Neither side able to dictate the game so far

West Ham enjoying slightly more of the ball, with 196 touches to 166 from Sunderland.

  • Everton 3 Burnley 1
  • Stoke 3 Hull 1
  • Sunderland 2 West Ham 2 
  • Watford 1 Swansea 0

4:57PM

Full-time! 

Sunderland 2 West Ham 2.The hosts desperately needed to win that, but it's only a draw and they are nine points from safety with only six matches to play. 

4:55PM

Aerial bombardment

Randolph collects Anichebe's cross shot, and it's still Sunderland 2 West Ham 2. A couple of minutes of added on time still to be played. 

4:54PM

Full-time whistles being blown

  • Crystal Palace 2 Leicester 2
  • Everton 3 Burnley 1
  • Stoke 3 Hull 1
  • Watford 1 Swansea 0

Red card!

Sunderland with a real chance as West Ham are reduced to 10 men - Sam Byram given his marching orders for a second yellow. 

And there'll be 10 minutes of added on time at the Stadium of Light! It's Sunderland 2 West Ham 2. 

4:52PM

It's all over at Goodison Park.

4:51PM

Full-time! Watford 1 Swansea 0

Sigurdsson has missed two good chances for Swansea, and they have been defeated at Watford. Agonising end to the game for the Swans, who remain in the bottom three, two points behind 17th-placed Hull. 

4:48PM

GOAL! Sunderland 2 West Ham 2 (Borini 90')

Borini's first touch as a substitute is to fire Sunderland level! Gibson fires a hopeful diagonal forward, Randolph flaps at it and ends up in no-man's land. The goalkeeper's punch lands at Borini's feet, and the Italian buries a tricky chance from the edge of the box past two West Ham defenders on the line. 

Sunderland 2 - 2 West Ham (Fabio Borini, 90 min) 4:45PM

Swansea pushing

But still they can't break Watford down. Will Hull losing, this would be a real missed opportunity for Clement's side if they come away from Vicarage Road with nothing. 

4:41PM

Oh dear

Okaka scores a wonderful bicycle kick for Watford, and celebrates wildly...before realising he's been flagged offside. Watford still lead Swansea 1-0. 

4:40PM

GOAL! Stoke 3 Hull 1 (Shaqiri 80')

What a hit that is! Arnautovic feeds Shaqiri about 30 yards out, and the Swiss maestro leathers a long-range strike that flies into the top corner. Game, set and match you would think now. Stoke lead 3-1 at the Bet365. 

Stoke 3 - 1 Hull (Xherdan Shaqiri, 80 min) 4:36PM

Late drama to come? 

Hull are piling on the pressure but trail at Stoke, while Palace v Leicester has turned into an absolute cracker. Benteke has gone close for the hosts, who look the more likely team to win it having been 2-0 down after 52 minutes. 

4:32PM

GOAL! Everton 3 Burnley 1 (Lukaku 74')

Lukaku takes Baines' pass on the half-turn, spins past Keane and buries a left-footed finish betone Keane. Brilliant stuff from Lukaku, and as it stands Everton are leapfrogging Arsenal and Manchester United into fifth position (albeit having played three matches more). 

Everton 3 - 1 Burnley (Romelu Lukaku, 74 min) 4:29PM

GOAL! Everton 2 Burnley 1 (Barkley/it may end up being a Mee own goal 71')

Mirallas pulls the ball back for Barkley, who shifts the ball onto his left foot and fires past Heaton thanks to deflections off two Burnley defenders. It's been a tough week for the Everton midfielder, and he celebrates like he means it. 

Everton 2 - 1 Burnley (Ben Mee, 71 min) 4:27PM

GOAL! Crystal Palace 2 Leicester 2 (Benteke 70')

Townsend does brilliantly down the left and stand s up a cross for Benteke, who climbs above Benalouane and nods beyond Schmeichel. Palace back level! 

Crystal Palace 2 - 2 Leicester (Christian Benteke, 70 min) 4:26PM

GOAL! Stoke 1 Hull 1 (Crouch 66')

Arnautovic pings a cross-field pass to Walters, who cuts inside and gets a cross in from the right to Crouch, who soars above the Hull defenders and buries a header across Jakupovic into the bottom corner. Lovely goal, and Stoke are back in front. Hull now just two points above Swansea as it stands. 

