Chelsea may be clear at the top, but it's incredibly close elsewhere

:00:41.:00:45.

Coming up, we'll see teams competing for the top four, and those involved

:00:46.:00:50.

in the tightest of scraps to stay up.

:00:51.:00:52.

Danny Murphy and Ian Wright have sampled life at

:00:53.:00:54.

We begin with Liverpool against Tottenham,

:00:55.:01:01.

who started the day fifth and second respectively.

:01:02.:01:03.

Your commentator at Anfield was Guy Mowbray.

:01:04.:01:08.

COMMENTATOR: When the New Year began, Liverpool were second, seven

:01:09.:01:17.

points clear of Tottenham in fifth. Just six weeks later, the table has

:01:18.:01:21.

turned with Spurs having won 11 more points than their hosts in 2017.

:01:22.:01:26.

Three more went begging for Liverpool at Hull last week, and

:01:27.:01:30.

with Dejan Lovren still injured, just one change to the team with

:01:31.:01:34.

Wijnaldum replacing Emre Can. Adam Lallana is fit after a slight

:01:35.:01:38.

Achilles problem and faith has been kept with Mignolet in goal. Spurs

:01:39.:01:43.

unchanged with Ben Davies again filling in for the injured Danny

:01:44.:01:50.

Rose at left-back in the same 11 that did just enough to beat

:01:51.:01:52.

Middlesbrough. A Harry Kane penalty won it, his seventh goal in seven

:01:53.:01:56.

games, and he's played two, scored two at Anfield so far in his career.

:01:57.:02:01.

It's a bitterly cold evening at Anfield. The sun has gone. You get

:02:02.:02:07.

the feeling this will be a game that will have plenty in it to keep us

:02:08.:02:12.

all warm. The smiles have gone from Liverpool in recent weeks, as has

:02:13.:02:17.

their habit of winning football matches, especially here, five home

:02:18.:02:21.

matches without a victory for the first time since going six without

:02:22.:02:30.

success in October 2012. Eriksen muscled out of it. Great work by

:02:31.:02:32.

Wijnaldum. Coutinho gets lucky. Mane through the middle and Firmino

:02:33.:02:44.

further left. Here's Firmino... The touch took it away from goal but

:02:45.:02:48.

he's still scrapping. Coutinho, blocked by Alderweireld.

:02:49.:02:53.

Coutinho couldn't trick his way past Walker. Dembele, side-by-side with

:02:54.:03:04.

Firmino, just barring his way to goal and the move broke down with

:03:05.:03:09.

that first touch of Roberto Firmino. It came to Dele Alli.

:03:10.:03:15.

Wijnaldum won it back first. Alderweireld will tidy up by

:03:16.:03:24.

steering it safely back to Hugo Lloris.

:03:25.:03:33.

Incomes Lallana to pitch the ball. Firmino to Wijnaldum. Through two

:03:34.:03:41.

Mane, who stays ahead of Davies, and scores! Sadio Mane, reaches double

:03:42.:03:52.

figures of goals for the season. Liverpool boss back high-intensity

:03:53.:03:56.

start to the evening has been rewarded. Adam Lallana deserves some

:03:57.:04:00.

credit there. -- Liverpool's high-intensity start. So too

:04:01.:04:09.

Wijnaldum and Firmino. Lovely ball through two Mane. He wasn't going to

:04:10.:04:16.

be caught. Clipped it past Lloris, off-balance as he did so. That's

:04:17.:04:23.

lifted Liverpool's spirits. Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur. It

:04:24.:04:28.

ends a run for Liverpool of conceding first in three successive

:04:29.:04:33.

Premier League games. Are they going to run through to score a second

:04:34.:04:38.

very quickly? Firmino doesn't quite have the express pace of Mane,

:04:39.:04:43.

couldn't get away. Walker is quick enough but got the ball caught

:04:44.:04:48.

between his boots. James Milner with the throw.

:04:49.:04:53.

Nobody there in red. Mane is there now. He has Firmino to help him.

:04:54.:05:06.

Lallana is over. Lallana! Firmino! Mane! Two! Two in just over two

:05:07.:05:18.

minutes. And the second scored, despite two saves from Hugo Lloris.

:05:19.:05:26.

Again, Liverpool so quick about their business. The opposite was

:05:27.:05:30.

true about Eric Dier. He doesn't make too many mistakes like that,

:05:31.:05:36.

but he needed too much time. Beaten clear by Lloris, but not to a safe

:05:37.:05:41.

place. Reacted well enough first time, but can't get back to stop

:05:42.:05:45.

Mane's effort, over the head of Davies. Jurgen Klopp's men have a

:05:46.:05:52.

2-0 lead and we have only played 19 minutes. Lots of thinking and

:05:53.:05:57.

stroking of the chin is going on. In the Spurs management seeks. Walker,

:05:58.:06:06.

he might have caused a problem for his fellow defenders. Here's Mane

:06:07.:06:12.

again! Side of the net. That would have been some hat-trick. Deflected

:06:13.:06:23.

behind. Fired across and it was Dembele who headed away. Clever

:06:24.:06:27.

header from Milner. Firmino stopped by Wanyama. Uncertain from Eric

:06:28.:06:37.

Dier. Joel Matip. Mane is here again. It was a rocket shot that has

:06:38.:06:42.

been kept out by Lloris. Goodness me, Sadio Mane's back, all rights!

:06:43.:06:49.

What a start to the night he's had. Super save by Lloris, really strong

:06:50.:06:55.

hand. The thought last week was that Liverpool looked a little fatigued.

:06:56.:07:00.

Maybe they're intense play had caught up with them. They have

:07:01.:07:06.

rediscovered it tonight. Davies through to Son, who is on site.

:07:07.:07:11.

Superb stop by Mignolet, who stood up and blocked. -- who is onside.

:07:12.:07:17.

Partway to redemption after his drop of the ball at Hull a week ago.

:07:18.:07:28.

Eriksen lifts it to Dele Alli, and it's headed over the bar by Lucas.

:07:29.:07:36.

Finally Spurs start to put Liverpool under a bit of pressure. How did

:07:37.:07:41.

Dele Alli find himself so free in the box like that? This is a great

:07:42.:07:47.

block by Mignolet, made sure Son had no targets. They are not enjoying

:07:48.:07:55.

their trip up to Merseyside so far. They have been here 81 times in the

:07:56.:08:04.

past, and have only won eight times. Even these tackles are turning into

:08:05.:08:11.

good passes. Coutinho's shot saved by Lloris, who is keeping Spurs just

:08:12.:08:16.

about in it. It's two, it could have been three, four, five. Miller finds

:08:17.:08:23.

Coutinho, swept into the path of Wijnaldum. -- Milner finds. Mane on

:08:24.:08:32.

a hat-trick. He might have had four goals today. Went home with the

:08:33.:08:37.

match ball twice in his Southampton days, once against Manchester City

:08:38.:08:40.

and once against Aston Villa. That one came inside three minutes.

:08:41.:08:47.

That's a late one, it's another yellow card. Harry Winks, who hasn't

:08:48.:08:55.

been on long. He's caught the mood of his team-mates, but in truth, he

:08:56.:08:57.

did try to pull out. Matip! No power on it. Just in front

:08:58.:09:11.

of Joel Matip, and I think it was Matip's header, easy for Lloris to

:09:12.:09:16.

keep out. Interesting to note that Spurs will play four more games

:09:17.:09:21.

before Liverpool play again. Dembele has lost it.

:09:22.:09:31.

Coutinho, wide. A third goal would seal it. Jurgen Klopp would want to

:09:32.:09:41.

see it sooner rather than later. Coutinho just trying to time it

:09:42.:09:47.

right. Never got a clear sight, opted to fire through the legs of

:09:48.:09:50.

Alderweireld, but it was always wide.

:09:51.:10:03.

Emre Can looks for Firmino to chase it. Lloris has come a long way here.

:10:04.:10:10.

Wijnaldum! It curls away from the goal. Oh! Spurs very nearly gifted

:10:11.:10:20.

Liverpool won anyway. Ben Davies, just for a second, didn't know where

:10:21.:10:22.

Lloris was going. The first time in 2017, they are

:10:23.:10:32.

going to enjoy a win in Saturday night. I think they know it. There

:10:33.:10:38.

is a general feeling that Spurs' fight is over today. Is it terminal

:10:39.:10:42.

as far as their title challenge is concerned? After last week you

:10:43.:10:48.

needed a response. Do you get the feeling as a manager that yes,

:10:49.:10:51.

you're going to get one and you can feel it? Yes. But that would mean I

:10:52.:10:58.

had no idea in the first half, how good... But the week was... We're

:10:59.:11:03.

not too long together, but long enough. These boys were not happy

:11:04.:11:07.

with their own performance. They knew about the need to show a

:11:08.:11:15.

reaction. It was outstanding, but mixed up with a bit of relief. God!

:11:16.:11:22.

It happens today, at a day when another team is here, not when we

:11:23.:11:27.

train or something like this. It was good, so that's what we have too

:11:28.:11:31.

tried to bring on pitch every week. It's true that on the table we are

:11:32.:11:37.

one point above them, but today for the first half, we didn't show that.

:11:38.:11:42.

