COMMENTATOR: Just brilliant, just brilliant!
COMMENTATOR: What a turn, what a goal!
COMMENTATOR: Look at that. Oh, look at that!
We're down to the final four in the FA Cup and the last eight
in the Champions League, but there are 20 Premier League
clubs who've got plenty to play for between now and May.
And we've reunited Alan Shearer and Graeme Le Saux.
It's now 22 years since they won the title with Blackburn!
We begin at the Hawthorns and, with the race for Champions League
places intensifying, Arsenal travelled to
The home side, managed by Tony Pulis, seemed sure
Even victory here will not be a enough to lift Arsenal back into the
top four. But Arsene Wenger has seen his team lose three of the last four
Premier League games. For once Champions League qualification is no
guarantee. West Brom have lost their way since reaching the safety of 40
points. Tony Pulis has urged his side to not let the season Peter
out. Chris Brunt and Salomon Rondon recalled today. Yacob and
Robson-Kanu drop to the bench. Tony Pulis operating with a five-man
midfield. Our store with two changes from the side that beat Lincoln in
the FA Cup. Monreal replacing Kieran Gibbs at left-back, Danny Welbeck
coming in for Giroud, and will play through the centre with top scorer
Alexis Sanchez on the left. Mesut Ozil is ruled out through injury.
Arsenal's away record this season is nothing to write home about, just
six wins on their travels. Recently on the road they have been awful,
losing four of their last six. The Cameroon defender Allan Nyom
stepping forward. On he goes. What a run. Rondon was waiting for the
cross. Fantastic run from Allan Nyom. Taking on all comers and
beating them all. Having done so much graphed, so much hard work, all
that was lacking was the past to pick out Rondon, who would have had
a tap in. Early warning for Arsenal. Livermore has made a good run
through the centre. Its McClean with little more still there if he needs.
McClean goes himself. Straight at Petr Cech. Good counterattack from
West Brom. Chris Brunt fed it into the path of James McClean who tried
to beat Cech by power. First corner of the game. Bright start, 12
minutes gone. Chadli with it. Headed in. It's Craig Dawson whose scores.
West Bromwich Albion, who have this reputation of being so dangerous
from set pieces, have scored another one. Dawson was completely unmarked
as he ran to attack that. Not sure whether Ramsey should have kept an
eye on him. Outjumped Koscielny, and from that close in, he wasn't going
to miss. The pressure is beginning to mount again on Arsene Wenger.
Sanchez is completely unmarked. What a chance. Took his time and finds
the net. Superb response from Arsenal. What a cool, cool finish
from the Chilean. His 22nd of the season, Albion caught napping.
Sanchez couldn't believe the amount of time he had. Time to get his feet
right and left it high into the roof of the net with Ben Foster
committed. A brilliant finish from Sanchez. Just what he needed.
And its level up in the skies as well. One banner once Arsene Wenger
to go and the other one wants him to stay.
Sanchez is on his way again, picking out a Ramsey in the box. Ramsey's
shot. Great save from Foster. Can Walcott help it home? Great block
from Allan Nyom who eventually clears his lines. A lovely turn and
spinner from Ramsey. And Allan Nyom kept out of Walcott.
McClean eager to chase. Petr Cech is not moving well, has thrown the ball
out of play. Hobbling awkwardly as he cleared that. Embrace for David
Ospina, handshake for his manager. Off to the treatment room he goes.
Rondon chasing, Monreal is back with him. The Spaniard was determined for
Arsenal. Monreal does well to hold up the
attacker. Chris Brunt crosses. Rondon got in big and above
Koscielny, but couldn't steer it on goal. Hal Robson-Kanu, the Welsh
international, to come on. And number nine, Salomon Rondon. Tony
Pulis making a big decision. Horrible misjudgement from Mustafi.
Hal Robson-Kanu is in behind. Fletcher getting forward. Chris
Brunt behind McClean at the moment. Chadli calls for it on the edge.
Here is the Belgian. It is clipped by David Ospina. And it's in!
Stabbed home by Hal Robson-Kanu less than two minutes after coming off
the bench. Monreal leads the Arsenal protest. They feel as though there
was an Albion player offside in the midst of all that. Neil Swarbrick
now deep in conversation with his assistant on the far side. I think
they have called that right. I think the Albion player who was offside
was not interfering with play, because all the Arsenal players were
in front of him, and he did not touch the ball. Although he's
offside when the ball is prodded home, he's not interfering with
play. Horrendous descending from Arsenal. They can protest all they
like, but they are behind again. -- horrendous defending. All thanks to
Hal Robson-Kanu. Arsenal began the day five points outside the top
four. Well defended by Allan Nyom who chases his own clearance. Good
battling from Walcott. His tenacity has brought opportunity may be for
Arsenal as they win a corner. It hits the bar! Albion get it
clear. Danny Welbeck against the crossbar. After that, Mustafi went
down having been caught by Robson-Kanu.
Good interception by Evans. Chris Brunt looks for Robson-Kanu, who is
goal side of Mustafi. David Ospina is all over the place initially
again. Good block. In goes Chadli! Blocked on the line by Mustafi. The
danger still isn't over. Chris Brunt takes it on and lifts it over.
Mustafi got hopelessly caught out. Ospina came, went home, then made a
good block and almost brings down Chadli. His shot was superbly
blocked by Mustafi. Arsenal living on their nerves. Just about get away
with it. West Brom on the move again. So easy
as they pick their way forward. It's behind for the corner. West Brom's
first goal came from a corner. The goal-scorer, Dawson, in the mix
again. A wicked delivery, and it's in! It's a second for Craig Dawson!
If you don't learn your lesson is, you have no right to finish in the
top four of the Premier League. Terrific delivery, but who on earth
in yellow is keeping an eye on Craig Dawson? Oxlade-Chamberlain saw him
come and let him go. And that's the outcome. Defensively, that's
shocking. What a master plan Tony Pulis has put together today. Nine
major trophies in his 21 years at the helm at Arsenal Football Club,
but is his time up in 2017? A typical Premier League game
between a team who tries to play and a who defends well. They were
focused, determined, produced a top-level performance physically.
