Morgan Amalfitano had a goal and an assist in West Brom's huge win at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Amalfitano was extremely cool with the ball at his feet bearing down on David De Gea. The French winger faked a shot causing De Gea to go low and then he lofted the ball calmly over the keeper for the Baggies' opener. After Wayne Rooney's equalizer, Amalfitano was back at it with a sublime touch to set up Saido Berahino to slot home from the top of the box for the final difference. Amalfitano has two goals and an assist in three matches in the Premier League making him one to watch for all fantasy managers.

Leighton Baines delivered a top performance against Manchester United, scoring the game-winning goal and keeping a clean sheet as the Toffees keep pace with Arsenal for the final Champions League spot in a 2-0 win over Manchester United.

Everton needed to bounce back from their midweek loss to Crystal Palace and they did so in convincing fashion. While United had won the possession battle, the Toffees would not allow them any major scoring chances, as Tim Howard had very little to do. Neither side looked especially threatening until nearly a half hour in, when Romelu Lukaku blasted a shot that Phil Jones got an arm on and a penalty was awarded. Baines converted and is now 13 for 13 in that situation, an unmatched record in the PL. Before the end of the half, Seamus Coleman streaked down the right flank on a counter attack and fed Kevin Mirallas who scored his eighth goal of the season from a very tight angle. It was cruise control from then on. Everton now have the task of winning away to Southampton next week while Arsenal host floundering Newcastle. Advantage: Gunners.

David Moyes' anticipated return to Goodison Park, where he managed Everton the previous seasons, did not go as hoped as Manchester United once again looked outclassed in a 2-0 loss to the Toffees.

In case you needed it to be official, United have been eliminated from a Champions League finish for the first time in 19 seasons. Today, they were winning the possession battle but could not find any creativity to break through the wall Everton put up every time they got close. Jonny Evans made his return to the XI to play the opening hour before being substituted for an attacking replacement. With three games remaining, it looks safe to say Moyes' job is safe through season's end. United look to be locked in to a 7th place finish. Even those who chalked up this year as a transitional one could not have expected such a disappointing outcome.

Aaron Ramsey scored a goal and registered an assist in Arsenal's 3-0 win over Hull City.

This was Ramsey's first start since returning from injury but the Arsenal midfielder was as impressive as ever. He made runs down the middle that Arsenal had missed in his absence and he made Arsene Wenger's side look dangerous once again. Considering Arsenal must win the remainder of their games to qualify for the Champions League, Ramsey should play a big part for the rest of the season. He is a must own player in fantasy at the moment. Arsenal are now four points ahead of Everton but The Toffees have played a game less and the final few weeks of the season are bound to provide for good entertainment.

Liverpool opened up a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League after a hard-fought 3-2 victory at Norwich.

It's Liverpool's to lose now. Brendan Rodgers' men were out of the traps quickly as usual and were 2-0 up within 11 minutes thanks to a fine long-range strike from Raheem Sterling and a neat finish from Luis Suarez. The Reds seemed in control until Simon Mignolet's error allowed Gary Hooper to grab a goal back for Norwich, before Sterling made it 3-1 after a run and shot that deflected off Bradley Johnson, looping over John Ruddy. The Canaries didn't give up and managed to nick another goal back thanks to a Robert Snodgrass header, but despite the pressure in the closing minutes Liverpool survived and are now in complete control of the title race. Norwich remain in deep trouble, just two points outside the relegation zone.

Jose Mourinho was handed his first ever loss at Stamford Bridge as manager of Chelsea, as last place Sunderland pulled off the upset of the season in a 1-2 final.

After 77 unbeaten matches, 61 of which were wins, Mourinho finally tastes defeat on his own pitch, ending one of the more spectacular records in league history. The manager had to turn to Mark Schwarzer to fill in for Petr Cech, who was a late scratch due to a virus. Samuel Eto'o gave the Blues the lead in the 12th minute, converting a left footed volley from a Willian corner and it looked to be business as usual. Sunderland would level six minutes later however, as Schwarzer spilled his save, allowing Connor Wickam to score. Chelsea had their expected share of chances, but Vito Mannone was up to the task after the early Eto'o goal. Compounded with Mourinho's record being smashed, the loss takes the fate out of Chelsea's hands for the title race assuming Liverpool take care of business tomorrow.

