    And that is that! After 16 hours of live coverage we here at BBC Football bid you goodnight. See you again in a few hours...

  2. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    Ian Wright

    Former Arsenal striker on MOTD

    "After one shot on target, does Louis van Gaal not understand the expectations of the club?"

  3. 'Reid fantastic'

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    Danny Murphy

    Ex-Liverpool midfielder on MOTD

    "Winston Reid was absolutely fantastic. He was the leader for West Ham at the back. His positonal play was excellent and he nearly scored."

  4. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    Manchester United could have had two red cards in that game. What do you think?

  5. Boring? Or efficient?

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

  6. Referee misses red card?

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    Bastian Schweinsteiger and Winston Reid

    Should Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger seen a red card late in the first half?

    The German raised his arm towards Winston Reid, which saw the West Ham man hit the deck.

    Referee Mark Clattenburg brought the men together and could easily have shown the red card, but found a talking to was sufficient punishment.

  7. Man of the match - Winston Reid

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    Winston Reid

    BBC Sport's Shamoon Hafez named West Ham defender Winston Reid as his man of the match.

    A rock at the centre of the West Ham defence, Reid would not have deserved to be on the losing side. He put his body on the line when required and stepped out from the back at the right times to frustrate Manchester United.  

  8. What the papers said

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    The Telegraph: Manchester United fans located the end of their tether after 70 minutes of their goalless draw with West Ham.

    “Attack, attack, attack,” was the rallying cry of the Stretford End. It has beenheard plenty of times in the Louis Van Gaal era, but this carried a venom as much as an instruction. Boos had preceded it.

    The Guardian: Wayne Rooney had an alibi for this latest Manchester United disappointment. If the home side’s play was slow and ineffective, lacking conviction in front of goal, it clearly could not be the injured captain’s fault. This could have been the day when United overtook their neighbours in the top four, instead it was another letdown.

    The Independent: The noises coming out of the Old Trafford boardroom before kick-off were of support for Louis van Gaal despite the less than convincing performances from his team but the only noise reverberating around Old Trafford at the final whistle was booing after this latest disappointment.

  9. 'Anything but boring!'

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: “It could have been three points. It was anything but a boring game. It could have ended 4-4, 3-3, 2-2 or whatever. At half-time we definitely deserved to be at least one goal in front and we had a clear cut chance with Mauro Zarate in the second half and you have to use those chances. 

    "But we showed great team spirit and defending – not only the back four but the whole team. We were resillient. We deserved to get something out of the game."

  10. Manager reaction

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "The most important thing is you dominant, create and you finish. Football is scoring goals. The first two basic aspects of football we have done. When you don't finish from a metre in front of an empty goal you can say nothing anymore."  

  11. Struggling up top, strong at the back

    Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

    Chris Smalling

    They may have problems in front of goal, but at the back it's a different story. Louis van Gaal's side have conceded just once at home all season.

    Manchester United were without skipper Wayne Rooney so Anthony Martial (9) was the furthest man forward, but was he left isolated? The Frenchman had 46 touches, the fewest of any home outfield player who played the full game.

  17. 'Lack of confidence'

    Southampton 1-1 Aston Villa

    Danny Murphy

    Ex-Liverpool midfielder on MOTD

    "Villa's failure to hold on to a lead shows a lack of confidence in themselves. Southampton showed a really good reaction and after they were beaten 6-1 by Liverpool and I think Ronald Koeman will be pleased with that."

  19. What the papers said

    Southampton 1-1 Aston Villa

    Daily Express: Rock-bottom Aston Villa somehow survived a barrage from Saints to secure only their second Premier League point since August.

    The Guardian: "Aston Villa will have a good chance of clambering off the bottom of the Premier League table if all opponents give them the sort of hand up that Southampton offered here. 

    Ronald Koeman’s team shared the points by passing up an abundance of opportunities before allowing Joleon Lescott to put Villa into an improbable lead."

    Daily Mirror: "It wasn't always pretty and Southampton could and should have scored half a dozen goals in the first half alone. 

    "But Villa also made their own luck by defending like tigers, with one Alan Hutton block in the second half summing up their determination."

  20. 'It's about scoring goals!'

