[ WATCH LIVE: Stream via Live Extra ]

QPR 0-1 Newcastle United

Emmanuel Riviere stands to be the hero on Tyneside, as his 24th minute goal has Newcastle safe for now. Robert Green was knocked out of the game, bloodied and dazed by an accidental Joey Barton knee to the head.

Sunderland 0-0 Leicester City

The desperate Black Cats have out-attempted the visitors 8-3, but the teams look content to share points at the Stadium of Light.

Burnley 0-0 Stoke City

The Clarets continue to fight despite having their Championship fate sealed, but Stoke has a heavy advantage in possession.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 Hull City

The Tigers have a lot of spirit, but so far have been unable to find a goal at White Hart Lane.

West Ham United 0-0 Everton

A chippy affair with three first-half yellows, the Toffees look poised to break through.
