Premier League LIVE

    Hello and welcome to live coverage of today's Premier League action. 

    We have five 3pm games and then a top of the table clash between Leicester City and Manchester United at 5.30pm. It still feels strange to say that, doesn't it?

    Stay tuned for every goal from around the grounds.

    Higginbotham: Pace and patience have taken Leicester to the pinnacle

    The IndependentIt’s an achievement which has defied all our expectations and I suppose there are some who will try to say it’s a fluke and can’t last. Some people never learn about football! Top of the league after 13 games by accident?!

    All you need to know for Manchester United vs Leicester City

    The IndependentIt’s a big game for… Wayne Rooney: The striker was often bypassed once again as United failed to break down a resilient PSV Eindhoven at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. In his role as United’s captain, it is imperative that he galvanises his team as they take on a Leicester side that are currently flying high. Weird stat… 1: Leicester had only mustered one goal in the eight Premier League fixtures between the two sides before the Foxes recorded a remarkable 5-3 victory last season. Remember when…

    11/28/2015 3:08:52 PM
    GOAL! Man City 1 Southampton 0 - Kevin De Bruyne
    Terrible error from Maya Yoshida, caught on the ball and Raheem Sterling is able to cross to De Bruyne for a tap in. 
    11/28/2015 3:09:53 PM
    GOAL! Crystal Palace 0 Newcastle 1 - Papiss Cisse
    Janmaat crosses to Cisse who the Palace defence think is offside. He isn't and heads the ball home to give Newcastle a shock lead.
    11/28/2015 3:10:48 PM

    11/28/2015 3:12:32 PM
    GOAL! Crystal Palace 1 Newcastle 1 - James McArthur
    McArthur shoots from 20 yards and the ball takes a huge deflection off Paul Dummett's back and flies into theca net. Quick response from Palace.
    11/28/2015 3:15:28 PM
    GOAL! Crystal Palace 2 Newcastle 1 - Yannick Bolasie
    Newcastle can't cope and Palace are lining up to put the ball in the net. Wickham crosses, Zaha misses his kick, but Bolasie is on hand to bury the shot. Quick comeback from Pardiola and the boys.
    11/28/2015 3:18:42 PM
    GOAL! Aston Villa 0 Watford 1 - Odion Ighalo
    Who else? Amateur stuff from Villa who fail to clear their lines on several attempts and goal fiend Ighalo eventually gets the ball in the net.
    11/28/2015 3:19:12 PM
    GOAL! Man City 2 Southampton 0 - Fabian Delph
    City, perhaps wrongly have a penalty appeal turned down. It doesn't matter though because Delph shoots from outside the area, the ball taking a slight deflection on the way in.
    11/28/2015 3:23:26 PM

    Newcastle's joy was short-lived 

    11/28/2015 3:26:04 PM

    11/28/2015 3:36:53 PM
    GOAL! Bournemouth 0 Everton 2 - Romelu Lukaku

    11/28/2015 3:37:48 PM

    11/28/2015 3:38:17 PM
    GOAL! Aston Villa 1 Watford 1 - Micah Richards

    11/28/2015 3:41:35 PM
    GOAL! Crystal Palace 3 Newcastle 1 - Wilfried Zaha
    Oh dear. Newcastle are miserable. A Zaha mishit volley smashes into the ground, loops over a defender and into the goal. This could get embarrassing.

    11/28/2015 4:04:29 PM
    GOAL! Crystal Palace 4 Newcastle 1 - Yannick Bolasie
    Steve McClaren is surely on the way out... Minutes into the second half and Bolasie has his second and Palace's fourth.
    11/28/2015 4:05:10 PM
    RED CARD! Sunderland 0 Stoke 0 - Ryan Shawcross
    Something has happened at the Stadium of Light! Second yellow for Shawcross, perhaps harshly, and Stoke are down to ten men.
    11/28/2015 4:09:03 PM

    11/28/2015 4:09:40 PM
    GOAL! Man City 2 Southampton 1 - Shane Long
