How about that?

0:00:180:00:19

Just brilliant, just brilliant.

0:00:190:00:25

Oh, that is wonderful.

0:00:250:00:28

An absolute belter.

0:00:280:00:34

What a chance.

0:00:340:00:35

What a goal!

0:00:350:00:37

Blue is the colour of

the Premier League winners.

0:00:370:00:44

Hello, we've six games

from the Premier League

0:00:440:00:46

featuring the league leaders,

Champions League chasers

0:00:460:00:48

and relegation fighters.

0:00:480:00:51

Danny Murphy and Dion

Dublin have been

0:00:510:00:53

dissecting the action.

0:00:530:00:54

As Manchester City chase

a quartet of trophies,

0:00:540:00:56

their match with Leicester City

is their final involvement

0:00:560:00:58

in the Premier League until March.

0:00:580:01:01

Guardiola's side have a healthy lead

at the top despite two dropped

0:01:010:01:04

points at Burnley last weekend.

0:01:040:01:05

On Ryiad Mahrez watch

at the Ethiad, Guy Mowbray.

0:01:050:01:07

Back in training and now back in the

squad as a Leicester South, if Riyad

0:01:170:01:22

Mahrez gets on, the reaction of the

supporters will be interesting. Two

0:01:220:01:28

changes for Manchester City with

Vincent Kompany and Danilo on the

0:01:280:01:34

bench. Sergio Aguero has scored in

the last six home games, he has

0:01:340:01:39

previously not manage seven in a

row. Mahrez is a sub for Leicester.

0:01:390:01:45

Two changes. James is in. Claude

Puel well is going for three at the

0:01:450:01:53

back. With cup commitments for the

rest of this month, a Manchester

0:01:530:02:01

City win means they sign off from

the Premier League until March with

0:02:010:02:06

a minimum 13 point lead. Silva.

0:02:060:02:13

a minimum 13 point lead. Silva. De

Bruyne. It is in! That is a huge

0:02:160:02:22

weight off the shoulders of Raheem

Sterling after his glaring Merse

0:02:220:02:26

Burnley last week. He puts in a tap

in to give the Manchester City yet

0:02:260:02:32

another early lead. De Bruyne have

the time and room and did what he is

0:02:320:02:37

so often does. It into just the

right place by the Belgian and

0:02:370:02:41

Sterling was in the right place

ahead of Albrighton.

0:02:410:02:48

ahead of Albrighton. 1-0 to

Manchester City. Raheem Sterling

0:02:480:02:50

gets his 20th goal of the season, he

will be feeling a whole lot better

0:02:500:02:54

after that. Not that you can really

question his finishing all campaign.

0:02:540:03:00

Everyone makes the odd mistake.

Bounced back to him. Nicely by

0:03:000:03:08

Vardy. Can he get it over? He can.

Albrighton, it just too high for

0:03:080:03:14

Diabate. Chilwell. The first time

that Manchester City in any shape or

0:03:140:03:22

form have been under any sort of

pressure. Handball from Vardy to

0:03:220:03:29

Albrighton, needed to -- that ball

needed to be played with more pace.

0:03:290:03:37

Albrighton will take the corner.

Zinchenko.

0:03:370:03:43

Zinchenko. De Bruyne, Sterling...

What is he going to do with it? It

0:03:450:03:53

is out where all. It is a good

tackle. Christian Fuchs stops the

0:03:530:04:00

Manchester City counterattack.

Diabate. Dispossessed by Otamendi.

0:04:000:04:10

Zinchenko cannot stop them and

neither can Guendogan, it is Vardy

0:04:100:04:15

and it is 1-1. Brilliantly finished

by the Leicester number nine.

0:04:150:04:21

Manchester City could not move the

ball quickly enough and Leicester

0:04:210:04:25

moved it just right. With some help

from Otamendi. There is a lovely

0:04:250:04:33

touch. Just to make the room for the

shot. Away from Laporte. What a fine

0:04:330:04:38

finish it is. Little bit of a

deflection off Laporte helped and he

0:04:380:04:47

spins it away from Ederson. Vardy

has now scored in four Premier

0:04:470:04:52

League games in a row and out of

nowhere, it is 1-1 and we have a

0:04:520:04:59

game on. What our record of Vardy

has when their big games come

0:04:590:05:02

around. That is 43 Premier League

appearances, 23 goals against

0:05:020:05:09

current top six sides. There is De

Bruyne. Silva is stalling his probe

0:05:090:05:15

-- his progress. Zinchenko. De

Bruyne. Sterling. He went down in

0:05:150:05:25

the box. You can hear what Leicester

fans think of that. Mike Jones did

0:05:250:05:31

not think much about it, did not

think it was a foul or a dive.

0:05:310:05:40

think it was a foul or a dive. Here

he goes. He beats Albrighton. He

0:05:440:05:51

could not beat Schmeichel, it was a

good save. He went to put everything

0:05:510:05:55

he had behind the shot.

0:05:550:06:02

he had behind the shot. Still looks

a little like the odd couple in, and

0:06:030:06:10

at Leicester, Claude Puel well and

Michael Appleton. Bernardo Silva.

0:06:100:06:19

Dragovic, as far as Guendogan.

0:06:190:06:25

Dragovic, as far as Guendogan. De

Bruyne. Sterling! Beats 's to win

0:06:280:06:31

but misses the target. That must

have been a goal saving shot from

0:06:310:06:40

Dragovic, he has kept Leicester

level with that tackle. A change in

0:06:400:06:45

personnel and a change in shape for

Leicester, they have a back at four

0:06:450:06:51

now. Sterling. De Bruyne. Early ball

across an Sergio Aguero scorers!

0:06:510:07:00

They have scored inside three

minutes in the second half. A very

0:07:010:07:04

similar goal. In terms of, it is

another assist from Kevin De Bruyne

0:07:040:07:11

and it is another tap them, De

Bruyne found a way through to Sergio

0:07:110:07:17

Aguero whose scorers for the seventh

successive home game. 11 goals in

0:07:170:07:22

those home games, 25 for the season

in all competitions and all

0:07:220:07:28

stadiums, it is 2-12 Manchester

City. Every Manchester City player,

0:07:280:07:33

all those lucky enough to be the

beneficiaries of the brilliance of

0:07:330:07:37

De Bruyne at knowledge it every

time. Guendogan. De Bruyne. It just

0:07:370:07:45

would not quite stick between his

feet, preferred -- Fernandinho,

0:07:450:07:52

Sterling. Sterling is down. Around

the penalty area. Marc Albrighton is

0:07:520:07:58

making the point that he goes down

too easily. Albrighton, is he going

0:07:580:08:07

to easily to block, Mike Jones did

not see anything wrong. Walker.

0:08:070:08:16

Walker is going to chase that. It is

a chip and run. Schmeichel ways.

0:08:160:08:21

Fernandinho. De Bruyne. Up where

all! And he has forced it through

0:08:210:08:33

Schmeichel -- Sergio Aguero! The

game is running away from Leicester

0:08:330:08:40

now. And you have to give real

credit to Kyle Walker for the part

0:08:400:08:45

he played here. It looked like he

had misplaced the pass and their at

0:08:450:08:49

the attack had gone. -- and they are

at the attack had gone. Just a

0:08:490:08:58

glancing blow off Schmeichel, it had

to hit him fill in the chest to keep

0:08:580:09:02

it out. It squeezes in under his arm

and Manchester City for the first

0:09:020:09:07

time all afternoon have a two goal

cushion. And he just keeps on

0:09:070:09:13

scoring.

0:09:130:09:18

scoring. 195 Manchester City goals,

the double hundred is coming very,

0:09:190:09:21

very soon. Diabate is off and Riyad

Mahrez is on, in a game in which the

0:09:210:09:30

had the situation been different, he

might have been playing against

0:09:300:09:33

Leicester City.

0:09:330:09:39

Leicester City. Schmeichel has given

it straight to hug where all and

0:09:390:09:42

I'll go where all tips smite golf

another hat-trick. -- gives it

0:09:420:09:51

straight to Sergio Aguero.

