    We leave you with a happy man this evening.

    Did you make that mug yourself Andy?

  3. No penalty but no appeal

    Leicester 0-0 Bournemouth

    Jamie Vardy fouled

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "[On Simon Francis' red card] I didn't think it was a foul from my angle, he definitely touched the ball. It was a great recovery tackle. It's not a foul, a penalty or a sending off.

    "It was a very even game before that point, a high tempo game and very high quality. We had some great chances in the first half but when we went down to 10 men we showed character and it's a great point for us.

    "We won't appeal the red card as it's a one-game ban and the FA Cup is coming up."

    Simon Francis is sent off
  4. Fizzing Foxes...

    Leicester 0-0 Bournemouth

    Champagns

    Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri: "We knew it was a difficult match and we started playing too late. Bournemouth moved the ball very quickly but in the second half we were much better. 

    "A draw is not OK, it is only one point, but it is OK as we have 40 points which was the goal. It's champagne for my players!

    "We hit the post, we missed a penalty and had some good chances. We have not scored for three games but we have had chances. Sometimes everything is right but now some things are wrong. The performance was good, a fantastic effort."

  6. Man of the Match - Artur Boruc

    Leicester 0-0 Bournemouth

    Artur Boruc saves

    Boruc saved the penalty and denied Mahrez again late on. Though none of his saves were stellar he produced catch after catch to take the pressure off his side.

  7. Player reaction

  8. Brilliant Cook

    Leicester 0-0 Bournemouth

    Steve Cook clearances

    Steve Cook excelled in Bournemouth's back four, making 15 clearances in all, eight more than anyone else on the pitch.

  9. Two on target - not good enough

    Leicester 0-0 Bournemouth

    Leicester shots

    Leicester had two shots (left) - including their penalty - on target, with 12 off target and two blocked.

  10. It hurts...

    Leicester 0-0 Bournemouth

    Wes Morgan

  11. Not a prayer of beating them

    Leicester 0-0 Bournemouth

    Madonna

     Bournemouth have not beaten Leicester since March 1989 when Madonna topped the charts with 'Like a Prayer'.  

  12. Team news

    Leicester 0-0 Bournemouth

    Leicester

    Leicester reverted to a 4-4-2 system having played with just one striker in their goalless draw with Manchester City. That means there was a place for Leonardo Ulloa as Gokhan Inler drops to the bench.

    Jamie Vardy shook off a virus to be fit while there is just the one change for Bournemouth as Marc Pugh comes in for Junior Stanislas.

  17. Manager reaction - Ronald Koeman

    Norwich 1-0 Southampton

    "I'm angry about the second yellow card from Victor because a player with his experience needs to know if you already have a yellow in a game, that you cannot do that tackle in that position on the pitch.

    "But it's so unnecessary what happened because with 11 against 11, still we are stronger than we showed here and we know we are in a difficult situation."

  19. Manager reaction - Alex Neil

    "I'm over the moon with the boys in particular, because when you are going through difficult spells, there have been questions posed about them and me - and the best way to deal with it is to win games. 

    "We've won some crucial games now and kept two clean sheets as well, so there are a lot of positives to take."

  20. Man of the match

    Norwich 1-0 Southampton

    Alex Tettey provided one of the few moments of high quality to seal the win for Norwich, and was a danger to Southampton throughout.

    Norwich 1-0 Southampton

    Ronald Koeman on Sadio Mane
  24. Missing Mane

    Norwich 1-0 Southampton

    Saints were quick off the mark to explain why Sadio Mane was out of the team.

    Sadio Mane tweet

    There was little sympathy from Garth Crooks on Final Score...

    “If you’ve got rules, then you’ve got to keep to them. But it’s a big call for Ronald Koeman to leave out Sadio Mane. If he wins, fine. If he doesn’t, you’re going to get players saying: ‘Gaffer, are you sure about that?’ 

    “I was late for a coach when I was at Charlton, and the only way I could get round it was to jump in my car and get to the ground before the team got there.”

    But, it's a game of opinions, and Chris Sutton felt differently...

    "You want your best players to be playing. Imagine the boost for Norwich seeing him only on the bench. Neil Lennon [at Celtic] was once 45 minutes late and Martin O'Neill still played him."

