  2. Post update

    Only one Premier League match this weekend - with Tottenham catching up their game in hand by travelling to QPR as most of the rest focus on FA Cup matters.

    But the top flight is back with a bang on the weekend starting Saturday 14 March.

    Among the games to look forward to are Manchester United v Tottenham, Chelsea v Southampton and Arsenal v West Ham.

    Get yer' full top-flight fixture list over here.

  3. Post update

    Branislav Ivanovic

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that Nemanja Matic, who was suspended for the match, injured his ankle celebrating their Capital One Cup final win over Tottenham on Sunday.

    Matic followed captain John Terry's lead in donning full kit for the larking about and champagne spraying.

    "He put his shinpad on, but not the ankle tape," said Mourinho, adding he will be alright for the Champions League last 16 second leg against Paris St-Germain next week.

    Stoke 2-0 Everton

    Former Tottenham and England midfielder Jermaine Jenas

    5 live Sport

    "Who is playing well in that Everton side? The manager is playing the same system from last season, when they did play well. There are issues all over the pitch, which accumulate and result in some bad, bad performances. You can put this all at the door of Roberto Martinez but the players need to take some responsibility too."

    Rian Hoskins: We forget how far Stoke have come under Hughes. They are slow starters but play flowing football and are still tough to beat.

    Dominic Halton: I am convinced Liverpool will beat Man United and claim fourth spot, just based on the way Liverpool are playing.

    Girish Santhosh: Credit to Rodgers for this brilliant turnaround. Henderson looks at home in his new role as captain.

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on 5 live Football Social: "We were not only patient but resilient. The race for Champions League places is tough and tight, and everyone won tonight.

    "We have 10 games to go, six at home and four away. We have to focus on our performances and not focus on anyone else."

    "Off the back of the League Cup final, look at Chelsea's performance. West Ham played very well and so that was a huge win for Chelsea."

  8. Player reaction

    Tottenham 3-2 Swansea

    Hugo Lloris

    Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris on Bafetimbi Gomis - a former team-mate at Lyon: - "It's not the first time but it's always a big moment of worry for all the stadium all the players. Everyone was scared but the most thing is Bafe is much better now and I hope he will recover well and be involved for the next game."

  9. 'We can enjoy this stage of the season'

    Liverpool 2-0 Burnley

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Brendan Rodgers

    Brendan Rodgers on 5 live Football Social: "It was a good performance tonight. These can be difficult games because you're expected to win. Burnley are a tough team to beat, but tonight we were very, very good in our defensive organisation and we looked very exciting going forward.

    "Daniel Sturridge started tonight and he contributed, he got his goal.

    "It's all about the levels of our performances - we are focused, we are playing the game at our level and we're entering a stage of the season which we can enjoy. We just have to maintain this momentum."

  10. "I am genuinely sick"

    QPR 1-2 Arsenal

    Chris Ramsey

    Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey, speaking to BBC Sport: "We played very well but you cannot keep being unlucky and sorry that you lost the game. Detail has cost us and I am genuinely sick for the players, I thought they gave everything but at this level it is the detail that matters. We can't keep relying on Charlie Austin.

    "It is fantastic that he had a few shots, and he worked tirelessly for the team but we need to start creating opportunities for a few other people. Overall the performance was good and I am sick we could not at least get something out of the game."

  11. Post update

    Jordan Henderson

    Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers on Jordan Henderson: "It was great - the strike for his goal and the feed into Daniel Sturridge for the second. He is up there with the top assist makers in the league, he has very good technique. He is developing well as a player, he still has work to go but he knows that. It's great to see."

    Henderson has seven assists in the Premier League this season, matching his best total from any previous top-flight campaign.

  12. Manager reaction

    Stoke 2-0 Everton

    Mark Hughes

    Stoke manager Mark Hughes: "We were very good. We had the setback of losing Philipp Wollscheid so we had to make a change early on a regroup.

    "But it was typical performance of not allowing anything to sway us from what we want to achieve this season.

    "It's a fantastic header from Victor Moses and then we are in a position to soak up pressure and hit on the break.

    "It was arguably Moses's best performance for Stoke City.

    "It's a fantastic period at the moment, 42 points and we are eighth. We're very happy but we still have work to do.

