COMMENTATOR: Just brilliant, just brilliant!

:00:18.:00:25.

COMMENTATOR: What a turn, what a goal!

:00:26.:00:37.

COMMENTATOR: Look at that. Oh, look at that!

:00:38.:00:44.

Good evening, it's been an exhilarating day

:00:45.:00:45.

Seven matches on the way, with big stories at both ends of the table.

:00:46.:00:51.

No inauguration needed for Alan Shearer and Ruud Gullit.

:00:52.:00:55.

Actor Will Ferrell was at Anfield for Liverpool's game against bottom

:00:56.:00:58.

It wasn't the greatest first half but, boy,

:00:59.:01:02.

it escalated quickly after the break.

:01:03.:01:04.

Liverpool are back at home sweet home. They weren't beaten at Anfield

:01:05.:01:19.

in over a year and are determined to maintain that foundation, in a

:01:20.:01:22.

potentially pivotal period against Swansea side with the worst

:01:23.:01:27.

defensive record in the league. Jurgen Klopp is able to hand

:01:28.:01:29.

Philippe Coutinho his first Premier League start since the end of

:01:30.:01:33.

November and welcome back line in defence. Joel Matip cleared last

:01:34.:01:36.

night to be back involved is amongst the substitutes. It's been busy in

:01:37.:01:42.

the transfer market Tom Carroll and Martin Olsson are included from the

:01:43.:01:47.

start. Luciano Narsingh is an fit enough to be involved. Joint top

:01:48.:01:52.

scorer Leroy Fer is recalled. Its Liverpool aware the marching Ferrer

:01:53.:02:00.

is increasing by the week. It's a game they are expected to win.

:02:01.:02:05.

Anything for the bottom club would be a bonus. Lovely cross ball from

:02:06.:02:15.

Wijnaldum. Henderson to cross. Can, he met it well. Just couldn't guide

:02:16.:02:20.

it on target. Looking for the offside flag. They might have got it

:02:21.:02:25.

as well. By the way, it was an opportunity for Can. He knew it, as

:02:26.:02:30.

well. Swansea where they will have to work extremely hard today. He

:02:31.:02:34.

knows the size of the task ahead of him to keep Swansea in the Premier

:02:35.:02:37.

League. He knows the size of the task ahead of him for this 90

:02:38.:02:41.

minutes up as well. Here they come again, with Clyne. Firmino away from

:02:42.:02:48.

Wolfson, what a goal that would have been. Lallana couldn't keep it down

:02:49.:02:53.

in the end. Swansea were torn apart. Watch this from Firmino. Alfie

:02:54.:02:58.

Mawson beats all ends up and beautifully clipped in. Beautiful

:02:59.:03:02.

one for Lallana to try to get over. Warning signs for Swansea. He knows

:03:03.:03:08.

is this -- this is potentially a defining period ahead, Chelsea,

:03:09.:03:14.

Spurs and others coming to an field over the next few games.

:03:15.:03:23.

A rare foray into the Liverpool half so far for Swansea. It's a nice

:03:24.:03:31.

linkup for Sigurdsson. Carroll's delivery almost caught out

:03:32.:03:35.

Liverpool. I think that's the first time Swansea have been in the

:03:36.:03:38.

Liverpool penalty area so far. Carroll found himself in space,

:03:39.:03:44.

clipped off Lovren, into the post. One would suggest he would have had

:03:45.:03:51.

a word or two at half-time. Forward from Morton, Fer made the run.

:03:52.:03:54.

Lovren with a nervous header to concede the corner will stop only

:03:55.:03:59.

Swansea's second of the game. He was trying to find his goalkeeper. Can

:04:00.:04:05.

Swansea make a set play count? Liverpool have everybody back to

:04:06.:04:09.

defend it. Sigurdsson takes it. Fernandez Winslet, came to Llorente,

:04:10.:04:20.

who puts Swansea in front. Llorente, with his seventh Premier League

:04:21.:04:24.

goal, his first out of South Wales, and he has shocked Anfield inside

:04:25.:04:29.

the first two and a half minutes of the second half. Liverpool did not

:04:30.:04:34.

deal with this. Fernandez to the first one, it came back to the

:04:35.:04:39.

Spaniard, and he just stabbed it past Mignolet. The right place, the

:04:40.:04:42.

right time. Certainly the right outcome. Paul Clement's team in

:04:43.:04:50.

front full stop that wasn't in the pre-match script. It is a test of

:04:51.:04:53.

liveable's character and credentials now. -- Liverpool's character and

:04:54.:05:01.

credentials now. Olsson, the debutant. Carroll an option.

:05:02.:05:06.

Terrific delivery. Llorente! Goodness me! Two goals in five

:05:07.:05:10.

minutes. Both from Fernando Llorente. And the bottom club

:05:11.:05:18.

Swansea, 2-0 in front Anfield. You could hear a pin drop. What a well

:05:19.:05:24.

worked goal as well. Carroll started it on the halfway line, then went

:05:25.:05:28.

for the return ball. Terrific movement from Tom Carroll. But what

:05:29.:05:32.

about this for a cross? The leap from Llorente to guide it past

:05:33.:05:38.

Mignolet. Liverpool flat-footed, Swansea absolutely jubilant. The

:05:39.:05:46.

attack by Llorente, got in amongst three Liverpool defenders right in

:05:47.:05:49.

front of those supporters who have come up from South Wales. They will

:05:50.:05:53.

be pinching themselves. Liverpool nil, Swansea two. Swansea will have

:05:54.:06:00.

got belief from the way they defended in the first half. Now

:06:01.:06:03.

they've really got something to defend. Henderson's crossfield ball.

:06:04.:06:12.

In from Milner, Firmino. Well, there's one back. Roberto Firmino,

:06:13.:06:17.

who scored earlier in the season against Swansea, reduces the deficit

:06:18.:06:24.

at Anfield. Milner's delivery the -- the only really have Firmino to aim

:06:25.:06:29.

for, and Firmino came in behind Olsson and planted the header past

:06:30.:06:34.

Fabianski is. Liverpool needed that. Firmino's eighth goal of the season.

:06:35.:06:41.

Liverpool one, Swansea two. Lallana, options ahead of him, trying to link

:06:42.:06:46.

up with Firmino. Lallana could have waltzed all the way through.

:06:47.:06:55.

Heerkens Routledge. -- Heerkens Routledge, up against Klavan. Throw.

:06:56.:07:03.

-- a Swansea throw. That came off Milner. It's a Swansea corner. We

:07:04.:07:07.

know what happened from the last one. Will he get a repeat? Can

:07:08.:07:14.

Liverpool deal it is one better? Olsson got his head to it, he didn't

:07:15.:07:18.

deal with it, but they got away with it. Alfie Mawson with just the one

:07:19.:07:22.

Premier League goal to his name. That went right across the face in

:07:23.:07:28.

the end. Got his manager excited. Liverpool's 50th Premier League goal

:07:29.:07:31.

of the season has got them back in the game, but they need more. A

:07:32.:07:35.

lovely touch in, Sturridge wanted it early. Into towards Firmino instead.

:07:36.:07:44.

Fabulous finish from Firmino. Two for him, two for Liverpool, and

:07:45.:07:49.

they've got it back to 2-2. 21 minutes to go. Game on! Wijnaldum

:07:50.:07:55.

made it, a brilliant touch from the Dutch man. But Firmino still had

:07:56.:08:01.

plenty to do. And didn't he do well? There's the little luck from

:08:02.:08:04.

Wijnaldum. What a first touch from Firmino. You just wonder if there

:08:05.:08:12.

was a deliberate use of the arm there from Wijnaldum in the

:08:13.:08:13.

build-up. Wonderful balance, I the ball, half

:08:14.:08:28.

volley. 2-2. Liverpool, who were two down, continue their efforts to win

:08:29.:08:29.

it. Here's Tom Carroll, trying to weave

:08:30.:08:37.

his way through. It's going to come to Sigurdsson. Swansea back in

:08:38.:08:45.

front! Paul Clement's team have scored three times at Anfield. He

:08:46.:08:50.

can't believe it. Swansea are pinching themselves. Llorente held

:08:51.:08:56.

it up here will stop it was positive from Tom Carroll. A little bit of

:08:57.:09:00.

fortune off Klavan, but Sigurdsson didn't switch off and dispatched it

:09:01.:09:07.

into the bottom corner for his six league goal of the season. And the

:09:08.:09:12.

visitors have restored their lead. Liverpool two, Swansea three.

:09:13.:09:19.

Henderson trying to pick out Lallana. He's succeeded. In towards

:09:20.:09:23.

Sturridge. Origi couldn't get there. Cleared in the Naughton. It's still

:09:24.:09:34.

alive. Lallana, now Sturridge. Blocked by Sigurdsson, a Liverpool

:09:35.:09:39.

corner. Is there another twist in today's tale? Liverpool and beaten

:09:40.:09:43.

at Anfield in over a year, trailing Swansea. Milner with the corner.

:09:44.:09:48.

Lovren tries to get his head to it. Origi, good stop from Fabianski you.

:09:49.:09:55.

Might need a few more of those. They are not there yet, but what a day

:09:56.:09:58.

those Swansea fans could be about to witness. 25 unbeaten games at

:09:59.:10:06.

