Premier League results [3pm kick-offs]

Bournemouth 0-0 Leicester City

Manchester United 4-0 Crystal Palace

Stoke City 2-1 Southampton

West Bromwich Albion 2-2 Watford

West Ham United 1-0 Swansea City

Well that brings an end to our coverage of the 3pm kick-offs. Join us on the Chelsea Man City live blog for coverage of the blue ribbon game of the day.

Well a frantic finish in the Premier League but we have finally reached full time across the country.

Manchester United thumped Crystal Palace 4-0, with Marouane Fellaini netting twice.

Peter Crouch scored the winner against former club Southampton as Stoke won 2-1 at the Bet365 Stadium.

Watford came from to behind to draw with West Brom, while Diafra Sakho grabbed a late winner as West Ham beat Swansea.

Bournemouth and Leicester meanwhile played out a goalless draw on the south coast.

Full time: Stoke 2-1 Southampton

Full time: West Brom 2-2 Watford, West Ham 1-0 Swansea

GOAL! West Brom 2-2 Watford (Richarlison)

Full time: Bournemouth 0-0 Leicester

Full time: Manchester United 4-0 Crystal Palace

GOAL! West Ham United 1-0 Swansea City (Diafra Sakho)

GOAL! Stoke 2-1 Southampton (Peter Crouch)

GOAL! Manchester United 4-0 Crystal Palace (Romelu Lukaku)

Lukaku gets in on the act as United get their fourth.

Anthony Martial should have continued his fine record of scoring goals off the bench but he slides wide after Ander Herrera's through pass. United have cruised through most of this second half. Such a chasm between the two sides.

GOAL! Stoke 1-1 Southampton (Maya Yoshida)

Romelu Lukaku should have United four-nil to the good but he inexplicably misses the target from 12 yards. Palace look like conceding every time the hosts go forward; they've been hopeless at the back.

McArthur and Riedewald on for Schlupp and Puncheon as Palace search for this elusive goal. Twenty two minutes left to get it.

Just the one goal in the second half of games in the Premier League as we approach the final quarter of the matches. If you want to follow the build-up to the late game, Chelsea vs Manchester City, then head this way for all the team news.

In the week in which Carlo Ancelotti became a free agent, not good timing for Slaven Bilic.

The game might be gone for Palace but ending their run without a goal is key now for Roy Hodgson's side, ahead of facing Chelsea after the international break.

GOAL! Manchester United 3-0 Crystal Palace (Marouane Fellaini)

Too easy for United again. Rashford's free-kick finds Fellaini three yards out and he glances the ball into an empty net. Game over.

The reason behind the lack of updates from the London Stadium.

Back under way in the second half of our 3pm kick-off, including at Old Trafford.

So we have reached the mid-way point in our five 3pm kick-offs and we have six goals to stew on.

In our featured game at Old Trafford, it has been all Manchester United with Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini scoring the goals. Crystal Palace are heading for a record seventh straight Premier League defeat at the start of the season.

Elsewhere, Stoke lead Southampton through Mame Biram Diouf's header but it could have been more but Fraser Forster saved Saido Berahino's penalty.

West Brom soared into a two-goal lead over Watford thanks to Salomon Rondon and Jonny Evans, but Abdoulaye Doucouré's effort ensures the Hornets remain in the contest.

It is goalless at Bournemouth, who are being held by Leicester; and West Ham who are taking on Swansea.

Half time: Stoke City 1-0 Southampton

Half time: West Bromwich Albion 2-1 Watford

Half time: West Ham United 0-0 Swansea City

Half time: Manchester United 2-0 Crystal Palace, Bournemouth 0-0 Leicester

Hennessey saves at the near post Rashford. United can pick a number here and with an international break to come they can throw everything at Palace this afternoon.


Saido Berahino's 31-game run without a goal continues as Fraser Forster saves his spot-kick. February 2016 was when he last scored.

Chris Smalling should really put United out of sight here as he heads wide with Wayne Hennessey seemingly beaten.

GOAL! Stoke 1-0 Southampton (Mame Biram Diouf)

GOAL! West Bromwich Albion 2-1 Watford (Abdoulaye Doucoure)

GOAL! Manchester United 2-0 Crystal Palace (Marouane Fellaini)

Just as the Eagles threaten an equaliser United double their lead. Ashleu Young crosses to the back post and Fellaini comes in at the back post and side-foots into the net on the volley. Palace all over the place at the back.

A shot in anger from Palace and it comes from the sole frontman Sako, who is played in, in the inside left position and fires goalwards only for De Gea to punch the ball away.

Have Manchester United scored too early here, if there is such a thing? Palace coming back into the game and with Jose Mourinho's side having yet to build on their lead the visitors are coming back into the game.

