    West Brom last met Watford  in the top flight in the 1985-86 season, and lost 5-1. 

    Goalfest on the cards again then?

    Aston Villa v Man Utd

    Wayne Rooney had 111 touches of the ball at Villa Park last season, but just 44 on Friday night.

    Is he struggling to play the role he is playing in Louis Van Gaal's team?

  9. Nothing the Mata

    Aston Villa v Man Ud

    Juan Mata

    It may not have happened for Wayne Rooney, but it did for Juan Mata.

  10. What's wrong Wayne?

    Aston Villa v Man Utd

    Man Utd

    Not a good night for Wayne Rooney, and you chances of scoring are not going to be helped when you only have one touch all game inside the opposition area...

  17. Mbemba's monumental task

    Swansea Newcastle

    It was a thankless task, especially after Daryl Janmat was sent off, but Chancel Mbemba did not do a bad job dealing with the brilliant Jefferson Montero.

    The only blot on his copybook was that he turned up to the game like this...


    ...and not like this...

  21. Jan's not the man

    Swansea v Newcastle

    Daryl Janmat

    Daryl Janmaat was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 41st minute. 

    The earliest player to receive two yellows since Chris Smalling (39) v Man City in November 2014.

  22. Post update

    Swansea v Newcastle


    Bafetimbi Gomis has scored seven goals in his last eight Premier League appearances.

    He can sometimes look like Bambi on ice, but that was a composed finish.

  23. Post update

    Swansea v Newcastle

    Where to next? Swansea as they take on Newcastle. The Swans impressed against Chelsea, did they carry that on into today?

    Tottenham v Stoke


    Stoke are reinventing themselves and have a lot more flair players in attack, but is it coming at the cost of their physicality? Eric Dier reckons so, saying that the players are smaller than they used to be, and that he had targeted the near post as a weakness to exploit.

    Tottenham v Stoke

    Harry Kane

    Harry Kane spent a lot of the game dropping deep to help build attacks. When he went off after one hour, Tottenham, capitulated. Coincidence?

  41. Kone you believe it

    Southampton v Everton

    Arouna Kone

    Arouna Kone you golden-haired wonder. 

    The striker has had something of a renaissance at Everton - he has had a hand in more league goals in his last two appearances for the Toffees (three) than he did in his previous 17 (two).

    Southampton v Everton


    You might have missed this, Romelu Lukaku struck a fan with a stray shot during the warm-up, but proved he's all heart by apologising and presenting a t-shirt to the woman in question. 

    The home fans warmly applauded the striker's gesture, while manager Roberto Martinez later joked that his player would have to make hitting spectators with the ball part of his pre-match routine. 

  44. Saints' suckerpunch

    Southampton v Everton

    Image caption: Ross Barkley (20) picked up the ball after the Southampton corner, fed a pass to Arouna Kone who in turn found goalscorer Romelu Lukaku.

    Just 17 seconds after Southampton took their corner, Everton went down the other end of the pitch to score. Are Southampton overcommitting in attack?

    Southampton v Everton

    Right then, off we go to the south coast as Southampton host Everton. 

    Southampton had gone eight Premier League matches without a clean sheet before this game, conceding more than once in seven of them. 

    Can they keep Everton at bay?

  49. A tale of two keepers

    Match of the Day

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former England midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

    West Ham

    "The referee got one decision right and one wrong for me. Kasper Schmeichel's incident was a penalty. It was a penalty but I don't think it was a sending off.

    "Adrian's was a red card. It was dangerous play and he has to deal with that red card."

  50. Man of the Match?

    Shinjo Okazaki

    Leicester striker Shinji Okazaki came off after 62 minutes but not before he had scored his first goal since his summer move from German side Mainz and also had a hand in the Foxes second goal.

    Do you agree with our choice of Man of the Match?

    Great work from Jamie Vardy in the build-up to that goal. The former non-league man has been on fire this year.

    All settled in? Good, then here is the running order for tonight's Match of the Day.

  73. Another great day of football

    Claudio Ranieri

    Two games, two wins. Claudio Ranieri can get away with looking a little silly standing next to an oversized bear because it is all going very well for the Leicester boss. 

    An unfamiliar name at the top of the table, controversial red cards and stunning comebacks. We've got it all on Match of the Day tonight.
