Sunderland dragged down by ‘long, hard season’, says David Moyes – video

The Sunderland manager, David Moyes, reflects on a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth which confirms his side’s relegation from the Premier League. Moyes apologises to fans for not doing ‘a better job’, but refuses to criticise his players, saying they fought until the very end

Break a leg: David Tennant and others on the night before the big day

From soldier Catherine Smith to cyclist Chris Froome and astronaut Andrew Feustel, how do people under pressure prepare?

The night before the first public performance, you’re actually in the theatre, doing technical rehearsals and making sure everything runs smoothly. It’s all very busy – it’s not a night off. But I think that’s best because, for me, it’s really an exercise in panic management. You’re trying to convince your brain that it’s possible to remember a sequence of words and movements in front of 850 people without having a heart attack. I don’t think I’d want to be sitting at home trying to be calm, because I’m sure that wouldn’t work.

Middlesbrough v Manchester City: match preview

Middlesbrough may have enjoyed pushing fellow strugglers – and north-east rivals – Sunderland to the brink of relegation with a 1-0 win in midweek but the three points have come too late to make much difference for Steve Agnew’s side. Boro remain six points from safety and after facing Manchester City they still have games against Chelsea and Liverpool. The chances of a miraculous survival look slim. Rich Flower

Kick-off Sunday 2.05pm

Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal: match preview

Mauricio Pochettino said he had not heard of “St Totteringham’s Day” – the annual bit of gloating from Arsenal fans about their team’s supremacy over Tottenham. But the Spurs manager is surely about to dismantle it. Win the derby and Spurs will finish above their neighbours for the first time in 22 years. Pochettino wants more. His sights are set on “finishing above all 19 clubs”. He clings to the belief his team could yet reel in Chelsea. David Hytner

Chelsea v Everton: match preview

A crucial day in the title race begins here where Antonio Conte’s leaders face what appears their toughest remaining league fixture. Everton may be mediocre on the road but they revel in the comforts of home, winning their last eight, with Romelu Lukaku scoring 14 goals in his last nine Goodison appearances. Tottenham will crave a ninth straight win for Ronald Koeman’s team ahead of the north London derby but another wild Conte celebration would be more than justified should Chelsea prevail. Andy Hunter

Manchester United v Swansea City: match preview

Manchester United’s exhausting season continues against Swansea City, who they defeated 3-1 in November. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (two) and Paul Pogba scored United’s goals but both are injured now. Given that eight players are unavailable, including the suspended Marouane Fellaini, José Mourinho is down to the bare bones before Thursday’s Europa League semi-final trip to Celta Vigo. Swansea are third-bottom and fighting for their lives so this may be a cagey encounter. Jamie Jackson

Kick-off Sunday midday

Watford v Liverpool: match preview

The Manchester derby draw has theoretically taken Liverpool’s top-four destiny out of their own hands, unlikely as it is that the Manchester duo will win all their remaining five games. However, following the home defeat to Crystal Palace, Liverpool cannot afford another slip-up at Vicarage Road against a Watford side who have reached 40 points yet look unlikely to get too many more. Yet Jürgen Klopp will have unpleasant memories of last season’s 3-0 mauling at Vicarage Road and it should serve as a warning against complacency. Paul Chronnell

Kick-off Monday 8pm

Stoke City v West Ham United: match preview

Five defeats in the past six games have put Stoke’s chances of finishing in the top 10 for a fourth successive season in serious jeopardy and West Ham United will move above them in the table with a win. This could bode ill for Mark Hughes, especially after the Stoke manager spoke of “raised expectations” among fans. The visitors will miss the physical presence of Andy Carroll in attack and will be hoping their record signing, André Ayew, can fill the void. Rich Flower

West Bromwich Albion v Leicester City: match preview

Craig Shakespeare returns to the club where he made more than 100 appearances and worked as community officer, academy coach and reserve coach, even caretaker manager for one game, in search of the three points that would end any relegation fears for Leicester City. West Brom have lost their way a little, losing the last three and failing to score in four successive league matches – five would be a club record. Matt Phillips and Hal Robson-Kanu are out while Wes Morgan is a doubt for Leicester. Stuart James

Sunderland v Bournemouth: match preview

Sunderland will be relegated from the top flight should they lose and 17th-placed Hull City either draw or win against Southampton. David Moyes’s side won at the Vitality Stadium earlier this season and Bournemouth’s away form has been in a slump ever since. Sunderland must be looking at this match as the last possible chance of redemption for the weary fans of Wearside. Jacque Talbot

Southampton v Hull City: match preview

Hull City need an away win having lost six and drawn one of Marco Silva’s seven league games and can call on Oumar Niasse, who had his red card rescinded for last week’s sending off, as they battle for safety with Swansea, who are at Manchester United on Sunday. Saints are on 40 points, have lost their last two but have yet to knock off if their efforts in the 4-2 defeat at Chelsea are to be believed. Mark Tallentire

Crystal Palace v Burnley: match preview

Burnley’s quest for an elusive first away win of the season will continue without Joey Barton at Selhurst Park and with recent poor form – one victory in 11 games – anchoring their mood. Yet one more win should ease the lingering nerves at both clubs, and the visitors will hope to exploit Crystal Palace’s crippling injury list at centre-back. Much may depend on how Palace recover from their midweek exertions against Tottenham Hotspur. Dominic Fifield

Manchester derby: Mourinho questions Agüero after Fellaini red card – video

Manchester United manager José Mourinho questions Manchester City’s Sergio Agüero after Marouane Fellaini’s red card during the Premier League clash between the two sides on Thursday. The United midfielder was sent off for a head-butt in a goalless derby and Mourinho feels that Agüero’s reaction to the incident played some part the referee’s decision to send Fellaini off
