That is it for this particular live blog, but be sure to stay with me for live coverage of a mouth-watering teatime clash between Manchester City and Tottenham.

Full-time scores

Bournemouth 2-2 Watford

Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton

Middlesbrough 1-3 West Ham

Stoke 1-1 Manchester United

West Brom 2-0 Sunderland

Argentine loanee Calleri, who is expected to leave West Ham this month, notches his first goal in English football with a shot that takes a big deflection en route to beating Valdes.

Goal: Middlesbrough 1-3 West Ham (Jonathan Calleri)

What drama. Rooney steps up deep into second-half stoppage time and sweeps a belting free-kick into the top corner to move clear of Charlton and break United's all-time scoring record.

Heartbreak for Stoke. The Red Devils look to have sealed a point.

Wayne Rooney and Ander Herrera

Goal: Stoke 1-1 Manchester United (Wayne Rooney)

Allen fouls Rashford and concedes a late free-kick in a very dangerous area. Clattenburg produces a yellow card.


Phil Jones attempts to pick out Lingard but succeeds only in sending the ball out of play. It just isn't happening for Mourinho's side today.

Five minutes of added time signalled by the fourth official.

The impressive Tom Davies provides a late assist for Seamus Coleman to potentially steal all three points for Everton at Selhurst Park. These are desperate times indeed for Crystal Palace and Sam Allardyce.

Goal: Crystal Palace 0-1 Everton (Seamus Coleman)

United continue to hunt for an equaliser. Shawcross forces Pogba into a weak shot and Lingard smashes an effort against the crossbar from 20 yards.

He declined a call-up to the Africa Cup of Nations to help cement a regular starting berth at Bournemouth and Afobe has likely just rescued a point for the Cherries barring another late sting in the tail. He picks out the bottom corner after being set-up by Andrew Surman.

Goal: Bournemouth 2-2 Watford (Benik Afobe)

Into the final 10 minutes. Can Stoke hold on to end United's unbeaten run?

Shawcross survives another handball appeal in the box.

Valencia gets to the byline and crosses for Lingard, who flicks on towards Rooney. However, the 31-year-old can only head over the top.

Rooney's cross towards Ibrahimovic falls for Rashford, but the substitute can only bend his effort wide of the top corner.

Pogba then exchanges passes with his captain before shooting well wide.

A substitution apiece now. Jesse Lingard is on for Mkhitaryan and Shaqiri makes way for Julien Ngoy.

Deeney somehow beats Artur Boruc and three Bournemouth defenders to glance Watford back in front down on the south coast. Eddie Howe will not be happy with his team's slack defending.

Goal: Bournemouth 1-2 Watford (Troy Deeney)

Rooney comes on for Mata. A goal for the skipper here would see him move clear of Sir Bobby Charlton, who is present at the bet365 Stadium, are United's all-time leading scorer.

Rashford surges forward through the middle and is crudely blocked off by Shawcross. Somehow Clattenburg declines to blow his whistle.

Confident save from De Gea to repel a hopeful Shaqiri effort.

Wayne Rooney is preparing to enter the fray with 25 minutes left to go.

Mata appeals in vain for a spot kick after Pogba's cross looks to hit the hand of Shawcross.

Grant and Pieters have both picked up yellow cards for Stoke, who withdraw Adam in favour of Ibrahim Afellay.

Grant denies Ibrahimovic with a low one-handed save after the veteran forward, always eager to play on the shoulder of the last man, is put through by Pogba. The offside flag is belatedly raised.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Clattenburg waves away half-hearted calls for a Stoke penalty. Mourinho utilises his bench for the first time by sending on Marcus Rashford in place of Fellaini.

Mata hits nothing but fresh air with an attempted bicycle kick and Crouch then ambitiously volleys wide from all of 30 yards. That would have been quite a way to celebrate 100 Premier League goals.

King puts Bournemouth back on level terms after fine work from Adam Smith.

Goal: Bournemouth 1-1 Watford (Josh King)


Ibrahimovic collects a through pass from Mkhitaryan and rolls the ball across the six-yard box before being flagged for offside.

The speedy Armenian may have been better off shooting there.

We are off and running once again at Stoke. United have been profligate with their finishing so far, can they find a way past the impressive Grant?

Half-time scores

Bournemouth 0-1 Watford

Crystal Palace 0-0 Everton

Middlesbrough 1-2 West Ham

Stoke 1-0 Manchester United

West Brom 2-0 Sunderland

A Stoke counter comes to nothing and Grant easily holds a tame long-range effort from Pogba. That will do it for the opening 45 minutes.

It's that man Carroll again for West Ham. Victor Valdes can't hold Michail Antonio's initial effort and the pony-tailed maestro is on hand to notch his third goal in two games.

Goal: Middlesbrough 1-2 West Ham (Andy Carroll)

Grant tips the ball over after a Valencia cross is driven into the deck by Fellaini. The Stoke goalkeeper then throws out a strong right hand to repel Pogba's powerful volley.

Lee Grant

Brunt arrows in a super volley of his own after Nacer Chadli hits the crossbar. West Brom are cruising at The Hawthorns.

Goal: West Brom 2-0 Sunderland (Chris Brunt)

Purposeful running from Mkhitaryan, who releases Ibrahimovic. Apparently caught in two minds, the big Swede tries to play in Mata instead of going for goal himself.

