FULL TIME: Liverpool 2-0 Burnley. Thanks for joining us.
Burnley sub: Jutkiewicz comes on for Ings. Little time to chance things though…
Liverpool sub: Lambert on for Sterling.
Droba is now booked for timewasting, stopping West Ham take a free kick. A hard fought and deserved win for Chelsea, but they really had to work for that. They'll be enjoying a nice lie in tomorrow, I hope. For West Ham, a big improvement over their receent efforts.
F-T! Manchester City 2-0 Leicester City. It wasn't easy but the champions have their win. David Silva's goal just before half-time was the key but Leicester will feel aggrieved about two penalty decisions, one which was debatable and one which should have been but only a freekick was given for a foul by Fernando on Kramaric.
What a save from Lloris! The Frenchman springs across goal to deny Williams an unlikely late equaliser. And that's it, Spurs have held on for a win that takes them to within six points of the top four with a game in hand.
Great pace from Can to get back goal side of Mee who brings him down and goes into the book.
Remy on for Hazard.
Liverpool sub: Johnson on for Sturridge.
Hazard is through on goal, takes a touch, slides it right for Willian. The keeper is stranded, and his low shot is bocked on the line by Cresswell.
QPR 1-2 ARSENAL
FT: Newcastle 0 Manchester United 1. Another average United performance, but a vital win nonetheless. With all their top four rivals winning, it was imperative that they picked up three points, but after wasting several chances, a fortunate Ashley Young goal snatches victory. Huge result.
Drogba is on for Costa.
Spurs have three minutes to hold on.
Final Arsenal sub: Ozil comes off and Danny Welbeck replaces him. Ozil is in no hurry to leave the pitch.
GOAL!! SIGURDSSON PULLS ONE BACK!!! Montero gets to the byline before lifting a ball to the back post where Sigurdsson side-foots home.
What a save from De Gea! Once again the Spaniard comes to United's rescue, this time denying Cisse at the last. Four added minutes.
Incrediible drama. Tireless work from captain Rooney. He ever gave up, forced the error, but Krul has to do better, passed it straight to Young. Not an easy finish, but he remained composed.
GOAL! Manchester City 2-0 Leicester City. That's the game for the home side as James Milner supplies the finish that neither Sergio Aguero or Wilfried Bony could, sidefooting Jesus Navas' cross from the right wing into the net in style.
GOAL! Newcastle 0 Manchester United 1. The scrappiest of goals gifts United a massive three points! Krul made a mess of a clearance, and Young was on hand to side foot home to probably snatch a vital win
Nene is on for Kouyate.
Rojo is brought off, with Michael Carrick making his return to the side. No Radamel Falcao?
Arsenal sub: Aaron Ramsey on for Rosicky. The Welshman returns from injury.
Liverpool sub: Toure on for Moreno.
Soldado flashes a header from a Walker cross just past the post. Fabianski was beaten.
Aguero looks very downbeat as he's replaced by Edin Dzeko.
Valencia is cautioned for a late challenge on sub Gouffran. Right call from the referee.
GOAL! AUSTIN PULLS ONE BACK - QPR 1-2 ARSENAL: It's that man Austin with a late goal for QPR. He pivots and hits a low strike into the bottom corner past Ospina. Nervy remaining 10 minutes for Arsenal now.
Ben Davies comes on to face his former club as Rose is taken off.
Fellaini is replaced by Mata. Again, he does not look happy. Yoan Gouffran is on for the hosts in place of Sammy Ameobi.
Cynical foul from Yun, who takes out Rosicky as Arsenal are trying to counter.
Williams' blushes spared by the offside flag as he loses the ball to Chadli on the edge of the area but the winger passes to Kane who is returning from an offside position. The striker is then withdrawn for Roberto Soldado.
Burnley sub: Barnes off for Vokes.
The home side make their second change, with Silva replaced by Lampard.
Monk makes a change as Jefferson Montero comes on for Shelvey. He has just over 17 minutes to make a difference.
Mahrez is replaced by Ulloa as Leicester decide it's time to attack.
