Full time: Everton 0-0 Liverpool

Well that was a tame way to end an overall entertaining afternoon in the Premier League. Earlier, Tottenham had Harry Kane to thank after overcoming Arsenal, James Milner hit a late equalier to deny Hull City their first ever win at Manchester City and Chelsea extended their lead at the top to seven points by winning at Aston Villa. Everton's draw with Liverpool is the only goalless draw we've had today.

Tomorrow we're back with West Ham v Manchester United and Burnley v West Brom in the hope of some entertainment but until then goodbye.

Three added on minutes at Goodison. Will we get a winner?

Everton's first shot on target and best chance of the night comes with less than four minutes left. Besic plays a superb switch pass and releases the Irishman whose rasping drive produces a fine save from Mignolet.

Ross Barkley, who was meant to come on in the first half, is now coming on for the final five minutes at Goodison. Just a hint of a bit more adventure from both sides, so will we have a late winner?

Rickie Lambert coming on for Liverpool. Raheem Sterling comes off for the final eight minutes.

Bit of fight from Everton as Lukaku chases a loose ball and forces a corner. That is as good as it is getting fokes, a slow Saturday evening.

Chance for Liverpool as Jordon Ibe gets to the byline and when the ball bounces off Moreno, Sturridge reacts quickest but his shot is well blocked. Everton producing nothing going forward and they look consigned to a point at best.

Entering the final quarter of this Merseyside derby and it is hard to see where a winner is coming from. Everton look very short of ideas while Liverpool have lacked a spark since Philippe Coutinho came off. Poor game it has to be said.

Before that substitution, worth mentioning that Steven Gerrard almost marked his final Premier League Merseyside derby with a cracking goal, with only Steven Naismith's flicked header denying him scoring with a cracking acrobatic volley.

Aaron Lennon on to make his Everton debut meanwhile.

Change for Liverpool as Coutinho comes off and Sturridge is on. Strange move all in all, which sees the Brazilian go off at the end of a week which saw him sign a five-year contract.

Back under way at Goodison Park. No changes at half time.

Half time: Everton 0-0 Liverpool

After a first 45 minutes which started fast and frenetic has ended with a bit of a whimper. Liverpool have probably edged the first period but Everton look solid. Perhaps a look at both benches might help break the deadlock.

Coutinho denied by Robles after turning this way and that outside the Everton box. The home side having their moments but little doubt the away side are the more threatening.

Liverpool almost ahead against and they come within inches of taking the lead. It's the 19-year-old Jordon Ibe at the centre of things again with a run and strike which cannons off the post. Everton living dangerously.

Chance for Liverpool. Sterliing somehow gets a shot away despite being smothered by Everton bodies and the ball comes across the six yard box and Ibe steals in at the back post and Robles has to dive at his feet to prevent the opening goal.

Early change for Liverpool as Lucas Leiva goes off with another injury to be replaced by Joe Allen. First quarter or an hour has whizzed by. Feisty game as many would expect.

Both sides starting at a pace at Goodison. Sterling shoots wide on two occasions while at the other end Lukaku fails to find the onrushing Naismith as Everton break. Gerrard has the first effort on target however, with Robles turning over his free-kick.

Under way at Goodison. Likely to be Steven Gerrard's final Merseyside derby in the Premier League tonight. What impact can he have?

Teams out at Goodison Park. Key game this for both sides. Updates on the way.

Wins for Tottenham and Southampton earlier this afternoon means Liverpool can't afford to drop points this evening if they wish to stay in touch in the top four race. They can go within four points of third place Saints if they win. Everton meanwhile are only six points above the relegation zone and though baring a thrashing they will remain 12th in the division whatever the result, they will want a moral boosting win going into the final third of the campaign.

Before kick-off at Goodison Park, an indication as to why this Merseyside derby is known as the friendly derby.

Quick look at both teams. Tim Howard misses out against for Everton, meaning that Robles comes in again for the home side, who are also without Leighton Baines.

Liverpool give Jordan Ibe his second Premier League start and his maiden Merseyside derby appearance at Goodison Park. Daniel Sturridge is on the bench.


Everton v Liverpool:

Everton: Joel, Oviedo, Jagielka, Stones, Coleman, Besic, Barry, McCarthy, Mirallas, Naismith, Lukaku.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Lucas, Henderson, Gerrard, Moreno, Ibe, Coutinho, Sterling

Well full time in each of the five 3pm kick-offs but we've got more where that came from with our final match of the day, as Everton host Liverpool in the Merseyside derby. Team news on the way.

