Manchester United 2-0 Crystal Palace
Aston Villa 1-2 Newcastle
Fulham 1-1 West Brom
Hull 1-1 Cardiff
Stoke City 0-0 Man City
Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal
Tottenham 2-0 Norwich
Everton 1-0 Chelsea
19:29: And that's all from us for today. We're back tomorrow with minute by minute coverage of West Ham United's visit to Southampton tomorrow afternoon at 4pm.
19:23: That's it! A breathless second half comes to an end and Roberto Martinez has his first win as Everton manager and Jose Mourinho tastes defeat back in the Premier League. We saw both sides of Everton this evening, the patient, passing approach that saw them take the lead at the end of the first half and the tireless resilience that saw them hold onto it in the second. The Blues cannot say they didn't have their chances; they wasted a hatful of them, but Steven Naismith's goal ensured a home win at Goodison Park.
Full time: Everton 1-0 Chelsea (Steven Naismith, 45)
19:20: Mirallas comes off to be replaced by Barcelona prodigy Gerard Deulofeu. Everton have the ball and less than a minute to see this out.
19:19: Three minutes of added time to play.
19:18: Baines strikes a beautiful effort that bounces off the top of the bar. Cech breathes a sigh of relief.
19:16: Naismith boots the ball clear and Mirallas brilliantly holds up play to retain possession for his side. Barkley eventually picks up it up and marches ominiously to Chelsea's goal before he is blocked by Mikel. Free kick.
19:13: The patient, meticulous football from Everton in the first half is virtually gone now, with Martinez's side having their best chances launching the ball up on a counter attack. Signs of desperation encroaching upon Chelsea's game as we enter the last five minutes.
19:11: Chelsea mess up a corner and Barkley pings a beauty of a ball out from defence. Still in his own half Mirallas looks to get on the end of it but is hauled down by Luiz. The Brazilian accepts his inevitable yellow card.
19:09: Incredible pace to this match now. Mirallas cuts in from the left and his stinging effort is impressively blocked by Cech. Minutes later Seamus Coleman tries to break into the box from the right but is hauled down. Hazard booked for the cynical challenge but the resulting free kick comes to nothing.
19:06: Ramires' delivery has been superb today. The Brazilian whips in another wicked cross from the right which Eto'o looks to get on the end of, but an onrushing Howard manages to beat it away.
19:04: Decent spell by Everton who have grown in ambitious following the introduction of McCarthy. The Irishman, Baines and Barry combine well the bring the ball up the pitch where the latter finds Barkley. Not for the first time, the teenager hesitates before shooting and the chance is gone.
19:00: Petr Cech thinks better safe than sorry as he palms away a free kick struck by Mirallas. Everton get three consecutive corners as a result, the last of which is sort-of met by Distin, who claims David Luiz had a handful of his shirt. Whether he did or not, it was nothing Howard Webb was interested in.
18:57: Oscar smashes in a low cross but at full stretch Ramires can only direct the ball into the side netting. Chelsea bring in Fernando Torres for Ashley Cole.
18:54: Jelavic comes off with an assist to his name, replaced by James McCarthy for his Everton debut.
18:53: Branislav Ivanovic picks up a yellow card for a brilliantly deliberate hand ball as he tries to get some contact on a Chelsea corner. The defender claims he was pushed into handling the ball. He really wasn't.
18:51: Chelsea are really dominating possession now, but are still failing to fashion telling chances on goal. Oscar has immediately settled into the game, combining with Hazard with intricate passing but a final ball is still lacking,
18:48: Big shout for a penalty when Oscar, fresh off the bench, is felled in the Everton box. The Brazilian ran onto a ball from David Luiz just as Distin dived in to slide the ball away from danger. The big Frenchman did get some contact on the ball before Oscar did, however, after a second look at the incident.
18:46: Chelsea subs, Frank Lampard on Andre Schurrle and Oscar replaces Juan Mata.
18:43: Barkley really looks like an elegant player. Picking up the ball in midfield he deftly nut megs one of his would-be oppressors with ease before galloping up the pitch. The move ends with a wayward cross from Naismith.
