    BBC Sport: Alan Pardew: Crystal Palace sack manager with club 17th in Premier League.

    Pardew was appointed on a three-and-a-half-year deal in January 2015 but the 55-year-old has been dismissed after a run of one victory in 11 games.

    Palace have taken just 26 points from the 36 Premier League matches they have played in 2016 and are only one point above the relegation zone.

    Former England boss Sam Allardyce is the bookmakers' favourite to take over. The ex-Sunderland, Newcastle and West Ham boss is among those expected to be considered.

    Chairman Steve Parish told BBC Sport: "We all bought into the decision to play a more expansive style of football. We all believed in it. That hasn't worked. It's no-one's fault. The players have been running their socks off for Alan, the spirit is good. But now we're going to wind the dial back the other way.

    "We're talking to a number of people to make sure we get this right. Nothing has been agreed."

    In a statement, Pardew said: "Personally I have a lot of good feelings for this football club and am sad that my time there has ended. I feel that I have a special bond with the club and hope that hasn't been affected," added the manager, who made more than 100 appearances for Palace as a player between 1987 and 1991 and led them to the FA Cup final last season.
    Sorry to see Alan Pardew go. Looking at his last two appointments, Newcastle and Crystal Palace, his arrival delivers a boost to his new clubs. He couldn't satisfy the Toon Army and they booed him out in 2015, but they got relegated all the same. His return to Palace in 2015 revived the team and they managed to coast home at the end of last season. The slide started a bit early this season and the board is right to seek a change now, if Palace is to remain in the EPL.

    Premier League

    Liverpool 4 - 1 Stoke

    The Reds produced a clinical display to see off Stoke and regain #2 slot behind Chelsea.

    Swansea have sacked their American Manager Bob Bradley. Monday's 4-1 defeat by West Ham was the Swans' seventh in 11 games since Bradley took over 85 days ago on 3 October 2016. They are desperate to get a sweat merchant who may be able to save this dreadful season

    From the Championship, Brighton hit three past QPR to go top of the Table following Newcastle's defeat by Sheffield Wednesday yesterday.

    Bournemouth 3 - 3 Arsenal <== 1pt would taste sweet to the Gunners as they fought back from 3-0 down after 58mins.
    Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Swansea City <== New Swansea boss Paul Clement got a winning start.
    Stoke City 2 - 0 Watford <== Stoke stopped their slide while Watford freefall continues.

    Swansea's win tonight dumped Hull City to the bottom of the EPL Table. Hull City board announced the sack of head coach Mike Phelan after less than three months in the permanent role.
