Full-time: Chelsea 3-0 Burnley and Watford 1-3 Arsenal

Two of the title favourites have recorded comprehensive wins, then. And in all honesty, it was a stroll in the park for Chelsea and Arsenal this afternoon.

You can follow the evening fixture here now. Goodbye!

GOAL: Crystal Palace 1-1 Bournemouth (Dann)

The Eagles have done it! There's the equaliser their play deserves, with Scott Dann scoring with a super header from Puncheon's cross. What a dramatic finish.


GOAL: Chelsea 3-0 Burnley (Moses)

The Blues' dominance is underlined by a third from Victor Moses, who slides home a pass from Pedro. That's his first Premier League goal for Chelsea since November 2012.

That really was a huge moment for Jay Rodriguez. He has scored his first Premier League goal since March 2014.

Tick-tock, tick-tock... time is running out in the 3pm kick-offs...

GOAL: Southampton 2-1 Sunderland (Rodriguez)

St Mary's is brought to its feet by Jay Rodriguez, whose shot slips under the keeper and into the net. Will that change the Saints' plan to loan him out?


GOAL: Leicester 2-1 Swansea (Fer)

We're set for a grand-stand finish at the King Power Stadium! Leroy Fer finds the net with a cracker and there are more than five minutes remaining.

Hold onto your hats!

GOAL: Southampton 0-1 Sunderland (Defoe)

We've barely spoken about this game all afternoon. It has been a little bit of a snoozefest, but Jermain Defoe has woken everyone up now. The former England man has given the Mackems the lead from the spot.

David Moyes will be a relieved man, I fancy. That all came from a foul committed by Jose Fonte.

Can Watford find another goal to give Arsenal a nervous last ten minutes? In truth, they have been a distant second-best for much of the afternoon but you never ever know...

Palace are knocking on the door down at Selhurst Park but they're still to find a deserved equaliser. Zaha has been introduced to the action, too, and he has received a great ovation from the home fans amid talk of a move to Spurs.

Chelsea come close again. On this occasion, Tom Heaton's parry from Eden Hazard's shot nearly runs for Diego Costa. Not quite, though.

I can barely believe it's only 2-0 to the Blues, who have dominated throughout.

It's been a pretty dramatic afternoon in the Premier League so far and there's still more than 20 minutes to play. It could all change again, still.

GOAL: Watford 1-3 Arsenal (Pereyra)

Are the Hornets back in this one? Probably not, but it's a well taken debut goal for the ex-Juventus man. Pereyra slammed it home after Arsenal failed to clear the ball properly.

A penalty to the Foxes now ... but Fabianski saves Riyad Mahrez's kick and Okazaki's follow-up. A glimmer of hopes for Swansea, perhaps. I wouldn't bank on it, though.


GOAL: Swansea 0-2 Leicester City (Morgan)

The captain makes it 2-0 from eight yards with a well taken volley. The champions appear to be on their way to winning three points now.


GOAL: Everton 1-0 Stoke (Baines)

The Toffees are awarded a controversial penalty for an alleged trip on Ashley Williams.

Leighton Baines takes the spotkick which rebounds back off the post onto the goalkeeper and into the net. It was lucky on two fronts, that.

Unsurprisingly, perhaps, Watford have made a change: Roberto Pereyra is on for the hosts, replacing Adlene Guedioura.

We're back under way in our 3pm games.


GOAL: Watford 3-0 Arsenal (Ozil)

An emphatic response to their critics from Arsenal, this. Their latest goalscorer is Mesut Ozil, who secures the three points with a simple header.

This game is done and dusted before half-time.


GOAL: Chelsea 2-0 Burnley (Willian)

Whatever Arsenal can do, Chelsea can do too. It's Willian for the Blues on this occasion, as he drills a low shot into the corner of the net.

It's already looking like an impossible task for Burnley at the Bridge.


GOAL: Watford 0-2 Arsenal (Sanchez)

The false nine makes it 2-0 for the Gunners and Arsenal are in cruise control now! This time, the silky Chilean converts Walcott's cross with a clever finish at the far post.

Arsene Wenger will be breathing a little easier now, I fancy.

It's been a lively start in the 3pm kick-offs, then, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City all leading in their matches.

It's still goalless in the other games around the Premier League, with five minutes to go until half-time.


Arsenal almost make it 2-0 at Vicarage Road. Sanchez and Ozil combine before the Chilean lets fly from distance. Gomes just stops the ball with his legs, but that's another warning for the Hornets.

Vardy hadn't scored in the Premier League this season before today but he took that goal in typically impressive style. He's back.


GOAL: Leicester 1-0 Swansea (Vardy)

The ball is sent over the top and you-know-who is there. Jamie Vardy scores off the inside of the post.

That's his 50th league career goal - and he'll be thrilled to have broken his duck.