  25. Team news

    Norwich 1-0 Southampton

    Southampton's Sadio Mane was on the naughty step for the game at Norwich. 

    The Senegal winger was dropped to the Southampton bench after turning up late for a team meeting. Manager Ronald Koeman didn't pull his punches.

    "He was in the team, but he was too late in the meeting," he said. "We have rules in the team."  

    Oriol Romeu was also out due to suspension, with Jordy Clasie and James Ward-Prowse coming in.

    Southampton: Stekelenburg, Martina, Fonte, van Dijk, Bertrand, Clasie, Steven Davis, Ward-Prowse, Wanyama, Tadic, Long. 

    Subs: Yoshida, Mane, Reed, Ramirez, Gazzaniga, Targett, Seager.

    Southampton team

    Norwich, meanwhile, made only one change with Gary O'Neil in for Graham Dorrans.

    Norwich: Rudd, Bennett, Martin, Bassong, Brady, Howson, Tettey, O'Neil, Redmond, Hoolahan, Mbokani. 

    Subs: Whittaker, Jerome, Dorrans, Mulumbu, Olsson, Odjidja, Ruddy.

  27. Man of the match - Jonny Evans

    West Brom 2-1 Stoke

    Jonny Evans subdued a previously rampant Stoke attack and was a threat going forward throughout, nearly scoring in the first half from a corner and having a penalty shout for a push in the back by Geoff Cameron.

    Evans' 93rd-minute winner - his first goal for the Baggies - was the perfect ending and well deserved for player and team.

  28. Manager reaction

    West Brom 2-1 Stoke

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes: "I don't think it was a high-quality game - we didn't play particularly well and I didn't think West Brom played particularly well.

    "Geoff [Cameron] got caught late by the lad [Claudio] Yacob, he's just reacted to it and pushed the guy. We're not too happy with the reaction of the West Brom player. I think he went down really easily with the intention of maybe getting Geoff sent off, which he succeeded in doing.

    "We'll look again tomorrow and we'll decide whether or not we appeal. At the moment, having seen it, that is probably what we will do."

  29. Manager reaction

    West Brom 2-1 Stoke

    West Brom boss Tony Pulis: "Stoke have been flying and are a real high-quality team and we are very pleased to win.

    "The equaliser would have given them momentum but the lad being sent off means it goes back our way.

    "I was really pleased with the lads' effort and commitment."

  30. Post update

  31. Stoke see red - again

    West Brom 2-1 Stoke

    Geoff Cameron's red card, straight after Stoke's 81st-minute equaliser, allowed West Brom to immediately regain momentum and arguably paved the way for their stoppage-time winner.

    Geoff Cameron sent off v West Brom

    You'd think they'd learn after the reverse fixture in August - won 1-0 by West Brom - that saw Ibrahim Afellay sent off in the 25th minute...

    ...and Charlie Adam follow him to the dressing room six minutes later. Stoke have now had four men sent off this season - they jointly top the expulsion chart with West Ham.

    Rickie Lambert and Craig Gardner replaced them with striker Saido Berahino remaining on the bench.

    "It was not enough from my team today. The decisive moments were there, but we were not there 100%.

    "We played a really good game - especially in the second half. Of course Liverpool had their moments because they are a good passing team but we defended really well as a team."

  55. Man of the match

    Man Utd 2-1 Swansea

    Ashley Young

    Ashley Young, freed to attack down Manchester United's right flank, made ten crosses - more than twice as many as any other player.

    One of his deliveries was headed in by Anthony Martial for United's opener and his influential performance - curtailed by stiffness on 75 minutes - earned him BBC Sport's man of the match gong.

  56. "I wish I'd asked him to go up earlier"

    Alan Curtis

    Swansea caretaker Alan Curtis: "Funnily enough, Lukasz Fabianski had asked a couple of minutes earlier to go up for a similar situation. I told him to stay back. I wish I'd asked him to go up earlier.

    "We had to get back into the game. We were comfortable with the midfield diamond when it was 0-0, but once we went behind, we had to change things, so we put two wingers on to get back into it. 

    "We grew into the game after that, and we were unlucky not to get something."

  57. "We played a very risky system"

    Man Utd 2-1 Swansea

    Manchester United

    Louis van Gaal

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal: "I am very happy for the players because they had to play under big pressure and now we have won. We are still near the top of the league and the gap is less. So that's football.