And they caught us on the set pieces and had one break. That made the
difference. If you look at what the players have achieved with what we
have got, that's absolutely fantastic. You will always have runs
of games where you don't pick up points. We are no different to
anyone else outside the top six. The lads have worked so hard in all the
games, never giving anything but their best. It's about time Dawson
scored some goals! It's important to chip in when we can. The delivery
was great into the box and it's a strength of hours. Great performance
and important to bounceback and we all put in a great shift. Massive
three points for us. It leads is in a unique situation that we haven't
had before. It means as well that we face a big problem, to regroup and
find resources to sort out to deal with the problem. That will demand
some togetherness and some serious challenges, because we play against
City at home in the next after the break. That could be another big
game for us. STUDIO: Marvellous win for West Brom but Arsenal were out
thought and outfought. Before we get onto Arsenal, West Brom bullied
Arsenal all over the park. They were much, much better in every position
and deserve a lot of credit for doing that. Onto Arsenal. There has
been a lot of chat from the media and pundits about Arsene Wenger's
future. Not a lot spoken by his players. His players spoke today in
that game. Judging by that performance and recent performances,
they don't want him in that job. Arsene Wenger will have looked at
his players today and asked for a reaction. Said, come on, guys. I've
been criticised Tomer Hemed from pillar to post. Give me something
today. -- criticised, hammered. They were embarrassing apart from
Sanchez, I thought. West Brom were brilliant, set up to counterattack
asked all time after time. Arsenal were so open it's unbelievable.
Bellerin is meant to be one of the quickest players in the league, but
he mustn't let McClean run that way with so much space. A ball in, ball
back and through. Into the back four with ease. Decent save from Petr
Cech. They try a crossfield ball and is look at how open Arsenal are. The
lack of support in front of defenders. When you lose the ball
you have to do see danger signs, smell the danger to get the ball
away. There is nothing there. One pass down the line and all of a
sudden West Brom are in the 18-yard box having a pop at goal. A long
ball up and they win the first ball. The players switch off,
Oxlade-Chamberlain, Koscielny, Monreal. Fletcher in so much space.
And it's a brilliant save from Petr Cech. Second half, same thing
happens time and time again. This is on the edge of the West Brom box.
One pass, take a touch, pick your head up, and the ball in behind.
It's so simple, it's embarrassing. One against one with the goalkeeper.
I could have shown another three or four times that happened. It was
incredible. By contrast, West Brom were compact, organised disciplined
and effective. They know their identity and set up a deeper blocked
to counter Arsenal. But all the hard work is done on the training ground.
It's set up between this back four and a bank of five in front of them.
You have Livermore and Chris Brunt working together. Livermore pointing
to Rondon to drop in. As soon as he loses it he drops back in. He knows
his role and the space he has to fill. This frustrated Arsenal, who
played into their hands and didn't show creativity. They tried to get
wide but you can see the banks working across the pitch. It kept
going. Fletcher was really in control of that midfield. He's
pointing around, has a word with Dawson. Doesn't forget his own
responsibility. He is leading the team. When the ball goes to an area
where he needs to close down, off he goes and Livermore provides cover.
Sanchez tries some tricks to get down the side but can't get in
there. He rushes his pass and West Brom get the ball back. You had this
pattern. It's hard work. You have to do understand what the plan is and
work as a team. The commitment, communication and effort, and then
you get the reward. West Brom enjoyed this part of the game. It
sets them up nicely. Arsenal are a broken team by the end. They can't
complete several passes. West Brom set-pieces and Arsenal
couldn't cope? They couldn't at all. Tony Pulis did his homework. They
like zonal marking. This is like watching an under-10s game the way
Arsenal defend here. No leadership, no characters. Dawson, free run in.
Once he has a run on thes Arsenal defenders. . I don't know what
Ramsey is doing whether he he is blocking them. Six or seven Arsenal
players. 6 foot plus, four go for the same ball. He gets a run, it's
embarrassing. No way to defend like that and expect to win a football
match. The third goal, from the other side of the pitch. Seven
Arsenal players defending. You have a situation where you have players
meant to be man marking, they are not. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and
Ramsey there. Other players in the penalty area that are meant to be
zonal marking. Which means you stay in your space. Bellerin outside the
post. You should be inside covering the goal. You are doing nothing
outside the post. You see five, six Arsenal players getting drawn out of
their zones, sucked into an area. By the end of it, any one of three West
Brom players could have scored that goal. It's so basic. Have you to
work. They are scoring that many goals, 14 Premier League goals from
corners, West Brom, more than any other team in a long shot. Hardly
surprising it's come. Well, at his post-match press
conference, Arsene Wenger was asked If you are to announce a decision on
your future will that change the attitude of the fans who are
protesting flying planes in the sky? Don't worry. I know what I will do
in my future. You will soon know. I see. Very soon. He divides opinion
amongst Arsenal fans. Even their aeroplanes can't agree, can they? Is
from that,, do you read anything, does that suggest he is going to go?
I read he is going to go. He looks a broken man, he does. If he's got his
contract there, and he is saying, I know my future and he hasn't signed
that contract, that suggests to me he's going. I agree. OK. Fair
enough. Next, Stoke City against Chelsea,
who were beginning to look Could anything stop Antonio Conte's
team, as they started the day 10 points clear at the top
of the table. COMMENTATOR: Arnason returns having
missed the draw at Manchester City through illness. Diouf drops the
bench. Antonio Conte prior to this has made 14 changes all service. He
can't called call on Hazard because of injury. There is a recall for
Pedro with eight goals in his last 12 games. A blustery afternoon. A
draw against Manchester City last time out the only point that Stoke
have managed against any of the top five so far this season. That's
terrific from Costa. There is space for Alonso to attack. Pedro and
Willian in the penalty area. Foul by Arnautovic. A Chelsea free-kick.
Set play opportunity for the league leaders. Willian's delivery. Tried
to catch out Lee Grant at his near-post, and succeeding. Quick
thinking from Willian. Disappointing from Lee Grant. The league leaders
are in front. Knew what he was doing. He saw the gap and Lee Grant
will be disappointed with that. At his near-post. Got across, got both
hands to it, but couldn't keep it out. Willian scored twice against
Stoke on New Year's Eve. He hadn't scored since then, he has now. His
team are in front again. 13 minutes gone, Stoke 0, Chelsea 1. Willian's
touch. Costa. Tried to get the free-kick there and
he's furious he didn't. He's been booked for dissent. He is bubbling
at the moment, Diego Costa. He now has to be careful for the remaining
74 minutes. He felt there was a foul there by Martins Indi. There wasn't.
Oh, dear. Then his reaction earned him the yellow card. Costa. Matic.
Bardsley's challenge wasn't timed. It's a free-kick to Chelsea. Was
always committed here, Bardsley. Willian this time to Pedro. Moses.
Is Alonso, onside, straight at Lee Grant, who managed to keep it out.
Well-worked from Chelsea. Alonso's run, unmarked, onside, on his weaker
foot. He's scored in three of his last six Premier League games.
