  1. That's all folks

    That is all from us for today's football, folks. We'll back for tomorrow's action. Thank you and goodnight.

  2. Tomorrow's action

    Manchester City v Chelsea

    MOTD's Guy Mowbray:  "Last season's corresponding fixture came too soon to be a blockbuster, and this being even earlier feels something of a waste.

    "On last weekend's displays, City are favourites. Their performance at West Brom was magnificent and Vincent Kompany's goal celebrationsand post-match words outlined a point to prove to those who've written them out of title contention. Some will have already changed their minds!

    "Overshadowed by 'medicgate', Chelsea were a level down from their best against Swansea. They'll have to be better to get the point Jose Mourinho would gladly take here. If they don't, he might need a doctor."

  4. Tomorrow's action

    Crystal Palace v Arsenal

    MOTD's Jonathan Pearce:  "Arsenal haven't lost their opening two league games since the first ever Premier League season 23 years ago. They bounced back to win the FA Cup and League Cup that season.

    "But a defeat at Selhurst where they're unbeaten in 12 visits would rock the club to its core. They could almost kiss goodbye to any title dream.

    "Palace have pace in wide areas to hurt an Arsenal side which was below par against West Ham, although they had no fortune.

    "They always seem to have their share in this game though, and if the real Arsenal turn up they should have too much for Palace. If they go there half-baked, they could lose again."

  5. Tomorrow's action

    There are two Premier League games tomorrow and they promise to be pretty damn good. First up is Crystal Palace v Arsenal at 13:30 BST, followed by Manchester City v Chelsea at 16:00. See. I told you.

  7. Lawro's predictions

    So, how did Lawro do in his predictions this week? He went for wins for Sunderland, Tottenham and West Brom and Swansea to draw with Newcastle. OK, not so great then. But he did back Leicester to win at West Ham.

    QPR 1-0 Cardiff

    It is half-time at Loftus Road and QPR lead 1-0 against Cardiff. They have Clint Hill's header from a corner to thank for that. Good old Clint Hill, where would the Super Hoops be if they couldn't wheel him out every other season for a Championship campaign after all their big-money signings have left post-relegation?

  11. Premier League recap

    So, to recap (so you know what you're getting on MOTD tonight), Norwich claimed their first Premier League win under Alex Neil with a 3-1 victory at Sunderland, whose fans will be worried. Very worried. Ditto their local rivals Newcastle, who were beaten 2-0 at Swansea after having a man sent off. 

    Tottenham chucked away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with a spirited Stoke and West Brom nullified Watford to claim a goalless draw at Vicarage Road.

    Everton thumped Southampton 3-0 and Leicester made it two wins out of two to beat West Ham and go top of the table. Yep, it is the second week of the Premier League and Leicester are top. All hail the Tinkerman!

    Tottenham 2-2 Stoke

    Mark Hughes to BBC Sport: “After the break we understood what we needed to do better, talked about it in the break and came out with more resolve. Our hard yards were good and we started to affect the game. 

    "The substitutions helped us, we just started to retain the ball in the final third and started to create chances. If the game had gone a little bit longer who knows we might have been greedy and claimed two more points.

    " Stephen Ireland’s a very good player. I know the quality that he has. Since he’s come to Stoke he probably hasn’t had the opportunity he think he deserves but he knows the respect I have for him. We’re strong this year, we’ll be ok. 

    "We just need to manage games better than we did in the first half and if we do that we’ll do well. The spirit has been great. The key is that we’re bringing good players in and good guys as well.”

    West Ham 1-2 Leicester

    West Ham boss Slaven Bilic speaking to BBC Sport: "It is a bad result of course after a good start. We didn't play good enough in the first half. We started well but after that we were second best. 

    "We lost the game in the first half. Two-nil down is very difficult to come back from. We are very disappointed.

    On substituting Reece Oxford at half-time:  "It was not that he played worse than the rest of the team. He played well but our passing was really slow in the first half and with Pedro we were much quicker in tempo.

    "We scored a gaol early enough to play our normal game but with more aggression. We had a great chance for the equaliser through Diafra Sakho, I was expecting us to score a second, but we didn't.

    On Adrian's sending off:  "Initially I thought it was not a red card but then I saw the replay and it is dangerous play. It was obvious Adrian didn't mean to cause harm. I am more than sure it was not deliberate. He was just following the ball and was unlucky."

    Watford 0-0 West Brom

    Watford manager Quique Flores to BBC Sport: "I am happy with the performance of the team. We planned for the match and it was difficult to play against West Brom. We tried to find space to attack and created chances. West Brom are solid at the back. We were close to getting a good result. 

    "Most important is that the fans are happy. We are working like a club, like a family.

    "The players feel good and are full of confidence. They are competitive in the matches."

    "A little bit of naivety has cost us, 10 men and your backs are against the wall. We have to dust ourselves down and concentrate on the Manchester United game next week.

    "I'm not too sure whether it was a second booking but we knew he would be a danger and unfortunately we fell into the trap."

It is frustrating, we got one back and I thought we would get another but it didn't land for us.

    "I thought the red card was a bit harsh, it was a high foot but I am sure it was accidental. I ended up in goal but fortunately I didn't have too much to do."

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes to Sky Sports: “First half it wasn’t what we were looking for, we allowed Spurs a little bit too much time, too much space, and played into their hands. I’m disappointed with both goals, really. 

    "At 2-0 it was a big task for us but we understood what we needed to do, disrupt their rhythm, and do the hard yards. I think the substitutions helped, we got more craft on later in the game and that opened things up. We got our reward and we were by far the better team in the second half. 

    "I’ve got a lot of good players who are disappointed when I don’t pick them. We were able to bring good quality on that affect the game. I’m delighted with the second-half performance, it wasn’t a complete 90-minute performance, but delighted to take the point.”

    "We have to discuss with the players how we go on. It was the same in pre-season and you hoped it would change but it is not changing. Myself as well, I am responsible for that, no doubt. "

    Together we have to find out if we can find the solution. Expectation we high, we have to find the reason otherwise we have no chance. There were many good players, Yann showed he is a good player. We have to find out the reason, they can talk and I can talk."

    Unbelievable! And like that, in a flash, Stoke are level. Stephen Ireland charges in to the box to receive a forward pass and crosses for Mame Diouf to glance a header past Hugo lloris and in. At least I think Diouf got a head to it. It might have just gone straight in from Ireland's cross. The Stoke fans don't care. They go absolutely wild.

    Tricky feet from the excellent Wes Hoolahan as he wriggles his way into the box, evading one challenge and then another, but a Sunderland defender gets a foot in just as he is about to pull the trigger.

    The fourth official's board goes up and Hoolahan is called to make way for Bradley Johnson. Sunderland will be more than a bit relieved with his exit.

    Could that goal right on the cusp of half-time from Nacer Chadli prove decisive? On the basis of the first half, yes. Tottenham have been largely in control from the off. Stoke had a very good chance to level but Diouf failed to convert and they paid the price. It is a long way back from here.

    The half-time whistle goes with Leicester holding a two-goal lead, but some late controversy as Diafra Sakho raced on to a ball into the box, knocked it past Kasper Schmeichel, who had come off his line, and the West Ham forward went tumbling to the ground.
