This Premier League season continues to amaze as Jamie Vardy scores twice to beat Liverpool. Manchester City have their own star striker to thank as Sergio Aguero edged them to victory over Sunderland. Jordan Ayew's red card helped West Ham beat 10-man Aston Villa while Tottenham have thumped Norwich through Harry Kane's double. Finally, Arsenal have lost ground in the title race after drawing with Southampton.

Well that is all we have time for on this live blog. We will have the reaction from around the grounds to come. We're back tomorrow for the final two mid-week games including Watford vs Chelsea, but until then goodbye.

West Ham have beaten Aston Villa 2-0, while Tottenham have overcome Norwich. Full time too in the north east where City have won at Sunderland.

It ends Arsenal 0-0 Southampton, and boos ring out around the Emirates. Still playing at the Stadium of Light where City lead.

Full time at the King Power Stadium and Leicester stay top of the Premier League with a Jamie Vardy inspired win over Liverpool. Still playing at the Emirates.

Goal: Norwich 0-3 Tottenham (Harry Kane)

Into added time at the Emirates. Huge period coming up for Arsenal.

Goal: West Ham 2-0 Aston Villa (Cheikou Kouyate)

Done and dusted at Upton Park. Villa send everyone forward from the corner and West Ham break. Valencia feeds Kouyate, who lashes home from 10 yards.

As things stand Arsenal are losing ground on Leicester and Manchester City in the title race and they need some late inspiration here if they are to grab all three points.

Laurent Koscielny misses a sitter from six yards as he meets Ozil's cross. Southampton riding their luck as Arsenal continue to go close.

Goal: Leicester 2-0 Liverpool (Jamie Vardy)

Jamie Vardy's fabulous season continues as Leicester double their lead. Okazaki's shot is miss-hit and then deflected and as Lovren hesitates Vardy takes full advantage to plunder past Mignolet.

Walcott on and straight into the action, forcing a double save from Fraser Forster.

Theo Walcott on for Joel Campbell at the Emirates. Arsenal have looked devoid of ideas tonight against a stubborn Southampton.

Goal: West Ham 1-0 Aston Villa (Michail Antonio)

The breakthrough at last for the Hammers, and it comes via a route one ball from Mark Noble. The ball comes from left to right and as Villa switch off and Antonio guides a header into the far corner.

Goal: Leicester 1-0 Liverpool (Jamie Vardy)

Pick that out! The Foxes' man of the moment smashes the hosts into the lead. Vardy chases a long ball down field and instead of bringing it down he hits it first time over Mignolet and into the back of the net.

Liverpool much the better in this second half but Firmino can't find the target with his latest effort, blazing the ball over from 20 yards.

Sanchez and Ozil combine down he left for Arsenal but the German's pull back evades everyone in the box. An improvement from the Gunners but they need to discover some thrust.

Mahrez breaks for Leicester and he has Vardy all alone to his left but Clyne intercepts the pass. The England was offside anyway but the home side always threatening on the break.

Liverpool straight on the front foot and can has his close range effort deflected over.

Back under way in the second half of each of our 7:45pm kick-offs.

Worth mentioning that it is indeed half time at Norwich, West Ham and Sunderland. Sergio Aguero has Manchester City ahead at the Stadium of Light, Dele Alli and harry Kane have put Spurs ahead at Carrow Road while West Ham are being held by 10-man Aston Villa.

Half time at the King Power Stadium where it is Leicester 0-0 Liverpol. We have reached the break at the Emirates where Southampton are holding Arsenal.

Very little to report as far as goalmouth action is concerned in our two featured games as we head towards half time. I am on a rotten run of goals in matches I have been covering, with expect more of the same; unfortunately.

Leicester have been al over Liverpool at times in this first half and Mignolet comes to the visitors' rescue, making a fine save from Mahrez's effort from range.

West Ham have not exactly taken advantage of Villa going down to ten men, but they should really be ahead when James Tomkins' cross shot is headed over by Enner Valencia from all of three yards out.

Goal: Norwich 0-2 Tottenham (Harry Kane)

Goal: Sunderland 0-1 Manchester City (Sergio Aguero)

Arsenal knocking on the door and they should be ahead. Giroud knocks on Bellerin's cross and Ozil's outstretched leg is blocked by Forster.

