7:21pm: And that's a wrap! A disappointing game for Chelsea, but Sunderland will be happy to not only have taken a point, but looking dangerous against the title favourites on many occasions. That's a wrap on all the Saturday Premier League action, but come back tomorrow for all the latest on Southampton v Manchester City and Tottenham v Everton. Cheers!

7:19pm: Two minutes added time - it's not much, and Chelsea have a lot of strikers on the pitch... can Sunderland do the unthinkable?

7:15pm: Sunderland almost hit the post again through Adam Johnson, they're looking more likely to score at the moment.

7:12pm: Andre Schurrle is now coming on for Willian - Mourinho is throwing everything he's got at Sunderland's defence.

7:05pm: Remy and Drogba are on for Chelsea as Mourinho looks for a late winner. Three points would give them a nine point advantage at the top of the table. Meanwhile Costa is off and safe from a possible red card.

7:01pm: Chelsea are having to protect their net as well, with Courtois saving a super shot from Connor Wickham who has been brilliant today.

6:57pm: Coming into the last 20 minutes and Chelsea need to change things up if they want to get three points out of this. They've had five shots on target but can't find a way through Pantilimon at present.

6:51pm: Sunderland are still getting in the way of any flow Chelsea are trying to create at the moment.

6:49pm: Jozy Altidore and Jordi Gomez replace Rodwell and Fletcher for Sunderland.

6:42pm: Costa's temper hasn't calmed in this half and he's booked for an elbow in Wes Brown's face. He could already be off for a kick at O'Shae, and this could have been a red as well. He'll still miss the next game against Spurs over it.

6:40pm: Chelsea have built on their chances, with Willian missing an attempt and Oscar having a shot blocked. Still nothing in the net yet!

6:37pm: Chelsea still aren't breaking through Sunderland's defence despite continuing to dominate possession. Sunderland have been able to frustrate a host of teams this way during the season - whether they can hold this against the title favourites for another 40 minutes remains to be seen.

6:34pm: And we're back! It was an exciting first half at the Stadium of Light, will the second bring the goals? Stay tuned and find out!

6:17pm: And that's a wrap on the first half.

6:15pm: Costa you naughty boy! He kicks out O'Shae and is lucky to get away without any booking. it comes on the back of a rough tackle by the Sunderland man on Costa - no love lost here.

6:10pm: Chelsea have had 12 shots on goal now compared to Sunderland's 4 - 2 of the Blues' have been on target and normally that's enough to give them at least a goal. The hosts are holding out well though, for now...

6:04pm: SAVE! Ivanovic has a shot from close range and Pantilimon saves it with his legs - very good work there by the Sunderland keeper.

6:02pm: Controversy in the dugout! Gus Poyet's assistant Mauricio Taricco is sent into the stands for saying something the referee didn't like.

6:02pm: Thibaut Courtois is forced into action by Connor Wickham again and the Sunderland man might just be their best hope of a win today - he's putting in a very positive performance so far.

5:56pm: Nemanja Matic has a shot but it's blocked - Sunderland are holding their defence very well at the moment, with Cesc Fabregas having an attack stopped by Jon O'Shae earlier as well.

5:50pm: Willian hits the post for Chelsea as they counter attack - they're looking almost lethal very early on. A following corner comes to nothing for the side though as Terry fails to find anyone in the box.

5:47pm: Chelsea aren't going to have their way completely tonight, but they're still dominating possession as they hold the ball in the midfield.

5:40pm: Sunderland are edging their way back into the game and despite having only 35% of possession they have as many chances on goal as Chelsea now thanks to Connor Wickham, who has a shot but it's over the bar.

5:37pm: It's all Fabregas and Chelsea at the moment but he's unable to find a player in the final third.

5:34pm: Not a great deal to report at the moment as both teams settle into their grooves...

5:30pm: And we're off!

5:28pm: It's minutes until kick-off and it's fair to say Chelsea are overwhelming favourites against Sunderland tonight. Can the hosts cause an upset though?

4:53pm: And the games are wrapping up now, with Liverpool, United, QPR and West Ham coming out winners while Aston Villa and Burnley, and Swansea and Crystal Palace, have to settle for a draw. Stay tuned for later when Chelsea take on Sunderland in a match that could save one side from the relegation danger or increase another's lead in their title charge.

4:43pm: GOAL! Burnley equalise with Aston Villa thanks to Danny Ings. Game on!

4:42pm: GOAL! Liverpool find a goal after pushing hard in this half through Glen Johnson.

4:41pm: PENALTY - Lukas Jutkiewicz is fouled by Jores Okore in the box and Danny Ings will take the shot from the spot.

4:40pm: Down to the final 10 minutes - who can steal a winner?

4:37pm: Some team news from the Stadium of Light:

Sunderland XI: Pantilimon, Vergini, Reveillere, Brown, O'Shea (c), Larsson, Johnson, Cattermole, Rodwell, Wickham, Fletcher.

Chelsea XI: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa

4:33pm: RED CARD - Moussa Sissoko is off for Newcastle after receiving two yellow cards, and the day gets worse for them as they go down to 10 men.

