Dortmund 3-2 Monchengladbach: What a comeback! It’s half time and Dortmund have come back from 2-0 down to take the lead, with England U21 international Jamie Bynoe-Gittens scoring the third.

GOAL! Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea (Isak 12)

Lewis Miley takes out the entire Chelsea backline with a neat pass into the box, and Alexander Isak finds himself one-on-one – he does what he does. It was a terrific bit of work from the 17-year-old midfielder, who fooled a load of blue shirts by shaping up to shoot from the edge of the D before needling the ball through to Isak.

It’s the visitors who are smiling first – Marcus Tavernier slots past the keeper from inside the box.

Over in League One, Blackpool have taken the lead against top-of-the-table Portsmouth, Owen Dale the goalscorer.

Dortmund 2-2 Monchengladbach: This looks a real humdinger in the Bundesliga. Dortmund were 2-0 down after 28 minutes – five minutes later they’re level following goals from Sabitzer and Niclas Füllkrug.

GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-0 Brighton (Elanga 3)

Brighton aren’t having much fun at the moment are they? They’re already a goal down, with Anthony Elanga opening the scoring with a header. Morgan Gibbs-White crossed in from the right, and Elanga popped up from the other wing to apply the crucial touch.

Kick off in the Premier League!

We’re underway in the 3pm games. Let’s play!

Plenty happening in the Dortmund game. Kouadio Koné doubled Monchengladbach’s lead before Marcel Sabitzer got one back for Dortmund. It’s 2-1 to Monchengladbach and we’re only a half hour into the piece.

The latest from Europe: Barcelona have equalised in the 82nd minute against Rayo Vallecano thanks to an own goal from Florian Lejeune. Leverkusen have bagged an early goal against Bremen, while Dortmund are 1-0 down against Monchengladbach.

Steve Johnson writes in: “As a Chelsea fan, I’m not sure what to expect next, so I tried to think of a single line which would cover all your requests: the song ‘(just) bring it on home to me’ by Eddie Floyd seems to fit… (my wife is Christmas shopping right now, so I’m stretching the love life advice a bit…)”

Thanks for the recommendation, Steve – I’ll give it a listen now. Nicolas Jackson to bring home the three points today?

FULL TIME: Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool

All wrapped up at the Etihad, where Liverpool fought back to nick a point – a few words exchanged between Darwin Núñez and Pep Guardiola after the final whistle, dunno what that’s about.

Paul MacInnes has this story from the City-Liverpool clash.

Over in Spain, Barcelona are trailing against Rayo VallecanoUnai Lopez has opened the scoring with a staggering strike from well outside the box, latching onto a bouncing ball and sending it into the bottom right corner. What a hit, my son. Nearly half-time in that one.

Barry Glendenning’s keeping tabs on all the action at the Etihad. Liverpool are pressing hard for an equaliser, and Pep’s starting to look a bit nervy.


We’re back! Yes, the big one’s still happening, but we’ve got FIVE 3pm kick-offs in the Prem for you. There’s Burnley v West Ham, with the hosts praying for an end to their misery – even after Everton’s points deduction, they’re at the bottom of the pile. Luton, still waiting for a joyous three-point day at Kenilworth Road this season, have Crystal Palace coming over. Chelsea – who have been thoroughly watchable of late – head to Newcastle, and a Blues win will close the gap between the two sides to just one point. Brighton, who haven’t won in the league since September, will have their work cut out at the City Ground – Nottingham Forest remain unbeaten at home this campaign. And finally, there’s a tasty one at the lower end of the table – Sheffield United (18th, 5 points) v Bournemouth (16th, 9 points).

We’ll keep tabs on what’s occurring in Europe, the EFL and all that other stuff too. Drop me a line with your thoughts/queries/song requests/birthday shoutouts/love-life advice/whatever you fancy.