Oscar swapped for Willian.
Rooney gets up so well above Gutierrez, but his downward header is well saved by Krul. Got down very quickly to keep it out.
Final QPR sub: Mauricio Isla comes on for Junior Hoilett.
First substitution for Manchester City with Wilfried Bony being taken off for James Milner. No first goal for the Ivorian.
GOAL! SANCHEZ MAKES IT 2-0 ARSENAL! Gibbs lays it off to the Chilean, who dinks inside the box and shoots past two defenders into the bottom corner past a helpless Rob Green.
Scoring ends up being Townsend's final involvement as he's replaced by Moussa Dembele.
CHANCE! How is this still 0-0? Herrera dithers and is dispossessed. Perez plays in Cisse, but the Senegalese hitman drags his shot wide. Should have done better.
Dier booked as he tugs Oliveira back to give away a free kick on the edge of Spurs' area. Sigurdsson steps up and hits the top of the wall.
Same laws for everyone! Gutierrez is booke already!

GOAL Liverpool! It's a terrific ball in from Henderson and Sturridge heads home past Heaton.
GOAL!! TOWNSEND SCORES EXCELLENT THIRD!! Lloris is called into action to deny Fernandez from a Swansea corner, but Spurs break and as Oliver waves play on following a Routledge foul, Townsend drives into the box, before checking onto his right foot and finding the far corner.
What a moment! Jonas Gutierrez is coming on. This is his first appearance since recovering from testicular cancer. He replaces Taylor. What an ovation. Roof is coming off! Very emotional scenes.
Downing advances on goal, passes through for Sakho to his left, and his low shot is blocked by Courtois.
We have our first booking of the game, with Rojo earning his seventh booking of the campaign.
Hazard chips in a cross for Ramires at the back post, unmarked, and he heads his effort straight against Adrian.
Di Maria is replaced again! Januzaj comes on in his place. The Argentine does not look happy, and is muttering something under his breath. Ayoze Perez on for Riviere for the hosts.
We’re back underway here at Anfield. Liverpool lead through another Jordan Henderson cracker on his 200th PL start. No changes for either side.
Adrian claims Oscar's cross. West Ham break, and Cahill clears in the box to stop the ballreaching Sakho. Raires then steams up the pitch with Hazard and Costa. He cuts onto his left and sends his shot against the post.
Two substitutions for Leicester CIty, with Paul Konchesky and Andrej Kramaric coming off for James Vardy and David Nugest.
Rooney has the ball in the net, but the linesman's flag rules it out. Was very, very marginal. Could have gone either way.
Sakho and Valencia go close again, with Courtois pulling off a fine save, getting a stop to prevent Nolan tapping in.
GOAL!! MASON GIVES SPURS THE LEAD!!! Eriksen drives across the Swansea box and when he loses control of the ball Mason takes over and smashes past Fabianski.
DOUBLE SAVE! How has Krul kept the scores level!?! Fellaini is onside, brings the ball down, lashes the ball at goal, but Krul somehow gets a hand to it to keep hit out, and then has the energy to get up quickly to thwart Young on the rebound. Stunning from a 'keeper Van Gaal knows all too well.
Kouyate shoots into the path of Sakho, who spins in the box and slams a shot just wide of the top corner.
We're back under way at White Hart Lane. Shelvey leads a Swansea counter, and ends up forcing Lloris into a good stop from 20 yards.
SAVE! Save of the match from David de Gea. Riviere looks destined to score at the back post, but his toe-poke from close range is clawed away by De Gea.
EFFORT! Great strike from Rojo from distance. Cuts across the ball to give it swirve, but he gets just a tad too much lift on it, and it goes over.
We go again.
Back to Loftus Road for the 2nd half. Giroud kicks off to Ozil.
United kick us off in the second half. All the talk during the interval was whether Papiss Cisse spat at Jonny Evans. Replays did not look good. Hopefull some goals this half.
HALF TIME: Liverpool 1-0 Burnley
Chance Sturridge! He’s put through on goal by Coutinho but Heaton reads it perfectly and saves his side footed finish with his legs.
