19:25: An entertaining evening at Anfield where the points are shared after Liverpool's second half turnaround. Villa deserved a point and maybe more having taken a two-goal lead through Andres Weimann and Christian Benteke. Daniel Sturridge's goal before the break changed the game but the incident which led to Steven Gerrard's equaliser, which saw Luis Suarez dive under a challenge from Brad Guzan, will likely be a bone of contention with Villa boss Paul Lambert.

That's about all we've for time for on this Saturday evening. We're back tomorrow with two games including Chelsea v Manchester United. Join us for that. Until then, goodbye.

Full time: Liverpool 2-2 Aston Villa

19:17: Liverpool pushing hard for a late winner. Sturridge away on the right but his cross with the inside of his left foot is straight into the hands of Guzan. Time running out for the hosts to complete the turnaround.

19:07: Luis Suarz is chasing a Liverpool record tonight with a carrot of becoming the first player to score in eight consecutive league games at Anfield and he comes the cloest has he so far with a free-kick from 30 yards, which goes just wide of Guzan's goal. Sense Villa just retreating into their shell somewhat.

19:01: Would be fair to say Villa has calmed the Liverpool onslaught and are now trying to regain the lead themselves. Grant Holt is now on and his header goes wide from a right-wing corner.

18:44: Liverpool draw level but once again we see the ugly side of Luis Suarez. Gerrard plays a terrific pass to find Suarez, who gets away and rounds Guzan and goes down without any contact between the two players. Jon Moss awards a penalty despite the Villa protests and Steven Gerrard converts without alarm.

Goal: Liverpool 2-2 Aston Villa (Steven Gerrard)

Penalty to Liverpool

18:34: Second half underway at Anfield. Might be a good one this.

18:21: Daniel Sturridge puts Liverpool back in the game right on the strike of half time at Anfield. Jordan Henderson turns the ball around the corner with a delicate flick, and Sturridge lifts the ball over the onrushing Brad Guzan. Up until that point it has been all Aston Villa, with goals coming from Andres Weimann and Christian Benteke, both from Agbonlahor crosses. Sturridge's goal though, has set up an intriging second half.

Half time: Liverpool 1-2 Aston Villa

Goal: Liverpool 1-2 Aston Villa (Daniel Sturridge)

18:09: Paul Lambert's side double their lead eight minutes before half time and Christian Benteke is the beneficiary. Gabriel Agbonlahor's cross from the right sees Mignolet flap a it, Glen Johnson miss the header and Benteke head into an empty net. You can't argue with the scoreline. It's been all Villa.

Goal: Liverpool 0-2 Aston Villa (Christian Benteke)

17:58: The visitors are ahead and not before time. Agbonlahor breaks down the left and when he sprints past Kolo Toure his cross finds Andres Weimann, who taps into an empty net. A deserved lead for Villa who have been superb in the opening 28 minutes here.

Goal: Liverpool 0-1 Aston Villa (Andres Weimann)

17:55: Again Villa again unfortunate not to be ahead. A corner from the right finds Ciaran Clark, who heads unchallenged against the post. Huge let off for Liverpool who are really struggling.

17:48: Liverpool have been very sloppy in the opening exchanges and they almost fall behind again when Weimann's crosssi clear only as far as Ashley Westwood, who drives towards goal but Mingolet denies him.

17:33: Inside the first minute and Villa shoild be ahead. A route one pass finds Benteke and his flick on finds Gabriel Agbonlahor, who is away from Skrtel, but his clip over Mignolet bounces wide.

17:31: Underway at Anfield.

17:27: Quick look at the two teams before we get going at Anfield. Just one change for both sides. Liverpool bring in Daniel Sturridge while Villa give a debut to Ryan Bertrand, who has joined the club on loan from Chelsea. Both teams are out at Anfield where as expected, Liverpool's owners are present.

17:07: Teams:

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Cissokho, Skrtel, Toure, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge, Suarez. Subs. Jones, Kelly, Lucas, Moses, Allen, Aspas, Alberto.

Aston Villa: Guzan, Bacuna, Vlaar, Clark, Bertrand, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Delph, Agbonlahor, Weimann, Benteke. Subs. Steer, Sylla, Helenius, Albrighton, Luna, Gardner, Holt.

16:57: So, six down, one to go in the Premier League today after an entertaining afternoon's football. Liverpool v Aston Villa is the final fixture of the day and team news is on the way.

16:49: Chance for Fulham at the Emirates as Bent gets in behind, rounds Szczesny but can only shoot wide as Koscielny comes in with a late challenge.

Goal: Norwich City 1-0 Hull City (Ryan Bennett)

16:38: City's 103rd goal of the season coems through Sergio Aguero, who recieves the ball from Yaya Toure, twists and turns at the Cardiff back four before smashing home.