Juan Mata celebrates putting Manchester United into an early lead.

GOAL! West Bromwich Albion 2-0 Watford (Jonny Evans)

GOAL! West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Watford (Salomon Rondon)

No other goals in the Premier League to speak of just yet but the chances continue to come for United at Old Trafford. Mkhitaryan crosses and as Lukaku waits to convert, Delaney clears the ball away desperately.

Meanwhile, in the Bundesliga Shinji Kagawa has scored a worldy.

Nice build-up from United as they threaten a second. Mata moves the ball on to Rashford who tees up Nemanja Matic, but he curls over the top. The Serbian's goal in the FA Cup semi-final was this week nominated for the Fifa goal of the year award but that effort won't match that.

And after an interesting week in the world of English cricket, a certain Geoff Boycott is also in attendance.

An interested spectator at Old Trafford.

It has been all United in the opening seven minutes but Ashley Young concedes a free-kick on the right hand side which gives Yohan Cabaye the chance to whip the ball in. Mamadou Sakho meets it but he can't test David de Gea. Palace are still without a Premier League goal.

GOAL! Manchester United 1-0 Crystal Palace (Juan Mata)

Oh dear. Marcus Rashford easily beats Joel Ward and Juan Mata converts from the cross inside just three minutes. A seventh straight defeat beckons for Palace.

Under way in the Premier League.

Teams in the tunnel around the country and we're rapidly approaching kick-off. The focus will be on Manchester United vs Crystal Palace but we'll have news of all the goals in the other five games when they go in. Settle down and tuck in.

And what of Bournemouth and Leicester, both of whom reside in the bottom four and have yet to catch fire this season. The Cherries broke their losing run against Brighton but the Foxes have lost three of their last four though they were competitive against Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool. Jamie Vardy is fit however and that should give the Foxes a boost.

So where are the big stories from around the Premier League this afternoon?

It is not hard to look at Stoke City and Southampton as a key game, with both sides going through a tough period. The Potters were ripped apart by Chelsea last weekend, while Saints failed to score for the 10th time in 13 games in losing to Manchester United. It might not be a goal-fest at the Bet365 Stadium.

Jamie Vardy may not be fit enough for England but he starts today for Leicester.

Crystal Palace are winless, goalless and bottom of the Premier League heading into the trip to Old Trafford. Roy Hodgson has not been able to turn things around in his two games in charge and his task has not been made much easier by the loss of Christian Benteke. Should they draw a blank again today to lose to Jose Mourinho's side they will extend their own record of seven defeats in a row without scoring.

Full time at the John Smith's Stadium and it is another victory for Tottenham on the road in the Premier League, their sixth in a row. Harry Kane scored twice, while Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko got in on the act to thrash Huddersfield. Catch up with all the events of the early kick-off, here.

Let's have a look at the teams from around the country.....

Five changes for United from the side which beat CSKA Moscow in mid-week. Valencia, Jones, Fellaini, Mata and Rashford all return. Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini start despite minor injuries.

Palace make two changes from the side which finished the 5-0 defeat to Man City. Scott Dann and the ineligible Timothy Fosu-Mensah drop out, with Damien Delaney and Joel Ward coming into the defence. Christian Benteke, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Wilfried Zaha are all absent.

And now Crystal Palace.

The Manchester United team has dropped.

Teams on the way from around the country...

The eagle-eyed among you will notice our football coverage kicked off some two hours ago with Huddersfield's clash with Tottenham at lunchtime. To follow the last quarter of the game of catch-up on the latest score head in this direction. One many has dominated.

Other than the offering from Old Trafford, we have four other games to keep you entertained.

Bournemouth host Leicester, Watford go to West Brom, Stoke welcome Southampton and West Ham take on Swansea in the Ayew derby.

Team news ahead of our five 3pm kick-offs on the way, but how might both sides line-up in our main game; Manchester United vs Crystal Palace?

Michael Carrick is the latest addition to the Manchester United treatment table, joining the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the sidelines. Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini and Anthony Martial are all doubtful

Christian Benteke starts his six-week absence due to injury, while Wilfried Zaha, James Tomkins and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all missing. Timothy Fosu-Mensah is ineligible.

Roy Hodgson has suggested that Crystal Palace should be braced for more pain after a run of six games without a point or a goal in the Premier League - the first side to go on such a run in English football history, and Old Trafford could be the scene where their trouble only mount.

Manchester United remain unbeaten this season and with only goal difference separating them from Manchester City at the top, Jose Mourinho will be delighted by their start. The 20-time English league champions have even added swashbuckling attacking play to their wins which has seen them take 16 points from a possible 18 this term.

All the build-up and team news ahead of United vs Palace and four other games in the Premier League on the way ahead of the 3pm kick-offs.