If you want to win the Premier League, yes, because you need to

:11:43.:11:46.

show more. If not, we will fight for the top four. All the top six. But

:11:47.:11:51.

it's difficult to fight for the Premier League. Everybody has been

:11:52.:11:55.

brilliant and try to stay positive and work really hard in training,

:11:56.:11:59.

listen to the manager and what he wants us to do. I felt as though we

:12:00.:12:04.

did that this weekend. To go to the champions, that has to be our aim.

:12:05.:12:08.

We need this consistently. That's the thing we have to do now.

:12:09.:12:12.

STUDIO: Much better than Liverpool. Terrific performance and no doubt

:12:13.:12:18.

about the star of the show. Sadio Mane, and he missed a chance, could

:12:19.:12:22.

have scored a hat-trick in six minutes. He once scored one for

:12:23.:12:26.

Southampton in less than three minutes. He's top man. I think it's

:12:27.:12:32.

one in seven games that they won, they beat Plymouth Argyle. They

:12:33.:12:36.

couldn't win a game without him. The four, only played two Times in three

:12:37.:12:40.

months together, but when they play together it's like Mane is the one,

:12:41.:12:45.

with the extra bit of pace and threatening behind. Lallana as well.

:12:46.:12:50.

But Mane going behind, he can intercept and is away threatening

:12:51.:12:53.

behind. I don't think they have been doing that recently as often as they

:12:54.:12:57.

should have been doing. That's because he wasn't there. He gives

:12:58.:13:01.

you that threat and he's always getting in and around. This was the

:13:02.:13:07.

goal. Ben Davies had no chance trying to mark him today. Strength,

:13:08.:13:14.

composure. Lallana sensing the danger and stealing the ball. They

:13:15.:13:18.

are away. This is brilliant. When you see it from the other angle, the

:13:19.:13:22.

focus on that ball to make sure he hits the target. He can sense the

:13:23.:13:27.

danger. Kyle Walker doesn't know what's going on. Danny will go into

:13:28.:13:32.

that. That's a brilliant save from Lloris. They couldn't deal with

:13:33.:13:36.

them. Eight shots on target, and in the first half. They were absolutely

:13:37.:13:41.

back to top stuff today, Liverpool. They will be a problem again. Cheeky

:13:42.:13:47.

backheel. He is phenomenal. Gets a nice hug from the manager and he

:13:48.:13:52.

deserves it. By contrast, and we don't usually say this because Spurs

:13:53.:13:56.

are usually solid, but they were a bit of a shambles. I couldn't

:13:57.:14:01.

believe what I was watching. Last year, the best defensive record. I

:14:02.:14:04.

think they are joint best this year. Always solid, hard to break down,

:14:05.:14:09.

but they were all over the place. Why do you think that was? They went

:14:10.:14:13.

to a back four, I know they have injury problems with Vertonghen

:14:14.:14:17.

missing. Most of the time this season may have played with three

:14:18.:14:28.

against the big teams and have done quite well. This was the back four,

:14:29.:14:31.

and even early on the full-backs were too far from the centre halves.

:14:32.:14:33.

Mane running behind creating confusion. Look at the space behind.

:14:34.:14:36.

All well and good playing a back four, but playing that high against

:14:37.:14:39.

the pace of Liverpool, they found it easy to get round the side. And the

:14:40.:14:44.

lack of concentration as well. That's not a back four! I don't know

:14:45.:14:49.

what that is. I can't even give it a name. It became so easy. If it

:14:50.:14:53.

wasn't for Dembele getting back in they would have been two or three

:14:54.:14:57.

down in the first ten minutes. It carried on the whole game.

:14:58.:15:01.

Alderweireld, for me he's probably the best centre-half in the Premier

:15:02.:15:05.

League, last season especially. Makes a bad decision and steps out.

:15:06.:15:11.

Even if he steps out, they are too high. Playing against somebody with

:15:12.:15:15.

that pace, especially with Danny Rose is not there. Davies is a good

:15:16.:15:19.

footballer but he doesn't have the athleticism of Rose. Mane and

:15:20.:15:23.

Liverpool knew that. Terrible pass from Walker and he's given him five

:15:24.:15:27.

yards. If it's Danny Rose, it's not the same problem. I thought they

:15:28.:15:31.

should have stuck with what they have done against the big sides,

:15:32.:15:37.

playing three. It was infectious. The sloppiness and bad decision

:15:38.:15:41.

making. They got away with murder. It was so unlike the Tottenham we

:15:42.:15:43.

have seen for the last 12 months. Spurs' away record against the other

:15:44.:15:54.

five in the top six doesn't make very good reading. They have got to

:15:55.:15:58.

turn that around if they want to be a very good challenger. There is a

:15:59.:16:03.

lack of pace when they break on teams away from home because they

:16:04.:16:07.

are a bit deeper. It is also a different mindset when they go away,

:16:08.:16:11.

they have got to improve, and quickly. A great win for Liverpool,

:16:12.:16:13.

back in form. Sunderland remained bottom

:16:14.:16:15.

after last week's 4-0 win at Crystal Palace,

:16:16.:16:17.

but were now just two They hosted Southampton,

:16:18.:16:19.

who'd lost six of their last Sunderland forced to make a change

:16:20.:16:29.

to the side that produced that coupon buster at Palace. Jack

:16:30.:16:33.

Rodwell ruled out with a damaged hamstring. Another ex-Evertonians,

:16:34.:16:38.

Darron Gibson, is called up by David Moyes for his first Sunderland

:16:39.:16:42.

start. The name Gabbiadini was once sung with real gusto in these parts.

:16:43.:16:48.

Marco Gabbiadini, a Wearside hero in the late 80s, Manolo Gabbiadini has

:16:49.:16:52.

already made an impact at Southampton, scoring on his debut.

:16:53.:16:56.

Today he is joined by Tadic and Redmond up front, as Saints look to

:16:57.:17:03.

hold their alarming slump in form. Southampton's last game before the

:17:04.:17:07.

EFL Cup final in one month's time. You could hardly call it a warm up.

:17:08.:17:15.

Bryan Oviedo to lift it in. Poor clearance for Januzaj, and it came

:17:16.:17:20.

off Mike Bertrand, whose initial had offered the opportunity to the

:17:21.:17:25.

Belgian. -- it came off Bertrand. Oviedo. Wasn't dealt with

:17:26.:17:29.

effectively by Bertrand. Januzaj couldn't punish him to the maximum.

:17:30.:17:34.

The has only scored once. The land, that was in the EFL Cup. -- has only

:17:35.:17:40.

scored once for Sunderland. Januzaj outmuscled by Yazidi.

:17:41.:17:46.

Looking to flick it through to Gabbiadini. Only could come so far

:17:47.:17:53.

before putting the brakes on. It will fall for Cedric! Gabbiadini had

:17:54.:17:58.

the foresight to pick out somebody on the edge of the box. Fortunately

:17:59.:18:03.

for Sunderland, it is a player who never scored in the Premier League,

:18:04.:18:04.

Cedric. Ward-Prowse. Romero has done well to dig that out

:18:05.:18:17.

and find Bertrand. Quality ball, and it soon! Of Gabbiadini last, and

:18:18.:18:23.

Mannone had no answer. Manolo Gabbiadini, Southampton's record

:18:24.:18:28.

signing, makes it two in two. It's all about the delivery from Ryan

:18:29.:18:36.

Bertrand, though. Whips it in. Off Kone's head and onto the of

:18:37.:18:44.

Gabbiadini. Yes, it's off the top of Kone's head, it caresses the forearm

:18:45.:18:49.

of Gabbiadini before nestling into the bottom corner. Ward-Prowse for

:18:50.:18:58.

Tadic. And again, Tadic in a bit of space at the moment. Lovely turn!

:18:59.:19:07.

Lovely finish! 2-0 Southampton. Well, if there was any doubt as to

:19:08.:19:11.

who got the final touch was pumped's first goal, no doubt whatsoever that

:19:12.:19:17.

the second belongs to Gabbiadini. A shake of the head by David Moyes.

:19:18.:19:22.

What a time for Sunderland to concede a second goal. It looked bad

:19:23.:19:26.

that one down, but that two down there is a mountain to climb. Great

:19:27.:19:32.

spin from Gabbiadini. In most composed finish. Three goals in 1.5

:19:33.:19:39.

games now for the Italian. He might have cost ?15 million, but right now

:19:40.:19:43.

that looks money well spent. Malone, not a strong enough touch to keep it

:19:44.:19:49.

out. -- Victor Mannone. They have seen this sort of situation down the

:19:50.:19:54.

years, confidence up after the morale boosting victory a week ago,

:19:55.:19:59.

and it all comes tumbling down at home. He has been the fall side,

:20:00.:20:05.

Manolo Gabbiadini, it's a long way back for Sunderland now. This is

:20:06.:20:08.

Dave is. Now Romero. Davies again. Tadic inching his way closer, and

:20:09.:20:26.

letting it fly! Plenty of power. Malone got a good fist to it. --

:20:27.:20:33.

Victor Mannone. It doesn't look like last week's victory at Palace was a

:20:34.:20:40.

liftoff after all. Ward-Prowse has got to be good to beat Victor

:20:41.:20:45.

Mannone from there. It was nearly very good from James Ward-Prowse.

:20:46.:20:49.

Scored in Southampton's previous away wins this season. Claude Puel

:20:50.:20:54.

looking to become the first Southampton manager to win a major

:20:55.:21:01.

bid of silverware for 41 years. Indigo is the cross. He is waiting!

:21:02.:21:09.