0:09:510:09:57

straight to Sergio Aguero. This one

is the first goal that has not been

0:09:570:10:00

made by De Bruyne. It is symptomatic

of Schmeichel's kicking all day, it

0:10:000:10:08

is a tap pass to Aguero and a very

cool finish. The game is finished

0:10:080:10:15

now, 4-12 Manchester City. Sergio

Aguero has scored his third

0:10:150:10:22

hat-trick of the season. -- 4-1 two

Manchester City. Foden. He is at

0:10:220:10:34

him. Forced out of the area for a

moment. Aguero is looking for his

0:10:340:10:41

forward. Oh my goodness! Is there

anything he cannot do! Four goals in

0:10:410:10:53

the half for Sergio Aguero and that

one was a rocket shot.

0:10:530:11:02

one was a rocket shot. That is the

crowning moment on another

0:11:020:11:08

magnificent Manchester City day on

their way to being crowned Premier

0:11:080:11:11

League champions. There can be

little doubt about that. Perfect,

0:11:110:11:21

off the bar. He is one amazing

footballer. And for the third time

0:11:210:11:26

in a Manchester City shirt, Aguero

scorers four goals in a game. Four

0:11:260:11:34

goals in

0:11:340:11:34

scorers four goals in a game. Four

goals in a half today.

Can you find

0:11:340:11:36

any more words to describe De Bruyne

and Aguero?

No.

0:11:360:11:45

and Aguero?

No. One guy making a

mountain of assets is, right, left

0:11:460:11:52

and Sergio has an amazing talent,

trying to create a lot of chances,

0:11:520:11:58

to give them the opportunity to

score the goals that he scorers. He

0:11:580:12:02

is always there and I think it is

big congratulations, it is not easy

0:12:020:12:10

to score at four goals.

You started

with five at the back and you

0:12:100:12:14

changed it to four, would it have

made any difference?

Perhaps a

0:12:140:12:20

little more strong. We conceded a

lot of chances in the first half.

0:12:200:12:30

Perhaps they were a little lucky in

the first half. The second goal just

0:12:300:12:36

at the beginning of the second half

change the game.

After last week and

0:12:360:12:43

all the fuss about Bernie, was that

await off your mind?

The game seemed

0:12:430:12:48

like it was taking forever foot to

come around. We had a three-day

0:12:480:12:54

break and I could not wait to get

back out there.

I think the guys

0:12:540:13:01

want to be champions. So far, we

were at best team.

0:13:010:13:09

were at best team. -- we were the

best team. My advice for the players

0:13:120:13:15

is not to think about how many games

are left, focus on the next one.

I

0:13:150:13:21

think we are running out of

superlatives for Manchester City,

0:13:210:13:26

sublime again, Raheem Sterling

mentioned, he got an identical

0:13:260:13:30

chance that he missed against

Burnley. Lightning did not strike

0:13:300:13:36

twice in the same place although it

is a different ground.

0:13:360:13:40

twice in the same place although it

is a different ground.

I think this

0:13:400:13:42

was even a bit harder. De Bruyne was

fantastic today. He put it in. Good

0:13:420:13:49

luck to him, he is having a great

season.

He is saying to himself, I

0:13:490:13:55

am so glad that went in! He is brave

to put himself in that situation.

So

0:13:550:14:03

glad he is playing with Kevin De

Bruyne as well.

Stunning display

0:14:030:14:08

from Sergio Aguero. Does not

surprise me. He is a different

0:14:080:14:13

class. He puts himself into

positions and you have got to get

0:14:130:14:16

the ball to him. Look at the pass.

You should not be allowed to play

0:14:160:14:25

that pass. I have to say, Kasper

Schmeichel did not have the best

0:14:250:14:30

game. Look at Aguero on the

shoulder. That is one of his

0:14:300:14:35

favourite positions, onto his right

foot and Schmeichel had no chance at

0:14:350:14:40

close range. He did this time after

time. This one, he has to clear

0:14:400:14:46

that. You cannot give Aguero at

chance like that, that is a superb

0:14:460:14:51

finish. He lets the keeper go down

and chips it over the top. I want to

0:14:510:14:57

say the keepers should stop this but

I do not think he saw the ball until

0:14:570:15:01

it was behind him.

0:15:010:15:02

What a If you give player.

Him

chances like that he will score all

0:15:080:15:12

game.

Leicester did well in the

first half. Played a system we are

0:15:120:15:17

not acubsed to seeing Leicester play

with three or five at the back

0:15:170:15:21

whatever way you want to call it.

They changed at half-time,

0:15:210:15:23

strangely?

We were surprised. I

thought they were in in the game

0:15:230:15:28

first half. Manchester City you will

be opened up occasionally. Really

0:15:280:15:32

good on the counter. They frustrated

City. This is the five. When you see

0:15:320:15:37

this clip. You will see City keep

going inside because they can't get

0:15:370:15:41

round the side of them which is

where City like to go. They stretch

0:15:410:15:46

the pitch well. Pep works on that,

making the pitch big and giving them

0:15:460:15:50

options. When there are five it's

hard. They did frustrate City. Silva

0:15:500:15:57

in the middle of the park was doing

well. They get out. What Pep talked

0:15:570:16:02

about was spaces down the side for

his players. When you have the

0:16:020:16:06

quality of delivering that

Manchester City, you will be in

0:16:060:16:11

trouble. Especially if it's this

man, De Bruyne. You can see the

0:16:110:16:15

four, narrow. Big spaces either side

of them. With the distance they keep

0:16:150:16:20

from each other and the width they

get, Manchester City, time and time

0:16:200:16:23

again we could have showed five or

six clips of them dominating and

0:16:230:16:32

getting in wide areas.

They were in

the game.

They were in the game

0:16:320:16:36

more. That is where the change went

wrong.

A strange one. Manchester

0:16:360:16:40

City going from strength to

strength. People said when he came

0:16:400:16:43

last season - you can't do that

football in this country. He proved

0:16:430:16:46

everybody wrong be. Have we seen

anything quite as good as this team?

0:16:460:16:51

I don't think we've seen as many

good players in one team absolutely

0:16:510:16:55

dominating a league as they have.

The way they play the game. The way

0:16:550:16:58

they play out the back. Nobody

panicked, especially the goalkeeper.

0:16:580:17:03

The keeper is playing out and

picking passes.

Unbelievable. They

0:17:030:17:08

have the best passer I've ever seen

in the Premier League. That doesn't

0:17:080:17:11

help when you are a forward player.

Imagine how many you would have

0:17:110:17:16

scored -

I trust you mean De Bruyne

I do.

0:17:160:17:20

While Spurs are renovating

their new home, Wembley is the venue

0:17:200:17:23

for the 195th North London Derby.

0:17:230:17:24

And while the stadium might be

different, the same rivalry remains.

0:17:240:17:31

COMMENTATOR:

One of the most Fay

nows fixtures of them all.

Can you

0:17:310:17:36

believe this?

One of the most

memorable North London derbies.

What

0:17:360:17:41

a goal!

Oh, what a challenge.

Spurs

are turning it on.

Unbelievable.

0:17:410:17:49

Potentially a game-changer.

Game on,

again.

0:17:490:17:52

Your commentator for

this one, Steve Bower.

0:17:520:17:53

STEVE BOWER:

0:17:530:17:57

As if the stakes needed raising the

first Derby at Wembley where Arsenal

0:17:570:18:02

have won their last nine matches for

almost 25 years. A significant match

0:18:020:18:06

in the Champions League chase.

Arsenal defeat would leave them

0:18:060:18:10

seven points behind Spurs. Mauricio

Pochettino names the team that

0:18:100:18:14

started at Anfield last weekend.

Harry Kane scored that dramatic

0:18:140:18:18

100th Premier League goal. The

top-scorer has six goals in six

0:18:180:18:22

league games against Arsenal. Latest

recruit, Mora is on the bench.

0:18:220:18:31

Arsenal's hat-trick hero, Aaron

Ramsey is ruled out with a join

0:18:310:18:38

injury. El nony comes in. Petr Cech

starts in goal. The Gunners looking

0:18:380:18:44

to add to their 81 historical

victories. Spurs looking to increase

0:18:440:18:48

their number to 63. Well read.

Fabulous touch by Kane. Dele Alli is

0:18:480:18:58

away. Can Arsenal catch him? He is

trying to find Kane. A desperate

0:18:580:19:04

lung by Mustafi that needed dealing

with by Petr Cech. Important

0:19:040:19:11

interception from Mustafi.

0:19:110:19:18

52nd experience of the North London

Derby. He's only lost eight of them

0:19:200:19:24

help has faced a number of different

Spurs managers during that time.