    "People were talking about Europe at the press conference but we have never talked about Europe this year, it was all about achieving a points total that was greater than last year.

    "I'm not sure Europe is achievable but we will have a go."

  13. Manager reaction

    QPR 1-2 Arsenal

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, speaking to BBC Sport: "We had the chances to score three or four. QPR gave everything and we needed to be patient and resilient because in the first 25 minutes they stopped us from playing.

    "But in the second half it was all us. At 2-1 you become edgy, we could not score the third goal and you never know, with Charlie Austin up front who can score a goal from anywhere. He must have one of the strongest strikes in the league. But overall we controlled the game well."

  14. Manager reaction

    Newcastle 0-1 Man Utd

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal on alleged spitting from Jonny Evans at Papiss Cisse: "I didn't see it.

    "I don't think Jonny Evans is a spitter. Maybe spitting on the floor but we are on the bench and you cannot see from there."

  15. Player reaction

    Newcastle 0-1 Man Utd

    Jonas Gutierrez

    Newcastle winger Jonas Gutierrez on his return to playing after battling testicular cancer: "I will remember for the rest of my life the reception. I'm really happy with the reception and the support the fans gave me and the support through the illness.

    "The support I have had from clubs all around the world, they don't matter about the shirt, it has helped me keep fighting. For people having the trouble I have been through, you have to be positive. If you believe in the heart you can beat the problems, you can."

  16. 'Spitting is one of the worst things in football'

    Newcastle 0-1 Man Utd

    Papiss Cisse

    Newcastle United manager John Carver speaking to BBC match of the Day: "I'm devastated, I'm annoyed. I needed five to 10 minutes to calm down. Our guys gave every inch. But when you play Man Utd you have to concentrate for every minute and we didn't.

    "I think we had the best chances and you have to put one of those away. You just wonder if they will hit you on the sucker punch and they did.

    "I'm devastated for our guys. The goal at the end the way it came, young Abeid has learned a harsh lesson, he is learning the game.

    On Newcastle's first-half penalty shout: "It was a penalty. Mr Taylor has a decision to make. At the time I thought it was and usually your gut instinct is right."

    On alleged spitting between Papiss Cisse and Jonny Evans: "I haven't seen it."

    If it has happened is that something you will act on? "You can't do it can you, it's one of the worst things in football. I can't comment on it, I just know there was a fracas on the halfway line."

  17. Manager reaction

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea


    Jose Mourinho

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho: "The way they play, nobody is better than them. They are the best at the way they play. It is not just to play football, the pressure, the tension and the emotion, my players were fantastic. We couldn't kill the game and these three points are massive for us.

    "I told the referee is it very difficult to be a ref here, because of the style of their game. Lots of long balls. West Ham had lots of balls in the box, very difficult, very intense and really difficult for the referee.

    "They complain for everything, the crowd is behind them and it is really, really difficult.

    "Eden Hazard is fantastic. He is punished by opponents in a very hard way. Today, not in a violent way, just an aggressive football way because they tried to stop him but the kid is playing, scoring and defending. My team were brothers on the pitch and that is important if you are to win the most difficult league in the world.

    "I want to sleep tomorrow until midday. Today easily you lose two points."

  18. Player reaction

    Liverpool 2-0 Burnley

    Jordan Henderson

    Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson: "We knew that we needed to back up beating a side like Manchester City, we knew Burnley would make it difficult so it was a big three points.

    "It's another good performance, but we need to keep building on it. I want to keep doing what I've been doing [as captain]. When Steven Gerrard is not there, I try to lead by example, but hopefully we can get him back because he's a massive player for us."

    Tottenham 3-2 Swansea


    Mauricio Pochettino

    Tottenham manager: Mauricio Pochettino: "I am happy but the feeling is a bit strange because in the last minutes they had chances.

    "It was a great save in the last minute. He (Hugo Lloris) is one of the best in the world and we are lucky we have him with us.

    "The three points and victory were very important - to feel like a winner again after the game. It was difficult after the final to lift the players and supporters but we showed big character today and played well. It was a great performance."

  21. Manager Reaction

    Stoke 2-0 Everton

    Roberto Martinez

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "It's disappointing as it has been a really tough two weeks. We showed that lack of cutting edge. Overall it was a pretty even game and I'm disappointed how we conceded the first goal as it is free header in the 18-yard box.

