  1. Bye for now

    Right, that is us all done and dusted on this live text.

    Why not head over to Manchester City's visit to Southampton? Still scoreless there as we creep towards half-time.

    And tomorrow we will have all the live text and radio commentary as league leaders Chelsea face former manager Jose Mourinho's Manchester United side/

    Catch you later...

  2. 'No one complained then'

    Crystal Palace 2-2 Leicester

    Crystal Palace


    Christian Benteke, speaking to BBC Sport: "For my goal, I don't think it was a foul because I was focused on the ball.

    "I scored a similar goal against Middlesbrough and no-one complained then."

  3. 'Now the squad are playing good football'

    Watford 1-0 Swansea


    Walter Mazzarri

    Walter Mazzarri speaking to BBC Sport:

    "I want to congratulate the guys who played today. We were in a desperate situation in defence but everyone played a great game.

    "We knew it was going to be a very tough game. We could have killed the game off but we didn't and we had to suffer until the end.

    "It is normal that when a new manager comes, he has to give his identity to the team and it takes a bit of time. Now the squad are playing good football.

    "Until the numbers say we are safe, we are not. I don't want my players to relax and I want to play with the same formation in order to get ready for next season."

  4. 'A point gained or a point lost?'

    Crystal Palace 2-2 Leicester

    Leicester City

    Craig Shakespeare

    Craig Shakespeare, speaking to BBC Sport: "I'm not sure if it's a point gained or two lost.

    "There is a tinge of disappointment as just needed to manage the game better after our second goal.

    "For their second I've seen them given as a free-kick.

    "Benteke is riding on Benalouane's back but there's nothing we can do about it now as the referee has given it.

    "It was pleasing in the second half that we played a bit more football than we played in the first half."

  5. 'Shaqiri’s goal was the icing on the cake'

    Stoke City 3-1 Hull City

    Stoke City

    Mark Hughes

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes: "It was a big three points. An important three points. We’ve come through a period that was arguably our most testing of the season in terms of fixtures.

    "For the most part this season we’ve picked up points against the teams below us and that’s what we’ve done today.

    We eventually needed to make a change to get a bit more threat and they helped. Jon Walters plonked it on Crouch’s head and the game’s done from my point of view.

    Shaquiri’s goal  was the icing on the cake. 

    "As a consequence of winning today I think we can probably express ourselves a bit more in the remaining games."

  6. 'We only played played 80 minutes'

    Stoke City 3-1 Hull City

    Hull City

    Marco Silva

    Hull boss Marco Silva: "I’m not happy with our performance in general. We need to do more. We need to improve. At this level we need to start strong and play 90 minutes, not 80 minutes.

    "Our team only played 80 minutes because the first 10 we didn’t play. We can’t start the game like we started.

    "We reacted well. We controlled the last 30 mins of the first half. The second half we reacted, started strong, scored the goal. When you have chances like we had in the game, we have to score.

    "Only our team can change the situation. Five more games, the next game is a chance for more points."

  7. Clement rues Swans' 'missed opportunity'

    Video content

    Video caption: Clement rues Swans 'missed opportunity'

    Swansea manager Paul Clement describes his side's 1-0 Premier League defeat at Watford as "a missed opportunity" as they miss the opportunity to escape the bottom three.

  8. 'We hope the football gods shine on us'

    Sunderland 2-2 West Ham


    David Moyes

    Sunderland manager David Moyes: "I thought the boys played really well today, they showed great character to come back. We didn't deserve to go a goal down. 

    "Wahbi (Khazri) played well, scored a good goal and his general play was good. 

     "We lost our markers (for the second goal). We hardly conceded any corners and in the build-up there was a free-kick I wasn't sure about. 

    "I was pleased, but not with the corner kick. We didn't defend it as well as we should have done.

    "We need to win games and today we've got to take three points. It wasn't for the want of trying.

    "We'll keep believing while we're in with a chance, somewhere along the line hope the football gods will shine on us."

    On defender Billy Jones, who was stretchered off: "The medical team tell me his head hit the ground and he lost consciousness, a bit of concussion. We've sent him to hospital, but I'm sure he'll be OK." 

  9. 'We definitely went for it'

    Crystal Palace 2-2 Leicester

    Leicester City

    Jamie Vardy

    Jamie Vardy, speaking to BBC Sport: "We're a bit gutted with the result in the end - if we'd held on to the two-goal lead for a bit longer, we'd have been fine.

    "For their second goal I thought Christian Benteke used Yohan Benalouane as a step-ladder so you'd have thought it would be blown for a free-kick.

    "With the side we put out today, we definitely went for it so to get a goal was fantastic but I would've preferred the three points with it."

  10. Bottom of the table

    Bottom of the table

    Stoke, Manchester United, Everton, Sunderland and West Brom are Swansea's last five opponents.


