A timely albeit narrow win for Liverpool that should begin to ease speculation regarding the future of Rodgers.

Tim Sherwood's Aston Villa rise above Hull and Newcastle to 14th following their latest win, while Sunderland remain in the relegation zone behind in-form Leicester by a point but keep the pressure on the five teams above them heading into the final stretch.

Swansea remain in eighth, but Stoke drop to 10th following defeat in South Wales and West Ham's narrow win over Burnley, who are now eight points adrift of safety. QPR's gap to the promised land of 17th-place is seven and it looks like both sides are set for an imminent return to the Championship.

That's it for this particular live blog, but join us here for live coverage of Manchester United v West Brom from Old Trafford.

Second-half action now underway.

Can Liverpool extend their lead over QPR or will Chris Ramsey's side find an equaliser to heap the pressure on Brendan Rodgers?

Sunderland will hope to find a winner to keep the pressure on the likes of Newcastle, Leicester and Aston Villa in the fight against relegation while the latter appear to be cruising in their efforts to halt Everton's good recent run.

Burnley are trailing at West Ham and having gone down to 10 men, it will take a big effort for the bottom club if they are to overturn that one-goal deficit.

Swansea v Stoke, meanwhile, is the proverbial dead rubber and there were preciously little highlights from the first half at the Liberty Stadium.
