4:44: Walcott is straight into the thick of it, drawing another save out of Tom Heaton who has had an excellent game. Moments later, Podolski leaves the cross bar rattling with a typically thunderous effort.

4:38: Couple of changes for Arsenal as Lukas Podolski comes on for Oxlade-Chamberlain while Theo Walcott comes on for Welbeck to make his first appearance since January,

4:35: In a reversal of roles from their first, West Ham are back in this. Valencia pulls his cross back towards the edge of the box where Downing is ready to slam past Begovic. Great comeback from the Hammers.

4:33: Chelsea have their lead back! Eduardo Vargas, having been informed of his defensive responsibilites this afternoon, tries to keep up with Hazard but collides into him just inside the box. The referee points to the spot, and Hazard easily coverts.

Goal! Stoke 2-2 West Ham (Stewart Downing)

4:28: Arsenal hit Burnley with a quick one two. Chambers lifts in an inviting ball from the right that Sanchez meets with a thumping header into the back of the net for the first. Moments later Danny Welbeck's goalbound shot is blocked but Chambers, having provided the first, reacts quickest and slams it home.

4:21: West Ham respond brilliantly to falling two behind, Stewart Downing racing down the right before lifting a fine cross into the box where Valencia slams home with a diving header.

4:18: QPR are back in this! Chelsea haved taken their foot off the pedal somewhat in thie half and have been punished by Charlie Adam who converts with a fine back heel after Leroy Fer's miss hit shot.

4:08: Calum Chambers and Sanchez combine neatly and free Oxlade-Chamberlain in the box, but the England international is crowded out by a posse of Burnley shirts.

4:06: So unlucky for Estaban Cambiasso. Saido Berahino fights his way in from out wide but his cross is thumped clear with a header, but only as far as the veteran Argentine who can only watch as it cannons off his chest and into the back of the net.

Goal! Leicester 0-1 West Brom (Estaban Cambiasso OG)

4:04: And we are back underway for the second half across the county.

3:58: Might want to keep an eye out for Oscar's opener later on this evening.

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

3:45: Approaching half time in our 3pm games. Not too many goals flying in just yet.

3:43: Another good move from Arsenal nearly sees Sanchez give them lead. It;s Cazorla who splits the defence with a sublime pass, finding the Chilean inside the left of the box. He tries to curl it past Tom Heaton but the Burnley keeper does well to block it.

3:38: Just as Everton look to be getting a bit of respite in the injury department, they take another hit. Antolin Alcaraz comes off for Mohamed Besic, with Gareth Barry dropping back into centre half to partner Phil Jagielka.

3:36: It's a right mess in the West Ham box as the ball pin balls off players left right and centre. Victor Moses reacts well to stab the ball into the back of the net.

3:34: It's another oustanding strike from Oscar that has opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge. Cesc Fabregas is at the heart of it again, bursting past two men before finding Oscar just to the right of goal. With sublime technical ability, the Brazilian curls a wonderful strike into the far corner, giving Rob Green no chance.

Goal! Chelsea 1-0 QPR (Oscar, 33)

5:29: Close for Arsenal! Oxlade-Chamberlain does well down the right before swinging a ball into the box but Cazorla can only volley his effort wide. Moments later Welbeck and Gibbs combine neatly but the striker can't get his effort on target.

5:25: Problem for West Ham with Wiston Reid struggling following a mid-air collision with Steven N'Zonzi. James Tomkins comes onto replace him at the heart of defence.

5:20: Everton have Ross Barkley back in the side this afternoon and has helped the Toffees gain the upper hand in the contest, although they are yet to really trouble Fabianski. Gareth Barry is the latest to have a go with a curled effort from distance but it's easily saved.

5:15: Trippier to the rescue for Burnley. Welbeck makes his way into the area before clipping an effort past Heaton, only for it to clip off the Burnley man and go out.

5:11: Two quick-fire chances for Chelsea. Costa anticpates Oscar's run brilliantly and lays the ball off neatly for the Brazilian but he can only scuff his shot wide. Moments later Willian's cross is met by the onrushing Branislav Ivanovic but he can't find the target.

5:06: As you might expect both Chelsea and Arsenal have started in commanding fashion against Burnley and Chelsea. No chances to speak of as yet, however.

5:03: Well, that didn't take long. A wonderful strike from Victor Wanyama has given Saints the lead. Hull 'keeper Jakupovic thumps a ball clear but it falls at the feet of the Kenyan who slams a sublime effort into the top corner from almost 40 yards out.