Plenty for Mark Hughes' thoughts now. Arnautovic. Walters did well.
Alonso penalised, Stoke free-kick. To Arnautovic, good cross. Kante in
the way. Stoke's first corner of the game. Quick thinking from Phil
Bardsley. Good movement from Arnautovic and first time cross. An
excellent reading of the situation from N'Golo Kante. Allen to deliver
the corner. Until comes Martins Indi, but he's offside. He doesn't
know yet, but it won't count. He's celebrating. Anthony Taylor is
coming over to the referee's assistant, just wants to clarify the
situation. It's a push. The goal has been ruled out.
He saw the foul. There is a push there on Azpilicueta by Saido
Berahino that the referee's assistant saw and that is why that
Stoke goal doesn't count. Pieters. That's gone Stoke's way. Can Stoke
ask Chelsea a question here? Lifted in by Pieters. Courtois, a penalty.
The foul on Jonathan Walters by Gary Cahill. Stoke have a penalty. I
didn't think there was too much in that. Gary Cahill, a little nudge on
Walters. Walters himself will have the opportunity to level it up. Here
he comes. Emphatic penalty. Stoke City are back on terms. No
clean sheet for Chelsea and Contety. Cahill penalised for the foul on
Walters. Who duly despatched the spot-kick, high above Courtois. It's
Stoke 1, Chelsea 1. Alonso's throw. That looked a bag one on Diego Costa
this time. Antonio Conte leaping in the air to show his disgust at this
one. It was Bardsley, actually. Phil Bardsley has gone in the referee's
book. Costa is still down. Welcome to Stoke, Antonio. Kante. Now
Willian on the burst, Costa and Martins Indi going down off the
ball. Then Pieters taking down Pedro. That will earn him a yellow
card and a Chelsea free-kick. Bruno Martins Indi also shown the yellow
card there. Willian, Alonso and Luiz behind the Chelsea free-kick. It's
to be Alonso. Well, Lee Grant was beaten. Chelsea a whisker away from
regaining the lead. Oh and Diouf reacting to Alonso's challenge.
Anti-tailor in to defuse that situation. Terrific strike from
Alonso. Goalkeeper beaten all end up. Back off the crossbar. Fabregas.
Willian. Here is Pedro. Well kept out by Lee Grant. That was like
flicking a switch for Chelsea. Well stopped by Grant. Stoke have dug
deep, but they haven't seen it out yet. Pieters. He was under pressure
from Loftus-Cheek. That's what forced the error. It's a Chelsea
corner. Fabregas with it. David Luiz with the header. It came back to
Cahill. The man who gave away the penalty at that end in the first
half has restored Chelsea's lead in the second-half with less than four
minutes to go. He scores against Stoke for the second time this
season and they are back in front. Well, David Luiz's header was a tame
one. It was the intervention from Pieters that caused it. Stuck his
leg out and it came straight back to Cahill, who couldn't miss. Stoke
frustrated. Chelsea absolutely delighted. Look what it means on the
Chelsea bench. They have done what potential champions do. Azpilicueta
to pick out Pedro. Costa wants it. Costa's got it. Costa has hit the
woodwork. We've seen the good, bad and ugly of Diego Costa today. That
was another bit of very good. Azpilicueta. Loftus-Cheek.
Determined to have a go. Shawcross with the block. Chelsea with the
corner. The last-minute of stoppage-time. Ryan Shawcross just
needs to maintain his control here. He's been given a yellow card for
time wasting now, that's for Fabregas. Paperwork for Anthony
Taylor tomorrow. Here's Loftus-Cheek. A foul on Fabregas.
Phil Bardsley is one of those already on a yellow card. Stoke's
misery is compounded with a red for Phil Bardsley in the last-minute of
stoppage-time. Fabregas had beaten Joe Allen. Bardsley came across.
Nowhere near the ball. It's important to find a direct way to
win be because if you come here, against Stoke, and you think that
you will win without fight, for sure you lose. But we were prepared for
this type of game and I think we showed this. We ran them really
close today and we asked questions of them. In fairness,
champions-elect and players that have won championships they know how
to handle those moments. Cred credit to them. I didn't think they
deserved to win today, to be perfectly honest. I thought a draw
would be a fair result. Champion teams keep going and make things
happen for themselves. That is what they have been able to do all
season, in fairness. We need to take 21-points to win the league. Yeah,
we must think this, me and my players, because there are ten games
to go. But this season isn't finished. No, not quite. Chelsea's
march towards that title shows no site of abating? Nearly there.
It was a scrappy game, no Eden Hazard, but they showed great
experience, how to see a game out. They showed a great will to win and
a will to be champions. They dug it out in the end. It was Gary Cahill
who was in the right place at the right time. The last few minutes.
David Luiz does well to keep the ball alive. Poor mistake from
Pieters. He gets a few goals. He does. It was such a big win today,
so important, and even the players will think how huge it was. The
manager, great reaction from all of them, the way they celebrated at the
end, was pretty telling. Very close, Chelsea 's comfortable and confident
in Antonio Conte's Systems. They work on it every day in training.
That system, the 343. They don't mind the physical side of the game.
We saw that with Costa. They can drop into a five when they need to,
under pressure they can bring the wingbacks in. But when they go
forward, when the game is scrappy they have natural width with Alonso
and Moses out why. And they are clinical. When they get a chance
they take it or hit the target. 22 games, won 19, only lost one. And no
Hazard today. A couple of contentious decisions in the first
half. Anthony Taylor gets this one right. It's a foul from Berahino on
Azpilicueta. He shoves him there, goes to check with his assistant to
make sure it's right and it's the correct decision. But it's a clear
push from Berahino to stop him going to head the ball. A few minutes
later, I think that's on his mind. He wasn't 100% sure it's correct. He
gives a penalty for that. There has never been a push there. It clips
his heel a little bit, but they're -- there's no way it's a penalty.
Walters comedy goes down, but he's not claiming he has been pushed. --
Walters, he goes down. Two down, five matches
still to come. Leicester City's heroics in beating
Sevilla left them as England's only representative in the quarter-finals
of the Champions League. But this weekend was all
about the battle to stay They faced West Ham
at the London Stadium, COMMENTATOR: Seeking one more for 50
Premier League goals, Andy Carroll hasn't scored here at the London
Stadium since is a wonder goal against Crystal Palace more than two
months ago. That was also the last time the Hammers won here. Sam Byram
replaces the injured Mark Noble. Kouyate moves to midfield and Andre
Ayew is preferred to Feghouli. Injury to skipper Wes Morgan
Albrighton tried to find Drinkwater, who won it. Tries to find Vardy.
