Brendan Rodgers is now within touching distance of the title - and Raheem Sterling

  • Norwich 1 Liverpool 3: Neil Adams' side are still fighting for their lives here, and have gone close on a couple of occasions to pulling another goal back. First, Nathan Redmond's long range drive took a wicked deflection off Skrtel but veered the wrong side of the far post with Mignolet beaten, and, then, from the resulting corner, Russell Martin headed inches over the crossbar from six yards out.

  • GOAL! Norwich 2 Liverpool 3: There is terrible, vacuous music pumping out over the tanoy, and that can only mean one thing, Norwich have scored and they're back in this game! Redmond, Howson and Martin Olsson worked their way down the left flank, and when the latter sent a cross into the area, there was the arriving Robert Snodgrass to direct a fine header into the top right-hand corner of Mignolet's net. Game on with 13 minutes remaining!

    Snodgrass nods the Canaries back into contention.

  • Norwich 2: Liverpool 3: The bad news for Liverpool is that Norwich smell blood, and have sent on two attackers as they chase an unlikely equaliser. The good news for Liverpool is one of those is the much-maligned Ricky van Wolfswinkel; the other is youngster Josh Murphy.

  • Norwich 2 Liverpool 3: Oh, Ricky van Wolfswinkel! The words of internet trolls (waves) everywhere could have been stuffed back down their throats there. In a carbon copy of Norwich's second goal, the Dutch striker got up highest to a cross from the left, but his downward header from eight yards out was straight at the grateful Mignolet. This will be a nervous final spell for Liverpool.

  • Norwich 2 Liverpool 3: Liverpool need to keep hold of the ball, but they're not doing the best of jobs so their travelling support decide to help them out by not giving it back when it sails in to the stand for a throw. They can't do that for all four minutes of stoppage time, however, so it's down to their players. They rarely let them down these days though.

  • Norwich 2 Liverpool 3: Seconds remain and Norwich win a free-kick just inside the Liverpool half. Turner is up for it, Martin is up for it, even John Ruddy is up for it! Can Liverpool hold firm at the death? Yes, they can!

  • It's straight to the KC Stadium for an FA Cup final dress rehearsal between Hull City and Arsenal. It begins at that traditional kick-off time of five past two.

  • Here's a reminder of how the Hull and Arsenal teams look this afternoon. Steve Bruce makes one change to the Hull side that last fared in Premier League competition with Tom Huddlestone replacing Maynor Figueroa, while Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic are back after being ineligible for the FA Cup semi-final. Arsenal, meanwhile, bring in three new faces after their midweek victory against West Ham with Nacho Monreal, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey starting ahead of Thomas Vermaelen, Kim Kallstrom and Tomas Rosicky.

    Hull: Harper, Elmohamady, Davies, Chester, Rosenior, Huddlestone, Livermore, Meyler, Boyd, Jelavic, Long

    Subs: Jakupovic, Figueroa, Bruce, Koren, Fryatt, Sagbo, Quinn

    Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski, Giroud

    Subs: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Flamini, Kallstrom, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Rosicky, Sanogo

    Referee: Jonathan Moss

  • Hull 0 Arsenal 0: After a wonderfully observed minute's silence in tribute to Hull legend Andy Davidson, who made nearly 600 appearances for the club in the 1950s, Arsenal get this afternoon's game going. The Gunners are soon on the back foot, however, and they needed safe hands from Wojciech Szczesny to deny the lurking Curtis Davies at an early corner.

    It's an intriguing afternoon for the home supporters, who would do doubt be delighted by three points against one of the Premier League's top dogs. However, a victory for the visitors will take them nearer to that fourth-placed finish that would guarantee the Tigers a place in Europe next season, regardless of what happens at Wembley in May.

  • Hull 0 Arsenal 0: Of course it's debatable whether a club deserve a shot in Europe if they can't keep their advertising hoardings under control. In bizarre circumstances, the game is held up for a couple of minutes after high winds blow a selection of boards across the pitch that the players are required to clear. The Premier League takes a dim view of such product placement and the likes of Cash Converters, 188Bet and Henry Afrika's of Scunthorpe may soon be getting a slap on the wrist.