Goal: Manchester City 4-1 Cardiff City (Sergio Aguero)

16:36: Very easy for City for get a third and put the game out of sight. Yaya Toure drives at the Cardiff back four, exchanges passes with Aguero, and hammers the ball past Marshall with his left foot.

Goal: Manchester City 3-1 Cardiff City (Yaya Toure)

16:31: Lukas Podolski on for Arsenal and he almost scores straight away. His left-foot strike is tipped on to the post by Stekelenburg.

16:23: Craig Noone is hardly an unknown in the Premier League, but he's threatening to make a real name for himself at the Etihad. The ex-Brighton man almost draws Cardiff level after running from inside his own half, cutting inside and driving low towards Joe Hart's near post, which the England keep does well to keep out.

16:20: That should be the points for the Gunners. Cazorla recieives the ball 20 yards out and he shoots low and the ball dribbles past Stekelenburg. At Upton Park, Andy Carroll is on for West Ham.

Goal: Arsenal 2-0 Fulham (Santi Cazorla)

16:19: David Silva should have put City out of sight but he only shoots wide after a picturebook move. Sergio Aguero coming on now.

16:16: Arsenal finally break-through at last and Santi Cazorla is the scorer. The Spaniard finds Giroud, who passes to Wilshere whose pass back inside finds Cazorla again and he tucks away. Lovely passing move.

Goal: Arsenal 1-0 Fulham (Santi Cazorla)

16:14: Andy Carroll update. The England striker has come out to warm up surely ahead of being introduced against his former club. At the Emirates, Gnabry is denied by Stekelenburg.

16:12: Chance for Cardiff as Jordan Mutch shoots towards goal, an effort which Joe Hatrt beats out. News from Upton Park, where Andy Carroll hasn't emerged for the second half after being left on the bench from the outset. A suggestion he will play no part today. Big blow.

Goal: Crystal Palace 1-0 Stoke City (Jason Puncheon)

16:07: Chaos at the Emirates as Arsenal are put under real pressure. from a Fulham corner, Berbatov heads the ball across goal and Burn's header has to be blocked. The Gunners' authority is on the wane.

16:03: Second halfs have begun in the Premier League.

Goal: West Ham United 1-2 Newcastle United (Mike Williamson own goal)

15:44: Half chance for Serge Gnabry, who comes inside but shoots well wide from 20 yards out. Fulham starting to look comfortable.

15:39: Double save from Martin Stekelenberg at the Emirates first from Santi Cazorla's free-kick and then from Bacary Sagna from the edge of the box on the rebound. Fulham surviving.

15:35: Cardiff are level for just four minutes before City hit the front once again. Dzeko gets away in the right hand channel and his ball across the face of the penalty area finds Jesus Navas, whose deflected shot goes beyond Marshall.

Goal: Manchester City 2-1 Cardiff City (Jesus Navas)

Goal: West Ham United 0-2 Newcastle United (Loic Remy)

15:31: Well, well, well. Cardiff City have had their backs against the wall and out of nothing, they are level. Craig Noone is played in in the penalty area, and a beautiful shimmy away from Vincent Kompany sees him then pass past Joe Hart. Wonderful finish.

Goal: Manchester City 1-1 Cardiff City (Craig Noone)

15:27: After one-way traffic in the opening minutes at the Emirates, Fulham threaten and Wojciech Szczesny is forced to make a terrific save from Steve Sidwell, who produces a superb half volley from 25 yards.

Goal: West Ham United 0-1 Newcastle United (Yohan Cabaye)

15:19: City might be ahead but perhaps they are slightly fortunate to still have 11 men after Alvaro Negredo is only booked for a nasty lunge on Gary Medal.

15:16: Manchester City net their 100th goal of the season and in truth, it's been coming since the very first minute. David Silva escaps down the left, gets to the byline and cuts the ball back for Dzeko, whose miss-hit effort bounces over the line despite McNaughton's clearance.

Goal: Manchester City 1-0 Cardiff City (Edin Dzeko)

15:12: Jesus Navas is causing havoc on the right and he almost helps City go ahead. The Spaniard's cross sees Ben Turner turn the ball towards his own goal, forcing Marshall to push it round the post.

15:06: Fulham living dangerously and Arsenl should be ahead. Ozil is put through by Wilshere and Ozil slides the ball past Stekelenberg but Hangeland clears the ball off the line.

15:04: Not sure how City aren't ahead already against Cardiff. Edin Dzeko is played in and McNaughton takes him down eight yards out from goal. Not penalty is given but when the ball is recycled, Navas shoots wide.

15:00: Underway across the country in the Premier League

14:50: Well due to the late finish at the Stadium of Light we have little time available to go through the teams for the five 3pm kick-offs but rest assure during the 90 minutes we'll have all the news from those games, with the focus on the top of the table with Arsenal playing Fulham and Manchester City against Cardiff City.