    "I did feel that as a team we showed we had played a number of matches in a short period of time.

    "The Europa League campaign is a bit obvious at the moment as it is a lot of games to play in a short period but as a club that is what we want, to play in Europe.

    "The concern is a huge moment in the season, we have 10 games and we will treat them as finals. We are in this situation for many reasons but we are looking forward and up to get as high up in the table as we can.

    "The desire and wanting for the result was there but the legs couldn't get there. We are ready to face the challenge straight on. We haven't got the results that our performances deserve.

    "Everyone at the club, it's the moment to get together and make sure we finish the season strongly. We need bit of luck and momentum but it's not been that type of season."

  22. Manager reaction

    Tottenham 3-2 Swansea

    Garry Monk

    Swansea manager Garry Monk: "Bafetimbi Gomis is fine. He went to hospital as a precaution but he is fine. That's the main thing.

    "He just needed a minute but he was talking when he came off the pitch.

    "We understand his history. He has had all the tests but it's just part of life for him."

  23. Post update

    Stoke 2-0 Everton

    Former West Brom, Sunderland and Everton winger Kevin Kilbane

    5 live Sport

    "Everton will be safe, but is that good enough for Evertonians? The big distraction has been Europe, getting results, but that has the knock-on effect in the league. Recent league performances have been really poor, and Romelu Lukaku is out of form."

  24. Manager reaction

    Newcastle 0-1 Man Utd

    Louis van gaal

    Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal: "I think we have dominated for 90 minutes, maybe our best match of the season, especially in an away match we deserved the victory.

    "We didn't reward ourselves in the first half. It was a narrow escape because our rivals have won also so it's a rat race.

    "We have created a lot of chances and could have scored much earlier. They also made two big chances and I think David de Gea rescued us at that time.

    "It was a crazy run from Wayne Rooney, a lost ball, that shows the fighting spirit in this team. We want to win. All my changes were to win, not to hold the result."

  25. Manager's reaction

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

    West Ham

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "I believe the performance was magnificent. Their goalkeeper's performance made some fantastic saves. I think the goal is offside by a hair's breadth.

    "These decisions need to go for you not against you. In saying all that we shouldn't have lost it in the chances we missed.

    "We started the second half brilliantly, the keeper made some great saves, and it is a shame these are happening on a regular occurrence with no wins. We can only hope it turns in our favour quickly.

    "The LMA is a fantastic professional body, with people who don't get listened to. We have fantastic ideas on how to improve the game but it is not going to happen. The authorities won't take us under their wing to help them change the game. We can keep pressing for more of an influence and can't give up."

    Nigel Pearson

    Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson to BBC Sport on his side being denied at least one penalty: "They are always big calls. But three in one night is a bit surprising, isn't it? I don't need to talk about those decisions because the fact you are interested in them means you have seen them and know the rules. I know what I think and I'm keeping it to myself.

    "We played well, it was a disciplined performance. We have to make sure we take the positives from tonight's game - and there were plenty of those. I thought we could have played better at times but we were in the game all night."

  30. Manager reaction

    QPR 1-2 Arsenal

    Arsene Wenger

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "We needed to be strong and get the ball down more, to get back to our game, and we did that better in the second half, I felt it was all us.

    "We scored two but we could have scored more, we played very well in the second half, and our collective game as a group was good, the chances we created were good and we played with a lot of desire and belief, overall it was a very positive game."

  31. Player reaction

    Liverpool 2-0 Burnley


    Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson: "It is another massive three points from us and keeps the momentum going. I thought that Daniel Sturridge's movement and holding up of the the ball was excellent. We are getting back to what we were doing well last season with high-tempo pressing high up and pitch and then playing in between the lines."

    Daniel Sturridge: "I feel good, I have felt good since I came back and am ready to play. I don't want to be eased back in, but that is was the manager wants."

  32. Post update

    Steve Bruce said last night that grown men were behaving like children, and Leicester manager Nigel Pearson is doing his best teenager impression now.

    Let's just say he thinks they should have had a penalty or two. Full quotes to come.

  36. Manager reaction

    Man City 2-0 Leicester

    Manchester City manage Manuel Pellegrini: "It's been a difficult week but from the beginning we tried to dominate. It was very important to score our first goal when we did but we had more chances in second half and we improved.