Anfield, under threat here. Lallana, on-site. Blocked, went for a second

:10:07.:10:10.

time. And then Sturridge and then Lallana. A big chance for Liverpool

:10:11.:10:18.

to level it up again. Had a few bites of the cherry here. Lallana

:10:19.:10:22.

hit the crossbar and it came back to Adam Lallana, he couldn't keep the

:10:23.:10:28.

header down. It's a result of huge significance at both ends of the

:10:29.:10:32.

Premier League table, because Paul Clement has led Swansea to their

:10:33.:10:37.

first-ever league win at Anfield, and Liverpool's long, unbeaten home

:10:38.:10:41.

record is over. It has finished Liverpool two, Swansea three.

:10:42.:10:48.

Weldon, how good does that feel, Swansea's first-ever league win

:10:49.:10:53.

Anfield? Is it? I didn't know. A nice feeling, obviously. We played

:10:54.:10:57.

well in parts of the game, offensively click, but I was most

:10:58.:11:01.

pleased with our defence. A great start to the second half, the set

:11:02.:11:05.

play, the wonderful croissant finish for the second goal and when you

:11:06.:11:10.

have gone 2-1, 2-2, you wonder if the momentum is with the home team

:11:11.:11:15.

and they will go for the win the counterattack opportunity clinical,

:11:16.:11:18.

great finish, and then we saw the game out so I'm very proud of the

:11:19.:11:22.

players and they ever they put in today. Really hard to accept and we

:11:23.:11:28.

defended most of the time pretty well. They had three chances

:11:29.:11:32.

probably, scored three times. We had I don't know how much and scored two

:11:33.:11:37.

times, so it makes them the deserved winner. We have to work on it, at

:11:38.:11:44.

this moment it's very disappointing. The game plan worked perfectly. We

:11:45.:11:47.

frustrated them. They had a lot of half chances and probably a bit more

:11:48.:11:51.

chances in the second half, but we defended really well and I thought

:11:52.:11:56.

the gaffer got it spot on, the way he set us up and hopefully that will

:11:57.:11:59.

continue over the next couple of months. A superb win of course for

:12:00.:12:04.

Swansea. Jurgen Klopp they're very frustrated, particularly by his

:12:05.:12:08.

side's defending. He said they had three opportunities and managed to

:12:09.:12:15.

score twice and it suggests weakness is the back. Ruud? You can see a

:12:16.:12:19.

lack of concentration in certain moments. The first one, you can see

:12:20.:12:24.

it's across here from the right side. OK, they don't deal well with

:12:25.:12:27.

it. Lovren doesn't know what to do. This is how they give away the

:12:28.:12:32.

corner. So Lovren says, come on, here you can see Henderson is with

:12:33.:12:40.

Llorente. He lets him go. Here you go, puts it in. So this is sloppy.

:12:41.:12:46.

You don't need to do that. Here is another one, also the header, could

:12:47.:12:50.

be a goal as well. It's all standard situations. Here is the last goal,

:12:51.:12:57.

it's 3-2. Look at Llorente, how much space he has in there. I think

:12:58.:13:03.

Carroll dribbles very well and again, a goal, look at him, how much

:13:04.:13:07.

space he has. You have to be tighter here. Good dribble by Carroll here,

:13:08.:13:13.

lucky, this is 3-2. You give away these opportunities, especially in

:13:14.:13:16.

the moment you were pressing yourself for the 3-2. There were not

:13:17.:13:22.

their usual selves. Liverpool were lacklustre, lethargic even. Yes,

:13:23.:13:25.

they've got an excellent record against their title rivals. In fact,

:13:26.:13:29.

they've never been beaten yet by one of their rivals, but they have been

:13:30.:13:33.

beaten by Bournemouth and Swansea, by Burnley, drawn with Sunderland,

:13:34.:13:36.

which tells you there's an issue I think with attitude and application.

:13:37.:13:40.

You cannot just turn up in any game and expect to win the game by just

:13:41.:13:46.

turning up. They were slow, sluggish, poor passing. There was no

:13:47.:13:49.

energy about their game, made it easier than it should have been for

:13:50.:13:53.

the two centre halves. Lallana and Firmino are miles away from each

:13:54.:13:57.

other. The centre halves have got nothing to do, no want to pick up,

:13:58.:14:00.

this time on the left-hand side comes to Milner, he picks his head

:14:01.:14:05.

up. Again, they are away from each other, the forwards. Not making the

:14:06.:14:09.

back four work as hard as they should do. They go 2-0 down. All of

:14:10.:14:14.

a sudden they think they have a game on their hands, they have to do

:14:15.:14:16.

something. There's urgency about them, they've got people in the box

:14:17.:14:21.

prepared to put balls into the box and this is what happens. Their

:14:22.:14:24.

passing was sharper, great skill from Wijnaldum. The touch and

:14:25.:14:28.

technique here from Firmino was absolutely superb. But you can't

:14:29.:14:33.

just turn up and expect, because you turn up, that you are going to win.

:14:34.:14:36.

It doesn't work like that in any football match, let alone the

:14:37.:14:41.

Premier League. They get to 2-2, but defensively poor. Important given

:14:42.:14:45.

Swansea's position on a table, a new man in charge, to give them credit

:14:46.:14:49.

for a performance and no one more so possibly than Tom Carroll, and new

:14:50.:15:01.

signing. He's been on loan but impressive display. 24 years of age,

:15:02.:15:03.

he's played one minute of Premier League football this season, so the

:15:04.:15:06.

way he lasted the game, the way he got around the pitch showed great

:15:07.:15:08.

energy. He was superb in this game. He bossed it. A little give and go,

:15:09.:15:12.

set Swansea on the attack again. He was really unlucky here. Again, give

:15:13.:15:17.

and go, he's the guy looking to get in behind. A little bit fortunate,

:15:18.:15:20.

that deflection, but it hits the post. He did his bit defensively as

:15:21.:15:25.

well. Didn't panic at all. He's in full control of the situation, knows

:15:26.:15:30.

what he's doing. The next clip you are about to see one of the best

:15:31.:15:33.

crosses I've seen for a long, long time. The weight of pass down the

:15:34.:15:39.

line, that's him on the ball, he doesn't admire that, he follows it,

:15:40.:15:43.

and as I said, this is one hell of a cross coming up. On the half volley,

:15:44.:15:46.

left foot, crying out for a centre forward to get on the end of its and

:15:47.:15:50.

Llorente didn't disappoint. What a cross, what a header, superb,

:15:51.:15:54.

Swansea were brilliant today. A fabulous win for them.

:15:55.:15:57.

Second placed Spurs were looking to win seven league games in a row

:15:58.:16:00.

Standing in their way, Manchester City, who dropped out

:16:01.:16:04.

of the top four after losing 4-0 at Everton.

:16:05.:16:06.

Your commentator at the Eithad was Guy Mowbray.

:16:07.:16:10.

COMMENTATOR: City keeper, Claudio Bravo seems an easy target at the

:16:11.:16:15.

moment to talk about and shoot at. With an unhealthy proportion of

:16:16.:16:18.

attempts on his goal going in. He did however save a penalty when

:16:19.:16:22.

these sides met in October, albeit in a 2-0 defeat. Harry Kane didn't

:16:23.:16:28.

play in that game Kew to an ankle injury. He has a goal a game average

:16:29.:16:35.

since returning. He scored in both games against City last season. This

:16:36.:16:38.

is his 1th Premier League match for Spurs. Tottenham Hotspur looking to

:16:39.:16:45.

do to City what they did to City at White Hart Lane on 2nd October. City

:16:46.:16:49.

went there on a run of six wins out of six and lost their 100% record,

:16:50.:16:58.

deservedly so. David Silva, Aguero. Rode the challenge. De Bruyne, in

:16:59.:17:03.

for Zabaleta. What a good tackle that is. Last touch, Zabaleta's,

:17:04.:17:09.

too. He screams corner, goal kick is the call. A cracking tackle.

:17:10.:17:18.

Zabaleta, posed to test lores lores. -- Lloris. Look at his anguish. The

:17:19.:17:22.

last touch was his. Zabaleta, De Bruyne. Sterling to Silva. Silva's

:17:23.:17:29.

going to try one. Well saved by Lloris. Well hit by Silva. He had

:17:30.:17:34.

the option of spreading the play wide. Thats with a better bet

:17:35.:17:41.

though. Made it awkward for Lloris. Had to go at full stretch to keep it

:17:42.:17:48.

out. Synchronised managers! Clichy. Sane. Didn't have the time. Gave the

:17:49.:17:59.

ball away to Sterling. Here's Aguero. Aguero holds on, finds De

:18:00.:18:14.

Bruyne. De Bruyne's chipped, saved by Lloris. Lively from Raheem

:18:15.:18:22.

Sterling. Aguero was patient in possession. Into a lovely position.

:18:23.:18:28.

Picked out pretty well by De Bruyne. Wanyama. Zabaleta. That's a great

:18:29.:18:46.

ball. Aguero's on to it. Aguero, good save by Lloris, keeping Spurs

:18:47.:18:49.

in it and keeping Aguero out. Had to do it by himself. That doesn't

:18:50.:18:55.

affect Aguero. It might just have been heading towards the outside of

:18:56.:18:59.

the post. Smartly done Lloris anyway. De Bruyne, quick enough to

:19:00.:19:12.

beat Dier to the ball. Silva, can't get a shot on the ball. Wanyama in

:19:13.:19:19.

his way and not budging one bit. This was a real bout of wles

:19:20.:19:26.

wrestling going on between Sterling and Wanyama. Nothing doing though.

:19:27.:19:34.

Songo'o. -- Song. Really good tack that will from Nicolas Otamendi. De

:19:35.:19:37.

