  1. Post update

    Righto, I think that's all the reaction we have from this afternoon's games. All that's left for me to do is point you in the direction of our Leicester versus Chelsea coverage page, which is conveniently located right here.

    I'm back for tomorrow because there's a couple of games on - Everton against Manchester City and Manchester United versus Liverpool.

    Not bad, not bad at all. Hopefully see you then!

  2. 'I wanted a winner for Graham'

    Watford 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Watford

    Watford captain Troy Deeney: "Today was more about Graham Taylor and not the result. It would have been nice to get a winner and dedicate it to him.

    "You could see how emotional everyone was and it showed how much people care about him. Hopefully this game can be remembered for Graham and not the result.

    "The main thing is we didn't lose. There are no words that I can use to sum up how great a man he was and we just wish his family all the best at this difficult time."

  3. 'Sunderland have no hope'

    Sunderland 1-3 Stoke

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Chelsea striker on Final Score

    I don't like seeing players like Patrick van Aanholt having a go at his team-mates on the pitch - you air it in the dressing room.

    Sunderland have got no hope. Why would Jermain Defoe want to stay there?

  4. 'Three errors cost us'

    Sunderland 1-3 Stoke

    Sunderland boss David Moyes: "I am really disappointed with the result, we made three dreadful mistakes for the goals. Mistakes can come from anywhere and anytime, you have to make sure you don't make many of them but we made three today.

    "The players stuck at it and got the goal, we came close to a second with a couple of half chances but it wasn't to be.

    "Today was difficult because it was simply three individual errors that put us on the back foot. 

    "I might have left early when we went 3-0 down but what I will say is that we stuck at it, had a rally but just couldn't quite get it."

    Video caption: Burnley 1-0 Southampton: Claude Puel says defeat tough to accept

    Southampton manager Claude Puel says the 1-0 defeat to Burnley is tough to take after getting the better of the majority of the game.

  6. 'Our season could still go two ways'

    Hull 3-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth

    Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: "We got the perfect start and from that point we were looking to consolidate and then it slipped away. The second half was tough to watch.

    "The frustrating thing is we didn’t go for the game to try and put it to bed.

    "We’re disappointed with all three goals. We’re in the middle of the season and we have everything to play for, Our season could still go two ways."

    On conceding three goals for the eighth time in 10 games: "I’ve never had a scenario like this in my career when there appears to be a pattern emerging."

  7. 'Carroll's is brilliant but Giroud's is better'

    West Ham 3-0 Crystal Palace

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Chelsea striker on Final Score

    It was a brilliant goal and a definite contender for goal of the season.

    Who needs Dimitri Payet? West Ham should sell him, get the money and get players who want to play and move onwards and upwards.

    I still say Olivier Giroud's scorpion is better but it's a brilliant goal.

  8. 'Best goal I've scored'

    West Ham 3-0 Crystal Palace

    West Ham United

    West Ham striker Andy Carroll, speaking to Match of the Day, on his scissor kick goal: "I was determined to score today.  

    "Michail Antonio has played a great ball in just behind me. I hit one in training in the week and hit the post.

    "I thought I'd give it another go and it's gone in and I'm happy. It's been a while in the making – I've been trying for a couple of years. It's got to be the best goal I've scored."

  9. GOAL

    Leicester 0-1 Chelsea

    Who needs Diego Costa? Chelsea have taken the lead at Leicester through Marcos Alonso. 

    Marcos Alonso celebrates
  10. 'Huge for Hull'

    Hull City 3-1 Bournemouth

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Chelsea striker on Final Score

    It's an absolutely massive win for Hull, especially after going 1-0 down - they showed huge character.

    Marco Silva said they'd need a miracle and I still think they're going to struggle but what a big win.

  11. 'My players are smiling'

    Hull 3-1 Bournemouth

    Hull City

    Hull City head coach Marco Silva: "I’m happy because what I saw was a team with big spirit and big character. That’s important for me.  

    "The team last in the table lose a penalty after three minutes and they showed fantastic spirit [to come back].

    "After 10-15 minutes it was difficult, but we started to control the game and put the other team back. The first 25-30 mins of the second half it was all our team.  

    "I start to see [progress]. We have time next week to work more and the players now believe more in our ideas.

    "I saw my players smile in the dressing room and that’s important for me."  

    On the form of Abel Hernandez: "He’s an important player for us. We’ve played two games at home and he’s scored theee goals. That’s important to us and to him. Abel is an important player for us."

