  1. "Even Lineker would have reacted"

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Former England winger Chris Waddle

    606 phone-in on BBC Radio 5 live

    Nemanja Matic

    "It's the worst challenge in football whenever anybody goes over the top. Even Gary Lineker or somebody like that would have reacted because it was a shocking challenge. I'm not saying Ashley Barnes deliberately did it but it was a leg-breaker.

    "It's not in the rule book but basically we should analyse Nemanja Matic's response as a quick reaction. He's got to two when counting to 10, and any other player in the world would have done what he did."

  2. Post update

    Swansea 2-1 Manchester United

    Manchester United suffered only their second Premier League defeat since November as Bafetimbi Gomis's late goal gave Swansea victory.

    Ander Herrera's low strike put United ahead, but the hosts responded immediately as Ki Sung-yueng flicked in from Jonjo Shelvey's cross.

    Louis van Gaal's side dominated the second half but failed to score.

    Shelvey's 75th-minute shot deflected off Gomis to give the Swans a first league double over United.

    Defeat is a setback for United's Champions League hopes.

  3. Post update

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    Sunderland remain in Premier League relegation trouble following boss Gus Poyet's unity call as fellow strugglers West Brom held them to a dire draw.

    Albion defender Joleon Lescott escaped with a booking after appearing to commit a professional foul on striker Danny Graham in the fifth minute.

    Sunderland winger Adam Johnson had a goal ruled out for offside, and Seb Larsson was denied by Ben Foster.

    The stalemate leaves the Black Cats 16th, three points above the relegation zone, while West Brom are five points and two places better off.

  4. Post update

    Hull 2-1 QPR

    Dame N'Doye scored his second Premier League goal in as many games as Hull City earned a late win over 10-man QPR to move clear of the relegation zone.

    Nikica Jelavic volleyed the home side into a 16th-minute lead from Steven Caulker's poor headed clearance.

    Charlie Austin headed a first-half equaliser for QPR just minutes after Joey Barton had been sent off for lashing out at Tom Huddlestone.

    Hull move up to 15th, while QPR are out of the drop zone on goal difference.

  5. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal

    Arsenal survived a late scare as they held on to beat Crystal Palace and take third spot in the Premier League.

    Santi Cazorla put the Gunners ahead when he converted a penalty after Pape Souare brought down Danny Welbeck.

    England striker Welbeck was involved in his side's second goal as his low effort was parried by Julian Speroni before Olivier Giroud netted the rebound.

    Palace's Glenn Murray scored in injury time after a goalmouth scramble and then hit the post as Arsenal held on.

  6. Matic off, Mourinho miffed

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Chelsea had Nemanja Matic sent off as the Premier League leaders were held to a draw by relegation-battling Burnley.

    Branislav Ivanovic put the Blues ahead when he slotted in Eden Hazard's cross.

    An Ivanovic shot struck Michael Kightly's arm and Diego Costa was pushed by Jason Shackell as the home side had two penalty appeals rejected.

    Matic was dismissed when he reacted angrily to a challenge from Ashley Barnes and Burnley capitalised when Ben Mee headed in a late corner.

  7. Sherwood undone

    Aston Villa 1-2 Stoke

    New Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood's reign began with a stoppage-time defeat by Stoke, the club's sixth straight league loss leaving them second bottom.

    In the dugout for the first time since replacing the sacked Paul Lambert, Sherwood saw on-loan winger Scott Sinclair head in Fabian Delph's cross.

    Mame Diouf beat Brad Guzan from six yards to level before the break.

    And Victor Moses's 91st-minute penalty won it - with Villa's Ron Vlaar shown a red card for bringing down the winger.

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Shohidur Rahman: Just seen Ashley Barnes' horror 'tackle' on Nemanja Matic. Matic is only human, the reaction was warranted.

    Tung Nguyen: I believe Swansea player Wayne Routledge got a red for a similar incident and that was overturned. Hope Chelsea will do the same.

    Steve, Wigan: What is it with these big clubs like Chelsea? It's always the official that is at fault. Maybe the red card was wrong. Maybe Chelsea should have had a penalty but if you're that good why don't you score goals? With so much talent put the result out of the official's reach. Stop blaming human referees.

    Barca beaten

    Spanish La Liga

    Barcelona

    Barcelona missed the chance to go top of La Liga as they suffered a shock home defeat to seventh-placed Malaga.

    Juanmi scored the seventh-minute winner following a Dani Alves mistake as Barcelona's 11-match winning run ended.

    A second home league defeat of the season means Barcelona stay a point behind Real Madrid.

  14. Post update

    I can't imagine this Manchester City performance is doing much for Jose Mourinho's mood. The lead at the top of the table will be cut to five points if it stays like this.

  15. Post update

    Man City 3-0 Newcastle

    BBC Radio Manchester

    Former Manchester City striker Shaun Goater: "Wow what a ball, what a run and what finish. Edin Dzeko wants to show exactly what he can do and he is doing that so far. It doesn't get any better than that.

    "There has been a lot of talk about Wilfried Bony and Dzeko will be thinking 'don't forget about me' and he isn't letting the manager forget."