Red card: Jordan Ayew (Aston Villa)

Remi Garde has seen the club's board abandon him in the transfer window, and now less than 20 minutes in at Upton Park, so has one of his players. Villa have a throw down by the corner and Ayew tangles with Cresswell before delivery a strong elbow to the face of the Hammers full-back. Jon Moss has no hesitation and you can see why on the replay. Shocking stuff.

Arsenal should be ahead. Ozil brings the ball down with a velvet touch but Forster is equal to his effort from close range.

Schmeichel saves well from Emre Can from close range, but the German was offside from Firmino's flicked header. Lively start at a rocking King Power Stadium.

Great stat after Dele Alli's latest contribution....

How has Mignolet kept Leicester out there? Jamie Vardy skins Lovren, crosses for Okazaki whose header is clawed onto the roof of the net by Mignolet. Fine save from the Liverpool stopper but he should never have been given the opportunity.

James Ward-Prowse takes aim at the Emirates Stadium and it takes a last minute save from Petr Cech to push the ball from danger.

Goal: Norwich 0-1 Tottenham (Dele Alli)

Leicester have wasted little time getting into Liverpool and they almost lead straight away. Riyad Mahrez comes inside and shoots towards Mignolet's back post, but wide.

Under way across the country.

Teams on their way out across the country. We have feeds coming in from across the Premier League so you won't miss a kick tonight. Updates on the way.

Around five minutes until kick-off in our 7:45pm games. Our featured games are Arsenal vs Southampton and Leicester vs Liverpool, but we will have news of all the goals as they go in across the country. I doubt it will go down without event.

All eyes on Manchester City and their manager Manuel Pellegrini, who sensationally announced his departure from the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season, with Pep Guardiola confirmed as his departure. Pellegrini takes his City side to Sunderland tonight and should results go their way elsewhere, could end the night on the top of the Premier League. How apt that would be.

Aston Villa's plight at the bottom could become all-but insurmountable tonight if results go against them. They could be as many as 12 points from safety with 14 matches remaining should they lose at West Ham United and after an uninspiring transfer window when not a single player arrived has ensured the nails are being prepared to knock into their relegation coffin.

The top four in the Premier League are all in action tonight and could this be the start of Leicester City's route to the title? Tonight sees the start of the three games which could shape the remainder of the season and see their title challenge either defined as a mid-season fling or love at first sight. The small matter of Manchester City and Arsenal follow after tonight's visit of Liverpool.

You may have noticed the omission of three games, which kick-off at 8pm, from our list of games but not to worry we have coverage of those matches including Manchester United vs Stoke City, on a separate live blog here. Don't say we don't treat you.

Some interesting lines from those teams. Alexis Sanchez is back from the start for Arsenal for the first time since November. For Leicester, who face Liverpool, they are led by Jamie Vardy who reports suggest is closing in on signing a new contract, while Christian Benteke is on the bench for the visitors. At Carrow Road meanwhile, Heung Min-son accompanies Harry Kane in attack for Tottenham against Norwich.

Turning out attention to Leicester vs Liverpool, the home side have just one injury concern in the form of Daniel Amartey, with Shinji Okazaki expected to feature.

Liverpool are without a host of players including Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho. Jordan Henderson could be replace by Joe Allen.

Team news is less than 10 minutes away, but let's have a look at how we expect both teams to line up starting at Arsenal vs Southampton.

Alexis Sanchez should make his first start since returning from a hamstring injury but Tomas Rosicky is out again with a thigh issue. Mohamed Elneny could make his debut.

Southampton are without Steven Davis and Graziano Pelle so Charlie Austin could make his full debut.

After the dullest of all deadline days, you would be forgiven for deciding against staying up until 11pm for a second consecutive evening in the hope of seeing a bout of drama. But in the form of the 2015-16 Premier League season dramatic moments have not been in short supply, and tonight promises to be no different. There are eight games to get the pulse racing, including all of the top four in action in a pivotal evening in the title race. The big games see Leicester host Liverpool, Arsenal host Southampton and Man City travel to Sunderland. Team news from these games and more, on the way.
