    Robbie Savage

    606 on BBC Radio 5 live

    On the subject of Raheem Sterling: "I think now the days are gone when you play for the badge."

  2. HALF-TIME

    Chelsea 1-1 Stoke

    Stoke City

    When Charlie Adam's scoring from his own half you know something's in the air. It's one each at half time.

  3. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Stoke

    Former Stoke City winger Matthew Etherington

    BBC Radio Stoke at Stamford Bridge

    "Charlie Adam's tried that nine or 10 times before but it has come off today. He's had an absolute stinker in this first half but that will go down as one of the best goals in Premier League history. I won't see many better in my lifetime. Absolutely unbelievable."

  4. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Stoke

    Robbie Savage

    606 on BBC Radio 5 live

    "That is better than David Beckham. Beckham was just outside his own half but Adam is outside the centre circle. It is about 65 yards and he has driven it like a wood over the goalkeeper."

  5. GOAL

    Chelsea 1-1 Stoke - Charlie Adam (44 mins)

    Incredible! From his own half! Charlie Adam equalises from well inside his own half, lobbing a back-pedalling Thibaut Courtois with a fantastic effort.

    One to watch!

  6. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Stoke

    Former Stoke City winger Matthew Etherington

    BBC Radio Stoke at Stamford Bridge

    "You can't say it wasn't coming. The penalty was a soft decision for me, it looks harsh, but Chelsea fully deserve to be 1-0 up. Stoke have been poor and the formation clearly isn't working."

  7. GOAL

    Dortmund 0-1 Bayern - Robert Lewandowski

    He's scored against his former club. Of course he has! Robert Lewandowski heads Bayern Munich into the lead in front of the fans who once adored him.

  8. GOAL

    Chelsea 1-0 Stoke - Eden Hazard (Pen 39 mins)

    He waits. It's what he does. Eden Hazard waits for the keeper to move and slots home down the middle.

  9. PENALTY to Chelsea

    Chelsea 0-0 Stoke

    Pretty lethargic stuff on display from the leaders Chelsea - but they have a penalty as Cesc Fabregas is tumbled in the area.

  12. 'We were awful'

    West Brom 1-4 QPR

    Tony Pulis

    West Brom boss Tony Pulis: "First half we were awful. The problem is that players listen to social media and they might think it is job done and we are safe.

    "But this is a relentless league and we need points. Until you get over the line you can't take anything for granted but it looked that way first half."

    On Youssuf Mulumbu's red card: "He has led with his hand, but he hasn't tried to elbow anyone. It looks a lot worse than it is, but the ref has made his decision. He did catch Joey Barton in the face. You can look at it either way but we have to move on."

  13. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Stoke

    Former Stoke City winger Matthew Etherington

    BBC Radio Stoke at Stamford Bridge

    "It's all too easy when Cesc Fabregas and Oscar have time on the ball to get their heads up and pick out passes. Stoke haven't started well at all. They need to get a foothold, otherwise Chelsea are going to take it away from them very quickly."

  14. 'It was a lot closer than 4-1'

    West Brom 1-4 QPR

    Chris Ramsey

    QPR boss Chris Ramsey: "We got three points that we really needed. The foundation was laid in the first half. We have created a lot of chances in a lot of the games we have played but haven't taken them. Today we did.

    "West Brom is not an easy place to come so I am very pleased with how the players performed.

    "The scoreline was brilliant for us regards goal difference, but it was a lot closer than the 4-1 score suggests.

    "We are closer to the teams we want to catch now and this result certainly helps us morale-wise."

  15. 'As good as it gets'

    Everton 1-0 Southampton

    Roberto Martrinez

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "It was as pleasing performance as you are going to get. It was a mature, and we were strong defensively. I though it was a good tactical battle and for us to keep a clean sheet was good. It was full of character, guts and desire.

    "At times we had to manage the game and defend really well. Tim Howard came up with two magnificent moments and that's what makes Tim special. But overall with the team display we defended well.

    "Also it's great to see the sort of display from Phil Jagielka, John Stones and Gareth Barry with the way they all connected, Phil's goal is a magnificent way to top his performance. It's three straight wins for the first time this season which shows the potential and maturity of this squad."