  16. Van Persie injured?

    Swansea 2-1 Manchester United

    Robin van Persie

    As if you Manchester United fans out there aren't feeling miserable enough, here's some more (potentially) bad news. We've just seen Robin van Persie hobbling out of the Liberty Stadium on crutches, with a protective boot around his right ankle.

    The Dutchman crumbled to the ground in the latter stages of the 2-1 defeat, but could not be replaced as United had already made their three substitutions.

    No word from United boss Louis van Gaal in the tunnel afterwards about the extent of the injury. But we'll bring you more as we get it....

  17. GOAL

    Man City 3-0 Newcastle - Edin Dzeko (21 mins)

    A lovely, lovely goal. David Silva pops an inch-perfect pass over the top, Edin Dzeko kills it with a chest and then sweeps home on the half-volley. Goodnight Newcastle, and thanks for coming.

    Follow that game in detail here.

  18. 'Back to schoolboy football'

    Hull 2-1 QPR

    Steve Bruce

    Hull manager Steve Bruce, speaking to BBC Sport: "I think it's happened to us five or six times this year when we have conceded late on, so we were due one, that is for sure. Robert Green made a great save just 30 seconds before and I thought: 'We would take a point from here.' QPR were resilient, we've seen it often - it is very hard to play with 10 men. But we stuck at it, and we got the win in the end. When we did get 2-1 up we had five centre-forwards on the pitch and I though what am I going to do now? It was back to the school days.

    "It's always been important for us that Nikica Jelavic stays fit. That was the key for us. He was injured in the warm-up at Arsenal in October, he had an operation and came back too quickly from that. We needed something if Jelavic broke down, and Dame N'Doye I first saw in Denmark in the Champions League. We had to work extremely hard to get him but he has now got two in two games, and that could just be the difference."

    On the sending off of Joey Barton: "The first challenge the referee was correct to give the yellow card, then there was a bit of a kafuffle, and I don't know what Barton did to be honest, someone told me he punched him in the privates, I don't think he can get away with that.

    "We are upon it now. The tickly bit of the season is about to start, and there will be some strange results, as we've seen today. We've given ourselves a massive chance. We had our worst afternoon here a few weeks ago when we played Newcastle, but thankfully we've responded in the right way, with back-to-back wins, which is huge."

  19. Player reaction

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    West Brom defender Joleon Lescott on his alleged professional foul on Danny Graham, which brought a yellow card: "I didn't think I touched him to be honest, so I wasn't nervous. The ref didn't seem like he was going to do anything. Then the linesman gave it.

    "At half-time, someone said I pulled him, someone said I tripped him. I thought: Which one was it?"

  20. 'Historic double no mean feat'

    Swansea 2-1 Manchester United

    Swansea

    Swansea manager Garry Monk on his club completing a first league double against Manchester United: "I don't know if today is better than the win at Old Trafford - it's quite even. It was a great result - what a fantastic day. The team have done tremendously well against a side like Manchester United.

    "To take six points off Manchester United for the first time in the club's history is a great achievement. To make history for this club is fantastic for this team to be remembered and it is no mean feat."

    On fighting back from a 1-0 deficit: "Whenever you go a goal down it is against the plan but I thought we showed a good reaction. That's what we did, we got a goal back straight away and finished the half OK.

    "We came out in the second half and had to withstand some pressure - understandable because Manchester United are a very good side. I thought we defended very well and I can only remember them having one shot on target in the second half."

  21. 'One mistake can cost you'

    Aston Villa 1-2 Stoke

    Scott Sinclair, Aston Villa's goalscorer: "I felt as though we needed to go forward and keep pushing for goals after we scored. We need to manage games better, keep possession and create more chances than we did.

    "Once we get a win it will breed more confidence in the squad, so that's the main priority - getting three points and build from that."

    On the sending off: "Ron Vlaar has been a top man and outstanding in the game. One mistake can cost you and we need to make sure we learn from that."

    On the new manager Tim Sherwood: "He has made a difference. The first 20 minutes we looked enthusiastic, kept the ball and went 1-0 up. He has told us to go and do our thing and to make things happen."

  23. GOAL

    Man City 2-0 Newcastle - Samir Nasri (12 mins)

    Clinical, very clinical. Edin Dzeko races down the left, squares the ball to Samir Nasri inside the penalty area and he does the rest. The midfielder shows great feet and composure to work a bit of space before slamming the ball into the top corner. Newcastle, I don't envy you now.

    Follow minute by minute updates of that game here.

  24. 'I don't know the offside rule'

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    West Brom head coach Tony Pulis: "The first 20-25 minutes, we were OK and played good stuff - but then we got away from what we were trying to do. They had two bad results and we knew they would be up for it, with Gus sending out that letter and getting the fans onside. Their supporters cheered for everything."

    On referee Mike Jones' decision only to book Albion defender Joleon Lescott for an apparent professional foul on Danny Graham: "The lad who's fallen down with Joleon, I've seen old ladies take bigger touches than that and not fall over in the street. He's fallen over."

    On the decision to disallow a first-half Adam Johnson goal for offside: "Jermain Defoe is offside and he's interfering with play. He couldn't have given it for Johnson, because he's level. But I don't know the offside rule, to put it bluntly."

