Sordell fouls Terry as he competes for a loose ball and deservedly gets a yellow card.


Here comes Drogba! Booed by the Burnley fans, lauded by the visiting supporters. He replaces Eden Hazard.


Marvin Sordell replaces Ings, and comes on for his Burnley debut.


John Obi Mikel replaces Oscar for Chelsea.


Willian is coming on for Schurrle.


Burnley are going to make a couple of substitutions. Terry heads clear from Jutkiewicz and the Burnley striker is deemed offisde. Ashley Barnes and Michael Kightly come on for Jutkiewicz and Taylor.


Chelsea kick off the second half. Ings has an early run at goal but pulls his shot wide of Courtois' goal.


GOAL: Burnley concede another corner, and Ivanovic volleys home Fabregas' deep corner to make it Burnley 1-3 Chelsea.


Referee Oliver books Costa for diving as he and Heaton compete for the ball following a poor Ben Mee backpass. That was a bad decision, because Heaton did clip the Spain striker.


GOAL: What a goal. Fabregas with a lovely one-touch pass to set up Schurrle to score at the back post with a low half-volley. It is now Burnley 1-2 Chelsea.


GOAL and it is Burnley 1-1 Chelsea. Fabregas sets up Ivanovic down the right with a backheel, the cross evades everyone and hits the post, and poacher Diego Costa slams the loose ball past Heaton.


GOAL for Burnley. Scott Arfield controls the ball on the edge of the box after a Taylor dink back into the area, and slams the ball past Courtois.


Burnley kick off from left to right and we are off at Turf Moor.


BURNLEY: Heaton; Trippier, Shackell, Duff, Mee; Arfield, Jones, Marney, Taylor; Ings, Jutkiewicz. Subs:Gilks, Dummigan, Long, Wallace, Kightly, Sordell, Barnes.///CHELSEA: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Fabregas, Matic; Schurrle, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa. Subs: Cech, Zouma, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Willian, Torres, Drogba.


FULL-TIME: Newcastle 0-2 Manchester City. Efficient performance from the visitors - the sort that enables a title challenge.


GOAL! Newcastle 0-2 City. Aguero is one-on-one with Coloccini. He beats his man and crashes a shot at goal - Krul saves. But the Argentine is immediately on his feet and slots the rebound beyond the despairing lunge of the Newcastle stopper. Game over.


YELLOW! Fernando kicks an opposition knee. That's a booking.


CHANCE! Ayoze latches onto the ball inside the area, cuts inside and has a crack... Deflected... Just wide. So close.


NEWCASTLE SUB! Alan Pardew's final throw of the dice - youngster Ayoze Perez. Riviere makes way.


CITY SUB! Dzeko is hauled off for Sergio Aguero.


CITY SUB! James Milner is on for Nasri.


YELLOW! Riviere enters the book.


YELLOW! Boom. Kompany crashes into Colback. It's a booking - free-kick to the hosts on the edge of the area.


CLOSE! Toure catches a free-kick with the inside of his boot and watches it skim the bar.


CITY SUB! Jovetic's time in the visiting attack is over. Fernandinho comes on. That'll prompt a slight change of system.


NEWCASTLE CHANGE! Gabriel Obertan is on for Anita.


The City stopper wanders off his line to meet the free-kick, but Paul Dummett meets it first and is unfortunate to see his header shoot over.


ANOTHER YELLOW! Kolarov slides in and clatters Riviere near the right corner flag.


YELLOW! Demichelis goes into the book for hacking down Cabella.


CHANCE! Cabella slices over the bar after appearing in a decent position.


CHANCE! The corner skims all the way across to Gouffran. The Frenchman controls the ball with his chest, but it just won't drop in time. City suffocate the midfielder and successfully protect their goal.


We're back up and running.


HALF-TIME. Newcastle 0-1 City. That's our lot for now. We'll be back in 15 minutes to see if Newcastle can mount a response.


GOAL! Newcastle 0-1 City. Dzeko latches onto a long ball in the inside-left channel before taking out two defenders with a sublime backheel. David Silva marches onto the loose ball and slots home. The champions lead!


YELLOW! Silva goes into the book for a cynical trip.


Underway at St James' Park.


FULL-TIME! Liverpool 2-1 Southampton. Mark Clattenburg calls time on an entertaining encounter. Southampton will be kicking themselves...


WHAT A CHANCE! Schneiderlin thunders a shot at goal which Mignolet does superbly to tip onto the bar. The ball crashes down and into the line. Did it go in? Doesn't matter because Long will surely head home the rebound... No! He's put it wide.


YELLOW (belated update): Davis was booked just prior to Sturridge's goal.


The teams are in - NEWCASTLE: Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Dummett, Colback, Anita, Sissoko, Cabella, Gouffran, Riviere...Subs: Aarons, Perez, Haidara, Elliot, Obertan, Steven Taylor, Abeid /// MAN CITY: Hart, Clichy, Demichelis, Kompany, Kolarov, Fernando, Toure, Nasri, Jovetic, Silva, Dzeko... Subs: Zabaleta, Milner, Caballero, Jesus Navas, Aguero, Fernandinho, Boyata.


SOUTHAMPTON SUB! Davis is replaced by Lloyd Isgrove - a kid with a bundle of energy.


GOAL! Liverpool 2-1 Southampton. Henderson’s cross flicks off an opponent and into the air. Sterling nods it in the direction of Sturridge who gets the faintest of touches to divert it beyond Forster. Relief at Anfield!


CHANCE! Sturridge has a crack, it loops into the sky and falls at the feet of Lambert. Surely not... The former Saints striker lashes at the dropping ball but, somehow, manages to skew his effort away from goal.


LIVERPOOL SUB! Rickie Lambert fulfils a childhood dream by coming on for Liverpool. Coutinho makes way.


SOUTHAMPTON SUB! Here comes another new boy. Tadic departs, on comes Shane Long.


DESPERATE! The Liverpool defence collapses as Clyne tiptoes into the hosts' penalty area. It breaks to Ward-Prowse who elects to pass when he probably should have hit it.


YELLOW! Schneiderlin goes into the book for a naughty challenge.


LIVERPOOL SUB! Lucas departs with Joe Allen coming on.


WHAT A CHANCE! Southampton break down the left. It finds its way to Ward-Prowse inside the penalty area, who flicks it towards Davis. He must score... No - he's bottled it! Straight at Mignolet.


GOAL! Liverpool 1-1 Southampton. Tadic flicks a sublime backheel into the path of Clyne who thunders the ball into the roof of the net from inside the penalty area!


We're back!


That's our lot for half number one. We'll be back in 15 minutes.


YELLOW! Javi Manquillo clatters into Tadic and deservedly enters the book.


GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Southampton. Henderson raises his chin, spots Sterling in acres of space on the inside-left channel and plays a beautiful, sweeping pass out to the youngster. Sterling bears down on goal before coolly slotting into the bottom corner. The hosts lead!


PENALTY SHOUT! Liverpool charge forward down their right flank, it breaks to Daniel Sturridge in the box who is scythed down just inside the penalty area... Nope, the ref's having none of that.


Liverpool, all in red, get us underway at Anfield.