Hazard is booked for tripping Nolan in midfield to stop an attack, and that's half time.
The first half ends with Spurs playing the ball around midfield. The hosts went in front thanks to Chadli's brilliant early opener but Swansea rallied after losing Gomis to a worrying injury and levelled through an impressive finish from Ki. Can either side find a winner in the second half? Find out right here in 15 minutes.
HT: Newcastle 0 Manchester United 0. The visitors have had their chances to take the lead, but profligacy in front of goal has again been their downfall. Riviere has looked lively, while the hosts were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty for a foul on the Frenchman. Cisse and Evans could be in trouble, with replays showing the spat between the pair was literally just that.
GOAL! Manchester City 1-0 Leicester CIty. David Silva ends a frustrating half in the best possible way for the home side, tapping into an empty net from two yards out. It was Kolarov who create the chance, getting clear on the left and cutting it across to Bony but after his shot was blocked by Huth, Silva was on-hand to tap-in at the second attempt.
QPR 0-Arsenal 0.
Straight down the other end, Riviere is played in by Cisse, he is through on goal, but he stumbles and cannot get the shot away. Big chance. One added minute to come.
What an effort Coutinho! He bends an effort just wide from distance. Also looking for back-to-back goals.
SAVE! Fellaini gets up well at the back post too meet a Valencia cross, but Krul is equal to it, and beats the ball away. Needed more power.
There will be six minutes added on at the end of the first half at White Hart Lane due to the stoppage in play as Gomis received treatment.
QPR Sub: Clint Hill comes on for Nedum Onuoha.
GOAL LIVERPOOL! It’s another absolute belter from Henderson from the edge of the box after Coutinho’s first effort is blocked. He’s on fire!

Sturridge close! Keane takes a chance heading back to his keeper following a blocked shot and it almost falls straight into the path of Sturridge.
Sterling sets Henderson and his side footed shot is well saved by Heaton for another corner.
Arsenal sub: Gabriel's going to have to come off. Replaced by Koscielny.
Paul Konchesky was booked in the build-up to that chance for Bony, having clipped the heels of David Silva.
Jenkinson lifts in a great cross to the back post Sakho's run, and he heads down to the low corner, and Courtois stoops to palm away.
Would have been some goal from Cisse. He flicks it over his head, and lashes a volley at goal, but scuffs it well wide.
Now a booking for Arsenal. Bellerin receives a yellow for a foul on Hoilett
First yellow of the game and it's little surprise that it's Karl Henry. A shove in the back of Rosicky and Arsenal have a promising freekick.
GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Chelsea. Hazard scores. Fabregas finds Ramires running on the right of the box, and his simple cross is headed past Adrian by Hazard.
WHAT A MISS! Huge opportunity for Rooney. Great touch from Young kills the bal into the path of the England captain, but with the flag staying down, he drags the shot wide from the penalty spot. Time seemed to stand still with everyone expecting the flag. Right call, but Rooney should have buried that.
GOAL!! KI DRAWS SWANS LEVEL!!! Eric Dier fouls Sigurdsson on the edge of the box. The Icelandic midfielder steps up and smashes a brilliant free kick against the post. Spurs initialy clear, but as Neil Taylor clips the ball back into the box Ki Sung-yeung keeps his composure to side-foot past Hugo Lloris.
Liverpool force a second early corner and Henderson heads over the bar. It was a decent chance.
Corner for West Ham on the right. Noble swings his cross away from Courtois, and it's cleared. Noble wins it back, slides it inside for Nolan, Kouyate reacts first, and his shot is straight at Courtois and behind.
Good build-up play from Spurs as Eriksen flicks the ball to Andros Townsend who forces Lukasz Fabianski into a good low save.
Great save Heaton! Nice interplay between Sterling, Sturridge and Lallana. The latter touches onto Sturridge and the striker gets his shot away but Heaton touches around his post. Almost the ideal start.