4:32pm: GOAL! QPR are in favour with a 3-2 lead over Leicester as Charlie Austin puts them ahead.

4:24pm: GOAL! Leicester find their equaliser! There's been 36 shots on goal between them and QPR today and the scoreline now reads 2-2 thanks to Jeffrey Schlupp.

4:23pm: GOAL! United are up 3-0 against Hull and Robin van Persie's goalless run is broken! Hull have certainly made it easy for them but the Red Devils look to have sealed three points now.

4:17pm: A goal looks to be coming at Liverpool and Bojan hits the post for Stoke.

4:13pm: GOAL! Aaron Cresswell puts West Ham ahead against Newcastle.

4:11pm: QPR v Leicester is turning out to be the game of the weekend! James Vardy hits the bar for the visitors as they push hard for an equaliser.

4:05pm: And we're back!

3:48pm: Half time is ringing around England (and Wales) and Manchester United and QPR are the only sides to hold leads in the Saturday afternoon fixtures so far.

3:44pm: GOAL! QPR are in front as Leroy Fer puts them ahead of Leicester.

3:41pm: GOAL! Wayne Rooney doubles United's lead against Hull and the score is now 2-0.

3:39pm: GOAL! Aston Villa go up 1-0 against Burnley thanks to Joe Cole.

3:38pm: GOAL! QPR equalise but not by their own doing, with Leicester's Wes Morgan scoring an own goal.

3:36pm: It's also pretty highlight-less over at West Ham with one shot on target for the hosts. Newcastle are yet to put in any dangerous attacks as yet.

3:34pm: If you're wondering what's happening at Anfield right now, don't bother - it's really not a lot. Neither side has had a shot on target and that's about it for now.

3:26pm: GOAL! Mile Jedinak scores for Palace from the spot and the scores are back to level.

3:24pm: PENALTY - Crystal Palace have a penalty against Swansea after Chamakh is fouled by Jonjo Shelvey .

3:17pm: GOAL! Manchester United recover quickly from news of Di Maria's injury with Chris Smalling - yes you heard right - putting them in front of Hull 1-0 with a close range shot. Goal line technology said it was in and they have a big advantage now.

3:15pm: GOAL! Swansea go up 1-0 against Crystal Palace thanks to Bony, who uses some creativity against the Crystal Palace defence to find space and have a shot on target.

3:14pm: And he's off, with Herrera on in his place. The injuries are building for United, and Louis Van Gaal will have to rethink his tactics for Hull now.

3:11pm: It's very bad news at Old Trafford as Angel Di Maria holds his hamstring - could this be an injury? He hasn't come off yet but it's looking likely...

3:04pm: GOAL! Leicester's Esteban Cambiaso is the first to score in the 3pm kick-offs and puts his side ahead of QPR 1-0.

3:00pm: And we have kick-off!

2:55pm: Now then - five minutes until kick-off with six lots of three pointers up for grabs.

2:36pm: And that's a wrap - Arsenal finish what was a game rather devoid of highlights with three points and the pressure will ease at least a little on Arsene Wenger for now. Stay tuned for all the action later on as Manchester United and Liverpool join the action.

2:33pm: Four minutes of added time - can Arsenal hold on? At the moment it could go either way...

2:26pm: West Brom's Cristian Gamboa receives a yellow card for a foul but the side are looking good right now and building up their shots on goal.

2:24pm: OOOOOHHH that was a close call!! West Brom hit the bar with Berahino's header and the scores stay 1-0 for now...

2:20pm: Olivier Giroud - who got in the mix today but was ultimately disappointing - is off for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

2:16pm: Back to the Hawthorns and Kieran Gibbs and Sébastien Pocognoli have both caused delays in the match with injury problems but both are playing on for now. West Brom hasn't offered much in the way of an equaliser yet - still no shots on target.

2:15pm: Last of the team news for the 15:00 kick offs with West Ham v Newcastle:

West Ham XI vs. Newcastle: Adrian; Jenkinson, Cresswell, Tomkins, Collins; Noble, Kouyate, Downing, Amalfitano, Jarvis; Carroll.

Newcastle XI vs West Ham: Elliot; Janmaat, Williamson, Dummett, Haidara; Sissoko, Tiote, Colback; Gouffran, Perez, Ameobi.

2:14pm: Interesting stat from Squawka on Danny Welbeck, who departed United after he failed to impress Louis Van Gaal:

Wayne Rooney (4) is the only Manchester United player to have scored more Premier League goals than Danny Welbeck (3) this season.

2:12pm: For Burnley v Aston Villa:

Burnley XI vs. Aston Villa: Heaton; Trippier, Shackell (c), Keane, Ward; Kightly, Marney, Jones, Boyd; Barnes, Ings.

2:11pm: Team line-ups for Liverpool v Stoke are as follows:

Liverpool XI vs. Stoke: Mignolet; Johnson, Enrique, Skrtel, Toure; Lucas, Allen, Henderson; Coutinho, Sterling, Lambert.

Stoke XI vs. Liverpool: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters; Nzonzi, Sidwell; Arnautovic, Bojan, Walters; Diouf.

