  • Welcome to The Independent's coverage of all today’s action in the Premier League.

  • Can West Ham change the course of the title race?

  • The Independent's Sam Wallace was on Match of the Day 2 Extra today, here's what he had to say on Man City's title chances:
    "If Manchester City fail to win the Premier League title today it will be the biggest choke in football history. If they throw it away we will be talking about if for years to come. But I don't expect them to."

  • Manuel Pellegrini has brought Man City to the brink of the title after last year's turbulent season under Roberto Mancini:
    The squad that Manuel Pellegrini inherited was perhaps the strongest in the Premier League. They were also deeply disaffected.

    Twelve months ago, they had gathered at a hotel near Watford to prepare for the FA Cup final. For Edin Dzeko, Joe Hart and Samir Nasri, this might have been their last big occasion as Manchester City players. This afternoon they are 90 minutes and one point from winning the Premier League.

  • Is this the only way Paolo Di Canio can safely watch Sunderland games now?


    5/11/2014 12:33:57 PM
  • Greg Dyke has had a fairly controversial week...
    Manchester City’s likely coronation as Premier League title-winners on Sunday will be shrouded in controversy, with the FA chairman, Greg Dyke, declaring it “pretty depressing” if a side regularly featuring only two Englishmen are champions and Uefa about to impose severe penalties on the club for at least the next two seasons.

  • Southampton have opted for a funky way of cutting their grass... 


    5/11/2014 12:52:27 PM
  • The Independent's Sam Wallace was on MOTD2 Extra earlier, here's what he had to say on Southampton's prospects of keeping hold of their best players:

    "When you talk about the best young English players, I think what could happen at Southampton is kind of a justification for having rich owners at football clubs. If you look at the case of Chelsea, if Roman Abramovich had not arrived in 2003 they would have perhaps struggled to hold on to John Terry and Frank Lampard.

    "Unless you have the money to protect your young players, you have one good season and all the best ones are picked off. It could become very difficult for Southampton."

  • 5/11/2014 1:26:23 PM
  • Only 20 minutes until kick off in all today's games, will there be a final twist in proceedings? One man who could perhaps make the decisive impact is Andy Carroll, pushing for a World Cup spot could he help sink Man City and hand the title to his former club Liverpool.

  • 5/11/2014 2:05:51 PM
  • GOAL! Sunderland 0 Swansea 1 - Nathan Dyer
    Wayne Routledge finds Nathan Dyer with a pass and the diminutive forward beats Manonne with a good finish. 
    5/11/2014 2:08:01 PM
  • Man City 0 West Ham 0: Tentative start at the Etihad as City search for that early goal that would really help settle their nerves. They've had most of the ball so far but no breakthrough.
    5/11/2014 2:10:26 PM
  • GOAL! Hull 0 Everton 1 - James McCarthy
    Naismith feeds the ball through to McCarthy who unleashes a powerful shot from 12 yards that rifles into the Hull net.
    5/11/2014 2:10:54 PM
  • GOAL! Sunderland 0 Swansea 2 - Marvin Emnes
    The Dutchman is allowed to take a shot from outside the area and he beats Manonne, Sunderland are not putting up much of a fight here.
    5/11/2014 2:17:23 PM
  • GOAL! Tottenham 1 Aston Villa 0 - Paulinho
    Tottenham are heading towards the Europa League, as Paulinho sees his original shot saved but is on hand to tuck away the rebound.
    5/11/2014 2:17:44 PM
  • GOAL! Cardiff 1 Chelsea 0 - Craig Bellamy
    Bellamy has a long range strike and it deflects cruelly off Azpilicueta to beat Schwarzer. Bit late for Cardiff now though, they're already relegated.
    5/11/2014 2:18:39 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 0 Newcastle 1 - Martin Skrtel o.g.
    Big blow for Liverpool's title hopes and it's a cracking own goal from Skrtel, swinging a leg at a ball crossed in and slicing it into the far corner of his own net.
    5/11/2014 2:21:25 PM
  • GOAL! West Brom 0 Stoke 1 - Gareth McCauley o.g.
    It's own goal o'clock apparently as Arnautovic crosses the ball in and McCauley puts it past his own keeper.
    5/11/2014 2:25:02 PM
  • GOAL! Fulham 0 Crystal Palace 1 - Dwight Gale
    Joel Ward's cross is diverted in by Gayle and Fulham are going down with a whimper at this rate. 
    5/11/2014 2:33:13 PM

  • Dyer scores for Swansea 


    5/11/2014 2:35:31 PM
  • GOAL! Southampton 1 Man United 0 - Rickie Lambert
    Get him on the plane! Lambert clashes with Vidic, knocking the defender down and bloodying his face and then collects a pass from Davis to beat De Gea.
    5/11/2014 2:36:50 PM
  • GOAL! Tottenham 2 Aston Villa 0 - Nathan Baker o.g.
    Another own goal today! Nathan Baker heading Danny Rose's cross into his own net.
    5/11/2014 2:37:30 PM
  • GOAL! Man City 1 West Ham 0 - Samir Nasri
    I think they can start engraving City's name on the trophy, as Samir Nasri makes the breakthrough. He has the  ball outside the area on the right and with little on he fires a powerful low shot that pings in off the inside of the post.
    5/11/2014 2:40:03 PM
  • GOAL! Tottenham 3 Aston Villa 0 - Emmanuel Adebayor [pen]
    Villa are sinking without trace. They are very lucky not to have been relegated this season. Agbonlahor commits handball in the area and Adebayor slots the penalty home.
    5/11/2014 2:42:03 PM