And Victor Mannone is saving. -- in those the cross. His second touch

:21:10.:21:13.

since coming off the bench for the goal-scorer, Gabbiadini. Very nearly

:21:14.:21:17.

made sure of the points here. Bertrand trying to get forward,

:21:18.:21:27.

Redmond delayed the past beautifully. Bertrand with the ball

:21:28.:21:32.

across, and it soon! I rather think the final touch came off Mike

:21:33.:21:36.

Denayer. Gabbiadini might get the first goal in that of it being an

:21:37.:21:40.

own goal, but I think that one has to go down as an own goal by the

:21:41.:21:46.

hapless Jason Denayer. And it rather sums up Sunderland's miserable

:21:47.:21:50.

afternoon on a miserable, wet grey day at the Stadium Of Light.

:21:51.:21:56.

Bertrand picking out Long. Long in again! And he will claim that one!

:21:57.:22:08.

Shane Long with his fifth of the season. So open at the back here,

:22:09.:22:14.

it's embarrassing. And Long just steers it alongside Victor Mannone.

:22:15.:22:19.

If last week's Triumph suggested hope for Sunderland, today's 4-0

:22:20.:22:23.

thrashing suggests relegation for Sunderland. If body language reveals

:22:24.:22:32.

anything, it reveals the lack of optimism that David Moyes has of

:22:33.:22:36.

getting Sunderland out of this relegation mess. So many red seats

:22:37.:22:48.

visible now. Oh, it soon! -- it is in! It won't count. A yellow card

:22:49.:22:54.

shown to Khazri. He has just flicked it in with his knuckles, that's why

:22:55.:23:03.

it was disallowed. The sound of booing echoing around the Stadium Of

:23:04.:23:07.

Light from the final whistle. David Moyes is battling a lost cause at

:23:08.:23:15.

the moment, it seems. Final score, 4-0 to Southampton. They did play

:23:16.:23:19.

well. We didn't play as well as we played last week. We made a couple

:23:20.:23:23.

of defensive mistakes. But overall, you know, it is a little bit of

:23:24.:23:28.

expectation. It is on us to win. Sometimes this season we have not

:23:29.:23:32.

taken it. We have a great chance to move out of the bottom three today

:23:33.:23:36.

if the results had gone for us. And we just didn't. We weren't quite

:23:37.:23:40.

good enough to do it. It was a fantastic game for us. A good

:23:41.:23:45.

attitude, a good spirit since the beginning of this game. And it was

:23:46.:23:51.

difficult, because we played a team in confidence with their last

:23:52.:23:56.

results. We had a team who started today's game really well for 20, 25

:23:57.:24:01.

minutes, and they got a goal that was off the centre forward's arm,

:24:02.:24:05.

difficult for the referee to see it, but it still makes a big difference.

:24:06.:24:10.

What is it like playing with Manolo Gabbiadini, your new team-mate? You

:24:11.:24:13.

set him up for his second goal of the game was ill and he is a very

:24:14.:24:17.

good player. He just came and he started very well. He wants to play

:24:18.:24:22.

smart. I'm happy that he scores goals. He was scoring goals. We have

:24:23.:24:28.

seen Gabbiadini score goals at Sunderland before, but that was

:24:29.:24:31.

Marco Gabbiadini, this is Manolo Gabbiadini, he looks like a really

:24:32.:24:35.

good signing. A bargain committee is turning out to be. He scored a good

:24:36.:24:40.

goal against West Ham. This is what David Moyes is talking about, it is

:24:41.:24:43.

difficult to see. I am impressed with the running. You see it from

:24:44.:24:45.

the other angle. It was a good run, in between them.

:24:46.:24:53.

He got himself in there. David Moyes can be upset but it wouldn't have

:24:54.:24:58.

made too much different. The first goal is always important, though. It

:24:59.:25:02.

is his movement, a great run off the defender. He tries to put Tadic in,

:25:03.:25:07.

it doesn't quite work out. This is a super goal. Kone could be tighter on

:25:08.:25:12.

him, but still took the opportunity, brilliant turn. Not seeing too many

:25:13.:25:15.

of those goals at the moment, that was fantastic, look at that. You

:25:16.:25:21.

know something, he nearly gets a hat-trick, he just doesn't quite get

:25:22.:25:26.

the purchase on it. Hear coming back, calm. You wouldn't see me

:25:27.:25:35.

doing that. Like I say, done all of his best work, they have got a bit

:25:36.:25:40.

of a bargain from Napoli first up white won 4-0 away at last week, and

:25:41.:25:46.

now they have lost, you can't be more erratic than that. Their home

:25:47.:25:52.

form has been awful. Jermain Defoe has got 58% of Sunderland's goals

:25:53.:25:57.

this season. If he is not getting chances, nobody else is going to

:25:58.:26:00.

school for them. They are defensively all over the place. They

:26:01.:26:03.

are the one side for me who don't look like they can stop conceding

:26:04.:26:07.

goals. Last week they had a one-off performance but generally they are

:26:08.:26:10.

easy to score against an play against. Five more matches for you

:26:11.:26:12.

on tonight's show. Two straight defeats had left

:26:13.:26:36.

Arsenal 12 points off the top, prompting intense speculation

:26:37.:26:39.

about the future of Arsene Wenger. His fault!

:26:40.:26:46.

LAUGHTER They played a much-improved

:26:47.:26:48.

Hull City, watched by Steve Wilson. Lauren Koscielny's equaliser in the

:26:49.:26:59.

2014 FA Cup final wipe out in early 2-0 hole lead and ended a nine year

:27:00.:27:06.

run without a trophy, one of nine won by Arsene Wenger whose future is

:27:07.:27:11.

the talking point at the Emirates. Hull's 4-point wall from games

:27:12.:27:14.

against Manchester United and Liverpool have given them plenty of

:27:15.:27:18.

reasons to be cheerful. Will this be part three? Everton loan the Oumar

:27:19.:27:22.

Niasse it replaces the injured Hernandez.

:27:23.:27:30.

Huddleston trying to help. The Kelly and forward. Alexis Sanchez onside!

:27:31.:27:42.

-- Coquelin forward. Just did enough to make it difficult for Alexis

:27:43.:27:49.

Sanchez. It was keeper's poor clearance which started it.

:27:50.:27:55.

Iwobi running Markovic. -- running into Markovic. They are still in the

:27:56.:28:09.

middle! Great chance! Krasinski back in. Out by Laurent Koscielny. Tom

:28:10.:28:12.

Huddlestone. Robertson for Hull. Too high for

:28:13.:28:25.

Clucas, comfortable for Cech. Iwobi got himself caught. Markovic racing

:28:26.:28:31.

clear. Niasse in a great position. Just didn't quite anticipate where

:28:32.:28:37.

the ball was coming. It is a very, very cold early afternoon in north

:28:38.:28:41.

London. It shows just how open the game is as well. A good-looking ball

:28:42.:28:48.

from Ndiaye, he has picked out Rusedski. Great header! Could save

:28:49.:28:55.

by Cech. Niasse denied. Wonderful ball by Krasinski. They really

:28:56.:28:58.

decent header from Niasse. The save from Cech is equal to it.

:28:59.:29:06.

Hull's corner again. Coquelin away, Mesut Ozil, Sanchez ahead of him.

:29:07.:29:13.

Lazar Markovic in the way for Hull City. Gives it back to us all. The

:29:14.:29:19.

break is still an -- gives it back to Mesut Ozil.

:29:20.:29:30.

Lovely 1-2... Bellerin! Just required the finish. Completely

:29:31.:29:39.

blocked the defence. Maybe just coming to the wrong man.

:29:40.:29:48.

McGuire's head. Huddlestone was a bit late but advantage played.

:29:49.:29:56.

Coquelin is fine. It's fallen to Alexis Sanchez, and he's missed it!

:29:57.:30:04.

He cannot believe it. It's come off the defender, so the fact he was

:30:05.:30:09.

standing in an offside position was immaterial. And you would put

:30:10.:30:12.

everything you had on Alexis Sanchez to stick that in the back of the

:30:13.:30:18.

net. Marco Silva won here as the coach of Olympiakos last season in

:30:19.:30:22.

the Champions League. Thrilling 3-2 victory for the Greek side. Have to

:30:23.:30:28.

admire the way Hull City have gone about the first 33 minutes of the

:30:29.:30:34.

game. Alex Iwobi wriggles through. Mesut Ozil. Plenty of red and white

:30:35.:30:39.

shirts. Out by Huddlestone, in by Kieran Gibbs. Off the line, and in

:30:40.:30:43.

by Alexis Sanchez. You can't say it hasn't been coming. It's the third

:30:44.:30:48.

time Alexis Sanchez has scored against Hull City this season. Six

:30:49.:30:55.

red and white shirts forward. Shot blocked on the line. Jakupovic

:30:56.:31:00.

couldn't gather it. Although the whole city goalkeeper is complaining

:31:01.:31:04.

about a possible handball, it does bounce off the goalkeeper's leg onto

:31:05.:31:11.

Sanchez's hand. The linesman on the near side watching closely. The goal

:31:12.:31:22.

stands. Hull City complain, Alexis Sanchez scores.

:31:23.:31:28.

A little bit of room here for Alexis Sanchez. He could pick a pass in. He

:31:29.:31:35.

finds Alex Iwobi. Straight to Huddlestone. He cut out the route

:31:36.:31:42.

back to Alexis Sanchez. Nice change of direction by Markovic. Oumar

:31:43.:31:50.