    "That's a season. A season takes eight months or something like that and not one month. 

    "I think we played a very risky system against Swansea because they had a shape with four midfielders in a diamond.

     "I hope this is a fantastic starting point for us in the New Year and we can continue against Sheffield United." 

  58. Fabianski goes close late on

    Newcastle manager Steve McClaren:

    "The players can't believe it, we controlled and dominated the game after the first 10 minutes.

    "We asked for a performance and the players gave it, but we conceded one soft goal and lost the game. You can't fault the performance, we just have to be more ruthless at both ends.

    "We caused them so many problems and controlled them at the back and we're bewildered how we have not got anything.

    "In the last three games we have lost 1-0 against Everton in the last minute, 1-0 to West Brom in the last 10 minutes and this one. The spirit is tremendous and I can't fault them, I'm just really disappointed."

  72. 'We were not at our best today'

    Arsenal 1-0 Newcastle

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger:

    "It was hard work, but we prepared ourselves mentally. We were not at our best but we had to dig deep and we can do that when needed.

    "If you are down there then those are the matches you lose but they will not stay down there - they are a good team.

    "It was about solidarity, tired legs and taking a chance from a set piece. We were not at our best today, but over Christmas in four games we took nine points so we can look back and say we did 75% of our job as we lost at Southampton."

    Asked if his side would be signing anyone in the transfer window, Wenger replied: "Imminent, no, but we will look."

    The Magpies have looked a threat in attack in their last three outings, but Steve McClaren's forwards have been misfiring terribly. From their 32 efforts on goal, they have only managed to find the target once. Newcastle have only scored 19 times this season - the third lowest total in the league.

    Does Magpies' owner Mike Ashley, who spent north of £60m in the summer, have any money left in the kitty?

    Aston Villa manager Remi Garde told BBC Match of the Day: "I'm going to try [to sign players]. In life and football you have to believe - if you don't you have no chance. But it's more and more difficult. 

    "But every season in every league, a side can keep losing and suddenly win four, five or six in a row. But for that probably we will need to bring in one, two or three new players. 

    "Today I didn't see a side who didn't give everything they could. When you concede so many goals it's difficult to win games. You cannot be positive when you lose. I'm not here to lose - I'm here to try to make the team win."

    Sunderland 3-1 Aston Villa

    Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce told BBC Match of the Day: "I was very pleased with everyone holding their nerve, fans included. When Villa scored we could have gone under. But we kept it tight at the back.

    "You need anxiety to play football but if it goes too far into fear you can lose your nerve. When you're confident, things come naturally. But when you want to take an extra touch or an extra second to pass, with that fear, you give the ball away. The only way to dismiss that fear is to win games. 

    "Thank god for Jermain Defoe and his finishing qualities. He turned the game back in our favour."

    City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "I've always said this team has character, we never give up.

    "I think we were unlucky to be losing the game. It wasn't a corner and then it was an own goal. But we kept our minds and made some changes, always thinking we are able to turn the corner - and we did.

    "It was a very close game and tough for both teams but if you see the statistics we deserved to win, we had more shots on target and possession."

    Ok, it may not be as important as THAT goal, but it could be a big moment.

    • Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour party
    • A 5p charge for plastic bags was introduced
    • And we sent a Stoke City fan into space (no, he wasn't chasing a long ball from the old days)

  111. Don't forget the joker

    And Match of the Day begins with a little bit of Motorhead in honour of the band's recently departed lead singer Lemmy - a man who spent three decades in a state of permanent inebriation.

    He said that his band's music was so loud "that if we move in next door to you, your lawn will die".

    Hello and happy new year.

    Welcome to Match of the Day social, where we will bring you all the stats, social media reaction and analysis to accompany Match of the Day on BBC One.

    It wasn't looking a cracker at 15:45 GMT today - with one goal scored in the afternoon matches - but don't worry it got better, a lot better.

    Enjoy.

  121. Had enough of 2016 yet?

    How's your 2016 been so far?

    Football fans from Manchester are probably quite content.

    Leicester supporters might be fearing they are about to wake up.

    While, for Aston Villa fans, things can only get better. Can't they?
