  1. Goodbye

    Hands up who honestly believed Leicester City would be sitting at the top of the Premier League table after 13 games? Thanks partly to another Jamie Vardy goal, the Foxes are looking down on the rest.

    Manchester City can still replace them but need to score three times in the second half against Liverpool. Follow live text commentary of the game on the BBC Sport website.

    You can also follow the very latest from El Clasico where Barcelona have established a 3-0 lead at Real Madrid. 

    Don't forget there is Match of the Day Social starting at 22:00 GMT on the BBC Sport website. Thanks for your company.

  2. 'Confidence low'

    Everton 4-0 Aston Villa

    Quote Message: We played against a very good team with players who are used to their manager and play a certain way and they did it very well. It was hard – probably too hard – for us to cope with them. The first 45 minutes was very poor but the second half was a little bit better, although we were already 3-0 down so Everton probably slowed down a little bit. We know that the mission is very difficult but nobody will let it go. The confidence in the team is low but I still think there is quality in the team." from Remi Garde Aston Villa manager

  3. Manager reaction

    Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, speaking to BBC Sport: "We should be standing here with three points. We're disappointed but there were a lot of positives. 

    "(On Andre Ayew's penalty) He's induced the penalty but the referee has fallen for it. 

    "The players are beginning to believe in themselves a lot more, they know they have nothing to fear. 

    "I'm very proud to be Bournemouth manager tonight. there's a lot of stuff to look forward to in the future on the back of that."

  4. 'World class'

    Man City 1-3 Liverpool

    BBC Radio Manchester

    Former Manchester City defender Paul Lake

    "You talk about world class players, Sergio Aguero is certainly that. He had hardly had a touch until now, but now turns a man and curls the ball into the corner.

    "Confidence comes with goals. Now there is a little bit of a spark."

  6. Manager reaction

    Swansea 2-2 Bornemouth

    Swansea manager Garry Monk, speaking to BBC Sport: "To be 0-2 down, the players showed great bravery and fantastic spirit to get back. 

    "You could feel that tension, it affected us with the ball and our confidence. We need to build that side of it by putting a run of results together, 

    "This is a point gained and a result to put us on the road to getting our confidence. Overall we have to be happy with a point."

  9. 'Rabbit in headlights'

    Man City 0-3 Liverpool

    BBC Radio Manchester

    Former Manchester City defender Paul Lake

    "Rabbit caught in headlights time. There is no leadership in the back four at all and the fans are stunned. It was an inventive backheel from Emre Can and a great run by Roberto Firmino, but the Manchester City players were just looking at each other. 

    "If they aren't careful, this could become a huge embarrassment."

  10. GOAL - Man City 0-3 Liverpool

    Roberto Firmino (32 mins)

    What on earth has happened to Manchester City?. Liverpool extend their lead thanks to a brilliant team goal finished off by Roberto Firmino's first goal for the club. It's one way traffic and Jurgen Klopp's Reds are making a mockery of the table.

  11. 'Worst display of the season'

    Newcastle 0-3 Leicester

    Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren: “That was the worst performance we have had this season and it is very disappointing. I understand the frustration of the fans and we will get back on the training field on Monday to get consistency back in our results. That was nowhere near good enough.

    “I can give nothing but praise to Leicester. That is as good a team performance against us. They were hardworking, pressed and we couldn’t handle the intensity. On the counter, they are very quick and sharp.

    “Today is an opportunity we haven’t taken. There is still a long way to go before we get any consistency.”

  12. GOAL - Real Madrid 0-2 Barcelona

    Neymar (39 mins)

    Rafael Benitez's first El Clasico as manager of Real Madrid is turning into a disaster. Neymar doubles the lead in a game that is becoming increasingly tetchy. Real players claim Neymar is off side when he fires home from angle inside the area but the referee gives it.

  13. GOAL - Man City 0-2 Liverpool

    Philippe Coutinho (23 mins)

    Amazing scenes at the Etihad. Liverpool double their lead, Philippe Coutinho side-footing home after an excellent pass by Roberto Firmino. Jurgen Klopp celebrates as wildly as any Reds fan in the ground. It's a fully deserved lead.

  15. Manager reaction

    West Brom 2-1 Arsenal

    West Brom manager Tony Pulis, speaking to BBC Sport: "It’s such an important win, Arsenal are an exceptional side, at times we were fortunate but the hard work and determination of the lads - we got beat here the last couple of games without deserving to - there are such small margins and it’s dropped our side today.

