  1. 1949: 
    GARETH BALE'S DEBUT
    Gareth Bale

    And now on to the main event of the rest of the evening - Gareth Bale's debut for Real Madrid.

    The world's most expensive footballer is due to get on at some point against Villarreal - and our man Jonathan Jurejko will guide you through it in the European live text commentary.

    Real kick off at 2100 BST, but until then you can enjoy the second half of Barcelona's match with Sevilla.

    Over you go then, and I'll see you back tomorrow for Southampton v West Ham. Adios

  2. 1948: 
    EURO LATEST

    Barcelona have just gone ahead in their La Liga match, while in Germany Borussia Dortmund hit six this afternoon. Goals galore.

  3. 1948:  
    MOTD's Steve Wilson at GoodisonEverton 1-0 Chelsea

    "Everton have beaten Chelsea and Roberto Martinez, who said Everton's season starts today, celebrates his first victory as Everton manager, and what a landmark victory it is. Everton have not just beaten anyone, Roberto Martinez has not just beaten anyone, he has beaten Mourinho, and Everton have beaten Chelsea."

  4. 1947: 

    New beginnings at Everton then, and a resolute display to give them a big win.

    Arsenal are today's big winners, while West Brom have stopped the rot with a first goal of the season.

  5. 1944: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Everton 1-0 Chelsea
    Roberto Martinez

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez speaking to Sky Sports following the win over Chelsea: "It feels really good because it was a special game, a special opposition and a very good performance.

    "You could see at the beginning we tried to get on the ball and tried to imposes our selves on the game But I thought the intensity in which we defended was superb. We always carried a threat upfront as well.

    "It was one of those performances where, as a manager, you are very proud of it."

  6. 1941: 
    Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Stoke defender Robert Huth: "Knocked out cold on pitch today. Man City had at least 18 players after that..."

  7. 1938: 

    Jose Mourinho has been fairly critical of forward Andre Schurrle today. He says that the German missed 'three good chances' and blamed him for Samuel Eto'o not scoring in the first half when his shot was blocked by Gareth Barry.

    Jose said: "It was a good block but it is an easy goal if Schurrle passes the ball quicker. He gave a slow pass."

  8. 1938:

    MarkyC: Last time Mourinho lost with Chelsea was against a Villa team with Gareth Barry in it. Coincidence?

    Ben Rabinovich: Never thought I'd say this, but Gareth Barry looked alright today...

    Sham Gallagher: A massive win for Everton. Poor Chelsea defending upset them today. They really need to tighten up in defence.

  9. 1937: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Everton 1-0 Chelsea
    Gareth Barry

    Everton midfielder Gareth Barry, speaking to Sky Sports after making his debut against Chelsea: "It was a fantastic atmosphere, night matches at Goodison Park are always special.

    "The boys put a great shift in and we deserved it. The lads have made me welcome for the last 10 days and it was a great performance, Chelsea played really well but we deserved it."

  10. 1935: 
    BAD START?
    Everton v Chelsea

    And now a stat which says more about how well Chelsea tend to start a season than anything else, the seven points from their opening four Premier League matches is their worst of the Roman Abramovich era, since they took six pts from their opening four matches in 2002-03.

  11. 1933: 

    There'll be more reaction from both camps before the end of the evening, while we can also reflect on the fact that Arsenal are top of the league.

  12. 1929: 

    Could you have won that game Jose? "Of course, of course.

    "We had 21 shots and risked everything we could but a team who has chances like that and doesn't take them deserves to lose."

  13. 1928: 

    Steven Naismith must have had some paper round as a youngster. He's up there with the oldest-looking 27-year-olds I've ever seen.

    What a performance though, he provided bags of energy down the right-hand side and popped up with the all-important goal when it mattered most.

  14. 1926:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Goodison ParkFULL-TIME ANALYSIS- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    "Everton showed resilience as well a determination to pass the ball in the manner demanded by new manager Roberto Martinez - and this is a win of huge significance for the Spaniard.

    "Martinez may also have pulled off one of the shrewdest signings of the transfer window in Gareth Barry, who was magnificent as Everton recorded their first Premier League win this season."

  15. 1924: 

    Chelsea's last Premier League defeat under Jose Mourinho was 2 September 2007, a 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa. Let's wait and see what Jose made of this one. where Chelsea bossed it throughout but missed a host of chances and were eventually shut out by some disciplined and organised Everton defending.

  16. 1922: 

    Jose Mourinho loses at Goodison Park for the first time as Roberto Martinez wins for the first time as Everton manager. Landmarks all round, and a resolute backs-to-the-wall display from the home side.

  17. 1922: 
    FULL-TIME- Everton 1-0 Chelsea
  18. 1921: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Leon Osman with a shooting chance! Over the bar.

    The final, final minute now surely...

  19. 1919: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    David Luiz handles the ball under pressure from Kevin Mirallas, who has been superb as a lone striker in the last 20 minutes or so. Mirallas is then replaced by Barcelona youngster Gerard Deulofeu.

  20. 1919: 
    INJURY TIME- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Three minutes of added time. Three minutes.

    This is where champions score goals.

  21. 1917: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    It is Leighton Baines to take the free-kick, he curls a beauty over the wall and it flicks the very top of the crossbar with Petr Cech a spectator. That would have wrapped that one up!

  22. 1917: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Sam Kier: I wonder if Mourinho wishes he had Lukaku on the bench? Mad decision to let him go for another season.

  23. 1916: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Brilliant hold-up play from Kevin Mirallas, he holds off two men to keep the ball before finding Ross Barkley, who is tripped on the edge of the area. Free-kick in Leighton Baines territory.

    Steven Naismith is replaced by John Stones.

  24. 1913: 
    FINAL FIVE- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Into the last five minutes then, and it's David Luiz on the left wing, John Terry at the back on his own, Chelsea all over the place as they search for this equaliser...

  25. 1910: 
    YELLOW CARD- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Cynical defending again from Chelsea as David Luiz wrestles Kevin Mirallas to the floor, he's the last man but he is also in his own half so he gets a yellow card. The home fans want to see red, but can you call it a goalscoring opportunity when you're 60 yards from goal?

  26. 1909: 
    GET INVOLVED #bbcfootball
    Gareth Barry

    Mark Schumann: I used to think Gareth Barry wasn't quite international quality but now I think his name should be first on the team sheet.

  27. 1907: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Seamus Coleman robs Eden Hazard and charges off towards goal, but the Belgian just cynically shoves him to the floor. He is just outside the area, it's a free-kick and a booking for Hazard.

    Crucially it's more time killed.

  28. 1906: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Ramires stands on the touchline screaming for the ball and when he gets it he beats Ross Barkley and fires in a low cross which Samuel Eto'o almost turns in.

