Weekend Live! (March 14-16)

  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[kick-off]
    Off and running at Villa Park...
    3/15/2014 5:30:46 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[chelsea]
    Early stoppage as Willian comes off worse from a thudding challenge with Baker, who's shown up in his best Olof Mellberg beard. The wind's fairly taken from Willian's sails but he looks like he'll continue
    3/15/2014 5:32:26 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[yellow-card]
    Baker winded Willian fair and square earlier, but his is an altogether more...illegal...challenge as he catches a turning Torres on the ankle. In the book he goes

  • Peter Odemwingie reflects on an impressive win for Stoke against West Ham

    3/15/2014 5:39:12 PM
    Willian looks well over that early whack and gets away the game's first shot - a looping, deflected one straight at Guzan. Villa have a go back, Benteke skewing a header well wide. Simmering after a sluggish start

    Chelsea enjoy a decent couple of minutes, Torres mistiming his jump from Oscar's cross and Willian rippling the wrong side of the net with a better long-range hit. At the other end El Ahmadi clears Cech's bar, Twickenham-style
    3/15/2014 5:43:59 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[chelsea]
    Nice football from the visitors, Oscar using Willian as a bouncing board and feeding an early shot a foot past Guzan's far post. Never going in, but the idea's a sound one
    3/15/2014 5:46:50 PM
    Villa holding a mighty high line when the ball's in Chelsea's half, and twice Torres has got close to making a run in behind. One to keep an eye on...
    3/15/2014 5:50:03 PM
  • SAINTS 4-2 NORWICH [southampton]
    Southampton came out on top against a resilient Norwich side

    3/15/2014 5:50:19 PM
  • 3/15/2014 5:50:32 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[yellow-card]
    Willian's the second man in the book for clattering El Ahmadi late just inside the Chelsea half. Villa send up the big men, but Bacuna's delivery falls well short
    3/15/2014 5:55:15 PM
    West Brom secured a vital three points at Swansea to take them just above the relegation zone in 16th. Goalkeeper Ben Foster was delighted for his manager. [westbrom]

    3/15/2014 5:57:26 PM
  • 3/15/2014 5:57:52 PM
    Torres does get beyond the Villa defence this time as Bennett keeps him onside, but Delph does his donkey-work admirably to get back and cut out the cross
    3/15/2014 5:59:27 PM
    Seamus Coleman's injury-time winner for Everton leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's struggling in 19th place

    3/15/2014 6:05:24 PM
    Real lull in the play as both sides' passing goes to pot. Chelsea step up the pace as Torres darts onto Hazard's pass only to attempt a wildly optimistic shot from close to the goal-line. Never ruffling Guzan's cool
    3/15/2014 6:06:05 PM
    Hazard must-have iron-clad calf muscles as he survives Delph's buffeting from behind to sidle infield in search of a killer pass. None available
    3/15/2014 6:08:24 PM
  • [betting] Who will break the deadlock at Villa Park? Chelsea gradually drifting out but still odds-on with Aston Villa 5/1 for the victory. Bet in-play here.

    3/15/2014 6:08:40 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[astonvilla] CLOSE!
    Reallly bright attempt from Benteke, who takes on a first-time volley from the edge of the box and briefly has Cech clambering across his goal-line in a panic before the ball skids the wrong side of a post
    3/15/2014 6:09:47 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA NO GOAL![chelsea]
    Chelsea are certain they have the lead as Terry flicks on a corner for Matic, who takes the ball down and squeezes a finish between Guzan and the post. Ref Chris Foy points to the centre circle, but his linesman has other ideas and flags for handball against Matic. After several replays it looks like a tremendous spot from a long way away, but it's a decision open to debate
    3/15/2014 6:12:33 PM
  • Here's the handball call that meant Chelsea's goal was disallowed.

