May have extended Van Gaals lifeline briefly but yet another blank in front of goal. Were United good or Chelsea poor? #bbcfootball

Is there a manager out there in the mould of Sir Alex who can get Utd playing to the same level & strike fear in them? #MUFC #bbcfootball

Best I've seen #MUFC play all season - a good striker & we won today, LVG lost the league in July letting RVP & Hernandez go #bbcfootball

Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth

9 - Mesut Ozil created nine goalscoring chances vs Bournemouth, the most by a player in a single Premier League game this season. Conductor.

Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth

Arsenal players are ITK (in the know) about each other's records...

Back to winning ways with a clean sheet! Also congrats to @petrcech on your 170 record clean sheets!! #COYG

Draw isnt a fair result. @ChelseaFC were awful and never deserved even a point. And this coming from a CFC fan. #SSNHQ #bbcfootball #MANCHE

People are saying Man U were playing for Van Gaal tonight. Were they trying to earn him the record for 0-0 draws? #bbcfootball

Clean sheet for #MUFC with the return of Schneiderlin & Schweinsteiger in midfield. Coincidence? #bbcfootball

Match of the Day

18 goals in the eight games from today's Premier League games. You've got a bonus Match of the Day to look forward to this evening on BBC One at 22:30 GMT.

Watch out for Xherdan Shaqiri's second goal against Everton, it was an absolute pearler.


West Ham 2-1 Southampton

The Hammers come from a goal behind to beat Southampton at Upton Park and end a run of five straight draws.

Andy carroll

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

8 - Man Utd have now gone eight games without victory in all competitions, their worst run since January 1990 (also eight games). Slump.


Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Boos ring around Old Trafford and lowly Chelsea hold Manchester United to another goalless draw.

Eight games without victory for the Red Devils.

wayne Rooney

Record breaker

Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth

Petr Cech breaks the record for the most clean sheets in Premier League history with 170 162 - #CFC 8 - #Arsenal

Petr Cech breaks the record for the most clean sheets in Premier League history with 170 162 - #CFC 8 - #Arsenal


Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth

Petr Cech keeps a clean sheet for Arsenal to take his tally in the Premier League to 170, that's a new record.

More significantly, the Gunners go top of the table.

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Wayne Rooney booked for an ugly tackle on Oscar, stamping on the Brazilian's shin. That's terrible from the Manchester United and England captain, it should have been a different colour.

West Ham 2-1 Southampton

Michail Antonio runs clear from a corner in his own area and ends up at the opposite end.

Looking to score a second, he shoots but he skies it high into the London sky.

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Simon Stone

BBC Sport

It was after an eighth game without a win in 1989-90 that United went to Forest in the FA Cup third round and changed the course of history.

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

"United, United, United" is the chant from the Manchester United fans. Two minutes left to play and some home fans are walking out of the stadium. Unbelievable.

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

#CFC supporters sing "attack, attack attack" #MUFC supporters jeer Still 0-0 at Old Trafford

#CFC supporters sing "attack, attack attack" #MUFC supporters jeer Still 0-0 at Old Trafford

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Manchester United only have themselves to blame if they don't win this game. Cameron Borthwick-Jackson's inch perfect cross to the back post is met on the volley by Wayne Rooney, but the Red Devils captain can't keep his effort on target and the ball ends up in the Stretford End.

Three minutes to play.

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Into the last five minutes at Old Trafford, is this the final few minutes of Louis van Gaal's career? A 0-0 draw would be an apt way to go out if it is.

Wayne Rooney

Carroll's hair

West Ham 2-1 Southampton

Andy Carroll's hairstyle is truly remarkable but it didn't stop him nodding one home to give West Ham the lead.

Championship full-time

Middlesbrough 1-0 Sheff Wed

All over in the late Championship game as Cristhian Stuani’s goal after just 44 seconds seals victory for Middlesbrough, who go back to the top of the Championship.


Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth

This time, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's shot comes off a defenders and hits the post. 

Come on Arsenal, you need to put these away and up the goal difference column.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth

At the Emirates, Olivier Giroud has a chance to put the game firmly to bed, but shoots wide from the edge of the box.

8 minutes to play.

GOAL - West Ham 2-1 Southampton

Andy Carroll (79 mins)

West Ham turn the game around.

Michail Antonio somehow manages to hit the crossbar with a header from Enner Valencia's cross to the back post, but Andy Carroll is the right man in the right place to nod in West Ham's second.

Upton Park erupts.

Andy Carroll

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

Not one of Wayne Rooney's finest moments. He runs on to Juan Mata's lovely dinked ball forward, but ends up making a hash of it with an air shot.

He was flagged offside, but looking at the replay, Rooney was definitely on.

15 minutes remaining, can either side find a winner?

West Ham 1-1 Southampton

We equalised! Well done Michail Antonio, your first goal, congratulations

One to remember.

GOAL - West 1-1 Southampton

Michail Antonio (69 mins)

This is jammier than my toast on a morning.

West Ham winger Michail Antonio with a mazy run into the box before losing control and falling over.

However, as a Southampton man tries to clear the ball, it hits Antonio on the head, and loops over Maarten Stekelenburg's head and into the net.

This will be on next year's bloopers DVD.

Michail Antonio

Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth

Theo Walcott in to make it three??


The Englishman drags his effort wide from the right edge of the box.

Arsenal still going top of the pile though.

Coming up

Match of the Day

It's Monday. You know what that means: Match Of The Day!

Don't forget, you can watch all the goals from today on a special Bank Holiday offering of Match of the Day on BBC One from 22:30 GMT.

There's been some crackers today, so definitely worth a watch.

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

How this game is still 0-0 I do not know.

Nemanja Matic strides forward from midfield, with the freedom of Old Trafford in front home him, but lashes way over the crossbar when through on goal.

Awful effort and the home fans cannot believe they got away with that one.

GOAL - Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth

Mesut Ozil (62 mins)

Provider turns goalscorer.

German midfielder Mesut Ozil sidefoots home Olivier Giroud's flicked pass and Bournemouth now have a mountain to climb.

Mesut Ozil

West Ham 0-1 Southampton

At Upton Park, Shane Long - who scored two against Arsenal on Boxing Day - is looking to get on the end of a through ball but it taken out by West Ham defender James Collins.

That shoulder charge would have been flagged up in rugby league, but not here.


Arsenal 1-0 Bournemouth

Shouts for a penalty at the Emirates Stadium. Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling tumbles in the box under a challenge from Gabriel, but Roger East is unmoved but to the visiting player's anguish.

Two goalkeeping giants

Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

These 2 sides may be ordinary, but these 2 keepers are extraordinary!


Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

This is an unbelievable save from Thibaut Courtois.

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial causes problems with his pace once again, cracking a cross from the left and it looks for all the world that Ander Herrera is popping the ball into the net, but the Belgian goalkeeper springs across his goal to claw the ball away.

David De Gea has kept his side in the game but so has Courtois for Chelsea.

Arsenal 1-0 Bournemouth

Bournemouth were decent in the first half but fell a goal behind, they're looking to get back into this game but will have to find their way past Petr Cech, who could set a new Premier League record of 170 clean sheets if he keeps a shutout this evening.