Bruyne, trying to find a way to Sane. He's done that. Out comes

:19:38.:19:44.

Lloris, he's missed it. Leroy Sane taps Manchester City in front. A

:19:45.:19:50.

goal that releaves the pressure building up around the Etihad

:19:51.:19:54.

Stadium. City's pressure rewarded. In a week there's been so much talk

:19:55.:20:02.

about Claudio Bravo's goalkeeping prowess or otherwise, the man at the

:20:03.:20:11.

other end was caught out, Hugo Lloris, rated by many as the Premier

:20:12.:20:17.

League's best goalkeeper. Is there a suggestion of handball from Leroy

:20:18.:20:21.

Sane? However he got it under control, he had the simplest task

:20:22.:20:26.

after that of rolling it into an unguarded net. Manchester City 1,

:20:27.:20:33.

Tottenham Hotspur 0. Here's Dele Alli. Clichy in the way for City. De

:20:34.:20:47.

Bruyne, Aguero. Victor Wanyama, only won the ball very temporarily.

:20:48.:20:51.

Otamendi sets up Raheem Sterling on his way. De Bruyne is central.

:20:52.:20:57.

Lloris has lost it. De Bruyne has scored a second for Manchester City.

:20:58.:21:06.

Too hot for Lloris to handle. It's another tap-in. Two for Pep's Blues

:21:07.:21:14.

and Mauricio Pochettino's French keeper, normally so solid. A great

:21:15.:21:18.

scrap going on at the other end between Aguero and Wanyama. Nicolas

:21:19.:21:22.

Otamendi coolly found Sterling. It seemed as though he'd played the

:21:23.:21:26.

wrong ball in. Nowhere near De Bruyne with the cross. Raheem

:21:27.:21:31.

Sterling was disappointed as he struck it, not half as dispointed as

:21:32.:21:40.

Hugo Lloris will feel now -- disappointed. It's Manchester City

:21:41.:21:43.

2, Tottenham Hotspur 0. Is Dembele. Alderweireld. Dele Alli. Harry Kane.

:21:44.:22:00.

Silva on the slide. It's now Kyle Walker. What a good ball in, and

:22:01.:22:05.

it's headed in by Dell #yi Alli. Spurs are back in the game. And Pep

:22:06.:22:11.

Guardiola knows it. Same old story for Manchester City -- Dele Alli.

:22:12.:22:17.

Their opponents have hardly had an attempt on goal. Here's one on

:22:18.:22:21.

target, there is one in the net. Dele Alli's run continues. His 12th

:22:22.:22:25.

goal of the season. Eight of those have come in his last half a dozen

:22:26.:22:29.

Premier League matches. Manchester City 2, Tottenham Hotspur 1. Silva.

:22:30.:22:40.

Toure. Nicely shifted through to De Bruyne. Down the middle for

:22:41.:22:43.

Sterling. Danny Rose is all over him. Lloris gathers the ball with no

:22:44.:22:52.

penalty award for Manchester City. There's Rose, there was Sterling. It

:22:53.:22:57.

was ruled by the referee as six of one and half a dozen of another.

:22:58.:23:01.

Rose did seem to force Sterling off balance. Good ball from De Bruyne.

:23:02.:23:06.

Kolarov. Great ball. Sterling, onside. Raheem Sterling, maybe to

:23:07.:23:11.

wrap it up. A little push from Kyle Walker. Just as he was about to

:23:12.:23:16.

strike on goal. Pep Guardiola's furious. Sterling is about to pop it

:23:17.:23:23.

in and Kyle Walker pushes him. He kept his feet, maybe that's why he

:23:24.:23:31.

didn't get the penalty. Eriksen. Colliding away. Kane. Son - Spurs

:23:32.:23:41.

are EFL will. It was a fine finish from Son. Moments Pep Guardiola was

:23:42.:23:46.

adamant they should have had a chance to make it 3-1 from 12-yards.

:23:47.:23:53.

Brilliantly taken by Son. Kane looks as though - it was marginal. Flag

:23:54.:23:58.

stays down, given onside. A lovely flick to Son Heung-Min who had to

:23:59.:24:04.

take it first time. Didn't he take it well. It's a turn around at the

:24:05.:24:10.

Etihad from 2-0 down it's City 2, Spurs 2. This is so incensed Pep

:24:11.:24:15.

Guardiola. It had to be a penalty for Manchester City. Didn't you just

:24:16.:24:21.

know that once that hadn't been given, something would happen

:24:22.:24:28.

significant at the other end. His arrival has been eagerly-awaited.

:24:29.:24:35.

Now the 19-year-old, signed in a ?27 million plus deal takes to the field

:24:36.:24:38.

as a City player for the first time. Toure. De Bruyne. Aguero. Aguero to

:24:39.:24:51.

Silva. De Bruyne. Kevin De Bruyne! It's turned in. No, he's offside,

:24:52.:25:00.

would you believe it. He went to kick the corner flag in celebration,

:25:01.:25:05.

the whole of the ground went up in pandemonium. They saw that the flag

:25:06.:25:10.

had gone up, it was, too. Maybe we can't call it a brave call, it was

:25:11.:25:13.

just the right call. His time will come. We are just watching it again

:25:14.:25:25.

the push on Raheem Sterling, what are your feelings about that? The

:25:26.:25:29.

first question is about the referee. Because we were watching? BBC. BBC

:25:30.:25:34.

prestigious, to talk about the football not the referee. We saw it

:25:35.:25:38.

just then. I wonder what your reaction to that was. OK, the guy is

:25:39.:25:42.

going to say what happened. I wasn't going to get it otherwise. You have

:25:43.:25:47.

to put him off as much as possible. You know, Hugo pulled off the save

:25:48.:25:51.

as well. We went on and hung on to the draw, which I thought we

:25:52.:25:55.

deserved in the second-half. We deserved proper penalty, to be

:25:56.:26:00.

honest. After that we get a goal, offside. We are unlucky. I just want

:26:01.:26:07.

to say, like, you have to look, the ref have to be less involved in our

:26:08.:26:12.

game, you know what I mean. For me, it wasn't a penalty. That is

:26:13.:26:17.

England. You know, it's the same if we complain the first goal, Sane was

:26:18.:26:21.

handball. I think I never complained about that. I think it was handball,

:26:22.:26:25.

but in that situation, it's difficult to say it was handball.

:26:26.:26:31.

For the referee to cancel the goal. For me, it wasn't penalty like was

:26:32.:26:39.

in handball. . So, again, four times Everton two goals. This time two

:26:40.:26:44.

goals. That is impossible to make something we create eight, nine

:26:45.:26:48.

chances at Everton. Today, I don't know how many, I think a lot. When

:26:49.:26:53.

that happens, it's impossible. That is football. . When you cannot play

:26:54.:27:03.

your best. It's important to take positives. It's a massive point. The

:27:04.:27:09.

90s minute. This is the BBC, we're prestigious. My first question

:27:10.:27:13.

therefore will not be about the referees at all it was a missed tune

:27:14.:27:17.

in many ways for Manchester City against a Tottenham side that seemed

:27:18.:27:19.

to be all over the place, particularly in the first half? They

:27:20.:27:24.

were. They were missing Vertonghen, but, bear in mind before today's

:27:25.:27:28.

game, this is a team that had the best defensive record in the Premier

:27:29.:27:31.

League. You wouldn't have thought that the way they played today.

:27:32.:27:34.

Again, they played three at the back. That was quickly changed after

:27:35.:27:38.

about 20 minutes because Manchester City were too quick for them, too

:27:39.:27:42.

sharp. They were passing and they were all over the place. City were

:27:43.:27:48.

creating chance after chance after chance. Dier is caught on the ball

:27:49.:27:55.

here. Slow and sluggish, a bit of a scuffed shot from De Bruyne. Flick

:27:56.:28:01.

on, three against two. Slow to react. Better finishing and it

:28:02.:28:09.

should have been all over with. Rose is slow to get back in. Look,

:28:10.:28:12.

doesn't get back in. It's a good ball in. Sane, but he should score.

:28:13.:28:19.

Rose is too slow to react. Another chance goes missing. This time

:28:20.:28:25.

Wimmer is caught on the ball. Again, they have numbers forward, Tottenham

:28:26.:28:30.

outnumbered at the back. De Bruyne, and it's so much space there for

:28:31.:28:36.

Aguero. Free header, decent ball and not a bad save by that. Long ball

:28:37.:28:41.

over the top. They get caught again, Aguero running in behind. This is a

:28:42.:28:45.

brilliant save from Lloris from Aguero. Second Alf it didn't really

:28:46.:28:52.

change either, to be honest. Long ball over the top. -- half. Walker

:28:53.:28:59.

doesn't get inside. Again, too slow to react. Mistake from a very good

:29:00.:29:03.

goalkeeper. It's rare. Handball? I don't think it's handball. No, it's

:29:04.:29:08.

more ball to hand rather than ball to hand. Ball in the middle. Another

:29:09.:29:14.

mistake from Lloris. He's panicking because he hasn't made too many of

:29:15.:29:18.

those this season. Slow to react. Not enough pressure on the ball.

:29:19.:29:22.

Again, straight ball. Straight down the middle. And, this is a penalty,

:29:23.:29:29.

without a doubt. Hand to back? It should have been a red card and a

:29:30.:29:32.

penalty from Walker. No attempt to get the ball. The referee should

:29:33.:29:37.

pull that back because he has missed it. Give a red card and a penalty.

