Goal – Man City 1-0 Crystal Palace (Jack Grealish)

It’s been coming and it’s three in three in the league for Grealish.

No less than City deserve after a dominant start, but VAR are checking for offside…

Newcastle 0-0 Fulham


Raul Jimenez, what are you doing?!

The Fulham striker jumps into Longstaff and catches him straight in the face when the ball simply wasn’t there to be won.

He’s originally given a yellow card, but VAR intervenes and he is sent off. Fulham down to 10 men.

Bournemouth 0-1 Luton

Bournemouth are looking for a way back into this game and they nearly grab an equaliser but Tavernier’s effort goes narrowly wide.

Man City 0-0 Crystal Palace

This is looking ominous for Palace right now. It’s wave after wave of attack for City so far, and the hosts will wonder how they haven’t scored yet.

Chelsea 0-0 Sheffield United

The home team are on top with Gallagher looking bright in midfield. Still looking for that opening goal, though.

Newcastle 0-0 Fulham

This doesn’t look good for Newcastle.

Fabian Schar goes down with no one around him and he has to come off. He is replaced by Emil Krafth as Newcastle’s injury woes continue.

Man City 0-0 Crystal Palace

It’s one-way traffic at the Etihad but City can’t find a breakthrough yet.

Roy Hodgson has hit work cut out today.

Newcastle 0-0 Fulham

A lively start at St James’ Park with both sides looking bright in attack.

A couple of half-chances at either end but it remains 0-0.

Man City 0-0 Crystal Palace

City should be in front. Alvarez gets on the end of Walker’s cross and diverts it towards goal from just over six yards, but Henderson gets across brilliantly to keep it out.

Man City 0-0 Crystal Palace

City are dominating possession early on but yet to carve out a clear-cut opportunity.

Palace happy to sit back for the moment.

GOAL – Bournemouth 0-1 Luton (Elijah Adebayo)

What a start for Luton! Adebayo climbs highest and nods home from a corner to give the visitors a shock lead.

Chelsea 0-0 Sheffield United

Bright start from Chelsea as they get in down the left flank and force a corner.

Caicedo gets a shot off from the set-piece but Sheffield United clear to safety.

And we're off!

Whistles blow around the country and the four matches are underway.

Here come the teams…

The players are making their way out onto the pitch and all four matches will be getting underway shortly.

Mo Farah at the Etihad!

We have Olympic royalty at the Etihad today as Mo Farah has popped in to check out the action.

Farah is an Arsenal fan so may be hoping for a City slip-up this afternoon. Will he get his wish?

All smiles for Mauricio Pochettino

The pressure is building on Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea but he doesn’t seem to be feeling it.

The Argentine boss was in good spirits as he made his way into Stamford Bridge earlier.

Fulham looking to build on successive 5-0 wins

Fulham have won their last two games 5-0. Their players are going through their paces at St James’ Park as they go in search of a third straight big win.

Could he make the difference for the Blues?

Sven Botman back for Newcastle?

Newcastle have been dealing with so many injuries in recent weeks, but could they get one of their key players back today?

Sven Botman has arrived at St James’ Park for their clash with Fulham after a spell on the sidelines with a knee problem.

Will we see Erling Haaland today?

Erling Haaland’s first Premier League hat-trick came against Crystal Palace, but he is a major doubt for today’s game with a foot injury.
