  1. Goodbye

    There we have it for another Saturday.

    Premier League leaders Liverpool drop points which means they are now on level points with Manchester City, as well as having the same goal difference. The edge stay in front on goals scored.

    At the other end, Sunderland eased past Hull to move off the bottom, sending Swansea into last place, with Bob Bradley still looking for his first win.

    We'll be back tomorrow Middlesbrough host Chelsea...who could go top. Exciting!

    Until then.

  2. 'A difficult day'

    Southampton 0-0 Liverpool


    Southampton manager Claude Puel: “I think it was a good performance today. We played against a very good team with good players. It was difficult to play against them because they work very well with a lot of the ball. So it was important to keep discipline to get a point.

    “Of course, we want to have more possession because we like control of the game, but it is difficult and so that was a good point for us.

    “Difficult to work with group. We play every few days in different competitions. We have 15 international players and it is difficult to work without these players during the break. However, what we showed was a good spirit, attitude and discipline. We tried to play good football but it was difficult against this team."

  3. 'Not the best day in our life'

    Southampton 0-0 Liverpool


    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp told BBC Sport: "I’m quite happy with the second half. We knew it would be difficult today. They are an organised side. The first half was not bad, but it was not enough. It was good preparation for the second half because we were able to make a few changes in the way we played. We did much better and had chances and moments but did not score.

    “Even then you need to fight for draw and that is what we did. We did not lose control which is easy to do after dominating. The attitude was really good. We could have won the game, but in the end I am happy with performance. It was an away game at Southampton and a good performance – with a clean sheet. So yes, happy.”

    "(The table is tight) not only for us. That is good. All teams are the same. This league is tough and we are here because of this and we like it.

    “Usually you lose in game like this, because body language is such you end doing something different and giving one chance away and they score.  When you are ready for work then you deserve the minimum of a draw. Not the best day in our life, but for sure not the worst.”

  4. 'His team-mates love him'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Man City

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "I am so happy for Yaya Toure, he is a really nice guy. His weight is perfect now, there are no doubts about his quality. At the beginning we did not count on him, he would not be here, but he can play many positions. I am so happy for him and his family. We have one more man to help us achieve our targets.

    "The last month and a half he was amazing in training, his behaviour is absolutely everything. His team mates love him. He is going to help us to rotate the team, we need that.

    "Kompany has a problem with his head, he could not see well. You have to be careful."

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Manchester City

    Crystal Palace

    More from Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: "We gifted them two goals really and you can't do that. We had a good psychology and we could have had something out of the game.

    "We are fighting, we showed that. Our recent run is really poor but the performances don't warrant that. We should be in the top three for set-pieces and we are probably in the bottom three."

  7. Troubling times for Palace

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Man City

    Palace are skirting dangerously close to the relegation zone at the moment. Only a point separates them from 18th-placed Hull, who were beaten today at 19th-placed Sunderland (themselves now just three points behind Palace.

    The Eagles have now gone 17 league games without keeping a clean sheet in the Premier League, last doing so against Everton in April.

    It's enough to make Alan Pardew adopt this look...

  8. 'We are under pressure'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Man City

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: "It was a tough result for us. For long periods we were very strong, very defensively sound. They subdued us a bit with world class defenders but we still caused them problems.

    "The first goal is three errors and the second goal, we didn't get a message on to the pitch that we wanted. Little mistakes are costing us massively at the moment.

    "Our midfield had the edge today. Yaya Toure has got two goals but Cabaye and Puncheon were top class.

    "We deserved something from the game but you can't keep saying that. We need to get points. We have got games coming up that we have more chance of winning but we are under pressure. We needed a result today to give us a lift."

  9. 'We played the way I like'

    Watford 2-1 Leicester


    Watford manager Walter Mazzarri told BBC Sport: "We got the win and I'm very happy. We played the football that I like my team to play and this time we were good enough to score.

    "The way Roberto Pereyra played, not just the goal he scored, he ran the whole game and I am very happy with him.

    "It was not easy, we know they are a good team. It was our fault with the penalty, in the last 15 or 20 minutes Leicester pressed a lot and we had to concentrate."

  10. 'Our performance was good, I'm positive'

    Watford 2-1 Leicester

    Leicester City

    Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri tells BBC Sport: "I said to my players 'well done' as they tried to do everything. At the beginning we were losing 2-0, but we got back in the match.

    "Of course Watford defended very well. We tried to do our best, the second half was intense but we did not created good chances.

    "Their two goals made the match. Our performance was good, the spirit was good and I am positive. When you play with this spirit, I'm positive."

  11. 'Making up for lost time'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Man City

    Match of the Day commentator at Selhurst Park

    It has been a long standoff between Yaya and Pep, with his agent in the middle of it. It's gone on for three months but he was determined to make up for it.

    Toure almost won the title here a few years ago and he was at it again.

  12. 'I knew one day they would need me'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Man City

    Manchester City

    Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure to MOTD: "I have been lucky. Today was very tough. We know what we have to do to win this league, sometimes you have to fight."

    You can blow your own trumpet today - you were excellent! "Thank you, it is very kind of you. I was delighted to play today, it was difficult for me. I am very happy to be playing football, my team-mates are very important to me."

    You were clapped back into the dressing room by the rest of the squad "They have always been brilliant with me, always supportive. I always want to be there to help them. I am professional, I always want to improve my game. I was prepared mentally and I knew that one day my manager would need me. You must always stay professional."

  13. Just the 694-mile round trip

  14. What else?

    Tottenham v West Ham (17:30 GMT)

    So, Harry Winks start for Tottenham today for the first time in the Premier League. Great name. He sounds like he should have a pencil moustache and sell black market goods during World War II, not play right-wing for Spurs.

    Anyway, if you want to follow that game you can do so here.

  15. 'I just want to help the team'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Man City

    Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure: "We knew sometimes we need to fight to win games and this was tough. Crystal Palace are in trouble and they needed a performance in front of their fans. I am really happy with the lads.

    "For me, to be honest, I just want to help the team. City are always involved in the title race and we will keep it going. 

    "Maybe my prediction is it will be like 2014. It will go to the end, but we have quality players who can score at any moment."

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Man City

    How many high fives and head rubs can one man receive? Yaya is getting the royal treatment from his team-mates as he leaves the field. Worth the wait.