    Everton then break clear and Kevin Mirallas thrashes in a powerful shot which Petr Cech has to claw away. What an end to this game!

  29. 1904: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Branislav Ivanovic wins a header from the corner as well but Tim Howard just about scrambles it away, Everton clinging on but they can't retain the ball at all. Get Duncan Ferguson on.

  30. 1903: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    End-to-end now as Chelsea pile men forwards, Samuel Eto'o has come out on to the left wing and he wins another corner from Seamus Coleman. Fifteen minutes remaining.

  31. 1901: 
    GET INVOLVED #bbcfootball

    Dazzler: Eto'o and Torres - a front two to make you drool. 5 years ago.

  32. 1901: 
    LAST TWENTY- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Into the final 20 minutes...

  33. 1859: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    That final change may leave Chelsea light at the back and Everton suddenly have their best attack of the half, overloading down the right-hand side but Seamus Coleman's cross is scrambled away for a corner. Ramires then has to be alert to head the set-piece behind. Pressure mounting on the Chelsea goal.

  34. 1858: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Jose Mourinho goes for broke, it's Fernando Torres on in place of Ashley Cole. It's got to go big!

  35. 1856: 
    CLOSE!- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    For the second time since half-time, the Chelsea fans think that they have scored as Ramires arrives at the near post to clip a near-post cross into the side-netting. For the second time, they are wrong.

  36. 1856:

    What was your result of the day? Let us know on Twitter, #resultoftheday

    Ben Hargreaves: Blackpool remaining unbeaten and winning with 10 men against Bournemouth.

    Kettle: Hughes evolution finally allowing the quality we had before to shine through. Had City rattled majority of the game.

    Fergus Fraser Hafter: Definitely Tranmere 3-4 Brentford, absolutely crazy game with 2 goals in the last 2 minutes.

  37. 1854: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Here's a big debut for Everton fans, James McCarthy comes on in place of Nikica Jelavic. Can the £13m man keep hold of the ball?

  38. 1852: 
    YELLOW CARD

    Did I say earlier that Oscar had come on and come off? Apologies, it was Juan Mata who was replaced by Oscar. Sorted.

    Branislav Ivanovic then goes into the book for a handball after claiming he was pushed. Into the last 25 minutes.

  39. 1849: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea are mounting a siege operation which Steven Seagal would appreciate now, Everton camped in for the duration hanging on to their lead. It's a disciplined line-up from the hosts but you imagine that Chelsea will continue to create chances in the final half hour.

  40. 1849:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Goodison ParkEverton 1-0 Chelsea

    "Oscar now pushed into the space just behind Samuel Eto'o as Chelsea chase this equaliser. Frank Lampard also on and he has been a scourge of Everton throughout his career. Suspect it might be a long second half for Everton and their supporters and it may not be long before Roberto Martinez contemplated the introduction of James McCarthy."

  41. 1847: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Oscar's first touch sees him skip into the area and he is sandwiched by Leon Osman and Sylvain Distin before hitting the deck - he wants a penalty but Howard Webb waves it away.

  42. 1846: 

    Connor [below] has waded into the great Samuel Eto'o apostrophe debate there. I've been avoiding having to use a possessive apostrophe on his name.

    Is Eto'o's the correct use? It looks very wrong on several levels.

  43. 1846: 
    GET INVOLVED #bbcfootball

    Dave Wilson: Barkley running the show for the Toffees - best player on the pitch, 2-0 Blues.

    Moz Chughtai: Barry is a great signing for Everton. Just the experienced head required after Phil Neville's retirement.

    Connor Fitzpatrick: Imagine the torrent of abuse Torres would've got had he missed Eto'o's chance. Eto'o looks sluggish and doesn't work as hard.

  44. 1845: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Jose Mourinho makes two changes - Juan Mata and Andre Schurrle are off, Frank Lampard and Oscar are on.

    Will that do the trick?

  45. 1843: 
    SHOWBOAT- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Megs!

    Ross Barkley slips the ball smoothly between the legs of John Mikel Obi as Everton finally mount an attack but it breaks down when Steven Naismith overhits the cross. Better from the hosts though, who then have another opening but Nikica Jelavic heads tamely wide.

  46. 1840: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Everton haven't been out of their half so far this half, Leon Osman isn't helped by a bodycheck from referee Howard Webb. You don't walk those off, he's a solid customer.

  47. 1836: 
    CLOSE!- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    And Chelsea go close again, Eden Hazard drilling a shot into the chest of Tim Howard, he can't hold on to it and Samuel Eto'o scuffs the follow-up wide.

  48. 1834: 
    CLOSE!- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    What a start to the half from Chelsea. Football at its devastatingly simple best. Ramires spins away from a challenge in midfield, runs 40 yards in no time at all and slips in Andre Schurrle, who dinks over Tim Howard, but into the side-netting. Close!

  49. 1833: 
    KICK-OFF- Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    Jose Mourinho has never lost at Goodison Park. Yet.

  50. 1831:

    Edmund Emiowei: Everton out-Chelsea-ing Chelsea - soaking up pressure for long periods, then BAM!- hit them on the break.

    Lover boi: Ross Barkley running the show at Goodison Park. Great player.

    Kebabmon: Like the look of Barkley. Obviously he will be injury prone and burnt out by the age of 25. Probably shipped off to Madrid.

  51. 1828: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    A tough half-time team talk for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, as his side played well for the majority of that match but couldn't finish their chances.Still, with a bench that reads Essien, Lampard, Torres, Oscar, De Bruyne, Schwarzer and Cahill I'm sure he will be able to sort it out.

  52. 1825: 

    I like Sam's idea below, a scouting method of how good players are based on the number of entries they get in each live text. There may be money to be made in that one...

  53. 1824: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Shaun from Scotland, via mobile on 81111: "Branislav Ivanovic is not really talked about but he is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League, class player."

    Sam, via mobile on 81111: "Torres's contribution to Chelsea was so consistently minimal than he would only be mentioned once or twice on live text during a whole game when he played. Eto'o has already changed that."

    Josh, via mobile on 81111: "Chelsea are paying for all those misses. First decent Everton chance is put away. It's clinical."

  54. 1824: 
    MAGIC OF THE CUP

    An FA Cup fixture between non-league sides Sleaford Town and Huntingdon Town was abandoned three minutes from time this afternoon after a mass brawl broke out between the players.

    Sleaford were leading 2-1 in the first round qualifying fixture when tempers flared after a Huntingdon player was sent off.

    "One of the Huntingdon players collided with one of Sleaford management team and that seemed to set it off," says a Sleaford spokesperson. "We are unsure what will happen with the game - whether it will be replayed or not."

    Chaos.

