  • Welcome to The Independent's live coverage of today's Premier League action and what fascinating fixtures we have in store. It all starts with the Tyne-Wear derby at the Stadium of Light where Sunderland take on Newcastle while, later in the day, the two title favourites - Chelsea and Manchester City - go head-to-head at Stamford Bridge. Swansea and Tottenham are also in Sunday action following their Europa League exploits, welcoming West Ham and Hull City respectively.

  • Back in April, a Sunderland side plummeting towards relegation and under the leadership of a newly-appointed, fiery, charismatic, foreign coach came face-to-face with their fiercest rivals. Paolo Di Canio's team were comprehensive 3-0 winners at St James' Park that day and it was enough to drag them over the line to safety as the season came to a close.

    Today, a Sunderland side plummeting towards relegation and under the leadership of a newly-appointed, fiery, charismatic, foreign coach come face-to-face with their fiercest rivals. Gus Poyet does have time on his side, but he could really do with a similar result if he is to drag the Black Cats up and away from danger following their dreadful start to the season.

  • Team news from the Stadium of Light. Gus Poyet makes four changes to the Sunderland side that were comprehensively beaten at Swansea in his first game in charge, while Alan Pardew hands a full debut to defender Paul Dummett after the youngster impressed as a substitute against Liverpool last time out.

    Sunderland: Westwood, Bardsley, Dossena, Cattermole, O'Shea. Cuéllar, Larsson, Colback, Altidore, Fletcher, Johnson

    Subs: Ki, Gardner, Celustka, Giaccherini, Mannone. Roberge. Borini

    Newcastle: Krul, Debuchy, Santon, Tiote, Williamson, Dummett, Sissoko, Cabaye, Ben Arfa, Gouffran, Remy

    Subs: Anita, Cisse, Haidara, Elliot, Shola Ameobi, Obertan, Sammy Ameobi

  • Both Gus Poyet and Alan Pardew will know how important this Tyne-Wear derby is, but according to Martin Hardy, it will not be the managers getting the blame if things go wrong this afternoon...

    On Sunday, Sunderland and Newcastle meet at the Stadium of Light for the first North-east derby of the season. The men in the dugouts know what is at stake. Sunderland, under new manager Gus Poyet, are already seven points adrift of safety and need to get their season started if they are to have any chance of avoiding the drop. Newcastle are in mid-table but still smarting from the 3-0 derby defeat at St James' in April, easily Di Canio's finest moment on Wearside.

  • Sunderland 0 Newcastle 0: The first Tyne-Wear derby of the season is underway at the Stadium of Light, amid a raucous atmosphere.

    Lee Probert is the man in the middle who is going to have his hands full, dealing with the flailing legs of Lee Cattermole, Cheick Tiote et al.
    10/27/2013 1:31:58 PM
  • Steven Fletcher heads Sunderland in front within five minutes.

    10/27/2013 1:51:14 PM
  • Sunderland 1 Newcastle 0: It's wet and windy in the north-east which, after 'Lee Cattermole has been booked', was the sentence I was most expecting to write today. The combative midfielder has yet to oblige, but Yohan Cabaye just has, diving in on Jack Colback.
    10/27/2013 1:58:53 PM
  • Sunderland 1 Newcastle 0: Hatem Ben Arfa tries his luck with a speculative Newcastle free-kick from around 35 yards out, but his effort is high, wide and wasteful.
    10/27/2013 2:09:52 PM
  • Sunderland 1 Newcastle 0: The game - and the atmosphere - has calmed down as we approach the break. Newcastle are enjoying a heavy spell of possession, but seem to be lacking a cutting edge. Up front, Loic Remy looks an isolated figure as he struggles to make an impact; it must feel like he's back at QPR.
    10/27/2013 2:14:00 PM
  • Half-time - Sunderland 1 Newcastle 0: Sunderland lead the Tyne-Wear derby at the break after a blistering start in which Steven Fletcher headed the game's only goal, following a delightful delivery from Adam Johnson.

    Newcastle have grown as the game has progressed, but look as disjointed as this blog which, like Alan Pardew's team, are missing some key components.
    10/27/2013 2:17:44 PM
  • You've got to feel for this poor little fella if the score remains the same.