Stoke escape with a corner and Smalling heads Herrera's cross over the top. Mkhitaryan then finds row z after Herrera combines nicely with Antonio Valencia.

Fletcher's volley piles more misery on Sunderland, who have sunk to the bottom of the table thanks to that shock lunchtime win for Swansea at Anfield.

Goal: West Brom 1-0 Sunderland (Darren Fletcher)

A glaring miss from Mata. The Spaniard blazes over from close range amid pressure from Bruno Martins Indi after a squared pass from Ibrahimovic. Good play from Paul Pogba to set that attack in motion.

Juan Mata

West Ham weren't in front for too long at the Riverside Stadium. Stuani turns home Calum Chambers' pass at the back post to score his first Premier League goal since October.

Goal: Middlesbrough 1-1 West Ham (Cristhian Stuani)

A chance for United to equalise in the Potteries. Mata tees up Fellaini for a header that is well saved by Grant.

Watford, without a Premier League victory since early December, take the lead at Dean Court. Belgian defender Kabasele finishes from close range after Miguel Britos heads a corner back across goal.

Goal: Bournemouth 0-1 Watford (Christian Kabasele)

An incisive counter-attack from Stoke and they take the lead against the run of play. Erik Pieters combines well with Arnautovic and the left-back's pull back is deflected into his own net by Mata.

There looked to be a big touch off David De Gea there too. Manchester United's unbeaten streak is under threat.

Stoke vs Manchester United

Goal: Stoke 1-0 Manchester United (Juan Mata OG)

Stoke look to move forward but their attack is stalled by a rogue Adam pass. Hughes and Xherdan Shaqiri vent their frustration at the officials after a debatable decision.

A full-blooded collision between Charlie Adam and Henrikh Mkhitaryan rather encapsulates the intensity of this Stoke-United clash. Still goalless after 15 minutes.

Following on from his remarkable bicycle kick against Crystal Palace last week, Carroll pops up again to give West Ham an early lead at Middlesbrough. The physical striker rises highest to head home a Manuel Lanzini corner.

Dimitri who?

Goal: Middlesbrough 0-1 West Ham (Andy Carroll)

Just six minutes gone and the volatile Arnautovic is rightly cautioned for hauling down Herrera as the Basque midfielder tried to lead a quick United counter.

Impeded by his own teammate in Ryan Shawcross, Lee Grant spills Mata's free-kick but neither Zlatan Ibrahimovic nor Smalling can turn the loose ball home.

Stoke start in positive fashion and win an early corner. United are just trying to take the sting out of the game at the moment.

Ander Herrera and Fellaini combine to clear a Stoke free-kick after Smalling scythes down Joe Allen.

Referee Mark Clattenburg gets us underway in Staffordshire. United, decked out all in blue, will kick from left to right in this first half.

Vibrant atmosphere at the bet365 Stadium.

Stoke are parading Berahino, who has not played a first-team match since September and has completed two stints at a French conditioning camp in a bid to improve his fitness, before kick-off.

Saido Berahino

That deal was completed and announced last night, merely hours after Hughes claimed that there had been no progression in talks for quite some time. Tony Pulis also stated that the initial offer received was nowhere near West Brom's asking price.

Meanwhile, Mourinho explains Rojo's absence...


Mourinho makes four changes to his side following that 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Old Trafford. Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata are all recalled, with Matteo Darmian and Michael Carrick both dropping to the bench.

Marcos Rojo and Anthony Martial are omitted altogether, meanwhile. Bastian Schweinsteiger is among the visiting substitutes.

Mark Hughes, searching for his 50th league win as Stoke boss, names the same starting XI that eased to a 3-1 win at Sunderland last weekend courtesy of an early brace from Marko Arnautovic and a 99th top-flight goal from Peter Crouch.

The only change to the bench sees Bojan return at the expense of youngster Joel Taylor.


The teams are in...

Those wishing to follow second-half coverage of the lunchtime kick-off between Liverpool and Swansea can do so here. It's currently goalless at Anfield.

In terms of team news from our main game, new £12m Stoke striker Saido Berahino was NOT signed in time to feature today.

Bojan Krkic will be involved again despite rumours that he could be off to Middlesbrough and Geoff Cameron is now back in training. Jonathan Walters, Jack Butland and Stephen Ireland remain sidelined, while Wilfried Bony, Mame Biram Diouf and Ramadan Sobhi are all away on Africa Cup of Nations Duty.

Bojan Krkic

Aside from long-term absentee James Wilson, Jose Mourinho, who this week sanctioned the sale of out-of-favour Dutch forward Memphis Depay to Lyon, has no injury worries to contend with. Eric Bailly is also in Gabon with the Ivory Coast.

Hello and welcome to IBTimes UK's live coverage of five Saturday 3pm Premier League kick-offs. Our feature game today comes from the bet365 Stadium, where Manchester United will hope to banish memories of their 2-0 defeat last season and extend a formidable unbeaten run to 17 matches across all competitions against mid-table Stoke City.

While that fixture is set to take precedence here, we will also endeavour to keep you fully up to date with goings on from around the grounds as struggling Crystal Palace host Everton and West Ham travel to Middlesbrough. Bournemouth take on Watford and West Brom welcome Sunderland.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic
