three are vulnerable - Skrtl can look awful and Can is a midfield player. So get at that back line and they can be beaten. Everton need to play aggressively in front of this full house - they need to get ball to the likes of Lukaku in order to put pressure on Liverpool."

    Northampton boss Chris Wilder won manager of the month on Friday and his side continued their impressive form with a 2-1 win over Morecombe to move up to 11th place. Joel Byrom's first minute goal for the hosts was cancelled out by Jamie Devitt's strike before Marc Richards secured the points.

    Hull manager Steve Bruce: "If you'd offered a point of course I'd have taken it. What we wanted after last week was effort and endeavour. There was a response. In the first half in particular it was a terrific performance. It is a shame because it is cruel. We did enough to win the match.

    "It is a soft free-kick (from which City scored). Sergio Aguero is a fantastic player but to me it looks like a tiny arm on the shoulder.

    "I suppose they had a big call for a penalty but two wrongs don't make a right.

    "Late goals erode a bit of confidence. I think that is five times it has happened now. It is a frustration but the performance was the most important thing. We have shown enough to see we can stay in this division. Let's hope we can keep it up."

    Manuel Pellegrini

    Manchester City boss Manuel Pellgrini: "It is frustrating because I think the team worked a lot in the game and had good possession. We did all we could to win but we are not in high performance in the attacking zone.

    "We work and run but you need ideas when you play teams like Hull, Middlesbrough or Arsenal when they come with nine or 10 players behind the ball.

    "Maybe players coming back from injury - important players will help. We need to try and find other ways to play. It is difficult to know what the reason is for the spark going.

    "Every point you lose it is more difficult to recover. But in football you never know. We are not thinking about Chelsea. They are six points clear but can lose games. But we are thinking about our performance."

    League One review

    Leaders Bristol City were denied a seventh consecutive victory as Steve Cotterill's side were held to a 0-0 draw at MK Dons in their top of the table clash. City were reduced to 10 men when defender Luke Ayling was sent off five minutes from time at Stadium:MK.

    Swindon Town are the main beneficiaries from that draw and leapfrog the Dons to move into second place following a 2-0 win over mid-table Barnsley, who had won their previous two games. Raphael Rossi Branco and Ben Gladwin got the goals.

    Yeovil scored two goals in a match for the first time in 18 attempts to turn things around against Crawley Town and move off the foot of the table with a 2-1 win in their relegation six-pointer. Ajay Leitch-Smith added to Gozie Ugwu's equaliser to move Yeovil up to 22nd.

    Jose Mourinho

    Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, speaking to BBC Sport: "I like Aston Villa's team. They have very good players. It is difficult to believe Villa are where they are. I wanted to analyse them not because of the points they have, or the goals they don't score, but by the quality of the players. It was a very difficult game, the stadium is a difficult place to go. The referee was very, very good. Very, very good in the way he controlled the emotions of the game.

    "Sooner or later Villa had to score and they did it today. They have so many good players, with runners in attack. They put Benteke on in the second half, they had Cole, Sinclair and Gil behind the striker, three very creative players. It makes it very difficult to play against them, so this is a very important victory for us.

    "It is one more hurdle in the title race, but there are many more. Every game is difficult. It is possibly the only league in Europe where teams from the bottom can play against the top ones and not just make things difficult but win points.

    "I like [that Man City lost] but that was not my concern today. I was never in the game asking for that result. We have to think about us and focus on our matches."

    "John Stones reads the game so well. When Everton don't have him in their defence they look so much poorer, a little disjointed. Distin hasn't been in good form and Jagielka has looked off, as has Alcaraz. Defensively Everton have been found wanting, and they need a settled back four.

    "Aaron Lennon, who's just joined the Toffees on loan, is only 27 - he has good years ahead of him. He has good pace and ability, and hopefully he'll fit into that Everton side and do well."

He will only get better in that position because a lot of it is about experience. He reads the game for fun, he brings the ball out with both feet, he can pick out a pass, he is quick and makes it all look so easy. I think he has a really big future in the game."

    Callum Wilson scored a brace as league-leaders Bournemouth secured a 3-1 win over struggling Wigan Athletic on a day when five of the top six secured maximum points. Wilson's strikes sandwiched Yann Kermorgant's effort as the Cherries secured consecutive victories for the first time since December.