Niasse is in the middle. Niasse. It's dangerous. Good save by Cech.

:31:51.:31:57.

Good effort by Niasse. Maybe too straight, but a good save by Cech

:31:58.:31:58.

nonetheless. Kieran Gibbs ran into Markovic here.

:31:59.:32:09.

What's the decision? It will be a yellow card for Kieran Gibbs.

:32:10.:32:14.

Markovic is absolutely furious. Hull City are saying that if that's only

:32:15.:32:19.

a yellow card, then Arsenal have got away with one. Markovic is quick.

:32:20.:32:24.

There is no one between Kieran Gibbs and Cech. He's last man. And he

:32:25.:32:30.

didn't seem to have eyes for the ball at all. Gibbs is blocked, might

:32:31.:32:38.

be lucky. Hull certainly think so. -- is booked. Comes through to

:32:39.:32:47.

Elmohamady. Four in a box for Hull. Good ball in, Coquelin had to deal

:32:48.:32:51.

with it. Here's Robertson. Arsenal need to defend here. Maguire. Good

:32:52.:33:01.

feet, chipped in. Promising. Markovic! Comfortable save for Cech

:33:02.:33:06.

in the end. But there are alarm bells for Arsenal when Hull get

:33:07.:33:08.

bodies forward. Hull asking the questions as the

:33:09.:33:17.

game ticks on. Five to play. Robertson takes on the defender.

:33:18.:33:26.

Deep cross, was never going to be won. Markovic gets what he wants, a

:33:27.:33:37.

corner. Evandro will take this. Good pace on that. They really good ball

:33:38.:33:43.

in and Diomande got his head on it but didn't get over it. When he

:33:44.:33:47.

watches this again, Diomande will think this is a chance. Hull City

:33:48.:33:54.

will have all eyes on the board in a minute. They still fancy themselves

:33:55.:33:59.

to get one here, Hull. Robertson. It's a corner. You have to hand it

:34:00.:34:05.

to Hull. They are the team asking the questions. Arsenal are the team

:34:06.:34:10.

holding on. Clucas with a corner kick. It is met by Robertson and

:34:11.:34:15.

Alexis together. Clucas, room and time for the cross. Out by Mustafi.

:34:16.:34:26.

Elmohamady shanked it. Did Elmohamady handle it? Not according

:34:27.:34:29.

to the referee. Remaining four minutes. Sanchez. Jakupovic has

:34:30.:34:36.

come. He's in no man's land. Lucas in the middle. -- Clucas in the

:34:37.:34:43.

middle. Surely handball. Spotted by the officials. It's going to be a

:34:44.:34:49.

red card and a penalty. He has moved his arm in the direction of the ball

:34:50.:34:53.

which was certainly going in the back of the net. No other call for

:34:54.:34:58.

Mark Clattenburg to make. Alexis Sanchez, he missed a penalty against

:34:59.:35:03.

Hull City in the reversed fixture last autumn. He tries to make it

:35:04.:35:09.

two. And he does. And finally, the points are safe. Hard and low and

:35:10.:35:12.

close to Jakupovic though it was, the keeper couldn't get down.

:35:13.:35:21.

Arsenal 2-0 Hull City. Job done. I thought we played resilient,

:35:22.:35:26.

focused, organised. But we were under big pressure to win the game.

:35:27.:35:32.

Hull played well. Overall we needed to be focused to the end to get away

:35:33.:35:36.

with a positive result. You can see why they have made results against

:35:37.:35:41.

big teams recently. It was a good performance most of the first half.

:35:42.:35:47.

We controlled all the second-half. Caused Arsenal big problems

:35:48.:35:52.

second-half. I gather the referee has actually apologised to you at

:35:53.:35:55.

half-time collectively for awarding the goal. The referee says he has

:35:56.:36:01.

missed it. If he hasn't seen it, then he can't give it. It's

:36:02.:36:05.

disappointing, but if the referee hasn't seen it, we can't be too

:36:06.:36:08.

critical. Noticeable today that there were banners in the ground

:36:09.:36:15.

saying, Arsene state. I have big respect for this country and this

:36:16.:36:22.

club. -- Arsene stay. I have been here 20 years. But my job is to make

:36:23.:36:26.

these people happy. When I don't do it I feel, of course, guilty. That's

:36:27.:36:29.

why it was important for us to win. After the game Arsene Wenger spoke

:36:30.:36:37.

to the press and somebody asked him about your comments where you

:36:38.:36:40.

suggested that you felt that from meeting him the other night that he

:36:41.:36:44.

might be on his way out. And he was going to retire. He responded by

:36:45.:36:48.

saying, I could be tired because I get up early in the morning and

:36:49.:36:51.

finished late at night, but I didn't give any indication about my future.

:36:52.:36:54.

Any thoughts? I got the tiredness right. It was a question and answer

:36:55.:37:00.

and it was a really good evening. The way the boss was speaking,

:37:01.:37:04.

talking about coming to the end and his demeanour and how it was going,

:37:05.:37:09.

in my opinion, it was a feeling. It's my opinion. I could be wrong. I

:37:10.:37:15.

seldom am! But I could be wrong. I base it on that and I stick by it. I

:37:16.:37:20.

think with everything that's going on... There are tough games coming

:37:21.:37:23.

up and I think he has massive decisions to make and I think this

:37:24.:37:29.

might be his last season. Time will tell. Danny, Hull had an unfortunate

:37:30.:37:33.

game. A couple of bad decisions. Really bad. I felt for them. It

:37:34.:37:37.

seems like when you down the bottom you don't get the rub of the green.

:37:38.:37:43.

But this one, it's obviously a handball and you can't score with

:37:44.:37:47.

your hand and it stands. Whether he meant it or not, doesn't matter. I

:37:48.:37:51.

can understand why the referee doesn't see it, but the assistant is

:37:52.:37:54.

looking down the line. Don't know why he doesn't see it. This one was

:37:55.:38:01.

the same. Kieran Gibbs is back, he hasn't played enough and I like him.

:38:02.:38:05.

He takes him out here. Markovic was brilliant today, a threat. If he

:38:06.:38:09.

doesn't take him out, he's through on goal, one against one. It's a

:38:10.:38:13.

possible red card and that's two really bad decisions. I felt for

:38:14.:38:17.

them, but another good performance from Hull, really positive.

:38:18.:38:21.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, you like him in the central role for Arsenal. I do,

:38:22.:38:26.

we both like that. We are big fans of his. Wherever he plays, he's a

:38:27.:38:32.

threat, but he doesn't play enough for me. In this central role, you

:38:33.:38:36.

see the aspects of his game. He can pass and be productive, he can play

:38:37.:38:41.

between the lines. He can play big diagonal balls out wide. A lot of

:38:42.:38:45.

Arsenal midfielders can do that, but what can he give the other

:38:46.:38:49.

midfielders don't give? He's more dynamic. He is quicker, stronger. He

:38:50.:38:55.

still wants to get in the box from a central position. Good awareness,

:38:56.:38:57.

played round the park you have to to be strong. This

:38:58.:39:19.

is brilliant here. Unbelievable. You're right, no one else, none of

:39:20.:39:22.

the other Arsenal midfielders do that. He has this ability that so

:39:23.:39:29.

many other players don't. Why hasn't he been a regular? So injured and

:39:30.:39:34.

stuff like that. He has been injured and can't seem to hold down a place.

:39:35.:39:39.

It annoys me, thinking, why was he taken off in that game when he was

:39:40.:39:44.

having such a good game? It must be so demoralising for him. Maybe he

:39:45.:39:48.

was tired, has to get up early. Depends how early he got up. Hull

:39:49.:39:53.

look an entirely different proposition under Silva. They had

:39:54.:40:00.

51% possession at Arsenal. We are talking about a in the bottom three

:40:01.:40:05.

of the table. Markovic was brilliant today. This is another great chance

:40:06.:40:10.

for Oumar Niasse. Mustafi, where he ends up, so much more space where

:40:11.:40:16.

you can play him offside. Goes across and misses the opportunity.

:40:17.:40:20.

He could have got a foot on it. They were brilliant. They really went at

:40:21.:40:25.

Arsenal. Another great chance, Oumar Niasse has to try to headed back

:40:26.:40:30.

across the goal. Petr Cech makes a simple save at the end. But it's

:40:31.:40:34.

superb play. Again, getting down the wing. He played very well today,

:40:35.:40:46.

Grosicki. What's amazing about Huddlestone, Markovic was great, but

:40:47.:40:49.

I'm a big fan of Huddlestone, they don't play him because they don't

:40:50.:40:52.

think he does enough defensively. You don't need to defend if you keep

:40:53.:40:58.

the ball as well as they did today. And McGuire, his last four games,

:40:59.:41:02.

against Chelsea, United. Four points against the last four big teams

:41:03.:41:09.

recently. Other teams should worry. Four weeks ago you thought they were

:41:10.:41:13.

certainties to go down but now they look like they have a chance of

:41:14.:41:15.

staying up. We shall see. Manchester United were unbeaten

:41:16.:41:17.

in the league since October, but still hadn't climbed

:41:18.:41:19.

higher than sixth. Watford visited Old Trafford having

:41:20.:41:21.

won there just once, in the Taylor and Blissett

:41:22.:41:23.

era 38 years ago. COMMENTATOR: Zlatan Ibrahimovic has

:41:24.:41:33.

reached the 20 goal mark for the tenth season in a row in his career.

