BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE REVIEWS

BURNLEY 1 ASTON VILLA 1

GOALS:- BURNLEY: INGS PEN 87th. VILLA: COLE 38th.

Burnley extended their unbeaten run to three games thanks to a late Danny Ings penalty and deny Aston Villa a first win in nine matches. Joe Cole scored on his first Barclays Premier League start for Villa. But Graham Scott, refereeing his first Premier League game, awarded Burnley a late penalty when Villa defender Jores Okore hauled down Lukas Jutkiewicz.

LIVERPOOL 1 STOKE CITY 0

GOAL:- LIVERPOOL: JOHNSON 85th.

Brendan Rodgers left Steven Gerrard on the bench on the 16th anniversary of his Liverpool debut, but after the captain's arrival, the Reds stole a late winner through defender Glen Johnson. Despite their first win following three straight defeats, Liverpool are stuck in 11th place in the Barclays Premier League.

MANCHESTER UNITED 3

HULL CITY 0

GOALS:- UNITED: SMALLING 16th; ROONEY 42nd; VAN PERSIE 66th.

Manchester United moved into fourth place with a one-sided victory over Hull City, who suffered their fourth straight defeat at Old Trafford. It was the Hull manager's 21st failed attempt to beat his old club and began when Chris Smalling scrambled the ball over the line. Wayne Rooney added a second before the interval and Robin van Persie completed the win.

QUEENS PARK RANGERS 3 LEICESTER CITY 2

GOALS:- QPR: MORGAN OG 37th; FER 47th; AUSTIN 73rd. LEICESTER: CAMBIASSO 4th; SCHLUPP 67th.

Queens Park Rangers moved off the foot of the Barclays Premier League thanks to Charlie Austin's 73rd minute winner. Leicester took the lead early on through Esteban Cambiasso but a Wes Morgan own goal drew QPR level. Leroy Fer put Rangers ahead but Jeffrey Schlupp levelled before Austin gained three valuable points for the Hoops.

SUNDERLAND 0 CHELSEA 0

Sunderland became the first team this season to stop Chelsea scoring as they earned a deserved 0-0 draw. Gus Poyet's team frustrated and tested the Premier League leaders with a display of discipline and organisation. Chelsea could not find a way through the Black Cats defence, the closest they came was a first-half drive from Willian which struck the post.

SWANSEA CITY 1 CRYSTAL PALACE 1

GOALS:- SWANSEA: BONY 15th. PALACE: JEDINAK PEN 25th.

Crystal Palace produced a fighting performance to earn a point from a lively encounter at the Liberty Stadium. Swansea dominated the early exchanges and went ahead when Wilfried Bony shot on the turn into the bottom corner for his sixth goal in the last seven games and 18th of 2014. But Jonjo Shelvey fouled Marouane Chamakh in the penalty area and Mile Jedinak converted from the spot to equalise for Palace.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0 ARSENAL 1

GOAL:- ARSENAL: WELBECK 60th.

Arsenal avoided a third straight Premier League loss by beating West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns. The Gunners started the fixture with their lowest points tally after 12 games in 32 years, but Danny Welbeck's powerful header gave them victory. Welbeck - denied by a Ben Foster save in the first half - powered in Santi Cazorla's cross after half-time.

WEST HAM UNITED 1

NEWCASTLE UNITED 0

GOAL:- WEST HAM: CRESSWELL 56th.

West Ham moved into fifth place in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday thanks to Aaron Cresswell's first goal. The former Ipswich defender struck in the 56th minute to end Newcastle's run of five successive league wins. The visitors finished with 10 men when captain Moussa Sissoko was shown two yellows in the space of 46 seconds.