    Marco Silva
  12. 'Carroll is back to his best'

    West Ham 3-0 Crystal Palace

    Martin Keown

    Former Arsenal defender on Final Score

    It was really important for West Ham to put down a marker, with the team on the pitch, who want to play and want to move on from this Payet situation.

    Sam Allardyce coming back to his old club was probably an added motivation and Andy Carroll looks back to his best.

  13. 'I go a bit crazy when he tries that in training'

    West Ham 3-0 Crystal Palace

    West Ham United

    West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: "It was a very difficult game for us, a very difficult week. But the team showed everything we asked for - determination, character. The first half was nervous but the crowd were brilliant.

    "Second half we made a change at half-time and we were magnificent. We gave everything, scored three really good goals and were compact and solid.

    "I can only congratulate the boys, they were amazing. And I would like to thank the fans who were magnificent.

    "Andy Carroll has got it but he was unlucky in training when he was trying it - he was hitting the post or whatever. With his history of injuries I go a bit crazy when he does that in training because you don't want him to get hurt."

    On Dimitri Payet wanting to leave the club: "I said very openly what I said. It needed to be said and to be fair now I don't want to talk about it. I can talk for ages about the guys who play, they deserved it."

  14. 'Players must take responsibility not to make mistakes'

    Sunderland 1-3 Stoke

    Sunderland boss David Moyes: "The first 20 minutes or so was really poor. All our own doing, terrible mistakes for all three goals. 

    "The players need to take responsibility and stop making individual mistakes, but I didn't think our overall performance was that bad.

    "The fans left early because there is only one road out of here, not just because of the result. They actually leave when we are winning as well sometimes."

  15. The tribute was beautiful - Mazzarri

    Watford 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Watford

    Watford manager Walter Mazzarri: "In the second half we had six or seven very good chances and hit the post so we were unlucky but I’m happy with the performance.

    "In some of the games we were not lucky at all and today we were very unlucky, the important thing is to keep playing and the victory will come."

    On the tribute to former Hornets manager Graham Taylor, Mazzarri said: "It was beautiful, there were a lot of emotions, everyone was emotional.

    "We wanted to give this victory to this great person who passed away and that is the only thing we missed."

    Walter Mazzarri
  16. Post update

    Watford 0-0 Middlesbrough

    Middlesbrough

    Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka: "It was not the best game to watch, for us it was a good game and we showed once again we are a consistent team.

    "I would like to have had more chances but they are a strong team and we had to defend.

    "We will score goals, we have good players and we created chances but sometimes it is difficult if you are playing against a physical team. It is one more point and a game we have to learn from in the future.

    "As a coach until the 31st (of January) you are always expecting for something to happen, the aim is to finish the transfer market with a better squad than we have got at the moment."

  17. 'Andy has that in his locker'

    West Ham 3-0 Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace

    Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce: "We were the best team in the first half. But we couldn't score from two very good chances. You can't maker basic errors at a place like this. 

    "My problem is then the team holding their nerve and waiting for an opportunity because we know how nervous West Ham can be here, but we opened up too much.

    "It's a terrific finish from Andy Carroll and he's always had that in his locker. The volley was outstanding. But he was all on his own, stood in the box and we had three defenders doing nothing.

    "It looks like we haven't played very well today and of course we have for 70 minutes - 70 minutes is not enough."

  19. 'No positives for Swansea'

    Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Chelsea striker on Final Score

    How can Swansea take any encouragement from getting thumped 4-0? Who cares if they started well?

    The key for them is they need to get a couple of centre-halves as they currently don't have any leadership there or any defenders with a defensive instinct.

  20. 'We should have had a penalty'

    Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

    Swansea City

    Swansea boss Paul Clement: "It is very disappointing. The first half we were in the game and looked solid defensively, even though we did not do enough offensively. We got caught on the counter for the first goal.

    "We had a big claim for a penalty, looking back on it, it is a penalty. In the second half, we started poorly and then it was an uphill struggle after the first own goal. Arsenal showed how much quality they have offensively.

    "We could have had a penalty and then two deflections went against us. I did see some good things but you have to do it for 90 minutes at this level.

    "We have all got a difficult job on our hands and we have to work on the training field to get the basics right. We will have a better chance after that.

    "We were wasteful with the ball, the team defended well in general, but we did not do enough offensively.

    "It is not an eye opener, I know what this level is like. We have some good players and we are looking to do (business) soon. Martin Olsson and Tom Carroll are imminent and hopefully will go through without any problems.

    "We need to put in some decent performances and be ready for the games we need to win."
