WEST HAM 2-0 LEICESTER

Harry Sherlock reports: “West Ham head off the pitch with all three points in the bag, thanks to superb goals from Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing. Leicester, meanwhile, turned in a performance befitting their league standing, with Nigel Pearson’s men worryingly blunt going forward and shockingly porous in defence.”

HULL 0-1 SWANSEA

Alex Moretto reports: “It was hardly the prettiest of goals to win it for Swansea, but as the saying goes, you need to be lucky to be good. Steve Bruce would know very little about that, as luck has not been on his side this campaign. The defeat is another massive blow to his job security as calls for his dismissal are already raining down from the home supporters.”

QPR 3-2 WEST BROM

Kyle Hancox reports: “QPR's fantastic home form continues and that's 13 points out of a possible 15 at Loftus Road. The Austin-inspired win takes them up to 15th in the table as Burnley drop into the relegation zone. Their search for an away point does not get any easier as they visit the Emirates on Boxing Day to face Arsenal.”

SOUTHAMPTON 3-0 EVERTON

Dan Brett reports: “Southampton started very slowly and the game wasn't without controversy, as referee Jonathan Moss denied the hosts a clear penalty. Romelu Lukaku may have been unfortunate to bag an own goal, but he and his fellow forwards offered little.”

ASTON VILLA 1-1 MAN UTD

Tom Davis reports: “Aston Villa could have won it late on but will be happy with this point against a side who have, historically, enjoyed playing on this ground. It’s now a 19-game unbeaten run here for Manchester United but they will rue not taking advantage of 10-man Villa.”

TOTTENHAM 2-1 BURNLEY - WALLACE DENIED!

Greg Stobart reports: “It’s been an uneventful second half at Tottenham but Burnley give the hosts a late scare as Ross Wallace whips a free-kick over the wall from 25 yards but is denied by a scrambling Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal.”

QPR 3-2 WEST BROM - AUSTIN GOAL

GOAL: It's heartbreak for West Brom! The corner is delivered by Barton and CHARLIE AUSTIN gets up ahead of Pocogonoli, who really should have done better, and heads the ball back across Foster and Loftus Road erupts!

SOUTHAMPTON 3-0 EVERTON - ONE RONALD KOEMAN

Dan Brett reports: “It could so easily be four. Southampton are cutting through Everton's defence like a knife through butter but Bertrand fails to beat Howard one-on-one. ‘One Ronald Koeman’ sing the home supporters. Much improved from last weekend and full credit to the Dutchman.”

ASTON VILLA 1-1 MAN UTD - BACUNA CHANCE!

Tom Davis reports: “Not long left in this game but the action is still coming thick and fast. Manchester United have been on top since their equalising goal but have yet to carve out a real goalscoring opportunity. Gabriel Agbonlahor's dismissal has forced a re-shuffle from Paul Lambert and substitute Leandro Bacuna has come agonisingly close. He tries a shot from distance but it dips just over the bar. Great strike.”

WEST HAM 2-0 LEICESTER - ADRIAN SAVES

Harry Sherlock reports: “In a match of little quality, Adrian has just pulled an absolutely world-class save out of the bag. A ball is fired in and David Nugent volleys at goal, only for the Spaniard to somehow palm the ball away to keep the scores at 2-0. Stunning.”
