Weekend Live! (28-30 March)

  • [goal]GOAL! MAN UTD 2-1 VILLA (Rooney pen)
    No saving this. Rooney makes it clear where he's putting the penalty as he opens his body on the run-up, but it's hitting the inside side-netting before Guzan can get close
    3/29/2014 1:30:36 PM
  • MAN UTD 2-1 VILLA
    Should Leandro Bacuna have been shown a red card for fouling Juan Mata when he was about to pull the trigger? Tony Cottee says not...
    Juan Mata would have got a shot in on goal, but I don't think it was a sending-off. It was just a yellow card.  [tonycottee]

    3/29/2014 1:32:34 PM
  • MAN UTD 2-1 VILLA[half-time]
    Far from convincing, but where Westwood's early goal might have brought about mutiny at Old Trafford, United have instead rallied round and go into the break ahead thanks to two more from their top earner
    3/29/2014 1:33:08 PM
  • MAN UTD 2-1 VILLA
    Two Wayne Rooney goals have turned things around at Old Trafford. Those strikes are covering over the cracks a little, though. [manchesterunited]
    3/29/2014 1:34:29 PM
  • BURNLEY 0-1 LEICESTER [leicester]
    Wood set up Leicester's opener and might have had one himself had he not been leaning back when he volleyed that one. Burnley are going to have to gamble here - Barnes far too isolated - and sure enough, they're about to bring on Ross Wallace... Junior Stanislas jogs off.

  • [betting] Manchester United will be looking to build on their lead in the second-half. We've price boosted them to 7/1 to win 4-1, while Shinji Kagawa is 11/1 to score the next goal. Bet on the game here.

    3/29/2014 1:40:04 PM
  • BURNLEY 0-1 LEICESTER [leicester]
    Leicester should be further ahead but Heaton stands, arms spread, at the near post and denies Wood. Schlupp made that opening with a dart down the left. The board's up again and it's Nugent's number in lights- on comes Gary Taylor-Fletcher.
    3/29/2014 1:43:55 PM
  • MAN UTD 2-1 VILLA[substitution]
    Moyes making a change at the start of the second half - Carrick for Rafael. Is that down to injury or the sometimes rash Rafael's yellow card? Either way Carrick goes to centre-half and Jones trots over to the right
    3/29/2014 1:48:30 PM
  • STOKE v HULL [stoke]
    We'll keep you up to date on the early games, but we've also got half an eye on the 3pm kick-offs. We've just spoke to Asmir Begovic at the Britannia
    3/29/2014 1:49:39 PM
  • BURNLEY 0-1 LEICESTER [burnley]
    That's a decent hit from Kightly but the height's comfortable enough for Schmeichel to push away.
    3/29/2014 1:50:59 PM
  • GOAL! BURNLEY 0-2 LEICESTER (Wood 78) [goal]
    What a goal! Really! It comes from a Knockaert clearance down the channel and Wood shrugs off his marker before hitting a dipping half-volley that gives Heaton - diving at full stretch - absolutely no chance.
    3/29/2014 1:51:50 PM
  • MAN UTD 2-1 VILLA WHAT A MISS!
    Villa should be level, and it's Benteke who's guilty of an awful miss. Buttner charges out looking for offside, but Benteke is clearly on as he chests down Westwood's pass only to completely miscue his volley from the six-yard line
    3/29/2014 1:53:08 PM
  • MAN UTD 2-1 VILLA
    Again United's response is a decent one, and again Vlaar has to be alert to cut out a couple dangerous crosses as first Kagawa and then Fellaini lurk on his blindside
    3/29/2014 1:55:31 PM
  • Here's how far Heaton was to that blinding Chris Wood goal. Leicester are going six points clear of their closest rivals at the top.

