Full time: Newcastle 3-3 Manchester United

Hard to think of a better Premier League game this season. Newcastle United twice come from behind to hold Louis van Gaal's side at St James' Park. Wayne Rooney returned to form with two goals and an assist but it was not enough as Georginio Wijnaldum, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Paul Dummett strike to grab a fine point for Steve McClaren's side. Brilliant game.

Well that is all we have time for on this Premier League live text. We are back tomorrow will all the games includes Liverpool vs Arsenal but until then goodbye.

Full time: Bournemouth 1-3 West Ham

Full time: Aston Villa 1-0 Crystal Palace

Goal: Newcastle United 3-3 Manchester United (Paul Dummett)

Newcastle get the point their performance, particularly in the second half, has deserved. Sissoko's cross is cleared by the United defence and Paul Dummett comes onto it and lashes, via a Smalling deflection, past De Gea.

How does Fellaini not score? Depay's cross finds him unmarked and the Belgian is denied by Elliot.

Goal: Bournemouth 1-3 West Ham (Enner Valencia)

Goal: Newcastle United 2-3 Manchester United (Wayne Rooney)

What a terrific goal which could grab all three points. Lingard takes an optimistic shot from range which is blocked but the ball breaks to Rooney who curls a beauty into the top corner. Fabulous finish.

Juan Mata on for Ander Herrera. Might take more than that to change the flow at St James' Park.

Goal: Bournemouth 1-2 West Ham (Enner Valencia)

It is all Newcastle at St James' Park and once again they almost go ahead for the first time. Sissoko pulls the ball back to Wijnuldum whose shot hits Mitrovic, before United get the ball clear. Fine game this one.

Newcastle have the ball in the net again as Wijnaldum thunders the ball past De Gea but he is clearly offside, a good three yards, and it won't count.

Goal: Bournemouth 1-1 West Ham United (Dmitri Payet)

Goal: Newcastle 2-2 Manchester United (Aleksandar Mitrovic)

At the third time of asking Newcastle finally have their penalty, their first since Boxing Day 20144, and there are no arguements as Chris Smalling wrestles Mitrovic to the ground. The Serbian forward gets up and sends De Gea the wrong way.

Penalty to Newcastle United

Jesse Lingard off and Memphis Depay on for Manchester United. Just seen a replay of Van Gaal's reaction to Lingard's miss from earlier - not pretty.

End-to-end game this one. First Wayne Rooney bares down on goal but it stopped in his track by Coloccini, before as Newcastle attack Fellaini fells Jack Colback. No penalty says Mike Dean and you can understand why on this occasion as he goes to ground with ease.

Goal: Aston Villa 1-0 Crystal Palace (Joleon Lescott)

Louis van Gaal is irate on the touchline, and you can understand why. Martial and Herrera combine and set up Lingard who curls goalwards but it is horribly high and over. Guilty-edged chance which should have re-established United's two-goal lead.

We didn't have to wait long for the first chance and it comes for Newcastle. Sissoko is released down the left and escapes young, turns back inside the England man and is only denied by the onrushing De Gea.

Lively start in the north east even if there have been no real shots on goal from either side. More goals in this one, surely.

Back under way at Villa Park and the Vitality Stadium. And now at St James' Park, where there are no half time changes.

Half time: Newcastle United 1-2 Manchester United

An action-packed half of the Premier League, and don't adjust your screen it does involve Manchester United. Mike Dean has been at the centre of nearly everything, the awarding of a United penalty, a refusal to send off Marouane Fellaini and give a spot kick to Newcastle has contributed to an entertaining half which sees the visitors ahead through Wayne Rooney and Jesse Lingard's goals. Georginio Wijnaldum has pulled one back to set up a fascinating second half.

Also half time at the Vitality Stadium where Harry Arter's goal means it is Bournemouth 1-0 West Ham

Half time at Villa Park where it is Aston Villa 0-0 Crystal Palace

Goal: Newcastle United 1-2 Manchester United (Georginio Wijnaldum)

A lifeline for Newcastle. Coloccini floats a ball up towards Mitrovic who out-jumps two Manchester United defenders and knocks the ball down to the incoming Wijnaldum who times his run to perfection and strokes it beyond De Gea. Fine goal.

Newcastle almost bite back immediately as Fabricio Coloccini hits goalwards and it goes just wide of David de Gea's goal.

Goal: Newcastle United 0-2 Manchester United (Jesse Lingard)

No argument about the second which Manchester United a grip of the game at St James' Park. Wayne Rooney escapes down the left, plays a beautiful reverse pass to Jesse Lingard who un-track takes the ball on and fires through Elliot.

Mike Dean really is having a nightmare. Not only does he miss an albeit off-the-ball tug by Fellaini on Colback - which could have led to a second yellow card - he overlooks Lingard's challenge on Janmaat when there is a tangle of legs. Really not good from the referee.

Chris Smalling for a foul on Perez, when in fact Ander Herrera was the guilty party. Not a great night so far for referee Mike Dean.

The Magpies finally hit back. Perez opens up United after exchanging passes with Wijnaldum, who is denied by De Gea. Big chance for the hosts.

United should be two up. Rooney goes clean through but left-footed he misses the right-hand post. Newcastle so flat.

Fellaini gets a booking but not until after he almost comes close to scoring from a United corner after he reacts first to a knock-down. Paul Dummett helps block the effort before he is fouled by the Belgian.