0:19:240:19:34

Clever ball from Wilshere.

Aubameyang offside. The flag raised

0:19:340:19:40

immediately. It certainly did look

close. You could argue that's level

0:19:400:19:47

and on.

0:19:470:19:52

Son.

0:19:540:20:00

Eriksen takes over. In towards Kane.

Well, he looked to the referee's

0:20:000:20:11

assistant to see if the flag was up,

it wasn't he was onside. He's hit

0:20:110:20:16

very high standards, Harry Kane. By

those standards, he will be

0:20:160:20:20

disappointed he hasn't found the

target. Since he took charge, 35

0:20:200:20:27

points from 54 for Spurs at home

against the big guns. Ozil. Drop of

0:20:270:20:35

the shoulder from him. Again, the

space. This time for Bellerin. It

0:20:350:20:43

was always rising. Lloris had it

covered. Fair to say, it's yet to

0:20:430:20:49

catch fire.

0:20:490:20:53

Dier.

0:20:550:21:01

Now Davies. That's a better ball.

There's Kane. There's the

0:21:050:21:10

breakthrough. You cannot keep him

out of the headlines. Seven in seven

0:21:100:21:20

against Arsenal now for Harry Kane.

First blood Tottenham. A goal that

0:21:200:21:28

means the most against this

opposition for Harry Kane. They

0:21:280:21:32

stood off Davies. He leapt the

highest and steered it past Petr

0:21:320:21:36

Cech. Really good jump. No chance

for the Arsenal goalkeeper.

0:21:360:21:45

for the Arsenal goalkeeper. Arsene

Wenger unhappy, feeling that Harry

0:21:460:21:48

Kane used his arms to push Koscielny

out of the way. I don't think he's

0:21:480:21:52

got much of a case there. Trippier.

15 successive Premier League games

0:21:520:22:00

they've scored in. It could be

another one. It should have been a

0:22:000:22:05

another one for Kane, and he knows

it. He found space and got in

0:22:050:22:09

between the two central defenders,

again. Wilshere.

0:22:090:22:19

Now Mkhitaryan, offside flag is up.

0:22:190:22:23

Quickly taken. Eriksen on the

charge. Trippier to his right.

0:22:230:22:32

Around Wilshere. And he's picked out

Kane. Terrific save by Cech.

0:22:330:22:42

Excellent defending by Bellerin.

That was travelling. Sweet

0:22:420:22:46

connection here from Harry Kane,

straight at Cech, but he still had

0:22:460:22:49

to get everything in the way of it.

Excellent battling from Son. The

0:22:490:22:59

South Korean again, lovely feet.

Kane. That's excellent refereeing

0:22:590:23:05

from Anthony Taylor. Clear foul on

Son waited to see if Kane engained

0:23:050:23:10

any advantage. He didn't. He pulled

it back for a Spurs free-kick.

0:23:100:23:15

Christian Eriksen territory. A long

time to weigh this up. Here he

0:23:150:23:20

comes. Cech at full stretch with a

very important touch. Got across

0:23:200:23:25

quickly. He did well to turn that

over.

0:23:250:23:27

Lacazette. Lovely dummy from

Wilshere, now Ozil. Aubameyang away

0:23:320:23:39

to his left. Here comes Aubameyang.

0:23:390:23:46

Wilshere. Good try. First time Hugo

Lloris has been called into action

0:23:470:23:55

in the entire game. He was quickly

across to get two hands to that.

0:23:550:24:02

That Wilshere effort. Arsenal's

first effort on target in the North

0:24:020:24:07

London Derby.

0:24:070:24:11

Here's Dele Alli. Will Spurs be made

to pay for these opportunities

0:24:110:24:19

they're not taking? Another let-off

for Arsenal. Dele Alli was

0:24:190:24:25

definitely onside and he couldn't

steer it into the back of the net.

0:24:250:24:30

Another record crowd inside Wembley,

83,222. Still watching Spurs lead by

0:24:300:24:37

1-0. Vertonghen with the

interception. Kane's touch. Oh, it's

0:24:370:24:45

super football from Tottenham. Here

goes Lamela. Denied by Cech. Another

0:24:450:24:53

one to the list of Tottenham's

second-half chances. Still, they

0:24:530:24:57

can't find what they will feel to be

the all-important second goal.

0:24:570:25:04

Arsene Wenger and Arsenal winless

away from home against any of the

0:25:040:25:09

current top five since January 2015.

15 games to go. Into Lamela. Now

0:25:090:25:19

Eriksen.

0:25:190:25:20

Trippier! Another Cech save. Denied

Kieran Trippier. His only second

0:25:220:25:34

ever Tottenham goal. Kane's cross,

too strong for Lamela. They are all

0:25:340:25:41

wondering how they aren't further in

front.

0:25:410:25:47

front. Four minutes of stoppage

time. Here's Bellerin. Here's

0:25:490:25:53

Lacazette.

0:25:530:25:58

Lacazette. Golden chance for a

smash-and-grab. Well, the Frenchman

0:25:580:26:02

has only got one goal in his last 12

games and his confidence levels

0:26:020:26:07

weren't high here.

0:26:070:26:14

weren't high here. Very good voice.

They have been dominant in this

0:26:140:26:16

second-half.

0:26:160:26:21

second-half. Lacazette has got away.

Goodness me, another big chance to

0:26:230:26:29

equalise for the substitute. Again,

he couldn't take it. Well, he was

0:26:290:26:34

closer than last time. That means

nothing for Arsenal. Two late

0:26:340:26:41

chances for Lacazette, and Wenger's

reaction totally understandable.

0:26:410:26:48

This needs to go forward from

Arsenal, and forward it goes from

0:26:480:26:53

Mustafi. Sanches, away. Tottenham

bodies back. Oh, it's a foul. A

0:26:530:27:00

free-kick on Welbeck. It will be the

last action of the game. It's a

0:27:000:27:04

yellow card as well. It's Dier shown

the yellow card for dissent.

0:27:040:27:12

Tottenham supporters watch on

nervously. The last kick of the game

0:27:120:27:17

will be Ozil's free-kick. It went

straight at the wall and the North

0:27:170:27:21

London Derby honours are

Tottenham's. Mauricio Pochettino's

0:27:210:27:27

team go seven points clear of their

arch-rivals. Once again, Harry Kane

0:27:270:27:34

is the King of North London. It's

all getting a little unsavoury at

0:27:340:27:38

the end as well as temperatures rise

in the rain at Wembley. Huge

0:27:380:27:44

disappointment and frustration for

Arsenal. Who until late on didn't

0:27:440:27:48

really give Tottenham a game. It has

finished Spurs

0:27:480:27:53

really give Tottenham a game. It has

finished Spurs 1, Arsenal 0.

We play

0:27:530:27:56

fantastic football. We create a lot

of chances. I think the team 1-0 if

0:27:560:28:03

not two or three. We analyse the 90

minutes the team deserve the Once we

0:28:030:28:10

had victory.

-- once they scored we

couldn't find enough assurance in

0:28:100:28:17

our game we were insecure too much

in the build-up. In the second-half

0:28:170:28:21

at the end they were tired and not

pressing as much. We were creating

0:28:210:28:26

more spaces and we had chances. It

was frustrating because you can see

0:28:260:28:30

you could have gone home with a

point or even three points. I think

0:28:300:28:35

especially in the first half we

weren't the standard required. It's

0:28:350:28:38

something to look at and work hard

for the next game.

A gap to make up

0:28:380:28:42

now. Are you confident you can do

it?

Confident or not we have to

0:28:420:28:47

fight to try to do it, you know. It

makes it mathmatically more

0:28:470:28:51

difficult. This is a game we

couldn't afford to lose today. But

0:28:510:28:55

you have to fight.

Match winner no

surprise is Harry Kane. Seven in

0:28:550:29:00

seven in these North London derbies?

If he gets his chances he will

0:29:000:29:03

score. He's done that again. He

seems to enjoy scoring against

0:29:030:29:07

Arsenal, which is a bonus. Maybe he

should have scored a few more as

0:29:070:29:10

well.

Yes, Harry Kane the difference

once again, Danny. Described by

0:29:100:29:15

Mauricio Pochettino after the game

as the "present and the future."

0:29:150:29:19

Tottenham fans will hope so.

We

eulogised about Aguero, the same

0:29:190:29:24

applies to this man. He's fantastic.