    10/27/2013 2:18:23 PM
  • It's not often that Shola Ameobi is the answer, unless the question is particularly flippant, but Alan Pardew will no doubt be considering introducing the long-serving forward in the second half given his record in the derby...

    10/27/2013 2:31:16 PM
  • Sunderland 1 Newcastle 0: There is a change for Newcastle at the start of the second half, but it is Papiss Cisse who is coming on, replacing Moussa Sissoko.
    10/27/2013 2:33:15 PM
  • Sunderland 1 Newcastle 0: The home crowd are up again and unhappy with a couple of non-decisions from Lee Probert. Altidore won the ball and launched a break, which saw both him and Fletcher felled by Newcastle challenges, but the referee was interested in either.

    The second half already appears to be following a similar pattern to the first with Newcastle dominating possession without reward, and Sunderland launching quick and direct attacks.
    10/27/2013 2:43:45 PM
  • GOAL! Sunderland 1 Newcastle 1: It's all square in the derby and Newcastle's equaliser has come courtesy of Mathieu Debuchy's first goal for the club. The Sunderland defence switched off for the first time this afternoon and allowed the full-back to creep in unmarked at the far post to convert Ben Arfa's wayward low shot.
    10/27/2013 2:45:21 PM
  • Sunderland 1 Newcastle 1: Newcastle's goal will go down as a Hatem Ben Arfa assist, but whether it was 'a scuffed shot' or meant as a cut back across goal clearly depends on your allegiance...

    10/27/2013 2:56:48 PM
  • Matthieu Debuchy celebrates his first goal for Newcastle.

    10/27/2013 2:59:17 PM
  • Sunderland 1 Newcastle 1: There's ten minutes remaining at the Stadium of Light and it's very much Newcastle now in the ascendency. With their right-back already on the scoresheet, left-back Davide Santon fancies his chances but he pulls his shot wide from outside the area.
    10/27/2013 3:08:12 PM
  • GOAL! Sunderland 2 Newcastle 1: A fantastic goal from substitute Fabio Borini! Sunderland launched a quick break, Altidore did well to hold the ball up and lay it off into the path of the oncoming Italian. There was still much for Borini to do, but he did it beautifully, rifling a right-footed shot into the top corner from 20 yards.

    After scoring the opener after five minutes, they've grabbed a second five minutes from the end. It could - should - be the winner.
    10/27/2013 3:12:27 PM
  • Sunderland 2 Newcastle 1: There are four minutes of injury time between Gus Poyet and his first win as Sunderland manager. Newcastle are pushing for another equaliser, but the home side have renewed fight in them.
    10/27/2013 3:19:31 PM
  • Full-time – Sunderland 2 Newcastle 1: The final whistle goes and Sunderland have won the 151st Tyne-Wear derby. Fabio Borini’s stunning late strike has given the supporters not only local bragging rights, but renewed hope for the remainder of the campaign.

    Like Paolo Di Canio before him, Gus Poyet has his first win as Sunderland manager against Newcastle, and he will expect it to be a similar catalyst for a season of survival. That’s where he will want the comparisons to end.
    10/27/2013 3:31:34 PM
  • Team news from Stamford Bridge.

    Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cole, Lampard, Cahill, Terry, Hazard, Ramires, Torres, Oscar, Schürrle

