GOAL: West Ham 1-0 Sunderland (Winston Reid)

Delight for the Hammers and heartbreak for David Moyes! The hosts have scored with virtually the last touch of the game - and the London Stadium erupts!

Full-time: Arsenal 0-0 Middlesbrough

A brilliant game at the Emirates and the teams share the spoils! Either side could have won easily won that match, but they lacked a killer finish.

A very Arsenal sort of performance, if you know what I mean.

Arsenal have the ball in the net - but it won't count! Ozil is correctly flagged offside and the Gunners' search for a goal goes on.

Tick-tock, tick-tock...

GOAL: Burnley 2-1 Everton (Scott Arfield)

Burnley looks to pinched all three points at Turf Moor! Scott Arfield is the hero for the hosts! What a dramatic finish!

Negredo is almost that man! He is played in by the rampant Traore, who pierces through the Arsenal defence, brushing Bellerin to one side and finding the striker.

But just as he's about to pull the trigger, Laurent Koscielny makes a great last-ditch tackle. Another close shave for the Gunners.

We're going to play five minutes of added time.

Time is ebbing away at the Emirates, also. The Gunners started this match so brightly, but are now scrambling around to find a winner. Still time for a hero to step forward...

GOAL: Leicester 3-1 Crystal Palace (Yohan Cabaye)

The Eagles have one back but it'll be no more than a consolation for Alan Pardew's men. Time is almost up at the King Power.

16:42

Boro, who are being pushed further and further back, look to be absolutely exhausted now.

Ramirez makes way for Stewart Downing. They made sure they took as long as possible over that change, too.

GOAL: Leicester 3-0 Crystal Palace (Christian Fuchs)

The doom and gloom that has surrounded the King Power of late has been lifted this afternoon!

Christian Fuchs has put the seal on the champion's easy win against Palace. The start of a good run? Claudio Ranieri will certainly hope so...

Alexis Sanchez lofts a ball over the top for the on-rushing Theo Walcott. However, the England winger cannot get his toe-end to the ball. Boro are hanging on to a point still.

Arsenal have fallen woefully short of the heights they have scaled in recent weeks so far this afternoon - but there's still time to find a winner.

Away from the Emirates, meanwhile, you can follow the team news from the evening kick-off here.

The crowd are really starting to voice their frustrations now. Arsenal need to be beating sides like Boro if they are going to lift the Premier League title in May.

Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is getting his final instructions via tablet. Yep, via tablet. The England international is replacing Mohamed Elneny for the last 15 minutes or so.

Alexis Sanchez is slipped through on goal but his effort is not well struck and Valdes is able to smother the ball under his body. A decent chance, that.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have decided to make a sub. Iwobi has been replaced by Lucas Perez. It's not before time, too, because we're approaching the last 20 minutes.

16:25

Leicester 2-0 Crystal Palace (Shinji Okazaki)

The champions are two goals up now and it's their Japanese star with the goal.

16:22

Mustasfi gives the ball away in a dangerous area and as Ramirez rounds him, the German launches an NFL-inspired tackle. That wasn't great play from Arsenal's summer signing. He's booked.

Arsenal subs are warming up now. Lucas Perez is among the guys going through some stretches.

GOAL: Burnley 1-1 Everton (Yannick Bolasie)

The Toffees have levelled things against Burnley. Yannick Bolasie has the goal - and Ronald Koeman's men will fancy getting all three points now.

16:17

Cech comes to Arsenal's rescue again!

Once more, Traore makes a break at searing speed down the right side and then unleashes a powerful shot towards goal. But Cech pulls off another stunning stop for the Gunners.

16:15

End-to-end action at the Emirates for the time being, with Traore leading another break for Boro. This time, though, his powerful cross cannot find a teammate and Bellerin is able to scramble the ball behind.

The subsequent corner comes to nothing and Petr Cech's cleansheet remains safe for the moment.

Arsenal are really pushing for a goal now. Alexis Sanchez blast a goal-bound effort from distance but Valdes makes up for his earlier error with an eye-catching stop down towards his left post.

Back at the Emirates, Alexis Sanchez has just struck a right-footed free-kick marginally wide of the post. I think Victor Valdes had his angles covered, to be fair.

GOAL: Hull 0-2 Stoke (Xherdan Shaqiri)

A second goal for Stoke and a second goal for Xherdan Shaqiri! The Swiss star may just have sealed three points for Mark Hughes' men.

Oh, that's already as close as Arsenal have come all afternoon! Ozil sends over a cross from the left side - and Victor Valdes makes an almighty mess of it.

The Spaniard gets underneath the ball and cannot claim it. However, Laurent Koscielny isn't able to steer the ball into the net and Boro escape.