  • Hull 0 Arsenal 0: The pitch has been tidied, the game is back underway and the visitors have had a shout for a penalty - and they may have actually got it if they had, y'know, shouted. Mesut Ozil, back in the Arsenal side after missing seven games with a hamstring injury, dances into the box and is clearly tripped by Ahmed Elmohamady as he tries to cut inside, but there's minimal appeal from the visitors and the hosts receive a let-off.
    4/20/2014 1:21:30 PM
  • Hull 0 Arsenal 0: The tackles have been flying in these past few minutes, and referee Jonathan Moss has found himself a busy man. He's booked Per Mertesacker and David Meyler for clumsy challenges in the middle of the pitch as good old-fashioned determination threatens to spill into serious foul play.

    Meanwhile, each of Hull's strikeforce have had a clear sight of Szczesny's goal, but while Jelavic drew a good save from the Polish stopper, Shane Long had a rush of blood and blazed over the crossbar.

  • The Hull City marketing department have obviously got somewhat bored by the lack of goals in the opening half hour of this one, and decided to pick this precise moment to unleash this news on the world...

  • GOAL! Hull 0 Arsenal 1: Just where would Arsenal be now if Aaron Ramsey hadn't missed three months of the season with injury. The midfielder has marked his comeback to the side with his ninth league goal of the season, and his 14th in all competitions. It was the Welshman who started the move, receiving a throw-in just inside the Hull half, and, after Ozil had done well to hold the ball up, Cazorla played a slick ball through a static defence for Ramsey to run on to and fire low past Stave Harper into the bottom left-hand corner. 1-0 to the Arsenal!

    Aaron Ramsey is back.

  • Hull 0 Arsenal 1: Off the post! Jake Livermore, on loan from Tottenham, nearly pegged Arsenal back straight away with a fine low drive from outside the area. There spin on the ball was enough to take it away from Szczesny's outstretched arm, but it was also enough to take it on to the foot of the woodwork.

  • GOAL! Hull 0 Arsenal 2: Arsenal have a wonderful second goal on the stroke of half-time! But Hull's players and supporters are absolutely furious with referee Moss! Jelavic appeared to be bundled over by Mikel Arteta ten yards outside the Arsenal penalty area, but when no free-kick was awarded, the Gunners broke downfield and doubled their lead in an instance. Cazorla and Ozil combined to send Olivier Giroud down the right, and, when the Frenchman put his cross over, Ramsey chested the ball down for Lukas Podolski to fire a first-time volley, left-footed, past Harper and into the bottom right-hand corner. A tremendous goal!

  • Half-time - Hull 0 Arsenal 2: Boooooooooooooooooo!
    4/20/2014 1:55:53 PM
  • Everton 1 Manchester United 0: The visitors have yet to cause any real problems for the home defence despite some intricate passing inside the Everton half and long spells of possession. With Rooney, Juan Mata and even Shinji Kagawa playing much of the game with their backs to goal, there appears to be a lack of players willing to take on the responsibility of having shots at goal. It would be no surprise to see Danny Welbeck and/or Javier Hernandez early in the second half.
    4/20/2014 3:52:58 PM
  • GOAL! Everton 2 Manchester United 0: Everton have a second goal three minutes before the break! It was scored by Kevin Mirallas, and made by Seamus Coleman, but credit must go to Mark Clattenburg who played a good advantage early in the move when Mata fouled Baines. From there, Naismith sent Coleman out wide, and, when the Irish full-back snuck a ball in behind Phil Jones, Mirallas met it to send a rasping drive first-time into the far corner from an acute angle. A lovely finish to a well-worked move!

    Kevin Mirallas celebrates his goal by having a quick look for Ross Barkley's early shot.

  • Half-time - Everton 2 Manchester United 0

    David Moyes receives a warm welcome from someone - who prefers to remain anonymous.  

    4/20/2014 3:56:47 PM
  • Everton 2 Manchester United 0: Everton make a single substitution at the start of the second half with Antolin Alcaraz replacing Sylvain Distin in central defence, and almost immediately the Paraguayan proves his worth to the cause. Straight from kick-off, the ball fell to Wayne Rooney in the box, and once the striker had darted around Stones, he looked a certainty to score. However, he couldn't escape from Alcaraz and the danger was cleared behind for a corner.