18:41: Mixed performance from Eto'o so far. The former Barcelona and Inter Milan star is combining neatly with those around him, but looks very rusty when presented with goal scoring opportunities. Bear in mind the striker hasn't played any football for a number of weeks.
18:38: Hazard tries an effort from 25 yards which is straight at Howard who fumbled the ambitious strike. It falls to Eto'o who meekly drags his effort wide from an admittedly tough angle.
18:36: Wow, Everton nearly pegged back immediately. Ramires leads the charge on Tim Howard's goal menacingly and again plays a smart ball through to Andre Schurrle. Forced slightly wide, the German looks to dink the ball over the Everton 'keeper but it goes just the wrong side of the post. Chelsea fans mistakenly cheer, always good, that.
18:34: And we are back underway at Goodison Park with no changes from either side.
Half time - Everton 1-0 Chelsea (Steven Naismith, 45)
18:18: Chelsea rue those missed chances as Everton take the lead on the brink of half time. Barkley on the right channel plays a hanging cross to the back post where Jelavic meets it impressively, heading the ball back across goal. With Cech scrambling having been led astray by the cross and subsequent header, Naismith meets the ball with a simple header into an empty net.
Goal! Everton 1-0 Chelsea (Steven Naismith, 45)
18:13: Eden Hazard completes a beautiful one two with Eto'o with an elegant back heel flick, but can't get his shot away. The ball falls to Juan Mata who looks to chip Howard from the left hand edge of the box, but it drifts wide.
18:09: Schurrle is the latest culprit as Chelsea fail to open the scoring from another golden chance. Ramires plays a ball through inbetween Distin and Jagieka into the path of the German, who collects the ball coming in from the left. Howard isn't even drawn into a save as Schurrle's effort flies hilariously over the bar.
18:06: Ramires draws a good save from Howard. Coming in from the right, Eto'o drifts past an Everton defender and dinks in an inviting ball which the Brazilian hits sweetly first time. The American shot stopper palms the effort away from goal for a corner.
18:04: Everton nearly punish the visitors immediately when Kevin Miralles swaps sides, plays a one two with Osman and thrusts into the box. His ball finds Naismith, but he can't direct his effort on target.
17:59: Absolutely fantastic from Gareth Barry. Tim Howard has an absolute nightmare as Everton overplay it in their own box. The goalkeeper's ball to Lieghton Baines is intercepted by Schurrle and the Chelsea man squares it to Eto'o who has an open goal at his mercy. Just as the Cameroonian is about to connect Barry launches in to clear the ball. Brilliant intervention.
17:55: Everton enjoying some luck down the right hand side with Naismith tirelessly making himself available, flanked by Seamus Coleman. In the engine room, Gareth Barry is enjoying a fine debut, diligently working across the midfield ensuring the opposition midfielders don't get a moment to look up and find the plethora of attacking options ahead of them.
17:51: Barkley has the chance to shoot from just outside the area but opts for a wide option, finding Naismith, who's effort could have been better. The young England international should have taken it on himself, perhaps.
17:48: Samuel Eto'o sends an ambitious effort several miles over the bar. By ambitious, I obviously mean awful.
17:44: After their first period of sustained possession Everton force another corner kick after Naismith did well to creep ahead of David Luiz and force Cech into an easy save. Barkley impressively marshalling the midfield, breaking with strength and speed whenever the opportunity presents itself.
17:39: Steven Naismith rampages down the right hand side after being picked out by Ross Barkley. The Scot whips in a delicious ball to the middle where Nikicia Jelavic waits. The Croatian made space beautifully for himself but his header is a tame one, easily collected by Petr Cech.
17:37: Samuel Eto'o has a great chance to silence his Premier League naysayers early doors as he meets a fantastic ball from Ramires with a thumping header that sails over the bar. Bright start for Mourinho's side.
17:35: Everton start at a slower tempo than they may have done in the past against the bigger team under David Moyes, as Chelsea assume earlier control.
17:31: And we are underway at Goodison Park.
17:27: £30m man Willian doesn't even make the bench for Chelsea. An embarrassment of riches on the Blues' bench.
17:21: Although Arsenal finished with a comfortable 3-1 scoreline over Sunderland, Arsene Wenger admits they may have been a bit lucky after Jozy Altidore was penalised in the build up to his 'goal.'
Wenger: "We were a bit lucky at 2-1 maybe, but we found the mental resources to win.
"It could have been a foul for us as well because Altidore took Sagna as well but the referee blew before the goal, I was sure of that because I saw him."
17:16: Chelsea hand a debut to Samuel Eto'o who leads the Blues' attack this evening, while Gareth Barry makes his first appearance for Everton after his deadline day move. James McCarthy starts on the bench.
Everton: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Osman, Barry, Mirallas, Naismith, Barkley, Jelavic
Subs: Robles, Heitinga, Oviedo, Deulofeu, McCarthy, Gueye, Stones
Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Schurrle, Hazard, Mata, Eto'o
Subs: Essien, Lampard, Torres, Oscar, De Bruyne, Schwarzer, Cahill
16:55: That's it from the 3pm games. Arsenal given a scare early in the second half after Craig Gardner's penalty but a sublime performance complete with two goals from Aaron Ramsey saw the Gunners' see out a relatively comfortable afternoon in the north east, but Sunderland will be fuming after Jozy Altidore was penalised after seemingly winning a battle over Bacary Sagna. The American's effort crossed the line but Martin Atkinson awarded the Gunners a free kick.
Tottenham's perfect defensive record continues with a 2-0 win over Norwich while Man City may count themselves lucky to leave the Britannia with a point. Things are looking up for a Hatem Ben Arfa-inspired Newcastle who claimed a valuable away win over Villa while Fulham were forced to share the points with West Brom, as did Hull and Cardiff.
Aston Villa 1-2 Newcastle
Fulham 1-1 West Brom
Hull 1-1 Cardiff
Stoke City 0-0 Man City
Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal
Tottenham 2-0 Norwich
16:50: Paolo Di Canio sent off in the dying minutes while Oliver Giroud is down receiving treatment.
16:49: McAuley rises above the Fulham defence to slam home a terrific header from Brunt's swinging cross.
Goal! Fulham 1-1 West Brom (Gareth McAuley, 90)
16:47: Four minutes of added time at the Stadium of Light.
16:42: Yet another goal ruled offside today, this time at Craven Cottage as Hugo Rodallega's effort is chalked off after he fired a rebound in from an offside position. Hull City's Sone Aluko has an effort disallowed in a similar scenario.
16:36: Brilliant Arsenal goal. Ramsey picks the ball up from deep before playing to Ozil who then finds Giroud. The Frenchman then finds the onrushing Ramsey with a marvellous pass for the Welshman to slot home his second.
16:35: The visitors restore their lead at Villa Park after Ben Arfa worked a brilliant opening from the right and drilled an effort on goal that Brad Guzan could only parry into the direction of Gouffran.
Goal! Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal (Aaron Ramsey, 74)
Goal! Aston Villa 1-2 Newcastle (Yoan Gouffran, 73)
16:32: Paolo Di Canio may like a word with the referee following this game after Jozy Altidore's goal is disallowed after he was called up for tussling with Bacary Sagna on the edge of the area. Replays show the American's effort did indeed cross the line after efforts to clear, but the whistle had already blown for a foul on the Frenchman. Contentious.
16:30: Benteke scores his fifth goal of the season as he towers above the Newcastle defenders to head in from six yards out.
Goal! Aston Villa 1-1 Newcastle (Christian Benteke, 71)
16:27: Aaron Ramsey's terrific season continues as Carl Jenkinson finds the Welshman who connects with a controlled volley from 20 yards out that nestles in the back of the net.
Goal! Sunderland 1-2 Arsenal (Aaron Ramsey, 70)
16:22: Sigurdsson is desperatelty searching for a hat trick and wasn't too far away as he left fly with an effort from 30 yards out that John Ruddy just about deals with.
16:21: Sunderland nearly take the lead! Gardner whips in a deep cross that evades his teammates and Wojciech Szczesny, who watches on as the ball crashes off the inside of the post. So close for Sunderland.
16:19: Amid all that, Cardiff have pulled one back at the KC Stadium through Peter Whittingham who meets a cross at the far post with a fine volley.
Goal! Hull City 1-1 Cardiff City (Peter Whittingham, 59)
16:17: Pellegrini looks like he's going to try remedy his shy attack this afternoon with the introduction of Sergio Aguero, who has started to warm up.
16:14: A flurry of chances across the Premier League. Myhill does well to deny Berbatov at Craven Cottage as Fulham threaten to double their lead after Victor Anichibe threatened to open his West Brom account. Meanwhile Kenwyne Jones leaps above the Manchester City defence to power a head just over Joe Hart's cross bar, just after Stevan Jovetic tried his luck from 15 yards out at the other end.
16:12: Not a great challenge for Koscielny for the penalty incident at the Stadium of Light. In fact, it was terribly unnecessary with the Sunderland captain for the day in Johnson veering away from the goal. The Frenchman has a bit of a habit for this, and it is exactly what Sunderland needed so early in the second half.
16:08: Gylfi Sigurdsson doubles his tally at White Hart Lane.. Eriksen finds Paulinho with another clever ball who swings in a low cross from the right hand side. Sigurdsson is on the scene to add his second from five yards out.
16:07: It's all kick off regarding the north London sides. Laurent Koscielny is penalised for a challenge on Adam Johnson who is moving away from goal. Craig Gardner steps up to fire an equaliser into the back of the net.
Goal! Sunderland 1-1 Arsenal (Craig Garner, 49)
Goal! Tottenham 2-0 Norwich (Gylfi Sigurdsson, 49)
Penalty - Sunderland
14:01: We are back underway as second halves kick off.
15:59: It's a similar story with Eriksen, who already looks to have urged a good understanding with Roberto Soldado.
15:58: Ozil has no problems with the Premier League so far, racking up the first of many assists after 12 minutes.
15:52: Very lively start across the Premier League with opening goals in five of the afternoon's six fixtures. Mesut Ozil and Christian Eriksen have both had bright first halves in English football, somewhat inevitably laying on goals for Olivier Giroud and Gylfi Sigurdsson respectively.
Manuel Pellegrini has watched on in frustration as Man City have struggled to break down Stoke with Joe Hart having to save his side from falling behind themselves. Hull and Fulham have both takes home leads while Newcastle are looking relatively comfortable at Villa Park after Hatem Ben Arfa's second goal of the season.
Aston Villa 0-1 Newcastle
Fulham 1-0 West Brom
Hull 1-0 Cardiff
Stoke City 0-0 Man City
Sunderland 0-1 Arsenal
Tottenham 1-0 Norwich
15:46: Half time whistles being blown across the country.
15:44: There are goals everywhere this afternoon apart from at the Britannia Stadium. Mark Hughes' side doing well to keep Stefan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo quiet while posing a threat of their own.
15:42: A goal at the KC Stadium as former Spurs defender Tom Huddlestone sends a ball into the box that is met by a stooping header by Curtis Davies which finds its way into the back of the net.
Goal! Hull City 1-0 Cardiff City (Curtis Davies, 40)
15:38: Norwich nearly claw their way back into the game. Nathan Redmond sends a ball into the box which finds Ricky van Wolfswinkel after Michael Dawson's slip. The Dutchman's effort seems destined for the net but Danny Rose races back to tip the ball outside of the post. Terrific defending.
15:36: Villa boss Paul Lamber has been forced to reshuffle his side after defender Jores Okore was forced off to be replaced by Ciaran Clarke.
15:34: Dimitar Berbatov has the ball in the back of the net but his effort is ruled offside.
15:33: Joe Hart is forced into making a terrific save from Stoke's Kenwyne Jones after some very sloppy play from Samir Nasri. Manuel Pellegrini's side are not having all their own way this afternoon.
15:29: Tottenham score their first goal from open play this season through Gylfi Sigurdsson. Soldado chested the ball into the path of Eriksen who finds the Iceland international with a beautiful ball right into his path, who fires home from 15 yards with the outside of his boot. Brilliant assist from the former Ajax man.
Goal! Tottenham 1-0 Norwich (Gylfi Sigurdsson, 28)
15:26: MESULT OZIL ALERT. The Germany international has a free kick. Nothing comes to it. That's all.