Marouane Fellaini very fortunate to avoid a yellow card after a foul on Jack Colback, his third of the game. Newcastle have offered nothing in this game so far and really have had the stuffing taken out of them by that dubious penalty.

Goal: Bournemouth 1-0 West Ham (Harry Arter)

News from Bournemouth and Andy Carroll is off for West ham with an unidentified muscle injury. Down the tunnel and not happy is the England forward.

Goal: Newcastle United 0-1 Manchester United (Wayne Rooney)

Mike Dean might look back on this decision and regret it. A corner towards the back post sees Marouane Fellaini head the ball back onto the arm of Mbemba who is so close to the Belgian he is almost hanging onto him. The official awards a penalty to the surprise of an aghast St James' Park and Wayne Rooney steps up and converts his second spot kick in as many games.

Penalty to Manchester United

Very cagey start from both sides at St James', with much of the game being played in the middle of the pitch and neither side showing much in the way of ambition. Playing their way into the game at the moment.

Wonderfully observed and we're now under way at St James' Park, not to mention at Villa Park and on the south coast.

Players out across the country but before kick-off at St James' Park there will be a minute's applause to mark the passing for former Newcastle goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek.

Jonjo Shelvey is currently being paraded around St James' Park. £12m is a lot of money for a player not wanted or getting in the team of the side just two points above you in the table. Big gamble from Newcastle United.

BT Sport have just shown a series of highlight from the stalemate between Newcastle and United which was not one for the annuls. Can't imagine they will be releasing a DVD of the game in the near future.

A quick word on how tonight will work. Our focus will be on events at St James' Park, but we will have news of all the goals from Villa Park and the Vitality Stadium as they go in. At full time we will have all the reaction and a review of the night's games. You need not move a muscle.

Busy night for Newcastle off the field, but what of their opponents Manchester United? Louis van Gaal admitted this week he has become bored watching his own side in a stunning attack on his side's performances. The win over Sheffield United in the FA Cup brought with it new waves of criticism from club supporters but will tonight's game see a change in approach? The Toon have been on a resurgence of late and can they take advantage?

Newcastle will pay tribute to their former goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek, who passed away on 29 December, tonight ahead of the game against Manchester United. Players are currently warming up at St James' Park in t-shirts with the slogan 'Pavel is a Geordie'. Nice touch.

Louis van Gaal says Juan Mata has been rested tonight after a grueling recent schedule. He adds that Ander Herrera will operate in an unnatural wide role. We'll wait and see how United will line up.

Interesting team put out by Remi Garde, who seems to be rolling the dice for the every game such is Villa's dire situation at the bottom. Tonight, Libor Kozak starts in attack and Mark Bunn comes in for Brad Guzan.


Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace

Aston Villa: Bunn; Bacuna, Okore, Lescott, Cissokho; Gana, Westwood, Veretout, Gil; Ayew, Kozak

Crystal Palace: Hennessey; Ward, Dann, Delaney (c), Souare; Cabaye; Ledley, McArthur; Zaha; Puncheon, Sako

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that new Bournemouth signing Benik Afobe makes his full debut for the club for the visit of West Ham. Fellow new addition Lewis Grabban is on the bench meanwhile.

For West Ham, Dimitri Payet makes his first start since undergoing ankle surgery.


Bournemouth vs West Ham

Bournemouth: Boruc, Francis, Cook, Gosling, Surman, Arter, Daniels, Smith, Stanislas, Afobe, Ritchie

West Ham: Adrian, Tomkins, Collins, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Obiang, Noble (c), Antonio, Payet, Valencia, Carroll

Just one change for Newcastle from the FA Cup defeat to Watford, with Kevin Mbabu missing out and Jack Colback coming in.

Louis van Gaal makes three alterations to his side, as Ashley Young, Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin all return.


Newcastle: Elliot, Janmatt, Coloccini, Mbemba, Dummett, Sissoko, Tiote, Colback, Wijnaldum, Mitrovic, Perez

Manchester United: De Gea, Young, Smalling, Blind, Darmian, Schneiderlin, Fellaini, Lingard, Herrera, Martial, Rooney.

Something to look out for ahead of kick-off

Quick note before I bring you the teams, tonight's game at St James' Park is taking place 20 years on from that thrilling game between Newcastle and United in 1996, where an Eric Cantona goal secured victory which would eventually see Sir Alex Ferguson's side go on to win the title. For Kevin Keegan, he would soon become embroiled in a war of words with the Scot which could lead to one of the great rants in recent broadcasting history. In case you have forgotten...

Teams should be along any minutes now but until then let's have a look at how both teams should line up at St James' Park.

Newcastle do not have either of their new signings Henri Saivet or Jonjo Shelvey available for the visit of Louis van Gaal's side, but they do have Jack Colback fit again. Fabricio Coloccini, Florian Thauvin and Kevin Mbabu are all doubtful.

Bastian Schweinsteiger is expected to miss out after going off against Sheffield United but the likes of Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin are likely to be involved.

After a brief New Year fling with the FA Cup, the Premier League returns for 10 more games from the English top flight. Tonight there are just three matches, but all they carry plenty of subtext. A now Jonjo Shelvey-bolstered Newcastle United host a Manchester United side labeled boring by their own manager, doomed Aston Villa take on Crystal Palace while Bournemouth could showcase new signing Benik Afobe against away-day specialists West Ham. Team news from all three games on the way including from our featured game at St James'.