  55. 1823: 

    Carnival time at Goodison Park as some sort of Rio-style dance troupe emerge. Phil McNulty will be bemused.

  56. 1819: 
    Everton 1-0 Chelsea

    I must confess to being slightly surprised to see Steven Naismith in the Everton XI this afternoon but he's been excellent down the right-hand side for the Toffees.

    He also scored in the last meeting between the clubs, a 2-1 Chelsea win at Stamford Bridge in May. Chelsea will hope that they can repeat that scoreline today.

    Naismith
  57. 1819:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Goodison ParkEverton 1-0 Chelsea

    "Real punch on the nose for Chelsea right on half-time as Steven Naismith puts Everton ahead. They will be regretting those missed chances at this stage."

  58. 1818: 
    HALF-TIME- Everton 1-0 Chelsea
  59. 1816: 
    GOAL- Everton 1-0 Chelsea - Steven Naismith (45 mins)

    A birthday goal for Steven Naismith! He'll remember turning 27 now as he heads home against the run of play. Ross Barkley finds Leon Osman on the corner of the area, he dinks a lovely ball to the back post, Nikica Jelavic does really well to head back and Naismith nods in from on the line.

  60. 1814: 
    CLOSE!- Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Samuel Eto'o is right at home in a Chelsea shirt. He links up beautifully with Eden Hazard, a one-two foxing Phil Jagielka before popping a pass out to Juan Mata on the left corner of the box. Mata runs on to it but decides to try a deft chip when a powerful shot may have been the best call, the ball ends up floating wide of the far corner.

  61. 1812:

    Tom, Manchester, via mobile on 81111: "Hmmm very interesting that Barry is showing that reading of the game that City lacked in midfield today!"

  62. 1811: 
    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Branislav Ivanovic is the latest Chelsea man to have a chance, heading Juan Mata's free-kick over the top from seven yards. Half-time approaching and Everton will be glad to get in goalless.

    Shaun Farrelly: Wonder what influence that Roberto Martinez has had on Tim Howard adopting the Ali Al-Habsi look with the beard and bald head?

    Alistair Lowe: Dodgy keeping from Tim Howard but then realised it was Hashim Amla in goal. Great block from Barry though.

    Richard Powell: Seamus Coleman is fast becoming my favourite player - Love his hard-working, no-nonsense approach at both ends of the pitch.

  64. 1808: 
    CLOSE!

    Jose Mourinho can't believe it! Huge miss from Andre Schurrle, losing all composure to blaze wildly into the Gladwys Street end after a fine rampaging run from Ramires. He was onside, just smashed his shot over the top.

  65. 1805: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    This game has had a rocket in the last five minutes as we now have chance after chance! Ramires is the latest to go close, collecting a pass from Samuel Eto'o and firing in a rising drive which forces Tim Howard into a fine save.

  66. 1805:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Goodison ParkEverton 0-0 Chelsea

    "Subdued game in a subdued atmosphere at Goodison Park but Samuel Eto'o continues to look a real threat. Yes he should have scored when Everton keeper Tim Howard could only find Andre Schurrle with a shocking clearance - but the real credit goes to Gareth Barry for a quite magnificent saving tackle in front of an open goal."

  67. 1805: 
    CLOSE!- Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    And now a huge chance at the other end as Everton go close! Leon Osman and Kevin Mirallas work the space smartly behind Ashley Cole, Mirallas picking out Steven Naismith at the near post but h scuffs his shot wide under pressure.

    Jamie via mobile on 81111: In response to Bob's comment about Arsenal turning to Ozil and being a one-man team.... What a load of rubbish! Ramsey's on fire, Giroud's on form, Podolski is insane when fit, Walcott was unstoppable last season. We don't need to rely on one man to get our goals like Spurs did last season."

  70. 1759: 
    CLOSE!

    Brilliant from Gareth Barry who saves a certain goal! Tim Howard gets in a right tangle in the Everton goal, his pass to Sylvain Distin landing at the feet of Andre Schurrle inside the penalty area.

    Schurrle did everything right, squaring the ball for Samuel Eto'o, but his shot is somehow turned over the bar by a flying Barry who arrived from nowhere. Superb.

    Sophie Gayter: David Moyes please go back to Everton in January for Ross Barkley. Sensational talent.

    Frederick Callaghan: Ross Barkley looks like he could be a very good player, Martinez will be perfect for his development too.

    George Fisher: Mata has been brilliant for @CFC. If Chelsea were really considering selling him, they're mad!

  72. 1756: 

    My favourite managerial quote of the day so far from West Brom boss Steve Clarke:

    "The players know that to win matches we have to score goals."

  73. 1753:  
    Garth Crooks, BBC SportARSENAL REACTION- Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal

    "Ozil was outstanding, as was Ramsey, but Ozil looked like he has been at Arsenal for years. His ball across for Giroud was superb and another for Walcott was also superb, and Walcott should have scored. We are going to hear an awful lot from this kid."

  74. 1752: 
    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    That all-England select triumvirate of Leon Osman, Gareth Barry and Ross Barkley are working hard in the Everton midfield to shut Chelsea down, and doing it well so far. The tempo has slowed now.

  75. 1749:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Goodison ParkEverton 0-0 Chelsea

    "Lively start from Samuel Eto'o on his Chelsea debut and he should have scored when he headed Ramires' cross wide. The striker's movement is good and Juan Mata's lively opening suggests this could be a source of real threat for Chelsea today."

  76. 1748: 
    GARETH BALE

    A certain record-breaking Welshman will be in the headlines again later on - Mr. G. Bale.

    You will be able to follow every moment of his Real Madrid debut in our European live text commentary which has just started. Why not join Jonathan Jurejko for the latest action on the continent?

  77. 1747: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes: "We are disappointed that we haven't beaten Man City who made a statement of intent over the summer. But we made them look quite ordinary today. In terms of chances and general play, we were always looking positive.

    "It was just a shame we didn't take our chances. Box to box we were excellent but we needed that killer instinct. The lads are playing exceptionally well and we are enjoying what they are producing."

  78. 1746:  
    Garth Crooks, BBC SportEverton 0-0 Chelsea

    "I can already tell that Samuel Eto'o will be a fantastic acquisition simply by the positions he takes up. When people like him move away from the ball and can be hit by quality balls, it bodes badly for the rest of the Premier League."

  79. 1746: 
    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Everton's pattern of play looks set, they are soaking up the pressure from Chelsea and then hitting them on the break. Ross Barkley is the latest to bring the legs from midfield, carving a channel through the centre before electing to pick out Kevin Mirallas on the left.

    His distribution is almost perfect too, but Branislav Ivanovic cuts it out.

    Nikica Jelavic and Steven Naismith combine smartly on the right and Naismith's cross is cut out by Petr Cech. Good few minutes for the hosts.