15:23: Steve Sidwell gives Martin Jol's side a much needed goal. West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill punched away a Fulham corner but the ball would eventually fall to Sidwell at the near post who fired his effort into the back of the net.
Goal! Fulham 1-0 West Brom (Steve Sidwell)
15:19: Hatem Ben Arfa scores his second and Newcastle's second of the season after some good work from Loic Remy. The former QPR man made a nusiance down the left hand side before the ball broke across to Ben Arfa, who tapped home the game's opener
Goal! Aston Villa 0-1 Newcastle (Hatem Ben Arfa, 18)
15:16: Roberto Soldado nearly adds to his tally with an impetuous back heel that bounced off the post after some terrific build up play from Christian Eriksen, who jinked his way into the box before hitting an effort of his own.
15:15: Nearly a swift double for Arsenal as Theo Walcott finds himself one on one with Kieran Westwood. The Irishman manages to keep the striker's effort at bay however and keeps the score at 1-0.
15:12: Ten minutes into his Gunners debut and Mesut Ozil is already at it. The German works hard on the left wing after controlling the ball with a sublime first touch and has the awareness to find Giroud, who fires home to score his fifth goal in six games.
Goal! Sunderland 0-1 Arsenal (Olivier Giroud, 10)
15:10: The prolific Danny Graham fails to add to his impressive haul of one goal in ten months as he pounces on a rebound but sends his effort past Joe Lewis in the Cardiff City goal.
15:07: Tottenham dominating possession in the early stages of their game at White Hart Lane. Andros Townsend hits the first effort of the afternoon, cutting in from the right wing before striking a left footed effort which drifts wide of the post.
15:04: Sunderland's Ki Sung-Yueng hilariously opts to take on a free kick that is so far out Arsenal see fit to leave a one man wall in front of it. The South Korean's effort manages to hit that formidable wall.
15:00: And we are underway across country as the 3pm kick offs get started.
14:58: Arsenal's Mesut Ozil is one of a number of transfer deadline day arrivals making his debut today against a Sunderland side captained by Adam Johnson. Strange, but intriguing, call from Paolo Di Canio.
14:50: Tottenham have handed a debut to Denmark international Christian Eriksen today against Norwich.

14:40: And that's it, United take the three points. Very controversial end to the first half as Palace were reduced to ten men when pantomime villain Ashley Young - booked for diving earlier on - was taken down by Kagisho Dikgacoi. Despite replays showing initial contact took place outside the box, the result was a goal from the penalty spot scored by Robin van Persie, which set the tone for the second half as a tireless Palace worked to exercise a bit of damage limitation.
Only as that determination waned in the final 20 minutes did United manage to carve real openings, and Wayne Rooney's delightful free kick ensured a rather comfortable end to the proceedings. Perhaps it was a good thing Ian Holloway was banned from the side lines after some questionable calls today, and he may have to bite his tongue completely off when quizzed on some incidents later this afternoon.
From United's perspective, a tidy first appearance for Marouane Fellaini will complement David Moyes' first win at Old Trafford nicely, while an impressive debut from 18-year-old Adnan Januzaj in the second half where he looked completely in tune with the Premier League will be an added bonus.
14:32: United in control now. Rather than rampaging down the right hand flank, Valencia sends a wicked pass in field into the path of Rooney who directs a lovely weighed pass to Hernandez with his first touch. The Mexican's effort on goal is a tame one, however, and is comfortably collected by Speroni again.
14:29: Erm, not really what that was from Rooney. United attack from their own half with Januzaj once again leading the charge. The young Belgian plays a beautifully weighed ball into Rooney who enters the box from the left and sends a cross/chipped effort/something else over the far post. Palace looking a bit knackered now.
14:25: United breathe easy as Wayne Rooney curls a fine free kick into the back of the net. Beautiful strike from the striker who whips it low into the left hand side of the net, which Speroni can't keep out despite getting finger tips on it.
Goal! Manchester United 2-0 Crystal Palace (Wayne Rooney, 80)
14:22: Robin van Persie's day is done as he is replaced by Javier Hernandez. Not a bad day at the office, very sharp performance from the Dutchman, particularly in the second half.