    "At 1-0 you are one ball away from drawing the game. It's very important to play well but the most important thing is to win."

    Man City 2-0 Leicester

    Former Man City and England full-back Danny Mills

    at Etihad Stadium for 5 live Sport

    "Leicester had two really good penalty appeals. Jeffrey Sclupp was first pushed over by Wilfried Bony, then a player was fouled on the line of the City area. City didn't have it all their own way, they didn't play well, they were lethargic and lacklustre but they got the result and they're still in the title hunt."


    Liverpool 2-0 Burnley

    Rickie Lambert comes on to replace the enterprising Raheem Sterling for a couple of minutes worth of cameo.

    "We heard of results, others winning around us so it was vitally important to get a win here. It was great work by Wazza (Wayne Rooney), the ball fell to my feet and I put it away.

    "People are always going to question the biggest club in the world. We concentrate on ourselves, listen to the manager and coaching staff and don't listen to anyone else."

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

    A defensive love-in at the final whistle as John Terry, Gary Cahill, Thibaut Courtois and Branislav Ivanovic share a group hug.

    They earned that.


    Football League round-up

    David Sharpe could be forgiven for thinking this football chairmanship lark is easy. The 23-year-old is the replacement at Wigan for his grandfather, Dave Whelan, who stepped down on Tuesday - and starts with a 1-0 win at Norwich.

    Kim Bo-Kyung's first-half goal ends the Canaries' six-match winning streak, and gives Wigan hope that they could yet avoid relegation - although they are still six points adrift of safety.

    Bottom club Blackpool, who are surely doomed, lose 1-0 at Birmingham, while Lancashire neighbours Blackburn warm up for Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final at Liverpool with a 2-1 victory at Sheffield Wednesday, courtesy of first-half goals from Jordan Rhodes and Adam Henley.

    Ipswich miss the chance to move back into the play-off places, losing 2-1 at Leeds, for whom Billy Sharp volleys a winner.

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea


    Chelsea close on two counts, first Diego Costa dribbling a shot just wide before Branislav Ivanovic blasts a shot straight into the arm of James Collins inside the box.

    Ding-donging finish at Upton Park.

  68. GOAL

    Newcastle 0-1 Man Utd - Ashley Young (89 mins)


    It's a horrible goal to concede. No danger as Newcastle try and shepherd the ball out, they turn it back inside to goalkeeper Tim Krul who totally loses his cool under pressure. He can only hack the ball straight to the feet of Ashley Young, and he does the rest. Late goals for both Manchester clubs...

  69. GOAL

    Man City 2-0 Leicester - James Milner (88 mins)

    James Milner

    Supersub James Milner seals the win for Manchester City, arriving like a freight train to smash in a cross from Jesus Navas. Relief from the home fans.

    Stoke celebrate their goal

    Goodnight, thanks for coming. Stoke wrap up the win as Marko Arnautovic steers a fine strike against the post and Mame Diouf is on hand to convert the rebound. Stoke continue on their impressive way up the table, Everton continue their freefall.

  78. GOAL

    QPR 1-2 Arsenal - Charlie Austin (82 mins)

    Charlie Austin

    He's deserved that. A terrific display in front of Roy Hodgson is capped by a great hit from Charlie Austin. He brings the ball down 20 yards out, turns and just lashes it into the net. No faffing about. Size 10 through the ball. Bang!

    "Sharp reminder for Manchester City as that shot from Riyad Mahrez rolled against the post. Leicester City may be second best but they are preying on City's nerves, and the nerves of their supporters, every time they come forward. City looking anxious at the back."

  81. Fifteen minutes to go

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

    Fifteen minutes go at Upton Park with Cheikhou Kouyate still getting treatment on the pitch.

  82. Post update

    Newcastle 0-0 Man Utd

    Into the last 10 minutes at St James' Park. Manchester United have had almost 70% of the ball, they've had 10 efforts on goal. But they haven't scored.

    Here comes Juan Mata, on for Marouane Fellaini. Beauty replaces the beast?

  83. Post update

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

    Ouch! You could feel that one from up here.

    Chasing a return ball from Diafra Sakho, Cheikhou Kouyate runs straight into John Terry, bashing heads together.

    Terry is up and bouncing. Kouyate is going to need a little longer and bit of magic sponge.