  80. 1745: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "It is always a difficult game at Stoke, but it's a good point in a difficult week with all the players we had on international duty. We could only spend one day with the squad and we also have the Champions League next week."

  81. 1742:

    Bob, via mobile on 81111: "Tottenham sell Bale & now look a far better & balanced unit whilst Arsenal are pinning all their hopes on Ozil. After all their jibes last season they should heed there own warning about being a one man team."

    James, in a river paddling furiously while refreshing the live feed, via mobile on 81111: "People need to give Di Canio a chance. The early home fixture list is as hard as you'll get. Their season will improve!"

  82. 1742: 
    CHAMPIONSHIP REVIEW

    There were victories in the Championship for the top two. Blackpool recorded a 2-1 win away at Bournemouth despite having Jack Robinson sent off with 30 minutes of the match remaining. Charlie Austin scored the only goal of the game as second-placed QPR defeated Birmingham. The standout result of the day came at bottom-side Millwall, with Craig Bryson scoring a hat-trick to help Derby to a 5-1 victory. Bolton, like Millwall, remain on two points following a 1-0 home defeat by Leeds.

  83. 1739: 
    CLOSE!- Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    It's been all Chelsea but Everton break with pace and with purpose and this is a good opening. Steven Naismith carries the ball down the right and floats in a cross for Nikica Jelavic, but his header is right at Petr Cech.

  84. 1738: 
    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    It's a really impressive start from Chelsea as Samuel Eto'o and then Juan Mata beat men with ease, Mata almost getting in on the goalkeeper until Everton debutant Gareth Barry makes a fine sliding tackle to keep him out.

  85. 1737: 
    GET INVOLVED #bbcfootball

    Kyle McGrath: Mata, Mikel, Eto'o, Schurrle. Plenty of players with something to prove today, expecting a Chelsea win here.

    Ashley Turnbull: EPL the best league in the world? We've had to wait until Eto'o was 32 and past it before he came to play here!

    Controversial, Ashley...

  86. 1735: 
    CLOSE!- Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    The first chance for Samuel Eto'o in English football, and its a good one too. Ramires strides through midfield, waves Eto'o to the back post and then delivers a perfect cross on to the Cameroon striker's head. There's plenty of power in his header, but it's over the top. Good chance though in a dominant start from Jose Mourinho's men.

  87. 1734: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal

    Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore on his disallowed goal: "I was just tussling back and forth with Bacary Sagna but I thought the referee was going to let us play, I got the better of him and then finished it off but I didn't hear the whistle and it was brought back. The keeper didn't either as he played 100% and I think Kieran Gibbs tried to clear it too. It was a good time to score and it would have been a good reward for us."

  88. 1733: 
    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    David Luiz steps out of the Chelsea defence and plays a smart pass out to Branislav Ivanovic on the right wing, his low cross is cleared but Chelsea keep the pressure on, with Samuel Eto'o winning a corner.

  89. 1730: 
    KICK-OFF- Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea in a super-smart, slick all-black kit this afternoon, and we are away.

  90. 1730:  
    Garth Crooks, BBC SportREACTION- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    "Manchester City looked like the team that played poorly under Mancini. It's like they don't understand the Premier League, there are no easy games and they are going to have to work really hard to get anything."

    Everton v Chelsea (1730 BST)

    Teams are out on the field at Goodison Park then, where Everton line up with three England internationals in midfield - when was the last time that happened?Chesea have Juan Mata back in and a quite absurdly strong bench.

    Paolo Di Canio

    Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio on being sent off: "He came to me and said if you keep going with your manner I sent you up to the stand. I said to him 'if you want to complete a perfect job, you send me off.' And that is what he did. I will never invite the referee to send me off again."

  93. 1727: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Aston Villa 1-2 Newcastle

    Alan Pardew: "We played very very well today and I thought some of our play was what it should be at Newcastle. We have a real attacking mode at the club and that's the type of offensive side I want to put out but I have been able to do so really since Demba Ba left."

    Paolo Di Canio

    Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio on referee Martin Atkinson denying Jozy Altidore's goal: "This is a big mistake. It's obvious, this is not Paolo Di Canio's opinion, the referee has to wait and see how the action finishes. When it is body to body with Jozy Altidore and Bacary Sagna, he has to wait until how it finishes and not stop the game. It was a big, big mistake."

    "Newcastle have not been having great results, there has been a lot of negativity coming out of Newcastle with a few ex-players having their say in the last few weeks, but they have good players there. Cabaye, Ben Arfa and Remy were involved in the goals today, and it's nice to see Alan Pardew smile because he has a lot to live up to."

    Everton v Chelsea (1730 BST)

    Romelu Lukaku is out at Goodison, showing the fans his shirt and giving a textbook wave to all four corners of the ground.

    The big Belgian is not available to play today as part of the terms of his loan move from Chelsea,

    Who would you rather have in your squad - Demba Ba or Lukaku? Or Samuel Eto'o or Lukaku for that matter? Was letting the Belgian go again good business from Chelsea?

    MANAGER REACTION- Aston Villa 1-2 Newcastle

    Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert: "We never really got going in the first half. Credit to Newcastle on that side. We got back in the game with Christian's [Benteke] goal. The second goal was a poor goal to concede. You pick yourselves up when you go behind and go again. We gave it a right go but you can't start the way we did."

    Dan, Spurs fan, via mobile on 81111: "Really pleased with today's win, nice to see Gylfi take centre stage and a fantastic debut for Eriksen. One question though, can't see Willian in the Chelsea squad today, what a fantastic buy he was! Spurs obviously didn't need him anyway!"

    Tom, Manchester, via mobile on 81111: "Before City fans go completely crazy, I would like to point out, we play 7 games in the next 21 days. Squad rotation is therefore needed and to pick up a point at one of the toughest away fixtures of the league without the majority of our star players it's still a decent result. In Pellegrini I trust!"

    Newcastle manager Alan Pardew: "We carried a lot of offensive threat. We haven't had enough threat, but we've got it now. Hatem Ben Arfa got a lot of headlines last time he scored against Fulham but I thought he did just OK then. Today he was unplayable. Hatem was on fire today.

    "He has the ability to hold on to the ball and give us a rest, then burst past one or two players. If he can get consistency not only will he be a threat for us, but a threat for France at the World Cup."

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on Jozy Altidore's disallowed goal: "We were a bit lucky at 2-1 maybe, but we found the mental resources to win.

    "It could have been a foul for us as well because Altidore took Sagna as well but the referee blew before the goal, I was sure of that because I saw him."

  105. 1706: 
    Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal

    Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal got a bit lucky with the decisions today, and he needs defender Laurent Koscielny to sort himself out.