  16. 'We have to finish more'

    Manchester United 3-1 Aston Villa

    Ander Herrera

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "It is always a difficult match to win against a side battling relegation. We have created four or five chances and didn't give any chances away in the first half.

    "We scored the first goal at the right time at the end of the first half. The first half was a good performance but we have to finish more. The second half was more controlling."

  17. 'It wasn't a red card'

    West Brom 1-4 QPR

    QPR's Joey Barton on Youssuf Mulumbu's sending off: "I didn't think it was a red card at the time. I just went to win the ball and I got hit late. I didn't feel I got done.

    Joey Barton

    "It was quite a sore one and the ref is there to do a job. He has obviously seen something and I couldn't question it because I was flat out on the floor. I don't think he is that kind of player and it wasn't that kind of game."

  18. 'We deserved the win'

    Leicester 2-1 West Ham

    Nigel Pearson

    Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: "We've had a bit of a frustrating time. We've been involved in some entertaining games, but when you come out on the receiving end, it tests your resolve.

    "We deserved to win today. In the first half, we got off to a good start but missed a penalty. The players had a moment of doubting themselves, and it allowed West Ham to have a dominant spell. But we did a good job of taking the initiative, and we deserved to win the game. We hope today's a start of different fortunes for us, but it's one game in isolation."

  19. 'We're in the rat race'

    Manchester United 3-1 Aston Villa

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "We are still not certain about Champions League qualification - it is still a rat race.

    Louis Van Gaal

    "But we have given a blow to Liverpool and Southampton also lost. It is a big gap. now we have to wait to see if the gap is too big for Tottenham too. But we have to play the top three - it is still a rat race."

  20. 'I scored off my shinpad'

    Everton 1-0 Southampton

    Phil Jagielka

    Everton captain Phil Jagielka: "The ball went in off my shin pad for the goal but who cares! It was a great team effort, the boys put their bodies on the line today. We haven't played particularly bad but the results haven't come. Hopefully we can finish the season strongly.

    "We would have loved to have got this momentum earlier in the season but we are where we are. Hopefully this will be the start and continue it for the remaining seven games."

  22. 'The decision went against us'

    Manchester United 3-1 Aston Villa

    Tim Sherwood

    Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood: "I thought we got stuck in and were always in the game until the third goal which killed us off.

    "We expected them to give ball back to us from the drop ball because we were in possession. But the referee thought nothing of it and they scored from that. It has gone against us.

    "I'm not saying that is the reason we lost the game but it is disappointing. Today Man Utd were much better than us."

  23. Post update

    Manchester United 3-1 Aston Villa

    Chris Waddle

    On Manchester United on BBC Radio 5 live

    "United have hung in there this season and the last few weeks they have been impressive. They deserve the win today. The only way Villa would score was from a mistake or a set-piece. Ander Herrera is a very good player. He links up well with Antonio Valencia and Juan Mata on the right. They got a lot of joy down that side today."

  24. 'We deserved better'

    Everton 1-0 Southampton

    Ronald Koeman

    Southampton boss Ronald Koeman: "The final result is very disappointing but not with the performance of the team. We played well. We were unlucky with the goal against us. The second half it was more difficult to create.

    "Everton were good defensively and it was difficult to score an create chances after the break. However, we deserved a better result because we played well, but it's always about scoring.

    "They scored one and we didn't score. If we continue with this level we'll maybe finish in a good position. We had a lot of ball possession, created chances. We did everything. But it wasn't quite enough."

  25. Up at the top

    Table

    Are Arsenal genuine title challengers? Arsene Wenger laughed it off earlier on but Martin Keown believes so if his 5 live summarising was anything to go by.

    Manchester City are fourth.

  26. 'I can't believe it'

    Leicester 2-1 West Ham

    Sam Allardyce

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "I just can't believe we missed so many chances. We played a really open game, but we've ended up losing because we've not taken the chances we've created and Leicester have got a goal that's won the match.