    Football League latest

    It's all happening at Elland Road now. Alex Mowatt's terrific free-kick put Leeds in front at home to play-off chasers Ipswich, only for Freddie Sears to squeeze an equaliser under keeper Marco Silvestre three minutes later. But Billy Sharp has just restored Leeds' advantage, and it's 2-1.

    Blackburn, without an away league win since 25 October, lead 2-1 at Sheffield Wednesday. Chris Maguire has pulled a goal back for the home side after Lewis McGugan's ball in causes all sorts of problems in the visitors' box.

    Fifth-placed Norwich are having plenty of possession at home to second-from-bottom Wigan, but are not making it count. Malky Mackay's side are still 1-0 in front through Kim Bo-Kyung's 12th-minute goal. Birmingham lead bottom club Blackpool 1-0.


    Man City 1-0 Leicester

    David Silva

    Manchester City desperately need a second goal and they turn to Frank Lampard. He replaces David Silva.

    "Manchester United are fighting to get into the top four, but although they are churning out results their form means they'll deliver poor performances. Whereas Liverpool are flying. Tough times at the minute for United fans."


    QPR 0-2 Arsenal

    Bad luck for Arsenal as Tomas Rosicky has a shot blocked and Mesut Ozil steers the follow-up against the far post. The Gunners have been very impressive since half-time.

  88. Post update

    Man City 1-0 Leicester

    Mark Schwarzer

    Manchester City respond to that Leicester chance as Mark Schwarzer twice pulls off saves from long-range before Yaya Toure fires over. Mark Schwarzer has had a blinder!

  89. CLOSE!

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea


    That is as close as West Ham have come to a leveller.

    Enner Valencia's shot takes an awkward bounce right in front of Thibaut Courtois, the Belgian spills and Gary Cahill bails him out of trouble with a tremendous sliding challenge, beating Diafra Sakho to the loose ball.


    Man City 1-0 Leicester

    ...and almost the leveller for Leicester! An element of hit-and-hope about Riyad Mahrez's speculator from 20 yards, it takes a touch off a defender and has Joe Hart beaten all ends up. Hart turns and watches - and sees the ball hit the base of the post.


    Newcastle 0-0 Man Utd

    Tim Krul again! Top save to keep out Wayne Rooney's steepling header at the back post. Almost the breakthrough...

  92. Post update

    Tottenham 3-1 Swansea

    Tottenham are bossing this now. Kyle Walker comes scampering forward, spots a hole and drives into the box.

    All left foot, he attempts an outside-of-the-foot finish from 15 yards. It catches a hefty deflection off Federico Fernandez and dribbles just wide with Lukasz Fabianski wrong-footed.

    "I remember watching Wilfried Bony play for Swansea against Leicester, when he scored a fantastic goal, a brilliant strike. It hasn't happened for him tonight, and City are nervous. They have brought on a midfielder for a striker."

  94. Post update

    Newcastle 0-0 Man Utd

    Liverpool are level on points with Manchester United as we stand, and Louis van Gaal's side would love w inner in the last 20 minutes. Do they look like providing one? Not particularly.


    Man City 1-0 Leicester

    Are Manchester City shutting up shop against Leicester? Wilfried Bony is replaced by James Milner after a frustrating full debut. Some nice touches, but some errant finishing.

  96. Post update

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea


    If there is one thing that Jose Mourinho's sides can do is draw the sting from opponents chasing an equaliser.

    Chelsea are doing exactly that as West Ham rally, but find the ball hard to get hold of.

    "Brilliant goal. Sanchez wrong-footed Rob Green. The ball went through a couple of defenders and the keeper couldn't react."

  98. Post update

    Tottenham 3-1 Swansea

    Tottenham are picking holes in the Swansea defence as the visitors try and press forward.

    Danny Rose is causing problems for the Welsh side, bombing on from left-back.

  99. GOAL

    QPR 0-2 Arsenal - Alexis Sanchez (69 mins)


    You shouldn't be able to score from there! He's been brilliant, Alexis Sanchez, in the second half and he gets his reward with a second goal which has been a long time in coming. The Chile forward beats two men on the left of the area to weave inside the 18-yard box, it looks like he should pull the ball back but he instead squeezes in a shot which wrongfoots Rob Green at his near post and finds the net.

