  • NORWICH 0-1 MAN UTD REACTION [norwich]
    Chris Hughton says his Norwich side deserved a point against Manchester United
    We conceded a very unfortunate goal. A fortuitous goal for them, with a double deflection that ran correctly into the path of Welbeck. When he has that type of opportunity then generally he is going to score. A real disappointment because we thoroughly deserved to get more than we did.

  • NORWICH 0-1 MAN UTD REACTION [manchesterunited]
    David Moyes wasn't happy about his Christmas fixture list - but is delighted to take away six points from two away games.
    To win back-to-back games in three days in the Premier League away from home is really difficult. Some teams don't play until tomorrow but we had two games in three days and I've got to say the squad coped really well.

  • Here's the first Cardiff team of the post-Mackay era

    12/28/2013 5:30:06 PM
  • Here's how Sunderland line up for this game. Will they fancy three points tonight?

    12/28/2013 5:30:13 PM
  • CARDIFF 0-0 SUNDERLAND
    It's fair to say the majority of Cardiff fans were less than impressed by the sacking of manager Malky Mackay and they have shown their support for him ahead of kick-off. Can caretaker-boss David Kerslake give them something to cheer? We are moments away from finding out...
    12/28/2013 5:30:47 PM
  • CARDIFF 0-0 SUNDERLAND
    [kick-off]Here we go then.
    12/28/2013 5:31:20 PM

    12/28/2013 5:32:55 PM

    Swans boss Michael Laudrup said his team should have won at Villa Park today
    12/28/2013 5:34:17 PM
  • CARDIFF 0-0 SUNDERLAND
    Noone skips past Dossena down the Cardiff right flank and delivers a pinpoint cross but Mutch cannot keep it down and it flies harmlessly over the crossbar.
    12/28/2013 5:35:30 PM
  • [goal] GOAL! CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND (Mutch)
    Mutch runs into space and unleashes a shot from the edge of the area that takes a deflection off Diakite and nestles in the back of the net.
    12/28/2013 5:37:00 PM
  • There's a big smile on Vincent Tan's face. The protests have died down and Cardiff are ahead. [niallquinn]

    12/28/2013 5:38:05 PM
  • There are banners all over Cardiff City Stadium calling for him to leave, but Vincent Tan is smiling right now!

    12/28/2013 5:38:33 PM

    Campbell breaks with purpose but Dossena gets back to nick the ball off his toes.
    12/28/2013 5:46:50 PM
  • HULL 6-0 FULHAM REACTION [fulham]
    Rene Meulensteen was at a loss to explain what happened to his Fulham side


    I have to say, in the sequence of games we have had - and we have had some tough games - I didn't see it coming at all... I have been saying that they have been fantastic and I can't fault the players for anything and in terms of performances we haven't got results that we deserved. This isn't like that.


    12/28/2013 5:47:21 PM
  • HULL 6-0 FULHAM REACTION [hull]
    Tom Huddlestone can now cut his hair after ending a three-year goal drought against Fulham
    12/28/2013 5:48:18 PM
  • DID TOM'S MUM PREDICT THE FUTURE? [twitter]
    Here's what Mother Huddlestone Tweeted earlier today!

    12/28/2013 5:49:10 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    [yellow-card]Mutch gets the better of Cattermole and the Sunderland midfielder is booked for fouling him.
    12/28/2013 5:50:49 PM
  • MAN CITY 1-0 C PALACE REACTION [crystalpalace]
    Tony Pulis feels his side can take a lot of positives from their narrow defeat
    I am pleased [with the performance], we've had two away games and we went to Aston Villa, who were desperate for the points, and then follow it up and come to Manchester City, and put in a performance like that, I can't criticise the players.

    12/28/2013 5:51:35 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    Noone swings a cracking ball into the area but Caulker can only direct his header straight at Mannone having done well to get on the end of the cross.
    12/28/2013 5:53:35 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND [cardiff]
    It's fair to say that Malky Mackay's sacking hasn't gone down too well with the supporters...
    12/28/2013 5:55:07 PM
  • MAN CITY 1-0 C PALACE REACTION [manchestercity]
    Manuel Pellegrini blamed fixture congestion and Crystal Palace's approach for his side's struggles...

  • MAN CITY PLAYERS ON TWITTER [twitter]

    12/28/2013 5:59:41 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    CHANCE! Mutch curls an inviting cross into the box and Campbell directs his diving, glancing header just past the post. Really good passage of play from the home side.
    12/28/2013 5:59:51 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    Cardiff have their tails up at the moment, Noone this time trying his luck with an effort from distance that Mannone keeps out.
    12/28/2013 6:02:02 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    Gus Poyet's side respond well though and create their best chance of the game. Ki's low shot is kept out well by keeper Marshall and Altidore is unable to convert the rebound at the far post.
    12/28/2013 6:03:39 PM
  • That's the first real decent moment of the game for Sunderland. It just all happens too quickly for Altidore. What looks simple in slow motion became too difficult in real time. [niallquinn]

    12/28/2013 6:03:49 PM
  • Altidore fails to convert at the far post with the goal gaping.

    12/28/2013 6:03:57 PM
  • MAN CITY 1-0 C PALACE REACTION [crystalpalace]
    Tony Pulis says he was happy with his players despite the loss this afternoon
    12/28/2013 6:05:45 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    [sunderland]Decent contest developing here, with Borini forcing a good save out of Marshall to keep Cardiff in the lead.
    12/28/2013 6:07:08 PM
  • David Kerslake will be really pleased with the pace and momentum that Cardiff have played at. Sunderland will have to buck up their ideas to get back into this.[niallquinn]

    12/28/2013 6:12:11 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    [save]Great stop from Marshall low to his right to keep out a goalbound shot from Borini.
    12/28/2013 6:13:37 PM
  • Head in hands time for Borini as Marshall denies his goalbound effort

    12/28/2013 6:13:48 PM
  • TAN CAM: The Cardiff owner has been looking at that big gold watch. He looks like he wants the ref to hurry up and blow for half-time.

    12/28/2013 6:15:38 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    Just one minute of added time to be played in the first half.
    12/28/2013 6:16:20 PM
  • CARDIFF 1-0 SUNDERLAND
    [half-time]That's it. Vincent Tan disappears inside his executive box for a mug of tea and a bourbon and all appears well in his world. Join us after the break to see if Cardiff can hold on for three valuable points.
    12/28/2013 6:18:51 PM
  • There's talk of crisis about Cardiff, but at the moment it's Mutch ado about nothing... [davidjones]

    12/28/2013 6:19:07 PM
  • Here are the half-time match stats. Cardiff have edged it so far, but Sunderland looked strong as that half drew to a close.

  • RAY WILKINS' HALF-TIME VERDICT
    Gustavo will be absolutely fuming. Cardiff have done very well, but Sunderland have been very, very poor. They haven't passed the ball at all and they are lacking movement. The whole thing about Sunderland has been rather average. [raywilkins]

    12/28/2013 6:24:39 PM
  • NORWICH 0-1 MAN UTD REACTION [manchesterunited]
    David Moyes says Danny Welbeck was the difference in Man Untied's win over Norwich