    "When you're in control of the game, you have to take the chances when you get them. Against a team battling for survival such as Leicester, if you get the lead, it kills them. They start to think: 'Here we go again.' That's how ruthless you have to be. Because we didn't do that, it gave them the chance."

  27. Down at the bottom

    Table

    What a day for Leicester and QPR. The bottom two before kick-off both picked up huge wins to give themselves a huge shot in the arm. Leicester are now 'only' four points adrift of safety while QPR can smell safety.

    Who do you think will go?

    Manchester United 3-1 Aston Villa

    Man Utd

    Manchester United's two-goal hero Ander Herrera: "Aston Villa are fighting relegation and have to fight hard, so that made it difficult for us. They came to Old Trafford to wait and try to give us few opportunities. We kept the ball and tried to win the game through possession and being patient. That's what we did."

  33. 'We are on the right road'

    Manchester United 3-1 Aston Villa

    Ander Herrera

    Manchester United's two-goal hero Ander Herrera, who has scored seven times since his summer move from Athletic Bilbao: "Scoring goals was one of the things that I had to improve on. I'm getting better but have to improve still.

    "The battle for the top four is going to be very tough but we are on the right road. We are in very good form but have to play seven more games and have to fight a lot."

  34. 'Everyone is stunned'

    West Brom 1-4 QPR

    Pat Murphy

    BBC Radio 5 live at The Hawthorns

    "Start the lap of honour now Queens Park Rangers. Who would have thought this would have been the final score at 15:00 BST this afternoon?

    "There are thousands of stunned supporters here, and I expect the Rangers fans are just as stunned as the West Brom fans. What a game to turn things round at the bottom of the table."

  35. FULL-TIME in the Championship

    Unbelievable late drama in the Championship! Cardiff equalised in the last minute against Reading to claim a 1-1 draw, while Sheffield Wednesday thought they had won it late on against Huddersfield, but the Terriers equalise in the 89th minute. An equaliser for Bolton - again in the 90th minute - against Blackpool. Eidur Gudjohnson the scorer. You can teach an old dog new tricks.

    Meanwhile, Blackburn have got a third at Leeds to win 3-0.

  36. Team News

    Chelsea

    Chelsea make three changes to the side that beat Hull in their last Premier League match and the big news is that topscorer Diego Costa misses out with a hamstring injury and Loic Remy comes in up front. Cesar Azpilicueta replaces Filipe Luis at left-back and Oscar is in for Ramires.

    Stoke also make three changes after losing against Crystal Palace last time out. In come Philipp Wollscheid, Glenn Whelan and Peter Crouch for Erik Pieters, Marko Arnautovic and Peter Crouch.

    Chelsea XI: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Remy

    Stoke XI: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross, Wollscheid, Wilson; Ireland, Whelan, Nzonzi, Adam; Walters, Diouf

  38. The 35-point target

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Everton midfielder on Final Score

    "It was looking last week that it could 33 or 34 points but I think 35 points will probably keep teams up. I feel the current bottom three will still go down."

  39. Text us on 81111

    Anthony from Birmingham: Michael Carrick is the victim of poor England management. Eriksson and McClaren were too loyal to 4-4-2 and the notion of "one goes forward and one stays back in midfield (Gerrard/Lampard)." Then Capello ignores Carrick in favour of Barry. Carrick must play at Euro 16.

    Harry Le May: I don't think anyone can deny that Southampton have far exceeded expectations this season. However, if they are to progress next season then they desperately need a creative midfield player and Jay Rod to come back firing on all cylinders.

    West Brom 1-4 QPR - Joey Barton (90 mins)

    Barton

    Joey Barton doesn't get many but QPR catch West Brom on the break. Charlie Austin is too strong for some horrible defending, Barton picks up the loose ball and hammers in left-footed at the near post. What a day for QPR and their fans - who got free travel today courtesy of the club. Maybe that's the secret...

    Into injury time at Leicester. The whistles are being sounded by the home fans. Can they hang on? They are doing more than that as Jamie Vardy, through on goal, has a strike saved by Adrian. That's that. A big win for the Foxes.