He's a big gameplayer. His all

0:29:240:29:30

around

0:29:300:29:30

He's a big gameplayer. His all

around game is phenomenal in the

0:29:300:29:31

first half he was the one who was

opening Arsenal up. It didn't happen

0:29:310:29:34

very often. Arsenal were

well-organised today. They had a

0:29:340:29:38

gameplan. Look at his strength. He's

good with his left foot, it was

0:29:380:29:43

evident here, as you can see. He had

the bit between his teeth. So up for

0:29:430:29:48

the game. As you should be of

course, the North London Derby. With

0:29:480:29:56

his quality. Look at this for a

pass. Unbelievable. He has the lot.

0:29:560:30:01

Physically so fit and strong. The

only surprise with this one is that

0:30:010:30:04

it didn't go in. He was the

difference. Match winner, but the

0:30:040:30:08

difference generally. Look how well

he strikes this, the confidence.

0:30:080:30:11

Here's the goal. I've never scored

one like this. I think I'll leave it

0:30:110:30:16

to Dion.

0:30:160:30:21

Arsenal are OK there but the reason

why Harry Kane scorers is his

0:30:210:30:26

determination, you can see both the

numbers on the backs of the centre

0:30:260:30:30

halves. You cannot see that. They

are in good positions but they got

0:30:300:30:36

it wrong. Harry Kane is in the form

of his life. He continues to do it

0:30:360:30:43

every week. He is the best there is.

You have looked at the same

0:30:430:30:50

every week. He is the best there is.

You have looked at the same goal

0:30:500:30:51

from a tactical perspective.

Firstly, they set up with three

0:30:510:30:54

midfielders in the middle of the

pitch and they gave Tottenham

0:30:540:30:59

respect and they played 4-3 - three

and they stopped at them, they were

0:30:590:31:04

the better team but in wide areas,

they gave up possession a little bit

0:31:040:31:09

at times because they stopped

Tottenham getting into the pockets.

0:31:090:31:14

You will see it here. It was a good

tactical decision. Make a terrier

0:31:140:31:23

there. There are in a good position.

Ozil should go out, and when the

0:31:230:31:30

ball does eventually come out to

Davies, they are still OK, Xhaka

0:31:300:31:36

cannot quite get across, maybe

0:31:360:31:39

Davies, they are still OK, Xhaka

cannot quite get across, maybe could

0:31:390:31:39

be a bit quicker, but Arsenal are in

a bad position. They have struggled

0:31:390:31:46

away from home. Do you

0:31:460:31:58

blame Koscielny? They showed decent

determination but Tottenham deserved

0:32:010:32:04

it. They have the spirit and

possession. Despite Tottenham's

0:32:040:32:10

dominance, Arsenal could have got

something at the end, Lacazette had

0:32:100:32:16

a chance.

He was positive with his

substitutions, Lacazette and Iwobi

0:32:160:32:22

came on. You can see Lacazette going

around the back. He went with the

0:32:220:32:27

side foot. You saw the way Harry

Kane did it, but Lacazette has no

0:32:270:32:33

confidence otherwise he's would have

gone with his laces. I am thinking,

0:32:330:32:38

slide it under the keeper. He just

gets it all wrong. That is a

0:32:380:32:44

confidence thing, if he has more

games, that is a gold. At the

0:32:440:32:48

moment, despair for the manager.

It

certainly was.

0:32:480:32:53

Two games down, four

more on their way.

0:32:530:33:01

A good header, but no. Surely it is

Arnautovic? Not a bad effort. Here

0:33:010:33:13

is the shot.

0:33:130:33:16

Sam Allardyce described Everton's

5-1 defeat to Arsenal

0:33:160:33:18

as "pathetic and unacceptable",

so an improved performance

0:33:180:33:20

against a Crystal Palace side

fighting relegation was a must.

0:33:200:33:23

Commentary at Goodison

Park from John Motson.

0:33:230:33:25

JOHN MOTSON:

0:33:250:33:30

He really was the man in the middle

with all that shenanigans against

0:33:300:33:35

Liverpool but John Morris is back on

Merseyside today alone with his

0:33:350:33:39

assistant Eddie Smart who lived up

to his name and between them they

0:33:390:33:43

got the decisions right. Everton got

it horribly wrong at the Emirates

0:33:430:33:48

and Sam Allardyce described the

performance as pathetic. Coleman, it

0:33:480:33:54

Davies, Rooney and Sigurdsson are

back. The Palace injury list is in

0:33:540:34:02

double figures but Ward is back and

Soerloth makes his debut upfront. A

0:34:020:34:12

really squally afternoon on

Merseyside. There is Rooney. He has

0:34:120:34:18

been here twice. Two spells.

Sigurdsson. Gylfi Sigurdsson! Just

0:34:180:34:26

skipped his way into a shooting

position. It curled away from the

0:34:260:34:30

far post. Benteke. Car by two

Townsend.

0:34:300:34:42

Townsend. -- Cabaye. He is away.

Soerloth for Crystal Palace. It went

0:34:470:34:55

over to Benteke in the end.

0:34:550:35:01

over to Benteke in the end. It is

Milivojevic who shoots. That was a

0:35:020:35:05

promising break by Palace. Roy

Hodgson up against a fellow former

0:35:050:35:12

England manager today although Roy

was in the job rather longer than

0:35:120:35:15

Sam Allardyce. Walcott. Sigurdsson

coming in at the far post, Ward did

0:35:150:35:21

well. This is an Everton corner.

Gueye. Gueye has the shot. It is

0:35:210:35:39

saved by Hennessy. Got a good hand

to it, the goalkeeper. Probably the

0:35:390:35:44

best effort Everton have had so far.

The atmosphere has been a little

0:35:440:35:50

flat inside Goodison Park, it needs

something to read of the matchup.

0:35:500:35:55

The cross by Sara and away by

Martina. It comes off Pickford, he

0:35:550:36:05

has to get his body behind it to

make sure it is a corner. Cabaye

0:36:050:36:10

with the shot for Palace. Soerloth

could not quite reach it, Townsend.

0:36:100:36:19

Taken off his toll, Tomkins, and

Pickford has a foul. Benteke. One of

0:36:190:36:27

those that you could say it was our

site, you could say was a foul on

0:36:270:36:31

the goalkeeper but it does not count

for Crystal Palace. -- you could say

0:36:310:36:37

it was offside. Benteke is on his

own, here comes Townsend to help.

0:36:370:36:44

Soerloth again, showing some nice

touches, Benteke. That is where this

0:36:440:36:52

season he has not been the force he

was. This was probably Crystal

0:36:520:36:58

Palace but's best opening of the

half. The match has been rather like

0:36:580:37:02

the weather, somewhat damp. If one

team or the other can just lift

0:37:020:37:09

their game a little bit, there could

be extra points to be had here. Good

0:37:090:37:15

depth on the kick from Pickford.

Sigurdsson! And Everton take the

0:37:150:37:23

lead. In the first minute of the

second half. It was not a

0:37:230:37:32

particularly good header by Tomkins.

Sigurdsson just drove that

0:37:320:37:38

accurately in the corner, a slight

deflection may be to help him and

0:37:380:37:42

that puts a different complexion on

the game completely. -- may be to

0:37:420:37:47

help them. Niasse. Here is Kenny.

Sigurdsson that keeps it in play. --

0:37:470:38:01

Sigurdsson keeps it in play. He

finds that Davies. A good chance and

0:38:010:38:10

that is the second goal and it is

Niasse. Niasse making it 2-0 to

0:38:100:38:17

Everton and they have scored twice

in the first six minutes of the

0:38:170:38:22

second half and Niasse planted that

header beautifully. Past Hennessy,

0:38:220:38:28

good cross by Martina which set up

Niasse and once again, their

0:38:280:38:33

second-half performance is in a

different class to what went before.

0:38:330:38:40

Palace have not got a lot to turn to

in the way of substitutes today,

0:38:400:38:44

there is not really a striker in

there. This is Cabaye, Benteke is

0:38:440:38:50

pulling away. Cabaye gets it back

from Soerloth. Good header, but no.

0:38:500:39:01

Again for him, agonisingly wide. It

just will not go at the moment for

0:39:010:39:05

Benteke. Crossfield ball by Cabaye

to Van Aanholt. Soerloth. He is

0:39:050:39:17

going to be a bit of a handful, I

think, at the new signing. Here is

0:39:170:39:25

Rooney. Williams. Walcott.