Good from Leicester. A noticeable spring in their step! Did Vardy get
a touch on that or is it Mahrez's goal? I think it might be the
latter. 1-0 to Leicester and that's the most important stat of the lot.
We are only in the fifth minute. The cross came in with whip and paste
from Mahrez. It goes straight into the back of the net, I think. Vardy
tried to dart across it. Riyad Mahrez with his ninth of the season,
fifth in the Premier League. The Shakespeare era is off to another
bonus start. He will know there was an element of good fortune about the
goal, but his side are behind again here. It has not been home sweet
home at all for West Ham at the new stadium. Winston Reid concedes a
free kick, which Roger East is adamant was a foul on Okazaki.
Leicester haven't lost any of the last five meetings against West Ham.
Certainly started positively here and it's 2-0! Robert Huth
unremarked, the flag stays down. Leicester, within seven minutes, R
two clear already. This is a bit of Comedy of Errors from a West Ham
perspective. Robert Huth in acres of space. Robert Huth couldn't mess,
and Robert Huth didn't miss. West Ham are absolutely gobsmacked.
Leicester City are on their way to four wins out of four under the new
manager. Antonio fouled. Drinkwater is
penalised because of this challenge on the back of Antonio. Not too much
doubt about it. This is their first sight of the
West Ham goal, really. And they have scored from it! They have built the
platform necessary to get them back in the game courtesy of Lanzini. We
have a game on here. A delightful free kick from Lanzini. Nothing
Schmeichel could do about it. That side of his net was guarded by the
wall but Lanzini has got an absolutely -- that absolutely
perfectly. Good play from Leicester. West Ham
happy to clear for the corner. Albrighton had made a great burst to
get involved in that move. Robert Huth is in there. Benalouane
is in there. It might reach one of them. And it reaches Jamie Vardy,
who restores the Leicester 2-goal advantage. Only his second away goal
of the season. With West Ham finding their way back into the game,
Leicester once again wrestle control of it. He hasn't been anywhere near
as prolific as he was last season. But he has restored Leicester's
2-goal advantage. In a half full of incident, full of chances, it's also
been full of goals. It's been an absolute dream start for him. Three
games in charge and three victories. But can he crack this away hoodoo?
They haven't won away from home since last April.
Lanzini. That was travelling. Just beyond the post, though. Sure
Michael appears to pull his arms away, confident it's going beyond
and not into his goal. And he was right -- Schmeichel appears.
Mahrez on towards Vardy. Outcomes Randolph and Vardy scoops it beyond
him and out of play. Vardy didn't quite get the connection that he was
hoping for. Good tackle by Ndidi on Antonio.
Lanzini has been fouled. Free kick to West Ham. Okazaki doesn't like
the decision. Looks a little bit too far around but you never know with
Lanzini. -- too far out. Lanzini lining it up to the same corner.
Schmeichel parries it away but I think it might have clipped the
outside of the post anyway. Schmeichel makes sure and you can
understand why he does. Nodded back by Carroll and turned in
by Ayew. West Ham are back in it. Carroll nods it back. Ayew thumps it
into the roof of the net. Back post corner. Carroll nods it back, Ayew
helps it in and Schmeichel can't help it. West Ham once again have
brought a 2-goal deficit down to one. And it's very much a contest.
Andre Ayew celebrates his fourth goal for West Ham.
Jose Fonte looking towards Carroll. Got a touch on it. Headed away by
Ndidi. Masuaku. Antonio. Carroll tries to get there.
Was it over the line? No. A good look at the watch from the referee
to check. Schmeichel managed to scoop it out. Does well with this,
almost over the line when he makes the save, but the ball wasn't.
Here's Antonio. Brilliant again from Antonio. Going straight at
Leicester. Ayew is on the side! He's missed it! What a chance. And he
knows it. Outstanding from Antonio. Ayew onside. The goal was at his
mercy but he puts it over the bar. The comeback should have been
completed right there and then. It wasn't, and Leicester are still
holding the advantage. Antonio does well. And it's another
West Ham corner. Prowling around his technical area, looking and hoping
and probably expecting his side will equalise, such is their head of
steam at the moment. Carroll leaks. An almighty scramble. Kouyate
couldn't quite turn it in. Carroll there again. Deflection straight
into the arms of Schmeichel. It's a siege. It really is a siege. But
Leicester just about managing to keep West Ham out. All the agonies
and ecstasies of management have all come his way today.
Here's Ayew. It's good from Ayew, and he's fouled, a free kick just in
front of the D. Ayew went straight at Chilwell. A combination of P and
Ndidi brought him down. Probably Ndidi the man who felled him.
Snodgrass is hovering over this, looking for his first for West Ham.
If this goes in the roof will rattle at the London Stadium. Deflection.
Carroll. Great save from Schmeichel. Unbelievable goalkeeping. He had no
right to save it. Everybody looking at the flag. It didn't go up.
Schmeichel, well, it was like a penalty save, only in some ways it
was harder. That's unbelievable. He's learned that from his dad, no
question. I think we started off really good, got the goals and got
in front. But it was to the backs to the wall in the second half. Really
pleased to get the result at the end of the day. In this league you can't
afford to be 3-1 down and then turn the game around. But Leicester
showed quality and character. -- but the lads showed quality and
character. We created more than enough chances at least to get a
point. Can you sum up the week for you personally and for the team. It
must have been incredible. On the outside you try to keep calm and
collected because it's important the players stay focused. But I'm
immensely proud of the results we've got. Absolutely outstanding save at
the end. What was going through your head? Please hit me! It's one of
them. It bounces to him and you try to make yourself as big as you can
and hope that it hits you. Nine times out of ten it doesn't. This
time luck was on my side. Kasper Schmeichel, those two saves were
astonishing. He's probably the one Leicester player whose form has
dipped this season. His performance was pivotal to Leicester winning
their first away game of the season. He was magnificent, a Man of the
Match performance without doubt. He's been in incredible form. He has
been for a while. He's worked hard. Crosses and balls into the box.
These saves, Andy Carroll does everything right. Thank goodness for
the goal decision system, because that left hand, the way he claws
that ball away is incredible. He has to move his feet to get there. This
is even better. Point-blank range. You could say Andy Carroll should
score, but he manages to bring out his arm and punch it away. His old
man did that time and time again. It was so reminiscent of him coming out
there with a big strong hand. Superb save. For West Ham, Lanzini
continues to impress. This was a fantastic game of football. Both
teams played well, but now that Payet has gone, Lanzini has stepped
up and decided he wants to be the man. He had the complete midfield
performance today. He's happy to make angles for people and get
forward. He always wants the ball. Plays it simple, keeps it moving.