Terry is booked now for [REDACTED}. No, not really, for dragging Valencia to the ground 25 yards out.
Zouma has landed equally after a rough challenge. Kouyate is booked for sticking his arm across his face.
NO PENALTY! Huge shouts from the St James' Park terraces as Riviere goes down under challenge from Chris Smalling. Referee Anthony Tayor is having none of it. Replays show that there was contact, but nothing given.
Swansea get the game back under way with Nelson Oliveira on in Gomis' place.
KICK-OFF! Referee Lee Mason blows the whistle to get us underway here at Anfield. Liverpool could go level with big rivals Man Utd by the end of the night. Incentive if ever they need it. Burnley all in black tonight instead of their other change strip of grey. Liverpool setting up 3-4-3, Burnley 4-4-2.
Oscar passes into the box for Costa to slide towards, but he lifts a shot well over the bar with a n outstreched shin. Collins has replaced Reid.
GOAL!!! CHADLI PUTS SPURS IN FRONT!! Danny Rose gets forward on the left hand side and puts in a great cross that Nacer Chadli calmly side-foots home while airborne.
Great chance already for United! Di Maria is played in by Rooney after a defensive mix up, but the Argentine fails to pull the trigger when he has the chance, and he is forced out. Lack of confidence maybe to blame?
Referee Michael Oliver blows his whistle and we are under way at Spurs.
The match gets underway. Are you not entertained?
We are underway here. The crowd seem up for it. Van Gaal has lost twice on this ground before, can he have more success this time around?

That's full time. An impressive recovery from Sunderland's players after their manager tried to ruin things for them with his sending off. However, his introduction of Van Aanholt for the equaliser deserves some credit, as it changed the match.
GOAL!! BENTEKE WINS IT FOR VILLA!!! The Belgian striker calmly slots home from 12 yards to surely seal three precious points.
Delaney is booked for a kicking the heel of Mane as he looks to take a freekick.

Chris Baird comes on for West Brom as they look to run down the clock.
Three minutes of time to be added on. Grealish wins a free kick on the left wing. Bacuna stands over it, but his delivery is poor and the ball floats out.

Alvarez is booked for not backing away from the free kick on the left wing.
Hutton and Berahino both booked, and the Villa full-back's challenge was a bit naughty there. He will have to serve a two-game suspension too.
Gardner clatters into Hutton to stop a counter and the former Villa player is booked.
Crystal Palace make their first change, with Shola Ameobi on for James McArthur.
GOAL! Southampton 1-0 Crystal Palace. It didn't seem like it would ever come but Southampton have their goal! Ward-Prowse, on for less that five minutes, turns past Dann and shoots from just outside the area. Speroni pushes the shot straight out in front of him and Mane is there to dink it into the net. Poor goalkeeping.
Villa roll the dice for the final time as Andreas Weimann comes on for Agbonlahor.
N'Doye has a chance from point-blank range and Pantilimon somehow stops the header.
Clark picks up a booking as he checks Ideye on halfway.
GOAL! Hull City 1-1 Sunderland. Rodwell scores - Van Aanholt receives the ball on the left, gets to the byline and stands up a cross. Rodwell is a yard from the line and glances the ball into the net, maybe hitting his arm.
Elmohamady skips into the box, beating a man and stays upright. He cuts the ball back for Livermore, who tries to cut the ball to the far corner, but Pantilimon saves. At the other end, Defoe's shot from distance is straight at McGregor.
Final change for Southampton, with James Ward-Prowse on for Djuricic.
Great ball from Yacob looking for Gardner in the Villa area but the midfielder checks his run and the ball goes out. Meanwhile, Sherwood brings on Leandro Bacuna for Cleverley.
Changes now,. Vergini swapped for Van Aanholt, and Graham is off for Wickham, and Hernandez comes on for Jelavic.
Robertson has an attempt from the edge of the box, right-footed, and it's just wide of the corner.
Big chance for Villa as Hutton picks out Grealish but the youngster cushions a side-foot straight at Foster.

