Saturday’s 10 a.m. EDT kickoffs have two penalties, a red card, and several relegation strugglers hoping for breathing room.

Sunderland 0-0 WatfordSTREAM

The Hornets have provided more of the danger, but hosts Sunderland have made it anyone’s game with a better final 15 minutes or so.

West Ham United 0-0 Hull CitySTREAM

Dieumerci Mbokani nearly took advantage of a big Irons’ giveaway, but dinked his shot off the near post.

Stoke City 2-0 Leicester CitySTREAM

Fortune turned its head toward Leicester so often during their title run last season. Those “breaks” are not going for the Foxes this season. Jamie Vardy was sent off, and it wasn’t long before Stoke took advantage. Bojan Krkic‘s cross was handled by Danny Simpson, and Bojan converts the penalty to make it 1-0 to the Potters.

Joe Allen later tapped in from close range to seemingly limit the second half drama at the Britannia Stadium.

Middlesbrough 2-0 Swansea CitySTREAM

Bob Bradley‘s Swans came out brightly, but this relegation six-pointer is looking destined for the Riverside Stadium set. Alvaro Negredo scored with an agile and aesthetically-pleasing goal (below) before converting a poorly given away penalty by Jordi Amat.