:29:38.:29:42.

We are allowed to ask about referees on the second question. Let's look

:29:43.:29:45.

at that. A lot of debate about what players should do in that position.

:29:46.:29:49.

Should he throw himself on the floor? In Italy I learned you have

:29:50.:29:55.

to go down if you feel it. In England they say it's cheating. This

:29:56.:29:59.

is the reason why people are diving. When you are honest you don't get

:30:00.:30:04.

what you deserve. He should get what he deserves? He should. That's the

:30:05.:30:09.

point. That is why players dive. Offside this one Umm... This was 30

:30:10.:30:19.

seconds after that penalty. Yes. Therefore, you know... I just want

:30:20.:30:23.

to say, people all the time moaning about football players diving, this

:30:24.:30:28.

is the reason. It's not the footballer's fault, the linesmen and

:30:29.:30:32.

the referee's fault. If they give this the players would stay on their

:30:33.:30:38.

feet. I don't want to encourage cheating or encouraging cheating -

:30:39.:30:42.

It's not cheating. I want to see referees keeping up with the game

:30:43.:30:45.

and getting a decision correct. It should have been a red card and a We

:30:46.:30:49.

can't start penalty. Blaming referees for players diving He will

:30:50.:30:54.

say - if you went down, that would have been a penalty. Pep seems very

:30:55.:30:59.

frustrated, understandably, I guess? Absolutely. He said last week that

:31:00.:31:03.

they are getting shots on goal, goalkeeper is not saving them, they

:31:04.:31:06.

are creating chances and not putting them away, certainly today. I'm sure

:31:07.:31:08.

it will change. Change. COMMENTATOR:

:31:09.:31:19.

Looking for something special, Lingard nearly found it. Phillips,

:31:20.:31:27.

good try. Off the woodwork. It's a great save. Great goalkeeping by the

:31:28.:31:33.

Brazilian. Despite going 12 league games

:31:34.:31:35.

unbeaten, Manchester United were still four points off

:31:36.:31:37.

a Champions League place ahead of their trip to Stoke,

:31:38.:31:40.

who've beaten United twice at home Simon Brotherton was

:31:41.:31:43.

at the bet365 Stadium. It's three months since Manchester

:31:44.:31:54.

United were beaten in the lead but four season since they last won this

:31:55.:32:00.

fixture. Stoke's point kick-started their season, victory today would be

:32:01.:32:03.

their 50th in the Premier League under Mark Hughes. Stoke -- Peter

:32:04.:32:10.

Crouch needs another to reach 100 in the Premier League. Chris Smalling

:32:11.:32:14.

captains the side, making his first league start since New Year's Eve.

:32:15.:32:19.

Nothing in it in every sense of the word so far. No clear-cut chances

:32:20.:32:26.

worthy of the name at either end of the pitch. Possession fairly even.

:32:27.:32:32.

Arnautovic with the lay-off. Joe Allen. He continues the run-in into

:32:33.:32:38.

the penalty area. This looks promising. It's in the back of the

:32:39.:32:45.

net, Stoke City with the lead. Erik Pieters with the effort at the near

:32:46.:32:52.

post, squeezing it home. A tight angle, but it proved to be enough.

:32:53.:32:57.

Here's Arnautovic, look at the run from Pieters, bursting into the

:32:58.:33:00.

penalty area. The ball comes in and the deflection carries it in past

:33:01.:33:06.

the goalkeeper. Tough going in the opening quarter of the match. In

:33:07.:33:14.

with the header, only as far as Paul Pogba. He picks out Ibrahimovic,

:33:15.:33:19.

alarm bells ringing for Stoke City. Ibrahimovic into Mata and it's over

:33:20.:33:26.

the top. Put off at the vital moment by Bruno Martins Indi. Ibrahimovic

:33:27.:33:34.

on the side, into space. Lifting the ball across to Juan Mata, who

:33:35.:33:42.

couldn't finish the job. Ibrahimovic, too strong for Charlie

:33:43.:33:48.

Adam. Glenn Whelan found that well. It's fallen kindly for Pogba.

:33:49.:33:53.

Fellaini is heading towards the far post. Pogba down, underneath the

:33:54.:33:57.

referee's knows there. Charlie Adam committing the foul.

:33:58.:34:06.

Good ball. Well defended by Ryan Shawcross. The danger still not

:34:07.:34:13.

clear. Antonio Valencia, back in. Over the top by the fingertips of

:34:14.:34:20.

Grant. Manchester United coming on strong with half-time on the

:34:21.:34:24.

horizon, the last three minutes of the first half. All hands on deck

:34:25.:34:30.

for Stoke City here. Blind's delivery, good save to deny Pogba.

:34:31.:34:37.

Pogba absolutely leathered this. An exciting end to this first half.

:34:38.:34:42.

Stoke City are head in a match in which the players haven't had a shot

:34:43.:34:49.

on target. Crouch goes for the spectacular. That would have seen

:34:50.:34:55.

him reach the century of Premier League goals in style. If it had

:34:56.:35:01.

gone in the back of the net. Manchester United having almost two

:35:02.:35:08.

thirds of the play here, but it's still a 1-0 scoreline in Stoke

:35:09.:35:12.

City's favour. The pressure is beginning to build. He is Pogba.

:35:13.:35:17.

Ibrahimovic the only other player in the box, Mata is in there as well. A

:35:18.:35:23.

little deflection, goes behind, Manchester United want a penalty.

:35:24.:35:26.

Mark Clattenburg says no. Pogba playing the ball in and clearly

:35:27.:35:32.

struck the Stoke City player on the arm, as he slid in. Now we are going

:35:33.:35:38.

to have a change. Wayne Rooney comes on. His next goal will be his 250th

:35:39.:35:48.

for Manchester United and he will become the club's record

:35:49.:35:53.

goal-scorer. A record he currently shares with Sir Bobby Charlton. Who

:35:54.:36:01.

was watching in the stands. And just United were beaten twice on the road

:36:02.:36:06.

so far. -- Manchester United have been beaten twice on the road so

:36:07.:36:10.

far. Will it be a first defeat in three months in the league? They

:36:11.:36:14.

have 15 minutes to try to do something about it. Given away by

:36:15.:36:19.

Whelan, here's Rooney. A ball Ibrahimovic. Rashford, wide.

:36:20.:36:26.

Manchester United are getting closer. This time, not close enough.

:36:27.:36:35.

It's not very often they draw a blank. They've had so much of the

:36:36.:36:36.

play in the second half. Rooney to Herrera, now Valencia. In

:36:37.:36:49.

towards the far post, Rooney goes for it. The header ultimately poses

:36:50.:36:59.

no threat. It would be a big result for Mark Hughes and for Stoke City

:37:00.:37:04.

if they could win this one. Valencia in, Pogba tries to bring it under

:37:05.:37:08.

control. Just, says Mark Clattenburg, no hand ball.

:37:09.:37:13.

Arnautovic Ford as well on the near side. Afellay doesn't find any of

:37:14.:37:20.

them. There was a big decision and the other end of a field a few

:37:21.:37:24.

moments ago, as Antonio Valencia played the ball in and there was it

:37:25.:37:28.

a hand ball by Shawcross? That was the claim. Manchester United looking

:37:29.:37:35.

for something a bit special and Lingard nearly found it. Ibrahimovic

:37:36.:37:42.

sliding the ball through. Lingard almost getting underneath the bar.

:37:43.:37:47.

Manchester United have done everything in the second half, Barr

:37:48.:37:52.

finds the back of the net. Rashford down, that will be a free kick. It's

:37:53.:37:58.

a card as well for Joe Allen. Wayne Rooney with the ball at his feet.

:37:59.:38:06.

Deep in added time. Rooney's delivery, oh, it's a sensational

:38:07.:38:12.

goal! Wayne Rooney, record-breaker! That's number 250. What a way to

:38:13.:38:21.

break the record. And Wayne Rooney now stands alone as Manchester

:38:22.:38:26.

United's record goal-scorer. And in the nick of time, Rooney rescues

:38:27.:38:37.

United. A brilliant strike. A special goal a landmark goal. And

:38:38.:38:47.

beautifully taken. Here comes N'Doye for Stoke City. Is there time for

:38:48.:38:53.

them to return? In towards Crouch. Wouldn't it be something if Crouch

:38:54.:38:59.

got on the end of that and made his landmark 100th goal? It was almost

:39:00.:39:03.

the last kick of the game, the most spectacular moment of the match, and

:39:04.:39:08.

Wayne Rooney scores his record-breaking 250th goal for

:39:09.:39:11.

Manchester United in the nick of time, to rescue a point at the end

:39:12.:39:15.

of a pull sating afternoon. The final score, Stoke City one,

:39:16.:39:22.

Manchester United one. What a way to rescue a point? I don't know if I

:39:23.:39:29.

can call you rescue a point when we were in the game for 70 minutes and

:39:30.:39:34.

created chances after chances, Web David De Gea doesn't touch the ball.

:39:35.:39:40.

Where we score in our own goal, where we missed the post, we missed

:39:41.:39:46.

chances some of them with an own -- an open goal, just needing a tap in.

:39:47.:39:50.

I don't know if it's a rescue, I don't know if I'm happy, because I'm

:39:51.:39:56.

not happy. We got done with an outstanding piece of skill and Wayne

:39:57.:39:59.