    Subs: Koren, Brady, Jakupovic, Nagy, McLean, Quinn, Proschwitz
    10/27/2013 3:49:28 PM
  • Franz Beckenbauer is at Stamford Bridge to take in a slice of the Premier League with Chelsea's encounter against Manchester City, and he's already adapted to one custom of the English game; looking at Geoff Shreeves with an air of utter bewilderment during an interview for Sky Sports.
    10/27/2013 3:52:55 PM
  • The teams are out on the pitch in the three Premier League games about to kick-off. We'll have live updates from each of them.
    10/27/2013 3:58:52 PM
  • Chelsea 0 Manchester City 0: Chelsea are making the early running at Stamford Bridge, and two bits of hesitant defending could have let them in. First, Fernando Torres failed to react to an Oscar ball into the box, and then Gary Cahill was played onside with a deep ball into the area, but the centre-back volleyed over when all alone in the box.
    10/27/2013 4:05:20 PM
  • Swansea 0 West Ham 0: There's nearly the rarest of beasts spotted in South Wales: a Stewart Downing goal. The West Ham winger cuts in from the right, but his low left-footed drive is turned away by Michel Vorm. Guy Demel goes close from the resulting corner, but loops his effort over the bar.
    10/27/2013 4:08:34 PM
  • Chelsea 0 Manchester City 0: The visitors enjoy a spell of precision passing which ends with Samir Nasri firing wide of Petr Cech's post from the edge of the box, although Howard Webb has already blown up for a foul against Sergio Aguero.
    10/27/2013 4:13:58 PM
  • Tottenham 0 Hull 0: At White Hart Lane, Paulinho goes close with a David-Platt-versus-Belgium-type effort. Unfortunately, the Brazilian international hasn't quite got the technique of the former Crewe man and hooks his shot over the crossbar.
    10/27/2013 4:15:46 PM
  • Swansea 0 West Ham 0: End-to-end stuff at the Liberty Stadium! First, the Swans are denied when Jussi Jääskeläinen keeps out a point blank Chico Flores header from a corner, and then seconds later, Ravel Morrison rolls a shot wide after an electric West Ham counter-attack.
    10/27/2013 4:18:50 PM
  • Chelsea 0 Manchester CIty 0: Frank Lampard fails to keep pace with Fernandinho and is booked after bringing his opponent down. Meanwhile, Martin Tyler and Gary Neville take a moment to talk through their favourite Leslie Nielsen films off the back of a 'Don't call me, Schürrle  gag. I'm just annoyed I didn't think of it first.
    10/27/2013 4:24:06 PM
  • Chelsea 0 Manchester City 0: What a miss from Fernando Torres! Manchester City go to sleep at the back yet again and the Spaniard finds himself all alone in the area, eight yards from goal. Leaning back, however, he hooks the ball well over the bar. It's not quite as bad as that miss at Old Trafford, but it's up there.
    10/27/2013 4:31:06 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 1 Manchester City 0: Torres makes amends moments later by setting up André Schürrle for his first Premier League goal. A low drive across the face of goal is converted at the back post from close range. The Spaniard might have missed it, but the German didn't and Chelsea lead.
    10/27/2013 4:33:11 PM
  • Chelsea 1 Manchester City 0: Now it's time to praise Torres who goes so close to doubling Chelsea's lead. WIth little back-lift, the striker unleashes a brilliant effort from a tight angle, but it crashes against the crossbar. 
    10/27/2013 4:38:59 PM
  • Tottenham 0 Hull 0: Former Tottenham midfielder is high, wide and dangerous with an effort at White Hart Lane - and that's just a reference to his haircut.
    10/27/2013 4:40:18 PM
  • The Independent's Kevin Garside sums it all up perfectly...

    10/27/2013 4:42:09 PM
  • You can call him what you like; he's just given Chelsea the lead.

    10/27/2013 4:44:11 PM
  • Half-time - Chelsea 1 Manchester City 0: The half comes to a close with two efforts in quick succession from Yaya Toure, but neither his header or long-range effort trouble Cech. Chelsea take what is just about a deserved lead in at the break, but it could feasibly have been more with better luck and finishing.
    10/27/2013 4:50:00 PM
  • Half-time - Swansea 0 West Ham 0: First half summery: lots and lots of corners.
    10/27/2013 4:50:30 PM
  • Half-time - Tottenham 0 Hull 0: The same amount of goals, but less corners.
    10/27/2013 4:50:59 PM
  • The Independent's Sam Wallace goes all Robert Louis Stevenson in pondering Fernando Torres' afternoon...