14:20: Januzaj looking comfortable in the Premier League so far. Elegantly takes the ball in his stride with a turn to beat his man before spraying a ball out to Valencia. More resolute defending from Moxey sees the ball out for a corner.
14:17: A bit harder to pick Rooney out in his new head gear, but the England international misses a great chance to double United's lead. Carrick plays a searching pass into the box that Fellaini leaves for Rooney, who can't sort his feet out in time before he is surrounded by Palace defenders. The England man tries to find a teammate, but the chance is gone.
14:15: Palace continue to work incredibly hard with 10 men, but can it last? United have one more substitute remaining, the introduction of the former Eagles' star Wilfried Zaha could further test their resolve.
14:13: A quick United corner and Van Persie aimes for the top right corner with a vicious effort that flies just over.
14:10: Januzaj, who enjoyed a fantastic pre-season for United, immediately has an impact, beating his man on the left before swinging a dangerous ball in. It falls to Fellaini, who takes it on his chest before hitting a half volley on the outside of his boot that his palmed away by Speroni. Two substitutes, two Belgians breathing a bit more drive into United.
14:08: 18-year-old Adnan Januzaj looks like he could be introduced shortly. Cameron Jerome has come on for Dwight Gayle.
14:06: Fellaini is introduced to huge ovation at Old Trafford, replacing Anderson who moments ago literally fell over his own feet.
14:04: After having two brilliant runs ignored in quick succession, Patrice Evra finally finds a bit of luck when Young lifts his head and plays the left back through inside the left hand side of the goal. Evra pulls the ball back for van Persie who lies just beyond the penalty area, but the former Arsenal man fires wildly over the bar.
14:01: Marouane Fellaini looking as if he could soon be introduced to make his debut, 50 years to the day some lad named George Best made his United bow. No pressure then.
12:59: Young cuts inside from the left shaping for a shot. Finally lets with fly with a curling effort that drifts just wide of the left hand side post
13:57: Marouane Chamakh booked after a very late tackle on Nemanja Vidic.
13:54: The man of the moment Young put through on goal after a sumptuous ball from Anderson. Shoots straight at Speroni before the ball is gathered by the Palace goalkeeper. Imagine if Young scored a winner today...
13:52: After enough views it looks as if there was contact between Young and Dikgacoi as the England winger broke through on goal, contact that started with an arm across the chest just outside the area. Palace hard done by.
13:50: Jon Moss' assistant bellowed 'I can't help you' to the referee during the penalty incident. Outside the box, minimum contact, blatant dive, unjustified red? Pick your grievance. Poor Jon Moss.
13:48: Palace get the second half underway.
13:39: A frenzied conclusion to the first half as Palace head in a goal and a man down. Replays suggest the penalty may have been a little harsh; Young appeared to get to the ball first but again the England winger was all too willing to go down. For penalising Dikgacoi, the referee was left with little option but to send him off given he had denied a clear goal scoring opportunity. Young's photo could be the centre piece of a number of dart boards in south east London this evening after being booked for simulation earlier in the half, too. Unfortunate for Palace who have denied United all but one goal scoring opportunity in the first 45, and that sole effort came courtesy of one moment of mangiest team football from Moyes' side.
Half time - Manchester United 1-0 Crystal Palace (Robin van Persie, pen, 44)
13:32: Van Persie steps up and strokes the ball into the bottom right hand side of the net, sending Speroni the wrong way. Awful end of the half for Holloway.
13:31: The villian of the afternoon Young goes down in the area once again but this time the referee points to the spot. The United winger was through on goal until Kagisho Dikgacoi pushed into the back of him. Red card for the Palace man.
Goal! Manchester United 1-0 Crystal Palace (Robin van Persie, pen, 44)
Red Card - Kagisho Dikgacoi (Crystal Palace)
Penalty - Manchester United
12:26: Dwight Gayle unlucky not give Palace a shock lead. Rio Ferdinand fails to deal with a lofted ball as it drifts over him to the feet of Gayle who quickly nips past the United centre half, but his dinked effort drifts past the far post with De Gea bearing down on him.