  25. 'I'm proud of the players'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal

    Alan Pardew

    Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew said: "I can't remember being as fulfilled by a defeat for a long time. I'm so proud of the players and I feel so despondent for them to not get anything out of the game.

    "From the start to the finish we had a game plan to threaten them and give them no time. We were superb, but sometimes this game can be very cruel.

    "The performance from the players and the fans was exemplary. We couldn't have done any more. I was kicking myself that we were 2-0 down because we had been so much better than that. We played the best football that we have done since I've been here."

  26. 'United didn't create many clearcut chances'

    Swansea 2-1 Manchester United

    Lukasz Fabianski

    Swansea keeper Lukasz Fabianski: "The atmosphere is good in the dressing room - everyone is happy with the win, especially against that kind of opponent. It gives us a massive boost of confidence for the coming games.

    "I had a lot of crosses and set pieces to deal with, I was expecting more shots instead of crosses. But anyway, we managed to win so we are all happy.

    "I think at Old Trafford we had more possession and looked more comfortable on the ball. Today, United had more possession obviously but they didn't create that much. They had a few half chances but nothing that clearcut."

  27. Text us on 81111

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Lisa: Very disappointed Chelsea fan at Stamford bridge. Referee had a shocker, two points dropped but worse than anything Nemanja Matic is the one player we really can't replace. The thought of losing to Spurs on Sunday...

    Richard Clarke: So Chelsea only draw and the world has ended. Why, every time, does Jose Mourhino think they have been hard done by when they don't win. Disputed decisions are a part of the game - some you win some you lose. He's like a spoilt child and is no doubt sulking like one now.

  28. Barton gutted to be sent off

    Hull 2-1 QPR

    Joey Barton

    Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton, on Twitter: "Young kid making his debut has made a good tackle. Couple of Hull players trying to get him sent off. My job as captain is to protect him.

    "I've tried to prevent Hull's players influencing the referee as you can see by me pushing Alex Bruce away. My actions towards Tom Huddlestone were certainly not malicious, it was a stupid reaction to being barged but I can appreciate it wasn't right.

    "I'm gutted I got sent off. I've let my teammates down today and being someone who puts the team above everything else I'm gutted about that."

  29. Manager reaction

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said: "It was about fighting for the win. Crystal Palace made it a really tough game and we had to dig deep on a difficult pitch against a good team so I'm very happy with the win.

    "Palace gave everything they had. It was like a cup game. They closed us down and stopped us playing."

  30. Manager reaction

    Aston Villa 1-2 Stoke

    Tim Sherwood

    New Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood: "I am bitterly disappointed. I didn't think we deserved to lose the game but we didn't do enough to win it. We have to go and do a job and forget any anxiety.

    "It will be a work in progress, there is a lot of work to be done and I've told the lads that. We have to brave and get on the ball.

    "There is no point in me getting a big stick out and banging them on the head with it. It is about me getting the best out of them for the remaining games.

    "We will improve. It is a very short amount of time to get instructions into them but we will get better and we need to keep this great club in the Premier League. We are not thinking about going down."

    Former England midfielder Jermaine Jenas

    Final Score

    "I have been really impressed with Steve Bruce's player acquisition but he has had a lot of bad luck with injuries. Once it does come together and the players are all fine then Hull City could find the back end of the season looks a lot more easy than it seems. "

  33. Manager reaction

    Aton Villa 1-2 Stoke

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes: "Before the game there was a lot of positivity around Villa and rightly so. I think Tim (Sherwood) will be a very good appointment.

    "But today was about what we needed to do as a group and to have a response to the previous weekend at Blackburn (a 4-1 defeat) when we didn't do ourselves justice.

    "Not too many people gave us a chance of winning, which we were a bit taken aback by. But we played well. I would have settled for a point - but I think we deserved all three.

    "It was a key game for us on a number of levels and I am delighted with what we produced. If we keep on performing like this then I will be very happy at the end of the season."

    Hardik Dhanak: Refereeing has ruined the EPL this season... Need some serious change in that.

    Jack Robinson: Best League in the world, but shocking decisions every week against a team on top like it's planned. People will soon get tired.

  36. 'It was a bad decision'

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet: "We knew before the game what West Brom would do. Tony Pulis is a genius at setting up teams, so you need something to go for you. Sometimes you need the referee to do their job. It's getting to a point where we cannot get the right decision. It was a simple decision, it was clear."

    On referee Mike Jones' decision to only book defender Joleon Lescott for an apparent professional foul on Danny Graham: "It's a bad decision. It was poor because the referee didn't make the decision. It was the linesman. The referee needed to consult the linesman. They were two mistakes that cost us."

    On the decision to disallow a first-half Adam Johnson goal for offside: "It's a tough one. I'm not going to blame the linesman, because it's a difficult decision. But he was wrong. When you have those two decisions against you, it's difficult to break down a Tony Pulis team. It's 0-0 and probably the last one shown on Match of the Day tonight."

  37. 'We forgot to score'

    Swansea 2-1 Manchester United

    Van Gaal

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "Of course you can say we dominated the game but the only thing we could have done more was score more out of the chances we created. Today we were the unlucky team. I think we created enough chances. We were the dominant side in both halves.

    "Conceding so quickly after opening the scoring was important. It was a throw in for Swansea and we should have been more organised. But it was a good goal by Swansea.