:41:34.:41:37.

Mourinho says he's confident the 35 will be at Manchester United next

:41:38.:41:42.

season having made more appearances than any other player so far. He

:41:43.:41:46.

supported today by the recall Anthony Martial with Marcus Rashford

:41:47.:41:49.

on the bench. Tom Cleverley was part of the last Manchester United squad

:41:50.:41:53.

to win a Premier League title. He's never managed to beat his former

:41:54.:41:57.

club. But what the dog unbeaten in the four Premier League games he has

:41:58.:42:00.

played since joining on loan from Everton. -- but Watford are

:42:01.:42:07.

unbeaten. The 59th anniversary of the Munich air disaster. Relatives

:42:08.:42:16.

of those killed are guests of the day's game. United players wearing

:42:17.:42:18.

black armbands in respect of that. Mkhitaryan wants to have the shot

:42:19.:42:29.

and does have the shot. Safely gathered by Gomes. Mkhitaryan is

:42:30.:42:35.

full of confidence at the moment. Wanted to try to get the effort in

:42:36.:42:37.

there. Couldn't generate any power. Watford play on. Holebas! He had the

:42:38.:42:57.

confidence to have a go. The referee playing the advantage. It was

:42:58.:43:01.

curling the wrong way, as far as the Greek international was concerned.

:43:02.:43:08.

15 league games unbeaten, the longest unbeaten run in any of

:43:09.:43:13.

Europe's top five leagues. United's longest unbeaten league run since

:43:14.:43:16.

the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson as well.

:43:17.:43:21.

Pogba has time to have a look. Gomes was equal to it. Wasn't closed down

:43:22.:43:32.

there, Paul Pogba. Was just looking for the top corner. United have used

:43:33.:43:41.

30 players this season, 19 different nationalities.

:43:42.:43:49.

Zarate showing some cleverness here, but not stretching David de Gea.

:43:50.:43:57.

Pogba tries to lift it forward towards Ibrahimovic. He's onside

:43:58.:44:04.

here. Frustrated again, because he timed the run. Was definitely on the

:44:05.:44:10.

side. His first touch was exemplary. -- definitely on the side. As it

:44:11.:44:14.

dropped, he got right underneath it. Pogba. Trying to link up with

:44:15.:44:21.

Ibrahimovic. Given away by Sebastian Prodl.

:44:22.:44:27.

Valencia away from Niang. Still going, Valencia. Pogba! Denied by

:44:28.:44:40.

Gomes began. -- again. And it all came from the strength and

:44:41.:44:44.

subsequent awareness of Antonio Valencia down the right-hand side.

:44:45.:44:48.

He knew where the goal was. Gomes able to get there if second time. --

:44:49.:44:58.

a second time. Carraro. Mata on the move. Here he is. It's still alive.

:44:59.:45:08.

Mkhitaryan! There goes another one. The two Spaniards linked up

:45:09.:45:11.

beautifully. Terrific awareness from Mata. No composure from Mkhitaryan.

:45:12.:45:20.

He wants to see one of these chances in the back of the net as soon as

:45:21.:45:27.

the. So will he. -- as soon as possible.

:45:28.:45:34.

Mata again making an intelligent front. What a save from Gomes to

:45:35.:45:38.

deny Ibrahimovic! Well, he is building quite a

:45:39.:45:48.

repertoire already, Gomes, that might have been the best of the lot.

:45:49.:45:57.

Watford are giving the ball away far too cheaply. They are going to be

:45:58.:46:03.

punished, surely, sooner or later. Here is Mkhitaryan... Martial!

:46:04.:46:10.

Through Juan Mata! You did feel it was a case of when and not if. Gomes

:46:11.:46:17.

finally beaten by Mata, whose goal in this fixture last season, he was

:46:18.:46:22.

involved in the build up. Martial drove it across. And Mata tucked it

:46:23.:46:29.

away. Just pulled up Sebastian Prodl. And swept it over. It had

:46:30.:46:35.

been coming. Mata for Manchester United, 1-0. Manchester United

:46:36.:46:42.

actually don't play Premier League game after today until the 4th of

:46:43.:46:43.

March. Pogba being lysed. -- penalised.

:46:44.:46:47.

Stretching. Can Watford make anything of this?

:46:48.:47:03.

Zarate! What a spectacular save from de Gea. He did really well to keep

:47:04.:47:12.

that out. The Argentinian got this up and over the wall. He had to move

:47:13.:47:16.

smartly to his right hand side, David de Gea. Beaten just once in

:47:17.:47:24.

the Premier League in Old Trafford in the last 20 matches.

:47:25.:47:32.

Martial is onside. Still Martial... And he has squeezed it home! Jose

:47:33.:47:42.

Mourinho delighted to see the second in the back of the net! Right on the

:47:43.:47:48.

hour mark. The man back in the team today, back with a goal. He was

:47:49.:47:54.

onside when it was set in by Ibrahimovic. Took his time to assess

:47:55.:47:58.

the situation and then cleverly dispatched it into the bottom corner

:47:59.:48:02.

of the near post. Just his third Premier League goal of the season,

:48:03.:48:09.

and it is one that will change the scoreline. 2-0.

:48:10.:48:18.

Niang holding off... And here is an opportunity. It is one Daryl Janmaat

:48:19.:48:27.

cannot get close to taking. Ibrahimovic wanted it. It's gone to

:48:28.:48:37.

Rashford instead. Now Ibrahimovic has it.

:48:38.:48:44.

He has still found Mkhitaryan... And Ibrahimovic! Just got his angles and

:48:45.:48:52.

little mixed up. Wonderful strength and vision in the first place from

:48:53.:48:58.

the Swede to find Mkhitaryan. He went with his right. And that was

:48:59.:49:04.

the end result. In the first half, the football was fabulous. And the

:49:05.:49:09.

fans, they got behind the team just before we scored the goal, because

:49:10.:49:14.

we were playing phenomenal. So I'm really happy with that. We started

:49:15.:49:19.

very well. But then during the game, of course, especially in the

:49:20.:49:25.

midfield we have to play more the ball. We kept to much, we kept

:49:26.:49:29.

losing the ball, and then they scored. We lost a bit of focus for

:49:30.:49:34.

four or five minutes. Then on the second half, we were playing well,

:49:35.:49:40.

but it was our mistake that allowed the second goal, maybe we could have

:49:41.:49:45.

got at least one point. Before I got the job, people were saying that Man

:49:46.:49:49.

Utd have to play football in a certain way. And I agree, I agree

:49:50.:49:53.

totally, you have to play in a certain way. You cannot play like

:49:54.:49:58.

some successful teams in the Premier League. But they play in a

:49:59.:50:02.

completely different style. We have to play attacking football. What is

:50:03.:50:06.

it like to play in the team at the moment, creating so many chances?

:50:07.:50:13.

Very incredible. When you play with, you know, Anthony, Henrikh, Paul,

:50:14.:50:18.

you create chances and enjoy the pitch. You have to be careful

:50:19.:50:22.

because you need to be consistent on how you defend. Obviously, Watford

:50:23.:50:26.

came here to try and defend very good and take us in the

:50:27.:50:29.

counterattack. They did well, but I think we played good football today.

:50:30.:50:35.

We went in a convincing way. Won on the scoresheet again. I met him the

:50:36.:50:40.

other day, spoke a bit of time with him -- Janmaat on the scoresheet

:50:41.:50:44.

today. A delightful chap and enough lovely footballer. I wonder if he

:50:45.:50:50.

thought the same about you! He probably did! Were you speaking

:50:51.:50:54.

Spanish to him? I wasn't going to show off! I am a big fan of him. His

:50:55.:50:59.

transformation is amazing. When he had his two Player of the Year

:51:00.:51:02.

seasons with Chelsea and Mourinho got rid of him, when he went united,

:51:03.:51:07.

I thought, it's all over. But to be fair to him coming he has not called

:51:08.:51:10.

down and got himself back involved in the side. -- he has knuckled

:51:11.:51:16.

down. Out of all of the striking options, he has become, he is the

:51:17.:51:20.

most reliable goal-scorer. He is always calm in front of goal, he is

:51:21.:51:24.

inventive and creative. And today was again clever. And just so

:51:25.:51:34.

exquisite in the technical aspect of the game. He knows when... I mean,

:51:35.:51:39.

look at that, that looks easy, but it's not. It's being calm. The goal

:51:40.:51:44.

was just perfect. That's coming up in a minute. Picking out the right

:51:45.:51:47.

choices in the final third is the hardest thing to do on a football

:51:48.:51:51.

pitch. He gets in these little positions. Lovely touch here.

:51:52.:51:57.

Awareness. Martial as well today. Mkhitaryan is getting to his best.

:51:58.:52:01.

The local so little combinations, look at that. Everyone of them was

:52:02.:52:06.

at it. Mata, because of the fact that he is scoring now, probably one

:52:07.:52:10.

of the first names on the team sheet. Look at the table. Aside from

:52:11.:52:16.