Rooney has been doing that throughout his career and we didn't

:40:00.:40:03.

want him to break the record today, but to do it in that manner you have

:40:04.:40:07.

to hold your hands up and sometimes applaud. It was fantastic play. It

:40:08.:40:11.

was a little bit harder nosed Wood is, in the 95th minute, -- it was a

:40:12.:40:18.

bit hard on us, but unfortunately the referee did that and it gave

:40:19.:40:22.

them enough time to get that one opportunity that they needed to get

:40:23.:40:26.

something out of the game. It was a spectacular goal under special goal

:40:27.:40:31.

for Wayne Rooney in the history of Manchester United? Yes, it was

:40:32.:40:34.

important for him and he's an incredible achievement -- it's an

:40:35.:40:40.

incredible achievement for his career, to have Manchester United

:40:41.:40:45.

record, and a record that belonged to a legend like Sir Bobby, and now

:40:46.:40:51.

Wayne Rooney is the man, and Wayne Rooney becomes obviously a legend

:40:52.:40:56.

for our club. Earlier on I spoke to Manchester United's record

:40:57.:41:00.

goal-scorer, Wayne Rooney. Wayne, the all-time English leading

:41:01.:41:04.

goal-scorer and now the all-time Manchester United leading

:41:05.:41:07.

goal-scorer. Described to us if you can what that means to you? Yes, and

:41:08.:41:22.

basically feeling it's a bit of a strange one at the minute. Having

:41:23.:41:24.

dropped two points but in the grand scheme of things it's a huge moment

:41:25.:41:27.

for myself, which will live with me for the rest of my life. Wanted it

:41:28.:41:30.

mean to go past a legend like Sir Bobby Charlton? Such an iconic

:41:31.:41:34.

figure at Manchester United and has been for many years, someone when

:41:35.:41:38.

you sign for the you realise the important, how important he is to

:41:39.:41:41.

the football club, so to does pass him in goals is something I never

:41:42.:41:47.

even thought of -- to go past him in goals is something I never even

:41:48.:41:50.

thought of. He congratulated me at the end of the game, he is pleased

:41:51.:41:54.

in some ways but it's a great honour for me. Did you also know you broke

:41:55.:41:58.

another record today? The most away goals ever scored by a Premier

:41:59.:42:03.

League player. You beat Alan Shearer! No, I didn't know that.

:42:04.:42:09.

Obviously that's great. I'm still a long way off the fans' all-time

:42:10.:42:19.

list, I'm not sure that will ever be broken, so I've made a career

:42:20.:42:25.

throughout -- I've made it clear throughout my career I'm a team

:42:26.:42:28.

player but I think records are important, especially when you

:42:29.:42:30.

finish playing, it's something you can look back on and something for

:42:31.:42:35.

when your kids grow older, they can look at. Today, it's a proud moment

:42:36.:42:39.

and I have to get ready now for the game on Thursday. Thanks for talking

:42:40.:42:43.

to others and many congratulations from everyone at Match Of The Day.

:42:44.:42:48.

All right, thanks a lot. A brilliant achievement, there he is alongside

:42:49.:42:58.

so many wonderful names from Manchester United's history. It's a

:42:59.:42:59.

brilliant achievement, his record goal scorers for England, for his

:43:00.:43:02.

country, does he get the credit he deserves? No, he takes a necessary

:43:03.:43:07.

stick. Why do you think that is? Probably because he hasn't really

:43:08.:43:10.

done it other than in one tournament for England, of course with Man

:43:11.:43:15.

United I don't think helps him at times but what a strike. 250 goals.

:43:16.:43:22.

When you consider it stood, that record, 444 years, for him to go

:43:23.:43:26.

past someone as iconic as Sir Bobby, with him being there, being in the

:43:27.:43:29.

dressing room to celebrate with him, to beat England's top scorer, to be

:43:30.:43:34.

Man United's top scorer, what an unbelievable achievement. He's had

:43:35.:43:39.

one hell of a career. Perspective from further afield, Ruud? It's

:43:40.:43:44.

difficult, it's a bit like Cantona. He is famous in England but never

:43:45.:43:52.

done it with France. In Europe, know he did well here, but not so much in

:43:53.:43:55.

Europe. The same with Rooney. We all follow the Premiership. He's the top

:43:56.:43:59.

scorer for his country as well. But he didn't do it in a tournament. The

:44:00.:44:05.

first one when he was young, that was fantastic, of course he's a hero

:44:06.:44:08.

for a lot of people. People talk about the finances in the game

:44:09.:44:12.

nowadays. Wayne Rooney is a guy that would play for 50 quid a week. He

:44:13.:44:16.

never feigns injury, never pulls out of England squad, a superb attitude.

:44:17.:44:24.

Why Bob and it would be a hell of a drop-in wages, wouldn't it? United

:44:25.:44:26.

looked like they would leave with nothing. It was one way all the

:44:27.:44:32.

time. His Ibrahimovic, a great cross, should have scored here. How

:44:33.:44:36.

much better do you want it? This is a waste. Then here, Zlatan tries to

:44:37.:44:44.

be clever. Just hit it on target, why? Mkhitaryan, bobbles up, and

:44:45.:44:46.

other waste. Pogba. So many chances here. Rashford,

:44:47.:45:00.

also. Great chance. You know, I can sum them up - there are so many of

:45:01.:45:04.

them. Unbelievable. Difficult from Wayne Rooney. Of course he finishes

:45:05.:45:09.

it well. I think Manchester United, you know, you are getting concerned

:45:10.:45:12.

if they don't get any chances, but they create so many. We said that,

:45:13.:45:18.

four or five times this season with Manchester United, there is the

:45:19.:45:22.

stats there. The efforts on goal they dominated teams and so many

:45:23.:45:25.

shots at goal. So many times times you can say you have been unlucky.

:45:26.:45:30.

You have to say, come on guys. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been

:45:31.:45:32.

brilliant. He can't do it every single game. The other guys have to

:45:33.:45:36.

chip in with goals. Stoke, one defeat in their last nine home

:45:37.:45:42.

games? They make it tough for teams. There they were under the kosh

:45:43.:45:45.

today. They worked their socks off today to get that point. Certainly

:45:46.:45:46.

did. Swansea's win in the early

:45:47.:45:49.

game piled the pressure Sunderland, who've been

in the bottom three since September, were in action at West Brom

George Honeyman makes his first Premier League debut for Sunderland.

:46:16.:46:18.

He was on-loan at Gateshead this time last season. David Moyes squad

:46:19.:46:23.

seriously depleted by injuries to eight players and African nation

:46:24.:46:31.

callups to three. Morrison. Phillips. Clipped out nicely. Rondon

:46:32.:46:42.

at the back post, was he being held? It certainly looked like he might

:46:43.:46:48.

have been. West Brom thought they had a good shout here. He's pulled

:46:49.:46:54.

him. He's got his arm around his ribs and he's pulled him. Tony Pulis

:46:55.:47:06.

is right to protest. Good run by Brunt, accelerating away from Jones.

:47:07.:47:11.

Here's Chadli. Three in the Ied middle for him. Chadli, it's a good

:47:12.:47:16.

run. Rondon, oh, my goodness me, it was going in. Hit Phillips and went

:47:17.:47:24.

wide for a goal kick. It's a good leader. Matt Phillips cannot believe

:47:25.:47:35.

what he's done. Fletcher. Phillips! Good try. Well saved, Mannone. It's

:47:36.:47:45.

a really good strike by Phillips. Pushed away well by Vito Mannone.

:47:46.:47:51.

It's West Brom's first corner of the game, just short of the half-hour

:47:52.:47:52.

mark. Phillips, Brunt got a head on it.

:47:53.:48:06.

McAuley in, and 1-0. A brilliant finish. Darren Fletcher turns and

:48:07.:48:11.

volleys West Bromwich Albion in front. Real quality finish here. In

:48:12.:48:19.

by McAuley, he had the space, but didn't he use it well. Chest, turn,

:48:20.:48:25.

volley - goal! And Darren Fletcher scores a goal to remember. It's

:48:26.:48:36.

McAuley, angled away to Fletcher. West Brom throw.

:48:37.:48:42.

James Morrison, he did well to find Phillips. Phillips has knocked it

:48:43.:48:49.

tlup through the legs of O'Shea. Desperate for it in the middle.

:48:50.:48:54.

Chadli, surely. Oh, he's hit the bar. Brunt, great finish. Brilliant

:48:55.:49:00.

finish. Oh, how about that from Chris Brunt? Phillips here running

:49:01.:49:11.

in O'Shea. Mannone, Chadli, somehow, hit the bar from know distance and

:49:12.:49:15.

Brunt nearly broke the net from the edge of the box. Absolutely smashed

home by Chris Brunt. This is a good spell of the game for Sunderland,

:49:23.:49:25.

probably their best Secretary of State far.

:49:26.:49:32.

-- so far. Yacob made the block. It's a free-kick. Only a foot or so

:49:33.:49:45.

outside the penalty area here. Claudio Yacob. A long blue and white

:49:46.:49:54.

ball. It's Patrick van Aanholt to hit that wall. George Honeyman

:49:55.:49:57.

trying to bring it down. Van Aanholt, again. The chance is gone.

:49:58.:50:02.

The first one hit the Albion wall. When it came back to van Aanholt, he

:50:03.:50:08.

struck it pretty sweetly on the half-volley, but rising. 15, 20

:50:09.:50:13.

minutes of this second-half have been mostly Sunderland. Tony Pulis'

:50:14.:50:15.

side still lead by 2-0. Fletcher. James McClean for West Bromwich

:50:16.:50:31.