  52. Post update

    Former England winger Chris Waddle

    "Ander Herrera just passes the ball into the net, a great finish just inside the box. A side-foot finish and it's game over."

  53. GOAL

    Manchester United 3-1 Aston Villa - Ander Herrera (90 mins)

    Herrera

    The master of the calm finish, Ander Herrera with his second of the afternoon puts this one to bed. It comes from a rarely-spotted contested drop ball on halfway, Wayne Rooney wins it and sends Juan Mata away down the right. He gets his head up to find Herrera on the edge of the box, and he calmly passes in off the base of the post.

    Esteban Cambiasso has produced a Rolls Royce of a performance in midfield for Leicester as the Foxes fans party. Still three minutes left though for the Hammers to ruin the mood. They are coming forward.

  62. RED CARD

    West Brom 1-3 QPR - Youssuf Mulumbu (84 mins)

    Mulumbu

    West Brom's day goes from terrible to catastrophic as substitute Youssuf Mulumbu is sent off 13 minutes after coming on. It's a straight red fro a challenge on Joey Barton. They go up for a header and Mulumbu certainly makes contact with Barton's jaw with his arm. How much intent was there? It's not a pretty one.

  63. Post update

    Manchester United 2-1 Aston Villa

    Oh dear. Radamel Falcao lines up a Van Basten style volley, he winds up with style and panache - and then slices it almost behind him. Horrible attempt.

  64. GOAL

    Leicester 2-1 West Ham - Andy King (86 mins)

    King

    That could be absolutely massive. The Foxes fans go wild as Andy King scrambles in one of the ugliest goals you will see today. Andrej Kramaric pulls the ball back to Jamie Vardy, he scuffs his shot and King sticks his toe out and diverts the ball into the net. They all count and Leciester are alive.

  65. Post update

    West Brom 1-3 QPR

    Barton

    QPR may have weathered the West Brom storm.

    First Saido Berahino is denied by Rob Green at point-blank range - Berahino heading goalward after Ideye Brown had knocked down Chris Brunt's left wing cross.

    Then, seconds later, Brunt again dashes down the left. Ideye meets the cross but again Green makes the save. The visitors have around 10 minutes to see this one out and take a big step towards safety.

  66. CLOSE!

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    So, so close for Leicester. Andrej Kramaric looks certain to put the hosts ahead but his powerful shot beats goalkeeper Adrian and is brilliantly blocked on the line by Aaron Cresswell. Superb defending.

    Manchester United 2-1 Aston Villa - Christian Benteke

    Former England winger Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "You won't see a better goal this season than Wayne Rooney's for Manchester United (see 16:36). That is absolutely phenomenal. It was an awkward ball to bring down, but as it bounces Rooney swivels and fires the ball into the top corner. The ball is still very high but he gets right on top of the ball. What a fantastic goal.

    "Christian Benteke's in reply looked like a rehearsed move from the training ground. It was well worked from Aston Villa."

  69. GOAL

    Manchester United 2-1 Aston Villa - Christian Benteke (80 mins)

    Benteke

    One to keep the Real Madrid scouts quiet as David De Gea makes a complete hash of it! Joe Cole puts a low corner in from the right, Christian Benteke hits a low shot straight at the United keeper but somehow it goes right through him. Woeful keeping from an outstanding practitioner of the art.

    A nervy last 10 minutes on the cards?

  70. Post update

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    Last 10 minutes at Leicester. If things stay as they are, the Foxes edge closer to the safety zone. But a six-point gap still looks pretty significant. They would love a winner.

  71. GOAL

    Manchester United 2-0 Aston Villa - Wayne Rooney (79 mins)

    Rooney

    That should settle that. Wayne Rooney scores another excellent goal on a day of them. Angel Di Maria skins his man on the left and crosses in, it's behind Rooney but he brings the ball down with an outstretched left foot. The ball bounces almost chest high but Rooney is able to swivel and bury the shot in the top corner. A fine goal.

  74. CLOSE!

    Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa

    Villa win a free-kick out wide, Leandro Bacuna's delivery is a good one and Jores Okore gets up well to head it wide under heavy pressure.