The creates a block in front of his backline, but when he wins it he
gets forward and gets his head up. This is fantastic, winning the ball
back, doing his job for the team. Round the corner, gets the ball
back, a pass forward again. Keeps going forward and he wants the ball.
It's a joy to have a player in the team who always wants the ball in
tight situations. Turns defence into attack. Comes off the line. Moves
position a lot. He draws people towards him which creates space for
his team-mates. This is the second free kick. He is a long way out, but
it's such a vicious free kick, forces Schmeichel to make the save.
This is a wonderful strike. Keeps it simple, lines up with the ball,
knows when he wants to put it and Schmeichel is rooted to the spot.
Perfect free kick from a short distance.
Everton hosted Hull having been rocked by the news that
Romelu Lukaku has rejected the offer of a new contract.
Meanwhile, the visitors were focused on Premier League survival
and started the day two points from safety.
COMMENTATOR: Two years left on his contract for Romelu Lukaku, that
could equate to 50 odd goals, put a price on that. Everton hope they
won't have to. Victory today would take them above Manchester United
for now and maybe nearer their aim of European football. Hull's aim is
simply to survive. Everton loanee is not available. Davies returns having
recovered from a hamstring injury. Getting on to it here, Clucas. Has
support. Clucas inside the penalty. Markovic at the back post. Here's
Javier Hernandez. Ashley Williams made the block for Everton. Hull
have started in a sprightly fashion here. Leighton Baines gave him a
shove with his right hand. Accurately brace his birthday next
Tuesday, Ronald Koeman. He turns 54 -- celebrates. The referee didn't
spot that shirt pull. Everton so strong at home. They have only lost
one of their 14 home Premier League games so far this season.
Barkley, looking for the run of Davies, who is onside. Davies,
Dominic Calvert-Lewin! What a lovely way to get off the mark. Dominic
Calvert-Lewin, his first Everton goal, put on a plate for him. Lovely
run by Davies. Great awareness from Davies. A confident finish from
another promising young Blue. Everton 1, Hull City 0. It was an
Everton move which started with Morgan Schneiderlin pulling the
shirt of Hernandez. Then seconds later Everton had scored. Here's
Barry. Not the ball Lukaku was looking for from Barry. He is making
that point now. No cloud reaction to Lukaku. Given his failure to sign a
new contract, which is on the table for him. Clucas, just too high.
Great chance for Sam Clucas. Everton off the hook here. William's
hesitation, uncertainty, and Clucas just couldn't get it down. Good
running here. Clucas couldn't control it. The attack has broken
down. The counter-attack is building. Barkley to Lukaku.
Lukaku, still going, still going. Ignored Dominic Calvert-Lewin who
was possibly better placed to his left hand side. Once he found space,
he had eyes only for the goal. Davies. That's dangerous. He got
there. Clucas stretching. Lovely touch. He wants it from Baines.
Baines drilling it away to Lukaku. Brilliant ball. Lukaku, onside.
Lukaku. He goes for goal, again. A really good save by Jakupovic. Great
ball by Leighton Baines. Lukaku his only other option was Barkley. Not
impossible that they could leave Goodison Park with something, Hull
City. Into the side-netting from Andrew Robertson. He knows he might
have done more with that. Took it first time and didn't hit it cleanly
at all. Here's Barkley. Davies. A foot in again. That is a foul. Tom
Huddlestone is off. Straight red card for Tom Huddlestone. That makes
it difficult for Hull City. The referee couldn't be closer to it. He
misses the ball, straight into his standing foot. It's dangerous. Hull
City will play the last 17 minutes of this game with 10-men. Tom Davies
making way, Enner Valencia coming on. Valencia having finally broken
his duck as an Everton player in 3-2 defeat at White Hart Lane at the
beginning of the month. Williams, Valencia. Oh, beautifully back into
his path. Enner Valencia - 2-0 Everton. Hull City carved open by a
Valencia-Lukaku combination. The substitute, who has only been on the
pitch for a matter of moment helps himself to a second goal in Everton
Blue. Beautiful dink return from Lukaku. Smartly taken from Valencia.
That should seal three points for Everton. Valencia. Oh, good ball,
Lukaku. 20th league goal of the season for Romelu Lukaku. The first
Everton striker to reach that goal since Gary Lineker in 1986. Lineker
didn't stop at 20. I doubt whether Lukaku will either. Good ball by
Valencia. Typical finish by Lukaku. The scoreline a little harsh on Hull
City, but it is Everton 3, Hull 0. Short. It could be a fourth. Lukaku,
it surely will be. Elabdellaoui with the mistake. Lukaku with another
goal. At the end of a week in which he has made headlines at Goodison
Park by rejecting the richest contract a club has ever offered a
player, but he soaks up the love anyway with two late goals. It's
4-0. I think the final result today didn't reflect what happened on the
pitch. It's too harsh that red card. OK, that killed the game for Hull. I
think they played well. They make it really tough. Everton today was not
at the best. I saw one game until 70 minutes and after another game. We
didn't deserve this result or the decision. Until then we compete. We
came and brought big problems for Everton. After, the game changed.
For me, my players and my fans we didn't deserve the decision. It
shows the club and the gaffer is willing to give young players an
opportunity in the first team. We've all played our part when we have
been given the chance. It's proved we can play at this level. Can you
give those Everton fans some hope that Barkley and Lukaku will both be
Everton players next season? You need to have hope in life, that's
the best. Both are key players for the team. Everton will do the
maximum to keep these two players. Always the final decision is by the
player himself. Is we will come to that shortly. 1-0 the game was
balanced. Hull were a threat. Then the decision to send Huddlestone
off. What did you make of it? It was a tough decision for the referee. I
would have given given a yellow instead of a red. I understand why
he had has given it. It was clumsy, it was careless. He didn't go in
with two feet. I know it was high. You think it was a red card? I
looked at it from the referee's view. From that angle you can't see
it well. The ref is the other side of the ball. His foot is high over
the ball. From this angle, the referee's angle, it's difficult. He
might have a straight leg. He might have gone over the top. The referee
is looking at protecting players. He obviously considers that endangering
the opponent. It's marginal. It's harsh. You have to back the ref.
Orange. Lukaku becomes the first Everton player in history to score
20 league goals in a season because obviously football didn't exist
pre-Premier League, there you have it? Onaries an athlete. I don't know
who the other one is. Look at that picture! -- one's. He got two goals.
