That will be it for today as there is no 17:15 game tonight so after Eye football's debut live update I will put the computer screen down in despair after Tottenham managed to scrape a 3-0 victory. Damn those Spurs. Well good day and farewell.

16:40 GOAL Bolton 0 - 1 Portsmouth have finally scored in this dull match. The ex- Arsenal player Diarra is the goalscorer.

16:38 GOAL Sunderland 2 - 0 Wigan

What a goal from Daryl Murphy and what a vital goal that could be to avoid relegation. He hammers it from 25 yards and it rattles the bar and goes over the line.

16:30 SUBSTITUTION Kanu - Baros

16:20 GOAL Everton 1 - 0 Reading

Everton respond well and Jagielka headers a good ball into the back of the net

16:19 SUBSTITUTION: Berbatov - Bent

16:17 Everton fans are getting restless at Goodison Park, Everton are struggling to create in this unentertaining match

16:16 Huddlestone forces a save from Caroll from a long range shot

16:15 Alfonso ALves makes his debut for Middlesborugh coming off the bench.

16:11 Its really heating up at the Stadium of Light, both teams creating chances, on this occasion Koumas whips a ball in and Heskey hits the bar. Surely there will be another goal soon?

16:09 This time its a chance for Sunderland but Whitehead slice the ball into the side netting.

16:06 mayhem at the Stadium of Light, King bundles through and hits the ball past the goalie but it his cleared off the line and then the ball comes out to Kilbane who its the post. Unlucky for Wigan.

16:05 All prem games are back underway

15:48 Half time at all Premier League fixtures

15:43 GOAL Sunderland 1 - 0 Wigan

Dreaful defending from Wigan as Sunderland swing a free kick into the box and Etuhu latches onto the ball and powers the header home

15:36 Birmingham are on top against West ham and a lovely interchange between Mcsheffrey and Forsell results in a diagonal ball played to the head of Forsell who heads the ball into the arms of Green. He should have scored.

15:35 Fulham play some beautiful football making about 20 passes before Simon Davies hits it from 25 yards and it only goes inches wide.


Prica - O'Donavon

15:26 Argh! Derby should have scored after Barnes was played clean through but he misses the target! What a chance!

15:20 Penalty shout for Wigan turned down as King is brought down, I thought that was a penalty but the ref clearly didn't.

15:19 Thought I might mention that Ebbsfelt Utd who are owned by have scored to go 1-0 up. I have a small stake in that club and I am elated come on the true United!

15:18 Surprise surprise Totenham are on top against Derby and nearly score as Bent has a good chance to put Spurs ahead.

15:17 GOAL West Ham 1 - 1 Birmingham

15:11 Reading have started the game brightly, Stephen Hunt nearly scores from a free kick.

15:07 Scharner smashes the ball hitting it from 30 yards, that was very close only just flying past the post. That would have been goal of the season had that gone in.

15:06 GOAL West Ham 1 - 0 Birmingham

Ljungberg bags his first goal for West Ham latching onto a good header from Cole and the Swede taps it in. Further woes for Mcleish

15:03 Early chance for Sunderland after Scharner handles the ball outside the box. The resulting free-kick is blocked

15:02 All the games in the Premier League are underway.

14:54 As the Premier league matches are about to start i am sipping my fantastic hot chocolate, while my friend Monty will most likely be rummaging through his Biology notes, Monty I hope my commentary will be a pleasant distraction ;)


Sunderland boss Roy Keane makes two changes this week - injured duo Kieran Richardson and Liam Miller are replaced by Dickson Etuhu and Roy O'Donovan.

Wigan are unchanged.

West Ham make one change from last week , Lee Bowyer replaces Mark Noble who is rested

Birmingham make two changes, Gary McSheffrey replaces the suspended Olivier Kapo while Mikael Forssell is played up front instead of Garry O'Connor.

Everton do not play Yakubu and Joseph Yobo returns to partner Phil , with Joleon Lescott switching to left-back.

Reading make two changes, bringing in Ibrahima Sonko and John Oster for Ivar Imgimarsson and Leroy Lita.

14:39 FULL TIME Aston Villa 4 - 1 Newcastle

14:37 Emre curls one from the right side of the box but Carson makes a fantastic save diving to his right keeping Newcastle at bay.