    The Frenchman has now conceded six penalties in the Premier League. Only Gary Caldwell (currently at Championship side Wigan) has conceded more penalties since the start of the 2008-09 season. Caldwell gifted seven spot-kicks in that period.

    Manchester City were laboured today, not creating much at all in a limited showing. But before you City fans get too disheartened, it's still seven points from four games, a place above Manchester United in the table ahead of next weekend's derby, and just two points off the summit.

    Not a disaster.

    PLAYER REACTION- Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal

    Arsenal goalscorer Aaron Ramsey on Mesut Ozil: "You've seen what he is all about slipping those balls in, he has one of highest assist-rates in Europe and he is going to create a lot of opportunities for us.

    "I'm delighted to be on the scoresheet again. In the last few seasons I've been getting into right positions but maybe I've been lacking a bit of composure but I'm enjoying it now."

    Everton give Gareth Barry a debut in midfield but fellow newcomer James McCarthy is on the bench. Romelu Lukaku does not play against his parent club after joining Everton on loan. Everton are without Steven Pienaar and Arouna Kone because of injury.

    Samuel Eto'o makes his debut for Chelsea while Juan Mata also starts but £32m Willian is not even on the bench. Gary Cahill starts on the bench after his outstanding midweek performance for England against Ukraine in Kiev.

    "Roberto Martinez seeks his first Premier League win as Everton manager here at Goodison Park today - but will have to overcome the considerable obstacle of Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to achieve it.

    "Martinez uses his programme notes to pay tribute to chairman Bill Kenwright after a hectic final hour of the transfer window that saw Everton sign James McCarthy from Wigan in a £13m deal, Gareth Barry on loan from Manchester City and bring in Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku on a season-long deal.

    "He said: "The chairman was very influential and he was paramount on allowing us to look forward to the future with a stronger squad and a stronger financial footing."

    GM stands for Goal Machine. Gareth McAuley has equalised for West Brom!

    He scored in both games for Northern Ireland in the international break and has now found West Brom's first league goal of the season. And what a header it is too, he demanded it. Rising high from a left-wing corner, thumping it home.

  127. 1646: 
    Stoke 0-0 Man City

    It's not been a good showing from Manchester City though. Not at all. Stoke win a free-kick in a good area, but Marko Arnautovic thumps it over.

    There will be six minutes of added time.

  128. 1645: 
    Tottenham 2-0 Norwich

    Tottenham cruising to victory in the dying stages, their new signings have impressed this afternoon.

    FINAL FIVE

    Into the last five minutes then - who wants it?

  130. 1640: 
    DISALLOWED GOAL- Fulham 1-0 West Brom

    Yet another disallowed goal for Fulham, as Hugo Rodallega bangs in a rebound from an offside position. West Brom have been fairly awful so far but can they now seize their chance?

  131. 1640: 
    CLOSE!- Aston Villa 1-2 Newcastle

    Papiss Cisse has a chance to make it 3-1, but his header at the far post finds the side-netting. In Newcastle's next attack, Cheick Tiote fires in a 25-yard shot that is saved by Brad Guzan. Villa's Matt Lowton tries his luck from a similar distance at the other end but his shot fizzes a yard wide.

  132. 1640: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Everton v Chelsea (1730 BST)

    Samuel Eto'o starts up front for Chelsea in the tea-time kick-off.

  133. 1638: 
    Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Good news. Stoke defender Robert Huth, as sturdy and reliable as a Mk II Transit, is up on his feet. He looks groggy but he's been given the all-clear to continue.

    Manchester City need to find a spark from somewhere if they are to get the win.

  134. 1637: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal

    Not a bad debut for Mesut Ozil then - and he comes off to be replaced by Thomas Vermaelen. Like for like.

  135. 1638: 
    Hull City 1-1 Cardiff

    Hull striker Danny Graham turns and shoots, but his effort is deflected just wide. Moments later, team-mate Sone Aluko puts the ball in the net but it's ruled offside.

    Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Robert Huth is out cold - the Stoke man gets a knee to the head from Alvaro Negredo as they compete for a header and he's out for the count. Could be a lengthy stoppage here as the big German gets some treatment.

  139. 1633: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal - Aaron Ramsey (76 mins)

    You have to say that's quite magnificent! A vintage Arsenal goal started and finished by Aaron Ramsey, who is a new man this season!

    Ramsey picks it up from deep, runs at the defence and plays the ball to Mesut Ozil, who works it on to Olivier Giroud. Giroud then threads the eye of the needle to play Ramsey in and he slots home at the near post.

    One-touch stuff, pass, pass, pass, goal. Magic.

  140. 1632: 
    CLOSE!- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Stoke hand a debut to Austrian forward Marko Arnautovic and he almost serves up a goal, his low cross hitting Matija Nastasic on the shins and forcing a good save from Joe Hart.

  141. 1632: 
    GOAL- Aston Villa 1-2 Newcastle - Yoan Gouffran (73 mins)

    It's that man again. Hatem Ben Arfa again leaves his markers behind. The Frenchman drifts in from the right and drills in a low shot that Brad Guzan can only parry into the path of substitute Yoan Gouffran who sidefoots the ball into the net.

  142. 1631: 
    Sunderland 1-2 Arsenal

    I would never like to predict Paolo Di Canio's movements but surely Craig Gardner will start the next game - he has been everywhere since he came on. His latest movements see him break past Laurent Koscielny to shoot across the face of goal as Sunderland push for this equaliser.

  143. 1632: 
    Hull City 1-1 Cardiff

    Cardiff are looking the more likely to score - there have been very few chances in this half though.

  144. 1632:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 live at Stadium of LightSunderland 1-2 Arsenal

    "The referee has got to let that go. He's panicked and put the whistle in his mouth but he should have let play carry on for a few seconds. There's an argument that Bacary Sagna should have been sent off anyway. Sunderland deserve something out of this game because they have been playing really well."

    Our snazzy new goal-line technology cameras were able to confirm that that Jozy Altidore shot was over the line before it could be cleared - the technology works, but the referee doesn't.

    What's going on here then? Jozy Altidore thinks he's scored for Sunderland after wrestling with Bacary Sagna but referee Martin Atkinson has already blown up for a foul by Sagna on the edge of the box.

    Play advantage man! Paolo Di Canio and his players cannot believe that.

  148. 1627:

    GOAL- Aston Villa 1-1 Newcastle - Christian Benteke (67 mins)

    Christian Benteke scores his fifth of the season. The Belgium striker climbs higher than every other player to head in from the edge of the six-yard area from a corner.