Chelsea, two point separates the next five teams. Manchester United

:52:17.:52:19.

right back in that top four race here. When you look at it, look at

:52:20.:52:23.

the way that no more playing today, Arsenal seem to be winning games and

:52:24.:52:28.

not playing brilliantly -- Tottenham are playing today. Manchester United

:52:29.:52:31.

have not lost since October, they are on the march. They are, and

:52:32.:52:35.

playing football that everybody wants to see. Looking good, a

:52:36.:52:36.

threat. A run of six wins in nine

:52:37.:52:39.

matches had taken West Ham Their opponents West Brom

:52:40.:52:42.

were a place above them Michail Antonio scored at the

:52:43.:52:55.

Hawthorns in September, as West Ham slumped to a 4-2 defeat. It is his

:52:56.:52:59.

job to lead the attack today, with Andy Carroll absent with a groin

:53:00.:53:03.

problem. Nacer Chadli scored two goals for Albion that they, and is

:53:04.:53:07.

named in an unchanged line-up this afternoon. Fit again Jonny Evans and

:53:08.:53:11.

Yakov have been named among the substitutes. A warm embrace between

:53:12.:53:15.

the two managers. Tony Pulis certainly has a hand shake for some

:53:16.:53:21.

people. The slight feeling that West Ham haven't been entirely

:53:22.:53:26.

comfortable in their new surroundings sometimes this season,

:53:27.:53:29.

some tentative performances. But they have won as many at home as

:53:30.:53:33.

Manchester United have so far. Here comes Morris. -- Morris. Promising

:53:34.:53:41.

play! And the opening goal of the match for West Bromwich Albion, for

:53:42.:53:46.

Nacer Chadli. Superb chart start for Albion! Slaven Bilic, animated and

:53:47.:53:54.

unhappy. His team behind to an early goal. Let's have a look at the

:53:55.:54:00.

talent. West Ham unhappy, -- the challenge. West Ham say they should

:54:01.:54:04.

have had a free kick. Didn't Nacer Chadli take that opportunity well?

:54:05.:54:11.

Mark Noble with the ball, moving forward. The challenge coming here

:54:12.:54:16.

on Sofiane Feghouli. Referee Michael Oliver incurring a raft of the West

:54:17.:54:23.

Ham bench early on. Snodgrass, watched very closely by Gareth

:54:24.:54:27.

McAuley. Getting a little bit too handy that with the West Ham player.

:54:28.:54:29.

Free kick for the home team. Robert Snodgrass with the delivery,

:54:30.:54:40.

curling bat on in! Does he get a touch? The all-important final touch

:54:41.:54:45.

was off Ben Foster. With that in by Snodgrass. Kept out by Foster. --

:54:46.:54:51.

whipped in by Snodgrass. Saved by Ben Foster in front of the watching

:54:52.:54:55.

England manager, Gareth Southgate. Forward by Mark Noble towards

:54:56.:55:01.

Antonio. A real physical duel with Dawson and McAuley.

:55:02.:55:07.

Interestingly, Antonio just pushed Dawson out of the way, as that shot

:55:08.:55:14.

comes in and smacks the crossbar. Solomon Rondon, so close. The lips

:55:15.:55:18.

winning in the air. Rondon, tremendous effort. West Brom without

:55:19.:55:23.

a win away to West Ham since 2003. 14 years ago. A long way to go yet,

:55:24.:55:30.

though. Robert Snodgrass once again for West Ham. Foster under pressure.

:55:31.:55:37.

Keeps it at bay. West Ham... The flag grows up! -- goes up. The fired

:55:38.:55:44.

up straightaway. Michael Oliver totally surrounded by players from

:55:45.:55:51.

both teams here. The flag went up on the near side as the ball headed for

:55:52.:55:55.

the back of the net. As the shot comes in, you see Michail Antonio

:55:56.:55:58.

tackling with the goalkeeper, and the goal this allowed for offside as

:55:59.:56:02.

a result. And it seems as though Slaven Bilic's first-team Assistant

:56:03.:56:11.

Manager has been sent off amid the melee following that disallowed

:56:12.:56:18.

goal. Lanzini in towards the Doully, Snodgrass beat into it. Chris Bryant

:56:19.:56:23.

sliding in. Behind for a West Ham corner. -- towards Feghouli.

:56:24.:56:29.

Foster is there! It drops almost on the line. Couple of appeals from

:56:30.:56:36.

West Ham players that it had gone over. It didn't quite fall for

:56:37.:56:40.

Michail Antonio there. Phillips clears his lines.

:56:41.:56:47.

The Doully... Will he find a way through? Down inside the penalty

:56:48.:56:53.

area goes Robertson was. Michael Oliver is not impressed. -- goes

:56:54.:57:00.

Robert Snodgrass. Snodgrass goes to ground under pressure from Jake

:57:01.:57:04.

Livermore. So far this season, West Brom have only lost one match to a

:57:05.:57:08.

side outside of the current top seven in the table. This by 1-0 at

:57:09.:57:11.

Bournemouth back in the autumn. Snodgrass... Dangerous delivery!

:57:12.:57:23.

Looking for the head of Antonio. Still the pressure is on. Lanzini!

:57:24.:57:30.

Smacks the bar! Feghouli is there! It is 1-1. This time West Ham are

:57:31.:57:35.

more denied their equalising goal. And Slaven Bilic is all smiles now.

:57:36.:57:41.

Ben Foster finally beaten. It was Lanzini here with this cracker of a

:57:42.:57:46.

shot. Foster made the save, did really well. But they Doully was

:57:47.:57:50.

there to snaffle the chance with a loose ball fell at his feet -- but

:57:51.:57:57.

Feghouli. Suddenly it is a different game with a different atmosphere.

:57:58.:58:01.

Past forward and collected. Mike Goodes saved by Foster! Lanzini

:58:02.:58:05.

couldn't quite get on the end of it before it was hacked away. West Ham

:58:06.:58:14.

close to taking the lead. Heading for a point apiece at the moment,

:58:15.:58:16.

but still time to win the game. Lanzini turning away from Yakov! Oh,

:58:17.:58:29.

it is a superb goal! Brilliant stuff. Manuel Lanzini inside the

:58:30.:58:36.

last five minutes. Lanzini turns away from Claudio Yakov and finds

:58:37.:58:44.

the bottom corner. Is this the goal that will secure all three points

:58:45.:58:48.

for West Ham today? Well, he'll be happy if it stays like this. His

:58:49.:58:52.

team behind at the break. They are not over the line yet.

:58:53.:59:01.

Bilic barking up the assistant on the near side. He is halfway down to

:59:02.:59:05.

the corner flag, Slaven Bilic. West Bromwich Albion's all here now.

:59:06.:59:20.

And West Ham will have everybody back inside their own penalty area.

:59:21.:59:25.

Ben Foster is coming up for this one, too. West Brom have to throw

:59:26.:59:30.

the lot at West Ham this here in search of a last-gasp equalising

:59:31.:59:37.

goal in added time. Oh, they've got their equaliser! Three minutes into

:59:38.:59:42.

added time! Jonny Evans was there at the far post. What a dramatic, late

:59:43.:59:49.

twist here. West Ham are almost there. But West Bromwich Albion

:59:50.:59:54.

would not lie down, they would not be beaten, and Jonny Evans, back in

:59:55.:59:58.

the team after injury, off the bench, equalises right at the end of

:59:59.:00:03.

the game. And he can't quite believe it. Watch the kit, make! And to cap

:00:04.:00:11.

it all for West Ham, Slaven Bilic has been sent off.

:00:12.:00:16.

What agitated you the most this afternoon? Everything. I'm the first

:00:17.:00:24.

one to say that it's very hard for the referees nowadays, the pace of

:00:25.:00:28.

the game and everything, contact sport. When you are on the wrong end

:00:29.:00:36.

in all the major decisions, and there were more than a few, you

:00:37.:00:43.

can't live with so many of them. I thought it was a good game, a lot of

:00:44.:00:49.

talking points. People say there is no atmosphere, but I thought it was

:00:50.:00:55.

fantastic today from both sets of supporters. First time I've been to

:00:56.:00:58.

the stadium and it was excellent. I thought we would find it difficult

:00:59.:01:03.

to hit them on a break because they have been defending a lot. Some

:01:04.:01:07.

tired legs, but we are masters of set pieces. I really rate him, he

:01:08.:01:13.

knows that, but I can't get over this. I will go home tonight and

:01:14.:01:17.

instead of having three points and being so happy before the break and

:01:18.:01:23.

everything, to have that bitter feeling, it's awful. And the referee

:01:24.:01:30.

was... Sorry for the words, nothing personal, but the referee today was

:01:31.:01:31.

awful. Slaven Bilic is not a happy bunny.

:01:32.:01:39.

He complained about a lot of decisions and we have picked out a

:01:40.:01:44.

feud. The first one we will see, you have seen them given. It doesn't

:01:45.:01:51.

look like much to me, to be honest. You do get them sometimes. You do

:01:52.:01:55.

get them. If I was Slaven Bilic I would probably want that. He tries

:01:56.:02:01.

to lay it off, and he's been bundled into. Some give it and some don't,

:02:02.:02:05.

but he has to defend better than that. It was too easy. This was the

:02:06.:02:13.

disallowed goal. Antonio coming back and pushes the keeper. We see it

:02:14.:02:17.

from the other angle. He's offside here behind the keeper. And then he

:02:18.:02:23.

actually lays hands on him. He gets this one right. Took a while but

:02:24.:02:29.

they got the right decision. That's the most important thing, you don't

:02:30.:02:33.

mind them taking their time. This one, he flicks it. Antonio gets a

:02:34.:02:39.

touch. It's irrelevant, comedy does touch it through his legs back, it's

:02:40.:02:43.

a West Brom throw, but it's not a problem. Get men behind the ball.

