6:34 pm
that result. an interesting day in the premier league, tottenham have just gone 2—0 up, harry kane with the goal. he is an amazing form at the goal. he is an amazing form at the moment. 19 goals he has scored in the premier league this season. i think he may have equalled teddy sheringham's premier league record. i will confirm that. please do! as it is looking, tottenham would be looking at that all—important fourth spot. they are level on points with liverpool, who are for. the race for champions league places are so close. let's talk about west ham. a really big win for west ham, 4—1 against huddersfield. 0nly
6:35 pm
a really big win for west ham, 4—1 against huddersfield. only three other managers have done what they have done. it is a big win. lanzini and are arnautovic with girls. phi —— with the goals. david moyes will be delighted with his players, particularly marco a narrative which —— marko arnautovic. particularly marco a narrative which -- marko arnautovic. that is why we paid a big favour him. giving him a more free roll up front front has given him the chance to show other sites to his game, the effort, the way he has worked. today, he could have been played in a couple of times by lanzini in the first—half and didn't get a pass. in the end, it was marco who was playing in the
6:36 pm
lanzini to it was marco who was playing in the la nzini to school. it was marco who was playing in the lanzini to school. he has done really well. we were below par. especially individually, we had too many players who were below par. not nice, but this can happen. they are humans, and we have to accept it, especially before we conceded the goals. especially the first three. more less own goals. at this level, you cannot make the mistakes we have done. chelsea and leicester, 0-0, with chelsea chasing second, and you would think they would be disappointed with that draw. they missed the chance. three successive 0-0 missed the chance. three successive 0—0 draws for chelsea. this was a very good 0—0. leicester dominated in the first—half and should have taken lead. in the first—half and should have
6:37 pm
ta ken lead. courtois in the first—half and should have taken lead. courtois pulled off a great save. 12 shots. ben chilwell was sent off for two bookings. leicester deserved a point. frustration for chelsea. they don't move into second, and manchester city have a chance to move to increase the gap when they play stoke on monday. leicester were excellent today. no goals in that much, but we did have a go at crystal palace against burnley, big three for crystal palace. when frank de boer was sacked afterjust five games, the last manager, a lot of people were like, how can this be? but maybe the chairman's decision has been vindicated. they have been excellent under roy hodgson, just one defeat in 12 under him. it is their sixth premier league win under his management. remember, when he took over, they were in serious trouble. beating burnley 1—0, burnley have been in poorform,
6:38 pm
three defeats in a row. sakho scored. talk about roy hodgson being written off as a manager, he was written off as a manager, he was written off as a manager, he was written off as a player. he wasn't doing well but now he is a regular in the team and scoring goals as well. was... let's listen to roy. it is important that we stay very modest. at the start of the season, after seven games, we were given no hope of getting out of a relegation battle. now we have given ourselves hope, but there is an awful lot of work to do, a lot of games to play, and there will be plenty of suffering in the last 15—20 minutes of every premier league match, like i've suffered today. he realises he has a fight on his hands, doesn't he? watford came from 2—0 down and then their match. this is the reason
6:39 pm
to watch match of the day. this is the controversial game of the day. southampton were 2—0 up. doucoure ray scored an equaliser in the 90th minute. i have seen it back and i think... southampton were devastated to lose two important points. we will look at the table, and it could have a big impact on their season. you are used to seeing southampton mid—table, but with the change of managers over the last few seasons, and the changes of personnel, they seem and the changes of personnel, they seem to be paying the price. pellegrino was under pressure, which is why he is very angry with the goal at the end. let's hear from him. the premier league is really tight. it is important. i never in
6:40 pm
the premier league see this type of thing before, for the reason we are surprised. for me, the referee are good. this is really hard. confirmation of those results, john. newcastle, swansea, 1—1 there. swa nsea, newcastle, swansea, 1—1 there. swansea, bottom of the table, what hope that they have? swansea had a chance but it was saved off the line at the end. newcastle's former home is really poor, another team in trouble. look at the matches tomorrow. bournemouth and arsenal, that was a massive scoring game last time around, 3—3. and then the game of the day on sunday, liverpool against manchester city. mohamed salah back for liverpool. manchester city still unbeaten domestic league. will they lose a domestic game this time? two really exciting going
6:41 pm
forward. we look at the premier league table as well, let's see what those results have to things. chelsea are level on points with manchester united but with a game in hand. they will rue the draw with leicester. missed the chance to go above manchester united. tottenham hotspur, you can see how important that win is, it would take them level on points with liverpool. where it is really closes at the bottom. a win for west brom, though they are still in the relegation zone. swansea, 17 points, all the way up to newcastle in 14th, just six points separating them. you can see how important the late equaliser was for southampton. it is so close. all of these teams are still in trouble. just keeping a close eye on totte n ha m trouble. just keeping a close eye on tottenham against everton at wembley. it is still 2—0 to totte n ha m. wembley. it is still 2—0 to tottenham. we will keep you up—to—date throughout the programme.