  150. 1625: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 1-2 Arsenal - Aaron Ramsey (67 mins)

    Lovely goal! Lovely, lovely goal from a man who is having some season. Carl Jenkinson gets up on the overlap out on the right flank, he look up and picks out Aaron Ramsey 20 yards from goal and the Welshman controls his volley superbly, crunching the low shot right into the net

  151. 1624:

    Newcastle's Papiss Cisse sees his shot blocked from six yards out after more good work from team-mate Hatem Ben Arfa down the right.

    GREAT SAVE!- Aston Villa 0-1 Newcastle

    Newcastle have looked dangerous on the counter. Hatem Ben Arfa cuts inside from the right and fires in a low curling effort that Brad Guzan palms round the post.

    Manchester City send on Sergio Aguero in place of Stevan Jovetic, as Javi Garcia begins to fall apart at centre-back. He makes a rash clearance which almost plays in Kenwyne Jones before sliding in to win it back. He doesn't look the most confident player out there.

  159. 1621:

    Aron Gunnarsson heads a yard wide from Kevin Theophile-Catherine's cross. Cardiff go close again.

  160. 1619: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Sunderland 1-1 Arsenal

    How has this stayed out? Craig Gardner whips in a free-kick from deep, everyone leaves it including Wojciech Szczesny, and it pings back off the inside of the post and away. Ki Sung-yueng's comedy attempts to reach the loose ball were in vain as he was offside.

  161. 1619: 
    CLOSE!- Tottenham 2-0 Norwich

    Almost the hat-trick for Gylfi Sigurdsson! The Icelander unleashes hell from his right foot, a 30-yard piledriver which John Ruddy pushes away.

  162. 1616: 
    DISALLOWED GOAL- Sunderland 1-1 Arsenal

    Sunderland have the ball in the net again - but Steven Fletcher is loitering offside as he bundles home Adam Johnson's cross. Arsenal suddenly look edgy.

    Jay: Pellegrini has really done nothing to convince anyone that Man City have traded up after firing Mancini.

  167. 1615: 
    GOAL-SHY ALBION- Fulham 1-0 West Brom

    If West Brom fail to score in the second half at Fulham, they will equal the Premier League record for most games into a season without scoring (Newcastle United in 2005-06 and Swansea City in 2011-12 also achieved this feat). The all-time top-flight record without scoring at the start of the season is five games, by Ipswich Town in the 1970-71 season.

    The good news is they've spent £13m on Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe.

    The bad news is those two have scored 17 Premier League goals each in a combined 218 appearances...

  168. 1611: 
    CLOSE!- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Good chance again as Stoke smell blood. Kenwyne Jones gets up really well to meet a diagonal ball but his powerful header lacks accuracy and fizzes over the crossbar. Manchester City looking out of sorts.

    This is why West Brom paid £6m for Victor Anichebe. No seriously, it is.

    The big man rolls his defender on the edge of the area superbly to open up a chance but his shot is not the best and David Stockdale saves with his feet.

  172. 1609: 
    CLOSE!- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Chances at both ends in a lively start to the second half at the Britannia Stadium. Stoke's Jonathan Walters fails to connect properly with a teasing cross and glances his shot across goal from six yards. City's Stevan Jovetic makes a sweet connection with his strike but volleys a first-time effort over the bar from 15 yards.

    EAST FIFE 4 FORFAR 5

    The classic of all scorelines could be on the cards today as the two sides meet in Scotland's League One, but if any announcers are getting excited we will need a lot of goals as it's 1-1 at the break. It could still happen...

  187. 1550:  
    MOTD's Martin Fisher at Villa ParkHALF-TIME- Aston Villa 0-1 Newcastle

    "Newcastle go in a goal up at the break and it's a lead Newcastle fully deserve after some great work by Loic Remy to set up Hatem Ben Arfa. It wasn't until towards the end of the half when Aston Villa finally got into the game with Ciaran Clark going closest."

  188. 1550: 
    Aston Villa 0-1 Newcastle

    Moussa Sissoko lifts the ball over the Aston Villa defence for Yohan Cabaye on the right-hand side of the area. The Frenchman's angled strike flashes a foot wide of the far post.

  189. 1547: 
    Sunderland 0-1 Arsenal

    Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio will not like this one bit. Defender Modibo Diakite trots over to Mesut Ozil as the players leave the pitch and wants to swap shirts after that first-half display. Ozil just laughs at him.

    I can't imagine that Arsene Wenger buys enough shirts for that to happen.

  190. 1547:  
    MOTD's John Roder at the KC StadiumHALF-TIME- Hull City 1-0 Cardiff

    "Curtis Davies' goal for Hull is their first in open play in the Premier League this season. It has been a disjointed first half and Danny Graham should have scored early on for the home team. Cardiff haven't offered too much up front."

  191. 1547:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 live at Stadium of LightHALF-TIME- Sunderland 0-1 Arsenal

    "Mesut Ozil has been absolutely fantastic, but he needs someone else to finish it off. Theo Walcott could easily have had a hat-trick and Sunderland fans will be worried because their side is being outplayed."

    Listen to live commentary on BBC Radio 5 live.

  192. 1547: 
    CLOSE!- Sunderland 0-1 Arsenal

    Almost a goal on an impressive first 45 minutes for Mesut Ozil. Olivier Giroud opens up the Sunderland defence with a first-time lay-off - he's very good at those - and he plays in Theo Walcott. His shot is saved, it comes back to Ozil, who weaves past one defender before firing in a low shot which is cleared.

  193. 1546:  
    MOTD's Jonathan Pearce at Britannia StadiumHALF-TIME- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    "Man City are finding it as tough against Stoke as they have done in recent seasons. Kenwyne Jones should have scored for the home side when through on goal and Jonathan Walters headed the best chance of the half wide. Stoke are giving as good as they are getting."

  194. 1546:  
    MOTD's Steve Bower at Craven CottageHALF-TIME- Fulham 1-0 West Brom

    "Steve Sidwell's goal for Fulham separates the two teams after what has been a tight, and sometimes tepid, game at Craven Cottage. Fulham boss Martin Jol said beforehand that this was a game his side must win and they have got their noses in front. West Brom have had a few flickers of attacking play but will need to show a bit more ambition in the second half if they are to get anything here."

  195. 1546:  
    MOTD's John Motson at White Hart LaneHALF-TIME- Tottenham 1-0 Norwich

    "The first-half could have been even better for Tottenham. An awful lot of their attacks have gone astray but Sigurdsson got the goal that mattered. Spurs had Norwich pushed back for the majority of the play and the new man - Eriksen - has been prominent."

  196. 1544: 
    CLOSE!- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Manchester City are next to threaten, with left-back Aleksandar Kolarov delivering one of his trademark free-kicks on to the roof of the net from 25 yards. Manager Manuel Pellegrini looks frustrated on the sidelines.