    Swansea City 2-1 Hull City

    Into the last 20 minutes at Swansea and Hull are struggling to make any impression on their comfortable hosts. They need an equaliser or they will be just three points clear of the drop zone with a horrific run-in.

  76. GREAT SAVE!

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    Where did that come from? Cheikh Kouyate almost gives a quiet Hammers side the lead with a low shot from inside the penalty area that cannons off the post. A great move, as Kouyate heads down to Diafra Sakho, before receiving the return ball, but no cigar. It has been all Leicester.

    Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa

    Former England winger Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Manchester United should be thinking about a change, maybe bringing somebody like Adnan Januzaj on, somebody to just re-introduce a little bit of a spark into their play. The home fans are becoming a bit frustrated and it's gone a little flat. Aston Villa, well they may as well have a go now."

  85. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Southampton

    Still Southampton toil away, still they can't puncture the Everton backline. Sadio Mane wants a penalty for running into Aaron Lennon but there's nothing doing.

  86. YELLOW CARD

    Swansea City 2-1 Hull City

    How Hull would love an equaliser. At the moment they are on the back foot though and only a desperate lunge from Alex Bruce stops Bafetimbi Gomis from breaking through on goal. A yellow card.

  87. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom 1-3 QPR

    West Brom bring on Scandinavian giant Jonas Olsson for Chris Baird, I excitedly thought he might be going up front but he signals to Joleon Lescott that it's three at the back.

  88. CLOSE!

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    Leicester inches away. Ritchie De Laet's mammoth throw is flicked on by Leonardo Ulloa but Jamie Vardy heads into the side netting. Seconds later, Vardy has an even better chance but he strikes wide from inside the penalty area. Two good chances.

  89. Post update

    West Brom 1-3 QPR

    If West Brom get another one QPR will be all over the place. Rob Green has to make a scrambling save to keep out Brown Ideye's deflected shot. QPR have half an hour to hang on.

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former England midfielder on Final Score

    "We had a talk about team-talks and Chris Ramsey will have been saying, 'let's get through the first 10 minutes'. Well, 12 minutes in and they have conceded. It is not necessarily great movement from Victor Anichebe. He just holds his position. It was a decent ball but not a great ball. It is a simple finish."

  91. SUBSTITUTION

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    Kevin Nolan is replaced by Morgan Amalfitano in the centre of midfield. Hammers hoping the attacking Amalfitano can make something happen.

  92. Post update

    Swansea City 2-1 Hull City

    Hull are certainly more fired up this half, as shown by David Meyler earlier. Another rash challenge - this time from Alex Bruce - clatters Bafetimbi Gomis and the Swansea man is now limping. The Tigers at least have some fight for this.

  93. Post update

    Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa

    Former England winger Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Aston Villa need to get a player like Carles Gil or Jack Grealish on - somebody who can run with purpose. Yes Villa have been frustrating Manchester United, but they're not hurting the home side. United's pace seems to have dropped. They've lost the quick rhythm they showed in the first half."

  94. GOAL

    West Brom 1-3 QPR - Victor Anichebe (58 mins)

    Anichebe

    A lifeline for West Brom! A tester for QPR! Victor Anichebe drags the home side back into the game, planting a header down into the ground and into the net after good work on the left by Saido Berahino. Will QPR hit panic stations?

  95. Post update

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    Skew o'clock from Leicester's Jeff Schlupp. The Leicester winger was played into space on the left of the penalty area by David Nugent but his cuts across the ball and his shot flies into the crowd.

  96. PENALTY APPEAL

    West Brom 0-3 QPR

    QPR hungry for more, hungry for four. Chris Brunt sees a penalty appeal against him after the ball hits him plum on the hand - he's a bit lucky to get away with that.Albion have been wretched so far, Craig Gardner spurning a good chance after Victor Anichebe held it up for him.

  97. Latest scores

  98. SUBSTITUTION

    Swansea City 2-1 Hull City

    Angel Rangel replaces the injured Kyle Naughton for Swansea on the right. Hull look to have moved into a 4-3-2 formation after David Meyler's daft red card.