    "Today we played well - only we forgot to score. We have to be more effective."

  38. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Former Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane

    "Burnley have come back from 2-0 against Manchester City and in other various games and it will give them confidence that they can stay in the division."

  39. Manager reaction

    Hull 2-1 QPR

    Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey, speaking to BBC Sport: "I am absolutely disappointed for the players, they could not have given more today. They tried to keep that point we had at half-time, but we cannot let it crush us because we have got more games to come.

    "Robert Green made an outstanding save, but unfortunately a lapse of concentration right at the end, and that is what happens in the Premier League. It was a long time to go with 10 men, and to be honest for parts of it we tried to play but it was difficult. Hull are a very good side. It would have been massive for the club."

    On the sending off of Joey Barton: "There was a bit of a melee and obviously the referee saw something that wasn't legal, and he has sent Joey off. He is a wholehearted player. He's more disappointed for the boys, and he is a massive player for us.

    "We will have a look at it and see if it was warranted or not. We can take heart from today's performance. The boys are in there, genuinely disappointed. We are going to have a camp now to try and put things right for the next game."

  40. Player reaction

    Swansea 2-1 Manchester United

    Wayne Rooney

    Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney: "It is disappointing to go in front and then lose the game. I thought the performance was good, we dominated the game, particularly in the second half. Swansea were struggling to get out of their area but we couldn't get that second goal. They saw that out and got some luck with their goal.

    "We created lots of chances but, in fairness, Swansea defended the box well. But we have to move on - it was one of those games.

    "We certainly deserved to win the game. That's the disappointing thing, when you play well and can't get the win. But that's football."

    "I am very pleased with the application and the quality we showed. The mentality is solid and they are a very good side. A couple of times in the second half they made some good chances but I am very pleased with the general performance and how they are growing in this league.

    "We have got to make sure we learn what this division is about. The players are improving. The mentality and the physicality has always been there.

    "Ashley Barnes has worked very hard for us, he has come in and taken his chance. We know what we are about and we know we can stay relentless in our application and our thinking."

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho:

    "No [the red card did not change things]. There are four moment of the game where you can write the story. Minutes 30, 33, 43 and 69. Don't ask me more questions.

    "I can't go through the incidents. I am punished when I refer to these situations and I don't want to be punished. I believe in spite of some clear callers, you guys are honest and professional, the callers can disturb the truth. I truly believe you are all honest people.

    "To describe I have to use words that I cannot. It is better we finish. I don't want to look silly in front of you. I am surprised we didn't lose.

    "I believe in your honesty and I believe you want to do a good service to English football. I am not paid to comment on the pundits work. Sometimes I do but I shouldn't."

  45. "There was no malice in it"

    Hull 2-1 QPR

    Tom Huddlestone

    Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone, speaking to BBC Sport: "We plugged away and plugged away, they could have caught us on the break a couple of times but thankfully we got the winner in the end. Since the City game the lads have been full of confidence, but we have got to beat the teams around us."

    On the sending off of Joey Barton: "It was one of these things. Everyone was saying a few bits, but probably Joey Barton has done a reaction people do dozens of time in the week in training, when there is no malice in it. But the referee was right there and he saw it."

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Rhian Hoskins: Barnes' tackle was dreadful and how he's gone unpunished is terrible. Not a campaign but decisions are going against Chelsea.

    Harry G Henderson: Not for the first time this season, a Chelsea match has been decided by a number of shocking decisions by the referee.

    Robert Sagoe: 2 penalties not given. Barnes should not be on the pitch. Campaign against Chelsea? Mou is right on.

  61. GOAL

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal - Glenn Murray (90 mins)

    Glenn Murray

    Chance for Palace into injury time. A corner comes in from the right, causes chaos, Wilfried Zaha's strike is blocked and Glenn Murray is on hand to tap home.

  62. GOAL

    Aston Villa 1-2 Stoke - Victor Moses (Pen 90 mins)

    Victor Moses

    It looks like being a painful first day in the office for Tim Sherwood. Victor Moses keeps his cool to slot home the penalty.

  63. FULL-TIME

    Swansea 2-1 Manchester United

  64. RED CARD

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke - Ron Vlaar

    Tim Sherwood

    Ron Vlaar has to go. He was the last man and it's a wretched error.

  65. PENALTY to STOKE

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Ron Vlaar with a terrible touch, Mame Diouf nicks it off him and Vlaar slides in - penalty!

  66. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "It's breathless here. Eden Hazard lying on the ground. Both teams are going for it in injury time. Jason Shackell and Michael Keane have been magnificent at the back for Burnley."

  67. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Chelsea pump the ball forward for Diego Costa to chase. Another goal in this one?

  68. CLOSE!

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Ciaran Clark with a header just over the top! My word that was close...

  69. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Former Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane

    Final Score

    "I think Nemanja Matic has been really harshly treated [with the red card]. I think it should have been a straight red card for Ashley Barnes because that really was a leg breaker. Jose Mourinho is right to feel aggrieved but Matic should have the right to react to a tackle like that because he could have had a broken leg."