    "Leicester have created chances, and they are causing Manchester City one or two problems on the counter-attack."

  101. Post update

    Man City 1-0 Leicester

    Manchester City are still a long way short of top gear, and they are almost punished as Dave Nugent stabs a great chance wide. He should score, but his blushes are saved by an offside flag.

    This has not been the performance of champions from the hosts though. Though as I say that, Mark Schwarzer is at it again to keep out Yaya Toure's curler.

  102. GREAT SAVE!

    QPR 0-1 Arsenal

    Much better from Arsenal and they scent a killer second goal. Alexis Sanchez is again at the heart of it, beating Darnell Furlong and testing Rob Green from range.


    Newcastle 0-0 Man Utd

    Jonas Gutierrez is booked with his first touch! For bringing down Adnan Januzaj. Referee Anthony Taylor is booed from the stands...

  104. Post update

    Tottenham 3-1 Swansea

    BBC London 94.9

    Former QPR striker Bradley Allen: "That is quite brilliant from Andros Townsend. He scampered down the left, but he had an awful lot to do. Swansea were swarming back but Townsend checked back and curled in a wonderful finish. Great from the England winger. A great noise inside White Hart Lane."

  105. GOAL

    Liverpool 2-0 Burnley - Daniel Sturridge (51 mins)


    That could be game, set and match.

    Daniel Sturridge, who has been lively in his first start for a while, beats Tom Heaton with a sharp downward header after being picked out by Jordan Henderson's deep cross.

    A long, long way back for the Clarets. Mind you Leicester recovered from two down at Anfield earlier this season to claim a draw.

  106. GOAL

    QPR 0-1 Arsenal - Olivier Giroud (64 mins)

    Olivier Giroud

    Scrappy, but they all count. Alexis Sanchez starts an attack down the left, finding the overlap of Kieran Gibbs. His ball in is half-blocked and Olivier Giroud, lying on the floor, reacts sharply to stretch and fire the loose change home.


    Newcastle 0-0 Man Utd - Jonas on

    A great moment! Jonas Gutierrez, who has had a lengthy spell out after being diagnosed with cancer, is back for Newcastle. The Argentine replaces Ryan Taylor to a huge ovation. He is given the captain's armband too. A nice touch.

  108. GOAL

    Tottenham 3-1 Swansea - Andros Townsend (60 mins)


    Well played referee Michael Oliver!

    The official allows play to continue after Nabil Bentaleb was floored by a heavy challenge and Andros Townsend takes full advantage haring forward, cutting inside the last man and curling home.

    Top reffing.

  109. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 Burnley

    Liverpool have started off where they left off in the first half. Tom Heaton has to be alert to get to a Philippe Coutinho cross-cum-shot with Daniel Sturridge lurking with intent.

  110. Post update

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

    BBC London 94.9

    Former Leyton Orient manager Martin Ling: "A great save by Adrian with his feet. West Ham were calling for the offside again, and they're really under the cosh with Chelsea the aggressors. The tempo of Chelsea is wonderful. Are these players tired from that Sunday cup final? It doesn't show."

  111. GREAT SAVE!

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

    What a stop!

    Adrian somehow gets a foot to Ramires' downward header to keep West Ham in the game. The chance was created by a lovely cross from Eden Hazard after the Belgian's dummy had left half the Hammers defenders on the seat of their pants.


    Stoke 1-0 Everton

    Everton have unleashed Arouna Kone and his first moment of danger sees a shot well saved by Asmir Begovic. Can Everton find a way back? Or will their slide continue?

  113. Post update

    Football League latest

    A lively start to the second half at Elland Road, but still no goals. Ipswich left-back Tyrone Mings is denied twice in quick succession, first by a brilliant save from Leeds keeper Marco Silvestri and then by defender Scott Wootton's block. A point in West Yorkshire for Mick McCarthy's side will take them back into the play-off places.

    No change elsewhere in the Championship; fifth-placed Norwich's six-match winning run is under threat as they trail 1-0 at home to struggling Wigan, Birmingham lead bottom club Blackpool by the same score and Blackburn are 2-0 up at Sheffield Wednesday in the mid-table battle.

