That is all from me for now, but stay tuned to IBTimes UK for post-match reaction from today's lunchtime clash between Swansea and Liverpool.

Myself and Tony Mogan will also be back tomorrow to bring you coverage of another bumper afternoon of Premier League football, with Manchester United vs Stoke, Tottenham vs Manchester City, Leicester vs Southampton and Burnley vs Arsenal all on the agenda.

You can also join sport editor Nick Howson at Hazeltine in Chaska, Minnesota for live updates from day two of the Ryder Cup.



So a comfortable victory for Chelsea, who were far and away the better side after half-time. They will face much tougher tests than this throughout the season, but it will nevertheless be a relief for Conte to halt that winless run and see his side claim a clean sheet after their recent defensive lapses.

West Ham avoid defeat thanks to a wonderful goal from Payet, but fans will remain concerned with only one league win to shout about so far this season. Still no top-flight victories for Moyes at Sunderland, but, like their fellow strugglers, they just about manage to avoid another demoralising loss.

The spoils shared at Vicarage Road after an enthralling second half.


Full-time scores

Hull 0-2 Chelsea

Sunderland 1-1 West Brom

Watford 2-2 Bournemouth

West Ham 1-1 Middlesbrough


Four minutes of stoppage time to be played at Hull. Oscar and Pedro, on for Hazard and Moses, have both had good opportunities to extend that comfortable Chelsea lead. Courtois was also called into action to deal with a hopeful shot from Huddlestone.

Nathaniel Chalobah is on for his Premier League debut. At last!


Sunderland look to have avoided a fourth straight league defeat after substitute Van Aanholt finishes from Duncan Watmore's cross.

A reminder that the Black Cats led Crystal Palace 2-0 at the Stadium of the Light last weekend, only to lose 3-2 in the dying seconds...

Goal: Sunderland 1-1 West Brom (Patrick van Aanholt)


Robertson brings down the impressive Moses right on the corner of the penalty area. Willian's free-kick reaches Costa at the back post, but his ensuring strike is wild and well over.


Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere strikes the post for Bournemouth before being replaced by Dan Gosling. His long wait to complete a full 90 minutes of football continues.


Chelsea are opening Hull up at will now and Willian is denied a penalty following a robust challenge from Davies.

Phelan has sent on both Shaun Maloney and Hernandez in this second half, but it would take something truly special for them to salvage anything from this game now.


What a game we have developing at Vicarage Road. King scores just seconds after coming on for Bournemouth, but within two minutes Watford equalise once again thanks to a header from wonderfully named substitute Success.

After a lacklustre start to the afternoon, it is now absolutely raining goals.

At the KCOM, Hull continue to struggle after a promising first half and allow Matic the freedom of Yorkshire to stride into the penalty area. His initial shot ricochets off Davies to Costa, who strokes home his sixth goal of the season at the first time of asking.

Finally something for West Ham fans to cheer at the Olympic Stadium. Payet draws Bilic's side level with 'Boro courtesy of a typically impressive skillful solo goal.

It's all very messy from Hull in midfield and they concede possession far too cheaply as Robertson's header goes astray after a risky cross-field pass.

There then follows a couple of weak missed tackles on Costa before Willian is allowed to cut inside onto his right foot and bend a terrific shot into the top corner.

Kante releases Costa, who easily rounds the recklessly impulsive Marshall only to see his goal-bound effort deflected against the post by Livermore.

Kante then blasts the rebound into the stands. He should have done much better there.


All square at Vicarage Road. Captain Deeney has notched his 99th goal for Watford after dispatching a cutback from Nordin Amrabat.


Yet more misery for West Ham at their unpopular new home. Middlesbrough take the lead after Stuani's header from a Stewart Downing corner is adjudged to have crossed the line before Mark Noble can clear.

Goal: Watford 1-1 Bournemouth (Troy Deeney)


N'Golo Kante is the latest Chelsea player to have a shot saved by Marshall during the early stages of this second half.

A stoppage in play now as Meyler receives some treatment. Hull cannot afford to lose anymore defenders with Michael Dawson, Moses Odubajo and Alex Bruce all still sidelined along with goalkeeper Allan McGregor.