Stoke 2 - 1 Hull (Peter Crouch, 66 min) 4:22PM

Leicester pushing

Ward very nearly scores an own goal from Fuchs' long throw, but it remains Palace 1 Leicester 2. 

4:20PM

Opportunities going begging

Mirallas denied for Everton against Burnley, as Niasse misses a great chance to put Hull ahead at Stoke. 

4:18PM

What a lorra goals

A flurry of activity soon after half-time, with six goals in the five games. Jakupovic meanwhile has made a great save to deny Crouch at the Bet365, where it's Stoke 1 Hull 1. 

4:18PM

Neither side taking control of the game yet

Hull enjoying slightly more of the ball, with 404 touches to 374 from Stoke.

Stoke vs Hull 4:11PM

Crystal Palace 1 Leicester 2 (Cabaye 54')

Palace right back in it straight away as Cabaye scores for the second consecutive game with a low effort from about 10 yards out. 

Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Leicester (Yohan Cabaye, 54 min) 4:10PM

Crystal Palace 0 Leicester 2 (Vardy 52')

Vintage Leicester as Jamie Vardy is sent scampering clear on the counter-attack. He cuts inside and bends one into the corner with his left foot. Wayne Hennessey should have done better in the Palace goal, but great pace from Vardy. 

Crystal Palace 0 - 2 Leicester (Jamie Vardy, 52 min) 4:10PM

Stoke 1 Hull 1 (Maguire 51')

A well deserved equaliser as Harry Maguire volleys home from a corner after a few ricochets in the box. What a huge goal that could turn out to be for Hull, who move three points clear of Swansea in the live table. 

Stoke 1 - 1 Hull (Harry Maguire, 51 min) 4:09PM

The shot count is similar

Stoke and Hull are evenly matched in attack so far - the vistors have fired in nine shots to the hosts' seven.

Stoke vs Hull shots on goal 4:09PM

Everton 1 Burnley 1 (Vokes 52')

Robles concedes a penalty with a bonkers charge out of his box to being Vokes down. The Welshman picks himself up and strokes the penalty home, sending Robles the wrong way. 

Everton 1 - 1 Burnley (Sam Vokes, 52 min) 4:07PM

GOAL! Everton 1 Burnley 0 (Jagielka 49')

Jagielka scores for the third match running, having previously not scored since May 2015. It's an untidy one, as he scuffs home from a corner, but in any case Everton are in front. 

Everton 1 - 0 Burnley (Phil Jagielka, 49 min) 4:04PM

Sunderland 1 West Ham 2 (Collins 47')

Snodgrass whips in an inswinging corner from the right, and Collins bundles in a header to give West Ham the lead. Oh dear, Sunderland concede right at the start of the second half, just as they did against United last week. Moyes' team-talk working wonders again. 

Sunderland 1 - 2 West Ham (James Collins, 47 min) 4:03PM

The state of play

The half-time whistles have been sounded around the grounds. Here's what's happened so far:

Crystal Palace 0 Leicester 1 -Huth's sixth-minute header gave the visitors the lead. Zaha and Townsend have come close for Palace since, but Leicester good value for their lead. 

Everton 0 Burnley 0 - Chances for both sides in what's been an end to end game. Vokes has had two very presentable opportunities for Dyche's side. 

Stoke 1 Hull 0 - Since Arnautovic's sixth-minute goal, Hull have come storming back and have created plenty of chances. Markovic and Niasse have been wasteful though. Niasse also could have been sent off for raising his hands to Cameron when already on a booking. 

Sunderland 1 West Ham 1 - Kazri cancelled out Ayew's opener with a goal directly from a corner. Ayew has since suffered what looks like a serious knee injury. 

Watford 1 Swansea 0 - Clement's side were on top but Capoue's sixth goal of the season shortly before half-time seperates the sides. Mawson badly at fault for the goal. 

