Welcome to The Independent's live coverage of today's 3pm Premier League kick-offs, where Manchester United take centre stage as they look to continue their 16-match unbeaten run against Stoke City, with Mark Hughes looking to claim victory against the side he used to play for.

Bournemouth welcome a Watford side that has not won any of their last six Premier League games to the Vitality Stadium, while Crystal Palace continue to search for their first league victory under Sam Allardyce with in-form Everton travelling south to Selhurst Park, fresh off the back of their 4-0 thumping of Manchester City.

Middlesbrough welcome West Ham to the Riverside, with Slaven Bilic hoping his side can build on last weekend's 3-0 victory over Palace even though Dimitri Payet remains a well-publicised absentee, and West Brom entertain Sunderland at the The Hawthorns with the chance to move out of the relegation zone.

Follow the latest action here, with team news set to land at 2pm.

Schlupp and Remy both make their first Premier League starts for Palace, meanwhile Everton remain unchanged following their victory against Manchester City. Mind due, I do not blame them for that - if it's not broke, don't fix it.

The visitors have the first chance of the game within just two minutes, with Antonio just missing the chance from close range. Middlesbrough look slow from the off.
