Carlos Vela came off the bench at half time for West Brom as they lost 3-0 to Manchester City. Vela looked bright on his debut against Wigan in midweek, but struggled to get involved at the City of Manchester Stadium despite getting in some excellent positions. Manager Roberto Di Matteo was sacked after the game.
Kyle Bartley was an unused substitute again for Rangers as they drew 2-2 with Celtic.
Aaron Ramsey played the full 90 minutes while Jay Emmanuel-Thomas came on with 15 minutes left as Cardiff City beat Swansea City 1-0. Ramsey has an indifferent first half but improved in the second, playing a lovely one-two with Craig Bellamy for the match winner. Emmanuel-Thomas had a chance to score late on, but lashed wide after cutting in from the wing.
Henri Lansbury started and played 71 minutes as Norwich City lost 2-1 to Bristol City. Lansbury, who scored and got an assist in midweek, didn’t make the same impact against Bristol in a disappointing defeat.
Craig Eastmond started and played 58 minutes for Millwall as they beat Doncaster Rovers 1-0. Eastmond turned in a mixed shift in the holding role for the Lions before subbed off as they searched for the winner.

Ryo Miyaichi played the full 90 minutes on his debut as Feyenoord drew 1-1 with Vitesse Arnhem.

The youngster showed lots of flair and won a free-kick in the second half which resulted in Castaignos scoring.
Francis Coquelin and Gilles Sunu both came off the Lorient bench to play the final five and one minutes respectively. Coquelin replaced Alaixys Romao in the 85th minute and Sunu, on for his debut, replaced second goal scorer Kevin Gameiro with seconds left.

Wellington Silva was an unused substitute for Levante as they beat Villareal 1-0.
Pedro Botelho played the full 90 minutes as FC Cartagena beat Elche 2-1. Cartagena had lost five matches in a row, so Botelho returned to a left back role to help sure up the defence. It worked as he turned in another good 90 minutes in a 2-1 victory.
Samuel Galindo was not part of the UD Salamanca squad that lost 2-1 to Tenerife due to injury.