  70. GOAL

    Hull 2-1 QPR - Dame N'Doye (89 mins)

    Dame N'Doye

    Heartbreak for QPR as Dame N'Doye makes it two goals in two games for Hull City. The striker was denied seconds earlier by a stunning Rob Green save but there is no stopping that as the Senegal international heads home a cross from the left.

  71. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Burnley haven't won a league game at Chelsea since 1971. Is today the day?

  72. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Less than four minutes left as QPR hold on. Sone Aluko's low shot is well saved by Rob Green as Hull struggle to find the breakthrough.

  73. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    "Keep your shape! Keep your shape!"

    That's the message from Sean Dyche on the touchline. Burnley in danger of getting carried away and throwing too many men forwards...

  74. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "What a fantastic end to the game we have got on our hands. It's going to be end-to-end, because Burnley are going for a win - they have got their tails up- and Chelsea have to go for a win as well, even if they are down to 10 men. A draw isn't good enough for them. Didier Drogba, coming on up front alongside Diego Costa? This could go either way."

  75. FINAL FIVE

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Didier Drogba is on for 10-man Chelsea as we enter the last five minutes. His first task is a brilliant clearing header to push out another Burnley corner.

  76. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Ben Mee's goal was only the second that Chelsea have conceded from a corner in the league all season. It could be a big one, with ramifications at both ends of the table.

  77. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    A shot on target for Palace at last as Yannick Bolasie's 20-yard strike is easily held by goalkeeper David Ospina. Into the last seven minutes.

  78. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Jon Walters with the back-post volley and that's a good save from Brad Guzan to push it away. Stoke sniff a rare away win...

  79. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    QPR have defended admirably with 10 men. You can't help but wonder what they would have done had Joey Barton not seen red. Eight minutes left.

  80. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    Ben Mee

    "Jose Mourinho thought about bringing Gary Cahill on for the comer and changed his mind at the last minute. Would Cahill have helped? Ben Mee managed to get up above Ramires, who was allegedly marking him. Nobody was on the line. Chelsea could lose this game now. There is no way Burnley are going to sit back."

  81. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

    The fact that Ashley Barnes won the corner which led to that Ben Mee equaliser will not be lost on Jose Mourinho...

  82. GOAL

    Chelsea 1-1 Burnley - Ben Mee (81 mins)

    Ben Mee

    Well I never did! Ben Mee rises to power in a header at the back post and put Burnley right back in it! Who saw this coming?

    What will Jose Mourinho say about this?

  83. GREAT SAVE!

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Ashley Barnes! He left his mark on Nemanja Matic moments ago and he almost equalises with a low shot which is brilliantly saved by Thibaut Courtois...

  84. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Shola Ameobi on for his Crystal Palce debut as he replaces Joe Ledley. A bold move by the hosts as they replace a striker with a midfielder. Into the last 10 minutes.

  85. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "When the Ashley Barnes challenge (see 16:27) is freeze-framed you see he bends around Nemanja Matic's foot, around the shin bone. It could have done real serious damage. Whether Barnes totally meant it, that is something only he will know.

    "The game has become really ill-tempered and it seems to have coincided with Chelsea realising they are in danger. Burnley now have a chance to get back a vital point. Jose Mourinho has been getting more and more agitated on the touchline, because too many of his players have not been at their best."

  86. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Ramires! Hits one like a bullet, brilliant strike from 20 yards but skims the outside of the post. So close to 2-0 for 10-man Chelsea.

  87. Team news

    Manchester City v Newcastle (17:30 GMT)

    Wilfried Bony is on the substitutes bench for Manchester City but Yaya Toure starts.

  88. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Referee Roger East is in trouble, looks like he's pulled a calf! That's not funny. Definitely not.

    East needs some lengthy treatment but he's going to be OK I think. Or maybe not - there's movement in the dugout and we may have a replacement.

  89. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    There could be more fireworks from Jose Mourinho in his news conference. That's two good penalty appeals turned away and a red card for him to debate.

  90. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Hull still looking the more likely to grab the winner as Dame N'Doye flicks a header over the goal. Can 10-man QPR hang on?

  91. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Crystal Palace have had no shortage of attacking intent but they are still without a shot on target. Arsenal looking fairly comfortable.

  92. 'A vile leg breaker'

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "You cannot react like that. And Chelsea players have done in the past. I think the tackle by Ashley Barnes deserves a substantial ban though. It was a vile challenge on Nemanja Matic.

    "Potentially a leg-breaker. Chelsea have a real battle on their hands in the last 20 minutes now."

  93. GOAL

    Swansea 2-1 Manchester United - Jonjo Shelvey (73 mins)

    Jonjo Shelvey

    Well, well, well! No-one saw this one coming. Earlier I said Swansea were being pummelled like a tiring heavyweight boxer and in true Rocky Balboa style they bounce back to land a knockout blow.

    Jonjo Shelvey lets fly with a speculative strike from 25 yards, which clips the forehead of Bafetimbi Gomis on its way past a wrong-footed David De Gea

  94. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Best chance of the match for Crystal Palace. Pape Souare whips in a cross from the left and Dwight Gayle heads just over.

  95. RED CARD

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley - Nemanja Matic

    Nemanja Matic

    Ugly scenes at Stamford Bridge and Nemanja Matic sees red. He is caught by a nasty challenge from Ashley Barnes, Barnes is high and catches Matic right on the shin. It's a bad one.