    "This is a difficult job, as difficult as I have had for lots of reasons that I don’t want to go into now, but we need time to turn things around. If we don’t get results we won't get that time. We needed to get our home form going and to do that against one of the top sides in the league was fantastic."

  16. Manager reaction

    Chelsea 1-0 Norwich

    Quote Message: Diego Costa missed two big chances in the first half and if he did not score it would be a big 50 kilo on his back but he scored and he could breathe easy. If the result is fake, it is fake because we should have scored more goals. I have two big games to watch - Real Madrid-Barcelona and the Portuguese Cup so I think a good meal in front of the television." from Jose Mourinho Chelsea manager

  18. Manager reaction

    Chelsea 1-0 Norwich

    Norwich City boss Alex Neil: "I am disappointed. I thought our players worked really hard, I felt we gave Chelsea very little and we worked really hard.

    "We put some fresh legs on as the game went on, and tried to create problems. Arguably we could have done more but I am happy with my players.

    "We've done it at Liverpool, at Manchester City and here - gone to the so-called bigger clubs and put on a show. It is just disappointing we had that one lapse of concentration."

  19. Manager reaction

    Newcastle 0-3 Leicester


    Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri: “I am very proud because the players played like a team. They played good football and the fans who came here enjoyed it. I want to thank the fans and the players for making a fantastic performance.

    “We must continue this. Now arrive the big teams and we can only play and see what happens. It is good for Jamie Vardy and everybody. He is very confident and the team-mates believe something can happen when he gets the ball.

    “I also had Gabriel Batistuta score in 11 consecutive matches, but Jamie came from the non-league and he looks very confident. When a team wins and plays well, the manager is always happy."

  20. GOAL - Real Madrid 0-1 Barcelona

    Luis Suarez (11 mins)

    The 18th Barcelona La Liga goal in a row scored by either Neymar or Luis Suarez. Sergi Roberto, starting ahead of Lionel Messi, plays a brilliant through ball to Suarez, who hits it first time from 16 yards out.

    Southampton 0-1 Stoke

    Stoke manager Mark Hughes: "I think in terms of clear-cut chances we were miles ahead of Southampton. I don't think Jack Butland had a save to make and that's illustrative of how well we played - and we broke with real purpose too. 

    "Southampton are a good team but we coped with everything they have to offer and didn't allow them to show any quality. 

    "We're delighted - it's an important win for us. We could have finished off more of our chances but overall it was a good performance from us."

  22. Manager reaction

    Chelsea 1-0 Norwich

    Quote Message: Me and the fans didn't deserve to have our heart in our hands in the last four minutes. It is the pressure of the bad results, that is normal, but they coped well. The only thing we didn't do was score more from the chances we had. We should have scored at least two and breathe easier but it is difficult for us to score goals and to keep a clean sheet against a team who plays defensively." from Jose Mourinho Chelsea manager

    "We created some good chances but they were dangerous on the counter-attack. They had a very good organisation in defence and you have to have very good quality on the last pass, the last cross, and we didn't bring that."

    Southampton 0-1 Stoke

    Southampton attempting to build up a head of steam as they have an extended spell of pressure on the edge of the box. They can't quite tease an opening and any direct approach is being superbly dealt with by Ryan Shawcross. Dusan Tadic has a sight of goal but can only shank a strike well wide.


    West Brom 2-1 Arsenal

    Fireworks at The Hawthorns. Jonas Olsson wrestles Olivier Giroud to the ground after an Arsenal free-kick is floated into the Baggies penalty area. No penalty says referee Mark Clattenburg.


    West Brom 2-1 Arsenal

    This isn't Arsenal's day. Substitute Mikel Arteta is forced off by injury and on comes Mathieu Flamini. Two off injured, his team is wonder Arsene Wenger has a face like thunder.

  96. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 0-0 Norwich

    Kurt Zouma loses his marker at a corner to meet the ball on the volley - but he puts it over! A very decent opening for the Blues. They've lost three in a row don't forget.

    Everton 3-0 Aston Villa

    Aston Villa were abysmal in the first half but they have their first chance. It comes from a terrible touch from Ramiro Funes Mori, it lets Jordan Veretout in but Tim Howard is sprightly off his line to make the save. 


    West Brom 2-1 Arsenal

    So close for Arsenal as Mesut Ozil's left-foot low shot hits a post and rebounds to safety.

  100. CLOSE!

    Southampton 0-1 Stoke

    Almost a great start to the second half for Stoke as Xherdan Shaqiri shoots over! They caught the Saints cold there.