  11. Post update

    Watford 1-0 Swansea

    Swansea City

    Paul Clement

    Paul Clement speaking to BBC Sport: "I think we did enough defensively. The goal has come for an individual error and Alfie (Mawson) knew that straight away. It's a big mistake.

    "Offensively we got the ball into some good areas but we were missing a clinical edge in the final third. That for me was the difference.

    "Hull not winning today keeps things the same but for me it's a missed opportunity not to get a point today.

    "We had over 45 minutes to try and get out of that situation but we couldn't get the breakthrough.

    "The next game is a must-win game for us. It's the biggest game the club has had in years.

    "We will probably need three wins out of the last five to stay up. And I'm not even sure that would be enough."

  12. 'We fancied our chances today'

    Stoke City 3-1 Hull City

    Hull City

    Harry Maguire

    Hull goalscorer Harry Maguire: "We feel disappointed in there. We started sloppy and deserved to be a goal behind. But we were the dominant team in the last 20 minutes of the first half and the first 20 minutes of the second and we got a goal that we deserved.

    "But they made two changes and Crouch got a great goal and Shaqiri has finished the game off with a great strike. 

    "It was end to end and today was down to who took their chances. It’s not been a bad performance but we’ve got to take the positives now. 

    "Today was a massive game in terms of dragging people into [the relegation fight]. It’s a disappointing result. We fancied our chances today."

  13. 'Barkley handled the off-the-field distractions'

    Everton 1-1 Burnley

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Everton & West Brom winger on Final Score

    Ross Barkley & Ronald Koeman

    I think Ross Barkley handled today's pressure really well. He cleared the ball off the line at one point and generally succeeded in having an influence on the game. His manager Ronald Koeman will be impressed with how he's handled the off-the-field distractions this week.

  14. "That wouldn't have happened when I first arrived"

    Crystal Palace 2-2 Leicester

    Crystal Palace

    Sam Allardyce

    Sam Allardyce, speaking to BBC Sport: "Today's point feels like a win, it's a tremendous fight back from the players and that wouldn't have happened when I first arrived - it just shows the change of mood of the players.

    "We've got 35 points now and it's been a fantastic run of results.

    "I spend a bit of time boring the players with getting the basics right but it's the basis of result - for those Leicester goals we didn't get them right although Jamie Vardy took his goal brilliantly."

  15. 'We have an unfinished job'

    Sunderland 2-2 West Ham

    West Ham United

    Slaven Bilic

    West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: "We are disappointed to concede a late goal. It was a fair result. it is a point, we wanted three and we were close. 

    "They were throwing long balls in, putting the bodies in, from one of those situations they score the goal. 

    "We have four points from the last two games, we have an unfinished job to do. We have to pick up more points to be safe."

  16. 'It could come down to the goal difference'

    Watford 1-0 Swansea City

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Everton & West Brom winger on Final Score

    In the relegation zone, it could come down to the goal difference at the end of the season. We know how few goals Hull score, and while Swansea did well in the first half today they faded badly in the second. 

    Current goal difference stats.

    16. Bournemouth -18

    17. Hull -33

    18 Swansea -31

    19. Boro -15

    20. Sunderland -32

  17. 'It's a tough one to take'

    Everton 3-1 Burnley


    Sean Dyche

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche: "It's a tough one to take, I thought we were good today. We had two cleared off the line and two good chances. We've been punished by a bobbly first goal, a bobbly second one and then a great finish from a top striker. It's a good performance on the road that suggests we will get there in the end.

    "I was pleased with the mentality of the players. Everton are in top form and we enhanced the game with our plan today. There's life in performances like that. We've got to take in on now. We do need a margin of luck.

    "I don't think Sam Vokes is a bad injury but we'll see. It'll take a couple of days to settle down."

  18. 'We're bitterly disappointed'

    Sunderland 2-2 West Ham

    West Ham United

    James Collins

    West Ham goalscorer James Collins: "We came looking for the three points and were pretty comfortable, but to go in front and concede we were disappointed. 

    "We invited a bit too much pressure on ourselves. We're bitterly disappointed. Any late goal is frustrating."

  19. 'Hull will be another Cup final'

    Etienne Capoue

    Watford goal scorer Etienne Capoue:

    "It was a type of final today. But we did it today in a very tough game.

    "I pressed him (Alfie Mawson) and I won my challenge. I had to finish and I did it. Our defence today did very well. We need to look forward now - Hull City will be another final."

  20. Get involved


    David Moyes

    Craig Fullarton: I disagree with Leon Osman (16:41). These are the players Moyes has picked and/or signed. He's had enough time to make the squad his own. 

    David Simpson: A draw is nowhere near enough for Sunderland. But maybe, just maybe, it's a catalyst for a run to end the season.