14:44: A very tentertaining way to get the day's Premier League action underway. Sunderland recover from two goals down to draw with a Southampton side who end a turbulent week with a much-needed point. Jay Rodriguez and Dejan Lovren has the visitors crusing but Fabio Borini's goal changed the game before half time. Adam Johnson levelled to see the spoils shared.

Full time: Sunderland 2-2 Southampton

14:39: Last chance for a winner for Sunderland. Corner from the left taken by Adam Johnson but Southampton survive

14:30: Injuries to both Gaston Ramirez and Dejan Lovren are either ends of the pitch means there has been a long break in playand means a signicant amount of added time will be played also. Just over two minutes of normal time to play pluis whatever Chris Foy adds on.

14:16: Southampton are punished for missing countless chances as Sunderland level with 20 minutes left. The ball is fed to Adam Johnson on the right, who goes onto his unfavoured right foot and unleashes a stunning strike which flies beyond Artur Boruc. Game on.

Goal: Sunderland 2-2 Southampton (Adam Johnson)

14:11: Full time from Elland Road where David Nugent's 88th minute goal has helped leaders Leicester City to victory over Leeds United. Big win in the race for promotion.

14:09: Sunderland have the ball in the net but they aren't level yet. Fabio Borini is played through and after sliding the ball beyond Boruc is adjudged to be offside. On reflection, the officials have got it spot on. Which must be said.

14:00: Decent start to the second half and although Sunderland have improved (and they only could) it has been Southampton with the better chances to put this game, you'd think, out of sight. Rickie Lambert is the latest man to spurn a chance to double his side's kead again, shooting at Mannone from the edge of the box.

13:48: No changes as the second half begins at the Stadium of Light.

13:36: A half of two halfs. Southampton had a two-goal lead and were utterly dominate through the early stages after goals from jay Rodriguez and Dejan Lovren, but Fabio Borini's effort has given the lacklustre Blacks Cats a lifeline. Tasty game, despite my pre-match concerns.

Half time: Sunderland 1-2 Southampton

13:19: Well, two goals in a minute has put a totally different complextion on this game. Saints had doubled their lead, and not before time as Dejan Lovren turns in a corner. But back down the other end go Sunderland in their first attack of any note, and Fabio Borini is found in the box and turns and shoots past Artur Boroc. Different game now.

Goal: Sunderland 1-2 Southampton (Fabio Borini)

Goal: Sunderland 0-2 Southampton (Dejan Lovren)

13:04: An undertatement to suggest that Southampton have dominated the opening quarter in the north east. They almost go two up as Luke Shaw's cross is deflected on Mannone's neasr post. Sunderland are merely making up the numbers.

12:51: Mauricio Pochettino's side have lift-off inside four minutes. Sunderland can't clear the ball at the edge of the box and Jay Rodriguez unleashed a bullet strike from 20 yards which flies beyond Vito Mannone. Terrible start for the host, dreamy stuff for Southampton.

Goal: Sunderland 0-1 Southampton (Jay Rodriguez)

12:46: So we're underway at the Stadium of Light. I'll be honest, I don't have high hopes for this one.

12:42: Teams in the tunnel at the Stadium of Light. Quick word on the early kick-off in the Championship where Leeds United host leaders Leicester City. Mid-way through the first half and the score in 0-0.

12:31: Two changes for Sunderland from the 4-1 win over Southampton as Steven Fletcher and Jack Colback are replaced by Jozy Altidore and Seb Larsson. Form southampton there is just one alteration, with Calum Chambers returning to replace Nathaniel Clyne.

12:30: Teams:

Sunderland: Mannone, Bardsley, Alonso, Ki, Brown, O'Shea, Cattermole, Larsson, Johnson, Borini, Altidore. Subs: Gardner, Fletcher, Celustka, Pickford, Colback, Giaccherini, Roberge.

Southampton: Boruc, Chambers, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw, Cork, Schneiderlin, S. Davis, Lallana , Rodriguez, Lambert. Subs: K. Davis, Clyne, Yoshida, Ramirez, Ward-Prowse, Guly, Hooiveld.

12:21: At Sunderland meanwhile, the departure of director of football Roberto di Fanti on Friday is not a surprise given the club's shoddy business in the summer transfer, but comes at a curious time with 13 days of the January window remaining.

12:20: The departure of Nicola Cortese has threatened to throw Southampton's impressive start to the season into chaos, with manager Maurcio Pochettino expected to join him. The boss will remain for the time being, but questions will continue to be asked until he fully commits himself to the Liebherr era at St Mary's.

12:15: All change at Sunderland and Southampton this week. How will that affect both teams as the pair collide at the Stadium of Light?