    3/29/2014 1:56:34 PM
  • SOUTHAMPTON v NEWCASTLE [newcastle]
    They've let him in! Alan Pardew is allowed to manage from a stadium today, but the Newcastle boss is still banned from the touchline.
    3/29/2014 1:56:59 PM
  • MAN UTD 2-1 VILLA CLOSE!
    Not altogether certain whether this goes down as a chance missed or a great effort from Benteke, who gets up so high to meet Albrighton's cross only to clear the crossbar by six inches. Albrighton's attacking Buttner at every opportunity - obviously well aware the left-back's on a booking
    3/29/2014 1:57:30 PM
  • [goa]GOAL! MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA (Mata)
    They've ridden their luck a bit since the break but here's breathing space for United thanks to Mata's first goal for the club. Fellaini makes a menace of himself in the Villa box as the ball bobbles about and - by hook or by crook - funnels the ball to Mata, who finishes right-footed from the six-yard line. Won't win goal of the month, but no matter
    3/29/2014 2:00:02 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    Tony Cottee says Paul Lambert will be frustrated by his side's inability to both shoot and tackle...
    What a scrappy goal. The defending is awful from Villa. Oh, how they are going to rue those Benteke misses. [tonycottee]

    3/29/2014 2:04:59 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    Fellaini might have been sent off against Villa for a flailing arm, and he's all gangly limbs again here as Vlaar's nose comes off worse in a collision with the big Belgian's right hand. Certainly clumsy, but no more than that in the view of the ref
    3/29/2014 2:05:02 PM
  • BURNLEY 0-2 LEICESTER [added-minutes]
    Three extra ones at Turf Moor but this game's done and dusted. That's cheeky from David Nugent, who jumps out of the dugout and juggles the ball when it goes out of touch before volleying it back. 
    3/29/2014 2:06:37 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    United fans have been screaming for a Villa booking for some time, and now they have one as Young beats Bertrand to a headed clearance and toes the ball away before colliding with the defender. Yellow for Bertrand
    3/29/2014 2:06:55 PM

    3/29/2014 2:07:10 PM
  • BURNLEY 0-2 LEICESTER [full-time]
    Nigel Pearson clambers down from his place in the stands to slap a few backs - his side are heading back to the Premier League after a decade away. They're now six points clear of today's opponents - with a game in hand to boot - and 16 ahead of third place.
    3/29/2014 2:09:11 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    A large number of United fans currently telling the minority where they can stick their banner. It's not on the back of a plane...

    3/29/2014 2:10:38 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA NO PENALTY!
    Benteke looks baffled as he bundles his way onto a loose ball in the United box and tumbles under a Vidic challenge. Ref Atkinson isn't interested, but Vidic is taking a chance sticking his arm out in Benteke's direction
    3/29/2014 2:10:40 PM
  • CHELSEA TEAM NEWS
    Team to play Crystal Palace: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Matic, Lampard, Schurrle, Hazard, Torres [chelsea]

    3/29/2014 2:11:41 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    Januzaj is going to get the last 22 minutes here as Moyes hooks Kagawa. The usual mixed bag from Kagawa - lovely ball for Rooney's first
    3/29/2014 2:11:47 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    Januzaj is straight into the action, sidling effortlessly along the Villa box and forcing Guzan to hold a low right-footer
    3/29/2014 2:12:37 PM
  • SOUTHAMPTON TEAM NEWS

  • Burnley beaten for the first time in 17 - can QPR fray some nerves with a win over Blackpool?

  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    Villa change now - Tonev for Agbonlahor, who has run around a lot to negligible effect
    3/29/2014 2:13:47 PM
  • BURNLEY 0-2 LEICESTER REACTION [leicester]
    Here's goalscorer Chris Wood, whose second-half thumper is definitely one to watch later on...
    We haven't got there yet - we've a few games to go and hopefully a few more wins to make it certain. We'll enjoy today - it was a top-of-the-table clash and it's great to go home with three points.

    3/29/2014 2:13:50 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA[save] SAVE!
    Rooney looks nailed on for the hat-trick as he kills a long pass, steps inside a challenge and fetches up facing the whites of Guzan's eyes. He should score, truth be told, but a firm strike is too close to the keeper
    3/29/2014 2:14:45 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    Old Trafford up to acclaim Rooney as he's hooked with the Bayern game in mind. Job done anyway, you have to think, and on comes Hernandez
    3/29/2014 2:18:29 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA
    Here's a first sighting of Juan Mata celebrating scoring a Premier League goal in a Manchester United shirt. [manchesterunited]
    3/29/2014 2:18:36 PM
  • MAN UTD 3-1 VILLA MISS!
    Dear dear and thrice dear. Benteke's had enough chances for a hat-trick this half, and another goes begging here. A dawdling Jones plays him onside as a cross comes in from the left, but for the second time it's a complete fresh-air shot and for a second time united escape