One assist. Lovely given goal to Valencia who had been on just over a
minute. On the last man, pace, in between, with the confidence he has
this season, no way he ises ming that. A clever finish. A gift here.
A step over, one-on-one with the keeper, again. He's absolutely
flying. He looks the real deal, doesn't he? He has everything, left
foot, right foot. When he is running into space and attacking defenders
he must terrify him. He is Drogba like. He hasn't hit those heights.
You see the reaction with the fans. He is giving them lots of love. In
good company before turning 24 years of age. The impressive thing, also
Gary, his fifth full season. He hasn't as yet this season, he is on
target to play over 30 games in every one of those seasons as well.
Superb. It is. What player scores 20 league goals for Everton and decides
to leave at the end of the season. Do you think he will go? I think he
will go, yes. The big boys will come sniffing for him. Top clubs take
him? Manchester United will look for a forward or two. Arsenal will be
looking for a forward, even Chelsea. Maybe even Liverpool as well. He's
got that, he has that ability. . Will only get better. 23 years of
age. Got a fantastic goalscoring record. They paid ?28 million for
him three years ago. When you look at the prices now we would talk
about ?60-70 million for him. Is that all? OK, we will move on from
that. Just three points separated
Bournemouth and Swansea ahead of their meeting at the Vitality
Stadium. A win for either side could ease
their relegation concerns. COMMENTATOR: Harry Arter has been
unable to shake off the calf problem he got last week, Surman comes into
midfield after a ban. After being left out of the latest England
squad, Jack Wilshere begins on the Bournemouth bench again. Ayew starts
with Kingsley and Ki Sung-Yueng featuring for the first time since
January. January. Top-scorer Llorente has recovered from a dead
leg. Here is Gosling, quickly closed down. Weaved his way through, Joshua
King. Fraser. Ryan Fraser! First genuine chance of the game. Ryan
Fraser, called up to the Scotland squad for the first time this week,
dragging his final effort wide. Eddie Howe always felt Swansea had a
good group of players who could do well in the Premier League he says
Paul Clement has galvanised them as they inch their way up the table.
Here is Fer, went for the early ball, came off Daniels. Fer cranking
up for a long one. Llorente gets the header. Sigurdsson. Well, by his
standards that goes down as a chance. Mawson. Kingsley is on the
charge, on the left hand side. Smith is has caught Kingsley there. That
will be a Swansea free-kick. Sigurdsson over the free-kick.
Decent delivery. It was just glanced wide of his own-goal by Joshua King.
The man who got a hat-trick here last weekend almost opened the
scoring, but not in the way he would have wanted. Cook.
Cook, just ran away from him. It has broken for Joshua King. Pugh back to
Joshua King. Now it's Afobe. It's in. Benik Afobe, who couldn't score
a penalty last week, has fired Bournemouth in front this time
around. Afobe, who scored in Birmingham's victory at Swansea
earlier on this season, has scored against the Swans once again. He had
the benefit of a deflection off Alfei Mawson. A grin on his face
there. If they take the goal off him, that will quickly disappear.
Won four, lost four in the Premier League for Swansea since Paul
Clement took over. Three of those defeats came against Arsenal,
Manchester City and Chelsea. Taken down well by Leroy Fer.
Sigurdsson has a go. Not a bad effort and a pretty good save from
Artur Boruc. Wonderful technique from Sigurdsson. Probably was just
drifting wide. Benik Afobe up against Mawson.
Won back well by Bournemouth. Gosling! Good hit. Top save from
Fabianski as well. Swansea played themselves into a spot of bother
there, and they were very nearly punished by Dan Gosling. If Eddie
Howe's side win today, it will be the first time in just over a year
that they have managed back-to-back league victories. Well won by
Gosling. Joshua King. Benik Afobe with a real chance. 2-0,
Bournemouth. And that one certainly is Benik Afobe's goal. Credit to
Joshua King for the run and then the well weighted pass to Afobe. Inch
perfect finish by him beyond Fabianski, and he will feel he
should have two to his name. He certainly has at least one in the
bag. Surely it's all three points wrapped up for Bournemouth as well.
Pugh pokes it through to Wilshere. On his own at the moment. It's stood
up towards King. What a save from Fabianski. Josh King keeps it alive.
It's too high for Afobe. Now Wilshere. A good ball in again.
Smith... And Fabianski gratefully gathers. This was a top drawer save
from Fabianski, he flung himself into the path of it and beat it
away. Delighted today with the back-to-back wins. Something we are
pleased to achieve and it's a long time since we have been solid enough
to keep a clean sheet. Bournemouth were deserving of the victory, they
were more clinical than us. The situation is not bad. We have come a
long way in the last two and a half months. We are in 17th, and when I
came in we were bottom on 12 points. If the season finished tomorrow we
would be happy in 17th and we will play at this level next season. The
fact is we have nine games to go. It's important now we have two home
games. Bournemouth have just shown that if you put together
back-to-back wins you can climb out of that situation and we have to do
the same. Football is a funny old game. I have never gone hiding in my
life. I missed a couple of chances last week but have kept going,
worked on my finishing and one has gone in for me today. I will keep
going and get as many goals as I can before the end of the season. What
is turned around in the last fortnight? I don't think anything
has turned around, the players have just stuck with it, didn't get too
negative and managed to ride out a mini period where we didn't get
things as he wanted to. That mental resilience has been keep. Two
consecutive wins takes the heat off. It was merited. Bournemouth were not
exceptional but they played well enough. Swansea tried to be
defensive to begin with and it worked for 30 minutes until they
lost their shape, needlessly. Fernandez here, they are in a good
line, and there is no danger until Fernandes decides he will suddenly
stepped out to engage with Josh King. That leaves a gap for a
striker to run in. Benik Afobe gets away. He's lucky with the shot.