    A cross is swung in from the right which Newcastle keeper Tim Krul gets his fingers to. The ball runs to Ciaran Clark, whose shot finds the side-netting. Moments later, Andreas Weimann screws his shot from the edge of the area wide, under pressure from Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

    Centre-back Curtis Davies scores for the Tigers. A great ball from Tom Huddlestone finds the head of the former Aston Villa defender inside the six-yard area.

  203. 1538: 
    Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Stevan Jovetic has not done a great deal on his Manchester City debut but he picks the ball up in space only to fire wide from 25 yards.

  204. 1536: 
    CLOSE!- Tottenham 1-0 Norwich

    Magnificent defending from Danny Rose! Norwich look certain to score as Nathan Redmond whips in a teasing cross from the left, Michael Dawson slips in the middle and the ball runs on to Ricky van Wolfswinkel, but his shot is turned around the post by the sliding Rose who came across from left-back to cover. Superb anticipation.

  205.   
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 live at Stadium of LightSunderland 0-1 Arsenal

    "Mesut Ozil just tried a slide-rule pass through about five or six Sunderland players and although it didn't come off I don't know many players in British football who would have even considered that pass. It won't be difficult for the Match of the Day guys to pick out some examples when they are analysing him tonight and I'm sure they will be."

    Ah but here's the chance Stoke have been waiting for, as Kenwyne Jones piles through the middle but Joe Hart stands up well to make the save. It came after an error from midfield in Samir Nasri. Fairly open game at the Britannia now.

  209. 1531: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Aston Villa 0-1 Newcastle

    Villa defender Jores Okore comes off injured following an earlier clash with Loic Remy. He is replaced by Ciaran Clark. An early reshuffle for manager Paul Lambert.

    John Hartson, former Arsenal and Wales strikerFINAL SCORE

    "Magnificent from Eriksen, the weighted pass into Sigurdsson's path was excellent. He's technically very good, he rarely misses when he is in on goal."

  211. 1531: 
    Stoke 0-0 Man City

    Alvaro Negredo has bent a shot over the top from 25 yards but Manchester City are yet to seriously threaten Asmir Begovic in the Stoke goal. At the other end, Javi Garcia has done all right in his makeshift centre-half role.

  212. 1530: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Sunderland 0-1 Arsenal

    Theo Walcott once again finds himself clean through on goal after a clever pass from Mesut Ozil, but Kieran Westwood makes the stop. Arsenal turning the screw in search of a second goal.

  213. 1527: 
    Hull City 0-0 Cardiff

    Chances at a premium at the KC Stadium. Both teams are enjoying patches of good play, but lacking cutting edge.

    GOAL- Tottenham 1-0 Norwich - Gylfi Sigurdsson (28 mins)

    Talk about weight of pass...

    Christian Eriksen joins Mesut Ozil in the debut assist club with a peach of a pass, sliding the ball perfectly into the path of Gyfli Sigurdsson, who hammers it in from 15 yards. Wonderful touch from the Dane.

  216. 1526: 
    CLOSE!- Tottenham 0-0 Norwich

    But so nearly the opener for Spurs! Mousa Dembele finds a yard of space in a crowded penalty area to get a cutback in from the left, Roberto Soldado swivels to drive in a low shot but it's cleared from under the goalmouth by a desperate swing of Sebastien Bassong's left boot. Spurs turning it on...

  217. 1525: 
    Aston Villa 0-1 Newcastle

    Villa are on the attack again. This time Fabricio Coloccini blocks Andreas Weimann's low curling shot that appeared to be heading for the bottom corner.

  218. 1524: 
    Tottenham 0-0 Norwich

    Tottenham, beginning life without Gareth Bale, are well on top at home but can't find that final killer pass yet.

  219. 1524: 
    Aston Villa 0-1 Newcastle

    Newcastle defender Yapou Yanga-Mbiwa makes a brilliant tackle inside the box to prevent Christian Benteke from unleashing a shot on goal.

  227. 1516: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Sunderland 0-1 Arsenal

    Theo Walcott gets in behind the defence for Arsenal, but his shot is too close to Keiren Westwood and he is able to make the save. Jack Wilshere provided the pass, as Arsenal's midfield look to pick open that defence again.

  228. 1515: 
    CLOSE!- Stoke 0-0 Man City

    And, after Stevan Jovetic had a tame shot for Manchester City, Stoke should be ahead. Charlie Adam works some space on the right and crosses for Jon Walters, six yards out, but he heads wide.

    He should have scored there.

  229. 1515: 
    CLOSE!- Tottenham 0-0 Norwich

    New signing Christian Eriksen is in the thick of the action for Tottenham - finding some space in the box before firing in a shot at John Ruddy who parries the ball to the feet of Roberto Soldado. Under pressure, the Spaniard backheels the ball from inside the six-yard box, but his effort deflects on to the post. A let off for Ruddy.

  233. 1512:

    Newcastle have made the brighter start. Both Loic Remy, making his full league debut, and fellow Frenchman Hatem Ben Arfa, look lively.

  234. 1510: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 0-1 Arsenal - Olivier Giroud (11 mins)

    Class, class goal from Arsenal as Mesut Ozil marks his arrival with an early assist. A long ball is cleared down field, Ozil kills it with a wonderful touch of his left foot and has the presence of mind to take his time before squaring for the fast arriving Olivier Giroud, who makes no mistake with another assured finish. £42m well spent.

  235. 1510: 
    Sunderland 0-0 Arsenal

    With Mesut Ozil now operating in the number 10 role behind Olivier Giroud it's a promising opening 10 minutes for Arsenal. Jack Wilshere has already played better than he did for England in midweek.

  236. 1510: 
    Hull City 0-0 Cardiff

    Chances for Hull. Sone Aluko's shot is parried by Joe Lewis, the follow-up effort from Danny Graham goes high over the Cardiff bar.

    Manchester City make a bright start with Yaya Toure snapping into a tackle in midfield, winning the ball high up the pitch and playing in Samir Nasri, but the Frenchman can't get enough power in his shot and it's an easy save for Asmir Begovic.

    "I am very disappointed we lost the game but not in the manner in which we lost it or the way my players behaved and conducted themselves."

  241. 1504:

    This is close! Andros Townsend cuts in from the right wing, bangs in a left-footed shot which skims the near post. Almost our first goal of the day.

  242. 1502: 
    Sunderland 0-0 Arsenal

    Mesut Ozil drifts over to the right flank in the opening exchanges as Jack Wilshere charges on through the middle of the defence before running out of grass. I imagine he'll be fairly flexible as the game wears on.

    Fellow promoted side Cardiff make three changes after drawing with Everton before the break. Joe Lewis makes his Premier League debut in goal after David Marshall injured his hip playing for Scotland while Don Cowie and Kevin Theophile-Catherine replace Matthew Connolly and Craig Bellamy.

