  1. Can you actually get any closer?

    Tottenham 2-2 Arsenal

    Goal-line technology came to the rescue as Harry Kane stabbed a shot at goal. David Ospina stood behind his goalline to somehow keep the ball out... just.

  2. Coquelin's day to forget

    Tottenham 2-2 Arsenal

    Image caption: Francis Coquelin was sent off on 55 minutes for a second yellow card - and five minutes later, Spurs had responded with two quick goals.

    Aaron Ramsey

    Aaron Ramsey had a busy but somewhat sloppy day aside from his super flick for the opener.

    With 82 touches, he saw more ball than any player on the pitch but he completed just 60% of his passes. Only Kyle Walker (59%) - of all the outfield starters - was more loose with his distribution.

    Alex Johnson: I always wondered why searching that hashtag produced so many tweets of women showing off their makeup #youlearnsomethingneweveryday

  7. 'Just look at his face!'

    Right then. Ready for this? That theme tune...

    Here's a quick reminder of the running order: 

    • Tottenham v Arsenal
    • Watford v Leicester
    • Everton v West Ham
    • Newcastle v Bournemouth
    • Manchester City v Aston Villa
    • Southampton v Sunderland
    • Swansea v Norwich
    • Chelsea v Stoke
  8. Leicester's title motivation?

    That reference to Gary Lineker's underwear by the way - in case you didn't get it - is all about his promising to present Match of the Day in just his pants if Leicester win the league...

    For a footballer of the 1980s (and 90s) this is probably less daunting than it sounds.

    That looks quite a lot like a Portuguese-style custard tart?

    One more quick thing to mention before normal service resumes. 

    For those of you not in the know about this sort of thing, the hashtag #motd is a very different beast when there's no Match of the Day on. 

    Most of the week it's all about make up - shimmery eyes with Marc Jacobs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang lipstick, for example.

    Other Kiss Kiss Bang Bang lipsticks are available.Marc Jacobs is certainly a bit highbrow for this live text.

  11. And there's more...


    We'll also be regaling you with analysis, reaction and all the stats you need to know about each of Saturday's games in the English top flight.

    So stay tuned, crack open a bottle of sherry if you should so wish, and enjoy.

    Before we get started let's just have a quick reminder of the state of play then. 

    This right here is the place for you to share your thoughts, views and opinions on the weekend's Premier League football so far.

    Alternatively, post a comment over on the Match of the Day Facebook page and we'll publish the best ones here. 

  13. Good evening

    Good evening everyone, and welcome to Match of the Day Social. 

    And it really is a good evening if you're a Leicester fan - with Foxes extended their  lead at the top of the Premier League table to five points today.

    Their win away to Watford doesn't make top of the billing tonight though...