Albion. Good position, Livermore. Almost a debut goal for Jake

:50:32.:50:36.

Livermore. Good ball by McClean. Had to look up, he put it into a good

:50:37.:50:43.

position. Spotted Livermore. Here's Jones. Berahino, fouled by Brunt.

:50:44.:50:53.

Free-kick to Sunderland. Brunt very unhappy, six minutes to go. Patrick

:50:54.:50:59.

van Aanholt and Larsson over it, as per usual. The Larsson, Anichebe. It

:51:00.:51:05.

was meant for van Aanholt. Broken down horribly. Livermore is forward,

:51:06.:51:09.

McClean is forward, Rondon is forward. Honeyman has fouled him. I

:51:10.:51:19.

think it was an attempt to play-the-ball by Honeyman. Not a

:51:20.:51:25.

particularly good one. 2-0, West Bromwich Albion. Phillips' ball in.

:51:26.:51:34.

Out by Rodwell. Darren Fletcher here is saying that there was an elbow

:51:35.:51:38.

used as this came into the penalty area. This is what Fletcher is

:51:39.:51:51.

referring to. He's punched him. That rather reminds me of Moussa Sissoko

:51:52.:51:55.

on Harry Arter when Spurs played at Bournemouth earlier this season.

:51:56.:51:59.

Sissoko was retrospectfully banned. First half I thought we played

:52:00.:52:03.

really well. Second-half you have to give credit to Sunderland. They

:52:04.:52:06.

stepped it up and changed their shape. They had more of the game. We

:52:07.:52:12.

played better in the second-half than the first half, that's for

:52:13.:52:15.

sure. We are giving poor goals away at the moment. We are doing

:52:16.:52:18.

everything we can to eradicate it. It's a disease at the moment we've

:52:19.:52:23.

got. Mott many of us get the feeling of striking the ball so well? It was

:52:24.:52:26.

nice to be up there to be able to shot. It's always lovely to score a

:52:27.:52:30.

goal. Especially when it leads to three points as well. It's great.

:52:31.:52:34.

It's nice feeling. I have family over this weekend. My little boy was

:52:35.:52:37.

up there as well. Nice for them to see it, too. We are not that far

:52:38.:52:42.

away. Three points more, that is where Sunderland would expect to be

:52:43.:52:46.

anyway. We are not that far away from it. We have to keep going and

:52:47.:52:51.

try our turn for results is around the corner. Incident at the end. It

:52:52.:52:55.

looks like contact made? We will let the people in the studio deal with

:52:56.:52:59.

that. I've got... They get paid a lot of money for doing that sort of

:53:00.:53:04.

stuff. I'll leave it to them. We will come to that shortly. Another

:53:05.:53:08.

strong performance from West Brom. Two great goals as well. David Moyes

:53:09.:53:12.

described his team as having a disease at the moment. Is it

:53:13.:53:17.

curable, Ruud? There is XI men in the box. Maybe too many people.

:53:18.:53:22.

Nobody takes decision. They lose a header. Lose another one. Fletcher,

:53:23.:53:27.

great goal. Van Aanholt, go forward, put pressure on. He can turn around

:53:28.:53:32.

and it's a great goal. But, know, if you do this, then after this.

:53:33.:53:41.

Through his legs. Also, poor save by the goalkeeper. He misses it. Oh,

:53:42.:53:46.

what a cracker that is. What a strike. I saw before, I saw a

:53:47.:53:52.

free-kick of Sunderland that was a counter-attack for the opposite

:53:53.:53:55.

side. We saw one or two of those. Tony Pulis raised it, you get paid

:53:56.:53:59.

loads of money for that. I know you would down it for ?50, Alan! Forlan

:54:00.:54:05.

nothing, Gary. What do you think? As if David Moyes hasn't got enough

:54:06.:54:08.

problems, I think he might have another problem next week when the

:54:09.:54:11.

FA look at this. Djilobodji on Fletcher. He tries to get rid of

:54:12.:54:17.

him, but he catches him. I think the referee has a decent view of it

:54:18.:54:22.

there. I think he strikes with both hands. I think he will get a call

:54:23.:54:28.

from the FA next week. There it is. There you go. Two hands, not just

:54:29.:54:31.

one, two hands. OK. Crystal Palace have picked up just

:54:32.:54:34.

one point from four games They hosted Everton,

who went into the game chasing Jonathan Pearce

:54:38.:54:40.

was at Selhurst Park. COMMENTATOR: Belgium brothers in

:54:41.:54:50.

arms, foe today. Christian Benteke has outscored Romelu Lukaku five

:54:51.:54:54.

goals to four when they have been on opposite sides. Lukaku has four

:54:55.:55:02.

goals in seven matches. Jeff Schlupp makes his debut. Remy gets a first

:55:03.:55:06.

league start as they change to a back three. Manchester City were put

:55:07.:55:09.

to the sword. In towards Benteke! Off the

:55:10.:55:29.

woodwork. Lovely move by Crystal Palace. They were unlucky. Remy.

:55:30.:55:34.

Towering above his marker. 19 games here since the start of

:55:35.:55:53.

2016. Barkley. Wriggled into space, still going. Got the shot away. Good

:55:54.:56:00.

work by Ross Barkley. This is why he emerged in recent years as one of

:56:01.:56:04.

the most promising of England's young players. Pushing and shoving.

:56:05.:56:10.

Williams is trying to get his markers away. Mirallas. Here's

:56:11.:56:18.

Davies. Barry. Williams. He did well. Mirallas! Good save. Hit with

:56:19.:56:31.

power, didn't have to move a great deal Wayne Hendrie i I. Remy, no

:56:32.:56:39.

free-kick, no free-kick at all. Referee should go back and have a

:56:40.:56:44.

word with him. Strong carry here by Barkley. Lukaku. There's the

:56:45.:56:54.

pullback, here's the chance. Away by Tomkins. Dropped to Barry. Clever

:56:55.:56:59.

header. Lukaku off the post, in by Barkley. It won't count, he's

:57:00.:57:03.

offside. He deserved the goal, but that doesn't count. No question

:57:04.:57:07.

about it. Good decision. He's played very well. Palace digging in deep,

:57:08.:57:15.

they will need to here. Coleman, to take on McArthur. Wants it back on

:57:16.:57:21.

to his right foot. Fizzes it in and then off by Delaney. Playing

:57:22.:57:31.

sweeping control football, the other team is scratching for form and

:57:32.:57:35.

points. Williams, gets there. Important defending, away. Ah,

:57:36.:57:44.

brilliant save, to deny Funes Mori. What about Williams strength and all

:57:45.:57:48.

about the goalkeeper. Really good reaction save. It was punishing as

:57:49.:57:54.

it came towards him. Wayne Hennessey 0, Everton 0. Tom Davies. Good

:57:55.:58:04.

vision. Lovely ball away to Barkley. It would have been a peach of a

:58:05.:58:09.

goal. Lovely weight on the pass in the end. Best pass of the game. Pace

:58:10.:58:14.

and commitment together from Barkley, across the face of goal.

:58:15.:58:23.

Cabaye, well played out Crystal Palace. McArthur couldn't get away.

:58:24.:58:29.

Veers away. Brilliant break here from Ross Barkley. He did everything

:58:30.:58:36.

right. Back across the goal, the shot, it could have gone in, could

:58:37.:58:42.

have come off the goalkeeper and the follow-up tapped into the back of

:58:43.:58:44.

the net. The game is at a crossroads. You sense that Crystal

:58:45.:58:50.

Palace's position could be at the crossroads if this game goes against

:58:51.:58:56.

them. Can Christian Benteke set up a counter. Lukaku up alongside him.

:58:57.:59:01.

Yellow shirts back. Benteke to McArthur. Baines has knocked him

:59:02.:59:06.

over, why Leighton Baines? No need to make the challenge there when

:59:07.:59:10.

Everton had six, yellow shirts back defending.

:59:11.:59:14.

In it comes. Saved! Dann so close for Crystal Palace. Delaney, spooned

:59:15.:59:27.

it. Still persisting. A touch would have

:59:28.:59:45.

sent him over. Everton can play on, he's off the pitch, he doesn't need

:59:46.:59:49.

treatment, he's worked his way back onto the pitch. He's rolled back

:59:50.:59:55.

onto the pitch, hasn't been off the pitch. That actually is a caution a

:59:56.:59:58.

bull offence. The referee is playing on, the referee will not stop it so

:59:59.:00:03.

that Palace will give treatment to Schlupp for cramp. Here's Bains.

:00:04.:00:12.

Onto his right foot, Barkley. The keeper did very, very well. Saw it

:00:13.:00:21.

late, Davies into the box. It comes to Coleman. They were down to ten

:00:22.:00:32.

men, Schlupp still receiving treatment, and the referee didn't

:00:33.:00:35.

stop it! Should the referee have stopped it? It might have been

:00:36.:00:40.

offside. That's the bigger question to me. Once he got into that

:00:41.:00:43.

position, Crystal Palace were struggling, but that is the position

:00:44.:00:48.

that Schlupp would have defended. A brilliant finish to give Everton the

:00:49.:00:52.

point. Schlupp still getting treatment. The crucial fact is, when

:00:53.:00:57.

he first suffered from cramp he was off the field of play. He rolled

:00:58.:01:04.

himself back onto the field of play. There a smoke bomb. A nasty taste in

:01:05.:01:09.

the mouth of the Crystal Palace match. Everton winning at Selhurst

:01:10.:01:13.

