    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    The Times: "A week on from their 3-0 defeat to Sunderland, their local rivals, Newcastle remain in the bottom three and another game, another inviting opportunity, has elapsed. They are still waiting for the great leap forward at St James’ Park."

    Independent: "The plaudits here were for an Englishman. That felt a bit unique, given the rarity of English players involved in games in these parts. There were only three on the field – Glen Johnson, Ryan Shawcross and Jack Butland – but the day belonged to the latter."

    Daily Star: "Jack Butland was the hero as Stoke left Newcastle with a hard-earned point as the Magpies once again failed to make the most of their chances."

    Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren speaking to BBC Sport: "Four great saves from Jack Butland denied us a win and got Stoke a point. 

    "He was unbelievable and the difference between us and three points."

    He added: "We are building, growing and progressing - the last five games - we are getting there. 

    "There were lost of positives and the only disappointment is not getting the three points."

    Stoke manager Mark Hughes speaking to BBC Sport: "We were a bit frustrated in the first half. We had plenty of possession around their area but didn't look like we wanted to shoot.

    "Their keeper has made a great save from Jon Walters.

    "As the away team you are going to give away a couple of chances and when we did Jack Butland saved.

    "He is doing exceptionally well. Jack is a very mature individual and I think that helps him."

    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    BBC Sport's Mandeep Sanghera picked Stoke keeper Jack Butland as man of the match at St James' Park. The England keeper has been earning plenty of plaudits so far this season and showed why with a string of impressive saves to earn his side a point against the Magpies.

    His best came when he tipped a Jamaal Lascelles header over the crossbar.

    The Guardian: "Louis van Gaal's Manchester United team continue to sap the morale of onlookers and this was another grinding, uninspired performance."

    Daily Mail: "No invention. No guile. No imagination. It was a performance that will only serve to justify assertions, Paul Scholes' included, that this is one of the most humdrum United outfits in recent memory."

    Daily Telegraph: "Goalless draws sap a club’s spirit. They kill momentum. They test the patience of fans. And while United remain a top-four side, the travelling support made their feelings apparent. “We’re Man United,” they sang, “we want to attack.”

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal: "We did not keep the ball. That's a very important factor and because of that we didn't create too many chances. I have to say I can't complain about the result.

    "[Not scoring for a third consecutive game] is a big concern but I already said that after the second match, especially against Middlesbrough, because we created many chances but did not finish. Today we didn't create so many chances so it's more difficult. When you don't keep the ball you can't create chances."

  20. Martial most effective on left?

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Man Utd

    BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan pondered the selection of Anthony Martial on the left wing, with Wayne Rooney preferred as the lone striker.

    "There was no doubt who United were trying to get the ball to in the first half. So it begs the question, why not stick him down the middle? I guess, at least it means United are getting in behind the Palace defence on one flank."

    The Guardian: "West Ham have taken maximum points from their games against Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea, but they also have one of a possible nine against Bournemouth, Norwich and now Watford."

    Daily Express: "Andy Carroll’s personal Halloween nightmare at Vicarage Road carried on when he scuffed a shot wide and then fell over his own feet when he had a simple tap-in after sub Enner Valencia’s shot came back off the woodwork."

    Daily Telegraph: "Watford have struggled to score this season but they boast one of the league’s meanest defences. Here, their obduracy frustrated Bilic’s side."

    "It's been important to change the mentality when you come in from a lower division, to win gives you the respect of the other teams."

Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri promised the Italian delicacy for his whole squad after they finally kept a clean sheet last weekend, but will not follow suit after their 3-2 win at the Hawthorns."

    Express and Star: "West Brom boss Tony Pulis is going to speak to referees' chief Mike Riley about today's defeat at home to Leicester City. The Baggies had, at least, two strong penalty shouts against Robert Huth waved away during the game by referee Anthony Taylor."

    "But the referee should have given us a penalty and sent their man off. It shouldn't happen at this level - the standard of refereeing should be better.

    "[Referees' chief] Mike Riley should be on the phone asking why we weren't given two penalties.

    The Guardian: "Wenger’s team were beaten twice by Swansea last season and gaining vengeance, especially amid an injury crisis, is the sort of achievement that gives credence to suggestions that Arsenal may finally have the gumption to become champions once again."  

    Daily Mail: "There were times here when Arsene Wenger simply could not help but smile. This was not his team at their best because, quite simply, they still looked vulnerable to silly lapses of thought.

    "But this is also a side that has developed that beautiful knack of burying their shortcomings underneath piles of wins."

    Independent: "The belief that English goalkeepers are the best in the world is one that did not survive the Winter of Discontent, let alone the formation of the Premier League. However, this was not an afternoon that did much for their reputation."

    Telegraph: "The last time Joe Hart celebrated a goal quite so wildly was when Sergio Aguero settled the 2011-12 title race with the last kick of the season, but as Yaya Toure secured victory for Manchester City from the penalty spot, Hart was hugging team-mates as though another championship had just been secured."

    Mirror: "As it stands, the jury remains out on Bony. The reaction of City fans to Bony, berating him for his shortcomings, suggests they are losing patience with the former Swansea man."

    Minutes after Joe Hart dropped the ball at the feet of the Cameron Jerome, Norwich's John Ruddy decided he'd make his fellow keeper feel a bit better by going walkabout and leaving the goal open. That led to Russell Martin handling Raheem Sterling's shot.

    It was an error that handed Man City a victory from a game that they laboured in for long periods.

    Daily Mail: "The Portuguese did not deliver a convincing appraisal of his side’s failures or why he remains the man for the job - instead saying as little as possible. Mourinho refused to answer 12 questions on television, constantly replying ‘I have nothing to say’ and said ‘no’ when later asked if he had managed for the final time at Stamford Bridge."

    Firmino was impressive and more accurate with the ball than any player who started the game. He may need to toughen up though - of the 25 duels he contested, he only came out on top in 28%.

  79. Chelsea out-worked

    Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool

    Emre Can

    A simple stat which perhaps illustrates work ethic, pressing, maybe even desire. Liverpool ran 115km as a team today, Chelsea, just 107km.

    That's a big difference and may be explainable if Chelsea had more of the ball but the fact is they didn't, Liverpool enjoyed 57% of the possession.

  80. Man of the Match

    Philippe Coutinho may not have been able to claim the match ball but this was the first time he managed two goals in a Premier League game since moving to English football.