14:36 GOAL Aston Villa 4-1 Newcastle

Carew smashes the ball into the top corner to complete his hattrick

14:35 PENALTY Stephen Carr foolishly punches the ball in the penalty box and it is Carew who steps up for his hattrick


Bolton only make one change from the team that beat Reading, El hadj Diouf returns to replace Helguson.

Sylvain Distin is injured but Portsmouth have Papa Boupa Diop back from the AFCON. And Milan Baros and Defoe start upfront after the departure of Benjani.

Darren Bent and Robbie Keane start for Tottenham while Berbatov starts on the bench. It is Derby they are facing

14:28 Laursen launches a ball up field and Harewood outmuscles Cacapa and as the ball drops rifles it into the side netting. Unlucky Harewood but great play and strength. He deserves a goal after this performance

14:25 Barry loops a corner to Laursen who heads a dangerous ball back into the box and Harper just manages to get there before Carew

14:22 Reo Coker is not happy as Newcastle win a free kick and confronts Butt. He is given a yellow card, there was no need for that at this stage in the game. Foolish from Reo Coker.

14:20 That third goal has probably wrapped it up for Villa, it baffles me why Viduka is not on the pitch, but hey I am not the manager.

14:19 SUBSTITUTION Emre - Barton

14:18 GOAL Aston Villa 3 - 1 Newcastle

Harewood's strength and determination helps Aston Villa win a corner after Carson cleared the ball. The resulting conrner comes out to Gardner who rifles a volley heading to the corner which Harper makes a good save to push it out for a corner. And again the ball comes out to Gardener who hammers the ball in and Harper makes a great save. Another corner then comes in this time Carew headers in. Third time lucky as they say and third goal. Poor defending it has to be said.

14:11 Milner does well down the left to win a corner which he in turn takes, but after a scrappy few ball back in the ball is cleared.

14:09 Harewood causes problems in the Newcastle box using his strength o weave away from Taylor and then take a snap shot from a tight angle but Harper saves and holds.

14:02 Good ball into the box, a good lay off to Barry but he only tamely hits into Given's arms

13:59 SUBSTITUTION Harper - Given

13:54 GOAL Aston Villa 2-1 Newcastle.

Villa have turned on the style and press hard to win a corner and a great ball in finds Carew who heads it with the back of his heads into the bottom corner. Total rous for King Kev.

13:52 GOAL Aston Villa 1-1 Newcastle

Bouma hits it from outside the area, its a low and soft shot that takes a very lucky deflection off Steven Taylor. Given looked a bit suspect there and King Kev is not happy.

13:49 Second half is about to begin, Aston Villa make two changes: Harewood - Petrov

Gardner - Mellberg

13:33 Newcastle clear and the whistle blows to bring the first half to a close and there are some boos ringing around Villa Park, I wasn't expecting that

13:32 One minute of stoppage time in the first half remains

13:30 Great free kick from Young finds Carew open who headers it towards goal but Given manages to palm it away. Good chance for an equaliser

13:28 good passage of play from Newcastle as Milner works it around well but oey Barton's poor pass breaks up the play and it goes out for a Goal kick

13:26 Free kick in a dangerous position for Ashley Young and he whips it in but Given scrambles it away.

13:21 Good chance for Mellberg as a good looking ball reaches him in the box, but it bounces awkwardly and he can only hit the defender and it deflects for a corner.

13:16 Good move from Newcastle down the left but Carr tries a neat back flick to Alan Smith but the pass is poor and it goes out for a goal kick.

13:04: Villa have a penalty shout for two incidences at the same time turned down. Barton pushes Maloney on the floor as Villa are about to take a free kick and then Barry's free kick clearly hits Joey Barton on the hand. In my opinion that should have been a pen, well at least one of them anyway, but almost immediately Barton nearly gets a second for Newcastle as he shoots from outside the box, but Carson saves it.

12:59 looks like this could be a very close with not much separating the two teams except the goal (of course). Both teams look likely to score when they have the ball.

12:50: GOAL Villa 0-1 Newcastle

Owen scores his second in two games. A great ball in from Milner provides Owen with a header which he buries into the back of the net.

12:45 The teams are underway at Villa Park

12:41 Welcome to eyefootball's first ever Live Premier league Update.