Goal: Queens Park Rangers 0-1 Southampton (Sadio Mane)

Goal: Manchester City 1-1 Hull City (James Milner)

James Milner curls home with a fabulous free kick but City want more. Two minutes of added on time.

Strange thing about the second half at the Etihad Stadium is while City have had all of the ball, Allan McGregor has not been called upon all afternoon really. Even when Aguero pulls the ball down and smashes against the crossbar, McGregor is only motionless.

Juan Cuadrado on for Chelsea as the leaders look to build on their 20-1m lead at Villa, who have looked subdued since the visitors went back in front. At the moment, Chelsea are going eight points clear at the top.

It has been all Manchester City in this second half as they chase an equaliser but Hull have been stubborn and disciplined and in truth, bar a flurry of corners, the hosts have not looked like scoring at all this afternoon. Ten minutes left.

Goal: Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea (Branislav Ivanovic)

All of Aston Villa's good work is undone in one fell swoop as a defensive mix-up hands Chelsea the lead again. Jores Okore fails to get the ball away from the tenacious Azpilicuieta and the ball roles across the face of the box and comes to Ivanovic who swings a left foot at the ball and it flies into the top corner like a bullet.

Goal: Swansea City 1-1 Sunderland (Ki Sung-Yueng)

Villa have one goal and after an hour at Villa Park it has to be said that they have been the more likely of the two to get a second. Courtois again can't deal with a right-wing corner but the Blues survive with a desperate clearance

City not got going in this second half and they now want a penalty after Alex Bruce fells David Silva but nothing doing from referee Jon Moss.

Goal: Leicester City 0-1 Crystal Palace (Joe Ledley)

Goal: Aston Villa 1-1 Chelsea (Jores Okore)

Ten hours and 59 minutes later, Villa score their first Premier League goal and they are level against leaders Chelsea. A corner from the right is returned from where it came and Gil gets past Oscar before crossing where Okore glances a header into the corner. Remember where you were.

Half time in four of our five 3pm kick-offs in the Premier League and very few goals to speak of. Eden Hazard has Chelsea ahead over Aston Villa and the Blues are at this stage going to extend their lead over Manchester City, with Manuel Pellegrini's side losing by a David Meyler goal at the break the Etihad Stadium. Swansea are trailing to a Jermain Defoe goal against Sunderland, while Leicester-Crystal Palace and QPR-Southampton are both goalless.

Goal: Swansea City 0-1 Sunderland (Jermain Defoe)

Goal: Manchester City 0-1 Hull City (David Meyler)

City lead at the Etihad Stadium, but it's the relegation candidates not the title chasers who have the goal. Jake Livermore's strike hits the post and David Meyler is on hand to tap home from six yards.

Tom Cleverley caught in possession and Chelsea are in for a second, but Guzan saves from Oscar's drive. John Terry's header from the resulting corner is also kept out by the American.

Half chance for Villa, who are without a goal since before Christmas, who leaps above John Terry but he loops his effort over the Chelsea bar.

Hull should be ahead at City and again their threat comes via a set-piece. Elmohamady gets on the end of Brady's cross and he slams his header against the crossbar and the champions survive.

Hull doing all the running at the Etihad Stadium early on. A free-kick from the right is swung in and Kompany diverts a header behind his own goal with Joe Hart glad to see the ball drop wide of his left-hand post.

Goal: Aston Villa 0-1 Chelsea (Eden Hazard)

Given Villa's recent goal record, is that game over already at Villa Park? William feeds Hazard who sweeps into the corner. The Belgian's 13th goal of the season and the league leaders are away.

Under way in all five of our 3pm Premier League kick-offs. Our focus will be on Manchester City v Hull and Aston Villa v Chelsea but we'll have news of all the goals in the top flight as they go in.

Well that is one down but there are still six games to go, with five matches starting in around 10 minutes time including the main title protagonists Chelsea and Manchester City. Team news on the way.

Full time: Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Arsenal

Harry Kane scores twice in the second half as Tottenham complete the turnaround to beat Arsenal and thrust themselves into fourth in the Premier League. The Gunners lost their way after Mesut Ozil gave them the lead but Kane tapped home to equalise before a deft header with four minutes left claimed all three points. Stunningly frenetic derby.

Into four added minutes at White Hart Lane. Can Arsenal get a late equaliser?

Goal: Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Arsenal (Harry Kane)

Four minutes left and the local lad Harry Kane puts Tottenham ahead with a fine head. A cross from the left sees the forward peel away and glance a head back the way it came and across a motionless Ospina. Terrific goal, if it turns out to be the winner.