    "Angel Di Maria is obviously struggling at the moment. He reminds me of Mesut Ozil at Arsenal, starting like a house on fire and then going downhill. He needs to work on his body strength. That's just what Ozil has done."

  115. CLOSE!

    QPR 0-0 Arsenal

    You don't hit them better than that! Matthew Phillips with a stunning hit on the bounce, the technique of a master, cracking drive - just a foot wide. David Ospina would never have saved it. End-to-end now.

  116. KICK-OFF

    Liverpool 1-0 Burnley

    Back up and running on Merseyside


    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

    Could be... Could be... Nope.

    Ramires hustles, feints and finally decides to pull the trigger in the box after a couple of opening presented themselves.

    His side-foot effort beats Adrian first time, but rebounds off the inside of the post and back into the goalkeeper's arms.

  118. Post update

    QPR 0-0 Arsenal

    Are we going to get a goal at Loftus Road? Alexis Sanchez jets in from the left, opens up his body Thierry Henry style and pokes one wide. Steve Bould offers a prayer.

    Tottenham 2-1 Swansea

    BBC London 94.9

    Former QPR striker Bradley Allen: "It's a tremendous finish. Ryan Mason threatened to do that on a couple of occasions in the first half, running on beyond the strikers. This time, the ball broke into his path and he directed the ball into the top corner. Wonderful finish, having shifted the ball out from under his feet. Excellent composure. Spurs have that all-important second goal, and this game is now going to be a cracker."

  120. SUBSTITUTION - Di Maria off

    Newcastle 0-0 Man Utd

    Angel Di Maria lobs one wide on the run. Manchester United continue to look frustrated - as Di Maria is replaced. On comes Adnan Januzaj in his place.

  121. GREAT SAVE!

    Man City 1-0 Leicester

    Brilliant again from Mark Schwarzer. Valuable veteran. This time he goes full-stretch to turn away a Sergio Aguero header.

  122. GOAL

    Tottenham 2-1 Swansea - Ryan Mason (51 mins)

    Ryan Mason

    Ryan Mason has to be restrained by stewards as he heads towards the Tottenham faithful to celebrate, punching the air and hollering his head off.

    That is his first Premier League goal and it was a decent strike to open your top-flight account, hammering home a rising shot after Christian Eriksen's twisting run drew in the Swansea defence.

  123. Post update

    West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

    West Ham are showing signs of getting out from under the Chelsea cosh. Diafra Sakho ripples the wrong side of the side netting with a meaty hit from 15 yards. Gary Cahill did well to cut down his angle.

    "Tim Krul made himself as big as possible. It was a great save, fantastic stuff."

  125. GREAT SAVE!

    Newcastle 0-0 Man Utd

    Fantastic double save from Tim Krul! He's kept Newcastle in the game. Marouane Fellaini beats the offside trap to run onto a flick over the top, he takes it on his chest and fires in a shot. Krul parries it out but only to Ashley Young. Young takes too long in getting a shot away but when he does he leathers it in, and somehow Krul also turns that one over the top.

    Louis van Gaal had Krul to thanks for some heroics during the World Cup. He's cursing him now.

  126. Post update

    Tottenham 1-1 Swansea

    Harry Kane floats into the spot where he scored the winner in the north London derby, but this time the Tottenham striker's looping header drifts just wide of the post.

  127. CLOSE!

    Man City 1-0 Leicester

    So close to an equaliser! Leicester striker Andrej Kramaric floats in a free-kick from the edge of the box, it takes a slight touch off the wall and glances into the side-netting.

    Tottenham 1-1 Swansea

    Not many sweeter strikers of a ball than Jonjo Shelvey in the Premier League and the Swansea midfielder is showing his full range tonight.

    He warms Hugo Lloris's palms with a 20-yard rising rasper.

  130. Mesut Ozil - an apology

    QPR 0-0 Arsenal

    I owe you an apology, Mesut Ozil! The reason he didn't score [20:50} is that Karl Henry had him in an armlock as he tried to steer home. That should have been a penalty to Arsenal.

  131. GREAT SAVE!

    Newcastle 0-0 Man Utd

    De Gea

    David de Gea is one of the Manchester United players who is not struggling for form this year and the Red Devils are grateful to their goalkeeper for keeping them level. The Spaniard does his best Peter Schmeichel impression to deny Emmanuel Riviere's volley at point-blank range.
