6:00: Newcastle draw level. Gouffran chases down a hopeful ball being marshalled by Clyne as Fonte slides across to clear, but he only manages to thump it against the Frenchman's thigh which sends the ball bouncing into the back of the net!

Goal! Newcastle 1-1 Southampton (Yoann Gouffran)

5:45: Southampton have the lead! Pelle outjumps Collocini and chests the ball down to Tadic who slides an excellent ball into the path of Elia. The Dutchman has time and space in the box and tucks one underneath his countryman Krul, who will feel he could have done better with that.

Goal! Newcastle 0-1 Southampton (Eljero Elia)

5:30: And we are underway at St James' Park.

5:10: That's it. Chelsea are back to their sublime best after hammering Swansea City while the Alan Pardew Effect continues at Crystal Palace, who came from 2-0 down to beat Burnley 3-2.

Manchester United were unconvincing yet again in their 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers but the sight of Louis van Gaal abandoning his tired 3-5-2 formation - prompting United to take the lead - could be promising for frustrated supporters.

Goal! Burnley 2-3 Crystal Palace (Dwight Gayle)

4:40: Chelsea's rout continues. Ivanovic tears down the right and clips a ball in for Oscar to prod home his hat-trick, only for Schurrle to jump in and take the chance! Oscar doesn't look to pleased.

4:39: Liverpool look to have wrapped things up at Villa Park with Lambert adding a second with a fine strike from just inside the area.

Goal! Swansea 0-5 Chelsea (Andre Schurrle)

Goal! Aston Villa 0-2 Liverpool (Rickie Lambert)

4:35: Nearly a carbon copy of that previous chance, Wilson lifts another ball into Falcao but there's too much pace on the ball and is diving header is in vain.

4:34: Another chance passed up by Falcao! Blind plays a sumptuous pass down the inside right for Wilson who drills a cross across goal. Falcao's movement is excellent but he is unable to get any contact on the ball to knock it into the goal. Steven Caulker may have got a nick on that which put the Colombian off.

4:31: QPR should be level! Carrick and Rojo leave the ball for each other allowing Vargas to race through on a counter which is three on two QPR's favour! The Chilean ignores Zamora and cuts inside but is robbed of the ball and United survive.

4:26: Aston Villa miss a great chance to draw level! Liverpool's defence is all over the place, allowing Christian Benteke to head the ball down to Nathan Baker, but he can't connect and Liverpool scramble clear.

4:22: Bojan again provides a moment of inspiration, picking the ball up on the edge of the area, spinning past his man before arrowing one into the bottom corner.

4:19: Those changes from van Gaal have seen United revert to what looks like a 4-4-2 with James Wilson and Falcao up top.

4:16: United have their breakthrough! Rooney slips a neat ball down the inside right channel for Valencia to chase and his cut back into the six yard area is perfect for Fellaini to lash home.

Goal! QPR 0-1 Manchester United (Marouane Fellaini)

4:14: Another change for United, James Wilson comes onto replace Jonny Evans. Does that mean a back four for United? We will see.

4:12: Green makes a great save to deny Falcao! Di Maria pulls out to the right, picks up the ball and swings a sublime cross into the box. Falcao peels away from his marker and tries to nod across goal but is denied by the QPR goalkeeper.

4:08: Borini hits the post! Skrtel nods down a corner swung into the box towards the Italian who doesn't get the right connection on the ball, bit still forces Guzan to stretch and palm it onto the woodwork.

Aston Villa 0-1 Liverpool

Leicester City 0-0 Stoke City

Burnley 2-1 Crystal Palace

Tottenham 1-1 Sunderland

Swansea 0-4 Chelsea

QPR 0-0 Manchester United

3:44: For some reason, Phil Jones is taking corners for United this afternoon. From both sides.

3:41: Di Maria drops deep, plays a neat one two and bursts into the box before earning a corner. It's probably his best moment of the day, the Argentine has struggled playing with his back to goal with him and Rooney again playing in each other's natural positions.

3:40: Chelsea are done before half time. A poor back pass to Fabianski is pounced upon by Costa who shows no mercy in adding his second of the game. Moments later, Oscar drives into the box, plays a neat one two with Spaniard before dinking a sublime little effort into the back of the net.

