Premier League LIVE: Norwich lead Everton, Newcastle host Watford

Welcome to 90min‘s live coverage of all the Premier League action on Saturday.

The action got off with a real bang, with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea travelling to the Etihad Stadium to face runaway leaders Manchester City in what was already being billed as a potential title decider.

The 3pm (GMT)-kick-offs see Newcastle host Watford, Norwich battle Everton and Wolves face Southampton, before the action comes to a close with Manchester United’s trip to Aston Villa at 5:30.

Follow all the key bits of action from the games below.

It’s a proper relegation six-pointer up at St James’ Park as Watford make the long journey to Newcastle.

Eddie Howe’s side can leapfrog the Hornets with a win today and give their season a much rosier complexion – can the Magpies earn just their second win of the season?

Joelinton has already struck the bar for the hosts and Newcastle have started the game on top, but went into the break level.

However, Allan Saint-Maximin put his side ahead just after the interval, dribbling his way through the Watford backline and firing home at the near post.

Basement club Norwich host fellow strugglers Everton as both sides look to spark some life into their horrendous seasons so far.

Rafa Benitez has not won on the road in the Premier League as Toffees boss thus far, and could do with a big result at Carrow Road to ease the pressure on him.

But his side have gotten off to the worst possible start with Michael Keane turning into his own net – how very Everton of him – and Adam Idah doubled the lead moments later!

High-flying Wolves could move into seventh place with a big home win against Southampton.

But Bruno Lage’s men will have to overcome a Saints side who have found some form of late – they’re unbeaten in their last five games.

There was little in the way of goal-mouth action early on in this one, with Rayan Ait-Nouri’s cross just about being turned over the top by Lyanco, but that’s the closest either side came in the opening stages.

But after a lengthy VAR check, Wolves were awarded a penalty for a Jan Bednarek foul on Rayan Ait-Nouri and Raul Jimenez scored from the spot.

Southampton have responded brightly to this setback, with Mohammed Salisu and Nathan Tella both spurning glorious chances to level the scores, while Ait-Nouri fired into the side-netting when put through by Jimenez.
