15.59: From InfostradaLive:
Manchester City have scored 20 second half goals this season – only Manchester United (21) have more in the division.
15.54: It's now half-time at QPR where the hosts are drawing 1-1 with Aston Villa.
We've not heard much from the Hawthorns but Stoke had the best chance in the first 45 minutes with Kenwyne Jones' heading just wide of the post.
15.51: From Sportsmail's Dominic King:
Half time, neither Roberto Mancini or David Moyes look especially pleased. Mancini just had a row with David Silva. Lots of gesticulating.
15.48: Half-time in all the Premier League games except at QPR following that six-minute delay following Mbia's injury.
The midfielder has been taken straight to hospital with what we understand is a neck injury after a clash with Gabriel Agbonlahor.
15.45: GOAL! LIVERPOOL 1-0 Southampton
Seconds after Suarez hits the bar from a free-kick, Glen Johnson crosses for Daniel Agger to head home.
15.44: GOAL! MANCHESTER CITY 1-1 Everton
Edin Dzeko is pulled down by Fellaini and Carlos Tevez equalises from the penalty spot.
15.43: PENALTY (Manchester City)
15.40: From Sportsmail's Sami Mokbel:
Worrying moments for M'Bia. Being stretchered off with a serious looking neck injury. Paramedics on the field.
For the record, Shaun Derry has replaced him on the pitch.
15.38: The game has stopped at QPR as Stephane Mbia is being attended to by a large medical team.
It looks very serious as there is a stretcher waiting to take him off the pitch. I will try and bring you more news on the QPR midfielder's condition as soon as it comes in. Let's hope he is okay.
15.35: GOAL! Manchester City 0-1 EVERTON
Completely deserved too. Marouane Fellaini needed two attempts to beat Joe Hart in the box but he bundles the ball home following Leighton Baines' cross.
15.34: And from Sportsmail's Laurie Whitwell at the Emirates Stadium:
Arsenal finally into their grove. Getting about Swansea more. Jenkinson again architect for Cazorla header but straight at Tremmel.
15.32: From Sportsmail's Dominic King:
Been an assured start from Everton, different proposition from last season. Manchester City a little disjointed. Silva & Nasri been quiet so far.
No way past: Wojciech Szczesny keeps out Angel Rangel's strike for Swansea
15.29: Negative reputations are biting back this afternoon as Luis Suarez is denied a penalty for Liverpool.
The striker plays a neat one-two with Lucas before seeing his shot saved – despite being held back inside the box.
15.26: Seconds after Gareth Bale is booked for diving again (I'm not sure it's the correct decision) Fulham blow a great chance.
John Arne Riise's low cross finds Mladen Petric, but the Croatian's low strike is well stopped by Hugo Lloris.
15.24: Villa nearly retake the lead instantly as Benteke heads home for the visitors but it is ruled out for offside. I'm not certain it is you know, I would like to see it again.
15.21: GOAL! QPR 1-1 Aston Villa
It's a deadpan look from Harry Redknapp but he must be relived at seeing his first goal as Hoops boss after Jamie Mackie heads the hosts level from Samba Diakite's cross.
15.19: William Gallas does indeed replace Dawson for Spurs.
15.18: More injury woe than goal so far as Michael Dawson's injury hell looks like it has started another chapter.
The Tottenham defender has gone down injured at Fulham and he is gesturing towards the Spurs bench to make a sub. Big shame for the centre-back.
15.16: Only Wojciech Szczesny is keeping Arsenal level at home to Swansea. Angel Rangel is found in acres of space for the Welsh outfit, but he is denied by the Polish stopper before winning a corner.
15.14: Great game at Craven Cottage. Spurs looked in control early on but the hosts counter and waste the best chance of the game so far as Kerim Frei fires off target.
Aussie rules: Brett Holman fired Aston Villa ahead
15.12: GOAL! QPR 0-1 ASTON VILLA
Cracking strike from Brett Holman. The midfielder benefits from good hold up play from Christian Benteke and scores his first goal for the club with a great strike that the hands of Robert Green failed to keep out.
15.11: Bright start from Spurs and there is nearly a goal for the returning Clint Dempsey. The American turns Philippe Senderos before curling just wide.
15.09: Bad news for Manchster City. Aleksandar Kolarov has been forced off early with a groin injury with Pablo Zabaleta replacing him.
15.07: Swansea go very close at Arsenal as Ashley Williams blows a great chance inside the box from eight yards. How the Swans could have done with Michu in that position instead.
15.04: Start how you mean to continue and Southampton have tried to test Pepe Reina from distance with Rickie Lambert firing just wide from 35 yards.
In the balance: Everton's Darron Gibson (left) attempts to control the ball
15.01: Away we go folks.
14.59: The teams are out across the country including at Liverpool where there has been a minutes' applause for Under Nine academy player, Stephen Packer, who very sadly passed away this week.
14.56: Some final pre-match reading from Sportsmail's Dominic King as he looks at the 10 things to look out for this weekend.
14.53: So there are the teams, now check out Martin Keown's preview on the weekend action with his Boot Room.
The former Arsenal defender claims this is the week the table starts to take shape.

Lescott, who has not even made the bench for the previous two games, comes in to replace in-form Matija Nastasic at the Etihad Stadium for his first start for more than a month.
Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko are paired up front while Everton are unchanged from the side which started their midweek draw with Arsenal after Leighton Baines proved his fitness.
Back in the side: Harry Redknapp recalls Shaun Wright-Phillips (right) to the QPR starting XI
14.30: QPR start Robert Green against Aston Villa today after regular No. 1 Julio Cesar fails to overcome a groin injury.
It is the England international's first start since playing Manchester City on September 1, while Harry Redknapp replaces Djibril Cisse with Shaun Wright-Phillips for his first home game at the Rs helm.
Eric Lichaj and Chris Herd come into the Aston Villa starting line-up, while Darren Bent is named amongst the substitutes at Loftus Road.
14.27: Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva makes his first appearance for three months after being selected to face Southampton at Anfield.
The Brazil international has only 74 minutes of previous Barclays Premier League action but is immediately recalled, along with Jonjo Shelvey, as manager Brendan Rodgers makes two changes from the defeat at Tottenham.
Southampton boss Nigel Adkins, a boyhood Liverpool fan, goes with the same team which drew with Norwich in midweek.
14.24: West Brom head coach Steve Clarke makes six changes from the side beaten at Swansea in midweek for the home Barclays Premier League clash with Stoke.
Clarke hands a debut to Swedish international striker Markus Rosenberg and also brings in Steven Reid, Goran Popov, Zoltan Gera, Graham Dorrans and Shane Long.
Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones makes his first league start of the season. He replaces Peter Crouch who had dental surgery after losing two teeth in a challenge with Newcastle defender Fabricio Coloccini.
Gunning for goals: Arsenal's in form winger Theo Walcott (centre) shakes off a knock he suffered at Everton
14.21: Arsenal forward Theo Walcott recovers from an ankle knock to face Swansea in this afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.
Lukas Podolski recovers from a virus after missing the midweek draw at Everton, Gervinho comes into the side with Olivier Giroud on the bench, while Laurent Koscielny (thigh) misses out.
Swansea, just a point behind the Gunners, are without winger Pablo Hernandez as referee Mark Clattenburg takes charge of the match.
14.18: First up we have a London derby already underway at Upton Park where West Ham are doing battle with Chelsea.
The visitors have endured two goalless draws under interim boss Rafael Benitez but there has been two goals in east London.
Click here to see which way they have gone and follow the action live with Martin Domin.
14.15: Just when you have got over the midweek action in the Premier League, Saturday comes around with another bumper set of fixtures.