  99. Post update

    West Brom 0-3 QPR

    QPR still playing like a team full of confidence. Mauricio Isla plays a neat one-two to burst in to the area, he tries to square it for Charlie Austin but a desperate Baggies defender gets in the way.

    Swansea City 2-1 Hull City

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Everton midfielder on Final Score

    "That is definitely a red card for Meyler. He has gone over the ball and he could have caused a serious injury. Steve Bruce has probably said he needs more fight but that is over-stepping the mark."

  103. Post update

    Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa

    Ashley Young cuts in from the left, backs up a defender and tries to plant one in the far corner, a low curling effort which bounces just wide of the post. United in need of a second goal.

  104. RED CARD TO HULL CITY

    Swansea City 2-1 Hull City - David Meyler

    Meyler

    Ridiculous challenge by David Meyler. Hull boss Steve Bruce looks furious with the decision but the midfielder's lunging tackle into Kyle Naughton's shin was high and worthy of a straight red. That is exactly what he got. Just seconds after his side got back into the game as well.

    Naughton's afternoon is also over as he is carried off and he doesn't look good.

  105. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Southampton

    Same story so far, Southampton bossing the play but they can't break through. Have they got a plan B?

  106. Post update

    Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa

    Former England winger Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "Manchester United gave it away and fair play to Aston Villa, they are committing players forward. Christian Benteke did really well to play in Andreas Weimann but he couldn't reach the cut-back."

  107. CLOSE!

    Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa

    Benteke

    That is a real chance for Aston Villa! Andreas Weimann strolls past Antonio Valencia and into the box, his pullback is fine for Christian Benteke, but he never looks set and slides one over the top. Big chance.

  108. GOAL

    Swansea City 2-1 Hull City - Paul McShane (50 mins)

    The Tigers are back in it. Paul McShane finishes from close range after a wicked delivery from a Robbie Brady free kick.

    It all came from a free-kick after Dame N'Doye and Ashley Williams got involved in a bit of handbags at 10 paces. Both cautioned and Swansea are doubly punished.

  109. Post update

    West Brom 0-3 QPR

    West Brom need to do some major surgery and decide Victor Anichebe is the scalpel they were missing in that first-half horror show. He's on for Stephane Sessegnon.

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    Early pressure from Leicester as they force a corner. Is it the perfect start to the second half? No, as Robert Huth heads over the bar. Good tempo from the Foxes.

    Steve Bower

    BBC Match of the Day commentator

    "Manchester United had to be patient but they are in front. It has not been a vintage performance but Ander Herrera's goal just before half-time has given them the lead. Wayne Rooney thought he should have had an earlier penalty, but his side still lead at the break."

  128. HALF-TIME

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    Leicester started brightly but West Ham more than deserved their leveller by the break. The Foxes are six points adrift of safety as results stand and, with fourth from bottom in Sunderland in action against Newcastle tomorrow, they know the importance of maximum points.

    BBC Sport's Rob Westall at Liberty Stadium: "Steve Bruce's side have it all to do if they are to get anything out of this match with goals from Ki Sung-Yeung and Bafetimbi Gomis putting the home side firmly in control. Gomis' spectacular strike will be sure to dominate most conversations as the fans here sip on their beverages at the break."

    "It's been coming, and it's a very good goal. Ander Herrera makes it look easy though. Manchester United had been lacking that final bit of quality but this time they got it. Every time Ashley Young gets the ball out wide he goes past Alan Hutton so easily."

  132. GOAL

    Manchester United 1-0 Aston Villa - Ander Herrera (43 mins)

    Herrara

    Manchester United finally breakthrough via the medium of the good old-fashioned toe poke.

    Daley Blind gets away on the left, he cuts it back for Ander Herrara who takes a touch and then as he's closed down, toe-bungs one under Brad Guzan and into the net. Breakthrough.

  133. Post update

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    West Ham are pushing as Leicester teeter on the brink. The Foxes are so open, with just two centre backs rather than usual three, and the Hammers are enjoying the space. Still level though.

  134. GOAL

    West Brom 0-3 QPR - Bobby Zamora (43 mins)

    Zamora

    What a goal! Bobby Zamora with a cracker, an absolute cracker! Eric Cantona would be proud of this.

