  1. Thank you and good night

    That is all for now. Be sure to come back to this very site tomorrow for a top-four extravaganza, starting with Arsenal v Leicester and followed by Man City v Tottenham (with a bit of Aston Villa v Liverpool in the middle). The live text commentary action kicks off at 10:00 GMT.

    Bye.

  2. Premier League table

    At the bottom, Newcastle remain in the bottom three but are now just a point above north-east rivals Sunderland and have a much worse goal difference. Norwich gain a point on Swansea and Bournemouth, but they will be lamenting a chance lost to gain further ground...

  3. Premier League table

    No change in the top four, who all play tomorrow. But Southampton have gained ground on fifth-placed Manchester United. The gap between the two now is just a point...

  4. Man of the match - James Ward-Prowse

    Swansea 0-1 Southampton

    James Ward-Prowse

    Southampton's James Ward-Prowse provided the right-wing cross for Shane Long's winner and was excellent in midfield throughout, covering a match-high 12.39km at an average speed of 7.84km/h - only late substitute Charlie Austin could better that.  

  5. 100 not out for Koeman

    Swansea 0-1 Southampton

    Today's win for Southampton also brought up a significant milestone for their boss Ronaldo Koeman. He is now 100 not out after bringing up a century of Premier League points as Saints manager.

    Raise your bat Ronald, well done son.  

  6. The gaffer is pleased

  7. Manager reaction - Francesco Guidolin

    Swansea coach Francesco Guidolin

    Swansea coach Francesco Guidolin told MOTD: "Southampton are a strong team in a good period. They played well, with enthusiasm and calm. It's difficult to score a goal against them at the moment. We had a few situations but we deserved only one point today."

    Asked about Swansea's late penalty appeal for Yoshida's challenge on Paloschi, he said: "I don't like speaking about the referee because it's a difficult job."

  8. Manager reaction - Ronald Koeman

    Southampton boss Ronald Koeman

    Southampton boss Ronald Koeman told MOTD: "For sure, we are totally confident in our defence and we know we have the players who can create chances. It was a fantastic performance.

    "It was a well deserved three points. We have a great run at the moment. It's a pity we have a break. But it looks like a great season again for us."

  9. You shall not pass!

    Swansea 0-1 Southampton

    Six games back since injury, six clean sheets. Fraser Forster is an absolute brick wall!

  11. Left wing or right?

  12. Forster has the force

    The last time Fraser Forster conceded a goal was last March against Chelsea, just before he suffered a serious knee injury...

  15. H-Yowge win!

    Everton 0-1 West Brom

  16. Manager reaction

    Everton 0-1 West Brom

    West Brom boss Tony Pulis: "Everton are a top four or five team. The depth of quality within the club is fantastic, they had a great performance to beat Stoke last week and to come here and put in that performance is fantastic.

    "We played Everton at the beginning of the season and we were 2-0 up and they scored three late goals. We were distraught, so it is nice to come here and get one back on them."

  17. Something for the weekend

    Everton 0-1 West Brom

  18. Manager reaction

    Everton 0-1 West Brom

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez: "We didn't do anything wrong. Their one shot on target ends up in the back of the net.

    "The effort and the way that we play the game I couldn't fault. It is one of those moments in football sometimes that are difficult to explain."

    "We have been very strong away from home and the points we have achieved is outstanding but we should base our success on making Goodison Park a fortress."

  19. Misfiring Toffees

    Everton 0-1 West Brom

    Everton had 34 shots against West Brom without scoring. Six were on target (left), 13 were off target (middle) and 15 were blocked.
