HULL 0-1 LEICESTER

Tom Webber reports: “Leicester have their first Premier League victory in over three months thanks to Mahrez's first-half strike. They spent much of the second half clinging to the lead, with Hull hitting the woodwork twice. Both teams ended the match with 10 men, but it is the visitors that take all three points!”

NEWCASTLE 3-1 EVERTON - COLBACK GOAL

GOAL: That is surely game, set and match at St James' Park. Ross Barkley's dreadful touch from Daryl Janmaat's searching ball leaves JACK COLBACK clean through and the diminutive midfielder produces a cute finish between the legs of Joel Robles to net his first for the club. Newcastle have been excellent since going behind.

ALLARDYCE RUES REFEREEING DECISIONS

More from Big Sam: "Against us [2-1 defeat to Everton in November], Lukaku was onside when the ball ricocheted to him. Can you tell me what is an offside and isn't? Some of the major decisions keep appearing to be incorrect more often than not."

ALLARDYCE ON DISALLOWED SONG GOAL

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "A combination of a couple of bad misses and a very bad decision to disallow the goal... after conceding the first, the second was a blow. If we had been allowed that goal, as we should have done, and the way we've played at home, I don't think we'd have lost to Arsenal today."

ASTON VILLA 0-0 SUNDERLAND

Julian De Martinis reports: “Aston Villa went down to 10 men for the third time in their last four matches but did very well and nearly won the game regardless. The first half might have been dour but the action following the red card was often entertaining. Sunderland, with a man advantage for so long, will see this as a missed opportunity.”

AS THINGS STAND

Europa League or not, real questions have to start being asked of Everton this season. They set out to challenge for a Champions League place but are on course to end the year in 12th place and 12 points off the top four. Newcastle, as things stand, will go ninth.

NEWCASTLE 2-1 EVERTON - PEREZ GOAL

GOAL: Newcastle have quickly picked up where they left off here and find themselves in front! Moments after Yoan Gouffran is denied by Joel Robles, AYOZE PEREZ sends the home side into raptures by turning on to his right foot and side-footing into the corner from just inside the area.

VIEW FROM ST JAMES’ PARK

Matthew Sherry reports: “Roberto Martinez has, indeed, turned to Ross Barkley - who was introduced during the interval in place of James McCarthy. Will he make the difference?”

WEST HAM 1-2 ARSENAL

Reda Maher reports: “Not quite a smash-and-grab but Arsenal went 2-0 up very much against the run of play, and the Hammers will be aggrieved at coming away empty-handed after a late rally. The Gunners do not look ready for anything like a title challenge and need reinforcements in midfield and defence, but this win takes them within goal difference of fourth place heading into the New Year.”

MOURINHO: THERE IS A CAMPAIGN AGAINST CHELSEA

Four punishments for simulation this month, four "bad yellow cards". That's the view of Jose Mourinho after Cesc Fabregas was (harshly) booked today for a dive. "I think it’s clearly the result of something that looks like a campaign," said the agitated Chelsea boss to Sky Sports.

MAN CITY 2-2 BURNLEY

Rob Pollard reports from the Etihad Stadium: "City have blown their chance of closing the gap on Chelsea to a single point after a second-half collapse from two goals up against Burnley. The visitors were superb, full of running and tireless work, but City, who also miss the opportunity to set a new club record of 10 consecutive wins, will be disappointed at dropping two points from a winning position."

VIEW FROM ST JAMES' PARK

Matthew Sherry reports: "It's half-time at St James' Park and what an entertaining 45 minutes we've witnessed. We're level at the break, although Daryl Janmaat almost put Newcastle ahead on the stroke of the whistle. Everton have faded slightly after a bright start and it wouldn't be surprising to see Ross Barkley introduced in the not-too-distant future."
