  • One of the first two games today is Newcastle v Sunderland...
    Row K, seat 15, the epicentre of St James’ Park. Mike Ashley’s seat, in the Newcastle United directors’ box. Not cheap. Current estimate, around £250m. He plans to sit in it today, for the 150th Tyne-Wear derby. The eyes of Tyneside bore into this seat. Say what you like about Ashley – and just short of seven years into his reign he continues to stir the very soul of the club’s supporters – but he has guts.

  • Things look a bit calmer at Upton Park...

    2/1/2014 12:40:37 PM
  • We are about to kick off at Upton Park or The Boleyn Ground for all you pedants. Quite why this is the televised game and not Newcastle v Sunderland remains a mystery for the ages but never fear we will bring you all the news from both games as it happens. 
    2/1/2014 12:46:51 PM
  • WE'RE OFF!

  • West Ham 0 Swansea 0: Apart from an early West Ham corner it has been all quiet so far in sunny east London.
    2/1/2014 12:54:23 PM
  • Newcastle 0 Sunderland 0: Meanwhile Sunderland have squandered a good early chance as new loan signing heads an Adam Johnson free kick over the bar from six yards out.
    2/1/2014 12:56:10 PM
  • Newcastle 0 Sunderland 0: First booking of the game at St James Park, John O'Shea gets pinged for handball.
    2/1/2014 1:03:26 PM
  • West Ham 0 Swansea 0: Not much to report in this game so far, Swansea looking like they could pose most of a threat on the counter.
    2/1/2014 1:05:56 PM
  • GOAL! Newcastle 0 Sunderland 1 - Fabio Borinin (pen)
    Vernon Anita brings down Phil Bardsley in the box and Borini makes no mistake from the spot, smashing home his penalty. Game on.
    2/1/2014 1:10:54 PM
  • GOAL! Newcastle 0 Sunderland 2 - Adam Johnson
    Oh dear Newcastle... Sunderland go two up and the in form Johnson has his sixth goal in four matches. Lonng way back for the Magpies from here.
    2/1/2014 1:12:02 PM
  • GOAL! West Ham 1 Swansea 0 - Kevin Nolan
    There are goals flying in everywhere! Andy Carroll leaps high to knock down a great header for Nolan who runs into the box to collect the ball before lashing it home. Great link up from the pair. 
    2/1/2014 1:15:11 PM
  • West Ham 1 Swansea 0: Andy Carroll is beasting about at Upton Park and giving Swansea all sorts of problems. But suddenly Wilfried Bony is through on goal, Tomkins makes a last ditch tackle and just gets the ball as Bony tumbles to the ground - no penalty says Howard Webb (and he's right)
    2/1/2014 1:23:45 PM
  • The Independent's Jack Pitt-Brooke with a controversial statement...

    2/1/2014 1:31:43 PM

  • Sunderland celebrate their opening goal 

    2/1/2014 1:32:32 PM
  • GOAL! West Ham 2 Swansea 0 - Kevin Nolan
    They've done it again! What are Swansea doing? Corner to West Ham finds a leaping Carroll at the back post and he nods it down to his chum Nolan who heads the ball into the opposite corner of the net. West Ham are cruising.
    2/1/2014 1:33:32 PM
    West Ham 2 Swansea 0 - It's been all about Carroll and Nolan in the first half.

    Newcastle 0 Sunderland 2 - Alan Pardew's side are in trouble. Watch out police horses of the north east.

    2/1/2014 1:52:02 PM
  • Newcastle 0 Sunderland 2: Fans of siblings in the same team will be disappointed as Sammy Ameobi has been hauled off by Alan Pardew at half time. Fans of new signings at clubs will be delighted as Luuk de Jong has been brought on for his Newcastle debut. Can the Dutchman turn things around?
    2/1/2014 1:57:54 PM
  • West Ham 2 Swansea 0: Swansea are building some pressure now but West Ham are holding firm. Could be an exciting half this...
    2/1/2014 2:00:17 PM
  • RED CARD! Andy Carroll
    Well, well, well... So much for Carroll's good day... This game just got very interesting. Chico Flores and Carroll get tangled and a swinging arm from the striker catches Flores who goes down softly. Howard Webb pulls out the red card.
    2/1/2014 2:02:03 PM
  • Newcastle 0 Sunderland 2: Shola Ameobi misses a close range chance to grab a goal back for Newcastle but then Adam Johnson strikes back for Sunderland, hitting the post. He really is in form at the moment.
    2/1/2014 2:13:08 PM
  • West Ham 2 Swansea 0: David N'gog is on everyone! Swansea still can't find a way through...

  • The Independent's Ed Aarons at Craven Cottage...

    2/1/2014 3:05:15 PM
  • GOAL! Cardiff 0 Norwich 1 - Robert Snodgrass
    Oh dear Cardiff, not a great start. Martin Olsson is allowed to get behind the Cardiff defence and squares it to Snodgrass who slots home unmarked. Too easy.
    2/1/2014 3:05:54 PM
  • GOAL! Hull 1 Tottenham 0 - Shane Long
    Looks like Hull did the right thing investing in some new strikers, Jelavic combines well with Long who fires a left footed shot past the keeper. Tottenham concede yet another goal after their pasting by Man City earlier in the week.
    2/1/2014 3:13:51 PM

  • Fulham parade their new signings before kick off

    2/1/2014 3:33:56 PM
  • GOAL! Everton 0 Aston Villa 1 - Leandro Bacuna
    As if by magic, another goal! Bacuna seizes a loose ball, plays a one-two with Benteke, and slots in through Howard's legs. 
    2/1/2014 3:34:57 PM
  • GOAL! Stoke 1 Man United 0 - Charlie Adam
    David Moyes doesn't have much luck these days... Adam thumps a free kick from 40 yards out and it takes a huge deflection off Carrick and wrong-foots De Gea. Against the run of play but Stoke won't care.
