    The show is ending now, as is this page. Thanks for joining us tonight.

    Our live text build-up to Sunderland v Newcastle, Manchester United v City and the rest starts at 10:00 GMT tomorrow.

    Actually I'm doing that one too so I'd better go to bed.

    Don't forget, clocks go back tonight - so we all get an extra hour in bed.

  3. What the papers say

    Norwich 0-1 West Brom

    Birmingham Mail: "West Brom soaked up Norwich pressure early on before imposing themselves as an attacking force. It was by far Albion’s most adventurous display in an attacking sense."

    Norwich Evening News: City looked shell-shocked and struggled for a reaction, with a string of calamitous passes and slack defending leading to Ruddy having to make a sprawling stop from Brunt’s angled drive in the 64th minute.

    Telegraph: Alex Neil says he is determined not to compromise his attacking philosophy but Albion were just too canny and the counter-attacking tactics Neil told his players to expect had their measure too comfortably.

    Salomon Rondon only touched the ball twice in the box in his 74 minutes on the pitch (right side of this graphic) compared to Norwich striker Dieumerci Mbokani's six (left side). But he scored the only goal of the game.

    He says Brunt was excellent at both ends of the pitch for West Brom. He forced two saves from John Ruddy, including one full-stretch stop, and was also willing to get back and help defensively

    Stoke Sentinel: "Oh dear! Mark Hughes's 100th anniversary party was a miserable anti-climax as Stoke were comfortably humbled in front of their own fans here at the Britannia this afternoon.

    Wales Online: Against Villa, of course, the Swans were not back to their best, oh no. The swagger, the ‘Swansalona way’ that has thrilled even neutrals in recent seasons and helped frustrate Chelsea and beat Manchester United earlier this campaign is still absent.  

    Mirror: There has been a desperate inertia - lifted only sporadically - about this place for a long time. A long time before Sherwood arrived with his smile, swagger and soundbites.

    Daily Mail: "Aston Villa and Swansea City may face an FA investigation after what appeared to be a heated tunnel bust-up involving Villa skipper Micah Richards and opposing defender Federico Fernandez at the end of their match at Villa Park."

    "There's two important moments in the second half Petr Cech makes a save and Romelu Lukaku heads against the crossbar. There are many positives but clearly on the other side is giving up a soft two-goal lead.

    "We're very concerned about Phil Jagielka. It's a knee injury - we don’t the extent of it, but that's the biggest negative today."

    Two headers in the space of under two minutes did serious harm to Everton.

    The first saw Arsenal again work the ball right, threatening the inexperience of Brendon Galloway at left-back for Everton. Mesut Ozil's delivery was sumptuous and Olivier Giroud stole a march on Phil Jagielka. Bingo.

    The second header is more straight forward as Santi Cazorla's dead ball delivery left Laurent Koscielny with little to do. Olivier Giroud's movement is worth a look. He creates space for Koscielny to attack.

    The Guardian: "Chelsea did not do their own job as well as champions should. Defensively it is they who have been weak and naive this season. There were suggestions before this match that they were improving on that front – two consecutive clean sheets served as evidence – but West Ham ran a serious stress test and Chelsea failed it." 

    Daily Mail: "Where once there was structure and order to Chelsea, now there is simply rank indiscipline.

    "Jose Mourinho lost more than the match on Saturday. Dignity was also sacrificed amidst a chaotic breakdown of order which saw six players booked, one sent off and Mourinho and his assistant Silvino Louro also dismissed."

    Mirror: "Slaven Bilic has lots of silky attacking options but the raw power of the England striker is still invaluable.

    "Last week he came on to wreak havoc as West Ham scored two late goals to win at Crystal Palace. Against a dogged Chelsea defence, his back-post header earned another three points."

    "And then we’ve got the sending off. Originally we played on – we thought the referee had played on. Maybe the assistant called it back, I’m not sure sure what’s happened there. 

    "We’ve not had the rub of the green but we’re not feeling sorry for ourselves. We have to work hard to turn this round.

    "We worked really hard at 10 men and had the majority of the play in the second half but still lost. The game was a summary of our season at the minute."

    West Ham 2-1 Chelsea

    West Ham striker Andy Carroll told BBC Sport: "We’ve got a great atmosphere at the training ground. It’s fantastic to be a part of. He’s a top manager – he analyses the opposition and then tells us how to beat them. 

    "We thought we could beat them today. It wasn’t about Chelsea, it was about us. We’ve had some great wins this season and hopefully we’ll carry on. The way we’re going, we’ve got a right shot at it [a high finish]. I don’t see why not."

    West Ham 2-1 Chelsea

    While Andy Carroll's header may have been a no-nonsense finish, his team did not just lump it forward - they pressured Chelsea's 10 men into submission before the decisive blow came.

    A John Terry header (26) cleared the first wave of attack but the Hammers came back for more and their big number nine put Aaron Cresswell's cross in the back of the net.

    Quote Message: "The story is gathering momentum week after week. Jose Mourinho's been sent off and will get the headlines again. It's continuously bringing Chelsea down. The club gave him a new contract in the summer and that would suggest they won't get rid of him. But it's always been a quick-fix at Chelsea if it's not working. Carlo Ancelotti won the double and got the sack."
  108. Sending off was key

    West Ham boss Slaven Bilic

    West Ham boss Slaven Bilic told BBC Sport: “We are delighted. We are playing good. It was important for us to do it against the champions and in front of our fans. It feels like a perfect day for us. 

    “On the disallowed goal, nobody can say Cesc Fabregas was onside and nobody can say he was off. It was very tight. It was a very tough decision for the referee. You have to freeze the picture and you’re still not sure. Chelsea had a point but if it was given, we would have had a point to complain.

    "The red card looked quite clear, the two bookings were bookings. It had a major impact on the game."

    Do you think he picks himself?

    Richard Thomas: I used to really like Mourinho but he's got this habit of self destruct usually after two or three seasons,at a club like he did at Madrid. Chelsea are becoming the most hated team and as champions even more so teams want to topple them they are being found out this season  

    Nathan Pendregaust: Form is temporary, class is permanent. Mourinho will come good again, maybe not at Chelsea though. Which would be a huge loss to the Premier League.  

  111. How close can you get?

    This is how close Chelsea got to an equaliser at Upton Park when they trailed 1-0 in the first half. At least 95% of the ball crossed the line when Kurt Zouma's headed goalwards but the 5% that didn't meant it did not count.

    West Ham cleared and broke forward, with Nemanja Matic picking up his first booking for fouling Cheikhou Kouyate. Nine minutes later, he was off.

  113. The first Hammer blow

    West Ham 2-1 Chelsea

    Here is that first West Ham goal in graphical form. Chelsea midfielder Ramires (7) was the only player to get a touch on Dimitri Payet's corner before it reached Mauro Zarate... but would it have made a difference if the Blues had put a man on that far post to stop Zarate's shot finding the bottom corner?

    I saw someone complain on that Gary Lineker Facebook stream that they had avoided the results today and were annoyed that he'd ruined that.
