WEST BROM 0-3 MAN CITY - CHANCES!

Gary Maiden reports: “Smart save from Joe Hart to thwart James Morrison from just outside the area. His right footed strike looks destined for the bottom corner but the England No.1 does well to stretch his arm out and preserve his side’s 3-0 advantage. Moments later, Samir Nasri should make it 4-0 after collecting a Jesus Navas cutback but his deflected effort curls wide.”

FOOTBALL LEAGUE LATEST

Big Emile is back!!! Bolton raised a few eyebrows with the signing of veteran Emile Heskey last week but he's in the side today against Blackburn and in the goals to make it 1-1! Assist? Fellow veteran Eidur Gudjohnsen, because of course.

VIEW FROM THE HAWTHORNS

Gary Maiden reports: “A quiet opening 10 minutes to this second half but that will suit City down to the ground with all of the hard work done in the opening 45 minutes. Heavy snow is now falling all around the stadium and Alan Irvine looks a very cold, very lonely man right now out on the touchline.”

SUNDERLAND 1-2 HULL - CHESTER GOAL

GOAL: All change! A free kick is saved smartly by Pantilimon, who tips it over the bar for a corner. The ensuing delivery from Ramirez is a good one, but it is attacked even better by JAMES CHESTER, who emphatically sends it past the keeper and into the back of the net!

CRYSTAL PALACE 0-3 SOUTHAMPTON - ALDERWEIRELD GOAL

GOAL: Another for Southampton! Too simple as Ward-Prowse clips in a corner to the centre of the goal, and TOBY ALDERWEIRELD simply rises above his marker to plant a header home.

MAN UTD 3-0 NEWCASTLE - VAN PERSIE GOAL

GOAL: It's 3-0 United and that should be that. Wayne Rooney finds himself in far too much space down the middle and picks out ROBIN VAN PERSIE to wrap up the points in the box with a downward header.

LEICESTER 1-1 TOTTENHAM - ULLOA GOAL

GOAL: Brilliant play by Mahrez, who threatened a lot towards the end of the first half. The Algerian beats Bentaleb to the ball, skips past his compatriot and then plays a low ball in towards the near post for LEONARDO ULLOA, who gets across Fazio and steers home.

CRYSTAL PALACE 0-2 SOUTHAMPTON - BERTRAND GOAL

GOAL: Mane tricks his way into a good position down the wing and then turns provider, sliding a low ball to the back post. From there, RYAN BERTRAND arrives and cracks a lovely first-time effort into the back of the net!

AS THINGS STAND - RELEGATION FIGHT

Crystal Palace have dropped to 18th after falling behind at home to Southampton. A point would still be enough to move them back out of the drop zone, providing Burnley don’t beat Liverpool.

AS THINGS STAND - TOP-FOUR BATTLE

Southampton have leapfrogged West Ham and are back up to fourth place. Tottenham would be just two points off a Champions League place if they hold on to win, while Arsenal are set to begin their evening kick-off against QPR five points off fourth.