GOAL!! BERAHINO SNATCHES AN EQUALISER!! Clark is forced to concede a corner as Morrison fires in a cross from the right. Brunt comes across to take the set piece, and Berahino is on hand to head home after Lescott does brilliantly to nod back across goal.
Rodwell has a shot from distance that flicks off the top of a defender, and McGregor reacts quickly.
Alvarez replaces Cattermole.
Cattermole is booked for a cynical challenge on Meyler to stop him breaking from halfway. Bruce then loops a header over for Hull.
O'Shea reaches a cross from the right and his glancing header is deflected just wide of the post. Hull break from the second corner.
N'Zogbia gets a cross in from the right that West Brom only half clear. Hutton fires the loose ball well over, though. That is N'Zogbia's final act as Jack Grealish comes on.
First change of the game as Elia is replaced by Dusan Tadic.
Two appeals for a penalty. Robertson's cross strikes the arm of a defender from two yards, and then Jelavic goes down in the box, and Mike Dean isn't interested in that either. Bruce kicks over nothing.
Okore fouls Ideye on the left-hand touchline. Brunt whips in the delivery and Dawson heads inches over the bar.

N'Doye has room at the back post but instead of opting for the selfish shot, he crosses for O'Shea to clear.

We're back under way at Villa Park. Can the hosts hold on to three vital points?
Crystal Palace get us back underway at St Mary's.
That's half time, see you in 15 minutes.
H-T! Southampton 0-0 Crystal Palace. A disappointing first-half comes to an end after the scrappiest period of the game so far. Southampton have had the vast majority of the ball and nine shots in total, but with only one on target it's been relatively comfortable for Crystal Palace. The visitors will want to get their forward players involved more, particularly Dwight Gayle, but would be far the happier side if the result stays this way.
The half-time whistle blows, and Villa deservedly lead through Agbonlahor's excellent goal. It could have been more, but Pulis will have noted the hosts' nerves at the back. The Baggies are still very much in this. Find out if they can find a way back into the game in 15 minutes.
Villa hit the post! Delph hasn't scored in the league this season and he won't come much closer as he checks onto his right foot and curls an effort past Foster that comes back off the woodwork.
McShane lunges in on Defoe, winning the ball but also obviously roughing up the player first. He's booked.
N'Zogbia draws Yacob into making a foul, and the Argentine goes into the book.
Poyet was so frustrated by the referee's decision that he booted a water bucket and has been sent off. He then wandered over to Steve Bruce and had a word, and Bruce has to be held back from chasing Poyet down the tunnel. Poyet's toast.
Rodwell toes a ball past Bruce on the edge of the box, and collapses under a non-existent challenge. Rodwell is booked for diving, and Poyet is miffed.
After a bit of head-tennis Southampton clear and Djuricic breaks towards the halfway line but is dragged down by McArthur, resulting in the first yellow of the game.
Agbonlahor gets behind the Baggies defence once again and despite a heavy touch is able to fire under Foster. Joleon Lecott gets back though to clear off the line and save West Brom.
Defoe receives the ball just inside the box, on the left. He takes a touch or two inside, and snatches at a shot that drags wide of goal.
GOAL!! AGBONLAHOR PUTS VILLA IN FRONT!! The former England man gets his goal as he latches onto Benteke's flick on and finishes calmly under Foster.
GOAL! Hull City 1-0 Sunderland. N'Doye scores - Huddlestone drills in a low ball to the left of the useless wall, and N'Doye clips it past the keeper into the bottom far corner.
Agbonlahor does well to turn on Benteke's knock down and gets a shot away that Ben Foster fumbles. The ball didn't cross the whole of the line though and Moss waves play on.
Brown clatters Elmohamady after he overruns the ball on the edge of ths box. He's booked. Elmohamday looks in a fair amount of pain, and the physio is there with his walkie talkie.
The match gets underway, and both sides will be nervous. If Sunderland win, they will leapfrog Hull into 15th place.
Referee Jonathan Moss blows his whistle and we are under way at Villa Park. The famous old ground is far from full at kick-off.