:02:44.:02:49.

He's really not happy there. Defending the wrong side, trying to

:02:50.:02:53.

nick in front, and then the second play. How many mistakes, where do

:02:54.:02:57.

you start? The goalkeeper is pushing. This goal has been given to

:02:58.:03:03.

Gareth McAuley and not Jonny Evans, which we can't work out. Did it come

:03:04.:03:08.

off the top of his head? Why didn't they ask Jonny Evans just then? The

:03:09.:03:15.

key is that the two West Ham centre halves are outjumped by the West

:03:16.:03:19.

Brom centre halves, simple as that. It's the pressure of management,

:03:20.:03:23.

isn't it? Two teams in the middle of the table going quite nicely as

:03:24.:03:24.

Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce said he was "in shock"

:04:40.:04:42.

after their heavy defeat to Sunderland.

:04:43.:04:43.

Could he lift his team for the difficult trip to Stoke City?

:04:44.:04:46.

COMMENTATOR: Milivojevic, deadline day signing from Olympiakos Mexes

:04:47.:05:03.

Palace debut today. And Sobhi, back from the Africa Cup of Nations.

:05:04.:05:10.

Saido Berahino is on the bench again. Palace without the injured

:05:11.:05:14.

Scott Dann but Andros Townsend starts after trouble in Stoke in a

:05:15.:05:17.

4-1 win at Selhurst Park in September. Mamadou Sakho and Jeffrey

:05:18.:05:22.

Schlupp are both on the bench. The Palace fans have taken up their full

:05:23.:05:25.

allocation and their travelling costs have been subsidised by the

:05:26.:05:32.

club. Crystal Palace have only won five of their last 47 Premier League

:05:33.:05:36.

games. But one of them was against Stoke in September when they crushed

:05:37.:05:42.

them at Selhurst Park. Decent header. Arnautovic fourstroke. Good

:05:43.:05:47.

save by Hennessey. Comes out on the far side to Sobhi. Decent effort. A

:05:48.:05:56.

very good save. Much needed, Hennessey, he didn't have one of his

:05:57.:06:00.

best games against Sunderland last week. The goal might have looked

:06:01.:06:03.

big, but Hennessey made it look smaller. Sam Allardyce has made a

:06:04.:06:09.

career out of keeping teams out of trouble, getting them out of

:06:10.:06:11.

trouble. Can he do it again? James McArthur goes to Townsend's

:06:12.:06:29.

left. Decent piece of play by Crystal Palace. Townsend. James

:06:30.:06:38.

McArthur was in there. Seem to remember he's God two goals with

:06:39.:06:42.

headers in one match earlier in the season, James McArthur, against

:06:43.:06:48.

Liverpool. -- he scored two goals. It was a good build-up. Townsend

:06:49.:06:52.

with the cross, just wide of the near post. For those who like

:06:53.:06:57.

football history, Stoke's old ground, the Victoria Ground, is only

:06:58.:07:01.

two or three minutes away from here, and it still hasn't been built on

:07:02.:07:05.

after all-day years here at the Britannia. Mark Hughes has led them

:07:06.:07:10.

to ninth, ninth and ninth again in the last three seasons. Sobhi on the

:07:11.:07:16.

run against Joel Ward. He has beaten him and Stoke City have three in the

:07:17.:07:20.

middle. Still Sobhi. Joe Allen, surely! Just recently, his

:07:21.:07:28.

finishing, the strongest point in his game in some peoples opinion,

:07:29.:07:33.

it's gone little bit awry for Joe Allen. He's missed a few chances in

:07:34.:07:36.

recent weeks and there's another one. The Egyptians Sobhi away on the

:07:37.:07:41.

left, beating Joel Ward. They have three in there. Joe Allen pulls away

:07:42.:07:43.

to the far post and heads over. Joe Allen, near post! Corner. This

:07:44.:08:06.

has been a good ten minutes for Stoke City. Martins Indi comes

:08:07.:08:13.

forward. And he came in behind Crouch. It was off the line.

:08:14.:08:17.

Possibly Andros Townsend there. Martins Indi with the header. That's

:08:18.:08:27.

the nearest we have come to a goal. Andros Townsend, guarding the

:08:28.:08:30.

left-hand post, and didn't he do well to hook that out? It wasn't

:08:31.:08:37.

easy. That's meant for Andros Townsend. Oh, yes, free kick against

:08:38.:08:47.

Shawcross. Is it a booking as well? Yes, it is. Townsend has been a

:08:48.:08:55.

handful when he's had the chance to run with the ball. Shawcross sticks

:08:56.:08:58.

out a leg, no doubt about the foul. Played nicely. Deflection, chance,

:08:59.:09:13.

oh! Benteke, perhaps should have done better with the ricochet.

:09:14.:09:19.

Townsend played the free kick short to Jason Puncheon. A couple of

:09:20.:09:23.

deflections and Benteke just couldn't get on the end of it.

:09:24.:09:28.

Pieters turned away from Zaha. Sliding tackle by Jason Puncheon.

:09:29.:09:33.

Here he is again. Good close skill from Arnautovic.

:09:34.:09:57.

He's got Sobhi in here. Joe Allen! He's put Stoke City ahead. He's

:09:58.:10:06.

something of a poacher from that position, Joe Allen. He gives Stoke

:10:07.:10:14.

the lead here. Sobhi sets up the play. Joe Allen rifles that right

:10:15.:10:19.

into the corner. Arnautovic, and then Sobhi with the assist. Joe

:10:20.:10:25.

Allen with the finish. And that is his sixth goal of the season since

:10:26.:10:32.

coming here from Liverpool. Sam Allardyce looking for an injection

:10:33.:10:33.

from Jeffrey Schlupp. Not a bad cross. That could have

:10:34.:10:47.

been the equaliser for James Tomkins. Perhaps it should have

:10:48.:10:54.

been. Good ball from James McArthur. And Tomkins volleyed over the bar.

:10:55.:11:03.

As the rain and sleet falls down, it's cold comfort for Crystal

:11:04.:11:12.

Palace, this. If there ever was a game to win ugly, today was the day.

:11:13.:11:17.

We have done that sometimes. We have slipped up and not in it as often as

:11:18.:11:21.

we should have done. Stoke playing at home in the second half, that was

:11:22.:11:25.

their only shot on target in the entire second half and it was a goal

:11:26.:11:28.

and their winner. It shows you how will we have done defensively, but

:11:29.:11:32.

in the end it's another 1-0 defeat and not the point at least that I

:11:33.:11:37.

think we deserved today. When they break through, is a great crossfield

:11:38.:11:43.

ball from Arnautovic, picking out Sobhi. Good lay off just to the side

:11:44.:11:47.

of Joe Allen who had to readjust a little bit. Good finish in the end

:11:48.:11:51.

and a goal worthy of winning a Premier League game. Got a fewer

:11:52.:11:56.

earlier in the season when I first played. Been on a bit of a drought.

:11:57.:11:59.

Thankfully stuck with me in that position and I've got one today.

:12:00.:12:03.

Hopefully can go on another run again. In terms of performance and

:12:04.:12:07.

effort from the players, they are getting better in terms of what we

:12:08.:12:10.

want to try and do. We have to keep battling on and keep believing.

:12:11.:12:14.

It's a battle. Stoke back in ninth, they have finished their the last

:12:15.:12:19.

three seasons. They know their place. When you have Crouch in the

:12:20.:12:24.

side, he's such a good target man and holds it up so well. Arnautovic,

:12:25.:12:29.

Joe Allen and Crouch linked up so well today. That was unlucky, nearly

:12:30.:12:36.

fantastic. Arnautovic now taking a chance to go beyond Peter Crouch.

:12:37.:12:40.

Crouch was brilliant again today. Six at seven, six foot eight,

:12:41.:12:44.

whatever. Joe Allen's movement was brilliant. James McArthur didn't

:12:45.:12:49.

know where he was. Both of them gambling beyond Crouchy and an

:12:50.:12:57.

unfortunate, tame effort from Arnautovic. Poor touch but he wins

:12:58.:13:04.

it back. Sobhi with Van Aanholt, and Van Aanholt has to be more aware of

:13:05.:13:10.

where Sobhi is. A great ball in from Arnautovic. He holds it up well. Joe

:13:11.:13:14.

Allen does what he has done all game, backing up the front man,

:13:15.:13:19.

finishing brilliantly. Had to readjust his step. Sixth goal of the

:13:20.:13:22.

season. They really good finish and they deserved it today. They

:13:23.:13:25.

consummate each other well, those three. Experience and cleverness and

:13:26.:13:31.

power. Palace, more resilient than they were last week but they can't

:13:32.:13:36.

buy a result. The support up to Benteke is not as good as it should

:13:37.:13:41.

be. This should be an easy lay off to him, but they get it wrong. He's

:13:42.:13:46.

laid off and goes towards the box. Townsend, get it to Van Aanholt.

:13:47.:13:50.

Good run around him, but it doesn't go to him. It's a good overlap. I

:13:51.:13:54.

feel sorry for Benteke, that's the service he was dealing with today.

:13:55.:13:59.

Worked hard today, we saw him closing down. His nearest man is

:14:00.:14:04.