Khazri

GOAL! Watford 1 Swansea (Capoue 42')

Oh dear, Mawson slips to gift Capoue a clear run on goal. The Frenchman's shot is saved, but the rebound drops kindly for him and he lashes home to put Watford in front! You can hear the cheers coming from east Yorkshire! 

Watford 1 - 0 Swansea (Etienne Capoue, 42 min) 3:42PM

The shot count is similar

Everton and Burnley are evenly matched in attack so far - the home side have fired in nine shots to the visitors' nine.

Miss: Everton 0 - 0 Burnley (Romelu Lukaku, 37 min) 3:37PM

Decent save Heaton

The Burnley keeper gets down low to his right to keep out Holgate's low effort. Still 0-0 at Goodison. 

3:35PM

Hull the big losers at the moment

They trail Stoke 1-0, while 18th-placed Swansea are closing the gap to them by one point as it stands with their 0-0 draw at Watford. 

3:34PM

Burnley holding their own

Everton have faded the last 10 or so minutes, and Vokes goes one on one with Robles, but the keeper makes the save with his chest. Burnley could, and probably should, be ahead. 

Burnley

3:32PM

No breakthrough for Swansea

Clement's side have been on top at Watford, but it remains goalless. Ki's low shot from about 12 yards is held by Gomes. It's still 0-0. 

3:30PM

More Hull chances

Markovic has missed a couple of opportunities for Hull, who are piling on the pressure at Stoke. Still Stoke 1 Hull 0.

Crystal Palace can't make their domination of the ball count

For all their possession, the hosts still trail to Leicester.

Crystal Palace vs Leicester 3:27PM

GOAL! Sunderland 1 West Ham 1 (Khazri 26')

Would you believe it, Sunderland have done a goal! After seven matches without scoring, Moyes' side finally get the ball in the back of the net. Khazri's corner goes all the way in! Randolph claims he was impeded, but the goal is given. 

Sunderland 1 - 1 West Ham (Wahbi Khazri, 26 min) 3:25PM

No joy for Palace

Puncheon has an age to line up a left-footed shot from the edge of the box, but Huth steps out to make the block. Leicester still 1-0 up at Selhurst Park.

3:22PM

Huge Hull opportunity

Hull have been battered at Stoke, but Niasse has just missed a glorious chance from about six yards out. Silva's side trail 1-0 at the Bet365 Stadium. 

Miss: Stoke 1 - 0 Hull (Oumar Niasse, 21 min) 3:19PM

Burnley inches away

Barkley does brilliantly to clear Keane's header off the line from a corner. Very good game this, end to end stuff at Goodison Park. 

3:17PM

Everton pressure building

Gueye has a low effort from just inside the area but Heaton makes a simple save down to his left. Still 0-0. 

Attempt Saved: Everton 0 - 0 Burnley (Idrissa Gueye, 15 min) 3:16PM

Watford hit back

Sunderland v West Ham preview

Never mind a win, home supporters would be happy with a goal. Sunderland last troubled the scorers on February 4, 675 soul-destroying minutes ago, a seven-game drought still two short of the unwanted Premier League record held by Crystal Palace. David Moyes' woeful side look doomed 10 points adrift of safety, but victory for West Ham will banish any lingering relegation fears.

Jason Mellor's prediction: 1-1        

Sunderland: Pickford, Jones, O'Shea, Denayer, Manquillo, Cattermole, Ndong, Gibson, Khazri, Defoe, Anichebe. 

Substitutes: Mannone, Djilobodji, Rodwell, Borini, Pienaar, Kone, Januzaj.

West Ham United: Randolph, Byram, Collins, Fonte, Masuaku, Ayew, Fernandes, Kouyate, Snodgrass, Lanzini, Carroll. 

Substitutes: Cresswell, Nordtveit, Feghouli, Adrian, Fletcher, Calleri, Rice.

Referee: Andre Marriner (West Midlands)

Carroll

2:35PM

Watford v Swansea preview

With the question of Walter Mazzarri’s future remaining unclear and Watford having little to play for, a trip to Vicarage Road is an opportunity for the Swans to take three precious points in their battle against the drop. They haven’t won on the road since their January success at Anfield.  