    But you can't do that. Matic reacts by chasing after Barnes and judo-throwing him to the deck. He's shown a straight red card while Branislav Ivanovic sees yellow for his part in a tussle. Again.

  96. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Former England midfielder Jermaine Jenas

    Final Score

    "Stoke are starting to come into the game a little more but Aston Villa have started to play a bit more directly. Fabian Delph has found Christian Benteke with a few more long balls, the kind of passes we saw him play in the second half of the FA Cup win over Leicester."

  97. SUBSTITUTION

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    Steven Fletcher - without a goal since November - and Connor Wickham are on for Sunderland as Gus Poyet frantically rolls the dice. He heeds a goal, he needs a win. Big time.

  98. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Former Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane

    Final Score

    "Stoke are having a right good go but they are leaving gaps at the back as they counter attack, so if Aston Villa are to get another goal that is where they might get some joy."

  99. SUBSTITUTION

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Jake Livermore is replaced by Abel Hernandez for Hull. The Uruguayan striker has not scored since September. Now's your chance to be a hero...

  100. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Diego Costa

    Into the last half hour of a not very fluent Chelsea display. A coupon buster on the way?

  101. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "Burnley have now realised they have a chance of getting something out of this game. Chelsea are trying to get the ball into Diego Costa far too quickly and there is a bit of desperation about their play. Costa himself is having a quiet day and there is nobody else getting in the box."

  102. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Tim Sherwood

    Tim Sherwood has got his gilet on under his suit jacket. A nice twist.

    He's out in his technical area shouting and bawling at someone. Villa look tired in the last few minutes, their intensity has certainly slipped an it's Stoke looking a threat. Jon Walters takes a tumble in the box but there's no danger of a penalty there.

  103. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    A wild, wild effort. Jordon Mutch volleys horribly over the bar from Wilfried Zaha's pull back. The Eagles are still waiting for their first shot on target.

  104. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "I'm not surprised Juan Cuadrado has been taken off. He's looked very lively but has not had much of an impact on the game. Willian, coming on, should do a lot more damage. The next goal is the key here. If Chelsea get it the three points will be theirs you feel."

  105. SUBSTITUTION

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Juan Cuadrado is off, after a fairly isolated and quiet display, so Willian is on. What an excellent season he is having.

  106. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Another promising opportunity for Crystal Palace. Yannick Bolasie, on for Fraizer Campbell, burns down the left, stands a cross up at the far post but Wilfried Zaha dallies and the chance is gone.

  107. CLOSE!

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    Jermain Defoe has a shot blocked away for a corner. He remains Sunderland's main threat but both sides look short of goal threat. The Black Cats have netted just six goals in their last 10 Premier League home games.

    And that is close! Free header for Santiago Vergini but he closes his eyes and skims one wide...

  108. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Former England midfielder Jermaine Jenas

    Final Score

    "In the first half Crystal Palace were unlucky, they had chances of their own to score, especially through Wilfried Zaha, and for the second Arsenal goal Danny Welbeck is actually offside. So Palace have been unfortunate but they are still working hard."

  109. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Robbie Brady

    Hull are playing some patient stuff but there will come a point where they have to start going more direct. They will be furious if they don't win this against 10-man QPR.

  110. Post update

    Swansea 1-1 Manchester United

    Former Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane

    Final Score

    Robin van Persie

    "United have just started to edge a bit more forward, they are starting to create a few more chance but Bafetimbi Gomis still looks a threat for Swansea."

  111. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "Chelsea have the lead but it also looks a little like they have a bit of a hangover from their midweek game in Paris, and in this league you cannot get away with that. Diego Costa has twice come close for the home side though."

  112. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Almost two! Diego Costa hurls himself at a Branislav Ivanovic cross, he's so close to reaching it too but can't quite get a size 11 on the ball. He was only a few yards out and would have scored for sure.

  113. SUBSTITUTION

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Tim Sherwood

    Here comes Andreas Weimann, the Villa forward replacing Carles Gil in an attacking move. Tim Sherwood wants the three points.

  114. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    So close to a third. Mesut Ozil advances through the middle, slips the marauding Alexis Sanchez through on goal but he pokes the ball inches wide of the far post. There look to be more goals in this for Arsenal.

  115. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Former Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane

    Final Score

    "Up against 10 men Hull have got to be a little bit more creative and take a few more chances in the final third which is not some thing they are used to doing. But if QPR can hold on and take a point it will be a decent point for them."

  116. SUBSTITUTION

    Swansea 1-1 Manchester United

    Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia have both been introduced by Manchester United as they look for the breakthrough. Young was the key man in the win at Preston really...

    Follow minute-by-minute updates on that game here.

  117. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Bad news for Crystal Palace as Fraizer Campbell goes down holding his hamstring. It looks as though his race is run. The games goes on and Olivier Giroud is booked for a daft swipe at Dwight Gayle.

  118. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

    Marc Wilson

    Aston Villa seeing plenty of the ball but there's definitely more impetus on getting the ball forwards. Not possession for possession's sake. Andy Weimann is warming up too.

