Well that is all we have time for on this Premier League live text. We'll have a full round up on all of today's results later, and back with coverage of tomorrow's three games as Leicester look to open up a 10-point lead before Tottenham host Manchester United. Until next time, goodbye.

Full time across the country and Aston Villa survive for another week but they suffered an eighth straight defeat to Bournemouth, who also go above the 40-point mark. Crystal Palace end a horrible run of form by beating Norwich City, who are still in trouble despite have a four-point cushion over the bottom three. Newcastle are on the brink after losing to Southampton. The final game saw Watford and Everton play out a 1-1 draw, with both teams destined for mid-table.

Full time at the Liberty Stadium and Swansea beat Chelsea, recording their first ever win over the west London club and more importantly reach 40 points for the season. safety is all but secure. Francesco Guidolin is thrilled at the full-time whistle, and you can understand why.

Into five added minutes at the Liberty. Swansea holding firm.....

Swansea sitting in, inviting pressure onto them as Chelsea dominate possession. Can't convincingly state the west London club look like scoring though.

First thing Fabianski has had to do in this second half, plucking a Falcao effort out of the air after Williams got across to block his effort. A rare attempt on goal for Chelsea.

Goal: Aston Villa 1-2 Bournemouth (Jordan Ayew)

Yellow card for Leroy Fer and he is a tad fortunate it isn't more after a two-footed lunge on the halfway line. Swansea looking very comfortable here and heading for a win which would all-but confirm their survival.

Swansea should be out of sight. Sigurdsson gets around Mikel flicks the ball over the onrushing Begovic and with an open goal to aim at he heads over the crossbar. A lifeline for Chelsea?

Goal: Aston Villa 0-2 Bournemouth (Josh King)

Goal: Crystal Palace 1-0 Norwich (Jason Puncheon)

Deadlock broken at Selhurst Park, where Jason Puncheon's goal keeps Aston Villa in the Premier League, at least for the time being. Around 20 minutes to go across the country.

Wayne Routledge on for Andre Ayew for Swansea. Sigurdsson denied by Ivanovic as Swansea attempt to get a second which you feel would put the result beyond doubt. Game meandering along it must be said.

Goal: Southampton 3-1 Newcastle (Andros Townsend)

Bertrand Traore on for Alexandre Pato for Chelsea. After a decent start, Swansea are very much in control of this game. Hiddink starting down the barrel of his first league defeat.

Asmir Begovic makes a fine save to keep Jack Cork from scoring against his former club. Another wayward Chelsea clearance falls to the midfielder fully 30 yards out and he drives the ball into the ground and it is clawed away by the Blues stopper.

Goal: Southampton 3-0 Newcastle (Victor Wanyama)

Chance for Swansea. Montero exchanges passes with Sigurdson and finds Paloschi who lets the ball get away from him. Chelsea go again though and Pato comes within inches of levelling, but flicks Pedro's cross wide.

Ball in the net for Chelsea from Pato but the referee's assistant has flagged for a handball as the Brazilian ran through on goal. Very good finish but it won't count for the visitors, who have already improved on their sluggish first half display.

Aston Villa on the brink of relegation as they trail by a goal to AFC Bournemouth. More on how they fair in the second half on the way as the players come out after half time. Back under way in our featured game at the Liberty Stadium.

Half time at the Liberty Stadium and across the country where Swansea have a deserved lead through Gylfi Sigurdsson's goalo against Chelsea. Elsewhere, Southampton has deepened the relegation gloom around Newcastle with goals from Shane Long and Graziano Pelle.

Matt Miazga has had a woeful half and is booked for taking down Montero, who was through on goal down the left. The Ecuadorian has been at his very best in this first half, giving Chelsea all sorts of problems.

Goal: Southampton 2-0 Newcastle (Graziano Pelle)

Somehow Swansea don't double their lead as the Chelsea goal continues to come under pressure. First, Leroy Fer collects the ball from an over-hit corner and pulls the ball back but it evades the two Swans players waiting for the ball in the six yard area. Now there is a mix-up between Begovic and Rahman and when the 'keepers' clearance hits the Chelsea defender the ball breaks to Ayew whose weak effort is parried by Begovic. Really messy stuff from the visitors.

Chelsea looking a shadow of the team which is meant to be 14 games unbeaten in the top flight under Guus Hiddink. Swansea have kicked on from the goal and are dominating the game, with Montero a constant threat on the left.