Goal! Swansea 0-4 Chelsea (Oscar)

Goal! Swansea 0-3 Chelsea (Diego Costa)

3:34: Who said Larsson can't score free kicks anymore? He's just curled a beauty into the top corner from 25 yards out after Jermain Defoe was felled by Vertonghen. Tremendous goal.

Goal! Tottenham 1-1 Sunderland (Seb Larsson)

3:30: De Gea saves United again! United prod the ball about in front of goal posing no real threat until a stray ball from Jones sees them lose possession. QPR waste no time and lump the ball to Austin who lashes an excellent half volley towards the top corner, only for the Spaniard to save.

3:28: Palace pull one back! Wilfried Zaha slams a cross in from the right that is half cleared by Trippier, but Gayle is well placed to lash home.

Goal! Burnley 2-1 Crystal Palace (Dwight Gayle)

3:27: Wayne Rooney is furious with referee Neil Swarbrick for not awarding United a penalty. The replay suggests he has a point; Mata again whips an inviting ball in from deep with Rooney chasing, but Joey Barton steps across to block off his run with no intention of winning the ball himself.

3:25: Jordan Henderson does well out on the right to whip an excellent cross in where Borini is stretching to prod home from close range.

Goal! Aston Villa 0-1 Liverpool (Fabio Borini)

3:22: Chelsea have been outstanding in these opening 20 minutes and have a deserved second. Neat, one touch passing involving Fabregas, Oscar and Willian springs Costa clear, who makes no mistake in finding the back of the net.

Goal! Swansea 0-2 Chelsea (Diego Costa)

3:20: Jonny Evans gives the ball away and Zamora frees Austin down the inside right channel. The lashes a shot across goal but De Gea does well to push it away from goal.

3:18: Alberto Moreno thinks he has put Liverpool ahead at Villa Park but his effort is chalked off for offside. That;s the only action of note so far, it's been a fairly tame opening.

3:16: Awful start for Palace and Alan Pardew. they are two down in no time here. Joel Ward is robbed off possesssion and Burnley quickly spring Ings free, who calmly slots past Speroni.

Goal! Burnley 2-0 Crystal Palace (Danny Ings)

3:13: Green denies Falcao! Mata picks out his teammate with a brilliant ball into the box but after a good first touch, he can only drive it into the QPR goalkeeper who forces the rebound out for a corner.

3:11: Burnley lead! Kieran Trippier's corner beats everyone in a Palace shirt, including Speroni who fails to claim, allowing Mee to nod home from close range.

Goal! Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace (Ben Mee)

3:07: Bobby Zamora just tried to beat David de Gea from 50 yards out. This is not a drill.

3:06: Very sloppy start again from United with Phil Jones and Juan Mata giving the ball away in quick succession. Di Maria looks to have started in a very advanced position again today, where he proved to be so ineffective against Southampton.

3:04: Spurs also have the lead! Jan Vertonghen takes a shot and it takes a huge deflection off Jon O'Shea to beat Pantilimon in the Sunderland goal.

Goal! Tottenham 1-0 Sunderland (Jan Vertonghen)

3:01: Chelsea have the lead inside a minute at the Liberty Stadium! Oscar picks the ball up on the edge of the box following a stray pass from Sigurdsson and drives an excellent effort into the back of the net.

Goal! Swansea 0-1 Chelsea (Oscar)

2:55: It's nearly time for kick off, teams across the country are making their way out onto the pitch.

2:45: There's been a bit of snow up at Burnley overnight but nothing for the club to get worried about.

2:33: Jermain Defoe has already been back in north London since jetting in from Toronto, having trained with Spurs at the start of the year. They will be hoping their former player doesn't come back to haunt them this afternoon but Defoe's remarkable record of having scored on his debut for his past five clubs suggest that is a real possibility.

2:30: Has Louis van Gaal opted for a back four this afternoon? Jonny Evans and Phil Jones starting with Marcos Rojo and Antonio Valencia either side of them suggests so, buy Daley Blind could also be shifted over to the left to occupy the wing back role.
