ASTON VILLA 0-0 NEWCASTLE

Sammy Lee reports from Villa Park: “The Villa fans are getting increasingly frustrated here. Okay, they do start on a 6 out of 10 on the frustrated scale, but they think they should be getting far more decisions from the referee. With Ayoze Perez on for Newcastle and Darren Bent on for Villa, this is anybody's game now as both teams shuffle their attacking packs. So far, though, the central defensive pairings have been impressive for both teams.”

CRYSTAL PALACE v WEST HAM

Jay Jaffa reports from Selhurst Park: “Both sides are looking for their first points of the season though the hosts remain in the unenviable position of operating under a caretaker manager. Keith Millen has his eyes firmly set on replacing Tony Pulis permanently and with the club scrambling around for options following the Malky Mackay drama, you feel this is a fine opportunity for him to stake his claim with a win.”

SUBSTITUTION

Off goes Kieran Richardson for Aston Villa, on comes Darren Bent. It looked like the striker’s days at Villa were numbered but Paul Lambert has given him, Alan Hutton and Charles N’Zogbia a way back into the first-team picture this season. As for Newcastle, they bring on new Spanish striker Ayoze Perez for Emmanuel Riviere.

SOUTHAMPTON v WEST BROM

Dan Brett reports from St Mary’s: “Comical pre-match build-up here on the South Coast, as the Southampton stadium announcer offers a free shirt to a lucky fan - but first, he has to guess which player is Fraser Forster. After a summer of change at St Mary's, I'm impressed that the youngster picked the right player.”

CRYSTAL PALACE v WEST HAM

Jay Jaffa reports from Selhurst Park: "Sam Allardyce will desperately be hoping to avoid defeat following the opening day loss to Tottenham. The pressure is on, supporters seem far from happy despite a relatively fruitful summer and Big Sam will know a second consecutive London derby loss could push him closer to the exit."

SOUTHAMPTON v WEST BROM

Dan Brett reports from St Mary’s: “So, there we have it. Ronald Koeman names an unchanged line-up from last weekend's defeat at Anfield, and places ex-Baggie Shane Long on the bench, while Alan Irvine also sticks with his side after their 2-2 draw against Sunderland.”

SUBSTITUTION - ENTER CARLOS SANCHEZ

Sammy Lee reports from Villa Park: “Carlos Sanchez is coming on! That should liven up the Aston Villa approach as Newcastle continue to exert their brand of impotent dominance. Having said that, the much-maligned Remy Cabella just played a great ball to Mike Williamson, but the defender miss-kicked his volley and it's still goalless.”

CHANCE FOR WILLIAMSON

Newcastle are piling the pressure on now. Remy Cabella is the architect again with a wonderful cross over to the unmarked Mike Williamson in acres of space at the far side of the area. The big defender can choose to power a header at goal or cut the ball back for a team-mate. He does neither - and horribly miscues a volley away from the target.

JANMAAT GOES CLOSE!

Aston Villa give the ball away cheaply through Charles N’Zogbia and Remy Cabella leads a Newcastle counter. He then plays the ball to his right to Daryl Janmaat, and the Dutchman checks inside and fizzes a left-footed strike narrowly wide of the top corner from the edge of the box. That would have been some goal!

TEAM NEWS - SOUTHAMPTON v WEST BROM

More from Dan Brett at St Mary’s: "Hearing that Southampton will name an unchanged starting XI this afternoon. Taider and Isgrove make the bench, as does Gardos."

CABELLA v N’ZOGBIA: PART TWO

Charles N’Zogbia is the first player to enter the book this afternoon after stamping on the calf of Remy Cabella. The resulting delivery from out wide on the left is nodded back by Mike Williamson towards the unmarked Daryl Janmaat, whose goal-bound diving header is palmed over by Brad Guzan. Good effort.

SOUTHAMPTON v WEST BROM

Dan Brett reports from St Mary's: "Plenty of buzz around St Mary's this afternoon, as Southampton hope to get their season up and running against West Brom. Saints boss Ronald Koeman will be hoping for another energetic performance as seen at Anfield last weekend, and could throw ex-Baggie Shane Long into his starting line-up.

"However, word in the press room is that new defender Florin Gardos looks set to miss out on his Premier League debut with a knee injury, while Jay Rodriguez remains sidelined. West Brom succumbed to a 2-2 draw against Sunderland last time out, and Alan Irvine will hope that Saido Berahino can add to his fine two-goal haul."