  119. SUBSTITUTION

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Hull are going for this. Attacking midfielder Gaston Ramirez replaces centre back Alex Bruce. They know the three points are there for the taking.

  120. Post update

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    Brown Ideye

    Bitty, scrappy, low-grade stuff so far. Tony Pulis will take a point now I reckon. He may well get one too.

  121. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Arsenal look well in control. Mesut Ozil loops a header from Alexis Sanchez's cross onto the bar as Arsene Wenger's men look to make the three points safe.

  122. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Danny Ings needs some treatment for Burnley and while he's off the field strike partner Ashley Barnes forces Thibaut Courtois into a regulation stop, with a dipping deflected strike. He can hit a ball, Barnes...

  123. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Matt Phillips has assisted more goals in his last two appearances for QPR (3) than in his previous 32 league games combined (2).

  124. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Same again for Crystal Palace at the start of the second half. Wilfried Zaha advances down the left and then wastes the final ball. Deja-vu anyone? Such a frustrating player.

    As I say that he again spurns a good opportunity on the right.

  125. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Cesc Fabregas

    If Chelsea don't win this one those two penalty appeals will be dominating your airwaves for the next 24-36 hours. Cesc Fabregas leads the Burnley midfield on a merry dance and pings out a beauty of a ball to Juan Cuadrado - but it has too much gas on it and runs out.

  126. KICK-OFF

    Back in play...

  127. Post update

    The players and staff are re-emerging around the grounds. Can Tim Sherwood get that all-important first win?

  128. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Jose Mourinho

    Diego Costa's reaction to his late penalty appeal was a toddler's tantrum in a supermarket. Rolling around on the floor, punching the turf with both hands.

    Jose Mourinho, on the other hand, was laughing in sheer disbelief.

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Alistair Wiseman: 8 goals in 11 games for Giroud. Can't argue about that for a return from a striker! Welbeck might want to take note.

    Ahmed Mohamed: Giroud never gets the credit he deserves, this is a striker that has hit double figures for the past three seasons.

    Edward Still: Clinical from arsenal, they've struggled to get in the game but are 2-0 up!

  130. AS IT STANDS

    Premier League table

    A double-digit lead for Chelsea once more at the top of the Premier League table as it stands, while Arsenal are moving in to third place on goal difference.

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Chelsea's first penalty appeal - for handball - looked extremely convincing. The second one on Diego Costa, not so much.

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "Jose Mourinho may well mention that Diego Costa penalty appeal (see 15:46) in the post-match press conference. Had Chelsea scored a second they might have been able to relax in the second half but it would have been harsh on Burnley and as it stands the away side have every chance of getting back into it."

  136. HALF-TIME

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    MOTD's Martin Fisher at the Stadium of Light

    "It's been a scrappy, scruffy affair. Joleon Lescott, in the eyes of Sunderland fans, should have been sent off when he appeared to grab the shirt of Danny Graham, while Adam Johnson had a goal chalked off for offside when replays suggested he was level."

  137. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    Olivier Giroud has scored five and assisted three more in his last seven games for Arsenal in all competitions.

  138. HALF-TIME

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Plenty to talk about in that half of football. Joey Barton will feel he was hard done by with his straight red card, BUT, if you throw your arm towards an opponent, you are asking for trouble. His teammates might yet get him out of a hole though as Charlie Austin drew them level before the break.

  139. HALF-TIME

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke

  140. HALF-TIME

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal

    MOTD's John Motson at Selhurst Park

    "It will be some comeback if Crystal Palace can turn this around. Santi Cazorla put Arsenal ahead with a penalty after seven minutes before Olivier Giroud made it 2-0 right on half-time. It sounds easy and, despite Crystal Palace's best efforts, it has not been too difficult for Arsenal."

  141. HALF-TIME

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

  142. HALF-TIME

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

  143. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    Adam Johnson is a little unlucky not to have given Sunderland the lead - flagged offside as he latches on to a diagonal ball from Ricky Alvarez before nipping across keeper Ben Foster to score. TV replays suggest Johnson was level.

    Seb Larsson then has a shot well saved. Sunderland ending the half on top.

  144. PENALTY APPEAL

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Diego Costa

    Chelsea have another penalty shout waved away as Diego Costa goes a tumbling in the area under a challenge from Jason Shackell. Shoulder to shoulder or a push?

  145. HALF-TIME

    Swansea 1-1 Manchester United

  146. GOAL

    Crystal Palace 0-2 Arsenal - Olivier Giroud (45 mins)

    Olivier Giroud

    Clinical stuff from Arsenal as they double their lead with the second shot on target of the match. Alexis Sanchez slips Danny Welbeck through, his shot from an angle is parried by Julian Speroni and Olivier Giroud taps home the rebound.

  147. CLOSE!

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    What a strike from Tom Huddlestone. The former Spurs man fires the ball towards goal from 25 yards and it fizzes inches wide of the upright. Rob Green was rooted to the spot.

  148. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Arsenal

    Arsenal have been relatively untroubled so far, despite doing little themselves as an attacking force. A lively match without much happening in front of goal.

  149. GOAL

    Aston Villa 1-1 Stoke - Mame Diouf (45 mins)

    Mame Diouf

    ...This is how it feels to be 1-1!

