Good afternoon everyone and welcome to this latest instalment of Saturday Football Live, as we take you around the grounds with score updates from the Premier League and Football League on Saturday 30 September. I’m Connor Bennett, and I'll be taking you through the 3 pm kick-offs up and down the country.

We've got five 3 pm Premier League kick-offs this afternoon as we build up to the main event at 5:30 pm as Chelsea host Manchester City. We've also got plenty of highly-anticipated action up and down the Football League that we'll keep you updated on. 

As ever in the Premier League, there are plenty of interesting matchups on this Saturday afternoon. AFC Bournemouth host Leicester City, looking to bounce back from their defeat against Everton last time out. The Foxes have already faced four of the top six and will be looking to take advantage of an easier run of games. 

Crystal Palace travel to Old Trafford, looking for their first three points and goal in the Premier League this season. They’ll be without Christian Benteke after he picked up a cruciate injury against Manchester City last week. Roy Hodgson’s side could well spring a shock against Jose Mourinho’s men, after Manchester United had to travel to and from Moscow during the week for a Champions League game. Benteke's opposite number, Romelu Lukaku, is reportedly struggling for fitness so it's worth keeping an eye on. 

Stoke City have not won in the Premier League since their 1-0 home win against Arsenal and face off against an also struggling Southampton side this afternoon. The Saints have scored just once in their past five games whilst the Potter haven’t scored since their trip to Newcastle United. With both sides struggling for goals and clean sheets, this could be a one to watch. 

West Bromwich Albion host Watford at The Hawthorns this afternoon as both sides look to build on their respective good starts to the new campaign. Marco Silva's Hornets side sit 6th in the table whilst the Baggies trail behind in 12th. Watford have already taken maximum points from trips to Bournemouth, Southampton and Swansea City and will be looking for more of the same this weekend. 

Swansea City travel to the London Stadium to take on a West Ham United side that is coming back to full fitness. Slaven Bilic will welcome back key men Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini from injury as the Hammers look for their first win in three. Paul Clement's Swans side have won all of their points away from home this season, winning once and drawing twice.

In the Sky Bet Championship, Cardiff City take on Derby County with the hosts looking to cement their place at the top of the table.

Elsewhere, surprise early starters Sheffield United travel to Nottingham Forest looking to stay on the heels of the leaders Cardiff. 

Despite earlier injury concerns, Romelu Lukaku starts for Manchester United against Crystal Palace. 

In the early kick-off, Tottenham have made it 4-0 now against Huddersfield TownMoussa Sissoko with the fourth. Harry Kane, however, still waiting on a hat-trick. 

Full-Time at the John Smith's Stadium. Spurs comfortable 4-0 winners. Goals from Ben Davies, Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko send Mauricio Pochettino's side third.

16:09. In the Championship, Barnsley boss Paul Heckingbottom has been sent off away at Millwall. Seemed to say something the Fourth Official that the official may have taken offence to. 

16:12. Away from the Premier and Football League, Neil Lennon is making his return to Celtic Park. The Hibernian boss may have been disappointed to be behind in the first-half but his side have drawn level early into the second half.

16:20. GOAL! 4-0 to Wolves now. Ivan Cavaleiro dances down the wing and swings a ball into the box for Leo Bonatini. The Brazillian finds the net and if it wasn't game over at 3-0, it's surely game over now.

16:47. GOAL! Hull lead 6-0 now at home to Birmingham. New Brum boss Steve Cotterill is watching from the stands and he'll be absolutely furious with this. 

16:48. GOAL! The deadlock is broken at the London Stadium!
Arthur Masuaku drills a cross across the Swansea penalty box and Diafra Sakho is waiting to poke the ball home. The Hammers lead!