0:39:250:39:35

Rooney. Williams. Walcott. It did

not run for a Davies but it might

0:39:350:39:38

for Kenny and it might for a Niasse.

Sigurdsson. Davies! 3-0. Everton are

0:39:380:39:49

pushing the game beyond Crystal

Palace's recall. Walcott initially.

0:39:490:39:54

That did not do Palace any favours,

Kenny got the ball back in.

0:39:540:40:00

Sigurdsson retrieved and Tom Davies

made no mistake with his right foot,

0:40:000:40:08

3-0. Palace with this devastating

list of injuries, you feel that they

0:40:080:40:13

might just have an uphill struggle

in the next few weeks. Free to

0:40:130:40:20

Crystal Palace.

0:40:200:40:25

Crystal Palace. -- free kick to

Crystal Palace. Here he is again.

0:40:250:40:31

Bringing that save from Pickford.

Snapshot by Van Aanholt. Corner to

0:40:310:40:36

Palace. They were all up there.

Everton were rocking from the moment

0:40:360:40:50

that corner came in, two or three

touches and it looks as though

0:40:500:40:54

Ashley Williams was the player whose

hand was up. It is a penalty to

0:40:540:41:00

Crystal Palace and usually

Milivojevic puts these away. He does

0:41:000:41:05

but Pickford made a great effort to

save it. It was emphatic but the

0:41:050:41:10

goalkeeper went the right way. And

got hands to it, I think. 3-1.

0:41:100:41:16

goalkeeper went the right way. And

got hands to it, I think. 3-1.

Heal

0:41:160:41:20

got the got the ball from a long

ball. They managed to go 1-0 up and

0:41:200:41:26

then we controlled the game after

that, stop the goal to concede, I

0:41:260:41:31

think. I think at half-time we said

we wanted to win this game

0:41:310:41:34

especially at home.

It is unusual to

have quite so many players out and

0:41:340:41:39

not just any players, you have

players who are an integral part of

0:41:390:41:44

our first team.

We feel we have not

been blessed with any good fortune

0:41:440:41:48

there but having said that, I think

that the players that played

0:41:480:41:57

that the players that played today,

the 11 that started the game, I

0:41:570:41:59

thought they gave a good account of

themselves and we did not lose the

0:41:590:42:02

game because we were lacking any of

those other players, we lost it

0:42:020:42:04

because the mistakes we made were

punished by Everton.

The last few

0:42:040:42:07

games, the second half, we had a

better half, but today, the first

0:42:070:42:11

five minutes, we received some more

goals but after that it was hard to

0:42:110:42:15

come back into the game but we had

one good chance from Christian. If

0:42:150:42:23

he had scored to have one, maybe we

could have changed the game but it

0:42:230:42:27

was hard to come back.

0:42:270:42:28

Afterwards I spoke to the Everton

manager, Sam Allardyce.

0:42:280:42:35

A comfortable victory. Very

satisfying I would imagine after the

0:42:350:42:39

disappointing -- disappointment of

the performance last week.

It is. We

0:42:390:42:44

have to look at our own record and

say, that is were the mainstay of

0:42:440:42:49

Pharisees and lies. In the eight

games at home, 17 points we have

0:42:490:42:54

picked up and we have only conceded

four goals and the last two goals we

0:42:540:43:00

conceded a penalty. We are into

attaining the fans are getting

0:43:000:43:04

results at Goodison Park, but it is

just that unfortunate waveform that

0:43:040:43:08

is causing us the problem.

Why do

you think you're playing so

0:43:080:43:13

differently away from home?

This has

always been a strong place to play,

0:43:130:43:19

they are close to the players, they

get behind them, I think away from

0:43:190:43:24

home it is quite a long-standing

problem, because for over a year or

0:43:240:43:29

so, when we won at Newcastle that

was a long time since we had won,

0:43:290:43:34

even the season before, away from

home. For now, we can relax and

0:43:340:43:40

enjoy ourselves.

Rooney and

Sigurdsson came into the starting

0:43:400:43:44

line-up, they have been in and out

and they seem to make a difference,

0:43:440:43:49

is there any real reason why you

left them out in recent weeks?

0:43:490:43:56

Because of the fatigue level. We

played against Leicester on

0:43:560:44:02

Wednesday night, we had to play

Saturday against Arsenal away.

0:44:020:44:06

Sometimes, when you have a series

like that, you get a little bit of

0:44:060:44:12

stick. We put everybody right today

and when it happens, you have to get

0:44:120:44:17

over it and learn from it and just

go onto the next game and make sure

0:44:170:44:21

you win and we have done that and on

that very comfortably. The Everton

0:44:210:44:26

fans will be happy when they wake up

tomorrow morning and see where we

0:44:260:44:30

have pushed on in the league now,

nearly save, so we can get the

0:44:300:44:34

planning done for next season. We

cannot quite get that yet but maybe

0:44:340:44:39

we can start pencilling one or two

things in.

We can see the home and

0:44:390:44:44

away record that he alluded to. I

think he counted the game when he

0:44:440:44:50

was not quite in charge. There is a

real difference and perhaps the

0:44:500:44:54

difference today was Gylfi

Sigurdsson, he was excellent.

0:44:540:45:03

Sigurdsson, he was excellent.

He

makes things happen in the final

0:45:030:45:05

third. He has two footed, he can

score a goal. He was left out last

0:45:050:45:13

week.

0:45:130:45:18

week. The fatigue thing, it is not

like they are in the Champions

0:45:180:45:20

League. He was really good.

0:45:200:45:24

He got fortune for his goal. Great

anticipation of where the ball was

0:45:380:45:42

going to land. A bit of deflection

there. That settled everyone down.

0:45:420:45:47

He grew in confidence as the game

went on. Although they were awful

0:45:470:45:50

last week, it was a much better

performance. Sam is right about

0:45:500:45:54

playing at Goodison. It's an intense

atmosphere. The supporters expect to

0:45:540:45:59

put yourself about and give your

all. You can't not. Lucky header

0:45:590:46:03

there.

Are

Sigurdsson involved in

it, again. Look at the anticipation.

0:46:030:46:09

He's good around the box. He's calm.

I like him.

If you work that hard

0:46:090:46:15

and you are that good, you are going

to give performances that.

He just

0:46:150:46:21

kept giving today.

Oh, dear.

Crystal

Palace, Roy said about the fact they

0:46:210:46:26

have so many placers missing.

Yes.

Zaha in particular is a big miss.

0:46:260:46:31

Yes yes. Another eight or nine

important players missing. Zaha is

0:46:310:46:36

the man, as you can see by the

stats. He makes it them tick. They

0:46:360:46:41

have nobody to look to without him.

The good news is they have three

0:46:410:46:46

home gapes their next four. The bad

news is they are playing against

0:46:460:46:49

Tottenham, Manchester United and

Liverpool.

Ah, not easy.

Difficult.

0:46:490:46:55

Next to the London Stadium,

as Watford travelled to West Ham

0:46:550:46:58

buoyant following an unforgettable

Monday night.

0:46:580:47:06

Watching this one, Steve Wilson.

0:47:340:47:36

STEVE WILSON:

0:47:360:47:41

Marko Arnautovic returns for West

Ham he scored five in five starts

0:47:420:47:46

before his hamstring injury. New

arriving is on the bench having not

0:47:460:47:52

played since November and Hyslop

controversial exit from Marseille.

0:47:520:47:59

Watford became the first visiting

team to win a Premier League game

0:48:020:48:06

here.

0:48:060:48:13

here. Cold, windy, wet day in

Stratford.

0:48:130:48:23

Stratford. Nice Watford. Doucoure.

Capoue.

0:48:230:48:30

Capoue. Off the head of Ogbonna for

the corner. Lot of patients about

0:48:330:48:38

how they worked this, Watford. They

have' got a corner. Driven in by

0:48:380:48:42

Holebas. Good save by Adrian to deny

Mariappa. It's a really well crafted

0:48:420:48:49

corner kick here from Watford. Both

sides wearing black armbands today

0:48:490:48:58

in memory of Keble who played for

West Ham. Nicely worked, Arnautovic.

0:48:580:49:10

Oh, great run, Marko Arnautovic.

Still going. Come back to

0:49:100:49:14

Arnautovic. Save from Karnezis to

deny Mario they feel they should be

0:49:140:49:22

getting a penalty. All they are

getting is a corner. Look at this

0:49:220:49:27

from Arnautovic. Brilliant.

