Wolves lead 1-0 at Portman Road. Ivan Cavaleiro kickstarts the move, before Barry Douglas tees up Matt Doherty who heads home. Elsewhere, in the FA Cup, Millwall are in front at home to Rochdale. And Hull are ahead against Nottingham Forest, courtesy of Jarrod Bowen.
GOAL! Wigan Athletic 1-0 West Ham United (Grigg, 7)
Will Grigg’s on Fire! Nananananana …
James Maddison has scored an absolutely superb goal for Norwich City at Brentford. He nutmegs Woods before bending the ball into the top corner from 30 yards for ninth of the season. No wonder Moyes likes him:
A couple of early goals elsewhere: Swindon lead Crewe, thanks to Marc Richards while Barnet, bottom of League Two, are in front at Cheltenham Town. Bristol Rovers, meanwhile, trail Doncaster in League One.
GOAL! Southampton 1-0 Watford (Stephens, 4)
The first FA Cup goal of this afternoon klaxon. The Saints defender turns the ball home on his 24th birthday, after Shane Long’s shot was saved.
Championship leaders Wolves visit Portman Road this afternoon fresh from a warm-weather training camp in Marbella. The bad news is that it’s back to reality in Ipswich. “It was a decision that we made to go to a camp and work in a different environment,” said head coach Nuno Espirito Santo. “One of the issues is the weather. We need vitamin D, we need the sun. We need to work in an environment with better weather conditions.”
Five minutes until kick-off in the majority of games this afternoon. Will there be any FA Cup upsets? Wigan at home to West Ham seems the most likely. Meanwhile, in La Liga, Valencia v Real Madrid is a 3.15pm start.
Birmingham City, struggling at the wrong end of the Championship, travel to Huddersfield in the FA Cup this afternoon, for perhaps a little respite. “I think that there were Lee Clark’s players in here, Gary Rowett’s, Gianfranco Zola’s and Harry’s [Redknapp],” manager Steve Cotterill says, of the dressing room when he took over in September. “But my lesson this year is don’t change it all in one hit. The job is unbelievably difficult when you’re bottom of the Championship.”
Dortmund lead against Freiburg inside nine minutes, thanks to Shinji Kagawa. Arsenal target, the striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is part of the team this afternoon. “Either our demands are met, then there may be still a transfer,” Michael Zorc, Dortmund’s sporting director, says. “But, if they are not fulfilled then Auba plays until the summer in Dortmund. We have told the Aubameyang family, and they have accepted this.”
In the Championship, Wolves travel to Ipswich while Bristol City host Queens Park Rangers, and they are sure to give Ian Holloway, the former Bristol Rovers manager a warm welcome. Elsewhere, Barnsley host in-form Fulham while Norwich travel to Brentford. All four of those get under way in half an hour.
Full-time result: Peterborough United 1-5 Leicester City. A fine debut for Fousseni Diabaté, the 22-year-old midfielder signed this month by Claude Puel, who scored twice. Ndidi wrapped things up in injury-time:
Some headline team news: Javi Gracia has made four changes to the Watford starting XI, as he takes charge of his first game in charge of the club at St Mary’s this afternoon. Southampton’s club-record signing, £19m man, Guido Carrillo begins his new life on the bench. At Wigan, David Moyes partners Javier Hernandez in attack with Toni Martínez. At Notts County, Carvalhal names a strong Swansea team, with Tammy Abraham and Wilfried Bony leading the line at Meadow Lane. Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi are up front for Kevin Nolan’s side, while Alan Smith’s on the bench. Lovely stuff.
In La Liga, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema all start against Valencia. The eye-gouging BBC acronym is back. The hosts claim that Francis Coquelin will play at centre-back, alongside Garay.
There are about 15 minutes left to play at London Road, where Peterborough are trying to nick another one at 3-1 down:
Ah, the warming scent of the magic of the cup. “Are you with me?” as Neil Warnock, whose Cardiff City team are not in action until Sunday would say. But don’t worry, for there are some upsets just waiting to happen this afternoon too.
Look no further than Wigan Athletic at home to West Ham United and Swansea City’s trip to Notts County, although in fairness Carlos Carvalhal has been mightily impressive since taking charge there, losing one of his first six matches in charge.
There is also plenty going on in the Football League – a smattering of games in the Championship, plus almost a full round of matches in League One and League Two – yet the FA Cup understandably dominates the fixture list.
But we will be keeping one eye on Europe too, none more so than Real Madrid’s visit to Valencia. Defeat for Zinedine Zidane’s side would only up the ante of talk linking Mauricio Pochettino with that job. As for the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich host Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig welcome Hamburg with open arms. In Ligue 1, PSG host Montpellier, looking to improve on the 0-0 meeting last time these two met in September.