Park by 1-0. Did you feel Everton should have

:01:14.:01:18.

kicked the ball out? No, I feel referee should blow the whistle, the

:01:19.:01:20.

referee should take more responsibility. It's not within the

:01:21.:01:25.

bounds of the game for any player on the opposition side or your side to

:01:26.:01:29.

kick a ball out of play. It's about the referee making the decision,

:01:30.:01:33.

being the manager on the field. I was happy what happened because I

:01:34.:01:37.

heard the player was out of the pitch and there was no reason to

:01:38.:01:42.

stop the play, and OK, if he decides to come on the pitch and to lie and

:01:43.:01:47.

to wait, it's a problem of the player. It was always going to be a

:01:48.:01:52.

tough game. It was important to come down here and try and come away with

:01:53.:01:55.

three points. Thankfully, we kept going until the end and I'm very

:01:56.:01:59.

happy to come up with the winner. I've been here before and if the

:02:00.:02:04.

team believes as much as I do, if the players believe as much as I do,

:02:05.:02:09.

we'll get out of it. A long way to go yet, a bit of controversy

:02:10.:02:18.

surrounding the goal. Clear it of -- clear it up for us? Sam is wrong.

:02:19.:02:20.

The referee has no obligation to stop this just because Schlupp goes

:02:21.:02:24.

down injured, off the pitch there. It's not a serious injury. He rolls

:02:25.:02:29.

himself back onto the pitch. Which suggests it's not serious. It

:02:30.:02:33.

suggests it's not serious, so the referee doesn't have to stop the

:02:34.:02:37.

play. That is the position he should have been in, down the right-hand

:02:38.:02:41.

side, left back. I mentioned Davies last week, superb touch, he's not

:02:42.:02:50.

offside, Joel Ward on the far end is keeping him onside, a brilliant

:02:51.:02:53.

pass, and an even better finish. Sam has got that wrong, but a very big

:02:54.:02:56.

win for Everton. It is and Everton are going well on a decent run of

:02:57.:02:59.

form. But you were not the slightest bit impressed with Crystal Palace's

:03:00.:03:04.

front two? No, there's a losing mentality in that team and they have

:03:05.:03:08.

to do better, going forward. I know they concede a lot of goals.

:03:09.:03:11.

Benteke, eight league goals this season, Remy hasn't played much

:03:12.:03:14.

football at all, and that is a brilliant ball. Benteke should be

:03:15.:03:17.

getting on the end of that. I don't know what he's hanging out there

:03:18.:03:21.

for. Puncheon through the middle, he's looking for a bit of movement

:03:22.:03:25.

from Benteke or Remy, neither of them do anything. Sloppy, poor. Not

:03:26.:03:30.

causing a threat at all. That's a good ball. You would expect Benteke

:03:31.:03:34.

to go and win that header. Even the players stopped running forward to

:03:35.:03:39.

is supporting because it doesn't make an attempt to do it. It's a

:03:40.:03:43.

poor ball in, he ends up on the deck. He gets one-on-one with

:03:44.:03:49.

Holgate, he's in the box, I'm thinking he can't tackle you, he

:03:50.:03:53.

takes it off him far too easily. It's not enough from Palace, they

:03:54.:03:57.

have to do better and they are in serious trouble. Everton going well.

:03:58.:04:00.

from Reid. Lanzini, a beautiful work from West Ham. It's Antonio. He

:05:49.:05:54.

couldn't get the touch that was required. Beautifully fashioned

:05:55.:05:58.

this, from the minsters. Antony Noghes for it to be played across.

:05:59.:06:04.

It was and as he looks for the finish he got to faint a touch on it

:06:05.:06:09.

-- Antonio asked for it to be played across. Antonio in lots of space.

:06:10.:06:13.

Across goes Bernardo. Corner. The first corner that Victor Valdes

was fabulous play by Adama Traore, but nobody in red anticipated that

kind of quality delivery, otherwise Boro would have been 2-1 in front.

Good save, Carroll. No offside. Carroll at the double. West Ham

:08:26.:08:29.

offside. He wasn't when the ball was struck. Carroll helps himself to the

:08:30.:08:33.

second of the day. Middlesbrough one, West Ham United two. A heavy

:08:34.:08:40.

touch from Ogbonna. Obiang took him out of trouble. The referee got a

:08:41.:08:47.

touch on that. It swung for West Ham. Into the path of Lanzini.

:08:48.:08:52.

Straight at the Goldfinger. Now, that might be a costly mess from the

:08:53.:08:56.

Argentine. He knows he should have put that one away. There's a touch

:08:57.:09:01.

off the referee, Atkinson, but Lanzini is in here and scuffs the

:09:02.:09:05.

shot. I just wonder if it will come back and haunt them.

:09:06.:09:17.

Traore has found across and it's a great save by Randolph. It's gone

:09:18.:09:28.

behind for the corner. Marten de Roon really attacked this and almost

:09:29.:09:34.

finds the bottom corner. Randolph at full stretch to keep it out. That

:09:35.:09:41.

clearance turned into a good pass, if Traore can get away from Byram.

:09:42.:09:44.

He's done brilliantly to feed Negredo. Christian Stuani at the

:09:45.:09:51.

back post, Cresswell, then Reid as calm as you like to just it back to

:09:52.:09:56.

Randolph. Well, that was incredible. Cresswell must have known that

:09:57.:09:59.

Christian Stuani was on his shoulder. Fabulous work initially by

:10:00.:10:05.

Traore. Got away from two, fed it to Negredo. Cresswell had a look there,

:10:06.:10:08.

thought he could clear it. I think it came off the chest of Christian

:10:09.:10:15.

Stuani, them against the bar. Lanzini again, over the top. Calleri

:10:16.:10:23.

is in, and Calleri is wide. Well, they have had opportunities second

:10:24.:10:26.

half, West Ham. A couple early doors, and this is a marvellous

:10:27.:10:30.

chance for the 23-year-old to score his first ever Premier League goal.

:10:31.:10:36.

Gibson is looking for Negredo. And Gestede. Andy Carroll scored a

:10:37.:10:45.

cracker. Not dissimilar situation a week ago, but the accuracy was

:10:46.:10:53.

lacking. Away by a -- away by Ogbonna. Need from Lanzini. Antonio,

:10:54.:10:59.

away from Bernardo, and West Ham have players over here. It's

:11:00.:11:03.

Calleri. They are looking for Lanzini. It looked easier to score.

:11:04.:11:09.

Still the chance is there for Calleri, and he's in. It came off

:11:10.:11:13.

Adam Clayton. And West Ham have wrapped up the points. They will ask

:11:14.:11:20.

a question, Dmitri who? They counterattack really well. It looked

:11:21.:11:24.

as though the chance had gone here, when they looks for Lanzini rather

:11:25.:11:27.

than the back of the net, but Lanzini kept it alive. Calleri

:11:28.:11:33.

chanced his arm. It's off Clayton's knee, and Middlesbrough have lost

:11:34.:11:36.

another one. Middlesbrough one, West Ham United three. It was a good

:11:37.:11:43.

weight for others after Palace, we had confidence against them and we

:11:44.:11:48.

used the momentum to build on that and to come here and put out a

:11:49.:11:53.

really strong performance and get three massive points for us. We

:11:54.:11:58.

played good, with a good performance. It's great. Are you

:11:59.:12:04.

still reckon -- relegation battle? We knew before this and again at the

:12:05.:12:12.

end of the season, I had signed the first game of the season and it will

:12:13.:12:19.

be perfect for us. I thought the lads played well. Obviously the goal

:12:20.:12:25.

at the end, it killed the game. But at the end of the day we've got the

:12:26.:12:29.

three points we came here for and everyone is delighted. I'm sure he's

:12:30.:12:32.

delighted more than anyone, Andy Carroll is on fire. Yes, with his

:12:33.:12:40.

ninja haircut like Zlatan, the big guys doing well. I like his

:12:41.:12:44.

movement, goes forward, backward, unstoppable. You can see from a

:12:45.:12:47.

different perspective even better. Bernardo is not sleeping, doesn't

:12:48.:12:53.

know where he is, and a powerful header. Beautiful. I like this one

:12:54.:12:57.

for the young kids watching. Just watch the difference in reaction

:12:58.:13:02.

from forwards and defenders. Expecting it, mistake the forwards

:13:03.:13:06.

and reacting to a mistake, the defenders. Too late to react. You've

:13:07.:13:10.

got to expect the forwards do that and he gets his look, the Andy

:13:11.:13:14.

Carroll, with a tap in. Following, you always have a chance. Boro in a

:13:15.:13:20.

dogfight, one win in eight games. Aitor Karanka has had a bit of a pop

:13:21.:13:24.

at the home crowd, saying they can't expect us to just change our game

:13:25.:13:29.

plan and play long balls, etc, etc. I don't think there's a problem, if

:13:30.:13:38.

you're passing game isn't working there's no problem going to plan B.

:13:39.:13:43.

Manchester United last week, brought on Fellaini. It's not wise to

:13:44.:13:45.

criticise your own crowd when you are near the bottom of the league.

:13:46.:13:49.

Bournemouth have conceded three goals or more in eight

:13:50.:13:51.

They hosted a Watford side who've not won in six league games,

:13:52.:13:55.

Conor McNamara was at the Vitality Stadium.

:13:56.:14:00.

COMMENTATOR: Two clubs looking for their first Premier League wins of

:14:01.:14:09.

2017. Bournemouth's leaky defence is a concern for Eddie Howe.

:14:10.:14:12.

