  • GOAL! Swansea 2 Manchester 3: This game has been finished as a contest for some time, but somehow Wilfried Bony has set up a nervous final two minutes of stoppage time for Manchester City. The Ivorian striker has been extremely lively this afternoon and bagged a second after deceiving Fernandinho and firing low away from Hart and into the corner from 25 yards out.

  • Why does it always rain on him?

    1/1/2014 2:56:11 PM
  • Right. Eight games in the Premier League about to begin. Many of them hugely important to the table. One of them between Newcastle and West Brom. You get the impression it's going to be a busy one.

    Here we go...
    1/1/2014 3:01:14 PM
  • Southampton 0 Chelsea 0: The Saints were already a goal up by this point when the sides met in the reverse fixture just over four weeks ago, and Chelsea could have found themselves in the lead today. Fernando Torres has twice escaped away from the home defence but failed to find either Eden Hazard or the net at the vital moment.
    1/1/2014 3:03:47 PM
  • GOAL! Fulham 0 West Ham 1: A huge goal at Craven Cottage! It's typically route one from Big Sam's men, but it's again proved effective. Jaaskelainen's long punt forward was collected by Mohamed Diamé in the area, four Fulham defenders allowed him time to turn and steer the ball past David Stockdale.
    1/1/2014 3:06:58 PM
  • Sunderland 0 Aston Villa 0: Gus Poyet has fielded a modern day version of Hoddle and Waddle in his Sunderland team today with Ki and Ji lining up for the Mackems. The latter has just had an opportunity to open the scoring but sliced wide at the far post having been picked out by Giacchierini.
    1/1/2014 3:13:56 PM
  • GOAL! Sunderland 0 Aston Villa 1: Ki and Ji can't stop Aston Villa taking the lead! Lee Cattermole was at fault, making a huge mistake that Gabby Agbonlahor seized upon. The Aston Villa forward kept his cool to round Mannone and slot into the empty net.
    1/1/2014 3:15:34 PM
  • Liverpool 0 Hull 0: Luis Suarez thought he had netted his 20th Premier League goal of the season, but the Uruguayan had fallen foul to the linesman's offside flag. The striker had smartly headed in from Phillipe Coutinho's free-kick but had strayed slightly beyond the last defender and the game remains goalless.
    1/1/2014 3:20:53 PM
  • Fulham's defensive wall crumbles yet again.

    1/1/2014 3:24:32 PM
  • Arsenal 0 Cardiff 0: The Gunners didn't register a single shot on target in the first half against Cardiff as the Bluebirds held firm, and you get the impression that the visitors are attempting to hold on to what they've got. Take it to the corner flag! 

    1/1/2014 4:31:20 PM
  • GOAL! Southampton 0 Chelsea 2: That should be another victory in the bag for Jose Mourinho's men! The good side to Oscar's game is on view as he toys with the Southampton defence, eventually knocking the ball square to Willian on the edge of the area. With minimal backlift, the Brazilian makes space for himself and hammers an effort low past Davis into the right-hand corner.
    1/1/2014 4:31:31 PM
  • Liverpool's Oussama Assaidi celebrates scores the opening goal for Stoke against Everton.

    1/1/2014 4:38:08 PM
  • GOAL! Southampton 0 Chelsea 3: Oscar has put the seal on an impressive Chelsea performance this afternoon. The Brazilian raced on to a ball lofted over the Southampton defence and effortlessly slotted past Kelvin Davis.
    1/1/2014 4:41:46 PM
  • RED CARD! Crystal Palace 1 Norwich 1: Leroy Fer is the latest man to be given his marching orders this afternoon. The Dutchman was booked in the first half for his part in the move that led to Crystal Palace's penalty and he's picked up a second yellow card for another late tackle on Jerdinak. The Canaries have ten minutes to hold on.
    1/1/2014 4:42:16 PM
  • PENALTY! GOAL! West Brom 1 Newcastle 0: West Brom have a man advantage and now they have a goal advantage because Saido Berahino has broken the deadlock from the penalty spot after Matej Vydra was dragged down by Tim Krul.