12:23: Absolutely sublime skill from Carrick in the middle of the park as he Marseille turns past two men to set up United's best chance of the half. United work the ball up the field where Rooney lofts a cross over to van Perise who takes the ball on his chest before thumping a volley against the cross bar. Brilliant effort, and much better football from the home side.
13:20: Evra marauds down the left and fires a hard ball across to the awaiting van Persie. Not the ball the Dutchman wants, but he manages to cleverly flick the ball on goal, but it drifts past the right hand side of the post.
13:16: Rooney has a speculative effort from 25 yards well held by Speroni, and his soon driving down on the Palace goal again before playing the ball to the left for van Persie. The Dutchman pulls the ball back for Anderson who is approaching the edge of the box but the midfielder can't take the ball in his stride and is easily disposed.
13:14: Rooney sporting his fetching new head gear.
PHOTO @WayneRooney is back in action for Man Utd - and sporting some distinctive headgear... #MUNCRY pic.twitter.com/AWNfmwqKrZ — Premier League (@premierleague) September 14, 2013
13:12: Crystal Palace get the ball out of their own half but Dikgacoi clashes into the back of Evra, who was trying to retrieve a poor pass from Rio Ferdinand. Ball gets back to David De Gea, who might as well have brought a paper with him. 13:07: Speroni and his Palace defence are comfortably dealing with with crosses from both the right and left hand side of United's attack now, but the away side are struggling to find their way out of their half half at the minute. United arestill to fashion a clear cut chance, however. 13:03: Ashley Young drives into the box from the left hand side but leaves his leg hanging which he wraps around Kagisho Dikgacoi before collapsing to the floor. Big calls from the crowd for a penalty, but referee Jon Moss books the England winger for simulation. Good decision, awful from Young who appeared to have been better off maintaining his run. 13:02: Fabio da Silva and Antonio Valencia are seeing much of the ball down the right hand side of the pitch, but haven't found an opening yet. 12:59: Damien Delaney does well to shepherd van Persie away from goal after the Dutchman menacingly tries to power through. 12:57: Nemanja Vidic and the forgotten Marouane of the afternoon - Chamakh - are already enjoying a competitive duel. The Serbian has batted away any efforts from Palace to get the ball up the pitch while the former Arsenal man has duly attended to his defensive duties, heading the ball away from Vidic after Robin van Persie floated a couple of corners in for him. 12:54: Patrice Evra storms into the box but hits the deck after seemingly colliding with Jedinak. Replays show there was no contact despite big shouts for a penalty. 12:50: Holloway covertly squawks into his lapel to his man on the side-lines Keith Millen as United predictably enjoy early spells of possession 12:46: Michael Carrick hits a sweet effort from outside the box that Julian Speroni has to palm away. 12:42: United explain Kagawa and Giggs' absences.
12:36: Moyes confirms that Rooney will be sporting a headband to protect his recovering bonce. If the pictures the striker uploaded of the Harry Potter-esque cut down his forehead are anything to goo by, it isn't a bad shout.
12:33: 'ANDERSON AHEAD OF KAGAWA WTF #MOYESOUT', or so Twitter eloquently informs me. Shinji Kagawa's exile from the United XI continues, but calm down #FreeShinji campaigners, United claim the playmaker is suffering from the flu and has been sent home.
12:29: Ian Holloway feeling typically confident ahead of this afternoon. "Well, it's just another team. Last year they were champions, but this year they're not - they've got to earn that right. I'm very proud of my players and this is a great place to come. I'll learn a lot about myself and my team today.
I was really excited by the energy of the groupo yesterday. if we can make them play backwards and square and nick a goal on the counter, who knows what might happen?"
12:25: Palace's usually timid manager Holloway will be watching from the stands as he serves the first of a two game ban for saying mean things about Mark Clattenburg following their opening day loss to Tottenham.
12:22: Andre Mariappa is also making his Palace debut after his deadline day move, the only one of Ian Holloway's gaggle of deadline signings to make the XI. Jonny Williams and Jack Hunt are both unavliable after Williams injured ankle ligaments playing for Wales against Macedonia last week, while Hunt broke his ankle in training.
12:19: Wilfried Zaha, could make his Premier League debut against his former club if he comes off the bench this afternoon.
