  • Another man who has been in the headlines is Jose Mourinho:
    Jose Mourinho last night accused Manuel Pellegrini of getting his sums wrong as the row between the two over Chelsea’s spending escalated. 
    Pellegrini, the Manchester City manager, had said last week that Chelsea spent more than other teams – itself a response to Mourinho’s description of his Chelsea side as a “little horse” – and Mourinho insisted last night that the manager known as “the Engineer” had got his sums wrong.

  • Cardiff 0 Aston Villa 0 - So close for Cardiff! Zaha makes a great run and shoots only to see his shot tipped onto the post by Guzan. Craig Noone collects the rebound and dribbles well before firing a shot which gets deflected and loops onto the crossbar with Guzan beaten. Unlucky!
    2/11/2014 8:00:55 PM

  • Second halves getting back underway... 
    2/11/2014 8:47:11 PM
  • GOAL!!!! West Brom 0 Chelsea 1 - Branislav Ivanovic
    A goal! Finally a goal! David Luiz flicks Willian's corner on and Ivanovic sweeps it in from 5 yards out.
    2/11/2014 8:49:46 PM
  • Cardiff 0 Aston Villa 0 - Both these attacks are looking as toothless as a new born baby at the moment and so it remains goalless.

  • One goal so far this evening. ONE GOAL! What have we done to upset the football gods? 
    2/11/2014 9:01:25 PM

    2/11/2014 9:03:47 PM
  • West Ham 0 Norwich 0


    PROOF! 


    2/11/2014 9:12:01 PM
  • GOAL! Hull 0 Southampton 1 - Jose Fonte
    It's a good old-fashioned goal mouth scramble for the goal but in the end goal-line technology confirms Fonte as scorer. Although Lambert had then turned in the rebound from an acute angle.
    2/11/2014 9:18:28 PM
  • Cardiff 0 Aston Villa 0 - Huge last ten minutes coming up for these two sides and Agbonlahor has absolutely murdered a chance for the visitors. He's played through one on one and is six yards out but he dithers and is tackled by a defender tracking back.
    2/11/2014 9:24:03 PM
  • GOAL! West Ham 1 Norwich 0 - James Collins
    Cross from the right, Collins gets above Yobo, John Ruddy comes out, doesn't get there, Collins nods it in. Only defenders seem to be scoring tonight.
    2/11/2014 9:27:13 PM
  • Cardiff 0 Aston Villa 0 - David Marshall has saved Cardiff from a last minute defeat here! He dives full stretch to tip a header over the bar. What an effort from the keeper. Unbelievable!

  • FULL TIME
    Cardiff 0 Aston Villa 0
    2/11/2014 9:35:11 PM

  • GOAL! West Brom 1 Chelsea 1 - Victor Anichebe
    West Brom goal has been coming a long time but Anichebe levels things up.

    2/11/2014 9:59:10 PM
  • That's all from us today on a fairly dry evening's football that nevertheless had a big win for West Ham and missed opportunities for Cardiff and Chelsea. I hope you can join me again tomorrow for all Wednesday's games.