Goal! Hull 0-1 Southampton (Victor Wanyama, 2)

3:02: And we are off underway across the country.

2:40: And that's it. Newcastle United move up to ninth in the table after a 1-0 win over Brendan Rodgers' side. Liverpool have registered their fourth defeat of the season after 10 games and while they are just two points outside the top four, that is almost certain to change over the next few hours.


Newcastle United 1-0 Liverpool

2:33: Three minutes of time added on. Newcastle look the more likely to score at the minute.

2:30: Balotelli, whose pulled out to the left with Rickie Lambert occupying the space up front, clips a decent cross into the box where he finds Moreno, but the Spaniard gets his volley all wrong.

2:26: Steven Gerrard slips in the middle of the pitch. Oh dear.

2:24: Sissoko is in again for Newcastle! He is found in acres of space down the inside right channel by Cabella and cuts in towards the near post. Perez tries to make himself an option in the box but Sissoko drills it on goal, drawing another good save from Mignolet.

2:20: And it's nearly two! Newcastle break and it's two on one with Perez and Cabella against Lovren! Lovren fails to make any connection with the ball and Perez slides it through to Cabella. One on one with Mignolet, the Frenchman tries to slide it into the bottom corner but the the Liverpool goalkeeper makes a great save with his studs.

2:17: Newcastle lead! Sissoko marches down the left flank before looking to Dummett who has made a great overlapping run towads the byline. Sissoko gets the ball back but his attempted ball across goal is intercepted by Moreno. Or is it? Instead of hoofing it clear, the Spaniard tried to carry the ball out of danger but loses the ball, with substitute Perez waiting behind him to nick the ball away and smash it past Mignolet.

Goal! Newcastle 1-0 Liverpool (Ayoze Perez)

2:13: Great chance for Borini to have an immediate impact but he spurns it. Sterling brilliantly holds off his man and chests a long ball down into the path of the Italian just off to the right of the box. Borini hits it first time but drills it well wide.

2:09: This lifeless game needs a change and there are two from both managers. Fabio Borini comes on for Joe Allen while Remy Cabella replaces Ameboi.

2:05: Ooof, the referee allows play to continue despite a series of robust challenges out on the flank until Janmaat brings it to an end with a cruching foul on Balotelli. Janmaat had no intention of playing the ball there and is shown a yellow card.

2:00: Great save from Krul! Balotelli pulls wide and knocks the ball inside to Gerrard. The skipper clips an inviting ball in towards the near post where Coutinho has made a great run. His thumping header is kept out by Krul, but the offside was up anyway.

1:58: Balotelli has a crack from just outside the area. It's on target, but Krul saves comfortably. There's been no change in this second half really, both sides are lacking any sort of quality but Liverpool in particular have been devoid of any pace.

1:54: Sissoko catches Allen with an ugly challenge from behind. Liverpool have the free kick and despite his plethora of dismal efforts over the last few weeks, Balotelli wins the argument to take it. It's not a bad effort to be fair to him, but Krul follows it all the way and saves.

1:51: Glen Johnson clumsily loses the ball in front of his own goal, allowing Ameobi to break into the box but his slid through ball to Aarons bounces off the back of the youngster's heel and Liverpool can clear.

1:47: And we are back underway for the second half. Here's hoping for some improvement. One change to bring to you, Papiss Cisse is off for Perez.


Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

1:32: Mignolet frightens the life out of Liverpool fans by attempting a Cruyff turn on the edge of his own box but just about get away from it. Newcastle continue to press.

1:31: Sissoko bends it horribly over the bar. Awful effort with no real technique. Largely sums up this half.

1:30: Having said that, Newcastle have a late chance here. Sissoko drives at the Liverpool defence and is clumsily tripped by Skrtel on the edge of the D. Skrtel is booked, and Taylor soon joins him for trying to put off Simon Mignolet I think.

1:28: Final few minutes of this half now. All in all, it's been a rather subdued affair, reflected by the atmosphere around St James' Park. There's been a real lack of quality and as a result, a real lack of chances of goal.

1:26: Close from Skrtel! Liverpool relieve a bit of pressure and force a corner of their own. Gerrard whips it in and Skrtel meets it with a thumping header. He gets the power, but not the direction and his nearpost header is wide.

1:25: Newcastle keep the pressure on witha succession of corners but this time Mignolet is able to claim.

1:23: Glen Johnson clears off the line! Mignolet comes out to claim a corner but woefully misses it. The ball falls to Sissoko who lashes a shot through a cluster of players but Johnson is well placed to nod it away.