Goal: Swansea 1-0 Chelsea (Gylfi Sigurdsson)

Swansea closing in on that elusive 40-pont mark as they take the lead after 24 minutes. Miazga heads away poorly from a Montero cross and the ball falls nicely to Sigurdsson who takes it first time on the volley, and is bounces past a visually impaired Begovic.

Swansea again living dangerously in their own penalty area. Rangel clears straight again Rahman, who drills a perfect cross along the six-yard box but there isn't a single Chelsea player in the vicinity. Not a bad start this to a game devoid of a real competitive edge.

Now it is Swansea's turn to threaten and it leads to two chances in as many minutes. Matt Miazga plays a loose clearance and the ball is fed to Sigurdsson, who is denied at point blank range by Begovic. Now Rangel gets in but he scoops his effort wide as Begovic comes out to restrict the angle.

Federico Fernandez keeps Swansea from going behind. Oscar swings in a low cross from the right and Loftus-Cheek burst into the area, but the Swans centre-back recovers to knock the ball behind for a corner.

Loftus-Cheek has been entrusted with the number 10 role today and he is a real presence in that position. He holds off Jack Cork with ease and feeds Fabregas and though he knocks it on to Pedro, Alexandre Pato can't latch onto the through ball.

Jefferson Montero is back in the Swansea first team today (you have to wonder why he hasn't been playing more) and he has the hosts best effort in the opening stages having a cross deflected goalwards and Begovic gets down to make an easy save.

First effort in anger comes from Chelsea, as Ruben Loftus-Cheek tests Fabianski but he makes an easy save. Loftus-Cheek scored his first Premier League goal last weekend, and will be eager to add to that tally this afternoon.

Goal: Southampton 1-0 Newcastle (Shane Long)

Under way in south Wales and across the country in the Premier League. All the goals and updates as they go in on the way.

Teams coming out across the country. At Swansea, their is a tribute to the city's steal industry as a banner held up by local workers is paraded around the pitch at the Liberty Stadium. A nice touch from a Premier League club who have not forgotten their roots. Many sides could learn from that.

A sign of the support Everton fans are showing for Baines, who was denounced by his manager this week.

Just 15 minutes until kick-off up and down the country. There might not be much on the fixture at Vicarage Road this afternoon in terms of the table, but it has the capacity to get nasty from an Everton point of view the result once again goes against Roberto Martinez's side. The Merseysiders have lost three of their last four in the league, and Martinez's comments regarding Leighton Baines' criticism of the team has not endeared him to the Toffees faithful. Another loss today could ratchet the pressure up on the Spaniard.

Full time at Upton Park where it has finished West Ham 3-3 Arsenal. Not the result either side were after and it probably ends both sides hopes of a Champions League place or winning the Premier League title. Thrilling game, with some terrible defending littered in between. Let's hope that sets the tone for the remainder of the afternoon.

Though I am attempting to build-up to our 3pm kick-offs, it is hard to be anything other than distracted by events at Upton Park, where the last London derby at the old ground is a cracker. An Andy Carroll hat-trick had put West Ham ahead, but Laurent Koscielny has just made it three all. Head over to our live blog for the climax to one of the games of the season in the Premier League.

A line from the Chelsea bench where Guus Hiddink continues his commitment to giving opportunity to the club's young players. Ola Aina, Charlie Colkett and Kasey Palmer all on the bench.

Four changes for Swansea from the draw with Stoke. In come Neil Taylor, Jefferson Montero, Andre Ayew and Alberto Paloschi.

Teams news around 10 minutes away, but how do we expect both sides in our featured game Swansea vs Chelsea, to line up?

The Swans have Andre Ayew back after an ankle problem but Leon Briton and Jordi Amat are unavailable.

Chelsea are again without the injured Diego Costa and the injured Loic Remy, meaning Alexandre Pato could continue in attack.

Before we look at the team news for today's game, a quick shout for our coverage of West Ham vs Arsenal, where the hosts have come back from two goals down to level before the break. Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez put the Gunners into a comfortable lead by Andy Carroll has stuck twice in the close stages of the half to draw the hosts level. Some second half in prospect.

We are barely two weeks into the month of February and the first club which will drop of the Premier League could be determined this afternoon. Aston Villa will be playing Championship football next season if Norwich City beat Crystal Palace and Villa fail to beat Bournemouth. It is also a big day for Newcastle too, with Rafa Benitez's side six points from safety. Out featured game with focus on another of the relegation strugglers Swansea, who hosts a Chelsea side unbeaten in 14 Premier League games under Guus Hiddink. Updates, teams news and all the goals as they go in on the way.
