  • MAN CITY 2-1 LIVERPOOL [football]

    City corner is met by Kompany who is having a right old wrestling match from set-pieces with Skrtel but the ball is lifted high into the air and Mignolet easily gathers

    12/26/2013 6:44:20 PM
  • Malky Mackay insists he still does not know when he will hold critical talks with owner Vincent Tan which could decide whether he remains as manager of Cardiff. [cardiff] 

    12/26/2013 6:45:39 PM
  • SAVE!!!! MAN CITY 2-1 LIVERPOOL [football]

    Cheeky chip from Negredo is better than the one in scored with in the first half but Mignolet does much better this time and holds the ball as it drops towards the goal

    12/26/2013 6:47:37 PM
  • BLOCK!!!! MAN CITY 2-1 LIVERPOOL [football]
    Silva whacks in a shot but Lucas is across with a decent block - great spell of pressure from City but Reds still look a massive threat on the break
    12/26/2013 6:52:07 PM
  • MAN CITY 2-1 LIVERPOOL [football]
    Bad error from Sakho who is having a mare but he's rescued by Mignolet who whacks it clear as Negredo closes in - Johnson is in the book for a daft trip on Kolarov. 
    12/26/2013 6:54:59 PM
    Reds hook Coutinho off and on comes Moses - we now have Jesus and Moses on the pitch!!!
    12/26/2013 6:57:26 PM
    Liverpool gradually drifting as the minutes pass and are now 12/1 to win and 7/2 to salvage a draw with substitute Moses 16/1 to score next.
    Bet in-play here.
    12/26/2013 6:58:47 PM
    Great chance to get back in it but Johnson fluffs his lines and hits it straight at Hart - Milner is on for Nasri as City make a change
    12/26/2013 6:59:02 PM
    Brilliant ball from Suarez to Sterling who arrives unmarked into the box and looks a dead cert to score but he can't even hit the target with the goal at his mercy - what a terrible miss
    12/26/2013 7:01:03 PM
  • TWISTER!!!! MAN CITY 2-1 LIVERPOOL [football]

    Lescott is destroyed by Suarez who turns him inside out - the cross is a decent one but City get it clear. Negredo is off and Dzeko is on for City. Lescott makes a wild tackle on Suarez who wants a penalty - ref doesn't agree. It's end to end stuff

    12/26/2013 7:06:10 PM

    12/26/2013 7:08:21 PM
  • The very latest news brought to you by the UK's leading sports channel.

    12/27/2013 3:38:08 PM
  • [liverpool]Liverpool skipper edging closer to full fitness and a return to Premier League action. We'll have the full team news update for the Reds ahead of their trip to Chelsea on Sunday shortly.

    12/27/2013 3:46:08 PM
  • [norwich]Norwich will be without suspended centre-half Michael Turner for Saturday's Premier League clash against Manchester United at Carrow Road. Midfielder Jonathan Howson (back) remains doubtful. Wingers Anthony Pilkington (hamstring) and Elliott Bennett (knee) are still sidelined, along with midfielder Alexander Tettey (ankle).

    Michael Turner: Defender is due to serve a ban 

    12/27/2013 3:47:52 PM
  • [skysportsnews]Cardiff will be guided by caretaker bosses when they play host to Sunderland on Saturday - a game you can watch live on Sky Sports 1 HD. Should be a lively affair on and off the field.

    12/27/2013 3:51:06 PM
  • [liverpool]Liverpool will be without forward Victor Moses for their Premier League trip to Chelsea on Sunday due to the terms of his loan from the Londoners. That leaves the Reds short on numbers with captain Steven Gerrard and defender Jon Flanagan (both hamstring) not ready to return. Manager Brendan Rodgers could again bolster his squad with youth or reserve team players. Striker Daniel Sturridge (ankle) and defender Jose Enrique (knee) are also still on the sidelines.

    Victor Moses: Terms of loan prevent him facing parent club 

    12/27/2013 3:59:36 PM
  • [chelsea]One man hoping to gun down Liverpool on Sunday will be their former frontman Fernando Torres. When the Spaniard first arrived in England more than six years ago, he became arguably the most lethal goalscorer on the planet. But injuries and a loss of confidence mean he is now one of the biggest transfer flops in history. We pinpoint when he lost his mojo...

    12/27/2013 4:10:28 PM
  • [cardiff]Cardiff owner Vincent Tan has been having his say on recent events in South Wales and has admitted in a statement that he would have liked to see Malky Mackay's dismissal handled better.
    There has been a good deal of publicity generated by and about Mr Malky Mackay over the last few months. Indeed far too much dirty linen has been exposed to the public gaze. But, I stress, not by me. Indeed, I have deliberately not responded to this, hoping that the Club can be judged on its football rather than personalised arguments about who said what to whom.
    12/27/2013 4:21:07 PM
  • [westbrom]Malky Mackay has been linked with the vacant managerial post at West Brom, which would offer him an immediate return to a Premier League dugout, and the Baggies claim they are closing on an appointment.