Andros Townsend. Benteke could maybe get back to feet, but doesn't and

:14:05.:14:08.

it's an aimless ball over. They say they are working hard and it's

:14:09.:14:11.

getting better, but they need to do a lot more going forward. I agree.

:14:12.:14:15.

At the start of the day Middlesbrough had the worst attack

:14:16.:14:18.

in the Premier League, with just 19 goals

:14:19.:14:20.

They faced an Everton side who went goal-crazy

:14:21.:14:23.

Aitor Karanka believes that his side's defensive solidity is still

:14:24.:14:35.

the foundation on which to build survival. To radio hasn't scored

:14:36.:14:43.

from open places Christmas. One change for the hosts, as Stuani

:14:44.:14:48.

replaces Downey. Romelu Lukaku's form against Bournemouth means he

:14:49.:14:53.

registered more league goals last Saturday since Boro have since they

:14:54.:14:58.

last won a match on December 17. He just needs two more to become the

:14:59.:15:03.

club Bulls cause scorer of the Premier League. Everton will be

:15:04.:15:08.

strong favourites to emerge victorious today. Middlesbrough out

:15:09.:15:11.

of sorts, real concern they might end up back in the championship. The

:15:12.:15:17.

Grady gives chase himself. He gets there in front of... He had two

:15:18.:15:25.

options and didn't play it to either of them. Stuani got the ball, he

:15:26.:15:31.

shouldn't. You can hear the moans and groans all over the Riverside.

:15:32.:15:36.

Forshaw had options both to write on the left. He knows the significance

:15:37.:15:43.

of turning one point into three as they tried to emerge from the bottom

:15:44.:15:45.

three. Traore, he is a joy to watch. He is

:15:46.:15:56.

so bold and so willing to take a chance. And he almost finds a way

:15:57.:16:00.

through. And somehow, I think Coleman in the end got the decisive

:16:01.:16:06.

touch. Everton repel Middlesbrough. Again, Traore. Willingness to take

:16:07.:16:10.

players on, whatever the circumstances. And he is willed on

:16:11.:16:14.

by all of the Middlesbrough supporters, every time he gets near

:16:15.:16:19.

the goal. It's a good game, this. Middlesbrough suddenly hanging in

:16:20.:16:28.

there. It's a little bit short. Davies pounces. And Lukaku has a run

:16:29.:16:31.

through on goal! And it's a great save by Valdes. I think that most in

:16:32.:16:34.

the ground were expecting that from a Lukaku would tuck that one away.

:16:35.:16:40.

Out of virtually nothing, it was Davies winning the ball in midfield,

:16:41.:16:45.

and immediately setting Lukaku away. Now there's got his angle is exactly

:16:46.:16:51.

right. And he denies the Premier League's top scorer -- Victor Valdes

:16:52.:16:56.

got his angles right. Space out wide for Coleman. In towards Lookman on

:16:57.:17:05.

the far side. And Victor Valdes came out very, very quickly. Kept alive

:17:06.:17:11.

by Baines. Barkley has it. Lookman again. And again, Lookman. The shot

:17:12.:17:18.

was charged down. And Lookman has very, very quick feet, the way in

:17:19.:17:22.

which he transferred it from one to the other just opened it up for him

:17:23.:17:27.

after Coleman's Ross reached him on the far side. Good block by Valdes.

:17:28.:17:32.

Second time he has been needed after earlier denying Lukaku. Two very

:17:33.:17:37.

different needs for the points. Middlesbrough to get away from

:17:38.:17:41.

trouble. Everton to get themselves European qualification. Fabio.

:17:42.:17:47.

Traore has definitely switched sides in the second period. Here it comes

:17:48.:17:51.

from the left, and goes with his right! Just beyond the post. Well,

:17:52.:17:57.

he just continues to give Everton headache after headache. They have

:17:58.:18:03.

scored just three goals in the last seven games. Four occasions they

:18:04.:18:07.

have failed to hit the opponents' net. They are the league's lowest

:18:08.:18:14.

scorers, with just 19 goals. Well, Baines with a very strange looking

:18:15.:18:18.

through. And indeed, it is a foul from. And Middlesbrough get a bit of

:18:19.:18:27.

a bonus. Well, they have won a corner. If Middlesbrough should get

:18:28.:18:30.

the opening goal they will be able to trace that all the way back to a

:18:31.:18:34.

very strange from from Leighton Baines. I think it slipped out of

:18:35.:18:39.

his arms. -- a very strange throw. The header has gone, it is off the

:18:40.:18:45.

line by Baines. They very nearly did take advantage. Gibson turns away

:18:46.:18:48.

disappointed that Everton have a player on each post. At least on the

:18:49.:18:52.

post that mattered. And it was Leighton Baines. It is a foul day on

:18:53.:18:58.

the side. But it could still be a very important one for

:18:59.:18:58.

Middlesbrough. Barkley, on towards Lookman, great

:18:59.:19:09.

opportunity, and another good save by Valdes. That's the third time

:19:10.:19:13.

that he has blocked an Everton attempt. I think all three were with

:19:14.:19:20.

his legs. They are on an excellent run, Everton. And they are certainly

:19:21.:19:23.

looking at the teams above them and wondering if they might be able to

:19:24.:19:30.

catch them. Traore with the term. Gestede, on it goes to Chambers. And

:19:31.:19:36.

a terrific header and the brilliant save! And Gestede so close to

:19:37.:19:41.

getting his first goal for Middlesbrough. And he would have

:19:42.:19:45.

done, but for the outstanding goalkeeping of Joel Robles.

:19:46.:19:50.

Middlesbrough are unable to score again. We played really well. They

:19:51.:19:59.

were really good team in good form. We had chances to score within a

:20:00.:20:04.

minute of the game, we didn't concede one goal. Once again I have

:20:05.:20:09.

to say well done to the players. It is funny you should get 61 week and

:20:10.:20:14.

number next. It sometimes happens in football? Of course it is different,

:20:15.:20:18.

you can't compare one week to the next one. It is also about

:20:19.:20:22.

Middlesbrough. They are defending well, they are strong, it is not

:20:23.:20:26.

easy to create a lot of chances. We had some, but we didn't score. How

:20:27.:20:30.

do you assess where you were and where you can be going in the next

:20:31.:20:35.

few weeks? I think we need to keep going and keep trust in us. Again,

:20:36.:20:40.

we are playing against a really good team, the last three or four games,

:20:41.:20:46.

they have been with Tottenham and Everton today. We have competed

:20:47.:20:52.

against every single team. I think we should have won one or two, but

:20:53.:20:58.

we are playing against these teams, I think we're playing in this way,

:20:59.:21:06.

we can beat them stop like they are compete in the fight. Or a struggle

:21:07.:21:09.

to score goals, while? Well, they have got the best events of record

:21:10.:21:15.

outside the top six -- why do Boro struggle to score goals. This is why

:21:16.:21:18.

they don't score enough goals, especially at home. They are so set

:21:19.:21:22.

on having the good shape, which is fine. This is in the first two

:21:23.:21:26.

minutes, trying to have the full press but not really convinced by

:21:27.:21:30.

it. Easy for Everton to play out, dominated the first half in terms of

:21:31.:21:34.

possession. Generally there feeling is, retreat, get men behind the ball

:21:35.:21:38.

and be hard to beat. I understand that, it is a fine balance. If they

:21:39.:21:43.

stay playing this way, you will say well done. They're not playing

:21:44.:21:49.

Barcelona, no disrespect to Everton, they did play well last week. You

:21:50.:21:53.

can be too respectful. They did entertain the fans last week. This

:21:54.:21:57.

is Middlesbrough, nine players on one quarter of the pitch trying to

:21:58.:22:01.

get the ball back. All working hard, good distances. When you do win the

:22:02.:22:06.

ball back, where do you go? You can't go anywhere, you have one guy

:22:07.:22:10.

up front. It keeps coming back. They are scared to commitment forward.

:22:11.:22:20.

Nearly a good ball to the striker, but you want somebody trying to get

:22:21.:22:23.

something to it. It was too easy for Everton at first. Middlesbrough got

:22:24.:22:26.

better on the second half. Everton a bit flat. They scored 61 week and

:22:27.:22:29.

didn't score the next, they should have saved one. That is Everton this

:22:30.:22:35.

season, great one week and not good the next. That was a little bit

:22:36.:22:38.

flat. We're just about out of time. Ian

:22:39.:22:46.

Ambani, thank you. Before we leave you, let's have a look as we always

:22:47.:22:50.

do at the Premier League table. Tottenham's defeat ensure that

:22:51.:22:55.

Chelsea remain nine points clear. There is little to choose between

:22:56.:22:59.

the chasing pack. Arsenal and Liverpool move above Manchester

:23:00.:23:02.

City, who play Bournemouth on Monday. Manchester United stay

:23:03.:23:09.

sixth. Southampton are the only other side in the bottom half to

:23:10.:23:14.

collect points, their win list them to places to 11. Let's see what the

:23:15.:23:20.

Sunday papers have to say. Sergio Aguero feels under appreciated at

:23:21.:23:23.

Manchester City and will leave this summer, according to the Son. The

:23:24.:23:29.

Times says Murray is here Pochettino has all but conceded that

:23:30.:23:31.

Tottenham's title hopes is over. Manchester United are just two

:23:32.:23:40.

points of second.