Tom Prentki's prediction: 1-1    

Watford: Gomes, Janmaat, Prodl, Mariappa, Holebas, Capoue, Doucoure, Cleverley, Amrabat, Deeney, Niang.

Substitutes: Success, Behrami, Kabasele, Pantilimon, Mason, Okaka, Pereira.

Swansea City: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Fer, Ki, Fulton, Narsingh, Llorente, Sigurdsson. 

Substitutes: Ayew, van der Hoorn, Borja Baston, Nordfeldt, Routledge, Kingsley, Carroll.

Llorente

2:31PM

Stoke v Hull preview

Stoke, beaten in their last four, have not lost five consecutive top-flight matches since 1985 and will expect to end the run. Hull’s away record is dreadful - only one point won in seven months – but after five home wins in six under Marco Silva they are out of the bottom three and will see a chance here.  

Jon Culley's prediction: 1-1    

Stoke: Grant, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Muniesa, Johnson, Cameron, Adam, Pieters, Shaqiri, Arnautovic, Berahino. Substitutes: Butland, Bardsley, Diouf, Walters, Imbula, Crouch, Sobhi.

Hull: Jakupovic, Ranocchia, Dawson, Maguire, Markovic, N'Diaye, Huddlestone, Clucas, Robertson, Grosicki, Niasse Substitutes: Hernandez, Maloney, Mbokani, Henriksen, Marshall, Elmohamady, Evandro.

Referee: Stuart Atwell (Nuneaton)

Hull

2:26PM

Everton v Burnley preview

It is difficult to look beyond an Everton victory. Free-scoring and irresistible on occasions, Ronald Koeman’s men tend to hold sway at Goodison, while Burnley are dreadful travellers. The Blues have scored 23 goals in their last six home outings, in sharp contrast, the visitors have managed just 9 on the road, all season.

Steve Sutcliffe's prediction: 3-1    

Everton: Robles, Holgate, Jagielka, Ashley Williams, Baines, Gana, Schneiderlin, Davies, Barkley, Lukaku, Mirallas. 
Substitutes: Barry, Valencia, Stekelenburg, Calvert-Lewin, Lookman, Pennington, Kenny.

Burnley: Heaton, Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward, Brady, Barton, Hendrick, Boyd, Vokes, Barnes. 
Substitutes: Flanagan, Gray, Defour, Westwood, Tarkowski, Pope, Agyei.

Referee: Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear)

Everton

2:20PM

Crystal Palace v Leicester preview

Fresh from a dogged showing in Madrid's Calderon, the Leicester City roadshow now rolls into the cauldron of south London. There it will face a Crystal Palace team still delighting in their thrashing of Arsenal, and looking for a victory that would take them above the champions in the table. 

Sam Dean's prediction: 2-0  

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Ward, Kelly, Sakho, Schlupp, Milivojevic, Cabaye, Townsend, Puncheon, Zaha, Christian Benteke. 

Substitutes: Speroni, Van Aanholt, Flamini, Campbell, McArthur, Sako, Delaney.

Leicester City: Schmeichel, Simpson, Benalouane, Huth, Fuchs, Mahrez, Ndidi, King, Albrighton, Vardy, Ulloa. 

Substitutes: Chilwell, Drinkwater, Musa, Amartey, Okazaki, Zieler, Gray.

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)

Vardy

2:13PM

Preamble 

The team news is in for what is a big old day in the relegation fight with four of the bottom five in action at 3pm. 

Sunderland look doomed whatever their result against West Ham at the Stadium of Light today, but Swansea and Hull are separated by just two points above and below the drop zone, with Palace still needing another win or two up in 16th place. 

Swansea are at mid-table Watford, who Paul Clement will be hoping have donned their flip-flops ready for the beach season.

Hull travel to free-falling Stoke, while Palace host champions Leicester with Sam Allardyce looking to beat the Premier League champions at home for the third straight season. 

Everton meanwhile can move up to sixth and three points clear of Arsenal if they beat the league's worst away side Burnley at Goodison Park. 

2:12PM

No Slimani for Leicester

Manager Craig Shakespeare confirms that the Algeria striker picked up an injury in training today and is out for the trip to Crystal Palace.