    Zamora chases a hopeful ball over the top, outpaces Joleon Lescott and lifts the lob first time over the head of Boaz Myhill, kissing the crossbar on its way in. Tremendous finish.

  135. Post update

    Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

    Daley Blind has a shot with his wrong foot, his right, and it's a fairly tame one, easily held by Brad Guzan. So far, so good for Tim Sherwood's visitors.

  136. Post update

    Swansea City 2-0 Hull City

    The Tigers? Hull are more like pussy cats at the moment. Swansea passing through a very demoralised-looking Hull side and this could get worse for the visitors. Steve Bruce needs half time, Still more than five minutes to hold on though.

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham

    Alistair Mann

    BBC Match of the Day commentator at the King Power Stadium

    "Sam Allardyce may feel his West Ham side should be in front, never mind level. Kevin Nolan's missed opportunity was one of three or four before Cheikhou Kouyate found the net. It's one thing playing in this bold manner, but Leicester look pretty vulnerable when they're out of possession - and they've been out of possession for long periods of this half."

  140. GOAL

    Swansea City 2-0 Hull City - Bafetimbi Gomis (37 mins)

    Gomis

    Take the cork out, that is champagne football. The ball is headed into the penalty area, Michael Dawson half heads clear, and Bafetimbi Gomis launches himself into the air, before acrobatically volleying into the top corner. Hull are in trouble.

  141. GOAL

    West Brom 0-2 QPR - Charlie Austin (37 mins)

    Austin

    Fox in the box! Charlie Austin with a poacher's goal for QPR, who are flying now. A corner from the right is flicked on by Niko Kranjcar, and Austin is unmarked to stoop and apply a flying header into the net. Massive. Massive!

  142. Post update

    Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

    Still goalless at Old Trafford, both sides having just one shot on target so far. Villa full-back Alan Hutton has rolled his ankle clearing his lines but looks like he can continue.

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Everton midfielder on Final Score

    "The goal Leicester have conceded... credit to Kouyate, but it's more about Leicester being open defensively. Through the whole season, when Leicester have been on the front foot they have been exposed."

  144. CLOSE!

    Everton 1-0 Southampton

    Leon Osman back on the pitch after some treatment and almost grabs the second. Aaron Lennon finds Arouna Kone on the right, his cross is met by Osman but his header deflects off a defender and wide.

    From the corner, Phil Jagielka heads over the top.

  145. Post update

    Everton 1-0 Southampton

    Phil Jagielka and then Leon Osman both in the wars in quick succession for Everton, who are unhappy with Shane long for the second one. Osman was strong to clear a corner and was clobbered by Long in his follow-through. Long was trying to win the header though.

  146. GOAL

    Leicester 1-1 West Ham - Cheikhou Kouyate (32 mins)

    Kouyate

    The fun doesn't last for Leicester as West Ham deservedly pull level. Very simple too. Alex Song dinks the ball into the penalty area, Jeff SchLupp makes a cumbersome attempt to head clear, and Cheikhou Kouyate controls with his chest before slotting home.

  147. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom 0-1 QPR

    QPR make a change as goalscorer Eduardo Vargas is replaced by Niko Kranjcar. Vargas injured his knee landing on the side of the pitch, he then rolled off the pitch, play carried on, so he rolled the other way back onto the pitch and the referee stopped play.

    Canny stuff.

  148. SUBSTITUTION

    Swansea City 1-0 Hull City

    Hull are second best all over at the moment and their fixture list won't give them much room for comfort. They still have Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool and Southampton to play...

    Everton indebted to Tim Howard in goal again as he reacts well to beat clear James Ward-Prowse's effort from 20 yards. Southampton must surely score soon if they keep this up...?

  152. ACROBATIC EFFORT

    Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

    Wayne Rooney launches into an overhead kick after good work from Antonio Valencia - but he miscues his effort behind him. Not got the angles right on this occasion.

