  • FANTASY FOOTBALL
    [betting]Time is running out to make the changes to your Sky Sports Fantasy Football team. Here our Fantasy Football scout picks Swansea's Wilfried Bony as a player to consider ahead of a double week of action
    Swansea are one of the teams with back-to-back home matches and, indeed, ones which they are expected to win, with Crystal Palace and QPR visiting. Their Christmas run is also relatively favourable, making Bony a tempting proposition. The Ivory Coast forward’s strike at Manchester City, a fifth in his last six appearances, means he is the highest scoring Premier League player in the calendar year with 17 goals. 
    Update your team before 12.45pm today

  • MERSON'S PREDICTION [paulmerson]
    Sunderland beat Chelsea in two of their three meetings last season. Can they spring another surprise? Paul Merson doesn't think so. He's predicting a 3-0 win for the visitors. Read all of his predictions here. 
    I think Sunderland will be well out of their depth here. Chelsea are so good at the moment, it’s just phenomenal. Sunderland can play at 100 miles an hour and they’ll just get picked off.

    11/29/2014 12:26:23 PM
  • Chelsea's Azpilicueta is feeling confident too...[chelsea]

    11/29/2014 12:27:37 PM
  • CHARLTON 0-0 IPSWICH [charlton]
    MISS! Decent chance for Harriott from the edge of the box but he has dragged his shot wide - Charlton man gets a second chance but he batters his shot straight at Bialkowski in the Ipswich goal

    11/29/2014 12:31:43 PM
  • CHARLTON 0-0 IPSWICH [charlton]
    Great ball from Mears who flashes the ball over from the left wing - Ben Haim gets a toe to the ball and Charlton get it clear but only just he didn't really know where the ball was  

    11/29/2014 12:33:59 PM
  • CLINICAL COSTA [chelsea]
    Of course, Sunderland will have to cope with the might of Diego Costa tonight. The striker has netted a remarkable 11 goals in his first 10 games in the Premier League. We took a look behind the stats to compare him with some of the division's best-ever strikers... read our feature here.

    11/29/2014 12:36:42 PM
  • BURNLEY V ASTON VILLA [burnley]
    Burnley host Aston Villa on Saturday at Turf Moor, with the Clarets bidding to secure their third consecutive Premier League victory. Villa, by contrast, have endured a dismal run of form and are without a win in eight Premier League games. Paul Lambert’s side, however, will be looking to build on Monday night’s positive result at Villa Park where they held high-flying Southampton to a 1-1 draw.

  • CHARLTON 0-0 IPSWICH [charlton]
    MISS! Harriott tests the keeper with an effort from outside the box after a great header from Vetokele to play him in and then seconds later he pulls his right foot effort wide - Charlton on top and pressing hard now
     

    11/29/2014 12:41:36 PM
  • CHARLTON 0-0 IPSWICH [charlton]
    Fox fires over a cross that Chambers makes a right mess of - lucky for Ipswich the ball skips across the face of the goal with no Charlton man there to turn it home 
    11/29/2014 12:43:16 PM
  • CHARLTON 0-0 IPSWICH [charlton]
    OOOPS! Murphy lets fly with a great left-foot effort from the edge of the area - Pope makes a real mess of trying to save it but manages to keep the ball out and turn it away for a corner that Ipswich clear
    11/29/2014 12:45:19 PM
  • [kick-off]WEST BROM 0-0 ARSENAL
    We're off at the Hawthorns. Arsenal get us started and retain possession....
    11/29/2014 12:45:31 PM
  • LIVERPOOL V STOKE [liverpool]
    Liverpool will be hoping to end a disappointing month on a winning note when they host Stoke City at Anfield on Saturday. The Reds have lost all three Premier League matches they have played in November so far and also failed to win either of their two Champions League outings. They are currently in the worst run of form since Brendan Rodgers was appointed manager in the summer of 2012 and are already 16 points behind leaders Chelsea. Stoke, though, have failed to win in their last 29 league visits to Anfield, dating back to 1959, and have not even scored in a league game there since 1983.
    11/29/2014 12:45:31 PM

  • [arsenal]WEST BROM 0-0 ARSENAL
    Chance! Cazorla has space on the edge and fires a finger-stinger at Ben Foster, who saves well.
    11/29/2014 12:47:59 PM
  • MAN UTD V HULL [manchesterunited]
    Manchester United entertain Hull City at Old Trafford hoping to build on last weekend's victory away at Arsenal and consolidate a top-four place. Louis van Gaal's men recovered from the defeat to rivals Manchester City at the start of the month by claiming back-to-back wins against Crystal Palace and at the Emirates, and the Red Devils will look to end the month in winning fashion. Former United captain Steve Bruce brings his Hull side to the Theatre of Dreams in a game which marks his 700th outing as a manager - but the Tigers are without a win in five league games.

  • QPR V LEICESTER [qpr]
    Two of the Premier League’s bottom three clubs meet at Loftus Road on Saturday when QPR entertain Leicester City. The Hoops prop up the table after taking just eight points from their opening 12 matches, with all of those points coming at Loftus Road. In fact, Harry Redknapp’s side have lost just one of their last five matches at home and twice took the lead against Manchester City in their last outing in west London before drawing 2-2. Leicester are just two places and two points above QPR following a dismal run of form that has seen them fail to score since the start of October.

  • CHARLTON 0-0 IPSWICH [charlton]
    SAVE! Coquelin has a great chance to open the scoring as Gudmundsson plays him in but he is denied at close range by Bialkowski - good stop but he should have scored there

    11/29/2014 12:50:59 PM
  • [arsenal]WEST BROM 0-0 ARSENAL
    Chance! Alexis Sanchez runs at West Brom's back-four, who stand off, and he hits a low shot stopped by Ben Foster.
    11/29/2014 12:51:49 PM
  • SWANSEA V CRYSTAL PALACE [swansea]
    Swansea City will be looking for a third home win in a row when they host Crystal Palace. Garry Monk’s side have beaten Arsenal and Leicester City in their last outings at the Liberty Stadium and could climb into the top four with victory over Palace. Palace travel to south Wales on the back of their excellent 3-1 victory over Liverpool.