    3/15/2014 6:12:41 PM
    Matic is getting hold of the midfield now, flicking a pass through for Torres, who opts to cut back inside rather than pull away from the defence. Bad decision as he's crowded out
    3/15/2014 6:15:02 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[yellow-card]
    Villa Park gulps as Bennett brings a brutal end to Ramires' run and ref Foy reaches for his pocket. There's an argument that Bennett's the last man, but the ref rules Vlaar is close enough to cover and settles for a booking
    3/15/2014 6:16:20 PM
  • [half-time]VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA
    The half ends with Benteke aiming an instinctive header right at Cech. Plenty of promising moments for Villa even if Chelsea are the classier team. We might hear more about that Matic 'goal' if the game remains like this

    3/15/2014 6:20:02 PM
  • [betting] Sky Bet have enhanced Benteke from 10/1 to 12/1 to break the deadlock during the break. Bet in-play here.

    3/15/2014 6:24:26 PM
  • The game is still tight but Chelsea have had a few chances but the game has been very much half and half.
    [chelsea] Gianfranco Zola is watching Aston Villa v Chelsea in the SNF studio and hasn't been particularly impressed with the first half.
    3/15/2014 6:25:40 PM
  • Benteke is back to his best now, he had a rough period around Christmas but he's the one player on the pitch that can make something happen.
    [jamieredknapp] Goalless at Villa Park but Chelsea scored four past Spurs in the second half last weekend - can they do it again?
    3/15/2014 6:27:25 PM

  • The boys in the studio have been admiring the sunset behind Villa Park - Let's have some goals!

    3/15/2014 6:33:01 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[kick-off]
    We're away again. There's a nine-point lead at the top on offer if Chelsea can find a way through this half...
    3/15/2014 6:34:01 PM
  • West Ham's Kevin Nolan wasn't happy with decisions in their 3-1 loss to Stoke today.

    3/15/2014 6:36:30 PM
  • Meanwhile, Stoke gagger Mark Huges was delighted with his team's performance.

    3/15/2014 6:37:41 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[chelsea]
    Already more urgency about Chelsea's attacking work, and an Ivanovic ball from the right causes mayhem in the Villa box. Hazard eventually gets it under control and drops the shoulder before sending over a cross which rebounds off El Ahmadi and forces Guzan to stop one-handed

    3/15/2014 6:39:37 PM
    Villa barely taking a forward step at the minute and, ominously for the home fans, Hazard is getting on the ball more and more in claret-and-blue territory. A short but sweet pass gives Willian a bit of space, but Villa scrabble to shut it down and manage the job well
    3/15/2014 6:42:28 PM
    Is extra super this weekend... We've got two HUGE derbies live on Sky Sports and you don't have to miss a kick of Manchester United v Liverpool or Arsenal v Tottenham by getting hold of a NOW TV Day Pass. To whet your appetite for these two stonkers we've got some awesome videos starting with an exclusive interview Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard...

    3/15/2014 6:48:03 PM
  • Steven Gerrard talks to Sky Sports' Rob Palmer about Liverpool's season so far ahead of their clash with Manchester Utd on Sunday.

    3/15/2014 6:48:15 PM
    Credit to Villa, they're still looking pretty stout at the back, Delph denying Ivanovic at the expense of a corner this time. Comes to nothing, but Villa need to throw something back at some point here
    3/15/2014 6:49:27 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[chelsea] CHANCE!
    Villa's concentration lapses for the first time as Oscar is left in yards of space to collect a quickly-worked corner and get a shot in. Luckily for the daydreaming defence the Brazilian can only hit a tame one at Guzan
    3/15/2014 6:50:44 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[astonvilla] CHANCE!
    Out of nothing Villa find a lovely move and go within a whisker of taking the lead. Agbonlahor, Benteke and Weimann are all involved, the latter eventually cutting a pass back for Benteke to side-foot just past the post from 18 yards
    3/15/2014 6:55:10 PM
  • VILLA 0-0 CHELSEA[yellow-card]
    Adrenaline still up, Benteke swipes at Ramires from behind and goes in the book. Chelsea, meanwhile, now have Schurrle on for Oscar and Ba on for Torres
    3/15/2014 6:56:14 PM
    Now then...the dynamic is changed completely as a backtracking William helps an off-balance Delph to the ground and collects a second booking. Chelsea will argue it's a soft one, ref Foy will say Delph was breaking dangerously into Chelsea territory. Whatever the rights and wrongs, Chelsea will play the final 20 minutes a man short