Bournemouth are still four points better off than they were this time

:14:13.:14:16.

last season. These clubs were promoted to the top-flight together

:14:17.:14:20.

in 2015. It was a close fought battle. Bournemouth beat Watford to

:14:21.:14:22.

the title by just one point. Walter Mazzarri looking for a solid

:14:23.:14:37.

performance. His team have Laois their last five away games in the

:14:38.:14:43.

league. Stanislas. Jack Wilshere. Good ball. Fraser. Aware that Gomes

:14:44.:14:53.

was off his like. Aerobatic goalkeeping. Very good goalkeeping.

:14:54.:14:58.

12th time he has faced Watford as a manager, Eddie Howe. He only won two

:14:59.:15:06.

of them in the past. Wilshere now. Wilshere goes himself. Gomes makes

:15:07.:15:14.

the save. Jack Wilshere is still looking for his first goal for

:15:15.:15:18.

Bournemouth. A good strike. A little bit too close to the goalkeeper.

:15:19.:15:23.

These sides met in the Championship in 2015, they had a player sent off

:15:24.:15:29.

in 26 seconds. It was a red card that was rescinded they had to play

:15:30.:15:36.

virtually the whole match with 10-men. Boruc miss-Kewed. Cleverley

:15:37.:15:41.

unable to capitalise and take advantage. Oh, they have done it

:15:42.:15:48.

again. Three miss-placed passes. It's out for a corner. This was just

:15:49.:15:53.

a catalogue of errors. That was the final of the three miss placed

:15:54.:15:58.

passes. Bournemouth very, very fortunate. Holebas prepares to

:15:59.:16:04.

deliver. Lukaku was at the front post, headed back in. The opening

:16:05.:16:10.

goal by Christian Kabasele, only his second goal for Watford. Bournemouth

:16:11.:16:15.

will be disappointed to concede from the corner. Britos didn't try to go

:16:16.:16:23.

for goal himself. The Belgian, Christian Kabasele, makes it

:16:24.:16:31.

Bournemouth 0, Watford 1. Here is Adam Smith. That's a good lunge into

:16:32.:16:36.

the penalty area. It's finished by Josh King. It's only his second goal

:16:37.:16:43.

in 15 Premier League appearances. Lots of congratulations for Smith

:16:44.:16:47.

for setting it up and King, who scored against Watford in October,

:16:48.:16:57.

has done it again. It's 1-1. The opening third of this season Watford

:16:58.:17:01.

had their best start to a top-flight campaign since the glory days of

:17:02.:17:08.

Graham Taylor in the mid 1980s. Gone off the boil a little bit in recent

:17:09.:17:12.

weeks. Good performance so far today. Holebas. On his right boot,

:17:13.:17:17.

his less favoured. He struck that really well. Just got his finger

:17:18.:17:25.

tips to it, the Polish keeper. Stanislas.

:17:26.:17:33.

Wilshere. A little nutmeg on clever Cleverley. This is Fraser. Oh, so

:17:34.:17:44.

close! Ryan Fraser, who scored against Swansea on New Year's Eve,

:17:45.:17:47.

scored against Arsenal in Bournemouth's last home game here.

:17:48.:17:51.

He did everything right in the build-up. It's a good save. In this

:17:52.:17:58.

weekend of presidential inauguration in the US, worth remembering when

:17:59.:18:02.

Barack Obama was inaugurated, Bournemouth were 23rd in League Two.

:18:03.:18:08.

They have come a long, long way. Free-kick from Holebas. Britos with

:18:09.:18:16.

the header initially. Almost came down for Kabasele. There is appeals

:18:17.:18:20.

it struck an arm. The referee, Lee Mason, says corner. Deeney heads it

:18:21.:18:26.

down. Kabasele, it's driven into the upper shoulder of Josh King. No way

:18:27.:18:29.

he can get out of the way of that. Cleverley's corner. That's a good

:18:30.:18:34.

delivery. The goalkeeper was unable to clear it. Boruc just came and

:18:35.:18:41.

flapped at it, but couldn't prevent Troy Deeney from restoring Watford's

:18:42.:18:45.

lead. Bournemouth 1, Watford 2. Look how close Deeney is to Boruc as it

:18:46.:18:53.

comes in? It's a very good finish by Troy Deeney, his 101st goal for

:18:54.:18:57.

Watford,, and the visitors lead, once again. Watford have allowed

:18:58.:19:01.

Bournemouth back into it once already. Walter Mazzarri will not

:19:02.:19:12.

want that to happen again, now. Pugh has taken over from Fraser, fresh

:19:13.:19:16.

legs for Bournemouth. Treasure idea. Oh, Wilson at the front post was

:19:17.:19:23.

nearly there to touch it in. Mings. Daniels. Good defending by Kabasele.

:19:24.:19:40.

Afobe. A Watford player down. Afobe takes advantage to get a second

:19:41.:19:49.

equaliser of the game for Bournemouth. They are back on level

:19:50.:19:55.

terms again. It's Afobe's third of the season. A player was down

:19:56.:20:01.

nursing an injury. That helped to create a little bit of extra space.

:20:02.:20:07.

Surman's through ball. Afobe took full advantage. He's only been the

:20:08.:20:11.

pitch a few minutes. The first clean cut opportunity that came his way.

:20:12.:20:16.

It's a crucial, crucial goal for Eddie Howe. It's a strange one. I

:20:17.:20:21.

thought we played well in patches of today's game. We started well and

:20:22.:20:24.

put them on the back foot and did everything but score. We concede

:20:25.:20:28.

from two set plays and it's very difficult to take when you are so

:20:29.:20:30.

dominant in the game. Great character from the lads to bounce

:20:31.:20:34.

back. You had the lead twice today. Are you disappointed you couldn't

:20:35.:20:39.

hold on? TRANSLATION: I'm a bit disappointed

:20:40.:20:45.

because we deserved to win. Also, we committed too many mistakes and we

:20:46.:20:51.

paid a high price. But overall I'm happy on the performance of my team

:20:52.:21:00.

today. Have you any complaint with the second Bournemouth goal because

:21:01.:21:04.

Kabasele is clearly injured at the time. Because it's not a head injury

:21:05.:21:08.

the referee says play on? TRANSLATION: I prefer not to comment

:21:09.:21:12.

today on any referee decision. We will perhaps comment on it. There

:21:13.:21:17.

are always goals when Bournemouth play, Ruud, few as bizarre as the

:21:18.:21:21.

second equaliser? Unbelievable. If you look at it from the back

:21:22.:21:26.

Kabasele scored a goal. He went down on the moment they are attacking.

:21:27.:21:31.

Down his side. Down his side - goal. You know, at this moment, look at

:21:32.:21:36.

him here. His groin. Seems OK. Go on. No. And then he just decides to

:21:37.:21:45.

go down. Look. You can't do that. He goes down there. Look. Look - goal.

:21:46.:21:56.

He's pointing at his player - what the hell are you doing? Why are you

:21:57.:22:00.

on the ground? He's so upset. He goes to him. He just hits him on his

:22:01.:22:06.

head to say - what are you doing, come on. This is frustration. I

:22:07.:22:12.

think also the coach must be so frustrated about it as well. You

:22:13.:22:15.

need these points. Back-to-back draws for them now. Unbelievable.

:22:16.:22:20.

Off a bad run, no wins in seven for Watford? They are not on a great

:22:21.:22:25.

run. Eight points above the relegation zone. I don't think that

:22:26.:22:28.

will affect them. I think they will have enough for that. You are are

:22:29.:22:32.

right, no wins in seven. Bournemouth, always goals until

:22:33.:22:35.

their game? Middle of the table. Excellent season. Superb they are.

:22:36.:22:42.

Very good. We are just about out of time. Ruud thank you very much.

:22:43.:22:45.

Alan, as always, thank you very much indeed. Before we leave let's look

:22:46.:22:50.

at the Premier League table. Leaders Chelsea were

:22:51.:22:54.

the big winners today after Liverpool, Manchester City

:22:55.:22:56.

and Tottenham all dropped points. Antonio Conte's side go

:22:57.:22:58.

into Sunday's game against Hull Swansea's win at Anfield moved them

:22:59.:23:00.

off the bottom and out Sunderland replace them

:23:01.:23:04.

at the foot of the table with Sam Allardyce's Palace dropping

:23:05.:23:07.

into the relegation zone. Let us see what the Sunday papers

:23:08.:23:13.

have to say. Wayne Rooney's record-breaking afternoon hogs the

:23:14.:23:19.

headlines in the Sunday Times. The Express focuses on Jurgen Klopp's

:23:20.:23:23.

criticism of his defence following Liverpool's defeat to Swansea. And,

:23:24.:23:30.

the Mail on Sunday, they scrutinise Hugo Lloris mistakes at the Etihad.

:23:31.:23:35.

That's it, on the day Wayne Rooney broke the Manchester United

:23:36.:23:38.

goalscoring record with a strike that Bobby Charlton

:23:39.:23:40.

Gary Lineker presents highlights from the day's seven Premier League fixtures, including Tottenham's trip to Manchester City. Spurs attempt to complete the league double over their fellow title challengers at the Etihad Stadium.

Stoke earned a draw at Old Trafford earlier in the season and hope to take more points off Manchester United. High-flying Liverpool are at home to struggling Swansea in the day's early kick-off, Crystal Palace host Everton, West Brom take on Sunderland, West Ham are away to Middlesbrough and Bournemouth face Watford.