Unlucky not to get the goal! Marginally going past the post, so
it deflects off Mawson. He didn't get that goal, but he certainly will
get this one. He gets on the other side of Mawson again. Gets his feet
mixed up. Very good finish, in off the post. Three big points for
Bournemouth. That's them out of trouble now. Swansea offered very
little today. They were very poor. But they have been playing very
well. They had an off day. The tense battle for the top four
will take centre stage The race for the top four is well
and truly on. Before that, Match of the Day 2
Extra will analyse the weekend's Radio 5 Live then has
commentary on two matches. Tottenham versus Southampton
is followed by Manchester City against Liverpool, live
from the Etihad. And also coming up on the BBC
is a special programme I don't think I have grieved
properly. I've not given myself that time to sit down and really flush
everything out. Two years ago former England captain Rio Ferdinand lost
his wife to cancer, leaving him as sole parents to their three
children. Now I'm at the point where I want to go out there to see what's
available for families who have somebody pass away. There is a life
out there afterwards. I have seen that documentary and
it's very powerful. Sam Allardyce began life
as Crystal Palace manager with an away draw at Watford
on Boxing Day. Ahead of the return
at Selhurst Park, Palace had finally managed back-to-back victories
to take them out Watching this one
was Jonathan Pearce. COMMENTATOR: Is Tunnel King Sam
Allardyce leading another great escape? Palace are back from a
training break in Morocco, making one change from the win over West
Brom a fortnight ago. Jeff Schlupp in for the injured Van Aanholt. Two
clean sheets in a row, conceding six in seven as Allardyce plug the
leaks. Craig Cathcart appearing for the first time in a month for
Watford. Janmaat also fit. Holebas and Okaka drop to the bench. Etienne
Capoue is OK after a midweek virus. Zaha uses his pace against Cathcart
and gets in between the two defenders. No free kick. Zaha
certainly played for it. I think it's a foul there, and I think it
was outside the box when the foul started. The referee was brilliantly
placed and said there was no infringement at all. He always said
that Crystal Palace fans wouldn't see a significant improvement until
March. Or even later on, in April. Clever ball by Jason Puncheon, one
of the game 's best passes so far. Zaha to the dead-ball line. Away by
Kaboul. Deflected from Cabaye. The best we have seen from Crystal
Palace. Really important header away. Great piece of wing play by
Zaha. Watford chop and change so many times in the close season, you
wonder if he will be here next season. A modest career over 13
years and 11 clubs as a player. James Tomkins got it away. Tom
Cleverley foraged. Niang on the outside of Josh Ward. Tomkins will
get it away. Cabaye was running with Cleverley and he has gone down
holding the back of his head. Cabaye behind Cleverley. Tom Cleverley
certainly moved his arm back. Tom Cleverley certainly
moved his arm back. Now Zaha. To stretch the legs and
run Cathcart. Brilliantly played. He's been the game's best player.
Brilliantly through to Puncheon. Hanging on, Sebastian Prodl. Was
there a cuff? The referee will try to calm things down. Martin Atkinson
has had a brilliant game. Cuffed him with the right hand. Silly from
Zaha. Townsend, up through the gears. This is what he can do. He
gets the cross in as well. It comes to Wilfried Zaha. Is this Palace's
big moment? Over he goes. Good run by Townsend. Why doesn't he do it
more often? Zaha lifted it over. Townsend doubles up with Kelly. Back
in two Niang. That looked like a stamping challenge. Niang stays down
and the Watford fans howl. Zaha is taken out by Sebastian Prodl. That
will be a yellow card. Watford fans enraged that a free kick wasn't
given at the other end. Risky challenge to make in there. He makes
contact with the foot of Niang. Martin Atkinson might have been
blindsided by it. Should have been a free kick, and if it was, it should
have been a yellow card. At the other end, Sebastian Prodl certainly
takes an Zaha. Definite course double -- caution able offence.
Crystal Palace take the lead. Watford scratch their heads. Troy
Deeney has a great scoring record against Crystal Palace, and he has
scored four Crystal Palace. Lovely delivery in. The knee got across his
man. He beat his own keeper. -- Troy Deeney got across his man. Doesn't
matter how they go in when you are at the bottom of the table. It's
become a bit steamy in the second half. To be honest, it needed to. A
long-range effort, nearly beat Hennessey. He had to react smartly
to Doucoure. Probably Watford's best effort of the game. Moving horribly
in the air for the goalkeeper. Hennessey had to make sure. The
jacket is off, the gloves are off. He's annoyed. Britos, good work by
Jason Puncheon again, pressure rising. Townsend up through the
gears. Britos struggling. Plans to Zaha. Brilliant block from Cathcart.
Cabaye! That would have settled it. Certainly since the goal Crystal
Palace have been by far the better team. The jacket is back on. Is that
a signal of acceptance? Watford about to go four league games
without a win. One last time. Looking for Troy Deeney. Hennessey
comes and doesn't get there. Niang! Over the bar. The last chance of the
game has come and gone. Troy Deeney foraged so hard for it and took a
clout. Crystal Palace have held onto a crucial victory. Watford not yet
clear of danger. Watford made it really tough. They had recently won
away at Arsenal, but we toughed it out with them and our quality paid
off in the end. Walter, do you think Watford should have had a free kick
for a foul before Crystal Palace scored? TRANSLATION: We are not
happy and disappointed as well because there was a foul before the
goal. In our favour. The goal was also an own goal. We didn't deserve
to lose, absolutely. A little lapse of concentration on my part. The
ball dipped in front of me. I put my head down and it ended up in the
back of the net. I'm not one for apologising, it's just a mistake.
The out of possession work to now since I got here, that has improved
so much. It's why we are getting victories. They are shutting down
the opposition and making it difficult for them. When they get
the ball, there is quality to get as the victory. Not the greatest game
in Crystal Palace's history at Selhurst Park. But Sam and the
Palace fans won't care one jot. It's one of the rare occasions where a
team wins a game without registering a shot on target. We will talk about
Sam and his defensive duties. When he was at Sunderland, his first 15
games, 28 goals conceded, his second 15, just 16. It gets a while for him
to get his team how he wants them. -- he takes a while. Sakho is a key
component to the backline. He is positive, gives a solid feel to the
backline. He wants to defend. As quite good discipline as well. That
has encouraged his team-mates to work hard together. Looking at them
as a unit, Niang can't get past them so decides to have a long-range
effort. He also has some composure, good qualities. Pulls the ball out
when he has time and place it to set off the attack for Palace. Even when
he doesn't win the ball, he's a nuisance. Doesn't win the first one,
but gets the second. Scruffy clearance to get it away from
danger. It sums up what Crystal Palace are doing under Allardyce.
The looks a bit clumsy, but I liked him at Liverpool. I'm surprised they
let him go. He cost a bit, but he has made a difference to what was a
struggling team. Time was running out for Sunderland
after a run of one win in ten had left them rooted to the bottom
of the table. If they were to pull off
another great escape surely they had to beat Burnley,
who currently possess one of the worst away records
in Premier League history. At the Stadium of Light
was Guy Mowbray. COMMENTATOR: Harry Kane is the only
Englishman to score more Premier League goals than Jermain Defoe this
season. Perhaps it's only right to be 34-year-old has been recalled for
England duty more than three years after his last Three Lions game.