    Second-place Derby County, who have won six of their last seven league games, remain level on points with Bournemouth after a debut brace for midfielder Tom Ince helped secure a 4-1 win over a Bolton side that have now failed to win any of their last five games in all competitions

    Meanwhile, new Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman, who replaced Stuart Pearce earlier this week, saw his side battle to a 3-2 win at Brighton on his debut. Lewis Dunk gave the hosts the lead just before the break but Forest hit-back through Danny Collins, Henri Lansbury and Ben Osborn before Beram Kayal hit back in the final moments.

    BBC Radio 5 live at Villa Park

    "Chelsea have been in total control in this second half. Aston Villa could not do anything going forward, they really lacked belief and quality in the final third but they tried their best. Chelsea have done a special job here today. They are seven points clear but they were nine points earlier in the season, so it's not all over yet.

    "Manchester City are still capable of going on a run, and a lot of these Chelsea players have played a lot of games already and will tire, especially with the latter stages of the Champions League still to come."

    Bottom side Yeovil have scored two goals in a match for the first time in 18 attempts to turn things around against Crawley Town and make it 2-1 in their relegation six-pointer. Ajay Leitch-Smith adding to Gozie Ugwu's equaliser to potentially move Yeovil up to 22nd.

    Meanwhile, it remains goalless between the top two with MK Dons holding league-leaders Bristol City 0-0 at Stadium:MK.

    "Ki Sung-yueng spent last season on loan at the Stadium of Light and, in his first match back since returning from the Asian Cup with South Korea, the midfielder meets Kyle Naughton's inviting cross with a fine diving header.

    "The hosts are in the ascendancy with 15 minutes left but, with a league-high 11 draws so far this season, Sunderland will fancy their chances of holding on for a point."

    Swansea 0-1 Sunderland

    BBC Sport Wales's Dafydd Pritchard: "What would Swansea give for a finisher of Jermain Defoe's quality?

    "Despite dominating the first half and creating a number of clear scoring opportunities, the Swans find themselves 1-0 down to Sunderland thanks to Defoe's second goal for the club since joining in January.

    "The former Tottenham striker's goal came against the run of play, and just seconds after Ki Sung-Yueng had a goal disallowed for Swansea as he was deemed to have been offside.

    It remains goalless between the top two in League One with MK Dons holding league-leaders Bristol City 0-0 at Stadium:MK.

    Third-placed Swindon could be the big beneficiaries, closing the gap to City to one point, with Raphael Rossi Branco's first-half strike giving Mark Cooper's side a 1-0 lead against Barnsley.

    In the battle at the other end of the table, Izale McLeod has given Crawley Town, who stunned promotion-chasing Preston last weekend, a 1-0 lead against bottom-feeders Yeovil, who sacked manager Gary Johnson on Wednesday.

    Andy Knowles: About as poor a first half as it gets from Manchester City. Need to stand up and be counted second half otherwise the title race is dead.

    Matthew Vins: I think the only way for Aston Villa to generate a goal threat is to get Martin Laursen back...

    Get some ice on it Eljero.

    QPR 0-0 Southampton

    Ouch. That's gut-wrenching. Eljero Elia is kicked in the unmentionables from close range by Richard Dunne as the big defender tried to hack the match ball clear. It did not end well. It never would.

    Manchester City 0-1 Hull City

    Here's the average position of the Manchester City players in that first half against Hull. As you can see, Hull are doing a good job of shielding their goal.

    Paul Moore: Manuel Pellegrini is running on borrowed time at the moment. Barcelona will crucify City on this form!

    Andrew Neill: Harry Kane the only home goal scorer so far today. Surely that must change..?

    Leicester 0-0 Crystal Palace

  160. HALF-TIME

    Manchester City 0-1 Hull City

    MOTD's Simon Brotherton at the Etihad

    "That was a very stodgy first half from Manchester City. They have been disjointed and devoid of inspiration. Very disappointing from City. Hull, in contrast, have played well."

  161. Post update

    Aston Villa 0-1 Chelsea

    Eden Hazard on another mazy run for Chelsea, who have had an easy 45 minutes so far. His shot is eventually deflected wide.