1:21: Abeid takes the free kick but the wall does its job and charges it down. The resulting corner is a poor one but Gerrard's clearance only finds Ameobi on the edge of the box. The shot however, is downright awful and flies into the stands.

1:19: Aarons brings the crowd out of their seats with a driving run past Gerrard, but is felled after he is sandwiched between the Reds skipper and Coutinho. Newcastle free kick about 25 yards out from goal.

1:16: Ameobi can't bring the ball under control and catches two Liverpool players in his attempts to win the ball back, but wins a warm round of applause for his efforts anyway.

1:12: Big blow for Newcastle. On another rampaging run down the flank Obertan has pulled up clutching his thigh. The physio is on but there'sno way the Frenchman will be able to continue and teenager Rolando Aarons comes onto replace him.

1:09: The corner comes back out to Colback who launches it back into the box but Steven Taylor is called up for a foul.

1:07: Ameobi threads a ball down the inside left channel past Johnson, forcing Srktel again to come across and force the corner.

1:05: Moreno hasn't spent much of this half in his own area. Sometimes, it's nearly paid off, such as a few moments ago when the Spaniard's ball into the box nearly found Coutinho. But moments later Obertan once again threatened to get in behind him, something he's done a few times already today.

1:01: Moreno clips a ball into the box looking for the onrushing run of Gerrard but Newcastle clear. Coutinho can't bring the loose ball down and Balotelli clumsily clips Paul Dummett to give Newcastle the free kick.

12:57: Not a peep out of Raheem Sterling so far in this opening 10 minutes. Gerrard looks to find Balotelli in space down the right but absolutely pings the ball at him and the Italian can't bring it under control.

12:55: Penalty shout for Newcastle! Obertan does brilliantly down the right, skipping past Moreno before evading the challenge of Lovren who came rushing over to help. The Frenchman reaches the byline and cuts the ball back to Sissoko who goes down under the challenge of Skrtel. Was their contact? Not according to the referee.

12:51: It's a rather peculiar starting formation from Brendan Rodgers. Mario Balotelli appears rto be hugging the right touchline while Johnson, Skrtel and Lovren make up a back three.

12:49: From the throw in Obertan is found and swings a decent ball into the box. He falls nicely to Cisse who powers an effort on goal that is deflected just wide! Close from the home side and they have the corner, but nothing comes from it.

12:47: Samme Ameboi wins a 50-50 challenge with Steven Gerrard down the inside left channel, allowing the Newcastle man to scamper inside. Skrtel comes to cover and knocks the ball away for a throw in.

12:45: And Liverpool get us underway at St James' Park.

12:34: Despite praise from his manager during the week, Fabio Borini starts this afternoon's game starting on the bench.

12:25: A draw away to Swansea, a win at home to Leicester followed by last week's triumph at White Hart Lane have helped lift the dark cloud over St James' Park. Newcastle are still only two points above the relegation zone in 14th however, but with a bit of momentum building, Pardew's job is once again safe. For now.


Newcastle: Krul, Janmaat, S.Taylor, Coloccini, Dummett, Sissoko, Abeid, Colback, Obertan, Cisse, Ameobi

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Moreno, Lovren, Skrtel, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Coutinho, Sterling, Balotelli

TEAM NEWS - Liverpool: Mario Balotelli returns to lead the line. Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho are also back in the team after being rested against Swansea.

TEAM NEWS - Newcastle: Mehdi Abeid gets his first league start for Newcastle after an impressive performance mid-week against Manchester City. Sammi Ameboi leads the line after his impact against Tottenham.

12:00: The Manchester derby may be dominating the agenda this weekend, but Saturday has seven tasy-looking fixtures to whet your appetite. A fixture that provokes memories of goal-laden exchanges of the 90s gets us started as Newcastle United and Liverpool clash. After beating Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City away from home, a win in front of the St James' Park crowd who were baying for his blood not so long ago would tie up a fairly decent week for Alan Pardew and his Newcastle side.

Arsenal meanwhile secured what was only their third win of the Premier League campaign away to Sunderland last week but the visit of Burnley will provide them will ample opportunity to continue their climb up the table after a rocky start.

And a west London derby between Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers could provide Diego Costa to resume his rampant assault on the Premier League after being passed fit by Jose Mourinho on Friday.

Here are today's fixtures in full:

Newcastle v Liverpool

Arsenal v Burnley

Chelsea v QPR

Hull v Southampton

Everton v Swansea

Stoke v West Ham

Leicester v West Brom