    Southampton 1-1 Aston Villa

    Southampton manager Ronald Koeman: "Normally you don't sign up for one point at home, but it's a point. We made it difficult for ourselves. We had three or four big chances to score and then we concede.

    "Straight after half-time we had some difficulties but they showed great character to come back and draw the game. 

    "We deserved more but OK, it's about scoring goals and creating chances. That was not the the case today.

    "Last year we were 4-0 up against Villa [when Saints won 6-1] and we didn't start as well as today. But we didn't score and that is the detail in football. For the first time in maybe two seasons we conceded such a soft goal from a corner."

  21. MAN OF THE MATCH

    Southampton 1-1 Aston Villa

    BBC Sport's Mandeep Sanghera named Joleon Lescott as his man of the match after he scored his first goal for Aston Villa to earn them a much-needed point.

    Lescott was part of a defence that was overun early on but they regrouped and he also made a vital headed interception in the second half.

    Joleon Lescott
  22. Manager reaction

    Southampton 1-1 Aston Villa

    Aston Villa manager Remi Garde: "It is a big point. We have suffered a lot, Southampton created many chances and we were under pressure for long periods. But we showed a very good spirit. I'm happy about that.

    "Southampton are a very strong side and we expected to be questioned and the answers we gave were very good.

    "Sometimes you have to fight hard for 15-20 minutes at the start of a game. We were lucky but we did not give up.

    "I prefer to have this solidarity in every game than have much more talent. Solidarity is the key when you are fighting relegation. If we show this spirit again we will get more points.

    "The talent at Aston Villa is not the same as at Manchester City or Arsenal but they still lose games."

    Aston Villa manager Remi Garde
  23. Dominant Southampton

    Southampton 1-1 Aston Villa

    Southampton dominated the game and had more than 60% possession against Villa.

    The home side also made 544 passes against a Villa side who made 321, had 23 shots compared to Villa's nine, delivered 10 corners in contrast to four for the visitors and put in 45 crosses as opposed 10 from the Midlands outfit.

  24. Familiar theme for Villa

    Aston Villa battled hard to hold on to their lead at Southampton but failed to do so and not being able to maintain their advantage this season is a familiar theme for the Midlands club.

    Aston Villa boss makes two enforced changes at the back, with Jores Okore and Joleon Lescott replacing the injured Micah Richards and suspended Ciaran Clark. Leandro Bacuna also comes in for Kieran Richardson at left-back while Rudy Gestede replaces Carles Gil.

We were aggressive, created chances and had crosses and a clear penalty that the referee did not see. That is the game.

    "In the moment when our opponent were thinking just about defending a clean sheet they cross the halfway line for the first time and scored. If it was offside it is another episode that goes against us, but I did not see it."

    "We defended so well, put our bodies on the line and didn't succumb to the pressure. We hung in there and that was crucial. We've talked all season about trying to score more goals from corner and free kicks and it happened today.

    Stoke employed a subtle change of shape this afternoon as Marko Arnautovic (10), Bojan (27) and Xherdan Shaqiri (22) pushed high up the pitch in a front three.

    This graphic shows their average positions over the course of the match. City had no answer.

    Love this stat. You can impress your mates with this one later. Well, depends on your mates.

    Stoke have not conceded a Premier League goal this season when Ryan Shawcross has been on the pitch.

    And before you smart Alecs get in touch, Shawcross had been sent off before Stoke conceded against Sunderland last week.

    Also, if you want an idea of how important Vincent Kompany is to Man City, try this on for size: His side have conceded just once with him on the pitch this term and let in 15 without him.

    In fact, he got down low to deny Kevin de Bruyne just moments before Stoke went up the other end and scored their second.

  111. Silva back for Man City

    No Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure or Vincent Kompany for Manchester City. But keeper Joe Hart is back from injury and David Silva makes his first start since early October, so we should get bags of creativity...

  112. Where's Walters?

    Stoke XI

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes opted to drop Jon Walters to the bench after last week's 2-0 loss at Sunderland, with Charlie Adam also out of the starting line-up.

    That means Ibrahim Afellay comes into a rejigged attack - surely it won't make that much difference... will it?
