Everton just banned The Sun

Everton have banned reporters from The Sun from attending the club's matches and their training ground following columnist Kelvin MacKenzie’s comments regarding midfielder Ross Barkley.
Can the introduction of Huddlestone and Maguire prove pivotal for The Tigers at the Bet365 Stadium? This tactical tweak from Marco Silva will provide an alternative element to the Hull side going forward.  
Fernando Llorente returns to the starting line up for Swansea which will provide a much needed boost for the side that are struggling in the relegation zone. With 11 goals under his belt so far this campaign, the teams top scorer will be relied on today for the Swans.

Stay tuned for live updates of all of the action. 
SUNDERLAND 0 - 0 WEST HAM
 
Both sides have come out of the traps quickly here, with action at both ends in a matter of minutes.
 
Lanzini fires a free kick over the wall, but he is denied by Pickford. The Sunderland keeper has been in a rich vein of form lately, but I am sure he will be under the cosh from the start here. 
CRYSTAL PALACE 0 - 0 LEICESTER CITY
 
The home side enter this clash brimming with confidence and unchanged following their victory against Arsenal - which comes of no surprise. The Foxes have started a strong side, despite the second round of the Champions League clash on Tuesday.
SUNDERLAND 0 - 1 WEST HAM
 
GOAL
 
The Hammers have taken an early lead at the Stadium of Light and it's Ayew the with the strike. Carroll gets his head to the cross, knocks it down for the 27-year-old, who looks up and buries it from close range. Top start from Slaven Bilic's men. 
STOKE CITY 1 - 0 HULL CITY
 
GOAL
 
Shaqiri picks out an imposing pass to Arnautovic on the left, who cuts in and buries it into the top corner. No chance for Jakupovic.
 
CRYSTAL PALACE 0 - 1 LEICESTER CITY
 
GOAL
 
Huth has opened the scoring for Leicester, following some lapse defending from Palace. The throw in goes into the box and Huth strides into the area and nods it home. 
STOKE CITY 1 - 0 HULL CITY
 
Shaquiri delivers a tremendous ball over the top to Arnautovic, but the scorer fails to score from a close range volley. He should have doubled his tally there.
STOKE CITY 1 - 0 HULL CITY
 
Berahino knocks the ball into the net, but he is flagged offside following the ball through from Shawcross.
CRYSTAL PALACE 0 - 1 LEICESTER CITY
 
Palace are going for the long ball tactic today it appears, with Benteke proving problematic for the Leicester defence. Can he find an equaliser? We'll see.
WATFORD 0 - 0 SWANSEA
 
The first Watford attempt falls for Niang, but his effort is held comfortably by Fabianski. 
EVERTON 0 - 0 BURNLEY
 
Keane's header beats Robles, but Barkley manages to dive back and head the ball to safety. The 23-year-old saved his side.
