FT - Cardiff 0 - 2 Newcastle

Newcastle follow up Monday's promotion ensuring win with a pretty comfortable victory in Cardiff with goals from Atsu and Hayden.

It's a record away win count this season for the Magpies who might have applied a little pressure on Brighton who can win the title at home to Bristol on Saturday evening. 

65' GOAL - Cardiff 0 - 2 Newcastle

Newcastle are putting on a show for their magnificent travelling support as Isaac Hayden doubles their lead in Cardiff and doubles his tally for the season.

Over to you Brighton...

55' GOAL - Cardiff 0 - 1 Newcastle

The deadlock is broken in the Welsh capital as Chelsea loanee Christian Atsu scores a peach of a free-kick to give the visitors the lead.

The Geordies are in good voice!

HT - Cardiff 0 - 0 Newcastle

It's 0-0 at half time in Cardiff and it's been far from entertaining. Newcastle don't seem too concerned about winning the game and pushing Brighton for first place at the moment.

Latics Look Destined For The Drop

Reading v Wigan

An important game at both ends of the table this one. Reading will secure their play-off place if they do not lose. Meanwhile Wigan must win to have any chance of survival.

Stat Zone

-Reading have lost just two of their home games since Jaap Stam took charge

-Won 12 of their last 15 at home

-Yann Kermorgant has scored seven goals in his last seven games


-Wigan have lost their last three away games

-Graham Barrow has won two of seven since he took charge

-Will Grigg hasn’t scored in his last 23 games.

H2H- The home side has only won one of the last six fixtures between the sides - Reading have not beaten Wigan at home since 2007.

Reading will be keen to secure their play-off place and should take advantage of a Wigan side who look destined for the drop. Prediction: Reading 2-0 Wigan

Juve Counting The Coffers
Reasons to be cheerful

Bayern Munich have completed the permanent signing of Kingsley Coman from Juventus for a total of €35m. Taking into account the Frenchman was signed on a free from Paris Saint Germain that means Juventus have returned a profit of €133m for the sames of Coman and Paul Pogba.

That's some business!

Liverpool Defender Signs New Contract

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has signed a new long term contract with the club.

FULL TIME: Manchester City 0 Manchester United 0

Lots of huff and puff but no goals as the Manchester derby finishes 0-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

United finished the game with 10 men after a red card for Marouane Fellaini with 10 minutes remaining for a headbutt on Sergio Ageuro.

After being on the backfoot for most of the night, Jose Mourinho will be the happier of the two managers. 

Both teams stay fourth and fifth respectively in the Premier League.

NEAR MISS Jesus Denied

Gabriel Jesus had the ball in the net but he was ruled offside. A huge let-off for the 10-man reds as the game enters six minutes of injury time.

Fellaini's Folly
RED CARD Fellaini Is Off

A brain snap from Maroune Felliani - he's been red carded for appearing to head butt Sergio Aguero, moments after fouling the City striker

United will have to play out the last 10 minutes with 10 men. 

In response, Gabriel Jesus is on for Raheem Sterling. What a story it would be if he can score on is return from injury.

Keeper Change For City

Manchester City have been forced into a change with goalkeeper Claudio Bravo leaving the field on a stretcher,

Willy Cabellero replaces him. Leroy Sane has also gone off to make way for Jesus Navas.

Manchester United have brought on Jesse Lingard for Anthony Martial with 10 minutes to play.

Stalemate With 20 To Play

Into the final 20 minutes at the Etihad and we are no nearer a goal.

City have been dominating possession but so far United had thwarted them with some well organised defence.

Second Half Underway At The Etihad

Teams are out for the second half at the Etihad Stadium.

The home side have been doing most of the pressing but United have had a couple of half chances.

HALF TIME: Manchester City 0 Manchester United 0

A pretty tame first half at the Etihad Stadium has ended 0-0.

The Blues dominated possession but United had a couple of chances towards the end of the half. Maybe Gareth Southgate had the right idea?