Fantastic feet for a big fella. Was

0:49:270:49:31

there a foul there on Arnautovic by

Prodl?

0:49:310:49:41

Prodl? Joao Mario. Knocked off it by

Holebas. That's a free-kick. Joao

0:49:410:49:49

Mario goes down holding his face.

The elbow came in from Holebas into

0:49:490:49:54

kind of his neck. It's going to be

Joao Mario's ball in. The offside

0:49:540:50:01

flag is up. It's not going to

countried. -- count. The flag was up

0:50:010:50:14

from Andy Garrett. That is so tight.

His left shoulder might just be

0:50:140:50:18

behind the line of the last Watford

defender.

0:50:180:50:27

defender. West Ham free-kick.

Clearly alfree-kick. Into the last

0:50:270:50:36

10 minutes of what has been quite an

eventful first half, though no goals

0:50:360:50:42

yet. Collins. Arnautovic. Straight

at the goalkeeper. Anywhere else and

0:50:420:50:49

it would have been 1-0 to West Ham.

He can't believe he didn't put it

0:50:490:50:55

away, Marko Arnautovic. He's furious

with himself. So West Ham denied by

0:50:550:51:02

the Karnezis save. Coming again down

that left hand side with Antonio.

0:51:020:51:06

It's a good run this. Hernandez -

1-0! This time it counts. Javier

0:51:060:51:19

Hernandez heads West Ham in front.

Michail Antonio, down the left flank

0:51:190:51:26

again. It's been a feature of West

Ham's play in this first half. It's

0:51:260:51:34

a free header, leaving Hernandez to

simply steer the ball into the net.

0:51:340:51:44

Here's Arnautovic. He's been really

the game's best player, Marko

0:51:440:51:50

Arnautovic. Another super run. It's

going to be a corner.

0:51:500:51:58

going to be a corner. A little smile

from Marko Arnautovic.

0:51:580:52:08

Joao Mario with the West Ham corner.

Looking dangerous. Very dangerous.

0:52:080:52:17

Caused a minor outbreak of panic

here. Still delicately poised this

0:52:170:52:23

game.

0:52:230:52:27

Oh, that is a clumsy challenge. No

cards for Kouyate but there might

0:52:330:52:48

have been. Good save by Adrian. He

read it well. It wasn't near enough

0:52:480:52:53

to the right hand upright to really

trouble Adrian.

0:52:530:53:00

trouble Adrian. Here's the chance.

Hernandez with the run through on

0:53:010:53:04

goal. Arnautovic square. Arnautovic

surely - no. How is it not 2-0. The

0:53:040:53:15

clearance which fell to Javier

Hernandez definitely onside.

0:53:150:53:18

Mariappa was playing him on. So

nearly fell to Arnautovic, but not

0:53:180:53:22

quite. Hernandez rolling it in.

Pushing it out. Noble was swamped by

0:53:220:53:30

yellow shirts. You can't take your

eyes off this now. Arnautovic. A

0:53:300:53:37

great run. The substitute has been

on the pitch for a matter of a

0:53:370:53:42

smattering of seconds, made a

brilliant run, Byram, really well

0:53:420:53:49

tracked by Holebas and nearly found

by Arnautovic. Collins in there

0:53:490:53:55

hoping to win an attacking header.

Challenge from the substitute. It's

0:53:550:53:59

ricocheted. Arnautovic - 2-0. Well,

he couldn't miss that one.

0:53:590:54:15

he couldn't miss that one. It was a

risky challenge. Cresswell's cross

0:54:150:54:18

spilled by Karnezis. Then hit on to

Holebas. It fell to Arnautovic, who

0:54:180:54:26

glee flee make it two.

0:54:260:54:27

Holebas. It fell to Arnautovic, who

glee flee make it two.

If you give

0:54:270:54:31

me when we took over in bot to the

tomorrow three we could get into the

0:54:310:54:35

top ten I would say you are kidding

on. Great credit to the players.

0:54:350:54:40

Done a brilliant job. They are at

it. Running around and making it

0:54:400:54:42

difficult for teams. We want to

continue improving what we've got.

0:54:420:54:48

Hopefully we can keep doing that.

We

had more possession, but it's not to

0:54:480:54:55

have more possession, it's not the

same to dominate and have control of

0:54:550:54:58

the match. We tried, but because we

tried, but I think today it wasn't

0:54:580:55:06

our best match.

I want just to show

the critical people all the people

0:55:060:55:14

that don't like me, to show them

that I'm good and I want to give

0:55:140:55:18

everything for this club. That's why

I play football.

Why would anyone

0:55:180:55:22

not like you?

I don't know. I'm

surprised some people don't like me

0:55:220:55:26

because I think I've a good heart.

Everybody should like me.

Anyone who

0:55:260:55:32

doesn't like Marko Arnautovic?

I've

always liked him.

I like him. Do you

0:55:320:55:36

like him, Dion

I love him.

He needs

a

0:55:360:55:43

like him, Dion

I love him.

He needs

a hug. I've always liked him. When

0:55:430:55:46

he played in wide areas at Stoke he

spent too much energy tracking back.

0:55:460:55:53

Look at his close control. Unlicky

here. It's a penalty hef goeses

0:55:530:55:59

meantal at the decision. He has

great... Look, right foot there,

0:55:590:56:04

Dion.

In normal time I said no pen.

In the replay, definite pen.

He

0:56:040:56:11

gives them a presence. They have

lacked that. He can see a pass,

0:56:110:56:16

dribble and score a goal. Credit to

him for the time he has been out. He

0:56:160:56:19

looks sharp and fit today. This is

what he's got. He's got that ability

0:56:190:56:23

to go past people. He scares

defenders. He was the best player...

0:56:230:56:27

They look a different team when he's

playing.

You half want a player like

0:56:270:56:31

this not to be given a position.

Don't play him upfront. Let him do

0:56:310:56:37

what he wants to do. He will create

for the team. When he's working as

0:56:370:56:42

hard as this, creating so much for

West Ham. He's such an important

0:56:420:56:46

player. Look at this. It's such a

great touch. Gets ricocheted. First

0:56:460:56:51

touch great. In the right place at

the right time. Great all day. We

0:56:510:56:54

all love him.

We do.

Hernandez

deserves a mention. Did well in the

0:56:540:57:01

last couple of weeks.

West Ham fans

like him. Watford couldn't follow on

0:57:010:57:06

from their performance on Monday?

No. Deeney, Janmaat may be tired

0:57:060:57:13

after that performance against

Chelsea they played well. Went into

0:57:130:57:16

this game looking leggy. I think

West Ham capitalised on that.

OK.

0:57:160:57:21

Three crucial games

on Match of the Day 2.

0:57:210:57:27

COMMENTATOR:

Lascelles.

Manchester

United breakthrough.

Ward-Prowse to

0:57:270:57:32

strike, and he's there.

Brilliant,

brilliant, brilliant!

Mounie for

0:57:320:57:41

Huddersfield.

Cool finish from

Wilson.

Goal!

0:57:410:57:52

The Winter Olympics continues

across the BBC, head to the BBC

0:57:520:57:55

Sport website for all the details.

0:57:550:57:58

The Six Nations continues

on Sunday afternoon

0:57:580:58:00

with Scotland taking on France.

0:58:000:58:02

And the FA Cup returns next weekend.

0:58:020:58:04

We've two live games,

as Spurs travel to Rochdale

0:58:040:58:06

and a repeat of the 2013 final

as Wigan host Manchester City.

0:58:060:58:14

And in sad news, it was announced

that the former Celtic,

0:58:160:58:18

Manchester United and Sunderland

midfielder, Liam Miller,

0:58:180:58:20

has died at the age of just 36.

0:58:200:58:23

He was suffering with

pancreatic cancer.

0:58:230:58:30

Celtic Park fell silent

0:58:300:58:31

in his memory ahead of their game

with Partick Thistle.

0:58:310:58:34

Leeds and Sunderland wore black

armbands for their matches as well

0:58:340:58:39

Manchester United during their game

on Sunday.

0:58:390:58:47

It's now eight games without defeat

in all competitions for Swansea

0:58:470:58:50

under Carlos Carvalhal,

as the club continue their revival

0:58:500:58:52

and move gradually up the table.