After what until now has been a quiet and disappointing first season in the Premier League, US international Jozy Altidore won a penalty for Sunderland which resulted in the game winning goal as the Black Cats pulled off a huge 1-2 upset over Chelsea.

Epic. Sunderland found themselves down after 12 minutes, and with Chelsea's home record under Jose Mourinho, had little reason to feel optimism. However, Connor Wickham, who had erupted with a brace midweek, was in the right place following a shot by Marcos Alonso which was spilled by Mark Schwarzer, allowing for the easy put back. Chelsea stepped up the attack for the next hour, but Vito Mannone was strong in net, stopping shot after shot. Wickham was replaced by Altidore in the second half, and the American was brought down by Cesar Azpilicueta in the box. Fabio Borini converted and Sunderland held on to take three huge points. They are now 3 points behind Norwich with three home games in their last four against Swansea, Cardiff and West Brom. We may keep the Tyne-Wear derby a top flight affair after all.

Kieran Gibbs will miss yet another Arsenal match due to injury with the ankle injury that kept him out of the Everton and West Ham matches persisting for one more week.

With Gibbs out and Nacho Monreal nursing a minor knock Arsenal's left back position continues to be a source of concern. Gibbs' frequent injury troubles and Monreal's lack of pace (along with Wenger's refusal to play a midfielder who can spell defense in front of his left back) has seen Arsenal's left flank be a consistent problem. With the summer transfer window looming you have to wonder where left back and a more two-way left sided midfielder sit in Arsenal's list of priorities.

Rafael's hamstring injury has persisted with the right back to miss Manchester United's match with Champions League hopefuls Everton.

Manchester United's back line has been hard hit by injuries in recent months and Rafael's lingering hamstring injury has been no exception. Like teammate Jonny Evans, Rafael's return to the line-up has been expected for a number of weeks but it seems highly unlikely to actually happen this week. While reports have the Brazilian close to returning it would be foolish to put too much stock into a Week 36 return given the reported probability of return for the last couple weeks.

Christian Eriksen registered two assists, both from set pieces, to help propel Tottenham over Fulham 3-1.

Eriksen continued to add to his case as one of the most dynamic young players in the Premier League by again providing the heartbeat of the Spurs attack. After an uneventful opening half hour, Eriksen delivered a free kick which Paulinho met at the back post after he sneaked behind the entire Fulham defense. Early in the second half, Harry Kane scored what proved to be the game-winner with a header of an Aaron Lennon cross to give him three goals in his first three PL starts. Eriksen then would put it to bed with another well placed free kick that met the knee of Younes Kaboul and caromed in. Eriksen now has eight assists on the season to go along with his seven goals.

Steve Sidwell added to his team leading goal total by scoring his seventh of the season today, but it was not enough to get a positive result as Fulham lost to Tottenham 3-1.

Spurs were caught napping a bit, allowing Fulham to level just moments after Paulinho scored the opener. It was a nice move from Sidwell who, while charging into the box, caught up to his own attempted pass and pushed through the center of the Spurs defense to beat Hugo Lloris for his seventh league goal this season. After then falling behind, the Cottagers had a chance to get back in it when they were awarded a penalty due to a Christian Eriksen handball. Sidwell took it, much to the dismay of teammate Hugo Rodallega, and did not manage to get it past Lloris, who was top class today. Fulham will look to bounce back next week in a must win against Hull City.

Mile Jedinak converted a penalty drawn by Cameron Jerome for the only goal in Crystal Palace's 1-0 win against West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground.

Crystal Palace have been a very strong team since Tony Pulis took over the club. Today's win, fueled by Mile Jedinak's penalty goal took the club to 43 points for the season and officially safe from relegation with three matches remaining. The goal also underscored Jedinak's impressive fantasy debut season. Jedinak has been a "phantom point" monster all season piling up tackles, passes intercepted and blocked shots to soar up the ranks of fantasy midfielders. Adding goals to his methods of scoring fantasy points would make for an extremely impressive fantasy option next season indeed.