    12/27/2013 4:25:37 PM
  • [liverpool]Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was not a happy man after seeing his side beaten 2-1 at Manchester City on Boxing Day, but he is unfazed by the threat of an FA charge hanging over his side for comments he made about the appointment of referee Lee Mason.
    I was only speaking open and honestly, after the game. I think the FA and the referees' association know that I'm someone that engages in supporting the referees.
    12/27/2013 4:31:42 PM
  • [stoke]Stoke boss Mark Hughes in hot water for his actions during a 5-1 defeat for his side at Newcastle on Boxing Day.

    12/27/2013 4:37:07 PM
  • [paulmerson]Paul Merson has dusted off his crystal ball and attempted to distinguish the festive winners from the losers in his latest Premier League predictions column. Merse sees Manchester United, Arsenal and Sunderland ending the calendar year on a high, but sees Liverpool and Chelsea settling for a point apiece in their Super Sunday clash at Stamford Bridge.
    12/27/2013 4:41:06 PM
  • [tottenham]Having been shown the door by Chelsea and Tottenham, it perhaps comes as no surprise to hear Andre Villas-Boas hinting that his next managerial post will be away from English shores. 
    This is now a time of reflection for me and my staff and for repositioning our careers. Nevertheless, England was a great experience.
    12/27/2013 4:54:59 PM
  • Cole celebrates after giving West Ham the perfect start inside the first four minutes.

    12/28/2013 12:51:43 PM
  • That's exactly what they needed. It had been a nervous start for West Ham. [alansmith]

    12/28/2013 12:52:59 PM
  • The West Ham defensive curse strikes again as Tomkins trudges off and is replaced by Demel

    12/28/2013 12:56:52 PM
  • [substitution]WEST HAM 1-0 WEST BROM
    Demel replaces Tomkins who appears to have a sore groin and limps off.
    12/28/2013 12:57:06 PM
    West Ham don’t tend to score many and Sky Bet make them 8/1 to see out a 1-0 win having opened the scoring on four minutes. They’re 8/13 for the win with the Baggies out to 4/1.
    12/28/2013 12:59:11 PM

    12/28/2013 1:03:00 PM
  • [westbrom]WEST HAM 1-0 WEST BROM
    Anelka tries to set up Morrison who can only back heel the ball to Hammers keeper Jaaskelainen. But a promising move for the Baggies.
    12/28/2013 1:04:52 PM
  • [westham]WEST HAM 1-0 WEST BROM
    A lively end-to-end game so far and, as things stand, the Hammers would be level with the visitors on points – but still behind on goal difference. Baggies enjoying 60% of possession through 20 minutes.
    12/28/2013 1:07:09 PM
  • No Christmas Carroll... West Ham's main striker is still unavailable and is watching on from the stands once again this lunchtime.

    12/28/2013 1:08:43 PM
  • [westham]WEST HAM 1-0 WEST BROM
    A Jarvis corner is flicked over by Carlton Cole under pressure from Olsson.
    12/28/2013 1:11:15 PM
  • [westham]WEST HAM 1-0 WEST BROM
    A misunderstanding between Nolan and Carlton Cole ruins a promising break by the hosts.
    12/28/2013 1:14:53 PM
  • Another decent chance goes begging as Demel strikes the post after a Cole header across goal. Sam Allardyce's team are on top here.

    12/28/2013 1:17:54 PM
  • [westham]WEST HAM 1-0 WEST BROM
    Substitute Demel swivels on the spot to clip a shot against the outside of the post after Carlton flicks on namesake Joe’s dinky cross.
    12/28/2013 1:18:35 PM
    The West Brom striker has been Tweeting from his sofa. Sadly for him, his side are 1-0 down.

    12/28/2013 1:21:23 PM
  • [free-kick]WEST HAM 1-0 WEST BROM
    A 25-yarder from Noble curls narrowly wide – ‘not too far away’ says Sky Sports commentator Alan Smith.
    12/28/2013 1:21:58 PM
  • The two managers greet each other before kick-off.....

    12/28/2013 1:23:42 PM
    Sky Sports commentator Alan Smith has questioned West Brom's tactics here...
    You wonder whether Keith Downing might think about changng the system at half-time and going from three at the back to a regular back four. There's one or two attacking players he could add to the mix. [alansmith]

    12/28/2013 1:24:24 PM
  • [goal]GOAL! WEST HAM 1-1 WEST BROM (Anelka 40)
    The Frenchman runs on to Brunt's slide rule pass to slip the ball past the advancing Jaaskelainen, a goal that arrives very much against the run of play.
    12/28/2013 1:26:05 PM
    He never looked like missing. Once faced with that one-on-one he was coolness personified. [alansmith]

    12/28/2013 1:27:09 PM
  • Nicolas Anelka slots home. That's his first goal for West Brom, making it six different clubs that he has scored for in the Premier League.

    12/28/2013 1:28:07 PM