  101. KICK-OFF

    David Talbot: How many Vardys do we never see at clubs like Newcastle, because of the saturation of foreign fluff?

    Everton 3-0 Aston Villa

    The players are back out, looks like a change is imminent for Villa. Carlos Sanchez is not on yet but he looks ready.

    Oh - now he is on. He replaces Idrissa Gana.

  106. League One update

    Coventry look certain to go to the top of the table as they lead Gillingham, who led them on goal difference at kick-off, 4-0 at half-time. Third-placed Walsall are drawing 0-0 at home to Sheffield United, Burton, who started the day fourth, trail 1-0 at Bury and fellow promotion hopefuls Wigan lead 1-0 at home to Shrewsbury.

  107. Leicester top of the table

    Remember the lukewarm reaction to Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City appointment? Well, his team are currently top of the Premier League table, with one point more than Manchester United and two more than Manchester City, who entertain Liverpool at 17:30 GMT.

  108. Championship update

    Just seven first-half goals in the 3pm kick-offs. James Henry has equalised for Wolves to make it 1-1 at Ipswich while it is the same scoreline at MK Dons after Moussa Dembele levelled for Fulham. Blackburn lead 1-0 at Preston and Reading are 2-0 up at home to Bolton.

  109. Manager reaction

    Watford 1-2 Man Utd

    Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores, speaking to BBC Sport: "We deserved a draw in the second half. It was difficult to play with the wind in the first half, same for them in the second half, but this is football.

    "We tried in the first half but we could not. At half-time we had to forget and play a match for 45 minutes. 

    "In the Premier League I know that we are able to be competitive. We played against Manchester United, but they could not win it until the last moment. I am sure that the fans know that this team can do anything."

    Everton 3-0 Aston Villa

    Romelu Lukaku

    Romelu Lukaku's goal was his 50th in the Premier League. Only Robbie Fowler (92), Michael Owen (91), Wayne Rooney (71) and Cristiano Ronaldo (54) scored more before their 23rd birthday.

  111. League One update

    Jacob Murphy has a hat-trick after scoring again for Coventry on 44 minutes and Tony Mowbray's side lead 4-0 at half-time against Gillingham thanks to four goals in 10 minutes.  

  112. Vardy does it!

    Fair to say Jamie Vardy equaling Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring in 10 consecutive Premier League matches is dividing opinion on Final Score.

    Danny Mills: "Jamie Vardy is in fantastic form but is he world class? No, not yet. How much would you pay for him? Would you pay £10m for him?" 

    Garth Crooks: "This a time to be congratulating Jamie Vardy - and in answer to Danny's question I would have to pay that if I wanted him."

    Incredible! Hats off to Jamie Vardy as he equals the record for scoring in 10 straight Premier League games. The England man celebrates wildly after cutting inside Moussa Sissoko to score. Brilliant by the Leicester striker.

    "What this performance says to me is Aston Villa's problems weren't just down to Tim Sherwood - the owners have to realise that now." 

  124. GREAT SAVE!

    Chelsea 0-0 Norwich

    Seconds after Norwich had a shot well blocked in the goalmouth Diego Costa has a GREAT chance to put the hosts ahead - but John Ruddy saves brilliantly with his feet.

  125. 'Villa's comical defending'

    Everton 3-0 Aston Villa

    Danny Mills

    Former England defender on Final Score

    "I cannot wait for Martin Keown to destroy Aston Villa's defending on Match of the day this evening. It is comical - the ball bounced three times in the penalty area!"  

  126. GOAL - Everton 3-0 Aston Villa

    Ross Barkley (42 mins)

    Shambles. An absolute shambles in the Aston Villa penalty area. Ugo Ehiogu, Gareth Southgate, Paul McGrath, Shaun Teale, any one of them would have prevented this goal.

    Romelu Lukaku helps the ball on to Arouna Kone but between Brad Guzan and Micah Richards it should be easily dealt with. Instead they hesitate, Guzan can't gather the ball in, Guzan has two attempts at catching the bobbling ball before Ross Barkley arrives and thumps home. His second of the day, into two open goals.

    Mikel Arteta (own goal, 40 mins)

    Mikel Arteta scores an own goal

    A shocker for Arsenal as they concede again. It's all down to James McClean who whips a cross into the Gunners area and Mikel Arteta can only look on as he puts the ball into his own net while trying to clear.

  128. League One update

    Coventry open the scoring in their second-against-first meeting with Gillingham at the Ricoh Arena thanks to a goal from Jacob Murphy on 34 minutes.