  153. WHAT A MISS!

    Leicester 1-0 West Ham

    How has he missed that? Kevin Nolan hang your head in shame. The West Ham midfielder looks certain to power home the equaliser but, as Stewart Downing's sweet right-wing cross finds him unmarked yards out, he heads wide. Shocking.

  154. CLOSE!

    Everton 1-0 Southampton

    James Ward-Prowse goes very close to a leveller for Saints, finding the outside of the side-netting with a curling 20-yard free-kick. Tim Howard was beaten there, no chance.

    Former England winger Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "That's a fantastic strike from Marcos Rojo (see 15:23), there was nothing on with Aston Villa camped in their own half, two banks of four. Brad Guzan makes a great save with his fingertips. Villa are giving the ball back to United so cheaply at the minute, Tim Sherwood will be frustrated."

  157. CLOSE!

    Leicester 1-0 West Ham

    Scrambles! A sigh of relief for Leicester as West Ham cause carnage down the hosts' left. Aaron Cresswell plays a one-two with Kevin Nolan, crosses low to cause an almighty bundle as, first Cheikhou Kouyate and then Diafra Sakho, are unable to force the ball home.

  158. GREAT SAVE!

    Manchester United 0-0 Aston Villa

    What a hit! Marcos Rojo lets fly from a full 25 yards, a real beauty of a left-footer, flying into the net until Brad Guzan makes a stunning one-handed tip over the bar!

    Ki Sung-Yueng's seventh goal of the season leaves Hull just three points above the drop zone as results stand. The Tigers need to start roaring. The way they conceded that goal though is not the way to fight relegation. Where were the defence?

    Former England winger Chris Waddle

    BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

    "We've already seen Aston Villa's threat on the counter attack, with waves of white shirts coming forward at speed once they've won the ball. Manchester United have started the better but Wayne Rooney doesn't look as sharp as he has been recently, maybe he's a bit leggy from the international fixtures."

  163. CLOSE!

    West Brom 0-1 QPR

    QPR are just a point shy of safety in the as it stands table. But they'll have to keep a clean sheet to stay there, and they look fragile at the back. West Brom go so close to a leveller as another cross from the right makes its way through to Brown Ideye in the middle, the ball just hits him on the kenee and skids past the post.

  164. GOAL

    Swansea City 1-0 Hull City - Ki Sung-Yueng (18 mins)

    Ki

    A big moment at the bottom of the table as Hull start looking even more anxiously over their shoulders. After some patient passing, Jonjo Shelvey takes a hopeful low shot from 25 yards, the ball skids off goalkeeper Allan McGregor and Ki Sung-Yueng is on hand to tap in the rebound.

  165. Championship latest

    Bottom side Blackpool, nearly relegated to League One, have gone ahead against North West rivals Bolton through Michael Jacobs.

    Reading took a very early lead against Cardiff, as Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak slots home after just four minutes. The Royals are clear of the dropzone with their opposition also safe in mid-table.

    Jagielka

    Everton scramble their way ahead through skipper Phil Jagielka. It's a Leighton Baines corner which is not cleared correctly, Gareth Barry is able to put the ball back in the mixer and Jagielka steers a low shot into the corner under pressure.

  168. PENALTY SAVED

    Leicester 1-0 West Ham

    How costly could that be? David Nugent steps forward confidently enough but his penalty to the goalkeeper's left is parried away by the diving Adrian. The home fans have their heads in hands.

  169. GOAL

    West Brom 0-1 QPR - Eduardo Vargas (15 mins)

    Vargas

    That could be a big goal for QPR's survival hopes! It's a cracking strike too, Eduardo Vargas picking up the pieces from a long ball downfield, stepping across his man and then firing an angled shot across the keeper and into the net.

  170. PENALTY TO LEICESTER

    Leicester 1-0 West Ham

    Leonardo Ulloa breaks into the box from the left and Aaron Cresswell rashly takes his legs away. Clear penalty and a real chance for Leicester.

    West Brom 0-0 QPR

    Tony Pulis's side settling into their rhythm now, Saido Berahino tries to wriggle clear and get a shot away but QPR just about do enough. A cross then comes in from Darren Fletcher and Brown Ideye heads over the top.
