Full-time: Hull City 2-1 West Ham United

Full-time: Manchester United 0-0 West Bromwich Albion

Full-time Burnley 0-2 Tottenham

Puncheon and Zaha combine well but the Ivorian could not put the game beyond doubt from eight yards. Inching ever closer to a huge victory.

Full-time: Leicester City 2-0 Stoke City

Chelsea going route one in their attempts to restore parity, but Palace look set to secure a vital three points. Could this result open up the title race? SEVEN minutes of stoppage time to play.

GOAL! Hull City 2-1 West Ham United (Ranocchia)

Nothing of note from Manchester United, who just can't penetrate the West Bromwich Albion defence. The Baggies almost snatched a goal during their rare foray forward, Darren Fletcher's effort palmed on to the crossbar by David de Gea.

Alli almost adds to Tottenham's lead but his curled effort flashes just past Heaton's goal.

Chelsea trying desperately to find an equaliser against Crystal Palace but Sam Allardyce's men are standing strong. Not long left to play at Stamford Bridge.

GOAL! Burnley 0-2 Tottenham (Son)

Son scores his 15th goal of the season with a close-range finish. Great work from Dele Alli to tee up the Korean. Three points are heading back to north London, surely.

It's Costa's turn to miss a huge chance at Stamford Bridge. The out-of-form Spaniard looked to have fouled Sakho during the build-up, but it mattered little as he flashed his header wide.

Wayne Rooney has just been introduced for Manchester United.

Benteke spurns a golden chance to make it 3-1 to Crystal Palace. The Belgian was left unmarked from a set-piece but couldn't guide his effort on target. Might he rue that come the final whistle?

Elsewhere Foster has just saved a rocket of a shot from Rashford. West Brom really frustrating United at the moment.

GOAL! Burnley 0-1 Tottenham (Dier)

The England international scores his first goal of the season with a lovely controlled effort from the edge of the area. Spurs' pressing has paid off.

Mkhitaryan almost goes through for United but West Brom's defence manage to make up for their earlier error.

Scott Dann has been stretchered off at Stamford Bridge and is replaced by Damien Delaney. Still 2-1 to Palace.

Zaha almost doubles his side's lead shortly after Dann's departure, but Courtois does well to deny the Ivorian.

GOAL! Watford 1-0 Sunderland (Britos)

Britos is left unmarked and nods home for Mazzarri's men at the back post. Pickford's net finally breached.

Fellaini has just missed a guilt-edged opportunity for Manchester United after some excellent work by Anthony Martial. Not the Red Devils' day so far, just over half an hour left to play.

GOAL! Hull City 1-1 West Ham United (Robertson)

Grosicki delivers a ball into the path of Robertson, who takes a touch past a West Ham defender and rifles home to restore parity to the scoreline at the KCOM. Big goal for the Humbersiders.

Heaton saves excellently from Davies to keep the scores level at Turf Moor.

Hazard causing Crystal Palace are smorgasbord of problems already in the second half but Chelsea still trail. Costa is in the referee's bad books, surprisingly.

Elsewhere, Tottenham's Harry Winks has been taken to a local hospital after injuring his ankle against Burnley.

GOAL! Leicester City 2-0 Stoke City (Vardy)

Vardy's volley doubles the champion's lead. The England international has been in fine form since the sacking of Ranieri and has taken his goal excellently.

We're back under way around the grounds. Will Palace pull off a major upset against, will Tottenham come away from Turf Moor with a precious win, and will Manchester United ever get going against West Bromwich Albion?

Winks needed oxygen as he left the stadium. A worrying sight for Tottenham, who also lost Victor Wanyama to injury.

Leicester City 1-0 Stoke City

Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Hull City 0-1 West Ham United

Watford 0-0 Sunderland

More bad news for Tottenham as young midfielder Harry Winks is receiving lengthy treatment after colliding on the pitch. Pochettino's engine room reserves are set to be tested to the limit.

Victor Wanyama's race is run. The Kenyan has picked up a knock against Burnley and has been replaced at Turf Moor by Mousa Dembele.

West Brom trying to carve an opening at Old Trafford. Chadli and Brunt getting some joy down the wings but are not testing United as of yet.

Elsewhere, Cathcart has just forced another strong save from Pickford. Watford pressing hard.

Injury worry for Watford as Younes Kaboul is replaced by Daryl Jaanmat after suffering a hamstring injury.

A fine double save from Hennessey denies Alonso and Pedro to keep Palace in the lead. The Wales international has also saved excellently Hazard and Matic.

Could he be having one of those days?

Some excellent work from Eriksen carves out a chance for Alli but the England international somehow misses the target from six yards out. Simply has to do better.

Lingard and Valencia combine well to provide a chance for Martial, who guides his header comfortably wide of Foster's goal. Drab stuff in Manchester so far.

Okaka should've scored for Watford but managed to balloon his free header from a Cathcart cross over the bar. Young goalkeeper Pickford has been called into action on a couple of occasions already, but it's still goalless at Vicarage Road.

GOAL! Leicester City 1-0 Stoke City (Ndidi)

Ndidi picks the ball out from 25 yards and has given Lee Grant absolutely no chance with a sweet strike which has flown into the left-hand the corner.

The champions have won every league game in which they've scored first, will they carry that on today?

Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial have had efforts for Manchester United, but West Brom's defence is yet to be breached. 25 minutes gone, 0-0 at Old Trafford.

Hennessey denies Diego Costa from equalising for Chelsea with an excellent save.

Elsewhere, Stoke City are testing Leicester, who remain strong at the back.

GOAL! Hull City 0-1 West Ham United (Carroll)

Andy Carroll chests down a cross and fires past Jakupovic to score his 50th Premier League goal. Smart work from Carroll, though Davies should've done better with the delivery.

Bit of unnecessary detail from Mr Lineker. Incredible happenings at Stamford Bridge, though.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-2 Crystal Palace (Benteke)

Zaha does brilliantly to play in Benteke, who incredibly scoops the ball over Courtois.

What a goal from the Belgian, who has been starved of opportunities in recent weeks.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-1 Crystal Palace (Zaha)

Zaha beats theree players in one movement and fires an unstoppable effort low into the corner. Courtois had no chance. The Ivorian has been excellent for Palace this season and was understandably jubilant.

Januzaj dazzles the Watford defence and fires an excellent low drive that Gomes has to clear.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Crystal Palace


Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard combine excellently to give the table toppers the lead against relegation-threatened Palace. Fabregas fed Hazard who jinked and bought time before teeing up the Spaniard to finish part Hennessey.

A positive start from Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge. The Eagles have already tested Courtois.

We're up and running in the 3pm kick-offs, and it's still all to play for at both ends of the table.