0:58:520:58:53

They took on a Burnley side

without a win in nine.

0:58:530:58:56

Mark Scott watched this one.

0:58:560:58:58

MARK SCOTT:

0:58:580:59:05

Having named the same team for the

last three Premier League games,

0:59:050:59:12

Carvalhal's force into a change with

Carroll replacing Fer, who is out

0:59:120:59:15

for the rest of the season with a

ruptured Achilles. Ayew has to wait

0:59:150:59:21

for his first Swans appearance

alongside his brother Jordan help

0:59:210:59:26

begins on the bench. Burnley has one

change, Lowton comes in for the

0:59:260:59:31

injured Phil Bardsley. Cork makes

his first return to the Liberty

0:59:310:59:35

Stadium since joining the Clarp etc

in the summer. Burnley beat Swansea

0:59:350:59:41

when the sides met in November.

Swansea having won the first four

0:59:410:59:46

Premier League encounters between

them. Long. Send it long, Barnes and

0:59:460:59:57

Vokes, on the turn. Not a bad

effort. Drilled forwards by Long.

0:59:571:00:03

Lovely header into the path of Vokes

by Barnes. That is an excellent try

1:00:031:00:08

from Sam Vokes. Fabianski at full

stretch, he was worried.

1:00:081:00:13

Swansea have lost just one of their

ten games in league and cup under

1:00:171:00:22

Carvalhal. That sole defeat was

against Spurs. Mike van der Hoorn.

1:00:221:00:29

Really good pass. Olsson. Space here

for Ki Sung-Yeung. Clucas. Good

1:00:291:00:36

turn. They barely had sight of goal

so far, Swansea. Clucas created the

1:00:361:00:43

room well.

1:00:431:00:49

So far that match has not been much

better than the rotten weather

1:00:551:00:58

today. -- so far at the match.

Barnes, nearly into Vokes. Van de

1:00:581:01:10

Horn, risky, but he got away with

it. The clearance by van de Horn. It

1:01:101:01:21

is going to be picked up by Carroll,

dispossessed by court, Ashley

1:01:211:01:25

Barnes! He scored in their 2-0 win

against Swansea in November, he has

1:01:251:01:36

had the first chance of the second

half this afternoon. Fabianski had

1:01:361:01:43

it covered had it been on target.

Fabianski finding van de Horn. Vokes

1:01:431:01:54

across. Van de Horn looking for a

Dyer, well met by Mee. Hendrick is

1:01:541:02:00

fouled by Carroll. Shelved Hendrick

in the back. -- shelved Hendrick.

1:02:001:02:14

Mee with the free kick. That is not

the best of clearances, tipped over

1:02:141:02:21

the top by Fabianski. Really good

effort by good Manson. Mee tossed it

1:02:211:02:28

into the penalty area, the header by

Hernandez dropped and it is a smart

1:02:281:02:34

stop by Fabianski as well. He does

not really need to sweeten up the

1:02:341:02:40

media given how well things have

gone since he took over but that is

1:02:401:02:43

what he did this week, handing out

home-made Portuguese paper sheet --

1:02:431:02:48

pastries at his press Conference.

Abraham, Ayew. Abraham!

1:02:481:03:03

Abraham, Ayew. Abraham! Carroll.

Good delivery. Abraham! Deflected

1:03:041:03:11

and gathered by Pope. Two chances in

quick succession for a Tammy Abraham

1:03:111:03:17

arm. Carroll with the whipped ball

in. It may have been Jordan Howe you

1:03:171:03:24

who got the touch. Lovely flight of

delivery -- it may have been Jordan

1:03:241:03:32

Ayew.

1:03:321:03:37

He wanted handball on the edge of

the area by Mee, and you can see

1:03:421:03:48

why. Lowton will take the throw.

Abraham.

1:03:481:03:57

Abraham. Trying to win the corner,

unable to do so, picked up by

1:03:571:04:01

Carroll, though. Naughton. Still a

chance here, trying to tee it up for

1:04:011:04:12

Ayew, Ki Sung-Yeung, it is in! Ki

Sung-Yeung with his first Swansea

1:04:121:04:17

goal since May, 2016. And it may

well have secured a precious three

1:04:171:04:25

points for them as well. Carroll

worked it well. Great run for

1:04:251:04:31

Naughton as well and then he teed it

up for a Ki Sung-Yeung Guta get away

1:04:311:04:37

from Jordan Ayew and blasted it away

from Pope. One touch to set it up.

1:04:371:04:45

And then low and true and into the

bottom corner. 1-0 to Swansea.

1:04:451:04:57

Naughton. Not quite.

1:04:571:05:05

Naughton. Not quite. Andre Ayew.

They have numbers forward, here is

1:05:061:05:11

Jordan Ayew. Further wide now. They

will be happy to keep it down by the

1:05:111:05:19

corner. He did better than that. He

kept it in. Chance to wrap it up but

1:05:191:05:25

Pope makes the block. Lovely piece

of escape ology hear from Jordan

1:05:251:05:32

Ayew, he saw no way through, got

past a pair of Burnley players, kept

1:05:321:05:38

it in as well, was not far away from

squeezing it beyond Pope as well. It

1:05:381:05:45

will be 14 points from seven Premier

League games for Carlos Carvalhal

1:05:451:05:51

since he took over, what a job he is

doing.

1:05:511:05:56

since he took over, what a job he is

doing.

Everyone loves him and the

1:05:561:06:00

way he has changed the team is

fantastic. Tactically we changed to

1:06:001:06:04

three at the back and it works very

well. Everyone knows what we have to

1:06:041:06:10

do on the pitch. That is why, as a

team, as an individual, everyone has

1:06:101:06:15

improved a lot.

It was a tight game,

nothing in it, the action was in

1:06:151:06:20

both boxes and they got the right

side of the margins. It was partly

1:06:201:06:25

our own doing, I don't think we were

as good as we have been. We still

1:06:251:06:30

created chances,.

We put Andre Ayew

and Tammy in that moment and also

1:06:301:06:39

Martin Olsson. We have three

attackers in the middle, we put all

1:06:391:06:46

the meat in the barbecue, all the

meat inside.

It has been a real

1:06:461:06:54

improvement under Carlos Carvalhal,

not just the football but the post

1:06:541:06:58

match analogies! Whatever he is

doing it is working.

He was

1:06:581:07:04

positive, he put everything he had

on,

1:07:041:07:06

positive, he put everything he had

on, off the bench, completely

1:07:061:07:08

positive. He went strong. Early on

they went from fullback to fullback.

1:07:081:07:16

Olsson pushing on Mawson. He pushes

his full-backs higher up, very

1:07:161:07:21

confident. He tries to play at the

back as well, it was not working, he

1:07:211:07:27

brings on Tammy Abraham. Playing

football through the middle, we will

1:07:271:07:31

change our game. All day, Burnley

went down the middle and Barnes and

1:07:311:07:36

Vokes were good but when Tammy

Abraham came on, he occupied that

1:07:361:07:41

two centre halves well, he moved

around the defence, the defence of

1:07:411:07:45

Burnley... One of the centre halves

is getting dragged down, it is Mee,

1:07:451:07:51

and then another player comes down,

he is dragging two players, how do

1:07:511:07:55

we deal with the strength of Tammy

Abraham? Bad clearance by Mee and

1:07:551:08:00

they start to play. Tammy is

pointing, four defenders from

1:08:001:08:07

Burnley out of position. That is

through the presence of Tammy

1:08:071:08:09

Abraham coming on. Ki gets a bit of

luck but look how many Burnley

1:08:091:08:15

players they are. They cannot do

anything about it, Tammy Abraham

1:08:151:08:19

clicks it on four Ki. He is

shattered. This one, he is a

1:08:191:08:27

goal-scorer, he wants to score a

goal but he should really pass to

1:08:271:08:31

Jordan Ayew. Great tactical play by

Carlos Carvalhal, he got it right.

1:08:311:08:40

Burnley are struggling, then now

without a win.

1:08:401:08:43

Stoke's defeat to Bournemouth last

weekend saw them drop

1:08:431:08:45

into the bottom three and they faced

a Brighton side who -

1:08:451:08:48

like half the Premier League -

were in one of the tightest

1:08:481:08:51

relegation battles we

have seen for a while.

1:08:511:08:53

Martin Fisher watched this one.