Maybe one day Andre Gray will receive the same honour. He's on the
right track with seven goals in his last 11 Premier League games,
including a hat-trick against Sunderland on New Year's Eve. All
Premier League referees today are using the soon to be issued new 12
sided ?1 coin. Lowton heard the shout of keepers
then. Pickford in too much of a hurry to get the ball away. Find
Arfield. Ward, beaten Januzaj. Burnley have a corner. It has come
from Pickford's hurried clearance. It's been a feature of Burnley's
corners that they've always been on the move. Here they go again. Why is
Joey going? Too high for Joey Barton. Ben Mee. Norburnly corner.
He felt he might have been pushed by Ben Mee, Oviedo. Arfield in.
Couldn't get high enough. Rodwell, not far enough out. Boyd, blocked by
Gibson. I think it did strike his hands, but he was no more than an
inch away from George Boyd. Stopped by the arm of Gibson, but the
distance involved and the ferocity of the strike I think ruled out the
claim quite quickly. Sunderland's owner is in attendance today for
only the second time at the Stadium of Light all season. Ben Mee. Down
as though caught by Januzaj. Burnley press on in attack mode with Andre
Gray. Won't reach Boyd. Ben Mee is still down. Januzaj. He's the player
at the centre of it for Sunderland. Trying it get away from Hendrick.
Free-kick Sunderland with Burnley angry they didn't get one just a few
moments ago. Miss timed his jump for the ball, certainly. That is total
accidental coming together. Both teams struggling for goals. Burnley
have scored eight away from home. Sunderland have only scored in one
of their last seven games anywhere. Ward. Gray. Arfield. Barnes -
misses. The flag stayed down. Huge opportunity for Burnley. Good work
by Andre Gray. And by Scott Arfield. It might have been just a boot
offside. He looks bang in line, you know. That's how difficult it is.
Boyd. Oviedo. Borini! Defoe wanted it pulled back and across. Borini
didn't seem sure which boot to take it on, and it was tame. Jones nipped
in ahead of Ben Mee and Defoe keeps his balance. Looked as though there
was a nudge from Keane. A good save by Heaton to denied Januzaj. Januzaj
tries to keep things moving. There's Larsson! Sunderland haven't had
better chances than the ones they've already managed in the second-half.
That is well kept out by Heaton. Barton. Boyd will do really well to
get to that. He's done really well. Arfield puts it over. That was
Barton. Larsson getting in Gibson's way. Pickford collects. Burnley
asked for a penalty. Play on. Januzaj, it has to be the right ball
in. He can't mess this. The ball never came in. Larsson. This's a
good ball in. It's headed wide. What a chance for Sunderland. Bill ill-
Jones. Hard to see the Black Cats getting a better chance than that
today. Jones got just ahead of the ball. It wasn't far away from
getting a touch from Defoe either. Burnley were adamant they should
have had a chance to score from 12 yards out. Larsson who stopped the
effort from Ward. It was Barnes down, with Oviedo going for the
ball. I think it missed everything. Gibson. Defoe. He uses his body to
get across. Defoe goes on. Can't get the shot away though because of
Michael Keane. His clearance isn't good though, straight to Jones.
Jones will be on to it, again. Januzaj! It's a whisker wide. Listen
to the noise now though. There is something building and brewing for
Sunderland. I think Tom Heaton had the shot covered, just about.
Denayer. Vokes has the better of him. Denayer tries to stop him.
Stopped by Pickford, cleared by O'Shea. Jason Denayer has apologies
to make to everybody else in red and white. He nearly put his side into
deep, deep bother. Seemingly no danger. That touch invited Vokes in.
Vokes just wanted it a whole lot more. Through to Jones. Jones never
really had it under his full control. It's broken to Borini. Huge
save from Heaton. Jones fought bravely. Borini struck it quite
sweetly. Is that just a sign that it's not going to be their day. It's
not their season. It's a missed opportunity, but it's also a point.
I know that between now and the end of the season we will have to win
quite a few games. We were always going have to draw some. It wasn't
one for the want of trying or for the players giving their all. We
have to say we didn't quite get what we wanted today. I thought we had
two golden chances and a possible penalty for a handball. I thought we
were in control of the game. Without being too dominant, we were in
control first half they came out and had a better second-half. They had
to win. They threw caution to the wind. Almost went into a 4-2-4 they
created chances. A game of missed chanced on both sides. Does it put
pressure on you as a manager when you know the owner is in the stands
watching on? No, none at all. Impressed with that one. A stinker
that really, wasn't it? That is being polite, Gary. That is why it
was last on the show. There is not so much to talk about. Same old
story for Sunderland. Don't worry we felt the same as well you had a nod
there. If Defoe don't score quite often Sunderland don't score. 24 he
has. They had one or two chances. Januzaj first there. I mean this one
is the biggest one. What a ball that is from Larsson. Billy Jones,
far-post, an absolute sitter. Sitter! He doesn't even hit the
target. Has to score there. A brilliant ball in. Even the last
couple of minutes falls to Borini. 24 goals in 28 games with
Sunderland. It's not enough. That has been their problem. A lot to do
to stay up. They have. They are getting cut adrift. It was a decent
point for Burnley. They are ticking along. Struggled away from home
generally. We are about out of time. Thank you boys. Let's look at the
Premier League table. Chelsea are 13 points clear. The biggest Premier
League league for almost two years and could win the Premier League
with three at the back. Everton go sixth ahead of Manchester United.
They have played three games more. Sunderland are seven points from
safety while Hull miss the chance to climb out of the relegation zone.
Crystal Palace are four points clear of trouble. Leicester have a six
point buffer. The papers. Arsene Wenger refuse to say whether he's
staying or going is crazy. The Mail adds he will resist pressure during
the international break. Harry Kane is winning the race to be England's
long-term captain, according to the Sun.
Chelsea dig in to send Conte crazy in the dug out.
From all of us here, a very good night.
The laws in the state of Florida are very harsh.

Gary Lineker introduces highlights from Saturday's seven Premier League fixtures. Arsenal face a trip to West Brom in the day's early kick-off and the Gunners are desperate to avoid defeat at the Hawthorns for a second successive year. Title favourites Chelsea travel to Stoke, where they have lost on two of their last three league visits. Elsewhere, Everton host Hull, reigning Premier League champions Leicester are away to West Ham, Sunderland take on Burnley at the Stadium of Light, Bournemouth are at home to Swansea and Crystal Palace face Watford.