Chances drying up somewhat for Tottenham in the last 10 minutes but Lamela does wriggle free but skies his effort over. Entering the last 10 minutes. Can either side find a winner? Theo Walcott on for Arsenal meanwhile.

David Ospina is having a storming afternoon and he keeps out Bentaleb again. Kane is having hovering around any scraps, but is once again offside. It's all Spurs in this second half, they've been ferocious.

Arsenal go again at the other end and Danny Welbeck curls towards the back post and Lloris turns the ball behind. From the subsequent corner, Koscielny heads straight at his French counterpart. Some north London derby this and still the thick end of half an hour remaining.

How are Tottenham not ahead? Bentaleb forces a fine save from Ospina and the rebound is just beyond the reach of Kane, who was in an offside position. Arsenal are rattled.

Goal: Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Arsenal (Harry Kane)

Harry Kane celebrates signing a new five-year contract as his first north London derby appearance with the equaliser after 57 minutes. Ospina claws away a flicked on corner and Kane pounces on the rebound and converts from six yards. The onlooking England manager Roy Hodgson can't help but have been impressed.

Lloris turns behind from Cazorla's effort from the edge of the box. Arsenal's first corner doesn't amount to much as they lose the ball on the right. Tottenham so dominant but the scoreline does not reflect their contribution to this match.

Back under way at White Hart Lane. No changes at the break.

Half time: Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Arsenal

Arsenal new guise away from home continues to succeed as they lead Tottenham by an early Mesut Ozil goal. The Gunners have soaked up plenty of pressure from the hosts, but Tottenham are unable to break through with David Ospina keeping out Harry Kane, Danny Rose and Ryan Mason. Plenty in this game.

First yellow card comes after 36 minutes. Harry Kane the guilty part after a lunging challenge on Olivier Giroud. Nine minutes half time and Spurs continue to build up ahead of steam but Arsenal holding firm. Again, it is so far the perfect away performance.

Chances keep coming for Spurs but they're lacking a bit of calmness under pressure. Erik Lamela slams the ball over on the slide, denying Christian Eriksen an effort on goal.

David Ospina makes his third vital save of the first half, keeping out Ryan Mason's left foot curler from 30 yards. Tottenham pressure building but the chances are coming from range.

Arsenal very happy to sit back and soak up the pressure as Tottenham attempt to break through the red wall, while they look over their shoulder, wary of the Gunners counter. Ozil's early goal separates the two sides.

Bentaleb shoots wide to end a lengthy period of possession from Spurs. Replays suggesting that Mesut Ozil might have been marginally offside when he turned home the early opener. Now Danny Rose shoots wide from a tight angle. No idea how that didn't go in. Just wide.

Tottenham attempt to hit straight back. Danny Rose arrives on the edge of the box and fires towards goal, and Ospina makes a fine low save which evades the onrushing hosts' attack. Great start to this derby.

Goal: Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Arsenal (Mesut Ozil)

The Gunners have had little of the ball but they're ahead inside 12 minutes. Danny Welbeck's cut-back is lofted goalwards towards Giroud and Ozil is all alone in the box and he volleys home past Hugo Lloris.

Opportunities at both ends in a frenetic start to the game. Monreal's cross with Arsenal having five in attack evades everyone in the Tottenham box, and Danny Rose eventually gets the ball away. At the other end, Harry Kane curls towards the back post and Ospina makes a fine save to turn the ball around the post.

Under way at White Hart Lane. Olivier Giroud commits the first foul of the game inside two minutes and that signals the start of this north London derby.

Teams in the tunnel at White Hart Lane and we're minutes away from kick-off. If the Merseyside derby is known as the friendly derby, this is anything but on north London. The top four battle and local pride on the line in the early kick-off on this Saturday afternoon. Updates on the way.

As has often been the trend when these two sides meet in the Premier League, they are playing against the backdrop of competing for a Champions League spot. It is already looking like a two from four scenario, with Liverpool and Manchester United the other protagonists. Just two points separate the north London rivals prior to this afternoon's game, so victory for either gives them a major boost.

Nabil Bentaleb returns from the African Cup of Nations and is straight back into the Tottenham first team, with Eric Dier another of the recalls

Arsenal are as expected without Alexis Sanchez but do welcome back Danny Welbeck, as Theo Walcott misses out.


Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris; Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose; Bentaleb, Mason; Lamela, Dembele, Eriksen; Kane.

Arsenal: Ospina; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Coquelin, Ramsey; Welbeck, Cazorla, Ozil; Giroud.

It's derby day in the Premier League, with scores to be settled in both north London and Merseyside, games which are among seven matches in the top flight this afternoon where matters at both the top and the bottom take center stage. Sit back and enjoy.