1:08:531:08:54

MARTIN FISHER:

1:08:541:08:59

Brighton start the day in 13th

place. Victory for Stoke would draw

1:08:591:09:04

them level on points. Peter Crouch

has an ankle infection. Diouf is the

1:09:041:09:13

lone striker. Darren Fletcher is fit

again. March is preferred. Glenn

1:09:131:09:23

Murray has scored in each of his

last three games including their

1:09:231:09:27

only away goal in their last seven

matches. You sounds Stoke have to

1:09:271:09:33

make the most of their home

advantage today and for the rest of

1:09:331:09:37

the season if there are ten years

stay in the Premier League is not to

1:09:371:09:40

come to an end.

1:09:401:09:48

come to an end. Suddenly an almighty

gap develops and the Colombian,

1:09:481:09:53

Izquierdo who scored that belter

against West Ham could not find the

1:09:531:09:57

top corner. Chance to cross. Lifted

high towards Choupo-Moting who is

1:09:571:10:10

arriving. First corner of the game

for them. Fletcher puts it in,

1:10:101:10:17

headed

1:10:171:10:23

headed away by Schelotto. A good

effort. A mixed bag so far for Paul

1:10:231:10:31

Lambert, a win, a draw and a defeat

and the need to win this sort of

1:10:311:10:36

game. Stephens. Gross. March, bit of

room for him to advance. Look at

1:10:361:10:47

this for Izquierdo. March,

Izquierdo, Stevens, lovely move, is

1:10:471:10:53

there a finish, Izquierdo,

magnificent gold. That is the wonder

1:10:531:10:59

strike against West Ham one week

ago, he has come close to surpassing

1:10:591:11:04

that finish. A lovely move and a

cool finish the Colombian. Izquierdo

1:11:041:11:13

picks it up and then looks for

support, the initial 12 with March,

1:11:131:11:19

the second web Stephens, Stoke City

defenders bamboozled as Izquierdo

1:11:191:11:24

slots it beyond Jack Butland. They

have been defensively strong for

1:11:241:11:32

most of the season, Brighton. You

would expect that from a newly

1:11:321:11:38

promoted side. Stephens. Gross. Time

to deliver the cross and it is just

1:11:381:11:45

headed over. He will be disappointed

he could not keep that ever down,

1:11:451:11:54

because you sense a second goal here

for Brighton and it might well be

1:11:541:11:58

game over. So much time for Pascal

Gross to measure the cross, he

1:11:581:12:02

should have put that away.

1:12:021:12:08

should have put that away. Shaqiri.

Line up the shot and lets it go and

1:12:091:12:12

finds the bottom corner. Shaqiri

comes up with the goods and Stoke

1:12:121:12:18

are level. It is a superb finish

from the Swiss. Steps inside and

1:12:181:12:30

Ryan could not get across in time to

keep it out. Stoke City right back

1:12:301:12:36

in the game now and the noise

returns to the Bet365 Stadium. Their

1:12:361:12:43

Pino.

1:12:431:12:48

Pino. Shaqiri has got away from

Stevens. Instead Schelotto and

1:12:481:12:54

Brighton will bring it away. Bobby

madly in a good position to see what

1:12:541:12:59

happened there. A little bit

theatrical, but there was a definite

1:12:591:13:04

touch from behind. Izquierdo.

Izquierdo has gone for the return.

1:13:041:13:17

Goes on. Surely not again? It was so

hot to handle. What a month

1:13:171:13:26

Izquierdo is having. Shawcross is

looking to make a menace of himself.

1:13:261:13:36

Adam, now for a Shaqiri. They go

back close, he goes down, penalty

1:13:361:13:41

given. The foul was by Dale

Stephens. Well spotted by the

1:13:411:13:46

referee and Stoke City have a

penalty with just over one minute to

1:13:461:13:50

go. That is what the referee saw.

Points to the spot and Stoke get the

1:13:501:14:01

penalty. He is clearly irritated

because he wants to take the penalty

1:14:011:14:05

but his team-mates have said no, it

is not yours, Charlie Adam is the

1:14:051:14:10

designated penalty taker. This is a

vital moment for Charlie Adam and

1:14:101:14:15

Stoke City. Matt Ryan, can he keep

it out. He can, but add on the

1:14:151:14:23

rebound could not finish. What a

save by Matt Ryan? And Charlie Adam

1:14:231:14:32

cannot believe how he did not put

home the rebound. It was a great

1:14:321:14:39

recovering tackle. What a tackle

that is by Lewis Dunk. Brilliant.

1:14:391:14:44

But the drama not yet over. Three

minutes of added time, Charlie Adam

1:14:441:14:48

with the corner. He nearly scored

direct from the corner. The effort

1:14:481:14:55

by Kurt Zouma blocked again. Another

corner.

1:14:551:15:05

They go again. Off the line this

time.

1:15:091:15:11

Just denied. Stoke on three separate

occasions, the penalty, the corner

1:15:191:15:28

and then the header.

1:15:281:15:35

Confirmation that the whole ball has

not crossed the line, it is very

1:15:391:15:43

close.

1:15:431:15:48

Penalties happen. I won't stand here

and blame anybody. That's what

1:15:571:16:01

happens. It won't be the last one he

misses in

1:16:011:16:05

happens. It won't be the last one he

misses in his career.

I thought we

1:16:051:16:07

had the better chances in the game

they threatened got in great areas.

1:16:071:16:11

In Shaqiri they have a quality

player that can get that type of

1:16:111:16:14

delivery in. It shows on the goal.

Jese having won it wanted to take

1:16:141:16:20

the penalty himself. I'm guessing

Charlie Adam was the designated

1:16:201:16:25

penalty taker.

The good thing is

everybody wants to win and score. If

1:16:251:16:30

they didn't have the argument over,

then it becomes a little bit

1:16:301:16:33

disappointing. The lads know they

have to win games. They know... That

1:16:331:16:36

was a big opportunity.

Confusion

over who would take the penalty. The

1:16:361:16:43

gaffer told me in no uncertain terms

it won't happen again. Difficult

1:16:431:16:46

when that happens. Professional

athletes it was childish, to be

1:16:461:16:50

honest.

It's a physical game where

players are going to be close to

1:16:501:16:54

each other and holding each other.

For me still, certainly not a

1:16:541:16:58

penalty.

A couple of terrific goals.

Extraordinary finale with the

1:16:581:17:04

nonsense around the penalty. What

was going on there?

It

1:17:041:17:07

nonsense around the penalty. What

was going on there?

It was such a

1:17:071:17:08

weak penalty as well.

In the first

place snoochl very soft pen. You can

1:17:081:17:14

see Charlie Adam runs over to the

ball. Gets the ball and Jese is not

1:17:141:17:18

happy. Gets the penalty. He wants

it. This makes Stoke look a little

1:17:181:17:23

bit silly. If you run over and take

the penalty. You have to score.

1:17:231:17:27

Yeah. It doesn't It doesn't help

help.

.

That might have been another

1:17:271:17:32

penalty.

I think it was.

This tackle

here. He doesn't get the ball. Takes

1:17:321:17:38

Charlie Adam down. It hits his hand.

If you watch it slowly. He misses

1:17:381:17:42

the ball. It hits his hand. It could

have been another pen. If you are

1:17:421:17:46

confident to get the ball out of the

crowd you have to score. If you take

1:17:461:17:49

charge you have to score.

We are out

of time. Dion thanks very much,

1:17:491:17:53

Danny as always. That is all we have

time for. Let us see the Premier

1:17:531:17:56

League table before we leave.

Manchester City have increased their

1:17:561:18:00

advantage at the top to 16 points.

Tottenham are up to third with

1:18:001:18:04

Farsal now five points adrift of the

top four. Manchester United,

1:18:041:18:08

Liverpool and Chelsea are all yet to

play. Stoke stay in bottom three,

1:18:081:18:12

level on points with Newcastle.

Swansea' climb to 15, two points

1:18:121:18:16

clear of trouble. Let us see what

the Sunday papers have to say. The

1:18:161:18:22

Times report that Antonio Conte

believes the club will be "stupid"

1:18:221:18:27

to sack them when they are in the

hunt of trophies. The Mail on

1:18:271:18:38

Sunday, they focus onfallal's fading

top four hopes.

1:18:381:18:41

So Manchester City don't play again

in the league until March.

1:18:411:18:44

Perhaps if they left it until May,

we might have a title race.

1:18:441:18:47

Goodbye.