  162. Injury update

    QPR 0-0 Southampton

    Matt Targett

    News from Southampton on left-back Matt Targett, who was carried off on a stretcher after a nasty-looking aerial collision with QPR winger Matty Phillips. The 19-year-old has been taken to hospital for a precautionary X-ray.

  163. HALF-TIME

    Swansea 0-1 Sunderland

    MOTD's John Roder at the Liberty

    "The arrival of Jermain Defoe at Sunderland might just be the most astute piece of business of the transfer window, his second goal since arriving having put them ahead in a close, keenly-fought first half."

  164. INJURY TIME

    QPR 0-0 Southampton

    Victor Wanyama

    There's seven minutes of injury time at Loftus Road following that injury to Matt Targett earlier.

    Swansea 0-1 Sunderland

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

    Final Score

    "A classic Jermain Defoe goal, making the chance himself and burying it. Sunderland are looking to feed him in and around the edge of the box, and it was a lovely finish."

  166. Post update

    Manchester City 0-1 Hull City

    There's no sign of Manchester City dragging themselves back into this just yet, with Hull's high-energy pressing game working a treat so far.

  167. Post update

    Leicester 0-0 Crystal Palace

    Palace centre-half Scott Dann has a nasty clash of heads with Wes Morgan and unsurprisingly comes off worse. He needs some careful treatment, looks like he is winded, and he's very dazed. He may have to come off. But he's on at the moment.

  168. GOAL

    Swansea 0-1 Sunderland - Jermain Defoe (42 mins)

    Jermain Defoe

    Moments after Ki Sung-Yueng had a goal chalked off for offside - he tapped home Jonjo Shelvey's free-kick from six yards out - Sunderland pour up the other end and Jermain Defoe runs 40 yards with the ball before smashing past Lukasz Fabianski.

    He's still got it - and he's now scored against all 20 of the teams currently in the Premier League.

    Leicester 0-0 Crystal Palace

    Dwight Gayle

    After Dwight Gayle argues with the linesman about the placing of a corner - just put in the quadrant Dwight - Palace almost take the lead.

    Gayle's delivery is excellent and Scott Dann heads into the side-netting.

  170. Post update

    Swansea 0-0 Sunderland

    Swansea remain the better team at the Liberty, without having had too many goal-scoring opportunities.

  171. Post update

    QPR 0-0 Southampton

    A little opening for QPR as Adel Taarabt controls the ball in the area and gets a shot off, but a Southampton defender gets across to block it.

  172. Post update

    Manchester City 0-1 Hull City

    Former Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin

    Final Score

    "Hull have been on the front foot all the way through this game. Joe Hart came to read it but the communication between him and Vincent Kompany was wrong. Manchester City have had more possession but Hull have been so much more positive with the ball when they have had it. There is confidence."

  173. Post update

    Manchester City 0-1 Hull City

    Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

    Final Score

    "Hull had been unlucky not to take the lead up to this point. They have really held their own. Man City look like a side capable of winning the title, but they look like the need to be kick-started before they start competing in games. Why? Hull look so much brighter, and they are playing through and around Manchester City. Make no mistake, they are worthy of this 1-0 lead."

  174. GREAT SAVE!

    Leicester 0-0 Crystal Palace

    Leicester close again! Jeff Schlupp chests down a cross at the back post, he slams his shot into the turf and Julian Speroni makes the stop. Riyad Mahrez gets to the follow-up first but can't keep his effort down. The Foxes almost ahead.

  175. GOAL

    Manchester City 0-1 Hull City - David Meyler (35 mins)

    David Meyler

    Can you believe it? It's happening again to Manchester City. They go behind at the Etihad after another indifferent first-half display. The defending for the goal is all over the shop too, as they fail to clear their lines on a number of occasions. First Jake Livermore's shot is beaten clear by Joe Hart, then Gaston Ramirez drives a low shot against the inside of the post... then David Meyler slides the rebound into an empty net.

  176. HITS THE WOODWORK

    QPR 0-0 Southampton

    Southampton have done everything but score today and Sadio Mane pokes wide after skinning Clint Hill, before Jose Fonte hits the bar with a volley from a corner.