    Tim Sherwood's joy is short lived as Stoke level, Mame Diouf rising high to thump home a cross from Stephen Ireland, Two textbook headers in this game.

    Former England midfielder Jermaine Jenas

    Final Score

    "QPR are fighting. When you have Charlie Austin up front, just give him a chance and he will score. That celebration was brilliant too (see 15:39). And a word on Matty Phillips - that is his third assist in two games now he has been getting a run in the side."

  153. SUBSTITUTION

    Aston Villa 1-0 Stoke

    Tim Sherwood's first tactical reshuffle required as Kieran Richardson limps off injured, on comes Aly Cissokho at left-back. Stoke seeing more of the ball as we close in on half-time.

  154. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Former Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane

    Final Score

    "Great goal and another good ball into the box. We have seen some good balls into the box this afternoon and it was another good header from Austin and a great celebration too in reference to Hull pulling out of that move, over worries about his knee."

  155. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Opta Joe: 8 - Joey Barton has been shown a card in each of his last eight PL appearances (7 yellows, one red). Anger.

  156. Post update

    Hull 1-1 QPR

    Former England midfielder Jermaine Jenas

    Final Score

    "For the sending off, it's daft from Joey Barton, right in front of the referee (see 15:32). If you throw a punch you deserve to be sent off. Initially we saw footage of a shove on Alex Bruce, and we thought he had been sent off for that. But on a replay we've since seen him throw a punch at Tom Huddlestone. This is a relegation dogfight game. Joey should have learned from his experience. He will be disappointed with himself."

  157. GOAL

    Hull 1-1 QPR - Charlie Austin (39 mins)

    Charlie Austin

    How about that then? Matt Phillips whips in a cross from the right and Charlie Austin heads into the net. The striker does a "dodgy knee" celebration" - perhaps a note towards when he failed a medical at Hull?

  158. Post update

    Hull 1-0 QPR

    Referee Anthony Taylor has made a big decision in giving Joey Barton a red card. I'll bet a few are watching the QPR midfielder's Twitter feed with interest. He won't be happy at such a soft dismissal - although looking at it again, why does he throw his arm towards Huddlestone? Daft from Joey.

  159. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-0 Stoke

    It's not fair or sensible to draw any conclusions after 40 minutes of a new manager's reign but I'm going to anyway. Aston Villa have looked much more lively under Tim Sherwood. They may not have won any awards for quality but the ball has moved faster, they've looked stronger in the tackle and are getting the ball to the front three much more often. All in all, a vast improvement I'd say.

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Arsenal

    Just the one shot on target at Selhurst Park after 35 minutes and that is Arsenal's opener from the penalty spot. It has to get better.

  161. CLOSE!

    Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

    Jermain Defoe

    Close! Jermain Defoe looks the most likely source of a breakthrough and he is close to an opener, squirreling into space on the left of the area and dragging a shot right across goal. All it needed was a touch...

    Branislav Ivanovic up front? Let's see it.

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Former Scotland international Pat Nevin

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "Branislav Ivanovic scored the goal but he has not been very good at all today, every pass he has tried to play has been off target. I said this previously and was laughed at, but I think Ivanovic is well suited to be a striker - he has all the attributes.

    "Burnley are still in this game, and on the touchline, Jose Mourinho has been having a right dig at Diego Costa."

  164. PENALTY APPEAL

    Chelsea 1-0 Burnley

    Branislav Ivanovic wants a penalty for hands after his shot is blocked in the penalty area - but there's nothing given. Chelsea not in top gear, but they don't need to be so far.

  165. RED CARD FOR QPR

    Hull 1-0 QPR - Joey Barton (32 mins)

    Joey Barton

    A straight red card for QPR's Joey Barton. The midfielder is not a stranger to moments of madness but he looks hard done by here. He gives Alex Bruce a little shove as players question a free-kick awarded to Hull and does similar to Tom Huddleston. Not sure either were violent acts but he is on his way. A tough job just got harder for the visitors.

    Swansea 1-1 Manchester United - Ki Sung-yueng

    Former Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane

    Final Score

    "Ki did well at Sunderland last season, he was a real key player for them and instrumental in them staying up. It was a great run and a super finish."

    Swansea 1-1 Manchester United - Ki Sung-yueng (30 mins)

    Ki Sung-yueng

    Manchester United's lead didn't last long. Ki Sung-yueng - who scored at Old Trafford - equalises with a finish from Jonjo Shelvey's cross.

    Aston Villa 1-0 Stoke

    Stoke were really rattled for a few minutes by that Scott Sinclair opener but Victor Moses has just seen a well-struck shot saved. Can Mark Hughes' men come back?

  169. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-1 Arsenal

    Good position for Crystal Palace as Dwight Gayle lines up a free-kick 35 yards out from an angle. With the penalty box full, he opts to go for goal and blazes horribly over. Awful.

  170. GOAL

    Swansea 0-1 Manchester United - Ander Herrera (28 mins)

    Ander Herrera

    He may not start too often but Ander Herrera has an eye for goal, stroking in from the 16 yards after a neat move.

    Aston Villa 1-0 Stoke

    Opta Joe: 2012 - Scott Sinclair has scored his first Premier League goal since August 2012, when he scored for Swansea against QPR. Overdue.