2:06pm: While Arsenal look to hold on for the win, here's some team news from Manchester United and Hull, with Marcos Rojo starting for the hosts:

Man Utd XI vs. Hull City: De Gea; Smalling, Carrick, Rojo, Valencia; Fellaini, Mata, Di Maria, Young; Rooney, van Persie.

Hull City XI vs. Man Utd: McGregor; Chester; Davies, Dawson, Robertson; Livermore, Diame, Elmohamady, Ben Arfa; Jelavic, Brady.

2:02pm: GOAL! Danny Welbeck scores to put Arsenal in the winning position, though Foster looked to contribute to that saveable goal. Arsenal have 15 shots on goal and 5 on target and they finally make one count with the former United man heading the ball in from the centre of the box. Will this open things up a bit?

2:00pm: The shots on goal are building for West Brom to a massive... 1. They are looking more alive in front of goal than last half but it's becoming more end-to-end football as the Gunners have a shot through Per Mertesacker as well.

1:55pm: Yellow card is handed to Graham Dorrans for tugging Kieran Gibbs' shirt.

1:52pm: West Brom are looking a bit more spritely now as they attack with intent but still aren't looking dangerous in front of Martinez.

1:47pm: And we're back! And hoping for some more action in this half...

1:31pm: And that's a wrap on the first half.

1:28pm: Goal for West Brom! No it isn't as the flag goes up and it's ruled offside. It was the correct decision too as Brunt put the ball in the net after Martinez fumbled with it.

1:24pm: A comforting stat for West Brom fans via OptaJoe,

9 - Nine of Saido Berahino's last 10 competitive goals for West Bromwich Albion have come at the Hawthorns. Comforts.

1:22pm: That's seven shots now for the Gunners and possession is swinging back in their favour and very close to 50/50. Their last game against Manchester United saw them boasting 23 shots on goal to the opposition's 12 - but they lost 2-1. Can they make their shots count today?

1:18pm: Six shots on goal now for Arsenal compared to zero for West Brom but Brunt mounts a bit of an attack for the hosts which is easily collected by Martinez.

1:14pm: Sanchez and Welbeck are peppering the Arsenal goal right now but Foster is staying strong against Arsenal's attackers. He looks to be slightly frustrated with West Brom's defenders - can the Gunners take advantage of this?

1:07pm: That injury to Monreal has gotten too much and he's off, with Kieran Gibbs on in his place.

1:01pm: It hasn't been the most interesting first half so far but Arsenal look good on the counter attack. West Brom have started well and Alan Irvine will be pleased with their efforts at half time if they keep the score at 0-0.

12:57pm: Welbeck is getting in on the action now! He helps set up a shot for Santi Cazorla but it's blocked - so far West Brom are surviving Arsenal's attempts, and their domination in possession - currently at 69% - is helping this. Meanwhile Nacho Monreal looks to be in some injury trouble but he's playing on for now.

12:53pm: Make that two shots on target for Arsenal as Aaron Ramsey finds Alexis Sanchez, who fires the ball straight into the centre of goal. The Gunners are looking far more dangerous at the moment.

12:48pm: Arsenal are attacking early with Santi Cazorla putting West Brom's keeper to work within just a few minutes. It's on target too.

12:45pm: And we're off!

12:40pm: Just minutes until kick-off as the players prepare for what will be a tough game. Can Arsenal display the mental strength that has been lacking recently? Can West Brom take advantage of their lull in form? Questions to be answered in the next two hours...

12:35pm: While still sticking to his 'it's difficult to buy what we need' line, Wenger gave a hint this week of entering into the January transfer market to purchase some defensive back-up. He told reporters:

I would like to remind you that to buy football players is not to go into a supermarket and just say: 'I want to buy a right-back or a centre-back. It's to find the right quality. If you go out tomorrow, you will see that everybody looks for the same positions everywhere. It's not as simple as it looks.

"In January, it is even more difficult because players are even less available than in June or July. But we will try to be creative and have one or two good ideas.

12:30pm: Are Liverpool more desperate to turn their season around than Arsenal? The side take on Stoke later and with Brendan Rodgers also under pressure his team choices will no doubt be interesting. United are another side hoping to build on some positive results before the end of the year and they face Hull today. Later, Sunderland take on Chelsea and will be hoping for a serious upset against the title favourites.

12:25pm: Arsenal are currently eighth in the table and have won just twice in their last seven matches. It would be fair to say Arsene Wenger is under some pressure at the moment and the manager will be keen to quieten his critics with a win against West Brom today. Meanwhile, the hosts have also struggled in their last two games and a win would catapult them into contention for a top 10 place in the table.

12:20pm: Team line-ups for West Brom and Arsenal today are as follows:

West Brom XI: Foster, Wisdom, Lescott, Dawson, Pocognoli, Gardner, Mulumbu, Brunt, Dorrans, Sessegnon, Berahino.

Arsenal XI: Martinez, Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Welbeck, Alexis, Cazorla, Giroud.

12:15pm: Good afternoon and welcome to IBTimes UK's coverage of a huge day of Premier League action. West Brom and Arsenal kick us off with six games filling the 3pm slot, and Sunderland and Chelsea taking the late game at 5:30pm.