    10/27/2013 4:57:24 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 1 Manchester City 1: City catch everybody by surprise with a leveller at the start of the second half, not least Petr Cech! Aguero beats the offside trap after Nasri's fine through ball, but the angle is against him. Nevertheless, the Argentine hits it first time and the ball flies in at the Chelsea goalkeeper's near post before he has a chance to move and it's all square.
    10/27/2013 5:07:01 PM
  • Chelsea 1 Manchester City 1: Eden Hazard goes down easily under pressure from Pablo Zabaleta in the area, but Howard Webb is not moved by the Belgian's theatrics. Chelsea want a penalty, City want to see a yellow card for simulation. They both end up disappointed.
    10/27/2013 5:16:23 PM
  • Tottenham 0 Hull 0: Spurs have upped the ante at White Hart Lane, going close to breaking the deadlock on a couple of occasions since the restart, and they want a penalty when Roberto Soldado is challenge by Paul McShane, but the referee signals for a goal kick.
    10/27/2013 5:19:06 PM
  • Chelsea 1 Manchester CIty 1: Petr Cech saves well with his feet after David Silva manages to dig a shot out after some scrappy build-up play on the edge of the box. City's increased presence in the game has prompted Jose Mourinho into a double substitution with William and Mikel replacing Lampard and goalscorer Schürrle.
    10/27/2013 5:24:39 PM
  • Swansea 0 West Ham 0: The Hammers had the better of the first half, but it's the Welshmen who are pushing for a winner now. However, they are denied on the line twice in extremely quick succession by Jääskeläinen and his defence.
    10/27/2013 5:32:15 PM
  • PENALTY! GOAL! Tottenham 1 Hull 0: Tottenham have the lead at White Hart Lane and, not for the first time this season, they have broken the deadlock via a Roberto Soldado penalty. The Spaniard cooly tucked away after Ahmed Elmohamady was adjudged to have handled Jan Vertonghen's cross.
    10/27/2013 5:40:29 PM
  • Tottenham 1 Hull 0: There's concern for England 2014 World Cup winner Andros Townsend as he sprints down the wing, clatters over the advertising hoardings and into a cameraman. They're both receiving treatment as the game continues.
    10/27/2013 5:44:11 PM
  • Roberto Soldado scores from the penalty spot again (we should really save this image as a template).

    10/27/2013 5:46:13 PM
  • GOAL! Chelsea 2 Manchester City 1: Good Torres! Terrible City! It's an absolute disaster for the Manchester club. With less than a minute remaining, Joe Hart and Matija Nastasic make an absolute mess of William's hopeful punt forward. The centre-back attempts to head the ball back to his goalkeeper who has come rushing out to make the clearance, but only manages to nod it past him. Torres doesn't stop chasing and with the ball heading out the play, the striker just gets there to convert into the empty net.
    10/27/2013 5:48:14 PM
  • Full-time - Swansea 0 West Ham 0:
    10/27/2013 5:53:02 PM
  • Full-time - Chelsea 2 Manchester City 1: Fernando Torres has the last laugh with a dramatic late winner for Chelsea, but Manchester City will be devastated. Having played so well, especially in the second half, they contributed to their own downfall at the death with a horrendous defensive mix-up. Chelsea are up to second and will be the new title favourites tonight.
    10/27/2013 5:53:16 PM
  • Full-time - Tottenham 1 Hull 0: Tottenham survive a late Hull free-kick to claim another win and clean sheet, but there are sure to be concerns about their struggles in breaking defensive teams down. They again needed another penalty from Roberto Soldado to claim victory late on as they move up to fourth in the table.
    10/27/2013 5:58:22 PM
  • Fernando Torres has the final say after an up and down afternoon by netting Chelsea's winner.

    10/27/2013 6:04:15 PM
  • Fernando Torres' last act brings a thrilling weekend of Premier League action to a close. But it wasn't the only late winner today; Roberto Soldado's penalty for Tottenham, and Fabio Borini's stunning strike for Sunderland in the Tyne-Wear derby has meant the drama has been non-stop (providing we ignore the goalless game at the Liberty Stadium).

    We'll be back to do it all again next week when the standout games include Arsenal against Liverpool on Saturday evening and, the top-flight's first ever all-Welsh affair, Cardiff versus Swansea on Sunday afternoon. For now, thanks for reading and goodnight.