    It comes to nothing. Damien Delaney's spectacular volley goes spectacularly high and wide.

  273. 1435: 
    Fulham v West Brom (15:00 BST)

    BBC Sport's Tim Abraham reports: "Fulham boss Martin Jol makes three changes to his side as Philippe Senderos replaces Aaron Hughes in defence with the Northern Ireland international out with a thigh injury picked up on international duty. Pajtim Kasami comes in in place of on-loan Aston Villa striker Darren Bent who is ruled out with a hamstring injury while Kieran Richardson replaces John Arne Riise.

    "West Brom have handed debuts to new boys Victor Anichebe and Morgan Amalfitano but record signing Stephane Sessegnon is unavailable because the paperwork for his work permit following his transfer from Sunderland has been delayed."

  274. 1435: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace win their first corner of the match - in added time.

  275. 1433: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Crystal Palace

    Antonio Valencia feeds the ball to Wayne Rooney on the edge of the area. He then lays the ball to Javier Hernandez, who fluffs his lines.

  276. 1433: 
    Aston Villa v Newcastle (15:00 BST)

    BBC Sport's Becky Ashton reports: "There is no start for Aston Villa's deadline day signing Libor Kozak, who cost around £7m, but the striker is named on the bench for Paul Lambert's side. Antonio Luna returns from injury while Christian Benteke, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Andrea Weimann all start in attack.

    "Yohan Cabaye makes his first start of the season for Newcastle after Arsenal failed in a bid to take him to The Emirates, while loan signing Loic Remy also makes his first start after joining on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers."

    Yousif Hameed via mobile on 81111: "Fully expect Real Madrid to make a £100m bid for Januzaj in the next 5 to 10 years. Great player."

  278. 1430: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Crystal Palace

    Wayne Rooney is fed in by Belgian Adnan Januzaj, who has done well since he came on, but instead of squaring the ball the striker elects to lift it over Julian Speroni - unfortunately for the England forward his effort sails a few feet over the bar.

    Alexander Marsh: Ashley Young controversy aside, #MUFC devoid of any attacking ideas.

    Richard ‏@Eriatha: There has been nothing encouraging about this #MUFC performance.

    Chris ‏@waMutasa: 10 men are holding their own against the champions. No creativity from United in the final 3rd. Too ordinary. Unlike United.

    "He's worked hard today, as you would expect from Wayne Rooney because he loves his football, and this was a good free-kick. It dipped just inside the post, but if the wall had jumped they would have stopped it, but they didn't and it got over the wall to nestle in the bottom corner."

  282. 1424: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 2-0 Crystal Palace - Wayne Rooney (81 mins)

    Adnan Januzaj is fouled 25 yards from goal - slightly to the left of centre. Wayne Rooney, who looks likes an extra from 1980s TV musical series Fame, takes responsibility of the free-kick, curls his effort over the wall and into Julian Speroni's bottom right corner.

    Chris Waddle, BBC Radio 5 liveMan Utd 1-0 Crystal Palace

    "You can see that Palace are tiring, their concentration levels are falling and United are upping the tempo."

  286. 1420: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Man Utd 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Typical Robin van Persie 'twist-turn-and-shot' effort. Once again Palace keeper Julian Speroni is alert to the danger and blocks the Dutchman's strike at the near post.

  287. 1419: 
    Stoke v Man City (15:00 BST)

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips reports: "Stoke are unchanged from the team that beat West Ham 1-0 in their last game two weeks ago, meaning Kenwyne Jones keeps his place in attack. Deadline day signings Stephen Ireland and striker Marko Arnautovioc are both named on the bench.

    "Manchester City make six changes from the team that beat Hull City last time out. Summer signing Stevan Jovetic comes in to make his debut up front as a last-minute replacement for Sergio Aguero, who was originally named in the starting line-up. Jovetic partners Alvaro Negredo in attack while a much-changed midfield has Yaya Toure as the only man to retain his place. Samir Nasri, Jack Rodwell and James Milner all start."

  288. 1419: 
    Tottenham v Norwich (15:00 BST)

    BBC Sport's Luke Reddy reports: "Tottenham hand a debut to £11m signing Christian Eriksen following his move from Ajax. He replaces Etienne Capoue who was carried off in the 1-0 defeat at Arsenal. Gylfi Sigurdsson is the other change, he comes in for Nacer Chadli who is not named in the squad. Club record signing Erik Lamela remains on the bench.

    "Chris Hughton returns to his old club Tottenham and makes no changes to his Norwich City side which beat Southampton on their last outing. Summer signing Gary Hooper is on the bench. The former Celtic player trained with his new club for the first time this week as he continues to overcome a shin injury."

  289. 1418: 
    SUBSTITUTION FOR PALACE- Man Utd 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Winger Jimmy Kebe, signed from Reading in the window, comes on for Marouane Chamakh.

  290. 1417: 
    Man Utd 1-0 Crystal Palace

    The great hairstyles of the Premier League have a mini tussle near the sidelines. The Marouanes of Fellaini and Chamakh walk away after the brief tiff.

  291. 1417: 
    Sunderland v Arsenal (15:00 BST)

    BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan reports: "Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio makes five changes to the side that lost 3-1 to Crystal Palace before the international break. Ki Sung-yeung makes his debut after his loan move from Swansea, and Steven Fletcher is back in attack after a long lay-off and will be supported by Jozy Altidore. Fabio Borini is on the bench.

    "Arsenal's record signing Mesut Ozil gets his first taste of Premier League football as he comes in for the injured Santi Cazorla, who is not in the squad. Mathieu Flamini replaces Tomas Rosicky and Bacary Sagna captains the side and will play instead of centre-back Per Mertesacker."

    Marouane Fellaini

    Robin Cooke: Not sure if #MUFC fans are happier to see Fellaini coming on or Anderson off... the latter has been awful as usual.

    Dobzilla: 61st minute, cometh the man, cometh the hair.

    Alex Jeffs: What Palace could do with is a young player, who can play on the wing and link up with the striker. Oh, someone like Zaha.

  293. 1415: 
    Man Utd 1-0 Crystal Palace

    There are 20 minutes remaining. Palace have done well to keep the scoreline at 1-0.

  294. 1413: 
    CLOSE!- Man Utd 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Cripes! They've only been on the pitch a few moments. First, Adnan Januzaj zips in a low cross which Julian Speroni sprawls low to push away, and then Marouane Fellaini smacks a dipping shot which the Palace keeper is forced to dive low to save.

  295. 1412: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Tottenham v Norwich (15:00 BST)

    Christian Eriksen makes his Tottenham debut with Erik Lamela on the bench again. Norwich have striker Gary Hooper on the bench for the first time since his summer move from Celtic.
